Video footage posted on the official Twitter account of the New York Times shows witnesses recounting what happened:

“There’s a madman around here shooting people.”

Memphis Police are currently hunting a suspect who has allegedly been driving around the city and shooting members of the public at random. The individual is allegedly responsible for multiple shootings and is said to be live-streaming his actions on his social media account.

Due to the fact that he is driving around at random, Memphis Police have no way of giving an exact location warning to the public as to the whereabouts of the active shooter in the Tennessee city.

The 19-year-old male suspect has been identified as Ezekiel Kelly and is thought to be driving a grey Toyota SUV that he carjacked. He is considered armed and dangerous. Footage of one of his shootings is already circulating on Facebook after the suspect streamed it. It is too graphic to be shown here as it shows the moment he kills somebody in cold blood.

Posts on Twitter of the suspect’s Facebook live messages seem to make it very clear that his actions are premeditated. He even speaks of who should carry his casket.

UPDATE: suspect is now believed to be in a grey Toyota SUV.

UPDATE: the vehicle reportedly has a red dealer tag and a rear window busted out.

Russian Draftees And Their Families To Be Paid Lump Sums Of Up To 300,000 Rubles

Published

on

russian-draftees-and-their-families-to-be-paid-lump-sums-of-up-to-300,000-rubles

Russian draftees and their families are to be paid handsome sums, in Russian terms, according to state media site Kommersant.

A report by the media company said that authorities in regions where servicemen are being drafted are offering them and their families lump sums in compensation for their being drafted. Sums of up to 300,000 rubles (€5,300) are being offered whilst monthly wages of up to six times the average wage are being offered.

The Head of the Sakhalin region Valery Ponomarenko told Kommersant: “At this difficult time, we must do everything so that the families of Sakhalin and Kuril residents called up for service do not need anything. We will provide them with the necessary assistance and support until their fathers, husbands and sons return home.”

Payments will be made to:

  • wife of a called citizen,
  • his parents, if he does not have a lawful spouse,
  • his children, if he does not have a legal spouse and parents.

Social media reports suggest that not Russians are not willing draftees, but the offer of money will help to appease loved ones in deprived areas who don’t want their partners, sons and fathers to be sent to the front.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has called for 300,000 reservists to be called up, claiming that these men are shooters, artillerymen, tankers, mechanics and drivers. Footage online suggests few have such skills and that they are in danger of being sent into active service with little or no training.

Russian draftees and their families have, however, little say in the matter and face the choice of jail or the army.

UPDATE: Iran's Army Vows To Crush The Demonstations And Deal With The Instigators

Published

update:-iran's-army-vows-to-crush-the-demonstations-and-deal-with-the-instigators

14:30 (September 24) – Iran’s army vowed on a day that pro-government demonstrations were staged following Friday’s prayers.

The pro-government rallies called for an end to the protests with some calling for the execution of those involved. As with past demonstrations against the government the army has threatened to step and in to bring the organisers to “justice.”

That could see the demonstrations and the open defiance of clerics and the morality police come to an end, but posts by locals say this time feels different with the extent of feeling far deeper than during previous riots.


12:50 (September 24) – Human Rights Watch has accused the Iranian government of detaining journalists in an effort to stop coverage of the increasing number and size of protests that are sweeping the country.

Attempts have been made by the leadership to shut down access to social media sites without success and now they are targeting journalists as they seek to hide what is happening in the country. But the news is getting out and the anger within the country is growing in scenes reminiscent of the deposal of the Shah.

Iranian regime is arresting journalists faster than ever. It’s another effort to hide the truth https://t.co/3z7ajmPcqG

12:20 (September 24) – At least 35 people have died during protests against the Iranian regime following the death of Mahsa Aminii (21) in police custody.

The report on Saturday, September 24 by AFP News Media follows three consecutive nights of protests and running battles that have seen locals pitted against Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.

Posts online show many scenes of women abandoning the restrictive headdress and clothing that they are ordered to wear by the clerical rulers in a show of absolute defiance. Ordinarily, such displays would be dealt with swiftly by the so-called morality police, but as they are the target of investigations into the young woman’s death and the ensuing protests they have all but disappeared from the streets.

Despite attempts to crack down on protestors, the number of cities, towns and villages affected has grown to almost 100. Statues of leaders are being toppled and burned in scenes reminiscent of the Arab Spring some years back, and police stations and vehicles are being targeted in increasingly violent attacks.

Courageous protestors in Iran have taken control of the city of Oshnavieh, chanting “Freedom” and “Death to the Dictator.”

Although Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi has said that the case will be investigated, this has done little to quell the riots or the level of anger towards the government and the police.

What makes this uprising different is that in a world where women are treated as second-class citizens, men are taking to the street in support of those protesting Aminii’s death. At the same time, women are throwing caution to the wind and are discarding traditional wear and openly flaunting their “newfound freedom.”

Poesia: la dona iraniana asseguda sense mocador davant els antiavalots, mentre sona “El poble unit mai serà vençut” en farsi. I els silèncis còmplices de molts que callen la vulneració de drets elementals. #IranProtests2022

That open defiance is spilling over into everyday life with women and men increasingly defying clerics and chasing them away, accusing them of having no morals.

The news that at least 35 people have died in the protest will only add fuel to the situation, which at this time shows no sign of abating. How long and how far protestors are prepared to go is the question on everyone’s lips, as it is what the international pariah government is prepared to do to hang on to power.

BREAKING: Russian General Responsible For Logistics Relieved Of His Post

Published

on

breaking:-russian-general-responsible-for-logistics-relieved-of-his-post

Russian state media Kommersant reported that Dmitry Bulgakov has been relieved of his post as Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation.

Bulgakov was in charge of logistics for the Russian defence force and was directly responsible for ensuring that equipment and supplies were sent to the frontline, when and where they needed it.

In the post since 2008, the general is the latest to be relieved of his duties suggesting that recriminations continue in the Kremlin as Putin and his inner circle work to rid themselves of those they believe are responsible for the failures in Ukraine.

The army nor the government have said what will happen to Bulgakov, with some suggestion that he is to be moved elsewhere. 

Bulgakov will be replaced by Mikhail Mizintsev who previously served as head of the National Defense Control Centre. Mizintsev handled the evacuation from Mariupol.

The removal of the Russian general responsible for logistics comes as the country experiences further losses in Ukraine, and as the police round those that have been drafted into the army as part of Putin’s call for partial mobilisation. That has resulted in many people fleeing the country whilst others look for ways to escape the draft.
