Clara Vondrich chased down this underage alleged thief who she said stole her cellphone. She put him in this bearhug until NYPD officers showed up.Photo: Stefan Jeremiah
Woman chases down, bearhugs alleged phone thiefA dramatic photo captured the moment on Friday when a Brooklyn mugging victim became a crime fighter — as she busted the punk who allegedly snatched her cellphone and held him in a bear hug for the cops. Clara Vondrich, 36, was taking a business phone call while standing in front of a Williamsburg coffee shop on South Third Street at 1:20 p.m. when the teen approached her with two pals. The 13-year-old, whose name is being withheld by The Post because he is a minor, allegedly pushed her from behind, nearly knocking her to the ground.
He ripped the phone from her hand and fled, said Vondrich and police sources.

“I was all disoriented,” Vondrich told The Post. “My headphones almost came off.
“I looked up and I saw him running with my phone.”
Wearing a pair of thick wedges and a sundress, Vondrich chased after him.
Hot on the kid’s heels, she pleaded with him to give the cellphone back.
“I was screaming the whole time, ‘Get that kid!’ ” Vondrich recalled. “I finally said, ‘Yo, I’ll give you $200 for that. Just stop.’ ”
Vondrich said the teen appeared to be out of shape and handed off the phone to his more nimble pal, who ran off.
But she kept after the slow boy, who was huffing and puffing down Wythe Avenue during the five-block chase.
The Wonder Woman grabbed hold of the teen at South Sixth Street and Wythe Avenue, wrapping her arms around his chest and pinning him against a car.
“He was so pudgy and was slowing down, so that’s why I caught up to him,” Vondrich said, adding she felt sorry for the kid.Read the rest here: http://nypost.com/2014/08/16/woman-bearhugs-alleged-phone-thief-after-five-block-chase/

Woman chases down, bearhugs alleged phone thief

A fellow professor, writing to the judge for leniency on Professor Miller-Young:

“If she appears smiling on camera,” Prof. Boris continues, “she is ‘wearing the mask,’ that is, she is hiding her actual state through a strategy of self-presentation that is a cultural legacy of slavery.”

Gee, I didn’t know she was that old … I mean seriously, did slavery in the 1800’s caused her to assault and batter a teenage girl waving an anti-abortion sign on a university campus?

No she assaulted her and her position from her own pool of prejudice and intolerance.  It’s about character, not slavery.

Arab press blasts Islamic State militants for tarnishing Muslims worldwide

A growing chorus of top Muslim leaders and Arab pundits around the world are strongly condemning the “cancerous” actions of extremist Islamic State militants, saying the ruthless group’s horrific campaign of murder in Iraq does serious harm to all Islam.

In the past, Muslim leaders have faced criticism from inside and outside the religion for being slow to condemn terrorism in the name of Islam. An editorial in the London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi last month called on moderate Muslims to denounce the actions of the group formerly known as ISIS, which has killed thousands and left an estimated 1.5 million people displaced in northern Iraq.

“All we have to do to understand the high price that Muslims pay on all levels [for such actions] is to see how Westerners snatch up [such reports on] ISIS’s conquests, invasions and despicable actions, and share them on social media in order to tarnish the image of Islam,” the July 24 editorial read. “We haven’t heard one single voice in the camp of moderate Islam condemning taking women prisoner or expropriating peaceful citizens’ property and money for ISI in Mosul, or any who distanced themselves from the shocking fatwas that seem to be carefully formulated for [maximum] service to the enemy.”

The actions of the extreme militants threatens “not only Christians or Iraq,” but serves as a warning about the potential elimination of the region’s ethnic and religious minorities, the editorial continued.

“Therefore, an Arab position that attempts to downplay the dangers of the cancerous spread of terrorist organizations in the region … in order to serve the political agendas will actually be an accessory to the crimes against humanity, and will morally legitimize criminals who have lost any vestige of their humanity,” it read.

I remember at Pearl City High School a friend had this as his first car (in bad shape of course) in 1974.  If I remember correctly, it had on the dashboard push buttons to operate the transmission.  We would go to a liquor store in Pearl City, but some Boone’s Farm Strawberry Glen wine, roll some doobies and take  Kam Hwy to Wahiawa to watch movies at the 25 cent theater.  We didn’t always make as we would get pretty smashed on the way there.

Veteran kicked out of Six Flags for wearing pro-Second Amendment shirt.Mario Alejandro of Woodbridge, New Jersey was trying to enjoy a Saturday afternoon at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey when he was told he needed to leave the park because his shirt was going to offend people. Alejandro was wearing a tank top that depicted a red, white and blue firearm with the words “Keep Calm and Return Fire” emblazoned on the front.
The shirt was one of several Alejandro’s family had given him for Father’s Day, printed and sold by a charity that helps benefit soldiers and their families. Alejandro, who fought in Iraq in 2003 as a member of the United States Marines was shocked that anyone would have a problem with his shirt.
“I was walking in through the gate with my wife and kids, who were in front of me, when a security guard grabbed me and said: ‘I can’t let you into the park with that shirt on. That shirt’s offensive.’…I said that it’s not offensive, it’s a military shirt. I told him that I am an Iraq veteran… I served in the war. But he said: ‘I don’t care, you have to take that off… or you need to buy another shirt to put over it,’” Alejandro told NJ.com.
