Eurabian War

1,295 cars torched in Paris last night, bringing the total over three days to around 2,600 and for the 10 days somewhere over 3,000. At some point, the French army is going to be mobilized, and if they don't surrender immediately, they're are going to kill dozens or hundreds of rioters. This would not be a bad thing.

We only hope that the UN and the rest of Europe condemns French "over-reaction" as they much as they seem to when the United States is presumed to be in the wrong. Then maybe the rest of the world will realize that civil society is engaged in a global war for it's very survival, but we doubt they will. The world in general (and democrats in particular) would rather commit a slow suicide than admit that Bush saw this coming long before they did.

Great post, SCC.

You are right and I hope that Americans are finally realizing that the spongy, leftist drivel that has been driving our foreign policy over the last 30 years (mostly Carter/Clinton ineptness) is not working - Bush did see this coming and is putting boots on the ground to squelch it. I hate W's border/immigration policy and his ramped up social spending ... But overseas he's doing it right.

Let's hope more newsanchors go the way of Peter Jennings and more Democrats go the way of Zell Miller....ah-ite!

I wonder when France finally snaps and starts slaughtering their muslims, will the UN permit Yougoslavia to bomb Paris to stop the humanitarian disaster??

What is France doing? Negotiating?? With who?

Do we really believe that the offenders are merely poor, disadvantaged youths who just don't have enough activities to do?

Is there any way for the French to scam money for oil out of all this and then blame the U.S.?

And I quote "We Were Soldiers"

What is happening in France has little to do with politics in the United States. Not every issue or event has a left or right slant. Are there similarities to the Paris suburbs and our ghettos? Yes, but there are also big differences. France is a sad state because they are arrogant and hypocritical. They have no soul. This country both right and left want the underclass to assimialte.

Speaking of the west side...can someone please explain why 011 has been getting midnight cars from other districts...the other night I noticed 011 got a car from 019, 017, 023, 016(? I think). When you "usm g/011" what was going on, 011 had 2 downed cars! please tell me that those cars were being used in some other capacity, or has the city reached a completely new level in screwing with manpower levels. if only the tax payers knew.......

A tornado with winds exceeding 158 mph tore a path of devastation through western Kentucky and southern Indiana as residents slept early Sunday, reducing dozens of mobile homes to splinters and turning entire blocks of buildings into piles of rubble. At least 22 people were killed and 200 others injured.

Rescuers who arrived at the hard-hit Eastbrooke Mobile Home Park shortly after the tornado struck reported seeing children wandering in the debris, looking for their parents, and parents searching for missing children. Children's bicycles and other toys were strewn amid mattresses, chairs and insulation.

The tornado, the deadliest to hit the state since 1974, hit a horse racing track near Henderson, Ky., then crossed into Indiana around 2 a.m.

"It was just a real loud roar. It didn't seem like it lasted over 45 seconds to a minute, then it was calm again," said Steve Gaiser, who lives near the Eastbrook Mobile Home Park in Evansville.

At least 17 people were killed in the mobile home park, according to Eric Williams of the Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Department.

More people were believed to still be trapped in the debris, and National Guard units were called in to help with search-and-recovery efforts.

"They were in trailer homes, homes that were just torn apart by the storm, so they're just now getting in there trying to find people," Deputy Vanderburgh County Coroner Annie Groves said. "It's just terrible."

Five other people were confirmed dead in neighboring Warrick County, east of Evansville, where the Ohio River city of Newburgh was hit. No deaths were reported in Kentucky.

Indiana homeland security spokeswoman Pam Bright said about 100 of the 350 or so homes at the Evansville mobile home park were destroyed and 125 others there were damaged.

Larry and Christie Brown rode out the storm inside one mobile home.

"Man, it was more than words can say," Larry Brown said. "We opened the door and there wasn't anything sitting there."

Chad Bennett, assistant fire chief in Newburgh, told CNN that sirens sounded, but most people did not hear them because it happened in the middle of the night.

The tornado developed in a line of thunderstorms that rolled rapidly eastward across the Ohio Valley.

Ryan Presley, a weather service meteorologist in Paducah, Ky., said a single tornado touched down near Smith Mills in western Kentucky, jumped the river and cut a 15- to 20-mile swath through Indiana's Vanderburgh and Warrick counties.

The tornado appeared to be at least an F3 on the Fujita scale, which ranges from F0, the weakest, to F5, the strongest. An F3 has winds ranging from 158 mph to 206 mph, and the tornado that hit on Sunday may have been even stronger, Presley said.

Warrick County Sheriff Marvin Heilman said the victims included a woman who was eight months' pregnant, her husband and a young child in the rural town of Degonia Springs. A teenage girl was also killed near Boonville, and her father was critically injured, he said.

Tim Martin, 42, was at his parents' mobile home when they heard the wind, and then the tornado picked up the home and shoved it into the neighbor's yard.

He and his parents escaped unharmed, but they heard several neighbors calling for help. A nearby mobile home was overturned, and another appeared to have been obliterated.

"All I could see was debris," he said. "I thought it was a bad dream."

Patty Ellerbusch, 53, said she and her husband were in bed at their hilltop home in Newburgh when a relative called and warned them of the tornado. They heard a low roar and ran for the basement.

She made it downstairs, but her husband did not. He was blasted with shattered drywall, wood and other debris as the tornado shredded the home's roof.

"He was running down the hallway, and it knocked him down and ripped his glasses off. He said it felt like being in a wind tunnel," she said. The storm stripped the roof off the couple's home and destroyed their barn.

Bright said it was the deadliest tornado in Indiana since April 3, 1974, when an outbreak of several tornadoes killed 47 people and destroyed 2,069 homes.

Tornadoes can occur anytime of year, but peak tornado season in the United States lasts from March through the summer months, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The Ellis Park racetrack, between Evansville and Henderson, Ky., had significant damage to barns, the grandstand and other buildings, and some workers were injured, said Paul Kuerzi, the track's vice president and general manager.

Kuerzi said three horses died from injuries suffered in storm. He said it was too early to know if any other horses were injured. About 150 horses in training were stabled there.

Elsewhere, a different tornado barreled through downtown Munfordville, Ky., before dawn Sunday, causing significant damage to more than 40 homes and businesses.

Mike Roeder, a spokesman for utility company Vectren, said 25,000 homes were without power Sunday. There also were reports of natural gas leaks.

011's midnight crew 5 to 10 years ago was the most shamefully short of any district. I worked em all as a dispatcher, and it was. The workers were good/great, but there just weren't enough of em for the chaos out there.

006 on 3rd watch wsa the next most consistently short of marked cars.

An article on the gas station homicide the other day said that there were 5 homicides on the beat this year (I think it would be a 30 sector beat), compared to 1 homicide last year.

011 is the low hanging fruit in terms of cutting homicides. Its been for 30 or 40 years (as I believe ret. Sgt Northern and others here can attest).

I'm not saying its right for the other districts that are losing manpower. But if you want to cut a few dozen homicides off of your yearly total, 011 is the most obvious place to start. Particularly on on 1st watch warm weekends.

Nah, not them or LL or LD. More like a visitor, not a regular.

To paraphrase lyrics for a hint to anyone who cares:

I'll wear my badge... a vinyl sticker with big block letters adherent to my chest
That tells my old friends I was a visitor there...
I was not permanent

Hope they are all doing well. God knows they cared about those on the street, and I hope whoever is there now cares just as much.

S.C.C.

As I review the various strings, I recognize that there are many bloggers eager to talk about the 009th District. Rather than see 009 related posts pop up in multiple strings, how about giving them their own.

In fact, there are probably bloggers from many districts (or even units) that would like to discuss their own issues and peculiarities. How about a "Unit of the Week" string devoted to a different district/unit each week. It may help contributors stay on topic.

... just a suggestion.

10 days and the military hasn't mobilized? Heck, if this happened in Chicago and we sat on our hands, the citizens would be bustin' caps in these heathen's asses! Who could blame them.

That just goes to show you what happens when you live in a liberal, milktoast country.

I consider Chicago to be a liberal, milktoast country. Do you think the current Daley has the balls to squelch something like this before it gets out of hand?

No, he does not.

011 is very short of manpower, midnights especially. it is not unusual to have 3 or 4 beat cars down on any given night. there have been units from other districts in 011, but i thought they were gang teams. from time to time, gang teams from slower districts come into 010, 011, etc, to conduct a mission, or maybe to learn.
