Armed Robber Shot by Concealed Carry Permit Holder After Robber Threatened to Kill Friend
Detroit, MI- An armed thug thought he had the upper hand during an attempted robbery outside a Detroit liquor store. Instead, the alleged robber was shot in the chest by a legally armed citizen.
According to a criminal complaint filed March 10, the shooting happened at 9:53 p.m. Feb. 8 in the parking lot of Carmen’s Delicatessen.
As they responded to hail of gunfire, police said they spotted a victim with his hands raised over his head who told them he had a concealed gun license.
The man explained to police that he and his friend went to the store and noticed an old man and a younger man talking outside. The younger man was wearing a blue Detroit Lions jacket and a ski mask.
The young man was later identified as Joshua Fordham.
According to Click on Detroit, when the concealed carry holder and his friend entered the store, Fordham and the older man followed them in.
Fordham continued to stalk them after leaving the store.
Police said Fordham next threatened to kill the CPL holder’s friend if the CPL holder didn’t hand over his belongings.
The CPL holder proceeded to give Fordham his wallet.
Fordham then started to pat down the CPL holder. As this happened, the CPL holder pulled out his pistol and shot Fordham in the chest.
Police said they found Fordham on the ground as they arrived. The cops also noted that Fordham’s firearm appeared to have malfunctioned during the incident.
Fordham had no business living life as free man to begin with. As reported by Fox News on Friday, Fordham pleaded guilty in March 2014 to armed robbery and was sentenced to 5 to 15 years in prison. He also had other convictions for armed robbery and firearms violations.
Fordham is not permitted to own a gun and has been charged with felon in possession of a firearm.
Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear Vetoes Bill to Ban Minors From Sex Change Surgeries and Hormones
Kentucky’s Democrat Governor Andy Beshear has vetoed a bill banning minors from receiving sex change surgeries and hormones.
Doctors who have already prescribed children puberty blockers or hormones will have to cease doing so or taper them off if stopping abruptly could harm them.
The legislation, SB 150, bans discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity in schools, requires students to use bathrooms intended for their biological sex, and dictates that educators must notify students’ parents when and if they receive any mental health services related to sexuality.
Fortunately, the bill had passed the state’s Republican-led House with a veto-proof majority, so the governor will likely be overridden next week.
“In Kentucky, the expanded version that reached Beshear’s desk was rushed through both legislative chambers in a matter of hours March 16 before lawmakers began an extended break. The fast-track work enabled lawmakers to retain their ability to override the governor’s veto. The action triggered outrage among opponents unable to stop the legislation,” CBS News reports.
In his statement about the veto, Beshear said that the legislation allows “too much government interference in personal healthcare issues and rips away the freedom of parents to make medical decisions for their children.”
The governor also claimed that not sterilizing or mutilating physically healthy minors could cause an uptick in suicide.
“My faith teaches me that all children are children of God and Senate Bill 150 will endanger the children of Kentucky,” Beshear said.
“Andy Beshear thinks it’s okay for children to have access to life-altering sex change surgery and drugs before they turn 18,” said Sean Southard, a spokesman for the Kentucky Republican Party, according to a report from ABC News. “Today, he revealed how radical he truly is.”
The American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky has already threatened a lawsuit when the bill becomes law.
“Governor Beshear has demonstrated his commitments to protect Kentucky parents’ rights to raise their children as they see fit, and to keep medical decisions where they belong: between providers and patients,” wrote the ACLU Kentucky in a statement. “The adults in the General Assembly should focus on what students, teachers, and schools really need, rather than single out vulnerable children to score cheap political points. ”
Dopey Radical Cori Bush Says She Won’t ‘Succumb to the Nihilist, Insurrectionist View of the Second Amendment’ (VIDEO)
Noted Constitutional scholar, Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri, recently offered some remarks on the Second Amendment that were not only insulting but appeared completely scripted.
It’s amazing to hear a member of Congress speak this way about an amendment to the Constitution that she is sworn to uphold and protect.
Cori also spends hundreds of thousands a year on her own armed security — who happens to be her husband!
Then again, Cori is a member of the squad.
WATCH: Cori Bush Wants Us to Know She Won’t ‘Succumb to the Nihilist, Insurrectionist View of the 2nd Amendment,’ America
Oh, please. I’ll bet you a dollar that Missouri Democrat Rep. Cori Bush could no more define “nihilist,” let alone spell it, than she could teach a pigeon to spell “gun grabber.” Nonetheless, the “noted Constitutional scholar” [ahem] wants us to know where we can stick the Second Amendment, and it’s not in her inbox.
Although, it was delightful how Bush’s handlers included “insurrectionist” in her prattling little diatribe…
First, there’s no such thing as an “assault rifle,” so since they don’t exist, you can’t ban them, Congresswoman. Second, of course your threat requires taking away the rights of people to bear arms — the arms that Democrats don’t want law-abiding Americans to own, or even more ominous, the arms that Democrats don’t think Americans need — which is none of their damn business.
Okay, back to the babble — and my favorite part.
We will not succumb to the nihilist, insurrectionist view of the Second Amendment. We will not allow the apologists for gun violence to win. We will double down on a public health response to the public health emergency that is gun violence in our country. And together, we will end this crisis once and for all.
Here’s the video:

Do you think Cori Bush is aware that Harriet Tubman carried a gun?
Panera Bread to Introduce Palm Scanners Next Month that Will Store its Customers’ Biometric Data for its Loyalty Program and Cashless Payment
Panera Bread is implementing palm scanners, which the company claims will make it ‘easier’ for customers by linking their fingerprints to their loyalty accounts and allowing them to use their palms as a form of contactless payment.
Panera is using Amazon’s palm-scanning or cashier-less checkout technology which is being used in more than 200 establishments in and outside the company.
“Today, Panera Bread announced its planned rollout of Amazon One as a loyalty identification for MyPanera, its industry-leading loyalty program with 52+ million members, and a contactless payment method,” the company announced Wednesday.
“The technology is deployed at select bakery-cafes in Panera’s hometown of St. Louis with plans to expand to additional locations in the coming months. Panera is the first national restaurant company to use Amazon One as both a way for guests to pay and access their loyalty account with their palm,” it added.
In addition to allowing workers to welcome customers by name and inform them of available rewards, the gadgets will also help suggest menu items based on customers’ purchase histories, the company claims.
The company also claimed that customers’ biometric data is “securely stored and protected by multiple security controls, and palm images are never stored on the Amazon One device.”
Niren Chaudhary, CEO of Panera Bread, referred to the change as a “frictionless, personalized, and convenient” upgrade to the company’s loyalty program.
Panera is the first national restaurant to use Amazon One for its loyalty identification and payment.
Read the press release:
Amazon One will bring an even more personalized touch to the Panera dining experience. Guests who link their MyPanera account to Amazon One will enjoy the convenience of fast payments, as well as tailored meal recommendations from Panera associates based on their preferences and previous orders. After a simple scan of the palm, Panera associates will be able to greet guests by name, communicate their available rewards, reorder their favorite menu items, or take another order of their choice, extending the guest experience into a true and meaningful relationship. When they are done ordering, guests can simply scan their palm again to pay.
First-time Amazon One users can pre-enroll online or sign up when placing their Panera order in the bakery-cafe. It takes a minute for a Panera guest to link their credit card and MyPanera account to their Amazon One ID. If a Panera guest has previously enrolled in Amazon One at Amazon Go, Amazon Fresh, Whole Foods Market or other locations such as airports and stadiums, they will not need to re-enroll at Panera – they simply link their MyPanera account to their Amazon One ID online or in store. Enrollment in Amazon One is voluntary and includes opt-in consent, and guests can choose to use Amazon One for loyalty linking, payment or both.
“Collaborating with Amazon Web Services to bring this service into our bakery-cafes is a natural extension of the tech-forward, guest-centric digital thinking that Panera is known for,” said Niren Chaudhary, CEO of Panera Bread and Panera Brands. “Our philosophy has been centered around leveraging best-in-class technology to create a better Panera experience and using that to deepen our relationship with our loyal guests. Introducing Amazon One, as a frictionless, personalized, and convenient service, is another way we’re redefining the loyalty experience.”
“With one of the largest and most successful loyalty programs in the country, Panera wanted to make it even easier for its guests to access their rewards and have a more customized café experience,” said Dilip Kumar, Vice President, AWS Applications. “We’re proud to collaborate with Panera on the rollout of Amazon One and elevate the guest experience by providing a simple, fast, and effortless way to complete their order so they can spend more time enjoying their meal.”
As a leader in digital in the restaurant industry, Panera Bread is committed to providing innovative tech-driven solutions for its guests. Guest participation is opt-in only and Panera does not store personal palm data.
Any private and personal data shared via Amazon One is securely stored and protected by multiple security controls, and palm images are never stored on the Amazon One device. All images are encrypted and sent to a highly secure area custom-built for Amazon One in the cloud where palm signatures are created. Amazon One is an optional service. For more information, visit Amazon One’s website.
Concerns have been raised that government agencies or hackers may tap into data.
“Federal agencies like Customs and Border Protection have experienced devastating hacks where large databases of biometric information have been stolen,” Fight for the Future told CBS MoneyWatch in an email. “Do we really expect Amazon, or Panera, to have better cybersecurity practices?”
