Cassandra Nickcole Damper Appeared In Court Tuesday After Being Accused Of Shooting & Seriously Injuring A Man While Playing With Gun On Facebook Live.

The woman accused of shooting and seriously injuring a man during a Facebook Live video, appeared in court Tuesday afternoon.

Cassandra Damper is currently charged with tampering with evidence after police said she tried to wipe off her hands before testing for gun powder residue.

In court today, Eyewitness News learned that Damper initially lied to police on the scene telling investigators that Holmes held the gun to his head and pulled the trigger.

The shooting happened around 2 a.m. on Easter Sunday at the Valero gas station on Almeda and Southmore.

Police say the victim, Devyn Holmes, was inside of a parked car with Damper and another man who were playing with two guns on Facebook Live.

Female YouTube Shooter Identified As Nasim Najafi Aghdam.

Terrified employees fled as gunfire rang out at YouTube’s sprawling headquarters in San Bruno, California, on Tuesday, prompting a massive police response and evacuation as victims were transported to nearby hospitals. San Bruno police identified the suspect late Tuesday as Nasim Najafi Aghdam, 39, who was found dead from what authorities believe is a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini said three people were transported to local hospitals with gunshot wounds.

His department said it is working to identify a motive for the shooting. Earlier reports indicated the suspect may have known one of the victims, but police said late Tuesday that “at this time there is no evidence that the shooter knew the victims of this shooting or that individuals were specifically targeted.”

Barberini said police arrived on scene at 12:48 p.m. local time and encountered frantic employees fleeing the building. “It was very chaotic as you can imagine,” he said.

Responding officers encountered one victim with a gunshot wound toward the front of the building before finding the deceased suspect, Barberini said. Several minutes later, police located two additional victims at an adjacent building.

Barberini later said the suspect used a handgun and there was no further threat to the community.

San Bruno police investigate motive

Police said they are investigating the motive for the shooting, but Aghdam’s videos and website are filled with criticism of YouTube. Sources said she initially asked for one of the male victims by name, and that she used 9mm handgun during the shooting.

Jaclyn Schildkraut, an expert on mass shootings research and assistant professor at the State University of New York (SUNY), told CBS News it was “very uncommon” to see a female suspect carry out this type of shooting.

Women made up of only four percent of mass shooting suspects in the U.S. between 1966 and 2016, Schildkraut said. However, Tuesday’s shooting might not fit the definition of a mass shooting. The Gun Violence Archive defines it as four or more people shot or killed —  excluding the shooter.

BHRE Hip Hop Pick Of The Day: Curren$y- “Hoe Train”

BHRE Monday’s Lyrics of the Day: No More Parties In LA (Kanye West ft Kendrick Lamar)

Hey baby you forgot your Ray Bans
And my sheets still orange from your spray tan
It was more than soft porn for the K-man
She remember my Sprinter, said “I was in the grape van”
Uhm, well cutie, I like your bougie booty
Come Erykah Badu me, well, let’s make a movie
Hell, you know my repertoire is like a wrestler
I show you the ropes, connect the dots
A country girl that love Hollywood
Mama used to cook red beans and rice
Now it’s Denny’s, 4 in the morning, spoil your appetite
Liquor pouring and niggas swarming your section with erection
Smoke in every direction, middle finger pedestrians
R&B singers and lesbians, rappers and managers
Music and iPhone cameras
This shit unanimous for you, it’s damaging for you, one thing
That pussy should only be holding exclusive rights to me, I mean
He flew you in this motherfucker on first class
Even went out his way so you could check in an extra bag
Now you wanna divide the yam like it equate the math?
That shit don’t add up, you’re making them mad as fuck
She said she came out here to find an A-list rapper
I said baby, spin that round and say the alphabet backwards
You’re dealing with malpractice, don’t kill a good nigga’s confidence
Just cause he a nerd and you don’t know what a condom is
The head still good though, the head still good though
Ladies say “Nam Myoho Renge Kyo”
Make a nigga say big words and act lyrical
Make me get spiritual
Make me believe in miracles, Buddhist monks and Cap’n Crunch cereal
Lord have mercy, thou will not hurt me
Five buddies all herded up on a Thursday
Bottle service, head service, I came in first place
The opportunity, the proper top of breast and booty cheek
The pop community, I mean these bitches come with union fee
And I want two of these, moving units through consumer streets
Then my shoe released, she was kicking in gratuity
And yeah G, I was all for it
She said K Lamar, you kind of dumb to be a poet
I’mma put you on game for the lames that don’t know they’re a rookie
Instagram is the best way to promote some pussy….

“Playaness Depends on Vigilance”

Most people don’t realize that both help and harm come from within ourselves. Instead they look to externals, mesmerized by appearances.

People of Playa nature (Wise people), on the other hand, realize that we are the source of everything good or bad for us. #HippieMovement They therefore don’t resort to blaming and accusing others. They aren’t driven to convince people they are worthy or special or distinguished.

If  a Playa experience challenges, they look to themselves; if they are commended by others, they quietly smile to themselves, unmoved; if they are slander, they don’t feel the need to defend their name.

But they go about their actions with vigilance, assuming that all is well, yet not perfectly secure. They harmonize their desires with life as it is, and seek to avoid only the things that would prevent their ability to exercise their will properly. They exercise moderation in all their affairs. And if they seem ignorant or unsophisticated, it is of no concern to them. They know that they only have to watch out for themselves and the direction of their own desires.

See Things for What They Are

Circumstances do not rise to meet our expectations. Events happen as they do. People behave as they are. Embrace what you actually get.

Open your eyes: See things for what they really are, thereby sparing yourself the pain of false attachments and avoidable devastation.

Think about what delights you- the tools on which you depend, the people whom you cherish. But remember that they have their own distinct character, which is quite a separate matter from how we happen to regard them.

As an exercise, consider the smallest things to which you are attached. For instance, suppose you have a favorite cup. It is, after all, merely a cup; so if it should break, you could cope. Next build up to things- or people- toward which your clinging feelings and thoughts intensify.

Remember, for example, when you embrace your child, your husband, your wife, you are embracing a mortal. For example, if one of them should die, you could bear it with tranquility.

When something happens, the only thing in your power is your attitude toward it; you can either accept it or resent it.

What really frightens and dismays us is not external events themselves, but the way in which we think about them. It is not things that disturb us, but our interpretation of their significance.

Stop scaring yourself with impetuous notions, with your reactive impressions of the way things are!

Things people are not what we wish them to be nor what they seem to be. They are what they are.

Hippie Words Wednesday 3/16/16

“Clear Thinking Is Vital”

The life of wisdom is a life of reason. It is important to learn how to think clearly. Clear thinking is not haphazard enterprise. it requires proper training. It is through clear thinking that we are able to properly direct our will, stick with our true purpose, and discover the connections we have to others and the duties that follow from those relationships. Every person should learn how to identify mushy and fallacious thinking. Study how inferences are legitimately derived, so that you avoid drawing unfounded conclusions.

For instance, note the following examples of faulty logic: “I am richer than you; therefore, I am better than you.” You will encounter such absurd assertions as this all the time, but they are completely fallacious. The valid inference that can be drawn is this: “I am richer than you; therefore I have more possessions or money than you do.”

Another example: “I speak more persuasively than you; therefore, I am better than you.” From this w can only conclude, “I speak more persuasively than you; Therefore my speech carries more effect than yours.”

But remember: Your character is independent of property or persuasive speech.

Take the time to assiduously study clear thinking and you won’t be hoodwinked. Strong education in logic and the rules of effective argument will serve you well.

The Beneifits of Marijuana, Economically

What are the economic impacts of legalization?

 IMG_3711[1]

 

In the United States, Colorado is currently the best example of marijuana legalization. The state government there has seen substantial increases in tax collections due in large part to excise taxes on marijuana. We also have to consider that the change in law has drawn in some people from out of state, who in turn spend money on marijuana, along with a good midnight snack.

Joking aside, it is hard to say how much of this is because marijuana isn’t legal in most other states. It is also hard to say how much the newness factor comes into play.

One of the arguments against legalization is that the usage will spike up. Initially, this is likely to be true. Studies done on this subject show that usage does spike up when marijuana becomes legal where it previously was not. People are curious beings by nature. There will be some people who want to try it just to see what all of the fuss is about.

The same studies also show that the usage tends to go back down after the initial spike. The newness becomes old. People satisfy their curiosity and they go on living their life as before. It usually is about the same percentage of people who smoke marijuana on a regular basis as before when it was illegal.

The point is that all of the new money coming into the Colorado state government may not last. It also won’t help as other states legalize.

Politicians in state legislatures around the country are seeing the increased tax collections in Colorado. They are licking their chops for more money and many of them will end up going along with legalization just for that.

The increased taxes going to state governments can be an argument for or against legalization. Many proponents of legalization use it as an argument. Personally, I don’t really want government at any level to have more money to spend because they already take enough. If there are cuts in taxes in other areas, then this would be beneficial.

It will be interesting to see the trend in Colorado. Will the extra money be used to ramp up government spending or to cut taxes in other areas? My guess is that it will be a combination of the two.

In terms of taxation and use of resources, we must also consider that legalization means that fewer resources will be required to put people in front of courts and to hold people in prison. When you don’t arrest sellers and users of marijuana, then it means that government spending can be reduced or resources diverted to something else — hopefully something that involves actual criminals.

Many areas already have severe overcrowding in jails and backed up cases in court. Legalizing marijuana will only help this situation.

Hemp and Other Uses

When we talk about the economics of legalization, we really need to focus on everything. Marijuana use itself is not the only result of legalizing cannabis.

Hemp is a product derived from the same plant species as marijuana. In the United States, hemp production is essentially illegal under federal law, even though hemp itself contains little THC, which is the chemical in marijuana that gets people high. This just shows the ridiculousness of the laws. This is cronyism and has nothing to do with protecting people from themselves. It limits our economic freedom.

When you consider all of the products that we are being deprived of, it is easy to understand the economic benefits of legal cannabis, particularly with hemp. This is also one of those things where it is very difficult to measure. Looking at GDP statistics aren’t going to help us.

Just take smartphones as a simple example. When someone buys a smartphone, it will get reflected in GDP statistics. But this is mostly meaningless because it is not telling us how much happiness people are deriving from the product.

If smartphones didn’t exist, we don’t know what people would have used that extra money for. But smartphones do exist now and the majority of people decide it is worth their money to have one. For this reason, we are generally much better off for having this product available.

The same would go for hemp and all of its uses. Think of all of the choices in clothes, paper products, biofuels, rope, and so many other products that we may be missing out on. We don’t really know all that is possible until it is fully legalized and the marketplace figures it out.

As with any product, when you lift restrictions and allow free people to have more choices, then this improves living standards. And when it comes to economics, free choice and living standards are really what matter the most. It isn’t some GDP statistic that makes you happy.

Medical Marijuana

Even medical marijuana has a major economic impact. Just as with the use of hemp, more choice and freedom means a higher quality of life. This is actually an economic benefit.

Of course, if medical marijuana helps someone live longer or have a higher quality of life by feeling better, how can you get a bigger economic impact that this?

The other major factor we have to consider with medical marijuana is its impact on traditional medicine. What if more people try marijuana for medicinal uses for diseases such as cancer? What if people find success in using marijuana as a replacement for expensive drugs?

Some medical providers and pharmaceutical companies may not like this very much. In fact, they might find it in their own interest to argue against medical marijuana.

Now it is true that some in the medical industry could be hurt by success stories in the use of medical marijuana. But we have to make sure that we use good economics in our analysis.

The overall economic impact is positive if people find marijuana as being cheaper and more effective than traditional drugs. It may hurt the bottom line of some major drug companies, but it will help the bottom line of many individuals struggling with health issues.

Again, if people are making a voluntary choice to use a product, it is because they deem themselves better off. They are willing to trade their money for the product.

Your Economic Impact

The main beneficiaries of cannabis legalization are consumers. More choice is always beneficial.

This isn’t to say there won’t be other beneficiaries too. Those opening up marijuana shops will likely benefit. Some farmers would benefit if widespread growing were allowed.

Even if you have no interest in growing cannabis, or selling marijuana, or using marijuana, or even using hemp products, you still may find a benefit in seeking investments in the industry.

Regardless, we should cheer whenever our fellow human beings have more choices in life. When people have a better standard of living and better quality of life, it benefits us all. It is hard to measure this with statistics. It is all about what we have available to us.

There are positive and negative economic impacts from cannabis legalization. But there is little doubt that the positives far outweigh any negatives.

Cannabis should be legalized not just for pure liberty reasons, but also for more economic freedom.
