Alleged Texas High School Shooter Released From Jail

Timothy Simpkins

The Texas student who allegedly opened fire at his high school, injuring four people, was released from jail on Thursday.

“The suspect, 18-year-old Timothy Simpkins, was later taken into custody on three counts of aggravated assault with a gun,” WFAA reported. “Simpkins was released on bond from Tarrant County Jail on Thursday morning, which was set at $75,000. The bond included several conditions: drug and alcohol testing, GPS monitoring and 24-hour home confinement, according to orders from Tarrant County Magistrate Judge Brooke Panuthos.”

The shooting began after Simpkins allegedly was in a fight with another student that escalated to Simpkins drawing a gun on Wednesday.

“The fight was broken up and the two students calmed down, but then Simpkins pulled out a firearm from his orange backpack and fired several shots that struck three people, according to an arrest warrant Thursday,” the New York Post reported. “Calvin Pettitt, a 25-year-old English teacher who jumped in to break up the fight, was shot in the back, suffering broken ribs and a collapsed lung, according to police and his family.”

Police said that a 15-year-old boy was in critical condition, and a teenage girl was grazed by a bullet and has been discharged from the hospital. The fourth victim was a pregnant woman who was injured in a fall during the shooting and received medical care on scene.

      Sounds like a serious need for home schooling.

      My kids would be at home doing their lessons.

      How many more need to be shot before this kid is kept in custody?

      Would the Judge hand down the same order if his children were shot?

      F**k that Judge.

    It’s outrageous that they let him out! Whether there was bullying or not will be sorted out later. The answer should NEVER be to bring a loaded firearm to school and shoot people. This is ridiculous. The bail should have been much higher.
    No students with loaded firearms in school, ever!!

Got Lunch? Navy Nuclear Engineer Attempted to Hide Classified Docs in Peanut Butter Sandwich

Published

submarine

One of the Navy’s nuclear engineers “with access to military secrets has been charged with trying to pass information about the design of American nuclear-powered submarines to someone he thought was a representative of a foreign government who turned out to be an undercover FBI agent, the Justice Department said Sunday” reports the Associated Press.

A criminal complaint has been filed against Jonathan Toebbe, 42, who was arrested with his wife, Diana, 45, in West Virginia. The Justice Department says Toebbe placed a removable memory card at a prearranged “dead drop”.

“The FBI recovered a blue memory card wrapped in plastic and placed between two slices of bread on a half of a peanut butter sandwich, court documents say. The records on the memory card included design elements and performance characteristics of Virginia-class submarine reactors” reports the AP.

Toebbe faces espionage-related charges for trying to sell government secrets to a contact he believed represented a foreign power for almost an entire year. The Navy declined to comment Sunday, and “the FBI says the scheme began in April 2020 when Jonathan Toebbe sent a package of Navy documents to a foreign government and wrote that he was interested in selling to that country operations manuals, performance reports and other sensitive information.”

Authorities say the FBI used Toebbe’s outreach to begin the almost yearlong operation. An undercover agent emailed with Toebbe for weeks and eventually sent him about $10,000 in cryptocurrency as a sign of good faith and trust.

Toebbe’s package had a return address in Pittsburgh and “Was obtained by the FBI last December through its legal attaché office in the unspecified foreign country” reports the AP. “The court documents don’ explain how the FBI came to receive the package or from whom.”

The package also included a letter that said, “I apologize for this poor translation into your language. Please forward this letter to your military intelligence agency. I believe this information will be of great value to your nation. This is not a hoax.”

Only weeks later, agents watched Toebbe make the drop at an agreed-upon location in West Virginia, “with Diana Toebbe appearing to serve as a lookout for her husband during a dead-drop operation for which the FBI paid $20,000.”

The Associated Press reports:

The Justice Department describes those submarines as “cruise missile fast-attack submarines, which incorporate the latest in stealth, intelligence gathering, and weapons systems technology.” The memory card also included a typed message that said, in part: “I hope your experts are very happy with the sample provided and I understand the importance of a small exchange to grow our trust.”

The FBI conducted similar dead-drop exchanges over the next several months, including one in August in eastern Virginia for which Toebbe was paid roughly $70,000. In that instance, prosecutors say, he concealed in a chewing gum package a memory card that contained schematic designs for the Virginia-class submarine.

CA Signs Law Requiring Large Retailers to Have Gender-Neutral Toy and Child-Care Sections

The new law applies to any CA retail store with more than 500 employees

Toy Store

California’s Governor Gavin Newsom has just signed a “final batch of legislative actions weighed for the year.” Among them is a new law that will take effect in 2024, mandating all retail stores with 500 or more employees must have a gender-neutral toy and child-care product section.

California became the first state to adopt such a law. The Los Angeles Times reports the stores “must sell some toys and child-care products outside of areas specifically labeled by gender. Retailers can continue to offer other toys and child-care goods in traditional boys and girls sections if they choose to.”

Assemblyman Evan Low, a Democrat from Campbell, introduced the legislation to steer the retail industry away from marketing children’s products under “traditional gender” stereotypes; meaning “boy” and “girl.”

Low said the daughter of one of his staff members inspired the bill when the girl questioned why she had to go to the boys section to find certain toys, reports the Los Angeles Times. “Children have a very unique way of saying things that provide some common sense. I think it’s important that we as a state are demonstrating our values of diversity and inclusion.”

“Part of it is to make sure if you’re a young girl that you can find a police car, fire truck, a periodic table or dinosaur,” said Low. “And then similarly, if you’re a boy if you’re more artistic and want to play with glitter, why not? Why should you feel the stigma of saying ‘Oh, this should be shamed’ and going to a different location?” added Low.

Professor of psychology at UC Santa Cruz, Campbell Leaper, claims “we know from a variety of different research once they have those categories in their heads and if you label something for girls or boys, children will often ignore it if it’s labeled for the other gender.”
