Three days ago, Dean didn’t know if her oldest son would live to see her again.

Police report reveals Fla. shooter’s behavior toward his mother …

Newly released police reports depicted mass killer Nikolas Cruz as a threat to his mother and himself, exposing a volatile teen anxious to purchase a gun once he turned 18.

Lynda Cruz called police repeatedly after fights in the family home, including a Jan. 15, 2013, blowout where the infuriated teen threw a chair, a glass and a dog bowl, according to reports obtained by CNN.

“He has mentioned in the past that he would like to purchase a firearm,” noted one of the 30-plus reports filed by cops responding to his Parkland, Fla., home.

The police paperwork covered a stretch from 2011-16, with references to jailed murder suspect Nikolas Cruz as a “mentally ill person” who at one point smacked his mom with a plastic vacuum cleaner

Mother charged after 14-year-old son allegedly stockpiled weapons for school shooting

The mother of a 14-year-old who police say planned to shoot multiple classmates at his Pennsylvania high school was charged on Monday in connection to the foiled plot, authorities said.

Lenora Ann Hendrix, of Markleysburg, Pennsylvania, was charged with knowingly and intentionally delivering or providing a firearm to a minor, according to ABC affiliate WTAE, after her son threatened to carry out a mass shooting at Uniontown High School last month.

The teen, who wasn’t indentified, was taken into police custody on Jan. 25, just days after mass shootings at high schools in Kentucky and Texas. A witness reported that she overheard the suspect saying he would kill four classmates he disliked, officials said.

– Three-and-a-half months after 58 people were killed in a mass shooting at a Las Vegas music festival, a Valley mother injured in the shooting is ready to leave the hospital after months of recovery.

“My kids and my family, I will not quit on them, and I will not quit on myself,” said Jovanna Calzadillas. “Even though I will not be the same Jovanna, I will come back stronger.”

Jovanna, 30, was shot in the head during Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas on October 1. Her brain injury was so severe that doctors did not expect her to live and they spoke with Jovanna’s family about possibly removing her from life support.

“I remember I spoke to three doctors, and they all told me

Ralph J. Dolan: Must dismantle empire to save Mother Earth

Must dismantle empire to save Mother Earth

It’s a sad tale. In my lifetime, America has transformed herself into an increasingly authoritarian nation that practices, or can easily be implicated in, mass murder and atrocities of startling cruelty throughout the world.

Yet we are shocked into numbness over the random violence taking place on U.S. soil, perpetrated by U.S. citizens by other U.S. citizens. Why, it’s become so commonplace that it’s beginning to look almost All-American to be a mass murderer.

America is the current incarnation of empire of the Earth. Empires have a reputation for being cruel stewards of Mother Earth’s riches.

Do we really truly care about saving this magnificent Mother Earth? If we do, there’s one tine stumbling block — we must dismantle the empire.

To begin to even think about dismantling the empire, one must be ready to dismantle the economy. It is all of one piece in the pursuit
