OH MY GOSH!!! 2007 MURDER SOLVED THAT I HAD POSTED AN INFO ALERT ON TO REVIVE PUBLIC INTEREST IN THE CASE!!!

I was stunned to read today a Nov. 13, 2018 article in the San Diego Union Tribune that the 2007 murder of 39 year-old, developmentally-disabled Jodine Serrin has now been solved. In 2010, I discovered that public interest in the unsolved case had dried and that police were not finding any answers to the brutal slaying of Jodine Serrin. So, to help re-energize public interests and hopefully to motivate anyone with information on the murder to contact police I published an article on my blog titled "She Was Important Too":

ACTION ALERT: SHE WAS IMPORTANT TOO! Help Police Find The Killer of Jodine Serrin, A Mentally-Challenged Carlsbad Woman. https://jameshartlinereport.blogspot.com/2010/03/action-alert-she-was-important-too-help.html

Jodine Serrin, known to family as Jodi, was found dead in her bed on Valentine’s Day 2007. The 39-year-old was developmentally disabled but highly functioning. Now, the case has finally been solved. Although it doesn't lessen the pain and anguish everyone felt over the brutality of the losing Jodi to a cold blooded killer, at least there is now a measure of justice achieved in knowing who the killer was. However, there is an even darker reality to this unnecessary and violent murder. The killer committed suicide six years ago.

Her killer, Carlsbad police say, was a man named David Mabrito. The one-time Oceanside resident is dead now, from suicide six years ago. You can read the full details of the crime and how the police used DNA and modern genealogical science to determine that Mabrito, in fact, killed innocent and vulnerable Jodi Serrin. May we never forget Jodi and all the other innocent men, women and children who are continuously and unjustly abused in our society. America must turn back to God before we lose this nation to anarchy and then we will no longer exist as a country. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/public-safety/sd-me-serrin-solved-20181113-story.html

Ex-Gay Christian James Hartline Is Sexually Assaulted And Brutally Beaten Inside San Diego Gay Community: San Diego Police Dept Refused To Apprehend Violent Perpetrator

After having received hundreds of death threats over the last nine months from a social media rape-shaming mob called #HisSideToo on Friday, Nov. 30, 2018 I was brutally assaulted on a public sidewalk at 1:30pm inside of Hillcrest, San Diego's gay community. I had just finished two medical appointment and attending an arts and crafts fair put on by staff at the UCSD hospital when I headed home to meet a repairman to make some repairs at my home. As I walked down Washington Street near the Mediterranean Cafe a man who I had never seen before walked passed me, and as he did, he slapped me hard on my buttocks. This is sexual assault. I have since learned that there is a growing epidemic of men who slap unsuspecting targets - both men and women - on the buttocks to shock and stun their victims and then once the victim is shocked the perpetrator can physically assault them or, in the case of a female victim, rape them.

Shocked that someone would do this to me, I turned around to face and told him sternly, "Don't ever put your hands on me again!"


He then immediately punched me in the mouth, cutting my lip. He proceeded to punch on me and grabbed me. I could not believe I was going to have to fight someone on a public street. I then grabbed him and attempted to control him, but he would not stop. He smelled of alcohol. I wrestled him into the window of the Mediterranean Cafe where the owner did nothing, he just stood and watched. As a marathon runner who works out while I am battling AIDS and Cancer, I try to keep myself physically strong and in shape. When I was younger, I used to fight alot and won many fights. However, I haven't ever physically walked up to a complete stranger and hit them, nor would I ever do something like that. The last thing I imagined myself doing at 1:30pm on Friday was defending myself from a very violent assault.

The perpetrator, wearing a red hoodie, can be seen walking away from Hillcrest and the Mediterranean Restaurant up Washington Street towards Mission Hills:







I did not want to fight this man or beat him up, but he was out of control and he would not stop. He very specifically targeted me and was trying to hurt me. Even worse, there were four Hispanic standing nearby who appeared to know the man, because after I got the assaulter on the ground and pulled his shirt over his head to stop him from biting me he called one of the women by name claiming he couldn't breath with the shirt over his head. While saying this he couldn't trying to get his head loose to bite me and injure me further. The Hispanic woman who he called by name kept watching and telling me to just let him up while he kept trying to bite me. I was concerned the women were going to jump on me to help him. None of them called the police or tried to stop him.

I eventually wrestled the assaulter to the ground and he would not stop, he was determined to hurt me. He repeatedly attempted to sink his teeth into my wrist to grind his teeth into my tendons and artery. I kept using my elbow to press his head onto the ground to prevent him from biting me. Over
and over he attempted to bite me and he would not stop. I tried hitting him over his shirt that I pulled over his head and he would not stop. I tried bending his fingers to get him to stop and his fingers were like rubber and he felt no pain of any kind. I was very fearful that he was on some sort of drug that caused him to not feel pain and that kept him getting stronger instead of tired. He was like a rabid dog as he continuously tried to get his jaws on my wrist.

I kept screaming, "Help me! Somebody Help me!" Not one person would help me. Fifteen people just stood around the assault watching and not one person would help me. The Mediterranean Restaurant owner refused to call the police or do anything. He just let it happen. I have walked passed his restaurant a thousand times and I find his behavior criminal and despicable to have not even called the police. Not one person would help me stop the perpetrator. They all acted as if they had tickets to watch a fight and were spectators to me being physically assaulted by this violent criminal. This is San Diego's gay community where they constantly rant about hate crimes and protection for gays from discrimination and abuse. Yet, they tolerate and encourage hate and violence against Christians like me. They only care about constitutional rights and law enforcement when it comes to protecting them.

The perpetrator finally wrestled his head loose and he immediately sunk his jaws into my wrist amd began to use his teeth as a weapon to commit great bodily injury to me. He was trying to kill me. He ripped a huge chunck of flesh from my arm and attemtped to bite me again. He would not stop. I kept screaming for someone to help me, but no one would help me. Finally one of the spectators called the police and she said I needed an ambulance and she described the perpetrator and that he was wearing a red hoodie, 5' 8", 130 pounds, light brown skin, brown hair completely cut off, with a Puerto Rican accent.

(My right arm, wrist area where the perpetrator had ripped the flesh off of my arm with this teeth. I have no idea if he had a communicable disease and the UCSD Emergency Room refused to test me or do anything to treat my wounds. They never even cleaned my wounds when they sent me home.)



As I continued to hold his head away from me, the same Hispanic woman who the perpetrator called by name came up to me and said, "Just let him up and he'll stay back from you." As soon as I let him, he tried to come at me again, but stopped once he realized so many people were standing around watching him. I told him he was going to jail for what he had done to me. That is when the same Hispanic woman who was with the perpetrator and three other Hispanic woman said, "You assault him. You started this." Which is a complete lie. I didn't even know this violent assaulter and there is no way on earth that I am going to walk up to a complete stranger and assault someone.

It took the police officer 20 minutes to arrive at the scene of the crime. When the perpetrator knew the police had been called he fled the scene after I told him not to leave. He walked away as if he was completely sober. He knew exactly what he was doing. He had purposefully targeted me and the people standing around watching this horrific assault were duplicit. It was as if they intended to be there at that time to watch the assault take place. Not one of the fifteen people watching showed the lease bit of concern at my wounds which were very serious. They didn't say a thing. They offered no help of any kind even after the assaulter took off. The four Hispanic woman also left right after the assaulter left.  Several gays walked by and smirked at me as I sat on the ground bleeding from several wounds. I would see out of the corner of my eyes that a SDPD was at the corner across from the assault and the crowd of fifteen people watching it and the officer did not stop, he just kept going in the opposite direction. He did not return until over ten minutes later, long enough to let the perpetrator get away. Only one officer showed up at the exact same time the ambulance arrived.

Here was my condition as they arrived:










Shockingly, only one police officer showed up and when I confronted him about going in the opposite direction when he was across the street, he claimed he had been given the wrong address. After the medics put me on a gurney and put me on the ambulance, they just sat there and didn't tske me to the emergency room. I was in terrible pain from my injuries and they didn't even treat me like I was severely injured. I was going into shock from the whole incident. The police officer interviewed the restaurant owner and the he came to speak with me in the ambulance. In disbelief, the officer told me that the restaurant owner stated that I assaulted the perpetrator and that I started the altercation. I replied, "That is not what happened. That is a lie and you let the assaulter get away after he did this to me." 

The officer went back to restaurant and that is when three of the Hispanic women returned. They started talking and laughing with the owner. The officer than returned to the ambulamce and said, "I have four witnesses that all say you hit him first, that you started it and there is a video." I said that it is not what happened." The officer then said, "Well, since you started it, I am not allowed to take a statement from you and I won't be pursuing it further. If you insist on pressing charges, I will charge you both." Then he left. 

Because of the way the police officer treated me, the medics treated me terrible and didn't even treat me as if I had been injured. When I finally arrived at the #UCSD #Healthcare Emergency Room they treated me just as dismissive and indifferent because of the way the medics treated me. The entire time in the emergency room they never cleaned my wounds, they never checked them out for anything other than x-rays. They never did a victim's interview, they never treated me for emotional trauma as a victim of a crime. They did nothing to help me. They were no different than the people who stood around watching me get assaulted. They treated me like a criminal who didn't deserve medical treatment after being assaulted.

The police officer finally showed up at the hospital to interview me and to take pictures of my injuries. He then told me nothing would be done because the assault was only a misdeameanor and he left. He never apologized for the cruel and indifferent manner he treated me as a victim of a very serious assault. He never attempted to apprehend the assaulter. He never did anything at all to enforce the law he was hired to enforce. He never once called for any other officers to show up and apprehend the real criminal. He never charged the restaurant owner or the Hispanic women for making false statements to the police. And the perpetrator is running around where he can assault and hurt more San Diego citizens.

This is the result of the last nine months I have been receiving death threats from the individuals who use the hashtag #HisSideToo for the purposes of attacking rape victims. I became their target of relentless death threats, they called my home three times, said they knew where I lived, where I receive my healthcare and where I travel everyday - when I began defending rape victim #MelissaSchuman after she reported be raped by #BackstreetBoys singer #NickCarter . I kniw Melissa Schuman and her husband from Christian events I've held in the past in San Diego's gay community. After I saw on #Twitter that this group #HisSideToo had been making death threats against Melissa Schuman and her young son to pressure her to drop the rape charges against Nick Carter, sending dangerous packages to her home and endless rape shaming attacks against her, I responded to one of those attacking her who had sent me a tweet to encourage me to join them in attacking her, I responded by defending her, stating I knew her and that she had been raped. In turn, I then became a target of the same threats to the point that I was forced to file a police report in May. However, #SDPD #SanDiego #Police refused to investigate the threats, saying they didn't have the resources to investigate online death threats.




















Then, Friday I was brutally assaulted the #SDPD again refused to do anything about the threats as I suffered horrible, painful injuries. I have no faith in #SDPD to the right thing, to investigate the death threats made against me and I will do what I always do: suffer and trust in Jesus Christ to watch over me and vindicate me.

My Commentary on Corrupt San Diego State Senator Joel Anderson in response to inewsource.org expose on outside money influencing Anderson's 2016 run for County Supervisor

My Commentary on Corrupt San Diego State Senator Joel Anderson in response to inewsource.org expose on outside money influencing Anderson run for San Diego County Board of Supervisors in 2016

My Commentary on Corrupt San Diego State Senator Joel Anderson in response to inewsource expose on outside money influencing Anderson run for San Diego County Board of Supervisors in 2016:
http://inewsource.org/2015/08/20/outside-groups-joel-anderson-county-supervisor/

Two of the most serious, recent signs of chronic corruption and hypocrisy in the political career of Joel Anderson are so disturbing that the implications go far beyond Anderson's insidious obsession with being a career political bureaucrat. Indeed, everyone should be asking themselves WHY are East County evangelical church leaders continuing to violate their alleged Biblical Christianity as they partner with the very unbiblical political decisions being made by Anderson? The money trail of illegal campaign contributions to Joel Anderson's campaign coffers from church-connected construction firm Hamann Construction, his previous illegal endorsement by the conservative group California Republican Assembly and his untoward scam of mixing a prior door-to-door effort to sign up voters for a pro-life parental notification initiative with his asking those same voters to sign his candidacy registration drive to avoid paying the filing fee are demonstrative of a politician who is so chronically void of all scruples that he should be classified as a walking scandal waiting to happen as he prepares to share a prison cell with Duke Cunningham.

After being found guilty of taking illegal campaign contributions and paying some hefty fines, it is mindboggling that Anderson is again taking large campaign contributions from the very people tied to his earlier illegal campaign contributions. What kind of back room deals is Anderson making with executives at Hamann Construction so that they continue to load up his campaign with contributions, particularly since Hamann was one of the main culprits in Anderson's earlier disgraceful illegal campaign corruption scandal?

Anderson fined $20,000 by the FPPC for illegal campaign contributions: http://www.10news.com/news/la-mesa-assemblyman-fined-over-campaign-contributions 

What is so horrific about the corrupt Anderson-Hamann relationship is that Hamann and its various relational tentacles in East County are intimately involved in some of San Diego's biggest mega-churches. Some of Hamann's executives have held positions on the board of El Cajon mega-church Foothills Christian Church at the same time Hamann had an exclusive contract to construct the church's new mega-church facility - while the construction company was also embroiled in the massive illegal campaign contribution scandal with Anderson's campaign.

Equally disturbing is the utter betrayal of Christianity and public safety that Joel Anderson just participated in with his yes vote on AJR 16, a homosexual-coordinated state assembly resolution that pushes for President Obama to reverse the long standing FDA ban on homosexuals donating their blood to the public blood supply due to the CDC classifying men who engage in sex with other men as a threat to the entire public blood supply in America. Added to further concerns that homosexuality poses a grave danger to the blood supply, the CDC recently issued a bulletin that declares HIV transmission rates are skyrocketing among homosexual men and the CDC deemed homosexual men to be so opposed to practicing safe sex in their pursuit of risky sex that the CDC and the FDA have recommended that all HIV negative homosexual men start taking the expensive AIDS medication Truvada as a means of trying to stop the exploding HIV infection rate among homosexuals in the United States.

Here is the text of AJR 16: http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/pub/15-16/bill/asm/ab_0001-0050/ajr_16_bill_20150921_chaptered.pdf 

Joel Anderson's yes vote on AJR 16: http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/pub/15-16/bill/asm/ab_0001-0050/ajr_16_vote_20150903_1159AM_sen_floor.html 

With the new warnings from the CDC about skyrocketing rates of HIV among risk taking homosexuals, it is shocking that AJR 16 was even proposed at all. The idea that politicians are playing politics with the public blood supply by appeasing gay activists in San Francisco and West Hollywood and recommending that the FDA ban on gay blood donors be reversed is incredibly dangerous. The fact that Joel Anderson voted yes on AJR 16 to cully favor with homosexual activists because he didn't think any Christian voters would find out what he did is the devious and politically rotten Joel Anderson on full display.

GOP MAYORAL CANDIDATE KEVIN FAULCONER WALKS OUT ON AIDS PATIENT'S SPEECH DURING TODAY SAN DIEGO'S CITY COUNCIL MEETING



Thousands of San Diego residents hear former homosexual and AIDS patient James Hartline as he shares the intimate details of his life during today's San Diego city council meeting. In a city of 1.4 million citizens where politicians are being bribed to promote gay marriage and homosexual activists have taken control of nearly every aspect of the municipal government, one man is refusing to comply ...with San Diego's ungodliness and forced political correctness. While most San Diego Christians are completely silent as they watch their city taken over by a small, but powerful and well financed homosexual political movement, ex-homosexual James Hartline is taking his message of truth and Biblical correctness right into the very center of the city government. James is a well known former homosexual who was infected with AIDS inside of a local San Diego gay sex club in 1997. Despite receiving many death threats and being abandoned by many churches whose pastors want Hartline silenced for speaking out against wealthy Republican Party politicians who donate to churches in exchange for access to church votes, Hartline refuses to stop speaking out about corruption, sin and most importantly, hisrelationship with Jesus Christ.



At today's city council meeting, Hartline gave the city council members, their staff and thousands of television viewers a speech they had never expected to hear during a meeting filled with discussions about budgets, jobs and new city construction projects. With an accompanying power point presentation which featured real life photos of Hartline's abusive childhood, near death experiences and his 17 year-long battle with AIDS, James gave a riveting account of his childhood, adulthood and turning his life over Jesus Christ.



While every member of the city council and those in attendance listened intently to Hartline's presentation, Councilman Kevin Faulconer walked out of the city council chambers to mock Hartline's speech. This was the same Kevin Faulconer who was all smiles on Sunday as he campaigned for votes inside of Miles McPherson's The Rock Church.



Faulconer isn't too happy with Hartline. Once considered a shoo-in to become San Diego's next mayor, Faulconer held a commanding 17 point lead in the polls as recently as three weeks ago. His lead has fallen to 1% over fellow Councilmember David Alvarez thanks to James Hartline publishing numerous well-read articles which have exposed a litany of corruption and dishonest back room deals Faulconer has made with megachurch pastors Mike Macintosh of Horizon Christian Fellowship and Miles McPherson of The Rock Church. You can watch James Hartline's speech at today's city council meeting by going to the city council link provided and sliding the time ruler to the time of 24:21.

San Diego's 2014 Election: Ex-Gay Christian James Hartline vs Gay Carl DeMaio's Duck Dynasty Scandal



I was born and raised in California. I have fought and labored on behalf of things I feel are in the best interest of San Diegans for many years. I made great sacrifices to fight for the preservation of the Mt. Soledad Cross atop the Veterans War Memorial. Many of us prayed hundreds of hours, labored for votes and rallies and fought courageously in the face of a vicious and insidious atheist attack to tear down the Mt. Soledad Cross in its current location. Carl DeMaio was in San Diego during our efforts and he was nowhere to be found, nor did he offer us a single bit of help. It is a hideous and vile thing for political prostitute Carl DeMaio to now show up and trash our honor and legitimate claim of saving the Mt. Soledad Cross with his sociopathic manipulation of the voters on this matter. 

I will not remain silent as antichristian Carl DeMaio attempts to steal the issue of the Mt. Soledad Cross to satisfy his completely self-serving addiction to get elected to congress.

And don't get me started about last year's "DeMaio Does Duck Dynasty" scandal to swindle votes out of evangelical Christians with the help of NOM anti-gay attorney and Mt. Soledad Cross defender Charles LiMandri. Limandri gave the alleged anal-shy Carl DeMaio's failed 2012 mayoral bid $500 in exchange for DeMaio's quid pro quo promise that he wouldn't support homosexual issues as mayor if the pastors supported his mayoral run. $500, must be the going rate for political prostitutes on the lower end of the scale. Even Bob Filner charged more, but a hooker is a hooker no matter which church pew or seedy hotel room the dirty dead is negotiated. 

It took DeMaio about two weeks to break his vow of political celibacy to LiMandri when he showed up at the 2012 San Diego Gay Pride Parade with his porn promoting gay lover Johnathan Hale. The gays responded by turning their backsides on DeMaio and his parade contingent of pimps, players and part-time gay haters. As I correctly predicted last year, my reporting on the LiMandri-DeMaio "le coup de foudre" betrayal of Christian and Transvestite voters would defeat Demaio's 2012 mayoral run. 

As desperate as he was in 2012, the carpetbagging, bathroom stall toe tapping Carl DeMaio is just as desperate in 2013. When voters didn't think DeMaio could dig any deeper into Tony Krvaric's rectal playbook, he digs just a little deeper and pulls out the 2004 re-elect Dick Murphy-Mt. Soledad Cross get out the vote party guide. 

All of these users and abusers of San Diego voters are perpetual hypocrites who disgust me and they disgust The Lord who died on the cross and the men who died on the battlefield as represented in the Mt. Soledad cross. The corruption has to go in this city and I intend to lead the broom squad to sweep out all of the dirt.

Video Of A Miracle on Memorial Day - Running4God: The Miraculous Running Project Of James Hartline



After battling AIDS for 16 years, Hepatitis C for 24 years, several bouts of cancer, joint degeneration, two major knee reconstructions, an ankle reconstruction, and a recent near-death experience and open-abdomen surgery to remove a nearly-reputured gall bladder just five months ago, James Hartline is proving that God still performs miracles in the lives of those who believe in Jesus Christ as Savior, Deliverer and Healer. 

At the one hour point in a training run that last one hour and fifty minute, James Hartline videotapes his purpose for training for the upcoming San Diego Rock 'n' Roll 1/2 Marathon and how God is helping him to prepare for the 13 mile race.

"Free those who are wrongly imprisoned; Lighten the burden of those who work for you. Let the oppressed go free, and remove the chains that bind people. Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help. Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon. The LORD will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring." Isaiah 58

James Hartline Films - The Beautiful Children: A Celebration of Champions in San Diego



James Hartline Films - The Beautiful Children: A Celebration of Champions in San Diego. James Hartline films hundreds of pediatric cancer patients as they marched during a parade for healing in this beautiful and inspiring segment of his miracle journal Running 4 God. I am running for God and He leads me as I go. Exactly five months ago, I nearly died and was hospitalized for seven days while having emergency surgery. In addition to battling AIDS, Hepatitis C, HIV wasting and degenerating of the joints, my weight dropped to 134 lbs after the doctors removed a nearly-ruptured gall bladder.

 

Five months ago, the Lord pruned my existence upon this earth, refining me once again in the furnace of affliction. I faded, but my faith increased. While others in similar circumstances would have perished from the face of the earth, I rose upon the swirling winds of God's promises of restoration. The shackles of infirmity cannot bind my faith, nor imprison my obedience to Jehovah Rapha, the God who heals me. For five months since the hospitalization and surgery, I have put on my running shoes and I have run with faith.



For five months, I have run stronger and swifter. There is pain in the running, but there are also rewards at the end of each extension of my endurance. With every breath pushed deeper into the burning embers of waning fatigue, I experience growing stability in my stride and confidence in the course that lies ahead.



On Saturday morning, I ran eight miles in 1 hour and 1 minute. It has been 154 days since the hospitalization and surgery. There are two weeks remaining until the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll 1/2 Marathon. Will I actually be ready to complete a 1/2 marathon just 22 weeks after a near-death experience? That is the question I asked myself as I set out for my Saturday morning training run. As I completed the training run, God had an answer waiting for me.

What you are about to watch in this video is what I captured on my pocket-sized mini-camera at the end of my run. As I began to cool down and catch my breath, I walked into the path of the parade of children you will see in the video. Their brightly colored t-shirts were so eye-catching that the distant observer might overlook the reality that many of the children were jaundice and limping. Some of the children were so thin that the slightest wisp of ocean breeze would have knocked them to their feet had they not had a crutch, a walking cane or an accompanying adult to lean upon. Yet, for all their obvious physical disadvantages, these children were walking in triumphant exuberance. My eyes surveyed their joyful parade and my mind recorded the experience as if I was watching the royal victors marching in celebration after winning an impossible battle in a great war.



These are the beautiful children. Every child in this parade has been battling pediatric cancer. If I hadn't heard the event emcee declaring over a loudspeaker the names of each child and the purpose for their marching, I would not have known why they were there. I had started my Saturday run to train myself for a marathon and I finished my run with an inspiring glimpse of hundreds of children who are training for the marathon of life. Their parade was part of the Rady Children's Hospital annual event to support pediatric cancer patients called A Celebration of Champions. For a brief moment in the sunshine, these heroic kids were able to step outside of the imposing and sanitized walls of their hospital existences. I had the privilege of being there and hearing those innocent voices, temporarily separated from their chemotherapy and impending surgeries, as they shouted to a world which often segregates itself from children they deem to be imperfect. On this Saturday morning, these lovely children declared, "I'm here! Right now, I'm still here!"

But when you give a reception, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, since they do not have the means to repay you; for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous." Luke 14:13-14

Encourage the exhausted, and strengthen the feeble. Say to those with anxious heart, "Take courage, fear not. Behold, your God will come with vengeance. The recompense of God will come, but He will save you." Then the eyes of the blind will be opened and the ears of the deaf will be unstopped. Then the lame will leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute will shout for joy. For waters will break forth in the wilderness and streams in the Arabah. Isaiah 35:3-6

My Response To Boston University's Giddy Portrayal Of The Boston Islamic Terrorist


Everything We Know About Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Dead Bombing SuspectBy Timothy Burke 

Boston University wrote an article on the Boston Islamic terrorist in 2010 as if he was a funny, disciplined athlete with morals. 

My response to their giddy idolization of this murderous terrorist was posted this morning. I wrote: So, why is a major university so giddy about reporting on the Islamic aspects of this terrorist as if what he believes is just a fun day walking in the park (or a sidewalk at the Boston Marathon)? Why is a major university writing a story about this Islamic terrorist's demeaning beliefs about women as if his hatemon-ghering of women is a honorable training characteristic among boxers. A major university would never promote or highlight a Christian student in its newspaper, nor would it publish an article about the dating habits, hobbies and training techniques of a Christian athlete. So, why would a university paper paint a positive of picture of this Islamic terrorist with nauseating comments like - Tamerlan says he doesn't drink or smoke anymore: "God said no alcohol." A muslim, he says: "There are no values anymore," and worries that "people can't control themselves." Tamerlan says he doesn't usually take his shirt off so girls don't get bad ideas: "I'm very religious." Tamerlan says he loves the movie "Borat," even though some of the jokes are a bit too much.

San Diego Runners Group Sends Powerful Message of Love To Boston Marathon Runners

Over 100 runners showed up to run in downtown San Diego in solidarity with the Boston Runners. Here is the photo we took right after we completed our running session and also my journal entry about the Tuesday night run that I wrote on the San Diego's Runner discussionboard website:


 

I joined my Running group on Tuesday night to send a powerful message to the world and to the runners who were injured at this weekend's Boston Marathon that we are praying for them and we are refusing to give up our public running in the face of terrorist threats.

My Running Journal Entry on The San Diego Runner's Discussion Board Website:

"A powerful run tonight. There was a tremendous show of Spirit and Love released by all our runners for our running brothers and sisters in Boston. When evil attacks one runner, it has attacked all of us who are runners. And we will respond to such evil as one unified runner. If a Boston runner is temporarily incapable of running, then we will be your legs. If a Boston running heart is weary, then our hearts will beat twice as hard for you. If a Boston runner is gasping for air, then we will inhale extra oxygen from the bright shores of our California beaches and send forth our exhilarating breaths in the form of comforting kisses. Whether it be an intimidating mountain or the wide, hot fatigue of desert valley, you, the Boston runner will run again. And when you do, as the cameras capture you crossing the finish line of a future Boston Marathon, give us a little wink from your eye as sign that we in San Diego crossed the finish line with you."
