Texas School Shooter’s Grandpa Says They Had ‘No Idea’ He Bought Two AR-15s, Reveals He Shot Grandma In The Head A Week After They Celebrated His 18th Birthday

Published

The grandfather of the Texas school shooter has revealed that the family was unaware that he had legally purchased two AR-15 rifles last week.

Salvador Ramos, 18, was shot dead by police yesterday after killing 19 fourth graders and two teachers at Uvalde’s Robb Elementary School.

He shot his grandmother in the head at home, then stole her car and drove it to school, crashing in a ditch before shooting dead people from class to class. He was later assassinated.

According to a law enforcement official, a Border Patrol agent who was nearby when the shooting began rushed into the school without waiting for backup and shot and killed the gunman who was behind a barricade.

The agent was wounded but able to walk out of the school, the law enforcement source said.

According to a law enforcement source, the agent was injured but was able to walk out of the school.

Ramos was only 18 when he went to buy two AR-15s and over 300 rounds of gun ammunition at the Oasis Outback store in Uvalde, a 10-minute drive from his house.

His grandmother, believed to be 66-year-old Celia Martinez, took him to Applebee’s for dinner to celebrate his birthday, unaware that he had plans to go on a shooting spree.

Her husband, Rolando Reyes, 74, told ABC News on Wednesday that neither he nor his wife were aware their grandson had purchased the firearms.

‘I had no idea he had weapons.’ If I had known, I would have reported it,’ said Rolando, who has a felony conviction and is not permitted to be in a home with firearms.

Despite being shot in the head, Ramos’ grandmother survived. She is currently in the hospital.

The shooter’s grandfather also revealed that he was quiet but would occasionally accompany him to work.

‘I used to bring him to work with me on occasion. Not all of the time, but occasionally. He did not attend school this year. He didn’t complete his education. You could try to tell him, but nowadays’ kids believe they know everything.

‘He was very quiet and didn’t say much.’

The teen did not live with his mother because they had “problems,” according to the grandfather.

He claims he was out of the house when the teen opened fire. A neighbor called to inform him that his wife had been shot, but by the time he returned to the house, Ramos had fled in his grandmother’s car.

‘A neighbor called to tell me she’d been shot.’ When I arrived, he told me he’d left. It still hasn’t hit him,’ he admitted.

Ramos told a friend before the shooting that he ‘looked very different now.’

He messaged less than a week ago, ‘You wouldn’t recognize me.’

On May 12, Ramos messaged a woman in Los Angeles on Instagram, tagging her in a photo of the guns.

Why Ghana’s Army Is Useless : Oliver Barker Explains Coup Comment

Published

on

Oliver Barker-Vormawor, convenor of the #FixTheCountry movement has opened up on why he labeled the Ghana Armed Forces as “useless”.

Recall that Oliver Barker-Vormawor took to his social media page to describe the Ghana Army as useless and also threatened to stage a coup.

According to Oliver Barker, he labeled the Armed Forces because the military has subjected themselves to active brutalization of citizens instead of protecting them. In an interview on Asaase Radio, Barker argued that he called them useless because of recent behavior.

The comment from Oliver Barker comes following an interview he granted on June, 10th…

“I think our Ghana Armed Forces is useless because this is the image so many people have of them. They think its [their] own job is to run around our streets and kill us. They are supposed to be a pillar of our democracy,” Barker-Vormawor said.

“I have seen so many times our army being in our communities brutalizing and killing us. I have seen our armed forces being directly involved in the [unaccountable] deaths of Ghanaian citizens.

“Take Ejura for instance, our army killed us. When I see our army operating in a way that is unconstitutional, you and I have to call them out and by so doing we call them useless because they are unable to protect our democracy. I believe that the Ghana Armed Forces is useless,” he added.

Okudzeto Exposes Akufo-Addo Again For Hiring Expensive €20K Per Hour Private Jet

Published

on

The North Tongu MP, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has exposed President Akufo-Addo for hiring an expensive private jet on his latest trip.

Okudzeto in a Facebook post with accompanying photos wrote the following:

Incorrigible President Akufo-Addo has done it again.

After pretending he was a changed man by flying commercial on his last two trips to the US and the UK, he has returned to his grossly insensitive and reckless ways of profligate travelling in ultra-luxurious charters.

Probably thinking he will escape our unimpeachable surveillance if he switched companies, President Akufo-Addo on this occasion decided to abandon his favourite LX-DIO operated by Global Jet Luxembourg and opted for German-based private jet operator — K5-Aviation.

K5-Aviation has been licensed to operate its luxury fleet by the German National Aviation Authority (Luftfahrt-Bundesamt, LBA) since June 2011.

As usual, President Akufo-Addo ordered their top-of-the-range and most expensive aircraft in their collection — the Airbus ACJ319. It is registered D-Alex.

Its serial number is 5963, Type Code A319 and a Mode S of 3C70B8.

Being a more expensive luxury carrier, its oligarchic features include a Master bedroom with double bed and connecting bathroom with shower; 2 additional bedrooms; 3 washrooms; a Master bathroom with a walk-in shower; Air Humidification system; Airshow and 5 external cameras; Gogo 2Ku high-speed Wi-Fi, up to 70 Mbit/sec for streaming and video calls (charged extra); Video on demand and DVD including a 55” screen; music streaming; PlayStation; external cameras with tailfin view; airshow and a satellite phone.

The 19-VVIP-passenger D-Alex is celebrated for its 5,600 nm = 10,400 km range; equipped with 5 auxiliary centre tanks for intercontinental range and non-stop flights up to 12 hours; Maximum take-off weight of 76,500 kg and an impressive Maximum altitude of 41,000 ft = 12,400m.

This luxury monster is costing the Ghanaian taxpayer €20,000 an hour.

For President Akufo-Addo’s current trip to Belgium and Rwanda beginning Sunday the 19th of June, 2022 to attend the 15th Edition of the European Development Days Forum in Brussels, Belgium, and the 26th Meeting of the Heads of Government of the Commonwealth of Nations in Kigali, Rwanda; we can confirm a conservative bill of €480,000.00.

The 480,000 Euros which is derived from 21 hours of total flight time plus other industry charges works out to some 4.1million Ghana Cedis at current exchange rate.

I must, however, commend First Lady, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo for honourably flying to Kigali aboard Ghana’s Presidential Jet which took her some 4hours and 49minutes. Her confidence in Ghana’s Presidential Jet is refreshing and deeply admirable. Ghanaians are exceedingly proud of her.

It must definitely take a rare kind of insulting insensitivity for President Akufo-Addo to be this wasteful and obstinate at a time Ghanaians are facing a cost of living crisis.

Samuel-Clement wrote: I’m happy Nana Addo is flying in expensive luxurious jets and living large. You parliamentarians don’t cough when it benefits you all—but scream when it goes to one side. You are all ripping the country off one way or the other. Akufo-Addo is no different from you parliamentarians.

Ghana First wrote: Can’t God settle this matter in the air for Ghanaians… Since He enjoys being in the sky… God should call him for answers… God grants Ghanaians’ wishes because this man is too wicked.

Benjamin Dake wrote: So Ghana’s Presidential jet is safe enough to carry our First Lady but the president who keeps singing “my beautiful Rebecca” prefers to fly in a luxurious and more expensive jet….

I don’t understand this man any longer
