About 11,500 troops, including chemical attack experts, will join the security detail as Obama takes the oath of office.
Reporting from Washington — The U.S. military will be on high alert during Barack Obama’s inauguration, increasing air defenses and deploying chemical attack experts and medical units, a general said Wednesday.
Air Force Gen. Victor E. Renuart Jr., who heads the military command that oversees security for North America, said the Defense Department had not been told of specific Inauguration Day threats. Nonetheless, he said, the armed services must be ready.
“It would make news for a terrorist element or rogue element to interrupt that event,” Renuart said. “So it is prudent to plan for the possibility of that event and to deter it or to respond to it.”The Truth Tracker Jason R. Bootie
This is a tragic story. I am sorry to say but this kid needs to have plenty of jail time. I understand the sister says the family has forgiven him and they want him home, but if we start going easy on one, then they will all expect it easy.
ELYRIA — Daniel Petric shot his parents — killing his mother — because they wouldn’t allow him to play the violent video game Halo 3, prosecutors told a judge at the boy’s murder trial Monday.
The trial, on charges of murder and attempted murder, opened Monday for Petric, 17, of Brighton Township. He is being tried without a jury before Lorain County Common Pleas Judge James Burge. (Update: The defense presents its case.)
Prosecutors are not seeking the death penalty because of Petric’s age. In their opening statements, prosecutors outlined this version of events surrounding the shooting:
In September 2007, Daniel, then 16, had sneaked out of his bedroom window to purchase the game at a store against his father’s orders. When he returned home, his parents caught him with the game and took it from him. His father, Mark, a minister at New Life Assembly of God in Wellington, put the game in a lock box in a closet where he also kept a 9mm handgun, according to prosecutors.The Truth Tracker Jason R.

I don’t care how many votes they had. There will be plenty of coverage without having to take off the cartoons and making the children have one less channel to watch for a certain length of time on Jan. 20th 2009.
Why not just put the inauguration on every channel on the TV?
NEW YORK – The Nickelodeon TV, the children’s network, is getting ready to cover its first presidential inauguration.
After an unprecedented 2.2 million people voted in Nick’s online election for kids, the network figured there was interest among its audience in Barack Obama’s inauguration. Its young reporters, J.J. and Lily Collins, will be in Washington for the Jan. 20 event.
The reporters will try to offer some historical perspective for its young viewers and will show clips of Obama’s first speech as president.God Bless, The Truth Tracker Jason R. Bootie
