Everything about the murderspree which ended with 17 people dead over the course of 21 days, began in Mesa in 1973.

LOS ANGELES — While some say school safety hinges on guns, cameras or alarms in classrooms, Mark Gomer and Kristi Schiller think specially trained dogs should take point in preventing violence in schools.
If you saw Paul Greengrass's "United 93," a terrifying depiction of one of the doomed flights on 9/11, you know this director can evoke a harrowing, real-life event like few others. In fact, you may not have recovered yet from the experience.
Robert Rodriguez's "Machete Kills" is a sequel based on an end-credits joke from a film that was itself based on a joke trailer contained within a half-joke grindhouse homage. Exactly how many degrees such an endeavor is removed from anything resembling serious cinema would require Jean Baudrillard to calculate, yet for more immediate filmgoing purposes, all there is to see here is a surprisingly long-lived gag finally running out of gas. As violent as its predecessor yet noticeably duller and less outrageous, "Machete Kills" is dragged to the finish line entirely by its director's madcap energy and an absurd cast of major stars in strange cameos.
An upcoming event scheduled just a few days before the start of Domestic Violence Awareness Month will offer a first-hand experience about domestic violence, as well as resources to help.
Terry arose at six one morning to the sounds of a loud banging upon her door. Still dressed in her fuzzy yellow robe and covered in bed head, she proceeded to answer the poundings and ensured the two people were indeed the Chandler Police detectives they claimed to be.
Sheila Polk forget to mention what most police officers consider to the the greatest danger of marijuana in her recent editorial (The Arizona Republic’s ‘My Turn,’ evtnow.com/5uw, Sept. 13).
With another violent mass shooting at the navy yard in D.C. we must again look at why our sick society continues to ignore the grave society gun disease we have in this Country. This recent mass shooting is the result of a ignorant society doing nothing about the problem. This is not a Democratic or Republican political issue nor a right or left issue. It is a disease that is killing many of our Citizens. The bloodshed from gun violence and mental health issues is on all of our hands, since we as voters continue to elect Political Officials that consistently vote against any kind of gun control. We as a society should be saying enough is enough.
Some tea party activists and so-called citizen militia groups are so much against background checks because they fear their guns will be taken away. They fear this because of the hysteria whipped by the NRA that government knows where their guns are. The NRA already has a database on all gun sales. The NRA knows where the guns are. We don’t want your guns, but we don’t want guns in the hands of criminals, gangsters, domestic and foreign terrorists, and unhinged persons.
Guns didn’t kill Christopher Lane and I’m not so sure genuine racism is to blame. Can minors fully understand such hate? We do know the teens who gunned down the athlete, who was jogging in Duncan, Oklahoma, say they were “bored.”
The outlaw romance "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" is a lyrical, sepia-toned folk tale, awash in 1970s filmmaking and the kind of stylized folksiness that pickling Brooklyn hipsters with handlebar mustaches will positively drool over.
"You're Next" is a nasty little slasher film that starts poorly but gets better once most of the cast has been butchered.
"2 Guns"? Please. There are enough guns in this movie to arm a small country. Maybe a medium-sized one.
"Beverly Hills Cop." ''Lethal Weapon." ''48 Hours." ''Tango & Cash." The buddy cop movie is a reliable mainstay of our popular culture. And the cops are pretty much always guys.

“The son of Sen. Flake illustrates why full-time fathering is important.”
“With the right to bear arms comes a great responsibility to use caution and common sense on handgun purchases. And it’s just plain common sense that there be a waiting period to allow local law-enforcement officials to conduct background checks on those who wish to purchase handguns.” That’s a quote from former President Ronald Reagan in 1991. In addition to supporting background checks on gun sales, President Reagan championed the original assault weapons ban and urged Congress to pass the Brady Act. As governor of California, he signed the Mulford Act, which prohibited the open carrying of firearms in public.
Humanity's home planet hardly merits the name-check in "After Earth," M. Night Shyamalan's sci-fi survival tale whose shipwreck action could (with the exception of a scene where our hero scrawls a crude map over Lascaux-like cave paintings) take place on any old life-supporting globe in the cosmos. The disappointingly generic film, which strands a father and son (Will and Jaden Smith) on Earth a thousand years after a planet-wide evacuation, will leave genre audiences pining for the more Terra-centric conceits of "Oblivion," not to mention countless other future-set films that find novelty in making familiar surroundings threatening. Will Smith's presence, not just as co-star but as originator of the story, seems likely to carry box office receipts beyond the benchmark of Shyamalan's previous picture, the wretched "The Last Airbender," but those hoping for a franchise should navigate elsewhere.
"Star Trek Into Darkness" is like fan-boy fiction on a $185 million budget. It's reverential, it's faithful, it's steeped in "Trek" mythology.

“The richest American company Apple is going to borrow billions & billions to run the company, probably from themselves because you don’t have to pay taxes on borrowed money. While a venter worries about the homeless defecating and urinating in Mesa. When is congress going to stop these wealthy corporations from defecating and urinating on America.”
