postheadericon Fugitive Home Intruder In Recent Home Invasion Cited As “Not A Threat To Public Safety” — Why Home Defense Is Up To You

AUBURN, NEW HAMPSHIRE — A lieutenant of a small New Hampshire town told the public that a home intruder who fled their pursuit is not to be considered a threat to public safety. This is after a home owner discovered that same man breaking into his home during the morning hours. The homeowner fired a single shot at the intruder, sending the suspect fleeing into the woods.

According to NH 1 News, Rockingham County deputies and New Hampshire State Police pursued the suspect for a limited time before losing track of him. The suspect’s general description was given to the local news media outlets but the enthusiasm in tracking this suspect down seems to be very limited.

Home defense really does come down to you. The police will show up after it’s over and gladly take your statement after the fact but they’re not interested in pursuing someone for several days or even several hours.

Think to yourself: what if this man was violent? What if he had no qualms about using violence to achieve his means and it was just one armed homeowner stopping him?

Now ask what would have happened if that homeowner had not been armed.

This is why home defense is safely within the jurisdiction of the occupants of that home. It’s every person’s duty to be prepared to fight off potential intruders. Each household can approach this in a fashion that benefits them best, but ultimately they have to pursue it.

In a future article, we’ll talk a bit more about home defense preparedness. There’s an issue of either staging a gun where it’s accessible for trusted family members to use or always carrying. We prefer always carrying. It’s a good habit to get into as a licensed concealed carrier and it’s also a fantastic choice for those who are just interested in keeping their home a bit safer.

You can’t use a gun that you don’t have on you. Your home deserves it and your family deserves it, too. Think defensively and carry within the home.

postheadericon Microsoft announces SAP’s choice of Azure to help enterprises transform HR

REDMOND, Wash. – Oct. 18, 2016 – Microsoft Corp. on Tuesday announced an expanded partnership with SAP to provide public cloud services for the SAP® SuccessFactors® HCM Suite. SAP will make its cloud-based human capital management solutions available on Microsoft Azure over the next five years. This is SAP’s first move to supplement its own infrastructure and operate SAP SuccessFactors solutions in a third-party public cloud, recognizing the experience both companies have in supporting global enterprise clients. With the addition of Azure, SAP has a trusted, global cloud and a powerful data platform to help it drive companies’ human resources transformation, and the potential to dramatically improve business outcomes.

“Microsoft and SAP share a commitment to empowering digital transformation across every aspect of business,” said Judson Althoff, executive vice president, Worldwide Commercial Business at Microsoft. “The combination of SAP’s market-leading, innovative human capital management solutions with Microsoft’s intelligent cloud will equip companies around the world to help maximize the potential and skills of their most valuable asset, their people.”

SAP will have significant additional capacity to run operational workloads of SAP SuccessFactors solutions on Azure, beginning with demo environments, to support its continuing client user growth. Azure provides enterprise-grade security, an open developer platform and advanced data services that organizations of all kinds can use to innovate and grow. With nearly 90 percent of the Fortune 500 as customers, the Microsoft Cloud is offered in more worldwide datacenter regions than any other major cloud provider.

“SAP SuccessFactors is the fastest growing core HR solution, and offers an unmatched depth and breadth across the entire HCM suite, of any vendor in the industry,” said Mike Ettling, president of SAP SuccessFactors. “We’ve seen exponential growth in the past two years, with 42 million users now benefiting from our market-leading solutions. In selecting Azure, we will be able to expand our reach even further, with the reliability that is required of these mission-critical applications, and continue to innovate and enhance services to meet client needs across additional environments.”

This deal builds on the longstanding partnership between Microsoft and SAP, including integrations between Office 365 and SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite, as well as SAP Fieldglass® Vendor Management System, SAP Ariba® and Concur® solutions. The Microsoft and SAP partnership also includes broad support for the SAP HANA® platform on Azure to enable companies to deliver mission-critical applications and data analytics from the cloud. Microsoft recently announced the general availability of Azure large instances, hardware configurations specifically designed for the largest and most demanding SAP workloads. SAP now enables its customers to build and deploy custom mobile hybrid SAP Fiori® apps on SAP HANA Cloud Platform that can be managed, deployed and protected with Microsoft Intune.

Microsoft (Nasdaq “MSFT” @microsoft) is the leading platform and productivity company for the mobile-first, cloud-first world, and its mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.

postheadericon Homeowner Shoots Violent Intruder — But This Is San Francisco, So He Has To Prove It

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA — A well known filmmaker and activist shot and killed an intruder who had made prior threats of violence against him. The shooting occurred inside his home and San Francisco police initially arrested him pending charges of murder. The District Attorney’s office decided to not file charges at this time due to the nature of the shooting. It is believed to have been motivated out of self defense.

“There was a shooting, and there was a death and it was in self-defense,” the filmmaker’s attorney said. “The person who was killed was an unwanted intruder making serious threats of death.”

Because this is San Francisco — and not nearly anywhere else in the country — someone defending himself inside his own home is almost considered a de facto murderer. The SFGate publication interviewed a legal analyst who reasserted that an individual has a right to defend himself inside his home.

Legal analyst Steve Clark said people have “a heightened right to self-defense if someone comes into your home rather than if you are outside your home. The law respects the sanctity of the home to a degree where you are allowed to use deadly force where elsewhere you wouldn’t.”

Thank goodness this filmmaker had the money to hire good legal council. If the average citizen had done almost precisely the same thing, he or she would have to fight to prove that defending his life and that of his family and property was justified.

The attorney on the case won’t allow the filmmaker to make any comment or potentially incriminate himself by admitting he pulled the trigger.

The suspected intruder is a felon with a history of violence. Marcus Polk, 45, had a prior restraining order against him after making credible threats of violence against the filmmaker and his family. He also threatened a former landlord after refusing to move out.

While the filmmaker does have prior felonies on his record, the use of deadly force in this case is not being contested upon that basis because the District Attorney acknowledges that being a felon does not preclude a person from using deadly force to defend himself.

For an already tumultuous event like being forced to defend your life from a violent intruder, we can see how complicated and expensive the legal process in San Francisco can be. Also, the presumption of innocence until proven guilty does not seem to be the general mentality of San Francisco law enforcement and investigation.

Let’s just hope that their laws and ways of doing business don’t travel too far outside of their jurisdiction.

postheadericon Would-Be Assailant Shot By Homeowner — Police Puzzled As To Why He Refused Medical Treatment, Bled To Death

SPOKANE VALLEY, WASHINGTON — A homeowner out on the waterfront heard a rapping, rapping on his front door. Wisely, he decided to arm up before investigating. It was night time and his house was near the Centennial trail that follows the Spokane River. This, according to neighbors, made these properties more vulnerable to home invasions and robberies in the past.

The decision to arm up before investigating turned out to be a necessity. According to KXLY 4 Spokane News, the homeowner eventually saw a man outside his door and told him to leave. After several moments, the man charged the homeowner and he was forced to defend himself.

He did arm himself prior to answering the door, when he did go outside on the porch, he initially didn’t see anybody, but then noticed a male in his yard,” said Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputy Mark Gregory.

He fired one shot and the suspect fled outside the property. When police arrived, they say the man who was shot was extremely uncooperative with officers’ attempts to detain and get him treatment.

“The deputies continually tried to calm him (the suspect) down and they were able to detain him and get medics in there, but the male continued to be uncooperative,” said Gregory.

According to police, the suspect was shot through his femoral artery. By refusing prompt medical aid, he bled to death before he could be taken to a hospital.

The homeowner was cooperative with the investigation and is not currently being charged with any crime. The Spokane County Prosecutor will make the final determination.

We could view this as just another law-abiding citizen choosing to defend himself rather than be a victim. A very real scenario played out that night. A man who was probably less than completely sound of mind decided to charge a homeowner. This would have ended in a potentially very violent confrontation where the homeowner’s own life and well-being were put at risk.

Thankfully, the homeowner was wise enough to be prepared.
