Page 14 POST-GAZETTE, MAY 8, 2015 News Briefs (Continued from Page 1) since the election of Presi- dent Obama who supports this NSA activity. Government is our busi- ness. We must run it or it will surely run us. We are a democratic republic with a Constitution to guide us. If I were in Congress today, I would not be re-authorizing the NSA spying program for another three years as Bolton supports. I do not consider Snowden a traitor for going public with information on the NSA. He did all of us and our demo- cratic republic a service. Perhaps, someday, I will trust our federal govern- ment again, but as for now I call it a necessary evil. More Broken Windows 101 The NY Post recently re- ported that the NYPD found a stolen Baikal pistol on a Brooklyn man after stopping him for riding his bike on the sidewalk, exactly the kind of quality of life enforcement NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton says is vital in stem- ming larger crimes. The City Council wants to decrimi- nalize these so-called minor offenses. Kudos to the MTA in NY New York City's version of the MBTA, the Metropolitan Transit Authority, recently banned all religious and political ads from the tran- sit system. Liberals are all bent out of shape over this action and talking about free speech under attack. However, when you read the whole story, you'll hope- fully side with the transit authorities in the Big Apple. On April 21St a Manhattan federal judge ruled that the MTA had to run a bus ad from the American Freedom Defense Initiative, which had sued the transit system in court arguing freedom of speech. A new policy was passed that stated only paid com- mercial advertising, public service announcements and government messages would be allowed. The ad in question fea- tured a Muslim man masked like a jihadist and the Hamas quote, "Killing Jews is V orship that draws us closer to Allah." Below the quote reads, "That's His Jihad. What's yours?" Of course the usual liberal suspects start talking about the U.S. Constitution and free speech. Just because there actual quotes, doesn't mean the ads are hateful. They also say they want to have a conversation. How can you do this after saying killing Jews is a form of wor- ship? This kind of speech sounds like it came off the pages of "Mein Kampf." Most liberals are so far gone they probably think the moonbat is the official mam- mal of the Empire State. The new ad policy passed the board 9-2 and one of the two votes came from Ira Greenberg who stated, "What makes us civilized is that we do not react to these uncivi- lized ads." Fans of Mark Levin on WRKO Radio know what he calls folks like Ira Greenberg, right? It takes courage to react to uncivilized actions, because today in our political correct- ness we defend no values. We say anything goes, I guess until it goes too far, but maybe not even then. The America I was born into is dying today and not enough of us are defending it. Petraeus Gets Wrist Slap Former CIA Director and retired General David Petraeus recently left fed- eral court after being sen- tenced to two years' proba- tion and fined $100,000 for giving classified material to his biographer and mistress. I guess we've lowered the bar on this kind of crime now and it might lead to unat- tended consequences like more people doing the same. Wrist-slapping sets a bad precedence, doesn't it? Martin O'Malley's Presidential Bid Up in Smoke Martin O'Malley's presi- dential campaign appears to have been pretty much damaged in the wake of the recent violence and ar- son in the City of Baltimore. This city is where O'Malley served as mayor and Mary- land is where he served as governor. Not Baltimore's finest hour and nothing for which O'Malley can count as his great success while serv- ing both his city and state. Even if Hilary stumbles in her presidential coronation, his stock has dropped. Great things may have been hap- pening in Baltimore, but it all went up in smoke and fire.

The 6'-2", 320 pound Brown recorded 6.5 sacks and 72 tackles for the Longhorns during the 2014 college cam- paign, which garnered him high praise. Brown was a finalist for the Nagurski Trophy, emblematic of the best defensive player in the nation. With the addition of Brown, the Patriots filled a clear area of need in the heart of their defensive front. He is expected to fill the void left by Vince Wilfork, and similar to Wilfork during the 2004 draft, Brown slid down the draft board surprising many ana- lysts, who did not be- lieve he would be avail- able when the Patriots made their selection. With their second pick, 64th overall, the team snatched Safety Jordan Richards out of Stanford University. Richards earned the nickname "Coach Richards" by his teammates and was named to the Pac-12 All- Academic first team. With the rest of the league look- ing for safeties more in the cornerback mold, the Patriots selection of Richards was met with some incredu- lity. Most draft analyst had Richards being selected in the later rounds. The pick demonstrates a desire by Coach Belichick and the Patriots to have that throw- back safety/linebacker pa- trolling the secondary. LEGAL NOTICE The teams next two picks were used on upgrading the defensive front seven add- ing Oklahoma defensive end Geneo Grissom and Arkan- sas' Trey Flowers. The addi- tions' of Grissom and Flowers Malcolm Brown, #90. should beef up the Patriots pass rush as both players were disruptive forces on the field for their respective college programs. Grissom, who also played a little tight end, had a memorable 2013 Sugar Bowl versus the Alabama Crimson Tide in which he recorded 2.5 sacks and recovered two fumbles, one of which he returned for a touchdown. In 2014, Flowers tallied 68 tackles and added 6 sacks to bring his Arkansas career sack total to 18. In the fourth round, the team selected Florida State offensive lineman Tre' Jack- son. The 6'-4", 330-pound Jackson was primarily a guard and now rejoins his former teammate Bryan Stork -- who was drafted in last year's draft -- in a reunion of what was consid- ered one of the best lines in college football in 2013. Continuing to upgrade the offensive line, the Patriots next pick was Georgia Tech's Shaq Mason. Mason was named to the All-American first team his senior year at Georgia. The Patriots selected Navy long snapper Joe Cardona in the fifth round, but his avail- ability is in question as he is scheduled to serve a post as surface warfare officer follow- ing graduation. In the sixth round, the team took line- backer Matthew Wells out of Mississippi State and tight end A.J. Derby of Arkansas. With their final two picks, Cornerback Darryl Roberts of Mar- shall and Alabama line- backer Xzavier Dick- son got the call. On paper, the Patriots had an outstanding draft, select- ing in key areas of need, but that is in no way an indica- tion of a successful draft and Head Coach Bill Belichick knows this to be true. "It will be a big adjustment for every rookie. Welcome to the NFL ... they'll get a big dose of New England Patri- ots football ... the strong will survive. The other ones will fall off. And we'll keep going." Next up are OTAs (Organized team activities) beginning on May 26th. The 2015 season is a mere four months away.
