Autistic 5th-Grader Handcuffed, Arrested for Playing With ‘Imaginary Gun’ at School

After the shooting in a Parkland, Florida high school earlier this year, the entire nation is on edge and is taking steps to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Because authorities ignored the shooter’s threats, and essentially allowed the massacre to take place, police are being extra cautious now to ensure this does not happen again.

Since that fateful day, school children across the country have been arrested for threatening behavior. Now, however, a case out of Texas has many wondering if this reaction to fear is going to far as a 5th grade autistic student was arrested for “brandishing an imaginary rifle.”

On Monday, 12-year-old David Sims, a 5th grader in Conroe Independent School District’s Bozman Intermediate school, was handcuffed, hauled away and charged with a crime for motioning his hands like he had a gun.

The boy’s actions apparently threatened his art teacher who then called the police.

“She (CISD Police Officer) just put handcuffs on me and told me I need to go with her,” David told Fox 26.

“They just said, ‘We don’t tolerate that. We take it as a threat.’ A threat? He didn’t threaten anyone. He didn’t do anything but play,” said Amy Sims, David’s mother.

Sims explained that she was never notified of her son’s arrest until after he’d been booked. Sims noted that like many kids with autism, her son doesn’t understand that playing make believe guns on campus has become inappropriate behavior.

“Being put in handcuffs, not knowing what he did wrong, I could have had a talk with him and told him look, I know you like to play guns, but you can’t do it in school,” said Amy Sims.

Indeed, that is all that should have happened. However, this little boy is now facing criminal charges instead.

David was held for hours at the juvenile detention center on Monday wondering what it was that he did wrong.

According to Montgomery County Attorney, J.D. Lambright, the autistic child allegedly made a threat along with the make believe rifle. However, his mother disagrees.

Lambright told Fox 26 that because of David’s mental disability, he may be able to beat the charges.

“We want to get them turned around and on the right path,” Lambright said, implying that playing with an imaginary gun is how kids apparently get led astray.

Lambright explained that police are responding to similar incidents all across the district.

“Right after the Florida incident we were getting two a day, three a day and it wasn’t isolated to any particular school. We have six school districts in Montgomery County and they were coming in across the County,” said Lambright.

Although the school would not comment on this specific case, they did release a statement saying, “Situations involving students with special needs are responded to with consideration for each unique need.”

David’s mother believes that her son is certainly getting this special treatment, however, she calls it the discriminatory kind.

“Because he’s disabled, they automatically think he’s got something mental, so he might go shoot up a school,” said Amy Sims.

As for David, he will not be allowed back at the school and he must attend an alternative disciplinary school for the rest of the year.

Sadly, as schools across the country rely more and more on police to force student compliance, instead of training and common sense, this scenario becomes more common.

Last year, the Free Thought Project reported on 6-year-old Nicholas, who is diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and disruptive mood dysregulation disorder. Nicholas was kidnapped from his elementary school by police and imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital.

He was held, including multiple stints in a ‘seclusion room,’ for three days at River Point Behavioral Health — for a temper tantrum at school. 

If a 6-year-old boy was taken by police from a school and locked in an isolation room in the 90’s, you can rest assured that this would not fly. The same goes for a 12-year-old boy with autism getting arrested and charged with a crime for an imaginary gun. Now, however, police force as a reaction to childhood problems has become the go-to approach in the land of the free.

CNN Deeply Concerned by ‘Trump Playing to His Base On Multiple Fronts’

CNN
Anderson Cooper 360
April 4, 2018
9:31:57 PM Eastern [3 minutes 4 seconds]

[On screen headline: Pres. Trump Playing to His Base on Multiple Fronts]

ANDERSON COOPER: President Trump’s tweets over the past few days have taken aim at many targets, Amazon, the media, former President Obama to name just a few. But in a very real sense, he’s playing to a single audience, his political base. More from our Randi Kaye tonight.

[Cuts to video]

DONALD TRUMP: We have retailers all over the United States who are going out of business.

RANDI KAYE: If the President is trying to impress his base, comments like that may do the trick. No doubt Trump has a personal beef with Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who also owns The Washington Post. But Trump, in going after Amazon, is also defending brick and mortar retailers, which he says are getting squeezed.

TRUMP: You look at some of these small towns where they had a beautiful main street with stores. The stores are all gone.

KAYE: Those retailers in many cases, mom and pop shops, part of what Donald Trump sees as his base. His effort to keep his supporters in middle America and elsewhere happy may explain some of his recent rhetoric about tariffs too, sounding more like he did during the campaign.

TRUMP: China is upset because of the way Donald Trump is talking about trade with China. They’re ripping us off, folks. It’s time.

KAYE: Trump’s move to slap tariffs on China was a nod to his base. But less than 24 hours after the White House unveiled a list of Chinese imports they plan to target for unfair trade practices, China slapped its own tariffs on the United States, targeting agriculture exports from U.S. Farm belt states like soybean, corn, wheat, and beef. Now farmers who largely supported Trump could get hurt. Still, Trump’s top economic adviser hinted that in the end, there may be no tariffs at all.

LARRY KUDLOW: I doubt if there will be any concrete actions for several months. We’ll see how that plays out. Nothing concrete has actually happened. These are proposals.

KAYE: And what about immigration? After a tough-talking campaign and deciding to end the DACA program last year, the President started to sound as if he were willing to cross the aisle on immigration issues. In January, even calling for a bipartisan, quote, “bill of love to protect dreamers.” The hundreds of thousands of young people brought here illegally. But now once again is taking a harder stance.

The president on a tear about weak laws and porous borders, stoking fears for the upcoming midterms like he did during the campaign. In a tweet on Sunday, the President announced “no more DACA deal.”

SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS: The President has been very clear, put multiple proposals on the table to fix the problem, and Democrats have not been willing to take a deal that was actually a really good deal and went much further than the previous administration.

KAYE: And those National Guard troops the President plans to send to help shore up the southern border with Mexico? Border security is an issue that won him lots of support during the campaign, and he’s playing to that base again.

KIRSTJEN NIELSEN: It will be strong. It will be as many as is needed to fill the gaps.

KAYE: Promises in the year 2018 that sound a lot like 2016. Randi Kaye, CNN, New York.

Interview: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong’s Greg Ormont talks new album ‘Pizazz’ and how the band puts the ‘Fun in Funk’

The first thing most people may notice about funk-infused jamband Pigeons Playing Ping Pong is their catchy, alliterative name. But for those so compelled to go see the up and coming four-piece, what becomes immediately evident is the band’s tireless work ethic and ability to enthrall and engage their audience, affectionately referred to as “The Flock.”

Those aspects of PPPP–their work ethic and fan engagement–are also evident with their new album, the aptly named Pizazz (read our review of the album here), produced by Steve Wright at Wright Ways studio in the band’s hometown of Baltimore. Recently, AXS had a chance to speak with lead singer and guitarist Greg Ormont about PPPP’s new album. “We wanted to lead with a fun message that sums us up to an extent,” Greg said of Pizazz. “We wanted to step with our best foot forward and the leading track ‘Fun in Funk’ is really what we’re all about.”

When we caught up with Greg he was busy getting ready for the tour as well as working on the band’s own festival, Domefest. But Greg was excited to talk about Pizazz and the reception it is receiving. 

“I’m so happy with Pizazz,” Ormont said. “Fortunately it’s been picked up by a lot of radio stations. We’ve been hearing ourselves on [SiriusXM’s] JamOn, which has been a dream for us. Whenever we’re played on JamOn we’ll get a slew of text messages from family and friends who are all stoked about it. It’s also our first album with our new drummer Alex, who’s been with us for three years. So it’s been a long time coming. He really pushed us to be our best selves and I’m beyond thrilled with how it came out. I think it packs a punch. I think it’s tight and crisp but still breathes when it needs to breathe musically. I think that each album has been better than the last. We set a new bar with Pizazz, which is great.”

Besides setting a new bar musically on Pizazz, PPPP also ticked off another milestone by conducting their first–and very successful–Kickstarter campaign. And as usual, The Flock came out in droves to support the band. 

“One thing that really inspired us this go around was the fact that we did a Kickstarter for the first time,” Ormont said. “There was an amazing response to the Kickstarter. We exceeded our goal before the deadline approached and that gave us a lot of inspiration but also a good amount of pressure. We wanted to make sure that if these people were going to go out of their way to support the album that we had better come with a great product and make sure they enjoy all their gifts. It was a really fun experience. I got to meet some fans and give vocal lessons to some Kickstarter rewards members. It added a personal touch for The Flock and so this album was really for The Flock and funded by The Flock, and I think that really gave us a little more reason to knock it out of the park.”

One of the reasons Pigeons was able to “knock it out of the park” on Pizazz was their very focused and tireless work ethic. “More often than not, our songwriting comes from group collaboration,” Ormont said. “We practice nearly every week working on our improv just as a jamband in general. If we build ourselves a live pocket that I’m starting to hear vocals over, I’ll start singing ideas over our newfound parts. We record our practices, especially the good ideas, and then go back and listen to them to see what sounds good. So we record our ideas and listen back to them to see if it’s something worth fleshing out. Just the other day at sound check, we record our sound checks too, we stumbled upon a pretty cool pocket and I started singing some kind of reggae vocals over it. So we try to have it be very open, very collaborative. There’s sort of this no bad idea mentality so that people feel comfortable pitching crazy musical ideas.”

Of course, the band’s work ethic is evident in their live shows. The band is renowned for their high energy but also their attention to detail. Pigeons’ last NYE show saw the band pay tribute to Disney’s beloved musical canon, and PPPP had everything dialed in from their costumes to the countdown. 

“On New Year’s this past year we did a Disney theme, which was so much fun,” Ormot said. “We all dressed as Mickey Mouse and played a bunch of classics dating back to ‘When You Wish Upon a Star’ all the way up to “Hakuna Matata” and “Moana” songs from more current Disney times. We also performed a live musical countdown as we went down to midnight and we literally practiced those countdowns at home. We would set up fake clocks that countdown to midnight and really try to nail it. Apparently, some friends were streaming at home on our Facebook page or our fan Facebook page ‘The Flock’ and they said we hit midnight right on the second. Which is great to know because in the good ol’ days people would just watch the show and they wouldn’t pull out their watches because they couldn’t see them to see if we got midnight right on the dot. But nowadays, people are streaming it on Facebook live and sitting on their couch with nothing to do but wait for us to hit it at midnight, or troll us on it. Fortunately, we hit it this year.”

While Pigeons Playing Ping Pong pull out all the stops for special shows like Halloween or NYE, the band treats every show with the same passion and work ethic that they would put into a holiday show. And for their current tour, PPPP has also stepped up their touring apparatus to ensure that more time and energy can be channeled into their live shows.

“This particular run we will be in a BandWagon, which is basically just an RV designed for bands,” Ormont revealed. “That gives us the luxury of having a driver who can take us from place to place overnight. And when that happens we all get more sleep, which makes the shows better. We love playing music and always have. We used to play college parties in sweaty basements, and they would rage. Whether we’re playing a small bar or nowadays some bigger theatres, we’ve always treated them like we’re playing Madison Square Garden. That’s kind of been our mantra. And when you have that mentality, every night of tour is fun and every show gives you a good feeling. So I try not to handpick my upcoming highlights but treat every show like it’s MSG and it’s the most important show we’re ever gonna play. We give it everything we have. Fortunately, that makes life pretty fun.”

While Greg and Pigeons like to treat every show the same, Ormont did reveal that the band was pretty excited about returning to Colorado–where they have established a nest for their western Flock–to play the Ogden Theatre in Denver on March 10. “We always love coming to Colorado,” Greg said. “We were there last year for our ‘Flocktoberfest’ outdoor street party in Boulder. That was a huge success and it means a lot that we decided to do Flocktoberfest out west because we usually do that closer to home and we wanted to give Colorado some lovin’. We also played The Ogden with Dopapod last year and we were really blown away by The Ogden. It’s a really cool vibe. We love Denver, our manager lives in Denver, and Colorado always just feels like a festival instead of a city tour. So I’m ready to hang with our mountain flock and get down and dirty like Colorado knows how to do so well.”

Besides the Ogden show, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong will also tour throughout April and into May including multiple night runs at Port City Music Hall in Portland, Maine and Brooklyn Bowl in New York City. Click here to browse AXS for tickets to select Pigeons Playing Ping Pong dates.

Huffington Post Indulges Obama’s Dream of Playing for Spurs and Trump-Hating Coach

Basketball-loving Barack Obama has an eye for shooting hoops that rivals the awful vision of Mr. Magoo. But according to The Huffington Post, the former president with a vivid imagination and an ego the size of Texas, would choose to play for the San Antonio Spurs … if only he was an NBA all-star free agent.

Will the delusions of grandeur never end for the former president? During a White House Easter celebration, Obama once picked up the rock and made a very public display of a dreadful 2-for-22 shooting embarrassment! (next time try layups!) Kahron Campbell, then 10, was there that day, and said, “He couldn’t make one. I had to help him out.” (Spoiler alert: The Huffington Post did not mention Obama’s poor basketball abilities.)

About that Spurs’ contract, “Mr. Basketball,” dream on, but don’t quit your day job!

The Post’s Ron Dicker wrote:

“At an MIT Sports Analytics Conference in Boston, Obama said that as a player he would seek out the five-time champion Spurs because they satisfy his checklist for ideal organizations.”

Obama said of the team he invited to the White House to celebrate a past NBA championship, “They’re smart, they’re well-run, they’re focused on team,” he said. The president who trashed police officers and used the IRS to punish his political enemies, said the Spurs “treat everybody in the organization with respect, and that is the kind of organization that I want to be a part of.the last 15 years in basketball, San Antonio would be a great example of that.” And you are not, sir.

Obama’s track record of organizational success includes his “Department of Injustice” and skipping intelligence meetings. Maybe he was too busy watching college basketball to prep for his March Madness bracket? He needed to look good for those appearances on ESPN to reveal his tournament picks! He did succeed at leaving Americans behind in Benghazi, arming Mexican drug cartels and rewarding solar power companies on the brink of going belly-up. But, hey, Obama loves hoops and he’s The Huffington Post’s main man! If he wants to dream, let him dream big.

If Obama played for the Spurs, he’d feel right at home with a head coach, Greg Popovich, who rips on Republicans. Coach Pop branded President Donald Trump as a “soulless coward,” and Dicker calls him a “socially conscious fellow.”

Told of Obama’s interest in playing for his team, Popovich joked that he heard Obama has done some things that “aren’t very good” and he’d do a background check on him. What? Vetting a Democrat? A novel idea to The Huffington Post and other left-stream media.

Fear Mongering Lemon: We’re All ‘Playing the Odds’ Before We’re Shot

CNN Tonight
February 14, 2018
10:00:27 PM Eastern [4 minutes 3 seconds]

DON LEMON: This is CNN Tonight. I’m Don Lemon. Thanks for joining us. And I want to welcome our viewers in the United States and around the world. A very troubled world tonight. Our breaking news, 17 people shot to death today at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland, Florida. Five people hospitalized, life-threatening condition. Ten more in non-life-threatening condition. The suspect, a 19-year-old — 19 years old, a former student — in custody. And sources say he is talking to investigators. He had been expelled.

Law enforcement sources say the weapon used to kill those 17 people was an AR-15 style firearm. He had a gas mask and smoke grenades and pulled the fire alarm, just to lure out more victims. Sources also saying that he tried to mix into the crowd, the crowd of students, to try to escape. Those are the facts right there. But they don’t even begin to tell the full story here, the entire story.

The story is this. This is a sickness that has infected the country. Unchecked and unfettered gun violence. Today, 17 lives are over. 17 families are torn apart. Parents who sent their kids to school this morning, imagine that, many people send their kids to school. Just like they’ve done every other day for years. They trusted their kids would be safe. Teachers went to work this morning, trusted that they would be safe in their space, in their work environment. The way we all should be safe in our work environments, every day, everywhere in our schools. Our churches, our offices at concerts, at nightclubs.

Do you feel safe tonight? There’s another fact that we need to face. Every single one of us is just playing the odds at this point. The odds that in a country of 325 million souls that we won’t be the ones who get hit by the next bullets that start flying. We won’t be the one that gets that phone call about someone you love who did. Your son, your daughter, your brother, your sister, your spouse, or your parent, even a friend. Anyone you know. The phone call that changes your life. But with every deadly shooting in this country, the odds get worse and worse and worse.

Are you really willing to keep playing those odds? Your life is too precious for that. The lives of our loved ones are too precious. The lives of the people in our cities and towns are too precious. Have we forgotten that life is a gift?

It’s a disgrace that this is still happening after Sandy Hook, Columbine, Virginia Tech, Emanuel AME Church, Pulse nightclub shooting, Las Vegas, the list goes on and on and on. This is what we are right now. But is this really who we want to be? A country where anybody, at any time, could be shot to death. And then when a bunch of people are killed and lives are shattered, we are sad and maybe angry, and then we forget, and we move on, until the next time. With the tragedy remaining in the headlines for even a shorter time than it did before.

So just forget politics here. This is about lives. The lives of all Americans. We need to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. Everyone agrees with that. People who oppose gun control will say, today is not the day to talk about it. And you know what, they are absolutely right. Because the day to talk about it was weeks, months, years, or decades ago. And yes, of course, we also need to make mental health a priority in this country. But guess what, we can do both. We can do both of those things at the same time. If we don’t, we have no one to blame but ourselves.

This is America, people. Don’t forget that. I know that we are better than this. So let’s discuss all of it. The facts and the story behind all of it.

Proposed Illinois law would ban kids under 12 from playing tackle football

A proposed Illinois law unveiled Thursday would ban kids under the age of 12 from playing tackle football.

Named the Dave Duerson Act for the former Chicago Bear, it would reportedly ban anyone under the age of 12 from playing tackle football in organized youth sports.

The proposed legislation is sponsored by State Rep. Carole Sente. If passed, Sente said Illinois would likely be the first state with such restrictions.

Duerson was a member of the Bears 85 Super Bowl team and a successful businessman after retiring from football. After his suicide in 2011, his family discovered many of his problems may have been caused by CTE, a brain illness caused repeated head trauma and concussions suffered while playing football.

Now, his family is behind an effort to keep young kids from hitting each other in tackle football.

“We have an obligation to protect children’s futures, especially when we know how brain trauma can be prevented,” said Duerson’s son, Tregg Duerson.

“Study after study is showing that starting tackle football before twelve leads to greater neurological impairment later in life,” said Dr. Chris Nowinski from the Concussion Legacy Foundation.

Former Chicago Bear and Northwestern football star Mike Adamle believes he is suffering from the symptoms of CTE. He said if he could do it over, he’s not sure he would have played football.

“Given what we know today and if I had to do it over again, certainly I would have not done something that would have put me in harm’s way,” said Adamle.

News that the bill would be announced has already drawn both praise and criticism from the parents of young athletes who feel like it’s a government overstep.

“Public safety issues that have severe health implications, I think, the government does play a role, whether that’s car seats or seat belts or smoking I think that the data at this point, for me, while it’s not 100 percent, it’s convincing,” said State Rep. Carol Sente, D-Vernon Hills.

“Some parents are not comfortable having kids play football and that’s OK, but many parents are and we want the parents to make that decision based off of the information that they have, not an Illinois law,” said Mike Assaad, who runs the youth football program in Elmhurst.

Sente said the bill has officially received a number and the next step will be for it to head to a hearing.

Trump is not playing 3-D chess: Why I am absolutely certain

Trump playing 3D chess

    

The latest viral hashtag in US politics, #ReleaseTheMemo, has been ripping through conservative social media circles like wildfire sparked by comments from Capitol Hill Republicans and conservative mainstream media pundits like Sean Hannity about FISA surveillance of the 2016 Trump campaign.

Predictably, this has consumed online conservative discourse today, making me wish I’d saved my plea for Trump supporters to oppose this administration’s new Syria strategy for another time when it wouldn’t get lost in the shuffle. Even more predictably, the viral hashtag has caused Democrats to start spouting Russia conspiracy theories citing neocon-operated websites as evidence.

US partisan dynamics are such a pain in the ass.

And of course it’s extremely important to let the public know if America’s surveillance system is being abused in yet another way we didn’t already know about, but as Glenn Greenwald and Jon Schwartz rightly point out in an article that’s just been published by The Intercept, Republicans already have an array of options to make the memo and all its supporting documents public. What then is the need for this public crusade? And so close to a looming government shutdown? It sure looks like they’re using rank-and-file Republicans as pawns in some kind of political game.

Speaking of pawns, do you know what happens when you publicly point out that President Trump has the authority to declassify the memo and all documents supporting its conclusions? His supporters start babbling about playing chess, saying what looks like a blatant inconsistency is actually Trump being strategic and smart.

I want to talk about this, because it happens every time. Whenever I point out that Trump’s behavior doesn’t line up with what his base is saying about him, I get a bunch of his supporters telling me it’s because he’s actually outmaneuvering the establishment/deep state/swamp in a game of 3-D/4-D/57-D chess, and that I need to have faith. It’s a popular meme.

How perfect is that, though? Could you ask for a more perfect narrative to feed the masses than the idea that every time their leader appears to be doing something shady, he’s actually making a brilliant move that we lowly plebeians cannot hope to understand? He can march the US government step-for-step in the same direction Obama was day after day, and his supporters will gaslight themselves into believing that he’s actually done something ingenious.

Do you know why I am absolutely certain that this popular narrative is pure bullshit? Because Obama supporters were all saying the exact same thing about him at the beginning of his administration.

In the above clip (which I’ll hyperlink here in case anyone republishes this article without the embedded stuff), Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks is seen on MSNBC alongside Glenn Greenwald describing his outrage at the way Obama kept taking his base for granted in favor of capitulations to establishment interests, slamming the way his supporters initially defended that behavior as the president “playing three-dimensional chess” before getting crushed in the midterms due to alienated voters. I really want to remind everyone of this, so let me type up a quick transcript of this behavior for folks who can’t listen to audio right now:

“Because you remember what they told us: Obama’s a genius! I couldn’t possibly understand his genius – he’s playing three-dimensional chess! Well what part of three-dimensional chess do you give away your queen, your knight, your bishop, and the House of Representatives? No! They were wrong, we were right. It’s time to fight.”

Here’s a link to the full interview for context and background for those dutiful skeptics out there:

It’s important to reclaim these memories from news churn-induced amnesia, because we are seeing the exact same toxic psyop being recycled in a “Hope and Change” redux repackaged for a conservative audience. You’re not getting your hope and change from this president either, America.

MAGA friends, do you remember your frustration at the blindness of Obama supporters to the fact that their president wasn’t helping them or giving them the change they voted for, and was in fact merely extending Bush’s legacy? I know I interacted with many Republicans who felt that way at the time. Well guess what? They’re pulling the same exact wool over your eyes as this president continues and advances the same establishment agendas as his predecessor.

It’s time for Americans to abandon this pattern of abuse, like a battered wife coming back after the umpteenth time because he promised for the umpteenth time he’ll change. He’s not going to change, America. Lucy’s never going to let Charlie Brown kick that football. You need to start ignoring the stories and watching their actions.

And I mean their real, visible actions. A lot of Trump supporters are being so forgiving of the visible signs of establishment loyalism because there are rumors circulating that he’s about to bring down a vast network of pedophiles who are interwoven into the deep state/DC swamp, but again, how convenient is that? It looks exactly like Trump is advancing the same rampant corporatism and globalist warmongering agendas as his predecessors, but there’s secret, invisible evidence about to be revealed any minute now that he’s actually the populist hero you voted for. Trust Big Brother: he’s got secret, invisible heroism as well as brilliant 3-D chess moves you can’t possibly hope to understand.

If you want to remain open to the possibility of facts and evidence proving me wrong, by all means be my guest, but don’t trust in blind faith like Obama’s supporters did. Insist on facts and evidence. If you ignore the stories and look at the actions, you’ll see a very different presidency than either mainstream Republicans or mainstream Democrats want you to see.

Man bleeds out, reportedly too busy to notice fatal cut while playing Star Wars VR game

The body of the 44-year-old was discovered in his apartment, police said in a statement on Friday. The man was playing the game while wearing a VR headset and apparently tripped and fell on a glass coffee table, breaking it. The blood loss he suffered from the head wound was fatal, the preliminary investigation showed.

According to Lenta.ru news website, the man’s mother found the dead gamer on Thursday. A source in law enforcement told the website that the medical examiner believes the man’s life could have been saved if he hadn’t continued playing the game and instead sought medical attention.

The source said the game that proved to be good enough to die for was from the Star Wars franchise, but would not say which. There are several VR and AR titles from the space saga currently available, both licensed by Disney and inspired by Star Wars.
