A father is murdered and San Diego Sheriff’s Homicide Detectives suspect the 22-year-old son. Just before 10:00 last night deputies were called to a Spring Valley home because of a domestic disturbance. The Sheriff office says that the deputies found the father with a stab wound and the son was on the run … Deputies began their hunt. After about an hour someone was taken into custody, however at this time there is no confirmation yet that he is the son or another suspect. What I do have confirmed is that the man in custody is thought to be involved somehow. Sheriff’s Homicide Detectives will send out more info later.

This morning at 8:30 the arraignment for the man accused of kidnapping and Sexually assaulting a woman walking home in the San Diego beach community of Ocean Beach will happen.

North Korea Threatens San Diego In Propaganda Video

[youtube:http://youtu.be/PUP8T7Qar88%5D

In a North Korean propaganda video the upscale San Diego neighborhood of Point Loma is mentioned by name.

Helen Haekyung Kim Korean Language & Studies Professor at San Diego State University says

“This video said that N. Korea would attack 4 areas and one of them was Point Loma in California. It’s North Korean video telling us that North Korea will launch missiles targeting at Washing D.C, Colorado Springs, Point Loma in California and Hawaii.”

The Demilitarized Zone in Panmunjom, North Korea

I dont think anyone is taking this seriously.

Sounds to me like North Korea has discovered google and typed in the words U.S. Military.

But it is nice to make the list.
