The government is going to seize retirement accounts!


The National Deficit, along with the lack of demand for Treasury Bonds, leaves the
government with no other option! And what you don’t know can hurt you!

Goldworth Financial first uncovered the early blueprint of our government’s plot to seize retirement accounts in early 2009. Since that time, we have come up with 9 Basic Questions that people have about this issue:

1. Who’s behind the plot to confiscate retirement accounts?
The government takeover of private retirement accounts is a concept first drawn up by Teresa Ghilarducci, who was funded by the White House, the Ford Foundation, and the Rockefeller Foundation. President Obama’s 2008 presidential run proposed the “Automatic IRA,” which has now evolved into Ghilarducci’s “Guarantee Retirement Accounts (GRA’s)” concept.

2. Why does the Government want to seize Private Retirement accounts?
They need it! China and other buyers of US Treasury (our debt) Bonds have stopped buying. The Federal Reserve reports that it is now forced to fill China’s role, and is buying over 61% of our Treasury Bonds.

3. Have there been any public hearings? If so, who’s involved?
There have been numerous hearings between the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Labor and Treasury Departments. The topic discussed is known as the “Lifetime Income Option-Annuity Income Stream.” Here is the role that each is playing:

The role of the Labor Department-To draw up the guidelines for the Labor (workers) force to direct their pay into Guaranteed Retirement Accounts (GRA’s).
The role of the Internal Revenue Service
To write the laws that will tax/penalize you, if you don’t comply.
The role of the Treasury Department- They have Treasury Bonds/U.S. Debt they need to sell!
4. What workers’ unions are in favor of Nationalized Retirement Accounts?
Believe it or not, the SEIC, CIO & AFL are all in favor! The proposal for this is being discussed as “Re-Imagining pensions.” These workers’ unions are all in favor of “Universal Secure and Adequate (USA)” retirement for all.

John Adler, the Retirement Security Campaign Director of the SEIU, said: “We really don’t favor individual accounts as the way to go.” He went on to say: “Instead, we favor a pooled investment approach.”

John Adler also mentioned Teresa Ghirladucci’s Guarantee Retirement Accounts (GRA). Adler said, “Ghirladucci’s recent proposal of state-sponsored plans is worthy of consideration.”

5. Okay, so unions are in favor of de-privatizing retirement accounts. But government can’t just take our money, can they?
Yes! Unfortunately, they can! Here’s a recent snapshot of recent headlines in leading newspapers:

May 16th, 2011-Washington Post reported: “Treasury to Tap Pensions to Fund Government.”

January 17th, 2012-Reuters reported: “The Treasury Dips Further into Pension to Avoid Debt Limit.”

April 12 th, 2012-NY Post reported: “Feds Eye Retirement-Fund Tax to Cut $16 Trillion-plus Deficit”

And of course – August 16th, 2001-CNN reported : “Government Dipping into Social Security.”

If Government “borrows” money they have NO Intention of paying back, wouldn’t you call that stealing/confiscation?

6. Is Obama involved in the plot to seize retirement accounts, and if so, how will they do it?
Proof can be found in the Obama Administration’s 256-page FY 2013 Budget Proposal, the revival of his 2008 presidential run’s “Automatic IRA.” It has now evolved into two proposals: Secure Choice Pension and Government Retirement Accounts (GRA’s).

Some of the proposed “features” are:

Government will automatically deduct 5%-6% out of your earnings. Those funds will be deposited into a pooled GRA.

The current tax deduction will be eliminated, and replaced with a tax credit.

Instead of receiving a tax refund check, part or ALL will automatically be placed into a pooled GRA.

Worker’s un-used vacation pay will automatically be converted to income, which will be deposited into a pooled GRA.

The funds in your current retirement account will be converted to “longevity annuities,” which typically don’t start making income payments until the investor is well into retirement, 82-85 years old.

Guaranteed Retirement Accounts (GRA’s) will be administered by the Social Security Administration.

Much like S.S. Accounts, the uncollected equity will become the property of the Government, once the individual dies.

7. Okay, Government will turn my Retirement Account into a GRA, which will function as “longevity annuities.” But what’s in the annuity, and what kind of returns will I get?

According to Teresa Ghirladucci, the originator of GRA’s, the estimated return on your money will be 3%. It will NOT keep up with government-reported inflation, let alone TRUE/REAL Inflation.

The Government-run annuity will contain U.S. Treasury Bonds, Treasury Notes and Treasury Bills- everything China no longer buys.

The Treasury Department is so desperate to find new buyers, they recently announced that “taxpayers will now have another savings option-the ability to use their refunds to purchase U.S Savings Bonds without having to open an account with the Treasury; even if the tax payer doesn’t have a bank account.”

Citigroup analyst Hans Lorenzen said: “U.S regulators are essentially forcing banks to buy up government debt-While that helps Government Issue more and more debt, the strategy could ultimately explode if the government isn’t able to make the bond payment, leaving the holders of the bonds with toxic debt.”

Yes, through GRA’s, you will be holding our government’s toxic debt!

8. What States, Senate Bills and politicians are in favor of this new Socialistic program?

H.R. 4049: Automatic IRA Act of 2012
Sponsor: Rep Neal, Richard E. [MA-D]
Sen. Jeff Bingaman [NM-D] -September 2011
Rep Blumenauer, Earl [OR-D] – 2/16/2012

Rep Tierney, John F. [MA-D] – 8/2/2012
Rep Tsongas, Niki [MA-D] – 4/25/2012

Other related proposed legislation:

SB1234, introduced by California Congressman Kevin De Leon. It’s known as the “Golden State Retirement Trust.” This bill is based on GRA’s.

On May 6, 2012, Lauren Schmitz, a research analyst at the Barnard L Schwartz Center for Economic Analyst (SCEPA), introduced HB5337. SCEPA is the very same Institution where Teresa Ghularducci originated the GRA concept. This Connecticut Bill is also based on GRA’s.

9. I don’t like the idea of GRA’s, so can I just pay the early withdrawal penalty and tax, and pull everything out of my retirement account?

No! The Government has already thought of that. On May 18, 2011, Herb Kohl (D-WI) and Mike Enzi (R-WY) introduced “S1020-Saving Enhancement by Alleviating Leakage in 401k Savings Accounts, “AKA: Seal Savings Accounts. This bill will restrict you from accessing your money. In fact, you won’t even be able to borrow from it.

Food for thought – When a country is neck-deep in debt, and has nobody to borrow from, recent history has shown us that indebted Governments steal their citizens’ wealth! Countries such as Belgium, Poland, Hungary, France, Argentina, Bolivia and Ireland have already seized private retirement accounts.

If you have read Goldworth Financial’s previous reporting on the De-Privatization & Seizure of Retirement Accounts, WHY are you waiting for the OFFICIAL government announcement: “To Protect You and for the Good of Our Country, we are Nationalizing Private retirement accounts”? By then, it will be too late to do anything about it!

It’s the old “Frog in a Boiling Pot of Water” they turn up the heat, in stages.

IF the Supreme Court’s ruling on Obamacare didn’t wake you, it should! The ruling will simply be used as case law, when government “herds” everyone into Nationalized Retirement Accounts.

Religion of Peace…..Two Afghan children beheaded in separate incidents


KABUL (Reuters) – An adolescent boy and a young girl have been beheaded in two separate incidents in Afghanistan, local officials and police said on Friday, in the latest brazen attacks that have raised fresh questions about a splintering Taliban.

A 12-year-old boy was kidnapped and killed in southern Kandahar province on Wednesday, his severed head placed near his body to send a warning to police, said provincial governor spokesman Jawid Faisal.

The brother of the boy, neither of whom were named by officials, was a member of the Afghan Local Police (ALP), a U.S.-trained militia charged with making Afghans in Taliban strongholds, like Kandahar, feel more secure, Faisal said.

“It’s a Taliban warning to the ALP and to others who support the government,” Faisal said of the killing, which happened in Kandahar’s Panjwai district.

Taliban spokesman Qari Yousuf denied the group was involved.

Separately, a 6-year-old girl was beheaded in eastern Kapisa province on Thursday, said provincial police chief Abdul Hamed.

“We are not sure if she was beheaded by her family or the Taliban, but we know the Taliban control the area,” Hamed said of the killing in Jalukhil village. He added that he could not send investigators to the area out of fears for their safety.

The murders follow the shooting or beheading of 17 young revelers attending a party in southern Helmand province this week, which officials said was the work of the Taliban, a charge the group also denied.

That massacre raised fresh concerns about Taliban leaders’ grip on their scattered fighters, amid on-again, off-again peace moves by the group with the Afghan government.

It also suggested that there are grassroots insurgent fighters who are not in a mood for compromise.

“What we’re seeing could be a new tactic by the Taliban to behead civilians to intimidate the population,” said Faisal.

In Kandahar’s Zhari district, officials also said on Friday that a 16-year-old boy accused by the Taliban of spying for the government was beheaded and skinned in late July.

Such incidents highlight the difficulty that Taliban leaders have in enforcing discipline across an estimated 20,000 fighters spread from Afghanistan to Pakistan.

The central Taliban leadership is trying to improve the group’s image in case it wants to push forward tentative reconciliation steps and perhaps even enter mainstream politics. But some militant units are hard to control, roaming the countryside and attacking those deemed immoral.

NATO will withdraw most of its combat troops by the end of 2014, leaving Afghan forces in the lead security role.

BREAKING NEWS: 7.9-quake off Philippines triggers tsunami alert


MANILA, Philippines (AP) — A 7.9-magnitude undersea quake struck off the eastern coast of the Philippines late Friday, triggering tsunami warnings across a wide swath of Asia. There were no immediate reports of damage or injury.

A tsunami alert was in effect for the Philippines, Indonesia, Taiwan, Japan, Guam, the Northern Marianas and Papua New Guinea, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.

The quake hit at a depth of 34.9 kilometers (21.7 miles) and was centered 106 kilometers (66 miles) east of Samar Island, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The head of the Philippine seismology agency, Renato Solidum, said his bureau recorded a preliminary magnitude of 7.7. He said that residents living along the coastline of eastern Samar Island were advised to evacuate to high ground in case of the tsunami.

Dutch Navy to search for Dundee-based submarine lost in WWII



==========================================
A Dutch naval expedition is hoping to locate the wreck of a Dundee-based World War Two submarine more than 70 years after it disappeared.

O-13, or Onderzeeboot 13, escaped from Holland during the German invasion in May 1940 to join the Royal Navy.

The boat failed to return from a mission in the North Sea in June that year.

O-13 is the only Dutch submarine lost during the war which has not been located and given war grave status.

The submarine initially served in the English Channel after joining the Royal Navy, where it helped protect the Dunkirk evacuation.

It was then sent north to join the 9th Submarine Flotilla based at HMS Ambrose in Dundee.

Last patrol

O-13 left the base on 12 June 1940, 24 hours after a message was sent from Norway suggesting the Germans were assembling a large force there to attack the east coast of Scotland.

The crew were tasked to patrol the waters between Denmark and Norway should the Germans make a move.

Lt Brian Greswell was one of three British crew on board O-13
However, neither the submarine nor her 31 Dutch and three British crew were heard from again.

Three scenarios have been proposed to explain the loss of O-13:

the vessel was accidentally rammed by another Dundee-based submarine on patrol in the same area, the Polish Wilk
the boat was the victim of enemy action
or the submarine passed through an enemy minefield which was only discovered in charts found in a captured U-boat in 1941.
Researchers believe it is most likely that the submarine was destroyed by a mine.

The Dutch Navy, in conjunction with North Sea oil and gas exploration firms, will mount a large-scale search for the wreck towards the end of September, concentrating on the area of the German minefield.

O-13 and her crew are now commemorated at the annual Dundee International Submarine Memorial service.

Among those who will attend the service at 11:00 on Saturday will be Mrs Gerda Veldhuis, daughter of Dutch crewman Cornelis Havenaar, and Cpt James Greswell, an Afghanistan veteran serving in 42 Commando, Royal Marines – the great nephew of British O-13 crewman Lt Brian Greswell.

Sickening: Obama Didn’t Even Personally Sign Form Letters To Fallen SEALs


Outside of the Republican National Convention this week, Karen and Billy Vaughn spoke at the Defending the Defenders forum sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots. The Vaughn’s son, Aaron Carson Vaughn, was one of 30 – including 17 elite Navy SEALs – that were killed in a helicopter crash last August in Afghanistan, marking the “deadliest single loss for U.S. forces in the decade-long war in Afghanistan.”

As pointed out by the Gateway Pundit, The Vaughns brought the letter they received from “Barack Obama” – a form letter.

It was signed by an electric pen.

That’s not all. Karen Vaughn reached out to the parents of the other SEALs killed in that crash.Their letters were all the same. Form letters – signed by an electric pen.”
The deadliest single loss of American lives in Afghanistan over the last decade or so, and Barack Obama couldn’t even take the time to sign his name a few times with a pen.

Maybe you recall what the “evil” George W. Bush did during his time in the White House.

“Mr. Bush, for instance, has sent personal letters to the families of every one of the more than 4,000 troops who have died in the two wars, an enormous personal effort that consumed hours of his time and escaped public notice. The task, along with meeting family members of troops killed in action, has been so wrenching – balancing the anger, grief and pride of families coping with the loss symbolized by a flag-draped coffin – that the president often leaned on his wife, Laura, for emotional support.”
Obama has shown nothing but contempt for Our Military Personel, Our Country’s Flag and the American People…VOTE NO OBAMA IN 2012

Scientists confirm ripples in space-time caused by a pair of white dwarf stars



=========================================
A team of researchers has found visible evidence of gravity waves around two dead stars, confirming ripples in space-time that were first predicted by Albert Einstein. The concept was part of Einstein’s theory of relativity, but had only been inferred through use of radio waves. Now, investigators have seen changes in the orbits of two white dwarf stars 3,000 light years away that prove the theory.

The star duo is known as J0651, and they orbit each other in less than 13 minutes. The orbit time changes as the stars eclipse each other as seen by the scientists here on Earth. “There have been 30 years of using radio telescopes and timing pulsars, but this is the first time we’ve been able to detect the influence of gravitational wave radiation using an optical telescope,” lead investigator J.J. Hermes from the University of Texas at Austin said.

New ‘Heartland’ Virus Discovered in Sick Missouri Farmers….


Two men in Missouri who became severely ill after sustaining tick bites were found to be infected with a new type of virus, according to a study from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Both men were admitted to hospitals after experiencing high fevers, fatigue, diarrhea and loss of appetite. They were originally thought to be suffering from a bacterial infection, but doubts arose when they didn’t improve after being treated with antibiotics.

Further tests revealed their blood contained a new virus, which the researchers dubbed the Heartland virus. It belongs to a group called phleboviruses, which are carried by flies, mosquitoes or ticks, and can cause disease in humans.

While the genetic material of Heartland virus appears similar to that of other phleboviruses, the particular proteins it produces are different enough to call it a new species, said study researcher Laura McMullan, a senior scientist at the CDC.

Because the Heartland virus causes such general symptoms, it could be “a more common cause of human illness than is currently recognized,” the researchers wrote in the Aug. 30 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.

More studies are needed to identify the natural hosts of the virus, learn how many people are infected with it and find risk factors for infection, McMullan said.

Because both men experienced tick bites shortly before they became ill — one man, a farmer, reported receiving an average of 20 tick bites a day — the researchers said it’s likely that the Heartland virus is spread by ticks, although more research is needed to confirm this.

The new virus’s closest relative is another tick-borne phlebovirus, called SFTS virus, which was identified last year in China, and causes death in 12 percent of cases.

The Missouri men, who were both infected in 2009, recovered after 10 to 12 days in the hospital, although one of the men has reported recurrent headaches and fatigue in the two years since his hospitalization.

The researchers suspect a species of tick commonly found in Missouri, called Amblyomma americanum, is one of the hosts of the Heartland virus.

For now, taking precautions to prevent tick bites is the best way to avoid the virus, McMullan said. To prevent tick bites, the CDC recommends using repellents that contain 20 percent or more DEET, as well as avoiding wooded areas or areas with high grass.

Pass it on: The Heartland virus is a new species of virus that can cause severe illness in people, and appears to be carried by ticks.

Why Your Cellphone Has More Bacteria Than a Toilet Seat..cough, gag!!


Cellphones carry 10 times more bacteria than most toilet seats, so it shouldn’t be surprising that a man in Uganda reportedly contracted Ebola after stealing one.

He stole the phone from a quarantined ward of a hospital, near the site of a recent Ebola outbreak, reports said.

But regardless of your proximity to an Ebola outbreak, your cellphone is still probably pretty grimy, said Charles Gerba, a microbiologist at the University of Arizona.

“They’ve got quite a bit on them,” Gerba said. “When’s the last time you cleaned your cellphone?”

While toilets tend to get cleaned frequently, because people associate the bathroom with germs, cellphones and other commonly handled objects — like remote controls— are often left out of the cleaning routine.

Cellphones pick up germs all the time, Gerba said. “I see people talk on their phone on toilets.”

However, the amount of germs on a phone isn’t a problem — it’s the sharing of phones between people. Without sharing, each phone carries just one set of germs, and won’t get its owner sick, Gerba said.
The problem with phones is that we’re in constant contact with them, and they spend a lot of time in close proximity to our faces and mouths. And, because it’s an electronic device, most people are hesitant about cleaning them.

This is also this case with remote controls, which, Gerba noted, are also often used by people when they’re sick. Remotes are more frequently shared, too, so they’re usually even worse than phones for spreading germs, he said.

Other common culprits that are hotspots of unseen disease include office phones, shopping carts and the first-floor buttons of elevators, he said.

To limit the spread of diseases from phones or other objects, try not to share them, or wipe them down with an antibacterial wipe if you do. While sprays might damage the equipment, a gentle wipe should do the trick, Gerba said.

Pass it on: Your cellphone is 10 times more germy than a toilet seat.

Poland hopes to identify remains of Auschwitz hero…..



==========================================
WARSAW, Poland (AP) — It could hardly have been a riskier mission: infiltrate Auschwitz to chronicle Nazi atrocities. Witold Pilecki survived nearly three years as an inmate in the death camp, managing to smuggle out word of executions before making a daring escape. But the Polish resistance hero was crushed by the post-war communist regime — tried on trumped-up charges and executed.

Six decades on, Poland hopes Pilecki’s remains will be identified among the entangled skeletons and shattered skulls of resistance fighters being excavated from a mass grave on the edge of Warsaw’s Powazki Military Cemetery. The exhumations are part of a movement in the resurgent, democratic nation to officially recognize its war-time heroes and 20th century tragedies.

“He was unique in the world,” said Zofia Pilecka-Optulowicz, paying tribute to her father’s 1940 decision to walk straight into a Nazi street roundup with the aim of getting inside the extermination camp. “I would like to have a place where I can light a candle for him.”

More than 100 skeletons, mostly of men, have been dug up this summer. On one recent day, forensic workers and archaeologists wearing blue plastic gloves and masks were carefully scraping away at the soil and piecing together bones as if working on a jigsaw puzzle. The front of one skull had been blown away by bullets; another had apparently been bludgeoned; a skeleton showed evidence of multiple gunshot wounds.

Near the pit where the bodies were dumped under cover of night stand the well-tended tombstones of the very judges and prosecutors who sent these World War II heroes to their deaths under orders from Moscow, which was fearful that the Polish patriots might use their seasoned underground skills to turn the nation against its new pro-Soviet rulers.

“The perpetrators have not been punished and the bodies of the victims have not been found,” said Krzysztof Szwagrzyk, a historian in charge of the dig. “Those times will be coming back to us until we find the bodies and bury them with due honors.

“We are doing them justice.”

Pilecki’s son Andrzej and dozens of other relatives of victims have been swabbed in the hope their DNA will be a match for the skeletons. Initial work is being carried out to determine age, sex, height and injuries of the victims. It will take several months to determine if Pilecki, who was killed by a bullet to the back of his head, is among them. Thousands of resistance fighters were killed across Poland; the remains of up to 400 are believed to have been dumped in the Powazki mass grave.

Pilecki was 38 when Germany invaded Poland on Sept. 1, 1939, triggering the start of World War II. He helped organize a resistance campaign during which many fellow fighters were caught and sent to Auschwitz, which in the early war years served more as a camp for Polish resistance fighters than Jews. That inspired him to hatch an audacious plan: He told other resistance commanders that he wanted to become an Auschwitz inmate to check on rumors of atrocities.

Carrying documents bearing the alias Tomasz Serafinski, the Catholic cavalry officer walked into the German SS street roundup in Warsaw in September 1940, and was put on a train transport to Auschwitz, where he was given prisoner number 4859.

He was “exceptionally courageous,” said Jacek Pawlowicz, a historian with Warsaw’s Institute of National Remembrance.

Pilecki is the only person known to have volunteered for Auschwitz. His terse dispatches to the outside world were slips of thin paper stitched inside clothes of inmates leaving the camp or left in nearby fields for others to collect. They included only code names for inmates who were beaten to death, executed by gunfire or gassed. As sketchy as they were, they were the first eyewitness account of the Nazi death machine at Auschwitz.

Pilecki survived hard labor, beatings, cold and typhoid fever thanks to support from a clandestine resistance network that he managed to organize inside the camp. Some of its members had access to food, others to clothes or medicines.

He plotted a revolt that was to release inmates with the help of an outside attack by resistance fighters; it was never attempted because considered too risky, Pawlowicz said.

Pilecki escaped in April 1943 when he realized that the SS might uncover his work. With two other men he ran from a night shift at a bakery that was outside the death camp’s barbed wire fence.

After his escape, Pilecki wrote three detailed reports on the extermination camp.

One describes how his transport was met by yelling SS men and attacking dogs: “They told one of us to run to a post away from the road, and immediately sent a machine gun round after him. Killed him. Ten random colleagues were taken out of the group and shot, as they were walking, as ‘collective responsibility’ for the ‘escape’ that the SS-men arranged themselves.”

Pilecki’s heroics were for the most part in vain. Even though his accounts of gas chambers made it all the way to Poland’s government-in-exile in London and to other Western capitals, few believed what they were reading.

After escaping, Pilecki rejoined Poland’s Home Army resistance force and fought in the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, the city’s ill-fated revolt against the Nazis. In 1947, he was arrested by the secret security of the communist regime, imposed on Poland after the war, and falsely accused of planning to assassinate dignitaries.

The Soviet plan after World War II was to subdue the Poles by crushing resistance and erasing any sense of Polish identity or history. Today, more than two decades into Poland’s democracy, however, enough documentation and funds have been gathered to restore the banned past and try to find and identify the heroes’ bodies.

In addition to Pilecki, the search is on for the remains of other wartime resistance heroes, including Brig. Gen. August Emil Fieldorf, a top clandestine Home Army commander who once served as emissary to Poland of the country’s government-in-exile. He was accused of ordering killings of Soviet soldiers — charges that Poland’s communist authorities later admitted were fabricated — and hanged in 1953.

Szwagrzyk is not sure if Pilecki will be found at Powazki cemetery because it is not the only such clandestine site in Warsaw or the rest of Poland.

But his place in history is gradually being restored. A street in Warsaw is now named after him, as are some schools across the country.

He found communist prison harder to endure than Auschwitz. A fellow inmate described seeing him in prison slumped, unable to raise his head because his collar bones had been broken. At his show trial, he was hiding his hands because his fingernails had been ripped out during torture.

At one court session, he told his wife Maria that the secret security torture had sapped his will to go on.

“I can live no longer,” he said.

Chicago Man Saves Daughter From Abduction Attempt….



==========================================
It started out as a family sightseeing trip to Chicago, and ended as a nightmare when Kelly Davis chased down a man he says tried to kidnap his two-year-old daughter.

“We wanted take a nighttime adventure with our two daughters. We like to go to the city – it’s a nice place to see the tall buildings, the lights and the river,” Davis said. “And my oldest daughter loves the Picasso statue.” Davis and his children live in suburban Zion, Ill.

There is a slide at the base of the statue, which is located at Daley Plaza in the Chicago Loop. Davis said the girls were playing there when a man, who was later identified by police as James Gates, tried to grab Davis’ youngest daughter, Myla.

“We were playing on the Picasso and sliding and having fun,” Davis said. “And then I noticed that this guy was heading in our direction and his attention was focused our way.”

Davis said he wasn’t suspicious of Gates at first, but soon realized something was very wrong.

“It wasn’t too alarming because people will come up and ask for a cigarette or spare change or whatever. But as he got closer, I realized he wasn’t making eye contact with me and nothing to give me the feeling he is about to speak to me. And he gets even closer and I notice he has this fixation on my daughters.”

Davis said he put himself between his girls and the man who was closing in on them.

“I looked over and he was actually stepping up onto the statue and trying to reach around my left side and grab my daughter,” Davis said. “So I pushed him away and put my body between him and my daughter.”

Davis said his fiancee, Amanda Green, hurried the children to safety as Gates tried to attack him.

“This guy was in my face telling me that’s his daughter and her nickname is Goldilocks,” Davis said. “And I’m telling him to get the (expletive) away from my family, away from my daughter. And he’s being so persistent that it’s his daughter and trying to get through me to get to her.”

He said Gates then tried to attack him. Davis pulled back to dodge the punch, but was hit in the nose.

“The whole time I was just thinking, ‘there’s nothing this man can do to get past me to get my child,'” Davis said.

By then, a bystander had called the police.

“Then he just starts walking off, so I followed him,” Davis said. “My anger and adrenaline is running rampant.”

Davis said he followed Gates for about 25 minutes, down streets and alleyways, until the police came.

Gates was taken into custody and faces a felony charge of kidnapping with the threat of force and a misdemeanor battery charge, according to the Chicago Police Department.

David said the incident has had a lasting effect on him and his family.

“My two daughters, they’re still worried about us,” Davis said. “Myla was at the store the other day and someone came up to us and she said, ‘Bad man, bad man!’ She’s having trouble sleeping too…And I don’t think my fiancee and I are ever going to be not uptight in public.”

But in the end, Davis said he is thankful everyone is safe and hopes this incident will keep other children out of harm’s way.

“The police officers we dealt with, we’ve been so appreciative of them. I just hope that if he doesn’t plead guilty, that the jury or the judge finds him guilty based on all this information,” Davis said. “I hope he doesn’t have the opportunity to do this to anyone else.”
