Saa Fomba of Texas follows in the footsteps of Police Gazette Champion bridge jumpers like Steve Brodie, who successfully jumped off the Poughkeepsie Bridge (now the Walkway over the Hudson) from a height of approximately 225 feet in 1888. Fomba's jump from the top of the Pennybacker Bridge in Austin on November 23rd was from a height of at least 250 feet, beating Brodie's record. Congratulations to Saa Fomba! We hope he continues to follow his dreams, but that they are safer dreams from now on!

Can anyone here date this Police Gazette cover? I know it is out of focus (it is in the background of a photograph I am trying to date) but I thought it might have enough detail to be identified by a Police Gazette collector. I have looked at every source I can find online with no luck. Also can anyone tell me the name of the smaller publication under the Police Gazette?

The National Police Gazette is a feature in a new novel called Bleecker Street. Ricard Fox is one of the characters. A good read for those who like crime stories.
I grew up READING MAMA'S MAGAZINES FOR A WHILE I WOULD SNEAK AND READ LONG BEFORE MY MOM KNEW THAT I COULD READ AND UNDERSTAND THE POLICE GAZETTE....
She also told me I could not use the gift card I had won at a community Christmas dinner the other day. It was for a dinner at a local restaurant. I used it anyway.
Then she said, with the help of another voice at the end, "Because I am in league with Satan and he is powerful, and I made an oath to kill every member of your family before noon tomorrow, unless you do what we want- to put yourself away in a prison"
I was told not to write down what was being said, as I usually do, because I write from notes "and when you do", she said, "I will do something else."
"iF YOU DON'T DO WHAT WE WANT, i WILL KEEP YOU FROM HAVING HEAT", SHE SAID.
I have been told she can stop the heat in my house by pushing on a button (perhaps I am oversimplifying this) At one point, when the heat began to go on, and there was the sound that goes with it, she said "I want that one.". I believe it refers to stopping the heater as it tries to go on.
The pres. off offers the things she takes from me to Satan. She expects me to care about her need to get power, and to help her with it at my expense.
res. off is still trying to stop my heat in the home. If she does it a little at a time, she says noone will notice when there is none. I hear voices of others saying that by law I have a right to heat.
(social experiment) Last night they put a new kind of sound in my head as I slept. It was disturbing. They did it many times. It was a noise hard to describe. The pres. off. ordered me to use the word "thump" to describe it. I did not.
SERIAL KILLERS GO BEYOND THE NORM OF MALE BOUNDARIES. Do we start by blaming all men for producing the serial killer when it comes as no surprise his continuation of men's low standards of sexual behaviour? He overspilt but the cup of men was already full......... Serial killers also come via today's sick male boundaries by a 'natural' path of extrapolated extremism - unknown to the female sex - which is accepted as usual practice of low morallity, but is not normal. Men should eliminate immorality from their accepted practices towards women. eg male predator, always having that hand ready to rape, which men call 'touching', every man is in a 'Rape Army' to assist other men to lure women etc., Men surge towards and emanate from their over-stretched boundaries so dangerously projectile that an out-of-control response can (yet rarely) be expected to over-reach itself as in the serial killer. He is taking quantifiable danger to the next level out of bounds to all men who were his origin of thought, and whose, theirs', fire-in-the-belly immorality initiated insanity in the vulnerably insane, the serial killer. Men have set boundaries beyond which it is possible only to extrapolate criminally as in the case in particular of serial killers. Or so it would seem impossible to follow on from bad example of all men if those set boundaries instead represented morality and normality. Unfortunately, men extend and fix many of the boundaries of their male behaviour at an unacceptably low and cowardly anti-social level so that going beyond for killers is just a continuation of that downward path and an extrapolation of evil towards their innocent women victims.
