74 children executed by ISIS for ‘crimes’ that include refusal to fast, report says

The blood-soaked executioners of ISIS have spared neither women nor children since the jihadist army established its caliphate a year ago, putting an estimated 74 kids and even more women to death for such offenses as practicing “magic” and refusing to fast during Ramadan.

A total of 3,027 people have been executed by ISIS since it declared itself a state under strict Islamic law in Syria and Iraq last June, according to a new report by the UK-based group, Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

“Many of the charges against those executed are recorded as blasphemy and spying, but others include sorcery, sodomy, practicing as a Shia Muslim,” the report states.

- New report on ISIS brutality

Just this week, two children whose ages were not known were crucified in the Mayadin, Deir Ezzor province in eastern Syria after ISIS accused them of not properly fasting during Ramadan. The children’s bodies, put on public display on crossbars, each bore a sign explaining their violation during the holy month for Muslims that runs June 17 to July 17. With each execution justified by ISIS’ medieval interpretation of the Koran, the group is attempting to portray itself as the true practitioners of Islam, say experts.

“Underlying all these executions is the apocalypse ideology of the final battle between the believers and the unbelievers,” said Jasmine Opperman, the director of Southern Africa Operations at the Terrorism, Research & Analysis Consortium. “ISIS is using executions to show its followers — and would-be followers — that the group is the only true representative of believers, not only in word, but action, which is why executions are featured so prominently.”

Other children died fighting for their lives.

“The violent Islamist group appears to demonstrate a particular interest in children, releasing videos of children fighting in cages and undertaking military training,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights group said. “The report also details moves undertaken by the group to entice children to join, which include setting up offices called “cubs of the caliphate” that recruit children to fight for ISIS.”

The United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child released a report in February, documenting the many horrors ISIS has imposed on children who are Kurdish, Yazidi, Christian and even Muslim. Children – even those who are mentally challenged – are being tortured, crucified, buried alive, used as suicide bombers and sold as sex slaves, the report said.

“ISIS is hoping to spur current supporters around the world who are dormant, of which there are millions, into joining their caliphate by advertising acts like these, of which there are millions,” said Ryan Mauro, national security analyst for the Clarion Project, a nonprofit organization that educates the public about the threat of Islamic extremism. “They know that they can greatly increase their numbers by appealing to current radicals rather than the broader masses.”

Women are not spared the cruel brutality of ISIS, either.

The Syrian Observatory found that the terror group carried out more executions this week, murdering two married couples by beheading them publicly with a sword for “sorcery.”

“The Islamic State group executed two women by beheading them in Deir Ezzor province, and this is the first time the Observatory has documented women being killed by the group in this manner,” Rami Abdel Rahman, of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, told the Daily Mail.

Other citizens suspected of practicing black magic or sorcery also have been killed, the organization reports, including a magician beheaded in recent weeks in the Iraqi province of Salahuddin.

“The practicing of anything that is not approved by Islamic State under their very strict interpretation of Islam is ‘Haram’ or forbidden,” said Veryan Khan, editorial director for the Florida-based Terrorism, Research & Analysis Consortium. “If the Islamic State thinks that sorcery is real, then black magic would be a threat to them and seen as a danger.”

ISIS stepped up its killing spree this week as it celebrated both Ramadan and its one-year anniversary as a caliphate in Iraq and Syria with three straight days of ruthless public punishments and executions. On June 30, 11 workers from al-Miadin endured live crucifixion and were forced to wear signs saying “70 lashes and to be crucified for 1 day for breaking the fast in Ramadan.”

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the most recent killing spree is less than a week, after ISIS released a video of 15 men executed in three terrible ways: Drowned in cages, having their head blown off with explosives and burning them alive in a car hit with a rocket launcher.

Last Friday, the Islamic State claimed responsibility for the death of 38 people in Tunisia who were gunned down, and another 27 people who died after a bomb rocked a Shia mosque in Kuwait.

“Islamic State executions are not merely retribution by the state for behavior seen as illegal,” said Khan, noting executions by the Islamic State include everything from burning alive victims, firing squads, beatings and beheadings, to drowning, explosions, and throwing people off of buildings. “The Islamic State uses executions to intimidate and dominate the local population, for diplomatic communiqués to world leaders, for recruitment purposes and to demonstrate the organization is in complete control.”

Unlike our county attorney, at least this public figure had the balls to take his medicine for his misdeed.

Grand Rapids man sentenced for November standoff

By Tom Olsen Today at 5:20 p.m.

A Grand Rapids man was sentenced to probation Tuesday for a November incident that prompted a seven-hour standoff with police that ended with SWAT teams firing tear gas into his home.

Robert James Williams, 30, pleaded guilty in April to a felony charge of making terroristic threats. Authorities said the charge stemmed from Williams’ threat to “shoot a police officer so he could commit ‘suicide by cop.’”

Judge Jon Maturi granted Williams a stay of imposition, placing him on five years of supervised probation. The sentence also includes 90 days in the Itasca County Jail — time that can be served through work release.

In a plea agreement, the Itasca County Attorney’s Office agreed to drop five other felony charges against Williams, including reckless discharge of a firearm and four counts of false imprisonment.

Authorities said Williams refused to leave his Grand Rapids home for several hours after making the threat on Nov. 13. His girlfriend and three children escaped from the house during the standoff by kicking out a screen and jumping from a window.

After he was forced from the home shortly before midnight, Williams told investigators that he was depressed and recently had tried to kill himself with the assault rifle, but it didn’t fire when he pulled the trigger, according to the charges.

Officers located an AR-10 assault rifle, 10 other rifles, three handguns and several rounds of ammunition in the residence, according to the charges.

 

Here’s another accused pervert that Judge Donovan Frank can take care of when he’s convicted.

Minnesota man allegedly filmed girl in shower at hockey camp

By Jennifer Stockinger, Forum New Service Today at 12:24 p.m.

James William Diffley

 

BRAINERD, Minn. – A hockey camp athletic trainer allegedly recorded video of a 14-year-old girl showering at a Minnesota ice arena, according to criminal charges.

James William Diffley, 32, of Maple Grove, is accused of reaching around a locker room privacy wall with his cell phone in the Breezy Point Hockey Center in Breezy Point, about 30 miles north of Brainerd in Crow Wing County.

He was charged June 24 in Crow Wing County District Court with a felony charge of interfering with a minor’s privacy. Diffley is set to make his initial court appearance at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.

According to the criminal complaint filed against Diffley, Breezy Point officers were dispatched at 9:45 p.m. June 2, to the ice arena for a report of a male possibly filming a girl who was showering in a locker room. An officer spoke with a 14-year-old girl and 15-year-old girl who were participating in an all-female hockey camp taking place in the ice arena.

The officer learned the 14-year-old was showering and the 15-year-old had left the arena, but returned to the locker room to retrieve an item she had forgotten. The 15-year-old approached the locker room and saw a male standing in the locker room with a phone in his hand reaching around a privacy wall. He appeared to be filming the girl showering.

The 15-year-old confronted the male, at which time he put the phone in his pocket and walked out, the complaint said. The man was captured on video at the arena and identified as Diffley, the hockey camp athletic trainer.

Diffley was located at a cabin in Breezy Point Resort and he admitted to using his phone to observe the girl showering, the complaint said.

Diffley could face two years in prison and a $5,000 fine if found guilty.

Will the libtards boycott Consumer reports for this?

The Votes Are In: America Has Chosen Its Favorite Fast-Food Restaurant

It’s the first year that Chick-fil-A was featured in the American Customer Satisfaction Index, and the Southern chicken chain took gold.

In a report released Tuesday, the ACSI asked more than 5,000 customers their opinions on fast-food chains and compiled a list of the best and the worst. Chick-fil-A finished in first place, with the highest score ever given to a fast-food chain, and Chipotle, also making its debut on the list, finishing close behind.

Unfortunately for the Golden Arches, McDonald’s finished in last place for the sixth year in a row.

According to the ACSI, the top six fast-food restaurants are:

1. Chick-fil-A
2. Chipotle
3. Panera
4. Dunkin’ Donuts
5. Pizza Hut
5. Papa John’s

The bottom six are:

1. McDonald’s
2. Jack in the Box
3. Burger King
4. Taco Bell
5. Wendy’s
6. KFC

“It is increasingly difficult for the McDonald’s of the world to compete,” ACSI Director David VanAmburg told Market Watch. “We are living in an interesting time when it comes to fast food: Five to 10 years from now, what will McDonald’s be?”

In 2014, the Consumer Reports proclaimed that more people enjoy Chick-fil-A over McDonald’s.

 

Looking for the payday. Her timing is questionable, don’t you think? I’m thinking if you pick a fight with a cop, you’d better expect an ass kicking.

Lancour files lawsuit against city of Superior, three police officers

By Shelley Nelson on Jun 29, 2015 at 5:56 p.m.

The city of Superior — and three of its police officers — are facing a lawsuit, filed Monday in Douglas County Circuit Court.

The suit alleges that Officer George Gothner used “excessive and unreasonable force” during the Jan. 5, 2014, arrest of Natasha Lancour outside Keyport Liquor and Lounge in Superior. The suit seeks no specific amount of money, but demands a jury trial.

It comes seven months after Gothner was given a one-day suspension for using vulgarities during that arrest. Gothner was cleared of any allegations of brutality during the arrest following a state and internal review of the incident.

Video released shortly after the incident, shot by a dashboard camera in Gothner’s squad car, showed him shoving Lancour, 29, of Superior onto the hood of the vehicle and striking her in the face with a closed fist as she reached toward his face and tried to pull away.

Bayfield County District Attorney Fred Bourg reviewed the case for possible charges following the state investigation into the incident. While he said that Gothner’s actions brought “disrepute to his police agency,” and that “there is ample evidence that his actions were rude, in poor taste, and possibly, unnecessarily violent,” no charges were filed. Bourg said he did not believe proof beyond a reasonable doubt existed to support charges.

An internal investigation into the incident found that Gothner’s use of force during the arrest was justified.

The lawsuit filed Monday also names Superior police Sgt. William Lear and Officer Sean Holmgren as co-defendants. The suit alleges that Lear and Holmgren failed to come to the aid of Lancour as Gothner used excessive force, and that Lear threatened to use a Taser. The lawsuit accuses all three officers of attempting to cover up Gothner’s use of excessive force by filing false reports to render charges against Lancour.

The suit cites 21 claims for relief for alleged excessive force, failure of bystander officers to intervene, false arrest, violations of constitutional rights, inadequate training policies, false imprisonment, emotional distress, assault, battery, malicious prosecution, negligence, negligent hiring, training and supervision, and preparation, creation and dissemination of false police reports.

Superior Police Chief Nicholas Alexander, who was serving as a deputy chief in at the time of Lancour’s arrest in January 2014, said he could not comment on pending litigation.

Lancour initially was charged with battery to a peace officer and disorderly conduct after the arrest, but the felony battery charge later was dropped; the disorderly conduct charge was dismissed in late October on a motion from Douglas County District Attorney Dan Blank.

 

Yup, she wants to be a hero to all Americans…cause she knows what its like.

 

Which will be the first charge dropped? Come on,, you know…

Man accused of stealing van, threatening to shoot owners

By Jamie Lund on Jun 29, 2015 at 11:05 a.m.

A Duluth man was arrested Thursday, June 11, for a slew of criminal offences, including assault, car theft, being a felon in possession of a firearm and drug possession.

Lance Lee Houle-Tiessen, 27, was arrested after officers were called to a residence on Sahlman Avenue in Cloquet about a man who stole a van, then threatened its owners with a shotgun.

According to the criminal complaint, when the van owners asked Houle-Tiessen for their van back — he hadn’t asked to borrow it — he pointed the gun at the owners and asked, “Who wants to come get them?” as he held their van keys.

“The defendant also held his shot gun up and pointed it to the thigh of one of the victims and said to him, ‘Watch your leg.’ The defendant then went back to the stolen vehicle, then went to another victim and pointed the shotgun towards her at close range,” the complaint stated.

Houle-Tiessen allegedly then pushed the female victim out of the way, went back to the van still carrying the shotgun, got in and drove away.

Cloquet police officers later interviewed the two victims, who described the firearm as a sawed off shotgun with a brown slide, a small handle and black tape wrapped around the grip of the gun, according to the criminal complaint.

Houle-Tiessen was taken into custody at Fond du Lac Gas and Grocery later, but he allegedly had already disposed of the gun.

Houle-Tiessen appeared in Carlton County Court June 16 and was charged with the following offenses: Felon in possession of a firearm, possession of pistol or semiautomatic assault weapon, two counts of second-degree assault, theft of a motor vehicle and possession of Cyclobenzaprine. He appeared again on Monday and demanded an omnibus hearing, which is set for July 6.

Houle-Tiessen has past felony convictions which has resulted in a lifetime ban of firearm possession. He was still in custody in Carlton County jail as of Monday, with bail set at $60,000 with a 10 percent cash option.

At least some are held accountable for their misdeeds…too bad the MSP doesn’t take handicap parking violations as seriously.

Minnesota State Patrol trooper charged with going 94 in 55 zone

By Don Davis, Forum News Service on Jun 29, 2015 at 2:09 p.m.

ST. PAUL — The trooper who has been the Minnesota State Patrol’s face in western Minnesota faces charges of driving 94 miles per hour in a 55 zone.

Sgt. Jesse Grabow has served as public information officer, but his duties will be handled by other troopers during an internal investigation into the April incident.

Patrol Capt. Brian Cheney and Assistant Fergus Falls City Attorney Joseph Ellig filed the speeding complaint Friday and the patrol released information Monday.

The 38-year-old Grabow, based in Detroit Lakes, could be fined up to $300, with a $150 surcharge.

The complaint states that Trooper Robyn Birr was on patrol on Minnesota 210 in Fergus Falls when a car was clocked at 95 mph and 94 mph about 6:45 a.m., April 28.

Birr activated the patrol car’s emergency lights, but turned them off after meeting the car and seeing it was a trooper vehicle. The complaint says that Grabow sent a message to Birr saying that they had met on Minnesota 210 and Birr determined that Grabow’s vehicle was the only other trooper vehicle in the area at the time.

The car apparently was not on an emergency call at the time.

A Department of Public Safety spokesman said it took officials from April until last week to review whether to issue the speeding ticket.

The patrol’s state chief said that troopers are “not immune to the dangers of exceeding the speed limit.”

“Sgt. Jesse Grabow, a 17-year veteran and valued member of our agency, erred in judgment and broke the law when he was observed speeding on duty without cause,” Col Matt Langer said. “We take this very seriously and have initiated an internal affairs investigation now that the city attorney has completed his review.”

Grabow was educated at Alexandria Technical College and became a trooper May 2, 1998.

He received a lifesaving award in 2012 and the patrol says that he has received no formal complaints or been subject to any disciplinary actions.

 

Wait, what? I thought “love wins”?

Duluth doctor accused of stalking man

Daniel Cabot

By Nathan Bowe Today at 6:06 p.m.
A Duluth doctor remained jailed in western Minnesota on Monday, a week after being arrested for allegedly stalking a former boyfriend.

Dr. Daniel Tyra Cabot, 46, of Duluth, has been charged in Becker County District Court with a felony count of pattern of stalking. He also faces four counts of felony fifth-degree controlled substance crimes.

According to court documents, Cabot continued to contact the former boyfriend in the Detroit Lakes area, despite a restraining order and the felony stalking charge filed earlier in the month.

The former boyfriend told authorities that Cabot showed up at his house at 5 a.m. June 21, but Cabot left before a deputy could get there. When he was arrested early next morning, police allegedly found in his possession two sets of handcuffs, mace and a roll of duct tape.

Cabot is a physician and surgeon in good standing with the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice and has worked for numerous health facilities across the Northland.

His attorney, Simon George of Detroit Lakes, said it’s too early to comment on the case because the investigation is ongoing.

Cabot was arrested on June 15 and released from the Becker County Jail that afternoon; he allegedly e-mailed the victim twice that evening.

Three days later, he allegedly faxed a letter to the man’s attorney, threatening to report him to a professional ethics board unless the man agreed to “drop charges against me.” That same day he called the victim, according to the charges.

Three days after that, the victim was awoken at about 5 a.m. at his Lake Melissa home, just south of Detroit Lakes, as a red sports utility vehicle was pulling up next to his garage. He reported seeing Cabot get out and walk toward the garage before leaving.

That same day, Cabot allegedly sent messages to the man on a software application called Life360. One acknowledged he had been at the house earlier and another said he was “coming by tonight.”

Cabot was found and arrested in the early morning hours the next day, June 22.

The drug charges stem from a prescription bottle filled with pills of various colors, shapes and sizes, allegedly found in his possession when he was booked into the Becker County Jail on June 15.

He also allegedly had two sublingual films of Suboxone, used to treat narcotics addiction. Authorities reported that Cabot said that, as a doctor, he is a “provider” of Suboxone and carries some as samples for patients who might need it.

He also allegedly said he had prescriptions for all 144 pills.

But after an analysis by two agents with the West Central Minnesota Drug Task Force, who compared the pills with a list of prescribed medications that had been faxed by Cabot’s medical provider, about half the pills were found to be without prescriptions.

They included 67 hydrochloride-type pain pills, two amphetamine-type pills, and the two films of Suboxone, which are designed to be used under the tongue.

It’s not clear if Cabot continues to practice medicine. On his LinkedIn profile, Cabot said he specializes in the areas of addiction medicine, pain management and psychiatry.

The LinkedIn page lists Cabot as the medical director of the Duluth-based Center for Alcohol and Drug Treatment, but CEO Gary Olson said he is no longer working there. He also is not practicing at Essentia Health, where he was listed as a family physician, according to spokeswoman Maureen Talarico.

The LinkedIn page indicates that he had been working at Scenic Rivers Health Services in Floodwood since January 2013, but a receptionist there said he no longer works there and hadn’t for some time.

A phone message left with the Scenic Rivers Health personnel office was not immediately returned.

The Minnesota Board of Medical Practice lists Cabot as a physician and surgeon with an active license issued in 2005 that expires Feb. 29, and no disciplinary action on his record.

Cabot appeared June 23 before District Judge Jay Carlson, who set bond at $100,000 or cash bail at $15,000, with conditions including wearing a GPS location tracking device, worn on the ankle.

He remained in custody at the Becker County Jail on Monday, according to online records.
