Tucson Criminal Held By Fence

Tucson, AZ – A criminal in Arizona learned a lesson in karma on Friday.

According to TucsonNewsNow, the incident occurred about 10:30 AM on Friday, at Miles-Exploratory Learning Center on East Broadway Boulevard.

A locksmith who was working at the school saw a man trying to get into two of the rooms. When the man saw the locksmith, he ran and tried to jump back over the school’s spiked fence. And that is where things got interesting.
He didn’t quite jump high or long enough, and his pants legs got caught on the spikes of the fence. The man was left hanging upside down, with his underwear showing.

Two bystanders passing by saw the man. One bystander, Jesse Sensibar, said that he saw the man while he was driving by, and decided to turn around and help. He said that by the time he got turned around and got back to the man, that Tucson Police Officers “were rolling in two cars deep.”

In a Facebook post, Sensibar said:

“One more reason not to jump fences in baggy pants. I saw this homie hanging around at the Miles School this morning when I was rolling eastbound on Broadway Avenue.

I was going to help him off the fence but by the time I got back around the block the cops were rolling up two cars deep. I don’t know what his story was but it must not have been good enough, fifteen minutes later when I went back by the other direction going home he was cuffed up in the backseat. He smiled for the camera.”

The man, who was not identified, was arrested by the Tucson Police Department. He was not injured. The school was on spring break at the time of the incident, and no students were present.

What could possibly go wrong?

Seattle to let heroin addicts shoot up in first-ever government ‘supervised injection facility’

Justin Haskins 1 min

Officials in Seattle and King County, Washington, are working to find funding and locations to build two supervised injection facilities that will allow heroin addicts to shoot up without any fear of punishment and under the supervision of state-sponsored medical professionals. Once constructed, the facilities will be the first of their kind in the United States.

According to a report by Governing, the sites will also include HIV testing and other services many drug addicts are not currently receiving.

Jeff Duchin, health officer of public health for Seattle and King County, told Governing the effort is meant to help people transition out of addiction in a safe environment.

“This isn’t about enabling drug use,” Duchin said. “These are sick people, and they’re in danger of dying alone and outside. We want people to be able to be kept alive until they’re ready for treatment.”
Seattle already provides a needle-exchange program that allows heroin users to obtain clean needles to shoot up without fear of HIV and other diseases that are easily spread by sharing dirty needles. However, some with knowledge of that program say it doesn’t do enough to help many addicts, especially homeless addicts.

Prior to a vote by the King County Board of Health regarding the facilities in January, Courtney Large, a student at the University of Washington who volunteers at a Seattle needle exchange, said, along with many others at the hearing, supervised injection sites could save lives more effectively than the current needle-exchange program.

“We give people clean needles and then send them into alleyways to overdose,” Large said, according to a report by the Seattle Times.

The Seattle Times reports 132 people died in King County, which includes Seattle, in 2015. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports 13,000 people died from a heroin overdose nationwide in 2015, a 20 percent increase compared to 2014.

Currently, there is only one supervised injection facility in North America, located in Vancouver, Canada. San Francisco is also reportedly weighing the possibility of building facilities that allow users to shoot up in a government-controlled environment.

Its a trend certain to continue in states that appreciate liberty of its citizens.

According to CBS News, the state of North Dakota has recently passed a law that allows residents to carry a concealed firearm without a license.

The bill, signed into law on Thursday by Republican Gov. Doug Burgum, will allow residents 18 years or older to carry a sidearm with them so long as they have a valid I.D., and do not have a criminal background. Carriers must also notify authorities of their firearm in such instances as traffic stops.

“Gun ownership is both a right and a responsibility,” said Burgum in a statement about the new law. “That responsibility begins with individuals and families.”

The bill will take effect in August 1st, making North Dakota one of 12 states that allow what is being called “constitutional carry.” At present, however, being caught with a concealed weapon without a permit will result in 30 days of jail time, and a fine of $1,500.
The bill had the support of the National Rifle Association, who tweeted out it’s success upon passage.

This bill recognizes a law-abiding adult’s Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses,” said the NRA in a statement. “Self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate. Accordingly, a law-abiding adult’s right to defend himself or herself in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes.”

Democratic Philly DA indicted for allegedly stealing from his own mother, public corruption

Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams has been indicted by federal prosecutors on charges of public corruption and fraud, as well as for allegedly stealing more than $20,000 from his own mother.

Williams is a Democrat who was first elected in 2009, and easily re-elected in 2013. The indictments represent the culmination of a series of scandals that have dogged Williams’ office recently and led him to promise last month not to seek re-election.

The breadth and scope of Williams’ alleged misconduct is staggering, even by the standards of Democratic city machine politics. Williams is accused of accepting bribes in the form of cash and expensive gifts from wealthy Philadelphia citizens in exchange for help with their legal troubles. According to the indictment, Williams accepted expensive clothes, vacations to luxury spots, and even a Jaguar convertible in exchange for favors from his office.

All told, Williams is accused of accepting more than $175,000 in undisclosed “gifts,” for which he has already been fined $62,000 by the Philadelphia Board of Ethics — the largest such fine levied by the board in its history.
Worse still, Williams is accused of having misappropriated more than $20,000 in Social Security and pension income that was intended to pay for his mother’s nursing home expenses and using those funds to pay his personal mortgage and utility bills.

According to the 23-count indictment, Williams repeatedly described himself as “poor” and a “beggar” to wealthy individuals who were targets of investigation by his office and often pled with them for gifts, which they happily provided. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Williams earns an annual salary of $175,572 but has complained publicly about his inability to pay alimony from a 2011 divorce and private school tuition for his daughters.

“I am merely a thankful beggar and don’t want to overstep my bounds in asking,” he wrote in one February 2012 text message to a donor in reference to a second planned Caribbean vacation on the donor’s tab. He told another in 2013 that he “never want[ed] to feel like a drag on your wallet,” yet he allegedly returned again and again to seek the man’s help in paying for trips to California, Florida, and Las Vegas.

Some of those gifts featured prominently in Tuesday’s indictment, including a $3,000 trip Williams took in 2012 with his then-girlfriend to the Dominican Republic, where they stayed in a presidential suite complete with access to a private beach and personal butler.

The excursion was bankrolled by Mohammad N. Ali, a Bucks County businessman who sold old prepaid telephone cards and who, according to the indictment, spared no expense in showering Williams with other gifts, including a $3,212 custom sofa and cash payments of $9,000.
Williams came to national prominence in 2011 with the “Billy Doe” prosecution of three priests and a schoolteacher that was based on the testimony of an altar boy. The case was sensationalized by now-disgraced Rolling Stone writer Sabrina Rubin Erdely, and after Erdely’s story about the alleged rape of a University of Virginia student was exposed as a hoax, journalists observed that many of the allegations involved in the “Billy Doe” case likewise lacked credibility and contained numerous factual discrepancies.

Williams also came under fire in 2015 when he refused to fire prosecutors, who worked in his office, for sending pornographic, racially charged emails with their government email addresses.

The allegations of public corruption and influence-peddling that led to Williams’ indictment surfaced when the FBI and IRS began a joint investigation into his finances in 2015.

Swedish Police Station So Dangerous Officers Can’t Commute in Alone

The danger posed to police in the notorious Swedish No-Go Zone of Rinkeby will likely mean they will not be allowed to use public transportation to get to work and may have to be driven to the station daily for their personal safety.
The heavily migrant-populated Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby in Sweden is often cited as a textbook example of a No-Go Zone where police are constantly under threat of attack from residents. To deal with the danger, the police have planned a new fortified police station. But police are at such risk it may not safe for them to take public transport to work, Mitti.se reports.

The new station in Rinkeby will cost 380 million Swedish Krona (£35 million) to build. It will look like and be designed as a fortress with bullet proof windows, steel reinforced walls, and surrounded by security fence. Security is the police’s main concern in the area following attacks against them by residents while out on patrol. Police in Rinkeby rarely venture on foot into the area without backup.

Göran Strömberg, acting head of the police force’s national local planning, said: “The new police building will be a protected and have the same type of security as police stations in similar areas like Rosengård and Södertälje.” Rosengård, a migrant-populated suburb in the southern city of Malmö, is notorious for its gang crime and grenade attacks.

Christoffer Ersenius, local union president of the police district of Rinkeby, said many officers who police the area are still afraid for their safety. “There is concern among the staff about working in a police station in Rinkeby. We understand this concern, especially when it is about how to safely travel to and from their workplace in Rinkeby,” he said adding that many who work in the police would be recognised by locals.

There are also safety concerns for those contracted to build the new police station. Earlier this month, it was revealed that the police had put the project on hold as contractors were reluctant to take on the work for fear of their workers’ safety.

Dramatic footage also emerged weeks ago that showed how police in Rinkeby are treated by locals. The footage, which is said to come from 2015, shows youths attacking police and telling them they have no authority in the troubled neighbourhood.

Rinkeby was also the site of a riot which saw looting and car burnings less than 48 hours after U.S. President Donald J. Trump mentioned the impact of mass migration on Sweden.

Minnesota poachers charged in state’s largest illegal trapping bust: ‘They are butchers’

By Joe Albert Published March 22, 2017

A two-year investigation by Minnesota DNR conservation officers has resulted in two men facing charges for illegal trapping activities, in what is likely the largest poaching case of its kind in state history.

The Duluth News Tribune reports that the men — Douglas Anthony Marana, 70, and Roderick Robert Kottom, 68, both of Chisholm, in northern Minnesota — are accused of running 638 illegally set snares.

“That is such a number that it’s unheard of,” Tom Provost, MDNR regional enforcement supervisor, told the newspaper. “This number of sets has not been surpassed in Minnesota before. Our average for fail-to-attend traps or snares would be one to 10. Ten would be a big number in any other case.”
The men were charged with gross misdemeanors for illegally taking or possessing pine marten, otter, fisher and wolverine. The pair was also charged for failing to tend snares (Minnesota law requires snares be checked daily) and for making snare loops too large. Further, the state alleges that the snares weren’t properly identified, reports the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

Conservation officers purportedly seized 17 foxes, five snowshoe hares, two fisher, and one deer that the poachers had illegally taken. Officers also suspect numerous dogs were trapped.

The case began in Dec. 2014, when a conservation officer received a tip that a wolf had been caught in a snare. According to the News Tribune, the responding officer found other snares and bait of the same type that caught the wolf nearby. In time, officers obtained a warrant to place a tracking device on Kottom’s vehicle, and, during a search of Marana’s home, they seized a GPS device that contained data on where traps were set.

“That had waypoint data,” Provost told the News Tribune. “[Marana and Kottom] did a good job of marking their trap sites for us.”

Marana has no previous game-related violations on his record. But that’s not the case for Kottom, who, in 2004, had fisher and pine marten pelts seized from his home, and who was also convicted for various counts of unlawful trapping in 2007 and 2013. What’s more, he was fined and on probation in 2008 for possessing a mounted Canada lynx, a federally protected species.

As far as Bert Highland, a trapper from northern Minnesota, is concerned, Kottom and Marana can’t be considered trappers. “They are butchers,” he told the Star Tribune. “You’ve got to give them their day in court, but they are not sportsmen, and they are not conservationists.”

The men face one year in prison and $3,000 in fines.

Sen. Al Franken to Gorsuch: Are You Part of Steve Bannon’s Plan for Deconstruction of the Administrative State?

Franken-Gorsuch-Drew-AngererGetty-640x480

During Judge Neil Gorsuch’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) asked Gorsuch about remarks made by President Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff Reince Preibus and Chief Strategist Steve Bannon at the recent Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) conference in D.C. about plans for the “deconstruction of the administrative state.”

“Mr. Priebus [said] your nomination was central to President Trump’s fulfilling his policy objectives, quote, ‘Neil Gorsuch represents a type of judge that has a vision of President Trump, and it,’ — referring to your nomination — ‘fulfills the promise that he made to all of you,’ speaking to the conservative activists gathered at CPAC,” Franken said. “What do you think that Mr. Priebus was talking about?”
“Respectfully, Senator, Mr. Priebus doesn’t speak for me and I don’t speak for him,” Gorsuch said. “I don’t appreciate when people characterize me, as I’m sure you don’t appreciate when people characterize you.

“I like to speak for myself,” Gorsuch said. “I am a judge.

“I am my own man,” Gorsuch added.

Franken then pressed Gorsuch about Bannon’s remarks at CPAC.

“I want to get back to the panel at CPAC,” Franken said. “After Mr. Priebus discussed your nomination, Steve Bannon talked about the president’s agenda,” Franken said. “He described three priorities; one of them was, quote, ‘The deconstruction of the administrative state.’”

“Here’s what Mr. Bannon meant by that,” Franken said. “He said that regulation was a problem from his perspective and, quote, ‘Every business leader we’ve had in is saying not just taxes but it is also regulation.’”

“He said that if you look at the President’s appointees, quote, ‘They were selected for a reason and that is deconstruction,’” Franken said. “The way the progressive left runs is if they can’t get it passed [in legislation] they’re just going to put in some sort of regulation in an agency.’”

“Taking Steve Bannon at his word, do you think only Cabinet appointees were selected to bring about this deconstruction or do you think the White House also sees a role here for its judicial nominees?” Franken asked Gorsuch.

“Senator, respectfully, I believe that’s a question best directed to Mr. Bannon,” Gorsuch replied.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to continue Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing for two more days.

Tony Cornish nails it, again.
