Minnesota authorities reportedly nab 12-year-old wanted in Nebraska killing

Authorities in Minnesota reportedly arrested a 12-year-old boy early Wednesday in connection with a deadly drug-related ambush last month in a park in Omaha, Neb.

The boy, along with two other boys — Jamar Milton, 17, and Shuntayvious Primes-Willis, 15 — allegedly planned to rob two men they lured to Miller Park on June 29 on the premise they wanted to do a marijuana deal, a Douglas County prosecutor told the Omaha World-Herald.

Milton and Primes-Willis were arrested Monday, Fox 6 reported. Both teens were being held without bail and charged as adults with first-degree murder. Jamar Milton and the 12-year-old are brothers.

Douglas County Prosecutor Jim Mastellar said the boys, who police say have gang ties, flashed guns during their meeting with the two men, identified as Charles Fisher, 30, and Jamymell Ray, 31.

Primes-Willis allegedly shot Fisher, wounding him, but it was unclear which of the boys shot and killed Ray, the newspaper reported. District Attorney Don Kleine said police found two guns at the scene, and were searching for a third.

 

This is what the liberal blame game looks like.

SF sheriff defends prior release of suspect in pier slaying

By JANIE HAR and AMY TAXIN
Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi has defended his office’s decision to release a Mexican man who was in the U.S. illegally and who is now suspected in the killing of a woman at a sightseeing pier.

Mirkarimi said that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency should earlier have issued an arrest warrant for Francisco Sanchez.

“ICE knew that he had been deported five times,” Mirkarimi said. “You would have thought he met a threshold that he required a court order or a warrant. They did not do that.”

Prosecutors on Monday charged Sanchez with murder in the death of Kathryn Steinle, who was shot and killed last Wednesday as she and her father took a walk on the popular Pier 14.

Steinle’s killing has brought criticism down on this liberal city because Sanchez had been deported repeatedly and was out on the streets after San Francisco officials disregarded a request from immigration authorities to keep him locked up.

San Francisco is one of dozens of cities and counties across the country that do not fully cooperate with federal immigration authorities. The city goes so far as to promote itself as a “sanctuary” for people in the country illegally.

In a jailhouse interview with a TV station, Sanchez, a 45-year-old repeat drug offender, appeared to confirm that he came to the city because of its status as a sanctuary.

The case has prompted a flurry of criticism from ICE officials, politicians and commenters on social media, all of whom portrayed the slaying as a preventable tragedy.

“Most of the blame should fall squarely on the shoulders of the San Francisco sheriff, because his department had custody of him and made the choice to let him go without notifying ICE,” said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies, which wants tougher immigration enforcement.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the Virginia Republican who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, blamed sanctuary practices and the Obama administration, saying: “The tragic murder of Kate Steinle once again underscores the need to end these reckless policies.”

Mayor Ed Lee issued a statement saying city policy was never intended to protect “repeat, serious and violent felons.” He asked for federal and local agencies to review what happened.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris, a former San Francisco district attorney who is running for U.S. Senate, cautioned that when it comes to immigration, “our policy should not be informed by our collective outrage about one man’s conduct.”

Many other San Francisco politicians stayed quiet as mourners held a vigil at Pier 14 on the downtown waterfront, where the 32-year-old Steinle was gunned down, seemingly at random. She had recently moved to San Francisco.

While many cities have scaled back cooperation with ICE, few have gone as far as San Francisco.

For more than two decades, San Francisco has been considered a sanctuary for people in the U.S. illegally.

The city’s sanctuary law prohibits city employees from helping federal authorities with immigration investigations or arrests unless required by law or warrant. That said, the ordinance does not prohibit local law enforcement from informing ICE that they’ve arrested someone in the country illegally for a felony offense or who has prior felony convictions.

From jail, Sanchez told a KGO-TV reporter in a mix of Spanish and English that he found the gun wrapped in a T-shirt while sitting on a bench at the pier.

“So I picked it up and … it started to fire on its own,” Sanchez said, adding that he heard three shots go off.

Asked if he came to San Francisco because of its sanctuary status, he said yes.

“I only want to say that if the court wants to find me guilty, I wouldn’t get mad,” Sanchez said during the interview, in which he appeared confused and spoke incoherently at times.

International Falls man charged with stabbing man, assaulting officers
By Tom Olsen Today at 12:45 a.m.

 

An International Falls man allegedly spit blood on first responders, swung a knife in the air and threatened to “scalp” his arresting officer moments after stabbing another patron in a bar fight.

Matthew Howard Isensee, 26, was charged Thursday in State District Court in Koochiching County with five felony charges in connection with the incident Wednesday night at the Viking Bar in International Falls.

Authorities said Isensee twice stabbed a 31-year-old man from Fort Frances, Ontario, during the fracas. The victim, who has not been identified, suffered significant blood loss and was losing consciousness when he was transported to a local hospital, according to the charges.

Isensee is charged with first-degree assault, which carries a maximum of 20 years in prison. He’s also facing lesser charges of second-degree assault, fourth-degree assault of a peace officer and emergency medical personnel, and making threats of violence.

According to the charges:

International Falls police were called to the bar, 412 Third St., at 10:42 p.m. on the report of an assault. The first officer on the scene encountered several patrons in the back of the building, where two people were holding Isensee down.

The witnesses told the officer that Isensee had stabbed another patron and had a knife in his possession. Isensee began swinging the knife at the officer, who was able to kick it away and gain control of the suspect as back-up arrived.

Koochiching County sheriff’s deputies interviewed several witnesses, who reported that Isensee and the victim had been fighting. The witnesses said the fight appeared to be over when Isensee produced the knife and attacked the other man.

The victim, identified only by initials D.N.A., was stabbed twice in the right arm. He was treated for injuries at the Rainy Lake Medical Center in International Falls and then was transported to Fort Frances for further medical attention,

Isensee also was transported to the hospital, where authorities said he spit blood on both an officer and an emergency medical technician.

While speaking to an officer, Isensee allegedly made several threats, telling the officer: “I’ll find you when I get out of prison and I’ll … scalp you” and “I’ve seen you at Super One. I’ll … nail you right outside the door.”

Isensee has a significant criminal history dating back to at least 2007, according to a check of Minnesota court records. He has convictions for fourth-degree assault of a peace officer, fifth-degree assault, domestic assault, theft of a motor vehicle and disorderly conduct.

Isensee remains under supervision of the Minnesota Department of Corrections related to a 2013 conviction for making terroristic threats, for which he served a 21-month prison sentence.

Isensee is being held without bail at the Koochiching County Jail. County Attorney Jeff Naglosky said he is subject to a DOC hold because the new charges are a possible parole violation.

His next court appearance is scheduled for July 13.

Libtardia on steroids. I’m thinking the DFL would like to see a hammer and sickle flag.

As long as we’re discussing flags, what about Minnesota’s?
It, too, may fail to reflect current sensibilities.

By Judith Harrington JULY 2, 2015 — 10:15AM

The Minnesota state flag depicts a white man as a hardworking, rugged individualist, and an Indian riding a horse and holding a spear.

The current interest in the removal of the Confederate battle flag from public displays and store shelves provides an excellent opportunity to examine what the Minnesota state flag represents. The images on the flag are interpreted by state documents as innocuous symbols of the state’s history. A critical examination of what the flag is saying, however, should make Minnesotans reconsider what their state flag projects about their state.

The state flag of Minnesota is often something that is taken for granted. Thousands of people see the flag flying without giving it a second thought. First unfurled in 1893 (a date found on the flag), it has the state seal featured prominently in its center. The seal was based on a painting by Seth Eastman and was promoted by Gov. Henry Sibley; it did engender criticism when first used in 1858, but was not changed.

The “great symbolism” of the figures on the seal, as described by the Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State, include an American “Indian on horseback … riding due south and [representing] the Indian heritage of Minnesota. The Indian’s horse and spear and pioneer’s ax, rifle, and plow represent tools that were used for hunting and labor” (Minnesota Legislative Manual).

A close examination shows the central figure to be a white pioneer dressed in work clothes, wearing a wide-brim hat and pushing a plow. He is an iconic image of a hardworking, rugged individualist who works alone to chop the trees, plow the land and protect his home. He is looking over his shoulder at the Indian, who is riding a horse and holding a spear.

The contrast in the images of the figures is interesting: The image of the pioneer, a peaceful man who has laid down his gun and is plowing his field, is juxtaposed with the image of the Indian, who may still want to fight (his spear is at the ready) but who seems to be riding away. The pioneer/farmer is using a plow, a symbol of civilization. The white man is depicted as a “doer” who is entitled to the land, trees and water, empowered by the concept of Manifest Destiny. The Indian is the vacating tenant. A peaceful transition is suggested, but this ignores the tense and problematic history of conflict between European settlers and Indians, such as the complicated history of treaties and the Dakota War of 1862. More problematic, however, is the depiction of a racist, stereotyped Indian, who wears only a loin cloth and a feather.
The Minnesota state flag has engendered criticism — particularly in the past 50 years, as outlined on William Becker’s and Lee Herold’s website (see http://mnflag.tripod.com): In the civil-rights era of the 1960s, the rider on the horse was changed to a white rider for the state seal, but this was not used for the flag. The Minnesota Board of Human Rights pushed for changing the seal in 1968, but this did not go far; the two major newspapers in the state gave the proposal little regard (the St. Paul Pioneer Press decried the cost of any such change, while the Minneapolis Star said the Minnesota Board of Human Rights was “on the warpath” about the seal). An entirely new flag was proposed in 1989 by Becker and Herold, with a star and a simple white, blue and green wave design, but it has not gained sufficient support.

The history of Minnesota includes many different stories, and the state flag should represent those many voices or — at the very least — not be offensive to those who live there. There have been voices of protests for this flag ever since the seal was first used. It is time that the state flag is revised, perhaps through a statewide design contest. While the current flag may represent a certain view and vision of the past, it does not reflect the values and sensibilities of Minnesotans today.

Montana polygamist family applies for marriage license

"We just want to add legal legitimacy to an already happy, strong, loving family," said Nathan. (MTN News photo)“We just want to add legal legitimacy to an already happy, strong, loving family,” said Nathan. (MTN News photo)
BILLINGS -Given the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent ruling that same-sex marriage is legal in all 50 states, a Lockwood family is now looking to solidify rights of its own.We first told you about the Colliers in January of 2015 when the polygamist family appeared on an episode of the TLC show, “Sister Wives.”The polyamorous movement is a national push to allow marriage between multiple partners.

Nathan Collier and his two wives, Vicki and Christine, said Tuesday that they are simply looking for equality.Nathan is legally married to Vicki, but also wants to legally wed Christine.

On Tuesday, Nathan and Christine traveled to the Yellowstone County Courthouse to see if they would be awarded the right to marry under the Marriage Equality Act.

Polygamy is illegal under Montana state law, and recognized as a misdemeanor offense.

“We just want to add legal legitimacy to an already happy, strong, loving family,” said Nathan.

As the two filled out their marriage application they were met with questions.

“There’s a spot on there where you put the dissolution date of your previous marriage and we put ‘not applicable,'” said Christine.

In fact, the couple was met with varied reaction from employees, who were caught off guard.

“So, are you legally married, you didn’t get divorced?” asked one clerk.

“We’ll have to deny that, let me go grab the other supervisor real quick so I can get confirmation but as far as I’m aware you can’t be married to two people at the same time,” said another clerk.

The Colliers were initially denied the license, and the clerk later returned to tell the couple that they would have to check with the Montana Attorney General’s office.

When asked for comment, the Attorney General’s office referred MTN News to two sections of Montana law, stating polygamy is illegal.

“It’s two distinct marriages, it’s two distinct unions, and for us to come together and create family, what’s wrong with that?” said Christine. “I don’t understand why it’s looked upon and frowned upon as being obscene.”

The couple’s goal is to have their story heard.

The Colliers say if the state of Montana could only recognize their marriage as legal, it could be the catalyst for other states to follow suit.

“All we want is legal legitimacy. We aren’t asking anybody for anything else. We just want to give our marriage and our family the legitimacy that it deserves,” said Nathan.

MTN News is still awaiting to hear whether or not the marriage application was officially denied.

If it’s accepted, it would be the first in the nation.

 

Yup, the religion of peace. Where’s the outcry from the liar in chief and his queen?

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.

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

– 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.

Image result for robert james williams grand rapids mn

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.
