Leftist ‘Stop The Violence’ Organizers Arrested After Beating Colleague Half To Death

Anti-Violence Activists Charged In Vicious Attack – Tacoma News Tribune

Two “Stop the Violence” organizers allegedly beat one of their colleagues so severely that he vomited blood and was left unconscious in critical condition.

.

.
Nikole Ardeno and Emanuel Velez, both 30, accused their former roommate of stealing their property, and allegedly punched and kicked him in the street until he had seizures. Arrested moments later, Ardeno was still wearing the same “Stop the Violence” T-shirt she had on the night before when she coordinated a march protesting two recent shootings, Washington Police Chief Chris Luppino said.

The victim, Joshua Magraff, also is a community organizer with the anti-violence group, and shared an apartment with the suspects until recently.

Online court records don’t list lawyers for the defendants, who face a preliminary hearing Nov. 10 on charges of aggravated assault, conspiracy, simple assault and disorderly conduct.

Local “Stop the Violence” leader Suzanne Kelley said she hopes to hear from Ardeno, and insisted that “we don’t promote violence at all.”

“I can’t believe this is going on. I don’t want the community to get a negative effect from this because they back us,” Kelley said.

Police believe Ardeno and Velez attacked Magraff on Tuesday because he had gone to the apartment they had shared to collect his belongings. Ardeno and Velez had come to a police station about 20 minutes earlier, accusing Magraff of burglary, but police said he appeared to be taking only items that belonged to him as he moved out, Luppino said.

Magraff was still unconscious and in critical condition Wednesday at UPMC Mercy hospital in Pittsburgh, Luppino said. A hospital spokeswoman declined to provide an update Thursday, citing a policy against releasing information about crime victims.

Your Daley Gator Feel-Good Story O’ The Day

2nd Amendment Success Story: Armed Citizen Kills Serial Bank Robber, Another Arrested – Universal Free Press

The duo behind a rash of Phoenix bank robberies is out of business, with one now dead and the other under arrest, thanks to the efforts of an armed local businessman.

.

.
On Wednesday, the Desert Schools Federal Credit Union was targeted by Lyndell Cherry, age 29 and Vincent Jones, age 21, who entered at around 2 p.m. and demanded money. The two had left the keys in the ignition and the engine of their getaway vehicle running, a mistake which proved to be their undoing.

While the robbery was taking place, one credit union employee was able to call Sean Quaid, who owns a business next door to the credit union and told him what was happening. Quaid grabbed his gun and ran outside. After determining which was the likely vehicle of the perpetrators, Quaid removed the keys from the ignition.

When attempting their getaway, Cherry and Jones ran outside to their car and found they had no keys. They went back inside to see if they might have dropped them somewhere along the way, even going as far as searching a woman’s purse inside to see if she might have picked them up.

With time running out, the robbers ran back outside and accosted a couple in a Chevy pickup, with Jones pointing his gun and demanding their vehicle. At that point, Quaid stepped in, ordering the felonious pair to stop. It was then that Cherry reportedly spun around and aimed his gun at Quaid, who fired first, striking Cherry.

Jones jumped into the truck and drove off, crashing into several cars in the shopping center along the way as he made his way out into traffic. He reportedly ran a red light and collided with a minivan, which caused both vehicles to crash into an adjacent brick wall. Jones then bailed out of the stolen truck but was apprehended by police soon afterwards.

Fortunately no one was injured in the melee, other than the fatally shot Cherry. Unsurprisingly, Jones is reported to have still lived with his mother prior to taking up residence at his new home, at the Arizona taxpayer’s expense.

In addition to the multiple charges associated with this robbery, Jones admitted to police that the pair had also committed other robberies previously. He will not only face those charges, but he is also looking at six counts of kidnapping, one of aggravated assault, and one of first-degree murder for the death of Cherry.

It was not a good day for Cherry or Jones. It was a good day however for the Second Amendment, the people of Arizona and Sean Quaid, a hero who stood up and took action, and possibly saved innocent lives in the process.

Texas Woman Gets 10 Years For Keeping Father’s Corpse In Storage, Collecting His Social Security For Decades

Woman Kept Father’s Mummified Corpse In Storage, Collected His Social Security For Two Decades – Washington Free Beacon

.

.
A Texas woman was sentenced to 10 years in prison after stealing her father’s Social Security benefits for two decades as she kept his mummified corpse in a storage unit along with his car.

Judith Maria Broughton forged her father’s signature and had more $245,226 of his retirement benefits deposited into a joint banking account, after he died in 1990. His body was rotting in a storage unit she leased in Kentucky until it was discovered in January.

From the Social Security Administration’s Office of Inspector General:

On July 3, 2014, Broughton pleaded guilty to a one count Information charging her with willfully and knowingly stealing Social Security Administration Retirement Insurance Benefits. By pleading guilty, Broughton admitted that she forged her father’s signature causing SSA benefits paid in the name of her father, Luther D. Broughton, to be electronically deposited into a joint checking account. From June 1990 to August 2011, she collected the funds deposited into the account even after his death. Broughton further admitted to converting those monies to her own personal use.

According to court records, Luther Broughton died in June 1990 and the defendant leased a storage unit in Lexington, KY, to conceal his death. A search of the storage unit on January 8, 2014, revealed the mummified remains of Luther D. Broughton as well as his personal belongings including an automobile. Also, the defendant’s mother, Mary Elizabeth Broughton’s, Social Security benefits were being electronically deposited into a joint checking account with the defendant. Mary Elizabeth Broughton’s whereabouts have not been determined and her SSA benefits have been suspended.

Noted dog abuser gets it in the end

From Bearing Arms a story of how Karma can be a wonderful thing

Adell Ziegler is a deplorable human being.

He bragged about burning a Jack Russell terrier puppy  in 2012 after his arrest, and received the maximum sentence for his crime without showing any sincere signs of remorse for his brutality.

As a result, I’m having a hard time getting too upset over his recent shooting .

Adell Ziegler, 21, who served a brief state prison term for setting fire to a Jack Russell terrier that came to be known as Phoenix, was hospitalized after being shot Monday morning on Humboldt Parkway, two Buffalo police officials confirmed for The Buffalo News.

Ziegler was shot at 9:10 a.m. while in the 600 block of Humboldt. He was taken to Erie County Medical Center for treatment of gunshot wounds to his groin and buttocks. He was listed in stable condition at the hospital.

Phoenix could not be reached for comment, but I think the little guy would approve

Michigan Healthcare Providers Defraud Medicaid To The Tune Of $29M

Medicaid Scam In Michigan Takes $29 Million From Taxpayers – Daily Caller

.

.
Health care providers defrauded Medicaid to the tune of $29 million by coordinating with a day care center for mentally ill adults to steal patient information, the Washington Examiner reports.

Abdul Malik Al-Jumail and his daughter Jamella Al-Jumail created a series of fake health companies, and then collaborated closely with Felicar Williams, 51, who ran the day care center. Felicar would steal patient information, the Jumails would file false claims, and then provide kickbacks to Felicar. Many complex procedures for mental health were billed that were simply never provided.

Sometimes the Jumails would even fabricate entire medical records if necessary to gain reimbursement, showing how patients desperately needed treatment, and how their companies provided care. All three individuals involved are now in prison. The actual sentencing, however, hasn’t yet been scheduled. Two others, Mohammed Sadiq and Philandis Thomas, are charged in the indictment and scheduled for trial later this month. Another individual remains on the loose.

A 61-year-old psychiatrist, Carey Vigor, was also named in the indictment, but was later acquitted by the jury.

As the investigation by the Department of Health and Human Services inspector general (HHS-OIG) deepened and Malik Al-Jumail was promptly arrested, his daughter panicked and instructed an employee to burn the falsified medical records. In total, they siphoned off $29 million dollars in the scam.

However, since its inception in 2007, the HHS-OIG has worked closely with the Department of Justice and the FBI, among others. These agencies together work in the Medicare Fraud Task Force, and together, they have recuperated approximately $14.9 billion dollars. The task force has charged almost 2,000 individuals and operates in 9 cities across the United States.

With this recent case in mind, the HHS Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services are joining with the HHS-OIG to further crackdown on fraud.

Corruption Update: Obama Lackey Pleads Guilty To Stealing $843,000 In Taxpayer Funds

HUD Official Pleads Guilty To Stealing $843,000 In Taxpayer Funds – Daily Mail

.

.
Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme.

Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

Thompson scheme went undetected for nearly a year. To conceal his fraud, he fabricated settlement documents with false sales prices and even buyer names.

“Brian Thompson exploited his government job to rob the American taxpayer of more than $800,000,” said U.S. Attorney Ronald Machen. “This crooked HUD employee diverted the proceeds of real estate sales from the U.S. Treasury to his own pockets through lies and trickery. He now faces serious prison time as a result of criminal breach of the public trust.”

By serious prison time, Machen means between 33 and 41 months in prison, which Thompson got through a plea agreement. The maximum sentence for his crime – technically wire fraud – is 20 years. He also has to pay back all the money to the federal government, and, according to the Department of Justice release, “is subject to a forfeiture money judgment in the amount of $645,700.”

Thompson worked for HUD’s Office of Loan Guarantee for Native American programs, which helps Native Americans get access to home mortgage financing. “Because of the unique status of Indian lands being held in Trust, Native American homeownership has historically been an underserved market. Working with an expanding network of private sector and tribal partners, the [Indian Home Loan Guarantee] Program endeavors to increase access to capital for Native Americans and provide private funding opportunities for tribal housing agencies,” its website explains.

“When we learn of HUD employees who engage in fraud, and in this instance elect to enrich themselves at the expense of a HUD program designed to ensure that Native Americans are provided the American dream of home ownership, we vigorously investigate these allegations in order to bring the employees to justice and remove them from current and future employment with HUD and the Federal Government,” said Special Agent Cary Rubenstein.

Thompson is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 7, 2015.
