Manhattan Judge To Harlem Thug: ‘Black Lives Don’t Matter To Black People With Guns’

Judge Rips Thug: ‘Black Lives Don’t Matter To Black People With Guns’ – New York Post

.

.
A Manhattan judge on Tuesday lashed into a Harlem man convicted of attempted murder – telling him that “black lives don’t matter to black people with guns” before tossing him in prison for 24 to 26 years.

“Black lives matter,” Justice Edward McLaughlin told defendant Tareek Arnold, 24, as he sentenced him in Manhattan Supreme Court.

“I have heard it, I know it, but the sad fact is in this courtroom, so often what happens is manifestations of the fact that black lives don’t matter to black people with guns.”

Arnold, who is black, shot rival Jamal McCaskill, also black, four times at close range in the summer of 2015. He also has a prior gun possession conviction.

Prosecutor Meghan Hast asked for the maximum, arguing that “but for extreme luck, this would have been a homicide.”

Bizarrely, McCaskill, 39, testified for the defense and insisted that Arnold wasn’t the culprit even though the Harlem shooting was caught on surveillance video.

That spurred McLaughlin to also lash into the victim, who was in court Tuesday sitting with Arnold’s family.

“The video shows that Mr. McCaskill is an abject liar,” said the judge, who has presided over hundreds of gun cases and often rails against the city’s endemic gang violence.

After cops nabbed Arnold for the shooting, he escaped with his hands cuffed behind his back, using his shoulder to shove an officer to the ground. He was on the lam for almost a month. The jury also convicted him of escape, gun possession and assault.

Defense lawyer Mark Jankowitz requested the minimum sentence of 10 years, arguing that Arnold’s 1-year-old son would be without a father.

McLaughlin demurred: “Do not ask a judge in this room, in this building, or in this system to somehow make amends for the people who commit violent acts and who by their violent acts wind up leaving people orphaned, abandoned, fatherless, etc.”

The judge then handed down the stiff sentence.

12 Detroit School Principals Charged With Bribery By Feds

Feds Charge 12 Detroit School Principals With Bribery – USA Today

.

.
In its latest crackdown on school corruption here, the federal government Tuesday dropped a legal bomb on 12 current and former principals, one administrator and a vendor – all charged with running a nearly $1 million bribery and kickback scheme involving school supplies that rarely were delivered.

Among those charged: Ronald Alexander, principal at Charles L. Spain Elementary-Middle School that’s scheduled to receive more than $500,000 in donations from TV talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. Alexander’s charge, unrelated to DeGeneres’ announcement in February, is bribery for allegedly pocketing $23,000 money from Norman Shy in exchange for using the owner of Allstate Sales as a school-supply vendor, according to federal court records.

Shy, 74, of Franklin, Mich., is at the heart of the accusations. For 13 years, he is accused of paying $908,500 in kickbacks and bribes to at least a dozen Detroit Public Schools principals, scamming schools to the tune of $2.7 million with the help of those principals, prosecutors allege. Each defendant faces up to five years in prison and up to $250,000 in fines.

The announcement came nearly two months after ex-principal Kenyetta Wilbourn Snapp, once hailed as a rising education star and turnaround specialist in city schools, pleaded guilty to bribery. Snapp admitted she pocketed a $58,050 bribe from a vendor and spent it on herself while working for the embattled Education Achievement Authority, a state-formed agency that was supposed to help Detroit’s most troubled schools.

News of the larger corruption case comes at a critical time as the state grapples with fixing the finances of the struggling Detroit district, the largest school system in Michigan. The schools have been under the control of a state-appointed emergency manager since 2009 and have accumulated an operating deficit of at least $515 million.

Last week, Michigan lawmakers passed $48.7 million in emergency financing to ensure that the school system doesn’t run out of cash early next month. They also put the district under the authority of a financial review commission.

“This is exactly why House Republicans were so adamant that strong fiscal oversight be a prerequisite to any additional state funding for Detroit’s corrupt and broken school administration,” state Rep. Kevin Cotter, a Republican from Mount Pleasant and speaker of the state House, said in a news release Tuesday. “And it is why we will continue to insist that strong financial and academic reforms be a part of any long-term solution to decades of DPS failures.”

U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade announced the sweeping charges at a news conference, calling the case “a punch in the gut.”

She stressed that the charges have nothing to do with the schools’ existing financial troubles or the political debate surrounding whether the state should help the city’s struggling school system.

“Public corruption never comes at a good time,” McQuade said. “This case is not about DPS. It is not about emergency managers. It is about these 14 individuals who breached their trust.”

The charges stem from a 2-year-old audit of the Education Achievement Authority, she said. That audit raised red flags, including one that led to Snapp’s eventual indictment.

Snapp, who is set to be sentenced June 1, faces up to 46 months in prison for bribery. Another women, Paulette Horton, an independent contractor who was involved in a deal to provide tutoring services at two high schools, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit program bribery. The 60-year-old consultant admitted that she was the middleman who handed over bribes to Snapp.

Vendor Glynis Thornton also pleaded guilty in January, admitting she gave Snapp money in exchange for awarding her company the tutoring contract. In her guilty plea, Thornton explained how the scheme worked: Thornton would give an independent contractor the bribe money for Snapp, that contractor would meet Snapp at a bank, give her the money, and keep some for herself.

McQuade would not say whether Snapp’s cooperation led to any of the new charges, only that the Education Achievement Authority investigation revealed more evidence of Detroit school officials’ wrongdoing.

McQuade would not say whether Snapp’s cooperation led to any of the new charges, only that the Education Achievement Authority investigation revealed more evidence of Detroit school officials’ wrongdoing.

Among those charged Tuesday was Detroit resident Clara Flowers, 61, an assistant superintendent in the schools’ Office of Specialized Student Services. She is charged with pocketing $324,785 in kickbacks from Shy for using him as a school-supply vendor.

The kickbacks came in the form of cash, gift cards and payments to contractors who put a new roof on Flowers’ house, painted it and did gutter work.

Flowers first used Shy sometime before 2009, when as principal of Henderson Academy she chose his company as that school’s school-supply vendor. She would continue to use Shy as a vendor when she became an assistant superintendent.

Shy maintained a ledger to keep track of how much money he owed Flowers in kickbacks, according to court documents. The two regularly met to discuss how much Flowers was owed for her favors, and Shy was careful not to get caught, disguising his payments to Flowers in a variety of methods.

The Free Press attempted to contact lawyers for all 14 defendants. Only one offered to comment.

Most were unavailable. Two declined comment, saying it was too premature to discuss the case.

“Let’s not rush to judgment. These are merely allegations,” said Doraid Elder, who is representing Stanley Johnson, 62. The former principal of Hutchinson Elementary-Middle School is charged with accepting $84,170 in kickbacks.

“I don’t want people to forget that he’s put over two decades of his heart and soul into giving kids the best education possible,” Elder said of Johnson.

Johnson ordered school supplies from Shy then submitted false invoices to DPS, which in turn paid for goods that were rarely delivered, according to court documents. Shy would secretly funnel money back to Johnson by issuing payments to sham companies that Johnson created to conceal the kickbacks, prosecutors allege.

Johnson is “obviously devastated by the charges,” Elder said.

“At times, he’s reached in his own pocket and paid for things to help get the kids certain resources that they normally would not be able to get,” Elder said. “He’s had decades of a stellar record. I’m sure this is not easy for the students, the parents nor the individuals charged.”

City school officials and the defendants are cooperating, McQuade said. They all were charged in a document known as an “information,” which is similar to an indictment but does not involve a grand jury.

Prosecutors often bring charges by way of an information in cases where the government believes a plea deal will be reached. McQuade would not comment on any prospective plea deals in this case.

The charges angered retired federal Judge Steven Rhodes, who is serving as the transition manager for Detroit Public Schools.

“I cannot overstate the outrage that I feel,” he said. The school system has suspended business with Shy and all of his companies.

School officials also have put new policies in place related to purchases, such as suspending all purchases by individual schools and requiring all school-based purchases to have central office approval.

“We want do whatever is necessary to prevent this from happening again,” Rhodes said.

The six principals who are current employees have been placed on unpaid administrative and replaced with new interim leaders, he said. The other principals already have left the district.

Likely Obama Supporter Steals BMW One Day After Trying To Buy It With His EBT Card

Florida Man ‘Steals $60,000 BMW A Day After He Tried To Buy It With Food Stamps And Dealership Turned Him Down’ – Daily Mail

A Florida man has been arrested after allegedly stealing a $60,000 BMW a day after a car dealership turned him down from buying it with food stamps.

Nicholas Jackson went to an auto dealership where managers declined his business when he tried to buy the BMW with a credit card and his Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card, authorities said.

On Thursday night, the Pompano Beach dealership was burglarized and the BMW was missing along with keys belonging to 60 other cars, according to the Martin County Sheriff’s Office.

.

.

.
Authorities said 36-year-old Jackson did not have money to fill the tank of the stolen BMW and subsequently ran out of gas at an intersection.

When officers responded to a suspicious person call on Friday morning, they found Jackson, the BMW and the stolen keys, according to the sheriff’s office.

Investigators were able to trace the BMW and the keys back to the Pompano Beach dealership.

Jackson has since been charged with grand theft auto and is being held in jail on a $20,000 bond.

Why Did Sheriff David Clarke Call John Kasich A ‘Rat Bastard’? (Videos)

Why Did Sheriff Clarke Call John Kasich A ‘Rat Bastard?’ – Politistick

Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Governor John Kasich tries to sell himself to the American people as “the adult in the room” and as level-headed.

But, video has surfaced of Kasich being anything but reasonable, rational, and adult-like. In fact, it shows him flat-out lying about and denigrating the character of a police officer while speaking at an EPA meeting.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, known as “The People’s Sheriff” happened upon a video that not only shows Kasich insulting a police officer as “an idiot,” it also shows that he flat out lied about what happened that day when he was pulled over in Columbus, Ohio for failing to yield to an emergency vehicle. (video below)

The stop occurred in 2008, before Kasich was elected governor of the state. Video footage clearly shows other cars following the law by slowing down and getting over into the other lane, but Kasich continues driving at normal speed and doesn’t even attempt to get over.

The officer in question, Officer Robert Barrett, pulled over the former congressman and interacted with him with the utmost respect. Barrett was polite as he explained the violation and as he told Kasich that he would have a mandatory court appearance as required by law.

When Kasich told the officer he didn’t see the police car that he passed improperly, that was pulled over on the side with its lights on, the officer responded, “It happens to everyone on occasion, sir. You kind of have to watch out.” The officer reassured Kasich that it was not that big of a deal, but according to Ohio law he would have to appear in court.

Ten days later, while speaking in front of Ohio EPA workers, John Kasich tells a much different story, making the officer a villain and calling him an idiot numerous times.
.

Have you ever been stopped by a policeman, who was an idiot?” he asked his audience. “I had this idiot pull me over on 315. Listen to this story. He says to me, you passed this emergency vehicle on the side of the road and you didn’t yield. I didn’t even see, where the heck was it. The last thing I would ever do would be to pass an emergency vehicle. Are you kidding me?”

Kasich continued, the policeman, “tells me if you don’t report to court, we are putting a warrant out for your arrest. He’s an idiot! We just can’t act that way, and what people resent is people who are in the government, who don’t treat the client with respect.”

.
This unwarranted attack on the character, intelligence, and professionalism of a police officer did not sit too well with Sheriff Clarke. On Wednesday, he tweeted exactly how he felt about what John Kasich did back in 2008.

Will they take him up on this challenge or keep Kasich’s treatment of a police officer who was just doing his job hidden?

While Kasich did eventually apologize, the apology came only after the video surfaced during his first term as governor and it went viral. The apology was done in a cowardly fashion, behind closed doors.

FBI Finally Figures Out That Guy Named Mohammad Stabbed A Bunch Of People Because He Was An Islamist

ISIS Inspired UC Merced Attacker Faisal Mohammad In Campus Stabbings, FBI Says – International Business Times

.

.
A California college student who stabbed four people before being killed by police last year was inspired by the Islamic State group – also known as ISIS – the FBI said late Thursday. Faisal Mohammad was probably “self-radicalized” and was not in direct contact with the militant group, authorities reportedly said.

The FBI released a statement saying a review of the attacker’s electronic devices found that he was motivated by terrorist propaganda he found online before launching the Nov. 4 attack at the University of California, Merced. The agency reportedly said Mohammad visited ISIS and other extremist websites just weeks before the attack.

“Every indication is that Mohammad acted on his own,” Gina Swankie, a spokeswoman for the FBI’s Sacramento field office, said in a statement, according to the Associated Press. “It may never be possible to definitively determine why he chose to attack people on the U.C. Merced Campus.”

Daniel Mayfield, an attorney representing Mohammad’s family, told The Los Angeles Times that the FBI’s discovery of ISIS propaganda “was new information.” He also said that the nature of the pro-ISIS propaganda on Mohammad’s computer was unclear from the FBI’s brief statement.

“It could be anything from a 17-year-old trolling the Internet to a class assignment to something nefarious,” Mayfield told the Times. “What can you say… until we get the computers back?”

The news of the ISIS links comes nearly four months after the San Bernardino attack that was carried out by a couple, who, like Mohammad, did not raise any red flags that put them on a watch list, and are also believed to be self-radicalized but inspired by ISIS. On Dec. 2, Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik opened fire at a staff training event, killing 14 people.

Democrat Prosecutor Known For Fighting Prostitution Charged With Paying For Sex Hundreds Of Times

Prosecutor Known For Fighting Prostitution Charged With Paying For Sex Hundreds Of Times – Washington Post

.

.
When it came to hiring prostitutes for sex, Stuart Dunnings III preferred escort websites such as Escort Vault and Backpage.com.

Most of the time, police say, Dunnings would meet the women at motels. Occasionally, they’d meet at a pimp’s house.

His was a ferocious habit, one that led the 63-year-old to shell out hundreds of dollars three or four times a week for a revolving cast of heroin-addled sex workers.

By the time he was arrested Monday outside a Lansing, Mich., coffee shop, Dunnings had racked up hundreds of illegal encounters in three Michigan counties between 2010 and 2015, according to an arrest affidavit.

But Dunnings wasn’t just any John, authorities say.

For the past 20 years, he’s been the top prosecutor for Ingham County, a man who put sex traffickers in jail and built a reputation as “an outspoken advocate for ending human trafficking and prostitution,” according to a statement released by Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette (R).

“This is not a going into Barnes and Noble and buying something as a client or a customer,” Schuette said. “This is an instance where an officer of the law, an officer of the court, the prosecutor in the capital city of Michigan has a responsibility to enforce the law, report crimes, but he did just the opposite. He was a participant in commercial sex activity.”

Dunnings faces 15 criminal charges across three counties, including willful neglect of duty and pandering. The latter charge stems from the prosecutor paying for sex with a woman who was seeking help resolving a child custody dispute, according to the affidavit.

He was also charged with 10 counts of engaging in the services of prostitutes, a misdemeanor, in Ingham, Clinton and Ionia counties.

After being processed in the Ingham County jail, Dunnings was arraigned and released on bond.

If convicted, he could spend more than 20 years behind bars, authorities told The Washington Post.

The prosecutor’s arrest was preceded by a year-long investigation by the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office, assisted by the FBI and the state attorney general’s office, authorities said.

“I’ve known Stuart for a long time,” Ingham County Sheriff Gene Wriggelsworth said at a news conference. “We’ve done some campaigning together. This was a huge betrayal of his trust, his oath of office, his service to the people of this county.”

Dunnings is a Democrat who was first elected in 1996. He is now the highest-paid elected official in Ingham County, with a salary of $132,000, according to the Lansing State Journal.

For much of his career as a prosecutor, he appeared to be an unlikely candidate for engaging in illegal activity.

In 2001, according to the Journal, Dunnings began prosecuting the city’s prostitution-related crimes. Chief among the prosecutor’s goals, the paper reported, was imposing harsher penalties on lawbreakers.

He took an aggressive approach to his job and quickly cracked down, impounding Johns’ vehicles and smacking prostitutes and their clients with felonies after three offenses, according to the Journal.

“In the first two years alone, his prosecutors charged 19 people with felonies and impounded 53 vehicles,” the paper reported.

Only seven years later, Dunnings had adopted the illegal behavior of the very people he was putting behind bars, according to the affidavit.

He met most of the sex workers online. Over time, he became increasingly involved with them, taking them to dinner, paying their bills, buying them groceries, and even revealing his identity as a prosecutor, according to the arrest affidavit.

He paid one woman’s YMCA membership and spent $80 a week for methodone treatments for her heroin addiction, the affidavit states.

Dunnings also shared a prostitute with his brother, Steven Dunnings, a Lansing attorney who is facing two charges of engaging in the services of a prostitute, according to the affidavit.

The prosecutor became involved with another woman in 2010 after she told him she had been the victim of domestic violence and sought assistance in a “custody matter,” the affidavit states.

Dunnings invited the woman to lunch on two occasions. During their second meeting, the affidavit states, Dunnings said he knew she was struggling financially and had a proposition: money for sex.

After initially declining his offer, the woman told investigators that she eventually felt she had no choice but to accept, fearing he might “cause her problems” if she backed out, according to the affidavit.

The woman – who estimated that the district attorney paid her $600 every two weeks – told investigators that “she would not have gone along with the commercial sex if Dunnings had not been the prosecutor,” the affidavit states.

Wriggelsworth, the sheriff, told the Journal that authorities were aware of “chatter” about Dunnings’s activities, but they lacked proof. A 2015 FBI investigation into an alleged trafficker eventually led authorities to Dunnings.

Before Dunnings was arraigned Monday, his lawyer, Michael Hocking, declined to comment, according to the Journal.

The paper reported that Hocking was overheard outside the courtroom telling one of Dunnings’s relatives that the attorney general’s motivations were political in nature. He repeated a variation of that line in court, the Journal reported, telling Magistrate Laura Millmore that the charges against his client were “somewhat of a political case” full of “titillating-type accusations.”

Schuette has called on Dunnings to resign, according to the Journal.

“We live in a time where people wonder if government actually works,” the attorney general said. “People wonder if the system is rigged. People wonder whether we have a ‘wink and a nod’ justice system where the chosen few skate and escape punishment because of who they know or because they hold an important position in government.”

“Well, let me be very direct and crystal clear,” he added. “The system in Michigan is not rigged. Not on my watch.”

Man Suspected Of Murdering 5 People Caught In Missouri – Turns Out To Be Illegal Alien

Suspect In 5 Murders In Kansas And Missouri Caught – CBS

.

.
A man suspected of fatally shooting four people at his neighbor’s home in Kansas before killing another man about 170 miles away in a rural Missouri house was taken into custody early Wednesday morning after an extensive manhunt, the Missouri Highway Patrol said.

The Highway Patrol told CBS News Pablo Antonio Serrano-Vitorino was arrested without incident near New Florence, Missouri. Troopers said he had a rifle on him.

The Kansas City Star reports Serrano-Vitorino was found lying on a hill just north of Interstate 70. CBS Jefferson City, Missouri affiliate KRCG-TV says he was apprehended in Danville, Missouri.

The Star reported the area where Serrano-Vitorino was nabbed is near a McDonald’s restaurant and several motels.

Serrano-Vitorino, a Mexican national who authorities said was in the country illegally, is accused of fatally shooting four men late Monday night at his neighbor’s home in Kansas City, Kansas. He was also wanted in connection with the shooting death of 49-year-old Randy Nordman in New Florence.

The manhunt, which included helicopters, police dogs and at least one SWAT team, began late Monday after the first shooting. One of the four men managed to call police before he died, but it’s unclear how the men knew each other or what may have prompted the shooting, Kansas City police officer Thomas Tomasic said.

The manhunt shifted Tuesday, when a truck Serrano-Vitorino was believed to be driving was found about 7 a.m. abandoned along I-70 in central Missouri, about 80 miles west of St. Louis.

About 25 minutes later, sheriff’s deputies responded to a shooting about 5 miles away at a Montgomery County home and found Nordman’s body, according to troopers. Highway Patrol Lt. Paul Reinsch said a witness who called 911 reported seeing a man running from Nordman’s property, launching a manhunt in the area.

The patrol said Tuesday that Serrano-Vitorino was considered dangerous and might have been armed with an AK-47.

Reinsch said investigators weren’t aware of any connection between Serrano-Vitorino and Nordman, whose home is near his family’s campground and a racetrack for remote-controlled cars.

KRCG reports investigators are looking into 40 leads associated with the case in Montgomery County.

Authorities haven’t released the names of the four Kansas victims. Serrano-Vitorino was charged with four counts of first-degree murder in their killings, Wyandotte County District Attorney Jerome Gorman said.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a statement Tuesday night that Serrano-Vitorino was deported from the U.S. in April 2004 and illegally re-entered “on an unknown date.” ICE said it would place a detainer on Serrano-Vitorino if he was taken into custody.

Mob Of 30 Afghan Migrants Chase Teenage Girls Through German Shopping Mall, Fight Cops Who Try To Arrest Them

Mob Of 30 Afghan Men Chase Teenage Girls Through German Shopping Mall, Sparking Huge Confrontation With Police – Daily Mail

A mob of 30 migrants chased three teenage girls through a German mall before threatening police officers, local media has reported.

The men, thought to be from Afghanistan, are said to have used their smartphones to film the girls at the Sophienhof mall in Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein state.

Police officers were called out after several shoppers reported that 30 men of ‘immigrant background’ were following the girls, aged 15, 16 and 17.

.

.
The men ‘insulted, threatened and sometimes injured’ the policemen as they tried to arrest some of the alleged perpetrators, Bild reported.

Four men, including the two main culprits, were later arrested but three of them have since been released due to ‘lack of grounds for detention’.

They are said to have resisted arrest and became violent with officers.

Businesses in the shopping mall have reported an ‘increasing number of thefts’ and customers being ‘molested’ by migrants.

Several other young girls have told police they were harassed too since the incident received media attention.

.

.
Interior Minister Stefan Studt said the incident was ‘unacceptable’ and that Germans ‘need to be able to live freely in this country.’

He warned against drawing comparisons to the mass molestation of women in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.

But FDP leader Wolfgang Kubicki said the newest incident should act as a wake up call that the country’s open border immigration policy was failing.

He called it the ‘opposite of integration’ and an example of how ‘parallel societies’ are being created in Germany as a result of the migrant influx.

7 People Murdered, 1 Injured In Kalamazoo, Michigan – Suspect Identified As Jason Dalton

7 Killed, 1 Injured After Multiple Shootings In Michigan – ABC News

.

.
At least seven people are dead and one injured following multiple shootings Saturday evening in the Kalamazoo, Michigan area. Police later said they believe a suspect is in custody.

The suspect has been identified as Jason Dalton, a 45-year-old white male from Kalamazoo, according to Chief Jeff Hadley of the Kalamazoo County Department of Public Safety.

Police said the suspect was driving a dark blue Chevy HHR. He has not been charged. Authorities were still in the process of interviewing the suspect at the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety Headquarters.

According to Michigan State Police F/Lt. Dale Hinz, the suspect was apprehended early Sunday morning at the intersection of Porter Street and East Ransom Street after a car matching the description was seen.

Authorities said the shootings began around 6 p.m. local time Saturday when a woman was shot outside of a vehicle in the parking lot of the Meadows Townhomes in Richland Township, located northeast of Kalamazoo. She is in critical condition and her children were not hit.

Around 10:15 p.m., two people were shot and killed in a vehicle in the parking lot of the Seelye Ford Dealership of Kalamazoo.

Then around 10:20 p.m., five people were shot and killed in the parking lot of a Cracker Barrel in Texas Township, southwest of Kalamazoo.

Authorities said there is no word on any connection between the victims or locations and the shooter, and the shootings appeared to be random.

A weapon was found in the vehicle, but police will not say what it was.

Armed Citizen Saves Cop From Vicious Youth Mob In Pennsylvania

Police: Gun Owner Saved Cop From Attack By Kids – Philadelphia Inquirer

.
…………….
Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood praised the efforts of licensed gun owner who came to the aid of a police officer.

.
Police are crediting a vigilant gun owner with saving the life of an Upper Darby cop Friday after he saw the officer being attacked and surrounded by a large group of teens.

“There were 40 kids. If it wasn’t for the good Samaritan stepping forward, he’d have been dead meat,” Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said. “There’s no doubt they would have attacked him.”

About 3 p.m. every weekday, from six to eight township police officers patrol the area near Upper Darby High School as nearly 4,000 kids pour out of the building on Lansdowne Avenue near School Lane.

Most kids and most days are good, Chitwood said.

Friday was not.

That afternoon alone, police responded to three fights in three locations near the school. When the dust settled, eight teens, ages 13 to 17, were charged with crimes, and two officers were injured so severely that it’s unclear when they’ll be able to return to work, Chitwood said.

The most egregious of the incidents took place on Wayne Avenue near Marshall Road, less than a mile from the high school.

An officer who broke up a fight between two teen boys that had attracted a large crowd at that location was holding one of the combatants at bay when the teen’s opponent attacked the officer, Chitwood said.

“As he breaks up the fight, he takes one kid and then the other jumps [on] him. Now he’s fighting two of them and he’s calling for an assist officer at the same time,” Chitwood said. “There’s a crowd of 40 or 50 kids watching the fight, and they all move in towards the officer.”

That’s when the good Samaritan, who lives on the block, came out of his house with a gun in his hand and told the teens to get away from the cop, Chitwood said.

“He had the gun in his hand, but he didn’t point it at the kids, he just told them to back off,” Chitwood said. “If this guy didn’t come out and come to the aid of the officer, this officer would have had significant problems.”

The 35-year-old gun owner, who has a concealed-carry permit, kept the group of teens at bay until responding officers arrived, Chitwood said.

Not only did the officer who tried to break up the fight suffer significant hand injuries, Chitwood said, but an officer who responded to the request for backup also suffered a major injury to a leg when he was kicked by one of the teens in the fight.

The two juveniles in that fight each were charged with aggravated assault on police, riot, harassment, and related offenses. They were remanded to the Delaware County juvenile detention facility in Lima, Chitwood said.

Six more youths were arrested for fighting around the same time that day at two other locations near the school, Chitwood said; one was sent to the juvenile detention facility and the other five were released to a parent or guardian. Six of the eight arrested students attend Upper Darby High. The seventh attends Beverly Hills Middle School; the eighth goes to a school in Ridley Township.

“There’s thousands of kids that walk to and from that school without a problem, but every once in a while you get these wannabe gangsters, and if they want to be gangsters, we’ll treat them like gangsters,” Chitwood said.

Since Friday, police said, after-school patrols around Upper Darby High have been doubled.

“Our goal is to make sure these kids get home safe,” Chitwood said. “I can’t emphasize it enough, but the majority of these kids are decent kids.”

Professor Cries Racism After Getting Busted For Traffic Offenses – Video Shows Nicest Cops In The World

Dashcam Shows Princeton Professor Who Cried Racism Experienced Staggeringly Cordial Arrest – Daily Caller

The dashcam arrest video showing police arrest a Princeton University professor this weekend paints a markedly different picture than the racist ordeal described by the professor, Imani Perry, in a 1,201-word Facebook rant.

Perry, a professor in Princeton’s African American studies department, also tweeted angrily about her arrest, but she appears to have since deleted her entire Twitter account.

A pair of Princeton, N.J. police officers busted Perry on Saturday morning for going 67 miles per hour in a zone where the posted speed limit is 45 miles per hour.

The officers then proceeded to arrest Perry because of a warrant for an outstanding parking ticket from three years ago. She still owed $130 for that infraction.

Police did not allow Perry to make any telephone calls before she was officially placed under arrest, she complained. The professor said she was rudely subjected to a brief frisking by a male police officer as well.

“This was my first time in handcuffs,” Perry wrote on Facebook. “They were very cold on my arthritic wrists. I have been thinking about how vulnerable they make you feel.”

Perry also righteously threw down the race card.

“Now, make no mistake, I do not believe I did anything wrong,” she wrote. “But even if I did, my position holds. The police treated me inappropriately and disproportionately. The fact of my blackness is not incidental to this matter.”

However, video of Perry’s arrest shows two of the nicest-appearing police officers you’d ever hope to meet straining to be diplomatic and generally participating in what may be the most cordial police interaction ever.
.

.
“Are you okay?” the male cop asks Perry at one point during the video, when she is in the police car.

“No,” a female voice – apparently Perry’s – responds.

“Are you hyperventilating?” the cop then asks.

The male officer then explains that everything will be easy and expedient “as long as you’ve got the money.”

In addition to the Princeton traffic troubles which led to her brief arrest, Perry also has an active Abington Township, Pa. traffic case in which she drove an unregistered automobile, according to Planet Princeton.

The Princeton professor also has an outstanding summons for failing to pay a parking ticket in Lower Merion, N.J.

In a second clip, which shows an earlier stage of Perry’s traffic stop, she tells a skeptical officer that she never received any sort of notice that she had a parking violation or a suspended license.
.

.
And here is Perry speeding down a narrow, tree-lined road, getting caught on radar and then getting initially busted.
.

.
In her Facebook rant, Perry cites institutionalized racism “from elementary school suspensions, to car purchases, to teachers recommending students for gifted and talented programs, to how often waiters visit your table in restaurants, to mortgages, to police stops and arrests.”

Perry, the parking ticket recipient who says she was ultimately able to pay her fine “without hesitation” to secure her release, also compares her fate to “poor Black, Indigenous, and Latino communities” which “experience disproportionate police surveillance, harassment, violence, and punishment.”

“I can say that what I experienced was far more likely because my skin is a deep brown, my nose is round, and my hair is coily,” Perry also claims.

The trio of YouTube clips were posted Thursday afternoon by Krystal Knapp, a reporter for Planet Princeton.

51 Muslim “Refugees” Beaten To A Pulp In Russia After Molesting Women At Night Club

Refugees Go Clubbing In Russia, Harass Girls, Wake Up In Hospital The Next Morning – Daily Caller

.

.
A group of 51 refugees were brutally assaulted outside a night club in Murmansk, Russia, after they groped and molested women at a night club Saturday.

The refugees had previously been ordered to leave Norway for “bad behavior” and tried their luck in Russia. What they didn’t realize when they went out clubbing in Murmansk is that Russians have less tolerance when it comes to sexual assault on local women than other European countries.

The refugees allegedly groped and harassed women in a similar manner as the assaults in Cologne on New Year’s Eve. A group of male Russian took them aside to “educate” them that “Cologne is 2,500 kilometers south of here.”

The refugees tried to flee but were quickly captured by the Russians. They then took them out to the street and gave them a beating they will remember. Police arrived to break up the fight but locals report that they threw a few punches at the refugees before arresting 33 of them. Eighteen refugees were in such bad condition they had to be take to the hospital.

Police decided to let the beatings slide and didn’t file a report. The only thing they could confirm was that there was “a mass brawl involving refugees.”

Leftist Mizzou Professor Who Called For ‘Some Muscle’ To Silence Journalist Is Charged With Assault

Fascist Mizzou Prof Who Smacked Journalist Has Been Charged With Assault – Right Scoop

.

.
We reported a lot about the fascist professor at the University of Missouri that smacked a photojournalist who was covering their racist temper tantrum last year.

Well, we can all sigh in relief because the totalitarian ginger has been charged with assault:
.

.
More from USA Today:
.

A misdemeanor assault charge was filed Monday against a University of Missouri assistant professor who received nationwide attention when she called for “some muscle” to help remove a student journalist from a campus protest in November.

Melissa Click, who works in Missouri’s communication department, faces a Class C misdemeanor simple assault charge for the incident, in which she was filmed having physical contact and berating a student journalist, according to the office of Columbia, Mo., prosecutor Steve Richey. The student was trying to conduct interviews at a site set up on the university’s quad by students protesting the treatment of African Americans by administrators.

A video of the confrontation, which was taken by student journalist Mark Schierbecker and went viral on the Internet, begins with a group of protesters yelling and pushing another student journalist, Tim Tai, who was trying to photograph the campsite. At the end of the video, Schierbecker approaches Click, who calls for “some muscle” to remove him from the protest area. She then appears to grab at Schierbecker’s camera.

Schierbecker filed a simple assault complaint with the campus police department days after the incident.

Richey’s office confirmed that charge has been filed but declined further comment. If convicted, Click could face up to a $300 fine and 15 days in jail.

The incident occurred as the campus had been embroiled in weeks of protests over school administrators’ handling of a series of a racially charged incidents on campus. Shortly before the confrontation, the state’s university system president, Tim Wolfe, and Missouri chancellor R. Bowen Loft announced their resignations. Click was at the campsite to show her support for the student protesters.

Under fire, Click resigned her courtesy appointment with the journalism school the day after the incident but remains an assistant professor in the university’s Department of Communication.

Yes, it’s a small victory, but I can dig it.

Two Chicago Thugs Learned The Hard Way That Good Guys With Guns Will Shoot Back – Daily Caller

.

.
Two thugs in Chicago were shot by a man with a legally concealed weapon during an attempted armed robbery on Wednesday.

The two criminals entered a T-Mobile store armed with guns and attempted to rob the store after pretending to shop. They learned, however, that bullets can go both ways when a store employee pulled out his gun and opened fire, according to ABC Chicago.

Both robbers fled from the hail of bullets rained down by the law-abiding citizen, but not before both were struck multiple times. Police took them into custody after they were rushed to the hospital. Both remain in serious condition.

Neil Tadros, the T-Mobile store manager, was very appreciative of his employee that was carrying his gun.

“I think concealed carry is a great opportunity for managers, workers, employees to protect themselves in these cases. And our employee did a great job to protect themselves and the other employee,” he said.

Crazed Islamo-Nazi Attempts To Assassinate Philadelphia Police Officer (Video)

Philadelphia: Police Shooter Confesses To Attempted ‘Execution’ For Islam – Breitbart

.
…………….

.
A gunman ambushed 33-year old Philadelphia police officer Jesse Hartnett on Thursday night. His attacker is in custody and claims it was an attempted “execution” in the name of Islam.

CBS News in Philadelphia reports Hartnett was sitting in his patrol car at around 11:30 PM when the attacker fired 13 shots through the driver’s side window at point-blank range. The CBS report describes the shooter as walking toward the police car while he fired. Three of the shots struck Hartnett’s arm. His injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.

“Shots fired! I’m shot! I’m bleeding heavily!” Hartnett called out on police radio, as can be heard in the CBS report:
.

.
Hartnett was able to return fire, and hit the as-yet unnamed suspect three times. Other offices swiftly caught the wounded assailant while attempting to flee the scene, and he has made a full confession, according to CBS. The confession reportedly describes Islam as part of the motive for the attack.

Police also recovered his weapon. The New York Daily News identifies it as a 9mm handgun.

Commissioner Ross said there is video of the entire attack. “This is absolutely one of the scariest things I’ve ever seen,” he declared. “I mean, this guy tried to execute the police officer. The officer had no idea he was coming. It’s amazing he’s alive.”

The shooter is described as a male in his 30s. According to a news description of the surveillance video, he was wearing a “long white frock and black pants” as he approached the police cruiser with his gun drawn. The current condition of the shooter has not been disclosed at the time of this writing.

Ross said Hartnett suffered “significant damage” to his arm, including nerve damage, but is awake and coherent. According to the New York Daily News, he underwent surgery early Friday at Presbyterian Hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

NJ.com cites Officer Hartnett’s social media profiles to describe him as a native of East Landsdowne, Pennsylvania, who attended Delaware County Community College, served in the U.S. Coast Guard for over a decade, and then became a four-year veteran of the police force.

CBS News reported late Friday morning that the FBI has become involved in the investigation.

Update, 11:05 AM EST: ABC News has published images of the attacker, from the surveillance video:

.
……………………..

.
……………………..

.
Update, 11:15 AM EST: Philly.com reports the shooter has been identified as Edward Archer, 30, of Yeadon.

Update, 1:15 PM: According to Commissioner Ross, the attacker pledged allegiance to the Islamic State.

Also, the gun used in the attack was reportedly stolen, which will be bad news for those who were frantically looking for a way to fold the incident into their gun-control narratives.

Update, 1:45 PM: Philly.com has some more details about Edward Archer, courtesy of his mother:
.

Reached at her home in Lansdowne, his mother, Valerie Holliday, said Archer was the eldest of seven children and suffered head injuries from playing football and a moped accident.

“He’s been acting kind of strange lately. He’s been talking to himself… laughing and mumbling,” Holliday said. “He’s been hearing voices in his head. We asked him to get medical help.”

She said her son is devout Muslim who has practiced the faith “for a long time.”

“He’s going through a lot lately,” Holliday said, adding Archer believed he was targeted by police.

.
There are some good reasons the police might have “targeted” Edward:
.

Archer was scheduled to be sentenced Monday in a Delaware County case, according to court records. He was found guilty in a November nonjury trial of forging documents, careless driving, driving with a suspended or revoked license and other related offenses.

In Philadelphia, he was sentenced in March to nine to 23 months in jail and two years probation in an assault case. He was charged with aggravated assault, conspiracy, firearms offenses and terroristic threats for a January 2012 incident but pleaded guilty to simple assault.

.
Here’s a thought: maybe we should put more effort into enforcing existing laws, rather than passing a boatload of new ones. Of course, the existing laws involve difficult duties such as catching and imprisoning violent criminals, and protecting the nation from terrorist threats – both of which are pursuits that often infuriate the cult of political correctness.

It’s much easier to pass new laws that either do nothing of substance, or involve pushing around decent law-abiding taxpayers. Telling a rape victim she shouldn’t have a gun to defend herself is far easier than keeping someone imprisoned for assault.

Philly.com also tells us a bit more about the wounded Officer Jesse Hartnett, hailed as a “true hero” by fellow officers. He actually got out of his car and pursued the suspect on foot, after getting sprayed with 13 bullets and taking three hits in the arm. His father Robert described Hartnett as “a very quality young man.” On that, I think we can all agree.

Missouri Department Of Social Services Bureaucrat Stole $52,000 Worth Of Food Stamps

Food Stamps Ripped Off By Walmart-Shopping Bureaucrat – Daily Caller

.
…………….

.
Missouri Department of Social Services eligibility specialist Pamela O’Dell faces criminal charges after she went on a shopping spree with $52,000 worth of food stamps she stole, according to a news release from the Department of Justice.

O’Dell was responsible for processing Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program applications and files and used her position to replace participants’ home addresses with her own government office address in Dunklin County, Mo., when participants opted out of the program. That office then issued new Electronic Benefit Transfer or EBT cards using O’Dell’s information.

O’Dell did this from 2009 to 2014. She spent the benefits at a local Walmart and a grocery store in Kansas, according to the DOJ.

A federal grand jury in Cape Girardeau, Mo., indicted her on one felony count of mail fraud. O’Dell, if convicted, faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and fines up to $250,000.

Man Busted For Setting Houston Mosque Fire On Christmas Day Is A Devout Muslim

Man Charged With Setting Houston Mosque Fire Was A Devout Attendee – Houston Chronicle

.
……………………………

.
A Houston man has been arrested in connection with a suspected arson at a mosque on Christmas Day.

A spokeswoman for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives confirmed that the man was arrested early Wednesday, sometime after midnight, and appeared in court 7 a.m. Wednesday.

The suspect, Gary Nathaniel Moore, 37, of Houston, appeared in court at 7 a.m., spokeswoman Nicole Strong said.

According to a charging instrument released by the Harris County District Clerk, Moore told investigators at the scene that he has attended the mosque for five years, coming five times per day to pray seven days per week.

Moore told investigators he had been at the mosque earlier on Dec. 25 to pray, and had left at about 2 p.m. to go home. Moore told investigators he was the last person to leave the mosque and saw no smoke or other signs of fire when he left. He had returned to the scene after hearing about the fire from a friend.

Though the suspect said he was a regular at the mosque, MJ Khan, president of the Islamic Society of Greater Houston, which operates the mosque, said he was unfamiliar with Moore. “We are just looking into it ourselves,” he said Wednesday morning after learning of the arrest.

“We are really very surprised and saddened by this whole thing,” said Khan.

Using surveillance video from multiple businesses nearby, investigators were able to identify Moore, according to records. A search warrant of his home was conducted, in which investigators recovered a backpack and clothing that seemingly matched that which was seen in surveillance footage, as well as one half of a two-pack of charcoal lighter fluid bottles that seemed to match another lighter fluid bottle found inside the mosque.

Bond for Moore has been set at $100,000.

It took about 80 firefighters to put out the two-alarm blaze at the storefront mosque in Savoy Plaza, near Wilcrest Drive and West Bellfort.

Cops: Mom Shaved Daughter’s Head, Convinced Her She Had Cancer To Scam Strangers – American Mirror

.
……………………..

.
Police allege Texas mother Juanita Garcia used her 7-year-old daughter to scam people by telling them the girl is stricken with cancer, and has only months to live.

Garcia allegedly organized fundraisers and told people both in person and through social media that her daughter her daughter was diagnosed with cancer, and fighting for her life, KHOU reports.

Child Protective Services became suspicious of Garcia and reported to the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s officials on Oct. 22 the 46-year-old had been approaching people for donations and organized fundraisers for alleged cancer treatments for her daughter.

“Through the course of the investigation, investigators discovered that seven year old child had been medically evaluated, and no illness had been found,” according to a media release posted to the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.

“During questioning, Garcia admitted to investigators that her daughter had never been diagnosed with cancer, and that she had obtained monetary donations from various persons.”

Sheriff’s officials arrested Garcia Dec. 9 on a child exploitation charge, a third degree felony. Images posted with the media release show Garcia went as far as shaving the young girl’s head, and dressed her in cancer awareness clothing to gain sympathy in Facebook posts.

In one image, the young girl poses with a shirt that reads: “I’m NOT a boy. I’m a girl fighting cancer.”

KGBT reports Garcia allegedly convinced the child she had cancer in June, and the girl believed she was destined to die soon.

“My princess fighting her cancer I know she will prayers for my baby,” Garcia posted to Facebook June 24, according to the site.

Child Protective Services took custody of the young girl. Garcia is lodged in the Hidalgo County Adult Detention Center on a $10,000 bond after her arraignment on the exploitation charge.

Hidalgo Sgt. J.P. Rodriguez told KRMG the situation shows why people should pay close attention to where their charitable donations are going.

“We don’t want to discourage people to participate in those fundraisers, but we do want them to be cautious,” he said, adding that it’s critical to “confirm information before donating to strangers.”

“This makes me sick,” Samantha Compton posted to the sheriff’s Facebook post. “My 4-year-old daughter has fought adult brain cancers since she was 18 months old! No amount of money is worth a child having cancer and the kids that do have cancer and their family needs help can’t get it because of people like her. This makes me so angry!”

“How rotten and low-down can one get using a child like this,” Dora Robles added.

“Sick woman needs to get a job and quit begging and living off of people and her child,” Manuel Guajardo wrote. “Where is the father?”

“There should be a hate or disgust button to click on,” Carol Ann Kane posted. “Disgusting and a pathetic display of motherhood. Just because you have a child doesn’t make you a ‘parent.’ That’s a role you have to earn. Appalling!”
