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!”

Obama’s Favorite Traitor To Finally Face Court Martial On Desertion Charges

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl Heads To Court Martial On Desertion Charges – Hot Air

.

.
Back in September we noted that the Army had reviewed the case of Bowe Bergdahl and recommended a charge of Misbehavior Before the Enemy. They later released their suggestions for how to handle his prosecution and pushed for no jail time after his lengthy period of capture. It was further determined that the Sergeant should face a Special Court Martial where he would likely get a relatively lenient punishment. As it turns out, those were only suggested proposals and those calls have been rejected by Gen. Robert B. Abrams of Army Forces Command. He’s ordered the case to move forward and Bergdahl will face a full Court Martial on charges of desertion among other things. (New York Times)

.

A top Army commander on Monday ordered that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl face a court-martial on charges of desertion and endangering troops stemming from his decision to leave his outpost in 2009, a move that prompted a huge manhunt in the wilds of eastern Afghanistan and landed him in nearly five years of harsh Taliban captivity.

The decision by Gen. Robert B. Abrams, head of Army Forces Command at Fort Bragg, N.C., means that Sergeant Bergdahl, 29, faces a possible life sentence. That is a far more serious penalty than had been recommended by the Army’s investigating officer, who testified at the sergeant’s preliminary hearing in September that prison would be “inappropriate.”

According to Sergeant Bergdahl’s defense lawyers, the Army lawyer who presided over the preliminary hearing also recommended that he face neither jail time nor a punitive discharge and that he go before an intermediate tribunal known as a “special court-martial,” where the most severe penalty possible would be a year of confinement.

.
This changes the game entirely in terms of Bergdahl’s ultimate fate. The maximum penalty for desertion during time of war is death, though the only soldier to be executed for this in the modern era was Private Eddie Slovik in 1945. Absent a death sentence, Bergdahl could easily face life in prison without the possibility of parole, but that’s still not a given. The officers who sit on the jury and the judge handling the case will make the ultimate determination, and as Doug Mataconis pointed out yesterday, Bowe could still wind up being out of the service (albeit at a lower rank) and back home in fairly short order.
.

In terms of the case against Bergdahl himself, the maximum charge he faces is life in prison but his ultimately punishment could end up being less severe depending upon both how the jury of officers that ultimately hears Bergdahl’s case views the case and how any subsequent appeals may go assuming that he’s convicted. Given the facts as we know them, acquittal seems unlikely but Bergdahl could ultimately receive a sentence far less than life in a military prison, and indeed could even end up getting off with a sentence as relatively light as loss of rank and a dishonorable discharge. Additionally, his ultimate fate is likely to take years to determine since the process is likely to outlast the Obama Administration itself.

.
Two points here: first of all, Doug brings up an interesting point in terms of politics. The reality is that this subject is now completely outside the hands of politicians and elected officials, with the singular exception of the President should he choose to extend a pardon. But that doesn’t mean that they won’t be talking about it on the campaign trail, particularly with the country’s renewed focus on terrorist groups and the candidates vying to show how tough they can be. The Court Martial is going to take quite a while if previous history (such as Chelsea Manning) is anything to go by. We’ll likely be well into the general election by the time this show reaches a crescendo and Hillary, along with her eventual GOP opponent, will be asked about it.

As to the final determination, it seems almost impossible that Bergdahl will be found innocent on all charges. Too much of this case has already been tried in the media and the court of public opinion and there seems to be too much evidence for him to get off without a conviction on something. Will it be desertion? That’s actually an open question because no matter how obvious it may seem to outside observers, the definitions are tricky. A good defense team may be able to make a case based on intent and the soldier’s state of mind when he walked off his post which could introduce enough doubt in the jury’s minds to avoid the most serious charge. And even if he is convicted on all or most of the charges, the defense will certainly be reminding the court that Bergdahl has already served a rather severe sentence in captivity for his actions… far worse than he would get in any SuperMax.

In a best case scenario for the defense, he could conceivably still just be busted down to E-1 and given a dishonorable discharge and lose all of his benefits. Would that be justice? I really don’t know. We’ll have to leave it up to the jury.

Behold, The Leftist-Like Tolerance Of Islam: Texas Imam Forced To Resign For Backing Trump’s ‘Muslim Ban’

Zero Tolerance: Texas Imam Forced To Resign For Backing Trump’s ‘Muslim Ban’; Says He’s Not Alone – BizPac Review

What happened to a Texas imam proved once again that Islam is an intolerant religion – even in secular matters.

Either toe the line or you’re out.

Dr. Nidal Alsayyed, religious director of the Islamic Society of Triplex in Beaumont, Texas, announced Monday that he supported Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s call for a temporary ban on Muslim refugees entering the United States.

“We American Muslims need to be sincere to our religion and to the country we are living in,” he told local station 12 News Now. “Peace comes before religion.”

He reiterated his position on national TV Wednesday night.

The following day, Alsayyed was out.

“Don’t get me involved in any political games in the name of religion. I am not here a political man,” he told KDFM News.

Yet, it was his political opinion that caused him to lose his position as imam.

“Sadly, it’s Clinton versus Trump,” he said.

“I think any future candidates, presidents who do not support the fact that we need to be more safe and more cautious about whom to bring into this country, whether a Muslim or not,” Dr. Alsayyed said.

He insisted his comments had everything to do with peace and safety and nothing to do with politics, adding that Trump’s comments are in line with the Islamic religion.

“The text of the holy Qur’an says the loss of one life is equivalent to killing the whole mankind,” he said.

The mass shooting in San Bernardino by Islamic terrorists helped to gel his opinion on the matter.

“But the way it happens when you see this mass shooting and you see some people coming with such a very peaceful background and all of the sudden the intelligences themselves, the agencies are not able to figure out what’s happening, why all of a sudden this guy or this girl or that lady open fire and kill 15 people, because American Muslims are not doing their job in the country. So we need to stop, we need to stop taking new ones until we fix the existing situation,” Alsayyed said.

He soon discovered that he wasn’t the only local imam to lose his position over politics.

“I came to know this morning from some close contacts and friends over 102 Imams, religious people in Houston, were fired and forced to basically leave their jobs, leave their mosques only because they did not get along with the political agenda for their board members,” he said.

Alsayyed told the station he accepted the position in order to help young people understand Islam.

Homeless Couple Caught With 2 Pounds Of Meth Living In Lap Of Luxury Above Tennessee Walmart

Homeless Couple Found Living In Walmart… You’ll Never Guess What They Were Doing – Buzzpo

.

.
Police and store employees are baffled by this couple who were “living the lap of luxury” above a Tennessee Walmart store.

48-year-old Wilbert Thomas, who is ‘homeless though he admitted to police that he and his girlfriend, 54-year-old Ingrid Malone, had been living above the store for over two years.

What they were doing up in the attic is what puts the icing on the cake.

“I don’t mean to laugh, but these people really got one over on Walmart,” said Lieut. Marshall Weiss.
.

“In the attic, we recovered 2 pounds of meth they had somehow produced on a hot plate. They also managed to get food, drinks, mini refrigerator, a big screen TV, surround sound system, bedroom set, hangers, clothes… I mean, if Walmart sells it they had it. These people were living good. They even managed to splice into the satellite TV wire and ordered NFL Sunday ticket!”

.
Police reportedly found them when someone heard odd noises coming from the attic. Apparently they were engaging in intercourse to test out their new queen size bed from Walmart, of course.

Former Democrat Assemply Speaker From New York Convicted ​Of ​Seven Counts Of Corruption

Sheldon Silver Found Guilty On All Counts In Corruption Trial – New York Post

.
…………….

.
Former state Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver was convicted ​on ​all ​seven criminal ​counts Monday in a corruption scheme that traded taxpayer cash and political favors for nearly $4 million in payoffs.

A Manhattan federal jury deliberated less than three days before finding the veteran lawmaker guilty of seven charges of honest-services fraud, extortion and money laundering.

Silver, 71, faces a maximum 1​​30 years in ​prison for the long-running scam.

​The conviction of Silver – for decades one of the three most powerful politicians in the state – was a huge victory for anti-corruption crusading Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara.

​”Today, Sheldon Silver got justice, and at long last, so did the people of New York,” Bharara said in a statement.​

​Jurors had appeared to be in disarray several times during deliberations, with one demanding to be taken off the panel because she said other members were hassling her over her views, and another claiming a newly discovered conflict of interest earlier Monday..

The second juror, Bronx cabbie Kenneth Graham, 69, told the judge that he only recently learned that he leases his taxi medallion from a man who “associates with Mr. Silver.” The judge refused to excuse him.

“He was guilty, and that’s all,” Graham said of Silver outside court, when asked about the verdict.

“All of [the evidence] was compelling. We come to a conclusion, and he was guilty.”

But Graham indicated that the jury struggled to come up with its verdict.

“It was hard… on the last day and the day before… There was a lot of hold-outs,” he said.

“I feel relief. Maybe I don’t feel good,” he added.​​

The decision cemented a stunning fall from grace that began when the Manhattan Democrat was busted in January following more than three decades as one of state’s most powerful pols.

His arrest forced Silver to resign his leadership post, but he held onto his longtime Assembly seat.

Under state law, Silver’s conviction automatically boots him from office and bars him from ever again holding any state position.

Monday’s verdict came midway through the corruption trial of Silver’s onetime counterpart in the state Senate, former Majority Leader Dean Skelos, who’s charged in an unrelated influence-peddling scheme along with his son, Adam.

During Silver’s 3½-week trial, prosecutors presented an array of evidence that included testimony from co-conspirators who turned rat to avoid getting charged in the case.

Columbia University cancer doctor Robert Taub – who got $500,000 in taxpayer-funded research grants from Silver – testified that he steered dozens of asbestos victims to Silver for legal representation by the Weitz & Luxenberg law firm.

Silver, who was “of counsel” at Weitz & Luxenberg at the time, pocketed more than $3 million for delivering the clients.

Veteran Albany lobbyist Brian Meara also testified that he set up a meeting between Silver and an exec at the Glenwood Management development company, which hired another law firm with ties to Silver to handle its lucrative property tax litigation.

Silver – who changed his position on legislation extending real estate tax abatements and blocking stricter rent regulations – got more than $700,000 from the firm of Goldberg & Iryami, with Meara testifying that he was both “surprised and concerned” when Silver revealed the fee-splitting arrangement.

During closing arguments, prosecutor Andrew Goldstein told jurors that Silver was motivated by greed: “This was bribery. This was extortion. This was corruption – the real deal. Don’t let it stand.”

Goldstein also blasted as “preposterous” Silver’s claim that his actions were merely “politics as usual in Albany.”

Defense lawyer Steven Molo insisted that Silver had never engaged in the sort of “quid pro quo” that’s legally required to sustain a conviction for honest-services fraud.

Molo also accused prosecutors of viewing Silver through a “dirty window,” adding that they had “failed to demonstrate that any harm has occurred.”

Black Man Arrested For Starting String Of Church Fires In Mostly Black St. Louis Neighborhoods

Suspect, ‘Black Man In His 30s’, Arrested In St. Louis Church Fires – Weasel Zippers

.

.
We noted the strange nature of this case, that the fires were set at the door, seemingly set to go out, as most didn’t cause damage beyond some burnt marks on the doors.
.

ST. LOUIS • Police have made an arrest in connection with a two-week string of church arsons, most of which occurred at places of worship in black neighborhoods, the Post-Dispatch has learned. The suspect is a black man in his 30s, according to a police source.

Investigators are expected to seek criminal charges against him today.

The string of fires, many of which did minimal damage, drew attention of local and federal investigators. The locations drew speculation of whether it was a hate crime.

The Rev. Robert Gettinger, of St. Augustine Catholic Church, 1371 Hamilton Avenue, said news of an arrest is a relief.

“We pray for the person who has done this. It seems to be mentally off balance behavior,” Gettinger said.

He said the church remains grateful that damage was isolated to the front doors, common in all the fires. St. Augustine has not yet received bids, but damage is easily in the thousands of dollars, he said.

British Special Needs Teacher Arrested For Allegedly Murdering Four Men He Met On Gay Websites

Special Needs Teacher Accused Of Being A Serial Killer: ‘Oxford Graduate’ Allegedly Murdered Four Men He Met On Gay Websites And Poisoned Them With Party Drug GHB Before Their Bodies Were Found Within A Few Hundred Yards Of Each Other – Daily Mail

A special needs teacher appeared in court today accused of drugging and murdering young men he met on gay websites before dumping their bodies in and around his local churchyard.

Alleged serial killer Stephen Port, 40, of Barking, east London, is accused of using the party drug GHB – known as liquid ecstasy – to poison his four victims in a string of attacks spanning 14 months.

Port, who claims to have been an Oxford graduate who also served in the Royal Navy, is said to have met the men online and then invited them back to his flat for sex.

The victims then died allegedly after they were given fatal amounts of GHB, which is colourless and odourless, between June last year and September this year.

The men, all in their early twenties, were found dead within a few hundred yards of his Barking home but had previously been considered suicides or overdoses.

.

Pictured: This is Stephen Port, 40, left on Facebook and right in the dock, who today appeared in court accused of murdering four young men in the past 15 months

.

Map: Port lives in a house in Cooke Street, Barking, and one body was found in the same street last year. Two bodies were later found in the nearby grounds of St Margaret’s Church and another was found on North Street, next to the Abbey Ruins. All the deaths happened in the space of 15 months

.
Three of the bodies were found either close to the churchyard of St Margaret’s Church in the town or the nearby Abbey Ruins. Another alleged victim was found on the same street Port lived in, Cooke Street, in Barking.

Port was arrested last Thursday after a police raid on his flat and has been charged with four counts of murder and four counts of administering a poison with intent to endanger life or inflict grievous bodily harm.

Port, who has blonde hair but is now nearly bald with only a few tufts of hair on his head, appeared in the dock at Barkingside Magistrates accompanied by three uniformed officers.

He spoke only to confirm his name, age and address during the brief hearing.

Wearing a prison issue grey tracksuit he held one of his arms and repeatedly glanced at the floor. He gave no indication of plea.

Deputy District Judge Shlomo Kreiman remanded Port in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on Wednesday.

His first alleged victim is said to be Anthony Patrick Walgate, 23, from Barnet, who was pronounced dead on Cooke Street on June 19 2014.

Gabriel Kovari, 22, from Lewisham, was found dead near the churchyard of St Margaret’s Church, North Street in Barking, on August 28 2014.

Less than a month later Daniel Whitworth, 21, from Gravesend, Kent, was also found dead near the churchyard of St Margaret’s Church on September 20 2014.

Jack Taylor, 25, from Dagenham, whose body was found near the Abbey Ruins close to North Street on September 14 this year, is believed to be his most recent victim.

Port describes himself on Facebook as a special needs teacher at Westminster Kingsway College in King’s Cross. It says he attended the University of Oxford between 2000 and 2003.

His likes include a number of gay websites and lesbian, gay, transsexual and bisexual support groups.

Anthony Walgate, the first alleged victim, was a student at the University of Middlesex who had dreams of being a famous fashion designer.

Police found him dead in the street at 4am on June 19, 2014.

At the time his devastated mother Sarah Sak, from Hull, said she was convinced her son would not have drunk too much or taken drugs before he died.

Toxicology tests later confirmed that he had only a small amount of alcohol in his system and no traces of illegal drugs.

The second and third alleged victims Gabriel Kovari, 22, and Daniel Whitworth, 21, were found at the same Barking church within one month of each other.

An inquest earlier this year heard both men had taken GHB and methadone.

Mr Whitworth had ‘blamed himself for Mr Kovari’s death’ after they took the drug GHB at an orgy, Walthamstow Coroner’s Court heard in June.

A dog walker found Slovakian-born Mr Kovari on August 28 last year while Mr Whitworth, from Kent, was found on September 20.

The coroner was told that Mr Whitworth was found dead holding a note in his left hand, which said: ‘I can’t go on anymore, I took the life of my friend Gabriel.

‘We were just having some fun at a mate’s place and I got carried away and gave him another shot of G[HB]. It was an accident, I know I will go to prison if I go to the police.’

The note said the men had sex at the party and added: ‘I have taken what G[HB] I had left, with sleeping pills – if it does kill me it’s what I deserve. This way I can at least be with Gabriel again.’

A statement by Mr Kovari’s family was issued at the time.

It read: ‘He was full of love and care for others and loved the company of his friends,’ a letter from his brother and mum which was read out in court, said. ‘He had been a very inquisitive and special child gifted in arts.

‘He had excellent relationships with all his relatives and the desire to prove himself to the world.’

Mr Kovari’s flatmate, John Pape, told the inquest he had seen him with Mr Whitworth and was meeting men through gay social network site Grindr.

A statement from Mr Whitworth’s father, Adam Whitworth, was read to the inquest.

It said: ‘He was an active and intelligent outdoors boy who loved days on his bike exploring leafy byways,’ it read. ‘Those who knew him were shocked by this terrible news.’

Ms Persaud recorded an open verdict.

The final alleged victim, Jack Taylor, 25, was found dead in September.

His body was found around 300 yards from where Mr Whitworth and Mr Kovari were found dead by a dog walker.

Police Find 14 Plastic Containers Filled With Dead Babies In Psycho Abortionist’s Car

Police Raid Abortionist’s Home, Find 14 Plastic Containers Of Aborted Babies In His Car – Life News

.
…………….

.
Local police have raided the upscale West Bloomfield, Michigan home of abortionist Michael Roth after acting on evidence that Roth may be performing illegal abortions – doing abortions either out of his home or in the private homes of his customers. In the course of the raid, police found what they believe are 14 containers that possibly contain the bodies of aborted babies along with other human tissue.

The trunk of Roth’s car also contained medical equipment used for abortion procedures. Investigators confiscated medical “materials” in bags and boxes at Roth’s home. Now, Roth is now under investigation by the Michigan Attorney General.

WXYZ has more on what happened:
.

Sources confirm 14 containers of human tissue, possibly fetuses, medical equipment and large amounts of Fentanyl, a drug used for pain and sedation, was found in a car owned by the doctor who works as an OB/GYN.

The case started two weeks ago when the doctor was driving on 14 Mile west of the new roundabout at Orchard Lake. He hit a special needs child who was critically injured. Sources say the doctor was not under the influence and obtained a lawyer. His car was impounded as the accident was still under investigation.

Then last week, officers executed a search warrant to obtain the “black box” data recorder from the car and while inside the trunk they found plastic containers and medical equipment.

Sources say they containers were not labeled and no medical records were in the car.

.
Roth’s abortion business, the Novi Laser and Aesthetic Center, was evicted in November 2014 from its second office space this year. An eviction document provided to Operation Rescue by long-time pro-life activist Lynn Mills, shows that a court request for eviction from his office at 33200 West 14 Mile in West Bloomfield was filed on October 21, 2014. The eviction was ordered due to Roth’s violation of a provision of his lease.

Roth had until November 27, 2014, to vacate the premises. Photos taken through his office windows on November 25 show that the office was empty and Roth had already moved out.

Mills told Operation Rescue that she had conducted a literature drop just prior to Thanksgiving featuring information about Roth’s abortion business and his involvement in a tax fraud case. Roth moved out soon after.

“Public pressure of the kind used by Lynn Mills is very effective at exposing the ‘bad boys’ of the abortion cartel and forcing them out of business,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We applaud her efforts and those of others who also contributed to this pro-life victory.”

Earlier in 2014 Roth was evicted from his long-time office, located at 42450 West 12 Mile Road, Suite 205, in Novi, Michigan, which was the site of several large peaceful, pro-life sit-ins, or rescues, in the early 1990s.

Monica Migliorino Miller of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society talked with LifeNews about Roth and this new investigation.

“That Michael Roth would be performing illegal abortions – either in his home, or even in the homes of women – shows the despicable, sordid practice that is abortion. It also shows that Roth as an abortionist did not really care about the health and safety of women – as these abortions were not taking place in safe, sterile environments,” she said.

“This is just another sad, sorry story that exposes the dark world of the abortion practice and helps the public see that dark world. On top of the scandal of Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of aborted babies – and now this! We see the unscrupulous nature of the abortion practitioner – a nature forged in disrespect for life,” Miller continued.

Roth has a checkered history of Board discipline and malpractice suits related to botched abortion procedures. Some of the injuries he inflicted during abortions include perforated uteri and bowels, hemorrhage, and at least one abortion he did not finish because the abortion facility ran out of dilators of the size he needed to complete the procedure. One woman required a hysterectomy to save her life. Documents related to these incidents can be read at AbortionDocs.org.

Roth’s personal life was also troubled. He went through an ugly divorce in 2005 that resulted in his then-wife obtaining a personal protection order against her husband that specifically prohibited him from following her, approaching her in public, or prescribing any medications for her. She lived locked in the basement of their home during the divorce proceedings while he enjoyed the master bedroom, according to court documents.

Right to Life of Michigan also commented to LifeNews on this investigation.

“Roth has a long history of violations, including two previous at-home abortions he performed in 1998 and 1999,” the group said. “Right to Life of Michigan released a report in 2012, Abortion Abuses and State Regulatory Agency Failure, featuring several of Roth’s violations. In addition to his at-home abortions, Roth was disciplined in 2002 for drug-related violations, including prescribing drugs without a license. He was disciplined in 2004 for violating patient consent laws and was accused of falsifying medical records by a former employee.”

Right to Life of Michigan Legislative Director Ed Rivet said, “Abortionists frequently violate our laws with extreme disregard for women’s health and safety. Roth should have his license revoked, just like Dr. Robert Alexander who ran a house of horrors abortion clinic in Muskegon until 2014.”

Since passage of the Michigan Prolife Omnibus Act in 2012, which significantly strengthened the oversight of the abortion industry, 16 abortion businesses in the state have closed, many due to substandard practices.

Right to Life of Michigan President Barbara Listing said, “We’re glad we’ve been able to provide more tools for authorities to deal with health and safety violations in the abortion industry, and we’ll continue to provide them with even more. If abortionists and their businesses can’t abide by laws and regulations that others follow, they shouldn’t be allowed practice on vulnerable women.”

“Die Dirty Faggy”: Democrat Congressman’s Aide Arrested For Attacking Black, Gay Lover With Shovel, Knife

Police: Democratic Aide Beat Black Gay Lover With Shovel… ‘Die Dirty Faggy’ – Big Government

.
…………….

.
An aide to Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) was arrested in Baltimore last week for allegedly beating his male lover with a shovel, CQ Roll Call reports.

CQ Roll Call, which obtained the police report, details allegations that Levin staffer Tim Foster beat an unnamed, 39 year old black man, identified as Foster’s boyfriend, with a small black and red shovel just after midnight on Oct. 8. The beating left the victim hospitalized with wounds to his upper back, neck and torso.
.

Foster put his boyfriend in a choke hold and stated, “I want to kill you. Die dirty faggy,” the man later told police. Foster released him, then allegedly grabbed a stainless kitchen knife. As the boyfriend fled toward the stairs, Foster chased him and warned, “When you reach the fifth step, I am going to stab you.”

Foster lunged at his boyfriend with the knife. But Foster’s wife “got in the way” and the knife then fell to the floor, the report states.

The boyfriend told police he attempted to escape the property, but was again assaulted by Foster. This time, Foster struck him in his upper back with a small black and red shovel. Foster continued to assault the man until he got into his vehicle, the report states.

.
Foster has been charged with second degree assault and “dangerous weapons charges.” He was placed under arrest early Thursday morning and spent the night in the Baltimore County Detention Center before being released, Roll Call reported.

Levin’s office did not have a comment for Roll Call about the incident. However, the publication reports that Foster has been placed on unpaid leave.

Foster, who is Levin’s online communication manager, has reportedly worked for the Michigan lawmaker for seven years.

HPD Officer Wounds Teen Suspect After Attempted Ambush In Montrose Area – KHOU

.
…………….

.
A group of suspects targeted the wrong person to ambush after one of them was shot by a Houston police officer they were following on the way home late Thursday.

According to the Houston Police Department, it started at 11:30 p.m. when the 34-year veteran officer was heading home in his personal vehicle from a second job and noticed he was being followed as he drove down Woodhead Street in the Montrose area.

The officer turned onto Indiana Street to see if the car would keep going, but it didn’t. The suspect vehicle stopped and one male got out with a gun in hand. The suspect started toward the officer, who happened to still be in uniform.

The officer got out of his car and repeatedly identified himself as a police officer and ordered the suspect to stop. The suspect ignored the command and pointed his gun at the officer.

“At that point in time, a rear passenger got out and began running toward the sergeant as he went under street light he had arm extended and was shooting pistol directly at the sergeant,” Kese Smith, with HPD, said.

The 15-year-old suspect was shot in the buttocks.

The suspect ran back to the car where three other suspects were waiting, and the car fled the scene.

About 10 minutes later, HPD got a call about a wounded male on the ground at Cushing and Webster. HPD responded and spotted the suspect vehicle that was part of the officer-involved shooting and was able to take three suspects, ages 16, 17 and 18, into custody.

The fourth suspect was taken to a local hospital in serious condition.

The HPD sergeant says he was just doing his job and glad this didn’t happen to one of his neighbors.

People in this neighborhood say he is a hero who has gone above and beyond to protect this community, and they feel his actions send a strong message to criminals to not come back.

“He is the type that would stand up and turn the tables on everything,” one concerned neighbor said.

“Hopefully this will keep a few people out that shouldn’t be here,” Mindy Billon, neighbor, said.

Neighbors say this area of Montrose has recently seen a surge break-ins and people being followed home at random.

They say the sergeant who stood up for himself has been standing up for this neighborhood for years.

“He is not just a neighborhood, he has personally taken control of the neighborhood,” a concerned neighbor said. “On many occasions when he has come home at night he has helped us by stopping car break-ins, house break-ins.”

The suspect who was shot in the buttocks is being treated at the hospital, but is expected to be OK.

The three others have been booked into jail police say they’re still not sure if these would-be-robbers wanted to rob the sergeant, steal his car or both.

British University ‘Welfare And Diversity Officer’ Charged With Urging People To Kill White Men

Goldsmiths University “Welfare And Diversity Officer” Bahar Mustafa Brought Up On Charges For Urging People To Kill White Men – Moonbattery

.
…………….

.
Looks like the laws leftists have imposed in Britain forbidding free speech can cut both ways:
.

A student diversity officer who was caught up in a racism row after allegedly posting ‘kill all white men’ on social media has been summonsed to court to face malicious communications charges.

Bahar Mustafa, 28, of Edmonton, North London, a welfare and diversity officer at Goldsmiths University, will appear at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on 5 November, police said.

.
In the ultra-left university environment, not many have a problem with Bahar:
.

A student petition calling for her to be removed from her position garnered only 165 signatures, and she was allowed by the student union to keep her job, because it failed to meet the 3% threshold to trigger a referendum that could have dislodged her.

.
To call her a racist or a sexist because she wants white men to be killed would reveal ignorance of the deranged mishmash of corrosive lies that comprises the liberal ruling class’s official ideology:
.

Ms Mustafa explained that she could not be guilty of sexism or racism against white men “because racism and sexism describe structures of privilege based on race and gender and therefore women of colour and minority genders cannot be racist or sexist, since we do not stand to benefit from such a system.”

.
However, such a system only exists in the delusions of progressives. After all, no one gets a university position by denouncing women and nonwhites. BTW, men are the minority gender, so when do I get my minority privilege?

GA Woman Connected To #BlackLivesMatter Terrorists Arrested For Threatening To Kill Cops, White People

Black Woman Arrested In GA For Threatening To Kill Police, White People, Connected To Black Lives Matter, FYF… Update: Charges Include Making Terroristic Threats And Cruelty To Children, Judge Denies Bond – Weasel Zippers

.

.

CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. – Clayton County police are investigating threats against officers made by a woman in videos posted on the Internet.

Police say the woman who made the Internet threats lives a mile-and-a-half from a Clayton County police station.

The videos are filled with profanity and hate for white people.

The woman in the video, Latausha Nedd, who goes by the name Eye Empress Sekhmet, calls for a war on not only white people, but she advocates shooting police officers.

“I say let’s have a take a gun day, and start walking up on these untrained and stealing their weapons,” Nedd said.

“You really want people to kill cops?” Channel 2’s Tom Jones asked Nedd.

“I never said that,” Nedd told Jones.

Here’s the arrest:

Here’s some of the uncensored video (warning for language):
.

.
Here’s another interesting fact. In the first video above, there are two men in one of her videos, one identified as ‘Black Supreme Power’, the other as ‘Palmetto Star’.

Palmetto Star was involved in organizing the Black Lives Matter FYF event at Stone Mountain on 9/11. If you’ll recall they said they were going to have 2500 people out and ended up with 8.

Here’s a picture of the eight:

She used to work for the Georgia Citizen’s Coalition for the Homeless, Amnesty International and other social justice organizations. She was a fellow of the ‘Women’s Policy Institue’ to train grassroots leaders in California to help pass legislation.

Update:

The charges for the ‘Empress’ include making terroristic threats, criminal solicitation (urging people on youtube to kill white people and take over police stations), battery and ‘cruelty to children’. We do not yet know the story behind the last two charges yet.

After all sorts of proclamations about not caring what the police or anyone thought, her buddy, Palmetto Star, is now claiming the youtube threats were part of a ‘movie’. Given several videos and appearances on his blog talk radio show, it’s clear that was not the case. He also encouraged people to phone harass the police to ‘check on her’.

The judge denied her bond, so the Empress is going to sit for a bit.

Illegal Alien Repeatedly Rapes 7-Year-Old Girl In North Carolina – Leftist Media Refers To Him As ‘Burlington Man’

Illegal Alien Repeatedly Raped 7-Year-Old Girl In North Carolina – Universal Free Press

.

.
On Thursday, Rolando Saldana, 43, of 2156 James Boswell Road, Lot 9, was arrested by Alamance County sheriff’s deputies after he reportedly sexually assaulted a 7-year-old girl over a two-month period.

The Times-News reported:

The alleged offenses occurred between Oct. 1 and Nov. 30, 2014. The suspect is related to the victim.

Saldana has been charged with first-degree sex offense with a child younger than 13, and indecent liberties with a child. He is currently being held at the Alamance County Jail on a $150,000 bond.

Though Saldana has a long history of arrests, he has never been deported.

The citizens’ advocacy group known as NCFIRE reports:

According to Alamance County Sheriff Department, Rolando Saldana is wanted in Austin, TX, for parole violation dating back to 2001. Sentenced to 5 years for felony cocaine possession/trafficking, was released on parole after unknown period of time and skipped out.

He was stopped by the North Carolina State Highway Patrol in 2014 and cited for DWI but was never checked for citizenship status or whether he was wanted by any other agency.

He was stopped again on 01-16-15 and cited for driving while license revoked, expired inspection and fictitious/revoked registration by the Alamance County Sheriff’s Department, and again he was not checked for any citizenship status or wanted status.

Once again a child’s innocence has been stolen from her because of our open border with Mexico, and the lack of interior enforcement across this nation.

Unfortunately, we will have to wait at least another year and a half until the ‘half man’ Obama leaves office before our children can even have a chance of being safe from Mexican rapists.
