Cop-Hater Marilyn Mosby’s Mother, Father And Uncle Were Disgraced Cops

Bad Blood: Marilyn Mosby’s Mom Resigned Boston Police Force After Failing Drug Test – Daily Caller

.
…………

.
The mother of Baltimore city state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby faced numerous disciplinary actions during her 20-year career as a Boston police officer, though the public wouldn’t know it based on the Freddie Gray case prosecutor’s public statements touting her family’s strong policing history.

The 35-year-old Mosby has used her family’s police ties to rebut critics who say she rushed to judgement and overcharged the six cops involved in Gray’s April 12 arrest. The 25-year-old Gray died a week later, touching off rioting in Baltimore and nationwide protests.

“Law enforcement is pretty much instilled within my being,” Mosby told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes on May 1, the day she publicly announced charges against the officers. “I come from five generations of police officers,” she added, pointing out that her mother, father, grandfather and uncles have all served as cops.

But there’s more to the story than Mosby has let on.

Personnel records obtained by The Daily Caller show that Mosby’s mother, Linda Thompson, first violated the Boston police department’s substance abuse policy in 2006. After serving a 45-day rehab stint, Thompson violated the drug code again and voluntarily resigned on Feb. 1, 2008, rather than be fired.

The early retirement allowed Thompson, now 52, to draw a $1,810.69 monthly pension.

Thompson is not the only member of Mosby’s family to have had a rocky policing career. Mosby’s father was fired from the Boston police department in 1991 following accusations that he and his partner robbed drug dealers at gun point. Mosby’s uncle was fired from Boston PD in 2001 after testing positive for cocaine. Her grandfather was a well-respected Boston cop, but he ultimately and unsuccessfully sued the department for racial discrimination in the 1980s.

Mosby has not publicly mentioned any of that during her speeches when running for Baltimore state’s attorney or since taking on the Gray case.

“A majority of police officers are risking their lives day-in and day-out,” Mosby told Hayes during her interview. “Recognizing that, because that’s what my family did, I also recognize that there are those individuals that usurp their authority who will… go past the public trust.”

“When they do that, you have to hold those individuals accountable,” Mosby added.

Mosby’s claims are disingenuous, say three retired Boston police officers interviewed by TheDC.

“Linda Thompson’s daughter is lecturing police officers about the right thing to do? You’ve got to be kidding me,” said one former cop who reached the highest levels of the Boston police department and has known Thompson since the beginning of her career.

The retired officer, who asked not to be named, said that Mosby’s message has been, “You can trust me, I come from a family of cops.”

Mosby has proved a polarizing figure so far in the Gray case. Elected to office last year, she became a national star to many after her public announcement of charges against the cops. But her many critics say her case is flimsy and that she charged the officers for political reasons.

The prosecution’s theory seems to be that the officers did not do enough to restrain Gray in the back of a police van after his April 12 arrest. Some of the six officers also failed to provide proper medical attention, Mosby has claimed.

Gray’s April 19 death was ruled a homicide due to “an act of omission.” Mosby charged the driver of Gray’s police van with second-degree depraved heart murder and manslaughter. Three other cops face manslaughter charges.

Mosby has also been heavily criticized for using activist rhetoric when publicly discussing the case. During her May 1 speech she said that she heard protesters’ battle-cry of “no justice, no peace.” Days before that speech – and before the medical examiner’s office had even determined Gray’s cause of death – she told a group of local clergy members that she was going to seek justice for Gray “by any and all means necessary.”

The public got an apparent glimpse of Mosby’s sentiment towards the cops when she “favorited” two controversial tweets on May 6. One tweet called the officers “thugs” and another asserted that the young prosecutor “INFURIATES a certain kind of white person.” Mosby denied favoriting the tweets, saying that her account was hacked. However, her personal account showed no other evidence of being infiltrated.

Mosby’s public comments reminded one retired Boston detective of something her mom did in the 18th district police house on Oct. 3, 1995.

That was the day a California jury found O.J. Simpson not guilty of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman.

The detective, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told TheDC that when the bombshell decision was announced, an ecstatic Linda Thompson jumped up on the desk of another officer and began “doing a victory dance.”

The retired detective said he was bothered by the display but felt he couldn’t do anything about it. Thompson did not respond to a phone message and several emails sent over the past three weeks seeking comment about the incident.

Thompson’s former colleague gave other insight into her work in the 18th district, which encompasses Boston’s Hyde Park.

“This is a woman we carried because half of the time she was on drugs, she was high,” the former cop told TheDC in a phone interview.

“Everybody knew it, but nobody wanted to say anything,” he added. “She did nothing. All she did was put in the hours.”

Thompson officially became a Boston police officer in April 1987. She followed in the footsteps of her father, Prescott Thompson, who helped start Boston’s first black policeman’s organization.

Even as a police recruit, Linda Thompson faced disciplinary action. Her personnel file shows she was suspended for one day in Jan. 1987. After becoming a full-time cop, Thompson was suspended again for one day on Dec. 7, 1989, for failure to report for duty. She was suspended for another day on Oct. 29, 1991, for refusing directives and orders.

Thompson was suspended for 10 days on Feb. 5, 1993. That decision was made following a hearing held Dec. 31, 1991, which was sparked by an internal affairs investigation started in July 1990. Evidence was submitted which established that Thompson violated security rules and rules governing the care and maintenance of department firearms. In 1995, the department revised Thompson’s punishment and awarded her five days of back pay.

On Nov. 13, 1995, just weeks after the alleged Simpson verdict scene, Thompson was cited for failure to report for duty and was suspended for one day. She was suspended again for one day on May 28, 1996, for neglect of duty and for failure to report damage to an assigned vehicle. On Sept. 26, 2003, Thompson was suspended for five days for using profane language towards a superior and for refusing to leave a restricted area.

Thompson’s first documented drug violation came on Dec. 5, 2006, according to her personnel file. Records show she agreed to a settlement for violating the department’s substance abuse policy. As part of the settlement, Thompson accepted a 45-day suspension.

Thompson, now the director of a Christian dance school in North Carolina, violated the department’s substance abuse policy again, according to the three retired officers. None had direct knowledge of the department’s internal investigation but said that Thompson’s second foul was known all throughout the department.

Last month, TheDC reported that in 1989, Mosby’s father, Alan James, was arrested and charged with assault and battery along with another officer for their role in the armed robberies of local drug dealers. James and his partner allegedly flashed their badges and pulled out their guns. During one heist, one of the officers’ weapons discharged, though nobody was hurt. James was acquitted of charges in 1991 but was fired by the Boston police department immediately after.

Mosby’s grandfather, Prescott Thompson, was by all accounts a distinguished police officer. But he eventually filed a racial discrimination lawsuit against the department. He was forced to resign the force in 1976 because he lost his right eye five years before and could no longer work. When he tried to come back on the job in 1986, he was denied. After that, he filed the suit, which eventually went nowhere.

Mosby’s uncle, Richard Miller, was successful in his 1981 racial discrimination lawsuit against the Massachusetts state police. He was a awarded a judgement of more than $200,000.

TheDC found that another Mosby uncle, Preston Thompson, was fired from the Boston police force after testing positive for cocaine in 2001. That was Thompson’s first positive test for drugs, and he could have remained on the force, which has a two-strikes policy, had he entered the same 45-day drug rehab program Linda Thompson entered. But he refused to do so and was fired. He reportedly draws disability pay.

Mosby’s office did not respond to a request for comment. The trial against the six Baltimore officers is scheduled to begin in October. Defense attorneys for the accused have filed motions calling for Mosby to recuse herself from the case. So far, she has declined to do so.

Meth Head Writes Note Used In Bank Robbery On Back Of Mother’s Personal Check

Suspect To Police: “I Tried To Rob A Bank To Pay For Meth” – KOKH

.

.
Midwest City Police say the man they arrested for trying to rob IBC Bank told them he was up for four days using methamphetamine prior to the incident.

Christopher Fulton was arrested Friday, one day after the attempted robbery at IBC Bank on N. Air Depot Blvd in Midwest City.

According to court documents, on Thursday Fulton entered the bank and handed the teller a personal check with the personal information scribbled out and a threatening note written on it. The note read “You know what to do or we all die, I will shoot you first $500 $100 $50 $20 $10”.

Police say Fulton thought the bank had triggered the hold up alarm and ran from the bank. He climbed into a black sports car and left the scene.

The next day, the FBI contacted Midwest City Police and said Fulton was confessing to the crime. According to the report, Fulton said he saw the robbery suspect’s picture in the newspaper and it looked like him.

Police say he told them he thought it was his body in the bank, but not his mind. He then told police that he was up for four days and using methamphetamine.

Fulton told police he stole the check from his mother. He also said a friend owed someone $1,400 for two ounces of methamphetamine and that his girlfriend influenced him to commit the crime. According to Fulton, the plan was to rob the bank to get the money to pay back the debt.

He told police that he chose IBC Bank because he had previously banked there.

He was booked into the Midwest City Jail on robbery charges.

It is thought laughing Yannick Ntesa, 25, sprayed the acid and made his getaway in a red BMW

The 44-year-old mother, from Plaistow, fled to a neighbour’s home where water was poured over her burning clothes.

Some of the acid burnt her son’s satchel while another mother also suffered minor injuries in the attack on March 24, 2011.

The victim was rushed to the Royal London Hospital and later transferred to a specialist burns unit in Chelmsford, Essex.

She suffered 16 per cent chemical burns and is still receiving medical treatment.

Following a six week trial at Blackfriars Crown Court a jury convicted Ntesa, Motno and Miah of conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm and throwing a corrosive fluid on another with intent.

Motin, from Stepney, east London, was jailed for 16 years.

Ntesa, from Paddington, and Miah, of no fixed address, were both jailed for 14 years.

No motive was given for the attack but Detective Inspector John Reynolds, of Newham CID, said: ‘This was a truly shocking attack on a mother who had her two very young children with her at the time.

‘It was only by chance that those children were not seriously injured. They did however suffer terrible shock from seeing their own mother so horrifically assaulted.

‘The victim in this case is entirely innocent but will now spend the rest of her life having to adjust to the severe disfigurement inflicted on her.

‘This sentencing demonstrates just how seriously the Met police and the courts treat such incidents. Those responsible have been bought to justice and we can only hope it brings some small comfort to the victim.’

Naomi Oni, 21, who worked at Stratford’s Westfield Shopping Centre, spent a month in hospital after an acid attack in Dagenham, Essex, in the early hours of December 30 last year.

In April a 28-year-old woman, named as Tara, had acid squirted in her face after answering the door of her home in Romford, to a stranger.

Obama the Exploiter-in Chief

Depiscable

President Obama will hold an event Wednesday with law enforcement officials and mothers of gun violence victims, marking the 100th day since the Newtown, Conn., mass shooting.

The president is looking to build momentum for a package of new gun control measures to be considered by the Senate early next month.

First off let me clear up something. To use grief-stricken mothers for this is deplorable, but the Left does deplorable very well. Those mothers are easy targets for the vultures on the Left who will do anything to get their achieve their ends. Secondly, those “law enforcement officials” are political tools, not real cops. They are walk-behinders, puppets who say exactly what they are supposed to say. 

This is going to be another episode of Kabuki Theater starring our president

Mother Jailed After Hiring Strippers For 16-Year-Old Son’s Birthday Party

Mother Jailed After Hiring Strippers For 16-Year-Old Son’s Birthday Party – Weekly Vice

Judy Viger, a 33-year-old New York woman was jailed after she allegedly hired strippers to perform at her son’s 16th birthday party.

……..

According to South Glen Falls Police, an investigation was launched after photos of the alleged strip show (shown below) were posted online.

Viger hired two dancers for the party, who performed for her son and other teenagers – some as young as 14 years old. The two performers stripped down to g-strings and bras before making physical contact with several teens attending the event.

One photograph, taken on a cell phone, shows an upside-down dancer with a teen’s head buried between her legs. In another photograph, Viger can be seen getting a piece of the action while several teen boys watched.

Viger was booked into jail and charged with five counts of endangering the welfare of a child. She is scheduled to appear in court on March 7th.

Bomb Case Blows Up In Feds’ Face – New York Post

In a stunning setback to President Obama’s approach to trying terrorism suspects, the first Guantanamo detainee to be prosecuted in civilian court nearly walked free when a jury found him not guilty on all but one of 285 terror-related counts yesterday.

Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, a Tanzanian, beat weighty charges such as conspiracy to kill US nationals and conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction in the 1998 attacks on US embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, which claimed 224 lives.

He was convicted only on Count 5, a minor charge of conspiracy to damage or destroy US property with explosives.

But that count includes a subsection that asks jurors if the defendant’s conduct caused death of persons other than his co-conspirators – and the jury said “yes.”

That lone guilty verdict is enough to send the terrorist to jail for at least 20 years under federal sentencing guidelines, and maybe for the rest of his life.

Ghailani, 36, smiled during the eight minutes it took to read all the charges.

“We respect the jury’s verdict and are pleased that Ahmed Ghailani now faces a minimum of 20 years in prison and a potential life sentence,” the Justice Department said in a statement.

The failure to pin more serious convictions on Ghailani is likely to be seen as a setback for Obama’s plans to close Guantanamo and try 174 terrorism suspects in civilian courts.

The detainees at Guantanamo include Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the accused mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks.

While the feds obtained a conviction, it was not on the more serious charges they needed to set a precedent for future prosecutions.

The major problem was prosecutors’ inability to establish how much Ghailani knew about the attacks or his involvement in the bombings.

Defense attorneys were elated at the jury’s conclusion, and said they plan to appeal the single conviction.

“This verdict is a reaffirmation that this nation’s judicial system is the greatest ever devised. It is truly a system of laws and not men,” said defense lawyer Peter Quijano.

Ghailani was transferred from Guantanamo Bay to New York in June 2009.

Following several tense days of deliberations, prosecutors were lucky to get even the one conviction, after seeing their case nearly implode in a mistrial.

The panel, which deliberated for a week, reached its decision two days after one juror asked to be excused, saying she was being “attacked” for her dissenting opinion.

But the jurors went back to work and reached the single unanimous verdict.

“You have reason to feel proud,” said Judge Lewis Kaplan. “You have all done your duty. Our nation is a better place. I and everyone else have been struck by the way you did your duty. You reviewed the evidence with great care.”

The government accused Ghailani of buying seven gas cylinders used in the bombs and the truck used to transport them.
