Santa Clara County DA’s Office creates team to remove firearms from dangerous offenders

I’m all for keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. What I’d like to see is stronger enforcement of current gun laws and harsher punishments for prohibited offenders.

Just serving a warrant can be dangerous enough for police. Can you imagine how volatile situations may become when trying to confiscate a violent criminal’s firearm?

Chiraq off to a typical week: 5 shot, 1 fatally Monday

The shootings never stop in Chiraq, even during Monday’s “accountability” meeting.

From MyFoxChicago: One person was killed and four others wounded in shootings Monday in Chicago, including a 27-year-old woman who was fatally shot while trying to fend off someone breaking into an apartment in Albany Park on the North Side.

She and a friend were inside the apartment about 9:32 p.m. in the 4400 block of North Francisco Avenue when they heard a knock at the door, Chicago police said. A male wearing all black with a ski mask tried to force his way in after they answered the door. Stephanie Brooks was shot in the chest as she tried to close the door, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. She was pronounced dead on the scene.

In non-fatal shootings, a 15-year-old boy was critically wounded after he was shot in Morgan Park on the Far South Side. He was walking about 6:48 p.m. when two males approached him in the 11300 block of South Aberdeen Avenue, pulled out a gun and shot him in the abdomen and shoulder, police said. The teen was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said.

A 60-year-old man was shot while standing in a yard in Austin on the West Side. The shooting happened about 10:20 a.m. in the 500 block of North Leamington Avenue, police said. He was taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition with gunshots to his abdomen and chest, police said.

A 22-year-old woman was shot in Lawndale on the West Side. She was walking in the 2200 block of South Keeler Avenue about 9:15 a.m. when she heard gunshots and realized she was hit, police said. The woman was taken to Stroger Hospital with a gunshot wound to her leg, police said. She was listed in good condition.

A man was wounded in a shooting in Little Village on the Southwest Side. The 19-year-old was standing in an alley at 12:52 a.m. in the 2800 block of South Komensky Avenue when he heard shots and felt pain, according to police. He was hit in the abdomen and taken in serious condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, police said.

Five people were killed and 17 people were wounded last weekend in Chicago.

Boy Scouts of America files for bankruptcy

Another traditional instituion ruined by the Left and by its own evil-doers.

Ben Feuerherd reports for the New York Post that on Feb. 18, 2020, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in Delaware so as to keep operating while thousands of claims of sexual abuse by former members are litigated.

In filing for bankruptcy, all civil suits against the BSA will be suspended, and the organization will avoid lengthy and damaging jury trials in a number of states. However, BSA will likely have to pay victims.

Roger Mosby, the Boy Scouts’ president and chief executive officer, said in a statement:

The BSA cares deeply about all victims of abuse and sincerely apologizes to anyone who was harmed during their time in Scouting. We are outraged that there have been times when individuals took advantage of our programs to harm innocent children. hile we know nothing can undo the tragic abuse that victims suffered, we believe the Chapter 11 process — with the proposed Trust structure — will provide equitable compensation to all victims while maintaining the BSA’s important mission.

The Boy Scouts have struggled with declining membership and rising costs. According to BSA’s 2018 tax filing, it had $1.4 billion in assets. The bankruptcy filing document, Official Form 201, says BSA has an estimated 1,000 to 5,000 creditors, and liabilities estimated to be $½ billion to $1 billion.

Whistleblower Found Shot To Death In California

The suicide list gets bigger.  Why do people with hidden knowledge seem to kill themselves?  Especially when the information may prove a democrat is being dishonest or proves their involvement in a crime.

 

‘Phil had firsthand evidence that Obama was secretly advancing Islamic hegemony in the U.S.  He sacrificed his career to expose it.’

 

The whistleblower from the Department of Homeland Security during the Obama Administration was found dead near his vehicle outside of Sacramento Friday morning.

Authorities found 66-year old Philip Haney dead by a single gunshot wound. Haney was known for exposing President Obama’s orders to scrub the records of Muslims with terrorist ties.

According to the Amador County Coroner’s Office, deputies and detectives responded to a report of a man shot near Highway 124 and Highway 16 in Plymouth, California.

In the report obtained by the California Globe, Haney died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound… A firearm was found near Haney’s body and his vehicle. An investigation is active and ongoing.

Unhinged demorats: Indiana couple drove boys with Trump flags off road

Unhinged Hobart demorats

From ABC News: A northwestern Indiana couple allegedly used a car to force two teenage boys off a road, angered that the twin brothers were riding bicycles adorned with flags supporting President Donald Trump, before ripping one of the sibling’s flag from his bike, police said Friday.

Hobart police said Snapchat videos helped officers secure charges against Kyren Gregory Perry-Jones, 23, and Cailyn Marie Smith, 18, in connection with a July 22 incident.

Police Capt. James Gonzales said the Hobart couple are accused of driving in their car, running the 14-year-old boys off of the road, and making threats toward them.

According to a probable cause affidavit, the boys told officers that a vehicle with a man driving and woman passenger followed them before the male driver pulled up nearby and asked one of the boys “if they were Trump supporters” — to which the boy replied that they were.

The driver then swerved at the boys, forcing them onto roadside grass to avoid being struck, according to the affidavit. The driver followed the boys before exiting the car and tearing off the flag from one of the brother’s bikes, the affidavit states.

The driver dropped the flag, which was affixed to the bike with fishing pole, ran back to his car and drove off, “but not before running the flag over,” it states.

Both Perry-Jones and Smith have been charged with two felony counts of intimidation and criminal recklessnes. They were also charged with one count each of theft and criminal mischief, both of which are misdemeanors.

Smith was in custody but Perry-Jones remained at large Friday evening, police said. Online court records do not list attorneys who could speak on behalf of either of them.

Gonzales said the charges weren’t filed until Thursday because there was a delay in detectives getting information from Snapchat, The (Northwest Indiana) Times reported.

In a video posted to Snapchat, allegedly by the couple of their encounter with the boy, shows “the driver turns the wheel sharply as if he saw the boys and wanted to hit them with the vehicle while yelling `ya’ll better get home,'” according to the affidavit. A male’s voice is then heard telling the female passenger “pull that flag down” in the video which shows the female trying to reach it through her window and her saying, “get closer.”

The female is then heard saying `ya’ll scared, just like your president” and `America is not great’” followed by an expletive, according to the affidavit.

In a second Snapchat video, Perry-Jones alleged says, “Don’t let me see you downtown” to one of the boys and threatens to beat him up.

Girl, 11, gives birth after being raped by brother, Father of family is illegal alien once deported

The Happy Family: Left: Francisco Javier Gonzalez-Lopez (the illegal once deported alien); Center: Norvin Leonidas Lopez-Cante (the child/sister’s rapist); Right: Lesbia Cante (the abused victim’s mother)
Source: St. Charles, MO police

Three members of a St. Charles, MO family, led by an illegal alien who had previously been deported, were arraigned Feb. 14 on child abuse and endangerment charges after their 11-year old-daughter gave birth to a baby boy in a bathtub at the family’s home

The girl’s 17-year-old brother, Norvin Leonidas Lopez-Cante, is the baby’s father, according to court documents. His father is Francisco Javier Gonzalez-Lopez, the illegal alien.

Police started investigating after Lopez-Cante’s father and mother Lesbia Cante, took the infant to St. Joseph Hospital on Feb. 11. Gonzalez-Lopez told police that someone had dropped the infant off on his front porch. Charging documents said the baby still had the umbilical cord and placenta attached and had a body temperature of just 90 degrees when he was admitted to the hospital emergency room.

Police detectives interviewed Gonzalez-Lopez at his home two days later, where he told police the father of the child was his son, and the mother of the baby was his son’s 11-year-old sister.

Gonzalez-Lopez said he did not know the girl was pregnant or that Lopez-Cante was raping her until she gave birth to the child in their bathtub.

According to court documents, after police read Lopez-Cante his Miranda rights, he told police he had sex with the girl about 100 times but did not know she was pregnant. He said he did not know when he first had sex with her, but said it happened about twice a week.

Lopez-Cante was charged with first-degree statutory rape, statutory sodomy and incest. His bond was set at $25,000, cash-only.

Gonzalez-Lopez was charged with endangering the welfare of a child for his role in the incident. His bond was set at $10,000, cash only. Charging documents said he entered the country illegally and was previously deported.

The girl’s mother, Lesbia Cante, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Her bail was initially set at $10,000. On Tuesday, Feb. 18, at her  first court hearing, Cante pleaded not guilty to the charges. The court subsequently increased her bail to $100,000

Did your pants just chirp Big Boy, or are you just glad to see me? Reason # 132 why Palestinians don’t have a country

The Goldfinch—a tiny bird that supports a huge criminal Palestinian smuggling enterprise

You can’t make this stuff up. There is an on-going smuggling operation in the Palestinian settlement that trades not in narcotics, weapons, or stolen jewelry, but on songbirds—specifically, goldfinches. The birds are apparently sought after by residents of Israel’s Arab quarter, who are said to be willing to pay big shekels just to hear the birds sing. The smugglers range from highly organized criminal operations, to bumbling juveniles who are trying to capitalize on the seemingly easy money.

According to Toi News, two Palestinian minors were caught by Israeli authorities trying to smuggle songbirds to the West Bank in their pants while crossing into the country from Jordan.

The two minors — a boy from Hebron and a girl from Ramallah — aroused the suspicion of security at the Allenby Border Crossing after guards heard tweeting sounds coming from their pants. A search of the two minors by the guards revealed dozens of goldfinches concealed inside their pants.

According to the Times of Israeli, wild goldfinch can fetch up to NIS 150 ($39. But the wild birds often are mated with yellow canaries, which produce a more mellow song. A goldfinch-canary hybrid can go for anywhere from NIS 500 shekels ($131) to NIS 1,500 ($395).

Hiding birds in pants legs seems to be a preferred method of smuggling.

Harratz news reported the December 29, 2019 arrest of four Palestinians who attempted to smuggle 94 birds that were hidden in their pants. The men were suspected of bringing the goldfinches into Hebron from Jordan, to sell for hundreds of shekels each. The men were arrested at the Israel-Jordan border.

The office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) said the four were detained after rousing the suspicion of the Allenby Bridge crossing’s guards. Police said that the four men did not have a permit to own or transfer the birds, adding the suspects admitted they were planning to sell each one for hundreds of shekels.

This is the biggest attempt to smuggle wildlife through Israel’s border with Jordan in the past two years, Israel’s Civil Administration said. European goldfinches, which are a protected species in Israel, are illegally trapped and traded in Israeli territory as well, a practice that poses a serious threat to the species in the region.

Major Hadi Khatib, Commander of the Liaison Office at Allenby Bridge, said that Palestinians returning from Jordan have made several similar smuggling attempts in recent months.

Defense officials thwarted an attempt on Wednesday morning to smuggle thousands of shekels worth of live songbirds from Gaza to Israel. Inspectors at the Erez crossing to the northern Gaza Strip confiscated some 30 goldfinches from a 44-yearold trader from Gaza City attempting to convey the birds to east Jerusalem, according to the Defense Ministry’s Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories unit, or COGAT.

This is the fifth time in the past two years that Erez crossing officers have stopped such a smuggling attempt of goldfinches, which are considered a rare and highly sought-after animal in the Arab sector, a statement from COGAT said.

The confiscation of the birds at the border was a collaborative effort among inspectors from the Defense Ministry’s Border Authority, the Coordination and Liaison Administration to the Gaza Strip and the Israel Nature and Parks Authority.

“During a routine security check of a Palestinian agricultural trader, a resident of Gaza, security guards noticed suspicious signs,” said Erez crossing manager Shlomo Tsaban. “Checking the dealer’s bag revealed a number of birds, tied to and hidden in the side of the bag.”

The entry permit of the smuggler was immediately taken by the inspectors, and the INPA is examining the possibility of fining him, in order to reduce the phenomenon of animal trafficking, according to COGAT. The birds will be released by the INPA in southern Israel.

“The increase in the number of bird-smuggling attempts from Gaza and from Judea and Samaria is due to the increase in hunting, which has made the bird a rare animal,” said Uri Madar, the Gaza Liaison and Coordination Administration’s agricultural officer. “We are working in partnership with all parties, Israeli and Palestinian, to help animals in Gaza – this is about saving lives in every respect.”

A former customs official at Al-Karama checkpoint said that what is being seized is trivial when we compare it to the actual number of birds being smuggled. Adding that the smuggling of birds became a big network within illegal trade such as cannabis… etc. Illegal traders usually don’t go through the boarders themselves, but they have their workers smuggle the goods. “Most of the smugglers are female. For example, once we found that a woman was travelling with six girls, hiding 120 birds under their clothing” the former official stated. “Because of this, we hired female employees to inspect female passengers on the Al-Karama checkpoint, especially after we found out how big of a trade it was for them.”

Harretz News, Monday (February 17) reported the arrest of four Friday morning at the Israel-Jordan border for trying to smuggle 94 protected goldfinches into Hebron in the West Bank. The office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) said that the Palestinians hid the small songbirds in their pants and were detained after rousing the suspicion of the Allenby Bridge crossing’s guards.

Police said that the four men did not have a permit to own or transfer the birds, adding the suspects admitted they were planning to sell each one for hundreds of shekels. The birds were discovered hidden under one suspect’s pants..

Major Hadi Khatib, Commander of the Liaison Office at Allenby Bridge, said that Palestinians returning from Jordan have made several similar smuggling attempts over the past month. Last week, the Civil Administration said a Palestinian was arrested for attempting to covertly smuggle goldfinches in his shoes. In 2017, a Palestinian man from Nablus was also caught at Allenby Bridge with over 40 birds tied to his legs in an attempt to smuggle them into Jordan.
The men were suspected of bringing the goldfinches into Hebron from Jordan, to sell for hundreds of shekels each. The men were arrested at the Israel-Jordan border.

Multnomah County receives grant to evaluate the “pre-trial system” from foundation with ties to Soros

This guy is ALWAYS involved in messing with our criminal justice system (and not in a good way).

KATU reports that Multnomah County (Portland, Oregon) is planning to change the way it looks at those arrested for a crime. They are to receive a $2M grant from the MacArthur Foundation to study the pre-trial system (aka “bail reform”), which decides who goes to jail and who is released.

MacArthur Foundations’ ties to Soros? See here, here and here.

From the KATU report:

“The county received this funding from the MacArthur Foundation, and staff tell KATU moving forward they only want people who pose a flight risk and a risk to public safety to be put behind bars.

“We have an assessment that shows how our system works: how it works well and the lots of spaces where there is room for improvement. We’ll be using these funds to determine what types of staff we can hire, probably some data capacity and some more project folks and some attorneys to help us figure out how the new system can be built,” said Abbey Stamp with the Local Public Safety Coordinating Council.

Jay Scroggin is the Adult Services Division Director for the county’s Department of Community Justice. He said they’ll spend the next two years creating a system based on science and risk.

What crime they did, and how much money they have in their pocket — which is our current system — does not predict whether they are likely to show up to court or likely to commit a crime while released,” Scroggin said.

Ultimately, Stamp said this could improve safety.”

Chiraq’s gun control laws at work: Eleven children wounded in shootings since Friday night

Right before I published this post I saw that the number of kids shot went up from eight to eleven.

Mayor Lightfoot’s “Accountability Monday” meeting should be fun.

MyFoxChicago reports that since Friday night eight children were shot and wounded. The minors were wounded at a “gathering” at an apartment complex on the South Side. From their report:

“Three adults also were wounded in the shooting at the Parkway Gardens housing complex.

Police said a 14-year-old girl, 18-year-old man and 23-year-old woman were listed in critical condition. The girl suffered wounds to her back, shoulder, lower backside and leg, while the woman suffered wounds to her back, shoulder, head and stomach. The man suffered multiple wounds to his leg.

A 20-year-old man who suffered wounds to his face, chest and leg was listed in serious condition.

Another 14-year-old girl, who suffered a gunshot wound to her leg, and a 15-year-old girl with gunshot wounds to her leg and foot were in good condition, police said. The release said the circumstances leading to the shooting weren’t immediately known. Police said the 23-year-old woman was armed with a handgun, but didn’t say whether she fired the weapon.”

And despite having a “Child Access Prevention Law,” three minors were wounded during accidental shootings. These incidents involved a seven-year-old girl holding a gun and shooting an 11-year-old boy; a young boy playing with a gun and shooting an eight-year-old boy; and a 14-year-old girl shot in the cheek by a 15-year-old boy.

I wonder if any adults will be held responsible for allowing children to access their firearms?

Read about all the shootings here.
