Sanctuary King County, WA: Convicted rapist and illegal alien freed after 9 months returns to attack his disabled victim second time

I’ve told you about the very liberal King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg before. He is a big proponent of “criminal justice reform” and believes that “not all of society’s most complicated issues can be solved in a courtroom or with a prison cell.”

Watch Satterberg speak about criminal justice reform here.

Here’s a story about a homeless illegal alien who raped a disabled woman and was released nine months later on a “conditional release.”

The illegal alien was suppose to board a flight to California upon his release and return to Mexico yet he returned to attack his victim for a second time. (Watch the video here describing how he was to return to Mexico.)

Only one media told the truth that the rapist is an illegal alien; the rest kept their stories sanitized.

The illegal alien is now on the loose in sanctuary Washington State and a manhunt is underway for him.

From Q13 Fox: King County Sheriff’s deputies are asking for your help to find Francisco Carranza-Ramirez. The 35-year-old is believed to be homeless in the White Center area.

Detectives say the convicted rapist got out of jail last Thursday and returned to the home of his victim on Sunday and attacked her again. “He actually assaulted her, hit her with something her on her head, knocking her off her wheelchair and then he strangled her, threatening to kill her,” said Sgt. Ryan Abbott with the King County Sheriff’s Office.

The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office has charged him with Assault 2nd Degree, Felony Harassment, Intimidating a Witness and Felony Violation of a Sex Assault Protection Order. They also added aggravators to each charge to make his sentence more severe.

In October 2018, Carranza-Ramirez was charged with Rape 3rd degree of a wheelchair dependent woman. In February, he pleaded guilty at an arraignment. The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office recommended that part of his sentence include community custody so that he would be supervised upon release.

The standard sentencing range for his crime is 6 to 13 months. He served almost 9 months. Judge Nicole Gaines-Phelps sentenced Carranza-Ramirez to credit for time served with no community custody, to register as a sex offender and to provide proof that he had left the country and was in Mexico.

The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s office objected to the defendant being allowed to leave for Mexico and asked the court to impose community custody so that he would be supervised when released.

On June 13, Carranza-Ramirez was released from jail. On June 15, he violated the protection order by coming within 1,000 feet of her.

On June 16, King County sheriff’s detectives say he went to her home, hit her in the head with an object knocking her out of her wheelchair and then choked her while threatening to kill her.

Prosecutors have issued a no-bail warrant for his arrest for violating the protection order. They have also requested a $500,000 bail on the new charges.

Carranza-Ramirez is 5’8″, 140 pounds. His hair is still long but he sometimes wears it in a man-bun. The 35-year-old is believed to be homeless in the White Center area.

If you can tell deputies where to find him, call 911 or submit an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound through the P3 Tips app on your cell phone or at 1-800-222-TIPS. Cash reward offered of up to $1,000.

Insanity in Seattle: Homeless man attempts to kidnap child. Guess how many previous arrests/convictions he has…

I don’t even know where to begin with this. Well, actually I do.

The demorat-run, liberal utopia of Seattle has a major homeless crisis.

The bureaucrats in that city and King County do nothing to actually address the real problems (drug addiction and mental health issues). Instead, they coddle the homeless and try to mislead the public on just how bad the homeless crisis is. Just search our web site for “Seattle” to read through the many posts I’ve done about their homeless/crime situation.

The King County prosecutor, Dan Satterberg, is a demorat who believes that “not all of society’s most complicated issues can be solved in a courtroom or with a prison cell.”

How’s that approach working for King County? Just last month from KIRO:

“There’s been a massive call to action after a damning report on the 100 most prolific offenders in Seattle. Business owners are fed up and want the criminals locked up for good. KIRO 7 has documented the same criminals being arrested over and over again. These offenders committed thousands of crimes in Seattle in just two months last year. Now, two-thirds of them are suspected of committing still more crimes since this report came out –107 new crimes in all.”

This liberal ideology of criminal justice reform (catch and release) and compassion for the homeless via taxation has resulted in zero deterrents in Seattle and King County for the criminals and homeless. Absolutely no deterrents.

Proof of this comes from MyNorthwest.com about a homeless criminal, with severe mental health issues, who attempted to kidnap a child. He has an EXTENSIVE criminal record:

A 47-year-old man charged last week with a violent attempt to kidnap a 9-year-old girl and break into a South Seattle apartment has been arrested 104 previous times in King County over the last 14 years, according to court records.

Seattle police arrested Randolph Neil Humiston on May 30th at 14th Ave. South and South Henderson Street after he allegedly grabbed and dragged a girl on a playground, according to charging documents.

Prosecutors say the girl kicked and screamed at Humiston until he released her.

Ernesto Martinez, who lives a short distance from the playground told KIRO 7 he first saw Humiston when he broke into Martinez’s apartment while his family was having dinner. “I never saw him before, but I saw him, and I yelled and chased him,” Martinez said. Seattle police say Martinez chased Humiston for several blocks until patrol cars arrived and arrested Humiston — for the 105th time since 2005.

“I told the police that if he actually took a little girl, they would be arresting me instead of that guy. I mean, I’m not going to let that happen.”

Court records indicate many times, Humiston was released within a day or two after being arrested, and he consistently listed his address as the Compass Housing Alliance in Seattle, indicating he is homeless.

Prosecutors noted Humiston was placed in the jail’s psych ward in 2017, and would “likely commit an act of violence,” if released.

Records indicate a few of the cases were dismissed because Humiston was found to be incompetent.

Humiston’s career criminal conviction resume’ includes four felonies, and 38 gross misdemeanors including “Threats to Kill, Assault, Resisting Arrest, Stalking, Escape, Indecent Exposure, Possession of a Dangerous Weapon and many Vehicle Prowl” and multiple drug convictions, according to court records.

Humiston is currently being held on $150,000 bail. Martinez told KIRO 7 he will look for Humiston “In case he gets out again.”

“Somebody who’s trying to grab a little kid, especially when they’re all drugged up? He shouldn’t be out,” Martinez said. “If he gets out, it’s not a threat or anything, but if I see him here? I’m not going to just chase him, I’m going to tackle him.”

Keep electing these demorats, you silly Seattle voters. Just remember this: As Lophatt frequently reminds us, “They don’t work for us.”

Baltimore youth activity: Hundreds of teens attack and rob people at waterfront

Last Saturday at the waterfront (known as Inner Harbor) in Baltimore, hundreds of teens took to the streets to harass people. Here’s how the Baltimore Sun described it:

“Last Saturday, many teens spread messages online to meet in the Inner Harbor. As the day turned to night, the crowd swelled to more than 400, police estimate.

Most of the youth gathered peacefully, but as the night went on tensions escalated. Scattered fights broke out among the youth. Some tried to smash storefront windows, police said. Some walked in the middle of Pratt Street and blocked traffic. A half-dozen youths took a bicyclist to the ground and beat him. One teen jumped on the roofs of two parked cars. Another randomly kicked a passerby in the face, according to a video compiled and distributed by Baltimore Police.

Officers arrested six people and charged them with disorderly conduct, destruction of property, unarmed robbery and assault.

Meanwhile, police continue to search for eight teens who attacked a young couple outside an Inner Harbor steakhouse the night before. A 32-year-old woman was beaten in the face and hospitalized at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, Worley said.

“It was a severe enough injury that at one point they thought she may lose her eye,” said Worley, adding that doctors no longer believe she will lose her eye. “It was a vicious attack — unprovoked at all. The couple were walking to their car.”

Police have made no arrests. Detectives are working to enhance surveillance camera footage and identify the attackers.”

Bill de Blasio plans expansion of no-bail program for teens suspected of violent crimes

From NY Post: Mayor Bill de Blasio on Tuesday defended his plan to triple the number of teens who are freed from city jails without bail on violent charges including armed robbery and assault.

“We’re ensuring there are real alternatives to incarceration particularly for our young New Yorkers,” the mayor said at an unrelated press conference, responding to a question about The Post’s front page story revealing the no-bail expansion.

“We need to focus on getting them on the right track. We need to support them. We need to make sure they’re being redeemed — not just locked up,” he said.

New guidelines from the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice will also increase the number of adults who qualify for de Blasio’s no-bail Supervised Release Program by boosting the eligibility age from 17 to 19. The program will be broadened to include first- and second-degree robbery, assault and burglary. The changes go into effect on Saturday.

Hizzoner tried to downplay the inclusion of the more serious charges claiming, “We’re talking about folks who have done offenses, lesser offenses.”

He said accused subway saboteur Isaiah Thompson, 23, who is suspected of causing nearly 1,000 train delays by pulling the e-brake and other stunts, is a “different kind of case.”

“I don’t think we should make our laws and rules based on the real exception cases,” he said.

Thompson’s been arrested 17 times since 2017, according to police, yet remained free to pull the pranks until he was arraigned earlier this month and held on $5,000 cash bail.

The mayor said his reforms are not at odds with a recent opinion piece by his police commissioner James O’Neill who wrote that state law doesn’t allow judges to consider the “dangerousness” of a defendant when determining whether to set bail. “That’s something Albany still should do. I agree with the police commissioner on that– that needs to be done,’ he said.

The mayor also dismissed concerns that judges, who are supposed to have discretion for granting entry to the Supervised Release Program, will feel pressure to follow the guidelines to save their jobs. “Oh no, no — judges are going to make their own decisions. We’re providing them an option they’re going to decide what makes sense,” de Blasio pledged.

The Mayor’s Advisory Committee on the Judiciary reviews and recommends candidates for the bench.

Washington State to release man early who committed horrific hate crime (after racking up 17 felonies)

Progressives claim to be proponents and champions of defending minorities against hate crimes. Yet when it comes to actually punishing those responsible for their acts, the justice systems in place tell a different story.

Back in March of this year, a white man beat an Indian-American man very badly while calling him “blackie.”

The victim, Sandeep Ray, was beaten by William Kraft, a man who had racked up 17 felonies in 13 years. KIRO 7 News had this story about Ray’s beating:

Kraft kicked Ray in the head as he laid on the ground. Then took off his shirt and used it to strangle Ray. Then while on all fours, he started choking Ray with his hands. A bystander finally stopped the attack.

Kraft’s mother and sister plead for leniency Friday. “He has had mental illness and he’s tried to self-medicate with drugs. And also the abuse was mentioned when he was younger,” said Lisa Kraft, his mom.

“This awful thing that William did is not a reflection of who my brother is,” said Catherine Kraft, his sister.

And Kraft apologized for his crimes. “I wake up every day and it just doesn’t seem real. So I’d like to very sincerely apologize to Mr. Ray,” he said.

The judge acknowledged it all — but also noted Kraft’s criminal history and the severity of this crime.

Charging documents said, “The defendant has a criminal history which includes two counts of Assault 2 in 2004, Assault 3 in 2015, Malicious Mischief 3 in 2014, Obstructing in 2014, DUI in 2011. He has eight warrants since 2004.”

“This is your second strike,” said Judge John McHale. “It was an act of terror. So I’m going to follow the state’s recommendation,” he said, sentencing him to nearly five years in prison.”

Turns out this “act of terror” wasn’t bad enough to warrant the perp a full jail sentence. According to MyNorthwest.com, the perp will walk free a year earlier than expected.

The perp had given Mr. Ray a concussion and was unable to return to work for a week. Mr. Ray “remained in such excruciating pain for weeks afterward that he even thought at times, “[Kraft] should have killed me that night, then it would be over for me.”

The Washington State Department of Corrections is releasing the perp Kraft early because of “good behavior.”

You can see video of the attack here.

There are several lessons here: 1) conceal carry, 2) don’t rely on police to protect/save you, and 3) don’t count on liberal prosecutors to seek appropriate charges/convictions.

And don’t elect liberals who claim to have “a national reputation as a leader in effective criminal justice reform.”

Also, don’t elect liberals who refuse to acknowledge/take any action on the large number of repeat offenders within their jurisdiction.

Homeless man in Seattle uses bear spray to set fire to pedestrian out for a walk

Even the homeless know they need to be armed in Seattle…

As reported by MyNorthwest.com: Thomas Warmack may go by the longtime nickname “Candle,” but he did not expect to be set on fire while out for a walk with his girlfriend at Ravenna Park two weeks ago.

He had just sat down on a bench near the park’s baseball field to make a phone call around 11 a.m. Suddenly and with no apparent provocation, a man came up to him and violently assaulted him.

“A guy comes running up, mumbling gosh knows what, and then yells out, ‘Stop [expletive] with me,’ when no one is even messing with the person, and tries to stab me in the neck with a coat-hanger, and attempts to stab me in the stomach with a big stick,” Warmack told KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson.

Warmack yelled at the man to stop, and warned that he would call the police. In response, the attacker allegedly sprayed Warmack with bear spray, which is highly flammable, and set his arm and chest on fire.

Luckily, Warmack and his girlfriend put the fire out quickly, but Warmack did not realize at first how serious the burns were. They were later deemed second-degree, he said.

He informed police of the attack and they later arrested the suspect. Police said that he is homeless and that this is not his first violent incident.

“Prior to attacking me, he came up and attacked a friend of mine’s husband,” Warmack said. “And before him, eight other people — so the guy was already known around Ravenna Park and the Ave area as someone who was attacking other people.”

While Warmack is relieved his attacker is off the street, he would rather the man spend time in a mental health facility than time behind bars. “He needs mental health, not incarceration … lock him up in Western State,” he recommended.

Liberal utopia of Seattle: Drugstore employees subject to violent assaults as criminals become more brazen

Progressive-run Seattle has serious problems with 1) homeless criminals, 2) drug addicts, 3) the mentally ill, 4) prostitutes 5) police response time and 6) a county prosecutor who is more interested in social justice than having people doing time for their crimes. You can find one of my many, many, many posts on Seattle’s issues if you search “Seattle” in our search bar. For a brief summary of what is happening in that city, watch “Seattle is Dying.”

The video summarizes how the bureaucrats have put their progressive social justice agenda above any concrete actions to effectively deal with their problems.

The city’s problems are so severe that drugstore employees are routinely harassed and physically beaten at the downtown Seattle Bartell drugstore. Imagine fearing for your life by working as a cashier in downtown Seattle.

Hanna Kim for Q13 Fox reports that Bartell Drugs CEO Kathi Lentzsch says it will not open any more stores in downtown Seattle after violent assaults on employees. The CEO has been surprised over the number of incidents and the violence she is seeing in Seattle.

Excerpts from Kim’s report:

“Surveillance videos inside Bartell Drugs have captured countless shoplifting cases. In one incident, video shows a man in one aisle quickly running off with up to $700 worth of skincare products.

Lentzsch says many times the criminals are bold and many of them are repeat offenders. “They will stand in front of our staff with a basket full of products and tell them we know you can’t come after us and walk out the door,” Lentzsch said.

We’ve had too many cases of employees ending up in the hospital or with very serious issues,” Lentzsch said. Multiple employees have been rushed to the hospital because of violent assaults.

Sometimes it’s shoplifting that escalates to assaults or just unprovoked attacks. The situation is concerning enough that the company is rethinking their future in the downtown core of Seattle.

In one case, cameras captured a pharmacist stumbling back with a broken nose. The company says he asked a shoplifter if he could help them pay for the items he had witnessed the suspect stealing. “We have an individual who had two surgeries in December from being assaulted,” Lentzsch said.

Most of the times there is nothing employees can do but just pick up the pieces, like the time a man lashed out and trashed the store. He appeared to be going through a psychotic episode.

The company says they have off duty police officers at two of their downtown Seattle branches.

In one of those branches a woman tried to come after an employee despite a police officer standing in front of the worker. It took multiple officers to subdue the woman. “Where we would like help is the violent offenders, it was startling to me how different the city had become,” Lentzsch said.

Lentzsch says for things to get better, city leaders and community members have to work together.

She doesn’t blame any one entity for the complicated situation. She says mental illness, drug addiction and homelessness all play a role in the uptick in violence.

Lentzsch says this is not a Bartell Drug problem because her competitors are facing the same issue and so are many other businesses across Seattle.”

#BelieveAllWomen: Climate change expert charged with choking fiancé, woman fears for her life

Aaron Doering can’t control his passion…

From NY Post: A well-known climate change expert and professor at the University of Minnesota choked and brutally assaulted his fiancée, who told cops she fears he will kill her, according to a criminal complaint.

Aaron Herbert Doering, a 47-year-old tenured professor and the director of the Minneapolis University’s Learning Technologies Media Lab, was charged Thursday with two felony counts of domestic assault by strangulation in Hennepin County District Court, the Star Tribune reports.

Doering — who also serves as a fellow for the Royal Canadian Geographic Society and regularly appears on media outlets to discuss climate change, sustainability and related topics — had to be separated from his fiancée by responding officers when they got to the couple’s apartment in Minneapolis, according to a criminal complaint obtained by the newspaper.

The woman, who had bruises on her neck and red marks on her forehead, told police Doering had dragged her through the apartment by her hair before beating her and choking her to the point that she thought she would lose consciousness, the complaint shows.

“Victim believes [Doering] will kill her if he returns to the apartment,” according to the court document.

The woman claimed that the alleged assault was not the first time she had been victimized by Doering. She also provided police with photographs to back up those claims.

Doering, who remains jailed in Hennepin County on $40,000 bond, is set to make his initial court appearance Friday afternoon, county records show.

Doering’s status at the university remained unchanged as of late Thursday, a spokeswoman told the Star Tribune.
“We’re aware of the situation and will be reviewing the matter,” director of public relations Lacey Nygard said. A message seeking additional comment from university officials was not immediately returned early Friday.

Doering’s website bills him as an explorer with a “passion for education and change” and details some of his lectures to more than 15 million students, as well as his dog-sledding trips and more than 5,000 miles exploring the Arctic since 2004. His latest project, “The Changing Earth,” is an Emmy-nominated documentary about a 137-mile trek through the Arctic wilderness into Iceland.

“Aaron has received millions of dollars in grants; has published more than 80 journal articles, books, book chapters, and conference proceedings; and is the coauthor of two books, The New Landscape of Mobile Learning: Redesigning Education in an App-based World and Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching,” the website reads.

Doering’s Twitter account, which has nearly 4,000 followers, identifies him as an adventurer and is peppered with photos of extreme Canadian Arctic locales, as well as his young son.

Liberal utopia of the Pacific Northwest: Cops never show up to armed robbery, assault in Snohomish County

And yet the proggies in that area continue to try and strip citizens of their Second Amendment right. I am so glad I moved away from that area.

From MyNorthwest.com: (Correction to story below) The Everett Police Department reports this crime did not happen within its jurisdiction. The original story has been updated.

The field manager of a Puget Sound business is puzzled why it took police so long to show up for a violent crime last week.

Dave Igel is the field manager for Morris-Hansen Enterprises Everett, a company that cleans windows up and down the I-5 corridor.

Last Wednesday, Morris-Hansen employees were cleaning windows at a bank in Everett when Igel said they noticed two thieves stealing from their work van. Upon approach by an employee, Igel said one of the thieves drew a gun, stating, “This is my van,” while the other sucker-punched the employee.

“By then, the other guy had come around the van and drew the gun, and told him to give him his wallet,” Igel described. “And he wouldn’t, so [the thief] struck him a few times with the pistol. He finally gave [the wallet] up.”

The bank reported an armed robbery and assault, but police did not show up, according to Igel. After an hour-and-a-half of waiting, the victims finally went to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office to report the crime.

“The guy told them, ‘These guys are being assaulted by guns in our parking lot,’ and nobody showed up,” Igel said.

Igel cannot understand why Everett police did not at least “check for fingerprints or check for video footage.” (Editor’s note: The crime did not happen in EPD jurisdiction.)

He said that he is a firm supporter of police officers and does not blame individual cops. However, he does blame local leadership for “not letting the police actually do their job” so that cops are “walking around with their hands tied.”

The violent experience was so harrowing for the employee whose wallet was stolen, that in the 10 days since the crime, he quit his job and moved back home to Texas.

“He freaked out because they took his wallet, and he was afraid they were going to come to his house,” Igel said. “He just freaked out and quit, and packed everything, and moved back to Texas.”

For that man, Igel said, the armed theft was the last strike after witnessing crimes all over the Puget Sound while on the job.

“He said he’s just seen enough around here — he said he’s been approached by so many different vagrants on the street … Texas isn’t like this, they don’t have it like this, where you have vagrant people all over the place,” Igel said.

Igel said he has witnessed countless crimes in his travels throughout the region for work, in particular downtown Seattle.

I love my job, but if everything is going to drive me away from this state, it’s going to be this city [of Seattle],” Igel said. “It’s insane trying to live around here.”

He holds out hope that new leadership will be elected to better handle the region’s drug and property crime crisis — especially when seven Seattle City Council members are on the ballot next year. “I hope the people that are up for re-election do not get re-elected because something has got to change around here,” he said.

#BelieveWomen? Charges dropped against cop due to “sophisticated ruse”

This is why we have due process, proggies.

From MyNorthwest: All charges against a former Bellevue (Washington) police officer were dropped Monday when prosecutors stated that he did not commit the crimes he was arrested for, which were part of a “sophisticated ruse” put forth by the accuser.

KIRO Radio’s Hanna Scott reports that the King County Prosecutor’s Office is dropping charges against John Kivlin, and is not pursuing rape charges against another Bellevue cop Richard Newell.

According to court documents the accuser “fabricated evidence and used a sophisticated ruse to deceive Kivlin, law enforcement, prosecutors, and the court in order to have Kivlin taken into custody and charged with additional crimes. The result of the (accuser’s) fabrication was that law enforcement arrested Kivlin for crimes he did not commit, prosecutors filed charges against Kivlin for crimes he did not commit, and the court held Kivlin in custody for order violations which he did not commit.”

Kivlin was arrested in April and accused of assaulting his girlfriend twice. The two reportedly met on Craigslist and began a relationship in 2015. But the woman began making allegations against Kivlin and other Bellevue police officers in 2018. After Kivlin was arrested and released for the assault allegations, he reportedly contacted the woman in violation of a court order in July. He was then charged with witness tampering.

Kivlin was arrested again for contacting the woman in August. But prosecutors say the woman making the allegations was lying this time. After inspecting Kivlin’s phone and billing records, it appears that the woman got Kivlin to text with her using a fake name in August.

Prosecutor’s add that she admitted that rape allegations she previously made in 2009 and 2010 were also false.

Prosecutors said that they are not pursuing previous charges in light of the recent developments and the accuser’s lack of credibility.

The case has also wrapped up Bellevue Police Chief Steve Mylett in allegations. Those allegations are under investigation by the Bothell Police Department and have not been made public. Mylett has been placed on leave. Despite not initially knowing the nature of the allegations, the chief denied them.

The woman who waged allegations against Kivlin and Chief Mylett also accused another Bellevue officer, Richard Newell. No charges were filed against him. He has also resigned from the police department.
