Florida “non-violent” offender released from jail due to Wuhan virus arrested for second-degree murder

Freed perp arrested for second degree murder/Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office photo

Who could have predicted that a criminal would not “take advantage of this health emergency to commit crimes?”

While the majority of law-abiding citizens are ordered to stay home, criminals are given a free pass in order to “save lives.”

Such is the case in Hillsborough County, Florida. WFLA reports that Joseph Edwards Williams was awaiting resolution of a low-level, non-violent offense. He was released from custody until trial.

The day after his release he was arrested for second-degree murder. The only other details provided are “second degree murder with a firearm, a gun charge and resisting an officer.”

The perp was originally in jail for possession of heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia.

No worries, though. The good Sheriff has called upon the State Attorney to prosecute this perp to the fullest extent of the law.

Judge finds that illegal alien cleared in Kate Steinle killing incompetent to stand trial for gun charges

From SF Gate: A Mexican man illegal alien who was acquitted of killing a woman on a San Francisco pier in a case that became a national flashpoint was found incompetent to stand trial Friday on federal gun charges.

U.S. District Court Judge Vince Chhabria (appointed by Obama) said in a court order that a psychiatric evaluator had concluded Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate was not competent to stand trial “because of mental illness that is not presently being treated.”

Chhabria said he would meet with lawyers from both sides next week to discuss the next steps. If either side objects to the findings, a hearing would likely be required to examine Garcia-Zarate’s competency. If neither side disputes the findings, the court will discuss whether the defendant should be treated locally for mental illness or sent to a federal facility outside California.

Defense attorney Tony Serra said he would contest the finding. “He is entitled to a hearing,” Serra said. “I’m protesting that he is competent enough for this case.”

Friday’s decision is the latest delay to a case that touched off a national debate over immigration and sanctuary city policies.

Garcia-Zarate was due to stand trial in January for two counts of illegal gun possession. But Chhabria postponed the trial for an evaluation amid concerns about his “apparent mental illness.”

President Donald Trump and others in his administration have repeatedly pointed to the case as a reason for toughening the country’s immigration policies. Garcia-Zarate was living in the country illegally and had been deported five times before the shooting.

Jurors in California court found him not guilty of killing Kate Steinle in 2015. But they convicted him of being a felon in possession of a gun, leading to a three-year jail sentence.

A state appeals court threw out the conviction last August, finding that jurors received improper instructions from the trial judge. Federal prosecutors then charged him with gun possession in 2017.

Garcia-Zarate acknowledged holding the gun that killed Steinle. But he said it fired accidentally when he found it wrapped in a T-shirt under a bench on the pier, where Steinle was walking with her father.

The weapon belonged to a U.S. Bureau of Land Management ranger who reported it stolen from his parked car.

The case fueled criticism of San Francisco’s sanctuary city policy, which limits local officials from cooperating with federal immigration authorities on deportations.

The San Francisco sheriff’s department released Garcia-Zarate from jail several weeks before the shooting despite a federal request to detain him until immigration authorities could take him into custody.

Chicago man on probation for robbery charged with double homicide

What do you know…another criminal who didn’t follow the laws and received lenient punishment. It’s almost appears that Chiraq’s strict gun control laws are meant to punish law-abiding citizens.

Alvin Thomas/Chicago Police photo

From MyFoxChicago: A 20-year-old man on probation for a robbery conviction is now charged in connection with a Sunday robbery in Chinatown where two men were shot to death when they resisted, police say.

Alvin Thomas, of South Shore, faces two counts of first-degree murder in the early morning shooting Feb. 9 in the 2000 block of South Wells Street, Chicago police said.

Huayi Bian, 36, and Weizhong Xiong, 38, were standing in the parking lot of an apartment complex with a 44-year-old woman about 2:13 a.m. when a man walked up and tried to rob them, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The woman complied, but the men resisted, at which point the man fired multiple shots, police said. Both men were shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene. The woman wasn’t hurt.

Thomas was arrested minutes later at 2:27 a.m. in the 2100 block of South Archer Avenue, police said. He is due for a bail hearing Tuesday.

At the time of his arrest, Thomas was on probation for a 2018 robbery charge in Chicago, according to county records. He was released on home electronic monitoring after posting a $5,000 bond, and pleaded guilty to the charge in July 2019. He was sentenced to two years probation with credit for 319 days already served, county records state.

While out on bond, Thomas was charged with manufacture and delivery of cannabis in February 2019, but the charge was dropped the next month, according to county records.

Man who shot up NYPD Bronx station just got out of jail for machine gun charge

According to the NY Post, this perp just got out of jail for a machine gun charge, has a homicide on his record, arrest for gun possession, and ambushed two cops the previous night.

Yet Gov. Cuomo claims New York has the “toughest gun control laws in the US.”

Maybe he means toughest for law-abiding citizens…

Washington State gun control laws designed to punish law-abiding citizens

Demorats’ gun control laws are conduits to achieving their utopia: Removing firearms from law-abiding citizens.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee speaks, Thursday, Feb. 2, 2017, at the Capitol in Olympia, Wash. Inslee was urging the passage of bills enforcing safe gun storage and enhanced background checks when buying or selling assault weapons. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren) ORG XMIT: WATW110

Washington State (run by demorats) has implemented numerous gun control laws that have had no effect on criminal behaviors.

Earlier this month the Seattle Police Department (SPD) released its annual report on gun violence, and statistics show the number of shootings in 2019 is up from 2018. One of the causes is an increase in gang-related violence.

Instead of addressing the root cause of gun violence, Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson believes part of the solution is to ban “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines.

Proof that demorats only want to control legal firearms is the fact that known criminals are routinely set free to terrorize tax-paying citizens. There is a severe lack of proper punishment for criminals due to – in my opinion – social justice warriors’ desire for “criminal justice reform.”

Look at what happened in Seattle this week: Three shootings where one person was killed. The majority injured happened at a shooting on Tuesday in downtown Seattle in broad daylight (7 injured, the 1 killed).

Guess who the perps were? “KNOWN GANG MEMBERS.”

MyNorthwest.com has more details about these KNOWN perps:

“KIRO 7’s Amy Clancy reports that police are searching for a pair of 24-year-old male suspects who are both “known to SPD,” according to a source in law enforcement.

Clancy went on to note that court documents reveal both suspects are “‘documented gang members’ with extensive criminal histories.” Those documents detail multiple arrests for robbery, theft, and false statements to a public servant among other charges, for one suspect, while the other had been “booked 11 times since 2014” for theft, domestic violence, a DUI, and violating a no contact order.”

MyNorthwest.com reports that 45 police units were dispatched to the scene at the time of the shooting.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best said to expect a strong police present in the area “until further notice.”

Read the whole story here.

Until further notice you can expect that since the criminal justice system does not adequately punish criminals, they will not follow any gun control laws.

And until further notice, you can expect that demorats will continue in their efforts to strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment right.

Heroism and Second Amendment rights set aside: USA Today pushes a gun control narrative

USA Today tweeted yesterday the following: “Opinion: Jack Wilson is exactly the type of person you want around with a gun because he’s a firearms instructor. But we know nothing about the at least six other parishioners who also appeared to draw their handguns. And that’s terrifying.

“Journalist” Elvia Diaz

From the headline at the opinion piece: “Armed, even in church: Texas shooting is about a lot more than Jack Wilson’s heroism”

The author, a journalist named Elvia Diaz, further asks, “Jack Wilson is a hero. But why were so many other parishioners armed? And how did the shooter get his gun, given his criminal history?

She’s asking so many questions, let me help her out with a few answers…

For example, why must one be armed in church? Because evil exists EVERYWHERE, Elvia.
Why were so many parishioners armed? Because of the Second Amendment.
How did a criminal get a gun? Because criminals DO NOT FOLLOW the law.

Here’s excerpts from her opinion piece:

“Jack Wilson is a hero alright. It took him only six seconds to kill a gunman at a Texas church, saving countless lives.

Unfortunately, that kind of split-second heroism has been turned into a PR tool by gun advocates.

The reality of Wilson’s heroism is a lot more complex. He wasn’t just an ordinary parishioner, as gun advocates may want you to believe. The church’s volunteer security team member is a firearms instructor, gun range owner and former reserve deputy with a local sheriff’s department, according to a New York Times detailed account.

The real story here isn’t heroism

Of course, that wouldn’t matter to the churchgoers of that community of roughly 18,000 residents, right? What matters is that Wilson saved them with a single shot and other gun-wielding parishioners were ready just in case Wilson failed.

But have we really reached a point when each of us need to carry a firearm anywhere we go? Gun advocates certainly think so. They point to Wilson and the new Texas law that allows him and others to carry firearms inside the church.

The Second Amendment gives Americans the right to bear arms. And that isn’t going anywhere. But that constitutional amendment doesn’t spell out the types of firearms Americans should bear, nor does it give Americans the right to sell them to anyone to carry anywhere.

We know firearms are readily available to anyone who wants one, really. And that’s part of the problem. Sunday’s shooting isn’t just about Jack Wilson’s heroism. It’s about how Kinnunen got a hold of a weapon in the first place, given his criminal record.

If this womyn has NO CLUE as to how a criminal can obtain a gun as a prohibited possessor, I can’t help her. She’s intent on pushing a gun control narrative.

And shame on her for turning Jack Wilson’s excellent taxpayer relief shot that resulted in saving human lives into a “PR stunt” by gun advocates.

Liberal Narrative: You don’t care about gun control until someone you know dies from gun violence

Oh you silly libs, you’d be very wrong and uninformed about my opinion of gun violence and gun control.

I care about gun control and write about it a lot on this blog. And I write about the victims who die from gun violence despite the strict gun control laws already in place. See the following examples:

This is Chiraq: 8 killed, 40 wounded during another weekend of violence
This is Chiraq: 43 shot (2 killed) during weekend violence
This is Chiraq: 45 shot – 4 fatally – during weekend violence
Gun control, Chiraq style: 44 shot – 8 fatally – since Friday night
The left’s narrative vs. facts about gun control laws and mass shootings
Gun control, Chiraq style: 6 shot at baby shower (including 2 kids); witnesses not cooperating with investigators
After Philadelphia Police shootout, demorats call for more gun control. How about stricter penalties for prohibited possessors and better enforcement?
Liberal utopia of California: Prohibited possessor & career criminal who killed Sacramento County deputy flaunted his guns on social media
Shocker, not: Washington state gun laws didn’t prevent ICE detention center Antifa goon from illegally obtaining firearm
#MarchForOurLives: Remember Kate Steinle and those responsible for her death

There is one simple fact that liberals will never comprehend: criminals do not obey gun control laws.

You can never make enough laws to guarantee good behavior from people who are willing to break the law.

But let’s face it, progressives only want one thing anyway: To take away your guns.

Until you can guarantee me that more gun control laws will prevent a perp from entering my home and trying to harm me, I’ll keep my firearms for my protection, TYVM.

Immoral: Illegal alien, 19, arrested in connection with four Nevada murders

Illegal alien wanted in connection with four murders/Washoe County Sheriff’s Office photo

Four American citizens permanently separated from their families and friends.

From Fox News: Investigators in northern Nevada said a suspect in the murders of four people, three of them women, is in custody on an immigration hold and other charges.

Wilbur Ernesti Martinez-Guzman, 19, was arrested Saturday afternoon by deputies from the Carson County Sheriff’s Office, Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam told a news conference Sunday.

“We feel confident we have the evidence to link him to all four homicides,” Balaam said.

Investigators said the killings started on or around Jan. 10 in Gardnerville, a town south of Carson City. Connie Koontz, 56, was found shot and killed in her home. On Jan. 13, 74-year-old Sophia Renken was found dead in her home approximately a mile away from Koontz.

The FBI joined the investigation after the bodies of married couple Gerald David, 81, and Sharon David, 80, were found in their home on the southern edge of Reno Wednesday. Balaam told The Associated Press on Friday that all four killings were similar in the use of a firearm and the removal of objects from the victims’ homes.

The sheriff urged residents to turn on outside lights, secure their homes and refuse to open the door for anyone they didn’t know.

On Sunday, Douglas County Sheriff Dan Coverley told the Reno and Carson City communities: “We feel strongly that we have the man responsible for this and that you can continue to go about your daily activities and live normally.”

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong told reporters a tip led investigators to surveil Martinez-Guzman, who had lived in the Carson City area for approximately one year. Furlong added that immigration officials had said that Martinez-Guzman “was likely in the United States illegally and was detainable.”

Martinez-Guzman was being held in the Carson City Jail on Sunday and was charged with burglary, possession of stolen property and obtaining money under false pretenses. Furlong added that an immigration hold had been placed on the suspect, who was not known to his office.

Washoe County District Attorney Chris Hicks said authorities would seek arrest warrants against Martinez-Guzman for the murders “in the coming days.”

Gun control, Chiraq style: Man who fired gun & linked to deaths of two Chicago Police officers could be released soon

Perp Edward Brown: Just wanted to see if the pistol worked….or something

The perp said he “found” a pistol and “wanted to see if it worked.”

The perp is “hanging in there” after the two officers lost their lives.

Despicable.

From MyFoxChicago: The man being held in connection with the deaths of the two Chicago police officers who were killed by a train could soon be released from jail, as a community group says it’s helping to get Edward Brown released on bond.

It was four weeks ago Monday night that Brown was arrested for alleging firing the gunshots which led officers Conrad Gary and Eduardo Marmolejo onto the railroad tracks where they were hit by a train.

Brown is still in jail, needing $20,000 for release on bond. “He’s hanging in there,” said defense attorney Frank Koustoros. “You know, nobody wants to be in jail, but he’s hanging in there.”

It looks like Brown could be released very soon.

“We are planning to post bond this week, yes,” said Sharlyn Grace of Chicago Community Bond Fund. “We’re just waiting on a couple more things to come through.”

The Chicago Community Bond Fund uses donated dollars to help defendants post bond and remain free while fighting their cases. “When a case like this that’s high profile comes up, we know it’s even more important than usual that somebody really enjoys the presumption of innocence,” said Grace.

Brown was back in court Monday where prosecutors revealed he’s been indicted on the two weapons charges for which he was arrested.

Members of Brown’s family, including his mother, were in the courtroom, but through his attorney, they declined to talk about the case.

“He’s not alone in this world,” said Koustoros. “He has a lot of love and support from his family and friends.”
The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) wanted a felony murder charge.

“We are continually disappointed with the Kim Foxx administration when the police are the victims of crime,” said an FOP spokesperson.

The spokesperson added the FOP will be shocked and disappointed if Brown gets out on bond.

Man accused of Portland execution-style shootings was convicted felon under Washington state supervision, living in public housing

Career criminal James Javontae Barquet

Not enough gun control laws can stop a determined, career criminal. Nor can the justice system, apparently.

This past Monday, an 11-time convicted felon shot and killed two people – execution style – in two separate incidents in Portland, Oregon.

According to Oregon Live, the perp is James Javontae Barquet (age 26) who is now charged with aggravated murder charges, first-degree robbery and felon in possession of a firearm.

Barquet killed 70-year-old Carol Horner and 51-year-old Brian Hansen with single shots using a .45-caliber pistol. Barquet shot both victims in the head.

Read about the details of the killings here.

Oregon Live provides more information about this career criminal:

  • Barquet lived at Longfellow Creek apartments in Seattle, a public housing complex.
  • Barquet has 11 felony convictions in Washington dating back to 2011.
  • His prior convictions include drug possession, theft, robbery, unlawful possession of a firearm and riot with a deadly weapon.
  • The perp was released from state prison on July 11 after serving seven months for felony possession of a controlled substance.
  • Barquet entered a state supervision program two days later, where he met weekly with a community corrections officers.
  • The Washington State Department of Corrections officer was unaware that Barquet had traveled to Oregon. 

Unlawful possession of a firearm is a Class A misdemeanor in Oregon, punishable by up to one year in prison. Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon is a Class C felony in Oregon, punishable by up to five years in prison.

I wonder if Barquet every served full sentences for his previous offenses?

More proof that gun control laws cannot control the free will of a man intent on committing crimes.
