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.”

CVS employee fired for tackling pharmacy robber

The employee’s mom didn’t raise a wussy.

From NY Post: A CVS employee from Indiana says both he and a pharmacist were fired after fighting off a man threatening to steal oxycodone.

CVS axed Zac Phillips, from Greenfield, days after he and the pharmacist, who is not being publicly identified, tackled suspect Jagger Maupin, 22, to the floor on Nov. 8.

Phillips worked at CVS for five years, WISH-TV reported.

“You really don’t have time to think in these situations, it happened in a flash,” Phillips said. “(They) showed my pharmacist a note saying ‘This is a pharmacy robbery.”

Phillips said CVS told him and the pharmacist that they violated store policy by “initiating a physical confrontation.” But Phillips claims he was merely acting in defense after seeing the suspect push the pharmacist.

“I was defending myself, defending my pharmacist,” Phillips told Fox 59“If we get attacked, we are not even allowed to defend ourselves.”

Surveillance footage from the incident shows Phillips and the pharmacist wrestling the suspect to the floor as the suspect is trying to run out the door.

Following the incident, police arrested Maupin a block away from the store and charged him with robbery, resisting law enforcement, obstruction of justice, theft and battery. He was not armed.

Phillips believes if he hadn’t prevented Maupin from getting drugs, something worse could have happened.

When you have a half-second to think about it, you don’t think about policy, you think about friend’s life, and who this guy might endanger if he had gotten drugs?” Phillips told WISH-TV.

CVS released the following statement: “The safety and well-being of our customers and employees is always our highest priority. We have stringent security policies and procedures in place to prohibit actions by employees that would jeopardize their safety and the safety of others. The actions of two employees at our Greenfield store during a recent attempted robbery violated those policies and procedures by initiating a physical confrontation, which led to our decision to separate them from the company.”

A Little Techie Stuff. How To Recover Lost Pics And Vids

You may just be a goof like me and hit the wrong button.   Hey it was an accident. Know what? I froze, I googled, and I found a program and got files back. Now if you read this there could be other reasons you want/need them back. Good luck                          ~ Steve~

WANT TO KNOW HOW TO RECOVER DELETED PHOTOS AND VIDEO FROM YOUR DEVICES?

May. 9, 2013 10:44am Liz Klimas   www.theblaze.com

Last week, the story of parents who had their baby seized by police went viral. Video shows Sacramento Police Department officers entering the home of Anna and Alex Nikolayev without a warrant and saying they were going to “grab” the baby and advising the parents not to resist or fight. The Russian couple’s lawyer though believes law enforcement and child protective services overstepped their bounds.

Now imagine how difficult this portion of the case could be without video evidence. Image if the video and pictures of police taking the baby away were deleted.

Carlos Miller, who runs the Photography Is Not a Crime blog, has had content on his recording equipment deleted a couple times by law enforcement, he believes. And he has a message for those who have had pictures or video deleted by cops or accidentally by themselves: “It doesn’t completely disappear.”

In fact, Miller last year was acquitted from all charges after he was able to recover deleted video showing he was not resisting arrest or breaking any other laws. He is now trying to obtain enough evidence to bring a case against the Miami police department and the individual he believes wrongfully took his camera and deleted its content.

Everything Miller learned about recovering deleted images and video was self-taught from the Web and help from a tech friend. The most important thing to know, he said, is to not take any more photos or video if you believe your content has been deleted.

Once you realize that video has been deleted, put your camera aside and figure out a way to recover it,” he said.

There are programs that can help you recover such content. Pictures are easier to get back than video due to the size.

For photos stored on Millers Sandisk memory card, the program recommended that he used is RescuePro. Video was a bit tricker because it took longer to sift through all the recovered content to find the portions he was looking for, but he used the program PhotoRec.

Just recently Alex Heid with Federal Jack and HackMiami went through this process when his own video, which deleted allegedly by Miami police upon his arrest. He details in this video how he recovered his footage:

Even better than going through any of this process though is to not put yourself in a situation where your footage could be deleted in the first place. The easiest way to protect against this is by password protecting your phone, which is the device Miller said the average citizen
would likely be using to film or take pictures these days.

Another recommendation Miller had was to consider using an app that would automatically begin transferring pictures and video into cloud storage. On a PINAC forum is a discussion on just these types of programs.

One user with an Android phone suggests Bambuser and Dropbox.

Dropbox will automatically upload video (or pictures) when off button is pushed or recording stopped. Just make sure the app is running in the background. Not live streaming, will only upload after recording stopped,” rick wrote. “Bambuser is live streaming and will continue to record and upload even after off button is pushed. Unsent data is saved to phone and can be uploaded later to complete video record. As always, test these apps under different situations and know their ins and outs.”

Dropbox, another user cautions though, won’t upload video on iOS devices unless the user is connected to WiFi, but it will do so through a data package on Android.

So, whether you accidentally hit the trash button or if your photos and video were purposefully deleted, these are methods you can recover or preserve your data.

Miller’s ultimate goal is to change a mentality he thinks some officers have when it comes to “creating their own truth.”

Cops have to rethink that they can’t just create their own truth anymore,” Miller said.
