  • ‘Rideshare Rapist’ (illegal alien) charged in SF with posing as driver, assaulting passengers

    The Washington Post ^ | July 26, 2018 | Meagan Flynn
    It was always the same M.O.: The man disguised as a ride-share company driver would pull up outside a bar in San Francisco, approaching a woman who appeared to be looking for her ride. The car would have ride-share tags on it. But when the woman got in, the driver would not take her home. Instead, he would take her elsewhere and violently rape her. It happened first in 2013. Police were able to obtain forensic evidence from the sexual assault — the suspect’s DNA — and promptly entered it into the FBI’s national database known as CODIS. But there...

    The nation's top voting machine maker has admitted in a letter to a federal lawmaker that the company installed remote-access software on election-management systems it sold over a period of six years, raising questions about the security of those systems and the integrity of elections that were conducted with them. In a letter sent to Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) in April and obtained recently by Motherboard, Election Systems and Software acknowledged that it had "provided pcAnywhere remote connection software … to a small number of customers between 2000 and 2006," which was installed on the election-management system ES&S sold them....

    Mayor Sadiq Khan rebuffed US President Donald Trump’s contention that immigrants from Africa and Asia are responsible for rising levels of violent crime in London and other parts of Europe. “The fact that rising numbers of immigrants happen to coincide with rising levels of violence doesn’t prove that the immigrants themselves are the ones responsible,” Khan argued. “Let me point out that the levels of violence in the countries of origin of these immigrants are higher than they are in London. This leads me to think that to a certain extent we are moderating their behavior and reducing the global...

    London Mayor Sadiq Khan slammed President Trump’s criticism of him as “preposterous” after allowing a giant Trump balloon at anti-Trump protests in London, but critics question whether the mayor should be devoting his energy to tackling crime rather than “embarrassing” the city in front of the whole world. Trump reignited the feud with Khan in an interview with The Sun newspaper, saying the Mayor of London “has done a terrible job” when it comes to terrorism and crime. “I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the horrible things going on there, with...
  • Baltimore police have 'stopped noticing crime' after Freddie Gray riots

    A remarkable article in USA Today confirms what common sense and intelligent observation have told us for years.  Immediately following the Baltimore race riots that ensued after Freddie Gray was found dead in the back of a police van, Baltimore cops began to "stop noticing crime."  They still responded swiftly to calls for help.  But the police force turned a blind eye to crimes being committed right in front of them. The analysis by USA Today examined millions of Baltimore police records and determined that shocking rise in crime occurred that was directly related to a fall in "on view" reports of crime...

Zafar, a 32-year-old US citizen, put on a wig and glasses before he stalked, and eventually shot, the vice consul at the US Consulate in Guadalajara. The consul, Christopher Ashcraft, survived the attack, which happened outside the parking lot of a gym last January.

    ---snip--- Government has three primary functions. It should [1] provide for military defense of the nation. It should [2] enforce contract between individuals. It [3] should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government, in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the costs come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” —Milton Friedman I found this on numerous blogs. There is an amazing amount of truth behind this heartfelt meme.

    Back in May, we looked at a story out of Stockton, California, where their new, young mayor, Michael Tubbs had some unusual plans in mind. Stockton is frequently plagued with violent crime and deals with endemic poverty issues. Tubbs wanted to find a unique way to help some people out. A few of his ideas were clearly well intended and forward thinking. For example, he was partnering with private sector benefactors to try to offer college scholarships for qualifying students without further burdening the municipal budget.Some of his other ideas were a bit more, um… out there. And he’s...

    A new study on racial disparities in police conduct found that differences in offending by suspects, not racism, explains officers’ responses. In the study “Is There Evidence of Racial Disparity in Police Use of Deadly Force?” professors from Michigan State and Arizona State universities analyzed officer-involved fatal shootings in 2015 and 2016. The report’s abstract says: “We benchmark two years of fatal shooting data on 2016 crime rate estimates. When adjusting for crime, we find no systematic evidence of anti-black disparities in fatal shootings, fatal shootings of unarmed citizens, or fatal shootings involving misidentification of harmless objects… Exposure to police...

    Coasting to victory on promises to reign in rampant corruption, Mexican president-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador has sent shock waves through the Americas. Few realize that his election is likely to increase the number of low-income, low-skill illegal aliens coming to the United States. Obrador admires Cuba and former Chilean socialist leader Salvador Allende. Venezuela’s socialist dictator Hugo Chávez helped with previous presidential campaigns by providing advisors and Venezuelan ambassador reportedly attended meetings with Obrador supporters. While Mexican presidential candidates have long supported illegal aliens coming to the United States, Obrador’s rhetoric has been different. Instead of campaigning on the...

Martin Astrof, 75, charged at Donato Panico at Rep. Lee Zeldin’s Nesconset campaign office around 11:15 a.m., harassed him and verbally attacked Zeldin and Trump fans, Suffolk County cops said. When the agitated Astrof drove off, he almost hit Panico, police said. He was arrested outside his home several blocks away a short time later. Astrof was charged with making a terroristic threat and reckless endangerment, authorities said, and is expected to...

    The NYPD used a $3 million counterterrorism plane to shuttle Mayor Bill de Blasio back and forth from his Canada vacation to the Big Apple for an event Thursday, The Post has learned. Hizzoner, who is in Quebec on a weeklong respite, briefly flew back to the Bronx for a memorial for slain Detective Miosotis Familia. “NYPD is transporting him in their plane,” de Blasio spokesman Eric Phillips told The Post. “Their plane” is a Cessna 208 Caravan that cost roughly $3 million and was picked up by the department in 2017, sources said. The high-tech aircraft is outfitted with...
