  • Only in California: Kate Steinle’s illegal alien murderer wants his gun possession charge overturned

    The illegal alien let off the hook for the murder of San Francisco resident Kate Steinle in 2015 now wants additional leniency: He wants his gun possession charge overturned because, well, it’s just not fair. You may recall there was no small amount of outrage when jurors in the case of Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, who stood accused of shooting and killing Steinle, failed to convict him even of manslaughter charges but, because they are such gun haters in California, decided instead to convict him of illegally possessing a firearm. The CBS station in San Francisco called the verdict “shocking.”...

    The suspect accused of killing James and Denise Closs and kidnapping their 13-year-old daughter, Jayme, first spotted her when he was on his way to work, as she was getting into a school bus, according to a criminal complaint released Monday by the Barron County District Attorney. "The defendant states, when he saw (Jayme) he knew that was the girl he was going to take," the complaint states. The startling criminal complaint comes on the same day that Jake Patterson, 21, will make his first court appearance in Barron County to face charges of intentional homicide, kidnapping and armed burglary.

    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Liz G. Rodríguez Quiñonez grew up schooled in being able to throw her body to the floor in the middle of the night, in the event that stray bullets from a nearby shootout came crashing through her window. But it was only this past fall when Ms. Rodríguez, who operates a food truck in a town just east of the Puerto Rican capital, experienced her first murder: Standing by the stove in her truck one morning in September, she heard a series of pops, then screaming, and realized that the man who was the intended...

    I don't know how many of you are familiar with the case of Leopold and Loeb. It was in the 20s, near Chicago. Movie made of it was Compulsion and it was quite mesmerizing. The gist of it from Wikipedia is: "Nathan Freudenthal Leopold Jr. (November 19, 1904 – August 29, 1971)[1] and Richard Albert Loeb usually referred to collectively as Leopold and Loeb, were two wealthy students at the University of Chicago who in May 1924 kidnapped and murdered 14-year-old Bobby Franks in Chicago. They committed the murder—characterized at the time as "the crime of the century"as a demonstration...

    GORDON, Wisconsin – The man accused of kidnapping Jayme Closs and killing her parents in October had "absolutely" no contact with the family before the brutal slayings, her aunt told Fox News, as the first glimpse of the home where the teenager was allegedly held for months was revealed on Sunday. Authorities in northern Wisconsin removed the barricade blocking the house in rural Gordon on Sunday morning, where authorities say brave 13-year-old Jayme Closs escaped captivity last Thursday. Investigators had closed off the entire neighborhood for days as they carefully gathered evidence inside the home of Jayme’s suspected captor, 21-year-old...

    The commanding officer of the Navy base at Guantanamo Bay was relieved of duty Wednesday due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command, the Navy said.

Nettleton has been temporarily reassigned to the staff of Commander, Navy Region Southeast in Jacksonville, and replaced on an acting basis by Capt.

    A moving, highly emotional video produced by the Republican Party and posted online at YouTube is something that every American watching POTUS Donald Trump’s Oval Office address Tuesday evening discussing the “humanitarian crisis” along the U.S.-Mexico border should have seen immediately afterward. Or, at least, immediately after the Democratic response by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. They called what is happening with illegal immigration and along the southwest border a “manufactured crisis.” See what you think.

    The U.S. Supreme Court announced Monday it will not get involved in the state of Connecticut’s fight to reinstate Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel’s conviction for the 1975 murder of 15-year-old Martha Moxley in Greenwich. The Connecticut Supreme Court vacated Skakel’s 2002 conviction and 20-to-life sentence last May and ordered he be entitled to a new trial on charges he beat Moxley to death with a golf club. The court found Skakel was deprived of his right to effective assistance of counsel because his attorneys did not investigate a potential alibi witness who could have helped his defense. Skakel, 58, is...

    In June 2013, Roderick Covlin, 45, posed as his daughter, then-12-year-old Anna, and wrote a note as a false confession in the 2009 death of her mother, Shele Danishefsky, the New York Post reported. “All of these years I have been so incredibly afraid and guilty about the night my mom died,” Covlin allegedly wrote. “I lied. She didn’t just slip. That day we got into a fight about her dating … I got mad so I pushed her, but it couldn’t have been that hard! I didn’t mean to hurt her! I swear!," the note continued. "But she fell and i...

    A man’s body was found early Monday in the West Hollywood home of prominent Democratic donor Ed Buck, authorities said. Deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s West Hollywood station responded to the Laurel Avenue apartment complex at 1:05 a.m. in response to a report of a person not breathing, the department said in a statement. At some point, the 911 caller performed CPR, the department said. Paramedics pronounced a man dead at the scene. The cause of death was not yet known. The dead man’s name has not been released, but Nicole Nishida, a spokeswoman for the Sheriff’s...

    The tragic case of Jazmine Barnes has relit the fires of racial animosity thanks to the media and the investigating law enforcement on the case. Jazmine’s mother and other witnesses identified a white man as the culprit and the sheriff’s department immediately released the details and sketches. Professional outrage activist Shaun King wasted no time in crying racism and stirring up animosity under the guise of fighting race-based crime. Days later it was discovered that Jazmine’s killer wasn’t white but a black man - perhaps two. In the chaos of the incident people had identified a man they saw speeding...

    A California parole panel on Thursday recommended for the first time that Charles Manson follower Robert Beausoleil be freed after serving nearly a half-century in prison for murder. Beausoleil, 71, was not involved in the most notorious killings of actress Sharon Tate and six others by the Manson “family” in 1969. He was convicted in the slaying of musician Gary Hinman that same year. Hinman was tortured for three days, according to testimony at previous parole hearings, including when Manson cut his face with a sword. Parole panels ruled against releasing Beausoleil 18 prior times. California’s incoming governor, Gavin Newsom,...

    In 2018, the Deseret News tracked 78 homicides that occurred in Utah, including 18 at the hands of police officers, more than three times the number from the year before. As is the case for most years, domestic violence was again a leading cause of homicide in the state. The victims of homicide — the killing of one human being at the hands of another — in Utah in 2018 ranged in age from just 4 months to 89 years. Two-thirds of them were shot to death.

  • Officer Ronil Singh Is The Immigrant We Want. His Alleged Murderer Is Not.

    Immigrants are a part of American culture. However, when an immigrant is illegal and murders a police officer conducting a traffic stop, we do not want them here. Officer Ronil Singh was an immigrant who migrated to America legally. Now, he is dead allegedly at the hands of an illegal alien. There is no room for this type of behavior in our society. Officer Singh legally emigrated from Fiji to America approximately 20 years ago. According to Newman Police Department Chief Randy Richardson, Singh had a lifelong dream to be a police officer in the United States. Singh was a...

    A suspected drunken driver accused of killing a California police officer who pulled him over was captured Friday as he tried to flee back to Mexico, where he lived before illegally crossing into the U.S., authorities said. The sheriff leading the investigation blamed California's sanctuary law for preventing local authorities from reporting Gustavo Perez Arriaga to U.S. immigration officials for two previous drunken driving arrests. If he had been deported, the sheriff said, Cpl. Ronil Singh of the tiny Newman Police Department would still be alive. "We can't ignore the fact that this could have been preventable," Stanislaus County Sheriff...

    The newly-elected Robeson County Sheriff is revealing new details about a missed warning that could have kept an accused murderer behind bars. In an exclusive interview with the ABC11 I-Team, Sheriff Burnis Wilkins confirms at least two members of the sheriff's office knew about DNA evidence linking Michael McClellan to an old rape case more than a year before McClellan allegedly kidnapped and murdered Hania Aguilar. District Attorney Johnson Britt told ABC11 at the time that McLellan's DNA from that case was used in the investigation of Hania's case. Britt, however, would later reveal that the Robeson County Sheriff's Office...
