    With mail theft and postal carrier robberies up, law enforcement officials have made more than 600 arrests since May in a crackdown launched to address crime that includes carriers being accosted at gunpoint for their antiquated universal keys, the Postal Service announced Wednesday. Criminals are both stealing mail and targeting carriers' so-called “arrow keys” to get access to mailboxes. “We will continue to turn up the pressure and put potential perpetrators on notice: If you’re attacking postal employees, if you steal the mail or commit other postal crimes, postal inspectors will bring you to justice,” Chief Postal Inspector Gary Barksdale...

    American citizens could soon be arrested by non-U.S. citizens in Illinois after Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed a law that will allow illegal immigrants to become police officers in the state. After the signing of Illinois House Bill 3751 by the governor on Friday, U.S. citizenship will no longer be a requirement to serve as a police officer in the state of Illinois starting January 1, 2024.

    California police made at least nine arrests last week in connection with a spate of brazen daylight “flash mob” burglaries that has left retailers reeling and shoppers shaken. Six alleged thieves were arrested in connection with a robbery at an East Lost Angeles Nike store after police pulled over an SUV last week and found thousands of dollars worth of stolen sneakers, the Los Angeles Times reported. The arrests came Wednesday after three people were caught on camera entering the store and walking out with whatever they could carry on Aug. 13. Several of the suspects was seen loading their...

    Russia has for years been a notoriously unfriendly place for anyone who does not comply with the Kremlin’s hardline views on “family values”.Russia’s security service said Thursday it had arrested a transgender rights activist accused of “high treason” for supporting Ukraine, as lawmakers backed a bill banning gender transitions.Authorities “stopped the illegal activities of a Russian citizen, resident of the Oryol region, involved in high treason for providing financial aid to the armed forces of Ukraine”, the FSB security service said in a statement.In a video of the arrest made by the FSB and shared by Russian state media, the...

    Last month San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced the city would begin to crack down on the open-air drug markets that plague downtown. As I pointed out here, Breed’s planned announcement of the new approach was turned into a circus thanks to Democratic Socialist City Supervisor Dean Preston. Before the meeting was cut off by protesters shouting (and one throwing a brick) Breed said it was time for a change.“We have tried over and over again,” Breed said at U.N. Plaza. “And what we are doing is not working. And in fact, our local resources have increased. But it has...
  • After Killing Trump Program to Crack Down on Crime, Biden DOJ Celebrates Fewest Arrests in 20 Years

    The Department of Justice under President Joe Biden released new data on Thursday, and it wasn't good. Yet the DOJ is seemingly bragging that the "number of federal arrests reached the lowest point in two decades" in Fiscal Year 2021 as if that's an achievement to be proud of. The numbers come via the Federal Justice Statistics report, showing that "arrests by federal law enforcement agencies declined 35% from fiscal year (FY) 2020 to FY 2021, reaching the lowest level over the past two decades." *IMAGE* The report cited COVID-triggered pandemic restrictions as a reason why "federal arrests declined 81%...

    Five members of Antifa are in custody on domestic terrorism charges after they were protesting outside of a planned $90 million police training center. The site of the planned center has been the focal point of protests for months by Antifa who have referred to the site - which protesters have made an autonomous zone - as Cop City. Many of those who were arrested were holed up in treehouses where police later recovered explosives. Prior to Tuesday's arrests, police detained several people at the site for crimes including destruction of property and arson along with car-jacking and attacks on...

    A Florida Keys couple was arrested this weekend after allegedly attacking and beating a snorkeler following a dispute over how close he was to their home. Paulo De Oliveira, 65, and his wife Katia, 61, were arrested Sunday and charged with both aggravated battery and simple battery. The Monroe County Sheriff's Office said deputies were called to the couple's Marathon home around 1:30 p.m. regarding the incident. The victim, a 36-year-old man from St. Petersburg, told deputies he was snorkeling close to the dock of the couple home when an argument began. He said the couple beat him with a...

    Among many claimed benefits, cryptocurrencies supposedly offer two significant benefits over fiat currencies: 1) autonomy and 2) discretion. This past week, the U.S. federal government took them both down. The U.S. Department of Justice issued a press statement that it had seized $2.3 million in cryptocurrency. The seizure was the result of the FBI's Colonial Pipeline investigation. As a reminder, Colonial Pipeline, the U.S.'s largest pipeline for refined oil products, was the victim of a cyberattack. Against the U.S.'s wishes and policies, Colonial Pipeline paid millions in ransom to retake control of the pipeline. According to the FBI, they had...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. border authorities arrested 210,000 migrants attempting to cross the border with Mexico in March, the highest monthly total in two decades and underscoring challenges in the coming months for U.S. President Joe Biden. The March total is a 24% increase from the same month a year earlier, when 169,000 migrants were picked up at the border, the start of a rise in migration that left thousands unaccompanied children stuck in crowded border patrol stations for days while they awaited placement in overwhelmed government-run shelters. Biden, a Democrat who took office in January 2021, pledged to reverse...

    Two Alabama men are accused of inciting or encouraging a riot after authorities said messages were spread online encouraging the spring break “takeover” of a Florida beach town, authorities said. More than 160 people were arrested, about 75 illegal guns were confiscated and several businesses closed during a wild weekend late last month in Panama City Beach, police said. Social media influencers and others promoted “Panamaniac” on Facebook and other social media platforms, authorities said. Demarion Ty’Quan Cooper, 20 and Rashad Boyce Glasper, 25, were arrested Thursday at their homes in the Alabama cities of Troy and Wetumpka, police said.

    Over 6,500 Russian citizens have been arrested over the past week after protesting against Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Demonstrations have expanded in recent days to 100 cities across Russia, with tens of thousands of protesters carrying signs and reading slogans against the war, while others laid wreaths near the Ukrainian embassy in Moscow. The Kremlin disapproved of the protests and had many of the demonstrators arrested. Videos released in recent days show mothers trying to explain to their frightened little children who have been arrested why they are behind bars. Most of the children were arrested when they went with...

    Another scandal for the "scandal-free" Obama administration. Not all ICE targets work construction or smuggle drugs. Some are key figures in the Dem machine. But the era of Obama corruption is over. There's a new sheriff in town. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) this week arrested two millionaire fugitives from Ecuador whose family donated heavily to American political campaigns. Roberto and William Isaías, 74 and 75, were detained Wednesday in Miami and taken to a detention facility for undocumented immigrants awaiting deportation, The New York Times reported Friday. ICE told the Times that the brothers were “unlawfully present” in...

    After invoking the “Emergencies Act” in Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave not only the government extreme power of citizens, but now law enforcement are able to use excessive force when disbanding the protests. Recently, officers, fashioned in riot gear and wearing masks, pushed through the front lines of the protests, arresting fellow Canadians. But while there is no denying the violence being shown against the peaceful protesters making up the Freedom Convoy, the threat of being charged, imprisoned, and financially ruined might be nothing more than a scare tactic by the Canadian government. In the video, which is featured...

    President Joe Biden’s top Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials are set to issue a new memo that is likely to further cripple Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents’ ability to arrest illegal aliens. A class-action lawsuit, initially brought by a number of open borders groups, demanded recourse for illegal aliens who were arrested by ICE agents as part of “collateral arrests” in traffic stops and often without a judicial warrant.
