    NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - The U.S. Attorney of Middle Tennessee called it a “bloodbath” of a plan. The Sheriff of Davidson County simply called it evil. The latest development in the case against 50-year-old Alex Friedmann includes details of what federal prosecutors said was a well-orchestrated plan to help inmates escape the Davidson County Jail. The plan included weapons and handcuff keys hidden behind concrete walls and a 37-mm launcher to fire flares and gas stashed among an arsenal of weapons, according to the complaint. Friedmann also faces state charges of attempted burglary and vandalism after being accused of dressing...

    A new study reveals that almost a third of county jail inmates have been set free from the facilities during the coronavirus pandemic. The Prison Policy Initiative study has determined that 32% of inmates at county jails have been set free. “In the last two months, local governments across the U.S. have drastically reduced their jail populations to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The typical jail has reduced its population by more than 30%.”

    Officials are delineating the parameters of relaxing stay-at-home orders that have throttled the global economy, yet a few companies are already giving the public a glimpse of life once stringent coronavirus restrictions begin winding down. Currently, states and cities are crafting a pell-mell retreat away from lockdowns designed to contain the COVID-19 crisis but that have decimated growth and the jobs market. Yet, it's widely acknowledged that social distancing protocols that enforce small crowds — and require the use of face masks in public — will remain in effect. Already, a range of big and small businesses around the country...
  • What if Adam Schiff leaked the Flynn Phone Call?

    This occurred to me when a guy called in to Lars Radio Show about a person on Schiff's staff had access to this file on Flynn (former Intel gal). He was thinking that she (the person on his staff) leaked it, but I thought about how cozy Schiff is with the press and know if she told him about it he would leak it without thinking of the consequences. I don't think there is immunity if this is the case, would explain his bald face lies and facial mask of desperation all the time.
  • Dallas hair salon owner, in act of civil disobedience, chooses to go to jail rather than close her doors

    The judge told Shelley Luther she didn’t have to go to jail. The owner of Salon Ŕ la Mode in Dallas had been operating her business despite a temporary restraining order last week from Dallas County State District Judge Eric Moyé. She kept operating despite a county official’s cease-and-desist letter ordering her to close — a letter she ripped up before a crowd of protesters in a theatrical display of defiance during an Open Texas rally in Frisco, Tex., on April 25. “Come and get it, Judge Clay Jenkins,” she said, referencing the top county official as she threw shreds...

    Tuesday’s jailing of a hair salon owner in Texas for defying a coronavirus shutdown order just doesn’t cut it, U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw wrote Tuesday. In fact, the punishment dished out to Dallas business owner Shelley Luther was another example of public officials overstepping their authority during the crisis, the congressman wrote on Twitter.“These punishments are NOT just,” Crenshaw wrote. “They are not reasonable. Small-minded ‘leaders’ across the country have become drunk with power. This must end.”GOVERNMENT GONE TOO FAR? STATES REBUKED FOR CORONAVIRUS LCOKDOWN MEASURES

    Two days after the Rev. Shane Harris called on San Diego police to cite organizers of Saturday’s “freedom rally” downtown against COVID-19 orders, a San Diego woman has been notified she’s facing a $1,000 fine or jail time. Naomi Israel, 27, on Wednesday publicly confirmed she was an organizer — and the woman facing penalties for the downtown protest that drew hundreds. On Facebook, Israel posted that she would be arrested for exercising her constitutional rights. “I have attorneys ready and an entire team here to protect me but I need your help,” she said. “Centers for American Liberty is...

    In leftist cities around the country, including New York and Philadelphia, local officials have been releasing criminals from jails. They've used the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus as justification and promised their communities that only the "non-violent" offenders would be let out onto the streets. The reality and consequences of these decisions are hitting...hard. To any person with the ability to think logically, it was obvious from the beginning of this scheme that innocent people would be victimized. It's happening. But New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, a champion of disastrous "bail reform," still doesn't get it. When asked...

    WASHINGTON — Mayor Muriel Bowser is threatening residents of Washington, DC, with 90 days in jail and a $5,000 fine if they leave their homes during the coronavirus outbreak. The threat of jail is alarming residents and civil libertarians who point out that at least five inmates tested positive for COVID-19 in the city’s 1,700-inmate jail near Capitol Hill. “Our message remains the same: stay home,” Bowser, a Democrat, said in a statement Monday. The stay-home order has exceptions for grocery shopping and work deemed essential. Outdoor recreation such as running is allowed, but cannot involve people outside of a...

    **SNIP** Such is the case for Harvey Weinstein, one of the richest men in Hollywood who, although he was found guilty of rape in the 3rd degree and criminal sexual assault in the 1st degree, has yet to arrive at prison on Rikers Island where he was ordered by a judge, instead taking a respite at Bellevue Hospital. Weinstein was apparently admitted to Bellevue because of high blood pressure, which is funny because that’s what writing this story about Weinstein has given me. However, unlike Weinstein, I am not trying to evade prison and as such do not need to...

    Top New York City jail officials are concerned there could be another "Epstein incident" once convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein is behind bars on Rikers Island, according to multiple reports. TMZ reported New York City Department of Correction bosses' fears, citing high-ranking officials who are afraid of an event similar to the death of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who was found hanging from strips of orange bed sheets inside his jail cell in Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan.While it's up to the city's corrections department to decide where inmates are housed, Judge James Burke said he'd ask that Weinstein be...

    Michael Watford never got a chance to vote. After he was convicted of a non-violent felony in Wisconsin at 18, the now 28-year-old was barred from casting a ballot. But now that Watford is in Illinois — where he can vote, despite his criminal record — he decided it was the right time to exercise his right while awaiting trial in Cook County Jail on a separate case. “I registered to vote because I never had the right to vote before,” Watford said recently at the jail where 42 voting machines will be brought in during the first two weekends...

    Kentucky Republican Rep. Thomas Massie thinks some local law enforcement leaders will be willing to go to jail rather than comply with state gun control laws they deem unconstitutional. "Attended my first 2A sanctuary meeting today in Lewis County (where I live). Standing room only. Friends and neighbors spoke passionately and articulately. County officials unanimously passed a resolution," Massie tweeted on Dec. 30. "This grassroots movement feels even stronger than the Tea Party in 2010." Second Amendment sanctuary municipalities last year sprouted up in Illinois, a state with some of the strictest gun control laws. They then spread to Colorado,...

    If you’re a law enforcement official who has more allegiance to ideology than to the law or to the country, where does that get you? For former FBI analyst Mark Tolson, the answer is jail — however briefly. Tolson is best-known — if he’s known at all — as the man who broke into a pro-Trump operative’s email account in October 2018, took screen-shots of some of the messages, then sent images to a reporter and offered the reporter the password, according to Politico. The unnamed member of the media turned down the opportunity. Tolson, 60, said he did it...

    The New Jersey man who masterminded a plot to scam GoFundMe donors with a hoax story about his ex-girlfriend helping a homeless man pleaded guilty Friday and must now serve five years behind bars. Mark D’Amico pleaded guilty in Burlington County court to state charges of misapplication of entrusted property. As part of his plea deal, D’Amico agreed to a five-year jail sentence. His ultimate sentence could be higher; he is still facing additional, yet-resolved federal charges for the 2017 scam. His accomplices - ex-girlfriend Katelyn McClure and homeless vet Johnny Bobbitt - have each pleaded guilty to state and...
