Just a suggestion, but you should always remove your ID badge before installing a covert video camera in your area school’s girls’ restroom

0

An affidavit filed in federal court April 14, 2014, offered new details into why investigators think Isabel is responsible for placing those cameras, and possibly others, in restrooms at the school.

untitled, 29, was charged after recording devices were found “covertly placed” in two stalls at Hayes Elementary School on Concord Street Wednesday, April 2, 2014.  Isabel was in charge of the Stepping Stones after-school program at Hayes Elementary.

The affidavit said a custodian found a small gray junction box hanging on a wall opposite a toilet in a girls’ restroom at the school on April 2.  The custodian looked closer, discovered a camera in the box and took the device to the principal’s office.  That’s when police were called.

Investigators said the custodian said she had seen a small black device about a week earlier on the wall in a staff restroom in the school library.  She thought the device was part of the automatic flushing toilet, and other employees had also seen the device.  Although the device was gone a few hours later, no one reported seeing it to the principal or other authorities.

When police determined Isabel had been working when the devices were found, he was brought into the principal’s office to meet with investigators.

When asked if he ever went into the girls’ restroom, Isabel told investigators he goes in there occasionally if he, or a student, needs a tissue, the affidavit said.

“(Isabel) handled the gray device and then made the comment that his fingerprints will now be on the box,” the affidavit said.  Isabel also told police he thought he had seen the junction box before, in a stall in the girls’ bathroom.  When police checked the girls’ restroom, they found recording devices behind toilets in two of the stalls.  The custodian confirmed those devices were just like the one she had seen in the staff restroom.

Cameras were found in the junction box and in the two devices found behind the toilets.

Meanwhile, Isabel left school “ostensibly because he was ill,” the affidavit said.

Police later found the cameras contained close-up images of children from the waist down as they used the toilet.

The cameras were, apparently, operating when they were put into place.  They not only captured images of the victims, but the affidavit says images of the man who placed the cameras were also recorded.

“Although the male’s face is not visible, his identification card can be seen hanging from a lanyard on his neck,” the affidavit said about one of the cameras.  Another camera captured video of a man installing the camera, and the school principal identified that man as Isabel from a still image police captured from the video.

Embarrassing: Trying to rob a hair salon. Really Embarrassing: Have the receptionist laugh in your face. Ultimate embarrassment: Having to call your mom to come pick you up

ReceptionistOn the afternoon of April 10, 2014, 29-year-old Ryan Trembly entered Bubbles Hair Salon on a mission. It wasn’t give him a style that would turn heads and attract a new mate, though. Ryan was actually planning to rob the place.

He walked up to the receptionist, put his hand under his under shirt, and demanded that she give him the money in the register. Unfortunately for him, the young lady fooled behind the counter was not fooled by his finger gun. Instead, she simply laughed in his face,

The receptionist also pointed out to reporters (and hopefully not to him) how stupid it was to rob a hair salon since a bank was right next door…although to Ryan’s credit, he may have been correctly setting the bar low with regards to his criminal abilities.

After having completely failed at the robbery (and being completely emasculated), Ryan decided that now was the best time to spit some game, attempting to make small talk with the receptionist before leaving the salon.

Angelina Jolie ‘Lookalike’ Forces Cabbie Into Sex, Then Stabs Him Six Times

0

A sex-crazed Angelina Jolie wannabe forced a cabbie to have sex with her twice, then stabbed him six times because he wouldn’t perform again.

o-ANGELINA-JOLIE-LOOKALIKE-570Luminita Perijoc, 31, told a Romanian court she was on strong medication when she dragged her victim, Nicolae Stan, into her apartment at knifepoint. Stan, 31, was delivering wine to Perijoc’s home in Tulcea, eastern Romania, before the attack in 2012.

She threatened him with a 4-inch blade as she undressed him, then demanded intercourse and oral sex, according to The Mirror. But when Stan wouldn’t continue, she stabbed him six times. He managed to escape to her bathroom, where he called police.

Perijo claimed she was the victim, the New York Daily News reports. She was arrested and given a five-year jail sentence. It was reduced to four years when she claimed to be on medication at the time of the attack.

Stan told the court that he would have tried to overpower his attacker, but worried that people would think he raped her, The Mirror reports. He tried to escape without hurting her.

“I think she wasn’t used to anyone saying no because she flew into a rage when I declined,” he said. “When I refused she attacked me with a knife, and forced me to have sex with her but she still stabbed me.”

The married father of three says he’s been handed a “life sentence” of teasing from people for turning down an Angelina Jolie lookalike in the first place, according to the Sunday World.

“They don’t understand why I refused her, but they do not know what it is like to have a mad woman yelling at you at knifepoint,” he said. “They look at her, then look at me and laugh. But I think anyone would find it impossible to perform with a knife at their throat even if they were with Miss Romania.”

Man yells ‘Heil Hitler’ after fatally shooting 3 at Jewish centers

0

25235053_BG5A white supremacist yelled, “Heil Hitler,” after he was taken into custody in connection with the Passover Eve fatal shooting of three at two Jewish-related sites in the Kansas City area.

A 14-year-old boy and his grandfather were killed outside the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City. They were apparently inside a car. A female was killed a few minutes later in the parking lot at Village Shalom, an assisted living facility.

The suspect shot at two other people, but the bullets did not hit them, said Overland Park police Chief John Douglass.

A dozen or more shots may have been fired based on evidence at the scenes.

The victims apparently did not know their killer, Douglass said.

Glenn Frazier Cross, 73, was arrested at 1:28 p.m. He is being held by Overland Park police on multiple charges including premeditated first-degree murder, according to online jail records.

Cross, who also goes by Glenn Miller, is a known white supremacist and known for his anti-Semitic thoughts. He is a former grand dragon of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. He is a perennial candidate for office, including running in 2006 against then-U.S. Rep. Roy Blunt, R-MO. He ran against Blunt in 2010 when Blunt was elected to the Senate.

Cross made headlines in the 2010 campaign for his racist and anti-Semitic campaign ads. Federal law required broadcast stations to air the ads even though they did not want to put such vile rantings on their airwaves.

Miller quit high school as a senior to join the U.S. Army. In 1979, he retired from the Army as a master sergeant after 20 years of active duty, including two tours in Vietnam and 13 years as a member of the elite Green Berets.

Douglass said the suspect wasn’t known to Overland Park authorities before Sunday.

The suspect’s vehicle had Missouri plates.

Douglass also wouldn’t say whether the shootings were anti-Semitic hate crimes. He said authorities are evaluating comments that the suspect made after he was arrested.

It is a joint federal-state investigation with the offices of U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom and Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe involved.

The 14-year-old boy, Reat Underwood, was a freshman at Blue Valley High School. His grandfather, Dr. William Lewis Corporon, had moved to the Kansas City area a decade ago to be closer to his grandchildren.

The two attended the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Leawood. Prayers were held during the church’s evening Palm Sunday service.

The woman who lost her son and her father in a matter of moments was stoic as she thanked everyone for their support. Others sobbed as she described seeing the two prone bloody bodies and knowing immediately that her beloved father and her son were now in heaven together.

The Rev. Adam Hamilton said he met with the family Sunday and at their urging they went ahead with the Palm Sunday evening church services. He will again minister to the family on Sunday during their grief.

Reat was rushed to Overland Park Regional Medical Center for surgery but died from his injuries.

Corporon, who was a family doctor, leaves behind a wife of 49 years. Reat was an Eagle Scout who loved camping and hunting with his grandfather, father and brother, the family said.

Cross was arrested at the Valley Park Elementary School, which is a mile away from Village Shalom. The suspect appeared to yell “Heil Hitler” as he was being led away in handcuffs by Overland Park police.

The suspect made “several statements” when he was put into the back of a police patrol car, Douglass acknowledged.

“We are sifting through and vetting those for accuracy, No. 1, and No. 2, we’re looking at them for their evidentiary value,” the police chief said. “It is too early to tell you what he may or may not have said. We’re trying to determine that at this time.”

Douglass said Sunday evening that it is being investigated as a hate crime but said it’s too soon to know whether it’s a hate crime or not.

“We know it was a vicious act of violence, and we know obviously it was at two Jewish facilities,” he said. “So one might make that assumption, but we’re going to have to know more about it before we’ll label it.”

The suspect used a shotgun in the fatal shootings, Douglass said. The suspect may have also used a handgun in firing the shots that didn’t strike the two. In addition, Douglass said the suspect may have had an assault rifle.

Douglass said the first 911 call about the JCC shooting came at 1:03 p.m. This happened outside the Lewis and Shirley White Theatre, which was packed for performance-related events.

Teens were auditioning for KC SuperStar and parents were frantically trying to get to their children.

In addition, a performance of To Kill a Mockingbird was underway when the shots rang out at the theater. The back door to the theater suffered damage that may have been from gunshots.

Jenessa Watkins, a dance instructor, said she was with a group of children when they were rushed to the theater. She said when she learned about the shootings that she tried to stay composed, but she couldn’t help but think of the 2012 massacre at a Connecticut elementary school.

“I kind of couldn’t help but think about Sandy Hook, looking around at these young children,” she said. “I was really scared. … People were calling their loved ones, and I thought I was fine and under control, but when I called my mom and she started crying, I started crying.”

A second shooting was reported a few minutes later at Village Shalom, which is an assisted living center at 5500 W. 123rd St.

Brian Brookbank was running errands when he saw chest compressions being performed on the injured person.

“We saw a large quantity of blood flowing down the slope of the parking lot,” Brookbank said. “We then went around the corner and saw a white male … being handcuffed with multiple assault rifles and a couple of handguns pointed at him. He was laying in the grass and did not appear to be resisting.”

Worried relatives of residents told KCTV5 that Village Shalom was placed on lockdown.

Phyllis Cantor, who is undergoing rehabilitation at Village Shalom, said she heard the sound of sirens. She said many police officers are at the scene and their focus appeared to be on a white car in the parking lot.

Sophia Porter was at the Jewish Community Center for the SuperStar auditions. She said contestants helped lighten the mood by performing as they were forced to stay holed up inside a safe area.

“The sense of community in that room,” Porter said. “I felt very comforted by the presence of the other people and by the performances that were going on.”

The Jewish Community Center will be closed on Monday. The JCCC said that “our hearts go out to all those affected and touched” by the tragedy.

“Our hearts go out to the families who have suffered loss on this tragic day. Our heartfelt gratitude as well to all those in Kansas City and around the world who have expressed sympathy, concern and support,” the JCC said in its statement. “Everyone participating in JCC programming has been released to their homes.”

In a statement, Blue Valley School District’s Tom Trigg said Reat sang the national anthem earlier this year at an educational breakfast.

“His talents were on full display that morning. I found Reat to be an engaging and exceptional young man,” he said. “Our hearts go out to the families who are dealing with this senseless tragedy.”

Trigg said other Blue Valley students were at the Jewish Community Center. Classes were already scheduled to be off Monday, but counselors will be at the school to speak with grieving students.

“As a community, we will come together to support each other. We encourage you to be especially sensitive and offer supports to your child during this time,” Trigg said. “We are a strong community and will do everything possible to support each other and our students. Our thoughts and prayers are with all families who have been impacted by this tragedy.”

Temple Israel and St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church held a vigil at 8 p.m. Sunday. About 200 people came together in their grief and devastation. Christian pastors and Jewish rabbis stood shoulder to shoulder in offering words of comfort.

Child Bride, Wasilu Umar, Poisons Groom And His Friends

A 14-year-old girl is in police custody after poisoning her 35-year-old husband.

Last week, in an arranged marriage, Wasilu Umar was forced to marry Umaru Sani by her father.  To celebrate their marriage, Umaru invited a dozen of his friends over. That is when Wasilu decided to slip rat poison into a rice dish.
Umaru died the same day along with friends Nasiru Mohammed and Alhassan Alhassan. Another female victim, Indo Ibrahim, died at the hospital while receiving treatment.

Wasilu is cooperating with the police, and will likely be charged for culpable homicide. She admitted that she purchased the poison from a local market with the intent of killing her husband.

‘The suspect confessed to committing the crime and said she did it because she was forced to marry a man she did not love,” said assistant superintendent Musa Magaji Majia.

Child marriage is still very common throughout Nigeria, especially in the North, where there is a large, poor, Muslim population. This is especially true in times of drought, numbers increase in times of drought because a bride price is paid and it means one less mouth to feed.

According to the U.N. children’s agency, Fifty percent of Nigerian girls living in rural areas are married before they turn 18, according to the U.N. children’s agency. Child brides suffer difficult pregnancies and can often die in childbirth, the leading cause of death worldwide for girls aged 15 to 19.

They are also much more likely to contract AIDS and be subjected to domestic violence, according to the International Center for Research on Women.

The Nigerian government is attempting to curtail child marriages. According to the BBC, Islamic police are trying to stop parents from forcing children into marriages against their will and the father could be charged as well.

Chinese man Bai Ting has been arrested after allegedly biting a police officer in Singapore.

jail-cell2The 28-year-old also faces charges of being drunk and incapable of taking care of himself in a public place.

The Chinese national was found drunk at Lorong 27A Geyland at about 7pm on Sunday, before being taken to a lock-up at Bedok Police Division Headquarters where he reportedly bit Sergeant Ng Wen Chi’s right forearm.

Bai faces a fine of up to S$1,000 and a month of jail time for the alcohol offences, while hurting a police officer could see him sent down for seven years, caned and fined.

The news will surely sound alarm bells at US news station KTVU, which famously got stung by a ‘foreign names sound out English words’ prank last year.

A cruel viewer gave a tip-off that a plane that crashed in San Francisco was piloted by the crack team of ‘Sum Ting Wong’, ‘Wi Tu Lo’, ‘Ho Lee Fuk’ and ‘Bang Ding Ow’, which anchors read out on-air.

The thefts happened a short time after 2 p.m. Tuesday after 25-year-old Dominika Johnson of Oakland and Kendra Hill, 28, of Antioch entered the Home Goods store at 590 Moraga Road, according to police.

Police said the pair took items from the store and during the same trip claimed the items as returns to receive store gift cards.

Employees recognized Johnson as having returned stolen items from the store three times over the past two weeks, according to police.

Officers were called to the store and Johnson was arrested on suspicion of burglary, conspiracy, receiving stolen property, probation violation and outstanding arrest warrants for grand theft and traffic violations.

Hill was also arrested on suspicion of burglary and conspiracy, as well as child endangerment after officers found that she had left children in a car outside the store during the alleged burglary.

The children were turned over to a relative.

Man misses court date, huffs paint thinner, punches a pit bull, and things just went downhill from there

0

Court records show felonious assault charges have been filed against a Tremont man accused of huffing paint thinner and punching a pit bull before inciting a standoff with SWAT.

14672083-smallTimothy Blevins was arrested about 4 a.m. Monday after an hours-long showdown at his home on the 2600 block of West 11th Street, police said.

Witnesses said Blevins, 52, hurled a knife at one person, chased another with a nail-spiked plank and punched a pit bull in the face before an expletive-laden confrontation with police, officials said.

Blevins — wielding a large kitchen knife — threatened to shoot police while shouting from a window he shattered, according to officer accounts.

Witnesses said Blevins spent the day sniffing chemicals to get high.

Court records show Blevins was charged in 2009 for possession and use of toluene, a chemical sometimes used as an industrial solvent.

After missing a court date, a warrant was issued for Blevins’ arrest. The warrant was active as of his arrest on Monday, according to Cleveland Municipal Court documents.

Blevins’ rap sheet includes a disorderly conduct conviction and a guilty plea on a drug possession charge. In January, he was charged with felonious assault and domestic violence.

MOBILE METH LAB – Woman Caught Cooking Meth While Driving Down I-64

0

Christie-Ann-Smith-600X300-558x279A Maryland woman is facing a number of charges including driving under the influence of drugs, two counts possession of a controlled substance and manufacturing methamphetamine after state police troopers found her cooking meth while driving.

The incident took place while Christie Ann Smith was driving down I-64 in Virginia and caught the eyes of the law enforcers due to her erratic driving. After stopping her to investigate the cause, the cops found a mobile meth lab in the vehicle.

“It’s considered a one-person lab” said Virginia State Police Sgt. Keven Barrick, while talking to WVEC. He also said one of the officers reported “Smith was cooking meth as she was driving down the road.”

The 39-year-old was arrested and in addition to the charges listed above, she was also charged with driving while suspended, having no valid operator’s license and using false identity.

As unusual as this story is, Smith’s mobile meth lab is not unique to this case. According to UPI, 38 of these types of labs were discovered in the state of Virginia last year, up from 28 the year before.

Virginia State Police Lt. Jason Robinson explained to WAVY, “As meth labs increase, so do mobile meth labs.”

He also listed some of the related hazards.

“You have the danger of explosives, and some of the gases associated with meth labs are dangerous. They’re not safe for you to inhale. There’s ammonia gas, hydroch acid gas and you also have the fire danger” he said, adding, “I know there’s been incidents […] where people driving in cars have the meth lab explode in the car.”

And in addition to all those possibilities, there’s also the very real potential of ending up in jail.
