Shabir Ahmed: the Rochdale Sex Gang Ringleader Who Blamed White Community for Not Looking After GirlsPosted: May 20, 2017 Filed under: Crime & Corruption, Global, Mediasphere | Tags: Adolescents, Afghan detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Alan Sugar, Alexis Jay, Allah, Arrest, DNA, murder, Sexual abuse, United Kingdom Leave a comment
Shabir Ahmed, the man at the heart of the conspiracy carried on a secret affair with the white teenager who acted as his recruiter.
For a year he lived in fear that people in his own community might find out about the relationship and ostracise him.
On every occasion the couple had sex he would “go home, say two units of prayer and ask Allah forgiveness for doing wrong”.
He told the jury that fellow Pakistanis would regard him as having “infested” their community by sleeping with a white girl. “It’s not just them who are racist. We are racist too”.
Ahmed, who could not be named during the original trial, cut a belligerent figure in the courtroom, hurling insults at the judge and prosecution barristers and claiming he was the victim of a police-led conspiracy.
He dismissed the allegations against him as “white lies” made up by girls who had built up a profitable business empire by working as prostitutes.
“They were clever girls,” he told the jury. “If they’d gone on Lord Sugar’s Apprentice programme they would have won.
“They knew more Pakistanis than I as a Pakistani know. They knew what they were doing. They were earning good money”.
But for all his bravado he was unable to refute one crucial piece of evidence about DNA found on the clothing of a girl he raped and later trafficked around the north-west.
The defendant came to Britain as a boy in 1967. He settled in Oldham and raised a family, but has been separated from his wife since 2000.
Former Kindergarten Teacher Heather Lee Robertson Accused of Student ThreesomePosted: April 25, 2017 Filed under: Crime & Corruption, Education, U.S. News | Tags: Arrest, Arrest warrant, Heather Lee Robertson, Houston Chronicle, Hudson Independent School District, Intimate relationship, Middle school, Sexual intercourse, Sexual Misconduct, Teacher, Texas, Trophy Club Leave a comment
Natalie Musumeci reports: A former kindergarten teacher in Texas is accused of having sex with four students –- two of whom she bedded at the same time, according to reports.
Heather Lee Robertson, 38, who taught for the Hudson Independent School District, was arrested Saturday on four counts of an improper relationship after cops opened an investigation into her sexual affairs with pupils, the Lufkin Daily News reported.
Robertson copped to the sex rendezvous and told police that she did not “require” the boys she slept with to use a condom because she was unable to have children, according to the news outlet.
Before police arrested Robertson, also a former high school teacher, they questioned students they believed were involved with her.
One student told police that his affair with Robertson began after spring break with the pair “chatting and sexting” on Snapchat, the newspaper reported.
Robertson allegedly asked the boy to come over to her apartment to have sex, and the boy asked if a friend could join, the boy told police. Read the rest of this entry »
Female Teacher Who Took Part in an Orgy with a Student Banned from the Classroom for LifePosted: April 22, 2017 Filed under: Crime & Corruption, Education, Mediasphere | Tags: Adolescents, Arrest, Arrest warrant, Byron Nelson, Byron Nelson High School, Caroline County Sheriff's Office, Child, Human trafficking, Sexual intercourse Leave a comment
A female teacher who took part in an orgy with a sixth form girl during a two year affair has been banned from the classroom.
Francoise Jenkins, 45, a mother who was in a heterosexual relationship with one of the men who took part in the sex sessions, later paid him £13,000 “silence money” after they split up.
She had befriended the “vulnerable pupil” at Danum Academy, Doncaster, where she was a supply teacher, seducing her after obtaining her mobile phone number from the school’s database.
Text messages included personal information about the “problems she was having with Individual C”, the man she was living with.
They first had three in a bed sex on the night of the school prom. Ms Jenkins met the girl, Pupil A, for a drink after the school disco and took her home where she admitted having sex both with her and Individual C.
Pupil A later told the school she engaged in sexual activity with both Ms Jenkins and Individual C.
She said in a statement that as it progressed Individual C became more involved but they did not have full sex as she was “worried about becoming pregnant”.
Another time Pupil A was invited to the house with a male friend, Individual A, and all four of them, including Ms
Jenkins and Individual C, had sex.
A professional conduct panel of the National College for Teaching and Leadership found Ms Jenkins guilty of unacceptable professional conduct and conduct that may bring the profession into disrepute.
Teacher panellist Dr Robert Cawley said: “Pupil A describes how she had sex with Individual A but cried and had asked for it to stop as she did not want to have sex with a man.”

Afterwards, Ms Jenkins attempted to cover up her relationship with Pupil A by paying Individual C about £13,000 – wholly or partly so he would not report it.
Former Obama Officials, Loyalists Waged Secret Campaign to Oust FlynnPosted: February 14, 2017 Filed under: Breaking News, Crime & Corruption, Foreign Policy, Politics, White House | Tags: Advertising, Arrest, Barack Obama, Ben Rhodes, Donald Trump, Free Beacon, Iran Deal, Michael Flynn, National Security Agency, Obama administration, President of the United States, Republican Party (United States) 1 Comment
Sources: Former Obama officials, loyalists planted series of stories to discredit Flynn, bolster Iran deal.
Adam Kredo reports: The abrupt resignation Monday evening of White House national security adviser Michael Flynn is the culmination of a secret, months-long campaign by former Obama administration confidantes to handicap President Donald Trump’s national security apparatus and preserve the nuclear deal with Iran, according to multiple sources in and out of the White House who described to the Washington Free Beacon a behind-the-scenes effort by these officials to plant a series of damaging stories about Flynn in the national media.
The effort, said to include former Obama administration adviser Ben Rhodes—the architect of a separate White House effort to create what he described as a pro-Iran echo chamber—included a small task force of Obama loyalists who deluged media outlets with stories aimed at eroding Flynn’s credibility, multiple sources revealed.
The operation primarily focused on discrediting Flynn, an opponent of the Iran nuclear deal, in order to handicap the Trump administration’s efforts to disclose secret details of the nuclear deal with Iran that had been long hidden by the Obama administration.
“The Obama administration knew that Flynn was going to release the secret documents around the Iran deal, which would blow up their myth that it was a good deal that rolled back Iran. So in December the Obama NSC started going to work with their favorite reporters, selectively leaking damaging and incomplete information about Flynn.”
Insiders familiar with the anti-Flynn campaign told the Free Beacon that these Obama loyalists plotted in the months before Trump’s inauguration to establish a set of roadblocks before Trump’s national security team, which includes several prominent opponents of diplomacy with Iran. The Free Beacon first reported on this effort in January.
“After Trump was inaugurated some of those people stayed in and some began working from the outside, and they cooperated to keep undermining Trump. Last night’s resignation was their first major win, but unless the Trump people get serious about cleaning house, it won’t be the last.”
Sources who spoke to the Free Beacon requested anonymity in order to speak freely about the situation and avoid interfering with the White House’s official narrative about Flynn, which centers on his failure to adequately inform the president about a series of phone calls with Russian officials.
Flynn took credit for his missteps regarding these phone calls in a brief statement released late Monday evening. Trump administration officials subsequently stated that Flynn’s efforts to mislead the president and vice president about his contacts with Russia could not be tolerated.

However, multiple sources closely involved in the situation pointed to a larger, more secretive campaign aimed at discrediting Flynn and undermining the Trump White House.
“It’s undeniable that the campaign to discredit Flynn was well underway before Inauguration Day, with a very troublesome and politicized series of leaks designed to undermine him,” said one veteran national security adviser with close ties to the White House team. “This pattern reminds me of the lead up to the Iran deal, and probably features the same cast of characters.”
The Free Beacon first reported in January that, until its final days in office, the Obama administration hosted several pro-Iran voices who were critical in helping to mislead the American public about the terms of the nuclear agreement. This included a former Iranian government official and the head of the National Iranian American Council, or NIAC, which has been accused of serving as Iran’s mouthpiece in Washington, D.C.

A prominent Florida political blogger has been arrested in Broward County.
Javier F. Manjarres, 44, was arrested Saturday by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. He was charged with attempted murder. An arrest report was not immediately available Monday.
According to a Jan. 2012 report in the Miami New Times, this is not Manjarres first run in with the law. In 1995, he was arrested for burglary with assault.
According to the Miami New Times story, Manjarres drove to the Boca Raton home of a man who, at the time, was dating Manjarres’ ex-girlfriend. Manjarres reportedly punched the man while the woman called 911….(read more)

How Hillary Got Classified Information Onto Her Private EmailPosted: January 27, 2016 Filed under: Crime & Corruption, Law & Justice, Politics, White House | Tags: Arrest, Arrest warrant, Bail, Barack Obama, Bonneville County, Classified Documents, Felony, Hillary Clinton, Pantsuit Report, United States Army War College Leave a comment
If the latest allegations are true, Hillary Clinton and her minions committed several felonies. And they knew this when they did it.
Kurt Schlichter writes: Hillary Clinton’s acolytes are racing to dismiss the latest allegations that classified material was cut and pasted into her emails, but this isn’t some mere oversight that can be hand-waved away with a shrug and a sad trombone honk. One doesn’t spill classified material into an unclassified system accidentally or through mere negligence. What these new revelations show—if they are true—is conduct that was conscious, intentional, and felonious as all get-out.
In basic and open-source terms, there is no one big computer system where innocuous, unclassified material shares space with classified material. They are kept on physically separate computer systems: there is the unclassified system, and there are several classified systems. They don’t connect, unless someone chooses to intentionally connect them.
When there is spillage of classified material into unclassified systems, all hell breaks loose. Well, at least it does when it’s not a friend of the administration doing the spilling.
Filching Information from a Secure Facility
Let’s take a look at what it would take to make this happen. Hillary Clinton refused to use a secure system. She wanted to use her own system because she could control it and unlawfully shield it from the prying eyes of the American people and their representatives. Her minions therefore had to deliberately act to circumvent the rules and procedures put in place to prevent people from doing exactly what Clinton wanted done.
[Read the full story here, at thefederalist.com]
First, someone would have to enter a secure facility—usually called a SCIF—to access a classified document on one of the secure systems. These terminals are behind locked doors with access controls and multiple security measures. You have to have the clearance to enter, and you leave your Android, iPad, laptop, and everything else with a chip outside.
OH YES HE DID: Albuquerque Man Arrested After Stealing His Own Mom’s Posole StewPosted: December 8, 2015 Filed under: Crime & Corruption, Food & Drink, U.S. News | Tags: Arrest, Arrest warrant, Burglary, Complaint, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Posole, Pozole, Search warrant, Stew, Tuesday Afternoon Leave a comment
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Jonathan Ray wanted some of his mom’s posole last week.
So much so that, police say, he broke into her Northeast Albuquerque home, made a beeline for the fridge and ran away with a pot of homemade posole.
“He opened the door and grabbed that big pot of posole I had made for my kids. He knew I had made it.”
— The suspect’s mother
Ray’s mom called police Nov. 29 and told officers the alleged stew theft happened the day before. She said she was going home and was parking her car in her garage when the 23-year-old Ray texted her saying he was hungry and was going to her house to eat, according to a criminal complaint filed in Metropolitan Court.
The mom told him not to.
As soon as she walked into her house near Juan Tabo and Interstate 40, Ray ran in through the back door and went directly to the fridge. He grabbed the pot of traditional New Mexican holiday stew and ran back out, according to the complaint.
“He needs help.”
— Suspect’s mom
“He opened the door and grabbed that big pot of posole I had made for my kids,” his mother said Monday. “He knew I had made it.”
The mom went to the backyard and saw that the lock on her gate was broken and a trash can was propped up against the gate. She later discovered her garage was damaged. Read the rest of this entry »

Mini-revolver hidden inside arrested Tennessee teen
NOVEMBER 19–The Tennessee woman who had a loaded gun hidden in her vagina when she was booked into jail last year has pleaded guilty to an assortment of criminal charges that will cost her several years in prison, court records show.
“Following Archer’s arrest, a TSG reporter broke the news to Souther that his revolver had been stashed inside Archer. ‘Oh, gosh,’ Souther said. He added that while he wanted “the little fellow” returned, the revolver would need ‘a bath in bleach.'”
Dallas Archer, 21, is scheduled to be sentenced today for introducing contraband into a penal facility, a felony for which she will serve a three-year prison term, according to a plea agreement.
Archer, seen above, has also copped to vandalism and failure to appear charges, the sentences for which will be served consecutively following the completion of the custodial term for the contraband count. She will also have to pay about $1000 in fines.
The Kingsport resident was arrested last April (when she was 19) for driving with a suspended license. As Archer was being booked into the local lockup, a female jailer searching the suspect “located an unknown item in her crotch,” according to a Kingsport Police Department report.
[Read the full story here, at The Smoking Gun]
Archer was then accompanied by the jailer and a female cop to a bathroom, where the investigators discovered that the teenager had a loaded handgun concealed in her vagina. After the pistol was “recovered,” cops determined that it was a .22 caliber North American Arms mini-revolver (which can hold five rounds).
A police check determined that the four-inch gun had been stolen in 2013 from an automobile owned by John Souther, a Kingsport resident.
Clock-Boy Mohamed Finally Shows His Suspect DevicePosted: October 23, 2015 Filed under: Guns and Gadgets, Mediasphere, Politics, Religion | Tags: Ahmed Mohamed, Arrest, Barack Obama, Clock, Clock Boy, Irving, Muslim, Saudi Arabia, Texas, The Dallas Morning News, United Nations, White House 1 Comment
Ahmed Mohamed, the Texas-based ‘clock boy,’ picked up his supposed clock from the Irving police in an evidence bag marked ‘hoax bomb.’
Obama’s hug came one day before the boy’s family surprise announcement that they would migrate to the Muslim theocracy of Qatar, and only 10 days after the boy hugged the genocidal Islamic dictator of Sudan.
The boy’s hug was made on the same day that he declared his homeland is the Islamic theocracy of Sudan.
The boy did not bring his non-functional “clock” on his Islamic show-and-tell to his progressive allies in New York, Qatar, Saudi Arabia — yet another Muslim theocracy — then Sudan and then to Obama’s White House. He did bring his suspect device to his Irving, Texas, school on Sept. 14, causing his teachers and the local police to suspect the supposed clock was a crude hoax-bomb. The “clock” is actually a dismantled table-clock, stuffed into a metal-looking pencil case.
The clock-in-box is non-functional because the screen can’t be seen when the box is closed. The suspect device is also hazardous, because the 120-volt power system is exposed. Read the rest of this entry »

And she’s making over $53,000 a year off taxpayer money
Emma Colton reports: A Milwaukee government employee whose job was to know the signs of drug houses and report them was arrested and charged this month for running a drug ring out of her own home.
“Inside the house they found a sandwich bag filled with heroin, 1.5 pounds of weed, multiple guns, ammunition, a digital scale and $3,600 in cash.”
Milwaukee’s Department of Neighborhood Services employ Regina Sims as its property management coordinator to investigate suspected houses of dealing drugs. But after a “citizen witness reported multiple instances of drug dealing going on” at Sims’s house for about a year, according to FOX6, police got a search warrant and found a treasure trove of drugs, weapons and cash.
“citizen witness reported multiple instances of drug dealing going on at that residence for roughly one year.”
The police told FOX6 that inside the house they found a sandwich bag filled with heroin, 1.5 pounds of weed, multiple guns, ammunition, a digital scale and $3,600 in cash. Read the rest of this entry »

A Pittsburgh cashier armed with a sword chased off two would-be machete-wielding robbers, police said. Below is what appears to be raw security video.
New York Daily News‘ Meg Wagner reports:
Don’t bring a machete to a sword fight.
A Pennsylvania convenience store worker clerk one-upped two machete-wielding thieves who tried to rob his store and chased them off with his own bigger blade, police said.
Two teens wearing masks busted into Perry Market in Pittsburgh just before 10 p.m. Friday.
Both of the wannabe robbers were armed with footlong knives. One pointed his at a customer. The second jumped behind the counter and demanded cash from the on-duty clerk.
But the well-prepared cashier refused to give in. Instead, the clerk swatted at the weapon — and pulled out his sword.
“Then when he hit the sword that the dude had in his hand — my brother hit the sword — he ran away,” the clerk’s brother M.C. Hydare told WPXI. Hydare said he was in the store during the robbery. Read the rest of this entry »

New York City Murders Are On The Rise
Rocco Parascandola, Kerry Burke, Larry McShane report: A dramatic drop in stop-and-frisk encounters has emboldened criminals and made cops more reluctant to take proactive police action, even as murders and shootings are on the rise in the city.
“Everyone is afraid to make stops. No one wants to get jammed up. They’re telling us the stops have to be quality stops. But if you make a stop, and you think it’s a good one, and the guy has nothing on him, is that a good stop?”
— Brooklyn police supervisor
The frightening message — echoed by police supervisors and union leaders — comes as stop-and-frisk encounters are on pace to plunge by 42% this year, with 20,000 fewer street stops.
“What you’re seeing now are the perps carrying their guns because they’re not afraid to carry them. We’ve created an atmosphere where we’ve handcuffed the police. We are sitting back, taking a less proactive approach.”
— Ed Mullins, head of the Sergeants Benevolent Association
There were 11,652 stops across the city through June 3 — projecting to roughly 28,000 for the year, records obtained by the Daily News show. As the number of stops fell, the number of murders spiked 19.5% during the first five months of the year, the number of people shot is up 9.2% and the number of shooting incidents jumped 9%.
“Based on this year’s drop…absent any other factor, you have to ask the question: Are the cops now reluctant to engage?”
“What you’re seeing now are the perps carrying their guns because they’re not afraid to carry them,” said Ed Mullins, head of the Sergeants Benevolent Association. “We’ve created an atmosphere where we’ve handcuffed the police. We are sitting back, taking a less proactive approach.”
Mullins said the city’s criminal element has been operating without fear while cops have been somewhat neutered in the last two years — and he wasn’t the only one to raise the issue.
“Based on this year’s drop . . . absent any other factor, you have to ask the question: Are the cops now reluctant to engage?” wondered one high-ranking police source.
Critics of the NYPD told The News there was no correlation between the two sets of numbers — while stop-and-frisk supporters said the lower frisk numbers led to the higher crime figures.
City cops, citing increased scrutiny from the NYPD’s inspector general, the state attorney general and City Hall, say the cutback on stops is about self-preservation. Read the rest of this entry »

Fake Cellphone Towers on Planes Used to Target Criminals, but Also Sift Through Thousands of Other Phones
WASHINGTON—Devlin Barrett reports: The Justice Department is scooping up data from thousands of cellphones through fake communications towers deployed on airplanes, a high-tech hunt for criminal suspects that is snagging a large number of innocent Americans, according to people familiar with the operations.
“The program cuts out phone companies as an intermediary in searching for suspects. Rather than asking a company for cell-tower information to help locate a suspect, which law enforcement has criticized as slow and inaccurate, the government can now get that information itself.”
The U.S. Marshals Service program, which became fully functional around 2007, operates Cessna aircraft from at least five metropolitan-area airports, with a flying range covering most of the U.S. population, according to people familiar with the program.
“Similar devices are used by U.S. military and intelligence officials operating in other countries, including in war zones, where they are sometimes used to locate terrorist suspects, according to people familiar with the work. In the U.S., these people said, the technology has been effective in catching suspected drug dealers and killers. They wouldn’t say which suspects were caught through this method.”
Planes are equipped with devices—some known as “dirtboxes” to law-enforcement officials because of the initials of the Boeing Co. unit that produces them—which mimic cell towers of large telecommunications firms and trick cellphones into reporting their unique registration information.

This makes me think the The Shamrock Crawl can lead to more cherished memories than I realized. It’s a tradition I underestimated. As they say, “Virginia is for Lovers”.
For the Washington Post, Tom Jackman reports: What do you get when you cross love with a pub crawl in Arlington? Why, a naked woman (allegedly!) outside the Arlington County jail, of course… From ARLNow.com:
A 26-year-old Reston woman was arrested Saturday night after allegedly showing up naked at the Arlington Magistrate’s Office.
Police say Maura Fussell arrived at the magistrate’s office around 11:00 p.m. seeking to visit her husband, who had been arrested in Clarendon earlier that day. She was drunk, completely naked and refused to get dressed or leave in a cab, according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck.
Sternbeck was unable to say whether Fussell arrived at the office wearing clothes and subsequently removed them, or whether she arrived there naked. Fussell was arrested and charged with indecent exposure and drunk in public. She was held in jail until sober, police said.
The woman “was given several opportunities to put her clothes back on,” Sternbeck said, “exit the magistrate’s office and go home in a cab. But she refused and took the charges,” which meant spending the night in the county jail. Read the rest of this entry »
Quote of the Day: George LopezPosted: February 28, 2014 Filed under: Entertainment, Food & Drink | Tags: Arrest, Associated Press, Caesars Windsor, Casino, George Lopez, Lopez, Ontario, Public intoxication, Public space, TMZ (website) 2 Comments
“…I was trying to sleep it off, unfortunately, it was on the casino floor.”
Comedian George Lopez was arrested at Caesars Windsor Thursday night.
The scary thing is, I recognize the pattern of that carpet. If it’s like the Ceasar’s in Vegas, I recall it’s pretty comfortable, and inviting. Who hasn’t slept one off on a Casino floor? Since when is that cause for arrest? Anyone who’s been to Ceasar’s understands that George didn’t do anything worth involving law enforcement. Maybe things are different in Ontario. If it was Las Vegas? We wouldn’t be reading about it. What happens in Ontario apparently doesn’t stay in Ontario.
The Associated Press reports: Provincial police say officers stationed at the casino in Ontario arrested Lopez for allegedly being intoxicated in a public place, then turned him over to local police. Windsor police say only that a man was arrested at the casino but later released with no charges laid.
..Lopez says in a statement via his publicist, Ina Treciokas: “Tied one on last night. Not feeling great this morning. I was trying to sleep it off, unfortunately, it was on the casino floor.”

A naked woman wearing a pair of angel wings was arrested early yesterday after police spotted her walking on an Arkansas street.
Christine Lawrence, 47, was busted for indecent exposure after a pair of Mountain Home Police Department officers responded to a 3:20 AM call about “a female walking down the middle of the road with nothing on besides angel wings,” according to a police report.
When one patrolman sought to speak with Lawrence, she fled into her nearby Circle Drive residence. As Lawrence was subsequently being arrested, she struggled with police, leading to an additional charge of resisting arrest.

The police report does not indicate why Lawrence was promenading in her birthday suit, though yesterday happened to be her birthday.
Seen in the above mug shot, Lawrence was booked into the Baxter County jail on the two misdemeanor charges. She remains locked up in lieu of $790 bond, and is scheduled for a February 4 court appearance.

KNOXVILLE – Police arrested a 15-year-old West High School student on Monday morning for assaulting a teacher after he used a lighter to ignite her hair and shirt.

The suspect admitted to the assault during a subsequent police interview. He was charged with aggravated assault and evading arrest, and then taken to a juvenile detention facility.
The fire was put out before the teacher received burns to her skin.
