Via NBC:

The FBI arrested two men in Southern California, including one at Los Angeles International Airport, on suspicion of terrorism related charges, law enforcement officials told NBC News.

The two men, who were unarmed, are suspected of planning to travel abroad to join ISIS, sources said. One man was arrested at LAX, the other in Orange County.

There was never any local public safety threat, sources told NBC news.

The FBI, in connection with the joint terrorism task force, also served at least two search warrants in connection with the case.

Like a number of recent cases, the sources said the unarmed suspects fit a pattern of individuals who have been recruited by ISIS as foreign fighters, particularly through social media propaganda.

Hillary Clinton Endorsed By Rapper 50 Cent, Claims Bill’s Serial Adultery “Conditioned” Her For The Job…

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 9.46.40 AM

OG Pant Suits has the gangsta rap vote locked up now that 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg endorsed her in the same week.

WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton is dominating the hip-hop primary.

The Democratic front-runner locked in another rapper’s endorsement, with 50 Cent proclaiming “It’s Hillary time” in an interview with the Daily Beast published Thursday.

The rapper, actor and entrepreneur said he respected Clinton’s positions as well as her decision to stand by President Bill Clinton after his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

“Things happen at points, and her seeing past that made her human to me,” he said. “It made that love between her and Bill real to me. When you make other people feel different because of what they’ve conditioned themselves to feel about the subject, it made me look at her and think she’s made life choices that she’s willing to stand by.”

The hip-hop mogul is the latest rapper to throw his weight behind Clinton.

Snoop Dogg said earlier this week on Bravo that he’ll be backing Clinton “to have a woman speaking from a global perspective as far as representing America.”

Suspect In Horrible D.C. Quadruple Torture Murder Arrested

Identified for being involved in crime by leaving DNA on the pizza he ordered while torturing and killing the family…

Via Daily Mail:

Police have captured the man suspected of torturing and killing a wealthy family and their housekeeper before setting their mansion alight a week ago.

Daron Wint, 34, is wanted in the murders of American Iron Works CEO Savvas Savopoulos, his wife Amy, 10-year-old son Philip and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, who were all found murdered in their Washington D.C. home on May 14.

The dramatic arrest just before 11.30pm on Thursday came after US Marshals located Wint at a Howard Johnson Inn hotel close to Route 1 in Northeast DC, police told Daily Mail Online.

When they moved in to arrest him they discovered he had just left in a white Chevrolet Cruze with two women, the Washington Post reported. One of the women was driving.

That vehicle was traveling with a Ford box truck carrying two men, including his brother. The truck was allegedly filled with $10,000 cash.

One might not think the picture of some 7th graders making gun signs with their fingers to be so unusual or worthy of comment.

But these students are actually doing something quite brave and supportive of the First Amendment, in addition to the Second Amendment.

In present day school climate. where students have faced unreasonable discipline for playing with toy guns made out of pop tarts, having pictures of guns, and yes, even finger guns, such acts take on a courageous nature.

We also note that the young man second from the right is CJ Pearson, a 7th grade Conservative from Georgia, who we’ve reported on in the past. Conservative and not afraid to show it, CJ seems to have found partners in supporting the Constitution.

Good show, guys!

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) knew last year that an illegal alien California camp counselor known as “Papa Bear” was being investigated on child molestation and child pornography charges but did nothing about it, Iowa U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley claims in a letter sent to DHS Sec. Jeh Johnson on Wednesday.

Edgar Covarrubias-Padilla was arrested May 7 and charged with four felonies including child molestation and the distribution of child pornography. According to local news reports, authorities believe that Covarrubias-Padilla also produced child pornography.

Baltimore Police Commissioner: Police Having Trouble Policing, Being Surrounded At Every Call

Screen Shot 2015-05-21 at 9.30.06 PM

What race-baiting builds, murder and violence has spiked since Freddie Gray.

Via Baltimore Sun:

Police are struggling to stop violence in West Baltimore, where officers have been routinely surrounded by dozens of people, video cameras and hostility while doing basic police work since the death of Freddie Gray, Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts said Wednesday.

The Western District, the site of Gray’s arrest and the epicenter of the protests and rioting that followed his death, has seen the majority of the city’s recent shootings and homicides, which are coming faster than they have in eight years.

In response, Batts said, police are taking measures to re-establish relationships with West Baltimore neighborhoods still angry over Gray’s death April 19, Batts said.

Police have sent in commanders from other districts with experience and contacts in West Baltimore. Backup officers are being sent to routine calls to help protect officers.

“Officers tell me and their supervisors, any time they pull up to respond to a call, they have 30 to 50 people surrounding them,” Batts said. “We have to send in multiple units just to do basic police work, which says we have to work on community engagement.”

Shooter Of SC Deputy Sheriff Comes Out Shooting And Is Taken Out With The Tax Payer Relief After A Ten Hour Standoff…

SC Shooter

The ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ mantra is old and worn out. Update to this previous story.

Via WCSC

The man police suspected in the attempted murder of a Berkeley County deputy was identified through a DNA match, and was fatally shot by police after opening fire on them, authorities say.

Jerome Thomas Caldwell, 32, of Mount Pleasant, died after a 10-hour standoff, according to Charleston County Coroner Rae Wooten. Caldwell was pronounced dead at 1:59 p.m., Wooten said.

Charleston Police Chief Greg Mullen said at 1:47 p.m. Thursday, Caldwell came out of the rear of the apartment in which he had been holed up since approximately 4 a.m. and fired multiple shots at police officers. The officers returned fire, fatally striking Caldwell, Mullen said.

On Thursday afternoon, Caldwell’s mother said she spoke on the phone to her son while he was inside the apartment and right before he decided to come out. According to the mother, Caldwell, who lived in Mount Pleasant, was in downtown because he was visiting his child in the hospital.

Caldwell’s mother said her son asked her to turn him over to investigators so the family would get the reward money.

Mullen said police negotiators were in contact with Caldwell throughout the day by telephone. Mullen also said shots had been heard inside the apartment throughout the day during those negotiations.

“Throughout these negotiations, there were discussions about shooting police officers, there were discussions about committing suicide, and there were also discussions about several demands that were made,” Mullen said. “As we talked with this individual, our goal was to have him come out peaceably, and this situation end without any incident.”

Mullen reiterated this was preliminary information in a fluid situation.

“There’s been a lot of developments that have occurred, and we are working with SLED,” Mullen said. “They are here on the scene, their crime scene is here, and they will be handling the investigation as we go forward. The police department will continue to cooperate in any way that we can.”

Mullen sent out their sympathies to Caldwell’s family, who he said would be receiving regular updates from police as the investigation continues.

Never really followed up on by the police.

Via N.Y. Post:

Josh Duggar, the oldest child on “19 Kids and Counting,” was investigated on claims he molested five minor girls, including his sisters, a bombshell report claims.

According to police documents obtained by In Touch magazine, Josh (who is now a 27-year-old married father of three) was accused of molesting the girls before Springfield, Arkansas, police opened a felony investigation in 2006.

The allegations against Josh, beginning in 2002, include forcible fondling.

The family’s patriarch, Jim Bob, reportedly waited more than a year to contact police after Josh, a minor at the time, confessed to inappropriate touching.

Ahmed Mohammed, Hot Dog Vendor At NYC Ground Zero Memorial, Charges $30.00 For A Hot Dog With Mustard…

Hot Dog

Halāl hot dogs with Heinz mustard are expensive.

Via NBC NY

Meet Ahmed Mohammed. He might be the most expensive hot dog vendor in New York, especially if he thinks you’re a tourist.

NBC 4 New York cameras recently captured him trying to charge a man named David $15 for a hot dog and a pretzel near the World Trade Center.

“I said, ‘What are you, a crook?'” David later told NBC 4 New York. “I’m not a tourist, so I know the price in New York.”

Customer after customer recounted how the vendor tried to charge them $20 to $30 for a hot dog.

“I just felt like I was getting ripped off, and it’s just making the 9/11 grounds like a big tourist trap,” one woman said.

Ben from New Jersey left his bitten hot dog behind when he was told the price.

“He was like, ‘Fifteen, maybe 10,'” he said. “And I left my bitten hot dog there. That was it.”

Jessica Lappin of the Alliance for Downtown New York said “it gives New York a bad name.”

“To rip-off somebody, to charge them $35 for a hot dog and a pretzel, that leaves a terrible impression,” she said.

Lappin learned about Mohammed when fights started breaking out last week over his prices.[…]

When a self-identified NBC 4 New York reporter asked the price of a hot dog, Mohammed said $3. When asked why the price changes, he claimed not to speak English — even though cameras had captured him speaking English earlier, asking customers: “Yes, guys. Yes, sir, you need anything to eat or drink? Have a good day, guys.”

Part of the problem is that Mohammed’s prices aren’t posted, as required by the city’s Department of Consumer Affairs. At a hot dog cart around the corner, for example, there’s no question how much a hot dog costs — it’s listed at $1.

Breaking: Mosby Announces Charges Brought By Grand Jury Against 6 Baltimore Officers In Death Of Freddie Gray

Screen Shot 2015-05-21 at 6.04.37 PM

BALTIMORE (WJZ/AP)—City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said a grand jury has indicted all six officers in the the Freddie Gray’s death.
Six officers were charged on May 1, following the death of Freddie Gray–Mosby calling the arrest illegal.

She also announced that reckless endangerment was added to the charges against the officers and the charges of false imprisonment was removed.

Screen Shot 2015-05-21 at 6.56.01 PM

Several differences in the charges reflect an adjustment to fit more of a negligent or reckless endangerment framework.

1. The charges of assault were made ‘negligent’ assault.
2. They added a reckless endangerment charge
3. They added a manslaughter by vehicle to Officer Goodson, since there is no actual intentional assault action on the officer’s part, other than potentially the use of the vehicle to in some way to injure Gray. However given that the arresting officers weren’t driving the car and Sgt. White simply looked in on him and left, any manslaughter charge as to them would seem highly questionable as there is no action on their part to even result in the manslaughter.
4. Mosby also has dropped the false imprisonment. In some ways that was the most outlandish charge. When an officer makes a mistaken arrest he is not charged with false imprisonment. He may face some departmental issues, but it is not considered a crime. This charge presents a chilling effect on officers and maybe was the most problematic for that reason. Now, simply alleging misconduct for as illegal arrest, is stepping that back a bit. However, she has left a misconduct in office, for an illegal arrest charge for the 3 arresting officers, so she will still have to justify why it was an illegal arrest, when the defense alleges the knife was in fact illegal so the arrest appears justified on that reason alone.

For 3 arresting officers it means exposure to 5 fewer years prison time, for the other three it means exposure to 5 more years.

There is an old saw that a prosecutor, in this case Mosby, can go to a grand jury and indict a ham sandwich, because a presentation to a grand jury only involves the prosecutor presenting her version of the evidence. It is not an indication of the veracity of the charges.

Teacher Accused Of Allowing Middle School Students To Have Sex In Classroom

Forget reading and writing, he just threw condoms at them.

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. — An Atlanta-area teacher has been arrested after a parent complained he allowed middle school students to have sex in a storage unit in his classroom.

Multiple news outlets report 25-year-old Quentin Wright, a math teacher at The Champion School in Stone Mountain, was taken into custody Tuesday. He has been charged with four misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

An arrest warrant says Wright arranged times with students when the classroom would be empty and gave them condoms.
The investigation began after a mother said she found text messages between Wright and her son.

A DeKalb County Schools spokesman says they are cooperating with the District Attorney’s Office and Wight has been removed from the classroom.
It is unclear if he has a lawyer.

ISIS Running Ads In Lebanese Newspapers Looking For People Who Can Help Maintain U.S. Weaponry Seized In Ramadi…

Via FC:

The Islamic State’s seizure of Ramadi was also a U.S. weapons bonanza for the terrorist group.  As Iraqi troops fled the field of battle in fear, ISIS moved in quickly to confiscate the U.S. military equipment and weapons they left behind.  According to numerous news outlets, the Islamic State seized “dozens of pieces of U.S. military equipment, including tanks, armored personnel carriers, and artillery pieces,” as the Iraqi army disintegrated.

A Pentagon spokesman, Col. Steve Warren, estimated that: “a half dozen U.S. tanks were abandoned, a similar number of artillery pieces, a larger number of armored personnel carriers, and about 100 wheeled vehicles — like Humvees.  Some of the vehicles were in working condition; and, some were not…as they hadn’t been moved in months,” he added.  But, it didn’t take long for the Islamic State to find a way to overcome this obstacle — as the group had already been running advertisements in Lebanese newspapers and elsewhere, including social media — recruiting personnel who can “operate and maintain U.S. military equipment.”
