(ATHENS, Greece.) JUST IN: A 32-year-old pilot has confessed to the killing of his young British wife, Caroline Crouch, police say, in a crime that shocked the country #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.19: Babis Anagnostopoulos was picked up after attending his late wife’s memorial service on the island of Alonnisos, where she grew up.

ATHENS: Caroline Crouch Case: Husband confesses to her killing after he had claimed three robbers had broken into the couple’s home in Glyka Nera, near Athens, and tied him up on 11 May.

Instagram selfie by Babis Anagnostopoulos
Caroline Crouch was born in the UK but grew up on the island of Alonnisos in the Aegean Sea

But after a lengthy investigation, police said his story did not add up.

They found no trace of the gang he claimed had tied him up, suffocated his wife and stolen €15,000 (£13,000; $18,000) in cash.

During a memorial service on Thursday, Babis Anagnostopoulos was pictured hugging his late wife’s mother

Then they checked a range of technical devices to corroborate his account. Caroline Crouch’s biometric watch revealed her pulse readings on the day she died. Babis Anagnostopoulos’s movements were also tracked via his mobile phone, and the couple’s surveillance system also highlighted discrepancies.

Although the suspect said he had been tied up, police said he had managed to use his phone at the time.

Crouch, 20, was born in the UK and moved with her parents to the picturesque Aegean island of Alonnisos as a child. She was living with her husband and baby in Glyka Nera when she was attacked.

CASE NOTES: How personal data cracked the caseIt was ultimately a data trail left by 21st-Century tech that led the police to this breakthrough. Caroline Crouch’s smart watch showed that her heart was still beating at the time her husband claimed she was murdered. The activity tracker on his phone showed him moving around the house while he said he was tied up; and the recorded time at which data cards were removed from the home security camera also told a different story to his version of events.In a world where we are all generating acres of personal data, all the time, about our health and movements, there are concerns about how secure that information is and whether it could fall into the wrong hands. In this case, however, it has accurately signposted a young woman’s final moments.Police initially posted a €300,000 reward for information in finding the killers, condemning the “barbarity” of the crime. Five days after his wife’s death, the pilot posted an Instagram picture from their wedding with the message: “Always together. Farewell my love.”Instagram/Babis AnagnostopoulosBabis Anagnostopoulos confessed after eight hours of questioning, police saidDetectives approached him after the memorial service on Alonnisos on Thursday, asking him to go with them to Athens, saying there had been a breakthrough in the inquiry and they wanted to identify a suspect. It was only when he arrived in the capital he was told that he was the suspect.He confessed after eight hours of questioning, they said. Greek reports said he told police the couple had often argued in recent months.A case that stunned GreeksThe killing has become a cause celebre in Greece. Initially it raised concerns about possible domestic security, and the husband had alleged that a foreign gang had carried out the attack. A Georgian man was arrested in the early days of the inquiry as he crossed into neighbouring Bulgaria.Alpha TVBabis Anagnostopoulos was led away by police and then airlifted to AthensNational TV interrupted coverage of the Euro 2020 football championships on Thursday night to bring details of the confession. Cars and passers by stopped outside cafes in Athens to see the latest development, BBC reporter Kostas Koukoumakas reports.

(BRAZIL) JUST IN: At least 25 people including a police officer have been killed in a shootout in Rio de Janeiro, according to local media #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – May.07: Police launched the operation after receiving reports that drug traffickers were recruiting children for their gang.

BRAZIL: At least 25 killed in Rio de Janeiro shootout and took place during a police operation in a favela in the Jacarezinho area of the city: Police in the Brazilian city confirmed the death of one of their officers, Inspector Andre Leonardo de Mello Frias. A statement on Facebook said “he honoured the profession he loved and will be missed”.

Civil showed off weapons and drugs seized during the raid

Two passengers on a metro train were hit by bullets but survived. 

Police Chief Ronaldo Oliveira told Reuters news agency that Thursday’s raid was “the largest number of deaths in a police operation in Rio”. 

According to local news, the gang targeted in this raid engages in drug trafficking, mugging, murders and kidnappings. 

Television images showed suspects trying to escape across rooftops as police entered the favela. 

ReutersCivil Police showed off weapons and drugs seized during the raid

Meanwhile, residents of Jacarezinho have shared accounts of what they witnessed on social media.

One resident posted a photo of his blood-covered floor and said two people had died in his house as police chased the criminals. The man, who did not want to give his name, said he would try to move out of the area as soon as possible. 

“We’re trying to sell the house as fast as possible, we can’t continue to live here,” he said. 

Other residents said officers had seized their phones, accusing them of warning gang members of the raid. 

Sociology professor Ignacio Cano from the Laboratory for the Analysis of Violence at Rio State University dismissed the reasons the police gave for the raid: “To say that drug traffickers recruit children and teenagers to deal drugs is almost laughable because everyone knows that these gangs have minors who work for them. 

“To say that you’re going to launch a massive raid because you’ve discovered that traffickers recruit children is a joke,” he told O Dia newspaper. 

ReutersRio de Janeiro is one of Brazil’s most violent states

Rio de Janeiro is one of Brazil’s most violent states and vast areas are under the control of criminals, many of them linked to powerful drug-trafficking gangs. 

Security forces in Brazil have often been accused of excessive use of force against the civilian population during anti-crime operations in major cities. 

A court ruling last June restricted police action in poor neighbourhoods of Rio during the pandemic unless it was deemed essential. 

Rio de Janeiro is the city with the biggest percentage of people living in shanty towns in Brazil – 22%. It’s a population of 1,3 million, 70% of which are black. 

Worrying resurgence

Analysis by Camilla Motta, BBC Brasil reporter, Sao Paulo

Police operations targeting favelas controlled by drug traffickers are quite common in Rio. This, however, is the deadliest operation since 2016.

Since a court ruling last June restricted police action in poor neighbourhoods in Rio, the number of deaths in shootouts in favelas has fallen. 

In the first month alone, deaths plummeted 70% when compared to the average recorded since 2007, according to the research group Grupo de Estudos dos Novos Ilegalismos, from Universidade Federal Fluminense. 

The drop was not followed by a rise in crime. In fact, property crimes were down by 40% and homicides by 48%. Researchers argue this shows that police operations are not the best strategy to tackle crime.

(SAN DIEGO, Calif.) JUST IN: A packed boat being used in a suspected human smuggling operation capsized Sunday and broke apart in powerful surf along the rocky San Diego coast, killing three people and injuring more than two dozen others, authorities said #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – May.03: The original call was for a handful of people overboard but as rescuers arrived in boats and jet skis they quickly realized “it was going to be a bigger situation with more people,” said San Diego Lifeguard Services Lt. Rick Romero.

Associated Press: San Diego: at least three killed and 27-hospitalised after boat capsizes & Lifeguards, the U.S. Coast Guard and other agencies responded around 10:30 a.m. following reports of an overturned vessel in the waves near the rugged peninsula of Point Loma, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

Press TV News

“There are people in the water, drowning, getting sucked out the rip current there,” he said.

Seven people were pulled from the waves, including three who drowned, said Romero. One person was rescued from a cliff and 22 others managed to make it to shore on their own, he said.

“Once we arrived on scene, the boat had basically been broken apart,” Romero said. “Conditions were pretty rough: 5 to 6 feet of surf, windy, cold.”

A total of 27 people were transported to hospitals with “a wide variety of injuries” including hypothermia, Romero said. Most of the victims were able to walk themselves to ambulances, he said.

Officials said the group was overcrowded on a 40-foot (12-meter) cabin cruiser that is larger than the typical open-top wooden panga-style boats often used by smugglers to bring people illegally into the U.S. from Mexico.

“Every indication from our perspective was this was a smuggling vessel. We haven’t confirmed their nationality,” said Jeff Stephenson, a supervising agent with U.S. Border Patrol.

Under a pandemic-related order in effect since March 2020, migrants from Mexico and people from Central American countries of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras picked up at the border are immediately expelled to Mexico without an opportunity to seek asylum. President Joe Biden has exempted unaccompanied children from expulsions but the vast majority of adults are quickly sent back without facing any consequences.

Border Patrol agents went to hospitals to interview survivors of the capsizing, including the boat’s captain who Stephenson described as a “suspected smuggler.” Smugglers typically face federal charges and those being smuggled are usually deported.

San Diego Fire-Rescue Department spokesman Jose Ysea said when he arrived on scene near the Cabrillo National Monument there was a “large debris field” of splintered wood and other items in the choppy waters.

“In that area of Point Loma it’s very rocky. It’s likely the waves just kept pounding the boat, breaking it apart,” he said.

There were life preservers on board, but it wasn’t known how many or whether any passengers were wearing them, officials said.

Among the rescuers was an unnamed Navy sailor who was in the area with his family and jumped in the water to assist someone in an effort described by Romero as a “huge help.”

Officials believed everyone on board was accounted for right away, but crews in boats and aircraft continued to search the area for several hours for other possible survivors, Ysea said.

On Thursday, border officials intercepted a panga-type vessel traveling without navigation lights 11 miles (18 kilometers) off the coast of Point Loma with 21 people on board. The crew took all 15 men and six women into custody. Agents determined all were Mexican citizens with no legal status to enter the U.S., according to a statement released by Customs and Border Protection. Two of the people on the boat, the suspected smugglers, will face charges, it said.

Border Patrol on Friday said law enforcement officials would be ramping up operations to disrupt maritime smuggling off the coast of San Diego this weekend.

As warmer weather comes to San Diego, there is a misperception that it will make illegal crossings safer or easier, the agency said in a statement.

In early March, an SUV packed with migrants collided with a tractor-trailer in the farming community of Holtville, California, about 125 miles (200 kilometers) east of San Diego. The crash killed 13 of 25 people inside 1997 Ford Expedition, including the driver, in one of the deadliest border-related crashes in U.S. history.

(ORANGE COUNTY, Calif.) OPD Report: Shooting suspect accused of killing four people at an office on Thursday has been identified #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.03: Gonzalez, who is from Fullerton, reportedly knew his victims, which included a 9-year-old boy: Orange Police said his motive may have involved personal or business relationships and Lt. Jennifer Amat noted the shooting was “not a random act of violence.”

Orange shooting suspect Aminadab Gaxiola Gonzalez: ‘The gunman who is accused of killing four people and injuring a fifth at an office complex in Orange, California, was identified by authorities on Thursday as 44-year-old Aminadab Gaxiola Gonzalez

The gunman knew his victims

1 hour ago

California shooting leaves 4 dead, including a child

However, she added that it could potentially take weeks to ascertain the relationship Gonzalez had with the victims.

Gonzalez was wounded as officers responded to the scene on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. PT and was later transported to a local hospital

In a Facebook post, the Orange Police Department said “an officer involved shooting” had occurred.

Gonzalez and a woman found cradling the boy who died were both in “critical but stable condition.”

Gonzalez had been staying at a motel in the nearby city of Anaheim and used a car to drive to the two-story office building on Lincoln Avenue. 

CALIFORNIA SHOOTING SUSPECT KNEW VICTIMS, CHAINED GATES TO OFFICE COMPLEX CLOSED, POLICE REVEAL and upon the arrival, Gonzalez chained the gates to the building, forcing officers to engage with him from the outside.

He was caught on security video wearing a bandana over his face and carrying a semiautomatic handgun and a backpack that contained pepper spray, handcuffs and ammunition.

The target was Unified Homes, a mobile home brokerage business, and victims were found inside offices on the building’s second floor and on an outdoor landing.

If convicted, Gonzalez would be eligible for the death penalty, Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer told reporters on Thursday.

In 2015, Gonzalez was charged in Orange County with cruelty to a child and other counts, according to the Associated Press and NBC Los Angeles.

Speaking to Lauren Gold, a spokeswoman for the city of Anaheim, the AP reported Friday that he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery, served one day in jail and that all other counts were dismissed. The conviction was expunged in 2017. 

It is not clear if the child was his. 

NBC Los Angeles reported that other court filings showed Gonzalez had been cited fortraffic violations in both 2014 and 2015 and that one of the cases indicated that he had been working as a commercial truck driver.

Spitzer said that the police are looking into whether or not the 9-year-old boy — believed to be a child of one of the employees — was being abused before the fatal shooting.

“We know during the pandemic that child abuse and elder abuse were underreported significantly because individuals in those frameworks were staying at home,” Spitzer told reporters. “In this case, we have a child who is deceased, and I want to know, and I want to take into consideration, whether there were any issues of child abuse in the past because that may or may not be relevant to the particular case.”

CBS Los Angeles said a woman who claimed to be one of the family members of the victims said Gonzalez had been married to an agent who left the business.

Fox News’ Dom Calicchio and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

(SYRIA) JUST IN: At least seven civilians, including a child, were killed Sunday in an attack by the Bashar Assad regime on a hospital in northwestern province of Idlib #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.21: The Assad regime once again has carried out a brutal attack on innocent civilians,” the Turkish Defense Ministry said in a written statement:

Assad regime attack on hospital kills 7 civilians in Syria’s Idlib: ‘Five innocent civilians, one of whom is a child, were killed by the regime’s artillery bombardment on a hospital in Idlib’s Atareb,” the ministry said in its initial reaction.

by DAILY SABAH:

Last Update: Mar 21, 2021 3:39 pm:

“The regime, which again carried out crimes against humanity, also injured 10 civilians,” the statement added.

Later, it was reported that seven civilians were killed and at least 14 medics were injured.

According to the White Helmets Syria civil defense group, the attack also caused serious infrastructural damage, putting the hospital out-of-service. Teams from the civil defense group took the injured to the nearest hospital.

The Idlib de-escalation zone was forged under an agreement between Turkey and Russia. The area has been the subject of multiple cease-fire agreements, which have been frequently violated by the Assad regime and its allies.

Most recently, a fragile truce was brokered between Moscow and Ankara in March 2020, in response to months of fighting by the Russia-backed regime. Almost a million people have fled the Assad regime’s offensive, yet the regime still frequently carries out attacks on civilians, hindering most from returning to their homes and forcing them to stay in makeshift camps.

Syria’s war has killed more than 387,000 people and displaced millions since beginning in 2011 with the regime’s brutal repression of anti-government protests.

First Turkish air strikes on Kurdish zone in Syria in 17 months: monitor

March 21, 2021 02:52

BEIRUT: The Turkish airforce conducted its first strikes in 17 months against a zone in north Syria held by Kurdish militia on Saturday night, a monitor said.
“A Turkish fighter jet has struck military positions of Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Saida village in Ain Issa countryside… which caused loud explosions,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said.
This was the first aerial raid since “Operation Peace Spring,” it added — an October 2019 military campaign launched by Ankara and its Syrian allies against the SDF in northern Syria.
That operation, interrupted after two accords negotiated by Ankara with first Washington, and then Moscow, allowed Turkey to seize control of a “safe zone” inside Syria around 120 kilometers long and 32 kilometers deep.
The village of Ain Issa, however, remained in the hands of Kurdish forces.
The air strikes come the same day as “violent clashes” and “intensive rocket fire” on the frontlines of Ain Issa district between SDF forces and Turkish-backed factions, the SOHR said, adding there had been confirmed casualties.
“Clashes between the two sides have been going on for the last 24 hours… Turkish forces have had difficulty advancing since the SDF destroyed a Turkish tank,” the director of the SOHR, Rami Abdul Rahman, told AFP.
The Syrian Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units, which form a vital component of the SDF, are considered by Turkey to be a “terrorist offshoot” of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party.
But they have also been a key ally to the United States and others in the battle against the Daesh group in Syria.

(BELGIUM) LATEST: Two brothers who carried out the devastating Belgium suicide bomb attacks confessed to shooting dead a 76-year-old man at random to see what killing was like, their co-conspirators claim #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.15: Ibrahim and Khalid El-Bakraoui allegedly killed Paul-André Vanderperren, 76, at random in 2014 – two years before carrying out two separate bomb attacks in Brussels killing 31.

Belgium: ‘Brothers murdered 76-year-old man at random before carrying out jihad massacres that killed 31 after three devastating suicide bombs went off on March 22, 2016 – injuring hundreds of people’

“Islamist brothers ‘shot dead a 76-year-old man at random to see what killing was like’ before carrying out Belgium suicide bomb attacks,” by Jemma Carr, MailOnline, March 12, 2021 (thanks to Mary):

At 8am, two bombs were detonated at Zaventem Airport by Ibrahim and co-conspirator Najim Laachraoui, causing the deaths of 14 people near the check-in desks.

More than an hour later, at 9.19am, a third bomb was detonated at Maalbeek Metro station by Khalid, killing another 20 people.

A third airport attacker – whose device failed to go off – so-called ‘man in the hat’ Mohamed Abrini was arrested in Brussels nearly a month after the attacks.

The El-Bakraoui brothers told their fellow attackers that they shot dead Mr Vanderperren ahead of the bombings to ‘test what it was like to kill someone’.

Mr Vanderperren was killed in the Jette municipality of Brussels and his case has never been solved.

He had watched football club Anderlecht play on television in a cafe and was heading home when he was shot.

Police issued an appeal for witnesses in 2018, but the case was closed last year.

But two surviving attackers of the Belgium suicide bomb atrocity – ‘man in the hat’ Abrini and another assailant, Osama Krayem – claim Ibrahim and Khalid said they were responsible for Mr Vanderperren’s death.

Abrini and Krayem – who was caught with Khalid on CCTV moments before he set off the bomb – are facing trial next year.

Krayem is said to have told interviewing police officers in 2016 that ‘Khalid told me he and Ibrahim had shot someone dead on the street’, Flemish newspaper De Morgan reports.

Two years later, Krayem added: ‘Khalid explained it was an elderly person and that they had wanted to test what it was like to kill someone.’…

#2016, #belgium, #bombers, #killing, #suicide

(PARIS, France.) Apellate Court Report: On Thursday last week a man who murdered a Jewish woman had his case overturned due to the fact he was high on marijuana #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.10: The cannabis, you see, allegedly compromised Traoré’s “discernment.” The lower court judge “cited psychiatric evaluations saying Traoré’s consumption of marijuana before the incident led to a ‘delirious episode’ that made him not legally responsible for his actions.” The millions of Americans who have smoked marijuana might wonder how it is that they never got so stoned as to think that throwing a 65-year-old woman out of the window of her third-floor apartment was just the thing to do, but that is now a matter for the Court of Cassation to decide. Muriel Ouaknine Melki, who is a lawyer for the family of Traoré’s victim, Sarah Halimi, observed that the appeal will establish whether or not “the consumption of narcotics can be a cause for exonerating from penal responsibility in criminal matters.”

‘According to the Jerusalem Post Thursday, the appellate Court of Cassation has begun deliberations on whether to overturn the ruling that a Muslim named Kabili Traoré, who murdered an elderly Jewish woman while screaming “Allahu akbar,” will not be tried because he was high on marijuana at the time of the killing’

The case is unlikely, however, to herald a sea change in French jurisprudence. If Traoré’s legal team wins the case, and he continues to be considered not criminally responsible for his act, other accused criminals who can convincingly establish that they were stoned at the time of the act will not suddenly begin to be let off in large numbers. As everyone knows but no one wishes to say, the lower court issued its preposterous ruling not based on a rational evaluation of some correlation between marijuana use and violent anti-Semitism, but wholly and solely because Kobili Traoré is a Muslim who was acting upon his Islamic beliefs regarding Jews, and French authorities don’t wish either to antagonize their restive and prickly Muslim community, or face the ugly reality of Islamic anti-Semitism.

Traoré made it abundantly clear that he was acting on Islamic beliefs. On April 4, 2017, he entered Halimi’s apartment, which was next to his own, and while screaming “Allahu akbar” and calling Halimi “Satan” and “Dirty Jew,” he began to torture her, and ultimately threw her out of her apartment window to her death. The cry of “Allahu akbar,” so beloved of jihadis, and his calling this elderly woman “Satan” indicate the Traoré is aware of teachings such as the Qur’an’s statement that the Jews are the Muslims’ worst enemies (5:82), cursed by Allah (9:30), and to be warred against (9:29).

But Islamic anti-Semitism is the last thing French authorities want to deal with. So they didn’t. Then in June 2017, eighteen prominent French citizens, including historian Georges Bensoussan and philosopher Alain Finkielkraut, joined Frédérique Ries, a member of the European Parliament from Belgium, to lodge a public protest of the fact that the Paris Prosecutor’s Office did not charge Traore with a hate crime, and did not mention anti-Semitism in his indictment.

“French authorities,” said Ries, “have treated her murder with icy silence. No national mobilization for Sarah, she died as the media remained quasi-indifferent.” Some speculated that French authorities glossed over the uncomfortable facts of this case in order not to give ammunition to the Presidential campaign of Marine Le Pen, who was and is calling for an end to France’s open-door immigration policies.

Reining in Marine Le Pen and the “far-right” was more important to French authorities than reining in the likes of Kobili Traoré. And with the marijuana ruling, it got even worse, no doubt far worse than many of those prominent French citizens who protested in June 2017 could have imagined.

Imagine (although this would never happen) if this had been a Jew or Christian who smoked pot, screamed about his religion, and killed a Muslim. Would he be found “not criminally responsible”? Of course not. But in France today, as all over Western Europe, the primary job of the courts and law enforcement authorities is to make sure that Muslims aren’t enraged. They must be appeased at all costs. Will this lead in the long run to a peaceful and harmonious multicultural society? What do you think? And will the Court of Cassation have the courage, in this era of pandemic cowardice, to do the right thing.

(BERLIN, Germany.) JUST IN: A man has been arrested in Berlin on suspicion of killing another person amid reports he might have eaten his victim as prosecutors say they have found indications of cannibalism in the case according to RT News #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.21: A 41-year-old resident of Berlin’s northern district of Pankow has been placed into custody by a local court on Friday. The suspect identified by the German media as Stefan R. is accused of a sexually motivated murder. “It was an act aimed at satisfying the sexual instinct,” the court ruling said: Now, the Berlin Prosecutor’s Office said it had reasons to suspect “cannibalistic background” in this case:

RT World News https://ift.tt/393I2aT

The chilling murder has first come to light when some skeletal remains were discovered in a wooded area in Berlin’s Pankow district in early November: According to the police, the bones were “totally devoid of flesh.” A forensic analysis indicated the bones belonged to a 44-year-old construction worker Stefan T., who vanished without a trace on September.05: The investigation led by the Berlin police homicide department together with the prosecutor’s office led to Stefan R., who is said to be living not far from the place where the bones were found. The law enforcement officers found traces of blood reportedly belonging to the victim as well as cutting tools in his apartment: The two men also allegedly new each other as they exchanged messages on an online dating platform: However, the suspect, who is said to be a math and chemistry teacher at a private high school, according to the media report, also frequented websites of much more sinister nature:

“ The suspect had an interest in cannibalism,” Berlin prosecutors’ office spokesman Martin Steltner said. “He searched online for the topic.” The suspect remains silent and does not comment on the allegations, he added: The prosecution also refused to provide any further details on this case while saying it was investigating it “at full speed.”

The chilling case is reminiscent of another murder, which saw a former computer repair technician, Armin Meiwes, killing and eating his victim in 2001: One of the most unnerving details of the murder was that Meiwes, who currently serves life sentence in prison, claimed that his victim himself fantasized about being eaten:

NYC: A gang member accused of #killing one of Gov. Cuomo’s top aides targeted the city Department of Correction commissioner with a bogus excessive-force claim — and it took the jails boss weeks to cl ear his name, The Post has learned – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Dec.27: Tyshawn Crawford, who was being held at Rikers Island in the 2015 #killing, took an opportunity to mess with Commissioner Joseph Ponte when Ponte toured the jail on Dec.02: New York Post reported on Tuesday ….

Crawford, 21, threw a fit when Ponte’s security detail ordered him to step back to let the commish pass.

He shouted at the officers, then challenged Ponte to a fight.

Ponte walked past Crawford without even looking at him.

Still, Crawford — one of four gangbangers charged in the #shooting death of senior Cuomo adviser Carey Gabay at last year’s J’Ouvert festivities in Brooklyn — filed a complaint alleging that Ponte grabbed his forearm.

Correction investigators launched a probe.

Fortunately for Ponte, the department recently increased its use of video surveillance at Rikers, and the incident was caught on tape.

Footage of the incident showed a person grabbing Crawford’s arm, but it was another inmate who was trying to calm him down, a source said.

“The video proves the claim is unfounded,” said department spokesman Peter Thorne.

A department source called Crawford a “liar who should spend the rest of his life behind bars.”

“He’s a classic piece of s- -t who allegedly #killed a talented and prominent man in the community, and now he tried to take down a commissioner,” the source said.

Gabay, 43, was struck in the head by a stray bullet after he and his brother got caught in the middle of a gang #shootout during the J’Ouvert festivities in Crown Heights on Sept. 7, 2015. He died nine days later.

The Harvard-educated lawyer, who lived in Clinton Hill, was a first deputy counsel for Cuomo’s Empire State Development Corp.

Crawford refused a request for an interview. His lawyer, Daniel Lynch, declined to comment – http://nyp.st/2iaB7jO

CHATTANOOGA: Court Report: School bus that crashed last month, #killing six elementary students just days before Thanksgiving, was going approximately 20 miles over the speed limit at the time, a #police officer testified Thursday – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Dec.15: Chattanooga Police Officer Joe Warren testified during a 90-minute hearing about the investigation that led to the arrest of the driver, Johnthony Walker.

He said #police estimated the bus’ speed at the time at between 48 and 52 mph. The speed limit on the road was 30 mph. Warren also revealed in his testimony that there were three video cameras that recorded the inside of the bus.

“The videos are very disturbing and I don’t want to describe a whole lot,” said the 21-year department veteran, who estimated he’d investigated hundreds of deadly wrecks.

The videos showed Walker using his cellphone while children were on the bus while it was parked, Warren testified. He said police are sifting through 1,400 pages of Walker’s cellphone records for more information.

After the hearing, Hamilton County General Sessions Judge Lila Statom found there was enough probable cause to send the case to a grand jury. Statom, a judge since 2012, grew up in Chattanooga and is a former prosecutor, according to the state courts office.

Walker, 24, was initially charged by police with five counts of vehicular homicide, reckless endangerment and reckless driving. The grand jury can change those counts, add others or decline to bring an indictment against Walker.

About a dozen family members of the victims attended the hearing. One woman sobbed as Warren described the speed of the bus, which federal investigators had previously said was not on its designated route at the time.

Walker remains in custody and is represented by attorney Amanda B. Dunn, who argued Thursday that there were different accounts of how fast the bus was going at the time.

“There’s a whole lot that we don’t know at this time,” she said.

In questioning with Dunn, Warren confirmed that Walker helped at least two students off the bus after the crash.

The deadly crash rocked Chattanooga, but nowhere so much as the city’s working-class Brainerd neighborhood, where the families of the elementary students were left to grieve their loved ones’ deaths.

Six children died: 10-year-old Zyanna Janal Harris, 9-year-old Cor’Dayja Jones, 9-year-old Zoie Nash, 8-year-old Keontae Wilson, 6-year-old D’Myunn Brown and 6-year-old Zyaira Mateen. More than 20 of the 37 students on the bus at the time were injured.

Police said at the time Walker was driving at a high rate of speed on a winding, 30 mph road when the bus rolled, slammed into a utility pole and wrapped around a tree.

Warren testified Thursday that the first witnesses on the scene found the bus’ wheels still spinning.

As the city mourned, it came to light that students had complained about Walker’s reckless driving before, and the private company he worked for, Durham School Services, based in Warrenville, Ill., had a history of crashes in Tennessee.

Family members of the crash victims have filed several negligence lawsuits against the company, and more are likely.

This story will be updated….

Mair, who had denied murder, chose not to give any evidence in his defence.

Mrs Cox’s husband, Brendan, her parents, Jean and Gordon Leadbeater, and her sister, Kim, were all in court for the verdicts.

Mair, dressed in a dark suit and blue tie, remained impassive as the verdicts were read out, after one hour of deliberations.

Mair was also found guilty of having a firearm with intent, causing grievous bodily harm with intent to 78-year-old Bernard Kenny, who tried to help the MP, and having an offensive weapon, namely a dagger.
