(AMERICA) Gun Violence Report: USA has endured yet another bloody weekend of gun violence, with at least 82 people shot and 13 killed across Chicago, Philadelphia and NYC alone #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.17: Eight of those were gunned down in a single-incident at a housing complex in Brooklyn’s Bedford Stuyvesant neighborhood. That came after three people were shot and killed in New York on Saturday…

#AceDailyNews says a weekend of US gun violence sees at least 82 shot in Chicago, Philly and NYC with Chicago being the worst hit, with at least 52 shootings recorded, and five killed – including a 7-year-old girl – from Friday afternoon to Sunday evening.

A weekend of gun violence in three cities across the country saw sisters Serenity, 7, left, and Aubrey, 6, Broughton shot in Chicago. Serenity would die from her injuries

MailOnline

Philadelphia saw 11 shootings, and five killed as a result, while 16 people were shot in New York City during a single, two-hour period. 

In Chicago, a seven year-old girl sitting in the back of a parked car was one of those killed during the city’s latest orgy of violence, while her six year-old sister suffered a pieced lung after she was also shot. 

The girls were shot at around 2pm on Sunday, just as their parents had buckled them into the family car on a trip to their grandmother's house

The girls’ paternal grandmother, Regina Broughton, identified the sisters at Serenity – who died –  and Aubrey Broughton, who is being treated for serious wounds in hospital following the shooting in the Windy City’s Belmont neighborhood. 

Both suffered multiple gunshot wounds, authorities said, and Serenity died at the hospital from her injuries, while Aubrey had been moved out of the ICU as of Sunday evening, suffering from a pierced lung, CBS2reported. 

Police had responded to the scene at around 2.50pm to reports of rapid gunfire in the area to find the two girls injured in the back of their mother’s parked vehicle. 

Serenity had been shot in the chest and torso, while Aubrey suffered gunshot wounds to her chest and right armpit.

Both were rushed to Loyola University Medical Center, where Serenity was pronounced dead.

Their grandmother, Regina Broughton (pictured) was expecting a visit from her two grandaughters that afternoon. Instead she made a trip to the hospital

The two had been heading out from a visit to their maternal grandmother’s house to visit Regina, who after hearing of the shooting rushed to the hospital to find Serenity had died.  

‘She was getting in a car coming from her grandma’s house, and her life was ended at that moment. I mean, that’s just senseless,’ She told CBS2. ‘

‘And you know, someone should come forth and say something. Someone should come forth and help the family, and help us – because it didn’t have to happen to her. It shouldn’t have happened to her. She was innocent. She was 7. Her birthday was coming up in November.’

Serenity was due to take a plane trip with her grandmother to South Carolina on Tuesday

As of Sunday, she said, Aubrey did not know her sister had died.

Both parents were on the scene, Regina said, and her son was on the driver’s side of the car. Their mother had just finished buckling Aubrey into the back seat. 

‘The other sister was already in her car seat buttoned up, and my son said he grabbed her – and she was just lifeless,’ the grandmother recounted. 

Regina noted that she was due to take a plane trip with the girls to South Carolina on Tuesday for a visit to Myrtle Beach. It would have been Serenity’s first trip on a plane, she said.   

‘How do you prepare yourself for something like this?’ she said. ‘She was a beautiful child. Her spirit was beautiful. Everything about her was innocent.’

Chicago Police Chief of Patrol Brian McDermott said the girls were not believed to be the intended target, and that the investigation into their death was ongoing.   

‘To say that I am sad and outraged would be an understatement. I can only hope that every resident of the city is as angry, saddened, and outraged as I am at this time,’ he said during a news conference Sunday evening. 

‘Too many young people have lost their lives to senseless gun violence in the city of Chicago.’ 

The Chicago shooting came as the city was rocked by gun violence this weekend, with 52 shootings recording and five killed

The weekend carnage in the city began at 5.15pm on Friday, when 18-year-old Nikko Mercado was killed in a drive-by shooting, CBS2 also reported.

Then, at 8.34pm on Friday a 17-year-old boy was killed and two others badly injured in a shooting on the Eisenhower Expressway. 

At 12.40pm, Saturday  a 59-year-old man was shot multiple times and killed while driving in the West Humboldt Park section of the city.

At 8.15pm Saturday a 26-year-old man was shot in the torso while walking down the sidewalk in the Hyde Park neighborhood of the city. He was rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

At 1.59am Sunday, a 33 and 34-year-old man were standing in a group in the Grand Crossing neighborhood in the city when both were shot. The 33 year old was hit in the chest and later pronounced dead. 

The gun slayings come as, more than 2,123 people had been recorded shot in Chicago before this weekend, a 12 percent increase from the same period last year, according to ABC News. 

In Philadelphia, a string of separate shootings saw five people killed and 11 injured.

In New York, the city saw three gun homicides in a four hour span on Saturday, and a shooting spree on Sunday that injured 16 in the span of about 90 minutes.

New York City also saw its share of gun violence. Police are pictured at the scene of a party shooting in Brooklyn at 12.30am Monday, when eight people were shot and injured

The killing started at 12.20am Saturday, when a man was found lying next to a motorcycle with a bullet wound to the head in the Bronx. He was pronounced dead on the scene. 

Then, at around 1am, a 38-year-old man was shot in Queens, and was rushed to a hospital where he too was pronounced dead.

Finally at 4 am a 27-year-old man was shot and killed while standing on the street in the Bronx. Alongside him was a 23-year-old man who was wounded.

On Sunday, a quick series of shootings began at around 11pm, Pix 11 reported, when three men in their 20s were shot on a street corner in Queens. 

Then, a half hour later, a 32-year-old man in Brooklyn was shot in the leg. 

In another shooting at 12.25am Monday, eight people were shot and injured at a large party in Brooklyn. The victims ranged in aged from 18 to 27, and one was reportedly struck in the face and left in critical condition. 

Just five minutes later, another man was shot in the head in Queens and was also left in critical condition.

Finally, at 12.35am three teenagers were shot and wounded while sitting in an SUV in Brooklyn. The driver, 18, was shot in the head and he was taken to a hospital in critical condition. 

No arrests have so far been made in the shootings, an they came as 1,109 people have been shot in the city in 2021, a 10.9 percent increase over the same period last year.

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) JW REPORT: Announces recently filed a ‘federal civil rights’ lawsuit on behalf of Palatine Illinois for ‘High School Teacher’ fired for Facebook Posts criticising Chicago riots and looting in aftermath of George Floyd killing #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.30: Judicial Watch announced today that it has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit on behalf of Palatine, Illinois tenured high school teacher Jeanne Hedgepeth, who was fired by the suburban-Chicago school district where she had worked for 20 years after posting comments on Facebook criticizing the riots, violence, and shootings in Chicago in the aftermath of the May 25, 2020, killing of George Floyd.

Judicial Watch Report: Files Civil Rights Lawsuit for High School Teacher Fired for Facebook Posts Criticising Chicago Riots, Looting, and Violence in the Aftermath of George Floyd Killing

JW REPORT:

Hedgepeth made the posts on her personal Facebook page while vacationing after the end of the school year, just as some of the most severe violence was occurring: In her posts, Hedgepeth recommended studying Thomas Sowell, whom she described as a “treasure” and a “truth seeker,” and praised political commentator and activist Candice Owens and talk show host Larry Elder. She alleges that the firing violated her First Amendment rights.

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, seeks damages from the school district, Township High School District 211, and district board members and officials who participated directly in the firing (Hedgepeth v. Britton et al. (Case No. 1:21-cv-03890)).

The lawsuit explains:

In late May and early June 2020, Hedgepeth was vacationing in Florida after the end of the 2019-20 school year when violent street protests, rioting, looting, and shootings erupted in Chicago and many other U.S. cities in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd on May 25, 2020 by Minneapolis police officers. In Chicago alone, 82 persons were shot, 19 fatally, over the May 30-31, 2020 weekend. On May 31, 2020, which the Chicago Sun Times described as the most violent day Chicago had seen in 60 years, Mayor Lori Lightfoot asked Governor J.B. Pritzker to deploy the Illinois National Guard in the city.  

That same day, May 31, 2020, Hedgepeth posted the following photos of herself on the beach in Florida along with the comment, “I don’t want to go home tomorrow. Now that the civil war has begun I want to move.”

An individual responded, “Follow your gut! Move!!!!!!!!!”  Hedgepeth answered, “I need a gun and training.” The individual replied, “me too!”

Another individual posted a meme that same day suggesting that the riots could be stopped with a septic tank truck and a pressure cannon. Hedgepeth reposted the meme, obviously in jest, adding, “You think this would work?”

On or about June 1, 2020, Hedgepeth posted the following comment on Facebook in the course of an exchange of posts begun the previous day with a third individual: 

I am about facts, truth seeking and love. I will speak on any topic I choose because I live in a free country. I find the term “white privilege” as racist as the “N” word. You have not walked in my shoes either so do not make assumptions about me and my so called privilege. You think America is racist? Then you have been hoodwinked by the white liberal establishment and race baiters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.  Travel the world and go see that every nation has racism and some more than others but few make efforts such as we do to mitigate or eliminate it. I have lived and seen. The people I am informed by about the black experience in America are actually some of the smartest people in America.  And it so happens they are black. I highly recommend studying Thomas Sowell, who is now retired and in his 80’s. A treasure. A truth seeker. [D]oes REAL research and analysis. Candice Owens is one of the smartest and most courageous women in America and Larry Elders speaks the truth with a great sense of humor and FACTS not feelings. They are who I listen to when it comes to facts about the black experience in America.  Don’t you think there is a deeper problem than racism when 50% of murders in America are committed by 13% of the population? Do you think there might be a subtle genocide of black babies when most planned parenthoods are put in poor neighborhoods and that 30% of abortions are black babies. [B]lack women only make up 7% of the U.S. population. The greatest power you have is what you believe about yourself. [W]hat have Democrats, mainstream media and intellectuals in ivory towers been telling the black community to believe about themselves for forty years? Wake up and stop believing them, then things will change.

All of Hedgepeth’s posts were on her personal Facebook page. None of Hedgepeth’s posts identified her as a teacher or a District 211 employee, nor did Hedgepeth post them in her capacity as a teacher or a District 211 employee. None of the persons with whom Hedgepeth exchanged Facebook posts were current District 211 or Palatine High School teachers, staff, or students.

Upon returning from her vacation in early June 2020, Hedgepeth learned that the school district was investigating her for her Facebook posts. She was fired by the school board six weeks later, on July 16, 2020, by a vote of 5-2. In her defense, Hedgepeth noted that the posts were on her personal Facebook page and were made “out of school.” She also expressly invoked her First Amendment rights.

“The school district took what could have been a teachable moment about respecting diversity of viewpoints and turned it into a clear civil rights violation,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Jeanne Hedgepeth had every right to express herself freely and openly on her personal Facebook page, outside of school, about matters of undeniable public concern. Firing her for opposing lawlessness, speaking out about gun rights, praising black conservatives, and criticizing Democrats and tenets of Critical Racial Theory violated the First Amendment, and the school district and district officials who did so will be held accountable.”

Judicial Watch is being assisted by attorney Christine Svenson of Palatine, Illinois.

(CALIFORNIA) LATEST: A suspect in a domestic violence disturbance fatally shot a Calif. cop while saying “Hey police” as he opened his front door, graphic video below shows #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.27: A suspect in a domestic violence disturbance fatally shot a California cop while saying “Hey police” as he opened his front door, graphic video shows.

California cop killed responding to domestic disturbance AND both Officer Lowe and Jimmy Inn were pronounced dead in the hospital

Fox News Flash top headlines for June 24

*WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT*

The footage, released Tuesday by the Stockton Police Department,shows the instant Lance Lowe, 30, shot Officer Jimmy Inn as the cop responded to a residence on May 11 for a report of a domestic disturbance. A caller told police a woman was bleeding and appeared to have been assaulted, Chief Eric Jones said.

Police,” Inn says while knocking on a metal screen door at the home, the clip shows.

Seconds later, as screaming can be heard in the background, Lowe emerges from the doorway and opens fire on Inn, striking the officer multiple times, Jones said.

“Hey police,” Lowe says while opening the door, just before firing at the officer.

Inn immediately falls to the ground and wails in pain, the shocking footage shows. A second officer, Pancho Freer, later arrives on the scene, where he saw Lowe standing over Inn, and then opening fire in his direction.

Freer returns fire from inside his police cruiser while telling a dispatcher that his partner had been shot.

“Jimmy, you all right?” Freer asks, but got no response. “Shot fired, my partner is down … Jimmy, stay with me! Jimmy?!”

Freer then tells Lowe, who briefly went back inside, to “let the kid go” as he held his 8-year-old son in the front yard. Lowe then started to strangle the boy while refusing to comply with Freer’s commands, according to the footage.

“Don’t do it!” Freer tells Lowe. “Let the kid go, man. I don’t want to kill you.”

As Freer held Lowe at gunpoint, another man at the scene tackles the suspect, freeing his son.

Freer then fired multiple times, striking Lowe, who was later pronounced dead at a hospital, along with Inn, Jones said in a video statement.

“As difficult as it may be to see and hear for many of us, we believe the release of this information is part of our principles of transparency,” Jones said of the “traumatic” police-involved shooting.

The woman, whom witnesses said had been assaulted, fled the scene before cops arrived, but spoke to investigators days later, Jones said.

The chaotic footage ends as Freer shot Lowe several times as he was on the ground. Another man nearby says “Hey, watch,” as he narrowly got out of the way, the clip shows.

Cops found a gun inside Lowe’s home following the shooting. The 8-year-old boy, meanwhile, was medically cleared and released to his mother’s custody, Jones said.

Law enforcement officers from across California attended Inn’s funeral on May 19, CBS Sacramento reported. The father of three and five-year department vet was married to a fellow Stockton police officer, according to the station.

“These men and woman are putting their lives on the line, sacrificing themselves potentially each and every day for people whom they’ve never met before and that was the case for Jimmy Inn,” Jones said at the service.

(WHITEHOUSE) Press Briefing Report: Today, the Biden-Harris Administration is announcing six initial actions to address the gun violence public health epidemic #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.09: The recent high-profile mass shootings in Boulder – taking the lives of 10 individuals – and Atlanta – taking the lives of eight individuals, including six Asian American women – underscored the relentlessness of this epidemic.

FACT SHEET: ‘Gun violence takes lives and leaves a lasting legacy of trauma in communities every single day in this country, even when it is not on the nightly news. In fact, cities across the country are in the midst of a historic spike in homicides, violence that disproportionately impacts Black and brown Americans’

Read more about these agency actions here.

April 07, 2021

The President is committed to taking action to reduce all forms of gun violence – community violence, mass shootings, domestic violence, and suicide by firearm.

President Biden is reiterating his call for Congress to pass legislation to reduce gun violence. Last month, a bipartisan coalition in the House passed two bills to close loopholes in the gun background check system. Congress should close those loopholes and go further, including by closing “boyfriend” and stalking loopholes that currently allow people found by the courts to be abusers to possess firearms, banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines, repealing gun manufacturers’ immunity from liability, and investing in evidence-based community violence interventions. Congress should also pass an appropriate national “red flag” law, as well as legislation incentivizing states to pass “red flag” laws of their own.

But this Administration will not wait for Congress to act to take its own steps – fully within the Administration’s authority and the Second Amendment – to save lives. Today, the Administration is announcing the following six initial actions:

The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.” We are experiencing a growing problem: criminals are buying kits containing nearly all of the components and directions for finishing a firearm within as little as 30 minutes and using these firearms to commit crimes. When these firearms turn up at crime scenes, they often cannot be traced by law enforcement due to the lack of a serial number. The Justice Department will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of these firearms.

The Justice Department, within 60 days, will issue a proposed rule to make clear when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turns a pistol into a short-barreled rifle subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act. The alleged shooter in the Boulder tragedy last month appears to have used a pistol with an arm brace, which can make a firearm more stable and accurate while still being concealable.

The Justice Department, within 60 days, will publish model “red flag” legislation for states. Red flag laws allow family members or law enforcement to petition for a court order temporarily barring people in crisis from accessing firearms if they present a danger to themselves or others. The President urges Congress to pass an appropriate national “red flag” law, as well as legislation incentivizing states to pass “red flag” laws of their own. In the interim, the Justice Department’s published model legislation will make it easier for states that want to adopt red flag laws to do so.

The Administration is investing in evidence-based community violence interventions. Community violence interventions are proven strategies for reducing gun violence in urban communities through tools other than incarceration. Because cities across the country are experiencing a historic spike in homicides, the Biden-Harris Administration is taking a number of steps to prioritize investment in community violence interventions.

  • The American Jobs Plan proposes a $5 billion investment over eight years to support community violence intervention programs. A key part of community violence intervention strategies is to help connect individuals to job training and job opportunities.
  • The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is organizing a webinar and toolkit to educate states on how they can use Medicaid to reimburse certain community violence intervention programs, like Hospital-Based Violence Interventions.
  • Five federal agencies are making changes to 26 different programs to direct vital support to community violence intervention programs as quickly as possible. These changes mean we can start increasing investments in community violence interventions as we wait on Congress to appropriate additional funds.

The Justice Department will issue an annual report on firearms trafficking. In 2000, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) issued a report summarizing information regarding its investigations into firearms trafficking, which is one way firearms are diverted into the illegal market where they can easily end up in the hands of dangerous individuals. Since the report’s publication, states, local, and federal policymakers have relied on its data to better thwart the common channels of firearms trafficking. But there is good reason to believe that firearms trafficking channels have changed since 2000, for example due to the emergence of online sales and proliferation of “ghost guns.” The Justice Department will issue a new, comprehensive report on firearms trafficking and annual updates necessary to give policymakers the information they need to help address firearms trafficking today.

The President will nominate David Chipman to serve as Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. ATF is the key agency enforcing our gun laws, and it needs a confirmed director in order to do the job to the best of its ability. But ATF has not had a confirmed director since 2015. Chipman served at ATF for 25 years and now works to advance commonsense gun safety laws.

(BRISTOL, U.K.) JUST IN: Avon & Somerset Police Report: Multiple arrests were made following violent disorder in city centre overnight during protests over the new policing bill as they pelted the officers with bottles and eggs #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.27: Specialist protest liaison officers attempted to engage with those who had gathered to remind them of the current coronavirus restrictions and urge them to go home.

Arrests made following violent disorder in Bristol: ‘More than 1,000 people gathered at College Green from 4pm for a protest’ However, at approximately 5pm the crowd began marching through the city centre: At around 6.30pm a significant number of protestors congregated on Lewins Mead, in front of a police cordon:

Posted at 03:43 on 27th March 2021:

Officers were instructed to use protective clothing after ammonia was smelt in the crowd: Shortly after 10pm officers moved to disperse people as items, including eggs and glass bottles, began to be thrown at them and attempts were made to pull their shields:

Mutual aid from neighbouring forces was brought in to ensure the crowds were dispersed as safely as possible: Specialist resources including dogs, horses and the police helicopter were used in the policing operation which concluded at approximately 1am.

A total of 10 people of were arrested: One has since been issued a fixed penalty notice while the other nine remain in police custody:

Superintendent Mark Runacres said: “The majority of people acted peacefully however there was a minority who once again showed hostility to officers: “ Items, including glass bottles and bricks were thrown at officers, fireworks were launched at our mounted section while one of our horses was also covered with paint: “ This violent conduct is not acceptable: “ Officers repeatedly encouraged people to disperse but once the atmosphere changed and people became physical it was necessary to take action: “ Ten people were arrested for offences including violent disorder, assaulting an emergency worker and possession of Class A drugs: “ Three of those arrested were also detained in connection with the violent disorder which took place in Bristol on Sunday.”

Supt Runacres added: “All the officers policing the incident are specially trained and accredited in public order and showed exceptional patience in the face of a significant disorder: “ At times reasonable force had to be used – this is not something we ever want to do but we have a duty to uphold the law, prevent crime, and protect people and property.”

(COVENTRY, U.K.) Crown Court Report: Two dangerous men convicted today Mon.09: November for killing and dismembering a Dudley woman in 2019 and also found guilty of 4-rapes, attempted rape and threaten to kill #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.09: Nathan Maynard-Ellis, 30, and his boyfriend, 25-year-old David Leesley, were found guilty at Coventry Crown Court for killing and dismembering Julia Rawson: Maynard-Ellis was also found guilty of four rapes, an attempted rape and a threat to kill:

By chance on 11 May 2019, Julia Rawson met Nathan Maynard-Ellis when she took the wrong bus home and ended up at the Bottle and Cork Public House, New Mill Street in Dudley. They chatted and she went back to his flat in Mission Drive, Tipton, by taxi. At the apartment, Maynard-Ellis and Leesley killed Miss Rawson, dismembered her body and disposed of her remains in black bags in land adjacent to a nearby canal: Later, Julia Rawson was reported missing, police discovered her body parts five weeks later. Police traced her last steps to the defendants’ flat. Forensic evidence placed Julia Rawson at the flat, and both men were arrested for her murder.

During the police investigation, an ex-partner of Maynard-Ellis came forward to reveal that she had been raped and sexually assaulted by him many years ago; and he threatened to kill her: The account she gave provided striking similarities in details discovered by the police surrounding the murder, dismemberment and disposal of Julia Rawson, which included a link in time between the date of the break-up of their relationship and her death:

James L Francis of the CPS said: “The details that led to Julia Rawson’s death remain unknown, but the facts support the Crown’s case that Nathan Maynard-Ellis and David Leesley are extremely dangerous individuals and were responsible for her death. They lied many times throughout the investigation to avoid detection for the allegation of murder, but we were able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that both Maynard-Ellis and Leesley murdered Julia Rawson, their conviction will protect others from future harm. I want to pay tribute to the surviving victim in this case for the strength and determination that she has shown to ensure justice was served for her and Julia Rawson. Thanks to her bravery, others will now be protected from these dangerous men.”

CASE NOTES:

While only the defendants know precisely what transpired in that flat on 12 May 2019, forensic evidence supported the prosecution case that Julia Rawson had been murdered in that flat and both men had tried to hide the crime: At the onset of the investigation, police discovered that the defendants’ had removed furniture and replaced sections of the living room carpet. However, washed traces of Julia Rawson’s blood were found on the floor under the new underlay and carpet. When the sofa in the living room was examined, they found staining along one edge of a cushion with blood that had come from Julia Rawson: The defendants also disposed of their clothing in a garden incinerator at the home of Maynard-Ellis’ mother. Blood from Julia Rawson was found on a pair of burnt grey fleece shorts:

The CPS was able to prove the case as a result of the presence of multiple strands of evidence that included details provided by a complaint made by an ex-partner of Maynard-Ellis, CCTV footage showing the movements of the victim and Maynard-Ellis, scientific evidence proving the presence of the victim’s blood on floorboards inside the defendants’ flat, expert evidence detailing the examination of the dismembered remains of the victim and admissions made by Maynard-Ellis and lies told by Leesley:

(WARWICK, U.K) Court Report: A man who ‘ impriosned & raped a woman ‘ over a person of 32-hours has been convicted of 10-counts of ‘ rape & false imprisonment ‘ on Friday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.09: On 6 November 2020 at Warwick Crown Court, a jury found that Chukwudi Bright Olowo, 30,  who had previously been found by a judge to be mentally ‘unfit to plead’, had committed the acts, in a prosecution relating to 10 counts of rape and one count of false imprisonment: The victim attended Olowo’s home but soon realised she did not wish to remain in the property: She attempted to leave but was falsely imprisoned by Olowo who subjected her to an ordeal lasting thirty-two hours during which he raped her numerous times:

The victim had been reported missing by her family as her absence was out of character: While officers were trying to locate the victim, they spoke to a takeaway delivery driver who told officers he had delivered food to Olowo’s address several days earlier and had the door slammed in his face by the occupant after delivering the food and before being paid: Officers accompanied the driver to the door of the address in question and when the door was opened, the victim took her chance to flee and told officers what happened. Olowo was found hiding in a cupboard by police: Olowo denied rape and false imprisonment but was found to have committed the acts. He will be sentenced on 20 November 2020:

Tamina Greaves of the CPS said: “I would like to express my gratitude to the victim for her incredible bravery and courage in helping us bring the defendant to justice. She was the victim of what can only be described as a harrowing experience, which has unsurprisingly had a devastating impact on her life. The defendant is undoubtedly an extremely dangerous individual who poses a serious risk to women, and this finding is the first step in ensuring justice for the victim.”

(TEESSIDE, U.K.) Crown Court Report: Two men who were involved in an altercation with a Yarm man in the hours before his death have been sentenced today #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.30: Edwin Taha, 20, of Lavender Way, Norton and Ali Abdulmajieed, 19, of Corvus Drive, Stockton were each sentenced for a charge of affray in relation to an attack on Luke Jobson, whose body was discovered in the river Tees in January of last year. All of the men had been out in Yarm High Street in the early hours of Saturday 26 January when an argument broke out between Luke and another man, who was an associate of Taha and Abdulmajieed:

After a failed pursuit of Luke on foot the pair then returned to a vehicle, which was driven by Abdulmajieed, leading to a further altercation at Yarm School during which Taha sprayed a substance in Luke’s eyes from a bottle he was carrying. The men then drove away leaving Luke Jobson in the grounds of Yarm School, where he was captured on CCTV entering a boathouse some time later. Tragically, Luke’s body was recovered from the River Tees near to the school around 48 hours after these events: Taha was also sentenced for five further charges in relation to the possession and supply of cocaine, MDMA and ketamine.

Chris Atkinson of CPS North East said: “While Taha and Abdulmajieed have been sentenced today for these charges our thoughts remain with the family of Luke Jobson, for whom this will no doubt be a particularly difficult time: ” While we have proved beyond reasonable doubt that both men were involved in an affray with Luke prior to his death, there is absolutely no evidence to suggest any causal link between their actions and the tragic events which occurred after their attack took place.”

(LIVERPOOL) Crown Court Report: A man who was acting as an armourer to criminals and storing the weapons and materials to make explosives at the home of a vulnerable man he claimed to be caring for has been jailed for eight years on Monday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.20: The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said that Michael Green, 31, of Micawber Street in the Toxteth area of Liverpool, had a detailed knowledge of the world of firearms and munitions: He had acquired firearms, ammunition, and items that could be used to construct explosives: Police raids at his home and the home of a vulnerable man in the Liverpool area uncovered rifles, ammunition and materials to make explosives: The raids also revealed equipment that could be used to adapt or engineer weapons, together with books, manuals and diagrams of the same nature: The CPS said that Green was an armourer who had weapons, ammunitions and the  wherewithal to make explosives so that he could provide them to whoever wanted them to commit serious crimes: He pleaded guilty three charges of possession of a firearm and ammunition without a certificate and seven charges of being in possession of an explosive substance: Today (19 October 2020) at Liverpool Crown Court, Michael Green was sentenced to eight years in jail.

On 6 July 2018: Police executed a raid on the home of a vulnerable man in the Liverpool area. They found a whole host of weapons in a wardrobe in a locked room at the flat: Green’s fingerprints were on many of the weapons. Police went on to raid Green’s home in Micawber Close and found equipment and materials to make explosives: The man, who was then 52, told police that the room had been locked and used by Michael Green, who was acting as his carer: Green also used the details of the man to make purchases from Amazon and Paypal of items connected to weapons. One of the giveaways that it was Green buying the items was that he also used the same details to buy personalised items for members of his family.

On 15 July 2018: Green attended at St Anne Street Police Station and was arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm without a certificate and remained silent. He went on to deny the items were his and blamed the vulnerable male but the overwhelming forensic evidence led to him eventually accepting his guilt:

Senior Crown prosecutor Rachael Barber, of CPS Mersey Cheshire, said: “Michael Green had accumulated a wide range of potentially lethal weapons, ammunition and explosives in order to supply the criminal underworld: “He exploited the vulnerability of the man he was supposed to be caring for by storing these dangerous items in his home: ” Guns, ammunition and explosives bring death, destruction and chaos to our communities. They are the tools of the criminals who also bring drugs and other forms of criminality to our streets: ” Green eventually pleaded guilty, but not immediately. He has now been sentenced for his part in the dangerous and deadly world of organised crime.”

AFGHANISTAN: ‘ VIOLENCE CONTINUES WITH TWELVE POLICEMEN KILLED & CIVILIAN CASUALTIES ‘

#AceWorldNews – AFGHANISTAN:Dec.21 – Seven Afghan policemen have been killed at a checkpoint in northern Afghanistan according to an official, which was reported by AP.

Five other policemen were injured, while five militants died. There were also casualties in the Kunar province in the east of the country, with at least three civilians and 28 insurgents being killed.

“There are casualties among civilians who are stuck in the battlefield but we don’t know how many right now,” said Abdul Ghani Musamem, spokesman for the provincial governor.

Meanwhile a 22 year-old cameraman, Zubair Hatami, died from wounds suffered in a suicide earlier this month at a French-run school in Kabul.

LIVE VIDEO: UPDATE: ‘ SIEGE ENDS & GUNMAN IDENTIFIED AS IRANIAN BORN & ON BAIL FOR VIOLENT CRIMES ‘

#AceNewsServices UPDATE: AUSTRALIA:Dec.15 – Sheik Man Haron Monis, an Islamic ‘spiritual healer’ who is facing charges of sexual assault and being an accessory to murder, has been identified as the man who has taken civilians hostage in a Sydney café, according to local media citing police sources.

“There’s no operational reason for that name to be held back by us now,” an anonymous police source told Reuters.

The Iranian-born 50-year-old fled to Australia in 1996, but came to prominence after 2007, when he began sending “hate mail” to families of soldiers, who died while fighting in Iraq.

Despite claiming to be a peace advocate, and even chaining himself to a courthouse, Monis was sentenced to 300 hours of community service last year.

Since then, his charge sheet has included much graver offences.

In December last year, Monis was accused of helping his current partner, Amirah Droudis, to murder his ex-wife, Noleen Hayson Pal. The woman had been stabbed several times and set alight in a Sydney apartment in April 2013.

Monis had been locked in a custody battle with Pal, and prosecutors say he staged a heart attack, car accident and a robbery to create an alibi on the day of the murder.

In April this year, Monis, who was on bail, was re-arrested after multiple reports of sexual abuse emerged.

Between 2000 and 2002, Monis styled himself as an “expert in astrology, numerology, meditation and black magic.” More than 40 women have alleged that he used this as an opportunity to sexually assault vulnerable clients, who came to him for help.

Despite police concerns that Monis could attempt to extract revenge against his accusers, the preacher was once again released prior to his hearing.

Monis, who accumulated more than 14,000 followers on his Facebook page before it was shut down on Monday, accused the government of systematic persecution.

Monis was due to face trial for both sets of charges next year.

On Monday he walked into Lindt cafe in central Sydney, reportedly brandishing a gun. More than a dozen hostages were thought to remain inside, before police began a storm as night fell.

UNITED STATES: ‘ PROTESTS BECOME RIOTS AFTER BLACK & WHITES ON BLACKS BY WHITES ‘

#AceNewsServices – Dec.07 – This is my featured post of riots in parts of the US whereby nothing is achieved by violence, except more people die, get injured and the government tightens restrictions on the people.

‘Starting with two police officers were injured as a California last night in a protest over police killings ‘

Starting with two police officers were injured in California last night in a protest over police killings as it turned violent with protesters smashing windows and throwing rocks and bricks at police, who responded by firing tear gas, authorities it was reported.  

Several officers were struck, but there were just two reports of injury, Berkeley police spokeswoman Jenn Coats said.

A Berkeley police officer received hospital treatment for a dislocated shoulder after being hit with a sandbag, while another sustained minor injuries.

Even as early as this year a protest over the acquittal of two former California police officers in the beating death of a homeless man turned violent Saturday, with 13 arrests and the assault of a TV camerawoman, police said.

Though history repeats its self and time comes all too regularly when groups of youths and down trodden people decide to take the law into their own hands. This has happened all too often and events such as riots in 2013 attest as such.

‘Monday’s acquittal of two former Fullerton officers in the 2011 death of Kelly Thomas ‘

Or may we could back further to these riots in 2011 whereby the protest against Monday’s acquittal of two former Fullerton officers in the 2011 death of Kelly Thomas drew about 200 people, police Sgt. Jeff Stuart said.

He said most of the protesters were peaceful, but some took over intersections, blocked streets and vandalized business.

Video broadcast by KCBS-TV showed one person whose face was partly covered by a bandanna striking the camerawoman. She fled into her news van, and her crew called 911 when a group surrounded the vehicle, Stuart said. 

' Protests over BART shooting turn violent '

‘ Protests over BART shooting turn violent ‘

Or this protest in 2009 over the fatal shooting by a BART police officer of an unarmed man mushroomed into several hours of violence Wednesday night as demonstrators smashed storefronts and cars, set several cars ablaze and blocked streets in downtown Oakland.

The roving mob expressed fury at police and frustration over society’s racial injustice. Yet the demonstrators were often indiscriminate, frequently targeting the businesses and prized possessions of people of color.

They smashed a hair salon, a pharmacy and several restaurants. Police in riot gear tried to control the crowd, but some people retreated along 14th Street and bashed cars along the way.

The mob smashed the windows at Creative African Braids on 14th Street, and a woman walked out of the shop holding a baby in her arms.

“This is our business,” shouted Leemu Topka, the black owner of the salon she started four years ago. “This is our shop. This is what you call a protest?”

Wednesday night’s vandalism victims had nothing to do with the shooting death by a BART police officer of Oscar Grant on New Year’s Day – but that did little to sway the mob.

All these riots took place in parts of the US and they were all racially led, black and whites on blacks by whites, if you get my drift.

‘ OFFICER DARREN WILSON RELEASED, VIOLENCE ERUPTS, FAMILY BLASTS PROSECUTORS’

#AceNewsServices – FERGUSON – Nov.25 – I started today with a post about a police officer not being indicted for killing Michael Brown. l decided to finish with this small post related to how the family of Michael Brown feel and how the US government is handling the situation.    

Missouri’s governor ordered more National Guardsmen into Ferguson on Tuesday to keep order after a night of violence over the grand jury decision in the police shooting of Michael Brown, as attorneys for the Brown family blasted the authorities’ handling of the case AP reported. 

Smoke billowed from burned-out Ferguson businesses on Tuesday and glass littered the side-walks from display windows that were smashed during the protests that erupted after it was announced that police Officer Darren Wilson wouldn’t be indicted for killing Brown on Aug. 9.

Monday night’s protests were far more destructive than any of those that followed Brown’s death, with more than a dozen businesses badly damaged or destroyed.

Authorities reported hearing hundreds of gunshots, which for a time prevented fire crews from fighting the flames.

There were 61 arrests in Ferguson overnight, many for burglary and trespassing, St. Louis County Police spokesman Brian Schellman said.

There were 21 arrests in St. Louis, where protesters broke some store windows along South Grand Avenue, St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay said.

Governor Jay Nixon issued a statement saying he was calling in more National Guard troops to assist law enforcement in Ferguson, but he didn’t say how many additional troops or how long they would remain.

Jon Belmar, chief of the St. Louis County police, said that unless his agency could bring in 10,000 officers, “I don’t think we can prevent folks who really are intent on destroying a community.” 

The grand jury’s decision means that Wilson, who is white, will not face any state criminal charges for killing Brown, who was black and unarmed.

Brown’s death inflamed deep racial tensions between many black Americans and police.

Attorney Benjamin Crump said at a news conference Tuesday that he and the rest of the Brown family’s legal team objected to St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch’s decision to call a grand jury and to not appoint a special prosecutor.

“We could see what the outcome was going to be, and that is what occurred last night,” Crump said.

Wilson’s lawyers issued a statement praising the decision and saying the officer, who has remained out of the public eye since the shooting, is grateful to his supporters.

“Law enforcement personnel must frequently make split-second and difficult decisions,” the lawyers wrote. “Officer Wilson followed his training and followed the law.”

UNITED NATIONS: ‘ CONGO VIOLENCE INCREASES FORCING 71,000 PEOPLE TO FLEE THEIR HOMES ‘

#AceWorldNews – CONGO – Nov.22 – Widespread violence has forced more than 71,000 people to flee their homes in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s Katanga region in the past three months alone, the UN said Tuesday.

The UN refugee agency is“deeply concerned about the catastrophic humanitarian situation” there, AFP said.

Violence has uprooted about 400,000 people since 2012, and the total number of internally displaced people is nearing 600,000, UNHCR said.

The violence is mainly attributed to the Mai Mai rebel group.

It is fighting for a better distribution between the north and south of the wealth from the province’s natural resources.

‘ ACTIVISTS MISLEAD PROTESTERS TO BREAK-IN TO OFFICES WITH FALSE INFORMATION ‘

#AceWorldNews – HONG KONG – Nov.19 – A small group of protesters in Hong Kong clashed with police early Wednesday, while trying to break into the city’s legislature.

Police arrested six people in the clashes that came hours after authorities enforced a court order to clear some barricades, AP reported.

The activists used metal barricades and concrete slabs to smash glass doors at the legislature before police used pepper spray and batons.

Another group involved in organizing the protests, Occupy Central, said that those responsible for the violence misled the crowd into attacking the legislature by spreading “false information.”

Lawmakers are also worried the incident would provide an excuse for pro-establishment lawmakers to push through a proposal to build a three-metre high metal fence outside the Legco complex SCMP reported. 

“The violent acts have violated the principle of peace and non-violence underlying the umbrella movement,” Civic Party leader Alan Leong Kah-kit said.

“We feel the [break-in] will have a negative impact on the movement. We’re heartbroken.”

“For instance, while enumerating the violations of human-rights the resolution does not make any mentioning of violence on the part of paramilitaries that was described in the report in detail – mass executions, abductions of women and children, sexual violence, the use of children soldiers, mortar shelling of densely populated areas, as well as the terrorist acts committed by the groupings making up the Syrian Free Army and closely linked to the Islamic Front,” the ministry said.

`Moscow court sentences eight people to trial over mass disorder during rally in Russian Capital’

#AceWorldNews says the Zamoskoretsky District court in Moscow on Monday started announcing the sentence to eight people in the trial over mass disorder during a rally in the Russian capital on May 6, 2012.

On February 21, they were found guilty of mass riots and attacks on police officers during street violence. Four people in the case were released late last year under amnesty, which could not be applied for the rest as they had been charged with attacking police officers.

” Venezuelan Offices of the `Opposition Party Popular Will’ have been raided to arrest their Founder ”

#AceWorldNews says Venezuelan military intelligence officers are reported to have raided the headquarters of the country’s opposition party, Popular Will.

Several of the party’s officials alleged armed officers arrived at the office, threw tear gas, and attempted to remove several individuals from the premises.

“The intelligence officers arrived and began to harass us,” said party activist Adriangela Ruiz. Security camera footage provided by Popular Will, which has not been independently verified, showed officers entering the party’s offices armed with guns.

Venezuela’s government has issued an arrest warrant for Leopoldo Lopez, Popular Will’s founder, who has been accused by the Maduro administration of inciting violence and acts of terrorism.
