A California inmate confessed in a letter to a newspaper that he beat two pedophiles to death with a cane just hours after his urgent warning to a counselor that he might become violent was ignored.

Jonathan Watson, 41, confessed in the letter to the Bay Area News Group in Northern California that he clubbed both men in the head on January 16 at the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison in Corcoran.

Prisoner David Bobb, 48, died that day. Graham De Luis-Conti, 62, died three days later at a hospital. Both were serving life sentences for aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14.

Dr Gowun Park, 41, was charged with first-degree murder and first-degree kidnapping in the death of her husband, Sung Nam, also 41, West Des Moines police said.

Park, was formally accused of killing her husband, Sung Woo Nam, in their West Des Moines home. She faces charges of first-degree murder and first-degree kidnapping in Nam’s death.

Students learned about the arrests Wednesday from the campus newspaper and an email message from Simpson interim President Bob Lane.

Simpson junior Thomas Mussig, an economics major who had Park as an academic adviser, said his classmates were making jokes about Park’s arrest, but he was near tears when he learned about it.

“She was one of the sweetest ladies I’ve ever known,” he said. “This is really tough.”

Mussig said he has had five classes with Park and worked with her on a research project. In all that time, Park never mentioned she was married: She would repeatedly say she was single and that all of her family was in South Korea.

“I had her in class for three years; she was saying that for three years,” he said. “She would talk about how she’s single.”

A THIRTY-SIX-YEAR-OLD Ohio woman who’s parents still pay her cell bill is facing a fourth-degree felony charge after repeatedly calling 911 to report that her parents had shut off her cell phone plan.

According to court documents, Khetarpal was ‘belligerent’ and insisted that it was a legitimate reason to call 911.

She was arrested around 8.40pm and charged with disrupting public services.

A Kentucky man picked the wrong Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers to rob. Surveillance video shows two off-duty police officers (who are married and were out on a date)eating at the restaurant in Louisville when a man showed a gun and demanded cash from an employee. The officers left their booth, drew their guns and chased the suspect out of the restaurant. He had dropped his gun before he ran away and was taken into custody outside Cane’s.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — A 25-year-old Port Richmond man may be his own worst enemy after he allegedly walked into a bank, screamed “this is a robbery” and posted video of the incident to Instagram. District Attorney Michael E. McMahon upgraded charges to include attempted robbery for Augustin Nadreau, 25, of the 100 block of Treadwell Avenue, in connection with the bizarre incidents that happened minutes apart last Thursday afternoon in West Brighton at Northfield Bank and Victory State Bank.

The new charges affected the status of a case where Nadreau allegedly threatened in 2018 to bomb a bank if he didn’t receive $1 million in cash. Last Thursday, Nadreau entered the Northfield bank at 519 Forest Ave. at 1:24 p.m., according to the criminal complaint and police. “This is a mother f—–g robbery,” Nadreau said before leaving without any loot, according to the complaint. Nadreau then went to Victory State Bank at 755 Forest Ave. at about 1:28 p.m. He spoke to a teller and then walked away while allegedly screaming, “This is a mother f—–g robbery. Everyone put your hands on the floor.” The suspect left Victory without stealing anything, police said. Nadreau apparently took a selfie during the Victory incident and posted the video on his own Instagram page.

Police in Florida have arrested a man accused of punching another customer in the Chick-fil-A drive-thru.

According to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, it happened at the restaurant on Airport-Pulling Road in North Naples.

The victim says he had just picked up his food at the drive-thru window but was unable to drive away due to another vehicle blocking the path. The victim honked his horn, and the other driver responded with a hand gesture. After a second honk, the other driver, later identified as 62-year-old Thomas Moran Anderson, walked towards the victim’s vehicle and punched the driver through the open window.

A passenger in that vehicle confronted Anderson, who got back in his vehicle and drove away. The passenger photographed Anderson’s license plate and provided it to deputies, who identified Anderson as the owner.

After the victim positively identified Anderson in a photo lineup, he was arrested at his North Naples home on Thursday and taken to the Naples Jail Center.

He is charged with burglary with battery.

A Cheektowaga woman was arrested three times Tuesday, each on different charges, according to the Erie County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s office says 28-year-old Sarah Szymanski was arrested first by a “local police agency” and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle. She was processed and released.

Szymanski was then arrested by Lancaster police for obstruction of governmental administration, reckless driving, speeding, aggravated unlicensed operation and failing to stop at a stop sign. She was processed and released on appearance tickets.

The third arrest was by the sheriff’s office after a victim stated Szymanski was selling discounted Best Buy gift cards on a social media app.

The victim stated he gave Szymanski $1,450 to buy a laptop, she went into the Clarence Best Buy and purchased a printer and fled in a waiting vehicle.

Szymanski was located by the sheriff’s office later Tuesday and charged with grand larceny in the fourth degree, aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle as well as a vehicle and traffic law violation.

An Orlando police officer has been relieved of duty and is facing charges after body camera footage showed him pushing a man to the ground prior to his arrest near Lake Ivanhoe last September.

The officer, Frank Sikos, wrote in an arrest report that he responded to the area of Alden Road and Virginia Drive after two people said they saw a man, identified as Bennett Robinson, trying to get into a construction site across the street.

The arrest report says Robinson told officers he was a contractor inspecting the construction site on his walk home, around 4:15 a.m.

Video footage has emerged showing the dying moments of a female cartel boss after she was fatally wounded during a shootout with police in Mexico.

The clip and photographs appear to confirm she was María Guadalupe López Esquivel, known as ‘La Catrina,’ a female member of a cartel hit squad that massacred 13 police officers in October.

The 21-year-old was involved in an attack against the military, national guard and police in La Bocanda, a town in the central state of Michoacán.

Officials in Michoacán said six male gunmen were captured and a woman was killed after they opened fire on soldiers and police in the same area where the October ambush occurred.

State officials initially did not provide the identity of the woman killed in the Friday shootout, but videos and photos posted on the internet late Sunday showed the woman wounded on a stretcher, with a tattoo of a ‘Catrina’ on her thigh.

Photos of the woman circulated earlier showed the same tattoo in the same place; some photos also show her holding a pistol.

The Catrina is a skeletal female figure with a wide hat that has become associated with Mexico’s Day of the Dead.

SOMERSET — Chief George McNeil reports that the Somerset Police Department arrested and charged a woman who owns a palm reading business with stealing over $70,000 from a client of hers.

TRACEY MILANOVICH, AGE 37, OF SOMERSET was charged with:

Obtaining Property Over $250 by Trick (Six Counts)
Larceny Over $1200
Intimidation of a Witness
MILANOVICH was arraigned on Monday, Dec. 30, at Fall River District Court.

MILANOVICH operated Tracy’s Psychic Palm Reader out of a location on County Street. Anyone who believed they have been victimized by MILANOVICH is asked to contact Somerset Police Officer Donald Cormier at 508-679-2138.

On Dec. 17, Somerset Police launched an investigation into MILANOVICH after a resident reported that she tricked the resident into giving her large sums of money.

The subsequent investigation revealed that MILANOVICH convinced the victim that her daughter was possessed by a demon, and that cash and household items were needed in order to banish the spirit from her daughter.

MILANOVICH was found to have stolen approximately $71,000 from the victim and the victim additionally purchased multiple household items for her, like towels and bedding.

As a result of the investigation, conducted by Somerset Police Officer Cormier and Officer Lance Rhodes, an arrest warrant was obtained and MILANOVICH was placed under arrest on Dec. 27.

These are allegations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty.

A Kansas police officer has resigned after admitting that he wrote ‘f**king pig’ on his own McDonald’s coffee cup and blamed a drive-thru employee, before his chief shared it on social media in a viral post.

The Herington police chief Brian Hornaday posted the image of the order ticket on Saturday and outraged locals called for a public apology from the fast food chain and for the employee to be fired.

But the restaurant branch said Monday they thoroughly reviewed security video ‘from every angle, which clearly shows the words were not written by one of our employees’.

Now the 23-year-old officer – who has not been named – said the stunt was ‘meant to be a joke’ according to Hornaday who made the announcement Monday.

An Arizona father who beat a man to death in a convenience store parking lot after he tried to break into 16-year-old his daughter’s bathroom stall has been jailed for eight years.

Melvin Harris III, 40, was arrested in August 2018 after beating Leon Leevon Armstrong, 27, to death in the parking lot of a convenience store in Phoenix, Arizona.

Harris was waiting in his car for his daughter and her friends when she emerged from the store, claiming Armstrong had tried forcefully to get into the bathroom stall she was in.

Armstrong had coincidentally asked Harris for money before he went into the store.

Security guards were alerted and police were called but Harris beat Armstrong to death in the parking lot.


Leon Leevon Armstrong

Armstrong died in the hospital from brain swelling, a nasal fracture and loss of oxygen.

Witnesses said they watched Harris repeatedly kick and stomp on the man.

Harris was originally charged with second-degree murder but he accepted a plea deal that saw the charge reduced to manslaughter.

The dude got arrested once before this for using a painter’s extension rod to point the stoplight cameras into the sky instead of cutting the wires. He didn’t cut the wires until AFTER he got out after being arrested the first time-which he did after posting on Facebook videos that proved that the stoplights are intentionally rigged to trick drivers into citations. The yellow lights at intersections with cameras only last THREE SECONDS, opposed to five seconds they last at other stoplights without cameras in the same county.

When he cut the camera cords, he reported his deeds to the news HIMSELF and then politicians pressured the local police into arresting him. The local police and sheriff deputies actually SUPPORT him for his actions because the lights have been killing people! During his most recent arrest, one of the Sherriffs Deputies actually offered to bail him out.

When he got home after these incidents, there was a surveillance camera planted at his house BY THE GOVERNMENT to watch him! His reaction to being surveilled? He painted over the camera in one of the flat out ballsiest “Fu*k You” to the Gubmint I’ve ever heard of.

And it gets EVEN CRAZIER. After painting over the camera, suddenly this guy (BTW, his name is Stephen Ruth) started GETTING ATTEMPTS ON HIS LIFE. He reports that a car intentionally tried to hit him in a head-on collision, and after talking about the car to his neighbors, they confirmed that the car in question (Or at least, one that was visibly identical, its’ occupants included) had been staking out his house! Somebody was out there trying to MURDER him over is discovery and actions.

As a final insult to injury, Ruth pointed out the VAST majority of the cameras were found SPECIFICALLY in lower-to-middle class neighborhoods. The victims of these rigged stoplights tried to go to the local news station to talk about the deaths of their family members that occurred from the rigging … Annnnnnndddddddd…. The local station “NEWS12”, never aired their interviews.

Remember how I said that, after cutting the cables and calling the local news station, Rugh was arrested because of pressure by Politicians? GET THIS: News12 is actually owned by CableVision, who provides INTERNET SERVICES TO THE CAMERAS! .Whereas Mr. Ruth was only trying to help people and save lives, he’s been caught up in a full-blown government conspiracy that is out for his blood.

Stephen Ruth is a full-blown HERO!

People who annoy an officer in one upstate New York county could find themselves facing jail time under a measure recently approved by a county legislature.

Under the Monroe County proposal, a person who annoys, alarms or threatens the personal safety of an officer could be punished with up to a year behind bars and up to a $5,000 fine.

Jamie Anthony, chief of staff for the Monroe County Legislature majority office, said county lawmakers passed the measure on Tuesday in a 17-10 vote. The county executive will hold a public hearing on the legislation and decide whether to approve it, she said.

The legislation also applies to first responders.
Some called the measure unconstitutional.

Iman Abid with the New York Civil Liberties Union said it will have a chilling effect on complaints against police. Abid said she is also concerned over what the legislation could mean for communities of color.

“Members of the community have every right to challenge police officers, particularly those that engage in unnecessary behavior,” she said in a statement. “At a time when more accountability of police departments is needed, this law takes us incredibly backward.”

In a statement last month, County Legislator Kara Halstead said she was proud to support legislation that “looks after those who look out for us.”

“This local law aims to crack down on behaviors of disrespect and incivility toward law enforcement and first responders in the hopes that these smaller incidents do not escalate,” she said in the statement.

A news release on the legislation also gave a mention to people dousing uniformed New York Police Department officers with water.

Delores Jones-Brown, professor emerita at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, said courts have found that the use of the words annoying or alarming in statue is overbroad and unconstitutionally vague.

The legislation, she said, could create a situation where people are scared to exercise their First Amendment rights. An officer could be annoyed by a person who asks them their badge number or who records them with a cellphone while on the job, Jones-Brown said.

“This statue definitely has the capacity to make people afraid to do that,” she said.

Jones-Brown added that a portion of the measure could survive a legal challenge — a section tied to conduct that threatens the personal safety of a police officer. Courts have found threats easier to define, she said, but they are not completely beyond interpretation.

Under the legislation, a prosecutor would have to prove that it was a person’s intent to threaten an officer’s personal safety, she said.
