When backup arrives, the officer (whose name was not released by MPD) says he “only wanted one [car for backup].” He claims that Brown got “right up in my face.” Several officers surround Brown. One angrily tells him to get his hand out of his pocket. When Brown points out that his hands are full, the officer wrenches Brown’s hand out, and a group of officers wrestle him to the ground and tase him.

New York, NY {PUBLISHED: March 6, 2017 at 12:50 pm | UPDATED: August 24, 2017 at 01:53 am} -- The New York health department alerted doctors to the case of a newborn who fell ill after undergoing the ultra-Orthodox Jewish practice in which the circumcision wound is cleaned by the Rabbi's mouth. The baby boy was rushed to hospital when he developed herpes following the controversial ancient circumcision ritual. A rash is said to have spread across the child’s genitals, buttocks, inner thighs and ankle two weeks after the procedure. An estimated 3,000 babies are circumcised each year using the method in New York City. NYC is home to the largest Jewish population outside Israel. There have been six cases of herpes among children who have had the ritual known as metzitzah b’peh performed on them since February 2015. Of the six previously undisclosed cases, two occurred last year and three in 2015. Herpes, a highly contagious viral disease which can cause blisters and ulcers. Herpes is more severe in newborn babies as their immune systems are not fully developed. Since 2000, there have been 24 cases of infant herpes linked to circumcision, leading to two deaths and two cases of brain damage.

Oakland, CA (WCJB) ~ United States -- A sex scandal involving Oakland police officers and a then underage girl has all the makings of a TV thriller. The saga is full of twists and turns. The scandal erupted months after Officer Brendan O'Brien committed suicide. O'Brien left a note spilling the details, including names. Three Oakland officers were placed on paid leave. A source said O'Brien in his suicide note confessed to exchanging messages with a young woman who goes by the name Celeste Guap. However, the note says he did not have sexual contact with her. The same sources said she has met multiple officers. In the note, O'Brien named the officers, including one sergeant, involved in the alleged sexual misconduct with Guap.

New Orleans, LA (WCJB) ~ United States -- On September 4, 2005, New Orleans police received a call from an officer at Danziger Bridge reporting gunfire. Several NOPD officers—including Sgt. Kenneth Bowen, Sgt. Robert Gisevius, Officer Anthony Villavaso, and Officer Robert Faulcon—arrived at the scene in a Budget rental truck. They proceeded to open fire with assault rifles and a shotgun on an unarmed family, the Bartholomews, who had been walking to a grocery store and were then sheltering behind a concrete barrier. 17-year-old James Brissette—a family friend—was killed, and four other people were wounded. The police shooters stated that while approaching the bridge, they had been fired on by civilians, and were forced to return fire. Homicide detective Arthur "Archie" Kaufman was made the lead investigator on the case. He was later found guilty of conspiring with the defendants to conceal evidence in order to make the shootings appear justified, including fabricating information for his official reports on the case. NOPD lieutenant Michael Lohman also encouraged the officers to "provide false stories about what had precipitated the shooting" and plant a firearm near the scene. (Click here for video)

Aiken, S.C. (WCJB) ~ United States -- A horrifying new dashcam video shows at least one white member of the Aiken, S.C. Police Department search inside a black man’s rectum for the apparent crime of being a passenger in a car with paper tags, which, it bears noting, is not a crime in the state of South Carolina. Driving a car with paper tags isn’t illegal either, as long as they aren’t expired.

Chicago, IL -- Surveillance video (Click here for video) in connection with a Chicago police officer's fatally shooting 17-year-old Cedrick Chatman was released today by attorneys for the teen's family. A federal judge ordered the release of footage showing the 2013 shooting today after the city withdrew its objection to its being made public. Chicago police officer Kevin Fry fatally shot Chatman Jan. 7, 2013, in broad daylight during a foot chase, according to court records. Chatman’s family had fought for the video to be released as part of a wrongful death lawsuit they filed over the shooting against the city, Fry and Chicago police officer Lou Toth, who pursued Chatman along with Fry during the foot chase. Family members have argued the video will counter the city and police’s narrative that the 17-year-old was a danger to police. IPRA concluded the officers' actions were justified because they reasonably believed Chatman was armed at the time.

The undercover cop was identified as Winston McDonald, who testified in court that Duplan allegedly flashed a switchblade at him outside of the store, and said, "Give me your money or I will stab you," according to court papers.

Miami, FL ~ USA -- A Florida jury began weighing on Tuesday whether a man who killed his wife and posted a photo of her blood-spattered, lifeless body on Facebook committed first-degree murder. Attorneys for Derek Medina, 33, argued that he was acting in self-defense when he fired eight shots at Jennifer Alfonso, 27, in the kitchen of their Miami-area residence. The August 2013 shooting followed a fight in which she had threatened to leave, prosecutors said during closing statements. They argued that Medina retrieved a .380-caliber pistol from his bedroom and pulled the trigger repeatedly in a premeditated act of murder. "Every single shot hit her because he was aiming and he wanted her dead," said Assistant State Attorney Leah Klein in Miami-Dade County circuit court. Medina wrote on Facebook shortly before turning himself in: "I'm going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife. My wife was punching me, and I am not going to stand any more with the abuse so I did what I did," he added in the post. (Click here for video)

"Dilemmas of Democracy
Race & Police Brutality in the USA - 2012!"


Runtime: 01:34:31 (One Hour, Thirty-Four Min. & Thirty-One Secs.)
Movie Site: Streat Beatz & Movie Flixs™ Site (Link to Movies)

Description: In the United States, race and police brutality continue to be closely linked, and the phenomenon has sparked a string of race riots and general uprisings over the years. During the Vietnam War, anti-war demonstrations were sometimes quelled through the use of billy-clubs and CS gas, commonly known as tear gas. The most notorious of these assaults took place during the August 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. The actions of the police were later described as a "police riot" in the Walker Report to the U.S. National Commission on the Causes and Prevention of Violence (See Documentary). One recent and notable uprising was caused by the arrest and beating of Rodney King on March 3, 1991 by officers of the Los Angeles Police Department. The police officers' brutality had been videotaped by a bystander and widely broadcast (around the world) afterwards. When the four law enforcement officers charged with assault and other charges were acquitted, the 1992 Los Angeles Riots broke out (See Documentary). Copyright © 2013 Streat Beatz™.

Josh Duggar has resigned as Executive Director of the Family Research Council, acknowledging he sexually molested underage girls including some of his sisters, calling his conduct inexcusable.

Josh just told People, "Twelve years ago, as a young teenager. I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret." He continues, "We spoke with authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling."

The molestations occurred in 2002 and 2003, when he was 14. He fondled the genitals and breasts of the girls, some of whom were sleeping.

Josh's wife Anna says he confessed his "past teenage mistakes" to her 2 years before he asked her to marry him.

The incidents were not reported to police until 2006, and the statute of limitations has now long since passed. But Josh says he believes God has shown him mercy and given him redemption.

Washington, D.C. (WCJB) -- The Navy Reserve discharged Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden this year after he tested positive for cocaine, U.S. officials confirmed. Biden was commissioned as an ensign in May 2013 and assigned as a public affairs officer in a Norfolk, Virginia-based reserve unit. A month later, he tested positive for cocaine, and he was discharged in February, according to the report. The vice president's office didn't comment on the report. The U.S. official said the Navy never had contact with the vice president's office over the issue. The Navy further stated the standard procedure for failed drug tests is administrative discharge.

The discharge of Biden, a 44-year-old lawyer and managing partner at an investment firm, was first reported on Thursday. He confirmed the report in a statement to media sources. "It was the honor of my life to serve in the U.S. Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge. I respect the Navy's decision. With the love and support of my family, I'm moving forward," he said. Hunter Biden is the younger of Biden's two sons. His older brother, Beau Biden, is Delaware's attorney general and a major in the Delaware Army National Guard. He was deployed for a year in Iraq.

California -- A vitamin tycoon got nine years in prison Wednesday for asking a would-be hitman to off his fashion model wife for $80,000.

Dino Guglielmelli, 53, pleaded no contest last week to attempting to murder 35-year-old Monica Andreny, the buxom brunette mother of his two young daughters who goes by the name Monica Olsen.

The couple was embroiled in a bitter divorce and were fighting over money and custody of their girls when Guglielmelli offered his friend and business associate Richard Fuhrmann the megabucks bounty on his wife's head, prosecutors said.

Fuhrmann told authorities he went along with the assassination plot at first, hoping his friend would cool down, but eventually went to cops.

With police help, he recorded a lengthy conversation last October during which Guglielmelli arranged the killing.

Posted: 12:15 am, Friday, June 13, 2014 EDT - Updated: 04:11 AM PDT June 18, 2014

San Fernando, CA -- Vitamin tycoon Dino Gulelmelli (pictured above, right) pleaded guilty to attempted murder in the second degree. In an 11th-hour plea deal ahead of his expected trial, Gulelmelli copped a plea deal on Friday. He admitted to hiring a hitman to murder his wife, Model Monica Olsen (pictured above, left). Formal sentencing will be held next week where he faces nine years in jail and three years probation after serving his jail sentence. The 53-year-old Gulelmelli once ran a multi million dollar beauty products business. Guglielmelli has spent eight months in custody awaiting trial after prosecutors discovered he had secretly wired $4.4 million out of the country and planned to flee. He filed for bankruptcy while in custody.

The last-minute deal spares ex catwalk model Monica from testifying against the father of her two young daughters. Guglielmelli has a son and daughter from his two previous marriages. He appeared before San Fernando judge Lloyd Nash wearing an orange jump suit and appeared nervous. When asked if he understood the terms of the plea deal, he was barely audible when he responded: 'Yes, your honor.' No members of his family or friends were in court to support him.

In an exclusive interview a week prior, Monica said: 'It’s surreal. I don’t know - I don’t know how to feel I have mix emotions, it’s still shocking to me that he took the plea, I can barely believe this is happening. 'When I go to to court next week and hear him plead guilty then perhaps I will fully believe that justice has been served. At the moment I still feel that I am dreaming.' Guglielmelli was embroiled in an increasingly bitter divorce with third wife Monica when he offered unemployed Army vet Richard Fuhrmann $80,000 to kill her. Fuhrmann freaked out and called cops before secretly taping Gulielmelli discussing ways of killing Monica, 32.

Furhmann was expected to be the star witness at Guglielmelli’s trial next month. His friendship with Guglielmelli turned sour after Monica slapped him with a subpoena to give evidence during a custody hearing. Furhmann said he didn’t mention Guglielmelli’s threats then but after Guglielmelli exploded in temper over his perceived disloyalty he feared the former waste disposal entrepreneur would find another hitman, according to court papers.

Outside court, his lawyer said: "'Dino is devastated. He has four children and we were in a debate about the evidence against him. If he had lost it would have been life imprisonment. Those tapes were pretty strong. Dino regrets what he said. He just lost and messed up. Dino is a decent guy and wants to get on with his life.'" The attorney claimed Guglielmelli, who will return to court for formal sentencing next week, had not hidden money oversees or elsewhere,

Assistant distrct attorney Emily Cole told media sources that Monica was happy with the plea deal. Montreal-born Monica gave up her runway career when she married Guglielmelli 10 years ago but developed her own successful Skin by Monica beauty line shortly afterwards. She claims he became jealous and tried to destroy her career as their marriage broke down. Guglielmelli and Monica were embroiled in an increasingly bitter custody battle over daughters Cienna, nine, and six-year-old Vandella when he allegedly tried to have her killed.

Will not Fare Well!

Posted: 6:23 PM EDT, Wed April 2, 2014 - Updated: 3:23 AM PDT, Wed April 3, 2014

Delaware (WCJB) -- Robert H. Richards IV, great-grandson of the chemical magnate Irenee du Pont, was convicted of rape by a Delaware court in 2009. However, the wealthy heir to the du Pont family fortune was spared prison because he would "not fare well" behind bars, according to court documents. Instead, he received an eight-year suspended prison sentence in 2009 for raping his toddler daughter The sentencing order signed by a Delaware judge said "defendant will not fare well" in prison and the eight years were suspended. Richards was placed on eight years' probation and ordered to get treatment and register as a sex offender, the documents show. He was also prohibited from having contact with children under 16, including his own children. Delaware's Judicial Code of Conduct prohibits Judge Jan R. Jurden from discussing the 2009 ruling with reporters, court spokeswoman Amy Quinlan told Corrupt Justice™.

The documents were never sealed, yet the ruling managed to go unnoticed until March 2014. Richards' former wife, Tracy Richards, filed a lawsuit in Delaware Superior Court on behalf of their children. The lawsuit alleges "personal injuries arising from the childhood sexual abuse." The 11-page suit alleges that not only was their daughter abused, but Richards abused their son, too. The suit seeks unspecified monetary damages. While he was convicted of raping his daughter, Richards has never been charged with sexually molesting his son, according to Jason Miller, a spokesman for the Delaware attorney general's office.

Attorney John C. Balaguer is representing Richards in the civil case, his assistant told media sources. Balaguer has not returned e-mails or voice mail messages Corrupt Justice™ has left for him. Corrupt Justice™ tried repeatedly to reach Richards and Eugene Maurer, the attorney who represented him in 2009. Maurer is no longer representing Richards, his assistant said on Wednesday. When asked if he had a comment; he has not offered one.

This week, after news of Richards' 2009 case came to light, many took to Twitter to criticize the Judge Jurden's in the case, saying that it echoed a recent Texas case in which a wealthy teenager driving drunk killed four people but received no jail time. Ethan Couch was sentenced last year to 10 years' probation. A witness in Couch's case claimed the teenager was a victim of "affluenza" -- the product of wealthy, privileged parents who never set limits for the boy.

One member of the Delaware legal community came to Jurden's defense Tuesday. "It's wrong to attribute (the 'defendant would not fare well' comment) to Judge Jurden," said Richard Kirk, a lawyer who is chairman of a Delaware State Bar Association committee that he says steps up to respond "when judges are criticized and unable to speak for themselves." Kirk says the argument that Richards would not do well in prison could have been the recommendation of probation or parole officers. However, he said, "common sense suggests that it came from defense counsel."

As for the prosecutor's side, the attorney general's spokesman gave media sources a written statement. "Cases of child sexual abuse are extremely complicated and difficult," it read. The objective is to "secure justice in every case to the best of its ability given the unique facts and circumstances presented in each case -- sometimes that results in a resolution that is less than what prosecutors would want," the statement read. "In this particular case, the facts and circumstances made it unlikely that a conviction could be secured at trial. ...This resolution protected the victim and imposed conditions that would make it less likely the defendant could harm others."

Open Denial!

Posted: January 29, 2013, 1:33 PM - Updated: January 30, 2013 12:08 AM PST

Heber Springs, Ark. -- Mindy McCready (pictured right) gave a televison interview about the death of her boyfriend, producer/musician David Wilson, in a news interview with televison media sources. Authorities said Wilson was found dead of a gunshot wound on Jan. 14, 2013, on the porch of the couple's home in Heber Springs, Ark. At the time, police said they responded to Wilson's home after receiving a report of a self-inflicted gunshot. The investigation, though, remains open, and murder hasn't been ruled out.

When sources sat down with the country singer, and was asked, "For the record, did you kill David? Did you shoot David?" McCready responded: "Oh my God, no. Oh my God, no. He was my life," McCready, said. "We were each other's life." When asked if McCready, 38, was "100 percent" certain that Wilson had committed suicide and had not been murdered, McCready said, "I don't know." Calling Wilson her "soul mate," McCready also detailed the moment during which she said she first found Wilson's body. "I just started screaming, calling 911," she said. "I lay down next to him and just just pleaded with him not to die."

McCready also blasted reports that Wilson had been cheating on her. "David was not having an affair with another woman," she said. "That is absolutely totally untrue." Police, meanwhile, haven't named McCready, or anyone else, as a suspect in Wilson's death. Authorities are awaiting lab results in order to determine if Wilson's death was caused by a self-inflicted gunshot wound or murder.

McCready made headlines in 2011 in the wake of controversy surrounding custody over her son, 7-year-old Zander, whose father is country artist Bill McKnight. McCready's debut album came out in 1996. She released her most recent studio album, "I'm Still Here," in 2010. The televison show aired a portion of the interview on Tuesday morning.

"Eyes of the Beholder!"

Posted: January 28, 2013 3:35 PM PST - Updated: January 29, 2013 1:21 AM PST

SEATTLE, WA (WCJB) - Peggy Sue Thomas (pictured left) a former beauty queen who had been charged with murder in the 2003 death of a man found fatally shot on Whidbey Island in Washington, has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge - rendering criminal assistance. Island County authorities hope Thomas, winner of the 2000 Ms. Washington pageant, will spend four years in prison after she is sentenced in February.

She was accused of plotting with her then-boyfriend, James Huden, to kill a man named Russ Douglas, who was found shot to death in a car shortly after Christmas 2003. Huden was convicted of first-degree murder last summer and sentenced to 80 years. Huden reportedly refused to testify against Thomas, whose trial was due to begin next week.

Prosecutor Greg Banks also tells media sources that a key prosecution witness was gravely ill.

Thomas' Defense lawyer said Thomas maintains her innocence. He says the plea she entered Thursday gives her much-needed relief from a case that has dogged her for nearly a decade. Thomas was arrested in July 2011 on her houseboat near Farmington, N.M.

McAfee Anti-Virus!

Posted: 11/13/2012 4:10 pm PST Updated: 11/13/2012 5:27 pm PST

Belize -- John McAfee (pictured above, center) the Silicon Valley creator of an antivirus software that bears his name, was being sought Monday by police in Belize as a "person of interest" in the slaying of a fellow expatriate on an island where McAfee lived a high-profile existence, police said Monday. Once a software engineer at Lockheed, McAfee developed his antivirus program and posted it on computer bulletin boards run from computers in his creaky one-bedroom farmhouse on Cheeney Street in Santa Clara before launching McAfee Associates in 1989. By 1992, untold thousands of individuals had downloaded his program and more than half of the companies in the Fortune 100 had purchased licenses to use it. McAfee left the valley shortly after his company went public in 1992. In 2010, his company was bought by Santa Clara chipmaker Intel, which declined to comment on the revelations involving McAfee.

McAfee's pursuit by police in Belize represents only the latest stunning twist in the saga of an entrepreneur who once had a fortune estimated at $100 million. His multimillion-dollar fortune was mostly lost in the sour economy and he moved to Belize in 2008, according to a story published in the San Pedro Sun. Earlier this year, police looking for drugs raided McAfee's home on the Belizean island of Ambergris Caye, found him with a 17-year-old girlfriend and confiscated 10 firearms.

On Sunday, a housekeeper discovered the body of McAfee's neighbor, Gregory Viant Faull, 52, in Faull's home. Faull was lying faceup in a pool of blood with an apparent gunshot wound to the rear of his head, said Belize police spokesman Raphael Martinez. Late Monday, media sources reported that McAfee had called to declare his innocence and to say he hid from police somewhere in Belize by burying himself in sand with a cardboard box over his head so he could breathe. "It was extraordinarily uncomfortable," he told Wired. "But they will kill me if they find me." "He is a person of interest," Martinez told this newspaper. Police still had no motive for the shooting late Monday afternoon, he said.

A laptop computer and iPhone were missing and a single Luger 9mm shell was found at the stairs leading up to the upper "flat" of the house, where Faull's body was found, Martinez said. Investigators have interviewed most of Faull's neighbors in the Mata Grande area six miles north of San Pedro Town and want to talk to McAfee, Martinez said.

Martinez said Belize has seen more than 120 gang- and drug-related killings this year. But slayings are rare on the island, where Guerrero said Faull's killing is only the second in the past year. The previous killing was the result of a domestic dispute involving an American couple, the mayor said.

In San Pedro Town, the heart of the island, McAfee, 67, is "very well known," Mayor Daniel Guerrero told this newspaper. "He just gave a huge donation to the police force and donated a very huge boat to the coast guard. I know him as a good person. Now things are changing." The boat he donated to the Belize National Coast Guard in 2009 was worth more than $1 million. In October, he was the first resident to offer help following a community meeting over concerns about escalating drug- and gang-related crime, Guerrero said.

Guerrero said he knew both McAfee and Faull and that he lives near McAfee's compound of "one, two, three, four, five little buildings -- cottages." On an island of 20,000 residents where Americans stand out, McAfee was particularly well known, Guerrero said. "I honestly don't know if they were friends," he said. "Just the name McAfee -- I remember him from the antivirus," Guerrero said.

In a story in the Sun three days before the discovery of Faull's slaying, Guerrero said McAfee had offered to "equip the police force in San Pedro with anything that he could at the time and is willing to give even more." McAfee also was willing to let police officers use "five air-conditioned rooms at his establishment." His offer was surprising because police in April, looking for "drugs and illegal firearms," raided his home, confiscated 10 guns and temporarily detained him in handcuffs in a treatment that McAfee characterized as "brutal," according to a report in the Sun. He told Sun reporter Jorge Aldana that police detained him for 14 hours without food. He was later released without being charged, although authorities were investigating whether antibiotics or antiseptics had been produced at the home without a license. With only three main streets in the center of San Pedro Town, McAfee cut a well-known figure, Aldana said. "McAfee mingles a lot and was mostly seen walking around town," Aldana said. "Everybody knows everybody in San Pedro."

UMass Dorm Rape!

Posted: October 25, 2012 2:17 PM - Updated: October 26, 2012 - 9:41 PM PDT

Clockwise from top left: Emmanuel Bile, Caleb Womack, Adam Licciardi and Justin King are accused of raping a University of Massachusetts student in her dorm room; all pleaded not guilty. AMHERST, Mass. (WCJB) - Four teenagers pleaded not guilty Monday to charges that they raped a University of Massachusetts student in her dorm room. Police said someone else signed the teenagers into the dorm on Saturday Oct. 13 on the UMass flagship campus in Amherst. They say the teenagers aren't students at the university, but the victim knew them. A judge set bail at $10,000 cash for each defendant: 18-year-olds Emmanuel Bile, Justin King and Adam Licciardi, and 17-year-old Caleb Womack. They were also ordered to wear GPS tracking devices.

UMass Amherst Police Chief John Horvath said the victim reported the rape at 11:30 p.m. on Sunday Oct. 14. There wasn't any damage to the dorm room that would indicate forcible entry and there didn't appear to be signs of a struggle in the room. The investigation is ongoing. University officials told other students about the alleged attack on Monday. They said they are reviewing security procedures, and Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy said in a statement that violence won't be tolerated on the campus.

Police said there's no danger to anyone else on campus.

"Fantasy Slut League!"

Posted: 6:17 PM EDT, Tue October 23, 2012 - Updated: 1:20 AM PDT, Wed October 24, 2012
"Achieve the Honorable"

-- Piedmont High School's longstanding school motto.
Oakland, CA (WCJB) -- High school boys in a Oakland, California town overlooking San Francisco Bay started a "Fantasy Slut League" targeting girls, school officials said Tuesday. Piedmont, an affluent community of 11,000 residents, sits in Oakland Hills overlooking the bay. The tight-knit city consists of "established, high-quality homes on quiet tree-lined streets," according to the city's website. "Achieve the Honorable" is the longstanding school motto, the website says. Its Facebook page says media sources named the school one of the best in the country.

Piedmont High School Principal Rich Kitchens said in a letter to parents last week that boys organized "a 'Fantasy Slut League' in which our female students (unbeknownst to most of them) are drafted as part of the league," according to media sources.

"Male students earn points for documented engagement in sexual activities with female students," the principal wrote, according to the same source. "Participation often involved pressure/manipulation by older students that included alcohol to impair judgment/control and social demands to be popular." The principal's letter said school staff members learned of the boys' activity during a recent assembly about date rape prevention, sources reported. The assembly, held for parents October 2 and for freshmen and new students the next day, involved members of the advanced acting class performing "scenarios based on true stories from our school," the high school's website says. The Parents Night was designed as a preview so parents could discuss the program with their children.

Kitchens, who said the school is investigating the accusations, couldn't be immediately reached for comment Tuesday. Piedmont Unified School District Superintendent Constance Hubbard's office declined to release a copy of the principal's letter. But the superintendent is encouraging educators, parents and their teenagers to discuss how "to make good choices and to treat each other with respect and dignity," she said in a statement Tuesday. "We wanted to communicate to families to encourage a dialogue and to inform parents of what we as a school community are doing to proactively address activities that are detrimental to the culture we want for our students," Hubbard said.

Piedmont interim Police Chief Scott Wyatt said his department of 20 sworn personnel hasn't received any communication from the school system. "Everything we heard is from the media, and we've had not any reports of criminal activity," Wyatt said.

Solar-Powered DoJ!

Posted: 09/23/2011 08:36:10 AM PDT Updated: 09/24/2011 03:16:56 PM PDT Solyndra CEO Brian Harrison. left, and Chief Financial Officer Bill Stover, right, are sworn in on Capitol Hill in Washington, Friday, Sept. 23 2011, prior to testifying before the House Oversight and Investigations subcommittee. As they had telegraphed earlier this week, Solyndra's top two executives refused to answer questions from lawmakers at a Washington hearing about the Fremont solar company's controversial $535 million loan guarantee from the federal government and its stunning failure. But the questions, from representatives of both parties, highlight how Solyndra's collapse has turned into a highly partisan debate about the role of the federal government in supporting clean technology amid fierce global competition. And the tough queries for CEO Brian Harrison and Chief Financial Officer W.G. "Bill" Stover hint the probe is expanding to include the role of the company's financial backers, how the federal loan money was spent and possible misrepresentations about the company's finances.
"Two months ago Brian Harrison looked me in the eye and assured me the company was on track to be cash-flow positive," said Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., in his opening statement. And invoking Watergate, the mother of all Washington scandals, he continued, "We have been asking questions about this deal since February. Does Solyndra have something to hide? What did they know about their finances and when did they know it?" Democrats were equally vocal, pushing back on Republican attempts to tie the Obama administration to the failure and arguing that the GOP was trying to turn it into a scandal to demonize clean technology. "Republicans in Congress are dancing on Solyndra's grave," said Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Los Angeles. Harrison and Stover were flanked at the hearing by their private criminal attorneys, who advised their clients to invoke their Fifth Amendment rights and not testify due to an ongoing criminal investigation by the Department of Justice. Solyndra filed for bankruptcy Sept. 6 and its offices were raided by the FBI two days later. "While I hope to have an opportunity to assist this committee in the future, on the advice of my attorney, I must respectfully decline to answer any questions," Harrison told Stearns, who oversaw the House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing. The unfolding Solyndra saga has riveted Washington's political class. Minutes after the hearing adjourned, for instance, the Republican National Committee emailed journalists a video clip of the Solyndra executives, looking solemn and ill at ease, pleading the Fifth. Solyndra first applied for an Energy Department loan guarantee in 2006 during the George W. Bush administration, but the company did not receive the money until 2009 after Barack Obama took office. It was the first DOE loan to be financed by the federal stimulus plan passed by Congress, and Obama gave a high-profile speech at the company's Fremont plant in May 2010. Solyndra's two largest investors are Argonaut Venture Capital and Madrone Capital Partners. Republican critics have zeroed in on Argonaut, the investment arm of the Tulsa, Okla.-based George Kaiser Family Foundation. George Kaiser raised money for Obama's 2008 presidential campaign. Madrone Capital Partners of Menlo Park invests on behalf of members of the Walton family of Walmart fame, which has a long history of supporting Republican candidates and conservative causes. Steven Mitchell of Argonaut and Jamie McJunkin of Madrone both serve on Solyndra's board of directors and have been asked to provide documents to Congress. "Did the DOE make a mistake in investing in Solyndra? A lot of smart people thought otherwise," said Waxman. "The next step should be to hear from these investors, from Argonaut and Madrone." Solyndra's $535 million loan guarantee financed construction of its now idle 300,000-square-foot factory along Interstate 880 in Fremont. While ramping up production capacity, Solyndra struggled to sell its cylindrical-shaped solar panels in a market in which the company faced increasingly fierce competition from low-cost Chinese manufacturers. One focus of the congressional probe is a controversial debt restructuring deal in February involving Solyndra, Argonaut, Madrone and the Department of Energy in which investors put in an additional $75 million in exchange for the government agreeing that the investors would be paid before the taxpayers in the event of bankruptcy. Lawmakers also want a fuller accounting of how the loan money was spent. "American taxpayers want to know what happened to the money," said Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn. Details of the Solyndra loan are publicly available on the government's Recovery Act website. They show that Redwood City construction giant Rudolph & Sletten was paid $261.6 million, while PG&E was paid more than $4 million in utility bills. Silicon Valley legal powerhouse Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, which helped Solyndra negotiate the terms of the DOE loan, earned $2.4 million in legal fees. On Friday, the House approved a largely symbolic measure slashing the Loan Guarantee program by $100 million. "You managed to do something that few Congresses have," Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Colo, told the Solyndra executives Friday. "You killed a program." Published: September 15, 2011
"I have no doubt they will continue to hire more people." -- Jonathan Silver, who heads the U.S. Energy loan program
Washington, D.C. -- The Treasury Department's inspector general has opened a new front in the investigation of the government loan to Solyndra, the now bankrupt company that had been touted as a model of President Obama's ambitious green energy program, ABC News and the Center for Public Integrity/iWatch News have learned. The new probe involves the $535 million loan, arranged by the Energy Department, but actually processed by the Federal Financing Bank, a government lending institution that falls under Treasury's control. Already, the FBI and the Energy Department's inspector general have executed search warrants at Solyndra's headquarters and questioned company executives. "We're going to look at everything the FFB had to do with its role in this thing," Rich Delmar, a spokesman for the Treasury Department's inspector general, told News sources.
Earlier this month News sources disclosed that Solyndra received a rock-bottom interest rate of 1 to 2 percent -- lower than those affixed to other Energy Department green energy projects. The low rate was set even as an outside agency, Fitch Rating, scored Solyndra as a B+ -- "speculative" -- investment. Energy Department officials said the bank set the rate, based on formulas including the payout length, and that Solyndra did not receive special treatment. Word of the broadening probe came as the head of the Energy Department's loan program came before Congress at a contentious hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday. After spending months touting the Obama administration's decision to loan $535 million to Solyndra, top officials took a new tack Wednesday while testifying about the company's abrupt shut-down and bankruptcy: the loan, they said, was actually the Bush administration's idea. The Energy Department's top lending officer told Congress that the Solyndra loan application was not only filed during President Bush's term, but it surged towards completion before Obama took office in January 2009. "By the time the Obama administration took office in late January 2009, the loan programs' staff had already established a goal of, and timeline for, issuing the company a conditional loan guarantee commitment in March 2009," said Jonathan Silver, who heads the Energy loan program. Even after the loan was restructured in 2011, the Energy Department and other administration officials continued to tout Solyndra's prospects. In May, Silver told ABC News and iWatch News that questions about the loan guarantee were unfounded, and that Solyndra's canceled public offering and restructuring were hiccups that are typical for start-up companies. "I have never seen a company go straight up without a bump along the way," Silver said. "I have no doubt they will continue to hire more people."

'Prejudicial Error!'

July 14, 2011 Roger Clemens (left) leaves the court room July 7th after the second day of jury slection. The judge overseeing the perjury trial of famed former pitcher Roger Clemens declared a mistrial Thursday after prosecutors played a portion of a video that the judge deemed prejudicial. U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton said prosecutors erred in playing video of Congressional testimony referencing statements made by the wife of a “critical” witness in the case. “I am very troubled by this,” said U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton said before declaring a mistrial. The declaration came on just the second day of testimony and after it took a week to pick a jury. The request for a mistrial came from Clemens’ lawyers after prosecutors mistakenly played a portion of Congressional testimony that referenced the wife of former pitcher Andy Pettitte, a friend and former teammate of Clemens. Pettitte told Congressional investigators Clemens had confided in him in 1999 or 2000 that he had taken a performance-enhancing substance. Pettitte also told Congressional investigators that he told his wife about that conversation when it took place. She provided an affadavit to Congress backing her husband’s claims. Walton ruled that prosecutors could not raise Laurie Pettitte’s statements before the jury because he didn’t think it would be fair to Clemens. On Thursday morning, prosecutors played Congressional testimony of Rep. Elijah Cummings asking Clemens questions about his alleged use of steroids and Human Growth Hormone. Cummings then quoted Laurie Pettitte’s affadavit to Congress and talked about how Pettitte seemed like a reliable witness. Before defense lawyers could object, Walton ordered a halt to the proceedings, dismissed the jury and then excoriated prosecutors for violating his order preventing any mention of what Pettitte may have told his wife. The judge called Pettitte a “critical witness” and said such information may unfairly bolster his crediblity with jurors. He sharply criticized prosecutors, accusing them of making a mistake he would not expect from a novice attorney. “A first-year law student would know you can’t bolster the credibility of one witness with clearly inadmissible evidence,” Walton said. Irritated with prosecutors, Walton stopped the proceedings. He said he was worried that the information on the video would unfairly bolster Pettitte’s credibility with jurors. “I don’t see how I can unring the bell,” he added, before leaving the bench to discuss the matter with a “colleague.” Federal prosecutors barely got a chance to defend themselves before Walton left the courtroom. They had been admonished during opening statements for violating another order by Walton precluding them from introducing testimony from other ballplayers about their use of HGH. Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven Durham said he had given the tapes to the defense lawyers and they hadn’t objected to them. He also noted that the comments about Laurie Pettitte were in the context of a broader discussion with Clemens about his own denials about HGH and steroid use. Clemens said at the Congressional hearing that Pettitte had misheard or misremembered their conversation and he asserted that he had never admitted to Pettitte that he had taken HGH. A clearly chagrined Durham also told Walton that “we are not evading any responsibility” shortly before Walton left the bench.

Hollywood Ripper!

4:15 a.m. PDT, July 8, 2011 LOS ANGELES, CA (WCJB) -- A suspected serial killer accused in the death of actor Ashton Kutcher's former girlfriend is now being charged with the 1993 murder of a Chicago teenager. Michael Gargiulo (pictured center) is already being held for a series of other alleged crimes, including the 2001 stabbing of Kutcher's ex-girlfriend, 22-year-old Ashley Ellerin. On Thursday, prosecutors in the Chicago case charged Gargiulo with first-degree murder in the death of 18-year-old Tricia Pacaccio (pictured above, left). Pacaccio was repeatedly stabbed in the chest in the early hours of Aug. 14, 1993 as she was about to unlock the door to her family's home in Glenview. Her father found her hours later still clutching her door key.
  Authorities say Gargiulo and Pacaccio were classmates at Glenbrook South High School. He was questioned, but never charged. Gargiulo then moved to California where he worked as an air conditioner repairman. He was arrested in 2008 on suspicion of attempted murder in connection with a Santa Monica attack in which a woman fought off an intruder who stabbed her repeatedly after breaking into her home late at night. DNA collected at the scene linked Gargiulo to the crime through a national database that included the sample taken in the Glenview case, officials said. Gargiulo was subsequently charged with the February 2001 stabbing death of 22-year-old Ashley Ellerin, who was the girlfriend of actor Ashton Kutcher. Kutcher told police he went to pick up Ellerin in the Hollywood Hills for a post-Grammy Awards party in 2001, but she didn't answer the door. He checked a back window and spotted what he thought were red wine stains on the carpet, and then left. Her body was discovered the next day by a friend. Kutcher was never considered a suspect. Gargiulo also faces charges in the murder of a Monterey Park woman, 32-year-old Maria Bruno.

White Oxy Again!

February 10, 2011 HUNTLEIGH • The 27-year-old woman found dead in the bedroom of former Anheuser-Busch chief executive August Busch IV (pictured above, far left) died from an accidental overdose of oxycodone, the St. Louis County medical examiner said today. Dr. Mary Case, the medical examiner, said in a one-paragraph statement released today that lethal levels of the painkiller oxycodone caused Adrienne Martin's (pictured above, right) death on Dec. 19. Sources say she was also found to have cocaine in her system, but Case's statement does not say what role, if any, that played in the death. "That's all we're prepared to say...that this is the cause and manner of death," said Suzanne McCune, the medical examiner's forensic administrator. The media broke the story on Sunday that oxycodone was found in Martin's blood. The information has been turned over to Robert McCulloch, the St. Louis County prosecutor investigating the case. Don Schneider, the prosecutor's spokesman, said "it's an ongoing investigation, we hope to have something to say in the very near future." It remains unclear where Martin got the drugs. Family members have said Martin had a prescription for an unrelated drug called Trazodone, which is used for sleep or depression. That drug was found in her system, sources said, and wasn't mentioned in Case's brief statement. Christine Trampler, Adrienne Martin's mother, has said her daughter was having trouble sleeping in the month's before her death. Oxycodone is widely recognized by its brand name, OxyContin. It is classified as an opiate analgesic and is said to change the way the brain and nervous system respond to pain, according to the National Institutes of Health. OxyContin is a slow-release pill, designed to provide pain relief over an extended period. But as a street drug, it is crushed or broken so the user gets the full effect of the painkiller at once, creating a high similar to heroin. OxyContin has been found in the bloodstreams of several celebrities who died young, including actor Heath Ledger. Kevin Martin, Adrienne Martin's ex-husband, has told the media that his wife had a heart disorder known as Long QT syndrome, which involves the electrical activity of the heart. That also wasn't addressed by the medical examiner. In an interview with the media last month, Busch said he had been in rehabilitation early in 2010 for depression and unspecified "other issues." Martin had been dating Busch for about two years, and was found with no signs of trauma to her body. Michael Jung, a Busch household employee, called police at 1:12 p.m. on Dec. 19 and said an unresponsive woman wouldn't wake up, according to a 911 call recording. He said he wasn't sure if she was alive because it was "dark back there" and he was going to get a light to check. Emergency responders pronounced Martin dead at 1:26 p.m. Police have said there were no signs of a cause of death at the scene. They also said the room was dark "due to curtains drawn in the bedroom" and that the room was outfitted with blackout curtains to shield the sun. Police have said there was nothing at the scene to indicate a cause of death. Busch, 46, took over as CEO of the brewing giant in 2006, but his tenure ended with the sale of A-B to InBev. Since the buyout, Busch has faded from public view, but remains on the company's board of directors. The media reported in 2009 that Busch had not been spotted at beer industry events, trade meetings or conferences. In January of 2009, he was granted a divorce from his wife of 2 1/2 years. After that, he was splitting time between a home near the Lake of the Ozarks and his home in Huntleigh. Adrienne Martin's death has put him back in the spotlight, and put focus on the beer heir's previous incidents with the law. In 1984, Busch avoided criminal charges after a car crash in Arizona that killed a 22-year-old woman. The crash occurred on Nov. 13, 1983, outside Tucson, Ariz. Busch, 20 at the time and a student at the University of Arizona, left a bar with the woman and, shortly after, crashed his black Corvette, police said. The woman, Michele Frederick, was thrown from the car. Busch was found six hours later at his home, dazed and bloodied. He had suffered a fractured skull and claimed he had amnesia. Authorities later said his blood alcohol level at the estimated time of the accident had been below the legal level for intoxication in Arizona. The investigation took seven months, after which authorities declined to press criminal charges, saying there wasn't adequate evidence to do so. They said the investigation took so long because of the "high profile" of the Busch family and because family lawyers had fought the taking of hair and fiber samples from Busch.

Priveleged Dealing!

December 7, 2010 Over a period of five months, undercover officers at Columbia made nearly $11,000 in drug purchases from five students before descending upon the campus in a storm that was labeled by the NYPD "Operation Ivy League." Law-enforcement agents bought cocaine, marijuana, ecstasy, Adderall, and LSD (which, according to the Times, the students applied to Altoids mints and SweetTarts candy) — all drugs that were also sold to students in fraternity houses and elsewhere. According to Columbia's student-run Bwog, the media has descended upon the Morningside Heights campus, and the dean has sent out a message to all students regarding the incident. The five young men under arrest are named Chris Coles, Harrison David, Adam Klein, Jose Stephan Perez, and Michael Wymbs, according to police. They primarily sold drugs in the common areas and bedrooms of the Alpha Epsilon Pi, Pi Kappa Alpha, and Psi Upsilon fraternities. Police also arrested three people who are accused of supplying the students with the drugs. Miron Sarzynski and his girlfriend, Megan Aspe, were previously rounded up in their East Village apartment, and Roberto Lagares was arrested in Bed-Stuy on Sunday. Miron Sarzynski faces additional kidnapping charges as a result of his interaction with an undercover officer. The NYPD operative was so effective in his role that Sarzynski asked him for an additional favor. According to police, he "was so intimidating to Mr. Sarzynski that he asked the undercover to help him kidnap and torture rival cocaine sellers. If a ransom wasn’t paid, Sarzynski wanted the rivals killed." If the guy they sent undercover with the drug wholesalers was big, scary, and beefy in order to blend in, it makes you wonder: What kind of guy did they send up to Columbia to be a student? October 14, 2009 Police Taser Mom!

Rush Limbaugh

October 15, 2009 Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh (pictured left) provided further details into his failed bid to become part owner of the St. Louis Rams football team. Limbaugh couched the issue as part of a "slippery slope" in American politics, calling himself a "mirror" that reflected a new hatred in "Obama's America." On October 13, Dave Checketts asked Rush to withdraw from the group pursuing the St. Louis Rams, to which Limbaugh responded that he would not drop out voluntarily and that Checketts would have to fire him and go public with the story. According to Limbaugh: "[President] Obama's America is quite possibly going to include the National Football League," Limbaugh said. "What I am going to be known as is a mirror," he said, reflecting the hatred that comes from "Obama's America" against conservatives and others who oppose his presidency. "But the hatred that I am able now to mirror for the country to see is all over the place. And I tell you with absolute sincerity: I am more sad for our country than I am for myself," Rush said. "These are dark days that we face." According to Dr. Boyce Watkins, Ph.D., ((pictured left) a Professor at Syracuse University and a leading African American Speaker,) “[t]he nationally syndicated radio personality Rush Limbaugh, a man who once called for drug addicts to be sent to prison, found himself hooked on OxyContin, which is considered a form of legalized heroin.” (Watkins 2009) Limbaugh first came under investigation by Palm Beach County State Attorney’s office in late 2003. The National Enquirer reported on allegations made by Limbaugh's housekeeper that he had purchased more than 30,000 prescription pain pills from her and her husband, including OxyContin, hydrocodone (Tylenol w/Codeine), and Locet, in 2001 and 2002. Limbaugh’s housekeeper, Wilma Cline, testified Limbaugh would drive three miles from his $23 million Palm Beach, Fla., estate to a Denny's parking lot so that she could hand over a cigar box concealing dozens of tiny prescription painkillers. Limbaugh, his housekeeper says, was often high on "hillbilly heroin." "Prescription drugs such as Xanax, Valium, and OxyContin, are easy to get on the Internet and on the black market."

Prosecutors alleged that Limbaugh obtained prescriptions from multiple doctors for the highly addictive drug OxyContin (pictured left). That drug is sometimes called "hillbilly heroin" because of its powerful nature and widespread use in rural areas. Dr. Drew Pinsky, an addiction specialist in Pasadena, California, said that if Limbaugh is addicted to OxyContin, "We're really talking about opiate addiction. The withdrawal is miserable and painful and it takes a long time to recover." The disease is insidious, Pinksy said. "It's a progressive disease, and when it progresses, the house of cards falls." In late April 2006, Rush Limbaugh, 55, -- a multimillionaire who lives part of the year in a waterfront mansion in Palm Beach -- avoided prosecution on allegations he purchased more than 30,000 prescription pain pills. In an aggressive, high-priced legal fight, his attorney challenged prosecutors' effort to obtain his medical records. Limbaugh’s attorney took that fight all the way to the Florida Supreme Court. Shortly thereafter, attorneys for Limbaugh announced that he had reached an agreement with the office of Palm Beach County State Attorney Barry Krischer that spared him jail time and a criminal conviction. Limbaugh surrendered at the Palm Beach County jail on a warrant formally charging that he withheld information from a medical practitioner. That charge is known as doctor shopping and is a third-degree felony. Limbaugh posted $3,000.00 bail and was released. Limbaugh later entered a plea of "not guilty." He agreed to pay the county $30,000 to cover the cost of its investigation and $30 a month in supervision costs. Limbaugh was only required to complete 18 months of drug treatment. The one count of doctor shopping was wiped off his record 18 months later. Limbaugh claimed he had a drug problem and entered a five-week drug treatment program in Arizona. He claimed that he started using the powerful painkillers because of a severe chronic back problem. The irony in this case is that Limbaugh long advocated tough punishment of drug offenders. In 1995, he famously said that drug users "ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up." It would be a shame if he got what he advocates for everybody else.


(Police arrest a man during the Tenderloin crackdown at Ellis and Jones streets, which is within 1,000 feet of a school.) “Let’s get it really clear,” San Francisco police Chief George Gascón said at a Tenderloin Station news conference. “We’re not talking about a war on poor people or a war on the homeless. We’re talking about a war on drugs and organized crime.” From Aug. 13 to Sept. 2, 2009 police arrested 302 people in the neighborhood. Most of the arrests were undercover narcotics stings, in which suspects sold crack-cocaine, heroin and OxyContin to police. San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris said she would seek enhancements, such as selling near schools, that would lengthen felons’ prison sentences. Suspects would be slapped with stay-away orders, too, she said. Erica Derryck, a spokeswoman for District Attorney Kamala Harris, says prosecutors will seek to add the extra years to the sentences of those arrested for dealing near schools as long as police officers secure the necessary evidence. That includes getting verbal confirmation after the arrest from the nearby school's principal that students are on campus. S.F. Tenderloin sting - Aug. 13 to Sept. 2, 2009
A handful of OxyContin taken from a drug bust suspect.
302: Total arrests; 261: Arrests on suspicion of drug sales to undercover officers; 242: Drug dealers arrested on suspicion of selling crack-cocaine, heroin, Oxycodone, Vicodin (hydrocodone), morphine, methadone; and 117: Total drug sales of suspects on parole/probation. Everybody - including the OxyContin suspect - remains in jail awaiting their preliminary hearing. Their bails have been set at more than $100,000 apiece. C.J. Note: We note that Rush Limbaugh bailed out at $3,000.00 (with allegations of possessing 30,000 illegal OxyContin pills) and paid an additional $30,030.00 to settle the case without conviction or felony record. However, every suspect arrested in this sting has a $100,000.00 bail. Their bail is higher than Rush's total fine! So you see Rush, in "Obama's America" men like you often escape punishment for crimes which sends men of color to prison with enhanced years!

Steve Nunn

October 14, 2009 FRANKFORT, Ky. – Steve Nunn (pictured left) said nothing in court. The politician who had lived a life of privilege hobnobbing with Kentucky's political elite wasn't at all pleased with the Fayette County jail where he is being held on a murder charge for allegedly gunning down his ex-girlfriend. Nunn, heir to one of the most famous names in Kentucky politics, wore a drab prison jumpsuit and a frown as his lawyer entered a not guilty plea on his behalf and asked for his release on bond. Judge Joseph Bouvier swiftly denied the request, leaving the man who spent his teenage years in the governor's mansion alongside his father, former Gov. Louie Nunn, under constant guard in a tiny cell for inmates deemed at risk of suicide. Despite some 15 years in the state legislature and an unsuccessful run for governor, Nunn had never been able to escape the long shadow of the father he once called "the John Wayne of Kentucky politics." Until now. Nunn has been front page news in Kentucky since the Sept. 11, 2009 murder. His every move garners headlines, every fresh detail a new story. In public, he was known as a compassionate politician with a warm smile and a zeal to help the disadvantaged. But evidence of a very different Steve Nunn has surfaced since Sept. 11, when Amanda Ross was shot to death outside her Lexington town house. Neighbors were awakened the morning of Sept. 11 by screams and gunshots. They saw the figure of a man in the pre-dawn darkness running away from the scene. Considering his previous domestic troubles, Lexington police put out an all-points bulletin looking for Nunn. His photo was distributed to security personnel at the state Capitol and other government buildings, including the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, where he had worked as deputy secretary until he was forced to resign in the aftermath of a domestic violence charge. Later that morning they found Nunn at his family's cemetery, weak and bleeding from self-inflicted wrist wounds. After a weekend in a Bowling Green hospital, Nunn was jailed first on charges of wanton endangerment for allegedly firing a gun in the vicinity of responding police and later on charges of murder. Public records show he may also have been prone to domestic attacks against his ex-girlfriend and even his own elderly father, who died in 2004 at age 79. In the wake of the murder charge, Nunn's attorney is asking for a psychological exam. Investigators pieced together disturbing details leading up to the day of the shooting, like the stop he made the day before at a monument company to ask that his gravestone be engraved with his date of death: Sept. 11. Friends and family members of Nunn and Ross struggle to explain what happened to Nunn in recent years. Ross, who was director of financial standards and examination at the Kentucky Department of Insurance, had expressed concerns about Nunn to co-workers, including Insurance Commissioner Sharon Clark. Clark recalled a chance encounter between Ross and Nunn in the parking lot of a Frankfort store on Sept. 9, 2009 that left Ross shaken. "She was crying," Clark said. "She was shaking. She was obviously very stressed." Clark said she allowed Ross to go home early on the day of the encounter, and called her later to see how she was doing. Clark said Ross told her: "'Sharon, he's going to kill me.'" Nunn's ex-wife, Tracey Damron of Pikeville, said the longtime state lawmaker began to change after the death of his father. She said Nunn seemed to sink into depression. "He was just so cold, so distant, so not Steve," Damron said. "Something dark happened to Steve; I know that for sure." Larry Forgy, a GOP stalwart in Kentucky who has known Nunn for more than 40 years, chafes at claims that the death of the elder Nunn somehow changed the younger. "We've all lost our fathers, or, if you haven't, you will," Forgy said. "That event doesn't alter the rest of your life. The fact is this is not just insanity. It's idiocy." A letter filed away in a dusty old court file in Metcalfe County suggests the father and son didn't have the best of relationships. Louie Nunn warned his son in the undated letter that he must stop physically abusing him and other family members or face prosecution and public embarrassment. The letter was an exhibit in the 1994 divorce case of Louie Nunn and his wife, Beula. "The mental anguish with you physically attacking me is more than I need," Louie Nunn wrote. "Therefore, I respectfully request you never attack me physically again. Neither do I intend to take any more verbal abuse from you." Louie Nunn urged his son to destroy the letter after reading it. "I would not want anyone else to know I had been physically hurt and abused by you," he said. He signed the letter "With love, hurt and deep sadness thru tears, your father."

Jeff Skilling

October 14, 2009 WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court said Tuesday it will take up former Enron CEO Jeff Skilling's (pictured left) appeal of his convictions for his role in the collapse of the energy giant, accepting another high-profile challenge to a favorite tool of prosecutors in white-collar and public corruption cases. Skilling's appeal stems from his convictions in 2006 on 19 counts of conspiracy, securities fraud, insider trading and lying to auditors involving the 2001 collapse of Enron. The justices already are entertaining similar claims from former newspaper magnate Conrad Black (Jew) and a former Alaska lawmaker ensnared in a public corruption scandal. At issue in all three cases is prosecutors' use of the federal "honest services" fraud statute, a 28-word law that critics call vague and unfair. Among the federal charges against former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is an "honest services" count, while his predecessor, former Gov. George Ryan was convicted of it. The law makes it a crime to deprive shareholders or the public of "the intangible right to honest services." Former federal prosecutor Peter Zeidenberg (Jew) said the court probably will rein in the use of the law. "The betting is it's going to get a bit of a haircut," said Zeidenberg, who prosecuted some public officials for honest services fraud. Zeidenberg, now a partner at the DLA Piper law firm in Washington, acknowledged that it is easier to prove honest services fraud than bribery, which typically requires demonstration that some promise was made or action was taken in exchange for money. "I think a lot of defense attorneys would say it's a refuge for prosecutions that otherwise don't measure up," he said. Honest services charges have been used regularly in public corruption cases stemming from the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal, including in an ongoing trial of a former Abramoff associate. A few blocks from the Supreme Court, Kevin Ring's defense lawyers told the judge overseeing the trial that the high court had agreed to hear Skilling's appeal. Skilling, serving a 24-year prison term, says he was improperly convicted. He says prosecutors did not show that he personally benefited from his allegedly fraudulent actions. Federal courts are split over whether prosecutors must prove a defendant's private gain to convict under the law. Black, the former chairman and chief executive of the Hollinger International media company, is arguing a different point. He says the $5.5 million that he and other executives received from a Hollinger subsidiary was money that they were owed. They can't be convicted of fraud, Black says, when they did no harm to the company. Skilling also is claiming that he did not receive a fair trial in Houston following Enron's collapse, describing "blistering daily attacks" in the media. "Skilling was pronounced guilty throughout Houston long before trial," his lawyer, Daniel Petrocelli, said in his court filing. A ruling in his favor on the fair trial claim probably would result in a new trial. The effect of the ruling on honest services is unclear since Skilling was convicted on other charges as well, including securities fraud. "We are so relieved," Petrocelli told The Associated Press Tuesday "We've been waiting almost three years now since Jeff was convicted. You know, the stain of the Enron story has been hard to overcome. And the Supreme Court has decided it's going to give us a full, frank and fair hearing." Petrocelli said Skilling's legal team spoke with the former Enron CEO Tuesday. "He's in tears, as many of us are. We cannot wait to go before the Supreme Court and argue our case," he said. No date has been set for the argument, but it will be held early in 2010. In January, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans upheld the convictions, but ordered Skilling's prison term reduced. Skilling is the highest-ranking executive to be punished for the accounting tricks and shady business deals that led to the loss of thousands of jobs, more than $60 billion in Enron stock value and more than $2 billion in employee pension plans after the company imploded in 2001. Company founder Kenneth Lay also was convicted of conspiracy, fraud and other charges, but his convictions were vacated after he died less than two months later of heart disease. In 2005, the Supreme Court overturned the conviction of Arthur Andersen LLP, Enron's auditor, on charges of destroying Enron-related documents. In June, the justices sided with former Enron executive F. Scott Yeager in a ruling that makes it unlikely he can be tried a second time on charges related to the company's collapse. The case is Skilling v. U.S., 08-1394. C.J. Note: We note that this same court upheld a fifty (50) year-to-life sentence for a California man convicted under the "Three-Strikes" law for stealing ninety dollars ($90) worth of Vhs tapes (an obsolete item) from K-mart. Kenneth Lay, F. Scott Yeager and Jeff Skilling stole billions from the government, employees and shareholders. Thousands were left without pensions after decades of service to Enron. Thousands more lost their jobs, homes and qualities of life.
