HATE CRIME: Three Black Men Arrested in Attack on White MetroLink Rider in St. Louis, MO

Three men have been arrested, a 21-year-old, a 15-year-old and another person is in custody, following the unprovoked assault on a MetroLink commuter in St. Louis. Mo. The incident occurred last week as a white man was minding his own business on his commute home when he was assaulted by two men who police say had made reference to Michael Brown, the teen who was killed at the hands of Ferguson police that began the fraudulent movement of “hands up, don’t shoot”. So in other words, these black men purposely, willfully and with full intention attacked and assaulted a white man because of this color. That sounds like a hate crime to me. Where is Attorney General Eric Holder running to this white commuters defense of his civil rights?

Don’t all lives matter?

Police have three people in custody in an attack last week in which a MetroLink rider was beaten after one of several men asked him about the Michael Brown “situation.”

A police source confirmed Monday evening that a 21-year-old and a 15-year-old have been arrested and another person is in custody who is cooperating with the investigation.

A video posted to Facebook appears to show the attack March 23 on the 43-year-old man, and MetroLink released surveillance images of suspects.

Police said the victim, who is white, was punched and kicked by three black men, one of whom had made the reference to the teen killed in Ferguson by a police officer Aug. 9.

Just a note to the 3 arrested individuals … Officer Darren Wilson was never indicted by a grand jury in the shooting of the so-called Gentle Giant, store robbing punk Michael Wilson and Attorney General Eric Holder dropped all civil rights charges against him as well. Hands Up, Don’t Shoot never happened.

Anjelica “AJ” Hadsell Missing Since 3/2/15

Virginia police are searching Sunday for a university student missing since March 2, while the woman’s father says he was arrested on charges unrelated to his daughter’s disappearance after a lengthy interrogation.

Norfolk police haven’t ruled out foul play in the disappearance of Anjelica (AJ) Hadsell, 18, who vanished nearly three weeks ago while home on spring break from Longwood University, where she is a freshman.

Her father, Wesley Hadsell, told WAVY-TV Saturday that he was arrested after being questioned by police for more than 15 hours. He said he was charged with obstructing justice, possession of ammunition after a felony and breaking and entering.

“They asked me where she was at,” Hadsell, 36, told the station from the Norfolk County Jail. “I know, give them the answers. I can bring AJ home. Their words last night (Friday).”

WAVY – Missing teen’s father arrested on six charges:

“I couldn’t sit a minute away from where my daughter may have been,” Hadsell said from the Norfolk City Jail.

Hadsell calls himself a changed man, and calls the disappearance of his daughter “overwhelming.”

“I want my daughter home,” said Hadsell. “That’s what I want and that’s all I want. Anybody who wants to say something about that or get in the way of that, then I’m sorry. So what some ways are unorthodox. I didn’t have anything to do with her disappearance. I don’t know where she’s at.”

United Airlines Flight 1074 Grounded After Unruly Passenger Rushed the Cockpit … Passengers Restrain Man

Jihadists in the cargo hold … Terrorism or just a mental case?

A United Airlines plane en route to Denver was forced to return to Dulles International Airport in Washington, DC after a passenger became unruly and rushed the cockpit. However, in a post 9-11 world passengers will no longer tolerate this type of behavior as the out of control man was tackled and restrained by passengers (Picture). No passengers were injured and no weapons were found. It appears that the unruly passenger was simply crazy. However, according to one passenger the man said, “At one point when his head was down he said there were jihadists in the cargo hold and he did say jihad a couple times.”

A United Airlines flight was forced to return to Washington, D.C., after a passenger failed to comply with crew instructions, a spokesperson for the airline said today.

Flight 1074 en route to Denver returned to Dulles International Airport shortly after takeoff late Monday. The pilots told air traffic controllers that the passenger became violent but was restrained by passengers, according to LiveATC.net.

“He ran forward towards the cockpit and he is being restrained by passengers,” said one of the pilots. “Cockpit is secure and we would like to return to the airport and have the authorities meet him.”

United Airlines flight turns around due to unruly passenger.

The pilots told air traffic controllers that the passenger started acting violently but was later subdued by other passengers, according to LiveATC.net, which provides audio of air traffic control transmissions.

“He ran forward towards the cockpit, and he is being restrained by passengers,” one of the pilots said. “Cockpit is secure, and we would like to return to the airport and have the authorities meet him.”

A cell phone video shows the man, bruised on his face, held down by other passengers.

“Don’t move,” one passenger says. “You’re OK. We’re going to get you off this plane, buddy.”

The plane landed at Dulles around 10:40 p.m. ET, said Kimberly GIbbs, a spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority.

“A passenger was removed from the plane and transported to a local hospital for evaluation,” she said.

Robert Durst Arrested in New Orleans on an Extradition Warrant out of Los Angeles, CA For the 2000 Murder of Susan Berman

 Robert Durst has been arrested in New Orleans, Louisiana on an extradition warrant out if Los Angeles, California for the 2000 murder if Susan Berman. Durst was arrested on Canal Street by FBI agents just before 11:00pm Saturday at a J.W. Marriott hotel in New Orleans.  The 71 year old Robert Durst was never charged in connection with the unsolved 2000 murder of Berman in the Hollywood section of Los Angeles. Berman was killed as New York authorities prepared to question her in the 1982 disappearance of Durst’s wife, Kathie. Robert Durst has recently been the subject of the HBO true-crime series “The Jinx” about his suspected involvement in three murders. Durst was also tried for the fall 2001 murder of neighbor Morris Black, who was found dismembered in a Galveston, Texas, bay. He was acquitted in 2003 via a self-defense claim.

Robert Durst

Durst was arrested by FBI agents just before 11:00pm Saturday at a J.W. Marriott hotel in New Orleans on a Los Angeles warrant for the murder of Susan Berman 15 years ago, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said. FBI agents say Durst had registered under an alias and paid for the room in cash. Fake documents were found in his possession. The FBI believed he would flee, possibly to Cuba.

Berman’s body was discovered in her West Los Angeles home on Christmas Eve 2000. Since that time the Los Angeles Police Department’s Robbery Homicide Division has conducted an investigation into Ms. Berman’s death.

“We are relieved and also grateful to everyone who assisted in the arrest of Robert Durst,” Durst’s brother Douglas said in a statement to ABC News. “We hope he will finally be held accountable for all he has done.”

Durst, 71, has never been charged in connection with the unsolved 2000 murder of Berman in the Hollywood section of Los Angeles, who was killed as New York authorities prepared to question her in the 1982 disappearance of his wife, Kathie. As a result of investigative leads and additional evidence that has come to light in the past year, investigators have identified Robert Durst as the person responsible for Ms. Berman’s death.

Following the arrest of Robert Durst, his brother, Douglas Durst, who now runs the family real-estate empire, released a statement Sunday afternoon saying: “We are relieved and also grateful to everyone who assisted in the arrest of Robert Durst. We hope he will finally be held accountable for all he has done.”

VIDEO – NBC News

New York Times – On HBO’s ‘The Jinx,’ Robert Durst Says He ‘Killed Them All’.

On Sunday night, in the final moments of the final episode of a six-part HBO documentary about him, “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst,” Mr. Durst seemed to veer toward a confession that could lift the shroud of mystery that surrounds the deaths of three people over the course of three decades.

“What the hell did I do?” Mr. Durst whispers to himself in an unguarded moment caught on a microphone he wore during filming. “Killed them all, of course.”

In the years since his wife, Kathleen Durst, disappeared in 1982 after spending the weekend at the couple’s country home in Westchester County, Mr. Durst has bounced in and out of jail for other crimes, cut ties with his family, remarried, and sued his brother for a $65 million share of the family fortune. Through it all, he has maintained his innocence in the disappearance of his wife, while also denying any role in the 2000 death of the Los Angeles friend, Susan Berman.

UPDATE I: Does this letter implicate Robert Durst in neighbor’s murder? Handwriting and misspelling on anonymous note about body VERY similar to letter billionaire sent to friend.

The note read ‘BEVERLEY HILLS POLICE – 1527 BENEDICT CANYON CADAVER’ – it has distinctive block capital lettering and the word Beverly Hills is misspelled.

A note written by Robert Durst, scion of one of New York’s largest real estate empires, may hold the key to the murder of his neighbor.

Durst, a billionaire, was questioned but not charged in the mysterious death of his first wife Kathleen McCormack in 1982.

The 71-year-old was then questioned in 2000 after the death of his longtime friend and elderly neighbor Susan Berman, shortly before she was to be questioned if she knew about Kathleen’s disappearance.
