Pilot Arrested After Small Aircraft Lands Near Capitol (Update: Man Identified as 61 Year Old Doug Hughes)

BIZARRE … HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN IN A POST-9-11 WORLD?

A small single man aircraft flew through restricted airspace in Washington, DC and landed on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol. The pilot was arrested after making what he called an act of civil disobedience and a protest against campaign finance reform. WHAT THE HELL? According to authorities, no weapons were found on the plane and a bomb squad found nothing hazardous on the aircraft. With all the screw-ups lately by the Secret Service in allowing individuals onto the White House grounds, maybe some one would like to explain this one?

HOW IN THE WORLD DID THIS FLYING GO-CART, GYROPLANE, MAKE IT THRU RESTRICTED AIRSPACE AND THIS CLOSE TO THE CAPITAL WITHOUT GETTING BLOWN OUT OF THE SKY?

A Florida mailman bent on making a public statement about corruption in Congress flew a small one-man aircraft through restricted airspace and landed on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol Wednesday, the latest in a recent series of startling security breaches at the seat of government in Washington.

No weapons were found on the plane and the man stated he was making an act of civil disobedience. But the sight of his low and slow-flying aircraft approaching and landing by Washington’s most famous landmarks prompted a brief security lockdown at the Capitol and raised broader concerns about the effectiveness of security measures in an area that home to all three branches of government.

He described the plane as “a 250-pound ultralight gyroplane,” a type of aircraft often called a “gyrocopter,” made from kits and propelled by a small motor with room for only a pilot on board. “I’m the pilot,” he wrote.

“What’s unique and newsworthy is the delivery,” he wrote to the TV station. “I’m going to land my gyro on the front lawn of the Capitol Building at the top end of the National Mall. The issue is important enough to defy the no-fly zone and risk life and limb, and my freedom in pursuit of an honest government that represents the people.”

On the website, he wrote: “This isn’t my regular route. I’m a mailman in Riverview, FL – near Tampa. I’m 61 years old, married, with four children. I flew with my father who was a private pilot, fixed wing and almost helicopter. I’ve been flying gyrocopters for over a year.”

Argentinian Judge Issues Arrest Warrant for 2013 Attack on Photographer

It looks like the Biebs can scratch Argentina off his world tour list …

Judge Alberto Julio Banos ordered the “immediate detention” for singer  Justin Bieber for the 2013 attack on photographer’ in Argentina.  The singer is accused of failing to respond to a court summons. Justin Bieber is accused of sending his bodyguards to attack photographer Diego Pesoa outside a Buenos Aires nightclub.  Under Argentine law, Bieber would face from one month to six years in prison if convicted on a charge of causing injuries. I think its fair to say that The Biebs wont be visiting Argentina any time soon.

An Argentine judge has issued an arrest warrant for Justin Bieber on Friday, saying the singer failed to respond to summons related to allegations he ordered bodyguards to attack a photographer in 2013.

Judge Alberto Julio Banos ordered the “immediate detention” of Bieber and bodyguards Hugo Alcides Hesny and Terrence Reche Smalls.

An email sent to a Bieber representative was not immediately returned.

Bieber is accused of sending the bodyguards to attack photographer Diego Pesoa outside a Buenos Aires nightclub. Bieber never returned to Argentina to respond to questions about the incident.

Under Argentine law, Bieber would face from one month to six years in prison if convicted on a charge of causing injuries.

Now if only we could get a judge in the United States to do the same.

South Carolina Officer Michael T. Slager Charged With Murder of 50 Year Old Walter L. Scott (VIDEO)

White South Carolina police officer charged with the murder of black man …

33 year old police officer, Michael T. Slager, has been charged with murder of 50 year old Walter L. Scott after  a video surfaced Tuesday of the officer shooting the unarmed black man as he tried to run away. The incident occurred in North Charleston, SC this past Saturday after a motor vehicle traffic stop. Officer Slager pulled Scott over, who was driving a Mercedes-Benz with a broken taillight. According to the police reports, Scott ran away following the stop. The VIDEO below shows officer Slager firing 8 shots at Scott as he tried to run away. At issue is the VIDEO shows a much different story than the police report that was filed.  The FBI opened a civil rights investigation Tuesday after video surfaced.

 A white police officer in North Charleston, S.C., was charged with murder on Tuesday after a video surfaced showing him shooting in the back and killing an apparently unarmed black man while the man ran away.

The officer, Michael T. Slager, 33, said he had feared for his life because the man had taken his stun gun in a scuffle after a traffic stop on Saturday. A video, however, shows the officer firing eight times as the man, Walter L. Scott, 50, fled. The North Charleston mayor announced the state charges at a news conference Tuesday evening.

North Charleston officer faces murder charge after video shows him shooting man in back

The U.S. Department of Justice said in a statement that FBI investigators would work with the State Law Enforcement Division, which typically investigates officer-involved shootings in South Carolina, and the state’s attorney general to investigate any civil rights violations in Scott’s death. North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey said during a news conference that Slager had made a “bad decision.”

“When you’re wrong, you’re wrong,” Summey said. “If you make a bad decision, don’t care if you’re behind the shield or just a citizen on the street, you have to live by that decision.”

The 9th Circuit Solicitor’s Office will prosecute the felony murder charge. If convicted, Slager would face a penalty of 30 years to life in prison.

Two New York City Women (Noelle Velentzas & Asia Siddiqui) Arrested in Connection with Home Grown Terrorist Bomb Plot

BECAUSE ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE …

Two New York City women, 28 year old Noelle Velentzas and 31 year old Asia Siddiqui, were arrested at their Queens homes early Thursday during a police and FBI sting operation. It is reported that the two women were influenced by ISIS and the Boston Marathon bombing.  According to the complaint, the women “researched and acquired some of the components of a car bomb, like the one used in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing; a fertilizer bomb, like the one used in the 1995 bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City; and a pressure cooker bomb, like the one used in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.” The two female terrorists were reportedly going to attack police amnd military funerals.

The Washington Times:

The disturbing allegations were contained in court papers describing the latest homegrown terror plot thwarted by the FBI and the New York Police Department.

Noelle Velentzas and Asia Siddiqui were arrested at their Queens homes early Thursday following a sting operation using an undercover officer wearing a wire. Officer searching the homes recovered items including three gas tanks, a pressure cooker, fertilizer, handwritten notes on the recipes for bomb making and jihadist literature, court papers say.

Velentzas, had been “obsessed with pressure cookers since the Boston Marathon attacks in 2013” and made jokes alluding to explosives after receiving one as a gift, according to a criminal complaint citing one of the secret recordings made by the undercover who managed to befriend the pair.

The arrests show U.S. authorities “are committed to doing everything in our ability to detect, disrupt, and deter attacks by homegrown violent extremists,” U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch said in a statement. “As alleged, the defendants in this case carefully studied how to construct an explosive device to launch an attack on the homeland.”

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?

VIDEO of ASSAULT

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.
