Mexican Drug Lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Arrested in Mazatlán, Mexico by Mexican Marines, US Marshals and DEA
Mexican drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, was arrested Saturday morning at 6:40 am, February 22, 2014 at a resort in the port of Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico. Guzman is the head of the Sinaloa Cartel and one of the #1 drug kingpins in Mexico. Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam said the arrest occurred without a shot being fired. He was caught with an unidentified woman. The 56 year old Guzman had been eluding capture for more than a dozen years. Mexican Marines, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the US Marshals Service carried out the joint operation.
The Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, head of the Sinaloa cartel, was arrested on Saturday February 22nd at 6 am, inside a resort in the port of Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico. His capture was the result of an operation coordinated by Mexican and U.S. authorities, as it was informed this morning by The Associated Press.
A senior U.S. official said Guzman was captured alive in the city of Mazatlán, a tourist destination on the Pacific coast of Mexico. The official, who was not authorized to speak about the arrest, gave information on condition of anonymity.
He had been on the lam since escaping from prison in 2001, and no one — that we know of — came close to catching the drug lord who regularly appears on Forbes magazine list of most powerful people.
The rumor was that with that kind of money, he could be hiding anywhere in the world.
In the end, he was caught just 140 miles from the city of Culiacan, the home base for his Sinaloa drug cartel.
In Chicago, where the city’s crime commission last year named Guzman its Public Enemy No. 1 — a designation originally crafted for Al Capone — authorities praised the arrest. Chicago is among the major destinations of the cartel’s drug flow.
“The arrest of Chapo Guzman is significant,” police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said in a statement. “This is a victory, but we know the tentacles of his cartel still exist and much more work remains to be done. Demand for narcotics will still remain, so we will continue to partner with the DEA as they fight international drug trade, and we will remain focused on our efforts to eliminate the factors that drive violence in our city.”
From New York to Chicago, Texas to San Diego, Guzman and his lieutenants are named in indictments for marijuana, cocaine and heroin trafficking, as well as racketeering, money laundering, kidnapping and conspiracy to commit murder.

This further emphasizes the point, nothing good comes from renting a J-Lo movie …
27 year old Kayla Michelle Finley arrested and charged with not returning a video tape that she rented in 2005. Making matters worse, the rental video store, Dalton Video, isn’t even in business anymore. Wait, imagine being arrested for not returning a J-Lo film, Monster-in-Law? How does one get arrested for something like this? How much could the tape or fine actually be worth? My we have come a long way in America, pot legal, but you can be arrested for not returning a video. Thankfully, technology has changed in how movies are rented these days. Finley was arrested, and spent Thursday night in jail until her bond hearing Friday morning. A judge issued a $2,000 personal recognizance bond Friday morning, and she was released. Who thinks this is a tad bit extreme and a waste of law enforcements time and money?

School Bus Driver Cathy Goetz Charged With Assault, Menacing & Child Endangering of an 8 Year Old Autistic Boy
This is truly troubling and disturbing …
43 year old Cathy Goetz, an Ashland City, Ohio Schools bus driver has been suspended without pay and charged with assault, menacing and child endangering of an 8 year old autistic boy. The disturbing crime was caught on the bus video on January 17, 2014. Goetz is seen smacking the boy as he continuously screams. After the boy is hit by the bus driver, he is heard threatening to kill her. She then called bus dispatcher, who called 911. When the police arrived Goetz told the officer that the boy had threatened her, hit her and kicked her, but conveniently failed to mention the fact that she slapped the boy and grabbed him around the collar. Goetz also claims she did not know the boy had autism.
Really, where should we begin? We have a bus driver who has no idea the make up of the children she is responsible for driving and being in her care. We have a bus driver who thinks it is perfectly okay to slap and assault 8 year olds. We have a bus driver who thinks it is perfectly fine to lie to police and tell them the truth of what actually happened. And we have a bus driver who still after having video and audio evidence of her crime still pleading not guilty.
Warning: VIDEO is disturbing
An Ashland City Schools bus driver has been suspended without pay and is facing criminal charges after she was caught on video slapping an 8-year-old-boy.
The incident happened on January 17, and the video from an on-board camera shows driver Cathy Goetz interacting with the boy, who was upset when he got on the bus.
According to the police report, the 43-year-old told investigators she did not know the child was “autistic,” and that when he started screaming, she tried to get him to stop.
The video shows that the boy continued to scream, and Goetz eventually stopped the bus and confronted him.
She is seen in the video smacking the boy, and he is then heard threatening to kill her.
Goetz then called her bus dispatcher, who called 911.
However, VIDEOS can be a b*tch, can’t they? When the police eventually were able to access and watched the video of what really took placer, Cathy Goetz was charged with assault, menacing and child endangering.
KNOCK OUT GAME Continues: ‘Knock That White Boy [Cracker] Out’ … Arrests Made After Mob of Black Teens Attack Disabled White Vet … Hate Crime!!!
Just curious … is it so hard for the media to report a crime accurately … not once in any of the written articles do they reference specifically that this was a black on white crime and namely mention a mob of black teens assaulted a white man. You have to watch the VIDEO to hear the reporter say it.
Arrests have been made in the “knock out game” assault of a white, disabled veteran in Cleveland, Ohio. A mob of black teens harassed, attacked, robbed and taunted with racial slurs their white victim near Public Square. Matthew Robinson was riding the RTA’s Healthline when a group of black teen punks began harassing him and followed him off the bus and down the street to 6th and Euclid. Robinson said that the mob hurled threats and racial slurs at him as they were saying, ‘Knock that boy out!’ ‘White boy.’ ‘Cracker.’ They were saying, ‘Knock that white boy out.’” Hmm … No hate crime here, eh? Three suspects have been arrested by Cleveland and RTA police, Kenneth Matthews, Ronald Reid Williams and an unnamed 16 year old female minor. The unnamed girl had actually filmed the attack with her cell phone, and the video was still on her phone at the time of her apprehension. One of the two teens has also been charged in two other robberies similar to this one. Good grief, just send this punk to prison and do society a favor before he kills some one.
Sadly, not one person stepped into help this man. Not one. Let’s see if the Cleveland DA’s office has the CO-JONES to charge these punks with a “hate crime”.
Matthew Robinson, Disabled Army Veteran, Attacked By group of black teens in Cleveland, OH
A disabled Army vet spoke out about the latest attack that happened Friday, Feb. 7, 2014.
Matthew Robinson told our Ed Gallek he was riding RTA’s Healthline when six to eight teenagers surrounded him on the bus, and then started following him.
Then, he said they attacked, took his stuff, and videotaped what they were doing.
The incident went down at 6th and Euclid, and the crowd scattered when cops showed up.
Robinson told 19 Action News, “What they were saying was, ‘Knock that boy out!’ ‘White boy.’ ‘Cracker.’ They were saying, ‘Knock that white boy out.’”
The victim said not only did the group taunt him with racial slurs, they also videotaped the incident.
Cleveland Police hustled and found three of the suspects running from the scene.
They apprehended an 18 and 19-year-old guy, plus a 16 year-old-girl who had the video on her phone.
Body of Missing Virginia Police Capt. Kevin Quick Found; 3 More Arrested in Officer’s Murder (Halisi Uhuru, Anthony Stokes Jr. & Leslie Casterlow)(Update: Suspects Had Gang Ties, Prior Criminal History)
Three more individuals have been arrested in the death of Waynesboro Police reserve Captain Kevin Quick. Halisi Uhuru, Leslie Casterlow and Anthony Stokes are accused of killing Kevin Quick during an abduction early this week. Quick’s body was found next to a road in Goochland County, about 60 miles west of Richmond, on Thursday afternoon. An autopsy has confirmed that found human remains are those of a Waynesboro reserve police officer who was reported missing a week ago.

Three people were arrested after the body of a missing Virginia police captain was found dumped on alongside a rural road, according to a report.
The trio of suspects — Halisi Uhuru, Leslie Casterlow and Anthony Stokes — are accused of killing Waynesboro Police reserve Captain Kevin Quick during an abduction early this week.
“Unfortunately this case transitioned from an investigation into a disappearance, into a death investigation, and as a result we are still very actively pursuing new leads,” Geller said Friday afternoon, a week after Quick disappeared.
Late Thursday night police made more arrests in connection with the case; two men and a woman were arrested. Police believe additional charges could be made, and possibly additional suspects charged.
Forty-nine-year-old Leslie Hope Casterlow, of 10900 block Wild Ginger Cir. in Manassas, 31-year-old Anthony Darnell Stokes Jr, of the 10000 block Portsmouth Rd. in Manassas and 22-year-old Halisi Uhuru, of the 1700 block Franklin Tpke. in Danville, were charged with Principle 2nd Degree Capital Murder During Abduction.
This charge is different from Capital Murder in that it is not punishable by death penalty but is punishable by life in prison.
The Commonwealth’s Attorney has also added a felony count of Gang Participation for each individual arrested Thursday, though investigators would not go into detail.
What a shock, some suspects involved in the death of Kevin Quick had a criminal history and had been let out on good behavior. Gert Wright, also known as Halisi Uhuru, was let out of prison early. Wright’s family wrote letters to the state requesting that he get out early, saying “Gert is destined for Greatness.” Yeah, this punk was destined for murder.
Court documents reveal a disturbing criminal history for two men arrested in connection with Waynesboro police captain Kevin Quick’s death.
The case has transitioned from an investigation into a disappearance, into an official death investigation. Late Thursday night police arrested three more people in connection with the case; two men and a woman.
Leslie Hope Casterlow, age 49, of Manassas, Anthony Darnell Stokes Jr., age 31, of Manassas and Halisi Uhuru, age 22, of Danville, were charged with Principle 2nd Degree Capital Murder During Abduction.
This charge is different from Capital Murder in that it is not punishable by death penalty but is punishable by life in prison.
The Commonwealth’s Attorney has also added a felony count of Gang Participation for each individual, though investigators would not go into detail.
The trio are being held at the Henrico County Jail West and will be in court on Monday.
A CBS 6 investigation revealed that 31-year-old Anthony Stokes and 22-year-old Gert Wright, also known as Halisi Uhuru, were recently released from prison.
In fact, 31-year-old Anthony Stokes spent 12 years, nearly half of his life in prison for crimes he committed when he was just 19. He was convicted on possession of a weapon, robbery, kidnapping and use of a firearm charges.
UPDATE III: Sixth suspect named in disappearance and death of Waynesboro officer Kevin Quick.
Police made another arrest Sunday in the disappearance and death of a missing reserve police officer from a small town in Virginia.
Anthony L. White, 22, of Mineral, Va., was taken into custody without incident in Louisa County and charged with one felony count of gang participation, according to Virginia State Police.

5 Day Old Baby Kayden Powell Missing Since 2/6/14 in Beloit, WI (VIDEO) … Police Believe an Abduction (Update: Baby Found Alive in Iowa)(Update: Kristin Smith Arrested on Kidnapping Charges)
WHERE IS 5 DAY OLD KAYDEN POWELL?
5 day old Kayden Powell has been missing since 4:35 a.m. Thursday, February 6, 2014 in Beloit, Wisconsin. The authorities were called Thursday morning by the baby’s mother, 18 year old Brianna Marshall, who woke to find her baby missing. 5 day old Kayden J. Powell was missing from his bassinet in the room where she was sleeping at 836 E. Homeland Court (MAP). According to tax records, the residence is owned by Shirley J. Bennett, the baby’s great-grandmother. Brianna Marshall and the baby’s father, Bruce Powell, 23, were at the residence at the time the baby was reported missing, along with Bennett and Marshall’s brother.
Kayden Powell was born at Beloit Memorial Hospital. He is African American, 20 inches long, 6 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
The FBI is helping local authorities search for a 5-day-old baby, who was reported missing by his mother at 4:35 a.m. Thursday.
“The FBI is here, the Division of Criminal Investigation is in route, and we’ve got assistance from the city of Beloit (Police Department) and Rock County Sheriff’s Office,” said Steve Kopp, town of Beloit police chief.
The Rock County Sheriff’s Office has sent 16 people to the scene, including all members of its detective bureau, all members of its special investigations unit, two patrol deputies and a commander, Chief Deputy Barb Barrington-Tillman said.
The authorities were called Thursday morning by Brianna Marshall, 18, who woke and found her 5-day-old baby, Kayden J. Powell, missing from his bassinet in the room where she was sleeping at 836 E. Homeland Court, he said.
UPDATE I: (WIFR Updates) Police Press Conference – VIDEO
Kopp said Marshall reported the incident as an apparent abduction.
Police in Iowa took the baby’s aunt into custody later Thursday for questioning. She had been visiting the residence at 836 E. Homeland Court and left at about 1:30 a.m. Thursday. That was about the last time people at the residence saw the baby, Kopp said.
Kopp said police reached the woman on her cellphone Thursday as she was driving near West Branch, Iowa, which is along Interstate 80 about 180 miles southwest of Beloit. Police asked the woman to pull over. An officer took the woman into custody after learning she had an outstanding Texas warrant accusing her of fraud, Kopp said.
The baby was not with the woman when police found her, and the baby had not been located as of Thursday afternoon, Kopp said. It’s not clear why the aunt left early Thursday morning. She apparently is a Colorado resident and was visiting after the baby was born, Kopp said.
The woman was being questioned along with four other people who had been staying at the residence Wednesday night, Kopp said.
Marshall and the baby’s father, Bruce Powell, 23, of Beloit, were at the residence at the time the baby was reported missing, along with Bennett and Marshall’s brother. They were among those being questioned. They were cooperative, and the parents were “very distraught and upset,” Kopp said.
The parents had been staying at the residence because a person who lives with them at their Beloit home was ill and they didn’t want to expose the newborn baby to the sick person, Kopp said.
Anyone with information on this incident can contact the Town of Beloit Police Department at 608-757-2244, or Greater Beloit Crimestoppers at 608-362-7463.

The woman, Kristin Smith, could face life in prison if convicted of snatching her half-sister’s newborn, Kayden Powell.
U.S. Attorney John Vaudreuil filed the charge against Smith on Friday afternoon, hours after the child was found alive near an Iowa gas station half a mile from where Smith was arrested
