Elmendorf, TX Police Chief Michael Pimentel Shot to Death During Traffic Stop … DOUBLE STANDARD: Where’s the MSM Outrage?
WHERE’S THE WALL TO WALL MSM COVERAGE, WHERE’S AL SHARTTON, WHERE’S JESSE JACKSON? WHERE IS THE CALL FROM BARACK OBAMA TO HIS FAMILY?
64 year old Elmendorf, TX Police Chief Michael Pimentel was shot multiple times during a traffic stop on Saturday and later died of his wounds at University Hospital in San Antonio, TX. Police Chief Pimentel was shot by 24 year old Joshua Manuel Lopez, who had an active misdemeanor warrant for graffiti at the time he was pulled over. AND YOU WONDER WHY POLICE OFFICERS REACT THE WAY THEY DO WHEN THEY PULL SOME ONE OVER OR ARE CONFRONTED? Joshua Manuel Lopez had only a misdemeanor warrant for graffiti but yet was armed with a gun and shot and killed a police officer. Joshua Manuel Lopez was arrested and taken into custody. Lopez faces capital murder charges and is being held in the Bexar County Adult Detention Center on a $1 million bond.
Take a good look America as to the dangers that police officers are confronted every day with every possible encounter they have. But the MSM, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, AG Eric Holder and President Barack Obama are more concerned with fanning the flames of racism and race baiting, rather than honoring those police officers who protect and serve. You will only hear from an agenda driven media and opportunists about how police officer Darren Wilson assassinated Michael Brown. God forbid they honor individuals like Police Chief Michael Pimentel who had a long career of protecting and serving. I wonder how many people the White House is sending to Michael Pimentel’s funeral?

It was August 15, 2006 when Liz and husband David Carroll said on that 3 year old Marcus Fiesel disappeared in an Anderson Township, OH park. This sparking a search by thousands of volunteers that lasted several days. Marcus’ mom Liz Caroll tearfully begged people to help find her son, all the while she knew exactly what had happened and what she did to this poor child.
Marcus Fiesel, RIP
The death of 3-year-old Marcus Fiesel, who authorities said was killed by his foster parents in 2006, will be featured on “Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall” 10 p.m. Sunday on the Investigation Discovery channel.
The one-hour show includes an interview with Liz Carroll, Marcus’ foster mother, who is serving a life prison sentence after her conviction in a Clermont County Common Pleas Court in 2007.
Investigation Discovery, one of the sister Discovery Channel networks, can be found in Greater Cincinnati on Time Warner Channels 1139 (HD) and 139, and on Northern Kentucky Time Warner Channels 948 (HD) and 471, and Cincinnati Fioptics Channels 675 (HD) and 275.
What really happened to Marcus as Liz Carroll was providing crocodile tears …
Liz and David Carroll wrapped Marcus in a blanket, bound him with duct tape and left him in a hot closet without food and water while they went out of town for a weekend family reunion, prosecutors said.
After finding him dead, David Carroll and his live-in lover, Amy Baker, took Marcus’ body to a rural area and burned it with gasoline. Then they threw the remains in the Ohio River.
The horrific 2006 murder of 3 year old Marcus Fiesel, a special needs Foster child, was one that shocked the senses of everyone, including myself. However, from the outset of the case of missing Marcus Fiesel, some thing just seemed to be wrong. Flashback to 2006, Scared Monkeys followed the events from the outset and had posted some rather critical articles of the foster parents accounts, obviously striking a nerve with Liz Carroll. The posts prompted Liz to leave a comment on Missing & Exploited web page that was far from PG rated and some what threatening. Needless to say it was forwarded to authorities. That very next morning, as fate would have it, Liz and David Carroll were arrested in the death of Marcus Fiesel.
Newspapers and television stations in southwest Ohio have followed every step in the case, and now that his foster parents have been charged, the story has grabbed the attention of media outlets throughout the United States.
There are Web sites that feature photo albums, message boards, chat rooms and slide and video shows. One of those is www.scaredmonkeys.com, dedicated to exploited and missing children. “Red,” one of the site’s co-founders, said after news of Marcus’ disappearance was linked to his Web site, he received an e-mail from Marcus’ foster mother. She chastised the site for their portrayal.
“As soon as she did that, well, it was like, she’s guilty,” Red said Friday from his office in Maine. “You knew this was going to end bad. The radar just went up. It raises the hair on the back of your neck. When you kill your son, and go public pleading for help, it brings it to a special level of hell.”
He said Marcus’ story has drawn widespread coverage because people are so “disgusted by it.” (Middletown Journal)
Here is one comment from Liz that we were able to print. Too bad she was lying through her murderous teeth.
First, I would like to state that the most important thing that everyone should be concerned about is finding my son. My family’s past and living arrangements have absolutely nothing to do with finding him. My family left our home to avoid media and multiple stangers from sitting outside our house at all hours. We have cooperated 110% with the detectives and have stayed in touch with them on a daily basis. Again, my family has done nothing wrong, we love and miss Marcus. I regret going to the park, not sitting down and not eating that morning. My family and I take day care and foster care children to King’s Island, Water parks, town parks, YMCA, aquariums, carnivals, festivals, and many more places. Since this incident, I have not been left alone and we haven’t taken out kids anywhere but school shopping. I am begging for anyone and everyone that reads this to PLEASE help me find my son. I know that I will not be able to care for him after this incident but I still need to know that he is alright. PLEASE call crime stoppers with ANY possible leads!!!!!!Thank you.

Barack Obama’s Killing Fields … 82 Shot, 14 of Them Killed in Chicago Over the Fourth of July Weekend
The Windy City Killing Fields … Hey, isn’t Barack Obama call Chicago home?
Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy stated his frustration Monday regarding the violence that took place in Chicago over the 4th of July weekend, “The illogical nature of what’s happening here — that government can intercede and prevent this from happening is overwhelming. And I refuse to think otherwise in a great country like America that we can continue to allow this to happen. On the July 4th weekend, 82 individuals were shot and 14 killed. The result of weak gun laws for criminals. Obama does not appear to be concerned, but MC Hammer is.
McCarthy, reciting the criminal histories of several of the suspects in this weekend’s violence, noted gang members face tougher consequences for losing their guns from their gangs than from authorities.
“Possession of a loaded firearm — it’s not even considered a violent felony in the state of Illinois for sentencing purposes — which is why you see the revolving door,” he said.
Among the suspects: a man wanted in connection with a murder who has 21 prior arrests, and another with six previous arrests, including one this year for aggravated assault for discharging a weapon.
“How this individual is out on bond is beyond me,” McCarthy said.
The incidents include eight times in which police fired guns at suspects or were fired on, McCarthy told reporters. In two of those incidents, police shot and killed the suspects, both of whom were 16.
For 10 minutes, it seemed like the shooting was everywhere in the South Chicago neighborhood.
It started when someone shot and wounded a couple, then two people fired at the shooter, then there was a chase and shots exchanged and a man sitting on a porch was hit. Responding officers kept cutting each other off on their radios as they reported other gunfire in the area late Sunday night and early Monday morning.
Then the heavy equipment rolled in: A helicopter and SUVs packed with lockers of rifles. SWAT teams in green coveralls patrolled the streets with uniformed officers.
It was just one of dozens of shooting scenes across Chicago over the long Fourth of July weekend. In all, at least 82 people were shot, 14 of them fatally, since Thursday afternoon when two woman were shot as they sat outside a two-flat within a block of Garfield Park.
Five of the people were shot by police over 36 hours on Friday and Saturday, including two boys 14 and 16 who were killed when they allegedly refused to drop their guns.
- But don’t sent any gifts or throw confetti. The murderer got married in prison July 4th.
O.J. Simpson: 20 Years Since the Murders of Nicole Brown Simpson & Ron Goldman… After Midnight on the Morning of June 13, 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were Found Murdered Outside her Home in Los Angeles, CA
It is hard to believe it has been 20 years since the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. The two were found brutally murdered outside of her home in Los Angeles, CA.
Long after the so-called “not guilty” verdict of O J Simpson in the horrific murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman so many questions still remain. There was a mountain of evidence, including DNA, that should have made this a slam dunk case. However, in what was probably the greatest example ever of jury nullification, a jury acquitted OJ Simpson in the double murders. Of course, common sense and rational people knew then and know now much different. The murder trial of O.J Simpson was dubbed, The Trial of the Century. But sadly, instead of the trial being about finding justice for Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, for their brutal and savage murders, the Defense ‘Dream Team’ sought to make the trial about race and pulled the race card out from the bottom of the deck. The trial divided America. The verdict was a travesty of justice and for all those involved in that travesty, and applauded that travesty … God help you.
Remember Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman murdered 6/12/94
To many, particularly in minority communities, the trial of Orenthal James Simpson became not so much a determination of his guilt or innocence of murder in the first degree, beyond a reasonable doubt, but whether or not a black man could find justice in a legal system designed by and largely administered by whites. To others, many of whom were white, the key question was whether a mostly minority jury would convict a black celebrity regardless of the weight of evidence against him.
Ron Goldman’s father: Son’s death is ‘like yesterday’
“It’s like yesterday,” said Fred Goldman on TODAY Wednesday. His son, Ron Goldman, was murdered along with Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson. “The loss is exactly the same. Nothing has changed.”
Years after O.J. Simpson was acquitted of the murders, questions remain about what happened 20 years ago this month and how an apparently strong case with “a mountain of DNA evidence” failed result in a conviction.
Shortly after midnight on the morning of June 13, 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were found murdered outside her home in Los Angeles. Evidence on the scene led police to suspect O.J. Simpson of the murders, and Simpson’s lawyers arranged for him to turn himself in on the morning of June 17.
Soon after Simpson failed to appear at the allotted time, police issued an all-points bulletin. Early that evening, a bizarre low-speed chase ensued, with up to 20 police cars pursuing Simpson in his white Bronco, driven by his friend Al Cowlings, while media helicopters televised the chase nationwide. The chase ended at Simpson’s house, where he eventually surrendered peacefully.
Simpson’s trial on two counts of murder began in January 1995 and ended with his acquittal more than eight months later.
Most people focus on the cute tag line by the late defense attorney Johnny Cochran when O.J Simpson was asked to put on the bloody gloves, “If It Doesn’t Fit, You Must Acquit”. There is a general rule withing the legal industry that a lawyer is never to ask a question they do not already know the answer to. Assistant DA Darden blew this one.
However, folks may want to better remember where that bloody golf came from, the gruesome crime scene where Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were stabbed to death. Where Nicole’s head was nearly severed from her body. Take a good look at that bloody glove, doesn’t seem so cute with “if it doesn’t fit” does it? What doesn’t fit is that an obviously guilty individual was set free. WARNING – DISTURBING AND GRAPHIC PHOTOS: pics here of crime scene.
16 months after the killings of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman on June 12, 1994, a jury found there was not enough evidence against O.J. Simpson to convict him. But there was plenty of evidence the jury didn’t see.
- Nicole’s best friend Kris Jenner said Nicole told her just weeks before the murders, “He’s gonna kill me, and he’s gonna get away with it.”
- Two other key witnesses told police they saw O.J. Simpson soon after the killings. Jill Shively said, “All of a sudden, a white car comes flying north on Bundy, and I barely miss him. It was O.J. Simpson.” But Shively never testified because she sold her story to the press.
- Jurors never heard, either, from Skip Junis, who said he saw the former football star and actor at the airport later that night. “He was carrying this little, cheap gym bag, and was pulling things out and dumping ‘em in the trash can,” he said.
- There was also a suicide note, read by Simpson’s close friend Robert Kardashian. It was never heard in court. Neither did 911 recordings from the police’s famous low-speed chase of the white Bronco on Los Angeles highways.
3 Inmates Escape from Canadian Jail Using a Helicopterin Quebec City … Suspects: Yves Denis Yvon Lamontagne, Denis Lefebvre & Serge Pomerleau (Update: Canadian Escapees Captured)
Movie-like prison break in the Great White North …
Three inmates escaped from a Quebec City, Canada jail Saturday night with the aid of a helicopter. A Sûreté du Québec spokesperson confirmed to CBC News that the prison break occurred at 7:45 p.m. ET from Orsainville Detention Centre and the inmates fled westbound in a green helicopter. There is currently a massive manhunt under way in Canada and the United States for Yves Denis Yvon Lamontagne, 35, Denis Lefebvre, 53, and Serge Pomerleau, 49. All are considered involved with organized crime.
From left, Denis Lefebvre, Serge Pomerleau and Yves Denis are shown in these police handout photos. Pic: screen grab from AP video below.
In a daring operation worthy of a movie, three men escaped from a Canadian jail by helicopter, prompting a massive manhunt, authorities said.
The men escaped from a detention center Saturday night in Quebec City.
“A helicopter touched down briefly in the courtyard before taking off with the three prisoners,” Ann Mathieu, a spokeswoman for Quebec Provincial Police, told CNN.
“We are talking closely with the detention center to figure out exactly how the escape transpired,” Mathieu told CNN partner CBC. “The priority … is to find the helicopter.”
A manhunt is under way for Yves Denis Yvon Lamontagne, 35, Denis Lefebvre, 53, and Serge Pomerleau, 49.
The three men were originally arrested on drug trafficking and gangsterism charges in 2010, according to police.
Denis is also facing first-degree murder charges, while Lefebvre and Pomerleau are facing charges of murder and conspiracy to murder, according to the Quebec provincial police website.
As the search continued Sunday, police added the escapees to the list of Quebec’s 10 most wanted.
The status of the men’s cases in the court system was not immediately clear. Provincial jails in Canada normally house people awaiting trial or those sentenced to offenses of two years or less behind bars.
Police said the men were swept up in a major 2010 police operation called Operation Ecrevisse (Project Crayfish), aimed at bringing down a drug trafficking ring in northwestern Quebec.
“The prisoners were arrested at 1:30 in the morning in Montreal. The SWAT team made the arrest and those three people will appear in court … Monday in Quebec City,” Quebec police spokesman Sgt. Ronald Mc Innis told CNN.
He declined to say any more about the arrest as the investigation is continuing.
The helicopter’s pilot hasn’t yet been caught, according to police, but more arrests are expected, Mc Innis said.

Three Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers have been killed and two other wounded at the hands of a gunman in Moncton, Canada. The gunman is still on the loose as there is currently a massive manhunt for the suspect. New Brunswick RCMP said the police received a call at 7:20 p.m. AT Wednesday about a man wearing camouflage and carrying guns. One resident, Joan MacAlpine-Stiles, recalled seeing the gunman when she opened a window and said, “Oh my God, there he is with camouflage and the headband and a gun, and it looked like a bow he had with him, and I mean he was just through our backyard.”
A man dressed in fatigues and carrying a rifle went on a rampage, killing three police officers and wounding two others.
Police posted to social media a photograph of a man dressed in fatigues, carrying what appeared to be a rifle.
Thursday morning, the shooter was still on the loose.
Residents were asked to keep their doors locked and their outside lights on, as helicopters hovered overhead and the hunt for the gunman continued.
The police have warned Canadian residents not to provide police movements on social media so not to put police in more danger in trying to apprehend the suspect, 24 year old Justin Bourque, the individual alleged to have killed three Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers. Police state that Bourque is “armed and dangerous” and it warned residents to stay indoors away from windows and to lock their doors.
New Brunswick RCMP have confirmed that three officers were shot and killed and two other officers were wounded by a heavily armed gunman Wednesday evening in Moncton.
A police manhunt is still underway for Justin Bourque, 24. The RCMP say Bourque is considered “armed and dangerous.”
Paul Greene, an RCMP spokesman, said Bourque was last seen in the wooded area near the Pinehurst subdivision. Police are asking people to keep their doors locked and leave their outdoor lights on.
RCMP Const. Damien Theriault could not say how many police officers were involved in the manhunt.
UPDATE III: Murder Suspect Arrested:
Canadian police Friday arrested the suspected shooter who killed three police officers and wounded two others in a small city in eastern Canada, bringing an end to a 30-hour search that terrorized local residents and captured the attention of the country.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said Justin Bourque, a 24-year-old who allegedly killed three RCMP officers and injured two others late Wednesday, was arrested in a wooded residential area in Moncton, New Brunswick, shortly after midnight. It said charges were pending.
Const. Dave Ross, a Quebec-born Mountie who had lived in New Brunswick for seven years, has been identified as one of three RCMP officers killed in Moncton, N.B., Wednesday night.

Three More Victims Identified After Elliot Rodger Deadly Killing Spree in Isla Vista, California … UCSB Students Cheng Yuan Hong, 20, George Chen, 19, and Weihan Wang, 20
Three more victims of the Elliot Rodger of the deadly killing spree have been identified. The three victims who were stabbed multiple times to death in unit No. 7 of a two-story, charcoal gray building on Seville Road have been identified as 20 year old Cheng Yuan Hong, 19 year old George Chen amd 20 year old Weihan Wang. The police state that Hong and Chen were listed as tenants at the apartment along with the 22 year old mass murderer Elliot Rodger. All three victims were students at the University of California Santa Barbara. Thirteen others were injured, some by gunfire and others by being hit by his vehicle. One was in serious condition at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.
The three victims who were stabbed in the apartment of the man who unleashed a rampage in the college town of Isla Vista, California, were identified by authorities Sunday, two days after the violent spree.
The victims were identified as Cheng Yuan Hong, 20, and George Chen, 19, both of San Jose, and Weihan Wang, 20, of Fremont.
Authorities said that Hong and Chen were listed as tenants at the apartment of 22-year-old Elliot Rodger, who was suspected of causing the rampage. It was unclear if Wang was a roommate, too. All three were students at the University of California Santa Barbara.
Early today the three other shooting victims that were killed were ID’d, 22 year old Katie Cooper, 19 year old Veronika Weiss and Christopher Ross Michaels-Martinez. All 6 victims in Isla Vista murdered were UCSB students. That fact that an individual with so many mental issues and for some time was not flagged some where along the line had legally purchased guns is troubling, and personally I am as pro-Second Amendment as it gets.
Hidden in Rodger’s bedroom were three guns purchased legally from licensed dealers in Goleta, Oxnard and Burbank, authorities said. They said Rodger used the guns and his black BMW to wreak havoc across a square mile of the quiet college town — running down cyclists and skateboarders, shooting through shop windows and exchanging fire with officers.
Elliot Rodger had wrote in his 141 page manifesto the details to his deranged plans that stated, “The first people I would have to kill are my two housemates, to secure the entire apartment for myself as my personal torture and killing chamber.” The psycho then went on to write that he would lure people into the apartment and kill them before an “ultimate showdown in the streets of Isla Vista.”
Three Victims of Mass Shootings Identified By Police: 22 Year Old Katie Cooper, 19 Year Old Veronika Weiss & 20 Year Old Christopher Michael-Martinez … All University of California Santa Barbara Student … RIP
Please ay a prayer for the family and loved ones of the Isla Vista Mass shooting victims … REST IN PEACE.
Three victims of the mass shootings at the hands of 22 year old Elliot Rodger have been identified by authorities. The three victims ID’d were all University of California Santa Barbara students. Four others were also killed, including the gunman and several others were injured in the shooting rampage. 22 year old Katie Cooper and 19 year old Veronika Weiss were Delta Delta Delta sorority sisters who died after being shot outside the Alpha Phi sorority house at the 800 block of Embarcadero del Norte close to the campus of the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB).
Thousands of mourners gathered for a vigil in Isla Vista at University of California, Santa Barbara on Saturday evening as students and community members sang ‘Amazing Grace’.
Christopher Ross Michaels-Martinez: A grieving father identified his 20-year-old son as a victim in in the shooting. Michaels-Martinez was from Los Osos and was gunned down at a local deli, IV Deli Mart.
Veronika Elizabeth Weiss: Weiss, of Westlake Village and a graduate of Westlake High School, was in her first year at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She was 19. According to her Facebook page, Weiss was a member of the Delta Delta Delta sorority The crazed shooter claimed to be a virgin and spurned by girls; however, the father of Veronika Weiss said his daughter would not have shunned the loner.
My daughter would probably have been a friend to him because of the way she was,” he was quoted as telling the newspaper.
“She was always drawn to the ones with the broken wings. She was the opposite of what he thought he was shooting.
US-CRIME-SHOOTING-SCHOOL The shooting has stunned the student town
“She was the kind who would have reached out to him. She reached out to the kids who weren’t the most popular or the cutest.”
Katherine Breann Cooper: Cooper was a 22-year-old UCSB student from Chino Hills. She and Weiss were Tri-Delta sorority sisters. Cooper studied art history and archaeology at UCSB, according to her Facebook. She graduated from Ruben S. Ayala High School in Chino Hills in 2010.
The Twitter community, filled with people who closely knew Katie and Veronica, have sent their condolences, prayers, and sympathies through hundreds of tweets already.
16 Year Old Aazis Richardson Arrested and Charged with Murder of Cabbie Vincent Darbenzio Because He Took the Long Way … Hmm, Also Robbed Cabbie of $500
Yeah, the gang member and punk with the illegal gun blames the cabbie …
16 year old Aazis Richardson has been charged with first, second and third degree murder, robbery and other related counts in the shooting death of a cab driver. Richardson shot 47 year old Vincent Darbenzio twice in the head as he claims he did so because he became “upset because the cab driver was taking the long way and ripping him off.” Hmm, so you killed him, that’s the response? Aazis Richardson claims the cabbie was trying to rip him off so what did this thug do, he robbed the cabbie of $500. The shooting occurred at the intersection of Crown Avenue and Pear Street in South Scranton, right outside the entrance to the Valley View Terrace housing complex, one of the city’s first public housing developments. Brian McCarthy, the owner and CEO of McCarthy Flowered Cabs, who Darbenzio worked for said, “This is the most horrific thing that’s ever happened to me since I’ve been in the taxi business.”
Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the NAACP and Barack Obama could not be reached for a response.
Full criminal complaint can be rad HERE.
16 year old Aazis Richardson
Aazis Richardson was charged with murder Friday night, hours after police said he shot 47-year-old Vincent Darbenzio twice in the head. The cab driver’s body was found in his vehicle shortly before 5 a.m. near the entrance to a Scranton housing complex.
“Richardson said he got upset because the cab driver was taking the long way and ripping him off,” police wrote in a criminal complaint posted online by The Times-Tribune of Scranton. The complaint said Richardson told investigators the driver kept taking a longer route even after being told shortcuts.
Richardson told police he became angry and shot Darbenzio after telling him to pull over, according to the complaint.
UPDATE I: Teen arrested in Scranton cabbie’s murder has a criminal and gang related past … go figure.
16 years old and already implicated and being investigated in 4 murders. Just lock this kid up for the rest of his life or introduce him to old ” Sparky” and do society a favor.
Mr. Darbenzio picked Mr. Richardson up on Washburn Street about 3 a.m. and Mr. Richardson told detectives he asked to be let out near Valley View Terrace. It was there Mr. Richardson shot Mr. Darbenzio and stole $500 from his pockets before walking away.
He told police he threw the money in the woods near his 1011 Washburn St. home, but police have not found it.
“All homicides have a certain level of coldness,” Chief Carl Graziano said at a news conference after the accused murderer was arraigned. “But this particular defendant exceeds all measurable levels of coldness.”
Police located Mr. Richardson after tracing his address from the phone number used to call for the cab.
Mr. Richardson claims he bought the 9mm handgun for $175 in Newark, N.J., where he said he is a member of the Boyton Boys set of the Bloods gang. Police found the weapon after the defendant continued to glance at a bag where he had stashed it in the attic.
He also claims to be a suspect in a triple homicide in Newark but had been released from jail. District Attorney Andy Jarbola said his office was investigating.
