He’s Back … George Zimmerman Seen Patrolling Pompano Pat’s Gun Store After Recent Robbery in Deland, FL
George Zimmerman, the volunteer neighborhood watchman who was found not guilty in the death of Trayvon Martin was back to patrolling ways in a Volusia County, FL. According to a police report, two officers spotted a suspicious, dark-colored truck parked behind Pompano Pat’s early Sunday, shortly after midnight. The occupant of the truck turned out to be George Zimmerman. The all too often in the news following his murder trail Zimmerman told the police officers he had permission to be there from the store’s owner to provide security and keep an eye on the business after a recent robbery. However, the owner of Pompano Pat’s gun store denies having hired Zimmerman.
The manager of Pompano Pat’s, a motorcycle and gun store in DeLand, said Tuesday that Zimmerman was never hired to provide security, despite Zimmerman’s claims to DeLand police.
Store owner Pat Johnson says he’s getting death threats because of Zimmerman’s claim, and it’s not the first time. Last year, Johnson received threats after offering to replace Zimmerman’s gun shortly after Zimmerman was acquitted of murder in the 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford.
Although he’s not a hired security officer, George Zimmerman has been “patrolling” outside a Volusia County gun shop after it was recently robbed, according to the store owner.
Pat Johnson told Local 6 that Zimmerman is not an employee of his DeLand store Pompano Pat’s, which sells firearms, ammunition and motorcycles.
Johnson said that Zimmerman, on his own accord, has been spotted outside the store since the robbery earlier this month. The thieves stole rifles worth up to $5,000 and two mini-bikes, according to Johnson.
“I didn’t OK it. I didn’t know about it. I didn’t authorize it. I didn’t pay for it,” Johnson said. “He had just watched Facebook and the news and just took it upon himself to come up here and sit.”
Johnson added that although he knows Zimmerman, he has not hired him as a security officer.
GEORGE … PLEASE, FADE AWAY INTO OBSCURITY.
“Dumb, Dumber and Dumbest” … Two Naked Men & Their Underwear-Clad Accomplice Rob Bonita Beach, FL Restaurant … WHERE’S THE BEEF?
The Beefcake Bandits …
Three college age men, two completely nude, one just wearing his tidy-whites robbed Doc’s Beach House, not of any money, but of beef. You just can’t make this stuff up. The bandits in the buff robbed the restaurant at 3:06 a.m. Sunday, stealing 60 hamburgers, three pounds of bacon, three red peppers and a paddleboard. Why would one suspect that alcohol or drugs were involved in this crime? How do we know it was exactly 3:06 AM on Sunday, why the restaurant had a security camera of course. Actually, Doc’s Beach House had multiple security cameras that got the trio in a frame by frame account of their caper.

Why would three naked “knuckleheads” break into a Bonita Beach eatery and only steal food as two security cameras captured their every move?
“Dumb, dumber and dumbest,” Sansevieri said with a laugh Wednesday.
Three days after the naked caper heard around Southwest Florida, the bare-naked beef bandits remained on the lam. Authorities don’t know if the men are tourists or residents, but are trying to uncover and bare all tips. On Wednesday, authorities released photos — at least those that can be printed — to ask the public for help in identifying the men. The bandits robbed the restaurant at 3:06 a.m. Sunday, stealing 60 hamburgers, three pounds of bacon, three red peppers and a paddleboard.
In addition to the restaurant security footage and 200 frame-by-frame photos, the bandits left another clue: a trail of red peppers on the beach. On Sunday morning, Doc’s kitchen staff found the restaurant’s red peppers about 100 yards away near a beach bathhouse.
“They left a trail like Hansel and Gretel,” Doc’s waitress Shelly Isom said with a laugh. “One of them probably said after, ‘Uh, guys, where did we leave our clothes?’”
WHERE’S THE BEEF?
Anyone with information on the identities and whereabouts of the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477). Bangert believes the men will be caught because of the media attention.

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.

Five Mobsters Arrested Three Decades After the 1978 Lufthansa Heist at JFK Made Famous in the Movie ‘GoodFellas’ (Update: Bonanno Crime Family Suspect Vincent Asaro, Jerome Asaro, Thomas DeFiore, John Rigano & Jack Bonventre Arrested)
Five men believed to be reputed mobsters associated with New York’s Bonnano crime family have been arrested Thursday in connection with the 1978 Lufthansa heist at JFK International Airport. The “heist” was made famous in the 1990 movie. ‘GoodFellas’. Huh, I would have thought at this point either those involved in the multi-million dollar heist would have died of old age or been whacked for their involvement in the crime. Many of those who took part in the crime turned up dead to keep their silence. Mastermind of the heist James “Jimmy the Gent” Burke was a member of the the Lucchese crime family and died in prison in 1996. However, it would seem that Jimmy the Gent had some secrets in the basement of his home, now owned by his daughter.
Original VIDEO from NBC of the 1978 Lufthansa Heist
Five men believed to be mobsters were taken into custody on Thursday on charges of murder and other crimes linked to an long-unsolved 1978 Lufthansa heist at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, an FBI spokeswoman said.
The arrests in the three-decades-old crime, made famous by the 1990 film “Goodfellas,” were the result of an FBI search last summer at the New York home of James “Jimmy the Gent” Burke, said FBI spokeswoman Kelly Langmesser.
Burke, the suspected mastermind of the heist, died in prison in 1996 while serving time for the murder of a drug dealer. Robert De Niro played a character based on Burke in the film.
Those arrested were Bonanno family suspects Vincent Asaro, Jerome Asaro, Thomas DeFiore, John Rigano and Jack Bonventre.
File this one under, better late than never … Arrests Made in Cold Case Investigation, Including ’78 Lufthansa Heist.
The investigation looked at numerous crimes, some predating even the airport heist, including a homicide committed in the late 1960s. The federal investigation first became public in June, when F.B.I. agents descended on a home in the South Ozone Park neighborhood of Queens and began digging in the basement, soon finding human remains, the person familiar with the investigation said.
The property was owned by the daughter of the late James (Jimmy the Gent) Burke, the underworld figure whom investigators have long suspected of masterminding the Lufthansa theft.
One of the men who has been arrested, Vincent Asaro, 78, is expected to face charges in connection to the airport robbery, according to a second person familiar with the investigation. It is not immediately clear what investigators believe to have been his role.
The other men under arrest are not accused of that particular crime.
Define stupid, attempting to rob a gun shop …
Two black male teens dressed in female Muslim burqas tried to rob Suburban Armory, the gun shop on MacDade Boulevard in Collingdale, Delaware County, PA. as the two teens, age 15 and 17, tried to hold ho the store, the owner of the gun shop, Joe Galiano, chose one of the many weapons at his disposal and fired his .45-caliber hand gun at the assailants. Neither was struck, but the two ran from the store. The two teens were later found by police and arrested. They have been charged with robbery, possession of an instrument of crime, reckless endangerment and drug possession.
15 year-old Isaiah Nelson & 17 year-old Sean Wooden
Galiano is the owner of Suburban Armory, the gun shop on MacDade Boulevard in Collingdale, Delaware County. There is a giant gun-shaped sign on the roof. Inside, Galiano is surrounded by guns, including the .45-caliber pistol on his hip. Can’t miss it.
And the police station is just around the corner from the shop.
Despite these conspicuous crime deterrents, two teenagers nonetheless decided to throw on burqas and pull a silver handgun on Galiano about 1:40 p.m. yesterday in a botched attempt to stick him up, police said.
“They had the whole-body Muslim garb,” Collingdale Police Chief Robert Adams said. “They came in with the gun and pointed it for a holdup.”
Galiano, faced with the incongruous image of a male dressed in female Muslim garb waving a gun around, decided to make use of one of the many firearms at his disposal.
Investigators detained both suspects, who now face multiple charges including robbery and simple assault.
Officers recovered the handgun used in the robbery from the floor of the bus and other pieces of evidence, including the Muslim clothing and a backpack with duck tape, were found between the crime scene and the trolley stop, according to police.
Jihad Watch makes a very important point regarding the perps using Muslim garb to hide their identities, but in today’s PC world we are more worried about offending individuals than protecting citizens with common sense laws.
Clearly the burqa and the niqab are threats to public safety, as anyone can wear one and conceal his identity while committing a crime. But to ban them would be “Islamophobic.
How pathetic is this … Churches need GPS to track stolen Baby Jesus from Nativity Scene. So we need GPS in order for Churches to track down Nativity scene figurines in this day and age? WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? Try explaining that one to the Father on judgement day, oh sorry God, I stole a figurine of your son from a Nativity scene. Just curious, what part about Thou shall not steal are people not quite understanding?
It’s a problem some churches didn’t know how to handle until now. One security company is using its power to partner with a symbol that needs a little help this holiday season.
Each year, Baby Jesus figurines are stolen from nativity scenes across the country. Now, church owners are fighting back.
A GPS device is put inside the doll to prevent theft.
“And the beauty of this is it really works and it’s simple to use,” said Alan Czyzewski, Parishioner at St. Ambrose Church in New Jersey.
19 Year Old Thug Trevonnte Brown Attempts Armed Robbery on Bus in Seattle, WA and Then Gets His A$$ Kicked by Passengers (VIDEO)
Passengers fight back against thug on Seattle bus …
19 year old punk Trevonnte Brown finds himself in a world of hurt, literally. The 19 year old boarded a bus in Seattle, Washington and began terrorizing passengers as he pointed a gun at several of them in an attempt to rob them and then did so to the wrong individual. He fought back and then several other passengers joined in and began beating the crap out of the robber and held him until the authorities came. Brown was arrested and charged with 3 counts of robbery and of count of attempted robbery charges and could face up to 15 years if convicted.
Brown plead not guilty to the charges. Dude, you better watch the VIDEO below, it does not look like you were asking for directions.
The video shows a man — who police identify as Brown — pull out a handgun and rob two passengers of their cell phones. As he walks toward the front of the bus, the robber stops and points his gun in the face of a seated passenger.
That passenger stands up and lunges at the gunman, which sparks a melee that ends with several other passengers holding the robber on the ground.
Chris Briggs was one of the first passengers robbed. He was on his way home when Brown got on the bus, and he said he immediately noticed something off about him.
“We noticed that his face was kind of covered and he was wearing a hoodie, too, so you couldn’t quite tell what was going on,” Briggs said.
Briggs said the robber then pointed a gun at him and told him to hand over his phone. Briggs initially said no, put quickly thought better of it.
“He jabbed me a little harder and said, ‘Don’t make this any harder than it has to be,’” he said.
Moments later, when a passenger was scuffling with Brown, Briggs and others jumped in to help.
“Then me and a couple other guys all just kind of jumped at the same time to kind of tackle him,” he said.
