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?

Parents Turn Their 13 Year Old Daughter into Sheriff’s Office after Finding Nude Pics on Cell Phone & Tablet in Dindiddie County, VA
TOUGH LOVE … WHEN WILL TEENS GET A CLUE ABOUT SEXTING?
Dindiddie County, VA parents have turned their 13 year old daughter into Sheriff’s deputies after they found nude pictures on her cell phone and tablet. The teens parents were shocked to discover that their daughter was sending and receiving nude pics. Exactly what part about creating and disseminating child porn don’t these teens quite understand? Even though it is possible their daughter could face criminal charges, they did this in order to protect her. The mother, whose name remains anonymous to protect the identity of the 13 year old, said that she is particularly concerned about whether the people she shared photos with were adults. The soon to be 8th grader may not necessarily face charges and go through the court system, but instead go through a program called diversion in the juvenile justice system. However, any older teens involved could most certainly be facing felony charges depending on their ages.
The parents discovered their 13-year-old daughter, who is about to enter the eighth-grade, had been sending and receiving naked pictures of other teens using her tablet.
And the deeper they dug, the worse it got. In fact, things got so bad they called in the sheriff’s department to investigate.
“What scares me is, this is much bigger than we realize. How many others are doing this and you don’t realize it,” asked the Dinwiddie County mother of two.
FOX 4 sister station CBS 6 News is not revealing her name to protect her family’s identity.
The parents became aware of what their 13-year-old was doing, when their other child heard voices in her bedroom around 4 a.m.
The parents then confiscated the electronics.
“Looking through the phone and the tablet we did find sexual pictures, conversations that were very inappropriate for her age,” she said.
While none of the nude photo’s showed their daughter with anyone else, there were pictures being sent back and forth with other boys.
“Everybody wanted to be her friend, because according to these people, she was cool now,” she said.
35 Year Old Stephen Howells & 25 Year Old Nicole Vaisey Arrested in Kidnapping of Two Amish Girls, Fannie and Delia Miller (VIDEO)(Update: Expect More Charges Like Sexual Assault and Rape)
A New York couple, 35 year old Stephen Howells and 25 year old Nicole Vaisey, have been arrested in the kidnapping of two Amish girls. Howells and Vaisey abducted 12 year old Fannie Miller and 7 year old Delia Miller on Wednesday, August 13, 2014 at 7:30 pm from their farm stand in Oswegatchie, NY prompting an AMBER ALERT.. The two girls were found safe on Thursday when their captors left them off at a home, and the individual returned them to their parents. The Hermon, NY couple have been arraigned on charges they intended to physically harm or sexually abuse both Fannie and Delia Miller. Both Howells and Vaisey are being held without bond. Both have been charged with first degree kidnapping; however, more charges are sue to follow.
Stephen Howells – Nicole Vaisey
A New York couple arrested in the kidnapping of two Amish sisters may have planned to abduct more children.
St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells said Saturday that “there was the definite potential” of additional victims and that additional charges may be filed against Stephen Howells, 39, and Nicole Vaisey, 25.
The Hermon, N.Y., couple have been arraigned on charges they intended to physically harm or sexually abuse a 7-year-old and 12-year-old after abducting them from a roadside farm stand in northern New York State earlier this week.
Wells says the motive was “to take these girls from their home and victimize these girls.”
Wells says the motive was “to take these girls from their home and victimize these girls.”
The sheriff said Howells and Vaisey “were targeting opportunities” and did not necessarily grab the girls because they are Amish.
“There was a lot of thought process that went into this,” Wells said. “They were looking for opportunities to victimize.”
The St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office issued a statement late Friday saying the arrests of Howells and Vaisey “no doubt saved young children from future abuse.”
The two Amish sisters from northern New York who were kidnapped this week and then found safe a day later were sexually assaulted, the St. Lawrence County’s District Attorneys office told NBC News. Investigators believe suspects Stephen M. Howells II, 39, and Nicole F. Vaisey, 25 had planned the kidnapping using “coercion tactics” and knew ahead of time they wanted to take the girls, St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells told reporters Saturday. Howells and Vaisey are being held without bail on first-degree kidnapping charges in the abduction and could face 25 years to life in prison if convicted. Wells added that “there was the definite potential” for additional victims, and the suspects could be hit with more charges.
Expect more charges to be added to the first degree kidnapping for Stephen Howells and Nicole Vaisey. Look for sexual assault and rape charges as well. Hopefully these two sex offenders will be going away for life.
More charges are expected soon against a northern New York couple accused of kidnapping two young Amish sisters and sexually abusing them, a prosecutor said Sunday.
Computer hard drives and other potential evidence are still being collected Sunday from the home of Stephen Howells Jr. and Nicole Vaisey, said Mary Rain, district attorney for St. Lawrence County.
“I 100 percent expect more charges,” Rain told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. She said the new charges, which she would not detail, could come after she meets with police investigators Monday or at the hearing Thursday. It’s also possible prosecutors would have to wait for results from forensic tests.

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.”

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.
