Gender police strike fear [insult a Brussels woman cop & one month jail]
March 14, 2018
Gender police strike fear: Insult a woman cop because of her gender in Brussels?
You will either pay a huge fine or spend one month in jail.
First time ever a person is convicted of sexism in the public square.
A court in Brussels fined a young man €3,000 for insulting a police officer because of her gender, Le Soir reported.
It comes as France prepares to create an offence of street harassment, described as “sexist and sexual outrage”.
The Belgian case involved a driver who was stopped for breaking the highway code. The young man – who has not been identified – insulted the police officer because of her gender, the court heard.
He was reported to have said she would be better off doing a job “adapted to women”, in a scene witnessed by several other people.
The driver was found guilty of three charges: contempt of a police officer, making threats and sexist remarks in public, and a serious violation of another person’s dignity because of her gender.

The driver was found guilty of three charges: contempt of a police officer, making threats and sexist remarks in public, and a serious violation of another person’s gender.
“This is the first time we have used this law to prosecute someone,” said Gilles Blondeau, spokesman for the public prosecutor’s office. “It is quite common for people arrested by the police to insult and threaten. But to personally blame a policewoman because of her sex is different.
“It was a good case to test this law: a concrete and very clear case, with many witnesses. This is obviously not always the case.”

Clean up time! Sanctuary State of CA sued by US govt for violation of Supremacy Clause of Constitution
March 9, 2018
Clean up time for California’s ‘sanctuary state’ laws.
Attorney General Sessions sues the State of California for violation of the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
The federal government reins supreme over state laws concerning immigration. Attorney General Sessions came to California to deliver the message.
The ‘sanctuary state’ laws targeted by the federal government are:
SB 54 — the California Values Act — prevents state and local authorities from reporting illegal aliens who were arrested for other crimes to ICE.
AB 450 — Gov. Brown’s law threatens business owners with persecution if they cooperate with ICE without first seeing whether ICE has a warrant/ correct documents.
AB 103 — gives oversight to California over ICE as the law allows the State of CA to inspect illegal aliens held by federal authorities.
At his press conference Wednesday, Gov. Brown did not defend Oakland Mayor’s actions alerting the community of soon-to-occur ICE arrests. ICE says that the Mayor’s actions put ICE personnel in danger and 800 persons were not detained.
The governor offered the following points in rebuttal to Sessions’s clear and cogent case that the Constitution’s Supremacy Clause forbade California from blocking the enforcement of federal immigration law:
1. Sessions is a liar. “The Trump administration is full of liars. They [sic] pled guilty already to the Special Counsel.”
2. Sessions is from Alabama — “a fellow from Alabama coming to talk to us about secession and protecting human and civil rights.
3. Sessions is a Nazi. “We don’t need a Gestapo kind of tactic with vitriol spewing out of Jeff Sessions’s mouth. “
4. Sessions is … a French revolutionary. “The attorney general is basically initiating a reign of terror.”
5. Sessions is sucking up to President Trump. “Jeff thinks that Donald will be happier with him and I’m sure Donald will be tweeting his joy at this particular performance.” (Trump has not tweeted about it.)
California Attorney General Becerra’s line of attack was simple denial.
Aptos Psychologist: Yes, it’s ‘clean up’ time here in CA. About time. Maybe fixing the ‘sanctuary state’ laws will impact California’s quality of life rating — currently at the bottom.

ICE arrests woman smuggler here in USA illegally
March 9, 2018
The ICE arrest of a woman smuggler on the streets of National City, CA — she was in U.S. illegally — separated the woman from her children.
A teacher aide of one of the children videotaped the arrest. What the woman and smuggling organization were smuggling is not known.
The Border Patrol says Perla Morales-Luna was identified as an organizer for a transnational criminal smuggling organization and was arrested for being in the country illegally.
Aptos Psychologist: One hears some say, “Why arrest undocumented persons just because they are here illegally?” Answer: mothers should ‘mother’ mot smuggle.
Identify fraud: $360 K received by CA Mexican in San Diego — why not deport instead of put in USA prison?
March 5, 2018
A Mexican man — who was deported twice and has a history of arrests — feigned U.S. identify for 40 years and received $360000 in benefits. Caught, he faces prison.
Since he is a resident of Tijuanna, Ca — why not deport Andres A. Anduaga back to Tijuanna, Mexico rather than pay $50 K a year to keep him in US prison for 12 years? That costs American taxpayers another $200,000 just to keep him in prison.
Perhaps he could serve time in Mexico and learn to contribute back to the nation of his birth. What do you think?
Justice denied for 30 years [female genital mutilation in Britain]
March 5, 2018
The latest Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) case to make it to court has been dismissed, with the judge claiming the child had denied harm and medical evidence was inconclusive.
The Somali origin father, who lives in Bristol, had allegedly admitted to allowing his seven-year-old daughter to be cut on the clitoris, telling a charity worker it would stop her “feeling sexy all the time”.
However, Judge Julian Lambert described the prosecution’s case against 29-year-old former Uber driver as “deeply troubling” and slammed witnesses as “inconsistent”, the Daily Mail reports.
He also stressed that the child had denied being harmed and dismissed the medical evidence as “wholly inconclusive at its highest”.
Not a single person has been found guilty of FGM offences in Britain, despite the practice being illegal for 30 years, thousands of cases being logged annually, and there being hundreds of successful prosecutions in France.
Firenze Sage: “The child denied harm.” It is up to you dear judge to protect children from themselves and scheming adults who greatly influence the child’s opinion. Do you expect the child to denounce the father who permitted her to be attacked with a razor and who she will go home with — you idiot!!
Promises…promises… Obama’s federal youth Promise program results in 17 deaths by a shooter in a Florida school … time to change the Promise program?
March 4, 2018
Promises, promises … Obama’s youth Promise program caused the Florida school killer to not be entered into the criminal justice system. Arrested multiple times, the young man was able on 10 occasions to buy guns. He killed 17 students from his school.
Senator Mario Rubio of Florida plans to change the Promise program so school districts can make different decisions so that law enforcement is alerted to dangerous and violent behavior:
RUBIO: I intend to propose changes to the federal youth PROMISE Program so that a school district plan under this program does not delay and does not discourage law enforcement from being alerted to dangerous and violent or hazardous behavior. This deranged killer was able to buy guns on 10 separate occasions because he would have passed every — any background check because none of the stuff that was known about him was reported to that system

Firenze Sage: hardworking taxpayers targeted again…. who ICE arrested recently in L.A. area
March 4, 2018
Hardworking taxpayers targeted again…
Who are the persons ICE arrested recently in the Los Angeles area? Eighty-eight percent (88%) of the 212 individuals arrested in the Los Angeles area this week for ICE immigration law violations were criminals with previous convictions.
Over the course of five days, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportation officers and special agents made the arrests and served 122 notices of inspection (NOIs) to businesses in the Los Angeles area of responsibility. This is in addition to notices of inspection issued to 77 businesses in northern California just weeks ago.
92% — 195 of the 212 arrested included 1) convicted criminals, 2) those who failed to leave the United States after being issued a final order of removal, and 3) those who returned to the U.S. after being removed.
More than 55 percent of those arrested were serious or violent felons or had been convicted on significant or multiple misdemeanors. Their crimes include child sex crimes, weapons charges, and assault.
ICE Deputy Director Thomas D. Homan remarked:
“Because sanctuary jurisdictions like Los Angeles prevent ICE from arresting criminal aliens in the secure confines of a jail, our officers are forced to conduct at-large arrests in the community, putting officers, the general public and the aliens at greater risk and increasing the incidents of collateral arrests.”
ICE focuses its enforcement efforts on individuals who “pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security.” This does not mean that any class of illegal aliens are exempt from enforcement actions.
Firenze Sage: Rack one up for the good guys.
Sanctuary Cities Santa Cruz & Watsonville: Why not follow federal laws which permit ICE to arrest at Local Jails rather than go find them at home, work & in community?
February 22, 2018
Sanctuary Cities Santa Cruz & Watsonville: Why not follow federal laws on the books which permit federal authorities aka ICE to arrest “bad dudes” in local jails rather than go find them in their homes, work place and community? Santa Cruz has some of the highest rates of crime in California.
Let’s do what we can to reduce crime in Santa Cruz and Watsonville, California. Below is a link to a FOX news report on ICE activities.
National Statistics on Recidivism — who gets arrested again and again
Bureau of Justice Statistics studies have found high rates of recidivism among released prisoners. One study tracked 404,638 prisoners in 30 states after their release from prison in 2005. The researchers found that:
- Within three years of release, about two-thirds (67.8 percent) of released prisoners were rearrested.
- Within five years of release, about three-quarters (76.6 percent) of released prisoners were rearrested.
Of those prisoners who were rearrested, more than half (56.7 percent) were arrested by the end of the first year.
- Property offenders were the most likely to be rearrested, with 82.1 percent of released property offenders arrested for a new crime compared with 76.9 percent of drug offenders, 73.6 percent of public order offenders and 71.3 percent of violent offenders.
It’s time that local Santa Cruz county politicians set policies that save fragile resources.
Per the FOX interview (see above link), the top ICE official says that ICE can process 10 inmates in in one 8 hour shift. Vastly more time and resources are required for ICE to find the”bad dudes” who were released back on the streets.
Connect with data bases so it’s easier to capture the truly “bad dudes” committing horrific crimes across the USA.
Currently ICE has access to local law enforcement databases, organized by states, such as Arizona and Texas, and metropolitan regions, such as the greater Seattle, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C. areas. In Arizona, AZLink, the database that experienced the most DHS searches during this period, pools together information from numerous law enforcement agencies across the state.
The person-power required for ICE find the “bad dudes” released back into the community is huge.
ICE targets individuals known to be at certain places in Santa Cruz and Watsonville, CA. By putting the work on ICE go find them in the community generates fears concerning who else will be picked up.
Releasing “bad dudes” back on the streets puts Santa Cruz county at risk of more crime.
The known rate for re-offending is over high. Over 50% will be arrested again within one year. So — by releasing the “bad guys” back on the streets local Santa Cruz and Watsonville Sanctuary City policies are directly responsible for more crime in Santa Cruz, Watsonville and elsewhere in the county.
Let’s hold our local Santa Cruz and Watsonville CA politicians accountable. Cooperate with ICE so that the”bad dudes” — the really “bad dudes” — are put on ice and if appropriate deported. Let’s stop the revolving doors at our local Santa Cruz and Watsonville jails wherein those arrested are quickly put back on the streets. What say you?

DACA kids, crime, illegal immigration & sanctuary cities …. what to do?
February 21, 2018
But it can sometimes be hard to deport the illegals involved because about half of the crimes detailed in the report occurred in so-called “sanctuary cities” that do not cooperate with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
President Trump has pledged to crack down on the gang and deport those in the United States illegally, and report author Jessica M. Vaughan suggested that it can’t happen soon enough.
Detailing how the gang rebuilt itself under Obama’s open-border immigration policies, she said, “this resurgence represents a very serious threat to public safety in communities where MS-13 has rebuilt itself. The resurgence is directly connected to the illegal arrival and resettlement of more than 300,000 Central American youths and families that has continued unabated for six years, and to a de-prioritization of immigration enforcement in the interior of the country that occurred at the same time.”
The research she supervised at the immigration think tank found that MS-13 concentrations were in areas where so-called “unaccompanied alien children” were put under Obama, including Virginia, California, Maryland and New York. They included those participating in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals who Democrats in Congress are fighting for.
She cited an example of a Maryland DACA recipient charged with gang activity who urged pals in El Salvador to take advantage of Obama’s policies:
One MS-13 clique leader in Frederick, Md., who had received a DACA work permit and was employed as a custodian at a middle school in Frederick, Md., and who was recently incarcerated for various gang-related crimes, reportedly was told by gang leaders in El Salvador to take advantage of the lenient policies on UACs to bring in new recruits, knowing that they would be allowed to resettle in the area with few questions asked. Several of these unaccompanied minors now have been arrested and incarcerated for various crimes, including a vicious random attack on a sheriff’s deputy in 2015.
Crime, torture and theft are the trademarks of the gang.
“The MS-13 members identified in the cases we found were accused of very serious crimes, including 207 murders. More than 100 were accused of conspiracy/racketeering, and dozens of others were charged with drug trafficking, sex trafficking, attempted murder, sexual assaults, and extortion,” said the report. Vaughan is the center’s policy director.
“The proliferation of sanctuaries may complicate disruption of MS-13,” said the report. “Many of the hotbeds of MS-13 activity are also places where local officials have adopted sanctuary policies. These policies prevent ICE from working effectively with local law enforcement agencies. There are approximately 300 sanctuary jurisdictions in the country, and they include municipalities, counties, and states.11 About half of the MS-13 arrests in our case set (222) occurred in sanctuary jurisdictions,” said CIS.

Freedom … to kill? No. Freedom from guns? Not possible. Freedom from violence due to mental illness? Possible.
February 16, 2018
Murdering kids at school, youth at universities, parishioners at church and people at music events. That’s become a reality of USA life in 2018. What can we do? Yes there are things we can do.
Yes — there are drugs that can medicate and control violent urges to kill self and other.
No — it’s not realistic to take away 300 million guns from the U.S. population. Take away the guns is the “answer” according to some. That is not realistic. Perhaps making it illegal for gun sellers to sell guns that spit out thousands of bullets — that’s possible.
Yes — a number of states have enacted laws so it’s easy to lock up persons who may harm others or themselves (including California).
Yes — shoot back! That works. There are stun guns and taser guns and a variety of ways to arm persons who can “guard” at public places, e.g., schools, churches, malls and other places where people congregate.
Yes — use modern surveillance cameras, drones and modern technology to watch those with known histories of violent histories. And permit law enforcement to keep track and monitor persons who post violent threats via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
So yes — let’s get real. There are too many young men (so far just men) who choose to kill others.
We must control persons’s with known, long term histories of violent urges via appropriate medication and appropriate incarceration.
Don’t ask for a federal government solution. States must experiment and do what’s right for their citizens.
