  3. A decorated Vietnam veteran and firearms collector was sentenced to seven years in federal prison Wednesday for a decades-old purchase of a rifle. Alfred Pick, 70, purchased the M14 -- a fully automatic weapon illegal to own -- at a Ft. Worth gun show in the early 1980s, the Dallas Morning News reported. The rifle, which had a scratched-off serial number, was similar to the one Pick used as an Army lieutenant in Vietnam, where he earned a Silver Star after participating in more than 100 combat missions and his brief time as a POW. "The man is a Silver Star winner, he saved lives, he took care of his wife, he’s been in custody for a year, I would think that when a man turned 70 and is an American hero you don't destroy the rest of his life for one mistake," Mark Shackelford, a friend, told KDFW-TV. Shackelford called the weapon the "piece de resistance" of Pick’s collection, adding that "He had shown it to me. I've never seen it taken out of the case. Ryne Sandel, Pick's attorney, said his client had a "connection" to the rifle at the time. Pick has accumulated dozens of weapons over the years, most of them collectibles, Sandel said. Last year, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents looking for the rifle raided Pick’s Plano, Texas, home two weeks after his wife died of cancer and found the weapon. "He's had it all these years, never robbed a bank or done anything with it," Shackleford said. "I would think that when a man turned 70 and is an American hero, you don't destroy the rest of his life for one mistake." Some Vietnam veterans were less than sympathetic, the station reported, saying Pick should have known better since the rifle's serial was scratched out. https://www.foxnews.com/us/vietnam-war-hero-sentenced-to-7-years-for-decades-old-rifle-purchase-report --------------------------------------- This is the emotive narrative advanced by his attorney, but digging shows a whole different story...
  4. A 23-year-old woman arrested after a 7-year-old found a gun in her purse and accidentally shot a 4-year-old with it last year was charged Thursday with drug possession. Lyric L. Parker-Wheeler faces one count of fifth-degree drug possession after police also found cocaine in her purse, according to a criminal complaint filed against her last month in Ramsey County District Court. The felony-drug-charge stems from an incident that took place back in late July of 2017. Officers responded to a home in the 700 block of East Third Street about 6:40 p.m. that evening on reports of a shooting involving children. A 7-year-old girl reportedly found a gun in Parker-Wheeler’s purse and was playing with it when she accidentally shot a 4-year-old girl, police said at the time. Responding officers used a tourniquet to control the bleeding, and the girl was taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul with non-life-threatening injuries. As police processed the house, Parker-Wheeler attempted to enter the crime scene to retrieve a white purse left on the floor, according to the criminal complaint filed against her Sept. 18. Although officers repeatedly told her she needed to leave the purse where it was, Parker-Wheeler eventually snatched it up before police could stop her. During a subsequent search of the purse, police found a white substance inside of it that later tested positive as seven grams of cocaine. Parker-Wheeler is not related to the children involved in the shooting, according to police. She had been staying at the residence where the shooting occurred. link

    Minnesota man with warrants jumps from 8th floor, survives A 27-year-old man had three warrants and perhaps nine lives. When a bail-bonds crew went to a St. Paul apartment, looking for Travis Cortez Blanche, he jumped out an eighth-floor window, according to police. Blanche, of Bloomington, sustained serious, but not life-threatening, injuries to his head and shoulder, said Steve Linders, a St. Paul police spokesman. It wasn’t clear whether Blanche landed on grass, concrete or what type of surface was outside of the Frogtown apartment. Officers responded to the apartment building at 750 Milton St. on Thursday at 4:55 a.m. A woman in an apartment said she let in the bail-bonds staff and Blanche leapt from the window, according to Steve Linders, a St. Paul police spokesman. Paramedics took him to Regions Hospital. Blanche had Hennepin County warrants in three cases. In April, Blanche was charged with fleeing police in a vehicle and possession of marijuana, and a warrant was issued. He also had warrants for failing to appear at a hearing in two cases: One is a charge of illegal possession of a firearm; he isn’t allowed to have a gun because of a 2015 fifth-degree drug conviction. The other is a second-degree assault charge, in which he is accused of pistol-whipping the head of a woman who is the mother of his child, according to a criminal complaint. Blanche’s attorney could not immediately be reached for comment Friday. https://www.twincities.com/2018/10/12/man-with-warrants-seriously-injured-after-bail-bonds-crew-arrives-he-jumps-from-8th-floor-st-paul-window/
  8. Police kick in door to help mother in labor WYOMING, Minn.—When Wyoming, Minn., police officers responded to a 911 call on Tuesday, Oct. 9, of a mother in labor, they found the front door locked. Officer Matt Paavola kicked in the door and discovered that Nichole Mickelson, 38, had just given birth to a baby girl. Mickelson, who is a nurse, was performing CPR on the baby, named Anna, who wasn't breathing. However, Mickelson was pregnant with twin girls, and the second baby was on the way. "I was doing some rescue breaths on Anna, but I knew I would have to stop because I could feel the baby coming," she said. Paavola took over CPR on Anna, clearing her airway, giving her mouth-to-mouth breathing and chest compressions until she revived and began to cry. As Paavola performed CPR on Anna, officer Scott Boecker arrived on the scene. Mickelson shouted to Boecker that her second baby was coming. "Yes, that's right, a second newborn," Wyoming Police Chief Paul Hoppe wrote on the department's Facebook page in describing the response to the 911 call. "Unannounced to the two officers, the mother was pregnant with twins. With the first newborn baby breathing on her own, the officers switched gears and delivered the second newborn baby girl Ashley." Anna Ruth weighed 5 pounds, 15 ounces and was born at 7:28 am. Ashley Nichole weighed 5 pounds, 9 ounces and was born at 7:34 a.m. The girls join older siblings Olivia, 14; Landon, 13; Ethan, 11; and Benjamin, 2. Nichole Mickelson's husband, Jeremy, is a carpenter and was at work at the time of her sudden labor. The couple said they were grateful for the response of the police officers and paramedics. "They treated us like family," said Nichole, who works at Fairview Lakes Medical Center in Wyoming. Nichole, who is trained in neonatal resuscitation, said she had never had to use those skills at work. "My first time using it was on my own baby twin," she said, noting that her previous labors had been relatively quick and easy — "but never this quick." The babies were initially brought to Fairview Lakes but then transferred to the neonatal intensive care unit at Masonic Children's Hospital at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Nichole said the twins were doing well and expected to go home sometime this weekend. Hoppe praised the work of his officers. "As a chief, you want to make sure you give your staff the necessary training to do their job, and you hope they recall that training when the need arises," he wrote in his Facebook post. "On this day, these two officers performed flawlessly, professionally, without hesitation, with care and compassion to the family. ... The Mickelson family will have one heck of a story they will probably carry with them for a lifetime."

Beat your wife, or girlfriend and the cops refuse to investigate because you have family in high places.

  11. BEMIDJI MN -- A Beltrami County Sheriff’s Deputy busted a marijuana growing operation on Friday in rural Turtle River Township. On Friday, at 4:15 p.m., a Beltrami County Deputy was investigating the theft of a motor vehicle, and the investigation brought him to a residence on the 5600 block of Pincherry Road Northeast in rural Turtle River Township, approximately 3.5 miles east of Bemidji, according to a release from Chief Deputy Ernie Beitel. While at the residence, the deputy observed what appeared to be a large number of marijuana plants that had recently been harvested, the release said. The deputy made contact with the homeowner while the man was in the process of harvesting a backyard grow operation. The homeowner, a 66-year-old man, was taken into custody, the release said. With the assistance of agents from the Paul Bunyan Drug Task Force, a search warrant was executed at the residence that resulted in the seizure of a large amount of marijuana plants in various stages of processing, the release said. Marijuana was found in almost every room of the residence and the plants varied in size of 4-9 feet in height; also located with the marijuana were several loaded firearms,which included assault type rifles, shotguns, and black powder rifles, the release said. The exact weight of the marijuana has yet to be determined. The man was released from custody pending formal criminal charges. The Pioneer generally does not name suspects until they are formally charged with a crime. link ---------------------------------- Turtle River green!
  12. A Burnsville man has been sentenced to more than five years in prison for selling heroin laced with carfentanil that killed a 27-year-old Chaska man. Jacob Svobodny, 29, pleaded guilty last month in Carver County District Court to third-degree murder for his role in the January 2017 death of John Michael Hall, who was found dead in his townhome a day before his 28th birthday. On Friday, Carver County District Court Judge Kevin Eide handed down the prison sentence of 5 1/2 years. According to a criminal complaint, Svobodny and co-defendant Leah V. Peterson bought heroin from a drug dealer in Minneapolis and texted Hall to ask whether he wanted some. Hall bought what he thought was a half-gram of heroin for a $30 Target gift card and a small amount of marijuana. An autopsy determined Hall died of carfentanil, a synthetic opioid that is 10,000 times more potent than morphine and 100 times more potent than fentanyl, which itself is 50 times more potent than heroin. Carfentanil’s sole suggested use is as a general anesthetic to immobilize large animals such as elephants before surgery. According to a statement by the Carver County attorney’s office, the year-long investigation by Chaska police included gaining cooperation from Peterson and through analyzing cell phone records, cell phone tracking, Shapchat posts, video surveillance, text messages and witness statements. Peterson, 26, of Minneapolis, was charged with aiding and abetting third-degree murder. She has a plea hearing scheduled for Nov. 28. Hall had lived in Alabama and came to Minnesota for a faith-based treatment center, the attorney’s office statement said. https://www.twincities.com/2018/10/01/burnsville-man-sentenced-to-prison-for-carfentanil-overdose-death/
  13. Authorities have arrested a man they say is connected to a shooting early Saturday morning in North Fort Myers.

  16. Defense attorney for Naiquan Hamilton speaks Prosecutors say they found a significant amount of marijuana at the crash scene, including edibles, and that the driver of the car, Naiquan Hamilton, had THC in his system. BROCKTON — With his family to his left and the families of the four victims he’s accused of killing to his right, Naiquan Hamilton stood in a packed courtroom before a judge — four months later. Hamilton, 18, was arraigned in the Brockton Juvenile Court session Monday as a youthful offender on four indicted counts each of manslaughter by motor vehicle, motor vehicle homicide by operating under the influence and motor vehicle homicide by reckless operation. The teenager wore a white dress shirt, gray dress pants and blue and red patterned tie as he stood before Judge Dana Gershengorn in the third-floor courtroom. “Not guilty,” Hamilton quietly replied, almost inaudible, when asked by the clerk how he pleaded to each of the three indictments, after looking to his attorneys for guidance. Hamilton is charged in the May 19 crash in East Bridgewater that claimed the lives of his four Stoughton High School classmates: 17-year-olds David Bell, Christopher Desir and Eryck Sarblah and 16-year-old Nicholas Joyce. The families of the victims filled both rows on one side of the courtroom. Some sat solemnly others kept their eyes closed as prosecutors outlined the events surrounding the horrific crash. Assistant District Attorney Russell Eonas described that the five teens, with Hamilton driving, were heading from Bridgewater to Westgate Mall in Brockton. As they drove into East Bridgewater and proceeded down West Street, the teens were behind another car of friends. Moments later, police began receiving numerous 911 calls for what was an “incredibly catastrophic scene,” the prosecutor said. “It was readily apparent that a motor vehicle, the one that was involved in the collision, had been traveling at an extremely rate of speed before leaving the roadway and impacting a tree,” Eonas said. “Specifically, the roadway evidence, confirmed and corroborated by witnesses, showed that the defendant, while operating his car on West Street that day, had left the roadway, struck a small stone wall across the opposite side of the roadway, lost control of the car, went into a roll, struck a brick staircase, flipped up on its end and then impacted a very large tree.” Hamilton, the lone survivor of the single-vehicle collision, was rushed to a local hospital. Three teens, Desir, Sarblah and Joyce were pronounced dead at the scene, while Bell died after he was taken to a hospital.
  17. Police say the officer heard a woman screaming nearby and ran to assist her Associated Press WILMINGTON, Del. — Delaware police say an off-duty officer rushed to assist a woman screaming in a nearby park and helped to stop a rape. The News Journal of Wilmington reports 39-year-old Joselito Rojas, of Pennsylvania, has been arrested on charges including first-degree rape in the Saturday attack. Wilmington police say the off-duty officer was assisted by other officers who were responding to 911 calls about the screaming woman. The newspaper says Rojas is wanted on an outstanding fugitive warrant for another state. Rojas was arrested nearly three years ago in connection to a stabbing that left a man critically wounded. He pleaded guilty but mentally ill in 2016 to second-degree assault in the stabbing. His initial 8-year prison sentence was reduced to one year. It's unclear if he has a lawyer.

    Police Woman tries to own kids.

  19. A woman whose violent arrest on a New Jersey beach earlier this year was captured on video was indicted last week. Emily Weinman, 20, was indicted by a Cape May County grand jury on charges of aggravated assault of a police officer, resisting arrest, throwing bodily fluids and obstruction. Weinman, of Philadelphia, was on a Wildwood beach during Memorial Day Weekend with her boyfriend and 18-month-old daughter when police officers confronted her after they believed she was drinking underage. What unfolded was captured on police bodycamera and in a video shot by a nearby beachgoer. Weinman complied with a breathalyzer test but the situation escalated when she refused to give the officers her name. One officer could be heard saying saying he's "done with" her and works with another cop to try to arrest the woman, the video showed. She then ran away, shouting profanities and telling the officers not to handcuff her. "You're about to get dropped," the officer responded. Weinman resisted arrest and as the officer continued to approach, she "forcibly struck" him in the torso, Police Chief Robert Regalbuto said — an action he claimed turned the officer's body camera off. It was apparently reactivated as the two struggled in the sand. The officer punched the woman twice — as voices in the background could be heard shouting "stop resisting" — before Weinman spit in the direction of one of the officers. The officers involved in the incident were identified by the Wildwood Police Department as Patrolmen Thomas Cannon, John Hillman and Robert Jordan. They were cleared of wrongdoing after authorities reviewed the video footage. Weinman rejected a plea bargain offer in July. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQQ9xOhuFrk
  20. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Florida authorities on Monday released hundreds of new pages in the case of a white man accused of fatally shooting a black man in a parking lot dispute in July. According to a transcript of Michael Drejka's interview with Pinellas County Sheriff's detectives, he said that if Markeis McGlockton had retreated, or even stayed still, he wouldn't have used his gun. But McGlockton's girlfriend, who was a witness to the incident, said McGlockton moved back. The 70-page interview of Drejka sheds light on his thinking in the seconds before the shooting. Prosecutors on Aug. 13 charged Drejka with manslaughter. He's been released from the county jail on $100,000 bail. Surveillance video from July 19 shows Drejka starting a confrontation over a parking space. McGlockton's girlfriend, Britany Jacobs, was seated in the couple's car with two of their children, ages 3 years and 4 months. Jacobs, whose interview with officers was in the newly released documents, said after parking, the 28-year-old McGlockton had gone into the store. That's when another vehicle pulled up and a man later identified as Drejka got out and started looking at her car in the disabled spot, then started hassling her, saying, "'Well, you need to move your car,' and all this and this, you know, 'Cause, you know, I got family that's handicapped,' and all this and this. So, I'm saying, 'Dude, uh, no. I don't know you, so, you know, leave me alone.'" The two exchanged more heated words. McGlockton then came out of the store and knocked Drejka to the pavement. "Markeis came running out and he pushed him," Jacobs said. "He was like, you know -- you know, um, 'Stay away from my girl,' or something, he said. And then all of a sudden, dude was on the ground, and he pulled out a gun and shot him." Said Jacobs: "All he did was backed up. 'Cause, you know, anybody, you know, with a gun pointed at him, he gonna, you know, shut up and not say nothing." Drejka, who is 48, told a detective, "It happened so fast and that was that ... I was literally blindsided." During the interview, the retired tree trimmer said he'd carried a gun since he was 22, and that people parking illegally in handicapped spots at that store was a pet peeve, and that he'd approached people before. "Does it ever go through your mind ... that they might not take that right? That this might go sideways a little bit?" the detective asked. "Um, well, sure. But that's why I take precautions, as well," Drejka said. When asked what kind of precautions, Drejka replied: "Well, I'm a very careful person and I have a permit." In an interview with a local TV station since his arrest, Drejka said that parking spaces for the disabled "have always touched a nerve" because his high school girlfriend and his mother-in-law used disabled parking spots. McGlockton's family has been outspoken in their dismay over how the case was handled, and hired attorney Benjamin Crump, who gained national prominence representing the family of Trayvon Martin after the black teen's fatal shooting by a Hispanic man in 2012. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/09/24/newly-released-records-show-lead-up-to-parking-lot-shooting.html
