Former Colorado Police Chief Pleads Guilty to Weapons Theft


LEADVILLE, COLO. – A former police chief in a small Colorado town has pleaded guilty to charges of stealing weapons from his department and its evidence room and then selling them to pawn shops.

Fifty-two-year-old Michael Robert Leake pleaded guilty Friday to charges of theft and providing false information to a pawnbroker.

Leake was accused of taking weapons from the city of Leadville, where he was chief from 2009 until he resigned in 2015.

John Bryan, spokesman for Lake County District Attorney Bruce Brown, says Leake faces up to four years in prison at his sentencing in February.

Bryan says Leake was also accused of taking a city-issued check for more than $2,200 for ammunition and depositing it in his own account.

Prosecutors began investigating in 2016 after other city officials noticed irregularities.

Pennsylvania Police Chief Charged With DUI and Careless Driving


Pennsylvania – Camp Hill Police Chief Douglas Hockenberry was charged Monday with DUI and other traffic offenses following a crash earlier this month that investigators said involved alcohol.

Hockenberry, 46, was put on leave following the single-vehicle crash, which took place at about 10 p.m. Nov. 5 in Rye Township. The police chief lives in Marysville.

The case is awaiting preliminary hearing after charges were filed by the Perry County District Attorney’s Office. In addition to DUI, the charges include careless driving, disregarding a traffic lane and failure to notify police of the crash.

Hockenberry’s charges indicate he allegedly had a blood alcohol concentration greater than .16. The legal limit is .08.

According to state police, Hockenberry’s 2007 Chevrolet Silverado struck a tree and a mailbox, disabling the vehicle.

Hockenberry served as a Camp Hill police officer since 1996. He was hired as chief in 2013.

Erdogan’s chief adviser calls for Turkey’s NATO membership to be reconsidered – local media

Tensions between the military bloc and Turkey escalated last week when Turkey’s founding leader, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, and current president Recep Tayyip Erdogan were depicted as “enemies” during NATO drills in Norway. Erdogan said the incident was an attack targeting “Turkey and the Turkish nation.”

What [NATO] did is a scandal,” the Turkish leader told a ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) provincial congress in the eastern province of Bayburt on Sunday, Hurriyet reported. “They know that they cannot stop our country, which is why they are putting us on a target board. I hope that those who welcomed attacks against us before now understand the real face of the matter, as Ataturk was also included.”

The issue is not a personal or party issue. The target is Turkey and the Turkish nation,” he noted.

Today there is a Turkey that cannot be compared with 15 years ago in every field – from the economy to the defense industry and from trade to diplomacy. There is now a Turkey that produces its own weapons and tanks,” Erdogan warned.

Crying Wolf (Again): UN Chief Warns Global Warming Is “The Defining Threat Of Our Time”

Speaking to attendees at the United Nations climate talks in Bonn, Germany, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres (shown) warned that the world may have only five years to Doomsday, unless concerted action is taken to keep global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius. Climate change, said Guterres, is “the defining threat of our time,” and requires concerted action by the international community.

“There’s one issue that will define the contours of this century more dramatically than any other, and that is the urgent and growing threat of a changing climate,” he insisted. The UN honcho was addressing the 23rd annual “Conference Of the Parties”(COP23) under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which was scheduled to run from November 6-17. However, as with virtually all UN conferences and summits, it ran into overtime, wrapping up early in the morning on Saturday, November 18, around dawn.

Before ascending to his current position as secretary-general of the United Nations, otherwise known as the corrupt Dictators Club, Guterres had distinguished himself as a lifelong Marxist-globalist, becoming secretary-general of the Socialist Party of Portugal, prime minister of Portugal, and president of the worldwide Socialist International. As UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Guterres was a top architect of the disastrous (and still ongoing) “refugee” tsunami that flooded Europe with over one million (mostly Muslim) migrants from the Middle East and Africa in 2015.

Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office Administration Chief Sentenced to 15 Months in Prison for Illegally Profiting Off Inmates


Convicted ex-Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office administration chief Joe Russell will be sentenced to 15 months in prison for illegally profiting off inmates through the sale of JailCigs, Judge Marvin Aspen decided Thursday.

Aspen said that Russell must surrender himself to the U.S. Marshals at 10 a.m. on Jan. 22.

The judge also indicated that Russell’s time in prison could be shortened due to good behavior.

During court proceedings, Russell’s wife Nicole Lester became emotional during her testimony and broke down on the stand.

Jodi Bell, the attorney appointed to represent Russell, told Aspen that Lester had been battling depression and anxiety since the case began. Lester’s father, Murfreesboro police administrator Hiram Lester, also testified on his son-in-law’s behalf.

In addition to support from family, Russell also received written support from former Chancellor Robert Corlew III.

Bell also asked that Russell be placed on probation rather than serve time in prison. The attorney said Nicole Lester is unemployed and would be unable to provide for her family if her husband was incarcerated.

Russell’s income would also allow the family to better support the educational needs of one of their children who struggles with ADHD, Bell said.

Russell joined ex-sheriff Robert Arnold and Arnold’s uncle John Vanderveer in facing punishments after getting caught selling electronic cigarettes to inmates at the county jail in Murfreesboro without seeking contract approval for the arrangement from the Rutherford County Commission.

State and federal authorities spent more than two years investigating the JailCigs case, and this included FBI-led raids of the homes and offices for Arnold, Russell and Vanderveer.

The three faced an initial 14-count federal grand jury indictment in late May 2016.

Fresno Deputy Police Chief Gets Four Years in Prison For Selling Drugs


Keith Foster lacks remorse and has not accepted responsibility for conspiring to peddle heroin and marijuana while employed as deputy chief of the Fresno Police Department, a judge said Monday in U.S. District Court.

Foster, 53, also committed perjury on the witness stand during his trial in May, Judge Anthony Ishii said.

In addition, Ishii ruled that Foster obstructed justice and violated his position of trust.

Yet, the judge sentenced Foster to 48 months in prison, when the prosecution sought a sentence of 78 months.

In announcing the punishment, Ishii said there’s a perception in society that “people with money or in high positions get a break.” But the judge said he had balance Foster’s positive contributions to the community, which include nearly 30 year of police work.

Ishii also noted Foster’s strong family ties and his lack of a criminal record before his conviction.

Foster stood quietly next to his attorney, Michael McKneely, when his sentence was announced. He has to surrender to federal authorities by Jan. 13. Outside court, Foster, surrounded by family and friends, appeared more upbeat, vowing to appeal his conviction and sentence.

The 48-month sentence is similar to the punishment offered in a plea deal that Foster rejected prior to going to trial.

On May 23, a U.S. District Court jury found Foster guilty of conspiring to distribute heroin and marijuana. The jury was unable to reach a verdict on six other charges, including distribution of oxycodone.

E. Marshall Hodgkins, Foster’s lawyer, called the result “a tragedy.” He said Foster was offered a plea deal of four years in prison during the trial, but turned it down.

The verdict put a dark cloud on the Fresno Police Department, where Foster rose through the ranks to become Chief Jerry Dyer’s likely successor, and put a damper on Foster’s image as a role model to the city’s west side community.

Police Chief Who Once Said Legalizing Pot is Like Legalizing Murder Launching Weed Related Company


Eight months before recreational marijuana is set to be legalized in Canada, two former high-ranking police officers have launched a new company that connects patients with medical pot. 

Former OPP commissioner, MP and federal Conservative cabinet minister Julian Fantino and former RCMP deputy commissioner Raf Souccar officially launched their new business on Tuesday. They welcomed  media to their first clinic, a storefront tucked into a strip mall in Vaughan.

Both men spent decades battling illegal drug use in their law enforcement careers, with Fantino going as far as equating legalizing marijuana to legalizing murder while serving as Toronto’s chief of police in 2004. 

The duo had a change of heart after being “persuaded by the science and by real life stories,” Souccar said.

Aleafia Total Health Network, as the business is called, will connect patients to the “most effective product” for them and will work with universities and producers to research medical applications of the drug, according to the website.

The key word there is connect. Aleafia, which already has hundreds of patients, according to a media spokesperson, will not actually have any marijuana on the company’s premises.

“The purpose of the clinic is to do the assessments,” and provide complementary treatments like physiotherapy, said Fantino on Tuesday. “We’re not in the marijuana business. We’re a health delivery system.”    

After being assessed, patients can go to “whatever licensed provider they choose” to buy weed, he said. 
Bad ‘optics’ for Souccar

Fantino, who took a notoriously hard line against marijuana legalization in his past roles, and Souccar, who served as member of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s marijuana legalization task force, have faced some criticism for their new venture.  

British Columbia MP Don Davies, who serves as the federal NDP health critic, told CBC Toronto that Souccar’s new business created the appearance of a conflict of interest.

Brokerage Chief: Bitcoin Futures Must Be Quarantined






Brokerage Chief: Bitcoin Futures Must Be Quarantined


November 15th, 2017

Via: CoinDesk:

A well-known electronic brokerage firm is issuing dire warnings against the CME Group’s plan to launch a bitcoin futures contract next month.

But Interactive Brokers, in a comment letter dated Nov. 14, suggested a way to mitigate the risk it sees from such activity: The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), under the auspices of J. Christopher Giancarlo, should sequester systems that handle cryptocurrency derivatives.

“This letter is to request that the Commission require that any clearing organization that wishes to clear any cryptocurrency or derivative of a cryptocurrency do so in a separate clearing system isolated from other products,” wrote Thomas Peterffy, chairman of Interactive Brokers.

“If the Chicago Mercantile Exchange or any other clearing organization clears a cryptocurrency together with other products, then a large cryptocurrency price move that destabilizes members that clear cryptocurrencies will destabilize the clearing organization itself and its ability to satisfy its fundamental obligation to pay the winners and collect from the losers on the other products in the same clearing pool.”
