Surprise! Assistant Director of FBI’s Girlfriend is Illegal Alien on NBC’s ‘Blindspot’

There was a real plot twist in the personal life of FBI Assistant Director Edgar Reade (Rob Brown) in the March 2 episode of NBC’s Blindspot, titled “Warning Shot.” His girlfriend, Meg Butani (Reshma Shetty), reveals to FBI Special Agent Tasha Zapata (Audrey Esparza) that she is an illegal alien. Oh, by the way, Meg is a high profile journalist who was in a storyline about African refugees.

Would someone in the FBI, especially someone so high up in the organization, be willing to risk his career with a romance with an illegal alien? Well, maybe, given all the political corruption we’ve seen lately in the headlines these days.

Naturally, Meg feels entitled to remain in America even though she never went through the legal process, even when she learned of her dilemma at the age of 16 years old when she tried to get a driver’s license. At least Meg finally snaps out of the sadness of her illegal life in America to ask what any reasonable person would – how did she get mixed up personally with Reade, given his position?

 

 

Meg: My family came from India when I was 6. My uncle arranged our papers, and we thought everything was okay. Then, when I was 16, I took my documents to the DMV to get my driver’s license… The lady at the counter took one look at them and said that if I didn’t want to get arrested I should burn the whole pile.

Tasha: Your uncle got you fakes.

Meg: I’ve gone to college. I’ve paid taxes. I’ve worked at two high-profile newspapers without being discovered. But everything that I do, it’s a roll of the dice.

Tasha: That’s a horrible way to live.

Meg: But not as bad as the idea of being shipped off to a place that I barely remember. This is my home. I love this country. And I’m proud of what I have contributed.

Tasha: As you should be. Who else knows?

Meg: Just a few people over the years. You can’t do it alone. You need allies, people that you can trust.

Tasha: And you can trust me.

Meg: Of course.

Tasha: Okay, I’m just gonna say it. You’re undocumented, and you decide to date the Assistant Director of the FBI?

Meg: He didn’t exactly lead with that. And by the time I knew, it was too late. I was in love.

Oops. Too late. She was already in love with Reade.

So, as the episode continues, we learn that Reade has drawn a friend into the situation. This friend works for the State Department. Reade asks him to look into Meg’s status and find out if he can pave the way for her to become a legal resident. The agent can’t but he lays the blame on the fact that “some things at the upper levels of the State Department have changed… Everything is under more intense scrutiny including sensitive immigration issues.” There it is. The mandatory swipe at the Trump administration’s serious approach to illegal immigration. The lefties in Hollywood are so predictable.
 

 

Reade: Jonathan. Didn’t expect to see you so soon.

Jonathan: I’m here on other business. I only have a minute, but we need to talk.

Reade: Of course. Appreciate you taking the time.

Jonathan: As I’m sure you’re aware, some things at the upper levels of the State Department have changed… A lot.

Reade: Okay.

Jonathan: And… and everything I do is under more intense scrutiny now, including sensitive immigration issues.

Reade: What are you saying?

Jonathan: I’m sorry, Edgar. My hands are tied. I can’t break the rules right now.

Reade: Whoa, whoa, whoa. No one asked you to break any rules.

Jonathan: I can’t even bend them right now. Not without compromising myself. It’s too risky. I’m late for this briefing. Be careful, okay?

Is it just me, or is everyone here just showing a blindspot for ethics? The Assistant Director of the FBI wants a friend at the State Department to fix his girlfriend’s immigration status and the State Department guy complains that the old days of turning a blind eye are over. Good grief.

The end of the episode brings Reade proposing to Meg. Sure, who didn’t see that one coming? Meg demurely reminds him that marrying her won’t change her status but Reade isn’t bothered by that. She says yes and that’s that.

Now I guess we wait and see where this plot development takes us as the season continues. Hollywood is definitely beating the drum on illegal immigration this season. It’s a bit hard to be too sympathetic, though, when the people here illegally feel so entitled.

Disturbing Video Catches Cop Beating His Girlfriend in a Bar—No Charges, Dept Let Him Retire

barbar

Lafayette, LA — A woman beating cop was caught in the act thanks to a bar’s surveillance camera. However, thanks to a corrupt system that protects crooked and violent police officers, the high-ranking officers was allowed to quietly retire and will likely face no consequences.

This week, a video was uploaded to youtube by an anonymous source which showed Lafayette Police Department Captain Dwayne Prejean striking a woman in the head in a local bar. Conveniently for the police department, however, the video was removed by Youtube. However, it survived and was reported on by local media.

The department likely knew about the existence of the video well before it was reported on by local media. However, they chose to remain silent until the report aired.

This week, the department finally announced that they were conducting an internal investigation into one of their officers—who they conveniently refused to name. However, multiple sources identified the person striking the woman in the video as Prejean.

On Friday, LPD spokesman Karl Ratcliff said the officer was allowed to retire after he was given a brief paid vacation.

The disturbing video was taken on New Year’s Eve night in a local bar. It shows the officer, who was entirely unprovoked, strike a woman in her forehead. The woman then hit him back before storming out of the bar.

If a police officer was willing to hit a woman in public space like a bar, one can only imagine what he would do in private.

Predictably enough, this is not the first time Prejean has been in the news. In fact, according to KLFY, this woman abusing cop has a history of corruption and a history of covering it up.

In 2016, the officer was transferred from his post as Lafayette metro narcotics captain due to a circumstance involving a 15th Judicial District assistant attorney who was terminated over the matter.

Neither the district attorney’s office or the police department sought further disciplinary action, however, the nature of the relationship between the two individuals was never disclosed.

-In 2014, Prejean was named in a federal lawsuit filed by 15 former police officers alleging corruption and retaliation within the department.

One plaintiff, who was fired from the LPD in 2013, claimed former Lafayette Police Chief Jim Craft terminated him for making allegations that Prejean was guilty of drinking and driving.

According to administrative documents obtained by The Daily Advertiser in 2013, the formal complaint concerning Prejean’s alleged impaired driving reportedly included video surveillance.

Because the officer who made the complaint would not reveal the identity of whoever provided him the video, which Craft claimed “to have possibly (been) edited”, the department said it could not prove that Prejean was under the influence.

Craft terminated the officer who made the allegations against Prejean for “violating three general orders of conduct”, according The Advertiser.

The suit and its appeal were both dismissed.

Now, this abusive and corrupt cop will likely get to keep his pension and retire on the taxpayers’ dime.

As TFTP has reported, police in the US beat their wives and girlfriends at nearly double the national average. And, a report by a government-appointed watchdog group shows that most of them do so with seeming impunity.

A study conducted by the Domestic Violence Task Force called Domestic Violence in the Los Angeles Police Department: How Well Does the Los Angeles Police Department Police Its Own? revealed that performance evaluations of cops with a history of domestic violence are largely unaffected. The study of the LAPD examined 91 cases in which an allegation of domestic violence was sustained against an officer.

  • Over three-fourths of the time, this sustained allegation was not mentioned in the officer’s performance evaluation.
  • Twenty-six of these officers (29%) were promoted, including six who were promoted within two years of the incident.

The report concluded that “employees with sustained allegations were neither barred from moving to desired positions nor transferred out of assignments that were inconsistent with the sustained allegation.”

Sadly, it is estimated that many of the abused women never come forward as they know the likely result — which is getting shamed by the department for reporting it and potentially more abuse.

Diane Wetendorf, a specialist on police abuse, points out the most common fears when reporting police domestic abuse in her handbook:

If your abuser is an officer of the law, you may be afraid to:

  • Call the police — He is the police.
  • Go to a shelter — He knows where the shelters are located.
  • Have him arrested — Responding officers may invoke the code of silence.
  • Take him to court — It’s your word against that of an officer, and he knows the system.
  • Drop the charges — You could lose any future credibility and protection.
  • Seek a conviction — He will probably lose his job and retaliate against you.

These fears can make someone feel incredibly trapped and feel like there is no way out.

If you or someone you know is a victim of this type of abuse we encourage you to no longer remain silent. As long as people go unpunished for their abuse, they will continue their abuse.

Film it, record it, expose it in any manner you can. Tell us your story and we will expose these abusive jackboots for the cowards they are.

Trial Begins For Hammond Cop Charged With Killing Ex-Girlfriend


Indiana – A Porter County jury stared at graphic photos Wednesday showing how a Portage woman was found shot dead with blood pooled in the carpet around her in 2015.

“So, how do we get to this place where she dies so violently?” asked prosecuting attorney Matthew Frost.

Frost turned and pointed to Kevin Campbell, 33, sitting in a suit with his defense attorneys at the Porter County courthouse in Valparaiso.

“We get to this place because the man sitting at the end of this table, Kevin A. Campbell, murdered her,” Frost said.

Attorneys presented opening arguments Wednesday after seating a jury Tuesday in Campbell’s murder trial stemming from the death Tiara Thomas, Campbell’s ex-girlfriend and his children’s mother.

Thomas, 30, was found shot Nov. 18, 2015, in the bedroom of her Portage apartment she shared with her fiance in the Park Place apartment complex.

Although he couldn’t see the screen, Campbell, a former Hammond police officer, wiped his eyes with a tissue as Frost showed Thomas’ autopsy photos during opening statements. When the courtroom cleared during a morning break, he cried as he sat alone at the defense table.

Susan Marie Severtson, one of Campbell’s attorneys, argued that there was a lack of eyewitness and scientific evidence in the case. No DNA evidence or fingerprints matching Campbell were found at Thomas’ apartment, she said.

At the end of the trial, Svertson argued, “You will not know who in fact killed Tiara Thomas.”

Thomas and Campbell had three children together, but the “relationship fell apart,” Frost said. It was a “contentious breakup,” and before Thomas died, Campbell’s child support “expanded exponentially,” he said.

When Campbell was arrested, Portage police said there may have been a financial motive involved, as Campbell’s vehicle had been repossessed, he had voice mails from creditors and his bank account balance was $7.58, according to court records.

“It was ruining his life,” Frost said.

Svertson countered that didn’t amount to motive. Thomas was Campbell’s “first love” and the two had known each other since elementary school, she said.

“He was happy to emotionally and financially support his children,” Svertson said.

Police questioned Marqtell Robinson, Thomas’ fiance who she lived with, but Robinson’s alibi that he had worked a midnight shift before he found her dead at 7 a.m. on Nov. 18, 2015, checked out, according to testimony from Ted Uzelac, Portage police assistant chief.

“He did not murder Tiara Thomas,” Frost said.

David Duttlinger, a Portage Fire Department paramedic, said he couldn’t say exactly when Thomas had been shot, but she wasn’t bleeding much when he arrived at the apartment, he said. The responding officers and paramedic said none of them smelled gunpowder in the apartment.

After questioning neighbors at the apartment complex, no one said they heard or saw anything, the officers testified.

Campbell’s trial continues Thursday and is expected to run three days a week for the next few weeks, attorneys said

Campbell is being held at Porter County Jail without bond.

15yo Afghan boy arrested after stabbing to death German ex-girlfriend

Home » Crimes, Eurabia, Europe, Multiculturalism » 15yo Afghan boy arrested after stabbing to death German ex-girlfriend



 


A 15-year-old Afghan boy is reportedly being held by police on suspicion of stabbing his ex-girlfriend to death during an argument in a grocery store in Germany. Well just as we said in our previous article, Germany does deserve to be on that map as a red state… this story only goes to prove our point among many other similar stories. Why would a German girl even date a brown Muslim Arab? Why would her parents allow her? Why date at such a young age? Why is that Arab even in Germany? So many questions here… WHY WHY WHY? Had her parents read that article and listened to us, they would have had their daughter alive today…

The attack took place at around 3:20pm local time in a grocery store in Kandel, a town in Rhineland-Palatinate on the German-French border, according to the newspaper Die Rhinepflatz. The boy was apprehended by passersby and held until police arrived at the scene.

The victim, a German national who was said to have broken off a months-long relationship with the accused earlier this month, reportedly entered the store along with a companion. The girl was then attacked with a kitchen knife. She died in hospital Wednesday afternoon.

Prosecutor Angelika Moehlig said that the unidentified suspect, who has been in Germany since April 2016, is being kept in custody on suspicion of manslaughter. The Associated Press reports that while the motive is not yet known, the girl’s parents filed a complaint against the accused on December 15 alleging slander and threats. RT.com has contacted the local prosecutor for comment.

'Neo-Nazi' Teen Charged With Killing Girlfriend's Parents After They Reported Him

A 17-year-old Virginia teen was charged with two counts of murder Saturday after he allegedly murdered his girlfriend’s parents. 

Scott Fricker, 48, and his wife Buckley Kuhn-Fricker, 43, were shot and killed in their home in Reston, Virginia, on Friday according to Fairfax County police. The teenager, who is not named due to his minor status, shot the Frickers after getting into their home. Police indicate that the teen also suffered from a self-inflicted gunshot wound and is currently in critical condition. 

The teen was dating the Frickers’ teenage daughter, but the parents pushed the young couple to break up. Kuhn-Fricker’s mother, Janet Kuhn, told ABC 7 that her daughter tried to separate the teens because they considered the boy to be dangerous and a white supremacist.

“They kept a tight eye on her and they disapproved of all the time she was spending with him, hours on the phone,” Kuhn told ABC.

Kuhn-Fricker alerted the principal of the teen’s high school to concerning social media posts from the boy and called him an “outspoken Neo-Nazi” in messages to friends, the Washington Post reports. She flagged social media posts where the boy lauded Hitler, supported Nazi book burnings and called for a “white revolution,” according the Post. 

“I would feel a little bad reporting him if his online access was to basically be a normal teen, but he is a monster, and I have no pity for people like that,” Kuhn-Fricker wrote in an email obtained by the Post. “He made these choices. He is spreading hate.”

After staging an intervention, the family believed their daughter had come to the realization that a breakup was in her best interest. But around 5 a.m. on Friday morning, Kuhn-Fricker and Fricker heard a noise and discovered the teenage boy in their daughter’s bedroom. The teen shot and killed the parents before inflicting a wound on himself, but none of the other four family members in the house were injured. 

The unnamed teen is under police guard and will be served his warrants depending on his medical condition, police say.

Philando Castile‘s Girlfriend Settles With St. Anthony For $800,000


The city of St. Anthony has agreed to a second legal settlement over the fatal shooting of Philando Castile by one of its police officers. And this time, with its insurance coverage all but used up, any settlement would largely come from city coffers.

The St. Anthony City Council on Tuesday night voted to pay $675,000 to settle legal claims brought by Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, and her daughter. The pair was in the car with Castile when he was shot to death during a traffic stop by then-St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez on July 6, 2016.

Before the unanimous vote to approve the settlement, Mayor Jerry Faust said he hoped it would “open the door to continued healing in our community.”

“If we don’t approve this and we go ahead with litigation, it would just reopen the whole case again and bring heartache to everyone involved,” Faust said. “It is best to settle.”

The council’s resolution approving the settlement said, in part, that it resolves any claims related to the alleged detention of and use of force against Reynolds and her daughter, and any claims of racial discrimination or emotional distress.

“While no amount of money can change what happened, bring Philando back, or erase the pain that my daughter and I continue to suffer,” Reynolds said in a statement to WCCO, “I do hope that closing this chapter will allow us to get our lives back and move forward.”

St. Anthony has a $3 million “per occurrence” cap on its insurance policy covering payments like this one through the League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust, but a settlement with Castile’s family in June used up $2.995 million of that.
