Disgraced Dem donor arrested in Colorado AP - 6 minutes ago
SAN FRANCISCO - Disgraced Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu was arrested in Colorado late Thursday after he failed to show up for a court appearance related to a felony theft conviction.
Here’s the link to the complete story.
Hope he doesn’t “accidently” commit suicide in jail.... Remember Vince Foster.
SAN FRANCISCO - Disgraced Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu was arrested in Colorado late Thursday on a warrant a judge issued after he failed to show up for a court appearance related to a felony theft conviction.
FBI agents took Hsu into custody at St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction, Colo., said FBI spokesman Joseph Schadler.
Hsu had been scheduled to appear in court Wednesday to turn over his passport and ask a judge to cut in half the $2 million bail he posted last week when he turned himself in after spending 15 years on the lam from a felony theft conviction.
Instead, Hsu failed to show up at the bail reduction hearing and a judge issued a new arrest warrant for him.
California Attorney General spokesman Gareth Lacy said Hsu's lawyers told prosecutors Hsu arrived by charter jet at the Oakland airport about 5:30 a.m. Wednesday local time and then wasn't heard from again.
When it became apparent that Hsu had fled the state, California authorities sought the assistance of the FBI, whose agents arrested him Thursday night on charges of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, Schadler said.
Once he is returned to state custody, the federal charges will be dismissed, Schadler said.
Do you think some lib judge will give him bail again? This is unreal but Im not surprised.
why was he in a hospital? i wonder if he went there and somebody recognized him and dropped a dime. he has a pretty distinctive look. especially in colorado.
This will be an interesting story tomorrow morning. It’s possible to have driven from Silicon Valley to Grand Junction in 36 hours but I’d bet that he flew.
I am surprised they found him alive. He probably has tons of dirt on dozens of Democrats. Re bail, almost anything is possible in zanny, nutty liberal California but I think granting him another “get out of jail” card again so soon after his escape is too outrageous even for the freaks on the west coast.
FBI agents arrested him Thursday night on charges of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, Schadler said. Once he is returned to state custody, the federal charges will be dismissed, Schadler said.
So under what circumstances would somebody be prosecuted for "unlawful flight to avoid prosecution"?
DOUGGGGG DUDEEE look what happen to Hsu
>>>So under what circumstances would somebody be prosecuted for “unlawful flight to avoid prosecution”?
They’re a Republican
Yep, I saw it, my friend.
BTW....there's probably no better way to cross the US unnoticed than Amtrak.
true, but this guys face was all over the news. he should have gone OJ (back of a truck under a tarp while his boy was driving). he had to have known that going into a hospital would have been very risky. should have toughed it out unless his arm was falling off.
He still has his passport? When will a court finally conclude that Hsu is a flight risk and confiscate his passport, refuse him bail and clap him in jail? Our judges are actually this stupid?
Actually probably beating him.
I can’t believe it! I thought he was in China or something.
Whoa! Why didn’t he leave the US, I wonder?
(I know none of you know why... just wondering online.)
Have you ever traveled the Zephyer? Newspapers are not a big ticket item on long halls. No TV either.
If he was traveling in coach, you are right. But if he was traveling in a sleeper, he got a local newspaper every morning.
I thought for sure he was back home in Hong Kong. Surely they will confiscate his Passport this time.
I believe this judge was appointed by Clinton. It was probably hoped that Hsu would make it out of the country.
Jimmy Hoffa could have been riding the trains since he disappeared. That's why no one has found him. LOL.
I’ve traveled from Denver to Chicago via Amtrak numerous times. I’ve noticed that the folks in sleepers seldom venture into the coach section. Additionally, the folks in coach are not allowed in the sleeper area. They are divided by the food service car. I once utilized the coach section and actually slept undisturbed from Denver to Galesburg IL. I’ll bet not one person saw my face once on the train.
Headline? China: Crackdown on 'illegal immigrants' likely to target North Korean refugees, fugitive fund raisers.
'We just want to give money to our friends, we don't want the delivery boys here,' said a Peoples Police border guard.
When you have a great compartment from which to watch the world go by and free meals in the dining car, why go into the coach section? On the Coast Starlight, you have the Pacific Parlor Car, an old 1955 Sante Fe bar car, which has plush seating, good booze and great views.
If I were Hsu, I'd get a Deluxe sleeper and stay inside except to eat.
Good news! For us. Bad for the Dems. Hehehe...
He could have boarded Amtrak at 1 of 16 stops from California to Grand Junction, CO. Many, if not most of the stops have unmanned stations and absolutely no security.
I’ll wager he took a cab from Oakland Airport to the train station and boarded there.
I'm a superstitious man, and if some unlucky accident should befall this Hsu - if he
is to be shot in the head by a police officer, or be found hung dead in a jail cell... or
if he should be struck by a bolt of lightning - then I'm going to blame some of the
people in the Clinton campaign; and that I do not forgive.
I've had food delivered to my sleeper in the past. I'll admit though, I haven't traveled via Amtrak for almost a year now. Cabin service could have easily been eliminated.
Okay Doug that cool I didn’t want you miss it LOL!
I think he was afraid that like so many others he would end up committing sewercide by shooting himself in the back of the right side of the head with his left hand.
These Clintons remind me of that husband and wife team up in Canada that killed her sister after being raped by her husband and then killing other young gals after the husband raped them.
I saw that on the Discovery channel and immediately thought of the Clintons.
Don’t know about cable, but nothing of this is on broadcast tv in my area - and I get 11 channels. Gee wonder why?
Read all the chapters. Nuts.
It’s about 1100 miles...
Two drivers trading off, averaging 65mph could make it in under 20 hours - stopping only for gas/food and head stops...
Boy, you're sneaky, Mr. Hsu!
Are you really just a shadow
donor of some people who
may be crazy commie Chi's
They aren't ordinary guys!
Don't you know you broke the rules?
Can you hear me, mister? (Hsu)
I thought for sure he was tied to a cinder block at the bottom of the ocean.
“I thought for sure he was tied to a cinder block at the bottom of the ocean.”
He does, too....
Which probably explains why he turns up on an Amtrak in Colorado...
I’d be on the lookout for Arkancide.
Just Awful, I agree with the cop who said she and him needed to die and not be allowed to walk the face of this earth.
Apparently Gonzales is still running our Justice Department.
Here's the guy who caught him...
this time he will be released on his own recognizance.
