  • Twin Peaks – Resist Snitch Disclosure To Bitter End

    Radio Legendary ^ | 11/2/2017
    The issue that has torn this city’s public safety services in two once again figured in a major felony case. Disclosure of confidential informants is so repugnant to police and fire department officials they will sacrifice entire blocks of prosecution in order to preserve the sacrosanct status of snitches. The policy is so ingrained it has caused a complete shakeup in the structure of upper leadership – the replacement of the Chiefs of Police and Fire Departments – and the ouster of seasoned investigators who won’t budge on the issue, one way or the other. All that bitter history came...

    A biker with a "big yellow helmet" who appeared to be in charge pulled out a "long, 'Dirty Harry'-type pistol" and fired the first shot in the May 2015 Twin Peaks biker brawl, a former Twin Peaks employee testified Tuesday. While testimony thus far has not revealed who was wearing the "big yellow helmet," previous video and photographic evidence presented by the state show Jacob Carrizal leading a band of Bandidos into Twin Peaks while riding a shiny blue motorcycle and wearing a yellow helmet. Also, a CNN special on the one-year anniversary of the shootout featured an interview with...

Kirschten, 23, was shot and killed Aug. 17 as she sat in her car waiting on a red light at Fortification and State streets, according to police.

A passenger in Kirschten’s car told police that the gunman, who was wearing dark clothing, didn’t take anything after the shooting and walked away, investigators said.

    As President Trump makes headway in eliminating ISIS, another brutal gang called MS-13 has raised its ugly head in the “sanctuary cities” of America. These cities will hide these gangs and offer them a refuge. A refuge from what? Among other things, American law enforcement, President Trump, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions and Trump have made a promise to the American people they will be safe from this Gang’s takeover of American neighborhoods. Whether the neighborhood is a small town, a city, or a rural area, this El Salvadorian gang helps themselves in preying upon American citizens. They are...

    CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y.—The air was thick with equal parts of hope and frustration at a community meeting in Central Islip on April 18, just a few blocks from where four young men were found murdered less than a week prior. Politicians, law enforcement, and hundreds of citizens turned out to voice their fears and concerns. Rep. Peter King (R–N.Y.) spoke of the MS-13 gang, which police say is suspected to be behind the murders. “MS-13 has to be crushed, it has to be defeated, it has to be destroyed,” King said. He was echoing the sentiment coming from the top...

    (THE HILL - Barf Alert) Attorney General Jeff Sessions says the MS-13 gang could be designated as a terrorist organization. Asked by Fox News's Tucker Carlson on Tuesday whether he thinks the designation would be helpful, Sessions replied, “I think so, perhaps. I believe it could qualify for that." ADVERTISEMENT "There are rules that I guess the State Department does to establish that," he added. El Salvador's government has already designated MS-13 a terrorist group. Sessions called the gang "one of the most violent gangs in the history of our country." “We can devastate this gang. We’re going after them,"...

    The FBI added fugitive Walter Yovany Gomez to its Ten Most Wanted list in connection with the 2011 murder of his friend for associating with a rival gang in Plainfield, N.J. Gomez was attempting to become a fully-fledged member of the MS-13 gang by carrying out the gang-ordered killing, according to the FBI. “To become a full-fledged member of MS-13 you have to kill someone on behalf of your local clique, or crew,” said Special Agent Dan Brunner in a statement on April 12. “Only then can you get the MS-13 letters tattooed on your body.”

    Chicago, IL – Police say a 15-year-old girl is the victim of a horrifying gang rape by a group who streamed the attack on Facebook Live. Fox News reports: None of the roughly 40 people who watched the video called police about the attack, investigators said. It’s the second time in months that Chicago police have investigated an apparent attack streamed live on Facebook. “Here’s what’s even more disturbing, more than the fact that they did this, there were so many people that saw it and didn’t pick up the phone to dial 911,” Johnson told WGN-TV. “That’s not right....

According to reports, Velasquez was serving time at the Rikers...

    SAGINAW (WWJ/AP) – A man whose drug-related prison sentence was commuted in November by President Barack Obama has been fatally shot at a federal halfway house in Michigan after two men with assault-style rifles sought him out, police said. Two men wearing masks went into Bannum Place in Saginaw on Monday night with plans to kill 31-year-old Damarlon Thomas, a former Saginaw gang member. Lt. David Kaiser said Thomas was shot several times by one of the men as some of the roughly two dozen people at the home were held at gunpoint.
