Police: ‘Sheer brutality’ as 3 officers slain in Baton Rouge ambush

The chaotic shootout between Baton Rouge officers and a lone gunman ranged around a series of commercial buildings before a SWAT officer killed the suspect with a 100-yard shot, police said Monday.
The gunman, Gavin Eugene Long, 29, of Kansas City, Mo., had an IWA Tavor SAR 5.56-caliber rifle and Springfield 9.9mm pistol with him during the shootout Sunday morning, according to Col. Michael Edmonson, superintendent of state police. Another Stag Arms M4 Variant 5.56-caliber semi-automatic rifle was at his rented Chevrolet Malibu car, Edmonson said.
The guns are being analyzed for the chain of ownership, he said.
By watching videos from the area around a car wash and convenience store where the shooting occurred, police said Long ignored civilians and shot only at police, Edmonson said.

A manhunt is underway for an Afghan-born U.S. citizen suspected of plotting three bombings in New York and New Jersey over the weekend.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahami are being asked to contact police immediately. He should not be approached, as he is considered armed and dangerous.

The Saturday bombings in Manhattan and Seaside Park, New Jersey, as well as the attempted bombing of the Elizabeth, New Jersey train station have authorities believing there may be a terror cell active in the area.

The idea has the law enforcement community on edge as New York City prepares to host delegates from around the world at the United Nations General Assembly this week.

According to the FBI’s wanted poster, Rahami is a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in Afghanistan. He is about 5’6″ tall and weighs about 200 pounds, with brown hair, eyes and facial hair.

‘We need to get this guy in right away,’ New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said on CNN. ‘My experience is one the FBI zeroes in on someone, they will get them.’

The FBI also revealed that Rahami’s last known residence was in Elizabeth, New Jersey, where five pipe bombs were found at the town’s train station on Sunday.

FBI agents conducted a raid of the apartment Monday morning, which is located above a fried chicken restaurant his family owns.

Five people have been taken into custody in connection with the Chelsea bombing after the FBI discovered a bomb cache in New Jersey and stopped a car near New York City’s Verrazano Bridge on Sunday night.

The FBI is believed to have called the NYPD for backup at around 8.45pm after making the decision to halt a car on the busy Belt Parkway and found the occupants were heavily armed.

No one has been charged with any crime and the investigation is continuing says the FBI who confirmed all five individuals are from New Jersey.

According to the New York Daily News, law enforcement later discovered three pipe bombs and two smaller devices at a train station in Elizabeth, New Jersey, near to Newark Liberty International Airport.

According to Elizabeth Mayor Christian Bollwage, two unidentified men found a package in a trash bin around 9.30pm and decided to take it because they ‘thought it was of some value’.

When they saw wires and the pipe they dropped it and called Elizabeth Police.

Police deployed a robot to examine the device which Bollwage described as a ‘possible live bomb’ and are currently on scene.

All train traffic out of Manhattan to New Jersey was immediately halted while the bomb squad was dispatched.

State Sen. Martin Golden said the incident is connected to what happened in Chelsea and the FBI later confirmed that it was.

Fox News
18 Sept 2016
 
Authorities on Sunday vowed to bring to justice the person responsible for planting an explosive device in a New York City neighborhood, as officials downplayed the possibility of an international terror connection to the fiery Saturday night blast.

 
All 29 people injured in the explosion, which happened on West 23rd Street in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood, had been released from area hospitals by Sunday morning, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said during a news conference. Authorities were now squarely focusing on who placed the explosive device on West 23rd Street, and a second, unexploded device four blocks away.

Insanity | Neglect, Abuse, Rape, Murder of Children

Mother, boyfriend and cousin are arrested for brutal rape and murder of girl who was injected with meth, stabbed, strangled, dismembered and set on fire on her 10th birthday

On the day a girl was going to celebrate her 10th birthday, she was found murdered in her family’s apartment in New Mexico by police officers, her dismembered remains wrapped in a burning blanket.

Mother ‘stood by and watched’
The scene Wednesday morning in apartment number 808 of the Arroyo Villas complex was like something out of a horror movie. A man and a woman had allegedly drugged a little girl, then raped, killed and dismembered her.
Most would expect the girl’s mother to fight with everything she had to save her daughter. But Michelle Martens, according to her own reported account to police, is not that kind of mother.
In her statement to police, it appears that Martens wanted to watch as her boyfriend, Fabian Gonzales, 31, and his cousin Jessica Kelley, 31, raped her 10-year-old daughter Victoria Martens before killing her and trying to dispose of her body.

Mother of 10-year-old girl found dismembered on her birthday ‘offered her daughter to be raped by strangers online and by colleagues’
The mother of a 10-year-old New Mexico girl found dead and dismembered told police she sought men online and at work to sexually assault her daughter.
Michelle Martens told police that she had set up encounters with at least three men to sexually assault her daughter, Victoria Martens, the Albuquerque Journal  reported.
Michelle, 35, told investigators that one of the men was a co-worker. Two others she met online, including Fabian Gonzales, 31. He was to be the last.

Man Calls Out Black Lives Matter For Not Helping La. Flood Victims

Jerry L. Washington, a Baton Rouge native, posted a video to Facebook, asking why activists haven’t done anything to help the majority African-American city.
“Where are the Black Lives Matter and the Black Panthers?” Washington says in the video. “Because I ain’t seen one Black Panther boat or one Black Lives Matter boat. All I see is our own people from our own city saving us.”

The black cop who has a problem with ‘Black Lives Matter’

“Black Lives do not matter to most black people…Only the lives that are taken at the hands of cops or white people, matter.”
In his lengthy digital essay  former Baltimore police officer Jay Stalien challenged assertions that black people are unfairly penalised by law enforcement. It was his arguments about black-on-black violence that seemed to get the most attention. Drawing on his own experience, Stalien said he chose a career in law enforcement because:
“I watched and lived through the crime that took place in the hood. My own black people killing others over nothing. Crack heads and heroin addicts lined the lobby of my building as I shuffled around them to make my way to our 1 bedroom apartment with 6 of us living inside. I wanted to help my community and stop watching the blood of African Americans spilled on the street at the hands of a fellow black man.”
