Man says assistant swindled him out of $400K
By Kathianne Boniello
May 1, 2016 | 11:44am

A retired Manhattan attorney says his personal assistant helped herself to nearly $400,000 of his dough while he was injured.

Stuart Wechsler, 84, hired Ilsa Alejandra Hernandez in 2013 as he recovered from a fall-related injury. But she quickly helped herself to his bank accounts, according to a lawsuit he filed against the Queens woman.

Hernandez, 27, was supposed to have the “skills of both a nurse and an accountant,” to help Wechsler run errands, pay bills and manage his finances as he healed.

“Everybody trusted her,” he told The Post.

Instead, she used his ATM card to make hefty withdrawals of $2,000, wrote checks to herself, forged his signature and ultimately stole $394,000 over the course of two years, he alleges in Manhattan Supreme Court papers.

The theft continued after she was fired in January, he claims.

Hernandez hooked her iPhone and son’s iPad up to Wechsler’s Dish Network account, and “they continue to be used by the defendants to this day,” the lawsuit says.

“Hopefully justice will be done at some point,” Wechsler said.

Hernandez could not be reached for comment.

Texas police chief takes down Midtown thief

An off-duty Texas police chief got a taste of fighting crime in the Big Apple – apprehending a violent thief who interrupted his Fifth Avenue shopping excursion.

Sean Ford, chief of the Sunset Valley Police Department in Austin, Texas, had just come out of Gucci’s flagship store around 3 p.m. Friday when he saw two men scuffling in the street.

“They started fighting. I didn’t know what was going on at first. I thought it was maybe a mugging,” Ford told The Post.

Police said 46-year-old Roman Mercado, a career criminal with about 50 priors dating back to 1984, had just swiped four bottles of perfume from nearby Abercrombie & Fitch worth $118 and tried to flee without paying. When one of the retailer’s employees chased after Mercado and confronted him, he began lashing out and throwing punches.

A crowd of people gathered around the fight, which moved a few blocks north to outside The Plaza Hotel, but they were all snapping photos instead of stopping it.

So Ford told his family to call 911 and then stepped in to break up the beat-down.

“It started getting a lot more violent. The guy was really swinging at him, so I decided it was time to get involved,” Ford said.

“I just took his arm behind his back and told him I was a police officer and that he needed to stop struggling and stay where he was at.”

The veteran cop, who has been working as a police officer in Texas since 1995, held him until reinforcements from the NYPD showed up.

Mercado was cuffed and carted off to Midtown North. He was arraigned Saturday for petit larceny – less than a month after he faced similar charges for stealing a set of headphones.

The responding officers, including one of the sergeants from the precinct, all made sure to thank Ford for his spur-of-the-moment action – even sending out a tweet that gave him credit for nabbing Mercardo.

“It was typical NYPD, what we think about them from all over the country,” an appreciative Ford said. “They really treated us well.”

And this wasn’t his first time helping out his “brothers in blue,” coming down with a team from Texas in the months following the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

“I have a lot of respect for the NYPD ever since 9/11,” Ford said.

Fayetteville PD make arrest in murder of 72-year-old found dead at car dealership
Updated: May 1, 2016, 10:01 am



FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) – Fayetteville Police have made an arrest in connection with the murder of a man who was found dead at a used car dealership on April 27.



Joseph Carl Wallace, 72, of Fayetteville, was found dead Wednesday around 2:35 p.m. at Quality Automotive, police said.

Detectives identified 48-year-old Ambrose Dumone Murray, of the 1700 block of Powatan Street, as the suspect in Wallace’s murder. Warrants were obtained charging Murray with first-degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon, and larceny of a motor vehicle.

Murray was a former employee of Wallace, police said.

Two cars were stolen from the dealership, a silver 2003 Toyota Camry and a black 2008 BMW 328i, police said. The Camry was found burned at the end of Squirrel Street on Tuesday, a day before Wallace’s body was found.

At approximately 7 p.m. on Saturday, officers located and apprehend Murray in the area of N. Pearl Street. Police said Murray was arrested without incident. The same BMW 328i stolen from the dealership was found in the 200 block of Person Street later on Saturday night.

Prince lyrics cost Nashville sports anchor job
9:12 p.m. CDT April 30, 2016



A Nashville television sports anchor has apparently lost his job because he mixed Prince lyrics into a recent broadcast.

WZTV Fox-17 sports anchor Dan Phillips used a Prince-themed sports report on April 21.

When contacted by The Tennessean, he would not confirm that was why he was fired from the Sinclair Broadcast Group-owned station and said he did not want to comment. Phillips worked at the station for 10 years.

However, Phillips posted on his Facebook page that was the reason he was let go.

Singapore man sues local Chinese friend Albert Chin for stealing $3M car collection

Singapore man sues local friend for stealing $3M car collection
By Kathianne Boniello
May 1, 2016 | 4:47am

A Queens man drove a friend to legal action by wrongly laying claim to his $3 million car collection, according to a new lawsuit.

Albert Chin, 49, sold off fancy cars that didn’t belong to him, says a baffled pal from Singapore who asked Chin to handle his purchases in the US.

Chin has known Chris Au since the two were students at NYU 30 years ago, and Chin was best man at Au’s wedding. Both are avid car collectors.

Au says he would send Chin money to buy fancy rides like a Ferrari Dino 246 GT, worth $300,000 to $400,000, or a 1994 Porsche Speedster, which can sell for up to $200,000.

In return, Au claims, Chin was to handle the details of the purchases, arrange for any work on the cars, and store them in a Long Island warehouse.

Chin’s only compensation was being allowed to drive the luxury rides, Au says in his Brooklyn federal court lawsuit.

But everything changed in 2015 when Chin went silent, Au says.

Au alleges Chin sold some of his precious autos without permission, including Au’s 2005 Superformance Cobra Mk3 and a 1991 Alfa Romeo Spider.

Chin tried to say the vehicles belonged to him, according to Au.

The lawsuit seeks $3 million. Chin declined to comment.

Autopsy Pending On Inmate Jailed Last Week For Having Sex With 16-Year-Old Girl
April 30, 2016 4:44 PM

CASTAIC (CBSLA.com) — Authorities have identified the inmate who was found dead in a Castaic jail facility a week after he was sentenced to a year behind bars for having sex with a 16-year-old girl.

The deceased was identified Saturday as 47-year-old Carson resident Herman Charles Nash, a former personal trainer and girls basketball coach.

The death at the Pitchess Detention Center North Facility at 29340 The Old Road was reported to the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at 4:54 p.m. Wednesday,
according to Deputy Ryan Rouzan.

The circumstances of Nash’s death are under investigation and details were not released.

Nash was taken into custody immediately after the sentencing hearing to begin serving his jail term stemming from his March 3 no-contest plea to three counts of unlawful sexual intercourse.


Defense attorney Robert Schwartz called his client a “beloved figure in the community” and a “remarkable man who made a terrible mistake.”

Nash had been scheduled for release on October 9, about halfway through the one-year sentence, according to sheriff’s online inmate records.

They believed the suspects cars went to the next block and headed north.

Book Review: Tanner’s “Retreat to Victory? Confederate Strategy Reconsidered”

May 1st, 2016
Book Review: "Retreat to Victory? Confederate Strategy Reconsidered," by Tanner
(Apollonian, 29 April 16)

Robert G. Tanner's book, "Retreat To Victory? Confederate Strategy Reconsidered," Scholarly Resources, Inc., Wilmington, Del. 2001; 148 pages text, xxiii, 162, w. index, provides most important analysis for the Southern strategy during War for Southern Independence. Tanner's discussion compares situation of Southern military forces w. Von Clausewitz's general analysis of strategy and well demonstrates the dire and urgent position of the Confederacy which actually could not afford a Fabian -type strategy, withdrawing, avoiding battle w. Union forces, falling-back to some "interior"--which didn't really exist, for various cogent and difficult-to-deny reasons. The work is especially outstanding as it's short, but quite well-written and most excellently researched and referenced, rather an un-beatable combination. The only defect is failure to analyze the North's weaknesses, but at least the southern weaknesses are thoroughly considered.

Tanner does tremendous work, general analysis based much upon Von Clausewitz, esp. for the link btwn military strategy and the political exigencies, including economics. Thus Southern forces could not retreat too far as the south was agrarian and especially slave -based economy and these had to be defended fm union forces, esp. for retainment of the slave investment, expensive and not easily replaced. Thus Tanner analyzes geographic circumstances, especially, along w. other military and strategic ideas, and further, considers the work of other authors who analyzed southern options and circumstances.

To begin, it's best taking the naval situation into observance, surely one of Tanner's best accomplishments, consisting first of the Union's ocean blockade which was never too effective by itself even towards the end of the war. However, the Union naval superiority was key for transport of regular army troops who were landed and then were able to close the Confederate ports and commerce by means of simple land operations capturing fortifications and cities. The South's leading port of New Orleans, for example, was captured very early in 1862, union forces then enabled to closing the Mississippi River working both fm north and south directions, the trans-Mississippi (Tex., Ark., and Mo.) then rendered practically irrelevant to the rest of the conflict.

But most important and telling was union mastery of the river-ways, thus enabled to penetrating far inland upon the south, esp. fm the northern bases on the Mississippi, moving then to the Cumberland and Tennessee rivers--even before capture of Vicksburg in 1863. Note also the slave population was based upon the inland river system which afforded the North a great strategic advantage for possible threats and Southern necessity of defense. For the slave-based agriculture was the South's chief economic asset, very theme of its existence, what most set it apart fm the North. River communications were far more economical as railways had to be guarded by up to a third of the invading army's forces.

Given then Northern advantage of population, more than two to one in total population, closer to four to one in respective white populations, the South's other resort would have been for war of maneuver which was only marginally successful in the case of Stonewall Jackson's Valley campaign of 1862, but not so successful for Kirby-Smith in Kentucky; the fundamental problem was there just wasn't that much room in which to maneuver in the south alone.

Unfortunately, Tanner's work doesn't much consider the Gettysburg campaign, for outstanding example, by which Lee should have gone for the un-defended cities of Harrisburg or Philadelphia, and even Baltimore, and luring Meade's army out of the high-ground and fortifications to a battle of maneuver. For again, it really seems the South had to make things more difficult for the North politically, regardless the damage to the south, if the South seriously had hopes to winning the war, or at least stalemating the North and gaining independence. Thus it was essential for the South to strike the north early and quickly as possible so as to cause most damage, economically and especially politically--this was essential as being placed on defensive was fatal.

Overall, if there is any lacking for the work's analysis, I'd say it would be for considering the North's weaknesses which it had in way of corrupt politics and thus rather weak military leadership, at least at first--the South had to strike at these weaknesses most vigorously in the early part of the war, for a war of attrition was fatal, as it turned out, the South steadily crushed, as by Sherman in 1864-5. So even though somewhat incomplete for fullest analysis, Tanner's work is most informative for accurate picture of Southern strategic problems which were steadily turned to advantage by Northern forces.

Undercover cops arrest two in the Bronx
By Natalie Musumeci
April 30, 2016 | 12:47pm

Plainclothes cops arrested two combative men – each packing a loaded gun – during a patrol in The Bronx on Friday, authorities said.

The officers saw two suspicious men, one who was smoking a cigarette, walk into a grocery store on Hoe Avenue near East 163rd Street in Hunts Point at around 6 p.m., cops said.

When the officers followed the pair into the store, one of them, identified as 23-year-old Evan Zachary, shoved an officer as he bolted out of the store, police said.

Four of the officers chased Zachary on foot into a nearby building where they observed him tossing a firearm.

Police arrested Zachary and recovered the .380-caliber Tanfoglio semiautomatic gun.

During the pursuit, two other officers at the grocery store approached Zachary’s cigarette-smoking accomplice, Darrel Jones, 26, cops said.

As the cops got closer, Jones turned and reached toward his waistband. When one of the officers grabbed Jones, he put up a fight, knocking an officer to the ground, police said.

During the struggle, the .22-caliber Taurus semiautomatic Jones was holding fell to the ground and he was arrested outside the store.

Zachary of West Harlem and Jones of West Farms in The Bronx were both charged with assault on a police officer, two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

None of the officers was seriously injured.

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Police arrested a woman who they said is connected to the death of a Southaven man.

The body of Calvin Holloway, 25, was found Wednesday in a field near Crossfield and Holmes Roads. The Shelby County Medical examiner ruled Holloway’s death a homicide.

Police said an investigation revealed that Rebecca Allison, 21, was one of the suspects at the scene when Holloway was killed.

Investigators found Allison at the Southern Inn & Suites on Stateline Road in Southaven, where she agreed to come to the homicide office in Memphis for further investigation.

Officers said Allison gave a statement admitting to having knowledge of Holloway’s death, being in Holloway’s vehicle after his death, wiping evidence from the vehicle, and leaving the vehicle in Oakshire Apartments.

The medical examiner has yet to reveal the cause of Holloway’s death.

HILO, Hawaii — The parents of a Hawaii boy who has been missing for nearly 20 years have been charged with murder after authorities reopened the case and re-evaluated the evidence.

The boy’s parents have long been suspects in the 1997 disappearance of then 6-year-old Peter Kema Jr., known as “Peter Boy,” but prosecutors said there hadn’t been enough evidence to charge them until now.

Peter Kema Sr. had told authorities he took his son to Oahu and gave him to a longtime family friend.

A grand jury indicted Peter and Jaylin Kema on second-degree murder charges Wednesday. The boy’s father is being held on $500,000 bail after being arrested Thursday on an unrelated traffic offense. The mother was arrested in Hilo and her bail has been set at $150,000.

It’s not clear whether the parents have attorneys. The Hilo public defender’s office said they couldn’t confirm or deny they were representing the parents.

The young boy in the late 1990s and early 2000s became the face of a campaign for missing and abused children. Posters and bumper stickers asked, “Where’s Peter Boy?”

His father told authorities he took the child to Oahu and gave him to an “Aunty Rose Makuakane” in an informal adoption. Police could not find a woman as described by Kema or airline records indicating he had flown there.

In 2005, then-state Human Services Director Lillian Koller released more than 2,000 pages of heavily redacted documents, with details of abuse allegedly suffered by Peter Boy and his siblings at the hands of their father.

The youngest, Devalynn, told a psychologist in 1998 that she saw Peter Boy dead in a box, but the then-5-year-old girl also told the psychologist her brother was alive in Honolulu. The psychologist noted the girl’s understanding of death was consistent with her age and could lead her to believe a person could become alive again after death.

The girl, now an adult and known as Lina Acol, also told the psychologist that Peter Sr. gave both Peter Boy and her mother “dirty lickins,” which she described as punching, hitting and slapping, and that Peter Boy was tied up with chains and ropes.

The boys’ parents had denied any wrongdoing.

Brooklyn men try to dine-and-dash at Applebee’s, injure officer during arrest: police
Posted 12:43 PM, April 29, 2016

VALLEY STREAM, N.Y. — Two men have been arrested for trying to dine-and-dash at Applebee’s, then violently struggling with officers who were trying to arrest them.

Isiah Peters, 18 of Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and Leon E. Thomas 19, of Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn along with a five-year-old family member went to eat at an Applebee’s at 1126 Green Acres Road at 7:50 p.m., Nassau County police said.

Together, they ordered and ate around $50 worth of food. They tried to pay the bill with credit cards that were declined, then fled without paying, police said.

15 minutes later, they returned to the restaurant. Police responded and tried to put the suspects under arrest for theft of services.

Peters and Thomas began to violently resist arrest by fighting with officers — one officer sprained his right thumb and was taken to the hospital to treat it, police said.

Peters again violently struggled with officers as they attempted to secure him in the cell, police said.

Police also found forged credit cards on the suspects. The 5-year-old was picked up by another family member.

Thomas was charged with possession of a forged instrument, theft of services, endangering the welfare of a minor and resisting arrest.

JPD: Man arrested for kidnapping, sexual assault connected another crime
Published: April 29, 2016, 12:48 pm



JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — The man arrested in connection with a recent sexual assault and kidnapping that happened at a Jackson apartment complex has been linked to another crime.

Officer Colendula Green said Aburey Jones was arrested Thursday on four counts of kidnapping, four counts of armed robbery of an individual, and sexual battery.

He’s accused of forcing people into an apartment at The Park At Moss Creek on Tuesday. He allegedly robbed them at gunpoint; he is also accused of sexually assaulting a victim.

On Friday, Green said investigators connected Jones to a crime that happened on Saturday, April 16, that happened at the same apartment complex. Green said a man with a gun went up to two people. The suspect forced one of the people into a car and made them drive to an ATM. The victim was forced to withdraw money from the bank.

Student beaten on Blue Line says bystanders did nothing to stop attack



Friday, April 29, 2016 05:01PM
CHICAGO (WLS) --
A student was attacked on the CTA Blue Line in broad daylight - and she says other people on the train just watched as she was beaten.

Jessica Hughes was on her way home when she was attacked while sitting in a rail car near the Blue Line stop at Harrison and Kedzie.

"If you were seeing someone else getting abused, wouldn't you want to step in?" Hughes said.

Hughes said that perhaps more painful than the beating she took at the hands of two robbers while riding the "L", is that fellow passengers who saw the attack, did nothing to stop it.

"I was yelling for help. There were two other guys on the train and they did nothing. They just watched as he beat me," she said.

The DePaul student says she was brutally attacked Thursday around 10 a.m. as she rode a CTA Blue Line train home from campus.

Woman attacked while riding Blue Line, suspects sought
Posted 4:55 PM, April 29, 2016

CHICAGO -- Police are seeking two suspects in the brutal beating of a woman who was riding the CTA Blue Line yesterday morning.

The beating happened around 10 a.m Thursday on a CTA Blue Line train headed west, approaching the Kedzie-Homan stop.

19-year-old DePaul student Jessica Hughes was on her way home to Berwyn from a morning class and says after a large group of people got off the train at the UIC Halstead stop, a man moved to the seat in front of her, turned around and attacked.

“He grabs me, pushes me to the floor and starts beating on my head repeatedly,” J
essica said.

The man wanted Jessica’s phone. It was in her pocket. A woman who was with the attacker jumped in and punched Jessica in the nose, breaking it.


All the while, two male passengers stood by and watched.

“He kept beating on me. I'm yelling help to the other people and no one came “

The suspects did not get Jessica's phone. They ran off the train.

The attackers were captured on surveillance video.

“I'm just hoping everything they need is on that video,” Jessica said. “And they're able to get those people that did this to me.”She described the attacker as an African American man in his mid-20's. She says he had facial hair, was wearing a blue Ralph Lauren polo hat, a grey hoodie and baggy pants that were sagging below his waist.:rolleyes:

She says the woman, also African American in her mid-20's was extremely thin, with long black hair.

$25k reward for Pike County killer revoked due to ‘complex criminal developments’

Apr 29, 2016

Link: http://rinf.com/alt-news/newswire/25...-developments/

A reward of $25,000 offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the killer responsible for eight deaths in Piketon, Ohio has been withdrawn. The Cincinnati restaurateur behind the reward cited “complex criminal developments.”

With recent complex criminal developments in Pike Co case, we are withdrawing our reward and involvement. Grieving and praying for family.

— Jeff Ruby (@TheRealJeffRuby) April 28, 2016


Jeff Ruby took to Twitter to announce that he was withdrawing his reward and involvement from the Pike County case, and although he would not elaborate, he did tell another user that he had six kids and four grandchildren after the user said, “I would guess he doesn’t want the Mexican cartel coming after him, but that’s just me.”

In terms of criminal developments, Ruby could have been referring to the marijuana sites found on the Rhoden family’s property. The setups were found on three of the four properties where eight members of the family had been killed execution style. However, law enforcement officials have yet to announce any connection to larger scale criminal organizations.


The sibling of one of the deceased told NBC News that he hadn’t heard anything about his brother’s involvement in a drug operation until Sunday.

“It doesn’t make a difference,” he said. “That doesn’t change what happened.“

According to WXIX, more than 30 people have been interviewed by law enforcement officers – including anyone with an ax to grind with the Rhoden family, such as Rusty Mongold, who had posted on Facebook about a kerfuffle he got into with Christopher Rhoden, 16. WCPO reported that Mongold has declared his innocence, claiming the fight between him and Rhoden only lasted a few days and providing an alibi for his whereabouts during the massacre.

Despite the attention the case has received, police have yet to announce a suspect or a motive for the killing.

Anyone with information is asked to call 1-855-BCI-OHIO.

Think Fukushima is a threat, an on-going disaster?–ck-out Hanford Wa. here in Jew S A

Hanford, Not Fukushima, is the Big Radiological Threat to the West Coast

by Robert Jacobs

Link: http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/04/...he-west-coast/


There is a dangerous radiological threat to the West Coast of the United States that puts the health of millions of Americans at risk. It includes dangers to public health, dangers to the food supply, and dangers to future generations from long-lived radionuclides, including some of the most toxic material in the world. It is not Fukushima, it is Hanford. While radiation from the Fukushima nuclear meltdowns is reaching the West Coast, carried across the ocean from Japan, the radiation from Hanford is already there, has been there for 70 years, and is in serious risk of catastrophe that could dwarf the effects of Fukushima even on Japan.

Hanford, on the Columbia River in Eastern Washington State, is the site where the United States produced the majority of its plutonium for nuclear weapons during the Cold War. These tens of thousands of American nuclear weapons were built as an end product of the high levels of plutonium production at Hanford. The first three nuclear reactors on Earth were built at Hanford, with a total of nine nuclear power plants being built there eventually. Nuclear power plants operated for ten years in this world before they were ever used to generate electricity. Electricity is a secondary purpose for nuclear power plants, they were designed and built as plutonium manufacturing plants.

Hanford was the first of these plutonium production sites. The two worst radiological disasters (besides nuclear weapon detonations) in the first four decades of the Atomic Age were accidents at the plutonium production sites of the United Kingdom and the Soviet Union, both in 1957. Military plutonium production sites remain among the most contaminated sites on Earth. During the period of operation more than 67 metric tons of plutonium were manufactured at Hanford. Hanford is home to 60% (by volume) of all of the high level radioactive waste stored in the United States. Nearly 80% of the Department of Energy’s inventory of spent nuclear fuel rods are stored just 400 yards away from the Columbia River. (Statistics taken from Physicians for Social Responsibility webpage)

Here is a very brief review of some of the worst impacts and dangers at the Hanford Site.

The Green Run

In December 1949 the United States deliberately released an immense amount of radiation into populated areas at the Hanford Site during the notorious Green Run. It was the largest intentional release of radiation conducted by the U.S. government. While nuclear testing in Nevada exposed many people to significant amounts of radiation, this was a byproduct of the desire to test weapons. In the Green Run the intention was specifically to release the radiation into the Hanford area. The Green Run was conducted in reaction to the test of the first Soviet nuclear weapon in Kazakhstan several months earlier. The first indications that the Soviets had successfully tested a nuclear weapon came when sensors at Hanford picked up the radiation several days later. It was decided to release radiation “similar” to that of the Soviet test to develop and hone detection equipment and better analysis of the Soviet program.

After the end of World War Two the U.S. method of processing the plutonium from the spent nuclear fuel rods involved “maturing” the rods, or letting them cool for approximately 100 days to allow short-lived nuclear isotopes (like iodine-131) to decay. Kate Brown has a detailed discussion of the decisions that eventually led to extending this maturing period at Hanford during this time in her pivotal book, Plutopia. The U.S. assumed that in their rush to produce nuclear weapons as quickly as possible the Soviets were “short-cooling” their plutonium being manufactured at the Mayak Complex, and thus processing the plutonium before these short-lived radionuclides had decayed. The Green Run was a plan to mimic this and process plutonium that had not cooled for 100 days, but instead had cooled only a few weeks and was, hence, “green.” To increase the ability of the radiation detection equipment in the area, and on the airplanes that participated, the filters at the plutonium processing plants that specifically filtered out iodine-131 were turned off for the 12-hour duration of the Green Run.

As bad as this deliberate release of radiation into the downwind communities was, things did not go as planned. The intended amount of iodine-131 to be released was dwarfed by the actual release, which was double what was anticipated. While scientists imagined they would then be tracking a coherent cloud as it moved away from the site, the resulting radiation dispersed throughout a vast area stretching across much of Washington State and into Southern Oregon. Concentrations were found in valleys and lowlands as the radiation distributed irregularly. Internalizing iodine-131 is a direct cause of thyroid cancer.

The Tank Farms

Few things pose as great a threat to public health at Hanford than the Tank Farms. The Tank Farms are 177 single and double shelled waste storage tanks sited at two different locations on the Hanford complex. In the early days at Hanford, when plutonium for nuclear weapons was separated from the spent nuclear fuel, the leftover uranium from the process was stored in these tanks. Over the years a wide range of the highest level radioactive and chemical wastes were dumped into these tanks. According to the State of Washington the 177 tanks hold 53 million gallons of the highest level radioactive waste existing in the United States. 67 of the single shelled tanks have leaked over 1 million gallons of this highly radioactive waste which is migrating through the soil and groundwater into the Columbia River. In 2011 the Department of Energy emptied the contents of many of the leaking single shelled tanks into double shelled tanks, however the design of the double shelled tanks was found to be flawed, resulting in further leaks.

Dealing with the 53 million gallons of highly radioactive waste is a multi-billion-dollar effort designed to manage the waste by 2050, or roughly 100 years after it was first manufactured. Currently almost nothing has yet been accomplished towards this goal besides the paying out of the contracts to design plans and begin the construction of the “Vitrification Plant” that is intended to encase the waste in glass. In recent years’ numerous whistleblowers have come forward from among Hanford employees to describe the flawed design and safety protocols of the Vit Plant. Most of these whistleblowers have been fired by the contractors running the Hanford cleanup. One, Walter Tamosaitis, the research and technology manager of the Vit Plant, was vindicated and awarded $4.3M to settle his wrongful termination suit, however other whistleblowers have been dismissed from their positions since that award. While the liquid waste has been extracted from the tanks the remaining high level waste in the tanks remains largely untreated.

Hanford employees who work maintaining the Tank Farms have suffered serious and unexplained health problems in recent years. Each year numerous workers have been exposed to “vapors” and have become sick or lost consciousness and required hospitalization. Many have suffered ongoing health problems as a result of these exposures. In 2014 over 40 workers suffered from such exposures including a two-week period in late March that saw 26 workers hospitalized. According to KGW news in Portland, a 1997 study conducted by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory warned that workers exposed to vapors from specific tanks would have significantly increase risk of cancers and other serious diseases, but the conclusions of this report “were never made public, shared with Hanford workers or members of the federally chartered Hanford Advisory Board.”

On 29 September 1957 a tank containing waste similar to the waste in the Hanford Tank Farms exploded at the Mayak plutonium production site in the former Soviet Union, known as the Kyshtym Disaster. The cooling system for one of the tanks at the Mayak site failed and the temperature inside the tank rose eventually causing a chemical explosion that sent a radioactive cloud for over 350 km downwind and heavily contaminated an area near the plant with catastrophic levels of cesium-137 and strontium-90. This was one of the worst radiological disasters in human history at the time, and remained so, along with the fire three weeks later inside a nuclear reactor core at the Windscale facility (now called Sellafield) in Cumbria in the United Kingdom, until the Chernobyl meltdown and explosion in 1987. The Kyshtym Disaster, which a Soviet study concluded resulted directly in 8,000 deaths (not to mention illnesses) was the consequence of an explosion in one tank. At Hanford there are currently 177 such tanks, each containing similar disastrous potential, and located beside one another.

Contaminations and Dangers

The EPA has identified between 1,500-1,200 specific sites on the Hanford grounds where toxic or radioactive chemicals have been dumped. The ambiguity of that number speaks volumes about the lack of record keeping and functional data for addressing these problems. If plans for remediation of the waste in the Tank Farms at the Hanford Site are carried out as intended, there remains massive contamination of the soil and groundwater under the site, leeching into the Columbia River and surrounding countryside. That is if things go well. Things could go badly. The Kyshtym Disaster shows the dangers of an explosion in one of the tanks storing waste such as that stored in the 177 tanks at the Hanford Tank Farms. An incident in which multiple tanks experience problems could be catastrophic beyond our imagination. What’s more, there is not effective containment or security at the Tank Farms to face the threats of current times. While the countries around the world worry about the dangers of flying airplanes or drones into nuclear power plants, or of cyber attacks on the power supplies to such plants, those sites have at least some effective containment around the toxic materials they hold. The Tank Farms are open air and unshielded. The amount of deadly radiological materials contained in these tanks is far beyond that contained at any single nuclear site in the United States.

Hanford is Here, Fukushima is There

The triple meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi was a horrible disaster that has released massive amounts of radiation into the environment. The daily passage of tons of water through the watershed below the plants where the melted nuclear cores (corium) sit smoldering will continue to release radiation into the ocean for decades to come. The health toll that this will take, especially on the children of Northern Japan is horrifying. Already a much higher than expected incidence of thyroid cancers have been reported in area youth. This is the first of the cancers to present and is the tip of the iceberg of health impacts on those in the area. The release of long lived radionuclides such as cesium-137 and uranium into the ecosystem presents dangers to people all around the world as these particles cycle through the biosphere. But the largest and most tragic impacts of Fukushima will be on people in Japan. The plumes from the explosions of March 2011 deposited the bulk of their fallout within a few hundred kilometers of the plants. Radiation from the regular releases of contaminated water into the ocean, and the passage of groundwater across the corium will continue to bring radioactive particles into the Pacific Ocean where they will work their way up the food chain much as the fallout deposited by atmospheric nuclear testing did in the Pacific during the 1940s and 1950s. Some of that radiation is reaching the West Coast of the U.S., and this will continue as long as the site hemorrhages contaminated water into the ocean, which will likely be for some decades. This disaster should not be discounted. But it should also be remembered that it is the people of Japan, and specifically the children of Japan who live in the areas where the fallout plumes deposited that face the direst of these consequences.

There is currently a great deal of awareness about the arrival of Fukushima radiation on the West Coast. There are many people who say they will not eat fish from the Pacific Ocean, or eat food from Japan. At the same time, there is no discussion about eating Salmon from the Columbia River, drinking wines from the Columbia Valley, or fruit from the orchards that fill the downwind area around Hanford. The amount of radiation in the Hanford area dwarfs the amount arriving on the West Coast of the United States on a scale that is mindboggling. What is arriving from Fukushima is the result of the meltdowns of three nuclear cores, and it is crossing an ocean. What is stored at Hanford and leeching into the Columbia is resultant from 2/3rds of the high level nuclear waste of the United States, and is from production that began decades before Fukushima was built. This is not just contamination that is arriving today, or this year, it has been saturating the groundwater and ecosystem of the Northwest for more than 70 years.

Furthermore, the impacts from Hanford are not only what may happen, but what has already happened. Hanford downwinders have suffered generations of cancers and other diseases across a wide area of Eastern Washington and beyond. There is a legacy of death and illness that spans generations downwind from Hanford, and the source of those diseases percolates away in the tanks and waste sites that sit along the Columbia River, spreading deeper into the surrounding ecosystem. The radiation from Fukushima may slowly seep across the vast Pacific, while at Hanford we have the threat of a radiological explosion or terrorist act that could release volumes more radiation than was released by Fukushima and deposited in Japan any day of any week, and spread radiation across the West Coast and mountain west.

By all means we should be vigilant and monitor the levels of Fukushima radiation that arrives on the West Coast of the United States, while remembering that the most profound victims of Fukushima are children living near the site. But we should turn our attention and concerns to the radioactive wound that seeps radiation into the ecosystem of the American and Canadian West every day and threatens it with a radiological disaster that would dwarf the worst that Fukushima has done even in Japan. Stand up for Hanford whistleblowers. Demand transparency on waste management practices and plans at Hanford. Stand up for the health of Hanford workers who are being exposed to dangerous vapors in their workplace. And demand support and compensation for the downwind families and workers whose health and wellbeing has been devastated by the most radioactive site in the United States.

Samurai Sword Wielding Man to Parents: 'I Am Gonna Chop You Into Pieces'
By Vince Lattanzio
Published 2 hours ago



A Philadelphia man threatened to chop up his parents with a samurai sword before getting into a confrontation with officers at his Juniata Park home, police said.

Ivan Encarnacion, 40, allegedly started arguing with his elderly mother and father in the kitchen of their home along the 4300 block of K Street around 11 a.m. Thursday. The argument escalated to Encarnacion grabbing a bat before heading into the basement to get the sword, according to the Philadelphia Police Department.

Encarnacion's 81-year-old mother told police that he charged at her and said "I am going to chop you into pieces." He allegedly grabbed his 78-year-old father by the neck and demanded cash. Police said the father gave him two $5 bills and Encarnacion threatened to chop up him as well before running outside.

Attorney information for Encarnacion was not immediately available.

The parents called police; officers arrived a short time later to find Encarnacion in front of the house with the sword in its sheath. When officers told him to drop the weapon, he instead unsheathed it and charged officers, police said.

An officer fired his Taser, hitting the man. But he was able to pull the prongs from his chest and run back into the house, police said.

The SWAT team was called in to negotiate with Encarnacion. After a short time, he surrendered to police. No one else was hurt.

Encarnacion is charged with three counts of aggravated assault, possessing an instrument of crime, terroristic threats, reckless endangerment and related offenses. Attorney information for Encarnacion was not immediately available.

'Now it's your hands that are tied,' rape victim tells attacker at sentencing



updated April 29, 2016 at 2:58 PM

His last victim in a nine-day string of robberies and sexual assaults that rattled the Carrollton neighborhood two years ago was carrying groceries into her house on Hickory Street when James Johnson asked her for directions.

After forcing his way into her home, he tied her wrists, "and then you raped me," the woman testified Thursday (April 28) before Johnson, 22, was sentenced to serve 50 years in prison. The woman flew in from Washington State to testify at Johnson's sentencing hearing.

She sat rigid, with her shoulders back, and looked straight ahead as she read what she wanted him to hear. Her voice broke early, then stayed steady until she left the stand.

Johnson was arrested April 9, 2014. Then-NOPD Superintendent Ronal Serpas said at the time, "We actually caught him in the act" of raping a woman. That was the woman from Washington.



Johnson pleaded guilty Thursday to charges related to the string of robberies of four women and sexual assaults of two of them. The crimes occurred in the first week-and-a-half of April 2014. Johnson's younger brother, Aaron Johnson, and his sister's boyfriend, Kevin Jones, who prosecutors say were Johnson's accomplices in some of the crimes, also face charges related to the crimes.

In two of the cases, investigators said Johnson got women he approached to lower their guard by acting lost and asking directions before taking them captive, In the other case, they said Johnson led two accomplices straight through a front door left ajar by a pair of female Tulane students. The attacks occurred in the 7800 block of Panola Street, the 2600 block of Cleveland Avenue and in the 7300 block of Hickory Street.

In all three cases, police said Johnson restrained his victims by tying their hands behind their backs while he robbed and, in two instances, sexually assaulted the women.

"You tried to take my power and control, and I am the one with the power and control," she said. "Now it is your hands that are tied."

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Police in Dallas arrested a man who allegedly showed his penis to a woman doing her laundry. They caught him in the parking lot of a convenience store near the intersection of Ross Avenue and Bennet Avenue Thursday night.

The victim told police the indecent exposure happened in February at the Xpress Laundry Lavanderia, located at 1406 Greenville Avenue. She said Rogelio Martinez, 49, approached her and asked for money in Spanish. But the victim didn’t have any money to give and backed away from Martinez. That’s when he exposed his penis and masturbated in front of her, according to the police report. The victim fled from the laundromat and called police.

On April 27, 2016, the victim identified Martinez in a photographic lineup and a warrant for Indecent Exposure was issued for his arrest.

The man accused of forcing his cheating girlfriend to walk naked down a Harlem street laughed and joked after his Manhattan court appearance Thursday.

Wearing a slick suit and a new pair of specs, Jason Melo, 24, was all smiles as he yakked on the phone in Spanish outside Manhattan court.

Both sides has just appeared for a status hearing in the case. Melo is next due in court June 13.

He is accused of choking and punching his victim with their newborn daughter nearby and then forcing her out into the cold street wearing a towel after he caught her sending naked pictures to other men.

Once she was shivering in the January cold, the cad allegedly ripped off her towel, sneering “You’re going to pay the price like a whore, right there by the trash. Pose with your trash.”

He has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child, coercion, and assault. Melo also has an open drug-felony case in Massachusetts, authorities said.

His ex-girlfriend has fled to Florida to get away from the fiend, prosecutors said Thursday.

Melo previously told a Post reporter, “She shouldn’t have done what she did” when asked whether he regretted beating the mother of his child.

Racist Statements Lead California Lawmakers To Reject ‘John Wayne Day’

Racist Statements Lead California Lawmakers To Reject ‘John Wayne Day’
April 29, 2016 6:57 AM



SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – What a California lawmaker intended as a benign resolution honoring a late, world-renowned movie icon exploded into an emotional debate over decades-old racist comments.

The state Assembly defeated the official ode to John Wayne Thursday after several legislators described statements he made about racial minorities and his support for the anti-communist House Un-American Activities Committee and John Birch Society.

Known as “Duke,” a nickname he picked up as a boy in Glendale, California, Wayne grew into the star of movies including “The Alamo,” ”The Green Berets” and “True Grit,” for which he won an Academy Award, while portraying the gruff, rugged cowboys and brave soldiers who were his stock in trade.

Republican State Assemblyman Matthew Harper of Huntington Beach sought to declare May 26, 2016, as John Wayne Day to mark the day the actor was born.

“He had disturbing views towards race,” objected Assemblyman Luis Alejo, D-Watsonville, leading off a 20-minute debate.

Alejo cited a 1971 interview with Playboy in which Wayne talked disparagingly about blacks.:cool:

“I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people,” he told the magazine.

Assemblyman Mike Gipson, D-Carson, who is black, said he found Wayne’s comments personally offensive.

Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, cited his comments defending white Europeans’ encroachment on American Indians who Wayne once said “were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.”

Homeless man paralyzed in shooting, suspect arrested
The shooting happened at a homeless camp

Updated: April 27, 2016, 7:55 pm



PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Police arrested a man in connection with an early morning shooting at a homeless camp in the West Buckman neighborhood last month.

Muhammad Bilal Rahman, 45, was originally arrested on April 3 and charged with third-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon.

A grand jury convened and later determined that enough probable cause existed to charge Rahman with one count each of first-degree assault, unlawful use of a weapon and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The shooting happened in the early morning hours of March 31 near the intersection of Southeast 11th and Southeast Pine.

The victim had been shot in the back, according to a probable cause affidavit filed by deputy district attorney Melissa A. Marrero. Because of the gunshot wound, the victim is “permanently paralyzed from the waist down and had to have his colon removed.”

Records show the victim and Rahman are known to each other.

California chaos: Rioters storm the streets to protest Trump

COSTA MESA, Calif. — Raucous crowds of protesters took to the streets late Thursday in California as Donald Trump brought his Republican presidential campaign to conservative Orange County after sweeping the Northeast GOP primaries.

Dozens of protesters were mostly peaceful as Trump gave his speech inside the Pacific Amphitheatre. After the event, however, the demonstration grew rowdy and spilled into the streets.

At least four people were arrested and one Trump supporter had his face bloodied in a scuffle as he tried to drive out of the arena. One man jumped on a police car, leaving its front and rear windows smashed and the top dented in, and other protesters sprayed graffiti on a police car and the venue’s marquee.

Dozens of cars — including those of Trump supporters trying to leave — were stuck in the street as several hundred demonstrators blocked the road, waved Mexican flags and posed for selfies.

Police in riot gear and on horseback pushed the crowd back and away from the venue. There were no major injuries and police did not use any force. The crowd began dispersing about three hours after the speech ended.

Earlier in the evening, a half-dozen anti-Trump protesters taunted those waiting to get into the venue. Trump supporters surrounded one man who waved a Mexican flag and shouted “Build that wall! Build that wall!” — a reference to Trump’s call to create a barrier between the United States and Mexico to stop illegal border crossings.

At one point, seven women wearing no shirts and Bernie Sanders stickers over their breasts entered the square outside the amphitheater. They said they were protesting Trump’s lack of engagement on issues of gender equality and women’s rights.

“I feel like he wants to make America great again, but certainly not for women, for the LBGTQ community or for the lower class,” said one of the women, Tiernan Hebron. “He has, like, done nothing to help with gender equality or women’s rights or reproductive rights or anything.”

Trump has drawn large crowds across the country as he has campaigned for the White House and some of his events have been marred by incidents both inside and outside these venues.

Earlier this week, a Trump rally in nearby Anaheim, California, turned contentious when his supporters and counter-protesters clashed, leaving several people struck by pepper spray. Trump was not present.

Trump has drawn large crowds to most of his campaign events, and Thursday was no exception. The Pacific Amphitheatre was filled to its capacity of about 18,000 and many hundreds more were turned away.

Ly Kou, 47, of Ontario, said she likes Trump because he has vowed to put the country first.

“It’s obvious that America loves Trump,” said Kou, who is from Laos, as she pointed at the waiting throng. “This thing about him being racist? Look around the crowd.”

Trump was traveling from the rally site to the state’s Republican convention in Burlington in the San Francisco Bay Area.

‘Tag team’ (Negro) serial rapists will serve 30-year prison terms for 3 rapes solved by DNA

'Tag team' serial rapists will serve 30-year prison terms for 3 rapes solved by testing rape kits



updated April 28, 2016 at 11:44 AM

CLEVELAND, Ohio – A duo that prosecutors referred to as "tag team" serial rapists agreed to serve 30 years each in prison after evidence from previously untested rape kits linked them to the unsolved sexual assaults of three women.

Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Steven Gall Wednesday sentenced Michael Perry and Thomas Nicholson to the lengthy prison terms that will be served, in part, while they finish serving time for rapes they were convicted of more than a decade ago.

Perry, 40, and Nicholson, 39, were charged in 2002 and later convicted of breaking into a home on East 90th Street where they raped two women and a 16-year-old girl at gunpoint. Both had a little less than a decade still to serve on those sentences.

But the pair had not been connected to three other rapes that also happened around the same time in 2001.
