Video of Jon Bacon Murder - blast from past

The police video was played in B.C. Supreme Court at the trial of three men charged with killing gangster Jonathan Bacon on Aug. 14, 2011. Bacon was in the front passenger seat of the Porsche when the shooting began. He died minutes later on the ground beside the car.
Jason McBride was sentenced to life in prison, with eligibility to apply for parole at 18 years. Juhjhar Khun-Khun and Michael Jones were sentenced to 18 years apiece for conspiring to murder Bacon, Larry Amero and James Riach.

Former top RCMP denies all: Cameron Ortis - Update

Cameron Ortis
It has been four years of silence since the arrest of Cameron Ortis sent shockwaves through cop, intelligence and the international spy community. His arrest meant the RCMP wasn't vetting civilian employees before dishing out top-secret clearance. Ortis, 51, faces 6 charges when his trial begins Tuesday. Four are under the Security of Information Act for “intentionally and without authority” sharing “special operational information” to four unnamed individuals in 2015. Two charges are under the Criminal Code for breach of trust and misusing a computer. Ortis improperly sat at the apex of Canada’s criminal national security intelligence apparatus. Most details about the allegations against Ortis are either under a publication ban or are still unknown.
Senior RCMP officials thought they were brilliant by handing over their national intelligence program to a civilian. RCMP brass made Cameron Ortis director-general of the National Intelligence Coordination Centre and gave him a free hand.

Four years later and Ortis is awaiting trial for security breaches; three of his former staff are suing the government for harassment; and an independent review has cited senior police officials responsible for the NICC for their "clear failure."

Top RCMP entrusted Ortis with critical intelligence at the helm of the NICC, and kept him in that position despite repeated and numerous complaints about his conduct from staff. Former RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson says he had a “friendly” relationship with Cameron Ortis, an alleged mole accused of selling top secret intelligence. “I never received any complaints about Cam and I was never advised of any complaints about Cam."
Paulson denies he protected Ortis, which is strange because Ortis's rapid rise would have been impossible without Paulson. The former head of RCMP’s special intelligence unit was reported for his “strange and controlling” behavior in early 2017.

Ortis was arrested in Sept 2019 after the FBI revealed he was a spy. Paulson initially declined to comment. An independent review concluded all levels of senior RCMP management failed to deal with the many complaints against Ortis. Harassment was a theme during Paulson’s tenure at the RCMP. He issued an apology in Oct 2016 in a legal settlement. Hundreds of millions was blown in legal fees.

Moving day for NY Hells Angels - revisted

After 50 years at 77 E. 3rd St., the club sold the building and moved to the Bronx in 2019. The 6 story building received a reno and now houses 22 apartments. No bikers live there, apartments start at $3,599 per month.
The HA have vacated their East Village clubhouse. The bikers are leaving behind a plaque commemorating “Big Vinnie” Girolamo, along with his motto, “When in doubt, knock ’em out.” The biker died in 1979 before he could stand trial for throwing Mary Ann Campbell off the roof of the clubhouse to her death. He believed she was an informant.
After 50 years at 77 E. Third St. where are they going? “We don’t know” said one. Criminal defense lawyer Ron Kuby has represented the club for years. He dismissed claims that the Hells Angels are into rackets and operate like organized crime. “Think of it as a church,” he said of the group. “Members of clergy who violate the law don’t make the church a criminal enterprise.”

The New York City Hells Angels are actually incorporated in New York State as the Church of the Angels, a nonprofit religious organization. That name was used when club members purchased the property in 1977, for a reported $1,900.
The deed was transferred from one of Alexander’s heirs to the HA in 2018, paving the way for a sale.A contract was drawn up between the HA and a corporation listed as 77 East 3rd Street LLC. That firm is linked to Nathan Blatter of Whitestone Realty Group, a commercial real estate investor. No sale price was included. The Angels bought the building for a song back in the 1970s. In 1983, then-president Sandy Alexander changed the building’s deed to name himself and his family as rent-free tenants, and stipulated that his heirs “shall receive half of the proceeds” from any sale. Alexander went to jail for selling cocaine, got kicked out of the club in the ‘90s, and died in 2007.
There has been much drama there.

A verbal war broke out over a bench installed outside of the building. There was a 2016 shooting and a 2018 beating of a deliveryman, both over the parking spaces outside.

Russia shoots down own SU-35

Russia lost another Su-35 Flanker-E multirole fighter Friday, its 4th. This time a Russian air defense system did Ukraine's work for it. The Su-35 Flanker-E is one of Russia’s most advanced fighter jets with a unit cost around $40m.

Trump jokes he has been indicted more than Al Capone.

Trump has been indicted 4 times and faces 91 criminal charges. Capone faced many charges in his criminal career. He was notoriously successful at dodging prosecution until a tax evasion conviction in 1931 led to a sentence of 11 years in federal prison. Capone died in 1947 in Florida.
The surviving granddaughters of Alphonse Capone auctioned off a slew of the mob boss’s gear. A Colt .45 that was passed down through generations of Capone’s descendants was the star and made $860k. The next-highest seller was a .38-caliber Colt pistol, which went for $200k. A platinum and diamond pocketwatch sold for $190k, and a pocketknife of the same material sporting the monogram AL in diamond studs sold for $75k.

174 items brought $3m in 2021.

2 busted after cocaine seizure off Cork coast

Jamie Hardbron and Vitaliy Lapa.
Two appeared in court after the largest seizure of cocaine off the southern coast of Ireland in history. Garda├ş say estimated street value is €150m. Cocaine was taken from the bulk cargo ship MV Matthew off County Cork.

Vick Mander - Trust Capital - update IV

Ferraris worth $1m stolen in Ontario were seized by police near Edmonton and charged are our boys. Vicky (Vick) Mander, 35, is charged with two counts of fraudulent concealment and two counts of uttering a forged document. He was bailed out. Sheldon Gaspard Poirier, 31, is charged with four counts of possession of property obtained by crime, illegal possession of government documents, possessing a weapon contrary to an order, failing to comply with release conditions and fraudulent concealment. He remained caged. Boys appeared in court on Sept. 28 at the courthouse in Leduc.
W5 says the RCMP hasn't questioned money-man Vick Mander, and passengers have not been questioned either. This after the flight crew was detained for 8 months. Former RCMP investigator Gary Clement says he can’t understand why the RCMP is silent about a conspiracy to smuggle hundreds of kilos of cocaine into Canada. "This is not a complicated case." Crimes are conspiracy to import cocaine, money laundering, and proceeds of crime.
The corruption unveiled at the Punta Cana Airport has also been ignored by authorities.

Sheldon Gaspard Poirier
Pivot Airlines, a charter company based in Toronto, received an email sent by John Strudwick, the CFO of purported real estate investment firm Trust Capital. It was on the second charter trip in April when the Pivot Airlines crew discovered more than 210 kg of cocaine in the avionics bay of their plane. Multiple wire transfers showed that about $150k had been sent to Pivot through a numbered company in B.C. A corporate records search revealed that the director of that company was Edmonton resident Vick Mander.

In Feb 2019 Vick Mander spoke of his cab driver father, Balwinder Mander, 54, who was assaulted. “That’s when the guy kind of woke up and said, ‘Why’d you bring me here?’ and started wailing shots”
Passenger Sheldon Gaspard Poirier was billed as an employee. He was linked to Mander and had a possession for the purpose of trafficking conviction in Alberta in 2020. W5 background checks on the remaining passengers from both flights chartered by Trust Capital found others with checkered pasts. Four of the 11 passengers from both flights had a history of being busted dealing drugs.
Pivot Airlines handed over all the information it had on Trust Capital to the RCMP. No charges have emerged thus far.
On the day that the flight was supposed to leave Punta Cana for Toronto, a manager at Signature Flight Support in Toronto contacted the Pivot Airlines’ CEO, asking him about the flight, saying the aircraft needed to go in for service the next day. Pivot Airlines found this strange. W5 video Here.

Wolfpack gangster Omid Mashinchi busted again

Omid Mashinchi has been hit with a lawsuit by the B.C. government seeking forfeiture of more than $190k in cash, high-end cars and jewelry. On March 16, VPD raided Mashinchi’s condo at 1011 West Cordova St. and found $191,010. They seized six Rolex watches and one Patek Philippe watch, two necklaces, three bracelets, keys to a Mercedes, a money-counting machine, score sheets for drug trafficking, three cellphones, a cryptocurrency wallet, and GPS tracking devices. In the storage locker for his unit, cops found fentanyl, more than 78 kg of MDMA, and more than 15 kg of meth. Also in the locker were four handguns.

Omid Mashinchi and fugitive Mo Rahimi
Omid Mashinchi last appeared here after being busted for money laundering in the U.S. Mashinchi has associated with B.C. gangsters for years, including leasing condos that were used both as stash houses and as residences. Mashinchi's leasing operations continued during his incarceration. Despite complaints that he was leasing 3rd party properties in buildings that didn't allow rentals, websites continued to send customers to Mashinchi's 'Residence Club'. It operated out of a townhouse at 867 Richards, three doors from a similar unit that Mashinchi bought for $1.5m.

B.C.’s anti-gang cops have come across Mashinchi and his properties often. For years Omid Mashinchi was associated with the Wolf Pack. He was a realtor with the Royalty Group from April 2009 until June 2016, when he gave up his licence. Despite not having a licence, Mashinchi continued to lease condos through the 'Residence Club'.
