Major Mexico/US tunnel busted

A haul of drugs being smuggled from Mexico to California was seized from a cross-border tunnel equipped with ventilation, lighting and an underground rail system. The tunnel connected warehouses in Tijuana and San Diego, extending about 610 metres. The raid netted 590 kg of cocaine, 39 kg of methamphetamine, 7.7 kg of heroin, 1 kg of fentanyl and 1,360 kg of pot.

No arrests were made. The tunnel had a rail-cart system, forced air ventilation, high voltage electrical cables and panels, an elevator at the tunnel entrance, and a drainage system.
The average depth of the tunnel was 31 feet. The length of more than 14 football fields surprised authorities. It went under several warehouses in San Diego and was beside a section of Trump's wall. The discovery came a little over two months after a 4,309-foot-long tunnel was found in the same area.

Confessions of a Mafia Hitman - Richard 'The Iceman' Kuklinsky

Richard Leonard Kuklinski (April 11, 1935 – March 5, 2006) was an American hitman and serial killer. He was convicted of murdering six people, but confessed to far more. He was associated with the DeCavalcante crime family of Newark, and the Five Families of New York. He was given the nickname 'The Iceman' for his method of freezing a victim to mask the time of death. Fellow mobsters called him 'the one-man army' or 'the devil himself'.

Former undercover operative Dominick Polifrone remembers the feeling that he got when he looked into the face of Kuklinski. He said it felt like staring into the eyes of the devil. Murder for Kuklinsky became sport he enjoyed immensely.
"This guy is just doing stuff because he likes it. There is nothing that's driving him to this. He just likes killing people."Kuklinski recalled in an interview:
"By now you know what I liked most was the hunt, the challenge of what the thing was. The killing for me was secondary. I got no rise as such out of it ... for the most part. But the figuring it out, the challenge—the stalking and doing it right—that excited me a lot. The greater the odds against me, the more juice I got out of it."

A renowned forensic psychiatrist said Kuklinski was a bipolar psychopath with paranoid personality disorder.
Kuklinski used guns, knives, explosives, tire irons, fire, poison, asphyxiation, and even beatings "just for the exercise". He favored cyanide, since it killed quickly, wasn't blood-messy and was hard to detect. He fed living human beings to cave rats in Pennsylvania and recorded footage in order to collect torture contracts and for disposal. Upon viewing one of the tapes, Mob Boss Roy DeMeo reportedly could not finish watching and said Kuklinski 'had no soul'. Kuklinski said the rats disposed of a body in about 2 days, including the bones, leaving no trace.
DeMeo would later became one of his victims. Kuklinski was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1988 for 5 murders, with an additional 30 years added on for murdering a mob-corrupted police officer. He died in prison at age 70 on March 5, 2006.

U.S. coronavirus deaths could reach 200,000 - Dr. Anthony Fauci

U.S. deaths from coronavirus could reach 200k with millions of cases, Dr. Anthony Fauci said. New York, New Orleans and other major cities have pleaded for more medical supplies. Deaths on Saturday more than doubled from the level two days prior. The US now has more than 145k cases of COVID-19. New Orleans will run out of ventilators April 4 and officials don't know if they will receive any from the stockpile.
Trump might finally be 'getting it' as Americans are now being called on for another 30 days of severe economic and social disruption, as schools and businesses are closed. This is a reversal in Trump's recent decree. One in 3 Americans remain under state or local government orders to stay at home.

Gangsters turn to Trump, Coronavarus to get out of Jail

Paul Schiro, 82, feels the “the epidemic has accelerated the urgency and necessity” of his request. The mobster has been in custody since 2002. He was convicted as part of the Family Secrets prosecution, that decimated the Chicago mob. Schiro’s attorney pointed to changes in the law created by the First Step Act, which was signed by Trump in 2018.

Schiro was sentenced in 2009 to 20 years in prison when he was 71. He is not due to be released until April 2024. One of Schiro’s co-defendants, Joey “the Clown” Lombardo, died in jail last fall at the age of 90. Another mob hit man, Anthony Calabrese, was shot down for clemency by Trump in 2018.

Recidivist ponzi scammer wants out of jail to tend elderly mother

Wayne R. Ogden, 55 cheated hundreds of investors of an estimated $18.6m in three Ponzi schemes. He wants release early due to “compassionate, extraordinary circumstances.” Ogden’s 81-year-old ailing mother has no one else to care for her he says.

The U.S. Bureau of Prisons denied Ogden’s early release request, saying he didn't meet agency criteria. Ogden is turning to Trump's First Step Act to get outta the can.

“The public at least will get a 10-year break from a remorseless, conscienceless serial thief.” Ogden has been ordered to pay $18.6 million in restitution.

Mexican meth mule pulls 8 years

Armando Esparza-Ochoa, 31, was busted on Sept. 1, 2018, after border surveillance detected him crossing the border west of the Osoyoos port of entry. Cops found Ochoa hiding in bushes about two kilometres west of his entry point. A backpack was found nearby containing 12.8 kg of meth.

Esparza-Ochoa was living in the U.S. picking fruit and was offered $2,500 for the drug run. Ochoa was seeking asylum in Canada, claiming he fears retribution. Prosecutors called it ironic Ochoa would be using the very offence he committed to apply for asylum in Canada. ".. you are by no means innocent." the judge told Ochoa through an interpreter. He sentenced Ochoa to eight years. He has been in custody since his arrest so he has about six years left to serve.

The Mexican Mafia

The Mexican Mafia, also known as La Eme (Spanish for "the M"), is a highly organized Mexican American criminal organization in the United States. Despite its name, the Mexican Mafia did not originate in Mexico and is entirely a U.S. criminal organization.

Officials estimate that there are currently around 300 official members of the Mexican Mafia with around 1,000 associates

Black Hand of Death
Members are expected to engage in tests of their loyalty to La eMe, which often includes murder. The penalty for refusing orders or failing to complete an assigned task is often death. Members may also be punished or murdered if they commit any of four major infractions. These include becoming an informant, acts of homosexuality, acts of cowardice, and showing disrespect against fellow gang members.

A member of the Mexican Mafia may not be murdered without prior approval by a vote of three members. The murder of non-members requires no formal approval. La eMe is involved in a large variety of criminal activities both inside and outside the prison system.
La eMe has a blood in, blood out credo: Murder or drawing of blood is a prerequisite for membership and anyone trying to get out will be killed. The Mexican Mafia is the controlling organization for almost every Hispanic gang in Southern California. Members of almost all Hispanic gangs in Southern California are obliged under the threat of death to carry out any and all orders from Mexican Mafia members.

Gangsters Disciples boss Larry Hoover wants out Florence AdMax

Kanye West visited the White House in 2018 and solicited Trump to support legislation allowing inmates convicted of drug crimes to seek reductions of their prison sentences. On West's list was notorious Chicago gangster Larry Hoover. A few months later Trump signed the First Step Act, allowing gangsters to seek shorter prison terms. Two of Hoover’s former lieutenants have been freed. Now Hoover says it's his turn. Hoover, 69, co-founded the gang in the late 1960s. He was sent to state prison in 1973 with a 200-year sentence for murder. It was found Hoover was running his drug network from behind State prison bars.
Sentenced in 1997 to life in federal prison, he’s held in the super-max prison in Florence, Colorado. Hoover’s lawyers say the First Step Act makes him eligible for a new sentencing hearing.

A former assistant U.S. attorney who helped prosecute Hoover says it's a “miscarriage of justice” to allow him to benefit from it. If successful and able to escape Florence AdMax, Hoover will be required to serve his remaining state sentence.
Hoover's state sentence runs to 2064.
