Facebook used to profile and kill Kenyan 'gangsters'

A suspected death squad operating inside Kenya's police force is using Facebook to target and kill young men they believe to be gang members.
Community leaders explain how suspected criminals were profiled within various Facebook groups by "gangster hunters". "They profile them on Facebook, and put pictures of their dead bodies on Facebook." The posted photos, sometimes showing close-up shots of heads split open by bullets and eviscerated bodies, usually come with a warning that the same fate awaits other criminals.
The first unofficial police Facebook account appeared under the name Hessy wa Kayole [Hessy from Kayole]. "Hessy became the shadowy crime-hunter, the mystical lone ranger."

Spreading on social media, more Facebook accounts with names of gang hunters from other crime-ridden residential estates started to appear. In a single month between 10 and 12 police killings of suspected gangsters were published on a now closed Facebook group called Nairobi Crime Free.

Manitoba Hells Angels president Dale Jason Sweeney is serving a 10-year sentence at Stony Mountain for his role in a drug trafficking ring. He alleges Corrections Canada is trying to interfere with his parole chances. His lawyer says he is up for parole again in June.

Search for Dutch Schultz lost Treasure

Dutch Schultz (Arthur Flegenheimer; Aug 6, 1902 – Oct 24, 1935) was a New York City gangster of the 1920s and 1930s who made his fortune in activities such as bootlegging, loan sharking, the numbers racket, and murder. Schultz became a powerful figure in the New York crime world. Along with other rackets, Schultz began extorting New York restaurant owners and workers. Gangsters who skimmed the take didn't last long.

"Dutch Schultz was ugly; he had been drinking and suddenly he had his gun out. Schultz wore his pistol under his vest, tucked inside his pants, right against his belly. One jerk at his vest and he had it in his hand. All in the same quick motion he swung it up, stuck it in Jules Martin's mouth and pulled the trigger. It was as simple and undramatic as that—just one quick motion of the hand. Dutch Schultz did that murder just as casually as if he were picking his teeth.”
As Martin contorted on the floor, Schultz apologized to Davis for killing someone in front of him.

When Davis later read a newspaper story about Martin's murder, he found out that the body was found with a dozen stab wounds to the chest. When Davis asked Schultz about this, the boss dead-panned, "I cut his heart out."
Schultz was said to have buried $7m in cash, jewels, gold and other valuables in a safe in a remote section of upstate New York.

The owners of the Lodge at Harrisburg Lake were surprised to hear from the producer of a television show.
The TV crew wanted to come to the western edge of Stony Creek because a researcher had concluded Dutch Schultz may have buried his loot near the property.
Schultz was known to frequent the area in the 1930s. He also was integrally involved in gambling in Saratoga Springs, and had an aunt who lived nearby. Schultz also hid out from the FBI and IRS on Tenant Mountain just to the south in Saratoga County.

Kahnawake men on trial for organized crime from tobacco smuggling bust


Derek White and Hunter Montour.
A jury will begin deliberations next week in the trial of two Mohawk men from Kahnawake, Que., facing charges in connection with the Sûreté du Québec's largest ever operation targeting a contraband tobacco ring. Sixty people were arrested on March 30, 2016 in connection with Operation Mygale, an investigation into the smuggling of tobacco.
Derek White has pleaded not guilty to three counts of fraud, three counts of conspiracy to commit fraud and profiting from organized crime, while Hunter Montour has pleaded not guilty to aiding organized crime. The Crown argued White was the head of his own criminal organization that smuggled tobacco into Quebec without paying federal excise duties or Quebec taxes, and Montour was a member of that criminal organization.

Pat Musitano changed Hamilton's underworld

In July 1997, Niagara Falls mobster Carmen Barillaro — lieutenant to Hamilton kingpin Johnny 'Pops' Papalia — was murdered in the doorway of his home. The 9mm used to kill Barillaro was fired by Kenneth Murdock, a hitman hired by a rival mob family. Three months earlier Murdock shot and killed Papalia in Hamilton, and the killings effectively wiped out the leadership of the Papalia crime family. Murdock was acting on orders from the Musitano crime family.

The murders did more than cripple a top crime family. They unwittingly opened the door for the Hells Angels.
Pat Musitano and his brother Angelo Musitano pleaded guilty in 1998 for ordering the hit on Barillaro and were sentenced to 10 years in prison. They were both released in 2006. Angelo was shot and killed in 2017 in Waterdown. Six months after Murdock was sentenced, the Sherbrooke chapter arrived in Niagara Falls for a "biker summit." A critical meeting between Hells Angel Walter 'Nugget' Stadnick and Gerald 'Skinny' Ward of Welland occurred. The bikers wanted Ward to become the leader of a new Hells Angels chapter in Niagara. The Outlaws were a shadow of their former glory and with Barillaro gone there was no effective opposition left.
Walter Stadnick
By 2006 the Hells Angels were the undisputed masters.In December 1999 nearly every Ontario Outlaw biker patched over to become Hells Angels. The Niagara chapter led by Ward was based out of a fortified clubhouse on Darby Road in Welland.

The Hells Angels were betrayed by one of their own. Oshawa biker Stephen Gault became a police informant. It was a blow the club has yet to recover from.
Gault wore a wire and recorded Ward bragging about his operation.

Gangsters make record books

The murder trial of two gangsters known for their spectacular prison escape by helicopter has gone down in the record books.

Since April 6, the 12 jurors in charge of judging Denis Lefebvre and Yves Denis for two murders and an involuntary manslaughter debated behind closed doors for an 18th consecutive day without being able to agree on verdicts. The jury has passed the mark for the longest deliberations of a criminal trial, both in Quebec and Canada.

Serge Pomerleau
The men are accused in the manslaughter of Kevin Walter, and the murders of Johnny Coutu and Benoit Denis, who were killed in Rouyn-Noranda, Laval and Montreal respectively.

The duo was said to be at the head of a network linked to the Hells Angels which trafficked 650 kilos of cocaine in Abitibi between 2007 and 2010. On June 7, 2014, the accused and the boss of their network, Serge Pomerleau, managed to escape from the Orsainville prison in Quebec City by boarding a helicopter to pick them up in an outdoor courtyard.
The fugitives were captured on June 22, 2014.
