B.C. appeal court sets aside part of forfeiture ruling against Hells Angels

Judge Davies sided with the Hells Angels over three of their clubhouses in Vancouver, Kelowna and Nanaimo. He decided they ought not be forfeited to the B.C. government as instruments of criminal activity. That decision was appealed in July. The attorney-general is appealing the finding that the forfeiture act is unconstitutional, while the director of civil forfeiture appealed the decision against forfeiting the clubhouses.

Davis made the curious finding that no evidence proved the HAMC was a global operation. That contradicts a recent Netherland court that found evidence of thousands of HA linked crimes. It also proves the judge doesn't read this blog as HA gangsterism is half my material on any given day.
“The director has not proven that the Hells Angels is a worldwide criminal organization,” Davies said. “Although the evidence adduced does establish that many members of the Hells Angels in British Columbia and Ontario have committed serious criminal offences, there is a paucity of admissible evidence concerning such criminals offending in other jurisdictions.”

Other profanity-laced posts spoke of hanging former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “for war crimes against humanity.” A photograph of a noose carried a caption calling for hanging Obama, “both Clinton’s, Democrats, Liberals, Muslims” and others including “Ihan Omar” and “A.O.C.,” references to Democratic U.S. Representatives Ilhan Omar and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez.

Eight members or associates of a paramilitary group called the Wolverine Watchmen are charged with counts including providing material support for terrorist acts. Some are accused of taking part in the scheme against Whitmer.

Aaron Shamo = Life

A suburban millennial convicted of becoming an online drug kingpin was sent to prison for life. Shamo flooded the US with at least a half-million fake oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl.29-year-old Mormon college dropout Aaron Shamo made himself a millionaire by building a fentanyl trafficking empire in his spare time with not much more than his computer. Shamo called himself a “white-collar drug dealer” who was helping people get the drugs they needed.

His attorney called him a fool and his primary defence was that he isn’t smart enough to be a drug kingpin.
On the stand at trial Shamo rambled extensively about how customers wrote thank you notes because their doctors refused to prescribe more painkillers. He said it was “a win-win situation” — he got rich and his customers got drugs.

Ruslan Klyuev died in his bedroom with an envelope from Shamo at his feet. Shamo was charged in connection to that overdose death, but when investigators scoured his list of customers they said dozens more were also dead. His was the only death with which Shamo would be charged.
The DEA estimates a kilogram of fentanyl purchased for a few thousand dollars from China could make a dealer more than $1 million. “Any moron can basically become a major drug kingpin by dealing in fentanyl.”

Shamo's business boomed. Shamo hired a personal assistant. He stuffed a duffel bag with $429,000 cash and asked his parents to hold it. He bragged to friends about gambling in Las Vegas. He shopped for real estate in Puerto Rico; took photos sipping champagne on a cruise ship; bought designer clothes, a boat and expensive cars.
Shamo penned a note: “I am Shamo. I am awesome. My friends love me. I created an empire.”
On Nov. 22, 2016 Federal agents raided Shamo’s home. Agents found more than $1.2m in cash. They seized another $800k from one of his associates. Shamo’s other ex-partners and packagers pleaded guilty and agreed to testify.

Aaron Shamo was convicted of 12 counts including the so-called “kingpin charge” that is usually reserved for drug lords like El Chapo and carries a mandatory life sentence. The jury deadlocked on the death of Ruslan Klyuev.

Sweden - ‘gangster’s paradise’

Operation Hoarfrost was to tackle the rise in gang crime in Sweden. A year later and the situation is out of control.
Swedish cops are pleading for resources as migrant gangs terrorize the country. Last year Sweden's bomb squad was called out more than 250 times, a level unseen anywhere in Europe. The situation escalated last November when a 15-year-old was killed in a blast.
"These criminal clans have a different culture that makes them difficult to tackle with normal police methods." In Aug, 20 gangsters were busted when cops responded to an incident in Gothenburg that saw a group close roads as they looked for rivals. "Two years ago, if people linked immigration to crime, they would be accused of being racist. But the paradigm is shifting." At least 40 migrant gangs had been identified and are operating in Sweden.
The Ali Khan group has literally hundreds of complaints. The Ali Khan group originated from Palestine and Turkey, but spread to northern Europe. Cops say the latest wave is Syrian gangsters who take advantage of the country's generous welfare system.

'The Concert' by Vermeer is the most valuable painting at over $200m.
$500m of art, including Rembrandt’s 'Storm on the Sea of Galilee' was stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in March 1990. The Gardner heist was carried out by two men dressed in police uniforms who overpowered a security guard who had buzzed them in.

The museum initially offered a reward of $5m. In 2017 this was doubled to $10m with an expiration date set to the end of the year.
