You can't judge a book by, errr

William Bottoms Jr., 30, of Greenwell Springs, was found guilty of second-degree murder in the June 2017 shooting deaths of Dedrick Dewayne Williams, 23, and Mohamed Sead Hussain, 29. The paranoid Bottoms was on meth and without provocation shot the two men as they sat in the back seat of a car.
His two life terms run consecutively.
Bottoms' twin brother, Lawrence Bottoms, was fatally shot in Mississippi after he pulled a gun on sheriff's deputies. Lawrence Bottoms was convicted in 2017 of the stabbing death of a teenager with a screwdriver.

Giuliani threatens afterlife for prosecutors

“I committed no crime, and if you think I committed a crime, you’re probably really stupid, because you don’t know who I am." “I am more than willing to go to jail if they want to put me in jail. And if they do, they’re going to suffer the consequences in heaven. I’m not, I didn’t do anything wrong.”

Gain of Function Experiments - redux

The Chinese call questions "politicized misinformation." Did the COVID-19 pandemic start with a Chinese lab leak? Research referred to as “gain of function" is common at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and it was performed on pathogen bat viruses at a lab security level on par with a dentist's office. Adament Chinese denials that a leak occured are falling flat when investigations are not being allowed by the regime.
Experimenting with pathogens to force them to mutate to become more lethal or transmissible to humans is an ethical issue. Nobody can possibly say if the benefits outweigh the risks. Safety lapses involving avian flu, smallpox, and anthrax point out that leaks are not uncommon. In 2014 the U.S. put a moratorium on funding gain-of-function research involving influenza, MERS, and SARS. The moratorium was lifted in 2017.
The Wuhan Institute of Virology has long been tied to the Chinese military. China’s unwillingness to release information has heightened suspicions that COVID-19 was engineered as a bio-weapon, and started a global pandemic with a leak from the Wuhan lab.

The couple before Bonnie and Clyde

Richard and Margaret Whittemore ran a jewel robbery gang, and their crimes in 1925 and 1926 were front page news across the US. Before Bonnie and Clyde, the Whittemores established the image of the bad boy gangster and his moll. Richard Whittemore, "The Candy Kid," lured flapper Margaret, aka "Tiger Girl," into the high life of crime. Richard Whittemore was a career criminal who escaped from the Maryland state penitentiary on February 20, 1925, after killing a prison guard.
On October 29, 1925, six gunmen hijacked an armored truck en route to the U.S. Federal Reserve. Stopping the truck they killed the driver and the guard and then fled with $93,000 in cash. The robbery made headlines across the country. The gang was eventually caught. Whittemore was convicted on May 21, condemned to death on June 10, and hanged on August 13, 1926. Margaret Whittemore was arrested but never convicted for her roles in any of the crimes. She died at age 90 on April 13, 1993.

Narco banners announce truce

Feuding factions of the Gulf Cartel have announced they have reached a truce and want the northern border state of Tamaulipas to live in peace. The state has a 370 km border with Texas, making it a lucrative location for smuggling drugs and migrants. The Grupo Scorpion, Grupo Metros and Tampico Grupo Rojo factions made the announcement on narco-banners. The groups have been fighting each other over the past decade in a Coyote turf war. It has fueled high levels of violence in Tamaulipas.
Edgar Valladares, a high-ranking leader within the Gulf Cartel, and his bodyguard, Juan Miguel Lizardi, were found dead in Reynosa. They had been tortured and shot. Valladares ordered an indiscriminate killing in which 25 innocent bystanders including taxi drivers, construction workers, children and a nursing student were killed. Cops have arrested a dozen and killed 4 of the men responsible.

Search for Dutch Schultz lost Treasure

The story of Dutch Schultz's lost Treasure has inspired a movie, books, documentaries, a PBS special, and many treasure hunters looking for loot in the Catskills. People still flock to Phoenicia, looking for lost treasure.
Schultz had ties to the area. He was involved in gambling in Saratoga Springs, and had an aunt who lived nearby. Schultz also hid out from the FBI and IRS just to the south in Saratoga County.
Dutch Schultz (Arthur Flegenheimer) was a New York gangster of the 1930s who made his fortune in bootlegging, loan sharking, the numbers racket, and murder. Schultz became a powerful figure with a reputation for ruthlessness.
Schultz is said to have buried $7m in cash, jewels, and gold in a safe in upstate New York

Farm Bank - Cyber Ponzi Scam

Launched in 2016, Farm Bank was billed as a way for players to “win as they play, and have fun as they win.”
Farm Bank was a smart phone based pyramid scam that returned over $80m to the app’s founder, 26-year-old Mehmet Aydın. Farm Bank was a shameless pyramid scam.
In less than two years of running the scheme the company collected around $250m. Aydın made off with $80.5m, which he took with him to South America. There, reports captured his pechant for driving exotic cars and living in extreme luxury. On July 1, 2021, Aydın turned himself in to the Turkish consulate in São Paolo, Brazil.

250 pesos for shot at El Chapo hideout

The Mexican government is raffling off the site of one of Guzmán’s dramatic escapes from cops. El Chapo was naked and asleep with his mistress, Lucero Sanchez, when Mexican marines battered down the front door in 2014. The two ran to the bathroom, and plugged in a cord: causing hydraulics to lift up the bathtub. Concealed below was a web of secret tunnels leading to freedom.
The two-bedroom house in northwestern Mexico is among seven other houses, seven apartments, five lots, a ranch, and a 20-seat viewing box at the Azteca Stadium in Mexico City. They are prizes — confiscated assets from various criminals. Lottery tickets cost 250 pesos ($12.50). Winning tickets will be drawn on Sept. 15.

Baggaley brothers go away for a long time

Oz Olympic kayaker Nathan Baggaley and his younger brother have been jailed for more than 20 years each for trying to smuggle up to $200m worth of cocaine into Australia. Dru Baggaley, 39, and another man picked up 650kg of the drug from a foreign ship. They began throwing the haul overboard on their way back to the mainland when they spotted a Navy patrol boat.

The brothers had extensive criminal histories and both had served time in prison over serious drug-related offences.
Dru Baggaley had spent more than 11 of the past 14 years in jail. He was sentenced to 28 years in jail, with a non-parole period of 16 years, while Nathan Baggaley was handed a 25-year sentence and will be eligible for parole after serving 12 years.

Wuhan Horseshoe Bats linked to COVID

In 2010 American virologist Ralph Baric approached Zhengli Shi. Baric is an expert in coronaviruses and Shi, at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, had been finding them in bat caves.

Chinese work was carried out at biosafety level 2 (BSL-2), a far lower tier than Baric’s BSL-3+.
Baric developed a way to bring a virus to life from its genetic code, and he could mix and match parts of multiple viruses. He wanted to take the “spike” gene and move it into a genetic copy of the SARS virus. The spike molecule lets a coronavirus open a cell and get inside. The resulting chimera would attach to human cells. The chimera (a chimera genome contains genetic material from two strains of virus.) exhibited “robust replication” in humans.

If it had been transmitted like SARS-CoV-2, “we would have had a pandemic with a 10% mortality rate,” Baric said.
Chinese work created enhanced SARS-like viruses, whose risk to humans was unknown. In 2002–03 SARS broke out in China, infecting 8,000. That disease didn’t spread from one person to another until after severe symptoms began to appear, making it easier to corral. 774 people died.

Zhengli Shi the 'Bat Lady'
People should not be looking at bat viruses in BSL-2 labs. Zhengli Shi said she followed Chinese rules. Since the pandemic began, Baric said little about the origins of the virus. In May 2020 he said “speculation about accidental laboratory escape will likely persist, given the large collections of bat virome samples stored in labs in the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the facility’s proximity to the early outbreak, and the operating procedures at the facility.”
SARS-CoV-2's closest known relative at 96% is RATG13, which came from a horseshoe bat.
Ebola cannot spread except through body fluids. If Chinese gain of function experiments change that the world is a far more dangerous place.

Miss BumBum 2018 Flavia Tamayo pulls 8 years

Flavia Tamayo has been jailed for eight years. She was found guilty of dealing drugs and prostitution.
Tamayo, once featured on the cover of Playboy Portugal, was arrested for leading a group of women who provided cocaine, hashish and sex to johns who would pay between $100-$200.
Cops in Brazil said Tamayo was known as the “Powder Queen” and the “Powder Panther.”
When busted by cops, she screamed and took her clothes off. Playboy Portugal billed her a “true Brazilian beauty."

After winning Miss BumBum Brazil in 2018, she was accused of ass augmentation. She said her bum was natural.

Ebola Gain of Function no joke - Update

The Chinese have dismissed reports that three researchers had fallen sick with coronavirus-like symptoms shortly before the first cases emerged in Wuhan. They also dismiss questions over China’s lack of transparency with data and refusal for a "lab audit".China has rejected a request from the World Health Organization (WHO) that they return to sites in China to investigate the origins of COVID-19. Experts made their first visit to Wuhan in mid-January, more than a year after the first cases.
Ebola virus disease (EVD) is a severe, often fatal illness. The average EVD fatality rate is 50%. Fatality rates have varied from 25% to 90% in past outbreaks. The 2014–2016 outbreak in West Africa was the largest Ebola outbreak since the virus was discovered in 1976. Fruit bats are the host.
'Gain of Function' experiments force viruses to mutate to become more deadly. Extreme Chinese interest in GOF with one of the deadliest viruses on earth ought to be ringing alarm bells. Who are making the ethical decisions for humanity on bioweapons, the PLA? If so the next pandemic might be an Ebola variant which would make COVID look like a pussycat.

People remain infectious as long as their blood contains the Ebola virus.

12th anniversary of Brandon Vito Hughes hit - "I will be getting a restraining order"

12 years ago today Brandon Vito Hughes was whacked in North Vancouver in a well planned hit. Time and distance can make a difference in murder investigations. Those with information ought to make room for their souls and think of closure for Brandon Vito Hughes' family. IHIT File#2009-6580
Those who benefited most from Brandon Vito Hughes' death are the multiple Decotiis siblings that were involved in a bitter family feud over inheritance.
Senior sibling is Teresa Decotiis, who is crying to the cops AGAIN.

"Unfortunately, the police are onto you now, so remove my name and pictures from your blogs and internet postings. I will be blocking you from my email immediately and ask that you do not contact me again.

Trying to blackmail, extortion, extort me for money, and harrass me are on the police file. I do not know you, and I do not want you near me as I will be getting a restraining order against you. As the police are on to you!

I do not know where you are coming from, and people you mention in your emails and blogs are not people I want to be associated with.

[48] At some point, Mr. Dipopolo acquired a one-third interest in a company called Liquid Zoo Holdings Ltd. On August 23, 2005, Mr. Dipopolo, together with the two other shareholders in Liquid Zoo Holdings Ltd., Messrs. Bruneau and Raffael, signed a promissory note for $350,000 payable to Amacon Management.

[62] Liquid Zoo Holdings executed a mortgage dated May 12, 2006, in favour of Amacon for the amount of $650,000. However, this mortgage was not registered until more than one year later, on August 10, 2007. Mr. Dipopolo appeared to consider the mortgage to be further security for Amacon's $350,000 loan to the three Liquid Zoo Holdings shareholders made about one year earlier, in August 2005.
The Dipopolo brothers are hired by the Decotiis to threaten and harrass enemies, including Brandon Vito Hughes. He thereafter winds up dead. 2 years before the hit Damiano Dipopolo and the HAMC enjoyed major league unsecured financing from the Decotiis for their HA expansion into Kelowna.

Costa Rica seizes 4.3 tons of Colombian cocaine

Costa Rican police seized 4.3 tons of cocaine originating from Colombia. It represents the second-largest drug seizure ever in the country. The cocaine was transported in a container loaded with ceramic floor tiles. The commercial ship arrived at the Costa Rican port of Moin from Colombia's port of Turbo.
Costa Rican cops have seized 10.7 tons of cocaine hidden in containers so far this year. In 2020, they seized 16.2 tons.
