Jefferson Randolph Smith - Soapy Smith

Jefferson Randolph "Soapy" Smith was an American con artist and gangster. Smith gained notoriety through his "prize soap racket" in which he would sell bars of soap with prize money hidden in some of the bars. Through sleight-of-hand he would ensure that only gang members won a prize. Soapy Smith built three successive criminal empires in Denver and Creede, and in Skagway, Alaska. When the Klondike Gold Rush began in 1897, Smith moved his operations. His three-card monte and pea-and-shell games on the White Pass Trail weren't appreciated by the Miner's Committee. Smith left and didn't return to Skagway until late January 1898. On July 4, 1898, Smith rode as marshal of the Fourth Division of the parade leading his thugs on his gray horse. On the grandstand, he sat beside the territorial governor.

Smith had problems in Skagway soon after.

“Soapy got drunk and went out to fight them all. Arriving at the place where an indignation meeting was being held, Soapy found five men guarding the entrance. He rapped Frank Reid, the city engineer, over the head with a rifle. Reid snapped his pistol at Soapy and Soapy shot him in the groin. Standing on one foot Reid put three bullets into Soapy, killing him instantly.”

At 38 years old, Soapy was shot dead with a bullet through the heart.

Montreal HA Daniel André Giroux tells parole board what's up

Daniel André Giroux, 52, was sentenced to seven years in prison in July 2021 after pleading guilty to gangsterism and drug trafficking. After pre-trial custody, he had 30 months left, and he was released at two-thirds of his sentence. Because the biker represents a risk to society, the parole board imposed conditions. Giroux must stay in a halfway house, disclose his financial transactions, not communicate with any individual involved in a criminal organization or having a criminal history, and he will not be able to go to bars or consume drugs and alcohol. Giroux argued this was illegal and violated the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, that there is no applicable law that allows for the imposition of special conditions, and that he "does not and will not consent" to them.
The PCB was unimpressed and had other ideas. Daniel André Giroux can either abide by his conditions or return to prison.

Mr. Flashy - David Glen Ward - update X

Karl Hyland, left, and David Glen Ward, right.
Wide censorship of Mr Flashy's photo and identity has ended in Ireland as he has been charged with the serious offense of violent disorder. Things have been quiet regarding Mr. Flashy lately, following his second attempted hit. Dubbed 'the gang that can't shoot straight', various thugs are known to be involved. Cops suggest Mr. Flashy's enemies haven't given up.
An associate of Glen Ward was shot in the hand and ass. He is recovering. Gardai found a car that was set on fire in the Berryfield area of Finglas. The latest hit attempt is the second time for this sidekick of Mr Flashy. He survived a shooting while travelling in a taxi with the Dublin gang boss in June.

Mr. Flashy (Glen Ward) left, Eric O'Driscoll center, Darragh Collopy.
Glen Ward is now making efforts to conceal that mug from cameras. The judge deferred free legal aid for Ward and O'Driscoll, pending their bank account details. This after a complaint from cops that Glen Ward has ample means to pay a lawyer. The trio will be back in court and face up to 10 years in jail.
Glen Ward, 29, his brother Eric O'Driscoll, 20, and Darragh Collopy, 18 were spotted on CCTV footage by gardai who arrested them for the crime of violent disorder. Irish censorship of Glen Ward's mug is officially over as he has been charged with a serious offense. Its said the Irish public are livid the gangster is claiming poverty and receiving free legal aid from the state. Dublin's Mr. Flashy (David Glen Ward) was filmed in an armed street brawl. Mr Flashy and his punks took on associates of the murdered Shane Fowler. Flashy can be heard saying: “Tell your boyfriend we’re on. “We’re bulletproof. Your gaff is getting blazed.” Recently Flashy and one of his bums were no-shows in court due to threats. The petty theft case was put back to a later date. Both lags received legal aid due to poverty. The duo are accused of stealing wine as they left an expensive Dublin restaurant.
A 'vulnerable' man was threatened by David Glen Ward who demanded €30k after he 'liked' a social media post of rivals. The north Dublin man, in his 20s, was once friendly with Flashy. The man attempted suicide due to the threats.

This follows the firebombing of the home of James Whelan’s mother. She and brother of James Whelan escaped unhurt. After a certain point one accepts the world would be better off without the likes of wicked scumbag Mr. Flashy in it.
Days after running for his life from a gunman, Mr. Flashy posted video on social media of his care free criminal mug on a Jet Ski. Mr. Flashy always thinks of his fans. NATURALLY the Irish have kindly seen fit to censor Flashy's mug (and name) from public view again. Gangster David Glen Ward must be laughing.

If he were Garda Síochána's little ratboy it would explain everything.
Mr. Flashy enemies make a good point about David Glen Ward being a rat. Arrested often but NEVER touched as all fall around him. This is signature rat.
Mr Flashy ran for his life after the taxi carrying him and an associate in Dublin was shot up. Cops expected retaliation over the Flashy mob murder of rival James Whelan in April. Cops say Whelan's allies tried to gun down the mob boss and his sidekick.
