No words to described just a Perv pedophile on my own words. My only suggest if the FBI and I.C.E should be aware of the conduct of this pedophile. send your comments at his email
I am wonder if the Board of Members of the Minuteman Groups, S.O.S will not consider INMORAL, PERV AND PEDOPHILE ACTION........This was his comments after making this Video.

I've been informed some dirty minded folks out there have issues with my work. Get over it. I am only capturing a few moments in time on the public streets. I did not stalk anyone. I have not violated any laws or morals. However, consider in some countries the subjects in this video, would be stoned to death, for their behavior shown here.

How Hyprocites and Ignorance are those Minuteman Members saying they are running a background check before they admitted and do no have, carry any gun or artifacts that make engaged the safety of the Citizens.

Thank you for your response, again.

As of Sunday, August 5th, I have not received my money or any notice of any attempt to deliver it. If the original date of July 20th was the date sent, it has been over 2 weeks. If July 24th, then today makes it 2 weeks. In either case, it should have only been 3 days.
If it was in fact sent "registered" there should be a way for the USPS to track it based on the number. I personally believe that it was never sent. If it was I'd expect you would have provided me with the USPS article number so we both could try to find out what happened.

The simple solution would be to simply Paypal the $50.00 to my email address. It will cost me about $1.75 to do this (Paypal fee) but will save us both a lot of time. There would be no cost on your end and it would put this issue behind us, however I'd expect you to be willing to pay the fee for a couple reasons: 1) wasting my time responding to emails about a subject that should have been taken care of over a month ago by the local leadership and 2) I should not be forced to pay anything to get MY money back that MCDC has absolutely NO legal right to keep.

It should be no problem to do this if you truly want this issue resolved.

I expect the money to be in my Paypal account within 24 hours. I'm through being jerked around. Failure to have my money (not a "check") in my possession within 24 hours will force me to take the first step of many by filing a mail fraud complaint with the Omaha area Postal Inspector's office naming you, Chris Simcox, Gary DeLancey, and Mike Narducci as direct, knowing, and willing participants in the crime.

What does it take for you to take me seriously?? Will official notification of a federal criminal complaint be enough to get your attention? Is MCDC that desperate for money as to waste this much time over $50.00 it has no legal right to keep?? Is your time worth nothing because you are a volunteer? What will it cost in time and legal fees to simply answer an investigational inquiry from the Postal Inspector's office?

This will only be my first step.

You and MCDC have already made it abundantly clear to me that you think my time is worth nothing. $50.00 pays for an infinite amount of time at that rate. That being the case then I will have no problem spending large amounts of my worthless time to cost you and others at MCDC large amounts of your time as well as legal fees.

The check was sent overnight by UPS next day tomorrow, we had the original letter sent to you certified mail ,it was returned to us today because of a POST OFFICE mistake, I personally put it in next day UPS delivery, tracking number 1ZR3156W0113533301 it will be delivered to you before your 22 hour threat is up. What a joke. Now you can go back to hanging with your other prick friends, you are a joke and we are relieved that you did not make the cut to be a volunteer with MCDC, it's jerks like you who give the entire movement a bad name. Good riddance!
Chris Simcox



I received the check today. (see attached image) The check better clear.

I hope you are successful in your efforts to try to awaken America to the threats we face. I also hope you will humble yourself and realize that there are many others in this cause, and others, that would work with you if you can show that you can follow as well as lead.

You said it was a a POST OFFICE mistake but as you can see in the scanned image there was no postage paid. Is that their mistake? The check memo says "Refund for duplicate payment" but that is not accurate either. It is a refund of my ONLY payment.

Your attitude in your response to this issue (below) is a perfect reason why I CHOSE not to join MCDC. You say I "did not make the cut" when the FACTS are that your local people dropped the ball, didn't communicate, and it took a month and a half for me to hear from anybody. I let the local chapter director know I changed my mind and two weeks later Brenda emailed me looking for missing info on my application. Anybody that knows me knows I am a pitbull when I decide to go after an issue and can be a great ally or your worst nightmare. I've been fighting for liberty since long before you ever came on the scene.

Have you ever made Sarah Brady go speechless with a single question at one of her press conferences and caused them to shut it down? Can you say that you are personally responsible for killing a proposed semi-auto ban or other legislation in your state? Nebraska has not had one single piece of anti-gun legislation proposed since I educated our legislature. Over 12 years ago! Have you personally been responsible for preserving the liberty of others?

You say "jerks" like me give the entire movement a bad name yet you can't admit the fact that you have done more to damage the credibility of the movement by your actions than any ten other people involved in it. One example is using Ramos and Campean for fundraising without the families' permission. Did they get any financial aid from MCDC's proceeds?

You say I'm a joke yet you obviously don't truly think so or you would not have gone to the trouble to meet the deadline.

As for my "prick friends" as you call them, do you believe you are clairvoyant? You don't know my friends, have no idea whom I go "hanging with," and probably would quickly be seen for what you are if you showed up. My friends recognize honest people.

I will continue to work with anybody willing to work with me to do what I can to secure this nation and preserve the liberties of ALL Americans. Yes, even you after your insulting tirade. You have a right to your opinion no matter how wrong you may be.

Again, I wish you well in your efforts to secure our borders. Keep in mind that there are many others just as dedicated, or more so, that are involved and a concerted effort always works much better than a splintered one.

This look like a Circus, Nobody should be more responsible of this actions that them and for those people funding these Clowns should be ashamed. That's what all Minuteman Groups Want$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ for the early retirement.

See for yourself on this link[1].pdf

African American and Hispanic Community against Minuteman Groups

Another Unwelcome blast to the Minuteman Groups..

Exposed Unwelcome to Minuteman Members

Minuteman Groups will fall by their own Ignorance and Xenophobia.

Another Violence and disrupted scene from Minuteman Members

Do you know the legacy or Policy from Minuteman groups?
Is Alliance and increase Violence. See for yourself

What an Outrageous Criminals is Robert Crooks and some Minuteman Members

This is a disgusting Xenophobic and Racist ACTION by this Minuteman Members. Where's the FBI, United Nations, Human Rights, International Laws stand on this Crime. This is an outrageous Racist and Terrorist Crime.

We the people fighting for freedom, liberties and Power

If you are part of any Minuteman Groups don't watch this Video if you are not enjoy it.

Jim Gilchrist, the President and Founder of the Minuteman Project, said the Hijackers are terrorists,liars, disrupting, destroying, seizing, and plunders.This is what all Minuteman is about? Stealing, lying, destroying people lifes,($)taking their Money from our Citizens and Living la Vida Loca.

The Honorable Randell L. Wilkinson handed down a concise and thorough decision on June 6th against Marvin Stewart, Deborah Ann Peterson, (alias Deborah Ann Courtney), Barbara Coe and Scott Powelson (also known as the hijackers).

The judge ruled the following:

Scott Powelson’s motion for a prejudicial dismissal – Motion denied.

Minuteman Project and its president, Jim Gilchrist, won.

Scott Powelson’s motion to release bond money, put up by the MMP, to opposing counsel for the benefit of the hijackers - Motion denied.

Minuteman Project and its president, Jim Gilchrist, won.

The hijacker’s motion to send the Minuteman Project into receivership – Motion denied.

Minuteman Project and its president, Jim Gilchrist, won.

The hijacker’s motion to receive the remaining funds in the Minuteman Project corporate account, which Jim Gilchrist ordered the bank to freeze when he discovered actions by the hijackers that appeared to be bank fraud. – Motion denied.

Minuteman Project and its president, Jim Gilchrist, won.

The hijacker’s motion to release bond money for the benefit of the hijackers – Motion denied.

Minuteman Project and its president, Jim Gilchrist, won.

Stewart, Peterson and Coe motion for joinder - Motion denied.

Minuteman Project and its president, Jim Gilchrist, won.

The court viewed the actions of the hijackers as frivolous, untimely, and without merits.

Minuteman Project and its president, Jim Gilchrist, won.

The Superior Court transcript of this hearing will be available by free download within the next few days.

Watch for the hijackers next desperate tricks:

1. The hijackers will continue to fraudulently claim that they are the Minuteman Project.

2. The hijackers will claim that they have been damaged and will troll for a sympathetic audience.

3. The hijackers will probably claim fraud and a number of other spurious claims against Jim Gilchrist and his staff of consultants.

4. The hijackers will try to make this a media event to continue their charade of distortions in a desperate attempt to gain public sympathy.

5. The hijackers will try to fraudulently raise money in the name of the Minuteman Project. Fraudulent use of the Minuteman Project identity appears to be one of their primary motives for attempting to hijack Jim’s Minuteman Project …an attempt that was defeated, albeit not without much damage inflicted upon the MMP and the minuteman/woman movement nationally.

6. The hijackers will try to recruit other organizations to build their sympathy base, and in the opinion of the Minuteman Project, to use as their next victim for attempted seizure.

The hijackers will do nothing to save America, but will relentlessly waste their resources trying to destroy the only man who stood up to Congress and brought national awareness to the illegal alien invasion crisis! Whose payroll are these unscrupulous hijackers on? All of their actions are designed to stall the tireless work of immigration law enforcement advocacy groups across the nation. They have already created at least one fraudulent Minuteman Project web site using both Jim’s appearance and his MMP logos to deceive the public in an apparent effort to simultaneously draw financial donations and destroy the reputation of Jim, the Minuteman Project, and the Project’s participants.

This is what terrorists do….lie, disrupt, destroy, seize, and plunder.

Whose side are you on? Me Neither way. I stay away from polluted and Negative, disrupters liars.

Defendants operated and promoted the First International Bank of Grenada, which defrauded depositors out of nearly $170 Million

Portland, Ore. — Today in federal court in Portland, Oregon, United States District Court Judge Garr M. King announced sentencing in the case of four defendants who had previously pled guilty to charges arising out of their involvement in promoting a $170 million fraudulent investment scheme in the name of the First International Bank of Grenada (FIBG). In their sentencing presentation, federal prosecutors described the FIBG scheme as “easily the largest Ponzi scheme in the history of the District of Oregon and one of the most devastating anywhere.” Several victims of the scheme were present at sentencing and told the court how much money they had lost and how the case had affected their lives. The defendants and their sentences are as follows:

Robert J. Skirving, 59, of Portland, Oregon, was sentenced to 97 months incarceration, to be followed by a three-year term of supervised release. He was ordered to pay restitution of more than $32,000,000.

Laurent Barnabe, 68, a Canadian citizen and current resident of Lake Oswego, Oregon, was sentenced to 72 months incarceration, to be followed by a three-year term of supervised release. Barnabe was also ordered to forfeit his interest in money held in a foreign bank account and to pay restitution of more than $26,000,000.

Douglas Ferguson, 74, of Portland, Oregon, was sentenced to 52 months incarceration, to be followed by a three-year term of supervised release. He was also ordered to pay restitution of more than $26,000,000.

Rita Regale, 54, of Portland, Oregon, was sentenced to 18 months incarceration, to be followed by a three-year term of supervised release. She was also ordered to pay restitution of more than $26,000,000.

“Through their deceitful scheme, the defendants shattered the retirement hopes and dreams of thousands of victims throughout the world to lavishly enrich themselves,” stated United States Attorney Karin J. Immergut. “This was an extremely difficult case that required federal prosecutors and agents from the Internal Revenue Service/Criminal Investigation Division and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to relentlessly hunt down evidence all over the world. We are pleased that these defendants will finally be held accountable for their crimes.”

The sentencing brought to a conclusion an eight-year investigation and prosecution into a massive fraud scheme operated out of the Caribbean nation of Grenada with ties to Oregon. The defendants were indicted in October 2003 on conspiracy, fraud, and money laundering charges arising out of the creation and promotion of the First International Bank of Grenada. Established in 1997, FIBG offered interest rates to depositors as high as 300%. It claimed to have earned more than $12 billion in high-yield trading, and to have acquired assets in excess of $26 billion. In reality, it was just a Ponzi scheme, attracting deposits of approximately $170 million dollars and using that money to make phony “interest” payments to depositors, invest in phony high-yield investment schemes, and pay significant sums to the defendants. Some of the money was obtained by persuading victims to roll-over pension and IRA money into FIBG. When FIBG was taken over by the Grenadian government in August 2000, it had less than $2 million in real assets. Several Oregon depositors lost significant sums of money. The prosecution was undertaken in Oregon because almost $50 million dollars raised during the scheme were funneled through a bank account in Forest Grove, Oregon.
As part of its sentencing submission, the government outlined some of the benefits enjoyed by the defendants with money raised by the Bank:

Defendant Skirving purchased a $1.3 million home in Clackamas, Oregon and a $2.8 million home in Las Vegas, Nevada. He also invested more than $1 million in an organic tomato farm in Mulino, Oregon.

Defendant Barnabe purchased a $350,000 yacht he called the “Offshore Funs,” and wire transferred more than $1 million from Grenada to accounts in Austria.

Defendant Regale chartered private planes to travel between Grenada and the U.S. at a cost of $30,000 per trip, purchased three Mercedes automobiles at a cost of approximately $200,000, and rented a lavish beachfront home in Naples, Florida for more than $300,000.

Defendant Ferguson and his girlfriend received more than $25,000 per month during their involvement in the scheme.

In addition to contacting and coordinating with thousands of victims worldwide, the investigation of this case required several unusual steps, including obtaining the Bank’s records from Grenada, locating and seeking forfeiture of assets throughout the United States, Grenada, Austria, and Uganda, and the arrest of two persons – one of whom was Douglas Ferguson – in Uganda in early 2004. In preparation for trial, witness depositions were taken in Grenada, Barbados, Canada, and Britain. In addition to these defendants, four other individuals – including two attorneys – have been charged in related indictments or as part of obtaining their cooperation


YOUNG WOMAN'S desperate, blood-curdling screams echoed through a Feltonville neighborhood yesterday, jolting residents out of their early- morning slumber.
As the moon reddened from a full lunar eclipse, the 18-year-old woman's blood spilled in an alley on Boudinot Street near Roosevelt Boulevard: She had just been raped while waiting for a bus, and apparently had cut herself with a knife while trying to fight off her attacker.

The woman's terrified shrieks drew several people out of their homes. A middle-age man rushed to her side, scared off the rapist, and carried the woman into a neighbor's house, where she sobbed uncontrollably, battered and bloodied, until police and medics arrived.

The rape left residents rattled, and several said they hoped to leave their drug-infested neighborhood.

Police investigators meanwhile tried to compile information on the rapist, eager to get the violent predator off the streets.

"It's unfortunate that there are always those out there that are going to take an opportunity if they can to hurt an innocent victim," said Capt. John Darby, of the police Special Victims Unit.

Darby said the attack occurred shortly before 6 a.m. The attacker skulked up behind the woman while she was waiting at a bus stop for her ride to work. He dragged her into a nearby alley, raped her and possibly robbed her, Darby said.

The victim was treated at Episcopal Hospital and released.

The attacker is described as a light-skinned black, 19 or 20 years old, about 5-feet-7, and 180 to 190 pounds. He wore a red baseball cap, Darby said.

"These are very difficult situations to deal with, because when you have a victim that is attacked from behind, it's hard to react," Darby said.

Ruth Summers, 64, said her neighbor - a man in his late 40s whom she knows only as Wendell - scared the rapist away and carried the victim into Summers' house on Roosevelt Boulevard to call 911.

"The girl was hysterical. There was blood on her hand. She said she tried to use a knife to fight him off, and she ended up getting cut," Summers said.

"I felt so bad. She was so young. Her clothes were a mess and she just kept sobbing and sobbing and sobbing."

Summers said her neighborhood is rife with crime and drugs. "Someone broke into my house over the summer," she said. "My son and I want to move."

Other residents expressed similar sentiments.

"I can't even begin to imagine what that girl went through," said a neighbor, Iliana, who asked that her last name not be used.

"I mean, it just gives me goosebumps just thinking about it," she said, tears welling in her eyes.

"People are saying now that it's time to move. It's sad, though, so sad, because now that this has happened, it's making people step back and think twice."

On Boudinot Street yesterday, children flocked around an ice-cream truck and tried to soak up the last bits of summer fun amid police cruisers and crime-scene tape.

Sex with other men consensual, ex-cop tells Chester County jury. We were like right hand and left hand together

A former Chester County police officer accused of drugging and sexually assaulting several men admitted in testimony yesterday that he had sex or other intimate encounters with his accusers, but he said that the activities had been consensual and that he had never drugged them.

Mark Ethan McFall is accused of giving out medication and then molesting the unconscious or groggy men, often recording his acts. He is charged with rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, sexual assault, unauthorized administration of an intoxicant and related counts.

McFall, 43, a former South Coatesville cop and now a tow-truck driver, told jurors in West Chester yesterday that he is bisexual. He described trysts with one of his accusers and said he had taken part in an erotic Christmas-card photo shoot with another.

McFall contended that the activities had been consensual and that none of the encounters involved his slipping the accusers medications to render them unconscious.

But he said he had a "very long-term, much closer relationship" with a third man with whom he had been friends for more than a dozen years and who has accused him of similar offenses. "We were like right hand and left hand together," he said. *

Nursing homes should be required to run a Criminal Background to make sure they are not Criminals or sexual predators to put others in a high Risky otherwise they should be liable. This man had been arrested 58 times and twice as other sex crimes.

Jury Awards $750,000 In Nursing Home Rape Case.

JACKSONVILLE, FL -- It has been four long years for Sandra Banning since her mother was raped.

"I was with mother, had to tell her she had been raped, had to take her to the sexual response center to be examined. I held her hand while she cried," says Banning.

But she says today there is justice.

"I'm elated, I'm so happy, when I heard guilty it made my world."

Four years ago Sandra's mother, 77-year-old Virginia Thurston was a patient here at Southwood Nursing Center.

Police say while Virginia was asleep nurses walked in and found 83-year-old Ivey Edwards, another patient, in her room on top of her.
Edwards was charged with rape.

Sandra later found out he had been arrested 58 other times dating back to 1945, and was convicted twice of other sex crimes.

"If I had any idea that man, that monster, I can't even call him a man, was there, I wouldn't have let momma be there," says Banning.

Edwards is now in a mental hospital.

Sandra sued Southwood for negligence for not telling the other patients about Edwards' past.
Now a jury returned a verdict in her favor, awarding $750,000.

A spokesman for Southwood's parent company Sterling Healthcare tells First Coast News, "we were really surprised, we didn't think the case had much value. It was of an explosive nature, but we did everything we could."

"Even though it still hurts me deeply what she went through, I feel the verdict from yesterday will give us more fuel to go forward with a change," says Banning.

Sandra's mother passed away in 2003, but Sandra plans to push for a change in the law.

She wants nursing homes to be required to check patients' backgrounds and make sure they are not violent or sexual offenders.

Six mens arrested for hunting and soliciting prostitution online.

PLAISTOW – One of six men arrested in a highly publicized prostitution sting in Kingston appeared in court Monday, pleaded guilty to a Class B misdemeanor charge of soliciting sex online for prostitution and was fined $720.

A judge suspended another $720 in fines for Steven Lafave, 44, of Auburn. If he has no run-ins with the law in the next 12 months, he won't have to pay the suspended amount, according to the Plaistow District Court.

Four of the other suspects - including Richard Osborne, the long-time voice of the University of New Hampshire Wildcats hockey team - waived their arraignment yesterday.

Meanwhile, it's uncertain whether Osborne will be behind the microphone when UNH hockey games begin in October.

Dot Sheehan, general manager for sports radio network at UNH, said the network is waiting to see what happens at Osborne's trial.

"He was a very valued member of our radio staff for a long time, and we are sensitive to his tenure here," Sheehan said. "We still wanted to treat Dick with dignity because he had been here for 26 years. He did a superb job for us."
Sheehan would not comment about who, if anyone, may replace Osborne.

Osborne and the others were arrested July 19 when police had set up an undercover sting operation at an undisclosed house for nearly nine hours. They had received nearly 35 serious inquiries to advertisements placed on craigslist under erotic services.

Osborne, the communications director for the New Hampshire Technical Institute in Concord, is still employed with the community college system, said system spokesman Shannon Reid.

The trial dates have not been set for the four who waived their arraignment: Osborne; Joseph Geoffroy, 45, of Hudson; Daniel J. Driscoll, 42, of Plaistow; and Shaun Menzie, 43, of Atkinson.

Menzie, who also was charged with marijuana possession, resigned his job as executive director of the Boys Club in Haverhill, Mass., several weeks after his arrest.

The final suspect, Daniel Beers, 35, of Pelham, appeared in court Monday and pleaded not guilty. He faces a trial on Oct. 25.

School-bus driver arrested in teen sex.

A 62-year-old Queen Creek Unified School District bus driver has been arrested on suspicion of having sexual contact with a 15-year-old girl on his bus, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said Sunday.

According to the Sheriff's Office, John Joseph Byrne of Queen Creek admitted having a sexual relationship with the girl since she was 14.

The girl reportedly told investigators Byrne had been molesting her over a three-year period when they were alone on the bus, escalating Friday to intercourse.

Sheriff's deputies arrested Byrne late Saturday on 10 counts of sexual conduct with a minor and four counts of sexual abuse.

A,B,C,D,E,F..Follow me. Former Female Teacher accused of having sex with 2 boys.

Former Kentfield school teacher has been charged with having sex with two 15-year-old Redwood High School boys during a drunken encounter in Corte Madera, authorities said.

Amy Lee Kelly, 41, of Benicia is charged with two counts of lewd acts upon a child and one count of unlawful sexual intercourse, according to court documents. If convicted, she faces a potential prison sentence of more than four years and would have to register as a sex offender, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Kathryn Mitchell.

Kelly, who taught at Bacich Elementary School until leaving last year, has pleaded not guilty in Marin Superior Court and is free on bail. She is due back in court Sept. 6 to set a date for a preliminary hearing.

The case stems from an incident on Oct. 20, when Kelly went to the home of a friend in Corte Madera. Kelly started drinking beer and red wine and became so intoxicated that her friend took her car keys away, according to an affidavit filed by Mitchell.

That evening, the 15-year-old Redwood High boys showed up at the house to visit the daughter of Kelly's friend. Both boys had consumed alcohol.

At some point during the visit, the daughter noticed that one of the boys was no longer downstairs. She went upstairs and saw the boy and Kelly engaging in sexual activity on her bed, the affidavit said.

Upset, the daughter went back downstairs. Later in the night, she realized the second boy was also gone, so she went back upstairs and saw the second teen having sex with Kelly, Mitchell said.

"(The girl) was upset and took photographs of defendant while defendant was naked and in the presence of one of the male juvenile subjects," Mitchell wrote.

The next morning, Kelly told the Corte Madera woman what happened, mentioning that one of the boys was a virgin, and the woman confirmed the story that day after confronting the teens at a Redwood High School football game, according to the affidavit.

In subsequent interviews with the Twin Cities Police Department, the first boy told investigators that he and a woman had fondled each other at the house, and the second teen said the woman asked him upstairs, performed oral sex on him and then had intercourse with him.

Police then lined up six photographs, one of Kelly and the others of similar-looking women. The first teen told investigators that he was 90 percent certain Kelly was the woman he had sexual contact with. The second boy reported a 50 percent certainty.

Kelly, who had resigned from Bacich the previous spring, left the area for some time after the incident, police said. Last month, when prosecutors obtained a $100,000 warrant for Kelly's arrest, her attorney brought her into the Twin Cities Police Department for booking and a DNA sample.
Kelly could not be reached for comment Friday. Her defense attorney, Michael Semansky of Walnut Creek, did not return a call left with his office.

Kelly, who is divorced and has two children, worked at Bacich for 11 years, said Bob Caine, superintendent of the Kentfield School District. Caine said he did not know why she resigned and did not know where she has been working since.

Another Sexual Scandal for the Republican Party. Mr. Craig Says 'I Am Not Gay,' Did No Wrong. The actions speaking by it self. I have brought a cloud over Idaho. What do you think about that?.

BOISE, Idaho - A defiant Sen. Larry Craig denied any wrongdoing Tuesday despite his guilty plea this summer in a men's room police sting, emphatically adding, "I am not gay. I never have been gay."

Craig, a third-term senator from Idaho, proclaimed his innocence as well as his sexuality less than an hour after Senate leaders from his own Republican Party called for an ethics committee review of his case.

"This is a serious matter," they said in Washington in a written statement that offered neither support nor criticism of the conservative senator. Issued in the names of Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the party leader, and several others, the statement said they were examining "other aspects of the case to determine if additional action is required."

Craig, his wife, Suzanne, at his side, took no questions in a brief appearance in the capital city of the state he has represented in Congress for more than two decades in the House and then the Senate.

He had "overreacted and made a poor decision" when he was apprehended by an undercover police officer in a men's room at the Minneapolis airport and later pleaded guilty.

"While I was not involved in any inappropriate conduct in the Minneapolis Airport or anywhere else, I chose to plead guilty to a lesser charge in hopes of making it go away." He said he kept the information from his friends, family and staff, adding, "I wasn't eager to share this failure but I should have anyway because I am not gay."

Nor did he hire a lawyer, Craig said, although he now has retained counsel "to review the matter and advise me on how to proceed."

"I have brought a cloud over Idaho and for that I seek and ask the people of Idaho to forgive me," he said.

His account contrasted sharply with the complaint in the case, in which an undercover officer said that Craig, while occupying a stall in the men's room, engaged in actions "often used by persons communicating a desire to engage in sexual conduct."
Craig was read his rights, fingerprinted and required to submit to a mug shot at the time of his arrest.

Police notes also show that on June 22, 11 days after the arrest, Craig returned to the police station and said no one had yet contacted him about his case. "Craig told me that he needs a contact so his lawyer can speak to someone," wrote the officer who spoke with the senator, Adam Snedker.

The senator signed and dated his guilty plea to a charge of disorderly conduct on Aug. 1, and court papers indicate it was submitted by mail and filed a week later. The court docket said Craig paid $575 in fines and fees and was put on unsupervised probation for a year. A sentence of 10 days in the county workhouse was stayed.

Craig, up for re-election next year, said he would announce his plans next month. If anything, he sounded like a man inclined to seek six more years in the Senate.

"Over the years, I have accomplished a lot for Idaho, and I hope Idahoans will allow me to continue to do that," he said.

Still, there already was speculation about a successor in the reliably Republican state. The Club for Growth, an anti-tax organization, issued a statement critical of Rep. Mike Simpson, whose name has been mentioned as a potential replacement candidate.
Regardless of Craig's plans, it was clear his political standing had suffered.

On Monday, he resigned from a prominent role with Republican Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, and the GOP White House hopeful was critical in an interview.

"He's disappointed the American people," Romney said on CNBC's "Kudlow & Company."

"Yeah, I think it reminds us of Mark Foley and Bill Clinton," he added. Foley was a a Florida congressman who sent salacious e-mails to underage male House pages. Clinton, the former president, was impeached by the House and acquitted in the Senate after his dalliance with a White House intern.

The official police complaint on Craig's case was detailed.

It said airport police Sgt. Dave Karsnia, who was investigating allegations of sexual conduct in airport restrooms, went into a stall shortly after noon on June 11 and closed the door.
Minutes later, the officer said he saw Craig gazing into his stall through the crack between the door and the frame.

After a man in the adjacent stall left, Craig entered it and put his roller bag against the front of the stall door, "which Sgt. Karsnia's experience has indicated is used to attempt to conceal sexual conduct by blocking the view from the front of the stall," said the complaint, which was dated June 25.

The complaint said Craig then tapped his right foot several times and moved it closer to Karsnia's stall and then moved it to where it touched Karsnia's foot. Karsnia recognized that "as a signal often used by persons communicating a desire to engage in sexual conduct," the complaint said.

Craig then passed his left hand under the stall divider into Karsnia's stall with his palm up and guided it along the divider toward the front of the stall three times, the complaint said.

The officer then showed his police identification under the divider and pointed toward the exit "at which time the defendant exclaimed `No!'" the complaint said.

The Aug. 8 police report says Craig handed the arresting officer a business card that identified him as a member of the Senate.
"What do you think about that?" Craig is alleged to have said, according to the report.

Craig, 62, has faced rumors about his sexuality since the 1980s, but allegations that he had engaged in gay sex have never been substantiated. He has denied the assertions

Trying to put his actions "in context," Craig lashed out at the Idaho Statesman, the state's largest newspaper, accusing it of a witch hunt on the issue.
In their statement, the GOP Senate leaders did not say what other actions they were considering in connection with Craig.

Separately, a private group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, filed a complaint with the ethics committee seeking an investigation into whether Craig violated Senate rules by engaging in disorderly conduct.

Serial Killer fugitive was arrested by U.S. Marshalls.

A Long Island man was caught yesterday in a nationwide dragnet after he killed six people in a spree spanning two hill country towns in Texas and a Pennsylvania suburb, federal authorities said yesterday.

U.S. marshals tracked down Paul G. Devoe III, 43, to a friend's home in Shirley. After a brief standoff, he was arrested on a Texas murder warrant and held for questioning in five other homicides - including the deaths of four people found in a Travis County, Texas, home, authorities said.

Devoe also was held on a federal charge of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, said Supervisory Deputy Marshal Hector Gomez.

He had a silver .380-caliber handgun with him when authorities found him at a house on River Road around midday yesterday, but he was persuaded to surrender, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.

Investigators believe Devoe shot and killed a bartender Friday in Marble Falls, Texas, before fleeing to a nearby town and killing four others two days later. En route to Long Island, he shot a woman in the head in Pennsylvania and stole her car.
In the quadruple killing, Devoe was charged yesterday with murder, according to a Travis County court affidavit. More charges are pending.

While closing in on Devoe, federal agents targeted places where they thought he would turn up. They sought his ex-girlfriend and told her she needed to leave her Suffolk home for her safety, said the woman, who didn't want her name revealed.

She said Devoe was a Patchogue native who drank too much and had a temper. She cut ties with him in 2001.
"I never dreamed this would happen," she said. She added that she never fathomed he was capable of killing five people, "but you can never put anything past anybody."

Devoe was sentenced to 20 months behind bars following a drunken-driving arrest in 1997 and served five years' probation, spokesman Robert Clifford said.

He was found at a home neighbors say belongs to Gerard Baldoni. Yesterday, marshals knocked on the doors of Baldoni's neighbors, telling them to leave their homes or get in their basements.

Neighbors on the usually quiet street described seeing a swarm of cars and agents in tactical gear, search dogs and helicopters overhead.

Agents stopped Stephanie Hancock at a roadblock when she tried to return home to her sons. "They said, 'Get your sons and get out of here,'" she said.

Surveillance was arranged in places Devoe was known to frequent, and authorities saw him inside the Shirley home, said Lenny DePaul, commander with the U.S. marshals' New York-New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force.

Neighbors said Devoe once worked with Baldoni as a house painter and described Baldoni as an older, reclusive man with health problems. Baldoni did not respond to a message left at his house yesterday.

The search for Devoe began in Texas after bartender Michael Allred, 41, died from a bullet wound to the chest at O'Neil's Bar in Marble Falls.
An enraged Devoe actually took aim at ex-girlfriend Glenda Purcell, 44, but missed and struck Allred, according to the affidavit.

After shooting Allred, police said, Devoe fled 30 miles south to Jonestown, Texas, about 28 miles north of Austin, in a blue Dodge pickup he stole from a friend. The pickup was recovered Sunday by police outside a two-story home in the 2,100-person town.
Inside, officers discovered the bodies of Paula Griffith, 46, who lived at the house, her boyfriend, Jay Feltner, 48, and Danielle Hensley, 17, according to a Travis County affidavit. All had been shot, the affidavit said.

Griffith's daughter, Haylie Marie Faulkner, 15, was also found shot, her brother told the Austin American-Statesman.

Recovered from the home were shell casings for a .380-caliber handgun - the same weapon Devoe had when police arrested him, the affidavit said.

A white 2001 Saturn station wagon belonging to the elder Griffith turned up outside a home in Greencastle, Pa., just off Interstate 81 about 160 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. State police found the woman dead in her home there, DePaul said.

The woman's car was recovered later outside the Shirley home, marshals said.

Devoe is scheduled to be arraigned today in Central Islip on an additional charge of being a fugitive from justice, authorities said.

DENVER - Troy A. Eid, United States Attorney for the District of Colorado, Cory Nelson, Acting Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Denver Office, Terry L. Stuart, Special Agent In Charge of the IRS-Criminal Investigation, Denver Field Office, and Jon T. Rymer, Inspector General for the FDIC, announced that THOMAS ALAN BOYD, of Niwot, and JACK O. GRACE, JR., of Berthoud, were sentenced today by US Senior District Court Judge Richard P. Matsch for conspiracy and fraud related to the failure of Boulder based BestBank in Boulder. BOYD was sentenced to serve 90 months (7.5 years) in federal prison, and ordered to pay a $15,000 fine and forfeit $4,743,909 to the victims of the crime. GRACE was sentenced to serve 72 months (6 years) in federal prison, and ordered to pay a $15,000 fine and forfeit $92,000. Both were ordered to report to a facility designated by the Bureau of Prisons within 15 days of designation. The final defendant, Edward Mattar, is scheduled to get sentenced on October 19, 2007 at 10:00 a.m.

U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch rebuffed defense lawyers who argued that their clients were victims, saying “these defendants perpetrated a fraud on the banking system of the United States”.

Last week, co-defendants DOUGLAS R. BAETZ, and GLENN M. GALLANT, were both sentenced to each serve 120 months (10 years) in federal prison, as well as pay a $15,000 fine and ordered to forfeit over $23 million for their role in the BestBank failure. The forfeited money goes to victims of the crime.

U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch rebuffed defense lawyers who argued that their clients were victims, saying “these defendants perpetrated a fraud on the banking system of the United States”.

When BestBank failed in July of 1998, its largest asset was a portfolio of sub prime credit card accounts with a reported value of more than $200,000,000. Sub prime credit card borrowers are high risk borrowers with poor credit histories. The credit card accounts were funded by BestBank using money from depositors. BestBank attracted depositors by offering above market interest rates.

From 1994 through July 1998, the defendants engaged in a business operation that made more than 500,000 BestBank credit card loans to sub prime borrowers. In July of 1998, the Colorado State Banking Commissioner and the FDIC determined that the value of the sub prime credit card loans maintained as an asset on the books of BestBank was overstated because delinquent loans were fraudulently made to appear non-delinquent. BestBank’s liability to its depositors exceeded the value of its other assets, making it insolvent.

According to the indictment, BestBank entered into agreements with CENTURY FINANCIAL and BAETZ and GALLANT to market BestBank credit cards to sub prime borrowers. CENTURY FINANCIAL sold $498 travel club memberships, marketed first through Universal Tour Travel Club and later through All Around Travel Club (AATC).

In almost every instance, those who signed up for the travel club did not pay cash for their membership. Instead, BestBank and CENTURY FINANCIAL offered to finance a travel club membership for sub prime borrowers using a newly issued BestBank VISA credit card. The credit limit for the sub prime borrowers as provided by the bank was $600. BestBank also charged fees, which immediately brought the borrowers close to the credit limit. Less than half of those who signed up for the travel club received their membership materials.

The defendants carried out a fraudulent scheme in several ways. Most people did not pay the mandatory $20 service fee required before the account was funded. Over 50 percent of the sub prime borrowers’ accounts were non-performing.

BestBank and CENTURY FINANCIAL, in many instances, did not send the sub prime borrowers their credit card or monthly statements. The indictment further alleges that BAETZ, GALLANT, and CENTURY FINANCIAL fraudulently concealed the sub prime borrowers’ non-performance and delinquency rates by reporting non-performing accounts as performing. BAETZ and GALLANT paid $20 to some accounts so they would appear to be performing when in fact they were not.

"These defendants are finally headed to prison after engineering one of the biggest bank failures in Colorado history," said U.S. Attorney Troy Eid. "The FDIC Inspector General, FBI and IRS deserve enormous credit for seeing that justice is done."

“The sentences delivered by Judge Matsch in this case demonstrate the importance to protect the integrity of our financial institutions and to hold those accountable who exploit those positions of trust," said FBI Acting Special Agent in Charge Cory Nelson.

"Fraud schemes harm everyone. It creates an untaxed economy that uses legitimate businesses to launder illegal proceeds, and increases the costs of doing business in our community," said Terry L. Stuart, Special Agent in Charge, IRS Criminal Investigation, Denver Field Office.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

CNN's Bernard Shaw Blames Racism for Illegal Immigration Debate.

During an August interview, posted online, with Television Week, former CNN anchor Bernard Shaw blamed racism for the debate over whether illegal immigrants should be in the country as he referred to "some people who still believe that people of color are not needed in this country." In response to a question about diversity in the newsroom, Shaw contended that "each generation fights the same battle, only it becomes more subtle, more sophisticated, but it's still a war" before tying in the illegal immigration debate.

Shaw: "Look at the immigration battle right now. We have about 13 million people who have been living in this country for years, raising their children, educating them, and there's actually an argument about whether they should be here. They are here, and they are a vital part of the American fabric."

TELEVISION WEEK question: "What is the state of diversity in the newsroom today?"

BERNARD SHAW: "Proponents of diversity should never be pleased with the level of staffing, be it African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans ... proponents should never be pleased. There is an ingrained resistance in the minds of people who control to people who are different. That is natural because of the way this country evolved historically.

"The battle is never won. We taught our children, our son and daughter, that the battle is never won. Each generation fights the same battle, only it becomes more subtle, more sophisticated, but it's still a war. The battle is to help this great nation achieve the promise, that's all.

"Look at the immigration battle right now. We have about 13 million people who have been living in this country for years, raising their children, educating them, and there's actually an argument about whether they should be here. They are here, and they are a vital part of the American fabric.

"The battle is never won. There are some people who still believe that people of color are not needed in this country. And yet people of color have been the essence of this country since its beginning. So there's a great education requirement, and all of us are educators and we're going to make this country work

Body of 5-month-old left at funeral home, father charged

ALLENTOWN, Pa. --A man who gave his 5-month-old daughter an adult pain and sleeping medication and later found her dead was arrested and charged early Thursday, police said.

Tri Minh Doan, 31, of Allentown, drove the baby's body to a funeral home Wednesday afternoon after running other errands, and someone at the funeral home called police.

Doan was arraigned early Thursday on charges of endangering the welfare of a child and abusing a corpse. He was lodged in the Lehigh County Prison in lieu of $100,000 bail. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney.

Doan gave the baby a dose of adult Tylenol PM on Tuesday night because he wanted her to sleep, and found her dead later Tuesday night, according to an arrest affidavit. Tylenol PM carries a warning not to give it to children under 12.

Doan put the dead girl in a sport utility vehicle on Wednesday, drove to a store in Lancaster, where he covered her body with a pillow and went in to buy food and chewing gum, according to court documents.

He then returned to the Allentown area, ran other errands, then took the body to the Trexler Funeral Home, where he asked about services, court papers said.

Assistant Police Chief Joseph Hanna said he remained at the funeral home until officers arrived and was later interviewed at police headquarters.
Coroner Scott Grim said an autopsy would be performed Thursday.

1 Million Legal Skilled Workers Stuck in 'Immigration Limbo'. We have our eyes focused on the wrong ball
America Faces 'Reverse Brain Drain' as Complicated Laws and Green Card Backlogs Send them Home.

A recent study funded by the Kauffman Foundation suggests that the frustration of 1 million legal, skilled immigrants to get green cards is setting the stage for what could be the first "reverse brain drain" in American history. They say the immigration process is so arduous even for skilled immigrants that they run the risk of "lapsing into illegality.

Eight years ago, India-born Sacheen Kamath was hired by a U.S. technology start-up that was so successful it was quickly gobbled up by a California networking giant.

Although Kamath's work as computer engineer has been stellar -- he's led the development of a next-generation networking product -- his life here has begun to fall apart.

With his temporary visa, he can't get a promotion because any change in his job description, or even his salary, would force him to reapply for a new visa. The temporary status makes it difficult to plan ahead and do simple things like look for a new job or even buy a house.

Kamath's wife is unhappy because under his visa she is considered a dependent and cannot work. It's a stressful situation, enough so that he has developed hypertension.
Kamath is caught in "immigration limbo" -- like 1 million other talented legal immigrants waiting for a mere 140,000 permanent residency visas that are parsed out each year to highly skilled workers.

He applied for his so-called green card, which would give him legal resident status, in 2004, but when his company was bought out, he was forced to reapply, throwing him to the back of the line, meaning another four- to five-year wait.
Now Kamath wants to take his expertise and brain power home to India.

'Reverse Brain Drain'
A recent study conducted by researchers at Duke, Harvard and New York universities suggests that the frustration of legal, skilled immigrants like Kamath is setting the stage for what could be the first "reverse brain drain" in American history.

Bureaucratic headaches and personal struggles like the ones Kamath has experienced have led as many as 20 percent of legal immigrants to consider abandoning their American dreams, according to the collaborative study, titled "Intellectual Property, the Immigration Backlog and Reverse Brain Drain: America's New Immigrant Entrepreneurs." That reverse migration could rob U.S. industry and the economy of some of its most vital brainpower.

"I have begun to hate my work and my life in the U.S." said Kamath. "I think that it is better to be king in a third world country than a helpless immigrant in a superpower, developed one."

If he returns to India's vibrant economy, Kamath would work for his company's research center, and he would likely take along others who work for him.

"My company is already thinking of outsourcing work to India," he said. "But it's not easy to pack up eight years of your life, relocate and restart in a new country, not even your own."

For decades, the backbone of America's competitive economy has been its highly educated legal immigrants. The majority come from India, China, Mexico and the Philippines, attracted to the United States by the world's best universities, most vibrant companies and highest standard of living.

The study revealed that immigrants founded half of the tech and engineering companies started in Silicon Valley between 1995 and 2005. Nationwide, about one-quarter were started by immigrants.

It also discovered that 41 percent of the U.S. government's global patents had foreign nationals listed as inventors.

These are not the 12 million illegal immigrants who have captivated national attention and stirred congressional debate. Rather, these are doctors, engineers and technology superstars who have played by the rules and helped fuel the booming American economy.

And Joe Arpaio Didn't Arrested them, He only focus on Criminals not fugitives?...mmmmmmmm..

Tampa, Florida - Steven E. Ibison, Special Agent in Charge of the Tampa Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced the arrest of Karl Henry Rehberg, 64, and his wife, Helen Rehberg, 66. The Rehbergs were located and apprehended in Mesa, Arizona on Wednesday, August 22, 2007. The Mesa Police Department arrested the Rehbergs on federal arrest
warrants which were issued in the Middle District of Florida. The warrants were based on criminal complaints.

Karl Rehberg, former Chief Executive Officer, and Helen Rehberg, former Vice President, of the NOPEC Corporation, Lakeland, Florida, were alleged to have sold approximately $21 million in unregistered securities to 2800 investors. The Rehbergs claimed NOPEC was capable of converting waste cooking oil into bio-diesel fuel.

In December 1998, the Rehbergs fled Florida as federal charges were being brought against Karl Rehberg, and they have been on the run from law enforcement since then.

It is expected that the Rehbergs will be returned to the Middle District of Florida to face the outstanding charges.
The Mesa Police Department, which was instrumental in the capture, and the FBI are continuing their investigation into this matter.


WASHINGTON – Michael Barnhorst, 42, of Indianapolis, pleaded guilty to three counts of receiving child pornography, Assistant Attorney General Alice S. Fisher of the Criminal Division and U.S. Attorney Susan W. Brooks of the Southern District of Indiana announced today.

In pleading guilty before Chief U.S. District Judge Larry J. McKinney at the U.S. District Court in the Southern District of Indiana, Barnhorst admitted that he possessed images with photos of children engaged in various sexual acts. Barnhorst had been previously convicted on two counts of child molestation in 1994.

The case arose from “Operation Emissary,” a U.S. Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) investigation, which targeted individuals purchasing child pornography from a website that advertised and sold access to images depicting the sexual abuse of children. Barnhorst purchased access to the website and was intercepted downloading three illegal images. A search warrant was executed at his residence, and Barnhorst ultimately confessed to accessing child pornography websites and downloading images of the sexual abuse of children. A forensic examination of the hard drive seized from Barnhorst’s residence revealed numerous images of child pornography, including those downloaded from the intercepted website.
As part of his plea agreement, Barnhorst faces between 15 and 120 years in prison and lifetime supervised release. Sentencing has been scheduled for Nov. 16, 2007 at 11:30 a.m.

In February 2006, Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales created Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from online exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys Offices, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to better locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as identify and rescue victims. For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit

The case is being prosecuted jointly by Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven DeBrota for the Southern District of Indiana and Trial Attorney LisaMarie Freitas of the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS) of the Criminal Division. The case was investigated by ICE, and a forensic examination of the computer evidence was conducted by Computer Forensic Specialist Shannon Perkins of the High Tech Investigative Unit of CEOS.

Another Drunk driver kills a Mexican man outside NYC restaurant. Would the Media will make a National Issue out of this crime or just will be hidden because is an American Citizen who kills a Mexican Citizen?

A drunken driver crashed into a delivery van parked near Sheridan Square in Manhattan Saturday morning, killing one man and seriously injuring two others as they unloaded vegetables outside a restaurant, police said.

Van owner Victor Bravo, speaking from St. Vincent's Hospital, described the crash outside the Mercadito Grove restaurant, near the intersection of Grove Street and Seventh Avenue.

He said he, his younger brother and two others had just finished dropping off a load of vegetables about 7:20 a.m. and were preparing to leave when a silver SUV came down the street "at more than 50 miles per hour."

The Lincoln Aviator hit Antonio Hernandez and a co-worker as they stood behind the van, crushing the men and the rear of the Ford Econoline. "The guy came too fast and they had no time to run inside or something," said Bravo, who was standing on the sidewalk and was uninjured.

Hernandez, 36, of Brooklyn, died at the scene. The other worker, whom Bravo identified as Luis, 35, received injuries to both legs. Bravo's brother, Augusto, 26, who was inside the van when it was struck, had back and neck injuries, and a cut on his face. "It's all in my head right now," Bravo said. "I've never seen anything like this before."

Bravo watched as the SUV's driver, identified as Christian Robinson, 35, of East Orange, N.J., climbed out of his vehicle, where both air bags had deployed, and walked slowly around, apparently uninjured. "He just put his hand on his head and said, 'Oh my God,'" Bravo said. Robinson was arrested at the scene and charged with drunken driving. Additional charges are pending, police said.

Bravo, who runs his delivery business, Victor Produce, from East Fourth Street in the Kensington area of Brooklyn, said he and Hernandez worked during the week at a warehouse and that Hernandez often helped him out on weekends. Hernandez, originally from Tlaxcala in Mexico, has a 17-year-old son and a brother in the United States. His wife and three other children live in Mexico, Bravo said.

Four of the violators failed to change their address with the sheriff's office, one violator was living within 1,000 feet of Fairgrove Elementary School, and seven offenders were ordered to report to the sheriff's office to update their photo. The photo appears on the state's sex offender registry Web site.

Another disgusting news. I do not know how to classify this kind of Mentally Illness people.
Former executive sentenced for sex offenses involving kids within the ages of 3 and 8.

WACO, Texas — A former electric company executive was sentenced to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to improper sexual activity with four girls between the ages of 3 and 8.
Robert Ray Collier, 44, a former vice president of Leland Collier Electric Co., pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated sexual assault, one count of indecency with a child by contact and three counts of indecency with a child by exposure.

He will serve at least 20 years in prison before he is eligible for parole and must register as a sex offender.

During the victim impact statements after Collier was sentenced Monday, one girl's aunt called him a "sick, disgusting pedophile" and said his actions caused the child to have seizures and "be engulfed by a black cloud."

Another woman read a statement from the father of two of Collier's victims. The man said he was putting Christmas lights on Collier's house in 2005 while he thought his daughters were playing with Collier's children.

Instead, Collier blindfolded the 7-year-old girl and assaulted her, according to police. Authorities have said that Collier also made the girl and her sister watch a pornographic video with him.

One of the indecency charges involved a 3-year-old girl in a closet during a birthday party at a church last year.

Convicted rapist eyed in attack on neighbor

CUMBERLAND, R.I. - A convicted rapist released in April allegedly broke into a woman’s home and raped her last weekend, outraging neighbors who want to know why they weren’t told a high-risk offender was living nearby.

A 27-year-old woman told cops Sunday a neighbor raped her early that morning. After a search, police arrested Gary Lamountain, 37. He had registered as a sex offender. But Cumberland cops say they were not told until July 30 that he was a Level III offender, considered a high-risk to offend again and requiring a public warning. Cumberland police were preparing to issue a warning, but said the process was not complete.
