Сутенер вместо полиции.

В Сиэттле мэрия решила нанять сутенера вместо полиции.

Конечно, совсем не бесплатно. Налогоплательщикам эта затея обойдется в 150 000 долларов в год.

Seattle hires former pimp as ‘street czar’ for $150,000 after CHOP fiasco

Seattleis paying an ex-pimp $150,000 a year to act as the city’s “street czar” and offer “alternatives to policing” after protestsmorphed into the no-police-allowed Capitol Hill Occupied Protest.

Activist Andre Taylor is open about his past as a pimp (he appeared in the documentary “American Pimp”) and is working with the city of Seattle through his nonprofit, Not This Time. Taylor says he started Not This Time after his brother Che Taylor was killed by Seattlepolicein 2016.

Taylor was a critic of the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest and appeared on “Hannity” to support the father of a 19-year-old Black man who was shot and killed in the CHOP zone in June.

Taylor has previously worked with the city, receiving $100,000 for his nonprofit to host panel discussions called “Conversation with the Streets” in 2019,The Seattle Timesreported.

“Me, as a Black man has the right to be paid for my genius or for whatever my organization can provide,” Taylor toldKOMO News. “Black people as a whole have not been in a place to be compensated for their genius or their work for a very, very long time.”

Taylor’s July contract, first reported on byPubliCola, is with the city’s Department of Neighborhoods. It designates him as a consultant hired to “act as an adviser to the City of Seattle and ‘street czar’ community liaison.”

“Mayor Durkan believes that we have to make deep investments in community – one of the key demands of the Black Lives Matter protests,” Durkan spokesperson Kelsey Nyland told The Seattle Times in a statement.

“In early June, she committed in her 2021 budget a $100 million investment in community,” Durkan’s spokesperson continued. “Andrè spoke with organizers about how to turn activism and organizing into action at the state, local and federal level, and urged individuals to leave Capitol Hill.”

However, Taylor also encouraged CHOP protesters to ask the city for money before agreeing to leave the occupied zone.

“You gotta get something,” he told protesters in a recorded conversation, according to the Seattle Times. “Let me make that happen for you, and then I can bring that back to you. I don’t know, we’ll ask for $2 million. They might give us $1 million, but let’s ask for it. Because the reason why we’re holding that space is not only for George Floyd but for the millions of George Floyds.”

Taylor defended himself in an interview with the Seattle Times.

 

“I was concerned about the protesters leaving that space without having some type of win. … There were no qualms with me in that conversation. I would do it again,” he told the Times.

Fox News’ inquiry to the Seattle mayor’s office was not returned at the time of publication.

Чем дальше в лес…

Страна меняется стремительно и в очень плохую сторону.

Просто факты, которые вижу сам.

Прошлой ночью, уже после часа ночи, в соседнем с нами здании стреляли. Выстрелов было пять или шесть и ощущение было такое, будто бы стреляют у тебя под ухом. Впрочем, это не только ощущение. Метрах в полутора от моих окон стоит забор, к которому почти вплотную примыкает здание. Стреляли там. Выстрелы были слышны очень отчетливо, а вот привычных звуков присутствия на месте выстрелов полиции не было совсем. Полиция не приехала.

 

Пару минут назад, на нашей парковке остановилась машина и из нее, торжественно подняв голову, очень медленно вышел парень, из тех, которые сейчас из породы Untouchables. На наши вопросы, приехал ли он к кому-то из обитателей нашего дома, ответа не последовало. Но парень направился к забору, к тому самому, о котором я писал выше, отодвинул доску в заборе и скрылся за забором. Видимо, он живет в том самом здании, в котором ночью стреляли. Дело в том, что наша парковка только для обитателей дома, где я живу, или для наших посетителей. У нас и табличка есть, что автомобиль, у которого нет прав здесь стоять, может быть увезен. Но, как я понимаю, те времена прошли. В стране появились люди, которые могут делать все, что угодно. Без каких-либо последствий.

 

P.S. Завожу в блоге новый tag — Perestroyka. Честно говоря, я не очень хочу присутствовать при развале еще одной страны. Вчера впервые подумал о том, что нужно что-то предпринимать. Пока не очень понимаю что… Полагаюсь на Него.

P.P.S. Вчера, когда раздались выстрелы, а они были очень громкими, поскольку моя дверь на улицу была открыта и она тоже “смотрит” на этот забор, так вот, моя псина только приподняла голову, и — продолжила свой сон. Yepa вот так реагировала на обычные фейерверки. А нервы у Габи оказались крепче, чем мои.

Хоть какой-то “плюс”, среди всей этой безнадеги…

Стрельба под боком…

У нас здесь тоже стреляют. Совсем рядом.

Вывел Йипу по “ее делам”. Глубокая ночь, точнее, уже раннее утро.

За забором кто-то очень громко “разговаривает”. Голос женщины прерываются отрывистыми фразами произносимыми мужским голосом. Слова очень далеки от литературных…

Вдруг, — выстрел. Потом женский очень громкий крик. Визг…

Настоящее равноправие…

Наличие коляски у гражданина не защищает этого граданина от пуль полиции.

(CNN)Police officers, their guns raised, approach the man in the wheelchair and yell out loudly and repeatedly: “Drop the gun” and “hands up.”

His hands don’t rise. Shots are fired. And the man keels over out of his wheelchair and onto the ground.

The police chief in Wilmington, Delaware, defended his officers Thursday. The handicapped man, Jeremy McDole, was armed with a .38-caliber gun — the same one he’d apparently used on himself earlier, Chief Bobby Cummings said. And he never complied with the officers’ requests.
Instead, “when Mr. McDole began to remove the weapon from his waist, the officers engaged him,” Cummings said. In other words, the officers opened fire because they were concerned McDole might fire his weapon at them.

But the man’s mother saw it differently.

Детекторы лжи…

Несколько раз встречался с мнением россиян о том, что “детектор лжи” может выявить истину.

Вот, к примеру:

Расследование дела в отношении бывшего депутата Госдумы Михаила Глущенко, обвиняемого в организации убийства депутата Галины Старовойтовой, завершено. Об этом в понедельник, 29 июня, сообщает ТАСС со ссылкой на адвоката обвиняемого Александра Афанасьева.

«Из материалов дела об убийстве Старовойтовой было выделено в отдельное производство дело в отношении Михаила Глущенко. Основанием стало заключенное им со следствием досудебное соглашение о сотрудничестве и выполнение всех условий этого соглашения», — рассказал защитник. По его словам, суд, скорее всего, «пройдет в особом режиме — без исследования доказательств».

У нас опять стреляют…

…На улице…

PORTLAND, Ore. — A man was shot and killed in North Portland Monday and homicide detectives were leading the investigation.

Officers responded to a report of a shooting just after 2:30 p.m., at North Blandena Street and Commercial Avenue. They arrived to find a man suffering from at least one gunshot wound, according to the Portland Police Bureau.

The victim died at the scene. He was later identified as 29-year-old Marquis Delon Chaney.
Police said Chaney lived in the neighborhood. An autopsy was planned for Tuesday.

Investigators said “limited information” indicated that the suspect or suspects left the area after the shooting.

У нашего бывшего губернатора началась веселая жизнь…

За ним и за его партнершей по бизнесу внимательно наблюдают.

SALEM, Ore. (AP) – Workers at a Central Oregon landfill became suspicious when former Gov. John Kitzhaber and his fiancée, Cylvia Hayes, showed up to dump some trash last week.

The suspicious workers called authorities after the first couple paid a visit last week.

Timm Schimke of the Deschutes County solid waste department tells The Bulletin that sheriff’s deputies poked through the couple’s trash for about an hour. He says it appeared they dumped old campaign signs and a mattress or box spring.

О влиянии женщин на хозяев больших офисов, или… от плохого к худшему…

..Не успела в Орегоне отгреметь новость об отставке Губернатора, как всех потрясла новость о том, что Федеральные органы занялись вплотную нашим, теперь уже бывшим Губернатором и его бывшей невестой, а сейчас — женой.

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — The United States Department of Justice issued subpoenas Friday for records involving Governor Kitzhaber and First Lady Cylvia Hayes.

Subpoenas were also issued to approximately a dozen agencies – including the governor’s office and at least 14 other people, sources told KOIN 6 News.

The subpoenas seek information related to contracts and payments Hayes received over the past four years.

Sources who spoke under a promise of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak about the federal investigation told KOIN 6 News investigators believe Hayes received payments that she did not report to the state or on her taxes.

They are trying to determine if she did work for outside companies without reporting that she was doing work for those companies.

In addition to contracts, the feds are seeking email, phone logs, documents and visitors logs involving Hayes and nearly a dozen businesses and advocacy groups that Hayes had contact with, according to these sources.

Арестован голым…

Всегда знал, что в Портланде вообще, и в Орегоне, в частности, живут не очень… “нормальные” люди.

Вот, к примеру, я уже писал но, напомню, сериал “Grimm” снимается у нас здесь. не ошибаюсь, уже четвертый сезон.

Ну, и, вот еще..

Полиция арестовала грабителя, который влез в дом, там напился, разделся и решил принять ванну..

Таким его и взяла полиция.

KEIZER, Ore. – Police arrested a naked man who they said broke into two Keizer homes, drank a homeowner’s booze and took a hot tub early Sunday morning.

A woman who was house-sitting alone at a home on Lakefair Place North called 911 and told police she heard noises coming from the laundry room just before 5 a.m., according to Sgt. Jeffrey Goodman with Keizer police.

The woman said the door slammed shut when she approached the laundry room. She armed herself with a knife and waited for police.

“Кровь за кровь!..” — ©

После протестов в Нью-Йорке, которые были поддержаны Мэром Нью-Йорка, в этом городе начала литься кровь полицейских.

Двое полицейских были застрелены в автомобиле. Стрелявший покончил с собой.

Президент профсоюза полицейских Нью-Йорка сделал заявление о том, что в произошедшем есть вина и Мэра Де Блазио.

The president of the NYPD union slammed Mayor Bill de Blasio in reaction to the deaths of two officers who were ambushed and gunned down in their patrol car in broad daylight Saturday in Brooklyn.

“There’s blood on many hands tonight,” Patrolman’s Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch said late Saturday. “Those that incited violence on this street under the guise of protest, that tried to tear down what New York City police officers did everyday.

“We tried to warn it must not go on, it cannot be tolerated,” Lynch continued. “That blood on the hands starts on the steps of city hall in the office of the mayor.”

Also on Saturday evening, video obtained by the New York Post showed several officers turning their backs on the mayor as he made his way down a hallway at Woodhull Medical Center in Brooklyn, where Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu had earlier been pronounced dead.

Странное убийство…

Студент погиб, после того, как один очень добрый мужчина, ударил его ножом 11-ть раз..

Следователи в недоумении…

McMINNVILLE, Ore. — A team of 15 investigators is working to try and figure out what triggered the deadly confrontation between a man with a knife and a Linfield College student at a 7-Eleven store in McMinnville last weekend. But even the district attorney admits, many questions may never be answered.

“I’m not sure that we will ever have an explanation of how Parker Moore became the target of this stabbing and was killed. Why him? Why there? Why then? I don’t know that we will ever be able to answer those questions in a way that is at all satisfying,” Yamhill County District Attorney Brad Berry told KGW Tuesday.

Moore, 20, died from multiple stab wounds. His suspected attacker, Joventino Arenas, 33, was shot and killed by police after he returned to the scene later.

“This case is tragic not just on the Moore family end of it, it’s certainly tragic on their [Arenas’] family also,” Berry said. “There’s another loss of life here. I can assure you this investigation is being done methodically and completely.”

Никак не мог пропустить

Я думаю, этот пост видели многие, потому что у [info]Антона Носика оченнь много читателей.

Но я никак не мог этого пропустить.

Кто это делает? Уже не любители, как в 1980-х, а серьёзные уголовники, организованной группой лиц по предварительному сговору. Today it’s the organised criminal gangs, because they make money with these viruses, объяснил эксперт по компьютерной безопасности (06’00”). Им легко делать трояны потому, что в некоторых юрисдикциях подобная деятельность ненаказуема. We can’t globally police, говорит Хиппонен. Поэтому бандосы держат свою головку там, где их не привлекут.

Анализ исходного кода одного из троянов, заражающего компьютер жертвы под видом файла фотографии, выявил цифровую подпись o600ko78rus. Это, как нетрудно догадаться, питерский номерной знак. Такой знак установлен на мерседесе S600 (6 литров, 400 лошадей) питерского тинейджера, чей ник в ЖЖ — [info]sporaw. В его ЖЖ можно найти фотографии и этой машины, и её номерного знака.

Растем!

Собрался я сегодня в магазин, уже на выходе встречается мне соседка. Говорит, — не проийти там никуда и никак. Полиция оцепила все вокруг.

Решил сам проверить.

Оказалось, полиция, действительно оцепила, но не все, а только одну часть улицы. Посмотрел я на эти желтые ленты и… пересек улицу, пошел по другой стороне. Типа, тех “нормальных героев” из песни, которые — “всегда идут в обход”.

Однако, мне хочется подумать над тем, как легко мерзавцы добиваются своих целей…
