White supremacist gang leader dies in Nevada state prison

The former leader of a white supremacist gang who was sentenced to 66 years in Nevada prison for multiple crimes, including attempting to murder a fellow inmate, died about two weeks ago after being incarcerated for more than two decades, officials said.

NBC NEWS CONTRIBUTOR RAISES SUSPICIONS OVER TRUMP’S ORDER TO FLY US FLAGS HALF-STAFF UNTIL AUG. 8

James Wallis, 58, died July 31 at Centennial Hills Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada Department of Correction announced Tuesday. His cause of death has yet to be released pending the results of an autopsy report.

James Wallis, a convicted leader of the Aryan Leaders prison gang, died July 31, officials said.

Wallis started serving his sentence in 1995 after he was convicted in Clark County of attempted murder and other charges. He later became the leading member of the Aryan Warriors, a white-supremacist gang based in the Nevada prison system.

He was one of five reputed members of the Aryan Warriors convicted in 2009 of conspiring to engage in racketeering inside and outside of prison and participating in the earlier stabbing of a fellow gang member at the North Las Vegas jail.

Confirmation of his death was delayed until his family could be located. Members of the Aryan Warriors dawn distinct tattoos with Viking-related imagery, such as horned helmets, axes or shields, according to the Anti-Defamation League. Some of the shields include runic letters of an A or a W.

Madagascar finds body believed to be Cambridge student who fell to death from plane

Police in Madagascar said on Tuesday that they believe they found the body of a 19-year-old Cambridge student who fell to her death last month from a small plane over the island, according to reports.

Alana Cutland was leaving the country where she had been studying a rare species of crabs when she fell from a Cessna light aircraft, The Guardian reported.

CAMBRIDGE STUDENT, 19, JUMPS TO DEATH FROM PLANE: REPORT

Police in the country are investigating whether the student deliberately jumped out of the plane to her death.

The Sun reported Cutland broke open the plane’s door as managed to jump out as the only other passenger and the pilot struggled to keep her inside.

“They have found a human body north of the site where she fell,” the local police chief told The Sun, according to The Guardian.

Police had feared they would never find the girl’s body because of the remoteness of the savannah where she fell.

The pilot said Cutland had a headache before the flight and stayed silent until the incident.

Police are also investigating if Cutland had a bad reaction to medication she was taking, The Guardian reported. They said the body will be flown back to Antananarivo, Madagascar’s capital, and will undergo toxicology tests.

Alabama woman severely burned alleged burglar’s face by throwing pot of hot grease on him: report

An Alabama woman burned a man’s face with a pot of hot grease when he allegedly broke into her home last Thursday and pulled a gun on her, police said.

MISSING ALABAMA WOMAN FOUND MURDERED, BURIED IN WELL; 2 ARRESTED

Officers said they responded to a domestic violence call to find Larondrick Macklin, 31, suffering from burns across his face. An investigation determined Macklin was the “primary aggressor in the altercation” and the woman acted in self-defense, police said.

Monica Lewinsky produced season of ‘American Crime Story’ about Clinton sex scandal set to air before 2020 election

Monica Lewinksy produced the third season of “American Crime Story” centered on the scandals leading up to former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment hearings in the 90s and is set to air in the final weeks of the 2020 presidential election.

FX announced Tuesday that the third season of the Emmy-nominated series will focus on Bill Clinton’s impeachment, the Hollywood Reporter reported.

MONICA LEWINSKY DETAILS BILL CLINTON AFFAIR, TERRIFYING MEETING WITH INVESTIGATORS IN NEW DOC

Lewinsky infamously had an affair with Clinton while she was a White House intern. She will be played by actress Beanie Feldstein, the younger sister of Jonah Hill known for her parts in “Lady Bird” and “Booksmart.”

FX chairman John Landgraf responded at a Television Critics Association summer press tour conference Tuesday to questions over whether the timing of the third season’s release could potentially affect the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, the Washington Examiner reported.

“People are going to be very interested in this right around the presidential election and it’s going to be a great show,” Landgraf said. Some online critics pressed the network to reconsider its timing.

“Airing this during the final six weeks of the 2020 election is an abysmal idea. I’m looking forward to seeing it, and I hope FX reconsiders the timing,” New York Magazine writer Mark Harris said on Twitter. “There is nothing that Trump would like more than to turn the homestretch of 2020 into a revisitation of the Clintons. Don’t do this, @FXNetworks. It’s a disservice to our fragile political system and to the talented people involved in this show.”

The first season covered the Los Angeles trial of former NFL player OJ Simpson after the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. Both seasons received more than a dozen Emmy nominations each, the Washington Examiner reported.

Sarah Paulson, who played prosecutor Marcia Clark in the OJ season of American Crime Story, will return in the third season tentatively titled “Impeachment: American Crime Story” as Linda Tripp, the former Pentagon employee who secretly recorded Lewinsky speaking about her sexual relationship with Clinton.

Driver who killed 5 in crash had ‘second largest level’ of marijuana seen by medical examiner in living specimen: report

The Bloods gang member who killed five when he slammed into a family’s car on a New York highway last year had the second-highest level of marijuana one medical examiner ever witnessed in a living specimen, prosecutors said at his sentencing on Tuesday.

DRIVER ARRESTED IN STOLEN VEHICLE CRASH THAT KILLED 5

Jamel Turner was sentenced to 27 years in jail for vehicular manslaughter and several other charges linked to the Valentine’s Day 2018 crash on Long Island when he rear-ended a car on the highway while traveling 154 miles per hour, the New York Times reported. All of the victims burned alive, prosecutors said.

Turner was driving four times the legal 40 mph speed limit or approximately “the speed at which jetliners take off,” Suffolk district attorney, Timothy Sini, said at the sentencing hearing. The medical examiner said Turner had the “the second-highest level of marijuana that they’ve ever seen in a living specimen” at the time of the crash, Sini added.

Turner, who was driving a stolen Chevy Camaro, plowed into the McCoy family’s Mazda, which then hit another car and careened into an oil truck until catching fire. All four passengers in the Mazda were burned alive.

Turner’s friend and dog were also killed when they were thrown from the Camaro. The driver of the oil truck suffered severe injuries to his neck and spine. Turner, who is a convicted drug dealer with a lengthy record, pleaded guilty to the charges against him connected to the crash earlier this year.

Before the sentencing hearing Tuesday, he refused to leave his jail cell and wanted to withdraw his guilty plea. Justice Fernando Camacho denied the request and threatened Turner could lose his plea deal and face life in prison if he did not show in court.

Once in court, Turner issued a brief apology to the relatives of the deceased to which Camacho reiterated that he had “wiped out an entire family” who was “burned alive,” the New York Times reported.

Samantha Nerove: Why so many mass murders? Study impact of violent video games and impose age restrictions

Westlake Legal Group 854081161001_5232657874001_5232563045001-vs Samantha Nerove: Why so many mass murders? Study impact of violent video games and impose age restrictions Samantha Nerove fox-news/us/crime/mass-murder fox-news/tech/topics/video-games fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc c58d0747-3094-5f53-a245-1bcee794711d article

War is ugly and a nightmare to experience – neither glamorous nor enjoyable. It’s nothing like the violent video games that allow players to happily “kill” animated figures from the safety of their bedrooms.

As a combat veteran of two wars, I’ve seen the terrible human cost of violence close up – badly wounded fellow soldiers, others killed in the prime of life, enemy combatants burned beyond recognition. Destroyed homes, businesses and schools.

Now violent video games are in the news as a possible contributing factor to mass murders here in the U.S., following the horrific weekend massacres in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio that claimed the lives of 31 people.

JOE BIDEN SAYS VIDEO GAMES MAY PLAY ROLE IN GUN VIOLENCE

Americans are understandably wondering what can be done to reduce the gun violence that takes such a terrible toll in our nation.

The weekend’s mass shootings – following many others over the years – have triggered another round of calls to bans certain types of firearms. But the problem isn’t the gun; the gun is an inanimate object.

More from Opinion

The problem is the person who pulls the trigger on the gun and shoots innocent victims. What makes some people pull the trigger?

One factor that deserves closer examination is violent video games and their effect in desensitizing some young men so that they move from shooting figures on a screen to shooting flesh-and-blood men, women and children.

Millions of Americans play video games. The vast majority don’t turn to real-world violence. But regrettably, some do.

The massive growth of first-person shooter games that give a visceral, virtual-reality view of carnage sends a message to gamers that killing is OK, cool and the right thing to do.

Nearly all American gun owners use guns safely and properly – for hunting, at shooting ranges, or for personal protection if faced with a deadly threat.

What drives a very small number to use their weapons to attack others? There are many factors. But it’s time to look at the effects of glamorized violence, especially in first-person shooter video games that enable the player to experience the action through the eyes of a gun-toting “good guy” who kills “bad guys” in violent confrontations.

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR OPINION NEWSLETTER

The shooter games are immersive and personal. They allow players to look down the barrel of a gun and blow people into a bloody mist, for example.

These video games have grown in popularity and technical sophistication, with some using 3D graphics, desensitizing players to the horror of killing another person.

A study by the American Psychological Association shows ties between these games and aggressive behavior, although not specifically with any mass shootings.

Violent video games are just one way our society glamorizes violence and killing through movies, TV, music and other forms of entertainment. We need to take a hard look at why we do this, and to decide if measures should be taken to promote more positive behavior.

The study concludes: “The research demonstrates a consistent relation between violent video game use and increases in aggressive behavior, aggressive cognitions and aggressive affect, and decreases in pro-social behavior, empathy and sensitivity to aggression.”

These video games follow the same concepts that have made the field of advertising an effective multibillion-dollar industry. Advertising is designed to get you to do, think or buy something.

A first-person shooter video game has a large array of the elements that someone planning an advertising campaign would love to have presented to an impressionable person. How could these games not have an effect?
Some of the techniques used by the first-person video games are:

Use of repetition. If you show or tell people the same thing enough times, you can change their perception and sometimes change their behavior. Someone playing a first-person shooter kills “bad guys” over and over again. This leads to two major messages being ingrained: that the player can decide who the “bad guys” are, and that killing them is the proper response.

Association with positive role models. Many of the first-person shooter video games allow the player to pretend to be a member of the U.S. military – an extremely positive brand. Others allow the player to be an anti-hero or even a criminal, as Grand Theft Auto does. These anti-heroes become positive role models, because the game portrays them as such. So whether it’s a hero or anti-hero, the message is that “killers are cool.”

Appeal to emotion. The player in a first-person shooter video game is on a mission. It may be a good one – like saving innocents or winning a military battle. Or it may be a bad one, like being a great car thief or other type of powerful criminal. Either way, players are given the impression that they are the one who can make a difference and that they must not fail because they hold the fate of many in their hands.

A minority of video game players lack the emotional filters to separate game fantasy from their own tortured reality.

For those who discount this idea, explain to me what other factor has changed so dramatically in the past few decades to desensitize young people to committing acts of horrendous violence.

Creating a minimum age of 18 for people to play first-person shooter games, with an unlock function tied to a driver’s license or state ID, is one safety measure worth considering.

Another good idea would be for the federal government to fund a scientific study of how big an impact these games have on players. That could help lawmakers decide if some controls are needed on these games in addition to age limits.

Violent video games are just one way our society glamorizes violence and killing through movies, TV, music and other forms of entertainment. We need to take a hard look at why we do this, and to decide if measures should be taken to promote more positive behavior.

People were killing other people long before video games were created. But if these games are indeed causing some people to take violence from virtual reality to the real world, we need to determine if some reasonable limits can be placed on the games and who plays them, in order to save lives.

And as parents of children who grow up playing video games, we all need to ask ourselves: Is this glorification of death and destruction really what we want to expose our children to in their formative years?

Motorcycle backfiring causes panic in Times Square, cops say

NEW YORK CITY — The New York Police Department says the loud noise of a motorcycle backfiring caused a panic and sent people scrambling in Times Square.

The department tweeted Tuesday evening, “There is no #ActiveShooter in #TimesSquare. Motorcycles backfiring while passing through sounded like gun shots.” The tweet also says the department received multiple 911 calls and urged the public to not panic saying “The Times Square area is very safe!”

The Midtown Manhattan neighborhood is a major tourist destination and entertainment center.

PIX11 reports that some people on Twitter thought the noise was an explosion and that many people ran into buildings and stores.

The scare comes after 31 people were killed in two mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, in less than 24 hours over the weekend.

Mariah Carey calls Hillary Clinton ‘president’ in photo op

Mariah Carey appeared to snub President Trump after she posted a picture online with Hillary Clinton and referred to the former secretary of state as “president.”

Carey, 49, shared the photo after meeting the former Democratic presidential nominee, and former President Bill Clinton, backstage at a Barbara Streisand concert Saturday night in New York City.

“An honor to meet President Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton! Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do for our country,” the Grammy-winning singer tweeted Monday.

Carey’s tweet caused chatter as many online picked up on the apparent intentional usage of the title.

On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton responded to the pop star’s post tweeting, “The honor is ours; it’s not every day you meet a queen.”

MARIAH CAREY OPENS UP ABOUT HER FIRST MARRIAGE: ‘IT WAS ALMOST LIKE BEING A PRISONER’

Carey’s seemingly overt political statement ran in contrast to comments she’s made in the past.

When asked during a 2016 interview whether she supported Clinton or Trump, Carey explained that she did not want to be “vocal” about her political views. She did, however, acknowledge her use of a Hillary Clinton picture as her avatar online.

“It’s so hard because I’m just an entertainer,” Carey told TV host Andy Cohen at the time. “I’m not a political analyst. So I don’t want to be vocal about my true feelings about all of this, but I have them.”
