Nearly 200 animals rescued from Texas home, including rabbits, turkeys, exotic birds

Westlake Legal Group HOUSTON Nearly 200 animals rescued from Texas home, including rabbits, turkeys, exotic birds fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox news fnc/us fnc Bradford Betz article ade2d5ee-99ac-5711-bb4d-fba1dd152dbf

Nearly 200 animals living in what authorities described as “one of the most toxic environments” they’d ever encountered were rescued from a home in Texas Tuesday evening, according to reports.

Deputies responded to the home in the 2700 block of Leichester Drive in Spring, about 25 miles north of Houston.

The homeowners had called a chicken rescue group to remove some chickens from the property, KHOU reported. The group then alerted authorities after seeing the conditions of the home, according to the station.

Animal rescue officials with Montgomery County said chickens, roosters, rabbits, ducks, parakeets, potbelly pigs, cats and dogs were found living at the home – some in rooms covered in dirt, urine and feces. At least one animal, a bird, was found dead.

“We never imagined that we would fine nearly 80 hens and roosters living in small bedrooms,” Houston SPCA Chief Cruelty Investigator Adam Reynolds said. “The ammonia levels that we encountered inside the house rank as one of the most toxic environments that we have encountered.”

SPCA worked with Montgomery County Precinct 3 deputies into the night to remove animals from the home, the Houston Chronicle reported.

TRUMP SIGNS BILL MAKING ANIMAL CRUELTY A FEDERAL CRIME

Montgomery County Pct. 3 Captain Daniel Zientek said the homeowners surrendered all of the animals except for some 30 parrots because of sentinel attachment. A judge then signed a civil asset forfeiture warrant and the SPCA was called in.

The animals are currently in the care of Houston SPCA. The homeowners will be facing criminal charges determined by the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office.

2020 election: Lower-tier Democrats still fighting in the primaries

With the first presidential primary just weeks away, the list of Democratic candidates remains one of the most crowded in decades.

Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg have dominated the headlines, polling at or higher than 10 percent.

Here are some of the lower-tier candidates who are still in the race:

Michael Bennet

Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., is polling at 10th place, according to Politico. He threw his hat in the race in May 2019 and has since struggled to maintain the momentum of his rivals, trailing at 1 percent in the polls by some estimates.

The New York Times, in a Sunday editorial that endorsed Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren, gave Bennet only a passing mention.

John Delaney

John Delaney, unbeknownst to many, was the first to declare his candidacy for president back in July 2017 — just six months into President Trump’s tenure in the White House. An Axis report in July estimated that Delaney had spent nearly $19 million on his White House bid since declaring his candidacy more than two years ago.

Delaney grew up in a working-class family and went on to start two companies, becoming the youngest CEO in the history of the New York Stock Exchange. He has a net worth of more than $200 million and is mostly self-financing his campaign.

Deval Patrick

A latecomer into the 2020 race, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick announced his candidacy in November 2019. Patrick has shrugged off concerns of his late arrival, arguing that other candidates have been raising money for a long time without gaining in popularity.

A former official in the Clinton administration, Patrick has focused his campaign on early voting states, saying “as a practical matter, we’re going to try to spend a lot of time here in New Hampshire, and in South Carolina, but we will be active in Iowa and Nevada, as well.”

BIDEN CAMPAIGN TOUTS UKRAINIAN ANTI-CORRUPTION ACTIVIST WHO PREVIOUSLY CALLED HUNTER BIDEN’S ACTIONS ‘VERY BAD’

After Julian Castro and Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., withdrew from the race, Patrick remains the only candidate of color vying for the presidency. Before the seventh Democratic debate in Des Moines, Iowa, last week, he lamented that “America will not see herself in full.”

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, a combat veteran who served in Iraq and is a member of the Hawaii Army National Guard, is polling stronger in New Hampshire than other states and in national polls, but is still trailing behind several candidates.

A Real Clear Politics poll averages Gabbard at 3.5 percent in the polls out of New Hampshire.

New ISIS leader? What to know about the terror network’s hardline founding member

The Islamic State has named a new leader to replace Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who died in a U.S. Special Operations forces raid on a compound in northern Syria’s Idlib Province in October, intelligence sources say.

Amir Mohammed Abdul Rahman al-Mawli al-Salbi, is a founding member of ISIS, having led the enslavement of Iraq’s Yazidi minority and overseen major operations around the world, The Guardian reported.

This undated mugshot shows Amir Mohammed Abdul Rahman al-Mawli al-Salbi, likely taken while he was detained by U.S. forces in southern Iraq’s Camp Bucca prison, Iraq.

Salbi is of Turkish descent but was born in the Iraqi town of Tal Afar, making him one of the few non-Arab leaders in the terrorist group. He is also believed to have at least one son.

He holds a degree in sharia law from the University of Mosul. His status as an Islamic scholar allowed him to rise through the ranks and sanction genocide against the Yazidis.

In 2004, he met Baghdadi while detained by U.S. forces at Camp Bucca in Southern Iraqi. He confirmed as the new leader within hours of Baghdadi’s death in October.

Before the U.S.-led raid, the State Department had placed a $5 million bounty on Salbi, as well as two other leading members of the terrorist group.

ISIS PANEL IN SYRIA ACTS AS ‘JUDGE, JURY AND EXECUTIONER,’ REPORT FINDS

Since Baghdadi’s death, Salbi is understood by western and regional intelligence services to be reconsolidating ISIS while drawing upon a younger generation of militants.

But Salbi’s exact whereabouts remain unknown. Intelligence officials cited by The Guardian, say it is unlikely he would be hiding in the Idlib province where Baghdadi was killed.

The hunt has extended to Turkey, where Salbi is believed to have maintained connections with his brother, Adel Salbi, a representative in a political party called the Turkmen Iraqi Front.

Hawaii man who allegedly shot, killed 2 officers had history of disputes with law

A Hawaii man who is suspected of stabbing a landlord before fatally shooting two police officers at a Honolulu home on Sunday had a history of run-ins with police and issues with his neighbor, according to his lawyer.

Jarovlav Hanel, a native of the Czech Republic, faced eviction because the landlord wanted to move into the home where he had stayed for free in return for maintenance work, said his lawyer, Jonathan Burge.

Police said Hanel stabbed Lois Cain, the landlord who had filed court documents last week to evict him. After the stabbing, two Honolulu police officers were fatally shot, and the home and neighboring structures later burst into flames.

Local media have not confirmed, but Hanel and two other unidentified women are presumed dead inside the destroyed home.

Burge said he knew Hanel had some mental health issues but had never known him to be violent.

“He thought the government was watching him all the time and tapping his phone, stuff like that,” Burge said.

Several years ago, a neighbor accused Hanel of shoving him. Hanel was acquitted of assault after a trial.

Police responding Sunday morning to a call for help at the location found Cain stabbed in the leg. Hanel then opened fire, killing Officers Tiffany Enriquez and Kaulike Kalama, Honolulu Police Chief Susan Ballard said.

POLICE SAY 2 DEAD, POSSIBLY 15 INJURED IN KANSAS CITY BAR SHOOTING

The fire, just a few blocks from oceanfront high-rise buildings, spread quickly, destroying seven homes and leaving others with fire or smoke damage.

Burge has represented Hanel since 2015 in various disputes with neighbors, including temporary restraining orders that three obtained against him. Hanel was facing a hearing next week on a charge of misusing 911 services, Burge said.

Cain was supportive of him in his disputes with neighbors, but she wanted him to move out so she could move into the home, Burge said. Their relationship had also soured because Hanel’s dog had died and Cain wouldn’t let him get a new one.

Burge said Hanel planned to go trial for the misusing 911 charge.

“He thought he saw someone selling drugs nearby [and] called the police. They determined it wasn’t happening,” Burge said. “He didn’t like their determination. He kept calling them until they told him stop” and cited him.

Russian police spied on opposition activist in her bedroom, family says

The family of a Russian opposition activist claim police officers installed surveillance equipment in her bedroom and spied on her for months before she was arrested last year.

Anastasia Shevchenko, 40, was arrested in January 2019 under a law against so-called “undesirable organizations,” The Telegraph reported.

The 2015 law reportedly allows Russia to declare an organization “undesirable” if it “presents a threat to Russia’s constitutional order, its defense and its security.”

Shevchenko had been working with a group founded by Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a former oligarch and critic of the Kremlin. Her criminal charges stem from organizing a lecture and taking part in a rally.

RUSSIAN AUTHORITIES RAID OFFICE OF OPPOSITION LEADER ALEXEI NAVALNY

Shevchenko’s lawyer Sergei Badamshin alleges that authorities entered her apartment, installed surveillance equipment, and took it back five months later – all without her knowing.

“They left no trace,” Badamshin said.

Shevchenko has been under house arrest for a year. Her family told The Telegraph last weekend that investigators in Rostov-on-Don, a city in southern Russia, uncovered footage earlier this month, supposedly showing Shevchenko in her bedroom.

Prosecutors in Rostov-on-Don extended Shevchenko’s house arrest through March, The Telegraph reported. She faces up to six months in prison if convicted.

Mississippi ex-correctional officer who kicked, punched, stomped on inmate gets prison time

A former Mississippi corrections officer who kicked, punched, and stomped on an inmate was sentenced Friday to nearly 6 years in prison.

Shelly Griffith, 29, who worked with the Mississippi Department of Corrections (MDOC), pleaded guilty in December 2017 to violating the civil rights of an inmate Leon Hayes, by using excessive force against him, according to a news release from the Justice Department.

Investigators said Griffith physically assaulted Hayes with a dangerous weapon on May 25, 2016. At the time, she was working as an officer at the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility (CMCF) in Rankin County, Mississippi.

“This type of behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated by the Department of Justice,” Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband said. “The Civil Rights Division is committed to prosecuting those who violate the civil rights of others.”

Special Agent in Charge Michelle A. Sutphin of the FBI’s Jackson Division said violating a person’s civil rights “damages the already delicate relationship between correction officers and inmates.”

MISSISSIPPI INMATE WHO ESCAPED TROUBLED PRISON IS CAPTURED IN TENNESSEE

Two other MDOC officers – Reginald Brown and Sharalyn McClain – also pleaded guilty to civil rights violations based on their involvement in the assault of Hayes.

Brown has been sentenced to 60 months in prison, while McClain will be sentenced on March 2020, the DOJ said.

Griffith’s sentencing came amid a statewide lockdown of Mississippi prisons after weeks of violence and unrest.

Earlier this month, two inmates escaped from a facility, while at least five inmates have died in prison riots.

Trump immigration policies showing results, with illegal border crossings plummeting

Illegal crossings at the U.S.-Mexico border plummeted after the Trump administration required asylum seekers to wait in Mexico for court hearings in the U.S., according to a report.

When the policy took effect in the Border Patrol’s Yuma sector in May, arrests hit 14,000. By October, they had fallen 94 percent, or around 800, and have stayed there since, making Yuma the second slowest of the agency’s nine sectors on the U.S.-Mexico border, according to statistics cited by The Associated Press.

There have been several reasons for the recent drop. Anthony Porvaznik, chief of the Border Patrol’s Yuma sector, said the so-called Migration Protection Protocols have been a huge deterrent, based on agents’ interviews with people arrested.

“Their whole goal was to be released into the United States, and once that was taken off the shelf for them, and they couldn’t be released into the United States anymore, then that really diminished the amount of traffic that came through here,” Porvaznik said.

In the neighboring Tucson sector, arrests rose each month from August to December, bucking a border-wide trend and making it the second-busiest corridor after Texas’ Rio Grande Valley. Porvaznik attributed Tucson’s spike to the policy’s late implementation.

Over 55,000 asylum-seekers were returned to Mexico to wait for hearings through November, 10 months after the policy first took effect in San Diego.

The immigrants were from more than three dozen countries, but nearly two out of three were Guatemalan or Honduran, according to Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.

Critics have said the policy was unfair and exposed asylum-seekers to extreme violence in Mexican border cities, where attorneys could be difficult to find.

The American Civil Liberties Union and other groups asked to put the policy on hold during a legal challenge. The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals heard arguments Oct. 1 and has not indicated when it may decide.

ICE SUBPOENAS NY FOR INFO ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT ACCUSED OF MURDER, AS SANCTUARY CITY FIGHT ESCALATES

This past Tuesday, critics won a separate lawsuit when a federal judge in San Diego said asylum-seekers being returned to Mexico from California deserved access to hired attorneys before and during key interviews to determine if they could stay in the U.S. while their cases proceeded.

In Yuma, asylum-seekers have been held in short-term cells until space opened up to be returned to Mexicali through a neighboring California sector.

While illegal crossings have dropped in Yuma, asylum-seekers still have signed up on a waiting list to enter the U.S. at an official crossing in San Luis, Arizona.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has called the Mexican shelter managing the list to say how many asylum claims it would process each day. The shelter estimated the wait at three to four months.

5 Pakistani businessmen indicted over alleged scheme to export US goods for nuclear weapons program

Five Pakistani businessmen were indicted in federal court Wednesday for their alleged roles in smuggling U.S.-origin supplies into Pakistan to support the country’s nuclear program.

Between September 2014 and October 2019, the group is said to have operated an international network of front companies that existed to acquire goods for a Pakistani group called the Advanced Engineering Research Organization and the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission, according to a federal grand jury indictment.

The goods were exported from the United States without export licenses, in violation of federal law, the indictment said. Both organizations were on a Commerce Department list that imposes export license requirements for groups whose activities are found to be contrary to U.S. security or foreign policy interests.

The men — from Pakistan, Canada, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom — are accused of attempting to conceal the true destinations of the goods by using the front companies as the supposed purchasers and end-users of them, and as the apparent source of payments. Several were listed as being in New Hampshire.

“The defendants smuggled U.S. origin goods to entities that have been designated for years as threats to U.S. national security for their ties to Pakistan’s weapons programs,” Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers said.

“This indictment puts the world on notice not to do business with these defendants and demonstrates our commitment to holding them accountable,” he added. “It also stands as an example of the kind of deceptive behavior U.S. businesses need to watch out for in designing appropriate export control and sanctions compliance programs.”
