Driver in deadly 1981 Brink’s heist freed from prison

Judith Clark, who entered prison as a left-wing revolutionary defiantly refusing to participate in her own murder trial, walked free on Friday as a 69-year-old woman acclaimed for her work behind bars with service dogs, AIDS patients and inmates with babies.

Clark made her initial report to her parole officer after leaving prison, state corrections spokesman Thomas Mailey said.

Clark will live in Manhattan. She will “be closely supervised to ensure her full compliance with all of the conditions of her parole,” Mailey said.

Clark, sentenced to 75-years-to-life for her role as getaway driver in a deadly 1981 Brink’s heist in suburban New York, became eligible for parole after Gov. Andrew Cuomo granted her clemency in 2016. The Democrat praised her as a model prisoner. Supporters said she embodied the prison system’s ideals as an institution of rehabilitation rather than retribution.

But some law enforcement officials, politicians and families of victims opposed her release. The $1.6 million armored truck robbery led to the shooting deaths of Brink’s guard Peter Paige and Nyack police officers Edward O’Grady and Waverly Brown.

In a 2-1 decision on April 17 granting her release, the parole board noted that Clark’s original life sentence was ordered in part because of her “unrepentant behavior and refusal of counsel.” The board said she had since disavowed her anarchist political views and apologized to the community and her victims.

The board listed Clark’s numerous achievements in prison, including earning a master’s degree, training service dogs for veterans and law enforcement, founding an AIDS education program, securing a college program for inmates and working in a prison nursery mentoring new mothers.

The dissenting board member cited the violence of the crime, the impact on the families of the slain officers and guard and Clark’s involvement in the revolutionary May 19th Communist Organization that was founded by members of the Weather Underground and Black Liberation Army in the late 70s. In addition to the Brink’s robbery, May 19th committed a series of bombings at government and military buildings.

Her lawyers said Clark will live with a friend in New York City and work for Hour Children, an organization that helps incarcerated women and their children rejoin the community.

What remained of a gas station in Virginia smoldered on Friday following an earlier blast that sent multiple people to the hospital.

Responders arrived at the scene in Buena Vista, Va., due to an explosion that went off around 9:50 a.m., WSET reported, citing police. A fire ensued but has since reportedly been put out.

Authorities are probing what may have triggered the explosion “and at this time it does not appear suspicious in nature,” Virginia State Police Sgt. Rick Garletts said in a statement obtained by ABC News.

Four adults were transported to one hospital following the incident, while another individual is thought to have been brought to a different facility, state police said, according to WSET.

Video from the scene captured fire officials working amid the rubble of what remained from the gas station, as well as charred vehicles.

Authorities “are working to account for all the individuals that may have been located in the building at the time of the explosion,” Garletts said, according to ABC News.

A 12-year-old reporter who runs a newspaper in Pennsylvania has delivered the commencement address at West Virginia University’s Reed College of Media.

Hilde Kate Lysiak has run the Orange Street News in since 2014 in Selinsgrove, 150 miles northwest of Philadelphia.

She first drew national attention in 2016 when she wrote about a suspected murder in Selinsgrove and ended up having to defend herself after some locals lashed out about a young girl covering violent crimes.

She had a confrontation in February with an Arizona marshal who threatened to arrest her for filming him on duty.

On Friday, Hilde joked that she’s sure some in the crowd in Morgantown were wondering why the university couldn’t “afford a full grown human” to give the speech.

She went on to share the lessons she’s learned in the field and tells graduates to “stay laser focused on the truth.”

Farrakhan delivers insult while denying he’s anti-Semitic

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Farrakhan delivers insult while denying he's anti-Semitic HERBERT G. McCANN fox-news/us/religion/islam fox-news/us/religion/christianity fnc/us fnc f957d566-29f9-5b9d-9045-6935cfcd04e1 Associated Press article

Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan referenced “Satanic Jews” in a speech denying allegations of anti-Semitism, misogyny and homophobia after Facebook banned him from the social media platform.

During the speech Thursday at a Roman Catholic church on Chicago’s South Side, Farrakhan asserted people shouldn’t be angry with him if “I stand on God’s word,” also saying that he knows “the truth,” and “separate the good Jews from the Satanic Jews.”

Farrakhan was invited to speak at the church by the Rev. Michael Pfleger after Facebook banned Farrakhan, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and conservative personality Milo Yiannopoulos, saying they violated its ban on “dangerous individuals.”

Farrakhan, who turns 86 this weekend, said those who think he is a hater don’t know him and have never had a conversation with him. He added those who hated him before and got to know him came to love him. He went on to say Facebook’s contention that he is dangerous is true because what he says can be researched by his listeners.

“Social media you met me tonight. I plead with the rulers, let the truth be taught,” he said.

The Archdiocese of Chicago distanced itself from Pfleger’s decision to invite Farrakhan to St. Sabina Catholic Church, saying Pfleger did not consult with Cardinal Blase Cupich or other diocese officials before extending the invitation.

“There is no place in American life for discriminatory rhetoric of any kind,” the archdiocese said in a statement. “At a time when hate crimes are on the rise, when religious believers are murdered in their places of worship, we cannot countenance any speech that dehumanizes persons on the basis of ethnicity, religious belief, economic status or country of origin.”

Farrakhan noted Cupich’s predecessor, Cardinal Francis George, visited him in his home and had dinner with him, and he met with Chicago Cardinal Joseph Bernardin.

“For those angry about me about coming to St. Sabina, how many would be angry with me meeting with Cardinal George and with the previous cardinal,” he said. “That kind of hatred is insanity.”

Pfleger, one of Chicago’s most prominent activists, defended his invitation, saying he was responding to the Facebook ban as a defender of free speech.

Hours before Farrakhan was scheduled to speak, officials of the Illinois Holocaust Museum spoke out against Pfleger for “giving hatred a platform.”

Museum president and Holocaust survivor Fritzie Fritzshall said when community leaders like Pfleger provide a platform for bigotry and anti-Semitism, “it increases the threat against all of humanity.”

Critics point to Farrakhan’s characterization of Judaism as a “gutter religion’ as evidence of anti-Semitism. And perhaps, most famously, in the 1980s, he came under intense criticism for what was seen as praise for Adolf Hitler. Widely quoted for calling Hitler a “great man,” Farrakhan said the reports weren’t accurate, and that he’d actually called the Nazi leader “wickedly great.”

His allegedly anti-Semitic, anti-white and anti-gay comments have prompted the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center to label him an extremist.

Facebook, which did not detail specific comments that led to the ban of Farrakhan and the others, says it has always banned people or groups that proclaim a violent or hateful mission or are engaged in acts of hate or violence, regardless of political ideology.

Teen with knife apologizes after being shot by police

Body camera footage that was released Thursday by California’s Oxnard Police Department showed a 17-year-old girl apologizing to an officer after she ran at him with a large knife.

Chief Scott Whitney described the confrontation on Friday, May 3, in an edited video package that was posted online by the department. The teenager’s face was blurred in the video due to her age.

Officers had received multiple calls regarding a woman with a 12-inch knife who “seemed disturbed,” Whitney said.

Officer Timothy Roberts’ body camera showed him telling the girl to not to reach for the weapon and to sit on the curb. Roberts was the first to arrive at the scene. When told not to reach for the knife, the teenager asked what would happen if she did.

“Then something bad is going to happen,” Roberts said.

“Drop it,” the officer could be heard saying.

“No,” she replied.

“Come on shoot me,” she continued. “I’ve been waiting all day.”

The officer continued to move away from her while commanding her to drop the knife. The teenager refused to drop the knife and continued to walk toward him.

When she suddenly began running at Roberts with the knife in her right hand, he shot her multiple times and she collapsed.

Following the shooting, the officer was able to get the knife away.

“I’m so sorry,” the teenager said while writhing on the pavement.

“It’s OK,” an officer is heard saying.

The officer was seen giving her medical aid as they waited for an ambulance.

The girl remained hospitalized Thursday in critical but stable condition, officials said. The investigation was ongoing and Roberts was placed on administrative leave, in accordance with police policy. The second officer arrived moments before the shooting and was preparing to use a beanbag weapon to try to subdue the girl, according to a police statement.

Pennsylvania college to no longer allow frats, sororities

Fraternities and sororities will no longer be allowed at Swarthmore College.

School President Valerie Smith made the announcement Friday.

It comes after the only two fraternities at the private liberal arts college in suburban Philadelphia decided to disband amid outrage over internal documents from one of the organizations. They contained derogatory comments about women and the LGBTQ community and jokes about sexual assault. Two campus publications released the Phi Psi documents from 2012 to 2016 and said were anonymously leaked.

In the wake of the documents’ release, dozens of students occupied the on-campus Phi Psi house and called for both fraternities to be shut down.

Smith say the school’s lone sorority can continue with its current members through the spring 2022 semester but can’t recruit or initiate new members.

Authorities: Teen mauled to death by dogs he often cared for

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Authorities: Teen mauled to death by dogs he often cared for fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc DIGHTON, Mass. Associated Press article 9a173714-649d-50e2-aaae-50144703e123

A 14-year-old Massachusetts boy was mauled to death by dogs that he regularly cared for, a prosecutor said Friday.

The teenager killed Thursday night at a property in Dighton was identified by Bristol District Attorney Thomas Quinn III at a news conference as Ryan Hazel, of the neighboring town of Rehoboth.

The owner of the property, who was not home at the time, is cooperating with investigators but no foul play is suspected, Quinn said.

Dighton Police Chief Robert MacDonald appeared to be visibly shaken.

“Things like that should never happen to anybody, let alone a 14-year-old boy,” he said.

Ryan was brought to the home by his grandmother at about 6 p.m. Thursday, Quinn said.

She waited in the car because he usually took no more than 45 minutes to complete his tasks. She became worried when he took longer than normal, so she called his parents, who called a neighbor.

The neighbor went to the property, found the boy and called 911 at about 8 p.m.

Ryan had “traumatic injuries to various areas of his body,” and was pronounced dead at the scene, Quinn said.

Police found four dogs running free on the property and seven in kennels. The four that were free were Dutch shepherds and Belgian malinois.

Animal control took custody of all 11, at least one which acted aggressively, Quinn said.

There had been no prior complaints to police about dogs at the property, MacDonald said.

Ryan was a student at Bristol-Plymouth Regional Technical School in Taunton, according to a statement from Superintendent Alexandre Magalhaes.

“We are saddened by this loss in our school community, and as we come together, our leadership team will make every effort to provide assistance to our students, families and fellow employees as needed,” he said.

The towns are about 35 miles (56 kilometers) southwest of Boston.

A man accused of stabbing his wife to death in their Massachusetts apartment could face deportation after an immigration detainer was placed on him.

Ilton Rodrigues, a 48-year-old citizen of Brazil, is accused of brutally stabbing his wife, Telma Bras, 43, inside their Stoughton apartment on Friday in front of their two children.

He pleaded not guilty to a charge of murder Monday during an arraignment from a Boston-area hospital, where he has been after attempting to take his own life after the alleged killing, Boston 25 reported.

A top U.S. Border Patrol official tells Fox News that the immigration situation unfolding in America is “no longer constrained to the border” – forcing other officers to be pulled away from their duties to deal a crisis that is “beyond the breaking point.”

Chief Rodney Scott of the agency’s San Diego sector made the comments on “Fox & Friends” Friday while noting that agents have arrested more than a half a million people at the U.S.-Mexico border so far this year.

“We have had to pull multiple CBP officers away from other duties, which means trade and travel are getting slowed down, it means international flights are going to be slowed down,” he said. “We have pulled in several hundred people across DHS that are literally administrative employees to help feed and care for these people.”

“But we are beyond a breaking point,” Scott added. “And without action from Congress to create a consequence to illegal entry we can’t arrest our way out of this problem.”

Scott also said the number of people that are getting arrested at the border appears to be increasing every day.

“We’ve actually topped over half a million arrests… that’s only in the first several months of this year,” he told ‘Fox & Friends’. “We haven’t seen those types of numbers since 2009 and those were for the entire year, not for just half the year.”

To fix the situation, Scott says “we need to detain people in custody until they get their hearing” while also sending more judges down to the border and “expedite the immigration review process.”

Fox anchor Maria Bartiromo believes America only have one choice when it comes to trade with China.

During an appearance on “America’s Newsroom” Friday, Bartiromo said, “I don’t think the U.S. has any choice but to get tough” as the Trump administration moved ahead with increased tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods.

The move came after a round of trade talks between the U.S. and China on Thursday failed to produce an agreement.

The new tariffs raised the import taxes of those goods from 10 percent to 25 percent at 12:01 a.m. Friday as talks were set to continue Friday.

US TO SLAP TARIFFS ON $200B IN CHINESE GOODS, WH SAYS, BUT TRADE TALKS TO RESUME FRIDAY

“I think it was pretty extraordinary that the Chinese backtracked on all of the things that the two had agreed upon within these last 10 rounds of trade talks,” Bartiromo said on Friday.

She added, “The big ticket items are forced transfer of technology, stealing intellectual property which has cost our companies, American companies, tens of billions of dollars. The Chinese are reluctant to make it a law, change their laws to say no stealing of IP, change their laws to say no forced transfer of technology. So look, the U.S. — I don’t think the U.S. has any choice but to get tough.”

The two world’s largest economies were nearing a trade deal to open up the Chinese market to American companies, but negotiations fell apart when China called for changes to the text that served as a blueprint for a pact, the New York Times reported. U.S. negotiators have also accused China of reneging on its commitments.

Trump responded in a Sunday tweet by threatening to raise existing tariffs to 25 percent and impose new ones on billions of dollars in Chines imported goods.

“These are really important issues. The president has been very clear we’re not going to take it anymore. And so if it’s not the deal that he’s talking about, then I can’t see him going through with it,” Bartiromo said.

PRESIDENT TRUMP THINKS CHINA IS GETTING ‘COLD FEET’ ON TRADE PROMISES: SEN. JOHN THUNE

The bulk of goods facing increase tariffs are items such as circuit boards, vehicle parts and machinery, according to the Wall Street Journal. The proposed tariffs on the reminder of Chinese imports – the $200 billion worth of goods – would no doubt affect consumers. Those goods include iPhones, laptops, clothing and other everyday products.

“The U.S. Economy is really going well. And if you’re going to fight back and be pushing back on China, now is the time to do it when we just came off 3.2 percent economic growth, when we’re talking about growth of about 3 percent year over year in 2018 and when jobs are plentiful and unemployment is at record lows,” Bartiromo said.

“It is going to take some oomph out of the economy though.”

She then went on to explain why, attributing economists she had spoken with about the situation.

“If we don’t get a deal it’s going to cut 2/10 of a percent out of growth in the U.S. and it’s going to cut 4/10 of a percent out of the Chinese economy” Bartiromo said.

“So I think both sides want to deal but the Chinese probably need it a lot more than the U.S. do frankly.”
