Suspect in Trump star vandalism now accused of stealing Marilyn Monroe statue

A man who was arrested last year for vandalizing President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was taken into custody Friday for allegedly stealing a Marilyn Monroe statue in Hollywood.

“It’s unfortunate he’s seeking this method to gain fame,” Los Angeles Police Department Detective Douglas Oldfield said, according to KNBC-TV.

Police said Austin Mikel Clay, 25, who was on felony probation at the time, allegedly climbed a piece of artwork at the Four Ladies of Hollywood Gazebo on Sunday and used a hacksaw to remove the statue, which remains missing. Oldfield said it may be broken into pieces.

Authorities: Theft ring stole $4 million in used cooking oil

A band of 21 conspirators stole $3.9 million worth of used of cooking oil, known as “yellow grease,” from restaurants in three states and transported it across the country, according to a federal indictment unsealed in North Carolina on Thursday.

The thieves targeted multiple eateries in North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia over five years. They pumped the oil from restaurant storage tanks into trucks and sold it.

“Used cooking oil has become a sought-after commodity by biodiesel companies, and restaurants use the sale of this oil as another source of revenue,” said John Eisert, Acting Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Charlotte, N.C., said in a new release. “This team of co-conspirators had an elaborate scheme to steal thousands of gallons of cooking oil for their own profit in violation of several U.S. laws.”

Used cooking oil has become a valuable commodity for biodiesel companies. The oil rendering industry loses between $45 million and $75 million to oil theft each year., U.S. Attorney Robert Higdon Jr. said in the release.

A pound of “yellow grease” is estimated to be worth around $25, according to the U.S. Agriculture Department.

In April, a Virginia man was charged with stealing hundreds of gallons of oil from a Burger King and three men in 2014 were charged in the theft of 10,000 gallons of oil in Illinois, according to The Associated Press.

Six of the defendants named in the federal indictment are still being sought. In addition to the theft charges, several defendants were also charged with immigration violations.

Man pleads guilty to sending ‘white powder,’ threatening letters to OkCupid’s Dallas office

A Massachusetts man pleaded guilty Thursday to sending threatening letters – one of which included white powder – to the Dallas office of the popular dating service OkCupid in 2017.

Liam MacLeod, 47, was arrested in February for sending the letter between September and December 2017, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts said in a news release.

MacLeod, of Beverly, Mass., had been angry that the service banned him for violating the company’s terms of service, according to federal documents cited by the Dallas Morning News.

One of the letters sent to OkCupid’s Dallas office contained a “suspicious white powder” and the message: “Greeting from Beverly … Ban me will ya … Welcome to the wonderful world of ANTHRAX … Expect a package within the next couple of days … It won’t be ticking but it should be interesting!”

MAN WHO SENT POWDER-FILLED LETTERS TO TRUMP SONS GETS PROBATION

Eight more envelopes came postmarked from Boston, according to a criminal complaint. Some of those letters contained a blood-like substance and references to a suspended account, the Morning News reported. Dallas County health officials determined none of the envelopes contained hazardous materials.

Investigators were able to identify MacLeod by matching details in the letters with his suspended account. He pleaded guilty Thursday to two counts of mailing threatening communications and two counts of conveying false information and hoaxes.

Georgia inmate says ‘I ain’t never took a life’ before execution

A Georgia man convicted of a 1996 shotgun slaying maintained he “ain’t never took a life,” before he was put to death by lethal injection Thursday.

Marion Wilson Jr., 42, and Robert Earl Butts Jr. were convicted of murder and sentenced to death for the shotgun slaying of 24-year-old Donovan Corey Parks in Milledgeville — about 90 miles southeast of Atlanta.

FILE: Marion Wilson Jr. Wilson was convicted of killing an off-duty prison guard in Georgia more than two decades earlier. (Georgia Department of Corrections via AP,)

Wilson told his friends, family and supporters before receiving a deadly injection of pentobarbital at the state prison in Jackson: “I love y’all forever. Death can’t stop it. Can’t nothing stop it.”

He accepted an offer to have a prayer read. The warden exited the execution chamber at 9:40 p.m. and Wilson was pronounced dead 12 minutes later.

Wilson was convicted in November 1997 of malice murder, armed robbery, hijacking a motor vehicle, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a sawed-off shotgun. Butts, who was found guilty of the same charges about a year later, was executed in May 2018.

DAD SENTENCED TO DIE, BUT EXECUTIONS RARE IN SOUTH CAROLINA

The killing occurred on March 28, 1996, after Parks went to a Walmart to buy cat food, leaving his car right out front. A witness heard Butts ask Parks for a ride, and several people saw them getting into Parks’ car, according to a Georgia Supreme Court summary of evidence and the testimony presented at trial.

Butts was in the front passenger seat and Wilson was in the back as they left. A short distance away, the men ordered Parks out of the car, shot him in the back of the head and stole his car, prosecutors said.

At Wilson’s trial, while asking the jurors to impose the death penalty, Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit District Attorney Fred Bright said Wilson “blew (Parks’) brains out on the side of the road.”

Parks’ brother, Chris Parks, was a witness to the executions of both Butts and Wilson. He told The Associated Press last week that he was frustrated by how long it took for the death sentences to be carried out. Now, he said, he hopes his family can start to heal.

“Execution doesn’t bring him back,” he said, referring to his brother. “But what execution does is it offers a starting point for myself, my dad, our family, to finally get some sort of closure and to start healing.”

Navy won’t drop murder charges against SEAL Edward Gallagher despite bombshell testimony

Navy prosecutors are still pursuing murder charges against Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher even after bombshell testimony Thursday by a Navy colleague who confessed that he was the one to kill the teenage Islamic State fighter.

Special Operator 1st Class Corey Scott, a SEAL Team Seven medic, testifying for the prosecution under an immunity agreement, told the court that he held his “thumb over his TT tube until he quit breathing,” admitting that he asphyxiated the captive, despite saying that he saw Gallagher stab the boy in his neck.

MEDIC TESTIFIES THAT HE, NOT NAVY SEAL EDDIE GALLAGHER, WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR ISIS FIGHTER’S DEATH

When cross-examined by the defense, Scott said he killed the fighter because he knew “he was going to die anyways.”

“I wanted to save him from what was going to happen to him next,” Scott said, referring to alleged torture by Iraqi captors.

Gallagher served nine months in prison awaiting trial in the fatal stabbing of the 15-year old ISIS fighter in Iraq in 2017. He has also been accused of shooting two civilians in the same year, and opening fire on crowds, all claims he has vociferously denied.

Gallagher’s attorney Tim Parlatore, said at a news conference he is “expecting a not-guilty verdict” after Scott’s testimony.

Prosecutors are now treating Scott as a hostile witness, saying that he did not disclose that he was the one to asphyxiate the ISIS fighter in his pre-trial interviews and is only doing so now because he has an immunity deal and doesn’t want to see his colleague go to prison.

Gallagher, a decorated naval officer with 19 years of service who earned a Bronze Star with V for Valor twice, a Meritorious Unit Commendation and a trio of Navy and Marine Corps Achievement medals, was joined by his wife and two children outside the courtroom Thursday.

“This is probably the worst-case scenario of what you could expect as a military family after nearly 20 years of service,” she added.

Judge Andrew Napolitano: Can government punish twice for the same crime?

“…nor shall any person be subject for the same offense

to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb…”

–Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

The government in America is out of control.

Last week, this column discussed the unconstitutional efforts of federal prosecutors in Chicago to punish an American citizen for crimes that had not yet been committed. This week, I address the wish of federal prosecutors in Alabama to charge and to punish a man for a crime for which he had already been convicted and punished.

There is no happy ending here. Earlier this week, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the same criminal event can trigger two prosecutions, one by the feds and one by the state; and it can also trigger two punishments.

JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO: TRASHING THE CONSTITUTION AGAIN

Here is the backstory.

Terance Gamble, who had once been convicted of robbery in Alabama, was stopped by a Mobile, Alabama, policeman who claimed Gamble was driving a car with a damaged headlight. He then claimed Gamble gave him consent to search his car. Neither of these police claims is credible, but that is not the point of this argument. When the search revealed a loaded handgun, Gamble was arrested and his constitutional odyssey began.

Because Gamble was a convicted felon at the time his vehicle was stopped and the handgun was discovered, his possession of the handgun violated Alabama law and also violated federal law. Both laws prohibit convicted felons from owning or possessing firearms for life.

After he pleaded guilty in Alabama state court to being a felon in possession of a handgun and began to serve his jail term, federal prosecutors sought and obtained an indictment for Gamble’s violation of the federal statute prohibiting felons from possessing firearms. Gamble then pleaded guilty in federal court, reserving his right to challenge his federal conviction on the theory that it constituted double jeopardy.

The Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides that no person shall “for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb.” This is commonly referred to as the double jeopardy clause. Like the other initial eight amendments in the Bill of Rights, the Fifth Amendment was written largely in response to government excesses and abuses during the colonial period. In the case of this clause, it was expressly written to prevent repeated attempts to convict.

Notwithstanding the plain language in the amendment, the trial court dismissed Gamble’s challenge and a federal appellate court upheld that dismissal. Earlier this week, the Supreme Court agreed with the lower courts and permitted the second guilty plea to stand, and the second incarceration to be served.

Isn’t double punishment profoundly un-American and clearly unconstitutional? In a word: Yes.

It is not only un-American and contrary to the Fifth Amendment; it violates the natural right to proportional punishment. That right guarantees that a defendant shall not be punished more severely than others similarly situated and not more severely than the defendant’s behavior warranted. I am not arguing here that all convicted felons should have access to firearms, though many — like those convicted of nonviolent crimes — should. Yet, Gamble’s mere possession of this handgun harmed no one, and it hardly merits a double dose of punishment.

No crime merits double punishment. We know that because it was a policy judgment made by James Madison & Co. when Congress passed and the states ratified the Bill of Rights. The framers were personally familiar with the British officials’ practice of repeatedly trying defendants — usually folks colonial officials hated or feared — for the same crime, until they got the verdict and the punishment that they wanted.

We fought a revolution over abuses like this, and we wrote a Constitution to prevent those abuses from happening here.

And here we are in 2019 and those abuses are still with us. If the feds fail to convict you, the state has a shot. If the state fails to convict you, the feds have a shot. If both governments want to charge you and try you and punish you for the same offense — the same criminal event and the same crime — they can constitutionally do so.

Why should you care about this? You should care because repeated attempts to convict are hallmarks of tyrants. Yet the Supreme Court, in an obeisance to textualism — the literal adherence to the words of a document no matter the outcome of that adherence — ruled that the Fifth Amendment only prohibits the re-prosecution for the same offense, not for the same crime; and Gamble’s behavior was actually two crimes, one state and one federal, not two offenses.

Come again? Isn’t it obvious from history that all repeated attempts to convict for offenses or crimes are barred by the values that underlie the words the court has just abused?

This business of double prosecutions for the same event or offense or crime and double punishments is bad law. As Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote in dissent, “A free society does not allow its government to try the same individual for the same crime until it’s happy with the result.”

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

Compare that clear liberty-loving language with the Court’s tortured idea of the textual differences between offenses and crimes, and one can see that judicial intellectual chicanery can always find a means to an end. The Supreme Court should be in the business of protecting our rights, not upending them.

The benefit of any historical doubt or textual ambiguity should always favor liberty over power, because liberty is inalienable and integral to our humanity and essential for our happiness. Power is whatever the government wants it to be.

Suspect charged with punching Walmart greeter, 72, knocking him out: reports

A 72-year-old greeter at a Walmart store in Texas says he was punched in the face and knocked unconscious – just for doing his job.

It happened last Friday at a Walmart location in Cypress, northwest of Houston, according to KTRK-TV.

The greeter, Mohinder Randhawa, told the station he just wanted to check that a customer had paid for a case of Gatorade being carried out of the store.

MICHIGAN MAN SHOPLIFTED WALMART 3 TIMES IN ONE DAY: POLICE

That’s when the suspect, identified as Craig Valentine, 42, of Hockley, got angry, started yelling, and then cold-cocked him, Randhawa said.

“He punched on my face with a closed right hand,” Randhawa told KTRK. “I fell down on the ground.

“My left upper lip was broken from here, blood started out, and inside also there was a cut about half an inch,” he continued.

Randhawa claims he never accused the suspect of stealing the drinks. He said cashiers sometimes miss an item while scanning a customer’s purchases and he just wanted to check.

“I was doing my duty, the greeter explained. “I was doing what I was supposed to do.”

A probable-cause affidavit says Valentine “chest bumped” the greeter before punching him, Cox Media Group reported. He posted $1,000 bail and was released pending further court action.

Georgia panel delays clemency ruling for condemned man

The state parole board has delayed making a decision in a clemency hearing for a Georgia inmate set to be executed for the slaying of an off-duty prison guard.

Marion Wilson Jr. is scheduled to receive a lethal injection Thursday. Wilson and Robert Earl Butts Jr. were convicted of murder and sentenced to death in the 1996 slaying of Donovan Corey Parks.

Prosecutors say Wilson and Butts killed Parks and stole his car after asking him for a ride at a Walmart.

Butts was executed last year.

The State Board of Pardons and Paroles says a decision regarding clemency would be issued before Thursday’s scheduled execution.

The parole board is Georgia’s only authority that can commute a death sentence.

Wilson would be the second prisoner executed by Georgia this year.
