Alleged Pittsburgh synagogue gunman to face death penalty

Westlake Legal Group AP19238738629967 Alleged Pittsburgh synagogue gunman to face death penalty Louis Casiano fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/pennsylvania fox-news/us/religion/judaism fox-news/us/crime/mass-murder fox-news/us/crime/homicide fox-news/us/crime/hate-crime fox news fnc/us fnc article 5db05495-9222-5f8d-9fbe-f1282088b0bf

Federal prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty against a man charged with killing 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue last year, according to a Monday court filing.

The Justice Department cited the planning, killing of vulnerable victims, hostility toward the Jewish faith and premeditation in its intent to seek the death penalty against suspect Robert Bowers.

Scott W. Brady, the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, had been expected to seek the death penalty. A Justice Department spokesman said last year that Brady had “initiated the approval process” for the punishment.

Bowers, 46, was accused of using an AR-15 rifle and several handguns to kill worshippers at the Tree of Life synagogue during an Oct. 27, 2018, Shabbat service while shouting anti-Semitic slurs.

Seven people, including five police officers, were wounded. A tactical police team shot Bowers during the deadly assault.

He has pleaded not guilty to more than 50 charges.

Investigators said Bowers expressed hatred toward Jewish people after police arrested him.

The filing in the U.S. District Court of Western Pennsylvania said Bowers targeted the worshippers “in order to maximize the devastation, amplify the harm of his crimes and instill fear within the local, national and international Jewish communities.”

Prosecutors wrote that the death penalty will be justified if Bowers is convicted of obstruction of free exercise of religious beliefs resulting in death, or of using a gun to commit a crime of violence.

Following the massacre, President Trump said the perpetrator should “suffer the ultimate price.”

Prosecutors and defense attorneys have agreed to a 120-day extension in the case.

Pennsylvania woman, 19, wanted in stabbings of 2 sisters; 1 killed

Police are searching for a Philadelphia teen accused of stabbing two sisters, killing one and critically wounding the other.

The Philadelphia Police Department said Thursday that Tianna Thomas, 19, was wanted in the Tuesday attack. Investigators say Thomas stabbed 23-year old Shantae Garrison multiple times in the chest, back and legs during an incident authorities reportedly believe started as a neighborhood dispute.

Thomas also allegedly stabbed Garrison’s 28-year-old sister, who police said “sustained lacerations to her lip, forehead and wrist.”

The sister, who police did not name, was transported to the same hospital and was listed in critical condition.

Investigators said video of the incident showed as many as seven other women who were with Thomas at the time of the stabbings and took part in the assault, according to Fox 29.

Pennsylvania school district’s typo costing it nearly $900G, report says

A typo is saving homeowners in one Pennsylvania county about $32 each in property taxes but is costing the school district about $895,000, according to a report.

In June, an interim business administrator in the Pennsbury School District board resolution in Bucks County incorrectly stated the millage rate for this school year at 170.076 mills instead of the correct 171.076.

The error was discovered by the district’s new chief financial officer, Christopher Berdnik, when he started at the beginning of July – after tax bills had been mailed, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

TRUMP SAYS FRENCH WINE MAY FACE ‘100 PERCENT TARIFF’ IN RESPONSE TO TAX ON US TECH FIRMS: REPORT

Any retroactive changes could also leave the school district open to lawsuits.

Berdnik said property values are higher than they were assessed and the school district’s tax collection rate is high, which will account for $700,000 owed and the incorrect millage rate is 1.5 percent higher than last year. A resolution expected to be passed by the school board this month will refund much of the remaining debt.

No one caught the error initially because the millage rate wasn’t read aloud at the June meeting, The Inquirer reported.

Sixteen schools in the district are affected.

Man urinates on Starbucks cups, coffee filters, and in employee sink before fleeing the store, police say

Kinda makes you long for the days when people only dared to lick tubs of ice cream or spit into soda bottles.

Police in Pennsylvania are asking for the public’s help in apprehending a man who urinated all over a Starbucks inside the Target department store in Manheim Township before fleeing the scene.

Officials say that during the incident, which took place at 9:45 p.m. on Saturday, the man walked “behind the counter of the employee section, and urinated into a sink and onto several pieces of merchandise.” The public information officer at the Manheim Township Police Department confirmed to Fox News that the merchandise included several boxes filled with cups and coffee filters.

The suspect then fled the scene, but not before his image was captured by a surveillance camera.

As horrendous as the suspect’s action sounds, it wouldn’t be the first incident this year of someone urinating where they really, really shouldn’t.

In July, a woman in Florida was arrested for allegedly spitting and touching the wares at an ice cream shop before urinating into a bucket. Later that month, a woman was seen urinating on the potatoes at a Walmart in Pennsylvania, though she subsequently turned herself in.

IndyCar driver Felix Rosenqvist hospitalized after dramatic Pocono 5-car wreck

IndyCar driver Felix Rosenqvist was rushed to a hospital after he was involved in a dramatic five-car wreck soon after the start of a race at Pocono Raceway in Pennsylvania.

An ambulance took the Chip Ganassi Racing driver, who hails from Sweden, to the hospital after the wreck triggered by Takuma Sato on the first lap.

Sato, Ryan Hunter-Reay, James Hinchcliffe and Alexander Rossi were treated and released from the on-site medical center.

Sato, the 2017 Indianapolis 500 winner, said he thought he was all clear as he tried to make an aggressive pass early in the race.

“I’m not really over-aggressive,” he said.

Rosenqvist’s injuries weren’t considered life-threatening.

IndyCar medical director Geoffrey Billows said Rosenqvist was walking and was expected to be fine.

Rosenqvist, 27, has been in motorsports for over 10 years.

Rosenqvist first found a home in a single seater in Asia in 2008 before moving on to Europe as a driver in the Formula 3 feeder series, where he won 13 races and the championship in 2015.

A year later, Rosenqvist found himself in the Indy Lights series, a step below Indy cars. Rosenqvist made a name for himself by winning three of the 10 events he started, and he made a crucial connection with the CGR team by testing for them at Mid-Ohio in 2016 and 2017.

Rosenqvist won a pair of races in Formula E a year ago before nabbing a highly coveted seat with Ganassi’s Indy program.

It may be the weirdest batting stance in baseball history.

A hitter on the team from Venezuela participating in this year’s Little League World Series in Pennsylvania may have crouched lower in the batter’s box than any player ever has.

ESPN video tweeted by MLB‘s Cut 4 website from Saturday afternoon’s game against Australia shows 12-year-old Deivis Ordonez nearly sitting on the ground as he takes a pitch for a strike in the fifth inning.

Then on the very next pitch, Ordonez stood upright and bunted his way on base. Later, he showed off his dancing skills to the Williamsport crowd.

But his crouching style was so unorthodox that it has already been mimicked by social media sensation “Batting Stance Guy,” who imitates the stances of various ballplayers.

Suspect accused of shooting 6 Philadelphia cops during standoff charged with attempted murder

The man accused of shooting six Philadelphia police officers during a seven-hour standoff on Wednesday has been charged with attempted murder, authorities said.

Maurice Hill, 36, faces multiple counts of attempted murder, assault on a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault and reckless endangering, FOX 29 reported Saturday. Hill is being held without bail and is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 5.

Hill began firing on officers on Wednesday as they were serving a narcotics warrant, a situation which Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross has said. “went awry almost immediately.”

Police say Hill fired more than 100 rounds throughout the course of the hours-long standoff, which ended early Thursday when Hill surrendered after police deployed tear gas. Ross has expressed amazement that the standoff ended with no deaths and no life-threatening injuries

PHILADELPHIA STANDOFF: POLICE DISPATCH AUDIO REVEALS TENSE MOMENTS DURING HOURS-LONG ORDEAL

The six Philadelphia cops who were shot and wounded were taken to area hospitals and later released Wednesday night.

Hill has an extensive criminal record that includes multiple arrests in Philadelphia and adjacent Delaware County between 2001 and 2012, according to online records. His criminal convictions include assault, perjury, fleeing and eluding, escape and weapons offenses.

Hill served three stints in state prisons, with one of those coming on account of a probation violation. He was also sentenced to 55 months in federal prison term over a pair of convictions for being a felon in possession of firearms.

The suspect allegedly used a semi-automatic rifle and a handgun during the shooting, weapons authorities say he should not have been allowed to legally obtain due to his record..

AUTHORITIES RELEASE NAMES OF 6 COPS WOUNDED IN PHILADELPHIA STANDOFF

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Four other men were charged with drug offenses in connection with the standoff; two were trapped in the house along with the gunman and two Philadelphia police officers.

The paper reported that Hill was arraigned via video conference. He sat with arms crossed and head down, responding “I guess” when asked whether he understood the charges.

“I am not an immediate danger,” he said after a prosecutor argued for denial of bail.

The shooting began around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday when Hill allegedly opened fire on officers who were serving a warrant for his arrest.

The officers had to quickly flee the spray of bullets by escaping through windows and doors, Ross said.

Two officers remained trapped inside the house until about 9:30 p.m., along with three hostages. A SWAT team freed the officer and others, but Hill remained inside.

Hill’s lawyer, Shaka Johnson, said Hill called him during the standoff asking for help surrendering. Johnson then called Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner, and they patched in both Hill and the police commissioner, according to Krasner.

Hill told Johnson he wanted to make it out alive to see his newborn daughter and teenage son again. Krasner told the Inquirer that when Hill asked what kind of punishment he would face, the district attorney responded “25 years.”

“Then he said 20 and I said OK,” said Krasner, who explained to the paper that this apparent agreement was “bulls–t from the beginning.”

“I would have gone roller skating with the man if that would have gotten him out of there,” joked Krasner, who added that the suspect appeared to be intoxicated or under the influence of prescription drugs during the standoff.

Pennsylvania white supremacist sentenced to two years in prison after urging ‘lone wolves’ to kill Jews

Westlake Legal Group Hardy-Lloyd1 Pennsylvania white supremacist sentenced to two years in prison after urging 'lone wolves' to kill Jews Vandana Rambaran fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/pennsylvania fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast fox-news/us/crime/hate-crime fox news fnc/us fnc article 91636790-1366-5d46-ac88-255701a1db0e

A Pennsylvania man was sentenced to two years in federal prison Thursday for violating his probation by attempting to incite social media users to kill Jews.

Hardy Lloyd, 41, posted a social media message in April protesting the Pittsburgh City Council’s ban on assault weapons after the October mass shooting incident in which a gunman killed 11 worshipers at the Tree of Life synagogue.

“Anyone who supports such laws must be targeted, and their families murdered. Lone Wolves GET BUSY,” Lloyd wrote April 2, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

JOHN DELANEY REPEATEDLY QUESTIONED OVER REFUSAL TO LABEL TRUMP A ‘WHITE SUPREMACIST’ AT IOWA STATE FAIR

The next day, Lloyd furthered expressed his disdain for the three pieces of gun control legislation that would ban certain assault-style weapons and ammunition, urging others opposed to it to kill Jewish people in Squirrel Hill, where the previous attack had occurred, if the bill was not defeated.

“If not, well, disobey and kill, my Lone Wolves. Target: Jew Hill,” he wrote in an apparent reference to Squirrel Hill.

At the time of his posts, Lloyd was out on supervised release after he disrupted a vigil in suburban Mt. Lebanon, and U.S. District Judge Arthur J. Schwab sentenced him to prison despite calls for leniency from his family and friends, according to the Post-Gazette.

Lloyd himself testified in court, claiming that he is mentally ill but was attempting to change by seeing a therapist.

“I’m not going to make excuses. I apologize for the anger, pain and confusion I’ve caused the community,” Lloyd said.

Defense attorney Patrick Livingston noted that his client has mild autism and had made “significant progress” through therapy sessions and had stopped making hateful remarks since April.

The 41-year-old’s father, Jon Lloyd, said: “There must be a balance between therapy and punishment. My son’s illness is as real as a broken bone or colon cancer.”

Prosecutor Stephen Kaufman called on the judge to reject Lloyd’s bid for supervised release, noting the April posts marked the third time Lloyd had violated probation.

“Once again, we are here,” Kaufman said, according to CBS Pittsburgh. “This time with a disgusting threat of killing people in Squirrel Hill. Unimaginable. Less than 6 months after the Tree of Life assault when 11 people were slaughtered.”

Schwab acknowledged Lloyd’s autism but agreed with Kaufman that previous sentences of supervised release were unsuccessful since Lloyd continued to write online posts that showed “intent and advocacy for killing.”

Daughters of Philly mayor, NJ city councilwoman arrested after late-night street brawl: police

The daughters of Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney and a New Jersey city councilwoman were arrested earlier this week after brawling on a bar-lined street at the Jersey shore, police said.

Authorities say the altercation between 25-year-old Nora Kenney of Philadelphia and 27-year-old Tara Tolomeo took place early on Aug. 11 in North Wildwood.

Capt. John Stevenson told NJ Advance Media the two women were arrested around 1:40 a.m. after police caught them fighting in the city’s nightclub district.

The reasons for their alleged fight were unclear. Tolomeo’s mother, Kellyann Tolomeo, has served on North Wildwood’s city council since 2007, PhillyVoice reported.

The case is being handled by the Lower Township Municipal Court because of a potential conflict of interest with Tolomeo, Stevenson said. The women are expected back in court Aug. 22.
