HOUSTON TX May 19 2010 – A Houston police officer has died from injuries received in a rollover crash on the I-45 feeder road.
It happened Tuesday around 11:45 p.m. near East Troy Street.
Police said Officer Eydelmen Mani, 30, was assisting in a chase when he left the road, ran over signs, slammed into a guardrail and rolled several times.
Officer Mani was pinned in the wreckage and had to be freed by firefighters.
Houston Police Chief Charles McClelland announced Mani’s death around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.
“This is a very difficult and sad day for the Houston Police Department and the citizens of Houston,” McClelland said. “We have just lost one of our own.”
At City Hall Wednesday morning, Mayor Annise Parker told council members that she’d gone to see the officer at the hospital around 1:30 a.m.
She said Mani, a seven-year veteran of the force, had been administered last rites and gone through 100 units of blood.
Mani is survived by his wife and 3-year-old son. He is one of 11 children who grew up in North Houston.
“My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Officer Mani’s family and loved ones and I ask all Houstonians to keep his family and the Houston Police Department in their thoughts and prayers,” Chief McClelland said.
Mani was assigned to the North Patrol Division.
The cause of the accident was still under investigation Wednesday morning.
Police responded to a report of a retail theft in progress at Meijer, 855 S. Randall Road, that involved a man running from the store who had threatened a store security guard by stating that he possibly had a gun or some other weapon.
Geneva police then reported they had located the man outside of a Burger King on the 800 block of Randall Road and were holding the man at gunpoint along with the assistance of an off-duty Aurora police officer.
St. Charles police then went to the Burger King and placed Trujillo-Zuno into custody.
Meijer store security said the incident began when Trujillo-Zuno attempted to steal two cases of beer from the store.
Store security brought Trujillo-Zuno into the security office and began a search of his person. Trujillo-Zuno then placed a set of keys into his closed fist and feinted a punch at the security officer before running from the store.
Security chased Trujillo-Zuno across the store’s parking lot when he suddenly slowed down, lifted open his jacket and advised security that if they continued to follow him he would shoot them.
Security then called police to continue the chase. Police did not locate a weapon on Trujillo-Zuno.
The total value of the cases of beer Trujillo-Zuno allegedly tried to steal is about $27.
by:Frosty Wooldridge When the rate of immigration exceeds the rate of assimilation as it accelerates in the United States today, our civilization stands in the cross-hairs of deadly consequences. Paris, France illustrates a clue to our own future. Sydney, Australia brings it home like gang busters. Holland’s Theo Van Gogh suffered death by a Third World immigrant angry about a movie. Muslim men raping Swedish women reached epidemic proportions in 2009. By importing massive numbers of Third World immigrants, both countries find themselves suffering from violent social upheaval. Nothing good will come of it.
Who suffers? The politicians who brought the mess into being in those countries? Hardly! Who then? The simple answer is: the citizens of those societies.
Closer to home, Mexico suffers a corrupt government. It’s led by President Calderon and his band of cronies. Mexico’s corruption is imbedded into every aspect of its society. The same holds true for many Third World nations. Corruption becomes a mechanism by which those societies operate.
That corruption spreads into the United States in the form of MS-13 gangs passing through Mexico from El Salvador now operating in 40 states with over 20,000 members. (Source: Newsweek) Drugs, killings, sex for sale and extortion make up their modus operandi. Corruption imbeds itself in Los Angeles, California with the 20,000 member ‘18th Street Gang’ that facilitates drive-by shootings, drug distribution and extortion of businesses. Mexico facilitates $75 to $100 billion annually in drugs being shipped into America.
This kind of crime stands as a systemic breakdown of the rule of law in America. It’s so bad, police in Los Angeles and other cities—can’t stop it.
In a “60 Minutes” special, Steve Kroft presented another aspect of crime spreading across America. Ten million illegal Mexicans use America for their base of operations. They defraud our tax system, welfare, schools and hospitals. Untold numbers of illegals from South America facilitate a $10 billion annual shoplifting crime wave.
Over 2,500 members, all illegal aliens, participate in highly-skilled, well-organized groups that steal clothes, jewelry and cargo from anywhere in the United States. They fence stolen goods on web sites, underground discount stores in the US and through shipments back to their countries.
Craig Matsamato, head of loss prevention at Reebok said. “You’re finding them throughout California, Maryland, Chicago, Miami and New York.”
New York Police Department’s Organized Theft Task Force Sgt. Scott Guginski said, “They’re professional at what they do. They make special ‘booster bags’ lined with foil to smuggle merchandise out of the store without being detected.”
If arrested, they know their ‘rights’, especially in the dozens of ‘Sanctuary Cities’ across America. A sanctuary city is one designated by mayors or city councils to protect illegals from being detected as to their immigration status. They cannot be arrested for being inside the United States illegally. It gives illegals carte blanc for their illegal activities. Sanctuary policies in Denver, Dallas, Phoenix and Boulder have gotten several Americans killed in the past year.
“Last year, the South American gangs were responsible for 195 jewelry robberies, stealing an estimated $75 million in merchandise,” Rich Loebl, vice-president of Le Vian Jewelers in New York.
Miami’s example of a ‘Sanctuary City’ last year showed how Reynaldo Rapalo, an illegal alien from Honduras, raped seven women from 11 year old girls all the way up to 79 year old ladies. He enjoyed his rape spree at the hands of public officials who voted for the sanctuary policy.
Remember what former President Bush said, “They do the work that American citizens won’t do.”
“These groups pre-determine and have plans if somebody is arrested,” Sgt. Guginski said. “If a team of eight goes out and two of them are arrested, it’s the responsibility of the other six to get the money together to bail them out and get them back on the street. Teams consist of men and women. Their precision exceeds most law enforcement officers’ imaginations.”
Since Obama and Congress won’t secure America’s borders, criminals from China, Russia, Mexico and South America stroll across at will. There are so many of them today in the United States; they think it’s normal to carry on their lawless behavior.
Who pays? You and I do! American taxpayers pay $2.0 billion annually to imprison the illegals that are convicted of felony crimes. Do you want to know the numbers that involves? With 2.3 million felons in federal and state prisons, illegal alien criminals make up 29 percent of the prison population. That equals in excess of 550,000 illegal alien criminals that enjoy three squares daily, a bed and TV after they have killed us, raped our loved ones, robbed us or stolen from stores via shoplifting to the tune of $10 billion annually.
While President Obama and Congress walk around unaffected by this massive illegal invasion of our country, U.S. citizens suffer rapes, killings, drunken driving deaths, tax fraud, drug distribution, extortion and this massive shoplifting phenomenon.
Americans find themselves living in what once was a Constitutional Republic, but is now a corporate controlled and bought-off Congress with a complicit president. It’s not that Obama can’t do his job to secure our borders; Obama won’t do his job. He betrays his oath of office. He places all of us at risk. He won’t honor Article IV Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution. He’s not alone. Congress plays along in this deadly game by its own ‘silent-assertion’ which is the shabbiest of all lies.
When you add up the other ‘activities’ being promoted by this president and Congress, it’s little wonder Detroit died. It’s no wonder that outsourcing, insourcing and offshoring steal jobs from American citizens. How about the $56 billion in cash transfers being sent to home countries by legal immigrants and illegal aliens annually? That’s your Congress and president helping them drain our money from our country. No wonder we’re $12 trillion in debt! Do you think the illegals pay the interest on the debt? No, you do! What about our English language being overwhelmed by immigrants who have no regard or respect for our country?
The kind of disrespect and corruption imbedding itself in America stems from non-enforcement of our immigration laws. Our troops guard South Korea, Bosnia, Iraq and dozens of other countries, but our president won’t guard over our own borders with Mexico. Obama won’t enforce immigration laws because his corporate friends make a lot of money with illegal alien labor. Never mind that he undermines America’s working poor and middle class. He’s selling out our sovereignty, our culture, our laws, our language and our Constitution.
The women, Katina Jetuan Jones, 39, and Paula A. Youngblood, 55, are accused of swindling two Fayette County residents and one Clayton County resident. The suspects are being held in the Fayette County Jail.
Authorities gave this account of an Oct. 7 incident in north Fayette County:
Jones and Youngblood showed up at the home of an elderly woman stating they were police officers. They weren’t in uniform, but they displayed “law enforcement-type badges.”
They told the woman she was being investigated for making counterfeit money and ordered her to produce any cash she had inside the home.
“The two women continued by threatening to arrest the elderly female if she did not produce any money from her bank account,” according to the Sheriff’s Office.
They drove her to a Riverdale bank, and the woman withdrew cash and handed it over. The suspects abandoned her at Church’s Chicken in Riverdale.
Jones and Youngblood are charged with impersonating a police officer, robbery and kidnapping in that incident. Additional charges are pending for the other two incidents, the Sheriff’s Office said.
The Trentonian reported that, the city’s Police Department was called in to provide security.
The “sick-out” comes as the guards and other school workers face layoffs in a district looking to cut costs.
There were reports of food-fights and books being thrown at the schools but no other major incidents.
One 16-year-old girl was arrested at one high school for what was described as “inappropriate behavior.”
A security guard spotted Andres Sotelo Rivero, 41, and another man walking away from the disturbed grave Tuesday night and told them to stop, but each took off in different directions, police said. The guard chased Rivero and managed to hold him until police arrived. The other suspect got away.
Rivero, of Tampa, had a Spider-man backpack containing human skeletal remains, a hammer and a tire iron, said Lt. Ruben Delgado. Police are not sure whether Rivero was robbing the grave of valuables or stealing bones for religious purposes.
Delgado said police believe the bones belong to that grave, the final resting place of a person who died in 1932.
Rivero is charged with desecration of a grave and aggravated assault for attempting to hit the security guard with a brick. He was taken to the Orient Road jail.
Milwaukee County’s privatization efforts have raised questions about what the county knows about those doing its work.
WISN 12 News learned a security guard paid to transport patients is serving prison time for sexually assaulting one of them.
The private security guard was paid by a county contractor.
Two years ago, Sherri Lorimer thought she was as low as she could go when she ended up here at the Milwaukee county mental health complex.
“I lost my job my whole world fell apart. I got extremely drunk,” Lorimer said. “The police came, they actually kicked down the door, took me to mental health. They said I’d get help there.”
When she got to the Milwaukee County mental health complex, the staff decided Lorimer needed to go to detox. So, a private security guard loaded her into a squad car and headed to the Genesis Detox Center on Milwaukee’s north side. But blocks from detox, the guard took a turn down an alley.
“I remember thinking, what am I going to do, the man’s got a gun, where am I going to go,” Lorimer said. “I thought I was going to die that day.”
Lorimer said she believes people should know what happened to her at the hands of a guard paid to protect her.
“He knew right where he was going, there’s no way anyone can tell me that he has not done this before, that he’s not been here before,” she said.
Police arrested 25-year-old Alex Gonzalez that night, but released him. Prosecutors charged him 8 months later after DNA test results corroborated Lorimer’s story.
Lorimer said she felt victimized again when she learned her attacker’s history. Gonzalez had no valid state license to work security and worse yet, he was an ex-con with a lengthy rap sheet Gonzalez was out on bail when he raped her.
“Heck I can’t even get some jobs because of my background, how is this man carrying a gun, working for a security company, transporting vulnerable people,” Lorimer said.
Alex Gonzalez worked for Wisconsin Security Police Services, which contracted with the county’s detox provider, and eventually the county itself, to transport patients from the mental health complex.
In a written statement, Wisconsin Security Police “denied allegations of wrongdoing (and) specifically denied contentions regarding the absence of background checks performed in the context of its hiring practices.”
Genesis Behavioral Services said it expects its contractors to conduct “a criminal background check, a review of applicable licensing, a detailed check of references.” So does Milwaukee County.
“This individual never came up as someone who was going to be dealing with our patients,” said Lisa Marks who runs Milwaukee County’s health and human services.
Marks said county contracts require private firms to check the backgrounds of those they employ. She said privatization makes it easier to get rid of problem employees.
“Had that been a Milwaukee County employee there would have been a union process to go through and a civil service process to go through to maybe say this is not the employee we want here,” Marks said.
Nonetheless, two years after Gonzalez sexually assaulted Sherri Lorimer the company that hired him still transports patients from Milwaukee County Mental Health.
“That they’re still transporting blows my mind that they’re still transporting people,” Lorimer said.
Lorimer thinks that puts the county’s most vulnerable citizens at risk.
“I’m scared to death for those people. I’m scared to death for anybody who goes to mental health. I’m scared to death for them, I’ll never be back there, ever,” Lorimer said.
Gonzalez is currently serving a five year prison sentence. As for the county, it tells 12 News it audits its contractors’ employee records to ensure the proper background checks have been completed.
Milwaukee County also said it has terminated its relationship with the security company for reasons unrelated to Lorimer’s sexual assault. The county said another company simply outbid Wisconsin Security Police for that contract.
A Nogales police officer has been arrested on charges that he had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old girl.
Officer Mariano Garibay is charged with “several counts” of sexual conduct with a minor, according to a police department news release.
According to the release, the department received information regarding the alleged relationship on May 10. A preliminary investigation was conducted at the direction of Chief Jeff Kirkham and Assistant Chief Roy Bermudez, and then turned over to the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office.
As a result of the continuing investigation, Garibay was arrested and booked into the county jail, the news release said.
Garibay had been with the Nogales Police Department since 2007.
Police had responded to the Kennedy home twice in the week before the arrest but said no crimes had been committed there.
Mary Richardson Kennedy, 50, was arrested Saturday with a blood-alcohol level of 0.11 percent, Sgt. Matt Dunn said. The legal limit is 0.08 percent.
Kennedy told police she was at the Bedford school to pick up people from a carnival, authorities said.
Officers had visited the Kennedy home twice in the last week, on May 10 and May 13, but Lt. Jeff Dickan said those visits were unrelated to the arrest.
In one call, Kennedy reported a dispute between children, Dickan said. The other visit resulted in a state domestic incident report, but there were “no crimes committed, no report of assault, no arrests and no need for follow-up,” Dickan said. He declined to elaborate.
Police would not say whether anyone else was in the car when Kennedy was arrested or if she had a lawyer. There was no phone listing for the Kennedy home.
Robert Kennedy Jr. is the son of former Sen. Robert Kennedy and nephew of President John F. Kennedy. He did not immediately return a call to his White Plains office, where he works as an environmental attorney.
The case against Chesapeake Police Officer Michael Boyd started one week ago with a call to police.
Court documents obtained by NewsChannel 3 only say the complaint came from a concerned citizen. It does not give the caller’s name.
Chesapeake detectives thought the complaint was serious enough that they wanted to see if Boyd’s accusations were true. According to the documents, a detective texted Boyd posing as a 16-year-old girl named Brittany. Police say Boyd sent the imaginary girl nude pictures of himself, hoping he would receive pictures of her in return.
NewsChannel 3 tried to talk to a number of Boyd’s neighbors. They wouldn’t talk on camera. Off camera they said they believed police had been looking at Boyd for at least a few days -if not a few weeks.
Police arrested Boyd at his house Monday night. Neighbors say investigators took a number of boxes out of Boyd’s apartment, but they couldn’t tell what was in the boxes.
Boyd is free right now on $7,500 bond. The police department says he is on unpaid administrative leave. He’ll be in court Thursday on sex charges associated with a minor.
