A LAUGHING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT WHO KILLED TWO COPS: ‘I wish I could have killed more of those motherf***ers,’
( Daily Mail ) An illegal immigrant laughed as he admitted to killing two Sacramento-area police officers and pledged to do it again, in a series of chilling courtroom outbursts on Tuesday.
Luis Bracamontes, 37, is standing trial at Sacramento Superior Court for the 2014 murders of Sacramento Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Davis Jr.
‘I wish I could have killed more of those motherf***ers,’ Bracamontes said, before Judge Steve White, according to the Sacramento Bee.
‘I will break out soon, and I will kill more, kill whoever gets in front of me.’
Bracamontes, who has requested the death penalty at several hearings throughout the process leading up to his trial, didn’t stop there.
‘There’s no need for a f***ing trial,’ he said, grinning and laughing as prosecutor Rod Norgaard described the violent events that unfolded at Bracamontes’ hand on October 24, 2014.
This outburst led to the judge ordering the jury temporarily out of the room.
Throughout the opening statements the defendant grinned, smiled, laughed and refused to remain quiet.
( Daily Caller ) The first Somali person to become a police officer in Maine was arrested Saturday night for disrupting a concert and heads to court Wednesday to face multiple charges for her behavior.
The 24-year-old police officer, Zahra Munye Abu, was arrested Saturday night at Palladium Nightclub in Worcester, Mass., for assault and battery and was charged with three other counts of misdemeanor, according to the Portland Press Herald. Abu was bailed out of jail at 1 a.m. Sunday, but the bail amount has not been disclosed.
“She was (given) several opportunities to leave and refused. Eventually she was placed under arrest,” Worcester police Sgt. Kerry F. Hazelhurst said.
Abu, who previously served the city of Portland as an officer, has been put on paid administrative leave until the court resolves her case, according to Portland Police Chief, Michael Sauschuck. “The Portland Police Department was notified late Saturday night of the arrest of Police Officer Zahra Abu in Worcester, Massachusetts,” Sauschuck said, the Portland Press Herald reports.
“This issue will be dealt with as a personnel matter from this point forward, so I will have no further comment,” he added.
( Fox News ) An illegal immigrant on a Greyhound bus who allegedly threatened to shoot and kill passengers on Friday — leading police on a chase from Wisconsin to Illinois — was deported five times, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesperson told Fox News.
The spokesperson said on Sunday that Margarito Vargas-Rosas, 33, who faces terror charges, was in the U.S. illegally and was “removed” from the U.S. the last five times Border Patrol agents encountered him. He also had a previous DUI arrest to his name.
A judge in Illinois on Sunday ordered the suspect held without bond. Vargas-Rosas faces a fugitive-from-justice charge.
Police responded to a call around 9:40 p.m. Friday from a bus passenger who claimed there was a person threatening to kill people, Fox 6 reported, citing the Racine County Sheriff’s Department.
Vargas-Rosas, of Chicago, was reportedly pacing the aisle toward the back of the bus, and appeared to draw what passengers thought was a weapon from his waistband.

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Carjacked, thrown to the ground, and driven over with his own car.
The wife of a Baltimore County man who was attacked during a carjacking talks to WJZ about the vicious attack that now has four teens behind bars.
Right now, Baltimore County police are looking for two other teens still wanted in connection with the carjacking that left a man seriously injured.
Police aren’t saying how they connected the dots, but we now know that a Comcast worker caught the entire incident on video.
The victim, identified as 69-year-old Jim Willinghan, is still recovering at Shock Trauma, but his wife says he will be moved to another facility to undergo six months of rehab for his broken pelvis.
Last Wednesday morning, Baltimore County police say six teens viciously carjacked, assaulted, and drove over Willinghan.
Willinghan’s wife says he will be at Shock Trauma for 10 more days, before being moved to another facility to start the rehab.
Three of the teens arrested in this case are being charged as adults, for attempted murder, assault, carjacking, and other charges.
( NPR ) For the third year in a row, Baltimore, Md., has had more than 300 murders, reaching a new record of murders per number of residents in 2017.
Some residents attribute the high murder rate to relaxed police patrols in the city following high-profile cases of police brutality. Officers have backed off in neighborhoods, like the one where Freddie Gray was arrested.
The Rev. Kinji Scott, a pastor in Baltimore who’s held positions in local city government, says the opposite needs to happen.
“We wanted the police there,” Scott says. “We wanted them engaged in the community. We didn’t want them beating the hell out of us, we didn’t want that.”
He’s among activists who are calling for police reform to reduce the violence in Baltimore and several other high-crime cities across the U.S. that he says haven’t seen change. That change begins with a conversation between the communities directly involved, Scott says.
“We need the front line police officers and we need the heart of the black community to step to the forefront of this discussion,” he says. “And that’s when we’re going to see a decrease in crime.”
