WARNING: Child Predators Do Not Belong Near A Child
I remember the NFL Championship Game on January 1, 1967, which was played here at the Cotton Bowl, Dallas, Texas…
Green Bay Packers 34, Dallas Cowboys 27
Super Bowl I, Sunday, January 15 at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Los Angeles, California…
Green Bay Packers 35, Kansas City Chiefs 10
MVP: Bart Starr, quarterback
Al Hirt was one of the half time shows. I saw Al play in New Orleans when I was a very young teenager.
Incidentally, I started playing piano at a very young age(before I started playing cornet and trumpet), bad thing was, I could watch or listen to Liberace… but I got toreup if I got caught playing or listening to The Killer (Jerry Lee Lewis).
That pretty much says it all.
Long before Super Bowl 1, Dallas Cowboys has always been a family get together tradition, just like The Killer and Al Hirt.
Now, here we are just before the 54th Super Bowl, and I got some things to say…
Tomorrow, my Family will be getting together, in many places, and they will hear ME…
BUT, there will be NO FOX SPORTS, and NO MORE NFL!!!!
As far as we are concerned, FOX SPORTS, the NFL, and the Alphabet Sewer Rats deserve each other, and you all are not welcome around OUR FAMILY… and NOT IN MY WORLD!!!!
Education Official in N.Y. Is Accused of
Facilitating Child Sex Abuse
A high-ranking official in New York City’s Department of Education was arrested on Sunday in Wisconsin and accused of using a computer to facilitate a child sex crime, according to police officials there.
David A. Hay, the deputy chief of staff to schools chancellor Richard A. Carranza, was taken into custody at an airport in Milwaukee following an ongoing undercover investigation, said Officer Stuart Zuehls, a spokesman for the Neenah, Wis., police department.
Authorities in Wisconsin notified New York City officials hours after the arrest.
The Department of Education said it fired Mr. Hay after the arrest.
“These allegations are incredibly disturbing and absolutely unacceptable,” Miranda Barbot, a spokeswoman for the department, said in a statement. “We took immediate action removing Mr. Hay from payroll and are terminating him. We referred this to the Special Commissioner of Investigation and we will fully comply with any investigation.”
Mr. Hay, 39, did not regularly interact with students as part of his job, which was based at department headquarters in downtown Manhattan. Before moving to New York, however, Mr. Hay was a school principal in two Wisconsin school districts.
Officer Zuehls declined to offer more information about the charges or why Mr. Hay was arrested at an airport.
Under Wisconsin state law, someone who is accused of using a computer to facilitate a child sex crime is defined as a person who “uses a computerized communication system to communicate with an individual who the actor believes or has reason to believe has not attained the age of 16 years with intent to have sexual contact or sexual intercourse with the individual.”
It is not yet clear when the investigation into Mr. Hay was launched, or whether Mr. Hay has obtained a lawyer.
The investigation was conducted by the Neenah police department, with help from the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Department, though it is not yet clear what precise role the Milwaukee police played.
The investigation is ongoing, and there is no information yet about when Mr. Hay will be arraigned.
Mr. Hay grew up in the small town of Antigo, Wis., about three hours from Milwaukee, according to a 2017 interview.
Mr. Hay has served under both of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s schools chancellors: Mr. Carranza, who was appointed in the spring of 2018, and former chancellor Carmen Fariña.
He rose quickly in the Department of Education after joining in May 2016, first serving as a special assistant to Ms. Fariña while he was still a student at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, then helping oversee major programs — including the Renewal School initiative to help struggling schools — before being promoted to a deputy chief of staff last October, according to his page on LinkedIn.
He maintains an active Twitter account where he promotes Department of Education events and positive news stories about the department.
He spoke about his work at the Department of Education in a 2017 news item for the Harvard Graduate School of Education School’s website.
“To jump to the largest school system on the planet is incredible,” he said. “It’s humbling, challenging, and really promising.”
Members of Child Abuse WhatsApp
group arrested in 11 countries
“Some group members had even created “stickers”… similar to emojis – of children being abused.”
Spanish police say 33 people have been arrested globally in connection with a WhatsApp group for images of child sex abuse and other violent content.
The many “extreme” images shared in the group had been “normalised by most of its members”, the force said.
Arrests were made in 11 different countries across three continents, but the majority – 17 – were in Spain.
Many of those arrested or being investigated in Spain are themselves under 18, including a 15-year-old boy.
WARNING: Some readers may find details of this story disturbing
In Uruguay, police arrested two people – one of whom was a mother who abused her daughter and sent images of this to the group.
In another case, a 29-year-old man was arrested for not only downloading the images, but also encouraging other group members to make contact with young girls – particularly migrants who would be unlikely to go to the police.
How were they tracked down?
Spain’s National Police began investigating the group more than two years ago, after receiving an email with a tip-off.
They then enlisted the help of Europol, Interpol, and the police in Ecuador and Costa Rica.
As well as Spain and Uruguay, arrests were made in the UK, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Peru, India, Italy, France, Pakistan and Syria.
What did the group share?
In a statement, the police said the group shared “paedophilic content, sometimes of extreme severity, together with other content that was legal but was not suitable for minors because of their extreme nature”.
Some group members had even created “stickers” – small digital images that are easily shared, similar to emojis – of children being abused.
The police also said all of those arrested in Spain were men or boys, and that they come from a mix of social and cultural backgrounds.
One of these men had fled his home in Italy when a search was carried out. He went to a relative’s home in Salamanca, unaware that it was Spain’s National Police who had ordered his arrest.
The operation will now focus on identifying the children being abused in the images.
WANTED: Suspect reportedly tried to abduct a teenage girl in Colorado
FORT COLLINS, CO – Police in Colorado are hoping a composite sketch can help lead to an arrest in an attempted abduction case.
The incident happened on Tuesday in Fort Collins at about 3:40 p.m.
Police are reporting a teenage girl was riding her skateboard on Deerfield Drive when she fell.
A vehicle described as an older, tan, four-door sedan with “bubbled window tint” stopped, and a man got out. He approached the girl, grabbed her arm, and pushed her into his vehicle.
Two men were walking nearby and approached the vehicle to intervene.
The suspect reportedly told the witnesses that he knew the victim.
The victim told them she did not know the suspect.
She fled the area on foot and called the police a short time later.
Police are asking for help in identifying the suspect and are asking the two witnesses to come forward. A composite sketch of the suspect is at the top of this article.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic man, in his early 20s, about five-foot-ten, with short hair, a thin mustache, bushy eyebrows, a deep voice and a Spanish accent. He was wearing a white tank top and blue jeans at the time. He reportedly has tattoos on both arms.
“Detectives have been diligently investigating this incident. Now that they’ve spoken to area residents and completed necessary interviews, we need the larger community’s help identifying the suspect,” said Sgt. Heather Moore, who leads the Crimes Against Persons Unit.
“We’re very grateful to the bystanders who intervened, and we also really need them to contact police to share what they saw.”
Anyone with information is asked to call 970-416-2825.
KITSAP COUNTY, WA – Nineteen dangerous sexual predators who targeted children in Kitsap County were removed from the streets, thanks to a multi-day operation run by the Washington State Patrol (WSP) and several partner agencies.
Dubbed “Operation Net Nanny,” this is the 16th operation spearheaded by the WSP’s Missing and Exploited Children Task Force (MECTF), an Internet Crimes Against Children affiliate. Since the original operation in August 2015, MECTF has netted a total of 271 arrests and rescued more than 31 children across the state.
The funding for this operation was made possible due in part by support from the public as well as a generous donation from Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.). O.U.R. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) who shares the mission of law enforcement agencies to save children and see that child predators are arrested and prosecuted. O.U.R. is privileged and honored to partner with our nation’s law enforcement heroes in this important cause to combat the sexual exploitation of children in our nation’s communities.
MECTF’s primary mission is to proactively target those persons involved in child abuse and child exploitation via the internet. “This operation is aimed at protecting our vulnerable children. We will not rest in our efforts to make Washington communities safer and appreciate our partners in this important work” says WSP Chief John R. Batiste.
From July 25, 2019 to July 29, 2019, undercover law enforcement officers used various websites on the internet and phone applications to communicate with people interested in having sex with children. The operation generated hundreds of responses. The would-be perpetrators who were arrested during the operation traveled to meet with the undercover detectives posing as underage girls and boys with the intent to engage in sexual activity with children as young as six years old.
Primary crimes investigated are:
RCW 9A.44.073 – Rape of a child in the first degree – attempt
RCW 9A.44.076 – Rape of a child in the second degree – attempt
RCW 9.68A.100 – Commercial sexual abuse of a minor
RCW 9.68A.090 – Communication with a minor for immoral purposes
The names of the individuals arrested during the operation are:
Joseph T. McCarthy, 23, Maple Valley
Anthony J. Tangonan, 24, Bremerton
Owen T. Shreve, 27, Poulsbo
Hector C Escobar, 26, Lakewood
Jordan M. Kaufman, 24, Port Orchard
Kendall N Spann, 25, Bremerton
Bradley D Petrie, 21, Bremerton
Skyler L Barkdull, 20, Tacoma
Timmothy A Hoskinson, 49, Bremerton
David Bagby, 39, Port Orchard
Mathew E Sanches, 25, Tacoma
Zachary M. Drouin, 26, Olalla
Dominic J. McGill, 27, Lynnwood
Reid A. Weeks, 64, Woodland
Noah A. LaFountaine, 22, Bremerton
Jason C. Steele, 46, Seattle
Travan T. Tagaloa, 33, Bremerton
B. A. Youngblood Simpson, 26, Bremerton
Jimmy S. Howard, 46, Bremerton
“The number of arrests made during this operation is extremely disappointing,” said Bremerton Police Department Chief Jim Burchett. “I hope that someday we conduct an operation like this and no one responds. Until that time, we will continue taking proactive steps to keep our kids safe, including partnering with the Washington State Patrol Missing and Exploited Children Task Force in the outstanding work they do in protecting children from predators.”
Anyone with information related to the suspects listed, or information leading to the identity of victims potentially involved in these cases please contact MECTF at email@example.com.
“The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office will continue targeting those persons who engage in victimizing the most vulnerable members of our communities, our children, through sexual abuse and human trafficking,” said Kitsap County Sheriff Gary Simpson. “Working as part of the WSP task force optimizes our investigative and enforcement capabilities ten-fold, which assists us in holding these perpetrators accountable for their actions.”
The collaborative effort involving more than 60 dedicated law enforcement officers, agents, and staff led to the success of this operation. Those agencies involved include:
Federal Bureau of Investigation’s South Sound Child Exploitation Task Force
Homeland Security Investigations
Naval Criminal Investigative Service
Bremerton Police Department
West Sound Narcotics Enforcement Team
Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office
Jefferson County Sherriff’s Office
