The new unit will include 14 police officers, eight agents from the DEA, six from the ATF and three from the FBI. They will work together from an undisclosed location under leadership of city police Capt. Ed Kuntz, who formerly led the Crime Suppression Unit...................

Mandatory curfew, electronic monitoring and other pretrial conditions for defendants indicted on child pornography offenses are unconstitutional, a federal magistrate judge has ruled. Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge James Francis said portions of amendments to the Bail Reform Act of 1984 promulgated by the 2006 Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act violate the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment because they impose automatic restrictions on fundamental rights.

Police on Long Island say an off-duty New York City Police lieutenant has fatally shot his wife and then killed himself.

Suffolk County police say the couple's daughter dialed 911 shortly after 12:30 p.m. Monday and said that her father had just shot her mother.

Officers responding to the family's home in Centereach found the body of 46-year-old Elena Cole in an upstairs bedroom.

Police say she had been shot and stabbed by her husband, Francis Cole, a 48-year-old NYPD lieutenant. He was taken to a nearby hospital with a self-inflicted gunshot wound and later died.

An NYPD spokeswoman says Cole joined the department in April, 1990, and had been assigned to the 68th Precinct in Brooklyn.

A man may have tipped his intentions when he stood in line at an Ohio bank wearing a ski mask before staging a holdup. Police in Stow near Akron say 24-year-old Feliks Goldshtein of Highland Heights was arrested minutes later on Thursday following a brief car chase.

Police say the teller asked the man to take off the mask before being served. At that point the man displayed what turned out to be a toy gun and told the teller to give him all the money. He made off with an undisclosed amount.

Police Captain Rick Myers says it's unusual for a masked robber to wait in line at a bank

CA: San Francisco Surveillance Cameras Don’t Reduce Violent Crime, Study Finds

ACLU Press Release:

A report released today evaluating San Francisco's surveillance cameras concludes that the cameras have failed in their mission to reduce violent crime in the city. Independent researchers at the University of California Berkeley conducted an outside evaluation of the City's ill-advised video surveillance program and issued today's report.

In line with similar studies from around the world, the report finds that San Francisco's video surveillance cameras do not make people safer. The cameras fail to prevent or reduce violent crime, including homicide. The cameras also have no effect on drug offenses or prostitution.

The Brady Campaign has declared war on American gunowners. Their declaration can be found here. The relevant excerpt:

"Congress should enact strong legislation that closes the loopholes in the previous assault weapons statute and restricts civilian ownership of other weapons that were originally designed for military use, such as .50 caliber sniper rifles that have the range and power to bring down aircraft. High capacity ammunition magazines and armor-piercing bullets should be similarly restricted." . . .

Never have their desires been so naked, nor their appetites so omnivorous. Elmer Fudd . . .will now join us under the Greyhound as intended road kill.




 

WI: DNR to hunters: Hand over your guns on demand

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has a simple, blunt message for hunters in Wisconsin: When a DNR warden asks you to give up your legal firearm, do so, plain and simple, no matter what.

What's more, that goes for all citizens, the agency has asserted. Citizens with firearms, the DNR argues, should always do exactly what law enforcement officers tell them to do, regardless of the circumstances of the situation.

Despite a huge Democratic Senate majority, Eric Holder’s confirmation hearings are going to be difficult. He has a long record to defend. Whether it is his involvement and inconsistent statements about Bill Clinton’s pardon of fugitive financier Marc Rich’s pardon or his pushing Clinton’s clemency of the FALN terrorists or his failure to disclose his work for troubled Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich after Blagojevich's legal problems surfaced, he faces tough questions. But Holder’s nomination raises other questions about what President-elect Barack Obama claimed he believed during the campaign. Numerous times he promised that he supported an individual’s right to own guns and that he wouldn’t do anything to take away people’s guns.

UK: British Police set to step up hacking of home PCs

THE Home Office has quietly adopted a new plan to allow police across Britain routinely to hack into people's personal computers without a warrant.

The move, which follows a decision by the European Union’s council of ministers in Brussels, has angered civil liberties groups and opposition MPs. They described it as a sinister extension of the surveillance state which drives “a coach and horses” through privacy laws.

It will be easy for the cops to "get" anyone they want by "discovering" child porn, evidence of drug or gun dealing, etc, on "the perp's" computer. At least that is how it will be done in Amerika.

Suddenly, in full view of other holiday revelers traveling home, Officer Johannes Mehserle draws his pistol and shoots 22-year-old Oscar Grant III in the back. Camera-equipped cell phones on the scene captured the incident as it happened, putting the telling of the tale on YouTube and beyond the power of official spin.
Authorities are starting to clue in -- and to respond in ham-handed form. After Grant was shot, police tried to confiscate cell phones on the scene that had recorded the incident.
But almost everybody has a cell phone these days. They're small, and easy to conceal.
The revolution in journalism can't bring back the dead. But it can help to ensure that the guilty are held accountable and that the truth is widely known.

The National Rifle Association is again giving teens the chance to learn about Pennsylvania history and government. The NRA is accepting applications from students who want to be involved in its Y.E.S. — or Youth Education Summit — program. Participants travel to Harrisburg for an all-expenses-paid, three-day, four-night trip to tour the Capital, Governor's office and Supreme Court, meet state leaders, visit museums, hear presentations on the Game and Wildlife Code, take part in discussions and debates and more. There will be time spent on a shooting range, too. At a final banquet, one student will be chosen to attend the national Y.E.S. event in Washington on July 6-12.
 

CA: Man with guns at airport says he's law-abiding

LOS ANGELES — The man arrested at Los Angeles International Airport with a trunk full of guns and nearly 1,000 rounds of ammunition said Saturday that he is a law-abiding weapons enthusiast who had no idea he might be breaking the law.

A day after he was arrested for suspicion of felony transportation of an assault rifle, Phillip Dominguez said he's confident he'll be exonerated.

"I'm a law-abiding, taxpaying gun enthusiast. I have no felonies — up until now," Dominguez said.

Airport police saw it a little differently.

"In the post-Sept. 11 (2001) environment, it is well-known by weapon owners that airports and weapons simply do not mix," said Los Angeles Airport Police Chief George Centeno.
 

MT: [Second] Suit filed to kill new rule on guns in parks

“In a rush to judgment, as a result of political pressure, the outgoing administration failed to comply with the law,” said Tom Kiernan, “and did not offer adequate reasons to do so.”

Kiernan is president of the National Parks Conservation Association, which joined the Coalition of National Park Service Retirees in filing the challenge.

This latest lawsuit charges the Interior Department “adopted the gun rule with unwarranted haste, without following procedures required by law.” It also alleges the regulation change “is an affront to the national parks' missions and purposes, and a threat to the national parks' resources and values.”

Hollywood produces a great deal of garbage that looks upon firearms with disdain, propagating a message to millions of Americans that guns are evil and the people who own them are suspect.

Were it not for people like Clint Eastwood, there would be very little for the gun owner to like about many if not most of the films Hollywood releases.

What started out as a routine inspection of the truck uncovered a small arsenal of weaponry.

Early in the day, Castles said 37 guns were found. A final count revealed a smaller amount.

"After unpacking and counting all items, the total count is 10 handguns, five rifles, an antique black-powder musket, and nearly 1,000 rounds of ammunition were found in several boxes in the back of the truck," Castles said. "One of the handguns and the musket were loaded."...

The driver told police he was coming to the airport to pick someone up.

"As to what he was doing here at the airport, there's no indication that there was any overall evil intent," said Sgt. Jim Holcomb of the Los Angeles World Airport Police.

CA: Preventing Gun Violence in California is Paramount

At the end of each year we count up the homicides in major California cities and rightly try to gauge whether the actions each city is taking are reducing homicides or not. (See "Homicides in S.F.-Struggle Intensifies, Chronicle Jan. 2) But this valuable yearly ritual that we just completed can be misleading in two ways. First, it may lead us to think that the way to address the problem is essentially through local action. In fact, although local work to prevent gun violence is the work of angels and is critical, it is not enough. Without strong state and federal and state gun laws cities like San Francisco and Oakland are by in large doomed to follow national homicide trends.
 

Burris a Hypocrite on Guns

I don’t know a lot about Roland Burris, the pick of Illinois’ corrupt Governor to fill Obama’s vacant senate seat, but you have to be suspicious of anyone coming out of the Democratic political machine in that state. One thing I now know, though, is that he’s a typical, hypocritical politician:

Burris also made headlines in 1994 when it was revealed that while he advocated gun control and promoted a gun turn-in program, he was keeping a gun in his home.

“It’s a little, small thing,” he said of the gun. “I just have it there for safety. If I ban them, I’m going to be the first one to burn mine.”

He later gave up the weapon... Thanks to NBC Chicago, we now know it was a handgun:
 

Citizen Concealed Carry Concerns

In my column last month, I talked about some of the trends in the firearms industry and how they affected both individuals and their agencies. Interest in concealed carry is another area that has seen a significant increase in activity by ordinary citizens, presumably because of both the current economic situation and the political climate. People are concerned about a perceived increase in crimes of opportunity, as well as more aggressive behavior by criminals. Applications for concealed carry licenses in Florida, for example, have sky-rocketed and firearms safety training classes generally fill up rapidly.
