Wanted! alleged white supremacists accused of shooting State prison Chief!

Colorado authorities suspect two white supremacists may have been involved in the fatal shooting of a state prison chief that answered the door to his house, only to be greeted with gunfire.

WANTED!

WANTED! The alleged White Supremacist!

The alleged white supremacists

The alleged white supremacists, 47-year-old James Franklin Lohr and 31-year-old Thomas James Guolee, are believed to be part of a prison gang called the 211 Crew, according to a Reuters report based on statements made by Lieutenant Jeff Kramer, a spokesman for Colorado’s El Paso County Sheriff’s Office.

The murder victim, prison chief Tom Clements, was shot dead when he answered the door to his home located 45 miles from Denver on March 19. Judicial officials on Monday announced that Evan Spencer Ebel, a former convict and alleged member of the 211 Crew, was the main suspect involved in the shooting.

Due to a clerical mistake, Evans had been mistakenly released from prison in January, even though he had only served part of his sentence.

“It sounds like a horrific oversight,Pueblo County Commissioned Buffie McFadyen told AP, referring to the mistake that led to the man’s early release. “It’s tragic clerical error.”

After killing Clements, shooting a pizza delivery driver on March 17, and engaging in a roadside gun battle with Texas policemen on March 21, Ebel himself was found dead. His weapon, a 9 mm Smith & Wesson, was linked to the fatal shooting of Clements just two days earlier.

Police are now searching for Lohr and Guolee, who they believe might have been collaborating with Ebel in the death of the state’s corrections director last month, since phone records show both men communicating with Ebel in the hours leading up to the shooting. Both of the men were already wanted on warrants unrelated to the Clements murder.

“Because of the circumstances where you have violent folks who are willing to execute a DOC official, we don’t want to underestimate these guys,” Kramer told the Denver Post. Colorado investigators issued an alert Wednesday, warning law enforcement to be on the lookout for the two white supremacists that they believe to be armed and dangerous.

Authorities told USA TODAY that the men are not “suspects” of the white supremacist prison gang, but that they are “known associates”. They believe the men have fled the state and could be headed towards Texas or Nevada, based on unconfirmed reports about their whereabouts.

The white supremacist prison gang known as the 211 Crew is considered dangerous, and authorities are investigating whether leaders of the group ordered a hit on Clements. Benjamin Davis, founder of the 211 Crew, is currently serving 108 years in prison for a racketeering conviction, in addition to a 30-year prison sentence he received for a 1995 robbery and first-degree assault. An unnamed prosecutor told the Denver Post that Davis has been convicted with conspiracy to commit at least four assaults on various people. After authorities brought up his name in connection to the Clements murder investigation, he was placed in administrative segregation at the Buena Vista Correctional Complex.

Authorities are also investigating whether members of the 211 Crew had any involvement in the January 31 murder of Kaufman County assistant district attorney Mark Hasse, 57, who was shot and killed while exiting his vehicle on his way to work. Witnesses told local police that they saw two suspects leave the scene.

“Investigators are looking at a lot of different possibilities,” Kramer told AP in regards to the gang’s connection to the Clements murder. “We are not stepping out and saying it’s a hit or it’s not a hit. We’re looking at all possible motives.”

James Holmes, 25, accused murderer at a Colorado Movie Theater in court!

The accused murderer at a Colorado Movie Theater can be subjected to tests with the “truth drug” if found having mental problems to avoid a harsh sentence, reported the local ABC station in Denver.

The trial judge, William Sylvester, warned today that if James Holmes, 25, claims insanity and plead not guilty, something that may happen tomorrow, must undergo a polygraph test or psychiatric examinations “narcoanalíticos” to determine whether he is lucid and lies.

The so-called “truth serum”, which is usually a barbiturate compound, helps the person to recall and in the case of Holmes can be used to determine if indeed the young man was unable to discern when he burst into a cinema in the town of Aurora during the premiere of the latest film “Batman” and killed 12 people and wounded 70 others.

The defense believes these techniques are unconstitutional and has criticized the laws of the State of Colorado for allowing them, and by not respecting medical confidentiality if the defendant claims mental illness.

The judge said that if Holmes is finally declared mentally ill, something that would allow detention to be much milder, he must meet all psychiatric analysis and questioning with “medically appropriate drugs.”

Holmes, who could face the death penalty, he planned the attack carefully and filled his apartment with booby traps in an apparent attempt to mislead the police and to act with impunity at the movie theater.

Re-hashing the Marijuana Business Theory

On Nov. 6, three U.S. states legalized the consumption, production, distribution and sale of marijuana for recreational purposes. Thanks to the voters of Washington, Colorado and Oregon, smoking marijuana in the United States gained ground.

Economic theory seems to be clear: produce drugs legally removed from the criminal business and thus limits their profits

Economic theory seems to be clear: produce drugs legally and removed from the criminal business and thus limits their profits

Beyond the debate of opinions and conflicting reasons and speaking purely in economic terms, the legalization of marijuana in the U.S. would affect Mexican drug traffickers.

So says Alejandro Hope, a researcher at the Mexican Institute for Competitiveness (IMCO) and author of the document “If neighbors legalized”, which claims that the legalization of marijuana in the U.S. would generate losses to Mexican cartels for billions dollars.

It happens that if Americans can start buying, cannabis legally produce and market, the market for Mexican gangs engaged in this business for decades, begin to fade.

According to the document, thanks to conditions that protect the enervating legal in several U.S. states, could increase production to meet most of its domestic demand with domestic production, in this scenario, the drug trade in Mexico would receive the biggest shock suffered structural from the massive arrival of cocaine in the late eighties.

In theory, buy marijuana without criminalizing the consumer or the chain of production and distribution would result in a substantial loss of income for Mexican criminal organizations drastically changing their business model and method of operation.

If one considers that between 40 and 70 percent of the marijuana sold in the streets of America is Mexican legalization uniquely affect the drug traffickers ‘national’.

Hope explained that the creation of a legal market for this unnerving in neighboring northern country, represent the movement of illegal exports of marijuana from Mexico.

The IMCO conducted an investigation based on specifying the cost of transporting cannabis from Mexico to 126 U.S. cities and from states that have just legalize consumption.

The results indicate that 110 people legalized marijuana is cheaper than from Mexico illegally creating a pretty daunting scenario for Mexico’s drug cartels engaged in the drug trade.

The legalization of marijuana in three U.S. states for recreational purposes would represent a significant loss for producers and Mexican cartels as it is estimated that illegal groups in Mexico, leaving would receive between 300 and 800 thousand thousand million annually by state .

In Washington legalization could mean a drop of about one thousand 300 million dollars in export revenues of Mexican drug cartels, in Colorado will lose a thousand and $ 400 million in Oregon, the decline would be even stronger with a fall one thousand 800 million dollars.

As a result of this new scenario, it is expected also to have a strong impact on this herb producing areas, but mainly in the “Golden Triangle” (Sinaloa, Durango and Chihuahua) strategic area where marijuana production is more export oriented.

A week after the controversial vote, Mexico and three Central American countries, called on the OAS to discuss the implications and the impact they will have on the region the recent cases of legalization of the herb.

The reactions of the recent study published by the Mexican Institute of Competitiveness, caused various reactions in the United States. Thomas J. Gorman, Head of the High Intensity Drug Trafficking of Rocky Mountain, said that Mexican cartels would simply take their produce to the north.

“If I were a member of a cartel and knew that the states of Colorado and Washington legalized, get a couple of strawmen and do my business in those states. Why not? “Asked Gorman.

Meanwhile Betty Aldworth, legal director of the “Campaign to regulate marijuana like alcohol,” in Colorado, was cautious about the conclusions of the study.

Aldworth said that somehow, IMCO research supports what your group has said in the sense that if it regulates and controls the marijuana market, would end the flow of profits to the Mexican cartels.

Meanwhile, Felipe Calderón, President of Mexico, added that these processes are legalizing marijuana “a paradigm shift on the part of nations with respect to the current international system.”

The truth is that with the legalization of the production, consumption, trade and distribution of marijuana will force the Mexican cartels to change their modus operandi and criminal redirect their efforts to recover the decline will mean this controversial measure.

Legalizing marijuana in the U.S. a reverse affect on Mexico!

Mexican drug cartels would potentially lose 20 to 30 percent of revenue, because the Sinaloa cartel would be most affected, would lose up to 50 percent

Legalizing marijuana in the U.S. would affect the Sinaloa Cartels Production!

The legalization of marijuana in some states in the U.S. would significantly reduce Mexico’s drug revenues, providing the largest financial shock in decades, said the Mexican Institute for Competitiveness ( IMCO).

The UN Security Director, Alejandro Hope, estimated at a press conference that revenue would potentially fall 20 to 30 percent from drug trafficking, although the Sinaloa cartel, which would be the most affected, would lose up to 50 percent, was considered.

In his opinion, “this would be favorable to Mexico, in the sense that it would be the biggest financial blow to cartels in decades.”

On 6 November, the states of Washington, Colorado and Oregon, in the United States, shall make consideration of its voters a series of initiatives that, if passed, would legalize the possession, production, distribution and sale of marijuana for recreational use .

The manager explained that this measure is approved must await the reactions of the U.S. government, because the rest of the states will remain illegal activity and could go to court alleging unconstitutional invasion of powers, and that would be a violation of international treaties in the art.

However, he stressed that the initiative achieved and implemented as proposed, would create a legal market for cannabis (marijuana scientific name), which in turn displace the product placed by drug trafficking.

He said the marijuana that would occur in the United States would be of higher quality because it has a high content of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive component of the drug.

Based on the assumptions made by the IMCO, explained the manager, a pound of Mexican marijuana sold today in New York over three thousand dollars, would be well above the $ 408 billion it would cost a kilogram of the drug legalized in the United States.

The Mexican narco would have a market share of 36.5 percent marijuana in Washington, Colorado 37.9 percent and 48.9 percent in Oregon, while decreasing potential would be 22.7, 23.5 and 30.4 percent, respectively.

For Alejandro Hope, would have a greater impact in terms of jobs, because marijuana is more labor intensive than other drugs, although it is difficult to estimate whether this staff would be absorbed by other illegal and violent.

In response, the Mexican government considered that will launch alternative development programs in production areas, and monitor the traffic potential in reverse, ie, from the U.S. to Mexico.

Former governor of Illinois Rod Blagojevich gets 14 years prison sentence!

The former governor of Illinois Rod Blagojevich today went to prison to serve a sentence of 14 years for trying to profit from the Senate seat Barack Obama vacated to assume the American presidency.

Blagojevich, 55, arrived Thursday afternoon at the federal prison in Englewood, 24 miles south of Denver (Colorado), after lunch at a local fast food restaurant under the watchful eye of television cameras.

The Democratic former governor was convicted on December 7 of the 18 charges against him, including trying to sell or profit from the ancient seat Obama occupied in the U.S. Senate.

Illinois state law allowed Blagojevich to appoint the new senator and, despite rumors of corruption and the reluctance of the Senate, appointed candidate Ronald Burris, who would later admit that the former governor demanded money in exchange for the seat.

The prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald was reportedly accused of having used his position to raise funds in exchange for signing legislation or award of contracts.

That charge, which joined other for soliciting bribes and mail fraud, led to the resignation of Blagojevich in 2009 and the subsequent opening of the judicial process.

According to federal regulation, Blagojevich will have to meet at least 12 of the 14-year sentence, for that good behavior discount allowed 54 days per year.

On arrival at the prison, the former governor went through a thorough inspection and subsequent psychological and medical evaluation, according to the local station KDVR.

Denver; 80 people arrested drug trafficking

80 people involved in drug trafficking arrested in Denver

80 people involved in drug trafficking arrested in Denver

More than 500 federal agents and local police participated in an operation today in the Denver metropolitan area which culminated in the arrest of 80 people suspected of bringing large quantities of drugs from Mexico to Colorado via California, reported federal prosecutors.

According to Attorney John Walsh, the operation was “the largest in the history of Denver” and allowed to seize 26 kilos of cocaine, a kilo of cocaine, “crack”, almost half a kilo of methamphetamine, over 400 thousand dollars in cash and 12 firearms, including two assault rifles.

Walsh said that in the operation involved agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and officers from several jurisdictions that are part of the Denver Metro Drug Enforcement Group and effective police departments Aurora and Denver.

“These combined actions allowed dismantle four distinct groups, but related,” Walsh said during a press conference in Aurora.

He said that investigations into this case began in December 2009 and ended recently when a special jury ruled seven counts of drug trafficking and other crimes against 97 people, of which 17 have not yet been arrested.

Most arrests were made in dozens of homes in Denver and surrounding areas, with no reported clashes or injuries. As a result of the arrests, 12 were under the care of child protective services.

The prosecutor reported that the drug entered from Mexico to California and then was transferred to Colorado. Although not revealed amounts, Walsh referred to “very substantial amounts” and “many kilos for the streets of Colorado.”

These drug trafficking activities were connected with a group of 25 gang members over the past two years committed at least 16 local bank robberies. The investigation of these assaults resulted in identification of many of those arrested today.

Because they face federal charges, the suspects could receive sentences of up to 10 years in prison and fines up to $ 10 million.

The official report does not provide names or nationalities of the detainees.
