‘Keeps me up at night’: fear of serial killer petrifies California communities

Serial killer frightens California communityKimberly Warmsley does not remember the last time a string of homicides so deeply affected her community as the seven slayings that have rocked the cities of Stockton and Oakland.

“All of this keeps me up at night,” said Warmsley, who serves as a city council member in the northern California city of Stockton. “It’s caused some of our residents, especially in our Hispanic community, to be a little disturbed and uneasy.”

Authorities said this month that a serial killer was probably responsible for the shootings of six people in Stockton and one in Oakland since April 2021. Ballistics tests and some surveillance video have linked the shootings – nearly 70 miles apart – and Stockton’s police chief, Stanley McFadden, called the shooter “mission-oriented”. Officials have not said whether they believe there’s a motive behind the killings or if victims had been targeted, and have not provided a detailed description of the shooter, but five of the victims were Latino men ranging from ages 21 to 54, which has left the community reeling.


District Attorney To Review All Cases Handled By Cop Who Planned Charlottesville Nazi Rally

Officer John Donnelly

A Massachusetts prosecutor has promised to review all cases handled by police Officer John Donnelly after a HuffPost report exposed Donnelly’s role in planning the deadly 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Middlesex County District Attorney Marina Ryan announced Friday that her office is now “thoroughly reviewing any pending or closed cases” in which Donnelly, a patrolman in Woburn, Massachusetts, was involved.

“We will be issuing a discovering notice disclosing this matter to defense counsel on those cases,” Ryan said in a statement. “That notice has already been added to our publicly available list of officers subject to exculpatory evidence disclosure.”

On Thursday, HuffPost published a report detailing how Donnelly, 33, was among hundreds of white supremacists who descended on Charlottesville in August 2017 for a “Unite the Right” rally, terrorizing the town while chanting slogans such as “Jews will not replace us” and violently attacking counterprotesters. The bloody weekend culminated with a neo-Nazi driving his car into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer.


Hall of Fame reliever, Cy Young Award winner Bruce Sutter dies at 69

Bruce Sutter dies at 69

When Bruce Sutter began experimenting with the split-fingered fastball, he wasn't looking for a path to Cooperstown. He was just hoping to save his career.

"I wouldn't be here without that pitch," Sutter said shortly before his Hall of Fame induction in 2006. "My other stuff was A-ball, Double-A at best. The split-finger made it equal."

Sutter, the full-bearded closer who paid for his own elbow surgery as a low minor leaguer and later pioneered the sharp-dropping pitch that came to dominate big league hitters for decades, died Thursday. He was 69.

Sutter was recently diagnosed with cancer and in hospice surrounded by his family, one of Sutter's three sons, Chad, told The Associated Press. The Baseball Hall of Fame said Bruce Sutter died in Cartersville, Georgia.

Five people, including a police officer, in NC shooting

A North Carolina mayor announced that five people, including a police officer, were killed in a shooting in a residential area on Thursday.

Raleigh Mayor Mary-Ann Baldwin told reporters that multiple people were shot on the Neuse River greenway trail around 5pm, and that the police department told her around 8pm that the suspect had been “contained” at a residence in the area.

Numerous police vehicles and multiple ambulances had swarmed the Hedingham neighborhood starting in the late afternoon, and officers remained in place for hours during an apparent manhunt. Details of what happened remained scant by early evening.

“State and local officers are on the ground and working to stop the shooter and keep people safe,” Governor Roy Cooper had tweeted shortly before 7pm ET.


Parkland shooter gets life in prison for deadliest US high school massacre

Parkland shooter gets life

A Florida jury on Thursday recommended life in prison for a former student who murdered 17 people in the nation’s deadliest high school shooting.

Nikolas Cruz, 24, killed 14 students and three staff members at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland on Valentine’s Day 2018, shooting into numerous classrooms with an AR-15 style assault rifle during the six-minute rampage and wounding 17 more.

The sentence of life without parole, now a formality, will be imposed at a hearing on 1 November after victim impact statements are given, circuit court judge Elizabeth Scherer ruled. Prosecutors were seeking the death penalty.

The jury of seven men and five women returned their verdict after seven and a half hours of deliberations, following a 60-day trial in which Cruz’s defense team argued his actions were the result of mental illness and brain damage caused by fetal alcohol syndrome.

James BrennandThe 17-year-old who was shot while eating a hamburger in his car by a former San Antonio police officer was not driving a stolen vehicle, contrary to what the officer said he suspected when he approached the car, a police official said.

Erik Cantu remains in critical condition Wednesday, according to his family.

“Erik is still on life-support and is non-responsive but his oxygen levels are showing an improvement. We are being patient and optimistic that better health is coming,” the family said in a statement through lawyer Brian Powers. "Please continue to keep Erik in your thoughts and prayers.”

Rookie officer James Brennand, 27, who was fired in the days after the shooting and arrested on two counts of aggravated assault by a public servant on Tuesday, is out on $200,000 bail.


Ron DeSantis investigated over migrant transfer from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard

Di Santis being investigated

The US treasury department is investigating whether the Florida governor, Ron DeSantis, improperly used funds to transport migrants from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard on chartered flights.

The Treasury Office of Inspector General (TIG) is inquiring into whether DeSantis used the interest earned on funds from the coronavirus state and local fiscal recovery funds (SLFRF) program that his state received as part of Biden’s American Rescue Plan.

The intended use of SLFRF was to support state and local response to and recovery from the Covid public health emergency.

DeSantis defended his decision, arguing that the migrants had intentions to come to Florida, despite having no evidence for such a claim. The Republican governor is facing legal challenges for his stunt, including a class-action lawsuit from the migrants he transported who believe they were purposefully misled into boarding the flights.
