FBI: Amazon drivers part of major theft ring

A theft ring in Washington state sold millions of dollars’ worth of stolen goods on Amazon.com in the past six years, and a pair of contract Amazon delivery drivers was involved, recently unsealed federal court documents show. According to a search warrant affidavit unsealed in U.S. District Court in Seattle and reviewed by The Associated Press, two storefront businesses posing as pawn shops bought the goods from shoplifters, then had the items shipped to Amazon warehouses, where they were stored until sold online. Entities associated with the alleged ringleader did at least $10 million in sales on Amazon since 2013,…

US Police Have Killed Over 1,200% More Citizens Than Mass Shooters Since 2015

Tragically, in America, mass shootings — in which murdering psychopaths go on rampages in public spaces — have claimed the lives of 339 people since 2015. While this number is certainly shocking and far too high, during this same time frame, police in America have claimed the lives of 4,355 citizens. While some of these citizens were armed and dangerous, others were innocent, unarmed, and include small children. Daniel Shaver was one of these people whose life was brought to a screeching halt as he begged on his knees for police not to shoot him. Despite being innocent and unarmed,…

“It’s Going to Be Staggering, the Amount of Names”: As the Jeffrey Epstein Case Grows More Grotesque, Manhattan and DC Brace for Impact

The Jeffrey Epstein case is an asteroid poised to strike the elite world in which he moved. No one can yet say precisely how large it is. But as the number of women who’ve accused the financier (at least, that’s what he claimed to be) of sexual assault grows to grotesque levels—there are said to be more than 50 women who are potential victims—a wave of panic is rippling through Manhattan, DC, and Palm Beach, as Epstein’s former friends and associates rush to distance themselves, while gossiping about who might be ensnared. Donald Trump’s labor secretary, Alexander Acosta, architect of…

England: Knife Crime Hits New Record High

Knife crime has hit a new record high in England and Wales, rising 8% on the previous year new figures show. “The figures for police-recorded crime revealed there were 43,516 police-recorded offences involving a knife or sharp instrument, which is the highest since comparable records began in 2011,” reports Sky News. As I have relentlessly argued, the causes of this epidemic are easily identifiable. – The scaling back of “stop and search” because it’s “racist”. – The ongoing emasculation of UK police forces who are being trained that mean words and ‘hate crime’ is more important than people dying. –…

Jeffrey Epstein’s Case Raises Questions About Royal Family Pedophilia & Elite Ritualistic Abuse of Children

Child sex abuse among the global elite is extremely rampant. This no doubt makes those who aren’t really aware of it wonder: Why is this not more well-known? Well, the answer to that is simple, it’s the same reason why so many other ‘happenings’ on planet Earth go virtually unknown, and that’s because we have been relying on a small group of very powerful and wealthy people and the corporations they run for information about what is happening on our planet. We are constantly being spoon-fed lies by mainstream media. There are a number of examples to choose from, and…

A serial child molester and abuser, who abused over two dozen children received just 30 days in jail as a man who helped people with a plant rots in a cage.

If ever you feel that the state has your interests in mind when they provide their mandatory “protection” through this system of law enforcement, consider the following scenario which completely negates that idea. When a system lets a serial child sexual abuser go free while locking someone in a cage for selling a plant—that system does not have your interests in mind. A day care owner convicted of abusing over two dozen children — many of them sexually — will spend just 30 days in jail after taking a plea deal in her case. Kimberly Hignite was arrested last year…

Ex-Fox & Friends host, accused of a Ponzi scheme that turned Indianapolis real-estate investors into slumlords, moves to Portugal

Clayton Morris — a former host of Fox & Friends — was part owner of Oceanpointe, a company that sold turnkey landlord services in Indianapolis to investors who could send Oceanpointe money, which the company would invest in properties that they would repair and rent out. Investors in the scheme — mostly out of towners, many of them attracted by Morris’s Youtube videos promising great returns with no work on their part — say it was a Ponzi scheme and that Morris and his partner Bert Whalen did substandard repairs that left investors in the position of being slumlords who…

Huge Child Porn Sharing Discovered On Pentagon PCs – Hundreds of Employees Implicated

(Editor’s Note: A retired Army two-star general is connected to this investigation. He repeatedly raped his own daughter. A link to the Army Times article is at the bottom of the page.) A bill to stop the sharing of child pornography on Pentagon computers is being contemplated by Congress. This is an issue that’s been known about for a decade or longer. Who is doing it? Where are the children coming from? Who is filming and how has this been allowed to continue? Child pornography as well as the trafficking of women and children are some of the biggest issues…

R. Kelly Indicted on Federal Kidnapping, Racketeering and Child Sex-Related Charges in NYC; Separate New Charges Also Filed in Chicago

R&B singer R. Kelly has been federally charged with racketeering, kidnapping, forced labor and sexual exploitation of a child in a sweeping New York indictment unsealed in Brooklyn Friday, hours after prosecutors filed a 13-count federal indictment charging him with new sex crimes in Chicago.  The five-count superseding indictment (read it below) unsealed in 18 pages of court documents alleges Kelly and members of his entourage recruited women and girls to “engage in illegal sexual activity with the singer. It says Kelly and his managers, bodyguards and other assistants picked out women and girls at concerts and other venues and arranged for them…

CHIRAQ: Dozens Of Mercedes “Totaled, Stripped Of Parts” After 75 Cars Stolen From Chicago Ride-Sharing Company

Ridesharing company Car2Go experienced a significant theft of its high end cars, including dozens of Mercedes CLA sedans and GLA sport utility vehicles, on what should have otherwise been a dull Monday in April in Chicago, according to Bloomberg. Demand for Car2Go’s high end vehicles mysteriously spiked one Monday and, instead of these Benz’ being returned, they wound up congregated together on several blocks in West Chicago. When the company’s employees went to retrieve the vehicles, they found a group of thieves had claimed them as their own. Some blocked the vehicles in to prevent repossession while others threatened the company’s employees. And…

Former JonBenét Ramsey photographer indicted on child porn charges

An Oakridge man has been indicted by a secret Lane County grand jury on charges related to a yearlong child pornography investigation that landed the man in jail earlier this month. Randall DeWitt Simons, 66, was taken into custody July 2 by Springfield police, who had been assisting Oakridge police in investigating a July 2018 report from A&W that someone had been using the restaurant’s WiFi to download inappropriate and concerning images.

Billionaire opioid kingpin convicted in massive bribery, racketeering conspiracy

Almost two years after he was arrested and charged for running a criminal drug cartel, opioid kingpin John Kapoor of Insys Therapeutics has finally been convicted of running a nationwide bribery and racketeering conspiracy. According to reports, the federal government has found the billionaire pharma executive, along with four of his co-defendants, guilty of illegally paying off doctors to prescribe opioid pharmaceuticals such as fentanyl, which directly contributed to the current opioid epidemic. In declaring Kapoor guilty of this crime, federal prosecutors sent a clear message that drug companies will no longer be getting away with conspiring to illicitly distribute…

Killer Cop Rehired, Gets Pension for Murdering Innocent Unarmed Dad Begging for His Life

In a move which will likely infuriate those who seek to hold police accountable for often murderous actions, former Mesa Police Officer Philip Brailsford (as TFTP predicted) was rehired. He then immediately retired from law enforcement winning the equivalent of a lottery jackpot in retirement earnings. Brailsford, known as a “killer cop” in accountability circles, blew away Daniel Shaver at La Quinta Inn in Mesa, AZ on Jan 18, 2016. As TFTP consistently reported, Shaver was the unarmed victim of an officer-involved murder whereby a guest at the hotel called 911 to report seeing a man with a gun. It…

Major Red Flags Are Causing Many To Doubt Whether Justice Will Be Done In The Jeffrey Epstein Sex Scandal

It won’t just be Jeffrey Epstein that will be on trial in the months ahead.  As this scandal unfolds, the entire U.S. legal system will be on trial, and if justice does not prevail many Americans will lose faith in the system for good.  And of course the rest of the world will be watching too, and so what are they supposed to think about us if we are not able to put Epstein and all of his dirty friends in prison?  As I detailed in part three of this series, the evidence against Jeffrey Epstein and his partners in…

Democratic donor Ed Buck accused of human trafficking and revenge porn after man dies in his home

Prominent political activist Ed Buck is facing new legal troubles as the mother of a man who died in his home has filed an amended civil suit accusing Buck of human trafficking and engaging in revenge porn, CBS Los Angeles reports. “The new amendment is about making sure no box is left unchecked when it comes to all of the crimes that Ed Buck has committed,” Jasmyne Cannick, an advocate for the family of 26-year-old Gemmel Moore who was found dead of a drug overdose in Buck’s home in 2017.

Before SHTF, Let’s Revisit Jeffrey Epstein’s Little Black Book

With the Saturday arrest of Jeffrey Epstein – who is reportedly offering to name elite pedophiles in exchange for leniency, a leaked copy of the billionaire sex predator’s “little black book” may provide some insight into some very rich individuals who should be nervous right about now.  The book was smuggled out of Epstein’s residence by his former house manager, Alfredo Rodriguez, who was busted trying to sell it in 2009 for $50,000 – only to get caught, charged with obstruction of justice, and die in prison after 18 months from a ‘long illness.’  According to an FBI affidavit, Rodriguez described the address book and the…

Epstein Prosecutors Say Nude Photos Of Underage Girls Found During Manhattan Raid

Update: Prosecutors alleged during a Monday morning press conference that they discovered nude photos of underage girls during a raid at Epstein’s Manhattan mansion.  Prosecutors told reporters that they will seek Epstein’s detention pending trial due to flight risk, and that the case was “assisted by some excellent investigative journalism,” likely in reference to the Miami Herald‘s ongoing coverage of Epstein. Prosecutors unsealed an indictment against billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein, revealing two counts of child molestation involving “dozens of minor girls” as young as 14 between 2002 and 2005 in New York and Florida, according to Bloomberg.  Of note, this is separate from last…

Epstein is being detained in the same prison as El Chapo and facing 45 years behind bars…

Jeffrey Epstein famously bragged that he owned the largest home in New York City for years, but this weekend he found his way into an even bigger facility. The convicted pedophile, who is now facing federal sex trafficking charges, is being housed at the Metropolitan Correction Center in downtown Manhattan, the same facility as Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman.   He will make his first court appearance in Monday, at which time attorneys for the Southern District of New York will likely present the billionaire as a flight risk and ask that bail be denied in the case. The Daily Beast reports…

Jeffrey Epstein Documents Could Expose Powerful Politicians, Businessmen

Topline: A federal appeals court Wednesday ordered that 167 documents in a lawsuit that alleges famously well-connected financier Jeffrey Epstein participated in a sex-trafficking ring should be unsealed—and that many of his powerful friends could be named.   In its 27-page decision, the court cited the public’s right to access the case information outweighed the privacy of certain individuals, “including numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well‐known Prime Minister, and other world leaders.”  Virginia Guiffre (now Roberts) filed the lawsuit against Ghislane Maxwell, alleging that she had used her as part of a sex trafficking network of…

The arrest, by the FBI-NYPD Crimes Against Children Task Force, comes about 12 years after the 66-year-old financier essentially got a slap on the wrist for allegedly molesting dozens of underage girls in Florida. For more than a decade, Epstein’s alleged abuse of minors has been the subject of lawsuits brought by victims, investigations by local and federal authorities, and exposés in…

A Pregnant Woman in Alabama Was Shot in the Stomach and Miscarried. Now, Alabama Cops Are Charging Her With Manslaughter.

When expectant mother Marshae Jones was shot in the stomach last December, the 27-year-old woman survived, but her pregnancy did not. Now, Jones is behind bars and facing charges for the death of her five-month-old fetus.  On Wednesday, Jones was taken into custody after a jury in Jefferson County, Alabama, indicted her for manslaughter, according to Alabama newspaper group AL.com. She’ll be held in jail until her trial unless she can post a $50,000 bond. Meanwhile, the woman who shot Jones—23-year-old Ebony Jemison—is free. Police initially charged Jemison with manslaughter as well, but a grand jury did not indict.  Prosecutors allege…

Innocent Grandma Locked Up for Months Because Cops Thought Cotton Candy Was Meth

Monroe County, GA — An innocent grandma, Dasha Fincher, was kidnapped by police and thrown in a cage for months—not because she did anything wrong—but because police couldn’t tell the difference between cotton candy and meth. Now, this innocent new grandma is going after the police who did this to her as well as the company who manufacturers the dangerously inaccurate tests cops used to take her freedom. This gross negligence and kidnapping is all due to a flaw in the system stemming from prosecutors and police being unconcerned with actually testing evidence. A new report from CBS uncovered this…

D.C.’s Metro Is A Mess. Today the FBI Raided the Home of a Transit Board Member in Corruption Probe

It’s been a bad few months for the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA)—the agency in charge of the D.C. area’s buses and trains—which has been wracked by falling ridership, prolonged station shutdowns, and now a federal corruption probe. Early Friday morning, the FBI raided the Georgetown home of D.C.

The raid comes one day after the publication of a damning legal memo—prepared by law firm Schulte, Roth,…

Owners of Toronto web-hosting company charged in massive child pornography bust

A years-long investigation into an online “big box store” for child pornography has led to the arrest of five people associated with the Toronto-based web hosting company where the site stored its “horrific” content, Ontario Provincial Police say. The investigation, dubbed Project Greenwell, began in October, 2012 after Toronto police received numerous tips alerting them to the existence of a child pornography website that could be traced back to the Toronto-based web hosting company YesUp Media.

US-backed Venezuela opposition caught embezzling ‘humanitarian aid’ cash

Millions of dollars raised for “freedom and democracy” in Venezuela ended up spent in Colombia by the aides of US-backed opposition leader Juan Guaido, and were exposed by Colombian spies in yet another blow to his cause. Guaido declared himself “interim president” of Venezuela in January and was recognized by the US and many of its Latin American allies, but has repeatedly failed to seize power from President Nicolas Maduro in Caracas. Now he seems farther from that goal than ever, as several of his aides have been named by Colombian intelligence in a leak revealing the embezzlement of US…

Police Claim Officers Acted ‘Okay’ in Video of Cops Beating Man Over Loud Music

Syracuse, NY — In the land of the free, any number of innocent actions — which millions of people do every day — can get you ticketed, arrested, beaten or even killed. For walking across the street improperly police will beat you. For dark window tint, police may kill you. And, as the following incident proves, for playing loud music, police will drag you from your car, beat, and arrest you. All of this violence, brutality, and death almost always stems from officers “fearing for their lives.” It also shows how the overwhelming majority of these cases go unpunished. Syracuse Police…

Cops Refused to Fulfill City’s Illegal Ticket Quota, So City Council Fired Entire Department

Ridgetop, TN — The town of Ridgetop, Tenn. made a rather substantial move this week in an attempt to save money, so they dissolved the entire police department. The decision to fire all the cops happened on Monday night, and yet the town has not yet descended into utter chaos. Imagine that. The decision to dissolve the department happened Monday during a special-called meeting to decide how to save money after controversy arose about writing tickets. “It was all budget,” said Ridgetop Mayor Tony Reasoner. “We can’t afford it. Hopefully, and I’m going to float this idea with the board,…

Pastor Convicted of Repeatedly Raping Adopted Daughter Gets Light Sentence Because of “Longtime Ministry”

Former Tennessee Pastor David Richards received a light sentence after being convicted of repeatedly raping his fourteen-year-old adopted daughter. After all, nothing says “good Christian man” like rape and incest. Richards, who is also a former caseworker with Smoky Mountain Children’s home in Sevierville, TN, was found guilty in Knox County by a jury of five men and seven women in February 2019 on nine felony counts, including rape, incest and sexual battery by an authority figure concerning Amber Richards, his (then) 14-year-old adopted daughter. Judge Steven Sword, in what many feel is a disgraceful miscarriage of justice, sentenced Richards…

‘Investigation’ Finds Cop Did Nothing Wrong When He Shot 11yo Girl in the Back With Taser

Cincinnati, OH — Last year, TFTP reported a disturbing story out of Cincinnati that shocked the country after a police officer tasered an 11-year-old girl in the back after he suspected her of stealing food. Since then, officer Kevin Brown was “disciplined” by his department, but never fired. He then became the subject of a criminal FBI investigation that his superiors called a politically motivated “assault on our cops.” And now, the propaganda by department has worked and the officer has been cleared. Officer Brown appealed his suspension and won after the court found it was totally acceptable to taser…

A retired peace officer with experience in training police officers in the use of force said the Vallejo police officers’ fatal shooting of rap artist Willie McCoy, 20, in a Taco Bell drive-thru in February was reasonable and in line with modern training and police practices,  the city attorney said. City Attorney Claudia Quintana referred to a May 17 report by Dave Blake of Brentwood-based Blake Consulting. Quintana posted Blake’s report and a news release about it on Vallejo’s website Monday. Quintana said the report details the legal background and the reasons behind Blake’s conclusions. But she said it is important to realize that there is…

Hard Time: Stanford Sailing Coach Gets One Day In Jail For Role In College Admissions Scandal

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal yesterday – ahead of today’s sentencing – Stanford University head sailing coach John Vandemoer called his role in the college admissions cheating scandal, “the biggest mistake of his life.” Having pleaded guilty – admitting to taking bribes from Mr. Singer (the college scandal’s mastermind) for Stanford’s sailing program in exchange for flagging some of the college counselor’s clients as recruited athletes, even though they weren’t competitive sailors, and therefore giving them a boost in the admissions process – Vandemoer claims that while he understands now the illegality of the arrangements, he didn’t…

Cop Arrested for Forcing Woman to Perform Sex Act With Her Infant to Make Child Porn

Over the past few years, the Free Thought Project has reported on utterly horrific crimes perpetrated by police officers against society’s most vulnerable. From children to the elderly, no demographic is left safe. However, a case out of Iberville Parish in Louisiana is at the top of the list for the most disturbing things we’ve ever seen. An on-duty cop forced a mother to perform oral sex on her one-year-old son — while he filmed it to make child porn — by threatening to arrest her if she refused. Iberville Parish sheriff’s deputy Shaderick Jones was serving an arrest warrant…

Student Uses Snapchat’s ‘Gender Switch’ Filter to Nab Cop Allegedly Looking to Hook Up With Teen Girl

A San Francisco Bay Area college student used a Snapchat filter to pretend he was an underage girl online and take down a San Mateo police officer allegedly looking to hook up on Tinder. Ethan, 20, told police he had a female friend who had been molested as a child and went online to create an undercover profile to identify possible pedophiles.

US Companies to Face Lawsuit Over UK Grenfell Tower Inferno

(CN) – Lawyers and judges in Philadelphia, and not just those in London, will have a say over whether American companies can face liability for an inferno at an apartment tower in London that killed 72 people and injured about 70 others in 2017.

60 People, Including 54 Medical Professionals, Charged in Largest U.S. Opioid Prescription Bust

In 2016, a total of 42,249 people died from an opioid drug overdose in the United States. And while I can’t argue that the number is outrageous, when I read it the first time it had very little significance to me. But then I got to thinking. Back in 2016, I was a CNA and worked regularly with one of the nurses. He was a quirky, middle-aged guy with an expressive face and a good sense of humor. One Monday I came into work to hear that he had passed away over the weekend. The cause? Accidental heroin overdose. And…

German nurse convicted of killing 87 patients; liked putting them into cardiac arrest

German nurse Niels Hoegel liked to inject his patients with overdoses of heart medication and other drugs to put them in cardiac arrest because he liked how it felt to resuscitate them. Sometimes he was able to bring them back, but in at least 87 cases they died. He is believed to be modern Germany’s most prolific serial killer. A court in the city of Oldenburg recently found Hoegel, 42, guilty of murdering 85 patients, aged 34 to 96. He was sentenced to life in prison. He had previously been convicted of two other murders. The presiding judge, Sebastian Buerhmann,…

Cancer Patient Sentenced to Prison for Buying THC Edibles as Treatment

Chicago, IL — Thomas J. Franzen, 37, has never been arrested or committed a crime before he was diagnosed with stage three testicular cancer that has spread to both his lungs and abdominal cavity last year. However, because government claims the authority to throw people in jail over a plant, Franzen’s self-medication process for his cancer has now landed him in prison—for the next four years.
