What drug dealers do to sell their drugs (0)

Drug dealers will do anything to sell their drugs. Take for instance the Obama Ecstasy pills that have hit the streets of a town in Texas.

Recently police in Palmview, Texas confiscating a batch of ecstasy pills with the face of President Obama stamped on them. The police also found black tar heroin, cocaine and marijuana when they did a traffic stop of a twenty-two year old. The drug dealer faces felony charges and a long time in jail. In the past, these criminals also offer drugs that look like vitamins for kids with cartoon characters such as Home Simpson and the Smurfs.

Palmview, Texas is a town near the Mexico border so you can say that these criminal drug dealers are definitely entrepreneurs. This makes the case that parents need to be aware of what their kids are doing.

Has your state adopted sex offender rules? (0)

Three years ago, Congress mandated federal standards in monitoring sex offenders. The law creates a national sex offender registry and toughen penalties for those who fail to register. As of today only one state, Ohio, has meet the new stricter federal standards.

Why are the other 49 states waiting to implement these standards? Some of the reasons are the high costs and legal challenges that are hampering implementation of these standards. There are 686,000 registered sex offenders nationwide. Advocates of these federal standards are worried that they are losing sex offenders who cross state lines and not registering as they are suppose to do.

Many of the states are struggling with the cost, which could climb into the millions of dollars.For example, in California, the state’s Sex Offender Management Board estimated last year that adopting the requirements would cost at least $38 million. However, if states don’t comply with the law, they face a loss of 10 percent of their federal crime-prevetion grants. Throw in recent stimulus funding, this could range from several hundred thousand dollars to more than $1 million each year, depending on the size of the state.

July of this year was the initial deadline for states to comply but the federal government has extended the deadline to July 2010. However, many states may still be unable to meet this deadline. Estimates show that about 100,000 offenders are not living where they are supposed to be. Also many sex offenders are complaining that registering every 90 days is difficult for them because they have to take off work to register instead of registering once a year. If you are a sex offender, making you register and keeping tabs of you are more imporant than the inconvience of this mandate.

The World ended for cop killer today (0)

Maurice Clemmons the suspected lone cop killer is dead. He was shot and killed by a Seattle patrol officer who was investigating a stolen car early Tuesday morning.

The police officer came across the stolen car and approached it. He detected movement behind him and recognized the suspect as Clemmons. He ordered him to show his hands and stop. Clemmons wouldn’t – so the police officer shot him several times.

Clemmons had a serious gunshot wound from one of the four officers killed in the coffee-shop shooting. With these additional injuries he died. Police also found a handgun on Clemmons that belonged to one of the slain officers.

He didn’t work alone, he had at least six or seven accomplices to help him escape. Police have these people in custody as well. As earlier reported, Clemmons was charged in Washington state earlier this year with assaulting a police officer and raping a child. Investigators in the sex case said he was motivated by visions that he was Jesus Christ and that the world was on the verge of the apocalypse.

Today the world did end for him and now the streets are safer.
