ONGOING CRIME BREAKING NEWS!

Starting in January 2020, this thread is about the news as it breaks!


Bernard Madoff says he is dying and is asking a judge for compassionate release from prison, where he is serving 150 years for orchestrating the largest Ponzi scheme in history, according to a Wednesday federal court filing.

Madoff, 81, has terminal kidney failure and a life expectancy of less than 18 months. When the court sentenced him, “it was clear that Madoff’s 150-year prison sentence was symbolic for three reasons: retribution, deterrence, and for the victims,” the court filing states. “This Court must now consider whether keeping Madoff incarcerated … is truly in furtherance of statutory sentencing goals and our society’s value and understanding of compassion.”

Madoff said in the request for compassionate release that he “does not dispute the severity of his crimes.”


IMO- stay in jail

A Florida teen is behind bars after police say he beat a boy with special needs to near death and left him in the woods.

A little after midnight, police found the boy, naked and badly beaten, walking alone down off of Huggins Street in Lake County. Click Orlando reports that the child had a bruised, swollen face. His eyes were nearly shut from the swelling and he had bleeding from his mouth.

The victim quickly identified his aggressor as 16-year-old Matthew Kirby.

When officers arrived at Kirby’s home and questioned him, he readily admitted that he choked the victim to unconsciousness, according to the police. He also reportedly said his goal was to ultimately kill the victim.

They can identify psychopaths with MRI's now. People like this kid should be tested and never let out of jail ever.

I'd like to smack that smug look off his face.

Police say Juan Saucedo fatally shot Bennie Hargrove during a bullying incident outside the school during the lunch hour.

According to a criminal complaint, another 13-year-old student told police Saucedo had shown him and several other students a gun that he brought to school.

The student told police Hargrove walked up to Saucedo at lunch to tell Saucedo to “stop bullying his friend” and that he “didn’t want to fight” but wanted him to “leave his friends alone.”

Everyone wants to solve everything with guns. It's not working. When I was 13 we just had fist fights. It was over.
