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

Wow! Alec Baldwin looked visibly shaken. Interesting to hear a professional weapons propmaster not understand how 2 people were shot even after safety measures were in place. I've not heard of this happening before or maybe it just didn't hit MSM.

It happened to Brandon Lee on the set of The Crow

So, Alec Baldwin's gun did contain a live round?!

On Thursday, a union that covers prop masters said in an email seen by Indie Wire that the prop gun used by Baldwin contained a live round.

After the tragic shooting, the devastated actor reportedly asked over and over why he was given a “hot gun” that left cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, 42, dead and director Joel Souza, 48, injured on the set of the upcoming Western “Rust.”
