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

This hostage situation in Texas is linked to 9/11


Muhammed Siddiqui on Friday took multiple hostages at the Beth Israel Synagogue in Colleyville, Texas, on Saturday, demanding to see Aafia Siddiqui, who has been linked to him as his sister in unconfirmed reports and is currently serving an 86-year prison sentence for the attempted murder of American troops and FBI agents who arrested her.

Aafia Siddiqui is a Pakistani neuroscientist who moved to the US in 1990 on a student visa, subsequently studying at the University of Houston before transferring to MIT where she triple-majored in biology, anthropology, and archaeology, and later receiving her PhD from Brandeis University, as reported in Peter Bergen's book The Longest War: The Enduring Conflict Between America and Al-Qaeda. After wedding anesthesiologist Amjad Mohammed Khan in an arranged marriage, Siddiqui had two sons and a daughter in 1996, 1998 and 2002.

Guess Who

I dare them!
This will not go over well with the pro, either. As for household emissions, they make this cool thing called an exhaust fan. I can see why they would not be desired in a densely populated apt complex though. By reading their excuses, these are the very people of why they probably shouldn't have them in apartments. Too many stupid people that the responsible ones have to exist with.
