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

Cooke went missing in Georgetown on January 10, 2002, while visiting her parents on winter break from college. Her family has not seen her since that morning, when her mother left to work.

Now, almost two decades later, the sheriff’s office is looking for someone who was living in the Georgetown area at the time of her disappearance and is known to have associated with her.

She was last seen about 200 yards away from her home.

The person the sheriff’s office is looking for information about is known to be involved in the cattle/horse industry and investigators believe they may have mentioned details about Cooke’s disappearance to an acquaintance, “likely speaking of the incident in third person and distancing himself from any actual involvement.”

Almost nobody goes to jail from corporations. Someone should have done jail time for the Ford Pinto corporate coverup, but IIRC, nobody did. They were just fined. Same with PGE (The Erin Brockovich movie case.)
Pintos are fine as long as you're not turning left, Have your signal on and get rear ended. Nothing wrong there. PG&E got tagged. Their seepage into ground water gave cancer to and killed people. They weren't properly lining waste holding ponds etc. Among other intfractions. Where I worked 2001-03 I had them as a customer. I hated it.

A bit hard to follow because father and son apparently have the same and first last name. At first I thought the molester killed the one molesting but the molester was caught and he killed his father who caught him and then his stepmother. A machete no less AND he enters the child's room with a machete to molest her.

Sick, sad and tragic.

You want to kill yourself. Don't take another person with you. That's B.S.
Yeah, I suspect there was more to it, not that it excuses it by any means. I don't mean foul play I mean she was beyond something, hope or otherwise. I fail to understand anyone who takes their children as well but it sure does happen. Maybe an obsession with the evil world or something. Recent divorce and yet it said she was the one who filed for it...

I've been suicidal more times than I can count. I get infuriated with the world. Very crushing break up. Break downs. The world keeps spinning.
