Every day, you wake up and do your daily routine. You kick off the remaining sock, brush your teeth, and at some point you read some sort of information to kick start your brain. But do you ever stop to look at the content you are hearing or watching? Do you ever question the interests of the folks putting that information in front of your eyes? I would and have bet my own life on this, the fact is, we as a country don’t pay close enough attention to who we allow to influence us.
We promise you that this column will only present facts and data of the opinions of others. My intent is simple and obvious, to maintain your attention and to make you smarter. With that said, welcome to the Crime and Terrorism brief.
Today the FBI released a firm statement of Indictment of seven individuals in this April 2018 Federal Grand Jury. With crimes from Sexual Exploitation of a Child; Enticement of a Minor; Receipt of Child Pornography; Possession of Child Pornography, to re-entry of a previously deported illegal, this was yet another clear cut case of the good guys against some of the worst people on Earth.

Douglas, Jr, Thadeus Michael Horn. Tyrone Lee, Jerry Lee Manus, Elijah Kai Marler, Gerardo Regalado-Cuevas, Harvey Joseph Stephens, Jr, Curtis Dewayne Townsend, Rosendo Valdovinos-Garcia, Ady Yesinia Oscal, Jennifer Barraza-GarciaKong Meng Vang, and Erick Viveros were all carried to justice on a silver platter.
The FBI for the northern District of Oklahoma says,
‘This substantial group of indictments represents a wide range of federal offenses, including complex white collar, immigration, and large-scale drug trafficking crimes. Several Project Safe Neighborhood cases involving violent crimes and firearms violations appear prominently also. “These indictments reflect the hard work of the dedicated federal prosecutors and support staff of the United States Attorney’s Office who are tirelessly committed to enforcing federal law and protecting the public whom they serve,” said United States Attorney Shores.
The following individuals have been charged with violations of United States law in indictments returned by the Grand Jury. The return of an indictment is a method of informing a defendant of alleged violations of federal law, which must be proven in a court of law beyond a reasonable doubt to overcome a defendant’s presumption of innocence.’ April 16, 2018 – Justice.gov
So, just to be clear, we are talking about individuals involved in foreign drug and other criminal operations here on American soil. I can assure you that this will be a prime focus of this column, to tell the truth about a problem the government caused, and is dealing with at a dramatically increasing rate. A common myth among some is that the feds don’t care, but that I consider to be more of a political and psychological warfare problem that the feds will ultimately have to confront. And let’s be clear… I’ve carried a gun alongside retired federal agents, I know why these men and women do what they do. They wake up, serve, shave and sleep. Trust me, the armed mafia is more of an unofficial thing that becomes a problem with Veterans who are bored and back home. Which is another topic for another day.
Of the list of take-downs, this one stuck-out the most to me because of his clear and obvious racketeering behavior patterns. According to the bureau, ‘Larry O. Douglas, Jr. Tampering With a Witness, Victim, and Informant by Physical Force and Threats of Physical Force; Tampering With a Witness, Victim, and Informant by Intimidation, Threats, and Corrupt Persuasion, and Misleading Conduct. Douglas, 44, address unknown, is charged with physically beating a victim, and for providing the victim with support, affection and material goods in order to persuade against and prevent her from communicating to law enforcement of his commission of a Federal offense. If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of life in prison and a $250,000 fine for the Tampering With a Witness, Victim, and Informant by Physical Force and Threats of Physical Force charge, and a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for the Tampering With a Witness, Victim, and Informant by Intimidation, Threats, and Corrupt Persuasion, and Misleading Conduct charge. The Federal Bureau of Investigation and Tulsa Police Department are the investigative agencies.’ April 16, 2018 – Justice.gov
Another big ‘baller’ in the group was Elijah Marler, who was accused of possession of cocaine with the intent to sell, possession of firearm and controlled substances, felon in possession of a firearm, and ammunition. These are the sort of issues that stack up when our political system ignores a flawed correctional industry. I suppose we all do ride the gravy train of intent. Proposals from tougher military justice policy to banning weaponry have been affronted, which really doesn’t leave much room for debate as the second Amendment to the Constitution protects the rights of Americans to ban weaponry. Some are of the opinion that more laws won’t help. Please let us know your thoughts, so we can propose something of reason.
Groups of people with no plans to follow the laws or any sort of ethical code of conduct are both harder to reach, and harder to stop. However, with a community of Americans who care about their country, their planet, and what we allow to influence our children, we can stop any evil.
We are not talking about people who would kill you and I for nothing, just to check if we had ten dollars on us. What we are looking at is an organized, criminal, militant front that is clearly looking to expand its power within the true sanctuary of the United States of America. I for one am happy to see our officials doing something about it, as I would mention, under a Republican administration and Congress.
