  • Sick couple tried to pull off the sick and twisted operation called Miranda.
  • Part of the operation was having sex slaves, video equipment and vicious torture and mutilation.

In 1985, a man named Charles Ng stole a vise from a hardware store in San Fransisco. The shopkeeper caught him on the act and alerted police. Charles ran away, but Leonard Lake, his closest friend at the time, decided later to go to the store and try to pay for the stolen vise. Police at the scene found Lake and his car suspicious — the license plates were registered to another vehicle, the ID he carried belonged to a missing man named Robin Stapley. He was arrested when the routine search revealed a gun with a suppressor lying in the trunk.

While in custody and true identity revealed, he swallowed cyanide pills hidden carefully beforehand in his clothes that sent him into convulsions and eventually killed him four days later. The strange incident led police to a ranch transformed into a house of horrors. The fortified bunker was with hoarded illegal weapons, dead bodies, video equipment and tapes with vicious torture and mutilation of women.

In his diary, filled with sexual fantasies of sex slaves he planned to keep in the nuker after a nuclear holocaust, he wrote:

“God meant woman for cooking, cleaning house and sex. And when they are not in use, they should be locked up.”

Hackers Threaten to Erase Apple Customer Data

Turkish hackers are threatening to erase millions of iCloud user accounts unless Apple pays a ransom. This is a weird story, and I’m skeptical of some of the details. Presumably Apple has decided that it’s smarter to spend the money on secure backups and other security measures than to pay the ransom. But we’ll see how this unfolds….

Black Pols Push Back Against Trump’s ‘Urban Carnage’ Views

At a White House sit-down, the Congressional Black Caucus presented Trump with a 130-page policy proposal with a taunting title: “We Have a Lot to Lose: Solutions to Advance Black Families in the 21st Century.”

Leaders of the Congressional Black Caucus met with President  Trump on Wednesday about infrastructure and reducing urban crime, calling the sit-down a “positive” first step toward finding common ground, reports Reuters. The lawmakers presented Trump with a 130-page policy proposal titled “We Have a Lot to Lose: Solutions to Advance Black Families in the 21st Century,” a reference to Trump’s repeated query on the campaign trail asking what did blacks have to lose by supporting him.

Many black leaders have criticized his depiction of urban areas as crime-ridden war zones and his false claims that the first black U.S. president, Barack Obama, was born abroad. At the start of the meeting, Trump said he was serious about his promise to help African-Americans. “Every American child has a right to grow up in a safe community, to attend great schools, to graduate with access to high-paying jobs,” Trump said during the portion of the meeting open to reporters. But the relationship between blacks and Trump is fraught. Caucus chairman Cedric Richmond, a Democrat from Louisiana, said many  constituents had urged him not to meet with Trump “because of the rhetoric.”Richmond said, “We expressed that to him, because we’re certainly very clear of the emotions of African-Americans around the country.”

Noncitizens, Immigrants and Crime

The Department of Homeland Security has estimated that 1.9 million noncitizens have been convicted of criminal offenses and could be deported. The unanswered question is the degree of […]

Building Smarter Ransomware

Matthew Green and students speculate on what truly well-designed ransomware system could look like:

Most modern ransomware employs a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin to enable the payments that make the ransom possible. This is perhaps not the strongest argument for systems like Bitcoin -- and yet it seems unlikely that Bitcoin is going away anytime soon. If we can't solve the problem of Bitcoin, maybe it's possible to use Bitcoin to make "more reliable" ransomware.

[...]

Recall that in the final step of the ransom process, the ransomware operator must deliver a decryption key to the victim. This step is the most fraught for operators, since it requires them to manage keys and respond to queries on the Internet. Wouldn't it be better for operators if they could eliminate this step altogether?

[...]

At least in theory it might be possible to develop a DAO that's funded entirely by ransomware payments -- and in turn mindlessly contracts real human beings to develop better ransomware, deploy it against human targets, and...rinse repeat. It's unlikely that such a system would be stable in the long run ­ humans are clever and good at destroying dumb things ­ but it might get a good run.

One of the reasons society hasn't destroyed itself is that people with intelligence and skills tend to not be criminals for a living. If it ever became a viable career path, we're doomed.

Overwhelmed by Fighting, Ohio Library Turns Away Solo Kids

An escalation in crime and disruptive behavior prompted the public library in the Cleveland suburb of Euclid to require adult chaperones for those under 18 who visit after school. Local police have logged 156 incidents at the library in the past two years, with half resulting in arrests.

Overwhelmed by fighting, petty crime and misbehavior, the public library in the Cleveland suburb of Euclid instituted a policy this week to turn away unattended youths who flock to the facility after school to await rides from care-givers. Cleveland19.com reports the local police department counted 156 incidents at the library over the two-year period. Most occurred weekdays around school-dismissal time. Nearly half of the incidents resulted in an arrest. Seventy-two of the cases involved juveniles.

Library Director Kacie Armstrong said disruptive behavior has escalated recently, prompting the facility to require chaperones for youths who wish to visit after school. Those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult between 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. “We have been really disturbed and very concerned about the number of fights,” she said. Police officers were on hand in front of and inside the library Wednesday, when the chaperone policy took effect.

Make America Scared Again: Trump’s Flawed Crime Agenda

The president’s misinformed policies, plans and pronouncements may actually increase disorder. Criminologist James Alan Fox writes, “Trump’s exaggerated view of America’s crime problem may ultimately become prophesy.”

Were there a Doomsday Clock on criminal justice issues, President Trump would be pushing the dial’s big hand toward midnight, Northeastern University criminologist James Alan Fox writes in USA Today. He says Trump’s policies, plans and pronouncements may actually increase lawlessness and disorder. He cites five examples of “Trump’s flawed agenda on crime control.” 1) Immigration: Immigrants pose less of a threat in terms of crime and violence than the average American citizen, yet his creation of an office for Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement singles out and demonizes those coming to America. 2) Private Prisons: Not only are these institutional surrogates ineffective in terms of recidivism, but it is wrong to incentivize private industry to lock up more inmates longer.

3) Marijuana Enforcement: Doubling down on federal enforcement in progressive states that legalized recreational marijuana is a waste of resources and seems to be little more than mean-spirited punishment for the 2016 election results. 4) Violence Against Women: This federal initiative faces an uncertain future under a president who bragged, “No one respects women more than me.” 5) Guns: As part of Trump’s unholy alliance with the NRA,  “gun-free zones” in schools and military bases as well as limits on right-to-carry provisions may end.
