(LOS ANGELES, Calif.) Court Report: David & Louise Turpin: Plead guilty on Friday to 14-criminal charges of including ‘ torture and abuse ‘ including shackling children in isolation for 17yrs in filthy conditions and could face 25yrs in prison #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Apr.20: The desperate cry for help came from a girl who had lived in such isolation for 17 years that she didn’t know her address, the month of the year or what the word medication meant: But after jumping out a window from the filthy home where she lived with her parents and 12 siblings, she knew enough to punch the digits 9-1-1 into a barely workable cellphone and then began describing years of horrific abuse to a police dispatcher: The brave girl’s call that freed her siblings — some who had been chained to their beds — led to the opposite fate for their parents, David and Louise Turpin, who face 25 years to life in prison when sentenced Friday.

The couple pleaded guilty in Riverside County Superior Court in February to torture and other abuse and neglect so severe it stunted their children’s growth, led to muscle wasting and left two girls unable to bear children: Before the 17-year-old escaped from the home in a middle-class section of the city of Perris, about 60 miles (96 kilometers) southeast of Los Angeles, the Turpins had lived largely out of view.David Turpin, 57, had been an engineer for Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman. Louise Turpin, 50, was listed as a housewife in a 2011 bankruptcy filing.

Their home was neatly kept and neighbors rarely saw the kids outside the home.When deputies arrived, they were shocked by what they discovered: A 22-year-old son was chained to a bed and two girls had just been set free from their shackles. The house was covered in filth and the stench of human waste was overwhelming.

Deputies testified that the children said they were only allowed to shower once a year. They were mainly kept in their rooms except for meals, which had been reduced from three to one per day, a combination of lunch and dinner: The 17-year-old complained that she could no longer stomach peanut butter sandwiches — they made her gag.

The Turpin offspring weren’t allowed to play like normal children: Other than an occasional family trip to Las Vegas or Disneyland, they rarely left the home. They slept during the day and were active a few hours at night.

Although the couple filed paperwork with the state to homeschool their children, learning was limited: The oldest daughter only completed third grade.“We don’t really do school. I haven’t finished first grade,” the 17-year-old said, according to Deputy Manuel Campos……………Children said they were beaten, caged and shackled to beds if they didn’t obey their parents.Investigators found that the toddler had not been abused, but all of the children were hospitalized after they were discovered.

The seven adult children were living together and attending school in February when their parents pleaded guilty: Attorney Jack Osborn, who represents them, declined to comment on them Thursday………………..It’s not clear if any children will attend the sentencing, but they will be offered a chance to speak or can offer written statements to be read in court.Defense attorneys would not say if their clients will address the court.

The couple pleaded guilty to 14 criminal charges: Prosecutors said the deal would likely keep them in prison for the rest of their lives and spare the children from testifying………………“The defendants ruined lives, so I think it’s just and fair that the sentence be equivalent to first-degree murder,” District Attorney Mike Hestrin said at the time of the plea.

(BANKOK, Thailand.) JUST IN: Thai navy on Saturday boarded the floating cabin of a fugitive U.S. bitcoin trader and his Thai girlfriend, both prominent members of the “seasteading” movement who possibly face the death sentence for setting up their offshore home to avoid government control & taxation as part of a new movement in tech societies to build floating communities #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Apr.20: Thai authorities have revoked the visa of American citizen Chad Elwartowski and have charged him and his partner, Supranee Thepdet, with violating Thai sovereignty by raising a small cabin on top of a weighted spar 14 nautical miles off the west-coast of Thai island of Phuket: The cabin has been promoted as “the world’s first seastead” by the group Ocean Builders, part of a movement in tech and libertarian circles to build floating communities beyond the bounds of nations as a way to explore alternative societies and governments.

“I was free for a moment. Probably the freest person in the world,” Elwartowski posted on his Facebook on April 13, days before the Thai navy raided his floating home: Elwartowski, 46, and Supranee, whose Facebook page describes her as a “Bitcoin expert, Trader, Chef, seastead Pioneer”, apparently fled after a surveillance plane flew over the cabin the previous day.

The Royal Thai Navy task force had planned on Saturday to seize the structure and tow it back to shore for use as evidence, but by the afternoon it was still studying how to move it without destroying it, the navy said: In a video posted last month detailing the raising of the floating home, Elwartowski said 20 more similar houses would be up for sale to form a community.

Elwartowski and Ocean Builders say the spar was in international waters and beyond Thailand’s jurisdiction: Thai authorities say the structure is in its 200-mile exclusive economic zone and therefore a violation of its sovereignty…………..A Thai navy task force was sent out on Saturday to tow in the structure which will be handed over to Phuket’s police to be kept as an exhibit for the legal action, the navy said in an official statement.

The navy said they have evidence that the floating home was built in a private boatyard in Phuket and said the couple wanted to establish a “permanent settlement at sea beyond the sovereignty of nations by using a legal loophole” It said the action “reveals the intention of disobeying the laws of Thailand as a littoral state and could lead to a creation of a new state within Thailand’s territorial waters… undermining Thailand’s national security as well as economic and social interests of maritime nations.”

In an email reply to Reuters, Elwartowski referred all questions to the Seasteading Institute and pointed to online statements from the Ocean Builders website: Elwartowski and Supranee are members of Ocean Builders, which has denied allegations that they were planning to set up an independent state or “micro nation”, according to its online statement.

The group said that the pair, both active bitcoin investors, did not build, invest in or design the floating home themselves but were “volunteers excited about the prospect of living free”, documenting their lives as “pioneer seasteaders” off the coast of Phuket:

The U.S. Embassy in Bangkok told Reuters that Elwartowski had engaged a lawyer and was being provided with appropriate assistance:

According to Ocean Builders, the concept of “seasteading” has been discussed for years but the cabin Elwartowski and Supranee lived on was the first attempt at living in what it described as international waters: Other groups, such as the Seasteading Institute, which was originally backed by PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel, have sought to build floating cities with the cooperation of host nations.

Modern seasteading began around 2008 when Patri Friedman began highlighting his idea in Silicon Valley to build seastead communities where you could essentially “vote with your home” This would allow for more experimentation in governance structures and advance governance in the same way that cell phones progress due to consumers having the ability to choose their cell phone.

Initially Patri teamed up with Peter Thiel to found The Seasteading Institute (TSI).
With Mr. Thiel’s initial donation TSI began exploring ways to make seasteading happen. They did many studies, held contests for various designs and branched off different projects. The plans have usually revolved around building large cities which were very costly and were never able to obtain the financing necessary to get off the ground.

(FLINT, Mich.) Court Report: A Canadian man convicted of terrorism for nearly killing an airport police officer was sentenced Thursday to life in prison: U.S. prosecutors said Amor Ftouhi drove 1,000 miles from Montr eal to the airport in Flint where he yelled “God is great” in Arabic and repeatedly stabbed Lt. Jeff Neville in 2017 #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Apr.19: Investigators said Ftouhi wanted to stab Neville, take his gun and start shooting people in the airport: He legally drove into the U.S. at Champlain, New York, and arrived in Flint five days later. He tried but failed to buy a gun at a gun show and instead bought a large knife: During Thursday’s sentencing, Ftouhi told the judge that he “regretted he did not get a machine gun” and regretted he did not “kill that cop.” ……….He also asked for a life sentence and said he had jihad in his heart and blood and didn’t kill enough people………….“Prosecutors have said he told investigators his ‘mission was to kill and be killed.”

“Man convicted of terrorism at Flint airport gets life, says he regretted not killing more people,” Fox2 Detroit, April 18, 2019:

Ftouhi is a native of Tunisia who moved to Canada in 2007: He had a degree in sociology, worked in insurance and had no indications of being radicalised until the attack in Flint…………….Prosecutors have said he told investigators his “mission was to kill and be killed.”

His defense lawyer, Joan Morgan, said Ftouhi wasn’t attempting to create mass casualties and wanted to be killed so his family could collect life insurance and so he could become a martyr….

Neville, who was on duty at the airport, when he was approached from behind by Ftouhi and had his throat slashed….

(LONDON) LATEST: Activists or Children unfurl banner asking are we the last generation at Heathrow airport on Friday ? But does blocking other peoples right to go to work on Thursday in areas around the city and preventing the police from carrying out other duties as they are busy arresting 500 protestors who are released and then return to the the frontline again …..really achieving anything ? #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Apr.19: Editor says here is our latest report on Friday: The activists, all born after 1990, unfurled a banner asking: “Are we the the last generation?” as dozens of police prevented them from blocking the road: The protesters said they were risking arrest to highlight the dangers of climate change. “To everyone reading about this, I’m here because I love you and fear for your future and my future. It’s that life and that fear that gives me courage,” said Oscar Idoe, 17, from Bristol.”About 20 protesters were moved on to the pavement by police at one of the road entrances to the airport………….Protesters stood by the tunnel that leads to terminals two and three, but all roads the roundabout were open as the group remained surrounded by police.” “Protesters can expect a robust police response,” said Assistant Commissioner Nick Ephgrave. “We are determined to keep the airport operating.”Heathrow said it was “working with the authorities to address any threat of protests which could disrupt the airport.

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/apr/19/extinction-rebellion-stages-youth-protest-at-heathrow-airport

AP Reported: Environmental protesters who have blocked London roads and bridges for more than three days said Thursday they plan to take their civil disobedience campaign to Heathrow, Europe’s busiest airport, at the start of the Easter holiday weekend.The Extinction Rebellion group said it would mount a protest at the airport on Friday. The group vowed to escalate its campaign of disruption if the British government doesn’t step up action against climate change.London’s Metropolitan Police force urged the group to reconsider, saying the airport action could “cause further disruption and misery to thousands of travelers, many of them families, over Easter.”

At 17:32hrs on Wednesday, 17 April, a 24-hour condition was imposed at Parliament Square and the roads leading to it. This has been renewed for a further three days and will expire at 17:29hrs on Sunday, 21 April: The condition at Oxford Circus also remains in place. It will expire at 16:45hrs on Saturday, 20 April………The condition at Waterloo Bridge remains in place. It will expire at 21:10hrs on Friday, 19 April……..All three conditions stipulate that protesters should continue any demonstrations at Marble Arch only……………In order to impose this condition, the Met required evidence that serious disruption was being caused to communities in London……….Based on the information and intelligence available at the time, we are satisfied that this threshold has been met and this course of action is necessary in order to prevent ongoing serious disruption to communities: As of 17:50hrs on Thursday, 18 April, more than 480 people have been arrested.

Hundreds of demonstrators have blocked central London sites including Waterloo Bridge over the River Thames, Parliament Square and the Oxford Circus and Marble Arch intersections since Monday: The protest sites have sprouted tents, sound systems and even an ice cream van. Traffic has been snarled and many bus routes disrupted, to the frustration of commuters…………………Police have made more than 460 arrests……………Extinction rebellion co-founder Gail Bradbrook said “more people are joining us all the time.”“It’s certainly an option that tactics will be escalated if our demands are not met,” she said.Home Secretary Sajid Javid, Britain’s interior minister, condemned the demonstrations, saying protesters “do not have the right to break the law and significantly disrupt the lives of others.”“I expect the police to take a firm stance and use the full force of the law,” Javid said.

RT @MetPoliceEvents: There are strong plans in place that will enable us to deploy a significant number of officers to Heathrow and take firm action against any protestors seeking to cause disruption #ExtinctionRebellion https://t.co/jLnAcMNt6h April 18, 2019 at 10:10PM:

(LONDON) MET Court Report: An 18-year-old man has been found guilty of murdering a teenager in Northolt: Joel Amade (27.04.00) 18, of Eastwood Road, Ilford, was found guilty of the murder of Jason Isaacs by a jury after a trial at the Old Bailey: He will be sentenced on Monday, 13 May #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Apr.17: An investigation was launched by the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command after Jason – a talented footballer – was stabbed in a residential cul-de-sac in Northholt in 2017: Police were called just before 22:30hrs on Saturday, 18 November to Newnham Close and found the 18-year-old suffering from multiple injuries…….He was taken to St Mary’s Hospital, and immediately had surgery he remains critical for some time before dying at 11.55hrs on Tuesday, 21 November.

During the trial, which began on Monday, 18 March, the court heard how 18-year-old Jason and four of his friends had made their way to the area after deciding to spend their Saturday night at a friend’s house: They walked to Oldfields Circus in Northolt and bought some drinks, before heading along Orchard Close…………….As they got past the junction heading towards Girton Road, two mopeds appeared and drove at speed towards the group…………………..On each moped was a rider and a pillion passenger, who were all masked or wearing helmets and carrying weapons……………They stopped the mopeds at Newnham Gardens, jumped off, and began to chase Jason and his friends……………..They resumed the chase on their mopeds and Jason became separated………..He was pursued into Newnham Close and set upon in what was described as a shocking and sustained knife attack………………….The attackers fled the scene on the mopeds and an investigation was launched……………….Prior to the arrival of London Ambulance Service, one of Jason’s friends and a resident, whose door Jason had knocked on in distress, attempted first aid…………………….He had collapsed in their front garden but unknown to those who were trying to help him, had been fatally wounded…………………A post mortem examination at Uxbridge Mortuary on 24 November 2017, established that Jason had eight knife wounds, possibly caused by two different weapons.

He had been stabbed four times in the back, and it was one of these which proved to be the fatal injury: Jason also had a wounds to his upper right arm, right elbow, right knee and left thigh: These were consistent with injuries caused by a sword or machete.

Amade was first arrested on Monday, 20 November, 2017 on suspicion of attempted murder and bailed while further enquiries were made: In the wake of Jason’s death and post mortem results, he was arrested again on Thursday, 30 November and charged with murder: Amade appeared at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court on Friday, 1 December, where he denied murder and was remanded in custody:

Amade – originally from the Harrow area – left his home in Ilford at around 16:45hrs on the day of the attack and used public transport to get to Northolt: CCTV showed that he was carrying a black motorcycle helmet and had made a telephone call just before he headed over to north west London: By 12.30am, around two hours after the attack, Amade took a train back to east London and was caught on a CCTV camera at Wembley Park station wearing the same clothes as he had been seen in earlier that day.

Upon his arrest at the Ilford address, these clothes – a puffed jacket and hoody were found – alongside the helmet which also featured a distinctive V shaped logo: This matched that of a moped pillion rider captured on nearby CCTV shortly before the attack.

During the course of the investigation, one of the mopeds used was recovered and forensically examined: Blood was found on one of the body panels. DNA profiled identified Amade as being the likely contributor on a one in a billion basis.

Detective Sergeant Jonathan Hurley from the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command, who led the investigation, said: “On that night in 2017, Jason was looking forward to spending time with his friends, much like any typical teenager in London…………………“No young person should go out for the night with his friends and never return, but that was the consequence of this ferocious attack………….“Tragically, his Saturday night ended by paying the highest of prices, and my thoughts and condolences remain with his family and friends………………“Throughout this process, Amade maintained that he was not even in the vicinity of Northholt on the night of the murder, but this has been found to be false…………………….“I would like to recognise the bravery of Jason’s mother and family, as harrowing evidence about the murder was heard and shown in court………………………“The residents of Newnham Close and Jason’s friends who tried in vain to save his life, will also have to live with the events of that night for the rest of their lives……………“Jason never regained consciousness and his family were not able to say goodbye………..“I hope today’s verdict brings some degree of closure and modest level of comfort to his loved ones.” ……….An 18-year-old man who also stood trial for murder alongside Amade was found not guilty.
