WASHINGTON: DAY ONE: Tens of thousands of law enforcement officers and miles of barriers were in place in Washington on Friday, as officials braced for hundreds of thousands of people planning to celebrate or protest Donald Trump’s inauguration as president of the United States – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Jan.20: Washington braces itself for MASSIVE PROTESTS as #police and security prepare for the 45th Inauguration of President of America .. God Bless America … Editor

About 900,000 people were expected to pack central Washington, including the grassy National Mall facing the Capitol, where the New York businessman and former reality TV star will be sworn in, and the parade route along Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House.

A disparate group of liberal activists irked by comments by Trump about women, illegal immigrants and Muslims have planned protests throughout central Washington. Supporters of Trump, who has never before held elected office, were expected to pack the streets to cheer the man they see as bringing a fresh approach to politics and sparking economic growth.

One of the largest anti-Trump protests expected on Friday will be organised by the ANSWER Coalition, a broad-based liberal group, which expects to have thousands at the U.S. Navy Memorial, along the parade route.

It’s Day One“, we’re saying, of a larger era of resistance, and we believe we’re going to send a very powerful message to Trump and the government,” said Ben Becker, 33, an organizer with the group. “The Trump agenda is very comprehensive. It includes attacks on Muslims, immigrants, on women’s rights, on workers’ rights. So really, no matter what community you’re a part of, you have a stake in this fight.”

Trump supporters also flooded into the capital, many sporting baseball caps bearing his “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan.

Jackson Rouse, an 18-year-old high school senior from northeastern Arkansas, who skipped school to attend the inauguration with his father, expressed concern that several dozen Democratic congressmen and congresswomen planned to stay away from the inauguration in protest.

“I think he was voted in fairly and it was a fair election,” Rouse said. “I love Trump. I expect changes and I expect he’s going to do everything he said he was going to do.”

BIKERS, POTHEADS

Some of Friday’s protests will bring a carnival atmosphere, including a group of motorcyclists calling themselves Bikers for Trump, who will have to arrive at their parade route rally without their noisy bikes, and pro-marijuana activists who plan to hand out 4,200 joints to be lit up in violation of federal and local laws.

While Washington will be the focal point of the protests, anti-Trump activists have planned sympathy rallies around the nation and the world, with events planned for major U.S. cities, including Chicago and Los Angeles, and as far away as Sydney.

About 30 groups have obtained permits for protests they estimate will attract about 270,000 people on Friday and Saturday, far more than have been seen in other recent presidential inaugurations.

By far the largest protest is expected to be Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington, which some 200,000 people from around the United States are expected to attend.

The U.S. Secret Service, Washington police and other law enforcement agencies planned to have some 28,000 officers in place to secure the roughly three-square-mile (almost eight-square-kilometre) area of downtown Washington

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said police aimed to keep groups separate, using similar tactics as employed during last year’s political conventions.

A protest group known as Disrupt J20 has vowed to stage demonstrations at each of 12 security checkpoints and block access to the festivities on the grassy National Mall.

NYC: #NYPD cops pocketed cash bribes to “expedite” pistol permits for members of the Orthodox Jewish community — and a Boro Park Shomrim patrol leader offered another officer a near $1 million payday to keep the scheme going, the feds charged Monday – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Jan.08: A cop in the #NYPD ‘s License Division​ allegedly confessed to the #FBI that he and a supervisor accepted payments he called “lunch money” from Alex “Shaya” Lichtenstein, who was hauled into court Monday on bribery and conspiracy charges New York Post reported …

Court papers say Lichtenstein was secretly recorded last week bragging about how he had secured 150 gun licenses through his connections in the division but needed a new hookup there following a crackdown.

He then offered a whistleblowing cop $6,000 a pop to continue the scheme, using a calculator to show ​that ​another 150 permits would be worth $900,000 in payoffs, court papers say.

Lichtenstein said his arrangement had been derailed by the License Division’s commanding officer, ​Deputy Inspector ​Michael Endall, for fear that people would think Endall “had his hand in the cookie pot,” according to the feds.

The complaint says Lichtenstein spent time at the License Division “on a near daily basis” from 2014 and was regularly spotted sitting near the desk of a supervisor, identified by sources as Sgt. David Villanueva.

Villanueva told his colleagues at the License Division early this year that Endall had “banished Lichtenstein because of the money Lichtenstein was making selling gun licenses,” the complaint says.

Villanueva claimed that Lichtenstein “charged his customers $18,000 per gun license.”

During questioning Sunday by the #FBI, another License Division cop — identified by sources as Officer Richard Ochetal — admitted he knew Lichtenstein and had processed permit applications for him, the papers say.

“When asked if Lichtenstein paid cash bribes to [Villanueva] or [Ochetal], [Ochetal] was silent for several seconds and then said that Lichtenstein would give [Villanueva] ‘lunch money’ for [Villanueva] and [Ochetal],” the complaint says.

“Asked how much ‘lunch money’ he would receive, [Ochetal] responded ‘a hundred dollars.’ ’’

No charges have been filed against Endall, Villanueva or Ochetal.

But less than half an hour before the Lichtenstein complaint was unsealed, the #NYPD announced that all three had been bounced from the License Division.

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said Endall “is being reassigned to an administrative position pending further review,” while Villanueva and Ochetal were both stripped of their badges and guns and also transferred.

The moves brought to nine the number of cops who have been publicly demoted since The Post revealed this month that the FBI was investigating a gifts-for-favors scheme involving top #NYPD brass and two businessmen, Jona Rechnitz and Jeremy Reichberg.

The joint probe with the #NYPD has also enveloped Mayor de Blasio’s 2013 campaign-finance operation, and Bratton last week told The Post that it was the department’s worst scandal he has seen since the Knapp Commission’s revelations of widespread police graft in the early 1970s.

“This investigation will continue to go where the leads take us,” Bratton said in a statement Monday.

Lichtenstein, 44, was busted by the feds Sunday morning at his home in Pomona, Rockland County, where he lives with his wife and a teenage son.

He was hauled into a packed Manhattan federal courtroom Monday afternoon. Wearing a gray golf shirt, black pants and a black yarmulke, he appeared scrawny and pale as he sniffled loudly and wiped away tears.

Prosecutor Kan Nawaday asked to have Lichtenstein held without bail as a “danger to the community.”

“He was no less than an arms dealer for the community in New York City,” Nawaday said.

“Our case is very strong. Just last week, this defendant was recorded trying to bribe an #NYPD officer to obtain a permit for his clients.”

Nawaday also said that the feds seized two handguns during Lichtenstein’s arrest and that he had a shotgun stashed in his home.

US Magistrate Judge Henry Pitman rejected the government’s request and set bond at $500,000.

“I don’t think dangerousness has been shown here. I think the government’s characterization of him as an arms dealer is somewhat hyperbolic,” Pitman said.

Lichtenstein, whose lawyer described him as a “self-employed businessman” making $80,000 a year, posted the bond and was sprung at around 5:30 p.m.

He declined to comment on his way out of the courthouse but gave a thumbs-up to photographers.

A source in the Borough Park Orthodox community said some of the pistol permits Lichtenstein obtained may have been legitimate, but many were not.

“It’s just a prestige thing. It shows you’re hooked up in the Police Department and you have important, high-ranking friends,” the source said.

#AceXmasNews NYC: #NYPD Officer Buys Socks For Homeless Man Seen Digging Through Trash In Grand Central Now That’s Christmas Aren’t The Boys In Blue Wonderful – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – A New York City transit #police officer has made good on a promise he made a homeless man.image

Officer Frank Rendina, of the #NYPD Transit Bureau’s Anti-Terrorism Unit, and his partner were patrolling Grand Central Terminal last Friday when they spotted Ron Brown digging through a trash can.

They explained to Ron that it’s illegal to open trash cans on subway platforms and asked him to stop.

Rendina then asked Ron why he was collecting cans.

The homeless man said, “I want socks,” and without hesitating, Rendina offered to buy him a pair.

“Glancing down it was apparent that his dusty feet in his ripped shoes did in fact need socks, and noting that winter is coming, socks would definitely be needed,” said subway rider Joshua Lagan, who witnessed the exchange and wrote about on his Facebook page. “Without hesitation, the cop put his arm on his shoulder and smiling said, ‘I’ll buy you socks. It’s Christmas soon right? I’ll buy you socks for Christmas. Merry Christmas,’ he said smiling broadly. ‘Let’s go to the store.’ The homeless man was so shocked he just kept stammering, ‘Are you serious?” “Are you serious?’”

#NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill thanked Lagan for capturing the special moment.

Found on @facebook. Thx for taking time to post this @joshualagan. We can all learn something. I’m so proud of #NYPD cops, and of all NYers. pic.twitter.com/vhoQie232e

— Commissioner O’Neill (@NYPDONeill) December 6, 2016

“Found on @facebook. Thx for taking time to post this @joshualagan. We can all learn something. I’m so proud of #NYPD cops, and of all NYers,” O’Neill wrote on Twitter.

Rendina had the socks boxed and wrapped, and he was back in Grand Central on Tuesday to give Brown the special gift, according to a tweet by Transit Chief Joseph Fox.

“It’s Christmas season, I would’ve done it regardless but we made it extra special, put it in some wrapping and make it fancy,” Rendina said.

BALTIMORE: A 30-year veteran #police officer was indicted on theft charges on Monday after prosecutors allege he used a fake diploma and two counts of theft of at least $10,000 – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Dec.06: Baltimore police detective indicted on theft charges, allegations he used fake diploma

A 30-year veteran of the Baltimore police was indicted on theft charges after prosecutors allege he used a fake diploma.

Det. Staccato Butler, who worked as computer forensic analyst, was charged with two counts of theft of at least $10,000 but less than $100,000 for “unlawfully presenting as genuine a false diploma,” the Baltimore State’s Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

Police on Monday said Butler is no longer with the department.

Butler had been on the #police force for more than 30 years. He is also listed as a member of High Technology Crime Adjunct Faculty at the University of Baltimore. The University of Baltimore declined to comment on the criminal charges. A spokesman called it a personnel matter.

In a brief phone interview Monday evening, Butler said he was aware of the charges but said he was unable to comment because he was in the middle of a class at the University of Baltimore.

Butler was a decorated officer, who was given the police department’s Medal of Honor for chasing down a robber, who nearly #killed him.

In 1997, Butler, then 33 and in the mounted horse unit, was off-duty recovering from throat cancer when he was at Signet Bank at 6 Paul St. to deposit a check. In front of him, a man made threatening gestures and told a teller to “Open it up. Give me all you got.”

The teller handed the man $2,000, and the man put the money in his pocket and left out the bank’s revolving doors. The teller told Butler what had occurred, and the officer pursued the suspect to Charles Center and down an escalator. He drew his gun and told the man to surrender.

A Mass Transit Administration officer arrived and tried to cuff the man, who started to fight. Butler holstered his gun and joined in the fray. While he was trying to help the officer, his gun fell out and the suspect grabbed it and pulled the trigger. But Butler had pulled the slide of the gun to safety before he holstered it so it couldn’t go off.

“It was the most scared I’ve ever been in my life,” he told the Sun in 1997.

Butler most recently worked as a detective in Baltimore police’s Cyber and Electronic Crimes Unit in a job he said he enjoyed.

“I am glad that I did come to the computer crimes department at a point in my career I decided that I wanted to do something that was going to help me once I retired from the department,” Butler said in a 2015 promotional video for Baltimore police. “I’m the senior investigator here, as far as forensics in the unit. I’ve always loved computers. Once I started messing with them, I was just fascinated by them.”
