It seems like everywhere we look, news of drug-related deaths, arrests and trafficking are making headlines. It’s not news that drugs are a problem, but it’s about time we all come together to do something about it. Today kicks off Red Ribbon Week and is the country’s oldest and largest anti-drug program. It runs during the last week of October each year, and in addition to educating the community and hosting anti-drug events, it also honors DEA Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena.
In 1985, Special Agent Enrique Camarena was working in Mexico hot on the trail of a major drug trafficking organization. In an unfortunate turn of events, he was kidnapped, brutally tortured and murdered by the drug cartel. This tragedy exposed the horrors of drugs and the international drug trade to the American public.
What comes to mind when you think of Chandra Levy? Murder, DC intern and Gary Condit probably. But how about the name Ingmar Guandique? Well 9 years after her gruesome murder in Rock Creek Park, the illegal immigrant from El Salvador is on the stand for her murder. Jury selection begins today.
After Chandra Levy’s disappearance, the truth came out about California Democrat Gary Condit who was romantically linked to the 24-year-old intern, although he never admitted it. In one of the biggest political scandals of the decade, Gary Condit’s political career took a dive after he was thought to be a suspect in the murder. Since then, Gary Condit has cleared his name and is no longer considered a suspect. He is cooperating with authorities and will likely be called as a witness.
When doing research for a multi-million dollar film, especially one that’s based on a true story, you’d think Hollywood would do its research. Well, it seems that someone was asleep on the job over on the set of the new Hilary Swank film, Conviction, and family members of a murder victim portrayed in the film are lashing out.
It has been nearly 30 years since John Lennon was murdered by Mark David Chapman. If he were still alive, he would turn 70 tomorrow. Part of him has been living on in New York City, though. John Lennon’s fingerprints were found in a New York memorabilia shop and were going to being auctioned off at an event on Lennon’s birthday, October 9th. The prints were found at Gotta Have It and were taken back by police in 1976 when John Lennon was applying for US citizenship along with his signature and listed name as “John Winston Ono Lennon.” But the FBI stepped in and has seized the prints. How did police fingerprints wind up at a memorabilia shop? And what does the FBI have to do with all this? It’s anyone’s guess.
Anyway, in honor of the Beatle, here are some John Lennon quotes:
“All we are saying is give peace a chance.”
“All you need is love.”
“I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?”
There is Law And Order: Special Victims Unit, Law And Order: Criminal Intent, and now the latest addition to the L&O universe -- Law And Order: Los Angeles. Season one kicked off last night on NBC, and not surprisingly, did well. The original series Law And Order was created by Dick Wolf back in 1990 and takes place in New York City. The drama is real and you can't help but stay glued to your TV watching the storylines unfold. Lasting 20 seasons, the series marks the longest running police drama in television history. Naturally, it would make sense for the networks to test a new spinoff. Law And Order Los Angeles draws viewers in from the start and gives them all the violence and drama they need to be fully satisfied by the time credits roll. The characters seem realistic, but Los Angeles is a far cry from New YorkRead More
After 7,300 unsuccessful appeals were made to the governor on her behalf, Teresa Lewis was executed Thursday by lethal injection at Greensville Correctional Center in Jarratt, Virginia. As the first woman in five years to be executed in the United States and the first in Virginia since 1912, Teresa Lewis’s story received an enormous amount of media attention.
The 41-year-old has lived behind bars since 2002 when she conspired to murder her husband and stepson so she could cash in on the insurance policy — $250,000. Don’t people rob banks anymore? Or get bigger insurance policies? Clearly, it’s not certain whether Teresa Lewis was all there in the head. She was described by her defense attorneys as “borderline mentally disabled” but that was later rejected in one of her appeals.
