A worried 911 call for help from combat vet Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi – jailed in Mexico since March on weapons charges – appears to support his claim he'd crossed the border by mistake.

In the tape obtained by The Blaze, Tahmooressi tells the 911 operator: “The problem is I crossed the border by accident and I have three guns in my truck and they’re trying to take my guns from me.” 

The operator asks, “So you’re in Mexico?”

Tahmooressi replies: “Yeah.”

The 911 operator declares, “There’s nothing I can help you with sir. I do apologize.”

“I’m not sure if I’ve crossed yet,” he responds, explaining he couldn't find a “turn around point.”


Moments later, he was placed under arrest by Mexican police, and now faces six to 21 years in a Mexican prison for carrying his registered AR-15 rifle, .45-caliber pistol and 12-gauge pump shotgun in his car across the border, The Blaze reports.

The 25-year-old soldier's family, U.S. officials and members of Congress are all lobbying for his safe return. 

The vet's mom, Jill Tahmooressi, told the Blaze her son was undergoing treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder and had only been in San Diego for 10 days when he took the wrong turn at the San Ysidro checkpoint.




Tahmooressi was originally held in Tijuana’s La Mesa Penitentiary, where on his second day he escaped over a wall but was recaptured. He was then moved to solitary, where he was shackled for nearly 30 days.

Last week he was moved to to a maximum-security prison about 40 miles outside of Tijuana.

“I spoke with him by phone and he is more worried about me and that he’s hungry,” his mother told The Blaze on Tuesday. “I need to stay here and fight for him and I have no one that can go there and visit him or bring him food. I’m terrified for my son but I’m not going to give up the fight.”

U.S. Foreclosures Drive Up Suicide Rates : Study

This as the "mainstream media" continues to "report" that all is just ducky with the U.S. economy and unemployment rates at a ludicrous low level

PRESS TV

Data analysis has previously shown economic downturn to provoke an increase in suicide rates, but a new study shows an even stronger correlation between suicides and foreclosure rates.


According to research published this week in the American Journal of Public Health, higher rates of suicide are uniquely linked to spikes in foreclosures.

By comparing state-by-state suicide rates with the numbers of issued foreclosures -- while accounting for other disruptive factors -- the researchers were able to conclude that the correlation was "independent of other economic factors associated with the recession."


"It seems that foreclosures affect suicide rates in two ways," explained Jason Houle, co-author of the new study and assistant professor of sociology at Dartmouth. "The loss of a home clearly impacts individuals and families, and can arouse feelings of loss, shame or regret."


"At the same time, rising foreclosure rates affect entire communities," Houle added, "because they're associated with a number of community-level resources and stresses, including an increase in crime, abandoned homes, and a sense of insecurity."



Not surprisingly, the correlation between suicide and foreclosure was highest among those ages 46 to 64 -- homeowners nearing retirement.

"Losing assets at that stage in life is likely to have a profound effect on mental health and well-being," Houle pointed out.

The study is bad news for the state of New Jersey, which recently passed Florida as the state with the highest rate of mortgages in foreclosure. UPI

To Fight Police Brutality, Albuquerque Police Promote Cop Who Burned Off Homeless Man's Ear - Videos

U.S. cops have long been completely out of control and will pay the price when they finally go too far; having military gear and knowing how to use it are two different things

RT
05/16/2014

In a controversial move following protests against deadly force by police in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the department has promoted a commander previously accused of burning off part of homeless man's ear with a taser.


Coward cops nothing without guns, military gear
The announcement came Thursday, with the Associated Press reporting that Albuquerque Police Department Chief Gordon Eden said the promotion of both Timothy Gonterman and Anthony Montano would help the force implement reforms outlined by the Department of Justice.

As RT reported previously, police in the area have come under fire for using excessive force in situations where it was deemed unnecessary. 



In a report on law enforcement's behavior, the Justice Department reviewed 20 fatal shootings between 2009 and 2013, concluding that most of the fatalities were unnecessary and that “systematic change” was needed moving forward.

Although a federal jury found Gonterman and two other officers used excessive force when they used a stun gun on a homeless man in 2002 – the man was awarded $300,000 for suffering from second- and third-degree burns – Eden said the officer has“demonstrated the strong leadership skills necessary for us to move ahead with DOJ reform requirements."





Gonterman also issued a statement regarding the stun gun incident, saying he made a mistake and that his experience since then will allow him to effectively train officers in the future.

"It was a mistake, and I have learned from that mistake. I have taken responsibility for it," he said, according to the AP. "Since that time, I have become a use of force instructor and a less lethal technology instructor to train officers to use the minimal amount of force necessary to make an arrest. I am also trained in crisis intervention."


However, for some Albuquerque police critics, such as University of Mexico professor David Correia, the promotion was “really troubling.”

"I think the promotion of Gonterman and his troubled history is the real evidence of what Albuquerque police is about," he told the AP, adding that protesters needed to put even more pressure on law enforcement in light of the news.

Police behavior in Albuquerque was thrust into the spotlight in March when police in the Foothills area confronted a homeless man who was camping at the base of a mountain. As the event unfolded, police fatally shot the man in the back. Notably, the Foothills area fell under the jurisdiction of Gonterman, though the AP stated it is unclear whether he or anyone under his command was involved in the confrontation.




Although there had been tension between police and local residents for years, the shooting triggered a large protest at City Hall, where protesters flooded the building and demanded more oversight over law enforcement. Soon afterwards, Mayor Richard Barry introduced legislation that would allow for more oversight, and the Justice Department opened its own investigation into the issue.

Since that DOJ report was issued, police have fatally shot one person: a 19-year-old woman who allegedly pointed a gun at an officer. The death marked the third one in five weeks at the hands of Albuquerque police

Former UT Fundraiser Sentenced To More Than 10 Years In Prison

Sentencing for U.S. pedophiles and kiddie porn purveyors increasingly lighter as pedophilia becomes more accepted; if current PC trends continue will eventually be legalised giving these Satanic monsters "protected" status:  Time for an open season on these evil scum  - no bag limit

A judge sentenced a former University of Tennessee fundraiser executive to a little more than 10 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to child porn charges.


Downsbrough
Former UT Foundation executive Bruce Downsbrough, 61, was sentenced in federal court Friday. He must serve a 121 month prison sentence, register as a sex offender and complete treatment. After his release, he will serve a 10-year supervised release under the following conditions: he can't be alone with children, and he can't use the internet without a probation officer's permission.


Last fall, Downsbrough pleaded guilty to knowingly receiving material containing child pornography and knowingly possessing child pornography.

His guilty plea came after officials seized a personal laptop, tablet, external hard drives and other items from his home during a search in November 2012. Investigators said they found 20,000 images and videos of child pornography.

During the sentencing hearing, Downsbrough admitted his guilt and responsibility to the court. He apologized to victims, family and the court but added he would never break the law again. He also paid $5,000 to five identified victims from the images. The court waived the $75,000 fine.

Downsbrough's defense attorney argued for 71 months, which was below the sentencing guidelines. The judge denied that request, but he did grant the defendant's request to serve his prison sentence in Englewood, Colo. Downsbrough's family plans to live in Colorado after he's released from prison.

The university fired Downsbrough after his arrest on campus.

Experts with Knoxville Police Department's "Internet Crimes Against Children" division also testified that the state uncovered past sex abuse charges against Downsbrough. More than 25 years ago, Downsbrough admitted to sexually abusing four boys, but that case was deferred and then dismissed. Police said Downsbrough was also charged with sexual assault in the third degree, but the state does not know the outcome of that case.


Downsbrough was the executive vice president and chief operating officer at the UT Foundation, which coordinates private donations benefiting UT students and faculty.

He was hired at the UT Foundation in 2003. Records show he had good reviews while serving as the assistant vice president and was promoted to his final positions in 2011.
