ALBUQUERQUE, NM – A former lea county sheriff’s deputy who raped a 9-year-old girl has been sentenced to 18 years in prison.Image

Danny Surratt, 62, was sentenced Wednesday morning.

After he gets out of jail, he will be placed on intense supervised parole and must register as a sex offender.

This is not the only trial Surratt will face. When authorities were investigating the rape claims from the 9-year-old, a 16-year-old came forward saying Surratt had also assaulted her when she was little.

Both incidents happened while Surratt was a lea county deputy.

David Ranta has suffered a massive heart attack just two days after being exonerated of murder and leaving prison for the first time in 23 years, his attorney told ABCNews.com.

Lawyer Pierre Sussman said that Ranta, 58, was being treated in an New York hospital after suffering a severe heart attack Friday night. He did not provide further details.

Ranta was freed from prison Thursday after serving 23 years of a 37.5 year sentence for the murder of Brooklyn rabbi Chaskel Werzberger in 1990.

Ranta left a Brooklyn courtroom Thursday after a judge said he was free to go and his family cheered. On the way out he told reporters that the sensation of walking freely out of the courthouse was “overwhelming.”

Wrongly Convicted Man Freed After 23 Years Watch Video
“I said from the beginning,” Ranta said. “I had nothing to do with this case.” When asked what he was going to do next, he responded, “Get the hell out of here.”

Ranta had been spending time with his family after his release. Sussman declined to provide details or to identify the hospital to protect Ranta’s privacy.

The rabbi was killed after a botched jewelry heist and Ranta was convicted of the killing despite his protests of innocence.

Over the last two decades the case against Ranta began to crumble. In 2011 an eyewitness, who was a child at the time of the murder, came forward to say he had been coached to pick Ranta out of a line up. A subsequent investigation by the Conviction Integrity Unit of the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office determined Ranta’s case had been mishandled by police.

On Thursday Ranta’s family, including siblings and his pregnant daughter who was just 2 when he was arrested, were on hand when Judge Miriam Cyrulnik cleared his name. Ranta’s parents died, while he was in prison.

“It’s clear that the effects of this case have been devastating,” Cyrulnik said. “To say I’m sorry for what you have endured would be an understatement.”

Prosecutors say they now suspect the murderer is man who died two months after Werzberger was killed. They did not name him.
Cleveland County sheriff’s deputies say a Rutherford County man has died while trying to steal a catalytic converter from a wrecked car.
April 1, 2013-Doesn’t pay to steal on Easter…
Deputies say 28-year-old Daniel Yount died early Sunday morning.

Deputies say Yount and 32-year-old Dawn Bradley had entered a business southeast of Shelby around 5 a.m. on Easter morning. The company has a number of wrecked and disabled cars and customers can pay to remove salvageable parts.

Investigators say Yount had jacked up a vehicle and was trying to remove a catalytic converter when the jack slipped and the vehicle fell on him. He died at the scene.

Bradley has been charged with trespassing and attempted larceny.

It was unclear if she has an attorney.

The judge who charged former president Nicolas Sarkozy with taking financial advantage of France’s richest woman has received a bullet and a death threat in the post, say lawyers.

Jean-Michel Gentil, the most prominent of three judges investigating the case, received the threatening letter together with blank cartridges on Wednesday, the magistrate’s union SM said in a statement published on its website.

One of Gentil’s colleagues said the letter, which arrived at the judge’s offices in Bordeaux, contained threats against other magistrates. Police had been called in to investigate, the colleague added.

The SM, in its online statement, denounced what it called “insulting statements” made by some of Sarkozy’s political allies which it said were designed to undermine the work of the judiciary.

It noted too that Sarkozy’s own lawyer, Thierry Herzog, had questioned Gentil’s impartiality.

The SM said a number of its members were targeted in the letter. Gentil is not a member of the union, one colleague told AFP.

Sarkozy’s lawyers are attempting to overturn last week’s decision by three examining magistrates to charge him in a case that threatens to destroy his hopes of a political comeback.

He has repeatedly denied claims he accepted cash-stuffed envelopes from the world’s richest woman Liliane Bettencourt to fund his successful 2007 campaign. Medical experts say the mental faculties of the L’Oreal heiress began to deteriorate in 2006.

Sarkozy’s lawyer Herzog questioned Gentil’s impartiality in an interview with Sunday newspaper Journal du Dimanche.

Gentil last June put his name to an opinion column signed by dozens of legal professionals in the leading newspaper Le Monde accusing Sarkozy and his predecessor Jacques Chirac of “wishing to protect the corrupt”, he pointed out.

Herzog said that five days after signing the column, Gentil ordered police to search Sarkozy’s home, office and his secretary’s house.

A number of Sarkozy’s political supporters have also denounced the judge.

On Monday, Sarkozy used his Facebook page to insist he had not taken advantage of Bettencourt and vowed to clear his name.

With the right divided by in-fighting Sarkozy had, in recent weeks, hinted that he was considering a return to the frontline of French politics.

He suggested in one interview that he could be forced to re-enter the fray out of a sense of duty to his country.

Last week’s decision by the judges to put him under formal investigation dealt a blow to those hopes.

Sarkozy could face up to three years in jail, a fine of 375,000 euros ($480,000), and a five-year ban from public office if convicted.
ImagePOLICE are free to use Tasers on children as young as 10, against the explicit warnings of the manufacturer of the device.
Stun guns have been deployed 149 times against juveniles in NSW alone since 2008 with the youngest offender just 10 years old.
Nearly half of the juveniles were under 17, one quarter were under 16, 18 were under 15 and six under 13.
Anna Brown, a solicitor with the Human Rights Law Centre, said the death of Brazilian student Roberto Laudisio Curti, who was 21 when he died after being hit by numerous Taser shots in February last year, highlighted the fact Tasers can be deadly and called for police to enact stricter controls on their use on children.
“We are talking about weapons that are highly dangerous and there should be extreme limitations and warnings when it comes to certain groups like young people, the elderly and pregnant women,” Ms Brown said.
Police confirmed there was no reference to Taser use on juveniles in standard operating procedures.
“In short, the Taser can only be discharged in accordance with the criteria for use,” a police spokesman said.
“This relates to the nature of the threat as opposed to the age of the person involved. There are no specific age restrictions.”
Police Minister Michael Gallacher confirmed through a spokesman he supported police in their use of Tasers on juveniles. “We have some of the strongest best-practices in the world with regards to Tasers,” the spokesman said. “It is hard to ask age when someone is running at you with a knife.”
Taser International, the manufacturer of the device, warns in the product manual that Tasers can cause “physiological and/or metabolic effects that may increase the risk of death or serious injury,” and that use near the chest of children can cause extra heartbeats, or cardiac capture, which can be fatal and more likely in children due to their size.
Taser International also advises Taser use on a “pregnant, infirm, elderly, small child, or low body mass index person could increase the risk of death or serious injury”.
A 13-year-old boy from Casino claims police used a Taser on him in an arrest for an alleged car theft on February 5 – a claim denied by police.
The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told The Sunday Telegraph he felt a shock and fell over as he tried to run away. “I felt a big shock into my body and I couldn’t walk after that,” he said.
Police took the boy to his mother’s home at 2am after the alleged Tasering.

Police brutality stories are legion, and the epidemic of hostile encounters is only increasing as police become increasingly militarized. The mindset between a true law enforcement officer and those who view their terrain as a battlefield cannot be overstated. Beyond all of their new toys to inflict “distress,” a.k.a. non-lethal weapons, the minds of many police have been brainwashed to perceive a constant state of threat when interacting with the public.

Most of us remember the line of seated peaceful protesters at U.C. Davis doused with pepper spray by police. Or who could forget the image of female protesters being sprayed like bugs by this thug in a police outfit while they were already in an enclosed area during Occupy Wall Street?

These are acts of sadism, pure and simple. Well, sadism rarely knows any bounds . . . nor does a police state. Enter the latest police brutality horror story . . . .

Marilyn Taylor is suing the City of New York, the NYPD and Officers Maripily Clase, Suranjit Dey and Jermaine Hodge in Federal Court on behalf of her family after an incident at a New York subway put them in confrontation with police officers.

The officers stopped her on suspicion of skipping a fare because they saw her pushing the stroller through a service entrance rather than the turnstile, Taylor says in the complaint.

“The aggressiveness of the officers’ demeanors had upset the four-year-old daughter, and her mother bent down to console her and tell her, ‘everything will be OK,” the complaint states.

But everything was not OK. Taylor says Officer Dey pepper-sprayed her, causing her to fall to her knees and nearly fall from the platform. She says the spray hit every member of the family.

“The pepper-spray caused the children to scream out and choked the two-year old, who went into fits of vomiting,” the complaint states.

“Ms. Taylor was then placed in handcuffs as the minor children cried in fear and pain.”

While many adults have become inured to tales of police brutality . . . and even have come to expect such a possibility upon their persons, this complaint also address the impact upon the emotional development of children who are subjected to being raised within a police state:

(Taylor) says she and the children needed medical attention because of the lingering effects of the spray.

“After the attack, mother and father suffered ongoing eye injuries and all three children suffer emotional harms, and are now afraid to ride the subways and become afraid when they see police officers. The four year-old cried herself to sleep for weeks, and after the incident the two-year-old began waking up in the night crying for her mother,” the complaint states.

Those who tend to make excuses for such police behavior might play Devil’s Advocate by citing some provocation, or perhaps some overzealousness. Or, perhaps upon reflection the officers might feel some remorse. Apparently not:

Taylor claims that the officers have continued to harass her family.

“Since the incident, plaintiffs have suffered repeated harassment from the officer defendants, forcing them to avoid the MTA through the Atlantic Avenue stop,” the complaint states.

The family seeks punitive damages for civil rights violations, assault, battery, negligence, and violations to the state and federal constitutions,”

Naturally, this case must be decided upon in a court of law, and the defense should have their say. But given the progression of out-of-control police behavior, this is just the type of story that has to make us wonder what is next?

Note: Pepper spray is supposed to be relatively benign, especially according to Megyn Kelly of Fox News who has infamously stated that it’s an all-natural product, so what’s the problem? Sayer Ji, however, countered her health tip with a compelling article that shows how pepper or not — it is still a potentially lethal chemical weapon. Regardless, one would rightly assume it’s not recommended for use on babies.

Here is what the creator of pepper spray has to say about how his chemical invention is being used:

Here’s a calm me down bit for all you readers, as also like to keep you informed!
According to a report by the United Nations, about 70% of the Earth’s fresh water is used for agricultural irrigation. Of the water used in agriculture, only about half of it can be reused, because much of it evaporates or is lost during transit. Some of the crops that require the most water include soybeans, cotton, rice and sugarcane. Some experts are concerned about water waste and encourage the development of new technologies that could improve irrigation efficiency. They also recommend removing water subsidies, which would increase the cost of water and force users to be more conscious of irrigation management.

More about water use:

Water covers about 70% of the Earth, and 97.5% of it is saltwater.

Modern irrigation methods have negatively affected fish populations in many areas.

The countries that use the greatest volume of water include India, China, the United States and the Russian Federation.
