Aafia Saddiqui's Trial in NYC postponed, for further info email Sarah Kunstler, NYC chapter of National Lawyers Guild is in the pocket of Al-Qaeda.

Aafia Saddiqui's Trial in NYC postponed, for further info email Sarah Kunstler, the New York City chapter of the National Lawyers Guild is in the pocket of Al-Qaeda.

The judge postponed the trial scheduled for July 2009. Apparently, a U.S. defense lawyer said the U.S.-trained scientist accused of being an al-Qaida operative may use a mental illness defense if she is brought to trial so they will put her through tests to see if she is competent.

The judge scheduled a hearing instead to determine if Siddiqui is competent to stand trial. She is charged with shooting at U.S. soldiers and FBI agents after her capture in Afghanistan.

The government says she is faking mental illness to avoid trial. Siddiqui may use mental illness as a defense at trial or may use a justification defense. Siddiqui studied at MIT and Brandies University before she fled to her native Pakistan in 2003.

Ali Al-Marri Pleads Guilty to Provide Material Support to Al-Qaeda, Cyanide Gas Plot , Uses #10 Telephone Code and Secret Email Accounts In USA.

FBI REPORT...Ali Al-Marri Pleads Guilty to Provide Material Support to Al-Qaeda, Cyanide Gas Plot , Uses #10 Telephone Code and Secret Email Accounts In USA.

WASHINGTON—Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marri, 43, a dual national of Saudi Arabia and Qatar, has pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to provide material support to al-Qaeda, Attorney General Eric Holder announced today.

Al-Marri entered his guilty plea at a hearing this afternoon before Judge Michael M. Mihm in U.S. District Court for the Central District of Illinois. In so doing, al-Marri admitted that he agreed with others to provide material support or resources to al-Qaeda in the form of personnel, including himself, to work under al-Qaeda’s direction and control with the intent to further the terrorist activity or terrorism objectives of al-Qaeda.

Judge Mihm scheduled sentencing for July 30, 2009. At sentencing, al-Marri faces up to 15 years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, a life term of supervised release, and a $100 mandatory special assessment
.
Ali al-Marri was an al-Qaeda ‘sleeper’ operative working on U.S. soil and directed by the chief planner of the 9-11 attacks. Al-Marri researched the use of chemical weapons, potential targets and maximum casualties,” said Arthur M. Cummings, II, Executive Assistant Director of the FBI’s National Security Branch.

Ali al-Marri today admitted that he traveled to central Illinois as an al-Qaeda operative the day before the Sept.11, 2001, attacks to plan and prepare for future acts of terrorism within the United States,” said Jeffrey B. Lang, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Central District of Illinois.

Between 1998 to 2001, al-Marri attended various terrorist training camps where he learned the use of weapons and operational security tradecraft that al-Qaeda employed to avoid detection, conceal their communications and protect their operations.

These methods included prearranged codes and other techniques to protect communications, counter-surveillance techniques and the protection of information on computers.

Al-Marri was instructed by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to enter the United States no later than Sept. 10, 2001, with an understanding that he was to remain in the United States for an undetermined length of time.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and al-Marri also set up a code through which they communicated. Al-Marri was instructed to conceal telephone numbers and other numbers to be used in e-mail addresses by using a numeric code (hereinafter, “10-code”). This code was used by al-Qaeda members, including al-Hawsawi and some of the Sept. 11th hijackers to conceal telephone numbers so as to avoid detection. Al-Marri was also provided contact information for several al-Qaeda associates which he stored in his personal PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) using the 10-code.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and al-Mari also used a pre-arranged code to disguise their email communications. The pre-arranged communication method referred to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed as “Muk.” Al-Marri was to refer to himself as “Abdo” in these communications and to send emails to HOR70@hotmail.com , an email account used by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

Through these emails, al-Marri was to keep Khalid Sheikh Mohammed apprised of his efforts to enter the United States, his contact information and his efforts to advance al Qaeda’s mission in the United States. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was to use these emails to pass on instructions to al-Marri.

Details of the prearranged code were stored in an address book that was found in an al-Qaeda safe house in Pakistan. The book contained the email address to be used by al-Marri, which was listed as farwaa@yahoo.com , along with the identification number for al-Marri of “038.” From this coded information, al-Marri used the email address of farwaa72@hotmail.com.

The address book also listed Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s email address as HOR70@hotmail.com .

From approximately June 2001 through August 2001, al-Marri communicated via email with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, as directed and agreed upon, about his attempts to gain entry into the United States via a student visa from Bradley University in Peoria, Ill..

He applied online to Bradley University using the same email address he used to communicate with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. To expedite his admission, he applied for a second bachelor’s degree instead of a master’s degree.

Once al-Marri learned he had been re-enrolled in Bradley University, he traveled to Dubai and met with al-Hawsawi, who provided him $10,000. Al-Marri then traveled to Pakistan to meet Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

Upon his return to Qatar, al-Marri applied for a new Qatari passport. He also obtained his student visa, but did not admit on his visa application that he had taken a trip to the United States in 2000, where he had established a fictitious business using a false name and stolen Social Security number, fraudulently obtaining a number of credit cards and opening several business accounts.

Al-Marri and his family arrived in the United States on Sept. 10, 2001. On Sept. 21, 2001, he traveled to another university in Illinois and created five new email accounts under different aliases. By this time, he knew al-Qaeda was responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and understood why Khalid Sheikh Mohammed had directed him to be in the United States before that date.

Al-Marri used these new e-mail accounts to inform Khalid Sheikh Mohammed that he had arrived safely in the United States. He also provided Khalid Sheikh Mohammed with his Peoria cellular telephone number.

From Sept. 23, 2001 through Nov. 4, 2001, al-Marri made several unsuccessful attempts to call al-Hawsawi and others he knew were al-Qaeda operatives. To conceal his communications efforts, he used prepaid calling cards at public pay phones in and around central and northern Illinois. Although the initial calls were made from payphones in the Peoria area, after al-Marri was interviewed by the FBI on Oct. 2, 2001, he expanded the calling area, sometimes traveling more 160 miles away to place calls.

Al-Marri also conducted online research of various cyanide compounds, including hydrogen cyanide, potassium cyanide, and sodium cyanide. He reviewed toxicity levels, locations where these items could be purchased, and specific pricing of the compounds (SUBWAY PLOT & POISON WATER SUPPLY PLOT). He also explored obtaining sulfuric acid, a well-known binary agent used in a hydrogen cyanide binary device to create cyanide gas. Al-Marri agrees that the government would prove at trial this is the method taught by al Qaeda for manufacturing cyanide gas.

Al-Marri agrees that the government would prove at trial that his research into cyanide compounds is consistent with research conducted by persons trained in camps teaching advanced poisons courses to terrorist organizations, including al Qaeda. He also agrees that the government would prove at trial that an almanac recovered in his residence was bookmarked at pages showing dams, waterways and tunnels in the United States, consistent with al Qaeda attack planning regarding the use of cyanide gases.

Finally, al-Marri used an “anonymizer” program on his laptop when surfing the internet. He agrees that the government would prove at trial that these types of programs are designed to allow individuals to anonymously search internet websites and programs, and that the program on his computer also erased all historical internet searches on a regular basis.

In December 2001, al-Marri was arrested on a material witness warrant issued in connection with the investigation of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

Tampa Car-Cloning Criminal Boss PABLO BARRIO Escapes, He Was On House Arrest, LOL

FBI Tampa, Press Release; For Immediate ReleaseApril 29, 2009. FBI Tampa Contact: Special Agent Dave Couvertier (813) 253-1033
Car-Cloning Criminal Boss Escapes.

Tampa, Florida—PABLO BARRIO, 54, was placed on house arrest (LOL what a joke) on April 16, 2009 and escaped during the morning of April 28, 2009 from his residence and is now a federal fugitive.

On March 24, 2009, BARRIO was arrested by federal authorities. BARRIO was the key subject of OPERATION DUAL IDENTITY, a joint investigation involving a major car-cloning scheme. This joint investigative effort was one of the largest auto theft cases in the United States.

Investigators suspected BARRIO may be headed for Mexico. He had access to a 2004 dark blue Chevrolet Tahoe, Florida license plate 936-IIL. BARRIO has family members residing in High Springs, Florida; he previously lived in Chicago, Illinois; and has connections throughout the state of Florida; Houston, Texas, and has family members in Cuba.

Investigators said the car cloning worked like this: Thieves would steal a vehicle and head to a neighboring state to find one matching the make, model and color. They would copy that vehicle identification number, forge a label, paste it on the number of the stolen car and drive off with impunity.

They would forge titles and ownership papers and often sell the car. As long as they stayed out of the state where the car was stolen, few complications could develop. The practice is called car cloning - two identical vehicles in two states, one identification number.

Some used car dealers (Tampa) who bought the cloned cars for less than they were worth are complicit in the scam, FBI officials said. Certain Tampa used car dealers have been involved in a car scam shipping stolen cars to Dubai for resale at 2 to 3 times the retail value that could be obtained in the USA, sweet deal !


The ring was based in Tampa but operated in Miami, Chicago and as far away as Mexico City, authorities said. It stole about 1,000 vehicles, less than half of which were recovered, before catching the attention of investigators in 2006. The losses amount to more than $25 million, agents say.

BARRIO is described as follows:
Race: White Male (Hispanic)Height: 5 feet 8 inches Weight: 170 pounds (Medium Build) Hair: Black w/ Gray... Eyes: Brown..Date of Birth: January 15, 1955

Anyone with information on BARRIO’s current whereabouts is asked to call the Tampa FBI Field Office at 1-866-838-1153 (toll free) or their local authorities.

SARASOTA-BRADENTON SERIAL ATTACKER TARGETS SINGLE MIDDLE AGED WHITE WOMEN, HOME ALONE.

SARASOTA-BRADENTON SERIAL ATTACKER TARGETS SINGLE MIDDLE AGED WHITE WOMEN, HOME ALONE.

Since mid February 2009 the Sarasota-Bradenton serial attacker has robbed, beaten, raped and murdered single middle aged white women almost at will, from early morning to late at night and sometimes in broad daylight as in one victims driveway, victims claim he said "he robs to feed a crack cocaine habit".

Cops have only one clue so far, DNA, from at least one of the rapes but who do you match the DNA to if the serial attacker has no arrest record and possibly never given up a DNA sample ? Hopefully this guy is in the system.

So far police and media reports indicate no pattern in the attacks, no set day of the week, no set times, but the attacks themselves targeting single middle aged white women home alone is in itself a pattern. The Sarasota-Bradenton serial attacker is able to access information on who is supposed to be living in the house, the age of the occupant, the race of the occupant (white) and the gender of the occupant along with medium income as all of the attacks have been in upper middle class neighborhoods.

In Sarasota and Bradenton property record information can be accessed online as to who is the owner at a certain address but this information gives only the owner's name not the age, race or income, it would indicate a single female owner, but again, no age and would not indicate if the house was used as a rental with other individuals living there.

What database gives number of occupants at an address with gender, race, medium income and age, who could have access to such information and use it to rob, beat, rape and murder single middle aged white women.

The Sarasota-Bradenton serial attacker "is working a pattern" of attacking middle aged white women, at least two men have come to the aid of their wives in two attacks, one was beaten severely, but the targets had been the middle aged women. The Sarasota-Bradenton serial attacker made one big mistake when he attacked Georgeann Smith on Jo-An Drive in Sarasota, she was much younger, 37, just recently moved into the house, not the home owner and had advanced black belt degree's in karate, the Sarasota-Bradenton serial attacker ended up killing her.

I would surmise that the Sarasota-Bradenton serial attacker is very computer literate and may be working daily at his job with the aid of a computer. The Sarasota-Bradenton serial attacker would most likely have a job that would keep him outside during the day, possibly working the streets of Sarasota-Bradenton before the attacks to verify database info on home owners. The Sarasota-Bradenton serial attacker would have a job that implies trustworthiness, most likely driving a vehicle with signage of the organization that he works for.

The Sarasota-Bradenton serial attacker has made statements to some of his victims that he robs to support a crack cocaine habit. Crack Cocaine works on the automatic nervous system, people who smoke crack get hyper, Crack can, in some cases, block the re-uptake of dopamine. If this happens the person will now find it a mission to get any sort of pleasure (like beating tied up women victims).


Investigators said the robber has taken cash, thousands of dollars in jewelry, computers and a 55-inch plasma television, but no links have been found at local Pawn Shops ? In each case detectives said the robber wears a black ski mask and gloves making any kind of description difficult. The victims range in age from 37 to 84. Police believe the man enjoys the attacks. "These ladies are getting hurt and not just hurt, I mean brutally hurt," said Sarasota Police Capt. Bill Spitler.

Habitual Crack Cocaine use may lead to cocaine psychosis, causing paranoia and hallucinations. The paranoia and depression can instigate violent behavior. The smoking of crack cocaine breaks down tooth enamel and creates tooth decay and loss, habitual users will have bad, discolored teeth.

The Sarasota-Bradenton serial attacker has been described by his victims as a white male, 35 to 55 years old, about 6' 0" tall and about 180 lbs, he binds his female victims and then beats them with a hand gun (he appears to get pleasure doing this). The Sarasota attacks took place North of Clark Rd and South of Bahia Vista with Proctor Rd the center point, at least two victims have been raped and one murdered, possibly all the attacks linked to the smoking of crack cocaine by the Sarasota-Bradenton serial attacker prior to the incident.

Confirmed Serial Attacker Of Women In Sarasota, He Has Beaten, Raped and Murdered Since Mid Feb. 2009

Confirmed Serial Attacker Of Women In Sarasota, He Has Beaten, Raped and Murdered Since Mid Feb. 2009.

Wednesday, Apr. 29, 2009, Sarasota sheriff blasts Manatee’s sketch release; SARASOTA — An effort by the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office to inform the public on the progress of an investigation of a confirmed serial attacker (murder) of women in Sarasota turned into a critique of the decision by Manatee investigators to release a sketch of a possible suspect in a similar attack in northwest Bradenton. UPDATE...Tuesday, May 26, 2009, Masked Man Beats and Rapes Woman In Her Home On Siesta Key, The Attack Mimics 10 Other Sarasota-Bradenton Home Invasion Serial Attacks of Women.

In recent weeks, sheriff’s offices in Sarasota and Manatee, along with police departments in Sarasota and Bradenton, have pledged to work together to find out if one man has beaten 10 women in brutal attacks in both counties.

But during the reading to the media of a prepared statement detailing DNA test results, Sarasota Sheriff’s Col. Steve Burns on Tuesday criticized the release of the sketch. “Continued circulation of that composite in regards to this overall investigation may be detrimental,” Burns said.

Earlier in the news conference, Burns had announced that DNA found in the Sarasota cases has confirmed that the same attacker is responsible for more than one of the attacks.

The attacker in the Home Invasions in Sarasota and Bradenton Fl has been described by victims as a white male, 5'10" to 6' 0" tall, about 175 to 185 lbs, 35 to 55 years old, he wears a BLACK SKI MASK and has made statements that he robs to feed a crack cocaine habit.

The DNA the Sarasota cops have obtained most likely came from the April 6th murder of Georgeann Smith, the black belt karate expert who fought back. Since the Sarasota cops have the DNA of the supposed attacker and they have no match in the system, it would lead me to believe the serial attacker (murderer) has no record, never been arrested, never been caught before.

The attacker appears to be targeting mostly middle-aged women, who live alone, creeping into their homes or yards and sneaking up behind them. He strikes them in the head, usually binds them with cords or rope he finds in their homes, then grabs cash, credit cards, jewelry and electronics.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Criminal Investigations Bureau at 941-861-4900 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers by calling 941-366-TIPS (8477), or online at www.sarasotacrimestoppers.com or via text message by texting TIP109 plus a message to CRIMES (274637).

Three Duka Brothers, Foreign-Born Muslims from Cherry Hill NJ, Sentenced to Life Prison Terms for Conspiring to Kill U.S. Soldiers at Fort Dix NJ.

WASHINGTON -- Three brothers who were convicted of plotting to kill members of the U.S. military during an armed attack on a military base were sentenced today to life prison terms, Ralph J. Marra Jr., Acting U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey; David Kris, Assistant Attorney General for National Security; and Janice K. Fedarcyk, Special Agent in Charge of the Philadelphia Division of the FBI, announced.

U.S. District Judge Robert B. Kugler sentenced Dritan Duka and Shain Duka to prison terms of life plus an additional, consecutive 30 years. The third brother, Eljvir Duka, received a life prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.
Judge Kugler, who presided over a 12-week trial of the Dukas and two other co-defendants, also ordered the Dukas to pay $125,000 in restitution to the Department of the Army for the costs of added security measures undertaken in response to the plot.

The final two defendants, Mohamad Ibrahim Shnewer and Serdar Tatar, are scheduled to be sentenced tomorrow by Judge Kugler.

"The hatred and contempt these young men hold for America and the rule of law was made abundantly clear during the investigation, at trial and even today as they spoke at their sentencings," said Acting U.S. Attorney Marra. "Not one word of contrition was heard from any of them, only more hatred and contempt. For their actions and their words, the sentences are appropriate to both protect the public from them and their deeply held, radical beliefs and to deter others who would act similarly."

"The sentences handed down today against these defendants underscore the importance of vigilance," said Special Agent in Charge Janice K. Fedarcyk, of the Philadelphia Division of the FBI. "We in law enforcement, at every level, must work together with the public to remain alert to, and responsive to, every threat to insure that terrorism threats do not become terrorist acts. Defeating terrorism remains the FBI’s top priority."

"These sentences are the culmination of an extensive federal, state and local law enforcement operation," said David Kris, Assistant Attorney General for National Security. "While these defendants were not members of an international terrorist organization, their homegrown plot to murder U.S. military personnel was no less serious or potentially deadly."

The case was tried by Deputy Assistant U.S. Attorney William E. Fitzpatrick and Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael A. Hammer, Jr., Chief of the U.S. Attorney’s Office Counter-Terrorism Unit.

The defendants’ arrests occurred on May 7, 2007, in Cherry Hill as Dritan and Shain Duka were meeting a confidential government witness to purchase four automatic M-16 rifles and three semi-automatic AK-47 rifles to be used in a future attack on military personnel. The other defendants were arrested at various locations at about the same time.

On Dec. 22, 2008, after 5½ days of deliberations, a jury convicted the three Duka brothers, Shnewer and Tatar on Count One of the seven-count Superseding Indictment that charged them with conspiracy to murder members of the U.S. military. The jury also convicted the Dukas and Shnewer of firearm offenses; including possession of machine guns. See below for conviction details on each of the defendants.

The evidence proved that one member of the group conducted surveillance at Fort Dix and Fort Monmouth in New Jersey, Dover Air Force Base in Delaware and the U.S. Coast Guard in Philadelphia. The co-conspirators obtained a detailed map of Fort Dix, where they hoped to use assault rifles to kill as many soldiers as possible, according to trial testimony and evidence.

During the trial, the jury viewed secretly recorded videotapes of the defendants performing small-arms training at a shooting range in the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania and watching training videos amongst themselves that included depictions of American soldiers being killed and of known foreign Islamic radicals urging jihad against the United States.

The defendants and the charges on which each was convicted are as follows:
Mohamad Ibrahim Shnewer, 24, of Cherry Hill: conspiracy to murder members of the members of the U.S. military, and the attempted possession of AK-47 semi-automatic assault weapons to be used in the attack.
Dritan Duka, 30 of Cherry Hill: conspiracy to murder members of the U.S. military; possession of machine guns; possession and attempted possession of machine guns in furtherance of a crime of violence; and two counts of possession of firearms by an illegal alien.
Shain Duka, 28, of Cherry Hill: conspiracy to murder members of the U.S. military; possession of machine guns; possession and attempted possession of machine guns in furtherance of a crime of violence; and two counts of possession of firearms by an illegal alien.
Eljvir Duka, 25, of Cherry Hill: conspiracy to murder members of the U.S. military, and possession of firearms by illegal aliens. The jury acquitted on one count of possession and attempted possession of machine guns in furtherance of a crime of violence.
Serdar Tatar, 25, of Philadelphia: conspiracy to murder members of the U.S. military.

A sixth co-defendant, Agron Abdullahu, 26, of Buena Vista Township, Atlantic County, pleaded guilty before Judge Kugler on Oct. 31, 2007, to aiding and abetting the Duka brothers’ illegal possession of weapons.

Abdullahu was arrested on May 7, 2007, along with the defendants convicted today. On March 31, 2008, Judge Kugler sentenced Abdullahu to 20 months in federal prison.

In determining the sentences, Judge Kugler consulted the advisory U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, which provide appropriate sentencing ranges that take into account the severity and characteristics of the offense, the defendant's criminal history, if any, and other factors. The judge, however, was not bound by those guidelines in determining a sentence.

Parole has been abolished in the federal system. Defendants who are given custodial terms must serve nearly all that time.

Rebranding Hate in the Age of Obama Like The Nationalist Coalition in St. Pete FL, Private Investigator Bill Warner Profiled These Groups Last Year !

NEWSWEEK MAY 4TH 2009 ISSUE, With an African-American president and the economy in bad shape, extremist groups are trying to enter the mainstream—and they're having some success.

It's hard to conduct accurate surveys of racists, who tend to exaggerate their strength and importance. But it's fair to say that in the Age of Obama, there's growing concern. This spring, the Southern Poverty Law Center released its annual "Year in Hate" report, which outlines that in 2008 the number of hate groups rose to 926, up 4 percent from 2007, and 54 percent since 2000.

(The SPLC doesn't measure the number of members in the groups.) An April Homeland Security intelligence report states that "the economic downturn and the election of the first African-American president present unique drivers for right-wing radicalization and recruitment."

Home foreclosures, unemployment and an inability to obtain credit "could create a fertile recruiting environment," the briefing adds, and extremist groups are aiming to "broaden their scope and appeal through propaganda." The haters are doing their best, in other words, to move out from the fringe and toward the mainstream—and they're boasting some success.

The Nationalist Coalition, a small outfit based in St. Petersburg, Fla., claims it has seen a jump in new members in just the past few months. In March, the Arizona chapter held a family "spaghetti night" meet and greet. Members also blanketed a Phoenix suburb with fliers depicting a white toddler and the word MISSING—an attempt to show that the future of the white race is in trouble.

One of its national chiefs, Todd Weingart, says the group does not condone violence and is composed of doctors and lawyers as well as blue-collar workers. "If it was only immigration or the economy or a nonwhite running the country, there wouldn't be this interest. We know that," he says. "It's the combination that is getting people to stand up and get interested."

Winston Smith, a host of the white-supremacist radio show "The Political Cesspool" in Millington, Tenn., says, "The emphasis is different now. We don't talk as much about what blacks have done to us; we're more focused on ourselves and our own culture."

The Nationalist Coalition. The Nationalist Coalition (and its recent predecessors, the National Vanguard and National Alliance) has been particularly active in Tampa and St. Petersburg Florida.

Its members have spread virulently racist and anti-Semitic propaganda in a variety of Florida towns and cities, have rented billboards promoting the group’s Web site, and have distributed racist music CDs.

One member developed a social networking Web site similar to MySpace intended for white supremacists. After Hurricane Katrina, National Vanguard members urged people to “Support White Victims of Hurricane Katrina.”

Indoctrination often starts on the Internet as seen above. Some crazies posting on MySpace, for instance, have called for armed revolution; at least one has referred to Barack Obama as "a dead man." But many leaders of white-supremacist groups and Web forums are toning down their rhetoric.

The aim is to attract the kind of person described as "the guy down the road who until now had his plasma TV and car in the garage, but just lost his job and won't find a new one because some illegal already has it."

DNA Links Some Sarasota Home Invasions, Detectives Say, The Supposed Sketch Is Not The Guy !

4/28/09..DNA links some Sarasota home invasions, detectives say, it would be “detrimental” for the media to continue circulating the supposed sketch of the attacker, it ain't the guy. At the news conference, Col. Steve Burns read from a prepared statement. He said a sketch released last week in a Manatee County case may not be the same suspect.

He said it could be “detrimental” for the media to continue circulating the picture, which was issued by the Manatee Sheriff’s Office. Investigators have looked at 10 attacks since Feb. 16. UPDATE..Tuesday, May 26, 2009, Masked Man Beats and Rapes Woman In Her Home On Siesta Key, The Attack Mimics 10 Other Sarasota-Bradenton Home Invasion Serial Attacks of Women.


The attacker in the Home Invasions in Sarasota and Bradenton Fl has been described by victims as a white male, 5'10" to 6' 0" tall, about 175 to 185 lbs, he wears a BLACK SKI MASK and has made statements that he robs to feed a crack cocaine habit. The DNA the Sarasota cops have obtained most likely came from the April 6th murder of Georgeann Smith, the black belt karate expert who fought back. Since the Sarasota cops have the DNA of the supposed attacker and they have no match in the system, it would lead me to believe the serial attacker (murderer) has no record, never been arrested, never been caught before.

The attacker appears to be targeting mostly middle-aged women, who live alone, creeping into their homes or yards and sneaking up behind them. He strikes them in the head, usually binds them with cords or rope he finds in their homes, then grabs cash, credit cards, jewelry and electronics.

Usually in cases like this, the Sarasota male perp would have recently moved into the area (Jan 2009) and had numerous prior address's around the country, a drifter, he could possibly have no prior arrest record and no DNA on file as he has gotten away with the same attacks in other parts of the country.

The Sarasota male perp would be single and living alone, he would be 35 to 53 years of age and he appears to work outside in the day time, working the Sarasota neighborhoods as he blends in. All of the attacks in Sarasota occurred North of Clark Road and centered on Proctor Road.

Some of the attacks on the five Sarasota woman appear to have occurred in broad daylight which leads me to believe the Sarasota male perp has some kind of job and marked vehicle that would not arouse suspicion as he cases the houses beforehand, a job that would imply that he had no criminal record and was trustworthy.

The male perp (attacker) in the Sarasota area must be also able to access information, (online), on who lives in the houses he cases, like from property records and to identify single women in a certain age bracket.

Ground Squirrel Tests Positive For Plague In California.

April 28th, 2009, Ground Squirrels Test Positive for Plague In California.

Blood samples collected from two ground squirrels at the Doane Valley Campground on Palomar Mountain CA have tested positive for plague.“We found plague in the same park at this time last year.


This is a little early for us to find plague up there," said Chris Conlan of the vector control division. "Usually, it's May or June before we see out first case, so we'll be keeping a close watch on that campground." Fleas can spread the plague to humans.

Campers should avoid contact with squirrels and their fleas,” said Gary Erbeck, director of the Department of Environmental Health.“Do not put your tents near squirrel burrows, do not feed the squirrels and warn your children not to play with the squirrels.”

Plague is a bacterial disease of wild rodents that can be transmitted to humans through the bite of infected fleas. To date, there have been no locally acquired human cases of plague reported in San Diego County.Flea populations are monitored, and control measures are taken at this campground, and others, to reduce the potential for human exposure.

Plague warning signs are posted in all areas where plague has been confirmed. Visitors, hikers and campers in rural mountain areas should look for these signs and always follow these precautions to prevent contact with fleas:
• Avoid contact with ground squirrels, chipmunks and other wild animals.
• Do not feed, touch or handle wild animals.
• Do not rest, camp or sleep near animal burrows in the ground.
• Protect pets by keeping them on a leash, use flea control, or best of all, leave pets at home.
• Contact your doctor immediately if you become ill within one week of visiting a known plague area. Symptoms include a sudden onset of fever, chills and tender swollen lymph nodes.
• Do not touch sick or dead animals; please report them to County Vector Control.

For more information about plague surveillance, call Vector Control at (858) 694-2888 or visit www.SDVector.com.

Sarasota Bradenton Home Invasions, During Daylight Hours, Attacker Pistol Whips Victims After Taking Items, One Dead.

Ten Home invasion attacks in Manatee and Sarasota, during daylight hours, at night and early morning. One against an 84-year-old woman, bound and pistol whipped last month in northwest Bradenton. UPDATE...Tuesday, May 26, 2009, Masked Man Beats and Rapes Woman In Her Home On Siesta Key, The Attack Mimics 10 Other Sarasota-Bradenton Home Invasion Serial Attacks of Women.

Attacker pistol whips victims after taking items and binding the victims, one dead, Georgeann Smith in Sarasota. Attacker always wears a black ski mask, appears to be white male, 35 to 55 years old, black hair, about 6' 0" tall and 180 lbs.

The most recent Home Invasion, an older couple (60's) on Riverview Boulevard Bradenton, brutally beaten last Monday April 20th 2009 at about 12:20 pm. It’s got usually tranquil neighborhoods on edge.

A man standing six feet and weighing about 180 pounds targets upper middle class residential neighborhoods and mostly female victims. In most cases the victims are much older than 50. He often wears dark colored clothing and a ski mask.

Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office Col. Steve Burns said a task force was formed between law enforcement agencies in Sarasota and Manatee counties in which detectives meet weekly to exchange information.

The attacks appear to have occurred in broad daylight which leads me to believe the male perp has some kind of job and marked vehicle that would not arouse suspicion as he cases the houses beforehand, a job that would imply that he had no criminal record and was trustworthy.

The male perp (attacker) must be also able to access information on who lives in the houses he cases, to identify single women in a certain age bracket. The attacks, which authorities say are unprecedented in their brutality and brazen nature, continue to have law enforcement on alert and residents terrified.

Detectives are still investigating if the break-ins have been committed by the same man, as they brace for the possibility of more attacks. “I have never seen anything like this, with this kind of violence in the daytime, so we are very concerned,” according to Manatee County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Dave Bristow.

The following is a list of home invasions (none on a Thursday) that are being included in the investigation:
1). February 16, 2009, Mon., in the 100 block of 26th St N.W. Bradenton
2).
