Florida Set to Adopt Lawful Open Carry of Handguns For CCP Holders with Senate Judiciary Committee Boss Greg Steube's Bill SB 140, I'm Ready.


Florida Set to Adopt Lawful Open Carry of Handguns For CCP Holders with Senate Judiciary Committee Boss Greg Steube's Bill SB 140, I'm Ready. Florida valid concealed carry permit holders will soon be able to open carry their handgun. I have accumulated a variety of open carry handgun holsters over the years, most of them are molded leather holsters. There is an old saying among experienced hand gunners, “Every step toward holster retention is a step away from rapid deployment.” In layman’s terms, this means that the harder it is for a bad guy to get your gun out of your holster, the harder it is for you to get it out when you need it. “Retention holsters,” are popular with law enforcement officers, competitive action pistol shooters and handgun hunters and the requirements of each community are markedly different. Some competitors use holsters that are molded or “boned” to the handgun such that there is tension the full length of the handgun. (These types of holsters are also very popular with concealed handgun licensees.) In terms of citizens carrying self-defense handguns, a threshold question needs to be addressed. Should Florida law require that handguns that are carried openly be in a holster? If the answer is yes, then the decision must be made as to whether a holster must have any specific level of retention features. 

The Florida law should require a “holster” but in the broadest context. It is likely that open-carry demonstrations with rifle and shotguns will prompt the Legislature to require that a handgun be put in “something,” but that “something” should not be limited to a traditional shoulder or belt holster. “Holster” should encompass any device designed to hold a handgun securely while being carried on the body. If a holster is required, then there should be no specified number of retention devices or features as there is no one-size-fits-all that would be appropriate throughout the State. It could also prove problematic for certain persons such as women, the elderly and those with certain medical problems like arthritis to draw from a law enforcement-style retention holster.
 
Republican lawmaker Greg Steube has filed a bill that would make Florida the 46th state to adopt lawful open carry of handguns while dropping a number of mandated gun free zones. The measure, filed late Friday by the new head of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, would modify state law to allow for open carry as long as one had a valid concealed carry permit. Steube, a former state representative who sponsored pro-gun legislation in his stint in the Florida House, was tapped to replace outgoing Senate Judiciary Chairman Miguel Diaz de la Portilla, R-Miami, who repeatedly blocked gun reforms. Steube’s measure, SB 140, is sweeping in the respect that it not only authorizes Florida’s 1.6 million concealed carry permit holders to carry openly, but also trims away a number of long standing gun free zones. Among the areas affected would be secondary schools, career centers, and local government meetings.

Despite some of the most pro-gun laws in the country, Florida is just one of five states in the country that ban open carry and are in the same club that includes California, New York, South Carolina and Illinois. Florida allowed open carry until 1977. The Florida Supreme Court is currently reviewing the 2012 case of a who was found guilty by a lower court for the open carry of a weapon outside of his home after his handgun, which he had a concealed carry permit for, became visible. With a ruling in that litigation likely before the start of the 2017 legislative session, lawmakers may be forced to codify a change should the high court strike the ban. Legislation to pass open carry in the last session became a litmus test for law enforcement, with the Florida Police Chiefs Association supporting the move in a 15-7 vote while the Florida Sheriffs Association had 47 of 67 member sheriffs opposing the measure. Each side had very vocal champions with Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri contending open carry is fundamentally dangerous and Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey arguing openly armed citizens represent a direct deterrent effect on crime.

Women Kidnapped: Gone Girls Possible Victims of Human Trafficking Along I-95 Bangor to Miami


Women Kidnapped: Gone Girls Possible Victims of Human Trafficking Along I-95 Bangor to Miami. FBI Report, each year FBI agents across America team up with police officers, sheriff's deputies, state attorneys, Homeland Security investigators, and others for a few days of posing as people buying or selling sex. This year, "hundreds of law enforcement officials took part in sting operations in hotels, casinos, truck stops, and other areas frequented by pimps, prostitutes, and their customers," the FBI reported. Seventy-four FBI-led "Child Exploitation Task Forces" orchestrated operations in 103 U.S. cities, with more than 400 different law-enforcement agencies participating in the October 13-16 efforts. And the payoff? According to the FBI, "82 sexually exploited juveniles" were recovered and "239 pimps and other individuals" arrested. The average age of the minors was just under 16-years-old. "This is a depressing day in law enforcement," said FBI Director James Comey, announcing Operation Cross Country 10 (OCCX) results at an International Association of Chiefs of Police gathering. The FBI Jacksonville Division operation along I-95 included the cooperation of multiple state and local law enforcement partnering agencies including the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Operations took place in a number of locations, including hotels, truck stops, and street corners.

Gone Girl Jennifer Kesse From Orlando Fl on Long List of Young Blond Females Missing In America Possibly Taken by Human Traffickers. Ten years after an Orlando woman disappeared without a trace in a case that has stumped investigators, police and the family of Jennifer Kesse are pleading with the public for information to help them solve the investigation. 

"We will not stop or let up on our efforts to locate Jen and bring her home,” the woman's father, Drew Kesse, told Fox News on Friday. “It has been a very long road and quite challenging at times but our hope is still strong and our strength is too until we can end Jennifer's personal hell," Kesse said. Known by friends and family simply as "Jenn," the 24-year-old Orlando woman was last seen alive on Jan. 23, 2006.

Jennifer Kesse, who lived alone, was reported missing by her parents the next day when she failed to show up for her job as a manager at Central Florida Investments. In a 2013 interview with FoxNews.com, Drew Kesse said he believed more than one person was responsible for his daughter’s disappearance. His theory is that Jenn was abducted while leaving her home early on Jan. 24, 2006 and that she never made it to her car. Drew Kesse had suggested his daughter -- 5-foot-8 with blond hair -- may have been taken by human traffickers and may no longer be in the country.
 

The Orlando Police Department had hoped for a break in the case when it released security footage of a person (male or female) seen parking Jennifer Kesse’s vehicle near a pool at an apartment complex and walking away. But the suspect – who appears to be between 5-foot-3 and 5-foot-5 – has never been identified.
 

The person seen walking away from kidnapped Jennifer Kesse’s vehicle is wearing a white short sleeved shirt and white slacks with dark shoes typical of people who work in large commercial kitchens in the food service industry. The person appears to have dark hair pulled back into a short 'bun' at the back of his/her head which is also also indicative of people who work in large kitchens in the food service industry, like in a hospital kitchen, there are several hospitals nearby to where Jennifer Keese's car was fond at 5176 Downing St, Orlando, FL 32839.
Friends Suspect Missing Mother Jayme Bowen Victim of Human Trafficking – WSYX ABC6 – Top Stories. Quote “Not only is my daughter missing, there are other girls missing,” said Jayme Bowen’s mother, Nancy Bowen. I have written extensively about numerous petite blond females who are here one day and the next they just disappear into thin air since June 3, 2011 when petite blonde female Lauren Spierer went missing, NBS news and others have copied my headline “Missing in America” and attached it to stories about other young petite blond females gone missing. Dateline NBC’s social and digital series ‘Missing in America’ began in December 2013 with a question to our Facebook community, “Do you know anyone who has simply vanished?”

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – Florida private investigator Bill Warner believes more than a dozen missing persons cases from Kentucky and surrounding states may be connected. The faces of the young women on Bill Warner’s blog are similar but behind each smile is a different family searching for answers. “It just escalated over the last two or three years” Bill Warner said. “It continued, the same profile, young female with long blond hair, same petite size, it just kept happening over and over and over again.” See WKYT CBS TV News Video at http://www.wkyt.com/home/headlines/Private-investigator-believes-Kentucky-missing-person-cases-may-be-related-239509891.html?ref=891

Who murdered Young Teens Abigail Williams and Liberty German in Delphi Indiana?


Who murdered Young Teens Abigail Williams and Liberty German in Delphi Indiana?  NYP.....Authorities in Indiana on Wednesday released a haunting, three-word audio clip extracted from video found on the phone of a 14-year-old girl who was found murdered with her friend last week.The video was taken by Liberty Rose Lynn German, 14, who was found on Feb. 14 along with Abigail Joyce Williams, 13, in a wooded area near the Delphi Historic Trail, roughly one-half mile upstream from the Monon High Bridge, where they were dropped off a day before to hang out, Indiana State Police Sgt. David Bursten told reporters. Bursten said a man can be heard saying “down the hill” on the recording, which was played several times for reporters during an update on the double murder investigation that has gripped Delphi, a town of roughly 3,000 people about 75 miles southwest of Indianapolis.

Indiana State Police Superintendent Douglas Carter said FBI Director James Comey has been briefed on the case, which has seemingly taken an emotional toll on him. “Words tend to escape during these periods of times,” Carter said. “Why Libby? Why Abby? Why Delphi? Why Carroll County? Why the region, why the state, why even the nation? I say that because this is a classic example that evil lives amongst us.” Greg Massa, assistant special agent in charge of the FBI’s Indianapolis field office added that there’s no indication that the murders are the work of a serial killer or are connected to other homicides in Indiana.
FBI Revealed Details: On February 13, 2017, Abigail Williams, age 13, and Liberty German, age 14, were hiking on the Delphi Historic Trail near the Monon High Bridge just east of Delphi in Carroll County, Indiana. Abigail and Liberty were reported missing to police after their parents were unable to locate them at the pick-up location. Volunteers subsequently discovered the girls’ bodies in the woods east of Delphi in Carroll County, Indiana, on February 14, 2017. Investigators have distributed a photo (shown above) of a person observed on the Delphi Historic Trail. The photo appears to depict a White male wearing blue jeans, a blue coat/jacket, and a hoodie. During the course of the investigation, preliminary evidence has led investigators to believe the aforementioned person is suspected of being involved in the murders of Abigail Williams and Liberty German.

FOX 13 News TAMPA -- Tampa City Council members are considering an ordinance that would change where some sexual predators live within the city. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, there are more than 800 sexual offenders living in Tampa. Many of them are clustered in one area: V.M Ybor off Nebraska Avenue. Many of them live crowded in rooming houses, where police make regular visits to make sure the offenders are in compliance. At a City Council meeting, residents expressed their frustration about it. "I have 75 predatory people living within a quarter-mile of my house," resident Kelly Grimsdale said.

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) Ybor residents want leaders to enforce sex offender anti-clustering provision. Ybor City residents are concerned Hillsborough County is not enforcing a rule that prevents clusters of sex offenders from living near each other. Many residents attended a city meeting to discuss their concerns. Kelly Grimsdale said she’s seen a drastic change in her neighborhood in the last five years. “Why is it that VM Ybor has 15 percent of all of the city’s predatory people living within the mile of the center of our neighborhood?” Grimsdale asked. She said more sex offenders are living in the neighborhood and that they’re living in clusters, a provision not allowed in the county’s ordinance.

Sarasota County Sheriff's Elite "Tactical Anti-Crime" Unit Team Gets Tongue Lashing by 'Criminal' Defense Attorney Varinia Van Ness For Not Giving Up Name Of C.I.



Sarasota County
Sheriff's Elite "Tactical Anti-Crime" Unit Team Gets Tongue Lashing by 'Criminal' Defense Attorney Varinia Van Ness For Not Giving Up Name Of C.I.. As usual, a criminal defense attorney is able to get a reduced sentence for a criminal who committed a serious crime by using and exposing the identity of a confidential informant to get what she wants, shame on Varinia Van Ness. The confidential informant who was riding in the pick up truck of Texas drug dealer Jose Julian Perez, (loaded with cocaine), is now a dead man walking because of 'Criminal' Defense Attorney Varinia Van Ness. The confidential informant was working directly with the Drug Enforcement Agency (D.E.A) and was a protected confidential informant (C.I.) and he had been in contact with the Sarasota County Sheriff's Elite "Tactical Anti-Crime" Unit as to when and where the load of cocaine would be in Sarasota county via I-75 in the truck of Texas drug dealer Jose Julian Perez who now knows the guy riding with him was a C.I. for the D.E. A.. "After all, they had plenty of cause to stop the driver, but had been told by the Drug Enforcement Administration that the confidential informant's life and his family would be in grave danger from a Mexican drug cartel if his existence became known, said Herald Tribune reporter Tom Lyons". 
The Gulf Cartel is a criminal syndicate and drug trafficking organization in Mexico, and perhaps one of the oldest organized crime groups in the country. It is currently based in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, directly across the border from Brownsville, Texas. Their network is international, and are believed to have dealings with crime groups in Europe, West Africa, Asia, Central America, South America, and the United States. Besides drug trafficking, the Gulf Cartel operates through protection rackets, assassinations, extortions, kidnappings, and other criminal activities. The members of the Gulf Cartel are known for intimidating the population and for being particularly violent. "Van Ness said Monday that the incident will likely haunt the four deputies for a long time, and could lead to "Brady disclosures" — information favorable to the defense that prosecutors are required to release about the credibility of their witnesses. "While I'm not privy to the investigation, the sheriff runs his department as he sees fit," Van Ness said. "These deputies will have to deal with this for the rest of their careers. Hopefully, the state will provide Brady materials to lawyers in every single case they're involved in. All defense attorneys should know, when these deputies are involved, that this situation happened." Drug dealer Jose Julian Perez's photo on left above from the current list of incarcerated Florida State prisoners indicates a much younger looking Perez, see photos above, than the mugshot taken of Jose Julian Perez on March 24th, 2016 on right above, it wold indicate that he did prior time in the Florida State Prison system, odd but no record of such, he is currently doing 4 years at the Lawtey Correctional Institute. Jose Julian Perez is from Brownsville TX, Mexican Gulf Cartel turf.
PHOTO ABOVE WAS A FIRE-FIGHT BETWEEN FEDERAL POLICE AND GULF DRUG CARTEL MEMBERS IN MATAMOROS, WHICH IS ACROSS THE RIVER FROM BROWNSVILLE TX AND ALSO WHAT HAPPENS TO INFORMANTS. Drug dealer Jose Julian Perez is from Brownsville Texas, he has a tattoo of 'brown town' on his right leg. Brownsville Texas is a hub for major drug cartel activity out of Matamoros. Matamoros, Mexico is the "sister city" of Brownsville, Texas only 3 1/2 miles and the Rio Grande river divide them. The Mexican city of Matamoros, just south of Brownsville, is controlled by the Gulf Cartel. The cartel controls all drug trafficking and human smuggling in the area. Sarasota 'Criminal' Defense Attorney Varinia Van Ness was incensed that cops did not reveal the existence of a confidential informant in the arrest of her client Jose Julian Perez out of Brownsville Texas, on the other hand would Attorney Varinia Van Ness provide the sheriff's department as to who paid her to defend drug dealer Jose Julian Perez?? Where did the cash or checks come from?? Attorney Varinia Van Ness should view the movie 'Sicario' to get a feel of what comes out of Matamoros and Brownsville Texas, reality check, it's all about the drugs. The investigation of drug dealer Jose Julian Perez was a D.E.A. operation all the way, they had the C.I. in the truck sitting next to Perez and the D.E.A. knew about the cocaine in the truck, it appears to me the D.E.A. got with the Sarasota Sheriff Dept to make the traffic stop and drug arrest and take over the case so that they would not have to reveal in court there was a C.I. in the investigation and arrest of drug dealer Jose Julian Perez. Now Mr. Perez's Gulf Cartel bosses are going to be hunting down this C.I. and his relatives for execution, way to go Attorney Varinia Van Ness, they cut heads off in Matamoros.
Jose Julian Perez was arrested by the Sarasota County Sheriff's Elite "Tactical Anti-Crime" Unit on March 24th, 2016 on I-75 heading South just past the Clark Rd exit, he was driving a single cab Green Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck with Texas license plates, as seen in the photo of his rental house at 2048 E. 19th Street Brownsville Texas above. Jose Perez was born and raised in Brownsville Texas, he carries a Texas drivers license, he appears to have no connection to Florida other than transporting cocaine for the Gulf Cartel to what looks like Fort Myers or Miami. Jose Julian Perez was not a drug kingpin, he appears to be a mule, a transporter of drugs, he has no money, he immediately applied for an Application for Criminal Indigent Status on March 24th, 2016 but was denied, something about $100,000 of cocaine in his truck. When advised that he was under arrest on March 24th, Perez claimed no knowledge of the packages of cocaine and requested legal counsel, 'Perez Knows The Drill Don't Talk And Lawyer Up Immediately". Attorney Varinia Van Ness took his case on April 21st, 2016.
March 24th, 2016 SARASOTA -- A Texas man is facing charges after deputies discovered about $100,000 worth of cocaine during a traffic stop on Thursday afternoon, March 24th, 2016 according to the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office. Jose Julian Perez, 37, is charged with trafficking cocaine. He is being held without bond at the Sarasota County jail. Perez was stopped around 4:30 p.m. Thursday on Interstate 75, just south of Clark Road in Sarasota, according to reports. After a K9 detected narcotics in a trash bag in the bed of the truck, Perez was asked if he had anything illegal in the truck and he denied that there was. The deputy searched the cab of the pickup truck and the bed. In the front, driver-side portion of the bed of the truck, a black trash bag was found and inside there were three individually packaged blocks wrapped heavily in duct tape, according to the report. A field test was done on the more than six pounds of cocaine and it tested. "Perez claimed no knowledge of the packages and requested legal counsel," the arrest report stated.


February 14th, 2017 Herald Tribune: The
Elite "Tactical Anti-Crime" Unit detectives, it was learned, lied about the reason for the stop. Instead of a random "drug interdiction" stop for a traffic violation, the team knew exactly where and when Perez, with the cocaine, would be driving on I-75 because a confidential informant working with the Drug Enforcement Administration was riding with Perez in the pickup. By lying under oath, the deputies believed they were "under the misguided belief that they needed to protect a federal confidential informant and as such they did not fully divulge their involvement in the traffic stop and the arrest of Mr. Perez," Mercurio wrote in the IA memo. The criminal case against Perez — which should have carried a 25-year minimum mandatory sentence — began to fall apart. Perez, a Brownsville, Texas, native, took a plea deal, and received a four-year sentence. During a criminal investigation of the perjury allegations, Sheriff's Office investigators concluded that the four detectives lied both in depositions and in their official reports specifically because they believed they were protecting the identity of a confidential informant. Internal affairs investigators referred the criminal case to the State Attorney's Office for review. Assistant State Attorney W. Earl Varn wrote in a letter that "probable cause does not exist for perjury regarding false statements given by deputies during depositions."
 
Mercurio wrote that the four deputies "were less than forthright" during a sworn deposition with Perez's defense attorney, Varinia Van Ness, when she asked them questions about the arrest, the confidential informant or how they became involved in the case. "Therefore their actions during the deposition constitutes conduct which creates doubt regarding their honesty as to each of the four deputies," Mercurio wrote. The IA chief concluded that there was "insufficient information" to sustain the other allegations that Hoffman had listed in the complaint.
