A Kent State University professor was charged in federal court with lying to the FBI.
Julio Pino, 58, of Kent, was charged via a criminal information with one count of making a false statement to law enforcement.
The charge was announced by U.S. Attorney Justin E. Herdman and FBI Special Agent in Charge Stephen D. Anthony.
According to the criminal information filed in U.S. District Court in Cleveland:
Pino was a Facebook friend of a St. Louis resident identified in the information at J.E. Pino posted numerous statements and images on social media regarding J.E. and J.E.’s child custody issues between May 2015 and January 2016.
Among these conversations, on or about September 11, 2015, Defendant and J.E. had the following communications:
J.E. wrote, “I’m playing the game backwards. and winning! . . . I will kill 100s of people if they take my rights as a father away!”
Pino stated, “Yes, in military terms this is known as ‘the Parthian shot’.”
J.E. wrote, “hell, 10000’s! . . . It’;s [sic] time for Men to act like men again. . . . See the thing I’ve got on my side is God. That allows me certain rights. One of those rights is to strike down evil with furious vengeance! . . . People don’t even know how crazy I am yet! That’s because no ones ever tried to take my [relative]. They’re about to meet to [the] Monster they’ve created.”
Pino responded, “Devour them, [J.E.].”
J.E. wrote, “Thank You! I will! :)
J.E. wrote on his Facebook wall a series of threatening communications in December 2015 through January 2016 directed against a St. Louis Family Court Judge adjudicating J.E.’s child custody case. On Jan. 11, 2016, J.E. also wrote on his own Facebook wall, “I (expletive) love Julio Pino, even if he does eventually do something that most consider horrible, I’ll still love him because I know him in a deeper way than most of you even could.”
Law enforcement authorities in St. Louis arrested J.E. on Jan. 11, 2016, for making threatening communications against the judge.
The FBI was involved in investigating J.E.’s threats against the judge. FBI agents on Jan. 18, 2016, interviewed Pino in Miami about his social media posts and comments concerning his interactions with J.E. and discussions with J.E. about J.E.’s child custody issues. The FBI agents recorded this interview in connection with an ongoing investigation concerning, among other things, Pino’s interactions with J.E. as described above.
Federal grand jury subpoenas from the Northern District of Ohio were issued during the course of that investigation. In response to questions from FBI agents concerning whether he ever had conversations with J.E. on the social media accounts, Pino, knowing full well the content of his social media interactions with J.E., stated he “never heard of [J.E. or] maybe I heard of him through the news,” he did not recall conversations with J.E. and that his conversations with J.E. were “invented conversation[s].” When asked again if he remembered the conversation with J.E., Pino responded, “I never heard of him, well maybe I heard of him through the news,” and then later stated, “the other way around it is certainly possible that he could have heard of me and made up this conversation, invented it.”
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal records, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
This investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Om Kakani and Michelle Baeppler.
An information is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
The white van struck eight to 10 people near Yonge Yonge Street and Finch Avenue just before 1:30 p.m., police said. The van then fled the scene, CBC reported.
Multiple pedestrians struck by van in Toronto
Numerous pedestrians have been struck by a white van on Yonge St. near Finch Ave., Toronto Police say.
Police say “multiple” pedestrians were hit just before 1:30 p.m. Monday, though they initially reported 8-10.
I only have a few things to add. There was a posting last week from the Islamic State of Losers asking for attacks, any attack in "The West. As well as some statements today advertising an upcoming message, from who we're not sure. Anyway the Jihadis are active at the moment.
The MO is exactly that if the Islamic State of Losers. To these people tolerance, the Canadian are nothing if not very tolerant, doesn't buy you anything except the next push to take more.
There is a suspect at Blazing Car Fur, we'll update this thread later. Remember a nut doesn't necessarily have to be IS connected to be influenced by IS or other terrorist propaganda to act.
We stand with out Canadian friends against the outright and indiscriminate murders committed today.
Although early reports indicated that the horrific crash might be terror related, government officials have said that Minassian is not associated with any organized terror group, and the suspect does not represent a larger threat to national security.
Bill Bratton, a former New York City police commissioner, had told MSNBC that his sources said the driver was known to police and the horrific crash was being considered a terrorist attack. But other sources are now saying the suspect was not associated with terror groups. ISIS channels have not promoted the attack or taken credit for it.
This is probably one of the instances that makes them say known to law enforcement.
Jonathan Dienst of NBC News reported that Minassian had allegedly researched and chatted online about the Isla Vista killings in California in 2014. The Isla Vista massacre occurred when 22-year-old Elliot Rodger killed six people and injured 14. He stabbed three men in his apartment, and then drove to a sorority house and shot three female students outside. Then Rodger drove to a deli and shot a male student, and then began driving through the city, shooting pedestrians and hitting some with his car. He was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
There's a lot more on him including that he created a Green Parking Phone Application for Toronto.

Whatever his affiliation, it appears he is learning by example. Copycat terrorism? Not good. USA, all the way!
A 29-year-old man credited with saving numerous lives Sunday morning after he disarmed a man who opened fire on an Antioch Waffle House said he was just trying to stay alive.
James Shaw Jr., 29, said after feeling cornered he saw an opportunity to tackle the man shooting into an Antioch Waffle House. He said he doesn’t feel like a hero.
But a Hero you are.

Imagine the leftist trap when the POLICE just say "Dont want to get involved, too much paperwork ..."
Remember that the Left advances iteslf by DESTROYING our Institutions and guantantures of Our Freedoms.
They (leftist scum) make sure that anyone who intervenes for the safety of someone else is PUNISHED.
Good work James! @fredrichF I agree they will probably take the AR-15 angle and run with it again, which is flat stupid unless your goal is to create a society of helpless infants. @JohnS I'd say it's worth pointing out that except for the odd ducks like Redneck Revolt, it is less common for 'leftists' to be gun collecting types, and at this time I see nothing to definitively pin any special beliefs on the attacker. Still there is a pattern of mentally ill people having the authorities drop the ball and letting them go crazy with an AR-15 ... like there is a pattern with Jihad and suicide bombers. Makes me wonder at the real cause here. Anyway, have a better day all.
USA, all the way!
@JohnS I would expect the attacker to be on the fringe left, but I have also run across some reports that he shares some ideas with libertarian/right and all I am saying is that the matter may not be so simple. However anyone outside a very narrow circle of leftism is almost certainly going to be labeled as being a far right extremist. 'Left' isn't left anymore. Lots of people who would describe themselves as being center-left are finding out that they are unclean in the eyes of the new orthodoxy, and for my own part, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. I'm all for reeling in all these cast off 'lefties' and red-pilling them. As a starting point I give the generic 'feels good' leftist room to be a human being who cares about most of the same things I do, but doesn't know it yet. I hope that explains my reluctance to agree, and no offense to you. USA, all the way!
Most troubling to me isn't his politics, but his mental health and the fact he was in the system, which didn't help. Instead he commits a multiple homicide with a headline grabbing rifle. Why? Also, why an AR-15? I would wager that this is statistically aberrant. USA, all the way!
Executive Director David Ibsen today released the following statement commending the InterContinental Hotels Group and the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites for prohibiting Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT), a group whose alumni include 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and former al-Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, to host its annual Khilafah Conference at the company’s location in Carol Stream, Illinois:
I'm glad about who got shut out on this particular occasion. On another level I can't quite celebrate this as a complete success.
We know who our adversaries are, and the poison they propagate, and naturally we want to bag it all up and haul it to the dumpster like the trash it is.
Unfortunately, the tactic used here is all to often used against people who speak out against the spread of terrorist ideology. If you have been on social media trying to reason with people, you probably know what I mean.
I firmly believe that this gives an excuse to other of our opposition to disallow "their venues to be used as a way of propagating rhetoric intended to encourage extremism" like for instance the preservation of national boundaries.
If we can't get platforms to reach people with information either, than is it really a victory? I don't know.
I will never understand why Jews insist on running around wearing clothes that absolutely identify them as Jews. Its like they have a rub-it-in-your-face sort of attitude. Those skull caps are the main object and those janky hair curls hanging down in front of their ears is another object. Can't they just let their Judaism be in their minds and hearts?
I don't mean to be insulting greg, but you should save some money and go see people elsewhere in the world. India, Africa other places. Not all people are like plain old Americans, even South America. As the proglodites scream, "Diversity! Culture!"
MMAN - A false alarm led to Syrian air defense missiles being fired overnight and no new attack on Syria took place, Syrian state media and a military commander said on Tuesday.
Syrian state TV reported overnight that anti-aircraft defenses had shot down missiles fired at an air base in the Homs area, and a media unit run by the Lebanese group Hezbollah said missiles had also targeted an air base near Damascus.
Syrian state news agency SANA cited a military source as saying a number of air defense missiles had been fired but no foreign attack had taken place.
Separately, a commander in the regional military alliance backing the government attributed the malfunction to "a joint electronic attack" by Israel and the United States targeting the Syrian radar system.
I wonder how much Putin will make replacing those missiles?
Who says we don't look our for our Russian pals...

Cold War III: Syria Bombing Theater
Its interesting that Russia didn't intervene and Syria had to use its own air defense.
Which means Putin gets to supply the replacements and is already talking upgrades.
:: Comments left behind ::
Yup, Syria humiliated the American missiles like Hiroshima Humiliated the American bomb.
For a few good years the Syria-ISIS thing drew in all the wandering jihadis and kept things a bit quieter in Chechnya, but that strategy has run its useful course. Putin is cutting his losses and walking away saying, "Good game, dude."
I dunno. I look at various photos of the damage and see cement rubble and a few bent pipes. If any of the few large plants I worked at were hit, there would be machinery and parts scattered Everywhere. These buildings were empty?
Maybe.....For someone with Mohammad in his name.....Murdering Savage who follow teachings of .....Mohammad.........Going to "Pound Me in Ass Prison".....Sort of like 9th grade kid going to ......Disneyland?
The Taliban overran the district of Khwaja Omari and killed at least eight people, including the district governor, earlier today. Seven policemen were also killed in the attack. Khwaja Omari was considered to have been one of the more secure districts in Ghazni province.
The attack and death of Ali Shams Dost, the district governor, and seven policemen was confirmed by the Ghazni provincial police, according to TOLONews. Nine other policemen were wounded during the fighting.
A statement released by the provincial police force said the Taliban launched the raid at 2:00 AM local time. The Taliban routinely launches strikes on district centers and military bases at night. Videos documenting the attacks often show Taliban fighters using night vision devices.
The Taliban torched the governor’s compound before withdrawing its forces. The police claimed that 27 Taliban fighters were killed in retaliatory airstrikes.
Progressive just means progressing government power, its a play on progress, wherein "progress" is equated with ever expanding government. Incrementalism, or the incremental taking of freedom, for the common good of course.

Remember that Hitler brought 'progress' to Germany ...
Only imbeciles and political manipulators pretend that 'all change is good'. We see them at work daily in our country foisting that Poison on the citizens.
I object all the time. No one gives a rats ass. Glad I am so old. There is no career or anything for the proglodites to wreck for me. But I can submit some high speed/low drag arguments if they care to actually engage me.
The teaching profession is one continuous belief that all change is good....it is the prime reason school are so screwed up and I am continually told my 'old fashioned' teaching method are bad despite my test scores kicking most everyone else's asses!!
I watched the first movie the weekend it came out. I watched the second movie with the woman that would become my wife the weekend IT came out. It has become the Disney never ending space opera. I'll wait for the DVD. But after Ep.VIII I may just say MEH and not bother.
A young Harrison Ford (American Graffiti) looks more mature than that high school kid who ever he is. But, I had no desire after the trailers, and skipped seeing the last two or maybe three starwars. This looks interesting, especially if he is a fast gunslinger and the trailer was not ALL the action.
