1…………> The “Nike Shoes” Bandits: Queens


Five Queens residents identified as Miyuki Suen, Jian Min Huang, Songhua Qu, Kin Lui Chen, and Fang Qu were charged according to an investigation by ICE Homeland Security Investigations.

The arrest was due to conspiracy to traffic more than $70 million worth of counterfeit Nike Air Jordans by importing hundreds-of-thousands of athletic shoes from China into the United States. Once those shoes arrived, the defendants and other co-conspirators affixed counterfeit Nike-trademarked logos to those shoes in New York and sold the now-counterfeit Air Jordans in the United States.

“These five individuals are alleged to have been a part of a large-scale counterfeiting scheme, importing nearly a half million pairs of knock-off Nike sneakers,” said Angel M. Melendez, special agent in charge for HSI New York. “These counterfeiting networks can be both detrimental to our economy and threaten our national security, and HSI will continue to take every measure in investigating and dismantling these organizations.”





2…………> MS-13 Murderers: In Prison


A federal grand jury sitting in Nashville, Tennessee today, returned a five-count indictment, charging two members of the MS-13 gang identified as Oscar Degaldo Flores, aka Flaco, 24, of El Salvador, and Luis Colindres, aka Listo and Joe, 21, of Honduras,  with murder in aid of racketeering.

They were also charged with conspiracy; witness tampering; using, carrying and discharging a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence; and causing death through the use of a gun. The indictment alleges that on Sept. 24, 2017, Flores and Colindres shot and killed an individual identified as “H.Z.” and also shot and killed another individual identified as “Y.H.,” in order to prevent that individual from communicating with law enforcement about the commission of their crimes, including the murder of “H.Z.”





3…………> The Barcelona Jihadists: The Hunt Continues


An explosion blew-up a small, white house in the Spanish coastal town of Alcanar last August, the blast sending debris hundreds of feet away by the force of the blast, including the bodies of two men that landed in nearby gardens.

The next day a van attack was launched on pedestrians in Barcelona’s central tourist avenue, Las Ramblas. Hours later there was another attack, in Cambrils, a coastal town. Sixteen people died, and more than 130 were injured.

Catalonia had come under attack from a jihadist gang of 11 people, and authorities believed that they had planned to target Barcelona’s Sagrada and the Paris Eiffel Tower.

But the main question still remains: How come the police missed clues and intelligence hints even though the jihadist Es Satty had been known to the authorities for years? Poliiticalcorrectnesss perhaps? Don’t bet against it.
