Gangster ordered hit on nurse over botched penis enlargement

70-year-old Yakuza kingpin Satoru Nomura, don of the Kudo-kai crime syndicate, demanded “organized retaliation” after penis enlargement surgery failed his expectations. Nomura allegedly ordered a hit on the female nurse who participated in the penis empowering procedure.

The Japan Times reports that the crime boss “unjustifiably resented the failed surgery” and blamed the phallus failure on the nurse.

On her way home from the clinic, the nurse was stabbed in the neck and chest by an underling of Nomura.

Carfentanil Death Toll rising - 4X Narcan required

The powerful opioid carfentanil has claimed another 5 lives in the Minneapolis area.

A 52-year-old inmate, identified as Larance Curtis McMorris is the fourth confirmed death in Milwaukee County from carfentanil.

Carfentanil has killed four people in Maryland in recent weeks. In Alberta there have been 21 deaths in the first three months of 2017 directly attributed to Carfentanil.
Two Sarasota men are behind bars, facing felony drug charges after they sold cops more than 67 grams of Carfentanil. Undercover detectives had coordinated several drug transactions between Michael Sandusky, 23, and Michael White, 28. Detectives later learned what they thought was heroin was actually Carfentanil

Vincent "Vinny Ocean" Palermo - The Real Tony Soprano

Vincent "Vinny Ocean" PalermoVincent "Vinny Ocean" Palermo (born June 4, 1944) is a former de facto boss of the New Jersey DeCavalcante crime family who eventually became a government witness. Fictional mob boss Tony Soprano is based upon Palermo.

In the early 1960s, Vincent Palermo met and married the niece of mob boss Sam DeCavalcante. DeCavalcante took a liking to his son-in-law and began inviting him to visit his social club in Kenilworth, New Jersey. He worked at the fish markets in the early morning hours and hung out with mobsters on Sunday afternoons.

Local authorities uncovered the scheme and started investigating Weiss, and the two mob families became nervous. Gambino boss John Gotti requested that the DeCavalcante family murder Weiss.
On September 11, 1989, Palermo, Anthony Capo, and James "Jimmy" Gallo murdered Fred Weiss, on orders from DeCavalcante boss Giovanni "John the Eagle" Riggi. Weiss was associated with mobsters from both the DeCavalcante family and the New York Gambino crime family.

Weiss and his mob partners had purchased a vacant property in Staten Island and illegally dumped large amounts of dangerous medical waste there.

Palermo was quickly 'made' and shortly after was appointed caporegime and given his own crew. Riggi was sent to prison in 1989, and he appointed John "Johnny Boy" D'Amato as his acting boss. However, D'Amato's disgruntled girlfriend alleged in 1992 that he was bisexual. Riggi ordered Palermo and Anthony Capo to murder D'Amato in order to avoid embarrassment to the DeCavalcante family. In early 1992, D'Amato disappeared and his body was never found.

By the mid-90s, Vinny Palermo was the de facto boss of the family, paralleling Tony Soprano in the Sopranos, and John Riggi was the boss in absentia from jail.

After testifying for the government, Vincent Palermo and his family entered the federal Witness Protection Program.
In 1998, the FBI recruited DeCavalcante associate Ralph Guarino as a mob informant who devastated the DeCavalcante family. The agency gave him cell phones rigged with surveillance equipment to distribute to other family members. In October 1998, Vincent Palermo's trusted lieutenant Joseph Masella was shot to death, leaving an opening in the family. Guarino was promoted to made man.

In 1999, the FBI moved in on the DeCavalcante family. Palermo decided to become a government witness. He confessed to killing Weiss and mobster Louis LaRasso and to planning the murders of John D'Amato, Joseph Masella, Charles Majuri, Frank D'Amato, and Tom Salvata. He also implicated other DeCavalcante family members in various crimes.

Vincent "Vinny Ocean" Palermo
On September 14, 2009, the New York Daily News exposed Vinny Ocean's new life in witness protection as a strip club operator in Houston, Texas. The 'Penthouse Club' and 'All-Star Men's Club' were hotbeds of prostitution and drugs according to police. He also owned a Mexican restaurant and a car wash - all next to one another in a gritty section of Houston.

On March 4, 2013, Palermo filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition in U.S. Bankruptcy Court. Under Chapter 11, a person's assets and debts are not liquidated, but the filer is given court protection from creditors.

Palermo put his $2.45 million home up for sale in September 2015.

Face of a Killer - Johnny Steven Drynock

Charges have been laid in connection with a fatal daylight shooting in Surrey two months ago. Birinderjeet Bhangu was gunned down in broad daylight on March 13 outside a hotel in the 8200-block of 166 Street. Johnny Steven Drynock, 22, has now been charged with first-degree murder.

Bhangu was a well recognized gangster with links to the Red Scorpions and Wolf Pack. He had a criminal record dating back more than a decade for driving offences, property crimes and drug trafficking.
IHIT released footage Friday of the suspect in the March 13th murder of gangster Birinderjeet Bhangu outside a Surrey hotel.
Bhangu, 29, was a well-known gangster. He had a criminal record dating back more than a decade. He had just parked his Acura in front of the Comfort Inn Hotel when the suspect walked over to the driver’s side of Bhangu’s car and started shooting.

The killer was driving a Nissan Pathfinder that was recovered in Kelowna the next day.

1 in 3 Cigarettes Sold in Ontario are Contraband

Cigarette manufacturing machine
Contraband was highest in northern Ontario, where illegal cigarettes now represent 64% of all cigarettes purchased, the highest rate ever observed. In southern Ontario, 35% of cigarettes were illegal while the figure was lower, at 28% in eastern Ontario and Ottawa. The contraband tobacco trade is fueled by 50 illegal cigarette factories, based mostly in Ontario and Quebec, each of which can produce as many as 10,000 cigarettes a minute.
Ontario had the worst contraband tobacco problem in Canada to begin with- about 1 in 3 of all cigarettes purchased in the province illegal. Contraband was highest in Northern and Ottawa/Eastern Ontario, where illegal cigarettes represented 51% and 36% of all cigarettes purchased. About 1 in 4 cigarettes in the GTA and 29% in Southern Ontario were illegal.

While non-smokers don't care, perhaps they should. The Ontario government is losing out on $700 million to $1.1 billion annually in taxes. Criminal gangs are involved in cigarette distribution across the province. Organized crime treats cigarette smuggling like a cash cow because it’s been low risk and high profit.
Illegal cigarette factories are located on First Nation reserves; cigarettes manufactured for First Nations communities under treaties are then diverted to the black market.
The gangs get about 60 percent of the profits, which undermines the theory that First Nations communities are the main beneficiaries. The market is huge, much bigger than the market for drugs. The Ontario government has been slow to react to the problem. Quebec amended its Tobacco Tax Act, granting local police full authority to conduct investigations and allowing them to seize the proceeds of crime.

Smoke shacks line Route 132 in Kahnawake, a Mohawk Territory, west of Montreal.
Under section 87 of Canada’s Indian Act, the personal property of a registered or status First Nations individual living on a reserve is exempt from taxation. Ontario’s Tobacco Tax Act includes a First Nations cigarette allocation system which permits First Nations individuals to buy allocation cigarettes on a reserve, for their exclusive use. Those cigarettes are exempt from Ontario tobacco tax. Who can, and cannot, purchase cigarettes from First Nations retailers is spelled out clearly in the act.
With a carton of cigarettes at a corner or grocery store in the $95 range, and a carton of off-brand smokes running $33 to $39 on the reserves, it’s easy to see why First Nations retailers are so popular. At least 95 per cent -- perhaps 99 per cent -- of smoke shack customers are not of First Nations heritage.

White Boy Posse gang leader Josh Petrin convicted of third murder

Josh Petrin was handed a 10-year sentence after pleading guilty to manslaughter for the 2008 shooting death of Mitchell Chambers, 23. This was Petrin's third homicide conviction. The 34-year-old was convicted of manslaughter in November for ordering two of his gang associates to kill a Lloydminster man, and he is already serving a life sentence for first-degree murder for the 2012 shooting death of 34-year-old Lorry Ann Santos.

Petrin was the leader of the Edmonton faction.
The WBP is loosely associated with white supremacist groups but is best know for working for the Independent Soldiers and the Hells Angels at the street level drug trafficking trade. A supposed white supremacist gang serving at the behest of organized crime giant the Hells Angels makes sense. The White Boy Posse has in turn done the very same thing and recruited 'The Red Alert' native gang to expand.

Made up of Cree, Anishinaabe, and Metis, both gangs are about making money, not ideology.

Former top Hells Angel should get jail for role in gambling ring - Crown

Sentencing arguments were heard for Billy Miller, former head of the North Toronto chapter of the Hells Angels, who was found guilty earlier this year of participating in the bookmaking operations of a sports-betting enterprise linked to biker gangs and the Italian Mafia.

The operation, called Platinum Sportsbook, ran a website off servers in Costa Rica that used to take bets from thousands of gamblers across Southern Ontario on everything from horse racing to college football.

Hells Angels Billy Miller
Miller, 54, was acquitted on an extortion charge but convicted of bookmaking "for the benefit of, at the direction of, or in association with" Platinum, a crime under Section 467.12 of the Criminal Code. The maximum penalty is 14 years in prison, though the Crown asked the judge for a jail sentence of one to two years.
Miller, who has a criminal record for weapons and gaming-related charges dating back to 2003, was given an opportunity to make a statement but declined. The court heard he now mostly lives in the Dominican Republic, where he's involved in a cigar business. The man who prosecutors allege was the ultimate leader of the business, David Hair, is scheduled to go on trial next year.

Anthony Getschel charged in death of former UFC fighter Ryan Jimmo - Update II

The trial date for one of the accused, Jordan Wagner, 21 — who was charged with being an accessory after the fact as investigators believe he may have been in the passenger seat of the truck that struck Jimmo — approaches in June. Anthony Getschel, 23, was charged with second-degree murder, negligence causing death, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and failing to stop at the scene of an accident. He is awaiting trial. Jimmo was involved in a verbal altercation before he was hit by the vehicle. The men in the truck, Anthony Getschel and Jordan Wagner, fled but were arrested less than a week later.

Former UFC light heavyweight Ryan Jimmo proposed to his girlfriend Roxie Reece, hours before he was fatally struck by two assailants in a truck at a parking lot in Edmonton.

Reece said they came from the movies where Jimmo had proposed to her, and were on their way home when the truck began tailgating them. "So we took a left to let them go by. They followed Ryan even more close. And so now he and I were both like 'OK what's going on?' And then he took the first right into that parking lot … I had no clue where we were at," Reece recalled. "So these guys pulled up real close right behind Ryan, almost as if they were going to hit us, and we both felt nervous. And Ryan felt the need to do something because we didn't want them following us out of there. It was kind of scary. There was something not right there and I didn't know what was going on."

After a conversation, the two men hit Jimmo, then sped off. Jimmo was rushed to a hospital, but was pronounced dead hours later due to blunt force trauma.

Anthony Getschel
Police in Edmonton have charged two people in the hit-and-run death of former UFC fighter Ryan Jimmo. Jimmo was fatally injured early Sunday following a verbal argument that escalated into a fight in the parking lot of a bar. Jimmo died from blunt force trauma after being run over by a vehicle.

Anthony Getschel, 23, faces several charges, including second-degree murder and criminal negligence causing death. Jordan Wagner, 21, is charged with accessory after the fact to murder.

Edmonton police are investigating the hit-and-run death of former UFC fighter Ryan Jimmo. Investigators say Jimmo, 34, was fatally injured early Sunday morning following an altercation in a parking lot.

Police say he had approached the driver of a vehicle and was walking back to his own car when he was struck by a truck, which then fled the scene.
Jimmo, who was born in Saint John, New Brunswick, was pronounced dead in hospital. Jimmo went 19-5 in his MMA career, with a 3-4 record in seven UFC fights, his last fight being a loss to Francimar Barroso at UFC Fight Night 67 in May 2015.

The native Maritimer had most recently lived in Arizona after stints in Edmonton and Halifax.

Bacon Murder Trial Begins

Kelowna’s most notorious murder case was back in court on Monday. Three men have applied to have their charges dismissed in the 2011 first-degree murder of Jonathan Bacon and the wounding of four other people. The gang slaying shocked the city when Bacon, leader of the Red Scorpions gang, was gunned down outside the Grand Hotel in broad daylight on Aug. 14, 2011.
During the shooting, Hells Angel Larry Amero, Independent Soldiers member James Raich, Leah Hadden-Watts, niece of the Haney Hells Angels president, and another woman were all inside the Porsche SUV and injured in the gunfire.

Leah Hayden-Watts, was permanently paralyzed in the shooting
Jones, McBride and Khun-Khun were arrested in February 2013, a year and a half after the shooting took place. They have remained in custody for over four years. Defence is spending the first week of trial attempting to have the charges dismissed based on a Supreme Court of Canada ruling last summer. The R. v. Jordan case determined that a Supreme Court case should take no longer than 30 months from when charges are laid, barring delays caused by defence and other exceptional circumstances.The voir dire, a trial within a trial, is expected to wrap up this week, but it's unknown when a decision will be made on the matter.
