The Canadian Press: 2 alleged leaders of Mexican student gang shot to death in tourist zone of Oaxaca: "Two alleged leaders of a university student gang were shot to death Friday by gunmen on a motorcycle in the tourist zone of Mexico's colonial city of Oaxaca.
The killings occurred in front of the former convent of Santo Domingo, a popular tourist attraction in downtown Oaxaca.
The men's bodies lay on a sidewalk in front of the colonial-era building for some time after the attack. The gunmen fled and have not been identified.
Unidentified assailants wounded another prominent member of the gang Friday, but did not kill him.
The gang was accused of attacking anti-government protesters in 2006.
Oaxaca has largely been spared drug violence plaguing much of Mexico, but suffered anti-government political unrest in 2006.
And in the northern city of Chihuahua, unidentified assailants killed four employees of a bar, state prosecutors' spokesman Fidel Banuelos said.
The bar, located at the centre, was about to open for business for the first time."

Nevertheless, that’s where Niagara police found the double-barreled weapon when they raided a crack house in a Queenston Street apartment in St. Catharines Thursday.

Police had heard there might be a weapon inside the house before they executed a search warrant and also found ammunition for it as well as some crack cocaine and marijuana.

“The firearm was located in the bedroom stuffed under a pillow and appeared to be in working condition,” a police spokesman said, adding members of the St. Catharines Street Crime Unit had begun receiving information a week ago about a man living on Queenston Street selling crack cocaine. Further information suggested that this male was in possession of a firearm.

A 23-year-old St. Catharines man faces drug possession and trafficking charges as well as charges of possession of a prohibited firearm, careless storage of a firearm and proceeds of crime.

Posted On 12:51 0 comments

Mom Boucher stabbed in prison brawl: reports: "high-ranking member of the Hells Angels currently serving three life sentences in a Montreal-area jail was reportedly one of two men stabbed within the facility on Saturday.
Various media outlets are reporting that Maurice (Mom) Boucher received only minor injuries in the altercation in the Ste. Anne des Plaines detention centre.
Sûreté du Québec spokesperson Claude Ross confirmed the SQ responded to reports of an incident in the facility, where Boucher has been held for the past eight years, at around 3:15 p.m. There were four men involved in the altercation, Ross said, and two were injured. When the SQ arrived to escort them to hospital, they refused, leading investigators to conclude their wounds were not severe.
Investigators were still on the scene Saturday night meeting with all four men, Ross said. He could not confirm if Boucher was involved in the incident.
Boucher, the former leader of the Hells Angels' Montreal chapter, was convicted in 2002 of ordering the deaths of prison guards in an attempt to intimidate Quebec justice officials.
He survived a previous attack involving a makeshift knife in the prison's common room later that same year. Boucher was only slightly injured, but his attacker was stabbed 21 times by five other inmates who rushed to Boucher's aid."

Scot has ear, fingers & toes chopped off during drug gang kidnap ordeal in Portugal - The Daily Record: "SCOT had an ear, two fingers and three toes chopped off during a horrific kidnap ordeal over an alleged £10,000 drug debt.
James Ross, 26, was tortured in a villa on the Algarve for 13 days after being lured to Portugal by a gang of Brits.
Dad-of-two Ross, from Wick, Caithness, was found bleeding in the street in the village of Alfontes, near Loule, by Carlos Pereira.
Carlos said: 'He came staggering towards me, asking me to stop, waving his arms in the air.
'He had no left ear and was missing two fingers on his left hand, a toe from one foot and two from the other. He also had a leg wound.'
Ross told him he had been involved in a road accident.
Mr Pereira said: 'He was very white. He said, 'Please, please, telephone'. I decided to put him in my van and drove him to a square, near a cafe, and called the police.'
Alerted Northern Constabulary had ranked Ross as a 'high risk' missing person and alerted the UK Serious Organised Crime Agency and Portuguese cops.
Ross's sister Gayle last night said the family did not wish to comment, adding: 'We actually don't know anything. The police have never been in contact with us so I don't want to say any more.'
A Portuguese newspaper claimed Ross owed fellow Brit John Maclean £10,000 over a cannabis deal."

The Hartleys had gone to the lake “to photograph a historic, half-submerged church.” Three speedboats of drug cartel “pirates” began firing on the couple and, according to Mrs. Hartley, shot her husband four times, including twice in the back of the head, killing him. I say, according to Mrs. Hartley, because her husband’s body has yet to be found.
