Kathleen Zellner files for new DNA testing that ‘will completely exonerate’ Making a Murderer subject Steven Avery

No one who is guilty, is going to allow this type of testing to be done. From fibers to contaminates to DNA to blood aging, all of those things are going to be done in this. So the most important thing you’re gonna wanna take away from this is,  no one who is guilty would ever allow this to happen. These tests are going to establish definitively the age of the blood in the victims vehicle. We are going to know through radio carbon or DNA methylation whether the blood in the RAV was planted from the 96′ vile.

For us the case is amazing as to how much forensic evidence there is that can be tested

For the public I think that it is also very encouraging, because we are going to find out one way or another if the evidence was planted.

We are going to be able to get test results that will completely exonerate Mr. Avery”

Just two weeks after news confirming the overturned conviction of co-accused nephew Brandon Dassey – Steven Avery’s lawyer Kathleen Zellner has filed for DNA testing of newly discovered evidence.

Zellner, a Chicago lawyer and legal director of the Midwest Innocence Project – took on Steven Avery’s case in January of this year after the highly acclaimed true crime documentary ‘Making a Murderer’ began to make ripples across legal communities around the United States.

Zellner filed motion on Friday August 26th with the The Wisconsin Court of Appeals. The new motion alleges that Steven Avery’s blood was planted in the victim’s car by law enforcement and wants the most scientific testing available to prove it.

The motion does not reveal any alternative suspects but does refer to an “Individual A and B” as being present at key moments.

See the motion here

Zellner is also asking the courts to allow a variety of new tests, including body fluid testing and testing on evidence not done before, such as on the victim’s battery cable in her car.

Zellner additionally wants new testing that could confirm the age of Avery’s blood found in the car of victim Teresa Halbach.

Previous legal representatives of Steven Avery had tried to prove the notion of blood being planted in the victim’s car in the 2006 trial. However, after an inconclusive test for a blood preservative known as EDTA – the former Avery legal team had their hands tied and were unable to prove their case. Now, almost ten years later – Kathleen Zellner has hopes that carbon dating can bypass the EDTA argument.

Steve Avery’s nephew Brendan Dassey was convicted in 2007 of first-degree intentional homicide, mutilation of a corpse and second-degree sexual assault in the killing of Teresa Halbach.

However, on August 12th 2016 – Dassey’s lawyer was granted a civil appeal petition and Dassey’s convictions were overturned. U.S. Magistrate Judge William E. Duffin based his respondent action on the fact that Dassey’s documented confession was coerced by police investigators.

See full petition here.

“The investigators repeatedly claimed to already know what happened on Oct. 31 and assured Dassey that he had nothing to worry about. These repeated false promises, when considered in conjunction with all relevant factors, most especially Dassey’s age, intellectual deficits, and the absence of a supportive adult, rendered Dassey’s confession involuntary under the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments.”

Dassey is to be released from custody within 90 days if the state does not refile. He is being held at Columbia Correctional Institution.

Bataclan security guards were ‘warned of ISIS Paris attacks’ in advance claims Eagles of Death Metals frontman

  • Jesse Hughes claims six security guards did not show up for work with one behaving oddly

Jesse Hughes has claimed security guards at the Bataclan knew about the terror attacks

The frontman of Eagles of Death Metal has claimed guards at the Bataclan theatre in Paris knew that ISIS would launch its sickening terror attack.

Jesse Hughes claimed six guards did not show up for work on the night of the gig at the Paris venue.

And he even said he asked for one guard to be removed from backstage security because he was behaving oddly.

The American band were performing on stage when ISIS jihadists stormed in and killed 89 people and wounded 200.

During an interview with FOX News, Hughes said: “When I first got to the venue and walked in, I walked past the dude who was supposed to be the security guard for the backstage….

“I immediately went to the promoter and said: ‘Who’s that guy? I want to put another dude on.

“…Eventually I found out that six or so wouldn’t show up at all.”

Hughes said it seemed “obvious” why they didn’t turn up to work.

The band cancelled the rest of their European tour last month after Hughes injured his finger.

The I Want You So Hard rocks were expected to perform eight further gigs after their emotional Paris return following the terror attacks in November .

However the band released a statement on their Facebook page confirming the gigs will no longer take place after Jesse tore a tendon in his finger.

The statement read: “Eagles of Death Metal has regrettably been forced to cancel the remainder of their European tour due to founder Jesse Hughes tearing a tendon in his finger.

“Hughes has tried to play through the injury during the current tour, but doctors have advised that the only way to properly heal it is to stop playing now, or risk further injury and having to cancel several weeks worth of shows.

“EODM will be cancelling the last eight shows of their current European run.”

Man who shot and killed 7 year old at soccer practice ‘believed someone was trying to perform mind control on him.’ – Police

Police: 7-year-old girl shot to death after soccer practice
Mon December 7, 2015

minimagick20151207318ljrgw_original_proportions[1]

TAYLOR POLICE

A 7-year-old girl died and her mother was injured after police said the two were gunned down by a family friend at the girl’s soccer practice.

Emma Watson Nowling, 7, and her mother, Sharon Elizabeth Watson, 37, were shot inside of their vehicle in the parking lot of a sports complex in Taylor, Michigan on December 3, police said in a news release.

They were allegedly shot by Timothy Nelson Obeshaw, 57, as they were preparing to leave the parking lot, according to the news release.

Obeshaw first shot the 7-year-old girl before opening fire on her mother. He then shot and killed himself, police said. A 9 mm pistol was found at the scene.

The little girl was transported to Children’s Hospital of Detroit with life-threatening injuries, where authorities said she was later pronounced dead. Her mother was taken to an area hospital in serious condition.

Authorities believe Obeshaw was a friend of the family’s. He had attended the girl’s soccer practices in the past and was seen acting friendly towards the girl and her mother before the attack, according to police.

“Obeshaw had been seen at the beginning of the practice embracing the young girl,” Chief of Police Mary Sclabassi said during a news conference. “She was embracing him back.”

Police still do not have a motive for the shootings, but witnesses and family members told police Obeshaw had started becoming mentally unstable and paranoid within the past year.

Detectives “found evidence that Obeshaw believed someone was trying to perform mind control on him,” Sclabassi said during the news conference. Sclabassi said there was also evidence indicating Obeshaw “thought someone was out to get him.”

“Unfortunately, this man’s apparent mental illness led to a little girl who just wanted to play soccer never going home again,” Sclabassi said.

9/11 photojournalist was at Stade De France during Paris terror event.

smc-4

Steve McCurry, the “photojournalist” who took the iconic “Afghan girl” photo, had a great view of the WTC towers on September 11, and took many photos at ground zero. According to him,

I’d gotten back from a month in Tibet at 8 p.m. on September 10. So on the morning of September 11 I’d been back about 12 hours. I live by Washington Square Park, and my office has a view of Lower Manhattan. I was there, going through mail with my assistant, when we got a phone call saying that the World Trade Center was on fire. I looked out my window and saw both towers were on fire.

I got my camera bag and went up on the roof of my building and started photographing the towers. We didn’t even know it was a plane, because we were up on the roof without the radio or TV. We all thought it was a fire that would eventually be put out—a terrible disaster, I mean both towers were on fire. I figured I’d shoot it from my roof for about 20 minutes and then go down to the base.

And then they just fell.

Gearóid Ó Colmáin: “ISIS is a creation of Western Intelligence”

“There is a war that is being waged using terrorist proxy groups and they are being used against nation states. […] You now have terrorist attacks being committed by terrorists funded, armed, and trained by Western intelligence agencies. There is NO such thing as ISIS. ISIS is a creation of the United States. We know that from official sources of the U.S. military themselves. Declassified documents from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) have confirmed that.”

 

Hours Before the Terror Attacks, Paris Practiced for a Mass Shooting

Hours Before the Terror Attacks, Paris Practiced for a Mass Shooting

Although dozens of victims suffered grave injuries, very few have died in hospitals.

November 17, 2015 — 12:58 PM EST

ifeyptvcfrdg

The world watched in horror as the death toll from the Paris terror attacks steadily climbed. By the time the three-hour rampage ended on Saturday and authorities put the number of those killed at 129, onlookers could only brace for worse news to come. More than 400 people received medical treatment at hospitals in the stricken city; dozens of them were listed in critical condition.

The second spike in the death toll never came. Just three of those hospitalized with grave injuries have died in the four days since the attacks.

The world-class status of the French health-care system deserves much of the credit. But a good deal of preparation, experience, and more than a little bit of lucky timing also helped save lives.

Since the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January, from which 16 people died, Paris-area ambulance crews and emergency personnel have taken part in regular exercises designed to test their readiness for possible attacks. One such exercise was held on Friday morning, the day of the latest terror attacks. In a twist of fate, the simulated emergency was a mass shooting, according to Dr. Mathieu Raux, emergency room chief at the Pitié-Salpetrière hospital in Paris.

During Friday’s exercise, trauma specialists used a centralized dispatch system to set priorities and direct victims to the ER best equipped to treat their injuries. Ambulance services made sure they were ready to roll, and hospitals verified that surgeons and staff could be quickly summoned to treat arriving victims. “We tested every link in the chain,” Raux said. Because Paris emergency physicians work 24-hour shifts, virtually every ER doctor on duty in the city Friday night had already taken part in the exercise earlier that day.

The training paid off at Pitié-Salpetrière, a sprawling medical complex in southeastern Paris that specializes in emergency treatment of what doctors call “penetration trauma,” such as gunshot wounds. The hospital was alerted to the attacks at 9:40 p.m., 20 minutes after explosions at the Stade de France marked the beginning of the rampage. Within an hour, just as the first ambulances were pulling up, Pitié-Salpetrière had 10 operating rooms prepared and fully staffed with surgeons and surgical nurses.

Pitié-Salpetrière received 52 victims in total, 25 of which had suffered critical injuries. “Some were shot in the head, some had bullets everywhere, in the chest, arms, legs,” Raux said. “I never, ever saw anything like it.”

Two patients at Pitié-Salpetrière died shortly after arrival and a third victim died at another hospital in the city, according to a spokeswoman for Paris’s public hospital system. No additional attack victims have died since Saturday, although 29 remained in intensive care as of Monday night.

Attack victims also benefited from the battlefield experience of veterans who now hold key positions in Paris’s emergency response system. Philippe Juvin, head of emergency services at the Georges Pompidou hospital, a major trauma center, served as an anesthesiologist in Afghanistan in 2008. In interviews during the past few days, Juvin told French news media that his experience helped prepare him for the 50 victims who streamed into his ER. Juvin told the Associated Press that he saw “gun battles, explosions, buildings on fire, accidents with casualties” during his time in Afghanistan. Still, the doctor said, he had “never seen as many victims at once.”

Raux is optimistic that most victims still hospitalized at Pitié-Salpetrière will survive. “These were young patients,” he said, “between 20 and 40 years.” That makes them strong and resilient, as well as fortunate that Paris’s first responders were ready for the worst.

Owners of the Bataclan were threatened seven years ago

 

Chilling video warned of attack on Paris Bataclan SEVEN years ago

 

The Mirror has unearthed footage of the chilling moment fanatics issued a direct threat to the owners for hosting pro-Israel events

The Bataclan theatre , where at least 89 people were killed by Islamic State gunmen, was warned that it would be targeted by Muslim fanatics.

The Mirror has unearthed footage of the chilling moment militants issued a direct threat to the owners for hosting pro-Israel events.

The gang of about 10 masked men recorded themselves demanding to speak to the management before threatening door staff, saying: “You will pay the consequences of your actions.

“We came here to pass along a small message. Be warned. Next time we won’t be coming here to talk.”

The disturbing four-and-a-half-minute clip is believed to have been filmed in 2008 and starts with the camera zooming in on the awning outside the entrance to the club before focusing on the Le Bataclan sign.

Around 10 men all wearing Arab head scarves covering their faces, are then seen crossing the road and walking in front of the camera.

One of the group menacingly walks up to two bouncers and speaking in French, asks to talk to “someone from the Bataclan administration”.

A group of revellers queuing up to into the club watch on in concern as the same man goes on a three-minute rant about their fury over the venue hosting “galas to raise fund for the Israeli army” adding “and we can’t continue to accept that”.

Between 2006 and 2009, the Bataclan is understood to have hosted the annual fundraising gala of the French Jewish Migdal, a non-profit group for the Israeli border police.

In the footage, one of the masked men goes on: “It has been four years now that evening galas are held here to raise fund for the Israeli army .

“It happens each month of January and for a number of years.

“We are youth from several districts in the suburbs of Paris and we support the Palestinian people.

“Many people in the neighbourhoods start to crack because of this provocation.

“We are clear, determined. And we don’t this gala to be held. We will have the means to meet the director in order to give them this message directly.”

The group then walk away from the front entrance before the same man, standing alongside his mashed gang members, speaks directly into the camera before delivering a prophetic warning.

“This is a provocation that has gone on for a number of years.

“And many youths in our neighbourhoods want to react. Because only the associations have reacted a little bit.

“Our message is for the Bataclan owners – you will be held responsible for your actions.

“This message is also for the organisers, the Migdal.

“This pro-Israeli organization is racist and Islamophobic, insulting all the time Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims. You will pay for your actions.

“That’s very serious what you’re doing. And this is a message for all those who are preoccupied by the implications of these provocations.

“You must know that things are moving in our neighbourhoods. And things are getting hot.

“The next time, we won’t be here to talk.”

French police are understood to have been made aware of the incident and at least one other threat against the nightspot.
