    A self-styled "creep catcher" who publicly shamed, filmed and posted to the internet images of his "citizen's arrests" of purported paedophiles could soon be released from jail.

    Connor Bevins, 22, quickly gained an online following of thousands for his "Palmy Creep Catchers" Facebook and Youtube posts of him confronting men he claimed were meeting under-age girls and boys for sex.

    But in some cases he'd told people he'd lured into his trap, using dating websites or apps, the people they thought they were speaking to were over the legal age for sex.

    In other cases, he'd pretended to be younger than 16, but his targets didn't believe him, in one case because they'd seen Bevins' profile picture.

    Some of the men he'd posted video online of had suicidal thoughts afterwards and one died by suicide 20 days after the video of Bevins confronting him was published.

    In April, Bevins was jailed for two years and eight months for posting harmful digital communications, but in a just-released decision, the High Court has granted Bevins' appeal against the sentence.

    Justice Francis Cooke instead imposed a sentence of two years' jail, giving Bevins permission to apply to the district court for home detention instead, which would be for 12 months.

    The judge ruled the district court was too harsh in the "starting point" it adopted for sentencing calculations.

    But Cooke said the offending was at the "upper end of the scale".

    In the case of the man who died by suicide, Bevins had chatted with him online, purporting to be a 25-year-old woman.

    When the man turned up to the arranged meeting place with the "woman", outside the Palmerston North courthouse, Bevins approached the car, opened the door and yelled: "We're here from Palmy Creep Catchers. You're here to meet a 15-year-old girl for underage sex."

    Bevins later told police the man "should have a bullet in his head".

    Cooke said in all but one case the men lured by Bevins had no reason to believe they might have been chatting online with someone underage, and the person who thought they were talking with someone underage was clear no sex could take place.

    "Mr Bevins was engaged in vigilante action and he involved other persons in the retribution action that was involved," Cooke said.

    "The actions assumed guilt and ran the risk of erroneous victimisation. This is a particularly concerning aspect of the offending. In the present case, the victims were innocent of having committed any offences."

    Cooke did not agree with defence lawyer William Kronast that Bevins should have received a larger discount than three months for mental health problems, on top the discounts he received for his youth.

    Bevins suffers symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder after "severe trauma" in his childhood.

    "As a child, Mr Bevins was emotionally and physically neglected by his parents and subject to sexual abuse. He also has a long history of substance abuse."

    Cooke said Bevins now had a good understanding of his mental health problems.

    Bevins has past convictions for breaching supervision and community work sentences, which Cooke said suggested a risk Bevins wouldn't comply with home detention conditions.

    "Mr Bevins has displayed a callous attitude towards his offending and appears to justify his actions on the basis of his history of sexual abuse and is adamant his actions were well-intentioned."

    However, Cooke said it wasn't too late for Bevins to turn his life around and undergo counselling for past trauma and substance problems.

    MEXICO CITY (AP) — Vigilante attacks and mob justice appeared to be on the rise in Mexico this week as violence mounted, more than two dozen bodies appeared along roadsides and the government ruled out any new crackdown on criminal gangs.

    Prosecutors in the northern state of Sinaloa said Thursday five young men have been murdered in recent days, and in all five cases toy cars were carefully placed atop their corpses. The men were apparently car thieves, and the toys indicated both the reason they were killed and served as a warning to other thieves.

    The latest such murder came Wednesday. Prosecutors said the victim had been identified as the same man seen on security camera footage earlier that day stealing a pickup truck at gunpoint from a woman outside her home in the state capital, Culiacan.


    That same day, a total of seven suspected kidnappers were killed by townspeople in the largest mass lynching in recent memory in the central state of Puebla. Some were beaten, some hanged.

    The National Human Rights Commission said 43 people have been killed in lynchings so far this year, and 173 injured. That was up from the already-record year for mob justice in 2018.

    “Those who take justice into their own hands commit acts of barbarism, not justice,” the commission said.

    Vigilantes say they have to act because authorities won’t crack down on criminal gangs, which have become more brazen and have begun returning to the grisly mass executions that marked Mexico’s 2006-2012 drug war.

    On Thursday, the notoriously violent Jalisco cartel killed 19 people whose bodies — in some cases dismembered — were left hanging from an overpass and strewn along a highway in the western state of Michoacan. Another set of four dismembered bodies were found in plastic garbage bags the same day on a highway in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz, and a few hours later, five more bodies were found wrapped in garbage bags elsewhere in the state.

    It was in Michoacan that Mexico’s last big anti-gang offensive was launched in 2006; and it was also in Michoacan where the country’s biggest vigilante movement was started in 2013. Back then, farmers and ranchers rose up in arms to drive the Caballeros Templarios drug cartel out of the state with the help of the army and federal police.

    Elements of those government forces have now been merged into the National Guard, a force that, under President Andr?s Manuel L?pez Obrador, has been loath to confront residents and criminals, in part because L?pez Obrador discourages the use of force.


    In July, villagers protecting fuel thieves in Puebla shoved aside armed National Guard forces and burned two of their patrol vehicles. In May, an armed gang in Michoacan abducted five soldiers to demand their army unit return illegal weapons soldiers had seized from the gang. L?pez Obrador later personally congratulated the unit for avoiding violence.

    Hip?lito Mora, one of the founders of the 2013 Michoacan vigilante movement, said such tactics appear unlikely to work against violent, heavily armed cartels.

    “The authorities should give the armed forces more leeway, not limit them, not allow organized crime gangs to throw stones at them and burn their vehicles,” said Mora, who now has returned to working his lime orchards but still has the weapons he used in the vigilante movement.

    “They (the cartels) grow when they are not stopped and the armed forces don’t defend themselves,” Mora said. “They say, ‘We can do whatever we want.’”

    But L?pez Obrador said Friday he won’t be drawn into the kind of army offensive that then-President Felipe Calderon launched against the cartels in 2006, when he sent troops to Michoacan. Over 100,000 homicides occurred in the next several years.

    “We are not going to fall into the trap of declaring war like they did before,” L?pez Obrador. “That is what led us to this situation of crime and violence.”

    Instead, the president vowed to continue with programs to give youths jobs, training and education programs so they won’t be recruited by drug cartels.

    “We are going to continue treating the root causes of the violence,” he said. “Peace and tranquility are the products of justice, and that may take time, but it is the best strategy.”

    L?pez Obrador said he’s well aware of the historical parallels.

    “It was precisely there, in Michoacan, where they declared war on drug trafficking, and they kicked a hornets’ nest, and that caused a lot of suffering and damage for the people of Mexico.”

    Mexico is still grappling with the lingering tragedy of the last drug war: the search for over 40,000 people who disappeared, never to be seen again. Relatives and activists have taken up the search themselves, digging in clandestine grave sites used by drug and kidnapping gangs.

    On Thursday, activists declared they had closed the largest, longest such excavation carried out to date, a total of 156 burial pits excavated over three years that contained at least 298 bodies and thousands of bone fragments.

    Relatives expressed certainty that no bodies remained in the vast burial field known as Colinas de Santa Fe in Veracruz state.

    Two boda boda riders have been charged with killing a man suspected to be behind a spate of crime.
    A public inquest probing the death of the victim linked them to the attack.
    Benson Wasike and Bonface Sifuna were charged with lynching Lazarus Wanjala, 45, on November 3, 2018 at Sidikho Village, Navakholo Sub-County.

    The two, according to court papers, were alleged to have picked the deceased and linked him with criminal activities, beat him jointly with others not before court.
    Prior to his death, the deceased is said to have separated with his wife over domestic wrangles.
    Wanjala warned that he would set the woman's parents' house ablaze if she did not return.
    He made true his threats and burned the house in October 2018, killing livestock by stabbing them at night.
    The actions are said to have infuriated the residents, making them mount a manhunt for him to revenge.

    Wasike, 41, and Sifuna, 26, are said to have accosted the deceased in Dorofu village, Bungoma.
    They ferried him to Navakholo where they allegedly assaulted him with crude weapons.
    The area assistant chief notified officers from the Navakholo Police Station, who found the body burned.
    Initially, it was reported to be a mob justice but a public inquest was instituted to probe the murder.
    Meanwhile, the body was taken to Kakamega County General Hospital for autopsy.

    The inquest pointed an accusing finger at the two, who were said to have been the last people seen with Wanjala.
    The body had severe burns.
    The two were arrested eight months after the incident, where they were subjected to a psychiatric test to ascertain whether they were fit to stand trial.
    Wasike and Sifuna denied the murder charge before High Court judge Jesse Njagi.
    They were granted Sh500,000 bond with a surety of similar amount each.

    David Carlson is on trial again for the shooting of an accused rapist.

    GOSHEN — A prosecutor delivered his opening statement Thursday in Orange County Court in the new manslaughter trial of a Deerpark man who shot and killed a fugitive in 2013.

    David Carlson, 48, shot and killed Norris Acosta-Sanchez, 35, of Ramapo, outside a neighbor’s home on Old Plank Road in the hamlet of Sparrowbush. Carlson and his lawyer, Benjamin Ostrer, contend that Carlson fired twice in self-defense as he perceived that Acosta-Sanchez, who was wanted on a second-degree rape warrant and who had eluded police for three days, lunged for him.

    At the time, Carlson had marched the wanted man from his own home and up the road at the point of a shotgun. The defense says he wanted a neighbor to call 911.

    A jury cleared Carlson of a murder charge in 2016 but convicted him of first-degree manslaughter. Earlier this year, he won a new trial on appeal on the first- and second-degree manslaughter counts from the indictment. Carlson opted for a bench trial this time, so Judge Robert Freehill will weigh the law and the evidence and determine the verdict.

    On Thursday, the special prosecutor, Westchester County Deputy District Attorney Timothy Ward, made his opening statement, reiterating the prosecution’s position that instead of calling police or 911 when Acosta-Sanchez showed up at his door on Oct. 11, 2013, Carlson decided to take matters into his own hands. Ward said that by Carlson’s own statement to police, Acosta-Sanchez begged and pleaded to be let go as Carlson marched him up the road, twice firing the gun into the ground to compel Acosta-Sanchez to move.

    The first shot from Carlson’s Remington pump-action shotgun struck Acosta-Sanchez in the left arm, Ward said, and the wounded man reached his right arm to his left shoulder and yelled at Carlson for shooting him.

    “The defendant then racked what he knew to be his last round of ammunition — racked the weapon — and fired at the left side of Norris’ head, killing him instantly,” Ward said.

    Ostrer will make his opening statement when the trial resumes on Sept. 24. Freehill scheduled out 11 dates from late September through late October for trial testimony. Carlson remains free on bond.

    A Corona man says he fears going outside after being attacked Thursday at a bar in Norco by men who mistook him for the perpetrator in a child annoyance case.

    Corona police have confirmed Kevin Martin is not the man who made sexual comments to an 11-year-old girl the morning of May 22.

    Kevin Martin is seen at left, and at right is the composite sketch of a child annoyance suspect released May 23, 2019, by the Corona Police Department.
    Kevin Martin is seen at left, and at right is the composite sketch of a child annoyance suspect released May 23, 2019, by the Corona Police Department.

    When investigators released a computer-generated composite sketch of the suspect the day after the incident, Martin commented on a social media post from the department saying it looked like him and he wanted to clear himself, according to Sgt. Chad Fountain.

    Detectives interviewed Martin and determined he wasn't the culprit. He was never considered a suspect, Fountain said.

    But Thursday night, Martin says two men approached him outside Slick's bar in Norco's Hamner Square Shopping Center.

    "He had his phone on him and he said, 'This is you, isn't it? We don't allow your kind here,' " Martin told KTLA. "The other guy starts pushing me and says, 'You know, I got a daughter.' "

    Martin claims one of them told him, "I kill people like this," despite his insistence that it wasn't him.

    The victim says he was strangled and punched at least 20 times.

    Riverside County sheriff's officials said one person was arrested on suspicion of battery at the bar that night.

    Martin is now recovering from his injuries at home.

    Corona police, meanwhile, continue to search for the child annoyance suspect.

    Officials say the man targeted the young student as she was walking near the corner of Curry Court and Parkview Drive, not far from Corona Ranch Elementary School.

    The case is stagnant and investigators haven't received any new leads, Fountain said.

    Police describe the perpetrator as a Latino man in his 20s with a thin build, black hair and brown eyes. He may have a golden retriever and has been seen in a blue vehicle with tinted windows, possibly a Toyota Prius hatchback.

    Anyone with information can contact Detective Mark DeRuyter at 951-279-3574 or Mark.DeRuyter@CoronaCA.gov.

    Free Aubery Thomas Harrison and Bruce Tamatea!!

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/manawatu-sta...eclined-parole

    A man who took part in the vigilante killing of a convicted paedophile with his uncle and another woman has been denied an early release from prison.

    But when he is released from prison, he wants to live away from the small town he committed murder in.

    Aubrey Thomas Harrison is serving a life sentence for the murder of Glen Stinson in Foxton in July 2007.

    Harrison's 12-year minimum term ended in August, making him eligible for parole.

    Harrison, his uncle Bruce Raymond Tamatea and a woman with name suppression killed Stinson after he was found sexually abusing a 10-year-old girl at a party in Palmerston North.

    The woman attacked Stinson, a convicted paedophile awaiting trial at the time of his death for raping a young girl, before saying she was going to kill him.

    The three killers put Stinson in a car and drove him to Foxton - something the woman told her trial was a plan to scare him.

    Tamatea said they only wanted to give Stinson a beating before leaving him in the small Horowhenua town.

    Instead, Stinson was beaten to death, hit in the head with a hammer, stomped on and choked to death by Tamatea.

    His body was left outside a poultry farm.

    According to Stuff reports from the time of the murder, Stinson's family did not claim his body after his post-mortem.

    Furthermore, he only met his eldest son for the first time in Manawatū Prison; his son was also a sex offender.

    Stinson first sexually offended when 17, before racking up another 10 sex convictions and breaching his bail after being found watching pupils outside Palmerston North Boys' High School.

    Tamatea pleaded guilty to murder, and told the trial of Harrison and the woman he was the only person to inflict violence on Stinson.

    "I had the hammer, I used the hammer. It was only supposed to be a bash," he said.

    But the jury found Harrison guilty of murder - he was also involved in the assault - and the woman guilty of manslaughter.

    According to the report from Harrison's first parole hearing, provided to Stuff by the Parole Board, he was assessed as being at high risk of reoffending despite 12 years behind bars.

    He has a six-page-long criminal history for violence, drugs and disobeying court orders, and six previous prison sentences.

    His early prison behaviour was just as poor, including involvement with drugs, but had turned things around since 2016, the board said.

    He spent time in a self-care unit, had no drug issues or misconducts, and was a good worker making progress.

    He also likely had a job for the release to work scheme, the board said.

    However, he only had a broad release plan with nowhere solid to live, although he did want to live in the Wellington region, the board said.

    He had only just gone back into self-care - he was withdrawn earlier through no fault of his own, the board said - and beginning reintegration.

    While it congratulated him on his progress, the board declined his early release, wanting more solid arrangements for his release and reintegration.

    Tamatea has already been declined parole twice before, and remains in prison for Stinson's murder.

    Victory too! For Pete Campbell for defending his girlfriend!

    Pete Campbell, also known as DJ Feddy, was hired to spin reggae at Bunny’s West Indian restaurant in Miami Gardens.

    John King, 42, was known around the neighborhood as a violent bully who’d been acquitted of a murder years back. He was also accused of raping Campbell’s girlfriend.

    Their paths intersected on July 3, 2015, when King and friends accosted Campbell at Bunny’s. In a small hallway, Campbell — who said he was unarmed — wrestled a gun away from one of King’s friends and fired.

    King, who Campbell said had a gun in his pocket, was shot and killed. Because he fled the scene, Miami Gardens police arrested Campbell, who spent several years in jail awaiting trial.

    But a Miami-Dade judge has now thrown out the murder charge against Campbell, ruling he acted in self-defense.

    “He knew King’s reputation in the community for violence,” Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Teresa Mary Pooler wrote in her order filed earlier this month. “He also believed that King was out to get him. .... Based on all that ensued prior, his fear was reasonable that King came to Bunny’s with the intent to kill or do great bodily harm.”

    The judge cleared Campbell, 30, under Florida’s controversial Stand Your Ground law, which eliminated a citizen’s duty to retreat before using deadly force. Critics have long complained that the law, backed by the politically powerful National Rifle Association, encourages vigilante justice and gives criminals an easy way to beat accusations of violence.

    Under the Stand Your Ground law, judges have wide legal leeway to grant “immunity” to someone they deem was acting in self-defense.

    “This was the most transparent self-defense case of justifiable use of deadly force I’ve seen,” said defense lawyer Jonathan Jordan, who defended Campbell along with Andrew Rier.

    “Credit to Judge Pooler who followed the law the Legislature has set out. The ‘victim’ sought out Pete at his place of employment; Pete never asked for this but he was put into a situation where he had no choice but to defend himself or become a victim himself.”

    At a Stand Your Ground hearing, defense lawyers said King had raped Campbell’s girlfriend at gunpoint about six months before the shooting. “She reported the case to the police but nothing was done about it,” the judge wrote in her order.

    Campbell had been pressing police to arrest King. “For several months, he and his girlfriend tried to find out King’s name, since they only knew him by sight, and where he lived,” the judge wrote. “At one point, they even spoke to one of King’s girlfriends.

    “Every time they saw King, they would call the police but nothing was done.”

    Word got back to King, who “was going after Campbell,” a police detective testified.

    King found Campbell at Bunny’s. (That night, King was driving his girlfriend’s car — she kept a handgun in the glove compartment, and it later vanished.)

    Campbell testified that during his DJ set, he’d gone out for a smoke break and was walking back through a small hallway when King and his friends grabbed him. “During the tussle and the back and forth, Campbell was able to grab the gun from the accomplice and shoot King with it,” the judge wrote in her order.

    After the shooting, Campbell threw the gun down and fled. But police could not find him because he drove to Georgia, where his pregnant girlfriend was staying. Campbell testified that he took a bus up there to be with her, and had no idea if King had survived the shooting.

    “Mr. Campbell testified and his testimony was very compelling and credible,” Pooler wrote.

    Hope for the best in this case.

    Indian police have shot dead four men suspected of raping and killing a young female vet in Hyderabad last week.

    The men were in police detention and were taken back to the scene of the crime in the early hours of Friday.

    The suspects were shot when they tried to steal the officers' guns and escape, police told BBC Telugu.

    However, human rights organisations including Amnesty International have called for investigations to determine if these were extrajudicial killings.

    "Extrajudicial killings are not a solution to preventing rape," said Avinash Kumar, executive director of Amnesty International India.

    The 27-year-old rape victim's charred remains were discovered last Thursday - leading to outrage and protests over alleged police inaction.

    After news of the killings broke, the victim's mother told the BBC, "justice has been done", while neighbours celebrated with firecrackers, and thousands of people took to the streets to hail the police.

    Why Indians are celebrating the killings in Hyderabad
    How do the police explain the shooting?
    Ten armed policemen took the four suspects - who were not handcuffed - to the scene of the crime to reconstruct the incident early on Friday, said VC Sajjanar, police commissioner of the Hyderabad suburb of Cyberabad.

    The toll plaza where the rape and murder took place is close to the suburb, which houses a number of global tech companies like Microsoft and Google.

    The police were looking for the victim's phone, power bank and watch which were reported missing, the police commissioner said.

    "The four men got together and started to attack the officers with stones and sticks and also snatched away weapons from two officers and started firing," the commissioner said, in response to questions about why the men had been killed.

    Thousands protested outside a police station in Hyderabad after the rape case
    "Although the officers maintained restraint and asked them to surrender, they continued to fire and attack us. This went on for 15 minutes. We retaliated and four accused got killed."

    Two officers suffered head injuries but these were not caused by bullets, he added. The two police officers were admitted to hospital, he said

    "Let me tell you this. The law has taken its own course," he added.

    The police were heavily criticised after the rape and murder of the vet - particularly when the victim's family accused them of inaction for two hours.

    A region familiar with 'encounters'
    Analysis by G S Ram Mohan, BBC Telugu editor

    Police "encounter killings" - the term for an extrajudicial killing dressed up as an unavoidable police action - are nothing new in this part of the country.

    A long-running Maoist insurgency in the 1980s and 1990s saw many those suspected of involvement with the group being killed in a similar manner.

    VC Sajjanar, the commissioner of the police division that killed the four suspects on Friday, had in fact been involved in an encounter before - an incident which played out in a strikingly similar manner.

    He was superintendent of police when three people accused of carrying out an acid attack on a woman were killed at the scene of the crime by police. They were also taken there to "recreate" the crime and were reportedly shot while trying to escape.

    Supt Sajjanar received great adulation then and become a hero.

    How have the victim's family reacted?
    BBC Telugu's Deepthi Bathini visited the family in their home, where neighbours could be seen celebrating the news by setting off firecrackers and distributing sweets.

    "I can't put it into words. I felt happiness but also grief because my daughter will never come home," the victim's mother said.

    "My daughter's soul is at peace now. Justice has been done. I never thought we would get justice. No other girl should experience what my daughter did."


    Media captionThe victim's sister - who cannot be identified for legal reasons - spoke out after her sibling's death
    The mother added that she wanted the law on sexual assault and rape to be stricter.

    "Men should be scared to even stare at women - because they will be punished," she said.

    What about the wider reaction?
    News of the police action has been widely celebrated on social media.

    Many took to Twitter and Facebook to applaud the police, saying they had "delivered justice".

    The mother of a student who died after being gang-raped on a bus in capital Delhi in 2012 also hailed the killing.

    "I am extremely happy with this punishment. Police have done a great job," she told ANI news agency.

    BBC Telugu reporter Satish Balla, reporting from the scene of the killings, said approximately 2,000 people had gathered, causing a huge traffic jam. Police were showered with rose petals.

    Could the police have acted differently?
    A few have questioned the police's version of events.

    Image caption
    Thousands of people gathered at the site of the encounter
    Prakash Singh, a retired police officer and a key architect of police reforms, told the BBC the killings were "entirely avoidable".

    "Abundant caution should be taken when people in custody are being taken to the court or the scene of the crime," he said.

    "They should be secured, handcuffed and properly searched before they are taken out. All kinds of things can happen if the police are not careful."

    But Mr Singh said it was too early to say if the incident was an extrajudicial killing - known popularly in India as an "encounter killing".

    In the days after the rape and murder, thousands of people had protested at Hyderabad police station, insisting the killers faced the death penalty.

    Jaya Bachchan, a former Bollywood star who is now an MP in India's upper house of parliament, said earlier this week that the accused men should be "lynched".

    People in Delhi held a vigil on Saturday
    Several other MPs from across the political spectrum also condemned the brutal gang-rape and murder.

    Elsewhere in the country, there were other protests and vigils for the victim, who cannot be named under Indian law.

    How did the vet's murder happen?
    The victim left home on her motorbike at about 18:00 local time (12:30 GMT) 10 days ago to go to a doctor's appointment.

    She called family later to say she had a flat tyre, and a lorry driver had offered to help. She said she was waiting near a toll plaza.

    Efforts to contact her afterwards were unsuccessful, and her body was discovered under a flyover last Thursday.

    Last week, three police officers were suspended when the victim's family accused them of not acting quickly enough when the woman was reported missing.

    Officers had suggested she may have eloped, relatives told the National Commission for Women, a government body.

    Are women any safer in India today?
    Rape and sexual violence against women have been in focus in India since the December 2012 gang-rape and murder of a young woman on a bus in the capital, Delhi.

    But there has been no sign that crimes against women are abating.

    According to government figures, police registered 33,658 cases of rape in India in 2017, an average of 92 rapes every day.

    James Fairbanks accused of Killing a rapist in Nebraska and people are calling for his pardon.

    OMAHA, Neb. ?
    James Fairbanks was charged Thursday with first-degree murder and use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony.

    Prosecutors believe 43-year-old James Fairbanks killed Mattieo Condoluci, a convicted sex offender.

    "The State of Nebraska hereby complains to the court that James Fairbanks is alleged to have violated the following laws of the State of Nebraska:...On or about 14 May 2020, in Douglas County, Nebraska, James Fairbanks did then and there purposely and with deliberate and premeditated malice kill Mattieo Condoluci," a complaint read.

    Condoluci's death comes as no surprise to his own daughter, Amanda Henry.

    "He's hurt so many people, and it's a matter of time before somebody did it," she said.

    Investigators believe Fairbanks sent a confession email to KETV Newswatch 7.

    The email, sent to KETV NewsWatch 7, from sender "Stop Predators," said "I killed Matteio Condoluci Thursday May 14th."

    The anonymous sender said he or she had been looking for an apartment in the area when he discovered Condoluci on the Nebraska Sex Offender Registry. The sender described Condoluci as standing in his driveway pretending to wash his truck while staring at a group of children playing in the street.

    "Having had my own experience with these type of predators I knw (sic) the damage he would do to those kids," wrote the emailer.

    "I've worked with kids for years who have been victimized and I couldnt (sic) in good conscience allow him to do it to anyone else while I had the means to stop him".

    The emailer also wrote "I know in this messed up judicial system that means I will face far more severe punishment for stopping him then (sic) he did for raping KIDS."

    Condoluci was convicted in Sarpy County 13 years ago of sexual assault of a child.

    "I've been through so much hurt and pain. There are many times I wanted to do it myself but I didn't want to give up my freedom, my family," Henry said.

    Fairbanks' defense requested a $500,000 bond, arguing he is not a threat and doesn't have a criminal record. However, a judge determined no bond would be set. Still, Steve Lefler said his client is still "surprisingly upbeat."

    "Normally people, our citizens hate people who have been accused of first-degree murder. This is what makes this a kind of unusual case," said Fairbanks' attorney.

    Lefler said inmates are giving Fairbanks standing ovations, supporters are sending him money to his jail account and signing petitions to free him, including Condoluci's daughter.

    "He has tapped into the vein of righteousness that the city of Omaha has," Lefler said.

    Chief Deputy Douglas County attorney Brenda Beadle insists pre-meditated murder will not go unpunished.

    "I've said it before and I'll say it again. It's never a good idea to take justice into your own hands. Vigilante justice isn't the answer," Beadle said.

    Fairbanks is a paraprofessional with Omaha Public Schools's alternative middle school program. The district said he's on leave.

    OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) ? The mother of one of Mattieo Condoluci?s victims says she was elated to hear that he was dead, but didn?t want someone to see her Facebook page and go out and murder him.

    James Fairbanks, 43, is charged with first degree murder and is being held without bond at the Douglas County Jail. He?s accused of killing Sex Offender Mattieo Condoluci, 64, in his home on May 14.

    Prosecutors say Fairbanks sent an email to KMTV and other media outlets confessing to killing Condoluci because he knew his background and had to stop him from doing it again. The email also mentioned he saw a ?Mattieo Condoluci Predator? Facebook group set up by Laura Smith, the mother of one of his victim?s. Smith son was sexually assaulted as a child by Condoluci in Florida in 1993.

    3 News Now Digital ? The Mother Of One of Condoluci's Victims Shares Her Thoughts On Fairbanks
    ?I struggled so many years everyday almost three decades. There wasn?t a day that went by that I didn?t think about what he was possibly doing, not possibly doing, I knew in my heart he would be doing to other children whose lives he?d be destroying,? Smith explained.

    Condoluci was also convicted of sexually assaulting a child in Sarpy County in 2006. He served less than 2 years of a 5 year prison sentence.

    The email describes a man who had worked with abused children for years, and had seen how much they can be traumatized.

    Smith has changed the name of the Facebook group to ?Free James Fairbanks.? She?s supporting him in his efforts forward and think he needs mental help right now.

    ?So for me my thing would?ve been he should not be in jail, at least not right then, he should?ve been brought to a hospital because now I feel like he?s sitting in jail and if it is PTSD we could lose another life over this and I hate to see that happen,? Smith explained.

    Fairbank's Attorney Steve Lefler says in general he does feel better having a client mentally evaluated. He adds that $1,200 has been added to Fairbanks? jail account by people that he doesn?t know who support him.
    Yes this will end in Blame the hero.

    GOSHEN - An Orange County Court judge acquitted a Sparrowbush man of all charges on Thursday in the 2013 shooting death of a wanted man from Rockland County.

    David Carlson, 48, faced charges of first- and second-degree manslaughter, as well as a lesser-included charge of criminally negligent homicide in the death of Norris Acosta-Sanchez, 35, of Ramapo.

    Over the past six and a half years, Carlson has been through two murder indictments, a jury trial and conviction on manslaughter charges that was later overturned on appeal, and the just-completed non-jury trial.

    Carlson and his lawyers, Benjamin Ostrer of Chester and Michael Mazzariello of Newburgh, appeared tense Thursday morning as Judge Robert Freehill started the proceeding, summarizing the case history and charges.

    Then Freehill announced the verdict: “I find the defendant not guilty of all charges.”

    Carlson slumped against Mazzariello in relief, and they hugged. Mazzariello fought off tears as he embraced his client.

    From the gallery, where several of Carlson’s relatives and friends watched, someone started to clap. They stopped when Ostrer looked back with a quick shake of his head.

    Westchester County Deputy District Attorney Timothy Ward, who handled the case as special prosecutor, declined to comment after the verdict.

    Thursday afternoon, the Westchester District Attorney’s Office released a brief statement: “While we are disappointed with the outcome, we respect the Judge’s decision in the case.”

    Carlson, still shaking in the hallway a few minutes after his acquittal, said he feels almost as if the verdict didn’t really happen — that he was dreaming.

    The events of that day and Acosta-Sanchez’s death have left deep marks on Carlson.

    “I still have nightmares about him, even now," he said. “It’s a tragedy, what happened. It’s something I'll never get over.”

    Mazzariello and Ostrer, who represented Carlson pro bono, said the ultimate resolution of the case was an example of New York’s criminal justice system working properly.

    Carlson has remained free from the case’s early days, thanks to support from his community and family, who helped post bond, and because Freehilll was willing to allow him to remain free on bond during the appeal.

    Still, Mazzariello said, Carlson lost everything: His home, which is in foreclosure, and family.

    “There’s no winners here. It was a tragic loss of life,” Ostrer said.

    As for now, Carlson said, “I’m just going to go back to work.”

    Acosta-Sanchez, 35, was wanted in Rockland County on charges including second-degree rape, and was staying on a property owned by a New York City philosophical society that neighbored Carlson’s place in a rural section of the Town of Deerpark hamlet of Sparrowbush.




    Carlson struck up a friendly acquaintance with Acosta-Sanchez, giving him food in exchange for helping with work on Carlson’s farm.

    After Acosta-Sanchez confessed that he was wanted for rape, Carlson went to town police.

    They enlisted his help to get Acosta-Sanchez into custody to verify his identity, but Acosta-Sanchez escaped. The next day, he eluded a multi-agency police search involving a tactical team, dogs and helicopters.

    Then, the morning of Oct. 11, 2013, Carlson told police at the time, Acosta-Sanchez showed up at his door, angry and agitated.

    According to trial testimony, Carlson sent him to the back door and grabbed a shotgun loaded with birdshot on the way to meet him there. He pointed the gun and Acosta-Sanchez told him this was over, and marched him at gunpoint toward neighbors’ homes so someone could call 911.

    Carlson twice fired warning shots into the ground when Acosta-Sanchez balked and begged to be let go.

    They were in front of a neighbor’s house when, Carlson said, Acosta-Sanchez lunged at him and Carlson pulled the trigger. He fired again as Acosta-Sanchez seemed to swing his arm and advance at him.

    The first shot struck Acosta-Sanchez’s upper arm, nearly severing it.

    The second shot struck him in the head, killing him.

    Carlson set down the rifle and waited for police. Ostrer and Mazzariello argued that Carson acted in self-defense.

    State police charged Carlson with second-degree murder and manslaughter. The initial indictment on those charges was tossed in 2014 after Freehill ruled that prosecutors had made serious errors that created bias. A new indictment carried the same charges.


    In 2016, a jury had convicted Carlson of first-degree manslaughter, and Freehill had sentenced him to the statutory minimum of five years in prison. However, Freehill allowed Carlson to remain free on bond during an appeal.

    Carlson prevailed on the appeal in 2018, when the Appellate Division found that the prosecutors' inaccurate use of the phrase "statutory rape" during jury selection as a description of the charges pending against Acosta-Sanchez was prejudicial to Carlson.

    Carlson and his lawyers opted for a bench trial the second time around, to have Freehill decide the case on the law. That trial began in July, continued off and on through this week, and ended with Thursday’s 11 a.m. verdict.

    Acosta-Sanchez’s family, who attended the first trial, said at the time that the Spain native was an educated man from an educated family who had traveled the world looking for his place in it. He had a bachelor’s degree in political science and was working to become a naturalized U.S. citizen before the criminal charges were filed against him.

    There is a manifesto by James Fairbanks confessing to the killing of the accused predator.

    Here is a Motive according to the ex-wife of James Fairbanks. It was to protect children as one of the motives and he was a Councillor prior to the killings.

    OMAHA, Neb. (FOX 42 KPTM) — Police have arrested a man accused of killing a registered sex offender. Tuesday police arrested 43-year-old James Fairbanks for criminal homicide. Fairbanks is charged with fatally shooting 64-year-old Mattieo Condoluci inside his home last weekend.

    Fairbanks’ ex-wife Kelly Tamayo said Fairbanks first learned Condoluci was a sex offender while he was searching for a home in the neighborhood. Tamayo said Fairbanks likely felt an obligation to act after spending years working with abused children.

    “He was dedicated to helping kids who are vulnerable and had special needs, he worked with them for his whole career in schools, in correctional facilities, in group homes,” Tamayo said.

    Tamayo said Fairbanks contacted her Monday, confessing to the shooting.

    “Jim contacted me yesterday afternoon to tell me he had killed a child molester. He said he was in preparation of turning himself in and he had sent an email already to the police department,” Tamayo said. “He was ready to take full responsibility for it, he knew what the consequences were.”

    According to court records Fairbanks has no history of violent crimes, however Tamayo filed protection orders against Fairbanks in 2018 while the couple was going through a divorce.

    Fox 42 spoke with Condoluci's landlord who did not want to be identified. The Landlord said Condoluci had lived in the home for nearly a decade and predominantly kept to himself.

    Tamayo said Fairbanks was also concerned that Condoluci had a swing set and wooden playhouse in his backyard. The landlord said the backyard swing set was installed by Condoluci about a year ago when his brother and young nephew came to visit him from out of state.

    “He [Fairbanks] knew that that man was living there. Then just by driving by he had observed, apparently, this guy looking at children again or acting suspicious,”Tamayo said.

    According to the Nebraska Sex Offenders Registry, in 1994, Condoluci was arrested in Florida for attempting to sexually touch a child under 16. He was also arrested in Nebraska for sexaully assaulting a child in 2007.

    Records show Condoluci’s last compliance check with the Douglas County Sheriff's Department was on March 2,2020.

    Tamayo said she hopes people will understand why her ex-husband reacted this way.

    “I just pray for understanding and leniency when it comes to his consequences, because he is a good man and he was acting out of the goodness of his heart to protect people,” Tamayo said.

    Officials from Omaha Public Schools say Fairbanks worked in a middle school alternative program at the time of the incident, but has since been placed on administrative leave.

    Fairbanks is being held inside Douglas County Corrections for criminal homicide.

    Inmates in a medical unit at the Douglas County Jail greeted an Omaha man charged with killing a convicted sex offender with a standing ovation, the man’s attorney said Thursday.

    James Fairbanks, who was arrested Tuesday, also has had more than $1,200 placed into his commissary account, attorney Steve Lefler said — apparently from donors who cheer Fairbanks as a hero online.

    But Chief Deputy Douglas County Attorney Brenda Beadle said Thursday that Fairbanks shouldn’t have taken the law into his own hands, which is why he was arrested.

    “I don’t classify somebody who would kill somebody in cold blood a hero,” she said. “He doesn’t get to be the judge and jury. That’s why we have a system in place.”

    In court Thursday afternoon, Fairbanks, 43, was ordered held without bail on charges of first- degree murder and use of a firearm to commit a felony. Authorities say he fatally shot 64-year-old Mattieo Condoluci on May 14 at Condoluci’s home at 4305 Pinkney St. Officials said Fairbanks later wrote an email to local news outlets taking responsibility for the slaying.

    The email writer said he was apartment hunting in the neighborhood where Condoluci lived and learned of him while investigating the neighborhood. The author said he works with children and was agonized thinking of the damage that child predators do.

    “(I) couldnt (sic) in good conscience allow him to do it to anyone else while I had the means to stop him,” the email said.

    Lefler said he hasn’t asked Fairbanks if he wrote the letter. But Fairbanks, who is on leave from his job at the Omaha Public Schools, wants a jury to hear his rationale, Lefler said.

    In arguing to Douglas County Judge Thomas Harmon that Fairbanks deserves a $500,000 bail, Lefler said Condoluci’s daughter Amanda Henry was pleased to hear of her father’s death.

    “She is relieved because there has been a potential predator that has been eliminated from our community,” he said. Fairbanks, he said, “is not a threat to the citizens of our community who respect the rights of our children.”

    When a reporter asked Lefler to explain that statement outside of court, he said it was “pretty obvious” and declined to say anything further.

    Beadle interpreted Lefler’s statement to mean that he acknowledges that his client is a threat to some people.

    “We charge people with child abuse on a regular basis, and it doesn’t mean that we want the citizens of our community to go kill all those people,” she said. “Obviously (Fairbanks) is a danger, and he is a threat.”

    Henry attended the hearing and plans to continue to support Fairbanks, although she said she’s unable to help him financially. She is a part of a Facebook group called “Free James Fairbanks,” started by the mother of a Florida boy Condoluci was convicted of molesting in 1994. Condoluci was also convicted in 2007 of child sexual assault in Sarpy County.

    Henry supports an online petition asking President Donald Trump to pardon Fairbanks, which has more than 12,000 signatures.

    She said it’s hard to consider her father a victim.

    “He’s hurt so many people,” she said. “It was a matter of time before somebody did it.”
    Hope James Fairbanks gets help but then again he has to live with the fact that a dead rapist is going to shame him in court though.

    On the evening of May 14, 2020, in Omaha, Nebraska, James Fairbanks went to the home of Mattieo Condoluci and shot him dead. Condoluci, 64, was a twice convicted pedophile, and Fairbanks, 43, had spent years working with troubled kids in the Omaha Public School system.

    After the body was discovered, the dead man's daughter, Amanda Henry, was quoted saying, "Murdering my dad was a horrible thing, but children are much safer now."

    Fairbanks is now charged with first-degree murder.

    During an emotional phone call with Henry, she told me of her father's death: "I was relieved. It finally happened. It's over. It has been hell."

    And then Henry told me what life had been like with Mattieo Condoluci.

    "I was beaten and raped by my own father for years," she said. "The man who was supposed to protect me instead belittled, humiliated and tortured me until I finally escaped at age 19." This, she told me, is why she is now supporting the man who killed her father.

    "James Fairbanks answered a 27-year-long prayer for me," Henry said. "He was there when the police weren't there. He did something when the police didn't."


    Henry described how her mother had fought valiantly to maintain custody of her 2-year-old daughter but lost touch when Condoluci took off with the toddler.

    While Henry has tried to block out much of her early nomadic years with Dad — they moved to several different cities in California, Florida, New Mexico, Iowa and Nebraska — she remembers her father routinely preyed on single mothers with young children. "He would find a lost soul, bring her home and then do his devil's work," she said.

    In 1994, Condoluci pleaded no contest in Florida to molesting the 5-year-old son of a woman he was dating. His sentence? Four years' probation. In 2006, by then relocated to Nebraska, Condoluci was sentenced to five years in prison for sexually assaulting the 12-year-old daughter of another woman in his life. He served less than two years.

    Around the same time, Henry says she was befriended by a licensed counselor and foster mother who encouraged her to report her father to the Omaha Police Department. Henry says the Omaha Police Department told her she had waited too long; the statute of limitations had run out.

    Today, others, most notably, two of Henry's female cousins, have posted on a "Free James Fairbanks" Facebook page that they were sexually abused by "Uncle Matt," and they are supporting his killer. One told me: "I was raped till I was 13 years old. It started when I was 7."

    In a confession Fairbanks distributed to the local media before his arrest, he explained that while looking for a new apartment, he had checked the sex registry for a particular neighborhood and found Condoluci's name. Fairbanks admitted he had watched the convict pretending to wash his car while ogling a group of children playing in the street.

    "I felt sick to my stomach," Fairbanks wrote. "I researched him more and more and found he had victimized dozens of kids in different states. ... (He) had a playground set in his backyard." Because of his work with victimized kids, Fairbanks said, "I couldn't in good conscience allow him to do it to anyone else while I had the means to stop him."

    Total strangers are sending money to Fairbank's jailhouse account; thousands have signed petitions calling for Fairbanks to be pardoned — unlikely at this point since he hasn't been convicted of anything. Many are saying simply that Fairbanks should not spend another night in lockup, that he did the community a favor.

    This case challenges society's ethics and our own morals. It underscores the failure of the statute of limitations laws because as any victim of childhood sex abuse will tell you, they get no reprieve from a lifetime of trauma. The case also highlights those disappointing sex registries that are clogged with the names of teenage Romeos and public urinators but fail to focus strict surveillance on career pedophiles and rapists.

    The case leaves us with the unsettling idea that sometimes — when those in authority fail to protect — murder could be seen as a public service.

    In that instance, should the murderer get a pass?

    If you are wondering why James Fairbanks is trending and people are calling for his pardon is because he saved a daughter of a rapist from further damage. But then again the sad part here is that Fairbanks will end up treated worse by the courts though.

    Yes this will end in Blame the hero.

    Who is the hero? The man who took the law into his own hands?! He's a cold blooded killer! His actions are the very definition of First Degree Murder. Throw the book at him, don't need maniacs like that walking the streets.
    You are talking to a woman who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe.

    I've told you a hundred times, we don't need these vigilante lunatics. Let the courts do their jobs. You might not like everything they do, but this is what we must let happen in a civilized society. This guy deserves to be locked up. He didn't have the right to go murder this guy.

    I don't own these opinions here and I am not the previous person who started this thread. I just moved in and rented a room and I had no idea the previous owner who lived in this building had these beliefs.

    I call for this person to remain in a mental institution permanently due to the fact that this person dealt with so much damage.

    What person should remain in a mental institution? Are you talking about Fairbanks? He wasn't damaged - the guy he murdered did nothing to him. Fairbanks is not a victim.

    True I am referring to Fairbanks. But the way the petitions for Fairbanks are being framed like he's a civil rights icon when in reality its a case of "Medicine worse than disease"

    The Defense is coming up with a motive on why Fairbanks did it. Sure if anybody even believes this story " Fairbanks first encountered Condoluci he didn’t intend to kill him"

    OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) -- — The attorney for James Fairbanks says there’s a lot more to him allegedly murdering a twice convicted sex offender.

    Fairbanks, 43, is being held without bond at the Douglas County Jail on 1st Degree Murder in the death of Mattieo Condoluci. He was found dead inside his home on May 16.

    His attorney, Steve Lefler, says he can’t give specifics, but say when Fairbanks first encountered Condoluci he didn’t intend to kill him.

    In an email to media, Fairbanks allegedly confessed saying he saw Condoluci staring at kids in his neighborhood and couldn’t let him offend again.

    “We have a pretty good defense to this particular charge, not just the Mr. Condoluci was a bad guy so he should die. That isn’t going to be our defense,” Lefler explained.

    Judge Russell Bowie denied a change on bond request by Lefler so Fairbanks is still being held without bond at the Douglas County Jail.

    The Defense also has another thing to stir up the jury pool to get Fairbanks out of prison

    OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The question remains; how dangerous was Mattieo Condoluci to others when he was killed this month?

    On May 14, prosecutors say James Fairbanks, 43, killed Condoluci in his home near 43rd and Pinkney St.

    Fairbanks allegedly sent an email to media outlets and told police he did it because he knew he was a sex offender and didn’t want him to hurt any other children.

    Condoluci, 64, served 1 1/2 years of a 5 year prison sentence for sexually assaulting a child in Sarpy County in 2006, and got probation in Florida for similar crimes against a child in 1993.

    A 2009 appeal to the Sarpy County Mental Health Board indicates that a state psychologist concluded Condoluci was “a dangerous sex offender unable to control his criminal behavior” during a 2008 evaluation.

    The mother of Condoluci’s first child victim, Laura Smith, says Fairbanks should be freed.


    “This is a man (Fairbanks) who has 2 children who’s a good dad. He belongs home with his children, and that to me right now is the devastating part of all of this,” Smith explained.

    Omaha Police say a sexual assault allegation was reported against Condoluci in November of 2019. There were no others prior to that in Omaha dating back to 2006.

    Fairbanks is still being held without bond at the Douglas County Jail for 1st Degree Murder.

    Fairbanks was one of these fucks that got obsessed with something, and wanted to murder someone and use this as an excuse. He's where he belongs.
