Ex-South Plainfield Police Captain Sentenced For Sexually Exploiting Girl

Originally posted on CBS New York:

NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – A former northern New Jersey police captain is going to prison for 20 years for sexually exploiting a girl by enticing her to live-stream explicit acts online in exchange for payment.

A federal judge in Newark on Friday also ordered 52-year-old Michael Grennier to serve a lifetime of supervised release.

The former South Plainfield police captain pleaded guilty to a complaint charging him with production of child pornography.

Grennier was arrested in 2013, just days after prosecutors said he enticed the girl to perform sexually explicit acts and stream the images online while he watched remotely from his home computer. During the Valentine’s Day webcam session, Grennier directed the girl’s actions via text messages.

Prosecutors said Grennier promised to buy his victim clothing in exchange for her performance.

SOUTH BRUNSWICK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – Police in South Brunswick, New Jersey are searching for a man caught on surveillance video who made off with several hundred dollars from a mosque’s donation box Tuesday night.

“He’s in the hallway, it’s in a slot in the wall and what the actor had done is cut through the sheetrock,” Lt. James Ryan told WCBS 880′s Levon Putney.

NJ assemblyman calls for increased police access of surveillance cameras

NEW JERSEY (PIX11) - Whether they’re on public property, your home, or a local business surveillance cameras have become a big crime-fighting tool for cops.  Now one New Jersey law maker is trying to make it easier for police to access your video by creating a security camera database for local municipalities.

After speaking with the Essex County Prosecutors office, New Jersey Assemblyman Ralph Caputo introduced a bill that would give local leaders the right to create a security camera database.

Each owner would register their address, location of the cameras, and an emergency contact number with the police.

Right now cops have to canvass neighborhoods following a crime to find out what locations have security cameras.  Caputo says creating a database of surveillance cameras would cut out that step making it easier to find the video.

“And time is of the essence in terms of identifying potential criminals,” sand Caputo.

Sunnyvale’s Ban On Large Ammunition Magazines Goes Before 9th U.S. Circuit Court Of Appeals

Originally posted on CBS San Francisco:

SUNNYVALE (KCBS)— A group of Sunnyvale gun owners – backed by the National Rifle Association – are set to urge the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to invalidate the city’s new law— Measure C, which was overwhelmingly passed by voters last year.

The law bans anyone from owning a magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. Tony Schoemberg is an attorney representing the city of Sunnyvale.

“Their claim is that the law violates the right to bear arms under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Our position is that it doesn’t,” he said. Schoemberg argued that rulings on similar laws around the country are coming in, upholding the gun restriction laws and finding them to be constitutional.

The decision by the appeal’s court could have wide ranging implications. Since the law was passed, several other California cities including Mountain View, San Francisco and Los…

New Jersey Lawmakers Mull Private Surveillance Camera Registration Requirement

Originally posted on CBS New York:

NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Video surveillance cameras are almost everywhere you look these days, and more and more people are installing them as security measures at their businesses and homes.

But as CBS2’s Alice Gainer reported Monday, a proposed bill in New Jersey could require residents to register their private surveillance cameras with local police.

Most store owners said they like the idea, but many homeowners expressed worry that the move would amount to an invasion of privacy.

Law enforcement and sponsors of the bill said the measure has nothing to do with privacy and is all about saving lives. They pointed to the recent use of surveillance video that helped to locate a Philadelphia woman who had been kidnapped.

Carlesha Freeland-Gaither, 22, was abducted on the street in Philadelphia earlier this month, and was later found alive in Maryland. Her alleged abductor – Delvin Barnes, 37 – was arrested…

Republican Leadership Prepared to Relinquish all (Gun) Policy Decisions to Democrats…

First, the good news.  Last week, you contacted your congressional representatives and demanded a “short term” Continuing Resolution.  They heard you, and every conservative in Washington is echoing this theme.

Now for the bad news.  Even though Republicans just won control of Congress, what’s the first “bright idea” the Republican leadership comes up with after their wave election?


Thankfully, the overwhelming percentage of conservative Republicans in Washington are opposed to this.  And that’s why we need to keep lighting the fire under them, so they will continue to keep pressing their leadership to stand up to Harry Reid and Barack Obama.

Here is what’s at stake: Virtually all spending and policy decisions are made on the…
