Moishe Markoff the Craig's List killer - he committed suicide

Investigators searching the apartment of Philip Markoff, the accused murderer now known as the "Craigslist Killer," found a handgun and panties belonging to the two victims hidden in a hollowed-out copy of the textbook Gray's Anatomy of the Human Body, two law enforcement sources told ABC News.

Markoff appeared to be collecting women's panties, which investigators believe were "souvenirs" from his alleged victims, two law enforcement sources said.

Police have asked anyone who may have been contacted by Markoff via Craigslist to come forward, and law enforcement sources told ABC News that detectives investigating the case are now fielding calls from other potential victims.

"There could be none, there could be others," Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley told "Good Morning America." "We're not interested in prosecuting them for massage services."

January 12, 2013 1:11 PM PARIS (AP) — The French president says the country will raise its domestic terror threat level after military action in Mali and Somalia, promising to increase protection at public buildings and transportation networks.
President Francois Hollande said Saturday he had ordered increased security after the French military operations in the two African countries against Islamist forces.

France has some of the world's most recognizable monuments and a wide-ranging national transportation network; like the U.S., it also has an organized government response if there are specific fears of a terrorist attack.
French aircraft and troops are backing soldiers in Mali who are trying to push back Islamist offensives; in Somalia, French commandos launched a failed raid to rescue an intelligence agent held hostage there for three years.

She denies her Jewish blood

Just another Hispanic from New York

By Caroline Bankoff

To celebrate the publication of her new memoir, My Beloved World, the New York Times sat down for a fun chat with Bronxite and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who confirmed some things everybody already knew. First of all, the take-out situation in D.C. is terrible. "I go to New York, I order food, it’s at my door in 10 to 15 minutes. O.K.?" she said. But in our nation's capital "there isn’t a place I call where it doesn’t take 45 minutes." And the wait is even longer when you're a member of the judicial branch: "They’ve got to stop at security, security has to call you, you’ve got to go downstairs. By the time you get downstairs you may add another 15 minutes to the 45 minutes. And the food is ice-cold."

Secondly, the SCOTUS is stocked with big, competitive personalities who rely on self-referential humor to just barely cloak their aggressive feelings toward one another — just like in New York! Here's Sotomayor's recollection of a conversation with ideological opposite and Queens native Antonin Scalia during the pair's getting-to-know-you phase:
"One day Nino looked at me and said: 'You’re a real New Yorker. I love you. You take as well you give.' And I understood. You know, we’re just out there and up front and fun."

Justices Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg were also born and raised in the city (in Manhattan and Brooklyn, respectively.) "I dare say Elena has a little bit of that" aforementioned up-frontness, Sotomayor added. Ginsburg is "more reserved," because she is the toughest one of all and knows that it's occasionally more effective to keep quiet while everyone else loudmouths themselves into a hole. The interview didn't include Sotomayor's take on any of the Court's five non-New Yorkers, because those people don't really matter.

General / Izzie Hagel to Meet Moishe Schumer to Discuss Policy Issues
« on: January 13, 2013, 06:19:55 PM »
Jewish groups think Hagel maybe as anti Israel as Obama

That's odd considering Obama is a Jewgro

WASHINGTON — In what could be a crucial moment in the Obama administration’s efforts to advance the nomination of former Senator Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense, he will meet this week with Senator Charles E. Schumer, the most influential Jewish member of the Senate, who is expected to press Mr. Hagel on issues concerning Iran and Israel.

Times Topics: Chuck Hagel | Charles E. Schumer
Veterans and Senate Buddies, Until Another War Split Them (January 12, 2013) Mr. Schumer, Democrat of New York, will be among the first senators to meet with Mr. Hagel since his nomination last week. Mr. Schumer has told aides and other senators that he could be persuaded to support Mr. Hagel depending on the meeting’s outcome. Mr. Hagel’s nomination has been met with suspicion, and even outright hostility, among Republicans and Democrats who are strongly aligned with Jewish groups.

Mr. Schumer plans to ask Mr. Hagel to clarify and in some ways recant statements about Iran and Israel, according to a person with knowledge of the senator’s plans for the meeting. Mr. Schumer also intends to press Mr. Hagel about conservative views he has expressed on gay rights and abortion. Other Democrats are likely to take their cues about the nomination from Mr. Schumer, who is the No. 3 Democrat in the Senate and has strong ties to pro-Israel groups.

Of deepest concern to Mr. Schumer, reflecting the anxiety of many Israel advocacy groups, are Mr. Hagel’s positions on the nuclear threat posed by Iran, according to the person with knowledge of the senator’s plans. Mr. Hagel has said a military strike against Iran would be counterproductive.

But Mr. Hagel got a resounding vote of support on Sunday from a fellow Republican moderate, Colin L. Powell, the former secretary of state, who said on the NBC News program “Meet the Press” that Mr. Hagel was “superbly qualified.”

“First, I think he’s had a very, very distinguished public service record that he can stand on,” Mr. Powell said. “There are a lot of comments about different things he said over the years, and I think he’ll have a chance to respond to all those comments at the confirmation hearings.”

Another Republican, Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, said on the ABC News program “This Week” that he had questions about Mr. Hagel’s “overall temperament.”

Mr. Schumer is also suspicious of comments by Mr. Hagel that seem to support a strategy of containment, in which the United States would accept Iran’s development of a nuclear weapon while seeking to prevent a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.

Mr. Hagel might need to fully reject that strategy in order to bring his position in line with President Obama’s and Mr. Schumer’s. During his race against Mitt Romney last year, Mr. Obama took a more forceful position against Iran.

As a senator from Nebraska, Mr. Hagel voted against several rounds of sanctions against Iran that ultimately passed the Senate. Mr. Hagel has said unilateral sanctions are ineffective, a position that is out of step with the Obama administration’s thinking. But in recent weeks, Mr. Hagel has sounded more hawkish about Iran in meetings with administration officials.

Mr. Hagel’s views on the militant Islamist groups Hezbollah and Hamas have also become issues. He was among only a handful of senators who declined to sign a letter to the European Union calling for the designation of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.

Mr. Hagel has since said he does not believe in sending letters to foreign governments. He has also supported direct negotiations between the United States and Hamas, which governs Gaza.

Mr. Schumer will seek reassurances that Mr. Hagel now considers Hezbollah and Hamas to be terrorist groups, the person familiar with his plans said.

Mr. Schumer is also expected to ask Mr. Hagel about his disparaging statements about gay people — remarks he has since apologized for — and his views on abortion, particularly his opposition to allowing abortions for women in the military who have been raped, a position that has upset some Democratic women in the Senate.

Although Mr. Schumer said Mr. Obama should have discretion over appointments to his cabinet, people close to the senator said his concerns would need to be put to rest before he would support Mr. Hagel’s nomination.

Jewish groups that have met with Mr. Schumer have expressed reservations about openly opposing Mr. Hagel’s nomination for fear of inflaming their tensions with the Obama administration and deepening difficulties between the United States and Israel. Further, it would be a major break with the Obama administration for Mr. Schumer to oppose him.

On Sunday, Mr. Hagel continued to draw criticism from conservatives who share Mr. Schumer’s worries about Israel and Iran and have lingering concerns about Mr. Hagel’s criticisms of the Bush administration’s execution of the Iraq war.

Senator John McCain of Arizona said on “Face the Nation” that Mr. Hagel’s early opposition to the troop surge in Iraq was “bizarre.” Mr. McCain is the ranking Republican on the Armed Services Committee, which will conduct Mr. Hagel’s confirmation hearing.

General / Judens kill 104 Pakistanis with bomb
« on: January 10, 2013, 03:41:26 PM »
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — In one of the deadliest days in Pakistan in recent years, a series of bomb blasts rocked the southwest city of Quetta and the country’s northwest Thursday, killing at least 104 people and injuring more than 245 others.T

wo of the blasts occurred within minutes apart at a billiards hall, local authorities said. A suicide bomber walked into the building and detonated his explosives, police said, while the second blast was the result of a car bomb detonated outside as rescue teams and television crews arrived. The attack killed at least 70 people and wounded more than 160 others.

Most of the casualties were caused by the second explosion, which razed the three-story building. Among the dead was a television cameraman and several first responders. It wasn’t known whether that blast was also detonated by a suicide bomber or by remote control.

Earlier in the day, at least 12 people were killed when a roadside bomb exploded at a crowded market where several police vehicles were parked, said Quetta police chief Mir Zubair. More than 25 people were injured in that attack.

General / Stamford Hill 'child assault' arrest
« on: January 09, 2013, 04:31:46 PM »

Police are investigating an alleged indecent assault on a child by a Stamford Hill man.

The 24-year-old, believed to be a member of the strictly Orthodox community, was arrested on Sunday afternoon at Paget Road, Hackney. The man has been released on bail to return at a further date.

A police spokeswoman said they were still looking for witnesses and anyone with information, urging them to call DI Neale Baldock, from Sapphire Command, on 0207 275 3487 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 for those who wish to remain anonymous.

This undated handout photo of retired-FBI agent Robert Levinson was provided by his family.
The wife of a missing retired FBI agent is calling on the U.S. government to put more pressure on Iran to send her husband home, as she releases photos that she received two years ago of her husband as a hostage.

Robert Levinson, a private investigator, disappeared in 2007 on the Iranian island of Kish. The Iranian government has repeatedly denied knowing anything about his disappearance, and the disturbing video and photos that Levinson's family received in late 2010 and early 2011 seemed to give credence to the idea.

U.S. officials now see the government of Iran behind the images and video, intelligence officials told The Associated Press, and Levinson's wife, Christine Levinson, wants the world to know she hasn't given up hope of seeing him again.

"I believe he is still alive," she said in an interview Tuesday night with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren. "I believe he is spending every waking hour making sure that he is well enough to come home to us."

Their oldest daughter is getting married in a month, Levinson said. U.S. officials have told her they are doing everything they can, but investigators haven't been able to find much information about him.

The extraordinary photos -- showing Levinson's hair wild and gray, his beard long and unkempt -- are being seen for the first time publicly after the family provided copies first to the AP. The video has been previously released.

"I feel that there needs to be more attention to the case, and that is why I am putting the pictures out," Christine Levinson told Fox News.

In response to Iran's repeated denials, and amid secret conversations with Iran's government, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a statement in March 2011 that Levinson was being held somewhere in South Asia. The implication was that Levinson might be in the hands of terrorist group or criminal organization somewhere in Pakistan or Afghanistan.

The statement was a goodwill gesture to Iran, one that the U.S. hoped would prod Tehran to help bring him home.

But nothing happened.

Two years later, with the investigation stalled, the consensus now among some U.S. officials involved in the case is that despite years of denials, Iran's intelligence service was almost certainly behind the 54-second video and five photographs of Levinson that were emailed anonymously to his family. The tradecraft used to send those items was too good, indicating professional spies were behind them, the officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to talk publicly. While everything dealing with Iran is murky, their conclusion is based on the U.S. government's best intelligence analysis.

The photos, for example, portray Levinson in an orange jumpsuit like those worn by detainees at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay. The family received them via email in April 2011. In each photo, he held a sign bearing a different message.

"I am here in Guantanamo," one said. "Do you know where it is?"

Another read: "This is the result of 30 years serving for USA."

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has personally and repeatedly criticized the U.S. over its detention facility at Guantanamo Bay.

U.S. operatives in Afghanistan managed to trace the cellphone used to send the photographs, officials said. But the owner had nothing to do with the photos, and the trail went cold.

It was that way, too, with the hostage video the family received. It was sent from a cyber cafe in Pakistan in November 2010. The video depicted a haggard Levinson, who said he was being held by a "group." In the background, Pashtun wedding music can be heard. The Pashtun people live primarily in Pakistan and Afghanistan, just across Iran's eastern border.

Yet the sender left no clues to his identity and never used that email address again.

Whoever was behind the photos and video was no amateur, U.S. authorities concluded. They made no mistakes, leading investigators to conclude it had to be a professional intelligence service like Iran's Ministry of Intelligence and Security.

Though U.S. diplomats and the FBI have tried behind the scenes to find Levinson, of Coral Springs, Fla., and bring him home, both presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama have said little about his case and have applied little public pressure on Iran for more information about Levinson's whereabouts.

Christine Levinson has watched more public pressure result in Iran's release of a trio of hikers, a journalist named Roxana Saberi and a team of British sailors captured by the Iranian Navy. Everyone has come home except her husband.

Washington's quiet diplomacy, meanwhile, has yielded scant results beyond the Iranian president's promise to help find Levinson.

In one meeting between the two countries, the Iranians told the U.S. that they were looking for Levinson and were conducting raids in Baluchistan, a mountainous region that includes parts of Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan, U.S. officials said. But the U.S. ultimately concluded that the Iranians made up the story. There were no raids, and officials determined that the episode was a ruse by Iranian counterintelligence to learn how U.S. intelligence agencies work.

An expert on Russian organized crime, Levinson retired from the FBI in 1998 and became a private investigator. He was investigating cigarette smuggling in early 2007, and his family has said that took him to the Iranian island of Kish, where he was last seen. Kish is a popular resort area and a hotbed of smuggling and organized crime. It is also a free trade zone, meaning U.S. citizens do not need visas to travel there.

FBI spokeswoman Jacqueline Maguire said: "As we near the sixth anniversary of his disappearance, the FBI remains committed to bringing Bob home safely to his family."

Christine Levinson said she has met with Obama and John Brennan, Obama's counterterrorism czar and nominee to run the CIA. She said that both men pledged to do everything they could to free her husband. Now, nearly six years after his disappearance, she thinks Iran is being let off the hook.

"He's a good man," she told the Associated Press. "He just doesn't deserve this."

General / Gen McChrystal says ‘serious action’ needed on gun control
« on: January 08, 2013, 09:57:32 AM »

Retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal said he supports gun control. Speaking on MSNBC’s "Morning Joe," the former commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan said some weapons should be carried only by soldiers, not civilians.
"I spent a career carrying typically either an M16, and later an M4 carbine," he said. "And an M4 carbine fires a .223 caliber round, which is 5.56 millimeters, at about 3,000 feet per second. When it hits a human body, the effects are devastating. It's designed to do that. And that's what our soldiers ought to carry."

The general added, "I personally don't think there's any need for that kind of weaponry on the streets and particularly around the schools in America. I believe that we've got to take a serious look. I understand everybody's desire to have whatever they want, but we’ve got to protect our children, we’ve got to protect our police, we've got to protect our population. And I think we have to take a very mature look at that."

The general, who had to resign his position as commander of the U.S. Forces in Afghanistan after an unflattering Rolling Stone magazine profile in 2010, is back in the public eye to promote his book, "My Share of the Task."
The former military man supports an assaults weapons ban. He told the show, “I think serious action is necessary. Sometimes we talk about very limited actions on the edges, and I just don’t think that’s enough.”

Asked what his message would be to the NRA and the House Judiciary Committee, he said, “I think we have to look at legislation. The number of people in America killed by firearms is extraordinary compared to other nations. And I don’t think we’re a bloodthirsty culture, and so I think we need to look at everything we can do to safeguard our people.”

I smell a commie. Guns, or high cap mags, are not the problems. These massacres are staged for 'gun control'. Should we ban 757s because they were used on 9/11?

Former Lake Worth pain clinic doctor sentenced
Lloyd E. Reich to serve five years probation including 90 days in jail

4:29 p.m. EST, January 4, 2013

A former Lake Worth pain clinic doctor was sentenced Friday to five years of probation — including 90 days in Palm Beach County Jail to start Monday — for writing a prescription for a patient he never treated.

Lloyd E. Reich, 64, pleaded guilty Sept. 27 to one count of unlawful prescription of a controlled substance, a third-degree felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison. He was arrested in July 2011 in connection with his work at the now-defunct Palm Beach Comprehensive Medical Center in Lake Worth.

But Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Stephen Rapp said even the 18-month prison term recommended by state prosecutors was too much because of Reich's poor medical condition. The judge heard testimony that Reich suffers from Parkinson's disease and Asperger syndrome, and takes 17 different medications.

205 North Dixie Highway West Palm Beach
Rapp also forbid Reich from seeking another medical license — he surrendered it in 2011 to avoid sanctions from the Florida Board of Medicine. And Reich must write a letter of apology to Kathleen Kiefer, whose 23-year-old son, Thomas J. Kiefer, Jr., died in March 2010 from an overdose after getting oxycodone pills from the clinic for a bad back.

"Big whoop," Kathleen Kiefer said after watching Reich's sentencing. "He's gotten away with virtually nothing."

  his hands trembling as he spoke to the judge, said he was sorry Kiefer died, and "I didn't even realize" that he had filled out prescriptions for patients he didn't treat at the clinic, 2887 Lake Worth Road.

Assistant State Attorney Phil Wiseberg said Reich was smart enough to know better and "at the end of the day he still needs to be punished for his actions."

Defense attorney Michelle Suskauer argued Reich would die in prison. She said her disgraced client was manipulated by the pill mill's former owner, Gloria Beshara, and her pharmacist husband, Louis Beshara.

Reich was targeted by the medical board after state inspectors found at least 10 suspicious prescriptions for narcotics he signed but were issued while he was on vacation, according to a complaint. or 561-243-6642

Eliyahu Weinstein was a rabbinical student

TRENTON — A Lakewood man charged with masterminding a $200 million Ponzi scheme could serve up to 25 years in jail under a plea agreement accepted in U.S. District Court Thursday.

Eliyahu Weinstein, a former rabbinical student and used-car salesman, will be sentenced April 2 by Judge Joel A. Pisano after admitting to wire fraud conspiracy and money laundering, with the government dropping nearly three dozen other charges.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office had charged that Weinstein and a co-conspirator — Vladimir Siforov, formerly of Manalapan — worked with others from 2004 through 2011 to lie to investors and fabricate documents to further the scheme. Siforov is charged with three counts of wire fraud and remains a fugitive.

Pisano in court said the agreement allows him the latitude to sentence Weinstein to anywhere from “zero to 300 months (25 years)’’ in jail and that Weinsten must pay restitution and provide a full accounting of all monies paid to him during the period covered by the indictment.

As the judge spoke, Weinstein paged through a copy of the agreement. When asked if he agreed to the terms, his response was nearly inaudible.

The government was represented by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Zach Intrater and Gurbir S. Grewal and Rachael A. Honig, deputy chief of the Criminal Division.

How odd that a swastika is used on negroes

WPTV) A Port St. Lucie, Florida house was burglarized and vandalized between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. Thursday. The home had a swastika, profanity and hate messages spray-painted inside.

"I really don't know what to think," said Yolanda LaFleur, the homeowner. "I don't know I have any enemies here, because I restrain myself to myself."

LaFleur and her husband are originally from Haiti, but she said she has been living in Port St. Lucie for nine years. Her husband joined her at their home in July 2011.

"I believe this is young kids that want to play, and scare us out," she said. "On the floor, they said (spray-painted) 'Move, n---s. We have our eyes on you.' And on the wall down in the family room, they put, 'Fuck, dirty niggers.' And then they have swastikas all over, my kids pictures and everything, they sprayed them black. I can't go in my room now, because they turned everything upside down."

Port St. Lucie Police Chief John Bolduc said authorities are canvassing the neighborhood, searching for suspects.

The World Below / The reasoning with assault rifles is flawed
« on: January 01, 2013, 12:22:07 PM »
These guns are $2,000

The purpose of a militia is to resist the government, such as the Russian revolution. The other purpose would be an invasion, aka 'Beaners' from Mexico. But the truth be told is that any gun that takes a magazine can be an assault rifle.

Rifles are usually not the weapon of choice because of size. A normal massacre would be a pistol, or a pistol and a shotgun. The above gun is $2,000. A real pro/psycho would have used a bomb, in a nap-sack at a theater, or even at a school. This is a Jewish thing to focus on assault weapons.

Police had to stop Irish immigrants from killing Jews

he New York City draft riots (July 13 to July 16, 1863; known at the time as Draft Week[2]) were violent disturbances in New York City that were the culmination of working-class discontent with new laws passed by Congress that year to draft men to fight in the ongoing American Civil War. The riots were the largest civil insurrection in American history.[3]

President Abraham Lincoln diverted several regiments of militia and volunteer troops from following up after the Battle of Gettysburg to control the city. The rioters were overwhelmingly working-class men, primarily ethnic Irish, resenting particularly that wealthier men, who could afford to pay a $300 commutation fee to hire a substitute, were spared the draft.[4][5]

Initially intended to express anger at the draft, the protests turned into an ugly race riot, with the white rioters, chiefly Irish immigrants,[6] attacking blacks wherever they could be found. At least 100 black people were estimated to have been killed. The conditions in the city were such that Major General John E. Wool, commander of the Department of the East, stated on July 16, "Martial law ought to be proclaimed, but I have not a sufficient force to enforce it."[7] The military did not reach the city until after the first day of rioting, when mobs had already ransacked or destroyed numerous public buildings, two Protestant churches, the homes of various abolitionists or sympathizers, many black homes, and the Colored Orphan Asylum at 44th Street and Fifth Avenue, which was burned to the ground.[8]

General / Florida surpasses one million permits for concealed weapons
« on: January 01, 2013, 08:18:33 AM »

SUMMARY:   Fl issued 2.4 mill permits and now there are 1 mill active

 ---Amid soaring gun sales, Florida distinguished itself from the rest of the country with a milestone this month: issuing one million permits for concealed weapons.

That number may get even more dramatic as Floridians, fearing further gun restrictions after the killings at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newton, Conn., scramble to sign up for the classes required to secure the permit.


At the National Armory in Pompano Beach, concealed weapons classes have gone from 12 students on an average night to 60, sometimes 75, said store owner Jeff Dillard.

"It's not because of safety, it's because of what happened in Connecticut," he said. "It's because they're afraid Barack Obama will ban guns."

The million distinction puts Florida at the forefront of a contentious national debate on gun control.

Michael Caruso, owner of Delray Shooting Center in Delray Beach, was surprised it wasn't higher. He noted a single permit holder could own 10 or hundreds of guns.

"Everybody should be carrying a concealed weapon, not just the one million," Caruso said.

Touted by state officials long before it happened, the million threshold was crossed around Dec. 19, according to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. At least 1,140 additional people have gotten a concealed weapon permit since then.

In Broward and Palm Beach counties, at least 141,961 people had concealed weapon permits as of Dec. 20.

Four out of five Florida permit holders are male and nearly a third of licensees are between 51 and 65 years old, according to the department of agriculture.

At a concealed weapons class at the Delray Shooting Center last Thursday, two out of the 13 students were women. One person had recently turned 21.

James LaRusso's weekly classes usually have a handful of people trying to qualify for a Florida concealed weapons permit. Last week he had more than a dozen.

Posters depicting "Three Rules for Safe Gun Handling," "Handgun Parts" and "Gripping the Pistol" hung from the classroom's gray walls.

LaRusso's instructions ranged from keeping the finger off the trigger until ready to shoot, to how and where it's OK to travel with a weapon to assuming a defensive posture if threatened.

"That's why we are getting our permits," he told them. "So we can protect ourselves."

And he stressed the importance of filling out the application properly to avoid rejection.

The one million number reflects an increase in applications for concealed weapons over the past decade, Adam Putnam, department of agriculture commissioner noted a week before reaching the benchmark.

The demand for permits prompted the department to simplify the application process, in 2009 launching a "Fast Track" service allowing applicants to seek a permit in person at a regional office instead of mailing it in. From July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010, a record 167,240 permits were issued.

The "fast track" feature was extended this year for those seeking renewals and more than 60 percent of all applicants use it, according to the department.

As applications for concealed weapon permits have increased over the years, so have the background checks conducted by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Toward the end of this year, there had been nearly 780,000 checks done by the agency.

Gun control advocates were not surprised Florida surpassed the million mark. In a July 2012 federal report Florida led the way in concealed weapons permits followed by Pennsylvania, Georgia and Texas. Florida allows permits from other states and vice versa.

Gun control advocates say that the permits invite violence. "The more permits that are out there the more incidents that will occur," said Kristen Rand, legislative director for the nonprofit Violence Policy Center, based in Washington, D.C.

Caruso, of Delray Beach, said people are buying anything that "remotely resembles an assault weapon."

"The best thing for my business is an anti-gun message, believe it or not," Caruso said. "You tell somebody they can't have something, they want 10, it's just human nature."

Last week, Vicki Parsons of Boynton Beach stood outside Caruso's range, which her family visits occasionally. Parsons, 55, said she had completed a gun safety course, but still hadn't submitted her application.

Getting a permit in Florida is very different than in her home state, Connecticut, Parsons said. For example, work and personal references are needed to get a permit, she said. Requirements vary from state to state with some saying Florida's are too lax.

"I sat there, went through the class and thought 'that's it?'" Parsons said. "I was surprised at how easy it was."

Ladd Everitt, director of communications for Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, said Florida hasn't responded to "serious flaws within the system."

Florida permit holders are not searched in the FBI database, National Instant Criminal Background Check System, so there are people from other parts of the country who would be disqualified not only from having a permit, but from owning a gun, he said.

It started with a simple psychic reading for a famous author, then spiraled into a $25 million fraud operated by a South Florida family of fortune tellers for more than 20 years, federal prosecutors say.

Rose Marks and eight members of her family are accused of preying on vulnerable and gullible clients who walked into their storefront psychic businesses in upmarket neighborhoods in Fort Lauderdale and New York City.
 In her first public comments about the federal charges, Marks, 61, told the Sun Sentinel she did nothing wrong.

"I'm innocent," Marks said. "I gave my life to these people — we're talking about clients of 20 years, 30 years, 40 years. We're not talking about someone I just met and took all their money and ran off."

Offering a rare glimpse inside the secret world of so-called Gypsy fortune tellers, Marks said she used her psychic abilities, Romani beliefs and common sense to help customers she thought were her friends.

Prosecutors have laid out their allegations in a 28-count indictment accusing the family of operating a money-laundering, mail and wire-fraud conspiracy that fleeced clients from around the world — including best-selling romance novelist Jude Deveraux.

"[Investigators] turned them around and twisted their minds and portrayed me as some kind of monster," Marks said of her former clients in an interview in late December.

Marks was the family matriarch and ringleader of a conspiracy that included her daughter, two sons and their spouses, granddaughter and sister, prosecutors say.All but one family member deny the allegations and the main defendants are scheduled for trial in April. One son, Michael Marks, pleaded guilty to mail and wire-fraud conspiracy last month.The women used assumed names and several called themselves Joyce Michael at their stores near The Galleria mall and the 17th Street Causeway in Fort Lauderdale.

In Marks' family, the paranormal was the norm, she said. She insists she has psychic abilities — "a gift from God" inherited by the women of her family for hundreds of years.

Marks calls it intuition or insight and explains it as the power to use parts of the brain most people can't reach. Her first psychic vision was at age 9, she said, when she accurately predicted her grandmother's sudden death. "It was scary," she said.

Her grandmother had herself predicted Marks' father would die at age 72 — and he did.

The family are Vlax Roma, the biggest Gypsy group in the U.S., and the women are traditionally fortune tellers, experts say.

 Fortune telling is legal but prosecutors say the Marks committed fraud by refusing to return clients' money and valuables, as promised.

The family's lawyers, led by Fred Schwartz, want the charges dismissed, alleging serious misconduct by the government. Prosecutors have not responded to the allegations but have dropped more than half of the initial 61 charges and cut $15 million from the alleged loss after one judge called the investigation "slipshod."

Marks' family emigrated from Greece in the late 1800s or early 1900s. They adhered to Romani culture and beliefs, such as paying dowries and having arranged marriages, but also tried to assimilate into American life. Their ancestors traveled in horsedrawn caravans a hundred years ago, but Marks grew up in a loving home near Newark, N.J.

Her father, Steve "Boyo" Eli, was a well-to-do landowner and respected Romani judge who mediated disputes within the Gypsy community over land, inheritances, divorces and dowries, Marks said. Her mother was a psychic.

Rose Marks attended public school but followed the Romani tradition of dropping out in third grade. She said she entered an arranged, and very happy, marriage at 16 or 17, and lived in Virginia until she moved to Broward County in 1998.

She and her late husband also opened a Manhattan store — on West 58th Street near Central Park and across the street from the famous Plaza Hotel — with signs touting astrology, the "laws of attraction" and clairvoyant services.

It was there Marks met multimillionaire author Deveraux, who walked into the store in January 1991 and had a psychic reading. Deveraux, now 65, began seeing Marks five or six times a week for hours at a time, Marks said. Deveraux was breaking up with her husband and sought guidance about that and her romantic interest in another man, according to Marks and investigators.

Marks said her relationship with Deveraux developed as a fuzzy blend of customer-turned-employer and friend.

Within months, Deveraux "wanted me to exclusively be her assistant, her consultant, her muse," Marks said.

"We came to an understanding that if I'm supposed to shut down my business and just work with her exclusively, then it would be, you know, expensive. She would have to pay me for 24 hours a day at her beck and call."

Marks claimed when Deveraux asked her fee, she jokingly suggested $1 million per year and Deveraux agreed.
