Billings Gazette:Montana judge had no right to ask for arrest of immigrant who was in court to testify for his wife

Miguel Angel Reynaga Hernandez, a 40-year-old construction worker living in Billings, was detained in October after appearing in court with his wife, who was seeking a civil protection order against another person.

The Northwest Immigrant Rights Project contends that former Yellowstone County Justice of the Peace Pedro Hernandez had no authority to initiate Reynaga’s arrest. The group on Friday sued the judge and Yellowstone County sheriff’s deputy Derrek Skinner on Reynaga’s behalf in federal court.

“If a county or city sticks its nose into federal immigration matters, they are going to be held liable,” said Matt Adams, an attorney with the Seattle-based group. “Their job is to serve the community, not to help out their federal immigration authority buddies.”

“When the court is notified that something’s illegal, we are supposed to notify authorities,” Hernandez said. “That’s the function of the court.”

Laura Ingraham: Deputies were told to not enter Parkland shooting scene

“Now, our sources near the Broward County sheriff’s department are telling us that the deputies who arrived at the scene of the shooting were told not to enter the school unless their body cameras were turned on, and then we found out that the deputies did not have body cameras so they did not enter the building or engage the shooter,” Ingraham said.

“Curiously, police also lost radio communications during the parkland shooting. And our source claims that radio communication also went dead during the Fort Lauderdale airport shooting in 2017 that he also got a lot of criticism for.”

The Verge:Coinbase tells 13,000 users their data will be sent to the IRS soon

Coinbase told its customers on Friday that it plans to comply with a court order and hand over about 13,000 customers’ data to the IRS within 21 days. The IRS made the request back in November 2016, asking for the Coinbase records of all the people who bought bitcoin from 2013 to 2015 to seek out those who were evading cryptocurrency taxes. Anyone affected by the order should now have received an email from Coinbase to that effect.

Coinbase heavily resisted the summons. But ultimately, in November last year, the San Francisco court ruled Coinbase had to turn over identifying records for all users who have completed transactions of more than $20,000 through their accounts in a single year between 2013 and 2015. The data requested includes taxpayer IDs, names, dates of birth, addresses, and transaction records from that period.

Wtnh:Groton officer dragged for a mile

Just before 4:00 a.m. on Route 1 in Groton. A car was pulled over for a broken tail light and when the officer smelled marijuana, the driver agreed to get out of the car with his dog.

But before police say 22-year-old Taj Dickerson could be arrested for crack cocaine found in the car, he took off running back to his FORD.

“An officer gave chase on foot tried to stop him from engaging the vehicle putting it into drive,” said Groton Police Chief Louis Fusaro, Jr. “Unfortunately, the operator was able to do that. Took the officer along with him half in the vehicle and half out.”

Officer Tyler DeAngelo was dragged for about a mile. The car exceeded speeds of 50 MPH at times.

The officer eventually fell suffering only minor injuries and Dickerson was later caught in New London following a car chase.

Dickerson faces charges of Interfering with a Police Officer, Assault on a Police Officer, Reckless Endangerment 1st, Unlawful Restraint 1st, Threatening 2nd, Cruelty to animals, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Crack Cocaine, Reckless Driving, Engaging Police in pursuit, and Defective tail lamp.
