Have not heard back from Her “Honor” yet, regarding Andre Taylor (aka “Gorgeous Dre”, aka “The Big Pimp”) exploiter of juvenile females.
But in seems the current nationwide riots are all the fault of white males.
She is delusional.
Las Vegas True Crime Stories
We left off talking about the commitment by the new U.S. Attorney in Nevada, Nicholas Trutanich, to combat human trafficking, that is, child prostitution (i.e. the rape of girls too young to legally consent to sexual acts) in Las Vegas. Here’s some shocking information.
About a year ago, I got a tip that the “Big Pimp” aka “Gorgeous Dre” (Andre Taylor) the predatory exploiter of children whom I led off our office’s pimp initiative against in 1999, was now working in law enforcement in Seattle. I found that to be incredible; it could not possibly be true.
A little investigation on Google and – what do you know? Andre Taylor is (or was) the co-chair of the city’s “Serious and Deadly Force Investigation Taskforce”.
So this scumbag was going to review police use of force in Seattle?
This all began when his brother – Che Taylor – who was a multi-convicted felon, including rape and robbery, was shot to death in a confrontation with Seattle police. At the time, Taylor was under surveillance in an undercover drug operation, and was observed reaching for what police believed to be a firearm. As a felon, Che Taylor was a person prohibited from possessing a firearm or ammunition. After the shooting, police recovered both a handgun and drugs.
Outraged, Andre Taylor started a pressure group called “Not This Time” which I am told received “subsidies” from the city – as well as, among others, the Seattle Seahawks. It sounded like he was trying to become the next Jesse Jackson.
In an attempt to appease the “community”, the city established a panel which managed to change the law regarding police use of force through initiative I-940. This bill amended prior law that police can be criminally prosecuted for using deadly force only if it’s shown they acted with malice. The standard is now whether a reasonable officer would have done the same thing. The bill was the first was signed into law by Governor Jay Inslee in 2019.
I have recently been advised that Andre Taylor is seeking the establishment of a position for him as liaison between the police and the community, in cases of alleged police “use of force”.
Amid the flood of headlines reporting the latest horrific gun violence in our country, United States Attorney Nicholas Trutanich recently committed to take the lead for Nevada in the Department of Justice’s announced reinvigoration of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN).
“Project Safe Neighborhoods is one of the most effective crime prevention tools in the Department of Justice’s toolshed to reduce violent crime” said Trutanich during a recent summit of law enforcement officials from throughout the state. He was absolutely correct.
In the early 90’s, my colleagues and I initiated a program that was, essentially, Project Safe Neighborhoods. This was a time that PSN was but a twinkle in the eye of President George H. W. Bush’s DOJ, so we were well ahead of the curve.
Consequently, Attorney General John Ashcroft recognized our office during his keynote speech at the very first Project Safe Neighborhoods national conference in Philadelphia, in 2003. I received an award for my efforts.
As is apparent, PSN was a resounding success in Las Vegas – for a time. It’s demise in Nevada is another story, for another day…
As I sat in retirement, complacently musing about nothing in particular, something on the TV caught my attention: a live press conference regarding the federal criminal case against former Nevada Senate Majority Leader Kelvin Atkinson.
Mr. Atkison had just pled guilty to federal wire fraud and admitted misusing nearly $250,000 in campaign funds.
Nothing to see here, folks, just another corrupt Vegas politician. Also typical was the U.S. Attorney for Nevada, along with his FBI and IRS counterparts, filling the press in on the details.
What stood out – to me – was the public recognition which U.S.A. Nicholas Trutanich gave to the lead prosecutor in the case, who was off-camera.
