Question: Why are so many big name retail chains being hacked all of the sudden?
An Avondale police cruiser was severely damaged after being rammed by the driver in a landscaping truck Oct. 23 near 111th Avenue and Durango Street.
AVONDALE, Ariz. – Glendale police will be investigating the criminal aspect of an assault on an Avondale officer by a theft suspect that left the officer with injuries.
The suspect, who allegedly stole a city of Avondale truck and led police on a wild pursuit, died after being shot by police.
The officer was taken to a Valley hospital after the suspect crashed the truck into his police cruiser in Avondale Thursday morning. The officer had not been identified as of 8 p.m. Thursday.
Avondale police said 43-year-old Jeremy Bustos of Avondale assaulted a City of Avondale maintenance worker then stole the worker's truck around 9 a.m. near 111th Avenue and Durango Street, prompting a ground and aerial pursuit. After a short chase, crews deployed stop sticks near the same intersection, disabling the truck. Video showed Bustos use the stolen truck to ram the officer's vehicle as the truck careered into a nearby tree. Aerial footage showed emergency crews extricating the officer from his cruiser before he was airlifted from the scene.
He is listed in stable condition.
Other officers were then seen with guns drawn approaching the truck just before Bustos got out and attempted to flee on foot. Avondale police said Bustos pulled out a machete and advanced on officers, prompting them to open fire. Bustos was taken to the hospital where he died from his injuries.
Dorothy Reyes heard the chase from her house. "He went back and forth a few times, I'd say four times, and then all of a sudden he just hit the cop car," Reyes said.
Avondale police Sgt. Brandon Busse said, "We were very lucky that the suspect didn't hit anybody else."
Avondale police asked the Glendale department to take over the criminal aspect of the investigation.
Got something in your house you don't want the cops to find? Then don't leave it to your fiancée or roommate to deal with the problem.

Then don't leave it to your fiancee or roommate to deal with the problem.
In a unanimous ruling Thursday, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected arguments from an Arizona man that federal agents had illegally searched his home. His attorney argued that because he was there but never consented to the entry, that makes the drugs they found inside inadmissible.
Judge Barry Silverman, writing for the court, acknowledged that the refusal of the occupant of a residence to consent generally makes a warrantless search illegal. And the judge said that applies even if someone else living there gave police the go-ahead.
But Silverman said what happened here is that Marlon Moore had the opportunity to object when the officers came knocking on his door. Instead, he refused to respond "and simply acquiesced in letting his fiancee deal with the police.''
Court records say the Department of Homeland Security had been tracking Moore for months as a suspect in a marijuana distribution ring. That eventually led to surveillance on his Laveen home based on a tip that a large quantity of the drug had been delivered there.
A knock on the door went unanswered. So an officer called a phone number on the taxi parked in front of the house and told the woman who answered the house was under surveillance for possible drug trafficking, and he was "in the middle of writing a search warrant.''
The woman, later identified as Moore's fiancee, came to the house and, after speaking with the officer, signed a consent to search.
She and some officers then went to the door, phoning Moore and her sister, also inside, but neither answered their respective phones. And she could not unlock the door because it had been bolted. The fiancee then called out to Moore and her sister that the police where there. When no one answered, officers sought -- and she granted -- permission to use a battering ram.
They found marijuana inside. Moore was convicted of possession with intent to distribute and sentenced to 46 months in prison.
Silverman said that for a warrantless search to be declared illegal two things have to happen.
First, the occupant must be physically present. That clearly was the case here. But Silverman said the person must "expressly refuse consent.''
"The facts at best show that Moore implicitly refused to allow the police to search the residence,'' the judge wrote.
He said it would have been one thing had Moore, after speaking the police, slammed the door and locked the deadbolt.
"Moore simply remained in the house while (his fiancee) worked with the police to gain entry to the house,'' Silverman wrote.

Today, Harry Reid invoked the so called “Nuclear Option” — a critical change in the rules of the Senate that provided a voice for the minority party. When Obama had control of the House and the Senate we saw him ram through Obamacare. Obama has three more years to exercise his agenda but is fearful that he may actually lose control of the senate in 2014 due to the public backlash against Obamacare. His burning agenda is to stack the DC court with left wing judges and place more liberals in key positions within the government. He has stated that he feels these nominees are being held up by the GOP via filibuster. So, getting rid of this provision allows Obama to act with impunity in regards to nominees thus ensuring that he can place liberals in any position he wishes.
The theory of backlash from politicians ramming crap down citizens’ throat doesn’t seem to apply in Arizona. The Republicans have rammed all kinds of partisan and ideological crap down our throats and still plan to keep doing it.
