Sarasota Police Chief Mike Hollaway Has Lost Control of Newtown Thugs, Time For Fed’s to Step in With “Armed Career Criminal Act” and Lock Em Up For Good.
Sunday, January 08, 2012
SARASOTA HERALD TRIBUNE…”There were eight murders in Sarasota in 2011, all but one of which occurred in Newtown, the two-square-mile neighborhood commonly referred to as the black community. The rash of murders in North Sarasota has prompted Sarasota Police Chief Mikel Hollaway to intensify efforts to monitor and crack down in the area.” TOO LITTLE AND WAY TOO LATE!
The kindlier gentler approach of SPD Chief Mike Hollaway in 2011 to the violence and drug activity in Newtown was a complete failure as Newtown thugs ran wild shooting up the town with AK-47s and putting an international spotlight on the town with the cold blooded murder of British Tourists James Kouzaris and James Cooper. SPD Chief Mike Hollaway’s feeble efforts to crack down on Newtown thugs have given Sarasota Fl a black eye and he needs to be fired.
Time for the FBI and ATF to step in with “Armed Career Criminal Act” and lock em up for good. The Department of Justice’s Project Safe Neighborhoods program – a nationwide, gun–violence reduction strategy is led by the ATF. The ATF is coordinating the Project Safe Neighborhoods effort here in the Middle District of Florida in cooperation with federal (FBI), state, and local law enforcement officials.
The Armed Career Criminal Act of 1984 (ACCA) is a United States federal law that provides sentence enhancements for felons who commit crimes with firearms, if convicted of certain crimes three or more times they can receive a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.
If a felon has been convicted more than twice of a “violent felony” or a “serious” drug crime, the Armed Career Criminal Act provides a minimum sentence of fifteen years, instead of the ten-year maximum prescribed under the Gun Control Act.
Armed Career Criminal Act at work… Friday Jan. 6th, 2012 Tampa, Florida — U.S. Attorney Robert E. O’Neill announces that U.S. District Judge Virginia M. Hernandez–Covington today sentenced Antwon Stuckey (23, Palmetto, Manatee County Fl) to 235 months (19 years, 7 months) in federal prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Because of his extensive criminal history dating back to age 12, Antwon Stuckey was sentenced under the Armed Career Criminal Act. Stuckey pled guilty on January 31, 2010.
Antwon Stuckey, 23, was arrested on May 4, 2010, for several federal firearms violations after a six-month investigation by the Manatee County Sheriff’s office homicide unit and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, a media release said.
Manatee County Detectives targeted Stuckey because of “his propensity to commit violent crimes and his suspected involvement in numerous homicides within the county over the past few years,” the release said. In 2009, Stuckey was accused of shooting 21-year-old Julius Lee Brown, Jr., to death in Palmetto’s Memphis area while he slept. But charges were dropped after inconsistencies in a witness’s statement..NO SNITCHIN.
Antwon C. Stuckey DOB 12/12/1988 was indicted on three counts of felon in possession of a firearm after an AK-47, Beretta 9mm and a .32 semi-automatic pistol were seized from him, said Steve Cole, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office. It is another case prosecuted as a part of the Department of Justice’s “Project Safe Neighborhoods” program – a nationwide, gun–violence reduction strategy led by ATF.
