Phone Firewall Identifies Rogue Cell Towers Trying To Intercept Your Calls

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Rogue cell phone towers can track your phone and intercept your calls, and it’s only a matter of time before they’re as ubiquitous as GPS trackers. But at least now there’s a way to spot them.

  A firewall developed by the German firm GSMK for its secure CryptoPhone lets people know when a rogue cell tower is connecting to their phone. It’s the first system available that can do this, though it’s currently only available for enterprise customers using Android phones.

  GSMK’s CryptoPhone 500, a high-end phone that costs more than $3,000 and combines a Samsung Galaxy S3 handset with the CryptoPhone operating system, offers strong end-to-end encryption along with a specially hardened Android operating system that offers more security than other Android phones and the patented baseband firewall that can alert customers when a rogue tower has connected to their phone or turned off the mobile network’s standard encryption.

  The problem with rogue cell towers is widespread. The FCC is assembling a task force to address the illicit use of so-called IMSI catchers—the devices that pose as rogue cell towers. But the task force will only examine the use of the devices by hackers and criminals—and possibly foreign intelligence agencies—not their warrantless use by law enforcement agencies bent on deceiving judges about their deployment of the powerful surveillance technology.

  IMSI catchers, stingrays or GSM interceptors as they’re also called, force a phone to connect to them by emitting a stronger signal than the legitimate towers around them. Once connected, pings from the phone can help the rogue tower identify a phone in the vicinity and track the phone’s location and movement while passing the phone signals on to a legitimate tower so the user still receives service. Some of the IMSI software and devices also intercept and decrypt calls and can be used to push malware to vulnerable phones, and they can also be used to locate air cards used with computers. The systems are designed to be portable so they can be operated from a van or on foot to track a phone as it moves. But some can be stationary and operate from, say, a military base or an embassy. The reach of a rogue tower can be up to a mile away, forcing thousands of phones in a region to connect to it without anyone knowing.”

Legal Pot In The US Is Crippling Mexican Cartels

 

 

 

” Marijuana has accounted for nearly half of all total drug arrests in the US for the past 20 years, according to the FBI’s crime statistics. And according to the Department of Justice (DOJ), a large portion of the US illegal drug market is controlled directly by Mexican cartels. The DOJ’s National Drug Intelligence Center, which has since been shut down, found in 2011 that the top cartels controlled the majority of drug trade in marijuana, heroin, and methamphetamine in over 1,000 US cities.

  Now, those cartels and their farmers complain that marijuana legalization is hurting their business. And some reports could suggest that the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is more interested in helping to protect the Mexican cartels’ hold on the pot trade than in letting it dissipate.

  Seven Mexican cartels have long battled for dominance of the US illegal drug market: Sinaloa, Los Zetas, Gulf, Juarez, Knights Templar, La Familia, and Tijuana. While some smaller cartels operate only along border regions in the Southwest and Southeast, giant cartels like Sinaloa have a presence on the streets of every single region.

  The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that pot farmers in the Sinaloa region have stopped planting due to a massive drop in wholesale prices, from $100 per kilo down to only $25. One farmer is quoted as saying: “It’s not worth it anymore. I wish the Americans would stop with this legalization.”

  VICE News talked to retired federal agent Terry Nelson, a former field level commander who worked to prevent drugs from crossing the southern border. Nelson said that before medical marijuana and state legalization in Washington and Colorado, about 10 million pounds of pot were grown in the US every year. But 40 million pounds came from Mexico.”

 

 

As we’ve said many times before the “war on drugs” is just an excuse for government corruption

 

 

” Given the DEA’s historic relationship with the Sinaloa cartel, and the agency’s fury over legalized marijuana, it almost seems like the DEA wants to crush the legal weed market in order to protect the interests of their cartel friends. Almost.

“ The DEA doesn’t want the drug war to end,” said Nelson, when asked about a possible connection between the agency’s hatred of legal pot and its buddies in Sinaloa. “If it ends, they don’t get their toys and their budgets. Once it ends, they aren’t going to have the kind of influence in foreign government. I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but where there’s smoke there’s probably fire.”

  The Sinaloa cartel came to prominence in January when the “Fast and Furious” scandal surfaced, in which it was revealed that DEA agents ignored Sinaloa drug shipments and essentially granted immunity to cartel criminals in exchange for information.

  The decade long relationship between Sinaloa and the DEA was detailed in the court testimony of Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla, also known as “El Mayito.” El Mayito, son of Sinaloa leader Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, told a Chicago court that DEA agents offered him deals in exchange for ratting on rival cartels and Colombian drug lords.”

Why Police Recover More Guns In Chicago Than Any Other City

 

th (1)

 

 

” It’s not news that Chicago has a gun problem. But that doesn’t make it any more palatable for Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy, a firm believer in systems management and improved gun laws as he works to reduce crime in the city.

“ We recover more guns than any city in the country every single year,” McCarthy said.

  McCarthy, who took over as head of the Chicago Police Department in 2011, by way of the New York and Newark, N.J., Police Departments, is confident that state laws and enforcement efforts directly correlated to lowered crime in those cities.

  Specifically New York, he says, has five laws, which Illinois doesn’t, that reduced gun seizures, gun arrests, murders and incarceration.”

  McCarthy is a Tool who does nothing but blame guns for his and the city government’s failure to bring any kind of order to Chicago. Read more here

New Videos Released In Attack On Hollywood Teen

 

 

Brutal Florida Attack

 

 

 

” CBS4 News has obtained a series of new and disturbing cell phone videos that show a vicious, unrelenting beating of a Hollywood teenager last November outside a home on McKinley Street.

  Hollywood Police say the videos depict Ericka Avery and Patricia Montes relentlessly punching and kicking the victim while telling her that the beating will cease if she has sex with a man named Jayvon Woolfork. Last month prosecutors showed a series of videos in court of the attack from inside the house. These new videos show what occurred before the attack moved inside.

  As the videos begin, the victim is on the ground being dragged on the ground and sustaining a series of blows from her attackers. Voices recorded on the videos refer to the victim having been maced. At one point, one of the females is heard asking, “Are you recording again?” before walking over to the victim and forcefully slapping her in the head.

  The videos reveal that at least two young men were watching the beating. One of the men is heard saying, “They don’t like this girl.” One of the females responds, “I told you we were gonna f— somebody up.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nearly Half Of Black Males And 40 Percent Of White Males Have Been Arrested By The Age Of 23, Claims New Survey

 

” A third of Americans have been arrested by the time they are 23 according to a new study released in the Crime & Delinquency journal on Monday.

  Amongst males the figure dramatically increases to almost half of black males and nearly 40 percent of white males, which can have a negative impact on their ability to find work, go to school and participate fully in their communities.

  The study analyzed national survey data from 1997 to 2008 of teenagers and young adults and their arrest histories, which ranged from truancy and underage drinking to more serious and violent offenses. Minor traffic violations were excluded.

  This is the first report since the 1960s on how the risk of arrest varies across race and gender, said Robert Brame, a criminology professor at the University of South Carolina and lead author of the study.

 The study’s most striking finding is the variance amongst males of different races:

  • By age 18, 30 percent of black males, 26 percent of Hispanic males and 22 percent of white males have been arrested
  • By age 23, 49 percent of black males, 44 percent of Hispanic males and 38 percent of white males have been arrested “

Divided Nations: Americans, 8-1, Oppose Diplomatic Immunity For Foreign Scofflaws

 

 

 

” Americans have had it with foreign diplomats breaking U.S. laws and then receiving a “get out of jail free” pass, according to a new poll that shows overwhelming opposition to the practice of giving lawbreakers stationed at the United Nations and Washington embassies diplomatic immunity.

  The new YouGov poll bolsters the State Department’s Dec. 12 arrest and strip search of a top Indian diplomat charged with falsifying visa information for her Indian maid and paying her pauper’s wages of $600 a month despite promises of $4,500 a month.

  The prosecution of Devyani Khobragade, India’s deputy consul general in New York City, has roiled U.S.-India relations. Images of President Obama have been burned in New Delhi, but the State Department isn’t backing off. Khobragade has denied the charges, even claiming that her maid had tried to blackmail her.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poll: 63% Of Americans Say Stricter Gun Control Laws Won’t Prevent Criminals From Getting Guns…

 

 

 

” In other words, 63% don’t believe’s the Dems excuse for wanting to take guns away from law-abiding Americans.

Via Reason:

  When it comes to keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, 63 percent of Americans remain unconvinced that tighter restrictions on buying and owning guns will be effective, according to the latest  Reason-Rupe poll. About a third (32 percent), said stricter regulations would be effective in preventing criminals from obtaining guns.

  Seven in ten Republicans say stricter gun regulations would not be effective while just 26 percent say they would be effective.  Democrats are more divided on the issue.”

 

Apparently , fully one third of Americans suffer from the delusion that criminals obey the law … go figure …

 

 

 

 

 

 

How Safe Is Your Neighborhood? NYPD Releases New Interactive Map Revealing The City’s Most Dangerous And Violent Streets

 

 

Color coded: The darker the neighborhood precinct the more crime per thousand people is committed. From this map areas of Brookyln, The Bronx and Times Square Manhattan have experienced most violent crime since January

 

 

 

 

” The NYPD has for the first time released an interactive map that shows all serious crimes committed in the city – confirming the increased danger of living in a poor neighborhood.

  Enabling New Yorkers to finally see how their street matches up against other boroughs, the map reveals that incidences of the seven major felony crimes – including murder, rape and robbery – are more common in neighborhoods where the average income is lower.

  New York Police and the city’s Information Technology and Telecommunications Department unveiled the new map on Sunday despite the force’s insistence that the statistics have been available on their website since 2003.”

 

 

Details: The map can be enlarged to show as near to possible where each crime was reported. Larger circles mean multiple crimes were reported in the vicinity

Shoplifter Knocked Out For Stealing

   Tired of constantly rising prices ? Then do your part like this gentleman did . Shoplifting and theft play a major role in the cost of doing business and as is typically the case in the business world that cost gets passed on to the consumer . That means that the law-abiding shoppers , you and I , ultimately pay for the shoplifter’s scores .

   This man obviously had had enough and decided to do his part . We should all be so forthright and courageous . Fighting back is the best way to decrease crime and increase public safety . It’s exactly the “it’s none of my business” attitude that has led us to a society of dependence , fear and loss of liberty . Face it , the government can’t do for us , we need to do for ourselves , and this gentleman struck a blow for us all when he knocked out the thief .

Milwaukie Woman Pulls Gun On Intruder

 

 

” An intruder in Milwaukie tried to break into a home after he had already walked into two other apartments and had a gun pulled on him Friday night.

The man was captured on surveillance video walking up to a home and looking through a window at children playing with their babysitter. The man is then seen trying to open the door and get inside. When he discovers the door is locked, he takes off. 

Before trying to get in the home, the man had reportedly walked in two other apartments. In one, he followed Crystal McKinney upstairs and inside.”

 

    The armed citizen is the greatest deterrent to crime , of that there is no doubt . Criminals have little to fear from the police and everything to fear if they know that their potential victims are not defenseless sheep . Kudos to Ms McKinney for having the gun handy and for being confident enough of her abilities to use it in her own and our defense . We say “our” defense even though we live thousands of miles from her town in Oregon because every successful defense against the criminal class by law-abiding citizens makes all of us safer . 

The progressive trend of deferring to the police and disarming the public over the past couple generations , which thankfully is receding , has been a major cause of the rise in crime . When criminals have no fear of consequences crime proliferates . When thugs fear for their safety they go elsewhere or pay a price . We are all better off for Ms McKinney’s actions and for that we thank her .

 

 

 

 

 

 

Home Invader Shot After Shooting Man In Face

 

 

” Two men and one woman were at home when Matthew Banks, 26, entered the house at 4:25 a.m., according to a Gainesville Police report in which the address of the incident and the names of the victims were redacted.

Authorities did not reveal the condition of the wounded victim or Banks, of 2229 SE 30th Drive.

Police gave this account: The male victim was asleep on a couch when Banks and a second suspect entered the house.

A woman in the house had gotten up to check on another person in the house, who is blind, when she heard two loud booms and then the man shouting that he had been shot in the face.

The woman got a gun from a closet and walked down the hall toward the living room when she saw Banks pointing a gun at her. She fired a shot and told police that she was sure that she hit him.”

Prison Justice: 23-Yr-Old Pedophile Gutted By Inmates After Bragging About His Crimes

 

 

 

” A 23 Year old prisoner has lost his life to prison justice. Like so many others, he found out that a different form of justice gets carried out by prison inmates in the cases involving women and children.

According to other prisoners, he bragged about his crimes when asked what he was in for. He detailed the raping of a 13-year-old girl who earned him his conviction, but he had been caught twice previously for sexual offenses including minors.

Two inmates  entered his cell on Saturday morning with prison shanks and confronted him. They proceeded to cut open his stomach and pull his internal organs out, leaving some of them lying on the cell floor to confirm his imminent death. After disemboweling him, the 23 and 32-year-old men who have not been named as of yet, cleaned up and went to breakfast! The un-named inmates turned themselves in to prison guards for the crime that had not yet been discovered after completing their meal.”

 

   The inmates did the country a favor . One less s***bag for the taxpayers to feed . Justice is sometimes served and even some of the most hardened criminals have limitations to what they find acceptable .

  Note: After the fact , we found that this story dates from 2011 but we’ve decided to post it anyway as it is a story of hope even as it is of brutality .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New York State Exposed: Is The SAFE Act Driving Businesses Out Of NY?

” Gun retailers and manufacturers say the SAFE Act is having a negative impact. 

Joseph Palumbo owns Albion Gun Shop in Albion. He says since the SAFE Act went into effect earlier this year, he has lost 40 to 50 percent of business.  He and his family have considered moving out of state.

Palumbo said, “I don’t want to leave, this is where I live, this is my home, but I have to do what I have to do to survive.”

Amanda Ciavarri asked, “What would you say to the hundreds of people who say hundreds, maybe thousands of jobs in upstate New York, have been lost because of the New York State SAFE Act? It’s driving gun retailers and gun manufacturers across the boarder to Pennsylvania.” 

Governor Cuomo said,  “I don’t think that’s correct on the facts.”

Cuomo’s main reason for the SAFE Act has been safety. But, is this the solution? A study from the  Center for Disease Control and Prevention, which aims at the reducing the threat of gun violence, says gun restrictions don’t necessarily prevent violence. The study suggests better policing and targeting certain areas works. The SAFE Act passed 43 to 18 in the New York Senate, but 52 counties including Monroe, Ontario, Wayne have passed resolutions opposing the SAFE Act. Ten counties have not.”

   As the above graph clearly shows , dangers of gun violence and murder in the New York is a myth . The crime rates have been plummeting even as gun ownership has skyrocketed , since Rudy Giuliani instituted the “broken windows” policy in the early nineties . The need for the government to ban legal firearms ownership is a misleading effort to consolidate power with the State and has nothing at all to do with “safety” .

Gangster Disciple Calls Out Rahm, Jesse Jackson, On Chicago Violence

 

NOONIE G

 

 

” A former high-ranking member of “Gangster Disciples” street gang, “Noonie G,” has called out the Chicago machine for failing to address the root causes of Chicago violence: the illegal drug trade. Speaking to Breitbart’s Rebel Pundit, he referred to people like Jesse Jackson, Jr., and Al Sharpton as “sympathy pimps,” unleashing a scathing attack on the players who enable the violence to continue–and shield the public from a true understanding of what’s going on…”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are Guns the Problem?

 

 

A Page From The 1966 Sears Catalogue

 

 

” Every time there’s a shooting tragedy, there are more calls for gun control. Let’s examine a few historical facts. By 1910, the National Rifle Association had succeeded in establishing 73 NRA-affiliated high-school rifle clubs. The 1911 second edition of the Boy Scout Handbook made qualification in NRA’s junior marksmanship program a prerequisite for obtaining a BSA merit badge in marksmanship. In 1918, the Winchester Repeating Arms Co. established its own Winchester Junior Rifle Corps. The program grew to 135,000 members by 1925. In New York City, gun clubs were started at Boys, Curtis, Commercial, Manual Training and Stuyvesant high schools. With so many guns in the hands of youngsters, did we see today’s level of youth violence?”

 

 

 

 

” What about gun availability? Catalogs and magazines from the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s were full of gun advertisements directed to children and parents. For example, “What Every Parent Should Know When a Boy or Girl Wants a Gun” was published by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. The 1902 Sears mail-order catalog had 35 pages of firearm advertisements. People just sent in their money, and a firearm was shipped. For most of our history, a person could simply walk into a hardware store, virtually anywhere in our country, and buy a gun. Few states bothered to have even age restrictions on buying guns.

 

 

 

 

 

”  Those and other historical facts should force us to ask ourselves: Why — at a time in our history when guns were readily available, when a person could just walk into a store or order a gun through the mail, when there were no FBI background checks, no waiting periods, no licensing requirements — was there not the frequency and kind of gun violence that we sometimes see today, when access to guns is more restricted?

California Lawmakers Move To Shield Illegal Immigrants From Deportation

 

 

” Police in California would be prohibited from helping deport some illegal immigrants under a bill being considered by Gov. Jerry Brown, in a proposed change some say would violate federal law.

The so-called Trust Act would bar police from cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers on a variety of cases. Proponents say the bill is narrowly focused and only applies to those illegal immigrants arrested for minor crimes.

Prosecutors and sheriffs disagree.

“If you or I were victimized by someone stealing our identity, selling drugs in our community, burglarizing our home or embezzling our money, that’s okay? That’s a minor crime under this bill,” complained Marin County Sheriff Robert Doyle. “If this law passes, we will not be able to put holds on people who have previously been deported. So someone could be deported one, two, three, four — 10 times and that would not be cause for us to put a hold on them.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

American Gun Use Is Out Of Control. Shouldn’t The World Intervene?

 

 

” That’s America, we say, as news of the latest massacre breaks – last week it was the slaughter of 12 people by Aaron Alexis at Washington DC’s navy yard – and move on. But what if we no longer thought of this as just a problem for America and, instead, viewed it as an international humanitarian crisis – a quasi civil war, if you like, that calls for outside intervention? As citizens of the world, perhaps we should demand an end to the unimaginable suffering of victims and their families – the maiming and killing of children – just as America does in every new civil conflict around the globe.

The annual toll from firearms in the US is running at 32,000 deaths * and climbing, even though the general crime rate is on a downward path (it is 40% lower than in 1980). If this perennial slaughter doesn’t qualify for intercession by the UN and all relevant NGOs, it is hard to know what does.

 

* This is a bogus number as the FBI Homicide statistics show . In reality the total of ALL homicides annually regardless of method used is less than half of the number cited .

   The author can include suicides if he wants but that is a red herring . The suicide rate has no bearing whatsoever on public safety . In fact there is a strong argument to be made from the libertarian side that a person should have the right to end his/her own life should they so choose , but that’s a matter for a different post .

    As the above chart shows the murder rate peaked in 1980 and has been generally headed downward ever since .

     To simplify matters here are the odds of an American being murdered on a per capita basis from 1960 to the present , decade by decade :

1960 – 1 in 19,684

1970 – 1 in 12,702

1980 – 1 in 9,781

1990 – 1 in 10,610

2000 – 1 in 18,056

2010 – 1 in 20,940

2012 – 1 in 21,172

   While these figures include murder of all kinds and not just firearms deaths the trend is clear . The individual American is safer today than at any time in the past half century . What has changed for the worse is the sensationalism and dishonesty of the mainstream media and it’s creation of the 24 hour news feed .

   The ever present desire for ratings combined with the media becoming more and more of a government handmaiden has created the illusion of a country awash in violence when , in fact , the opposite is the case .

   See for yourself . Below are the crime stats from 1960 through the present on a per capita basis .

   A quick review of the above table reveals that the rates for violent crime , property crime , rape ,robbery , larceny and auto theft all peaked in 1991 . The rates for murder and burglary peaked in 1980 and assault in 1992 . 

   The Statists control the “bully pulpit” and thus would have us believe that we are under siege and in need of an armed intervention . It all boils down to Rahm Emanuel’s ” never let a crisis go to waste ” statement with the added caveat that if there is no crisis , manufacture one .

 

   Here is additional food for thought .

    According to the above table virtually ALL of  Eastern Europe , South America , Africa and Asia have drastically higher murder rates than the US yet we don’t hear any calls for intervention there . In closing we would say ” Mind Your Own Damn Business ” . We have a handle on our crime rates . Find someone who doesn’t and offer your ideas to them . 

   Perhaps you should take a look out your window Mr Porter .

Mayors Jumping Ship From “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” Following Scandals and Organization’s Overreach

” We’ve reported on numerous scandals plaguing Mayors Against Illegal Guns in recent weeks.

  Now, according to a report on Buzz Feed, numerous mayors are abandoning the organization, and new mayors are more hestitant to join the group than in the past.

  According to Buzz Feed,

” According to an old version of its member list, saved on a blog dated back to late February, more than 50 mayors who were then listed on MAIG’s website are no longer there. Most of the mayors whose names are no longer affiliated with the group are off the list either because they resigned or lost an election, but others have specifically asked to be removed.

   At least two mayors, Mayor Donnalee Lozeau of Nashua, NH and the mayor of Rockford, Illinois, Larry Morrissey, left the group earlier this year due to the overreaching and ever expanding anti-gun efforts of the group. Many mayors thought the group’s primary purpose was to keep guns away from criminals, but as the group began to lobby for bans on certain types of weapons, magazine capacity limits and further gun legislation, it has become clear that Michael Bloomberg is using the group to spread his personal, anti-gun politics to other areas of the country.

In 503 Days Between Trayvon Shooting and Zimmerman Verdict, 10,865 Blacks Murdered by OTHER BLACKS

” Check this out:

To be exact, the shameful truth is that 93% of African-American murders are committed by other African-Americans. That is breathtakingly awful when you consider how incensed the African-American community is about the Trayvon tragedy, no matter what you believe about Zimmerman’s guilt.

Let’s do the gruesome math, not out of morbidity, but because it manifests the incredible self-centered insanity of people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

8,000-9,000 African-Americans are murdered each year.

93% of them by other African-Americans.

That’s 7,905 (from average)

That’s 21.65 murdered each day by other African-Americans.

And these racebaiting culture-hustling microphone-pimps only get riled up when a “White Hispanic” kills an African-American? It’s absolutely shameful.”

TRAYVON MARTIN’S INVOLVEMENT IN LOCAL BURGLARIES COVERED UP BY MEDIA, SCHOOL, POLICE, PROSECUTORS

 

 

oCTOBER 2011 - 1

 

 

” It was that M-DSPD internal affairs investigation which revealed in October 2011 Trayvon Martin was searched by School Resource Officer, Darryl Dunn. The search of Trayvon Martin’s backpack turned up at least 12 pcs of ladies jewelry, and a man’s watch, in addition to a flat head screwdriver described as “a burglary tool”.

When Trayvon was questioned about who owned the jewelry and where it came from, he claimed he was just holding it for a “friend”. A “friend” he would not name.

On October 21st 2011 a burglary took place a few blocks from Krop Senior High School where Trayvon Martin attended. The stolen property outlined in the Miami-Dade Police Report (PD111021-422483) matches the descriptive presented by SRO Dunn in his School Police report 2011-11477.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHICAGO MURDERS SOAR: 67 SHOT, 11 KILLED OVER JULY 4 WEEKEND–SO FAR

 

 

 

” There were 67 people shot and 11 killed over the long Independence Day weekend in Chicago. Of the 67, eight were shot, with one killed, in a single Saturday evening attack in the West Side neighborhood of Lawndale.

For the 28 days leading up to this past Father’s Day weekend–another bloodbath itself, in which 46 were shot and 8 were killed, including one shot by a police officer–murder numbers matched 2012 exactly with 41. Chicago Police data show that in the two weeks following, another 27 were gunned down and killed.”

Texas Executes 500th Person Since 1982

 

 

 

 

” Fifty-two-year-old Kimberly McCarthy became the 500th person to be executed in Texas on Wednesday. Texas is the first state to reach such a number of executions, since capital punishment’s reinstitution in 1982. 

McCarthy, a former nursing home therapist, had been convicted for the 1997 robbery, beating and fatal stabbing of her 71-year-old neighbor, Dorothy Booth.

Booth, a retired college psychology professor, was attacked by McCarthy in her house in Lancaster, Dallas. McCarthy cut off Booth’s finger in to order to remove her wedding ring, according to authorities.”
