James Fairbanks of Omaha, Nebraska, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder on Tuesday for the killing of a pedophile on the sex offender registry after he confessed to the action.
Fairbanks, a local middle school employee in Omaha, claims to have killed Mattieo Condoluci, who was found dead in his house, after Fairbanks discovered the latter was on a sex offender registry for sexually abusing children and feared that he would offend again.
He laid out his motivations in an email to the media, describing how he discovered what Condoluci had done while researching a neighborhood he was considering moving into. He wrote:
“I drove by and to my horror he was standing in his driveway pretending to wash his truck (no soap or water just a rag) while staring at a group of children playing in the street. I watched him for a few minutes and just felt sick to my stomach. He just kept staring at them. The kids thankfully left and he went inside. I went to drive away and noticed to my amazement this twice convicted sex offender had a playground set in his backyard! No fence. Just a slide and a play house. I felt sick to my stomach.”
Fairbanks further said that the experience “agonized” and left him sleepless for days, and he finally came to the conclusion that he “couldn’t in good conscience allow him to do it to anyone else while I had the means to stop him.” He states he is “willing to turn myself in even though I’m confident I wouldn’t be caught.”
County Attorney Brenda Beadle disparaged the action, saying that Fairbanks “doesn’t get to be the judge and jury,” and she wouldn’t “classify somebody who would kill somebody in cold blood a hero.”
However, this is exactly what many have done. He was reportedly greeted with a standing ovation from other inmates at the Douglas County jail, and there has been an outpouring of support on social media, and multiple attempts to fundraise for his legal fees, which have all been shut down.
Even Amanda Henry, Condoluci’s daughter, expressed understanding for the action, calling her father a “monster” and stating that she was not at all surprised to hear that someone had done this, adding that “children are much safer now.”
She also supports a petition, currently at over 13,000 signatures and counting, for President Trump to pardon Fairbanks.
Despite some history of domestic disagreement, his ex-wife, Kelly Tamayo, largely came to his defense, saying that he called her after he did the deed to confess and state his intention to turn himself in. She described her ex-husband as a “protector” who cared deeply for his own family and children and likely was “overwhelmed by the thought that this man was going to offend again.” She also mentioned that he had often worked with very “troubled” kids himself, and “was able to talk with them and calm them down.”
In his email to the media, Fairbanks described that part of his outrage came from knowing that Condoluci, responsible for abusing multiple children including one who later died of a drug overdose, only served a two year prison sentence. He further remarked that “in this messed up judicial system… I will face far more severe punishment for stopping him then he did for raping KIDS.”
Despite this, it has been reported that Fairbanks has remained “surprisingly upbeat,” likely encouraged by the massive expression of public support and condolences.
While his actions may have been in technical violation of the law, it is clear that many view Fairbanks as a hero who stepped in where the judicial system failed, and acted in a way becoming an honest man of moral character who did not want to see others hurt. As long as the American judicial system continues to perpetuate such gross injustices and inequalities of punishment as exemplified in the case of Mattieo Condoluci, more people may be inspired by Fairbanks’ example. In any case, President Trump should heed the petition and step in to give a pardon in this extraordinary case.
Former Mexican Defense Minister is Arrested in Los Angeles for Allegedly Protecting a Drug Cartel
More Proof that Mexico is An Institutional Dumpster Fire
Retired Mexican General Salvador Cienfuegos was arrested on October 15, 2020.
According to allegations from U.S. prosecutors, General Cienfuegos received bribes from a powerful Mexican cartel and allowed to smuggle drugs into the United States.
An indictment that was unsealed on October 17, revealed that from December 2015 to February 2017, while he served as Mexico’s Secretary of National Defense, Cienfuegos allegedly worked on behalf of a drug cartel. In working with this drug cartel, Cienfuegos earned the nickname of “El Padrino” (The Godfather) by helping the H-2 Cartel move drugs from Mexico to the U.S.
“The defendant [Cienfuegos] abused that public position to help the H-2 Cartel, an extremely violent Mexican drug trafficking organization, traffic thousands of kilograms of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana into the United States,” prosecutors contended in a letter sent to a U.S. District Court judge in New York.
“In exchange for bribe payments,” the letter argued, he allowed the cartel “to operate with impunity in Mexico” while it operated distribution networks in cities such as Los Angeles and Las Vegas and in other states such as Ohio, Minnesota, North Carolina and New York.
U.S. agents took the retired general into custody on October 15 at Los Angeles International Airport. Cienfuegos is expected to be transferred to New York.
Cienfuegos served as defense secretary from 2012 to 2018 under the administration of then-President Enrique Peña Nieto.
“The main problem in Mexico is corruption,” López Obrador declared during a news briefing on October 16 regarding the incident.
In López Obrador’s view, it is “regrettable” that someone in such a high position of government has deep connections to drug cartels.
“This is a process of progressive degradation,” López Obrador continued, “and we are trying now to figure out how deep the corruption goes.”
As of now, Cienfuegos is the most prominent Mexican official to have been arrested on drug trafficking charges. In 2019, U.S. authorities arrested Genaro García Luna, the Secretary of Public Security under the administration of former President Felipe Calderón, for allegedly being involved in drug trafficking.
According to the U.S. indictment, Cienfuegos was working with H-2, an alleged branch of the Beltrán-Leyva criminal cartel. On top of that, prosecutors claims that the retired general received bribes to shield the cartel and its leaders. He then proceeded to inform them beforehand of military actions planned against them and even used troops to attack a rival cartel.
Mexico is clearly on the ropes institutionally. With a current president (AMLO) who wants to take a “hugs not bullets” approach to crime, the country will continue to spiral into chaos as drug cartels become even more powerful. President Trump has been right all along in building a wall to protect America from the potential spillover effects of Mexico’s drug war.
