Our South Florida video production studio is covering the story of a man who was beaten by Orlando Police, following a domestic dispute he had with a girlfriend. The alleged victim, Noel Carter, and his attorney, Patrick Lawlor, a civil trial lawyer and sports agent, were our studio guests live on CNN’s New Day show earlier this morning telling their version of the events that transpired outside a downtown Orlando nightclub. Video has surfaced showing Mr. Carter being repeatedly kicked by police as he sat down on a sidewalk outside the nightclub. Police say the video only shows part of the story, that Mr. Carter was the aggressor and intoxicated and resisted arrest. Noel strongly denies those claims and any allegation that he had any physical contact whatsoever with his girlfriend. Noel says the two were engaged in a “public disagreement” and that it was the police who actually escalated the situation to the point where he was beaten and tased for no reason. In fact, Mr. Carter says he feared for his life and ran away from the police with his hands up in the air, signaling to them he was being submissive.
Noel says he was invited by his female companion to attend dinner and a concert in Orlando. He says he drank a few drinks at dinner (as one would enjoy some drinks in a casual and social setting) and that he was not intoxicated at all. Noel points to his girlfriend’s police statement that she does not mention any physical contact or abuse by him. He further states that it wasn’t until police arrived that she began to cry and that the police, instead of diffusing the situation, made it worse.
Noel and his attorney attorney are pursuing criminal charges against the officers.

Fort Lauderdale Remote Studio liveshot discussing the breaking news in Baltimore, where the prosecutor has just announced the arrests of all six police officers involved in the death of Freddie Gray. Our state of the art green screen studio (servicing Miami, Fort Lauderdale and all of South Florida) welcomed back, criminal defense attorney Mark Eiglarsh who was our studio guest live on Fox News’ The Kelly File. Mark and fellow criminal defense attorney, Arthur Aidala, discussed the breaking news with Megyn Kelly, giving their legal analysis and perspective on the case that has attracted nationwide attention.
Baltimore Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby held a press conference announcing that a grand jury has indicted all six officers. The most serious of all the charges is a second degree murder charge with a “depraved heart” meaning that the officer had indifference to human life. Four of the officers (including the officer charged with second degree murder) are charged with involuntary manslaughter. The grand jury also added a charge of reckless endangerment against each of the officers.
The charges stem from the death of 25 year old Freddie Gray, a week after he suffered a severe spinal cord injury while in police custody. His death sparked outrage within the community as protestors took to the streets. While most of the protesters were peaceful, there were some who vandalized and destroyed property, burned down local businesses and battled forcefully with police.
The case is now moved to Baltimore Circuit Court, where all the officers are scheduled to be arraigned on July 2. All the officers posted bail, following their arrest and bond court appearance before a judge. Officer Caesar Goodson Jr. is the officer charged with the second degree murder charged and could potentially be sentenced to as much as 60 plus years in prison. The other five officers face a maximum sentence between 20 to 30 years if convicted.
Our Fort Lauderdale video production studio has been covering a brazen jewelry heist in London where thieves took off with more than $300 million worth of stolen goods. Nine suspects have been arrested as more than 200 police officers raided at least a dozen properties in the north London area.
We welcomed back Larry Lawton, a former jewel thief turned honorary police officer, and author of the book “Gangster Redemption” who was live on CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin. Larry gave an in depth analysis as to the specifics of how such a massive heist was pulled off, predicting that more arrests are imminent. He believes, as do many law enforcement officials, that the heist was an inside job. Police were surprised and suspicious that there was no response to the alarm that was set off after the crime.
The heist happened during the Easter holiday weekend. Surveillance video shows the thieves drilling into a vault at the Hatton Garden State Safe Deposit Ltd, located in central London. They then fled the scene, taking off in a getaway van with the stolen merchandise and dozens of safety deposit boxes. Left behind at the scene, were the suspects’ power tools, crowbars and discarded boxes.
South Florida green screen video production studio (Miami, Fort Lauderdale) covering the story of a cyber security consultant who claims he has hacked into the computer systems of up to 20 flights. The latest incident involved a United Airlines flight to Syracuse, New York, where FBI officials detained the man, following posts he made on social media, discussing hacking the flight he was on. Our state of the art HD Studio in downtown, Fort Lauderdale, welcomed back, retired American Airlines Pilot, Jay Rollins, who discussed this story live on MSNBC’s Politics Nation with the Reverend Al Sharpton.
Chris Roberts, a security researcher with One World Labs, told the FBI he has managed to take control of an aircraft’s engine after successfully hacking into the airline’s in-flight computer systems. The alleged hacking incidents occurred between 2011-2014. Roberts was able to access the aircraft’s controls through the Seat Electronic Box (SEB) that are installed on on each side of the aisle on some planes. Roberts was able to finagle the box and attach an ethernet cable with a modified connector to the box and his laptop computer. This allowed him to gain access and control over the inflight entertainment system. Security experts have harshly criticized and condemned the alleged aircraft hackings, Some experts also are skeptical to whether or not Roberts’ hacking claims are truthful and even possible. Roberts claims his only intention is to improve airline security. It’s important to note that he has not, as of the present time, been charged with any crimes.
