    Bird Road Rudy: From YouTube to lockup
    Posted on Thu, Jan. 17, 2008
    By EVAN S. BENN
    ebenn@MiamiHerald.com
    Rudy Villanueva, 31, was booked into Miami's Federal Detention Center on Wednesday morning.
    COURTESY OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY POLICE
    Rudy Villanueva, 31, was booked into Miami's Federal Detention Center on Wednesday morning.

    A Miami-Dade gang leader gained momentary notoriety this week when he popped up in YouTube videos holding guns and taunting police to ``come get some.''

    They came, and now Rudy Villanueva is being held in federal lockup awaiting arraignment later this month.

    ''He threatened law enforcement, he said come get him, and we granted his wish,'' said R. Alexander Acosta, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida.

    Officers from a multiagency gang task force Tuesday night raided the home of Tony Logan, who appeared in a video clip with Villanueva.

    In the clip -- filmed by Villanueva's girlfriend at Logan's apartment in December -- the two point rifles and handguns at the camera in a message apparently directed to the Miami-Dade Police Street Gang Unit.

    ''We were offended, obviously,'' said Lt. Israel McKee, head of the gang unit. ``They were threatening our lives. I didn't take kindly to that.''

    Agents found a cache weapons and more than 800 rounds of ammunition at Logan's apartment, according to a criminal complaint filed Wednesday. Among the confiscated items: a Mossburg shotgun and AK-47 semiautomatic rifle identified as the weapons Villanueva displayed in the video.

    Both men are known members of the Bird Road Boys, investigators said. Villanueva, a convicted felon with more than 20 arrests since 1995, has been the gang's leader for the past two years, police said. He also goes by the nickname King Bird Road.

    Villanueva told investigators the purpose of the video was to 'instill fear in people who will `roll up on me,' '' according to the criminal complaint.

    But South Florida's law enforcement community, which has seen four officers killed in the past six months, didn't take the video lightly.

    ''It seems every few weeks another officer is killed in South Florida,'' Acosta said, mentioning Broward Sheriff's Sgt. Chris Reyka, Deputy Paul Rein, Miami-Dade Officer Jose Somohano and Miami Detective James Walker. ``We cannot tolerate individuals owning firearms illegally and threatening police.''

    Villanueva, 31, was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Logan was charged with knowingly providing a firearm to a felon.

    They were being held in federal custody pending an arraignment on Jan. 31.

    Miami Herald staff writer David Ovalle contributed to this report.

    Yep - seems smarts let them down - score one-plus to LE .... nice to have an open invitation for a slime fest!!

    Maybe more slimes should do this - and make sure they give out all personal info and address etc - make LE's job so much easier.

    So, had one of them not been a felon, what would the charges be, or would there be any reason for the arrest?

    I don't approve of the actions, this is just to satisfy my curiosity.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Cool

    Don't know if the article came from a newspaper but it is nice to see that the AK-47 was described as a semi-auto rifle rather than an assault rifle.

    A prudent LEO takes into consideration the environment, his subject's actions, and the history. If the arrestee is resisting arrest, there usually is a reason for it. In this case, a short radio transmission confirmed it. Either way, in a criminal violent investigation, the LEO's are well within their rights to put someone on the hood if the're resisting. What else would you expect them to do...wait to get shot?

    You mean it wasn't a high-capacity assault rifle designed to kill police officers? With special ammo deisgned to puncture bulletproof vests and schools?

    Well, maybe his twenty-first arrest will help... How about this - on your 10th conviction, for ANYTHING, we kill you. Period. Right there in the courthouse - just take you in a back room and give you an arsenic sandwich...

    OK, that may be a little much, but seriously... How many times must you break the law (and be caught and convicted) before we just decide that you are unfit to live in society? Do we think that now, on the 21st arrest, Mr. King Bird Road (and what a silly nickname, really...are any of you scared?) will suddenly see the light, turn his life around, and become a productive member of society? Everyone deserves a second chance. Probably even a third, maybe a fourth if we're feeling generous. But twenty plus? There's got to be a line somewhere...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Miami Dade State Attorney is Katherine Fernandez Rundle who was anointed to the job by former State Attorney (ready for this?) Janet Reno. She has LOTS of donors at election time and it is the darling of all South Florida MSM even though she is despised by every rank and file police officer in the county.

    Do I need say more?

    Hey, those skits on SNL where Wil Ferrel did Janet Reno were pretty good... :)

    OPFOR for PRESIDENT!!

    I am so much in agreement with you it is scary! And I am NOT kidding. I do believe there comes a point where you have simply become a risk that is too great for society to continue to let you live. The greater good of the citizens out weighs your right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness when that happiness is gained by you hurting, murdering and intimidating the citizens.
    I think that 10 felonies is plenty. At that point you have proven yourself defective and we as a society should be able to throw you away, permanently.

    OPFOR for PRESIDENT!!
