    A former California cop was arrested and outed Wednesday as the infamous Golden State Killer — the fiend who murdered at least 12 people and raped dozens of women in the 1970s and ’80s and whose crimes were chronicled in the recent best-selling true-crime book “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark,” authorities said. Officials said they nailed ex-Auburn and former Exeter police Officer Joseph James DeAngelo Jr., now 72, by putting him under surveillance a few days ago and getting “discarded DNA” from him — which they then linked to the horrific crime spree. “James DeAngelo has been called a...

    MS-13 has directed its members to “take out a cop” on Long Island — prompting the NYPD to put its officers on high alert, according to a new memo obtained by The Post. Police are hunting for the suspect, a tall, light-skinned Hispanic man with a thin build and a tattoo of three dots next to his eye. Police in Hempstead — one of the Long Island towns where the violent gang has a stronghold — were tipped off to the threat Wednesday by a “credible” informant, the NYPD memo said.

    An illegal immigrant began his murder trial for the 2014 killings of two Northern California sheriff's deputies on Tuesday with a profanity-laced rant, calling a partner of one of the slain officers a “coward.” Prosecutor Rod Norgaard recounted the events that led to the death of Sacramento Sheriff's Deputy Danny Oliver outside a Sacramento motel in October 2014, and described how Oliver's partner, Deputy Scott Brown, was able to retreat from the heavy gunfire. Luis Enrique Monroy Bracamontes, 37, the alleged killer, interrupted the court when he grinned and called Brown a "coward." Bracamontes was scolded by the Sacramento Superior...

    Minneapolis, MN – Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton defended the state’s Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) on Friday, after Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman told an activist group that investigators “haven’t done their job” in investigating the officer-involved shooting death of Justine Damond. The prosecutor cast blame on the BCA while speaking to an activist group at a union holiday reception on Wednesday, WCCO reported. He said he was tasked with determining whether or not Officer Mohamed Noor was justified when he shot Damond, but that officers had not provided him with the information he needed to make a decision. “I’ve...

    A Utah detective who was filmed handcuffing and dragging a nurse in July has been fired. Jeff Payne, a detective with the Salt Lake City Police Department, was fired Tuesday following an investigation, Chief Mike Brown said Tuesday.

The detective had support from his supervisor, Lt. James Tracy, who said Wubbels could be arrested if she didn't allow the blood draw. Payne eventually told Wubbels...
