    Pinned to the ground by officers who kneed and struck him, Lawrence Crosby screamed whatever he could think of to convince them that he was a law-abiding PhD student, not a violent car thief. “This is my vehicle, sir,” he said, his voice captured by the dashboard-camera video. “I have evidence. . . . I purchased this vehicle Jan. 23, 2015, from Libertyville Chevrolet.” It wasn’t enough. The officers placed him in handcuffs in the driveway of a church, two blocks from the police station in Evanston, Ill.

    Tarak Andrew Underiner wanted Ohio college students to have the right to carry guns on campus so they could defend themselves in dangerous situations – say, leaving the library late at night and traveling home alone. Now he’s the first homicide of 2017 in Columbus. The Lantern reports that the Ohio State University campus-carry activist was “found dead from gunshot wounds” at a residence near campus when police responded to a shooting around 12:30 a.m. Thursday. The police report says investigators don’t think the shooting was “random in nature.” Underiner, the treasurer of Buckeyes for Concealed Carry, testified in November...

    Chicago’s top cop said Thursday one of his officers was seriously beaten at an accident scene because the national focus on police shootings has caused officers to second-guess themselves. Superintendent Eddie Johnson said the patrol officer told him she did not use her gun to defend herself for fear of a backlash. "She didn’t want her family or the department to go through the scrutiny the next day on national news," he said. *snip* The suspect smashed the officer's face into the pavement repeatedly until she was unconscious, police said.

    Black men may have a legitimate reason to flee Boston police during investigatory or “Terry” stops, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled Tuesday. The court found that systemic racism in the Boston Police Department may be considered in conjunction with a suspect’s decision to flee from police during a stop. A Terry stop, named for the U.S. Supreme Court case which sanctioned the practice, refers to a brief detention and search of an individual due to reasonable suspicion of criminal conduct. In this case, a black male named Jimmy Warren was arrested in 2011

    Often here we're put on the defensive, such as when there's a mass shooting in this country, particularly with an unfriendly administration. They know all the answers - if we want gun violence to end, we need to eliminate guns (at least from law abiding citizens). If cops don't want to get shot in cold blood, perhaps they shouldn't shoot blacks in cold blood (he didn't exactly say that, but the message seems to be something like that). And the list goes on. So how about if we help. Let's list out a few 'suggestions' for the president to calm...

    Louisiana’s governor signed a first-of-its-kind bill Thursday afternoon that makes it a hate crime to target police officers and first responders. Called the “Blue Lives Matter” bill, the measure expands the state’s hate crime law to include law enforcement officers, firefighters and other emergency medical services personnel. “The overarching message is that hate crimes will not be tolerated in Louisiana,” Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards told FoxNews.com in a written statement. He added that he has “great respect” for the work that law enforcement officers do and the daily risks they take. “I thought it was critical that we add...

    Just so we're clear, here's the left's narrative on the police in America: There's widespread and institutionalized racism inside America's law enforcement agencies, and black Americans are especially targeted. This racism has led to the deaths of a disproportionate number of innocent black Americans. In order to stop this heinous activity, we need more gun control legislation, more wealth redistribution, more job and education programs, and thus Americans need to elect more Democrats... As I have often said, after our relationship with our Creator, the most important relationship in the universe is the relationship between a husband and his wife....

    Former NBA star Charles Barkley, now an analyst on Inside the NBA, said that most of the blacks killed that he has known were killed by other blacks -- not by white cops -- which he finds morally outrageous because it is rarely discussed, and he stressed that "we need the cops" because, without them, "we'd be living in the wild, wild West!" During a July 12 discussion on the Dan Le Batard radio show about the police and black men, Barkley said, “We don’t have near the outrages we do when a white cop kills somebody. Dan, I’ve been...
  • MOOCHELLE Said Blacks Should Vote Democrat

    Michelle Obama has said blacks should vote democrat, and Barack tips his hat to BLM, But BLM are just becoming an intimidation arm of the democrat party the same as the KKK were, and they are sold out for socialism the same as the Nazis. On top of that all of the aforementioned depend on justifying the hatred of a group or groups and unifying others on that hate and anger and motivate with the us against them mentality to achieve their insatiable goals.
