  • Georgia deputy stabbed in sheriff's office restroom, suspect shot dead, officials say

    A Georgia deputy was injured Tuesday night after being stabbed in a sheriff’s office restroom by a man who authorities say became hostile before eventually being fatally shot by another deputy. The unidentified man came to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office around 10:30 p.m. looking for some help, and deputies let him inside the building and gave him water, investigators told FOX5 Atlanta. The man was allowed to use the restroom in the lobby and then called 911, claiming to dispatchers that he had been poisoned, the station reported.When officers went to check on him, police said, he became “combative.”...

    Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel welcomed an offer to have Florida state police help guard the entrances and exits to the school after one of his deputies was found asleep on the job Tuesday. (Photo: BCSO)A deputy assigned to secure Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida has been suspended after he was spotted taking a nap in his car. The school, site of a shooting that left 17 dead last month, has upped its security as students and staff return to campus and the deputy believed to be asleep, Moises Carotti, was part of that effort. A Broward...

    The Florida sheriff’s deputy who did nothing as a killer stalked the halls of Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS spoke out for the first time Monday, saying he’s not a coward, according to a report. Deputy Scot Peterson — who resigned in disgrace from his position as a school resource officer last week — said through a lawyer that he believed the shooter was outside the high school and that protocol demanded he “seek cover,” according to the Miami Herald. “[He] heard gunshots but believed those gunshots were originating from outside of the buildings on the school campus,” his Fort Lauderdale-based...

    The local sheriff’s office received at least 18 calls about Florida school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz over the past decade — including warnings that were passed on to the disgraced school deputy who failed to stop the massacre, according to a damning new report. Records of calls about Cruz to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office reveal that in February 2016, neighbors called to say they feared he “planned to shoot up the school” after posing for Instagram photos with firearms, USA Today reports. The information was passed on to the sheriff’s on-site officer at Stoneman Douglas High School, Deputy Scot...

    When Coral Springs police officers arrived at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on February 14 in the midst of the school shooting crisis, many officers were surprised to find not only that Broward County Sheriff's Deputy Scot Peterson, the armed school resource officer, had not entered the building, but that three other Broward County Sheriff's deputies were also outside the school and had not entered, Coral Springs sources tell CNN. The deputies had their pistols drawn and were behind their vehicles, the sources said, and not one of them had gone into the school.

    Sgt. Aaron Thompson was the first to arrive and "made the personal decision" not to wait for the dive team. He quickly removed his police gear, and punched through the ice to make a pathway to the boy, who was struggling in the icy water about 25 feet away from the shore, the release states. “Sergeant Thompson used his arms to punch through the ice, creating a pathway to the victim. Thompson was able to locate the victim under the ice and bring him back to shore where awaiting medical personnel began treating him," Lt. Crouse explained in a statement....

    Department of Justice Assoc. Deputy Attorney General Bruce G Ohr was demoted because he had working relationships with dossier author Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS; and -more importantly or perhaps ‘conveniently’- according to James Rosen, Bruce Ohr did not reveal his October 2016 contacts with MI6 agent Steele or Glenn Simpson (Fusion-GPS) to DOJ leadership. However, the ongoing Dossier story gets far more intriguing as it is now discovered that Bruce G Ohr’s wife, Nellie H. Ohr, actually worked for Fusion GPS and likely helped guide/script the Russian Dossier. But wait, it doesn’t stop there… Mrs. Nellie Ohr was not...

However, Carter says for 12 years he has loved the excitement and opportunities to serve his community as a law enforcement officer.

I'll wear the star and come to the aid of our embattled police. That's how it was done in the old west, that's how it should be done again.

    But in Florida, a 4-year deputy being honored by Mothers Against Drunk Driving for making more than 100 DUI arrests was too intoxicated to pick up his award. Pinellas County deputy Michael Szeliga arrived at a statewide police training event "ready to party," according to WFLA. Szeliga, who allegedly packed a bottle of liquor for the 2-day training event in Fort Lauderdale, was described as “staggeringly drunk” by a witness at the Friday night banquet where he was slated to receive the MADD award. A 274-page report on the deputy’s behavior indicates he and two other officers went to the...
