    Police allegedly shot dead a deaf man outside his front door as he tried to communicate with them in sign language. Officers in North Carolina had attempted to pull over 29-year-old Daniel Harris last Thursday for speeding, according to NBC. But instead of slowing down, Mr Harris continued on his way home. One witness reported Mr Harris was then shot and killed "almost immediately" after exiting his vehicle". The witness said it appeared the victim had attempted to communicate with an officer via sign language when he was fired on outside of his home.

    This year, Aurora City Council doled out $864,239 in nexus funds among five nonprofits, awarding the most money to nonprofits identified by Aurora police as the most helpful to law enforcement. Aurora nonprofits that receive funding through the city’s “nexus” program dodged a legislative bullet this year, but that won’t prevent city lawmakers from taking a closer look at how the money is being spent. Six nonprofit groups in Aurora receiving money from photo red-light enforcement were relieved after Gov. John Hickenlooper vetoed legislation this year that would have created a statewide ban on the cameras. But how that money...

    San Jose, California disgraced itself last week, allowing rioters to attack people exiting a political rally for the presumptive Republican nominee for president. Now, thanks to Aleister of Gateway Pundit, we know that the police chief of that city, Eddie Garcia, who admitted that he instructed his officers not to intervene and arrest the attackers, is aligned with an extremist race-based group, La Raza (Spanish for “The Race”)

    The woman who captured national attention Thursday night after she was egged at a Donald Trump rally – and then smiled about it – is asking for people to help oust the mayor of San Jose. Rachel Casey, identified by her Facebook posts, LinkedIn profile and by people who know her, posted one of at least two petitions to get Mayor Sam Liccardo to resign from his post. As of Monday, one petition, started by a man in Texas, had 3,600 supporters. Another petition, started by a man in Minnesota, also asks for the mayor’s resignation, and had more than...

    Perhaps realizing initial statements gave short shrift to the violent episodes outside of Donald Trump’s rally Thursday night at the San Jose Convention Center, both Mayor Sam Liccardo and the San Jose police released additional comments Friday. SJPD initially limited its release of information regarding the violent clashes to noting an officer was assaulted and a “few” people were arrested. Liccardo commended police in his original statement, but seemed to have it both ways in blaming Trump and the people who participated in assaults taking place in the streets following the rally. In an email blast Friday morning, Liccardo came...

    “It’s a sad situation,” Brown says. “She needs to be off of the street.” Within a year of Brown’s incident, two more serious cases were made against the officer. In one, an off-duty Morsi Murphy called 9-1-1 to report a man robbing a 7-Eleven convenience store when he was just buying snacks. “I see a knife,” Murphy told a 911 operator. But 7-Eleven surveillance footage shows there was no robbery and no knife. Murphy did not even seem clear on who she claimed robbed the store.

    On the second day of her dream vacation on exclusive Bald Head Island, Julie Mall went with her family to the beach to catch the sunset. Her 11-year-old son asked to drive the golf cart back to their $1,000-a-day rented cottage. It was dusk, no traffic on the path and his father would sit next to him. A two-block, 30-second ride. She said sure. What could go wrong? In the next four hours, Mall says she was pinned to the ground by police, repeatedly accused of being drunk, frogmarched barefoot aboard a ferry in handcuffs, jailed in leg irons and...

    The head of the city’s sergeants union accused Police Commissioner Bill Bratton of hypocrisy Sunday and called for his resignation. “What I am seeing on a regular basis now in the NYPD lately is, it’s a ‘do as I say, not as I do’ attitude, and this is coming directly from Commissioner Bratton,” Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins said on John Catsimatidis’s radio show on AM 970. […] The union chief complained that everyone in the department was aware of ticket-fixing before that scandal broke and that it was part of the culture — but now that it has...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Mayor Emanuel will abolish the city’s troubled Independent Police Review Authority. For months, the mayor has been criticized for how the city investigates excessive force allegations against Chicago police. In an op-ed piece that’s expected to appear in Sunday’s Sun-Times, the mayor says the city would replace the agency with a civilian agency that has more independence and more resources to do its work. “My goal is to bring safety to every community, through building trust in our police department,” Emanuel said.

Around a bend she says she saw a squad car speeding towards her without...
