    An Orange County sheriff’s deputy has been accused of firing two shots into a fleeing vehicle that he had tailgated and tried to block while off duty Monday. William Pine, 49, of Brookfield now faces two counts of attempted aggravated assault. He serves as a deputy for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, according to the Vermont State Police. He has been placed on administrative leave, according to the department. State police said the incident occurred in Williamstown at about 7:45 p.m. Monday. Two men — 41-year-old Kevin Goodale of Brookfield and 37-year-old Nathan Lyonnais of Barton — told troopers they...

    The Minneapolis police union is selling "Cops for Trump" T-shirts after the police department banned officers from wearing their uniforms in support of candidates at political events or in ads. The Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis has accused police administrators of instituting the new policy just days before President Donald Trump's visit to Minneapolis. Union chief Bob Kroll says a lot of officers want to go to Thursday's rally wearing their uniforms because Trump is a "very pro-law enforcement president." The Star Tribune reports the police department denies the new policy has anything to do with politics and says it's...

    Donald Trump’s presidency can often feel like an inevitable catastrophe that gets easier and easier to become desensitized to and disengaged from. Trump has successfully deconstructed and rendered irrelevant the traditional neoliberal niceties that have conveniently shielded this country from confronting its history, and continued practice, of structural violence: Trump is an indecent man who has lived an indecent life, and runs the country in accordance with this indecency — yet, unlike his predecessors, he makes no attempt to hide his amorality, and we make no attempt to remain shocked and horrified by his cruelty. The ongoing detention of innumerable...

Cellphone video shot from within a home on Cabazon Court begins as the man identified as Young is slugging Forsberg in the head. As Young forces Forsberg to the ground, a female bystander can be seen nearby. Young struggles with the deputy on the ground and...
  • Whoa: Massachusetts Newspaper Drags Warren Through The Wringer For Attacking Law Enforcement

    The Boston Herald on Friday penned an editorial blasting Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) for her repeated attacks on law enforcement. The editorial board recounted numerous instances Sen. Warren went after Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and police officers for enforcing our rule of law. Specifically, the Herald cited an incident that took place in Boston: Last year it was ICE she targeted for expulsion, saying that it should be replaced with “something that reflects our morality.” She bellowed to a boisterous Boston City Hall Plaza crowd that, “This is about children held in cages. This is about babies scattered all across this country.”That...

    Members of Antifa are violent yet they hide behind this so called "peaceful" mentality. They act like they're hippies who come together, sit in a park and hold hands. We all know it's the furthest thing from the truth. Whenever they get together en masse, they cover their faces like cowards, yell obscenities, throw things and hit anyone who disagrees with them. Look at what happened to conservative journalist Andy Ngo. And he was merely reporting on what happened when he was repeatedly hit and had cement-filled milkshakes hurled at him. He suffered a brain hemorrhage as a result of the...

    A new report from ABC News has revealed that, in at least 36 criminal cases, Trump's name was invoked in connection with violence, assault, or the threat of violence. "In nine cases, perpetrators hailed Trump in the midst or immediate aftermath of physically attacking innocent victims," the outlet reported on Tuesday. In 10 cases, perpetrators of violence "cheered or defended Trump," while in another 10 cases "Trump and his rhetoric were cited in court to explain a defendant's violent or threatening behavior." .....

    As the former chief executive and elected Sheriff in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I always demanded professional conduct from my officers. It is crucial for the public to have trust and confidence in their law enforcement agencies. I stressed excellence—not perfection. It is important to realize that we are dealing with human beings and thus, the imperfection of the human condition. Like in any aspect of life, people are always going to fall short of what we expect. Your kids, even your spouse, will let you down at times. When in a position of trust like policing, a higher standard is warranted—so...

    Stand by for the incoming lawsuits. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is rolling out a new program this week that was requested by various sheriffs’ departments and other local law enforcement agencies around the country. What they’re doing is setting up a system whereby local law enforcement will be able to gain the legal ability to execute arrest warrants for illegal aliens, even if they are in “sanctuary” areas with state or local rules prohibiting them from cooperating. Known as the Warrant Service Officer (WSO) program, eligible local LEOs will be able to receive training and enter into a partnership...
  • There’s Something On These Secret Police Tapes That Pete Buttigieg Doesn’t Want Released

    South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is officially a candidate for the 2020 Democratic nomination. You wouldn’t think that a mayor of a small city would be in contention, but he’s at the top. His star has been rising since rumblings of his campaign moves were reported. He raised more money than better-known progressives, like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). He’s in the top five in terms of those filling their war chests. He’s apparently been well received in Iowa. So, with the 2020 Democratic clown car getting bigger, how do you thin the heard? Well, you attack and it seems the opposition...

I took her with me to look and the realized that a man was behind us, about ten feet away. He was about 27-31 years...
