    Boston police gang unit Officer Patrick Curtin had no idea he was being shot until the leg he wedged into the front door of Requon Remy Martin’s South End apartment building began to burn, according to a police report. Boston Municipal Court Judge James M. Stanton yesterday ordered Martin, 21, and his co-defendant Antoine Mack, 35, of Pawtucket, R.I., held without bail at the request of assistant Suffolk District Attorney Montez Haywood after they pleaded not guilty to armed assault with intent to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and multiple firearm charges.

    The chief of police in Montgomery County, Md., says his officers are not looking into sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, appearing to contradict a local news report that "investigators" were looking at a potential second high school misconduct allegation. "I have spoken with my chief of detectives, and neither of us have any knowledge of anyone coming forward to us to report any allegations involving Judge Kavanaugh," police Chief J. Thomas Manger told the Washington Examiner in an email. The Montgomery County Sentinel reported Monday that "Montgomery County investigators" were "looking at" a " potential second...

    DISTRICT HEIGHTS, Md. -- Two Maryland police officers were shot while serving a drug-related search warrant at the wrong apartment late Wednesday, according to law enforcement officials.

No criminal charges will be filed against the man, Prince George's County Police Chief Hank Stawinski said Thursday. Stawinski apologized for the error and said he has halted executing search warrants until the department reviews its procedures, news outlets reported. "The individual that we are targeting does not live at that address ... a...

The puppy section was followed by a line of uniformed men walking adult golden retrievers and labradors, which all wore little boots. The dogs belong to the Canine Unit of the Carabineros de Chile, the country's national police force.

    The long-awaited murder trial of Chicago police Officer Jason Van Dyke continued Tuesday with key testimony from Van Dyke’s partner and other eyewitnesses in a racially fraught case that has roiled the city for nearly three years. Here are five takeaways from the second day of the trial: 4. " In a setback for the prosecution, Judge Vincent Gaughan tossed out the entire testimony of one prosecution witness. FBI forensic examiner Mark Messick made a slowed-down version of the dashcam video with arrows pointing to where he believed the bullets hit. But later he said on the stand he was...

    Police say a career criminal ripped off a downtown Seattle Target store three times in four days, even after being arrested and released for his crimes. Surveillance video from August allegedly shows 41-year-old Jason Lewis confronting sales workers on the electronics floor of the department store. At one point, he head bumps an employee. The terrorized employees left him alone after that. Lewis then destroyed display cases and grabbed as many electronics as he could over 15 minutes. “He then begins to push over and drags store displays and he uses one as a weapon, swinging it like a sled...

    Former Minneapolis cop's behavior before shooting death of Australian woman raised concerns, court filings say. (Full title). ... The former Minneapolis police officer charged in the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond once put a gun to a driver’s head during a traffic stop and sometimes ignored calls, according to court filings indicating that psychiatrists and training officers voiced concerns about his fitness for duty. The revelations surfaced after defense attorneys filed a motion Wednesday seeking to dismiss murder and manslaughter charges against Mohamed Noor, who is accused of shooting Damond in July 2017 after she dialed 911 to report...

    Yesterday I wrote a piece that’s gone viral — an extended denunciation of a terrible police shooting in Texas. A white officer went to black man’s apartment, apparently thinking it was her own. When she saw the man in the darkness, she claimed she thought he was a burglar. She shot him and killed him. It’s a horrifying story, and it’s not the only terrible police shooting to shock the American conscience. Whenever I write about police shootings, I get a similar critique. New readers will Google me and find that I’ve been strongly critical of Black Lives Matter. Yet...

    Amber Guyger’s killing of Botham Shem Jean is an unspeakable tragedy. It also highlights the need for officers like Guyger to face impartial justice. It is hard to think of a more tragic, more senseless shooting in America than the killing last week of Botham Shem Jean, a young black risk-assurance associate at PricewaterhouseCoopers, and a member of Dallas West Church of Christ. This is what we know so far. Jean was home alone in his apartment in the South Side Flats complexin Dallas when police officer Amber Guyger entered and shot him dead. The precise chain of events is...

    A food truck owner in Detroit, Michigan reportedly said she won’t serve police officers or other law enforcement officials because she, along with the “majority” of her customers, “do not feel safe around law enforcement agents.” The owner of Rocky’s Road Brew, Rocky Coronado, wrote in a now-deleted Facebook post on Friday that she is “well within [her] rights to refuse service to law enforcement agents,” such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement and local police officers. The truck owner detailed in a separate post that she turned away two officers on Friday who were “in a unmarked, black suburban with...

    Image from the CBC Canada's leftist government is considering a complete ban on handguns, similar to the one that exists in England.  It is a precise example of the "slippery slope" that United States supporters of the Second Amendment say they wish to avoid. Canada instituted mandatory registration of handguns in 1934. In  the entire history of the Canadian handgun registration, not one case has been found where the handgun registry solved or prevented a crime of violence. In 1993, Canada outlawed about half of the handguns on the handgun registry. The police in Toronto do not believe a...

    The officer who killed a man in his apartment Thursday after she apparently mistook it for her own home also shot a suspect during an arrest in 2017. Officer Amber Guyger has not been officially named in connection with the shooting, but a source within the Dallas Police Department has identified her. Guyger, who has been with the department almost five years, was not indicted in the 2017 shooting of the suspect who had taken her Taser from her during a struggle. She is expected to face a manslaughter charge for killing 26-year-old Botham Jean on Thursday, but a warrant...
