  • Third Video Shows ‘Questionable Activity’ by Police, and Baltimore Drops More Cases

    The New York Times ^ | 22 Aug 2017 | Jacey Fortin
    For the third time in about a month, body-camera video showing “questionable activity” by Baltimore police officers has prompted state prosecutors to dismiss or postpone dozens of criminal cases, the Baltimore City state’s attorney’s office said in a statement this week. The state attorney’s office did not describe what was captured in this latest video. But it said the footage was brought to the attention of the office by the Baltimore Police Department on Aug. 2 and “was self-reported as a re-enactment of the seizure of evidence.” State attorneys referred the matter to the Police Department’s internal affairs division. T.J....

    The story is being told on YourNewsWire.com and other sources: “A Charlottesville police officer has come forward to express his anger at being told to “stand down” by the city mayor during violent clashes between protestors. He also claims the protests, which pitched “white supremacists” against members of Antifa, were “set up” to further the agenda of the elites. “We [Charlotesville police] were ordered to bring the rival groups together. As soon as they were in contact with each other, we were told to stand down. It was outrageous. We weren’t allowed to arrest anyone without asking the mayor first....
  • Boston ‘antifa’ group lists pro-police symbol with hate symbols

    The New York Post ^ | August 21, 2017 | Larry Celona and Gabrielle Fonrouge
    The Boston “antifa” group lumped the thin blue line pro-police symbol with a list of white nationalist, neo-nazi and alt-right logos, enraged NYPD union officials said Monday. The thin blue line symbol is used to show support for law enforcement and commemorate fallen members who died in the line of duty and has become a symbol of police pride across the country and abroad. However, during the antifa protests in Boston over the weekend, it was shown on one of their posters as a symbol of hate to watch out for, next to images of an alt-right flag and a...

    LOS ANGELES— A reputed gang member who beat a murder charge decades ago and went on to land a job as a police officer was convicted Thursday of the 30-year-old killing after DNA evidence put him at the crime scene. Pierre Romain, 53, was convicted in Los Angeles Superior Court of first-degree murder for a botched carjacking outside a Hollywood nightclub in June 1987. Romain was trying to steal a customized 1984 Nissan 300 ZX that was identical to a friend's car he had recently crashed, police said. He fatally shot Jade Clark behind the wheel of the car and...

    Several times since yesterday, CNN has presented viewers with dash cam video showing a police officer beating a black motorist because the motorist allegedly resisted arrest. But, just over a week ago, CNN showed no interest when video was released of a black police officer being shot and seriously injured by a suspect who was just recently convicted of attempted murder. CBS Highlights Video of Police Officer Being Shot by SuspectWhile CNN was ignoring the report, ABC, CBS, and NBC all gave some level attention to the attack on the officer. On Thursday, August 11, ABC's World News Tonight ran...
  • Trump Administration Moves to Expand Deportation Dragnet to Jails

    NY Times ^ | Aug 21, 2017 | CAITLIN DICKERSON
    The Trump administration is working with like-minded sheriffs from around the country on a plan to channel undocumented immigrants from local jails into federal detention, according to several sheriffs involved in the discussions. If it succeeds, it could vastly expand the dragnet that has already begun to transform immigration enforcement in the United States. The plan is intended to circumvent court decisions that have thus far limited the role of local law enforcement in immigration. It involves a legal move regarding detainers, which are requests by Immigration and Customs Enforcement to local sheriffs or police departments to hold people who...

    The media just can’t stop lying about President Trump’s views on racism and hatred. The media has been awash in praise for the joint statement that former presidents George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush put out on Wednesday concerning the violence in Charlottesville. The statement was viewed as a rebuke of Trump’s statements. The Dallas Morning News headline said, “Former presidents Bush rebuke Trump's neo-Nazi stance.” The New York Times called it “a rare joint rebuke of Mr. Trump.” The New York Times praised George W. Bush for leading the condemnation of former KKK leader David Duke in 1991,...

    Lost amidst all the mainstream media furor over what President Trump said about the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, when he said it, and who he condemned is any real analysis on their part about why that violence occurred in the first place. Specifically why were the state and local police ordered to stand down, allowing the white nationalists and Antifa groups to clash.Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe claimed that the state police were ordered to stand down because of stashed  weapons caches around Charlottesville and because militiamen on the scene were better armed than the police. An investigation (something the MSM...

    The mainstream media was in an uproar over President Trump’s statement, claiming that he was creating a false equivalence between right-wing extremists and those counter-protesting. However, Trump’s statement is consistent with local police reports. “We were hoping that it would not elevate to this level of the violence that we witnessed amongst the participants in the crowds, on all sides. They were throwing bottles, they were throwing soda cans with cement in them,” said a Virginia police spokesperson, according to The Independent Journal Review.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UshUxz7Lt0w

(NEWSPLEX) -- In the days since the violence of the Aug. 12 Unite the Right rally, anger has mounted, some of it directed at the civil rights organizations that represented rally organizer Jason Kessler in his legal fight to keep the rally in Emancipation Park. The Rutherford Institute founder John Whitehead said he doesn't regret taking the case and notes that it's about defending the First Amendment, not supporting the mission of the rally.

I will explain in detail the facts of what happenedOne does not need to support any of the positions of the alt-right to be concerned about what this means about the state of free speech in America.This is Lee Park in Charlottesville, as it was laid out for Saturday’s rally. The red lines indicate the position of metal barriers. The rally had a legally...

    The dashcam video was recorded two years ago, but Charnesia Corley said she still feels the pain of what happened that night. She said Harris County deputies pulled her over in northwest Harris County for running a red light, but when the officer approached her car he said he smelled marijuana, according to Corley. Corley was handcuffed as a female officer patted her down and then removed her pants and began what she called an invasive and humiliating strip search. "She tells me, 'Just bend over.' I hesitate ... She shines light on me ... She proceeds to stick her...

    Who gave the Charlottesville police the stand down order that lead to the death of one person over weekend? That question still has yet to be answered. Was it’ the far left mayor or Clinton lackey and Governor of Virginia Terry Mcauliffe? Could Heather D. Heyer still be alive today if police weren’t given a stand down order and let the white supremacists and terrorist liberals riot? There are some reports, some of the AntiFa and BLM terrorist hit the driver of the car with a baseball bat. That doesn’t excuse him for what he did. But if people were...

    The driver of the Charlottesville vehicle, which killed Heather Heyer and injured 19 others, was Alex James Fields. He was a supporter of Hillary Clinton and a member of Antifa funded by George Soros. He was only 20 years of age and lived in Maumee, Ohio. George Soros used him to further his movement to destroy the United States. Al Americans, Left and Right, need to understand exactly what this evil man is doing to this Country. He is using two political parties to divide the US; ultimately starting a civil war that will crush the United States of America....

IMHO, this cute little gig, set-up and planned by Democrat, McAuliffe and his buddy Mayor and assistant Mayor in Charlottesville did not go off as planned, because the police were setup to fail with the orders issued by the Governor and his two Mayors. Results, three people murdered, multiple people injured while extreme Right wing & Left wing nutcases tried to kill each other, uncontrolled...
