    A man who was arrested Monday in Washington, D.C. allegedly traveled to the nation’s capital to kill “all white police” at the White House. Michael Arega, of Dallas, Texas, was arrested Monday afternoon after the Secret Service Protective Intelligence Division received an alert just before 3 p.m. from the Montgomery County Maryland Police Department to be on the lookout for Arega. He reportedly traveled from Texas to kill “all white police” at the White House, according to a statement from the U.S. Secret Service.

  • Hammond girl aims to hug police officers in all 50 states

    In a country that often seems more divided than united, it might be the little things -- nods, smiles, hugs -- that make all the difference. For 7-year-old Hammond resident Rosalyn Baldwin, it's exactly those token actions that set a meaningful tone of healing and gratitude. In an effort to show respect and appreciation to law enforcement professionals -- a group that's increasingly facing scrutiny and, in some quarters, outright disrespect -- young Baldwin aims to set the record straight. Her mission? To hug an officer in every U.S. state. She began by giving bear hugs to her local police...

    Leaders from three West Side gang factions allegedly met last week to discuss plans to shoot members of the Chicago Police Department in response to the fatal police shooting of Paul O’Neal. The meeting took place Thursday between higher-ups from the Vice Lords, Black Disciples and Four Corner Hustlers, according to an alert issued to department members the day after the meeting. The Four Corner Hustlers “provided guns” and have “a sniper in place” though authorities do not know where, according to the alert. The Four Corner Hustlers also are supplying the other two gangs with automatic weapons, which all...

    Oh no. It's not Barack Obama is getting police officers killed. He is doing it recklessly and irresponsibly. No, he is not the one pulling the trigger. But as president of the United States - an office whose power and prestige he has never understood and certainly not respected the need to wield carefully - he is giving legitimacy to the narrative that police officers, not just a few individual bad apples but on a systemic basis, are out there looking to kill black people.

    Two snipers have shot 11 police officers - killing at least four - and may have planted a bomb in downtown Dallas. The two gunmen opened fire from 'elevated positions', picking off officers 'ambush style' as they manned a protest over the deaths of two black men, police chief David Brown said. A gruesome video shows a heroic policeman taking on one of gunmen, but being gunned down by the shooter before being shot again execution-style, from point-blank range. Both suspects have been caught and taken into custody, with one detained following a shootout with police. As they were detained,...

    New York City’s cops say the town is in trouble – big trouble. The Patrolmen's Benevolent Association of the City of New York commissioned a survey of 6000 of its members and their opinions are sharply at odds with the rosy picture being projected by Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio. In part its findings were, “The overall survey results show that members believe the relationship with the public and elected officials has worsened in the past few years, with a lack of support and respect for police officers the top reason cited. Members also expressed they personally feel 'less safe'...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz admonished the Obama administration's interactions with law enforcement as creating a culture where police officers feel under attack. Cruz chaired a Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing on Tuesday titled, "The war on police: How the federal government undermines state and local law enforcement." While Cruz was back in Washington, D.C., on official business, the senator wasted little time using the heated rhetoric he vents from the stump on the campaign trail. "Everyone here agrees that we should enforce the law and we should vigorously enforce America's civil rights laws. In any government organization, there can be bad...

    As I read the USA Today March 21, 2015 news report, “Police departments hiring immigrants as officers” I realized that my late father was, once again, correct. He used to say, “Nothing is so good it could not be better or so bad it could not get worse.” Hard as it is to imagine, things have gotten worse — much, much worse. Here is an excerpt from the USA Today article: At a time when 25,000 non-U.S. citizens are serving in the U.S. military, some feel it’s time for more police and sheriff departments to do the same. That’s why...

    The Mexican armed forces have arrested 35 police officers accused of having links with one of the country's most powerful drug cartels, the Zetas. The officers were arrested in operations in the eastern states of San Luis Potosi and Veracruz. A turf war between the Zetas and rival criminal organisations in Veracruz has led to some of Mexico's worst massacres in recent years. Local police officers are often accused of ties with the drug cartels. In a statement, the Navy said the 35 people arrested "were all police officers in the Veracruz public security department and allegedly collaborated with the...

    ... Never before have so many of the unemployed owed their job loss, not indirectly at all, but quite obviously directly, to the intentional, conscious directives of their president and his direct appointees, the czars and cabinet secretaries who have launched a direct frontal assault on industry after industry ever since their appointments. Consider: Car Dealers: In 2009, though everyone knew that the problems dooming Chrysler and General Motors were their enormous property and property tax obligations caused by too big, too old, factories, and their utterly unsupportable labor and pension costs, Barack Obama ordered the closure of over 3000...

    The nation was stunned by the senseless and savage cold-blooded murders of four young police officers in Lakewood, Wash., over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Whenever a police officer or soldier is killed, the loss is even more profound, for they are the ones who stand between our way of life and total anarchy. Nine years ago, the name Maurice Clemmons crossed my desk. I commuted his sentence from 108 years to 47 years. I take full responsibility for my actions of nine years ago. I acted on the facts presented to me in 2000. If I could have possibly known...

    The left's police-hating chickens are coming home to roost. While partisan liberals have gone out of their way to blame conservative media and the Tea Party movement for creating a "climate of hate," they are silent on the cultural and literal war on cops that has raged for decades -- and escalated tragically this year. The total number of law enforcement officers shot and killed this year is up 19 percent over last year, according to the Christian Science Monitor. More officers have died in ambush incidents this year than in any other since 2000. The Lakewood, Wash., massacre on...

    PARKLAND, Wash. - Four police officers were shot and killed in a Sunday morning ambush at a Parkland-area coffee shop, officials said. Pierce County Sheriff's Office spokesman Ed Troyer called the ambush "a targeted attack." Officials at the scene said two gunmen burst into the Forza Coffee Co. outlet at 11401 Steele St. South, shot the four uniformed officers as they were working on their laptop computers, then fled the scene. Other customers were inside the coffee shop at the time of the attack, but none of them were shot or injured. A $10,000 reward is being offered for any...
