    Body camera video released Friday by Fullerton police shows that the 17-year-old girl killed in a police shooting on an Anaheim freeway had exited her vehicle and was holding a fake gun, according to police. Hannah Williams can only briefly be seen outside the gray rental SUV she was in before she's shot on the eastbound 91 Freeway near Kramer Boulevard on July 5. Fullerton police say the replica Beretta later found near her body can be seen in her hands, pointed at the officer. The bodycam's audio was not activated when the officer opened fire, so it's unclear exactly...

    Jersey Journal ^ | July 4, 2019
    Whenever a member of law enforcement shoots his or her gun, the public needs to be kept informed. When three officers open fire on a city street outside a public housing complex, striking two men, cars and an occupied home, that need to be informed multiplies exponentially. And beyond that, the public also needs to be assured by city leaders that their safety and concerns matter. Despite calls from members of the community for him to address what happened, Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop has been silent on the police shooting Monday night that left a 19-year-old and a 21-year-old...

    A Hoover police officer was justified in fatally shooting Emantic Fitzgerald “EJ” Bradford Jr. Thanksgiving night inside the Riverchase Galleria, state officials announced today. Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall today shared a report following a more than two-month investigation into 21-year-old Bradford’s death. The report also detailed the investigation into the gunfire inside the mall that injured 18-year-old Brian Wilson and 12-year-old bystander Molly Davis moments before Hoover police killed Bradford. Erron Brown, 20, is charged with attempted murder in the shooting of Wilson.

    The Root ^ | 2018-11-12 | Natalie Degraffinried
    The headline should have been: “Security Guard Apprehends Shooter and Saves Lives.” Instead, it’s another case of the police shooting and killing an innocent black man. Eyewitnesses say that at Manny’s Blue Room Bar in Robbins, [Cook County, Chicago] Ill., security told a group of intoxicated men they had to leave. One of the men returned armed, at which point shots were exchanged between them and armed security guards. One of the guards, Jemel Roberson, 26, managed to restrain one of the gunmen. From WGN9: “He had somebody on the ground with his knee in back with his gun in...

    Mayor Mike Rawlings said Saturday that he’s sure justice will be served for Botham Shem Jean. Jean, 26, was killed in his own apartment on Thursday night by an off-duty, uniformed Dallas Police officer who said she mistook Jean’s apartment for her own when she got off work at about 10 p.m. Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall said yesterday “at my request, we are in the process of obtaining a warrant based on the circumstances we have now.” She later added the warrant would be for manslaughter.

    Will anyone in Chicago be embarrassed by this? Will any of the perpetually and professionally outraged say, “Gosh, maybe we were too quick to judge”? Will any of them look at the police body camera footage and say, “Yes, the guy had a gun and was trying to pull it out on the officers, so they had to shoot him”? When Michael Brown was shot and killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., nearly four years ago, the fable quickly spread that he had presented no threat, that he had said to the officer, “Hands up, don’t shoot” just...

    Chicago police released body camera video on Sunday of the fatal police shooting of 37-year-old Harith Augustus, which sparked a night of protests in the South Shore neighborhood. Supt. Eddie Johnson said he made the decision to release the video "because the community needs some answers and they need it now." He said he wanted to clear up misinformation about the shooting. After the shooting, crowds gathered near where the shooting occurred Saturday evening at 71st Street and Clyde Avenue. Four police officers injured and four protesters arrested. Protesters threw rocks and bottles at police officers and jumped on squad...

    Authorities say a 16-year-old male is dead after an officer-involved shooting in Chanhassen Friday morning. The Carver County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 6400 block of Oriole Ave. after a woman called 911 saying her son was suicidal and threatening her with knives and a baseball bat. When authorities arrived, they encountered the boy and deployed a Taser. At one point during the encounter, two sheriff’s deputies fired their weapons, hitting the boy. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities say one sheriff’s deputy was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries, treated and released. The BCA is...

    I am flabbergasted at the extent of fake news. I am listening to ABC news on WMAL in Washington D.C. They begin to "report" about the latest development in what they referred to as "the Minneapolis police shooting."Here's what they proceeded to describe: "The officers involved in the shooting failed to turn on their mobile cameras and so there is no video record of the shooting. However, after the shooting the officers were both involved in administering life saving measures."

    The FBI is investigating the stabbing of a police officer at Flint, Michigan's Bishop Airport as a 'possible act of terror'. A Canadian man yelling 'Allahu Akbar' repeatedly stabbed the officer including in the neck at the airport on Wednesday morning. The saying means 'God is great' in Arabic, and is often shouted by Islamic terrorists before attacks or suicide bombings. The police officer involved in the incident has been identified as Lieutenant Jeff Neville, who is retired from the Genesee County Sheriff's Department. Sources told WJRT that Neville was at his post at the top of a set of...

    An armed man pulled over after riding a dirt bike in North Philadelphia was shot and killed by a police officer during a confrontation Thursday evening, officials said, with surveillance video showing the officer shot the man while he was running away. "It was a very violent encounter," Police Commissioner Richard Ross said. The explosive scene evolved around 6:40 p.m. on the 4100 block of Whitaker Avenue near the southern edge of the Feltonville neighborhood when an officer transporting people to the Special Victims Unit saw the dirt bike rider driving erratically and stopped to tell the man to stop,...

    Watts up with that? ^ | 18 July, 2016 | Willis Eschenbach
    First, there were 990 fatal police shootings in 2015. How does this compare to other causes of death? Well, I can’t tell you because so few people are killed by police. The number is so small that it is outside the range of the usual mortality lists. I can say that death by police is not in the top fifty causes of death in the US, so it is relatively rare. It is extremely rare for women, because the overwhelming majority of those killed by police were men. And I would be greatly remiss if I did not highlight that...

White-cops-shoot-unarmed-black-man? Don’t think so. As the video below demonstrates, the media caused all this.

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Wednesday that he was troubled by the controversial shooting of Terence Crutcher, 40, by Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby last Friday because he looked like he did "everything he was supposed to do" but was killed anyway. "I must tell you I watched the shooting in particular in Tulsa and that man was hands up. That man went to the car, hands up, put his hands on the car, I mean to me it looked like he did everything he was supposed to do," said Trump in remarks at a town hall style event...

    A day after police in Oklahoma released video that shows a white Tulsa police officer fatally shooting an unarmed black man, attorneys representing the slain man’s family released photos that they said contradict a key claim in authorities’ version of events. At a news conference Tuesday afternoon, Benjamin Crump — a civil rights lawyer who has represented many families of those killed in high-profile police shootings — said Terence Crutcher never reached his hands into the driver’s side window of his stalled sport-utility vehicle before he was shot by police. Crutcher couldn’t have reached into the vehicle, Crump said, because...

    An Indianapolis man who was mistakenly shot by a police officer responding to an armed robbery said Friday that he didn't know officers had arrived at his home until he was blinded by their flashlights after being shot. Carl Williams, a 48-year-old postal worker, said at a news conference that he was in his garage with his handgun at his right side early Tuesday awaiting police when he was shot, apparently just as officers were arriving.

The officer, identified as John Johnston, responded about 8 a.m. to take a report. As the officer and one of the clerks were reviewing surveillance footage in an office, the man returned...
