    Schools in Logan, Oh., were forced into a lockdown Thursday due to protests, confirmed the Marietta Times. These protests were spurred by an incident that occurred Wednesday, in which a woman watching a middle school football game got tasered by a school resource officer for not wearing a mask. These protests were in support of the officer’s actions. The woman, Alecia Kitts, was watching her son’s game in the bleachers with her mother, who was also not wearing a mask, says The Marietta Times. The two were approached by the school’s assistant principal, Adam Twiss, to comply with the mandatory...

    Alecia Kitts traveled to see her son play football in Logan, Ohio. Footage shows her seated with her family at the proper social distance from other families without a mask on.

According to Tiffany Kennedy, the woman who shot the above video, Kitts had not been warned for...

    An attorney for the former Atlanta police officer charged in the fatal shooting of Rayshard Brooks filed a motion Monday seeking Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard’s recusal from the case, the Atlanta Courier Journal reported. Noah Pines reportedly said Howard’s statements to the public on the slaying last month have been “ethically inappropriate.” “Paul Howard has systematically sought to deprive Garrett Rolfe of a fair trial and impartial jury since the day he announced his decision to arrest Garrett Rolfe,” the defense motion states, according to the newspaper. Pines also said that Howard will be called by the defense...

    You’ll be hearing a lot of talk about the shooting of Rayshard Brooks by an Atlanta police officer now that the city’s district attorney has filed 11 charges against Ofc. Garrett Rolfe, including felony murder. But perhaps it’s worth hearing what Burke County, Ga., Sheriff Alfonzo Williams has to say. He has, after all, run three law enforcement departments, so he knows a thing or two. “This is the third law enforcement agency I’ve been head of,” Williams, who is black, told CNN. “Every agency I’ve gone to, I’ve required every officer who carries a Taser to be Tased with...

    The man who shot at police with a taser he stole from the police and then was shot dead by the police may not be the saint the mainstream media is attempting to make him out to be. Not only did Rayshard Brooks get in a struggle with police, steal their taser, run from the police and shoot the taser at the police, he was likely running due to the high risk that he would be going to prison based on his prior record.The mainstream media attempted to shine a positive light on Rayshard Brooks, who was gunned down in...

    On July 27, 2017, Johnny Wheatcroft was a passenger in a silver Ford Taurus when a pair of Glendale police officers pulled in front them in a Motel 6 parking lot.

He'd already been tased 10 times, with one officer kneeling on his back as another, Officer Matt Schneider, kicked him in the groin and pulled down his athletic shorts to tase him a final time in his testicles, according to a federal lawsuit and...
