This is sickening! Look I have my issues with the police but this is uncalled for by this teacher, and it’s a result of the radical left which is crazy as hell. You know this substitute teacher is a crazy person just by watching this video. Make no mistakes folks this man is looney tunes. I mean watching this shows why we’re having so many issues with schools failing us all over the country. There are a lot of nuts in the school system teaching nothing but hate to kids.
Personally I think this teacher needs his teaching licensing revoked, and he shouldn’t be able to teach anywhere.
Once again we have a case where the FACTS don’t follow the on going narrative of the land… Just like in the unjustified verdict of “Guilty” on the Floyd case of now ex cop Derek Chauvin we have another case here of a cop who is being accused of the murder of a black person. This time a 16 year old black girl who if you believe the “narrative” was an innocent kid who was targeted by an evil white supremacist cop, and killed. The bodycam however refutes this completely…. But the narrative, and the black community are sold on the victim mentality so clearly anytime now a black person dies in a shooting by a white cop the cop is a clear “neo nazi white supremacist”, and hates “blacks” this is all the want us to see folks!
But in the bodycam we clearly see the 16 year old girl who’s a big fat woman and doesn’t look 16 about to STAB another black lady with a knife, and there is a fight where another black person is being kicked in the head by a man in the fight.. The cops doing his job by trying to stop a murder from taking place infront of him and when he see’s someone about to be stabbed to death, and he reacted like a normal police office would! He shot the person about to “MURDER” someone in front of him… Period.
This wasn’t racial as the person about to be stabbed to death was also a black lady! But the media, and the crooked leftist mob doesn’t care about actual black lives! This is about destroying the police, and about taking anything that they have to do to stop criminals as being seen as bad, and so the criminals get to riot, loot, murder, and do what they want know if they happened to be black? This isn’t equal rights this is “elitists rights” and sorry we don’t live in that sort of country. But this is what the socialist/communist media is trying to sell you down a river for, and first this they need is to destroy the institution which is in place to serve & protect. And folks they will try hard to replace it with “Sharia LAW” this is the end game… This is an Islamic take over, and you’re all getting played like fools.
Check out how this clear moron leftist reported this crap… As reported by a clear racist moron named Anoa Changa who’s again trying to sell us a lie.
Ma’Khia Bryant will never see her graduation. Instead, reports of the 16-year-old girl’s death at the hands of a Columbus, Ohio, police officer began making the rounds late Tuesday afternoon, just as the nation celebrated the guilty verdict in the Derek Chauvin murder trial, 10-WBNS reports.
OK This has nothing to do with the Derek Chauvin trial but notice how quick they throw this in there? This tactic to tie it into another case to show justification as to why this cop is a racist bigot murderer! LOL Hilarious but let’s continue.
Ma’Khia reportedly called the Columbus Police Department for help, though accounts of why exactly she called have differed. What is clear, however, is that instead of serving and protecting, responding officers made her the latest victim.She made herself one by trying to kill someone in front of the cops! But this leftist moron doesn’t care about “FACTS.”
Raw emotion and justified outrage exploded in the southeast Columbus neighborhood as the community came to terms with what transpired. Ma’Khia’s mother, Paula Bryant, spoke with local reporters and shared that her daughter was an honor student.An “Honor Student” who was about to murder someone with a knife! And it’s on video… No honor in murder.
Nearby residents gathered outside almost immediately after the shooting. “You killing babies, bro?” one person on the scene asked rhetorically. So he needs to let “The baby” who’s a big fat black woman kill someone else because why? How is this justified? This is the problem with black America it’s like they’re so stupid on this victim mentality they cannot see clear, and past their own stupid mental block, and see the facts.
Black communities cannot even enjoy a brief reprieve from police violence. Local reporters explained that many of the people who came outside as news of Ma’Khia’s death began to circulate had been heading downtown in anticipation of the Chauvin verdict.Because it was the cops who were there using violence right? They called themselves on themselves, and the cops were the ones trying to stab people right? They’re the ones who were kicking people in the head oh infront of people? No this was the actions of the people there, and the cops reacted correctly in stopping a murder from happening. Period! But look how the narrative is already getting build by the mob, and the media.
“We don’t get to celebrate nothing,” K.C. Taynor said of the Chauvin verdict. “…In the end, you know what, you can’t be Black.”“Celebrate” who celebrates a case of unjustice? Oh wait black people do this all the time when they get the mob way! Remember who celebrated when OJ got off? Black Americans… Even Chappelle, and other comedians like Chris Rock made fun of blacks for celebrating the murder of 2 innocent white people at the hands of OJ Simpson. He got off cause he’s a rich black celebrity, and the blacks love him so they partied like it was 1999 back in the mid 1990’s when that happened. Everytime there is a trial they go their way they celebrate after they riot, loot, and murder more people in what is always a rush to judgement by these morons on the left. Which is all fueled by the media.
If I seem pessimistic please note: while they were reading the verdict of Derek Chauvin, 15 year old #MakiyahBryant was being shot 4 times by Columbus, Ohio police. A Black child was shot and killed by police today. In my city. It never, ever ends…
The Ohio Attorney General’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation took over investigating police shootings in Columbus last year. In early June of 2020, Mayor Andrew J. Ginther decided that all police shootings would be referred to the state agency. This move came after racial justice protests, including a May 30 gathering where police pepper-sprayed several Black elected officials, including Rep. Joyce Beatty. It also followed years of complaints about the bias in the Columbus Police Department and with the prior prosecutor.
Still, the system is still the system. Before Tuesday afternoon, there had been 26 investigations of officers for shootings since the beginning of the year, with six of those shootings happening in Columbus. AP News reports that in February, a grand jury returned an indictment against former Columbus police officer Adam Coy in the killing of Andre Hill, 47. Mind you nothing here has anything to do with this current incident but the person writing that garbage is trying to tie things up to sell you that this cop is just another racist murderer.
Hill was killed just three days after Christmas after walking out of his garage.
Last November, voters replaced a long-term Republican prosecutor who was known for rarely holding police accountable, the Appeal reports. Voters also approved the creation of a civilian review board, with Ginther naming the members of the newly minted board at the end of March. According to the Columbus Dispatch, two-thirds of the new board is Black. Members range in age from 30 to 72.
While necessary for accountability under the current system, charges against police officers do not make up for the lives lost. And contrary to President Joe Biden’s comments earlier Tuesday evening, the Chauvin verdict was not a big step in any direction.
When police can shoot to kill first and sort out the details later, there is so much work left. Adrienne Hood, a Columbus activist and mother of Henry Green, said last week she had no interest in trying to work with or reform the local fraternal order of police, KPFA reports.
the police shot and killed a 15 year old Black girl in Columbus as the verdict was being read. She reportedly called them for help.
Hood’s son Henry Green was killed by Columbus police in 2016. She spoke about tackling the qualified immunity enjoyed by law enforcement. “Until we are able to do something with that, the challenges will continue,” Hood said about her work with Ohio Families Unite Against Police Brutality.Another case that has nothing to do with anything only brought up to feed into emotions.. And the facts in the case also showd that while Mr Green was a BLM activist might have been there in peace but the reports came out he was fired on because he had a gun. And so the left who wants to get rid of “guns” are defending him who had a gun and got himself shot at by cops. Hypocrisy?
“Families will continue to face the challenge of accountability. Because justice can never be for me because you can’t give me my son back. But accountability is a must and is necessary.” Sorry for your loss maybe you should have been a better parent, and showed your kids a better way in life? Like don’t point guns at cops.
After the riots, and the looting, and the idiots breaking the law over NOTHING! Body cam shows another instance where the so called “black victim” of a white mother is actually is the one who brought his own death on himself by not doing as he was being told by the police to do. Wright, a 20-year-old was fatally shot sadly and again by police in suburban Minneapolis.
Bodycam footage suggests the officer may have meant to fire a Taser but shot a gun by mistake and I got the footage here as it does indeed show the officers own reactions were that of someone who knows they just made a major mistake, and this wasn’t intentional. But again had the white/black suspect being detained not reacted how he did he would be alive now. ONCE Again showing the narrative being sold doesn’t always match the actual events which took place. This is why people need to STOP acting from emotion, and watch the events as they unfold, and look at the bodycam footage.
You cannot act this way with the cops no matter what your skin color is an expect them not to react this way. I’ve been pulled over before, and I avoid getting show because I’m friendly, I follow their instructions, and I’m not involved in anything illegal! IF you have nothing to hide from the police than why act like this? This only shows you’re guilty of something and it’s the cops job to keep criminals off the streets right? This is what cops are paid for. Protect, and serve, and keep criminals from harming others. While it’s sad, and heart breaking to see a young man lose his life this way, and I feel for his mother, and family it’s not something which should cause riots.
Moments before he was killed, Daunte Wright called his mother and told her he got pulled over. She had no idea it would be the last time she would speak with her son. The 20-year-old needed to get insurance information, his mother Katie Wright said. “I said OK, when the police officer comes back to the window, put him on the phone and I can give him all our insurance information,” she said.
“A second goes by, and I hear the police officer come back up to the window and ask Daunte to get out of the car. Daunte asked, ‘For what?’ The police officer said, ‘I’ll explain to you when you get out of the car.'”
The mother said she could hear the police and her son struggling. “Then the police officer asked him to hang up the phone,” Katie Wright said. “Three or four seconds went by. I tried calling back to back to back because I didn’t know what was going on.” At worst, she thought, maybe he was being arrested. She soon saw it was much worse. “When I called back, the girl that he had in the car answered the phone, and it was on FaceTime. And she was crying and screaming and said that they shot him. And then she pointed the phone towards the driver’s seat and my son was laying there, unresponsive. That was the last time that I seen my son,” she said, sobbing.
“That’s the last time I heard from my son. And I’ve had no explanation since then.” Police in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, said Wright was initially pulled over Sunday afternoon for an expired tag. Bodycam footage shows that after Wright stepped out of the car and then got back in, an officer said she was going to use a Taser on him. But instead of shooting a Taser, Officer Kim Potter fired a handgun, screaming “Oh sh*t! I shot him,” as Wright was mortally wounded.
Both the officer and the police chief have resigned. A toddler is now fatherless. And the Minneapolis area, already grappling with the death of George Floyd, now mourns another death of a man during a police encounter. ‘They stole my son’s dad from him’ said his mother as Wright leaves behind a young son, Daunte Wright Jr., who was supposed to see his dad to celebrate his upcoming 2nd birthday.
“Now my son, he don’t have a dad,” said the boy’s mother, Chyna Whitaker. “His dad won’t get to see him for his second birthday or for any of his birthdays. And I’m just so messed up about it because I feel like they stole my son’s dad from him. How do we put life back together after this?’ Naisha Wright made the cross-country road trip from her home in Alabama to Minnesota after learning about her nephew’s death.
“My nephew was 20 years old. I don’t care what nobody got to say about him. He was loved,” Naisha Wright said, acknowledging the strong family built by the young man’s parents. “This is no broken home. This is 23 years of love.” But now, the family has been shattered after Wright’s death. “My mother shouldn’t have to be burying her grandchild. My brother and my sister shouldn’t be burying their son.” said Naisha Wright.
The explanation that Wright was killed accidentally gives zero comfort to his family. “I cannot accept that. I lost my son. He’s never coming back,” Wright’s father Aubrey Wright told ABC’s “Good Morning America” Tuesday. “I can’t accept that … mistake. That doesn’t even sound right. You know, this officer has been on the force for 26-plus years. I can’t accept that.” The case is being investigated by an independent agency, and it’s not clear if Potter will be charged. Katie Wright said she “would like to see justice served and her held accountable for everything she’s taken from us.” And we agree there should be justice for her, and the family this man left behind. But again had he not done what he did he would still be alive today. The blame here goes both ways… Check out the footage below.
Well there it is the bodycam footage… Thoughts? Comments? Shocked? Well talk about it below in the comment section.
OK So this guy is now gonna have the nerve to sue the cops? I mean seriously anyone who watches the body cam, and then his footage can easily tell he’s the one not just at fault! But with how he acted it’s like he was trying his hardest to get shot. But to add insult to injury the officer who hit him with pepper spray was fired! HOW The hell? This moron “Lt. Caron Nazario” was not following the officers commands, he wouldn’t come out the car after being asked over, and over, and over like 15 times to do so. He kept acting stupid or maybe was HIGH! He looked stoned out of his mind, and can’t say nobody else hasn’t noticed?
The cop was actually nice considering the actions of “Lt. Caron Nazario“, and he was with a weapon in the car… How are the cops going to know if he’s even sane? There was nothing wrong at all done by the cops here, and to fire the one cop is a joke, and it shows how the powers on the left are hell bent on making the cops always the bad guys if now it’s a liberal who doesn’t obey the law.
Check out this video as the Lieutenant STOPPED by Police body cam is EXPLAINED by Officer Tatum…
What makes this case so incredibly sad is the cops did everything pretty much right! They didn’t shoot him, they de-escalated the situation which “Lt. Caron Nazario“ was trying his best to make a bigger deal out of by avoiding to comply with the officers demands. I mean this is the sort of mentality which has now crept into the minds of these liberal young people who think they don’t have to listen to the law. This isn’t cause he’s black because a lot of White, Asians, Latinos also act this way. This is an elitist mentality. I’m Latino, and I’ve seen this sort of behavior first hand from some of my own.
The shocking thing is the cops were for the most part VERY reasonable, and should get applauded for being so patient with this absolute disgrace to the military. He should be dishonorably discharged and that’s my final say on this one folks I’ve seen enough to know that now the city is pandering to him cause he’s a black liberal in the Army.
The officer, Joe Gutierrez, was terminated for his role in the Dec. 5 encounter involving “Lt. Caron Nazario“, a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army Medical Corps, the town of Windsor, Va., said in a statement posted on its website.
Officials said an internal investigation had determined that Mr. Gutierrez’s actions were not consistent with the department’s policies. They did not provide further details on when Mr. Gutierrez had been fired.
Body camera footage of the encounter has drawn widespread attention and criticism of Mr. Gutierrez, as well as another officer who was also involved in the traffic stop. Both officers were sued on April 2 in U.S. District Court in Norfolk by “Lt. Caron Nazario“, who has accused the officers of using excessive force and violating his constitutional rights.
“Lt. Caron Nazario” is what Pelosi, and the democRATS want to keep in the military while they’re actively throwing out conservative military people. In other words if you’re a white conservative military person the left will have you thrown out, and so they could keep morons like this. This dude was totally trying to set the cop up to do something to him so he could become another victim of police brutality. The fact is the officer is the victim of this morons idiotic behavior. They should arrest this man, and take him on in to jail for his idiotic behavior. This guy is also a liar, and someone who openly caused this to happen to him.
So he claimed he was being pulled over due to having a “Air Freshener” in the mirror hanging. At least this is what his white mother is saying. Why do I say “white mother” cause race was put into this from the start when the report went out that “A BLACK MAN SHOT and KILLED by COPS!” Which is very deceiving because he was not a “black man”not with a “white mother” sorry at best he’s a mulatto or half black and half white. Again this is “Science” and to be honest he’s lighter skin than most “White guys” I know… But this kid was only a 20 year old and yet had a lot of life to live, and now Daunte Wright is dead fatally shot by Brooklyn Center police on Sunday (April 11) afternoon, which prompted more racial protests at the scene.
Like we needed more reason to have “race” issues in the country right now right?
And in all places for this crap to happen in Minnesota of all places! But Daunte was stopped by police during a traffic stop. According to ABC News, the young man was shot after getting back into his car and trying to drive away from the scene. Daunte would later crash his car into another vehicle a few blocks away, and be pronounced died shortly after.
On scene here in Brooklyn Center near 63rd & Kathrene just witnessed police in riot gear rolling up to the scene here. Stay with @KARE11 for the latest. pic.twitter.com/GFNEoSoQLI
News reporter Chris Hrapsky for Kare 11, which is a news outlet in Minneapolis, said that Daunte’s mother, Katie Wright, again a white woman, revealed to the press exactly why her son was pulled over according to her phone call before he was fatally shot. “The mother of Daunte Wright says the 20-year-old called her when he was pulled over by Brooklyn Center police about 1:40 p.m,” the journalist tweeted hours after the incident. She claims “He told her police pulled him over for air fresheners hanging in the mirror, she told reporters.” News would add that cops later learned that Daunte allegedly had an outstanding warrant.
Angered by the 20-year-old’s life that was taken by cops, a protest soon broke out at the scene with hundreds of protesters demanding justice for the death that many deemed wasn’t necessary. Brooklyn Center police would respond by showing up to the protest in riot gear. Brookyn Center is about nine miles away from Minneapolis, where Derek Chauvin’s trial for the murder of George Floyd is currently taking place.
“The officer shooting in Brooklyn Center today is tragic. We are asking the protesters to continue to be peaceful and that peaceful protesters are not dealt with force,” Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott later said on Twitter.
Katie would also admit that she heard a cop tell Daunte to “put the phone down and get out of the car” before he was shot. After he hung up, his girlfriend, who was in the passenger seat of the car, would soon call her crying and showing Daunte’s lifeless body in the driver’s seat.
IN A Total holy crap moment look how things went from cringe worthy of being a weird stop to all out resisting arrest, and attempted murder on a cop!! So this is why if you get pulled over by a cop even if you got some shit on you might as well not pull off some crazy shit like this lady in Tennessee did. Now she is dead after a brutal shootout with a police officer who pulled her over on Friday, near Brick Church Pike in Nashville. The hilarious part of this sad tale is both the cop, and lady were shall we say… “Heavy in the game!” OK Bad joke… But as it’s been now reported by ABC that Metro Nashville Police Officer Josh Baker pulled over a car registered to Demond Buchanan, 42, who had active warrants out for his arrest. A female, identified as Nika Holbert, 31, was driving the car. She pulled over and told Baker that she was the only one in the car.
At Baker’s request, Holbert got out of the car and handed her bag over to him. Initially, Holbert cooperated and made a phone call while Baker searched her bag. When Baker found a white substance in a clear baggy, he attempted to arrest Holbert. She resisted and ran to the vehicle.
“Don’t put me in handcuffs! I haven’t done anything wrong!” Holbert screamed. Officer Baker pulled out a Taser and deployed it, but Holbert reached for a gun, despite getting struck by the Taser. Cause well she being a big girl I’m sure could handle a “taser” and so the show down got bad! Baker yelled “Ma’am, put the gun down!” Within seconds, Holbert fired, hitting Baker in the torso. Baker fired back several times but Holbert managed to drive away from the scene. She crashed the car shortly after and was taken to TriStar Skyline Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead and Officer Baker is in stable condition after surgery.
The First 2020 Presidential Debate Scored Massive Ratings, and Trump holds ‘Great American Comeback’ event following first debate in Duluth, MN.
Tuesday night’s so-called debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden was seen by a whopping 73.1 million viewers Tuesday, according to Nielsen. That’s a huge number more than triple the audience of this year’s Oscars but it wasn’t quite the blockbuster as the first debate of the 2016 general election. That Trump vs. Hillary Clinton opening slug fest drew a record 84 million viewers.
It seems likely the 2016 debate was something of a unicorn, given it marked the first time Trump had faced off against a Democratic opponent in a debate and the first time a woman had been in a presidential general election campaign. Indeed, the 2020 tune-in easily beat the numbers for the 2012 showdown between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, which was seen by 67.2 million viewers. On the other hand, the 2020 numbers include viewing done outside homes and via connected TV sets, data which wasn’t incorporated into earlier ratings reports. Nielsen estimates connected TVs could have boosted the 2020 ratings by as much as 11 percent.
Another big change between 2020 and 2016 is how much better cable news networks did overall this cycle vs. the first debate of 2016. Four years ago, NBC actually drew the most viewers for its coverage of Clinton vs. Trump, with just under 18 million viewers; this year, it drew about half as many eyeballs, with 9.7 million linear viewers. It helped that the network’s Lester Holt moderated the 2016 debate, of course, but NBC also had a boost from that night’s episode of The Voice, which drew nearly 12 million viewers. This time, the premiere of The Weakest Link brought in just under 6 million— a great number by fall 2020 standards, but another sign of how much the broadcast ecosystem has withered in four years. By contrast, NBC’s MSNBC snagged 7.2 million for the 2020 debate, up from 4.9 million in 2016.
The big ratings winner vs. 2016, however, was Fox News Channel: With the network’s Chris Wallace moderating, the Trump-friendly network notched 17.8 million viewers, a gain of more than 50 percent from 11.4 million in 2016. CNN landed in the middle: It averaged 8.3 million viewers for the debate Tuesday, a decline of 20 percent vs. 2016 (9.9 million). ABC, meanwhile, was the top-rated broadcast network with 12.6 million viewers, followed by CBS (6.3 million) and Fox Broadcasting (5.4 million.) Nielsen tallied audiences from 16 networks: ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, Telemundo, Univision, PBS, CNN, CNNe, Fox Business Network, Fox News, MSNBC, Newsmax, Newsy, Vice and WGN America.
Interestingly, among older viewers—those aged 55 and up— Tuesday’s Trump/Biden debate actually drew a slightly larger overall audience (40.5 million viewers) than the first 2016 debate (40 million.) But the overall audience declined because viewership fell by around 25 percent with audiences aged 18-34 (8.4 million vs. 12.8 million) and dropped around 20 percent with viewers between the ages of 35 and 54 (20.3 million vs. 25.3 million.) Tune-in among kids was also down by a few million, but given what transpired last night, that’s probably for the best.
So check this out! A Vancouver, Canadian Freedom Rally held on September 13, 2020 was so good I had to share it… The Trump train is global folks! More, and more people are waking up world wide, and noticing that he’s the best President this country has had in many decades. This video is inspiring, and shows that the word is spreading… The truth movement is real. The speakers talk about the MASK Rules, and bring up Trump & Hydroxychloroquine and what happens next is EPIC!
Several hundred protesters gather without face masks on the steps of Vancouver’s art gallery Sunday afternoon was christened by a local organizer as the “Vancouver Freedom Rally.” The rally saw anti-mask advocates from Hugs Over Masks march alongside anti-vaccine advocates, 5G and QAnon conspiracy theorists, and members of a far-right group.
Signs were held, denouncing orders made by provincial health officials to help curb the spread of the coronavirus after its rapid spread led to a pandemic declared in March. One of the protest organizers, Ryan Kulbaba, took to the microphone to address the crowd. Early on in his rally speech, Kulbaba thanked the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) for acknowledging “[our] right to protest.” “They have been nothing but accommodating to us. They are here for our safety,” he said to the crowd, ushering in a large round of applause. Kulbaba advocated for “informed consent,” so that British Columbians can ultimately decide whether or not they get a COVID-19 vaccination or wear a face mask.
Currently, no law forces vaccinations or face masks on B.C. citizens. “We shouldn’t be shamed for protesting our right to breathe oxygen,” Kulbaba said. “It’s our bodies and our choice.” A similar protest erupted in Quebec, which saw crowds march through downtown Montreal Saturday, demanding an end to mask-wearing and other COVID-19 regulations. At attendance in both cities were propagators of the QAnon conspiracy theory, which asserts – among other largely-discredited claims – that U.S. Democratic Party officials are trafficking children for sex.
Last summer, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) listed QAnon as a national security threat, following two violent incidents involving followers of the theory. At one point in the demonstration an upwards of 700 Vancouver protesters according to a VPD tally joined together in the singing of “O Canada.”
Anti-mask groups have held weekly rallies around Metro Vancouver but Sunday’s event was the largest demonstration yet. Signs carried by protesters read “breathing is not a crime: end the masquerade” and “fear is the real pandemic.”
Written on another was: “I’d rather bury my family from COVID than see them enslaved to the fear of it.” Announced Aug. 21, VPD officers are now able to issue $2,000 fines to organizers of events with more than 50 people. They are also able to dole out tickets of $200 to individuals who are not social distancing. VPD’s director of public affairs, Simi Heer, confirmed that VPD members did attend the protest Sunday. “Police response at large protests needs to be measured and proportionate and each circumstance is different,” Heer said. “At this protest, police were not issuing fines and instead, were there to keep the peace and protect the public and protesters.”
This is the first mask-less protest of this scale in Vancouver since the police’s new powers came into effect.
The family of a man who was shot and killed by police in Lancaster says he was off his medication and not thinking clearly…. Clearly! Now I don’t want to sound like a jerk here but this shooting was justified. You can’t expect the cop to allow a crazy person to tab him to death before he can do something. You can’t throw money at these things they’re random events. The body cam of the incident is telling me no charges should be filled… Check it out.
Judge Sets Bail at $1 Million Each for Lancaster Rioters which is about right! I Wish more judges would do this and not just let these lunatics out. Rioting in Lancaster, Pa. in the wake of the police shooting of a knife-wielding man has led to the arrest of 12 adults and one minor, nine of whom are being held at Lancaster County Jail on $1 million bail each.
The arrests happened during a riot around 3 a.m. Monday that saw demonstrators marching from the scene of the shooting to the police station while throwing glass bottles, rocks, bricks, gallon jugs filled with liquid and plastic road barricades at police, authorities said. A county vehicle was also damaged.
An officer fatally shot 27-year-old Ricardo Munoz on Sunday afternoon while responding to a call that Munoz, who suffered from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, was becoming aggressive with his mother and was attempting to break into her house, the Lancaster City Bureau of Police said.
After the officer responded to the call at 4:15 p.m., body-cam footage released by the department shows a woman fleeing the house while Munoz is yelling inside. The video then shows Munoz running out of the house holding a knife before the officer shoots him several times and the 27-year-old falls to the ground. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Twelve adults arrested in the rioting face a variety of felony and misdemeanor charges, including arson, riot, institutional vandalism and criminal conspiracy. One defendant, 23-year-old Yoshua Dwayne Montague also faces a charge of illegal possession of a firearm.
Magisterial District Judge Bruce A. Roth set bail for nine of the defendants Montague; Jamal Shariff Newman, 24; Barry Jones, 30; Matthew Modderman, 31; Talia Gessner, 18; Kathryn Patterson, 20; Taylor Enterline, 20; T-Jay Fry, 28; Dylan Davis, 28 – at $1 million each. Court records show all were unable to post bail, according to Fox News.
Lancaster Stands Up, a social justice advocacy group, said Patterson and Interline were working as “medics” at the protest when they were arrested. “The absurdly high bail amounts indicate that what we’re seeing is not a measured pursuit of justice, but a politically motivated attack on the movement for police reform and accountability,” the group said in a tweet. The group then called on elected officials “to step in and defend Taylor, Kathryn and other peaceful protesters against the politically motivated actions of local law enforcement, prosecutors and judges.”
Police also arrested a 16-year-old boy, who faces charges of rioting, disorderly conduct, possession of instruments of crime, possession of a small amount of marijuana, propulsion of missiles onto a roadway and institutional vandalism.
The thing I’d like to know is where is the outrage from the media? Why is this not being covered properly? I hope this doesn’t get swept under the rug like most crimes like these do these days by mainstream media. So two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were critically wounded after being shot Saturday evening in Compton California in what authorities described as an “ambush” that was captured on surveillance video. Folks I’ve lived in Compton as a kid, and that area has always been a haven for gangs, crime, poverty, and ironically enough! Mostly been if not always been ran by SOCIALIST DemocRATS! This is sickening… The video, released by the department, shows a man walking up to the deputies’ parked patrol car, pulling out a gun and firing several times into the front seat area from the passenger side. The assailant is then seen running from the scene. I bet he’s going to claim he didn’t do it when they catch his ass. Stupid motherfucker I’m happy we got video cams EVERYWHERE these days. The department later said both were out of surgery. Law enforcement sources told The Times at least one of the deputies was shot in the face and the other in the head.
Speaking at a news conference at the hospital late Saturday, Sheriff Alex Villanueva described one of the injured deputies as a 31-year-old mother of a 6-year-old boy and the other as a 24-year-old man. He said both deputies were sworn into office just 14 months ago.
“The two deputies were ambushed by a gunman in a cowardly fashion,” he said. “This is a dangerous job.” He noted that sheriff’s detectives on Thursday shot and killed a man in Compton who they said opened fire on them as they served a search warrant. “Every week across the nation someone is losing their life in the line of duty,” he said. “This is just another grim reminder of that.”
Assemblyman Reggie Jones-Sawyer (D-South Los Angeles), also spoke at the news conference. “This was an unprovoked cowardly act,” he said. “The individual will be caught, and justice will prevail.” “Tonight we must as a community condemn the act of the perpetrator,” he added. “More importantly we must come together and pray for the officers because they are heroes.” LAPD Chief Michael Moore also offered his support. No further details were immediately available, and it was unclear whether detectives had identified a suspect. The FBI is assisting in the investigation.
“Tonight we pray for these two guardians to survive,” the chief tweeted. “I recognize and acknowledge we live in troubled times. But we must as a community work thru our differences while loudly and resoundly condemn violence. Blessed are the Peacemakers.”
Some local law enforcement officers took to social media to express their anger and disgust over the shooting. “I hope this monster is caught soon,” LAPD Capt. Gisselle Espinoza tweeted. “I’m sick to my stomach. The deputies are in my prayers. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.” Both of the deputies were members of the sheriff’s transportation detail.
Metro has split policing duties of its 1,433-mile service area — including 93 rail stations and nearly 14,000 bus stops — among three agencies: the Los Angeles Police Department, which patrols buses, trains and stations in the city of L.A.; the Long Beach police, who work at eight Blue Line stations; and the Sheriff’s Department, which patrols the rest of the system.
This summer, the Metro board approved a series of policing reform measures, including no longer sending armed officers to respond to nonviolent crimes, hiring unarmed ambassadors to work at stations and expanding fare discounts.
