    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Thursday sided with liberal justices in a ruling that delayed the execution of a cop killer amid claims that religious freedom would be violated if the death-row inmate's Buddhist spiritual adviser wasn’t present during his final moments. The nation's highest court blocked the execution of Patrick Murphy about two hours after he could have been executed. Murphy is a member of the “Texas 7” gang of escaped prisoners who are awaiting the death penalty over the fatal shooting of a suburban Dallas police officer. Murphy's attorney argued that Texas prison officials were violating...

    The Supreme Court sent a case concerning a death row inmate, who claims he can no longer remember his crimes because of several strokes he had while in prison, back down to the lower courts to take a second look. The court had already stayed the inmate Vernon Madison's execution last January. In a 5-3 vote, Chief Justice John Roberts sided Wednesday with the liberals on the court in favor of Madison. Only eight justices had heard the case because Justice Brett Kavanaugh had not been confirmed by the time the case was argued.

    [PHOTO] Forget that a legally-emigrated police officer was murdered by a known, illegal Mexican gangbanger. Forget the agony of his family, loved ones (including wife and 5-month old baby), fellow officers, K-9 partner, and friends. Forget that he lost his life. Forget that he had dedicated himself to order and law, and all that was fine. Forget that the skulking Democrats—apparently in blind zeal to see their socialist, pie-in-the-sky, unicorn-fart, Socialist utopia—won’t even discuss the matter, in an ongoing politicized coverup. Just forget about it all. It apparently doesn’t matter. None of it. This brings me to tears....[PHOTO] [PHOTO] [PHOTO]...

    The widow of a Philadelphia police officer who was gunned down 37 years ago in the line of duty is "outraged" over a judge's decision last week to grant her husband's killer a chance to appeal his conviction. On Thursday, Judge Leon Tucker granted Mumia Abu-Jamal another opportunity to appeal his 1981 conviction in the death of Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner. Abu-Jamal spent three decades on death row before his sentence in the shooting death of Faulkner was thrown out over flawed jury instructions. ..." During a routine traffic stop on a vehicle belonging to Abu-Jamal's younger brother, William...

    A valleywide manhunt lasting about 55 hours came to a sudden end Friday morning with the arrest of the man authorities say shot and killed a 33-year-old Newman Police Department corporal. Gustavo Perez Arriaga, 32, was arrested in the small town of Lamont, just east of Bakersfield and about 200 miles from where he’s suspected of killing Cpl. Ronil Singh after a traffic stop early Wednesday morning in east Newman. Arriaga was on his way to Mexico, said Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson at a noon news conference Friday in Modesto as several of Singh’s grieving family members, along with...

    FULL TITLE: Senator who authored California’s ‘sanctuary state’ bill sends condolences to family of slain officer As Twitchy reported earlier, Cameron Gray posted a must-read thread about the number of House members from California who took to social media to demand answers about the deaths of two children in Border Patrol custody but never thought to tweet about Cpl. Ronil Singh, who was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant. Well, there was one tweet and another retweet at least. President pro tempore of the California State Senate Kevin de León, probably better known to out-of-staters as the Democrat who...

    A Philadelphia judge has reinstated appeal rights to Mumia Abu-Jamal — convicted of killing a city police officer more than 30 years ago — who has long maintained his innocence as his case gained international attention. Lawyers for Abu-Jamal praised the decision by Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Leon Tucker as a major step toward winning the former Black Panther’s freedom. “This is an unheard of legal victory,” said Rachel Wolkenstein, former lawyer and longtime activist for Abu-Jamal. “This is the best opportunity we have had for Mumia’s freedom in decades.”

    The illegal immigrant wanted by California cops for the murder of one of their own may have connections to a Mexican-American street gang, according to an image circulating on social media confirmed as authentic by investigators. The Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department – which is leading the investigation into the killing of Newman Police Cpl. Ronil Singh – posted the image, and several others, on its Twitter account early Friday morning. “We can confirm these are pictures of the man who murdered Corporal Ronil Singh,” the department said. “We CANNOT, however, confirm that the correct name or birth date is being...

    A four-legged officer not only helped his human colleagues track down a suspected killer, but also took a bullet to the head, DeKalb County police said Friday. The K-9 officer, Indi, is expected to lose an eye as a result of his work on last night’s DeKalb police confrontation that left an officer dead. Despite his severe injuries, it’s possible Indi could eventually return to duty, Chief James Conroy said Friday. “The dog was very helpful in apprehending and locating the subject in this case,” Conroy said. That subject, Brandon Taylor, is accused of running from Officer Edgar Flores and...

    It's hard to think of a more volatile mix: Four young black males from Baltimore City, accused in the death of a white female police officer in Baltimore County. Authorities say three of the teenagers were breaking into homes when the fourth ran the officer over in a stolen Jeep. Predictably enough, social media, call-in radio and other forums blew up. A sampling from the Baltimore County Police & Fire Facebook page: "I was hoping they'd kill him during apprehension. What a waste of life. He's currently breathing air some decent person could be breathing." "I personally am tired of...

Meanwhile, officials said Tuesday that three additional teenagers had been taken into custody. Baltimore County’s public...

    A Pennsylvania cop killer on death row wants the state Supreme Court to toss out his 2017 conviction. Attorneys for 35-year-old Eric Frein will argue Thursday investigators in Pike County violated his right to remain silent the night he was captured for murdering one state officer, Cpl. Bryon Dickson, and seriously wounding another, Trooper Alex Douglass, nearly four years ago. Frein led state and federal law enforcement on a 48-day manhunt through the Pocono Mountains after gunning down Dickson and Douglass during a shift change at the Blooming Grove barracks on Sept. 12, 2014. He was identified as a...

    An illegal immigrant cop killer, who made headlines when he burst into laughter in court and said he regretted not killing more people, was sentenced to death Wednesday for the 2014 murder of a California sheriff’s deputy and detective -- but not before he was again booted from the courtroom for an outburst. The convicted killer, Luis Bracamontes, shouted a racial slur at motorist Anthony Holmes, whom he shot five times during his rampage four years ago, and used profane language toward former Placer County Deputy Chuck Bardo during the hearing, The Sacramento Bee reported.

    Shomari Legghette, charged with murder in the February killing of Chicago police Cmdr. Paul Bauer, compared himself to Trayvon Martin in a jailhouse interview with Chicago magazine. The magazine details Legghette and Bauer’s lives leading up to the beloved police commander’s slaying. Legghette, a four-time felon, does not go into much detail about the fatal confrontation with Bauer, but said he’s not guilty of murder in Bauer’s shooting. “Would Trayvon Martin have been guilty with George Zimmerman if it had went the other way?” Legghette said. On Feb. 13, officers patrolling Lower Wacker Drive because of a recent shooting and...
