  • Springfield police detective Florissa Fuentes fired over pro-Black Lives Matter social media post (MA)

    07/14/2020 11:30:41 AM PDT · by matt04 · 49 replies
    Florissa Fuentes went through an admittedly rocky adolescence growing up in the city’s North End, finding herself in loads of trouble before a high school-based city police officer persuaded her to move to North Carolina for a new perspective. Hailing from a heavily military family, Fuentes returned to the city in 2007, a teen hoping for a fresh start. She aimed to join the U.S. Navy, but her brother, Daniel Newsome, was killed in combat in Baghdad, discounting her from enlisting just as she prepared for basic training. Fuentes eventually set her eyes on a corrections career, graduating from the...

    On Monday, Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones (D) thanked President Donald Trump for defending law and order and condemned the “hypocritical” Black Lives Matter movement, insisting that all black lives should matter, including the people killed in the riots following the horrific police killing of George Floyd. “Most people, including black people, they want law enforcement to be out there enforcing the law. I think people just want them to be, they want them to be fair,” Jones said at a White House meeting with Trump. He mentioned the tragic death of Secoriea Turner, an 8-year-old girl shot dead in...

    The Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was killed by Atlanta police last month is being torn down. Photos and videos from an Atlanta Journal-Constitution photographer on the scene show construction crews using an excavator to demolish the charred remains of the University Avenue restaurant. “This is being done in a thoughtful way, with safety as the priority and in cooperation with city officials,” a Wendy’s official told AJC.com. “There are no additional details to share at this time regarding this site.” Tuesday’s demolition comes a little more than a week after demonstrators who had camped out at the site following Brooks’...

    ATLANTA - A federal judge on Monday permanently blocked Georgia’s 2019 “heartbeat” abortion law, finding that it violates the U.S. Constitution. U.S. District Judge Steve Jones ruled against the state in a lawsuit filed by abortion providers and an advocacy group. Jones had temporarily blocked the law in October, and it never went into effect. The new ruling permanently enjoins the state from ever enforcing House Bill 481. In his ruling, Jones said that part of the law "violated the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution." In response to the ruling, Gov. Brian Kemp said that his administration would...

    Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) spoke out this week against the Black Lives Matter movement.Since Loeffler is a co-owner of the Atlanta Dream WNBA team this caused a huge amount of backlash from the cancel culture crowd. Loeffler even accused the Black Lives Matter of being a Marxist organization that is against American principles. She’s right! Senator Kelly Louffler: There’s a big difference between the statement, “Black Lives Matter,” of course the life of every African American matters. We have to root out racism where it exists. But the political organization, Black Lives Matter, is very different. It has Marxist foundations....

    Democrats’ hopes of capturing statewide office in Georgia may have been dashed in 2018, but this year the party appears on the cusp of a breakthrough. The state’s two Republican senators are facing increasingly competitive reelection bids, and President Trump’s poll numbers are suffering there as he scrambles to get a handle on the coronavirus pandemic and respond to ongoing civil unrest over racial injustice and police brutality. Democrats, meanwhile, say that changing demographics in Georgia have made the state ripe for political change. Some 322,000 new voters joined the state’s rolls last year, including many young voters and people...

    The superintendent of the City Schools of Decatur, a district of metropolitan Atlanta, secretly instituted a gender identity policy in 2016 allowing students of both sexes to enter any bathroom they chose. In November 2017, a kindergarten girl was allegedly sexually assaulted in her Decatur school bathroom by a boy who was allowed to be there because of that policy. After reporting the assault to district officials but getting little response, the girl’s mother, Pascha Thomas, filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR). OCR’s recently released findings illustrate the dangers and deception inherent...

    An Atlanta family said it received a voter registration form this week for their cat Cody Tims – who died 12 years ago. "There's a huge push but if they're trying to register cats, I'm not sure who else they're trying to register,” the late feline’s owner, Carol Tims, told Fox5 Atlanta. “I'm not sure if they're trying to register dogs, mice, snakes.” The Tims say they found the form addressed to the cat in their mailbox on Wednesday. Carol Tims described Cody as a “great cat, indoor and outdoor” who “loved his family, loved his neighborhood” and lived to...

    Last Saturday in Atlanta, 8-year-old Secoriea Turner was killed while riding in a car with her mother and a family friend who was driving. According to police, as the driver attempted to enter a parking lot where a group of protesters had illegally placed barricades, armed individuals opened fire on the vehicle, striking it multiple times and killing Turner. Secoriea Turner was black, as is a person of interest police are seeking in her killing. So, in admonishing blacks to choose whether they want to be upstanding citizens who happen to be black or, well, that other word – we...

    Unlike the Washington Redskins, the Atlanta Braves will not consider changing their team name. Though, the organization is discussing whether to keep the traditional “Tomahawk Chop.” “The Atlanta Braves honor, support and value the Native American community. That will never change,” the Braves said in a statement. However, as the Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reports, the team is not yet decided about whether to keep the “Tomahawk Chop.”

    Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones (D) on Tuesday penned an opinion piece slamming former Vice President Joe Biden for failing to stand up to protect the black community. According to Jones, President Donald Trump has done more for the black community than any other Washington politician, all while Biden hides in his basement. In particular, Jones takes issue with the left's calls to "defund the police," which they say is in response to the murder of George Floyd. As the former Chief Executive Officer of DeKalb County, Georgia, I’ve had to manage one of the largest police departments in the...

    Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.), co-owner of the Atlanta Dream, has written WNBA commissioner Cathy Engelbert to express her opposition to the Black Lives Matter movement and ask the league to put an American flag on every jersey when the league resumes play later this month. Loeffler was responding to the WNBA having approved displaying "Black Lives Matter" prominently on courts at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, where the league will hold its season. The WNBA and its union also agreed to honor women such as Sandra Bland, Breonna Taylor and Vanessa Guillen who have died in connection with police...

The five states with the highest Covid-19 deaths per capita to date are New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island; if the District of Columbia were a state, it would place sixth. snip. . . Why did these areas, these national centers of government power (Washington), financial might (New York City), and academic prestige (Boston) do so poorly?
