  • Police Violence against Black Men Is Rare

    National Review ^ | September 18, 2017 | Phillippe Lemoine
    In reality, a randomly selected black man is overwhelmingly unlikely to be victim of police violence — and though white men experience such violence even less often, the disparity is consistent with the racial gap in violent crime, suggesting that the role of racial bias is small. Last year, according to the Washington Post’s tally, just 16 unarmed black men, out of a population of more than 20 million, were killed by the police. The year before, the number was 36. These figures are likely close to the number of black men struck by lightning in a given year, considering...

    Fans booed New Orleans Saints players who knelt before the presentation of the American flag and the singing of the national anthem Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The boos rang down during a moment of silence for fallen NOPD officer Marcus McNeil, who was killed in the line of duty Friday. The fans cheered when the players stood before the anthem, which was performed by former Saintsation Deri Tucker. Sunday's game vs. the Lions was the Saints' first at the Dome since President Trump weighed in on protesting NFL players during a campaign rally in Alabama last month. Officer Marcus...

    A worker at a Texas fast-food restaurant was fired after she refused to serve two police officers, the company said Saturday. In a lengthy post on the Denison Police Department's Facebook page, Chief Jay Burch alleged the officers were cursed at by the employee and that the restaurant manager’s only response was “I don’t get into politics.” “If a business does not want police officers as customers, just let us know,” Burch wrote. “There’s no need to curse us and make a scene, just let us know you don’t want us there and we’ll go somewhere else.” He added, "Now...

    The Texas Tech University campus in Lubbock was on lockdown for more than an hour Monday night after a police officer was shot and killed at campus police headquarters, authorities said. A call for a student "welfare check" led campus officers to a room where they found drugs and drug paraphernalia, prompting the officers to take the student to the station, a spokesman for the school said in a statement. University Police Chief Kyle Bonath said late Monday that the suspect had been taken into custody and was being processed for jail on the drug evidence when "he produced a...

    Back when California Governor Jerry Brown was still pondering the new sanctuary state legislation which was heading for his desk, we talked about the fact that the police unions had backed a version of the bill, but the state’s sheriffs were not onboard. Now that the measure has been signed into law, those same sheriffs are basically in open revolt, publicly protesting the changes and asking the United States Congress to step in. They justify this decision by declaring that the state’s citizens will be less safe because of these changes. (Free Beacon) California’s sheriffs are calling on the...

    WASHINGTON — Alexandria’s top prosecutor says police were legally justified in using deadly force against the man who opened fire on a congressional baseball practice in June, injuring House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, of Louisiana, and four other people. In a 41-page report released Friday, the commonwealth’s attorney for Alexandria, Bryan Porter, said police were justified in fatally shooting 66-year-old James T. Hogkinson who shot at Republican lawmakers practicing at a baseball field in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria for an upcoming charity baseball game. This is a developing story.

    The true character of a leader is often revealed during terror and tragedy. There was unfortunately plenty of both in Las Vegas overnight, but President Donald Trump’s message to law enforcement has provided a glimmer of optimism on a very dark day. Late Sunday night, a gunman opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers from a high vantage point in the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. In the chaos, at least 58 people were killed and hundreds were wounded. The president has made several statements since the tragic event unfolded, but one of the most candid was a phone call...

    Cops in some crime-ridden South Bronx neighborhoods have all but abandoned aggressive or intuitive policing — to avoid getting sued or otherwise derailing their careers, officers admitted to The Post. It also comes against the backdrop of a nationwide outcry against aggressive policing. Scores of NFL players have being kneeling during the national anthem at games to protest police brutality. Several precinct patrol officers recalled incidents in which they didn’t bust suspected drug dealers who were taunting them while recording with cellphone cameras. In one case, a cop said, neighbors were “leaning out their windows, shouting at us to go...

    Geauga County Sheriff Scott Hildenbrand on Sept. 25 issued a notification restricting all deputy sheriffs from accepting any off-duty work at National Football League games. He said the ongoing controversy involving professional sports players not standing for the National Anthem, and their team and league management apparently backing them, is the reason why. "Yesterday I attended the Browns game in Indianapolis with some friends. The stadium was almost full with 70,000 fans in attendance. During the National Anthem at least 21 Browns players kneeled as the entire stadium, made up of all races, ages, sex, religion and careers stood and...
