    Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who wrote a letter asking the Department of Justice (DOJ) to investigate Chicago Police policies in December, recently said the windy city’s law enforcement is “holding back.” In coverage of the 44 people killed or injured in last weekend’s shootings in Chicago, WGN-TV reports:U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin feels the spike in shootings could be related in part to low officer morale, as the Department of Justice investigates the police department. “I think they’re holding back now in fear of video cameras, DNA, and losing a job over a mistake they might make,” Durbin said.…

    If you find yourself in an emergency situation in Green Mountain Falls, Colo., don’t bother calling police. In this scenic western hamlet, they no longer exist. All four members of the 700-person town’s police force — Tim Bradley, the police chief, and three volunteer reserve officers — resigned April 14 because of an alleged policy dispute with the municipality’s newly elected mayor, according to Fox affiliate KXRM-TV. Residents told the station that they weren’t exactly sure why the resignations occurred. “Our marshal and three deputies quit, and that’s about all they said,” Ann Pinell said. “We’ve had our hometown marshal...

    Troopers with the Sandusky post of the state Highway Patrol are investigating a serious injury traffic crash involving a car that crashed into their patrol post at 9:07 p.m. Tuesday. A 2006 Ford Fusion was eastbound on U.S. 6 near mile post 4 at a high rate of speed when it traveled off the right side of the roadway. The driver, Dakota Clouse, 24, was not wearing a safety belt and was ejected from the vehicle. Clouse did not have a valid license due to an operating-a-vehicle-under-the-influence conviction in September 2015. He also had an outstanding felony warrant through the...

    Karen Winters knows how easily boys are drawn to a life of violence in the Homan Square neighborhood. But she still can't understand how her 16-year-old nephew ended up shot to death after allegedly confronting a Chicago police officer with a gun Monday evening. "Once again, we're looking at environment, this community. How some of these young boys are just plagued with certain influences," Winters said Tuesday. "But not to this extent, by no means." Police say the officer shot Pierre Loury after stopping a car suspected of being connected to an earlier shooting. Officers pulled the car over around...

    Question to John Heilemann: what's your proof? On his With All Due Respect show this evening, interviewing Ice Cube of NWA, Heilemann flatly stated that the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and Freddie Gray in Baltimore were instances of "police brutality." In the Brown case, the grand jury, which included three African-Americans, declined to bring an indictment against Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot Brown. And President Obama's Justice Department under then AG Eric Holder cleared Wilson of civil rights violations in the shooting. In Baltimore, the the only result to date has been a mistrial....

The second infraction came in January, and the motorist filed suit with the American Civil Liberties Union Tuesday. “Ms. Pyle was extremely uncomfortable with these questions,” the lawsuit says, adding the plaintiff felt intimidated by...

    Protesters at recent Donald Trump campaign rallies have made almost as much news as the presidential candidate himself — getting sucker-punched, landing sucker punches, stopping traffic, stopping the rallies, claiming they were banned from the events. Brandon Tatum, an officer in the Tucson Police Department, went to a Trump rally on Saturday as a civilian to see what was going on. In a subsequent video, he said he thought there was going to be “a full-fledged riot” at the event — but not because of Trump’s supporters. The protesters were the problem, Tatum said. “These people were acting so outrageous,”...

The Third Circuit judge ruled that unless police are recorded with the "stated purpose of being critical of the government," any such video isn't protected speech.

    While many are still reeling from the outrageous shooting of LaVoy Finicum, and the aftermath of the Oregon standoff and arrest of patriots linked to it, there are other battles against the feds taking place across the country. Much less attention was paid to Sheriff Brad Rogers, of Elkhart County in Indiana, who just successfully concluded his own showdown with federal officials from the FDA. The scenario was quite different, but the principals involved strike a similar chord - burdensome overreach and tyranny on the part of the federal government and its swarm of agents. As activists have seen...

    TAMPA (FOX 13) - Beyonce has taken a lot of heat for her new song "Formation," which critics claim has an anti-cop message. Some Tampa Police officers might agree, if the request to work her upcoming Tampa concert is any indication. No one has agreed to do it. Typically, officers who are off-duty agree to work concerts and sporting events at the venue for extra income, but none have signed up to work security for Beyonce's upcoming concert on April 29 at Raymond James Stadium. The concert is expected to be a sold-out show, so not staffing the event with...

    In the past month, criminals have murdered six police officers in the line of duty. The number might have been eight if not for the actions of two concealed handgun permit holders. At this rate, police deaths could be way up this year compared to previous years. By this time last year, only one officer had been murdered. While Republican presidential candidates such as Cruz, Rubio and Trump have spoken out forcefully about police shootings, Democrats have been silent. You’ve probably heard on the news when at least one of these officers has been killed. But you almost certainly haven’t...

    On an early fall evening last September, Chicago police officers John Conneely and Mike Modzelewski heard the call of shots fired go out over their radio. Partners for about a year, they had responded to dozens of shootings together on the city's violence-plagued south side. However, the scene they would soon encounter was anything but ordinary. "It was very chaotic," Conneely said. "When we first arrived, there had to be about a hundred people out on the street, screaming, crying, people yelling," Conneely recently told CNN. "We had a person shot over here, we had a person shot over there,...
