As the motorcycle leaves to pursue, several protesters jump in front of his path with clear intention to interfere with an arrest. One is hit and dragged down the street. They were taken to hospital condition unknown. This just happened a few minutes ago.

    ..... Pratt is the only surviving Australian winner of the George Cross — the country’s highest civilian award for bravery. The equivalent award in the newer Australian honours system is the Cross of Valour, an award that has been made to only five Australians. Pratt, a 21-year-old policeman and married just three months, was on his way to have a haircut when he earned his medal. He drove his own car, on a day off and unarmed, into the front door of a Clifton Hill bank when he saw three armed and masked bandits enter the bank on June 4,...

    Police are on the hunt for at least two gunmen who fired a barrage of shots on the Camden, New Jersey, home of two police officers and their newborn – with six of the bullets penetrating the structure in the “targeted” attack, according to reports. The couple and their 10-day-old baby escaped injury after the assailants opened fire on their Clinton Street home about 11:45 p.m. Tuesday, NJ.com reported. Six of the seven bullets that struck the home made it inside – two through the front door, Camden Police Chief Joseph Wysocki said during a press conference Thursday night, the...

    One of the residents had unwisely invited Robert Thompson, 47, to stay at the apartment he shared with his girlfriend. He did this despite Thompson having a lengthy rap sheet and a history of criminal behavior. True to form, Thompson quickly began causing trouble of an alarming kind, including exposing himself to some young girls, throwing a rock through someone’s window and threatening people (including his hosts) with violence. Understandably, the apartment’s tenant, Leander Mccoy, called the police. But after arriving and questioning Thompson, the police simply left, saying they would “seek a warrant” to deal with the matter. The...

    CLACKAMAS, Ore. – The sheriffs of Clackamas and Washington County say they will not send staff to help with protests in Portland after Oregon Governor Kate Brown unveiled a plan to address the violence at protests.... Clackamas Co. Sheriff Craig Roberts said the governor didn’t approach his office before rolling out the plan, intended to address the violence and arson while also protecting free speech. “Increasing law enforcement resources in Portland will not solve the nightly violence and now, murder,” the sheriff said. “The only way to make Portland safe again, is to support a policy that holds offenders accountable...

    PLEASANTON, TX- Portland, Oregon has become the poster child for the wacky, hard-left Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioting across the country, which is now well into its third month. In some ways, the antics in Portland closely resembles the 1980’s movie starring Kurt Russell, “Escape From New York.” In the movie, New York City has been taken over by criminals and gangs (not unlike what is going on in Portland or in much of the country for that matter) with walls being erected around the city to keep the bad guys in and the good guys out... ...

    Stingrays are routinely used to target suspects in drug and other criminal investigations, but activists also believe the devices were used during protests against the Dakota Access pipeline, and against Black Lives Matter protesters over the last three months. The Justice Department requires federal agents to obtain a probable cause warrant to use the technology in criminal cases, but there is a carve-out for national security. Given that President Donald Trump has referred to protesters as “terrorists,” and that paramilitary-style officers from the Department of Homeland Security have been deployed to the streets of Portland, Oregon, it’s conceivable that surveillance...

    A far-left, antifa-supporting paramilitary group in Columbia, SC, openly advocates for the use of “deadly force” against law enforcement personnel to “protect the people” from what they call government “tyranny.” In a recent Facebook post, the militia group, Civil Defense Corps, suggested that federal agents should be shot in the face, Far Left Watch has learned. According to its website, the Civil Defense Corps is actively recruiting “former infantry” to serve as armed “Reserve Units” to “investigate hate crimes and threats against minorities as well as the LGBTQ+ community.” The local media refers to the heavily armed Civil Defense Corps...

    TEXAS MOTOR CITY SPEEDWAY, FORT WORTH — For the first time, disabled and wounded officers are speaking out about an incident that occurred over the weekend at a NASCAR race at Texas Motor City Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas. On Saturday, a group of disabled officers injured in the line of duty were seated as guests of top female NASCAR driver Angela Ruch. After the race, they asked NASCAR track security if they could take a photo with her vehicle benefitting The Wounded Blue organization, which was painted in tribute to more than 120 fallen officers killed in the line...

    All in all, the 'moms' and 'dad' march in Portland last night can only be described as a March Of Shame. Not only did they not grab their 'kids' by the collar and march them home, they actively participated in the vandalism. At first the march by 'moms' and 'dads' to 'protect' their innocent little kids from the big bad federal marshals looked promising for a peaceful night, until about 10:30 when the mom/dad group was suckered into marching around the block. This gave their blac bloc clad 'children' the time they needed to gather at the courthouse. The yoots...
  • 'Pigs are highly intelligent': Biden staffer rushes to delete anti-police posts after Fox News reaches out

    A staffer for Joe Biden's presidential campaign quickly deleted anti-law enforcement commentary on social media after Fox News inquired about the posts. Sara Pearl, who describes herself as a supervising producer for the Biden campaign, repeatedly derided law enforcement in recent weeks amid calls for police departments to be defunded. In one post from June, Pearl urged others not to call police officers "pigs," a label commonly used to deride law enforcement, because “pigs are highly intelligent and empathetic animals who would never racially profile you.” She also retweeted a comment to that post that labeled cops as "monsters," who...

    A strange and infuriating story, but one with a relatively happy ending, comes to us from The Right Scoop this week. The tale unfolded last Tuesday night at a Five Guys restaurant in Daphne, Alabama. Three officers from the Daphne Police Department showed up at the eatery, but upon entering, five employees turned their backs on them and refused to serve them. That was pretty much the end of the actual encounter because the officers simply left and went out to get something to eat elsewhere. But the incident wound up blowing up on social media and it turned...

    Mayor Eric Garcetti said that Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officers who felt demoralized by recent protests and budget cuts should take heart and “remember why they became police officers.” Garcetti was speaking after numerous reports of “record low” morale in the LAPD, after the Black Lives Matter riots led the mayor to announce $150 million in cuts to the department, which became official on Monday. Garcetti is also feuding with the local police union, which took offense last month when the mayor referred to police (in general) as “killers.” LAPD officers also learned that they would to be paid...

    On Tuesday, 15-year Tulsa Police Department veteran and Sergeant Craig Johnson died at a hospital after sustaining a gunshot wound to his head on Monday. Six-week rookie Officer Aurash Zarkeshan was also in critical condition after also being shot in the head during the same struggle with a suspect. Though Monday's CBS Evening News was the only broadcast newscast to report on their hospitalization, neither they nor ABC, or NBC informed their viewers about Sgt. Johnson’s passing. Proving that the shooting warranted national attention, CBS fill-in anchor Major Garrett delivered a meager 16-second news brief on Monday: Two Tulsa, Oklahoma,...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Motorists saw a startling scene Saturday morning as they drove along a Florida interstate: a mannequin dressed in a police uniform dangling from a rope at an overpass. Emergency crews in Jacksonville, Florida, were dispatched shortly after 6:20 a.m. to investigate a possible suicide. But when they got there, they discovered a mannequin hanging from an Interstate 95 overpass wearing a pig mask and dressed in what appeared to be a New York City police uniform.
