    This man is a real-life hero. Sadly, we don't yet know whether he made it out in time. It goes without saying that we can write many terrible stories about the terror attack at Atatürk Airport in Istanbul yesterday. Dozens of people died -- at least 36, and possibly as many as 50 -- and as many as 150 innocent travellers were injured. There is a story behind every single one of those deaths: a story that, sadly, was ended prematurely because of the actions of a few radical Muslims who hate all those who dare have different views than...

    Orlando, FL — The testimony of a Belle Isle police officer was given this week allowing for the first public account of what happened inside the Pulse nightclub earlier this month. Officer Brandon Cornwell’s account of what happened could explain why the death toll was so high — they were told to stand down and not to pursue the shooter. According to Cornwell, he was one of the first seven officers on the scene. After hearing reports of shots fired, Cornwell was at the nightclub only 38 seconds later. “Some ran towards the building, some stayed back with people running...

    Baltimore Officer in Freddie Gray Case Is Cleared of All Charges ^ | June 23, 2016 | JESS BIDGOOD and SHERYL GAY STOLBERG
    BALTIMORE — The Baltimore police officer who drove the van in which Freddie Gray sustained a fatal spinal injury was acquitted on Thursday of second-degree murder and six lesser charges, leaving prosecutors still without a conviction after three high-profile trials in a case that has shaken this city. In his ruling, Judge Barry G. Williams rejected the prosecution’s claim that the officer, Caesar R. Goodson Jr., had given Mr. Gray a “rough ride” in the van, intentionally putting him at risk for an injury by taking a wide turn while Mr. Gray was not secured with a seatbelt. “The court...

    Prosecutors tried one last time on Monday to persuade a Baltimore judge to convict the driver of a police wagon in which 25-year-old black arrestee Freddie Gray’s neck was broken on the way to a police station. Both sides delivered closing arguments after more than five days of testimony in the trial of Officer Caesar Goodson on charges including second-degree murder and manslaughter. Other officers left Gray in handcuffs and leg shackles inside the paddy wagon, leaving him unable to protect himself from being slammed into the van’s metal walls during the ride. Prosecutors say Goodson “breached his duty” when...

    ORLANDO - Newly released transcripts show Orlando gunman Omar Mateen spoke in Arabic to a 911 dispatcher and told a crisis negotiator that the U.S. needed to stop bombing Iraq and Syria.

Mateen also died. The communications, along with Facebook posts and searches made before and during the shooting, have been slowly adding to the public understanding of the final hours of...

    In 2013, Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen allegedly threatened to kill a Fla. sheriff’s deputy and his family, yet the FBI did not act upon the threat once it had been reported by the sheriff’s office. According to the Treasure Coast Palm, the incident occurred while Mateen — a licensed security professional with G4S Security — was hired as an extra patrolman at the St. Lucie County Courthouse. The deputy in question allegedly made a comment about the Middle East which infuriated Mateen, reports St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara.

    Omar Mateen, the killer who claimed allegiance to the Islamic State, hid in a bathroom at Pulse, a gay nightclub where he had slaughtered scores of people. A wall of cinder block separated him from a team of police officers outside. For three hours early Sunday morning, crisis negotiators tried to end the siege. Then Mateen — whom police said had acted “cool and calm” during discussions — talked about killing more people. Alarmed, police placed an explosive device against the wall and detonated it. The breach failed; the hole wasn’t large enough to allow for a successful rescue. A...

    Perhaps realizing initial statements gave short shrift to the violent episodes outside of Donald Trump’s rally Thursday night at the San Jose Convention Center, both Mayor Sam Liccardo and the San Jose police released additional comments Friday. SJPD initially limited its release of information regarding the violent clashes to noting an officer was assaulted and a “few” people were arrested. Liccardo commended police in his original statement, but seemed to have it both ways in blaming Trump and the people who participated in assaults taking place in the streets following the rally. In an email blast Friday morning, Liccardo came...

    The three Waco police officers who fired shots during the Twin Peaks shootout remain on administrative duties more than a year after the incident that left nine bikers dead and more than 20 wounded. Waco police who are involved in shootings historically are placed on administrative leave with pay until they are cleared by department internal reviews and a grand jury inquiry. In cases not promptly presented to a grand jury, officers have been taken off administrative leave, where they don’t come to work at all, and assigned to administrative duties, where they are put behind a desk or in...

Police sources say the Ivy League school declined a request from the NYPD to install the unobtrusive sensors on campus, without giving a reason. “Columbia is an ideal location because of how it’s situated,” a police source told the Daily News. “We have no idea why they said no. Do they not want to be seen as cooperating with law enforcement?” A Columbia spokesperson said the university is “continuing to review this proposal.” The ShotSpotter sensors...

    A Muslim Police Chief Inspector for Greater Manchester has indicated that, according to his understanding, “Freedom of speech does not mean freedom of offending culture, religion or tradition”.When asked if Mr. Khan and the police force generally support the right to offend religious beliefs, the Greater Manchester Police press office told Breitbart London: “I don’t think we support anyone who would want to say anything offence[sic]”. “It’s a storm in a tea cup… It’s about promoting tolerance, freedom of speech, that’s all he meant with it. He didn’t mean for it to be taken in an offensive way at all…...

    An Atlanta-area woman who called for black people to “rise up and shoot every white cop” apologized for her Facebook post Friday. Prosecutors charged Ebony Dickens with terroristic threats and inciting a riot after they said she wrote, “I condone black on white killings. Hell they condone crimes against us,” and “death to all white cops nationwide” under her Facebook name Tiffany Milan last April. Yet they dropped the rap in exchange for her offering of remorse while surrounded by law enforcement officials at a news conference Friday, WSB-TV reported.

    This letter from a police officer really makes you fully understand how dangerous of a job being a cop really is. They put their lives on the line every single day and don't get the respect they deserve while serving their communities. This is a top down issue that has created an atmosphere of contempt towards the police in our country that has been led by none other than our President, Barack Obama. -------------------------------------------------- "Today, I will not answer the radio call that your boyfriend has come home drunk and is beating you again. Today I will not answer the...

    SILVER SPRING, Md. -- A federal security officer suspected in three fatal shootings outside a high school, a mall and a supermarket in the Washington, D.C., area was arrested Friday, police said. Three people were also wounded in the shootings. Eulalio Tordil, an employee of the Federal Protective Service, which provides security at federal properties, was taken into custody without incident near the supermarket, the scene of the last shooting, authorities said. The brief manhunt and seemingly indiscriminate shootings rekindled fears of the D.C. sniper in 2002, which paralyzed the nation's capital and its suburbs.
