    Authorities are looking into what former Fort Worth police officer Aaron Dean and his partner were told before arriving to Jefferson's home. "The information came from the neighbor to the call-takers and while it was relayed to the dispatch, it was determined to be an open structure call," Fort Worth interim Police Chief Ed Kraus told reporters on Tuesday. Experts say that classification escalated things beyond a welfare check, and meant the officers would respond differently. It could have been a burglary or other crime Many times a welfare check involves a medical emergency, an elderly person living alone or...

    Love him or hate him, President Donald Trump has stood with law enforcement officers, vowing to bring them back to a position of honor and respect.  A far cry from others who have created an environment that has allowed for the current war on our police to reach critical levels.If you take some time and wade through the many inaccurate news stories regarding the President, and tune out the news stations that are continuing to dredge up the same narratives, you will find one major positive consistent message- President Donald Trump loves and respects the men and women in law...

    We have flourished as a people because of our success in establishing self-government. But all of these results are predicated upon a law-abiding people. If our own country should be given over to violence and crime, it would be necessary to diminish the bounds of our freedom to secure order and self-preservation. ~President Calvin Coolidge, Memorial Day, 1927What if we just stopped paying taxes?Really. If our republic has now descended into a land of, by, and for illegal aliens, with law enforcement in major cities now refusing to enforce the laws of this land, then what is the recourse...

    A police officer in Fairfax County, Virginia has been suspended for the transgression of aiding Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in detaining an illegal alien fugitive. If this isn’t proof that right is wrong and up is down in liberal sanctuary cities and counties, we don’t know what is. The officer in question responded to a traffic accident in Alexandria two weekends ago when he realized one of the drivers did not have a license. In the course of checking the individual’s DMV records, ICE notified the officer that the person was wanted by the law enforcement agency for having...

    On Sept. 25, the Democrat-led U.S. House Judiciary Committee held a 3 ½ hour “hearing” entitled “Protecting America From Assault Weapons.” That framing of the issue underscored the erroneous notion that Americans need protection from inanimate objects, rather than from violent criminals who have and always will use any means at their disposal to harm innocent, defenseless people. It also revealed the unfortunate agenda of the proceedings, which was to emphasize politics and finger-pointing over any useful exploration of how Congress might take meaningful steps to improve public safety, The NRA-ILA reports. The most startling claim of the proceedings came...

    A Virginia police officer was suspended after allegedly turning over a suspected undocumented immigrant to federal authorities following a traffic accident last month. The Fairfax County Police Department didn't identify the officer in a statement released Tuesday but said the incident occurred on Sept. 21 when an officer was dispatched to a car accident. The officer discovered one of the drivers didn't have a Virginia driver's license and ran a check with the state Department of Motor Vehicles, police said. The check revealed the driver had a violation for failing to appear for a deportation hearing. The officer verified the...

    DALLAS - A former Dallas police officer who fatally shot an unarmed man in his apartment was found guilty of murder by a Dallas County jury on Tuesday.

The punishment phase, which will start Tuesday afternoon, will determine just how long her sentence will be. Cheers erupted in the courthouse as the verdict was announced, and someone yelled "Thank you, Jesus!" In the hallway outside...

    Following a violent crime spree in Minneapolis, Lt. Bob Kroll blamed the city's "ultra-left agenda" for emboldening criminals and claimed the city council refuses to provide them with the extra police they need to keep the community safe. "The city council... ran on an anti-police agenda and they all made it. It's ultra-left. It's been [an] extreme Democrat-controlled council," he said on "Fox & Friends" Thursday. "It's been that way for 22 years. And [the mayor] didn't think he could get a larger number [of cops] through." "It's an ultra-left agenda that the police are the problem," Kroll added. "[They...

  • Parade panic in NJ: the terrorists have succeeded in scaring public officials, if not the public

    After the 9/11 attacks, we began to hear that cliche about how “the terrorists will have won” if we let ourselves become so consumed with fear that we no longer act rationally. Well, the future is now. That’s my reaction to that decision to cancel the annual Labor Day parade in South Plainfield because a guy left some fireworks in a bar in Sea Bright. When I got an email from the Governor’s Office Monday morning saying this year’s parade had been canceled, I figured it might be because of the weather. -snip- Nope. It soon turned out that the...

    Officials refused to say the name of the gunman involved in the west Texas shooting out loud during a press conference Sunday. Odessa Police Chief Michael Gerke began the update by noting that the investigation into the shooting that left seven dead and 22 injured is still active and ongoing. “There are still multiple crime scenes that are being worked. There are no definitive answers as to motive or reasons at this point. But we are fairly certain that the subject did act alone,” Gerke, who was accompanied by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said. “You’ll notice that I’m not naming...

    Centuries from now, when archaeologists unearth the long-buried cities of the United States of America, they may find artifacts of what by then will be the forgotten craft of journalism. Just as we look today at the medical practices of antiquity and wonder how our forebears could have been so backward, those archaeologists of the future will marvel, as they sift through a newly unearthed newsroom amid the ruins New York, Washington, D.C., or Los Angeles, that American journalists were once burdened by such quaint notions as objectivity, fairness, and devotion to the truth. “Imagine,” they will say, “being so...

I refer you to the August 16 story that ran under the headline “Getting killed by police is a leading cause of death for young black men in America.” As is the intent, the headline is an attention-grabber. “My goodness,” the reader is expected to say, “those young black men must be getting a pretty raw deal from the police these days.” Most readers of course will not delve beyond the headline, but even those...
