In the second call, the caller makes clear this is a noise complaint.  He is asked if this is a male and a...
  • Phoenix Police Shooting Was Justified Use of Force

    With great power comes great responsibility. When a citizen answers the police knocking on his door with a firearm in hand, he assumes a lethal risk. He immediately becomes a deadly threat to the officers and should expect the officers to arm themselves in response to his actions. What happens next will be a matter of life and death, so he must tread carefully.  On May 21, 2020, Mr. Ryan Whitaker was shot to death by Phoenix Police after answering his door with a firearm in hand. Mr. Whitaker's family believes the shooting was unjustified, and they are calling for the...

    Protesters lined up body bags on the steps of Florida’s state capitol building Tuesday morning amid the coronavirus pandemic. They were in Tallahassee to encourage Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to listen to state and federal medical experts. The body bags symbolize the additional victims of COVID-19 that could result from relaxing shelter in place orders. A larger than life Donald Trump caricature dressed in a prison jumpsuit joined the protesters along with the grim reaper. This group calls themselves the indivisible movement. Members staged similar protests at the capitol buildings in Austin, Texas and Phoenix, Arizona Tuesday.
