    For months people have been taking to the streets across the country and here locally demanding racial equality and a push for police reform following George Floyd’s death after a police officer knelt on his neck while putting him under arrest. We’re seeing renewed cries for justice after Jacob Blake was shot in the back in Wisconsin in front of his children. His family now says he is paralyzed. This has caused a protest in support of the police officers, from the organization named "Back The Blue." Back the blue protested, but peacefully. Trump supporters are 90% of back the...

    Sixteen years ago, a group of military veterans turned a presidential campaign upside down. The Democratic Party had selected then-senator John Kerry as its nominee. His party positioned him as a war hero, backed with a glowing campaign biography by historian Douglas Brinkley. Inaccuracies in Brinkley’s account attracted the attention of Navy veterans who had served with Kerry in Vietnam. They formed a group called the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth and began to investigate and document Kerry’s activities during and after the war. They quickly found and publicized evidence that undercut Kerry’s mythology, including his oft-repeated claim that he...

    President Trump challenged Joe Biden in the first debate to name one police endorsement he’d received. Mr. Biden couldn’t—virtually all police organizations have endorsed Mr. Trump. Police groups are endorsing Republicans at every level, many for the first time and by overwhelming votes. The nation’s largest police organization, with 355,000 members, is the Fraternal Order of Police. Patrick Yoes, the national group’s president, tells me every officer in the FOP has a vote. The process starts with officers voting at 2,100 local lodges, each of which votes at the state level. Then, at the national level, the states each cast...

    Sgt. Harold Preston was a 41 year veteran of the Houston Police Department. He was the caretaker for his elderly parents. 65 years old, he was just a few weeks away from retirement. He was shot and killed Tuesday morning in the line of duty. Preston was shot by Elmer Manzano, an illegal alien and convicted felon with multiple priors. In October 1994, Manzano was arrested for the unlawful carrying of a firearm in Dallas County. That case was dismissed after a year of deferred adjudication, according to Dallas County court records.In August 2000, Manzano was arrested for assault in...

    A judge has dismissed the third-degree murder charge against white cop Derek Chauvin over the killing of black man George Floyd after he knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes as he begged for air and said 'I can't breathe'. Hennepin County District Judge Peter Cahill granted a motion to dismiss the charge against the former Minneapolis police officer in a ruling Thursday morning. Cahill wrote in a 107-page court ruling that prosecutors did not have probable cause for the charge because there was no evidence Chauvin's actions were 'eminently dangerous' to anyone other than Floyd.

    The brake line of a New York City police vehicle involved in an accident earlier this month was cut, authorities said. Police learned about the suspected sabotage nearly two weeks after the Oct. 7 accident in which two officers assigned to the NYPD's Transit District 20 rear-ended a car at a red light in Queens, an NYPD spokeswoman told Fox News.  The officers were driving near Queens Boulevard and Union Turnpike when the vehicle's brakes failed, and it hit another vehicle at slow speed.  There were minor injuries and the police car was taken to be repaired.  A mechanic noticed that the brake line had been intentionally...

    Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore predicted Tuesday that the city will see more than 300 homicides this year — a level not reached in L.A. in more than a decade. Moore said there had been 266 homicides in the city as of Saturday, representing a nearly 25% increase over the same period last year and surpassing the total number of homicides in all of 2019, when there were 253 killings in the city, and 2018, when there were 260 total killings. Speaking during a virtual meeting of the Police Commission, Moore called the pace of violence in 2020 a...

    Editor's Note: The following piece contains graphic language.The ugliness that we have recently witnessed including rioting, billions of dollars of property destruction, assaults, murders and grossly stupid claims about our nation has its origins on college campuses. Two websites, College Reform and College Fix, report on the despicable teachings on college campuses across the nation. Let us look at some of it. In response to Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson's tweeting that he supports "citizen soldiers" in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Tressie McMillan Cottom, a black professor at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill's School of Information and Library Science declared that "they...

    T.J. L’Heureux, Arizona Democratic Senate candidate Mark Kelly’s deputy press secretary, called police “worthless f–ing pigs” in a tweet posting. This week, under pressure from the campaign, he apologized saying “I deeply regret my comment and apologize for what I wrote. My comment does not reflect who I am or what I believe. I have deleted the tweet.” Afterward L’Heureux lamented what he called “the disturbing trend in our society that forces a person to have to apologize for his personal opinions. It’s not as if I was tweeting something that any loyal Democrat would disagree with, but the climate...

    Law enforcement groups blasted Vice President Joe Biden for again suggesting training police to shoot suspects "in the leg" is a viable way to avoid fatalities, decrying the proposal as dangerous and ignorant. During an ABC News town hall Thursday, Biden gave the shooting advice while talking about broader police reforms, which have been on the public conscience since the killing of George Floyd sparked nationwide racial unrest. "There's a lot of things we've learned and it takes time, but we can do this," Biden said. "You can ban chokeholds ... you have to teach people how to de-escalate circumstances....

    The stepson of a former Democratic state lawmaker is charged with assaulting a police officer and planning sophisticated attacks against police. The video of the assault, which showed an officer hit in the helmet with a bat, went viral after a night of intense, escalating violence against police officers. Jacob Greenberg, 19, is in King County jail on charges of assault in the first degree, attempted arson in the first degree, and reckless burning in the first degree (a charge from an earlier case). Note: charging documents misspell his last name as “Greenburg.” His alleged accomplice has been identified as...

    Editor's note: This column was authored by Wesley Shirola. As if being a police officer in the United States weren’t psychologically demanding enough already, officers have faced increasing mental health challenges in the wake of George Floyd's death and the nationwide reckoning on race that’s followed. This newfound emotional harm has been largely ignored by many mainstream media outlets, which instead have focused on stories about the difficulties of being black in America, white privilege, and defunding the police. Admittedly, these discussions are legitimate and worthy, but refusing to acknowledge the mental health burden on our police officers is simply irresponsible...

    At least 118 Seattle police officers separated from the department, the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH has confirmed. In September alone, 39 officers left the force when the typical number for that month is between 5 and 7. Even new recruits are leaving. There are now only about 1,200 officers in service for the entire city, the lowest it’s been in two decades. And even this number is misleading. Many officers are using their accrued sick time as they begin their escape to other agencies or wait for retirement. The City of Seattle unveiled this officer separation data on Friday...

    Ex-Chicago police Superintendent Eddie Johnson allegedly committed “shockingly violent” acts of sexual assault against his former driver, an officer who was with him on the controversial night that ultimately led to his firing last year. In a lawsuit filed late Wednesday, Officer Cynthia Donald said Johnson raped and abused her repeatedly for more than three years, and later destroyed evidence of that abuse on his cellphone when the city Inspector General was investigating his conduct.
