    The incident took place on March 26, 2016. It started when officers stopped a car they said was wanted in connection with a string of larcenies. James Yarborough, a passenger in the car, ran from police. Eventually, officers caught up with Yarborough after a foot chase. Once on the ground, officers struggled with Yarborough for roughly four minutes before putting him in handcuffs. It’s what happened during the four-minute-long struggle that Yarborough said should be considered excessive force.

  • Stop federal funding for universities and police that tolerate left-wing violence

    Cutting off federal funds to permissive universities and police departments is a good first step When I first saw the video of the Berkeley riots from this past weekend, I thought to myself, well, it’s good that those on the Political Right are fighting back. After a few minutes, though, I realized that unless the police and the courts stop this, someone will eventually get killed. It’s hard to blame folks on the Right for showing up prepared for a fight, especially in radical whack-a-doodle Berkeley. The authorities there – if you can even call them that — seldom do...

    The Chicago Police Department is used to taking some serious firepower off the streets: Glock pistols, sawed-off shotguns, even AR-15 and AK-47 rifles. Not every weapons bust gets the big guns, though. Take the fruits of a search warrant executed Wednesday at a home on the city’s southwest side:

    Two policemen have been wounded in a shooting on the Champs Elysees in Paris, French media say. Some reports say the gunman who fired on them has been killed by police. The Champs Elysees has been sealed off. France goes to the polls on Sunday in the first round of the presidential election. There is no word on the identity of the gunman. Jihadism is a major issue in the vote after attacks claimed by so-called Islamic State.

    The Washington Post ^ | April 19th, 2017 | By Orin Kerr
    In a new case, Alexander v. City of Round Rock, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit considers the following question: If the police pull over a driver and the driver indicates he will refuse to answer any police questions, does it violate the Constitution for the police to retaliate against the driver to punish him for refusing to answer their questions? As I read the 5th Circuit’s decision, the court rules that (a) retaliation against the driver for refusing to answer police questions may involve acts that violate the Fourth Amendment, (b) retaliation for refusal to answer...

    Police: “You’re under arrest. Put your hands behind your back!” Suspect: “Don’t touch me! I didn’t do anything!” Police: “Oh, you didn’t? Sorry about that. My mistake. Off you go.” That was a hypothetical conversation that has never occurred. Do we really want to live in a society where individuals get to choose whether or not they feel like complying with the police at any given time? In the mid-1960’s, The Bobby Fuller Four fought the law, and the law won. Several years later, John Cougar Mellencamp reminded us that when he fights authority, authority always wins. And the same...

    Alabama Senate votes to allow church to form police dept. I have seen this time and time again. A church feels they are under attack by outside forces and they decide to use armed guards to protect the Pastors and parishioners. The first time I ran across this was in the early "80"s when I asked if my wife and child could attend my sister-in-laws church. She told me she would have to get permission from the leaders of the church to attend. After inquiring why, I learned that the church had been under attack and that guards were...

    The Snowflake generation now uses their rage as a vicious Marxist weapon with the intent to harm the reputation of anything they don't like, especially when it's a large corporation Okay, I’ve just about had my fill with the news about the United Airlines passenger being dragged off the plane because the company overbooked, but the passenger refused to leave the flight. Should they overbook? Probably not. There is an average number they have calculated of the number of people they believe will not even show up, so based on those numbers, they overbook a little bit to make sure...

    Judge Bredar slaps down Sessions' pleas -- as the Ferguson effect grabs hold Matthew Vadum image An Obama-appointed judge is moving forward with a federal takeover of the Baltimore, Md. police department that critics say will boost crime there by handcuffing police officers in the increasingly violent city. The pleas of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions fell on deaf ears as U.S. District Judge James K. Bredar, appointed by President Obama in 2010, denied a request from Sessions to hold off on enforcing the consent decree drafted by cop-haters for at least 30 days so the new Trump administration could...
