    The mainstream media was in an uproar over President Trump’s statement, claiming that he was creating a false equivalence between right-wing extremists and those counter-protesting. However, Trump’s statement is consistent with local police reports. “We were hoping that it would not elevate to this level of the violence that we witnessed amongst the participants in the crowds, on all sides. They were throwing bottles, they were throwing soda cans with cement in them,” said a Virginia police spokesperson, according to The Independent Journal Review.

    Rutherford Institute founder responds to rally violence By Courteney Stuart Posted: Tue 7:01 PM, Aug 15, 2017 CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (NEWSPLEX) -- In the days since the violence of the Aug. 12 Unite the Right rally, anger has mounted, some of it directed at the civil rights organizations that represented rally organizer Jason Kessler in his legal fight to keep the rally in Emancipation Park. The Rutherford Institute founder John Whitehead said he doesn't regret taking the case and notes that it's about defending the First Amendment, not supporting the mission of the rally. "If you're going to believe in the...

    The dashcam video was recorded two years ago, but Charnesia Corley said she still feels the pain of what happened that night. She said Harris County deputies pulled her over in northwest Harris County for running a red light, but when the officer approached her car he said he smelled marijuana, according to Corley. Corley was handcuffed as a female officer patted her down and then removed her pants and began what she called an invasive and humiliating strip search. "She tells me, 'Just bend over.' I hesitate ... She shines light on me ... She proceeds to stick her...

    Who gave the Charlottesville police the stand down order that lead to the death of one person over weekend? That question still has yet to be answered. Was it the far left mayor or Clinton lackey and Governor of Virginia Terry Mcauliffe? Could Heather D. Heyer still be alive today if police werent given a stand down order and let the white supremacists and terrorist liberals riot? There are some reports, some of the AntiFa and BLM terrorist hit the driver of the car with a baseball bat. That doesnt excuse him for what he did. But if people were...

    The driver of the Charlottesville vehicle, which killed Heather Heyer and injured 19 others, was Alex James Fields. He was a supporter of Hillary Clinton and a member of Antifa funded by George Soros. He was only 20 years of age and lived in Maumee, Ohio. George Soros used him to further his movement to destroy the United States. Al Americans, Left and Right, need to understand exactly what this evil man is doing to this Country. He is using two political parties to divide the US; ultimately starting a civil war that will crush the United States of America....

    After listening to the disheartened Charlottesville, Virginian, Police Chief press conference a few minutes I know why Democrat, Governor, Terry McAuliffe looked like he had been sentenced to the electric chair on Saturday afternoon. IMHO, this cute little gig, set-up and planned by Democrat, McAuliffe and his buddy Mayor and assistant Mayor in Charlottesville did not go off as planned, because the police were setup to fail with the orders issued by the Governor and his two Mayors. Results, three people murdered, multiple people injured while extreme Right wing & Left wing nutcases tried to kill each other, uncontrolled...

    Florida Highway Patrol troopers have been told by a top official that they have to write more speeding tickets. FHP Major Mark Welch told troopers under his command in an email that the patrol wants to see two citations each hour during their shift. He added that the directive was not a quota. The FHPs top priority is saving lives on Floridas roadways. To achieve this, FHP conducts education and enforcement efforts aimed at curbing dangerous driving behavior. The FHP absolutely does not establish quotas for its members, however, an interaction with an FHP Trooper, whether it is through a...

But an arrest warrant shows police were at the wrong address. DeSoto County District Attorney John Champion confirmed two officers were responding to an aggravated domestic violence call...

    An east Atlanta gym is receiving backlash after the owner posted a sign on the window prohibiting police officers and military members from obtaining a membership. The sign gained attention when a former service member saw it on the window of EAV Barbell Club with profanity, and reported it to media outlets. The owner of the gym, Jim Chambers, claims the policy was put in place because the minority population he serves are uncomfortable in the presence of law enforcement. Chambers claims this policy has been in place since the gym opened. The self-proclaimed political activist told media outlets he...

    Sheriffs Deputy Jose Acevedo was making rounds in a homeless encampment in mid-May just north of the Santa Rosa city limits when he rousted a man from a tent. After the man dressed, unzipped the door and stepped out, he was clearly alarmed by the presence of gun-toting officers. He answered a few of Acevedos questions in broken English, so the deputy switched to Spanish. While the man could still have been arrested for camping on private property, the fear in his face subsided with the opportunity to speak his native language. Being able to talk to people in their...

    The owner of a Facebook page praising the Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg has told their followers that they have been visited by two police officers who provided advice that included a warning to stop posting content that is critical of Islam. According to an update on the page called The Church Of Mogg, the page itself was frozen by Facebook for two weeks, and the owner was advised that they could face arrest for hate crimes if any further content of that nature is posted in the future. Perhaps one of the most worrying parts of the Facebook post is...
  • Sessions: Sanctuary city Chicago's hostility to law-enforcement protection 'astounding'

    The attorney general called the open hostility against protecting law enforcement -- while protecting criminal aliens -- astounding given the influx of Chicagos violence crime. The citys leaders cannot follow some laws and ignore others and reasonably expect this horrific situation to improve, Sessions continued. The grants, named for former New York City police officer Edward Byrne, who was murdered in 1988, would provide $3.2 million to Chicago, to be used for police vehicles. Funding from the grant is a small fraction of the city's budget. A requirement added to the grants would force local jurisdictions to report to federal...
