    We unfortunately have another police shooting of an unarmed teenage suspect back in the news, though this one took place much earlier in the year. (Before the SJW and BLM get their knickers in a bunch, don’t worry… the kid was white.) Back in February, teenager Deven Guilford was pulled over in Mulliken, located in Eaton County, Michigan. The cause for the stop was the fact that Guilford had flashed his high beams at a cop coming in the opposite direction, so we’re not exactly talking about an international crime spree here. But upon being approached by Officer Jonathan Frost...

    DETROIT - A prosecutor has declined to charge an Immigration and Customs agent for the fatal shooting of a 20-year-old Detroit man. Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said Wednesday that agent Mitchell Quinns actions against Terrance Kellom earlier this year were justified by self-defense. Police said Kellom lunged at Quinn with a hammer before he was shot in his father's west side home on April 27. His father, Kevin Kellom, disputed that account, saying his son was escorted down the stairs by officers and was shot as he was kneeling. My son was assassinated in my face. I will never...

    Dash cam video of a traffic stop provided the world with another piece of evidence Thursday in a fatal police shooting. It showed no indication of any physical or verbal threats before the driver bolts and the officer chases after him. The video, released Thursday by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, shows what begins as a seemingly routine stop for a broken tail light. The officer, Michael Slager, approaches the used Mercedes-Benz driven by Walter Lamer Scott, and asks for license and registration. There's a brief exchange, and the officer returns to his cruiser. Scott then takes off running.

According to Sacramento's KCRA, he was "sent back in to Mexico in 1997 and again in 2001." The 1997 deportation was the result of "conviction in Arizona...on charges of possession of narcotics for sale." He was arrested stateside in 2001 as well.
