    A judge on Dec. 8 released graphic video showing Daniel Shaver crawling on his hands and knees and begging for his life before he was shot and killed. The shooting, by Philip “Mitch” Brailsford, then an officer with the Mesa Police Department, occurred after officers responded to a call about a man allegedly pointing a rifle out of a fifth-floor window at a La Quinta Inn. The graphic video, which was released after a jury on Thursday acquitted the officer of murder and manslaughter charges, stoked outrage on social media and renewed calls for reforms in law enforcement.

  • The Police Murder of Daniel Shaver

    If you have the stomach for it, I want you to watch one of the most outrageous and infuriating videos I’ve ever seen. It shows the police shooting of Daniel Shaver in Mesa, Arizona. He was crawling on his hands and knees, crying, and begging police not to shoot him. An officer shot him anyway: The Washington Post’s account is decent, but you have to watch the video truly grasp the strangeness of the requests: In fact, the Post actually sugarcoats the encounter. At one point an officer tells him “do not put your hands down for any reason,” even...

    Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was found not guilty of murder in the death of San Francisco woman Kate Steinle, but a grand jury has other plans for the controversial defendant, indicting him on new charges. In a press release, officials revealed that a federal grand jury indicted Garcia Zarate Tuesday afternoon on being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, and for being an illegally present alien in possession of a firearm and ammunition. Officials said the indictment "merely alleges that a crime has been committed and Garcia-Zarate, like all defendants, is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond...

    A Cottonwood Shores man whose family was targeted by a gunman driving along RM 1431 in Burnet County on Thursday night said he disarmed and beat unconscious the man aiming at his wife and son. In an interview with the American-Statesman on Saturday, Johnny Henderson said he and his family are shaken but unhurt after the attack, which ended after an off-duty police officer shot and wounded the gunman and Henderson jumped him. Henderson broke his hand in the ordeal. Henderson said the family has no idea what provoked the attack, which seemed to be tied to road rage. Authorities...

    The bodies are piling up among survivors of the Las Vegas shooting.  In less than 2 months, at least five survivors have died suddenly. The latest is a victim of a hit and run. Roy McClellan, 52, was killed when a Chevrolet Camaro ran into him and sped away in a hit and run. KSNV reports: The crash happened Nov. 17 on Homestead and Highway 160 in Pahrump.

    There are simply too many targets for police to be able to guard everyone. And even when they are in the right place at the right time, an officer’s uniform is like a neon sign saying, “Shoot me first.” It’s also not realistic to keep terrorists and criminals from getting weapons. The war on guns has been as much of a failure as the war on drugs. Terrorists can also resort to homemade bombs, and have lately made a habit of using vehicles as weapons. What happens when background checks on gun purchases inevitably fail to stop these killers from...

    On Thursday, I reported on Baltimore police officer Sean Suiter, who was shot and killed just one day before he was to testify against eight Baltimore Gun Trace Task Force police officers who were indicted for shaking down citizens and conspiring with drug dealers. Now, we're finding out that Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis was not accurate when he said that Suiter was with his partner at the time of the shooting. In fact, his partner was off for the day, according to records. John Vibes at The Free Thought Project writes: “The evidence refutes the notion that detective Suiter’s partner was...

    Just one day before he was scheduled to testify before a grand jury in a case in which eight Baltimore Gun Trace Task Force police officers had been indicted for shaking down citizens and conspiring with drug dealers, a Baltimore police officer was shot and killed with his own service weapon. Homicide detective Sean Suiter was informed by federal agents that he was not the target of an investigation, but that he would be testifying before the grand jury. However, before he could testify, he was shot and killed while performing an investigation of a triple homicide that occurred just days before...

    Attorneys who filed one of the first lawsuits after the Oct. 1 mass shooting that killed 58 concert-goers and left hundreds injured on the Las Vegas Strip filed four new negligence cases Monday on behalf of more than 450 victims. This time, however, Houston-based lawyers Chad Pinkerton and Mo Aziz filed the cases in Los Angeles against companies including MGM Resorts International, the corporate owner of both the Mandalay Bay resort and the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert venue. Pinkerton said the intent was to get the cases before a jury less likely to be influenced by the size and...

    Las Vegas has suffered in the wake of the deadly shooting from the Mandalay Bay. In the eight weeks before a gunman (or gunmen) killed 58 innocent people and injured 546 more, air bookings to Vegas were already down 7% for domestic flights and 2% for international flights on a year over year basis. But the truth has suffered the most in the aftermath of this shattering calamity. After the shootings, things naturally got even worse. In the three weeks after the mysterious concert shooting, domestic bookings for flights were down 21% and down 16% for international flights in, according...

    Yesterday another mass shooting occurred; this time in California. The shooter killed four people and injured at least ten; he was shot and killed by police responding. It is unfortunate that an almost scripted response will begin on each side, neither useful, both distracting, and ultimately, both used to fuel hatred of the political opponents. Here’s how it will go down. The leftists media will make a huge issue about the shooters race (white guy for those not following the news), and proceed to conflate this with a series of assumptions.

    CORNING, Calif. - Witnesses tell a chilling account of two gunman who opened fire at Rancho Tehama Elementary School near Corning Tuesday morning. Coy Ferreira, whose daughter is a kindergarten student, was dropping his daughter off for class just before 8 a.m. when he heard what sounded like a firecracker. A school secretary ran out and yelled for the kids to get in the classrooms because someone was shooting at the school. Ferreira said he ran into a classroom with 14 students. He said the series of shots came through the classroom windows, hitting one student. Ferreria said a young...
