    BALTIMORE (AP) — Since the Baltimore Police Department started overhauling its practices through a series of court-ordered reforms in 2017, officers have become significantly less likely to use force against members of the public, such as brandishing a service weapon, deploying a stun gun or striking an uncooperative suspect into compliance. But the agency still needs to improve its ability to hold wayward officers accountable and address a dire staffing shortage, according to testimony Thursday in federal court in Baltimore. With a mix of praise and admonishment, the discussion focused on recent developments in a yearslong effort to enact sweeping...

    A top adviser for Stacey Abrams' voting rights nonprofit defended anti-cop activists who set a police car ablaze and smashed windows while protesting the death of an environmental activist this past weekend in Atlanta. Marisa Pyle, a senior rapid response manager at Abrams' Fair Fight Action, who also worked as a senior manager for Abrams' One Georgia leadership committee during her most recent failed Georgia gubernatorial run, rushed to defend the anti-police protesters and the ensuing chaos. "You cannot commit violence against a window or a car. Killing a human? Now that, that is violence," Pyle wrote on Twitter this...

    Philadelphia is experiencing a crime wave like no other in its over 300-year history. Theft, muggings, assaults, carjackings, and homicides are all plaguing the city's communities. And, while these stories continue to humiliate Philadelphia, Democratic government officials continue to sit idly by, silently giving their consent to the policies that have turned the city's jails into doors. But now, the criminals may have committed the ultimate sin - stealing a car from a player on its beloved football team, the Philadelphia Eagles. PHILADELPHIA PROSECUTOR SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE Maybe this will finally cause Democrats to start taking crime seriously...

  • Wow, LA Sheriff Says Mass Shooter Didn't Use An Assault Rifle, He Used An Assault Pistol

    Sheriff Luna clarified that the weapon used in the attack was not an "assault rifle." Rather, Luna said the suspect used “a magazine-fed semiautomatic assault pistol … that had an extended large-capacity magazine attached to it.” The term "Assault Pistol" seems to be a recent addition to the gun control propaganda, and it is unclear what exactly it refers to. The gun control lobby has previously used the term "Assault Rifle" and "Assault Weapon" to describe and demonize certain types of firearms, but these terms have been criticized by the gun community for being misleading and not accurate. It seems...

    If your Hyundai or Kia uses a physical ignition key, it can be stolen with relative ease. As we've reported, a USB cable is all that's necessary to get away with a new car. It's a costly problem for police in cities such as Columbus, Ohio, and Denver. Insurers in these regions and others have now had enough. Insurance giants State Farm and Progressive are now refusing to insure many vehicles sold by the two Korean auto brands in those cities and others now. In a statement to The Drive, Progressive confirmed that it was no longer issuing new insurance...

    One person she stole from described the woman as nicely dressed but smelling “heavily of body odor,” according to Houston Police. Coleman’s crime spree started Nov. 15 when investigators said she approached Katie Otten, an employee at Galleria Houston, in the mall parking lot and demanded money, reported KTRK. The thief had her hand in her pocket, making Otten think Coleman was armed. Otten told the Houston station. “She forced her way into my vehicle and was like, ‘OK, take me to an ATM.'” The hijacker then forced the terrified woman to drive to multiple ATMs before making a final...

    As members of Congress debate whether lawmakers and their spouses should play the stock market, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband, Paul Pelosi, a venture capitalist, continues to regularly buy and sell stocks and stock options. Pelosi has access to confidential intelligence and the power to affect - with words or actions - the fortunes of companies in which her husband invests and trades. When asked in December 2021 whether members of Congress should even be allowed to trade stocks, Pelosi answered in the affirmative. "We are a free-market economy. They should be able to participate in that," she said. This...
