    Deputy U.S. Marshals from the District of Arizona arrested 140 people in August and September during a violent gang enforcement operation. Deputies executed “Operation Snake Eyes” in the Phoenix metropolitan area. U.S. Marshals Service deputies carried out a six-week operation beginning on August 10 in the Phoenix area to target violent fugitives and gang members, reported. Operation Snake Eyes (OSE) led to the arrest of 140 fugitives, including 51 gang members, and the seizure of a large number of firearms and cash. “One issue that most people will agree with while debating police issues, is that those who intentionally...

    As violence fluctuated this summer in Baltimore, the recent week in September left at least 45 people shot throughout the city — 12 of them dead since last Sunday, according to Baltimore police data.

The latest shooting occurred overnight, around 12:24 a.m. in 700...

    Anti-violence and anti-police, but manages to hang with an armed asshole who shot him in the absence of police. How very droll. We used to tell stories like this on occasion about gangbangers firing blindly over their shoulders as they ran away to disbelieving family members who couldn't understand how so many shots were fired without hits and then a few innocents managed to catch bullets. This is exactly how and why.

    Criminal gangs have swept through so much of the educational system in England that staff at one-third of the country’s secondary schools believe gangs have groomed pupils, a report has found. A poll of teachers at almost 1,300 English schools found that drug dealers and other criminal gangs are controlling pupils as young as eight, with the rot spreading throughout the country and not just limited to urban areas. According to an analysis conducted by The Times - which covered schools with approximately 500,000 pupils - over 60 per cent of secondary schools have been forced to search pupils with...

    (AFP) - A shootout outside a funeral parlour left 14 people wounded Tuesday in Chicago, as President Donald Trump threatens to send federal agents to a handful of US cities led by Democratic mayors. The incident started when occupants of a vehicle "began firing at attendees of a funeral. At that time the attendees of the funeral exchanged fire," Chicago deputy police superintendent Eric Carter told reporters. Shootings have become breathtakingly normal this summer across the United States. A total of 63 people were shot and 12 killed over the weekend in Chicago in ongoing gun violence. Carter said 14...

    Washington (AFP) -- A five-month old baby boy struck in the head by a bullet in a drive-by shooting in Chicago Thursday became the youngest victim yet of gun violence battering US cities already hobbled by the coronavirus pandemic. Shootings have become breathtakingly normal this summer across the United States. Hundreds have been killed including dozens of children, and thousands wounded. The shootings have been stoked by the social and economic hardships of the COVID-19 pandemic, pullbacks by police under attack for abuse of African Americans, the hot summer's pull on people to the streets, and by social media-fuelled gang...

    In the absence of elected leadership and in the face of police standing by and watching looting in Chicago, Latin gangs are protecting their local businesses and running would be looters out of their neighborhoods. It’s hard to fault them for it, but do we really want street gangs acting as law enforcement? Because that’s what we can expect in cities that are considering abolishing their police departments—remember, the leftist and anarchist protestors want the police abolished, it’s the political wing, the Democratic Party, that substituted “defund” and is now walking even that back because it’s so vastly unpopular among...

Now you can add to that the creation of a militia commando force by Black Lives Matter forces who will patrol the inner city black neighborhoods and fight the police for control. Sounds like...
