    TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A police K-9 in Michigan recently had himself a “ruff” day after he was accused of stealing his owner’s lunch.

    A Minnesota police chief was forced to apologize for posting an image of a 'thin blue line' flag to his department's Facebook page last week, after community members aired complaints labeling the symbol a representation of 'extremist views.' The flag, a black and white rendition of the American flag with a blue stripe running just under the stars, represents men and women in blue standing as a line between law and order. However, more recently, the symbol has been deemed divisive by some, as its meaning has shifted from one of nonpartisan support to one synonymous with the far-right

    Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that the Senate should defund law enforcement refusing to enforce gun laws. Anchor Dana Bash said, “Five months, it’s been that long since the president signed a bipartisan bill. You helped negotiate it. It incentivized states to implement red flag laws. Virginia and Colorado, where these mass shootings took place over the last ten days or so, they already have red flag laws in place, and it did not prevent those mass shootings.”

    Republican gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin said Saturday that he’s gotten an earful from NYPD cops who are furious that their union donated $25,000 to Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul’s campaign — while not giving the tough-on-crime candidate a cent in the tight race. “We have heard from a lot of NYPD officers who are pissed off [after] learning that their money went to Kathy Hochul, who is pandering to these pro-criminal allies in the state Legislature,” the Long Island congressman told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto. Zeldin had been questioned about a Post report on the controversial donation made by the New...

    Years ago I was writing about blacks and Democrats and looked at the impact Rudy Giuliani made in New York City. Over the course of his tenure from 1994 – 2002 there were 3,440 fewer black murder victims in the city than there might have been had New York simply experienced the average nationwide crime decline between 1994 & 2002. “That’s 3,440 families that did not lose a son, a father, a breadwinner, or a role model. 3,440 black men still alive to take care of and support their families…” Saving 3,400 black lives and keeping 3,400 families intact didn’t...

    Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz slammed House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s “Commitment to America” agenda in an exclusive interview with the Daily Caller on Friday, focusing specifically on one bullet point that suggests the GOP should subsidize the hiring of 200,000 new police officers through recruitment bonuses. ... “So if you see, like, the third bullet point in whatever this is suggests that the federal government needs to fund incentives for 200,000 new law enforcement. I do not believe in the federal government being excessively entangled in state and local law enforcement. It is not practical,” Gaetz told the Caller....

    Fox News host Jesse Watters reflected on the redacted affidavit over the FBI’s raid on former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate on "Jesse Watters Primetime." [cut] Well, according to the affidavit, there appears to be two major concerns: where the documents were stored and how they were stored. The affidavit states: "I believe that the storage room and other spaces within the premises are not currently authorized locations for the storage of classified information or NDI." NDI is national defense information. So let me get this straight: Trump has some Trump administration documents locked up in the storage room of...
