    The Federalist ^ | January 28, 2028 | Dennis Weisman
    Proposals to defund law enforcement fail the cost-benefit test and will likely increase avoidable deaths while lowering the overall standard of living.In Philadelphia in January, 25-year old Milan Loncar — a recent Temple University graduate and husband to be — was walking his dog when he was brutally gunned down in the streets of Philadelphia, the victim of an armed robbery that he did not resist. He died while still holding the leash of his rescue dog. The gunman had a violent criminal history and should have been in jail the night of Loncar’s murder, but he had been released...

  • Left-Wing Activist Arrested For Role In Capitol Riots, Urged Protesters To ‘Get This S*** Burned’

    John Earle Sullivan, a 26-year-old left-wing activist and “known agitator,” has been arrested for his role in the Capitol riots after he was caught on film shouting “it’s our house” and “we got to get this s**t burned.” Sullivan, who has previously taken part in Black Lives Matter protests, told multiple media outlets prior to his arrest that he was simply on-site to ‘document’ the events at the Capitol. In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper after the riot, the left-wing agitator “implied that he was passively observing the situation as it unfolded.” Sullivan told Fox News last week that...
  • Here’s why Chicago’s unofficial police blog ‘Second City Cop’ went dark

    CHICAGO — Most Chicago cops don’t talk to reporters. They don’t trust politicians. And they certainly have a lot of opinions. It’s why for the past 15 years the “Second City Cop” police blog has been must-read for many Chicagoans who want to have a better understanding about crime and justice in their city. It’s also why the blog has bene a thorn in the side of police brass for years and there have been various attempts to identify the operator. When the chronicle of cop life disappeared from public view on the internet a few days ago some took...

    I may be going with a group to Washington, D.C., for the 6th. I expect a crowd of over 1M people there. Busses are being leased all over the country, all headed the same direction. I just hope we leave early enough to avoid the traffic snarls we’re certain to run into. I also hope everyone who goes understands how enticing a target that many patriots in one place makes for those who are trying to steal this country away from us. We’ll have to trust the security forces there to keep us safe, but I’m also aware that the...

They were taken to hospital condition unknown. This just happened a few minutes ago.

    ..... Pratt is the only surviving Australian winner of the George Cross — the country’s highest civilian award for bravery. The equivalent award in the newer Australian honours system is the Cross of Valour, an award that has been made to only five Australians. Pratt, a 21-year-old policeman and married just three months, was on his way to have a haircut when he earned his medal. He drove his own car, on a day off and unarmed, into the front door of a Clifton Hill bank when he saw three armed and masked bandits enter the bank on June 4,...

    Police are on the hunt for at least two gunmen who fired a barrage of shots on the Camden, New Jersey, home of two police officers and their newborn – with six of the bullets penetrating the structure in the “targeted” attack, according to reports.

    One of the residents had unwisely invited Robert Thompson, 47, to stay at the apartment he shared with his girlfriend. He did this despite Thompson having a lengthy rap sheet and a history of criminal behavior. True to form, Thompson quickly began causing trouble of an alarming kind, including exposing himself to some young girls, throwing a rock through someone’s window and threatening people (including his hosts) with violence. Understandably, the apartment’s tenant, Leander Mccoy, called the police. But after arriving and questioning Thompson, the police simply left, saying they would “seek a warrant” to deal with the matter. The...

    CLACKAMAS, Ore. – The sheriffs of Clackamas and Washington County say they will not send staff to help with protests in Portland after Oregon Governor Kate Brown unveiled a plan to address the violence at protests.... Clackamas Co. Sheriff Craig Roberts said the governor didn’t approach his office before rolling out the plan, intended to address the violence and arson while also protecting free speech. “Increasing law enforcement resources in Portland will not solve the nightly violence and now, murder,” the sheriff said. “The only way to make Portland safe again, is to support a policy that holds offenders accountable...

    PLEASANTON, TX- Portland, Oregon has become the poster child for the wacky, hard-left Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioting across the country, which is now well into its third month. In some ways, the antics in Portland closely resembles the 1980’s movie starring Kurt Russell, “Escape From New York.” In the movie, New York City has been taken over by criminals and gangs (not unlike what is going on in Portland or in much of the country for that matter) with walls being erected around the city to keep the bad guys in and the good guys out... ...

  • How Cops Can Secretly Track Your Phone A guide to stingray surveillance technology, which may have been deployed at recent protests.(good!)

    Stingrays are routinely used to target suspects in drug and other criminal investigations, but activists also believe the devices were used during protests against the Dakota Access pipeline, and against Black Lives Matter protesters over the last three months. The Justice Department requires federal agents to obtain a probable cause warrant to use the technology in criminal cases, but there is a carve-out for national security. Given that President Donald Trump has referred to protesters as “terrorists,” and that paramilitary-style officers from the Department of Homeland Security have been deployed to the streets of Portland, Oregon, it’s conceivable that surveillance...

    A far-left, antifa-supporting paramilitary group in Columbia, SC, openly advocates for the use of “deadly force” against law enforcement personnel to “protect the people” from what they call government “tyranny.” In a recent Facebook post, the militia group, Civil Defense Corps, suggested that federal agents should be shot in the face, Far Left Watch has learned. According to its website, the Civil Defense Corps is actively recruiting “former infantry” to serve as armed “Reserve Units” to “investigate hate crimes and threats against minorities as well as the LGBTQ+ community.” The local media refers to the heavily armed Civil Defense Corps...

    All in all, the 'moms' and 'dad' march in Portland last night can only be described as a March Of Shame. Not only did they not grab their 'kids' by the collar and march them home, they actively participated in the vandalism. At first the march by 'moms' and 'dads' to 'protect' their innocent little kids from the big bad federal marshals looked promising for a peaceful night, until about 10:30 when the mom/dad group was suckered into marching around the block. This gave their blac bloc clad 'children' the time they needed to gather at the courthouse. The yoots...
