Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown is speaking out about anti-cop rhetoric in the wake of a shooting that left one police officer dead and another in critical condition.

Brown made the comments in a press conference announcing that three individuals have been arrested and charged in connection with the shooting: two brothers who were allegedly directly involved with the shooting and a third person who is suspected of supplying the brothers with an illegal weapon.

“’I think that the people of Chicago need to pray, not only for the recovery of our officer who is fighting for his life’ but also for other officers on the street doing the job, Brown said, lamenting what he called low support for the police from the public and members of the media, who often focus on police reform issues and not acts of heroism,” the Chicago Tribune said late Monday.

“It’s past time to stop this, you know, imbalanced treatment of police officers here in Chicago and everywhere in this country,” Brown added. “We’re flawed. Just like the media gallery is flawed. Just like every profession in our country is flawed. But they go down dark alleys none of you would go down to protect you.”

Brown said that investigators do not yet know why Officer Ella French and her partner pulled over an SUV on Chicago’s south side Friday night around 9 pm.

Body came footage “shows the three occupants were out or in the process of being taken out of the vehicle when [first suspect] Eric Morgan ran, leading one officer to chase and apprehend him nearby,” according to Chicago police sources who spoke to the outlet. “The second suspect, Emonte Morgan, pulled away from French and made a move back toward the inside of the vehicle. As the officers tried to apprehend him, he allegedly fired a gun, striking both officers.”

Morgan was wounded in the altercation. Both officers were also wounded. French died of her injuries at a nearby hospital. Her partner is still recovering but his condition is reportedly improving.

“Emonte Morgan, 21, is charged with first-degree murder in Saturday’s fatal shooting of 29-year-old officer Ella French, as well as attempted murder and other charges,” Fox News added. “His brother, 22-year-old Eric Morgan, faces charges of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and obstruction of justice.”

Federal prosecutors have also charged an “Indiana man who allegedly told investigators he was in a relationship with one of the brothers, with straw-purchasing the gun that was ultimately used to kill French,” per the Tribune. The suspect gave the weapon to one of the Morgan brothers after buying it under “false pretenses” in Indiana.

French was the first Chicago Police Officer killed in the line of duty since 2018, and the first female cop to lose her life on the job since the late 1990s.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has been largely silent on the incident since Monday, after a group of officers, standing watch over their colleague outside his hospital room, turned their back on the mayor when she paid a visit to the recovering officer.

“Lightfoot was given the cold shoulder by CPD rank and file about midnight Saturday at the University of Chicago Medical Center when she approached them on the 7th floor as they grappled with the shootings of two fellow officers,” the Chicago Sun-Times reported, per The Daily Wire. “Just moments before about 30 officers turned their backs on the mayor, Lightfoot tried to talk to the male officer’s father, who himself is a retired Chicago police officer. He clearly wanted nothing to do with Lightfoot, according to two sources who were there. The father excoriated the mayor and blamed her for what had happened.”

WATCH: Minneapolis Police Chief Blasts Anti-Police Sentiment After 3-Year-Old Shot

www.dailywire.com

Jon Brown

The Minneapolis police chief asserted over the weekend that the police are not the biggest threat to the safety of the city after a three-year-old was reportedly shot Friday.

“The biggest threat to public safety in our city, and particularly to our African-American community, is not the police,” Chief Medaria Arradondo said. “We have an epidemic right now of unequivocal gun violence particularly in our African-American communities. And that must stop.”

WATCH:

As Alpha News MN reported:

The chief’s remarks came during a press conference on Saturday afternoon regarding the shooting, which took place on Friday night on the 3300 block of Emerson Avenue North in Minneapolis.

Police were called to the address about 9:47 p.m. on a report of a child being shot. Initial police dispatches indicated the child was 10, but information was later updated stating the child was three years old.

The chief said when officers arrived at the location of the shooting, they observed that the child had suffered a critical gunshot wound. Officers made the decision to transport the child to the hospital in a squad car instead of waiting for the ambulance, which was reported to be three or four minutes away.

Chief Arradondo praised the officers for their quick action and said they “made the right choice.” He said had the officers not made the decision to transport, he could very well be reporting the death of another child in Minneapolis.

A group of police chiefs from the Minneapolis suburbs warned Monday that gun violence has recently surged to unprecedented levels. “I’ve never seen the gun violence like it is,” Brooklyn Park Police Chief Craig Enevoldsen told local Fox 9.

“Enevoldsen and police chiefs from Crystal, Maple Grove, Plymouth, and New Hope, spoke to FOX 9 about the gun violence they are seeing in their communities,” Fox 9 reported.

“Violent crime in Hennepin County increased 24 percent in 2020 compared to 2019 and was up 36 percent in the last three months of 2020,” the outlet continued. “When you exclude Minneapolis from the calculations, violent crime in the rest of Hennepin County increased by 19 percent over the previous year.”

Minneapolis has been hemorrhaging police since the unrest that has roiled the city since the death of George Floyd in May 2020. As The Daily Wire reported:

Police officers are leaving the Minneapolis Police Department in droves because they feel “helpless” amid the city’s skyrocketing crime, according to one who left the force last year.

“This goes back before George Floyd,” former Minneapolis police officer Steve Dykstra told Fox News on Tuesday. “Since around 2015, I know the city of Minneapolis has been backpedaling, taking tools away from police to enforce the law and keep the streets safe.”

SIGN: Justice for K9 With Leg Broken from Beating During ‘Training’

Sad Belgian Malinois

ladyfreethinker.org

PETITION TARGET: Dubois County Prosecutor Anthony D. Quinn

A police service K-9 named Odin suffered a gruesome leg fracture when his handler struck him for “not properly focusing” during a training session with other K-9 teams in Dubois County, Ind., according to local authorities. 

Odin, a 5-year-old Belgian Malinois who had been with the Indiana Police Department for four years, had to go through surgery for his injury, and he might never return to work.

State Trooper Dustan Rubenacker was charged with striking a law enforcement animal after police determined he had allegedly used “unreasonable discipline” that injured Odin,  the Indiana State Police said in a press release.  Rubenacker is on paid administrative leave while he awaits a July 6 court date. Meanwhile, an internal investigation is ongoing.

This case follows a series of recent shocking animal abuses committed against police dogs, including an incident in Vacaville, Calif.,  where Gus the K-9 was punched repeatedly in the face and a scene in Salisbury, N.C., where police dog Zuul was slammed into an SUV.

Violence against animals is inexcusable and should never be used as a training method.

Sign this petition urging Dubois County Prosecutor Anthony D. Quinn to prosecute the perpetrator to the fullest extent of the law, setting the example that animal cruelty will not be tolerated — including among law enforcement.

Report: House Democrats’ Budget Slashes Border Enforcement Funding By A Billion Dollars

www.dailywire.com

By Emily Zanotti

House Democrats have issued a budget proposal that includes a shocking slash to border enforcement, with a billion dollars slashed from Customs and Border Protection (CBP_, among other notable cuts.

Bloomberg Law reported Tuesday that House Democrats are pursuing even deeper cuts to the immigration enforcement budget than the Biden White House, which already proposed a significant reduction in CBP and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) funding levels.

The cuts appear in the House’s draft fiscal 2022 appropriations bill for the Department of Homeland Security, released this week.

Bloomberg Law reports that the Democrats want stiff cuts, largely to those departments charged with enforcing border regulations and handling illegal immigration, despite the record number of illegal immigrants encountered by Customs and Border Protection in April and May — jumps over already record levels.

If the draft legislation is passed, the “CBP would get $14.1 billion in net discretionary appropriations, almost a billion dollars less than the current fiscal year and a half-billion dollars less than the White House requested,” per Bloomberg, and the “U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement would get $1.55 million less than fiscal 2021, while U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services would get a $346.7 million increase, which would help address processing backlogs.”

The border wall would face the biggest cut. The measure, Bloomberg said, will “rescind more than $2 billion from prior year appropriations for border barrier construction; it proposes no funding for additional Border Patrol agents or the border wall.”

Border governor, Texas Republican Greg Abbott, has proposed filling the hole left by ending construction on a wall across the southern border by building a Texas “border barrier” on the American side of the Texas-Mexico border. Such a project would, theoretically, allow Texas to bypass restrictions against state authorities enforcing federal law; when an illegal immigrant jumped a Texas border-barrier, the state suggests, Texas officials could arrest that immigrant for trespass and other state-level crimes.

There are some increases in the proposed DHS budget.

“The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency would get an added $397.4 million,” Bloomberg notes, citing threats to key infrastructure following the Colonial Pipeline hack, and  the “Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties would get $8.1 million more than fiscal 2021, $3.5 million more than White House requested.”

The GOP is already concerned that CBP is underfunded, particularly in light of an ongoing border crisis. In committee meetings earlier this month, House Republicans “grilled” DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over what they deemed a critical lack of funding for border protection amidst some of the highest rates of illegal immigration in two decades, per Fox News.

“Mayorkas was testifying at the House Homeland Security Committee about the Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 budget request for DHS, which he said would include $665 million in investments toward modernizing land ports of entry and $47 million to invest in detection capabilities in addition to investments in border surveillance technology,” the outlet reported.

Mayorkas was asked by Ranking Member John Katko, R-N.Y., if the request contains more hiring for more Border Patrol agents.

“It does not, we have vacancies now and we are focused on recruiting and hiring additional personnel,” Mayorkas responded.

Katko followed up by pointing to an “alarming” retirement rate among agents.

“We have a 21-year high in Border Patrol agents being pulled from all over the country to deal with the crisis at the border, and it seems to me it’d be a good time for us to contemplate pushing up Border Patrol,” he said.

CBP had more than 180,000 illegal immigrant encounters at the border last month. June numbers are expected out next week.

D.C. Police disbanding Mounted Unit

Tuesday's Horse

Disbanding of horse mounted police units continues across the U.S. The horse mounted unit in the nation’s Capitol is the latest casualty.

WJLA reports:

The Horse Mounted Unit of the Metropolitan Police Department is being disbanded, D.C. police confirmed.

A spokesperson for the department said the changes are a result of recent budget cuts by D.C. City Council.

The D.C. Horse Mounted Unit had four horses and four officers

A petition on Change.org that aims to support the MPD Horse Unit is seeking 1,500 signatures.

According to the petition, the MPD Horse Unit was established in 2002 and has been a huge success with the citizens of Washington, D.C. The horse unit reportedly costs $70,000 a year to run.


This amount is an immeasurable amount to pay compared to all of the good will that we’ve displayed as part of the community events, block parties, parades, crowd control, high-visibility…

“I have a right to make sure that my home is secure” says Chicago Mayor Lightfoot Of Police Presence

Caitlin Bassett

The Chicago Police Department has banned protesters from Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s residential block.

Officers are to arrest anyone protesting near her residence. Police presence has been heavy, barricades have been established, and IDs are even being checked to allow residents in while keeping potentially violent protesters out. https://lockerdome.com/lad/13085152993555558?pubid=ld-2798-4453&pubo=https%3A%2F%2Fdavidharrisjr.com&rid=&width=604

Lightfoot has defended the police actions which protect her home, referencing threats that have been made against her, her wife, and their home on a daily basis.

“I think that residents of this city, understanding the nature of the threats that we are receiving on a daily basis…understand I have a right to make sure that my home is secure,” said Lightfoot.

RAW VIDEO: Man Shot Dead After Charging At Cop With 2 Sai-Style Knives – Breaking911

HomeU.S. RAW VIDEO: Man Shot Dead After Charging At Cop With 2 Sai-Style…

August 6, 2020

Sheboygan, Wisconsin — (Scroll Down For Video) — The Sheboygan County district attorney has determined that the use of deadly force was reasonable and no charges will be filed in the officer-involved death of Kevan Ruffin Jr. on July 2. At 5:50:32 AM, the Sheboygan County Dispatch Center received a 911 call reporting a disturbance involving weapons near S. 15th Street and Illinois Avenue in the City of Sheboygan. Video surveillance from the nearby business showed that prior to Officer Pray’s arrival there appeared to have been a disturbance between two people to the west of S. 15th Street between Illinois Avenue and Indiana Avenue. The disturbance was at approximately 5:50 AM according to the video. There was some pushing before one person ran towards a building and the other person, later identified as Kevan Ruffin, walked eastbound down an alley while holding onto something in each of his hands. At 5:52 AM, a Sheboygan Police Department squad car operated by Officer Pray pulled up next to a silver car at the intersection of Indiana Avenue and S. 15th Street.

As soon as the squad car traveled down S. 15th Street, Ruffin started to walk towards the squad car, although he was on the opposite side of the road. Officer Pray’s body camera recorded him exiting his squad car and then saying, “How you doin’ Ruffin?” and “Are you fine this morning?” He later said, “Can you just have a seat for me?” Ruffin was looking at Officer Pray but walking along the curb line on the opposite side of the road. Officer Pray took approximately 2 to 3 steps toward Ruffin. Ruffin began to walk towards Officer Pray. Officer Pray said, “Ah, ah, ah can you just have a seat for me?” He drew his Electronic Control Device (ECD), commonly referred to as a taser, and activated it. Video surveillance from the business showed Officer Pray exit his squad car, hold his hand out and begin to quickly walk backwards.The video surveillance showed Ruffin begin to walk at a faster pace toward Officer Pray. Officer Pray, as seen on the video surveillance, drew his taser as he was backing up. Ruffin began to run quickly at Officer Pray. Officer Pray was retreating backwards, away from Ruffin.

The body camera footage showed Ruffin advanced toward Officer Pray at a faster pace. Ruffin was mumbling something that was inaudible. He was also holding a Sai in his right hand, which was pointed towards Officer Pray, and another Sai in his left hand, which was pointed away from Officer Pray. Based on body camera footage, it appeared that Ruffin began to advance quicker towards Officer Pray. Officer Pray deployed his taser and began sprinting away from Ruffin. Ruffin was running at a fast pace towards Officer Pray. Evidence of the taser being deployed was found at the scene. Officer Pray’s body camera showed that he sprinted to the opposite side of the street and turned to see Ruffin sprinting towards him. Ruffin was still holding a Sai in each hand. Five seconds after deploying his taser, Officer Pray drew his duty weapon and pointed it at Ruffin. Within Officer Pray’s body camera he is heard yelling, “Step back, you will get shot.” Ruffin continued to run towards Officer Pray. The body camera footage showed that Officer Pray continued to run backwards and fired 3 rounds toward Ruffin, who was still running towards Officer Pray with a Sai in each hand.about:blank

Officer Pray began to sprint back toward the opposite side of the road and fired 3 more rounds while running away and 1 additional shot as he turned back around. After the 6 shots were fired, Ruffin was still running at Officer Pray, which is when the seventh round was fired.

Officer Pray radioed dispatch, “shots fired, shots fired” and “send all units.” The video surveillance showed the same interaction. Specifically, it showed Officer Pray begin to run in a circular motion toward the opposite side of the road. At 5:53 AM in the surveillance video, Officer Pray threw his taser to the ground and drew his hand gun. Officer Pray turned facing Ruffin, still moving backwards as Ruffin advanced. Officer Pray fired his hand gun. Officer Pray continued to run in a circular motion to the opposite side of the road while Ruffin followed. As Ruffin came back around towards the west side of the road he fell to the ground. Video surveillance showed a second officer arrive on scene at what video surveillance showed to be 5:54 AM. Officer Pray and the backup officer approached Ruffin at 5:55 AM. Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) was attempted, but Ruffin was later declared deceased at the scene.

Portland Man Charged with Assaulting Deputy U.S. Marshal with Explosive Device During Courthouse Protest

justice.gov

PORTLAND, Ore.—U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams announced today that Isaiah Jason Maza, Jr., 18, of Portland, has been charged by criminal complaint with assaulting a federal officer with a dangerous weapon and willfully damaging government property during protests at the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse on July 22, 2020.

According to court documents, in the early morning hours of July 22, 2020, a group of individuals gathered in an exterior entryway of the Hatfield Federal Courthouse. Several members of the group, including Maza, began removing plywood attached to the front of the building to protect its damaged glass façade. After the group successfully removed the plywood sheeting, Maza made multiple attempts to kick in the window, struck it with a metal object, and repeatedly pounded on it with what appeared to be a hammer.

Shortly thereafter, a number of people successfully removed the entire wooden structure protecting the courthouse entryway and an unknown individual broke one of the windows. After this breach, Maza walked toward the building carrying a cylindrical object. Maza then appeared to light a fuse connected to the object and place it inside the broken window. A short time later, the object exploded in close proximity to law enforcement officers exiting the building through the broken window. A deputy U.S. Marshal sustained injuries to both his legs as a result of the blast.

On July 31, 2020, deputy U.S. Marshals spotted Maza less than one block from the courthouse. Maza ran from the deputy marshals who pursued him several blocks by foot before catching and arresting him.

Maza made his first appearance in federal court today before a U.S. Magistrate Judge and was ordered detained pending further court proceedings.

Assaulting a federal officer with a dangerous weapon is punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Willfully damaging government property is punishable by 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

This case is being jointly investigated by the FBI, the U.S. Marshals Service, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. It is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Oregon.

Criminal complaints are only accusations of a crime, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Atlanta, GA – Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard has announced seven felony charges – including murder – against former Atlanta Police Officer Garrett Rolfe who fatally shot Rayshard Brooks at Wendy’s on Friday night. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is still investigating the shooting, but Howard was quick to file charges against Rolfe. This is a blatant disregard for due process and “innocent until proven guilty.”

This was a completely justified shooting and the officers life was on the line. Now he’s being dragged through the dirt and facing murder charges for defending himself. We need to defend his rights! #JusticeForRolfe

McDonald’s Worker Charged With A Felony For Spitting In Officer’s Burger

djhjmedia.com

Of all the things that should not be affected by the cultural and political differences, is ordering food from fast-food restaurants. Anyone should be able to go order some food, at a McDonald’s, etc., and expect it will have meat, ketchup, mustard, pickles, and onions in a fresh bun.

This is not necessarily the case, as there have multiple stories of food and drink tampering by restaurant employees who, after identifying the order was placed by a police officer, inserts a tampon is their frappuccino, bleach in their coffee or spits in their hamburger.

Here is a story out of Bakersfield, CA which shows there are consequences for breaking the law and messing with people’s food.

Minneapolis City Council Unanimously Votes To Get Rid Of Police

davidharrisjr.com

The Minneapolis city council voted unanimously to do away with the police and replace then with “safety officers.”

The safety officers will carry no weapons but will be carrying a huge target in the middle of their backs. They won’t even be allowed to tote a knife to a gunfight.

My guess is that the new safety officers will attempt to reason with the criminals and try to get them to join in on a resounding rendition of Kumbaya.

Hand out free tickets to midnight basketball games and the handing out of daisies.

The council did not make the move law or even possible over the next fifty years. They did it with a nonbinding resolution that isn’t worth the paper it is written on.

A resolution just means it’s something that you may try to do in the future but does not actually require you to do ever.

Five council members said in the resolution:

“The murder of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, by Minneapolis police officers is a tragedy that shows that no amount of reforms will prevent lethal violence and abuse by some members of the Police Department against members of our community, especially Black people and people of color.”

From The Daily Caller

Protesters booed Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey on Saturday after he wouldn’t say he would abolish the city’s police department.

Protesters began chanting, “Go home Jacob, go home! Go home Jacob, go home!”

“Go home,” protesters yell at Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey because he said he doesn’t want to defund the police
pic.twitter.com/00MIM60P5L

— Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) June 6, 2020

This comes after the words “Defund The Police” were painted in the streets of Washington, D.C., next to the words “Black Lives Matter.” Some Democrats have called for the defunding of law enforcement since Floyd’s death.

Floyd died while in Minneapolis police custody after an officer put his knee into the back of his neck for over eight minutes while he was handcuffed and on the ground.
