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.

Petition · United States Supreme Court: Justice for Atlanta Officer Garrett Rolfe! · Change.org

Bryse Sunderlin started this petition to United States Supreme Court and 5 others

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.

Teenage Girl Who Creates Teddy Bears For Children of Fallen Officers Receiving Death Threats

by Rich WelshJune 23, 2020 in Politics00 SHARES0 VIEWS Share on FacebookShare on Twitter

Megan created Blue Line Bears when she was only 14-years-old.  Being the daughter of a cop, Megan started taking the uniforms of fallen officers and creatively turned them into keepsake teddy bears for kids who’ve lost a parent who was a law enforcement officer.https://lockerdome.com/lad/11388557595982694?pubid=ld-4383-9197&pubo=https%3A%2F%2Fdjhjmedia.com&rid=&width=617

This is a sweet kid to be thinking of other children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.

Now, thanks to the Marxists,  Megan is getting death threats because of her support of the law enforcement community.

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

— 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.

I’ve prayed about this for the past few days and decided it was finally time…

I’m done. I’m done. I. Am. Done… For the last week our family has been through hell. (other police families know exactly what I’m talking about) I’ve never been one to stir anything up on social media. I’d rather talk one-on-one, but this is absolutely crazy right now! I’m not posting to argue or change your opinion (I know I can’t do that on fb). I’m breaking my silence to say that the portrayal of Police on TV is not right! It’s not what is actually happening on the streets! And the overall disrespect and hate being thrown at them is unbelievable! STOP IT!!!!

The Police are just as saddened by George Floyd’s death as anyone.
