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…

Five Teenagers Awarded Medals of Heroism for Saving Deputy’s Life

Five Teenagers Awarded Medals of Heroism for Saving Deputy’s Life

Caitlin Bassett 2-3 minutes


Five teenagers were awarded the Medal of Heroism Award on Monday for actions that likely saved the life of a King County Deputy.

Deputy Elliott had been off-duty, driving her patrol car home around 1 AM on July 18th when she was flagged down at the scene of an accident involving multiple vehicles, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office. Witnesses reported that a drunk driver, who was stumbling away from the scene, had caused the accident.

When Deputy Elliott approached the man and told him he was not allowed to leave, he put up his fists in a fighting stance and began to struggle with her. At one point she was able to radio for help, but the man then grabbed Elliott’s neck and placed her in a headlock.

It was at that moment that five teenagers intervened. They had been walking by the events when they saw Deputy Elliott struggling to free herself from the headlock.

The teenagers yelled “get off of her” and pulled the suspect away from Deputy Elliott. They were able to pin him to the ground so that Deputy Elliott could handcuff him. 

“Moms and Dads, you should be proud of these kids!” wrote the King County Sheriff’s Office in a Facebook post shortly afterward. 

The suspect was arrested for felony assault of an officer and DUI, and had several other warrants for his arrest.

Deputy Elliott walked away with only scrapes and bruises.

The five boys – Darrell Swilley, Isaiha Sansaver, Dominic Sansaver, Tyran Powell, and Kai Tavares – range in ages from 16 to 19 years old. 

On Monday, August 3rd, Sheriff Mitzi G. Johanknecht and Auburn Police Chief O’Neil presented the Sheriff’s “Medal of Heroism” Award to the boys. In a Facebook post of the event, the Sheriff’s Office said of the boys, “We can’t thank these fine young men enough. They are true heroes.”

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

Silent Majority Rising Up Holding ‘Back the Blue’ Rallies In Counties Across the Country – DJHJ Media

Here we go again.  Another story about the uncontrollable gun violence in the Democrat-run, gun-control-saturated city of Chicago.

Sixty-five people were shot throughout Chicago this weekend as Mayor Lori Lightfoot pushed for police reform and virtue signaled the city on virus pandemic safety measures.  The Democrats want to defund police who are the grunts in the battlefield who have to deal with never-ending rising homicide rates, stemmed in large part by ridiculous city policies.  It’s madness.

I think the good people of Chicago care more about not getting shot to death than wearing a mask and committing to social distancing guidelines, n’est-ce pas?

There were four kids who were among the 65 shot.  Folks, that’s just unacceptable.

A total of 18 people died, including 2 youngsters and a baby.  A BABY!  Folks, now a baby was killed.  How are those gun control laws working for ya?  Gun control laws only stop law-abiding citizens from being able to carry a gun for protection against the savage killers on the streets of Chicago who can carry as many guns as they want.  The policies of Democratic administrations are just plain crazy.

The weekend gun violence took Chicago over the 300 homicides to date this year, the benchmark that Superintendent David Brown challenged the police department to work to stay below back in April. Last year, the city didn’t break 300 homicides until early August, according to the Chicago Sun Times, but they’re getting a jump on it this year.  And it’s particularly outrageous since the city was under house arrest throughout the pandemic virus scare.  They ruthless animals had to violate social distancing guidelines – O NO! – in order to find people to shoot.  It’s unbelievable.

A 10-year-old girl was shot and killed Saturday night when a stray bullet hit her inside a Logan Square home on the Northwest Side.

She was inside the apartment about 9:40 pm in the 3500 block of West Dickens Avenue when suddenly a bullet came through a window and struck her in the head, police said. She was taken to Stroger Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.  10-YEARS-OLD!  WT*!

Neighbors said they heard gunshots, but they thought it was fireworks. Police said the shots may have come from a group of males who began firing at another group in the block.  It’s one thing for drug dealing animals to shoot each other, but to just recklessly shoot without a care in the world about hitting a civilian who isn’t wrapped up in the drug world is unforgivable.  Even the Capone gang didn’t operate this way.

And that wasn’t the end of it.

Earlier that afternoon, a 1-year-old boy was killed and his mom was wounded in Englewood on the South Side.

Earlier that morning, a teenage boy was shot to dying in Humboldt Park on the West Facet.

We reported that on June 19, a 13-year-old girl was dancing with her mom when a stray bullet entered their house and took her life.

The newest fatal shooting happened early Monday in Brighton Park on the Southwest Side.

A 21-year-old man was walking about 2:22 a.m. in the 4400 block of South Whipple Street when a male suspect approached him and shot him in the face and leg, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Almost two hours before that, a man was discovered shot to death in Humboldt Park.

On Sunday evening, a man was shot and killed in Garfield Park on the West Side.

The 23-year-old was found in the 4500 block of West Maypole Avenue, unresponsive with gunshot wounds to the hip about 11:04 p.m. according to police said. He too was pronounced dead at the scene.

Earlier Sunday night, yet another man was killed in West Pullman on the Far South Side.

Three people were killed in three separate shootings in under 90 minutes on a Sunday morning.

Last weekend 104 people got shot in Chicago, 15 deaths, including five kids.

That’s a whole lot of black lives that don’t seem to matter to the people running Chicago.

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.

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.

Petition · Charlie Baker: Hold Massachusetts Judges Accountable · Change.org

Justice for Officer Gannon and Officer Nero
Lori Wagner started this petition to Governor of Massachusetts Charlie Baker and 26 others

The judicial system in this state needs an overhaul. Our police officers are out putting their lives on the line daily for the safety of the people of the Commonwealth and their hard work is for not when career criminals are allowed to walk free from a courthouse. How many known violent criminals are walking freely in public awaiting their next court date instead of sitting in a cell where they belong? 1 is too many. Officer Sean Gannon is the perfect example of why. On April 12,2018, while serving a warrant with his K9 partner Nero, he was shot and killed by Tom Latanowich, 29, of Somerville. A man with 111 prior convictions and current pending criminal charges and on probation.

He had a known violent history and yet he was allowed to freely walk the street. Had he been where he belonged, jail, Officer Gannon would be here today. Instead, a great, young police officer is gone needlessly and his young wife is a widow. His family has lost a key member, Nero has lost his best friend and his department has lost a brother.

The judges need to be held accountable for these decisions. We are prosecuting drug dealers in some cities and towns on manslaughter charges and sentencing them to jail, we send drunk drivers to jail after minimal numbers of offenses but we let a man with 111 convictions walk freely amongst us.

We the people of Massachusetts want our justice system fixed. it’s time we are allowed to feel safe and it is beyond the time for our police officers to have their hard work followed through on the final end—jail for offenders.

Hold judges accountable for the improper decisions they make when sentencing a career criminal. Save our police officers, DO YOUR JOBS!
