Why am I not surprised? Via Daily Mail. Colin Kaepernick’s $25,000 donation to a charitable group honoring a convicted cop killer has been revealed. Kaepernick’s foundation made the donation to Chicago-based Assata’s Daughter’s, named after former Black Liberation Army member Assata Shakur, in April as part of a $1million charitable pledge. Shakur was convicted of first-degree murder in the 1973 shooting death of New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster and sentenced to life in prison, but staged a daring jailbreak and now lives as a fugitive in Cuba. Kaepernick, who is well known for his protests against police during the national anthem as a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, made the donation as part of his pledge to donate $100,000...

I bet. If she wants an apology, then fine, but this certainly shouldn’t mitigate any legal responsibility on his part. Handling anyone in that fashion, let alone a nurse doing her job in an ER, is obscene. It also doesn’t happen because someone had a bad day. A physical assault of that sort, under the color of law, is a reflection of the nature of that person. Via NY Post. The Salt Lake City cop who was caught on video dragging a nurse from a hospital and cuffing her now wants to apologize for his actions, according to a report. “Jeff would love the chance to sit down and apologize for what happened here,” attorney Greg Skordas said about his...

Here’s the latest on this outrageous story. The nurse is, rightly, being praised as a hero protecting her patient from an illegal order. Via WKRN. A Utah nurse said she was scared to death when a police officer handcuffed and dragged her screaming from a hospital after she refused to allow blood to be drawn from an unconscious patient. After Alex Wubbels and her attorneys released dramatic video of the arrest, prosecutors called for a criminal investigation and Salt Lake City police put Detective Jeff Payne on paid leave Friday. A second police officer was put on paid leave Saturday as authorities investigated the use of force in the nurse’s arrest. “This cop bullied me. He bullied me to the...

Part of the Obama legacy– a hostility toward law enforcement that condemns all of us. AG Sessions is taking action to reverse this trend and President Trump regularly expresses his support for the police as he is today. This trend must be stopped. It’s artificial and can be reversed. Via Washington Examiner. The killings of police have surged 39 percent this year, a tragedy that President Trump is expected to address Monday when he draws attention to National Police Week. The National law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund said Monday that 50 police have been killed this year. In 2016 at this time, the number was 36. The most, 22, were traffic related. The second highest reason was gun shootings, at...

Good news for one of our furry heroes and all of his humans. Prayers up for all! Via CBS News.

O’Shea had an extensive criminal history and tried to flee from the officers, CBS affiliate WPEC-TV reported....

It’s “unconstitutional” to object to a painting that demeans police officers, but it’s perfectly okay to disobey Federal law with regard to illegals? Got it. Via Grabien. Rep. Clay: “For those of you who may not know, many other members of Congress conduct this Congress in their district as well. In fact, this painting was one of more than 400 student entries from across the nation that were reviewed, accepted and approved last June for public display in the cannon tunnel by the architect of the Capitol. Members of Congress do not select the artists. We do not approve or disapprove of any of the artistic concepts, and we have no role in judging the competition. We simply provide a...

The Obama legacy continues. Via Daily Caller. A 17-year-old Alabama high school student is in critical condition after being assaulted this weekend.

When authorities arrived on the scene, they discovered Ogle beaten and bleeding from the head… Ogle’s mother, Brandi Allen, told police she believes the assault occurred after he posted a pro-police message to Facebook. “Instead of us planning for his 18th birthday, we’re here,” Allen told WBRC from the UAB Hospital on Sunday. “Why? Because he made a statement that he backs the blue? I’m still trying to understand how someone, no matter...

Is anyone surprised? The DNC trotted out, like props, the mothers of “innocent young men” killed by police. But no mention of the families of innocent cops gunned down in cold blood. Via Breitbart. ….“This is the most anti-police, anti-law enforcement convention I’ve ever seen in my whole life. There was not a uniformed police officer allowed on the convention floor. I was told that by four high-ranking police officers, two of whom I’ve known for a very long time. And then I walked the floor for very long time and I couldn’t find a single officer. Go look at your footage. You find me a uniform. Hillary Clinton didn’t want uniformed police officers on the convention floor.” ****************************************************

Officer Edward Nero The first officer, the driver of the van. had a mistrial. This officer did the arrest. Both cases clearly were a mess, and arguments have been that all the officers have been overcharged in a heated political atmosphere. Remember when the announcement first happened? Well, it seems are concerns are coming true. An overzealous, political DA overreaching because… politics. Officer Nero had waived his right to a jury trial, his was a handled by the judge. If there was wrong doing, I want those responsible to be dealt with, but from the start this whole process has been tainted, with these officers seemingly being used as pawns to push a liberal narrative. Horrible for all involved. Via...

Officer saves elderly woman moments before car sinks Jenkins jumped into the chest-high water of the Thames River, battling 3-foot waves and winds gusting 40 mph to rescue 85-year-old Marie Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald pulled into the parking lot of Eastern Point Beach, a picturesque spot overlooking the Long Island Sound, but lost control of her Honda Civic. Her car burst through the concrete barrier, barreled over the boulders acting as a buffer and plunged into the water. A true hero. ****************************************************

This would make targeting police officers a hate crime. Which it is. The usual liberal idiots are whining that hate crimes legislation is only for their protected groups. Well, it’s time we make it for other groups as well. After all, why should we deem some hate more hateful than other hate? Via KLFY News, HT Weasel Zippers. “Blue Lives Matter” it’s a saying we’ve all heard before, and if House Bill 953 passes the saying could become a law. Louisiana is one of the first states pushing to make it a hate crime to target police officers and first responders. If passed, House Bill 953 will increase penalties for crimes directed at law enforcement and firefighters. Many residents in...
