Massachusetts cop rings in the new year by helping woman in labor deliver a ‘healthy baby girl’

A Massachusetts police officer is winning praise for heroically helping a woman in labor bring a new life into the new year.

Agawam Police Officer Zack Hall was on duty on New Year’s Day when he responded to an emergency call around 2:45 a.m. A woman had contacted emergency authorities after going into labor without time to get to the hospital.

“Officer Hall quickly responded and helped mom deliver this healthy baby girl,” the Agawam Police Department said in a Facebook post. “Congratulations, Mom, Dad, and baby Sophia!”

Officer’s Hall’s wife Melissa, who is also a police officer, responded with a comment praising her husband: “My hubs!!! So proud of him!!! Congrats to the parents!!!”

“[H]e was literally beaming,” the department wrote back. “It was good to see! Its a nice change-a happy call instead of the usual stuff!! Happy New Years! Stay safe!”

“We’re all proud of him,” the department added.

In an interview with People magazine after the extraordinary birthday, Hall said the moment was surreal and was “unlike anything I’ve ever felt.”

“I was there to help bring a new life brought into this world, all while trying to remain calm for the nervous parents,” he said. “I feel proud and lucky that I had the opportunity to help this family and their beautiful new baby. It’s not something many police officers witness.”

Officer Hall described the encounter and explained at first he wasn’t nervous because he didn’t immediately understand how close the mother was to giving birth. But then things started to happen very quickly.

“It was when I saw the baby’s father running out of the house that I realized the mother was about to give birth at any moment. I just ran into the house ready to help,” he explained. “As a cop, you don’t really have the time to focus on nerves or emotions. We just do what we are trained to do.”

Melissa Hall told People that she wasn’t surprised that her husband acted quickly, noting that police officers receive training for these types of situations.

“We go through first responder training that helps us in such a situation, but we never really expect to be a part of such a special moment,” she said. “I am so proud of him and everything he does for the community every day. … I know he truly loves being able to help others.

“Anyone can clearly see how he’s beaming with pride in that photo, as he should be,” she added, referring to the photo posted by the APD. “He didn’t hesitate to help those parents or their newborn baby and helped bring a new life into this world. What a way to ring in the new year!”

Zack Hall hopes that this story will give people a more positive image of the police and remind them of the good work that they do.

“There are good and bad people in this society that we, as police, interact with every single day — just as there are good and bad police officers that the public interacts with every single day,” he said. “It’s so nice to get positive feedback from the community, especially during a time when most of what the world seems to focus on lately is only the negative.

“At the end of the day, all cops want to do is help make their communities a little bit better for future generations,” he continued. “As nice as it is for everyone to acknowledge my actions, it should also be acknowledged the bravery of the parents in such a crazy situation. We were all in it together, and I couldn’t be happier for them.”

Massachusetts cop buys Christmas dinner for family after? they get caught shoplifting

A kind-hearted Massachusetts police officer is earning recognition for his Christmas spirit after responding to a call about shoplifting at a Somerset supermarket.

It was five days before Christmas when Somerset Police Officer Matthew Lima responded to a call for his help.

A local Stop & Shop grocery store reached out to police after they claimed two women had been caught shoplifting.

Lima told WCVB-TV that shoplifting is one of the most common complaints police officers receive from retail stores.

“It can be people shoplifting any number of items, any value from $10 up to thousands of dollars,” Lima said. “You really don’t know what to expect until you get there.”

According to WCVB-TV, loss and prevention at the Stop & Shop accused two women who were shopping with two children of only scanning a few of their items at the self-checkout but bagging all of their groceries anyway.

Officer Lima was dispatched to the supermarket after police received a complaint.

“It was a little bit different from the get-go because not too many people engage in that type of behavior with their young children there,” Lima said.

He observed something else as well.

“I noticed it was all grocery items, so it was all consumable food items,” Lima said.

Suspecting that these women were stealing groceries out of necessity, he asked one of the women why they were shoplifting.

“She stated that, obviously it goes without saying, that times are tough for a lot of people, that she was working but not enough and didn’t make enough money and that there were some other family issues going on and that she just wanted to provide a Christmas dinner for the kids,” Lima recounted.

The two children with the women were the same age as Lima’s own children, and he felt compassion for them. He issued them a trespassing notice but decided against filing charges.

After escorting them from the store, he turned around and went back in.

“I just made the decision that I was going to purchase the gift cards and they could go to a different Stop & Shop and buy their Christmas dinner for their girls,” Lima said.

The coronavirus pandemic has been hard on every American. People all across the nation from every background have faced economic hardship or loss this year.

“We have the ability to adapt to many things,” Lima said. “But also, we just need to be there for each other and be there for our neighbors.”

Blue Lives Matter California wildlife cougar Intelwars Mountain Lion police officer US NEWS

Mountain lion resists arrest, leading police on chase through neighborhood backyards

“Anybody missing their cat?”

A mountain lion, also known as a cougar, led police on a merry foot chase through Southern California backyards Saturday morning, the Sacramento Bee reported.

After locals spotted the big cat in Santa Ana and Tustin and reported it to authorities, an Orange County sheriff’s helicopter tracked it down. The mountain lion resisted arrest and police began a “lengthy foot pursuit” through the neighborhood.

Sheriff’s deputies described the chase in an Instagram post.

“This morning Duke 1 responded to the unincorporated area of Santa Ana in response to reports of a mountain lion sighting,” the deputies wrote.

“The Duke crew quickly located the large cat in a backyard and directed @ocsdnorthpatrol Deputies, @tustinpolice officers and Fish and Game wardens to its location. A lengthy foot pursuit ensued through the neighborhood until the mountain lion was safely tranquilized and taken into custody to be relocated back into the wild.

“This definitely falls into the category of ‘we don’t see this everyday,” the deputies said.

Area residents reported seeing the mountain lion earlier that day.

“My neighbor texted me at eight o’clock this morning and said, watch your doggies because we just had a mountain lion in our backyard,” Jocelyn Kelly told KTLA-TV.

Police and animal control took care of the cat professionally and no one reported any injuries related to its capture.

“It wasn’t really all that scary,” Kelly said. “They handled it so beautifully, that they didn’t make you afraid, and I am an animal lover so all I wanted to make sure is that they didn’t kill it.”

Mountain lion sightings in the area are not uncommon as more than half of California serves as a habitat for the big cats.

“Mountain lions are quiet, solitary and elusive, and typically avoid people by nature,” the California Department of Fish and Wildlife says on its website. “However, as human population expands into mountain lion habitat, more frequent sightings may occur and human/mountain lion encounters may increase.”

Here are some tips to follow if you encounter a mountain lion, courtesy of KTLA:

  • Never approach a mountain lion. Give them an escape route.
  • Do not run. Running may trigger chase, catch and kill response.
  • Do not turn your back on a mountain lion. Face the animal, make noise and try to look bigger by waving your arms, or opening your jacket if wearing one; throw rocks or other objects.
  • Pick up small children.
  • Do not crouch down or bend over.
  • Speak calmly and don’t use high pitched tones or high pitch screams.
  • If a lion attacks, fight back.
In other words, don’t be like this guy:

Blue Lives Matter Christmas Christmas spirit Gofundme fundraiser Intelwars Operation santa's handlebars police officer

West Virginia police officer launches ‘Operation Santa’s Handlebars’ to give bikes to kids in need this Christmas

Sure, technically he’s not Santa Claus, but this year one West Virginia police officer is going beyond the call of duty to serve kids in his community by giving them Christmas gifts.

South Charleston police officer Tony Messer has rallied an online community of supporters to raise money for Christmas gifts for the children of his city. Thanks to many generous donations, Messer was able to purchase bicycles for kids who might otherwise have received little for Christmas, as too many Americans face economic hardship during the coronavirus pandemic.

“We raised almost $2,000 for bikes, and we just bought 25 bikes,” Messer told WCHS-TV. “And that’s something that this community, they’re all so proud of, so that’s amazing.”

The project, called “Operation Santa’s Handlebars,” began months ago when Messer created a Facebook page to reach out to his community and humanize police officers during the summer unrest as Black Lives Matter and anti-police rioters set U.S. cities on fire. He began by streaming video games and making posts about his efforts to engage with the community he protects.

“I wanted to build some kind of community, and I never thought it would be what it is now. We do a thing that we want to humanize the badge. So, I want to be a better person. I want to be a better police officer, and I want to set goals for kids who are growing up. I started the page, Officer Messer, and it just kind of took off,” he said.

His page now has more than 10,000 followers from all over the country. Many kind supporters donated to help Messer buy bikes for kids.

“We have so many people who have a goal on here to do stuff for these kids that are not going to have a good Christmas. It’s because of these people, all 51 people behind us, watching right now. It’s because of them, it really is,” he said.

Messer also wants to use his Facebook page to honor other police officers who tragically were killed in the line of duty, like officer Cassie Johnson of Charleston, who recently died two days after being shot while responding to a parking complaint.

“We want to start a scholarship for a criminal justice program for female officers, something like that, just to keep her name in memory because of everything she sacrificed for this community,” Messer said.

A post pinned to the top of Officer Messer’s Facebook page links to a GoFundMe account set up for Johnson’s family.

fatal shooting homeless man Intelwars New York City NYPD Off-duty cop police officer

Angry homeless man opens fire in New York City deli, kills customer. But off-duty cop is in store, too — and tackles, detains shooter.

An angry homeless man who had just been kicked out of a deli in Queens, New York, on Monday returned to the store and opened fire, fatally shooting a customer, police
told the New York Daily News.

What are the details?

Steven Cohen, 63, lives out of his blue Honda Odyssey, the paper said, and he was at the store in Ozone Park to buy lottery tickets but was acting disorderly.

Mohmediyan Tarwala, 26, helped a worker escort Cohen out of the Cross Bay Express Deli, the Daily News said.

But Cohen returned around 6:15 p.m., opened the door, and opened fire, the paper said, hitting Tarwala twice in the stomach. Cohen then turned the gun on the clerk but lowered it after seeing the plexiglass barrier at the counter, sources told the Daily News.

The accused shooter took off, but New York City Police Officer Jason Maharaj — who was off duty and in the store — followed the suspect outside, wrestled him to the ground, and grabbed the gun, police told the paper.

Police recovered a Colt .45 handgun at the scene, sources told the New York Post.

Medics rushed Tarwala to Jamaica Hospital, but he could not be saved, the Daily News said.

Anything else?

Just prior to the shooting, Cohen entered another store, Beer Town, across the street, and told the clerk to call 911, the Daily News said.

“He seemed like he was in the middle of a medical emergency,” Beer Town clerk Chris Hanlon told the paper. “He then just walked away.”

Cohen is charged with murder, attempted murder, and criminal use of a firearm, the Daily News said.

Officer Maharaj is from the 77th Precinct and has been with the NYPD for two years, the Post reported.

What did folks have to say about the off-duty officer?

Commenters on the NYPD News page on Twitter praised the off-duty officer for stepping up.

“Great job!! So you think a social worker would have had the balls to do that?” one commenter asked. “Still want to get rid of police? GOD BLESS THE MEN & WOMEN OF THE NYPD!!”

“God bless our police!!! Never listen to the idiots out there. Mature sensible people appreciate and support you,” another commenter said.

Although one quipped that “the officer will be suspended for assaulting the criminal because he tackled him!”

Alleged looter Grand jury indictment Hit by vehicle Intelwars police officer Portland riots retired watch

Portland cop charged for driving into alleged looter who ran from shop during riot — and alleged looter’s charges are dropped

A now-retired Portland police officer is accused of driving into an alleged looter who ran from a shop during a riot this summer — and while the former officer has been indicted, the alleged looter’s charges have been dropped, the Oregonian reported.

What are the details?

A Multnomah County grand jury charged Scott Groshong with official misconduct, third-degree assault, and failure to perform the duties of a driver, the paper said, citing a source familiar with the investigation who’s not authorized to speak about it.

Groshong — who retired in August after a 27-year career — was working undercover surveillance and driving an unmarked van during a mid-June protest, the Oregonian said.

Here’s video of incident:


Alleged Portland skate shop thief struck by police van

youtu.be

Daryl Turner, president of the Portland Police Association, condemned Groshong’s prosecution and suggested politics is playing a role in the case, the paper added.

The Oregonian noted that while the indictment hasn’t been filed in court, the police union and the manager of the Portland Skate and Snowboard shop said the incident occurred June 15 just before midnight.

More from the paper:

Groshong and Portland police Sgt. Chris Kenagy were doing surveillance in the area of Northwest Ninth Avenue and Davis Street and heard glass breaking, according to court records from arrests made that night. Groshong drove up to the skate shop and recorded one man reaching in and taking two skateboards and another snagging a third board before running off, the records indicate.

A short time later, another man walked up to the store, stole a helmet and darted across the street, said shop manager Kevin Nimick.

A video by an area resident caught an unmarked black van racing east on Davis Street up to the alleged helmet thief, who was running across the street near 9th Avenue, and shows the van strike him near the intersection, knocking him off his feet and onto the sidewalk. […]

The driver’s side door of the black van opened but no one appears to have stepped out of the vehicle, and the man who had been struck ran off, according to the video.

The alleged looter — who appears to drop the stolen helmet and leave it behind before running away — was arrested a few blocks away, the Oregonian said.

But his burglary and criminal mischief charges were later dismissed, the paper said, and he actually accused Groshong later on of driving into him and then driving away.

According to Turner, Groshong said that allegation is false, and the alleged looter ran in front of the vehicle of an independent witness near the scene and didn’t show any sign of injury, the Oregonian noted.

“Instead of the suspect facing consequences for looting, this veteran police officer finds himself the target of misplaced criminal charges,” Turner said in his statement, according to the paper. “Incredibly, this suspect now claims the police knowingly hit him with the undercover surveillance van when the officer drove towards him to document his criminal acts. That claim is false, self-serving, and runs completely counter to the independent eyewitness who observed the suspect running away from the scene of his crime.”

Also, Turner said the grand jury didn’t hear from the independent witness when the case was presented by an outside prosecutor, the Oregonian noted.

“There is no justice when politics are injected into the criminal justice system,” he noted in his statement, according to the paper, adding that “once the full picture is revealed, we are confident that justice will prevail and the officer will be exonerated of all charges. We stand by our officer, truth, and justice.”

Kenagy, who was riding with Groshong, has not been charged, the paper said, adding that Groshong’s lawyer did not return a call for comment Wednesday night.

Blocking street Intelwars Left-wing protesters police officer portland watch

VIDEO: Cop drives motorcycle into protester blocking his path, pushing her up road and knocking her down. And her comrades lose their minds.

In the Antifa Shangri-La of Portland, Oregon, a crowd of protesters tried having their way with a lone police officer Friday night — but he was having none of it.

What happened?

The officer had pulled over two vehicles — a white van and a blue sedan — blocking traffic near the intersection of Northeast 47th Avenue and Northeast Couch Street, police told the Oregonian.

Video shows protesters converging upon the scene and the white van escaping and speeding off, after which protesters cheered and applauded.


Image source: Twitter video screenshot via @baaascom

The lone, completely outnumbered officer then found himself facing down a crowd of protesters who inched their way toward him as he stood next to the blue sedan.

“Back up!” he hollered repeatedly to the group of about seven as they yelled back at him.


Image source: Twitter video screenshot via @baaascom

Presumably sensing the moment was right, the driver of the blue sedan took off as well — followed by more cheers and applause from the protesters.


Image source: Twitter video screenshot via @baaascom

But the cop wasn’t about to slink off in defeat. He got on his motorcycle and prepared to pursue the driver.

Oh, but the protesters didn’t like that very much — and a couple of them stood in his way.

The officer, however, wasn’t deterred. He easily moved past one protester armed with a shield who tried to prevent his passage.

But then another protester a few feet away positioned herself directly in front of his motorcycle — her legs literally straddling the path of his front wheel.


Image source: Twitter video screenshot via @baaascom

Think the cop froze in the face of this righteous indignation? Nah.

He kept right on going, pushing the protester with his motorcycle up the road until she tumbled to the street, after which he sped away.

But right on cue, the cop blocker’s comrades flipped out like the officer had invaded the protester’s personal space or something, and in another familiar sight they chased after the officer on foot while unleashing enraged howls.


Image source: Twitter video screenshot via @baaascom

The clip in question is the second video in the below tweet. Content warning: Language:

What happened afterward?

Portland police said in their early Saturday statement that the woman jumped on the officer’s motorcycle, the Oregonian reported. But the paper noted that independent photojournalist Sean Bascom — who posted the video of the incident — said “no one ‘jumped on the motorcycle.’ The protesters planted their feet in front of it and were driven into.”

Bascom added to the Oregonian that police were citing drivers who had been protecting demonstrators from “vehicular attacks” and believed that the officer could have avoided pushing the protester with the motorcycle by driving elsewhere “or simply not accelerat[ing] at all and call[ing] in other patrol vehicles like they did when the white van took off moments earlier.”

More from the paper:

Live videos from the scene showed officers approach the crowd to check if the person needed medical attention. An argument ensued, and at least one person was detained during the encounter.

Police said Saturday afternoon that the protester struck by the motorcycle was eventually taken to the hospital and later booked on charges of rioting, interfering with a peace officer and second-degree disorderly conduct. Police did not provide an update on the person’s medical status. Police said they were booked into jail later than initially planned because someone had slashed the police vehicles’ tires in the hospital parking lot.

Jim Middaugh, a spokesman for Mayor Ted Wheeler, told the Oregonian he didn’t know if any investigation had been launched into the incident and couldn’t comment about the police bureau’s account.

“It’s troubling whenever police officers and protesters end up in an interaction that results in conflict, and that clearly happened last night,” Middaugh told the paper. “It requires a thorough investigation of the police officer’s actions and tactics involved in the traffic stop. At the same time, I think it’s important for all protesters to remember that in any circumstance, it’s not a good idea to surround an officer who is alone or to try and impede an officer who is attempting to carry out his or her duties.”

California Heroism Intelwars police officer train watch Wheelchair-bound man

Abolish police, eh? Check out what one officer does after spotting elderly man in wheelchair stuck on tracks as train barrels toward him

Amid leftist cries to abolish and defund police departments in some areas of the country, we’ve seen numerous examples of cops just showing up for work each day and putting their lives on the line for the rest of us.

Count Officer Erika Urrea of the Lodi, California, police department among them.

What happened?

Urrea’s bodycam caught the heart-stopping scene as she saw a 66-year-old man in a wheelchair apparently stuck on the Union Pacific Railroad tracks near Lodi Avenue Wednesday morning — while a train was barreling toward him, the Lodi News reported.

Video shows Urrea exiting her patrol vehicle and running toward the wheelchair-bound man as the track’s bells sound, the arm guards are down, and the train’s horn is heard in the distance.


Image source: YouTube screenshot

“Can you get up?” she asks when she gets to the main as the train’s horn becomes louder.

“A northbound train was traveling pretty fast, and she rushed over to get him unstuck,” Sgt. Steve Maynard told the News. “She only had a few seconds, and for some reason, she couldn’t get the chair loose, so she grabbed hold of him and hauled him from the chair.”


Image source: YouTube screenshot

The urgency in Urrea’s voice is apparent as she repeatedly tells the man to “get up!” and pulls him out of his chair and drags him from the tracks.


Image source: YouTube screenshot


Image source: YouTube screenshot

Maynard said the man suffered severe injures to his legs because the train still struck him as Urrea pulled him away, the paper said.


Image source: YouTube screenshot

The police department posted footage of the incident from Urrea’s bodycam. The man’s face and the bottom of his legs were blurred out in the video:

What happened afterward?

Urrea and another officer who arrived on scene immediately tended to the man’s injured legs, the News said, after which he was taken to an area hospital, where he was listed in critical but stable condition.

Urrea, a 14-year veteran of the department, declined to comment about her actions Wednesday, the News said.

The department, however, was more than happy to do so, telling the paper that “Officer Urrea risked her own life to save another, and her actions prevented a tragedy today. We are extremely proud of Officer Urrea and her heroism.”

Others commenting on the video were equally effusive:

  • “Don’t believe the FakeNews, America loves our police,” one person wrote. “God bless this and all our law enforcement officers.”
  • “Outstanding job!!! This officer is a hero!” another commenter said.
  • “Wow! That was some superhero s**t right there!” another person noted.
  • “Gave me chills! Well done officer…you are a hero and a credit your department. THANK YOU for continuing to honor your duty despite the most challenging of social times,” another commenter said. “Absolutely so proud to watch this…”

Anything else?

What’s more, Wednesday’s incident wasn’t the first time that Urrea acted to save a Lodi resident’s life, the News reported.

Last Tuesday, Aug. 4, Urrea responded to a call about a 62-year-old man who collided with the rear of a bus while cycling, the paper said, adding that Urrea performed CPR on him as paramedics arrived on scene and took over. The man was taken to an area hospital for treatment, the News added.

Black lives matter protests Colorado Springs Facebook Intelwars Kill them all police officer suspended watch

Police sergeant posts ‘KILL THEM ALL’ comment amid Black Lives Matter protest while using Facebook fake name. He’s been suspended.

A sergeant with the Colorado Springs Police Department has been temporarily suspended and transferred after an internal affairs investigation confirmed he wrote “KILL THEM ALL” and “KILL EM ALL” amid a Black Lives Matter protest while using a Facebook fake name,
KCNC-TV reported.


Image source: KCNC-TV video screenshot

What are the details?

The department said Sgt. Keith Wrede used the pseudonym Steven Eric to comment on KRDO-TV’s June 30 Facebook livestream coverage of the protest during which participants blocked traffic on Interstate 25 with about a dozen cars then exited the vehicles with placards and signs in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, KCNC said, adding that the demonstration lasted about an hour and most protesters left before officers responded.


Image source: KCNC-TV video screenshot

KRDO approached police days later after receiving a tip that Wrede was the source of the comments, KCNC reported.


Image source: KCNC-TV video screenshot

Colorado Springs Police Chief Vince Niski on Monday called the comments “unprofessional, distasteful, and not reflective of our department,” KCNC said, adding that Wrede was penalized with a 40-hour suspension, loss of more than $2,000 in wages, removal from his specialized unit, and departmental reassignment.

But Niski asked the public not to judge the sergeant for this single act and to consider the positives stemming from his two decades of service, the station added.

“It was determined that the comments were made off-duty out of frustration, and there was no indication of any physical action or intent to cause harm,” the chief wrote in a letter to the public, KCNC said. “I am in no way minimizing Sergeant Wrede’s words. His comments were unacceptable, have damaged our relationship with members of our community, and fell short of our standards.”

Niski’s letter also answered demands to immediately fire Wrede, the station said:

“We have heard concerns from many community members and are also aware of misinformation or misconceptions regarding our role and response to this investigation. I would like to first start by addressing the demand for termination. These requests were for immediate termination before our investigation was even completed. While I understand frustrations, Sergeant Wrede, just like our community members, are afforded due process whenever any type of investigation takes place. I have also heard from many that I did not address these comments or refused to provide information during the internal investigation. From day one, I have taken the stance that the comments made on the live-stream were unprofessional, distasteful, and not reflective of our department. As mentioned earlier, public employees are entitled to due process under the law, and in any investigation, we do not release details as it is on-going. We owe it to our community and our employees to make sure a thorough and fair investigation is completed without any undue influence.”

‘”While his statements were harmful and reprehensible, I cannot deprive the community of a good police officer and his services because of an isolated incident of an error in judgment,” Niski also stated, according to KCNC. “We hope that you can accept our apology and be assured that the CSPD and Sgt. Wrede will continue to faithfully serve the public.”

City council member Intelwars police officer Race Racism accusation South Carolina watch White

‘Take your white self back to the white neighborhood’: City official accused of using racist language toward cop over $10 parking ticket

A city official in South Carolina is accused of using racist language toward a police officer over a $10 parking ticket.

What are the details?

According to a Darlington Police Department report obtained by WBTW-TV reported, an officer was enforcing parking laws last month when he reported a vehicle parked on the wrong side of the road. The officer then placed a parking ticket on the windshield of the vehicle, the station said.

The report indicates that Councilwoman Sheila Baccus moments later asked the officer what was going on, and the officer replied that he had just issued a ticket and that he’d previously given a verbal warning for the same violation, WBTW noted.

The report added that another woman emerged that the officer recognized as the individual previously warned about parking on the wrong side of the road, the station said.

‘Why are you harassing us?’

The report adds that Baccus then asked the officer, “Why are you harassing us? You don’t have anything better to do than write parking tickets?” WBTW reported.

The officer replied that it was his job and to contact Chief Kelvin Washington if she had a problem, the station said.

The report says Baccus then made a phone call and afterward said, “The chief said he will take care of this ticket,” WBTW noted.

The she offered her alleged coup de grace, according to the station, citing the report: “Take your white self back to the white neighborhood … you’re probably the kind that would shoot us in the back.”

The officer said he did not respond to Baccus’ comment and instead returned to his patrol car, WBTW said, according to the report.

What did the police chief have to say about the alleged incident?

Police Chief Kelvin Washington on Friday provided the following statement, according to the station:

“On June 17, 2020, an unattended white SUV was improperly parked on Oak Street. An officer approached the vehicle and placed a parking ticket on the vehicle for being improperly parked. It was later discovered that the vehicle was being operated by Councilwoman Sheila Baccus. The officer handled this interaction with Councilwoman Baccus with the highest level of professionalism, and he has my complete support. He did nothing wrong and said nothing wrong. He was simply just doing his job. Any questions about Councilwoman Baccus’ actions or comments that day would be best answered by her. The parking ticket was paid two days after the incident.”

Daylan mclee Intelwars police officer Rescue Uniontown pennsylvania crash

Black man with contentious cop history risks life to save officer from burning car: ‘This man is my brother through Christ’

A man with a history of negative run-ins with local and state police saved the life a police officer after a fiery crash that surely would have taken the officer’s life.

What are the details?

Daylan McLee, who is black, was sitting in his home Sunday evening when his house shook from a nearby impact.

He heard the boom just before his house rattled and believed that a small earthquake shook the city of Uniontown, Pennsylvania, — until a relative came into his house to tell him that there was a car crash outside his home.

McLee, 31, sprinted outside, only to discover Uniontown Police Officer Jay Hanley trapped in a burning police cruiser. The flames had just begun to spread into the passenger compartment when McLee intervened and dragged Hanley from the burning wreck.

“We felt it in the house and my sister came screaming that two cars hit each other and one was a cop,” he recalled.

McLee said that Hanley asked not to be moved because of an apparent leg injury. He clearly didn’t see or feel the flames from the wreck spreading up to the cruiser’s cabin.

“Then we started to see flames start to come inside of the car from the bottom, and I knew we had to get him out,” McLee explained. “Another officer tried to assist me, and I just ripped the door open and we started dragging him across the street before the car ignited or anything serious like that.”

McLee also said that there was no way he could stand by and watch the officer burn to death.

“I know this man is my brother through Christ, and I couldn’t leave him behind,” McLee said. “There were people outside screaming. We felt it in the house. It was like a jolt.”

State police are investigating the crash.

“The investigation is going to show whether the traffic signal was working properly, whether the lights and the sirens on the vehicle were working at the time of the crash,” Trooper Robert Broadwater explained. “It’s still undetermined.”

First responders flew Hanley to a nearby hospital for leg surgery. The driver of the other vehicle was able to walk away from the accident.

What else?

Uniontown Police Lieutenant Thomas Kolencik told WTAE-TV that there is no doubt in his mind that McLee saved Hanley’s life.

“Daylan actually said, ‘I’m not going to let him die.’ There’s just no words to describe, you know,” he recalled. “We are so thankful Daylan was in the area at the time. It could have been a lot worse.”

Uniontown Mayor Bill Gerke said that McLee truly cares about people and is easily the strongest man in the city.

“The day I met him is still the way he is today,” Gerke said. “He cares about people, he cares about Uniontown, and that’s what Uniontown is all about.”

He added, “He said he’s a God-fearing man, and he cares about all human beings, and no one was going to die on his watch. I’m sure he didn’t wake up yesterday morning and that was on his mind that he was going to pull someone out of a burning car in the middle of Fayette Street, but thank goodness Daylan was there.”

What is McLee saying now?

McLee — who has had run-ins with the police in the past — said that he didn’t think twice about saving the life of a police officer despite growing tensions in the U.S. between police officers and citizens.

“There is value in every human life,” he said. “We are all children of God, and I can’t imagine just watching anyone burn. No matter what other people have done to me, or other officers, I thought, ‘This guy deserves to make it home safely to his family.'”

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, McLee filed a lawsuit against four Pennsylvania State Troopers in 2018 for wrongful arrest after he spent a year in jail for an arrest stemming from a March 2016 fight outside an American Legion bar.

“McLee had rushed to the bar … after his sister called saying she needed a ride home because she had been drinking and a fight had broken out,” the outlet reported. “When McLee arrived, he disarmed a man who was standing in the parking lot with a gun and threw the weapon aside.”

An on-the-scene trooper reportedly fired shots at McLee as he fled from the scene, insisting that McLee pointed a weapon at him on two occasions. Surveillance footage of the incident, however, reportedly showed that McLee simply disarmed the man and discarded the gun almost immediately.

A jury acquitted McLee after reviewing the surveillance footage.

Earlier in 2020, McLee encountered police officers once again after plainclothes police reportedly showed up at a gathering with guns drawn. McLee insisted that the officers did not announce that they were law enforcement officials, and so he ran. When police reportedly identified themselves, McLee said he immediately stopped and placed his hands behind his head.

McLee said that authorities charged him with fleeing and resisting arrest and claimed that an officer kicked him in the face, splitting his lip. He has said that he plans to fight the charges.

Despite his interactions with police, McLee said forgiveness is paramount in his life.

“We need to work on our humanity … that’s the main problem of this world,” he said. “We’re stuck on how to get up or to get even, and that is not how I was raised to be. You learn, you live, you move on and I was always taught to forgive big. You can’t base every day of your life off of one interaction you have with one individual.”

McLee, who is raising a 13-year-old son, said that he tries to be an example.

“Some people may think I look intimidating,” he said, “and I can’t hate the trooper who shot at me for what he doesn’t know. I don’t want to be called a hero. I just want to be known as an individual who is an upstanding man.”

Anything else?

McLee’s attorney, Alec Wright, says that his client is the real deal.

“Over the course of his life, Daylan McLee has had multiple, unjustified encounters with police officers just because of the color of his skin,” Wright said. “Those encounters make him the perfect candidate to hate and resent the police. But, that is not Daylan … The answer is not to disregard human life; the answer is to accept it for all that it is. That is Daylan.”

Black Lives Matter Cracker barrel Intelwars nashville Note police officer

Two black women pay for white cop’s meal, leaving a note: ‘Black Lives Matter, but so does yours!’

Two African American women made a Tennessee police officer’s day this week, after they paid for his breakfast and left behind a note thanking him for his service and assuring him: “[Black Lives Matter], but so does yours!”

What are the details?

Sumner County Patrol Deputy Jody McDowell posted on his Facebook page Tuesday, “I want to thank the two sweet black ladies who paid for my breakfast this morning. While waiting for a transport to be completed, I decided to have breakfast at Cracker Barrel near the Nashville airport. I received this note from them.”

The note read: “BLM (Black Lives Matter) but so does yours! Thank you for your service. Breakfast paid.”

According to Fox News, McDowell said the two women stopped at his table to thank him for his service in person, before they left. After that, his waitress delivered him the note and explained that his bill had been taken care of.

McDowell told WKRN-TV that the kind ladies were headed out to catch their flight back to Baltimore, Maryland, but he does not know their names. He hopes they see his message of gratitude.

Autopsy battle for your mind Ben Crump Coroner COVID-19 crafting the narrative Derek chauvin Dr. Michael Baden elitists Floyd the landlord George floyd get off your knees Headline News hung himself Intelwars jail cell Jeffrey Epstein left-right paradigm LIES Mainstream media Martial Law masonic symbolism Military Minneapolis Murder official narrative plandemic faliled Police police officer pornstar power propaganda Psychological Operation race baiting ruling class Scam scamdemic SLAVERY staged event Suicide tyranny Violence war for our minds

Is It One Gigantic Psy-Op? George Floyd’s Coroner Was Also Jeffrey Epstein’s

There is a lot of information about the murder of George Floyd, the man who was killed by a police officer in broad daylight, that the mainstream media is intentionally hiding from the public while they ask you to look only at the color of the skin of those involved.  A piece of relevant information they just so casually left out of their race-baiting broadcasts was that Floyd’s family conveniently hired the same coroner as Jeffrey Epstein.

Mainstream reported that Michael Baden was, indeed, the coroner, but unless you dig further than the simple title, you wouldn’t know that that was the same guy who said Epstein hung himself in a jail cell. we all know the entire Epstein situation is a lie and the official narrative was crafted to cover for the elites and the ruling class. So why did Floyd’s family choose Baden to perform his autopsy? Because this is likey a psychological operation designed to bring in totalitarianism and martial law for the permanent enslavement of mankind. Tyranny has no race. We will all be slaves soon if we don’t unite regardless of our skin color.

Dr. Michael Baden, who previously conducted an independent autopsy of Jeffrey Epstein, will do the examination after the family takes Floyd’s body back from the state, their lawyer said Friday.

“We’re going to take custody back of his body, and we’re bringing in Dr. Michael Baden to perform an independent autopsy,” the attorney, Ben Crump, said at a news conference, 1010 WINS reported.

“The family does not trust anything coming from the Minneapolis Police Department. How can they?” Crump added. –The New York Post

And yet, they trust the guy who said Epstein managed to than himself in his own jail cell?

American Gulag Death Of Jeffrey Epstein: Will Julian Assange Be Next?

If you’re still stuck in the left/right paradigm, you’d better wake up and you’d better do it quick. This is now a race to see who owns your mind; you, or the government? If you don’t start thinking for yourself, and very soon, someone (the police, the military, at the demands of government) will be using force and violence to do the thinking for you by way of mainstream media propaganda. It’s a battle for your mind.

Not only have the police and mainstream media now “admitted” that at least Floyd’s death was due to “underlying medical conditions” and not COVID-19 as we’d expect, but Masonic symbolism was found all over the murder scene such as a 666 painted on the garbage can nearby. That isn’t the only thing strange either. George Floyd was an actor and not just any kind of actor. Floyd was a porn star. The elitists have used actors and provocateurs in the past to agitate the public to the point of violence, so they can swoop in and kill with impunity.

Floyd and the killer cop, Derick Chauvin both worked together before too.

Was the whole thing staged? It looks like it, but use your own judgment to decide.

What we do know, is that people tired of the COVID-19 bullshit too quickly.  We know they wanted the public locked down a docile for as long as possible. But the plandemic lie didn’t last. People figured out the scam that it was. Now, the elitists that want your eternal subjugation to them and the ruling class have crafted another narrative to make sure they can use military force to expand their power and keep us divided.

People constantly ask what they can do about it. Here’s a thought…stop kneeling. Get off your knees, and never give another human being power over you, no matter what letter they have behind their name at election time.  Remove their funding source by refusing to be stolen from (taxed).  Stop acquiescing to power.  United, we stand, divided we fall. The ruling class knows this.

The good news is that they are pulling out all the stops. that means enough people have figured out that the problem is any and all power structures.  Once a human thinks they can control another human, things get July. Sometimes it takes centuries, but we need to face the truth that the belief in authority is driving this destructive system.

Do yourself a favor and read Larken Rose’s The Most Dangerous Superstition. The primary threat to freedom and justice is not greed, or hatred, or any of the other emotions or human flaws usually blamed for such things. Instead, it is one ubiquitous superstition that infects the minds of people of all races, religions, and nationalities, which deceives decent, well-intentioned people into supporting and advocating violence and oppression. Even without making human beings one bit more wise or virtuous, removing that one superstition would remove the vast majority of injustice and suffering from the world.

After Brainwashing People For Decades, MSM and Governments Are Losing Control of People

MSM Is Losing Control of The Official Narrative: “I’m Looking For The Truth!”

Wake up and think for yourself.  The apocalypse (Greek for “lifting of the veil”) has arrived.

Coronavirus Intelwars lockdown police officer Port of seattle Video

Port of Seattle police officer suspended after speaking out against ‘tyrannical’ lockdown enforcement

A Port of Seattle police officer has been suspended by his department, after he posted a video message on social media speaking out against law enforcement officers in the U.S. who are enforcing what he called “tyrannical orders” imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

What are the details?

Officer Greg Anderson, a Special Forces veteran, posted a video on Instagram last week directed at his fellow officers across the nation, expressing his concerns.

“I’ve seen officers nationwide enforcing tyrannical orders against the people and I’m hoping it’s the minority of officers, but I’m not sure anymore,” Anderson said. “Because every time I turn on the television, every time I look to the internet, I’m seeing people arrested or cited for going to church, for traveling on the roadways, for going surfing, opening their businesses, going to park with their families, or doing nails out of their own house—using their own house as a business and having special agents go there and arrest them.”

Anderson told his peers, “We need to start looking at ourselves as officers and thinking, ‘Is what I’m doing right?'” He continued, “I want to remind you that regardless of where you stand on the coronavirus, we don’t have the authority to do those things to people just because a mayor or a governor tells you otherwise.”

Anderson’s message went viral, and in an update to his Instagram account on Monday, he reported that he has been placed on administrative leave by the Port of Seattle Police Department pending an investigation.

Port of Seattle Police Chief Rod Covey confirmed Anderson’s paid suspension in a statement on the department’s website, writing, “Greg has always had the ability to express his opinions on what is going on in the country like all other Americans. However, he is not allowed to do so while on duty, wearing our uniform, wearing our badge and while driving our patrol car.”

Covey continued, “Every police officer in the country understands that. I personally told this to Greg and told him that I would support his right to talk about these issues as long as he did so while not claiming any affiliation to our police department. Greg has chosen this course of action ever after he and I spoke and while also knowing that his actions were outside of well-established policy.”

The Daily Caller reported that “Anderson says he was informed by the department and his union that the reason for termination was due to insubordination for refusing to take down his Instagram video.”

The officer said that after posting his original video, “I had received a message from command saying, ‘Wow Greg, what a powerful message. We agree with that 100 percent, well done,’ and that was a relief for me. Fast forward three hours later I get another phone call from my command, ‘Hey Greg, the video is up to 400,000 views, it’s time to pull the plug on this thing.'”

Anderson added, “I have three little kids, I have this house, I have another house. I cannot afford to lose my job.”

A GundFundMe page has been launched for Anderson and his family, and its message states that the funds will go toward “legal representation and to help cover any costs that the unforeseen future brings during this drastic change to their lives.” As of this writing, it has raised more than $278,000 with a goal of raising $50,000.

Bakersfield Black Lives Matter California felony Hamburger Intelwars McDonalds Officer Poison Police police officer Rubbed bun on floor Rubbed on ground Spit Spit on bun Spit on burger

McDonald’s worker allegedly rubbed a bun on the floor, spat on it, then served it to a police officer. Now she is facing a felony charge.

A former McDonald’s worker has been ordered to stand trial on a felony charge of willfully poisoning food after she allegedly spit on a hamburger before serving it to a police officer.

The worker, Tatyana Hargrove, 22, was arrested last November in Bakersfield, California, and is due in court March 23.

She is accused of rubbing a hamburger bun on the floor of the restaurant and then spitting in it while preparing an order for a uniformed police officer using the drive-thru, KGET-TV reported.

Hargrove also allegedly shouted, “Black lives matter” and “f*** the pigs!” during the incident.

The investigating officer, Deputy Carly Snow, testified that Hargrove admitted to yelling the insults because she knew the burger was going to be served to a police officer, according to testimony from a preliminary hearing.

The officer who was served and shouted at reportedly did not become ill from eating the burger.

During the preliminary hearing, Hargrove’s attorney, Lexi Blythe argued that there is insufficient evidence to prove her client willfully mingled poison or harmful substances with food, as the felony charge requires.

Blythe said that it’s unknown when the last time chemical cleaning products were used on the floor and that Hargrove’s back was turned away from the surveillance camera when the alleged crime was committed.

The prosecutor in the case, Gina Pearl, argued that another McDonald’s employee heard Hargrove drawing saliva into her mouth while she prepared the order, and that Hargrove can be seen wiping her mouth afterward, according to surveillance video.

When asked if saliva can be considered a harmful substance, Pearl said, “My position is saliva is absolutely a harmful substance. Look [at] what’s going on in the world right now with coronavirus,” according to Bakersfield.com.

Prior to the November 2019 incident, Hargrove claimed to be the victim of police brutality in a lawsuit filed against the Bakersfield Police Department in 2017. The suit went to a trial but the jury ultimately sided with the police department.
