Arrests Buffalo police Intelwars Justice mark grisanti Maria grisanti Mark gristanti arrested supreme court justice viral videos

Shirtless, reportedly intoxicated New York state Supreme Court justice shoves cop while name-dropping mayor. He faces no charges.

New York state Supreme Court Justice Mark Grisanti was seen shoving at least one Buffalo, New York, police officer during an incident that took place outside his home in June.

What are the details?

According to the New York Post, officers responded to a call that ended up at the Grisanti home after the judge and his wife reportedly engaged in an altercation with neighbors.

On Thursday, the Daily Beast reported that the incident took place following a fight with a neighbor over a parking spot.

Bodycam footage obtained by WKBW-TV shows the judge’s wife, Maria Grisanti, shouting across the street at neighbors as they speak with the responding officers.

One officer tells Maria, “Ma’am, if you don’t stop yelling, this is gonna be a problem for you.”

The woman continues to shout across the street, responding, “I don’t care!”

Her remarks prompt the officer to cross into the Grisantis’ yard and move as if he is planning to arrest Maria. The unnamed officer attempts to handcuff Maria, but Mark — who is shirtless and later described by an officer on the scene as “intoxicated” — can be seen entering the scene and begins shouting at the officer, shoving him in the process.

The footage later shows Mark pushing an unnamed police officer and mentioning that he is friends with Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown (D). Mark also name drops his son-in-law and daughter, who are both on the police force.

Mark shouts, “You better get off my f***ing wife! My daughter and my son are both Buffalo police officers. … I’ll call them right now!”

What did the officer say?

Another officer at the scene grabs Mark’s arm, and says, “Keep your hands off of a cop.”

A clearly angry Mark continues raging, and another officer begins telling the judge and former state senator off.

“Let me give you some constructive criticism,” the officer says. “You want to drop another copper’s name? You scream about how you … know the mayor? Why don’t you shut the f*** up?”

The officer then moves in to cuff Mark as well.

The officer continues, “You want to say, ‘I know all these coppers, I know all these things.’ You want to make us look dirty? Is that what you want to do? So how am I helping you now? … Tell me how can I help you!”

Authorities handcuffed Mark and Maria, and placed them in the back of two separate police cruisers.

One officer can be heard telling Mark, “You’re dropping everybody’s name with a badge and you’re expecting special treatment. How does that look like to everybody in this environment right now? You smell like cheap beer. It doesn’t look good.”

No charges were filed against either Grisanti in connection with the June incident.

The outlet reported that Erie County District Attorney John Flynn’s office announced several weeks after the incident that it would not charge anyone involved in the altercation.

What else is there to know?

A spokesperson for the mayor’s office told the Post that he refuses to get involved.

“It has been, and remains, my policy as mayor not to interfere in any police investigation,” the spokesperson said on Brown’s behalf. “I have not spoken to the Buffalo Police Department, District Attorney Flynn, or Judge Grisanti regarding this matter. I believe that the District Attorney’s office is in the best position to determine the appropriate course of action.”

Buffalo Police Captain Jeff Rinaldo told WKBW that the officers involved decided not to charge the judge because he “didn’t tackle anyone, he didn’t punch him — he gave him, like, a shoulder shove.”

Following the incident, the judge’s neighbors spoke with the State Commission on Judicial Conduct to report Mark’s actions, according to WKBW.

The unnamed neighbors told the station that the commission reached out to them.

The Grisantis’ attorney, Leonard Zaccagnino, told the Washington Post that he did not receive a request for comment from the commission and said his clients are “embarrassed” and “very unhappy” about the June incident.

“The officer was grabbing her and putting her on the ground. He reacted to that, as I believe any husband would react if anybody saw their loved one being handled that way,” Zaccagnino said. “They obviously didn’t want this to happen.”

Black Lives Matter Black lives matter protests Blexit Candace owens Intelwars star spangled banner viral videos

‘This is a beautiful moment that the mainstream media won’t report on’: Blexit demonstration concludes with 2,000+ minority people singing ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’

Conservative firebrand Candace Owens shared a moving video on her Twitter page Monday featuring more than 2,000 black and Hispanic demonstrators singing the national anthem during a Saturday Blexit demonstration in Washington, D.C. At the time of this reporting, Owens’ video has been viewed more than 447,000 times.

What are the details?

As highlighted by the Daily Wire, an estimated 2,000-plus Blexit — “black exit,” a movement Owens created in 2018 to encourage black Americans to leave the Democratic Party — demonstrators marched over the weekend.

Owens’ video captures the moment that the demonstration concludes with a singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Owens shared the video on Twitter with a stark comparison between Black Lives Matter protests and the Blexit demonstration.

She captioned the video, “Black Lives Matter protests end with rioting, looting, and the destruction of minority communities. BLEXIT protests end with 2,000+ black and Latino Americans singing the national anthem.”

“This is a beautiful moment that the mainstream media won’t report on,” she concluded. “I’m so proud.”

As seen in the video, following the singing of the national anthem, demonstrators break into chants of “USA! USA!”

Saturday’s demonstration saw the thousands march in support of back police officers and law enforcement officials.

On Saturday, Owens tweeted, “Black and Latino Americans do not support the Marxist, anti-police rhetoric that has become fashionable in the media. Today, thousands of us have descended upon Washington D.C. to #BackTheBlue. Minorities do not belong to the Left.”

That same day, she tweeted, “This is what an *actual* peaceful protest staged by thousands of minorities looks like. Today was incredible.”

Fox News on Sunday reported that Owens told demonstrators that President Donald Trump has supporters all around the country because he clearly supports law and order.

“There are people all around the country that support this president because he supports law and order. It’s that simple,” Owens said during the Saturday march. “Law and order should be what you want no matter what color you are. If you are an American, you should want law and you should want order. That is the way forward.”

Bill burr Cancel culture Gay community Intelwars John Wayne Saturday Night Live Videos viral videos

Comedian Bill Burr lights up cancel culture, gay pride in blistering ‘SNL’ monologue — and ignites a Twitter firestorm

Comedian Bill Burr shredded cancel culture during his monologue on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, joking that the movement had gotten out of control.

What are the details?

During his monologue — which received mixed reviews on social media — Burr joked that the cancel culture mob would be coming for him following the Saturday night appearance.

“They’re literally running out of people to cancel,” Burr said. “They’re going after dead people now.”

“They’re trying to cancel John Wayne,” he continued. “They’re all up in arms. They’re like, ‘Did you hear what he said in that interview in Playboy in 1970? He was born in 1907. That’s what these people sounded like. You never talked to your grandparents and brought up the wrong subject? All of a sudden, they went off the rails? Like, ‘Oh, God, keep making the cookies.'”

Burr also said that he’s unclear on why gay pride receives an entire month.

“The month of June is gay pride month,” he said. “That’s a little long, don’t you think? For a group of people that were never enslaved.”

The remark came with the implication that black people should get more than just 28 days of recognition for February’s Black History Month.

“These are equator people,” he joked. “Give them the sun for 31 days. There’s gay black people, they could celebrate from June 1, June 31, give them 61 days to celebrate.”

Elsewhere during the interview, Burr joked that white women — which he referred to as “b***hes” at one point — co-opted the “woke movement.”

“The woke movement was supposed to be about people of color not getting opportunities,” he explained. “Somehow, white women swung their Gucci-footed feet over the fence of oppression and stuck themselves at the front of the line.”

What are angry people saying about this?

One user wrote, “Bill Burr’s monologue segment re: WW wasn’t anything to be celebrated and I’m again disappointed at Black folks aligning with gendered insults just to take digs at white women. That whole segment was misogynistic trash just like the ‘Karen’ nonsense.”

Another added, “Bill Burr is trash and has always been trash. Not because he doesn’t raise valid criticisms in some of his comedy, but because he has always leveraged his ability to point them out to the detriment of change and the benefit of himself, and he can f*** off into the sun for it.”

“Honestly, I didn’t even know who Bill Burr was, and after that opening monologue I can honestly say I’m glad I didn’t,” another user said. “Jokes were in poor taste, not funny. As a gay man in an interracial relationship we were both offended and turned the channel. Who approved that monologue?”

Another user wrote, “The fact some of you can’t even admit Bill Burr was wrong for calling women b***hes is problematic as f*** because I be damn if my dead grandmother is a b***h when she voted for Hillary Clinton and worked her damn hardest to protect her black grandkids!!!”

Yet another added, “Before yesterday I had no clue who Bill Burr was & I wish I didn’t know now. But the truth is Hillary was f***ed over by WW & WM. The numbers don’t lie. Be offended, check your privilege, and move on. If you voted for Hillary cool. It is what it is.”

What are entertained people saying about this?

One user wrote, “FYI If you’re a white woman mad at Bill Burr’s monologue, you’re openly identifying as one of his b***hes.”

Another added, “Bill Burr is a great comic with incredible, well crafted jokes and my personal view is that the people most served by pearl clutching about jokes are the people who want to launder real right wing extremism through the idea of “jokes” that are actually not jokes at all.”

“Did @billburr make SNL Great Again?” another user simply asked.

Another user wrote, “Bill Burr has both railed against cancel culture and against idiots like Bill Maher who self victimize over it. He’s constantly evolving in the service of comedy and he also calls himself an idiot a lot.”

Yet another added, “[Y]ou know whats even better than bill burr p***ing off wine mum twitter bill burr p***ing off racists with the exact same set.”

California mandates Coronavirus restrictions Intelwars los angeles lakers Los angeles mayor eric garcetti Nba finals Unlawful assembly viral videos

Thousands of fans ignore COVID rules to converge at LA Staples Center following Lakers’ championship win; many target cops during chaos

A massive horde of NBA fans took to the streets of Los Angeles after the Los Angeles Lakers won the NBA title. The Lakers won 106-93 over the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the finals on Sunday night.

What are the details?

KABC-TV reported that thousands of people showed up on Figueroa Street outside Los Angeles’ Staples Center, and some of them targeted police officers and their cruisers as officers were forced to declare the scene an unlawful assembly.

Days ahead of the Lakers’ win, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti directed citizens to stay off of the streets due to COVID-19 restrictions.

On Friday, Garcetti
said that NBA fans should not congregate on the streets during or after the game — which took place at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando, Florida — either to celebrate a win or lament a loss.

“I encourage you to yell at the top of your lungs inside your homes, maybe even open up the window or step outside your door as we’ve done for our first responders and essential medical workers to thank them,” Garcetti said. “Let’s thank the Lakers when they win, but let’s do it safe.”

Garcetti also warned that disregarding his advice could sabotage “all the progress we have made in our fight against COVID-19.”

“LAPD went into tactical alert and declared the gathering an unlawful assembly,” KABC reported. “Cars were seen performing ‘donuts’ and ‘burnouts,’ some cars were swarmed by fans in the streets.”

The report continued, “Multiple fireworks were set off and there were isolated reports of small groups throwing rocks and bottles at police.”

The station noted that local police and California Highway Patrol officers shut down ramps leading to the downtown area during the melee.

Bleacher Report on Monday
noted that many of the fans “began throwing beer bottles and other ‘projectiles’ at uniformed police officers that swarmed the area.”

“The few isolated incidents soon grew to a large mob of sports fans which soon made their way down the streets of Los Angeles turning over police cars and breaking into local businesses,” the outlet reported. “Some innocent bystanders became injured in the incident as the hoard [sic] came rushing down the streets.”

The outlet added that police arrived on the scene en masse “with riot gear and shots of tear gas which were thrown into the mass of hysterical fans.”

The Daily Mail also reported that “witnesses told the Los Angeles Times that officers also fired ‘beanbag rounds’ at one point, which sent some people running.”

Church is essential Grace community church los angeles Intelwars John macarthur Open your church Twitter viral videos

Grace Community Church Pastor John MacArthur issues blistering rebuke of ‘leftists and secular government,’ implores houses of worship: ‘OPEN YOUR CHURCH’

Los Angeles Pastor John MacArthur’s message in a new viral video is crystal clear: Open your churches.

What are the details?

MacArthur, pastor of Grace Community Church in Los Angeles, released a video Wednesday detailing why he believes church is essential and should be opened.

Grace Community Church reopened for in-person services in July, defying California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom’s COVID-19 restrictions. In response, Los Angeles County sought a court order to prohibit the church from meeting indoors. By August, however, a California Superior Court judge said the church could continue to hold indoor services as long as worshippers wear face coverings and practice social distancing.

In Wednesday’s widely viewed video, MacArthur argued that churches and parishioners across the country should band together in an effort to take back church amid the COVID-19 pandemic because it should be as God commanded.

In the video, MacArthur — who was recently in the news after local authorities threatened to jail him for holding in-person church services — said that the Bible calls Christians to gather.

“Today’s current crop of politicians are trampling on the Constitution and on the resolve of citizens to demand their rights under the pressure of a manufactured fear,” MacArthur said. “The reality is that the COVID data just doesn’t match the government’s COVID narrative.”

Without citing any specific research, MacArthur added, “You have a 99.99 percent chance to survive COVID. It’s just not what they’re saying it is.”

MacArthur insisted that what he chalks up to as hype and paranoia is keeping much of the country shut down.

“That absolutely does not warrant shutting down anything,” he continued. “But especially, absurdly, and arbitrarily, churches that have a special protection from the Constitution. Oh, and at the same time, leaving open abortion clinics, strip clubs, and marijuana dispensaries.”

MacArthur added that Black Lives Matter demonstrations and subsequent riots also don’t seem to be considered as “dangerous” as attending church services when it comes to the opinions of health officials.

“This is obviously targeted discrimination,” he added. “Leftists and secular government officials have no tolerance for biblical Christianity, so they’re using COVID as an excuse to shut us down.”

He impressed the importance of remaining united as Christians, reminding viewers that “the church is essential,” and pointed out that parishioners began showing up to his church in person, on their own accord, after a 20-week lockdown because “they didn’t believe the narrative the local government and media were giving them.”

In the video, MacArthur argued that the need to meet as a church is more important than ever.

“This is a watershed moment in America,” he concluded. “We have been granted by God the freedom to meet as a church, and that is protected by the Constitution. We need to be the church, not only because we’re free to be the church, but because we’re commanded to be the church by the Lord Jesus Christ, the head of the church. This is a time of all times to meet as the church. Open your church. The church is essential.”

At the time of this reporting, the video, which MacArthur shared on his Twitter page, has been viewed more than 475,000 times.

Daily caller arrests Daily caller reporters arrested Intelwars Richie mcginniss Shelby talcott Twitter viral videos

Daily Caller reporters say authorities forcibly detained, kicked, repeatedly hit them with clubs during Wisconsin riots

Two reporters for the Daily Caller say authorities detained them and hit them repeatedly as they covered demonstrations Thursday in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.

Demonstrations and riots erupted Thursday night in Wauwatosa after authorities announced that the police officer who fatally shot 17-year-old Alvin Cole would not face charges.

Investigators have said that Cole was running from police after reportedly firing a stolen handgun when police fired on the teen.

What are the details?

According to a Friday morning report from the outlet, reporters Shelby Talcott and Richie McGinniss said officers detained them even after they identified themselves as members of the press.

On Twitter, Talcott wrote, “@RichieMcGinniss and I just got detained/almost arrested. Officers kicked me and hit me with a billy club and repeatedly hit Richie with a club (we were not resisting). Luckily, an officer came while we were waiting in the police van and recognized that we were press.”

Following the alleged detainment, Talcott said that officers let her and McGinniss go.

“Richie had his press credentials visible before he was taken down,” Talcott said. “I was sitting in the car (outside of the area where protesters were being arrested) waiting for Richie (who was filming).”

The two were covering the demonstrations along with Campus Reform senior campus correspondent Blair Nelson and independent reporter Brendan Gutenschwager.

Talcott alleged that authorities demanded McGinniss and Nelson leave the area and said that the two reporters complied with the order.

“Several officers then chased the boys down right as they reached our car & forced the rest of us out of the vehicle before making arrests,” Talcott wrote in a now-viral Twitter thread. “Richie captured audio of the incident.”

Talcott also shared photos of herself and McGinniss with what she said were injuries sustained in the detainment.

She captioned the snap, “We’ll have some nice cuts and bruises in the coming days[.]”

McGinniss also shared video of the incident on Twitter, saying, “Video of @ShelbyTalcott and my detainment. As I was recording arrests, one officer told me to (quickly) clear the area. Upon arriving to the car, I was forcibly detained (with press cred in hand) and as you can hear in the video, I tried my best to comply with police orders.”

Late Thursday evening, Talcott concluded, “Last thing I’ll note for some comments I’ve seen from Louisville and this: freedom of the press is important and allows reporters to be out past curfew, etc to report the news and get the truth out there. It’s a dangerous thing if that right goes away.”

In the early hours of Friday morning, Talcott shared a video taken by Caroline Reinwald of WISN-TV.

Talcott captioned the video, “.@WISN_Caroline captured part of our detainment (picks up sort of after @RichieMcGinniss’s video, it seems). The person being tossed from the passenger side is [Brendan Gutenschwager], who is still — to my knowledge — in jail.”

Early Friday morning, McGinnis took to Twitter, writing, “@ShelbyTalcott called multiple times and I sent emails to any applicable PD’s [sic]. Still no status updates regrading [Brenden Gutenschwager] and [Blair Nelson].”

Talcott added that Gutenschwager and Nelson were reportedly jailed on “some sort of violating curfew charge” and were expected to “be released somewhat soon (1,2 hours) after being fingerprinted, etc.”

Gutenschwager on Friday morning tweeted, “Tonight I was brutalized by police in Wisconsin. This is me being dragged out of a vehicle and slammed to the pavement. Pleaded with officers that I am here as press, never even given a chance to cooperate before they escalated to this. I am in shock.”

Nelson also tweeted, “Hey everybody, I’m out of jail, only in there for three hours. I was arrested for filming with @BGOnTheScene @ShelbyTalcott @RichieMcGinniss. Still don’t have my phone, hopefully, will get it soon.”

The Blaze reached out to the Wauwautosa Police Department for comment on the story, but did not receive a response in time for publication.

Gov. andrew cuomo Intelwars Jewish holiday Mask burning new york fire department Orthodox Jews Videos viral videos

Police try to shut down celebration during Jewish holiday. Cuomo issues new ‘draconian’ measures, and community comes together to burn masks in the street.

A large group of Orthodox Jews
took to the streets in Brooklyn on Monday in celebration of Jewish holiday of Sukkot. Police attempted to intervene but were pushed out by revelers.

Following the event, New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced what he referred to as a “cluster action initiative” — an attempt to target red zone hot spot areas such as Brooklyn and Queens, as well as Broome, Orange, and Rockland counties across the state.

Cuomo’s announcement then prompted a second mass group to converge on the city’s streets on Tuesday, and its members burned their masks in response.

Police attempt to break up wild Monday dance party — and fail

On Monday, police attempted to
forcefully break up a large group of people celebrating the Jewish holiday of Sukkot — which began last Friday and will end this Friday — in the Crown Heights neighborhood.

According to a Tuesday
Newsweek report, members of the New York Police Department were ultimately unable to disperse the crowd. No arrests were made, and no citations were issued.

The Gothamist reported that the officers’ actions only prompted “indifference and hostility from Orthodox revelers who continued dancing even in the face of police orders.”

The outlet reported that “hundreds” of Jews gathered for the gathering.

“Video from the event shows police officers — including some from the NYPD’s Community Affairs Unit — imploring the densely packed crowd to follow state law’s intended to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” the outlet reported. “‘Please get onto the sidewalk,’ an officer pleads. ‘You will be allowed to dance on the sidewalk.'”

As seen in the video, the group apparently has no intention of following the officers’ orders, and instead, begins dancing more frenetically while pushing back at the police.

Shortly afterward, the officers ended up leaving the scene.

Gov. Cuomo’s initiative

On Tuesday, Gov. Cuomo addressed the issue of the large gatherings and announced his new initiative.

“I spoke to members of the Orthodox Jewish community today,” Cuomo said. “I spoke to the leaders myself this morning. We had a very good conversation. … I have been very close to the Orthodox community for many years. I understand the imposition this is going to place on them, and I said to them I need their cooperation. The Torah speaks about how certain religious obligations can be excused, if you are going to save a life. This is about saving a life.”

Cuomo added, “No large gatherings in synagogues to save a life. You look at where the infection rate is, you look at those clusters, people will die in those clusters and this is about protecting people and saving lives.”

In a statement in response to Cuomo’s mandate, state Sen. Simcha Felder, Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein, and Councilmen Kalman Yeger and Chaim Deutsch slammed Cuomo, and accused him of engaging in a “duplicitous bait-and-switch.”

“Outrageously, just hours later, Governor Cuomo announced a draconian return to restrictions that would shutter thousands of New York businesses and limit houses of worship to a maximum capacity of 10 (no matter the maximum capacity of the building),” the statement said.

“[Cuomo’s] rhetoric in recent days has been irresponsible and pejorative, particularly to a community of Holocaust survivors and their descendants, for whom his language was reminiscent of past verbal attacks on Jewish communities,” the statement added. “Governor Cuomo’s choice to single out a particular religious group, complete with a slideshow of photos to highlight this point, was outrageous.”

The initiative, effectively, would close schools, limit attendance at synagogues, and close nonessential businesses in “red zone” areas.

You can read more about the initiative here.

What happened on Tuesday night?

As seen in several videos circulating on social media, a massive group appeared on the streets of Brooklyn Tuesday night to protest against Cuomo’s new initiative.

Those members of the large group did not appear to be socially distanced, and many of them were not wearing any face coverings.

According to
Newsweek, the New York Fire Department showed up at the scene of at least one Tuesday night demonstration to extinguish a pile of burning masks.

The outlet notes that a “line of people [appeared] to briefly try and block the firefighters’ attempts to put out the blaze.”

Haaretz on Wednesday reported that protesters in Borough Park were joined by radio host Heshy Tischler and City Council Representative Kalman Yeger. Both, according to the outlet, “encouraged the crowd to stand up for religious freedom.”

“We are not going to be deprived of the right that we have in America, like everybody else in America, the right to observe our religion,” Yeger said. “I don’t care who in government thinks that they can stop us, they’re wrong. Let them try.”

Tischler later visited Crown Heights, where he told protesters, “We have a court order, we won, our schools and shuls are open, we will not close. … And here’s the deal, I’m filing a new court order, I’m holding Cuomo and the idiot de Blasio in contempt. We will civil disobedience … our amendments, our first amendments, our rights, we will not close our shuls Simchas Torah!”

Members of the crowd also chanted, “Jewish lives matter!” according to Haaretz.

Body cam footage Chicago stabbing Chicago Sun-Times Civilian office of police accountability Intelwars Reports Shaon jermy ochea warner viral videos

Graphic bodycam footage shows Chicago police fatally shooting knife-wielding stabbing suspect — who also stabbed a police officer

Chicago’s Civilian Office of Police Accountability on Thursday released bodycam footage of a police shooting involving a knife-wielding suspect.

The incident took place in September.

What are the details of the incident?

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, authorities responded to a call about a man armed with a large knife near Vittum Park.

When they arrived at the scene they discovered 34-year-old Shaon Jermy Ochea Warner armed with a large butcher’s knife.

On the video, an officer can be heard shouting, “Put your godd**n hands up. Don’t be reaching for nothing.”

Warner refuses and can be seen walking toward a female officer with the knife clutched in his hand. The female officer can be seen deploying her Taser at the suspect, which temporarily slows him down. It appears that Warner is able to rip out the Taser’s prongs, and once free, rushes the female officer and stabs her in the protective vest.

“Drop the godd**n knife!” an officer can be heard shouting on the tape.

Earlier in September, Chicago police spokesman Tom Ahern tweeted a photo of the suspect’s knife from the scene of the crime.

After Warner stabs the female officer, police unload on Warner, firing off about 15 shots, and the suspect falls to the ground.

The female officer can be heard telling her fellow officers that she is not injured.

First responders pronounced Warner dead at the scene.

In a statement, COPA said that its “investigation into the officer’s actions, including use of deadly force, is in its early stages and will determine if the actions of the officers are in accordance with the Department policy and training.”

CWBChicago shared the video on Twitter, captioning it, “Incredible video released by @ChicagoCOPA tonight. Police confront man wanted for stabbing a citizen nearby. Man clearly has large knife, overcomes effect of Tazer [sic] and charges sergeant with knife.”

You can watch the video here, but be warned, the content is graphic.

9mm beretta handgun Arrests Intelwars Jose cerpa guzman Los angeles times crime reports Pistol whipped police officer Police officer assaulted Videos viral videos

Highly disturbing video shows suspect repeatedly pistol-whipping police officer

Now-viral surveillance video captured the moment a suspect walked into a Los Angeles police station and repeatedly pistol-whipped an officer.

What are the details?

On Monday, the Los Angeles Times reported that the suspect — identified as 29-year-old Jose Cerpa Guzman — entered the Harbor Division station in San Pedro, California, on Saturday night. Guzman, who appears to be wearing a straw hat, can be seen entering the station and approaching a police officer inside.

The two can be seen engaging in what appears to be tense conversation as Guzman attempts to strike the officer with his hand. The suspect misses the first time, but connects a second time, driving the unnamed officer to the ground.

Guzman and the officer can be seen struggling on the floor of the station as the suspect is able to wrest away the officer’s weapon.

The outlet reported that Guzman was able to snatch away the officer’s 9mm Beretta handgun, and in the video, Guzman can be seen pointing the gun at the officer’s chest as the suspect gets to his feet and attempts to flee through the station’s front doors.

A second officer can be seen entering the scene at this point and sees the officer lying on the floor and the suspect attempting to flee.

The officer then runs after the suspect and draws her gun, but the suspect appears to attempt firing a shot from the first officer’s weapon. The officer takes cover, and a third officer enters the lobby with gun drawn.

Officer will recover

The Times reported that the suspect repeatedly pulled the trigger, but a “safety mechanism had prevented the gun from firing,” according to
Newsweek.

“The officer would have been dead if it had not,” an LAPD official told the Times.

In a Monday statement shared to
Twitter, LAPD Chief Michel Moore said that the first officer sustained “bumps and bruises” during the attack.

He wrote, “Spoke with officer at hospital. He is resting and will be ok. Bumps and bruises. He was not shot. Harbor unit responding pursued suspect and took him into custody.”

What else?

A Twitter statement from the LAPD
read, “The Watch Commander heard the commotion and responded to the lobby, at which time an officer involved shooting occurred. The suspect ran to a white pick-up truck and drove off. Responding officers observed the suspects [sic] vehicle and pursued the suspect to Pacific Avenue and 17th Street where he was taken into custody. The suspect sustained minor abrasions, was medically treated and was released for booking.”

Where is the suspect now?

Guzman remains jailed and is expected to be in court on Tuesday. His bail has been set at $2.23 million.

According to
KABC-TV, the LAPD will address the attack in a report to be released within 45 days.

Dallas gas station Delonte west Delonte west bipolar disorder Delonte west rehab Intelwars Mark Cuban Nba star goes to rehab rehab viral videos

Viral video shows Mark Cuban picking up Delonte West at a Dallas gas station as family hopes the NBA star will go to rehab

Billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was seen picking up former NBA star Delonte West at a Dallas, Texas, gas station on Monday, according to TMZ.

Cuban himself confirmed the authenticity of the video to ESPN.

What’s a brief background here?

Earlier this month, West — who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2008 and played for the Mavericks from 2011 to 2012 — was seen on the streets of Dallas begging for money.

West, according to Sports Illustrated, has reportedly been homeless off and on for the last several years and has also been seen behaving erratically in public on more than one occasion.

West’s family is reportedly holding out hope that West will go to rehab, and Cuban is reportedly willing to pay for the stay.

What are the details?

TMZ reported that Cuban had attempted to reach West in the days leading up to the Monday incident.

“Sources connected to the West’s [sic] family tell us that Cuban — who had been trying to reach DW on the phone for days — finally got in contact with Delonte … who agreed to meet the Mavs owner on Monday in Dallas,” the outlet reported, noting that sources told its reporters that Cuban transported West to a local hotel “while his family formulates a game plan.”

West, TMZ reported, now “seems open to the idea” of attending rehab.

Sports Illustrated on Tuesday reported that it confirmed Cuban was willing to foot the bill for West’s hospitalization.

Cuban isn’t the the first to reportedly attempt to help West — the outlet noted that the NBA, the NBA Players Association, the Boston Celtics’ Doc Rivers, and more attempted to get West help over the years.

West’s brother, Dmitri, has spoken out about the former NBA star’s struggles in the past.

“Delonte West is not crazy, he is not on drugs,” Dmitri said in 2016 after West was seen behaving erratically in public. “I don’t know what exactly is going on in his mind, but I can tell you that he is safe and he’s doing OK. My family are trying to get him the best professional help that’s out there, the best they can afford.”

West previously spent eight seasons as a player for the Seattle SuperSonics, Dallas Mavericks, Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Boston Celtics, averaging 9.7 points and 3.6 assists per game.

During his stint in the NBA, West also reportedly earned $16 million.

Anthony Jefferson was sitting on the sofa of a Bronx car dealership on Sept. 21 with his three children — ages six, five, and two — when three unnamed suspects opened fire outside the building.

As the suspects’ shots rang out and shattered one of the dealership’s windows — which was directly behind Jefferson and his three children — the brave dad shoved his kids off the sofa and onto the floor, as seen in now-viral surveillance video of the incident.

From the floor, Jefferson shielded the young trio with his own body and sustained a gunshot wound in the process.

TMZ reported that Jefferson was shot three times during the incident — once in his right thigh and twice in his boot.

The heroic father was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment following the shooting and was released. His family says he faces an additional surgery to remove the bullet, which is still reportedly lodged in his leg.

Last week, TMZ reported that three suspects were firing at a person inside the dealership, who returned fire. The outlet reported that the three suspects fled the scene on foot and that authorities are still looking for suspects in the shooting.

What about his employment?

Jefferson, who, according to his family, worked two jobs — one as a head painter and one as a construction worker — reportedly lost both jobs after the injuries he sustained in Monday’s shooting left him unable to walk.

His wife, Danica, told him that his two employers severed his employment because of his current inability to walk. Serena Wingate, a family friend, set up a GoFundMe page to benefit Johnson and his family during their time of crisis.

Wingate wrote, “On 9/21/20 at approx 7:20 PM, [Jefferson] was inside of 4077 Boston Rd in the Bronx with his three kids shopping for a vehicle to surprise his wife as her birthday gift, when 3 suspects fired multiple shots at a male who then returned fire, striking Anthony Jefferson 3 times, twice in his boot and once in his thigh as he was attempting to shield his 3 kids from the gunfire.”

“As he shielded his kids, the 3 suspect’s [sic] continued to shoot,” Wingate continued. “Due to his injury, Anthony lost his job and has to have surgery to remove the bullet. This Go Fund me is to help this heroic dad with his medical bills and his kids with therapy. They are beyond traumatized.”

At the time of this reporting, the GoFundMe page to benefit Jefferson and his family has received more than $281,000 in donations.

Anything else?

Jefferson told WNBC-TV that he was looking for a car for his wife’s birthday.

“I was trying to surprise my wife for her birthday,” Jefferson told the station.

He said that when he heard the shots, he had only one thing on his mind: “Get my kids and get low, to safety.”

“I was just being a father,” Jefferson added. “If my arms would have stretched to everyone, I would have made sure I would have gotten them to safety.”

Jefferson told the station that his young children are still suffering the devastating effects of the shooting.

“They’re traumatized,” he said. “My 2-year-old gets up in the middle of the night screaming. It’s heartbreaking.”

Black lives matter protests Black lives matter riots BLM Blm riots Intelwars Louisville Louisville protests Louisville riots viral videos

Black Lives Matter activists try to bully Louisville store owner, but he doesn’t back down: ‘Nobody can intimidate me’

Black Lives Matter activists attempted to pressure a store owner into supporting their causes, but the man wasn’t about to be bullied into blindly agreeing with them.

An armed man was guarding his store in Louisville on Friday night. He was protecting his business because it was firebombed the night before when riots erupted, which were sparked by the grand jury decision not to charge any of the police officers involved in the Breonna Taylor case with homicide.

Several Black Lives Matter supporters confronted business owner Fadi Faouri, as seen in video taken by Daily Caller field reporter Jorge Ventura.

One of the activists ask Faouri, “Does black lives matter?” The store owner replies, “If you’re a good person, I will care about you. If you’re a bad person…pffft.”

With several other BLM supporters surrounding him and multiple people recording him, the BLM supporter then asks, “Does Breonna Taylor matter?” The business owner replies, “I don’t know.”

The activist aggressively asks, “What do you mean you don’t know?” Another person in the crowd comes forward and asks, “How you don’t know if it doesn’t matter?”

Faouri defends himself during the tense encounter, “You’re trying to intimidate me.”

More people in the crowd become agitated with his answer and want him to explain his stance of impartiality on the hot-button topic.

“I’m not playing that game,” the gun-toting store owner proclaims.

The crowd grows larger, and people steadily move closer to Faouri.

The store owner declares, “Nobody can intimidate me.”

While most of the group walks away, one woman who claims to be a documentary filmmaker confronts Faouri, and tells him the details from the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor. The store owner responds by saying, “That’s not my f***ing business.”

Not satisfied with the response, she retorts, “It should be your business, because all lives matter, right? You just said, ‘All lives matter.’ You can say that, but it’s the color black that is the issue.”

“You have an issue with that, I don’t have an issue,” Faouri rebuts. “I don’t see color.”

“I don’t care, white or black bulls****, I see you as a human being, that’s all that I care about,” he says.

“I don’t care about white, black, purple, green, whatever the f*** it is,” he states. “I don’t believe in color.”

Assault on police Campos media Coastal highway fight Facebook videos H2oi Intelwars Maryland state troopers Ocean city maryland police Ocean city police department viral videos

Insane video shows huge police presence during unauthorized beach car rally event as one rally-goer assaults group of officers

A raucous melee broke out in Ocean City, Maryland, on Friday night during an unauthorized pop-up car rally event.

Though unauthorized, the annual weekend-long event — titled H2Oi — draws hundreds and sometimes thousands of attendees from across the region.

Viral video caught the moment a suspect launched himself out of the crowd and onto the back of a Maryland law enforcement official who was attempting to detain another suspect.

What are the details?

According to a Saturday morning report from The Delmarva Daily Times, the incident — which reportedly took place near Baltimore Avenue in Ocean City — sparked a large police presence that resulted with one suspect jumping onto the back of a police officer during a scuffle.

A now-viral video posted by Campos Media shows a rally-goer break from the crowd as he jumps on top of at least one law enforcement official. At the time, the officer was, along with other law enforcement officials, attempting to take into custody another suspect in the middle of the road.

It is unclear at the time of this reporting why officers were attempting to detain the first suspect.

The media page captioned the video, “The police have their hands full this evening as a result of the unsanctioned H2O event being held in Ocean City. The video below shows footage of a police officer being assaulted by a young man.”

What is in the video?

The video begins by showing what appears to be illegal fireworks shooting across the sky. The town’s streets are lined with rally-goers who begin shouting and congregating as a Maryland State Police cruiser quickly flies onto the scene.

“Run! Run!” members of the crowd shout in the video.

Two Maryland State Police officers can be seen exiting the vehicle, and begin detaining what appears to be a male, who runs from the officers and into the road. Congregants can be heard screaming and hysterically cheering as officers tackle the suspect onto the pavement.

As the officers’ backs are turned, a second unidentified person, who also appears to be male, flies out of the crowd and jumps onto the back of at least one of the state troopers. A group of officers then engage the second suspect in a desperate struggle to cuff him, and even more officers, who arrived on the scene, fight to contain both the first and second suspects.

The video then shifts focus to the altercation between the second suspect and the officers.

As the officers converge on the second person, what appears to be a glass bottle flies from the crowd and smashes on the pavement, showering those in the area with glass fragments, just inches from where the police were seconds before.

The crowd’s presence thickens, and people can be heard screaming and shouting “police brutality” as the second suspect fights back and rolls around on the ground, engaging with police.

Sirens can be heard approaching the scene as the officers scuffle to cuff the second suspect.

Image source: Facebook video screenshot

Police are eventually successful in cuffing both suspects, and several masked officers approach the crowd — a portion of which are closing in to get a better look at this point — with what appears to be an aerosol spray canister.

Members of the crowd erupt with profanity. One man shouts, “Suck a d***, b****!” as the officer attempts to drive the crowd back.

“F*** you and your mama!” another man can be heard yelling.

According to the Daily Times, police were forced to close down the intersection of Baltimore Avenue and 30th Street in the coastal beach town to break up the unruly crowd.

The outlet reported that following the incident, police were forced to deal with “disorderly crowds” in the area of the scuffle.

“One officer approached the sidewalk shouting for people to leave as he began to spray a smelly substance to encourage them to disperse, yet many lingered, changing [sic], ‘H2O! H2O!” the outlet reported.

TheBlaze reached out to the Maryland State Police, which directed all press inquiries to the Ocean City Police Department.

The Ocean City Police Department did not provide a statement in time for publication.

What else?

Last week, Ocean City, Maryland, Mayor Rick Meehan and Ocean City Police warned people about attending the annual, unauthorized rally this year.

According to WTTG-TV, Meehan said that it was especially problematic this year, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, for rally-goers to converge on the small beach town.

“Speeding, reckless driving, spinning of tires, demonstration driving,” Meehan said of previous years’ problems surrounding the event.

Meehan said that in 2019, authorities handed out approximately 1,400 citations and arrested more than 100 people.

WTTG reported that a “large contingency of law enforcement officials” would be waiting for the rally-goers in Ocean City, and Chief Ross Buzzuro said that hundreds of officers are set to be on duty throughout the weekend.

Carlos valdez Derlin newey Intelwars Papa john's delivery tiktok Tiktok Videos viral videos

89-year-old man who works 30 hours a week as a Papa John’s delivery driver gets a $12,000 ‘tip’ — and his reaction is priceless

An online fundraiser for 89-year-old Derlin Newey — who works 30 hours a week at a Papa John’s in Roy, Utah, in order to pay his bills — received more than $12,000 in donations after he went viral on the internet earlier this month.

A video captured the incredible moment a local family delivered the donation to the incredibly hardworking elderly man.

What are the details?

Newey unknowingly gained internet fame on TikTok earlier this month when he delivered pizza to a family.

Carlos Valdez and his family recorded their interaction with Newey, who engaged the family in kind and polite conversation while he delivered their food.

Valdez and his family boast more than 53,000 followers on the popular video-sharing platform.

Valdez told KSL-TV that Newey often delivers pizza to the family’s home and greets them in a typical fashion each time, chirping, “Hello, are you looking for some pizza?”

Valdez says that the family has grown so fond of the delivery man that they request him each time they order their Papa John’s.

The family shared the footage to their TikTok account, which drew appreciation from their followers and quickly went viral.

Following fans’ thirst to know more about Newey, Valdez decided to create a fundraiser for the elderly Papa John’s employee. He set up the donation through a Venmo account, which drew in donations from across the country.

“Somebody at that age should not be working that much,” Valdez said.

What did the family do next?

The Valdez family later started a fundraiser for Newey, and ended up raising $12,069 for the elderly man, who lives alone in his mobile home.

On Tuesday, the Valdez family delivered the donation to a tearful Newey via check.

Valdez told Newey, “We collectively collected a gift for you, and I’m here to deliver that gift to you on behalf of the TikTok community.”

A clearly emotional Newey cried, “How do I ever thank you? I don’t know what to say.”

The family also presented him with a custom-made T-shirt reading “Hello, are you looking for some pizza?”

Valdez added that he hopes the donation will take some financial strain off of the elderly gentleman.

“He needed this,” Valdez said. “I’m just glad we could help him. We just need to treat people with kindness and respect — the way he does. He stole our hearts.”

Black lives matter demonstrations Black pick-up truck Hollywood protests Intelwars Los Angeles Police Department Protesters attack viral videos

VIDEO: Crowd swarms pickup during Hollywood protest after driver strikes protester. As things get crazy, pickup speeds off.

Thursday night protests in Hollywood, California, saw one demonstrator struck by a vehicle as they were reportedly blocking the road.

What are the details?

According to
KABC-TV, demonstrators marched through Hollywood Thursday night in protest of police brutality and the recent indictment announcement in the Breonna Taylor case.

During one incident, a pickup was seen attempting to maneuver its way through a crowd of protesters on Sunset Boulevard.

The LAPD, in a statement posted to Twitter, addressed one of the many incidents,
captioning it, “The LAPD is aware of an incident in Hollywood involving several vehicles and a large group of protesters. Here is the information we can verify at this time.”

The statement said, “Just after 7:00 pm Thursday evening, a group of more than 300 protesters marched through Hollywood. While there were isolated reports of vandalism, the group was largely peaceful. The group eventually made its way onto Sunset Boulevard.”

The LAPD said that a blue pickup truck that was traveling down Sunset Boulevard “became involved in an altercation” as it attempted to make its way through the crowd.

While attempting to get away from the protest, the driver reportedly struck a protester who was standing in the road. The protester was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for minor injuries.

“Shortly after 9:00 pm a blue pick-up truck traveling on Sunset maneuvered through the crowd and became involved in an altercation,” the LAPD’s statement continued. “As the driver attempted to get away from the situation, he struck a protester standing in the street. That individual was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.”

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.

What else?

A video shared on social media shows the moments leading up to the driver of the blue pickup truck striking the protester, who has what appears to be a sign in their hands and can be seen sliding on their back across the ground.

After the truck struck the protester, the crowd began to swarm the pickup. As tension built, the pickup driver sped off.

People can be heard screaming and shouting “Oh my God” as the driver leaves the scene.

A social media user shared the clip on Twitter, captioning it, “Full Clip, Truck hits protestor [sic], protestors [sic] swarm vehicle to apprehend/stop driver, Driver flees scene, runs completely over the protestor [sic] he hit.”

The LAPD in its statement did not confirm that the protester in question was “completely” run over as the driver left the scene, as reported on social media, or if the protester was in the direct path of the blue pickup truck as it drove away, striking them a second time.

Breonna taylor protests Breonna taylor riots car chase Intelwars Los angeles protests Reginald denny viral videos

Man drives through protest in a Prius, gets chased down by cars and attacked by protesters

There were protests in Los Angeles on Thursday night following the grand jury’s decision not to indict police officers on homicide charges in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky. Hundreds of protesters demonstrated in the streets of the Hollywood neighborhood in California, where a wild car chase broke out after a driver attempted to drive through a crowd of people.

Videos on social media show a white Toyota Prius slowly turn down a street at around 9 p.m., despite the intersection being blocked by protesters.

“It wasn’t traveling at a fast speed — it was inching forward, trying to get past, and that upset people,” Christian Monterrosa, a freelance photojournalist who was covering the protest, told the Los Angeles Times.

Demonstrators punch and kick the car as it weaves through the crowd. After the car makes the turn, the protesters pursue the Prius.

A black pickup truck that was involved with the Breonna Taylor protest chased after the Prius. Video taken by KCAL-TV’s helicopter shows the truck accelerating to get in front of the Prius and then stopping in the middle of the road to prevent the Prius from escaping.

The driver of the pickup gets out and attempts to remove the driver from the Prius. Meanwhile, a green Ford Mustang comes up from the rear to try to box in the Prius. The Prius slams into the Mustang.

People gather around the Prius and attempt to open the doors of the car. They attack the vehicle with metal rods, skateboards, and a pole for a “Black Lives Matter” flag, and one person throws a bicycle at the car’s rear window.

The Prius then drives away, but it was detained by police a few blocks away.

The LAPD released a statement regarding the Prius incident as well as an earlier situation where a truck hit a protester, causing injury.

“A black pickup truck leading the protests accelerated and pinned that white Prius in, forcing it to come to a stop,” the LAPD said in a statement. “The driver of the Prius attempted to flee the area and reversed into a green Mustang behind it. That vehicle was also participating in the protest.”

“Both the drivers of the pick-up truck and the green Mustang attempted to extract the driver of the Prius from his vehicle,” LAPD said. “However, that driver was able to get away from the scene.”

The police said that there were no injuries from the Prius incident. LAPD added, “All of the drivers involved in both altercations have been identified by Hollywood Officers and the investigation is continuing.”

A police official gave an update on the Prius situation to KNBC reporter Robert Kovacik.

“The white Prius, similarly, was attacked by several protesters who pried his door open and punched him several times while he was inside of his Prius,” the officer said. “He stepped on the gas to try to escape from that attack and may or may not have struck one of the protesters, we have not located a victim yet of that crime if there was one.”

The Hollywood Police Department estimates that 350 participated in the protest. Capt. Steve Lurie, who leads the Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollywood Division, said that 20 protesters were “violent.”

On Friday morning, “Reginald Denny” was a trending topic on Twitter because of the incident. Commenters were making a correlation between the Prius chase and Reginald Denny, a construction truck driver who was yanked from his vehicle and nearly beaten to death after being smashed in the head with a cinder block during the 1992 Los Angeles riots.

On Wednesday night, a car plowed through a crowd of people at a Breonna Taylor protest in Denver. The driver has been detained, according to the Denver Police Department.

Breonna taylor protests Intelwars Larynzo johnson Louisville metropolitan police department Louisville police officers shot Major aubrey gregory Officer returns to work Officer robinson desroches Riots Social Media Twitter viral videos

Louisville police officer shot during Breonna Taylor riots walks in for roll call one night after attack — and the response is fantastic

One of two Louisville, Kentucky, police officers who were shot during Wednesday night protests showed up for roll call the very night after he was shot and hospitalized.

What’s a brief history here?

A suspect — identified as 26-year-old Larynzo Johnson — reportedly opened fire on two officers, identified as Maj. Aubrey Gregory and Officer Robinson Desroches, during Wednesday night unrest following the announcement of an indictment in the Breonna Taylor case.

Authorities arrested and charged Johnson with two counts of assault in the first degree and 14 counts of wanton endangerment in connection with the assault on Gregory and Desroches.

You can read more about the indictment in the Taylor case here.

What are the details?

Viral video shows the moment Gregory — wearing a hooded sweatshirt that appears to read “Nobody cares, work harder” — walked into a room where roll call was being held.

Gregory was shot in the hip during the Wednesday night protests and transported to a local hospital for treatment. Desroches was shot in the abdomen and was taken to the hospital for emergency surgery. Desroches remains hospitalized in stable condition and is expected to recover from the attack.

In the video of Gregory’s return, raucous applause erupts as the major, who is commander of the Louisville Metro Police Department’s Special Operation Division, humbly makes his entrance and waves off the attention.

On Thursday night, the department shared video of Gregory’s return to its Facebook page, writing, “Last night, two LMPD officers were shot in the line of duty during our response to the local protests.”

“We’re happy to share this short video of Majory [sic] Gregory, walking in to [sic] one of our roll calls less than 24 hours after being shot,” the posting continued. “Major Gregory is still recovering from his injury and is not back to full duty … yet.”

The post concluded, “The other officer shot is still recovering.”

At the time of this reporting, the video has been liked more than 9,600 times.

Anything else?

Johnson, who was taken into custody Wednesday night, is set to be arraigned on Friday.

In a statement, LMPD interim Chief Robert Schroeder said that the attack “could have been so much worse.”

“Last night’s situation could have been so much worse for our officers and for the people who were protesting when the gunfire rang out,” Schroeder said according to the Louisville Courier Journal.

“We are extremely fortunate these two officers will recover.”

The outlet reported that Johnson’s arrest citation said the suspect’s actions “showed an extreme indifference to the value of human life.”

Andrea Mitchell Reports Intelwars MSNBC Ruth Bader Ginsburg Videos viral videos

MSNBC interviews 10-year-old girl about the significance  of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing

MSNBC recently interviewed a 10-year-old girl on the legacy of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Ginsburg died on Friday at the age of 87 following several bouts with cancer.

What are the details?

According to a Thursday report from Newsbusters, MSNBC’s Geoff Bennett took to the streets of Washington, D.C., where he encountered a family with two young children.

Bennett, who was outside the Supreme Court, spoke to the many mourners gathered to pay their respects to the late justice.

Speaking to the child’s mother, Bennett asked, “Why was it so important for you to be here, to bring your kids, and to participate in this?”

The woman, identified as parent Meredith Becker, responded, “Ruth Bader Ginsburg was an absolute living legend. She did so much in her time here on this earth. And I thought it was only responsible as a parent to be respectful and pay respect to her for all of the amenities that she has allowed us, particularly as women, particularly as Jewish women, and also men, too, have afforded us opportunities in fights that we will never know from.”

What did the kids say?

Bennett then turned to Meredith’s children, 13-year-old Sam and 10-year-old Alana.

Bennett asked Sam, “What does [Ginsburg’s] passing mean to you, what is her legacy as you see it?”

The 13-year-old responded, “So first off, it’s really, really sad that she had to go, especially right before the election. She’s done so many great things for this country with equal rights and all. So just really, it’s tragic altogether.”

Bennett then turned to Alana, and asked her how she felt about the passing of the longtime justice.

The 10-year-old responded, “This is going to be the beginning of an absolute nightmare because she is no longer here to help the world.”

He concluded, “Thank you, thanks to your mom and your brother for your time this morning. … These are perspectives that we’ve been hearing all morning as we’ve talked to people paying tribute to the late justice as a trailblazer, an icon, a defender of human rights, women’s rights, and a defender of liberal ideals, a protector of progressive policies.”

Black police officer Breonna taylor protests Intelwars Rioters scream at police officers Social Media Videos viral videos

Rioters scream racial slurs at black police officer during Breonna Taylor protests. His stoic response is everything.

A Los Angeles police officer kept his cool even as angry rioters hurled insults and racial epithets at him during Wednesday night protests in the city.

Protests erupted across the country Wednesday night after a grand jury decided against bringing homicide charges against the officers involved in the shooting death of Louisville, Kentucky, resident Breonna Taylor.

You can read more about the indictment here.

What are the details?

According to a report from the
Daily Mail, demonstrators converged on an LAPD precinct to demonstrate following the announcement of an indictment of former Louisville police Officer Brett Hankison in the Breonna Taylor case.

Reports
say that hundreds of demonstrators marched in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday night to demand Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey leave her position, apparently in response to the grand jury’s decision in Kentucky.

Video captures the moment a group of angry agitators scream profanities and slurs at the black police officer. Some demonstrators wave their hands in his face and hold up their middle fingers, while others shine lights, blow smoke, and even mimic shooting a gun at the officer in question.

At least two members of the raucous group can be seen wearing Halloween masks.

Members of the angry group can be heard calling the officer a “b****” and even a “n****” for the police.

The unidentified officer stoically stands by, staring the demonstrators in their faces and refusing to be moved by their anger.

Social media user and self-identified videographer and editor Tomas Morales shared video footage of the incident on Twitter, captioning it, “LOS ANGELES: Agitators yell slurs at black police officer.”

At the time of this reporting, the video has been viewed more than 924,000 times.

According to the
Los Angeles Times, the large group of protesters demonstrated outside the city’s Hall of Justice.

Willie Baker, who has shown up to protest each Wednesday for the last several months, told the outlet that many more people came out to demonstrate following the news of the Taylor indictment.

“More should have been indicted,” he insisted. “If we do something, we go to jail like that. It’s time to start locking up the police, too.”

Vincent Irby, identified by the outlet as a criminal defense attorney, told the outlet that the decision didn’t surprise him.

“I understood this was going to come down to legalese, and I had a sneaking suspicion it would come down to this,” he told the Times.

Kat Pavplek, a friend of Irby, added, “Nothing has reformed, nothing has changed, and [police] keep killing people.”

LAPD Officer Mike Chance told the outlet that no arrests were made during the protest.

Face mask arrest Face mask debate Face mask videos face masks Intelwars Mask mandate Ohio face masks viral videos

VIDEO: Ohio mother arrested and tased for not wearing mask at son’s middle school football game held outside

A woman was tased and arrested at a football game after she reportedly refused to wear a face mask. Unbelievable video shows a mother in the stands during her son’s middle school football game getting into a physical altercation as a police officer struggles to arrest her in Logan, Ohio.

According to the Ohio Star, Alecia Kitts drove an hour and a half to watch her son’s seventh-grade football game. While she was rooting for the visiting team from the Marietta City School District, she was reportedly approached by a police officer for not wearing a face mask. In the video, Kitts appears to be properly socially distancing from other families in the stands, which is outside.

The encounter gets physical as the police officer attempts to arrest the mother, and she resists. The woman repeatedly tells the officer to “get off of me!” She screams, “You’re not arresting me for nothing, I ain’t doing nothing wrong!”

After two minutes of struggle, the police officer is seen tasing the woman.

The people in the stands are taken aback that the woman is tased.

“Tasing this lady over not wearing a damn mask,” a witness can be heard saying in the video.


Woman arrested for not wearing a mask.

youtu.be

“Sources indicate that Kitts was charged with criminal trespass and released on her own recognizance,” the Ohio Star reported.

Tiffany Kennedy, the woman who filmed the video, claimed that Kitts had not been warned about not wearing a mask prior to the cop approaching her. Kennedy alleged that Kitts has asthma and that’s the reason why she was not wearing a mask. From the video, Kitts appears to have an American flag-themed mask in her back pocket of her shorts.

Kennedy pointed out the female officer who is seen running toward the Logan police officer and Kitts at the end of the video was not wearing a mask.

The Logan Police Department confirmed the encounter and told the Marietta Times that the incident is under investigation.

Logan athletic director Theresa Schultheiss told the Times that Kitts and her mother were the only two in a crowd of 300 fans who were “having issues” complying with the state’s mask requirement.

“This rule has been in effect since we were told we could play,” Schultheiss said. “Everyone that came through ticketing tonight was reminded, we had regular announcements over the PA reminding you that mouths and noses needed to be covered and we had signs at the bathrooms.”

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine (R) issued a mandatory face mask order on July 22.

All individuals in Ohio must wear facial coverings in public at all times when:

  • At an indoor location that is not a residence
  • Outdoors, but unable to maintain six-foot social distance from people who are not household members
  • Waiting for, riding, driving, or operating public transportation, such as a taxi, a car service, or a private car used for ride-sharing.

The order requires only those 10 years old or older to wear a mask. Additional exclusions include:

  • Those with a medical condition or a disability or those communicating with someone with a disability;
  • Those who are actively exercising or playing sports;
  • Those who are officiants at religious services;
  • Those who are actively involved in public safety; or
  • Those who are actively eating or drinking.

Armed militia Breonna taylor indictment Brett hankison Intelwars Louisville police officer Louisville riots Maga militia Social Media Videos viral videos

Louisville police officer goes viral after giving advice to ‘armed MAGA militia’

A Louisville, Kentucky, police officer has gone viral in a video of him offering advice to what some social media users refer to as an “armed MAGA militia.”

What are the details?

In a video, the unidentified officer can be seen speaking to members of what appears to be a militia group.

The group claimed they were attending a Louisville protest in response to the indictment against former Louisville police officer Brett Hankison connected to the case of the death of Breonna Taylor.

In the video, the officer can be heard telling the group that they should avoid certain areas of Louisville and offered ideas on where the group should stand. He then warned them that if they didn’t follow his instructions, they would be arrested.

“If you go down there, if you choose to, there is a grassy area along the north side of the road,” the officer says.

“Those people who want to come down today to exercise your Second Amendment rights or your First Amendment rights —”

A female militia member interjected, “We’re not protesters. That’s not what we’re here for, that’s why we’re sitting over here.”

“I’m going to watch over and protect everybody,” he continued. “That’s all I do, right? Just be prepared later on today. There will be several hundred, several thousand [demonstrators]. … But don’t try to come on Central, and don’t try to take that south sidewalk. I don’t want any of that kind of stuff to happen, OK?”

The female responded, “We’re here for y’all, we’re just here on standby. We’re not out there in that rally, we don’t want to be in that rally, because last time we kinda got shoved, like we were counterprotesters, and that’s not what we do.”

The officer adds, “I just wanted to make sure you knew that don’t try to come to those areas. Anybody that tries to come in there is going to have a problem.”

Twitter user Bob the Comrade shared video of the incident on Twitter, captioning it, “#Louisville Police giving armed MAGA militia members directions on where to stand, what to expect, which streets to avoid.”

The video has been viewed more than 500,000 times at the time of this reporting.

Woman goes berserk, trashes supermarket after employee tells her to follow COVID-19 store regulations

A U.K. woman has gone viral after a video caught her raging about a supermarket’s directional aisle markers and demolishing a wine display.

What are the details?

According to the Telegraph, the incident — which took place in May, but was recently released and is now going viral on the internet — featured an irate, unnamed woman, who was shopping at the Lingfield High Street Co-op grocery store in Surrey, England.

The outlet reported that the woman went berserk after a store employee reportedly reprimanded her after she allegedly ignored the one-way system the store used to enforce social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Metro reported that the woman also began “kicking and punching” a glass divider after staff attempted to enforce the store’s mandatory safety measures.

In the video, the clearly irate woman can be seen tearing down two product shelves, leaving puddles of wine and broken glass in her angry wake.

She can also be heard screaming, “I’ve done nothing wrong!” and repeatedly hammers her hands against a glass divider in the grocery store.

What else?

The outlet also reported that a store employee — who described the incident in detail — said that the woman also threw a basket of groceries that contained milk and eggs.

“One day in May at the height of lockdown, a female customer became very agitated when we asked her to follow the store’s one way system,” the unnamed employee said. “She got very angry and started shouting at me and my colleague who were serving customers from behind the protective till screen.”

The employee noted that the woman then approached the workers, who were standing behind the protective glass, and took her anger to another level.

“She stormed up to the till screen and just flipped out, punching and kicking it before rushing over to the alcohol aisle where she started grabbing bottles of wine, sending them smashing them to the ground,” the employee added.

The employee continued, “Two entire shelves of glass bottles came crashing down. She then picked up a basket containing milk and eggs and threw it across the store.”

Jo Whitfield, Co-op Foods chief executive, told Metro, “The role played by shop workers in serving their communities is nothing short of amazing, yet they have to contend with unprecedented levels of violence and abuse on a daily basis.”

Autistic child shot Body cam footage Golda barton Intelwars Linden cameron Officer involved shootings Salt lake city police viral videos

Bodycam footage of police officer shooting autistic teen paints painfully grim picture after mother calls cops on ‘sick’ son — who is afraid of police

Utah authorities have
released bodycam footage showing a Utah police officer shooting a 13-year-old boy with autism during a mental health call.

What are the details?

Salt Lake City authorities released the footage on Monday, showing an unnamed officer shooting 13-year-old Linden Cameron
during a Sept. 9 encounter in the city.

Linden’s mother, Golda Barton, phoned authorities when her son reportedly began experiencing a mental health emergency.

“He’s sick,” Barton told the dispatcher who answered the emergency call. “He needs to go to the hospital.”

Barton also told dispatchers that she was looking for a crisis intervention team to assist her son. She added, however, that her son had threatened to shoot one of her co-workers and break the windows in their home.

She also told dispatchers that her son had been involved in a “shootout” in Nevada, as well as a high-speed chase with police, according to audio released by the department.

Barton told dispatchers during the call that her father was reportedly killed by a sheriff’s deputy earlier in the year and that her son “does not like cops at all.”

“That’s why we need a mental health worker,” she added. “It’s super important.”

According to previous reports, the child suffers from Asperger’s syndrome and experiences separation anxiety.

Salt Lake City police officers responded to Barton’s home, where she told them that her son — whom she described as an out-of-control narcissist —was experiencing a mental health episode.

Barton, in the video, told the officers her son likely had a BB gun or pellet gun or prop gun, adding that she did not believe it was a real gun.

Responding officers told Barton that even if the teen was not armed that they would have to proceed and approach him as if he were, according to protocol.

“Unfortunately, we have to treat them all as if they are,” an officer told her.

Barton told the officers that she understood.

She remained behind as the officers began chasing the teen and demanding that he stop. When he refused, an officer fired several shots at the teen, striking him.

While on the ground, the teen said, “I don’t feel good. Tell my mom I love her.”

At the time, Sgt. Keith Horrocks of the Salt Lake City Police Department said that officers were responding to a call reporting a “violent psych issue” involving a juvenile “having a mental health episode” and “making threats to some folks with a weapon.”

None of the officers involved in the call have been identified at the time of this reporting, and the department has not yet announced whether any of the officers involved in the call were placed on administrative duty pending an investigation.

An independent police investigation is being conducted.

A GoFundMe page for the teen, who is still hospitalized, and his family has received more than $99,000 in donations at the time of this writing.

Anything else

On Monday, former Salt Lake City Police Chief Chris Burbank said that he couldn’t understand how an officer of the law could shoot a 13-year-old even in crisis.

“This is not an adult in mental health crisis. This is a 13-year-old,” he told KSL-FM. “I don’t know why you get to the point where you pull your gun out of the holster in this circumstance.”

He added, “I’m really struggling to understand why deadly force was used, when there are so many other options available to police today. There is hands-on physical, there are tasers, there is pepper spray, there are batons. What was it that caused the need for a physical confrontation? The threat to the community was minimal, if at all.”

“If [Cameron] had a gun and pointed it at a police officer,” he insisted. “That is the only [rational] explanation in my mind.”

Andy ngo Antifa protesters Black Lives Matter Intelwars Portland riots Social Media Twitter Videos viral videos

Black man goes on profane rant against ‘Antifa’ rioters stirring up trouble in Portland: ‘You ain’t from here, motherf***er!’

The moment a black man purporting to be a Portland, Oregon, resident went off on demonstrators has gone viral.

In the video, the black man can be heard shouting at a group of protesters, complaining that they are not from the area and are only there to cause problems.

What are the details?

Journalist Andy Ngo shared the video Sunday evening on Twitter,
captioning it, “You ain’t from here motherf—er! An angry black Portland driver gets out of his car and yells at the antifa rioters. They’re stunned and speechless.”

In the video, an unnamed black man can be seen exiting his vehicle.

He is dressed in a pair of shorts, a T-shirt, and a hat, and begins accusing the group of coming to Portland to stir up trouble.

As he gets out, he says, “I’ve got something to say. Yeah. What do you represent? You don’t represent this motherf***er!”

He turns on those filming and at least one demonstrator in close proximity, saying, “Whose house is there? Whose house is this at the corner right here? You don’t know! Because you ain’t from here, motherf***er! But you come here and got a little motherf***er situation for us, how we’re supposed to be. You ain’t from here, you got a little situation for us, n****.”

“You ain’t from this motherf***er!” he shouts. “You don’t know what we went through, motherf***er!

At the time of this writing, Ngo’s video has been viewed more than 231,000 times.

Journalist Kitty Shackleford
shared a concerning clip to Twitter on Sunday featuring two men in a pickup truck surrounded by demonstrators on a Portland street.

As protesters converge on the truck, members demand its occupants “say Black Lives Matter.”

The camera focuses on the truck’s passenger being confronted by the mob as its members order to him to “say Black Lives Matter, homie!”

“It lets us know that you’re cool!” another person can be heard shouting from the crowd.

It goes south from there.

“Say f***ing Black Lives Matter right now!” another person demands.

A subsequent
clip from the same social media user shares what appears to be the same truck with its passenger window smashed.

The driver of the vehicle can be heard asking, “Who did this? You f***ing p***y! Who did it?”
