  1. Yeah, that loco weed will make you say stupid stuff. https://www.officer.com/on-the-street/news/21027055/man-threatens-louisiana-trooper-during-traffic-stop Man Threatens Louisiana Trooper During Traffic Stop A Baton Rouge man pulled over Wednesday for not wearing a seat belt and driving without a license plate threatened a Louisiana State Police trooper by saying he would "do to law enforcement what the shooter did a while back." THE ADVOCATE, BATON ROUGE, LA. OCTOBER 12, 2018 0 Tweet Share Melvin J. Amar Jr. LOUISIANA STATE POLICE BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -- A Baton Rouge man pulled over Wednesday for not wearing a seat belt and driving without a license plate threatened a Louisiana State Police trooper by saying he would "do to law enforcement what the shooter did a while back," according to the man's arrest report. The driver, 42-year-old Melvin J. Amar Jr., was referencing the 2016 ambush of Baton Rouge law enforcement officers that left three dead and three more injured, police said. Amar, of 224 Howard St., Baton Rouge, was arrested on simple assault, public intimidation and retaliation, no seat belt, vehicle license required, driver must be licensed and no insurance. The encounter between Amar and the troopers started around 10:45 a.m. Wednesday near the intersection of Burbank Drive and GSRI Avenue. The trooper did a U-turn to pull Amar over after seeing that he didn't have a license plate and wasn't wearing a seat belt. When the trooper confronted Amar about the infractions, Amar became agitated and said he didn't need to wear his seat belt because he's an adult, the report says, adding that his temporary license plate had flown out the window. The trooper then discovered that Amar didn't have current insurance on his vehicle, which meant his vehicle would be towed. As the trooper started writing up Amar's traffic ticket, Amar verbally threatened him and made hand gestures of shooting a gun at him, according to the report. A second trooper was called to assist. While Amar was being transported, he told the trooper that he would shoot the trooper's family and that the trooper needed to get "a new place to stay after tonight." He also threatened to sue both troopers, according to the report. The trooper also noted in his report that Amar had a baggy of "green leafy material" inside his sock. He also found a Xanax pill underneath the cushions in the back of his unit where Amar had been sitting. ——— ©2018 The Advocate, Baton Rouge, La.

  2. https://privateofficernews.org/tennessee-ordered-to-stop-license-suspensions-for-indigence/ Tennessee ordered to stop license suspensions for indigence October 18, 2018 NASHVILLE, Tenn October 18 2018 A federal judge in Nashville has ordered the state to stop suspending the drivers licenses of people who are unable to pay traffic fines and court costs. In an order Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Aleta Trauger also instructed the state to allow indigent drivers to get suspended licenses back without fees. The lawsuit is the second of two similar cases. The earlier one dealt with people who lost licenses because they were unable to pay fines related to criminal convictions. Trauger ruled against the state in July, and Tennessee appealed. Plaintiffs argue the suspensions leave people unable to work, making it even harder for them to pay court debts. The rulings potentially affect tens of thousands of Tennesseans and could have implications for similar policies in dozens of other states. AP

  4. Thanks again to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. https://www.officer.com/command-hq/technology/security-surveillance/news/21027278/video-defendant-lunges-for-newport-oregon-police-officers-gun-in-court?utm_source=Officer.com+Newsday+E-Newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=CPS181015007&o_eid=5113J4674090I4J&rdx.ident[pull]=omeda|5113J4674090I4J Video: Defendant Lunges for Oregon Officer's Gun in Court A man tried to grab a police officer's gun in a Lincoln County courtroom this week and the Sheriff's Office said Thursday that a 1-year-old federal appeals decision contributed to the near-disaster. AIMEE GREEN OCTOBER 15, 2018 THE OREGONIAN, PORTLAND, ORE. 0 Tweet Share A man tried to grab a police officer's gun in a Lincoln County courtroom this week and the Sheriff's Office said Thursday that a 1-year-old federal appeals decision contributed to the near-disaster. LINCOLN COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE LINCOLN COUNTY, Oregon -- A man tried to grab a police officer's gun in a Lincoln County courtroom this week and the Sheriff's Office said Thursday that a 1-year-old federal appeals decision contributed to the near-disaster. A judge had denied a request by deputies to restrain defendant Scott Patrick Lemmon, 27, according to the Sheriff’s Office. In a scuffle caught on courtroom video Wednesday, a man identified by the Sheriff's Office as Lemmon suddenly stands up and lunges for a gun worn by a Newport police officer sitting at the counsel table nearby. The officer was able to turn away in a split second and a courthouse deputy quickly tackled Lemmon to the floor. Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Josh McDowall said the response averted a possible catastrophe. "There would have been a shootout in the courthouse,” McDowall said. “I don’t like to think about it. It would have been scary." This is the first case, he said, of a Lincoln County defendant grabbing for a gun since the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision came down in May 2017. The 9th Circuit ruled in favor of federal public defenders who challenged a U.S. Marshals policy of restraining criminal defendants with handcuffs, belly chains and leg shackles when they are escorted into the courtroom. Defense attorneys have long argued that handcuffs and other restraints often are unnecessary and can prejudice not only juries but judges by sending the message that defendants are so dangerous that authorities must control their ability to move freely. In August 2017, the 9th Circuit again sided with public defenders in a second ruling. The result: Many courthouses across the nine states covered by the 9th Circuit made dramatic changes to their rules for restraining criminal defendants. In Multnomah County, Lincoln County and a number of other Oregon counties, that has means judges first must give the OK for each and every defendant to be restrained during courtroom hearings. Previously, the decision whether to shackle was often left up to sheriff’s deputies in charge of courthouse security. Lemmon was on trial on allegations that he pointed a realistic-looking fake gun at two guests at a beachfront condo in Newport, threatened to kill them and then robbed them of cash and valuables, according to a probable cause affidavit. Because it was a trial, the Sheriff's Office had requested an "electronic restraint" -- an anklet concealed under his pants -- instead of leg irons that would be seen by jurors. If Lemmon acted up, deputies could shock him remotely with the press of a button. But a judge denied the request, and Lemmon was unrestrained when he lunged for the gun, McDowall said. An electronic anklet probably wouldn't have stopped the lunge for the officer’s gun, McDowall conceded. But he said if Lemmon had been wearing it and he had unholstered the gun, deputies could have incapacitated him an instant later with an electric shock. Defense attorneys, however, have sharply criticized the use of the shock anklets or similar devices, saying they're barbaric and can make defendants appear nervous, uneasy and jittery while on trial. The Sheriff's Office said the devices are effective as a deterrent and its deputies have rarely if ever had to shock a defendant. During Lemmon’s trial, deputies considered him high-risk because he was swiveling in his chair, leaning backward and forward and fidgeting, McDowall said. “They were catching him paying extra close attention to the officer’s gun,” McDowall said. “He kept looking at it.” McDowall commended the quick thinking of Newport Police Officer Jon Humphreys for turning away and the Sheriff’s Office employees -- Cpl. Giovanni Barbers and Deputy Lisa Mathies -- for tackling McDowall and handcuffing him. The Sheriff’s Office expects to pursue additional charges against Lemmon for the scuffle, McDowall said. -- Aimee Green

    Police Officers shot!!!!

    https://www.theblaze.com/news/2018/10/04/police-identify-74-year-old-disbarred-lawyer-as-suspect-in-shooting-of-seven-south-carolina-cops Police identify 74-year-old disbarred lawyer as suspect in shooting of seven South Carolina cops 3 hours Authorities identify the suspect in a shooting that killed a police officer and injured six more. (Image source: WPDE-TV video screenshot) Follow Sarah TaylorSTAFF WRITER POLITICAL VIEW CHRISTIAN LIBERTARIAN VALUES FAITH, FAMILY HERO JOHN THE BAPTIST Article GoalINFORM SHARE TWEET Authorities identified 74-year-old Frederick Hopkins, a disbarred lawyer, as the suspect in a Wednesday shooting in Florence, South Carolina, that killed one police officer and injured six more. What are the details behind the attack? Hopkins, who is also a Vietnam veteran, reportedly fired on three Florence County deputies with a high-powered rifle when they tried to serve a warrant Wednesday afternoon. According to CBS News, police were attempting to serve a warrant involving the suspect’s 27-year-old son for allegedly sexually assaulting a foster child in the home. Authorities reported that Hopkins’ son was also shot, but it is unclear at this time whether Hopkins or police shot him. Police say the suspect then took children hostage in the home, which resulted in a standoff that lasted for about two hours. After backup arrived to help the first three officers, Hopkins reportedly shot four more officers. One of the officers, Terrence Carraway, a 30-year veteran of the force, died from his injuries. Authorities ordered a bullet-resistant rescue vehicle to the scene in order to evacuate officers who had been shot. They were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. Afterward, the police department and the sheriff’s office were able to remove Hopkins from the home after he’d spoken with a negotiator and agreed to be taken into custody. What else? The suspect sustained a head injury during the standoff and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. The Daily Mail reported that the suspect is believed to have fallen at the scene. No children were injured during the standoff, and their whereabouts are unknown at this time. At the time of this writing, Hopkins remains in the hospital and has yet to be charged with a crime.

Marco Rubio during a CNN television event. (Larry French/Getty Images for SiriusXM) Follow Aaron ColenSTAFF WRITER POLITICAL VIEW MODERATE CONSERVATIVE VALUES CHRISTIAN HERO RAVI ZACHARIAS Article GoalINFORM SHARE TWEET One of the survivors of the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has left the March For Our Lives gun control movement that grew out of that tragedy, according to the Miami Herald. Cameron Kasky, who along with classmates David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez became one of the faces of gun control in America, said he was ready to move on from the group, but that his mind had been opened to different political perspectives in the process. Special: Media isn’t reporting Trump’s $195 billion win “…I met that person in Texas who got that semiautomatic weapon because that’s how they like to protect their family,” Kasky said on Fox News Radio on Wednesday. “I met the 50-some-odd percent of women who are pro-life, even though I thought it was preposterous that a woman could be pro-life and not pro-choice at the time. “I learned that a lot of our issues politically come from a lack of understanding of other perspectives and also the fact that so often young conservatives and young liberals will go into debate…trying to beat one another as opposed to come to an agreement.” What’s the big regret? One of Kasky’s most visible moments as a member of March For Our Lives was the town hall event broadcast on CNN, which was advertised as a forum to open a dialogue about gun issues and predictably devolved into emotional outbursts, finger pointing and grandstanding. Kasky found himself face-to-face with Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, and he gave the audience a made-for-TV moment that was rebroadcast and retweeted for days to follow. “Senator Rubio, it’s hard to look at you and not look down the barrel of an AR-15 and not look at Nikolas Cruz, but the point is you’re here and there are some people who are not,” Kasky told Rubio during the town hall, before aggressively asking the senator if he would stop taking money from the National Rifle Association. Kasky admits emotion got the best of him in that moment. “I look back on that and I say, you know what, there were people who had just been buried and when you’re looking at somebody that you find might in some way have been complicit in this murderer obtaining the weapon it’s hard not to say something like that,” Kasky said. “But, I went into that wanting less conversation and more to embarrass Rubio and that was my biggest flaw.” Kasky said his political views haven’t changed, but he wants to use his platform now to help people have more civil and productive bipartisan discussions. “I thought it was my responsibility to take all the things I was kicking myself for and to encourage others to avoid it,” Kasky told Fox News Radio.
