NYC Cops Attack Man for Walking Dog Without a Leash

Another case in the seemingly never-ending story of over-the-top policing. In this case Nicholson Gregoire was walking his dog when the police noticed the dog was not on a leash. He went inside his home to retrieve his ID, when the police broke in and a fight ensued.

NYC cops beat up black man inside his own home for walking his dog off leash

In dramatic footage provided to the New York Daily News, a Queens man had his head repeatedly bashed into a wall and punched during a dog walking incident that escalated out of control.

According to 25-year-old college student Nicholson Gregoire, he had just exited his home to walk his 5-month-old pit bull when police noticed the dog was not on a leash.

After he was asked for his ID, Gregoire reentered his home to retrieve it only to have the police repeatedly ring his door — causing the young man’s grandfather to open the door to them. After refusing to give the cops his ID — despite his grandfather’s pleas — the two cops rushed Gregoire and tackled him, setting off a wrestling match that was recorded by Gregoire’s girlfriend.

According to Gregoire’s attorney, Mark Crawford, “The police are alleging that my client answered the door and dragged them inside, to justify coming into the house. They had no basis to enter the premises.”

In the video, Gregoire can be seen fighting off the police while holding his ID in the air, saying, “Here it is.”

At that point it was too late, as the officers can be heard yelling, “Stop resisting,” a sentiment echoed by Gregoire’s girlfriend while she also pleaded with the two cops to stop.

“I’ve been watching the video over and over. I didn’t use any foul language. I don’t think I should have been arrested in my home for walking my dog. I was scared for my life. They have the guns,” Gregoire explained.

At one point, Gregoire put one officer in a chokehold, before he was wrestled down a staircase where the officers are joined by over a dozen other cops who attempt to pile on him.

As Gregoire holds onto a banister, one officer can be seen punching him repeatedly in the head before slamming his head into the wall, causing a fist-sized hole.

Gregoire was eventually subdued and taken into custody, charged with resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.

Police Arrest 2 in Minnesota BLM Shooting

The police apparently have arrested two suspects, although it isn’t clear whether they actually were involved in the shooting.

Minneapolis High School Students who had walked out to join march.

 

Police arrest two suspects in shooting of Minnesota Black Lives Matter protesters

Minneapolis police said on Tuesday they have arrested a 23-year-old white man and a 32-year-old Hispanic man in relation to the shooting of five people near a city police station where demonstrators have gathered for more than a week to protest the killing of an unarmed black man by officers.

The police said the younger suspect was arrested around 11:20 a.m. local time (1720 GMT) in the Minneapolis suburb of Bloomington, while the older man was arrested in his vehicle about 45 minutes later in south Minneapolis.

“We are sparing no efforts to bring any and all those responsible to justice,” Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges said after the first arrest. In an earlier video statement, she said she abhorred the attack on the demonstrators.

The police, however, have not yet confirmed a connection between the shooting and the protest. The police also said they will release the suspects’ names after charges are filed while the search for any additional suspects continues.

Police earlier said they were looking for three white male suspects in the shooting late on Monday. It occurred a block from the police station where protests have been held since the fatal Nov. 15 shooting of Jamar Clark, 24, Minneapolis police said in a statement.

None of the injuries in the Monday shooting were life-threatening and the wounded were taken to local hospitals.

The Black Lives Matter Minneapolis group protesting Clark’s killing said on its Facebook page that five unarmed protesters were shot by what it described as white supremacists who had been asked to leave the area and were followed out by protesters before they opened fire.

It is being reported that there is an email chain between white supremacists planning the shooting…

Emails reveal racists plotted confrontation with Black Lives Matters activists days before shooting

Three white men wearing bulletproof vests and covering their face with masks shot five Black Lives Matter protesters Monday night in Minneapolis — and some social media users are claiming the gunmen fired in self-defense.

The men, described by some witnesses as white supremacists, wounded five demonstrators shortly before 11 p.m. outside the city’s Fourth Precinct during an ongoing protest of the police shooting death of 24-year-old Jamar Clark.

Demonstrators say masked men wearing military-style clothing have been harassing them for days during the protests, and Black Lives Matter Minneapolis posted a video Friday of two men on their way to disrupt the protests.

White supremacists have discussed various strategies online for sparking confrontation at the demonstration, which they described as a “chimpout.”

“Do you know if the BLM n*****s are planning to protest again tomorrow, and if so, at what time?” one white supremacist asked in an email chain.

They agreed to wear camouflage clothing and display a four of clubs to identify each other, and the white supremacist agitators argued over whether they should carry guns or wear Guy Fawkes masks.

The white supremacist mocked “social justice warriors” and other anti-racist whites, who they described in psychosexual terms.

“Best to act as much like a beta white cuck as much as you can,” one the racists said.

The activists said groups of men had been appearing at the demonstration and “acting shady” since Friday, so they put together a “safety committee” to watch for potential agitators and escort them away from the protests.

That’s apparently what happened just before the shooting, when some of the protesters confronted three men, described by witnesses as two white men and possibly one Asian man.

Witnesses say the gunmen were trying to record demonstrators’ faces on cell phone video shortly before opening fire, and the two groups argued.

Then a group of protesters charged at the men and demanded they remove their masks, but witnesses said the men shouted back, “f*ck no,” and continued recording cell phone video.

A demonstrator, who spoke on camera with a mask covering his face, said one of the men was carrying a Black Lives Matter sign.

Al Qaeda Attack in Mali

Maili is a country in West Africa, where the legendary city of Timbuktu is located. It is a landlocked country which was formerly a French colony. This morning, at least 2 Al Qaeda Terrorists attacked the Radisson Hotel in Bamako, the capital city, and at one point held 170 hostages. Mali Special Forces, assisted by UN Troops have stormed the hotel, and it now appears that at least 27 people were executed by the attackers. Al Qaeda has claimed responsibility for the attack.

This appears to be a “me too” attack by Al Qaeda such as not to lose status against ISIS with their attack in Paris last week.

Jihadis Take More Than 100 Hostage at Hotel in Former French Colony of Mali

More than 100 people were reportedly taken hostage and at least three killed Friday by gunmen at a Radisson hotel in the city of Bamako, the capital of Mali, in another apparent jihadi attack directed at France. French troops were involved in operations against Islamic radicals in Mali, a former French colony, as recently as last year. A number of hostages have reportedly been freed by Malian forces, but the entire hotel has not yet been secured. From CNN:

Security forces have begun a counter-assault on a Malian hotel where gunmen took more than 100 hostages Friday morning, French President Francois Hollande told reporters in Paris on Friday afternoon.

The situation began around 7 a.m. at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Mali’s capital, Bamako, when two or three attackers stormed the hotel, firing guns and initially taking about 170 people hostage, officials said … By noon, the country’s state broadcaster, ORTM, reported that at least 80 of the hostages had been freed.

Hollande happens to have mentioned French counterterrorism activities in Mali in a public statement Thursday; in 2013 and 2014 French forces helped retake areas in the country’s north that had been seized by al Qaida–allied Islamic militants. Reuterssays that the gunmen who attacked the Radisson shouted “Allahu Akbar” as they stormed the hotel and that some guests who were able to recite verses of the Koran were allowed to go free.

Latest update off the wire –

The UN peacekeepers saw 12 corpses in the basement of the hotel and another 15 on the second floor, the UN official told Reuters on condition of anonymity. He added that the UN troops were still helping Malian authorities search the hotel.

And this from Jason Burke of the Guardian (UK)

If al-Mourabitoun, an al-Qaida-linked group, is indeed responsible for the Bamako siege it is a stunning example of how the deep rivalry between al-Qaida, founded in 1987 or 1988, and IS, founded in 2014, is responsible for a wave of violence across much of the Islamic world and, as we found out, last week, beyond.

IS broke away from al-Qaida and its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and the leader of al-Qaida, Ayman al-Zawahiri, detest each other.

The world of militancy is is riven with splits and doctrinal differences, personal animosities and grudges. There is also fierce competition for recruits, donations and attention.

Security services have long been aware of how violence can escalate when groups divide or fragment and the factions battle for supremacy, each trying to outdo the other. This may well be what has driven the timing of this new operation, the first high-profile such attack by al-Qaida for some time. The group is trying to steal back some of the limelight and dominate the news agenda again, as it once did so often and so effectively.

What appears clear is that the Paris attacks have intensified and accelerated a chaotic, dynamic reordering of alliances and capabilities within the broader landscape of Islamic militancy, meaning that an already hugely complex threat is increasingly difficult for security services to read.

Brutal Attack on Black Man in Bar By Neo-Nazi Earns Felony Charges

So…Three white supremacists jump a black guy, and this clown comes in after the black guy is down and out throwing kicks…

Your typical “courageous” Aryan thug.

Bar owner should have had the bouncers “escort” this clown out when he showed his Nazi tats – for no other reason than near half a million real Americans died to get rid of this scum the first time around.

Iowa neo-Nazi stomps helpless black man’s face — knocks out woman who tries to intervene

A white supremacist convicted felon repeatedly stomped a black man’s face during an argument over music at an Iowa bar.

Federal authorities charged 40-year-old Randy Joe Metcalf under the federal Hate Crime Act for the Jan. 12 beating, and he also faces state charges in the attack that left a 31-year-old man with a broken eye socket and other facial injuries, reported the Associated Press.

FBI agents said Metcalf had been drinking with his fiancé for several hours before they got into an argument with Lamarr Sandridge and his friends over the jukebox at a bar in Dubuque.

Witnesses said Metcalf had been showing off a large swastika tattoo on his abdomen, saying, “This is what I’m about.”

He has a second swastika tattoo on his shoulder and another tattoo on his chest that says, “FRYS,” a white supremacist Iowa prison gang.

During the argument over music, Metcalf used racial slurs toward Sandridge and two white women sitting with him, which FBI agents said then triggered a brawl.

Authorities said Metcalf’s friend, 41-year-old Jeremy M. Sanders, put Sandridge in a headlock, and the man’s son, 21-year Joseph Sanders, repeatedly punched the black man in the face until he fell motionless to the ground.

Metcalf then kicked and stomped the semi-conscious man’s face and head until a bartender tried to push him away.

But he continued stomping Sandridge’s face until the man’s friend, Sarah Kiene, tried to intervene — but he hit the 29-year-old woman in the face with the back of his hand, knocking her out and fracturing her cheek bone.

Witnesses said Metcalf then referred to Sandridge with a racial slur, and then said: “He got what he had coming.”

Metcalf has a lengthy and violent criminal history, with previous convictions for burglary, domestic abuse and child endangerment.

He was out on bond awaiting trial on state assault charges in connection with the bar brawl when he was arrested on the federal charge.

Metcalf has pleaded not guilty to assault, and his attorney denied the beating was racially motivated.

He faces up to 10 years in prison for the hate crime charge, if convicted.

Jeremy and Joseph Sanders each pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault charges and were sentenced to probation.
