But…Thanks for taking out the trash.

Georgia KKK imperial wizard killed after shooting at police during eight-hour standoff

An “imperial wizard” of the Ku Klux Klan died Friday after an hours-long standoff with police, WALB reports.

J.J. Harper exchanged fire with police during an 8-hour standoff in Dooly County following a domestic dispute. He was a well-known and active member of the KKK, law enforcement confirmed.

“Yes, he was. He had a membership drive on the courthouse steps,” Dooly County Sheriff’s deputy David Grantham told WALB.

During the standoff, “Harper exited and entered his residence multiple times wearing a bullet resistant vest, gas mask, and other weapons to include a long gun and handguns,” police said in a statement to the Telegraph.

Police told the station that during the standoff, Harper had vowed, “Someone’s going to die today.” He shot multiple rounds at police and officers returned fire before Harper walked inside his home and a gunshot was heard.

Harper was confirmed dead inside the home.

Fresno Police Shoot, Kill Unarmed Man…And Lie About It

More trigger happy cops…

Graphic video debunks Fresno cops’ account in fatal shooting of unarmed mentally-ill man

Newly-released footage undermines Fresno police’s claims regarding the shooting death of a 40-year-old mentally-ill man last September.

According to the Fresno Bee, the video captures the moments leading up to the shooting of Freddy Centeno by Officers Felipe Miguel Lucero and Zebulon Price.

The footage, taken from the officers’ body cameras, shows them approach Centeno and yell, “Get on the ground” for three seconds before opening fire from about 15 feet away. The officers shot nine times at Centeno, seven of which connected. Centeno is seen falling to the ground, at which point the officers order him to put his hands up.

The victim fell into a coma and died three weeks after the incident, which prompted local protests. Deputy Chief Robert Nevarez said at the time that “Officers commanded [Centeno] to raise his hands, and he grabbed for the object in his right front pocket and raised it towards them,” but that claim is not corroborated by the footage, as Centeno’s hands remained close to his side.

The object, which police believed to be a gun, was in fact a garden hose nozzle.

The Bee also reported that the two officers were not made aware of the fact that Centeno, who lived with family members at the time of his death, had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. They were responding to a resident’s report that a shirtless man identified himself as a federal agent and threatened her with a gun.

The family subsequently sued the department, but did not ask for a specific damages account, and is instead asking jurors to determine an award for damages on their own. The video was released on Thursday by attorneys for Centeno’s relatives.

“I’ve been a civil rights attorney for 29 years, and I’ve never seen a police shooting this bad,” said one of the attorneys, Humberto Guizar.

I used to do this years ago at a competitive level. In those days we had “good guy” and “Bad guy targets. The first of which you don’t shoot. I also had a couple of opportunities to shot on “Police” training ranges, where there are good and bad guy targets which pop up and you have to make a split second decision to shoot or not to shoot.  They would occasionally pop up a group with a woman holding a baby, and 2 or 4 bad guys surrounding her. The first guy up on the video is Jerry Miculek, who out and out is the best in the world on pistol. He shoots exclusively for Smith and Wesson, which makes very accurate revolvers. I don’t know if they train the city and local police like that anymore…

The guys above popping off shots like that killing Centeno…Indicate not.

Black Officer Charged in Dallas Shooting in 3 Days

Wow! It seems the Officers of the Law can be held accountable…If they are black or Asian.

Only took 3 days for the DA to file charges!

Why does this take so long in other places?

Farmers Branch officer charged with murder in off-duty shooting of Dallas teen

Officer Ken Johnson

In a move rarely seen in shootings involving police, an off-duty Farmers Branch officer has been charged with murder three days after fatally shooting a teenager and wounding another.

Officer Ken Johnson, 35, was arrested Wednesday night in the death of Jose Cruz, the Dallas 16-year-old who was shot after an “altercation” Sunday evening in Addison.

Johnson was also charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the shooting of Cruz’s classmate, Edgar Rodriguez, who is expected to survive.

“We had probable cause to make the arrest this evening,” Addison Police Chief Paul Spencer said in a written statement. “But this is a rapidly evolving situation, and it remains an active investigation.”

Johnson used a semi-automatic pistol to shoot Cruz and Rodriguez, according to an affidavit obtained by WFAA (Channel 8). Officers who were dispatched to the 14300 block of Marsh Lane found Johnson standing in the roadway, the affidavit states.

“It was further determined that Cruz’s death was caused by being intentionally shot by Johnson with a firearm,” the affidavit states.

Dallas County judges, however, sealed many of the warrants that were issued related to the case — including Johnson’s arrest warrants and multiple search warrants.

Cruz’s Dodge Challenger, Johnson’s Chevrolet Tahoe and data recorders from both vehicles were some of the items seized, court records say.

Authorities also obtained search warrants Wednesday — also sealed — for video from a business located near the shooting. It is unclear whether the video shows Johnson shooting the teens.

Spencer, the Addison police chief, said Wednesday that he expects several more weeks of investigation. An internal affairs inquiry by the Farmers Branch Police Department is ongoing.

Johnson’s attorney, Chris Livingston, questioned why the charges were filed without the case being presented to a grand jury. It “can only be explained by the fact that my client is a black police officer.”…Read The Rest Here...

Cop Who Shot Levar Jones Pleads Guilty

Another Bad Cop off the force…The bad news is a innocent citizen had to get shot to do it.

This one made news as the victim, complying with the officer’s command to get his license was shot in the back as he did so.

South Carolina State Trooper Pleads Guilty To Shooting Unarmed Black Man

The officer fired his gun four times as Levar Jones reached into his car for his ID.

A white South Carolina trooper pleaded guilty on Monday to shooting an unarmed black man during a traffic stop recorded on the officer’s dash cam.

Sean Groubert, 32, could be sentenced to 20 years in prison for assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature. He fired multiple shots at Levar Jones and struck him once in the hip at a gas station in 2014.

Jones survived the shooting and limped into court to hear Groubert enter the guilty plea.

Groubert pulled over Jones for an alleged seat belt violation and fired four shots when Jones, who was standing outside his vehicle, reached inside to fetch his ID.

The officer was fired after South Carolina Department of Public Safety Director Leroy Smith reviewed the video.

Black NC Man Shot in the Back By Police

Here we go again. Yet another questionable shooting of a fleeing suspect, this time in Raleigh, NC.

N.C. community on edge after officer fatally shoots man during chase

The neighborhood where an officer fatally shot a black man during a foot chase is on edge Tuesday, awaiting answers in one of the latest police shootings in a predominantly African-American community.

Eyewitnesses have offered descriptions of what happened Monday, including a woman who said a black man was shot in the back by a white police officer, but authorities have so far been tightlipped.

Raleigh police Chief Cassandra Deck-Brown said an officer was pursuing a man who was wanted on a felony drug charge when the officer opened fire. The chief said a gun was found near the suspect’s body, but she did not say whether it was his.

The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation is confirming the identity of the black man who was fatally shot.

The agency says 24-year-old Akiel Denkins, of Raleigh, was killed and that agents have talked to his mother, Rolonda Byrd. She had earlier complained that authorities had not told her that her son had been killed and that they wouldn’t let her see his body.

The news release from the State Bureau of Investigation said its report would be delivered to the Wake County District Attorney’s office upon its completion. It did not release any other details.

Raleigh police said Monday that Senior Officer D.C. Twiddy opened fire on the suspect when he was serving an arrest warrant. Police say a gun was found near Denkins, but it’s not clear if he was armed during the chase.

After the shooting, neighborhood residents began chanting “no justice, no peace” — a slogan used by the Black Lives Matter movement. Later in the evening, about a dozen people gathered around an anti-police sign with an expletive that was hoisted on a utility pole.

The head of the North Carolina National Association for the Advancement of Colored People called for a fair and transparent investigation.

“If one is running away, that is not a license to kill,” the Rev. William Barber II said.

Byrd says she is the mother of the man who is believed to have been killed. She said she has talked to the medical examiner and police chief, but they have not told her definitively that her 24-year-old son Akiel Denkins is dead.

She said she went to the medical examiner’s office, but wasn’t allowed to look at the body.

“They stopped me at the door. Somehow they knew I was on my way,” Byrd said.

She told CBS affiliate WNCN that her son was wanted on a warrant and while running from police, was shot in the back. Byrd said her son had two children.

“He was unarmed and he was running away because they couldn’t catch him and he jumped the fence and they shot at him seven times,” Byrd said.

Raleigh Police Chief Cassandra Deck-Brown said a gun was found near Denkins and the shooting remains under investigation.

A day earlier, she questioned the police officer’s use of force.

“Why should we show our calm when they’re not showing theirs? Why wasn’t there a Taser pulled out to Taser him while he was jumping over that fence? What happened to beanbags guns? They used to use those to stop a criminal. They don’t do that anymore. Now it’s just bullets — all bullets. Why?” she said.

Denkins had previous drug convictions and was released on $10,000 secured bond in October after being charged with two counts of selling or delivering cocaine and one count of felony possession of cocaine with intent to sell or deliver, according to court documents. He failed to show up for a court date and an order for his arrest was filed Friday.

The officer involved in the shooting was identified as senior officer D.C. Twiddy, 29, according to police spokesman Jim Sughrue. He said Twiddy has been placed on administrative leave, in accordance with department policy, while the State Bureau of Investigation looks into the matter. Twiddy’s race was not released.

Man Shoots at Sheriff Candidate and Yells Racial Slurs in Texas

More empowerment by Trump and the rest of the Clown Bus to bigots…

Jefferson County Sheriff candidate Zena Stephens

‘F*ck the n****rs!’: Texas man arrested for shooting at campaign HQ of black woman running for sheriff

Beaumont, Texas police have arrested a white male suspected of shooting out the glass doors at the campaign headquarters of Jefferson County Sheriff candidate Zena Stephens while yelling “F*ck the n****rs,” 12News is reporting.

According to Stephens, a former chief deputy who announced her run for sheriff  last year, she was standing outside her headquarters with a group of people when a white male in a white Jeep pulled up and shouted at them before opening fire.

According to Stephens, who is black and currently chief of police at Prairie View A&M University, she had not received any previous threats against her campaign.

“Anytime something like that happens with innocent people around you’re concerned for them,” Stephens said. “I don’t know if it was a random act or whether it was targeted, but I just think it is, you know, ignorance.”

Police state that no one was hurt and no bullet found, leading them to believe that the weapon used may have been a pellet gun.

Late Monday night the man — who has yet to be identified — was taken into custody at a home where the white Jeep with the same license plate as the shooter was parked out front.

According to authorities the man was arrested on an unrelated charge, but confirmed that two firearms were found inside of the Jeep. Police state that they believe the man might be the shooter who took out a window at a local store earlier in the evening.

Three other men and a woman were also taken in by police for questioning.
