However, carjackers aren’t necessarily a particularly bright bunch. After all, it doesn’t take a master criminal to stick a gun in someone’s face and take their car. This isn’t Gone In 60 Seconds we’re talking about here.
No, it’s a violent assault on an individual with the potential for the shedding of innocent blood.
A carjacker died after he accidentally blasted himself in the chest while trying to smash a window with the butt of his shotgun, an inquest has heard.
Officers investigating the death of Reece Ramsey-Johnson said they were satisfied there was ‘no third party involvement’ as they closed the probe into his killing.
Witnesses who saw the 22-year-old dying from gunshot wounds in the street outside a Lloyds bank in Sydenham on Sunday, September 8, said his own gun may have gone off when he used to to hit a car window.
Yes, this did happen in the UK, all those gun bans there really stopped this guy
Whenever I see Newsom’s image on TV, I know that some form of idiocy is about to be reported. I know this because, well, Governor Newsom is the walking definition of a knuckle-dragging Marxist. And, again, just this morning, Governor Goober has come through once again
California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, on Tuesday signed a bill that no longer requires any “able-bodied person 18 years of age or older” in the state to help an officer who requests assistance during an arrest.
The Sacramento Bee reported that the old law, the California Posse Comitatus Act of 1872, was common in the country’s early days, but Sen. Bob Hertzberg, a Los Angeles Democrat who sponsored the bill, called the old law a “vestige of a bygone era.” The law was employed to help catch runaway slaves, the report said.
The old law made it a misdemeanor that carried a fine of up to $1,000 for refusing to help a police officer who requested assistance during an arrest.
The report said Newsom did not issue a statement after signing the bill.
The Left REALLY has it in for law enforcement it seems. What good will come from this bill? Maybe more bad people will evade arrest, and commit more felonies? Maybe they will commit violent felonies which Gov. Newsom can blame on guns. He certainly loves doing that. Maybe Marxifornia can then pass more gun control measures even though the many gun control acts they have passed have done nothing to stop mass shootings, armed robberies, etc.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has signed off on legislation banning schools in the state from suspending students for disruptive behavior.
Senate Bill 419, signed into law by Newsom on Monday, will amend the California Education Code to prohibit public and charter schools in the state from suspending students in grades 4-8 for “disrupting school activities or otherwise willfully defying the valid authority of those school personnel engaged in the performance of their duties.”
Existing law already prohibited schools from suspending or recommending expulsion for students enrolled in kindergarten or in grades 1-3 for such actions.
The legislation is slated to take effect at the start of July 2020 and will prohibit the suspension of students in grades 6-8 , specifically, for such acts until July 1, 2025.
Without discipline, and respect for teacher authority, a school cannot teach the students that DO behave. But, social justice warriors like Newsom care not because DISPROPORTIONATE
“Because it is so subjective, suspensions based on Section 48900(k) raise serious concerns about their disproportionate impact on students of color and other vulnerable student groups- including students with disabilities and/or those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), and/or gender non-conforming,” the organization said.
The group added that research “confirms that there is even greater disproportionality for students in these groups suspended for low level, subjective offenses, like defiance/disruption, compared to higher level, more objective offenses.”
In short, this bill does not ban punishment for the good students, who are punished by having to tolerate the crap the unruly students engage in does it? No, of course not, good kids just have to put up with it. Guess their “privilege” must be held against them
A Richmond man pleaded guilty Wednesday to torturing to death a pit bull, named Tommie by rescuers.
Jyahshua A. Hill, 20, of the 1300 block of St. Peter Street, was arrested about three months after Tommie was found by the Richmond Fire Department in Abner Clay Park, less than a mile from where Hill lived.
The dog, a male brindle, had been tied to a chain-link fence, doused with a flammable liquid and set ablaze, Richmond police said. Tommie died Feb. 15, five days after he was discovered in the park. He suffered burns to 40 percent of his body, according to the Richmond Animal Care and Control, which cared for the dog.
So far this year, [the miscreant in question has] been charged with felony burglary, released on a recognizance bond, charged with criminal damage to property and assault, released on another recognizance bond, charged with battery, released on a third recognizance bond, charged with battery and obstruction of identification, released on a fourth recognizance bond, and pleaded guilty to battery in exchange for a sentence of six months court supervision. And that was all before the Fourth of July.
Let’s concentrate on the throat-slashing, though the other examples (more than the two listed in the headline) are also good examples.
A convicted felon who was accused of slashing a 17-year-old boy’s throat because the teen and his girlfriend were “taking up too much sidewalk” has been sentenced to three years in prison.
Chevazz Campbell, the victim, and a 16-year-old girl were walking on the 400 block of West Roosevelt last October when Campbell allegedly became enraged that the teens were walking side-by-side. After insisting that the couple was taking up too much space on the sidewalk, Campbell pulled out a box cutter and cut the boy’s throat, prosecutors said.
Three aggravated battery charges were condensed into one by the judge. He was sentenced to three years, and given credit for time served (230+ days) They don’t say when he will be available for parole, but in less than a year I’m guessing.
In other words leftism is at work in many of the most violent cities, and guess which party runs these cities, go on, guess. Yes it does start with a D!
What I witnessed last night was true heroism by the Philadelphia police. But the crisis was precipitated by a stunning disrespect for law enforcement — a disrespect so flagrant and so reckless that the suspect immediately opened fire on every single officer within shooting distance. Only by the grace of God did they survive.
Where does such disrespect come from? There is a new culture of disrespect for law enforcement in this City that is promoted and championed by District Attorney Larry Krasner — and I am fed up with it.
It started with chants at the DA’s victory party — chants of “F*** the police” and “No good cops in a racist system.”
We’ve now endured over a year and a half of the worst kinds of slander against law enforcement — the DA routinely calls police and prosecutors corrupt and racist, even “war criminals” that he compares to Nazis.
This vile rhetoric puts our police in danger. It disgraces the Office of the District Attorney. And it harms the good people in the City of Philadelphia and rewards the wicked.
The alleged shooter last night, Maurice Hill, is a previously convicted felon with a long rap sheet. We have plenty of criminal laws in this City — but what we don’t have is robust enforcement by the District Attorney. Instead, among other things, we have diversionary programs for gun offenses, the routine downgrading of charges for violent crime, and entire sections of the criminal code that are ignored.
The criminal laws in this City — and especially the existing gun laws and drug laws — should be aggressively enforced in order to protect the public and the police. My Office is doing all that we can. We have prosecuted 70% more violent crime cases this year than we did last year, in response to the District Attorney’s lawlessness. But it is now time for the District Attorney and his enablers to stop making excuses for criminals. It is time for accountability. It is time to support law enforcement and to put the good people of this City first.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office, in conjunction with the Philadelphia police and our federal partners, is investigating the horrible events of last night and we are considering all options at our disposal. We will do everything that we can to support our brothers and sisters in the Philadelphia Police Department and ensure justice is done.
To the officers involved last night — those who were wounded and those who rushed to defend them — and to their families, I say thank you. The whole City thanks you. We owe you more than we can ever repay.
Note please that NPE of this is even being mentioned by the ledia, or the Cult of Gun Control. All they can do is chant “sensible gun laws” while drooling on themselves
Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced financier who was indicted on sex trafficking charges, died Friday night by suicide in his Manhattan jail cell, according to multiple reports.
Law enforcement officials told ABC News that Epstein, 66, died by suicide in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center overnight, though the exact timing and circumstances surrounding his death were not immediately clear.
A man who served decades in prison for stabbing his wife 14 times in front of her daughter was convicted Wednesday in a nearly identical crime — stabbing a woman at least 11 times while her twin children watched.
Albert Flick, 77, who was previously deemed too old to be a threat by a judge, was convicted in the 2018 death of Kimberly Dobbie. Jurors deliberated less than an hour before reaching its guilty verdict.
Both the attack, which was in front of a laundromat in broad daylight, and Flick’s purchase two days earlier of two knives, were caught on surveillance video.
Sick old bastard should have rotted in jail, but a judge thought he was “too old”
To make matters worse is that it wasn’t like Flick didn’t give off warning signs. There was reason to recognize that he was a violent man with violent tendencies besides his first murder.
In 2010, he was sentenced again for assaulting another woman. The judge at the time ignored the recommendation of the prosecutor for a longer sentence, saying Flick would not be a threat because of his age and it didn’t make sense to keep him incarcerated. He was released and moved to Lewiston in 2014.
So, he served four years? FOUR! For murder? God help us
