Eric-R.-Douglas-30-from-Crown-Point-IN-wedged-Indiana-trooper-with-his-car-until-he-was-shot-on-June-2-2020

LAKE COUNTY- Indiana State Police report that on June 2, 2020, at 12:27 a.m., the Munster Police Department initiated a pursuit of a silver Nissan sedan that had reportedly been involved in suspicious activity at a residence in their town.

 The driver fled Munster at a high rate of speed, driving without headlights, and had reportedly attempted to ram a Munster police car.  ISP units assisted with the pursuit as it continued eastbound on I-80 from Kennedy Ave.  The pursuit continued north on Cline Ave and exited onto Columbus Dr. where the vehicle crashed into the round-a-bout.  The Nissan continued to attempt to flee west on Columbus before stopping in the left lane. 

A trooper then pulled next to the vehicle and attempted to take the suspect into custody; however the vehicle moved forward striking the trooper as he stood outside of his vehicle, wedging him against his police car.  The trooper, while still wedged between vehicles, then shot at the driver through the windshield, striking the suspect.  The vehicle was occupied by three other passengers, none of whom were injured or struck by any gunfire.  The suspect and trooper were both transported from the scene for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. 

The suspect has been identified as Eric R. Douglas, 30, from Crown Point, IN.  He is currently being held at the Lake County Jail on a probable cause hold for this incident as well as for active warrants out of Marion and Porter County.  This is an on-going investigation..  The identification of the trooper involved will be released Thursday afternoon.

‘Mayhem’: 4 police officers shot during long night of violence and destruction in St. Louis

FROM ST. LOUIS POST DISPATCH
ST. LOUIS — Four police officers were shot in downtown St. Louis early Tuesday, as a day of peaceful protests turned into a violent and destructive night in the city. 

Early in the day, hundreds of people gathered across the St. Louis region again Monday to protest the Memorial Day death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Floyd was killed when a police officer knelt on his neck for several minutes while Floyd was detained. 

But tensions rose after the sun fell in downtown St. Louis.

Just after midnight, four officers, all men, were shot near 16th and Olive streets. All four are conscious, and their injuries are considered non-life-threatening.

“I believe some coward randomly shot at the police line,” said St. Louis Police Chief John Hayden.  MORE

 

We have had 4 officers struck by gunfire tonight. All have been transported to an area hospital. All are conscious and breathing. Their injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.

Officers are still taking gunfire downtown & we will share more info as it available.

Business owner killed when police returned fire

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — David McAtee, who turned his talent for food into a popular West End eatery, was shot and killed by law enforcement officers early Monday morning, an incident that’s now under state, local and federal investigation.

McAtee, the owner of YaYa’s BBQ in western Louisville, was known as a “community pillar,” said his mother, Odessa Riley.

“He left a great legend behind. He was a good person. Everybody around him would say that,” she said. “My son didn’t hurt nobody. He didn’t do nothing to nobody.”

Riley was among the hundreds who had swarmed the corner of 26th and Broadway Monday where Louisville police and National Guard personnel were breaking up a “large crowd” that had gathered in the parking lot outside a Dino’s Food Mart, according to law enforcement officials.

Protestors quickly became a mob at Stafford Marketplace and began throwing missiles at vehicles in traffic on Garrisonville Road

 
Stafford VA. The Stafford County Sheriff’s office reports that the Sheriff declared an unlawful assembly in the area of Garrisonville Road and Stafford Marketplace on Sunday, May 31, 2020, after a protest became unruly and protestors began throwing objects at vehicles.
The demonstration began on May 31, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. with a peaceful gathering of approximately 150 people in front of the Stafford Marketplace Target. About an hour later, the crowds began to disperse with the exception of about 50 to 75 people. The remaining protestors began marching around Stafford Marketplace and up and down Garrisonville Road for several hours. At approximately 6:45 p.m., the protestors formed a line across Garrisonville Road, blocking all lanes of traffic. They threw items—including water bottles, rocks, and salsa jars—at passing vehicles. As the protest became unruly, an unlawful assembly was declared and the crowds were given the opportunity to disperse peacefully.
During this time, part of Garrisonville Road was shut down as deputies attempted to regain control of the crowds. Items were thrown at deputies on the scene and pepper spray was used to make several arrests.
In total, 10 arrests were made and charges include unlawful assembly, obstructing justice, assault and battery on a law enforcement officer, possession of a firearm during a protest, and pedestrian in the roadway.“We fully support the right of our community to peacefully protest without police interference and will continue to do so,” said Sheriff David P. Decatur. “In the days ahead, we ask that protestors remain peaceful and refrain from violence and blocking traffic. The safety of the community is our priority.”

EACH TIME a store is looted, jobs disappear forever. Who pays the bills for these employees? Not Mayor Stoney!

 

RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) – Richmond Police Chief Will Smith got emotional during a press conference after the second night of protests in the city.

Chief Smith says last night protesters set fire to a few buildings, including a multi-family residence that was occupied by a child in the 300 block of West Broad Street.

As fire crews were arriving, Smith says protesters blocked the engine from reaching the fire.

“When you take a legitimate issue and hijack it for unknown reasons, that is unacceptable to me, it’s unacceptable to the Richmond Police Department, unacceptable to the city of Richmond,” said Smith.

STATE OF EMERGENCY IN VIRGINIA BEACH AND RICHMOND DUE TO MOBS LOOTING STORES

DECLARATION OF A STATE OF EMERGENCY
DUE TO CIVIL UNREST AND INSTITUTION OF A CURFEW
IN THE CITY OF RICHMOND AND THE CITY OF VIRGINIA BEACH
Importance of the Issue
On this day, May 31, 2020, I declare that a state of emergency exists in the
Commonwealth of Virginia due to past and potential future civil unrest that poses a danger to public safety. The Commonwealth of Virginia has experienced significant events in the past 48
hours that have required intervention to restore order, ensure the safety of protestors and the public, protect property, and provide additional resources to support our local and state partners. In the past 24 hours alone, there have been numerous instances of unlawful activity
resulting in injuries to peaceful protestors and first responders, significant property damage, and continued escalation of violent events. Specific incidents include unlawful assemblies declared
in the City of Richmond, Prince William County, and Roanoke, extensive property damage in the City of Richmond and the City of Virginia Beach including the burning of two buildings,
vehicle fires, debris and dumpster fires, vandalism, looting, and the damage to law enforcement vehicles.
The Commonwealth has a compelling interest to maintain peace and order in the face of escalating tension. The effects of this civil unrest constitute an emergency wherein human lives and public and private property are imperiled, as described in § 44-146.16 of the Code of Virginia (Code). Action is necessary to preserve life and property and to alleviate the conditions
caused by this situation.
Therefore, by virtue of the authority vested in me by Article V of the Constitution of Virginia, by §§ 44-146.17 and 44-75.1 of the Code, and as Governor and Director of Emergency Management and Commander-in-Chief of the Commonwealth’s armed forces, I proclaim that a
state of emergency exists in the Commonwealth of Virginia . Accordingly, I direct state and local governments to render appropriate assistance to prepare for and respond to this situation, to
alleviate any conditions resulting from the situation, and to implement recovery and mitigation operations and activities so as to return impacted areas to pre-event conditions as much as possible. Emergency services shall be conducted in accordance with § 44-146.13 et seq. of the Code.
In order to marshal all public resources and appropriate preparedness, response, and recovery measures, I order the following actions:
A. Implementation by state agencies of the Commonwealth of Virginia Emergency Operations Plan, as amended, along with other appropriate state plans.
B. Activation of the Virginia Emergency Operations Center and the Virginia Emergency Support Team, as directed by the State Coordinator of Emergency Management, to coordinate the provision of assistance to state, local, and tribal governments and to facilitate emergency services assignments to other agencies.
C. Authorization for the heads of executive branch agencies, on behalf of their regulatory boards as appropriate, and with the concurrence of their Cabinet Secretary, to waive any state requirement or regulation, and enter into contracts without regard to normal procedures or formalities, and without regard to application or permit fees or royalties.
All waivers issued by agencies shall be posted on their websites.
D. Activation of the Virginia National Guard to State Active Duty.
E. Authorization of a maximum of $350,000 in state sum sufficient funds for state and local government mission assignments and state response and recovery operations authorized and coordinated through the Virginia Department of Emergency Management allowable by The Stafford Act, 42 U.S.C. § 5121 et seq. Included in this authorization is $250,000
for the Department of Military Affairs.
Further, I declare that the City of Richmond and the City of Virginia Beach shall be under a curfew between the hours of 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. With respect to the City of Richmond, the curfew shall begin on May 31, 2020, and end June 3, 2020. Unless extended by further executive order, that curfew shall end at 6 a.m., June 3, 2020.
With respect to the City of Virginia Beach, the curfew shall begin on June 1, 2020, at 8:00 p.m. and end on June 4, 2020, at 6:00 a.m. unless extended by further executive order. While the curfew is in place no person shall be present on any street, road, alley, avenue, park, or other public
place in the City of Richmond and the City of Virginia Beach with the following exceptions:
• Persons traveling to and from home, work, or places of worship;
• Hospital personnel;
• Members of the press;
• State and City of Richmond employees and volunteers;
• Military personnel including but not limited to national guard troops;
• Private emergency medical transport workers;
• Travel to and from public meetings City of Virginia Beach City Council and School Board;
• Persons seeking emergency services; and
• Other emergency workers
Nothing in this Order shall be construed to prohibit or restrict travel to a hospital in the event of a medical emergency, nor shall such travel be considered in violation of this Order.
Violation of this Order shall be a Class 1 misdemeanor pursuant to § 44-146.17 of the Code of Virginia.
Effective Date of this Executive Order
This Order shall be effective immediately and with the exception to the provisions instituting a curfew, shall remain in full force and effect until June 29, 2020, unless amended or rescinded by further executive order.
Given under my hand and under the Seal of the Commonwealth of Virginia this 1st day of June, 2020.
Ralph S. Northam, Governor
Attest:
Kelly Thomasson, Secretary of the Commonwealth

Town-Talk-Diner-and-Gastropub-destroyed-by-rioters-in-Minneapolis-as-Mayor-held-police-back-from-protecting-city.

Unthinkable and surreal, Town Talk Diner and Gastropub again fell victim to the unfortunate rioting that occurred in Longfellow last night. Brought down by a mighty blaze, the old bright sign illuminated for the final time, in the wee hours, from the flames that surrounded her.

Thank you to everyone that made us a part of the Longfellow neighborhood. A special thank you to those who have become our Longfellow family. Your generosity, friendship and camaraderie made for our best days and nights at TTD. We will miss you dearly; please know what you mean to us.

Pray for the family of George Floyd. Pray for the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Pray for Longfellow, and all her beautiful residents and tenants. Pray that we all heal, and that we heal soon.

Looted one night, torched the next as the feckless Mayor of Minneapolis had the police stand down.

WHY didn’t the other three officers act to stop the murder of George Floyd?

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Attorney General William P. Barr’s Statement on Riots and Domestic Terrorism

Attorney General William P. Barr has issued the following statement:

“With the rioting that is occurring in many of our cities around the country, the voices of peaceful and legitimate protests have been hijacked by violent radical elements.  Groups of outside radicals and agitators are exploiting the situation to pursue their own separate, violent, and extremist agenda.

It is time to stop watching the violence and to confront and stop it.  The continued violence and destruction of property endangers the lives and livelihoods of others, and interferes with the rights of peaceful protestors, as well as all other citizens. 

It also undercuts the urgent work that needs to be done – through constructive engagement between affected communities and law enforcement leaders – to address legitimate grievances.  Preventing reconciliation and driving us apart is the goal of these radical groups, and we cannot let them succeed. 

It is the responsibility of state and local leaders to ensure that adequate law enforcement resources, including the National Guard where necessary, are deployed on the streets to reestablish law and order.  We saw this finally happen in Minneapolis last night, and it worked. 

Federal law enforcement actions will be directed at apprehending and charging the violent radical agitators who have hijacked peaceful protest and are engaged in violations of federal law.

To identify criminal organizers and instigators, and to coordinate federal resources with our state and local partners, federal law enforcement is using our existing network of 56 regional FBI Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTTF). 

The violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly.”

Run up in here and see what happens’: Black gun owners guard businesses to protect against looting in Minneapolis

FROM WASHINGTON EXAMINER: Videos taken in Minnesota during massive rioting in the Twin Cities this week show business owners and other heavily armed citizens standing outside storefronts to protect against looters.

In a video posted Thursday, several black gun owners are seen standing outside local businesses in St. Paul carrying firearms.

“Run up in here and see what happens,” one of the men says.

 

Thousands of people have taken to the streets of St. Paul and nearby Minneapolis to protest the killing of George Floyd, 46, an unarmed black man who died in police custody Monday night.

Multiple videos from the scene show the officers kneeling on Floyd, one of whom crushed his neck.

“I can’t breathe,” Floyd, who never resisted arrest, told the officers. All four officers involved in Floyd’s death have been fired, but no arrests have been made as of Friday morning.

Amid the demonstrations this week, looting and property destruction have taken place. Demonstrators took over a police precinct in Minneapolis on Thursday and burned it to the ground. MORE

Dozens of suspected looters arrested after night of mayhem in NYC

Looter-arrested-in-New-York.-photo-New-York-Post

FROM NEW YORK POST:
Dozens of suspected looters were arrested in Soho Sunday night as protests over the death of George Floyd descended into chaos.

A group of 12 people were busted by cops outside Nike Soho on Broadway as a number of high-end boutiques — and even a Bloomingdale’s department store — were looted overnight Sunday.

A man was also shot in Soho near Spring and Crosby streets early Monday about at 12:30 a.m. It was not immediately clear if the shooting was related to the surrounding looting.

Shortly after the shooting at the same intersection, a Post reporter witnessed the arrest of a man driving a silver Mercedes Benz sedan.

With their guns drawn, cops commanded the man to “Put the car in park. Get the f–k out right now!”

A witness to some of the looting mayhem on Greene Street said the suspects appeared to have a system, where one group would breach the stores as others lie in wait outside in getaway rides. MORE

Pair of Brooklyn lawyers including Ivy League corporate attorney charged in Molotov cocktail attack on NYPD cruiser

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS: Two Brooklyn lawyers, including an Ivy League graduate corporate attorney, are facing federal charges over accusations they tossed a Molotov cocktail into an NYPD vehicle early Saturday morning during a protest over the police killing of George Floyd.

Colinford Mattis, 32, a corporate lawyer and member of Community Board 5 in East New York, was charged along with fellow attorney Urooj Rahman with the attempted attack on an empty police cruiser parked outside the 88th Precinct station house in Fort Greene.

Brooklyn-lawyer Urooj Rahman-with-Molotov-cocktail-she-tossed-at-NYPD cruiser.

“This is shocking news to me,” Andre Mitchell, president of Community Board 5 told the Daily News. “The allegation does surprise me because that doesn’t sound like him.”

The super of Rahman’s building called her “an angel” who recently lost her legal job.

Authorities say Rahman, 31, tossed a bottle filled with gasoline through a broken window into the cruiser just before 1 am Saturday but the Molotov cocktail failed to ignite.

Rahman jumped into a van driven by Mattis and they sped off, court papers allege. Brooklyn lawyer accused of tossing Molotov cocktail at NYPD cruiser used Bud Light bottle for an incendiary device: photo »

The attempted torching was captured by video surveillance cameras outside the precinct stationhouse on DeKalb Ave., according to court papers.

Cops gave chase and stopped the van nearby on Willoughby St. They found the makings of another Molotov cocktail in the back seat along with a gasoline container, authorities say.

“No rational human being can ever believe that hurling firebombs at police officers and vehicles is justified,” said Brooklyn U.S Attorney Richard Donoghue.

Neither Rahman nor Mattis have been arrested before, authorities say. They face federal charges and will be arraigned Monday.

Mayor de Blasio Sunday blamed outside “anarchist” for the violence that erupted in New York over the weekend. But Mattis is a corporate lawyer with Times Square law firm Pryor Cashman. MORE
