LAPD handcuff man after shooting him in the head

The disregard for human life is a running theme for police officers in this country.

According to Lt. John Jenal, the officers stopped to investigate an incident after the shooting victim was flagging for help using an arm wrapped in a towel. When they arrived on the scene, they believed the man had a weapon, which they asked him to drop. Shortly afterwards, they fired at him four times, apparently striking him once in the head.

To make matters worse, the officers immediately rolled him over, and handcuffed him, all of which was caught on camera by an onlooker who appeared to be stationed across the street.

BREAKING: Multiple People Dead After Mass Shooting at Black Church in Charleston, SC


Is this 1963 or 2015? My thoughts and condolences go out to the victims and all those affected by this tragedy. More to come as the story develops.

UPDATE: Multiple sources are reporting there were nine fatalities.


(CNN)Several people were killed in a shooting at an historic African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina, a source close to the investigation told CNN.

The shooter is still at large.

The shooting took place Wednesday evening at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, the oldest AME church in the South.

Police haven’t said how many people have been shot. But the source who spoke to CNN said several bodies were in the church that were yet to be identified.

“It’s really bad. It’s a very bad scene,” local pastor Thomas Dixon said.

“Apparently the person just entered the church and opened fire. That part has not been fully articulated on what happened yet … they are still looking for the suspect.”

Police said the suspect in the shooting is a clean-shaven white man in his 20s, with a slender build. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt, blue jeans and boots.


6 Shot, 2 Dead After Drive-By Shooting Outside of Funeral Service in Brooklyn

bk+shooting+4+27+1If there was ever a time that the People in communities across the U.S. needed to come together, it’s now. While images and videos of the Baltimore protesters’ exemplary model of unity continue to pour in by the hour, it is unfortunate that that spirit of solidarity has not spread throughout the rest of the country and penetrated the hearts of others. I truly wonder what the motive could have possibly been to lead these men to opening fire on a group of 300 people that were just leaving a funeral service. Many of whom were with their loved ones and simply wanted to pay respects to someone who had passed. Little did some of them know, they would have to start making plans to attend two more. It’s even more saddening to hear that one of the men that died in this senseless act of violence was killed in front of his son. For what? When will this vicious cycle end? Let this be a reminder that although the solidarity shown in places like Ferguson and Baltimore is a step in the right direction, it is something that must not be fleeting. We have to be as unrelenting in our struggle for unity amongst the People as the opposing forces are in their efforts to keep us divided.

I offer my condolences to all those affected by this tragedy.

Six people were shot — two fatally — Monday night during a drive-by shooting outside a Brooklyn church where funeral services were being held, police sources and witnesses said.

More than 300 people were leaving the service at Emmanuel Church of God on Flatbush Ave. near Foster Ave. at about 8:30 p.m. when a gunman fired up to 15 shots into the crowd from a silver SUV.

“It sounded like a war … boom, boom, boom,” said witness Carlo Stamand, 60, who owns the nearby Cafe Creole restaurant. “I ran. I went inside my business. After that, the police came.

Witness Angela Diggs, 50, was worshiping at another church nearby when the congregants’ prayers were drowned out by gunfire.


“We didn’t come out,” she said. “We just continued praying for whatever was happening out there. Praying that nobody died.”

Diggs’ prayers weren’t answered.

[video] Anonymous Set to Take Aim on Albuquerque Police Department Over Shooting of Homeless Man Camping

This was a tragic story of a homeless who was gunned down when he was approached by the Albuquerque Police Dept for illegal camping. Video of the shooting was released this week and Anonymous has announced their pending cyber attack on the APD websites.


The loosely organized group known as Anonymous released a cryptic video Wednesday strongly denouncing the March 16 police shooting of a homeless man in the Sandia foothills. The group urged the people of Albuquerque to “occupy” APD headquarters on Sunday.

It also warned of a cyberattack on the department’s websites.

The video calls APD officers “militarized thugs” and warns them of possible retribution for the police shooting of James M. Boyd.

Rob Perry, Albuquerque’s chief administrative officer, said the city takes the threat seriously.

Four Dozen Shot in NYC over Holiday Weekend

It is a shame that a few knuckleheads mar the Labor Day festivities every year by bringing out guns, to what is supposed to be a celebration of cultures from the Carribean. I was there and the weather was perfect, food delicious and tons of beautiful women in scantily clad outfits. Fellas leave the guns at home and come and have a good time and stop destroying the biggest parade of the year.

Two men were shot at Eastern Parkway near Rochester Ave. on the sidelines of the massive celebration about 2:30 p.m., police said.

One man was shot in the abdomen and the other in the lower back after they got into a scuffle with the shooter. Both were expected to survive, sources said.

The gunman fled into the panicked crowd.

“Everyone started running,” said witness William Long. “I saw people knocking the barricades over.”

About a dozen blocks west on Eastern Parkway, the parade’s main thoroughfare, near Rogers Ave., a man was shot in the leg about 5 p.m. and taken to Kings County Hospital, officials said.

“He pulled it out and fired off two shots,” parade-goer Pauline Mash, 29, said of the gunman. “The crowd just went wild running.”

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — An infant and at least five other people were shot Tuesday along a parade route packed with Mardi Gras revelers, police said. Two suspects were in custody and the victims were recovering.

The shootings happened near the Garden District about 1:40 p.m. after the last major parade of the celebration, Rex, had ended. Hundreds of truck floats that follow the parade were passing when gunfire broke out.

”It sounded like a string of fireworks, so I knew it was more than one shooter,” said Toni Labat, 29, a window company manager. She was with her two children, a 2-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl.

”Everybody was petrified. They hit the ground, the floats stopped, everybody on the floats ducked,” Labat said.

Labat said one man dragged himself on the ground screaming for help after being wounded and another man was gasping for air and bleeding from his mouth.

Police spokesman Bob Young said the victims were taken to local hospitals. The infant was grazed by a bullet and not seriously hurt, Young said.

Dr. Jim Parry, 41, a surgeon who was with a gathering of doctors near the shooting site, ran over to tend to one man who he said had been shot in the abdomen. ”He kept asking me, ‘Was I shot? Was I shot?”’

Paramedics arrived and took over for the Air Force reservist. Continue reading

Wright was sentenced to 20 years for two counts of aggravated assault. He will spend another 20 years on probation.

Radio Hosts Stoop to New Lows as Remy & Shooting Victim Air It Out On Air

Remy Ma & Shooting Victim Makeda

The travesty continues…on the morning of the 14th, both Remy Ma and shooting victim Makeda Barnes-Joseph called into New York radio (Hot 97) to state their case. The radio hosts, DJ Envy and Miss Jones took this opportunity to stoop to new lows by ridiculing the young lady who was “allegedly” shot by Remy. Not only were they accusing her to be ‘out for the money’ but while she was explaining her ordeal you could hear them ad-libing her vocals with sounds of gunshots and snickering laughter. Jonesy, as she is so passionately referred to, stated her bias from the gate by telling Makeda that Remy was her girl and she was riding with her rendition of the event. Even though this girl was clearly hysterical on the phone, pleading with someone to show some compassion and hear her story these buffoons up at the radio couldn’t extend her an ounce of decency.
