Portland, Oregon – Protestors from the far left and far right, the most notorious being ANTIFA, kept Portland Police busy this weekend dealing with them in massive planned protests.
Portland Police Chief Danielle Outlaw stated at least 13 people were arrested and charged with a variety of crimes including: disorderly conduct, interfering with police, resisting arrest, possession of a weapon in a park and unlawful use of a weapon.
Earlier in the day, police tweeted images of weapons it had seized from multiple groups, including bear spray, shields and metal and wooden poles.”At this time, we know of six force-events involving officers,” Outlaw said.
Six people suffered minor injuries and one of them was taken to a local hospital. Another individual was treated for a medical condition unrelated to the demonstrations, police spokeswoman Lt. Tina Jones said.
Santa Rosa, City in California — The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office released 911 calls and body camera of one of their officer involved shooting on August 1, 2019. A Community Briefing of this Critical Incident also describe some of the information available in this case.
A man was shot by a Sonoma County Sheriff’s Deputy after he attempted to stab a mall security officer and brandished a knife on the deputy. The call came in from the security department at the Santa Rosa Plaza at about 5:38 PM. Security officers told the Santa Rosa Police Department that a man, 42-year-old suspect, Brad Baymon of Minnesota, stole items from a store and when a security officer attempted to stop him, Baymon pulled a knife and attempted to stab his face. Baymon fled the mall north on Morgan Street.
A nearby Sheriff’s deputy received the “be on the lookout” announcement and contacted a Baymon who matched the description of the suspect on 9th St at Morgan St near the mall. The deputy stopped his patrol car and Baymon walked by the deputy, refusing commands to stop. The deputy gave warnings and deployed his Taser which had no effect on Baymon. As the deputy tried to get in front of Baymon to stop him from walking away,Baymon retreated backwards and ran to the deputy’s patrol car and entered the driver’s seat.
An altercation ensued as the Baymon pulled the door shut while brandishing a knife towards the deputy as the deputy tried to open the door. The deputy shot his service weapon towards Baymon which struck him at least three times. Baymon was treated for his injuries at the scene. He was transported to a local hospital by ambulance and remains there with significant but what is reported to be non-life threatening injuries.
FRONTON, Texas – United States Border Patrol Agents patrolling the Rio Grande were shot at from the Mexican riverbank today.
Early this morning, agents assigned to the Rio Grande City Station Marine Unit patrolling near Fronton, Texas, reported they were fired upon from the Mexican riverbank. Agents saw four subjects with automatic weapons who shot over 50 rounds at them. The boat was hit several times but no one on board was injured.
A man who was “full of anger” rampaged through two SoCal cities, murdering 4 and injuring 2 more with a knife. Authorities say the victims were targeted at random. The suspect was taken into custody at one of the crime scenes.
The attacks took place in Garden Grove and Santa Ana, and authorities say both the suspect and victims were all hispanic.
The violence appeared random and the only known motives seem to be “robbery, hate, homicide,” Garden Grove police Lt. Carl Whitney said at a news conference.
“We know this guy was full of anger and he harmed a lot of people tonight,” Whitney said.
The left is currently racing to see who can out progressive each other. Part of this fun is to ‘one up’ each other on just how anti-police they are. This features Former United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro and current United States Senator from New York Kirsten Gillibrand. They are special cop haters.
Early Saturday morning an off duty LAPD officer, Juan Jose Diaz, was shot to death at a Los Angeles taco stand while with his girlfriend.
About 1am Saturday Diaz, a two year LAPD veteran, was in the area of Avenue 26 and Humboldt St. at a taco stand. Diaz observed a man committing vandalism nearby and confronted him. The yet unidentified suspect left the scene shortly after. The LAPD has not yet released if Diaz identified himself as a police officer.
Shortly later the suspect and a group of unidentified males came back to the location and the suspect displayed a handgun. Officer Diaz and his girlfriend attempted to leave the location but the suspect opened fire. Diaz was fatally shot and a second victim was shot who is expected to survive.
The suspects fled the scene and escaped before units could arrive. Early information coming out is that the shooter identified himself as an ‘Avenues” gang member.
Thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Diaz ,his family, the department, and the City of Los Angeles.
I have a lot of thoughts on this one, but lets start with the lack of leadership in this Department and CITY HALL that has allowed this type of situation to even occur. Police Officers in NYC feel as though their Mayor and Department will not back them. When cops feel like that, the public suffers the rising crime rate that is sure to follow.
My second thought… Which won’t be as popular as the first. I would have rather lost my job than disgrace my badge. I’ll leave it at that.
The war on police continues. Now we are seeing officers being investigated and excluded from criminal proceedings for posting images like this? How about we stop playing politics and start playing law enforcement, “Chief”.
