Gun control, Chiraq style: Man who fired gun & linked to deaths of two Chicago Police officers could be released soon

Perp Edward Brown: Just wanted to see if the pistol worked….or something

The perp said he “found” a pistol and “wanted to see if it worked.”

The perp is “hanging in there” after the two officers lost their lives.

Despicable.

From MyFoxChicago: The man being held in connection with the deaths of the two Chicago police officers who were killed by a train could soon be released from jail, as a community group says it’s helping to get Edward Brown released on bond.

It was four weeks ago Monday night that Brown was arrested for alleging firing the gunshots which led officers Conrad Gary and Eduardo Marmolejo onto the railroad tracks where they were hit by a train.

Brown is still in jail, needing $20,000 for release on bond. “He’s hanging in there,” said defense attorney Frank Koustoros. “You know, nobody wants to be in jail, but he’s hanging in there.”

It looks like Brown could be released very soon.

“We are planning to post bond this week, yes,” said Sharlyn Grace of Chicago Community Bond Fund. “We’re just waiting on a couple more things to come through.”

The Chicago Community Bond Fund uses donated dollars to help defendants post bond and remain free while fighting their cases. “When a case like this that’s high profile comes up, we know it’s even more important than usual that somebody really enjoys the presumption of innocence,” said Grace.

Brown was back in court Monday where prosecutors revealed he’s been indicted on the two weapons charges for which he was arrested.

Members of Brown’s family, including his mother, were in the courtroom, but through his attorney, they declined to talk about the case.

“He’s not alone in this world,” said Koustoros. “He has a lot of love and support from his family and friends.”
The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) wanted a felony murder charge.

“We are continually disappointed with the Kim Foxx administration when the police are the victims of crime,” said an FOP spokesperson.

The spokesperson added the FOP will be shocked and disappointed if Brown gets out on bond.

Comedian vows to wear fur until cops stop killing black people

You’ll always find grandiose egos in Hollyweird.

From People: Tiffany Haddish is making a bold statement as she protests police brutality. The actress, 39, shared via Instagram that a fan gifted her her own fur vest after Haddish expressed interest in the garment. And now that she has one, Haddish doesn’t plan on taking it off until police brutality, particularly against black men and women, is addressed.

“I don’t know if you know this about me, but I’m about to start protesting,” she says in the video. “I’m going to wear fur every day until they stop killing black people. When the police stop killing black people, I’ll stop wearing fur. It’s my new protest. So sorry PETA, don’t be mad at me, be mad at the police.”

She continues, “See how that go? Because people are important. And so are the animals – to keep me warm.”

Though it’s not clear whether Haddish is just joking, as she has a smile on her face the whole time, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) took to the comments section in her post to urge her to find another way to protest.

“We love you, Tiffany, and as an animal rights organization, we advocate for and believe in kindness towards all, including animals,” the organization commented. “We hope that you choose to protest in a different way that doesn’t harm any humans or any animals, but is kind to all.”

The video came just the day before Haddish bombed her New Year’s Eve stand-up set in Miami. Although Haddish already tweeted after the show that she wishes it had gone “better,” the star told TMZ on Wednesday that she didn’t do her best because of being overworked.

“See, your brain is an interesting thing when you don’t get the proper amount of rest,” she told the outlet “You gotta understand, I worked almost every single day last year. I’ve only been home, I was doing the math yesterday, a grand total of 40 days. I slept in my bed a grand total of 28 days the whole year. And I worked all the way up literally until New Year’s.”

Another American citizen permanently separated from his family.

From ABC 7 News: The suspect accused of killing a Newman police officer has been identified and is in the country illegally, according to authorities.

Police believe the suspect, who they have not named, shot and killed the police officer around 1 a.m. on Monday. The suspect’s truck was found outside the city of Newman in a mobile home park, but the suspect is still missing.

The victim is Officer Ronil Singh, a K-9 officer with the Newman Police Department.

Officer Singh is survived by his wife and his six-month-old son. According to friends and family, Officer Singh’s parents and brother currently live in Fiji and are making their way to California.

“Our Newman Police family is devastated by the loss of Ronil,” said Newman Police Chief Randy Richardson. “If anyone has any information regarding the identity of the suspect, please contact law enforcement immediately so we can get this cop-killer off the streets.”

Officers released pictures of the suspect and the suspect’s vehicle Monday morning.

They were able to track the truck down to the 26000 block of River Road in Newman. However, the suspect is still on the run.

ICE deports Kazakhstani man convicted of concealing evidence for Boston Marathon bombers

Bye, bye you terrorist supporter!

Our country and the safety of our citizens matter. Good riddance!

From ICE press release dated 11/01/18:

DALLAS — Officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) removed a Kazakhstani man on Oct. 23 who was previously convicted for concealing criminal evidence for one of the Boston Marathon bombers.

Dias Muratovich Kadyrbayev, 24, a citizen of Kazakhstan, was convicted June 2, 2015, of conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstruction of justice for removing and disposing of incriminatory items from Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s dorm room. Tsarnaev was later convicted and sentenced to death for his role in the Boston Marathon bombing that killed three innocent bystanders, and subsequently two police officers.

Kadyrbayev’s crimes are considered aggravated felonies under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Kadyrbayev was sentenced to six years in federal prison at the Federal Correctional Institute in Big Spring, Texas (FCI Big Spring). Under federal law, aliens convicted of an aggravated felony are subject to removal and barred from returning to the United States.

Kadyrbayev departed the U.S. by commercial air on Oct. 23 and was released from ICE custody on Oct. 24 at the Almaty International Airport, in Almaty, Kazakhstan, without incident.

On Oct. 13, 2016, ERO Dallas lodged an immigration detainer with the Bureau of Prisons on Kadyrbayev and on Feb. 15, 2018, served him with a final administrative order of removal.

On Aug. 29, 2018, FCI Big Spring transferred custody of Kadyrbayev to ERO Dallas at the Prairieland Detention Center in Alvarado, Texas. Kadyrbayev remained in ICE custody until he was removed under ICE escort on Oct. 23.

Detroit food truck owner refuses to serve law enforcement officers

Am I to assume that the food truck owner will not call the police if she is robbed or raped in her truck? Wouldn’t want her to feel “unsafe.”

The owner of the food truck identifies as a brown queer person. She pulled out two cards for this fight!

From Fox News: A food truck owner in Detroit, Michigan says she won’t serve police officers or other law enforcement officials because she, along with the “majority” of her customers, “do not feel safe around law enforcement agents.”

The owner of Rocky’s Road Brew, Rocky Coronado, wrote on Facebook Friday that she is “well within [her] rights to refuse service to law enforcement agents,” such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security, and local police officers.

The truck owner detailed in a separate post that she turned away two officers on Friday who were “in a unmarked, black suburban with tinted windows both with bulletproof vests and badges.”

The officers, according to Coronado, circled back around with a third person after being told the food truck was closed, and asked why they weren’t served.

“Not feeling confrontational, I meekly told her that I don’t serve law enforcement,” the owner wrote.

The officer allegedly said she was with the Michigan Humane Society, and “quickly became belligerent.”

According to Coronado, one officer took photos of her and other customers, and the officers’ “false account of what happened” was posted online. “The posts went viral and I decided to post why I do not serve law enforcement agents,” the owner wrote.

The Michigan Humane Society did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment.

The Facebook post said that “because of the madness” and backlash the posts have received, Rocky’s Road Brew temporarily will be closed.

National Association of Police Organizations calls for boycott of Nike over Kaepernick campaign

Kaepernick wearing his police bashing socks

Race profiteer Colin Kaepernick has an endorsement deal with Nike. It has caused A LOT of debate. The former NFL player is featured in Nike’s “Just Do It” campaign in an ad with the statement, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”

According to NBC:

Kaepernick already had a deal with Nike that was set to expire, but it was renegotiated into a multiyear deal to make him one of the faces of Nike’s 30th anniversary “Just Do It” campaign, according to a person familiar with the contract. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because Nike hasn’t officially announced the contract.

The person said Nike will feature Kaepernick on several platforms, including billboards, television commercials and online ads. Nike also will create an apparel line for Kaepernick and contribute to his Know Your Rights charity, the person said. The deal puts Kaepernick in the top bracket of NFL players with Nike.”

Many people are NOT pleased with the campaign especially since Kaepernick is very critical of police and was once caught wearing socks depicting police as pigs.

As a result, the National Association of Police Organizations called for a boycott of Nike. From their statement:

“NAPO is calling on all our member officers, their families and friends to join in boycotting all Nike products in response to the company’s selection of Colin Kaepernick for its “Just Do It” ad campaign. On September 4, NAPO sent a letter to the Chairman, President and CEO of Nike, Inc., condemning this move in the strongest possible terms. Mr. Kaepernick is known, not as a successful athlete, but as a shallow dilettante seeking to gain notoriety by disrespecting the flag for which so many Americans have fought and died. 

The inclusion of Mr. Kaepernick in Nike’s “Just Do It” ad campaign also perpetuates the falsehood that police are racist and aiming to use force against African Americans and persons of color.  In reality, officers across the nation risk their lives not only protecting the athletes featured in Nike’s various campaigns, but also serve aspiring athletes across the country who use the Nike brand, through the thousands of Police Athletic Leagues, Boys and Girls Clubs and Big Brother/Big Sister programs where our officers donate their time and energy. They deserve to have the respect and full support of corporate citizens like Nike. 

Adding to the insult is the image of Mr. Kaepernick from the campaign featuring the quote “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”  The fact that Mr. Kaepernick is no longer a starting NFL player does not equate to him being someone who has “sacrificed everything”. To truly understand what it means to “believe in something” and “sacrifice everything”, you should look to Arlington National Cemetery, or to the National Law Enforcement Officers’ Memorial in Washington, D.C., or to the trauma unit of a military hospital. The brave men and women of every race and color buried there, memorialized there, healing there, believed in this nation and our flag and exemplify the true meaning of “sacrifice”.  

In featuring Mr. Kaepernick in the “Just Do It” campaign, Nike grossly insults the men and women who really do make sacrifices for the sake of our nation.  

Click here to view NAPO’s letter to Nike, Inc.”

I can’t remember the last time I purchased a Nike product. I certainly won’t be buying any in the future.

Kaepernick participates in "Unthanksgiving Day" on Alcatraz

Colin Kaepernick
Guess he needs something to do. It’s not like he’s going to be a QB on any team soon, especially with stunts like this.
From Fox News: Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, took part Thursday in the annual Unthanksgiving Day on Alcatraz Island.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported that Kaepernick made a surprise appearance at the event, which commemorates the 19-month occupation of the prison by Native American activists from 1969-1971.
“Our fight is the same fight,” Kaepernick told the crowd, in a message he posted on Twitter. “We’re all fighting for our justice, for our freedom. And realizing that we are all in this fight together makes us all the more powerful.”
The 89 activists who occupied the prison almost five decades ago demanded that it be turned into an American Indian cultural center and school.
During the commemorative event, called the Indigenous People’s Sunrise Gathering, the crowd gathers on the island to watch the sunrise on San Francisco Bay.
“It’s about reflecting, remembering and celebrating that we are still here and our culture still survives,” Michael Horse, a Native American actor, told Newsweek.
Kaepernick, who was recently named GQ’s ‘Citizen of the Year,’ began kneeling instead of standing during the national anthem last season to protest racial inequality and police brutality. The demonstration sparked a wave of NFL protests by players during the anthem that repeatedly have been denounced by President Trump. Kaepernick parted ways with the 49ers in March and hasn’t been signed by another team.

NFL reportedly invites Kaepernick to meet with Roger Goodell

Colin Kaepernick
Kaepernick doesn’t currently work for the NFL. Goodell is a pansy and the worst all-time leader of the NFL.
From MSN: According to this report from ESPN’s Jim Trotter, NFL executive VP of football operations Troy Vincent texted free agent Colin Kaepernick and invited him to meet one-on-one with commissioner Roger Goodell.
Per the report, Vincent’s text to Kaepernick also included an update on the ongoing discussions between NFL players and owners regarding social issues.
As of now, the league has not heard back from Kaepernick about meeting with the commissioner. ESPN’s Adam Schefter said last week that Goodell, Vincent and Arthur McAfee, the NFL’s senior vice president of player engagement, will be asked to surrender their cell phone records and emails as they pertain to Kaepernick’s collusion case filed against the league. They are set to be deposed as well.
Along with the NFL personnel having to turn over their records, other specific NFL team owners will also be asked to do the same.
Kaepernick alleges that the NFL has colluded against him in preventing him from signing with a team.
Kaepernick has been a free agent since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March. He made headlines countrywide after protesting the national anthem last season.
It should be interesting to see if Kaepernick takes up the commissioner on his invitation or just defers to the legal system to handle his grievance.

Suicide: Seahawks’ Michael Bennett, others ask NFL to support social activism

michael bennett

Bennett (l) and his buddy Kaepernick. Turning the NFL into full-time social justice activism.


If the NFL goes full SJW for BLM, kiss the league goodbye.
From MyNorthwest.com: Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett is one of four NFL players that have sent a letter to the NFL requesting support from the league, general managers and owners for community outreach and social justice efforts on the part of its players. The players have also requested that the NFL recognize November as activism awareness month.
“We always have different months (when) we recognize different people or different issues in America, and we felt like that was a big issue,” Bennett told reporters Wednesday when explaining the idea. “We wanted to find a way to recognize it and be able to have that conversation (where) people can find information about things they want to get involved with.”
The 10-page memo, obtained by Yahoo! Sports’ Charles Robinson was reportedly sent to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in August by Bennett, Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins and wide receiver Torrey Smith, and former NFL wide receiver Anquan Bolden. The players requested the following of the league:
“To be clear, we are asking for your support. We appreciate your acknowledgment on the call regarding the clear distinction between support and permission. For us, support means: bear all or part of the weight of; hold up; give assistance to, especially financially; enable to function or act. We need support, collaboration and partnerships to achieve our goal of strengthening the community. There are a variety of ways for you to get involved. Similar to the model we have in place for players to get involved, there are three tiers of engagement based on your comfort level.”
Bennett has been an advocate for social justice issues and routinely speaks out about police brutality, racism, and inequality. This season, Bennett has chosen to sit for the national anthem, telling reporters the gesture is an effort to use his platform to oppose segregation and oppression. Several teammates, including center Justin Britt, defensive ends Cliff Avril and Frank Clark, running back Thomas Rawls, and cornerback Jeremy Lane, have shown public support for Bennett during his silent protest.
“I don’t know what the chances are (that the league accepts our proposal),” Bennett said. “Hopefully, the chances are 100 percent, but we’ll see. It takes a lot for a business or organization to get behind certain issues, and we’re hoping to keep pushing it to see if we can ever get to that place where we can be comfortable with talking about the issues that are going on around the country.”

NFL player Michael Bennett claims racial profiling by LVPD…omits a few details from his story

michael bennett

Bennett (l) and his buddy Kaepernick.

I’ve told you about this NFL player before. He’s writing a book entitled, Things That Make White People Uncomfortable (due out next year) and he won’t stand for the national anthem until he “feels like everything is equal.”
This past Wednesday he went public with an incident he had with the Las Vegas Police Department in August. We know there are two sides to every story yet it’s quite interesting that Mr. Bennett omitted a couple important details from his story. Read on…
From MyNorthwest.com: Michael Bennett addressed reporters Wednesday afternoon, hours after he posted an open letter to Twitter detailing a disturbing encounter with Las Vegas police during which he was forcefully held to the ground and handcuffed by an officer.
(From Bennett’s Twitter post: ““A police officer ordered me to get on the ground,” Bennett wrote. “As I laid on the ground, complying with his commands to not move, he placed  his gun near my head and warned me that if I moved he would ‘blow my (expletive) head off’.”)
“A lot of people of color have dealt with this before,” Bennett said. “And I hate that it happened to me, but I’m lucky to be in the situation to have the platform to continuously speak on injustice.”
Bennett said he told his family, teammates and head coach Pete Carroll about the incident after it happened in late August. After seeking advice about how to handle it, Bennett ultimately decided to make a public statement.
“There’s a lot of people who experience what I experienced in that moment,” Bennett said. “And they’re not here to tell their story.
“It’s an emotional moment for me. I know a lot of people are like, ‘Oh, did he want this on himself?’ I didn’t ask for this moment. It just happened to be me… any moment, I could have made the wrong decision. Whether move or (make the officer feel) like I was resisting or doing something wrong, and (the Seahawks) would be wearing… the patch with the No. 72 on it.”
A clearly emotional Bennett stood at the podium at Seahawks headquarters in Renton and fielded questions for nearly seven minutes before pausing during a question about his family.
The question was about a statement he made last year about being a black man in America – how even great accomplishments or fame cannot protect or make people of color immune from racism, racial profiling or police brutality.
“I try to tell my daughters every single day that they matter, and that…” Bennett said, before quietly walking out of the auditorium.
Cornerback Richard Sherman, who spoke to reporters shortly after Bennett’s exit, said Bennett’s own encounter is evidence in itself for the causes Bennett publicly supports — including his controversial decision to sit during the national anthem.
“Mike is literally sitting, taking a stand, doing everything he can to combat the same thing that he experienced,” Sherman said.
“And people are so worried about him sitting down during the national anthem that they completely miss that message a lot of the time. They want to be more angry at the action than the message. And that’s an unfortunate part of the world we live in nowadays. I wish that people would take it for what it is and make a difference.”


And what exactly did the Las Vegas Police Department have to stay about the incident that occurred in late August? From USA Today:
Las Vegas police said that there is no evidence to Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett’s accusation that he was racially profiled by the department during an incident outside a casino. 
Las Vegas Police Department undersheriff Kevin McMahill held a news conference Wednesday to respond to Bennett’s allegations, which he revealed earlier in the day.
“Many of the folks today have called this a incident of bias-based policing, police officers focusing solely on the race of an individual that they’re going to stop,” McMahill said. “I can tell you as I stand here today, I see no evidence of that. I see no evidence that race played any role in this incident.”
The officer who apprehended Bennett didn’t have his body camera on and it was not immediately clear why, McMahil lsaid. He added there are 126 videos from the officers that will be reviewed, and if those reveal that “any policies or training was violated, those officers will be held accountable.”
In a social media post, Bennett claimed he was singled out for “simply being a black man.” He added that “the officers’ excessive use of force was unbearable.”
Officers responded to reports of a possible active shooter in the casino around 1:30 on Aug. 27 after the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight.
While searching for an active shooter, an officer noticed Bennett crouched near a gaming machine. Two officers gave chase when the individual (later identified as Bennett) ran out of the casino and onto the strip. Both officers were armed with handguns, and the arresting officer did not turn on his body camera.
“You hear the officer approaching the door saying, ‘There he is.’ He gives chase, Mr. Bennett jumped over the wall, our officer jumped went over the wall immediately there after,” McMahill said. He said Bennett was detained for 10 minutes and released.
Bennett said he was not given “any justification” for his apprehension.


So Mr. Bennett is “crouching” during an active shooter situation? Understandable if he knew what was occurring. But if he didn’t know it might be an active shooter situation, then why is he crouching behind a gaming machine?
Even if Bennett didn’t know of the active shooter situation, why would he choose to run from a police officer? Guess it’s just one of those things that might make us white people uncomfortable.
