There seems to be no news reports on what is happening here but it appears someone is losing their mind, getting undressed, rubbing AA worker's heads and finally, after way too long, gets arrested.
This video would be just too sad if not for his friend's hilarious commentary.
A Pasco County Sheriff's Office K-9 and his handler made fast work of chasing down a suspect over the weekend.
The sheriff's office released a from Deputy Carmack 's body camera showing him and his K-9, Shep chasing a suspect through a neighborhood in Hudson after a victim reported three men pulled a gun and fired in his direction.
The shows Deputy Carmack release Shep's leash and the dog race forward around a home.
The next scene shows Shep with the suspect lying face down on the ground as another deputy handcuffs the suspect, 19-year-old Daniel Joseph Still, Jr.
Deputies later caught the other two suspects. All three are charged with aggravated assault and resisting arrest without violence.
A sheriff’s spokesperson said Shep and the office’s other K-9s are invaluable.
”It provides us a step up, especially on tracking,” said sheriff’s spokesperson Amanda Hunter. “And the dogs can run much faster, too. They're able to catch up with suspects a lot quicker.”
A Florida woman was arrested after leading law enforcement authorities on a wild vehicle pursuit in a stolen van. The chase ended with the suspect flipping the vehicle several times as she attempted to flee.
Law enforcement authorities identified the driver as Sarah Yurman. She was injured in the crash and taken to Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach.
Upon her medical release, she will face multiple charges, including attempting to flee, eluding law enforcement and possession of narcotics, according to Fox.
Police video of Marietta Councilman Reginald “Reggie” Copeland being arrested shows he ignored an officer’s instructions for over 10 minutes before backup police arrived and Copeland was forcibly pulled out of his truck and placed in handcuffs.
“It’s someone who thinks they’re above the law, it’s a councilman,” arresting officer Ryan Lukaszewicz says to another Marietta police officer in bodycam footage. “Won’t acknowledge me at all, just like I’m not even there.”
Copeland, 57, was sentenced as a first offender in the State Court of Cobb County last week in relation to his May 2019 arrest, per court documents, but his criminal court case is now sealed from public view so it’s not known what charge or charges he admitted to and what his sentence is. Before the case was sealed by Judge Maria Golick, Copeland faced four misdemeanor charges of obstructing police.
The MDJ obtained a dozen Marietta police video files showing Copeland’s arrest, including nine body camera videos and three from patrol car cameras, through an Open Records Act request. The MDJ also obtained a full police incident report with a written transcript of the arresting officer's video footage.
The video shows Copeland first interacting with Officer Lukaszewicz, who responded to a minor car collision on Fairground Street on May 24, 2019.
Lukaszewicz spends 13 minutes asking Copeland to move his vehicle to the side of the road and provide his driver’s license before saying “I’m done” and pulling the councilman out of his Dodge Ram truck with the help of two backup officers.
Less than 10 minutes beforehand, Lukaszewicz is heard on the video saying to another officer “I’m just going to cut him (Copeland) loose in a second here,” indicating that he did not initially intend to arrest the councilman.
There was never any suggestion Copeland caused the car collision. The other driver involved, a 19-year-old woman, is seen receiving a citation for making an improper U-turn in the arresting officer’s bodycam footage.
“He’s driver two in all this so I don’t know what the big deal is,” Lukaszewicz says to another officer about Copeland resisting police.
Copeland did eventually move his vehicle off the road and into a nearby parking lot, but he continued to ignore the officer, rolling up his car windows and refusing to answer questions or comply with orders.
“You realize you’re wasting my time and you’re obstructing my investigation, OK?” Lukaszewicz says to Copeland, as seen in the video footage. “Do you understand that? Are you going to keep ignoring me?”
In the dozen or so minutes that Copeland can be seen ignoring Lukaszewicz’s repeated requests, the councilman sits in his truck and makes several phone calls, first calling 911 although police are already on scene. He tells the dispatcher his back hurts but he doesn’t need an ambulance, and that an officer has tried to slam his foot in his car door.
“Let her know you’re out with the cops and you’re wasting 911’s time right now,” Lukaszewicz says to Copeland while the councilman is talking with the dispatcher.
Copeland can then be heard in the footage speaking on his phone to Marietta Police Department Deputy Chief Marty Ferrell, again claiming Lukaszewicz tried to shut his foot in his truck door and explaining his version of events.
Copeland hands the phone to Lukaszewicz, who tells Ferrell “I’m trying to handle an accident but he (Copeland) keeps getting in his car and rolling up his windows and won’t talk to me. He wants to play games and sit in his car the whole time.”
It’s not long before things between the parties get heated and Copeland is pulled from his car.
The NYPD released body-cam footage Friday depicting the events that led to a fatal police shooting of a mentally ill man who attacked an officer with a metal chair.
The incident happened at a Brownsville nail salon around 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 25, 2019, after cops were called to the location for a report of someone urinating inside.
Officer Lesly Lafontant and his partner Officer Joseph Leon entered the salon and began speaking to the man, who became aggressive and started shouting at workers, calling them “” and demanding to see their “green card,” the shows.
“Shut the f–k up , you’re not even American,” the man yelled as Lafontant and Leon tried to arrest him.
The man violently resisted the arrest and as the two cops were struggling to put cuffs on him, a T-shirt vendor outside of the store, 33-year-old Kwesi Ashun, burst into the store and attacked Lafontant, the shows.
Ashun, who’d been outside hawking his own hand-embroidered wares, punched Lafontant in his face when the arrest started to get physical between the public urinator and the two officers, the shows.
“Seemingly, without provocation, the suspect began to assault Officer Lafontant by repeatedly striking him in the face with his fist. As Mr. Ashun continued to punch Mr. Lafontant, Officer Leon discharged his taser at the subject,” a police spokesman says in the before it’s played.
“The prongs struck Mr. Ashun in the lower left side of his back but the taser was ineffective in stopping the subject. The subject then picked up a steel chair and struck Officer Lafontant with it several times causing serious physical injury.”
Approximately 12 seconds later, Lafontant used his service weapon and fired six rounds at Ashun, police said. Four bullets struck the man, killing him, cops said.
Much of the attack, including the actual shooting, wasn’t clearly captured on camera, but Leon’s body-cam captures a brief glimpse of a man wearing a hat come into the salon and attack Lafontant. His body camera had been shut off, “possibly” because of physical contact he had during the arrest attempt, police said.
On 1/27/20 at 3:20pm, this young lady was fishing off of docks in Harrison Township. As she attempted to stand up, she lost her footing and slipped off the dock into the freezing water. The young lady’s friend was a dock over and heard her fall; she looked over to see her friend struggling in the icy waters. Her friend was unable to pull her up to the dock and the young lady’s body began to go numb.
Two nearby fishermen heard the women’s cries and came over to help. The two fishermen attempted to pull the woman up onto the dock but struggled as the young lady’s body had become completely numb and she was unable to move. Her friend called for help as the fisherman held on to the young lady keeping her from slipping underwater and surely drowning.
The Macomb County Sheriff’s Office along with the Harrison Fire Department arrived on scene and was able to pull the young lady from the 36-degree water. She was believed to be in the water for approximately 15 minutes.
The young lady is doing better today but wants to remind people to always fish with a partner and make sure you have proper, non-slip, footwear when you walking on any slippery surface. She is forever grateful to her friend and the fisherman that saved her life.
Masked anti-cop protesters flooded Grand Central Terminal at the start of rush hour Friday in an attempt to shut down the commuter hub — but the whole thing soon fizzled out.
There were at least 12 arrests following a skirmish between cops and demonstrators, who refused to remove their masks despite repeated orders from police.
Some of the agitators attempted to approach a nearby subway entrance, only to find it blocked off. Others chanted loudly while holding signs with messages like “Money for elevators not more cops,” “F–k the police fight the power” and “No fare no cops.”
Nineteen-year-old student Justin Jay Fernandez had a controversial physical altercation with a San Diego Miramar College Campus Police officer on Sept. 4.
The altercation was made public, with a video recording of it posted on YouTube. As of Sept. 24 it has gained a viewing of 1,684 views and counting.
From the video, a viewer easily gains an understanding that the police officer confronted Fernandez for allegedly skateboarding on the San Diego Miramar College campus. Lt. Terry Hiett of the San Diego Community College District Police Department confirmed that he was in fact skateboarding on a walkway leading into the Business and Math Building. In the video, the police officer reminded Fernandez that before the altercation started, the police officer said to him “in the lobby (of the Business and Math Building) I was talking to you and I told you were detained, and that we had to talk about it and you said ‘no’ and you decided to walk away.”
On October 16, 2014, now retired Modesto Police Detective Dave Wallace and his partner, Officer Michael Callahan, conducted a security check at 528 Milo Road following a frantic 911 call from Plaintiff Jesse Montelongo’s mother about her son being aggressive toward her – a call in which she told 911 dispatchers that he had something but couldn’t finish saying what he had before the call was suddenly disconnected.
Officers responded and eventually contacted Jesse Montelongo. During the officer’s encounter with him, shots were fired, resulting in Montelongo being stuck once. Montelongo filed a federal lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Detective Wallace and the City of Modesto claiming violations of his constitutional rights for excessive force and other claims.
The Modesto City Attorney’s Office reviewed all investigative material, which included the criminal case, the Modesto Police Department’s internal review, and the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s investigation. Their review resulted in the following analysis:
Upon arriving at the house on October 16, 2014 Officer Callahan was told by Montelongo’s sister outside – who had returned from a trip to check on Montelongo – that he had been aggressive toward their mother earlier that night and she was concerned.
After Detective Wallace and his partner – both in full police uniforms – approached the house and knocked on the front door, they heard the sounds of Montelongo’s mother frantically screaming “Help me!! Help me, Please!!” coming from the side of the house. As Callahan rushed off toward the frantic cries,
Detective Wallace followed him to provide tactical cover when Wallace was suddenly confronted by Montelongo who emerged from the front door. Montelongo stood just inside the door frame concealing his right hand in which he was holding a dark linear object that was not fully visible. Despite two loud and clear commands by Detective Wallace given at gunpoint to “Show me your hands! Now!!” Montelongo refused to show his hands and instead suddenly and aggressively lunged at Detective Wallace, swinging out the same concealed hand and yelling profanity at Wallace.
Given the tense and rapidly unfolding circumstances – including what Wallace had learned from 911, Montelongo’s sister, and the frantic cries for help coming from the house – when Montelongo ignored the commands to show his hand and suddenly lunged at Wallace with the same concealed hand,
Detective Wallace believed he was going to be assaulted and ducked and fired one round from his service weapon. Detective Wallace completed the shot within 1.5 seconds of when Montelongo first began his sudden aggressive lunging movement.
Montelongo was hit in the abdomen but survived. Unbeknownst to Detective Wallace at the moment he shot, Montelongo was not actually concealing a gun, but a dark hardcover book, which he threw at Detective Wallace.
The shooting was captured on Detective Wallace’s body worn camera. After the shooting, Modesto police called medical personnel who arrived shortly thereafter to come to Montelongo’s assistance.
Montelongo lied under oath about the confrontation with Detective Wallace, saying he had tossed a beer can next to his feet, which falsity he included in his federal complaint as well.
Following full discovery, the City of Modesto and Detective Wallace filed a motion for summary judgment to have Montelongo’s claims dismissed on the grounds that Detective Wallace’s use of force was justified because Detective Wallace reasonably believed that Montelongo was an immediate lethal threat when he disregarded commands to show his hands and suddenly lunged at Detective Wallace.
Detective Wallace’s actions were consistent with his training and Modesto Police Department policy to try to avoid a lethal threat (by ducking or moving) while simultaneously neutralizing the threat (including with the use of force), which is exactly what Detective Wallace did. The Court has taken the City’s motion for summary judgment under submission and has vacated the trial and all other dates for this case.
French riot police clashed with uniformed firefighters at protests in Paris on Tuesday, in extraordinary scenes where police used batons and shields against crowds of angry fire officers in helmets.

Anaheim police shot a man to death Dec. 12 after he wrestled a gun away from an officer, according to a video released by the Anaheim Police Department on Saturday, Jan. 25.
Until now, police have not publicly disclosed why they shot Taevonte Art Emmanuel.
“He’s trying to take my gun – trying to take my gun,” the officer can be heard shouting on the video as he and two other officers fought the man. The officer’s uniform-mounted camera is pointed toward the ceiling of a parking garage during the fight, indicating that the officer was likely on his back. “He’s got it! He’s got it!” the officer then yells.
Moments later, at least six shots can be heard. Emmanuel, 34, of Anaheim, is then shown lying face down. He died at a hospital, Anaheim police said. No officers were reported shot.
Investigations by the Police Department and Orange County District Attorney’s Office are ongoing, Deputy Chief Rick Armendariz said in the video.
“We withhold judgment and do not draw any conclusions about whether or not our officers acted in a manner consistent with our policies and in accordance with the law until all the facts are known and the investigations are complete,” Armendariz said.

Police brutality or by the books arrest?
A supermarket in central Auckland was closed after a dramatic incident on Saturday night involving police.
The Countdown store in Victoria St shut its doors just before 8pm for about 30 minutes while a pool of blood was cleaned up.
Police said they located a person in central Auckland in breach of their conditions. The person then fled into the supermarket.
"It appears they have fallen over and required medical treatment and were taken to hospital," a police spokesperson said.
"The person caused a scene in the store and, unfortunately, fell while running erratically around the supermarket."
Joanne Mercader, 59, was arrested and charged with battery on a person 65 or older after she threw a bucket of human feces on her landlord, according to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies responded to a trailer in Osteen, near Deltona in Central Florida, around 5:15 p.m. Saturday where they found a woman dripping in human waste and Mercader with caked feces on her face, the agency says.
Mercader originally claimed to be the victim, initially telling deputies that her landlord had tossed the bucket of feces onto her “as a method of eviction,” the incident report says.
“My landlord just broke into my house and assaulted me,” Mercader said, according to the body cam footage.
When asked why she had dried feces smeared across her cheeks, she attempted to explain her appearance.
“She took the poop and rubbed it all over [my face],” Mercader said.
Deputies, however, were confused, especially after she admitted that this was part of her ongoing dispute with the landlord.
“In a long time that I’ve been doing this job, I’ve never seen anything like it, okay?” the deputy replied. “I’m not disputing what you’re telling me but... she’s dripping with it, soaking wet. [Yours] is not.”
Mercader later confessed to accidentally throwing the bucket at the landlord “as soon as she entered the residence,” according to the report. The toss, however, wasn’t an accident — it was the contents.
“Joanne claimed she intended to use a bucket of water but got the two buckets confused,” the deputy wrote.
Jail records show Mercader posted her bond late Sunday morning. Her arraignment is scheduled for Jan. 29.
In the Bronx, at approximately 3 pm, three officers in uniform, in a marked police vehicle, assigned to the 52 Precinct, observed an SUV occupied by two individuals traveling in the area of Bainbridge Avenue, approaching East 211 Street with the driver of the vehicle not wearing a seatbelt.
At this time, the officers turned on their police emergency lights and initiated a car stop. After turning right onto East 211 Street the vehicle stopped for the officers. Two police officers approached the car on the driver's side and a sergeant approached the vehicle on the passenger side. Using their department smartphones, the officers determined that the driver of the vehicle had three open warrants. The officers then directed the man to exit the vehicle so he could be placed under arrest.
As the officers attempted to arrest him outside the vehicle, the man physically resisted and got back into the car.
While both front doors of the car were still open, the male initiated a violent struggle. The sergeant immediately deployed his taser for multiple cycles. While it appeared to be a successful deployment it failed to end the struggle.
During the struggle, the man shifted the car into drive, moving the car forward and backwards, with the sergeant still inside the vehicle.
When the car was put in reverse, the officer on the driver's side had to release his grip on the male and jump out of the way to avoid getting struck by the car. The driver's door then quickly closed.
This violent struggle between the male and the officers lasted approximately one and a half minutes before the shot was fired.
At this time the sergeant fired one round from his service weapon striking the male in the chest. The officers then began to render aid.
The male was pronounced deceased at Saint Barnabas Hospital.
The passenger, who was in the vehicle during the encounter, was unharmed.
All three officers were taken to a local hospital for evaluation.
Happened in the State of Paraná, Brasil.
This man seems to me having a mental breakdown at this strip mall when he starts yelling at himself and others around him. He stormed into a pizza place where he threatens staff, starts throwing utensils around.
The cops came and one of the officers uses his taser on him and somehow, it didn't even phase him, just seemed to agitate him more. He lunges at the cop and at that point was forcibly taken down and arrested.
No, he's not naked, he's wearing ONE sandal.
The crowd seems to be pleased a degenerate is back among them where he belongs.

A 69-year-old man facing eviction is accused of fatally shooting two Honolulu police officers who were responding to the scene of a stabbing. The suspect then apparently set a raging fire that destroyed at least seven homes and damaged others in an affluent community on the slopes of Diamond Head.
In a news conference Sunday afternoon, a visibly shaken Police Chief Ballard identified those killed as: Officers Tiffany Enriquez, a seven-year veteran of the force; and Kaulike Kalama, a nine-year veteran of the force. As Ballard spoke to reporters, her voice shook with emotion as she fought back tears. “On behalf of the men and women of the Honolulu Police Department, we extend our deepest condolences,” she said. “I knew each one of them very personally.”
The rampage rocked a state unaccustomed to violence and left many in disbelief. “This is a family and people are grieving,” Mayor Kirk Caldwell told reporters.
Ballard identified the suspect as Jerry Hanel, and authorities believe he died when the home he was in went up in flames. His remains have not yet been located, but Ballard said processing the scene could take days.
Court documents show Hanel has a history of erratic behavior and making false 911 reports. His attorney said he had delusions that he was being tracked by the FBI. Ballard said he had no permits to own firearms. Meanwhile, two people ― both women ― remain unaccounted for in the wake of the day’s events. Their identities have not been released.
The video above shows the suspect, Jerry Hanel from a police body cam in May of 2019 and the second part of the video shows the fire Hanel set yesterday.
Kid thinks he's OG as he sends the police on a wild goose chase just to get some street cred from other white, suburban kids.
Lessons learned boys. Think with the big head. Criminals come in all shapes and sizes. Even when the cops come, he doesn't press charges, what an idiot.
This may look like a scene from cell block C but it's just another day in our public education system.
