The UPS truck that was shot over 200 times by Florida police officer. The shootout killed the driver and an innocent bystander along with the 2 suspects that hijacked the truck.
Miami Herald- In the hours since a high-speed chase took police across Miami-Dade and into Broward County and ended with a barrage of bullets and four people dead in Miramar on Thursday evening, Florida politicians, law enforcement officials and the family members of one victim have started to ask: Was a less violent outcome possible?
Genny Merino, the sister of UPS driver Frank Ordonez, who was taken hostage and died in the shootout, said in a post on Twitter early Friday morning that the police handled the situation poorly.
“Today I lost my brother, because of the [expletive] negligence and stupidity of the police,” she wrote. “Instead of negotiating with a hostage situation they just shot everyone.”
During the chase’s violent finale on Miramar Parkway, a cluster of cars stopped in peak rush-hour traffic became shields for police. Officers ran and ducked around pedestrians, who witnessed over 100 rounds of gunfire that looked like small bursts of light and smoke in the daylight.
On November 29, 2019, shortly after 9 PM, Modesto Police Officers responded to the Motel 6 located at 1920 West Orangeburg Avenue in Northwest Modesto to assist a bail bondsman with taking a wanted subject into custody.
The wanted subject was identified as 54-year-old Raymond Lee of Modesto. Lee had outstanding felony warrants. During the contact at the hotel room, Lee brandished a weapon towards officers. The two officers fired their weapons, striking Lee, who died at the scene from his injuries. It was later discovered that Lee’s weapon was a BB gun.
The officers involved in this shooting have been identified as Officer Jeffrey Brandon, who has been with the department for three years and Officer Cameron Irinaga, a one-year veteran of the department.
Both officers were not injured and have been placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure for all officer involved shootings. Three separate and comprehensive investigations are initiated when our officers are involved in a critical incident such as this.
The Modesto Police Department is conducting both a criminal and administrative investigation and the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office is conducting their own independent review of this incident.
An off-duty police officer who stepped in to help a woman who claimed her phone had been stolen was attacked by a group of teenagers at a busy outdoor shopping center in California on Black Friday.
The assault – which was captured on video – happened around 8 p.m. at the Bay Street Mall in Emeryville, located next to Oakland. The Emeryville Police Department said Monday a woman seen in surveillance video wearing white clothes approached a group of teenagers and accused them of taking her cellphone minutes earlier.
"She confronted them asking for her phone back. During the confrontation, the juveniles got aggressive with the victim and began to assault the victim," Emeryville Police Detective Jaime Pardo told reporters.
After spotting the commotion, a California Highway Patrol officer – who asked to only be identified as Greg B. – approached the group and tried to secretly take photos until one of the girls in the crowd noticed what he was doing.
"The group then turned toward him and became violent with him," Pardo said.
New Orleans police are investigating a mass shooting along Canal Street.
Surveillance video obtained shows crowds fleeing after shots were fired.
According to NOPD, 10 people were struck by gunfire in the 700 block of Canal Street just before 3:30 a.m. Sunday.
Superintendent Shaun Ferguson says officers were on the block when the shooting happened. No officers were reported injured.
A person was detained near the scene, however, police say their involvement in this incident remains under investigation.
No arrests have been made.
During a 5 a.m. press conference, Ferguson said two of the 11 victims were in critical condition. No further details are available as to their respective statuses at this time.
Louisiana State Police and federal officers are assisting NOPD in response and investigation.
New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell issued a statement regarding the Canal Street shooting:
"When people resort to gun violence to resolve problems, it never creates solutions — only innocent victims and trauma.
The shootings on Canal Street early this morning were an ugly disruption of an otherwise beautiful holiday weekend. We will do everything we can to wrap the victims and their families in our love and support, and to bring the criminals responsible to justice.
The City of New Orleans will not allow incidents like this to derail the progress we have made, or to further disrupt our community.
I applaud our public safety team for their instant and efficient response — particularly our NOPD officers who were on the scene within seconds. This tragedy will not define us, and it will not deter us from moving our City forward and keeping our people safe."
Investigators are currently in the process of gathering evidence and information to identify the person(s) responsible for this incident, as well as a motive.
Before he was stopped by two gunshot wounds to the midsection, a suspect who breached a secure area at McCarran International Airport and got onto the tarmac early Thursday fractured an officer’s face, knocked a second officer to the ground and ran at the sergeant who shot him, according to Metro Police.
Jordan Henry, 32, was stabilized at University Medical Center but remained in critical condition two days after the shooting, said Clark County Assistant Sheriff Charles Hank in a briefing today.
Investigators were trying to determine what Henry, an Indianapolis resident who’d been in Las Vegas four days before the shooting, was doing at the airport Thursday. He’d missed a flight the previous day and didn’t have a ticket for another one, Hank said.
Metro also is searching for a second person who had accompanied him to the airport but was not present during the breach, Hank said.
The incident began about 3:15 a.m. in Terminal 3, where Henry triggered alarms when he went behind a ticket counter into a secured employee area. When officers located Henry, he was at a baggage handling area on the tarmac near Terminal 1.
A driver was stopped by a Livermore Police Officer when a turkey approached the scene. As the officer was trying to write the ticket, the bird became more aggressive as shown by body-cam footage. The shocking video was uploaded on the Livermore Police Department’s official Twitter page.
Due to the turkey’s aggressive behavior, the officer was unable to give out the ticket. He let the driver go with a warning.

A 41-second cellphone video captured the incident and was posted to social media.
Police say two officers approached a 29-year-old man who was drinking alcohol at a bus stop in the Chatham neighborhood. Officers said the man became "irate" and threatened them.

The man has been identified by his mother as Bernard Kersh. Keshia Johnson said she fell to her knees after watching the video of her son.
"I was nervous. I was scared. My heart dropped. I know I automatically thought the worst. He wasn't moving," Johnson said.

Mess with the bull, you get the teeth.
Resisting arrest is stupid. Attempting to actually assault the cop is just begging for some painful justice. He's just lucky the cop didn't shoot him.
WHO'S A GOOD BOY???? OH YEA, RATCHET CHOMPER'S A GOOD BOY!
HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Los Angeles police shot and killed a person armed with a machete during a confrontation in Hollywood Monday that left an officer injured, the LAPD said.
Dramatic video shows the officer chasing the suspect who was running down the street with a long machete. The officer can be heard shouting commands at the suspect, who then turns around and runs toward the officer with the weapon in his hand.
Several shots were fired by the officer as he backed away from the still-approaching suspect, causing the officer to run into the street and subsequently fall down. Just as the suspect reaches the officer on the ground, two additional officers arrive and one shoots the suspect.
The chain of events was sparked around 11:30 a.m. when the suspect robbed an auto parts store on Highland Boulevard near Sunset Avenue at knifepoint, police said. He then carjacked a vehicle from somebody at a nearby fast food restaurant, eventually crashing into two police cars as he fled from the restaurant.
Officers began chasing the suspect when he exited the vehicle and started running with the machete in hand, eventually culminating in the fatal officer-involved shooting.
Really bruh? Where does your street cred go from here?
This obnoxious fool has a total meltdown at London Bridge subway station, pushing several people, including women and claiming he's 'A F*CKING LEGEND' before receiving 50k volts through his useless, British carcass.
Watch as this cop-hating fool approach the police in a menacing way and dares them to arrest him.
Oh, they did way more than that. They first peppered him up nice, let him marinate for a few before dragging him down by his dreads.
His next dare should be for bail.
So they won't show ID and answer a couple of questions but instead get into the cops' faces and they wonder why things spiral out of control.
Video shows what is reported to be a 17-year old protestor being shot by Columbian police during protests Saturday.
A curfew was imposed in Colombia's capital of Bogotá late on Friday as violent anti-government protests continued for a second day.
Thousands defied the curfew on Friday while over a quarter of a million people marched in the streets on Thursday across the country to express their anger at proposed labor reforms, the murder of human rights activists and what they see as a government that is unwilling to tackle corruption.
Authorities said three police were killed in a bomb explosion in the southwest of the country on Friday in the town of Santander de Quilichao in the southwestern province of Cauca, an area considered to be a hotspot for drug trafficking and violence.
The condition of the young man is not known at present time.
Must be one of those sanctuary F1s.
So who's wrong? Did the cop have a right to ask a man who has a permit to carry to get out of the car for a busted headlight? Or did the driver's distrust of police escalate the situation.
Which unlucky officer will have to dig out that crack rock out of the crackhead's crack?
The Pasadena Police Department released body cam and in-car video in response to claims that officers violated the civil rights of two people during separate incidents.
John Burton, a local attorney representing the two men, claimed that the officers’ actions were unjustified and that his clients were racially profiled.
The Pasadena Police Department responded to the claims by releasing the video footage.
“You will have the same view of the drivers as the officers did, and you can determine whether race was visible and could have been a factor in the stop,” Chief John E. Perez said. “None of us want our officers to ignore traffic violations or intoxicated drivers, placing all of us at great risk.”
This second incident, the video shows police and the driver, Kamau Bar, engaged in a physical altercation after he was stopped for allegedly speeding. According to police, Bar was combative and intoxicated.
“If there was a reason to initiate a personnel investigation into the actions of any of the officers involved, it would have been done.”
But Burton contends that the city’s gang task force officers have a racial profiling problem.
Prosecutors in Tucson dropped disorderly conduct charges against a 15-year-old quadruple amputee after viewing video of a sheriff’s deputy wrestling him to the floor in a group home, the teen’s attorney said Friday.
Samuel Jurgena, a Pima County public defender, said his client went public with cellphone video of the September incident in Tucson to prompt changes in police treatment of youths in group homes.
“I think everyone feels in my office this cop should not be out here with a badge and a gun if this is how he’s treating kids in group homes,” Jurgena told The Associated Press.
The AP is withholding the teen’s name because of his age.
KOLD-TV reported Thursday night that the Pima County Attorney’s Office said it decided to drop the charges immediately after seeing the video, which was shot by another resident. A worker had called 911 after the 15-year-old allegedly kicked a trash can over and made a verbal threat, according to authorities.
The teen said he was already on the ground when police got there.
“Instead of getting down on his level to talk to him, the first interaction was the cop standing over him and yelling at him,” Jurgena said.
The start of the eight-minute video shows the deputy tussling on the kitchen floor with the boy, who is screaming and cursing. The deputy then uses his body to pin the teen on his side. After about two minutes, the officer gets up. He then talks to the teen, telling him to “shut the hell up.”
The boy did not suffer any physical injuries. But Jurgena said the treatment he endured was nevertheless appalling.
“He does not have the ability to fight back in a way like a normal person would,” Jurgena said.
The video later shows another teenage boy being handcuffed. Jurgena said that boy, 16, was the one initially filming. Deputies caused him to hit his head on a wall and then put him in a patrol vehicle, according to Jurgena. But he was then released.
Marissa Hernandez, a Pima County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman, said Friday that the agency is conducting an internal investigation. She did not identify the deputy in the video or say if his duties would change during the course of the investigation.
