Cop to bystanders: 'Stop f-king filming and help me!'

A Houston police officer who struggled to subdue a suspect Tuesday received no assistance from some onlookers, including a uniformed security guard, despite pleas for help.

The incident occurred at a gas station after the officer stopped a vehicle in connection with a nearby shooting and aggravated robbery, according the report.

Cell phone footage of the altercation shows the suspect trying to fight off the officer and making multiple attempts to reach for the officer’s gun.

[OPINION] Dear Democrats and Republicans, Please Keep Tearing Down Your Government

Anybody expecting respect for the overall government to survive current leadership unscathed is dreaming. And as somebody who considers government little more than a dangerous weapon in the hands of competing tribes of control freaks, all I can say is: More, please.

'The Press Uses Silence': Gutfeld Responds to Light Coverage of Officer Stopping Potential School Shooter

Greg Gutfeld said much of the mainstream media either did not report or did not give enough coverage to the story of a school resource officer preventing a potential mass shooting in Illinois this week.

Officer Mark Dallas "charged" after a young gunman fired at him at Dixon High School in Illinois, officials said. They added that the officer shot and wounded the potential killer.

The Chicago Tribune identified the suspect as 19-year-old Matthew Milby, a former student at the school, about halfway between Davenport, Iowa and Chicago.

Corporate Gun Control Might Be the Worst Threat to Gun Rights

Let’s be honest. If you own guns or you’re a gun-rights supporter, and if you’re concerned about government restrictions on your Second Amendment rights, the future looks bright. The elevation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court may well represent the death knell for draconian forms of gun control — including bans on so-called “assault weapons” and bans on standard-capacity magazines in semi-automatic pistols and rifles.

Court: district attorney was not liable for malicious prosecution or fabrication of evidence

McDonough v. Smith August 3, 2018

(United States Second Circuit) - Affirmed that a district attorney was not liable for malicious prosecution or fabrication of evidence. This lawsuit was brought by the former Democratic Commissioner of the Rensselaer County Board of Elections, who was acquitted in state court of forging absentee ballots in a local primary election. He contended that the district attorney who prosecuted the case had violated his civil rights. However, the Second Circuit held that the plaintiff's due process claim was time-barred and his malicious prosecution claim was precluded by absolute immunity. The panel therefore affirmed the dismissal of those claims.
