    ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – In the middle of freezing temperatures from a historic winter storm and a global pandemic, Arlington police officers did their usual, everyday job and responded to a call about a longhorn on the run.

    In the wake of a riot at the U.S. Capitol, the suicides of two Washington police officers and the slayings of a pair of FBI agents attempting to serve a warrant in Florida, issues about the health and safety of American police officers have been getting some attention. But National Police Association spokesperson Sgt. Betsy Brantner Smith, a retired 29-year police veteran, told Fox News that while the high-profile incidents highlighted a handful of cases, the risks are deeper and far more common. "There’s a lot of law enforcement officers out there who are finding this sudden concern about our mental and physical wellbeing somewhat disingenuous, because it all centers around one incident – and that’s the Capitol riot," she told Fox News Friday. "Even though we have been dealing with violent riots, there have been hundreds and hundreds of police officers injured. There have been police officers murdered in...
    The White House did not back away from President Biden’s remarks Tuesday saying that a "vast majority" of law enforcement officers were "decent, honorable people" after two FBI agents were killed in the line of duty.  "They put their lives on the line and it’s a hell of a price to pay," Biden said from behind his desk in the Oval Office. "And every single day … by and large the vast, vast majority of these men and women are decent, honorable people who put themselves on the line. We owe them." "What did he mean by that, the vast majority part?" Fox News’ Kristin Fisher asked press secretary Jen Psaki.  "That is exactly what he meant," Psaki responded, before moving on to another reporter.  The "vast majority" comment, though not inaccurate, didn't sit well with some in the context of agents losing their lives. "I find it a little offensive,...
    Actor Denzel Washington made clear his support for America’s law enforcement officers, saying he doesn’t “care for people” who put them down. “I have the utmost respect for what they do, for what our soldiers do, [people] that sacrifice their lives,” Washington said. “I just don’t care for people who put those kind of people down. If it weren’t for them, we would not have the freedom to complain about what they do.” Washington’s comments come at a time when U.S. police officers are under increased criticism over heavy-handed tactics, especially when it comes to alleged discrimination against minority suspects. A summer of unrest over multiple high-profile law enforcement incidents sparked a movement to defund the police, most notably in Minneapolis, where George Floyd died while in police custody. In the actor’s latest movie, The Little Things, Washington plays a disgraced former Los Angeles County Sheriff’s detective who hunts...
    ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — The mother of a 9-year-old girl who was handcuffed and pepper-sprayed by Rochester police said the officers involved should be fired. Public outrage has been high since body camera footage released Sunday showed officers restraining and scolding the girl, who was screaming for her father. The mother, Elba Pope, told CNY Central on Tuesday that the conflict started as an argument between her and her spouse. The two were arguing outside when Pobe's daughter overheard them from inside the house, making her upset, Pobe said. "I was unaware that she was upset, I was unaware that she was feeling any type of way or that she had even heard the fight or the argument,” Pobe said, adding that officers ignored multiple requests for mental health assistance for her daughter during the conflict. Pobe ended up calling police on her spouse. When they arrived, her daughter left...
    ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — Police in Rochester released two body-camera videos Sunday of officers restraining a distraught 9-year-old girl who was handcuffed and sprayed with what police called a chemical “irritant.” The Democrat and Chronicle reported that prior to the release of the videos, Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren expressed her concern for the “child that was harmed during this incident that happened on Friday.” “I have a 10-year-old child, so she’s a child, she’s a baby. This video, as a mother, is not anything you want to see,” Warren went on to say. A total of nine officers and supervisors responded to the report of “family trouble” on Friday. The girl can be heard in the body-camera videos from officers at the scene screaming frantically for her father as the officers try to restrain her. At a news conference Sunday, Deputy Police Chief Andre Anderson described the...
    OAKLAND — A civilian commission that already oversees Oakland’s police department could take over all investigations into officers’ alleged misconduct under a proposal that will be going to the City Council in a few months as part of its budget deliberations. The Oakland Police Commission on Thursday night endorsed the proposal, which would place its investigatory arm, the Community Police Review Agency, in charge of investigating all public complaints against officers involving misconduct and use of force. The move would strip the police department of the authority to conduct its own internal affairs investigations. Making the shift would be no small task, warned John Alden, executive director of the agency, who now will bring the proposal to the city’s administration for review. The City Council would have to approve it in the coming months, as well as the federal monitor overseeing the police department. And the police union would have...
    Two Capitol Police officers have been suspended after supporters of President Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol, according to Representative Tim Ryan, who chairs the House Appropriations Committee. Ryan said on Monday that there were "10 to 15" investigations into Capitol Police officers.  The actions of some Capitol Police officers have come under intense scrutiny after videos showed some rioters entering the U.S. Capitol with ease on Wednesday. Some officers appeared to be friendly with the rioters in the videos. Ryan said an officer who took selfies with rioters and another who put on Mr. Trump's signature red "Make America Great Again" hat were suspended.  "There were two people suspended one was the selfie officer. And another was an officer who had put a MAGA hat on and started directing some people around. I don't know — let them in, let them out — exactly what it was, but it was...
    Two officers with the Capitol Police have been suspended for joking around with rioters during the storming of the Capitol on Wednesday - one taking a selfie with the Trump supporter, and the other putting on a MAGA hat and showing the rebels around - and a third member of law-enforcement arrested for alleged misconduct, a congressman said on Monday, as it emerged a total of 15 Capitol Police officers are being investigated. The selfie moment was captured by journalist Timothy Burke, and posted to Twitter in a tweet now retweeted 233,000 times, and 'liked' 220,000 times.  News of their suspension was confirmed by Tim Ryan, an Ohio representative who chairs a House panel probing last week's events.  A Capitol Police officer who posed for a selfie with a rioter (above) has been suspended Instead of repelling the intruders from the building, the officer hung out with them 'I...

    The Capitol Hill police were set up to fail, former Secret Service Agent Charles Marino said on Thursday, reacting to the rioters breaching the halls of Congress Wednesday night. "I think this shows overwhelmingly what a very real national security threat this was as well as a very real threat to the continuity of government," Marino told "America's Newsroom." Marino highlighted the "failure" to "anticipate what could go wrong, put together an overall security plan, deploy an amount of law enforcement officers that would match the number of protesters on the field, and coordinate resources in advance." "You had a rally yesterday with a lot of people. We know what the theme was -- it was questioning the validity of the election. We knew that the president was going to show up. You’ve got to take his rhetoric into account as inciting this group," Marino said. TOM COTTON SAYS PRO-TRUMP CAPITOL PROTESTERS WERE...

    CHICAGO — Police officers responsible for wrongfully raiding Anjanette Young’s home in 2019 — an incident captured on video and brought to light last week — are being taken off the street, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Monday. The officers will remain on desk duty while a city watchdog, the Civilian Office of Police Accountability, investigates what happened during the raid, Lightfoot said at a news conference. That investigation has already taken more than a year. “Now, we must respect COPA’s independence, but as I repeatedly told COPA’s chief administrator, I firmly believe in the value that justice delayed is justice denied,” Lightfoot said. “Frankly, there is no excuse that this matter has languished for a year without any significant movement on the part of COPA. “[Until the investigation is complete,] these officers need to be off the street.” It wasn’t immediately clear how many officers are being put on desk...
    A Boston police sergeant was put on leave amid an investigation into law enforcement's conduct during protests against racial injustice and the death of George Floyd. The move comes after The Appeal published footage of officers’ conduct during the protests over the summer. The footage reportedly shows officers threatening demonstrators and using excessive force, NBC News reported. Boston Police Commissioner William Gross said in a statement on Friday that he ordered the Bureau of Professional Standards to conduct a “thorough and fair investigation into this matter, and the totality of circumstances involved.” “I have placed a Sergeant involved in this incident on administrative leave and I will take any additional action as necessary at the conclusion of the investigation,” Gross said. “I want to encourage people to bring these matters to our attention so that we can investigate them appropriately.” Gross did not identify the sergeant who was placed on...
    Police bodycam footage shows the moment Florida officers plead with a suspect 'to put your hands up' before he was shot dead after disobeying their order.  Dylan Ray Scott, 27, was killed Tuesday night in Riverview after telling law enforcement he had a gun in his car, police say. A later search found no weapon.  Hillsborough County Sheriff's Deputy Timothy Miskell repeatedly tells Scott to put his 'hands up' and 'show me your hands' in video released by police.  Officers are said to have spent four minutes asking for Scott, wanted on charges of grand theft and resisting arrest, to show his hands before opening fire.  He is said to have written a note saying he wanted to 'die via suicide by cop' earlier this year, according to his mother.  Scroll down for video  Dylan Ray Scott was killed Tuesday night in Riverview after a standoff with cops.

    BENSALEM, Pa. (CBS) — Bensalem officials announced a new program Thursday that teams up two social workers with township police on a new response initiative. Public Safety Director Fred Harran said the model of responding to calls addresses important police reform issues brought to the forefront in the past several months. “The goal here is to keep people out of the criminal justice system that don’t need to be there,” Harran said. “To get people help that they desperately need because, in the United States of America, people shouldn’t be homeless, people shouldn’t be suffering from mental health without treatment in this great country.” The newly-hired social workers will respond to domestic, mental health, and substance abuse issues. Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub called the two-year pilot program “humanity-based.” “People always try to put things into a neat little box and put a label on that box. I think...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Hundreds of jobs in the city of Pittsburgh could be in jeopardy. Millions of dollars in federal funding is needed. The jobs that could be impacted include 200 police officers. According to the Trib, that was part of a three-hour-long hearing that went over next year’s proposed public safety budget. The paper says the city needs at least 26 million dollars by July 1st to avoid making cuts that include 600 city employees.

    Fired Rochester police chief La'Ron Singletary is refusing to cooperate with the probe into the death of black man Daniel Prude, according to the lawyer leading the investigation.  Prude, 41, died back in March after cops placed a spit hood over his head and pressed his face into the ground for two minutes in Rochester, New York, while he appeared to be suffering a psychotic episode. Rochester police and city officials were accused of a cover-up after his death went under the radar until Prude's family released shocking bodycam video in September showing the arrest of the naked, distressed man. His cause of death was ruled a suffocation but no charges have been brought against any of the officers involved and an investigation is still ongoing.  Singletary was fired by Mayor Lovely Warren last month days after he and several senior members of the force stood down in their masses...

    COPS in the Lake District have issued a warning to parents after kids were struck down by cannabis sweets that put 13 schoolgirls in hospital.

The girls suffered from “nausea, hyperactivity, elevated heart rates and hallucinations” after buying the ‘Medicated Nerds Rope...
    Every element of the criminal system is implicated in the failure to secure justice for Breonna Taylor. The cops, per the judge who signed off the warrant that set the events leading to Taylor’s murder in motion, likely obtained that paperwork using fabricated information. Shoddy police work saw Louisville law enforcement raid Taylor’s home despite the fact that the suspect they sought was already in their custody. The three officers who killed Taylor wildly fired more than 30 rounds between them into the darkness of her apartment, pumping at least six fatal shots into her body. They then ignored their own protocols, compromising the crime scene. And in the aftermath of Taylor’s killing, Commonwealth Attorney Tom Wine focused on posthumously smearing Taylor’s reputation by attempting to nail her as a “co-defendant” in a plea bargain deal. And then there was Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s seemingly strategic effort to avoid...
    Attorneys for the cops suspended over the death of Daniel Prude say the officers acted 'flawlessly' during their arrest of the unarmed black man.  Prude suffocated after he was arrested by cops during a psychotic episode in Rochester, New York on March 23.  Bodycam video - which showed a naked Prude being put into a spit hood and pinned to the ground - sparked outrage when it was released to the public last month and resulted in the suspension of seven officers who were at the scene.  But on Thursday, during a press conference held at the Rochester Police Union, lawyers said the officers were simply following protocol.   'There's no question it's a tragic situation for Mr. Prude's family, and there may need to be conversations about training and mental health intervention, but these officers did exactly what they were trained to do and they did it flawlessly,' a lawyer...
    Louisville was virtually deserted Sunday evening amid curfews to control protests after a grand jury declined to charge officers in the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor. Mayor Greg Fischer had urged people to begin heading home about an hour before the curfew was set to begin at 9pm as the protesters continued to gather. Taylor, 26, was shot multiple times March 13 after her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, fired at officers who had entered her home during a narcotics raid, authorities said. Sgt Jonathan Mattingly, Detective Myles Cosgrove and Officer Brett Hankison burst down the door to Taylor's home during a 'no knock' search warrant.  Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said Wednesday there was no evidence to support that Mattingly, who was shot, was hit by friendly fire from other officers. But the ballistics report seems to contradicts that finding, Vice reports. It states the 9mm bullet that hit Mattingly was neither...

    The family of a young Black man who died after police in Aurora, Colo., put him in a chokehold and paramedics injected him with ketamine, filed a federal civil rights lawsuit Tuesday. Three White officers responding to reports of a suspicious person wearing a ski mask stopped Elijah McClain, 23, in August 2019.

During the incident, McClain sobbed, said he could not breathe and vomited. Paramedics later injected him with about 500 milligrams of ketamine. The anesthetic also is known as “Special K” when used illegally. McClain went into cardiac arrest on the way to the hospital. He...

The video shows a man police identified as Wisnel Manzueta, 29, grabbing the cop in a headlock while the officer and his partner struggle to arrest another man on a Bronx street corner on July 1. Police said Manzueta was part of a crowd seen in the video taunting the two officers as they fought to put Franklin Adrian, 31, in a patrol car. Police said Adrian became violent after he was issued a ticket for parking near a fire hydrant. A week after the incident, Manzueta was charged with assault, but then let go when Bronx prosecutors delayed drawing up a complaint against him.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Bronx District Attorney’s Office had not yet pressed charges Monday, days after video surfaced showing an NYPD officer being put in a headlock by a man he was trying to arrest. The video taken on July 1 shows a pair of officers trying to put Franklin Adrian, 31, into a police cruiser. Police said Adrian was arrested because he repeatedly refused to move his car that was parked illegally by a pump on Morris Avenue. As Adrian resists, in the video, officers are surrounded by people who can be heard taunting them. Police said the officers called for back-up. It’s not clear what happened off camera, but in one moment on camera, you can see an officer lunge towards an onlooker, Wisnel Manzueta, 29. A struggle ensued – Manzueta punched the officer multiple times and put him in a headlock. CBS2 spoke with a witness...
    A video of an NYPD officer – attempting to break up a hostile crowd – being put in a headlock by a resisting suspect was tweeted out by the the Sergeants Benevolent Association as an example of the effect of anti-police legislation. The SBA, comprised of around 13,000 active and retired sergeants of the NYPD, tweeted with the full video of the altercations: "COREY JOHNSON your STUPID law is about to be signed by NYC STUPID Mayor its time you both take your community input & grab these perps yourself." Johnson, a Democrat, is the speaker of the New York City council. He introduced the bill to criminalize the use of the chokehold by NYPD officers. The July 1 video, with a man filming screaming obscenities and anti-police sentiment, shows NYPD attempting to disperse a crowd in the Bronx and an officer wrestling a suspect. The officer ultimately was put in a headlock...
    Andres Guardado had surrendered and was lying facedown on the ground when a Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy who had been chasing him down a driveway holstered his weapon and approached the 18-year-old to put him in handcuffs, the deputy would recount. Suddenly, according to this account, Guardado reached for the gun he’d moments before agreed to drop, which was still on the ground above his right hand, prompting the deputy to redraw his weapon. The deputy fired six rounds, five of which struck the teenager in the back, killing him. The narrative of Deputy Miguel Vega, provided to The Times through his attorney, raises fresh questions about the tactics used during yet another deadly police encounter that has garnered national attention and prompted large demonstrations by activists and Guardado’s relatives, who called the shooting unjustified. Experts questioned several aspects of the incident, including what kind of cover Vega had...
    A crying and shaking Hackensack man who’d already cut himself several times refused to drop a bloody kitchen knife when a trio of city officers found him. Sgt. Michael Capone and Officers Mark Carrillo and Stanislav Tovbin found the man “visibly distraught” after a 911 call brought them to a Lodi Street home Wednesday morning, Detective Capt. Darren DeWitt said. He'd already cut his neck several time when the officers repeatedly asked him to put down the knife, the captain said. He refused. “With disregard for their own safety and with concern that [he] would hurt himself further, the officers moved in unison towards him,” DeWitt said. Carrillo grabbed his right hand, which was clutching the knife, and Capone and Tovbin took from him after a brief struggle, the captain said. The man “continued to kick and struggle with the officers as they summoned an ambulance” and eventually was taken away...
    A man who was placed in a chokehold by a cop on a Queens boardwalk June 21 was arrested himself on Tuesday in The Bronx - charged with a hate crime after he allegedly harassed two gay men, hurling anti-gay slurs at them as he tried to steal their Louis Vuitton bag with a box cutter, police sources told DailyMail.com. Ricky Bellevue, 35, and another man allegedly approached a gay couple, aged 27 and 30, on the sidewalk at East 149th Street and 3rd Avenue in the South Bronx at about noon on Tuesday, sources said.

The men resisted, and a fight broke out. The 27-year-old man was cut in the face and both hands with...
