    Members of the Minneapolis City Council claimed this week that the group never said it would defund the police department. “‘Defund’ is not the framework the council has ever chosen,” Councilman Steve Fletcher told KSTP during a recent interview. “If we’re going to look at how we fund different programs, it would be very hard to do that without taking that money from the Minneapolis Police Department,” he continued. However, following George Floyd’s death, Fletcher and Councilman Phillipe Cunningham joined their colleagues on a stage in Powderhorn Park and “pledged to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department, while standing behind a banner that read ‘Defund Police,'” the KSTP article said. In June, the council voted unanimously to abolish the police department, and on December 10, it cut $8 million from the department’s budget. By November, the city was reportedly experiencing the most homicides since the mid-1990s. “The number of homicides thus far in...

    By Libby George LAGOS (Reuters) - It was after midnight in Lagos on Oct. 21 when Elisha Sunday said he got a call from his brother Victor's phone: a stranger told him Victor had been shot dead by soldiers at Lekki Toll Gate.

    The Sacramento Kings appear to have made a statement by firing an announcer who said, “all lives matter,” only to replace him by hiring someone who claimed that Donald Trump is a “white supremacist terrorist.” Back in June, Kings announcer Grant Napear was pressured to resign from his 30-year broadcasting job after stirring vitriol from the left because he said that “all lives matter.” Napear, who had been with the team since 1988, later explained that he was not aware that “all lives matter” was somehow considered racist. Napear also lost his job on KHTK radio over the incident. Still, it seems clear that the Kings are not averse to their broadcasters acting inappropriately in public. We know this because of who they hired to replace Napear.

    Given that its stories often involve mysteries that are unsolved or were improperly investigated and prosecuted, the true-crime genre routinely paints unflattering pictures of law enforcement and the criminal justice system. That’s absolutely the case with Trial 4, an eight-part Netflix docuseries (premiering Nov. 11) about Sean K. Ellis, who in 1993 was arrested at the age of 19 for the murder of Boston Police detective John Mulligan. Ellis was tried for that slaying three times in 1995, and following the first two mistrials, he was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. The problem being, as argued by Remy Burkel’s non-fiction effort (executive produced by The Staircase’s Jean-Xavier de Lestrade), he was an innocent man—and the victim of some very bad individuals. In the early morning hours of Sept. 26, 1993, detective Mulligan was shot five times in the face (including once directly up the nose) while sleeping in...

That sent Guilliams to the couple’s bedroom, where he grabbed a .45-caliber semi-automatic pistol and pointed the gun at Hanshew’s face...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Vice President Mike Pence stated that while 2020 Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden mouthed criticism of violence in the streets, “he very quickly criticized law enforcement. He described an unwarranted police shooting, while an investigation is still going on.” Pence said, “Yesterday, we heard Joe Biden kind of mouth words against violence in the streets, but then he very quickly criticized law enforcement. He described an unwarranted police shooting, while an investigation is still going on. He never mentioned Antifa. He never mentioned the radical left mobs that have been tearing asunder and setting fire to many of our major cities over the last three months. And I think that what the American people know, and they saw it today in Kenosha with President Trump’s visit there, is we have a president today, who is going to...
    Always seeking a new low, Donald Trump compared the police shooting of Jacob Blake to a missed golf putt in his interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham. Kenosha, Wisconsin, police shot Blake seven times in the back at close range as he tried to get into his car. To Trump, this shows that police “can do 10,000 great acts, which is what they do, and one bad apple―or a choker,” he said. “Y’know a choker. They choke.” And Donald Trump has one context for choking. ”Shooting the guy, shooting the guy in the back many times, I mean, couldn’t you have done something different? Couldn’t you have wrestled him? You know, I mean, in the meantime, he might’ve been going for a weapon and, you know, there’s a whole big thing there. But they choke. Just like in a golf tournament, they miss a three-foot putt.” Yes, shooting a man repeatedly...

Antifa is a loose collection of left-wing demonstrators whose scope and threat level is a matter of dispute. On Saturday, a caravan of hundreds of vehicles driven by people supporting President Donald Trump rolled through Portland, the city that has been the scene of protests almost nightly since the death of George Floyd on May 25. Trump has repeatedly excoriated the city and its leadership for the “lawlessness.” At about 8:45 p.m., after most of the Trump supporters had left, shots rang out, and people in the area fled the scene. When the dust had settled, Aaron Danielson, a supporter of the conservative group Patriot Prayer, was dead. A passer-by was able to capture footage of the incident, which can...
