An East Texas woman is in custody after stealing a police car while handcuffed and then leading officers on a chase that reached nearly 100 mph before she crashed. Police say 33-year-old Toscha Sponsler of Lufkin had been detained for shoplifting and was in the back of a police car when she managed to get out of one of the cuffs, squeeze through a partition, crawl into the front seat and take off. She’s now jailed on multiple charges.


Police released video Wednesday showing a man swinging a baseball bat at a police officer before being fatally shot outside a federal courthouse in southern Indiana. Evansville police released security camera video showing 55-year-old Ricky Ard smashing two of the courthouse’s front door windows Tuesday morning, along with video from an officer’s body camera. The videos show at least two courthouse security officers drawing guns but not following Ard as he stayed outside the building and walked away. Other angles show him starting back toward the building after a city police officer arrived. That officer, identified as 11-year police force veteran Kenny Duschke, yelled at Ard and tried to hit him with a stun gun before the man charged at the officer with the bat. The video shows the officer backpedaling and firing about a half-dozen shots. Evansville police spokesman Sgt. Jason Cullum said during a news conference that Duschke appears to have acted appropriately to defend himself.

“When he made the decision to chase after the officer and attempt to strike him with a deadly weapon, unfortunately, he created a situation that led to his own death,” Cullum said. Cullum said Ard had visited the Winfield K. Denton Federal Building on Monday and expressed “concerns about the government.” The building includes federal court offices and other federal agencies. Cullum declined Wednesday to discuss Ard’s complaints. Ard returned about 11:20 a.m. Tuesday to the courthouse in the city along the Ohio River, according to police. Cullum said a courthouse security officer also shot at Ard, but videos didn’t clearly show when that happened. One of the security officers told Duschke to use a stun gun on Ard, but it was “ineffective,” Cullum said. “We know that one of the probes did make impact because as he ran after the officer you can actually see the Taser dragging on the ground behind him, because the probe was either in his clothes or in his person and the wires were still attached to the Taser,” he said.


A Cobb County police lieutenant has been moved to administrative duty for making what the department deemed were “inappropriate racial comments” during a traffic stop. The footage shows a white female driver pulled over during a DUI traffic stop telling Abbott that she was scared to move her hands in order to get her cellphone because “I’ve just seen way too many videos of cops … ” At that point, she is cut off by the officer. “But you’re not black. Remember, we only kill black people”. Abbott will remain on administrative duty pending the outcome of the investigation

This is a clip from an interaction I had with a man on 8/16/17 who claimed to be with the King County Sheriffs Department.

After discussing with several attorneys I have decided to file a complaint with the King County Sheriffs Department, Office of the Ombudsman, Office of Law Enforcement Oversight, and release this video in an effort to bring additional awareness to the actions of those who are charged with our protection.

I am still conducting an independent investigation and will make a follow-up video once it concludes.

I want to thank the Law Enforcement Officers who have reached out to me with support, it’s very assuring to know that so many of you agree with the inappropriateness of this interaction.

I’d also like to thank Sheriff John Urquhart for coming out against this behavior without hesitation.

Chicago police Officer Marco Proano claimed he was just doing his job when he fired 16 shots at a stolen car filled with teenagers on the South Side, wounding two.

But a federal jury decided Monday that the shooting — captured on a police dashboard camera video — wasn’t the action of a cop but a criminal.

In an unprecedented verdict, the jury deliberated about four hours before convicting Proano of two felony counts of using excessive force in violating the victims’ civil rights. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison on each count but likely will get far less because he has no prior criminal history.

Dressed in a dark gray suit and glasses, the 11-year veteran kept his hands clasped in front of him on the defense table and showed no emotion as the verdict was announced in U.S. District Judge Gary Feinerman’s hushed courtroom.

Feinerman scheduled sentencing for Nov. 20. But federal prosecutors indicated they will seek next week to detain Proano as a danger to the community.

Proano is the first Chicago cop in memory to be convicted in federal court of criminal charges stemming from an on-duty shooting. He also was the first officer to go to trial in any shooting case since the court-ordered release of the Laquan McDonald shooting video in November 2015 sparked heated protests, political turmoil and promises of systemic change from Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Earlier this year, a U.S. Department of Justice investigation found the Police Department’s use-of-force training was woefully lacking, part of a systemic failure that led to the routine abuse of citizens’ civil rights.


Authorities in North Carolina released police dash cam footage showing two officers fatally shooting an armed woman who initially fired her gun at them last month. The video is a recording of an incident that took place on Interstate 40 on the morning of July 8 near Newton Grove, North Carolina. In the footage, an officer pulls over off the highway where he sees a woman, 50-year-old Tina Renee Medlin, lying face down on the grass in front of a crashed vehicle. Medlin is shot after she pulled her gun and fired on two officers who approached her.


A new body camera video that appears to show “questionable activity” by a Baltimore police officer has come to light, the Baltimore State’s Attorney’s Office announced Monday — the third body cam video to emerge this month that has raised concerns about possible police misconduct.

At least 43 cases involving the officers in the latest video will be dismissed as a result of this body cam footage, State Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby’s office said in a statement. Mosby’s office is also investigating whether any of the officers involved are material witnesses in any other ongoing cases where their testimony is essential to prosecution.

Liberals are known for attempting to stage false flag event in order to promote the stripping away of more freedoms, and Charlottesville’s fake “white supremacist” rally that was actually created by a two-time Obama voter who also openly admitted he hates Republicans numerous times on his Facebook page, was absolutely no different!

Even after we found out that the event was actually created by a two-time Obama voter, who is a devout liberal who spent the last several years of his life openly boasting about hating Republicans, we now also know that the ACLU that defended him and is controlled by George Soros also spent tens of thousands of dollars busing in fake KKK protesters wearing Donald Trump merchandise.

Listen as this man explains how numerous people saw Antifa, black lives matter, and KKK members getting off the bus altogether before violence occurred at the rally at the hands of a man who was attacked while sitting in his car by a black lives matter protester.

Police have already stated that they do not believe this was an intentional attack and only occurred after the man’s car was smashed by a bat wielding black lives matter protester.

The lying liberal media, on the other hand, has completely different stories that refuse to acknowledge any of the truths that are easily accessible if they simply looked.


Video shows a violent struggle between a 25-year-old man and a Euclid officer in the middle of East 228th Street in Ohio. Richard Hubbard was reportedly ordered out of the car told to face away from the police as he was taken into custody. Police say that Hubbard ignored that order and began to physically resist as the officer took him into custody. The Officer then began to physically beat Hubbard. The police officer is now on paid leave. Submitted By Debbie Wilson Booth.


The black jeep had slammed into a parked saloon in a quiet suburban street, just beside a house having a yard sale. Inside were two middle-aged people who looked like corpses.

Their eyes were closed, their mouths wide open, their bodies slumped together in a deathly embrace. The man’s head was tilted backward while the woman at the wheel lay across his shoulder. A syringe lay between her legs, and another was on the dashboard.

It was a grotesque scene. A couple of drug addicts so desperate to get their fix that they had injected right outside their dealer’s house – and were then hit instantly by the effects of deadly new synthetic opioid many times more powerful than heroin that is flooding the streets of America.

The police swung into action. Such scenes are wearily familiar in the country’s overdose capital. ‘C’mon girl,’ said one officer as he syringed Narcan – a drug that counters opioids – into the slumped woman’s nose. ‘Here she comes. Wake up, little Suzy.’

One estimate predicts 650,000 Americans will die after taking these drugs in a decade – more than the population of central Manchester.

Last week President Donald Trump bowed to pressure and declared a national emergency, ensuring extra resources on the front line.

Montgomery County in Ohio, which includes Dayton, is currently thought to have highest rates of deadly overdoses in America.

It is expecting 800 drug deaths this year – more than triple its 2015 tally. The 420 already logged easily exceeds last year’s total.

Fatalities include an airline pilot and his wife, babies who have simply touched the drugs, infants given them by addicts, teenagers and students, parents and pensioners.

Dealers have also died from toxic inhalation while chopping up supplies. And three nurses had to be given Narcan after losing consciousness when treating an overdose patient on Thursday,

A police officer rescued five children who were left in a hotel room surrounded by needles and drugs.

An arrest warrant Channel 2’s Ross Cavitt obtained said police responded after a call of a disturbance at an Extended Stay hotel on the 2000 block of Roswell Road in Marietta.

Police said they knocked on the door and were let in on Monday at 12:13 a.m.

Police found a couple, Sanchez Torone Lampkin and Tiffany Nicole Mathis, and five children in the small room, which was “in complete disarray.”


Video has emerged of a California traffic cop pointing his gun at a driver and a passenger for nearly 10 minutes. According to the Campbell Police Department, the motorcycle cop saw a car on July 26 driving in the far-right lane of a freeway at 85mph and stopped the vehicle ‘out of safety concerns’. He allegedly told the occupants why he stopped them and asked to see documentation. When the passenger reached under his seat, the ‘unexpected movement’ prompted the officer to draw his gun in a clip filmed by the female driver. Police say the officer had his weapon drawn for so long was because rush hour traffic delayed backup from arriving and the exchange ended civilly. Some viewers defended the Campbell officer. Others questioned whether he needed to draw his gun, and why he held it in a way that appeared to obscure his body camera.


A newly filed federal lawsuit has claimed Cheatham County Sheriff’s Deputies used excessive force on an 18-year-old in custody in 2016.

Dozens of cases have been dropped and over 100 are being reviewed after body cam footage out of Baltimore was purported to show an officer planting evidence at the scene of an alleged crime. Baltimore’s state’s attorney announced the dismissals of 34 drug and firearms cases. All the cases that have been or will be dismissed are those that relied solely on the credibility of the officers in question

Mississippi: When Southaven police showed up at the house on Surrey Drive, they were following up on a domestic violence call. But what went down when they got there ended with 41-year old Ismael Lopez dead.

Lopez and his wife were the only ones home. She doesn’t speak English, but she said through an interpreter that her husband went to the door after hearing the dog barking and looking outside the window seeing police cars.

“They started pounding on the door and as far as she knows when he opened the door, they started shooting. She didn’t see it, but she is just repeating as much as she knows,” says Rami Desantiago, a family friend.

Investigators tell a different story, saying the suspect had a gun and they told him to drop if before opening fire. A gun was recovered at the house.

Bullet holes left in the house and even bullets hitting Lopez’s dog indicate several shots were fired.

“My sister told me it was the police that killed him. I can’t believe it. He was a really good person,” says family friend Juan Castillo.

Southaven Police are referring all questions to the district attorney. The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is handling the case.

Lopez’s family says police told them they were at the house following up on a call from Tate County, where a woman told officers she had been beaten and the person responsible was at the address on Surrey.
