A veteran Arizona police officer is expected to survive after he was shot multiple times while making a traffic stop Wednesday morning.

The Phoenix Police Department tweeted that the unidentified officer, who is an eight-year veteran of the force, was likely to survive “thanks to his vest.”

“The officer is at the hospital, thank goodness he’s going to be fine,” Police Chief Joseph Yahner told KTAR. “Thank goodness he was wearing his vest. He was shot multiple times, he has some significant injuries.”

Police are searching for two suspects who fled the scene after the shooting, according to FOX10. One of the suspects is described as a Caucasian, heavy-set male. Police have reportedly located the vehicle, but not the people who were inside.

This one occurred not far from our Destin Counselor, Weskie. pinched-n-pasted from the dot  I am a gay twerker that has no balls!!!!  I also have no idea how to use the quote function to post stories, so I annoy the piss out of others.  I like male genatalia in and around my mouth. over at foxnews 


A veteran Florida sheriff’s deputy who was shot and killed Tuesday while serving a domestic violence restraining order had come out of retirement to earn extra money for trips to Disney World with his young granddaughter.

Oklaloosa County Deputy Bill Myers, 64, was shot multiple times in the head and in the back before the suspect died after a confrontation with police.

"He had an ability to make those around him smile, especially his young granddaughter who he adored and took to Disney World as often as he could," Okaloosa County Sheriff Larry Ashley said, fighting tears during a news conference late Tuesday.

Myers was a 25-year department veteran. He had retired in 2013, but returned to work in January, Ashley said.

"He was a part of our family. We are a family here," Ashley said.

Okaloosa County Sheriff Larry Ashley called the man a “sick little coward,” according to the Pensacola News Journal.


Joel Dixon Smith, 33, was being served a domestic violence restraining order at the lawyer’s office just blocks from the sheriff’s office. He was supposed to be turning over his weapons to Myers when he pulled out a concealed weapon and shot the deputy multiple times, authorities said.

Smith fled in his vehicle to a Comfort Suites hotel about 10 miles away in Niceville, where he had previously booked a room. He barricaded himself in the room until authorities fired tear gas into his room. He charged out firing and was shot and killed by deputies, Ashley said.

No one else was hurt.

Myers is the fourth county deputy who’s been killed since 2008, according to the News Journal.

Smith had been arrested in 2008 for domestic battery. The restraining order was meant to protect Smith’s wife.

Smith was a rural Postal Service carrier, beginning in Niceville in 2013, the agency said in a statement.

Annie Allen works at an awning business next to the law firm. Allen said she and her boss, store owner David Wray, were starting their day when as many as eight gunshots rang out.

"We heard 'pop, pop, pop,'" she said.

Allen called 911, and Wray went to check things out.

Wray said he thought a nearby store had been robbed. Once he saw Myers’ police car he ran over to tell the deputy about what he heard, but instead saw Myers bleeding.

Wray said he was stooped over Myers when a well-dressed man walked out of the law office. Wray said he asked if anyone had called 911, but the man just continued to his truck. That's when another woman screamed that the man was the shooter.

"It was like I was in a movie," Wray said. "I just couldn't believe any of it."

Wray said he used his phone to take photos of the fleeing truck before trying to follow it in his own vehicle.

"I thought I'd chase him, but there was a lot of traffic," Wray said. "I'm not James Bond. I didn't want to get anybody hurt, so I went back."

At the scene of the shooting, Wray said he and another man tried to talk to the deputy, but he didn't respond.

"It was the saddest thing I'd ever seen," Wray said. "I cradled his head for a while. He was bleeding profusely."

At the Comfort Suites, guest David Bump of Ozark, Alabama, said he awoke Tuesday to deputies pounding at his room.

"I opened the door and they had their guns drawn," he said.

Bump said officers took him and other guests across the street, where they spent hours watching the standoff.

"When they brought the guy out, he was on a gurney with his face covered," said Bump, who was working in the area on a construction crew.

Deputy Myers was white. Smith listed himself as Native American on one voter registration and white on a more recent one.

Has nothing to do with cops getting snuffed out, but I read a piece this morning about a guy going on trial in Gadsden for killing a 1 year old with a sword, or blade of some sort.  They said he killed the child as part of some sort of ritual.  Any of you Northeast Alabama fuzz involved in this case?  I hope and pray that if you were, you made sure the suspect was treated with all the respect due the murderer of a toddler.

Don't know if any of you have seen this but let me set it up for you if you have not.  Arkansas game and fish officer (sworn peace officer) is sitting on the interstate waiting to assist another agency on a high speed pursuit.  He then decided to meet them half way.  The best part of this video is the reaction of the suspect.  Enjoy

FOREST ACRES, S.C. –  A police officer responding to a report of a suspicious person was fatally shot at a suburban South Carolina mall on Wednesday, and police say a suspect is in custody.

The incident began when the report came in just before 8 a.m., Forest Acres police Chief Gene Sealy told reporters. Two officers responded and attempted to talk to the person, who fled on foot and ran through parts of Richland Mall, including the Barnes and Noble bookstore, officials said.

Officer Greg Alia confronted the person, there was a struggle, and he was shot, Sealy said.

He was taken to a hospital and later died, officials said. No other injuries were reported.

Sealy said a suspect is in custody and is being questioned. Sealy described the man as being armed with a handgun and a knife at the mall. Police did not detail any charges against the man and did not take questions at their news conference.

Sealy said Alia was 32 years old and a seven-year veteran of the department. He and his wife, Kassy, recently had a baby, Sealy said.


"We hope everybody prays for Greg's family," Sealy said. "They will need strength."

Hours after the shooting, most of the mall — anchored by a department store, the bookstore and a theater complex — was closed. Traffic flowed and the parking garage was open, but the main entrance was closed by yellow crime scene tape. Customers pulled in and out of a gas station on the corner. A nearby high school was locked down briefly.

Forest Acres is a residential town virtually surrounded by Columbia. Sealy described it as "a small community, a small police department, but one big family."

A small Minnesota town was mourning the loss of a local sheriff's deputy who was killed early Sunday when an injured suspect grabbed the deputy's gun and killed him.

KMSP reported that 60-year-old Steven Martin Sandberg of the Aitkin County Sheriff's Department was born, raised and lived in the town of Aitkin, a town of just over 2,000 people 125 miles north of Minneapolis.

"His family's been neighbors of ours for years,” Richard and Marilyn Hesch, who also went to church with Sandberg, told the station. "It's going to be a tough one, especially for a small community like this."

Investigators are still trying to determine what led up to Sandberg's shooting by 50-year-old Danny Leroy Hammond. Drew Evans, superintendent of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, said Hammond and Sandberg got into a struggle in Hammond's room at St. Cloud Hospital. Evans said Hammond was not handcuffed at the time.

Just two days after a career criminal allegedly gunned down NYPD officer Randolph Holder in East Harlem, and with his fellow cops still mourning, anti-police activists took to Times Square on Thursday to protest “police terror and murder.”

Holder’s murder on Tuesday night made him the fourth NYPD officer to die in the line of duty in the last year, which has also seen anti-police groups call for killing police. But the demonstrators who carried signs at 47th street and Broadway decrying “victims of police murder” seemed oblivious to the trauma felt throughout the city after Holder, an African-American and second-generation police officer, was killed trying to protect New Yorkers..

"People have had enough of the anti-cop protest, and it's time these people go get a job and find a different agenda," Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins told FoxNews.com. "It's just the arrogance of the whole thing. This is a naysayer group. If there's a bit of intelligence put into any of this, they'd realize all their facts are incorrect."

Qiara Butler was at Thursday's Times Square rally holding a sign bearing the picture of her cousin Tyrone West. An autopsy determined West died of a heart condition that was exacerbated during an incident with Baltimore police in July 2013. Butler said she didn’t think the timing of the protest, which was planned before Holder’s murder, was an issue.

“Everyone out here is protesting for their family, so we’re in a constant state of mourning,” Butler told FoxNews.com. “We’ve been mourning since July 18th [2013] and no one ever stopped their daily routine for our mourning. So we deserve our time to mourn with the other families as well.”

Given the prevalence of “Black Lives Matter” signs at the event, including on one large, yellow cloth held by members of the so-called Granny Peace Brigade, Butler was asked if the life of Holder, who was black, also mattered.

“I would hope that his family realizes that his life is included in that ‘Black Lives Matter’ slogan,” she said. “We’re talking about black bodies being persecuted across the world.”

Though some of the demonstrators spoke of a more inclusive message, their regalia and posters told a different story.

One display featured a picture of Michael Brown next to a mocked-up “wanted poster” for Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Miss. police officer who shot Brown during an altercation in August 2014. Elsewhere, a man carried a black flag with the “anarchy” symbol drawn on it. Two small groups of police officers stood apart from the crowd and looked on as one man leaned into a microphone and called for “the whole justice system to be dismantled.”

“Nobody’s here saying anything bad about cops – we’re here talking about killer cops, holding killer cops responsible,” said Tawanda Jones, Tyrone West’s sister.

The three-day “National March to STOP Police Terror” on Thursday, Friday and Saturday is set to have events in numerous city spots, among them Washington Square Park and Bryant Park in Manhattan and a march to Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn later Thursday. The event was “initiated” by activists Dr. Cornel West and Carl Dix, a self-described revolutionary. Several high-profile “selected endorsers” for the event include former Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers, actors Ed Asner and Mark Ruffalo and singer Harry Belafonte.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. –  A rural Kentucky school district has canceled classes for a second straight day as authorities search for a fugitive accused of shooting at law officers in two states.

Cumberland County schools Superintendent Kirk Biggerstaff said Tuesday he doesn't want student waiting for buses in sparsely-populated areas while Floyd Ray Cook is still at large.

The 62-year-old Cook is believed to be on foot after a Saturday shootout with a Kentucky state police trooper. Cook was last seen in the hilly, wooded countryside in Cumberland County, which borders Tennessee.

Cook is charged with attempted first-degree murder in Tennessee for allegedly shooting and wounding a police officer Saturday. Authorities say the officer's life was saved by his bulletproof vest.

Cook is accused of opening fire later Saturday at the Kentucky trooper, who wasn't wounded.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. –  An Albuquerque police officer shot during a traffic stop last week has died, Albuquerque police said Thursday.

Chief Gorden Eden, Jr. said in a statement that Officer Daniel Webster died at 2:30 a.m. Thursday. He had served on the police force for nearly nine years.

Webster suffered gunshot wounds to his upper body and jaw on the night of Oct. 21 after Davon Lymon, 34, opened fire outside a pharmacy and fled, police said.

Lymon's lengthy criminal history and those of men charged in other recent high-profile cases in New Mexico have led to widespread criticism from law enforcement officials. They are calling on the Legislature to enact sentencing reforms, and increase resources for police and prosecutors in high-crime areas.

In the days following the shooting, Eden described Webster as a high-performing, highly decorated officer who had recently left a detective post to patrol the streets as the force faced an officer shortage.

He underwent multiple surgeries, police said.


Webster had pulled over Lymon for riding a motorcycle with a stolen license plate, and when they found Lymon, he was hiding in a shed with a handcuff on his left wrist. The suspect was hospitalized for injuries he suffered when he was apprehended by a police dog.

Authorities also said a .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol was found in a vacant lot where Lymon headed after the shooting.

Lymon is in federal custody and faces one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to court records. A judge has ordered he remain jailed pending trial.

Lymon's prior criminal record in New Mexico includes voluntary manslaughter and aggravated battery charges from 2001. He pleaded guilty to charges in that case, and to fraud and forgery charges from the year before. He also faced aggravated battery and kidnapping charges last year that were dismissed, court records show.

A central Kentucky police officer died early Friday after he was shot in the head by a career criminal who vowed he was "not going back" to prison, investigators say.

Richmond Police Officer Daniel Ellis, 33, was shot Wednesday while searching an apartment for the robbery suspect, according to authorities. The officer died at the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington.

Authorities said Ellis and another officer went to an apartment in search of a man who tried to mug a woman in the parking lot of a downtown gas station.

While there, police said the suspect, Raleigh Sizemore Jr., 34, shot Ellis in the head. The second officer returned fire and struck Sizemore, who was treated at the hospital and released to police custody.

Sizemore was charged with attempted murder of a police officer and unlawful imprisonment first degree.


Two others in the apartment during the shootout were also arrested: Gregory Ratliff, 25, was charged with complicity to commit murder, and Rita Creech, 44, was booked with robbery in the first degree.

A police report detailing the incident said Sizemore allegedly told Ratliff moments before the shooting that he had spent “half his life in prison and (was) not going back.”

Sizemore also allegedly told Ratliff to “not to let them in or he would shoot him,” the police report said, according to USA Today.

Sizemore then led Creech into a bedroom in the back of the apartment with a gun in his hand and Ratliff let Ellis in, allowing Ellis to search the apartment but claimed no one else was there and there were no weapons inside, the report said.

The report alleges that Sizemore opened fire on Ellis “as soon as he began to cross the threshold of the bedroom door.”

All three suspects are being held at the Madison County Detention Center.

"It's just heartbreaking," Richmond Mayor Jim Barnes told The Associated Press. "It's an emotional time for everyone in the community. Those guys work so hard to protect the city."

Ellis, a seven-year veteran of the force, had remained in the hospital after suffering life-threatening injuries following the Wednesday shooting.

Barnes said people in Richmond, which has a population of about 32,000 people, had already been talking about raising money for Ellis' family while he was in the hospital. Barnes said he is also concerned with how to better protect Ellis' colleagues who are still on the police department.

“He was always in a good mood, always had a smile on his face,” Richmond Police Maj. Steve Gregg said earlier this week, according to USA Today. “He was always eager to help his fellow officers. Police work is like a big brotherhood. And he was like everybody’s brother.”

Gregg said Ellis was on track to be promoted to detective early next year. The Officer Down Memorial Page, which describes itself as a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring America's fallen law enforcement heroes, said Ellis is the 106th officer to die in the line of duty this year and the fifth in Kentucky

This one happened right here in Columbus this week. And they have the body cam to show it all in the link.

http://www.ledger-enquirer.com/news/local/crime/article43267758.html

Evil cops I tell ya! And the kicker? unemployed woman holding baby in the middle of it all.  :facepalm:

Quote
Towon Obryan Earl of Columbus wounded three Columbus police officers before an officer shot him on 28th Street, according to today's testimony in Recorder's Court.

Earl, a 29-year-old with a history of run-ins with the law, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to three counts of aggravated assault on a police officer. After appearing in Columbus Recorder’s Court in a wheelchair, he was sent back to the Muscogee County Jail under bonds totaling $300,000, and the case was bound over to Superior Court.

Towon Obryan Earl Muscogee County Jail

Georgia Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Deanna Jury said Columbus police were in a well-known drug area in the 300 block of 28th Street Tuesday morning when they noticed a vehicle stopped in the roadway with someone “leaning into the car.”

The driver, identified as Earl, backed into the parking lot nearby whenever he spotted police in the area, Jury said.

The agent said Officer Ryan Vardman approached the vehicle and spoke to Earl. The officer was standing behind the open driver’s door when the defendant attempted to flee, she said.

According to the agent, Earl backed up and struck Officer Michael Aguilar with the bumper of his vehicle. The driver’s door struck Vardman, and the officer jumped into the moving vehicle to avoid getting run over, she added. Unable to get completely inside of the vehicle, Vardman grabbed onto the car.

Authorities said Earl pulled forward and the driver’s door struck Cpl. Dean Spata. The impact pushed Vardman further into the vehicle. He tried to pull himself all the way into the vehicle but wasn’t successful, officials said.

The driver dragged Vardman along the ground before striking an undercover police vehicle and an apartment, officials said.

Officer Raymond Harralson, a five-year veteran, shot Earl in the right leg after police said he witnessed Earl reach for a visible gun.

Chief Ricky Boren said a gun was recovered Tuesday.

Harralson has been placed on administrative leave with pay while the incident is being investigated by the GBI and the CPD Office of Professional Standards, according to a release from Columbus police.

At least two officers on the scene, including Vardman, were wearing a body camera during the incident.

According to Jury’s testimony, Earl told officials that he tried to flee the area because he didn’t want to go to jail for driving without a license.

In court, Earl denied dragging Vardman, saying the officer was completely inside of the vehicle at the time of the shooting.

Earl, who was wanted on multiple warrants, also faces one count each of possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute, theft by receiving stolen property in another state, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, theft by receiving stolen property and reckless conduct. He is set to face those charges in Recorder’s Court at 8 a.m. today
