How many mail carriers and meter readers have interacted with that dog over how many years?
Never mind, homeless owner, which means even MORE interaction with strangers. More info:

Woman fatally shot by Arlington officer had a dog who ‘was her soul,’ friend says

Small friendly dog, possibly even a puppy, possibly a beagle mix, easily handled by concerned citizens after "attacking" the cop.

"The dog, which authorities believe was grazed by a bullet, was treated by a veterinarian and impounded, police said."
Plain and simple - murder
It happened again :( :

Aside: It's easy to get caught in an endless series of bad cop, racism and Karen vids.

Shooting victim's husband says police detained him for hours

A man who survived the shooting that killed his wife at an Atlanta-area massage business last week said police detained him in handcuffs for four hours after the attack....

Gonzalez’s accusation would also mean that he remained detained after police released security video images of the suspected gunman and after authorities captured that suspect about 150 miles (240 kilometers) south of Atlanta. Gonzalez questioned whether his treatment by authorities was because he's Mexican....

Robert Aaron Long, a 21-year-old white man, is accused of shooting five people, including Gonzalez's wife Delaina Ashley Yaun, at the first crime scene near Woodstock, about 30 miles (50 kilometers) north of Atlanta. One man was wounded. In all, seven of the slain victims were women, six of them of Asian descent....

Gonzalez and Yaun, 33, had gotten a babysitter for their infant daughter and went to Youngs Asian Massage to relax. They were in separate rooms inside when the gunman opened fire.

Gonzalez heard the gunshots and worried about his wife but was too afraid to open the door, he told Mundo Hispanico in a video interview. Deputies arrived within minutes. Gonzalez said they put him in handcuffs and detained him for about four hours, according to the website....

“Only when they finally confirmed I was her husband, did they tell me that she was dead," he said. "I wanted to know earlier.”

Left alone to raise their daughter and his wife's teenage son, Gonzalez said the shooter took “the most important thing I have in my life." ...
He heard his wife die and could have easily himself been a victim, then this :x . I’d love to see some cops get fired and charged, and Gonzalez get compensated, but probably none of that will happen in Cherokee County, GA.

Chinese Grandma Who Fought Off Attacker to Donate Over $900K from GoFundMe to AAPI Community

... “Combat racism”: In the latest update on Xie’s GoFundMe, Xie, her husband and the family came to the decision to donate all the funds “back to the Asian American community to combat racism.”

Xie insisted repeatedly on the decision, as her grandson and GoFundMe’s organizer, John Chen, stated she believes “the issue is bigger than her.”

... Chen added, “She said we must not [submit] to racism and we must fight to the death if necessary.”

It has raised over $897,000 of its $50,000 goal as of this writing.

Giving back: Throughout the year, there have been a few instances of elders who were the target of attacks and refused or returned donations.

In February 2020, an elderly Chinese man who was robbed and assaulted on the street while collecting recyclables in the Bayview neighborhood refused any help.

On July 17, 2020, an 89-year-old woman who was set on fire in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, and ignited the #TheyCan’tBurnUsAll movement, thanked everyone who contributed to the GoFundMe but returned all the funds.

Virginia becomes 1st Southern state to abolish death penalty as governor signs new law

... While Virginia has now become the first state of the former Confederacy to ban the death penalty, it is the 23rd state to ban it, following Colorado last year. Neighboring Maryland, which the Census Bureau classifies as a Southern state, abolished the death penalty in 2013....

Northam, who ran for governor on a campaign promise to abolish the death penalty, spoke of the inequity of its use in Virginia.

“When one looks at the history, close to 1,400 individuals have been executed,” he said. “The great majority of those individuals were African American. And so that number was disproportionate. The fence, the representation of African Americans has no doubt been disproportionate.”

According to data compiled by the Death Penalty Information Center, Virginia has imposed capital punishment since the Colonial times and ahead of the rest of the country, with the commonwealth having executed a higher percentage of death row inmates than any other state in the modern era of capital punishment.

A total of 1,390 people have been put to death in Virginia, with the first documented instance being a spy for Spain executed in the Jamestown colony in 1608. Since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976, Virginia has executed 113 people total. But no jury in the state has handed down a death sentence since 2011 and no one has been executed since 2017.

The last execution to take place at the Greensville Correctional Center was of Robert Gleason, a convicted murderer who was put to death in 2013....

He said he’d like to see all states in the country abolish the death penalty in his lifetime. “I just think it's the right thing to do.”
:clap:
LaKeisha Cook, of the Virginia Interfaith Center for Public Policy, said in a statement that the state's legacy on the death penalty was so closely connected to its history of slavery and lynching.

"Now that it is coming to an end, we can start a new chapter that embraces an evidence-based approach to public safety: One that values the dignity of all human beings and is focused on transforming the justice system into one rooted in fairness, accountability, and redemption," she said.
Dreamer, but it is the goal even if we don't think we'll ever get there.

Los Angeles-area woman and dog fatally stabbed, suspect knocked out with rock

Tragic about the woman and her dog, but:
... The man who fled the suspect earlier spotted the attack on the woman and used a rock to knock him unconscious.

"He, at that point, got out of his vehicle, found a rock, threw the rock, hit the suspect in the face, knocked him out and right shortly after that the authorities arrived," one witness told KCBS-TV.

... He was taken to a hospital to be treated for head injuries. He is being held on $2 million bond. A motive for the attack has not been determined.
Nice toss.

... Christian was fatally shot by police officers (PA troopers) responding to a call of a distraught man on the bridge at the Route 33 southbound overpass over I-80 in Hamilton Township in Pennsylvania on Dec. 30, Pennlive reported.

Following his death at a hospital, authorities released a statement saying Christian was in possession of a firearm. He complied after officers ordered him to drop the weapon, but allegedly became uncooperative. They stated he retrieved the gun from the ground and pointed it in the officers’ direction, causing them to fire at him....
Very sad, but if he pointed a gun at the police . . .

Chester SC ex-sheriff charged in ‘man cave ... party barn’ case goes to trial on Monday

The trial of former Chester County Sheriff Alex “Big A” Underwood on public corruption charges is set to begin Monday morning at the federal courthouse in downtown Columbia.

Underwood and two of his former top deputies, Lt. Johnny Ricardo Neal Jr. and Chief Deputy Robert Sprouse, are alleged to have been part of a conspiracy in which they illegally used their positions for private gain, according to an indictment in the case....

In all, Underwood faces 17 charges; Sprouse, 14; and Neal, 12, according to court records.

The federal sentences for those charges range from one year to 20 years per count if convicted, according to federal records.

In the last 10 years, numerous S.C. sheriffs have run afoul of the law. Each has been forced out of office. Sheriffs are elected officials and, once in office, have few checks on their power.

... Lee County Sheriff E. J. Melvin ...

... Saluda County Sheriff Jason Booth ...

... Abbeville County Sheriff Charles Goodwin ...

... Chesterfield County Sheriff Sam Parker ...

... Lexington County Sheriff Jimmy Metts ...

... Williamsburg County Sheriff Michael Johnson ...

... Greenville County (Whack9's hood) Sheriff Will Lewis ...

... Florence County Sheriff Kenney Boone ...

... Colleton County Sheriff Andy Strickland ...
Wow, what part of 'illegal' do these SC cops not understand?

Judge rules for Black Buffalo police officer fired for stopping colleague's chokehold

A New York court on Tuesday reinstated the pension of former Buffalo police officer Cariol Horne, who was fired for intervening when a white colleague had a Black man in a chokehold during a 2006 arrest.

Driving the news: State Supreme Court Judge Dennis Ward noted in his ruling similar cases, like the death of George Floyd. Ward said the role of other officers at the scene in such instances had come under scrutiny, "particularly their complicity in failing to intervene to save the life of a person to whom such unreasonable physical force is being applied."



"To her credit, Officer Horne did not merely stand by, but instead sought to intervene, despite the penalty she ultimately paid for doing so ... She saved a life that day, and history will now record her for the hero she is."

Judge Ward

Ward partially based his decision to overturn a 2010 ruling that upheld her firing on legislation signed by Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown in October, known as "Cariol's Law" — which makes it a "crime for a law enforcement officer to fail to intervene when another officer is using excessive force and also protects whistleblowers," per the Buffalo News.

The big picture: Horne, who is Black, said she heard the handcuffed man say he couldn't breathe — invoking the deaths in police custody of Floyd and Eric Garner, two Black men who uttered this in their dying words, which have become a "national rallying cry against police brutality," the New York Times notes.

She said her fellow officer punched her in the face when she tried to stop him.

The Buffalo Police Department claimed she had put her fellow officers at risk and she was fired in 2008, per NPR....

Officer wounded in school wasn't shot by student's gun

A Tennessee police officer wounded during a confrontation with a student inside a high school bathroom was not shot by the student's gun, authorities said Wednesday, contradicting earlier law enforcement reports that the teenager fired and hit the officer.

The new report appears to indicate that the officer was shot by police during a struggle.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation released updated details of a shooting at Austin-East Magnet High School in Knoxville on Monday that left the student dead and a school resource officer wounded. The student was identified Wednesday as Anthony J. Thompson, Jr., 17....

So if Chauvin's lawyer had put him up to testify in his own defence, it would have been pretty much a desperate attempt to de-demonize him, and probably wouldn't have worked anyway. Nobody would have been surprised if he didn't testify. Most criminal defendants with any chance of an acquittal do not. But legal genius Chauvin decided to join all the others who are stepping on his dick and step on his own dick by declaring he's not testifying by taking the Fifth. He's declining to testify since he's protected against self-incrimination. "Well, Judge, I certainly didn't do anything wrong, much less criminal, but if I get on the stand I'll probably say I did."

I wondered about that, too - Why even mention the Fifth (several times) rather than just rest without calling him? Maybe their Hail Mary is an "ineffective counsel" appeal.

Chauvin would have been totally crucified on the stand. I wasn't a litigator and don't know much about criminal law, but I could have demolished his ass. I'd make him account for every one of those 9 and a half minutes. "... the suspect was face down on the concrete, with his hands cuffed. There were four other offices surrounding. After two minutes, did you believe he was going to escape? OK, he lay there for another (and another)... minute. Did you still believe he was going to escape? Did you hear him say he couldn't breathe? What if anything did you do? Why? Why not?... on and on. You could give Chauvin the catch, the tackle, the initial hold and still hammer him into oblivion for the last 7 minutes.

I don't think his fifth amendment invocation was in front of the jury, his lawyer should be fired for incompetence if it was.

The prosecution would also be drooling with an opportunity to try and get the eighteen other complaints against him in front of the jury.
