Atlanta Police Officer Ambushed in Heart of the City

The despicable act was denounced harshly by Atlanta’s Mayor.

Over the course of the last several years, police departments across the country have been dealing with a rash of hateful and harmful actions pointed in their direction.

A great deal of this animosity has stemmed from high profile incidents of police brutality, including the deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, both of whom were killed during officer-involved incidents.

Now, in Atlanta, another ambush of a local police officer has left the already-strained department stinging.

The officer is stable and talking to his family, Atlanta Police Chief Rodney Bryant said in a news conference.

According to investigators, the shooting happened at the Solace on Peachtree apartments. The officers were responding to a call of a person shot inside an apartment.

The act was despicable in its premeditation.

“As soon as the elevator door opened they were met with gunfire, immediately,” Atlanta Deputy Police Chief Charles Hampton Jr. said. “Officers were able to return fire, and we believe that one suspect was fatally struck.”

The officer was carried downstairs and rushed to the hospital. The victim in the original shooting was also taken to a hospital and is stable.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms went so far as to call the attack an “ambush”, and remind the world that Atlanta police are often running into danger while others are running away.

Gunman Bricked to Death After Opening Fire on Forth Worth Party

You don’t mess with Texas.

Published

You know what they say:  Don’t mess with Texas. This is the sort of placed where the locals have no problem reminding you, and swiftly, that you’re not from around here.  They are fiercely independent Americans, and they enjoy their freedom in their own unique way. Texans always seem to get their way, and they certainly have been known to find a unique solution to their problems. This is as true as ever this week. A gunman who opened fire at a party early Monday in Texas, fatally shooting one person, died after attendees struck him with bricks, authorities said. The incident began around 1 a.m. in the backyard of a Fort Worth home when an attendee became angry and left, the police department said in a statement. The person, identified by a Fort Worth police spokesperson only as a man, returned with a second person and got into an argument with other partygoers. The man opened fire, striking one person and causing a non-life-threatening injury, the statement said. But then… When people at the party began chasing him, he opened fire and they threw landscaping bricks at him, the statement said. Two people were struck by gunfire, one of them fatally, police said. The second person was taken to a hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. The gunman was pronounced dead at the scene, and has yet to be publicly identified.

Swastika Found Engraved at State Department Draws Condemnation

The Secretary of State was LIVID.

There’s nothing funny about the Nazi regime, and everyone knows it, except for a certain breed of adolescent dolt who’s simply looking to appear edgy and dangerous as some hormonal ploy to attract a mate. These are the kids that would draw toothbrush mustaches on the faces in the magazines, or throw up a sig heil behind the teacher’s back for a laugh. But this phase almost always fades as the years climb on, and most of these young idiots looks back at themselves in a perpetual state of cringe. This leaves us to assume that anyone continuing to exude such Hitleresque nonsense into adulthood is doing so very purposefully, and not with the naïveté of their younger years. At the State Department, this reality is causing a bit of concern. A swastika carved into an elevator car has been discovered at the State Department in Washington—in a location within the building’s security perimeter. The elevator is close to the office of the special envoy charged with monitoring and opposing anti-semitism, Axios reports. Secretary of State Antony Blinken emailed all employees Tuesday about the discovery. Blinken was livid. “The hateful graffiti has been removed and this incident will be investigated,” he wrote. Blinken is the stepson of a Holocaust survivor, per the Washington Post, and has emphasized the threat of anti-semitism, which he wrote “isn’t a relic of the past.” Officials have said President Biden will nominate an ambassador-at-large to deal with the problem; the Jerusalem Post called for such a position in an editorial this month. Hate has been on the rise in America in recent years, as white supremacist groups continue to recruit and spread their message online, and then, often violently, in real life.
