Chicago Leaders Brace Public for Release of Difficult Police-Shooting Video

The Windy City could turn ugly in the coming days.

There is no denying a major tension among the American people at the moment, as we are confronted again with a question as to how best keep our faith in the law enforcement system.

This week, the continuing trial of the police officer who knelt on George Floyd’s neck as he died has had much of this nation reliving some of the emotions of when that story first surfaced last year.  Then, just 4 days ago, another killing of an unarmed black man occurred just miles away from where the trial was taking place, reigniting the angst of last summer’s protest and riots anew.

Now, in Chicago, local leaders are suggesting that the public brace themselves for the release of a video that depicts a thirteen year old boy being shot and killed by police.

Chicago bodycam footage that captured the fatal police shooting of Adam Toledo, 13, will be released on Thursday, according to the Civilian Office of Police Accountability.

The materials related to Toledo’s March 29 shooting death will include footage from body-worn cameras, third-party video and other recordings, COPA said Wednesday in a news release.

Toledo died of a gunshot wound to his chest, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office. Officers responded to an area on Chicago’s West Side after learning that gunshots were detected by police-operated technology. Toledo and a 21-year-old man fled on foot when confronted by police and an officer shot the teen once, authorities said. The department described it as an armed confrontation.

Chicago is a city with a long history of violent gun crime, the frequency of which has been largely traced back to a 1982 handgun ban, (rescinded after thirty some years), that allowed criminals to flourish as the good samaritans of the Windy City were lawfully disarmed.

Famous Bounty Hunter Joins Search for Brian Laundrie in Florida

Laundrie has been evading police for days on end.

Published

on

The most wanted man in America may be hiding out in a Florida nature reserve, and police have spent several days scouring the vast wilderness looking for clues.

Brian Laundrie, a person of interest in the death of his fiancée Gabby Petito, disappeared from his parents’ home in North Port, Florida last week with no cell phone and no wallet.  The story was that he would be doing some hiking in the Carlton Reserve, but given the situation regarding Petito’s death, there is little doubt that Laundrie’s disappearance was purposeful.

Now, one of the nation’s most famous bounty hunters is on the case.

Dog the Bounty Hunter arrived at Brian Laundrie’s parents’ home Saturday, knocked on the door and met silence, but he’s already picked up a scent.

“The reason I went to Mr. [Christopher] Laundrie is I carry a reputation with me,” he told Fox News Digital moments later. “The reputation is, ‘He gives you a second chance. He’s gonna get you, but he gives you a second chance.’”

The reality TV star and legendary bounty hunter, whose real name is Duane Chapman, is a father of 13 who lost a daughter around the same age as Gabby Petito in a car accident in 2006. He was already in Florida on a honeymoon with his wife Francie Chapman, he said, when people began reaching out to him to look into Laundrie’s disappearance.

The television star was hoping for the best.

Laundrie’s parents reported him missing Friday, Sept. 17, telling police they hadn’t seen him in three days.

“And the dad can still reach out to me, through social media,” Chapman said. “Let’s get the kid captured alive. Alive.”

Laundrie has been charged with federal bank fraud after being found to have used Petito’s debit card after her death.

As Joe Biden Pushes Debunked ‘Whipping’ Story, Border Patrol Lashes Out

These agents were NOT happy.

Published

on

Last week, a number of disturbing images erupted at the southern border, that appeared to depict Border Patrol officer chasing migrants on horseback.

To make matters worse, the way in which the photos were presented seemed to suggest that these agents were using the reins of their mounts to “whip” the migrants, invoking imagery from a much darker time in America’s past.

Even President Joe Biden and the White House Press Secretary seemed perturbed by it, but there was one problem:  Border Patrol claims none of it is accurate.

On Friday, amid an ongoing investigation into the agents – who have now been shifted to desk duty – and a day after the Biden administration barred the use of horses in Del Rio, the president tore into those agents.

“To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped – it’s outrageous,” Biden said, making a whipping motion with his hand. “I promise you, those people will pay. There will be an investigation underway now and there will be consequences. There will be consequences.”

This didn’t sit well with agents, however.

Border Patrol agents were stunned and angered by the comments, which both claimed without evidence that migrants were run over and whipped, and at the same time cast a shadow over the investigation.

“Would you go to work and do your best knowing that if you do your boss is going to ‘make you pay’?” one agent told Fox News.  “I’m dumbfounded and don’t know what to say.”

The agent asked, “Is the president threatening to throw us in prison?”

Another said: “I see the administration wants to fry our agents. He just started a war with Border Patrol.”

Biden’s continued bungling of the border situation has been a key part of his flailing approval numbers of late, and this attempt to throw federal law enforcement under the bus certainly isn’t going to help either.
