Body cam shows Columbus, MS officer threaten to ’empty a magazine’ into black driver’s car

Published

This is the benefit of body cameras for police officers. I think they should all wear them, since everything an officer does is potentially in evidence for a suspect who may be charged with a crime.

It also serves to remind officers that they can’t just go around saying things like “Because you’re kind of appearing to me to be the kind of twitchy kind of person who has done something wrong–Listen to me. So all this reaching and grabbing, whatever, I guarantee you, before you think you can do something, I can empty a magazine into this car.”

The Columbus, Mississippi police officer, Keith Dowd, pulled over a driver named Joshua Hibbler for speeding. He proceeded to harangue and accuse the man of smoking weed. During the roadside interrogation, Dowd didn’t like the fact that Hibbler was moving around too much–hence the threat.

The city’s mayor was  none too pleased.

Mayor Robert Smith directed Police Chief Oscar Lewis III to place Dowd on administrative leave. “I want him off the streets now,” Smith wrote. “[Because] it has come to my attention that Officer Dowd has exhibited similar behavior on at least two other traffic stops prior to 8/18.”

Apparently, it has never sunk in for Dowd that he’s wearing a body camera to protect the citizens from himself, and he should act to protect their rights. But when he’s unemployed, I’m sure it will hit him.

Instead of military hardware, let the federal government give away body cams to every local police department. That, I believe, will go a longer way toward justice, law and order than 100 SWAT teams.

16-year-old accused Sylvester Stallone of forcing her into a threesome with his bodyguard

16-year-old accused Sylvester Stallone of forcing her into a threesome with his bodyguard

As Hollywood, Washington DC, and everywhere in between seems to be getting rocked by sexual misconduct scandals, Sylvester Stallone has had one from his past creep back up. An unnamed 16-year-old girl signed a “no-prosecution form” for police in 1986 claiming Stallone forced her to engage in a “threesome” with his bodyguard.

The young fan reported she was given Stallone’s room key at the Las Vegas Hilton while he was filming Over the Top. She used the key to go to his room and began having intercourse with him. Then, she claims he called for his bodyguard who was in the bathroom and forced her to perform other sexual acts with them simultaneously.

She also said Stallone threatened to “beat her head in” if she told anyone about the incident.

My Take

As with so many reports coming out in recent weeks, this one seems credible. It demonstrates a trend that is now being exposed, one where men of power take advantage of women (and sometimes men) for the sexual gratification.

This isn’t new. It’s just coming out now as women are getting the courage to speak out.

The teen ended up signing a no-prosecution form and the issue was dropped, according to the Daily Mail.

Menendez gets a mistrial

Menendez gets a mistrial

Democrats on Capitol Hill and around the nation would be celebrating a good day as Senator Bob Menendez was granted a mistrial in his federal corruption case. The news was relegated to page-2 news as his colleague, Senator Al Franken, was accused of sexual misconduct.

Reports of a hopelessly deadlocked jury mean the Senator will likely not have to go to trial again following 11 weeks of drama in Newark, NJ. He and co-defendant Salomon Melgen weren’t acquitted, but the mistrial declaration means the government would have to rebuild their case to justify another go-around. Quotes from jurors indicate they didn’t have much of a case, allegedly 10 of the 12 jurors favored acquittal.

“When the prosecution rested…in my gut I was like, that was it, that’s all they had?” said Ed Norris, a 49-year-old juror from Roxbury Township.

“To those who were digging my political grave so that they could jump into my seat, I know who you are and I won’t forget you,” the Democrat said at a press conference.

Judge declares mistrial in Senator Bob Menendez federal corruption trial

The way it was investigated was wrong. The way it was prosecuted was wrong,” proclaimed the senator, thanking 12 jurors “who saw through the government’s false claims and used their Jersey common sense to reject it.”

In a statement, the Justice Department also thanked the jury, and said only “the department will carefully consider next steps in this important matter and report to the court at the appropriate time.”

As Sexual Assault Gains Attention, the Left’s Silence on Bob Menendez Is Deafening

http://dailysignal.com/2017/11/15/sexual-assault-gains-attention-lefts-silence-bob-menendez-deafening/A new Media Research Center analysis reported that ABC, CBS, and NBC devoted 40 times more of their morning and evening TV newscast coverage this past week to Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore’s alleged sexual assault accusers than to the ongoing federal trial of one of the Democrats’ most powerful, visible, and entrenched figures on Capitol Hill.

Four years ago, when the FBI raided the Florida home of Democratic donor and eye doctor Salomon Melgen, Menendez suddenly remembered that he had failed to pay back his “hermano” $60,000 for private jet flights to the Caribbean—where Melgen owns a tony home in the private Casa de Campo resort.

Muskets are now in the cross-hairs

Muskets are now in the cross-hairs

It’s been a staple of the gun grabber left to invoke muskets when referring to the 2nd amendment. The contention is usually that the founding fathers wouldn’t have affirmed the civil right of self defense IF they had known what the future would hold with ‘military style’ and repeating firearms. Of course, this is balderdash of the first order given that they were learned men with knowledge of how technology had progressed from the past and what it would do the same in the future. In addition, repeating firearms had already been created at the time (e.g. the Puckle gun), the technology was in a nascent state at the time and the military was the source of most firearms.

That being said, there is now a report from the Free Beacon that Former congresswoman Gabby Giffords’s gun control group has released a warning of the danger of muzzle loaders [Essentially muskets] and other devices:

Muzzleloaders are firearms that must be loaded through the end of the barrel with powder, wadding and a projecticle [sic]. Muzzleloaders fell out of favor as a firearm of choice almost a century ago, and are generally seen as primitive antiques. That’s why federal law generally exempts them from regulation. Cue the .50 calibre muzzleloader, which delivers a particularly lethal .50 caliber round.

Granted, this is within the context of a musket with suppressor, but the gun grabber refrain has always been that we’re only ‘allowed’ these weapons under the auspices of the 2nd amendment. So now they have ‘jumped the shark’ and are now going after technology from centuries past.

By the way, one of the best known examples of the ‘Military Style’ of the day was the .75 calibre ‘Brown Bess’ musket carried by the Redcoats in the Revolutionary war. This was the reason the founding fathers placed the commonsense civil right of self defense near the top of the Bill of Rights, and now even that technology is unacceptable to the gun grabbers.
