Nine times out of ten, reports of police brutality or excessive use of force turn out to be reasonable in the situations. But every now and then a case presents itself where the incident was clearly provoked or escalated unnecessarily by a police officer who doesn’t deserve to wear the badge. This is one of those cases.
The victim's lawyer says that the officer "just got mad." https://t.co/qsZUyuTXfB

Nate Carter was checking his mail. When Chattanooga police officer Cody Thomas approached him, Carter tried to return to his home. That’s when Thomas deployed a taser, threatened to shoot his dog, and then waived his gun at Carter’s family before arresting Carter.
Carter is suing for $3 million.
Dealing with real criminals is difficult enough for law enforcement officers. When politicians, mainstream media, anti-cop activists enter the equation as they so often do nowadays, the thankless job of being a cop is much harder. But the worst thing that cops have to deal with is other cops making the rest of them look bad.
There was absolutely no reason to continue to question Carter. He didn’t match the description of the person described to police dispatchers as the suspect. He was clearly checking his own mail, passing his own dog, and going into his own house. Had Thomas simply let him go, and there was no reason for him not to, then this would never have escalated. Instead, it seemed like Thomas needed to utilize his power on someone and Carter was the most convenient option.
Keep in mind there was allegedly a person with a gun in the neighborhood at this point. That’s why Thomas was called to the scene in the first place, and that person clearly wasn’t the guy checking his own mail. How Thomas came to the conclusion that tasing Carter and using so many police assets to focus on arresting him when there was a guy with a gun roaming the neighborhood is unfathomable.
He should have just let Carter check his mail and get back to his home and family. Then, he should have searched for the guy with the gun.
“Thomas later claimed that Carter was standing in the street and “bolted” prior to the incident. He charged Carter with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Those charges were thrown out by a judge in November and Carter is now suing.” – Zuri Davis
Being a cop is hard enough in today’s super-sensitive society. But when police clearly cross the line and engage in activities that put innocent people in jeopardy, the jobs of real cops get much harder.
Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- ZStack: Improve your immune system with the Z-Stack protocol or rejuvenate your body from vaccines or shedding with Z-DTox by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them JD sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
