Both men are charged with first-degree murder, criminal attempted first degree murder, and theft of property.

    When detectives show up at crime scenes often all they find are spent bullet casings on the ground - no gun, no witness, sometimes no victim. But each casing tells a story that can eventually allow police to tie a crime to a gun to a suspect. Sometimes the gun is recovered days, weeks even years later by a search warrant or at another crime scene. At that point, many police departments will fire the gun into a water-logged cylinder for the sole purpose of producing a casing that has a unique image or fingerprint. The Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms and Explosives helped develop a computer imaging system known as NIBIN that allows police to link those casings to a firearm and often a suspect. MAN CHARGED WITH CAPITAL MURDER, TEEN RELEASED IN TEXAS GAS STATION TRIPLE MURDER CASE "You have aggravated assaults, you may have a carjacking, you may have an armed robbery where a firearm is used," said ATF’s Los Angeles-based Assistant Special Agent in Charge Stephen Galloway.

    LAKEWOOD, Colo.

However, information emerged of McCleod’s previous connections to the tattoo business and publishing. McCleod formed a publishing company in the mid-2000s called Flat Black Ink. The company’s status with the state has been delinquent for several years.

He also posted several interviews and podcasts on YouTube, as recently as five months ago. (credit: YouTube) On an Instagram...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Kim Potter, a former police officer in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, was convicted of manslaughter Thursday in the April 11 shooting death of 20-year-old Daunte Wright, a Black motorist.

    They’re doing it again. The New York Times is aggressively hiding relevant facts on a matter of public interest simply in order to promote the narrative of black victimhood. OK, we didn’t get away with it last time, but we probably will this time. Let’s try! Daunte Wright is the half-black man fatally shot by a police officer in Minnesota earlier this year. According to Nexis, he has appeared in well over 100 articles in the Times. But one thing Times readers will never be told is that Wright was facing criminal charges for trying to choke a woman to death while robbing her at gunpoint. They will also never hear about the lawsuit accusing Wright and an accomplice of shooting a guy during a carjacking. In a bold departure from customary practice, the Times did make two passing references to another lawsuit claiming Wright shot a guy in the head, permanently disabling him, but in both cases, quickly added: “The lawsuit offers no direct evidence tying Mr. Wright to the shooting.” And those are just the crimes he’s accused of committing lately, during the brief...

    Daunte Wright's family and supporters are hoping former officer Kim Potter will be held accountable for fatally shooting the 20-year-old, who was pulled over for the minor infractions of having an air freshener hanging from his rearview mirror and expired license plate tags. Former Brooklyn Center Police Officer Kim Potter took the stand shortly before 11 AM local time on Friday at the Hennepin County Courthouse in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Potter is facing one count of first-degree manslaughter and one count of second-degree manslaughter for fatally shooting 20-year-old Daunte Wright earlier this year during a traffic stop. Initially questioned by her own lawyer, Earl Gray, Potter described having wanted to work in law enforcement since elementary school and her various experiences over the course of her multi-decade career. Soon, Gray brought up April 11, 2021—the day Wright lost his life after Potter claimed she mistook her gun for a Taser. In Potter’s own words, had it not been for officer trainee Anthony Luckey wanting to stop Wright’s vehicle, she likely wouldn’t have pulled him over herself. Potter said she was advised “not to try to...

    Police didn't have a description of the other would-be robbers or their vehicle, the paper said, but the investigation is ongoing. What did folks have to say about the incident? Twitter users commenting on the L.A. Times' story about the incident were relieved by the outcome but decried the state of the streets and said law enforcement needs to do more: "Arm yourself!!!" one commenter wrote. "You know the police will not show up. They even said they can't protect you." "It’s the return of the Wild West. The more ineffective law enforcement is the more people will take their protection into their own hands," another user said. "Can’t blame them." "This is what screaming 'defund the police' gets you. [District Attorney George Gascon] is a POS who will try to prosecute the person who had to fight to save his own life," another commenter offered. "The more crime rises, and the more people feel those in power don’t care, the more citizens prepare for it, plan for it to happen, and arm themselves against it," another...
