    Shocking new video has emerged in connection with the bizarre arrest of Malik McDowell, showing the Cleveland Browns defensive tackle charging naked at a Florida police officer and pummeling the deputy before being tasered and arrested outside a nearby preschool.   McDowell has since been released on $27,000 bond after being charged with aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer with violence and exposing his sex organs in public. He was previously arrested in 2019 for DUI and assaulting police in Michigan, and remains on probation for that conviction.  Footage of the naked McDowell charging at the officer supports an arrest report, obtained by DailyMail.com, that claims the Browns star was violent and may have left the deputy with a permanent eye injury. One arresting officer said the 6-foot-6, 295-pound McDowell was tasered during the violent arrest, which took place following reports of a nude man walking near the preschool.  TMZ also published contrasting footage on Wednesday, showing McDowell casually greeting people at the gym and sharing a few hugs less than an hour before the arrest.

Officer Eric Pratt was one of the tourist town’s cops who questioned the couple on Aug. 12 after a potential domestic-violence incident between them was reported by a concerned onlooker.

    Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman pays his respects to the late U.S. Capitol Police officer William "Billy" Evans as he lies in honor in the Rotunda at the U.S. Capitol on April 13, 2021. Evans was killed in the line of duty during the attack outside the U.S. Capitol on April 2. It’s National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, and I can’t think of a more fitting way to honor law enforcement officers than by crafting policies to take them out of harm’s way. That's exactly what newly-elected Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, the first Black man to hold the title, was attempting when he sent his staff a 10-page memo on Monday instructing prosecutors to only pursue jail time for those accused of the most serious crimes unless the law required them to do otherwise. Not included in his definition of serious crimes are misdemeanor offenses for marijuana, fare evasion, prostitution, trespassing, and resisting arrest—an offense launched against several people we now know to be victims of police brutality including George Floyd. “These policy changes not only will, in and of themselves, make us safer;...

    The sister of a federal officer slain in a drive-by shooting by followers of an extremist anti-government movement is suing Facebook's parent company, claiming the social media giant promoted 'inflammatory and violent content' that contributed to his death. Angela Jacobs Underwood - whose brother was fatally wounded outside a courthouse in Oakland, California - said Meta connected her brother's accused killer and his accomplice on Facebook to the extremist group called Boogaloo to  plan the ambush. 'The shooting was not a random act of violence,' she said in a lawsuit filed Thursday in California Supreme Court. 'It was the culmination of an extremist plot hatched and planned on Facebook by two men who Meta connected through Facebook's groups infrastructure and its use of algorithms designed and intended to increase user engagement and, correspondingly, Meta's profits.'  The lawsuit against Meta - which changed its corporate name from Facebook last year after a raft of scandals - cited research suggesting the tech giant rewarded 'untrue, divisive, and violent content,' to boost user engagement.  David Patrick Underwood, a Department of Homeland Security officer,...

    By Jessica Schneider and Tierney Sneed | CNN Facebook is the target of a new lawsuit from the sister of a slain federal officer who claims the tech giant’s algorithms and drive for revenue played an active role encouraging her brother’s alleged killers. The wrongful death lawsuit was filed in California state court Thursday by Angela Underwood Jacobs, the sister of David Patrick Underwood, a federal protective services officer who was shot and killed outside a federal building in Oakland, California, in May 2020. The lawsuit claims that the shooting by an alleged member of the Boogaloo extremist movement was “not a random act of violence,” but instead, “the culmination of an extremist plot hatched and planned on Facebook by two men.” It comes on the heels of revelations late last year from former Facebook employee Frances Haugen that Facebook has consistently chosen to maximize profit and growth over public safety.

    According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia, Patrick Shackelford, a federal corrections officer at U.S. Penitentiary Atlanta (“USP Atlanta”), and Patrick Kirkman and Mitchell Arms, both federal inmates, have been arraigned on federal bribery, smuggling, and drug charges arising from an alleged scheme to smuggle narcotics and other contraband into USP Atlanta between approximately June 2018 and February 2019. “Shackelford allegedly endangered his fellow officers and other inmates through his actions,” said U.S. Attorney Kurt R. Erskine. “When correction officers violate their oaths, they put other prison staff members and inmates at risk of harm.” “The alleged actions of Shackelford not only fosters criminal activity inside and outside of the prison, but it also insults the integrity of every law enforcement officer who takes an oath to serve and protect the people in their communities,” said Chris Hacker, Special Agent in Charge of FBI Atlanta. “The FBI will relentlessly pursue any allegations of corruption in these facilities to ensure the safety of both staff and...
    A woman and her pitbull were shot dead at a store Sunday night in what appears to be the second murder of the new year after a 2021 that saw the highest number of homicides in a decade. Jennifer Ynoa, 36, stood in front of the counter at Salim Smoke Shop and & Lottery Corp on Dekalb Avenue in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn shortly before 10pm Sunday. Surveillance footage shows her holding a leash as a man approaches the door and points a gun at her from outside of the store.  She was pronounced dead at Brooklyn Hospital and her dog also died, according to the New York Police Department.  It has been reported that she was caught in the middle as the gunman opened fire on someone inside the store, but a NYPD spokesman told DailyMail.com that it's unclear whether she knew the gunman or if he was aiming at someone else.    The killing comes as New York City reported 481 murders through December 30, up from 468 in 2021 and the highest since 2011's 515 murders.

    The Los Angeles cop who accidentally shot a teenage girl dead at a Burlington store in Hollywood while trying to take down a suspect assaulting customers is reportedly 'shattered' by the incident. William Dorsey Jones Jr, 42, had worked to build relationships between the police force and the community, founding the 'Officers for Change' at-risk youth profit, and sharing photos of him delivering gifts to children and coaching high school football teams.  But Jones, who has served in the LAPD for more than 10 years, is now facing backlash for shooting 14-year-old Valentina Orellana-Peralta while she hid inside a dressing room with her mother on December 23, his lawyer confirmed to The New York Times. She was pronounced dead at the scene. He is now on administrative leave, and his lawyer, Leslie Wilcox, told the Mercury News: 'This is something he says that he will be living with every day for the rest of his life. He is trying to figure out a process to keep moving forward when he knows her family can't.  'He's just shattered,' she said, adding that Jones 'was...

    Q: Ed Mocarsk claims you don’t need chains if you have an 4WD vehicle. That is not the case. I was stopped once heading to Kirkwood from Tahoe by the CHP, making sure my vehicle had four-wheel drive, and that I had chains. I did not have any, thinking that I did not need them. I was informed that it was necessary to carry chains, even for 4WD vehicles. The officer explained that in R3 (blizzard) conditions, the only vehicles allowed are 4WD with chains. I’ve never experienced R3, as I thought they closed the road before that. That was about 15 years ago, so maybe they have changed the rules? Mike Greenwood, San Jose A: The rules have not changed. All vehicles are required to carry chains, and to put them on when conditions require it. Another mistake, as we could see in reports from the Sierra blizzard this week, is that some drivers ignore official road warnings, and believe their GPS, which may not factor in extreme weather conditions on side roads. Q: You can’t listen to AM...

    In this handout provided by the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office, former Brooklyn Center Police Officer Kim Potter poses for a mugshot at the Hennepin County Jail on April 14 in Minneapolis. A juror who spoke to NBC-affiliated KARE 11 on the condition of anonymity told the news station why convicting former Minnesota police officer Kim Potter last Thursday took some 27 hours. Potter, a white woman, was convicted on counts of first-degree and second-degree manslaughter after she shot Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black father, on Apr. 11, 2021. It was difficult not to question whether race played a factor in how Potter responded to Wright before killing him. The shooting happened about 10 miles north of the Hennepin County Courthouse, where former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was standing trial for murdering George Floyd. Chauvin had kneeled on Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes, killing him as onlookers begged the officer to stop. But the juror in the Potter case said he didn’t believe race was a factor in Potter’s handling of Wright. “I don’t want to speak for all the jurors, but...
    As America nears the one-year anniversary of the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol, one of the police officers caught in the onslaught is fearful of a repeat event, and furious with those who continue minimize what he and his colleagues experienced that day. U.S. Capitol Police Sgt. Aquilino Gonell spoke to NPR about the “horrific” year he had recovering from his injuries and the mental trauma from January 6th. As he spoke about his efforts to get back on the job in an administrative role for the Capitol Police, Gonell explained that it is difficult whenever he runs into members of Congress who continue to run with the lie that former President Donald Trump won the election, the same lie that fueled his supporters in their violent attack on the Capitol. “We risked our lives to give them enough time to get to safety. And allegedly, some of them were in communication with some of the rioters and with some of the coordinators or in the know of what would happen,” said Gonell. “And it makes you question...
