Officers were responding to reports of an armed male suspect, Natango Robinson, chasing another male just before 5 p.m. Friday.  When officers arrived and located Robinson, 35, a "struggle ensued and the suspect was able to flee from the officers" and get into his vehicle, the D.C. police department said in a press release. While officers entered Robinson's vehicle in an attempt to get him out, the suspect started driving with one officer still inside his car. Two other officers "were thrown to the ground" as the Robinson sped off. The officer inside Robinson's vehicle "voiced numerous commands for the suspect to stop the vehicle and the suspect did not comply," the MPD said in their press release.

    The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday in favor of Oklahoma police officers who were accused of using excessive force after fatally shooting a man who raised a hammer behind his head, “and took a stance as if he was about to throw the hammer or charge at the officers.” The Court held that the officers are entitled to qualified immunity. In August 2016, police officers Josh Girdner, Chase Reed, and Brandon Vick responded to a 911 call from Dominic Rollice’s ex-wife, Joy, who told a dispatcher that Rollice was in her garage, was intoxicated, and would not leave, the Supreme Court explained in a per curiam opinion. Joy requested police assistance, adding that “it’s going to get ugly real quick” if officers do not arrive, the Court adds. When the officers arrived at the scene, they spoke with Rollice in the doorway of the garage, where Rollice “expressed concern that the officers intended to take him to jail,” and then “began fidgeting with something in his hands.” At that point, Officer Girdner asked if he could pat Rollice down for weapons, to which Rollice responded by refusing the request.

    Television news photographers prepare to cover the final opinions of the current court’s term at the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, U.S. July 1, 2021.Jonathan Ernst | Reuters The Supreme Court in two cases Monday ruled that police officers were entitled to protection from being sued over their use of force against suspects. The unsigned opinions, posted in the court's periodic list of orders, both overturned lower appellate decisions. One case involved an officer accused of excessive force when he put his knee on a man's back during an arrest, while trying to remove a knife from the man's pocket. In the other case, two officers were sued by the estate of a man whom they shot and killed after he appeared to threaten them with a hammer. The high court said officers in both cases were entitled to qualified immunity. That doctrine protects officials from lawsuits unless it can be shown that they violated "clearly established" rights that a reasonable person would know about. Police-reform advocates have called for an end to qualified immunity, arguing it insulates officers from...

    A Middlesex County ex-con sought in a string of armed robberies had his 8-months-pregnant girlfriend with him when he led police on a reckless high-speed chase -- eventually ramming their vehicles -- after holding up a Clifton Dunkin Donuts at knifepoint, authorities said. At least seven other law enforcement agencies had identified the 2008 Nissan Altima spotted by Officer George Balkjy speeding through the Styertowne Shopping Center parking lot, Detective Lt. Robert Bracken said. The driver -- Jonathan Decarvalho, 34, of Parlin -- had just robbed the Dunkin Donuts there, Bracken said. Suspecting the Nissan may have been involved in a crime, Balkjy activated his lights and siren. But Decarvalho sped off, at one point driving into oncoming traffic, the lieutenant said. Informed by a dispatcher about the robbery, Balkjy pursued the Altima onto eastbound Route 21, then onto southbound Route 21 -- and eventually onto Oriental Street in Newark, Bracken said. What Decarvalho didn't know is that Oriental Street is a dead end, he said. Boxed in, he rammed two Clifton police cars and some unoccupied residents' vehicles, Bracken said....
