    JACKSONVILLE, Florida — Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, one of the 55 Florida sheriffs who on Monday announced their endorsement for Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) reelection campaign, blasted the left’s efforts to ‘Defund the Police’ as well as their failure to defend law enforcement, noting that tens of thousands of people are flocking to the Sunshine State because it is safe.

    The company that provides Los Angeles County with coronavirus testing said it plans to sue Sheriff Alex Villanueva for defamation over claims the sheriff made alleging the company has links to the Chinese government. Fulgent Genetics, the Temple City company contracted to administer tests and track the vaccination status of county employees, alleged that Villanueva orchestrated a briefing with FBI agents a day after Thanksgiving “in a last-ditch effort” to avoid complying with the county’s employee vaccine mandate, according to papers the company’s lawyers filed in court Friday. After the briefing, Villanueva claimed in a letter to elected county officials that FBI agents had called the meeting to warn him about Fulgent. The Times obtained a copy of the letter the same day Villanueva sent it.

They alleged that the FBI “never even mentioned Fulgent’s name” during the meeting. Fulgent,...

    An LA sheriff's deputy is suing over claims her boss Alex Villanueva's wife branded her a 'bitch' and a 'c***' for failing to recruit one of her unfit unfit friends.    Deputy Lina Pimental said in a lawsuit filed in LA County Superior Court that her 'career progression has now been effectively terminated because of Vivian Villanueva's personal attacks on her.' Many of the foul mouthed slurs and threats are said to have been made in full earshot of colleagues by Vivian, who also worked as a sheriff's deputy until her retirement.  Pimental's suit describes Vivian Villanueva's expletive-laden tirades against her, beginning in March of 2020, after she claimed in her position as a recruit training officer that Natalie Garcia - a friend of Villanueva - was unqualified for a position with the office.  Garcia worked in the county jail, but failed her physical examination to join the sheriff's department. Pimental - who had been a recruit training officer dating back to August 2019 - made that decision, allegedly sparking Vivian Villanueva's fury.   'In retaliation for Plaintiff dismissing her friend as...
    The California sheriff tasked with pursuing charges against the four alleged gang members accused in the shooting death of an off-duty Los Angeles Police Department officer says he took the case to federal prosecutors because the response from the local district attorney’s office was "not satisfactory" and "really did not cover the depravity of this crime."  Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva made the comments to the Los Angeles Times. Luis Alfredo De La Rosa Rios, 29; Ernesto Cisneros, 22; Jesse Contreras, 34; and Rios’ girlfriend Haylee Marie Grisham, 18, are expected to appear in court Friday after being charged in the killing of off-duty officer Fernando Arroyos. The 27-year-old was gunned down Monday in South Los Angeles during an attempted robbery while he was looking at houses with his girlfriend, authorities said.  "I believe their plan was to just prosecute a simple murder with no gun enhancements, no gang enhancements, nothing," Villanueva told the Los Angeles Times when asked if he had consulted with Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon’s office. "And that really did not cover the depravity of this crime…. It should be noted that...
    Alec Baldwin has still not turned over his cell phone to the officers investigating the shooting on the set of his film, Rust, despite his many claims that he is cooperating with the investigation. The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office issued a warrant for Baldwin’s cell phone back on Dec. 16, and according to the Hollywood Reporter, the actor’s lawyer has acknowledged receipt of the order. But Baldwin has yet to comply, the paper added. The sheriff’s office has reportedly turned to the district attorney’s office because the actor has still not complied with the warrant. Despite the clear facts, though, Baldwin continues to insist that he has been complying with all legal orders from investigators. “Any suggestion that I am not complying with requests or orders or demands or search warrants about my phone, that’s bullshit, that’s a lie,” Baldwin said in a video rant posted to social media on Jan. 8.

      Sean Rayford/Getty Images A Georgia law enforcement officer who gloated online about Ahmaud Arbery’s death following last week’s sentencing has been given a termination date. Last week, Judge Timothy Walmsley sentenced Travis McMichael, his father Gregory McMichael, and William “Roddie” Bryan to life sentences for the February 2020 killing of Arbery. Arbery was out jogging in 2020 when he was shot to death in a Georgia neighborhood after he was accused of being a suspect in a series of burglaries. Walmsley slammed the McMichaels for their lack of remorse when he handed down sentences of life without parole for the two men. “There’s been discussion about remorse,” said Walmsley. “Remorse is something that’s felt and demonstrated, in this case, getting back to the video, again, after Ahmaud Arbery fell, the McMichaels turned their backs.” One law enforcement officer who had been following the case apparently did not feel justice was served, but he did signal an endorsement of the vigilante killing of the 25-year-old. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported when Walmsley handed down the sentences, Houston County, Georgia, Deputy Paul Urhahn reacted to a...

    A former Cincinnati, Ohio sheriff said Thursday he has left the Democratic Party to join Republicans. "I left office January 4th of 2021. And I pretty much have taken the year off … I also, did a lot of serious thinking.

Houston County Deputy Paul Urhahn has been placed on unpaid leave after reportedly making the comment in a now-deleted Facebook post about the death of the black jogger at the hands of Travis and Gregory McMichael, and William 'Roddie' Bryan in Satilla Shores.  Urhann, who is white, was suspended on Monday after an internal investigation found that he violated company policies, such as conducting himself 'in a manner which does not bring discredit to the department or county' and acting in a 'tendency to destroy public respect for employees and confidence in the department.'   Urhahn will have ten days to appeal the termination decision or he will be fired from January 20 from the department, which is located about 180 miles northwest of where Arbery was murdered.

              by Kyle Hooten   In 1995, Minneapolis saw a record-setting 97 homicides. Operating by the strict definition of a homicide as an event where one person intentionally kills another, there were 97 homicides in the city last year. The final homicide of 2021 occurred just hours before the new year as a 15-year-old boy was gunned down in north Minneapolis. No arrests have been made. The shooters are believed to have fired from a vehicle. Some homicides, like the killing of Winston Smith in June, were justified and non-criminal. Technicalities aside, most share a concern about the high number of murders in 2021. “Nobody wanted this day to come, but we knew all year long that Minneapolis was going to reach its all-time record,” former Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek said in a press release from the Foundation for Minnesota’s Future, where he sits on the board. “How many innocent souls have to be lost before elected leaders will start listening and take preemptive action? The lives lost were sons, daughters, fathers, mothers. Some infants. This isn’t a partisan issue, this is...
