Tennessee boy, 13, stabs brother saying jail is better than car ride with sibling, deputies say

Westlake Legal Group Okaloosa-sheriffs-car Tennessee boy, 13, stabs brother saying jail is better than car ride with sibling, deputies say Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/tennessee fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/florida fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/odd-news fox news fnc/us fnc article 3440def5-c5bb-5466-b2b0-ada627c27dcd

A 13-year-old boy from Tennessee stabbed his 15-year-old brother in Florida, telling deputies he would rather go to jail than spend eight hours in the car with his sibling, investigators said.

Lt. Todd Watkins with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News on Sunday that he responded to the scene the day before and said deputies arrested the 13-year-old after he said he stabbed his brother in the arm three times with a “multi-tool.”

Watkins said the teen told deputies he did it because he was “tired of his brother picking on him.”

The incident happened inside a car parked in a driveway in Crestview, which is about a 45-minute drive from Pensacola, Watkins said.

The stabbed brother then walked to the door of the home and called 911, he added.

Watkins said as his brother was being questioned about the incident, he said he understood his rights and that he did not regret stabbing his sibling who was teasing him.

“I stabbed him and I don’t care about going back to jail. I’d rather be in jail than eight hours in the car with him,” according to the arrest report.

The 13-year-old was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and was brought to juvenile detention.

“We’ve had incidents with siblings but not this young,” Watkins told Fox News. “I have never dealt with them this young with this violent of a crime.”

Watkins said the older brother did not say much to deputies at the time he was stabbed. Watkins said the 15-year-old was heard calling some of his friends to retaliate against his brother while he was in the back of the ambulance, apparently to no avail.

Doctors treated t​​​​​he 15-year-old for three “deep puncture wounds” before releasing him from the hospital, Watkins said, adding that his treatment did not include surgery.

The brothers live in Clarksville, Tennessee, about an hour’s drive from Nashville.

Tempe Officers Association ‘encouraged’ by Starbucks apology after cops asked to leave

The Tempe Officers Association responded Sunday to the controversy that unfolded after some police officers were asked to leave an Arizona Starbucks on Independence Day, saying the union was “encouraged” by Starbucks’ apology and looked forward to “a welcome dialogue.”

“We would like to thank the public for the overwhelming support shown to our officers in the aftermath of this unfortunate incident,” the president of the Tempe Officers Association, Sergeant Rob Ferraro, said on Sunday.

“We are encouraged that Starbucks has reached out to our organization and to the Tempe Police Department to apologize and to further express their support of law enforcement.”

STARBUCKS APOLOGIZES AFTER POLICE OFFICERS ASKED TO LEAVE SHOP BECAUSE OF CUSTOMER COMPLAINT

He added, “We hope that out of this unfortunate incident there comes a welcome dialogue, one that more closely unites the men and women on the frontlines of police work with the communities we serve and protect.”

Starbucks apologized to Tempe police on Saturday after some of its officers were asked to leave one of its shops on the Fourth of July, following complaints from a customer who reportedly didn’t feel safe with cops present.

The coffee giant apologized for any “misunderstanding or inappropriate behavior that may have taken place” and said it had “deep respect for the Tempe Police Department.”

The company went further on Saturday, with its executive vice president writing to the Tempe Police Department that she wanted to “sincerely apologize” on behalf of Starbucks after six officers were asked to leave the Tempe store.

“They should have been welcomed and treated with dignity and the utmost respect by our partners (employees). Instead they were made to feel unwelcome and disrespected, which is completely unacceptable,” she wrote.

Six officers had bought their drinks prior to their July 4 shift and were standing together when a barista asked them to leave, the Tempe Officers Association posted to its Facebook account.

The post was accompanied by a parody Starbucks logo featuring coffee being dumped from a cup. The union called the request “offensive” and said “such treatment has become all too common in 2019.”

It was not clear whether the barista — who has not been identified — would face disciplinary action.

The coffee chain also made headlines last year after two black men waiting for a business associate were arrested inside a Philadelphia shop for trespassing. The men received an apology from the city’s police commissioner and Starbucks closed 8,000 locations for the better part of a day to conduct “racial bias training.”

Colorado sheriff’s office bloodhound helps find missing 12-year-old girl in Wyoming

A Colorado police dog turned out to be in the right place at exactly the right time last week, helping to locate a missing 12-year-old girl in Wyoming, according to officials.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook that Deputy K. Fosler and bloodhound Jessie were in Wyoming on an unrelated call when they were diverted for a request with the search of a missing girl.

Brianna Weinart was reported missing around 10 p.m. on Monday, according to the Casper Star-Tribune.

The deputy and Jessie joined in the search for their girl, but the nearly 90-degree heat required the dog to take a 20-minute break in spite of wearing a cooling vest. The cactus-dense area also made search efforts more difficult, according to the sheriff’s office.

“For nearly two hours, she searched the Wyoming area where the 12-year-old girl was last seen……and then she pulled her handler, Deputy Fosler, back toward the direction they started. Deputy Fosler thought she had lost the scent,” police said. “Turns out, she knew exactly where she was going and as the pair got closer to a home, Jessie went around to the back and near a large bush, they spotted the girl, hiding.”

Weinart was hungry, dehydrated and sunburned after 20 hours, but was “otherwise uninjured,” according to the sheriff’s office.

“This is one of those stories we’re glad to share with the public because it goes to our core mission of Protect, Serve, Enforce,” police said. “We’re thankful this young girl is going to be OK, and we’re thankful Deputy Fosler and K9 Jessie were in Wyoming and able to respond to help another agency and this family.”

Starbucks apologizes after police officers asked to leave shop because of customer complaint

Charlie Kirk: Starbucks engages in intolerable discrimination against police

Westlake Legal Group StarbucksCupReuters Charlie Kirk: Starbucks engages in intolerable discrimination against police fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/barack-obama fox-news/opinion fox-news/food-drink/drinks/coffee fox news fnc/opinion fnc Charlie Kirk article 564e520c-bf8c-55b5-9a20-ee58f63d17fa

On Feb. 1, 1960, four black college students sat down at a Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, N.C., and politely ordered coffee. White waitresses ignored them because the store had a policy of not serving African-Americans.

The incident sparked massive protests across the nation involving sit-ins by black people at Woolworth lunch counters, leading the chain to finally desegregate that July and boosting the civil rights movement.

This week, on the Fourth of July, the Officers Association in Tempe, Ariz., says six police officers were drinking coffee at a Starbucks coffee shop before the start of their shift when they were asked to move out of the line of sight of a customer or leave the store. A barista told them a customer “did not feel safe” because of their presence. The officers — including some who have defended our country in the military — left.

STARBUCKS SHOP BOOTS POLICE OFFICERS BECAUSE CUSTOMER ‘DID NOT FEEL SAFE’ AROUND THEM: REPORTS

It’s obvious that the discrimination against black people who were trying to order coffee all those years ago was wrong, shameful and inexcusable. It should be just as obvious that the same is true for the discrimination against the police officers at the Starbucks in Arizona this week.

In late May, Starbucks closed 8,000 stores across the U.S. for several hours of anti-bias training after two black men in one of the chain’s coffee shops in Philadelphia were arrested for trespassing while they waited for a friend to join them. Starbucks and police later apologized and the charges were dropped, prompting Starbucks to hold the anti-bias training to avoid future such incidents.

Are we now going to see a similar store closure for anti-bias training regarding police who want to order overpriced coffee at Starbucks? Don’t hold your breath.

The Tempe Officer’s Association took to Twitter to share the incident with the world and expressed displeasure with what had happened. Their tweet was illustrated with an altered Starbucks logo that said “DUMP STARBUCKS.”

Starbucks has issued a statement saying it has “deep respect for the Tempe Police Department” and apologizing “for any misunderstanding or inappropriate behavior that may have taken place.”

The person who complained to the barista about the police officers in the Starbucks store would no doubt welcome their presence if attacked by violent criminals.

Unfortunately, incidents of people openly expressing animosity toward police across our country have been increasing since 2014, when Michael Brown, who was black, was shot and killed by Officer Darren Wilson of the Ferguson, Mo., police department.

The shooting sparked days of protests, but a U.S. Justice Department investigation concluded that Wilson shot Brown in self-defense when Brown attacked him. Wilson was not charged with any crime.

Nevertheless, President Barack Obama used the incident for his own political purposes to stir up racial tension and animosity against the police.

Donald Trump ran for the presidency as a supporter of law enforcement. Both before and since his election, President Trump has repeatedly stood at podiums across the country and has been outspoken in his praise for the people who put on a uniform every day to protect American citizens from threats found not across oceans, but across the street and even in coffee shops.

Quite ironically, the support President Trump has shown is one of the driving reasons that police are now facing such open hostility across the country. I have written many times over the past couple of years about the broken logic string inside of the American liberal mind.

This particular wrongheaded thread runs something like this: Trump is evil and wants to harm minorities; Trump supports the police; therefore, the police are evil and want to harm minorities.

No one can claim all police are perfect, or that no police officer has ever acted improperly or even criminally. Every allegation of police misconduct should be thoroughly investigated and police officers who break the law should be prosecuted to the full extent the law allows.

But it’s important to remember that every profession is marred by a small number of people who abuse their positions and engage in wrongdoing – for example, members of the clergy or other professionals who engage in sexual misconduct, business people who steal money from their employers or customers, or pharmacists who become illegal drug dealers.

The truth is that the vast majority of police officers willingly risk their lives to protect the rest of us from criminals who would commit all sorts of crimes and do us grave harm if no police were around.

Who in their right mind would want to live in a city without a police force, where criminals were free to rob, rape, murder and do anything else they wanted?

The person who complained to the barista about the police officers in the Starbucks store would no doubt welcome their presence if attacked by violent criminals. And just by being in the Starbucks, the officers would almost certainly have scared off any criminals who entered and kept them from attacking anyone.

The bottom line is that the prejudice that says all members of a group should be the targets of our hatred and be discriminated against is wrong and frankly, un-America – whether we’re talking about people from a particular racial, ethnic, religious or professional group.

Starbucks needs to make sure all of its employees understand this, or else fire them for engaging in intolerable discrimination.

Starbucks shop boots police officers because customer ‘did not feel safe’ around them: reports

Some police officers in Tempe, Ariz., say they were asked to leave a Starbucks coffee shop on the Fourth of July because a customer complained they “did not feel safe” with the cops present, according to reports.

Five officers were drinking coffee at the Starbucks location prior to their shift beginning when a barista asked them to move out of the complaining customer’s line of sight or else leave, the Tempe Officers Association wrote in a series of Twitter messages.

Rob Ferraro, president of the police union, told FOX 10 of Phoenix that such treatment of police officers seems to be happening more often these days.

FOOD BLOGGER CLAIMS SHE WAS ATTACKED AT STARBUCKS FOR WEARING A HIJAB

“It’s become accepted to not trust or to see police and think that we’re not here to serve you, and again, it goes back to — we take great pride of the level of customer service we provide to citizens, and to be looked at as feeling unsafe when you have law enforcement around you is somewhat perplexing to me,” Ferraro told the station in a phone interview.

The police union also posted a series of Twitter messages about the incident.

“This treatment of public safety workers could not be more disheartening,” the union wrote. “While the barista was polite, making such a request at all was offensive. Unfortunately, such treatment has become all too common in 2019.”

The union said it did not blame the Starbucks corporate office, adding it looked forward “to working collaboratively with them on this important dialogue.”

Earlier Friday, the union tweeted a parody of the Starbucks logo, with the words “Dump Starbucks” and the image of a hand dumping the contents of a cup of coffee.

A Starbucks spokesman told the Arizona Republic the company was still gathering details about what happened.

“We have a deep respect for the Tempe Police and their service to the community,” spokesman Reggie Borges told the newspaper. “We’ve reached out to the Tempe Police Department and Tempe Officers Association to better understand what happened and apologize. We want everyone in our stores to feel welcomed and the incident described is not indicative of what we want any of our customers to feel in our stores.”

Indiana city where Buttigieg is mayor weighs buying more body cameras for police

Westlake Legal Group AP19185755160116 Indiana city where Buttigieg is mayor weighs buying more body cameras for police Louis Casiano fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/person/pete-buttigieg fox news fnc/politics fnc article 2111da8f-a8f1-55b8-b4b4-d8bada862a5b

The Indiana city where Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg presides as mayor is considering the purchase of 75 additional body cameras for its police force, weeks after the fatal shooting of a black man by a white police officer led to civil unrest.

The South Bend Board of Public Works added the special purchase item to its July 3 meeting but then removed it with no action taken. Mark Bode, a spokesman for Buttigieg’s office, told Fox News the item was added to the agenda prematurely.

“The administration is evaluating options to upgrade and expand body camera technologies,” Bode said, adding the decision to implement the expansion would most likely occur as part of the city’s 2020 budget process.

SOUTH BEND POLICE UNION SLAMS BUTTIGIEG OVER RESPONSE TO POLICE SHOOTING OF BLACK MAN

The cameras are estimated to cost $337,500, the South Bend Tribune reported. The city equipped its police officers with 170 body cameras a year ago at a cost of $1.5 million. The department has around 240 officers, according to the paper.

Bode did not say whether the process to purchase the cameras began before or after the June 16 fatal shooting of Eric Logan, 54, by South Bend police Sgt. Ryan O’Neill. The 19-year police veteran was responding to reports of someone breaking into cars when he encountered Logan, who authorities say was armed with a knife.

O’Neill’s body camera was not running during his confrontation with Logan. Buttigieg, 37, left the campaign trail to address the matter.

In the ensuing days, some criticized the mayor over the firing of the city’s black police chief during his first term and said he hadn’t done enough to reform the department.

BUTTIGIEG STRUGGLES WITH RACIAL UNREST IN SOUTH BEND, INDIANA

Buttigieg’s office said the police chief issued a general order that all officers activate their body cameras during all work-related interactions with civilians.

“This step is intended to confirm community expectations that police encounters with civilians will be recorded,” Buttigieg said in a statement to the paper.

The old policy required officers “activate the recorder during all enforcement stops and field interview situations, and any other time the (officer) reasonably believes that a recording of an on-duty contact may be useful.”

O’Neill has been placed on paid administrative leave and a special prosecutor had been appointed to investigate the shooting. Logan’s family is suing the city and the officer for using excessive deadly force.

Nashville officer killed after 17-year-old driving without a license slammed into his police vehicle while on duty, police say

A Tennessee police officer was killed while on duty Thursday when his marked police car was struck by a 17-year-old motorist who was driving without a license, according to the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department.

Officer John Anderson, a four-year veteran of the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (MNPD) and a father of an 18-month-old son, was hit around 3 a.m. Thursday when he was heading to an interstate to assist a fellow officer with a pedestrian who was reported to have been in a traffic lane waving his arms, police said.

Anderson’s police vehicle was “violently struck” on the driver’s side by a 2016 Ford Fusion driven by 17-year-old Jayona Brown, according to police.

Brown was booked into juvenile detention on charges of vehicular homicide by recklessness, felony evading arrest, aggravated assault by recklessness, driving on a suspended license and juvenile curfew violation.

According to a preliminary investigation, Anderson, 28, was hit by Brown after she failed to stop for a flashing red traffic light at Woodland Street and Interstate Drive in Nashville, police said.

Officer Anderson died at the scene.  Brown was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, where she was treated and released. Police said Brown’s passenger was critically injured and is being treated at another local hospital.

Minutes before the collision, police said a DUI unit officer in an unmarked police car saw the Ford Fusion commit a lane violation and got behind the car.  The officer activated his blue lights to stop the car and police said Brown pulled to the right and slowed down, but did not stop.  When the officer activated his siren, Brown sped away, police said.

Police said the car was not reported stolen since it belonged to Brown’s aunt, and the officer decided not to pursue it. The officer did, however, radio that the car did not stop for him and provided the license plate number, according to police.

Nashville’s mayor, David Briley, tweeted on Thursday that “this tragedy is a stark reminder of our officers’ selfless pledge to protect and serve our city – and we will be forever grateful.”

“When our city experiences tragedy, we come together as one community to support and lift each other up. I know that will happen today and in the weeks to come. My thoughts are with the family and friends of Officer Anderson and our entire police force,” Briley also tweeted.

Anderson graduated from the MNPD academy in June 2015 and was also a member of the department’s Drill & Ceremony Team. He was a member of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve as well.

Officer Anderson received the MNPD’s Lifesaving Award in 2017 for saving a victim who had a deep wound after being stabbed. Police said Anderson minimized his blood loss until medics arrived on scene.

Anderson received the Lifesaving Award again in 2018 for saving a suicidal man who was about jump off a bridge.

Anderson also received the Department Commendation Award in 2019 for responding to a reported robbery of a business and arresting two suspects after a “several hours long standoff,” police said.

When Anderson and other officers first responded to the business “all appeared normal,” according to police.

“Rather than just leave, they continued to investigate and found a clerk hiding in a cooler in the back of the convenience store,” police said, adding that the clerk advised that the two suspects were in the office and that one was armed with a gun. Police added that the clerk told officers she had hidden in the cooler after calling 911.

Violent clashes in Portland, Ore., prompt call for anti-mask laws

Authorities in Portland, Ore., are calling for a series of laws to curb violent clashes at demonstrations that include prohibiting masks worn by protesters, allowing police to videotape demonstrations and giving the city greater control over events organized by groups with violent histories.

“We cannot allow people to continue to use the guise of free speech to commit a crime,’’ police Chief Danielle Outlaw said in a Wednesday news conference addressing last week’s violence that occurred when three competing demonstrations converged downtown.

Several people were injured in connection with demonstrations as marchers with an anti-fascist group clashed with conservative protesters with the Proud Boys and supporters of the #HimToo movement. Conservative writer Andy Ngo was assaulted by Antifa members and spent the night in an emergency room.

About 15 states and some countries have anti-mask laws, the Oregonian reported. Opponents argue such laws would deprive people anonymity to express their views and would violate their First Amendment rights.

“We looked into it previously and the constitutional free speech issues are difficult to overcome, at least in Oregon, said Tim Crail, chief of staff for Portland Commissioner Amanda Fritz.

Outlaw said the issue was a matter of public safety. Portland has been the site of several violent demonstrations between Antifa supporters and conservative demonstrators in recent months.

Ngo, who covered Antifa for the website Quillette, was kicked in the head and had objects thrown at him.

“A lot of people are emboldened because they know they can’t be identified,’’ Outlaw said.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon said it doubts a policy prohibiting masks could be enforced in a constitutional manner.

“A policy that prohibits wearing a mask to a protest will have police focusing on the wrong issue,” Sarah Armstrong, a spokeswoman for the group, told the paper. “Behavior is the issue, not the mask,” she said. “It could be argued that the mask is an important symbolic part of a protester’s message. …  There are many legitimate reasons people wear ‘masks,’ including political and religious reasons.”
