The New York Police Department (NYPD) sent out 1,000 officers this weekend to enforce social distancing measures, as more people began congregating outside to soak up the warmer weather.

Officers were told to break up crowds and gatherings in the name of public health to help limit the spread of the novel coronavirus, The Associated Press reported.

The NYPD has made 60 arrests and issued 343 summonses related to social distancing since March 16, according to The AP.

The 25th Precinct asked people on Friday to refrain from barbeques and stressed the importance of adhering to strict sanitary practices.

“NYC is going to have nice weather this weekend! BBQs and gatherings are prohibited on Randall’s Island. In addition, the fields will be closed to group play. Please continue to practice social distancing and follow all precautionary measures such as wearing a mask,” the precinct tweeted.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Saturday: “I believe with the warm weather people will come outside. You can’t stay indoors all the time. People will come outside and that’s great, go for a walk. But respect the social distancing and wear a mask.”

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio also made headlines this week after sending police to break up the funeral of a rabbi who died from COVID-19.

“My message to the Jewish community, and all communities, is this simple: the time for warnings has passed,” he tweeted Thursday. “I have instructed the NYPD to proceed immediately to summons or even arrest those who gather in large groups. This is about stopping this disease and saving lives. Period.”

As of Saturday afternoon, New York state had the most confirmed cases of the virus in the U.S. with nearly 313,000, and the most deaths with more than 24,100.

Orange County DA ‘outraged’ after commissioner releases 7 dangerous sex offenders due to COVID-19 restrictions

Orange County, Calif. District Attorney Todd Spitzer stated Saturday that he is “outraged” after the state ordered the release of seven high-risk sex offenders from the county’s jails over concerns they could contract coronavirus.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends Weekend” with host Jason Chaffetz, Spitzer said that the issue at hand is not just in Orange County or California, but “is a ruse that has been pulled on the American public, on jails and custodial facilities all over the nation.”

“We’ve all been told that during the pandemic we needed to release people early, you know, with less than 30 days on their sentence and things like that because of the underlying health pandemic and the fact that we needed to exercise social distancing within the custodial facilities,” he remarked.

“However, as you know, in the United States today there is a social justice agenda to end bail for those who are incarcerated and this has gone too far.

“In other words, in Orange County, our jails now are down by 45 percent in terms of their capacity. Our sheriff has indicated he has no overcrowding problem at all. So, why do our magistrates- in this case, one court commissioner — continue to release people early?”

According to Spitzer’s office, Court Commissioner Joseph Dane ordered the controversial releases of seven high-risk offenders throughout April, despite the men having been charged with tampering with their GPS monitoring devices.

The move prompted the District Attorney’s Office to issue a safety warning to the community this week, highlighting that the men are likely to re-offend.

“These kinds of high-risk sex offenders are the most dangerous kind of criminal and the most likely to re-offend,” Spitzer wrote in a statement. “They are doing everything they can to avoid detection by the parole officers assigned to monitor them so they can potentially commit additional sex offenses. These are not the kind of people who should be getting a break.”

While the issue of coronavirus outbreaks in jammed U.S. prisons has been a cause of concern nationwide in recent weeks, this mandate has proven to be particularly controversial as only a small number of the “non-violent” 3,500 California state prisoners given early release as a result of the virus, officially termed COVID-19, were even tested for the contagion, according to local officials.

Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes also argued in a statement released Wednesday that the jails are not currently overcrowded, social distancing and quarantine measures have been put in place, thus stressing that freeing these inmates was not necessary.

“These inmates were released by court order, and are not in any way connected to the measures I have taken to limit the spread of COVID-19 in the Orange County Jail,” said Barnes. “We have responsibly created the capacity needed in the jail to house sex offenders and other dangerous criminals. I oppose efforts that excuse criminal behavior and jeopardize the safety of our community.”

In profiles documented by the local news affiliates of the newly free men as part of the community warning — their ages range from 27 to 52 — every single one “has a history” of lewd offenses and has violated the law on multiple occasions.

One of the offenders released from jail early has since been charged with exposing himself at a parole resource center, according to a report.

Rudy William Grajeda Magdaleno, 39, was released from jail under a court order on April 13 after serving 71 days of a 180-day minimum sentence, Fox 11 Los Angeles reported Friday.

The sentence was imposed after Magdaleno was accused of failing to charge his GPS monitor.

“In this case, you had seven convicted predator sex offenders who had gone to state prison in California for…hard core serious sex offenses and they were cutting off their GPS devices or failing to charge them,” Spitzer continued. “We had two individuals like this in Orange County before who went out and murdered four women after they cut off their GPS devices.”

“Sex offenders, number one: are not able to be rehabilitable. And, number two: if you’re cutting off your GPS device, you don’t want your parole agent to know where you are. If you’re not charging your GPS device you do not want your parole agent or the community to know where you are,” he pointed out. “It’s dangerous.”

Spitzer also told Chaffetz when tampering with a GPS device, offenders are required to do 180 days minimum in the local jail.

“The appointed commissioner…took it upon his own to release these seven individuals back into the community. And so, it’s outraged our community. It’s outraged our police agency,” he concluded.

Two Texas police officers were critically injured when their helicopter crashed as they were responding to a call early Saturday morning, according to Houston police Chief Art Acevedo.

The officers became trapped inside a department copter after it went down around 2 a.m. near an apartment complex on the north side of the city. The officers had to be extracted by the Houston Fire Department, FOX 26 in Houston reported.

“They literally had to cut the pilots out of the wreckage,” Acevedo told reporters at a news conference soon after the crash. “Trauma surgeons are now working on them. We need prayers for these officers. They’re in pretty bad shape.”

The Indianapolis postal worker shot dead as she delivered mail Monday may have been targeted by a suspect that was upset over not receiving a coronavirus stimulus check, a report said.

Angela Summers, 45, was gunned down Monday on her route near East Michigan Street and North Sherman Drive, police have said.

A day later, Tony Cushingberry, 21, was arrested and charged with fatally shooting Summers in the chest, according to reports.

While police haven’t commented on a possible motive, Paul Toms, the president of the National Association of Letters Carriers told WXIN that Summers and residents at the home where the shooting occurred had past disagreements.

“Yes, there was a history on this for quite a while, as I understand it,” Toms told the outlet. “I want something like this to never happen again. It should never happen.”

Toms said he believes the killing occurred because a person inside the home hadn’t received their check.

Mail delivery to the home, Toms said, was halted for two weeks after Summers left notes at the property asking the owners of a small dog to keep the animal away while she delivered mail, according to the report.

An auspicious moment for officers from the New York Police Department (NYPD) on Thursday was muted by the threat of coronavirus looming over the city.

Dozens of police officers wearing masks sat several feet apart from each other, sans family and friends to cheer them on, in a heavily altered ceremony at the College Point Police Academy.

The ceremony honors officers reaching an elevated rank in the department, including detective, sergeant, lieutenant or inspector — but the usual pomp of events was significantly pared down in an effort to contain the spread of coronavirus in a city that has seen the worst of the pandemic in the entire country.

The usual police band performances and video prelude were removed from the ceremony, and officers raised their right hand in an oath to the department, which was led by New York City Police Commissioner Dermot Shea via video link, doing away with the honor of shaking hands in person.

“Congratulations to all of today’s promotees — well deserved!” Shea said on Twitter after the ceremony. “As we adjust to the new ‘norm,’ the ceremonies are small & socially-distanced, absent families & friends. Today they raise their right hands — tomorrow they rejoin their colleagues on the front line, protecting NYC.”

The ceremony took place in three time slots every hour from 9 a.m. onward to adhere to social distancing rules.

Minneapolis Domino’s employee gives big assist to police by feeding kids for free

The coronavirus crisis has seemingly confirmed the saying that not all heroes wear capes – they wear badges, uniforms, scrubs, stethoscopes or a range of other accoutrements – and maybe some of them make pizzas too, according to police in Minnesota.

Minneapolis Police Department officers were transporting two children out of their home to a sister’s residence earlier this month, the department said, and along the way they learned that neither girl had eaten since the day prior.

So they stopped at the Domino’s Pizza location on Grande Avenue in St. Paul, where they met Kevin Clover, a store employee.

“They spoke with Kevin about the situation,” the department said in a press release. “Kevin didn’t miss a beat and immediately made a meal for the girls, along with plates, utensils and a 2 liter beverage.”

He also refused to take cash from the officers and thanked them instead, police said.

To repay Clover for his actions, Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo surprised him Wednesday by showing up at the pizza place and presenting him with the “Chief’s Award of Merit,” the department said.

The inscription reads, “In grateful acknowledgement of your outstanding contribution to law enforcement and the people we serve.”

Police are searching for an Arizona man who they say was caught on video hitting a 77-year-old woman with a metal pipe during a robbery at a pizza parlor earlier this month.

A graphic video posted by police on Tuesday showed the elderly woman leaving Peter Piper Pizza in Tucson just after 3:45 p.m. When she exited the establishment, the man flung the door open — blocking her path for a brief moment — before striking her with the weapon. He was captured on video running away with a pizza in one hand and the pipe in the other.

The woman was seen holding her head after the encounter, although the station reported that she didn’t go to the hospital.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, 5 feet 6 inches or shorter, with a “wrinkly face,” police said.

“Investigators are asking if anyone witnessed the robbery, or a male fleeing the area with a pizza box, to please call 911. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can call 88-CRIME,” the Tucson Police Department wrote on Facebook.

Police found dozens of bodies being stored in unrefrigerated trucks outside a Brooklyn funeral home and lying on the facility’s floor Wednesday, law enforcement sources told The Post.

Between 40 to 60 bodies were discovered either stacked up in U-Haul box trucks outside Andrew Cleckley Funeral Services in Flatlands or on the building’s floor, after neighbors reported a foul odor around the property, sources said.

NYPD detectives were joined by several other city agencies investigating the trucks at the Utica Avenue facility Wednesday evening, with the section of the street closed off to the public.

A California police officer is under an internal investigation after a viral video showed him allegedly pinning down and punching a 14-year-old teenager for possessing a cigar.

The video, which was posted on Twitter by the boy’s family, showed a Rancho Cordova police officer hitting the teen as he struggles on the ground.

The officer is then seen attempting to turn the boy, who is lying on his back, onto his stomach and then pins his head into the ground. The unidentified officer then punches the boy in his chest before flipping the boy again.

The person who posted the video on Twitter, who identified herself as the teen’s sister, said her brother has a serious heart condition “that could be triggered very easily by being hit in his chest/back.”

“He’s a kid and has never been in any kind of trouble with the law! He was very scared and in so much pain,” a second tweet said.

The video has been viewed nearly 180,000 times.

“It’s important to put video footage into context, especially in relation to a use of force incident,” the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, on behalf of the police department, said in a statement, adding that an investigation into the use of force was underway.

According to the statement, the officer was patrolling the area on Monday due to complaints about hand-to-hand sales of alcohol, tobacco and drugs to minors.

“In this case, the deputy saw what he believed to be a hand-to-hand exchange between an adult and juvenile. As the deputy turned around, he lost sight of the adult, who left the area,” the statement continued. “When the deputy approached the juvenile, the juvenile was uncooperative and refused to give the deputy basic identifying information.”

The teenager told the officer he was 18, according to the statement. When the officer attempted to detain the boy to further investigate the situation, “the juvenile became physically resistive at that time, causing the deputy to lose control of his handcuffs, which landed several feet away.”

After the scuffle caught on camera, the teenager was eventually handcuffed and placed in the back of a patrol car. The officer recovered tobacco products from the 14-year-old, “which is presumably the reason for his resistance.” He was cited and let go.

The teenager, Elijah Tufono, told FOX 40 that he was “reacting like any other normal human being would,” when approached by the police officer.

“It could’ve been better on both of our parts in this situation,” he said.

The teen told the news station the trouble began when he asked a stronger to purchase some tobacco for him and he had it in hand.

“I did lie to him and I didn’t cooperate, and I know that and I made that mistake,” he admitted. “But that didn’t give him no right to do what he did.”

Tufono said he has nothing against the cop who was “just doing his job, I guess.”

“Sir, I’m sorry for the way I acted towards you and for not cooperating. And I just hope that we could meet again and be on better terms,” he said.

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — After months on the run, a mail fraud suspect who lived up to his legal name — Speedy Gonzalez — has been arrested in Georgia.

The 35-year-old Buford man — who shares a name with the fast-running cartoon mouse — was taken into custody Saturday during a traffic stop in Gwinnett County, authorities said.

Police determined Gonzalez was the one who swiped the checks, then visited a Home Depot to buy more than $3,000 worth of merchandise with the funds before returning the items for cash, officials said.

Police identified Gonzalez as a suspect in March, but he managed to elude authorities for another month, with investigators saying he even appeared in Tennessee before he was caught over the weekend.

Gonzalez was booked into jail on charges of forgery, identity theft and theft by deception.

The suspect also has outstanding warrants in another Georgia county and in Alabama on similar counts, news outlets reported.

It’s unclear whether he has an attorney who can comment on his behalf.
