Police in Phoenix, Ariz., arrested 16 people Friday night during a protest of planned sweeps by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Authorities said a group of protesters blocked a downtown street and disrupted light rail traffic outside the local ICE office. KSAZ reported that a small number of people did not clear the roadway and the light rail tracks when they were asked, prompting the arrests.

In all, 14 people were accused of unlawful assembly and obstructing a public thoroughfare, while two were charged with aggravated assault on a police officer.

No injuries were reported and the protesters dispersed around 11:00 p.m.

The Phoenix protest was one of a number of demonstrations ahead of Sunday’s planned immigration operations. Earlier Friday, protesters demonstrating outside an ICE facility in Aurora, Colo. pulled down the American flag and raised the flag of Mexico in its place

On Saturday, several thousand protesters marched through downtown Chicago, many of them carrying  placards with messages including “No kids in cages” and “Abolish ICE.” Some also belted chants critical of Trump.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says the protest was peaceful and that there were no arrests. He says there were an estimated 5,000 protesters at its peak.

Armed man shot, killed by Washington police after throwing incendiary devices at ICE detention center

Westlake Legal Group 0714fbf5-Northwest-detention-center-Google-Maps Armed man shot, killed by Washington police after throwing incendiary devices at ICE detention center Sam Dorman fox-news/us/us-regions/west/washington fox-news/us/immigration/illegal-immigrants fox-news/us/immigration/enforcement fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox news fnc/us fnc article 56afc105-8234-500f-a45a-3a0f1430725e

Police in Washington state say an armed man was shot and killed early Saturday after trying to attack a local Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center.

The Seattle Times reported that the unidentified man appeared outside of the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma with a rifle and threw incendiary devices at both the facility and nearby propane tanks.

Officers responded to the incident around 4 a.m. and called out to the man before shots were fired. It was not clear how many shots were fired or whether the man fired at police.

SOME DEMOCRATS GIVE TIPS TO MIGRANTS ON HOW TO AVOID ICE DEPORTATIONS

Police spokesman Loretta Cool said the officers weren’t wearing body cameras, but the area is covered by surveillance cameras from the detention center. The four officers involved were placed on administrative leave in accordance with the department’s policy.

The shooting took place hours after a rally in front of the detention center to protest planned mass deportation raids around the country. The Tacoma facility, which is run by the Department of Homeland Security, holds migrants pending deportation proceedings. The detention center has also held immigration-seeking parents separated from their children under President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy, an effort meant to deter illegal immigration.

ANTI-ICE PROTESTERS PULL DOWN AMERICAN FLAG, RAISE MEXICAN FLAG, VANDALIZE ‘BLUE LIVES MATTER’ FLAG

GEO Group, which runs the 1,575-bed Northwest Detention Center, in an email to The Associated Press said baseless accusations about how detainees are treated at its facilities “have led to misplaced aggression and a dangerous environment for our employees, whose safety is our top priority. Violence of any kind against our employees and property will not be tolerated. We are thankful for the quick and brave action by the Tacoma Police Department, which prevented innocent lives from being endangered.”

GEO Group said the detention center in Tacoma has modern amenities with air conditioning, recreational activities, a bed for every individual and medical care available at all hours.

Last year, a federal judge ruled that Washington state could pursue its lawsuit seeking to force GEO Group to pay minimum wage for work done by detainees at the detention center.

The planned raids come me at a time of intense scrutiny surrounding ICE and the treatment of migrants at detention centers. The administration’s child separation policy was the subject of a contentious Congressional hearing Friday, during which former ICE director Tom Homan vehemently defended law enforcement amid criticism from Democratic politicians.

“As a 34-year veteran of law enforcement, it is shocking, shocking to see constant attacks against those that leave the safety and security of their homes every day, put on a Kevlar vest and put a gun on their hip and risk their own safety to defend this nation,” he said, at times appearing to get choked up as he defended his former colleagues.

While President Trump and others have defended immigration authorities, some Democrats have called to either restrict federal funding for ICE or abolish the agency outright.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., for example, said on Thursday that she and her colleagues still supported defunding ICE. She and other freshmen, like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., tried blocking funding for ICE and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in June, accusing authorities of “killing innocent children.”

Pennsylvania police in hours-long standoff with man standing on top of old blast furnace

Westlake Legal Group bethlehem-steelstacks-Google-Maps Pennsylvania police in hours-long standoff with man standing on top of old blast furnace fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/pennsylvania fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox news fnc/us fnc David Aaro article 399f08cf-f417-5b14-ab58-be00c5114198

A man has been perched atop an old blast furnace in Pennsylvania, hundreds of feet in the air for more than 17 hours as a police crisis team continues to talk him down on Saturday morning.

The unidentified man reportedly decided to climb up the large furnace in the SteelStacks campus in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania on Friday night as people were getting ready to enjoy a free concert. Authorities canceled the show as well as another concert in the nearby ArtsQuest building.

The man has been seen shouting and raising his arms throughout the ongoing negotiations, according to The Morning Call.

The SteelStacks campus where the furnace is located has remained closed and Bethlehem police have asked the public to stay away from the area as emergency personnel works to resolve the situation.

Bethlehem police Chief, Mark DiLuzio, said officers were called to the area at 6:52 on Friday where they saw the man taking up position on a single steel beam, according to The Morning Call. They asked the public for help in identifying the man on Friday night, but as of now remained unsuccessful.

DiLuzio said officers tried to climb up the large furnace on Friday, eventually reaching a platform below where they attempted to converse with him.

Concertgoers had assembled on the nearby Levitt Pavilion lawn on Friday, as police walked through the crowd asking them to raise their hand if they knew who the man was.

“I’ve never seen anything like this before,” said concert attendee Nahum Molina.

It’s not clear why he decided to climb the furnace, but the Morning Call reported the man first appeared to be taking photos until he gained more attention from the crowds around him.

“The more people looked at him, the more animated he became,” bystander Dave Gilfoil told the newspaper.

Photos were taken of the man on Saturday morning attempting to wave off a drone and his movements were reported as being lethargic and slow.

Another man climbed the same furnaces back in 2012, where he told police he did it to get a photo.

Teen who died had pointed fake gun at police, officer’s bodycam footage suggests

Police in Southern California released body camera footage after a 17-year-old driver was killed during a freeway traffic stop this week.

The teen’s vehicle had sped past Fullerton police Cpl. Scott Flynn, who attempted a traffic stop on an Anaheim freeway July 5, authorities say in the video. The driver then allegedly slammed into the officer’s patrol vehicle on purpose and made an abrupt U-turn facing the wrong way, Fullerton police public information officer Lt. Jon Radus said. Flynn requested backup.

The teen then exited her car and aimed what the officer perceived to be a firearm. It was later determined to be an exact replica of a Beretta 92 FS handgun.

WARNING: GRAPHIC VIDEO

In the footage, the teen is heard pleading for help after Flynn shoots her in the chest. Flynn and a Good Samaritan hurry to help the girl while other officers arrive to help.

She was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.

“Please keep in mind this is an initial review, and our understanding of this incident could possibly change as additional evidence is collected, analyzed and reviewed,” Fullerton Police Chief Bob Dunn said of the footage.

Anti-ICE protesters pull down American flag, raise Mexico flag, vandalize ‘Blue Lives Matter’ flag

Authorities in Colorado restored an American flag to its place Friday evening after protesters demonstrating outside a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility pulled down the star-spangled banner and flew the flag of Mexico in its place.

The protesters also removed a “Blue Lives Matter” flag, honoring law enforcement, spray-painted it with the words “Abolish ICE,” then raised the flag upside-down, on a pole next to the Mexican flag, according to local media.

BUCK SEXTON: DEMS’ OBJECTION TO PLANNED ICE RAIDS A STEP TOWARD ‘MASS NULLIFICATION OF IMMIGRATION LAW’

Hundreds of protesters had gathered in Aurora, Colo., outside the federal facility that holds illegal immigrants, to protest ICE raids scheduled to begin Sunday in Denver and other major U.S. cities, FOX 31 Denver reported.

Aurora police Chief Nick Metz said the majority of protesters remained peaceful and some even thanked officers for their evening efforts.

The protest, part of a network of #LightsForLiberty events, also dubbed the “March to Close Concentration Camps,” called for detention centers at the U.S.-Mexico border to be closed and for all immigrants being held in those locations to be granted entry to the U.S., according to the event’s Facebook page.

Beginning Sunday, ICE agents will reportedly work to round up thousands of illegal immigrants across the U.S.

President Trump delayed the operation by two weeks to allow Dems to propose a bipartisan solution to the humanitarian crisis at the border.

Speaking to Fox News during his visit to the border Friday, Vice President Mike Pence said the upcoming ICE raids will not be done at random and will be focused on “removing those deported by courts.”

Besides Denver, the raids were expected to take place in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and San Francisco. Raids scheduled for New Orleans may be delayed due to Tropical Storm Barry, KCNC reported. Other #LightsForLiberty protests took place across the U.S. Friday, including in San Ysidro, Calif.; Portland, Ore.; and New York City.

South Carolina deputy saves choking 12-day-old infant after stopping speeding vehicle

A South Carolina sheriff’s deputy is being hailed as a hero after a dramatic video showed how his quick thinking saved the life of a 12-day-old baby girl last month.

Deputy W. Kimbro with the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office pulled a vehicle over on June 11 in the Summerville area for speeding. After the car stopped, one of the passengers exited and explained to Kimbro that they were rushing a small infant to hospital after she was found choking and had stopped breathing.

Kimbro immediately jumped into action, “Let me have the baby.”

In the footage released Thursday, the deputy was captured on his own body cam feeling for a pulse before beginning to massage 12-day-old Riley’s chest. He attempts to open the child’s airway by lifting her neck and inserting his finger in her mouth.

“As long as she’s crying like that she’s breathing,” he can be heard saying

According to the girl’s mother, the infant was in her bassinet sleeping when she went to go take a shower. The woman’s stepmother alerted her when she said that the baby was choking on what might have been milk.

“Her lips are a little blue, I’m worried about her circulation,” Kimbro could be heard telling another deputy.

“Come on, come on baby. She’s breathing as long as she’s crying like that she’s breathing but I’m worried about her because it looks like she’s going in and out,” he continued.

The infant can be seen making small movements and crying every so often but there is one point in the video where she appears to stop moving altogether.

“I didn’t feel a heartbeat earlier so I started massaging her heart and now I feel it’s real strong now,” Kimbro told the worried mother.

EMS arrived on the scene shortly after and took over.

“Because of Deputy Kimbro’s steadfast, professional and heroic response, the 12-day old baby was able to live. Please join us in congratulating Deputy Kimbro for his gallant actions that prolonged human life,” the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post.

Deputy Kimbro was awarded the “Life-Saving Medal” for his actions.

New York police, prosecutors point fingers after Jeffrey Epstein skipped court-mandated check-ins

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6058101219001_6058094791001-vs New York police, prosecutors point fingers after Jeffrey Epstein skipped court-mandated check-ins Vandana Rambaran fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/us/crime fox-news/us fox-news/person/jeffrey-epstein fox news fnc/us fnc d61c2efa-8f6e-5b84-86e2-73b175c075e5 article

The New York Police Department and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.’s office are both denying responsibility for enforcing Jeffrey Epstein’s court-mandated check-ins as a registered Level 3 sex offender.

The financier was required to register as a sex offender in New York almost three years after a controversial nonprosecution plea deal in Miami in 2008 resulted in an 18-month sentence for solicitation of prostitution involving an underage victim. (He served just 13 months of that sentence.)

EPSTEIN PLEA DEAL CASTS LIGHT ON MANHATTAN DA CYRUS VANCE’S ROLE

Under the 1996 Sex Offender Registration Act, Epstein should have appeared at the NYPD’s Sex Offender Monitoring Unit, in the Manhattan criminal courthouse, every 90 days to verify his address and have his photo periodically renewed for the online database.

Epstein failed to keep that appointment at least 34 times, according to reports by the New York Post, and was never arrested for noncompliance despite it being a felony punishable by up to four years in prison for a first offense — up to seven years for subsequent violations.

The chief of detectives of the NYPD, Dermot Shea, told Fox News on Thursday that “before his legally mandated first check-in, he [Epstein] changed his residence to the Virgin Islands, requiring monitoring to take place in that jurisdiction, not in New York.”

But then came an explosive hearing in 2011, when a sex crimes prosecutor from Vance’s office pleaded with federal Justice Ruth Pickholz to downgrade Epstein from a Level 3 offender to the lowest possible classification, Level 1. The judge found Epstein’s change of address insufficient to exempt him from checking in with New York law enforcement, as required for Level 3 offenders.

The judge ruled that Epstein, who owns homes in both Palm Beach, Fla., and Manhattan, “may have to come here every 90 days,” from the Virgin Islands, or “give up his New York home if he does not want to come every 90 days,” according to court transcripts.

Epstein did not check in any time after his hearing, Det. Sophia Mason, a police spokeswoman, told The Washington Post.

The NYPD did not respond to a request for comment from Fox News.

“The NYPD – which is the agency responsible for monitoring SORA compliance – has repeatedly told us that Mr. Epstein was in full compliance with the law,” Danny Frost, a spokesperson for Vance’s office, told Fox News on Thursday. “Our office vigorously prosecutes all failure-to-verify cases.”

Epstein, 66, pleaded not guilty Monday to additional sex trafficking and conspiracy charges brought against him this week after he was arrested at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey on Saturday.

The financier allegedly created and maintained a “vast network” and operation from 2002 “up to and including” at least 2005 that enabled him to “sexually exploit and abuse dozens” of girls, in addition to paying victims to recruit other female minors.

“Jeffrey Epstein is in jail because of the hard work of NYPD detectives and our law enforcement partners who built a strong case and arrested him for his vile crimes,” Shea told Fox News. “The NYPD follows the same protocol for every sex offender referred to us pursuant to state laws. NYPD detectives are relentless: if you are a sex offender, we will find you.”

Mom of teen accused of killing Nashville officer in crash releases apology letter

The mother of a teenage girl charged in a car crash that killed a Tennessee police officer on the Fourth of July has released a letter to the officer’s family and the family of her daughter’s passenger, who was seriously injured in the crash.

The mother of Jayona Brown, 17, wrote to Metro Nashville police officer John Anderson’s family on Monday: “I can’t imagine the pain and sorrow your entire family must feel during this difficult time.”

Brown’s attorney, Michie Gibson, told Fox News Tuesday that the teen snuck out of her mom’s home early on July 4 with her aunt’s 2016 Ford Fusion.

Metro Nashville Police said an officer tried to pull Brown over but she took off and crashed into Officer Anderson’s patrol vehicle after running a flashing red traffic light, killing him.

Police said Brown was driving without a license. The teen 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.

Gibson told Fox News that “sincere sorrow for the family” is what prompted Brown’s mother to send the letter.

He added, “A person who was just serving and protecting the community, an innocent victim, was killed, is the mother’s concern.”

Anderson, a four-year veteran of the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (MNPD) and a father of an 18-month-old son, was heading to a nearby highway to assist a fellow officer with a pedestrian who was reported to have been in a traffic lane waving his arms, police said.

On Monday, The Metro Nashville Police Department tweeted that the police chief “presented the Medal of Valor, the MNPD’s highest honor, to Officer John Anderson’s family.”

Alabama man arrested after biting off woman’s finger, police allege

Police in Alabama said they arrested a man early Sunday morning after he bit off a woman’s finger during a fight.

Lt. Michael Johnson with the Huntsville Police Department told Fox News police got a call about a “physical altercation” between Shay Michael Thome, 48, and his wife, who was threatening to leave.

Johnson said the couple reported there’d been some “tension” in their relationship and Thome’s wife was in the process of gathering her stuff to leave when the incident happened. Police said the couple was arguing for a couple of days prior to the fight but she did not report any domestic violence to police in the days prior to that night.

Johnson told Fox News that Thome came home while his wife’s friend was helping her gather her belongings. He said Thome grabbed her friend’s hand and bit off her pinky finger.

Police said Thome then started “assaulting” the friend “with his fists.” Johnson said Thome’s wife came running into the room and was trying to get him off her friend when he bit his wife’s hand as well. Johnson said Thome “did not cause a serious injury” to his wife.

Thome’s wife and her friend eventually got away, Johnson said, adding that Thome then grabbed a gun and busted out a glass door using his “gun as a tool to show his anger” as his wife was trying to leave. Johnson said his wife was cut by the shattered glass.

Johnson said her friend then called 911.

The friend was transported to the hospital. Johnson said Thome spit out the friend’s pinky after he bit it off and an officer later found it in the living room. He said officers brought her pinky to the hospital but “doctors were unable to reattach it” when the friend underwent surgery.

“This is probably one of the most unique assaults we have ever seen,” Johnson told Fox News, calling the incident “wild.”

Thome faced felony assault charges and Johnson said he could face more domestic violence charges.

Thome remained in custody in the Madison County Jail, according to Johnson.

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.
