DO POLICE LIVES MATTER?
25 year old New York City police officer Brian Moore was shot in the face Saturday night in Queens, NY. The shooting occurred at about 6:15 PM when Moore and his partner, Officer Erik Jansen, approached a “person of interest” near the intersection of 212th Street and 104th Road in the Queens Village neighborhood. According to reports, as Moore and Jansen, approached the individual in an unmarked car, the man adjusted his waist band and then took out a gun and started firing at the police officers, hitting Moore in the face. Neither officer had time to return fire as the gunman fled on foot. According to police sources, Officer Brian Moore was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center and rushed into surgery where he was said to be in critical, but stable condition.
Where are the police riots to protest “Do Police Lives Matter”?
NYPD officer Brian Moore
A police officer was critically injured after being shot in the face Saturday night in Queens, according to reports.
NYPD Officer Brian Moore, 25, was rushed into surgery at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he’s in critical but stable condition, according to NBC New York.
NBC reported that Moore and his partner, Erik Jansen, were in an unmarked car, approaching a person of interest, when the man started adjusting his waist band. The man took out a gun and fired into the car, striking Moore, according to NBC.
The Daily News reported Moore was shot in the cheek and quoted a source as saying the bullet “came out the other side.”
Moore, according to reports, was in a medically induced coma as of this morning.
Blackwell was arrested inside a house about 90 minutes after the early-evening shooting on a block he resided on near the crime scene, Bratton said. A weapon hasn’t been recovered.
The police-involved shooting, the fifth in as many months in New York, initially evoked fears of the December ambush of two uniformed police officers killed while sitting in their patrol car in Brooklyn. In that case, the shooter had posted on Instagram that he was planning to assassinate two “pigs.”
But Bratton said Saturday that a preliminary investigation indicates that Blackwell, 35, made no such postings but has an extensive criminal history, including an arrest for possession of a weapon.
“It was quite clear that they were police officers,” he said.
The two officers, both with about four years on the job, were assigned to an anti-crime unit.
Before Blackwell was found, police flooded the normally quiet residential neighborhood where the shooting occurred. Teams of officers could be seen walking on roofs, searching house-by-house and peering into backyards and under cars with flashlights.
Blackwell, who occasionally stayed with relatives in the area, fled the scene after the shooting — but was captured 90 minutes later inside a neighbor’s house.
“He jumped over the fence and put the gun in his pants,” said a witness who asked to remain anonymous. “He ran down the street. The police came and we showed them where he ran.”
A 19-year-old man who lives in the 212th Place home said the suspect showed up as if he didn’t have a care in the world.
The teen didn’t realize Blackwell was the suspect until cops rushed to the house, ordered out his family members and then led away the career criminal in cuffs.
“The way he was acting I didn’t think he would do anything like that,” the neighbor told the Daily News, declining to give his name. “I’m mad upset. If I knew, he wouldn’t be in my house.”
Officers were still scouring the scene early Sunday in search of the gun.
Blackwell has nine prior arrests — including two separate assaults on police officers, sources said. Once in custody he immediately “asked for his mom and a lawyer,” a source said.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Calls Charges Against 6 Baltimore Police Officers in the Death of Freddie Gray … “It’s a Miscarriage of Justice”
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke calls the charges against the 6 Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie by States Attorney Marilyn Mosby “a Miscarriage of Justice.” Sheriff David Clarke called her a neophyte and stated that she did it for political reasons to appease the mob.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke (D) declared the charges brought against six police officers in the death of Freddie Gray “George Zimmerman and the Duke Lacrosse case all over again” and said “these cops are political prisoners,” offered up as human sacrifices, thrown like red meat to an angry mob” on Friday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel.
Clarke said of the charges, “it’s a miscarriage of justice. This neophyte prosecutor stood up there and made a political statement, Neil, and I say that because she’s chanting or voicing some of the chants from this angry mob. Her job is to tune that out. She said, I hear the voices. She’s not supposed to hear anything as she reviews this case that is not consistent with the rule of law and our system of justice. Look, I’m an experienced and a veteran homicide detective. I’ve had — I’ve participated in charging conferences. There is no way I have ever gotten a criminal charge within 24 hours after taking over all the reports and evidence to a prosecutor. A prosecutor who is thorough needs several days to sift through hundreds of pages of reports. They usually want to interview some of the witnesses themselves, in person, and they have to sift through all of the evidence, piece by piece, and they have to wait for some of the forensics evidence to conclude, to come back and that’s why I say on a minimum, three to four days. She just got this case yesterday. This is political activism. She’ll never prove this beyond a reasonable doubt, and I’m not going to silently stand by and watch my brother officers, offered up as human sacrifices, thrown like red meat to an angry mob, just to appease this angry mob.” And that “she rushed this thing through.”
Florida Police Investigate Whether Kiss Exchanged By 7 Year Old Classmates Was “Unnatural And Lascivious”
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … I HOPE THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS HAS RUN OUT BETWEEN MY KISS WITH HEIDI UNDER THE PIANO IN 3RD GRADE …
Has this country lost it’s collective ever-loving mind? As reported at The Smoking Gun, the Florida police actually investigated a kiss, OMG on the lips, between two 7 year old elementary school classmates. Get this, the police were trying to determine whether the act amounted to “lewd and lascivious” behavior. Head shaking, simply head shaking. What happened to the country I grew up in when a Johnny kissed Susie was simply Johnny kissing Susie? The idea that anyone would think that two 7 year old’s kissing was a “lewd and lascivious” act needs their heads and dirty minds examined.
Maybe the police would like to focus their efforts on investigations of lewd acts when an adult perpetrates it on a child or there is at least some kind of evil or criminal intent, not a simple kiss between children.
Florida police last week investigated whether a kiss exchanged by seven-year-old elementary students amounted to “lewd and lascivious” behavior, according to an incident report.
Responding to “allegations” that the children kissed “on the lips” during class last Tuesday, a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputy was dispatched to the school to investigate, according to the report, which includes a charge description as “unnatural and lascivious.”
The report, which contains redactions, does not indicate the source of the kissing “allegations.”
Deputy April Culbreath reported speaking with a teacher who “witnessed the incident.” Thereafter, Culbreath concluded that there was “no indication that there was anything sexual about this incident” and no evidence that Florida state law had been violated.
Sorry, but are you telling me that if it was two 11 or 12 year old’s it would be considered “unnatural and lascivious.”
CNN’s Rachel Nichols, ESPN’s Michelle Beadle & USA Today writer Martin Rogers Media Credentials Denied by Mayweather’s Promotion Company … All 3 Have Been at the Forefront of Reporting in Mayweather’s History of Domestic Violence
YET ANOTHER REASON WHY I WOULD NEVER PAY FOR THIS FIGHT OE GIVE FLOYD MAYWEATHER A DIME OF MY MONEY …
Imagine that, boxing gets another black eye. Prior to the Mayeather-Pacquiao, three journalists, CNN’s Rachel Nichols, ESPN/HBO’s Michelle Beadle and USA Today writer Martin Rogers have all had their media credentials revoked from tonight’s fight by the Mayweather promotion team. What do all three have in common? They have all been critical and at the forefront of reporting on the domestic violence past of Floyd Mayweather. What class. Mayweather has been convicted 5 times for domestic violence.
What is truly sad, is that Mayweather’s history of abusing woman and history of domestic violence has not hurt the hype of this fight.
I so hope that Manny Pacquiao knocks Mayweather’s block off.
Whether Floyd Mayweather or his promotion company is/was/isn’t/wasn’t banning journalists from covering Saturday’s fight against Manny Pacquiao remains to be sorted out.
CNN’s Rachel Nichols and ESPN’s Michelle Beadle both said as much on Twitter on Saturday morning, only to have a Mayweather spokesperson dispute that and say both are credentialed and blaming the issue mostly to confusion. Beadle, for instance, never applied under ESPN and was part of a block from HBO, which is a business partner of Pacquiao’s.
As with everything in boxing, things are tribal and confusing. We’ll see what’s the truth eventually. Personally, I’m taking whatever Rachel Nichols, in particular, says to the bank.
Also uncertain is the fate of USA Today writer Martin Rogers, whose credential situation has likewise been up in the air this week, although there were procedural and deadline issues with his request.
All three have covered or commented on Mayweather’s lengthy history of domestic abuse allegations, including his two-month stint in the Clark County Detention Center in 2012. Rogers previously wrote for Yahoo Sports, where he, and the rest of the staff, wrote extensively about the issue.
Below is the Rachel Nichols interview with Floyd Mayweather on Domestic Violence
UPDATE I: Last minute back tracking by Mayweather promotions Team after negative press on media credentials being pulled.
Mayweather’s people say it was a misunderstand. BS!
Kelly Swanson, a media relations spokesperson for the Mayweather camp, denied that Nichols and Beadle has lost their credentials.
Later Saturday, Beadle said via Twitter that she was told Friday she was not credentialed and left Las Vegas. She said HBO was able to get her credential approved late Friday night.
Swanson told USA Today: “I’ll take it as a misunderstanding. But Rachel Nichols was never banned from the event. She’s been credentialed the whole time.”
She added: “We didn’t even know until late afternoon who was going to be in the arena. CNN received one seat in the arena, and it was up to them to pick who could go in the arena. We could not make that selection. We let those producers decide who they wanted in that seat. She’s always had a credential.”
OTL Discussion: Floyd Mayweather’s History of Domestic Violence
NFL’s Benjamin Watson Facebook Post on Baltimore Riots: ‘I See a Brokenness That Only Christ Can Give Us Wisdom and Power to Mend’
Some amazing and reflective words from the NFL’s New Orleans Saints Tight End Benjamin Watson …
On reflecting on the riots in Baltimore, Christian professional football player Benjamin Watson wrote, “I see a brokenness that only Christ can give us the wisdom and power to mend.”
Commenting on the devastating violence that took place on Monday in Baltimore, outspoken Christian professional football player Benjamin Watson explained that the pain, anger and tension that the city and its residents are experiencing can only be healed through the power of Christ.
Watson noted that Baltimore is not the first city to go through a violent uprising over police negligence, and likely won’t be the last. He further asserted that the problems Baltimore faces right now are shared by the nation as a whole.
NFL’s Benjamin Watson Talks About Baltimore Riots On Greta Van Sustern
We have major problems as a nation. Yesterday Ferguson burned. Tonight ?#?Baltimore? burns. Tomorrow it will be another city in our homeland. Watching the coverage I’m hearing yet another version of a nauseatingly familiar narrative. Violence by police reciprocated by violence by the community, reciprocated by violence by police reciprocated by…. It seems fruitless to continue to analyze, condemn, and respond to these dreadful episodes. “Frustration, anger, tension boiling over, upset and unfortunate” are words we hear from Baltimore residents. When it comes to law enforcement, race, poverty, education, immigration we always talk about fixing “broken” systems. We resolve to legislate for education, job creation, and systemic overhaul. These are helpful and definitely needed BUT we have done all of these things ad nauseum and look at us!! Without a change of heart these attempts fail us. So what can we say? What can we do? Systems are broken because people are broken and if systems are fixed without hearts being changed the result will be a legalistic attempt that will lack long term results. Our problems are wholistic and common to the human heart. Hatred, prejudice, exploitation, pride, self righteousness, secrecy, and rebellion, manifest itself in the explosions we’ve seen over the last year, the last century, and the last millennia.
Tonight I see so much entrenched pain without remedy. Most are handling it without violence while a few are committing the unacceptable.
Tonight I see young children, asking like my daughter did earlier, “What’s happening daddy”, in desperate need of parents to walk them through these disturbing scenes.
Tonight I see “smoke,” but we must address the fire. The response that we are watching is just “smoke” from years of hopelessness. After each situation the more I am convinced that the love of God for our fellow brothers and sisters who were created in His image, is our only hope for reconciliation. But the only way we can even see him that way is if God illuminates our view and changes our thought process. I’m not talking about holding hands and singing. Love is an action that compels one to treat another with dignity and respect even if they don’t deserve it. It pushes for education and opportunities for those in poverty. It gives identity and self worth. It administers justice without abuse. It honors authority and promotes peace. It is not weak, but strong for what is right!
Tonight I see a brokenness that only Christ can give us the wisdom and power to mend.
We pray for every disaster that happens to us. Bombings, natural disasters, cancer and outbreaks. What we’ve seen in our country lately deserves that same attention. Our attempts to fix this have fallen short.
We, and most importantly, the body of Christ, must stand for justice in all areas, for all people. We must set the standard for the correct way to treat people.
Tonight I pray for the pastors, leaders, police and community of Baltimore.
Tonight I ?#?PrayForAmerica?.

According to a recent AP-GfK Poll, Hillary Rodham Clinton is lacking in being inspiring, likable and of course honesty. One has to wonder what qualifies her to be president of the United States and why people would vote for her with these 3 strikes against her.
What difference does it make what you think
Americans appear to be suspicious of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s honesty, and even many Democrats are only lukewarm about her presidential candidacy, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll.
Is she strong and decisive? Yes, say a majority of people. But inspiring and likable? Only a minority think so.
Clinton’s struggles to explain her email practices while in government, along with questions about the Clinton Foundation and Republican criticism of her openness, wealth and trustworthiness seem to have struck a nerve in the public’s perception of the dominant Democratic figure in the 2016 campaign. In the survey, 61 percent said “honest” describes her only slightly well or not at all.
Nearly four in 10 Democrats, and more than six in 10 independents agreed that “honest” was not the best word for her.
Even so, she is viewed more favorably than her potential Republican rivals, none of whom are as well-known as the former secretary of state, senator and first lady.

WATCH A 6TH GRADER DO WHAT ADULT MEDIA INTERVIEWERS REFUSE TO …
This post should be subtitled, ‘Out of the Mouths of Babes’ or ‘Kids say the Darndest Things.’ In the VIDEO, 6th grader Osman Yahya cuts off President Barack Obama while interviewing him. CLASSIC!!! Like Obama does in all media interviews, he rambles on and on and on in order to run the clock out so he can only be asked so many questions. However, when in the case of the liberal and not-so liberal MSM, they are too cowardly to interrupt Obama and have him actually stick to the question for fear of being chastised and called disrespectful. When you are a 6th grader, that is never a concern.Wow, does this make this 6th grader a racist?
Watch and enjoy. The MSM should take notes.
EXIT QUESTION: Will 6th grader Osman Yahya be the first middle-schooler ever to be audited by the IRS?
“Mr. President, let’s move on to the next question,” is not something you hear that often in Washington, especially not on friendly panel discussions. But Osman Yahya is not your typical presidential interviewer; he’s a sixth-grader.
President Obama sat down with a group of students Thursday to talk about a new initiative to get more kids to read, but the Maryland middle schooler stole the show with a brisk demeanor and pointed questions. His decision to cut off one of Obama’s characteristically long-winded answers won plaudits on social media.
When a student asked Obama to explain how he gets writer’s block, Yahya asked him to first explain what writer’s block is. When a second-grade class asked the president whether he enjoyed reading, Yahya pointed out that the president had already answered that question and moved along to the next question. When the president began to wax poetic about his love for reading, Osman stopped him. “I think you’ve sort of covered everything about that question,” said Yahya, a student at Bennett Middle School in Salisbury, Md.
