Police Detective Benjamin Marconi, RIP
A Texas detective was shot and killed while writing a traffic ticket outside of police headquarters late Sunday morning. Later Sunday, two other officers were wounded in incidents in Florida and Missouri.
San Antonio Police Chief William McManus identified the slain officer as 20-year veteran Detective Benjamin Marconi, 50. He said the suspect has not yet been apprehended, and a motive is not known.
McManus said Marconi had pulled over a car for a traffic violation outside Public Safety Headquarters in downtown. While Marconi was inside his squad car writing a ticket, a black vehicle pulled up behind him and the driver got out, walked up to the detective’s window and shot him in the head, McManus said. Then the suspect reached into the window and shot Marconi a second time, he said.
“This type of crime cannot and will not be tolerated. I ask for the community’s thoughtfulness and patience as the investigation continues and SAPD searches for the suspect,” she said.
McManus said the suspect is a black male around 5 feet 7 inches to 6 feet tall in height, wearing a gray sweatshirt and black baggy pants. The suspect also has a beard, KENS reported.
San Antonio police released an image of the vehicle that was seen leaving the scene, as well as a person of interest who they said may have information in the shooting.
Crime Stoppers in San Antonio is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to an arrest of the suspect.
UPDATE II: Four police officers shot in US cities.
How did we get to a point in the United States where such a thing could happen. There was a time in this country where randomly shooting a police officer would be considered unheard of, and it was not all that long ago.
One policeman was shot dead and three others shot and wounded in four US cities on Sunday, coinciding with an epidemic of racially-tinged gun violence involving law enforcement.
Police were shot in San Antonio, Texas, Sanibel, Florida, and in the Missouri cities of St. Louis and Gladstone, local police departments said.
There was no known connection between the shootings.
In San Antonio, authorities were hunting for a suspect who fatally shot 20-year service veteran Detective Benjamin Marconi twice in the head after being pulled over in traffic in front of police department headquarters.
A police officer in Sanibel, on the picturesque island of the same name off the Florida coast, was shot and wounded during a “routine” traffic stop, officials said.
The suspect, who has been arrested, drove by and shot the officer after he had stopped another driver, Sanibel Police Chief Bill Tomlinson was quoted as saying.
In St. Louis, a suspect shot a police sergeant through his rolled up window as he sat in a marked police car in slow traffic.
In western Missouri, another police officer was shot in Gladstone but was expected to live, the Kansas City Fraternal Order of Police said on Twitter. The condition of the suspect was unknown.
50 Year Tracy Briley Arrested for Performing Oral Sex on a Woman Lying Down on a Florida Beach Boardwalk
YIKES, JUST YIKES … ITS A FAR CRY THESE DAYS AT THE BEACH FROM FRANKIE AVALON AND ANNETTE FUNICELLO!!!
Just when you thought you saw it all, 50 year old Tracy Briley was arrested in Florida and charged with a felony lewd and lascivious exhibition after he was was caught performing oral sex on a woman lying down on a Florida beach boardwalk. Talk about giving “Beach Blanket Bingo” a bad name. In an act of desperation and bizarre brilliance, when confronted Briley told the police he was an “emergency responder and had to assist the female as it was his duty.” Good grief, sure he did. There was no report of what ailed the female he was responding to. UNREAL!!!
A man spotted yesterday afternoon performing oral sex on a woman lying down on a Florida beach boardwalk told cops that he was an “emergency responder and had to assist the female as it was his duty,” according to a criminal complaint.
A Treasure Island Police Department officer found Tracy Briley, 50, with his shorts at his ankles and “penis out in plain view” around 1 PM Wednesday. Briley, the cop noted, “was performing cunnilingus on a female subject laying on the beach boardwalk.”
Briley, seen at right, told the officer that he was homeless and “had nowhere else to have sex except in public.”
A witness told police that he (and his three-year-old grandson) “observed the act of cunnilingus.”
Colorado ACLU Board Member: Shoot Trump Voters ‘Before Election Day’ … From the LIB who Called Trump a Hate Speech Felon
JUST CURIOUS, HOW DO YOU THINK THE MSM WOULD REACT IF DONALD TRUMP OR ANY REPUBLICAN MADE SUCH A COMMENT?
Isn’t it the unhinged, lunatic LEFT that is against guns and gun violence? Hmm, then why would Loring Wirbel, board member of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Colorado chapter and co-chair of the ACLU’s Colorado Springs chapter, call for supporters of GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be shot before they vote for the billionaire businessman? Where is the liberal tolerance? Where’s the love? Better than that, this moron calls Trump a hate speech felon and yet is calling for people to shoot people in the process, seriously? Who’s the felon?
Isn’t the liberal left double standard of intolerance remarkable? These are the folks that rail about free speech, yet they look to prevent Donald Trump from having his. Then this is the same bunch that look to take the guns away from law abiding citizens while they make threats of gun violence and call for voters to be shot. Unreal and SICK!
Loring Wirbel, board member of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Colorado chapter and co-chair of the ACLU’s Colorado Springs chapter, called for supporters of GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be shot before they vote for the billionaire businessman.
Comparing Trump to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels, Wirbel wrote in his Facebook page:
The thing is, we have to really reach out to those who might consider voting for Trump and say, “This is Goebbels. This is the final solution. If you are voting for him I will have to shoot you before election day.” They’re not going to listen to reason, so when justice is gone, there’s always force, as Laurie would say.
Just curious, how is one allowed to make such a threat like this and a call for violence? Sorry, this goes beyond free speech.

Tony Torrez charged with murder, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon in the road rage murder of 4 year old Lilly Garcia.
32 year old Tony Torrez was arrested Wednesday and according to police has confessed to the road rage shooting that resulted in the death of 4 year old Lilly Garcia. Tony Torrez has been charged with murder, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, assault with the intent to commit a violent felony, shooting at or from a motor vehicle, child abuse, child abuse resulting in death and tampering with evidence. On Tuesday in a road rage incident, Tony Torrez fired shots at the vehicle driven by Alan Garcia, the father of murdered Lilly Garcia. According to police reports, Garcia and Torrez exchanged words before Torrez pulled out a gun and fired at Garcia’s truck. Who the hell in their right mind does this? He had to have seen that there were children in the car.
Albuquerque police said late Wednesday that a suspect had confessed to a road rage shooting that killed a four-year-old girl on Interstate 40.
Authorities said Tony Torrez, 32, had been charged with murder, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, assault with the intent to commit a violent felony, shooting at or from a motor vehicle, child abuse, child abuse resulting in death and tampering with evidence. He was being held on $650,000 bail.
Police said Torrez had confessed to Tuesday’s shooting, which killed Lilly Garcia as she rode in a vehicle driven by her father Alan, who had just picked Lilly and her brother up from school.
This is the precious child, 4 year old Lilly Garcia who was murdered
Police said Alan Garcia was traveling westbound on Interstate 40 and was attempting to exit the freeway when Torrez’s vehicle cut across traffic and forced Garcia out of his lane. Investigators said Garcia and Torrez exchanged words before Torrez pulled out a gun and fired at Garcia’s truck.
Lilly Garcia was struck at least once in the head. She was rushed to a local hospital, but was later pronounced dead. Her father and brother were unhurt.
UPDATE I: Anonymous Tipster turns Torrez into Police.
Torrez told an acquaintance that “he shot the girl on Interstate 40″ and that Garcia’s “red truck tried to run Tony off the road,” the court documents said. The acquaintance later became an anonymous tipster to police, and his information was used in Torrez’s arrest warrant.
After he was arrested, Torrez “confessed” to the shooting, said police Chief Gorden Eden.
The anonymous tipster told police that Torrez’s address on his driver’s license and registration weren’t correct, and gave two other addresses for Torrez on the same street.
It appears the family did not know the suspect, police told CNN affiliate KOAT.

WE ASK THE QUESTION AGAIN, DO POLICE LIVES MATTER … THE 4TH NYPD OFFICER KILLED IN THE LAST 11 MONTHS.
33 year old NYPD officer Randolph Holder was shot and killed while responding to an incident of a man with a gun in East Harlem, NY. Holder and his partner responded to a report of shots fired at East 102nd Street on the city’s Upper East Side where witnesses told the officers a man had fled on a foot path and where the suspect came across another man and stole his bicycle at gunpoint. Holder and his partner ran toward the danger, not away, but toward the danger. Shots were fired and sadly officer Holder was shot in the head and later died at Harlem Hospital. The suspect was shot in the leg and arrested. Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said during a somber press conference that Holder, who emigrated from Guyana, was a third-generation police officer, following in his father and grandfather’s footsteps in the line of duty.
Rest in Peace Officer Holder
A New York City police officer was shot and killed late Tuesday in the East Harlem section of the city after he responded to a report of shots fired and an armed robbery.
Police Commissioner Bill Bratton identified the murdered officer as Randolph Holder, 33, a five-year veteran of the force. Holder was an officer in the department’s Housing Bureau, which polices the city’s public housing developments.
“Tonight, he did what every other officer in the NYPD does,” Bratton said. “When the call comes, he ran toward danger. It was the last time he will respond to that call.”
Bratton said Holder and his partner responded to a report of shots fired at East 102nd Street on the city’s Upper East Side. Witnesses told the officers a man had fled on a foot path and the officers encountered another man who told them an assailant had stolen his bicycle at gunpoint. Bratton said the officers confronted the suspect and pursued him to the intersection of East 120th Street and the FDR Drive, where gunfire rang out. One witness told Fox 5 that she heard at least five shots.
Holder was shot in the forehead and rushed to Harlem Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 10:22 p.m. Dozens of uniformed and plainclothes officers lined the hospital hallway while other officers held each other as they arrived.
