25 Year Old NYPD Officer Brian Moore Died Monday After Being Shot in the Head by Career Criminal Demetrius Blackwell
DO POLICE OFFICER’S LIVES MATTER?
Sadly, 25 year old New York City police officer Moore has died after from his injuries after being shot in the head while on duty Saturday night in Queens, NY. Officer Moore was removed from life support at 11:15 AM on Monday. Brian Moore was shot in the face around 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. Before the officers could react to an individual who had a gun in his waist, he fired upon the officers. Demetrius Blackwell was later arrested in connection with the shooting. According to the New York Post, Blackwell has a record of 10 arrests, including five on charges of robbery, criminal possession of a weapon and grand larceny.
What would the White House and media response have been have the rolls been reversed?
NYPD Officer Brian Moore, RIP
An NYPD officer who was shot in the head while sitting in an unmarked car in Queens Saturday has died from his injuries.
Brian Moore, 25, died Monday, the NYPD confirmed.
“Condolences to the family of PO Brian Moore who lost his life today. RIP to a true hero. We will never forget. #Hero,” the NYPD 104th Precinct tweeted Monday afternoon.
“The shooting of Officer Brian Moore over the weekend was a deplorable act of violence that has robbed New York of one of its finest,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement Monday. “As a member of the NYPD, Officer Moore put the safety of his fellow New Yorkers before his own, and we will remember his service with gratitude and pride. I join with all New Yorkers in mourning his passing and send my deepest condolences to his friends and family.”
Moore underwent surgery for what court papers described as “severe injuries to his skull and brain” and had been in a coma.
Question, do police lives matter? As Barack Obama, black activists, black politicians, liberal politicians and the liberal MSM rail against police attacks and racial bias upon blacks, one has to ask where is the outrage from these folks when police officers are gunned down in the line of duty by dirt-bag thugs? Where are the protests for Brian Moore? Thanks to the racial divide caused by irresponsible leaders and an all too willing lap-dog media to create a narative that does not exists, they have put a target and a bulls-eye on police officers. I hope you are happy. We have lost a good man in Brian Moore at the hand of a career criminal who should have been locked away because he served no functional purpose to society.
I am still waiting for the outrage from Obama, Holder, Sharpton and all the usual suspects.
Shooting at Muhammad Cartoon Contest at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, TX at Pamela Geller Texas Free Speech Event (Update: Two Gunman Dead)
A SHOOTING HAS TAKEN PLACE OUTSIDE THE TEXAS FREE SPEECH EVENT IN GARLAND, TX HELD BY PAMELA GELLER …
According to FOX News, two individuals were shot outside of the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, TX where the Texas Free Speech Event was taking place. The center was put on lock-down following the shooting. The ‘free speech” event (VIDEO) was a ‘Muhammad Art and Cartoon Contest’. This was the same location that hosted a pro-Islam contest last month. Of course there were no gunman trying to kill people at that conference who disagreed with that one.
The First Annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest will be hosted by the Curtis Caldwell Center.
Two individuals were shot dead by police outside of the event as it was reported, “two males drove up to the front of the building in a car,” as the event was coming to an end. “Both males were armed and began shooting at a Garland … security officer. Garland Police officers engaged the gunmen, who were both shot and killed.” It is probably not that much of a stretch that the two gunman that were killed were Islamists looking to quell free speech.

25 Year Old Police Officer Brian Moore Shot in the Face in Queens, NY (Update: Suspect Arrested … ID’d as Demetrius Blackwell, the Cousin of Former Giants CB Kory Blackwell)
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.
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.”

The six Baltimore police officers involved in the arrest of Freddie Gray – who died after being injured in police custody – have been charged criminally, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced Friday.
Mosby’s announcement on the steps of the War Memorial Building was greeted with cheers and applause. Mosby said she told Gray’s family that “no one is above the law and I would pursue justice upon their behalf.”
The city was gearing up for another round of demonstrations after the announcement. Baltimore City and Maryland state offices granted workers in the city liberal leave early Friday afternoon.
After the charges were announced, Desmond Taylor, 29, shouted in jubilee in front of the War Memorial Building.
“I did not expect this, but I prayed for it,” he said. “This day means that your actions bring consequences in Baltimore City.”
New Black Panther Leader Hashim Nzinga Says, Like the Founding Fathers, We Are Willing to Kill for Black Nation
The New Black Panther chairman Hashim Nzinga said this week on “Black Power Radio” that supporters need to be like the Founding Fathers of America and be “willing to die” for the future of black nation. Nzinga said that the New Black Panthers should be looked upon as Founding Fathers who declare war and are “willing to die or kill to save our babies and to save a black nation that is dying before our eyes.” Hmm, is that what the Founding Fathers really meant? Take a good listen to the voice of reason from The New Black Panther Party.
So now they want to be like The Founding Fathers? Aren’t these the same folks who despise The Founding Fathers for being slave owners? Oh and while the New Black Panther Party is on the topic of saving their babies, maybe they might want to look at the Black genocide of abortion.
LISTEN TO THE AUDIO HERE … WARNING: Profanity & Strong Racial Language
This Week on the New Black Panther Party’s “Black Power Radio,” national chairman Hashim Nzinga said since America has “declared war on us,” evidenced by “military police in the black neighborhood” protecting the rich, the New Black Panthers should be looked upon as Founding Fathers who declare war and are “willing to die or kill to save our babies and to save a black nation that is dying before our eyes.”
Nzinga said, “America is about protecting the rich and the powerful.”
He added, “We pay taxes. They have declared war on us and it’s nothing but state racism.”
“So if we say we are at war, we should be applauded like George Washington,” Nzinga continued. “We should be applauded like Thomas Jefferson. We should be applauded like the Founding Fathers of the country.”
Prisoner in Van Says Freddie Gray “Was Intentionally Tried to Injure Himself” and “Banging Against the Walls” of the Vehicle
EVEN IF TRUE, THERE IS NO WAY THE MOB IS GOING TO BELIEVE THAT FREDDIE GRAY INJURED HIMSELF, NOT A CHANCE …
The Washington Post is reporting that a prisoner who was being transported in the same van as Freddie Gray said, he could hear Gray banging against the walls of the police vehicle and the individual believed that he (Freddie Gray) “was intentionally trying to injure himself.” The 25 year old Freddie Gray was found unconscious in the police van when it arrived at a police station on April 12, having suffered a spinal injury and died a week later. Gray’s death touched off protests in Baltimore, Maryland and was used as the justification for violence, looting and rioting following his funeral. We are also learning this morning that there will be no complete, official police report forthcoming in Baltimore on Friday regarding the death of Freddie Gray.
The truth of the matter is that many things could have happened. Its hard to know how one would know someone was intentionally trying to hurt oneself like this when you could only hear and not see. Could some one sever ones spine by knocking their head against the way of a van? Seems hard to believe. Could one who was in restraints sever their spine if they had a seizure?
VIDEO: Megyn Kelley, The Kelley File – Did Freddie Gray Tried to Injure Himself in Police Custody
A prisoner sharing a police transport van with Freddie Gray told investigators that he could hear Gray “banging against the walls” of the vehicle and believed that he “was intentionally trying to injure himself,” according to a police document obtained by The Washington Post.
The prisoner, who is currently in jail, was separated from Gray by a metal partition and could not see him. His statement is contained in an application for a search warrant, which is sealed by the court. The Post was given the document under the condition that the prisoner not be named because the person who provided it feared for the inmate’s safety.
The document, written by a Baltimore police investigator, offers the first glimpse of what might have happened inside the van. It is not clear whether any additional evidence backs up the prisoner’s version, which is just one piece of a much larger probe.
Gray was found unconscious in the wagon when it arrived at a police station on April 12. The 25-year-old had suffered a spinal injury and died a week later, touching off waves of protests across Baltimore, capped by a riot Monday in which hundreds of angry residents torched buildings, looted stores and pelted police officers with rocks.
For a fantastic account and summary of the death of Freddie Gray, read the post at Legal Insurrection.
This new narrative questions the claims of police brutality that the protesters of Baltimore have jumped on as well as the MSM, Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama. Is this scenario plausible? One thing is for certain, there is no way that the protesters in Baltimore or around the country who already believe this is a case of police brutality will care.
In it, a prisoner who was in the same police van as Gray said he could hear Gray “banging against the walls” of the van and thought Gray “was intentionally trying to injure himself.”
The prisoner was separated from Gray by a metal barrier and could not see him, police have said.
The account is similar to what Batts told CNN affiliate WJZ last week, when the police commissioner said another suspect in the van heard Gray “thrashing about.”
But Gray family attorney Jason Downs disputes the notion that Gray caused his own fatal injury.
“We disagree with any implication that Freddie Gray severed his own spinal cord,” Downs told the Post. “We question the accuracy of the police reports we’ve seen thus far, including the police report that says Mr. Gray was arrested without force or incident.”
An attorney for the local police union has said those moments in the van are critical to understanding the case.
“Our position is something happened in that van,” police union attorney Michael Davey said. “We just don’t know what.”
THERE WAS A TIME WHEN THIS WAS THE RULE, NOT THE EXCEPTION AND THE GRANDMA’S WOULD HAVE KNOCKED HIM OUT COLD …
God bless this Baltimore mom for doing the right thing and teaching her son a lesson he will never forget. The VIDEO has gone viral as one parent in a sea of insanity and lawlessness did the right thing for her child and made sure he was not a part of the violence and thuggery. My candidate for mother of the year, Toya Graham said today that she did it because she “didn’t want her son to become another Freddie Gray”. Amazingly enough, the idiots at CNN was condemning the mom because she hit her son and was providing him with a life’s lesson by using violence. But this is the illness that is liberalism. This mom should be applauded and commended for caring and being concerned enough for looking out for her 16 year old son’s best interest and safety because frankly, with the crap that the cops had to put up with last night in Baltimore, they would have been justified if they opened fire.
“At that point, I just lost it,” said Graham. “I was shocked, I was angry, because you never want to see your child out there doing that.”
Graham, a single mom with six children, denounced the vandalism and violence against police officers. She said rioting in Baltimore is no way to go about getting justice for Freddie Gray and that she doesn’t want that life for her son.
Honestly, the first thing I thought of when Toya Graham slapped her son upside his head and ripped him a new one was … where was Adrian Peterson and his switch when you need him?
But seriously, there was a time in this country when what Toya Graham did was the norm. It would not have been considered to be a viral video because it would have been an everyday occurrence. Sadly that is not the case anymore where there seems to be a real issue in the black communities with authority. That authority being either the police educators or even parents. However, back in the day, black grandmothers were even more feared and respected as they ruled the day and be the iron fist of many families. I can remember so many years back in Connecticut and our close family friend, Gurt. God Bless her soul and I am sure he has many, many times. She was the glue, the motivation and the driving force of obeying the rules. Gurt was a 62 year old grandmother of 10, mother of 4 and one of the finest individuals I have ever met.
WMAR captured video of the woman repeatedly slapping her son and yelling at him after she saw him throw rocks at police officers.
She recognized her son even though he was wearing a mask.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts praised the mother’s actions.
“If you saw on one scene, you had one mother who grabbed her child who had a hood on his head and she started smacking him on the head because she was so embarrassed,” Batts said. “I wish I had more parents that took charge of their kids out there tonight.”
Riots, Looting and Lawlessness Hit Baltimore following Funeral of Freddie Gray (VIDEO) (Update: Police Injured, Senior Center Burned to the Ground)
RIOTS AND LOOTING ROCK BALTIMORE …
Following the events in Baltimore, MD over the weekend, it was not hard to predict what would happen on Monday following the funeral of Freddie Gray, unless you were the Mayor of Baltimore. Just hours after the funeral of 25 year old Freddie Gray, who died in police custody after suffering a spinal cord injury, all hell broke loose in Baltimore. The so-called peaceful protests turned into lawlessness, rioting, looting and violence Monday afternoon and into the night as stores were burned and looted, bottles, bricks and stones were thrown at the police, injuring at least 15 police officers.
The VIDEO below shows the looting and eventual burning of the CVS store in West Baltimore. So this was justified by the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody that is being investigated. Hardly, some thugs just needed the excuse. Tell me, why would CVS ever want to rebuild this store? How about the mom and pop stores that were trashed and burned, who probably lost their livelihoods.
CVS Pharmacy Looted
Violence swept through pockets of a low-income section of West Baltimore on Monday afternoon as scores of rioters heaved bottles and rocks at riot-gear-clad police, set police cars on fire, and looted a pharmacy, a mall and other businesses. At least 15 officers were injured.
Images of the violence were broadcast nationwide just hours after Freddie Gray was eulogized at his funeral, and Gray’s family and clergy members called for calm. Gray died of an injury he suffered while in police custody.
The rioting did not appear to stem from any organized protests over Gray’s death.
Police from surrounding communities were called in to help. Gov. Larry Hogan (R) declared a state of emergency in the city and activated the National Guard. The troops were in Baltimore before midnight.
The officers were injured — some with broken bones and at least one rendered unconscious — shortly after the violence began about 3 p.m. Two officers remained hospitalized late Monday; they had been hit with items thrown mostly by school-age youths, police said. Officers in full riot gear were pelted with rocks and bottles as they moved in to arrest some of the dozens of young people who had assaulted them.
Mobs destroyed police cars, started several small fires, and invaded a check-cashing agency and sought to break into its ATM. Looters carried off armloads of merchandise from liquor stores and a CVS pharmacy at Pennsylvania and North avenues that also was set ablaze. By nightfall, 27 people had been arrested.
Take a good look at what happens when you have a complete and lack of leadership
(Warning – adult language)
UPDATE I: Riots erupt across West Baltimore, downtown.
Violence and looting overtook much of West Baltimore on Monday, injuring more than a dozen police officers and leaving buildings and vehicles in flames.
As night fell, looters took to Mondawmin Mall and a Save-A-Lot and Rite Aid in Bolton Hill, loading up cars with stolen goods. About 10 fire crews battled a three-alarm fire at a large senior center under construction at Chester and Gay streets, as police officers stood guard with long guns.
About 10 p.m., police confirmed shots were fired at an officer in the area of Virginia Avenue and Reisterstown Road in Northwest Baltimore. The officer was not hit and the suspect fled.
Fifteen police officers were injured in a clash with school-age children that began around 3 p.m., and two remain hospitalized, police Col. Darryl DeSousa said in a press conference Monday night. Earlier, police spokesman Capt. Eric Kowalczyk said one officer was unresponsive and others suffered broken bones.
Police arrested 27 people, DeSousa said.
UPDATE II: Senior Center Built by Baptist Church Up in Flames in Baltimore Riots.
