Gainesville Police Department Officer Responds to Complaint that Kids Are Playing Basketball Too Loud in the Street – VIDEO (Update: Police Return for Rematch with
HEROES OF THE WEEK … OFFICER BOBBY WHITE AND SHAQ!!!
I BET THESE KIDS NEVER EXPECTED THIS WHEN POLICE WERE CALLED REGARDING A NOISE COMPLAINT …
On January 15, 2016 at 5 PM Gainesville Police Department officer Bobby White responds to a call about children playing basketball ‘loudly’. Caught in the officer’s dash cam, Officer Bobby White walked up to the boy and asked him sternly, “Can you believe someone’s calling to complain about kids playing basketball in the street — can you believe that?” Officer White then responded, “Obviously, I ain’t got no problem with it.” GOOD FOR HIM!!! I can guarantee you these kids thought they were going to get hassled as the ‘Black Lives Matters’ would have everyone believe. Officer White’s actions could not have been further from the truth as he began playing basketball with the kids. And shame on the individual who actually called the police for kids playing basketball at 5 PM. What would you rather have them doing?
A police officer responding to a report of kids playing basketball “loudly” in the streets parked his patrol car and spotted a tall boy holding a basketball.
Gainesville Officer Bobby White walked up to the boy and asked him sternly, “Can you believe someone’s calling to complain about kids playing basketball in the street — can you believe that?”
Before the boy could respond, White cracked a smile: “Obviously, I ain’t got no problem with it.”
The young man tossed the officer the ball and he went for two points.
The story gets better, much better. Before leaving Officer White asked the kids if they play ball there everyday. He promised to come back with reinforcements for a rematch. ENTER SHAQ!!! Interestingly enough, even officer White was surprised when Shaquille O’Neal walked through the door.
Check out the kids response below when the police showed up for their rematch and SHAQ gets out of the SUV, its priceless. These kids may never get a better and more lasting lesson in life. Shaq played ball with the kids and the Gainesville Police Department. Shaq even challenges the kids to make a shot and win $100. Little did he realize they could all shoot foul shots better them him, LOL!!! However this VIDEO gets even better at the 3:28 mark. Check out SHAQ’s message to these kids that Shaquille O’Neal provided when he huddled up with the kids. What a message. THANKS SHAQ!!!
The Rematch: GPD “Basketball Cop” returned as promised, and brought SHAQ as his backup!
The 4-time champ made a surprise stop at the Gainesville Police Department on Saturday to praise White and help the officer make good on a promise to “bring backup” for another pickup game with the kids.
Dashcam footage of White responding to the noise complaint went viral after the department posted the video to its Facebook page on Thursday, with the message: “We’re going to let kids be kids. We are going to focus on the ones that commit crimes. #HoopsNotCrime.”
The officer returned to the scene of the non-crime to challenge the kids to a rematch on Saturday.
“Told you I was gonna bring some backup, right? You guys ready?” White asks the kids.
“Look at these big guys I brought. You sure you can take them?” he taunts, pointing to a group of officers.
That’s when O’Neal emerges from an SUV to give the kids a true Shaq attack.
“These kids will never forget the day Shaq rolled up to their house to play ball,” the police department wrote on its Facebook page along with video of the game.
WOW … THIS COULD HAVE ENDED SO MUCH WORSE. THANKS TO THE POLICE, IT DID NOT!!!

Philadelphia Police Officer Jesse Hartnett Ambushed by 30 Year Old Edward Archer … Update: Suspect Confessed He Did it in the Name of Islam
THANK GOD, NOT ALLAH THAT POLICE OFFICER JESSEE HARTNETT IS ALIVE …
In what can only be described as a heinous and vile act of cowardice, Philadelphia police officer Jesse Hartnett is lucky to be alive after he was ambushed at shot numerous times at point-blank range. The suspect, 33 year old Edward Archer, fired 13 bullets at Officer Jesse Hartnett as the cop sat in his patrol car Thursday night. According to reports, the suspect confessed and stated he shot the officer in the name of Islam.
Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross described the attack as an execution attempt.
I just have to tell you, when you look at the video–we have video that captured all of this–it’s one of the scariest things I’ve ever seen. This guy tried to execute the police officer. It’s amazing he’s alive,” Ross said at a press conference Friday morning.
Authorities say a Philadelphia police officer is recovering after he was shot several times during an ambush late Thursday night in West Philadelphia.
Philadelphia police commissioner Richard Ross says the officer, identified as 33-year-old Jesse Hartnett, was sitting in his patrol car around 11:30 p.m. at 60th and Spruce Streets when a gunman fired nearly a dozen shots through the driver’s side of the car.
“Shots fired! I’m shot! I’m bleeding heavily!” Officer Hartnett was heard yelling on police radio.
Police are calling it an “attempted assassination.”
The alleged radical Islamic gunman accused of shooting a Philadelphia cop used a stolen police gun in the attempted “assassination” and pledged allegiance to ISIS as he confessed to the harrowing ambush, officials said.
Suspected shooter Edward Archer fired 13 bullets at Officer Jesse Hartnett as the cop sat in his patrol car Thursday night, police said. The five-year force veteran was hit three times and suffered a broken arm and nerve damage — but was still able to chase after his assailant and fire at the fleeing gunman.
Archer, who was shot three times by the cop he targeted, was taken into custody shortly after the attack and confessed to the ambush, police said at a Friday press conference.
“He stated that he pledges his allegiance to Islamic State. He praises Allah, and that was the reason he was called to do this,” said Philadelphia Police Capt. James Clark.

Indiana Police Officer Provides a Prayer, Not a Ticket, After Pulling Over Speeding Driver Upset Over his Daughter’s Cancer Diagnosis (VIDEO)
AMAZING HOW THE MSM NEVER SEEMS TO MAKE THESE KIND OF POLICE STORIES NATIONAL NEWS …
The power of prayer … Indiana State Police Sgt. Todd Durnil had pulled Rodney Gibson over for speeding when the officer noticed that Gibson appeared to be very upset and angry. However, Gibson was not upset about the traffic stop, but rather about something else going on in his life. Gibson told the police officer that his daughter was recently told the breast cancer she’d been battling for six years metastasized and that she likely wasn’t going to make it. Officer Durnil did not give Gibson a speeding ticket, but instead knelled and prayed with Rodney Gibson that he and his family would have the Lord’s peace during this difficult time. Add this to a long list of random acts of kindness provided by law enforcement that does not fit the agenda of the MSM against law enforcement.
On his way back to his patrol car, Durnil said his first thought was that Gibson really needed prayers and that he would tell his family and church to pray for Gibson.
“I also thought, this man already has enough, I’m not going to write him any paperwork for a ticket or even a warning,” he said. “When I walked back to his truck, I explained everything. He still seemed agitated, but not as bad, and he apologized, saying, ‘I’m sorry, I usually don’t act this way, I’ve just been going through a lot.’”
Durnil then asked Gibson if there was anything else if he could do for him and Gibson told him, “Do you know how to pray?”
“Here I was thinking this man needs prayer, and now he’s asking me for a prayer,” Durnil said. “The good Lord put us together for a purpose.”
It can be stressful enough to see a police car behind you, but imagine getting pulled over after learning your child is dying from cancer.
Rodney Gibson was driving on SR 37 in Monroe County Monday, struggling to accept his daughter’s breast cancer was not going away.
He was so upset, he did not realize he was speeding.
Trooper Durnil decided to not give him a ticket and instead walked over, thinking Rodney needed some prayers.
Durnil then prayed with him.
Gibson was so appreciative, he started crying.
He even called Trooper Durnil’s post in Bloomington to share his appreciation for his kindness.
IMAGINE THAT, THE DEMOCRAT, LIBERAL MEDIA COMPLEX IS LYING TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC …
Check out the story from the NY Post that debunks the media reports that there is currently a police killing epidemic. In the end, the moral of this story is: Don’t point a gun at the cops and don’t run when they tell you stop, and you’re likely to survive.
To hear the media tell it, America is in the grip of an unprecedented crime wave, an orgy of wanton murder in which heavily armed thugs randomly gun down innocent unarmed people, some of them teens, just for sport.
Except that these homicidal goons are wearing the blues and badges of American police departments.
It’s the narrative that’s given rise to the protest movement Black Lives Matter and to a growing public mistrust of the police in general. From Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., to the recent shooting of a middle-aged woman and a teen in Chicago, the body count seemingly keeps rising, exacerbating racial tensions and keeping the nation on edge. And each incident is breathlessly reported by a media determined to show that America remains deeply, irredeemably racist.
Problem is, it’s simply not true.
Last week, The Washington Post published a study of the police shootings that took place in 2015. Likely they intended the story to be shocking — as on Dec. 24, 965 people were killed by police! Instead, the report quells the notion that trigger-happy cops are out hunting for civilian victims, especially African-Americans. Among its key findings:
- White cops shooting unarmed black men accounted for less than 4% of fatal police shootings.
- In three-quarters of the incidents, cops were either under attack themselves or defending civilians. In other words, doing their jobs.
- The majority of those killed were brandishing weapons, suicidal or mentally troubled or bolted when ordered to surrender.
- Nearly a third of police shootings resulted from car chases that began with a minor traffic stop.
Female Driver Hits Pedestrians in ‘Intentional’ Act … One Dead, Many Injured (Update: Driver Arrested)
One is dead and many are injured after a driver “intentionally” ran down many pedestrians on a crowded sidewalk on The Trip in Las Vegas. Many individuals have been treated at the scene in what authorities are calling an intentional act. According to one witness, “Everyone was running … and as I was running, I saw a car up on the sidewalk coming toward us. I saw a lady, she didn’t seem like she wanted to stop the car, she had both hands on her wheel and she was looking straight forward.” The crash happened shortly after 6:30 p.m. between Planet Hollywood and the Paris Hotel. Police closed the Strip is both directions from Flamingo Road to Harmon Avenue.
The female suspect is describes as an African-American woman in her 20′s with a 3 year old child in the back seat. Police have supposedly ruled out terrorism, how about a hate crime?
A driver careened into a crowded sidewalk several times on the Las Vegas Strip, killing one person and injuring more than 30 others, authorities said.
At least one person is dead and seven are in critical condition, fire officials said. Medics tended to 37 people.
Authorities don’t yet know whether the incident was an accident or intentional. The driver was in custody and was undergoing various tests, including one for alcohol, authorities said.
Rows of ambulances and police cars gathered at the scene, their lights flickering. A witness described a chaotic scene as people fled.
“Everyone was running … and as I was running, I saw a car up on the sidewalk coming toward us,” a witness told CNN affiliate KLAS. “I saw a lady, she didn’t seem like she wanted to stop the car, she had both hands on her wheel and she was looking straight forward.”
The woman left the scene, but police later caught up with her outside the Tuscany Suites on East Flamingo. The woman did have a toddler in the car with her. The child was not injured. Police said she had been in Las Vegas for about one week and had Oregon plates on the 1996 Oldsmobile she was driving.
The woman who has not been identified is being held in jail with charges pending. Police are investigating whether she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
FBI and U.S. Marshals Join Search for Missing “Affluenza” Ethan Couch & His Mother … Violated Probation after VIDEO Appears on Twitter
The FBI and US Marshal’s Service have joined the search to locate Ethan Couch and his mother. Does the name sound familiar? Ethan Couch was the 16 year old teen who killed 4 people in a drunk driving incident and was given a slap on the wrist by a juvenile court judge of 10 years probation because of his “affluenza” defense. It turns out after a video appeared on Twitter, Couch may have violated the terms of his probation. Couch and his mother would appear to be hiding from authorities and the mother might once again be trying to prevent her son from facing the consequences of his actions.
Tarrant County Sheriff Dee Anderson said Thursday, “You can run, but you’re always going to be looking over your shoulder. We’re not going to give up. We’re going to come after you. We’re going to find you, wherever you are.”
It is time to jail this punk and put him where he belongs to finally to provide justice the family and loved ones of the four people he killed without a thought or shhred of responsibility in the world. And while you are at it, throe mom in prison too.
The search for Ethan Couch and his mother, Tonya, expanded vastly Thursday as the U.S. Marshal’s Service and FBI joined the effort.
Couch became notorious as a 16-year-old when a juvenile court judge gave him 10 years probation after Couch killed four people in a drunk driving crash. His “affluenza” defense and lack of jail time triggered an emotional reaction across the country.
Ethan and Tonya Couch disappeared sometime in early December, about the time a video hit Twitter appearing to show him laughing at a beer pong party. Terms of his probation forbid use of alcohol.
Let’s see “affluenza” get you out of this one.
Circuit Judge Barry Williams declared a mistrial yesterday in the case of Baltimore Police Officer William G. Porter after jurors failed to reach a unanimous decision on any charges in the death of Freddie Gray. The jury deliberated for 3 days before coming back to the judge and telling him that they hopelessly deadlocked. Officer William G. Porter the first of six police officers to be tried in Gray’s death, remains charged with involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office. However, this is quite a setback to the prosecution and activists. The usual rule of thought when prosecutors are trying multiple individuals, is that the first one out of the box is a slam dunk and your best case. So to set the tone and momentum going into the next trials. Officer Porter is not out of the woods yet, the prosecution will meet to reschedule this trial and will result in the other trials to be pushed back.
Probably one of the best things that was done in this case and may have quelled the violence of a mistrial was the gag order that was put in place and still remains. Thankfully, no one could rush to the media and incite turmoil demagogging the case.
The six Baltimore police officer arrested, Officer William Porter, upper left
A judge declared a mistrial Wednesday in the case of Baltimore Police Officer William G. Porter after jurors said they had failed to reach an agreement on any of the charges against him in the death of Freddie Gray.
The decision, which came a day after jurors told Baltimore Circuit Judge Barry Williams they were deadlocked, frustrated activists who had watched the first trial in Gray’s death closely. Outside the downtown courtroom, city officials and community leaders pleaded for calm, and authorities reported two arrests, but no violence or serious disruptions.
Porter, 26, the first of six police officers to be tried in Gray’s death, remains charged with involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office. Gray, 25, died in April after suffering a severe spinal cord injury in the back of a police van.
Some thoughts from Powerline and I have to agree 100%; however, this just shows how divided individuals have become where even the obvious cannot be agreed upon.
I have a few thoughts about the case. First, it’s a sad commentary that the jury couldn’t find Porter not guilty of the most severe charges against him. Judge Williams instructed the jury that to find Porter guilty of involuntary manslaughter it would have to conclude, beyond a reasonable doubt, that Porter acted in a “grossly negligent manner” and that his conduct was a “gross departure” from what a “reasonable police officer” in a similar situation would do.
I don’t think the evidence remotely sustains a finding of gross departure. The testimony of the former Baltimore police chief and of current officers contradicted it.
To find Porter guilty of of misconduct in office required a finding that Porter “corruptly failed to do an act required by his duties” and that it was “not a mere error in judgment” but involved an “evil motive and bad faith.” This too seems far-fetched based on the evidence as reported by the press.
