47 Year Old Deputy Darren H. Goforth Shot & Killed “Execution Style” in Houston, Texas Area (Update: Suspect Arrested and in Custody)
POLICE OFFICERS LIVES MATTER!!!
47 year old Harris County Sheriff Deputy Darren H. Goforth was shot and killed “execution-style” as he fueled his patrol car in the Houston area of Texas. What the hell is going on in this country? Thanks to the racial division and poison spread from the Obama White House and the DOJ, and the so-called Black Lives Matter crowd, we know have the beginnings of a race war. As Deputy Goforth was pumping gas a man walked up behind him and shot him, killing him instantly. The POS scumbag thug then stood over him and shot Gosforth some more, even after the officer was dead. Goforth is survived by his wife, who works as a school teacher, and two children, ages 12 and 5.
Rest in Peace
You cannot even imagine the anger and rage that I have towards these lawless thugs that would do such a heinous act. Hopefully this POS will be captured soon and seeing that it is Texas will be put to death like he rightfully should. HOW IS THIS NOT A HATE CRIME? This is the definition of a hate crime. This thug needs to be put down like a rabid animal. Folks, it does not get any more heinous than this. It also does not get any more cowardice. This thug shot a police officer when his back was turned, really? What a brave soul you are. Hopefully you will get coming to you all that you rightfully deserve.
Emotional Press Conference regarding Deputy Gogorth’s death … “the suspect will be caught and will be brought to justice”
A man shot a uniformed sheriff’s deputy “execution-style” while he fueled his patrol car in the Houston area, killing him instantly, authorities said.
Deputy Darren H. Goforth, 47, was returning to his car after pumping gas Friday night.
The gunman walked up from behind him and opened fire for no apparent reason, Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman said.
When Goforth fell to the ground, the gunman stood over him and shot him some more, authorities said. He died at the scene.
“He was literally gunned down in what appears to be an unprovoked, execution-style killing,” Hickman said. “I have been in law enforcement for 45 years, I have never seen anything this cold-blooded.”
‘He did not say anything’
The gunman gave no indication of his motive. He drove away after the shooting in a red Ford Ranger, authorities said. A manhunt is underway to find him.
According to reports, the suspects mother called the Harris County Sheriff’s office after learning her son may have been involved in the shooting. The suspect was arrested at his mother’s home.
A man “believed to be the alleged gunman” in the killing of a uniformed Houston-area sheriff’s deputy was in custody and being questioned Saturday morning, Sgt. William Kennard of the Texas Department of Public Safety told CNN.
No charges have been filed against the man, Kennard said. The man’s name wasn’t given.
It was the man’s mother who called the Harris County Sheriff’s Department about her son, Kennard said. “All the information she had heard led to him.”
For deputy Darren Goforth, who was shot and killed at a Texas gas station Friday, law enforcement was “his calling,” his brother-in-law told ABC News.
Goforth, a Harris County Sheriff’s deputy, was filling up his patrol car at a gas station near Houston when a man approached him from behind and shot him several times, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
“He wanted to spend his whole life in it once he got in it,” Allison, 46, said. “He really felt the brotherhood in the community … that’s what he loved to do.
“He was kind of born for it,” Allison said.
Goforth is survived by his wife, who works as a school teacher, and two children, ages 12 and 5, Allison said.
“He was the rock in that family,” Allison said through tears. “The kids loved him.
“I didn’t have a brother… when they got together he was like the only other brother in my family,” Allison said.
Goforth “never got mad at anybody,” Allison said. “He was just a giving individual.”

Crazed Gunman Fatally Shoots WBDJ7 Reporter & Camara Man in Middle of Live TV Interview – VIDEO (Update: Victims Allison Parker & Adam Ward)(Update: Shooter ID’s as Vester Flanagan, Also used the name Bryce Williams)
HORRIFIC MURDER OF REPORTER AND CAMERAMAN AS THEY DID A LIVE O AIR INTERVIEW …
It is something that one would never think they would see. In the middle of a live TV interview, a WDBJ reporter and her cameraman were shot dead. This did not take place in Iraq or Afghanistan, the double live on air murder took place in Virginia. The shooting happened around 6:45 a.m. at Bridgewater Plaza in Franklin County, as Parker interviewed Gardner about the upcoming 50th anniversary festivities for Smith Mountain Lake, a local tourism destination. The murder victims were reporter Victims Allison Parker and her camera man Adam Ward. The individual who was being interviewed, Vicki Gardner, executive director of the Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce, was shot in the back, and transported to the hospital.
The live spot by reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward was nothing out of the ordinary: They were interviewing a local official at an outdoor shopping mall for a tourism story. Then, at about 6:45 a.m., morning show viewers saw her suddenly scream and run, crying “Oh my God,” as she fell. Ward fell, too, and the camera he had been holding on his shoulder captured a fleeting image of the suspect holding a handgun.
WDBJ quickly switched back to the anchor at the station, her eyes large and jaw dropping as she said, “OK, not sure what happened there.” The station later went live again, reporting on their own staff as the story developed.
WARNING – This is the live video when the shooting took place
On the air, several shocked WDBJ-TV anchors reacted to the tragedy and remembered the victims:
“We realize, we cover stories of people being shot all the time, and so now we realize firsthand what so many of you have sadly gone through,” one of the anchors said as she fought back tears. “That when it’s someone you know; and someone you love and care about; and someone you work with day in and day out; and someone so young, it makes it so tough.”
UPDATE II: Parker and Ward died at the scene. Their interview subject, Vicki Gardner, was in stable condition later Wednesday after surgery for her wounds.
On Wednesday, after Parker and Ward’s deaths, Twitter and Facebook accounts under the name Bryce Williams shared graphic video of the shooting filmed from the perspective of the gunman. However, after sharing the videos, his Facebook and Twitter accounts were later suspended.
Vester Flanagan, who also used the name Bryce Williams, was a former TV reporter for WDBJ. He uploaded videos online showing himself fatally shooting WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward on Wednesday.
The man who authorities said fatally shot Virginia reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward during a live broadcast Wednesday before killing himself is a former television reporter for the same station.
Vester Lee Flanagan II, 41, who also used the name Bryce Williams, was employed at WDBJ-TV between 2012 and 2013 as a multimedia journalist, the station’s general manager, Jeff Marks, said.
Speaking Wednesday on air, his former WDBJ colleagues said that Bryce Williams was the name he used on television.
“Vester was an unhappy man. We employed him as a reporter and he had some talent in that respect and some experience,” Marks said. “He quickly gathered a reputation of someone who was difficult to work with. He was sort of looking out to people to say things he could take offense to. Eventually, after many incidents of his anger, we dismissed him. He did not take that well. We had to call police to escort him from the building.”
Vester Flanagan, Also used the name Bryce Williams
The chamber of commerce executive shot during a live news broadcast in Virginia was in stable condition Wednesday after undergoing emergency surgery, officials said.
Vicki Gardner, executive director of the Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce, was shot in the back, said Barb Nocera, the chamber’s special projects manager.
Gardner was recovering at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital in Roanoke, hospital president Steve Arner said. Gardner is also a member of the hospital’s board of directors and is “a close friend” of the institution, he said in a statement.
Ferguson, MO: 9 Year Old Jamyla Bolden Shot Dead as She Was doing Homework on Her Mother’s Bed … Do Black Lives Matter?
DO BLACK LIVES REALLY MATTER IN FERGUSON, OR IS IT JUST WHEN THEY ARE KILLED BY THE POLICE?
9 year old Jamyla Bolden was shot dead as she was doing homework in her home as she laid on her mother’s bed. Jamyla was a fourth grader at Koch Elementary School. The incident took place at about 9:30 Thursday night in the 9200 block of Ellison in Ferguson, Missouri. The shooting happened a couple of blocks from the site where 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot by a police officer on Aug. 9, 2014. What a tragic and sad story about the death of a child who was simply just doing home work. Her mother also suffered a gunshot wound to the leg.
For the Black Lives Matter crowd, this is what you should be concerning yourself with. But alas, there are no cops, and white ones at that, to blame. Only most like gang members. You would protect when a thugs who attempt to attack a police officer or stupidly points a gun at police and wind up dead, imagine that? But for an innocent young girl you are silent. What’s the matter Rev’s Al and Jessee, not enough race-baiting in this tragic situation?
Ferguson police are searching for clues about the killing of a 9-year-old girl who was shot when someone fired into a home where she was doing homework on her mother’s bed.
No arrests have been made in Tuesday night’s fatal shooting of Jamyla Bolden and police don’t yet know if the home was targeted or the shots were random, Ferguson Sgt. Dominica Fuller said Thursday.
Jamyla’s mother, 34, was struck in the leg and treated at a hospital.
“You have a 9-year-old child on her mother’s bed doing homework and a bullet strikes her,” Fuller said. “Our concern is to get this person off the street.”
The shooting happened a couple of blocks from the site where 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot by a police officer on Aug. 9, 2014, sparking sometimes violent protests.
Fuller, herself the mother of a 9-year-old, was among the first officers at the home after the shooting, which was reported just after 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. She said police did all they could to help the child, to no avail.
BIZARRE MURDER IN NYC …
The grand daughter of Oscar award winning actor Morgan Freeman was murdered in New York City early Sunday morning. 33 year old E’Dena Hines was stabbed to death on the Manhattan sidewalks by her ranting and crazed boyfriend. Reports state Hines was stabbed 16 times.According to accounts, Hines’ 30 year old live-in boyfriend, Lamar Davenport, was in a drug-induced psychosis when he continuously stabbed her ranting, “Get out, devils! I cast you out, devils! In the name of Jesus Christ, I cast you out!” She was transported to Harlem Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
The granddaughter of acclaimed actor Morgan Freeman was stabbed to death on a Manhattan sidewalk early Sunday during what law-enforcement sources and witnesses described as an “exorcism” at the hands of her ranting boyfriend.
“Get out, devils! I cast you out, devils! In the name of Jesus Christ, I cast you out!” the killer yelled as he plunged a hunting knife into 33-year-old E’Dena Hines’ chest, according to George Hudacko, who witnessed the 3 a.m. attack from his apartment window in Washington Heights.
Hines, an actress who had appeared on Broadway and on red carpets at Freeman’s side, was stabbed 16 times, officials said.
“The girl was making a lot of noise, screaming,” Hudacko said, adding. “I called 911 — I was begging them to come.”
Davenport — an actor and rapper wannabe whose nickname is “Lyric” — abuses cocaine, pot and booze, and has two young children, according to law-enforcement sources. Hines was not their mother
He has six prior arrests, including for marijuana and petty larceny, the sources added.
“The world will never know her artistry, and how much she had to offer”.
“Her friends and family were fortunate enough to have known what she meant as a person,” he said. “Her star will continue to shine bright in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. May she rest in peace.”
Where are all the race hustlers … Black lives matter, right?
Connecticut Supreme Court Declared Death Penalty Unconstitutional … Allows 11 on Death Row to Live Including heinous Rapist & Murders Joshua Komisarjevsky and Steven Hayes
Shame on the Connecticut Supreme Court … Allows rapist and murders live without parole.
The Connecticut Supreme Court has declared the death penalty unconstitutional on the grounds that it is cruel and unusual punishment. REALLY? You know what I deem cruel and unusual punishment, the torturing, molesting, raping and murdering of 48 year old Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her two daughters, Michaela and Hayley. How could anything else but the death penalty be the punishment for two individuals who would commit such heinous and vile acts? It is times like this that pubic stonings should be allowed.
But instead a bunch of bleeding heart liberals would rather spare the lives of rapists and murders. I wonder if the justices and the libs would feel the same if it happened to members of their families or their friends?
The Petit family home-invasion murders drew international attention: Two men raped and strangled a mother and molested one of her daughters in Connecticut. Then they set fire to the home, killing the woman and her 11- and 17-year-old daughters.
On Thursday, the Connecticut Supreme Court declared the death penalty unconstitutional, sparing the lives of the two killers and nine other convicts who were on death row when the state abolished capital punishment in 2012.
Joshua Komisarjevsky and Steven Hayes were sentenced to death for the slayings of Jennifer Hawke-Petit, 48, and her daughters, Michaela and Hayley.
“I’m not surprised at this decision,” said Michael Dearington, who prosecuted Komisarjevsky and Hayes, declining to elaborate.
In 2012, Gov. Dannel Malloy signed a bill into law that abolished the death penalty, making the state the 17th in the nation to abandon capital punishment and the fifth in five years to usher in a repeal. But inmates already on death row when the law passed were considered exempt from the law and could be executed.
The Supreme Court decision stems from the appeal of a defendant whose lawyers argued that executions carried out after the state abolished the death penalty would represent cruel and unusual punishment. That inmate, Eduardo Santiago, faced the death penalty after being convicted of a murder in West Hartford in 2000 in exchange for a snowmobile.

Donald Trump Instagram VIDEO Rips Barack Obama & Hillary Clinton … “Politicians are Having Fun on Your Dime While the World is Buring”
LOVE HIM OR HATE HIM … DONALD TRUMP IS SAYING WHAT MOST AMERICANS ARE THINKING AND ITS RESONATING …
Yesterday Donald Trump released a 15 second Instagram video that was both hard hitting and remarkable in many ways. First, in the age of new social media, this video that cost literally nothing to make and produce and reached many views as other campaigns spend thousands on highly produced TV ads. Second, Trump blistered both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton as having fun and a grand old time juxtaposed to images of ISIS’s Jihadi John cutting innocent individuals heads off and the Consulate burning in Benghazi where four Americans were killed, including Ambassador Stevens.
The message, “politicians are having fun on your dime as the world burns”. This is so powerful and effective because that is exactly what many Americans believe, but have no platform to say it. Enter Donald Trump and his brash, over the top, take no prisons style. But the GOP establishment is worried about his tone. Most Americans say, screw the tone, we want results and we want politicians working for We the People, not taking advantage of the perks of their political office. Why does it seem that Barack Obama has played more golf since he has been president than Tiger Woods, Babba Watson and Jordan Spieth? Believe it or not it has been 219 times after he has continuously claimed he will not rest until every willing and and able American can find a job, not one single veteran falls into homelessness and until we build an economy that is ready for America’s future. How’s that working out for America? And of course with Hillary Clinton, what difference does anything make.
49 Year Old David Conley Charged with Capital Murder after 8 People Found Dead in a Northwest Harris County, TX Home
So where is the “Black Lives Matter” crowd with this callous and heinous loss of life?
49 year old David Conley has been arrested and charged with capital murder after 8 people were found dead in a northwest Harris County, Texas home. The murder victims found Saturday night in the Houston area home were five children and three adults. Conley was taken into custody after surrendering to authorities after a stand off with police following their call to the residence for a welfare check. According to Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Thomas Gilliland, it was not yet known whether Conley is related to the victims, or how they died. As reported at NBC News, previous records show Conley has faced various misdemeanor and felony records dating back to 1999.
Press conference from Harris County Sheriff’s office
David Conley has been charged with capital murder after eight people were found dead in a northwest Harris County home.
Conley was arrested Saturday evening after a standoff with police in the 2200 block of Falling Oaks, not far from Veterans Memorial and Fallbrook Drive, after Harris County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the home for a welfare check.
After the standoff, deputies found five children and three adults dead inside the home.
The sheriff’s office will be holding a 3 p.m. press conference to provide more information.
Gilliland said while waiting for a High Risk Operations Unit to arrive at the scene, deputies spotted the body of a juvenile through a window. Four deputies then forced their way into the home, prompting the 49-year-old male suspect inside to begin shooting. Deputies pulled back and waited for the operations unit to arrive.
Deputies pulled back, and the man surrendered about an hour later.
“At this time we have what appears to be five children and three adults,” Gilliland said. “Ages and genders we do not have, and cause of death we do not have. The medical examiner will have to determine a cause of death.”
The relationship between the suspect and unidentified victims wasn’t immediately known. No further details were released.
Manhunt Underway for Suspect who Shot & Killed Police Officer in Shreveport, Louisiana (Update: Police Arrest Grover D. Cannon Suspected of Shooting Officer Thomas LaValley)
POLICE LIVES MATTER!!!
The Shrevesport Times is reporting that a police officer was shot and killed in the line of duty Wednesday night. According to Shreveport Police Department spokesman Cpl. Marcus Hines, the department received a call at 9:14 p.m. about a suspicious person at the 3500 block of Del Rio Street. Hines said a man inside a home on the block was armed and making threats toward a family member. The officer was hit several times and was taken to University Health but died. The officers name has yet to be named. A manhunt is currently underway for the killer. Shreveport police spokesman Bill Goodin stated that investigators believe they know who the suspect is and are obtaining a warrant for his arrest.
A manhunt was underway early Thursday after a police officer was gunned down in Shreveport, Louisiana.
The officer was shot multiple times while responding to a report of a suspicious person armed with a gun inside a home at around 9 p.m. local time (10 p.m. ET) on Wednesday, authorities said.
“We’ll continue searching until suspect is caught and brought to justice,” Shreveport Police spokesman Cpl. Marcus Hines told NBC News.
He said dozens of officers were involved in search, adding: “We’re not going to stop looking. He will be found. It’s not a question of if it’s when.”
The officer’s identity was not immediately released. “Our request is that everyone pray for the family of the officer involved,” Hines added.
27 year old Grover D. Cannon (Photo: Shreveport, LA Police Department)
In Jackson, Miss., officers had searched at least two Greyhound buses that arrived from Louisiana in a manhunt for Grover D. Cannon, 27, accused of shooting a Shreveport police officer multiple times. Police were monitoring other buses; Greyhound has five buses daily from Shreveport to Jackson, some with intermediate stops.
But based on several tips, Shreveport officers found Cannon less than a mile from where Officer Thomas LaValley, 29, was shot around 9:15 p.m. CT Wednesday as the officer responded to a call of an armed man making threats toward a family member.
Cannon is being charged with first-degree murder in the death of LaValley, who joined the department in 2011. Cannon also was wanted for attempted second-degree murder for the July 15 shooting of Darren Williams, 45, Shreveport police Chief Willie Shaw said.
“Thomas LaValley was a best friend in every sense. Just a true genuine person from south Louisiana. You couldn’t ask for anyone better to be in your corner,” said friend Casey Habich. “He was one of the good guys. He was a caretaker and went above and beyond to make sure his family and friends were always well looked after.”
Memphis Police Officer Shooting Suspect Tremaine Wilbourn Says, “I’m not a cold-blooded killer and two, I am not a coward.”
WRONG ON BOTH ACCOUNTS LOSER … DUDE, THAT IS ALL YOU ARE BUT A COWARD!!!
A note to Tremaine Wilbourn, not only are you a cold blooded killer and a coward, you are also a felon, loser, and a pathetic POS who does not deserve to be allowed to breath the same air as the rest of the other law abiding citizens. This scumbag had already spent time in prison on bank robbery charges and was headed back there due to violating his parole. But he is not a coward for shooting an unsuspecting police officer. The coward surrendered to police because he knew if he kept running from the law after killing a police officer, he would have been shot dead in a fair gun fight.
“He wanted to make it a point, to say that ‘I want you to know one thing.’” Toney Armstrong told reporters Monday night. “I asked ‘What was that?’ He said ‘I want you to know that one, I’m not a cold-blooded killer and two, I am not a coward.’”
Sorry if the truth hurts COWARD.
