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.”
THE REAL QUESTION IS WHEN WILL AL SHARPTON’S LAST SHOW BE, PERIOD!
The Politico is reporting that Al Sharpton and his unwatchable show, ‘PoliticsNation,’ will be moved from its daily spot to Sunday morning. Sharpton stated in an interview, “I never wanted to be a weeknight pundit. I wanted to be a Sunday morning newsmaker. I wanted to be Dr. Martin Luther King, not Larry King.” Note to Reverend Al, you are neither, you are a race baiter and race profiteer.
MSNBC should have admitted their mistake and just dumped Al altogether. Sorry, but is his is not watchable. Now his new show will be shown at Sunday morning at 8, because that is a big time viewership time slot.
Al Sharpton is leaving MSNBC’s weekday dayside lineup, and moving to Sunday mornings.
Sharpton’s last weekday “PoliticsNation” will be Sept. 4. He moves to Sundays a month later on Oct. 4, according to a memo sent to MSNBC staff by the channel’s president Phil Griffin Wednesday evening.
“I want to congratulate Al and his team. For four years they have done a terrific job bringing his voice and a big spotlight to issues of justice, civil rights and equality. And as many of you know, The Rev never missed a show,” Griffin wrote in the email. “I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do with a Sunday morning newsmaker program.”
This means that Sharpton will only air for one hour a week, rather that been seen 5 times a week on a daily basis. I guess for that we should say thank you to BSNBC. This is all a part of the shakeup at MSNBC in an attempt to get ratings that actually can be measured.
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.
Daily Commentary – Wednesday, August 12, 2015 – More Trouble Breaks Out in Ferguson On The Anniversary
- Police Officer is shot at and stores are looted. Ferguson is again in a state of emergency
HOW CLASSY … WAY TO WIN HEARTS AND MINDS …
During a live interview in Ferguson, MO amidst the unrest on the one anniversary of Michael Brown being shot by a police officer after having attacked him, some of the protesters show their true colors and classlessness by chanting “F@ck the police”. Usually paper is considered the gift of choice for a one year anniversary; however, in the case of Ferguson it is bullets and profanity.
I wonder why these brave souls can’t show their faces as they make their vulgar chants?

On One Year Anniversary of Michael Brown’s Death … Tensions Flare in Ferguson, MO as Crowd of 50 People Looted Stores in the St. Louis Suburb
I guess this is how an anniversary is remembered of a movement that was based upon a lie …
Looting and gunfire commemorate the one year anniversary of the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Enough of the talking points of the so-called unarmed teen who was shot by former police officer Darren Wilson. When some one is attacking a police officer and going after their gun, the unarmed adjective used to describe Michael Brown is a misnomer. The subsequent reports to this incident showed that Officer Wilson did nothing wrong and it was Michael Brown that was the aggressor. As Bill Maher stated, he was hardly a gentle giant as the liberal media and race-baiting activists would have us believe. That being said, it is always sad when some one young dies, but one must also act accordingly and mitigate their damages. How sad is it that on the one year anniversary of the shooting death of Michael Brown and the birth of the faux movement, “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot,” that it be remembered with a flurry of gun shots and looting.
Tensions flared in the US city of Ferguson late Sunday as looters targeted at least one store following a day of somber remembrance to mark the anniversary of the police shooting of an unarmed black teen.
A crowd of about 50 people looted a beauty store in the St. Louis suburb and protesters grew confrontational late in the evening. There was no immediate word of any arrests.
Demonstrators had taken to the streets of Ferguson to mark the anniversary of 18-year-old Michael Brown’s death in a fateful encounter on August 9, 2014 with officer Darren Wilson.
The shooting — and a subsequent decision not to indict Wilson — led to violent unrest and set off nationwide protests and intense scrutiny of heavy-handed police tactics in a series of cases that ended in the deaths of unarmed blacks.
Sunday’s day of remembrance had been peaceful until a handful of protesters grew rowdy later in the evening. A crowd of about 300 people had gathered earlier to mark the anniversary, during which they observed four and a half minutes of silence and released two white doves.
On One Year Anniversary of Michael Brown’s Death in Ferguson, MO … Man Shot by Police Officers After He Fired on Them
So we are having a one year anniversary of an individual who attacked a police officer and was killed?
On the one year anniversary of the faux “hands up, don’t shoot” death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, the day was marred with gun fire and bullets shot at police officers. The violence broke out at about 11 pm when shots were fired at the police. The police responded by firing back and shooting the unidentified man who fired on them. St. Louis County Police Department Chief Jon Belmar explained that two groups exchanged gunfire on the west side of W. Florissant near the Sam’s Market in Ferguson, amid a protest marking Brown’s death. The unidentified gunman was shot by the police. As reported at the NY Times, a gun that the police recovered from the shooting victim was a 9-milimeter Sig Sauer that they said was reported stolen last year. Chief Belmar said that the four detectives who had shot the man had between six and 12 years of experience, but he declined to provide information about their race. Imagine that? The gang violence that continues in Ferguson as seen by the actions of this shooter show what the real issue is in Ferguson.
Where was Al Sharpton, what can’t make any race-bating hay off this anymore?
A peaceful day of protest and remembrance dissolved into chaos late Sunday when a man fired multiple shots at four St. Louis County plainclothes detectives in an SUV. The detectives fired back and the shooter was struck, said county Police Chief Jon Belmar. He was in critical condition.
Tyrone Harris identified the victim as his son, Tyrone Harris Jr., 18, of St. Louis. Harris said shortly after 3 a.m. that his son had just gotten out of surgery.
He said his son graduated from Normandy High School and that he and Michael Brown Jr. “were real close.”
“We think there’s a lot more to this than what’s being said,” Harris Sr. said.
In a 2:30 a.m. press conference, Belmar said there is a “small group of people out there that are intent on making sure we don’t have peace that prevails.
“We can’t sustain this as a community,” he said.
A male from one of those groups left, walked across the street, and stopped on the shoulder. Four plainclothes officers in an SUV saw that person, and pulled their vehicle out. The suspect opened fire on the car, hitting the grill and windshield.
The detectives got out of their vehicle when the suspect turned and fired at them, prompting the detectives to shoot back, police said. The detectives chased the suspect on foot. When the suspect reengaged the detectives, they shot the suspect multiple times.
The unidentified suspect has been described as approximately 20 years old and in critical condition. Meanwhile, the officers were placed on administrative leave.
A stolen firearm was recovered from the scene, according to authorities.
So now we make special moments of individuals who attack police officers? Remember folks that Officer Darren Wilson was cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Michael Brown. Even uber-libs like Bill Maher mocked the news reports that this kid was some “Gentle Giant”. The whole Hands Up Dont Shoot was a lie. But that did not stop the liberal media and race-baiters from destroying Officer Wilson’s life. All based on a lie.
Is it really an anniversary if the original event was based upon a lie?
Police Dash-Cam Video in Connecticut Debunks College Professor Minati Roychoudhuri’s Claims of Racial Profiling
OH THOSE PESKY DASH CAMS … LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE.
32 year old Minati Roychoudhuri, a college professor at Capital Community College, in Hartford, CT, accused the Connecticut state police of racial profiling after she was pulled over on May 9, 2015 in Weathersfield. However, her ticket she was given stated her vehicular citation was for failure to drive in the established lane. Of course in the attack police at all chances and call them racist environment, Roychoudhuri sent a letter to the Commissioner of Public Safety claiming that the officer had racially profiled her. As it turns out, the incident was caught on the police dash-cam that proved the 32 year old community college professor was lying through her teeth. Roychoudhuri was subsequently arrested for giving a false statement in the second degree.
Not too smart for a college professor … hopefully the kids she teaches are more honest
A college professor who accused a Connecticut state trooper of racial profiling saw her claims fail when audiotape of the stop proved she was lying, police said.
According to Fox CT, Minati Roychoudhuri, 32, was driving on a highway on May 9 when she was pulled over in the town of Wethersfield. She was cited for failure to drive in the established lane. A month later, Roychoudhuri sent a letter to the Commissioner of Public Safety claiming that the officer had racially profiled her.
“The policeman asked me if I could speak English and if I knew why he had stopped me. I said, “yes” to speaking English and “no” to why he had stopped me,” she wrote in the letter. “The officer did not give me any reason as to why had stopped me. His asking if I could speak English shows that he had racially profiled me and was not able to give me a concrete reason for stopping me.”
When Roychoudhuri, who teaches at Capital Community College, in Hartford, gave an in-person interview in regards to her letter a week later, she repeated her claims of racial profiling and that the officer did not explain why she was stopped. She also signed a statement that it is a crime for her to make any claims that she does not believe to be true in an effort to mislead a public servant.
Read the transcript of the dash cam video HERE.
Officer: Hi ma’am, do you know why I’m stopping you today?
Officer: OK. There’s that big gore area with white lines painted across it and you cut in front of it, in front of me, thinking it’s a lane or something. You have to wait until it’s a dotted white line. License and registration.
Remember when Barack Obama was elected and people said that it would make black/white race relations better … Hows that Hopey/Changey stuff working out for you America?
In 2008 many Americans, including many whites with liberal white guilt, elected Barack Hussein Obama because they thought it would ease race relation in the United States and some how correct the evils of slavery and past racism and discrimination. However, some seven years later and any thought of black/white race relations getting any better are out the window. According to a recent New York Times/CBS News poll, nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad. In fact, nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. During Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign, nearly 60% of blacks said race relations were generally bad, but that number was cut in half shortly after he won. However, it has now soared to 68%. But although blacks think race relations are worse, they could not find it in them-self to say that Obama has done a poor job with race relations. Imagine that. However, under Obama he has brought the racial pressure cooker to the brink and his taking of of one side has been on display for 7 years. It has become evident that with Obama, only black lives do matter, as he can only see himself as Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, rather than his half white side of murdered Kathryn Steinle. Too bad that Obama is supposed to be the leader of all, not just some.
As Instapundit opines, this is Obama’s true legacy.
Seven years ago, in the gauzy afterglow of a stirring election night in Chicago, commentators dared ask whether the United States had finally begun to heal its divisions over race and atone for the original sin of slavery by electing its first black president. It has not. Not even close.
A New York Times/CBS News poll conducted last week reveals that nearly six in 10 Americans, including heavy majorities of both whites and blacks, think race relations are generally bad, and that nearly four in 10 think the situation is getting worse. By comparison, two-thirds of Americans surveyed shortly after President Obama took office said they believed that race relations were generally good.
The swings in attitude have been particularly striking among African-Americans. During Mr. Obama’s 2008 campaign, nearly 60 percent of blacks said race relations were generally bad, but that number was cut in half shortly after he won. It has now soared to 68 percent, the highest level of discontent among blacks during the Obama years and close to the numbers recorded in the aftermath of the riots that followed the 1992 acquittal of Los Angeles police officers charged in the beating of Rodney King.
Wake up America, this is what happens when you elect a community agitator who’s entire presidency has been based on racial divide and class warfare. In many respects, the only reason why Obama was ever voted into office, especially among white voters, was because of the notion that he would some how make race relations better. It certainly was not because he was qualified to be president. However, how many times must you be reminded, its not about the color of one’s skin, it is about the content of their character.
BARACK OBAMA, THE POVERTY PRESIDENT … IMAGINE THAT, MORE CHILDREN IN POVERTY TODAY THAN DURING 2008 RECESSION.
Since Barack Obama has become president, 3 million more children live in poverty, including an amazing number of black children. So much for the first black president changing the conditions for black American children, instead he has made matters worse. This is simply criminal, especially as this president has caused division among the races and promoted class warfare. Yet, Obama has done nothing to help the poor and those in poverty, even with his redistribution of wealth. There is a reason why Obama is known as the food stamp president. This is a kin to child abuse. Imagine what the MSM news headlines would be if a white Republican president had resided under such conditions for black and Hispanic children? Obama is simply an epic failure and will go down as the worst president in history.
But blacks and Hispanics continue to vote For Democrats in droves as their lives are made more miserable by their liberal agenda. If this same data occurred during the presidency of a Republican the media would be asking, why does the GOP hate children.
Ever since President Obama took office, the poverty rate among children has soared to 22 percent, with three million more children living in poor conditions, according to an authoritative new report released Tuesday.
The 2015 “KIDS COUNT” report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation said that the percentage of children living in poverty jumped from 18 percent in 2008, the year Obama was elected, to 22 percent in 2013. It added that the rate dropped from 2012 to 2013, in line with the improving economy.
• The child poverty rate among African Americans (39 percent) was more than double the rate for non-Hispanic whites (14 percent) in 2013.
• In 2013, three in 10 children (22.8 million) lived in families where no parent had full-time, year-round employment. Since 2008, the number of such children climbed by nearly 2.7 million.
• Roughly half of all American Indian children (50 percent) and African-American children (48 percent) had no parent with full-time, year-round employment in 2013, compared with 37 percent of Latino children, 24 percent of non-Hispanic white children and 23 percent of Asian and Pacific Islander children.”
More from USA Today ... So much for the war on poverty.
“The fact that it’s happening is disturbing on lots of levels,” said Laura Speer, the associate director for policy reform and advocacy at the Casey Foundation, a non-profit based in Baltimore. “Those kids often don’t have the access to the things they need to thrive.” The foundation says its mission is to help low-income children in the U.S. by providing grants and advocating for policies that promote economic opportunity.
The report examined data from several federal agencies ranging from 2008 to 2013 to assess state-by-state trends of 16 factors of children’s well-being, including economics, education, health and family and community. It found that one in four children — a total of 18.7 million kids — lived in low-income households in 2013; low-income families were defined as those who use more than 30% of their pre-tax income for housing.
The report also examined racial disparities between children living in low-income households. Black, Hispanic and American Indian children were more than twice as likely to live in poverty than white children, the report said.
