Colorado Police Officers Save 3-Year-Old After She Gets Stuck in Bars

Kids and young animals both have a double dose of curiosity that often gets them into trouble. As they learn the ropes, they can get themselves into all sorts of situations that require help to get them out of.

For one little 3-year-old girl in Boulder, Colorado, that took the form of getting stuck in the railing along the second floor of an apartment complex.

It’s fairly common for kids to get stuck in these sorts of things (stair railings and chair rungs are common targets, too), and no doubt you or someone you know tried some similar stunt at an early age.

There are all sorts of suggested remedies: using butter or some other oily substance so the child can slip back through or — with help — lifting the child through whatever he or she is trapped in, since usually the rest of the body can fit if the head did.

But the metal railing proved to have bested the adults in the girl’s life, and its location on the second floor made accessing the girl from the other side rather difficult.

After trying and failing to free her, they called the Boulder police, who were amused enough over the situation that they shared it on social media.

“As kids, we’ve all done things that seem like a good idea at the time, but that we sometimes come to regret,” the department’s Facebook post from Sept. 21 reads. “That was the situation here where this adorable toddler was recently enjoying the day and her view, but accidentally got her head stuck in the railing.

“Thankfully Sergeant Marquez and Officer Kyle were quick to respond and came up with a clever and speedy way to safely free her. Shared with the mother’s permission.”

Police used a battering ram to carefully wedge the bars apart enough that the girl could pop her head back out. She immediately ran to her mother and sobbed into her shoulder.

In between heaving sobs, the little girl promised to never do that again. One officer knelt down, chatted with her a bit and offered her a police badge sticker.

As the officers left, the little girl called after them to say thank you, and her little voice has warmed many hearts.

“I was crying and whining,” the girl told KDVR-TV. “The police come and got my head out with a big heavy tool. … Well right now it feels oh so nice!”

The girl’s mother said that she’d started to panic by the time police arrived but that they did a wonderful job calming both her and her daughter.

“I was quite scared, my stomach was in my throat, but I knew I had to be calm and let her know there was nothing to be scared of,” she said. “It would be taken care of. The officers were amazing actually. They gave her stickers and a badge to make her feel special. I’m just really glad that they were actually able to put us at so much ease, and my daughter especially. I mean, they were great with her.”

While many have commented that the situation could have been handled without calling the police, the police involved seemed rather grateful for the call.

Sgt. Michael Marquez said it was a heartwarming experience for the officers who responded.

“It just melted my heart,” he said, getting a little choked up. “It, it was a great day. It felt good to help her, help her family, people around her were having a tough time, we were making it better for them.

Officer Jordan Kyle, also on the scene, agreed.

“It just reminds you what you’re doing is the right thing, it reminds you why you got in the job,” he said. “And with all the negativity and whatnot, just little calls like that kind of give that refresher, and it makes you happy for what you do. Helping out folks, getting the bad guy, helping out 2- to 3-year-olds with head stuck in fences. Every day is different. That’s the nice thing about this job. You might put on the same uniform and get in the same car, but calls are going to be different, experiences are going to be different. It’s the best job I ever had.

“Don’t be afraid to call the police. If you’re thinking, ‘Maybe I should call the police,’ call the police. We’re happy to come on out and help you in any way we can.”

Police Officers Make Heroic Rescue of Suicidal Man on Bridge

September is National Suicide Prevention Month, and few people honored that fact as effectively as two officers with the Metra Police Department in Blue Island, Illinois.

Sergeant Will Wright and Officer Andrea Clunie were directly responsible for saving a man who attempted to throw himself off a bridge on Sept. 15.

It started around 5:30 p.m. as construction near the 127th Street bridge over the Metra rail yard was coming to a halt for the day. It was providential that there were still workers on site, as they were able to spot and report a man engaging in concerning activity.

A white Honda Accord drove up to the construction area and passed two “Road Closed” signs along 127th Street, according to Metra.

Workers waved at him and tried to get him to stop, but he persisted.

When the car got stuck and couldn’t go any further, a man got out and walked toward the bridge.

Sgt. Wright and Officer Clunie arrived just in time. Bodycam footage shows them approaching the man and asking him to turn around, so they could handcuff him.

Unfortunately, turning around meant facing the railing of the bridge, and the man began to jump over the side.

He was able to get half his body over the railing before the officers grabbed him and hauled him back to safety.

“No, no, don’t do this,” Clunie can be heard saying in the video.

“I’m just tired,” the man said as the officers pinned him to the ground and put him in handcuffs. “I’m just so tired.”

“And we’re gonna help you out,” Clunie reassured him. “Nothing is worth you taking your life, okay?”

According to the NWI Times, the man was arrested and taken for an evaluation at Ingalls Hospital.

The CEO and executive director of Metra, Jim Derwinski, thanked the officers for their humanity and successful intervention.

“I am immensely proud of the job these two officers did in this incident, not only by their quick reactions to pull this individual to safety but also by their positive words to him as they did so,” Derwinski said. “They are outstanding representatives of Metra and the Metra Police Department and they truly embody the spirit of My Metra.”

Metra Police Department’s Captain Michael O’Neill also commended the two officers.

“An officer gave a good description. The officers located him on the bridge,” O’Neill said, according to WFLD.

“He was obviously having mental and emotional issues. They tried to get him away, when he tried to go over, they grabbed him, pulled him back.

“We got him transported. He is still currently hospitalized, but that’s for his own safety.

“Thankfully, our officers were able to recognize that he was displaying signs that he was having that emotional crisis, and they were able to kind of deescalate the situation even though the subject did attempt to take his own life. They were able to get him under control, get him the help he needed.”

Democratic judge under fire after slashing serial offender’s bond in half. The freed criminal went on to shoot 2 Houston police officers, killing 1.

Police in Houston, Texas, are demanding answers after one of their own was shot and killed by a serial criminal who was allowed to walk freely after a judge significantly lowered his bond.

Houston Police Officers’ Union President Doug Griffith called on Harris County Judge Greg Glass to resign this week, arguing that the Democratic judge’s failure to administer justice directly resulted in the death of one police officer and serious injury to another.

“He needs to have the integrity to step down,” the union president said, according to KPRC-TV. “Until he decides to step up and explain himself, we will continue to come after him. I will actively search for people who will run against him.”


Houston Police Department to escort body of Senior Police Officer William ‘Bill’ Jeffrey Wednesday

www.youtube.com

What happened?

On Monday, serial criminal Deon Ledet, 30 — whose lengthy rap sheet included aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, burglary, evading arrest, and most recent, felony possession — shot and killed 30-year police veteran Sr. Officer William “Bill” Jeffrey. At the time, Jeffrey was attempting to arrest Ledet on a high-level narcotics charge.

Another officer, Sgt. Michael Vance, was also shot during the arrest. His recovery process is expected to take several months. Ledet was killed in the shootout.

The incident immediately caused an uproar in the community, as police claimed the atrocity could easily have been avoided if the justice system had done its job. In short, Ledet should never have been out on the streets.

According to court records, Ledet had been arrested a whopping 18 times since 2008. In lieu of his criminal record, prosecutors were adamant that Ledet be denied bond and placed behind bars pending trial for two 2020 felony drug charges.

But Glass evidently disagreed. First, he chose to set bond. Then, in Nov. 2020, when the district attorney’s office requested that the twice-convicted felon’s bond be revoked, Glass responded by cutting the bond amounts in half, from $20,000 and $40,000 to $10,000 and $20,000.

Additionally, Ledet was supposed to be administered a GPS ankle monitor, but he never showed up for his appointment.

What has been the reaction?

Union president Griffith and multiple local news reporters have attempted to reach out to Glass for comment or explanation for his actions, but the judge has so far remained silent. In June, KTRK-TV reported that Glass is one of four local justices who has not held court in more than a year and a half.

“He needs to be out in the forefront explaining himself as to why he did what he did,” Griffith said this week. “It’s sick to see this happen over and over again, and Judge Glass, you have some explaining to do.”

“He told [Ledet] he needed to get an ankle monitor and did that happen? No, it did not,” Griffith added. “His bond was revoked, and he was still out on the streets.”

Deported Haitians reportedly assaulted pilots, injured three ICE officers

Haitians deported to Haiti from the U.S. attacked pilots and injured three ICE officers, NBC News reported, citing a source acquainted with internal reports regarding the incident.

The incident ensued after a plane transporting single adult males arrived and released the individuals to Haitian authorities on the tarmac, according to the outlet. The source said some of the men stormed a different aircraft that had been transporting families.

The men attacked the pilots of that aircraft while the families were still on the plane. Three ICE officers got attacked on that aircraft as well, with each sustaining non-life-threatening injuries, according to the source.

“On Tuesday, Sept. 21, some adult migrants caused two separate disruptions on the tarmac after deplaning in Port-au-Prince, Haiti,” a DHS spokesperson said in a statement, according to NBC News. “Haitian crowd control officers responded to both incidents and resolved the situations. ICE fully respects the rights of all people to peacefully express their opinions, while continuing to perform its immigration enforcement mission consistent with our priorities, federal law and agency policy.”

The Associated Press reported that dozens of people deported to Haiti from the U.S. attempted to get back onto an aircraft that had touched down in Haiti’s capital on Tuesday.

The outlet reported that a security guard shut the aircraft door as some people started tossing shoes at the plane, shouting, “This is abuse!” and “How is this possible?”

The AP said that the group of women and men had deplaned the second of four plane flights that arrived Tuesday.

Maxine Orélien was one of the people seeking to get back on the aircraft, according to the AP.

“What can we provide for our family?” he said. “We can’t do anything for our family here. There is nothing in this country.”

Video posted on Twitter shows objects being thrown at an aircraft.

The deportation flights began after thousands of migrants, including many Haitians, congregated in Del, Rio, Texas.

As of Tuesday, slightly more than 1,000 of the Haitian migrants had been removed to Haiti, NBC News reported, citing two sources familiar with the operations.

The Del Rio debacle represents yet another chapter in America’s ongoing border crisis.

Southwest land border encounters for the month of August ticked down slightly to 208,887 from 213,534 in July, according to data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Previously, the numbers had been on the rise every month during fiscal year 2021, which runs from October 2020 through September 2021.

Kamala Suddenly Reappears to Talk About the Border, but CBP Officers Let Her Have It – RedState

Kamala Harris has been completely missing in action when it comes to doing anything that might actually resolve the border crisis.

It’s gotten so bad, you even hear folks like MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle asking “Where’s Kamala” in all this?

But now, with the fake Border Patrol ‘whipping’ Haitians story, Harris is suddenly speaking up about the border.

Harris is all-in on the apparent Democratic talking points on the issue, calling it “horrible.”

From Fox News:

“What I saw depicted about those individuals on horseback treating human beings the way they were, was horrible,” Harris told reporters. “And I fully support what is happening right now, which is a thorough investigation into exactly what is going on there. But human beings should never be treated that way. And I’m deeply troubled about it. And I’ll also be talking to Secretary [Alejandro] Mayorkas about it today.”

Treated what way? Told they couldn’t break the law and enter illegally? Interdicted from coming in by using a horse to block their way? Exactly what was “horrible” here about enforcing the law that she supposedly has sworn to uphold?

That’s the other thing here. This isn’t separate from her. This is her responsibility — remember the “Biden-Harris” responsibility and her responsibility directly as border ‘czarina.’ She’s concerned about the Haitians? Where has she been while they’ve been congregating and living under the International Bridge in squalor now for days? She’s only shown up now, thinking she has a story on which she can foist the blame on someone else — the CBP. But it’s all on her and Biden anyway.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, and DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas (after he got the talking points) all signed aboard the horrible narrative, although Mayorkas first led with the truth — that no one whipped anyone.

Now, the CBP isn’t letting some of the Democrats and Biden officials throw them under the bus either. They’ve been busting their butts for months having to deal with all the ways that the Biden team has broken the system and thrown it into complete chaos. They’re doing the best they can — this isn’t on them. It’s on the Biden folks who seem to want to continue the chaos and open the doors to anyone.

Border Patrol agents who spoke to Fox News were angered by the pile-on from the administration, and accused it of trying to deflect from its inability to control the border.

“This whole situation is blowing up and even liberals are turning on this administration,” one agent told Fox News. “[Harris] is placing blame on agents to deflect because she and Biden are not going to change how they are handling this.”

Another source was more blunt, saying that the outrage “just proves what absolute idiots they are.”

“With basic knowledge and two brain cells, anyone knows those agents use split reins. They do use them as a whip, on their horses,” the agent said. “This helps get a quicker response from the horse to move out when needed, especially when the horse may be hesitant with groups of people or other animals.”

“Again it is clear that those ‘in charge,’ a term that is disgusting to use, have no clue about our operations and frankly operate by ignorance and unhinged emotions,” the agent said.

Exactly. This isn’t about reality or truth — it’s always about power and whatever narrative they’re trying to sell.

Biden DOJ Clamps Down on Federal Law Enforcement Officers, Largely Bans Use of Certain Police Techniques

The U.S. Department of Justice announced that federal officers will in most cases be banned from using chokeholds and making unannounced entries when serving warrants.

Barring situations where the use of deadly force is authorized, historic methods used by law endorsement officers to corral unruly subjects or to surprise potentially dangerous criminals through so-called “no-knock” warrants are banned effective immediately.

The department said in a news release Tuesday that the changes were adopted following an internal review.

“The Department of Justice today announced written department-wide policies explicitly prohibiting the use of ‘chokeholds’ and  ‘carotid restraints’ unless deadly force is authorized, and limiting the circumstances in which the department’s federal law enforcement components are authorized to use unannounced entries,” the news release said.

The changes, along with a newly implemented department-wide body camera policy, came following a review by Deputy Attorney General Lisa O. Monaco.

Attorney General Merrick Garland praised the new policy for federal officers working under the DOJ in a statement issued with the department news release.

“Building trust and confidence between law enforcement and the public we serve is central to our mission at the Justice Department,” Garland said. “The limitations implemented today on the use of ‘chokeholds,’ ‘carotid restraints’ and ‘no-knock’ warrants, combined with our recent expansion of body-worn cameras to DOJ’s federal agents, are among the important steps the department is taking to improve law enforcement safety and accountability.”

Monaco said she recommended all federal law enforcement agencies adopt universal standards intended to build “trust” with communities.

“As members of federal law enforcement, we have a shared obligation to lead by example in a way that engenders the trust and confidence of the communities we serve,” Monaco said.

Do you agree with the DOJ’s changes?

“It is essential that law enforcement across the Department of Justice adhere to a single set of standards when it comes to ‘chokeholds,’ ‘carotid restraints’ and ‘no-knock’ entries. This new policy does just that and limits the circumstances in which these techniques can be used.”

The new policy states that chokeholds are permitted “when the officer has a reasonable belief that the subject of such force poses an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury to the officer or to another person.”

With regard to “no-knock” warrants, the policy states: “Federal agents are generally required to ‘knock and announce’ their identity, authority and purpose, and demand to enter before entry is made to execute a warrant in a private dwelling.”

An exception to the new rule notes that “there are some circumstances where unannounced entries are authorized.”

“The new policy generally limits the use of ‘no knock’ entries in connection with the execution of a warrant to situations where an agent has reasonable grounds to believe that knocking and announcing the agent’s presence would create an imminent threat of physical violence to the agent and/or another person,” the DOJ announced.

Local police departments that work alongside federal agents will also be subject to the new restrictions.

The DOJ did not offer any specific examples where either a chokehold or a so-called “no-knock” warrant have gone wrong.

However, two high-profile cases last year caused nationwide protests and led to rioting.

George Floyd in Minneapolis was said to have died after being deprived of air following an incident with police. A later review concluded Floyd had at least one drug in his system — fentanyl — which is a respiratory depressant.

Another case was that of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky. Taylor was killed by police, who were serving a warrant against her boyfriend, after a gunfight ensued.

It was widely reported that the incident began when police served a no-knock warrant, but Taylor’s then-boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, later confirmed that police officers did knock on the door before entering the apartment shared by the couple, Business Insider reported.

Border Patrol Agent Wants SCOTUS To Make It Effectively Impossible To Sue Abusive Federal Officers – Reason.com

In Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (1971), the U.S. Supreme Court held that federal officers can be held civilly liable—sued—for conduct that violates constitutional rights. In a recent legal filing, a federal Border Patrol agent asked the Court to “reconsider Bivens” and make it effectively impossible to sue rogue federal officers over their rights-violating conduct. To make matters worse, some members of the Supreme Court might be willing to take the agent up on the offer.

The case is Egbert v. Boule. Robert Boule owns a bed-and-breakfast in Washington state near the U.S.-Canadian border. Border Patrol agent Erik Egbert wanted to question one of Boule’s guests, a Turkish national, about his immigration status. Boule asked the agent to leave his property but Egbert refused. Egbert then allegedly shoved Boule against a car and pushed him to the ground, injuring Boule’s back. Boule later complained to Egbert’s superiors about this mistreatment. In retaliation for that complaint, the agent asked the IRS to investigate Boule’s tax status. Boule was audited.

Boule filed a Bivens complaint against Egbert, suing the agent in federal court for violating his rights under both the First Amendment (for retaliating against Boule’s lawful speech complaining about the agent’s conduct) and the Fourth Amendment (for refusing to leave Boule’s property and using force against him).

Boule prevailed at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, which said that any hesitancy about letting this lawsuit move forward in federal court is “outweighed by compelling interests in favor of protecting United States citizens from unlawful activity by federal agents within the United States.”

Egbert and his lawyers now want the Supreme Court to overturn that 9th Circuit decision in the name of greater judicial deference toward federal law enforcement. This case, they argue in a petition seeking review, “arises in a setting raising exceptionally sensitive questions about whether recognizing Bivens actions will undercut the ability of Border Patrol agents to fulfill their basic mission of securing the border, enforcing the immigration laws, and protecting national security.”

The Bivens precedent has its critics on the High Court and this petition is directed squarely at them. Justice Clarence Thomas, for example, has argued that “the analysis underlying Bivens cannot be defended.” Thomas thinks Bivens went wrong because the federal courts have no business recognizing such federal causes for action absent a congressional statute.

But Thomas sells Bivens short. As I have previously argued, “the idea that federal judges have the authority to impose damages against lawless federal officers is as old as the republic—older, in fact, since it comes from venerable British common law judgments that directly influenced the founding generation.”

Rather than eliminate Bivens, as this allegedly abusive federal agent wants, the Supreme Court should strengthen the precedent so that even more victims of rights-violating federal officers can get their respective days in court.

Police chief encourages officers to collect social media ID from everyone they stop

It’s official: Joe Biden has announced that his Administration will be forcing COVID vaccinations on nearly 1/3rd of American citizens, blatantly disregarding the personal objections of millions of people and moving America ever closer towards a medical dictatorship.

We cannot stand for this unprecedented overreach, and we will not submit to Biden’s tyrannical public coercion efforts.

Please SIGN this urgent petition informing the President that you will NOT comply with these unconstitutional vaccine mandate orders issued by the Biden Administration, and that elected officials should act in their capacity to block these intrusive demands.

On Thursday, September 9th, Joe Biden announced the latest round of federal orders meant to further coerce large swaths of the public into getting the COVID vaccine — many against their will.

While the legal standing of these measures is, at best, dubious, the Biden Administration appears more ready than ever to gut our individual rights and practically erase medical autonomy in our country.

This latest escalation in overreach was announced via a televised speech in which Biden outlined a new “six-point plan” that includes far more than just six avenues to achieve mass medical compliance.

Among the most egregious new federal mandates are the following:

  • A requirement that all private businesses employing more than 100 people mandate their workers get the Covid-19 vaccine or submit to weekly testing (to be implemented by way of a new Department of Labor rule)
  • A requirement that all federal employees and federal contractors get the COVID vaccine
  • A requirement that all healthcare workers in facilities that receive reimbursement from Medicare and/or Medicaid (an estimated 17 million) get the Covid-19 vaccine without an alternative testing option
  • A requirement that all Head Start teachers get the COVID vaccine
  • A federal effort to lobby states to implement vaccine mandates for all school employees, and require regular testing of all students and school staff
  • A federal effort to lobby entertainment venues to require proof of vaccination or testing in order to grant entry to the public
  • A continuation of mask mandates on all federal properties and during interstate travel (i.e. planes, trains, buses)

All in all, these new vaccine mandates, which will go into effect within the coming weeks, will affect an estimated 100 million American workers — 2/3rds of the entire workforce!

And, according to an administration official, violations of these unconstitutional requirements could result in fines of up to $14,000.

While this is clearly a political ploy on the part of the Joe Biden and his team of power-hungry Washington insiders to shift the focus from their disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the American public knows better: After nearly a year and a half’s worth of arbitrary, ever-changing, and unconstitutional government mandates in response to the COVID outbreak, it was always a given that the Biden Administration would ramp things up even further when it behooved them.

And now, it would seem that time has officially come.

“This is not about freedom or personal choice,” Biden uttered in his remarks, confirming his administration’s blatant dismissal of all Americans’ right(s) to accept or decline the experimental Covid-19 vaccine.

This is a stunning reversal from Biden’s declaration last December that “I don’t think [the vaccine] should be mandatory, I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory.”

In fact, Biden even confirmed his intention to flout states’ rights in the process, warning that “If these governors won’t help us beat the pandemic I’ll use my power as president to get them out of the way.”

These are not the words of an “empathetic” leader; these are the words of an aspiring dictator. And, for the time being, the only way to stop Joe Biden’s tyranny is through mass noncompliance.

As we’ve said from the beginning, science, basic logic, and common sense should dictate policy regarding COVID and the Delta variant.

But Joe Biden and the federal government have long abandoned those principles throughout this crisis, culminating into this disturbing yet inevitable flurry of intrusive vaccine mandates that use people’s jobs, individual autonomy, and livelihood as leverage.

This assault on our individual rights, private businesses, and American workers cannot be tolerated, and the easiest way to combat these unlawful orders is to just say NO.

Please SIGN and SHARE this most important petition letting Joe Biden know that you will NOT comply with the unconstitutional medical demands being made by this administration, and that action should be taken to block any intrusive action against working Americans and private employers.

Thank you!

Six Capitol police officers face disciplinary action for Jan. 6 conduct

The Capitol Police Office of Professional Responsibility is recommending disciplinary action against six officers for their conduct in response to the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

The OPR recommended disciplinary action for conduct unbecoming in three of the cases, failure to comply with directives in one of the cases, improper remarks in one case, and “improper dissemination” in one case.

The department said it had provided the Justice Department with details of the administrative cases “as part of the ongoing discovery in the prosecution of the January 6 rioters,” but said the officers’ identities were redacted.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office found insufficient evidence to charge any of the officers with a crime, according to the Capitol Police’s statement.

In a statement, the Capitol Police said the OPR launched 38 internal investigations into officer conduct following the Jan. 6 riot, and was able to identify the officers involved in 26 of the cases. No wrongdoing was found for 20 of the cases in which specific officers were identified.

The Capitol Police said another administrative case regarding an official accused of unsatisfactory performance and conduct unbecoming, which was launched after a criminal investigation, is still pending.

“The Department is committed to accountability when officers fail to meet the standards governed by USCP policies and the congressional community’s expectations,” the statement said. “The six sustained cases should not diminish the heroic efforts of the United States Capitol Police officers.”
