Michigan Cops Handcuff 11-Year-Old at Gunpoint

Body cam footage shows Michigan cops handcuffing an 11-year-old at gunpoint while looking for an attempted murder suspect on December 6.

The only problem: the murder suspect was a 40-year-old white woman named Carrie Manning.

Footage from the 45-second clip shows Grand Rapids cops treating Honestie Hodges like an adult suspect as she screams in terror.

Honestie approaches police with  her hands up, but apparently approached too quickly for one of the officers.

He tells her to put her hands on her head, instructing her to turn around and walk backwards towards him.

“You’re fine. You’re not going to jail or anything,” one officer tells Honestie while he cuffs her as her mother screams at officers in the back ground.

“That’s my child!”

“She’s 11 years old!”

“I didn’t know what was going on,” Honestie, who was on her way to the store with her mom when police confronted them outside of their door, said.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” she told WXMI.

“I’ve never got in trouble by the Grand Rapids Police. I used to want to be a Grand Rapids police officer, but ever since that happened, I want nothing to do with them.”

Grand Rapids Police Chief  David Rahinsky said the officers acted incorrectly during a press conference, which can be seen below.

“Are there incidents where you deal with young people who present a danger to either other people or themselves? Yes,” Rahinsky told reporters.

“But I don’t believe this is one of them.”

“You listen to the 11-year-old’s response, it makes my stomach turn,” he said.

“It makes me physically nauseous.”

“I think we need to take a look at everything we do because if an officer can point to policy or can point to training or point to hiring and say, ‘This is what I was told, this is how I was taught, this is consistent with practice,’ then we’ve got a problem

 

Georgia Deputies Kill Dog, then Order Owner to Decapitate it

Georgia deputies forced a man to cut off the head of his dog after shooting it.

Or go to jail.

The man chose to decapitate his dog named Big Boy.

Big Boy’s owner Joe Goodwin recorded the incident with his cell phone.

Crawford County sheriff’s deputy James Hollis arrived at Goodwin’s home after Big Boy allegedly bit two people.

A Crawford County deputy shot the dog moments earlier.

The video begins with Hollis telling Crawford he’ll take him to jail unless he cuts off his dog’s head.

Goodwin wanted to take his dog to the vet.

“I tell you what,” Hollis yells at Crawford.

“I will (sic) takes you to jail and charge you and we’ll see how much a lawyer is then.”

“Charge me for what?”

“When I get there–when I get there and give you the charges.”

“With what? Are you going to make it up”

“I don’t make up anything. I’m gonna give you Georgia law, OK?” Hollis threatens.

“What’s the Georgia law? What law did I break?” Crawford asks.

“I tell you what, sir. You can sit there and try to record all you want, OK. We asking you to cut the dog’s head.”

“And you refusing right?”

“I ain’t even got a fucking knife to cut the mother fucker off,” Crawford tells the deputies before he begins to narrate.

“I have to cut my dog’s head off.”

“Because the cop just told me to.”

“Or if not, I’m going to jail, ya’ll.”

“That man right there. Then when I told him I did not want to cut my dog’s head off. He grabs me by the damn shirt and slams me against the truck, because I’m cussing.”

“It’s not against the law to cuss.”

Crawford County Sheriff Lewis Walker said Hollis shouldn’t have told Crawford to behead his dog.

“They did get someone on the phone with the health department that made an attempt to tell the gentleman what he would need to do,” Walker said.

Walker said it’s standard protocol to call the health department when they think a dog might be rabid.

“That shouldn’t have been done on the scene from what I gathered”, Walker told 13WMAZ.

“We would not transfer an animal in that situation. That’s up to the health department. We would respond, and we would notify them,”Walker said.

Video shows off-duty Lansing police officer pinning down teen and choking him, threatening his life

A video has surfaced on social media that shows a white suburban police officer pinning down an African American teen and threatening his life for trespassing.

It all started Saturday afternoon when a couple of teenage boys got into a fight with another group of boys. They were able to get away only to find themselves in a totally different and unexpected fight.

“You guys are on my f—ing property!” an off-duty Lansing police officer says in the video while pinning 15-year-old Jordan Brunson to the ground with his knee, his hand on the boy’s neck.

“Let me go!” Jordan says in the video.

“No, you are on my f—ing property. I could f—ing kill you,” the officer says.

Jordan’s friend was shooting the cell phone video, which is only a few minutes long.

“Tell your friend to come here right now,” the officer says.

At one point in the video, a woman walks outside the home and says, “You guys came to the wrong house.”

Moments earlier, Jordan says he was trying to help his friend who was sitting on the officer’s porch. He had been beaten up pretty bad in a fight earlier Saturday afternoon. WGN talked to Jordan at his home Monday night.

“I was examining him. I was going to go tell his grandmother,” Jordan said. He then says the officer came out of nowhere and grabbed them both.

WGN reporter Erik Runge: “You never heard the officer ask what you doing there?”

Jordan: “No.”

Runge: “Did you ever heard the officer say get off of my property.”

Jordan: “No.”

Runge: “Did he ever identify himself as a cop?”

Jordan: “No.”

Jordan’s aunt Lashawnya Brunson posted the video that Jordan’s friend recorded to Facebook. She says the officer’s behavior is outrageous.

“If he wasn’t an officer, just a regular man, would they do the same thing? No, he’d be locked up,” she said.

On Monday night, two police officers sat in an unmarked car keeping an eye on the officer’s home. No one came do the door when WGN knocked. Reporter Erik Runge left a note asking for his side of the story. So far, he hasn’t called.

The Lansing Police Department released as statement that says, in part:

“An off-duty Lansing police officer, outside on his personal property, became involved when he was approached by two other subjects involved in the fight. One of the juveniles had visible minor injuries, and the other was temporarily detained for further investigation until the arrival of on-duty officers.”

Jordan says neither he nor his friend was approached by officers at any time.

Jordan says the off-duty officer let him up when the on-duty officers arrived. Jordan’s family filed a police report and wants the officer brought up on charges

 

Cardondale Pennsylvania Police Refuse To Stop Using Altered U.S. Flag

Carbondale Pennsylvania Police Dept has refused to stop utilizing a altered U.S. Flag they are using on their facebook page,  instead removing reviews pointing out why using this flag in this manner is against U.S. flag code and a insult to many service men and women who have lost their lives honoring the U.S. flag. Flag code reads:

The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown.

So Carbondale P.D. had a opportunity to read hundreds of comments asking for their  altered flag used on their facebook page to be changed, there are several versions of Blue Lives Matter flags that do NOT go against the U.S. Flag Code. This is NOT anti-police rhetoric as Carbondale P.D. posted when they decided to close down the reviews and comments down due to so many people asking them NOT  to use a flag that offends many service men and women who have sacrificed to protect and honor our American Flag.

This is NO DIFFERENT then burning the flag, should black lives matter alter our U.S.Flag? How about Clowns lives matter should they have their version of a alter U.S. Flag?  Where does it end? THE U.S. FLAG IS SACRED LEAVE IT THE HELL ALONE!!!!!!

So they remove every comment that mentions the issue with bad reviews was due to the fact they are violating the U.S. Flag code, instead saying Anti-police groups where needlessly attacking them?  So now all you have is people that have NO idea what this is all about get to comment saying how cop haters ruin everything and NOT ONE COMMENT regarding freedom of speech or the fact this was ALL ABOUT CARBONDALE P.D. REFUSING TO RESPECT OUR AMERICAN FLAG. Instead of bringing people together as this is a very VALID CONCERN, they turn it around to cause even more division and hate.

assholes

ACCEPTABLE FLAGS FOR POLICE SUPPORT!!!
