Video shows Chicago cops trampling woman on dialysis to take down son who ignored them

Published

A 14-year-old girl in Chicago captured video of police barging into her home and arresting her uncle because he refused to stop and talk to them.

LeRoy Hubbard III told WMAQ that two police officers pulled up in a patrol car as he was walking home to his parent’s house on Friday night.

“They say, ‘Come here.’ So, I just keep walking,” Hubbard recalled.

According to Hubbard, officers then forced their way into his home, while his niece, Keeasia, filmed the entire thing.

“They start just going crazy in the house,” he pointed out.

WCAU reported that the video showed Hubbard’s mother, who was on a dialysis machine, being knocked to the floor as police struggled to handcuff him. Eventually, more officers arrived and Hubbard was placed in a chokehold.

“They charged me with assault but how did I assault anybody?” he asked. “They were just basically just assaulting my whole family so I had to give in just to make it stop.”

“I just went outside,” Keeasia said. “It was helicopters, it was police cars, just rushing in for one person.”

Hubbard’s father, Leroy, argued that the incident was “clearly police misconduct.” He said that his son did not have a criminal record, and that officers only treated him that way because he lived in a high crime area.

“They do this all the time,” he remarked. “As far as the police, they do this all the time. They will stop anybody on the street. They want to get lucky, think they’re going to get lucky you know somebody’s probably got something.”

Hubbard was expected in court on Tuesday to face charges for aggravated battery to a police officer.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe darkly warns why Rudy Giuliani’s ‘lies and gibberish’ are no laughing matter

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough laughed uproariously at Rudy Giuliani's careening denials and admissions to possible crimes involving Ukraine, and then darkly noted that his bizarre "gibberish" was straight out of the authoritarian handbook.

"Morning Joe" panelists cracked up at President Donald Trump's attorney angrily denying that he sought election help from Ukraine's government, only to even more angrily justify his reasons for doing what he had just denied.

"When it is going south you put gibberish on the air not to confuse people," said panelist Donny Deutsch, "all of a sudden it's just this noise that's not as distracting that makes you lightheaded."

CNN lays out damning timeline of Trump and Giuliani’s calls to Ukraine seeking dirt on Biden

Published

on

Following Rudy Giuliani's extraordinary appearance on CNN on Thursday night, where he may have admitted the commission of a crime, the hosts of CNN's "New Day" compiled a timeline linking the approximate date of Trump's phone call that was flagged by a whistleblower to subsequent events involving Ukraine.

According to the timeline, presented by hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, Trump spoke with the president of Ukraine on July 25, with Giuliani meeting with him later that month.

What followed was the August 12 whistleblower complaint and then Trump blocking aide to Ukraine by the end of the month.

‘Game changer’: Morning Joe panel nails Giuliani’s confessional outburst as evidence for Trump impeachment

Published

on

Panelists on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" agreed President Donald Trump's phone call to Ukraine's president should be a "game changer" -- and was clearly "impeachable."

The July 25 call appears to have triggered a complaint from a whistleblower, after the president allegedly offered military and financial aid to Ukraine in exchange for pursuing an investigation into Joe Biden's son doing business there.

"It does feel like a moment in time," said MSNBC's Donny Deutsch. "We've sat on this set after so many Trump's snafus and this is it -- this is a game changer. If the Democrats can't smell this. I've been going all along, step away from impeachment because when it's a process thing, when it's campaign finance, this is the big one. If this is the case, this is the Super Bowl, and the Democrats need to pounce aggressively."
