WATCH: All hell breaks loose when bystanders stop NY cop from arresting girl who argued with him

Published

on

A New York City police officer thought better of arresting a 14-year-old girl who argued with him when spectators jumped to her defense, getting between the cop and young woman.

According to the Free Thought Project and the Copwatch Patrol Unit who posted the video on their Facebook page, police were responding to a report that a child had pushed a button on a police call box in the West Harlem neighborhood.

One officer questions two young females after dragging them over by his car by their arms.  After releasing both girls and climbing back into his car, a passing woman instructs one of the girls to get the officer’s badge number and full name.

While asking the officer for the information, telling him he had no right to manhandle her, the enraged officer leaps out of his car and attempts to grab her again.

Then all hell breaks loose as the girl pulls away from him and multiple bystanders jump in between the two, tugging the girl way from him while shouting at the officer that he has no cause to arrest her.

As his partner steps in — telling everyone to back off — the officer makes his way back to his car, once again attempting to grab the girl before giving up, getting into his car, and driving off.

As he pulls away, one man can be heard yelling, “Respect the neighborhood.”

Cory Booker planning to suspend his campaign if his fundraising does not improve: report

Published

on

On Saturday, NBC News reported that Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) has released a campaign memo indicating he will exit the Democratic presidential primary if he is unable to raise millions of dollars within days.

"Without a fundraising surge to close out this quarter, we do not see a legitimate long-term path forward," wrote campaign manager Addisu Demissie in the memo to staff ersand supporters. "The next 10 days will determine whether Cory Booker can stay in this race."

The memo added that it is likely that only four candidates presently have enough money to stay in the race for the long haul. These candidates are likely former Vice President Joe Biden, Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who report the largest fundraising hauls.

Trump snarls a press for pursuing Ukraine phone call complaint instead of reporting on debunked Biden story

Published

on

Donald Trump lashed out at the media for pursuing the story of a suppressed inspector general's report that he may have made an illegal promise to the president of Ukraine, saying they should be investigating former Vice President Joe Biden instead.

Taking to Twitter, the president wrote: "The Fake News Media and their partner, the Democrat Party, want to stay as far away as possible from the Joe Biden demand that the Ukrainian Government fire a prosecutor who was investigating his son, or they won’t get a very large amount of U.S. money, so they fabricate a..... story about me and a perfectly fine and routine conversation I had with the new President of the Ukraine. Nothing was said that was in any way wrong, but Biden’s demand, on the other hand, was a complete and total disaster. The Fake News knows this but doesn’t want to report!"

The new Rambo movie is essentially a MAGA fever dream of bigotry

Published

on

"Rambo: Last Blood," the latest in the long-running franchise about a traumatized war veteran (Sylvester Stallone) turned on-demand badass, is less an escapist action movie and more a dramatized manifestation of the most notorious sentences from Donald Trump's presidential campaign announcement speech: "They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people." Even for a series that has always been shaped by a right wing worldview, the only reason for this latest sequel to exist — besides generating profits from die-hard Stallone fans — is to validate MAGA-world bigotries about Mexicans.This article first appeared in Salon.
