Cop impersonator goes on racist rant in Chicago bar before shooting Latino man in the face with pellet gun

Published

A Chicago man with a history of hate crimes was arrested once again after going on a racist rant at a local bar and shooting a man he believed was an illegal immigrant in the face with a pellet gun while claiming to be a police officer, reports the Chicago Tribune.

Michael Groh, 45, is being held on $1 million bail after being charged with a felony hate crime, impersonation of a peace officer and aggravated battery, police stated. He was also charged with possessing a replica firearm, a misdemeanor.

According to police reports, Groh accosted a 39-year-old Latino man, calling him “a f*cking Mexican” and demanding to see his green card after the man said he was from South America.

Assistant State’s Attorney Barry Quinn said Groh continued to yell racial slurs at the man, who responded back before attempting to leave the bar. Groh then announced that he was a Chicago police officer and pulled out a Smith & Wesson pellet gun. He shot the man three times in the head, hitting him once in the eye.

Groh was subdued by the bartender until police arrived and took him into custody.

According to police, Groh was wearing a tactical vest, carrying two metal badges and handcuffs.   Groh also had a handwritten ID card indicating he was in law enforcement.

Groh has a felony hate crime conviction dating back to 2004 after being asked to leave a car dealership for being unruly, prosecutors said.

During that incident, he pushed a black employee while using racial slurs and threatening to kill the man. He received 175 days in jail, two years of “intensive probation,” and was ordered to perform 200 hours of community service.

According to police, Groh’s latest victim was rushed to a nearby hospital where he had “immediate surgery” and may lose his left eye.

Published

on

President Donald Trump was the target of a Democratic press conference with four Congresswomen of color who were calling him out for racist tweets telling them to go back to their countries.

The women attacked every policy that Trump seems to be losing on. Trump seemed to try and pivot to another issue entirely, blaming former President Barack Obama for building the cages that he's putting children in after he takes them from their parents.

The Obama Administration built the Cages, not the Trump Administration! DEMOCRATS MUST GIVE US THE VOTES TO CHANGE BAD IMMIGRATION LAWS.

Trump goes off on ‘socialist, communist’ rant saying Democrats are ‘pro Al-Qaeda’

Published

President Donald Trump took his racist comments even further Monday afternoon, saying that Democrats are now pro-terrorism.

"We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!" Trump ranted. "It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country. They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, “some people did something.” Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more. Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!"

‘Bond is dead’: White dudes flip out over casting of a black woman as next Agent 007

Published

on

On Monday, the Daily Beast reported that the new 007 -- the special agent in the James Bond series -- will be portrayed by the black actress Lashana Lynch.

The announcement set off predictably racist and sexist reactions.

Perhaps the most prominent right-winger to voice his displeasure was Ben Shapiro, who complained that it didn't make sense for Bond to be a woman because of the character's signature seduction moves.

"Bond is about the guns and the girls," Shapiro said, noting that a woman in a seductive role was not realistic.
