Oklahoma town’s 4th police chief of 2017 caught on camera making obscene gestures with teenage girls

Published

The fourth police chief hired by the Colbert, Oklahoma City Council so far in 2017 is already facing a scandal.

As Raw Story reported in August, newly-appointed Police Chief Bart Alsbrook was revealed to be a leader in the “Blood & Honour” skinhead organization and the owner of multiple racist websites.

Chief Alsbrook attempted to resign after being exposed for owning websites selling, “Hitler Youth, KKK, SS, swastika and confederate flags.” City Hall, however, wanted to keep him.

After continued community pressure, Alsbrook was finally ousted as chief. The Colbert City Council then hired David Peterson as the town’s forth police chief in 2017.

A social media photo that went viral shows Chief Peterson sitting in his patrol car, flipping the bird at the camera, KXII reports. Standing next to the car are two teenage girls giving the same gesture, but with each girl using both hands.

Residents of the town are outraged, KXII reported.

“That’s disgraceful, I mean, what kind of police department does that?” local resident Charles Davis asked.

“That is outrageous,” resident Judy Noel said. “Our kids are worth more than that.

The ‘War on Christmas’ was started more than 500 years ago — by Christians

If it feels like the “War on Christmas” is getting really old, it is. Almost 15 years have passed since Bill O’Reilly first opened December with a segment called, “Christmas Under Siege”—ten long years in which his cadences and refrains and echoing chorus have become as familiar to most Americans as Handel’s Messiah. More familiar, in fact.

Not that O’Reilly invented the idea. During the 1920’s, Henry Ford’s newspaper published a series of anti-Semitic articles titled, “The International Jew: The World’s Foremost Problem.” Among the complaints:

Surprise! IG report finds anti-Clinton bias at the FBI

Published

on

The Justice Department inspector general's report debunked President Donald Trump’s repeated claims that the FBI’s Russia probe was launched out of anti-Trump bias by FBI leaders. Conversely, it did find anti-Hillary Clinton bias among FBI agents.

Trump claimed for years that the FBI investigation was opened because of anti-Trump bias by FBI leaders, citing text messages sent between former top FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page that criticized him during the 2016 campaign. Inspector General Michael Horowitz concluded that neither Strzok nor Page were in a position to start an investigation into Trump’s campaign and concluded that the FBI probe was justified, refuting claims that the probe was opened because of bias by the FBI’s top officials.

Here are 5 huge lies Republicans are telling about the new report on the Russia probe

Published

on

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz's new report on the origins of Crossfire Hurricane, commonly called the Russia investigation, blew up many of the right wing's favorite talking points and conspiracy theories about the FBI. At the same time, it exposed real failures of procedures meant to protect American citizens against undue surveillance and exposed the need for serious law enforcement reforms.

But most Republicans seem unfazed that the report undercuts President Donald Trump's repeated accusations of "treason" and a "witch hunt," and they show no genuine interest in pushing policy to generally make law enforcement more responsible. Instead, they're trying to pin the blame on the Obama administration and bias against Trump, even though these claims actually distract from the genuine problems uncovered.
