WATCH: Denver deputy pulls gun on debt collector trying to deliver $150 overdue bill

Published

on

A Denver sheriff’s deputy has been suspended after being charged with a felony for pulling a gun on a process server who was attempting to hand him papers seeking payment on an overdue bill.

In video provided to KUSA, Bret Martin Carbone is seen pointing a gun at Tom Mills after Mills knocked on his door and tried to hand him the legal documents.

According to Mills, he films all of his interactions as proof that he did his job, but was surprised to see a gun pointed out him.

“I don’t like going up to the houses in the afternoons and evenings anymore,” Tom Mills explained. “I’ve had people upset where they yell at you, call you names. But the physical part of bringing up a gun and holding it to you, I’ve never experienced that in my last 25 years. $150 is all he was being served for.”

In the video, recorded in two parts, Mills is seen knocking on Carbone’s door who lies to Mills about his identity. After double checking the address and his information, Mills knocks on the door again, only to be greeted by a handgun pointed at him.

Informed by Mills that he was just being served with papers, Carbone threatened him saying, “You’re going to put that down and get off my property. This is my property and I can do what I want!”

“Being a Marine, you’d think you’d be trained to have somebody hold a gun to you and you not be scared, it scared the bejeebes out of me,” Mills said. “I’ve never had somebody hold a gun to me. There was no purpose in it. I don’t understand what he was thinking by pulling the gun.”

According to the report, Carbone — who started working for the Denver Sheriff Department in January, 2016 — was immediately put on administrative leave and has been charged with felony menacing for the Nov. 6 incident.

Carbone is due back in court on December 19.

Published

Sen. Kamala Harris shut down MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes during a post-debate interview on Tuesday evening.

Hayes questioned Harris about her call for Twitter to follow their terms of service and kick President Donald Trump off of the platform.

"Do you think he puts people’s lives in danger when he targets them in tweets?" Hayes asked.

"Absolutely," Harris replied.

"Do you think he knows that?" Hayes asked.

"Does it matter?" Harris replied.

"The fact is he did it. The fact is that he is irresponsible, he is erratic," she explained. "He is like a 2-year-old with a machine gun."

Democrats blast Trump and demand his impeachment at CNN debate

Published

on

Democratic White House hopefuls united in searing condemnation of Donald Trump during their fourth debate Tuesday, saying the president has broken the law, abused his power, and deserves to be impeached.

From the opening moments, most of the dozen candidates on stage launched fierce broadsides against Trump over the Ukrainian scandal at the heart of the impeachment inquiry.

"The impeachment must go forward," said Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is neck and neck with former vice president Joe Biden at the head of the 2020 nominations race.

"Impeachment is the way that we establish that this man will not be permitted to break the law over and over without consequences," she thundered.

Here are 3 winners and 4 losers from the CNN/NYT Democratic presidential primary debate

Published

on

Twelve Democrats took to the stage Tuesday night for yet another debate in the party's 2020 president primary hosted by CNN and the New York Times.

After only ten candidates qualified for the previous debate, an additional two — Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and wealthy donor and former hedge fund manager Tom Steyer — made it to the stage this round for an even more crowded event.

The candidates discussed a range of important policy issues, but since the format was a debate, and they're all competing for the same nomination, it is ultimately most critical who won and who lost the night. Here are three winners and four losers — necessarily a subjective assessment, of course — from the debate:
