Watch: Retired LA cop reacts to new bodycam video of police ‘execution’ of Alton Sterling

Published

on

The police officer who killed Alton Sterling was fired Saturday afternoon after police released graphic new bodycam footage shows what some are describing as an “execution.”

“Don’t you move, I’m gonna shoot you in your f*cking head,” screams officer Blane Salamoni, within seconds of making contact with Sterling outside the bodega where he was selling DVDs.

The extremely disturbing video of Blane Salamoni killing Sterling after a confrontation in which Sterling had his hands up is below.

CNN panelist Cheryl Dorsey, a retired Los Angeles police officer who wrote a book about police violence, pulled no punches in reacting on CNN.

“People are tired of these investigations happening behind closed doors and then seeing officials come out there are make the same pronouncements,” said panelist. “People want transparency. What do I mean? Bring it in front of a jury… instead of an . official making a unilateral decision not to charge.”

“That was an execution,” Dorsey said. “We heard those officers threat Mr. Sterling and then they did exactly what they said they were going to do.”

“I don’t care if they’re disruptive or they’re not cooperating, you don’t get to use expletives when you refer to them. You don’t get to threaten them, I will shoot you in your effing head if you don’t be still” she said. “The fact that this officer got fired beings me no comfort. He needs to be charged with a criminal offense, he needs to be convicted of a criminal offense.”

Jeffrey Epstein’s IT consultant reveals he saw girls who ‘couldn’t have more than 15 or 16’ on private island

Published

ABC News broke a story just after midnight Thursday about a former IT consultant of Jeffrey Epstein's who resigned because he couldn't take some of the things he was seeing on Epstein's private island compound.

The island, which has been called "pedophile island" by locals, had "topless women everywhere.

"There were photos of topless women everywhere," said contractor Steve Scully, who began working for Epstein in 1999 and continued for six years. "On his desk, in his office, in his bedroom."

‘Names are going to start coming out’: New report says more elites will be exposed in the Epstein case — and ‘DC is on edge’

Published

Will other powerful people — presumably men — get taken down as a result of the sex trafficking case against Jeffrey Epstein?

That’s the hope of many closer followers of the story, but it’s far from clear what, if any, fallout there will be. Epstein’s connections to Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have raised suspicions about potential evidence of their wrongdoing, such suspicions remain unproven. Alan Dershowitz has already faced accusations of being involved in Epstein’s crimes, though he denies the charge vigorously.

But a new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman says that “DC is on edge” over the Epstein case, and any elites who have run in his circles could be involved. Dozens of girls, if not more, are believed to be involved in his alleged sex trafficking, and lawyers for some of the women who have accused Epstein are strongly suggesting that other high-profile figures will be implicated.

‘It’s so un-American’: Internet scorches Trump supporters for racist chants of ‘Send her back!’

Published

on

The ignoble highlight of President Donald Trump's rally in Greenville, North Carolina on Wednesday was when his fans doubled down on his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color and targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), chanting "Send her back! Send her back!"

Political commentators of all stripes were gobsmacked by the crowd's naked racism — and buried them in condemnation:

The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.
