Missouri teen charged with murder after cops accidentally kill young mom who tried to turn him in

Published

A Missouri teen has been charged with second-degree murder and a host of other charges after police accidentally killed a 21-year-old mother of two who was trying to help them arrest him for probation violations, reports the Riverfront Times.

According to the report,  19-year-old Mason Farris of Aurora, was arraigned on Friday with second-degree murder, two counts of assault, resisting arrest and armed criminal action that led to the death of Savannah Hill.

The report states that Farris was avoiding police after violating his parole on multiple meth charges and was in a car with Hill who was aware of his legal problems and attempted to help police take him into custody. Calling police from a gas station, the woman conspired with police to have her car pulled over with Farris in it where he could be taken into custody after being trapped inside due to the childproof locks.

However, after the car was pulled over at the appointed spot, Farris instead jumped into the front seat and shoved Hill’s foot down on the gas pedal to drive away, with the car — which was in reverse —  hitting and injuring police officer Chris Kozisek. A second officer, David Chatman, opened fire on the car, hitting Hill.

Hill died on Monday from her injuries.

According to the woman’s father, he doesn’t believe that the police were at fault and thanked them for clearing his daughter’s name.

“There are bad officers just like there are good officers,” Chris Nethery, the  son of a police officer stated. “Which ones were involved in this one, I have no idea.”

In a statement he added, “At this time the family is ecstatic that we have the first part of this investigation that proves that our initial feelings — that Savannah was not in control of the vehicle, that she was assisting law enforcement and ultimately became an innocent victim of this tragic incident.”

Farris is currently being held without bail as a flight risk.

Ocasio-Cortez dunks on Liz Cheney again for using Nazi language to defend Trump: ‘Enjoy defending concentration camps’

Published

on

Dick Cheney's daughter continued to receive ferocious backlash after she falsely claimed that Donald Trump's tent cities are not "concentration camps."

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) demanded Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) learn history -- while revealing she knew little -- during a Twitter outburst.

“The U.S. is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are. … ‘Never Again’ means something ... we need to do something about it," Ocasio-Cortez noted.

Right-wing radio show ratings tank as host undermines Trump’s ‘promises made, promises kept’ re-election slogan

Published

on

The fact Donald Trump's base sticks with him no matter what he does is negatively impacting a conservative radio host attempting to hold the president accountable for his campaign promises.

Michael Alan Weiner, who goes by the stage name Michael Savage, hosts the "Savage Nation" radio show.

The host once praised Trump as the "Winston Churchill of our time" has been criticizing the president recently, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

"Now Mr. Savage is an outlier once again, dismayed more each day as the budget deficit continues to swell, thousands of new migrants are apprehended at the border, and the wall Mr. Trump promised to erect and make Mexico pay for remains unbuilt," The Times explained.

LISTEN: Here’s the creepy broadcast at Trump’s rally telling supporters the right way to deal with protesters

Published

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump officially kicked off his 2020 re-election campaign in Orlando, Florida.

Those who entered the venue were treated to a pleasant female voice booming out instructions to protestors — and a creepy warning.

"While we all have the rights to free speech, this is a private event paid for and hosted by Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., and you came to hear the president," said the voice. "To accommodate the right to free speech and peaceful assembly, while ensuring an orderly rally, we have provided a secure area outside the venue for all protesters, and we ask anyone wishing to demonstrate to please exit to that secure area."
