Drunken NYC cop unleashes racist terror on black family after mistakenly barging into their home

Published

An apparently intoxicated New York City police officer is accused of kicking down a black family’s door and making racist threats while vacationing in Tennessee.

The officer, whose name has not been released, allegedly broke into the family’s Nashville home after mistaking it for the Airbnb he had rented while visiting Music City, reported the Tennessean.

Nashville police are investigating the July 9 incident in the 12 South neighborhood, where residents are fed up with rowdy tourists staying in rental properties for weekend vacations.

The officer allegedly kicked in the door at 2:30 a.m. after Conese Halliburton’s teenage son heard him shouting outside from the front lawn.

“This is my motherf*cking house!” the man repeatedly screamed after barging into the family’s home.

The 40-year-old Halliburton called police and begged for help as her two oldest sons, ages 17 and 11, held the intruder in a back hallway.

The man left the house after 911 dispatchers told her police were nearby, and a neighbor’s surveillance camera caught the off-duty officer making racist threats on his way outside.

“Try to shoot me, and I’ll break every f*cking bone in your f*cking neck,” the officer said, before calling the family “f*cking n*ggers.”

Officers were unable to find the suspect after they arrived, but Halliburton and a neighbor confronted him the following morning at the Airbnb — and surveillance video captured his apology for breaking into the house.

Halliburton called police again afterward, and they arrived two hours later to investigate.

“It’s traumatizing,” said Halliburton, who also has an 8-year-old child. “I’m working on no sleep at all. I’m out here having nightmares, my kids are having nightmares. They’re staying up all night because he’s still out there.”

Nashville police confirmed the New York City Police Department officer returned for questioning earlier this month, but no charges have been filed in the investigation, which remains ongoing.

Jeffrey Epstein wasn’t even a competent investor: report

Published

on

There can be no doubt that high-powered hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein would rather the public know him for his prominence and success as an investor than for the allegations of child sex trafficking, for which he has now been indicted and faces life in prison. And there has for years been mystique surrounding Epstein's business — his wealth fund is so exclusive that it reportedly requires a billion dollars up front from clients.

But according to the Dow Jones' periodical Barron's, Epstein may not even be good at that.

Jon Stewart blasts ‘abomination’ of Rand Paul trying to ‘balance the budget on the backs of’ 9/11 responders

Published

On Wednesday's edition of Fox News' "Special Report," comedian and activist Jon Stewart slammed Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) for blocking unanimous consent for a bill to support health care for 9/11 first responders.

"Pardon me if I'm not impressed in any way by Rand Paul's fiscal responsibility virtue signaling," said Stewart to anchor Bret Baier, who appeared on the show with first responder and activist John Feal.

He added that Paul's complaint, that the bill was unfunded, rings hollow given that he "added hundreds of billions of dollars to our deficit" with the GOP tax cuts for billionaires. He castigated Paul for trying to "balance the budget on the backs of the 9/11 first responder community."

Republicans will never say that racism is ‘racism’ — basically because they’re racist

Published

on

Is there any expression of racism that Republicans will actually admit is racism? It's a question on a lot of progressive minds in the wake of Donald Trump demonizing female congresswomen of color with the "go back" canard that white nationalists and other assorted racists have long used to abuse anyone with heritage they dislike, whether that heritage is Jewish, Irish, Italian, African, Latin American or Muslim. Telling someone to "go back" is, in the ranks of racist statements, right up there with calling a person the N-word or some other rank slur. Yet, there still appears to be resistance among Republicans to admitting that is racism, which leads many on the left to wonder: If this doesn't count, then what could possibly count?
