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.

Trump says he can ‘absolutely’ force governors to reopen churches if he decides to do so

Published

At Tuesday's coronavirus press briefing, President Donald Trump was pressed on whether he really has the authority to force governors to allow houses of worship to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic. "Can you explain what authority you had in mind when you said that you would do that?" asked a reporter.

The president emphasized that he does have the power — but did not elaborate on how specifically he would do so, and added that he doesn't think he will have to.

"I can absolutely do it if I want to," said Trump. "I don't think I'm going to have to, because it's starting to open up. We need our churches and our synagogues and our mosques. We want them open, churches, synagogues, mosques, and other — we want them open and we want them open as soon as possible."

At Tuesday's White House coronavirus press briefing, President Donald Trump got into an argument with Reuters correspondent Jeff Mason, when he commanded him to take off his protective face mask.

Mason refused to do so, at which point Trump mocked him, saying "You want to be politically correct."

Trump also repeated a line previously made by his press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, asking why former Vice President Joe Biden wore a mask when he was in public but not standing close to anyone, when he wasn't wearing a mask at home with his wife right next to him.
