Black good Samaritan helps his drunk neighbor back into his house — and then is arrested himself

Published

on

A black Marylander was arrested after helping his drunk neighbor get inside his house — and police told the good Samaritan that they thought he was the one who was inebriated.

WUSA9 reported that 23-year-old Samir Ahmed found his drunk neighbor passed out in his lawn on the morning of Sunday, November 17 and decided to walk him home.

When he came back, police — who had been called by someone else who was concerned about the drunk neighbor — had arrived.

Police claimed they smelled cannabis on Ahmed and that gave them probable cause to search him. Ahmed, those same officers claimed, resisted their attempts to search him.

In a video recorded by a bystander, neighbors can be heard insisting that the man lives in the neighborhood and had just helped a drunk person get home — to which an officer replied, “I think you’re the intoxicated one.”

In the nearly 18-minute long video, officers are heard laughing at the situation and telling bystanders who challenged Ahmed’s arrest that “we don’t answer to you.”

WUSA9 reported that following the arrest, Ahmed was charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and other unspecified offenses. He also was given a citation for a small amount of cannabis he had on him.

‘I’m entitled’: Kayleigh McEnany defends her 11 mail-in votes while calling it ‘fraud’ for the masses

Published

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Thursday faced questions from Fox News about why she had voted by mail 11 times even though President Donald Trump has called absentee ballots a "scam."

McEnany was asked about her voting history after the Tampa Bay Times reported that she had used mail-in voting nearly a dozen times in recent years.

"So why is it OK for you to do it?" Fox News host Ed Henry asked McEnany. "I understand you are traveling, you're in a different city. But how can you really be assured that your votes were counted accurately but when other people do it, it's fraud."

‘They want their civil war’: Far-right ‘boogaloo’ militants have embedded themselves in the George Floyd protests in Minneapolis

Published

on

Young, white men dressed in Hawaiian-style print shirts and body armor, and carrying high-powered rifles have been a notable feature at state capitols, lending an edgy and even sometimes insurrectionary tone to gatherings of conservatives angered by restrictions on businesses and church gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic.

Just as many states are reopening their economies — and taking the wind out of the conservative protests — the boogaloo movement found a new galvanizing cause: the protests in Minneapolis against the police killing of George Floyd.

A new iteration of the militia movement, boogaloo was born out of internet forums for gun enthusiasts that repurposed the 1984 movie Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo as a code for a second civil war, and then modified it into phrases like “big luau” to create an insular community for those in on the joke, with Hawaiian-style shirts functioning as an in-real-life identifier. Boogaloo gained currency as an internet meme over the summer of 2019, when it was adopted by white supremacists in the accelerationist tendency. In January, the movement made the leap from the internet to the streets when a group boogaloo-ers showed up at the Second Amendment rally in Richmond, Va.
