Police officer saves baby of BLM protestor

Some anti-police protestors are pushing the message that all cops are bad. They aren’t. A young woman was attending a Black Lives Matter protest at a park in Palmdale, California, when her 11-month-old child lost consciousness. Panicked she and a friend ran over to a nearby Deputy, Cameron Kinsey, asking for help. Faith Wire explains what happened next: According to NBC4, the women ran to the deputy who was in a parking lot nearby. Deputy Cameron Kinsey then began attempting to dislodge whatever was in the baby’s mouth, before finally issuing several blows to the baby’s back, which ultimately succeeded and saved the baby’s life. Turns out the child had swallowed a coin, which became stuck in its airway. Kinsey was asked about the protest and according to TheBlaze, his response was succinct: “None of that other stuff matters, just the baby.” You can watch a video of what happened caught by a nearby security camera: READ: Deputy Saves BLM Protester’s Dying Child in dramatic video

No irony here?

One more from the “do as I say, not as I do elitist crowd.” Apparently, Democrat Los Angeles City Council President Nury Martinez has been pushing to defund the Los Angeles police force. In fact, Martinez was the person who introduced the motion to reduce police spending in LA by $150 million. Meanwhile: The Daily Wire writes: “The private security detail infuriated some members of the force when Martinez became one of the council members to spearhead a motion to cut $150 million in funding to the LAPD’s budget,” Brunell reported Monday. “Multiple LAPD sources confirmed the units were directed to provide 24/7 security beginning April 4 at Martinez’s home, almost always staffed by two officers. As of May 6, we’re told the detail decreased to 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. with roving patrol checks overnight.” One police officer noted: “It’s kind of ironic. Here she is demanding $150 million be reallocated from the police budget, but yet she has security at her house by the Los Angeles Police Department.” READ: Top L.A. Democrat Pushed …

Minneapolis city council to dismantle police force?

According to an article on Fox News, the movement to defund (reduce spending) on police is gaining momentum with celebrities predictably jumping on side. Los Angeles and New York mayors have already announced that funding for police will be cut in those cities. But there is even a push to see the police completely dismantled, as might happen in Minneapolis, where the city council says it has a super majority support to do that. This means that the Mayor, who wants to keep the police, couldn’t veto the proposal. CNN recently interviewed Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender and asked her the obvious question on what would happen once the police was dismantled in that city: CAMEROTA: “What if in the middle of the night my home is broken into. Who do I call?” BENDER: “Yes, I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know — and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege.” pic.twitter.com/WhubQ9yJIf — Eddie Zipperer (@EddieZipperer) June 8, 2020 Bender …

Defunding the police?

There is a movement afoot in the US to defund or dismantle the police. I don’t know what plan they have to replace it with, if there is one, but most of this philosophy is rooted in the silly notion that everyone is basically good.

New Jersey police shock gym patrons

People are tiring of the lockdowns ordered by state governments and some are practising what you might describe as civil disobedience. And it seems even some police are fed up with being the hatchet men used by governors and mayors to enforce what many believe are unconstitutional lockdowns. When Jersey’s Atilis Gym decided to open on Monday, in defiance of Gov. Phil Murphy’s order, the police were apparently sent in to shut it down. Note: those using the gym were required to social distance. A large crowd had gathered by this time and many were thinking they would be ticketed or even arrested. According to Fox29, the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office warned that people who patronize a business not allowed reopening could face a fine of $1,000 or six months in jail. But then things took a dramatic change when one of the officers told the crowd: “Formally, you are all in violation of the executive order. On that note, have a good day. Everybody be safe.” The police then left with cheers from the …

Jameel McGee with the former "dirty cop" Andrew Collins

Former ‘dirty’ cop and the innocent man he framed now preaching redemption and forgiveness

In 2005, Jameel McGee, 35, was arrested and charged with dealing crack cocaine and eventually served four years for the offense. The only problem was McGee who lives in Benton Harbor, Michigan, did not have any drugs on him, but the arresting officer Andrews Collins, 33, falsified the police report accusing McGee. Collins knew the drugs belonged to another person in the car that McGee had been riding in. But no one else knew and the courts sentenced McGee to ten years in prison for a trafficking crime he didn’t commit. Though McGee’s insistence he was innocent is a common enough claim for those arrested for drugs, in this case he was eventually proven right. In an AP story, Collins admitted he was a dirty cop. It began when he worked narcotics with the police department. It started small but escalated to the point he was stealing drugs and even money and planting drugs on people and falsifying reports to get a quick arrest. Meanwhile as he sat in prison, God began working on McGee …

Ex-con shocks everyone by praying for police officer who arrested him

When you look at police reports of Edward “Doc” Amey, you will find several pages listing his crimes from everything from felony convictions to misdemeanors, including several drug related charges. He has been in prison three times. In an interview with KHOU TV, Amey said: “I haven’t always been a friend of police. Know what I am saying.” But a recent photo of Amey in action has been circulating on Facebook, it is an image of him praying with a police officer. Not just any policeman but Officer Salvador Chapa from the Texas City, Texas police department. Chapa had actually arrested Amey years back on gun charges and he actually did time for that crime But something happened to Amey several years back — he found God and the encounter transformed his life. With all the news in recent months of unprovoked attacks on police throughout the US, God began speaking to Amey about praying for police. Amey said: “The last week-and-a-half God has really been giving me the urge to pray for police officers.” …
