Video of Woman’s Arrest By Atlanta Police Sparks Uproar On Social Media, Department Defends Officer

Atlanta, Georgia — Below is a summary of the incident provided by the Atlanta police department:

  1. As part of the Atlanta Police Department’s efforts to address park safety and in response to safety concerns after the August 2, 2022, homicide in Wilson Mill Park and August 7, 2022, homicide at Rosa L. Burney Park, Atlanta Police Officers have been instructed to increase patrols inside city parks.
  1. The officer in this incident conducted patrol inside Shady Valley Park at 2700 Shady Valley Drive in Northeast, Atlanta on August 8, 2022, at around 11:50 PM. The park closed at 11:00 PM.  During his patrol, the officer encountered two people inside the park and attempted to issue both a citation for the violation.
  1. For most traffic law violations and city ordinance violations, officers are authorized to issue a copy of charges and release the individual once they have signed the ticket. Signing the ticket is not an admission of guilt but is an acknowledgment of receipt of the citation and of the person’s obligation to appear in court or pay a fine. Refusing to sign a citation is considered reasonable cause to believe the individual will not appear in court or pay the fine and the officer may then physically arrest the individual so they can be brought before the court to post bond.
  1. While issuing the citations, the officer explained to the male that he would be taken to jail if he refused to sign the citation and the male chose to sign the citation. The female was given the same information and refused to sign the citation, citing the fact she wanted the officer’s badge number. It is important to note the officer had provided his name and badge number to the female twice, the second time being only moments before she asked again for his badge number.
  1. The officer explained what would happen if either party refused to sign the ticket and moved to place the female in handcuffs after she refused. The officer then attempted to place the female’s hands behind her back and she began actively resisting his efforts. This resulted in a physical altercation as the officer attempted to place her into custody.
  1. No one wants to see a fight between an officer and a citizen, but a more in-depth review of the incident, using the body worn camera footage, shows the officer repeatedly ask the female to comply by placing her hands behind her back and the footage shows she refuses each time. The officer requested assistance and another officer arrived on the scene and the female was then placed into handcuffs.

To address several issues the female brought up:

    1. An officer is not required to read someone their Miranda rights prior to arresting them.
    2. The officer was wearing a mask and rubber gloves in an effort to keep himself safe from communicable viruses or diseases and was authorized to do so.
    3. If an officer explains you will be taken to jail for something and you choose to push the officer to that limit, you will end up in jail.

In the end, this incident began as an effort to address issues in our city parks. The officer clearly intended to issue a citation to each party and allow them to leave the park. Several unnecessary decisions, that were entirely out of our control, resulted in a physical altercation with an officer and the physical arrest of this individual.

WATCH: Beirut Grain Silo Falls In Partial Collapse Nearly 2 Years After Port Explosion, Fears Whole Structure Could Fall

A section of the huge grain silos at Beirut’s port, shredded in the 2020 explosion in the Lebanese capital, collapsed on Sunday after a weeks-long fire triggered by grains that had fermented and ignited in the summer heat. It was not immediately clear if anyone was injured.

The 50-year-old silos, which once had a capacity of more than 100,000 tons and stand 48 meters (158ft) high, withstood the force of the explosion two years ago, shielding the western part of Beirut from the blast that killed more than 200 people, wounded more than 7,000 and badly damaged entire neighborhoods.

SHOCK VIDEO: Machete-Wielding Florida Man Shoots Man In The Face at Point-Blank Range

BROWARD COUNTY, Fla (BCSO) – Broward Sheriff’s Office Violent Crimes Unit detectives arrested Luis Alberto Escolástico Canela for shooting another man in the face last month in Oakland Park.

At approximately 1:49 a.m., Monday, June 6, BSO district deputies and Oakland Park Fire Rescue responded to a report of a shooting near the 3800 block of North Andrews Avenue in Oakland Park. Paramedics located an adult male suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment and survived his injury.

BSO detectives located surveillance video that captured the crime. On camera two men are seen exchanging words outside of a store. Suddenly, the subject is seen taking a machete from his pants wielding it at the victim. The conversation continues as the subject approaches the victim. The subject then walks away.

Moments later, the subject returns, points a gun at the victim, walks straight towards him and gets close enough to shoot him in the face. The subject is seen fleeing in a four-door dark, colored Infiniti.

The video was shared with media and the public, and through investigative methods, the suspect was identified as Luis Alberto Escolástico Canela. An arrest warrant was issued.

On Thursday, July 28, Canela was arrested in North Lauderdale. He faces one charge of attempted murder in the first degree. BSO’s Violence Intervention Proactive Enforcement Response (V.I.P.E.R.) team investigators assisted in the apprehension.

“You Can’t Hit Me!” – “Yes, I Can MF’er!” Beating of Armed Teen by Illinois Police Is Captured on Video

Oak Lawn, Illinois — On July 27th, 2022 an Oak Lawn Police Officer conducted a traffic stop in the area of Southwest Highway and Austin Ave. As police searched the driver, police said 17-year-old Hadi Abuadaleh got out of the back seat and ran. Dashcam video from other officers shows them chasing the teenager around the 95th Street area. Another dashcam video then begins as Abouadale is already lying near 95th Street and McVicker. Two officers are seen pinning him to the ground, with one officer punching him in the legs and the other punching him several times in the head.

While difficult to see in the video, police said the teen had a bag around his body that he refused to release. Officers then Tazed the teen and handcuff him. At one point, the audio cuts off on the video, but police can be heard yelling “pressure point” as they attempted to get him to release the bag. Oak Garden police stated a .25 caliber gun was discovered inside his bag loaded with three rounds of ammunition. Police said Abuadal has been charged, but because he is a minor and in hospital, investigators have not yet been able to interview him.

Kentucky Governor Declares State of Emergency

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear declared a State of Emergency today due to severe flooding in Eastern Kentucky.

“This was a tough night and maybe an even tougher morning for so many of our residents,” Gov. Beshear said. “We are currently experiencing one of the worst, most devastating flooding events in Kentucky’s history. The situation is dynamic and ongoing. In most places we are not seeing receding water – in fact, in most places it has not crested yet. What we are going to see coming out of this is massive property damage and we expect loss of life. Hundreds will lose their homes. And this will be yet another event that will take not months, but years, for our families to rebuild and recover from.”

He added, “I also want to tell the people of Eastern Kentucky that we are going to be there for them. You are important and we want to help. This is what we do as Kentuckians – we help each other out.”

At the Governor’s 9:30 a.m. EDT media briefing the following items were discussed:

  • The Governor was at the State Emergency Operations Center about 7 a.m., speaking directly to local officials, emergency management directors, the Kentucky National Guard, cabinet leadership and the CEO of the American Red Cross.
  • At least six counties have declared local states of emergency: Breathitt, Clay, Floyd, Letcher, Owsley and Pike.
  • Gov. Beshear mobilized the Kentucky National Guard, which has 15-20 high-axle vehicles that can pass through the flooded roads to assist with delivering supplies and rescuing Kentuckians. They are also staging three helicopters.
  • Some people are currently stranded on their roofs; state and local agencies are working to identify and rescue these Kentuckians.
  • There are a number of people unaccounted for.
  • The Kentucky State Police, as well as emergency management professionals, are fully active and responding. The Governor mentioned they have an extra helicopter on hand that can be used as needed.
  • The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is responding and preparing for debris removal, as is the Division of Forestry.
  • The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources is assisting with water rescues.
  • Later today, the Governor will be posting a list of shelters that are being established. The shelters will include Pine Mountain State Resort Park, Jenny Wiley State Resort Park and Buckhorn Lake State Resort Park, which are also experiencing some challenges including loss of power.
  • More than 23,000 households are currently without power, and the state is working with multiple cell service providers to restore service.
  • The Governor said many communities in the impacted areas are also going to lose water temporarily. Water systems have already been disrupted in Martin and Pike counties.
  • Truckloads of water were ordered and are headed to Eastern Kentucky.
  • Specific situations include a school where several faculty members are currently stranded – no students or children are involved. And the state is checking on nursing homes and our seniors that may be vulnerable and is making plans to move them if necessary.
  • Gov. Beshear said that he is expecting a break in weather conditions for a couple of hours followed by another round of rain mid-afternoon. He is hoping it won’t be more than an inch. After that, officials are hoping there is a more significant break to allow water to recede.

“I’m asking everyone to pray. There are a lot of people out there who need help and are very scared right now. And we’re doing the very best we can to reach each and every one of them,” Gov. Beshear said.

Video Released Showing Former Kansas City Police Detective Shot Dead After Disarming Officer

Kansas City, Kansas — On November 22, 2021 at 2:30 p.m. The Kansas City, Kansas Police Department received 911 calls about a man standing in the middle of the road pointing at the sky and trying to jump in front of traffic. As soon as officers arrived 36-year-old Lionel Womack started running at them. Womack attempted to get into the passenger side of the police car then ran around the vehicle where he came into contact with an officer. Womack reached toward the back of his pants and the officer, assuming he had a gun drew his weapon.

Womack then got into the driver’s seat of the patrol car, and the same officer tried to get him out. A fight ensued over the officer’s weapon, which discharged two shots. Womack successfully disarmed the officer and pointed the weapon at that officer before then pointing it at the other officer, who shot Womack. Womack was taken by ambulance to a hospital and pronounced dead two hours later. The two officers received non life-threatening injuries. Womack came from a law enforcement family. His wife and mother are police officers in Kansas City, Kansas, and his stepfather is a retired police sergeant. Two aunts are city police dispatchers.

Womack was hired by the Kansas City, Kansas police department in 2007, promoted to detective in 2018, and terminated in August 2020 after numerous policy violations and conduct issues. Womack filed a federal lawsuit in December 2020, alleging excessive force by Kiowa County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeremy Rodriguez. Womack said Rodriguez intentionally drove over him in an August 2020 incident that was captured on dashcam video. The deputy has denied the allegations and said qualified immunity applies in the case.
