As bad as things can get for some people in America, people in other countries have it worse.  Trigger warning for this video.  911 call in Romania from a kidnapped girl.  Listen at your own discretion.

This is what gives the police in general a bad name to me.  It isn't the actions of the idiot, although that is bad enough.  It is the actions by his superiors to keep him on the job.




As cars and trucks whizzed by, a bored Claiborne County sheriff's deputy spun the cylinder of his revolver and fired through the windshield into rush-hour traffic on a busy Interstate 75.


He still wears a badge today.


Noah Arnwine, whose stepmother works as the sheriff's secretary, was riding back from an inmate transport in the passenger seat of a county cruiser Nov. 2 near the Philadelphia, Tennessee, exit on I-75 North when he pulled out a .38-caliber Ruger, emptied all but one chamber, pointed the gun at the windshield and pulled the trigger "as if he was playing Russian roulette," according to his partner.


"It was just so crazy, I'm still in awe over it," Deputy Cody Lankford, who was driving at the time, says on a recording obtained by Knox News. "I slowed down and started watching to see if anybody started flipping end-over-end because they got the back of their head blown off. ... I hate that he's probably going to lose his job, but he needs a job where he doesn't get to handle a gun every day."

On December 7 of last year, Julius Ervin Tate Jr. attempted to rob an undercover police officer who had responded to a social media ad posted by Tate in which he purported to be selling a cell phone. After a SWAT agent shot and killed him, police charged his 16-year-old girlfriend, Masonique Saunders, with felony murder.




Under Ohio's felony murder rule, the state can charge individuals with murder if he or she participated in a tangential crime that led to the death in question. Saunders allegedly helped plan the botched robbery, giving authorities a way to prosecute her for his death.


The teen eventually took a plea deal and was sentenced last week to three years in juvenile prison for involuntary manslaughter as well as aggravated robbery. But although Saunders evaded a life sentence for murder, some people say the deal was still unjust, as she played no part in her then-boyfriend's actual demise.


They would be correct. Felony murder rules exist in several states across the country, locking up people who did not participate in the murder—or sometimes even the original crime.

Twelve-year-old Amir Worship was sitting on the edge of his brother's bed with his hands in the air when an Illinois SWAT team officer shot him and shattered his kneecap, according to a lawsuit filed in Illinois state court Thursday.


The suit, filed by Amir's mother, Crystal Worship, alleges that SWAT team officers from the Country Club Hills and Richton Park police departments burst into their house on the night of May 26, throwing flashbangs and detaining the family, including Amir and his 13-year-old brother, at gunpoint. The officers were executing a narcotics search warrant for Worship's boyfriend, Mitchell Thurman, who was subsequently arrested for illegal gun and drug possession.


According to the lawsuit, a SWAT team officer shot Worship in his bedroom after the room had been secured and "and long after it was obvious that a 12-year-old child posed no threat." 


"In fact, 12-year-old Amir was shot, shot while sitting on the edge of the bed with his hands up," the lawsuit says. "An officer shot him with his assault rifle, striking him in the knee and shattering his knee cap. At that moment, this officer was pointing his rifle directly at shirtless Amir as he sat on the edge of his brother's bed."

A Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy falsely claimed last week he was shot by a sniper at the Lancaster sheriff’s station. He’ll now be the subject of a criminal investigation, officials said late Saturday.


“We are all appalled and disappointed. We took the deputy at his word at first,” Sheriff Alex Villanueva said in an interview Sunday. “We intend to hold the individual responsible for breaking the law and most importantly for betraying the community.”


“We know the what and how,” the sheriff added. “We don’t know the why.”


The dramatic twist in the case came after days of fruitless searches for a gunman who authorities believed had shot the deputy. The incident prompted the manhunt and massive police response, with much of the focus on an apartment building next to the station.
