Campos, 25, returned to work Monday, a knowledgeable source said.

The Review-Journal reported last week that Campos had been staying at an MGM Resorts International property at the company’s expense since the Oct. 1 massacre, which left 59 people dead, including the shooter.

Officer accidentally fired weapon in Las Vegas gunman’s Mandalay Bay suite

( RJ ) A Metropolitan Police Department officer accidentally discharged his weapon inside the Mandalay Bay gunman’s suite the night of the Oct. 1 shooting, the Clark County sheriff confirmed Monday.

The police firearm went off inside the suite sometime after officers made entry, Sheriff Joe Lombardo said. But the round or rounds were not fired in the same room where gunman Stephen Paddock was found dead with what has been described as a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

“It happened, and we’re investigating it, just like we do with any officer-involved use of force,” Lombardo told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “Nobody was struck.”

It’s unclear what caused the officer, who has not been named, to discharge his weapon

WHAT? POLICE: NO MORE PRESS CONFERENCES ON LAS VEGAS MASSACRE

Posted on Updated on

 

What? No more any future press conferences?

Fox News reports:

“He is a victim in this and we don’t discuss victims,” Las Vegas Police Officer and Spokesman Larry Hadfield told Fox News on Tuesday.

Hadfield said the department is not planning on holding any future press conferences, absent the development of new details.

MGM Resorts International, the hotel’s parent company, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal: “Jesus Campos wants to tell his story at a time and place of his choosing. He’s asked that everyone respect his request for privacy. We could not be more proud of Jesus.” The newspaper suggested that based on that statement, MGM seems to know Campos’ whereabouts.

 

WHATABURGER WORKER REFUSED TO SERVE DENISON COPS BECAUSE THEY ARE ‘RACISTS’, GOT FIRED…LOONY LIB!

Posted on

  • The employee alleged “cops beat up my boyfriend and are racists”
  • Police chief Jay Burch: “It was a ‘routine’ arrest,” Burch said. “There was no physical altercation and no one injured. So the employee was simply lying about her boyfriend getting ‘beat up’ by police.”

Whataburger worker fired for refusing to serve police officers

 

Fox New – A worker at a Texas fast-food restaurant was fired after she refused to serve two police officers, the company said Saturday.

In a lengthy post on the Denison Police Department’s Facebook page, Chief Jay Burch alleged the officers were cursed at by the employee and that the restaurant manager’s only response was “I don’t get into politics.”

“If a business does not want police officers as customers, just let us know,” Burch wrote. “There’s no need to curse us and make a scene, just let us know you don’t want us there and we’ll go somewhere else.”

In a statement, a Whataburger spokesperson said “an individual employee acted out of line with Whataburger’s values to treat all customers with respect. We took swift action and this person is no longer employed by us.”

Denison Sgt. Holly Jenkins said on Facebook that the employee was unapologetic, expressed her hatred toward police and said she would continue to refuse service to police officers.

The chief said a supervisor went to the restaurant afterward and spoke to the employee.

The employee alleged “cops beat up my boyfriend and are racists,” Burch said. He added that the woman told the supervisor her boyfriend was “beat up” when Denison officers arrested him a few weeks ago.

Burch said the supervisor went to the station and found the documentation of the arrest and then reviewed the video of the arrest from the arresting officer’s dash cam.

“It was a ‘routine’ arrest,” Burch said. “There was no physical altercation and no one injured. So the employee was simply lying about her boyfriend getting ‘beat up’ by police.”

DENISON TEXAS CHIEF POLICE TO BUSINESS OWNERS: ‘If you don’t want cops as customers, just let us know’

Posted on Updated on

 Denison Police Department Chief Jay Burch response:

“If a business does not want police officers as customers, just let us know,” Burch wrote. “There’s no need to curse us and make a scene, just let us know you don’t want us there and we’ll go somewhere else.”

“Many of the officers also fear food-tampering with an attitude like this from such an employee.”

 

If a business does not want police officers as customers, just let us know. There’s no need to curse us and make a scene, just let us know you don’t want us there and we’ll go somewhere else.

Now going somewhere else in Denison in the middle of the night is not easy because our officers don’t have many options. What really gets my goat with such an incident is that while most of us are sleeping – sleeping! — the officers are out there working hard to keep us safe and when trying to take a break to eat – they face this type of reception from an employee of a local business and management calls it “politics”? The employee also said she would continue to refuse to serve officers.

Now we know. And rest assured officers will no longer patronize this business. Many of the officers also fear food-tampering with an attitude like this from such an employee.

As we most always try to do when there is a conflict, a police supervisor went to the restaurant and asked to speak to the employee in an effort to understand why she felt the way she did toward police.

The employee alleged “cops beat up my boyfriend and are racists.”

When questioned further, the employee said her boyfriend was “beat up” when arrested by DPD a few weeks ago.

The police supervisor went to the station and found the documentation of the arrest, then reviewed the video or audio of the arrest from the arresting officer’s dash cam.

It was a “routine” arrest. There was no physical altercation and no one [was] injured.

So the employee was simply lying about her boyfriend getting “beat up” by police.

I’ve seen similar service refusal stories like this around the state and country but never thought we’d see it locally.

WOW! MGM DISPUTES NEW POLICE TIMELINE OF LAS VEGAS MASSACRE: ‘TIMELINE NOT ACCURATE’

Posted on Updated on

  • MGM: ‘We believe what is currently being expressed may not be accurate.”

 

( HuffPost ) MGM Resorts International, the company that owns the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, believes that police officials are releasing inaccurate information about the Las Vegas shooting massacre at the hotel on Oct. 1.

“This remains an ongoing investigation with a lot of moving parts,” MGM spokeswoman Debra DeShong said in the statement sent to HuffPost late Tuesday.

“As evidenced by law enforcement briefings over the past week, many facts are still unverified and continue to change as events are under review. We cannot be certain about the most recent timeline that has been communicated [publicly], and we believe what is currently being expressed may not be accurate.

The company’s statement is in apparent response to police officials’ earlier announcement that the timeline of events for the mass shooting has changed due to new information.

During a Monday news conference, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said that Stephen Paddock first shot at a hotel security guard six minutes before opening fire from his 32nd-floor room on an outdoor country music festival below, killing at least 58 people and injuring hundreds of others. Lombardo also said that Paddock had checked into the Mandalay Bay on Sept. 25, three days earlier than they first reported.

This new timeline replaces officials’ previous belief that the shooting was underway when security guard Jesus Campos approached Paddock’s door to his corner suite, causing Paddock to cease fire on the festival and shoot at Campos before turning the gun on himself.

An investigator told the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday that police now believe Campos, who was wounded by Paddock, first alerted hotel security officials of a gunman on the 32nd floor before the massacre began.

Clark County Assistant Sheriff Tom Roberts told the Times that Campos, who possibly used a hallway phone, “called it in before” Paddock turned his guns onto the music festival.

“He manually called down and he used his radio to call,” Roberts told the newspaper, later adding, “We just don’t know how long it took him to call. He’s getting shot at, he’s running, he’s getting shot, he finds some cover, that’s when he starts calling in.”

RACIST WATERMELON! DETROIT FIREFIGHTER FIRED ON FIRST DAY OF JOB FOR BRINGING A WATERMELON

Posted on Updated on

Detroit firefighter Robert Pattison was fired before he officially began his first day on the job for bringing a ‘racially insensitive’ watermelon.

WJBK reported:

 

– Earlier this month, 41-year-old Robert Pattison went to introduce himself to his fellow firefighters at Engine 55 at Joy and Southfield in Detroit. Second Battallion Chief Shawn McCarty calls it a tradition for firefighters.

“It’s not mandatory, it’s voluntary,” he says. “You come in bearing gifts. The usual gift is doughnuts, but you are allowed to bring whatever you want to bring in.”

And Pattison, a probationary firefighter, decided to bring a watermelon wrapped in a pink ribbon. We’re told some African-American firefighters were instantly offended, since 90 percent of the people who work at Engine 55 are black.

FOX 2: “Is it racially insensitive to bring a watermelon into a fire house?”

“To some people,” McCarty says.

FOX 2 spoke to Pattison by phone, who claims it was not a joke – and he did not mean to offend his fellow firefighters. But he clearly did. Fire Commissioner Eric Jones says the Fenton native was officially discharged.

In a statement Jones says: “There is zero tolerance for discriminatory behavior inside the Detroit Fire Department. On Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017, at Engine 55, a trial firefighter (probationary employee) engaged in unsatisfactory work behavior which was deemed offensive and racially insensitive to members of the Detroit Fire Department.

“After a thorough investigation, it was determined that the best course of action was to terminate the employment of this probationary employee.”

VIDEO: Outrage After Robbery Suspect Alfred Burns Gets Hit By Police

( bluelivesmatter.blue ) New York City – Video shows NYPD officers in a fight with a suspect, and people are outraged over the “brutality” as a cop hits the suspect while he’s on top of another cop (video below.)

The incident happened on Friday at around 9 AM when Alfred Burns tried to steal a bicycle from the front of a store at 225th Street and Broadway, according to NY Post.

The officers approached Burns, 16, and he attacked them. During the fight, the suspect pushed one of the officers to the ground, got on top of him, and put his hand on the officer’s neck.

Then an officer with arms the size of tree trunks got on top of Burns and started hitting him while a third officer yelled for him to stop resisting.

Burns continued to resist throughout the ordeal, and it took all of the officers to pry Burns loose from the down officer.

“No, what are you doing? What did you do?” a bystander screamed at the officers.

During the fight, bystanders even tried to interfere, grabbing and pushing the officers.

Burns was arrested and charged with assault, petit larceny, resisting arrest, criminal possession of stolen property, and giving a fake name. He was transported to the hospital and released.
