COFFEE SHOP WON’T SERVE COPS FOR ‘PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL SAFETY OF CUSTOMERS’

A coffee shop in Oakland is refusing to serve law enforcement officers for the “physical and emotional safety of our customers and ourselves,” according to the shop’s social media.

Hasta Muerte Coffee, an employee-owned co-op, will not serve officers in uniform and turned away an officer a few weeks ago, as reported by NBC Bay Area.

The sergeant who was turned away from the shop a few weeks ago said he was surprised by employees refusing to serve him, but walked out without any incident or any coffee.

Coffee shop workers did not respond to requests for comment on the policy, but a post on their Instagram account showed a photo with writing in Spanish that says, “Talk to your neighbors, not the police.”

The writing below the photo describes an exchange with a uniformed police officer on Feb. 16, and the post clearly states: “We have a policy of asking police to leave for the physical and emotional safety of our customers and ourselves.”

The post includes another picture of Facebook posts in which people object to the shop’s policy because they refused to serve a sergeant in uniform who is also the president of the Latino Police Officers Association of Alameda County. On top of the posts, the shop wrote the words, “Not my president.”

 

 

A LAUGHING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT WHO KILLED TWO COPS: ‘I wish I could have killed more of those motherf***ers,’

Posted on Updated on

 

 

( Daily Mail ) An illegal immigrant laughed as he admitted to killing two Sacramento-area police officers and pledged to do it again, in a series of chilling courtroom outbursts on Tuesday.

Luis Bracamontes, 37, is standing trial at Sacramento Superior Court for the 2014 murders of Sacramento Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Davis Jr.

‘I wish I could have killed more of those motherf***ers,’ Bracamontes said, before Judge Steve White, according to the Sacramento Bee.

 

‘I will break out soon, and I will kill more, kill whoever gets in front of me.’

Bracamontes, who has requested the death penalty at several hearings throughout the process leading up to his trial, didn’t stop there.

‘There’s no need for a f***ing trial,’ he said, grinning and laughing as prosecutor Rod Norgaard described the violent events that unfolded at Bracamontes’ hand on October 24, 2014.

This outburst led to the judge ordering the jury temporarily out of the room.

Throughout the opening statements the defendant grinned, smiled, laughed and refused to remain quiet.

Posted on

 

( Daily Caller ) The first Somali person to become a police officer in Maine was arrested Saturday night for disrupting a concert and heads to court Wednesday to face multiple charges for her behavior.

The 24-year-old police officer, Zahra Munye Abu, was arrested Saturday night at Palladium Nightclub in Worcester, Mass., for assault and battery and was charged with three other counts of misdemeanor, according to the Portland Press Herald. Abu was bailed out of jail at 1 a.m. Sunday, but the bail amount has not been disclosed.

“She was (given) several opportunities to leave and refused. Eventually she was placed under arrest,” Worcester police Sgt. Kerry F. Hazelhurst said.

Abu, who previously served the city of Portland as an officer, has been put on paid administrative leave until the court resolves her case, according to Portland Police Chief, Michael Sauschuck. “The Portland Police Department was notified late Saturday night of the arrest of Police Officer Zahra Abu in Worcester, Massachusetts,” Sauschuck said, the Portland Press Herald reports.

“This issue will be dealt with as a personnel matter from this point forward, so I will have no further comment,” he added.

Police Knew That Hawaii Missile Attack Report was False Within Five Minutes After Alert

Posted on

 

According to 911 recordings obtained by Mercury News, police dispatchers had realized that the missile warning was a false alarm only minutes after the warnings flashed across cell phones.

The warning hit cellphones at 8:07 AM on Saturday, January 13, but dispatchers were aware that the report was a false alarm by 8:12, the paper reported. Despite that, officials didn’t rescind the warning until 8:45.

“Somebody should get fired,” one police officer is heard saying dourly on the recordings.

Only minutes after the alert went out, one Island police officer was heard letting out a “wheww” in relief as he learned that the whole thing was untrue.

“They’re really scared,” the officer added of people he was meeting.

“They probably made an error in their testing,” the dispatcher responded on the recordings. “And we’ll just have to relay this to everybody.”

 

Several other dispatchers and officers reiterated that the report was a false one, but one supervisor advised to continue evacuations until official channels reported back that the alert was an accidental release.

LONDON: POLICE WON’T INVESTIGATE MINOR CRIMES UNLESS IT’S ‘HATE CRIME’, CRIMES SURGE UNDER MUSLIM MAYOR SADIQ KHAN

  • London’s Met Police Won’t Investigate Minor Crime, Only ‘Hate Crime’
  • London mayor Sadiq Khan presided over huge rises in knife crime, gun crime, theft, burglary, rape, homicide, and more. 

 

London’s Metropolitan Police force will not bother to investigate crimes if officers are required to watch CCTV for more than 20 minutes or there is no footage available.

The UK’s largest force will also drop investigations into thousands of lower-level offences and ignore certain crimes such as vandalism, vehicle crime, and fuel theft if damages do not exceed £50.

The new “crime assessment policy” was uncovered after a Freedom of Information request by The Times, and comes a time of increasing budgetary pressures and falling police numbers.

New Year’s Eve celebrations in France led to national outcry after footage of a female police officer being savagely attacked surfaced, among reports that over 1,000 cars were burned overnight and 510 arrests took place.

The female police officer was attacked alongside her male inspector in the Paris suburb of Champigny-sur-Marne by a large mob in the early hours of Monday morning, with both individuals being hospitalised.

In the footage widely shared to social media, a large group of African appearance males stand around cheering as a female police officer is kicked to the ground, taking several blows to the head. In other parts of social media footage shared by Front National member of parliament Gilbert Collard, men cheer as cars are rolled over.

 

France’s RTL reports the officers had become isolated from their colleagues while trying to calm a disturbance related to a New Year’s party in the Parisian suburb. While reinforcements were quickly deployed, with officers using “grenades and gunfire” to disperse the crowd, it was too late for the attacked officers to escape injury. Several government vehicles including two fire engines were also damaged during the unrest.

CUS ME? Baltimore Residents Blame Record-High Murder Rate On Lower Police Presence

Posted on

( NPR ) For the third year in a row, Baltimore, Md., has had more than 300 murders, reaching a new record of murders per number of residents in 2017.

Some residents attribute the high murder rate to relaxed police patrols in the city following high-profile cases of police brutality. Officers have backed off in neighborhoods, like the one where Freddie Gray was arrested.

The Rev. Kinji Scott, a pastor in Baltimore who’s held positions in local city government, says the opposite needs to happen.

“We wanted the police there,” Scott says. “We wanted them engaged in the community. We didn’t want them beating the hell out of us, we didn’t want that.”

He’s among activists who are calling for police reform to reduce the violence in Baltimore and several other high-crime cities across the U.S. that he says haven’t seen change. That change begins with a conversation between the communities directly involved, Scott says.

“We need the front line police officers and we need the heart of the black community to step to the forefront of this discussion,” he says. “And that’s when we’re going to see a decrease in crime.”
