David GrossoWASHINGTON DC - D.C. Councilman David Grosso made a splash at a police oversight hearing by suggesting disarming officers in the District.

“My staff won’t let me tell you that I think we oughta get rid of guns in the city and that police shouldn’t have guns so I’m not gonna tell you that,” Grosso said.

Police officers in D.C. came under fire from frustrated citizens and organizations who say the department continues to use racial profile and unnecessary force at an oversight hearing held on the campus of Howard University.

“Some of the officers treat the citizens who are black in this community like animals on a daily basis,” said Patrice Sulton, of the D.C. branch of the NAACP.  More

moSt. Louis – Protesters gathered in a St. Louis neighborhood late Wednesday after an off-duty police officer fatally shot an 18-year-old black man whom police say opened fire on the officer during a foot pursuit.

St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson, said the officer, a 6-year veteran of the force, was working for a private security company when he approached three men on the street.

“As he exited the car, the men took off running. He was able to follow one of them before he lost him and then found him again as the guy jumped out of some bushes across the street,” Lt. Col. Alfred Adkins said. “The officer approached, they got into a struggle, they ended up into a gangway, at which time the young man pulled a weapon and shots were fired. The officer returned fire and unfortunately the young man was killed.” More

police dogsLARKSPUR, Colorado  Douglas County deputies are warning the public to stay away from three police and military trained dogs. The German shepherds disappeared from a private kennel in Larkspur after someone released them.

They worry that if approached the wrong way by someone the dogs could react aggressively, making finding them a priority for their office.

The sheriff’s office says together the three dogs are worth close to $100,000, and the idea that someone went there knowing that is something they’re investigating.

“This is off the road aways, so you would have to know that it was there, and let the dogs out of the kennels, so someone specifically intended to let those dogs go free,” Spurlock said.  More

george-dawNutty News West Babylon, New York – A Long Island school bus driver was called into his boss’ office expecting commendation. Instead, he said he was fired for helping three police officers stranded in a violent storm – and transporting them in his school bus. Daw snapped pictures as a near-monsoon moved through New Hyde Park. Traffic was stopped, cars were submerged and drivers panicked. George Daw finally freed his yellow SUV school bus – with his one single child passenger aboard – amid sudden cries for help from three Nassau County police detectives. “Do I leave these three police officers, due to company policy?” Daw said. “I didn’t even second guess it. I told the child to jump in the back, these people are coming on board. I had to get them.” Daw rescued and transported the police officers – their unmarked patrol car was a total loss.  More
