At least 24 Memphis Police Department officers were injured during a large protest Wednesday night, Mayor Jim Strickland says. The violence erupted after officers of the U.S. Marshals Service shot and killed Brandon Webber, 20. The shooting occurred around 7 p.m. local time, as officers from the U.S. Marshals Service as part of the Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force tried to take a man into custody. When the officers approached the man, law enforcement officials said, he was getting into his car in the Frayser community in northern Memphis, Tenn. That man was Webber, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, which is investigating the case.

A new euphemism for "youths" popped up in this article. "Residents". At some point they will run out of words to describe this criminal subculture that uses any excuse, valid or not to riot or cause trouble. The "Residents" could care less about the individual person involved; all they desire is a reason to loot and rebel against society.

Oh this one is gonna be tough for the grievence crowd. US Marshalls, not easy to extort local police force, did the shooting. I don't think Trump's Just-Us department is gonna play the racism card on the US Marshalls' service. Looks like no money to be made on these riots.

Well Tami, if you don't want to morn over your youth maybe you should teach them to be law-abiding citizens. When this young guy, already wanted on warrants for who knows what, rams police cars and brandishes a gun towards officers, what do you think will happen. You can keep your victim mentality or you can do something that will really improve things.

You just can’t use your motor vehicle to deliberately crash into US Marshal Task Force vehicles when they are there to serve felony warrants on you, and then jump out of your vehicle and aim a weapon at the US Marshals. By doing that you are asking for an immediate death sentence or are intent on committing suicide by cop, take your pick!

Any excuse will do to riot and loot. The "victim" was 20 years old with multiple warrants for his arrest, and when confronted, rammed police cars and brandished a gun at the U.S. Marshals. Sounds like he didn't want to be taken alive and got his wish. I wonder how many true victims this maggot left in his wake.

It must be rough to grow to physical adulthood without any of the time tested disciplines that used to equate to survival ever applied to your life or taught to you. Then suddenly some day an authority figure enters your day and uses completely unfamiliar language yet you are expected to understand and comply. Complicated words like "no" and "put the gun down," turn around," interlace your hands." Why nobody ever gave me a directive before I'm so confused. How sad, my GGGrandfather is a permanent subterranean resident of Memphis having perished so these residents can live free. Not so sure what the boys of 61 through 65 would have done had they known free would devolve into feral.

The Daily Mail reports that he was an honors student (high school), enrolled in college and father of two (at 20) by two "baby mammas." Never mind that he had multiple felony warrants, rammed several police cars and pulled a gun before he was shot.

Over the last several years, Memphis whites have bent over backwards to atone for who knows what exactly, beyond being white. It's been a pathetic, obsequious display. It's exactly the attitude many blacks will exploit to the max and exploit they have. Today's news is part of an ongoing pattern.

The reason so many police officers were hurt, was due to the hands off approach mandated by so many cities. The reasoning being that, it's the cops causing all the problems. Cops have to dodge bricks and rocks thrown at them, but aren't allowed to touch the innocent souls who threw them. It would be racist you know.

From another story about the riot: Shelby County Commissioner and mayoral candidate Tami Sawyer tweeted that he had been shot several times in his family's front yard "Every life lost should matter...every single one. How many times will this be ok? It cannot continue to be," she wrote. O M G. The suspect who was shot pulled a gun on U S marshals and then got in his car and rammed his car into their vehicles several times and then was shot when he jumped out again with the gun. It is TOTALLY irresponsible for politicians to act like this behavior is OK.

I guess we have to explain to NPR that when you attack and injure police officers by throwing rocks and bricks, it's not a "protest," it's a violent riot. It doesn't sound like the residents in the streets, looking for answers, were doing much listening.

Sorry for the double post, but the reason that the guy was being arrested in the first place is because he allegedly went to look at a car under the guise of buying it and executed the seller and stole the car. The crime occurred in Mississippi, hence the federal marshals.

What happened after the perpetrator was killed is a prime result of racially based US politics these days. The fact that the perpetrator was an “Honor Student” who graduated from high school and was enrolled in college is completely irrelevant to his criminal actions during his encounter with US Marshals, or the appropriate law enforcement response to his actions which caused him to loose his life. The Daily Mail, a foreign newspaper, always tries to create a historic racial angle to any incident involving Black people being legitimately confronted by the police in the USA, clearly attempting to drum up controversy and racial animas that will lead them to another follow up story and even get innocent people hurt or killed.

With less than 10 days until the first Democrat debate, the most relevant question each and every candidate should be asked is, “Where’s the apocalypse?” Where is the doom and gloom we were assured would follow Donald Trump’s ascendency to the presidency? Where is the economic meltdown? Where is the tyrannical usurpation of power? Where? During the only presidential debate of 1980, Ronald Reagan cemented his legacy as “The Great Communicator” by asking one simple question, “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” Reagan’s question to the nation not only framed the election of 1980 in the most succinct and relatable terms,

The city of Waskom, Texas, has become the first in the nation to ban abortion, declaring itself a “sanctuary city for the unborn.” The Waskom city council unanimously voted Tuesday to adopt a resolution and an ordinance to make abortions in the city a criminal offense. Jesse Moore, the mayor of Waskom, a city located 18 miles west of Shreveport, Louisiana, and called “The Gateway to Texas,” said the city council was approached by Right to Life East Texas with concerns that, with Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi having passed laws restricting abortions, abortion providers may consider Waskom to be an ideal location for a clinic.

In Hong Kong's huge protest over a proposed law that would allow extradition from the territory to mainland China, there is far more at stake than "confidence" in the integrity of Hong Kong's legal system, or the health of Hong Kong's economy -- important though those both are. The real showdown going on in Hong Kong has long been between despotism and democracy, between tyranny and the Free World. And whether we, the free people of America, and our allies, choose to think of it this way or not, the reality is that the showdown now taking place in Hong Kong will shape our future as well.

Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr was perfectly positioned to advance the Russia collusion narrative. He had a rare set of relationships -- ties to opposition researchers and the FBI -- and would use his links to both in 2016 to connect federal law enforcement to those advancing Trump-Russia conspiracy theories. A mystery remains: To some in his narrow circle, Ohr was upfront about the compromising nature of his connections, yet he hid that fact from officials charged with overseeing ethics at the Justice Department. Why, then, did Bruce Ohr admit to the FBI that his wife worked for opposition researchers Fusion GPS while failing to disclose it to the DoJ?

The sadistic treatment of Paul Manafort illustrates something I have believed since I attended graduate school in the 1970s and saw the behavior of left-wing students: Leftism makes people meaner. There are kind and mean conservatives and kind and mean liberals. Neither liberalism nor conservatism makes people kinder or meaner. But this is not the case with leftism. With the handful of exceptions that accompany every generalization, leftism makes people meaner, even crueler. Take the transfer of Manafort, the one-time Trump campaign manager, from a federal prison to New York's Rikers Island prison. Rikers Island is universally regarded as a wretched place.

House Democrats on Monday evening abruptly halted an effort to increase congressional pay for the first time since 2009, saying the proposal would be reviewed carefully after several freshmen Democrats made overt efforts to block it. Members of Congress generally make $174,000 per year, with senior leaders earning more, and no cost-of-living adjustments have been made in the past nine years. However, vulnerable swing-state Democrats, concerned how the proposed $4,500 pay hike would look if it didn't also have Republican support, had signed onto amendments rejecting the measure.
