The Man Who Killed Tamir Rice Aboriginal News Group Newswire

The Man Who Killed Tamir Rice: [blackenterprise.com] -- By December 5, 2012, Loehmann was no longer a police officer. The Independence Police Department has stated that Loehmann’s employment lasted a total of five months. Four out of those five months were spent in the police academy. Loehmann had spent only a month as an official police officer before his alarming misconduct became too much of a liability for the Independence police force.

According to Loehmann, he voluntarily resigned. According to the Independence Police force, he quit before they could fire him.

In five short months, Loehmann was deemed “emotionally unstable” and unfit for service as a police officer. In his personnel records, his direct supervisors described him as having a “lack of maturity” as well as an “inability to perform basic functions as instructed.” These supervisors were referring to the disturbing behavior Loehmann exhibited during a weapons training session.

Loehmann’s worrisome conduct and mental instability when handling weapons would become a reoccurring theme in his personnel files.

In another training session held at a gun range, Loehmann suffered what was described as an “emotional meltdown.” In a memo sent to Human Resources, Deputy Chief Jim Polak of the Independence Police Department referred to this incident as a “dangerous loss of composure.” Polak noted that Loehmann’s “handgun performance was dismal” and that he was “distracted and weepy” during the training session. After Loehmann’s weapons were taken away by the training officer, he continued his “emotional meltdown” with detailed descriptions of his apparent issues with a girlfriend.

Proposed change to French constitution likened to Nazi-era policy | The Electronic Intifada Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Proposed change to French constitution likened to Nazi-era policy | The Electronic Intifada: A lawmaker from the ruling Socialist Party has likened one proposed change to a Nazi-era policy used against Jews.

If the amendments are approved, Amnesty says, they would “allow authorities to continue using state of emergency measures for a further six months after the end of a state of emergency.”

On Wednesday, the French cabinet approved the draft measures, including a controversial provision allowing the government to strip French citizenship from dual nationals born in France who are convicted of terrorism offenses.

The measure was first proposed by President Fran�ois Hollande after suspected Islamic State gunmen killed 130 people in Paris on 13 November.

"War on Cops" Myth Debunked Again: 2015 Is One of Law Enforcement's Safest Years Ever | Complex Aboriginal News Group Newswire

"War on Cops" Myth Debunked Again: 2015 Is One of Law Enforcement's Safest Years Ever | Complex: If we look at the rate of killings of cops, the trend is more pronounced. There are two ways examine the rate of police killings. The first is to look at the rate of killings of cops per 100K cops on the street. This figure is somewhat difficult to calculate because there are widely varying estimates of how many cops are on the street. It depends on how you define “police officer,” who is doing the estimating, and various other factors. But if you use consistent sources, the number of police has generally gone up, while the number of officers killed has generally gone down.
