Its about damn time someone spoke up for police officers.

Colorado FOP Releases Scathing Statement Slamming ‘Race Baiting Morons’ Who Question Why Planned Parenthood Suspect Was Captured Alive

Nov. 29, 2015 10:13am Kaitlyn Schallhorn

The Colorado Fraternal Order of Police issued a searing statement on its public Facebook page aimed at those who might question why the Colorado Planned Parenthood suspect was taken into custody alive.

“Sadly there are race baiting delusional ignorant fools with an agenda of hate that use any tragic event to peddle their corrupted opinion,” the Colorado FOP said Saturday. “What they don’t understand is our job is to preserve life not take it. You see for us all lives matter. That is the primary reason we join this profession. The standard we live by.”

Colorado police engaged in several shooting battles with the suspect inside a Planned Parenthood center on Friday for around five hours. According to the New York Times, police officers eventually drove an armored vehicle into the facility and were able to rescue some of those trapped inside.

“We’re exchanging gunfire,” one officer was heard saying over the police scanner. “We are trying to keep him pinned down.”

“Put gunfire through the walls,” an officer responded. “Whatever, we got to stop this guy.”

The Colorado FOP maintained that the suspect was captured alive because he was given an opportunity by police to surrender. The suspect took that opportunity and subsequently followed the commands of law enforcement officials afterward, according to the colorado FOP. In the statement, the Colorado FOP said the opportunity to surrender is given no matter what the suspect’s race as Colorado police have captured numerous people alive, including those of a minority race, in other shootings involving police officers.

“What the race baiting morons who believe that he was spared because he was white fail to acknowledge is that just this year alone there have been numerous shootings of police officers where the suspects were taken into custody. Many of those suspects were persons of color. They were not executed. They were taken into custody,” the Colorado FOP said. “The delusional fools that would have the world believe otherwise promote their hatefilled agenda on the foundation of a national lie rooted in the Michael Brown incident. ‘Hands up don’t shoot’ is their mantra and a false narrative surrounding the events in Ferguson.”

Police arrested Robert Lewis Dear, 57, after the attack on a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs came to an end and left one police officer and two others dead. Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains vice president of public affairs, Cathy Alderman, said all of the facility’s staff members were believed to be safe.

Early reports suggest that Dear told law enforcement officials “no more baby parts” during questioning, among other ramblings, and previous police records for a Robert Lewis Dear in South Carolina show a dark past.

As of Sunday morning, the Colorado FOP Twitter account had been set to private.

Just like clockwork, the liar in chief panders for more gun control. Once again, we need lunatic control not gun control but the left just doesn’t see the 2nd amendment as an important one.

Obama Calls for More Gun Control Following Colorado Shooting: ‘If We Truly Care About This…’
Nov. 28, 2015 11:12am Kaitlyn Schallhorn
President Barack Obama said Saturday that the Colorado shooting “is not normal” and advocated for stricter gun control.

“This is not normal. We can’t let it become normal. If we truly care about this — if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for God knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience — then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them,” Obama said in statement Saturday morning. “Period. Enough is enough.”
“The last thing Americans should have to do, over the holidays or any day, is comfort the families of people killed by gun violence — people who woke up in the morning and bid their loved ones goodbye with no idea it would be for the last time,” Obama said.

On Friday, a gunman attacked a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs and left one police officer and two civilians dead. The suspect, Robert Lewis Dear, was apprehended by police, and his motive is not yet clear. It is also unclear what — in any — connection Dear had with the Planned Parenthood.

“What we do know is that he killed a cop in the line of duty, along with two of the citizens that police officer was trying to protect,” Obama said. “We know that law enforcement saved lives, as so many of them do every day, all across America. And we know that more Americans and their families had fear forced upon them.”

And just when I thought Cartoon County was the worst at letting shitbags walk. Shame on me.

Jail, 20 years of probation for Sturgeon Lake woman who shot boyfriend
By Tom Olsen Today at 7:31 p.m.


A Pine County woman has avoided prison after admitting to shooting her boyfriend, but she’ll spend the next two decades under the watch of authorities.

Karen Lynn Eaton, 39, pleaded guilty in September to a first-degree assault charge in the August 2014 shooting of Dan Scott, who suffered two gunshot wounds to the chest in the couple’s rural Sturgeon Lake home.

Eaton was placed on 20 years of probation at her sentencing Tuesday in State District Court in Pine City. Judge James T. Reuter stayed a seven-year prison sentence, but ordered Eaton to spend a year in the Pine County Jail as a term of her probation.

A first-degree assault conviction generally carries a guideline sentence of about six to nine years for someone with no criminal history. However, defense attorneys argued for a substantially lesser sentence, citing a history of domestic abuse against Eaton that precipitated the shooting.

The shooting, which authorities said happened near the couple’s 5-year-old son, left Scott with a bullet lodged in his spine and a lacerated kidney, according to court records.

Law enforcement was dispatched to their home, 23285 Farm to Market Road, on the report of a shooting on Aug. 19, 2014. Deputies reported that they found Scott, in apparent severe pain, lying in a recliner.

Police said Scott initially claimed that he had accidentally shot himself twice while cleaning the gun, but authorities doubted the story.

After being airlifted to a Duluth hospital for treatment, Scott finally acknowledged he had been shot by Eaton, according to documents. He reported they were engaged in an ongoing argument when she shot him with the pistol. He said he began crawling toward the door to find their son, who was outside, when he was shot again.

Eaton later confirmed to an investigator that she and Scott had been arguing throughout the day, according to the criminal complaint. She stated that the argument became physical and she went to the doctor because she believed her ribs were broken.

When she returned, the argument resumed and Scott began choking her on the ground, she said. Eaton claimed that she went to her truck and retrieved the pistol, shooting him twice as he approached her in a threatening manner, according to the complaint.

Investigators disputed her account, noting that it appeared the shots probably were fired a significant distance apart and at separate times from different locations.

The report indicated that Scott’s wounds were not accompanied by any charring or black coloring from powder burns. The spent shell casings were located a “significant distance” apart on the floor. The weapon, a.380-caliber handgun, was found on top of a microwave in another room.

As part of a plea agreement, the Pine County Attorney’s Office dismissed four other felony charges against Eaton: attempted premeditated first-degree murder, attempted intentional second-degree murder and two counts of second-degree assault.

Under the terms of her probation, Eaton is not allowed to possess firearms or have unapproved contact with Scott.

There’s got to be a whole lot more to this story.

Duluth police officer charged with domestic assault
By News Tribune Today at 7:14 p.m.

A Duluth police officer has been cited for misdemeanor domestic assault after an incident in Midway Township early Sunday.

Todd Kuusisto, 37, who has been with the Duluth Police Department since 2004, is slated to appear in court for arraignment on Dec. 3.

t06.24.09 — Steve Kuchera — kucheraFRED0705 — Duluth Police Officer Todd Kuusisto

According to a report from the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office, someone placed a 911 call to report an erratic driver near Interstate 35 and Midway Road at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday. While responding to that call, a deputy was flagged down by a woman standing by the side of the road.

The woman appeared to have injuries, according to the Sheriff’s Office report. A resulting investigation led to Kuusisto’s arrest later Sunday at the Public Safety Building in Duluth. He was taken to the St. Louis County Jail, and later released.

Kuusisto, who works in the patrol division, was not on duty at the time of the alleged assault. He has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the criminal and administrative investigation and his police powers have been revoked.

In a letter filed with the court on Tuesday, the alleged victim of the assault asked that an order of protection put in place after the incident be lifted.

She wrote that she wasn’t sure of the details of the incident because it happened quickly. She said Kuusisto punched a vehicle’s mirror and windshield during an argument, and that it “probably was the mirror that hit me in the face. …

“I do not feel like I am in any harm around him,” she wrote.

The woman told the court that Kuusisto is undergoing treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and depression, and that she wants to continue working with him on counseling.

Duluth Police Chief Gordon Ramsay said in a statement Monday that he sets “high expectations for staff, and they are held to a high standard of conduct. I am disappointed to learn about this incident but will refrain from further comment until the investigations are complete.”



Cloquet man sentenced in Wisconsin for possessing child porn
By Superior Telegram on Nov 23, 2015 at 11:49 a.m.

A Cloquet man will spend five years in prison for possessing child pornography.

Arne Gene Jokinen Johnson, 26, pleaded guilty in Douglas County Circuit Court in August to one count of possession of child pornography. He was sentenced this week to five years in prison and 10 years of extended supervision.
According to the criminal complaint:

A 13-year-old boy reported to the Superior Police Department that he had conversed online with Johnson, who was using the name “Sipher Daze.” Most of the conversations were sexual in nature. After getting the IP address for “Sipher Daze” Superior police were able to find the physical address in Superior where Johnson was staying. Police found more than 1,500 images of suspected child pornography and several pornographic videos that appeared to contain young males between ages 12 and 16 years on Johnson’s cell phone.

While some appeared to have been downloaded from the internet, others appeared to have come from specific individuals. Johnson told investigators that some of the pictures were of local children, although he declined to give names. Johnson admitted he has a problem and tried to get treatment for having an interest in younger boys.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children confirmed that Johnson’s cell phone held child pornography from three different series.

At sentencing, Johnson was ordered not to have contact with anybody under 18 years of age and not to use the internet. He must also maintain absolute sobriety, register as a sex offender and complete recommended psychological treatment.

When interviewed in March 2014, he said he sought the images because he has a “lust and desire” that he “can’t control.”

I can only hope this will be 17 1/2 miserable years. There really has to be a special place in hell. Tell me again why MN doesn’t have a death penalty.



Former Duluth firefighter gets 17½ years in child pornography case
By Robb Jeffries Today at 6:39 p.m.

MINNEAPOLIS — A former Duluth firefighter was sentenced Monday to 17½ years in prison for producing child pornography.

Caleb Lofald, 33, was given the mandatory minimum sentence for the severity of his offense by U.S. District Judge Ann Montgomery. He will have to register as a sex offender and spend 25 years under probation after his release.

Investigators last year found about 36,000 images and more than 2,000 videos of child pornography on electronic devices in Lofald’s possession. Among them, there were photos and videos of Lofald molesting an infant he was babysitting.

He still faces first- and second-degree criminal sexual assault charges at the state level, with a review hearing scheduled for Dec. 9. His remaining federal charges have been dismissed.

Lofald clearly was stricken with emotion throughout Monday’s hearing, often glancing behind him at the courtroom that was packed with fellow firefighters, friends and family — including the parents of the infant he victimized. He addressed those parents directly in his statement before receiving his sentence.

“I must apologize to the child, and the parents of the child who was the victim,” Lofald said. “You deserve nothing but joy and peace in your lives, but what you got is a nightmare. It is something I am very sorry for, and something I can never make up for.”

Lofald also offered his apologies to the investigators who had to sort through the images and videos found on his home computer and a computer at Duluth’s Fire Station 7, located on Maple Grove Road.

“You had to painstakingly go through the filth I amassed,” he said. “I buried those disturbing images that will be burned in your minds the rest of your lives.”

Lofald’s obsession began in high school, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Carol Kayser. It grew as Lofald aged, as he downloaded child pornography and set up hidden cameras in his guest bedroom to record unsuspecting visitors while they changed clothes.

Montgomery characterized Lofald as someone with a “dark and reprehensible addiction” who was in need of immediate rehabilitation.

She struggled for words when explaining her thought process in determining a sentence.

“I haven’t sentenced many — if any — people with this sort of pedophilia behavior when they have, from at least everything I can determine, an intact marriage,” Montgomery said. “It seems to be a functioning and supportive marriage, and certainly there’s family support and you had a job you loved. … There seemed to be enough support to keep you on track, instead of going so far off the rails as has happened here.

“It’s hard to figure out what went so wrong.”

Montgomery said Lofald’s cooperation with investigators and the fact he did not distribute any of the pornography he created weighed in her decision to hand down only the mandatory minimum.

Lofald’s attorney, Paul Engh, expressed his concern with the case being sent to federal court. He estimated Lofald, a first-time offender, would have received a fraction of time in prison if tried at the state level.

“There is a growing consensus that these sentencing practices are … out of whack,” he told Montgomery during the hearing. “There is no evidence that 15 years, 16 years, 17 years, whatever you have in mind for Mr. Lofald, will act as a deterrent for others.”

The judge said she thought the venue was appropriate for Lofald’s case because of the volume and nature of his transgressions, but Montgomery did agree with some of Engh’s points.

“I share many (of those) frustrations … with Congress passing a mandatory minimum and saying ‘here’s a number that you must respect,’ ” she said. “I’m well aware, having been on both sides of federal and state (law), that there are consequences of sending a case to federal court.”

Lofald, who was raised in Hermantown, held a position as a firefighter with the Fargo Fire Department before returning to the Duluth area to work for the Duluth Fire Department. After initially placing him on paid administrative leave during the criminal investigation, Duluth city officials terminated Lofald’s employment on Feb. 2.

Keep in mind, this is an arrest, not a conviction.

Duluth police officer arrested for domestic assault
By John Myers Today at 11:59 a.m.

A Duluth police officer was arrested Sunday on charges of domestic assault.

The officer was arrested at the Public Safety Building in Duluth just after 3:30 p.m. Sunday for misdemeanor 5th degree domestic assault.

The officer was transported the St. Louis County Jail where he remained Monday morning. Bail has not yet been set.

The officer has not yet been formally charged in court. But according to Duluth police, the domestic assault incident took place early Sunday morning outside of the Duluth city limits in an uincorporated area of St. Louis County.

“We received information from the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office that they were investigating a complaint of domestic assault and had obtained probable cause to arrest the suspect…” Duluth police said in a news release. “We assisted the county in looking for (the suspect) and coordinated his arrest with St. Louis County.

The incident is still being investigated by the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office.

The officer has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the criminal and administrative investigation and his police powers have been revoked. The officer, who has been on the department since 2004, works in the patrol division.

“I set high expectations for staff and they are held to a high standard of conduct. I am disappointed to learn about this incident, but will refrain from further comment until the investigations are complete. I will be open and transparent to our community without jeopardizing the investigation process,” Duluth Police Chief Gordon Ramsay said in a statement. “It is imperative to the integrity of the Duluth Police Department and the sense of trust that our community has in us that domestic violence will not be tolerated.”

This pandering will be seen as throwing the police under the bus….and it is.

Gov. Dayton meets with family of man shot by Minneapolis officers
By Nick Woltman

UPDATED: 11/21/2015 10:42:22 PM CST

Gov. Mark Dayton and Rep. Keith Ellison met Saturday with members of Black Lives Matter and the family of Jamar Clark, the unarmed black man shot and killed by Minneapolis police officers last Sunday.

BLM demonstrators have spent the past week camped out at the city’s 4th Precinct police station demanding the release of video of the shooting, which is being investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice at the request of Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges.

“I will urge that the tapes be provided to the family and released to the public, as soon as doing so will not jeopardize the Department of Justice’s investigation,” Dayton said in a news release. “I also reiterate my call for a Special Session of the Minnesota Legislature to address the racial disparities in North Minneapolis and elsewhere in Minnesota.”

Dayton said he has asked Clark’s family and BLM leaders to meet with Justice Department attorneys about the tapes while the attorneys are in the Twin Cities on Sunday.

He also called for an investigation into “any matters” during the weeklong protests “that may have violated the civil rights of any Minnesota citizens.”

Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau responded to Dayton’s statement Saturday night, expressing support for her officers.

“Any investigation, federal, state, or county into my officers’ conduct at the 4th Precinct during this time will only confirm the strength of the work my officers did protecting both public safety and the freedom of speech,” Harteau said in the statement.

Nick Woltman can be reached at 651-228-5189.

If you’ve got 18 minutes, take a peek at this video…this is what some in your government want to import to the USA

Muslim Refugees: This Could be the Most Disturbing Video You Will Ever See

Many in America are still fast asleep in their mental beds, completely unaware of the judgment that is upon them and what is coming. I would normally comment on video that I post, but I think seeing this video is something that you have to personally assess with your own eyes and your own mind.

The purpose in sharing this is not to frighten people, but to awaken those still asleep as to what is going on. As Christians, we should be those opposed to our money being funneled through government as a welfare state for anyone, including those from other countries. However, if they are brought here, we must be those who are courageously pushing forward with the Gospel of Jesus Christ that saves even antichrist Muslims from their sins!

What we see taking place in Europe through an invasion of Muslims into the West is a preview of what is coming to America if we do not take a stand and do what is right.

Please share this video to help open the eyes of your friends as well.

After Night Of Clashes, Protests Continue In Minneapolis
Updated November 19, 20152:19 PM ET

Protesters in Minneapolis clashed with police Wednesday night, as demonstrations over the police shooting of a black man intensified.

Minnesota Public Radio reports:

“A gathering of hundreds of protesters at a north Minneapolis precinct grew tense Wednesday night, after police cleared the entrance of the station where some had camped since Sunday after Jamar Clark was shot by police.
“Police sprayed a chemical irritant at a crowd through a chain link fence, and Minneapolis officials say some officers were targeted as well.
“By late afternoon, around 300 Black Lives Matter protesters stood in a cold rain outside the precinct. When police removed a few of them from inside the vestibule, the protest grew outside.”
According to The New York Times, Clark was shot in the head by police on Sunday and he died Monday at a hospital. The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that police say they shot Clark after a “struggle with officers.” Clark, they said, was interfering with paramedics who were treating his girlfriend.

Demonstrators have taken to the streets daily since the shooting.

Minneapolis Police said that on Wednesday night, they had fired one “marking round” to someone “throwing bricks” and that they had used a chemical irritants after their officers were attacked with rocks and bottles.

A video posted by the independent news outlet Unicorn Riot appears to show police firing multiple marking rounds. It also captures the tense atmosphere of Wednesday:

The AP talked to one protester, Wintana Melekin, who complained about the police tactics being used to disperse protesters:
Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges released a statement today calling on protesters to “act peacefully” and on police officers to “exercise maximum restraint.”

She went on:

“I understand that emotions are running high in the community and across the City. I share many of the emotions that people are feeling in Minneapolis today. I firmly believe in everyone’s right to protest and understand that people want to have places where they can gather and do that peacefully. We also want to ensure everyone’s safety.”
Update at 2:15 p.m. ET. ‘Mass Occupation’ Planned:

The Black Lives Matter movement in Minneapolis are say they have plans for a “mass occupation” today at 5 p.m. ET.

“Today, we will grow in numbers and let the nation know that this type of oppression and injustice will not stand in our city,” the group said in the event’s Facebook page.
