Judge Resigns After Sharing Image Of Noose In 'Make America Great Again' Post

Judge Resigns After Sharing Image Of Noose In 'Make America Great Again' Post A judge in upstate New York was forced to resign after posting an image of a noose on his Facebook page with a caption claiming people must be punished in order to "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN," officials said Tuesday. Kyle R. Canning, 29, who served as a justice for the Altona Town Court about175 miles north of Albany, submitted his resignation in June after the NewYork State Commission on Judicial Conduct charged him about a month earlier with “conveying racial and/or political bias” on Facebook. “IF WE WANT TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN WE WILL HAVE TO MAKE EVIL PEOPLE FEAR PUNISHMENT AGAIN,” the post in question stated, echoing President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan.

It is one of at least three recent lawsuits against Crawford and the Ninth Mobile Division over traffic stops in western Louisville .

Body camera video obtained by WLKY shows Detective Kevin Crawford pulling over Tyrone Daugherty for failing to use his turn signal near Hale and Cecil avenues last September.

Daugherty, who is a black man, told the officer that he had a legally owned gun in the car and showed the officer his concealed carry license, the video shows.

A Louisville man who was allegedly punched by police officers during a traffic stop has filed a lawsuit against the city and the Louisville Metro Police

It is one of at least three recent lawsuits against Detective Kevin Crawford and the Ninth Mobile Division over traffic stops in west Louisville .

Police ordered Daugherty out of his vehicle before K-9 officers searched the car for drugs—none were found.

"The goal was to pull him over and search the vehicle. It wasn't to pull him over for a minor traffic violation," attorney Shaun Wimberly said. "This would not have been done if the driver was a Caucasian male."

WLKY reached out to LMPD for a comment but was told the department does not comment on pending litigation.

We know that Detective Crawford resigned in June and an internal investigation involving the complaint is underway.

Crawford was also named in two other lawsuits involving traffics stops last year, including the stop of 18-year-old Tae-Ahn Lea, whose stop sparked local outrage and a recent change in LMPD's traffic stop policy.

Russian man sues Apple, claiming that his iPhone made him gay .
Apple is certainly no stranger to frivolous lawsuits, but the latest suit targeting the company really sets a new standard for absurdity. According to a report from Newsweek, a Russian man is suing Apple on the allegation that an app he downloaded turned him gay. The story originally surfaced via The Moscow Times and relays that a man known as D. Razumilov downloaded an obscure cryptocurrency app called GayCoins to his iPhone in 2017. While on the app, as the lawsuit reads, he received an anonymous message urging him to have an open mind towards having relations with another man. And so, Razumilov eventually did just that.
