But instead of finding the 911 caller or their alleged suspect, the cops tased, pepper-sprayed and beat a Native American man and shot and killed his dog.

The disturbing encounter, captured in bystander video and body cam footage released by the Inyo County Sheriff’s Office, has sparked outrage and divided residents in Bishop, a city of about 3,700 people near the Nevada border.

George Barlow, 32, was at an empty gas station on the Bishop Paiute Reservation when one of the Inyo County deputies first approached. The sheriff’s own narrative of the incident reveals Barlow wasn’t even their suspect. “While looking in the area, the deputies noticed a male subject across the street at the Chevron station, which was closed; the subject was agitated and yelling,” a press release states.

We have a moral obligation to learn Native American history

  We have a moral obligation to learn Native American history Students must learn about the violence, theft and marginalization that Native Americans endured and the challenges they still grapple with.Sadly, most Americans are unaware that similar abuses took place across 30 states from 1869 through 1978. Hundreds of thousands of Native American children were removed from their tribal communities and forced to attend government and church-run boarding schools for the purpose of cultural assimilation into U.S. society.

A California man rescued his dog from a 350 pound bear the day before Thanksgiving. Kaleb Benham was inside his home in Grass Valley, Calif., when he heard a bizarre noise from outside where his 90-pound pit bull, Buddy, had been playing. “My first thought was that I was going to lose him,” Benham told the station. Thankfully, Benham found an animal hospital that was open and Buddy was immediately put into surgery, receiving staples, stitches and tubes inserted into his head to drain fluid. Kaleb Benham (left) from California had to fight off a bear that was attacking his dog , Buddy.

No loyal American will ever shop at a retail outlet that carries MyPillow, the official pillow of the insurrection. Even lower level aides in the West Wing have already departed, leaving a skeleton crew – even as the nation faced a relentless surge of coronavirus infections and deaths. Lindell posted even after the riots with claims about ways to ‘suppress the evil’ and ‘ beat the evil’ with claims that Trump supporters ‘broke the algorithms.’

On Monday, the sheriff’s office released body cam footage of the shocking episode, which put Barlow in the hospital. (Warning: This footage includes images of police beating Barlow and shooting his dog to death.)

According to cops, Barlow charged at a deputy, refused to follow commands, and grabbed one deputy’s baton—all of which the body-cam footage backed up. But police also claimed that the dog, a pitbull, was shot after Barlow ordered it to attack, and there were no audible commands of that nature in the footage released by police.

They’ve charged Barlow with crimes including obstruction / resisting officers, threatening criminal intent, assault with a deadly weapon non-firearm, violation of parole, and battery on a peace officer.

Dog Abandoned in Heartbreaking Video Finds New Adoptive Family Less Than 24 Hours Later

  Dog Abandoned in Heartbreaking Video Finds New Adoptive Family Less Than 24 Hours Later "I don't know how those people could get in that vehicle, see that dog in the mirror running behind them and then just drive off," an animal rescuer said of the video.The video came out of Horizon City, Texas. A woman named Joy Dominguez recorded the video as she was in the area running another errand, KTSM reported.

It's official: The White House has publicly and un-apologetically announced the deployment of "strike forces" -- a military term -- to go door-to-door across America , targeting unvaccinated people in their own homes. This was proudly announced yesterday by Jen Psaki. Every human being has the right to self-defense. An assault with an experimental vaccine that has already killed at least 9,000 Americans (according to VAERS.HHS.gov) is, of course, an assault with a deadly weapon. Anyone attempting to assault you with a deadly weapon is committing a criminal act and should be arrested.

“[W]hen circumstances occur after birth such that they would have justified abortion, what we call after -birth abortion should be permissible. … [W]e propose to call this practice ‘ after -birth abortion’, rather than ‘infanticide,’ to emphasize that the moral status of the individual killed is comparable with that of a fetus … rather than to that of a child. “A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men .

Footage of the incident released by both cops and a bystander on social media seems to show the situation wasn’t so clear cut.

Inyo County District Attorney Thomas Hardy told The Daily Beast the charges against Barlow have not been referred to his office. “It’s my understanding that the sheriff has an active investigation into Mr. Barlow, but it has not been referred over,” Hardy said.

Hardy is investigating the two deputies for possible crimes related to excessive force, however. “It is our highest priority right now,” Hardy said, adding that he’s received numerous emails from citizens demanding accountability. “But it’s more important to be thorough and accurate than to be fast. That being said, I hope we will have it wrapped up in a few weeks instead of a few months.”

To Barlow’s family and supporters, the incident is another reminder of what they view as law enforcement’s brutal treatment of Indigenous residents.

5 dead, including a sheriff's deputy, in the wake of California standoff

His election and policies sparked numerous protests. Trump made many false and misleading statements during his campaigns and presidency, to a degree unprecedented in American politics. Many of his comments and actions have been characterized as racially charged or racist. After Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate his political rival Joe Biden, the House of Representatives impeached him for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress on December 18, 2019. The Senate acquitted him of both charges on February 5, 2020.

“My cousin George ‘fit the description’ and because of that he is in the hospital on life support and his dog is dead,” one family member wrote on Instagram and on a GoFundMe page. “He was not the person in question.”

Barlow “did not deserve to be brutalized like this, nobody does,” the relative added on the fundraising site, which has raised more than $25,000 for Barlow’s medical bills and lawyer fees. “Law enforcement in Payahuunadü (the Owens Valley) has a history of brutalizing Native citizens and we receive little to no justice.”

One childhood friend of Barlow’s, Lina Sandoval, described him as “the biggest teddy bear” who had a smile on his face regardless of what heartbreak he was going through, including the loss of his mother recently. “Despite his big size, he’s not aggressive,” Sandoval told us. “That’s why this is so shocking and disappointing.”

“People in Bishop are trying to justify what happened because supposedly the dog was attacking the officers,” Sandoval added. “The dog is not seen in the video until the police are beating George.”

Documents Reveal More About Gruesome Abuse Allegations Against Lead FBI Agent on Gretchen Whitmer Kidnapping Case

  Documents Reveal More About Gruesome Abuse Allegations Against Lead FBI Agent on Gretchen Whitmer Kidnapping Case Police reports obtained by Law&Crime through a public records request shed new light on domestic violence charges against a key FBI agent involved in the prosecution of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's alleged would-be kidnappers. The post Documents Reveal More About Gruesome Abuse Allegations Against Lead FBI Agent on Gretchen Whitmer Kidnapping Case first appeared on Law & Crime.FBI Special Agent Richard Trask, 39, stands accused of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, according to Kalamazoo County Court records reviewed by Law&Crime after being arrested on charges of aggravated felonious assault against a family member who was being strong armed, a term of art under Michigan law whi

The Inyo County Sheriff’s Office’s 11 minute 41 second video of the incident shows the pitbull intervening and jumping up at the deputy as he tussles with Barlow, as well as the deputy shouting, “I’m gonna shoot your dog.” But the footage did not clearly capture the dog biting the deputies, though police said they “suffered dog bites.”

The video also includes audio of the 911 call that led deputies to the area. In it, a woman reports an alleged domestic violence incident around 2 a.m. at an apartment building on Tu Su Lane.

According to a police statement, the deputies didn’t find the caller and went to the Chevron station across the street. One deputy spotted Barlow, who according to police said, “Can I kill you too,” before charging at him. (Body cam footage reviewed by The Daily Beast does appear to capture Barlow saying, “Can I … you too,” though what exactly he is saying from across the parking lot is hard to make out.)

Authorities also confirmed the deputies then struck Barlow with their batons, but said that was done after two tasers weren’t effective.

The second deputy also pepper-sprayed Barlow, police say, and he dropped the baton and walked off. Barlow was arrested after the deputies deployed a sheriff’s K-9 to pursue him.

Although the body-camera footage confirmed some of the deputies’ claims about the encounter, it only raised questions about other things.

Haaland, Native American leaders press for Indigenous land protections

  Haaland, Native American leaders press for Indigenous land protections Interior Secretary Deb Haaland joined other Native American leaders and activists at the National Mall on Thursday to accept the delivery of a totem pole transported across the country as part of a push to protect sites that are sacred to Native Americans.The event was the final stop in the "Red Road to DC," a two-week tour from Washington state to Washington, D.C., with visits to sacred locations throughout the U.S. Speaking at the event Thursday, Haaland called for greater inclusion of Native American voices in lawmaking in order to protect the sites. "The fact that we are all here is not insignificant.

At one point in an officer’s body-cam video, Barlow’s hands were in the air and he was standing shirtless, away from the cops, and yelling, “Help” while a taser’s red laser marked his chest before one of the deputies deployed it. The officer deployed the taser as Barlow turned to walk away.

A video posted to social media that was captured by a bystander from across the street paints a murkier image of the incident.

In the social media video, Barlow can be seen on the ground while officers kick him as he appears to grip one of their batons and his dog runs in circles.

Questions also remain about the initial encounter between Barlow and the deputies that police say kicked off the violent chain of events.

In the first body-cam released by cops, a deputy can be seen approaching the gas station pumps and yelling “Yo” to Barlow, who responds with “Hi” before jogging closer.

“Don’t run at me, bro,” the cop warns, as Barlow runs toward him. “Back up, you’re gonna get tased.”

“What do you want?” Barlow asks as he runs toward the deputy and raises his arms in the air. “What are you fucking with me for?”

From there, the cop deploys the taser and things immediately escalate. At the point when Barlow’s dog is shot, it was near Barlow, the footage shows.

The second deputy then grabs his German Shepherd police dog from a truck and chases after Barlow. “Help me!” Barlow shouts after the police dog jumps at him and he falls to the ground.

“Stop resisting! You’re under arrest!” one of the cops can be heard yelling. The images are too dark to see, but Barlow’s screams can be heard along with the growling.

3 dead, 1 hurt in rural South Carolina shooting

  3 dead, 1 hurt in rural South Carolina shooting GREENWOOD, S.C. (AP) — Three people were killed and one other person was hurt in a shooting Monday in rural South Carolina, and deputies released the name and picture of a man they want to interview. The shooting happened around 3 p.m. at a Greenwood County home just off U.S. Highway 25 about 8 miles (13 kilometers) south of Greenwood, the Sheriffs Office said in a news release. Sheriff’s Office Maj. Cody Bishop confirmed the three killed in the shooting to The Index-Journal of Greenwood. He didn't give a motive for the shooting.Deputies named Jeffery David Powell, 36, a person of interest and released two photos of him. They didn't give a reason investigators want to talk to him.

Police said Barlow was transported to the hospital “with one dog bite and multiple lacerations from the struggle, and the use of taser darts and batons.”

Footage from a third body cam, from a Bishop Police Department officer, showed Barlow lying naked in a pool of blood while the cops told him they were trying to render aid.

While Barlow’s condition is unclear, local radio station Sierra Wave published a photo of him with a breathing tube in the hospital.

Barlow’s family did not return messages from The Daily Beast seeking comment, but one relative posted to Facebook Monday with an update: “George had the tubes taken out!!! He is breathing on his own with medication as well… his voice is a little raspy, probably from the tubes, but I hear he is in good spirits!!!”

On Tuesday, according to the Sierra Wave, friends and relatives demanded an investigation at a meeting of the Inyo County Board of Supervisors.

“What would you do if George Barlow was your son? The whole community is your family,” said one person identified as Roger Barlow.

The board chair replied that “legally we can’t discuss” the matter. Sheriff Jeff Hollowell then told the crowd that his agency hired an independent firm to conduct an investigation, which should take about three weeks.

Sandoval told The Daily Beast it’s “absolutely absurd” that Barlow is still facing charges.

“He wasn’t a threat to anyone, he did not deserve this,” she said.
