    A Texan woman who opened fire inside Dallas's Love Field airport on Monday, bringing the bustling transit hub to a standstill, is a career criminal with a history of arson, bank robbery and trespass, who was declared mentally unfit to stand trial. Portia Odufuwa, 37, once told police she was 'God's prophet', and claimed she was married to rapper Chris Brown. She was ordered to attend mental health treatment sessions, but a judge decided in June 2021 she was not a danger to the public. On Monday, Odufuwa was shot by police after she pulled out a gun at the airport, aimed it toward the ceiling and fired several times. She was hit in the lower body and taken to hospital: no one else was injured in the chaos, but flights were suspended and the terminal evacuated. Hours later it emerged that Odufuwa was well-known to the police, with multiple run-ins with the law dating back to 2019. Portia Odufuwa, 37, is seen in a booking photo released on Monday by Dallas police, after she opened fire inside the airport...
    CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago police officer was taken to a hospital in critical condition Wednesday after she was shot while attempting to make a traffic stop on the city’s South Side, authorities said. In a news conference at the University of Chicago Medical Center, police Supt. David Brown said at 5:42 p.m., two uniformed officers were in a marked squad car attempting a traffic stop the West Englewood neighborhood. The car the officers were trying to pull over first sped up, and then slowed down to pull even with the squad car, Brown said. At that point, someone in the car started firing a gun at the officers. The officer who was driving was shot and wounded in her upper body, Brown said. The officer who had been in the passenger seat drove the wounded officer to the hospital.

A jury is set to determine if Quantico’s former police chief was illegally fired for enforcing state-mandated COVID-19 safety measures. Former Police Chief Mark McCoy is suing the town seeking $100,000 and alleging wrongful termination for his April 2020 firing. McCoy’s lawsuit was filed Jan. 15, 2021, in Prince William County Circuit Court. This March, the case was set for a jury trial from Oct. 3 to Oct. 5. The filing centers on the operation of barbershops at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020 and the town’s response to orders for the businesses to close. Then-Gov. Ralph Northam’s first executive order causing sweeping shutdowns was issued March 12, 2020. A follow-up order, issued March 23, 2020, provided further guidance and closed a majority of businesses, including barbershops. Violation of the order was a class-one misdemeanor, which carries up to a year in jail and up to a $2,500 fine. McCoy says that, as police chief, he “has a...
    CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago officer who shot and seriously wounded a 13-year-old boy who ran away after being pulled over while driving a stolen vehicle was relieved of his police powers Friday, officials said. “He’s still an active member of the Chicago Police Department,” police spokesman Don Terry told the Chicago Tribune about the officer, whose name hasn’t been released. “He’s not going to be patrolling the streets and he won’t be able to arrest people.” The action means the officer will still get paid but will be assigned to “desk duty,” Terry said. The officer had already been placed on administrative duties while the Civilian Office of Police Accountability investigates the shooting. Police Supt. David Brown said Thursday that the fleeing teenager turned toward the officer during Wednesday’s encounter before the officer fired on him. No shots were fired at the officer, Brown said. The boy jumped from the car as officers approached the vehicle, which police said was stolen Monday and used in a carjacking Tuesday. The boy was in serious but stable condition at a...

    A Louisville metro council candidate on Monday was charged with attempted murder after he fired gunshots at a mayoral candidate, the Associated Press reports. Quintez Brown, who is running as an independent, allegedly attempted to shoot Democrat Craig Greenberg in his campaign office but, according to Louisville police spokesman Aaron Ellis, only grazed his shirt with a bullet. “Despite one bullet coming so close that it grazed my sweater and my shirt, no one was physically harmed,” said Greenberg according to the Associated Press.

    This time around, it wasn’t Antonio Brown who was topless. Despite getting unceremoniously fired by his team last week, we’re told Brown was a “fun, happy guy” as he dropped new music at a strip club on the Upper East Side on Sunday. But as usual, drama wasn’t far behind the NFL star — because security was on high alert for a woman he didn’t want to see. On January 2, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers star removed his jersey midgame, threw it into the crowd and ran off the field, later claiming that it was in protest against a coach who tried to force him to play even though he had serious ankle pain. He was quickly kicked off the team. But by the weekend Brown was contentedly working on his side hustle as a rapper, celebrating the release of his new song “Pit Not The Palace” at jiggle joint Sapphire. “He was a fun, happy guy. He was dancing and taking pictures nonstop — engaging with everyone,” a spy told Page Six. We’re told Brown — who released...

    A deputy sheriff involved in the shooting death of Andrew Brown, Jr., an unarmed Black man sitting in a car outside his North Carolina home, allegedly removed the bullets from his pistol in an attempt to cover up the extent of his actions while “stressing out about how many times he fired his weapon,” according to a bombshell federal court filing. An amended complaint for damages, filed Oct. 28 by a lawyer representing Brown’s family, claims Investigator Daniel Meads of the Pasquotank County Sheriff’s Office tampered with evidence after becoming nervous that he may have gone too far in shooting at Brown as the 42-year-old tried to escape the fusillade of gunfire. “Defendant Meads fired approximately seven (7) 9mm. rounds from his Glock -17 into Brown’s moving vehicle,” the amendment states. “At no time were any members of [law enforcement] in any imminent threat of harm or injury by Brown or his vehicle that warranted Defendant Meads to fire approximately seven (7) times into Brown’s moving vehicle.” Brown was killed in April by a bullet to the back of his...

    A superintendent in rural Oregon was fired by his school board at an emotional meeting on Monday, amid backlash because he upheld Governor Kate Brown's statewide mask mandate.  The Adrian School Board held a special closed-door meeting, which ended in the termination of superintendent Kevin Purnell.   No reason was given for his termination, but both supporters and critics said that his stance on following the statewide directive had put him at odds with the board, the Oregonian reports. The former superintendent was described by community members as a 'rule follower' who would enforce the statewide mask mandates despite his personal opposition to them.  But some community members had hoped that the local administration would fight against the mask mandates. The session lasted less than half an hour and ended with a 4-1 vote to fire Purnell. He held his position for three years and worked for the district for 14 years.  Board Chair Eddie Kincade said after the meeting that the decision was due to Purnell's failure to follow board directives but declined to elaborate, the Malheur Enterprise reported.  Kevin Purnell, a...
    WEST TOWN — A small group protested in West Town Tuesday to demand harsher sanctions for the officer who followed, confronted and grabbed a Black woman walking her dog along the lakefront Saturday night. Organized by the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, about two dozen people demonstrated outside the headquarters of the Civilian Office of Police Accountability, urging the agency to quickly investigate the incident and called on Chicago Police Supt.

    SAN QUENTIN — A California appeals court upheld the dismissal of a suit filed by a fired San Quentin State Prison staffer, who claimed she was the victim of racism and retaliation for complaints. According to the First Appellate District’s 19-page decision, issued earlier this week, there were three reasons why the plaintiff, Jada Brown, was fired: she allowed a prisoner to call his mother in an unauthorized fashion and called her at least once on his behalf, she mishandled inmate medical records, and sustained findings of dishonesty. Brown’s suit claimed she was fired due to race discrimination and for filing she made regarding work conditions. In her suit, Brown presented evidence that other California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation employees were “overfamiliar” with prisoners and weren’t fired. But the court notes that, “her overfamiliar conduct did not alone lead to her termination.” “Rather, plaintiff’s overfamiliar conduct triggered an independent investigation by (internal affairs), the fairness of which has not been challenged, that revealed numerous other acts of misconduct. There is no evidence of any comparable procedure or findings with...

    Andrew Brown Jr. hit deputies with his car before they fired shots that killed him, a prosecutor said Wednesday. Brown, 42, was shot and killed by police in North Carolina at 8.30am on April 21 while at the wheel of his car in his driveway. Police are yet to release bodycam footage of the incident; his family have called it an execution.  A judge is considering formal requests to make the video public Wednesday.  District Attorney Andrew Womble told a judge at a hearing Wednesday that he viewed body camera video and disagreed with a characterization by attorneys for the family of Brown Jr. that his car was stationary when the shooting started. Womble said the video shows that Brown´s car made contact with law enforcement twice before shots could be heard on the video. 'As it backs up, it does make contact with law enforcement officers,' he said, adding that the car stops again.  'The next movement of the car is forward. It is in the direction of law enforcement and makes contact with law enforcement. It is then...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — No bond for the man who police say shot the 21-month-old in the head on Lake Shore Drive.

They said 25-year-old Deandre Binion did shoot after they both tried to merge into the same lane. Charging documents showed Brown told Binion to back off and that...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Two Chicago Police Officers who tasered and shot a man at a CTA subway station last year should be fired for violating multiple department policies, Supt. David Brown has ruled. The two officers – Melvina Bogard and Bernard Butler – got into the altercation at the Grand Avenue stop on the Chicago Transit Authority’s Red Line in February, 2020 after the officers tried to stop Ariel Roman from moving between train cars. READ MORE: COVID In Illinois: 4,004 New Cases, 21 Additional Deaths Bogard violated department rules for deploying her Taser and then shooting Roman, which Brown said was unnecessary because Roman posed no deadly threat to her or anybody else.  Butler also violated department rules on using his Taser and failed to use approved de-escalation techniques to arrest Roman, Brown said.  Butler was also cited for placing Roman in danger for grabbing him on the edge of the subway platform. Brown concluded that both officers should be fired. That final decision is up to the Police Board, which will hold hearings on the case. The charges...

    BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — A morning radio host fired after using Black celebrities’ skin tones to describe how he likes his toast apologized Thursday, saying he was horrified when he listened to himself and vowed to learn from it. “I 100% understand why people are justifiably angry,” Rob Lederman wrote in a statement on Twitter. “I made a mistake and it’s hard to look myself in the mirror, but I want to acknowledge it.” Cumulus Media, the owner of 97 Rock in Buffalo, said it “swiftly terminated” Lederman Wednesday because his comments that morning violated the company’s programming principles. Two other on-air hosts were suspended. As a clip of the Morning Bull Podcast, with references to Serena Williams, Halle Berry and Gayle King, circulated online, several advertisers responded by pulling their ads. “Please know my comments were ignorant, but not meant to be hurtful, but I know I, as well as many others, need to learn from this,” wrote Lederman, who said he has reached out to Black civil rights and religious leaders and Mayor Byron Brown’s office for...

    QAnon Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene wrote on Facebook that she believed California's deadliest wildfire was potentially caused by space lasers that were connected to the Rothschilds and former Gov. Jerry Brown to clear the way for a high-speed rail system.  The left-leaning Media Matters for America found a since-deleted Facebook post Greene wrote in November 2018 that details her views on how the devastating Camp Fire got started, which killed 85 people, saying, 'there are too many coincidences to ignore.'  Greene, a Republican from Georgia, tried to connect the Pacific Gas and Electric Company - whose faulty equipment did start the blaze - through one of its board members to Rothschild Inc., in an anti-Semitic dog whistle.   Rep.
