Canadian police said an attack on an officer outside a football game with a car and knife, and a high-speed chase of a U-Haul van that left four other people injured in the western city of Edmonton, Alberta, are being investigated as acts of terrorism.
Edmonton Police chief Rod Knecht said that officers took a suspect in custody and they think he acted alone. Knecht said an Islamic State group flag was found in the car that hit the officer. They later described him as a 30-year-old Edmonton man.
The attack began outside Commonwealth Stadium on Saturday night when police say a white Chevrolet Malibu rammed a traffic control barricade and sent an officer flying into the air 15 feet. A Canadian Football League game was in progress at the stadium.
Police said at least 50 people were detained Saturday during a right-wing demonstration in Sweden’s second-largest city that left one police officer and several others injured.
The rally by the Nordic Resistance Movement in Goteborg, 400 kilometers (248 miles) southwest of Stockholm, featured an estimated 600 people marching in formation in all-black outfits. Some wore helmets and held shields, while others hoisted the movement’s green-and-white flags.
Police had posted flyers before the event warning people not to act in a way reminiscent of German Nazis demonstrations in the 1930s and 1940s.
NMR, which promotes an openly anti-Semitic doctrine, originally sought to pass near a downtown synagogue during the march, which coincided with Yom Kippur, Judaism’s holiest day of the year. But Swedish courts intervened and shortened the route to less than one kilometer (0.6 mile.) The rally’s ending time also was shortened to avoid clashing with a nearby soccer game.
Counter-demonstrators threw fireworks and attempted several times to break police lines, allegedly to confront NMR members, who also tried to get past riot police. Several were detained on suspicion of rioting, police said.
“Stones, bottles and sticks were also thrown at us,” police spokesman Hans Lippens said.
Arkansas State Police will be conducting an administrative review of the police troop that patrols the northwest part of the state, an agency spokesman said. The review follows several incidents from Troop L in Springdale, including a high-speed pursuit that resulted in a trooper striking a lieutenant with his vehicle, police spokesman Bill Sadler said. Trooper Alan Aiken's report states he mistook Lt. John Overman of the State Police for a fleeing driver during the Jan. 11 pursuit. A video recording shows Aiken's car striking Overman from behind and knocking him sideways to the ground. Last week, Overman filed a complaint against Aiken and said the trooper wasn't taking the incident seriously and said a tire rolled over his lower legs and gave him "life-long" injuries. The complaint is being investigated by the professional standards office, Sadler said. Other recentolfrt incidents include two civilian troop telecommunications operators that were suspended for several days without pay after they were accused of documenting sick leave as work time "on numerous occasions," according to a report. The State Police Review Board found the accusations to be true. Sadler said commanders from administrative headquarters and Office of Professional Standards staff will meet with the troop's supervisors and troopers to review "routine practices and procedures." The review began earlier this year. Saddler said the review was requested by Capt. Lance King and other police officials. The troop patrols Benton, Carroll, Madison and Washington counties.
Catalonia riot police turned on a loyal dog that refused to leave its owner’s side as he was dragged along the ground amid violent scenes outside a polling station today. Shocking footage of bloodied voters has been coming out of Catalonia throughout the morning with riot police taking to the streets amid a bid to stop the “illegal” independence referendum. The latest incident, which was filmed by a member of the public, shows armoured cops manhandle crowds of people and even target a dog that refused to run away from his injured owner. The chaos unfolds as a large group of riot police tackle voters outside a polling station in Catalonia. Throughout the clip people are seen being thrown to the ground as the line of police surge towards another group of people. As bystanders get caught in the rush, one man can be seen being trampled on the floor alongside his loyal companion. While many other dogs would bolt away from the scene this pet stays with his injured owner, before being forcefully pushed away by masked cops. As the shocked and dazed owner eventually frees himself from the crowd, another officer can be seen helping him to his feet. As the man attempts to escape the danger he watches on as more people are seen being thrown to the ground around him.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department has received a tweet response from President Donald Trump.
On Thursday, IMPD's Twitter account sent tweet thanking @POTUS for "delaying wheels up" to speak with Officer Robert Turner, who had been injured escorting Trump's motorcade back to the Indianapolis International Airport.
In response, the @realDonaldTrump account replied Friday evening with a photo of Trump surrounded by officers at the airport with the message, "THANK YOU to the amazing Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and all law enforcement officers, for all you do 24/7/365! #LESM."
The hashtag #LESM typically refers to "law enforcement social media."
Turner was released from the hospital Wednesday night and is recuperating, according to a tweet from IMPD.
One of Holland's most wanted criminals was pulled over by police - before he sped off as officers tried to surround the vehicle. The man, known as Luciano D., has been on the National Detection List since June when he fled authorities. He was caught last night in Amsterdam after the police checked a group of young people in a car following a report of a home burglary nearby. One of them gave a false name - it was Luciano and he then he tried to drive away. Footage of the incident shows the car speeding off as loud bangs can be heard, possibly gunshots, as officers surround the vehicle. Four officers are seen plus a police dog initially. Several people get out of the vehicle in tense scenes. Three of the officers - without the dog - draw their weapons. Suddenly, the car speeds off and more bangs can be heard. Luciano was found later in a garage at the Jacob van Maerlantstraat, At5 reports. It was reported he was arrested for two armed robberies.
LVPD release body cam footage of Michael Bennett arrest during 'active shooting' in Las Vegas.
A police officer has shot an allegedly suicidal hospital prisoner dead after the man pointed a Taser at him and a nurse. Bodycam footage shows the horrific moment prisoner, Cody O'Bryan, is killed with one shot after trying to use the stun gun on hospital staff and officers. Las Vegas Metro Police are now investigating why the 31-year-old man was left in a room alone with a bag which contained the stun gun, and why he had not been properly restrained to his hospital bed. Officers received a call from O'Bryan on Sunday when he called the emergency services and claimed he was feeling suicidal. He said he was going to "blast it out with officers" and alleged that he had a loaded pistol on his person. After attending the scene, officers discovered that O'Bryan had a warrant from parole and probation for gross misdemeanour and attempted battery with substantial bodily harm, prompting them to arrest him.
A suspect is in custody after an officer-involved shooting in Phoenix on Thursday morning. The shooting happened around 8 a.m. near 7th Street and Greenway Parkway. Police say officers first responded to the area on a call of a suspicious vehicle parked in a neighborhood. The driver fled when officers arrived, driving toward one of the officers. The officer at risk shot at the suspect's vehicle. The suspect, later identified as 22-year-old Antonio Garcia Goff, was found in a backyard and taken into custody. Goff was treated for a minor injury that may have been the result of the shooting incident, as well as a bite injury from a police K-9. He has since been booked into jail on an outstanding warrant and charges of trespassing and aggravated assault on an officer.
9-27-2017, 9:30am (PST): Shots fired in standoff, westbound Interstate 80 in Emeryville, CA (near Powell Street exit). Another motorist next to me is the one saying "it's fucked up", not me. I did not say anything while filming the video.
"Drop the gun! Drop the gun! Drop the gun now!" a Cottonwood Heights police sergeant can be heard in body camera video yelling at the teen suspect. Just moments later, the officer fires a single shot, hitting the 17-year-old boy in the abdomen. "Sir, why did you reach in your pants?" the officer asks the boy in the video as he handcuffs him. The videos from an early morning officer-involved shooting on Sept. 3 were released Monday by the Cottonwood Heights Police Department. The incident began as a routine traffic stop at 3 a.m. But when the two occupants of a vehicle sped away, it resulted in a chase that ended when the teenage driver crashed his car on I-15 near 1300 South. In his body camera video, the sergeant, whose name has not been released, is heard telling dispatchers that a male and a female juvenile are out of the car and running down the off-ramp at 1300 South. As the sergeant follows, he finds the teens under the freeway overpass at 1300 South. The girl has stopped running. But the 17-year-old boy is still walking. The officer, believing he saw a gun, gets out of his patrol car yelling at the boy to "drop it." Although a gun was recovered, investigators have not said whether the teen was actually holding a gun in his hand. "Drop it now. Get on the ground. Get on the ground now or I’ll shoot you,” the officer orders at gunpoint. As the teen sits on the ground and raises his hands above his head, the officer orders him to roll over onto his stomach. It's at that point that the boy seems to be moving his hands near his waistband. "Do not move. Don’t move," the sergeant yells. "I’m not moving sir," the teen replies. "Don't. Don't. Don't," the sergeant continues to yell in quick succession before firing one shot. After firing the shot, the officer orders the teen to "stay down." He then radios to police dispatch, "Suspect reached for his waist, shots fired." "What were you reaching for?" the officer asks the boy. The boy is still conscious and alert after being shot and is able to communicate in the video with the sergeant and backup officers who arrive on scene. After putting the boy in handcuffs, the officers immediately start giving the boy medical attention. The teen claimed he was not carrying a gun. "I'm just trying to call my parents. Trying to get my phone to call my parents," he is heard saying, and later reiterates to police, "I need you to call my parents right now, let them know what's going on." But Cottonwood Heights Police Lt. Dan Bartlett said investigators at the scene did find a small .22-caliber handgun in the boy's pants. The teen was taken to a local hospital where he underwent surgery. He was released about a week later, Bartlett said. The boy, whose name has not been released, has since been charged in juvenile court with fleeing and illegal possession of a firearm. The Salt Lake County District Attorney's Office is investigating the case to determine whether the shooting was legally justified. Cottonwood Heights police administrators feel confident the shooting was justified. So much so that the sergeant has already been allowed to return to regular duty and the department released the body camera video to the public on Monday, something that doesn't typically happen until the district attorney's office has completed its investigation. Bartlett said his department wanted to release the videos to the public "in the interest of transparency," and to show not only what the officer was faced with, but also highlight the life-saving efforts the officers at the scene did for the boy. "We want to be able to get this out as quickly as we could. The D.A. has the stance that he has on the release of the videos. But the chief really wanted to get this out. We thought it was a great video to share with the public to show how these things happen and the events that transpired, and it kind of gives the officer’s view of what’s going on,” he said. "We’re not out here trying to kill people despite what you see and hear all the time. That’s not what they were trying to do. The video clearly shows they were trying to save this young man's life and provide him care, even though they had just been through this event." Bartlett said the sergeant who fired the shot "absolutely, he thought his life was in danger." "I’m grateful that no one lost their life. I’m grateful that our officer showed compassion when dealing with this young man with their life-saving efforts," he said.
A police officer has been jailed for two years after he was filmed beating up a suspected paedophile by kicking him in the groin. The man had allegedly confessed to raping a young girl after being arrested and taken into custody. But the young sergeant decided to dispense his own form of justice and took his chance when a senior colleague left the room. The policeman was caught on CCTV inside the police station attacking the suspect with his truncheon, feet and fist, in the city of Satbayev in central Kazakhstan. The unnamed 50-year-old suspect groans in pain as he is beaten, including one heavy kick to the groin that nearly makes him fall to the floor. It was reported that the parents of a young girl contacted police to say that they had found their daughter in the suspect's flat. The suspect's court date is still said to be a month away and he remains in custody awaiting trial. The junior sergeant who beat him has been sacked, jailed for two years and been barred from any public sector job for 18 months following his sentence.
WARNING: Graphic images. The terrifying encounter was captured on the officer's bodyworn camera and shows him lying on the floor and screaming in pain as the dog attacks This is the terrifying moment a brave police officer is attacked by an out of control dog in the line of duty. The officer's harrowing screams can be heard in the disturbing footage after the person suspected of being the owner of the dog set him to attack the cop. The terrifying encounter was captured on the officer's bodyworn camera and shows him lying on the floor and screaming in pain as the dog attacks. The officer, who was left with deep wounds to his leg, had to Taser the dog as it clung on to his thigh. The unnamed policeman had pulled up in his patrol car and spotted Michael Foster riding his bike with his dog chasing behind. But as the officer jumped out and chased the 22-year-old suspect, he dropped the bike and started to run. The policeman shouted at Foster to stop and manages to grab his coat as Foster's dog barked aggressively. Instead of grabbing the dog as instructed by the officer, Foster ran behind a vehicle. The dog jumped up and bit the PC on his left thigh and wrist, forcing the cop to use his taser to get the dog off him. It then ran off and has not been traced as the officer limped back to his car to wait for back up, before being treated in hospital for his injuries. Foster, of London, was arrested later that day on suspicion of being in charge of a dog dangerously out of control causing injury. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced at Harrow Crown Court on Monday to two years and five months in jail. Sergeant Craig Martin, from Barnet's Gangs Unit, said: "Foster used his dog as a weapon to facilitate his escape from a drugs search. "The attack resulted in the officer receiving serious injuries, which needed hospital treatment. "No officer should be attacked for simply carrying out their duty and dogs should never be used as a weapon. "Anyone who thinks it is okay to injure an officer or use a dog inappropriately will be brought to justice."
A shirtless man has been filmed fleeing from police as they repeatedly try to mace him in the face. Daniel Graetzer uploaded a video of the man running down the streets of Fitzroy in Melbourne at midday while being chased down by two uniformed officers. 'Just another Tuesday in Straya. This bloke just tried to steal a cop car... #LuckyThisIsntUSA' the caption on the video reads. Victorian police confirmed that the 24-year-old man was driving erratically on Alexandra Parade and hit a traffic sign. His car ended up on the footpath shortly after the crash. The man then began running through oncoming traffic, which was when police gave chase with capsicum spray. One police officer sustained a facial injury and the second member got secondary exposure to the spray. He was arrested on St Georges Road in North Fitzroy and is currently in hospital on police guard. He is yet to be charged. Many of the commenters underneath the post where quick to laugh at the strange situation and point out how Australian it is.

Mayhem In St. Louis
The Blaine County Prosecutor says Boise Police officers involved in a fatal shooting of a man in the foothills earlier this year were justified in the shooting. On March 18, police say Benjamin C. Barnes was threatening to shoot hikers and dogs in the Hulls Gulch area. One dog was eventually fatally shot by Barnes, officials say. Officers say they saw Barnes take an aggressive shooters stance and begin to discharge several rounds from a firearm toward them. Officers returned fire and fatally wounded Barnes.
On September 22, 2017 at 1:58AM a citizen in the 10000 block of West Meadow Drive called to report suspicious persons got out of a smaller blue vehicle and were walking around houses. A short time later a Hales Corners Police Department officer attempted to stop a small blue vehicle which fled eastbound on Forest Home Avenue. A Greenfield officer found the vehicle at 60th and Forest Home, attempted to stop it and the suspect vehicle fled. As the fleeing vehicle approached 51st Street, a supervisor was ahead of the vehicle with his emergency lights activated attempting to slow the fleeing car.

In video that appears like a scene from Transformers, a bulldozer backs over a police squad car on a Kankakee street-and then leads a cordon of cops on a low-speed chase.
The never-before-seen police dash cam videos, from various angles and numerous patrol cars, was obtained Monday by the ABC7 I-Team after a Freedom of Information Act filing.
Police say 18-year old Austin White of Bourbonnais had stolen the bulldozer from a Bradley construction site at 3 a.m. on August 24 and began driving it around streets in nearby Kankakee. Clearly seen on one video the bulldozer backs over a squad car when an officer tries to stop him. That officer can be seen running from the squad just as the car is being crushed by the bulldozer, that weighed about 20 tons.
An off-duty officer first reported seeing the bulldozer spinning around a Kankakee intersection and numerous on-duty units then responded.
After backing onto the squad car, other police vehicles followed the dozer along 12 city blocks. Video obtained by the I-Team shows officers on foot running next to the bulldozer and at times jumping onto the back in an effort to curb the heavy construction equipment.
A city police officer saved a distraught man from falling to his death from an eighth floor apartment Sunday morning. The officer's body camera was recording as the man dangled from a window in the Trent Center high-rise apartments on Greenwood Avenue. The rookie officer, Freddy Jimenez, was there because the man's wife had just died of natural causes, police said. During routine police work, the distraught man went to another room and climbed out of a window and was hanging by his fingertips. The apartments do not have balconies. When Jimenez entered the room, all that is visible is the man's knuckles. The man is heard saying to himself, in distress, "Do it, do it, do it." Jimenez grabs for the man, calls for backup - he was the only officer in the apartment - and starts talking to him. "Sir, please don't! Sir hang on!' Jimenez says. "I am here to help you - please!" The man then asks the officer to grab his leg and says, "I don't want to die." "I don't want you to die," Jimenez responds. "I got you, I got your leg," Jimenez says as he struggles to haul the man inside. Jimenez then collapses to the floor with the man and reports on his radio the man is safe - all before backup arrives. A police spokesman said Jimenez's heroic actions speak for themselves on the video, which the department made public Tuesday after news spread among officers about how dramatic it was. Jimenez graduated from the police academy in October 2016.

A killer released from a psychiatric hospital with the all-clear decapitated an 18-month-old baby relative with a knife and brandished the severed head in a public street, eyewitnesses say. Mikhail Elinsky, 42, also stabbed his niece - the dead girl's mother - resulting in serious abdominal injuries. A video shows him repeatedly taunting officers with a knife and refusing to give himself up. He was eventually shot by police and taken to a hospital in Astrakhan, Russia, where he later died. The man's niece Tatiana had earlier pleaded with the authorities not to release him from psychiatric hospital, fearing he remained a danger after he had killed a woman six years ago. She desperately tried to save her daughter Natalia but was was stabbed as she came close to the kitchen where Elinsky was butchering the child. Eyewitness Anastasiya Miloserdova said: "The little girl was his niece, and his mother had begged not to let him out of the mental clinic. "And look how it ended - he ran around the area with the cut off head of the little one." Tatiana said: "We were about to go out, and my daughter was sitting on her tricycle. "He pulled her off, grabbed her and took her to the kitchen. "He closed the door and began to cut her. "I tried to stop him and ran to the kitchen but he stabbed me in the stomach with his knife." Her husband Igor was too grief-stricken to speak. A local report said the man "ran around the street holding up her head... "It took police half an hour to detain the man. He was taken to the hospital with three gun wounds." Law enforcement have confirmed the knifeman killed the child, wounded the mother and that he died of gun shot wounds in hospital. Six years ago, the knifeman had killed a female shop assistant in the same city, repeatedly stabbing her with a knife in a drunken rage. He was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and sent by a judge to a high security hospital for treatment. The man was released recently as "healthy", it was reported. Tatiana's work colleague Viktoria Mikhaylova said: "It is such a horror. "I worked with this woman. "Her daughter was slightly younger than my son. "It was done by her uncle, he got drunk and did this. "She had been so happy when her daughter was born. She also has a son. "Rest in peace, little girl." The knifeman's mother Valentina Elinskaya said her son had complained about the noise in the family home made by the girl and her four-year-old brother who was unharmed. "So he stabbed the little girl, who is his grand niece. Her mother is his niece," she said. "His mood changed two days ago and that was it. "He was walking around and thinking about something." A local police source said: "Nobody warned us about this man. "Nobody sent us any information about him. "It happens in our country. "There were no reports to us he was about to be released."
At least 80 people have been arrested during protests that were encouraged by the Democrats on their social media accounts.
On the 17th the St. Louis young Democrats twitter page and Facebook page posted numerous images and text posts encouraging black lives matter and those who support the movement to rise up and fight back against police and anyone who doesn't believe what they believe.
Well, black lives matter terrorists took it upon themselves to do exactly that!
This is yet more proof that the Democrats are not only controlling the black lives matter terrorist group along with Antifa, but they are actually encouraging them to commit these acts of violence and terrorism throughout the United States in hopes they can take over the country just like the fascists Nazis they stole their tactics from.
