Two Long Island police officers could face disciplinary actions after they were seen on video taking a selfie together in front of a burning house.
The officers were called to the New York suburb of Uniondale because of a house fire Thursday, according to the Nassau County Police Department. A video first published by NBC New York shows the two unnamed officers taking a picture while a fire engulfed the home behind them.
Police department officials did not take the video lightly.
“The contents of this video are very concerning to the department and are currently under investigation. If these officers are found to be in violation of any department rules and regulations, they will be appropriately disciplined,” Acting Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter said in a statement.

Nick Tullier's family never stopped dreaming of the day the East Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Sheriff's deputy would emerge from a coma. That day finally arrived.
"People have asked us a number of times, 'Is Nick a miracle?'" said James Tullier, Nick's father, as he grinned.
"To us, yes. Nick's a miracle."
Since July 17, when he was shot in the head and abdomen after answering a call to take down an active shooter who was targeting officers, the family of Nick Tullier hasn't left his side.
Tullier spent four months in a coma and has spent the last month going through intense rehabilitation at TIRR Memorial Hermann in Houston. His parents and fiancée have been working with him on an extremely difficult, yet astounding recovery.
There is no excuse for violence against police. It’s time progressive intellectuals said so. In the hours and days after terrorist massacres of police, one cannot justify violence and remain a member of polite society. Indeed, polite progressive society is even now engaged in the project of propping up Black Lives Matter — of spoon-feeding its activists opportunities to declare that they reject violence in all its forms even as their protests continue to be marked by violence and calls for violence. Anything good and peaceful? That’s Black Lives Matter. Anything violent or destructive? That’s not, even when it’s perpetrated at Black Lives Matter rallies, by people professing the same ideals as Black Lives Matter. Worse yet, there’s a subset of radicals that refuses to completely disavow violence even when given the opportunity. The trick is to find a way to use the violence without exactly condoning it. How can one condemn it and exploit it?
When one teenager in Arlington, Texas, was caught smoking weed earlier this week, he received a punishment he probably wasn’t expecting from the police officer who approached him.
Rather than arresting the teen and sending him downtown, the officer decided to allow him to do push-ups instead of jail time, according to a video uploaded to Facebook by Raiza Paredez.
The young man was caught by the officer in an Arlington movie theater parking lot.
“Big UP’s to the Arlington Police Officer that made the young black guy that decided to smoke weed on the movie theater parking lot to do push-ups then take him to jail or shoot him just Cuz,” Paradez wrote. “We need more cops like this.”
Paredez told the officer she was going to show the video to her own son as a reminder to “think twice,” should he ever consider smoking marijuana.
At press time, Paredez’s video had close to 2,000 likes and had been shared more than 1,500 times.

Fiery wreck in East Texas city- Tyler police have released dashcam video of a driver being rescued from a fiery wreck on Christmas Day. Dashcam video shows police rescuing the driver, who was trapped inside his pickup after his vehicle collided with an 18-wheeler. When the first officers arrived they found that the pickup was stuck underneath the eighteen-wheeler and was on fire. The driver of the pickup was unresponsive and pinned in the vehicle. Officers battled the fire with handheld fire extinguishers and were able to keep it under control long enough to remove the driver of the pickup from the burning vehicle. ETMC EMS and Tyler Fire Department personnel arrived on scene and provided medical attention to the driver, along with fire control. The pickup truck driver, Darrus Evans, 46-year-old male from Tyler, was transported to ETMC with significant injuries and is currently considered in serious condition. The eighteen-wheeler driver was not injured. The accident was found to be the result of a non-contact vehicle pulling out in front of the semi and causing the driver to take evasive action. This put him into the path of the pickup truck, which was unable to avoid a collision. The non-contact vehicle did not stay on scene and is currently unknown.
Police save woman from jumping off bridge in east China
NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. -- The fight was on when two Pasco County deputies tried to take 21-year-old Sherif Elganainy into custody for marijuana found in his room.
"He's pulling on my gun," said a deputy in the body camera video.
"He tries to grab the gun, unholster the gun of one of the deputies, they are fighting for their lives in this situation," said Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco.
Rescue units were called to Sherif's parents home on Carissa Lane Wednesday morning.
"The mother smells some chemicals, the father starts ventilating the house, they get into a confrontation with their son, Sherif. He then pushes the father and the mother," Nocco said.
The father was taken to the hospital and deputies found some type of chemicals and marijuana in Sherif's room.
"Mom made statements to detectives that when he gets mad he says things to her like I'm a terrorist or part of ISIS," Nocco said.
At that point, the terrorist investigation was on with multiple federal agencies and the bomb squad to check out the unknown substances.
"The chemicals that we found are not precursors that would be used for narcotics. There is nothing that we found at this point that would make us believe that he is associated with a cell or anything with that nature," Nocco said.
Officers with the Department of Corrections were recently ousted from the Cheesecake Factory restaurant at the Tacoma Mall. Why? Because they were carrying their sidearms.
“They had seated us in the back area,” Miriam Nichols told KIRO Radio’s Jason Rantz. “Shortly after the rest of our party arrived, we were asked to leave because we were carrying our firearms with us. They said they did not allow firearms in their establishment.”
The group was seated in the back of the restaurant, Nichols noted. They avoided making too large of a scene as the officers showed their badges and law enforcement identification to the Cheesecake Factory managers, explaining why they — as officers — had guns on them.
“They said it didn’t matter and they asked us to leave,” Nichols said. “We left quietly and tried not to make more of a scene than it already was.”
Cheesecake Factory management was polite, she said, and weren’t trying to be rude over the situation.
“There are only so many ways to politely kick someone out of an establishment, though,” Nichols said.
“I was a little floored that it was even happening,” she said. “This wasn’t the first place that my colleagues and I have gone to lunch … having contact with clients, offenders, the general public, while on duty. This is the first time we had this reaction.”

Witnesses in downtown Grozny have captured a dramatic standoff between police and gunmen who earlier attacked an officer and stole his car. Footage captures non-stop Kalashnikov rounds in the street not far from the Chechen capital’s high-rises.
The head of Russia’s Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov, said that four gunmen were killed in the Saturday night operation, with two taken to hospital.
The attack started with the gunmen assaulting a police officer and stealing his car, after which they fruitlessly sought another police officer in his home.
The police sealed off the area for traffic, but several passers-by happened to be near the scene and filmed footage of the shootout. It shows the officers, who were reportedly fired at when attempting to pull over the suspects’ vehicle, not sparing any bullets while raining fire on the gunmen.
Luckily, no civilians were hurt in the incident, for which Kadyrov praised the prompt police response. He said only one traffic police officer, who was ran over by the gunmen’s car during the chase, was injured.

International organisations are calling for an investigation in Cameroon after four people were killed during unrest in the country’s English-speaking regions.
Tensions have been brewing for the past month in Cameroon’s two anglophone regions, where people say they are being treated as second-class citizens.
What began as protests by lawyers against the use of French in courts quickly spread to schools and universities after teachers agreed to strike over the dominance of the French language.
In Bamenda, the country’s largest anglophone city, at least four people were killed last week when security forces fired live ammunition in the air and launched teargas into a market despite no evidence that there was a protest taking place.
Amnesty International described actions as “excessive and unnecessary”, and urged the Cameroonian government to find out who was responsible.

A Shelby man was hospitalized after he was attacked by his dog on Saturday. Police shot the dog after unsuccessful attempts to subdue the dog with a Taser, according to a Shelby Police press release. Shelby Police received a call around 10:15 p.m. Saturday, where the owner reportedly was bitten by his dog, a brindle-colored Pit bull, according to the police report. Police arrived to find the dog in a back bedroom with the victim, who had suffered moderate injuries and was bleeding profusely. An officer used a Taser on the dog, allowing the owner time to break free from the canine and leave the room. The door to the room was inoperable because of a remodel, so officers were unable to contain the dog, which began to charge for the door. While officers John Reed and Cody Baker stood between the victim and the dog, Baker officers fired two rounds from his pistol, striking the dog.
The woman who called police told officers she and the victim were arguing and the argument prompted the dog's attack. She said the dog had not behaved this was in the past. The Owner was taken to OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital for treatment, followed by surgery at a Columbus hospital. "It appears based on a review of the incident and the officer's reports that the shooting was a necessity," police chief Lance Combs said in a Sunday news release. "Officers Reed and Baker did a phenomenal job of working together reacting quickly, protecting the residents and neutralizing the threat. Shelby Fire and Community EMS are to be commended for such a quick response."
