Video Shows Man Attacking Deputy Before Being Fatally Shot By Police

On Friday, police in Broward County, Florida released footage of intense, violent moments that lead up to a fatal police shooting. In the video, 42-year-old Jean Pedro Pierre can be seen kicking, and even dragging, Deputy Sean Youngward outside a condominium.  

The officer was responding to a disturbance at the residential building when the violence broke out. Pierre can be seen dragging Youngward by his leg, while Youngward calls for backup.

The deputy tried to subdue the suspect by tasing him, but the attempt was in vain. Then, another deputy, Steven Briggs, shows up on the scene to help.

“Tase him, tase him; don’t shoot him,” a concerned citizen yelled at Briggs. Just like Youngward, Briggs was unsuccessful in his tasing attempt.

“Let it go, bro. They’re gonna shoot you, man,” a bystander yells at Pierre, who responded by letting go of Youngward only to charge at Briggs.

Pierre was then shot three times,

Scott And Laci Peterson’s Romance Before He Murdered Her When She Was 8-Months Pregnant

Laci and Scott Peterson seemed like a picture-perfect couple. In 2003, the Modesto, California couple became household names when the pregnant 27-year-old disappeared. Her body was found washed up on the beach. Scott became a suspect and was eventually convicted of first-and second-degree murders of his wife and unborn son.

But who were Laci and Scott before the crime? As In Touch Weekly shares, the two met as college students while they were attending California Polytechnic State University. She as an ornamental horticulture major and he was studying agricultural business. They initially met at a party but ended up bumping into each other at  Pacific Café in Morro Bay, a restaurant where Scott was working. It was Laci who made the first romantic move by giving him her phone number. He then called to ask her out.

The first few dates didn’t go all that great. She was interested in many of his hobbies, like

Baltimore Cop Killed With Own Gun One Day Before He Was Set To Testify Against Indicted Officers

Detective Sean Suiter was scheduled to testify in the case of a squad of indicted officers accused of harassing citizens and drug dealing conspiracies, but was killed with his own gun after a struggle with a criminal a day before his appearance in court. According to The Baltimore Sun, the death of Suiter has complicated the case.

The eight officers indicted were involved in a task force that (supposedly) aimed to get illegal guns off the streets. Four officers have pleaded guilty to a plethora of charges including racketeering, four have pleaded not guilty. It is unclear whether Suiter planned to testify in favor of or against the officers. Suiter had previously worked with many of the officers involved in the widespread insvestigation.

Federal authorities maintain that Suiter’s death is unrelated to the testimony he was set to deliver and that he is in no way implicated in the conspiracies of

Trio Dresses Up Overdosing Friend In Sunglasses Before Strangling …

Three people from Pennsylvania are accused of heartlessly strangling a 21-year-old man who was overdosing on heroin before dressing him up with a hat and sunglasses and dumping his body in the woods.

Joshua Rose, 21, died in August. First, he overdosed at a home in Scranton. Preston Layfield, 19, Tyler Mirabelli, 22, and Amanda Wayda, 20, allegedly dressed him up so that he looked alive before putting him in a car, according to WNEP-TV. Then, they all took a drive. They even stopped for gas.  

“Bottom line, they drove right past a hospital and continued north on I-81,” Pennsylvania State Police Corporal Mark Prushinski said. “At this time, we are not sure why they did that.”

Instead of seeking out medical attention, the trio allegedly put a plastic bag over Rose’s head, strangling him with a pair of jumper cables.

“Wayda said that she knew Rose was alive prior to the

Trio Allegedly Used Stun Gun And Drugged Special Needs Girl Before She Died

A group of three people are facing charges after a 14-year-old special-needs girl died in October 2016 in Montgomery, Alabama. According to Chron, 43-year-old Tommieretta Gunner and 28-year-old Marreissa Jones were charged with a first-degree felony injury to a child charge. The girl’s father, 42-year-old Anthony Maurice Jackson is facing a third-degree felony injury to a child charge.

Authorities allege that Gunner and Jones, who are her caretakers, drugged the teen with two different high blood pressure medications over a three-week period at her home during the fall of 2016. The girl was required to take daily doses of antipsychotic medication and sedatives to treat her medical issues but not the blood pressure medications. Jackson is also accused of shocking his daughter with a stun gun seven times and threatening her at least 15 other times prior to her death.

Surveillance video in the home captured the girl’s behavioral changes when given the

Police Knew ‘Madman’ Had Illegal Guns Before Shooting Spree In California

New details are emerging about Tuesday’s deadly shooting rampage in and near rural Rancho Tehama Reserve that killed six people (including the gunman, 44-year-old Kevin Janson Neal) and wounded at least 10. 

At a Wednesday press conference, described as tense by The Associated Press, police defended their decision not to arrest Neal for violating a court order that banned him from having guns. Neighbors had previously complained about Neal repeatedly firing off hundreds of rounds from his home. Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said that police responded to neighbors’ calls on numerous occasions. However, Johnston said that Neal wouldn’t open the door, so the police just left.

“He was not law enforcement friendly. He would not come to the door,” Johnston said. “You have to understand we can’t anticipate what people are going to do. We don’t have a crystal ball.”

Johnston also told reporters the shooter illegally manufactured the guns he used

Roy Moore Was Banned From Mall For Soliciting Children Long Before Scandal Became Public

After the Washington Post broke a story on the alleged sexual misconduct of far-right Alabama politician Roy Moore, many locals began looking back at incriminating incidents that support the stories of the victims who claim that he courted them when they were children. Now, as a fifth accuser comes forward with even more allegations against Moore, Alabamans recall that Moore had allegedly been banned from The Gadsden Mall for attempting to solicit sex from teenagers.

Yesterday, a fifth accuser said that Moore had acted sexually inappropriate with her. According to the New York Times, Beverly Young Nelson discussed Moore’s attack on her at a press conference. She also detailed the ways he used his position as a prosecutor in Etowah County to intimidate her into silence.

“I tried fighting him off, while yelling at him to stop, but instead of stopping, he began squeezing my neck, attempting to force my

Parents Of Starved Teen Found In Diaper Took Out Life Insurance Policies Before Her Death

More unsettling details are emerging in the case of Natalie Finn, a teenager who died last October after allegedly being starved and abused. Her adoptive parents, who have been charged in Finn’s death, took out two life insurance policies on the girl before she died in their Des Moines, Iowa home, according to the Des Moines Register.

One Hartford Life Insurance policy carried a $10,000 benefit, according to a court filing. Another policy from Modern Woodmen of America carried a $25,000 benefit, according to USA Today.

A court petition filed this month reveals that Natalie’s adoptive father, 46-year-old Joseph M. Finn II, called about the $25,000 policy just one day after Natalie died in October 2016. Natalie’s adoptive brother, Alexander Finn, also called about the policy. The sibling has not been charged with anything.
