New Orleans Cop Shoots Man in Head and Doesn’t Report it

The shooting and killing of young black men by police officers seems to have now become a sport.

According to one report, a black man was shot in the head during a routine traffic stop in Algiers, and the New Orleans Police Department didn’t even report it. Bossip reports via NOLA News the incident might have remained undercover still had it not been for an article published on their news site. It is in response to that article, that NOPD finally issued a written statement saying that Armand Bennett, 26, “was shot” during the traffic stop, and an officer, unnamed by the department, suffered a minor contusion on the right hand.

Bennett, whose injuries is said to be “not life threatening” is still recovering in an intensive care unit, said attorney Nandi Campbell, who visited him in the hospital.

Campbell said that the man’s brother heard two shots fired by a female officer, and that the two of them were confronted by officers with their guns drawn while parked near the Tall Timbers subdivision, where one of the men resides.

There are few details about what actually prompted the confrontation; although the NOPD did reveal on Monday that an officer was wounded on the job, in what the department described as an “officer needs assistance” call. Despite receiving requests for information and records, the police department did not disclose that anyone was shot, nor did they respond to submissions for public records requests by | The Times-Picayune.

By Wednesday, the department had not provided the report. The NOPD only confirmed the shooting after this story was published.

The NOPD did say that once Bennett is released from the hospital, he will be booked on five outstanding warrants from Orleans and Jefferson parishes, including possession of marijuana, illegal possession of a weapon, resisting an officer and criminal damage to property.

Wow is it ever going to end! These cops are out of control. What do they think that they don’t have any consequence for their action…that they are above the law? Something really needs to be done about all of this police brutality and flat out murder. They are supposed to serve and protect not murder our community.

Woman Shoots Grandson; Thought He Was An Intruder

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A grandmother shot and critically wounded her 7-year-old grandson early Tuesday after mistaking him for an intruder who had broken into her home, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said.

Linda Maddox, 63, and her twin grandsons were sleeping in a bedroom at about 1 a.m. after her son, who is the boy’s father, had left for work at the postal service, deputies said. Maddox told deputies she had placed a chair against the bedroom door handle for extra protection while they slept.

When she heard the chair sliding against the wood floor, she assumed it was an intruder and grabbed a loaded .22-caliber revolver she keeps by the bed and fired one shot in the dark toward the door.

Deputies say seconds later she heard her grandson Tyler Maddox scream. He was shot once in the upper body. He was taken to a hospital, where he was listed in critical condition.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Cristal Bermudez Nunez said Maddox felt unsafe when her son would work overnight, so she would bring her grandchildren into the bedroom with her and block the door with a leaning chair. She said deputies have been called to the house 12 times since 2011, including a call about a suspicious person on June 20, 2011, and a suspicious vehicle last Jan. 2. None of those calls turned into anything significant, she said.

Neighbor Jonathan Aristizabal, 18, said he has lived in the middle-class community for six months and hasn’t noticed anything that would make him think the area is unsafe. He said he often saw the kids playing in the front yard.

“It’s a big tragedy,” he said. “They’re a really good family.”

Now you talk about tragic. This poor woman! I can only imagine what she is going through knowing that she cause this kind of harm to her grandchild. This story is just disheartening.This is just a lesson for everyone to learn to me more careful with fire arms. What a tragedy!

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Singer Ray J has pleaded not guilty to groping a woman at a Beverly Hills hotel bar and resisting arrest afterward.

Los Angeles County prosecutors say Ray J — whose legal name is William Ray Norwood — entered the plea Tuesday to misdemeanor charges of sexual battery, vandalism, battery on a police officer and resisting a peace officer.

He’s scheduled to return to court for a preliminary hearing Aug. 28.

I can’t believe the whole story get told when these celebrities get accused of doing  stuff like that. I guess we will soon see what’s really the truth.
