Local cops assist with LA unrest

Posted by on in Terrorism
Simi Valley Acorn Local cops assist with LA unrest By Daniel Wolowicz The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office and other local law agencies sent deputies and officers to Los Angeles to help respond to riots and looting over the weekend.VCSO Capt. Eric Buschow said it is part of a long-standing mutual aid agreement between first responders in California. Ventura County has been the recipient of similar aid during major emergencies, such as the Thomas, Woolsey and Hill fires, as well as the mass shooting in November 2018 at Borderline Bar and Grill.To ensure one agency doesn’t have to supply all the officers, the request is shared with the Ventura, Simi Valley, Oxnard, Santa Paula and Hueneme police departments.

Police presence deters looting, riots, destruction Boston Herald by Rich Lowry Restoring order to America’s cities isn’t a complicated proposition. All it requires is resources and determination, and a firm rejection of the longstanding progressive fallacy that an overwhelming police presence is “provocative” and “escalatory” and must be avoided.As has been established across decades of civil disturbances, it is police passivity that emboldens mobs.

Detained US Navy veteran freed by Iran, en route home By MATTHEW LEE and ERIC TUCKERAssociated Press WASHINGTON - A Navy veteran detained in Iran for nearly two years has been released and started making his way home, with the first leg on a Swiss government aircraft, U.S. officials said Thursday. “The nightmare is over,” his mother said.The U.S. special envoy for Iran, Brian Hook, flew to Zurich with a doctor to meet freed detainee Michael White and will accompany White to the United States aboard an American plane, the officials said. White’s release was part of an agreement involving an Iranian-American doctor prosecuted by the Justice Department and followed months of quiet negotiations over prisoners. The two countries are at bitter odds over U.S. penalties imposed after President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the 2015 nuclear deal and over the killing by American forces of a top Iranian...
