Dipshit(or pussy) of the day: Eric Sheppard

niggerA 21-year-old man seen in a video stomping on an American flag at a Georgia university has been arrested in Tampa on a weapons charge.

Eric Sheppard was arrested about 11:15 a.m. Thursday in the 2000 block of Balfour Court in Tampa. An arrest warrant had been issued for Sheppard since deputies found a gun that belonged to him in a backpack on Valdosta State University’s campus in late April.

Sheppard is known for stomping and walking on an American flag during a protest at Valdosta State in April. He had previously walked and stomped on an American flag on campus in protest.

Watch video here if you can stomach it:

The protest became a national story when video surfaced of veteran Michelle Manhart being detained after she took the flag from Sheppard.

Sheppard is being held in the Hillsborough County Jail until he has an extradition hearing. Sheppard will eventually be transported to Lowndes County for a court hearing.

Update:

Today, Mr. Eric Sheppard appeared before a Florida judge and voluntarily waived his right to an extradition hearing. Attorney Mawuli Davis of the Davis Bozeman law firm traveled from Atlanta to Tampa late last night to meet with Mr. Sheppard at the Hillsborough County Jail.

“Eric’s decision not to fight extradition coupled with his peaceful surrender when arrested, confirms Eric is not a threat to the community. Unfortunately, what appears to be lost in the coverage of Eric’s activism as a student is that he is merely a college kid trying to figure out life under some extraordinary stressful circumstances.

Physically he is fine, but mentally he is exhausted from living under the constant fear for his life as a result of the death threats and the bounty placed on his life by self-proclaimed “white supremacist” individuals and organizations. He does not wish anyone any harm and was reacting to the very aggressive and hostile threats of violence against him and the people close to him.

Here are more stories on flags in the news:

U.S. veteran not charged in American flag tussle

So lets get this shit straight, This PUSSY talks a tough game, Makes a video about how he is going to fuck up white people and cops, Gets his ass kicked by a female, And then runs like a little BITCH, And then when he is arrested he does not even put up a whimper during the arrest.

This guy really is a major fucking whimpass loudmouth. Too bad the cops did not put this turd out of his misery.

Surveillance powers to lapse at midnight without Senate action

A midnight deadline drew near for senators meeting in an extraordinary Sunday session to extend surveillance programs, but a lapse seemed unavoidable and intelligence officials worried about giving terrorists greater freedom to operate.

Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, a presidential candidate, has made clear he planned to force the expiration of the bulk collection of Americans’ telephone records. The chamber’s rules allow him to do it, at least temporarily.

Terrorists “are looking for the seams to operate within,” CIA Director John Brennan said. “This is something that we can’t afford to do right now.” He bemoaned “too much political grandstanding and crusading for ideological causes that have skewed the debate on this issue” and said the terrorism-fighting tools are important to American lives.

Minutes before the Senate began its session, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, issued a brief but strong statement warning of the impact if the parts of the Patriot Act expire.

“Al-Qaida, ISIL and other terrorists around the globe continue to plot attacks on America and our allies. Anyone who is satisfied with letting this critical intelligence capability go dark isn’t taking the terrorist threat seriously,” said Boehner, who urged the Senate to pass the House bill backed by the White House that would remake the National Security Agency’s phone collection program.

Senate backers, however, were three votes short.

Even if the legislation were to gain the needed support, in spite of opposition from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., all senators would need to agree to move to a final vote. Paul was not going along.

“I will force the expiration of the NSA illegal spy program,” Paul said in a statement Saturday. “Sometimes when the problem is big enough, you just have to start over.”

Paul cannot hold off a final vote indefinitely, just for a few days. But until the impasse was resolved, the NSA would lose legal authority to collect and search domestic phone records for connections to international terrorists — the once-secret program revealed by agency contractor Edward Snowden.

Two lesser-known Patriot Act provisions also would lapse: one, so far unused, helps track “lone wolf” terrorism suspects unconnected to a foreign power; the second allows the government to eavesdrop on suspects who continually discard their cellphones.

“The American people deserve better than this, especially when it comes to a program that is an integral part of protecting our national security,” said Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, who nonetheless predicted passage of the House plan by Wednesday.

A member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Maine independent Angus King, found it to be an “unusual position” for Paul “to be talking about essentially unilaterally disarming an important national security tool at a time when I have never seen the threat level higher.”

The White House contended that letting the surveillance powers expire would jeopardize national security.

“Heaven forbid we’ve got a problem where we could have prevented a terrorist attack or apprehended someone who is engaged in dangerous activity but we didn’t do so simply because of inaction in the Senate,” President Barack Obama said Friday.

The White House-backed USA Freedom Act would keep the programs operating, but shut down the bulk phone collection program over six months and give phone companies the job of maintaining records the government could search.

You mean they are going to have to dump all those sexting and phone sex records? Heaven forbid!

I have no problem with legitimate record keeping but they take everything to an extreme and want to keep an eye on everyone.

Now about all those license plates recordings and stingray equipment………….

Ex-police officer charged with assault

A former Livingston police sergeant has been accused of felony assault by a public officer for an incident in 2012, when he allegedly shoved a handcuffed man’s face into the ground, the Merced Sun-Star has learned.

Tyson Perry, 37, who left the Livingston Police Department last year after 11 years, pleaded not guilty to the charge during arraignment April 27 in Merced Superior Court. He is due back in court at 8:30 a.m. Thursday.

“The case is filed, it’s pending and we believe we have a good case,” said Rob Carroll, chief deputy district attorney in Merced County.

Perry is charged in Merced Superior Court with assaulting Dwight Larks, a felony, according to a copy of the criminal complaint.

There was no record of Perry being arrested or booked into jail in connection with the allegations.

Larks, a 38-year-old real estate agent, is seeking damages in a civil lawsuit against Perry and the city of Livingston. He is seeking unspecified damages related to his medical care, loss of wages and distress, as well as the “deprivation of civil rights,” according to the civil claim filed in Merced Superior Court.

Larks is the ex-boyfriend of Perry’s wife, the claim states.

Livingston police Chief Ruben Chavez declined to comment on the matter Friday, citing personnel issues.

The civil lawsuit was filed in March 2013, according to court records.

Perry, Larks and attorneys for the city of Livingston could not be reached for comment Friday.

The alleged assault happened May 21, 2012, outside Larks’ home in the 1200 block of C Street in Livingston, when Perry supervised the mother of Larks’ child during a custody exchange, according to the civil claim.

Larks claims there was a disagreement over when and where the parents were to exchange the child, and what was required under the terms of a court order. During the confrontation, according to the civil claim, Perry ordered Larks to turn around several times.

The claim says Perry used his police radio to call for another officer, Michael Baker. At that point, Larks claims, he did not put up a fight when Perry placed him in handcuffs, but said he did not understand why he was being arrested.

According to the civil claim, Larks said he was not resisting arrest but was then thrown down to the ground while handcuffed. His head, shoulder and knee struck the ground on the way down. Perry then used his hand to drive Larks’ face into the ground again, according to the claim.

The officers placed Larks in the back of a police car and took him to the Livingston police station. Larks claims Perry taunted him on several occasions during the ride and while in the police station’s parking lot.

According to the civil lawsuit, Perry was married to Larks’ one-time girlfriend. Larks claims he asked Perry if the arrest had anything to do with his connections to the officer’s wife.

Perry gave an expletive-laced response that included the words “payback” and “karma,” according to the claim.

Larks was cited for resisting arrest and violating a court order, according to Merced County booking records.

Baker, the second officer involved in the incident, is also named as a defendant in the civil lawsuit, according to court documents.

Baker left the Livingston Police Department in 2013 after nine years, according to the Livingston Human Resources Department. It was unclear if his departure was connected to the incident and subsequent lawsuit.

Ok RED flags all over this one,

1) Why was a police officer overseeing a custody exchange of kids involving his own wife?

2) Why would that same officer take the father of those kids in custody and probably in front of the kids,

3) Why didn’t the officer leave the dept. sooner than a year after the incident?

4) And why did it take 3 years to decide to file charges? Investigation that takes that long has other reasons than interest of justice involved.
