More and more craziness.Less than three hours before the shooting, a man had been injured in a daylight stabbing in the center of Dordrecht, and the perpetrator arrested. On the other side of Rotterdam earlier Monday morning, a quarrel at a metro station turned fatal, when a passenger stabbed another rider to death over an argument about who would enter the train first, according to local media.

Roberts came from a political family: she was the daughter of (Thomas) Hale Boggs, the former Democratic House majority leader and representative from New Orleans. Her father was also a member of the Warren commission that investigated the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
Hale Boggs died in a plane crash in Alaska in 1972, and his wife – Roberts’ mother – Lindy Boggs was elected to fill her late husband’s congressional seat.
Lindy Boggs was later appointed to be the U.S. ambassador to the Holy See by then-President Bill Clinton in 1997.
Cokie’s career as a journalist at National Public Radio and ABC News took her to the heights of her profession, and her success as an author on history and family put her on the best seller list.
Ten Dead in China as Truck Loses Control, Hits CrowdTen dead in China as truck loses control and hits crowd
Ten people died and another 16 were injured after a truck lost control and hit a crowd of people at a traditional market in southern China on Sunday, police said.
PEACE stands for Police Exercising Absolute Care with Everyone. Rep. Clay said that, “our new legislation would prohibit the use of deadly force by federal law enforcement unless no other reasonable alternative exists.“It is past time to end a legal standard for use of force that permits Americans to be killed as a first resort – rather than only when absolutely necessary – and with little accountability,” Rep. Ro Khanna (D-California), co-author of the bill said in press release on Wednesday.
Now it’s being called an “insult to law enforcement” for the standards that it sets.“This disproportionately impacts African Americans, who make up only 13 percent of the U.S. population but account for 25 percent of those Americans tragically shot and killed by police each year,” he continued.
“Immediately resorting to lethal force rather than using proven de-escalation tactics increases risks for both citizens and police officers. We have to do more than change the rhetoric: we have to change the laws.”
Wosme dropped some knowledge about police and deadly force in his statement this week.“The legislation introduced by Representatives Lacy Clay and Ro Khanna is an insult to law enforcement that will inhibit their ability to maintain the peace rather than protect it, as the name suggests,” Cosme said. “The PEACE Act itself, as well as the rhetoric surrounding its introduction, imply that federal law enforcement use deadly force as a first resort.”
Cosme went on to say that these representatives have absolutely no idea how quickly a situation can escalate from something that seems peaceful to a moment when an officer may be fighting to save their own life or the lives of bystanders.“This is outrageous considering that in 2017 an estimated 1,247,321 violent crimes were reported, 987 of these cases involved lethal use of force by police. Of these, 95 percent of individuals were armed. Law enforcement officers use force when necessary to protect the public and themselves and discouraging them from doing so is dangerous,” he said.
Now let’s look at the Dayton mass shooting that occurred just last month and how the quick response of law enforcement confronted the shooter and ended the mayhem just moments after it began.“Furthermore, the proposed legislation seems ignorant of the reality of the situation in which force is necessary,” Cosme continued. “Situations escalate in seconds and law enforcement are often called to the scene of already volatile situations. Under this legislation, law enforcement must take the time to conclude the age, language, physical and mental condition of an active threat before even issuing conditional warnings to the individual.”
To finish off his argument, Cosme reiterated to the two representatives that national standards already exist in order to keep officers from using deadly force when it was not justified.“If these conditions were used in the Dayton, Ohio or other mass shootings these incidents may have been exacerbated by a delayed law enforcement response due to parameters outlined in this politically motivated legislation,” Cosme said.
It calls for peace… but it might actually put the lives of more Americans – especially police officers – in serious danger.”This legislation also neglects established precedent and policy on use of force which officers and agents dutifully follow in nearly every situation. Graham v. Connor, a unanimous Supreme Court decision, held that an objective reasonableness standard should be applied when determining the proper level of force. Additionally, the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s official policy regarding use of force already requires agents only use deadly force when necessary to protect against the imminent threat of death of serious bodily injury. All agencies have similar policies tailored to their mission,” he said.
