These 2 Freeze Frames Likely Show Why the Jury Acquitted AZ Cop Accused of Murder


Following the acquittal Thursday of Arizona police officer Philip Brailsford in the shooting death of 26-year-old Daniel Shaver, who died during an altercation at a hotel with the cops last year, some claimed that the justice system had failed to deliver justice.

Their underlying argument was that there had been no legitimate reason for Brailsford to open fire on Shaver, who reportedly died instantly. But others disagree.

Writing for the Washington Examiner, commentator Tom Rogan first brought attention to the context of the shooting, i.e., why the cops had even been on Shaver’s case to begin with.

171208ndn Paul Harvey

Vietnam War veteran Paul Harvey got several medals that were rightfully his Friday, 44 years after he completed his Army service.

During a ceremony Friday in the Cranston office of Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., the Jamestown resident was awarded a Silver Star medal, the military’s third-highest decoration for combat valor. Harvey also earned a Purple Heart medal, a Bronze Oak Leaf Cluster and other awards.

After getting out of the Army, Harvey, who is now 71 years old, was a longtime commercial fisherman aboard his boat Ingpoffer, which fished out of Narragansett Bay. He said he avoided the recognition for years, but it’s something he is proud of today.

“When I was over there (in Vietnam), I was just about to go and I went in to ask about the Silver Star and was told I could stay an extra three weeks and there would be a ceremony,” Harvey said. “I said, ‘Nah, I’ll have it follow me home,’ and when I got back I didn’t talk about it to hardly anybody.”

Pentagon To Undergo First Ever Audit After Decades Of Sloppy Accounting And Missing Trillions

After decades of waste, overpayments, trillions of missing or improperly accounted for dollars, and most recently losing track of 44,000 US soldiers, the Pentagon is about to undergo its first audit in history conducted by 2,400 auditors from independent public accounting firms to conduct reviews across the Army, Navy, Air Force and more - followed by annual audits going forward. 

Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis speaks with DoD Comptroller David L. Norquist, June 15, 2017
The announcement follows a May commitment by Pentagon comptroller David Norquist, who previously served as the CFO at the Department of Homeland Security when the agency performed its audit. "Starting an audit is a matter of driving change inside a bureaucracy that may resist it," Norquist told members of the Armed Services Committee at the time when pressed over whether or not he could get the job done at the DHS.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team is looking worse everyday. Now, it’s been revealed that his right hand man represented the person who set up Hillary Clinton’s private, unsecured email server in Clinton’s New York home and later destroyed her devices with a hammer.
According to Fox News, Aaron Zebley left his cushy job at WilmerHale to join Mueller’s investigation on alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

As it turns out, Zebley helped IT staffer Justin Cooper by representing him during the Hillary Clinton email controversy.

A Mesa police homicide detective testified Wednesday in a former police officer’s murder trial that he became suspicious of fellow officers’ omitting “vital information” from their reports of a fatal shooting of an unarmed Texas man.

Detective Paul Sipe, the lead investigator in the police shooting, was asked by Deputy Maricopa County Attorney Susie Charbel if he saw inconsistencies during his investigation of the Jan. 18, 2016, shooting of Daniel Shaver by former police Officer Philip “Mitch” Brailsford.

"All five reports omitted the same information that was vital to the case,” Sip.
