Published

The Crime Prevention Research Center reported on a case where an armed citizen and a group of colleagues came to help a wounded female police officer in Missouri.

The police officer was shot with her own gun as she was escorting an inmate to a mental health evaluation. This was the result of an ensuing struggle for the firearm.

The Missouri Highway Patrol reported that Jasmine Diab, a police officer out of Trenton, Missouri, was shot in her abdomen just after 3 p.m. on Friday, June 14, 2019. The assailant, Jamey Aaron Griffin, was charged with first-degree degree assault, armed criminal action, and unlawful use of a weapon.

However, a witness claims that a group of good Samaritans were able to intervene in the situation and save Diab’s life. One of them was armed and subdued the inmate by pointing a gun to his head.

Police conceded that the armed citizen may have saved the female police officer’s life. Diab was in critical condition the day after being shot in the abdomen.

This story did not receive much media coverage but that is to be expected from the mainstream media, which generally glosses over cases of defensive gun use and other situations where private citizens use firearms to defuse tension in a peaceful manner.

The CPRC has specialized in bringing these low coverage stories of firearms being used in self-defense.

NYC Mayor is Pushing Synagogues to Shut Down

Published

on

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio warned the Jewish community that synagogues that continue to not comply with Wuhan virus regulations by holding services will be permanently closed.

According to The Jerusalem Post, the majority of synagogues have closed in compliance with city orders aimed stopping the spread of Wuhan Virus by limiting social gatherings.

“We’ve had extraordinary, across the board rabbinical support from all the different elements of the Jewish community and the same is true of other faiths as well,” de Blasio said during his March 27, 2020 news briefing, according to The Jewish Press.

There are still some synagogues holding minyanim, social gatherings of 10 worshipers or more, to carry out prayer services.

“A small number of religious communities, specific churches and specific synagogues, are unfortunately not paying attention to this guidance even though it’s so widespread,” de Blasio stated.

“I want to say to all those who are preparing for the potential of religious services this weekend: If you go to your synagogue, if you go to your church, and attempt to hold services after having been told so often not to, our enforcement agents will have no choice but to shut down those services,” he admonished. However, he admitted that he does not “say this with joy.”

“I understand how important people’s faiths are to them, and we need our faith in this time of crisis. But we do not need gatherings that will endanger people.”

The mayor asked religious citizens who witnesses services taking place to talk with the congregation’s officials and demand they cease services. If that is not enough, the authorities may “need to take additional action up to the point of fines and potentially closing the building permanently.”
