Passerbys stood by and laughed.

A Robeson County, North Carolina police officer had to be airlifted to a hospital after being brutally beaten in an altercation with a criminal suspect that lasted for eleven minutes. The lengthy struggle was captured on camera by a man who refused to assist the officer in the apprehension of the suspect, instead opting to laugh, taunt and cheer on the vicious beating as he filmed it.

27-year old Officer Michael Sale of the Rowland Police Department was airlifted to a hospital after reportedly suffering fractured bones in the face during a lengthy 11-minute struggle. Sale was supposedly responding to a report of a disturbance of the peace when he encountered Jamel Alphonso Rogers. When Sale attempted to detain Rogers, the two men began a fight that would continue for more than ten minutes.

Officer Sale asks the man filming the brutal struggle to intervene, but he doesn’t expressing his disdain for police and at times even cheering on the thug brutally beating the police officer.

Officer Sale was apparently the only police officer on duty in his rural community during the altercation, preventing him from calling for backup during the struggle.

Most shockingly, the officer lost possession of his firearm at one point in the fight, placing himself in serious danger with the thug attacking him.

Rogers was eventually subdued and detained, and he’s facing some serious criminal charges as a result of his fight with the police. He’s being charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intentions to kill while inflicting serious injuries, kidnapping and two counts of resisting a public officer.

Fortunately, Rowland Police Chief Hubert B. Graham is describing the video footage as evidence for criminal proceedings against Rogers. Hubert describes himself as “thankful for the video because it pretty much proves my case for my officer.

Welcome to a low-trust society, in which significant segments of the public trusts in no authority and views itself as above the law.

Crime Watch: Robberies and Rapes Way Down, Homicides Way Up Across US

Some police departments are blaming the increase on the unintended consequences of coronavirus restrictions and the summer’s mass riots.

According to statistics compiled from 223 police agencies, homicides across the United States have risen more than 28 percent and aggravated assaults around nine percent in the first nine months of 2020.

A Washington Post article details some of the cities where homicides have risen dramatically since this time last year. For example, Boston’s homicide rate has increased by 52 percent and Fort Worth’s by 66 percent. Interestingly enough, the cities that experienced some of the worst summer rioting have seen homicides skyrocket the most: Minneapolis (85 percent increase), Louisville (79 percent increase), Portland (68 percent increase), and Milwaukee (110 percent increase).

Overall, 70 percent of the large cities surveyed saw an increase in homicides, 21 percent a decrease, and nine percent no change.

There are several factors that could account for this, such as the coronavirus lockdowns and restrictions, the mass riots over “police brutality” and “systemic racism,” law enforcement budget cuts, and criminal justice reform.

In Houston, a city that did not see the levels of summer chaos that other cities saw, homicides are up 35 percent, and Houston Police Department Assistant Chief Heather Morris is partly blaming bail reform.

“We had 28 suspects last year who were on bond or parole when they committed a murder,” Morris said, “and this year we’ve had 44. The person who killed one of our officers a week ago was out on $100 bond for unlawfully possessing a weapon. […] Bond reform in some cases is needed, but you have people who allegedly committed violent crimes getting out on bond when they haven’t in the past.”

Chuck Wexler, Executive Director of the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF), said of the nationwide spikes: “We haven’t seen numbers like this since the ’90s. We’ve had 20 years of steady declines in crime. Is this just an aberration, or does this portend something for the future? This has been under the radar because of the pandemic, but something’s happening across the country in the most serious crimes. The next administration, they’re going to have to pay serious attention to this.”

Despite these troubling numbers in homicide rates, rapes and robberies are significantly down compared to last year. 73 percent of large cities reported decreases in robberies and 86 percent in rapes. This may be due to the coronavirus pandemic as well, since people are not out and about at the same level as last year.
