Tow Truck Driver Helps Stabbed Police Officer Make Arrest

Published

on

A tow truck driver in California was driving by a routine traffic stop when he noticed something didn’t seem right.

Christian Melendrez was driving in his tow truck down I-5, when he saw an officer had pulled over a car. Thankfully, he was keeping an eye on the situation as he drove by. Melendrez saw two bodies on the ground and knew he had to pull over and help.

“Think about it, I’m 70 mph when I passed by. It was quick. I saw two bodies on the ground wrestling and I thought, ‘Oh, shoot, it’s probably the officer,” Melendrez said according to WQAD.

Patrol Officer Philip Martinson was in the process of pulling over a 25 year-old woman named Haile Neil who was inebriated, going over 100mph on the interstate. After being pulled over, their encounter turned violent. In the midst of Officer Martinson performing the DUI inspection, Neil attempted to run away, but not before stabbing Officer Martinson in the back.

Melendrez arrived just in the nick of time. Seeing the two fighting, he ran over to help the officer. Melendrez was able to get Neil in handcuffs with the help of Officer Martinson.

“First time I ever put handcuffs on anybody. So, that worked out pretty well. I was like, ‘How do I put this on?’ And he was like, ‘Just swing it on.’ So I swung it on there and it worked,” Melendrez explained.

Melendrez explained his reasoning in stopping to check out the situation, “I wanted to help. That’s what I do all the time with everybody and anybody.”

The encounter has encouraged Melendrez to eventually leave his job in the tow trucking business and pursue a career in law enforcement.

“Like I said, I would go and help again. My first instinct is to help people.”

San Francisco Dumps Environmentalism, Bans Reusable Bags at Grocery Stores During Coronavirus Pandemic

Environmentalism is thrown by the wayside during a crisis.

Published

The ultra left-wing city of San Francisco, Calif. is bailing on environmentalism during a time of great crisis, banning the use of reusable plastic bags at grocery stores temporarily due to concerns regarding the spread of coronavirus.

The San Francisco Department of Public Health has issued an ordinance preventing city residents from taking reusable items into the public and using them in essential stores. They believe this will make it more difficult for germs to proliferate throughout the city.

“There is no effective treatment or cure yet for the disease, testing ability while improving remains constrained, and San Francisco’s health care system is at ongoing risk of being overwhelmed. For these reasons, it is imperative that San Francisco not only extend the duration of its stay at home order but also further limit essential activities and extend social distancing requirements outside the home,” the ordinance reads.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed has not hesitated to shut down civil society in order to combat the spread of coronavirus. She has effectively tossed environmentalism to the wayside, showing that the frequent leftist bugaboo is not actually a pressing concern.

“I can’t reiterate enough how important it is for all of us to continue to comply, for all of us to continue to be good citizens, to cooperate,” said Breed, who has issued lockdown edicts that last until at least May 3.

In 2007, San Francisco was the first city in America to ban the use of plastic shopping bags. The leftists on the Board of Supervisors enacted this prohibition to satisfy Mother Earth and potentially start a trend throughout the country.

“I am astounded and surprised by the worldwide attention,” Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi said at the time, according to the SFGate. “Hopefully, other cities and other states will follow suit.”

The grocery store lobby in the state came out against the regulation at the time, believing that it would accomplish little to help the environment and only serve to frustrate consumers.

“We’re disappointed that the Board of Supervisors is going down this path,” said Kristin Power, who worked as the vice president of government relations for the California Grocers Association.

“It will frustrate recycling efforts and will increase both consumer and retailer costs. There’s also a real concern about the availability and quality of compostable bags,” she added.

By instituting their emergency measures, San Francisco has demonstrated that environmental concerns are not particularly important in the grand scheme of things. These lofty goals are put on the back burner when a real crisis, such as the coronavirus panic, takes precedence.
