WATCH: “I Don’t Want The Sheriff at My Funeral,” Hot Mic From Cop on Night of Vegas Shooting

Published

on

It has been nine months since the Las Vegas shooting, the deadliest mass shooting in modern day U.S. history, and the public has yet to receive an answer as to why Stephen Paddock allegedly massacred 58 people from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Despite being the worst mass shooting in US history, the Las Vegas Metropolitan police Department (LVMPD) under Sheriff Joe Lombardo, along with the FBI Las Vegas has shown an extreme lack of transparency and incompetence with regards to the Las Vegas shooting. It has been nine months since the Las Vegas shooting, and the public has still not been given a motive, even as authorities are slowly releasing audio and video in disorganized, but scheduled Wednesday court ordered releases.

There have been a total of 12 document & video dumps since a Las Vegas judge issued a court order, ordering LVMPD to release footage and other information from the night of the shooting.

In the 11th batch of videos that were released on July 18th, 2018, an LVMPD officer who responded to the scene of the shooting can be heard telling other LVMPD officers, “”I’m worth more dead than I am alive. I’m worth $1MILLION dead. Like I said, I don’t want the Sheriff at my funeral.”

The hot mic moment of the LVMPD officer (which he probably never thought would be released to the public) further demonstrates the lack of support for Sheriff Lombardo in Las Vegas, even among his own officers, who don’t want the disgraced Sheriff to be present for their funerals if they die on duty.

In April, an official vote that was conducted among rank and file officers within LVMPD determined that Sheriff Lombardo would not be endorsed for re-election by the Las Vegas Police Association. 82% of LVMPD officers rejected Lombardo for another term as Sheriff, which confirmed the overwhelming disproval rate of Lombardo within his own department.

Although Lombardo secured a second term as Sheriff in June, his inability to secure an endorsement from Las Vegas police officers, along with this newly released police body camera footage reveals a strong contempt for the sitting Sheriff among Las Vegas law enforcement. The contempt for Lombardo that has been expressed by LVMPD officers is shared by both local Las Vegas residents and concerned Americans who are less than satisfied with Lombardo’s performance.

Sheriff Lombardo’s poor handling of the Oct. 1 Las Vegas shooting has made him a figure of national scrutiny and arguably one of America’s most hated Sheriffs. Lombardo’s lack of transparency concerning the Las Vegas shooting, his fabrication of the official shooting timeline, along with his disregard for freedom of the press has caused extensive damage to LVMPD’s reputation.

During his first term as Clark County Sheriff, Lombardo was clouded in controversy and scandal due to his poor handling of high profile cases such as the Cliven Bundy arrest, the Las Vegas shooting, and most recently, his attempted cover-up of a string of MS-13 gang killings by illegal immigrants in Las Vegas.

Mom Drowns Her Five Kids in India’s Ganga River After Altercation with Husband

Published

on

A mother of five reportedly threw her children into the Ganga river in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh’s Bhadohi district early Sunday morning after an alleged altercation with her husband. The youngest child was a three-year-old boy.

The Ganga river is deep. The woman has been identified as Manju. Her children are aged 12, 10, 8, 6 and 3.

The media initially speculated that food scarcity in the subcontinent due to the coronavirus lockdown had been the driving force behind her extreme behavior. However, in a video interview with police, it was later clarified that the COVID-19 lockdown was not the cause of the drownings.

India’s NDTV reported that a police officer said: “a search for the children is on.” The officer added, “Our priority is to rescue the children as soon as possible, We will carry out other investigations later.” However, according to a local publication, the Hindustan Times, the children are believed to be dead.

According to Asian News International (ANI), the woman confessed to committing the crime and told police, “I pushed my 5 children into the Ganga river after a fight with my husband. He always beats me.”

Here is a transcript from a video posted to Twitter by the Bhadohi Police in which an officer is questioning Manju, who appears to be startled (video has been translated from Hindi to English):

Officer: Speak loudly.

Manju: I put them in the water.

Officer: Why did you do this?

Manju: Tension in my mind.

Officer: What kind of stress? Family, food, etc.?

Manju: I had some arguments and fights that caused stress.

Officer: With whom did you fight?

Manju: With my husband.

Officer: What was the issue?

Manju: He used to fight with and beat me.

Officer: How many kids do you have?

Manju: Two boys and three girls.

Officer: What time did you bring the kids to the River Ganga?

Manju: I did not see the time.

According to the Superintendent of Bhadohi Police Ram Badan Singh, reports that Manju had jumped into the water after her she threw her kids in were false. Locals who were working in fields nearby who saw the incident and heard the children’s cries reportedly rushed to try and rescue the youth, but did not succeed.

Manju is reportedly a daily wage earner and while she cited a domestic incident as triggering her behavior, countless other daily wage and migrant workers in India have been placed under tremendous financial and emotional strain over the global COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown.

On April 15, India’s government imposed a mandatory 21-day national lockdown. Based on the World Bank’s poverty line of $3.2 per day income for a country like India, it is likely that the bottom 50 percentile of the subcontinent’s population will run out of cash.

According to a survey by a Jan Sahas, a civil society-focused nonprofit in India, at least 93% of day laborers have so far lost their one to three weeks of livelihood amid the lockdown, with over 80% of the country’s migrant and daily-wage population facing the prospect of starvation before the lockdown comes to an end.
