 Officer Ian Lawler was conducting a traffic stop when Ryan Keith Bolinger, 28, pulled up next to the police vehicle, reportedly so close that the officer could not get out of his vehicle. Bolinger then got out of his vehicle and began dancing in the street erratically.

“It’s been described as almost dancing in the street or making unusual movements in the street,” Sgt. Jason Halifax told reporters. “I don’t want it to be construed that he’s doing a waltz in the middle of Merle Hay Road…. He’s outside of his vehicle. He’s not making a directed motion.”

“It’s odd, erratic behavior which begins by parking very close to the squad car that’s already on a traffic stop and getting out of your vehicle to do whatever he was doing in the street.”

Bolinger then returned to his vehicle and lead Lawler on a low speed chase, topping out at around 35 miles per hour.  Lawler was assisted by Officer Vanessa Miller. Lawler stated over his radio that the driver might may be “10-96,” police code for mentally ill, or “10-55,” a drunk driver, the Des Moines Register reported.

About a mile away from the original stop, Bolinger reportedly did a u-turn and stopped his vehicle abruptly. Lawler pulled in front of Bolinger to prevent him from moving any further, and Miller stopped behind Bolinger’s vehicle.

When Bolinger exited his car and began to walk towards Officer Miller’s vehicle, she shot him through her window, which shattered.  Bolinger was pronounced dead at the scene.  

No weapons were found on his body and he had no criminal record.

The incident has prompted the federal government to order a security review at all 139 shelters across the country that house illegal immigrant minors, MailOnline can exclusively reveal.

The boys, age 16 and 17, were able to walk away unchallenged from Maryville Academy in Des Plaines, Illinois, outside Chicago, on Wednesday morning and carjack two victims before they were arrested more than 225 miles away outside Iowa City, Iowa, according to authorities.

Police say they targeted an elderly man in Moline, Illinois, who was picking up his prescription at Walmart. 

They threatened him with violence, forced him out of his car and then sped off with his Buick LeSabre.

` Severe Weather and Baseball Sized Hail Stones Hit Nebraska ‘

#AceWorldNewsUNITED STATES – June 04  – Strong winds and baseball-sized hail caused widespread damage north of Omaha, Nebraska, and Washington County, Reuters reported, citing officials.

The severe weather halted flights at Omaha’s Eppley Airfield for hours, and heavy rain caused flash flooding that closed area streets.

At least eight unconfirmed tornado touch-downs were reported in Nebraska, one in Iowa and another in Wyoming, the National Weather Service said. Hail, ranging from golf ball- to tennis ball-sized, also reportedly pelted parts of Wyoming, the northern half of Nebraska and the south-western corners of South Dakota and Iowa.

A dozen people suffered minor injuries after being struck by the outsized hailstones while fleeing for cover at a Walmart in Blair, Nebraska, north of Omaha, Fire Chief Kent Nicholson said.

 “It sounded like someone was drilling our building with a hammer. It was deafening in our shop area,” said Nicholson, who was at work during the storm.

Eppley Airfield spokesman Joe Rotterdam said flights were halted for four hours on Tuesday at the Omaha airport. Thirty-three flight were canceled Tuesday due to flash flooding, gusting wind and nickel to quarter-sized hail, he said.

 Storm chasers reported at least eight unconfirmed tornado touch-downs in Nebraska, one in Iowa and another in Wyoming, the National Weather Service said.

Hail, ranging from golf ball to tennis ball size, also pelted parts of Wyoming, the northern half of Nebraska and the southwestern corners of South Dakota and Iowa, the National Weather Service said.

#AceWorldNews DES MOINES IOWA April 12 State workers…

#AceWorldNews – DES MOINES – IOWA – April 12 – State workers can wear pins that reflect unfavourably on Iowa’s governor, an administrative law judge has ruled.

The pins, distributed by a union that says it represents 40,000 public employees in Iowa, shows an unflattering black and white photograph of Gov. Terry Branstad’s face bisected by a red diagonal slash with the words, “NOTHING HAS CHANGED.”

The Branstad administration tried to ban the pins after employees at the state Department of Corrections’ Medical and Classification Center in Coralville, Iowa, wore them on the job.

But administrative law judge Jan Berry ruled March 31 that workers could display the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees pins on their uniforms or clothes.

Administration officials said late Friday that they consider the pins to be disparaging and may appeal the decision.
