#AceNewsReport – Oct.18: It happened around 6:20 a.m., when Fort Smith police received a 911 call about a man assaulting a person who was on the ground. The responding officer discovered Christofer Conner beating a 15-year-old boy in the face and head with a rock, said Fort Smith Police Chief Danny Baker.

Police in Fort Smith, located about 160 miles northwest of Little Rock, later determined the boy was Conner’s son.
As the officer tried to place Conner, 40, in restraints, the suspect pulled out an edged weapon and sliced the officer’s throat and neck, Baker said. The officer then fired two shots at Conner, killing him.Two people in Arkansas were found fatally stabbed and a third person was shot and killed by an officer whose neck was slashed, authorities said Sunday, Oct. 17, 2021.

The officer was rushed into emergency surgery, and was in stable condition on Sunday afternoon, Baker said. His name was not immediately released.
The boy was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He had sustained multiple stab wounds and other injuries, Baker said.
Other officers at the scene went inside a home and discovered “evidence of an extremely violent attack,” Baker said. They found the body of 42-year-old Julia Marie Moore inside the residence. Authorities believe she had been fatally stabbed.
CBS affiliate KFSM-TV reports that a 5-year-old child was also discovered safe in the home by officers. The child was removed and placed in the care of other family members, Baker said.
“I have no doubt that our officers’ swift actions saved this child’s life,” Baker said.
Police did not immediately say what the relationship was between Conner and Moore, nor did they identify the parents of the 5-year-old found in the home.
The police department asked Arkansas State Police to lead the investigation because it involved an officer shooting.
The injured officer and a second officer were placed on paid administrative leave while the investigation continues.
Baker called Sunday’s incident an “unimaginable tragedy.”
#AceHealthReport – Oct.15: My wife and I cried so much that we couldn’t sleep,” Pham Minh Hung, a 49-year-old bricklayer told the BBC: I didn’t want to believe that really happened… I couldn’t do anything to protect my kids,” he said, referring to his dogs: Their story, documented on social media app TikTok, has sparked huge backlash in Vietnam, and a petition calling for an end to the practice has gathered more than 150,000 signatures.
#CoronavirusNewsDesk says according to BBC News (Vietnam) After owners are heartbroken after 12 dogs killed after they tested positive for #COVID19 From their hospital beds, they found out 12 of their pets had been killed by authorities over fears the animals could spread the virus.
The latest wave of Covid-19 has been the worst to hit Vietnam since the start of the pandemic.
A harsh lockdown in recent months has meant many migrant workers have been unable to make a living, prompting at least a million to flee big cities.
Pham Minh Hung and Nguyen Thi Chi Em, 35, were among them.
On 8 October they embarked on an 280km (173 mile) journey along with their dogs and three relatives, who also brought three dogs and one cat.
The couple headed for Khanh Hung in Ca Mau province, the hometown of a relative, as Covid cases are not as high there.
Pham Minh HungMany online were touched by the couple’s love for their dogs
Many witnesses posted videos about the couple’s journey online, showing them on their motorbike with their dogs and belongings all piled on. The couple became popular with many social media users who cheered them on and wished them a safe journey.
Some said their hearts melted a little when the couple used raincoats to cover their dogs in the pouring rain. A few even delivered water and food to them.
The couple started out with 15 dogs, but as their trip went on, they gave two dogs to a volunteer after entering Ca Mau province, while another died. The rest continued on.
But the couple and their three relatives tested positive for Covid after reaching Khanh Hung. It is mandatory for anyone travelling across provinces to undergo testing. They were transferred to a hospital for treatment – the animals were left at a quarantine centre.
But local authorities killed their 12 dogs and their relatives’ pets without informing them, state media said. The article was later removed.
It’s unclear how the animals were killed. The official police newspaper carried an image indicating they were burned.
“Disease control must be prioritised in the first place and the decision to kill the animals immediately was a necessary preventive measure,” local official Tran Tan Cong said during a press conference on Sunday.
There was swift reaction online with many calling the decision “cruel” and “heart-breaking”.
Actress Hong Anh, a member of global animal welfare organisation Four Paws, called it “barbaric” and said she would send a petition to the organisation.
UGCThe couple are still recovering in hospital
The killings were “unethical” and “ridiculous” because there are no guidelines dictating pets must be killed if owners are infected, said Nguyen Hong Vu, a staff scientist of the City of Hope National Medical Centre in the US.
“There is no scientific evidence dogs and cats can be an intermediary for the transmission of Covid to humans. However, people with Covid can sometimes infect them,” Dr Nguyen said.
The animals were asymptomatic, or only displayed mild symptoms. They all rapidly recovered.
“There are multiple ways to make it right in this situation, such as quarantining them in a cage; contacting the owners’ relatives or engaging a social organisation to take care of them until the owners recover,” Dr Nguyen said.
Vietnam was lauded as a virus success at the start of the pandemic winning praise from the World Health Organization (WHO) with its quick response and widespread contact-tracing. But the Delta variant has brought the country to its knees.
It has reported 840,000 cases and more than 20,000 deaths in total. The majority of cases were detected during the latest wave.
Vietnam has been heavy-handed in its virus control effort – even though Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh said last month there should be a plan to “live with the virus”.
Many people have been charged and convicted for spreading the virus, with some jailed for five years.
Last month, a video showing several police officers breaking into a flat in the southern Binh Duong Province went viral. They dragged out a woman thought to have been exposed to Covid to do a test as her young son cried. It led to massive public backlash.
The authorities’ decision to cull the pets was not surprising, observer Le Anh said.
“The Vietnamese government has been putting the highest priority on the fight against the coronavirus. There is this slogan ‘Fighting this pandemic is like fighting the enemy’. It means the country is at war. You cannot expect rational and humane behaviour during a war.”
The hardest thing for Mr Pham was that he found out his beloved animals had been killed from others.
He is determined to hold authorities accountable.
“I raised my kids for about six years, I definitely want justice for my kids,” he said from the hospital.
#AceNewsReport – Oct.15: Police say they noticed he had disappeared during the morning roll call: He was being detained during police investigations into the series of child killings that shocked the nation.
#AceDailyNews says according to BBC News (Nairobi) Masten Wanjala: Kenyan child killer escapes from police custody and he was due to appear in court on Wednesday over the murders of at least 14 boys in the capital, and areas of eastern and western Kenya…..
Three police officers who were on duty at the time of his escape from Jogoo Road police station, in the Eastlands area of Nairobi, have been arrested: Authorities have launched a hunt for the man they have described as extremely dangerous.
Mr Wanjala was arrested in July and confessed to drugging and killing the young boys, as well as drinking their blood in some cases.
#AceNewsReport – Sept.20: Students and teachers barricaded themselves inside the university building; others were seen jumping from windows.
#AceDailyNewssays that a gunman has killed several people at Perm University today assailant walked on to the campus on Monday morning and started shooting according to BBC News
Police wounded and detained the attacker, who is reported to be a student.
The incident occurred at 11:00 (06:00 GMT) at Perm State University, located around 1,300 kilometres (800 miles) east of the capital, Moscow, in the Urals.
Videos circulating on social media shows students throwing belongings out of windows from buildings on campus before jumping to flee the shooter.
This piece of footage of students jumping out of windows was broadcast on Russian TV:
Some reports say the gunman had written on social media that he was acting alone and had no political or religious motives. One of the university’s professors, Ivan Pechishchev, told the BBC he saw students running from a building, and people jumping out of the second floor as he went to class. “They jumped out in some horror, screaming,” he said. “One of the students told me that it was a shooting. I heard pops, everyone began to scatter in different directions. I went to my students in the second building and continued to hear the pops.”
“According to Prof Pechishchev, there are about 10 buildings on the Perm University campus, and the security service immediately blocked all buildings and passages.Perm University posted a message on social networks urging students who were in the building to stay in the classrooms.”
“ There were about 60 people in the classroom. We closed the door and barricaded it with chairs,” one student, Semyon Karyakin, told Reuters news agency.Earlier this year, a 19-year-old gunman opened fire in his old school in the central Russian city of Kazan, killing nine people.
#AceNewsReport – Sept.01: Mr Taalay Ahmed, who studied journalism at the University of Sunderland, is survived by his wife and two children.
#AceDailyNews says that Syed Taalay Ahmed, 31, from Hartlepool, was working for Muslim Television Ahmadiyaa International (MTA) when his vehicle was ambushed on 23 August and he was shot and killed in an armed robbery …..A spokesman said Ghanaian police killed two suspects in an “encounter” while four others were arrested.
A spokesman for London-based MTA said: “He was a much loved member of the MTA team and produced a series of faith-inspiring documentaries and programmes: We will miss him every day and strive to build upon the great work he did.”
The network said the journalist was in Ghana filming a documentary that “highlighted the charity works conducted by the Ahmadiyya Muslim community”At about 19:00 local time, the car he was in was ambushed by armed robbers who opened fire, hitting Mr Taalay Ahmed and a Ghanaian colleague, before making off with some possessions and money.
He was declared dead at the Tamale Teaching Hospital a short while later and his body is due to be repatriated to the UK on Wednesday.
MTASyed Taalay Ahmed completed a masters in journalism at the University of Sunderland.
“His Holiness Pope Francis was deeply saddened to learn of the brutal attack on a group of Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus,” the Aug. 17 message said.
A road ambush along a highway in South Sudan Aug. 16 resulted in the deaths of five people, including Catholic nuns, Sr. Mary Daniel Abud and Sr. Regina Roba.
The two were among a group of nine Catholic sisters traveling in a convoy of three vehicles to Juba, the capital of South Sudan, from Assumption of Our Lady Parish in the city of Nimule, about 120 miles to the south.
#AceNewsReport – Aug.14: The co-worker dialed 911 and told dispatchers she believed Lynn had been shot: Detectives said Lynn’s toddler discovered an unlocked pistol which belonged to his father and shot his mother in the head at their home in Altamonte Springs on the outskirts of Orlando.
#AceDailyNews says a toddler has accidentally killed mother with shot to the head after finding loaded handgun after a colleague who was speaking to 21-year-old Shamaya Lynn heard a loud bang and then saw the mother fall backwards and fail to return back on the screen.
‘Officers and paramedics did their best in rendering aid to Lynn, but she was found with a fatal gunshot wound to the head,’ police said.
Another toddler was also inside the home, neither of the children were injured.
An investigation remains ongoing as to whether the owner of the firearm will face criminal charges.
‘If you own a firearm, please keep it locked and secured,’ patrol officer Roberto Ruiz Jr said. ‘Incidents like this could be avoided.’
‘You can just imagine it’s a terrible tragedy for any family to face, one that has devastated her entire family and our community,’ Ruiz told WKMG.
There were some 369 unintentional shootings by children in the States last year, including 142 fatalities, according to gun control advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety.
The latest shooting came just days after a North Carolina father was killed after his 2-year-old son accidentally shot him while he was eating dinner.
Markovia Durham, 29, and his son were visiting the apartment of the boy’s grandmother in the city of Gastonia, near Charlotte, on Sunday when the accident happened at around 8.45pm.
The boy – who has not been named by officials – picked the gun up thinking it was a toy, and shot him in the back, the grandmother Phyllis Holland told Fox 46.
Holland added that Durham recently purchased the gun.
Se said the terrified boy ran out of the apartment after it went off.
Durham was pronounced dead after emergency services arrived at Holland’s apartment complex at around 9.30pm.
The Gastonia Police Department says it is unclear if charges will be made as the investigation surrounding the boy’s involvement is still pending.
Family members have also been questioned by the Department of Social Services about the incident.
Holland said that the boy still does not fully understand the circumstances of the shooting as he continues to ask for his father.
She said: ‘He want his Dada. He’s only a 2-year-old. He doesn’t understand.’
In February, a 25-year-old mother was shot dead in North Carolina after one of her five kids found a pistol inside her purse.
And in April, a toddler in Houston discovered an unlocked gun and killed his eight-month-old baby brother.
#AceNewsReport – July.04: So far 40 wounded and injured were rescued and 17 bodies recovered. Rescue and recovery is ongoing,” Defence Minister Delfin Lorenzana said in a statement, adding that 92 people had been on board.
MANILA: Philippines Air Force plane crashes, killing at least 17 people according to Reuters the Lockheed C-130 transport aircraft crashed on Sunday at Patikul, in Sulu province, in the far south of the archipelago nation where the army has been fighting a long war against Islamist militants from the Abu Sayyaf and other factions.
Military chief Cirilito Sobejana said the plane had “missed the runway trying to regain power”.
A military spokesman, Colonel Edgard Arevalo, said there was no indication of any attack on the plane, but that a crash investigation had not begun and efforts were focused on rescue and treatment.
Pictures from the scene showed flames and smoke pouring from wreckage strewn among trees as men in combat uniform milled around.
Mr Sobejana said the plane had crashed a few kilometres from Jolo airport at 11:30am (local time).
“We are currently attending to the survivors who were immediately brought to the 11th Infantry Division station hospital in Busbus, Jolo, Sulu,” he said.
#AceNewsReport – June.23: While this city across the border from McAllen, Tx. Is used to cartel violence as a key trafficking point, the 14 victims in Saturday’s attacks appeared to be what Tamaulipas Gov. Francisco García Cabeza de Vaca called “innocent citizens” rather than members of one gang killed by a rival:
Local businessman Misael Chavarria Garza said many businesses closed early Saturday after the attacks and people were very scared as helicopters flew overhead: On Sunday, he said “the people were quiet as if nothing had happened, but with a feeling of anger because now crime has happened to innocent people.”
“It’s not fair,” said taxi driver Rene Guevara, adding that among the dead were two of his fellow taxi drivers whom he defended and said were not involved in crime.
The attacks took place in several neighborhoods in eastern Reynosa, according to the Tamaulipas state agency that coordinates security forces, and sparked a deployment of the military, National Guard and state police across the city. Images posted on social media showed bodies in the streets.
Authorities say they are investigating the attacks and haven’t provided a motive.
But the area’s criminal activity has long been dominated by the Gulf Cartel and there have been fractures within that group: Experts say there has been an internal struggle within the group since 2017 to control key territories for drug and human trafficking. Apparently, one cell from a nearby town may have entered Reynosa to carry out the attacks:
Olga Ruiz, whose 19-year-old brother Fernando Ruiz was killed by the gunmen, said her sibling was working as a plumber and bricklayer in a company owned by his stepfather to pay for his studies.
“They killed him in cold blood, he and two of his companions,” said Olga Ruiz, adding that the gunmen arrived where her brother was fixing a drain.
“They heard the gunshots from afar and my stepfather told him: ‘son, you have to take shelter.’ So he asked permission to enter a house but my brother and his companions were only about to enter when the vehicles arrived,” Ruiz said. “They stopped in front of them and started to shoot.”
On Saturday, authorities detained a person who was transporting two apparently kidnapped women in the trunk of a car.
Security is one of the great challenges facing the government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador: He has assured Mexicans that he is fighting the root causes of the violence and since the beginning of his administration in December 2018, he has advocated “hugs, not bullets” in dealing with criminals. He also says he is fighting corruption to stop the infiltration of organized crime among authorities:
But the violence continues.
“Criminal organizations must receive a clear, explicit and forceful signal from the Federal Government that there will be no room for impunity, nor tolerance for their reprehensible criminal behavior,” said García Cabeza de Vaca of the rival National Action Party. “In my government there will be no truce for the violent.”
But García Cabeza de Vaca himself is being investigated by the federal prosecutor’s office for organized crime and money laundering – accusations he says are part of plan by López Obrador’s government to attack him for being an opponent.
Tamaulipas – the state where the Zetas cartel arose and where the Gulf Cartel continues to operate – has seen several of its past governors from the Institutional Revolutionary Party accused of corruption and links to organized crime. One former governor, Tomás Yarrington, was extradited to the United States from Italy in 2018 on drug trafficking charges.
#AceNewsReport – May.24: The accident happened on a service transporting passengers from the resort town of Stresa up the nearby Mottarone mountain in the region of Piedmont.
ITALY: ‘Cable car falls leaving at least 14 dead after accident near Lake Maggiore and most of the victims died at the crash site, with the death toll steadily rising on Sunday afternoon as the wreckage was searched’ according Sky News
11 hours ago: First pictures have emerged after the cable car fell on a mountain in northern Italy
Five Israeli nationals were among the dead, Israel’s foreign ministry says.
Images from the scene show the wreckage lying in a steep wooded area.
Officials said two survivors, children aged about five and nine, were airlifted to a hospital in Turin but the older child later died.
The younger child – who is also an Israeli national – underwent surgery and is in a critical condition.
“We are devastated,” Marcella Severino, mayor of Stresa, told broadcaster RAI.
How did the crash happen?
It reportedly happened at about 12:30 local time (10:30 GMT) on Sunday.
The cause of the incident remains unclear, but local reports suggest the cable may have failed about 300m (984ft) from the top of the mountain.
The cabin fell about 20m to the ground and rolled over down the slope before being stopped by trees, Mayor Severino said.
Nearby hikers heard a loud hiss before the accident, she added.
Walter Milan, an alpine rescue spokesman, told television network RaiNews24 that the cable car was left “crumpled”.
@emergenzavvfEmergency services shared an image of the deadly crash on Sunday
Handout Via ReutersPolice were among emergency service rescuers working at the scene
Rescuers faced a crash site on steep and difficult terrain. A fire service vehicle overturned while responding but no-one was injured.
Stresa’s mayor said victims had been found both inside and outside the wreckage of the cable car.
Luisa Tesserin, a 27-year-old student from Genoa, told the AFP news agency that she and friends had been on the service about an hour before the crash happened.
“When we got on, the cable car didn’t give any strange signals, everything was fine. When they told us the news, we were shocked,” Ms Tesserin said.
Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi described the crash as a “tragic accident” and said he was receiving updates from local and national officials.
“I express the condolences of the whole government to the families of the victims, with a special thought for the seriously injured children and their families,” he said in a statement.
Infrastructure Minister Enrico Giovannini has announced an inquiry into the incident with a local prosecutor’s office also opening an investigation.
#AceNewsReport May.07: She is the 39th woman to be killed by a partner or ex-partner this year: Hundreds gathered in Mérignac near Bordeaux on Wednesday, laying flowers and paying tribute to the victim:
FRANCE: 39th Victim Killed: Calls for action on guns after woman’s street killing: ‘Chahinez, a 31-year old mother-of-three, was shot and set alight by her husband, less than a year after he was sentenced for domestic violence’
1 hour ago
“Horrified by this heinous crime, I extend my sincere support to the family of the victim,” France’s Minister for Citizenship Marlène Schiappa wrote on Twitter. “The fight against domestic violence and femicide continues.”
The French rights group, La Fondation des Femmes (the Women’s Foundation), says guns are used in a third of killings of women by current or former partners or family members.
“The law encourages police to confiscate weapons from the perpetrators of domestic violence. And for good reason: every year, a third of femicides are carried out using a firearm,” the organisation said in a statement on Wednesday, referring to the killing of a woman by a current or former partner or a family member.
But the Women’s Foundation said that its “repeated warnings” about guns in the hands of violent partners had been ignored by the interior ministry: “What we feared has therefore happened again.”
EPATributes were left outside the woman’s home
Chahinez was already separated from her husband when the attack took place on Tuesday evening.
He arrived at her home in Mérignac, close to Bordeaux in south-western France, shot her in the legs as she tried to run away and then set her on fire.
Last June the suspect had been sentenced to 18 months in prison, half of which was suspended, according to prosecutors in Bordeaux.
Under the terms of his release, he was banned from approaching his former partner or her home.
AFPLa Fondation des Femmes president Anne-Cécile Mailfert has called on the government to act
The Women’s Foundation has also raised questions about why the man was not wearing an electronic tag.
Anne-Cécile Mailfert, the organisation’s president, told France Info that only around 40 electronic bracelets had been distributed during the previous year, despite the government approving their use to prevent violent partners from breaking restraining orders.
What is France doing to address violence against women?
The issue of femicide in France came to the fore in 2019, when thousands took the streets to protest the issue of gender-based violence.
A total of 146 women were killed by their spouse or partner that year, according to France’s justice minister.
#AceNewsReport – May.02: Auwalu Daudawa was reportedly ambushed while attempting to steal a herd of cattle from an armed group in the north-western state of Zamfara:
Nigeria gang leader behind school kidnapping shot by rivals: Daudawa is said to have carried out December’s kidnapping in Katsina stateafter he was given an amnesty as part of a peace deal in February but reportedly returned to his gang earlier this week.
3 hours ago
Under the terms of February’s deal, Daudawa was pardoned in Zamfara state after he said he repented and handed over his weapons to the government.
Members of his criminal gang were promised accommodation by state Governor Bello Matawalle, along with assistance to help improve their livelihoods.
On Friday, Daudawa and four other members of his gang were fatally shot in an exchange of fire in a forest near the border with Katsina, a local official told AFP news agency.
“He led his men on a revenge mission to avenge the death of two of his men by the rival gang during a failed raid on one of his camps last month,” the official added.
The kidnapping of hundreds of schoolchildren in Katsina state in December, which was said to have been led by Daudawa’s gang, was one of a number of raids blamed on bandits looking to secure ransom payments.
The students were reunited with their families a week after they were kidnapped.
The government later insisted that no ransom was paid in that instance, but that the boys were released after negotiations with the kidnappers.
The BBC’s Africa editor, Will Ross, says news of Daudawa’s death is likely to reignite the debate on whether deals should be struck with notorious criminals.
Such gangs have made student kidnappings a lucrative business in Nigeria because of ransom payments, our correspondent adds.
Schoolchildren, along with a number of business and political figures, have been kidnapped at various times and released after a ransom was paid – although not on the scale seen in December, when more than 300 boys were abducted from their boarding school on the outskirts of Kankara town.
The Islamist militant group Boko Haram said at the time that it was behind the raid, and that it had recruited local gangs to carry out the attack.
Boko Haram has previously targeted schools because of its opposition to Western education, which it believes corrupts the values of Muslims. The group’s name loosely translates as “Western education is forbidden”.
The teenager pulled a gun from his waistband and pointed it at the officers. They yelled for him to drop the weapon, according to a police statement, but, instead, the 15-year-old stepped forward.
Just before 3:30 a.m. Saturday, someone called 911 asking police to check on a boy standing in front of Torrey Pines High School, near the northwest corner of the city. The caller referred to the teen in the third person and said the 15-year-old didn’t have a gun.
Officers saw the boy as they arrived in the school’s front parking lot, according to the statement, but the situation escalated as they got out of their cars.
The teen “pulled a handgun that was concealed in his waistband and pointed it at one of the officers,” the statement said.
Both officers pulled their guns. They shouted at the boy to drop the gun.
But he ignored their orders and started walking toward the officers while still pointing the gun.
“Fearing for their safety, both officers fired their weapons at the male, striking him numerous times,” the statement said.
The officers requested help and began performing CPR on the teen – their frantic efforts conveyed by radio traffic, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. A dispatcher acknowledged that shots were fired and asked whether any of the officers were injured. An officer responded “negative” but told dispatchers that he and the other officer were performing CPR and that paramedics were needed “now.”
But the teen’s injuries were too severe. He was pronounced dead at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla.
Police traced the original 911 call and determined that the teen was the one who had summoned officers to the school, apparently enlisting them in his suicide plot. Police recovered his weapon at the scene – and realized it was a BB gun.
San Diego police have not released the name of the teen because he is a juvenile, according to the police statement. They said he lived in the neighborhood around the school with his parents. School officials confirmed that he was a freshman at Torrey Pines High.
Police also haven’t released the names of the officers. One has been on the force for 28 years and the other for four years, according to the Union-Tribune.
One of the officers is on the department’s juvenile services team, which focuses on keeping youths out of trouble and intervening early when they come in contact with the law, the newspaper reported.
The shooting shocked the community and students at Torrey Pines High, which has an enrollment of nearly 3,000. Some students showed up on the campus Saturday morning and came across police cars and crime-scene tape, the Union-Tribune reported.
“The details of the situation are still unfolding, but whatever they are, this is very traumatic for our students, staff, families and community,” Eric Dill, superintendent of the San Dieguito Union High School District, said in a letter posted on the school’s website. “As a community, we have a shared responsibility to care for one another. Please rest assured that we will do everything possible to maintain our daily routine while supporting each other as we deal with this sad event.”
According to The Washington Post’s fatal-force database, 339 people have been killed by officers this year. Of those, nearly one in five was dealing with some type of mental illness.
Last year, 963 people were killed by police, and more than a quarter were suffering from mental illness.
Although no one keeps specific numbers on “suicides by cop,” a 2014 report by the National Sheriffs’ Association estimated that a third of police shootings fall into that category.
In such situations, officers often have little say-so in anything but the final act, while the suicidal person may have planned or even practiced the encounter.
A bulletin by the FBI concluded that for officers, suicide by cop “often is unpreventable” and “may not be unavoidable because of the nature of the plan or the point where first responders encounter the suicidal individual.”
A suicide-by-cop “attempt is close to consummation as officers are exiting their vehicles. Police are not enlisted opportunistically as means at the scene; they arrive in the midst of a planned scenario.”

#AceNewsReport – Feb.12: In the years leading up to her death Friday night, Michele Robey was no stranger to some aspects of the judicial system, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.
In 2012, while unemployed and receiving Social Security payments, the 55-year-old filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, as she owed more than $300,000 to various creditors, mostly for unpaid mortgages on two properties in Elgin and various medical bills.
Then last summer, she was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance and retail theft.
About 5:45 p.m. Friday, Chicago Police were called to a CVS at 3944 N. Western because Robey was threatening store employees with a knife, authorities said. As officers arrived, CVS employees told them the woman had since left and was standing at a bus stop on Western.
At the bus stop, Robey continued to brandish the knife and made threats toward the officers, police said. She made lunging motions at the officers, who tried to use a stun gun to subdue her. But it had no effect, and officers tried to use it once more to subdue her, again to no effect, police said. She again lunged at officers, who each fired one shot.
The investigation was ongoing Saturday evening; a police spokesman could not be reached for comment.
An autopsy found Robey died of a gunshot wound to the abdomen, and the Cook County medical examiner’s office ruled her death a homicide. She lived in the Hollywood Park neighborhood on the Northwest Side.
In the bankruptcy filing, she said she had $5 on her and another $11.26 in her checking account. She drove a Honda CRV with 140,000 miles that was valued at $1,948.
She was disabled and unemployed at the time, receiving $2,359 every month in Social Security with $799 designated to go toward providing for her son, who was 15 at the time.
Robey didn’t file taxes in 2011 or 2012 because she was out of work, and in 2010, she reporting making $19,360, according to the bankruptcy filing.
She also faced foreclosure on a property in Kane County at the time.
In 2013, Robey settled with her creditors, losing the two Elgin homes, records show. The attorney who arranged her declaration could not be reached for comment Saturday.
The drug and theft charges against her were eventually dropped; the attorney who initially represented her also could not be reached for comment.
In recent weeks, a relative expressed concern for her well being, writing on Robey’s Facebook page: “Who are you today? Are you ok?” before telling Robey to call her.
Reached at her home on the Northwest Side Saturday afternoon, Robey’s mother declined to be interviewed.
The Independent Police Review Authority was investigating the use of force, spokeswoman Mia Sissac said Friday.
The shooting occurred at a busy intersection during Friday evening’s rush hour.
One witness, Darryl Dixon, 55, said he was at the gas station across street when he saw police arrive. Dixon said officers’ interaction with woman lasted 15 to 20 minutes.
I saw the young woman walk toward me, and she had Taser wires hanging off the back of her jacket,” he said.
Dixon said once the woman lunged at the two officers and he heard two shots fired, he was in shock as he saw the woman fall to the ground.
“The male officer said, ‘You should have dropped the knife. An ambulance is coming now,’” Dixon said. “I just said, ‘No.’ Because it happened about 20 to 30 feet in front of me. Just another person hurt.”

#AceNewsReport – Jan.07: Army troops have #killed two militants linked to a group supporting the #Daesh Channel News Asia reported on Saturday …
The foreigner, believed to be Pakistani and identified as Abu Naila, resisted arrest and attempted to throw a grenade while a #police and military team was conducting a manhunt in Sarangani province, Chief Superintendent Cedrick Train, a #police regional director, said.
They were conducting an operation against members of the militant Ansar Al-Khilafah Philippines (AKP), one of a handful of small groups that have pledged allegiance to Islamic State and blamed for years of unrest in the Philippine south.
On Thursday, #police chief Ronald dela Rosa said security forces had effectively broken the backbone of AKP with the #killing of its leader, Mohammad Jaafar Maguid, and the arrest of his three AKP colleagues.
He has warned of “retaliation” by other AKP members and said security forces were on full alert as Filipino Catholics are set to celebrate the feast of the Black Nazarene, with millions of devotees expected to join processions on Monday in several parts of the country, including Manila.
Authorities have linked Maguid’s group to several crimes ranging from arson and murder to bombings.
Regional police spokesman Romeo Galgo said they were still verifying the nationality of the foreigner killed on Saturday.
“Officers were forced to fire at the suspects when the grenade was lobbed at them,” Train said.
President Rodrigo Duterte has warned against Islamic State taking root in the southeast Asian country, saying it needed to avoid “contamination“.
