chaos is getting close prepare
After attacking his father in a drunken rage Sunday, Las Vegas police said, Paul Herron wanted to die.
“Just kill me, just shoot me,” Herron yelled at police, according to public records obtained by the Review-Journal on Tuesday.
James Easterwood, 72, was sitting in his condo in the 3200 block of Liahona Way, near East Harmon Avenue and South Mojave Road, when he heard his son upstairs “damaging his bedroom, yelling and screaming,” an arrest report said.
Herron then charged at Easterwood, raising two large butcher knives and shouting he was going to kill him. Easterwood kicked his son in the chest, and Herron went back upstairs and continued to trash the home.
Easterwood grabbed his cellphone and went outside to call for police.
Las Vegas police officer James Downing, 30, arrived on scene about 2:30 p.m. and confronted Herron on the front lawn, the report said.
Herron was still holding a knife in each hand and ignored orders to drop them, police said, but he kept moving toward the officer. When he was within five yards of Downing, the officer opened fire.
Herron was shot in the chest, arm and leg. Officers put handcuffs on him and called for an ambulance.
Downing has been with Metro since January 2007 and is assigned to the southeast area command center’s patrol division. He has been placed on routine paid administrative leave pending the outcome of a review of this event.
Herron was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center.
It was the 16th officer-involved shooting in Metro’s jurisdiction this year.
DECEMBER 23--Tennessee cops are hunting for a McDonald’s patron who pulled a gun on restaurant workers after complaining that his drive-thru order was short a McDouble cheeseburger.
According to police, Demetri Johnson, 21, placed an order early last Thursday at a McDonald’s in Nashville. After receiving his food, he pulled away from the restaurant’s drive-thru lane.
Johnson, pictured at right, soon returned to the eatery “and complained that he was missing a McDouble cheeseburger,” cops reported. A McDonald’s manager asked Johnson to park his car and promised “he would bring out the missing item.”
Detectives allege that after waiting for a few minutes, Johnson entered the restaurant with a gun in his hand. After racking the weapon, he demanded that his McDouble order be fixed. “He and the three women with him also demanded fresh fries and new soft drinks,” cops added. The quartet departed after receiving their food.
Johnson is being sought on a felony aggravated assault charge. According to court records, Johnson has
previously been arrested for weapons possession and theft.

Black students at Oberlin College with failing grades are demanding a free pass due to the recent events surrounding Michael Brown, Eric Garner and the “Black Lives Matter” protests.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, black students at Columbia University and even Harvard Law requested an extension for semester final exams due to being “traumatized” by the grand jury rulings, riots and shootings.
A recent petition has gathered several thousand signatures already and it specifically requests that Oberlin College give failing black students a grade of “C” at the minimum.
CINCINNATI (AP) — A mall shopper shot and killed a 16-year-old boy who attempted a robbery on the sidewalk outside, possibly in pursuit of a pair of limited-edition athletic shoes, police in southwest Ohio said Monday.
A Miami Township police official said the slain teenager and two other youths went to the Dayton Mall on Saturday morning for a shoe sale. Sgt. Joe Phares told reporters Monday that details were still being investigated, but that the teens apparently got there too late to buy the shoes they wanted. He didn't have any details on the shoes.
Police said the three juveniles from Middletown then approached two men outside and demanded their merchandise. They said one juvenile showed a gun, and one of the adults who had a permit to carry a concealed weapon then fired his own gun. It wasn't clear whether the adults actually had the shoes the youths were seeking.
"This was a random act of, 'I want something that person has, and I'm going to take it from him," Phares told reporters. "It didn't go down the way they thought it would."
Phares said he didn't have details on the kinds of weapons involved, but said investigators told him the juvenile's gun was a real firearm. Two young people have been killed in Ohio in recent months carrying what turned out to be pellet guns.
Police responded Saturday morning to a reported shooting at the Dayton Mall just off Interstate 75 near the southern suburb of Centerville. The Montgomery County coroner's office said the teenager died at 10:55 a.m. Saturday. The coroner Monday identified him as Jawaad Jabbar and said he died of a gunshot to the torso. Police said no one else was injured.
Police said the other two teens were being held in juvenile detention in Dayton. Phares said it's too soon to say what charges could be brought.
Several news media outlets reported that Jabbar was a student and athlete at Middletown High School. A message was left at the school, which was on holiday break. A message was also left Monda
A 14-year-old boy died after a shooting in the northeast valley Sunday night.
Police responded to a house in the 3600 block of Elegant Saint Court, near Pecos and Gowan roads, just before 7 p.m., Metro spokeswoman Officer Laura Meltzer said.
Officers found the boy suffering from gunshot wounds. He was taken to University Medical Center where he later died, Meltzer said.
The Clark County coroner’s office identified the boy as Del’Vonte Jenkins of Las Vegas.
Metro’s homicide unit is investigating the shooting. Police have not made any arrests in connection with
Jenkins’ death, Meltzer said.
Kareem must of missed the protest What do we what, dead cops,when do we what it NOW!! Kareem is a want to be civil rights leader that has lived like a king in this country . Kareem knows the real problems in black communities, high unemployment, fatherless children, high drop out rate in school, gangs, unwed teenage mothers, crime, the killing of black children by other black children,if anyone thinks for a second that the cops are the problem you better look in the mirror because you could fire every bad cop (and yes there are some that's in every profession), but that wouldn't change anything in the black community. this problem is the black community problem and blacks and only blacks can solve it. they need real leadership, not a want- be civil rights leaders who profits from theses problems.
i am hoping someday community leaders will step forward and say enough is enough and demand that people take responsibility for their children and their actions in education crime sex, but i am losing hope because in the end theses so called black leaders collect their dues and the poor black american is in the same
position as before.
