In the early hours of July 5th, Kissimmee residents Mario Manzi 19, Jazmin Ahmed 19, and Ryan Diaz 19, were stuck in the rain under a buildings parking overhang at 47 W. Jefferson street in Orlando after coming out of a mewithoutYou concert. They were patiently waiting for an Uber driver to take them home when all of a sudden an Orlando Police officer appeared on a bicycle claiming that he was responding to a call from a woman inside the building who said she could hear people talking under the parking overhang and that she could ‘smell marijuana’ through the buildings mail slot. Once the police officer – who has been identified as Michael Napolitano – said he was detaining and searching the concert goers under the suspicion that he could also smell marijuana, Manzi took out his cellphone to record the altercation for legal purposes. Once Manzi hit record, that’s where things began to go south.

a 78-year-old abandoned stadium on the National Register of Historic Places went up in flames Monday in Eugene, Oregon, as onlookers mournfully sang “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”
No injuries were reported, and the fire was declared under control about 7:30 p.m. (10:30 p.m. ET), about two hours after it was reported at Civic Stadium, Eugene-Springfield Fire Chief Randy Groves said. But a two-square-block-wide area around Civic Stadium remained under evacuation Monday night as a plume of gray smoke towered over the city of 159,000 people in western Oregon.
“This fire will probably be burning through tonight into tomorrow and the next day,” said Graves, who said the cause remained undetermined.
PALESTINE, Texas — Body camera footage capturing the split-second decision officers were forced to make when a suspect pulled what appeared to be a handgun has been released.
According to the Palestine Herald, Sgt. Gabriel Green and Officer Kaylynn Griffin were called to the scene May 31 after employees at a local store witnessed 47-year-old James D. Bushey attempting to steal a case of beer.
Green fired multiple shots at Bushey before Griffin, who had been armed with a TASER, pulled her weapon and also opened fire on the suspect.
Bushey died at the scene. Police later discovered the weapon was a replica made to resemble a Colt 1911 .45 caliber handgun, according to the report.
TRINIDAD, Colo. — The Third Judicial District Attorney has determined Trinidad police Officer Ron Arlint was justified in shooting and killing a suspect who pointed a gun at him in April.
The district attorney’s office announced the ruling in a letter to the Trinidad Police Department Thursday.
The incident happened April 24 at the Almar Trailer Park on East Main Street in Trinidad. The officer was sent to a vacant trailer in the park to investigate a report of trespassers. The officer went into the trailer, announced himself, and began a search. He then announced himself a second time, stated he was with the police department, and asked anyone in the trailer to announce themselves.
