A man was sentenced Wednesday after threatening to kill two Laurens Police Officers and rape one of the officer’s infant daughter, according to Solicitor David Stumbo.
Henry Kevin Grant, 42, was convicted by a Laurens County jury on Tuesday evening of two counts of threatening the life of a public official stemming from an incident in June of this year.
He got 5 years on the first count and five years suspended to three years probation on the second count. The sentences will run consecutively and are the maximum sentence allowed under state law, according to Stumbo.
Police got a call in June about trespassing. They say Grant was a bystander at the scene and began yelling obscenities at the officers.
They warned him several times to calm down before he was arrest for disorderly conduct.
Once they had Grant inside the patrol car, he threatened to rape the infant daughter of one of the officers, according to the report.
The report says the officer took the threat seriously because Grant had been seen in the area of the officer’s home on multiple occasions in the past.
Grant also threatened to kill the other Laurens police officer who responded to the scene while they were on the way to the detention center, according to Stumbo.
The report says Grant also had pending charges for domestic violence and threatening the life of a public official related to a separate incident that occurred in July after he made bond on the June charges.
A Facebook post from a former Navy SEAL is going viral this week warning the far left of the possibly deadly consequences of removing President Donald Trump from office.
One year after the election that saw Trump beat Hillary Clinton, liberals are still desperate to have him removed from office at any cost. Now, fed-up former Navy SEAL Craig “Sawman” Sawyer has written a letter to these liberals letting them know exactly why it would be bad to impeach Trump.
Here’s what Sawyer had to say:
Note: Nowhere here does this say innocent civilians, or a legit impeachment. On the contrary, this speaks specifically to an illegal silent coup by corrupt officials using false charges, as has leaked out by Clinton cronies lately. Anything else is a different scenario entirely. Honor our Constitution! Keep it straight. 👍
Americans, Patriots, pray for our nation. Pray for our President.
I’m hearing serious rumblings of a hostile, illegal coup against our democratically elected President by seditious, deep-state subversives funded by Soros & other globalists. Very disturbing.
Patriots, this would be nothing less than an act of war against the American people. It would be the removal of our boldest defender & last possibility of maintaining our protective Constitution. Under the boot of globalists, life as we know it, would immediately decline to the model that suits the globalist interest – Marxist/Socialist/Communist. They get complete control, you get zero. Freedom, Gone! Liberty, Gone! This agenda is evil and simply cannot be allowed, at ANY cost.
Like ALL military, law enforcement and government officials, I took an oath to defend our Constitution against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. By abandoning the rule of law and conducting a coup against the President & policies WE THE PEOPLE elected, they have made themselves enemies of the United States.
Under threat, ALL patriots, whether civilian, law enforcement, government, or military, have the duty to defend our Constitution against such enemies. Some speculate on “civil war”. I readily recognize a much more sobering reality: Anti-American subversives involved in ANY WAY in an unconstitutional coup against our President will be run down and executed immediately by the world’s most supreme warriors. There will be nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide, no mercy, no sense of humor. Harsh examples will be made. My prediction is it will be a gruesome massacre. Why? Because one side in this conflict has 8 Trillion bullets & the other side doesn’t know which bathroom to use. 🤣
It will likely only take a few hours. Lessons will be learned. History will take note. Order restored.
Patriots, We The American People stand united as one, against ALL enemies. We are peace-loving people who abide by the rule of law. Prepare yourselves in case this ridiculous insanity actually gets played out and the rule of law goes out the window under their gross miscarriage of our legal process. Shaking my head…
RANCHO CUCAMONGA (CBSLA) — A San Bernardino County sheriff’s sergeant has been critically injured but is expected to survive after being stabbed several times while responding to a 911 call.
Many shoppers were disappointed when they came to the Rancho Cucamonga Hobby Lobby and found out it was not open. But investigators had the parking lot blocked off for much of the evening, as they gathered evidence and tried to figure out what led to the stabbing of a sheriff’s deputy.
A few people say they’d noticed the suspect earlier, because of the way he was dressed.
“He was in longer pajamas. To me, it looked unusual for the time of the day,” Witness Jonathan Schultz said.
Investigators say 22-year-old Kenneth Perry, of Fontana, called 911 himself. To claim he’d been abducted. When Sgt. Kimberly Watkins responded, he lunged at her with this knife.
She suffered critical stab wounds in the face and shoulder, but was able to grab her weapon and shoot back.
Perry suffered a graze wound to his upper thigh. Watkins was able to hold him, until other deputies could respond and get him into custody. Watkins, who’s been with the department for 26 years, was taken to Loma Linda University Medical Center.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff says he visited her earlier in the day.
Sheriff’s investigators say Perry had no previous criminal history in San Bernardino county. He’s now facing charges of attempted murder of an officer and is expected in court on Wednesday.
Following his decision on Wednesday to lift the ban on importing elephant remains, President Donald Trump has sparked further outrage by rolling back regulations which protect lions from hunters.
The regulations, which came into place following the outrage over the death of Cecil the Lion in 2015, prevented big game hunters from bringing trophies from animals killed in parts of Africa back to the US.
Trump’s administration has however lifted the ban, sparking fears from conservationists that trophy hunters may begin slaughtering lions to import their grisly trophies.
The US Fish and Wildlife Service officially listed lions as endangered in 2016 and tighter restrictions were placed on the imports of hunting trophies.
Despite this ABC News report the US Fish and Wildlife Service began issuing permits to import lion trophies again on October 20 this year.
The Wildlife Service claims it made its decision after deciding regulating hunting could help fund conservation, despite critics saying all it will do is fuel demand for wild animal products.
The president of The Humane Society of the United States, Wayne Pacelle, wrote on his blog, according to The Guardian:
The Interior Department and the government of Zimbabwe (whoever is in charge) are rolling out the red carpet for the next Walter Palmer, the Minnesota dentist who lured a famous and beloved lion, Cecil, out of a national park and shot and wounded him with an arrow.
The outrage factor is almost beyond compare for us at The HSUS.
Pacelle also noted, following the death of Cecil the lion, more than forty airlines banned the transport of wildlife trophies on their planes.
He went on to hint the Humane Society would sue the federal government for promoting trophy hunting, writing:
African elephants and African lions drive billions of dollars of economic activity in Africa. But they drive that activity only when they are alive.
Killing them deducts from their populations, diminishes wildlife-watching experiences for others, and robs the countries of Africa of its greatest resources.
The folly that the killing helps lions and elephants is just that ― pure folly. We’ll see the agency in court.
The news follows Donald Trump’s administration’s decision to lift the Obama-era ban on imports of elephant remains from Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The announcement was condemned by conservationists who claimed it as a ‘backward step’ and warned the elephant population was in decline due to poaching and a reduction in their territory.
People can be so cruel. It is hard for me, as an animal lover, to understand why people would treat animals poorly. All animals have feelings. An animal that is treated right will be a blessing and a wonderful companion. I feel sorry for the people who abuse a helpless cat or dog. There is something terribly wrong with those folks.
A college employee walked saved this little puppy from the trash on a Santa Rosa Junior College’s campus in Santa Rosa, California. The tiny Chihuahua was rushed to Sonoma County Animal Services. Just look at how tiny she is – it is a miracle that the man found her!
The dog was named Darla, and she weighed only 2 pounds. Her age was estimated to be about 14 weeks. The college, at the time, posted an update about Darla on their Facebook page.
They reported that she had two broken legs and would need surgery to fix them. Here we see Darla sporting her casts (which seem to be just about as big as she is!). Once Darla was going to recover, she would have been put up for adoption.
Until then, she was being cared for at a foster home. Sonoma County Animal Services has opened an investigation. But it is unlikely they will find the person responsible.
Darla had no collar and no microchip.
Sadly, Darla went into cardiac arrest shortly after her surgery. The doctors were able to revive her, but she died peacefully in her sleep a few hours later. Rest in Peace, Darla. Share away, people.
It is our obsession to take a look at ridiculously awesome and rare cars, at least which is the only thing we can do when we are not able to own one. Recently, there have been some absolutely wonderful creations and restored vehicles, but it seems that nothing can get better than the one you are about to see in this gallery. Of course we are talking about the one and only 1972 Javelin AMX Ringbrothers. This awesome car was unveiled at the SEMA 2017 and people fell in love with it almost instantly. But what makes this Javelin so specific and one of a kind?
Well, to begin with, the car has been restored to mere perfection and everything you see on it looks utterly gorgeous. Moreover, this car was built to celebrate an anniversary! Namely, Preston wanted to a very special vehicle that will mark an unbelievable milestone i.e. their 90s anniversary. Hereby, Jim and Mike Ring got everything they needed to build this amazing 1972 Javelin AMX.
It is an absolute piece of 70s culture. But the process was not easy and it required manufacturing of many custom-made parts, such as the door handles and bumpers. So, what is actually under the hood? Well, this monster has the mighty 6.2L Hellcat engine along with a 3.2 Whipple that is able to produce whooping 1,080 HP.
Besides its amazing look, this car is extremely fast too. What do you think, is the Javelin AMX Ringbrothers the best ever made?
How Did The Ringbrothers Defiant! Get Its Start?
“Jim and I have always wanted to build an AMX,” said Mike Ring, co-founder of Ringbrothers. “We’ve seen this particular car driving around our hometown of Plain, Wisconsin since we were kids and we always loved it. The AMX was such a neat car, unlike anything else at that time.”
And build an AMX they did.
The original powerplant for this Javelin, which could be any number of V8s depending on which model they used as a base, is long gone. In its place sits a rowdy 6.2L Hellcat engine good for 707 hp. Ringbrothers upped the ante by replacing the Hellcat’s go-fast bit with a gargantuan 4.5L Whipple supercharger, raising the power output to a whopping 1,036 ponies.
Ringbrothers always shows incredible craftsmanship in its builds and has produced some of the most immaculate engine bays and setups we’ve ever laid eyes on. Everything is so neatly tucked in, detailed and color-matched; they may say their car builders, but what they really do is create some seriously memorable works of automotive art.
Even cooler is that on top of building incredible cars, Ringbrothers also offers carbon fiber body panels for sale. The parts are inspired by their signature stylings so that the aftermarket can have a taste of what they’re laying down.
Defiant! puts its power down thanks to a 4-speed GM 4L80E automatic transmission, which translates torque to the rear wheels via a carbon fiber driveshaft. 335mm tires in the rear and 285mm rubbers up front give the car a nice surface area to work with; the 1,000 hp monster certainly needs all the grip and handling it can get if it hopes to stay in one piece!
With great power also comes some big-ass brakes. Defiant! makes do with powerful six-piston Baer brakes on all four wheels, ensuring the beast to a proper halt without much fuss. The sound is handled by a Flowmaster exhaust
