Chicago Cops No Longer Permitted To Chase Suspects On Foot For Some Offenses…

Via TPM:

Chicago police will be adopting a new foot chase police that looks to limit when an officer can engage in the tactic. This comes after two cases of police killing someone they were in pursuit of on foot.

The new policy, which goes into effect on June 11, prohibits foot chases in connection to minor traffic offenses or for criminal offenses less than a Class A misdemeanor, “unless the person poses an obvious threat to the community or any person,” according to USA Today.

The policy says that foot pursuits are now “appropriate only when there is probable cause for an arrest or it is believed an individual has committed, is committing or is about to commit a crime.”

Foot pursuits are to be discontinued if someone requires medical attention, if the officer loses the suspect’s location, if the officer believes they wouldn’t be able to control the suspect in the case of a confrontation, and “if the need to apprehend the subject is not worth the risk to responding officers, the public or the subject.”

Boris Johnson Tells G-7 To Build More Feminine, Gender Neutral World…

Via TheSun:

BORIS Johnson today called on G7 leaders to build a “more gender neutral, more feminine” world after the pandemic.

The PM’s odd rallying cry came as he opened the weekend summit in Cornwall after greeting leaders with Carrie Symonds on the beach.

World leaders have converged on Carbis Bay for crunch talks where they will draw up plans to fight coronavirus, climate change and global poverty.

Kicking off their first roundtable, Mr Johnson said: “It’s genuinely wonderful to see everybody in person, I can’t say what a difference it makes.”

But mapping out his vision for the post Covid world, he told his fellow leaders they should ensure “we’re building back better together. And building back greener. And building back fairer. And building back more equal.

“Maybe in a more general neutral, a more feminine, way. ”

Downing Street insisted the bizarre plea referred to £430million of funding the Government pledged tonight toward girls education in poor nations.

Buzzfeed News Somehow Wins A Pulitzer…

Via NY Times:

Pulitzer Prizes were awarded on Friday to news organizations that provided in-depth coverage of the dramatic turns of 2020, a year dominated by a pandemic that left millions dead and a national conversation on race after the murder of George Floyd.

The prize for public service, considered the most prestigious of the Pulitzers, went to The New York Times for its coverage of the coronavirus pandemic, an award shared by many departments at the newspaper. The board called The Times’s coverage “courageous, prescient and sweeping.”

The Pulitzer board also recognized journalism that examined law enforcement practices during a year of worldwide street protests inspired, in part, by the murder of Mr. Floyd, a Black man, by a police officer in Minneapolis.

Via Washington Times:

If President Biden won’t build a border wall, then Texas will.

Gov. Greg Abbott said Thursday that his state will erect border barriers in easy-crossing areas along the Rio Grande, and then start arresting and jailing illegal immigrants on state charges.
“The influx across the border is out of control, and the Biden Administration has shown that is not going to step up and do its job,” Mr. Abbott told Breitbart Texas shortly before a border summit Thursday in Del Rio.
