Cop Buys Diapers, Shoes for Mom Caught Shoplifting for Kids

What a wonderful story. Although we keep track of the ugly side of law enforcement, we also appreciate the great police officers who are the real ones keeping our streets safe...

A Kansas mom thought she was going to jail when she was caught stealing at Walmart. But what happened next left her in tears.

Sarah Robinson said she was running out of diapers for her 2-year-old twin daughters when she walked into Walmart in Roeland Park, Kansas, on July 6.

"I was just going to potty-train them, but I didn't have a place for them to bathe," Robinson, of Kansas City, Kansas, told ABC News. "I had lost my house and all of our belongings, and I don't have a job."

Robinson has been struggling to make ends meet since the tragic death of her husband in 2012. She and her daughters, 15-year-old Emily, 13-year-old Sophia, 12-year-old Angelina, 4-year-old Miley and twins Becky and Bella, spent most of their time in their car, from which all of their possessions had recently been stolen, Robinson said.

"So I went to Walmart, grabbed clothes, shoes, diapers, wipes, and I just walked out, but they caught me," said Robinson.

When Roeland Park police officer Mark Engravalle arrived, he noticed that some of the children with Robinson were barefoot and had dirty feet.

"He noticed [what she stole] were necessities like diapers, shoes for the kids, some clothing," Roeland Park public information officer John Demoss told ABC News. "He asked her what the situation was, and she broke down crying."

"My heart just dropped. I didn't know what to say or do. It was horrible. I thought I was going to jail," said Robinson.

DOJ subpoenas identities of online commenters for ‘threats’ against judge

The Department of Justice issued a grand jury subpoena to the leading libertarian magazine Reason for the identities of anonymous commenters on an online article that they published about the controversial Silk Road court case.

The article, which was published on May 31, commented on the life sentence handed down to Ross Ulbricht, who was convicted of running the online drug market Silk Road.

“Ulbricht will spend the rest of his life in jail for creating a revolutionary website that made it easier and safer to buy and sell illegal drugs,” wrote Nick Gillespie, author of the article and editor-in-chief of Reason Magazine.

The severity of the punishment shocked a number of members of the public, including the libertarian-leaning audience of Reason.

Texas Woman was ‘Kicked, Punched’ by 4 Florida Cops For Requesting Tampons (VIDEO)

The case of Audra West, a Texas hairdresser who was severely beaten in a Florida jail, has received a boost after video emerged showing police officers handling her violently, without physical provocation. The police deny any wrongdoing.

West was on holiday when she was detained at a bar on Fort Lauderdale beach for being drunk in public and resisting arrest in May last year. She was then taken to the North Broward Detention Facility. After spending ten hours in the police station, her period began, and West asked Deputy Kristin Connelly for a tampon.

According to West’s lawyer, Gary Kollin, who spoke to RT, Connelly refused the request, asking the detainee to use a “polite” tone. West then rephrased it, but Connelly denied her again, with the inmate then mouthing “F**k you” at the officer.

Here's One Theory About Why Cops In America Kill So Many People

The protests and violence sparked by the police shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri, have stirred up a debate in the U.S. about the use of lethal force by police.
In the chart above, you can see just how alarming American statistics on fatal police shootings are when compared to other Western countries.

The FBI reports that in 2011, cops in America killed 404 suspects in acts of "justifiable homicide." Astonishingly, though, as FiveThirtyEight reports, this number likely doesn't include every civilian fatality that year since it relies on voluntary reporting and doesn't include police homicides that aren't justifiable.

Still, 404 is a large number. By comparison, just six people were killed by police in Australia over the same period. Police in England and Wales killed only two people, and German police killed six.
