Dem MI Lawmaker Touts Relationship with Governor and Power over Police Budget During DUI Arrest



Jewell Jones

When driving under the influence and getting pulled over by a cop, amongst all the dumb, drunk things that one could say, this Michigan lawmaker takes the cake. During his DUI arrest earlier this month, Democratic State Representative Jewell Jones boasted his power over the state police budget, authorities said.

Jones crashed his Chevy Tahoe, an SUV with the license plate “ELECTED” on April 6th. During the arrest, “Jones, 26, was shocked twice with a Taser and hit with pepper spray before he was handcuffed, state police said” reported by

Jones had plenty of time to make threats and flaunt his relationship with Governor Gretchen Whitmer during the kerfuffle. Jones allegedly warned the officers their actions are “not going to be good for you…I run y’all budget, bro” the state police report states.

Also included in the police report Jones stated, “when I call Gretchen,” he’d need badge numbers for all of the state troopers and Fowlerville police officers on the scene. Allegedly when troopers threatened to hit Jones, he responded, “if you strike me, it’s going to be bad for you” and said, “I’ll call Governor Whitmer right now.”

Jones’ attorney, Ali Hammoud said his client “was fully cooperative” and claimed, “the officers decided to throw Representative Jones to the ground and three of them held him down, crushing him under their weight.”

“The officers also tased Representative Jones in his head, causing memory loss and leaving scars that are visible to this day” added the attorney. The police “used so much pepper spray on his face that his eyes still appear profoundly red and swollen” the lengthy statement claimed.

Gunman In Highland Park Shooting Was ‘Dressed In Women’s Clothing’




The suspected gunman who opened fire at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, on Monday was wearing women’s clothing as a disguise, police announced Tuesday.

The attack killed six people and injured dozens more, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek. The suspect, 22-year-old Robert E. Crimo III, was apprehended by police later that day near Lake Forest, Illinois.

“During the attack, Crimo was dressed in women’s clothing,” said Sgt. Christopher Covelli, of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, FOX 10 reported. “Investigators do believe he did this to conceal his facial tattoos and his identity and help him during the escape with the other people who were fleeing the chaos.”

“He brought a high-powered rifle to this parade,” Covelli said. “He accessed the roof of a business via a fire escape ladder and began opening fire on the innocent Independence Day celebration-goers.”

“After the shooting, Crimo blended in with the crowd and walked to his mother’s home in the area where he borrowed her vehicle, Covelli said. A member of the community spotted Crimo driving and called 911,” FOX 10 reported. “Crimo was pulled over and arrested during a traffic stop about five miles north of the shooting.”

Investigators have interrogated Crimo and reviewed his social media but have not been able to determine a motive for the attack, Covelli said.

Democrats Introduce ‘Transgender Bill Of Rights’



On Tuesday, House Democrats introduced a “Transgender Bill of Rights” to “protect and codify the rights of transgender and nonbinary people under the law and ensure their access to medical care, shelter, safety, and economic security.”

Led by Democrat Reps. Pramila Jayapal (WA), David Cicilline (RI), Marie Newman (IL), Mark Takano (CA), and Ritchie Torres (NY), HR 1209 proposes “amending the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics in public accommodations and federally funded programs and activities.”

“As we witness Republicans and an extremist Supreme Court attack and roll back the fundamental rights of trans people across our country, and as state legislatures across the country target our trans community with hateful, bigoted, and transphobic attacks, we are standing up and saying enough is enough,” said Jayapal, the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and co-chair of the Transgender Equality Task Force.

“Our Trans Bill of Rights says clearly to the trans community across the country that we see you and we will stand with you to ensure you are protected and given the dignity and respect that every person should have,” Jayapal added.

The bill seeks to increase the ability of children to get permanent and life changing surgeries by “eliminating unnecessary governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, gender-affirming medical care and counseling for transgender and nonbinary adults, adolescents, and children.”

The bill will additionally ensure that biological male students are allowed to compete in girls’ sports by amending federal “education laws to ensure that they protect students from discrimination based on sex, including gender identity and sex characteristics, and guarantee students’ right to participate in sports on teams that best align with their gender identity.”

Federal education laws will also be amended to allow students to :use school facilities that best align with their gender identity,” meaning that biological males would be allowed to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.

The bill expands beyond “transgender rights” to also ban states from making laws restricting abortion by “codifying the right to abortion.”
