Last week, Barry Brodd, the retired police officer, said he believed the former Minneapolis officer was justified in his use of force during the George Floyd arrest.

The Santa Rosa Police Department issued a statement on Saturday that said it seemed that the “suspects in this vandalism were targeting” Brodd for his testimony. The statement said the vandals seemed to have targeted the wrong home because Brodd has not lived there for years.

Police responded to the home at about 3 a.m. Saturday and discovered blood on the home and a severed pig’s head on the front porch. 

TED CRUZ CALLS OUT WATERS 

Brodd, a former Santa Rosa police officer, told the court last Tuesday that it is “easy to sit and judge … an officer’s conduct.

“It’s more of a challenge to, again, put yourself in the officer’s shoes to try to make an evaluation through what they’re feeling, what they’re sensing, the fear they have, and then make a determination.”

Brodd likened Floyd’s death to a situation in which officers use a Taser on someone and the suspect falls, hits his head and dies: “That isn’t an incident of deadly force. That’s an incident of an accidental death.”

Chief Rainer Navarro, the Santa Rosa police chief, said in a statement obtained by the Associated Press that Brodd’s comments “do not reflect the values and beliefs” of his department.

Border crisis: Wolf says 'a lot' of the problems has to do with politics http://iktodaypk.com/politics/border-crisis-wolf-says-a-lot-has-to-do-with-politics/ http://iktodaypk.com/politics/border-crisis-wolf-says-a-lot-has-to-do-with-politics/#respond Mon, 19 Apr 2021 02:52:35 +0000 http://iktodaypk.com/politics/border-crisis-wolf-says-a-lot-has-to-do-with-politics/ Chad Wolf, the former acting secretary of the executive in the Trump administration, told Fox News Sunday night that it seems that the Biden administration has dropped the ball at the border because his team does not take law enforcement there seriously.

The U.S. has seen a record number of unaccompanied children attempting to cross the border in March, and the largest number of Border Patrol encounters overall with migrants on the southern border—just below 170,000—since March 2001. President Biden, for the first time this weekend, described the situation at the border as a “crisis.”

HARRIS PURPOSELY ‘AVOIDS’ BORDER: BORDER PATROL COUNCIL CHIEF

GOP lawmakers say Biden administration’s decision to reverse Trump-era immigration policies prompted the latest surge in migrants. The White House has argued that Biden inherited a chaotic situation and is working to stabilize the border.

HARRIS GOES 26 DAYS WITHOUT HOLDING PRESS CONFERENCE ABOUT BORDER CRISIS

Wolf said there are measures that DHS can employ to get the crisis at the border under control, but the administration must take a new approach. 

“A lot of it has to do with politics, unfortunately,” Wolf said.

He said the Trump administration worked both domestically and internationally– with Northern Triangle countries– to keep the border safe during the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak. But he said the achievements have been “unwound” to such a degree that the administration is “basically breaking the system.”

The White House did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News seeking comment.

Biden border coverage draws flakVideo

Wolf also commented on the lawsuits leveled against the Biden administration from states like Texas and Missouri that say the scrapping of the Migrant Protection Protocols—which kept migrants in Mexico while their immigration hearing played out– allows “dangerous criminals” to take advantage of the “lapse in law enforcement.”

Wolf called the suits “critical and important.” He said the Biden administration has essentially handcuffed ICE officers from removing dangerous individuals from the country.

“I’m very hopeful that those lawsuits will go forward and we’ll see a change in policy at the end of the day,” Wolf said.

The genres music icon – who holds the most ever ACM nominations with a whopping 68 to her name – showed off three different outfits as she was quite busy during country music’s biggest night.

Lambert came out the gate ready to slay and set the stage ablaze as she walked the carpet and opened the show with Elle King – the duo coordinating in all-black ensembles bedazzled in pink and teal rhinestones during their performance of “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)”.

Her next look came as a quick change in the ninth hour as Lambert filled in for Chris Stapleton’s wife, Morgane, during their performance of the husband-and-wife duet “Maggie’s Song.”

“I think my sister-in-law is in labor right now. She may be on her way to the hospital. I’m not sure. So my wife was kind of on baby watch — and for once, not her own baby. But it’s been an interesting night tonight. So lots to celebrate. And, you know, the awards are just part of it.”

The star bagged his third entertainer of the year award, previously scoring back-to-back victories in 2014 and 2015.

“Luke Bryan winning ACM Entertainer of the Year is exactly why I’m leaving this planet,” said one viewer.

“ARE YOU F—— KIDDING ME? LUKE BRYAN? ARE YALL SERIOUS?” said another after previously expressing hope that Luke Combs would take the award. “I CANT STOP TYPING IN CAPS LOCK! IM PISSED AF.”

2021 ACMS COMPLETE WINNERS LIST

A third called the Academy of Country Music “garbage” for choosing Bryan, 44, over Eric Church.

Yet another said: “I would just like to say, once again Eric Church gets robbed of Entertainer of the Year, and this year he loses to LUKE BRYAN?? IS THIS A JOKE??”

However, there were many who were pleased to see the “american-idol” target=”_blank”>American Idol<. “6 YEARS. AND HE FINALLY GOT HIS 3RD. IM SO PROUD OF HIM.”

“LUKE BRYAN WINS ACM ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR!!!” said another.

A third added: “Congratulations to Luke Bryan of Entertainer of yr at ACM Awesome.”

Bryan was shocked to have earned the honor as well.

“I’m amazingly surprised. What an honor,” Bryan said remotely from los-angeles” target=”_blank”>Los Angeles<

In the press room after his win, the star explained that there were years in the past that he felt he should have won when he didn’t, leading him to believe that “maybe you’re done winning them.”

“Then to win another one is very special,” he gushed, later adding: “What an honor. What a surprise and I mean, totally, totally, totally surprised and shocked.”

Furthermore, he noted that he “didn’t feel worthy” when he earned his first entertainer of the year win back in 2014 and noted that the win felt “premature.”

“I think what you have to think about when you’re in the midst of being an artist in country music is you can’t get caught up in one year. You can’t get caught up in two years. You have to just be all in the middle of doing it because you love it,” Bryan continued. “And I think one day when you’re 75, 80 years old and you look back, I think you can look at your body of work and what you are and what you were, and hopefully, you look back and you can go, ‘God, I loved every minute of that. I loved the years that I didn’t win because they challenged me and they made me work harder at all aspects.'”

Bryan was unable to attend the award ceremony on Sunday because he was in Los Angeles filming “Idol.” He recently faced a setback when he was diagnosed with COVID-19, though he said he was “fortunate” to not have suffered terribly while fighting the virus.

2021 ACM AWARDS: LUKE BRYAN TAKES HOME TOP AWARD AS KEITH URBAN DECLARES ‘NASHVILLE IS BACK’

“There were times where [my wife] Caroline was nursing me back to health. So I was certainly amazed to move through that. And now looking back on the past, certainly going into a year and a half, I mean, the main thing that gets you through … is certainly your friends and your family and praying everybody can see the other side of certainly this pandemic and leaning on the people in your organization …” he reflected. “I mean, it’s been an amazingly challenging year for the entertainment business, the music business and all of the satellite companies that support the music and certainly the fans.”

The “Down to One” singer said that performing on stage “is a big big part of” what makes him happy, so in a year when such performances were limited, he faced “ups and downs and bouts of kind of depression stuff.”

“You look back on a night and certainly winning entertainer of the year is certainly one of those things where you’re like, thank you, God, thank you fans and very excited here in L.A. tonight,” he concluded.

Women were left out of the top category after Carrie Underwood and Thomas Rhett tied for entertainer of the year last year, the first time ever for a tie and the first time a woman had won the category since Taylor Swift in 2012.

2021 ACM Awards leaves some viewers frustrated amid technical difficulties: ‘So many hiccups’ http://iktodaypk.com/entertainment/2021-acm-awards-technical-difficulties-dan-and-shay/ http://iktodaypk.com/entertainment/2021-acm-awards-technical-difficulties-dan-and-shay/#respond Mon, 19 Apr 2021 00:18:03 +0000 http://iktodaypk.com/entertainment/2021-acm-awards-technical-difficulties-dan-and-shay/ The 2021 events aired on CBS on Sunday night, and with it, a pair of noticeable faux pas.

Since the infectious-disease forced the entertainment industry to go remote, award shows have been no stranger to technical difficulties and mishaps that have marred broadcasts.

Sunday’s show, which featured pre-taped performances from several artists, was no exception.

The band addressed the mishap on Twitter.

“Apparently there was an audio/video sync issue on the television broadcast,” they wrote online. “We’re bummed about it, but it happens, especially when performances are happening in multiple locations.”

Performances for the show took place at several locations across nashville” target=”_blank”>Nashville<.

The snafu resulted in fans voicing frustrations online.

“Please own up to the production issues that caused the audio and video to be off,” said one viewer. “I’ve seen Dan+Shay live numerous times. They don’t lip sync and it’s sad to think that there are now people who think they do.”

“Too bad on the CBS broadcast that’s not even close to what it looked like,” added another. “Totally butchered it – the sound was off by at least 5 seconds.”

Said a third: “Nice song but what went wrong on the delay. Very distracting. Is this not LIVE?”

Their issue wasn’t the only one that caught viewers’ eyes either.

“The @ACMawards have so many hiccups tonight. They just put Gabby Barrett’s song up for Single of The Year but then the winner was different,” noted a viewer.

“What just happened with the single of the year?” asked another. “It said Gabby Barrett at the bottom of the screen??? Anyone see that??”

However, there were viewers who loved the show. “It was the best show I’ve seen in a long time! Great job @ACMawards!” said one person.

“@ACMawards Great show! Missing live music. Great night. Congrats to all!” added another viewer. 

Reps for the Academy of Country Music did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

He continued: “You know, it reminded us all what we do for a living because we’ve, for the past couple of years, we’ve had to cancel two years of touring and so I just haven’t seen that many people that you consider family on the road.”

The star explained that the reunion was “really emotional” because he “didn’t realize how much [he] missed everybody.”

Fans of the performance took to Twitter to share their excitement.

President Biden referred to the shootings as an “epidemic and an international embarrassment.”
