TN Deputy 'OK' After Being Dragged During Bust

Police Magazine - Fri, 10/20/2017 - 18:10

Hamblen County, TN, Deputy Bradley Gilmer, a narcotics investigator, escaped injury Thursday after he was dragged for about 30 feet down South Cumberland Street by an alleged crystal-meth dealer who was making an impromptu, high-speed getaway, authorities say.

"He's OK," Detective Lt. Eric Carson said this morning. "It scared him. He thought he was going to get run over. It was close, it was scary."

The alleged meth dealer, 53-year-old Lester Mark Bell, was taken into custody a short time later at his sister's residence on Shields Ferry Road. Two passengers in Ball's vehicle that he left behind on South Cumberland Street gave the defendant up, according to Carson.

Ball faces charges of aggravated assault, possession of meth for resale, evading arrest, reckless endangerment failure to exercise due care and running a stop sign. He remained in the Hamblen County Jail this morning in lieu of $250,000 bond, reports the Citizen Tribune.

“Our enquiries are ongoing in relation to this warrant.

“We would encourage any residents who suspect drug activity to be taking place in their neighbourhood to contact 101 – working on intelligence and information from the community is key to tackling this type of crime.”

Defense Technology Introduces 40mm Blunt Impact Projectile Collapsible Gel Rounds

Police Magazine - Fri, 10/20/2017 - 17:20

Defense Technology, a brand of The Safariland Group, has announced the release of its 40mm Blunt Impact Projectile (BIP) Collapsible Gel Rounds. Incorporating patented technologies, the BIP round is designed to be highly effective in law enforcement situations that require greater accuracy and delivered energy. This BIP round provides additional less lethal force options for law enforcement and military operators. The 40mm BIP Collapsible Gel Round will be on display at the 2017 International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference (IACP), in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, October 21-24, booth #1515.

The newest addition to existing "point-of-aim, point-of-impact" Defense Technology less lethal solutions, the 40mm BIP Collapsible Gel Rounds' collapsible gel nose technology enables the projectile to engage the target with higher kinetic energy across the operational range, while remaining less lethal at the minimum engagement range, according to the company.

"The round combines the proven Defense Technology smokeless powder propulsion system with the patented collapsible gel projectile designed and developed by Security Devices International, Inc. (SDI)," said John Kapeles, category director of Defense Technology. "The result is a less lethal impact munition that delivers maximum energy with extremely consistent velocities."

The projectile incorporates a rifling collar which engages the barrel rifling in the 40mm launcher for spin stabilization. The 40mm BIP projectiles have payload options of OC, CS, Inert Powder, Marking Liquid or Marking Powder. The colored marking liquid or powder identifies targets for apprehension with a temporary mark and remains on skin and clothing up to 24 hours.

"Because many law enforcement scenarios are requiring impact munitions with greater delivered energy at close range, we are confident that more agencies will adopt the 40mm BIP round," said Kapeles.

Available for order now, the 40mm BIP Collapsible Gel Rounds retail for $30.50 to $31.50. The Defense Technology 40mm BIP Collapsible Gel Rounds will be on display at The Safariland Group IACP booth, #1515, October 22 through 24. For more information, visit www.defense-technology.com.

Alabama Cop Killer Curses State, Raises Middle Fingers During Execution

Police Magazine - Fri, 10/20/2017 - 17:03

A man convicted of killing a police officer in 1997 was put to death Thursday by lethal injection, despite his claims that the state’s execution method was cruel and unusual, reports the Associated Press.

Torrey Twane McNabb, 40, used his last statement to tell his mother and sister that he was unafraid and he cursed at the state, saying “I hate you ... I hate you.”

As the procedure began, he raised his middle fingers before becoming still. He was pronounced dead at 9:38 p.m. CDT, authorities said.

McNabb was convicted of killing Montgomery police officer Anderson Gordon in 1997. Prosecutors say McNabb shot Gordon five times as the officer sat in his patrol car after arriving at a traffic accident McNabb caused while fleeing a bail bondsman.
