Ohio Police Rescue Caged Puppies Strapped to Van Roof

A police dash-cam video shows officers rescuing four scared puppies from a cage strapped to the roof of a van traveling on an Ohio highway Friday, NBC News reported. Akron police pulled over the driver and his family after receiving multiple 911 calls about the dogs, who were wind-battered but didn't have any injuries, Sgt. Kris Beitzel told NBC affiliate WKYC. "I did ask him why the dogs were not riding in the car, and he said he had far more important things to put in the car, meaning his children, and there wasn't room," Beitzel said. The family of six, who was not identified, was driving about 70 mph on Interstate 76 when police caught up with them. The family handed the puppies over to police, and was told that it's against the law to transport animals on top of a vehicle. They were given a warning. Read »

"Shoot Me": Cop in Bodycam Video Refuses to Use Force

A rookie Ohio cop is being praised for "great restraint and maturity" after he held off using deadly force against a double murder suspect who charged at him, his police chief said. In the confrontation Thursday, New Richmond Police Officer Jesse Kidder is heard on his body-camera video yelling, "No man, I'm not going to do it!" and ordering the suspect to get down on the ground. The suspect rushes toward him shouting, "Shoot me, shoot me!" The man eventually crumples to the ground just feet away from the officer in the video. Investigators say Michael Wilcox killed his fiancee in their Brown County, Ohio, home, then killed his best friend in Elsmere, reported NBC affiliate WLWT in Cincinnati, which first obtained the body-camera video. The nonviolent confrontation caught on video has been highlighted as a positive example of police officer encounters nationwide. Their actions have been blemished by shootings of unarmed men, including a deadly officer shooting earlier this month in South Carolina. Read »
