In fact, the Baton Rogue Police Department arrested three men — including a 13-year-old boy — on Tuesday after four suspects robbed a pawn shop of eight handguns — allegedly to use them on police.
Police Chief Carl Dabdie addressed the arrests in a press conference claiming the suspects posed a "substantial, credible threat" to his men, saying:
"The reason the burglary was being done was to harm police officers… We have been questioned repeatedly over the last several days about our show of force and why we have the tactics that we have. Well, this is the reason, because we had credible threats against the lives of law enforcement in this city."
It's awful that people would seek to follow violence with violence. But we have to point out it almost sounds like Dabdie is implying this retaliation is in fact a justification for the scandal of blatantly killing a restrained man on camera…
BRPD are still on the lookout for one more suspect — as well as the two remaining guns thought to be in his possession. We're really hoping this crime can be solved without deadly force.
According to reports out Sunday morning, Angelina Jolie's political ambitions with the United Nations may have caused a rift between her and Brad Pitt, at least based on a source "close to the couple."
TMZ is reporting that Jolie's dream had been to become a top official with the UN -- which makes sense, considering all the charity work and traveling to developing nations that she does -- but that didn't fly at home with Brad.
