Six police officers were shot, two fatally, in three separate incidents in Florida and Pennsylvania late Friday, officials said.

Two officers were shot in Kissimmee around 9:30 p.m., just south of the theme park hub of Orlando, central Florida. They both later died from their wounds.

In Jacksonville, two officers were critically wounded in a shoot-out, while two state troopers were also shot in Fayette County, Pennsylvania.

In Kissimmee, officers Sam Howard and Matthew Baxter were checking suspects in an area of the city for drug activity when they were shot, Kissimmee Police Chief Jeff O'Dell said at a news conference. They did not have an opportunity to return fire.

"They were surprised," O'Dell said. When asked whether they were ambushed, he said, "It's too early to tell, but it's leading that way."

Baxter, a three-year veteran of the department, died later at a hospital Friday. The 27-year-old was married to another officer and father to four young children.

Howard, a 10-year veteran, died from his wounds Saturday afternoon, the department said.

Police have arrested and charged suspect Everett Glenn Miller, 45, with first degree murder in connection with Baxter's murder. Additional charges were not immediately announced.

"There may have been some type of scuffle, ending in the shooting that took Officer Baxter's life," O'Dell said. He added that Miller does not seem to have an extensive criminal history.

The officers were checking three of the suspects when Miller allegedly opened fire and fled. He was later identified and arrested by the sheriff's office and initially charged with having two concealed weapons.

"This is devastating to law enforcement and heart breaking," O'Dell said. "They were the epitome of what you ask for in law enforcement officers."

O'Dell said the officers were not wearing body cameras at the time of the shooting.

President Donald Trump tweeted that his “thoughts and prayers” were with the local police “and their loved ones.”

Mayor Jose Alvarez said in a statement: “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of our fallen officer, Matthew Baxter who lost his life in the line of duty. Our prayers also go out to Sergeant Sam Howard and his family as he remains in critical condition.

“The entire city of Kissimmee is in mourning. We pray for all law enforcement who are out there, protecting our community.”

In Jacksonville, Officers Michael Fox and Kevin Jarrell were responding to a call about an attempted suicide at a house. As the approached the property, officers heard gunfire inside the home, Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Director of Patrol and Enforcement Mike Bruno told NBC News.

Before officers even entered the house, the suspect began shooting at them through the doorway.

"We're talking a gun battle within four or five feet of each other," Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said during a press conference on Saturday. "The suspect fired at the officers, two officers were struck ... and the suspect in the exchange of gunfire was struck twice by the officers."

Williams later identified 25-year-old Derrick Rashard Brabham as the alleged shooter. He later died from his wounds.

Williams said Brabham had no prior criminal history and it is believed that the incident was fueled by alcohol. During the conference, Williams showed images of a semi-automatic rifle allegedly used during the shooting.

Fox is an 11-year veteran of the Jacksonville police force. Williams said this is his second officer-involved shooting. Jarrell has been on the force for five years.
In Pennsylvania, two troopers were shot and a suspect killed after an incident near store on West Church Street in Fayette County, Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Melinda Bondarenka said in a statement.

One of the troopers was air-lifted from the scene to a hospital in Morgantown, West Virginia and the other was taken to a hospital via ambulance, NBC station WPXI reported.

Both were stable and alert, Bondarenka said.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s father, the late former Baltimore Mayor Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., once lauded Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson at a monument dedication ceremony in his city over half a century ago.

The statues were torn down by Baltimore authorities last Tuesday after the violent events surrounding the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue in Charlottesville, Va. last week.  
Any comment, Nan?

According to The Baltimore Sun, the statue, first erected in 1948, included a dedication ceremony of prominent city politicians like Pelosi’s father who led the municipality at the time.

At the dedication, D’Alesandro said of the monument, “Today, with our nation beset by subversive groups and propaganda which seeks to destroy our national unity, we can look for inspiration to the lives of Lee and Jackson to remind us to be resolute and determined in preserving our sacred institutions.”

D’Alesandro was joined by fellow Baltimore resident J. Henry Ferguson, who donated the funds to build the monument and whose father was an ally of Confederate President Jefferson Davis.

“They were great generals and great Christian soldiers,” Ferguson said during the ceremony.

More recently, Pelosi herself called for the removal of all confederate statues in the nations’ capitol.

“The Confederate statues in the halls of Congress have always been reprehensible,” Pelosi said in a statement. “If Republicans are serious about rejecting white supremacy, I call upon Speaker Ryan to join Democrats to remove the Confederate statues from the Capitol immediately.”

The Washington Post notes there are 12 Confederate statues in the Capitol and it is the decision of each state as to whether to replace the statue that is representing their state.

McCain’s NAZI Secret Leaks After His Poisonous Attack Against Trump

Well, well well! The ANTIFA John McCain is also a ruthless NAZI when needed. Believe it or not, this evil snake changed the skin before and after Charlottesville only to use that as an opportunity to confront President Trump and score political points. BUT, when he was executing the orders of his masters in Ukraine he was more Nazi than anybody else in the USA. Disgusting! Read more below:

Arizona Senator John McCain was quick to slam President Donald Trump for his response to the violence in Charlottesville. Now, however, McCain’s own Nazi secret has leaked, showing that he’s the one who is in bed with neo-Nazis.

Freedom Daily reported that after Trump said that there was blame on “both sides,” McCain twisted his words as “proof” that Trump supports the KKK and white supremacists, with the following ridiculous statement, where he outrageously propped up Antifa terrorists as the faction who “fights hate and bigotry” in America.

“There’s no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate& bigotry. The President of the United States should say so,” McCain wrote.

However, McCain was just exposed as a huge supporter of the Neo-Nazi party known as the Svoboda neo-Nazi Party, a terror group that carried out one of the bloodiest coups in Ukraine back in 2013 that McCain helped assist. Neo-Nazis who showed up in Charlottesville over the weekend for the “Unite The Right” rally are from an offshoot of the Svoboda Party, who has been donating MASSIVE amounts of cash to McCain’s Institute over the years.

McCain even traveled to Ukraine four years ago to help these terrorists carry out a coup on their government, where the radical group still donates to McCain’s Institute as a way of saying thanks. 
The anti-Trump senator loved hanging out with these neo-Nazis so much, that he spent New Year’s Eve last year partying with them. 

This guy is a real sh*t starter. Well, first he is a nazi, but now he actually hates the Nazis. Or, actually, he is BOTH because his own masters control BOTH NAZIS AND ANTIFA.

One of the KKK leaders in Charlottesville was one of Obama most valuable campaign managers. Antifa was hired for 25 dollars an hour to protest. Seems legit, right?
