      • please take the time to review your comments section for spam like that above. It is a basic responsibility to maintaining a website….and it ain’t that hard.

      • The officer that Doug Nitek is accused of killing has been a deputy in Rusk County for 1 1/2 years after seven years with another department. Nitek has never been a police officer.

      • Like Betty Shelby in OK that shot an unarmed black man with her prior criminal history and the other white female officer that made up a claim that a black man shot her and was exposed police depts have no problem hiring white criminals.

    • They are going to claim he is not white somehow just like they did with Michael Vance despite all of his family members being white on both sides when I looked him up and his jail records all saying he was a white male. The word is out. Whites are doing everything to avoid the fact that they are far more likely to kill and assault police but they want to you think it’s blacks hunting the cops when it’s really them.

  2. No surprise another white thug kills a cop. What is it now? Three cops killed by pale thugs in the past 10 days? Oh but remember folks it’s the blacks who are hunting police and notice this is not making national news..

  3. i bet this hunch back demonic blue eye pig skin cracker is relate to johnny after all we know most white are in breed sickos!!!!
