Local Black Lives Matter Chapter Defends Alleged Prank Pulled On Stockton Officer. Obama's children!
Race of the officer unmentioned!
STOCKTON -- Forget the caramel sauce or whipped cream, this is something no one wants in their coffee.
The “Stockton Police Department, Corruption Reporting Page” on Facebook posted a picture of a man and his family with a message that reads, “We are happy to report that today this officer from the Stockton Police Department got to have coffee at Starbucks...served with a side of spit,” adding, "They even gave it to him with a smile and a nice comment.”
The Stockton Police Department tells FOX40 they were called out to investigate the incident at the Starbucks on Waterloo Road on Wednesday night. They wouldn’t go on camera but a police spokesperson said they found no evidence that an employee spit in the officer’s coffee.
Starbucks also denies the allegation, saying in a statement, “We are proud of our relationship with the Stockton Police Department, who initially notified us of this rumor. We can confirm there is absolutely no truth to this post, and we are disappointed with the suggestion.”
Despite all of this, the Black Lives Matter Stockton chapter claims the post is 100 percent true. They told FOX40 off camera that a barista who wants to remain anonymous spit in the officer’s coffee because they were upset. They said a family member had a problem with the officer in the post and they also mentioned that their complaints regarding race related issues to the department are not being taken seriously.
The Police Department said they cannot comment on complaints related to their officers.
But Black Lives Matter is adamant, claiming there was spit in the coffee writing to us, “It really happened...we gave you all the proof we could without throwing someone under the bus.”
The official Black Lives Matter website does not list a Stockton chapter.
The group also claimed that there’s a diner in Stockton that does the same thing when officers visit. They would not tell us which diner and they added that some media members should also be cautious of where we buy our food.

The sister of a woman murdered more than 30 years ago in North Carolina says she and her family fully support the military’s planned execution of the woman’s killer, a former soldier.
The execution would be the first by the US military in more than a half-century. A Kansas federal judge earlier this month lifted the stay of execution for the former Fort Bragg soldier, Ronald A. Gray, who is being held at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
Gray was convicted in military and civilian courts of raping several women and killing four, including 18-year-old Tammy Cofer Wilson. He was sentenced to death in a Fort Bragg court-martial in 1988.
Wilson’s sister, Honey Rosalie Schlehuber of Chickasha, Oklahoma, told the Fayetteville Observershe would like to witness Gray’s execution and that her entire family has struggled since the murder.
US District Judge J. Thomas Marten last week sided with the US government in denying Gray’s bid to block the military from pressing ahead with the execution by lethal injection.
The military carried out its last execution at Fort Leavenworth in 1961 when it hanged Army Pvt. John Bennett for raping and trying to kill an 11-year-old Austrian girl.
No known execution date has been set for Gray. Though Gray’s attorneys have said in recent court filings that they planned to ask military courts to intervene, the status of those appeals was unclear. A message left by the Associated Press with Gray’s capital public defender, Tim Kane, was not immediately returned.
Gray was convicted and ordered condemned in military court in 1988 for two murders and three rapes in the Fayetteville, North Carolina, area while stationed at Fort Bragg, where he reached the rank of specialist and was a cook. He pleaded guilty in civilian courts to two other killings and five rapes and was sentenced to eight life terms, three of them consecutive.
Gray, 51, is among six people on the US military’s death row, according to the Death Penalty Information Center, a nonprofit research group that opposes capital punishment. Those inmates, whose appeals are pending, include Nidal Hasan, an Army psychiatrist who killed 13 people in a 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood in Texas.
The president has the power to commute a military death sentence, and no service member can be put to death unless the president signs off on it, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.
The commandant of Fort Leavenworth’s disciplinary barracks where Gray is held is the one who would schedule the date and time of the execution, according to the federal government’s court filings.
The federal appeal was filed in 2008 for Gray, whose attorneys claimed he had an ineffective lawyer in his earlier case and lacked the mental capacity to stand trial. Gray’s appellate attorneys also have questioned the military’s jurisdiction over the case.
In November 2008, another Kansas federal judge, Richard Rogers, issued a stay for Gray two weeks before his scheduled execution.
In successfully pressing for Marten to lift the stay, federal prosecutors argued in a court filing Dec. 9 that Gray “seems to believe that he is entitled to an indefinite federal stay of execution while he exhausts his remedies in the military courts. This is not the law.”
Various factors help explain the absence of military executions in recent decades. Condemned inmates may appeal their death sentences to military and civilian courts, potentially delaying an execution for decades, as in Gray’s case.
In 1983, the armed services’ highest court ruled that the military death penalty law was constitutionally flawed because it did not include “aggravating” factors to help jurors decide which cases deserve capital punishment. That ruling resulted in a number of death sentences being converted to life terms.
But the next year, President Ronald Reagan reinstated the military’s capital punishment, defining who is subject to the death penalty in the armed forces through an executive order. The US Supreme Court in 1996 upheld Reagan’s action as constitutional.
In 1997, the Uniform Code of Military Justice — the military’s modern-day legal system — was amended to add a life sentence without the possibility of parole as an alternative to the death penalty, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.
In October, the US Supreme Court said it would not hear a challenge to the death penalty for military members, rejecting an appeal from a former soldier sentenced to death for killing two fellow soldiers and injuring 14 others in an attack in Kuwait in 2003.

A Michigan man “snapped” when his 5-year-old stepdaughter said she wanted something to eat — stabbing the little girl to death, and then setting her body on fire, a court heard this week.
Thomas McClellan, 25, of Holt, admitted that he knocked Luna Michelle Younger to the ground, sat on her hips and stabbed her in the chest on Nov. 1 after she wouldn’t leave his room, Detective Chuck Buckland of the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office testified in a preliminary hearing Thursday, according to reports.
McClellan then wrapped the girl’s lifeless body in blankets, dumped alcohol on it and lit it on fire, Buckland said, according to the Lansing State Journal.
During the hearing in the 55th District Court, a medical examiner said Luna was stabbed at least five times.
McClellan is charged with murder, first-degree child abuse and first-degree arson in the gruesome death of his stepdaughter at the family’s Keller Road home. He faces up to life in prison if convicted of the crime.
When he finally found her body, “I knew the victim had expired,” Drolett testified.
Although he knew she was already dead, Drolett passed her body through the window and instructed another firefighter to “very lightly” perform CPR, he said.
“Based on the situation [I] felt that would show [the mother] that we were attempting some effort,” he said during testimony, the newspaper reported.
As McClellan was brutally murdering his stepdaughter, the girl’s mother, Victoria McClellan, was at work, and she and her husband had been “bickering” earlier in the day, she told officials.
She convinced McClellan to surrender to police and he was taken into custody about four hours after the initial 911 call.
Supposed retaliation measure is not actually happening

A&E has canceled its KKK documentary series after it was discovered that show participants received payment.
On Friday, the network stated that it would change the name from “Generation KKK” to “Escaping the KKK,” and partnered with the ADL and racial justice organization Color of Change to create town hall meetings after initial controversy.
By Saturday, A&E announced it would not air the program because it “learned last night from the third-party producers … that cash payments — which we currently understand to be nominal — were made in the field to some participants in order to facilitate access … these payments are a direct violation of A&E’s policies and practices.”
The show was to be a documentary on so-called “anti-hate extractors.”
The Democrat-Hollywood-Left have removes all restraints on civility. Petulant self indulgent children...like father like son.

Charlie Sheen is facing a lot of heat for a tweet he wrote Wednesday night in which he asked God to take President-elect Donald Trump next.
His tweet, which was seemingly in response to the recent deaths of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, said, “Dear God; Trump next, please!”
The Twitterverse immediately slammed Sheen for his tweet, calling the actor a “scumbag” and a “useless cockroach.”
Sheen has yet to respond to the backlash. His tweet is pinned to the top of his Twitter profile.
A rep for Sheen did not immediately return FOX411’s request for comment.
Sheen is by far not the first celebrity to face heat for taking aim at Trump. Alec Baldwincalled him “the most reviled candidate in our history” and Madonna likened Trump’s win to the feeling one gets when someone dies.
Former “House” star Lisa Edelstein came under fire when she tweeted, “RIP Alan Thicke. Seems like everyone is checking out before the Trumpacolypse.”
Robert De Niro called Trump “stupid” and a “punk” and said he would like “to punch him in the face,” but he has since softened his tone.
After receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom, De Niro said: “I would only say that we’re all hoping, waiting and hoping, that [Trump] will lead the country in a way that’ll benefit everyone and benefit our neighbors around the world.”
