A New Jersey police officer who was fired after she protected a suspect from being beaten by officers has won her job back.
Gordon Van Gilder, a 72-year-old retired schoolteacher in New Jersey, faces a 10-year prison sentence for possessing an unloaded 18th-century flintlock pistol in his car.
Mr. Van Gilder, a collector of 18th-century memorabilia, said he had the gun unloaded and wrapped in a cloth in the glove compartment of his vehicle when he was pulled over in November by a Cumberland County sheriff’s deputy for a minor traffic violation, according to a video posted last week by NRA News.
A new bill would force schools to teach students how they should interact with police officers. Under the proposed legislation, Bill A4130, part of the Social Studies curriculum for New Jersey schools would include a requirement to learn “instructions” for students to speak to police in the ways the State deemed “appropriate.”
The Social Studies Core Curriculum Content Standards would include “the role and responsibilities of a law enforcement official in providing for public safety” and “an individual’s responsibilities to comply with a directive from a law enforcement official.”
A JPMorgan Chase associate and his wife were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide in Closter, New Jersey on Friday evening.
According to the Bergen County prosecutor John Molinelli, Michael Tabacchi, 27, allegedly killed his wife, Iran Pars Tabacchi, 41, who also went by "Denise."
"Autopsy on Closter couple shows wife died from strangulation and single stab wound to chest. Husband died from self inflicted stab chest," Molinelli Tweeted.
There was a gun in the glove compartment of the car, but neither the car driver nor the passenger had any threatening behavior or any attempts to use it.
The man had both of his hands raised in the air, when he was executed at close range.
BRIDGETON, N.J. (AP) — With the dashboard camera in their cruiser rolling, police pulled a Jaguar over for running a stop sign on a dark night. But things suddenly turned tense when one of the officers warned his partner that he could see a gun in the glove compartment.
Screaming over and over "Don't you f---ing move!" and "Show me your hands!" at the man in the passenger seat, the officer reached into the car and appeared to remove a silver handgun.
Then, the passenger, despite being warned repeatedly not to move, stepped out of the Jaguar, his hands raised about shoulder level.
"This is not a negotiation. Do I sound like I'm negotiating with you?"
When you hear those words spoken by a police officer, their intention seems unmistakable. They mean: "Do what I tell you or I'll arrest you."
This, indeed, is what happened when 23-year-old Andrew Flinchbaugh filmed the aftermath of a single-vehicle accident in Ocean County, N.J.

I live in New Jersey, but travel a lot because I work in the music business. My car still has the Ron Paul Revolution bumper sticker in the back bumper of my car. I still have people approach me and sometimes it gives me time to open some minds in the process.
I recently went back to college to get my masters degree. I always drive my car to the nearby campus where a ton of students are at. I get in a lot of conversations and even get asked about the bumper sticker.
I have no where else to say this but here on the stern of the ark shouting at the wake it leaves as it plows thru the water.
I hear things like " This nation was founded on christian principals"
