Father Calls Bullsh*t on Massachusetts Drag Race Police Shooting
Photo Illustration by Luis G. Rendon/The Daily Beast/Mechanics Cooperative BankOn Wednesday, federal prosecutors indicted Fall River, Massachusetts, Police Officer Nicholas M. Hoar for violating civil rights and making false reports after he allegedly beat a man in custody with a baton in the winter of 2020 and failed to report it.A little over three years before that incident, Hoar shot and killed 19-year-old Larry Ruiz Barreto while breaking up a drag race—claiming that he feared for his life after the man accelerated and pushed the officer onto the hood of a car. Hoar was cleared in that case by local prosecutors who concluded it was a justified use of force.Now, Ruiz Barreto’s father is calling Hoar’s federal indictment the tip of the iceberg on local police misconduct—and demanding prosecutors reopen a criminal probe of a nightmare he witnessed in person, and for which he is suing Hoar in federal court.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Indiana State PoliceAttorneys for the 50-year-old father of two named as a suspect in the 2017 murders of two teenage girls in Delphi, Indiana, have released a lengthy statement firing back at the evidence presented by prosecutors earlier this week, saying their client is innocent and remains “confused” over why he has been targeted, adding that he “has nothing to hide.”Obtained and posted by FOX59’s Angela Ganote, the statement from attorneys Brad Rozzi and Andrew Baldwin argues against the evidence prosecutors have cited—saying the unspent .40-caliber round discovered between the bodies of of Delphi teens Libby German and Abby Williams, which investigators say led them to the alleged killer, Richard Matthew Allen, is insufficient to prove he was involved in the murders.“Rick is a 50-year-old man who has never been arrested nor accused of a crime in his entire life,” the statement read. “He is innocent and completely confused as to why he has been charged with these crimes.”Read more at The Daily Beast.
