If you had any doubts whether the MSNBC cable television channel is run by and for liberals and Democrats, former Rand Paul official and MSNBC political analyst Elise Jordan erased them during her appearance on Thursday morning's MSNBC Live when she compared Donald Trump to a suicide bomber.
Jordan made the statement after host Craig Melvin indicated he wanted to talk with her about tweets made by the Republican president regarding whether any tapes exist of his conversations with former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey.
Melvin began the discussion by noting: “You might remember that the president of the United States tweeted a while back” that “ James Comey better hope there are no tapes” of such encounters.
“Just a few minutes ago,” the host noted, “the president hit us” with another online message:
With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea whether there are “tapes” or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings.
“Earlier in the broadcast,” Melvin stated, “I said the president was bluffing. I may have been, perhaps, too fair. It would seem as if the president may have been lying all along about the existence of these tapes.”
“No,” Jordan responded, “he’s just wasting -- he wasted the country’s collective time speculating over whether these tapes existed or not. It’s a sad day when you cannot depend on the president’s word.”
Is racism a problem in Vermont schools? The state's chapter of Black Lives Matter is on a mission to educate others.
"We're proving that it exists in our school systems," said Ebony Nyoni, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Vermont. "It's time to look at the systems that have been oppressing people for hundreds of years and to work towards changing them."
Organizers of Wednesday night's community information session said while only 15 percent of students in Burlington school district are black, they account for 32 percent of suspensions.
Burlington School District data showed students of color were almost three times more likely to be suspended than their white peers.
"The issue of these disparities is not in dispute. I mean, it's a reality that we have. And my focus is, OK, what do we do about it?” Burlington School District Superintendent Yaw Obeng said.
Obeng added that the issue was personal.
"I was a student of color, and, you know, I hope I can be a voice for those students in terms of what their needs are. But at the same time, we need to look at a strategy that includes all our community partners," he said.
Black Lives Matter Vermont told NBC5 they want to see restorative practices replace suspension policies by next school year.
The Burlington School District wrote in an email that they are committed to this transition, but it's unclear when this will start.
The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) said Wednesday that its members had voted to reject an invitation to meet with President Trump, claiming that the administration's policies are causing "legitimate alarm" among African-American lawmakers and their constituents.
CBC Chairman Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-La., wrote in a letter to Trump that proposals in the president's budget would "not only devastate the communities that we represent, but also many of the communities that supported your candidacy."
Richmond specifically cited proposed cuts to Pell Grants for low-income college students and eliminate the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, which helps seniors and others on fixed incomes heat their homes. He claimed those cutbacks would "destroy minority communities, all while your Administration and Congressional Republicans consider proposals to provide tax cuts for the richest Americans."
The chairman also criticized the Republican effort to repeal and replace ObamaCare, claiming the Affordable Health Care Act passed by the House last month would "strip millions of black people of their health care."
Richmond said the caucus had expressed its concern several times, including in eight letters and a document, but the administration has failed to respond. Trump and top members of the caucus met in March, but Richmond said there has been no follow-through on promises like helping black lawmakers meet with Trump's Cabinet.
"The CBC, and the millions of people we represent, have a lot to lose under your administration," Richmond wrote. "I fail to see how a social gathering would benefit the policies we advocate for."
London's Muslim Mayor who constantly bashes people who insult Islam has been exposed as nothing more than a jihadist himself by allowing those who propagate acts of terrorism against the constituents who elected him to fly their flags of hatred in the city he supposed to keep safe.
Listen to Sadiq Khan sidestep the question on whether Islamist flags should be allowed to fly in London.
If you are curious just how deranged a liberal truly is, take a look at this British liberal questioning on if white people are doing enough to stop terrorist attacks carried out by white people against Muslims. The simple fact this libtard isn't questioning whether Muslims are doing enough to stop terrorist attacks against natural born citizens of the countries their invading says everything you need to know about liberalism being a mental disorder.
She thinks white men are a bigger terror threat than Islamic jihadists. You have to try hard to be this stupid.
Swedish police have ceded control over 55 “no-go zones” to predominately Muslim criminal gangs.
An extensive report mapping out 55 no-go zones was released Oct. 24, showing where law enforcement has all but handed control to criminal gangs.
Officers frequently face outright attacks when trying to enter the areas, which is a step up from the previous problem with attacks on mailmen, fire trucks, ambulances and similar services. Fire trucks and ambulances had to wait for police escort to enter the areas, but now the police themselves need protection.
The no-go areas heavily coincide with the map of the 186 “exclusion areas” aka. crowded, predominantly Muslim immigrant ghettos, where education is low, employment is lower and the only local business thriving is drug dealing.
As the real law backs away, organized crime emerges to take its place. The police report notes “a wider clientel [in the areas] are increasingly turning to the criminal authorities for justice” in a Godfather-like fashion. Unofficial courts and punishments are often meted out according to the codes of the home cultures of the dominant gangs. The report also points out that there are vehicle checkpoints at the borders of some of these areas. The bad news is it’s not the police doing them; it’s the gangs securing home turf against law enforcement and rival gangs.
The gangs try to keep a semi-low profile in many areas so as not to interfere with the “business” of dealing drugs, protection rackets and similar illicit activity.
Others seek active confrontation with police to establish absolute dominance.
A pair of policemen in May were in pursuit of a suspect and unwisely entered the no-go zone of the southern city of Landskrona. Their car was rammed and the officers were forced out of the car. They were cornered by a crowd of some 50 hostile thugs and drew their weapons to hold them back and called for immediate backup.
Several nearby patrol cars responded to the call and sped towards the scene, only to be ordered to stop half a mile away — just outside the no-go border. The police commander didn’t send the backup units in, fearing escalation and all-out war. The cornered police officers were left to fend for themselves. As luck would have it, one of the officers knew a few residents who interfered and convinced the thugs to let them leave.
Walmart touts "Everyday Low Prices," but we asked its customers to support 'Everyday High Wages" instead. We posed as representatives of "15 for 15," a make-believe organization advocating that Walmart raise prices by 15% and use the extra cash to pay its low-skilled workers $15 per hour. The surcharge would be added to customer's bills at checkout, just like a gratuity at a restaurant. Not surprisingly few shoppers supported our cause. Even those who felt Walmart workers should be paid more did not want to pay higher prices themselves to make it possible. Those demanding higher wages for Walmart's workers should consider the importance of low prices to Walmart's customers.

Toronto 'Red Ryder Bandit' Points BB Gun At Mother And Child - Ontario, Canada
Police are appealing to the public for assistance identifying a so-called “group of thugs” responsible for as many as 10 armed robberies, including one in which a suspect pointed a BB gun at a woman and young child.
Police say that the robberies have taken place between March 14 and April 11 at fast food restaurants located in an area in and around Finch Avenue between Highway 27 and Weston Road.
According to Staff Inspector Mike Earl, the robberies have been carried out by one, two or three suspects.

In the robberies involving three suspects, Earl said that one of them enters the restaurant and removes a Red Ryder style BB gun from his pants before demanding money. The second suspect then vaults over the counter and begins removing cash from the register while the third suspect stands watch at the door, Earl says.
The staff inspector said that the robberies have been particularly brazen with a suspect grabbing a teller by the hair in one incident and pointing the BB gun at the “cowering” woman and child in another.
That woman was later robbed of her wallet in that robbery, Earl said.
“If you actually saw the child’s face you would see the fear in the child’s face with the rifle pointed at them,” Earl told reporters at a news conference on Thursday. “I am sure the mother and child will have some issues for a little while trying to get over this.”
Earl said that the suspects have only made off with a “small amount of cash” in each of the robberies.
Nonetheless, he said that the violent nature of some of the incidents is of great concern.
He also dubbed the suspects “loose lever losers” in reference to the type of BB gun they have used, which he noted can puncture skin and could even “cost someone an eye.”
“This should not be happening,” he said. “These guys have seen too many spaghetti westerns and it is almost like they are stage coach robberies with their masks and rifles.”
Earl said that investigators are unsure whether or not the suspects have used a getaway vehicle in the robberies and have “no other clues” other than surveillance camera footage.

Grass Valley, CA-- The Grass Valley Police Department released a body camera footage of two Grass Valley police officers stopping Man From Jumping Off a local Overpass. They wrote on their Facebook page: "Police Officers are often called upon in people’s most desperate moments. Tuesday afternoon a young man was contemplating ending his life by jumping off a local overpass. Officers arrived and spoke with him for several minutes, trying to get him to reconsider. The officers focused their efforts on gaining compliance without the need to use physical intervention. However after a period of time he suddenly tried to climb the fence and jump over to a busy highway below. By reacting quickly, the Officers were able to prevent a horrible tragedy and get the young man the crisis intervention services he needed. They also protected the motoring public from the possibility of serious traffic accident risks. **Only a portion of the video is shown here and the identity of the individual has been obscured. Please know that Grass Valley Police Department recognizes the sensitivity of these situations for the individuals, family, friends, and first responders involved.**"

Fred Warmbier, the father of North Korean captive Otto Warmbier, said at a press conference on Thursday that the Obama administration advised the family to keep quiet about his son’s ordeal.
While saying that stance didn’t get results, Warmbier said that the Trump administration worked hard to secure the release of his son.
“Last evening, we received a very nice phone call from President Trump who told us that Secretary of State Tillerson worked hard to bring Otto home,” Warmbier said.
Later in his press conference, Warmbier offered a damning look at the Obama administration’s foreign policy.
“When Otto was first taken, we were advised by the past administration to take a low profile while they worked to obtain his release,” he said. “We did so without result.”
“Earlier this year, Cindy [Warmbier] and I decided the time for strategic patience was over,” Warmbier added, repeating a line from the Trump administration.
Warmbier said that Ambassador Joseph Yun, under the direction of President Trump and his administration, helped secure the release of his son.
Otto Warmbier recently returned to the United States in a coma. His medical status is unclear.
The actor Johnny Depp is the latest American entertainment figure to suggest — however jokingly, ironically or obliquely — the killing of President Trump.
Speaking on Thursday at the Glastonbury arts festival in southwest England, Mr. Depp asked the audience, “Can you bring Trump here?”
The remark was met with booing and jeering, and he continued: “You misunderstand completely. When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? I want to clarify: I’m not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it’s been awhile, and maybe it’s time.”
The words were being interpreted as an allusion to the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth, an actor, in 1865.
Mr. Depp, who was introducing a screening of the 2004 film “The Libertine” — in which he played the womanizing poet John Wilmot, second earl of Rochester — acknowledged that his words would cause a storm.
“By the way, this is going to be in the press and it’ll be horrible,” he said. “It’s just a question; I’m not insinuating anything.”
Mr. Depp’s comments immediately drew rebukes, with his critics describing them as particularly distasteful and dangerous given their timing. A gunman, believed to be upset about Mr. Trump’s election, opened fire last week at members of the Republican congressional baseball team in a Washington suburb.
“Secret Service, we have video evidence of Johnny Depp threatening to assassinate President Trump. Please do something!” an account linked to Tennessee Republicans wrote on Twitter. Others suggested a boycott of Mr. Depp’s films, although supporters countered that the remarks had clearly been made in jest.

A Las Vegas man who was fatally shot by a police officer Tuesday hid in a bedroom closet before lunging at officers with an 8-inch butcher knife.
Metropolitan Police Department Assistant Sheriff Tim Kelly briefed reporters on the incident Thursday morning, saying officers responded to a western valley apartment complex after receiving calls about a domestic violence incident.
Kelly played a short clip at the briefing of a neighbor’s 911 call as well as footage from two officers’ body-worn cameras.
The Police Department identified the officer who fired his gun as Officer Kyle Prior, 28. Officers were dispatched to the Bella Vida Apartments complex, on South Cimarron Road and West Charleston Boulevard, at 12:14 a.m.
Tuesday. Kelly said the officers spent nearly 10 minutes knocking on the door of the apartment before a woman and a 4-year-old child answered. The woman told the officers there was no one else in the apartment, but officers suspected there was a man inside based on the 911 call.
The officers went inside the apartment to look for the man. Footage from the body-worn cameras shows the officers walking through the dark apartment by flashlight. “They could tell someone was inside the residence,” Kelly said. In the master bedroom’s walk-in closet, officers discovered Pedro Ramirez, 28, of Las Vegas, crouched behind some hanging clothes clutching a stainless steel-handled kitchen knife. The officers immediately issued commands for the man to come out and to drop the knife. Two officers fired their Tasers at the man, but he shrugged it off and ran out of the closet, brandishing the knife. Prior fired three rounds at Ramirez at 12:39 a.m., striking him with each round. Ramirez died at University Medical Center from multiple gunshot wounds. Metro said the man’s wife had visible injuries from a fight with her husband. She told officers Ramirez hid in the closet because he did not want to go to jail. Kelly said the department had responded to two previous domestic violence incidents involving Ramirez in 2016 and 2015. Prior has been placed on routine administrative paid leave as the shooting is investigated. This is the second deadly shooting involving the officer, who joined Metro in 2008 as a civilian employee and became an officer in 2012. In 2015, the Review-Journal reported that Prior, along with two other officers, shot and killed 32-year-old Thomas McEniry.

The near-daily unrest in Venezuela has culminated once again in the death of a protester. Demonstrations turned violent on Thursday as opposition supporters came under a hail of rubber bullets during their assault on an airbase. Soldiers fired from near point blank range as protesters attacked the fence outside La Carlota airbase in the wealthy east end of Caracas. A 22-year-old man named as David Jose Vallenilla died at a nearby hospital as a result of injuries he sustained during the protest. His death brings the total number killed during the riotous demonstrations that have ravaged Venezuela since the unrest began in April to 76. Hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans have taken to the streets to protest against a clampdown on the opposition, shortages of food and medicine, and President Nicolas Maduro’s plan to overhaul the constitution. Maduro says the violence is part of a foreign-led plot to oust him.
When is the last time you saw something that said “Limit 1 per person” and you took two? All the time right? Imagine doing that on Ellen! She caught this girl red handed. Ellen tested her audience members’ honesty with a hidden camera she set up in the Ellen Shop.
The top comment made his point for why this isn’t the weirdest thing in the world: “Maybe it’s not the most moral thing you could do, but… a thousand times better this, to be a street whore! It’s more…. I see it more moral to this, than to all those little women who mess with married men, become the lover to keep them and not have to work!” Others got the full package. Another person thought this would be a good way to say the economy. And that’s how easy it is how the good flow of money, the economy, so it must be the invisible hand, an individual gets what he wants and on the way is helping others to realize their ends,,, everyone happy!!
A video showing police officers allegedly "harassing a poor homeless man" near Central Station in Sydney has left hundreds of people furious after it was posted to social media. Keteilia Harris, who filmed the video, claims one of the police officers "punched the homeless man" before the video was taken. "Just witnessed this police officer harass a poor homeless man while he was 'hanging around' collecting his free dinner that lovely people were providing," Ms Harris wrote on Facebook. "Before this video the police officer punched him and asked him to move away 500 meters after calling him "a homeless piece of s***" whilst the man was asking the police officer why he's being sent away." NSW Police told 7 News Online the homeless man was behaving inappropriately. In the footage an officer can be seen grabbing the homeless man and pushing him up against a fence. The homeless man then hurls a racial slur at the police officer. A police officer in the video is heard saying "I'm going to write you a ticket". "What for?" the homeless man asks. "For offensive behaviour, offensive language," the police officer replies. "Where is the offensive behaviour?" the homeless man questions. "So here's what's going to happen - I have a ticket for offensive behaviour and i'll give you one more chance to move and if not, if not, shut up, shut up for f***'s sake," the police officer says as the man attempts to talk over the top of him. A NSW Police spokesperson said officers had to talk to the man twice. "About 7.40pm on Thursday, police officers attached to the police transport command spoke to a 57-year-old man who was allegedly abusing members of the public at Central Railway Station," a police spokesperson said. "The man was issued a move along direction but a short time later police had reason to speak with the man again. They will allege he was behaving in an offensive manner. The man was escorted from the location and will be issued with an infringement notice in relation to his behaviour." The spokesperson added that "the incident will be reviewed". Ms Harris said the homeless man had just received his dinner when police approached him. She described the incident as "disgusting". "He was in the middle of eating his provided dinner," she wrote. "This is the most disgusting thing I've ever witnessed first hand. If anyone recognises this police officer please let me know as I'd like to report this. I see this homeless man a lot when I'm on my way to uni and I always chat with him, he's not a bad guy at all." The video has received over 1000 comments on Facebook, more than 1200 shares and over 80,000 views. Comments on the video include "take his badge", "remove both officers from the force", "disgusting behaviour, this is not the typical police officer", and "no wonder cops don't get any respect". Police say they are investigating the incident.

Bizarre video footage shows a teacher smashing up the confiscated mobile phones of students in China. In an almost 'public execution' style, students from a secondary school in Guizhou were forced to watch their devices being completely destroyed on June 21. According to the report, the parents fully supported the school's actions. In the footage posted to Pear Video, an adult in a military style suit can be seen holding what appears to be a hammer.
Video footage has emerged of the moment the Bulgarian tall ship, Royal Helena, hit the docked replica ship, Nao Victoria, in The Netherlands. Both tall ships were in Oudeschild harbour, Texel Island, for the Ships of Discovery tour. The incident happened on Tuesday (20 June). The video footage shows the Royal Helena entering the port at speed. Unable to slow down, it ploughs into the port side of the docked Nao Victoria. Media reports suggest that both tall ships have sustained damage, although the vessels remain seaworthy. The Spanish registered Nao Victoria has damage to its port bulwark while the Bulgarian vessel has bow damage.
It was the Labor Day public holiday on St Quentin's Avenue in Claremont. Sam and a friend were walking home from getting a late night meal when two men approached, then an attack came out of nowhere. "I just see a fist, and hear a horrible sound," Sam's friend said of the horrific incident. "Both from the punch and when he hit the ground. It was horrible, it just got stuck in my head, it was like a watermelon crushing." Sam was unconscious for several minutes while his friends tried desperately to wake him. "I could have died," Sam said. " I'm very lucky I got away with the minor injuries that I have." Sam said he had never seen the two men before. The last thing he remembers is a man spitting at his feet before he was knocked out. Police are investigating claims the two men had been picking fights in the area before they set their sights on Sam, who suffered a concussion and bruising. Two and a half weeks after the attack, he still has severe headaches. The two men haven't been caught. Anyone with information is encouraged to call CRIME STOPPERS on 1800 333 000.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota is calling for an investigation into a police officer’s conduct shown in squad-car video footage of a 2016 arrest after a stop in southwest Minnesota. The ACLU is alleging excessive force by the officer — a 32-year-old graduate of Harding High School in St. Paul — who can be seen punching and kneeing the driver moments after he approaches the vehicle July 28 in Worthington. Law enforcement officials say the video shows only part of the incident. A criminal complaint against the driver alleges he aggressively swerved toward the officer after threatening other officers earlier that morning. The officer accused of excessive force is white; the driver, charged with assault, fleeing and driving without a license, is a Laotian-American man who was 21 at the time. In the video, released Thursday by the ACLU, the officer yells profanities as he approaches the vehicle with his handgun drawn and orders the driver to get out of the vehicle. The officer holsters his firearm, flings the door open, reaches into the car and tugs at the driver with both hands. He then delivers three upward knee blows toward the driver, as well as a right-hand punch. The driver is brought partially out of the car, and the officer delivers three more downward blows with his right hand, followed by a right elbow. The driver was identified by the ACLU as Anthony Promvongsa; the officer, dressed in jeans and a police vest, is identified by the ACLU as Buffalo Ridge Drug Task Force Agent Joe Joswiak. Joswiak, who grew up in St. Paul, could not be reached for comment. Another officer, in standard uniform, is visible in the video. The other officer, identified by the ACLU as Sgt. Tim Gaul, makes contact with the driver after Joswiak has brought Promvongsa to the ground. Joswiak pins Promvongsa’s neck to the ground with his left knee. The ACLU says Promvongsa was charged with multiple felonies in the incident and is awaiting trial. According to a news release by the ACLU: “This whole incident began when off-duty police officers accused Promvongsa of driving recklessly. The prosecutor upped the reckless-driving charges to assault with a deadly weapon — his car. Promvongsa denies any conduct that would warrant the type of brutal attack that occurred here.” Police and prosecutors issued a joint statement Thursday afternoon saying “the video, viewed in a vacuum, shows only a short segment of the incident.” Citing the ongoing case against Promvongsa, authorities said it was “inappropriate to comment further.” Court documents, however, allege that Promvongsa harassed two other officers beginning about 9:30 that morning before Joswiak attempted to pull him over. Promvongsa followed an off-duty officer so closely that the officer couldn’t see the hood of Promvongsa’s Honda Pilot, according to the criminal complaint; Promvongsa then pulled up alongside the officer’s car and swerved at it. When the officer came upon another off-duty officer, he pulled over, grabbed his pistol, and stepped out of his car. Promvongsa then raced past them, came back and told the officers to “stay there as he was going to go get his boys and come back to get them,” according to the complaint. The officers recognized Promvongsa and reported the incident to dispatch, which is when Joswiak got involved. Joswiak checked Promvongsa’s driving status and found his license was revoked and he had been ticketed a week earlier. Joswiak was looking for the Honda Pilot when the vehicle appeared, approached and then swerved toward Joswiak’s unmarked car. Joswiak said he recognized Promvongsa from previous contacts, according to the complaint, and he believed Promvongsa recognized his car. Joswiak turned around and activated his lights, but Promvongsa did not stop, according to the complaint. Gaul joined the pursuit. Promvongsa pulled over about a mile later, but did not comply with Joswiak’s orders to get out of the car, according to the complaint. According to the ACLU, Promvongsa stated: “I had no idea what was going on when I was approached and attacked by this officer. I did not even have the opportunity to take off my seat belt before I was literally blindsided with this unnecessary attack. I immediately pulled over for the Worthington squad car and before I knew what was happening I was beat and ripped from my vehicle. “I know I am not the first person to have this type of traumatic experience with law enforcement in Worthington. This type of violence with community members has to stop. This encounter was demoralizing and has left me scared of future interactions with the police.” Promvongsa, who is represented by a public defender, disputes the officers’ version of events leading up to the stop. He obtained the squad car video and brought it to the attention of the ACLU’s Greater Minnesota Racial Justice Project in Mankato this month, according to interim legal director John Gordon. The ACLU is not representing Promvongsa, and no civil case has been filed, but “we view all legal options being on the table,” Gordon said. Teresa Nelson, executive director of the ACLU of Minnesota, stated: “Agent Joswiak’s use of force against Anthony Promvongsa is disturbing and completely unnecessary. We are calling for an investigation of Agent Joswiak’s behavior and for him to be held accountable for his brutal attack on Anthony Promvongsa, up to and including termination and prosecution. “Thus far Agent Joswiak has received no punishment for this abhorrent treatment of Anthony. This sends a message that the department condones the officer’s behavior, which it should not.” U.S. Rep. Tim Walz, a Democrat representing Minnesota’s 1st Congressional District, said he found the video “deeply disturbing.” “I have had a chance to speak with local officials and leaders in the community and believe all parties are passionate in pursuing justice,” Walz said in a statement. “I will continue closely monitoring this situation. Addressing situations like this one in our communities and in Minnesota is an absolute necessity and we are all in this together.”
The 47-year-old went to The Muskham Ferry, North Muskham, after a youth football tournament on Saturday with his wife, their three children and three dogs for something to eat. The family were sitting outside at what they say is always a trouble-free, family-orientated pub. “There was a group of five people sitting on the wall using unsavoury language. They had clearly been drinking for some time,” said the man’s wife. She said the language from one of them became worse when a dog went over to sniff one of their dogs. “I asked him to stop swearing in front of the children — just that,” she said. “I wasn’t rude or confrontational. I just said it wasn’t necessary.” The woman said the man came over, “towered above them” and threatened to kill her husband if she embarrassed him like that again. “My nine-year-old was sobbing,” said the woman. “He was inconsolable. “My husband went into the pub to get the manager but he was pursued by this man. When my husband was at the bar he was turned around by this man and headbutted in the face.” The woman said the other four in the group held him back from striking out again, while other customers went to their defence. The police were called and arrived in minutes, but by that time the group had left. The woman said police were directed by locals to a scooter rally being held nearby, but failed to find the assailant. She said: “It was a dreadful experience. It was a vicious, ferocious attack. “I have never witnessed anything like it and I never want to again. “My husband did nothing wrong and that headbutt could have killed him. You hear about one blow being enough to kill.” The husband was left with injuries to the outside and inside of his mouth and his cheekbone. Mr Dan Quigley, who manages The Muskham Ferry, said: “We don’t condone that sort of behaviour in any way. “The group responsible we do not believe to be local. “We don’t have those sort of incidents here, which was why it was so surprising that it took place. “We work with the police to prevent such acts and will assist them wherever we can in the investigation.” Nottinghamshire Police said they were called to The Muskham Ferry at 9pm on Saturday. Investigations continue. Anyone with information should call Newark Police on 101. The Advertiser was unable to contact the organisers of the scooter rally for comment.
