In 2016 Michael Jordan gave remarks encouraging unity and respect of all people and the law enforcement officers who hold the responsibility of serving all. Jordan donated $1M each to the Institute for Community-Police Relations and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Both donations supported ensuring justice and improving policing. Thank you Michael for the words of wisdom, supporting officers, and ultimately loving your country and working toward making it better. 🇺🇸 … See MoreSee Less
His father was murdered on July 23, 1993 during a carjacking and they found his body 11 days later in a swamp. His killer was Daniel Green an 18 year old who went on a crime spree. Pleaded no contest to two armed robberies and the carjacking and murder of his father. I'm sure this violence and death of so many innocent lives is impacting him.
The full article:
This should be considered a call for the Placer county sheriff's department to actively RECRUIT RECRUIT RECRUIT officers of color. It is time to diversify your Department.
thank you Mr. Jordon for all you do for your country. i feel however it's not getting "worse", it's going to hell in a hand basket. we need better leaders from washington. leaders not afraid to make hard decisions. and yes more police. Good, honest police. to protect and serve.
Thank you, Michael. It time we hear from more Leaders with common sense.
He is a class act. MJ and the Jordan Brand in 2020: “Black Lives Matter shouldn’t be a controversial statement” and donates 100 million to orgs dedicated to racial equality, social justice and education in the wake of George Floyd ❤️
Stay strong the silent majority supports the Blue! ❤️
Love him and so thankful you’re receiving the support you deserve.
I think this is great but wasn’t this in 2016?
Thank you Michael Jordan.
I agree with him, things are getting worse.
A TRUE AMERICAN
We love Michael Jordan
Finally something worth reading about a celebrity
I was raised the same, Michael Jordan! Every word in your statement mirrors my sentiments. Thank you for using your stature in the public for continued GOOD work. I hope people are reading and listening.
Awesome Mr Jordan. You had smart parents 👏👍
You are a great man raised by great parents. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Michael Jordan always been a classy guy, hope some the athletes take a lesson from him on what a true champion represent.
Michael thank you. Many of us were raised to love and respect good people of every color and nationality.
I would be interested to learn how his $2M donations were spent by each organization, and any follow up evaluation as to its efficacy. Just saying.
Lots of famous billionnaires throwing $ at causes, getting lots of press.
Where's the follow up, equally important, & why does it never get the same press. Hmmmmm.
Thank you sir. Coming from you means allot
Same here. My momma would of whooped my a$$ if I disrespected any other person, period.
He is a great human being
“Without him we would have lost two crucial battles, perhaps the War, and with it our freedom. He was truly a One-Man Army.” – George Washington
260 years ago an American legend was born. A native of Portugal, Pedro “Peter” Francisco found himself as an orphan in Virginia at the age of 5 after being kidnapped by pirates and abandoned in the New World.
Peter was taken in to work on a Virginia plantation and was treated as a slave. Peter grew to a massive 6’6 260lbs and happened to be present for the legendary “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!” speech by Patrick Henry.
Peter joined the fight against the British at the young age of 16. He quickly earned a reputation of being a force to be reckoned with by slaying many redcoats in battle, despite being wounded.
Peter is said to have saved cannon from capture after the defeat at Camden. Peter used his hulk strength and shouldered the 1,100 pound weapon, carrying it to safety.
Prior to the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, Peter was complaining the standard sword he had was small like a toothpick. Washington remedied the situation and had a six foot broadsword with a five foot blade forged for Peter. The sword would be similar to that of William Wallace when he fought against the English. Peter would kill eleven redcoats during the battle before being severely wounded in the leg.
While recovering back in Virginia, Peter was confronted at a tavern by nine British dragoons. They attempted to arrest Peter, which was a bad choice. Peter was ordered to relinquish the silver buckles on his shoes. Peter told the King’s men to get them themselves. The men tried and the fight was on. Peter took a soldier’s sword and killed the man. He managed to fight and drive off the other eight. 100 men were sent to capture Peter, but he was able to evade them successfully.
By the war’s end, Peter had been wounded six times while fighting to help create a nation free of tyranny.
On this day, we honor a legendary American warrior and patriot.

Thank you for that bit of history. If only our schools spent more time trying to teach the legendary heroics of the men that founded our country, rather than despising it. We’d be in a much better place.
You can honor a local hero by renting the movie The Outpost. It's a true story of honor,bravery and brotherly love and one of them a local boy named Joshua Hardt
This great History of our country should be know by all American people. Thank you to all the solders and police officers who fight for our safety at home. We love you all.
Love this piece of history!! Need more information about our heroes that made AMERICA BEAUTIFUL GREAT COUNTRY!!!
God Bless him and thank him for his Service Amen 🙏
A great history lesson that I was never taught! Thanks for sharing!
Great part of history. Unsung heroes. I’m sure the left would find a way to discredit this man.
Our heritage jas been built on the blood of many brave souls from just as many different walks of life. It dishonors these people when people with no knowledge of the sacrifice try to destroy it.
Love the history! One of my ancestors fought with Washington. Maybe he knew Mr. Francisco.
What a Honor it is to hear this peace of history. This is something the younger generation know.
Wow. That is a piece of history I never heard. Thank you. We could use a few heroes like him today.
Quick, read it before it offends someone.
🇺🇸🇺🇸😁 so why have I not heard of this before now? Such a brave soul💖
WOW wish he was here with us now!
I agree this is beautiful. We need a statue!!!!!
If anyone in Hollywood had a brain they would make a movie or series based on him, and others like him. 🇺🇸💪
What a great story. Yes let’s build a statue!
Let’s build a statue!
There's a great YouTube channel called The History Guy that posts interesting, little known info like this.
I never knew this. History that effect all even today.
Another one I had never heard about.
Wow, I’m Portuguese and I’ve never heard of him before.
loved this!! Thank you! Statue!!
What an amazing story!
Refreshing HISTORY 👍
The violence needs to stop. Mob mentality and cancel culture is making it impossible to stand up and discuss our reality. Our reality is, our children are now becoming the victims of this new era of lawlessness. From this week alone the following children were slain:
San Francisco-Jace Young (6),
Los Angeles-(Unreleased) (13),
Atlanta-Secoriea Turner (8),
Seattle-Antonio Mays Jr. (16),
Hoover-Royta De’Marco Giles (8),
Washington DC-Davon McNeal (11),
Chicago-Natalie Wallace (7).
Where are the protests for these young innocent lives? Where is the media coverage to hold groups accountable? This is what we mean by ALL LIVES MATTER, EVERY ONE OF THEM. Not just the ones that fit a political agenda. We call on our community leaders to denounce this era of rising crime.
Pray for these little angels and their loved ones. And join us in saying ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

More deaths from suicide than covid right now too! The libtard asshats only care about what helps their election and not about the people or they would have BEEN doing something about it for decades!
Not sure how I became aware of this page, but you people are awesome! I stand with Placer County & their Sheriff’s Department
Well I for one believe when it comes to writing and losing and someone dies as a result of their cruel actions mentality they should all be held accountable for accessories to murder charged as such! Thank you for sharing, and as a retired health care professional, I truly believe all lives matter. That's the way we were created.
Exactly! Where is the outrage from these groups who have been making outrageous demands? Where is the media coverage? If it doesn't suit the agenda…well… Just breaks my heart ❤.
Our Law Enforcement Officers are Keepers of the Peace and Protectors of our most vulnerable citizens. 💙
Thank you for sharing Placer County Deputy Sheriffs Assoc. folks we need to share. While like it is great let’s get this message out there. Enough !!!
Maybe we should start protesting we need more police. Go to Aldi's neighborhoods where they are really affected by having nobody around to help them and ask them to go out and protest for more police asked them to back the rest of us and take these damn politicians down
It’s pretty gross that you use their images to promote your rhetoric.
Why don’t you join us in saying enough is enough to gun violence against victims like these innocent kids? They were all shot. Join the local Moms Demand Action or March For Our Lives networks. Lend your voice to responsible and regulated gun ownership.
Unfortunately the people that this message needs to reach are the thugs/murderers who are committing the evil acts. Our elected officials couldn’t care less about any of these precious lives that were taken. Where do “We the People” start? 😡💔😢
Oh this is so tragic! Our police need to be allowed to restore law and order. So very sorry! God be with these families and our law enforcement officers trying to do their job! ❤️🙏🇺🇸
I think the 13 year old was from Southern California in a town called Pico Rivera. The children in this family were carjacked by a violent criminal who was released from jail because of the COVID19. This should not have happened… 😢
Most of them wit the guns have nothing but hate inside.
They know nothing about our Country except the negative. They dont know how to take time to learn or understand the good.
I'm so sad for the innocents who pay with their lives for someone else's ignorance.
May God have mercy on us.
We all know these protests have nothing to do with the safety of Blacks or Browns, Yellow, White or polka dot. It's an anti law and order agenda to force Communism into this country. The sad part about it that while there is much talk against it, nothing is being done to stop it.
All violence needs to stop! I am so tired of the media making this about one thing. My heart breaks for these kids that don’t have voice. Let’s love everyone! ❤️
If they would make the people leave. The streets the protest should be over with they are partying. And see what they can get away with because every. Body is scared because their so many of them
The protesters are not a mob nor lawless. There are destructive rioters but these are for the most part not doing these killings. Trying to lump all the groups together is irresponsible of you.
God save the beautiful children. All children. All races and genders. All neighborhoods and classes. Thank you for standing for truth and justice!
Enough is enough, these children right here, might have been the voice for change, that would have made a difference. Their voice was silenced and now we'll never know.
it's a crying shame. i see no protest. i see terrorist and thugs murders and arsonist and thieves !! they've separated the united states. the dems and libs are responsible….
I agree ALL LIVES MATTER.
It blows my mind when you watch LIVE PD or any other reality cop show and a man is killed in public view over a drug deal and NO ONE, AND I MEAN NO ONE who WITNESSED it talks! When asked questions by cop trying to solve this murder…you can hear crickets chirp because “no one saw anything” so I guess his life didn’t matter! Regardless if he was a drug dealer or not..it’s still a MURDER. No riots over that life!
I just want to understand why there is no outrage fromBLMor any Democrats on the murdering of these innocent children do their black lives not matter
Praying for these little ones and all little ones in danger. 🙏🙏🙏ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!! We need to end the violence.
Stand Tall America the children must be saved🇺🇸
Yes every single police Department should actively RECRUIT RECRUIT RECRUIT people of color to become sworn officers.
The first step is to get rid of this Governor. If every first responder, family/friends of first responders signed petition to recall Newsom we could take that first step. Official recall Newsom2020 website has petitions you can print, fill out, and send in. I will pay the postage.
This week Atlanta Officer Max Brewer was released from the hospital and returned home. Max had suffered two broken legs from being struck by an ATV during a protest in Atlanta last month. Max underwent surgery and accrued a medial bill of over $200,000. Luckily through a GoFundMe account, help from the community and people like YOU the bill was able to be covered.
Join us in wishing Max a welcome home and continued recovery!
🇺🇸 🚔 … See MoreSee Less
This man is a daily hero and does not deserve to have ANY medical bills. His community should be joyful that they have such a dedicated individual protecting them
Thank you for your service God bless all police officers I back the blue. God bless you I pray you make a full recovery and hope they charge the guy that hit you with attempt to murder.and that he goes to jail for many years.
His life matters. I am glad he made it home. Thank you officer Max Brewer for showing all of us your strength. Keep doing the work to make a full recovery. 💙
Welcome Home Sir. I wish you a full recovery. I can only hope the driver of the ATV will face charges for Assault with a deadly weapon or something Much Greater.
This is a workers comp injury, absolutely no reason he should be liable for any of the fees incurred. The agency and city is responsible.
Wonderful! Thank God! Officer Brewer is a hero to be respected. Pray his recovery continues. God bless him and his family, and the enforcement community! We are proud of all our officers!! 🙏🙏❤️❤️🇺🇸
Why would he have any medical expenses? What kind of health benefits does his job provide? That is ridiculous!
This is very sad and we wish him well. The $200,000 was the fundraising amount, not the hospital bill.
I don’t know for sure but I figure Atlanta police have a strong union and very good healthcare insurance so we can hope at least the medical bills should be already covered.
Worker’s Compensation would cover his continued wages after FMLA runs out.
Here’s the link to donate if you like:
welcome home Officer Brewer, I'm glad your long hospital stay is over, and hope that you recover physically before long. Stay safe.
I’m so happy that Officer Max Brewer is back home from the hospital. We wish him the very best and a fully recovery from his surgery. So very sad that the men and women in blue are continued getting hurt, they give their lives for us and we are so thankful and grateful for that. Maybe someday people learned to live in peace and respect each other for what we are and learn to ❤️ and not hate because of the color of their skin or religion!!
This is so wonderful to hear he is recovering from the accident. We pray for a full recovery and many well wishes. Stay strong! 💙💙
Wondering why he would have so much on medical bills? Insurance is good and it should have been workman’s comp.
glad though he is recovering and doing well.
Seems like city should be paying for his medical…. on official business … how come media did not report this? Praying for you officer.. hope you are whole soon💝✝️🙏🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🙋♀️
His medical bills may be covered but there are lots of miscellaneous expenses when anyone is hospitalized that long. Let’s take joy in his recovery and let his department, his labor union and family work it out.
God bless.why did he not have insurance from the police dept?
$200k for injuries incurred while on duty? Why is this even possible? Our LE personnel should never have to endure that pain as well. Hope he recovers fully.
I have been praying for you and your family all along the way. God be with you Officer Brewer.
Welcome home Officer Brewer. Continued prayers for a complete recovery. Thank you for your service and sacrifice 💙👮🏾
Americans “Back the Blue”. From my family to Officer Brewer we wish for a complete recovery and Thank You for your service to your community.
Praise the Lord that you're recovering from that horrible incident…. that should have never happened….. praying for 100 percent healing….. XOXO
Thank you for your service! 🙏🏻💙 Wishing you continued health and recovery Officer Brewer!
I would think if he was on duty workers comp should pay the bill
There is simply no way a public employee can accrue $200,000 in medical bills. The most I can see is a yearly deductible of $3000 if he is on a PPO plan.
Hang in there. There is a silent majority out here pulling for you!
So glad your home , what happened to you is horrible, the ones that did this to you aren't who we are
Thank you for everything you do
