A suspect in the fatal shooting of an Orlando police officer was captured Tuesday after a week-long manhunt, authorities said. The Orlando Police Department tweeted Tuesday night that 41-year-old Markeith Loyd, left, was in custody, ending a manhunt that began with the Jan. 9 fatal shooting of Lt. Debra Clayton, right, outside a Wal-Mart store. Local television stations showed Loyd had a bloodied face when a half-dozen officers and deputies took him into police headquarters.

Video of a bloodied suspect wanted in the murder of an Orlando police officer has emerged as he was apprehended after a nine-day manhunt on Tuesday evening.

The Orlando Police Department tweeted Tuesday night that 41-year-old Markeith Loyd was in custody, ending a laborious search that began with the January 9 fatal shooting of Lt. Debra Clayton outside a Walmart store.

Loyd was wanted in connection to the murder of his pregnant ex-girlfriend, and shot dead Lt. Clayton when she spotted and approached him. Another officer, Deputy Norman Lewis, was killed in a motorcycle accident when he joined in the manhunt for Loyd.

Local television stations showed Loyd with a bloodied face when a half-dozen officers and deputies took him into police headquarters, as he told a crowd that authorities had ‘beat him up’.

Police Chief John Mina tweeted confirmation of the arrest, stating: ‘Captured and wearing Lt. Debra Clayton’s handcuffs.’

  • Alexis Manigo, 18, gave her first interview since it was revealed that she had been abducted from a Jacksonville, Florida hospital hours after she was born 
  • The teenager said that she does not want to see Gloria Williams, the woman who raised her for the past 18 years, sent to prison 
  • ‘She made one mistake, but I was loved. From that one mistake I was given the best life,’ said Manigo
  • Manigo met with her birth parents, Craig Aiken and Shanara Mobley, for the first time last week
  • She will not reveal when she learned that she had been kidnapped for fear of incriminating Williams 
  • Arika Williams, a friend and ‘half-sister’ to Manigo, said in an interview on Wednesday that the teenager learned the truth two years ago

The South Carolina teenager who was snatched from a Florida hospital when she was just a newborn broke her silence on Wednesday morning, saying that she does not want to see the woman who allegedly abducted her sent to prison.

‘I understand what she did was wrong, but just don’t lock her up and throw away the key,’ said Alexis Manigo, who appeared remarkably poised in a sit-down with ABC News.

She was referring to Gloria Williams, the woman she believed to be her mother for the past 18 years who is now accused of kidnapping her just hours after she was born.

‘She loved me for 18 years, she cared about me for 18 years. I just want people to realize that.’

Manigo then added: ‘She made one mistake, but I was loved. From that one mistake I was given the best life.

‘I had everything I ever needed, wanted, I had love especially. There is no price you can put on the love that was given to me.’

Later in the interview she said of Williams: ‘I still think of her as mom, she will always be “Mom.”‘

‘When their Anointed One lost the election, big television news networks and primary newspapers coined the term “fake news” because they were angry at alternative media for eroding deep into their domain. It was time to expose these fakers because audiences were fleeing to alternatives to establishment media as certainly as they fled to alternatives to establishment politicians.

Without a doubt there is a ton of fake news on alternative media sites, which often publish what works for them without much fact checking. So, to launch a war on their competition, the mainstream media employed their standard sound-byte strategy that has worked well for them in the past. They simultaneously started circulating the new talking point “fake news” to try to stop the migration of audiences toward alternative news sites. It was time to point out how they, the mainstream media, do a superior job of editing out the baloney for you.’

As previously (and now extensively) reported here at The Daily Sheeple, copious warning signs coming out of DC signal that Friday’s inauguration will be anything but a peaceful transition to power. Whenever the inauguration is brought up, words like riot, violence, and chaos aren’t too far behind.

Secret Service is now saying they are gearing up for a ceremony unlike any they have ever overseen. Over 100 protest groups are now scheduled to attend, and ads for paid agitators have gone up in two dozen cities across the country.

On top of that, it has been reported that large weapons caches have been found stashed around DC… not something you hear every day (or ever… when have we ever heard that?).

Even though the entire DC police department was recently fitted with body cameras — body cameras which have shown in studies to deter police violence, just by the way — now it is being reported that DC police will not have their body cameras on during the inauguration protests.’

‘The United States is increasing airdrops of weapons, ammunition and other equipment to foreign-backed militant forces in the northeastern Syrian city of Raqqah, according to a report.

“Our expanded precision airdrop capability is helping ground forces take the offensive to (Daesh) and efforts to retake Raqqah,” Gen. Carlton Everhart, commander of the US Air Force’s Air Mobility Command, was quoted by USA Today as saying.

The Air Force carried out a total of 16 airdrop missions in Syria last year; six of those were in December alone, the report said.

Officials say the airdrops are meant to boost the capabilities of militants who do not have extensive ground supply lines in a hostile environment. Raqqah is Daesh’s self-proclaimed “capital.” The terrorist group took over the city in March 2013.’

| 17 Jan 2017 | After nearly three years, the hunt for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 ended in futility and frustration Tuesday, as crews completed their deep-sea search of a desolate stretch of the Indian Ocean without finding a trace of the plane. The Joint Agency Coordination Center in Australia, which has helped lead the $160 million hunt for the Boeing 777 in remote waters west of Australia, said the search had officially been suspended after crews finished their fruitless sweep of the 120,000-square kilometer (46,000-square mile) search zone.
