American Medical Association goes all-in for gun control, turning doctors into police state enforcers

The American Medical Association (AMA) is a powerful organization that defines medical education and medical practice in the U.S. The organization creates policies for all physicians to follow and they can threaten a doctor’s medical license if they do not follow along. In 2018, the AMA has decided to support gun control as a public health issue.

First established in 1845, the AMA determined, most importantly, medical ethics. This includes protecting a patient’s right to informed consent before any medical treatment or procedure takes place. Today, the AMA fails to enforce its informed consent policy, allowing pediatricians to get away with vaccinating kids without providing the vaccine insert to parents. If informed consent was enforced, then parents would see the lack of safety data for vaccines. Parents would see exactly what vaccines are doing to their sons and daughters, and doctors would honor parents’ questions, concerns, and decisions not to vaccinate.

Over the years, the AMA established rules for what constitutes a medical education. AMA policy makers soon dictated what medicine was, establishing chemical interventions as the only model of “evidence-based” medicine. The AMA has a dark history of suppressing effective herbal medicine, chiropractic care, homeopathy, cancer cures, and alternative therapies for healing. It’s not surprising that the AMA is all in for the current CDC vaccine schedule, advocating dozens of vaccine doses for children, even though reports of vaccine damage continue to pour in to the VAERS reporting system. (Related: More children harmed by vaccines than from gunshots, government statistics reveal.)

If public health continues to decline due to the AMA’s inane vaccine policies, why would anyone trust that they know what they are talking about when it comes to curbing gun violence? Even worse, why would the AMA spend resources instructing doctors to push for gun control policies, when children’s brains are being altered by the psychiatric drugs that the AMA pushes?

AMA’s new gun control push turns doctors against patients

Many physicians aren’t going to follow suit with this insidious gun control agenda, because many doctors are gun owners too, and they want to respect the privacy of their patients. Many physicians aren’t going to be a police state enforcer, turning in their patients because they own a scary-looking rifle or a 14 round “high capacity” magazine. Physicians should be smart enough to know that “assault” is an action, not an object. Naming a class of firearms as “assault weapons” doesn’t make these objects more dangerous.

Notwithstanding, there will still be those doctors who bow down to the AMA and become snitches for the Marxist gun control agenda. Claiming that they are “improving public health” by removing firearms from the streets, these lackey doctors will do the “heroic” work of turning in their “high risk” patients who own firearms. All the while, these doctors will prescribe psychiatric drugs that provably cause violent behavior and suicide. Then they will turn around and inject children with brain-damaging aluminum and pump them full of antibiotics which cause gut dysbiosis and ultimately changes brain chemicals.

AMA President Dr. David O. Barbe spoke to association members at a recent meeting, decrying that physicians “must not back down from addressing gun violence.” Among their policies for “addressing gun violence,” the AMA calls for ensuring that schools remain “gun free zones” with no actionable plan to protect students from attacks. Not surprisingly, the AMA is also opposed to conceal and carry reciprocity, where private, well trained individuals carry concealed handguns for personal and public protection.

The AMA also supports gun confiscation through gun buy-back programs and wants physicians to identify “high risk” individuals, so these individuals can be barred from owning a firearm or have their guns taken away immediately. Crime prevention sounds noble, but one physician’s definition of “high risk” will differ from another’s. Individuals who have not committed a crime could be declared “high risk” by a paranoid, gun-illiterate physician. The doctor could have the individual’s guns confiscated by law enforcement, without due process of law and all based on his biased suspicion. Which beliefs and attitudes make a person “high risk?” Are doctors who push pills even capable of making that judgment?

Dr. Barbe believes that “high capacity” magazines, which are defined as having more than 10 rounds of ammunition, are part of the problem. The AMA also calls on Congress to ban “assault-style” rifles, such as the Armalite-15. According to Dr. Barbe, only government officials and military service people are allowed to possess magazines with more than ten rounds. Only authority can carry rifles that can be fired semi-automatically.

Why won’t the AMA focus on the real triggers that lead to violence?

“Every day, physicians are treating suicide victims, victims of domestic partner violence, and men and women simply in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Barbe said. “It doesn’t have to be this way, and we urge lawmakers to act.”

While Dr. Barbe seems well-intentioned, targeting the tool and the innocent owner is no way to reduce violence. Just because suicide and domestic violence incidences are going up, doesn’t mean we should start blaming an inanimate object and an innocent population that abides by the law. If Dr. Barbe really cared, the AMA would investigate what actually triggers people to commit violence against themselves and others. The AMA should be focusing on the issues of the human heart and the circumstances that lead people to commit acts of violence. Blaming law abiding people (who can help protect against violence) is no way to address the problem. The AMA should investigate the brain damage that occurs after vaccination, following aluminum uptake into the brain. The AMA should investigate gut dysbiosis, a modern day health problem that triggers changes in the human brain. The AMA should investigate their own blind support for psychiatric medications, which have a track record of exacerbating violent or erratic behavior in certain people.

In Just Under 2 Hours, A Single Police Department Shot and Killed Three People

hourshours

Kansas City, MO – Last week, three people were shot and killed by officers with the Kansas City Police Department within the span of just two hours, sparking outrage in the community and forcing the department to reassess their policy in regards to use of lethal force.

The first shooting happened near the 3800 block of North Jackson when police shot a woman who was allegedly wielding a sword. Despite the fact that the woman was isolated and engaged in a standoff with no hostages, police shot her anyway, taking her life. The next shooting occurred less than an hour later, and police have released even fewer details about this incident, saying only that they responded to a report of a disturbance, where there was a fight, “possibly about a golf cart.”

In this incident, police killed two of the people involved, but have not released a detailed statement about what transpired.

Captain Lionel Colón said in a statement that the officers had “no other option than to use deadly force.”

“KCPD understands the concern when deadly force is used. We study the science behind its use. We train accordingly over and over again to thoroughly prepare ourselves,” he said.

As is the case with essentially every police department in the United States, Kansas City police believe that they have the power to be judge, jury, and executioner if a particular situation does not go exactly the way they want it to, or if a suspect refuses to obey their every command.

The website for the Kansas City Police Department states that its officers are “authorized to use deadly force in order to protect themselves or others from what they reasonably believe is an immediate threat of death or serious bodily harm.”

However, in the vast majority of cases where people are shot by police, they are actually not posing a threat to anyone’s life, they are simply disobeying an officer’s orders or trying to run and hide to evade arrest. Sadly, in many cases, victims of police violence haven’t even hurt anyone—many of them are just nonviolent drug offenders who don’t want to be taken away and put in a cage for something that shouldn’t even be illegal.

If police actually only used force in situations where someone posed a threat, it is likely that these types of conversations and criticisms would not even exist.

Due to the Kansas City Police Department’s history of excessive force, the city has attempted to make some policy measures to appease residents who are concerned about the violence, but these measures have not had much of an impact on how police do business.

According to KCUR, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker created a use of force committee in 2012, amid controversy about unnecessary police violence.

“We spend a significant greater amount of time than we used to talking to victim’s families, helping them understand our process. These particular cases, among all cases I look at, bear the greatest burden for community on whether or not they trust a process,” Baker said.

It seems at this point, in Kansas City and the rest of the United States, that people have absolutely no reason to trust in the legal system and its enforcers, and if anything, efforts by government agents like Baker are doing more harm than good. It sounds like Baker is more interested in making victims of police violence more comfortable with the legal process, instead of actually ending the violence.

Local activist Damon Daniel with Ad Hoc Group Against Crime pointed out that police escalation of violence is at the heart of this issue.

Often officers use the excuse that they felt they were threatened. Well, if they are maintaining distance, how much of a threat can that person be?
Daniel said.

“We certainly want law enforcement to return home safely, but we also want them to protect us even when we are perhaps in not in our right minds or on the right side of the law,” he added.

This point highlights one of the major problems with police in the U.S. They enter into situations seeking complete obedience, and if they don’t immediately receive it, they will escalate the situation to violence. If they were really concerned with helping people, de-escalation would be their top priority, and they would do everything in their power to subdue people peacefully, even at the risk of letting them escape.

DASH cryptocurrency and The Free Thought Project have formed a partnership that will continue to spread the ideas of peace and freedom while simultaneously teaching people how to operate outside of the establishment systems of control like using cryptocurrency instead of dollars.

Brazil: Rio de Janeiro police ‘resistance to authority’ killings doubled during last 5 months

Rio de Janeiro police

    

A total of 142 deaths were confirmed in the state of Rio de Janeiro in May compared to 97 during the same month last year.

The number of persons killed by police in the state of Rio de Janeiro increased by 46 percent in May 2018 when compared to May 2017. The increase, which was detailed in a study by Brazil’s Institute of Public Safety, showed police killed 142 persons in May 2018 compared to 97 over the same period last year.

Authorities classified all the deaths as being due to “resistance to authority” or “resistance to arrest” (auto de resistencia) by the victims.

The term, which is commonly used by police officers, implies a series of actions: the police killed someone who they describe as being a “bandido” or a thug; next, the police claim legitimate defense because the suspect was resisting arrest, the sole witnesses to the events are often the officers, and if the case is officially registered as resisting arrest; an investigation into the death of the suspect is insignificant, and no police officer would be held responsible.

A commission of inquiry was established to do away with the classification of deaths being due to resisting arrest cases and a new law banning the practice was introduced in June 2016. The bill was, however, never approved by the country’s lawmakers.

Douglas Belchior, a member of the Nucleus Union of Popular Education for Black People, said the state must recognize its role in maintaining a police force that guarantees the safety of the affluent and monied neighborhoods while systematically repressing, violating, raping, and killing “the population that’s depicted by stereotypes as being marginalized and criminal.”

The number of massacres in Rio de Janeiro has doubled since the military intervention was launched on February 16, according to a report published in April by the Intervention Observatory at Candido Mendes University.

Titled – ‘Aimlessly: No Program, No Results, No Direction’ – the study also shows that, despite federal troops patrolling the streets of Rio, the number of shootouts has also significantly increased.

Meanwhile, a new study conducted by the Institute of Applied Economic Research and Brazilian Forum of Public Safety indicated that half of all the homicides in the country occur in just 2.2 percent of the total number of cities.

The city of Quiemados in the state of Rio de Janeiro was ranked number one on the list with 134.9 homicides per 100,000 residents.

With four cities in the northeastern state of Bahia: Eunapolis (123.3 homicides per 100,000 residents), Simoes Filho (107.7 homicides per 100,000 residents), Porto Seguro (101.7 homicides per 100,000 residents) and Lauro de Freitas (99.2 homicides per 100,000 residents) all registering high murders per capita.

Police Officer Gives ‘Piggy Back’ To Elderly Man Struggling To Cross The Road [Video]


By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

You don’t need to be a superhero to help others or affect the world. In fact, sometimes the simplest of actions make the biggest difference. A video that provides testament to this statement recently went viral on Chinese social media.

Recently, an elderly man was attempting to make his way across a busy street in Mianyang, Sichuan province, when the crosswalk light turned red. While drivers waited patiently, a police officer stepped up to help.

As can be seen in the video below, the compassionate cop, Qin Weijie, approached the man and asked if he could carry him to the other side. To this unconventional request, the elderly man said “yes.”

As GoodNewsNetwork reports, the officer knew that the man had seven more lanes of traffic to cross. So, he hoisted him on his back and carried him across the street. The video is both humorous and heart-warming.

Watch the footage below:

Calls for police action after video posted of man spraying stain remover at Muslim woman

The video – shared on social media by Muslim community network 5Pillars – shows the man roaming around the with a pink Vanish spray. He then says: “Let’s see if this f*cking stuff works,” before he points the camera at a woman in a hijab and squirts the product at her.

The victim seems to not notice the man behind her, and carries on with her shopping.

The location of the video or whether it has been reported to the police is not known.

Twitter users have lashed out at the man, with one calling the incident an “assault.”

“He has sprayed a chemical on someone. I hope he has been reported to the police, what he did here is illegal. This is an assault,” he wrote.

Journalist CJ Werleman, one of the first to share the video, wrote: “While I’m hesitant to give oxygen to this racist’s hate, it does illustrate the increasing marginalization and stigmatisation Muslims now face.”

Another appalled viewer, Imran Memon, commented: “This has become a norm in our community because they know they can get away with it.”

Police K9 Attacks, Seriously Injures 6-Year-old Girl as Witnesses Contradict Cop’s Story

k9k9

Saskatoon, CA — A Saskatoon police K9, a three-year-old Belgian Malinois, reportedly wouldn’t let go of a 6-year-old after the dog attacked the little girl. Predictably, the Saskatoon police department is defending not only its dog but its handler. But if the script was flipped and the family’s dog had attacked the officer, one can bet the policeman would have killed the family dog right in front of its owners.

The incident happened while police were supposedly tracking suspects in the family’s neighborhood. Saskatoon Police Chief Troy Cooper claims the dog has been thoroughly trained and serves an integral part of the law enforcement agency. Cooper defended its training saying:

Our canine officers and their animals are an important part of our organization…The dogs are selected for police work and they all receive extensive training to a provincial standard and that is reviewed annually by supervisors in the unit.

Following the mauling, the Saskatoon PD removed the dog from service and is conducting an investigation into the dog, its training, as well as the actions of its handler. Cooper stated:

This is a working dog…It’s trained to track. It’s trained to protect the handler. It’s trained to do the things it was doing…It acted outside of that training and that’s what we’re investigating.

The tiny child was bitten between the armpit and her hip and while police claimed the dog immediately released when ordered to do so, witnesses claim otherwise.

Autumn Clifford, 6, was attacked and mauled. The vicious attack required numerous stitches to close several deep puncture wounds to her abdomen. Leslie Welder, her mother, said her daughter was simply curious and was immediately attacked. Welder stated:

My other daughter — she’s seven — stated that all Autumn did was look over and say, ‘Oh, look! Puppy!’ And next thing you know he was on her, pulling her down to the ground and attacking her.

Amanda Pritchard, a neighbor, said she witnessed the attack and claims not only did the dog viciously attacker but wouldn’t immediately let go as police contend. She said:

Out of nowhere there was two officers that I saw. One was on top of the dog. Three times he had told the dog to let go. ‘Let go! Let go!,’ he was saying to the dog. The dog did not let go. The dog, in fact, growled at the cop and shook his head like he was going to tear her…All she (Autumn) was yelling was, ‘Ow! Ow! Ow!’

Cooper stated the victim is receiving services but the police chief apparently does not want to minimize the serious nature of the attack. He remarked:

Fortunately, this is a rare occurrence but, having said that, I don’t want to downplay the seriousness of what would have been a terrifying event for a little girl and her family.

As TFTP has reported, police dogs, like deadly weapons, are often just another violent tool in the hands of law enforcement officers used to inflict pain on individuals, many of whom are peacefully protesting what they perceive to be an illegal search or unlawful arrest. In the Saskatoon case, the victim was a child, an innocent bystander, who likely wanted nothing more than to pet the officer’s dog.

As a result of the literally hundreds of violent encounters we’ve documented between police dogs and civilians, it is the stance of TFTP such unpredictable animals should be banned from police service. Not only are police K9’s given law enforcement officer status, defending oneself against being mauled by an officer’s K9 can result in felony charges against a citizen.

Just like police officers should not be treated as a protected class of citizens, so, too, should police K9s not be afforded such protections. Below, our very own Jason Bassler details five reasons why police K9s should be removed from service.

5 Reasons Why Cops Shouldn’t Have K9’s

WATCH: Massive Crowd Chases Down Police at Protest Over Man Arrested for Reporting on Pedophiles

robinsonrobinson

London, UK – Thousands marched in a protest in support of right-wing activist Tommy Robinson in Trafalgar Square over the weekend and called for his release as they held up placards, waved the Union Jack, and chanted “We want Tommy out” as they pledged their support to the English Defence League founder.

Robinson, 35, was arrested and jailed for contempt of court on May 25 outside Leeds Crown Court after broadcasting on Facebook Live, thereby ignoring reporting restrictions on a case involving a “pedophile grooming” trial purportedly involving 29 Muslim immigrants. He was arrested, brought before a judge, and given a 13-month prison sentence within five hours.

Robinson, who is a strong proponent of a nationalist British identity, has spoken out publicly against Muslim immigration to the UK, while critics maintain he is a bigot and racist. Regardless of his views, however, he should be allowed to say them without fear of arrest. But this was not the case.

During the protest, British riot police eventually drew batons and began to get aggressive with the crowd as they attempted to push them back, resulting in sporadic clashes between riot police and demonstrators. Five police officers were reportedly hurt in the clashes, none of their injuries were reportedly serious.

In footage of the protest police can be seen being chased down the street by the rowdy protestors after their attempts at crowd control fails:

The ‘Free Tommy Robinson’ rally featured Dutch MP Geert Wilders addressing the crowd and calling for Robinson’s release.

Wilders told the crowd:

‘I am here to tell you that you will never walk alone. And we are here to tell the world, and the UK government in particular: “Free Tommy Robinson!

At this very moment thousands of people are demonstrating all over the world in front of British embassies…all with one important message “Free Tommy”

Downing Street is just around the corner, so maybe once again, as loud as possible we can let them hear our message: “Free Tommy Robinson!

Wilders stated previously, in a Breitbart op-ed:

Tommy Robinson was arrested on 25 May outside Leeds Crown Court after using social media to broadcast details of an ongoing trial which was subject to reporting restrictions. He was arrested, brought before a judge, and sentenced within five hours. The judge ordered a media ban on his arrest and imprisonment, even forcing British publications to delete their articles about the case.

Such measures are common practice in North Korea and Saudi Arabia. It is sad to see how Britain, the cradle of Western democracy and the rule of law, is fast descending into tyranny.

More than 600,000 people have signed a change.org petition pleading with Prime Minister Theresa May to free Robinson.

As we previously reported, Robinson is without question a thorn in the side of the British establishment, as he has been vocal in his coverage of grooming gangs – a topic the UK media rarely covers – since at least 2011.

As the National Review explained in their article, Tommy Robinson Drew Attention to ‘Grooming Gangs.’ Britain Has Persecuted Him.:

The whole subject is so ugly and uncomfortable that very few people care to linger over it. Robinson is an exception. For him — as he said in a 2011 interview with the BBC’s Jeremy Paxman — the “grooming gangs” issue isn’t something that afflicts some far-off towns but people in the working-class communities that he knows. And while there are journalists (notably the Times’ Andrew Norfolk) who have spent considerable time and energy bringing this appalling phenomenon to light, most of British society has turned away in a combination of embarrassment, disgust, and uncertainty about how to even talk about this. Anyone who thinks Britain is much further along with dealing with the taboo of “grooming gangs” should remember that only last year the Labour MP for Rotherham, Sarah Champion, had to leave the shadow cabinet because she accurately identified the phenomenon.

While Robinson may ostensibly be locked up for “violating the rule of law,” per a technical violation of his probation, let’s be clear: Tommy was targeted because he espouses unpopular ideas and brings attention to subjects the UK power structure doesn’t want within pop culture’s purview. While in no way endorsing Robinson’s particular worldview, his right to espouse any world view — short of advocating the incitement of violence — should be unimpeachable!

Police Told to Stop Arresting Pot Dealers After Being Exposed for Only Arresting Black People

arrestingarresting

Minneapolis, MN — As jails fill up, families get torn apart, and otherwise entirely innocent people have their lives ruined by the state, politicians and even police are finally coming to terms with the immoral nature of arresting and caging people for possessing a plant. The libertine function of the war on drugs has become so glaring that a police department in Minnesota just announced that they will stop arresting low-level pot dealers.

This week, the Minneapolis police department abruptly brought to a halt the practice of targeting small time marijuana dealers. This pro-freedom move was announced after the department was caught arresting nearly all black people.

As the Star Tribune reports, in a series of rushed announcements Thursday, authorities said that police would no longer conduct sting operations targeting low-level marijuana sales, and charges against 47 people arrested in the first five months of 2018 would be dismissed.

This move comes as Hennepin County’s chief public defender exposed a blatant example of racial profiling after he noticed that 46 of the 47 people arrested for selling this highly beneficial plant were black. Mayor Jacob Frey was then notified and contacted Chief Medaria Arradondo to demand he stop the stings.

“I believe strongly that marijuana should be a lowest-level enforcement priority and that it should be fully legalized at the state level,” Frey said in a statement Thursday.

“The fact that racial disparities are so common nationwide in the enforcement of marijuana laws is one of the reasons I support full legalization.”

Indeed, one need only look at the rate at which black and brown people are prosecuted—for the exact same crimes as their white counterparts—to see this glaring disparity.

The war on drugs is racist.

Politicians are finally beginning to realize the problem the drug war presents to minorities as they find themselves victims to far more police brutality and harsher penalties in regards to drug enforcement despite using at the same rate as whites.

Congressman Ron Paul has been saying this for decades.

[Black peope] are tried and imprisoned disproportionately. They suffer the consequence of the death penalty disproportionately. Rich white people don’t get the death penalty very often. And most of these are victimless crimes. Sometimes people can use drugs and get arrested three times and never committed a violent act and they can go to prison for life. I think there’s discrimination in the system, but you have to address the drug war. I would say the judicial system is probably one of the worst places where prejudice and discrimination still exists in this country.

Cities all over the country are now realizing the utter horror caused by prohibition and officials are scrambling to make things right.

District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. out of Manhattan is one example of a politician waking up, and he announced last month that his office will refuse to prosecute people for possessing and smoking marijuana.

Illustrating the powerful notion that change does not come from sitting idly by and rolling over—and that true change comes when good people decide it is time to break bad laws—Vance said that his office will stop prosecuting marijuana possession and smoking cases starting Aug. 1 except for a few cases involving “demonstrated public safety concerns.”

Even mayor Bill de Blasio is realizing it, saying at a press conference this week, that “we must and we will end unnecessary arrests and end disparity in enforcement.”

This idea is spreading too. After Vance came out with his refusal to prosecute people for pot, Brooklyn’s district attorney quickly followed suit and publicly stated that he would scale back prosecutions as well.

“The dual mission of the Manhattan D.A.’s office is a safer New York and a more equal justice system,” Vance said in a statement. “The ongoing arrest and criminal prosecution of predominantly black and brown New Yorkers for smoking marijuana serves neither of these goals.”

This end to prohibition cannot happen fast enough. For decades otherwise entirely innocent black and brown people have been the target of cops attempting to meet their quotas and profit off the war on drugs and America having the largest prison population in the world is what we have to show for it.

It is no secret that a marijuana conviction is a blow to individual freedom—even if you were lucky enough not to go to jail or have already gotten out. A drug conviction limits the ability for people to get a job, borrow money, or even find a place to live. This attack on freedom then leads to a function known as recidivism which limits an individual’s choices thereby fostering an environment which will lead to that person ending up back in jail.

The case for reparations could even be made for all those whose lives were ruined by the drug war. Although a pardon and freedom would be far easier and faster.

It appears that the war on drugs is beginning to crumble faster and faster and those who try to keep it alive are becoming fewer and fewer. But, as long as we keep winning these battles, this war, that is still far from over, will be won by those who seek to stop it.

DASH cryptocurrency and The Free Thought Project have formed a partnership that will continue to spread the ideas of peace and freedom while simultaneously teaching people how to operate outside of the establishment systems of control like using cryptocurrency instead of dollars. Winning this battle is as simple as choosing to abstain from the violent corrupt old system and participating in the new and peaceful system that hands the power back to the people. DASH is this system.

DASH digital cash takes the control the banking elite has over money and gives it back to the people. It is the ultimate weapon in the battle against the money changers and information controllers.

If you’d like to start your own DASH wallet and be a part of this change and battle for peace and freedom, you can start right here. DASH is already accepted by vendors all across the world so you can begin using it immediately.

Florida Police Find Missing Woman's Arm In Captured Alligator

Florida wildlife officers made a grim discovery Friday in the belly of a captured monster alligator: the arm of a missing woman.

No one witnessed the attack, but a neighbor said 47-year-old Shizuka Matsuki was walking her two dogs Friday morning by a lake in Davie, a suburb of Miami, when she vanished. Only her barking dogs remained at the waterfront of Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park. One of the dogs had a fresh wound.

Her dogs won’t leave the pond,” Davie Police Maj. Dale Engle told the Sun Sentinel on Friday when the search began. “One of her dogs got bit by the gator.”

Ronald Washington of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said Friday afternoon in an interview on WPLG-TV that the agency had captured a 12½-foot-long alligator at the lake and that a necropsy on the animal revealed the severed arm.

Wildlife commission officers were expected to remain at the park until Matsuki’s body is found. The search will continue through Saturday morning, according to an FWC spokesman.

A Davie resident recalled visiting the park a year ago and seeing a shockingly large alligator swim to the bank after her son threw bread in the water to feed the fish.

“That gator was there in a heartbeat,” she told the Sun Sentinel. “We never went back again.”

Three trappers had been hired to try to capture the animal over the last two years but had failed to do so, according to the newspaper.

“This is heartbreaking for everyone involved and our sincere condolences go out to the family and friends of the victim,” said a statement from the wildlife commission.

Alligators live in all 67 of Florida’s counties. The last deadly attack was two years ago when a 2-year-old boy was killed at a lagoon at a Walt Disney World resort in Orlando. Twenty-two people have been killed in alligator attacks in the state since 1948.

The area where the attack occurred will be closed to the public until further notice.
