Previously Deported Criminal Illegal Alien Shoots 3 D.C. Police Officers Serving Warrant For Animal Cruelty: Feds | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A man arrested in Washington, D.C., two weeks ago for allegedly shooting multiple police officers who were responding to a call at his residence is a previously deported criminal illegal alien.

    Stephen Claude Rattigan, 48, opened fire on officers from the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) on Valentine's Day when they served an outstanding arrest warrant at his home related to a 2023 incident involving animal cruelty. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) says that he "was captured by a security camera beating one of his dogs several times in the face."

    Rattigan, also known as Julius James, is a Jamaican national who has a criminal history dating back to 1995, including larceny and drug charges, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) told The Daily Wire.

    Rattigan allegedly shot three police officers at his home and then barricaded himself inside the residence for more than 12 hours. After he was arrested, 31 dogs were removed from his residence.

    Federal prosecutors charged Rattigan with assault with intent to kill while armed, assault on a police officer while armed, and possession of a firearm during a crime.

    ICE has lodged a detainer request against Rattigan to have him transferred into their custody "once his time is served" so he can be once again deported.

    Rattigan was deported from the U.S. in 2001 but later illegally re-entered the country at an unknown date and unknown location.


    Reporter Julio Rosas was the first to report that Rattigan was an illegal alien.

    The alleged crime is just the latest example of high-profile offenses involving illegal aliens since President Joe Biden took office. Under the Biden administration, more than 7.2 million illegal aliens - a number greater than the population of 36 U.S. states - have entered the U.S. The border crisis has become the top issue for voters heading into this fall's general election, an expected rematch between Biden and former President Donald Trump. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reports a massive increase in the number of criminal illegal aliens encountered at the U.S. border under Biden's presidency.

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?
