Lincoln police officer Mario Herrera dies nearly two weeks after being shot while serving a warrant


Investigator Mario Herrera, a 23-year veteran of the Lincoln Police Department, was attempting to serve a second-degree assault warrant related to a March homicide when he was shot August 26, the department said in a Facebook post.
“Despite skilled and determined medical care, as well as the thoughts, prayers, and support of his family, friends and community, he succumbed to his injuries. Investigator Herrera’s valiant fight ended as he passed away in the early morning hours of September 7th, 2020,” the post said.

Herrera, whose age was not given, leaves behind a wife and four children.

“The Lincoln Police Department is devastated by the loss of one of our most outstanding police officers. Mario was an exceptional investigator, a selfless teammate, and a tireless public servant,” the post said. “Empathetic, kind, and utterly committed to serving victims and protecting his community, Mario was an exemplary human being who just happened to be a Lincoln police officer.”

In a separate post, the police department said a procession involving several agencies would bring Herrera back to Lincoln from Omaha, where he had been treated, Monday afternoon.

A GoFundMe page has been set up by Herrera’s family, the police said.

WW3 fears: How WW3 fears have ignited as Iran issues arrest warrant for Trump

World War 3 fears have ignited across the globe after US President Donald Trump has been issued an arrest warrant over the killing of Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani in January. The death of the Iranian commander prompted fears the incident would provide the flashpoint for World War 3, but now the recent arrest has sparked concern once again.

In a drone airstrike on January 3, the USA assassinated the Iranian general.

President Trump’s decision to assassinate Major General Qassem Soleimani set off a chain of consequences and almost immediately led the US-led coalition fighting IS to suspend operations in Iraq.

The US and its allies announced that their main job was then defending themselves.

US President Trump approved of the assault on General Soleimani claiming the action was undertaken to make “the world a safer place”.

But in the wake of the January 3 attack, Iran vowed “harsh revenge” and promised to “turn day into night”.

This assassination was dubbed by many high-ranking Iranians as a “declaration of war”.

In retaliation, Mr Trump warned Iran the US could act “disproportionately” if Iran targets any American “person or target” in revenge for the killing of General Soleimani.

Iranian authorities faced protests after its military shot down a Ukrainian passenger plane, killing all 176 passengers on board.

Several global leaders spoke out against the rising tensions, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson saying he did not want “a military conflict” in the region.

Interpol, the international police body, has the authority to issue worldwide arrest warrants.

A Red Notice from Interpol is a request to law enforcement worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender, or similar legal action.

It is not an arrest warrant but is instead an international wanted persons notice.

Red Notices are issued for fugitives wanted either for prosecution or to serve a sentence.

US special representative Brian Hook said: “Our assessment is that Interpol does not intervene and issue Red Notices that are based on a political nature.

“This is a political nature. This has nothing to do with national security, international peace or promoting stability… It is a propaganda stunt that no-one takes seriously.”

But many have expressed fears Mr Trump may escalate the tensions, particularly as the US President continues to face criticism from within the US following his response to the coronavirus pandemic and his reaction to anti-racism protests across the country.

Recent polls reveal Democratic presidency candidate Joe Biden has overtaken Mr Trump as the most popular candidate to become the next president.

According to the FT’s polling data, as of June 26, Joe Biden is forecast to win 307 electoral college votes: 198 of which are solidly in his favour and 109 are leaning in his favour.



Donald Trump arrest warrant: Could Iran REALLY arrest Trump?

Top Iranian general Qasem Soleimani was killed in a US airstrike in January 2020. Iran’s semi-official news agency Fars reported Tehran is now asking Interpol to assist with the arrest of US President Donald. Iran has reportedly named Trump and 35 others as facing “murder and terrorism” charges as a result of the attack.

Can Iran really arrest Trump?

It is highly unlikely Interpol would try to arrest Donald Trump on the request of Iran. 

The international agency outlines in its guidance they are forbidden from “undertaking any intervention or activities of a political” nature.
