    NOTTINGHAM FOREST’S Steve Cook was on the pitch when his dad suffered a cardiac arrest in the stands last season. It was the penultimate game of the Championship campaign. Cook was back at his beloved Bournemouth, where a win for the hosts would secure them top-flight football. 3Forest defender Steve Cook says he used his father's situation as 'motivation' for a successful final push for promotion to the Premier LeagueCredit: Getty 3Ex-Bournemouth star Steve Cook is ready for another go at the top flightCredit: Getty Forest needed a victory to stay in the hunt for an automatic promotion spot but things were not quite right in the warm-up at the Vitality Stadium. Former Cherries defender Cook said: “It was a big game for me, going back to Bournemouth and having a chance to nick automatic promotion from them. “We knew something had happened in the crowd. I had no idea it was my dad, Richard, though, so it was a bit of a strange one. “I got subbed late on and that’s when I was told, ‘Look, something has happened’....
    JoJo Siwa has doubled down on her claims that Candace Cameron Bure was the rudest celebrity she's ever met and confirmed reports they clashed over a red carpet snub when Siwa was just 11.  'You know, I had a rough experience when I was little,' Siwa, 19, told Page Six, corroborating the story Bure, 46, detailed yesterday about how she accidentally snubbed the then 11-year-old at a red carpet event.  'I was 11, and I was a big, big fan, and I wanted to take a picture with her, and it wasn't a good time for her,' Siwa said. Siwa was referring to an incident when she and Bure crossed paths at a Fuller House premier. Siwa claimed she asked Bure for a photo at the time - but that Bure told her 'not right now,' and then never returned for the photo despite moving on to take photos with others. 'I will say because I had a bad experience, that doesn't mean that she is an awful human,' the social media star said, 'I think it just was an...
    The Oak Fire, which began Friday afternoon and is burning through rural communities in Mariposa County about 10 miles west of Yosemite National Park, is the kind of fire that firefighters had been worried about as California struggles through a third year of severe drought. Late Friday night, the fire had grown to 4,350 acres with 0% containment. Flames surrounded homes in the Midpines area as residents evacuated. Police closed Highway 140 and massive columns of smoke poured off the landscape in what had become the most ominous fire of the year so far. The devastating blaze might seem like a commonplace event in California after several years of record wildfires. But until it began, the state was off to a surprisingly promising start to this summer’s wildfire season. A Bay Area News Group analysis of data from the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise found that just 33,592 acres burned statewide from January 1 to July 19 on federal, state and privately owned lands. That’s the lowest total over that time since 2009, and the third-lowest in...
    While the officer would have been allowed to fire on the suspect at the time, the report said he could have mistakenly believed he needed authorization from a supervisor, or he could have believed the suspect was too far away for an accurate shot. The assessment found other failings of the police response that may had led to the preventable loss of life. It found that officers "lost momentum" waiting for more firepower and equipment to arrive at the school while taking more fire. The report said that officers failed to consider other options to breach the room, including going through the sheetrock or through the windows. The report had a damning conclusion. "While we do not have definitive information at this point, it is possible that some of the people who died during this event could have been saved," the report said.

    Win McNamee/Getty Images. Former Defense Secretary Mark Esper spoke with Mediaite editor-in-chief Aidan McLaughlin for the latest episode of The Interview podcast, and shared how former President Donald Trump dodged direct confrontations when firing people, including when he removed Esper from his post.   In this segment, McLaughlin brought up a section of Esper’s new book, A Sacred Oath, that describes the dichotomy between the sharp businessman persona Trump cultivated on The Apprentice (with his infamous “You’re fired!” tagline) and the reality of how he managed the White House. The full episode of Esper’s remarks will be published Monday morning here at Mediaite. “You do write about that in the book, that despite Trump’s reputation for being a ruthless and decisive executive who never hesitates to fire people, he actually rarely worked that way,” said McLaughlin. “How did he operate?” Trump “rarely gave orders,” said Esper. Instead he “would tend to kind of suggest or throw it out in the air, or to talk openly or muse about these things and hoping somebody would grasp on to it.” This led to...
    A HAIRDRESSER has revealed that one client was such a nightmare that she had to 'fire her.' Bailey Mitchell, from South Carolina, US, said that she told the woman she was no longer welcome after she was rude to one of her other clients. 2Bailey said the customer was always a lot to handleCredit: baileylavendermit/Tik Tok The hairdresser told how the client tried to sabotage her career after she asked her to leave the salon. Posting under the domain @baileylavendermit she said: "Y'all asked for a series about why I fired clients in the past so here's another story." Adding: "Early in my career I had taken on a new client who was a lot to handle, but during that time I didn't have a ton of clients, so I had plenty of time for her." Bailey explained that the woman would turn up hours early, or hours late for her scheduled appointment, which became an issue when she began to grow her client base.

    The body of a missing 21-year-old man was found inside a QVC distribution facility following a 5-alarm fire that QVC officials previously said everyone involved emerged safe from. Authorities in Rocky Mount, North Carolina said search and rescue teams found the body of Kevon Ricks on the outbound side of the loading dock Sunday morning.  The blaze ripped through the building Saturday morning just after 2 a.m. Fire officials said 75 percent of the structure was destroyed from the fire.  'This is a very active and fresh investigation,' said Edgecombe County manager Eric Evans during a press conference on Sunday afternoon. '[We're] not able to answer any questions at this point and time, but thank you for being here.' The fire was so powerful that 45 crews from six fire departments responded and worked for several hours to extinguish it. Crews were working around-the-clock, running 12-hour shifts.  Kevon Ricks, 21 (pictured), with his 1-year-old son Kylan in this photo.

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki insisted that President Biden was following proper Covid-19 protocols in forging ahead with his public appearances, despite having come down with a cold.  Biden sparked concerns for his health on Friday by speaking with a hoarse voice and coughing his way through a speech on the disappointing November jobs report that fell below expectations. 'A lot of people in the workforce are encouraged not to got to work if they are exhibiting those symptoms. So are the rules different for the president?' Fox News' Peter Doocy asked the press secretary.  'The president again was tested [for Covid], as we put out,' Psaki said. 'He received a response quickly for him to proceed ... he had a cold.'  Doocy noted it is possible to test negative several times before testing positive. 'Any concerns?'  'I can assure you that the president follows every protocol ... he wants to keep everyone safe in the White House.'  She said Biden was tested for COVID more often than usual this week - three times - because of his cold symptoms. ...
    Five British tourists who died when their helicopter burst into a fireball seconds after crashing in the Grand Canyon would have survived if it had used a fire resistant fuel, a coroner has ruled. Jonathan Udall, 31, and his 29-year-old wife Ellie died along with Rebecca Dobson, 26, her boyfriend Stuart Hill, 29, and his brother Jason Hill, 31, when their Airbus EC130 B4 crashed near the Colorado River in Arizona on February 10, 2018.  The group were on holiday to celebrate Stuart's 30th birthday, while the Mr and Mrs Udall were travelling as newlyweds and were making a trip to Las Vegas.  All five victims survived the initial impact, but died of thermal injuries and smoke inhalation after the helicopter caught fire 'within a matter of seconds' because it was not required to be fitted with a Crash Resistant Fuel System (CFRS) - a fuel that delays or decreases the likelihood of a post-crash fire. A sixth friend, 39-year-old Jennifer Dorricott, a solicitor, survived but suffered life-changing injuries in the crash. Pilot Scott Booth, of the tour operator Papillon,...
    Former FDNY commissioner Thomas von Essen told "Fox News Reporting" on Saturday that the 343 firefighters who died in the 9/11 terrorist attacks were the "best fire chiefs in the world." Of the 2,753 people killed at the World Trade Center, 343 were first responders from the Fire Department of New York, while another 71 were law enforcement officers from 10 different agencies.  "We had the best group of fire chiefs probably anywhere in the world because New York City had so many high rise buildings, so many dangerous buildings, so many prevention laws, and codes and everything else," he said. The firefighter chiefs "really knew what they were doing," Von Essen continued, noting that once the second tower was hit by the plane, they had to "split them up." "I was in the North tower lobby and we sent half of them to the south tower to try to get a handle of what was going on there," he recalled. ICONIC 9/11 PHOTOS AND THE PHOTOGRAPHERS WHO SHOT THEM: HERE ARE THEIR STORIES Von Essen said that though they...
    A survivor of the 09/11 terrorist attacks has appeared on the Lorraine show to pay tribute to the unknown firefighter who saved her life. California-based Shumi Brody, was just 22-years-old, and on her first day on her new job as a legal assistant when two commercial jets were flown into the Twin Towers in worst ever terrorist attack in the US, which killed almost 3,000 people. According to the now mum-of-three, people in the tower had no idea what was going on when the planes hit. She said: 'It was really hard to tell what had happened, at no point when I was in the building would I have ever thought that it was a commercial jet liner that had hit us. 'It felt like an earthquake, which was very strange for New York City. It shook the building violently and then all of a sudden came to a stop.' According to Shumi, she was waiting on the 44th floor to take the elevator to the 56th floor when the plane hit the building.  She added:  'I was all alone, I wasn't...
    Engine failure that caused a Jetstar flight to veer to one side of a Brisbane Airport runway and abort take off was caused by a screwdriver tip left behind during maintenance. An Australian Transport Safety Bureau investigation determined the tool piece had been inside the engine for more than 100 flights before the incident on October 23 last year. Crew aboard the Airbus A320 felt a vibration and heard a popping noise that 'rapidly grew faster and faster' as power was applied for take off on the flight to Cairns. The screwdriver tip (pictured) was left in the Jetstar plane's engine for more than 100 flights  The engine on the flight from Brisbane to Cairns burst into flames moments before take-off and the passengers disembarked safely (stock image)  It diverged to the right of the runway's centre line despite the first officer applying the full left direction rudder pedal. The plane had reached a ground speed of 30 knots, about 55km/h. Passengers, an air traffic controller and crew of another aircraft saw flames momentarily flare from the plane's...
    A PETRIFIED mum watched in horror as her 18-month old daughter suddenly crashed backwards into a gas fireplace, her skin MELTING as she endured horrendous burns. The mum, named only as Crystal, left the room for mere seconds to get the toddler's bedroom ready for a nap, leaving baby Skylah "playing quietly". 3Crystal with her daughter Skylah in happier timesCredit: Kidspot 3Skylah's horrific burnsCredit: Kidspot “When I came back a few minutes later, Skylah was jumping on the lounge next to the freestanding gas-heated fireplace and fell backwards onto it just as I screamed ‘No!’,” mum-of-two Crystal told Kidspot The "incredibly hot" fireplace was a fixture of the home she was renting and a guard that she'd installed for safety had been temporarily removed while she was re-arranging furniture, leaving the little girl in harm's way. “Her skin had stuck to it," a panicked Crystal recalled, "[and] as I pulled her off, it melted into the glass." “She was screaming hysterically as I ran her to the sink to run her under cold water.” Frantically, her partner raced home so that the...
    The sailor charged with arson for allegedly setting aflame the 40,000-ton USS Bonhomme Richard, injuring 63 people, has been identified in an NCIS search warrant as a failed Navy SEAL bent on revenge. Ryan Sawyer Mays, 20, was named the primary suspect for the first time in the legal document, which was obtained by the Daily Beast and seen by the Daily Mail. Investigators were led to Mays after interviewing the 177 service members assigned to the Bonhomme Richard and several of them claimed to either see Mays around the scene of the fire before it was set, hear him say he was guilty while talking to himself or hear him express extreme disdain for the Navy.  The warrant also says a polygraph revealed Mays was lying about certain relevant questions pertaining to the events of July 12, 2020, the day the fire was set. And further red flags were raised when Mays allegedly also lied to investigators about his personal life, claiming he had gotten another sailor pregnant. When she was questioned, the sailor denied ever being pregnant and...
    When Ethan Junkersfeld evacuated his Lakehead home Wednesday afternoon, he never thought it would be the last time he saw it intact. The Salt fire in Shasta County had just ignited along Interstate 5, sparked by a vehicle that sent flammable material into dry brush, according to authorities. A friend called and woke Junkersfeld from a nap, warning that flames were bearing down on their Cascade Cove neighborhood. “I went outside and looked up, and I couldn’t tell how far the fire was, because we have a big hill,” Junkersfeld said Sunday. “So we just grabbed anything and left.” “Anything” ended up being a duffel bag full of clothes and a case of water, he said. He and his fiancee fled with their sons, ages 3 and 6, to his father’s house in the city of Mount Shasta. He estimates they were out the door within 10 minutes from the time he woke up. Junkersfeld, 24, who has lived in the area since the sixth grade, has had to evacuate due to fire at least three times before. Each time...

    There are no circumstances under which President Joe Biden would consider firing Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House said on Friday.  'No,' said White House press secretary Jen Psaki when asked about the option. For the second day in a row she fielded questions about Fauci in the wake of questions surrounding his released emails, calling him a 'renowned' figure. And, for the second day in a row, she defended the doctor. 'Dr. Fauci is a renowned public servant - civil servant - I should say career civil servant. He's overseen management of multiple global health crises,' she said. 'And attacks launched on him are certainly something we wouldn't stand by. I understand there's interest in the emails, he's answered a lot of questions on the emails. I don't think I'm gonna have much more to add on them from here.'    Psaki also wouldn't speculate whether the attacks aimed at him were 'political,' as Republicans have largely drawn attention to the emails. 'I'm going to let Dr. Fauci speak to his own defense of his emails from 17 months again...
    Monday, former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) addressed his departure from CNN, where he served as a political contributor, during an appearance on FNC’s “Hannity.” Santorum was reportedly dismissed from the left-of-center cable news channel for dubious allegations of making disparaging remarks about Native American culture. The former lawmaker told host Sean Hannity that CNN had a right to fire him, but he said his dismissal was a product of cancel culture. “[I]n many, many cases throughout my entire career, people have been called to be fired for saying this, and fired for saying this,” he said. “And I’ve always defended their right, and say, ‘Look, people have a right to their opinion.’ And, by the way, CNN has a right to fire me. If they don’t like what I’m saying or what I’m doing, they have a right to fire me. I have no animus at all toward CNN. Like I said, I appreciate the opportunity they gave me. But I think it does show that the left is intolerant. They are worried. I’m sure their viewership, which is obviously...
    Israel Defense Forces (IDF) international spokesman Jonathan Conricus argued on "Fox and Friends Weekend" on Sunday that none of the recent violence in the Middle East "would have been possible without Iranian knowledge, funding, expertise and hands on involvement on the ground."  "It’s very clear, Iranian fingerprints are all over the situation in terms of money, knowledge, personnel and energy spent," Conricus told host Pete Hegseth.He added that "when the most important countries around the world are thinking about negotiating with Iran, people need to remember [that] the Iranians are the number one exporters of instability and terror and death and destruction in the Middle East and they should be addressed and held accountable as such." Israel, late last week, announced that it had come to a cease-fire agreement with Hamas that put an end to 11 days of fighting in which Hamas fired thousands of rockets at Israeli civilian targets, to which Israel responded with airstrikes.  "Iranian specialists, engineers and people who deal in rocketry and explosives have been educating and telling Hamas engineers how to produce rockets, how to manufacture their own weapons," Conricus argued on Sunday. "Had it not been for that very specific and detailed Iranian intervention,...
    (CNN)After the worst wildfire season ever in 2020, California is bracing for more destruction this year due to worsening drought conditions and above-normal temperatures. "We had world record-breaking high temperatures in our own backyard in California... 130 degrees in our state," Governor Gavin Newsom said Thursday as he launched a $536 million funding package to boost fire prevention projects.The outlook already ominous as 91% of the state is suffering from drought and has reported consecutive dry months since last October, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. "Even record investments in this space are not enough to deal with the magnitude of that reality," Newsom said. "But yes, we need to do more on forest management and vegetation management."The new legislation will invest millions of dollars toward hiring additional fire personnel, buying mechanical equipment, building defensible spaces and developing vegetation-management projects that will control and slow down the fires, Newsom said.Read More"We can't sugarcoat the fact that this summer is going to be challenging," said Wade Crowfoot, California's Natural Resources Secretary. "We are just getting out of our second consecutive dry...

I saw it from my window a block away,” said neighbor Marta Schlitzer. (CBS2) The fire commissioner said preliminary reports show the bruising battle for firefighters could have been avoided. “The occupant fled but left the door open. We’ve stressed over the years the seriousness of that. If you do unfortunately have a fire in your home or apartment, how important it is to close that door, because the fire spread out into the hallway,” said Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro. The flames then traveled north....
    Piers Morgan ripped into Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's 'appalling' interview with Oprah in an appearance on DailyMailTV on Monday, saying the couple unleashed 'friendly fire from within'.  The host of Good Morning Britain hasn't been shy about his contempt of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's performance in the interview, which aired in the US on Sunday night.  Asked about it by DailyMailTV host Thomas Roberts, Morgan said: 'I thought it was one of the most disingenuous diatribes I've ever had to witness, an appalling series of smears against the Royal family, not least that they're a bunch of racists who treated her appallingly when she apparently felt suicidal, they were heartless, they were brutal, they were bullies, and so on and so on.'  He branded the interview 'incredibly one-sided - knowing the Royal family will be almost incapable of responding publicly' and 'very damaging to the monarchy, to the royal family and to the queen'.

    Activists from the demonstration this Saturday night in Barcelona have set fire to a Guàrdia Urbana van on La Rambla while the agents who were occupying it were still inside (at least two), although They have had time to get out, unscathed. It happened around 8:15 p.m. near local police station, long after the bulk of the peaceful demonstration dissolved. Several hooded men have thrown objects at the van and another has later thrown flammable liquid, at which point the fire has started: some have applauded and one has shouted: “Son of a bitch. Come on, run away, you bastard.”
    Boeing had been working to strengthen engine covers on the 777 for two years before last weekend's flight came apart over Denver, according to a report Thursday. The Aerospace giant was working with the Federal Aviation Administration to strengthen protective engine covers following similar problems on earlier flights preceding Saturday's emergency landing, The Wall Street Journal reported. Investigators have attributed Saturday's mid-air incident in Denver to a fan blade that broke off soon after takeoff due to metal fatigue and apparently breached the engine cover, known as a cowling. An internal FAA document reads: 'Boeing has decided to redesign the fan cowl instead of trying to modify existing fan cowls to address both the structural strength concerns.'  The United Airline jet's engine caught fire and began breaking apart. No one was hurt in the incident, but the episode raised questions about maintenance on the jets. Broken fan blades should be contained by engines and their protective covers. The planemaker and the FAA had been discussing potential fixes for about two years, following an earlier incident in 2018, according to the Journal.   ...
    The gunman shot dead by cops after opening fire on the steps of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine on Sunday had a long rap sheet that included an attempted murder bust, according to records and sources. Luis Vasquez, 52, was arrested on the Upper West Side for attempted murder in 1990, and on an assault charge there a year earlier, sources said Monday. Vasquez, of the Bronx, was also hit with a drug sale charge in 1989, as well as a marijuana charge in the Bronx in 2012 and a turnstile-jumping offense in 2007. It was not immediately clear how the cases were adjudicated, and some of the arrests have been sealed, according to the sources. On Sunday, the caught-on-video shooting at St. John the Divine happened around 3:45 p.m., at the end of a Christmas carol performance outside the historic cathedral.

    The family of former Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh have released a touching statement regarding his death as it's revealed the millionaire, worth $840million, left no will.   The shoe magnate's family released the statement Thursday, nearly one week after Hsieh died at a Connecticut hospital from complications of smoke inhalation sustained during a house fire.  Firefighters had to drag an unconscious Hsieh out of burning shed at New London home, which belonged to a former Zappos employee, after being told someone was trapped inside at 3.30am on November 18, according to fire chief Thomas Curcio.  He had initially been taken to Lawrence + Memorial hospital in New London, suffering from burns and smoke inhalation before being transferred in a Lifestar helicopter.  Former Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh (pictured) died from complications of smoke inhalation in a Bridgeport, Connecticut, hospital on November 27 Authorities said Hsieh was inside the shed of a New London, Connecticut, home when it caught on fire during the early morning huors of November 18 (pictured) In interviews before Hsieh's death on Friday last week, authorities said they has could...
    BARACK Obama asked whether Joe Biden had the "fire" to be the next US President, reveals a new book on the Democratic White House contender. And Jill Biden urged her whining husband to accept being Obama's vice-president, telling him to just "grow up", claims author and New Yorker reporter Evan Osnos. 4In 2015, then President Barack Obama shares a laugh with Vice President Joe BidenCredit: AP:Associated Press 4Joe Biden kisses his wife, Dr. Jill BidenCredit: Alamy Live News The extraordinary revelations are contained in Osnos's new book, Joe Biden: The Life, the Run, and What Matters Now. Commenting on Biden's aim to run for president, an unenthusiastic Obama apparently said in 2015: "I think that for both Joe and Hillary (Clinton), they've already accomplished an awful lot in their lives. "The question is, do they, at this phase in their lives, want to go through the pretty undignifying process of running all over again?" Obama added on Biden: "You have to have that fire in the belly, which is a question only Joe can answer himself." Osnos says that,...
    Finally, a decade into the streaming wars, someone had the sense to secure the rights to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. I haven't been able to watch Uncle Phil (R.I.P.) in years, but now all feels right in the world, thanks to HBO Max. Just kidding — the world is on fire right now — but Will Smith helps me forget that for 22 minutes. Cannabis nostalgia has that effect in spades, too. After smoking good weed, my giddy old memories seem closer and more real, to the point that I paused Toy Story right before the Pizza Planet scene for a quick puff last night. It doesn't always work, but the right strain and mindset often combine for fun mental trips to years past when the present is giving me an off night. Cheetah Piss, a strain from Cookies Fam that sounds more like high-octane dirt-bike fuel than cannabis, seemed made to fit that mold. Cheetah Piss was named in honor of Cat Piss, an energetic, ammonia-smelling strain from the 2000s that became popular at medical dispensaries on the...

    Earlier Tuesday President Donald Trump railed against a rumor that he went to Walter Reed late last year after he “suffered a series of mini-strokes.” Some details surrounding the Walter Reed trip are contained within a new book by New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt, but he said there’s nothing in his book about “mini-strokes.” After his denial, the physician to the president put out a statement backing up Trump’s denial. Per CBS News’ Sara Cook, one White House official said the president was talking about a tweet from Joe Lockhart, former Bill Clinton press secretary and current CNN political analyst, asking if Trump had a stroke.

    CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — An investigation is underway after a Charleston police officer on Friday spotted debris in a road that led to the discovery of vandalism at a memorial site for nine firefighters. The memorial marks the former site of the Sofa Super Store, where nine firefighters died battling a massive fire in the furniture showroom on June 18, 2007. Charleston Fire Chief Dan Curia said the memorial is “sacred to the Charleston Fire Department, is sacred to the service, but it's an important part of our community. And to think that somebody would deface this memorial is absolutely heinous. It's disgusting. And on behalf of the Charleston Fire Department, I deplore this act,” WCSC-TV reported. Charleston Police Chief Luther Reynolds said the department will make an arrest. “Somebody will be held accountable for this,” he said. A police officer stopped at the Charleston 9 Memorial park at about 1:40 a.m. Friday when he noticed debris in the median. The officer found an American flag draped over a cross along with several smaller flags scattered around, an incident report...

    The Atlanta cop who fatally shot Rayshard Brooks had allegedly tried to cover up a previous shooting involving another black man in 2015, it has been revealed. Garrett Rolfe, 27, has been charged on 11 counts including felony murder and aggravated assault, Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard announced in a press conference on Wednesday.   Rolfe was immediately fired by the Atlanta Police Department after he shot and killed Brooks, 27, during a police confrontation outside a Wendy's drive-thru on Friday.  Court documents obtained by The Guardian on Wednesday revealed the former cop was one of three officers involved in the shooting of Jackie Jermaine Harris in August 2015.  Harris, who had been driving a stolen truck, survived the incident but was treated in the hospital for a collapsed lung.

    Despite the fact that he has reportedly been arrested between 60-100 times, thanks to bail reform, a registered sex offender was out free walking on Third Avenue in the Gramercy Park area of New York City last Friday, when he decided to shove a 92-year-old woman down, causing her to hit her head on a fire hydrant. The attack was caught on surveillance video. As the suspect, whom CBS New York identified as 31-year-old Rashid Brimmage, walked away, he looked back at the woman but did nothing to help her. The woman, whom NBC New York identified only as “Geraldine,” said, “When they helped me up, I said ‘what happened’ because I didn’t even know what happened. It was completely out of the blue.” She wound up at Mount Sinai Beth Israel hospital. “I can’t believe that someone would do this,” she told CBS New York. After watching the video, she said, “Oh, he did look back. He did look back to see me fall on the floor, that rat!” The woman gestured to her head, noting, “He hit me...

    Nashville, Tenn. (AP) - A marathon 11-hour public hearing on Nashville’s budget turned ugly in the early hours of Wednesday morning after hundreds of people showed up or called in asking the council to defund police and put more money into social services. The hearing comes after days of protests in Nashville over the May 25 death in Minneapolis of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who pleaded for air as a white police officer pressed a knee to his neck. Peaceful daytime protests on Saturday turned destructive that evening as demonstrators toppled a statue of a former state lawmaker who espoused racist views and set a fire inside the city’s historic courthouse. Council President Pro Tem Jeff Syracuse had to take over the budget meeting when Vice Mayor Jim Shulman became frustrated by a number of people repeating the same talking points, Syracuse said in a telephone interview.

    LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Supreme Court on Friday upheld the first-degree murder convictions of an Omaha man for killing two people in separate shootings in August 2015. Preston Pope is serving two life sentences for the deaths of DePrecia Neelon and Garion Johnson. Pope appealed his 2018 convictins, arguing that the trial court’s jury instructions were faulty and questioning the legality of police collection of his DNA, among other things. In an opinion Friday, the state’s high court found that Pope’s were either without merit or weren’t brought up at trial and so weren’t eligible for appellate review.
