    Retired Army General Stanley McChrystal has compared the MAGA riot to the evolution of Al-Qaeda saying in both instances people followed a 'powerful leader' who 'justified their violence', as he warned America is headed for a homegrown insurgency. McChrystal, the former commander of American troops in Afghanistan, said there are terrifying parallels between the birth of the terrorist group responsible for the September 11 terrorist attacks and the violent siege on the US Capitol last week that left five dead and sent shockwaves around the world.  Donald Trump has given his supporters 'legitimacy to become even more radical', he told Yahoo News, with his Stop the Steal rhetoric now a radical rallying cry similar to the Lost Cause adopted by the Southerners in the American Civil War. McChrystal, who was fired by President Barack Obama after he made disparaging remarks about him and then-Vice President Joe Biden, warned that now 'the fabric of something very dangerous has been woven', the consequences will continue long after Trump leaves office.  His comments come as the nation is still reeling from the January...
    Los Angeles officials approved a $700,000 payout to a veteran police lieutenant in September after city attorneys determined his supervisors — including Assistant Chief Horace Frank, one of the LAPD’s highest-ranking commanders — wrongly demoted him after he reported alleged misconduct in his unit, records show. In a confidential legal analysis reviewed by The Times, Deputy City Atty. Marianne Fratianne advised the city to settle the lawsuit brought by Lt. Raymond Garvin — former head of the department’s Bomb Detection Canine Section — because the facts of the case “simply do not bode well for the City.” Among other issues, internal communications showed that Frank and Garvin’s direct supervisor, Capt. Kathryn Meek, had “commiserated about how there was an insufficient factual basis” to remove Garvin from his position, then built “an ad hoc paper trail of poor performance” to remove him anyway, Fratianne wrote. In addition to raising questions about the leadership of Frank, who oversees all special operations and detective bureaus, Fratianne’s analysis described a canine unit once again engulfed in allegations of mismanagement and wrongdoing — years after...

    By Antony Paone CONFLANS-SAINTE-HONORINE, France (Reuters) - The middle school teacher knifed to death on the street of a Paris suburb on Friday showed his teenage students a cartoon lampooning the Prophet Mohammad as part of a class on freedom of expression earlier this month, parents said. Nordine Chaouadi told Reuters he was the father of a 13-year-old pupil who attended the civics class given by the teacher, whom parents gathered outside the college referred to as Mr. Paty. French media have identified him as Samuel Paty. The teacher had asked pupils who were Muslim to raise their hands and invited them to leave, advising them he would be showing a caricature of Mohammad that might cause offence, said Chaouadi. For Muslims, any depiction of the Prophet is blasphemous. Chaouadi said his son, a Muslim, interpreted the teacher's actions as done out of kindness and respect for their faith. "He did it to protect the children, not to shock them," said Chaouadi. Some parents took offence, however. Two or three days later, they held a meeting at the school with...
    BDT Stage has been around since 1977— pretty much the heyday of the dinner theater movement in the United States. In March, the company opened its production of Ragtime; the day after opening night, BDT was forced to shut it down again over COVID-19. This was heartbreaking, says artistic director Michael J. Duran: “It had been very difficult bringing a cast together, and when we did, they were incredible. We had a beautiful, poignant show. I was so proud of it and the entire team. We all hoped that we would be able to get back up after a short time. We had no idea that we would still be doing this seven months later. “This has all been extremely difficult to navigate. How do we stay creative, keep our people working and keep everyone safe — employees and the public? We're faced with tough restrictions by the state and the City of Boulder. We are allowed 50 percent capacity or fifty people, whichever is less. So that limits us to 50 people. Singers have to be 25 feet from...
    Attorneys for the cops suspended over the death of Daniel Prude say the officers acted 'flawlessly' during their arrest of the unarmed black man.  Prude suffocated after he was arrested by cops during a psychotic episode in Rochester, New York on March 23.  Bodycam video - which showed a naked Prude being put into a spit hood and pinned to the ground - sparked outrage when it was released to the public last month and resulted in the suspension of seven officers who were at the scene.  But on Thursday, during a press conference held at the Rochester Police Union, lawyers said the officers were simply following protocol.   'There's no question it's a tragic situation for Mr. Prude's family, and there may need to be conversations about training and mental health intervention, but these officers did exactly what they were trained to do and they did it flawlessly,' a lawyer for officer Mark Vaughn stated.  Vaughn has been suspended with pay alongside six other policemen - Troy Taladay, Paul Ricotta, Francisco Santiago, Andrew Specksgoor, Josiah Harris, and Sergeant Michael Magri. ...
    Mumbai, September 9: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ameet Bhaskar Satam came out in support of Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut and slammed Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for carrying out demolition work at her office in Bandra on Wednesday. “In general cases, a standard operating procedure is followed such as sending notices before the civic body officials carry out the demolition.

The actor-writer took to Instagram to share her “Covid Story” and detailed her experience battling the virus as someone who suffers from chronic illness. “Seeing the carelessness with which so many in the United States are treating social distancing … I feel compelled to be honest about the impact this illness has had on me, in the hopes that personal stories allow us to see the humanity in what can feel like abstract situations,” Dunham wrote. Lena Dunham Believes Hollywood System Is Rigged in the Favor of White People, Says ‘I Wasn’t Able to Recognize the Privilege’ (Read Tweets) The actor said the symptoms started with “achy joints”, followed by a “crushing fatigue” and a “fever of 102”. “Suddenly my body simply… revolted.

    A CNN clip is going viral after an ad for Applebee's followed a story about Broadway star Nick Cordero's death, making for a startling and disheartening juxtaposition.

    Charges include illegal possession of firearms by convicted felons Five Augusta-area men are headed to federal prison after being sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in separate cases involving firearms. The five men, each facing U.S. District Court Chief Judge J.Randal Hall, were sentenced to federal prison terms to be followed by a period of supervised release, said Bobby L. Christine, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia. “A cornerstone of our office’s prosecutions is the Prosecutor to Prosecutor Program, in which we collaborate with local district attorneys to determine the best venue for cases,” said U.S. Attorney Christine. “As these sentences demonstrate, federal court often is the best option for prosecuting violent criminals with illegally carried firearms, because substantial prison time awaits – with no parole.” Sentenced in the cases are: Darryl Kennedy Daggett, 30, of Augusta, to 188 months in federal prison followed by five years of supervised release. Daggett pled guilty to Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine, Crack Cocaine and Marijuana, and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon. Daggett, who has...

    In mid-March during the height of the coronavirus lockdown, Sara Jay was trending on Twitter. Given the increased rates consumers were watching porn, it wasn’t that surprising to see a globally recognized porn star trend on a mainstream platform. But that’s not why Sara Jay’s name was trending. Former President Barack Obama was recognized (again) as one of the adult actress’ 1.1 million followers, and the internet just couldn’t get enough of it. With the tsunami of attention directed her way, Jay seized the opportunity to challenge the racial boundaries within the adult-entertainment industry. Racism in porn isn’t a secret—it’s heavily fetishized and promoted. Jay plans to change that. Through her company, Wyde Syde Productions, Jay will offer performers a unique opportunity to define their own labels and back away from racist themes that have been so prevalent in porn. In an exclusive interview with The Daily Beast, Sara Jay discusses what it’s like to be followed by Obama, her responsibilities as a pornographer, why porn needs to keep the term “interracial,” and how it can be used...
    A month after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on George Floyd’s neck for nearly eight minutes, resulting in his death, Republican leaders in the Minnesota Senate announced they would hold hearings on the riots and the resulting damage in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The move follows a special session aimed in part at rewriting Minnesota’s policing laws to prevent deadly force encounters and ensure accountability for officers. The Senate adjourned early Saturday before lawmakers could come to agreements on the efforts, as well as a deal on a bonding bill and how to allocate $841 million in federal COVID-19 aid funding to local governments. Gov. Tim Walz on Thursday approved a plan for COVID-19 aid that mirrored a bipartisan plan crafted during the session. Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka, R-East Gull Lake, said Thursday that senators need to evaluate the decisions that played out that allowed for more than a thousand businesses to be looted or burned in the metro area. They also want to know about the toppling of a Christopher Columbus statue at the Capitol. “I think the...

    Receiving a package that you ordered can make for a joyous moment. But for one Delaware family, their smiles were turned into full-blown laughter after their Amazon delivery woman followed their particular set of delivery instructions perfectly. Lynn Staffieri of Magnolia, Delaware, needed a new pet playpen for the kittens her family was fostering, so she ordered one on Amazon. But she failed to see the "additional instructions" that her teenage son had mischievously set as a default a couple months earlier. In the box under the prompt that reads, "Do we need additional instructions to find this address?" 13-year-old Jacob Staffieri wrote, "No, but knock on the door 3 times and scream abra cadabra as loud as you can and run super fast away." "It was just the first thing that came to mind, and I thought it would be funny to hear someone say that," Jacob Staffieri told CNN. When the package arrived last week, Staffieri was unaware of the instructions, and her son had forgotten, so when they heard three knocks on their door and someone screaming...

    Maplewood and St. Paul reported three carjackings and three robberies by the same group of juveniles Friday evening. The crimes are the latest in at least 20 quick-hitting robberies spanning the Twin Cities and northern suburbs over the last two weeks. “We had three in rapid succession, all the same suspects,” said Sgt. Michael Nye of the Maplewood Police Department. “They arrived in a stolen car and stole another car.” The carjackings were all in residential areas in Maplewood and all near the 5 p.m. hour, when people were arriving home from work. The suspects started on the west end of Maplewood and worked their way to the south end, then continued the crime spree in St. Paul. At 4:51 p.m., suspects approached a person who was just getting out of a vehicle in the 600 block of Eldridge Avenue. They implied they had a gun and stole a silver Lexus. This Lexus was spotted in four other robberies, which is how police know it’s the same group. At 5:01p.m. in the 1700 block of North Birmingham Street, the suspects...
    (CNN)One of the reasons Rayshard Brooks, a black man fatally shot last week by a police officer in Atlanta, is dead is because long ago, white Americans came to a consensus that their fear mattered more than the lives of men who looked like him. Issac BaileyThose long-dead white Americans from the past set us on a path to criminalizing things they didn't like -- or people they wanted to dominate. That began long before the technology that brought us viral videos of white people calling the police on black people for barbecuing in the park or asking a woman to put her dog on a leash. Somewhere along the way, the rest of us became convinced that America's culture and way of policing was just the way things always must be, which is part of why now black men aren't the only victims of police violence. Reform alone can't fix this -- especially not the weak and illogical reform President Donald Trump offered up on Tuesday. Until the deeper mindset linking policing to racist fear changes, executive orders signed...

Midland police officers stopped Tye Anders, 21, on May 16 for running a stop sign, the department said in a statement.
