    A man captured on video fatally beating an elderly man in a Beltsville parking lot has been arrested after the manner of death of the victim was officially ruled a homicide, authorities say. Julias Wright, 25, was captured on surveillance video assaulting Johnny Lee Shepard, 87, in a residential parking lot in the 11300 block of Cherry Hill Road on Thursday, June 2, according to Prince George's County police. Shepard found for his life for nearly two months after the assault before he succumbed to his injuries on Thursday, July 28. A Chief Medical Examiner determined that Shepard's cause of death was due to blunt force trauma to the head. Wright was arrested shortly after the attack, and his charges have been upgraded to murder after consultation with the State's Attorney's Office.

    Phoenix Suns and Mercury owner Robert Sarver has been suspended by the NBA for one year and fined $10 million following a league investigation into allegations that he engaged in racism, sexism, and bullying.  In a statement on Tuesday, the NBA revealed it found that Sarver used the N-word on at least five occasions among other transgressions from his nearly two-decade tenure as owner of the Suns and WNBA's Mercury. 'As stated in the report, the independent investigation found that Mr. Sarver 'engaged in conduct that clearly violated common workplace standards, as reflected in team and League rules and policies,' read the league statement. 'This conduct included the use of racially insensitive language; unequal treatment of female employees; sex-related statements and conduct; and harsh treatment of employees that on occasion constituted bullying.' Although witnesses claimed to have heard Sarver use the racist slur, the investigation found that he was either repeating the N-word or purporting to do so. The NBA did not find that Sarver used the term 'with the intent to demean or denigrate.'  In addition to saying the...
    Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin released a statement to the American military marking one year since the Afghanistan withdrawal Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said the United States' 'work is not done' in Afghanistan and defended the 20-year occupation as a 'necessary war of self-defense' on Tuesday. In a statement marking one year since the last American soldier left Kabul, Austin commended the 'noble service' of the military and the 2,461 troops who died while in Afghanistan since 2001. He also called on Americans to 'keep having' discussions 'about the costs of the war and what their sacrifices meant' even as Republicans accuse the Biden administration of trying to bury the chaotic withdrawal effort that marked the end of it. As the midterm elections draw near, GOP lawmakers have vowed to further investigation the withdrawal if they win the Congressional majority next year - as well as what led to the Taliban toppling Afghanistan's democratically-elected government within a matter of weeks. 'The United States went to Afghanistan in 2001 to wage a necessary war of self-defense. On September 11, 2001, al-Qaeda terrorists...

    Joe Biden's White House was working with the National Archives to investigate the records Donald Trump took with him to Mar-a-Lago and the former president knew back in May that he was under 'criminal investigation' on the matter. The National Archives found more than 700 pages of classified material in the 15 boxes of records recovered from Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in January, according to a May 10th letter from the acting archivist to Trump's attorney, posted online by John Solomon, a conservative journalist and Trump ally. The archives alerted the Justice Department about the discovery of the classified information, which included 'special access program materials,' some of the most highly classified secrets in government.  That notificiation triggered a grand jury investigation that eventually led to the FBI raid of Trump's Palm Beach home in August, where additional material was discovered. In her May letter, acting archivist Debra Steidel Wall warned Trump attorney Evan Corcoran that there was a criminal investigation into the material, meaning the former president knew for months he was under an ongoing probe. 'Access to the materials is...
    Share this:Today, Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney, Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, and Rep. Stephen F. Lynch, Chairman of the Subcommittee on National Security, sent a letter to Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III and the Secretaries of the Army, Navy, and Air Force requesting information about how the Department of Defense (DOD) and the military services conduct oversight of their respective Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) programs to ensure that program leaders, instructors, and administrators cannot abuse, harass, or otherwise victimize the cadets under their supervision.  The letter follows an alarming report from TheNew York Times detailing high rates of sexual misconduct and abuse within JROTC programs. “As the United States Armed Forces struggle to attract qualified recruits to enlist and serve our nation in uniform, the military services must redouble their efforts to promote the safety, well-being, and academic and personal growth of our country’s next generation of leaders, who will ultimately decide for themselves whether to pursue a career of military service,” the Chairs wrote. The New York Times investigation found that during the last five years, prosecutors have brought criminal charges against...
    Lawyer and CNN Contributor George Conway joined CNN Newsroom with Jim Acosta on Saturday and weighed the likelihood of a prosecution against former President Donald Trump after the FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago. Trump is being investigated over what one former FBI official described on Fox News as “heavyweight statutes” related classified government documents stored at his estate in Florida. The search warrant noted charges related to espionage and obstruction. Following the raid on Monday, the former president has presented numerous excuses including waging a campaign against federal law enforcement. When asked whether this raid could lead to criminal prosecution for Trump, Conway answered “I think the shortest distance between Donald Trump and an orange jumpsuit is this investigation with the documents.” “We haven’t heard anything remotely approaching a rational, logical defense,” continued Conway digging into the former president for his various excuses. Conway argued that if the documents contain material related to national defense and nuclear weaponry, “I don’t know what the defense,” of that could be. “The craziness of some of the assertions that they made,” signals to...
    By Dan Berman | CNN Former President Donald Trump is reportedly nearing a decision on when to announce a 2024 bid to return to the White House, but his legal troubles continue to build — not just with the recent FBI search at Mar-a-Lago. Multiple federal and state investigations are ongoing regarding the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol, his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election, his handling of confidential documents and his family business. Civil lawsuits accusing Trump of defamation and spurring on US Capitol rioters also remain on the docket. Here’s an updated list of notable investigations and lawsuits: White House documents: Did Trump mishandle classified material? The search warrant executed at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida on Monday sent shockwaves through the legal and political worlds and shows the Justice Department’s criminal investigation into the handling of classified information is accelerating. After days of misinformation on the right about the search, fueled by Trump and his allies, Attorney General Merrick Garland broke his silence on Thursday and announced that the department had filed in...
    The search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate is prompting speculation about what drove federal authorities to use unprecedented tactics against a former president whose rocky relationship with the Justice Department and FBI dates back to before he took office. Trump has equated the search of his property to Watergate and claims Democrats have weaponized the “justice system” against him. But with the search warrant under seal, much is still unknown about the nature of the investigation. “It’s never happened, and it never would happen if it weren’t Trump,” constitutional rights attorney Alan Dershowitz told the Washington Examiner. Dershowitz charged that “of course” the raid was politically motivated, equating it to the government’s pursuit of a Chicago mobster on federal income tax evasion or the tactics waged by Joseph Stalin’s longest-serving secret police chief. DOJ ORDERED TO RESPOND AFTER REQUESTS TO UNSEAL FBI'S TRUMP RAID WARRANT “This is an Al Capone prosecution. They couldn’t get Capone on what really wanted to get him on, so they got him on tax evasion,” he said. “This is a Lavrenti Beria prosecution....
    CNN Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin said the federal grand jury subpoenas of two former White House officials show the Department of Justice is probing the Oval Office of Donald Trump in connection with the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. On Wednesday, CNN reported that former White House Counsel Pat Cipollone and former Deputy White House Counsel Patrick Philbin were subpoenaed by a grand jury. The subpoenas would seem to indicate the DOJ is investigating the role Trump and his inner circle may have played in connection with the Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6, 2021. On that day, then-President Trump urged a mob to march to the Capitol, where its members breached the building and delayed certification of the 2020 election he lost. Trump reportedly even attempted to join the mob. Toobin appeared on Wednesday’s AC360 to discuss the subpoenas. “What does it say about where federal government, where the Department of Justice is on this?” Anderson Cooper asked. “Yeah, this is a really big deal, the change in the Justice Department investigation,” Toobin replied. “Remember, there was criticism for months...

    The 32-year-old Los Angeles police officer who suffered a fatal spinal cord injury during a training exercise in May was serving as a class instructor when he fell to the ground while holding another officer in a “bear hug,” according to an autopsy report by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office. The report, obtained by The Times on Wednesday, provides the most thorough account to date of how Officer Houston Tipping died and comes after weeks of secrecy by LAPD officials, who have refused to provide details of what occurred. The report’s findings contradict allegations made by Tipping’s mother that her son had been beaten by a group of overzealous officers attempting to “simulate a mob.” An attorney representing Tipping’s mother has publicly highlighted a laceration to Tipping’s head as evidence supporting their claim. But that injury and fractured ribs Tipping suffered were the result of efforts to save his life, according to the county’s medical examiner, who ruled the death an accident. Details in the autopsy report corroborate accounts from multiple sources familiar with the incident, who requested anonymity...

    New York Chief Judge Janet DiFiore is currently at the centre of a state ethics probe which was launched before her announcement on Monday that she was going to be retiring. The investigation is examining weather married DiFiore, 66, interfered in the disciplinary hearing of Dennis Quirk, the New York State Court Officers Association president. Quirk, an outspoken critic of the judge, faced punishment after being accused of writing a letter to DiFiore threatening to post copies of a newspaper story about an alleged affair. She was accused of having a relationship with a police officer in 2013, when she was working as a prosecutor, behind the back of her husband Dennis Glazer.  The state Commission on Judicial Conduct is investigating whether the judge wrongly interfered in his disciplinary hearing by writing to the hearing officer demanding he be punished. Quirk's disciplinary hearing was launched after he responded to a story in the New York Post which stated Judge DiFiore had ordered an 'independent review of the New York state court system's response to issues of institutional racism' after receiving...
    (CNN)The House January 6 committee "won't be an obstacle" to Department of Justice prosecutions, the committee spokesman said in a statement Friday.The comment was in response to Department of Justice concerns raised in court that the committee had not shared transcripts and was jeopardizing the department's ability to prosecute and investigate the January 6 events. The New York Times reported on Friday that the committee could now share them as soon as July. Several weeks ago, prosecutors told a court they did not anticipate the committee sharing them until September."The Select Committee is engaged in a cooperative process to address the needs of the Department of Justice," committee spokesman Tim Mulvey said in a statement provided to CNN. "We are not inclined to share the details of that publicly. We believe accountability is important and won't be an obstacle to the Department's prosecution."The panel's statement is the latest in a back-and-forth between the committee and the Justice Department, where the department is claiming the panel is slowing its investigation by not sharing its transcripts, while the panel maintains it is...
    Longtime WWE boss Vince McMahon has been replaced as CEO of the company by his daughter, amid an investigation into claims he paid $3million to a staffer and doubled her salary to keep her quiet while they were having an affair. McMahon, long the face of the wrestling firm, will reportedly step aside pending an investigation into 'alleged executive misconduct' to his behavior, by a special committee of the company's board of directors.  Former exec Stephanie McMahon, 45, who recently took a pause from the company herself earlier to 'focus on her family,' will serve as the wrestling interim chief executive officer until that investigation's conclusion, the company said.

    Virginia "Ginni" Thomas arrives to watch Amy Coney Barrett take the Constitutional Oath on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Monday, Oct. 26, 2020.Patrick Semansky/AP Facts matter: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter. Support our nonprofit reporting. Subscribe to our print magazine.The January 6 committee just announced that it plans to invite right-wing activist and Supreme Court spouse Ginni Thomas for questioning after months of stating that it was unlikely to solicit her testimony. The about-face occurred after the New York Times reported that she’d been in contact with lawyer John Eastman as he sought a legal basis to keep Trump in power.  “At this point, the information we have come upon…it’s time for us to invite her to come and talk,” committee leader Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Mississippi) told reporters Thursday.  This will no doubt trigger howls of condemnation from Republicans, who will claim that it’s yet another indication of the partisan skew of the (bipartisan) committee’s investigation. But at this point, it’s difficult to figure out what else the committee could have done. ...
    STOCKHOLM (AP) — An exploding tire led the driver of the unmarked police car carrying Swedish artist Lars Vilks, who had lived under police protection since his controversial 2007 sketch of the Prophet Muhammad, to lose control over the vehicle, which crashed head-on with a truck last year, Swedish authorities said Wednesday. The crash killed three people, including the 75-year-old cartoonist. Since Vilks was facing death threats for his drawings, it raised the question of whether the crash was a terror attack instead of an accident. But the Swedish Prosecution Authority said in a statement that it was “a tragic accident” as it announced the closure of the investigation into the Oct. 4 crash after an “extensive analysis, with a technical investigations on the spot and the questioning of witnesses.” “In summary, it is most likely that a tire on the police vehicle exploded and then the driver lost control of the vehicle, which came over on the other side of the road and collided head-on with the truck,” Chief Prosecutor Per Nichols said. ”The extensive investigation now shows that...
    Dallas police are under investigation for the death of a black, transgender woman who died in the back of an ambulance after cops arrested her and put her in a spit hood. Shocking bodycam footage from the arrest show police approach LaDamonyon Dewayne Hall, 47, on 26 May after getting calls that she might be intoxicated in public.  Hall initially appeared scared and confused as she cooperates with police and begins to cry, but then she became agitated.

    Department of Justice opens investigation into the Louisiana State Police Dept. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ)  is opening a civil rights investigation into the Louisiana State Police (LSP) department—the first probe into a statewide law enforcement agency in over two decades, the Associated Press reports.  Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke, who oversees the Justice Department’s civil rights division, explained to AP that the department found “significant justification” to open the investigation. “We received information of the repeated use of excessive force, often against people suspected of minor traffic offenses, who are already handcuffed or are not resisting. … There are reports that officers target Black residents in their traffic enforcement practices and in use of force,” Clark said. The agency’s “pattern-or-practice probe” is exploring evidence pointing to troopers and their bosses ignoring or participating in racist brutality disproportionately directed at Black men.

    Published: 06/09/2022 – 23:36 After the efforts of US intelligence, the Pentagon and NASA in turn began an investigation to understand the unidentified aerial events. The study, which is expected to last nine months starting in the fall, will be carried out by renowned scientists and astronomers. The possibility of extraterrestrial visits to Earth is certainly being taken more and more seriously in the United States: NASA launched on Thursday, June 9 in the fall of a multi-month investigation into unidentified aerial events – popular UFOs. Following the efforts of US intelligence and the Pentagon, NASA’s system is exploring the existence of these objects, for example moving abnormally or very rapidly in our atmosphere, and this cannot be explained by the current state of our knowledge. There is no evidence that these events are of extraterrestrial origin, the space agency immediately insisted. But “if someone asks me if I think there is evidence for an intelligent life in any of these cases, I will give a completely acceptable answer to a scientist, I do not know,” Thomas Zurbuchen,...
    “The suspect in this case and his medical condition is what’s preventing the investigation from being completed at this time,” said District Attorney Brian Seaman of Niagara County. “At such time if he’s able or returns to a physical condition where we’re able to complete the investigation, we will," he added. Two officers were placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation into the incident. Police were initially criticized for releasing few details about the shooting, including the racial identity of the suspect and the officers. Despite being the site of the world famous natural park, the city of Niagara Falls is one of the worst in the country in terms of violent crimes and property crimes.

    The top Republican on the House Oversight Committee on Tuesday condemned Democrats on the panel for opening an investigation into former President Donald Trump’s compliance with laws regarding foreign gifts. Rep. James Comer (R-KY), the panel's ranking member, reacted to a letter to Debra Wall, the acting archivist of the United States, in which committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) alleged Trump “failed to comply with the law governing foreign gift reporting” by not accurately accounting for the sources and value of gifts he received from foreign leaders during his presidency. REP. BUDDY CARTER INTRODUCES BILL FOR FEDERAL SCHOOL SAFETY REPORT Maloney asked the archivist to provide documents detailing the information the Trump administration allegedly failed to disclose, including the location, value, and source of all foreign gifts received by the former president and the current whereabouts of any such gifts. Wall was also asked to release any communications between Trump, members of his family, or administration officials regarding foreign gifts. In a statement to the Washington Examiner, Comer slammed the investigation as out of touch...

    The House Oversight Committee is launching an investigation into whether Jared Kushner used his White House position to attain a $2 billion investment from a Saudi Arabian wealth fund. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, chair of the Oversight and Reform Committee, wrote Kushner a letter on Thursday offering him a two-week deadline to provide documents related to the deal.  Six months after Kushner left the White House, his newly formed private equity firm Affinity Partners secured a $2 billion investment from Saudi Arabia's state-owned sovereign wealth fund, according to a New York Times report.  Kushner, Donald Trump's son-in-law and former White House senior adviser, secured the massive deal despite being flagged for its 'inexperience' and 'public relations risks' by a panel of economics experts who screen the Saudi wealth fund's investments. 'Your support for Saudi interests was unwavering, even as Congress and the rest of the world closely scrutinized the country’s human rights abuses in Yemen, the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi assassins tied to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and Saudi Arabia’s crackdown on political dissidents at home,' Maloney wrote in...
    (CNN)Pennsylvania GOP gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano has handed over some documents to the House select committee investigating the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol in response to a subpoena he received in March, his attorney told CNN. But there were clear limits to what Mastriano shared, raising questions about whether the panel will seek more information from one of former President Donald Trump's staunchest allies.Mastriano, a state senator, has also agreed to sit down for a voluntary interview with the committee, according to his attorney Tim Parlatore, who told CNN that his client is "happy to provide the information he has, aside from things that would be inappropriate due to legislative privilege."Included in the materials submitted by Mastriano this week were documents related to his work to help organize buses for pro-Trump rally attendees who traveled to Washington on January 6, 2021, and his letter to a top Justice Department official outlining various claims of voter fraud in Pennsylvania, according to the records, which were obtained by CNN.But the majority of the materials Mastriano provided are public social media...
    Last year, Mr. Republican. Trump sued Ms. James in federal court in Albany, arguing that the civil investigation into whether the Trump organization misled banks and tax authorities into valuing his assets should be stopped. Ms James, a Democrat, used the case to improve her political career. Ms. James responded in a January court document that Mr Trump’s “political differences of opinion cannot isolate him from the trial.” U.S. District Judge Brenda Sannes dismissed the case Friday, saying in a written ruling that there was “no evidence” that James’ trial was conducted in false faith. “No one can choose how the law applies to them in this country, and Donald Trump is no exception,” James said in a statement. “We will continue this investigation without hindrance.” Trump’s lawyer, Alina Hubba, said in a statement that she would appeal the decision, saying James’ “misconduct and harassment investigation” met the definition of misconduct. The decision is the latest blow to Trump’s various challenges to the investigation. The state Interim Court of Appeals on Thursday ruled that Trump and his...
    Democrats on Capitol Hill have opened an investigation into multiple gun manufacturers whose products have been used to slaughter innocent people in hundreds of mass shootings throughout the United States. The Washington Post reported on Friday that Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-New York), who chairs the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in the House of Representatives, sent letters to the heads of "Daniel Defense, the maker of the DDM4 rifle the gunman used to kill 19 children and two adults at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, and Bushmaster, the maker of the Bushmaster XM-15 semiautomatic rifle that the suspected Buffalo shooter said he illegally modified and then used to kill 10 people at a Tops Friendly Markets store." The documents, which were shared exclusively with the Post, represent a renewed effort by gun control advocates to hold weapons makers accountable for the carnage they inflict when they fall into the wrong hands. One of Maloney's principal foci was how Daniel Defense marketed "an AR-15-style rifle" to kids, referencing a picture with “a caption quoting a biblical proverb to 'Train...

    (CNN)The FBI is conducting an internal review into possible misconduct related to the Trump-Russia investigation, including potentially improper handling of a surveillance warrant that was used early in the investigation, an FBI agent revealed Tuesday in federal court.FBI supervisory agent Curtis Heide testified that an administrative inquiry is underway, and that multiple FBI agents are being scrutinized, including himself. Heide said the inquiry is being handled by the FBI's Inspection Division, which conducts internal audits and can refer any wrongdoing it finds to the Office of Professional Responsibility, which can recommend discipline or even firings. Hillary Clinton personally approved plan to share Trump-Russia allegation with the press in 2016, campaign manager saysThe testimony came at the trial of Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, who was charged by special counsel John Durham. The revelations aren't directly tied to the case against Sussmann, but Heide was called as a witness because he was involved in the FBI probe into the Trump-Russia tip that Sussmann brought to the bureau in 2016. Sussmann has pleaded not guilty.Heide said he was under investigation for...
    Republican North Carolina Rep. Madison Cawthorn will spend his last months in Congress facing an ethics investigation over claims he had an improper relationship with a staffer in his office and improperly promoted a cryptocurrency. The House Ethics Committee launched an investigation on Monday a week after the 26-year-old congressman was defeated in his Republican primary in North Carolina. It is the latest blow to the lawmaker once seen as a rising star in the GOP after a slew of scandals and a smear campaign he claimed was blackmail.  The Committee said in a statement that they considered investigating him for driving with a revoked license, but decided against it.  Last Thursday,  as he emerged for the first time since his election night loss, he took to Instagram to rage against the Republican establishment's criticism of his laundry list of scandals and calling for 'dark MAGA' to rise. After his loss, the lawmaker said he is 'on a mission now to expose those who say and promise one thing yet legislate and work toward another, self-profiteering, globalist goal.' Cawthorn also...
    JUSTICE should be blind and should be applied equally.

In February, Durham Constabulary decided no rules had been broken during an alleged beer-and-curry party attended by Sir Keir.

    State regulators have ordered an internal investigation into the Golden West College police academy after allegations of hazing surfaced. Former training officer Sheddi Skeete submitted a complaint last week alleging that training officers were treating recruits unprofessionally. He has since left the academy, citing inappropriate and questionable practices he described as “improper, cruel and punitive.” Skeete, a 28-year police veteran who is an officer at the Anaheim Police Department, filed the complaint to the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training on April 24 after nine months as a full-time training officer at the academy. In the complaint submitted to the commission, Skeete reported that recruits are subjected to pointless lunch inspections that often cut their 30-minute lunch break in half. He wrote that training officers make recruits go into formation and open lunch packs in unison as officers identify restricted items such as sugary foods. Skeete says he also watched as one recruit become a mark for unwarranted ridicule inside and outside the classroom. “Administering stress is appropriate, but there must be a reason for everything to do,” Skeete...

    (CNN) — Chief Justice John Roberts says the Supreme Court will investigate the release of a draft opinion that would strike down Roe v. Wade and called the episode “a singular and egregious breach” of trust. “This was a singular and egregious breach of that trust that is an affront to the Court and the community of public servants who work here. I have directed the Marshal of the Court to launch an investigation into the source of the leak,” Roberts said in a statement Tuesday.

    Crews use an excavator to pull down pieces of a damaged roof during search and rescue operations at the Amazon distribution center in Eadwardsville, Illinois, on Saturday, Dec. 11, 2021, after overnight severe storms caused the building to partially collapse.

Subscribe to our print magazine.The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will not be issuing any fines to Amazon despite an investigation finding multiple safety risks at the company’s Edwardsville, Illinois warehouse facility where, late last year, a Category 3 tornado hit killing six people.  The announcement from the nation’s federal worker safety watchdog came on Tuesday. The investigation into the disaster showed that Amazon complied with minimal federal storm shelter guidelines despite some unsafe conditions. In part, this is because the bar is incredibly low. As I reported last week, OSHA does not have required standards for severe weather emergency plans. Instead those plans are recommended under the Occupational and Safety Health Act’s General Duty Clause. Without...

    (CNN)A month after a 14-year-old plummeted to his death from a Florida amusement park ride, his family is suing a bevy of defendants, saying a series of mistakes put visitors in danger and led to their child's fatal fall. Tyre Sampson was visiting ICON Park on March 24 when he got on the Orlando FreeFall drop tower ride, described by its operators as the world's tallest freestanding drop tower. It sends passengers up and then drops them nearly 400 feet at speeds reaching more than 75 mph, according to the park. The mis-adjustment of a harness sensor contributed to a teens deadly fall from his amusement ride seat, engineering firm findsHorrific bystander video shows Tyre -- who weighed about 380 pounds, the suit states, and was known to loved ones as a "gentle giant" -- slipping out of the ride and falling to his death. A harness sensor in Tyre's seat had been "manually loosened, adjusted and tightened," allowing for a greater gap than normal between his harness and his seat, an investigation by a forensic engineering firm commissioned by...
    Metaverse has been branded an 'online Wild West' by child safety campaigners after Channel 4's Dispatches uncovered evidence of sexual abuse and racism in the virtual reality world. An investigation has revealed that sexually explicit comments and threatening behaviour were made minutes after a Channel 4 journalist went undercover into Mark Zuckerberg's 3D community. Led by the Facebook founder, the Metaverse is a set of virtual spaces where you can game, work and communicate with other people who aren't in the same physical space as you. Users' avatars are able to explore the online world and meet, interact and visit a fast-growing network of virtual locations such as cities, country scenes or cafes. But the new technology has faced accusations over a lack of safeguarding and moderation, with mother Nina Jane Patel claiming she was sexually assaulted less than a minute after entering the virtual online world earlier this year. The Center for Countering Digital Hate also earlier found that users, including minors, 'are exposed to abusive behaviour every seven minutes'. Now a Channel 4 probe has raised further concern over...
    A controversial Harvard scientist says he wants to launch an investigation into a meteor that he believes is actually alien technology lying at the bottom of Pacific Ocean.  Last week, the US Space Command confirmed that a meteor that hit Earth in January 2014 did come from another solar system and is therefore the first known interstellar object. US Space Command officials have said that the meteor, measuring just 1.5 feet across, 'was indeed an interstellar object'. Their confirmation means the famous interstellar object known as Oumuamua, discovered in 2017, is actually the second interstellar object to visit our solar system. Harvard physicist Avi Loeb (pictured) claimed on Wednesday that a meteor that hit Earth in January 2014 is instead a piece of alien technology According to NASA, the meteor soared through skies near Papua New Guinea at more than 100,000 miles per hour and impacted near Manus Island on January 8, 2014 (concept image) The memo, dated March 1 and shared on Twitter this month, signs off findings from US Space Command chief scientist Dr Joel Mozer But Harvard physicist Avi Loeb...
    The fate of the country's top counterintelligence official hangs in the balance after reports claim he sexually harassed staff, had affairs with a subordinate, and interfered with a secret UFO program. Garry Reid, the Department of Defense's (DoD) Director for Defense Intelligence, was recently relieved of his duties, according to reports by Politico and science and technology news site The Debrief, after a damning Inspector General investigation. The Pentagon issued a statement on Friday saying he is still in his job.  But operators at the DoD switchboard told DailyMail.com Reid no longer has a job title linked to his name, and his phone number is no longer answered by someone at the office of the Director for Defense Intelligence but switched over to another office at the department. Lue Elizondo, a former senior staffer, claims in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com that the counterintelligence chief is in the process of being dismissed for a spat over UFOs – and that his replacement is his alleged mistress. Elizondo, who ran a secret government UFO monitoring program in Reid's department until 2017,...
    (CNN)Questions always arise when tragedy strikes. So when a 14-year-old boy fell to his death on March 24 on an amusement park ride in Orlando, Florida, there were questions about who should be held responsible and how the incident happened in the first place.Tyre Sampson fell from the Orlando FreeFall drop tower, which takes riders up and then drops them nearly 400 feet at speeds that reach more than 75 mph, according to ICON Park, where the incident happened. Two seats on the FreeFall were manually adjusted "presumably, to allow for larger riders," according to an April 18 statement by state Rep. Geraldine Thompson based on a report produced by Quest Engineering & Failure Analysis, Inc., a forensic engineering firm hired to investigate the incident.One of the ride's seats had been loosened, adjusted and tightened for a restraint that was 4 inches more than the normal opening range, the report said. The FreeFall manufacturer's guideline puts a rider's weight limit at 250 pounds.Read More"My son was 6'5, 340. So, he's a big guy," said Tyre's father, Yarnell Sampson.His death is...
    Remember when Trump and his adult offspring stacked up a bunch of file folders in Trump Tower and claimed they were his financial records? Remember when his auditors came back years later and said, um, it turns out we can't actually vouch for any of this stuff? In the long grind of sketchy political stories, we've now got enough straight-up corruption news piled up to last the rest of Donald Trump's remaining life. It's still not clear anything will actually come of it, because it's also been demonstrated that you can do ab-so-lute-ly anything, so long as you are willing to pay for more lawyers than state or federal governments are willing to pay for theirs—but we have a general picture. The citrus-tinted blowhard has for decades been part of an American subclass that dabbles in everything from money laundering to tax cheating to boosting international oligarchies to sex trafficking to immigration fraud to take-your-pick, all of it backed by banks whose bottom lines depend on looking the other way and an American political class that will write new laws...
    In January, the U.S. National Archives retrieved 15 boxes of White House records from former President Donald Trump’s home at his Mar-a-Lago resort in South Florida. Now, according to the New York Times, the FBI is getting ready to investigate the “handling of classified material” found at Mar-a-Lago. Here are four important details reported by Times journalists Luke Broadwater and Adam Goldman on April 7. 1. Moving the material was apparently in violation of federal law. Under the Presidential Records Act of 1978, presidential records must be turned over to the National Archives. But Trump and his allies have maintained that he did nothing wrong when those records were moved to Mar-a-Lago from the White House, claiming that reports to the contrary are “fake news.” Times journalists Luke Broadwater and Adam Goldman, reporting on the FBI investigation, explain, “The effort, led by the FBI, stems from the discovery of classified information in 15 boxes that contained documents, mementos, gifts and letters that had been taken from the White House at the end of Mr. Trump’s term in apparent violation of...

    A crash involving two Black Hawk helicopters at a Georgia airfield that killed one soldier "was not an accident," according to an individual with knowledge of the investigation. The incident at Fort Stewart's Wright Army Airfield took place on March 30 at about 2 a.m., killing Capt. James Bellew, 26, an Army pilot, and is under criminal investigation, according to the Army Times. The Army's Criminal Investigation Division is looking into the crash, which involved two UH-60 helicopters, though no determinations of the cause have been made, Fort Stewart spokesman Kevin Larson told the Washington Examiner. SOLDIER KILLED IN 'INCIDENT' WITH TWO HELICOPTERS AT GEORGIA AIRFIELD "All manners of death are considered when investigating a noncombat-related death of a soldier," Larson said. "In many cases, it is simply too early to be certain of those determinations within the first few days, or sometimes several weeks." Bellew, who was on MEDEVAC duty at the time, was the only crewmember involved or injured in the incident. "MEDEVAC crews sleep on site to remain on call at...
