    The owner of a Las Vegas smoke shop was seen on video stabbing a would-be robber seven times after he attempted to jump the counter.  Johnny Nguyen, the clerk working the counter of Smokestrom Smoke Shop on Wednesday, saw two people described only as juveniles enter wearing masks, according to 8NewsNow.  Nguyen can be heard asking: 'Why are you guys wearing masks like that?' After they refuse to answer, he requests them 'to just leave'.  The clerk said that 'at first I thought they were normal customers and then I realized they had like ski masks on. I had to assume they had a firearm so I just wanted to make sure I could protect myself'. He adds that though he never saw a visible firearm, he felt 'I couldn't take that chance' given the situation.  The owner of a Las Vegas smoke shop was seen on video stabbing a would-be robber seven times after he attempted to jump the counter Johnny Nguyen (pictured), the clerk working the counter of Smokestrom Smoke Shop on Wednesday, saw two people described only...

    The man said that the suspect then charged straight at him, still wielding the knife, so the man pulled out his gun and shot the suspect four times. Once the suspect fell, he and the clerk both called police. “I don’t think I honestly had a choice. He already had a knife at her throat, he could’ve pulled out something bigger than what I had. Then, you would’ve had two people dead instead of one,” he said. When police arrived, emergency medical teams transported the suspect — later identified as Lance Bush, a 26-year-old homeless man from St. Louis — to the hospital, where he died. Bush is believed to have robbed at least one other gas station earlier that morning by holding a knife to the throat of the attendant and forcing her to give him money from the register. The black SUV he was driving had also been reported stolen on Friday. “Taking somebody’s life is not an everyday thing, neither is saving someone’s life,” the man with the gun said. When asked why he elected to confront...
    Georgia is set to swear in its new Supreme Court justice next week. “The Honorable Andrew A. Pinson will be sworn in as a Justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia on Wednesday, July 20, at 1 p.m.,” said a release from the state Supreme Court’s website. “Gov. Brian Kemp will administer the oath of office in the House Chamber of the State Capitol Building.” “Judge Pinson most recently served on the Georgia Court of Appeals, the state’s intermediate appellate court,” the release said. According to his appellate court biography, Pinson is a native of DeKalb County who completed both his undergraduate studies and law studies at the University of Georgia. “In law school, Judge Pinson served as the Executive Articles Editor of the Georgia Law Review and research assistant to Professors Dan T. Coenen and Peter “Bo” Rutledge,” according to his biography. “He also interned for the Executive Counsel in the Office of Governor Sonny Perdue, and he worked for Jones Day in Atlanta and Fortson, Bentley, & Griffin in Athens as a summer associate and law clerk, respectively.”...

    (CNN)In most other pockets of the federal government, a public employee's decision to lawyer up in the face of an internal investigation would be a no-brainer. But for Supreme Court clerks now being asked to cooperate with new steps in the court's leak probe, such a move could upend the trajectories of their careers.Legal experts have said that the disclosure to Politico of a draft Supreme Court opinion ending the right to an abortion is likely not, by itself, a crime. But clerks now are in a precarious position with the move -- as reported exclusively by CNN Tuesday -- by court officials tasked with leading the investigation to ask that they turn over private phone data and sign affidavits. A clerk may potentially be viewed with suspicion if they hesitate to cooperate or seek outside counsel before participating.Exclusive: Supreme Court leak investigation heats up as clerks are asked for phone records in unprecedented move"The clerks are probably the most vulnerable workers who had access to that information in the building, because their career could be dramatically affected by how...

The right conveniently forgets acts of violence Re. “Supreme Court leak is unprecedented betrayal,” Letters to the Editor, Page A6, May 19: The writer claims to be shocked that some people protested the leak of the Supreme Court’s intention of banning abortion in the United States. Their anger led them to vandalize a pro-life center. She says, “I’ve never heard of Republicans stooping this low.” I’ve heard of raids on abortion clinics and even the killing of the doctors who perform them. Isn’t murder worse than vandalism? Perhaps the writer wasn’t aware of the group of Trumpers who charged the Congress of the United States with the goal of hanging the vice president, killing Democrats and overtaking our elected and constitutionally authorized government. Me thinks she protests too much. Jim Cauble Hayward Vote for Murphy for clerk-recorder I want to share why I’m supporting Devin T. Murphy for Contra Costa County clerk-recorder.

    Justice Clarence Thomas on Friday compared the leak of fellow Justice's Samuel Alito's draft opinion regarding Roe v Wade to 'infidelity.' Thomas, 73, said that the leak would weaken the public's trust in the Supreme Court as an institution.  He told host John Yoo that the leak from the Supreme Court was 'tremendously bad.'  Thomas pondered: 'I wonder how long we’re going to have these institutions at the rate we’re undermining them and then I wonder when they’re gone or destabilized what we will have as a country and I don’t think the prospects are good if we continue to lose them.'   He continued: 'When you lose that trust, especially in the institution that I'm in, it changes the institution fundamentally. You begin to look over your shoulder. It's like kind of an infidelity – that you can explain it but you can't undo it,' reports Politico.  Thomas was speaking at the Old Parkland Conference, a meeting of black conservatives, in Dallas where he was Friday's keynote speaker. Following his speech, Thomas sat for a questions and answers session with John Yoo...
    Chief Justice John Roberts also spoke out about the leak. After he confirmed the draft is authentic, Roberts described the leak as "absolutely appalling." "If the person behind it thinks that it will affect our work, that’s just foolish," Roberts said Thursday at a judicial conference.Anything else?The source of the leak is being investigated by Col. Gail Curley, marshal of the Supreme Court. The identity of the leaker, presumed to be a law clerk, remains unknown. However, few people have access to opinion drafts, thus narrowing the scope of potential suspects. The criminality of such a leak is debatable. Still, theories about the source of the leak have fallen on partisan lines. Conservatives have suggested a left-leaning law clerk leaked the opinion draft to trigger societal upheaval and to pressure the court's conservative-leaning justices to change their votes. Others, however, charge that a conservative clerk leaked the opinion draft to pin down the court's conservative-leaning justices from changing their vote. NPR reporter Nina Totenberg claimed Sunday the "leading theory" is that a conservative clerk was behind the leak. However, she...
    NPR’s Nina Totenberg, thought by many to be America’s premier reporter covering the Supreme Court, believes that a conservative law clerk is the likeliest suspect for the bombshell leak of Justice Samuel Alito’s draft decision overturning Roe v. Wade. Appearing on ABC’s This Week Sunday, Totenberg posited that a conservative clerk’s likely motive was to prevent one of the conservative justices from being persuaded by Chief Justice John Roberts to issue a more narrow ruling in the case. “The leading theory is a conservative clerk, who was afraid that one of the conservatives might be persuaded by Chief Justice Roberts to join a much more moderate opinion,” Totenberg said. The NPR reporter acknowledged the possibility of a liberal clerk being responsible, but dismissed that theory as implausible. “There’s another theory that it was an outraged liberal clerk,” Totenberg said. “But I think the only one that makes sense is that it came from somebody who was afraid that this majority might not hold. That Chief Justice Roberts might persuade one of the conservatives come over to him...
    Media personalities across the political spectrum reacted to the shocking leak of the draft of a majority opinion of the U.S. Supreme Court in an unprecedented breach of court custom. Written by Justice Samuel Alito, the opinion shows the court is set to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark reproductive rights case that established a constitutional right to an abortion. Alan Dershowitz, appeared with Sean Hannity on Monday night to give his reaction to the breaking news. “I strongly oppose overruling Roe vs. Wade after 50 years, but I think it will be overruled,” the Harvard Law professor stated. He then theorized who leaked the opinion and why: I have a theory, and it’s only a theory. I think this was leaked by a liberal law clerk who was trying to change the outcome of the case, either by putting pressure on some of the justices to Change their mind, or by getting Congress to pack the court even before June, which is very unlikely, or to get Congress to pass a national right-to-abortion law, which would apply to all...
    CENTENNIAL, Colo (CBS4) — It was Thanksgiving Day 2020. Samuel Birch said “thank you” to a gas station clerk after robbing the business. And pulled the trigger anyhow. It was Birch’s second robbery of the day. The clerk, 24-year-old Mauricio Omar Perez, died at the hospital while in surgery. Birch was found guilty by an Arapahoe County jury March 10 of all charges, murder and robbery the primary counts. Birch, 32, faces life in prison for the murder convictions alone. He is scheduled to be sentenced April 22. Surveillance photo of suspect in the gas station homicide on Thanksgiving. (credit: Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office) Prosecutors used surveillance video which recorded Birch entering the the Circle K convenience store at 8263 South Quebec Street. He was wearing a mask and hooded sweatshirt. Birch approached the counter and asked for a carton of cigarettes. As Perez rang up the order, Birch, as prosecutors described, calmly pointed a long-barreled revolver through the plexiglass divider and began demanding everything in the cash register.

    Sherri Papini hid out at the apartment belonging to her former fiancé who she had known since she was 13, DailyMail.com can reveal. Papini, 39, was arrested last Thursday, accused of faking her kidnapping in 2016 with James Reyes, 37, a man she has a 'long history' with, according to the indictment. Reyes told police that Papini contacted him 'out of the blue' in 2015 and told her she 'planned to run away with him'. She stayed at his home in Costa Mesa, California, for 22 days while police in her hometown of Redding, California, and the FBI conducted a frantic search for her. Papini reappeared battered and bruised three weeks later and told police she had been kidnapped by two Hispanic women. Now prosecutors claim the whole thing was a sham and that she branded and starved herself. Shasta County Sheriff Michael Johnson said on Monday others would likely face charges and slammed Papini as a 'selfish narcissist'   Papini has been accused of making false statements and mail fraud and she is facing up to 20 years in...
    Two Tennessee fugitives who crawled through an air vent to escape from jail have died crashing their stolen truck after a police chase a day after their escape.  Tobias Carr, 38, Johnny Brown 50, and Timothy Sarver, 45, were all in the Sullivan County Jail in Blountville, Tennessee, last week on charges that varied from murder to tampering with evidence, domestic violence and identity theft.  It's unclear if they knew each other before they found themselves locked up together, but on February 4, the three men escaped from the jail through one of the air vents in the ceiling of the jail. They crawled through the vent from their cell.   They fled the state of Tennessee, traveling first to Virginia, and then to North Carolina where Carr and Sarver robbed a grocery store at gunpoint at 4.30am on Saturday.  Timothy Sarver, 45, and Tobias Carr, 38, escaped from jail in Tennessee on Friday along with a third inmate. The pair died on Saturday, 400 miles away, while fleeing police in a stolen truck after robbing a convenience store at gunpoint...
    Georgetown Law has been accused of having a double standard when it comes to disciplinary action against faculty after it placed one professor one leave for  criticizing Joe Biden but not another who took a shot at Donald Trump.  Newly hired Ilya Shapiro, who was placed on administrative leave ahead of his February 1 start date, drew outrage from the student body and other Twitter users over his apparent suggestion that the best Supreme Court nominee to replace Justice Stephen Breyer could not be a black woman.  'Objectively best pick for Biden is Sri Srinivasan, who is solid prog & v smart [sic],' he tweeted. 'Even has identify politics benefit of being first Asian (Indian) American. But alas doesn't fit into the latest intersectionality hierarchy so we'll get lesser black woman. Thank heaven for small favors?'   However, the university neglected to take action against law professor Heidi Li Feldman in 2020 after she took to Twitter arguing 'law professors and law school deans' should 'not support applications from our students to clerk for' judges appointed by former President Donald Trump. She also said working 'for such a judge...
    Jana Duggar has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child in Arkansas.  The reality TV star has been charged with a misdemeanor charge, an Elms Springs district clerk confirmed to Daily Mail. The local county clerk confirmed she was cited on September 9, 2021.   An Elm Springs district clerk confirmed that she has entered a plea deal and is expected to appear in the Washington County District Court on January 10.   The news comes one day after her brother Josh was found guilty of downloading a vile trove of 'the worst of the worst' child porn.  He was charged with two counts of downloading and possessing child pornography.  Jana was spotted attending her brother's trial in Fayetteville, Arkansas on Tuesday. She appeared in 'high spirits laughing and mingling with family during breaks, including Josh,' The Sun reported.  Jana is the second child and first daughter of Jim and Michelle Duggar. 
    The woman elected Carson’s city clerk in a special election last month resigned from the post just one day after being sworn in. Myla Rahman’s official resignation, sent to the City Council via email on Wednesday, did not provide details about her sudden decision, said City Manager Sharon Landers. Landers also declined to comment on the resignation beyond confirming it. Rahman did not respond to multiple requests for comment. Her social media pages, including her Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts have been removed. It is unclear exactly when they were taken down. A district chief of staff for state Sen. Steven Bradford, she was elected during a Nov. 2 special election. Her predecessor stepped down in April to take the same position — though as an appointee — in Riverside. “Running for Carson City Clerk has been a long-time dream of mine,” Rahman wrote on her campaign website. “I’m pouring my heart and soul into this campaign and I can’t do it alone.” She secured endorsements from Bradford, Rep. Nannette Diaz-Barragan, Assemblyman Mike Gipson and Carson’s mayor and two councilmen....
    The Houston Police Department’s (HPD) Robbery Division says it is searching for a suspect who shot a gas station clerk in the face during an attempted robbery Monday night.

                        The Eastern District Court of Virginia dismissed Senator Amanda Chase’s (R-Chesterfield) lawsuit over her censure by the Senate. On Wednesday, Judge Robert Payne granted a motion to dismiss filed by Attorney General Mark Herring on behalf of the Senate and the Clerk of the Senate. In April, Herring argued that the Senate and the Clerk have sovereign immunity and that the Senate’s decision to censure is a “non-justiciable” political question. Chase argued that the censure was a violation of her free speech rights, since it was based on public comments Chase made, including at the U.S. Capitol January 6 rally that turned deadly. But in his decision, Judge Robert Payne agreed with Herring’s argument, finding that the Senate and the Clerk of the Senate have sovereign immunity from civil suits. That was enough for him to dismiss the lawsuit without considering if censure is a political question outside the scope of the court. Chase has not announced if she will appeal. Chase’s lawyer Tim Anderson explained his case...
    A Florida gas station clerk who intervened in the alleged kidnapping of a woman on Mother's Day while working a weekend shift said all she could think of at the time was to "get her safe into the store with me." Rachel Craddock told FOX Tampa Bay that she was working on Sunday afternoon when a man accused of beating and forcing a woman inside a vehicle stopped at the Citgo gas station in Inverness, located 76 miles north of Tampa. The man, identified by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office as Cody Jackson, struck the woman inside a home in Seffner with a piece of wood to the head.  He then forced her into a car and drove away, authorities said. At one point he stopped and tied her ankles and wrists with extension cords, authorities said. He then drove to the gas station.  When he went inside, the woman broke free from the restraints and ran toward a side door in the gas station.  "He seen [sic] the woman that he had bound in the car escape from the...
    Police in Washington, D.C., are investigating after a man, who was captured on surveillance video footage, appeared to pummel an Asian clerk on Tuesday. The suspect, who has yet to be identified, can be seen conversing with the shop owner, Chuong Hu Lu, before he appears to knock him to the ground with a right hook and punch him several times while he tries to recover. Hu Lu said the individual remarked, "F*** you, Chinese people. I hate Chinese" during the assault, according to Fox 5. "I’m really scared," he told the outlet. "We didn’t do nothing wrong. He just asked me one question. I just said, ‘No.’ Then, he punch me and say, ‘F*** you, Chinese people. I hate Chinese. Why you do me like this?’ I didn’t even do nothing wrong."

About one hour into Day Three of the murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, a juror needed proceedings to pause due to a “stress-related reaction.” The trial day ended with the jury being shown several clips of body-camera video showing officers detaining the man Chauvin is accused of murdering, George Floyd. In between the trial’s tumultuous start and its hard-to-watch close, the jury heard emotional testimony on Wednesday from a teen store clerk and a witness who had tried repeatedly to get Floyd to do what officers were telling him to do. “You can’t win!” Charles McMillian shouted at Floyd during his detainment. In court, the witness sobbed on the stand when he was shown footage of Floyd calling for his mother and begging for his life. “I couldn’t help but feel helpless,” McMillian said. Chauvin’s defense decided not to cross-examine McMillian. ”Nearly every witness so far has cried at some point in their testimony, and not just because of the...
    The trial of Derek Chauvin offers the political, civic and business leaders of the city of Minneapolis an opportunity to redeem themselves for decades of their neglect to stop police violence. It is time to stop passing the problem on to yet another City Council and mayor. The trial presents city leaders with an opportunity to take decisive, bold action to end the militarized police presence that acts as an occupational force in our city. The recent killing of Dolal Idd by the MPD, in coordination with the state’s BCA, is the latest example of law enforcement out of control. The world is watching, not only the trial of Derek Chauvin, but the trial of the city of Minneapolis for its negligence, culpability and complicity that perpetuates police violence. The city is on trial. City leaders at this writing are simply repeating the past. Do as little as possible, placate the public and heap praise on themselves for reforms that are not substantially different from those of past decades. The fact that officers are still on the MPD who killed...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A 7-Eleven convenience store clerk is dead after an attack on the job in Sacramento’s South Land Park. Gurpreet Singh, 31, was found lying on the floor by a customer at 3 a.m. Monday. He was alive. Paramedics took him to a hospital where he died. CBS13 was there as Francis Saso left a candle and flowers outside the store to remember Singh, who always greeted her with kindness. “And I come over here all the time, and it’s just sad because we see him all the time,” Saso said, “always telling me have a good night, be safe, and that right there is just like one of the main reasons why we came and put flowers because he wasn’t safe.” Coworkers outside the store together all day.  The owner says he was keeping to store closed for the day to honor Singh, who leaves behind a wife and 5-year-old daughter living in India. Sacramento police won’t say how Singh was attacked in the store overnight. Mike Bartholomew manages the gas station convenience store next door. “I...

    London (CNN)Was the Zoom meeting of the century called illegally? Had all participants read and understood the standing orders? And, most importantly, did Jackie Weaver have the authority to kick Handforth Parish Council's chairman out of the discussion?Those were the questions engrossing Britain on Friday, after a chaotic, tension-packed and technologically challenged meeting of local government officials from a tiny English town went viral. Nissans office pod imagines a new kind of remote workingThe video appears innocuous enough at first: a pre-Christmas get-together of councillors, to discuss matters relating to their quaint northern English location. But what follows may be the greatest, most ridiculous thing to come out of the past year: a truly anarchic 80 minutes of microphone failures, flushing toilets, insurrections and outright shouting matches that perfectly encapsulated the frustrations of lockdown."This meeting has not been called according to the law.

    The Trump campaign is sowing the same seeds of distrust in the nation’s election that was expected originate from foreign adversaries like Russia. That’s the takeaway that one county clerk from Madison, Wisconsin offered up on MSNBC on Wednesday, as he prepared for a recount requested and paid for by the Trump campaign. Dane County Clerk Scott McDonald — appearing with Milwaukee County Clerk George Christiansen — explained to MSNBC anchor Ayman Mohyeldin that his jurisdiction’s vote count went especially smoothly this cycle and that he saw no irregularities in the handling of both the mail-in and in-person ballots. And yet, his county and Milwaukee County, which are also home to the state’s two largest minority populations, had been singled out for baseless accusations of election misconduct by the Trump campaign. “Let me ask you really quickly, then, Clerk McDonald, about the sheer volume of misinformation coming from the White House about so-called irregularities,” Mohyeldin said. “How are you dealing with it?” “It’s so frustrating,” McDonald replied. “You know, we were trained. George and I trained for a year and a...

    NASA astronaut Kate Rubins, the only American not on the planet, said the experience of voting in space is special. “It’s an honor for us,” she said in response to a question from Fox News during a press conference from the International Space Station on Friday. Rubins, who cast her vote from the ISS on Oct. 22, described voting as a duty. “We feel very lucky to vote from space,” she added. NASA ASTRONAUT KATE RUBINS HAS CAST HER BALLOT FROM SPACE “It’s actually pretty similar to the process of voting by absentee ballot from home,” the astronaut explained. She noted that the Federal Postcard Application (FPCA) that astronauts use is the same that military personnel and their families use when they are overseas. “I don’t know that I am technically overseas,” she quipped. “The ballot is encrypted to us - we send it back down.” The astronaut used her small crew quarters on the orbiting space lab as a voting booth, complete with a makeshift sign.

    An immigration court located at the Aurora ICE facility is shutting down hearings for ten days following a large outbreak of COVID-19 among detainees. "Nobody knows what's going on. People are scared. People are anxious. Nobody is getting their court dates," says a detainee who recently tested positive for COVID while staying at the facility, and asked that his name not be used for fear of retaliation. Westword spoke with multiple immigration attorneys who say they were recently told by the court's clerk that hearings would be canceled for ten days.Related Stories COVID Outbreak in Aurora ICE Facility, Nineteen New Positives Detainee Transfers Lead to COVID-19 Increase at Aurora ICE Facility House Subcommittee Report Takes Aim at Aurora Immigrant Detention Facility "When I asked whether it was regarding the COVID outbreak, [the clerk staffer] simply said, 'That’s all of the information we are being given by ICE,'" says immigration attorney Ariana Fuentes, who has a client with an upcoming bond hearing that has now been delayed over three weeks because of the closure.

    During Día de Los Muertos, people remember and pay respect to deceased friends and relatives. For artist Tony Ortega, that means celebrating the three most important women in his life: his mother, grandmother and great-aunt. Ortega was an infant when his mother brought him to Denver from Pecos, New Mexico, searching for better job opportunities. While she moved from working as a janitor, waitress and nurse's aide in a senior home to eventually getting an admissions-clerk position at Denver General Hospital, she always wanted the best for her son. His grandmother was a seamstress and storyteller who made clothes, embroidered, crocheted and quilted, which influenced Ortega's artistic beginnings. His great-aunt also helped raise him. At the Longmont Museum's twentieth-anniversary Día de Los Muertos exhibit, which runs from Friday, October 2, through January 9, Ortega plans to honor them all.  Related Stories Painter Earl Chuvarsky's When Things Fall Apart Inspired by 2020 Big Ideas: Think 360 Arts Launches Online Arts Education Series 100 Colorado Creatives 4.0: Tony Ortega "[El Día de Los Muertos] helps me take time out...
    Amy Coney Barrett, President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court, is already under attack by left-wing politicians and activists, but the outpouring of support for Barrett is also surfacing, including a professor of law at her alma mater, the University of Notre Dame. O. Carter Snead wrote an oped in the Washington Post on Saturday titled, “I’ve known Amy Coney Barrett for 15 years. Liberals Have Nothing to Fear.” In his oped, Snead shared his experience with Barrett’s humanity, including while she was a professor at Notre Dame: A few years ago, a blind student matriculated as a first-year law student at Notre Dame. Upon arrival, she encountered delays in getting the technological support she needed to carry out her studies. After only a few days in Barrett’s class, the student asked her for advice. Barrett’s response was “This is no longer your problem. It is my problem.” Barrett followed up with university administration herself, got the student what she needed, and then mentored her for three years. That student just completed her...
