But no such evaluation was scheduled.A timeline of the 11-day escape and capture of Vicky White and Casey WhiteCameras inside the jail captured what turned out to be the beginning of the final, deadly chapter of 56-year-old Vicky White's life. Dressed in a black jacket and black pants, she nonchalantly held the door open as a handcuffed and shackled Casey White emerged. The 6-foot-9 inmate in an orange prison outfit that partially covered his White supremacist tattoos shuffled to the back seat of the patrol cruiser. Vicky White whisked him away.And so began a flight from justice that spanned at least three states, grabbed national attention and left Vicky White's colleagues stunned. It ended...

                 U.S. Representative Tim Burchett (R-TN-02) introduced a new bill to strengthen the penalty for drug traffickers, specifically those who distribute fentanyl. The legislation, known as the Fentanyl Trafficker Elimination Act, establishes life sentences for individuals convicted of intentionally trafficking fentanyl or fentanyl analogues. “Smugglers aren’t deterred by the existing penalties for trafficking fentanyl into the United States,” Burchett said. “You better be ready to spend the rest of your life in prison if you willingly bring illegal fentanyl across any of our borders. No longer can we shrug off this criminal activity that is responsible for killing hundreds of thousands of Americans.” The deadly drug has grown in popularity. According to the nonprofit Families Against Fentanyl, the drug is the number one killer of individuals ages 18 to 45, outpacing COVID-19, suicide, and car accidents. Data from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection shows that more than 11,000 pounds of the synthetic opioid were seized last fiscal year—the highest number in recent years. “As an EMT and former federal drug prosecutor, I’ve witnessed firsthand the lethal effects of...
    Biden reached what seemed at the time to be an impossible target. But it's not enough. As the CDC Data Tracker shows, the United States continues to suffer from an expanding wave of COVID-19 cases attributed to the delta variant. As has been the cases for several weeks, that outbreak is concentrated in the Southeast. Which, unfortunately, includes the same areas about to be hit with the winds, rain, and storm surge of a major hurricane.  During Saturday’s morning briefing at the Pentagon, Central Command noted flight wings and troops that were now working with earthquake relief in Haiti, with the evacuation in Afghanistan, and teaming up with FEMA to prepare for the impact of Hurricane Ida. That’s a pretty full slate on anyone’s calendar. But it’s all taking place against the background of a pandemic that makes everything worse, everything more difficult, and everything more challenging. That Joe Biden guy, he picked a helluva time to be president. Everything would be a little easier if there weren’t a solid contingent of Republicans pulling for Team Virus. Not only are people...

    OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Community leaders, grieving relatives and local residents gathered in an East Oakland park Sunday, pleading for city officials to do more to stem a surge of deadly gun violence that continues to claim lives as an alarming rate. There was no pause or break in the homicide spike over the weekend as the city of Oakland recorded four additional homicides, bringing the total to 65 in 2021, nearly double the number at this time last year.

Officials are scheduled to meet again next week to discuss Moderna's EUA application.The vote, Dr. Anthony Fauci said, is a "very important step.""We want to make sure that we impress the American public that decisions that involve their health and safety are made outside of the realm of politics, outside of the realm of self-aggrandizement and are made in essence, by independent groups," Fauci told CNN Thursday night.FDA advisers recommend authorization of Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccineNext, the FDA will take that recommendation into consideration before making a decision about an EUA. Once a vaccine is authorized, Operation Warp Speed -- the federal government's initiative to develop a vaccine -- can start shipping and distributing the vaccine to states. But vaccinations...

    By Sam McNeil and Ashok Sharma | Associated Press BEIJING — China and India accused each other Wednesday of instigating deadly border clashes between their forces along the disputed Himalayan frontier, pledging to safeguard their territory but also to try to end a standoff that has dramatically raised the stakes between the nuclear-armed Asian giants. Twenty Indian troops were reportedly killed in the clashes Monday night in the Ladakh region’s Galwan Valley, while it was not clear whether China suffered any casualties. Indian security forces said neither side fired any shots, with some officials saying the soldiers were carrying anti-riot gear rather than weapons. The Indian soldiers, including a colonel, died of severe injuries suffered in sub-zero temperatures after the two sides threw rocks and traded blows, Indian officials said. It was the deadliest conflict between the sides in 45 years, and escalated a standoff in the disputed region that began in early May, when Indian officials said Chinese soldiers crossed the boundary at three different points, erecting tents and guard posts and ignoring verbal warnings to leave. That...
    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - It’s the stuff of nightmares: Breonna Taylor and her boyfriend were in bed when a trio of armed men smashed through the front door. Gunfire erupted, killing the 26-year-old black woman. The three men turned out to be plainclothes police detectives, one of whom was wounded in the chaos and violence that March night. Taylor’s death led to protests and a review of how Louisville police use “no knock” search warrants, which allow officers to enter a home without announcing their presence, often in drug cases to prevent suspects from getting rid of a stash. Taylor’s name is one of those being chanted during nationwide protests decrying police killings of black people. The unrest began after the death of George Floyd, a black man who pleaded that he couldn’t breathe as a white Minneapolis police officer pinned him to the ground with a knee.
