    Jason Van Dyke was charged with the first-degree murder of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. Prior to that shooting, Van Dyke, on the force for 14 years, had received 18 formal complaints. A former Chicago police officer convicted of murder after shooting a Black teen 16 times is set to be released from prison next Thursday after serving only half of his six-year sentence. If released as planned for good behavior, Jason Van Dyke will have served three years and three months of his sentence in the death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, ABC-affiliated WLS reported. Activists have been protesting Van Dyke's release and calling on the Justice Department to bring federal charges against the ex-cop for violating the civil rights of McDonald, a Black teen. "This man took everything from me," McDonald's grandmother Tracy Hunter told reporters. "This man is going to walk. If tables turned, my grandson would have never seen the light of day. He shot my grandson 16 times and then reload the gun again." Van Dyke was a relief officer who worked a part-time job at Walmart before...
    The sheriff of Broward County, Fl., has fired the head of the sheriff's office deputies union amid a three-year dispute that escalated over accusations that the sheriff was not providing officers with proper protective gear against COVID-19, The Associated Press reported.  In a statement on Thursday, Broward County Sheriff Gregory Tony said he fired Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association head Jeff Bell for engaging in “corrupt practices” and “conduct unbecoming” to his position, per the AP. He also claimed Bell lied to local media outlets about him in an attempt to prevent his election to a full term in Nov. 2020. Tony additionally said that the firing was unanimously recommended by the sheriff's office's professional standards board. “The evidence shows Bell used corrupt practices to try to prevent me from being elected sheriff by providing misinformation and lies to the media to create fear and distrust among [Broward Sheriff’s Office] employees and within the community during a global pandemic,” Tony said in his statement.  “This type of behavior is egregious at any time but even more harmful and shameful during an unprecedented health crisis,” Tony continued.  Florida Gov.

    Matt Winkelmeyer, Getty SiriusXm has resurrected a channel for Neil Young’s music, just a day after his entire catalogue was yanked by Spotify after he demanded podcaster Joe Rogan be canceled. Young, 76, wrote a letter that has since been deleted on his website in which he demanded Spotify pick either he or Rogan. “I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform,” Young wrote, Rolling Stone reported. “They can have Rogan or Young. Not both.” Young had accused Rogan of being a source of life-threatening “misinformation” about Covid vaccines. Spotify refused to cancel Rogan, and so Young’s request that he essentially be self-canceled was honored. The streamer told The Washington Post in a statement: We want all the world’s music and audio content to be available to Spotify users. With that comes great responsibility in balancing both safety for listeners and freedom for creators. We have detailed content policies in place and we’ve removed over 20,000 podcast episodes related to covid-19 since the start of the pandemic. We regret Neil’s decision...

    Two of the nation's top doctors said they refuse to give their own kids a third COVID shot as vaccinated teenage boys have a low risk of hospitalization, but the likelihood of myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart, caused by the jab is 10 out of 100,000. Dr. Monica Gandhi, an infectious-disease specialist at the University of California, and Dr. Paul Offit, director of the Vaccine Education Center at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and a member of the FDA's vaccine advisory committee, told Bari Weiss in her most recent Substack that the benefits of a booster for teen males are outweighed by the possible side effects.  One of the most common serious side effects for a teen from a COVID booster jab was myocarditis, a rare heart inflammation case that occurs mostly in males, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which had recorded two such cases among a group of 20,000 while vaccinated teen boys only had a 0.3 out of 100,000 chances of being hospitalized over COVID.  The doctors claimed the CDC was premature in advising teens...
    ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — Police are investigating two separate shootings that occurred Wednesday night in St. Paul. Officers were first called to a Holiday gas station on the 600 block of Rice Street in the Capitol neighborhood at about 7:10 p.m. on a report of a shooting. The victim, a man in his 40s, had been struck in the torso, and had already been taken by a private vehicle to Regions Hospital before police arrived. He is expected to survive. An officer monitoring surveillance cameras in the area notified officers on-scene that a man walking nearby had possibly ditched a firearm in a dumpster. Police said they found the man and recovered as stolen weapon from the dumpster. The 39-year-old was arrested and is being held at the Ramsey County Jail. WCCO-TV typically does not identify those who have been arrested until they are formally charged. Witnesses told police 15-20 shots were fired at the Holiday, and video footage shows the suspect “shooting in the direction of multiple vehicles,” police said.

    Oklahoma on Thursday executed a man convicted for brutally killing two hotel workers in 2001, the first execution in the nation this year. Donald Grant, 46, was given a lethal injection at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary at 10:16 a.m., according to a statement from John O'Connor, the attorney general of Oklahoma. O'Connor said the execution was carried out "with zero complications." "Justice is now served for Brenda McElyea, Felecia Suzette Smith, and the people of Oklahoma," he said in a statement, naming Grant's victims. Oklahoma resumed executions in October following a review of its procedures to ensure lethal injections and death penalty practices were still humane. An attorney for Grant had applied for a stay based on the argument a lethal injection would administer an unconstitutional level of pain, but a judge on Wednesday denied the request, The Oklahoman reported. In the state, a defendant found guilty can be sentenced to the death penalty by a judge, and the Court of Criminal Appeals confirms the sentence, according to the Department of Corrections. A parole board considers whether to grant clemency and recommends that...
    Breyer, 83, was reported to be retiring from the high court on Wednesday before a formal announcement was made President Joe Biden is appearing alongside Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer to deliver remarks on the high court judge's retirement, the White House announced on Thursday.  It was reported just yesterday that the 83-year-old liberal is retiring from the court.  The White House confirmed those reports when it revealed shortly after 11 a.m. today that Biden will deliver a speech on Breyer's departure at 12:30 p.m. It's not clear if Breyer himself will speak.  It would be a badly needed victory for Biden if he manages to get a new left-leaning justice confirmed with a razor thin 50-50 split in the Senate. The president is already reportedly considering multiple potential replacements, all of whom fit his campaign promise to appoint a black woman to the high court. Breyer is one of three liberals on the Supreme Court, alongside Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. Former President Donald Trump was able to fill three empty slots during his four-year term, giving the...
    The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) collected data showing there were more than 5.4 million first-time gun buyers in 2021. The NSSF report, which Breitbart News has in its possession, also shows that 33.2 percent of those first-time gun buyers were women. Moreover, nearly 45 percent of retailers reported seeing an increase in the number of black Americans purchasing firearms in 2021 vs. what they saw in 2020. The 2o21 increases in first-time gun purchases by women and black Americans in 2021 is important because it comes on the heels of 2020, when a similar phenomenon occurred. On August 4, 2020, Breitbart News reported NSSF numbers showing purchases by women and black Americans were up 58 percent from 2019. People belonging to other minorities, including Hispanics, Asian Americans, and American Indians, have bought guns at a greater rate than before as well. Retailers reported that 2021 saw a nearly 37 percent increase in gun sales to Hispanics, a 27 percent increase in gun sales to Asian Americans, and an 18 percent increase in sales to American Indians.

    SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) — Average long-term U.S. mortgage rates were essentially flat this week after jumping nearly a half percent the past two weeks as lenders anticipated the Federal Reserve’s announcement of pending rate increases. The average rate on the 30-year loan ticked down to 3.55% from 3.56% last week, mortgage buyer Freddie Mac reported Thursday. It stood at 2.73% a year ago. The average rate on 15-year, fixed-rate mortgages, popular among those refinancing their homes, edged up to 2.80% from 2.79% last week. One year ago, the rate was 2.2%. Though they remain historically low, home loan rates have been rising to levels not seen since early 2020, when the coronavirus pandemic was breaking in the U.S. On Wednesday, the Fed signaled that it would begin a series of interest rate hikes in March, reversing pandemic-era policies that have fueled hiring and growth but also adding to inflation levels not seen in some 40 years. Earlier this month, the government reported that inflation spiked to 7% in December from a year earlier, the sharpest increase...

    A Seattle judge released an accused shoplifter without bail for the second time Wednesday despite his extensive criminal history, including at least 18 felony and misdemeanor convictions since 1985, according to a report.  Judge Melinda Young released John Ray Lomack Wednesday weeks after Judge Kuljinder Dhillon did the same thing after he was arrested for allegedly stealing a 70-inch TV on Dec. 22 from a downtown Seattle Target store, the Jason Rantz radio show in Seattle reported.  A King County prosecutor had argued at the time he should be held on $5,000 bail.  Lomack was banned from the store last year after employees claimed he tried to shoplift nearly two dozen times and racked up $6,000 in stolen property, according to the show.  In his most recent attempt, Lomack grabbed the $600 flat screen using a tool to cut plastic straps securing it to the other TVs, surveillance video of the incident allegedly shows, while store security who recognized him called police, the radio show reported.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Josh McDaniels felt so good about his chances of landing the Raiders’ head coaching job that he apparently began making calls to assistants around the league to build a potential staff in Las Vegas. That planning was premature. According to Vic Tafur of The Athletic, the “strong buzz” surrounding McDaniels as the next head coach of the Raiders and Dave Ziegler as the team’s next GM has been “quickly muted.” Ziegler interviewed for the Raiders’ GM job last week, and reports soon followed that the Raiders were preparing to target McDaniels in their coaching search. Ziegler just completed his ninth season with the Patriots and first as their director of player personnel. Alas, Tafur reported that something changed, due to compensation, power structure of the organization, or both. Tafur reported that the Raiders are up to eight candidates for the GM job, while several candidates — including interim coach Rich Bisaccia and Patriots inside linebackers coach Jerod Mayo — have interviewed for the head coaching position. Tafur reported that a decision from owner Mark Davis on the...
    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Puerto Rico’s Senate announced Wednesday that it was the target of a cyberattack that disabled its internet provider, phone system and official online page, the latest in a string of similar incidents in recent years. Senate President José Luis Dalmau said in a statement that there is no evidence that hackers were able to access sensitive information belonging to employees, contractors or consultants, although the incident is still under investigation. He said the incident was reported to local and federal authorities. Puerto Rico has struggled with hackers in recent years. Last year, a private company that took over operations for the transmission and distribution of electricity in the U.S. territory reported a cyberattack on its website that prevented customers from accessing the site. In 2020, an online scam attempted to steal more than $4 million from Puerto Rican government agencies, forcing authorities to freeze $2.9 million. Later that year, hackers broke into the database of Puerto Rico’s fire department and demanded $600,000 in an act of alleged extortion. Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press. All...

    California has now surpassed 8 million cumulative coronavirus cases since the beginning of the pandemic, the end result of weeks of unprecedented spread fueled by the highly infectious Omicron variant. The milestone, equivalent to roughly 1 out of every 5 residents having been infected at some point, comes amid growing signs that Omicron has finally peaked — but not before tearing through California’s communities. Since New Year’s Day, 2.5 million coronavirus cases have been reported in California. That’s fast approaching the entire statewide caseload reported all of last year: 3.1 million. And if anything, the recent sky-high numbers are likely an undercount, experts say, as many who may be infected may not get tested because they have only mild symptoms or none at all, while others may use self-administered home tests, whoseresults are not automatically reported to public health officials. Daily COVID-19 deaths have also soared in the state in recent weeks. Over the last week, an average of 139 deaths a day have been reported — exceeding the statewide peak from the summer Delta surge of 135...

    Havana, Cuba (CNN)A high-ranking official in Cuba's foreign ministry is calling for the Biden administration to restore relations with the island in light of a recent CIA report that found most "Havana syndrome" cases were unlikely to have been caused by a foreign power.The spate of mysterious health incidents that have plagued American diplomats and CIA personnel in Havana, Cuba, among other cities, can be explained by environmental causes, undiagnosed medical conditions and other factors, rather than "a sustained worldwide campaign" by a foreign adversary intended to harm US personnel, CIA officials said last week, describing interim findings from a wide-ranging study. While Cuban officials rarely agree with anything their longtime nemesis, the CIA, says, Carlos Fernández de Cossío Domínguez, a vice minister at Cuba's foreign ministry, told CNN that the report should provide enough evidence for US President Joe Biden to order the reopening of embassies and normalize relations. "The logical step by the US government with this evidence, with what they know now would be to put aside the excuse used at the time about attacks and then...

    Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer is reportedly “upset” at news of his reported retirement from the nation’s highest court, according to Fox News’ Shannon Bream, citing “multiple sources.” NBC News first reported on Wednesday that Breyer, 83, will retire after the current term. Appearing on America Reports, Bream reported: I now have multiple sources telling me that Justice Breyer was not planning to announce his retirement today. Now only he knows that and, as we wait on the court, the longer we wait, the more that it seems like that is a possibility. I’m told that he is upset that the way this is being handled was not the timeline that he had planned. We’ve reached back to him and to the court to try to get some clarification on that and maybe in his statement we’ll learn more. But we know that there’s been pressure on him for months, as there was on Justice [Ruth Bader] Ginsburg to step down, while the Democrats have control of the Senate, narrow though it is. But listen, I think it makes sense that he was going to probably retire this term anyway,...

    A 62-year-old Fairfield County man has admitted to illegally distributing prescription medication. David Ciancimino, of Trumbull, pleaded guilty on Monday, Jan. 24, to one count of distribution of a controlled substance without a legitimate medical purpose and outside the scope of professional practice, according to Leonard Boyle, the United States attorney for the District of Connecticut.

    Russian leader Vladimir Putin spent much of this month calling the leaders of allied communist nations in Latin America to discuss “boosting strategic cooperation in all fields,” giving Moscow enhanced leverage in the Western Hemisphere as tensions with Washington mount. American corporate media outlets reported a frenzy over potential Russian colonization in Washington after President Joe Biden told reporters last week that he believed Putin would formally invade Ukraine – the Russian government colonized part of Ukraine in 2014 and is a looming presence in the ongoing Donbas war in the nation’s east. Biden suggested that America would not intervene in the event of a “minor incursion,” triggering panic that Biden’s remarks would embolden Putin to colonize the entire country. Ukrainian officials, including President Volodymyr Zelensky, have denied having any evidence of an imminent further Russian invasion, but their statements have largely evaded coverage in the United States. The Russian government denies any involvement in the Donbas war and has argued that the true threat to European stability is the potential for Ukraine to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization...
