The father of Atatiana Jefferson — the black woman killed by a white Fort Worth officer last week — has gotten a temporary restraining order to put a stop to her funeral and burial. Dallas County probate court Judge Brenda Hull Thompson signed the order Friday afternoon. It grants Marquis Jefferson “full authority to make arrangements for the funeral and burial.” The order also sets a hearing Monday morning to determine whether the restraining order should be continued. Atatiana Jefferson’s funeral, which is open to the public, was scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday at The Potter’s House, 6777 W. Kiest Blvd. in Dallas. A private wake

The Potter's House. Is that the church of the modalist Pope TD Jakes?

Why? It is not clear why the funeral should be stopped. Is there some money to be made from stopping this funeral? The officers were extremely poorly trained, or didn't follow their training, by not contacting the home owner, and sneaking around outside. Frankly, this home owner could be me, although I am smart enough to kill the interior lights in this situation before doing anything like grabbing a gun. I normally start out on the side of the police, but when they do something so completely, totally out of line, and violent like this, this needs to be severely punished. I really hope that every other officer understands that failing to make any attempt at all to talk to the home owner especially in a non-emergency call, and then killing someone inside a home is absolutely wrong, and literally is murder.

Suspicions around this area are that the father stepped into a spotlight so he's in line for benefits from the lawsuit revenue that is sure to come. It was a terrible thing to happen, the young woman's death, and the cop will have to face the consequences of not following procedures.

On June 16, 1975, when I was 12 years old, my mother, Brenda, married Charles “Chuckie” O’Brien, who a few weeks later would become a leading suspect in the notorious disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa, the former president of the Teamsters union. Chuckie had known Hoffa since he was a boy, loved him like a father, and was his closest aide in the 1950s and ’60s, when Hoffa was the nation’s best-known and most feared labor leader. Soon after Hoffa went missing, on July 30, 1975, the FBI zeroed in on Chuckie. Chuckie had been by Hoffa’s side during Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy’s long pursuit of Hoffa

When it comes to winning games and solving puzzles, sometimes monkeys play smarter than humans. Monkeys may show off their physical flexibility as they clamber over tangled tree branches, but the animals also display impressive "cognitive flexibility," or the ability to quickly change how they think about, and work to solve, a problem. Whereas monkeys can think on their feet, humans often become set in their ways and cling to inefficient strategies for problem solving, according to new research. "We are a unique species and have various ways in which we are exceptionally different from every other creature on the planet. But we're also sometimes really dumb," study co-author Julia Watzek,

The cowhands who watch over the 1,500 head of South Dakota’s Custer State Park buffalo herd say they won’t approach mature bulls until their harem females are in heat. Apparently when you weigh two-and-a-half tons, carry a head like a viking anvil and boast a top speed of 30 mph, no one rounds you up until you damn well feel like it. That kind of zero-sum, survival-of-the-fittest mentality built the state of South Dakota, and it still dominates the annual autumn roundup of the state’s largest buffalo herd, a prime tourist attraction.

Senator Elizabeth Warren’s refusal to answer repeated questions at last night’s debate about how she would fund Medicare for all underscores the challenge she faces finding a politically acceptable means to meet the idea’s huge price tag—a challenge that only intensified today with the release of an eye-popping new study. The Urban Institute, a center-left think tank highly respected among Democrats, is projecting that a plan similar to what Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders are pushing would require $34 trillion in additional federal spending over its first decade in operation. That’s more than the federal government’s total cost over the coming decade for Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid combined,

On Sunday, Dallas Cowboys fans witnessed the latest ignominy of the Jason Garrett era. The team suffered its third consecutive loss, forcing a reckoning in its identity from “probable playoff team and Super Bowl hopeful” to “just one game better than the hapless New York Giants.” And while the previous two losses happened against good teams, Sunday’s defeat at the hands of the previously winless New York Jets means that Dallas has no excuses left. Football is a team sport, and there’s plenty of blame to go around in this loss—but if you’re looking for a key target, head coach Jason Garrett is your guy. Here’s a video of Cowboys defenders

Beto O’Rourke, I do believe, is a psychopath. Let me explain. First, we must admit the evident. O’Rourke, spectacularly privileged by every measure, boasts an unspectacular political career. City councilor, sometime congressman, he offers little of anything notable, at least by way of accomplishment. Except, of course, for himself; jumping earnestly from one platform to another, he is, at the very least, a virtuoso opportunist, a character trait he likely imbibed in utero. Failed, though, as a candidate for the Senate (we Texans might be right-wingers, but we are not dumb), he will soon undoubtedly be a double political failure. Polling just under 2%,

Each fall, the major British parties hold their annual conferences. This year, Labour Party apparatchiks descended on Brighton, while the Tories went north, to Manchester. These jamborees come with predictable features: an aging core of loyal members, slogan tee shirts and badges, and, at the end, a speech from the party leader—in the case of the Tories, Prime Minister Boris Johnson—or from the man who wants his job—in the case of Labour, Jeremy Corbyn. Beyond the outward signs of business as usual, this year’s conference season confirmed just how far British politics has veered from normal.

It comes just hours after Gabbard, 38, called Clinton 'the queen of warmongers [and the] embodiment of corruption' after Clinton suggested Gabbard was being groomed by Russians to be a third-party spoiler in the 2020 election. 'The reason why she's doing this is because ultimately she knows she can't control me,' Gabbard, who was on the campaign trail in Iowa, told Carlson.

No, this is not from the Babylon Bee. It actually comes from the Oprah Winfrey Network, and a segment featuring Professor Britney Cooper, who sports a PhD from Emory University and who currently is an associate professor in the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University. With that sort of background, perhaps it isn’t surprising to eternalize blame for obesity on racism and seem to indict President Trump for it. (snip) While this is all funny, it is also tragic. Obesity is unhealthy and unhappy to endure. Blaming others doesn’t ever lead to change in a positive direction.

The investigation, which covered the 33,000 emails Clinton provided for review, found 91 "valid violations" attributable to 38 individuals, some of whom may face disciplinary action. Another 497 violations could not be tied to any specific person. A nine-page unclassified report was sent to Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, who is leading the congressional oversight of the security review, in a letter from Assistant Secretary of State for Legislative Affairs Mary Elizabeth Taylor dated Oct. 16.
