A second man charged in connection with a mass shooting that left 13 people injured last month at a house party in Englewood on the South Side was ordered held without bail. Keilon Jones, 25, is charged with one felony count each of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated battery with a firearm for the Dec. 22 shooting in the 5700 block of South May Street, according to Chicago police.(Snip) Police have said the shooting started amid a dispute inside the house at a party honoring the memory of Lonell Irvin, a 22-year-old man shot dead in April during an attempted carjacking in the Loop.

Comments:

Them's some mighty tan white supremacists. Meanwhile, the peaceful revelers were honoring a carjacker whose life of crime was curtailed by the would-be victim with a carry permit.

Every single shooter perp in that mass shooting should have done it in Cuomo's NY with his 100% demonrat run legislature. They would have all been released with no bail needed and thus free as birds to prey on others again.

More homeless New Yorkers died last year than in any other in the past decade—despite promises by Mayor Bill de Blasio to make their lives better. Homeless deaths from July 2018 through June 2019 totaled 404—a staggering 39% increase from the previous fiscal year and the highest number since 2006, when the city began recording the deaths. Sixty percent died in a hospital. The rest died outdoors or in other places that the city didn’t specify in its annual report, which is mandated by law. The top five causes of the deaths: drugs, heart disease, alcoholism, unspecified accidents and cancer.

Auburn, Wash—Police in Auburn released surveillance video of a suspect they believe has been living in the rafters of a grocery store for weeks, emerging only to steal from the store, then returning to a hiding place somewhere above the store. Auburn Police Commander Mike Hirman said video shows a person dressed in black, wearing a face mask, and walking the aisles of the Haggen Northwest Fresh Market, while carrying a black bag filled with thousands of dollars in cigarettes stolen from the store. Hirman said the suspect first came to their attention on Christmas Day when police were called about what they thought

President Donald Trump made a stark appeal to black Americans during the 2016 election when he asked, “What have you got to lose?” Three years later, black Americans have rendered their verdict on his presidency with a deeply pessimistic assessment of their place in the United States under a leader seen by an overwhelming majority as racist. The findings come from a Washington Post-Ipsos poll of African Americans nationwide, which reveals fears about whether their children will have a fair shot to succeed and a belief that white Americans don’t fully appreciate the discrimination that black people experience.

The Brooklyn pimp who was convicted last year of dismembering his prostitute girlfriend and keeping her head in his freezer was sentenced to four to eight years in prison on Friday after hearing a statement from the victim’s family in which they branded him an “evil monster.” Somorie Moses, 43, was convicted in November of negligent homicide for the Jan. 12, 2017 killing of 32-year-old Leondra Foster and concealing her dismembered corpse—disposing of portions in a Bronx trash dump and keeping others in his freezer.

Johannesburg—The United Nations World Food Programme said on Thursday that a record 45 million people in the 16-nation Southern African Development Community faced growing hunger following repeated drought, widespread flooding and economic disarray. Southern Africa is in the grips of a severe drought, as climate change wreaks havoc in impoverished countries already struggling to cope with extreme natural disasters, such as Cyclone Idai which devastated Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi in 2019. Zimbabwe, once the breadbasket of southern Africa, is experiencing its worst economic crisis in a decade, marked by soaring inflation and shortages of food, fuel, medicines and electricity.

A Minnesota woman recognised as a "teacher of the year" knelt during the US national anthem at a college football championship game attended by Donald Trump in a protest inspired by black athletes that is known to infuriate him.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's decision to spend more time in North America could be considered unlawful, a constitutional expert has warned. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's plan to live in Canada has captivated the nation as they negotiate an abdication deal with the Queen on money, titles and establishing their international commercial brand.

A Michigan senator is accused of humiliating a female journalist in the state’s chambers by telling her a group of high school boys “could have a lot of fun” with her, according to the reporter. Michigan Advance reporter Allison Donahue claimed the comments by Sen. Peter Lucido, the state’s senate majority whip, left her “objectified and humiliated” as she tried to interview him. Instead of answering the 22-year-old’s questions, the politician pointed to a group of about 30 boys visiting from his all-boys alma mater, De La Salle Collegiate, Donahue wrote in a first-person exposé. “You should hang around!

Travelers on the Mexico City subway system often blame authorities for broken-down escalators at subway stops, but Metro officials have another explanation: vast amounts of pee. Somehow, urine is penetrating and corroding the drive wheels and mechanisms of the escalators that carry riders up from underground stations. In a list published on Tuesday, the Metro system listed “corrosion due to urine” as one of the top five causes of escalator breakdowns. Fermín Ramírez, the system’s assistant manager for rails and facilities, said riders appear to be urinating on escalators at off-peak hours and lightly used stations, “even though it seems hard to believe”.

A federal judge ordered a halt Wednesday to the Trump administration’s plan to give states and localities a veto over refugees being sent into their territory, saying the law doesn’t allow them a say. The ruling is a major victory for immigrant rights groups, who had feared some communities would shut their doors thanks to President Trump’s executive order last year establishing the veto policy. Judge Peter J. Messitte, an appointee of President Clinton to the U.S. District Court in Maryland, issued an injunction stopping the policy just days before it was to kick in. He said decades of refugee law have

If the Trump era has taught us anything, it's that large numbers of white people in the United States are motivated at least in part by racism in the voting booth. Donald Trump ran an openly racist campaign for president, calling Mexicans rapists and criminals, regularly retweeting white supremacists and at least initially balking at repudiating former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Trump made it clear in his campaign that "Make America Great Again" meant that America was greater when white people's power was more sweeping and more secure. White voters approved of that message by a whopping 58 percent to 37 percent.

Hillary Clinton opened up about her marital struggles with Bill Clinton in an upcoming documentary about the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee. “I didn’t want anything to do with him,” Clinton said, appearing to tear up, in a trailer of the four-part series which premieres in March on Hulu. The Clintons’ marriage faced a difficult period when Bill had an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky during his presidency. He initially denied the affair under oath, which led to his impeachment in December 1998. Months earlier, Chelsea Clinton, who was 18 years old around the time the Lewinsky scandal played out, put herself between her parents

Prince Harry and Meghan will no longer use their HRH titles and will not receive public funds for royal duties, Buckingham Palace has announced. The couple will also no longer formally represent The Queen. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said they intend to repay £2.4m of taxpayer money for the refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage, which will remain their UK family home. The new arrangement comes into effect in spring this year, the palace said. The statement comes after senior royals held talks on Monday about the future role for the couple, who this month announced they wanted to "step back" as senior royals.

Much like the current crop of Democratic candidates, the various activists and affiliates that once participated in the demonstration have recently begun turning on one another, as any coalition of radical leftists tends to do.

The Duke of Sussex was at a formal private dinner at the Ivy, in Chelsea, for vulnerable children's charity Sentebale, which founded in 2006, when he made the comments.
