Members of the Shabazz High School junior varsity boys basketball team repeatedly punched and kicked their coach in a violent attack in Newark following a game Tuesday night, officials confirmed to NJ Advance Media. A video of the incident, obtained by NJ Advance Media, shows at least four players knocking the coach to the ground while punching and kicking him repeatedly outside the school. The attack lasts about 25 seconds. Newark Mayor Ras Baraka told NJ Advance Media he visited Shabazz Thursday morning to address the situation with district Superintendent Roger León and administrators, coaches and players from the school.


The full name of this institute of lower learning, which ranks consistently among the worst statewide, is the Malcolm X. Shabazz school. We're told that black kids need black teachers and administrators in order to reach their maximum potential, and here's how that plays out in this nearly 100% black school.

Was the coach black? Somehow the story didn't mention that. If the coach is white will they be charged with a hate crime? Just asking.

This is so terrible. Some years ago, in a nearby school, several students punched the football coach as he was trying to break up a student fight. The progressive school vice-principal made the two boys write a letter of apology to the coach, that was their only punishment. Unsurprisingly, after graduating from high school, both boys ended up in jail. Meanwhile, the Democrat Party (and the NAACP!) continue to side with their major donors, the teachers' unions, in opposing charter schools and school choice of any kind. Shameful.

This school is in the worst section of the city. Armed police officers are posted at football games to protect all spectators. Fortunately it's close to a major highway so visitors can get in and out quickly.

Kicking and Punching While Black KPWB should be the new normal in New Jersey! Glad they have their own school to terrorize! Suspend and arrest. Let them get some KPWB in a hard core prison and they will find out that they will be the victim of another step of violation... And they deserve every minute of it!

Zimbabwe has recorded an unprecedented number of women reporting being forced to exchange sex for employment or business favours. More than 57% of women surveyed by Transparency International Zimbabwe (TIZ) said they had been forced to offer sexual favours in exchange for jobs, medical care and even when seeking placements at schools for their children. The report, seen by the Guardian, found women in the informal sector experienced sextortion as the main form of non-monetary bribes by various officials. About 45% of women said they had received requests for sexual favours to access a service and 15% had used sex to get employment.

The biggest flop of the award show season? The award show itself. The Oscars made history for the smallest audience the award show has ever received after a night of predictable wins and polarizing acceptance speeches. About 23.6 million people watched the 92nd installment of the show, which showered Bong Joon Ho with awards including Best Director and Best Picture for his widely acclaimed social horror film “Parasite.” And while it was the most-watched show of the awards season, even the promise of a hostless show couldn’t hoist up Hollywood’s big night amid repeat wins by actors who already took home Golden Globes, SAGs and BAFTAs.

Iran was sabotaged with an unprecedented cyber attack on the eve of its failed attempt to launch a satellite into orbit, the regime has claimed. Last night, a rocket launch from Imam Khomeini Spaceport was scuppered due to low speeds which stopped it breaking into orbit. It was a humiliating blow to Tehran, which the United States believes is developing rocket technology to advance nuclear capabilities. But hours before the failure, Iran's deputy information minister Hamid Fatah had revealed the country's communications network had been hit with 'the most widespread attack in Iranian history'.(Snip) Hosseini still sought to portray the failure as a 'remarkable' achievement for its space program.

An outspoken blogger who routinely attacked Russia and Chechnya has been found dead in a French hotel with his throat slit and 100 stab wounds—and police suspect a “political motivation,” according to reports. Chechen blogger Imran Aliev, 44, was found late last month in a hotel bloodbath in Lille that reflected “extreme savagery,” sources told Agence France-Presse. His throat had also been slit, Business Insider said. Aliev had political refugee status and was living in Belgium under police protection “because of threats out of Russia and Chechnya over his opposition blogging,” a senior French police official told the outlet.

Two of the key witnesses in the Trump impeachment have been removed from their positions. Gordon Sondland is out as Ambassador to the European Union. Lt. Col Alexander Vindman has been reassigned from the National Security Council to the Pentagon. Democrats are crying foul, of course. But was it improper for Trump to take these personnel actions? Sondland’s case seems easy to me. Ambassadors serve at the pleasure of the President. Trump lost confidence in Sondland. Thus, his removal made sense. Vindman’s case is somewhat different and less easy for me. Unlike Sondland, he’s a career government employee and military man.

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire -- For a brief moment, concerned looks crossed the faces of some Elizabeth Warren supporters gathered for her election-night event in a cavernous building near the Manchester airport. There were no TVs visible to most of the crowd -- a common feature for a struggling campaign that doesn't want the audience to see bad news. There was no warm-up speaker. At 8:20 p.m., facing a fourth-place finish in New Hampshire after a third-place showing a week ago in Iowa, Warren walked onstage without fanfare. She began by acknowledging that Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg "had strong nights."

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Monday called on the nation’s 74 federal inspectors general (IGs) to protect whistleblowers from retaliation as President Donald Trump began purging Obama-era holdovers and other officials from his National Security Council (NSC). IGs are internal government watchdogs who are expected to operate independently of political leadership in government. Schumer’s call on Monday came in the wake of Trump’s decision last Friday to remove and reassign Lt. Col. Alex Vindman, a Ukraine expert on the NSC who testified in the House Democrats’ partisan impeachment probe. Last Friday, Trump also fired the NSC staffer’s twin brother — Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman —

A day after a team of World Health Organization (WHO) medical experts arrived in China to help investigate the deadly coronavirus outbreak, the health agency’s director said the virus poses “a very grave threat for the rest of the world.” Over 1,000 people in China have died after contracting the virus, which has sickened over 43,000 others globally. Just under 400 of those cases have been confirmed in countries outside of China. “With 99 percent of cases in China, this remains very much an emergency for that country, but one that holds a very grave threat for the rest of the world,” WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said
