Colorado school district will allow teachers to carry guns




DENVER — A rural Colorado school district decided Wednesday night to allow its teachers and other school staff to carry guns on campus to protect students.

The Hanover School District 28 board voted 3-2 to allow school employees to volunteer to be armed on the job after undergoing training.

The district’s two schools serve about 270 students about 30 miles southeast of Colorado Springs, and it takes law enforcement an average of 20 minutes to get there. The district currently shares an armed school resource officer with four other school districts.

Board member Michael Lawson backed the idea not only as way to protect students from a mass shooting but also as protection against possible violence connected with nearby marijuana grows, which he believes are connected with foreign cartels, the Gazette of Colorado Springs reported.

Suspect Confessed to Police That He Began Shooting Students ‘in the Hallways’








PARKLAND, Fla. — The suspect in one of the deadliest school shootings in modern American history confessed to the police that he “began shooting students that he saw in the hallways and on school grounds,” according to a police arrest report released Thursday.

The suspect, Nikolas Cruz, 19, carried a black duffel bag and backpack, where he hid loaded magazines, the report said. He arrived at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland in an Uber at 2:19 p.m. on Wednesday and pulled out a semiautomatic AR-15 rifle, according to details described by the authorities at a news conference on Thursday.

Mr. Cruz also shot people inside five classrooms on the first and second floors of the freshman building. He eventually discarded the rifle, a vest and ammunition in a stairwell, blended in with fleeing students and got away, the authorities said.

After leaving the school, Mr. Cruz walked to a Walmart, and bought a drink at a Subway. He also stopped at a McDonald’s. He was arrested by the police without incident as he walked down a residential street at 3:41 p.m.

Let them eat wax: Puerto Rico first lady sorry for 'misinterpreted' candle gift

Beatriz Rosselló, second left, walks with her husband, Governor Ricardo Rosselló, and Melania and Donald Trump to survey hurricane damage in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, last October.




The wife of Puerto Rico’s governor apologized on Wednesday for sending candles to people on an island where more than 400,000 power customers remain in the dark five months after Hurricane Maria.



Beatriz Rosselló said she just wanted to send a message of unity and hope.

“I’m very sorry that the gift was misinterpreted,” she said.

The candles were accompanied by a wooden Christmas ornament made by inmates who created them from pieces of a century-old tree that the category 4 storm toppled at the governor’s mansion on 20 September. The gift was accompanied by a message saying: “May this piece represent the transformation and resilience of the people of Puerto Rico.”



Mayor Rafael Surillo of Yabucoa told the Associated Press that he received one of the candles last week and felt it was in poor taste. The southern coastal town of 38,000 people that he represents was the first one hit by Hurricane Maria, and only about 12% of people there have power.

FEMA Contract Called for 30 Million Meals for Puerto Ricans. 50,000 Were Delivered.



Tiffany Brown, who is listed as the only employee of Tribute Contracting LLC




The mission for the Federal Emergency Management Agency was clear: Hurricane Maria had torn through Puerto Rico, and hungry people needed food. Thirty million meals needed to be delivered as soon as possible.



For this huge task, FEMA tapped Tiffany Brown, an Atlanta entrepreneur with no experience in large-scale disaster relief and at least five canceled government contracts in her past. FEMA awarded her $156 million for the job, and Ms. Brown, who is the sole owner and employee of her company, Tribute Contracting LLC, set out to find some help.

Ms. Brown, who is adept at navigating the federal contracting system, hired a wedding caterer in Atlanta with a staff of 11 to freeze-dry wild mushrooms and rice, chicken and rice, and vegetable soup. She found a nonprofit in Texas that had shipped food aid overseas and domestically, including to a Houston food bank after Hurricane Harvey.



By the time 18.5 million meals were due, Tribute had delivered only 50,000. And FEMA inspectors discovered a problem: The food had been packaged separately from the pouches used to heat them. FEMA’s solicitation required “self-heating meals.”

Israel targets Syrian military base










Israel launched surface-to-surface missiles at a military installation outside the Syrian capital Damascus overnight, Syrian state TV reports.

The attack caused damage but two missiles were intercepted, it added.
The Israeli military has not confirmed it carried out the strike.

UK-based monitoring group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights earlier reported explosions near Damascus, which it said were caused by a suspected Israeli missile attack.
The extent of the damage is not yet clear although the TV report spoke of "material losses" at the base.

Head of the Syrian Observatory, Rami Abdel Rahman, told the AFP news agency the strike destroyed an arms depot - but his group did not know who it belonged to.

Video contradicts accounts of Chicago cops in a 2014 fatal shooting of teen






Two Chicago police officers changed their accounts of a controversial fatal police shooting after viewing police surveillance video that showed they were not as close to the shooting as they had said, court records show.

The altered accounts raise doubts about the official narrative of the shooting of 19-year-old Roshad McIntosh, who police said pointed a gun at an officer before he was shot.

The questions come after Chicago’s police oversight agency took the unusual step this summer of re-opening its investigation into the 2014 shooting on the West Side.
McIntosh was shot on the back porch of a brick two-flat in the 2800 block of West Polk Street after he fled on foot as numerous officers pulled up to investigate a tip about guns.

Kate Steinle: Trump outrage over murder case acquittal




US President Donald Trump has condemned the acquittal of an illegal immigrant who shot dead a woman in San Francisco in 2015, claiming it was an accident.

The killing of Kate Steinle by Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, a Mexican national deported from the US five times, sparked a row over illegal immigration.

While the jury cleared him of murder and manslaughter, he was convicted of illegally possessing a firearm.
President Trump described the verdict as "disgraceful".
"No wonder the people of our country are so angry with illegal immigration," he said in a pre-dawn tweet on Friday.

"His exoneration is a complete travesty of justice. BUILD THE WALL!"
President Trump also decried the fact that Garcia Zarate's immigration status was deemed irrelevant by the California judge, and was not discussed in court.

Garcia Zarate did not deny shooting Ms Steinle, but said it was not deliberate.
He faces a potential sentence of between 16 months and three years after being found guilty on the charge of being a convicted criminal in possession of a handgun.
