    More than 20 people lived on the property, which had several makeshift dwellings, a nursery and vehicles used in production, Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco said. Marijuana was processed to honey oil, a highly potent concentrate made by extracting the high-inducing chemical THC from cannabis. All seven victims and witnesses were Laotian, Bianco said. Six people were found dead on the property, and a woman who was shot there died later at a hospital. Partially eaten pizza sat in boxes in a circular dirt driveway of the dilapidated two-bedroom house where the shootings occurred. Three cars were parked outside —...

    Flight 800: Breakthrough! Posted: March 13, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 One cannot underestimate the impact of what has just transpired in James and Elizabeth Sanderses' ongoing civil suit against the federal government and seven named individuals. The case number is federal EDNY, #01-CV-5447 JS. The United States government has declined to respond to the Sanderses' summary judgment motion – "Rule 56.1 Statement." Incredibly, by so declining, U.S. Attorney Kevin Cleary has conceded that the Sanderses' 32 damning charges against his clients cannot be rebutted. In so conceding, the Justice Department tacitly acknowledges that, yes, the TWA Flight...

Some teams deployed Thursday, including 20 people each to Eisenhower Health Hospital in Riverside County and Adventist Health Lodi Memorial Hospital in San Joaquin County. Both hospitals had beds available for extra patients, but they did not have the staff to care for them. It’s highlighting a growing problem across the state as coronavirus cases increase.

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man is charged with providing material support to the Islamic State extremist group, including attempting to buy multiple weapons and scouting potential targets for an attack in the Tampa Bay area, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.

The charge carries a potential 20-year prison term. **SNIP** According to the affidavit, Al-Azhari scouted a number of targets in the Tampa Bay region, including beaches, parks and even the Tampa FBI field...

    With all the attention focused Tuesday on Republican Mike Garcia’s smashing win in the special U.S. House election in California’s 25th District (Los Angeles), it was not surprising that the national press pretty much overlooked the big Republican win for state senate in the Golden State’s 28th District (Riverside). With nearly all votes counted, conservative State Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez rolled up 56 per cent of the vote over Democrat and Riverside County Board of Education member Elizabeth Romero. The special election was called to fill out the remainder of the term of Republican State Sen. Jeff Stone, who resigned earlier...

    Chairman of the Riverside County board of supervisors Manuel Perez said Thursday he will propose to rescind all county health orders currently in place as local health experts warn it could be too soon to pull back. The four orders that would be eliminated include the closure of schools, limitations on short term lodging, restrictions on golf courses, and the requirement of face masks and social distancing. This comes just a day after county public health officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser said, "Covid-19 has not been eliminated and it’s arguable whether we could even say it's been suppressed. We expect there...

    Riverside, CA – In a heartbreaking scene, a woman was taken from the Planned Parenthood abortion facility by gurney on March 6, 2020, and loaded into an ambulance for transport. Once she was inside the ambulance, a man holding the hand of a small boy, who appeared to be the family of the injured woman, were escorted over to the ambulance by what appeared to be a Planned Parenthood security guard for instructions. The family then followed the ambulance by private vehicle as it left the Planned Parenthood parking lot. The ambulance ran without sirens. It is common for abortion...

    Video from a 215 Freeway overpass in the Riverside area appeared to show multiple California Highway Patrol officers injured as shots were fired Monday afternoon. Authorities could not immediately confirm details of the incident, but footage from a freelance photographer appears to show two officers on the ground near CHP vehicles. Multiple gunshots and sirens can be heard after a Moreno Valley Police Department officer pulls a long gun from the back of his patrol car. He and other officers are positioned behind their vehicles with guns raised. Another officer then appears to drag one wounded officer along the pavement,...

    A man accused of stealing handguns apparently shot himself after authorities chased the U-Haul truck he was driving across the Inland Empire Wednesday afternoon. The pursuit began in Santa Ana, on the eastbound 22 Freeway near where it meets Interstate 5, according to the California Highway Patrol. It had since wound its way through Orange County and the Riverside area, winding up on the 15 Freeway in San Bernardino County. While still scaling the pass, around 6 p.m., the pickup’s front left tire apparently blew out and was sending a trail of smoke and shreds of rubber behind the vehicle....

    The Associated Students of University of California – Riverside voted on Wednesday night to remove Sabra Hummus from all campus dining services, The Highlander reports. Student leaders voted 13-0-1 in favor of the resolution to kick Sabra Hummus off campus. Sabra’s joint owner, the Strauss Group, is the largest food products company in Israel and has financially supported the Israeli military, according to the New York Times. Students who supported the measure were “troubled” by funds that could potentially go to Israeli settlements by purchasing Sabra Hummus in their campus cafeteria. UC Riverside said in a statement released on Thursday:...

    A proposed student resolution to ban Sabra company products from the dining hall of a California university “is about more than hummus,” the campus rabbi leading the opposition to the boycott told The Algemeiner. “People ask what the big deal is, because even if the motion does pass the University of California Riverside Student Senate, it’s up to administrators to decide what is served at the school,” said Chabad on Campus director Rabbi Matisyahu Devlin, ahead of Wednesday’s vote. “But Jewish students are afraid; they are disturbed. If the motion passes, the message is clear: We don’t want you here,...
