    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (CBS12) — **Warning-story contains graphic video which may be uncomfortable to some viewers.** The State Attorney for the Fourth Judicial Court in northeast Florida justified the fatal shooting of a woman who stabbed a police officer in Jacksonville.

    Thank you, Cheri. Good morning everyone and thank you all for coming today.I am here to discuss, this morning, a serious challenge facing law enforcement throughout the country and the DEA’s operation that has been mounted to meet that challenge, and to discuss some of the preliminary results. It relates to drug trafficking, methamphetamine, and the associated violent crime.I’ve always said that the first duty of government is to protect the public safety and that is obviously the department’s top priority. State and local law enforcement has the primary responsibility — they’re really at the front line of protecting...
  • Donald Trump will order FBI and DEA surge in Chicago and Albuquerque to tackle violence as mayor Lori Lightfoot says 'under NO circumstances' will she allow Portland-style crackdown

    Donald Trump is set to escalate his federal intervention in cities Wednesday by expanding 'Operation Legend,' deploying FBI and other agents to Chicago and Albuquerque to quell what he claims is out of control violence. The move was to be announced Wednesday afternoon by Trump at the White House - putting him once again at odds with Democratic mayors, especially Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot. They have opposed deploying federal forces to tackle protests. But Operation Legend, which was started in Kansas City, MO, involves surging Department of Justice, not Department of Homeland Security, agents to tackle crime rather then protests.

    I have to preface this column with a disclaimer: I don’t know if this actually came from a cop or not. I’ve seen this shared on Facebook a few times and while I can’t verify it was really written by a police officer, the sentiment is accurate, so it’s worth sharing some of it here with that caveat. It starts, “It's not the police who need to be retrained, it's the public. We have grown into a mouthy, cell phone-wielding, vulgar, uncivil society with no personal responsibility and the attitude of 'it's the other person's fault,' 'you owe me.' A...

    We think of slavery as a practice of the past, an image from Roman colonies or 18th-century American plantations, but the practice of enslaving human beings as property still exists. There are 29.8 million people living as slaves right now, according to a comprehensive new report issued by the Australia-based Walk Free Foundation...

    After facing intense backlash earlier this month for stating that he goes to the gynecologist with his teenage daughter each year to “check her hymen,” rapper T.I. defended himself this week during an appearance on the Facebook Watch show “Red Table Talk.” T.I. told host Jada Pinkett Smith that he thinks a “false narrative” about his comments has been “sensationalized” — but he also defended his choice to “protect” his daughter from “the little slimy, grimy, chubby-fingered little boys who want to just come and defile and destroy the sanctity that I have.” The rapper made the initial comments during...

    Connor Betts’ life appeared to be improving in recent months. His drunken driving troubles were behind him. He’d passed the basic math classes that stymied his earlier college attempts. He went to counseling and registered for classes for the upcoming fall semester at Sinclair. But in April, the Oregon District gunman started taking steps toward what would end on Aug. 4 with the death of nine other people, including his sister, as well as himself. He bought a pistol. To keep his parents in the dark, federal authorities allege he enlisted an unwitting friend to acquire body armor, the upper...

    Prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house, with prosecutors calling him a violent sexual predator who preys on men struggling with addiction and homelessness. Buck was charged with one count each of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting a 37-year-old man, who overdosed but survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11. That latest incident comes after two men were found dead in his Laurel Avenue apartment in Hollywood. In both...

    Democrats advanced a new measure this week to encourage states to pass “red flag” laws. These so-called extreme risk protection orders authorize removing guns and ammunition from individuals deemed as dangerous by some anonymous, unaccountable person, but it would not include the ready-made lists of gang members. Republicans tried to add an amendment including known gang members, but the Democrats will not permit the inclusion of gang databases. It’s odd since gangs are the ones causing most of the so-called gun violence. They would agree to include the names of white supremacists, but not other terror groups.
