    A former FBI informant stabbed Derek Chauvin, the ex-police officer who was convicted for murdering George Floyd, according to court documents filed on Dec. 1. John Turscak, 52, stabbed Mr. Chauvin 22 times with an "improvised knife" in federal prison in Arizona, according to the documents. Mr. Turscak was subdued by responding corrections officers.

Chauvin survived the attack and was said to be in a stable condition. He is serving multiple sentences for Floyd's death, which triggered nationwide protests and rioting. Turscak, a former member of a Mexican Mafia gang, allegedly targeted Chauvin in the prison's law library at lunchtime. He later said that he...

    A newly-opened boutique store in Seattle has suffered two 'crash-and-grab' burglaries within four days as the worrying trend spreads across the state. Rush Hour, which specializes in buying, selling, and trading sneakers, streetwear, and vintage items, was smashed into just before 5am on November 17 using a stolen Chevrolet Silverado. The thieves then ran inside to steal their merchandise but the owners of the store were optimistic this would not deter them and hoped to recoup some their losses on Black Friday. But they were again targeted by thieves on November 20 who used a stolen Kia Sedona to crash...

    Retailers across New York state say there’s no end in sight to the rising epidemic of organized shoplifting rings — and warn it could lead to more store closures, increased costs for consumers and threats of violence against store employees. Store owners said they lost $4.4 billion last year as a result of retail theft — which they say adds to the urgency for Gov. Kathy Hochul to crack down. However, Hochul vetoed a bipartisan bill last week — to the chagrin of store owners — that would have created a task force to combat organized theft. ... The Retail...

    Derek Chauvin, who was convicted of murder in the death of George Floyd in a highly contested decision, was knifed on Friday and almost died. The prison officials didn’t even bother to call his mother, Carolyn Pawlenty. Alpha News reported that she found out through media reports. “How the hell do these news agencies know, and his own mother doesn’t even know? And that [prison] has an emergency contact number [for me],” Pawlenty said, adding that she is “worried and scared” about her son’s condition. “I can’t even think what to say. I haven’t been to bed and made a...

    The Minneapolis cop convicted of murdering George Floyd in 2020 has been thoroughly scrubbed of his personhood, let alone his rights. Nobody bothered to tell his family or his lawyer that another inmate had attacked him Saturday. Despite being the most notorious ex-cop in America, he wasn’t protected from violent prisoners. The fact he was even in the ill-run federal prison in Tucson, Ariz., 1,638 miles from his family, speaks volumes. His lawyers argued that he had been denied a fair trial because Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill refused to move to a venue outside Minneapolis despite massive pretrial publicity...

    A deranged trans shooter killed six in a horrific massacre at a Nashville Christian school back in April. The deceased shooter, Audrey “Aiden” Hale, left behind a manifesto. Nashville Police refused to share it with the public. We learned this week why. In screenshots obtained by Steven Crowder, Hale vented her murderous rage towards whites, whom she referred to as privileged “crackers.” Despite being white herself, the shooter wanted to kill those like her. This rhetoric isn’t found in the dark corners of 4chan. Anti-white hate is part of school curricula throughout the country. It’s broadcast by television channels and...

    comment on their decision to leave in place state court rulings affirming Chauvin’s conviction and 22 1/2-year sentence, San Diego Union-Tribune reported. In October, attorneys representing Chauvin appealed to the Supreme Court to review his case. This appeal was based on the refusal of a Minnesota trial court to change the venue of the trial and sequester the jury. Chauvin argued that holding the trial in Minneapolis violated his right to a fair trial. He argued this was due to extensive pretrial media coverage and the potential for violent protests and riots if he were found not guilty.
