    A top Florida police official shot himself in the head on the side of a highway Sunday after an argument with his wife and remains in critical condition, according to reports. Tampa cops responded earlier in the day to a “disturbance” at a local hotel involving Miami-Dade Police Director Alfredo Ramirez, who was in town for a sheriffs’ association conference, and his wife. After responding officers left the scene of the initial call, Miami-Dade’s top cop shot himself in the head on Interstate 75. The Florida Highway Patrol addressed the incident in a statement.

  • State Police can't help NOPD with I-10 shooter (New Orleans Serial Sniper)

    "In April, the New Orleans Police Department’s Director of Communications asked me to stop referring to Interstate 10 shooters as serial snipers, and I have complied." "Two weeks ago, on a Tuesday morning, a commuter from New Orleans East pulled his work van onto I-10 headed westbound. Between the exits of Read and Crowder boulevards, two pickup trucks without license plates blocked the lanes in front of him and decelerated. One of the two eased into the left lane and slowed more, dropping beside the work van, while his confederate in the truck directly ahead of the commuter reduced speed...
  • Is DeSantis going to be the one who finally breaks Twitter? Florida's Gov. has come up with a great plan to bring Twitter to heel but the National Security Apparatus may weigh in

    With the Twitter board having created a poison pill strategy to block Elon Musk from buying the entire company, it appeared that Musk might end up being stymied. However, Florida’s governor Ron DeSantis may be riding to the effort with a shareholder’s suit accusing the board of directors of breaching its fiduciary duty. However, even if the board is forced to bow down, it’s possible that America’s national security apparatus may step in to block the sale. To catch you up on things, Twitter has become Ground Zero for the left’s control of the flow of information. Democrats in politics...

    A report that the Biden administration is discussing the possibility of vaccine passports for interstate travel drew outrage on Friday across social media. The Associated Press, noting President Biden has become more "aggressive" in his push for COVID-19 mandates, reported "more severe measures — such as mandating vaccines for interstate travel or changing how the federal government reimburses treatment for those who are unvaccinated and become ill with COVID-19 — have been discussed" by the White House. But the administration is "worried that they would be too polarizing at this time." An administration official told the AP "the interstate travel...

  • Biden: ‘Highways Have Been Built to Enforce Racial Segregation’ Using ‘Federal Dollars’

    Federal funds are being used to build segregationist highways, and “federal policy” is to blame, former Vice President Joe Biden says on his presidential campaign website. On a page titled “Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations,” Biden outlines strategies he shares with Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) for “pursuing environmental justice.” Biden argues that “impacts of climate change are not evenly distributed in our society” – and that the inequity is by design, because highways are being built “to enforce racial segregation.”

    If the buyer and seller both follow all applicable laws, the federal government allows the interstate purchase of a home. Or a chain saw. Or a sword. Or a computer. Or even a long gun, like a rifle or shotgun. But not a handgun. And that prohibition is being targeted in a new petition to the high court for the justices to hear the arguments in the Mance v. Whitaker case from the 5th Circuit, and reverse it. It involves a Texas firearms retailer and two would-be customers who reside in Washington, D.C. A federal district court earlier ruled that...

    The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ^ | March 30, 2018 | Debra Erdley
    Elizabeth Zemba of Mt. Pleasant, a daily Pennsylvania Turnpike traveler, turned to art and creativity to express frustration with the highway's ever-rising tolls. She created an Internet meme. A photo of a turnpike tollbooth is overlaid with the logo: "Pennsylvania Turnpike re-inventing highway robbery since 2009." For many, annual turnpike toll increases simply have become too much to bear. Two weeks ago, a coalition of truckers and motorists advocates filed a class action suit against the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, PennDOT and Gov. Tom Wolf, seeking to recoup "excessive fees" that went to underwrite projects other than the operation of the...

    Although the Trump administration and Congress have struggled to fully repeal Obamacare, while putting a good dent in the law by repealing the individual mandate through tax reform, officials are finding new ways to lower costs and expand coverage to consumers. On Thursday, the Department of Labor announced a new rule proposal that opens the door to allowing insurance companies to sell plans and coverage across state lines. From Insurance News Net:  In another move toward dismantling the Affordable Care Act, the Department of Labor announced a proposed rule to expand the offering of small business health plans, also known as...
