    The head of the Texas Department of Public Safety said Tuesday that Uvalde police could have stopped the mass shooting at Robb Elementary within three minutes, calling their response an "abject failure." Testifying before a special Texas Senate committee hearing, Col. Steve McCraw, director of the Texas Department of Public Safety, told lawmakers that "There is compelling evidence that the law enforcement response to the attack at Robb Elementary was an abject failure and antithetical to everything we’ve learned over the last two decades since the Columbine massacre." "The officers had weapons, while the children had none. The officers had...

    A North Texas teenager disappeared after going to the bathroom at a Dallas Mavericks game. A week later, her parents found her on nude advertisements for sex trafficking online in Oklahoma City. The harrowing incident is the basis for a lawsuit by the family against numerous organizations they said could have stopped the crime but didn't. The 15-year-old went to the game with her father on April 8 at the American Airlines Center. She went missing after leaving to go the bathroom right before halftime, and surveillance video captured her leaving with a man. The parents of the teenager said...

Jones is seen dousing his bare torso and hair with flammable hand sanitizer from a large pump bottle that was on a table. Within seconds, three officers advance towards him. One of them draws...

All he has asked for his birthday is a COVID-19 vaccine. You see, his father died of COVID-19 on May 11, 2020, and the pandemic has ruled all of our lives since March of...

    Prosecutors say rioters committed roughly 1,000 assaults on federal officers during the Jan. 6 insurrection on the U.S. Capitol. In a court filing Wednesday, federal prosecutors in Washington, D.C. said they have already uploaded over 2,900 police bodycam videos from Jan. 6 to its evidence database, totaling over 2,300 hours — or nearly 100 days. “Based on a review of the body-worn-camera footage conducted by our Office, the footage displays approximately 1,000 events that may be characterized as assaults on federal officers,” wrote Emily Miller, an assistant U.S. attorney and the Capitol Breach Discovery Coordinator. Over 570 people have been...

You’re going to spend the rest of your life learning about each other, and every now and then things blow up.” Things blew up big-time for Dwayne Correia last Aug. 11. It was such a bad day for this week’s disgraced state cop that the MSP wrote a 23-page report on his sordid misadventures in Rhode Island (where he’d gotten married, on Goat Island, almost exactly one year earlier). Even though...
