    A gunman stormed a Fox news headquarters in Memphis and fired an AR-15 before bolting himself in the restroom of a nearby restaurant during a standoff with police. Jarrad Nathan, 26, went to the offices of FOX13 and claimed he'd been given a message from God about the murder of Tyre Nichols in Memphis in January.

    Tyre Nichols footage unmasks the left’s ugly blood libelCities around the country braced themselves for the possibility of riots last week after police bodycam footage was released in connection with the death of a black suspect, Tyre Nichols, who was pulled over for driving erratically. The footage appears to show Nichols receiving a severe beating at the hands of Memphis police after resisting arrest. As with so many of these instances, it is wise not to rush to judgment, but the available video seems rather damning for the officers involved. The injuries from the beating would later prove fatal, and...
