    A Baltimore police officer shot and killed a man who was wielding a knife in West Baltimore on Sunday, according to Baltimore Police Department Commissioner Michael Harrison.

As an activist, he spray-painted that message across the face of Baltimore—from block to block and from neighborhood to neighborhood. His father, Carlton Moorehead, confirmed to WJZ that his son had been killed by an officer while in the neighborhood of Sandtown-Winchester. Moorehead had been holding the knife while assaulting a female on the ground near the intersection of North...

    Iranian General Qassem Soleimani arrived at the Damascus airport in a vehicle with dark-tinted glass. Four soldiers from Iran’s Revolutionary Guards rode with him. They parked near a staircase leading to a Cham Wings Airbus A320, destined for Baghdad. Neither Soleimani nor the soldiers were registered on the passenger manifesto, according to a Cham Wings airline employee who described the scene of their departure from the Syrian capital to Reuters. Soleimani avoided using his private plane because of rising concerns about his own security, said an Iraqi security source with knowledge of Soleimani’s security arrangements. The passenger flight would be...

    It’s the Fourth of July weekend, so it’s fitting to hear a story about an eagle rescued by a veteran. Earlier this week, Jason Galvin and his neighbors noticed an eagle dangling from a tree near Rush City. Its leg was caught in a piece of rope that was wrapped around a branch, about 70 feet off the ground. “I thought it was dead at the time,” Jason said. “I took a closer look with binoculars and saw that the head was moving, and I knew it was very much alive.” Jason and his wife Jackie called the police, the...

    Iran's foreign ministry claimed that warplanes from the Saudi Arabia-led coalition involved in Yemen's ongoing war struck and damaged its embassy in Sanaa, yet another incident that could inflame tensions between Tehran and Riyadh. Iran condemned the strike, according to foreign ministry spokesman Hussein Jaberi Ansari. But it was not immediately clear if the Iranian embassy was targeted or if it got struck unintentionally amid the broader conflict within Yemen. That war pits the Shiite Muslim rebel Houthis supported by Iran against forces loyal to President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi, which are being backed militarily and otherwise by the overwhelmingly...

    Ever since his CPAC Keynote Address in 2010, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) has been one of the gold standards of modern American political conservatism. He has also been widely hailed as a political model for conservative African American politicians. And now, following recent revelations surrounding the highly suspicious shooting of Trayvon Martin, Rep. West has joined a growing bipartisan consensus calling for the case to be reopened, possibly even with Federal assistance. West’s statement, put out today by Talking Points Memo, resonates with controlled fury (emphasis added): itself in Sanford, Florida involving the shooting of 17-year-old Treyvon Martin. First of...

Marine sniper Carlos Hathcock earned a reputation for disposing of Viet Cong and NVA officers. More recently, U.S. Army and Marine Corps snipers in Iraq and Afghanistan have proven the effectiveness of the single, precisely placed rifle bullet. Zietsev was credited with 242 kills, while Hathcock's total of 93 is just as impressive when you consider that some were executed...
