  • Case dismissed against lawmaker accused of damaging monument

    11/16/2020 8:53:31 AM PST · by devane617 · 28 replies
    A judge in Virginia dismissed charges on Monday that were filed against a prominent Black state senator after police said that she and others conspired to damage a Confederate monument in the city of Portsmouth. The Virginian-Pilot reports the charges against state Sen. Louise Lucas were dismissed at the request of the city’s top prosecutor, who said the elements of the charges were not properly met. Portsmouth's police department charged Lucas and several others in August with conspiracy to commit a felony and injury to a monument in excess of $1,000.
  • Virginia Cops Charge State Senator and Other Democrats With Felonies in Statue Toppling That Nearly Killed a Man

    A Democratic state senator, elected school board member, multiple representatives of the NAACP, and a passel of taxpayer-supported public defenders have been charged with felonies for tearing down a Confederate statue and nearly killing a man. You’ll remember the June 10th incident, which was widely mocked for being a play-stupid-games, win-stupid-prizes moment, when those pulling down the statue didn’t bother to see who was standing in its path. Any levity over it, however, instantly vanished when the man suffered severe brain damage from the incident. That horrific sight triggered an investigation, resulting in the felony charges Portsmouth, Virginia Police Chief Angela...

    If we’re going to make America great again, we have to know what made it great in the first place. That’s why the Left went into a frenzy of vandalism in tearing down statues earlier this summer, not just of Confederates but of those notable slaveowners Lincoln, Grant, and Frederick Douglass. To repudiate American history is to repudiate America itself. In response, lovers of freedom have deplored the destruction and denounce the barbarians, but few are mounting a robust and informed response to their hatred of American history itself. Yet if there is anything that this orgy of destruction should...
  • Virginia state Sen. Lucas faces felony charges for damaging Confederate monument

    [snip] Senate President Pro Tempore Louise Lucas, D-Portsmouth, was charged with conspiracy to commit a felony and injury to a monument in excess of $1,000. She was one of seven people charged, which included NAACP leaders. Monday's charges came one day before the Virginia Senate and House of Delegates convened in a special session to address COVID-19-related budget issues, criminal justice reform and other legislative priorities. Democrats have a 21-19 majority in the Senate, but if Lucas is absent, Democrats only can have one dissenter if they want to pass some of the more controversial pieces of legislation. The tie...

    A Virginia state senator and several NAACP officials were slapped with two felony charges over their alleged roles in the destruction of a Confederate statue by a mob in Portsmouth, Virginia. A protester received life-altering injuries in that incident when a statue fell on his head. "As the result of our efforts in this matter, we have identified and secured arrest warrants of numerous individuals who conspired, organized, and participated in the felonious acts on June 10th. This investigation yielded the same results of holding individuals who commit crimes in our city accountable but was done in a safe manner...

    President Donald Trump says his reelection campaign will hold telephone town halls to speak to supporters as the coronavirus pandemic has made holding large, in-person campaign rallies more difficult. Trump held what was described as his "first ever TELE-Rally" on Friday, delivering 23 minutes of stream-of-consciousness remarks on a variety of topics, including his administration's Covid-19 response to criticisms of presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. "I wanted to be with you, and this is really replacing our rallies that we all love so much," Trump told supporters dialed into a telephone call, noting that, given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, "we're...

    This is the shocking moment two customers attacked members of staff in a kebab shop - while a man calmly sat among the chaos eating his chips and unwittingly became a meme sensation. The footage, believed to be taken inside Ken's Kebabs in Portsmouth, was posted on Twitter on Friday at around 4.40pm. It begins with a young man wearing a grey top and blue cap hurling abuse at a worker, who retaliates by throwing a pair of tongs at him as another aggressive customer, in a blue jacket, enters the fray. Four men, who appear to also work in...

    Harris is cutting her entire field team in the state and closing field offices in Portsmouth, Manchester, and Keene, the campaign said. Her campaign had more than 20 staffers in the state. "We had to lay people off. Yes, we did. We had to lay people off," Harris said in Ankeny, Iowa, on Friday. "I am very sad about that. It was a very tough decision that we had to make, but frankly a necessary decision. I am all-in in Iowa. And I intend to win."

    The Queen today paid tribute to 'my generation' as she saluted the heroism of D-Day veterans at a 75th anniversary event attended by Donald Trump and world leaders including Theresa May, Emmanuel Macron, Angela Merkel and Justin Trudeau. In a moving ceremony in Portsmouth 300 heroes who survived the invasion of France in 1944 were guests of honour and a group stood and saluted the thousands who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting Hitler's Germany on Normandy's beaches. Mr Trump, who was accompanied by First Lady Melania, sat next to the Queen and Prince Charles and they smiled and chatted surrounded...

Ralph Northam has been calling Democratic leaders saying he isn't one of the two men in the image. Virginia Sen. Louise Lucas who represents Portsmouth said Northam called her this morning and said he wouldn’t step down. “I’m not going to resign because it’s not me in that photo,” Lucas said, recalling what he told her.

    It seems weary commuters will have to wait four more months before they can start using the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge between Portsmouth and Kittery, Maine. The lift-span bridge will now be open to traffic in mid-May, eight months after cars were supposed to start using it to cross the Piscataqua River, according to an updated construction schedule from Cianbro, the Pittsfield-based construction company hired by the state of Maine to build the bridge. Cianbro spokesman Alan Grover did not return a interview request Tuesday to explain why bridge construction has been delayed. Cianbro started construction on the $160 million...

    For the better part of a dozen years, a group of employees and managers at the Navy’s largest public shipyard operated what amounted to an unsanctioned, off-the-books police force, equipping it with illegally or improperly obtained weapons, vehicles and fuel, wasting an estimated $21 million in public funds in the process. Those are the findings of an internal command-directed investigation performed by the Naval Sea Systems Command’s inspector general, which undertook an in-depth review of the case after military criminal investigators and federal prosecutors declined to do so. The investigation, which was conducted in 2014, has not been previously disclosed....

    Councilman Mark Whitaker says he wants city leaders to consider banning racist groups from protesting in Portsmouth. Whitaker sent an email Tuesday to City Council members, City Manager Lydia Pettis Patton and City Attorney Solomon Ashby requesting that the group discuss the issue at the Aug. 21 public work session. The councilman said he made the request in light of “the tragic events in Charlottesville and other issues across the country involving White-Supremacist, White-Nationalist, Neo-Nazi, and other hate groups with a history and pattern of perpetrating violence on citizens.” On Saturday, a white-supremacist gathering in Charlottesville turned deadly when a...
