    Annette shows the spider she found in her garage that she trapped inside a glass jar. Her friend has her phone camera out and pointed at the spider. They find out that every time Annette's friend taps the phone screen to focus, the spider inside the jar moves and flinches like she is directly touching it in this creepy clip from Riverside, California on May 27.

    After learning George Zimmerman was scheduled to speak at The Riverside Hotel this weekend as part of a multiday conference, the hotel canceled the event. Zimmerman was listed as featured speaker at the “Lethal Force Gun Laws 2021 Tactics & Strategies Conference.” It was scheduled to take place Friday through Monday. In 2012, Zimmerman fatally shot Trayvon Martin, an unarmed Black teenager, and was later found not guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter after claiming self-defense. The shooting in Florida sparked a national conversation on racial profiling and so-called Stand Your Ground laws. “We recognize the immense pain that George...

    A memorial placed in Riverside to honor the 13 American service members who were killed in a suicide bombing at the Kabul airport as the U.S. exited Afghanistan late last month was found vandalized on Labor Day, police said Tuesday. The memorial, which consisted of 13 American flags and one Marine Corps flag, had recently been put up on the fence above the Ivy Street overpass, above the 91 Freeway, in remembrance of the fallen troops, according to a post on the Riverside Police Department’s Facebook page. Photos accompanying the Police Department’s post showed multiple flags at the memorial were...

He is survived by his mother, father and siblings, the city said in a Facebook post. The U.S. Marine Corps have yet to release the names of the victims among their ranks, and...

    The City of Riverside announced on Friday that the event, which was planned for 6 p.m. on Saturday, would not proceed at the Riverside Convention Center after it was "widely condemned" by residents, according to a press release from the city. Mayor Patricia Lock Dawson called the rally "divisive" and welcomed the decision from the Raincross Hospitality Corp., which manages the convention center through a city contract. "These quotes are going to make great exhibits in the lawsuit @RepMTG and I will be filing," Gaetz wrote in response on Saturday, retweeting images shared by a journalist of the city's press...

    An ongoing lawsuit has pried loose new records linked to a family of Sarasota Saudis who left home in a hurry just before 9/11. It was Halloween night, 2001. The horrors of 9/11 were still fresh on the the minds of Americans. At a time when everyone was on edge, the sight of a man disposing documents in a dumpster behind a Bradenton storage facility aroused suspicion. Summoned to the scene, Manatee County sheriff’s deputies confronted the man, who had a Tunisian passport. According to FBI records, authorities searched the dumpster and found “a self-printed manual on terrorism and Jihad,...

    A nightmare facing a couple who purchased a home for cash perfectly illustrates why having the government over-involved in the rental market is a disaster even for people who never meant to lease their property but are plagued by a squatter. A couple who bought a house in good faith, now find themselves mired in California’s labyrinthine tenants’ laws, exacerbated by the new COVID rules. Riverside is a large suburban area located about 50 miles east of downtown Los Angeles – although it’s still considered part of the Greater Los Angeles area. Tracie and Myles Albert, a young couple in...

    More than 20 people lived on the property, which had several makeshift dwellings, a nursery and vehicles used in production, Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco said. Marijuana was processed to honey oil, a highly potent concentrate made by extracting the high-inducing chemical THC from cannabis. All seven victims and witnesses were Laotian, Bianco said. Six people were found dead on the property, and a woman who was shot there died later at a hospital. Partially eaten pizza sat in boxes in a circular dirt driveway of the dilapidated two-bedroom house where the shootings occurred. Three cars were parked outside —...

    Flight 800: Breakthrough! Posted: March 13, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 One cannot underestimate the impact of what has just transpired in James and Elizabeth Sanderses' ongoing civil suit against the federal government and seven named individuals. The case number is federal EDNY, #01-CV-5447 JS. The United States government has declined to respond to the Sanderses' summary judgment motion – "Rule 56.1 Statement." Incredibly, by so declining, U.S. Attorney Kevin Cleary has conceded that the Sanderses' 32 damning charges against his clients cannot be rebutted. In so conceding, the Justice Department tacitly acknowledges that, yes, the TWA Flight...

    The Air Force, at California’s request, has assigned 160 doctors, nurses and other health care specialists to the state. Some teams deployed Thursday, including 20 people each to Eisenhower Health Hospital in Riverside County and Adventist Health Lodi Memorial Hospital in San Joaquin County. Both hospitals had beds available for extra patients, but they did not have the staff to care for them. It’s highlighting a growing problem across the state as coronavirus cases increase.

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man is charged with providing material support to the Islamic State extremist group, including attempting to buy multiple weapons and scouting potential targets for an attack in the Tampa Bay area, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.

    With all the attention focused Tuesday on Republican Mike Garcia’s smashing win in the special U.S. House election in California’s 25th District (Los Angeles), it was not surprising that the national press pretty much overlooked the big Republican win for state senate in the Golden State’s 28th District (Riverside). With nearly all votes counted, conservative State Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez rolled up 56 per cent of the vote over Democrat and Riverside County Board of Education member Elizabeth Romero. The special election was called to fill out the remainder of the term of Republican State Sen. Jeff Stone, who resigned earlier...

    Chairman of the Riverside County board of supervisors Manuel Perez said Thursday he will propose to rescind all county health orders currently in place as local health experts warn it could be too soon to pull back. The four orders that would be eliminated include the closure of schools, limitations on short term lodging, restrictions on golf courses, and the requirement of face masks and social distancing. This comes just a day after county public health officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser said, "Covid-19 has not been eliminated and it’s arguable whether we could even say it's been suppressed. We expect there...

    Riverside, CA – In a heartbreaking scene, a woman was taken from the Planned Parenthood abortion facility by gurney on March 6, 2020, and loaded into an ambulance for transport. Once she was inside the ambulance, a man holding the hand of a small boy, who appeared to be the family of the injured woman, were escorted over to the ambulance by what appeared to be a Planned Parenthood security guard for instructions. The family then followed the ambulance by private vehicle as it left the Planned Parenthood parking lot. The ambulance ran without sirens. It is common for abortion...
