    Department of Veteran Affairs patient advocate who was recorded on a security camera assaulting a veteran patient still has his job. Video of the encounter, released by WSB-TV, shows Phillip Webb, a 73-year-old Vietnam veteran, being choked, body-slammed, and thrown to the ground at the Department of Veterans Affairs Clinic at Fort McPherson.

    QUEENS — A 74-year-old former New York City barber has been indicted in the 1976 murder of a World War I veteran who went to his shop for a haircut and vanished, authorities said. Martin Motta, of Queens, was arraigned Wednesday on a second-degree murder charge. He is accused of killing George Clarence Seitz, 81, on Dec. 10, 1976. Seitz was last seen alive leaving his home in the Jamaica neighborhood of Queens. Authorities located his dismembered remains in 2019 following a tip from a woman who said she witnessed his burial more than four decades earlier. Authorities believe the...

    The decaying body of an Army veteran went undiscovered at a Massachusetts facility for a month — because no one bothered to look in an emergency exit stairwell, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs. A 45-page report released Thursday detailed the disappearance and death of Timothy White, 62, whose “significantly decayed” corpse was discovered in June 2020 in a stairwell at the Bedford Veterans Quarters in Massachusetts. White, who had recently been homeless, started living at the privately operated, VA-owned building in January 2020. He was reported missing from his single-occupancy room on May 13 and lived just down...

    A disabled Army veteran was attacked in a grocery store parking lot in Louisville on Mother’s Day after a group of four black women called her a “white bitch.” A Kentucky court will now have to decide if the attack was a hate crime — which it very clearly appears to be. The victim, Pamela Ahlstedt-Brown, told WAVE 3 News that she was leaving a Kroger and was parked in a handicapped space near the entrance. When she started to back out of the space, she said she noticed another vehicle behind her, blocking her in. “I get out and...
  • Pentagon fears there could be an INSIDE attack during Biden's inauguration and will vet all 25,000 National Guard troops stationed in DC - as Army reservist with 'secret' security clearance is arrested in Capitol siege

    U.S. defense officials say they are worried about an insider attack during President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all of the 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington for the event. The massive undertaking reflects the extraordinary security concerns that have gripped Washington following the deadly January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump rioters. It also underscores fears that some of the very people assigned to protect the city over the next several days could present a threat to the incoming president and other VIPs in attendance.

    Officials in San Diego County have issued an alert after three people have suffered documented fatal overdoses from a new form of the drug fentanyl know as carfentanil. It would only take 2 mg of the drug to cause a deadly overdose meanwhile it would only take .02 mg of carfentanil to have the same fatal results, CBS Sacramento reported. Langdon Fielding is an emergency veterinarian at Loomis Basin Equine. He said he uses fentanyl on horses for pain relief. "Basically it's super strong morphine-like a really strong drug to control pain," said Fielding. Carfentanil is similar to fentanyl but...

    The New Jersey couple who raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in a viral charity campaign for a homeless man were allegedly working with the vagrant as part of an elaborate ruse, according to a new report. Prosecutors believe that Mark D’Amico and Kate McClure conspired with homeless man Johnny Bobbitt to create their get-rich-quick scheme in 2017, NBC’s Philadelphia affiliate reported Wednesday. The couple turned themselves in to authorities on Wednesday, but Bobbitt was still at large, the news station said.

    When a veteran started offering traditional remarks at a military flag-folding ceremony, several uniformed airmen assaulted him, dragging him out of the room because his remarks mentioned God. Now First Liberty Institute lawyers representing retired Senior Master Sergeant Oscar Rodriguez are demanding that the U.S. Air Force apologize and punish those responsible or face a federal civil-rights lawsuit. For countless years, service members have given the “flag-folding speech” at military and civic events, including retirement ceremonies. Traditionally, this speech explains the colors, symbols, and history of the flag. The flag-folding speech also contains several religious references, including, “Let us pray...

    Bishop Larry Wright had been preaching for about 20 minutes on New Year's Eve when he saw the front door of his North Carolina church swing open. In marched a young disheveled man whom he'd never seen before. In one hand the man had a semi-automatic assault rifle; in the other, a magazine. He wasn't. Wright, 57, is a City Council member. But he was also a career military man a former paratrooper and drill sergeant who retired in 1997 so his training kicked in as he descended the pulpit's three steps: Was there a bullet still in the chamber?...

    Owner-directed aggression in dogs has been written and talked about at length, but feline owner-directed aggression has received less attention. In dogs, “conflict aggression” has replaced “dominance aggression” as a more accurate description of the behavior’s motivation. The change occurred because pundits no longer accept the premise that the relationship between dogs and their owners is governed by pack mentality, as neither dogs in the wild nor, as it turns out, wolves seem to organize themselves along these lines. With this in mind, it seems ludicrous to discuss dominance or status-related aggression in cats, as they do not organize themselves...

    Sixteen children and a handful of their mothers found the only door to their library room blocked by a man who held hunting knives in each hand as he screamed, “I’m going to kill some people!” Dustin Brown, 19, specifically wanted to kill children Tuesday at Morton Public Library, he said after the would-be victims escaped safely. Had he brought a firearm instead, “It would’ve been a different story,” James Vernon said Thursday. Blood was shed, but mostly Vernon’s, because the retired chess club teacher kept his cool, gave his class an avenue of flight and remembered the knife-fight training...
