Police, Officials Resign After Small Missouri Town Elects First Black Female Mayor    |  By

 
Most of the police force and several officials resigned after the small town of Parma, Missouri elected its first African American woman as mayor, reported KFVS.
Tyrus Byrd, a former city clerk, was officially sworn in as mayor on Tuesday after beating incumbent Randall Ramsey. Ramsey had served as mayor of Parma for 37 years under two terms.
The outgoing mayor said five of the city's six police officers submitted their resignation, citing "safety concerns." Parma's city attorney, clerk and water treatment supervisor also quit.
    Some Parma residents say they aren't worried about safety now that the police force has shrunk. "I think it's pretty dirty they all quit without giving her a chance," resident Martha Miller told KFVS. "But I don't think they hurt the town any by quitting, because who needs six police for 740 people."
At her swearing in ceremony, Byrd said that she is looking to getting things in order for the city.

Pot for Pets: Marijuana Cookies for Ailing Dogs Hit Market
With medical marijuana now legal in 23 states, and recreational use permitted in four states as well as Washington, D.C., a burgeoning cannabis industry is blooming in America.
The latest crop of potentially lucrative products? Pot for pets.
    Biscuits, edibles and capsules containing cannabis compounds are being marketed to owners of ailing and elderly animals as natural pain relievers and anti-inflammatory supplements. But these products aren't getting Fido stoned, claim proponents.

The move makes the 81-year-old "Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die" singer the latest celebrity to jump into the marijuana marketplace.
"Willie's Reserve" will be grown and sold in Colorado and Washington, where recreational pot is legal. Nelson said in a statement that he's "looking forward to working with the best growers in Colorado and Washington to make sure our product is the best on the market."
Nelson joins other famous pot personalities, including rapper Snoop Dogg, who endorses vaporizing products; singer Melissa Etheridge, developing marijuana-infused wine; and reality TV star and self-help guru Bethenny Frankel, who is working on a strain of Skinnygirl weed that wouldn't leave users with the munchies.

    A Baltimore man who died Sunday morning a week after his spine was nearly severed while in police custody was nabbed "without force or incident," according to a police report.
    Freddie Gray, 25, suffered severe injuries sometime after his arrest April 12, according to a lawyer for his family. Video taken by a bystander of the arrest does not show the injury occurring, but did capture four police officers dragging a screaming Gray to a police van.
    In a police report obtained by The Baltimore Sun, Officer Garrett Miller wrote that police on bike patrol stopped Gray after he was seen fleeing "unprovoked upon noticing police presence." Police said a knife was found clipped to Gray's pants pocket and he was arrested on a weapons charge.
    "During transport to Western District via wagon transport the defendant suffered a medical emergency and was immediately transported to Shock Trauma via medic," Miller wrote in the report.
An attorney representing Gray's family, William Murphy, said the video proves the injury happened while Gray was in custody.

Bear Necessities: Warning as hungry grizzlies awaken, venture out for food  By FoxNews.com  Published April 20, 2015

Around the nation, bears are waking up after winter hibernation, and wildlife experts warn they are hungry and possibly dangerous.
Campers and hikers in the West should be especially careful, as grizzly bears have been spotted leaving their dens in eastern Idaho, and national parks including Yellowstone and Grand Teton, in Wyoming. In the next few weeks, simple math says human encounters are likely to increase.
"If you see a grizzly up close, it’s all about bear spray and hoping it isn’t a mama grizzly with cubs."- Tim Warner, Greater Yellowstone Coalition

Larry Darrell Upright's Obituary: 'Do Not Vote for Hillary Clinton'By Shamar Walters  TODAY
Larry Darrell Upright, 81, died at a hospital in Concord, North Carolina, last Monday, according to an obituary posted on a local funeral home's website.
It describes the father of two and grandfather of three as an "avid golfer" and "loving" man whose "greatest joy was his family."
However, his relatives added an unusual request. "The family respectfully asks that you do not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016," the obituary concludes.
It also asked people to donate to a Florida children's hospital instead of sending flowers.
A memorial service for Upright was held on Thursday.

This how how a police state gets started
Warrants and subpeonas are supposed to be issued by judges. Or at least that's how things are supposed to work. Increasingly, though, state and federal law enforcement officials are issuing what are called "administrative warrants (link is external)" -- no judge required. Not all judges are happy about that:
In March a federal judge enjoined the chief law enforcement official of Mississippi, Attorney General Jim Hood, for a more common form of lawless use of these warrants. Hood issued his own administrative subpoena to Google alleging that it published “obnoxious, tasteless and criminal content,” according to the injunction order.

Police in this State Are Suggesting a New Rule that is “Bonkers”

Governments are always spinning what they do as a way to protect people.  In this case, Topeka, Kansas cops say that they are trying to make sure that they make it home alive, but, when police departments are becoming increasingly militarized, who is really in danger here?
So, what are cops wanting you to do?
Put your hands in the air whenever you encounter a police officer.
Now, I don’t know about you, but this whole concept seems like a way to make people feel guilty before they even talk to a cop about anything.  Even more insidious, it makes it pretty darn difficult to film corrupt cops when you are looking at them with your hands in the air.  How are you going to film them breaking the law while they do it?
Officer Matt McClimans said:
“It doesn’t matter what the infraction is, it doesn’t matter if it’s a soccer mom, it’s just gaining that hand compliance. […] We have to treat every encounter as if it’s dangerous.”
They have to treat every encounter as if it’s dangerous? To civilians, maybe, but this just seems like a setup to keep us compliant and prevent accountability.
U.S. Prepared to Intercept Iranian Convoy Suspected of Carrying Weapons to Yemen
NBC News
American warships are prepared to intercept a convoy of Iranian ships suspected of carrying weapons to Houthi rebel forces in Yemen, senior defense and military officials told NBC News on Monday.
An Iranian convoy of freighters, escorted by warships from the Iranian military and Revolutionary Guard forces, appears headed for Yemen, the officials said.
They emphasized that while the USS Theodore Roosevelt carrier group would be in position to intercept the convoy, an intercept could also be carried out by Saudi Arabia, Egypt or the United Arab Emirates, which are patrolling the waters off Yemen.
Supported by the United States, Saudi Arabia has led Sunni Arab countries in carrying out more than three weeks of airstrikes targeting the rebels, who are backed by Iran and have seized parts of Yemen.
There is no indication that U.S. or other coalition warships have been in contact with the Iranians, but one official told NBC News, "They know we're there."
Some U.S. officials are concerned that the leak of the information is not good, coming at the same time as the United States and other countries try to reach a final agreement on Iran's nuclear program.
"Since this is now public, the Iranians may feel they've been backed into a corner" and attempt to run through any blockade set up by the coalition warships, one official said.

Sunken WWII-era aircraft carrier found off NorthernCalifornia

File - In this July 1946 file photo is the USS Independence near Bikini Atoll. Scientists have rediscovered a mostly intact World War II aircraft carrier the U.S. Navy scuttled off the Northern California coast decades ago. The U.S.S. Independence was located and video recorded as part of a National Oceanic and Atmospheric mission to locate and map an estimated 300 historic shipwrecks in the waters outside San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge. Images captured by a remotely controlled miniature submarine showed the Independence sitting upright about 30 miles west of the coast and near the Farallon Islands.
An aerial view of the Independence at anchor in San Francisco Bay in 1951. There is visible damage from the atomic bomb tests at Bikini Atoll. The ship, which was scuttled in the waters off the Farallon Islands, was recently located by scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

  2. SAN FRANCISCO — Scientists have rediscovered a mostly intact World War II aircraft carrier used in atomic bomb tests and then sunk at a secret location off the Northern California coast decades ago.
    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration located and recorded video of the U.S.S. Independence as part of a mission to map an estimated 300 historic shipwrecks in the waters outside San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge.
    Images captured by a remotely controlled miniature submarine showed the Independence sitting upright about 30 miles off the coast near the Farallon Islands. A plane is visible in a hangar.
    The Independence operated in the Pacific during the war and served as a target ship for two Bikini Atoll atomic bomb tests in 1946.
    "This ship fought a long, hard war in the Pacific, and after the war, was subjected to two atomic blasts that ripped through the ship," NOAA scientist James Delgado said.
    Despite the damage incurred, the Independence continued to float. The Navy used the ship to study nuclear decontamination while it was moored in San Francisco.
    The Navy towed the Independence out to sea in 1951 and scuttled it out of concern the damaged ship would sink near the city. The military branch kept the site of the ship's sinking secret.
    The contamination poses little danger to public health because of the ship's isolation 2,600 feet underwater and 30 miles from the coast, scientists say. Neither the submarine nor tools used to examine the ship showed any signs of increased radiation, Delgado said.
    Kai Vetter, a University of California, Berkeley, nuclear engineering professor, said the ship posed a serious risk to workers at the San Francisco shipyard where the ship was moored after the atomic tests.
    "But the risk to the public now is extremely small," Vetter said. "Water is a very efficient shield."

Reynosa: Gun Battles, Riots Erupt In Mexico Over Arrest Of Drug Cartel Leader 'El Gafe' [Video]
In the Mexican city of Reynosa, gun battles and riots started after a Mexican drug cartel leader known as “El Gafe” was arrested. Multiple people were killed during the gun battles, and burning vehicles were used as part of a blockade near a bridge.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, a lynch mob in Tehuacan, Mexico, hung multiple robbers from a tree, including a pregnant woman and a teenager. A different pregnant woman was murdered in Mexico, and her baby cut from the the womb because the killer wanted a baby of her own.
The United States consulate located in the city of Matamoros issued a message saying it “has learned of several firefights and roadblocks throughout the city” of Reynosa. It urged Americans to “use extreme caution and to remain in-doors.”
“The city is completely out of control,” said Francisco Garcia Cabeza de Vaca, former mayor of Reynosa.

Race creeps into stalled vote on nominee for attorney general

African American and other civil rights leaders infuriated over the stalled confirmation vote on Loretta E. Lynch, the first black woman to be nominated for attorney general, are casting the delay as an issue with racial overtones.
They are urging the Senate to act immediately and end a process that has now lasted more than five months.
Activists across the country are three days into a hunger strike over the Senate’s failure to vote on Lynch. African American groups have also protested outside the offices of senators who oppose her leading the Justice Department. And one Democratic senator has compared the holdup to the treatment of civil rights activist Rosa Parks in the segregated South, saying that Lynch has been “asked to sit in the back of the bus when it comes to the Senate calendar.”

Tim McGraw trashed for playing Sandy Hook concert


HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Tim McGraw is defending his decision to headline a Connecticut concert to benefit a Sandy Hook group, responding to critics who call it a gun-control fundraiser.
A concert at the XFINITY Theatre in Hartford, Connecticut, on July 17 featuring McGraw will benefit Sandy Hook Promise.
The nonprofit group in Newtown was organized by families whose children and siblings were among the 20 children and six educators fatally shot at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012.
Its stated objective is to prevent gun violence and focus on mental health issues.
Gun rights advocates took to Facebook and Twitter, calling McGraw a hypocrite for headlining the event. Others tweeted messages of support to McGraw for lending his name to Sandy Hook Promise.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A plumber told jurors in a police corruption trial that undercover agents burst into his home, took $10,000 in tuition money from a safe and planted methamphetamine and a digital scale.
Police paperwork showed the officers now on trial reported only finding only $8,000 in the safe. Prosecutors also said the officers also reported only about half of the $1,200 that plumber Theodore Carobine had in his pocket.
The testimony Friday came in the trial of six former drug squad officers charged with stealing cash and drugs from suspects, planting evidence and lying in court.
