FoxNews:Kentucky school shooting leaves at least one dead and multiple wounded, officials say
At least one person was killed and several others were injured when a shooter opened fire at Marshall County High School in Benton, Ky., officials said.
FOX4News:Breakup may be to blame for Italy HS shooting
Authorities believe a high school breakup is part of the motivation behind a school shooting in Italy, Texas Monday morning.
Police arrested a 16-year-old boy after they say he shot a 15-year-old girl [with a stolen .380 pistol] several times in the Italy High School cafeteria in Ellis County. She was flown to a Dallas hospital for treatment.
A text sent out to family and friends of the 15-year-old girl says she is out of surgery and expected to survive, but is not 100 percent out of the woods.
PJ Media:Claim: Page and Strzok Referenced FBI ‘Secret Society’ that Met the Day After the Election
First, there are the allegations of shocking and substantial government surveillance abuses under President Obama outlined in the FISA abuse memo.
Secondly, the FBI lost five months of key text messages between the anti-Trump/pro-Clinton FBI officials Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page.
And now there’s talk of a “secret society” of officials within the FBI that apparently met the day after the election of Donald J. Trump to plot against the president-elect.
The lengthy statement from Trey Gowdy and Rep Ratcliffe details their concerns and a likely corruption investigation of the FBI and an attempted coup by the intelligence agency and it’s leadership.
ArmyNews:AMVETS says NFL censored its ad against flag protests
It isn’t really free speech as it is a paid ad during a NFL game but linked to the article as I didn’t know it was refused. That’s all you really need to know about what the NFL thinks.
MercuryNews:Tesla ‘on Autopilot’ slams into parked fire truck on freeway
The union representing Culver City firefighters whose truck was hit around 8:30 a.m. on Interstate 405 in Culver City tweeted that the Tesla driver said he had been using Tesla’s Autopilot system, which performs automated driving tasks.
The Tesla was moving at 65 mph at the time of the wreck.
Tesla, after the incident, said Autopilot is “intended for use only with a fully attentive driver.” The Model S owner’s manual has numerous warnings that attention to the road is vital while using Autopilot and other Tesla semi-autonomous driving functions.
DallasMorningNews:Man who raped, killed 18-year-old Zoe Hastings sentenced to life in prison
Under the [lesser] murder conviction, Cochran could be eligible for parole after serving at least 30 years.
This closes the chapter on this story we have been following.
CNN:Russian spy ship spotted 100 miles off North Carolina coast
The Russian spy ship, the Viktor Leonov, was spotted 100 miles south east of Wilmington, North Carolina, in international waters, according to a US military official, just days after the vessel was seen leaving the capital of Trinidad and Tobago, Port of Spain.
Two US military officials said the Russian ship is being tracked by the destroyer USS Cole and other naval assets.
KTLA:Skydiver Dies After Landing on Roof of Perris Home: Fire Department
A skydiver has died after landing on the roof of a home in Perris, authorities said Monday.
A witness who lives near the Caldera Street home told KTLA that the skydiver’s parachute was never deployed and did not open. The witness said he had called paramedics.
By the time Ali Muhassen observed the solo skydiver, he appeared to be unconscious.
More than 20 people have died in skydiving-related incidents at the Perris facility since 2000, according to the Riverside Press-Enterprise
Kyodo:1 dead, dozen injured as volcano erupts near Kusatsu ski resort in Japan
A volcano near a ski resort in eastern Japan erupted Tuesday morning [unexpectedly], killing a Japanese defense force member taking part in training and injuring 11 others, including two people who were left in serious condition.
The 2,171-meter volcano had been dormant for the past 3,000 years, although another of the peaks comprising Mt. Kusatsu-Shirane erupted in 1983.
