BigTroy2018: eminent domain rail to Houston and feral hog poisoning
Not endorsing big Troy but he brings up a couple of points. 1) a private company will be using eminent domain to take peoples land to profit by building a high speed rail to Houston. Houston? Who wants to go to Houston more than once?
2) the state of Texas and federal government are considering a poison to kill feral hogs in our state. What that means is if you go hog hunting—you can’t eat the meat!
Now from Fox…
Foxnews:Fort Bragg soldier charged in cold case brutal rape, kidnapping of Texas teen girl
A Fort Bragg solider was charged Friday in the brutal kidnapping and rape of a teenager in Texas in a 2013 case whose trail had gone cold, officials said.
Levi Goss, 24, was arrested in North Carolina last week on a DUI charge and was linked to the Texas case from 2013 by a DNA test, KHOU reported.
Authorities said the assault happened Feb. 5, 2013 when the 16-year-old girl was ambushed while walking near a school and hit over the head with an axe by an attacker wearing a mask.
Foxnews:Brutal DC murders linked to credit card scam involving rapper ‘Jugga Knott,’ reports say
The murders happened on Dec. 28 during an 8-hour span. Ronzay Green, 23, was first gunned down in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven in Northeast D.C and efforts to save him were unsuccessful. Police in Prince George’s County and Washington, D.C. then found Armani Coles, 27, dead on the side of Interstate-295 in Maryland and the body of Kerrice Lewis, 23, inside a burning car in a Southeast D.C. alley.
In a 10-page affidavit, witnesses told police all three victims were involved in a credit card scheme with Dennis Whitaker, a 23-year-old rapper, who allegedly decided to kill the trio after believing he was going to be set up for a robbery, FOX5 DC reported.
“Jugga Knott” — who’s now charged in one of the killings.
Foxnews:Vehicle attempts to enter National Security Agency campus; several injured
Several people were taken to the hospital after the vehicle tried to enter the campus on Fort Meade just after 7 a.m., the NSA said in a statement. The conditions of the injured were unknown.
“…preliminary reports do not presently indicate that there are injuries attributable to gunfire.”
The shooting occurred at the visitors gate off Route 32 at the U.S. military installation. The highway was quickly closed off in both directions as police responded to the incident. Video from the scene showed an SUV riddled with bullets, the vehicle’s airbags were deployed and bloodied items were on the ground. The SUV also appeared to have crashed into a white barrier.
FBI Baltimore has assumed the investigative lead in the Fort Meade incident
Kyodo:Japan tells U.N. of suspected N. Korea sanctions evasion at sea
According to the ministry, a Maritime Self-Defense Force airplane spotted a North Korea-flagged tanker and another tanker registered in Belize alongside each other on the high seas about 250 kilometers east of Shanghai in the early hours of Tuesday.
Japan reported to the United Nations on Wednesday an alleged transfer of goods between tankers in the East China Sea in violation of sanctions against North Korea, the Foreign Ministry said.
Such ship-to-ship transfers are among the activities banned by U.N. Security Council resolutions adopted in response to North Korea’s nuclear weapon and ballistic missile testing.
Kyodo:S. Korea gov’t to pay for hosting N. Koreans during Winter Olympics
South Korea decided Wednesday to pay the costs of hosting hundreds of North Koreans during the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, brushing aside concerns that could contravene international sanctions imposed over the North’s nuclear and missile tests.
Sydney Morning Herald:Hun Sen’s Cambodia slides even further into dictatorship
Cambodia’s ruling party has drawn-up a five-year plan that critics say will entrench the dictatorship of strongman Hun Sen through intimidation, harassment and arrests.
The plan crushes hopes that Hun Sen would allow a return to political freedoms and a semblance of democracy after mid-year elections.
The party has said it will increase surveillance, shut out any opposition “force” and prevent the spread of information that “twists the truth,” according to the plan
