ChicagoTribune:Cops: Student acted erratically day before he killed his parents at Central Michigan University
Remember CMU? It had dropped from everyone’s radar, I think because the media is more about narrative and doesn’t really care for blacks in America.
James Eric Davis Jr., 19, was arrested without incident shortly after midnight Saturday following an intensive daylong manhunt that included more than 100 police officers scouring the campus area, authorities said. Officers found him after someone aboard a train spotted a person along railroad tracks in Mount Pleasant, and called police.
A day before a Central Michigan University sophomore from southwest suburban Plainfield fatally shot his parents inside his dorm, he acted erratically, telling a campus police officer that someone was out to kill him, authorities said Saturday, hours before he was formally charged with murder.
LATimes:Man in custody after potential threat to Cypress College leads to canceled classes
The man, who police are not identifying, sent a text to his family in Whittier that contained a “nonspecific threat that a person was potentially suicidal and was considering shooting a school,” police said.
The man did not identify a targeted school in the text, but Cypress College is the last one he attended, Scoggins said.
There are no guns registered to the man in custody, and police do not believe he had access to firearms illegally, Scoggins said.
DallasMorningNews:Texas AG makes ‘odd’ request of public schools following effort to regulate their role in elections
The Collin County school district is among several in Texas that have received open-records requests from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office asking for — among other things — emails from its superintendents and principals pertaining to voting and elections. Mesquite and Grapevine-Colleyville ISDs also confirmed receiving similar requests.
In February, Paxton issued cease-and-desist letters to three districts, including Lewisville ISD, accusing them of “unlawful electioneering” and saying they used taxpayer resources to advocate for certain political candidates and measures.
Superintendents are freaking out.
Houston Chronicle:Man shot, killed after putting on bulletproof vest at party in Houston
Officers were called about 1:30 a.m. to the 300 block of West 23rd Street. Investigators said a partygoer shot the man after the victim put on the vest and fled with another witness, the Houston Chronicle reported.
RT:US embassy in Turkey closed over security threat amid tensions between nations
Starting March 5, the Embassy will provide “only emergency services,” the Monday announcement said. Routine actives, including visa interviews will not be held during the period of restrictions. The notice also advised US citizens in Turkey should avoid large crowds, keep a low profile and otherwise be cautious.
Also on Monday, the Turkish state news agency Anadolu reported the arrest of 12 people in Ankara as part of an investigation into suspected jihadists. The 12 were among 20 people in the case, for whom arrest warrants were issued by the state prosecutor’s office, the report said. It was not immediately clear whether the arrests were connected to the closure of the embassy. The Anadolu report was published hours after the US announcement.
The embassy move comes amid a period of high tension between Turkey and the US over Ankara’s cross-border military operation in Syria. Turkish troops and proxy forces are attacking the US-supported Kurdish militias, which the Turkish government considers a security threat.
Esquire:THE DRUGGING OF THE AMERICAN BOY
By the time they reach high school, nearly 20 percent of all American boys will be diagnosed with ADHD. Millions of those boys will be prescribed a powerful stimulant to “normalize” them. A great many of those boys will suffer serious side effects from those drugs. The shocking truth is that many of those diagnoses are wrong, and that most of those boys are being drugged for no good reason—simply for being boys. It’s time we recognize this as a crisis.
