COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. –A boy received a week’s suspension after a teacher spotted a toy gun during an online class, KDVR reports. On Aug. 27, 12-year-old Isaiah Elliot, a Grand Mountain student, was in his online art class when he allegedly flashed a toy gun across his computer screen. It was neon green and black with an orange tip. On the side were the words “Zombie Hunter.” According to the sheriff’s report, the teacher said she assumed it was a toy gun, not a real gun. When the principal found out, Isaiah was given a five-day suspension. The El Paso

The first COVID-19 death associated with a massive biker rally in Sturgis, South Dakota has been reported weeks after the event attracted more than 400,000 vehicles and drew widespread concern from public health officials. The death was reported by Minnesota Department of Health Infectious Disease Director Kris Ehresmann at a Wednesday briefing. Minnesota — South Dakota’s neighbor to the east — is tracking an ongoing outbreak of 50 cases tied to the August event, Ehresmann said. A Minnesota man who died was in his 60s and had underlying health conditions. The 50-case outbreak only includes people who attended the event, Ehresmann said

The mayor of US capital Washington on Wednesday asked a committee studying the fate of its monuments to figures linked to slavery and racism to focus on “contextualizing, not removing” federal memorials, after the White House slammed its recommendations as “ludicrous.” The “DC Faces” group had recommended that seven monuments, including the Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial and a statue of Christopher Columbus, should be “removed, renamed or contextualized.” It also wants a change in the names of some 50 city schools and parks named after controversial historical figures who “encouraged the oppression of African Americans and other communities of color

MSNBC’s Joy Reid Doubles Down on ‘Way

MSNBC host Joy Reid on Wednesday night said she should have been more “sensitive” two days earlier when she seemingly compared radicalized Trump supporters to “the way Muslims act,” remarks that sparked outrage among Muslim activists and organizations. More specifically, it was a non-apology. “For decades, America’s Muslim community has endured blanket portrayals that focus on one thing, just one thing, terrorism,” she said Wednesday. “Particularly after 9/11, profiling became a near American obsession for anybody Brown—god forbid with a beard or headscarf, whether they were Muslim or not, traveling through an airport could be hell. Physical attacks on not

WASHINGTON — Joe Biden has finally emerged from his basement — and Democrats are relieved. After months of near-seclusion at his home in Delaware, the Democratic nominee has given two well-crafted speeches in two weeks: an eloquent and hopeful acceptance speech at his party’s convention and a forceful attack Monday on President Trump over the boiling issue of urban violence. So far, so good — but two speeches do not a winning campaign make. Biden needs to do much more in the two months before election day, pandemic or not. Aides handle the 77-year-old candidate as if he were as

Trump’s ‘law and order message

Democrats told top advisers to presidential nominee Joe Biden that President Donald Trump’s “law and order” message and images of disorder during anti-racism protests risked undermining Biden in mid-western swing states, reported The Washington Post Wednesday. According to the report, Biden’s campaign was caught off-guard by unrest last week in Kenosha, Minnesota, after the shooting of Black man Jacob Blake by police and violence between pro-Trump and Black Lives Matter supporters in Portland, Oregon. It swiftly responded by scheduling a series of events for the presidential nominee in Pennsylvania, Minnesota, and Wisconsin and in Michigan. The Republicans narrowly flipped Pennsylvania

Blaze Radio at Arizona State University announced on Monday that its board of directors voted to remove Rae’Lee Klein, the station manager, from her position at the radio after she tweeted on Saturday about Jacob Blake, who was shot by a police officer and paralyzed on Aug. 23 in Kenosha, Wisconsin. (Snip) The article included graphic details from the police report for a sexual assault Blake is accused of committing earlier this year. A Kenosha Police Association attorney has said responding officers were aware Blake had a warrant out for his arrest for a charge he is facing of felony

While the election isn’t until November 3, it looks like lots of people and businesses are, in a sense, “voting” early — with their feet. In pre-pandemic January, I wrote here about the blue-state exodus in which thousands of blue-state residents, fed up with high taxes, heavy regulations and “woker-than-thou” policies, are fleeing the sinking blue ships and moving to red states. Now it appears we are seeing a blue-city exodus as well. (Snip) Noticeably absent among liberal-city priorities is peace, safety, order and respect for private property. Most of the country’s largest cities are besought with problems, from rising

LOS ANGELES – As it became the first state to cross the sad milestone of 700,000 cases of COVID-19, California has embarked on a new tiered plan for reopening businesses that has some crying foul. Critics say the system doesn’t take into account that some businesses can operate safely even in counties with relatively high numbers of COVID-cases. And it hits some businesses harder than others, even when it appears they perform similar services. “While certain businesses are allowed to open … many others continue to be greatly limited, hampered or even closed,” said San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond, who held

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden dodged questions from the press on Monday after addressing civil unrest publicly for the first time, providing ammunition for supporters of President Trump to claim he is going out of his way to avoid the media. Roughly 63 days out from Election Day, Biden delivered a speech in Pittsburgh in which he accused Trump of being incapable of preventing the violence that’s sprouted across multiple cities this summer. Upon concluding his speech, the former vice president declined questions from reporters in the room, but he did acknowledge their presence at one point. “There’s not a

Make no mistake, Kamala Harris, not Joe Biden, is on the Democratic ticket as the face of the leadership the country is demanding now. Her vice presidential candidacy, in essence, is a bid to become America’s second Black president. Biden is running as the Democrats’ fixit man, pledging to restore normalcy and decency to American politics. Harris’ role is symbolic, as veep choices usually are, but what she represents is truly substantive this time: Harris, a Black woman, embodies the most dependable constituency of the Democratic Party, a voting bloc that is finally rising in power and getting its due.

Unrest following the police shooting of Jacob Blake left vehicles and businesses throughout the downtown Kenosha area badly damaged, including one local car dealer that estimates its losses in the millions. Car Source, a car dealer in the city, was attacked when a mob descended into its lot and begin smashing cars on the first night of unrest last Sunday. There was an explosion and subsequent fire that spread from one vehicle to the next, one resident told Kenosha News. “It was a terrifying time,” said Josie Rodriguez, who lives next to Car Source. “I thought, ‘Oh my god, they’re
