Two teenagers were wounded Tuesday evening (May 23) in a shooting on Freret Street in Central City, according to New Orleans police. A 19-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the right leg and a 17-year-old boy suffered a gunshot wound to the left thigh, police said. Investigators were congregated at the intersection of Freret and Martin Luther King Boulevard, where police had cordoned off the river-bound side of Martin Luther King and an adjacent section of Freret. About five evidence cones had been placed at the intersection, including several in the roadway directly in front of a corner store.
Comments: See a pattern? I say, pull down all those "Martin Luther King" street signs; that´s got to be what´s causing the crime, not those old statues.

An illegal immigrant with a long history of deportations to Mexico, and who was released by local jail officials in defiance of a federal immigration hold, is now accused of raping one woman and assaulting another in a sickening crime spree. Sergio Jose Martinez, 31, is charged with 13 counts - including burglary, kidnapping, sodomy and sex abuse - in the knife-point attacks on two women in Portland on Monday. (Snip) Yet the local officials released him the next day in defiance of the federal immigration detainer, an agency spokeswoman told the Oregonian.

Eight years after it was given the power to meaningfully change smoking in America, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration moved to do so. On Friday, the FDA announced it would take advantage of powers in the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act — a law enacted under a Democratic Congress and then-President Obama — to cut the level of nicotine in cigarettes to nonaddictive levels. “A lot of people have been thinking about this for a long time, including experts in the agency, including myself,” FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in an interview with Bloomberg on Friday. The move shocked Washington
A machete-wielding man has killed one and injured several others after going on the rampage through a German supermarket this afternoon. The attacker, who reportedly screamed Allahu Akbar, ran into an Edeka shop in the northern city of Hamburg and knifed a customer to death before slashing at four others as he fled. He ran off but was pursued by passers-by who wrestled him to the ground and called police who made an arrest. Heavily armed officers have locked the area down and police helicopters have been seen above the crime scene. A motive for the knifing has not yet been established.
Fact-checking website Snopes is on the verge of financial collapse after its owner was accused of embezzling company funds to pay for his contentious divorce battle and lavish overseas trips with his new wife, a former Las Vegas escort and porn actress. The company´s financial woes have gotten so bad that Snopes´ owner David Mikkelson started a crowd-funding website pleading for donations this week, which raised over $500,000 from generous readers in its first day. But DailyMail.com can disclose significant facts which are entirely missing from the fact-checking website´s version of events - including the fraud allegations against Mikkeslon.
More than 500 teens flash mobbed police who came to disperse them during an unauthorized cookout at a Philadelphia recreation center. The mob occurred in Philadelphia´s Germantown neighborhood on Sunday night, outside the city-run Lonnie Young Recreation Center. Police said that the incident began at around 9.30pm, when officers arrived to find the center´s sidewalks and street filled with teenagers, believed to be age 12 to 17.

House Republicans said Tuesday they’ve included $1.6 billion in funding for President Trump’s border wall in their new homeland security spending bill, setting up fight with Democrats who have vowed to block any wall funding — even if it means sending the government into a partial shutdown. GOP leaders said the $1.6 billion fully meets Mr. Trump’s request to begin wall construction, which includes 32 miles of new border fencing in Texas, 28 miles of levee wall along the Rio Grande Valley, also in Texas, and 14 miles of replacement fence in San Diego. The bill also adds 500 new Border Patrol
ICE agents apparently love a good breakfast, and it doesn’t matter who’s making it. United States Immigrations Customs and Enforcement (ICE) officers detained three members of the kitchen staff at a restaurant in downtown Ann Arbor, Mich., on Wednesday morning–but only after sitting down to eat some waffles. Sava Lelcaj-Farah, the owner of Sava’s restaurant, told MLive that the incident was “really sad,” and “scares the whole community.” (Snip) When they were done, they “went into the kitchen to apprehend one of our employees who wasn’t on at the time,” as they suspected he did not have the proper documentation.
Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone used a recent television appearance to accuse those on food stamps of using them to buy drugs. “Hell, people use food stamps to buy marijuana — that’s illegal — or cocaine, or whatever the hell else people use to get high,” he said. “How do we make sure that we don’t take a system that is well-intentioned that becomes badly abused?” His comments came during an interview with Fox News´ “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” where he discussed the Trump administrations $4.1 trillion dollar budget, which includes a proposal to cut Medicaid by $800 billion over the
NHS England has told major trauma centres to prepare for a second terrorist attack this Bank Holiday weekend. The national clinical director for trauma Chris Moran urged staff in 27 cities to be ready for an incident, in a letter obtained by the Health Service Journal. (Snip) The letter asked that all staff had easy access to their major incident plan, as well as instructing them to carry identification at all times. They were also urged to ensure they knew what to do in case their hospital was placed on "lock down". Eighteen adults and 14 children are still receiving treatment in Manchester
The Manchester suicide bomber may have built a second device which is now in the hands of fellow jihadists, police fear. Officers who raided the home of Salman Abedi discovered a working bomb factory with a huge stash of explosive chemicals and other components. Security sources now believe that Abedi assembled the bomb himself after learning his trade in Libya. But the amount of material in his home has led to fears that he could have built more than one device and and distributed them to other British-based extremists. A security source told the Telegraph: "The worry is there was enough to
Gravesend, Brooklyn — A 12-year-old boy is in custody for allegedly punching an 80-year-old woman in the face and trying to set her on fire during an unprovoked attack outside her Brooklyn home, police said Wednesday.

MSNBC´s Andrea Mitchell on Wednesday criticized White House aide Stephen Miller for a heated exchange with a CNN reporter over President Trump´s immigration policy, calling him "rude." "Trump aide Stephen Miller lecturing Cuban-American Jim Acosta of CNN on green card policy which his family lived 1st hand," the MSNBC anchor tweeted, adding the hashtag "rude." (Snip) Miller and Acosta clashed during the White House press briefing over the new GOP legislation that aims to scale back legal immigration in the United States. The White House aide, who has long advocated for a hard-line immigration policy, made the case for a "merit-based" immigration
A mother of four living in Ohio was deported to Mexico after a traffic stop revealed she entered the country illegally from Mexico nearly 20 years ago. Beatriz Morelos Casillas, 37, was arrested for driving without a license near Cleveland, Ohio, on July 24. Tuesday, she was deported to Nuevo Laredo, one of the most dangerous places in Mexico and where the State Department issued a travel warning in December 2016 due to violent crime. Beatriz´s husband – who is here legally on a work visa – drove from Ohio to be with her and make sure she´s safe. Her relatives in Ohio called her deportation unfair and worry about the
President Obama and his allies are already whispering in the ear of the Democrat they´d like to see run for president next, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick. David Axelrod, Valerie Jarrett and even the former president himself, according to Politico, all see Patrick, who left politics in 2015, as an heir apparent. He, however, doesn´t seem that interested yet, while Obama´s ex-vice president Joe Biden, seems more primed to run. ´I´m trying to think about how to be helpful, because I care about the country, and I´m a patriot first,´ he told Politico for the pub´s Off Message podcast. ´It´s
A friend of mine who attended the Conservative Political Action Conference earlier this year -- I skipped it -- reported to me that the Young Republican men were "wearing their ties down past their [crotches]." I cleaned up the quote a bit for the benefit of a family newspaper. Though I´m not sure why I should bother when a White House communications director has helped so many staid institutions expand their horizons. As my National Review colleague Kyle Smith noted, the New York Times has a long history of insisting that vulgarities do not meet the definition of news fit to print.
Former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power is believed to have made "hundreds" of unmasking requests to identify individuals named in classified intelligence community reports related to Trump and his presidential transition team, according to multiple sources who said the behavior is unprecedented for an official in her position. Power was first identified by the Washington Free Beacon last month as a central figure in a congressional investigation into efforts by senior Obama administration officials to obtain classified intelligence information in what many allege was an effort to undermine President Donald Trump and his incoming national security team. Power is believed
I pray this is a joke. If it is satire, The Onion should ask for permission to reprint immediately. President Trump delivered an address to law enforcement last Friday, which triggered some progressive snowflakes because he joked about our police roughing up MS-13 gang members. It was a joke. If you can’t catch on when Trump is joking and when he’s not, I don’t know what to tell you. They’re often rather self-evident that he’s not actually hoping police are overly physical with detained suspects, but let’s move on to this part of this Washington Post op-ed about the matter. The
A pair of Chick-fil-A customers in Florida were unsatisfied with their local restaurant’s service — so they decided to trash the place on their way out. The incident took place on Monday night at a Chick-fil-A in the River City neighborhood of Jacksonville, Fla., according to Allison Music, a witness who shared footage of the ordeal on Facebook. In her post, Music explained that she was waiting for an order at Chick-fil-A when she saw a teenage boy arguing about his order with the staff “for a good 15 or 20 mins.” She also said the manager had locked up
John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton´s 2016 presidential campaign, told CNN´s Alisyn Camerota on Wednesday that he loses sleep "every night" with the "burden" of having lost the Electoral College to Donald Trump. Camerota asked Podesta whether Clinton was surprised at how often Trump invokes her name this far into his presidency. "It´s unprecedented," Podesta said. " You never saw that behavior from any other president who´s talking about the person they beat. I think it really just bugs the hell out of him that she got three million more votes than he did and he keeps coming back
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Newly minted White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders flipped Russia conspiracy questions during Tuesday’s press briefing, pointing to a lack of evidence against the Trump Administration and a host of evidence against Bill and Hillary Clinton. Sanders slammed media questions aimed at showing that there were any “misleading” actions by the Trump campaign or Trump Administration with regards to Russia. “The thing I see misleading is a year’s worth of stories that have been fueling a false narrative about this Russia collusion. And a phony scandal based on anonymous sources. And, I think if we’re gonna
Rosie O´Donnell said women should form their own political party after a Democratic congressman said Democrats would not hold back party funds from candidates who oppose abortion. New Mexico Representative and second-term Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Ben Ray Luján said ´there is not a litmus test´ for Democratic candidates in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections. ´As we look at candidates across the country, you need to make sure you have candidates that fit the district, that can win in these districts across America,´ Luján told The Hill in an interview published Monday. That includes candidates who do not support

Congress is advancing an investigation into a growing scandal surrounding IT staffers working for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.), who are accused of stealing sensitive computer equipment from House lawmakers´ offices, according to senior congressional sources who told the Washington Free Beacon the Democratic leader´s refusal to answer questions could "merit resignation." Congressional leaders have now requested a formal briefing by Capitol Police into its investigation of several Pakistani House IT staffers who are accused of stealing sensitive computer equipment and of illegally penetrating congressional networks.
