Teen accused of shooting cyclist with shotgun was blowing off steam

AUSTIN (KXAN) — On June 7, when 42-year-old Alonso Solis was bicycling down the 6300 block of East Riverside Drive, he was hit by a random shotgun blast that has caused irreparable damage.

When he was rushed to the hospital, medical staff said pellets entered his brain stem, which could have killed him. But after one surgery and one more coming up, Solis survived, but the road to recovery will be a long one.

“Yeah, I’m pretty down right now, I feel pretty sad, I didn’t do anything to deserve this,” Solis said.

Solis said he was biking to the store just before midnight when he felt as though he was having a heart attack. He woke up in the hospital nearly two days later, and doesn’t remember anything about how he got the pellet wounds to his head, neck, and back.

They laughed after video of my dying son was shown in court, says dad of Penn State teen


BELLEFONTE, Pa. - The father of the New Jersey teen who died after a hazing at a Penn State fraternity said he was highly offended to see defendants and their families act like they were at a fraternity get-together following Monday's preliminary hearing.

"Following the hearing, most, but not all, of the fraternity brothers and their families got together, laughed, patted each other on the back and hugged as if this was just another fraternity get-together," James Piazza, father of Timothy Piazza, said on Tuesday. "We are highly offended by the insensitivity displayed given the severity of the crimes committed and ultimate outcome."

It was a long and emotional day as the hearing was held for 16 of 18 Penn State fraternity brothers accused in the hazing death of Timothy, 19, of Readington Township. Three hours of video taken from surveillance footage inside the Beta Theta Pi fraternity house was also shown publicly for the first time during the hearing.

Magisterial District Judge Allen Sinclair, after almost 10 hours on Monday, ordered a continuance to be held later this summer to allow defense attorneys a chance to cross-examine State College Police Det. David Scicchitano, the only person who testified.


Grenfell Tower:Tory minister declined to include sprinklers in fire safety rules

The former Conservative housing minister warned against increasing fire safety regulations to include sprinklers because it could discourage house building.

As the death toll from the Grenfell Tower blaze rose to 12, it emerged Brandon Lewis, who was recently promoted to immigration minister, declined in 2014 to force building developers to fit sprinklers.

A sprinkler system would have “undoubtedly” saved lives at the Grenfell Tower blaze, the managing director of the Fire Protection Association told The Independent.



Victory for Standing Rock Sioux Tribe-Court Finds Approval of Dakota Access Pipeline Violated Law

Victory for Standing Rock Sioux Tribe-Court Finds Approval of Dakota Access Pipeline Violated Law

Ruling: Trump administration shortcut environmental review; Court seeks additional briefing on whether to shut down pipeline
Washington, D.C. —

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe won a significant victory today in its fight to protect the Tribe’s drinking water and ancestral lands from the Dakota Access pipeline.

A federal judge ruled that the federal permits authorizing the pipeline to cross the Missouri River just upstream of the Standing Rock reservation, which were hastily issued by the Trump administration just days after the inauguration, violated the law in certain critical respects.

In a 91-page decision, Judge James Boasberg wrote, “the Court agrees that [the Corps] did not adequately consider the impacts of an oil spill on fishing rights, hunting rights, or environmental justice, or the degree to which the pipeline’s effects are likely to be highly controversial.” The Court did not determine whether pipeline operations should be shut off and has requested additional briefing on the subject and a status conference next week.


Morford: Thou shalt not shut down Kamala Harris

by Mark Morford

Whether she likes it or not, whether she’s fully ready or willing to be promoted in this way or not, CA's own junior senator (and former attorney general) Kamala Harris is fast becoming one of the fiery, go-to saviors of the Left, a fast-rising star increasingly adept at taking on, with a sly grin and without so much as a flinch, the old white male loutishness of Trump’s toxic regime.

And it’s something to behold. Witness her questioning – and apparently easily flustering – poor, racist elf Jeff “I don’t recall” Sessions, the U.S. Attorney General and all-around incoherent Trump lackey, merely by asking him a couple simple, pointed questions – questioned pointed enough to earn her a scowling reprimand/shushing by not one, but two old white GOP males, Sen. Burr and Sen. McCain, before she could get a full answer from baffled little Beauregard.

It wasn’t so much the questioning that (again) proves Harris’ mettle – though that was certainly on fantastic display. It was what followed. Within moments of Burr and McCain shutting her down, her staff pounced.
