Asad Shah, a much-loved local shopkeeper, brutally stabbed near his store; police arrest Muslim suspect, believe crime was ‘religiously prejudiced’

A Muslim shopkeeper was brutally murdered in Glasgow Thursday, hours after wishing his Christian customers a happy Easter on Facebook, in what police are treating as a religiously motivated crime.

Police arrested a 32-year-old Muslim suspect in connection with the killing.

“A full investigation is under way to establish the full circumstances surrounding the death which is being treated as religiously prejudiced,” police said.

After Congressional Intervention, Death Threat, Ohio State Student Gov’t Rejects BDS Resolution

[quote[The student government at Ohio State University (OSU) on Wednesday rejected a Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) resolution against Israel, The Algemeiner has learned.

The vote on the resolution was different from other recent ones of its nature, however, as it involved intervention from members of Congress and an alleged death threat from a pro-BDS OSU student.

Cailin Pitt, a senior computer science and engineering major, ignited controversy Tuesday, the day before the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) was set to vote, with the following tweet: “Yo, if USG messes this up tomorrow I’m coming for everyone’s life tomorrow. Every one. Every single, blessed life. Every one.

<snipped>

The USG final vote was nine in favor of the BDS resolution, 21 against and 15 abstentions.”[/quote]

Maricopa County election officials writing off voters? You bet

[/quote]For weeks, some Democrats have been sounding the alarm about not enough polling places in Maricopa County for Tuesday's presidential primary.

They warned that reducing the number of polling places from 200 during the 2012 primary election to 60 would mean long lines and discourage people from voting.

They said the fact that some predominantly Latino areas got one or none polling places essentially translates into voter suppression.

Before, it was easy to dismiss their claims as pure conspiracy theories. It was difficult to fathom that Maricopa County election officials would purposely design a plan to keep people, especially minorities, away from the polls.[/quote]

Belgium is this morning believed to be under attack after multiple blasts at Brussels Airport and on the city’s metro system.

At least 11 people are believed to have been killed and dozens more injured following the explosions.

It is believed the American Airlines departure desk was targeted at the airport while a station in the Maelbeek area appears to have been targeted as well.

Brussels Airport blasts: Explosions heard at three Metro stations

There are also reports of shots being fired near the places where the blasts went off and Arabic was shouted beforehand.

Polls: Trump Clobbered by Hillary Among Women, Nonwhites, Millennials

It's time for another installment of "why Trump is likely to be a general election disaster for Republicans based on the available data." We've already examined the controversial billionaire's uniquely terrible standing on electoral fundamentals like favorability and candidate characteristics, as well as his worst-in-the-GOP-field pairing against Hillary Clinton. Now let's look at his performance among key swing demographics, starting with women, who comprise more than half of the electorate:

These voters are part of what you might call Clinton’s coalition of the unwilling. They are the independent and moderate Republican women who don’t like Clinton – some even despise her – but are so repulsed by Trump that they are already preparing to vote for the Democrat they anticipate will be on the ballot in November if that’s what it takes to keep him out of office. Either that, or sit out the election altogether. This loose coalition is large and growing. More Republican women view Trump more negatively than positively, according to Gallup. And in a hypothetical matchup with Clinton, a Washington Post/ABC News poll found this month that Trump loses the women’s vote by 21 points.

Opposition to Trump nearly unites the rising generation. In a hypothetical Clinton v. Trump contest in November, voters under 35 would choose Clinton by a crushing 52%-19%, a preference that crosses demographic lines. Among whites, she'd be backed by nearly 2-1, 45%-26%. Among Hispanics, by more than 4-1, 61%-14%. Among Asian Americans, by 5-1, 60%-11%. Among African Americans, by 13-1, 67%-5%. ...Nearly one in four Republicans would defect to the Democrats if the GOP nominated Trump against Clinton. Just 7% of Democrats would defect to the GOP.
