Published

On Tuesday, police in Englewood, New Jersey arrested 53-year-old Larry Dungey for the second time in four days for pulling a knife in arguments over Dungey’s dogs. According to NJ.com, Dungey had only been home from jail for two days after his last arrest when police were summoned to his home for a disturbance involving a weapon.

“I really can’t remember someone getting arrested twice, within days of each other, over dogs, and both times involving an assault with a knife,” said Detective Captain Tim Torell of the Englewood Police Department. “This is one for the books.”

Last Thursday night, Dungey was walking his dogs when they jumped on a neighbor, frightening the man and starting a dispute in which Dungey stabbed the neighbor in the hand with a six inch knife. Dungey, who has previously served time for a burglary conviction, was taken into custody and charged with second-degree aggravated assault, possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.

Monday evening, Dungey and his roommate got into an argument about Dungey’s dogs defecating in their house. The dispute quickly escalated and Dungey grabbed a knife and threatened to stab the man before fleeing.

The roommate called police, who arrested Dungey when he returned home at 1:00 a.m. Tuesday and took him back to the Bergen County Jail, where he was charged with domestic violence assault by menace and more counts of weapons possession.

Dungey is currently being held on $81,500 bond.

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow's opening segment on Friday focused on a positive story of political pressure stopping one of the Trump administration's attacks on the U.S. Postal Service.

Maddow reported how NBC Montana reporter Maritsa Georgiou had doggedly reported on the removal of postal boxes in Missoula, where she is based. Missoula has been a long-time Democratic Party stronghold.

Montana has a competitive U.S. Senate election in 2020, with Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock challenging first-term Republican Sen. Steve Daines.

As Georgiou chased the story, she learned there were also plans to remove boxes in the battleground of Billings. And more planned for the blue town of Bozeman. And other towns.

Chad Wolf’s authority is ‘illegitimate’: Hispanic Caucus chairman demands DHS chief ‘resign in disgrace’

Published

Immigrant rights groups and Texas Democrats are urging a review on the legality of Trump administration immigration policies after a government watchdog found two of the White House’s top immigration officials are not legally eligible to serve in their respective positions.

The Government Accountability Office on Friday determined that Chad Wolf, acting Department of Homeland Security secretary, and Ken Cuccinelli, a senior official performing deputy secretary duties, aren’t legally qualified to hold those posts.

United We Dream, an advocacy group pushing for immigration reform, said the GAO’s conclusion calls into question the latest guidance from the DHS on the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program that was initiated in 2012.
