I love a parade. And in the small upstate New York town in the Finger Lakes where I grew up there were not enough of them as far as I was concerned. There was the occasional special event: a parade to honor the Scottish racer Malcolm Campbell the summer…
Authorities in North Carolina made grim discoveries on Monday while investigating a man who allegedly shot at police.
"Shots were fired into a Winston-Salem Police Department office on Monday afternoon, a suspect is in custody and a homicide investigation is underway after the suspect's mother and grandmother were found dead in their homes, according to the WSPD and Forsyth County Sheriff's Office," WGHP-TV reports.
The shots were fired at approximately 3:34 p.m. and police traveled to Hanes Park in pursuit.
"The suspect, later identified as 26-year-old William Scott, got out of the vehicle and began firing at officers. Officers returned fire and chased the him on foot through the Hanes Park area," WGHP-TV reports.
The suspect was shot by police and is reportedly in stable condition at an area hospital. No officers were injured and Scott is in custody for attempted murder.
"After Scott was taken into custody, investigators with the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office tell FOX8 they traced the license plate from the vehicle he was in, and it came back to a home in the 1700 block of Curraghmore Road in Clemmons. Investigators responded to the home and found Scott's mother inside. They are investigating her death as a homicide," the station reported. "Scott's grandmother was also found dead in her home in Winston-Salem. Law enforcement officials are investigating her death as homicide as well."
Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) got tongue-tied on Monday attempting to reconcile his opposition to a 9/11-style commission to investigate the January 6th insurrection with his purported support for law enforcement.
CNN's Chris Cuomo noted Stewart's "supposed" support of law enforcement and said, "100 of them hurt — you don't even want to investigate it."
"Chris, that's just nuts for you to say something like 'people you supposedly love,'" Stewart replied, despite his vote against the commission being recorded in the Congressional Record.
"Don't you support the police?" Cuomo asked.
"Of course I do," Stewart claimed.
"Then why don't you want to investigate why 100 of them got beat up?" Cuomo asked.
"So why did you insert the word supposedly?" Stewart said, without answering the question the CNN host had asked.
"Because you won't investigate the event," Cuomo noted. "How are they supposed to think you support them?"
At that point Stewart became tongue-tied as he tried to argue he'd explained himself.
Donald Trump, Jr. posted a clip to Instagram showing a small group at Trump National Golf Club Bedminister gathered to celebrate his father's 75th birthday.
The video showed Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) — although they were the only two members of Congress tagged in the video.
Former football player Herschel Walker was also seen, along with Trump's youngest son.
The video is in sharp contrast to the large crowds Trump enjoyed as president.
