Spilled beer leads to shooting death at Illinois convenience store

Published

on

A dispute over a dropped and spilled can of beer turned deadly Saturday at a gas station convenience store in Sauget, Illinois.

The New York Daily News reported that 26-year-old Oscar C. Carbajal was shot dead after a can of beer from a 12-pack he was purchasing with friends fell to the ground and sprayed a man who was asking Carbajal to give him one of the cans.

The altercation took place around 5:20 a.m., according to Sauget Police Chief Patrick Delaney, who told the Daily News that the suspect is still on the loose.

Carbajal and two friends were waiting in line with the 12-pack at the gas station convenience store’s late night window when the assailant — who has been described as a black male driving a dark blue Ford Fusion — began to pester them, asking for a can from the pack.

However, when a can fell from the pack and came open, spraying the man’s shoe and lower leg, he stalked off.

Security footage showed the man returning his vehicle, then confronting Carabajal and his friends again before pulling a gun and firing, killing Carabajal.

“Between a spilled beer and him being denied getting a beer, I don’t know what else would have set him off,” said Delaney of the suspect. “I know people have been killed for less, but it just doesn’t make any sense.”

‘People died in Ukraine’: Democrat lectures Doug Collins for Trump’s abuse of power costing lives

Published

on

During Thursday's impeachment hearing, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) laid bare the human cost of President Donald Trump's decision to withhold military aid from Ukraine to force them to hunt for dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden's family — something that ranking member Doug Collins (R-GA) spent the previous day denying.

"In my colleague's efforts to defend this president, you want him to be someone he's not. You want him to be someone he is telling you he is not," said Swalwell. "You're trying to defend the call in so many different ways, and he's saying, guys, it was a perfect call. He's not who you want him to be. And let me tell you how selfish his acts were. And ranking member Collins, you can deny this as much as you want. People died in Ukraine at the hands of Russia," said Swalwell. "In Ukraine, since September 2018 when it was voted on by Congress, was counting on our support. One year passed and people died. And you may not want to think about that, it may be hard for you to think about that, but they died when the selfish, selfish president withheld the aid for his own personal gain."

Matt Gaetz insists he wasn’t paying ‘much attention’ as he got burned during hearing – but video shows otherwise

Published

on

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) lied when he was speaking to CNN's Manu Raju that he wasn't paying much attention when Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) explained that members with DUIs probably shouldn't be attacking someone for drug usage.

“I didn’t pay much attention to it ...I’m focused on the president .. I don’t think Americans are hanging on a traffic incident I had a decade ago,” Gaetz told Raju.

It wasn't factually accurate as videos show Gaetz paying quite a bit of attention and seemingly upset.
