‘That could happen to anyone’: Drivers terrified after another angry Texas man opens fire on strangers

Published

on

A driver was shot in the back early Sunday morning during a north Texas road rage incident — and other drivers who use the same road are terrorized.

“That could happen to anyone,” said Kimberly Young, who often drives past the scene of the shooting. “I mean it’s sad that we’re living in a day and time where we have to worry about everything.”

Police aren’t sure what led to the overnight shooting in Farmers Branch, but investigators said one driver shot up an SUV with four people inside.

The driver of a dark-colored sedan, possibly a Nissan or Lexus, pulled alongside the SUV in the northbound lanes of Stemmons Service Road near Interstate 35 and opened fire.

One bullet struck the SUV driver in the back, but the three passengers were not injured.

The gunman drove off and remains at large, and the driver was listed in serious condition at a nearby hospital.

Police said no evidence suggests the victims knew the man who opened fire on their vehicle — and other motorists said the random aspect of the shooting was alarming.

“There’s pretty much nothing you can do,” Young said. “I mean, you can’t get in another person’s thought process. Like I said, it’s very heartbreaking.”

Police are examining surveillance video recorded in the area in hopes of identifying the suspect.

At least two other road rage shootings have been reported in the Dallas-Fort Worth area since September, while several others have been reported elsewhere across the state in recent months.

A grand jury declined to indict a Houston-area man in the fatal shooting of a Muslim driver in June. The case was investigated as a possible hate crime, but the gunman’s attorney said the shooting was self-defense.

A number of Democrats running for president are kind of weird about food

Published

on

The New York Times has posted a series of short videos of the Democratic candidates for president answering important questions, like what they propose to do about our broken health care system and just how crooked Donald Trump is. Because campaign coverage demands candidates be allowed “human” (debatable!) moments, the Times also asked the participating candidates about their go-to comfort foods on the campaign trail.

Reparations, concentration camps and racial slurs: Republicans want to turn all discussion of race into pointless culture war debates

Published

on

It wasn’t slavery. They are concentration camps. Racial slurs are not a youthful indiscretion.

This week has seen a series of culture-war debates dominate the discourse only to be derailed by bad faith arguments about semantics.

First, on Monday, nearly all of the right-wing ecosystem was engaged to defend the honor of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School senior and gun rights activists Kyle Kashuv after he revealed that his admission to Harvard had been rescinded. At least one of Kashuv’s classmates in Parkland, Florida, released a number of text messages from him which included racist and misogynistic attacks on fellow students, including the description of black athletes as “niggerjocks.”

Pentagon gives senators classified briefing on UFOs reported by the Navy

Published

on

While it might sound like something out of "The X-Files," Navy pilots have been seeing UFOs, and U.S. Senators now want to know what's happening.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.
