A 39-year-old Milwaukee man has been charged with three counts of homicide for tracking down and shooting three neighbors after confronting one over the fact that he didn’t speak English, the Journal-Sentinel reports.

According to police, Dan J. Popp shot and killed Jesus R. Manso-Perez, 40; Phia Vue, 36; and Mai K. Vue, 32  after first trying to lure Manso-Perez to his place with an offer of beer.

According to police officials, Popp stopped Manso-Perez and his son as they walked by his apartment on the way to the laundry room. After refusing the offer of beer, Popp asked where they were from and, upon learning they came from Puerto Rico, replied, “Oh, that’s why you don’t speak English. You’re Puerto Rican.”

According to Manso-Perez’s son, they were returning to their own apartment when they encountered Popp on the stairs landing pointing a rifle at them.

“You guys got to go,” Popp reportedly said before shooting Mans-Perez in the head and then firing at — and missing — his son.

Police state that Popp then proceeded to the Vue’s apartment where he kicked down the door and shot Phia and Mai Vue as they huddled with their four children.

Responding police officers were directed to the apartment by several of the children who escaped, and Popp surrendered to police after dropping his weapon when ordered to so.

According to police, two weapons were recovered and that Popp does not have a previous criminal record. Police state that a medical emergency call was received from Popp’s residence the day before the triple murder, but provided no further details.

Popp remains in  Milwaukee County Jail and is slated for a mental competency examine to see if he understands the charges and can aid in his own defense.

A small group of protesters came to one of Lindsey Graham's latest campaign events, and they were quickly attacked by supporters of President Donald Trump chanting "four more years."

Graham's event seemed to have more support for Trump than for Graham at his own weekend event. It's unknown why the Trump supporters were not chanting for Graham.

"Get the hell out!" one Trump supporter can be heard shouting. He and another older man were seen wagging their fingers

At least one Graham protester could be seen holding up a sign with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The South Carolina senator is fighting for his political career and many other Republicans struggling to hold onto their seats. Graham is now being confronted with past comments he made saying that no president, regardless of the party, should make a Supreme Court pick right before his or her election.

Black man takes N-word spewing racist to school — and makes him promise to never do it again

Published

on

When a racist White guy at a marina shouted out the N-word at a group of Black men, he probably didn't count on their response being a history lesson, but that's precisely what happened.

While President Donald Trump is claiming that Black community members are beating and killing White racists and responding with general violence, the two men showed a different reality.

"What made you say it?" the men asked.

The white guy shrugged.

"You that racist?" one of the men asks.

"Uh, no, I--" the White guy tried to answer.

"Then why would you call us a n*gger?" one of the men asks.

Lamar Alexander refuses to stand against Trump Supreme Court choice

Published

on

Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) is an outgoing Senator but he is firmly supporting President Donald Trump's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In a statement released Sunday, Alexander claimed that the so-called "McConnell Rule" doesn't count because the Senate and the White House is ruled by Republicans. The "McConnell Rule" was never a rule until McConnell decided he didn't want former President Barack Obama to nominate another justice when conservative Justice Antonin Scalia died suddenly.

"Senator McConnell is only doing what Democrat leaders have said they would do if the shoe were on the other foot," said Alexander.
