A Utah man shouted racial slurs at a neighbor boy and then shocked the child’s father with a “stun cane” when he came to his defense.

Mark Olic Porter was charged with third-degree felony aggravated assault, class A misdemeanor assault against a police officer, misdemeanor interference with an arresting officer and intoxication after the Nov. 3 incident at his Draper apartment building, reported KSL-TV.

Witnesses said the 57-year-old Porter was “loudly making racist comments to another neighbor’s child” as the boy rode his scooter in a common area of their apartment complex.

The boy’s father heard Porter tell his son “get out of here, n****r,” and he approached his neighbor and told him not to speak to his child that way.

Porter then reached over a railing and struck the other man with a stun cane.

The man received a shock from the weapon but was able to wrestle it away from Porter, police said.

Officers arrived a short time later and found Porter at his apartment, and he told police the other man had stolen the cane.

Porter, who police said smelled of alcohol, struggled with officers and knocked a body camera off one of their uniforms.

Police said Porter continued to yell at officers and threatened to defecate in the back of a patrol car on his way to jail.

Trump abusing the intelligence community in an attempt to keep them quiet about Russia election hacks: Conservative

Published

on

The New York Times Magazine piece outlining President Donald Trump's battles with the U.S. intelligence community revealed that Russia is continuing to wage its own cyberwar against the world. According to conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot, the devastating report explained the extent to which the president is ignoring the threats to the 2020 election.

“The options faced by the intelligence community during Trump’s presidency have been stark: avoid infuriating the president but compromise the agencies’ ostensible independence, or assert that independence and find yourself replaced with a more sycophantic alternative," wrote Robert Draper in his lengthy investigation into Trump's efforts to politicize international intelligence. According to Boot, the most shocking part of the investigation was that the experts in the intelligence community have been banned from speaking honestly about the Russian attacks.

Published

"Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd is under fire -- once again -- after letting Donald Trump's trade adviser Peter Navarro claim on NBC that Democrats want more Americans to die during the coronavirus pandemic to boost their chances at the polls in November.

Instead of pushing back the NBC host known for his lack of follow-up questions let the comment slide by responding, "I take your point."

Todd's failure to call out the Trump aide for what one Twitter commenter called a "disgusting" comment led to an avalanche of criticism for the MBC political director who recently saw his weekday show cut back to make room for more commentary by colleague Nicolle Wallace.
