Secretary of the Army reminds soldiers that they swore an oath to uphold the Constitution — all of it
The secretary of the U.S. Army was forced to come out and remind soldiers that even if they're called up supplement police forces in cities around the U.S. that they still must abide by their oath to uphold the Constitution.
In a Twitter statement Thursday, Ryan McCarthy posted a video of himself speaking to troops saying that peaceful protests are fine and that the soldiers are there to "protect that ideal."
"Every Soldier and Department of the Army Civilian swears an oath to support and defend the Constitution. That includes the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances," he said in the tweet.
Lindsey Graham lashes out at Mattis for criticizing Trump — and suggests he’s been duped by the ‘liberal media’
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Thursday lashed out at Gen. James Mattis, President Donald Trump's former Defense secretary.
Writing an op-ed in The Atlantic on Wednesday, the Mattis highlighted the president's tendency toward fascism and authoritarianism. It prompted Graham to tell the general he doesn't know what he's talking about.
"To General Mattis, I think you're missing something here, my friend. You're missing the fact that the liberal media has taken every event in the last three-and-a-half years and laid it at the president's feet," Graham said on Fox News, according to Axios.
California cop shoots through his own windshield to kill suspect on his knees — after mistaking his hammer for a gun
A police shooting in the California city of Vallejo has a community on edge, according to a report from NBC Bay Area.
Sean Monterrosa, 22, was kneeling when a Vallejo police officer shot and killed him. The shooting happened while police were trying to stop looters from invading a local Walmart.
"This individual appeared to be running toward the black sedan, but suddenly stopped, taking a kneeling position, and placing his hands above his waist, revealing what appeared to be the butt of a handgun," Vallejo Police Chief Shawny Williams said.
But Monterrosa was carrying a hammer, not a gun.
