The victims met on Craigslist and agreed to meet at a local grocery store to complete a gun purchase. However, the family thought that Moreland and Smith were shooting at them.

“When [Moreland and Smith] entered the vehicle, the white men said they heard a gun being racked,” said Sgt. Jeremy Lewis of the Moore Police Department. “So one of them fired four rounds.”

Justice Writer Shuan King refered to the killing as a modern day lynching.

Moreland was a father and his grandmother said he was a phenomenal dad.
“Very, very good daddy. He took care of his little boy and the boy is going to be lost without his daddy,” she said.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
