A Las Vegas nail salon worker was killed while trying to stop a customer from running out on a manicure without paying.

The customer, who has not been identified, attempted to pay $35 for the service Saturday afternoon but her credit card was declined, and she told workers she was getting another payment from her car, reported KVVU-TV.

Instead, the woman drove away in a rental car, and Nhu “Annie” Nguyen and her partner Sonny Chung tried to stop her.

Nguyen tried to hold onto the frame of the rear windshield, which was broken out, and she was dragged nearly 50 feet and killed.

“She kept pushing the gas, and my wife fell off, and she kept pushing more, and she dragged her from here to over there,” Chung told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

He said Nguyen would have been able to avoid the car’s path if the driver had braked even once.

“I tried to hold the car back, but I’m not Superman,” Chung said. “She ran off for $35 and killed my wife — $35 to run my wife over.”

Nguyen was a Vietnam refugee who had three adult daughters and two young grandchildren, who had been visiting her for the holidays.

Police found the rented Chevrolet Camaro parked at a nearby apartment complex, but the vehicle had been reported stolen about three weeks before.

The suspect remains at large.

Nguyen and Chung co-owned the salon, where they often worked up to 15 hours a day, friends said.

‘The election wasn’t stolen — he blew it’: Michigan Republican says Trump ‘did everything possible to lose’

Published

President Donald Trump insists the election was stolen from him in Michigan, but Republicans there haven't been willing to indulge his fantasy.

The president has zeroed in on the state, which he narrowly won in 2016, in his effort to overturn his election loss to Joe Biden by claiming widespread fraud and pressuring legislators to overrule the will of the voters, but few Republicans are buying in, reported Politico.

“We must not attempt to exercise power we simply don’t have,” said Aaron Van Langevelde, who sits on Michigan’s board of state canvassers, which was statutorily obligated to certify the election win by Joe Biden. “As John Adams once said, 'We are a government of laws, not men.' This board needs to adhere to that principle here today. This board must do its part to uphold the rule of law and comply with our legal duty to certify this election.”

Trump’s efforts to overturn the election are clumsy and petulant – but it’s still treason: historian

Published

on

We are now witnesses to the most dangerous act of selfishness from the King of the Self. Trump knows the evidence for any form of election fraud is silly fantasy. His electoral deficits are beyond challenge--74 Electoral College votes and more than 5 million popular votes. Yet he repeats his denunciations of American elections, the bedrock of any democracy, that began when he was only a candidate. In October 2016, he called the election “one big, ugly lie”.

His disastrous character flaws are obvious to everyone. We, and here I mean all those who care about the real world around us, must now go beyond psychological analysis to political clarity. Trump is a traitor.
