A gun-wielding white man in Memphis, Tennessee was arrested over the weekend after he yelled racial slurs at black children and tried to run them down with his car.

Fox 13 Memphis reports that Tennessee resident Bradly Watkins on Saturday got into an argument with a black family while they were shopping at the Family Dollar, and subsequently pursued them after they left the store.

Witnesses told police that they saw Watkins follow the family in his Ford Crown Victoria while they were walking home. While following the family, Watkins held a gun in one hand while allegedly yelling, “N*gger I’ll kill you!” at them.

At some point, the family decided to split up in an effort to confuse Watkins, but Watkins kept following the children.

“A witness on the scene saw Watkins chase the victims at a high rate of speed, running them off the road,” Fox 13 Memphis reports.

After being confronted by police, Watkins admitted he got into an argument with the victims at the store but omitted any details about chasing them in his car.

He was subsequently charged with two counts of aggravated assault and is expected to be arraigned in court Monday.

On the eve of the Nevada caucuses, former Vice President Joe Biden, who has referred to himself as "middle-class Joe," had a last-minute chance to connect with middle-class Nevada voters before Saturday's caucuses. At a barbecue with burgers, hot dogs, and ice cream sandwiches, attendees that included firefighters and iron workers gathered for what was advertised as a precinct captain training — or to simply hear Biden's pitch. Indeed, many attendees of the barbecue were still undecided a mere day before caucusing.

Trump’s NSC is ignoring intelligence reports and basing policy on handouts of Trump’s tweets: report

Published

on

According to a report from the New York Times, members of the National Security Council under Donald Trump no longer uses their extensive knowledge of international relations, politics, and history to formulate foreign policy security proposals for the president's review -- and are instead using the president's tweets to make policy based upon his desires and social media proclamations.
