Bodycam video reveals chaotic scene of deputy fatally shooting Sonya Massey, who called 911 for help

Sonya Massey ducked and apologized to an Illinois sheriff’s deputy seconds before he shot the Black woman three times in her home, with one fatal blow to the head, as seen in body camera video released Monday. An Illinois grand jury indicted former Sangamon County Sheriff’s Deputy Sean Grayson, 30, who is white, last week.

Whistleblower: Snipers Were Stationed on the Roof During Trump Rally But Left Due to the Heat

United States Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle likely walked away from Monday’s House Oversight Committee thinking to herself, to quote Bill the Butcher, that was “the finest beating I ever took.” In a rare showing of bipartisanship, Cheatle is being called on to resign after the assassination attempt on Donald Trump in Butler, Pennsylvania, on July 13. Cheatle dodged questions from lawmakers to the point where members of both parties found her supremely irritating. She also refused to...

And since he has voluntarily dropped out...

Congressional Dems go from panic to wary relief: Is the chaos over?

  Congressional Democrats are cautiously coming to one conclusion: We’re no longer doomed. President Joe Biden’s exit from the presidential race breathed new life in the fight for control of Congress, and the party’s candidates said they feel like they once again have a real chance at winning. Within 24 hours, many of the most vulnerable Democratic incumbents coalesced behind Vice President Kamala Harris as the nominee, eager to project unity after weeks of chaos. Almost no one is...

If Cheatle Won’t Resign, Fire Her

Embattled Secret Service director Kimberly Cheatle was always going to have a rough time explaining to lawmakers how her agency allowed an aspiring assassin to get such an easy shot at Donald Trump at a July 13 rally in Butler, Pa. Somehow, she did worse than expected. In hours of grilling from both Republicans and Democrats, Cheatle stonewalled and further highlighted the stunning incompetence at the top of an agency with a critical zero-fail mission. The failure in Butler was...
