The Uvalde school board agreed Wednesday to fire Pete Arredondo, the school district police chief broadly criticized for his response to the deadliest school shooting in Texas history, in a vote that came shortly after he asked to be taken off of suspension and receive backpay. Chief Pete Arredondo got fired over the shooting response after he calls the vote a “public lynching”. Arredondo, widely blamed for law enforcement’s delayed response in confronting the gunman who killed 21 people at Robb Elementary, made the request for reinstatement through his attorney, George E. Hyde. The meeting came exactly three months after a gunman killed 19 students and two teachers at the school.
There have been 509 people on the FBI’s most wanted list and 478 of those have been caught!
Siracha has a rooster on the bottle because the guy that created Siracha was born in 1945! Which was the year of the rooster?
91-year-old Warren Buffet is worth approximately 204.4 Billion dollars.
(It is 4 or 5 billion for an NFL franchise, keep that in mind! ) he has made more than 90% of that by his 50th birthday.
You Wizard of Oz fans. This 1939 film had a cowardly lion in the movie, and his costume was made of real lion skin! Can you think about them doing that now? That is frowned upon nowadays. Imagine some crazy person running on the set and straight throwing red paint.
Disney passed on the Little Mermaid because it conflicted with another movie they were planning the sequel of the movie Splash so Splash 2 (Tom Hanks Eugene Levy, John Candy, Daryl Hannah). In the end they changed their mind and went with the Little Mermaid (back in 1989).
Harbor gateway neighborhood had one of those ghetto street takeovers on August 15 morning. Things got out of control out of the usual, with these idiots doing donuts, burnouts, and races. This time a mob of people ransacked the 7th store on the corner of West El Segundo and South Figueroa. They knocked over shelves, of chips and candy and opened up snacks, and left litter all over the store. (Maybe they are late to get to their jobs…OH WAIT!) They littered the parking lot and destroyed the cash register, no word if they got any cash. Police are investigating, at this point it is very unclear if arrests have been made. (So cool right?)
Have you seen the mayhem that is been occurring along the US and Mexico border? Specifically, in the Tijuana region, 24 vehicles were burned within a span of 8 hours along Baja California.
Thousands of National Guard soldiers patrolled the streets of Tijuana Saturday after armed and hooded criminals effectively shut down the city the night before by forcing passengers off public transportation across the state and setting taxis ablaze.
At least 24 vehicles were charred across Baja California, including 15 in Tijuana. Some were public transportation vehicles while others were privately owned, local authorities said. In some cases, the burned vehicles were left to block roadways.
Not only was Tijuana under attack but so was Ciudad Juarez. Hundreds of Mexican soldiers were sent to the border city of Juarez Friday after a prison face-off between members of two rival cartels caused a riot and shootouts that killed 11 people, most of them civilians, authorities said.
Los Chapos, members of the infamous Sinaloa Cartel formerly led by Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, and local group Los Mexicles clashed in a prison Thursday afternoon, Deputy Security Minister Ricardo Mejia said.
Vehicle fires were also reported in Mexicali, Rosarito Beach, Tecate and Ensenada.
Meanwhile, messages began circulating on social media, purportedly from the Cártel Jalisco Nueva Generación, declaring that it was implementing a curfew in Tijuana. The posts told residents that they should go home or risk being attacked.
The U.S. Consul General in Tijuana advised Americans to seek shelter and to avoid traveling to the city. Many people shuttered their business or left the Xolos soccer game early Friday night. There were no reports of injuries.
This is how easily organized criminals can take over their very own military forces. How much more panic and terror do these civilians have to live with on both sides of the boarders?
