Re: Malaysia Airlines Flight Vanishes

MH370 sleuths say they’ve found the crash site of the doomed aircraft in Indian Ocean and call for search to resume

The headline overstates it a bit, the "sleuths" don't say they've found it, they think it's the most probably place and want it searched again.

Re: No place but France, for now.

... It was not terrorism, it was a targeted murder. A French teacher was beheaded for showing his students a cartoon. I don't know of you are being facetious but clearly it was both terrorism and an assassination. Yeah it’s a little of both. The public gruesome beheading pushes it past murder/assas...

Re: TX:The mean streets of Houston

... What is the duty of the police to return firearms to a convicted felon? As I read this article , the police officer who responded to the first incident of the weekend did not confiscate a firearm, he took six rounds Manzano was carrying in his pocket. The police officer found no firearm (which ...

Re: Amy Coney Barrett

... At this point you’re just allowing the Dims to show their ignorance, hate and divisiveness again. ... I believe this was part of Mitch's plan. Let the undecided voters see how sharp she is and how rabidly pathetic the Dem senators are. At the moment there are not enough GOP senators to hold a s...

TX: Pizza Hut gal rousts robbers with mezzaluna

I didn't know the word "mezzaluna" existed before I read this. Three guys with a crowbar invade Pizza Hut to rob it. One guy goes into the kitchen and assaults a female employee who is holding a "mezzaluna-type pizza cutter" (basically a sword-size knife with a big curved belly and a handle on each ...

Re: TX: Won't-be-victim takes robbers' gun and shoots them

It appears the same location was the site of a capital murder during a robbery in May 2020. Police looking for two suspects who left in an SUV. Stories say "retail complex" in the 5200 block of Aldine Mail Route, same description as the incident in the OP. https://www.newsbreak.com/texas/houston/saf...

Re: Amy Coney Barrett

I've been watching in the background of work the last couple days. She has been on point and poised throughout, unflappable and articulate. Really impressive showing. Her handling of Klobuchar was excellent along with several others. News is showing some of the more outrageous soundbites but the ot...

Re: Church shooting in Tarrant County - White Settlement

Try looking at the fifth amendment of the Constitution of the United States. "No person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury..." Which does NOT say that ALL homicides must be presented to the grand jury. It just say...
