The Arlington Police officer, who shot and killed 19-year-old college student Christian Taylor at a car dealership, has been fired from the department.
According to NBC News, the police chief announced that Officer Brad Miller was fired for “exercising poor judgment” during a press conference earlier today.
It was reported that Miller told law enforcements that he feared for his safety, but police have confirmed that he did not make physical contact with Taylor. Police Chief Will Johnson told the press:
“This fear and feeling of isolation was the result of his poor decision to enter the building without assistance and without an arrest plan.”
Police sources reported that Christian Taylor allegedly kicked in the windshield of a Ford Mustang and then crashed his Jeep into a showroom door. Officer Miller reportedly entered the dealership on his own, without informing the other officers at the time, leading to their confrontation. Chief…

A an interracial Mississippi couple was arrested over the weekend at an airport, and charged with the intention to join ISIS, reports CNN. Authorities accused Muhammad Oda Dakhlalla and Jaelyn Delshaun Young of planning to travel to Syria to join the notorious terrorist organization.
According to CNN the couple planned to get married so they could travel without suspicion, but incriminated themselves on social media, while communicating with two FBI employees over the past few months. Young wrote that she married Dakhlalla in June, and authorities alleged that their cover story was that they planned to fly to Turkey for a honeymoon before traveling to Syria.
“I am good with computers, education and media,” Dakhlalla allegedly wrote in one message to an agent. “What could I contribute?”
According to other reports, Young praised the actions of the Chattanooga, Tenn., shooter, Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, who…

“What if, I mean, there are times, I’m sure, someone has, in the history of this land, used a cigarette against a police officer,” Hasselbeck said during an interview with former New York Police Department officer John Rafferty. “Maybe chucked it at him — pushed it at him?”
Hasselbeck’s comment comes after she and Rafferty analyzed the arrest from start to end. Rafferty even makes a point to admit Officer Enciniacrossed the line and began to take the situation personal when he pulled Bland out of her vehicle.
It was only after Hasselbeck tried to deliberately make a point to justify Encinia’s aggressive arrest that Rafferty agreed he could’ve felt threatened…

Donald Trump?s accession to the GOP presidential candidacy throne has been swift, but not without Trump-isms that read as glaring red flags not only in his presidential candidacy, but in his general life view.
Take, for instance, Trump?s inflammatory comment regarding how he envisions Mexican border control should be improved, labeling Mexicans as rapists and criminals. His reasoning?
“I mean somebody’s doing it!… Who’s doing the raping?”
Donald Trump and his PR team have a narrow definition of rape, though—one that excludes Trump, doesn?t fully encompass the meaning of the term, and trivializes victims.
The Daily Beastpublished an article last night critiquing Trump?s assertion regarding people of Mexican descent in light of the, until now, brushed-over skeleton in his own closet. The publication was careful in choosing its headline: ?Ex-Wife: Donald Trump Made Me Feel ‘Violated’ During Sex.?
