Jersey City mayor: 'Easy to conclude' suspects were going to attack yeshiva school near deli

Jersey City mayor Steven FulopJersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said he believes the shooters in Tuesday's attack were clearly targeting the children at the yeshiva school attached to the kosher supermarket, citing footage of the shooting.

Fulop said it was "easy to conclude" the shooters' intentions were not just to shoot at those in the deli but to continue to the adjacent school — which contained 50 students, according to Fulop — given that footage and the number of weapons the two shooters possessed.


Kentucky's new Democratic governor allows 140,000 ex-felons to vote

Kentucky Gov. Andy BeshearGovernor Andy Beshear of Kentucky signed an executive order on Thursday that will allow people with non-violent felony convictions to vote once they complete their criminal sentences, a major voting rights victory that could allow up to 140,000 people to cast a ballot in the state.

Since 1891, the state has banned anyone with a felony from voting for life, unless their voting rights are restored by the governor, making Kentucky among the strictest jurisdictions when it comes to voting rights for felons in the country, and the world. Currently, about 10% of the state’s population (more than 312,000 people) is disenfranchised because of this policy, according to a 2016 estimate by the Sentencing Project.


Ten former NFL players charged in nationwide fraud case

ex-NFL players charged in national fraudTen former NFL players on Thursday were charged in federal court for their alleged participation in a nationwide fraud on a health care benefits program for retired football players.

The alleged fraud targeted the Gene Upshaw NFL Player Health Reimbursement Account Plan, which was created in 2006 to provide reimbursement for out-of-pocket medical care expenses that were not covered by insurance. The plan covers up to $350,000 in charges for former players, their spouses and dependents.

The Justice Department said the 10 players submitted more than $3.9 million in false and fraudulent claims to the plan, which paid out $3.4 million on those claims between June 2017 and December 2018.


Update, Jersey City shooting: six dead as officials say suspects targeted Jewish grocery

Jersey City Shooting: 6 deadPolice in the New York metropolitan area were on high alert to protect Jewish neighborhoods on Wednesday after two suspects opened fire on a kosher market in Jersey City as part of an hours-long attack that left six people dead, authorities said.

The four-hour police shootout with two suspects armed with high-powered rifles erupted after midday on Tuesday in Jersey City, New Jersey’s second-largest municipality directly across the Hudson River from Manhattan. The six dead included three civilians, one police officer and both suspects, authorities said.

Tuesday’s attack began at a nearby cemetery, where 40-year-old Detective Joseph Seals was killed after approaching the suspects, who had been sitting in a U-Haul van linked to a homicide over the weekend.


FAA Approved 737 MAX After Its Own Analysis Showed Risk of Crashes

FAA approved 737 MAX after finding flawsThe Federal Aviation Administration’s own analysis reportedly showed Boeing 737 MAX jets could have one fatal crash every two or three years—but it decided to allow the planes to fly anyway.

The Wall Street Journal reports that U.S. regulators carried out an analysis showing the MAX could become one of the most accident-prone airliners in decades if its design wasn’t changed. The analysis came in November 2018—after the Lion Air crash in Indonesia, but before the Ethiopia Airlines crash.

It predicted as many as 15 similar catastrophic accidents globally over the life of the MAX fleet, which was expected to span between 30 to 45 years, unless fixes were made to an automated flight-control system.


Swastika, Confederate flags on display near Iowa elementary school 'sickens' school officials

Iowa house diaplays swastika and confederate flag.The resident of a house directly adjacent to a Des Moines elementary school displayed a painting of a swastika Tuesday, sparking outrage on social media and action from Des Moines Public Schools.

William Stark displayed six wooden pallets painted as various flags in front of his home. One was a “German war flag” with the swastika on it. Others included Confederate flags, a “back the blue” flag supporting law enforcement officers, an American flag and a combination U.S.-Confederate flag.

Stark wore a hat with Confederate flags on it Tuesday when he said he hadn’t painted the flags out of prejudice. He’s not racist or a white supremacist, he said, adding that he would paint any flag if asked.


1 Cop Killed, 2 Others Shot in ‘Ambush’ NJ Active Shooter Situation: Official

Jersey City shootingOne police officer was killed and two others were shot during what a law enforcement source described as an "ambush" active shooter situation at a bodega in Jersey City Tuesday, the Hudson County prosecutor said.

One civilian was also shot. That person, along with the two wounded officers, are expected to survive, officials said. The circumstances of the hours-long shootout remain uncertain and the situation, which forced every public school in Jersey City into lockdown mode, is still highly fluid.

One law enforcement source said at least one man was holed up in a bodega with a long gun for hours. That man and another suspect are believed to have been injured in the hours-long shootout, a senior official briefed on the matter says. One suspect was believed to still be in the bodega, while another may have tried to escape to a nearby school.

TVNL Comment: Report is that multiple civilians are dead.  The store is a Kosher super market that also is used as a shul.
