Police: Driver admitted to intentionally killing teen at North Dakota street dance after political dispute

Court papers say 41-year-old Shannon Brandt confessed to a 911 dispatcher and police that he killed 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson due to a political dispute.

McHENRY, N.D. — According to court papers, it was not an accident but apparently a politically motivated attack.

The fatal vehicle-pedestrian incident happened early Sunday morning, Sept. 18, in McHenry, North Dakota, about 120 miles northwest of Fargo and 54 miles north of Jamestown.

Prosecutors allege moments before he was killed, 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson called his mom to come rescue him because 41-year-old Shannon Brandt was chasing him in the city of McHenry, where the street dance had just wrapped up.

By the time she could get there, her son was dead.

Brandt was officially charged Monday with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a deadly accident.

WASHINGTON, Sept 21 (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department can resume reviewing classified records seized by the FBI from former President Donald Trump's Florida home pending appeal, a federal appellate court ruled on Wednesday, giving a boost to the criminal investigation into whether the records were mishandled or compromised.

The Atlanta-based 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted a request by federal prosecutors to block U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon's stay barring them from using the classified documents in their probe until an independent arbiter, called a special master, vets the materials to weed out any that could be deemed privileged and withheld from investigators.

The appeals court also said it would agree to reverse a portion of the lower court's order that required the government to hand over records with classification markings for the special master's review.

‘The environment is upside down’: Why Dems are winning the culture wars

It’s already the consensus that abortion is going to be a good issue for Democrats in November.

What’s only now becoming clear — as Republicans scrub their campaign websites of prior positions on abortion and labor to turn the focus of the midterms back to President Joe Biden and the economy — is just how much the issue is altering the GOP’s standard playbook.

For the first time in years, Republican and Democratic political professionals are preparing for a general election campaign in which Democrats — not Republicans — may be winning the culture wars, a wholesale reversal of the traditional political landscape that is poised to reshape the midterms and the run-up to 2024.

“The environment is upside down,” said Michael Brodkorb, a former deputy chair of the Minnesota Republican Party. “The intensity has been reversed.”

It isn’t just abortion. Less than 20 years after conservatives used ballot measures against same-sex marriage to boost voter turnout in 11 states, public sentiment has shifted on the issue so dramatically that Democrats are poised to force a vote on legislation to protect same-sex marriage to try to damage Republican candidates. Following the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, Democrats from Georgia and Wisconsin to Illinois and California are running ads supporting gun restrictions, once viewed as a liability for the left, while openly engaging Republicans on crime.

Republican Supreme Court demands you don't question their legitimacy after they destroyed it

No.1092938 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Maybe stealing 2 supreme court seats and engaging in unprecedented judicial activism on behalf of your political party might have people start saying the court is corrupt and judicial reform is badly needed Johnny.
The fact Roberts has the audacity to say they can't be questioned and are kings who can rule by decree is mind numbing, but on brand for Republicans.

In a speech in Colorado on Friday, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts fired back at critics of the court that has come under fire for judicial activism with little regard for history and legal precedent.

Following a session that saw the 6-3 conservative court throw out the 50-year-old Roe v. Wade ruling that protected a woman's right to make their own reproductive rights decisions, the court is set to convene again on the first Monday of October under a cloud and fears of more extremist opinions.

According to the Washington Post, Roberts -- who has been accused of losing control of the so-called "Roberts Court" -- told the assembled audience made up of attorneys and judges, "The court has always decided controversial cases and decisions always have been subject to intense criticism and that is entirely appropriate."

Continuing in that vein, he fired back at the court's critics.

“You don’t want the political branches telling you what the law is. And you don’t want public opinion to be the guide of what the appropriate decision is,” he explained “Yes, all of our opinions are open to criticism. In fact, our members do a great job of criticizing some opinions from time to time. But simply because people disagree with an opinion is not a basis for criticizing the legitimacy of the court.”

> 1
What happened?

>On September 20, Russia’s State Duma unanimously passed a bill that would amend the country’s Criminal Code. The legislation adds new articles establishing penalties for “crimes against military service” if they are committed during mobilization, during wartime, or under martial law.

>2
>What are ‘crimes against military service?’

>"Crimes against military service" are defined as “crimes against the established order of conducting military service committed by soldiers undergoing military service as a conscript or under contract, as well as citizens belonging to the reserve forces as they undergo their military training.”

>And the penalties for them are going to get harsher?

>Yes — if the crimes are committed:

> During mobilization;
>During martial law;
>At wartime;
> In the conditions of an armed conflict;
> In the conditions of military hostilities.

>All of the above will now be considered “aggravating circumstances.” In the last two scenarios listed above, the new, harsher rules can be applied even in the absence of a declaration of war or mobilization (for example, during a “special military operation”).

>4
>How much more severe will the penalties be?

>The prison sentences for “crimes against military service” committed in the circumstances listed above will be significantly higher than for the same crimes committed during peacetime.

>Using violence against one’s superior, for example, is punishable by up to five years in prison during peacetime; during mobilization or “in the conditions of military hostilities,” however, it will be punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

>The harsher penalties won’t apply to certain crimes like “hazing,” insulting a fellow soldier, or abandoning a sinking warship.
