Hippos are surprisingly one of the most dangerous/aggressive animals. I can imagine its even worse in environments they are not meant for. Like the python crisis in Florida.

Fascinating video of city cops trying to serve the local sheriffs a search warrant for 2 of their phones
The sheriffs are furious refusing to release their phones, questioning the document and calling their lawyers
It gets to the point that the police have to lock down the building and threaten arrest because the sheriffs refuse to honor the warrant
Eventually the police get the phones but the sheriffs did not make it easy



Sheriff arrested

According to a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll, 44 percent of Republicans believe that Bill Gates is plotting to use a mass COVID-19 vaccination campaign as a pretext to implant microchips in billions of people and monitor their movements — a widely debunked conspiracy theory with no basis in fact.

WTF
Are the conservatives on this board part of that dumb 44%
I'm amazed by that number
That's like a fifth of the country
Talk about stupid

Apparently Trump mentioned that conspiracy during his campaign speech given in Ypsilanti yesterday.

Another attack on U.S. military bases in Texas.

The shooter was Islamic"

" I love the Muhajadeed, I am not one of them, but my sword is on the necks of those who stab them" ....

Anyway he is dead now...

The miltiary and government has no problem declaring this terrorism, but is hesitating to call it Islamic based terror (hopefully Trump does not).

The thing most frightening about Islam is the number of people it can influence who are well educated and otherwise good citizens (look at all the 9/11 hijackers)....


"Local media reported that Alsahli had no criminal record, although, in August, he had received a traffic ticket for failure to yield. The ticket was dismissed in January after he took a driver’s safety course."

"A 20-year-old college student, Adam Alsahli, was formally named by the FBI on Friday as the gunman who attempted to carry out an assault on Thursday at a US Navy base in Texas.

Alsahli failed to gain entry onto the base, but an ensuing exchange of gunfire left him dead, while a sailor, a member of the base security force, was lightly wounded. "

I'm very happy the assailant is dead. That is good news. Now I don't have to hear him and the fundamental Islamic Jihad crap that he would be spewing.
