The suspect, who has not been identified by West Midlands Police, is being held on one count of suspicion of murder and seven counts of attempted murder stemming from the incidents that unfolded early Sunday morning in which the victims appeared to have been targeted at random. "To think that people going about enjoying their evening out were attacked by what appears to be a lone knifeman is truly dreadful,”...

    A church that served the local community for years found its lease canceled this week. Had the pastor been accused of sexually assaulting someone or embezzling funds? Had the church preached a message of true hate or intolerance? No, the city revoked the church’s lease because the pastor had committed the heinous sin of “liking” tweets exposing Democrat hypocrisy. Among others, he had “liked” a tweet daring to criticize His Holiness Barack Obama for golfing when his wife, Michelle, urged members of the black community to stay home to stop the spread of the coronavirus (yes, this happened). There was...

    a GoFundMe account set up by Candace Owens, titled “Mob rule has no place in America,” which was subsequently shut down after raising $205,000 in a few hours. The conservative activist launched a GoFundMe campaign in support of Michael Dykes, a Birmingham bar owner who called George Floyd a “thug” — Floyd served at least four stints in prison, including a 5-year sentence for aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. The media narrative is that at the age of 46, he was turning his life around, though a toxicology report said he had fentanyl in his system at the time...

    An off-duty Alabama police officer was caught on camera body-slamming a woman in Walmart in an altercation that cops say began because she wasn’t wearing a facemask. Wild video posted by AL.com from the Tuesday incident in the Birmingham big-box store shows the cop placing the woman in handcuffs as she begins to walk away from him. The officer then grabs the woman, lifts her up and drops her to the ground face-first. The Birmingham Police Department said it is investigating the use of force by the officer, who was off-duty and working a side gig as a security guard...

It is expected the temporary site could ultimately accommodate all deaths across the West Midlands, including those not related to the coronavirus, as regional mortuaries may close due to staffing...

    Boadicea may have had her chips on site of McDonald's By Nick Britten (Filed: 25/05/2006) Archaeologists believe they may have found the final battle site for the warrior queen Boadicea - on the site of a McDonald's restaurant. Having spent her life in fierce resistance to one empire - the Romans - her last stand is thought to have been overshadowed by another one, this time corporate. Having found ancient artefacts where new houses and flats are due to be built, experts have now asked the local authority to allow a full excavation of the area. Little is known about...

    UK: Man who used sledgehammer to smash windows of mosques turns out to be Shia targeting Sunnis DEC 1, 2019 3:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER LEAVE A COMMENT How many of these attacks on mosques were presented by the political and media elites as instances of “Islamophobia”? In any case, the Sunni-Shi’ite jihad, having been fought for fourteen centuries in Muslim countries, has now come to diverse Britain. How far gone is Britain? This far gone: the non-Muslims are aware of Sunni-Shia hostility, and fear the consequences. In 2014, an 84-year-old non-Muslim, Kenneth Peters, who lived in a Shi’ite area,...

    Two Muslim men from Texas say American Airlines profiled them and canceled their flight after crew members said they “didn’t feel comfortable” flying with the pair. Abderraoof Alkhawaldeh and Issam Abdallah said they filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Transportation against the Fort Worth-based airline, asking the federal agency to investigate the incident. The men say American Airlines discriminated against them Saturday for appearing Muslim and Middle Eastern during a flight from Birmingham, Alabama, that was headed to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. The pair says flight attendants reported them because a crew member noticed Abdallah flush the toilet...

    Daily demonstrations have been taking place outside Anderton Park Primary School in Birmingham but Friday's was the largest - and angriest - so far. Flyers had been sent around the local community encouraging people to join protests against the school "brainwashing" children that "it's okay to be gay". One man told Sky News he had joined the crowd because "homosexuality is a heinous, horrible thing". Another said homosexuality is "not acceptable for us lot". But the protesters held banners that read "we are not homophobic people". They chanted for the headteacher to quit. The demonstrations are organised by Shakeel Afsar,...

    During a debate in the Alabama House of Representatives over a proposed abortion ban, one Democratic representative made an astonishing remark about why he opposed the bill. “It ought to be a woman’s choice,” said Representative John Rogers of Birmingham. “I’m not about to be a man and tell a woman what to do with her body. She has a right to make her decisions herself.” So far, a fairly standard argument in favor of the right to abortion. But Rogers didn’t stop there. “Some kids are unwanted,” he went on. “So you kill them now or you kill them...
