    Body camera footage from a Texas cop’s perspective shows the officer making kissing noises at two dogs, who wag their tails at the human, before he opens fire and kills one. The second pit bull, tracked down in Cleburne, Texas, was captured without incident by an animal control officer – but the killing of the dog has the city investigating the incident after an uproar in the city of 30,000 people some 30 miles south of Fort Worth. The 22-second clip, uploaded Friday onto YouTube, shows a brown pup and another dark colored dog milling about in a grassy ditch...

    Paramedics who transported the now-confirmed Ebola patient to a Dallas hospital have tested negative for the virus, Dallas County Health and Human Services Director Zachary Thompson said Wednesday. Thompson said friends and family of the patient are still under close observation, but there is no second case. Despite the negative tests, the paramedics also will be closely monitored for symptoms until the known incubation period for the virus has passed. "Given how sick this person could have been during the time frame, we would not be shocked" if there was a second case, Thompson said. "But do we have a...

    The world suddenly seemed a lot smaller when news broke Tuesday that the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S. is being isolated and treated at a Dallas hospital. While the outbreak in West Africa has sickened more than 6,000 people and killed 3,083, it was only a matter of time before the virus hit closer to home, experts said. Dr. Edward Goodman, hospital epidemiologist at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, said he was not surprised that the Ebola virus came to his doorstep, given the number of cases in Africa. There is “plenty of opportunity for people to fly...

    Weeks after Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said three Dallas County facilities would be used to temporarily shelter 2,000 migrant children at the border, he reversed course at a press conference held Thursday afternoon at the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe in downtown Dallas. Said Jenkins, the number of children coming across the border had dropped from 300 a day in June to 150 a day in July, and there are now reports of “bed vacancies” at facilities along the border. The drop in numbers, said Jenkins, has allowed federal officials to reduce the backlog of children needing...

    Then he chatted with them in his office about the border crisis. He told them he wanted to know how Dallas County could help the tens of thousands of Central American children stranded in the U.S. without their parents. The request seemed unusual to the White House officials, Jenkins said. And it surprised Dallas County residents when he announced his plans at the Texas Democratic Convention a week later. But for Jenkins, the events were nothing new. More than most Texas Democrats, he has been an enthusiastic partner of the Obama administration for years. In a state where a politician...

Jenkins says these sites have not been vetted, and “some may drop off the list.” He says others may replace them as well. These three have been “found viable of the dozens of sites we have looked at so far,” he said at the press conference. These...

The town of 8,000 has been swamped with hate mail and angry calls over Bergdahl, whose release after five years of Taliban captivity in Afghanistan has touched off a debate over whether the 28-year-old should be given a hero's welcome or punished as a deserter.

    TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie’s administration wants to increase taxes on electronic cigarettes for the sake of the public’s health, state Treasurer Andrew Sidamon-Eristoff said today. “Our goal is to achieve rough parity with the tax burden on conventional cigarettes. Why? Our main concern is public health,” Sidamon-Eristoff said at an Assembly Budget Committee hearing today. “Contrary to the claims of some users, e-cigarettes have not been shown to be a ‘safe’ alternative to regular cigarettes. Nor are they a proven path to smoking cessation.” Christie’s budget anticipates $35 million in revenue by applying the $2.70 per pack regular state...

    The net for Ohioans is a $174 million tax cut over the next three years. Kasich proposes funding an 8.5 percent income tax-cut for all tax brackets — a $2.2 billion reduction over the next three years — by raising the state’s tax on a pack of cigarettes 60 cents, from $1.25 to $1.85, while also taxing other tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes, at an equivalent rate. That would generate about $850 million during the next three years. Kasich also wants to raise the Commercial Activity Tax on gross receipts for businesses from 0.26 percent to 0.3 percent, a roughly...

Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), who've been seeking to raise awareness about their concerns on and off the Senate floor. Adopting a strategy used in the past year by some Senate Republicans, the Democrats will begin speaking Monday night after a series of votes and continue until about 9 a.m. Tuesday, according to...

A letter sent Monday from Congressman Tom Cole [R-Oklahoma] and Senator Maria Cantwell [D-Washington], tells NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell that the league is on "the wrong side of history" and mentions the league's tax-exempt status. Cantwell chairs the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs. Cole is a member of the Chickasaw Nation. The lawmakers specifically objected to Goodell's Super Bowl week news conference, when he said the Redskins name has been "presented in a...

Since The Dallas Morning News released a damaging exposé about her early life, Davis has been subjected to intense criticism from conservatives and some has taken a disgustingly sexist turn.

Davis’ daughters, Dru and Amber, wrote the letters to “set the record straight” and defend Davis from criticism she has received since published reports have challenged her life’s timeline of events.

    So, in a blazing red state like Texas, what’s an ambitious, take-no-prisoners, left-wing gal to do? Bring out the guns, of course. Last Tuesday, Davis hastily “went country,” announcing her plans to strengthen gun rights by supporting, as the Associated Press reported, “legislation that allows workers to keep their guns in their vehicles at work.” Not bad, right? Well, no. Unfortunately for Wendy, as blogger Bryan Preston pointed out, similar legislation already passed in 2011—something she should know, as she voted for it at the time. (She also, for the record, pushed for gun control measures as a city councilor...
