    New York's top terrorism official says there's evidence that members of anarchist groups from outside the city intentionally planned to incite violence at protests calling for justice in the death of George Floyd. Deputy Commissioner for Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller said there is a high level of confidence within the NYPD that these unnamed groups had organized scouts, medics, and supply routes of rocks, bottles and accelerants for breakaway groups to commit vandalism and violence. There are strong indicators they planned for violence in advance using at times encrypted communications, he said. One out of every seven arrests, of...

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Democrats will try their first large-scale virtual convention starting Monday in Texas as plans for a traditional national convention this summer remain unsettled because of the coronavirus. Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are among the scheduled speakers in Texas. Democrats in Minnesota had also planned on holding their state convention online this weekend but postponed amid unrest over the death of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who died after a white Minneapolis police officer used his knee to pin Floyd’s neck down for several minutes as Floyd pleaded for air and eventually stopped...

In addition, HPD Police Chief Art Acevedo said his entire department is ready, with all officers alternating 12 hour shifts.

    Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall found herself in the midst of a ‘hail’ of bricks as the protest continued Friday night. It’s dangerous for both and it’s unnecessary. We’re working so hard. We’re all working hard to build partnerships in this community and it tears them down from both sides. We have to do better. We have to come together now and peacefully discuss. We are all empathetic. Our hearts go out to George Floyd’s family. Chief’s across the country have stood up about what has happened. The answer is not to then attack the Dallas Police Department. That is...

    SENATOR Ted Cruz is calling for a criminal investigation into Twitter for potentially "violating US sanctions against Iran." Cruz asked for the investigation in a letter to the Justice and Treasury departments on Friday. In February, Cruz wrote a letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to ask him to stop providing social media services to Supreme Leader of Iran Ali Khamenei and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif. Now, the senator is calling on Attorney General William Barr and Secretary Steve Mnuchin to "take action." In Friday's letter, Cruz wrote: "I believe that the primary goal of (the International Emergency Economic...

Chief Justice Nathan Hecht, along with six other justices, ruled that contracting a disease is not a physical condition or disability, and if the criteria were expanded, the disability category would be rendered useless, the Houston Chronicle reported.

    A Texas tavern said this week it will not serve customers who wear coronavirus protective face masks, according to a report. The Liberty Tree Tavern, located in Elgin -- about 25 miles east of Austin -- posted a sign that read: “Due to our concern for customers, if they FEEL (not think), that they need to wear a mask, they should stay home until they FEEL that it’s safe to be in public without one. Sorry, No Mask Allowed.” The city has a population of around 10,000 residents, according to the 2018 census. Only 52 residents have tested positive for...

    Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced Thursday that outdoor stadiums will be allowed to open to fans next month at limited capacity for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic began. While many state leaders have discussed the possibility of reopening stadiums to professional sports teams, most have said welcoming fans inside to watch competitions will not be possible until the country achieves better containment of the virus. Abbott signed the proclamation as an expansion of another he announced last week that approved more businesses and services to reopen. While the original proclamation last Friday allowed professional sports teams to resume...
