FEMA Insists Containers Sitting In San Juan Port Aren't Filled With Aid

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló told CBS just two days ago that thousands of shipping containers with food, water and medicine are just sitting in the port of San Juan not being distributed. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is disputing those claims.

On Friday morning, Deputy FEMA Administrator Daniel Kaniewski told CNN that the containers in the San Juan port likely hold retail goods and not hurricane relief supplies.

“There are millions of meals and millions of liters of water that are on the island right now that are in the process of being distributed,” Kaniewski said during a live interview. “Now, we’ve seen video images of cargo containers sitting in the port. I can assure you that those are not FEMA containers. Those are retail goods that have probably been sitting there for days or weeks.”

“FEMA containers and commodities are going and have been received at regional distribution centers,” Kaniewski continued. “Those regional distribution centers then distribute it to the 78 municipalities” that make up Puerto Rico.

2 men face murder charges over deaths of infant sons


SHALIMAR, Fla. — Two Florida men face murder charges in the deaths of their infant children.

According to a News Herald report , State Attorney Bill Eddins announced Tuesday that an Okaloosa County grand jury indicted 20-year-old Jared Leevan Johnson for first-degree felony murder.

Authorities said Johnson’s 5-month-old son died a day after being left alone at Johnson’s home in Shalimar in November 2016. An autopsy found the infant suffered multiple blunt impact injuries.

Separately, 22-year-old Dekari Rashard Castell of Orlando was arrested Monday on charges of first-degree felony murder and aggravated child abuse.

Detroit again is number 1. Good job Lefty!!!

FBI: Detroit again the most violent city in America. Police chief disagrees

The jump gave the Motor City the designation of No. 1 on the list of most violent cities in the U.S. with populations of more than 100,000. Behind Detroit, rounding out the top five most violent big cities are St. Louis at No. 2, followed by Memphis, Baltimore and Rockford, Ill., according the FBI's 2016 Uniform Crime Report.

In 2015, St. Louis held the title as most violent city in the country. Detroit ranked No. 2, even though it had seen a 13% drop in violent crime that year. This year, the two cities switched positions, with Detroit taking the top spot again.

3 men killed, 36 wounded in Chicago weekend shootings

Three men were shot to death and at least 36 other people were wounded in shootings across Chicago between Friday evening and Monday morning, marking a violent first weekend of the fall season.

After the latest spate of gun violence, 473 people have been shot dead in the city since the start of the year, according to data maintained by the Chicago Sun-Times. Friday marked the end of a violent summer season that left 184 people killed in city gun violence from June 21 to Sept. 21. The city has recorded at least 508 homicides so far in 2017.

A man was killed in a drive-by shooting about 9:30 a.m. Sunday in the West Side Austin neighborhood. Dashawn Townes, 34, was shot by someone in a silver vehicle in the 900 block of North Massasoit, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Townes, who lived nearby, was struck in the neck and chest and taken to Stroger Hospital, where he died at 10:07 a.m.

Officers responded to a call of a person shot shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday and found 33-year-old Andrew Dehart lying face down in the street in the 1500 block of South Trumbull in the Lawndale neighborhood on the Southwest Side, authorities said. Dehart had been shot in the face and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 2:30 a.m. He lived on the same block as the shooting.

Here are some of the victims of Chicago violence since one poster is demanding photos today.

Feds open civil rights probe into Nashville church shooting

ANTIOCH, TENNESSEE - (The Tennessean) The motive for the attack is still unclear. Samson is a native of Sudan, moving to the United States in 1996.

The Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, created in 1957 by the enactment of the Civil Rights Act of 1957, works to uphold the civil and constitutional rights of all Americans, particularly some of the most vulnerable members of our society, according to the Department of Justice website.

Samson was treated at a local hospital and is now in police custody. The Nashville shooting that left one woman dead and eight others wounded is now the subject of a federal civil rights investigation.

"The Memphis FBI Field Office's Nashville Resident Agency, the Civil Rights Division, and the US Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Tennessee have opened a civil rights investigation into the shooting at the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, Tennessee," said David Boling, spokesman for the U.S. attorney in Nashville.

More than 80 arrested after protest violence downtown; 'Police owned tonight,' chief says

ST. LOUIS • Police made more than 80 arrests downtown Sunday night after violence erupted following hours of peaceful protesting.

It marked the third night of violence following the Friday acquittal of former St. Louis Police officer Jason Stockley, charged with murdering a black drug suspect.

Around 1 a.m. Monday, Mayor Lyda Krewson and Interim Police Chief Lawrence O'Toole held a brief press conference.

"For the third day in a row, the days have been calm and the nights have been destructive," Krewson said. "This is unacceptable. Destruction cannot be tolerated."
