Military plane crashes in North Carolina; pilot hospitalized

A military plane crashed in North Carolina Monday evening, sending the pilot to the hospital with undisclosed injuries.

Craven County Emergency Services Director Stanley Kite told WCTI the crash was reported in Havelock shortly after 6 p.m. The crash site is close to Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point.

Eyewitnesses told the station that the pilot ejected and parachuted to the ground before the plane hit the ground. Kite said the crash briefly sparked a fire that was put out by emergency responders.

Young Marine hopeful helped stop Colorado school shooting that left 1 dead, 8 injured

A student who helped subdue one of the Colorado school shooters is a member of the Marines’ Delayed Entry Program, the U.S. Marine Corps said Wednesday.

The Marines said the student, Brendan Bialy, put his own safety at risk and showed “courage and commitment” in helping tackle a gunman in the STEM School in the south Denver suburbs.

At a press conference on Wednesday afternoon, Bialy said he tackled the gunman and fought back out of pure instinct.

He said he refused to be a victim, and he has been getting online gratitude from as far away as Ireland.

“The United States Marine Corps has confirmed that Brendan Bialy, a current poolee in the Marine Corps Delayed Entry Program (DEP), assisted in subduing an active shooter at STEM School Highlands Ranch on May 7, 2019,” Capt. Michael Maggitti said in a statement. “Brendan’s courage and commitment to swiftly ending this tragic incident at the risk of his own safety is admirable and inspiring. His decisive actions resulted in the safety and protection of his teachers and fellow classmates. Brendan joined the DEP July 12, 2018 out of Recruiting Sub-station Parker, CO, and is scheduled to ship to recruit training this summer.”

TUCKER CARLSON: REP. BRIAN SIMS IS A FROTHING EXTREMIST — AND A TOTALLY MAINSTREAM FIGURE IN TODAY’S DEMOCRATIC PARTY

The Delayed Entry Program allows prospective Marines to sign up days or months before they start training.

Fox 31 reported that Bialy is to begin training this summer.

Maggitti said Bialy was not injured.

Authorities said 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo was killed after he lunged at one of the shooters. Eight other students were injured.

Authorities said one of the suspects is 18-year-old Devon Erickson, a student at the STEM School Highlands Ranch where Tuesday’s shootings occurred. They said the second suspect is a juvenile who also attended the school. Authorities said the two students used at least two handguns.

Douglas County Sheriff Tony Spurlock said the suspects had a “number of weapons” in Tuesday’s shooting including two handguns, which he said they weren’t old enough to buy or own.

US Marine among activists charged with storming North Korean embassy in Spain as video released

They entered the North Korean embassy in Madrid, Spain last February, and grabbed computers, thumb drives and a cell phone that they then handed over to the FBI, investigators said.

But instead of thanking them, the Justice Department is charging the pair.

The two dissidents, 37-year-old U.S. Marine Christopher Ahn and noted human rights activist Adrian Hong, are members of the North Korean resistance group Free Joseon, or “Free North Korea.” They are calling for the downfall of Kim Jong Un’s regime and consider themselves the “Provisional government of Free Joseon.” But now, the U.S. is seeking to extradite the two to face charges in Madrid.

“We shouldn’t extradite these people to Spain,” says Gordon Chang, the noted Asian analyst and author of the new book, “Losing South Korea.”

“The Spanish should never have asked for extradition in the first place, because these ‘crimes,’ quote un-quote, are actually political.”

The group has been fighting the regime, and has helped some high-level North Koreans defect, including the son of Kim’s half-brother Kim Jong Nam, whose assassination with VX nerve gas in 2017 at the Kuala Lumpur airport was blamed on the regime.

Fox News obtained video purporting to show an activist removing the official portraits of Kim Jong Un and his father, Kim Jong Il, from the embassy wall. The activist then smashed the portraits on the floor, breaking the glass into pieces as it hit. That would be an unthinkable act in North Korea.

“What they have done is really God’s work, over a long period of time,” says Chang. “This group has been able to do some very important things that governments have not wanted to do and have not been able to do. And also we know that the group took thumb drives out of the North Korean embassy in Madrid, they gave them to the FBI and this is important because North Korean embassies are really centers of crime. North Korea raises money through criminal activities, which are centered on the embassies. I am sure that we found a lot of information about how North Korea launders money through Europe, because of the information this group gave to federal authorities.”

Christopher Ahn served in Fallujah, Iraq, and Hong is the co-founder of the group Liberty In North Korea, and has been recognized for his humanitarian work by then-President Obama, whom he visited at the White House.

The criminal complaint from Spanish authorities says that a group of about ten people, led by Hong, entered the embassy on February 2, and attacked “all the personnel that were in the diplomatic mission, until they managed to reduce them and place shackles and ties on them to immobilize them, and put bags on their heads.”

It claims that the embassy personnel were beaten and threatened “with iron bars and what appeared as firearms,” but that the chief North Korean diplomat “told them that he would not betray his country and would not defect.”

But Hong’s lawyer, Lee Wolosky, brands the claims that the group broke in and threatened violence as total nonsense. He says that the embassy’s video security cameras clearly show members calmly entering the building.

“We do not believe it is appropriate for the Department of Justice to execute warrants based on North Korean criminal complaints and the highly unreliable accounts of North Korean government witnesses. The North Korean witnesses who spent hours inside the embassy with representatives of the Provisional Government have an obvious incentive to lie and to maintain that they were subjected to extreme coercion,” he said in a statement to Fox News.

Gordon Chang said the U.S. government should not prosecute the activists based on what he says are questionable claims from Kim Jong Un’s diplomats. While he says that there is disagreement over what transpired in the embassy, “we do know that this group was trying to do some very important things that help the West, including Spain.”

Fox News viewed one video from a security camera inside an embassy conference room that purportedly shows a North Korean diplomat meeting with “Free North Korea” members, and they are seen calmly talking and laughing.

“As we have maintained from the beginning, Free Joseon was invited to enter the Embassy, and there was no ‘attack’ or forced entry. The North Korean accounts are now contradicted by the CCTV images released by the Spanish authorities and the other evidence that we understand has now been provided to Fox News,” said Wolosky in his statement.

“They were probably invited in, this was probably an inside job,” said Gordon Chang. “Someone on the inside was going to defect. The reporting is that this was a botched attempt to get one of those senior North Korean diplomats to defect.”

Chang says that if it got out to Pyongyang that the activists were actually allowed into the embassy by Kim’s diplomatic staff and remained there talking for several hours, “these people would be executed, after being tortured.”

“North Korea has a problem in Europe. They’ve had some senior diplomats defect recently, and so Pyongyang has been nervous about this network for quite some time.”

Meanwhile, Christopher Ahn sits in a jail cell in Los Angeles awaiting the outcome of Spain’s extradition request, and Adrian Hong remains wanted by federal authorities.

As for the activists’ work, Chang says “it does give hope to the people of North Korea that they can have a better way of life.”

A Marine Corps reservist is under investigation for a photo on Instagram that appeared to show several Marines positioning their boots in the shape of a swastika, the Marine Forces Reserve confirmed Monday.

“We can confirm that Pfc. Anthony D. Schroader is a member of the Selected Marine Corps Reserve and is assigned to 4th Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company, Force Headquarters Group, Marine Forces Reserve located in West Palm Beach, Florida,” Marine Forces Reserve told ABC News.

MARINES COULD BE ENDING LONGTIME POLICY OF SEPARATING MALE, FEMALE RECRUITS DURING BOOT CAMP

Schroader allegedly sent the photo to Marine veteran and “Terminal Lance” creator Maximilian Uriarte on April 26, asking Uriarte to share the image on the social media pages for the popular comic series about the Marine Corps.

Uriarte, who is Jewish, sent a tweet to the Marine Corps asking officials to investigate, according to Task & Purpose, which first reported the story.

“There is no place for racial hatred or extremism in the Marine Corps,” Maj. Roger Hollenbeck told Task & Purpose. “The ‘Terminal Lance’ tweet featuring derogatory behavior by Marines is currently being investigated and any further comment would be premature.”

Hollenbeck declined to say how many Marines in total are under investigation, due to the ongoing probe.

Marines could be ending longtime policy of separating male, female recruits during boot camp

The only service branch of the U.S. armed forces that separates its male and female recruits during boot camp could be ditching that practice as soon as next year.

Lt. Gen. David Berger, the general nominated to lead the Marine Corps, made the announcement Tuesday during a Senate confirmation hearing.

“I talked to the commandant this morning about it and… I said, ‘We have to look at this for perhaps next year,’ and he said, ‘Absolutely,'” Berger said, according to Military.com. “I think it’s a discussion that he and I will have — and the Marine Corps will have.”

The website says those in favor of the change have argued that separating the two genders during training creates instant divisions and has led to tensions among male and female Marines in recent years.

TEEN PAYS TRIBUTE TO FALLEN MARINES WITH PROM DRESS DESIGN

Advocates for maintaining the status quo say it ensures that recruits don’t get distracted while forming bonds with their drill instructors.

The Marines appeared to test the proposed changes earlier this year when a mixed-gender training battalion – the first of its kind, comprised of one female platoon and five male platoons – graduated from boot camp at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island in South Carolina.

Outside of the recruits being housed in different living quarters, the training regimen remained the same.

“Combining platoons into a single company this training cycle offered an initial opportunity to assess some opportunities, challenges, outcomes and achievements in training, logistics and resources,” Jessica Hanley, a spokeswoman with the Marine Corps Combat Development Command, told Military.com.

Berger has said that training class performed “very well.”

“The statistics… for this company were the same as every other company — a few areas higher, a few areas lower — but it went great,” he said, according to Military.com.

Marine who crawled across Boston Marathon finish line for fallen comrades invited to run NYC Marathon

The U.S. Marine who crawled across the Boston Marathon finish line in honor of his fallen comrades has been invited to run the New York City Marathon despite not qualifying for the race, according to a report.

Micah Herndon, 31, ran the race in 3 hours and 38 minutes on Monday. With around 4 miles left in the race, his legs began to give out, and with around 100 yards left, his military training kicked in.

Herndon got to his hands and knees and crawled on the pavement to finish the race. He told The Associated Press it “was the longest 4.2 miles I’ve ever run in my life.”

“It was kind of second nature,” he said. “They instill ‘adapt and overcome.’ Any situation you’re in, that’s what you do.”

Herndon told ABC News’ Good Morning America that he was trying to qualify for the New York City Marathon, which is scheduled for November. But when he realized he couldn’t get his goal pace down, he “just had one mission in mind and that was to finish by myself.”

But despite his race scores, the news outlet reported the marathon operation invited Herndon to join the race anyway.

“I appreciate that. That’s good stuff right there,” Herndon said. “Whoever set that up, thank you.”

The Marine ran the marathon on Monday in honor of Marines Mark Juarez and Matthew Ballard, and British journalist Rupert Hamer, who were killed in Afghanistan by an IED in 2010. During the Boston Marathon, he ran with their names on his hands, his shoes and race bib. They were his inspiration, he said.

Herndon repeats their names when he’s training or competing in a race, even though he gets strange looks from other runners.

The 31-year-old said “it’s hard to reintegrate into society and be a civilian” after serving overseas, but encouraged other veterans to “find whatever your release is.” He says his “happens to be running.”

A Marine who ran the Boston Marathon in honor of three men he served alongside crawled across the finish line on Monday as his body almost gave up — but his mind didn’t.

Micah Herndon, 31, ran the race in 3 hours and 38 minutes, according to race results. But to hit that mark, he had to physically drag his body along the pavement to finish the race.

Herndon, of Ohio, served several deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Record-Courier reported. During a tour in Afghanistan in 2010, three people he was with were killed when they were targeted by an IED.

Marines Mark Juarez and Matthew Ballard, and Rupert Hamer, a British journalist, died. He said he ran the Boston Marathon on Sunday for them.

“I run in honor of them. They are not here anymore. I am here, and I am able,” Herndon told the news outlet. “I am lucky to still have all my limbs. I can still be active. I find fuel in the simple idea that I can run. Some cannot.”

He said that despite his small plights — whether his feet hurt or he’s tired from running — he reminds himself why he continues.

“I just keep saying their names out loud to myself. They went through much worse, so I run for them and their families.”

In a Facebook post, Herndon shared a photo of a pair of orange Nike sneakers, but with a sentimental detail: three small golden plates featuring the names of Juarez, Ballard and Hamer are weaved in with the shoelaces. The plates served as a reminder to Herndon of why he keeps running.

Videos posted online Monday show Herndon kept his word. Close to the end, he crawled to the finish line, finishing the race 11,334 overall.

US Navy sailor kills himself after stabbing Japanese woman: report

A U.S. Navy sailor allegedly stabbed a Japanese woman before taking his own life in an Okinawa apartment.

The two were found dead Saturday morning inside a six-story apartment building in the Kuwae district of Chatan, according to an Okinawa Prefectural Police spokesman.

Authorities say the murder-suicide was carried out by the male sailor, 31, and both have died from stab wounds, according to the Washington Examiner. It’s unknown why he went through with the attack, but Stars and Strips reported the two were in a relationship.

The woman, in her 40s, had a child in the apartment during the time of the stabbings, who is unharmed and now in government custody. The child called a relative for help, who eventually reached out to the police at 7:26 a.m.

Names have not been released, but the sailor was part of the U.S. 3rd Marine Division, based in Okinawa.

Although Okinawa makes up less than 1 percent of Japan’s land space, AP said, it hosts about half of the 54,000 American troops stationed in Japan, and is home to 64 percent of the land used by U.S. bases in the country.

This attack comes in the wake of an NBC report highlighting resentment toward U.S. troops in Okinawa. “There are so many American troops here. Of course, 99 percent of them are good people, but then there is that 1 percent who do evil things. It’s hard for us,” said Tomomichi Shimabukuro, who runs a seaside inn called Churaumi-kun.

The Washington Examiner says the Marine Corps is cooperating with police as they finish their investigation.

“This is an absolute tragedy and we are fully committed to supporting the investigation into the incident,” the III Marine Expeditionary Force said in a statement. “More information will be forthcoming as the investigation progresses.”

Take Akiba, Japan’s vice minister of foreign affairs, told NBC News he “lodged a strong complaint” with U.S. Ambassador William Hagerty, requesting support for the investigation. Hagerty “expressed his deep regret” for what happened and promised full cooperation with the investigation.
