California man robbed at gunpoint after meeting woman on dating app, sheriff’s office says

A California woman has been arrested after going on a first date with a man who arranged to meet her through an online dating app and was later allegedly robbed at gunpoint by two of her male associates, according to the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office.

Shalena Lopez, 31, and one of the men, Mario Gaona, 39, were arrested Thursday, the sheriff’s office said in a news release Friday.

The second man, Cesar Domingo Jr., 27, was being sought, according to the sheriff’s office. Lopez lived in Porterville, as did Gaona and Domingo.

The release said the victim arranged to meet Lopez at 2 a.m. Thursday in Porterville through the “Meet Me” social media site and knew her as “Karma.”

He then took her and Gaona to a casino in Porterville where they met Domingo, according to the news release. He was told that Gaona was a “family member” and that Domingo was a friend, authorities said.

“The victim said they left the casino, and, while driving back to Porterville, he heard what sounded like two gunshots from within or around his vehicle,” the news release said.

“The ‘relative’ of the woman then threatened him with a gun,” authorities said. “The victim was told to drive to an AM/PM [convenience store] in Porterville and withdraw money from the ATM.”

The victim complied out of fear and gave the money to one of the men who had walked into the store with him, according to the release.

“Eventually he dropped them all off and was allowed to leave,” the news release said.

Pittsburgh Steelers’ Mason Rudolph fined $50G by NFL for role in helmet-swinging fight, report says

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph has been fined $50,000 by the NFL for his involvement in the highly publicized fight at the end of the Cleveland-Pittsburgh game on Nov. 14, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport said other players have also been and will be fined for their roles in the brawl, including those who left the bench during the game.

The fight occurred during the final eight seconds of the Steelers’ 21-7 loss to the Browns, when the Browns’ defensive end Myles Garrett violently ripped off Rudolph’s helmet and hit the quarterback in the head with it — resulting in an indefinite suspension and a fine for the former 2017 first overall draft pick.

NFL FOUND ‘NO EVIDENCE’ MASON RUDOLPH HURLED SLUR AT MYLES GARRETT, REPORTEDLY HAD NO SOUND FROM BRAWL

Rudolph was initially seen fighting with Garrett on the ground before charging at him, which was when Garrett removed his helmet. He said his reason was that Garrett hit him “late” on the play, according to Fox 8.

The quarterback offered an apology for his role in the brawl on Wednesday.

“For my involvement last week, there’s no acceptable excuse,” Rudolph said in a prepared statement, according to ESPN. “The bottom line is I should’ve done a better job keeping my composure in that situation and [not] fall short of what I believe it means to be a Pittsburgh Steeler and a member of the NFL.”

The fine equates to more than an entire game paycheck for Rudolph, who is still on the second year of his rookie deal. He earns a base salary of $658,267 in 2019, which is $38,721.59 per week.

After the fight, Garrett allegedly told NFL personnel during an appeal hearing that Rudolph directed a racial slur at him before the brawl, which the quarterback denied. The league said on Thursday it “found no such evidence” that a slur was spoken, according to ESPN.

The NFL also suspended Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi for one game and Steelers center Maurkice Pouncy — who retaliated against Garrett — for two games, Fox 8 reported.

Fines are expected to be issued to about 10 players for leaving the bench area and running on the field, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Helen Raleigh: US must stand with Hong Kong’s freedom fighters

Westlake Legal Group AP19319388617333 Helen Raleigh: US must stand with Hong Kong’s freedom fighters Helen Raleigh fox-news/world/world-regions/hong-kong fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/world fox-news/us/congress fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 1496ef23-f4d1-5dbe-9851-2f2f0b534af0

The Senate unanimously passed Sen. Marco Rubio’s Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act on Tuesday, leading Rubio, R-Fla., to say: “The passage of this bill is an important step in holding accountable those Chinese and Hong Kong government officials responsible for Hong Kong’s eroding autonomy and human rights violations.”

The House passed the measure 417-1 Wednesday, sending it to President Trump, who has not yet said if he will sign it as he works to reach a trade agreement with China.

“I stand with Hong Kong,” the president said Friday in an interview with “Fox & Friends.” “I stand with freedom. I stand with all of the things we want to do. But we’re also in the process of making the largest trade deal in history.”

TRUMP EXPECTED TO SIGN HONG KONG BILL AFTER IT CLEARS HOUSE, SENATE AMID CHINESE THREATS

Passage of the bill comes at a critical time in Hong Kong’s history. The violent confrontations in Hong Kong between police and young protesters have gotten worse. In recent days, we saw images of the once-serene campus of Hong Kong Polytechnic University become a war zone lit by fires.

More from Opinion

On the one side are police in full riot gear who are firing tear gas, rubber bullets and sometimes even live ammunition against protesters.

The power of such force overwhelmed protesters, who are fighting back with only bricks and bows and arrows. Many of them are teens or in their early 20s.

Police sealed all exits of the campus and trapped the protesters there. More than 1,000 students have been detained by the police. The images of fire, smoke and injured youth are reminiscent of what the world witnessed in Tiananmen Square in June 1989, when the Chinese government brutally cracked down on pro-democracy students.

It seems history is about to repeat itself in Hong Kong, once the freest place on earth.

Let’s not forget that the protests started as a peaceful rejection of an extradition bill in April. Residents rightfully fear that should the extradition bill become law, Hong Kong would have to surrender anyone Beijing deems a “criminal,” including human rights activists, political dissidents and any critics of the Communist Party.

Hong Kongers took their concerns to the streets, first in the hundreds, then in the thousands, then in the millions. In mid-June, the rest of the world witnessed 2 million Hong Kongers – more than a quarter of the city’s population – walking down the streets of Hong Kong peacefully and demanding that authorities completely withdraw the proposed extradition bill.

Congress has sent a message to Hong Kong, to the rest of the world, and especially to the authoritarian regime in Beijing: the U.S. always stands at the forefront with those who fight for freedom.

People of all ages and occupations joined the protests. Hong Kong youth were the most impressive. They stayed behind to collect trash and sorted recyclables. After the massive protests, the world was impressed with the litter-free streets and zero property damage.

Hong Kongers’ maturity discredits Beijing’s long-held claim that democracy is incompatible with the Chinese people and Chinese culture.

But Hong Kong authorities and Beijing refused to listen to the people’s demands. Such refusal led to the violent confrontations between police and protesters we have seen since then.

The protests in Hong Kong have been going on for six months now. Instead of simply protesting the extradition bill, the protests have evolved into a pro-democracy movement seeking universal suffrage and an independent investigation into reported police brutality.

It seems that neither Hong Kong authorities nor the protesters are willing to back off at this point. Since the protesters are so outgunned by the police force, the continuing confrontation can only lead to a tragic outcome similar to what happened in Tiananmen Square in 1989.

Early this month a 22-year-old student died after falling from a parking structure near a protest site. The exact circumstances of his death are unclear, but his passing became a rallying cry for investigating police conduct.

Then last week a young man was gunned down by police. Incidents like these remind us that these young Hong Kong protesters are the future of this city. Leaders of the free world, especially in the U.S., have a moral obligation to protect them.

This is why the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019 is so critical at this time. The bill “addresses Hong Kong’s status under U.S. law and imposes sanctions on those responsible for human rights violations in Hong Kong.”

Even though Hong Kong is legally part of China, the city’s unique status – including an independent judicial system and a free-market economy – has enabled it to enjoy special treatment from the U.S.

The legislation passed by Congress requests the State Department to “certify annually to Congress as to whether Hong Kong warrants its unique treatment under various treaties, agreements, and U.S. law. The analysis shall evaluate whether Hong Kong is upholding the rule of law and protecting rights enumerated in various documents.”

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR OPINION NEWSLETTER

The legislation also asks the president to “impose property and visa-blocking sanctions on foreign persons responsible for gross human rights violations in Hong Kong.”

In Rubio’s words, by passing this bill “the United States Senate sent a clear message to Hong Kongers fighting for their long-cherished freedoms: we hear you, we continue to stand with you, and we will not stand idly by as Beijing undermines your autonomy.”

Now Hong Kong authorities and Beijing will have to think twice before using deadly forces against Hong Kong protesters.

For more than six months, Hong Kongers have been waving American flags and singing American anthems. They want something we Americans sometimes take for granted – the freedom to choose.

Congress has sent a message to Hong Kong, to the rest of the world, and especially to the authoritarian regime in Beijing: the U.S. always stands at the forefront with those who fight for freedom.

German police testing DNA of 900 men for unsolved murder cold case

Police in Germany asked roughly 900 men on Saturday to come forward and have their DNA tested to help solve the gruesome murder of an 11-year-old girl who was killed 23 years ago.

Claudia Ruf was kidnapped in May 1996 while walking her neighbor’s dog in the western city of Grevenbroich — a case that shocked the country at the time.

Her body was found two days later in Euskirchen, 43 miles south of Grevenbroich, having been strangled, covered in gas and partially burned, according to the BBC.

No one has been charged with her death.

Investigators recently initiated the mass DNA analysis on hundreds of men in the area, with the first wave of testing beginning on Saturday, according to the BBC.

The 900 men selected for the test were between 14 and 70 years old at the time of Ruf’s death and received invitations for a saliva swab test at a local primary school to have their DNA identified, the outlet reported.

DNA traces of the murderer were allegedly found on the body of Ruf, investigators hope the mass testing will lead them to the person who committed the crime. Police said that not all 900 men are suspects.

“After more than 23 years, there’s a big possibility to solve the sad fate of my daughter,” Claudia’s father, Friedhelm Ruf, told The Associated Press. “The perpetrator has been able for too long to hide behind all of us.”

Police told the Bild newspaper they’ve received dozens of tips to help solve the murder thanks to a renewed interest in the case, and men over the age of 14 are invited to take part in the testing.

The Rheinische Post reported that at 10 a.m. Saturday morning, the first men were already lining up outside the elementary school to get tested.

DELEWARE POLICE RELEASE FACIAL RECONSTRUCTION IMAGES AFTER FINDING REMAINS OF YOUNG GIRL

One of those men, 46-year-old Stefan Oberlies explained to Bild why he was taking part in the mass testing.

“Hopefully the culprit will be found. Of course, I have read a lot about the bad case,” Oberlies told the outlet.

The new push comes after investigators in 2010 unsuccessfully tested some 350 men’s DNA in the area. They say that since those tests in 2010, they have found new hints that could help them find the murderer by checking the 900 men.

Police did not say if any of the 350 men previously tested were part of the group of 900 that they hoped to reach now.

For months, investigators asked the public for help in finding Ruf’s murderer. Posters of the girl were put up on busses and trains and police distributed flyers. Over a year after her killing, the case was shown on public TV, again asking the public to come forward with tips. A reward was offered and Ruf’s case was the first in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia to get its own homepage at the time.

The analysis of the samples will take roughly four to eight weeks, according to the BBC.

Navy Secretary threatened to resign over Trump’s request, but not top SEAL commander: officials

Navy Secretary Richard Spencer threatened to resign if the Navy was not allowed to go through with an administrative review board next month to determine if Eddie Gallagher could remain a SEAL, multiple Navy officials confirmed to Fox News.

Earlier Saturday, The New York Times reported that along with Spencer, Naval Special Warfare (NSW) Commander Rear Adm. Collin Green also threatened to resign if the Navy carries out the request of President Trump to restore Gallagher’s rank to chief petty officer after he was demoted last summer. Gallagher was found not guilty of murdering an Islamic State (ISIS) fighter during a 2017 deployment to Iraq but was convicted of posing for a photo with the dead corpse.

However, officials say that The Times was inaccurate in reporting that Green threatened to resign over the Gallagher disagreement. Only Spencer — not Green — made such a threat, they said.

Collin Green, Richard Spencer 

Gallagher was found not guilty of murdering an ISIS militant during the same deployment to Iraq. His case and trial made international headlines and caught the attention of President Trump, who tweeted on Wednesday in support of Gallagher.

“The Navy will NOT be taking away Warfighter and Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher’s Trident Pin,” Trump said.

TRUMP DECLARES NAVY WILL NOT TAKE AWAY EDDIE GALLAGHER’S SEAL TRIDENT, AS ATTORNEY BLASTS ADMIRAL

“This case was handled very badly from the beginning. Get back to business!” he added. The Trident pin signifies membership of the elite SEAL force.

Spencer, a political appointee and civilian, has threatened to resign because he wants to see the process play out formally inside the Pentagon, according to officials.

“A tweet is not a written order,” one official said about the president telling the SEALs over Twitter this week not to remove Gallagher from the SEAL teams and take his Trident pin away.

However, Spencer denied threatening to resign at a defense conference in Halifax, Canada, according to reporters present.

“I’m still here, I did not threaten to resign, we’re here to talk about external threats and Eddie Gallagher is not one of them,” Spencer said during a panel on the Arctic.

TRUMP GRANTS CLEMENCY TO 2 ARMY OFFICERS ACCUSED OF WAR CRIMES, RESTORES RANK TO NAVY SEAL EDDIE GALLAGHER

There is concern at the Pentagon that the president is micromanaging the military justice system, according to multiple officials who asked not to be identified, this following the president’s recent pardons issued to two Army officers, as well as ordering Gallagher’s rank be restored.

Officials say the president should not be deciding who can or cannot be a Navy SEAL.

On Nov. 15, Trump granted clemency to Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance, six years after he was found guilty of murder for ordering his soldiers to open fire and kill three men in Afghanistan. His supporters say they killed Taliban fighters. However, nine members of his unit testified against him, saying the men were innocent.

Trump also granted clemency to Maj. Matt Golsteyn, a former Green Beret, and said the murder charges will be dropped against him. Golsteyn was charged in the 2010 premeditated murder of a suspected Taliban bomb maker. His trial was expected to begin next month.

On Thursday, Gallagher’s laywer Tim Parlatore appeared on “Fox & Friends” and called out Green, whom he said is exhibiting cowardice and hubris in holding a board review of Gallagher.

“If Admiral Green really wants to do this, he shouldn’t try and put people in the middle to put the blame on them,” Parlatore said. “He shouldn’t be a coward like that. He should stand up and do it himself.”

“There’s been some who say that he shouldn’t have his rank restored but all of them cite reasons that show that they haven’t paid any attention to the case whatsoever,” Parlatore added. “His rank was taken away for something that… — nobody else in the history of the SEAL teams or the military has ever had general court-martial conviction for a photo like this.”

Climate protesters delay Harvard-Yale football game after staging sit-in on field

Westlake Legal Group Harvard-Protests-AP-3 Climate protesters delay Harvard-Yale football game after staging sit-in on field Sam Dorman fox-news/us/environment/climate-change fox-news/us/education/college fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox news fnc/sports fnc article 42dceae6-84ad-5474-87b2-870e74f25497

Saturday’s Harvard-Yale football game came to a halt after climate protesters staged a sit-in during halftime and refused to leave.

A few dozen protesters made their way onto the field. Some held signs demanding that Ivy League schools divest from the fossil fuel industry. Others had signs that raised issues of Puerto Rican debt and the treatment of the Uighurs in China.

The incident ended after about an hour when police escorted some of the protesters off the field. A handful of others were arrested.

Police in yellow vests initially lined up alongside the sit-in but did not intervene. When the 15-minute halftime expired and the protest continued, hundreds more fans streamed onto the field to join in. By halftime, Harvard was leading Yale 15-3.

DONALD TRUMP REACTS TO JANE FONDA’S ARRESTS: ‘NOTHING CHANGES’

Chants of “Hey Hey! Ho Ho! Fossil fuels have got to go!” were interrupted by the public address announcer imploring the protesters to leave.

“As a courtesy to both teams, the game must resume,” he said.

After about an hour, police formed a line and moved forward, from the Yale sideline toward the Harvard sideline. An agreement was reached to escort the remaining protesters off the field, with one police officer to accompany every two protesters.

Those who did not leave at that point, about one or two dozen, were informed by Yale Police Chief Ronnell Higgins that they would be arrested.

The protest received support from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who has become a leading figure of the progressive movement’s climate advocacy.

Others weren’t supportive of the protest.

“If we haven’t yet reached peak stupid, then we are assuredly about to cross the event horizon,” former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino tweeted.

The incident was just the latest in a series of climate demonstrations that erupted in the fall. Protesters held sit-ins in the offices of both House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, demanding more aggressive action on climate change. Actress Jane Fonda has participated in several protests, including one on Friday that resulted in multiple arrests.
