Cops: Teacher who fired shot in classroom once tried confess to murder

Source: AJC

A North Georgia social studies teacher, known as the longtime “radio voice” of Dalton High School football and basketball, is facing charges after he fired at least one shot inside a classroom Wednesday, and he once tried to confess to having someone killed, police said.

The alleged confession was one of two previous incidents involving Randal Davidson and local police.

Dalton police could not verify any of the information Davidson said on March 21, 2016, about having two friends kill someone on his behalf. Police ultimately took him to Hamilton Medical Center because he was having suicidal thoughts, according to a police report. The school was made aware of the incident, police said.

Then, in January 2017, Davidson disappeared from the high school campus after saying he didn’t feel well and leaving early. He was found hours later sitting on a curb about a mile away, unable or unwilling to respond to police, according to the report. He was again taken to the hospital and no further action was taken by officers.

Possible weekend protest near Charlottesville, Virginia, sparks worry

Source: USA Today

VERONA, Va. — The CEO of Nexus Services Inc. said he was recently warned by authorities that hundreds of anti-immigration protesters might descend on his company's Verona campus on Saturday.

CEO Michael Donovan said up to 500 protesters from a group known as "The Three Percenters" could show up, according to a press release.

Nexus provides GPS tracking to detained immigrants so they can be released while awaiting immigration court hearings and deals with criminal defendants as well. The company has several private and nonprofit subsidiary services with offices across the nation.

"While we respect the First Amendment rights of all people and have no issue with peaceful demonstrations of any kind, we simply cannot remain silent against the forces of hate, ignorance, and white supremacy," Donovan said in a press release. "It is our experience that when good people stand up to bullies, the bullies typically turn away from the bright light of truth. Sunlight is the best disinfectant in the marketplace of ideas."

Marine Le Pen charged for posting violent Isis images on Twitter

Source: The Guardian

Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right Front National, has been charged over photographs she tweeted showing gruesome images of purported atrocities by Islamic State.

The move by a judge in Nanterre on Thursday came after the national assembly voted in November to strip Le Pen of her parliamentary immunity over the three photos posted in 2015.

Le Pen, who lost to Emmanuel Macron in last year’s presidential vote, is facing charges of circulating “violent messages that incite terrorism or pornography or seriously harm human dignity”, and that can be viewed by a minor. The crime is punishable by up to three years in prison and a fine of €75,000 (£66,000).

The pictures were posted a few weeks after the Paris terror attacks in November 2015, in which 130 people were killed.
