The targeting of police with violence–it has happened again here in Indy. An Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department station was shot-up on Thursday night and this time with several personnel inside. This happened shortly before 11 p.m. at IMPD’s North District headquarters in the 3100 block of East 30th Street. The last time a police station was targeted was just over a week ago at the Northwest District headquarters. No one was injured in either, but this time one of the bullets made it all the way through. WTHR-TV reported that in this latest incident, police do not think the suspects executed a simple ‘drive-by.’ Police believe the shooter actually got out of the car and fired the shots–making this attack more organized and calculated. IMPD commanders say they believe the same person who shot at the Northwest District headquarters last week is responsible for this shooting. IMPD Chief Troy Riggs says officers are making it a priority to catch the shooter.
Prosecutors in Elkhart County aren’t seeking the death penalty against a mom who admits she killed her two children. Instead prosecutors are asking for life without parole for Amber Pasztor. Police say she smothered her children after abducting them. Pasztor told a Ft. Wayne TV station that she gave her seven-year-old daughter and six-year-old son a choice to live or die before killing them.
Donald Trump’s running mate says he’ll stand by his candidate and that the notion he’s thinking of stepping aside is “categorically false.” Governor Mike Pence made an appearance on Fox News and told them he’s “prayed through” his decision to run for vice president and that he’s “in it to the finish.” Pence dismissed recent polls that show Hillary Clinton in the lead, saying there’s “something missing” there. When asked how he feels about House Speaker Paul Ryan’s decision to distance himself from Trump, Pence said Ryan is his friend but that he thinks Republican leaders should support their party’s nominee. Pence made the TV morning show rounds Friday morning.
Trump continues to dismiss allegations he inappropriately groped and kissed women without their consent. Trump called the claims made by several women totally and absolutely false. He said they’re part of an “orchestrated attack” by the “Clinton machine” and their media allies. Campaigning for Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire on Thursday First Lady Michelle Obama took aim at some of Trump’s caught-on-camera comments about women. She called them painful, disgraceful and not befitting someone running for president of the United States.
President Barack Obama says Republicans shouldn’t be surprised that Donald Trump is their party’s nominee. Speaking in Ohio, the President said for a long time Republicans have been “feeding their base all kinds of crazy” for political gain. He said Republicans weren’t upset when Trump was questioning whether he was born in the U.S.
