Greg Abbott, 20 year veteran of the Cobb County Police Department of the West Georgia region, was officially fired late Thursday afternoon due to a comment that he made during a routine traffic stop.
Abbott asked a passenger of the vehicle to why they refused to lower their hands during the stop and was answered with, "...I've seen too many videos of people of people killing people." He answered, with, "but you're not black. Remember, we only kill black people. Yeah. We only kill black people, right?"
More details will be posted when they are available.
North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un said he was postponing the planned missile strike near Guam, but warned he would shoot if there were still "reckless actions" from the United States, AFP quoted FOCUS as saying.
Analysts believe that Kim Jong Un's comments open the way for de-escalation of the growing crisis that has been fed by the exchange of sharp replicas between the White House and Pyongyang.
The DPRK state news agency said the chief had received a briefing on "Guam's firefighting plans" during an inspection of the Strategic Forces Command, responsible for the nation's nuclear weapons.
Kim Jong Un adds about the United States that "if they persist in their extremely dangerous and reckless actions on the Korean Peninsula, then the DPRK will take action as it has already been announ
A Russian military spy plane cruised the skies over Washington and New Jersey on Wednesday — in a perfectly legal bit of aerial reconnaissance that nonetheless appeared to be an attempt to troll President Donald Trump.
A 1992 agreement known as the Treaty on Open Skies allows each country to conduct surveillance flights over the other's territory, something the U.S. and Russia have done a combined 165 times over the past 15 years, according to the State Department.
But Russia's choice of targets this go-round have a decidedly Trumpian flavor, taking the spy plane over Trump's current hometown of Washington, D.C., and past Bedminster, N.J., where the president is vacationing at one of his golf clubs, according to a flight-tracking website monitored by POLITICO.

Scientists have hailed a “breakthrough” technology capable of regrowing damaged organs and healing serious wounds with the single touch of a penny-sized pad.
The new device uses nanochips to reprogramme skin cells which then generate any type of cell necessary for medical treatment.
The non-invasive procedure takes less than a second and in laboratory trials was found to restore the function of badly damaged blood vessels within days.
Dubbed tissue nanotransfection (TNT), the technique works by placing a small pad of nanochips over a damaged area.
A small electric current then fires DNA into the skin cells, converting them into the specific building block cells of any other part of the body, such as arteries, or even organs like the heart.
It promises to transform the

Hackers who breached a Kansas Department of Commerce data system used by multiple states gained access to more than 5.5 million Social Security numbers and put the agency on the hook to pay for credit monitoring services for all victims.
The number of SSNs exposed across the 10 states whose data was accessed has not been previously reported. The Kansas News Service, a collaboration of KCUR, Kansas Public Radio, KMUW and High Plains Public Radio, obtained the information through an open records request.
More than half a million of the SSNs were from Kansas, according to the Department of Commerce.
The data is from websites that help connect people to jobs, such as Kansasworks.com, where members of the public seeking employment can post their resumes and search job openings. Kansas
These researchers suggest humans have 30 years to double our food supply, and a local university said robots will help get the job done.
Engineers at the University of Georgia have developed robots and software that will monitor crops to gather information for geneticists to help increase food and fiber production.
“Arable land that is in production worldwide is a finite resource,” Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black said.
According to WSB-TV's report, Black suggested growers must be more productive with the farm land they already have. Black also believes, crops can be genetically developed to increase yields, resistance to pests and to withstand droughts and high temperatures.
“We’re very certain we’ve got to increase this food and fiber production somewhere between 7
