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
Officials in two Arizona counties are warning the public after fleas in the region tested positive for the plague, the infamous infectious disease that killed millions during the Middle Ages.
Navajo County Public Health officials confirmed on Friday that fleas in the area have tested positive for the rare disease. The public health warning follows a similar notice from Coconino County Public Health Services District in Arizona warning of the presence of plague in fleas found there too.
Both counties are situated in the northern part of Arizona.
"Navajo County Health Department is urging the public to take precautions to reduce their risk of exposure to this serious disease, which can be present in fleas, rodents, rabbits and predators that feed upon these animals," the public heal...
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
Well, that's one way to ensure employee loyalty...
When most businesses throw a party, it's to note a milestone or a birthday. At Wisconsin's Three Square Market, also known as 32M, Tuesday's celebration revolved around implanting microchips into roughly half of its workforce.
41 of the company's 85 workers actually volunteered to take part in the "chip party" - having a microchip implanted into their bodies, which the company says will let them open doors, log into computers and buy snacks from the break room with a wave of their hand.
On the upside, the employees didn't have to pay for the chips. The company picked up the tab for that.
Chips have long been used as identification markers for pets who are prone to roam. But inserting them into the flesh of human beings is a new

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
Shopping might be about to get pretty creepy. Walmart, it seems, is branching out into the business of facial recognition technology. Apparently, the grocery store giant is seeking ways to identify whether a customer is unhappy or dissatisfied, and then sending staff in to deal with them before they are able to register a complaint.
According to reports, Walmart has filed a patent that seeks to develop facial recognition technology by scanning customers as they wait in line for the cashier. The footage will then be fed into a computer, which will assess how each person is feeling. If the system judges a customer to be sad or unhappy, then the right staff members will be alerted, and the problem dealt with.
The company insists that this technology is entirely focused on improving thei
The Philippines and China are at odds as to which of the country has rights to Reed Bank, an 8,866 square-kilometer table mount 80 kilometers from the Philippine island of Palawan.
The Philippines is ready to let drilling restart there, after it has been halted two years ago when the disagreement had began publicly. China believes more than 90% of the sea including Reed Bank to be its own – despite the July 2016 arbitration verdict saying otherwise. Thusly, they would not appreciate the drilling from Philippines. Therein lies a question, will China allow the Philippines to continue drilling to sustain their friendship, which keeps China’s chief rival the United States at bay, or start an altercation. Strong push-back would risk letting the United States tighten its grip on the Philippin
