PA Man ?Upset Over Coronavirus? Shoots Girlfriend Before Turning Gun on Himself: CopsA Pennsylvania man ?extremely upset? about losing his job amidst the coronavirus pandemic allegedly shot his girlfriend, before turning the gun on himself in an attempted murder-suicide, authorities said Wednesday.The Wilson Borough Police Department said in a statement to The Daily Beast that Roderick Bliss IV, 38, attempted to fatally shoot his girlfriend with a semi-automatic pistol on Monday afternoon, before dying by suicide, after he ?had become increasingly upset over the COVID-19 pandemic.? The 43-year-old girlfriend, who was shot once in the back, survived the attack and is in St. Luke?s hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.?In the days prior to the shooting, Bliss had become increasingly upset over the COVID-19 pandemic,? police said. ?Minutes before the shooting Bliss was extremely upset about the pandemic and the fact that he had recently lost his job.?What if This Coronavirus Lockdown Is Only the Beginning?At around 1:20 p.m. on Monday, authorities responded to reports of ?multiple shots fired with injuries? at Bliss? Wilson Borough home, about an hour outside of Philadelphia. Upon arrival, officers found Bliss ?unresponsive and not breathing? and a semi-automatic pistol near his body.The Northampton County Coroner ruled Bliss? death a suicide.The girlfriend, who is alert, and other witnesses told police that Bliss had become upset that the pandemic?which has infected more than 206,200 people and killed 4,542 nationwide?cost him his job. Authorities said an enraged Bliss ?went into the basement and came outside on to the rear porch? with a handgun.?While holding the handgun, Bliss told the victim, ?I already talked to God and I have to do this,?? police said. ?The victim ran off of the porch and he shot at her four times striking her once. Bliss then shot himself.?The attempted murder-suicide marks the latest example of the collateral damage of the coronavirus pandemic. Domestic violence experts and law enforcement believe domestic violence incidents will rise as families are forced into social isolation across the country.Judy Harris Kluger, executive director of Sanctuary for Families in New York, told The Daily Beast that, for some survivors of domestic violence, being able to leave their home is critical?and forced stay-at-home orders isolate them from the ?social support system? that would have previously allowed them to report abuse.White House Trots Out Grim Death Models to Drive Home Social Distancing?Domestic violence is all about power and control and what a powerful tool it is to be able to say to somebody, ?You can?t go out of this house, you have to be here,?? Kluger said. ?Even though people can go out for certain things, this environment just engages in the most negative way the power of the abuser.?Kluger said her organization, and several others across New York?the current epicenter of the outbreak in the United States?are anticipating an increase in domestic violence calls as the pandemic continues.A spokesperson for the National Domestic Violence Hotline said they haven?t yet seen a significant increase in call volumes but were receiving an increase in calls related to COVID-19 and the anxiety of people being stuck in their homes.?Right now, the people who are at risk are very isolated,? Kluger said, noting her organization is reaching out to former clients who might be at risk. ?We are worried that we are going to see an uptick while this ?shelter-in-place? is in effect. Also, as the tension of the crisis rises, we anticipate people will begin reporting soon.?But, even as the looming number of domestic violence cases threatens New York and other cities, the number of healthy police officers is also dwindling.New York Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said Wednesday there were at least 1,400 officers who had tested positive for coronavirus, while about 17 percent had called out sick. Despite trying to police a city with a virus-related death toll of more than 1,000, Shea has previously stressed the NYPD is focused on domestic violence cases.?What I?m concerned about is, it?s happening and it?s not getting reported,? Shea said Tuesday, noting that survivors may not be calling for help. ?We?ve asked the domestic violence officers?you know who the people are in your commands, who are most vulnerable. Pick up the phone, pick up the computer keyboard and start communicating with them. Just make sure that things are OK.?Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

North Korea insists it is free of coronavirus

North Korea insists it is free of coronavirusNorth Korea remains totally free of the coronavirus, a senior health official in Pyongyang has insisted, despite mounting scepticism overseas as confirmed global infections near one million. The already isolated, nuclear-armed North quickly shut down its borders after the virus was first detected in neighbouring China in January, and imposed strict containment measures. Pak Myong Su, director of the anti-epidemic department of the North's Central Emergency Anti-epidemic Headquarters, insisted that the efforts had been completely successful.



Defense lawyer in death of 7 motorcyclists: Biker at fault

Defense lawyer in death of 7 motorcyclists: Biker at faultOne of the motorcyclists in a crash that killed him and six fellow bikers on a north woods highway was drunk and actually was the one who hit a pickup and caused the accident, the lawyer for the truck driver charged with homicide said in a document made public Tuesday. A New Hampshire State Police account of the June 21 crash in the community of Randolph ?was deeply flawed," the lawyer for truck driver Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, 24, of West Springfield, Massachusetts, said in a motion filed Friday that seeks a hearing to set him free on bail. State police initially determined that the flatbed trailer he was hauling was 1 1/2 feet over the center line at the time of impact, the motion said.



IG Horowitz Found ?Apparent Errors or Inadequately Supported Facts? in Every Single FBI FISA Application He Reviewed

IG Horowitz Found ?Apparent Errors or Inadequately Supported Facts? in Every Single FBI FISA Application He ReviewedThe Justice Department inspector general said it does ?not have confidence? in the FBI?s FISA application process following an audit that found the Bureau was not sufficiently transparent with the court in 29 applications from 2014 to 2019, all of which included ?apparent errors or inadequately supported facts.?Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a report in December which found that the FBI included ?at least 17 significant errors or omissions in the Carter Page FISA applications and many errors in the Woods Procedures? during its Crossfire Hurricane investigation of the 2016 Trump campaign. After releasing the report, Horowitz said that he would conduct a further investigation to see if the errors identified in the Page application were widespread.?The concern is that this is such a high-profile, important case. If it happened here, is this indicative of a wider problem ? and we will only know that when we complete our audit ? or is it isolated to this event?? Horowitz told lawmakers during a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing. ?Obviously, we need to do the work to understand that.?Horowitz?s office said in a report released Tuesday that of the 29 applications ? all of which involved U.S. citizens ? that were pulled from ?8 FBI field offices of varying sizes,? the FBI could not find Woods Files for four of the applications, while the other 25 all had ?apparent errors or inadequately supported facts.?"While our review of these issues and follow-up with case agents is still ongoing?and we have not made materiality judgments for these or other errors or concerns we identified?at this time we have identified an average of about 20 issues per application reviewed, with a high of approximately 65 issues in one application and less than 5 issues in another application," the report reveals.The Woods Procedure dictates that the Justice Department verify the accuracy and provide evidentiary support for all facts stated in its FISA application. The FBI is required to share with the FISA Court all relevant information compiled in the Woods File when applying for a surveillance warrant.?FBI and NSD officials we interviewed indicated to us that there were no efforts by the FBI to use existing FBI and NSD oversight mechanisms to perform comprehensive, strategic assessments of the efficacy of the Woods Procedures or FISA accuracy, to include identifying the need for enhancements to training and improvements in the process, or increased accountability measures,? the report states.The OIG concludes by recommending that the FBI "systematically and regularly examine the results of past and future accuracy reviews to identify patterns or trends in identified errors" relating to the Woods Procedure, as well as double-checking "that Woods Files exist for every FISA application submitted to the FISC in all pending investigations."In a letter acknowledging the audit, FBI Associate Deputy Director Paul Abbate said that the issues "will be addressed" by the Bureau's already-issued correctives after the Carter Page review, and added that "the FBI fully accepts the two recommendations."President Trump has relentlessly attacked the FBI's FISA process and the abuses it allowed during the surveilling of his 2016 campaign. He has argued that the FISA abuses invalidate the entire investigation, which he has referred to as an ?illegal attempted coup,? and slammed the officials involved, including former FBI director James Comey and former acting FBI director Andy McCabe.McCabe admitted in January that the FBI has an ?inherent weakness in the process? of obtaining FISA warrants.
