MISSOURI CITY, TX (KTRK) -- Community activists are asking for a federal investigation into alleged misconduct by authorities in Ft. Bend County, but that request was nearly drowned out by a group of bikers last night.
These bikers revved their engines during Quanell X's press conference in front of the Missouri City police station last night. He tried to move his press conference inside the building, but that led to a shoving match.
Quanell X is trying to bring attention to the case of Chad Chadwick. He claims he was wrongfully arrested in a SWAT raid on his home in 2011. Chadwick spent thousands of dollars on legal fees and eventually was cleared of all charges. read more
Over melodramatic music, a son peeks in on his mother, peacefully reading a book on the couch. He then goes to her bedroom, opens a dresser and removes a VERY large pistol (what is that? It looks like a flare gun). He picks it up (and appears to have his finger on the trigger the whole time, by the way) and puts it unsecured (and possibly loaded) into his backpack.
He brings it to school and after class, he approaches the teacher, pulls out the gun (and even appears to inadvertently point it at the terrified teacher) and says "Can you take this away, I don't feel safe with a gun in my house."
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) Mayor Bill de Blasio has been sorrowful and somber in his public appearances since the murders of Officer Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu.

The day before President Barack Obama announced to the world his administration's unilateral decision to normalize trade and diplomatic relations with Cuba, Cuba's Coast Guard sunk a small, rickety boat full of refugees attempting to flee to America.
Among the 32 people on the boat seeking to escape the Communist island dump were two children, the Miami Herald reports.
Fewer Americans born in the U.S. have jobs now than were employed to November 2007, despite a working-age population growth of 11 million.
The amazing drop in employment highlights President Barack Obama's slow recovery from the deep 2008 shock, but also spotlights many companies' growing reliance on foreign migrant labor.
Almost one in every two jobs added since 2009 have gone to foreign-born workers.
