  • A group of 'furries' is being credited with saving a San Jose woman who was being assaulted. The incident occurred over the weekend as FurCon -- San Jose's convention for people who like to dress in furry animal costumes -- was letting out for the evening, police say. One of the convention's attendees, who wasn't in costume, was with a group of furry friends when he heard a commotion from a vehicle parked on the side of the street. 'It was pretty intense,' says 26-year-old Steven Rodriguez. 'We saw the passenger just whaling on her. Just a full-on punch.' So Rodriguez and another man pulled the assailant out of the vehicle, only for the man to attack them, Rodriguez says. That's when the furries took action. A pink dinosaur, a tiger, a cat and a platform shoes-wearing cowboy grabbed the man, threw him to the ground and sat on him until police arrived, according to an incident report. Mobile users see video here. *WARNING: VULGAR LANGUAGE USED* Demetri Hardnett, 22, was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence.

  • Folks around the nation continue to remember and honor the legacy and life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. However, there is one fact that you probably didn't know- Dr. King actually paid a visit to the City Beautiful. According to the Orange County Regional History Center website, Dr. King made the trip to Orlando on March 6, 1964. During that time, Reverend Curtis J. Jackson, pastor at the Shiloh Baptist Church and NAACP Youth Council adviser had a hard time getting de-segregation laws passed following the assassination of President Kennedy. Another fun fact, Pastor Jackson and Dr. King had attended Morehouse College together.  Dr. King's trip was from an invitation by Pastor Jackson. While in Orlando, King held two separate workshops at the Shiloh Baptist Church and met with then Mayor Bob Carr and a delegation from the black community at City Hall to discuss the creation of a bi-racial community to help end segregation in the city.  Later that night, Dr. King spoke at a rally to over 2,000 people from the pitcher's mount at Tinker Field. This marked the first time that members of the black community were allowed to sit in the 'whites only' grandstand. Those who were there that night recalled what was described as 'a powerful speech that moved everyone.

  • A GOP rules plan for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump unveiled by Senate Republicans on Monday could pave the way for the trial to be finished in as little as two weeks, as the plan envisions squeezing 48 hours of opening arguments into just four days, with the option of voting on the impeachment articles without any additional witnesses or evidence. 'Just because the House proceedings were a circus that doesn’t mean the Senate’s trial needs to be,' said Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), who fully endorsed the proposal from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. While GOP Senators said the plan would be modeled on a bipartisan rules deal at the start of the Clinton impeachment trial, there were two notable differences from 21 years ago, governing opening arguments, and the submission of evidence. While each side would get 24 hours to make their opening arguments, this GOP plan would force that time to be used in just two days - raising the specter of an impeachment trial which could stretch well into the night because of those time constraints. Another change would require an affirmative vote by the Senate to simply put the investigatory materials from the House into the trial record, something which was done automatically in the Clinton impeachment trial. Also, even if extra witnesses were approved by Senators, it would not guarantee their testimony on the Senate floor, as there would have to be a vote after the depositions on whether the witness would testify publicly. With a Tuesday debate set on the rules, Republicans also made clear they would not support any move to add witnesses until after opening arguments have been completed. 'If attempts are made to vote on witnesses prior to opening arguments, I would oppose those efforts,' said Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT). Meanwhile, Democrats roundly denounced the GOP rules details. 'The proposal that Majority Leader McConnell just released looks more like a cover up than a fair trial,' said Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE). 'Mitch McConnell doesn't want a fair trial, he wants a fast trial,' said Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI). 'It's all about the cover up,' said Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT). 'These are not the Clinton rules.' 'There’s nothing in this resolution that requires hearing witnesses or admitting evidence — which is unlike any trial I’ve ever seen,' said Sen. Tina Smith (D-MN). 'Under this resolution, Senator McConnell is saying he doesn’t want to hear any of the existing evidence, and he doesn’t want to hear any new evidence,' said Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer, who promised to offer amendments to the plan on Tuesday afternoon. Debate and votes on the rules resolution will start on Tuesday afternoon - and could turn into an extended battle on the floor of the U.S. Senate.
