The California man who was separated from his wife in the chaotic moments of Thursday’s terrorist attack in Barcelona, Spain, was among the 13 killed at the scene, his family said Friday.

The father of 42-year-old Jared Tucker, Dan Tucker, told NBC News that Tucker’s wife, Heidi Nunes, confirmed her husband’s death. The Walnut Creek couple were in Europe celebrating their first wedding anniversary and had just enjoyed drinks on Barcelona’s wide, largely pedestrianized tourist street of La Rambla when their relaxing vacation was shattered by sharp cries.

“Next thing I know there’s screaming, yelling,” Nunes, a 40-year-old teacher, earlier told NBC News. “I got pushed inside the souvenir kiosk and stayed there hiding while everybody kept running by screaming.”

A neo-Nazi’s rage-fueled journey to Charlottesville

Late in his senior year of high school, James A. Fields Jr. was excitedly mapping his future, hoping to join the Army right after graduation. Although his political and social views ran counter to American values — he much preferred authoritarianism and the racial­purity dogma of the Third Reich — Fields looked forward to soldiering in democracy’s most powerful military.

That’s how Derek Weimer, his favorite teacher in 2015, remembers it.

Then one day in that spring semester, Fields told Weimer that the Army had turned him down for a reason related to his psychiatric history, Weimer recalled this week. Weimer wasn’t surprised by the rejection, he said, because Fields had confided to him a year earlier that he suffered from schizophrenia and was being treated with drugs to control his illness.

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s list of hate groups

.

That’s the number of hate groups operating in the US, according to data from the Southern Poverty Law Center. The Alabama-based nonprofit activist group tracks civil rights and hate crimes and defines a hate group as an organization with “beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics.”
.
“Over the course of a year, we have a team of investigators that scours the internet for racist publications and real world activities to find out which groups exist, which groups are still active and which groups come along,” said Ryan Lenz, a senior investigative reporter for the SPLC’s Hatewatch project.
.
Some are classified as anti-LGBT groups, and some are black separatists, who don’t believe in interracial marriage and want a nation only for black people, according to the group.

A Florida day care center employee is expected to face charges after a 3-year-old boy was found dead in a parked van, police in Orlando said Tuesday.

Myles Hill was found on the floor at the back of the van parked at the Little Miracles Academy day care center around 6:30 p.m. on Monday, police told reporters. Police Chief John Mina said authorities believe he had been in the vehicle since around 9 a.m. that morning. The high temperature in Orlando on Monday was about 93 degrees Fahrenheit, according to Weather Underground.
.
The cause of Myles’ death has not been determined, but Mina said that based on the evidence, it is believed to be heat-related. “This was an absolute tragedy that could have been prevented,” Mina told reporters on Tuesday.

Here, heroin spares no one, not even the sheriff’s wife

Robert Leahy was sitting on his couch, watching TV, when his wife, Gretchen, walked through the front door.

It was about 10 p.m. She’d left for the grocery store hours earlier. Now, she “bumbled” about the room, Leahy says, incoherent and vacant. He’d seen her like this before.
.
“What the f**k are you doing?” he asked. “You’re high.”
  
After the initial shock wore off, Leahy was angry and embarrassed. He worried about his reputation and what his colleagues at the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office would think. He’d been a law enforcement officer for more than a decade, and now he was married to a heroin addict.
.
He needed to save himself and their young son. He had done all he could to save her.

The Trigger and the Choice – Part 3

Part 3: The officers of the Buffalo Police Department went more than four years and 2 million calls without a fatal shooting. What did they do right?

This city gets heavy snow in the winter, hard rain in the summer, and the occasional gun falling from the sky. Maybe it clatters onto a roof, or clangs into a garbage can, or splashes down in an open field. Wherever it falls, two men may come looking for it: Officers Mark Hamilton and Michael Acquino, who confiscate more illegal guns than any other pair in the Buffalo Police Department.

These transactions often start on the sidewalk, when someone acts just a little off: talking too fast, volunteering too much information, pretending to be on the phone, and maybe they reach for the waistband, and maybe they start to run. This is when the evidence goes airborne. The average loaded handgun weighs about two pounds, roughly six times as much as a baseball. You’d be surprised how far a man on parole can make one fly.

The Trigger and the Choice – Part 2

Part 2: Did one police shooting help raise the nationwide homicide rate? Observers disagree. But three years later, Ferguson and metro St. Louis are still paying a terrible price.

Noon, Saturday, summer 2014, and there is still a chance to prevent the disaster. Nothing is burning, no one killed here today, and the officer’s gun remains in the holster. The sequence begins when he sees two men on Canfield Drive and tells them to get on the sidewalk.
.
The small man says, “We are almost to our destination.”
.
The officer says, “Well, what’s wrong with the sidewalk?”
.
The big man says, “F— what you have to say.”

This is not the pivotal moment. Not yet. As the two men walk past his cruiser, the officer notices cigarillos in the big man’s right hand. He notices the small man’s black shirt. He remembers a call on the radio about stolen cigarillos and a suspect in a black shirt.
