Authorities were continuing to hunt for a suspect Saturday in the “execution-style” shooting of a uniformed Texas sheriff’s deputy, while warning that “dangerous rhetoric” against law enforcement has “gotten out of control.”

“We’ve heard black lives matter — all lives matter,” a visibly angry Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman told reporters. “Well, cops’ lives matter, too.”

A person of interest was voluntarily taken in for questioning early Saturday, and authorities said that he was cooperating but did not provide details about his relationship to the case.

Low-cost 3D-printed prosthetics, such as the e-Nable open-source prosthetic hand, are doing wonderful things for amputees. Over time, more groups are attempting their own designs, advancing the technology while keeping costs low.

Open Bionics from Bristol, England, and its Dextrus design, originally funded on Indiegogo, is so streamlined it has just won the James Dyson Award in the UK, putting it in the international final for the student design competition.

Compared to other 3D-printed prosthetics available, the Dextrus hand has been designed to look much more like a human hand, with smoothed and rounded contours, and design elements such as knuckles.

Legendary dunker Darryl Dawkins dies

Darryl Dawkins was once summoned in the Philadelphia 76ers’ locker room to meet a celebrity who wanted to meet the man known for dunking with backboard-breaking force.

The guest was Grammy Award winner Stevie Wonder. The entertainer is blind, yet even he could tell there was something unique about Dawkins’ game.

“A guy who never saw me,” a beaming Dawkins said in a 2011 interview, “gave me the name ‘Chocolate Thunder.'”

The name stuck, and the rim-wrecking, glass-shattering dunks remain unforgettable — as will the giant of a man who changed the game with them.

Hold on to something,” Jim Tennant warned as he fired up his tractor. We lurched down a rutted dirt road past the old clapboard farmhouse where he grew up. Jim still calls it “the home place,” although its windows are now boarded up and the outhouse is crumbling into the field.

At 72, Jim is so slight that he nearly disappears into his baggy plaid shirt. But he drives his tractor like a dirt bike. We sped past the caved-in hog pen and skidded down a riverbank. The tractor tipped precariously toward the water, slamming into a fallen tree, but Jim just laughed.

When we had gone as far as the tractor could take us, Jim climbed off and squeezed through a barbed-wire fence. On the other side was a lush field teeming with crabapple and sycamore, and beyond that, the muddy trickle of water, known as Dry Run Creek, that has brought Jim’s family so much heartache. “This is what Dry Run looks like in the wet season,” Jim told me. “Summer grazing was in the hollow up there—before they destroyed everything, at least.”

Slain Reporter’s Father Demands ‘Coward’ Politicians Take Up Gun Control

Andy Parker, the father of slain WDBJ journalist Alison Parker, is demanding that politicians restrict access to firearms, saying he will personally become a crusader for this issue if need be. 

“If I have to be the John Walsh of gun control and — look, I’m for the Second Amendment, but there has to be a way to force politicians that are cowards and in the pockets of the NRA to come to grips and make sense — have sensible laws so that crazy people can’t get guns. It can’t be that hard,” said Parker in an interview with CNN’s “New Day.” 

Walsh created “America’s Most Wanted” and became a prominent victims’ rights advocate after his son was murdered in 1981.

A man described as a disgruntled former colleague gunned down a reporter and cameraman on live television Wednesday morning in Virginia, then posted video of the deadly attack to social media before shooting himself, authorities said.

The suspect, described by the station that fired him as “an unhappy man,” turned the gun on himself hours later, according to federal officials. State police said the suspected gunman was in “very critical condition” but “has a pulse,” WDBJ7 reported.

The gruesome events began to unfold as WDBJ7 correspondent Alison Parker conducted an on-air interview at around 6:45 a.m. at a shopping center in Moneta, Virginia.
