(WFLA) -- A friendly black bear in Oregon has been euthanized because of its sociable behavior, officials said.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife said the bear had been seen near a popular boat ramp at a lake in Scoggins Valley Park, which is about 34 miles west of Portland, and had become habituated to the area.

"Law enforcement became aware of interactions between the bear and humans after some individuals took "selfie" photographs of themselves and the bear and posted them on social media. Over the past week, officers were called to the same area several times where individuals had left food for the animal," wildlife officials said in a press release.

Local law enforcement officials were called to the area after receiving two calls about the bear and warned visitors to stay away.

How does one go bankrupt running a casino?  That failure alone should have told people he was not a good businessman.  But we really know why people follow him. Racism.

You people need to stay on topic and stop using your handler's off topic talking points.

Actually it doesn't.  A white cop is more likely to be shot by a white person.

:shrug: Not sure what it is about the ROK and U. S. military personnel, but my grandson ended up in Leavenworth for 5yrs behind shenanigans over there.  :no:

The fruit doesn't fall far from the tree. 

All my family members came back from Korea with at least a Commendation Medal.

A pair of anti-Trump protesters directed racist abuse at Fox News contributor Lawrence Jones at a New York City rally over the weekend.

Jones, the editor-in-chief of Campus Reform, was interviewing participants at the demonstration held by the NYC Coalition to Impeach Donald Trump at Foley Square in Lower Manhattan on Saturday when he was heckled.

Jones said Monday night that the men who insulted him Saturday were "upset" and "fearful."

"They know that with our reports and exposing the poverty and the failure of policies that all these Democrat cities have been doing to many people that look like me... they believe that all black people need to think the same way. They want us to stay on the welfare system so we can't progress in life and I'm going to expose it every single day," Jones said. "If they think I'm going to stand down because they yelled obscene things to me, they got another think coming."

The U.S. military has lifted its long-standing curfew for troops on the Korean Peninsula, if the roughly 28,500 U.S. service members can behave.

The curfew is being lifted for 90 days by Army Gen. Robert Abrams, commander of all troops on the peninsula, from June 17 to Sep. 17.

The suspension will serve as an evaluation period to assess whether the curfew can be lifted permanently. It is an opportunity to demonstrate U.S. troops’ ability to maintain good order and discipline at all times and under all conditions, the command said in a statement this weekend.

Part of the reason for testing a lift of the curfew is to increase the quality of life for troops stationed in South Korea.

“South Korea is an assignment of choice with countless regional and cultural opportunities for assigned personnel. The intent of the curfew suspension is to provide [U.S. Forces-Korea] personnel greater access to all Korea has to offer,” Col. Jonathan Doyle, U.S. Forces-Korea provost marshal, said.

“Our professional service members will act in accordance with our standards of conduct and Korean laws at all times," Doyle added.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement pilot of new rapid DNA testing at the border has found that nearly a third of those tested were not biologically related to the children in their custody.

ICE conducted the pilot for a few days earlier this month in El Paso and McAllen, Texas, finding about 30 per cent of those tested were not related to the children they claimed were their own, an official told the Washington Examiner.

The official said that these were not cases of step-fathers or adoptive parents.

'Those were not the case. In these cases, they are misrepresented as family members,' the official said.

So is TSU being equated as the "Hampton" of the swac???

Hampton's move to the BigSouth can't be measured as of yet. But we do know that they spent less money traveling this year in-conference play and they've won several rings already.  But will the fans come back to support home games this year.

Fans of Hampton will show up.  Fans of the other teams might not. Nmn

The Supreme Court on Monday threw out a ruling against two Oregon bakers who refused to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple.

The couple, Melissa and Aaron Klein, cited religious beliefs as their reason for not providing services for a gay wedding. This touched off the latest in a series of such cases making headlines in recent years. During the court's last term, justices ruled in favor of a Colorado baker in a similar situation, stating that a state body demonstrated improper hostility toward the baker's religion in finding that he violated a state anti-discrimination law.

And if the Blue Jays ever won the World Series, should they do the same? As with all NBA teams, "the North" won with predominantly US players. There is nothing wrong with them visiting both capitals if a invitation is extended.

They are based in Canada.  The Spurs won a championship with a cast of foreign players. They didn't hopscotch over the globe meeting heads of states.   

If the Blue Jays win a World Series anytime soon they'll do it with players from the Caribbean and Latin America.

Looking at recent events over the years and most recently this past weekend. I wanted to pose a question: Why do you think "rogue" police see Black Americans as such an immediate lethal threat?

This has always been the case. Modern technology has allowed us to see this happening outside of our local community.

These cops know they will have the support of the department and local elected officials. Take Phoenix for example.  The chief and mayor spent more time talking about the language than the use of force.

They do it because they know they will not be held accountable. 

We've had troops in Afghanistan since since 2001. Soldiers go outside the wire every day.  18 and 19 year old privates.  They are in fear for their lives 24/7. Rarely do they point a weapon at the wrong person. Let alone fire a round. They know they'd be held accountable.

The culture of law enforcement and the courts has to change. If judges give light sentences to the cops we need to vote them out. If the DA can't get a conviction he/she has to go.

Just the language should get the cops fired. If the mayor's secretary talked to someone like that she'd been fired.  It's a double standard.  It has to stop.

The Toronto Raptors are set to have their NBA championship victory parade Monday but a decision has yet to be made about whether the team will end up visiting the White House.

The mayor of Ottawa – Canada’s capital – tweeted Friday that the Raptors should skip the White House visit and head directly to the city instead to visit the country’s parliament.

“Hey @Raptors  forget the White House for a victory lap. Come to Ottawa and parliament hill so Canada can congratulate you!  How about it @JustinTrudeau,” Mayor Jim Watson wrote.

It wasn’t clear whether the Raptors will be invited to the White House. President Trump hasn’t tweeted about the Raptors since the team defeated the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals last week.

Previously in 2017, Trump rescinded a White House invitation to the Warriors after they won the title. Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant both had made remarks critical of the president’s administration.
