South Carolina's Senate Takes A Step Towards Banning The Confederate Flag At The Capitol!

Filed under: PolitikNewsControversy

South Carolina senate votes to remove the Confederate flag.

South Carolina's state senate made a big move on Monday, getting one step closer to banning the Confederate flag from their Capitol.

In a landslide decision, the senate voted 37-3 to take it down. But, the fight isn't over quite yet.

Before the flag can officially be lowered, the Senate has to vote one more time, and then the bill has to go to the South Carolina House.

The proposal to remove the it came as a result of last month's devastating shooting at Charleston's Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, where nine black people were shot to death because of racist beliefs.

South Carolina governor Nikki Haley is thrilled that the Senate stepped up to bring down the banner, saying in a statement:

"The South Carolina Senate today rose to this historic occasion, with a large majority of members from both parties coming together in the spirit of unity and healing that is binding our state back together and moving us forward in the right direction."

But even with the governor backing the decision, there's a possibility the House might not vote the same way as the Senate.

So, Nikki pleaded with her state's other political institution to follow suit:

"I applaud the Senate's decisive action, look forward to the Senate giving the bill third reading in the morning, and ask that the House act swiftly and follow the Senate's lead."

The Senate won't be convening again until Tuesday, but we really hope all the necessary votes go through to make this change happen!

We were hoping there would've been some hacked propos from the rebellion, but we'll probably have to wait a little bit before those come out!

Capitol Hill Scare: Police Provide Further Details; Child Confirmed On The Scene

Filed under: PolitikViolence

car chase(1)

Thursday afternoon, Capitol police held a press conference to address the incident at Capitol Hill.

After giving their conference, we now know the following:

This afternoon there was a suspicious vehicle that attempted to pass a barricade at the White House to drive onto the lawn. Realizing something was wrong, the vehicle was then attempted to be stopped by the Secret Service. Shots were fired, and as SS continued to pursue the vehicle, the suspect then struck one of the police cars before crashing into the barricade.

As an act of caution, law enforcement put surrounding buildings on lockdown — those of which have now been released.

As far as the suspect, they can confirm that the suspect was female but can not attest to her current condition. They also believe there was a child present, and they believe the child is fine.

Capitol police then confirmed the police officer that was believed to have been shot in the situation was actually struck by the car. Fortunately, he appears to be conscious and breathing.

What caused this? So far, there is nothing to link this to terrorism. This is an isolated incident, they believe, but they are still collecting more facts before they release further information.

Capitol Hill Scare: Female Suspect Reportedly Rammed Barricade At White House, Details Below

Filed under: Violence

car chase

Thursday afternoon saw quite the scare in the Capitol, as gunfire erupted, causing a swarm of emergency respondents to appear in the area and address the emergency that locked down Congress.

While details were scarce before, we're now learning that the Secret Service says the female suspect slammed into a gate on the south side of White House, and then she fled to the Capitol.

She was initially pursued for suspicious driving, and as her move to the White House became apparent, the Secret Service got involved and she was then reportedly pursued by them.

Amidst this, police also enacted force as she got closer to the White House. And this is where the presumed shots were fired. As news got to the Capitol, it is believed that's when the lockdown was presumably enacted.

So far, there was one injury to a police officer reported, though no further details are available at this time.

House and Senate sessions were immediately suspended. Stay tuned for more updates.
