  Electric vehicles and biofuel: Pentagon poised to go greener under Biden "Where the military goes, the civilian world often follows," says one influential player helping to shape the policy.The Biden administration has made clear from the beginning that combating climate change is a top priority — and the Pentagon, the world’s single largest energy consumer, has a key role to play. The military has a record of developing new policies intended to curb greenhouse gases, and a massive budget of roughly $700 billion annually to carry them out.

The Pentagon officer who allegedly fatally shot two men he believed were breaking into cars in the parking lot of a condominium on Wednesday has been pictured in his Pentagon Force Protection Agency photo. The Pentagon cop told DC police that he made a failed attempt to wrestle a BB gun out of the teen's hands, and then pulled out his own service weapon and fired a single shot . The 16- year -old survived and was later charged as a juvenile with assault with intent to commit an armed robbery.

David Hall Dickson is charged with the murder of Dominique Williams, 32, and James Lionel Johnson, 38. The two were shot and killed in Maryland after Dickson, an off-duty Pentagon police officer thought they were trying to break into a car.

I'm Ellen Mitchell, and here's your nightly guide to the latest developments at the Pentagon, on Capitol Hill and beyond. CLICK HERE to subscribe to the newsletter.THE TOPLINE: HHS asks Pentagon for use of third base to house migrant childrenThe Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has asked the Pentagon to temporarily house unaccompanied migrant children at another military base, this one in California, the Defense Department's top spokesman confirmed Thursday.

The Pentagon released a statement after an off-duty officer was charged with 2nd-degree murder for shooting and killing two men in Maryland on Wednesday. The car belonged to a friend who was with Williams and Johnson when the officer started shooting , the attorney for one of the victims said, according to the local outlet. “Our investigation revealed that Mr. Dixon's overview of events was inconsistent with the facts in the case and that Mr. Dixon had no lawful or justifiable reason to shoot and kill Mr. Williams and Mr. Johnson,” Takoma Park Police Chief Antonio DeVaul.

Elliot was convicted of murder and sentenced to 15 years -to-life in prison. He was denied parole twice — first at a February 2017 hearing and again in December 2018, according to a state Department of Corrections official. But the following year , he was approved for release in September and sprung on lifetime parole two months later. “When New York politicians and their parole board think it’s a good idea to release a murderer who killed his mother — they certainly can’t pretend to be surprised he brutally attacked a woman in Midtown,” he said.

Dixon had reportedly told the woman to exit the building after a series of disruptions. When she did not, he returned to his apartment and brought back what appeared to be a shotgun. He pointed the weapon at her and repeated his commands to vacate the premises, and she did, wheeling a red shopping cart out with her. Dixon followed her through the doors. He did not fire the gun.

Dixon, an officer with the Pentagon Force Protection Agency since 2019, has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder for allegedly killing Dominique Williams, a 32-year-old Hyattsville resident, and James Lionel Johnson, a 38-year-old District Heights resident, in the parking lot of the same building.

Oklahoma police detective Michael Nealey, 49, charged with murdering Mannford Police Chief Lucky Miller in Florida Sunday. Maintenance worker at Hilton Garden Inn was looking into a noise complaint when he walked in on Nealey sitting on top of Miller's body and mumbling. He could hear grunting noises, so he said he opened the door and saw Nealey on top of Miller. The report said the man yelled for Nealey to get up. When he didn't, the maintenance worker pulled him off, using such force that Nealey's nose and lip were injured. When deputies arrived, Nealey was 'just mumbling' unintelligible

Mississippi cop is caught dumping homeless woman from his jurisdiction in Jackson - as city's mayor says it's first proof of what's been happening for a 'long time'. Surveillance video dated Saturday shows a Ridgeland, Mississippi, police car pull into a parking lot in Jackson before a cop and a woman get out. Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba says suburban police have been dropping off homeless people in the city 'for a long time'. Ridgeland Mayor Gene McGee acknowledged his police picked up the woman after she was 'harassing' people in his suburb and then drove her to Jackson.

Dixon was arrested Friday and remains in jail without bond. He has been placed on administrative leave from the Pentagon Force.

Relatives described the two victims as best friends. Johnson was a father of three, including an infant. His cousin Marcus Cornegay said in a press conference on Friday: “He treated everyone that crossed his path with love and respect, like they were family. We as a family are really struggling with this trying to put logic around why he was taken from us.”

A family attorney, David Haynes, said Johnson and Williams were “shot and killed in cold blood, for no reason, with no justification.”

Takoma Park Police said that when their officers arrived on the scene at about 5 a.m. Wednesday morning, Dixon approached them and said he’d seen what be “thought” was an attempted car theft.

Pentagon outlines steps to counter military extremism as Capitol attack continues to reverberate

  Pentagon outlines steps to counter military extremism as Capitol attack continues to reverberate At least 38 of about 250 people charged in the attack on the U.S. Capitol served in the military. The Pentagon plans to counter military extremism.Austin's memo is the latest step to address the thorny issue of extremism among current and former members of the military. In February, he ordered a one-day "stand down" for military leaders to cease all other activities and focus on training troops in how to spot and address extremism.

Suspected serial killer accused of murdering three homeless men in San Diego 'drove railroad spikes into their head, chest and eyes and used a hammer in brutal attacks'. A San Diego man who allegedly killed three homeless men and injured two others used a railroad spike and hammer in all five of his attacks, prosecutors revealed. Jon Guerrero, 39, was arrested in July after police officers heard his fifth victim screaming for help. He has been charged with murder , attempted murder and arson.

Gargiulo is also accused of the attempted murder of Michelle Murphy, then 26, at her Santa Monica home in 2008. On Friday, a jury recommended the death sentence for Gargiulo dubbed 'The Boy Next Door Killer'. Kutcher testified that the pair last spoke at 8.24pm when he told Ellerin he was running late and she told him she had just gotten out of the shower. When he arrived at her Hollywood home very late, he said he got no answer when he knocked on the door.

According to charging documents reported on by The Washington Post, Dixon identified himself as an off-duty Pentagon officer and told the police that he was leaving for work when he noticed a Lexus, with its headlights off, driving through the parking lot.

He said he saw one of the men in the Lexus trying to break the window of another car in the parking lot earlier. He said he confronted the men in the Lexus but they “gassed it,” and attempted to run him over, prompting him to open fire.

But surveillance footage showed Dixon firing as the car drove away, the charging documents say.

While authorities determined that an attempted car theft had indeed taken place, they said the car with the three men inside “no longer presented an immediate threat that would have justified the use of deadly force.”

Takoma Park Police Chief Antonio DeVaul said on Friday that Dixon had “no lawful or justifiable reason” for firing his service weapon: “He was a civilian who acted as a civilian, who happened to be a law enforcement officer in another jurisdiction.”

DeVaul added that Dixon’s overview of events “was inconsistent with the evidence and facts in the case.”

‘Clear the Capitol,’ Pence pleaded, timeline of riot shows

  ‘Clear the Capitol,’ Pence pleaded, timeline of riot shows WASHINGTON (AP) — From a secure room in the Capitol on Jan. 6, as rioters pummeled police and vandalized the building, Vice President Mike Pence tried to assert control. In an urgent phone call to the acting defense secretary, he issued a startling demand. “Clear the Capitol,” Pence said. Elsewhere in the building, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi were making a similarly dire appeal to military leaders, asking the Army to deploy the National Guard. “We need help,” Schumer, D-N.Y., said in desperation, more than an hour after the Senate chamber had been breached.

Williams and Johnson were driven to nearby St. George’s hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds in their upper backs, wounds a medical examiner said were consistent with being fired on from behind. Both died there.

A third man, Michael Thomas, 36, was driving the car. Dixon faces additional charges of attempted second-degree murder for opening fire on Thomas, as well as reckless endangerment and use of a handgun in commission of a felony. Thomas has not been charged with a crime.

Dixon is not alone on the Pentagon Force in drawing his service weapon while off-duty. Another officer shot a 16-year-old he alleged was robbing him the evening of March 24 in Washington, D.C.

The acting director of the bureau said leaders would conduct trainings in response to both incidents “to ensure [officers] have a full understanding of their off-duty responsibilities.”
