Judge rips Iowa police chief for using stun gun on partiers

  Judge rips Iowa police chief for using stun gun on partiers IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — A judge has condemned an Iowa police chief for using his city-issued stun gun to shock guests at two parties in 2016, calling it an “immoral activity” that could have caused serious injuries or death. Judge Nancy Whittenburg recently rejected arguments by Craig Merrill, the police chief in Armstrong, that his deployment of the Taser device in an off-duty, social setting against voluntary participants was not a criminal act. "Merrill did not have justification to use a defensive weapon with the intent to cause pain for entertainment purposes on compliant partygoers," Whittenburg wrote in a ruling dated Thursday, May 27, 2021.

Severe weather alerts might be annoying but they’re necessary. If bad weather is bad enough that it could cause potential injuries or fatalities, it’s important for local news affiliates to keep the public alert and safe even if some people may complain that they can’t watch what they wanted to.

Having said that, an Iowa NBC affiliate picked one of the most pivotal moments of the U.S. Open to cut in with a severe weather alert.

As Louis Oosthuizen approached his par putt on 17, he needed to sink the putt to remain a stroke behind clubhouse leader Jon Rahm. Oosthuizen made contact, the ball rolled toward the hole, and as the ball reached a few feet from the hole, WHO 13 in Des Moines interrupted with their weather report.

Irina Shayk Once Described Kanye West as 'Rare': Relationship Timeline

  Irina Shayk Once Described Kanye West as 'Rare': Relationship Timeline Kanye West and Irina Shayk’s relationship may come as a surprise to some, but as it turns out, their romance wasn’t so random after all. Three years before Kim Kardashian was featured in then-love West’s music video for “Bound 2,” Shayk was his video girl for his 2010 track “Power.” The duo teamed up again in 2012 when the Grammy winner enlisted the model to walk in one of his fashion shows. “When I got a request to participate in the show, I was very thrilled and agreed immediately. I consider Kanye West to be one of those rare people that bring new ideas into the world,” Shayk gushed to Popsugar at the time. “He brought art into music, and now he is releasing his passion for fashion and I think that it’s absolutely amazing! It does not happen to many of musicians. He has a good eye for fashion and he is not scared to try new things.” It would be several years before the pair were romantically linked, with West marrying Kardashian in 2014 and welcoming four kids: North (born 2013), Saint (2015), Chicago (2018) and Psalm (2019). Shayk, meanwhile, welcomed daughter Lea with then-boyfriend Bradley Cooper in 2017. Coincidentally enough, both Kardashian and Shayk were both linked to Cristiano Ronaldo before their relationships with West. While Us Weekly reported in April 2010 that the Selfish author was seen kissing the soccer star, Shayk dated him for five years, ending their relationship in 2015.

This might’ve been hilarious for those of us who don’t live in Iowa but I’m sure this resulted in some upset golf fans. In fairness to the station, with a tornado touching down nearby and causing damage, it’s for the best that people might miss the end of a golf tournament to better ensure public safety. Though in this instance, they probably could’ve waited just one more second so viewers could see Oosthuizen miss his putt.

With the missed putt, Oosthuizen fell two shots behind and despite hitting a birdie on 18, Rahm won his first major by a single stroke.

Nikki Haley tests Iowa waters while base yearns for Trump .
Nikki Haley took top billing at the Republican Party of Iowa's Lincoln Dinner Thursday night, decrying what she called Democrats' "socialist" agenda and calling for a boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics as she became the latest potential 2024 contender to lay her marker in the first-in-the-nation caucus state. But Haley and the other Republicans eying the White House are facing one very big hurdle: former President Donald Trump hasn't moved on, and neither have his voters.
