SUMMARY: Dallas Police released body cam footage of officers fatally shooting Cody Watkins after he lunged at them with a knife. The incident unfolded following a 911 call from a woman stating Watkins was armed with knives and a machete, threatening her at an encampment. Officers intervened, rescuing the woman, but Watkins did not comply despite multiple de-escalation attempts using pepper spray, a taser, and non-lethal weapons. Watkins eventually lunged at the officers, prompting them to open fire. Watkins, with a history of criminal offenses, was killed, while the woman sustained minor injuries and the incident remains under investigation.

Police were called to the 5800 block of Belt Line Road on Friday night by a woman who said a man with knives and a machete was hurting and threatening her.

SUMMARY: Former President Donald Trump narrowly escaped injury when a gunman opened fire at a rally near Pittsburgh, killing a spectator. The 20-year-old gunman bought 50 rounds of ammo hours prior and fired from a nearby rooftop. The Secret Service faces scrutiny for inadequate preparation and resource allocation, failing to secure the rooftop. Retired agent Robert Cabano criticized both local law enforcement and the Secret Service for their inaction. Despite agents' best efforts during the incident, Cabano fears law enforcement complacency and thin resources might lead to repeated incidents unless public attitudes toward violence change.

The investigation is only beginning following this weekend's assassination attempt on former President Trump at a rally in Pennsylvania. Criticism of the Secret Service is ramping up with mounting questions about how prepared the agency was.
