How a criminal investigation in Georgia set an ominous tone for African-American voters

Nancy Dennard was in a festive holiday mood when police arrived at her front door in the early morning of Dec. 21, 2010. Her son’s birthday, on Christmas Eve, was three days away, and he was supposed to arrive in town the next day. Dennard, a county school board member who had just turned 50 and recently helped elect a slate of new candidates, slept in that morning and was still in bed when her husband left for work a little after 7 a.m. She thought it odd when he returned a few minutes later to wake her. “There’s some people here that want to see you,” he told her. “They’re law enforcement.” Dennard was taken away in handcuffs, placed in a squad car and spirited into the police station. — Yahoo!

'Headline was flawed': New York Times changed headline about Trump speech after backlash

A photo of the front page of Tuesday's New York Times sparked immediate criticism on Monday night — including from several 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. The headline read "Trump urges unity vs. racism." It comes after President Donald Trump addressed the nation after mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, that killed nine and 22 people, respectively. The headline ran in the Times' first print edition and was changed in subsequent editions, The Times told USA TODAY in a statement Tuesday. The original headline didn't sit well with a number of Democrats. — USA Today

I ate 8 chicken sandwiches from fast-food chains, and the best was also the cheapest

Chicken sandwiches are a privilege. My dad did not eat a chicken sandwich until he immigrated to America in his mid-20s. His first chicken sandwich, which was later also my first chicken sandwich, was a McChicken. There are no McChicken sandwiches in this taste test. The culture of immigrants is a culture of always trying to do better than the generation before. My dad ate McChicken sandwiches. I, as a member of the next generation, had to find a better chicken sandwich — maybe even the best fast-food chicken sandwich out there. I put together a list of the chicken sandwiches from the eight fast-food chains closest to Business Insider's office in Manhattan. — Business Insider

Man bitten while prying open gator’s jaws to rescue his dog; gator captured

A man didn’t hesitate to jump into a canal in Sarasota County on Friday to rescue his dog from an alligator. An officer with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) tells ABC7 that around 5 p.m. the man was inside his home on the 100 block of Margaret Drive in Nokomis, his chocolate lab outside, when he heard a commotion coming from the canal behind his home. The man rushed outside to find his dog in the canal with an alligator. Without pausing, the man jumped into the canal and pried open the gator’s jaws to rescue his dog, pulling the dog to safety. — WWSB ABC 7
