Bumble Match Turns in Capitol Riot Suspect (Again)


A man in Texas suspected of taking part in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot was arrested Friday after a match on the Bumble dating app turned him in to authorities. Andrew Taake of Houston opened up the app while he was in Washington early this year. The unnamed match asked Taake if he was "near all the action" and Taake said he was there "from the very beginning." Taake claimed he had spent 30 minutes in the Capitol and was pepper-sprayed while "peacefully standing there." He also shared a selfie and said it was taken "about 30 minutes after being sprayed."

Heavy Metal Confronts Its Nazi Problem

The New Yorker

"The world is on fire," Ben Hutcherson told an audience in Brooklyn, last month, before a set by his band, Glacial Tomb. He added, "At least we can all burn together." Over the next thirty minutes, the band, which Hutcherson describes as playing "blackened, sludgy death metal," roared through a half-dozen songs, replete with thundering drums and growled vocals. The set ended with a broadside of defiance, in the form of a cover of the punk band Aus-Rotten's "Fuck Nazi Sympathy." As Glacial Tomb sped through the song--which includes the lines "Don't respect something that has no respect" and "Don't give them their freedom, because they're not going to give you yours"--audience members shouted the lyrics, churned in a mosh pit, and dove from the stage.

Fox News exclusively obtained a draft copy of the task force's recommendations; Lucas Tomlinson reports. A federal judge in Texas ruled Friday that a former Marine accused of dousing at least 15 police officers with a chemical spray outside the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 and bragging about it later on video will remain in custody, according to a report. Daniel Ray Caldwell, 49, of The Colony, Texas, will stay behind bars until his trial in Washington, D.C., The Dallas Morning News reported. After hearing testimony during several detention hearings in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Magistrate Judge Kimberly Priest Johnson decided no conditions of release would "reasonably assure the safety" of the community. Caldwell was arrested by FBI agents on Feb. 10 at Texas Instruments, his place of employment in Richardson, Texas, authorities said.
