Baltimore Detective Died After Being Shot in the Head With His Own Gun, Police Say Amid Search for Killer

Suiter’s funeral is scheduled for November 29, Davis said. Suiter’s clothing indicated he and the killer had struggled, Davis said. There was also the apparent sound of gunfire in the background of the radio call, Davis said. The grand jury is looking at a corruption case involving several Baltimore officers who were federally indicted in March. Baltimore police released this photo of Detectives Sean Suiter as they announced a reward in the case. Suiter’s partner, also a detective, took cover across the street and called 911 when the gunfire erupted, Davis said. Davis said federal officials told him “in no uncertain terms” that the father of five was not the target of any ongoing criminal investigation. The officer’s DNA was found on the fatal round recovered from the scene, Davis said. A Baltimore homicide detective was fatally shot in the head with his own gun after a struggle with his killer last week, the city’s police commissioner said Wednesday. The officer died the next day at a hospital. “It’s unintelligible right now,” Davis said of the radio call. “There is no information that has been communicated to me that Detective Suiter was anything other than a stellar detective, great friend, loving husband and dedicated father,” Davis said. Davis said Suiter struggled with his killer, making a brief call on his police radio at the time of the killing, Davis said. Suiter was shot in the head at close range, the police commissioner said. “It certainly makes for great theater,” Davis said. Earlier in the week, Davis said he believed the killer was still in the city and he may be wounded. Sean Suiter, 43, was to testify before a grand jury the day after he was killed, Commissioner Kevin Davis said. 39.290385
-76.612189 The reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Suiter’s killer has grown to $215,000. In an apparent attempt to address speculation about a connection between Suiter’s killing and his pending testimony, Davis said the Suiter and his partner were not lured to the scene of the shooting and made a “spontaneous decision” to investigate the suspicious man. … It’s our responsibility really to follow the evidence and there’s no evidence whatsoever.”
In March, several Baltimore officers, members of the department’s Gun Trace Task Force, were accused in a federal racketeering indictment of robbing people, claiming fraudulent overtime and filing false affidavits. The officers first saw the killer acting suspiciously about 20 minutes before Suiter’s fatal encounter, police said. “We don’t know exactly what he said but he was clearly in distress,” Davis said, adding that the FBI is working with the department to enhance the radio transmission. Suiter, an 18-year department veteran, was investigating a killing in west Baltimore on November 15 when he saw a man exhibiting suspicious behaviors, police said. “We have a police officer who’s shot and killed and we don’t have a really good description, and we don’t have someone in custody — and lo and behold … I found out after the fact that he was scheduled to testify in front of a federal grand jury.”
Davis added: “I understand the speculation that exists. The officer was found with the radio still in his hand, the commissioner said.

Taking Time to Think About, Thank Our Troops This Thanksgiving

And they are not ramping down. “Nearly half (46%) of military family respondents ranked time away from family as their top concern.”
I asked military families groups what they wanted to tell America this Thanksgiving, and they told me two words: Remember us. The military families group Blue Star Families reported last week that among the military families who took their survey, about a third said they had dealt with family separation for at least four years since 9/11. They continue to engage the US military, and to affect the American public, even though they make headlines only rarely. “It has been a long war, people are tired, and what military families need from all Americans are support in the workplace of military spouses, support in schools where military kids go to school, support for our recently transitioned military families and just an awareness that our military is still a very busy military facing very dangerous situations.”
As you sit down with family this Thanksgiving, give a moment to all who won’t get to experience time with their loved ones. And another moment to stay engaged with America’s wars, the people who are fighting them and every husband, wife, daughter, son and parent who supports them all year long as they serve their nation. “High rates of family separation continue. It is not only that danger is faced. 38.907192
-77.036871 This Thanksgiving, we should remember that in addition to risking their lives, many service members spend extended time away from their loved ones, @gaylelemmon writes for @CNNopinion

“US military presence in Middle East grew by 33%.”
And it is not just the Middle East that is seeing a boost in troops but also Somalia. But now we are just in this continued uncertain environment, and nobody else outside the military is really noticing this pace of deployment. Let’s take time to think about them, their families and the wars this nation is asking them to fight. “As far as our military families are concerned, we are still a nation at war,” Raezer says. “Number of US troops + DOD civilians in Middle East grew from 40,517 to 54,180 in past 4 mos, according to new DOD data,” Micah Zenko, a senior fellow at Chatham House, shared on Twitter. These post-9/11 conflicts remain unresolved. But milestones are missed. Families are getting really frustrated,” says Joyce Wessel Raezer, executive director of the National Military Family Association. People are saying, ‘We are tired of this.’ ”
And America can do more to help. “When Iraq and Afghanistan were at their peak, we expected it. Thirty-one service members have died so far this year; that is up from 26 in 2016. His numbers came from the latest Department of Defense quarterly personnel report. Time away from family surpassed pay and benefits as top concern for military families,” the survey report said. “Even though we are not at the height of a war, service members are still separated from families and it continues. The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff noted in a recent speech that “as we gather tonight there’s about 275,000 (service members) that are forward deployed and forward engaged, and some of them are in harm’s way.”
Indeed, our nation just marked a grim milestone: For the first time in more than a half-decade, “the number of US troops killed in overseas operations has increased over the previous year,” according to Army Times. Service members are away from their homes and loved ones, missing holidays, birthdays, anniversaries — family gatherings many Americans take for granted. Indeed, two numbers that came to light this week made that clear and give us something to reflect on this Thanksgiving as we sit down for turkey and time with our families. Forty percent said they had faced more than six months of family separation just in the past year and a half. America is still engaged in post-9/11 wars. This Thanksgiving, it is not enough just to thank our troops for their service.

Will Online Shopping Put an End to Black Friday?

“Even those retailers who have survived reasonably well are rationalizing their cost structure and closing stores,” he said. This could be a make-or-break holiday shopping season for some of America’s retailers. Even if all the troubled retail brands make it to the 2018 holiday season, there’s a good chance many of their stores won’t. “There’s no question the retail industry is going through an amazing transformation,” said Ellen Davis, senior vice president of research for the National Retail Federation. People walk past a shopfront on Oxford Street advertising ‘Black Friday’ discounts on November 28, 2014 in London, England. Prominent names such as Toys R Us, Gymboree, Payless Shoes and RadioShack have all filed this year, and Sears Holdings, which owns both the iconic Sears and Kmart chains, has warned there is “substantial doubt” it can remain in business. Some experts say that if the economy encounters even a minor bump in the road, things could quickly go from bad to worse for those struggling retailers. A survey by the National Retail Federation found that 59% of shoppers plan to shop online this year, marking the first time that online is the most popular choice for shoppers.

Economic conditions are good — unemployment is the lowest it’s been in 17 years, and credit is cheap and easily available. “Any kind of economic downturn or even a tick up in interest rates, and their debt becomes unsustainable.”
Groups representing retailers say most of their members are making the changes they need to survive long term. “Department stores are struggling to prove they are still relevant,” he said. And there have been 620 bankruptcies in the sector so far this year, according to, up 31% from the same period last year. “I think the malls will be very crowded this weekend.”
But online shopping is speeding up the pace of change in the industry, according to the experts, meaning that a bad holiday season might be enough to kill a retailer that could have survived a bad year in the past. You need both to satisfy today’s customers.”

And even with all the store closures, there are new retailers waiting to move into much of the space that opens up, according to Tom McGee, CEO of the International Center of Shopping Centers. And shoppers are expected to spend more than ever before. The question is where they’ll do that. “Occupancy rates are over 90%. What that says is that it’s being filled by new types of retailers,” said McGee. Store closings will rise next year to about 9,000 as retailers shift their investment to online, says Michael Dart, a retail expert at A.T. For the first time ever, more people say they plan to shop online than in big box stores such as Walmart and Target. He expects strong spending this holiday season but cautions that won’t necessarily translate into good news for brick-and-mortar retailers. That’s more than triple the tally for 2016, according to Fung Global Retail and Technology, a retail think tank.

President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Thanksgiving

The Bushes preferred a more southern menu, featuring turkey with giblet gravy, prairie chapel bass, cornbread and mashed sweet potatoes with maple syrup and chipotle peppers. In his official Thanksgiving Proclamation, Trump also thanked all troops and veterans for their service. When asked by CNN if the President’s adult children would be in attendance, the White House responded that the first family would be having “a nice Thanksgiving dinner with all the family.”
While there are certain annual presidential Thanksgiving customs, such as pardoning a turkey and indulging in food with family, Trump’s predecessors also had their own unique traditions for celebrating the holiday. One agenda item for every former commander in chief’s holiday is to give thanks to US troops serving abroad, whether in phone calls or in person. President George W. “We also offer a special word of thanks for the brave men and women of our Armed Forces, many of whom must celebrate this holiday separated from the ones for whom they are most thankful.”
For his part, Trump and the White House say his time in Florida will be spent working. 27.664827

The first family will celebrate much like the rest of America, with a Thanksgiving meal, according to the White House. Bush spent his Thanksgivings in office at both Camp David and his Crawford, Texas, ranch with his family. While Mar-a-Lago is open to members only, those finding themselves in Palm Beach for the holiday can opt for the club’s main rival as an alternative, The Breakers, which offers a Thanksgiving Day buffet for $150 a person. “I was just looking for a warm meal somewhere,” Bush joked to the troops in 2003, adding, “I can’t think of a finer group of folks to have dinner with.”
In other years, Bush and Obama both spent time during their holiday to call troops serving abroad — usually at least one or two from every military branch. President Barack Obama opted to spend most Thanksgivings with his family in their upstairs residence at the White House, where Obama’s favorite dessert — pie — was always abundant, in at least six different flavors. President Donald Trump, first lady Melania Trump, their son Barron, National Turkey Federation Chairman Carl Wittenburg and his family and members of the Draper County, Minnesota, 4-H chapter pose for photographs after Trump pardoned, Drumstick, the National Thanksgiving Turkey in the Rose Garden at the White House November 21, 2017 in Washington, DC. Trump also announced on Twitter that he will also visit the Coast Guard Quarters nearby in Florida. In 2003, President Bush surprised the world when he made a secret trip to Baghdad to visit troops at the height of the Iraq War, becoming the first sitting US president to visit the country. President Donald Trump arrived in Florida Tuesday to celebrate his first Thanksgiving while in office, but he will spend it a little differently than past presidents — at his Mar-a-Lago residence surrounded by family and feast. U.S. Trump spent his first full day in Florida at his Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, but the White House did not offer details on what he did during his nearly five hours at the club. President Trump will also take time from his holiday to thank troops serving abroad Thursday, calling members of the military in Afghanistan, Iraq, on the USS Monterey, and in Turkey and Bahrain, the White House said. The President tweeted Wednesday he’ll be conducting meetings and working the phones from the so-called Winter White House in Florida, where he will be until Sunday. Last Thanksgiving, the Trumps dined on a total of 24 dishes featuring everything from the holiday’s traditional fare, such as roasted turkey and pumpkin pie, to an extravagant chilled seafood display and chef-carved leg of lamb and grilled diver scallops, per reporters traveling with Trump at the time. But the Trump celebration is expected to be an opulent affair, held inside the member’s only club in glitzy Palm Beach, surrounded by gold embellishments and crystal chandeliers. The Obama family also spent some Thanksgivings volunteering at shelters and serving food to the homeless and at-risk veterans.

‘Explosion’ Heard Near Missing Argentine Submarine’s Last Known Location

(Credit: ALEJANDRO MORITZ/AFP/Getty Images)
“An anomalous, singular, short, violent and non-nuclear event, consistent with an explosion, was registered,” navy spokesman Enrique Balbi told a news conference in Buenos Aires. An Argentine submarine is missing after it lost communication. “They all stay there in a big room with bunk beds and some desks. In addition, the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), based in Vienna, Austria, informed Argentina on Thursday that its monitoring systems had detected an unusual sound. “They keep saying that a submarine in good condition can have this much time, but they don’t say how long they have if the submarine is not in good condition. The deployment includes a ship equipped with two deep-water vehicles capable of searching depths of up to 6,000 meters. “I am sure all of the 44 will be fine and could come here any moment.”
Federico Ibáñez described a tense atmosphere on the navy base as family members huddled together praying for word of the sub’s discovery. A noise detected near the last known location of a missing Argentine submarine on the day it vanished was consistent with an explosion, the Argentine navy said Thursday. “You can do the same things than any men do, even if you are in a traditionally male-dominated environment. They didn’t, and they didn’t look for them at the bottom. I took it as a challenge,” she once told the Argentine Defense Ministry in a video interview. She has voiced hopes of one day commanding a sub herself. The submarine was traveling from a base in Argentina’s far southern Tierra del Fuego archipelago to its home base in Mar del Plata on the northern side of the country. “At the time, there weren’t any female officers in the force. Meanwhile, ships and aircraft are scouring a swath of the South Atlantic for the missing vessel. ‘Critical phase’ of search
Balbi said in a Wednesday press conference that there had been “no type of contact, not passive nor active,” with the submarine since November 15 and that the search was “in the critical phase.”
A spokesman for the UK Ministry of Defense confirmed Thursday that a Royal Air Force C-130 aircraft had landed in Argentina and was now a part of the search, as was a Voyager, a refueling aircraft that helps searches go on longer. Teams from a dozen nations has been searching by air and sea for the ARA San Juan, which has 44 crew aboard and was last contacted off the coast of Argentina on November 15. Also aboard the sub is Eliana Maria Krawczyk, Argentina’s first female submarine officer. Speaking to CNN before news of the possible explosion emerged, he questioned why the Argentine navy continued to say the submarine could be on the ocean surface, and why rescuers took so long to begin searching the ocean floor. Russia has also sent navy specialists and equipment to Argentina, state news agency Tass cited the Russian Defense Ministry as saying Thursday. If the submarine has surfaced or “snorkeled” — that is, raised a tube to the surface to refresh the vessel’s air — since then, the crew may have bought more time. In 2004, she joined the navy after seeing an advertisement about military ships. The San Juan has enough air to last only seven to 10 days if it has remained fully immersed since that time, experts say. The depth of the ocean varies considerably there, ranging from 200 to 2,000 meters, he said. Balbi said information about the noise had first been given to Argentina on Wednesday by the United States. The organization is set up to monitor compliance with the proposed nuclear-test ban treaty and has 11 hydroacoustic stations positioned around the world listening for signs of nuclear explosions. … Any women can do it.”

Missing Argentina Submarine With 44 Aboard Could Soon Be Out of Oxygen
‘Banging’ Noises Could Be Coming From Missing Argentine Submarine, Officials Say The latest update comes as the clock runs down on the chances of finding the vessel before its air supply runs out. “It’s a lack of respect,” said the 34-year-old. If they did it earlier, it could have been different.”
He fears the situation will end badly. I cannot stay there,” he said. The Argentine navy lost contact with the San Juan shortly after the vessel’s captain reported a failure in the battery system while the sub was submerged off Argentina’s South Atlantic coast, the military said. It appears to be the first time since the Falklands conflict in 1982 that an RAF plane has landed in Argentina, although the UK Ministry of Defense would only characterize it as the first time in a “very long time.” The Royal Navy’s ice-patrol ship, HMS Protector, had already joined the search. Waiting for what? Everybody is silent. “If it was on the surface, they would have found it. There was no evidence of any attack and no information on the cause of the noise, Balbi said. The US Navy has sent underwater search vehicles and two undersea rescue systems that could be used to rescue crew members. On November 15, it said, “two CTBTO hydroacoustic stations detected an unusual signal in the vicinity of the last known position of missing Argentine submarine ARA San Juan.”
The sound of “an underwater impulsive event” was detected at 1:51 p.m. Balbi said six teams were currently searching for the missing submarine in waters of the Gulf of San Jorge, about 430 kilometers (268 miles) from the coast. local time) by its underwater microphones, it said. “She knows her father is missing, but she knows he’s fine and will be home soon,” Valacco told CNN on Wednesday. “Details and data are being made available to the Argentinian authorities to support the search operations that are underway,” the organization said. Anxious families have been waiting at Argentina’s Mar del Plata navy base, to which the submarine was heading when it vanished, for news of their loved ones. His wife, Fernanda Valacco, has told the girl little, hoping that her husband will return and she won’t have to explain what happened. So, what if it’s in bad shape?”

Emory had previously concluded that Dickerson “would comply with any and all after-care requirements,” according to Harold Spence, another family attorney. “The transplant team contacted them and said, ‘We have a kidney,’ so they scrambled down here for the last-minute tests that had to be done,” Davis said. “To watch this child that no one expected to live, and now for him to have a chance at a healthy life, it’s unbelievable.

“This is an unexpected Thanksgiving miracle,” family attorney Muwali Davis said while the baby was in recovery at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston. AJ Burgess was born prematurely, his mother says. When evaluating any potential donor, Emory’s medical team is required to consider the ability of the donor to manage the many complications and health challenges that come with a major surgical procedure.”
Davis said at the time that Emory’s justification for denying the transplant was that the hospital wanted to be sure Dickerson would be in a position after the procedure to adhere to the after-care requirements for living donors. “I just hate to see him going through this.”
Initial stalemate
In an earlier statement, Emory Healthcare CEO Dr. “His parents and family are overwhelmed with gratitude,” Davis added. “They want everyone to know that with faith, all things are possible. It was a very emotional moment to see something that we had hoped and prayed for … come to fruition. Community outcry
After activists from Emory’s Candler School of Theology began protesting the hospital’s decision, Davis said, Emory officials began to work with the family to find a solution. Jonathan Lewin said that “the national guidelines for approving a potential organ donor are clear and stringent. “I love him,” Burgess said tearfully on HLN. “AJ’s spirit is strong but his body is not,” she wrote on the GoFundMe page. His parole probation status should not, as far as we’re concerned, be a factor at all.”
On HLN, Dickerson said that “I don’t see why they think it would be a problem for me to try to treat myself after I do the transplant,” adding that he would do everything the hospital required. Two-year-old AJ Burgess received a new kidney Wednesday after a prolonged battle with hospital officials who postponed his original October surgery when his father, a perfect donor match, violated his parole and was arrested. But his son would not make it that long, Burgess said. He was released five days later and expected to report for surgery the following day, Davis said, but the family was told the surgery was canceled. The family plans to “celebrate Thanksgiving in the hospital with him and his new kidney” and asked for privacy during this time of adjustment. “The family arrived about 5 a.m. The reason, Davis told CNN, is that Emory required proof that Dickerson had complied with parole for 90 days, effectively postponing the baby’s transplant until January. “The surgeons came out and told us of this great news,” Davis said, “and hugged the family. That culminated in an early morning phone call from the hospital’s transplant team the day before Thanksgiving. “They are planning a meet-and-greet in January for AJ’s third birthday” to thank the community, Davis said, adding that AJ’s parents are encouraging people to sign up as kidney donors so another family can be “blessed with the gift of life as their son has been blessed.”

-84.387982 Emory Healthcare in Atlanta was set to remove Dickerson’s kidney on October 3, according to Burgess, and soon after, AJ would undergo the transplant at Egleston. When the situation was very bleak, it was their faith and the support of the community that pulled them through this.”
According to AJ’s mother, Carmellia Burgess, the boy was born prematurely without working kidneys. “Everybody understands that,” Davis said, “but nobody can make any guarantee about what happens to a donor when a donation is made. for those tests, and the transplant team took baby AJ back at 7:30 a.m.”
The operation at Egleston took three hours, according to Burgess’ Facebook video, and then came the best news: AJ’s new kidney was already making urine. On a GoFundMe page Burgess established, she says AJ’s father, Anthony Dickerson, was “found to be a perfect match” and volunteered to donate one of his kidneys.
