‘Jaws of life’ used to free Tiger Woods from single-car accident

Golfer Tiger Woods was injured in a serious car crash in the Los Angeles area Tuesday morning, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Woods was the only person in the car.

‘Colossal’ breakdown: FBI warning not fully shared before Capitol riot

Top Capitol law enforcement officials said Tuesday they did not see an ominous bulletin provided by the FBI the night before the U.S. Capitol riot warning that protesters were “preparing for war.” Under questioning, former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund said the FBI intelligence report was received at Capitol Police headquarters the night before the riot Jan. 6, but leaders did not see it. Sund said officers had not been trained for such an attack and not all had riot gear. The contents of the FBI’s warning included language calling for protesters to “be ready to fight.” If Capitol Police leaders received the report, could they have better prepared for the siege that left five dead, including a Capitol Police officer? 

Protesters enter the Capitol on Jan. 6 in Washington as Congress held a joint session to ratify President-elect Joe Biden's 306-232 Electoral College win over President Donald Trump.
