Bodega Clerk Jose Alba Leaves NYC 'Afraid For His Life,' Mulls Move Back To Dominican Republic

(Fox News) New York City bodega clerk Jose Alba has reportedly left the Big Apple and is mulling a more permanent move back to his native Dominican Republic after murder charges against him were finally dropped.

Alba, 61, no longer works at the Blue Moon convenience store in Manhattan, where he was attacked behind the counter on July 1 by 35-year-old Austin Simon.

Surveillance video shows Simon threatened Alba, came behind the counter and shoved him into a wall before Alba reached for a knife and fatally stabbed the six-foot tall man. Despite claiming self-defense, Alba was charged with murder. 

Simon's girlfriend apparently grew enraged with Alba for taking back items out of her daughter's hand that they couldn't pay for using her electronic welfare card. Simon came back into the store wanting to fight Alba, but Alba tried to avoid further confrontation before he was attacked, according to court documents.

'The View': CPAC Attendees Slam ABC News For Naming Anti-Trump Pundits As 'Conservative' Co-Hosts

(Fox News) Attendees of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas, Texas, weren't thrilled to learn that ABC News appointed a pair of anti-Trump pundits as the new conservative panelists on "The View."

"The View" on Wednesday announced that Alyssa Farah Griffin, who served as White House communications director during the Trump administration but has since became a sharp critic of the former president, and CNN's outspoken Trump critic Ana Navarro will be new co-hosts of the daytime gabfest. Farah Griffin is viewed as filling the "conservative" chair with the announcement, while Navarro will appear when available for the time being as she fulfills other commitments.

They take a role that has historically been occupied by women such as Meghan McCain, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Candace Cameron Bure, but the attendees of CPAC Texas don't think ABC News selected women who can properly articulate conservative view points.

 'Phenomenal Read!': Principal Pushes Trans Book
On 5-Year-Olds, All Hell Breaks Loose

(Daily Caller News Fdn) An elementary school principal issued an apology Friday after promoting a book about a transgender child to students as young as five years old.

Stacy DeCorsey, principal of Excelsior Elementary School in Excelsior, Minnesota, suggested kindergarten through second grade students read "Jack (Not Jackie)," a story about a young girl who realizes she prefers to act like a boy, according to a YouTube video. DeCorsey then issued an apology on Facebook for suggesting the book after it "struck a nerve in the community," and since deleted the original video.

"One of the books I spoke about specifically, which has struck a nerve in our community, was intended to support our transgender students who are often overlooked and misunderstood in schools," DeCorsey said in the video. "Please know this is not a required reading for students, it was simply meant to be a suggestion for families who are looking for these types of resources."

DeCorsey said the "phenomenal read" would be available in the schools' media center for the 2022-2023 school year.

Gov. DeSantis Suspends Hillsborough State Attorney Andrew Warren For 'Neglect Of Duty'

TAMPA, Fla. (Fox 13 News) Surrounded by Bay Area sheriffs, Gov. Ron DeSantis suspended the Hillsborough County State Attorney, saying he violated his oath of office and has been soft on crime.

Thursday, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Andrew Warren's suspension will take effect immediately, saying Warren thinks he's "above the law" and has been "picking and choosing" which laws to enforce, citing the state's 15-week abortion ban as the most recent example.

DeSantis said Warren signed letters in 2021 saying he would not enforce laws prohibiting sex changes for minors.

"The role of the state attorney is to apply the law and enforce the law, not pick and choose which laws you like and which laws you don't like," he said. "This is a law and order state. We're not going to back down from that one inch. We're not going to allow locally-elected people to veto what our state has decreed through our legislative process."

New York Health Department Says
Hundreds Of People May Be Infected With Polio Virus

(CBS News) New York state health officials have found indications of additional cases of polio virus in wastewater samples from two different counties, leading them to warn that hundreds of people may be infected with the potentially serious virus.

Just two weeks ago, the New York Health Department reported the nation's first case of polio in almost a decade, in Rockland County, north of New York City. Officials said that case occurred in a previously healthy young adult who was unvaccinated and developed paralysis in their legs. Since then, three positive wastewater samples from Rockland County and four from neighboring Orange County were discovered and genetically linked to the first case, the health department said in a press release on Thursday, suggesting that the polio virus is being spread within local communities. The newest samples were taken from two locations in Orange County in June and July and one location in Rockland County in July.
