A man who fell between a running Metro light rail train and a bus platform in Midtown on Wednesday is expected to survive a leg injury.
The person was waiting to board the Red Line Southbound train at Wheeler Street station about 2 p.m. When he stepped into the moving train, sliding into the inch-wide gap between the platform and the station, the Houston firefighters reported. He was pushed on his foot, and he was pulled along the platform by the train until it came to a stop.
He suffered serious leg injuries, but was quickly pulled from under the train car by firefighters. He was transferred to Ben Taub Hospital for treatment and is expected to survive, said the firefighters. While the southbound red line was temporarily shut down, people were sighted on and off another southbound train at around 2:45 p.m.
Houston's murders in 2019 were outstripping the number of murders in 2018 and 2017, police claim.
As of Wednesday, Houston Police Department Homicide Detectives solved the murders of 210 people compared with 207 in 2018 and 186 in 2017. This is a rise of around 1.5 percent over 2018 and almost 13 percent since 2017.
The spike was due to the fact that the FBI figures reported by the Houston Chronicle indicate that total crime is down, but violent crime is still on the rise. Of the 210 people killed so far in 2019, 129 were convicted by the police.
Just recently, retired Houston police officer Gerald Goines was charged with two counts of murder for conducting a failed raid on 7915 Hardin St. that killed Dennis Tuttle and Rh

The 25-year-old Houston designer Alan Gonzalez has been picked up as a contestant for the next season of Project Runaway. The 18th season which will be start telecasting on 5th December at 8:30 PM may see Alan becoming its next star. Alan, who migrated to Houston at the age of three, took birth in Mexico. He emigrated with his family. However, Alan received a setback when his father was deported back 12 years later when Alan was 15.
The incident made Alan mother the single mother of two kids in Houston. Other than designing, Alan also works as a Youth Minister. Alan was energetic since his high schools days and was highly interested in Visual and Performing Arts. Alan earned his associate degree in fashion from Community College in Houston soon after he started his clothing line by the name of Alantude.
After the general manager of Rockets refuses to toe the Communist Party script, the NBA kowtows. China has become relaxed throwing American businesses around — a little too confident. His suspension of the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association, declared on Sunday to silence support for mass protests in Hong Kong, notified Americans of the threat posed by China's intimidation in a way that theft of intellectual property could never do.
"Fight for liberty. Mr. Morey had deleted the tweet within a few hours, team owner Tilman Fertitta had disavowed the opinions of the general manager, and China had financially cut off the Rockets.
The NBA quickly released a statement in English that reiterated both the interests of Beijing and the encouragement of the league for "individuals informing themselves and expressing their opinions on issues that matter to them." The league provided a different statement in Chinese, which began: "We were extremely disappointed with the General Manager's inappropriate comments." It's ridiculous, but don't accuse him. He cannot take on the Communist Party of China alone— it's not a legitimate fight.
The mouthpiece of the government, China Central Television, and People's Daily editorialized against Mr. Morey. The sports channel of CCTV said it would no longer broadcast Rocket matches. Tencent, a Chinese company that holds exclusive digital rights to NBA games in China, said it will stop showing the virtual squad, bringing with it the 490 million fans who watched NBA games last season on their channels. Next, two Chinese advertisers withdrew the Rockets, Shanghai resident Yao Ming's highly popular former team, and the Chinese Basketball Association refused to work with them. That was the first-day response from China.
When coping with Western companies, coercion is the first recourse strategy in China. It served against luxury brands Versace, Givenchy, and Coach this summer, who was forced to apologize after releasing t-shirts that did not describe Taipei, Hong Kong, and Macau as part of China. This operates also against American scholars, cultural associations, and even actors. China is using brute force to limit and get away with the American language.
Why don't you take a tough foul? America can respond by revoking visas to join Chinese gymnastics teams or orchestras for the boycott of the Rockets. There is no denying that the Chinese bullies grin at every obsequious statement made by Houston and the NBA, but Americans don't smile. Some experience something like nationalism's stirrings, not being gently driven by a hostile tyranny. America wakes up to an unpleasant reality: China works this way. Therefore, organizing Americans around a political plan is up to the Trump administration. They shouldn't let China transform us, even if the West can't change China.

Following repeated attempts to get in without boarding passes, the woman who was nicknamed the "serial stowaway" was arrested again, the Chicago police stated.
The Chicago Police Department said in a news release that Marilyn Hartman was taken into custody Friday night after she tried to pass into Chicago's O'Hare International Airport screening without a boarding pass or identification.
The Illinois woman is charged with one felony crime count in an area/airport recorded and is scheduled to appear in court on Sunday morning, the release said.
Hartman was still on probation for a prior trespassing incident that, according to the report, barred her from going to O'Hare or Midway airports without a boarding pass.
Friday's detention contributes to Hartman's list of at least five others.
She was charged in O'Hare last year after British authorities initially detained her in England. She was charged with a misdemeanor count of trespassing and a felony count of robbery after having successfully flown from Chicago to London without a visa or boarding pass.
After that visit, she was advised to undertake a psychiatric evaluation. Those who witnessed her arrests said that the effectiveness of her evasive maneuvers relies on her ability to blend into the crowd as an apparently innocent, elderly white woman
Hartman made national headlines in August 2014 when she was charged at Los Angeles International Airport for boarding a flight without a fare from Mineta San Jose International Airport. She agreed not to fight the proceedings and was sentenced to probation.
The next day, she was taken back to Los Angeles International Airport. She was seen landing at the airport and visiting passenger terminals.
"The Airport Police officers did not know that Hartman was attempting to buy an airline ticket and that she had no reservation or boarding pass in her hands when she was detained," the airport said in a statement.
A man is in jail after he fired five people — four of them fatally — in an apartment building in Chicago, police said. The shooting took place on Saturday night, and a gun was seized from the site, according to Tom Ahern, the Chicago Police Department spokesman.
The suspect — a 67-year-old retired construction worker — allegedly shot the victims while they were eating inside the home, quoting the police.
"As he walked into the neighbor's apartment, there were four people at the dinner table," said First Deputy Superintendent Anthony Riccio. "He opened fire and murdered them for motives we don't know yet."
After shooting at the dinner table, the man allegedly went upstairs and shot a woman who had been hospitalized in serious condition, the affiliate reported. The suspect is a neighbor identified to the victims he added. The police have not provided any additional information.
In the midst of increasing debt for more than 650 police and fire pension funds across the City, local finances are being pushed out, facilities are being strained and tax bills are at risk, as politicians have failed repeatedly to reach an agreement on the reform.
Municipalities and municipalities have long disagreed with the most frequently discussed approach, consolidating the funds and several measures aiming at resolving this issue were not included in the spring meeting of the General Assembly. Nonetheless, this summer there is an expectation that the bill will eventually be brought forward with a realistic policy plan, as a task force appointed by Gov. J.B. Pritzker would make recommendations to improve the health of pension funds across the world.
"It's so clear that it's about how we do, we shouldn't," said Brad Cole, Executive Director of the Municipal League of Illinois. "After a spring session in which lawmakers settled on a considerable number of goals for Pritzker — like recreational cannabis, gaming reform and phased income tax — I'm really hopeful about something that could come up in the fall veto."
Recent focus has been paid to investments for Illinois ' five public-wide state government retirement program and the Chicago Foundation's nearly $28 billion in unfunded liabilities. Nevertheless, figures are smaller in comparison, and many cities and towns throughout the world have their own retirement problems. Unfunded shared obligations in over 650 Police districts and downstairs.
All in all, we have enough assets to cover just 55% of the debt, well short of the government's 90% funding goal by 2040, and the estimate has decreased since the Great Recession was nearly 63%. Several programs remain seriously behind–according to the commission's study, the North Chicago Police Pension Fund is only 28 percent funded by firemen. The grants completely protect nearly 20,000 officers and 14,000 fire staff. For more than a decade local governments have sought to incorporate the single funding needed for any population of at least 5,000 people with one full-time cop or firemen.
Pritzker would not say whether legislation was proposed in anticipation of the fall veto session in the legislature to cope with retirement issues. When this task force was announced earlier this year, a wide range provided for the police and firefighters ' unions upstairs, local police and Chicago's five state systems, and pension systems, said Hynes. "Speedy on the suburban and downstate police and fire was the best way for us to get underway," he said. "This would have done a lot, many years ago if it were easy," Hynes said, "and this is where we really focused."
