Caught on CCTV: Defendant attempts to grab cop’s gun in courtroom

COURTESY: LINCOLN COUNTY SHERIFF

Officials with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s office say a man tried to grab a police officer’s gun in a Newport courtroom this week and that a year-old federal appeals decision contributed to the near-disaster.

Authorities say this is the first case of a Lincoln County defendant grabbing for a gun since the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in 2017 to allow judges to decide if defendants are restrained when escorted into the courtroom.

This Abraham Lincoln Animatronic Is So Life-Like You’ll Feel Like You’re In 1863

This isn’t an archival video of Abraham Lincoln, it’s an example of cutting-edge animatronics. This is Garner Holt Production’s “Expressive Head Project.” They crammed more than 40 unique motions into Honest Abe’s head! The silicone skin mask creates life-like creases that can be removed and replaced in less than 2 minutes. Tiny servo-motors operate his face movement to ensure crisp, fluid movement. Plus, he can talk! Lincoln is the first in a line called “The Living Faces of History.” Upcoming animatronics will include Benjamin Franklin, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Mark Twain. They’ll look so real, you may not be able to tell the difference. This is just a glimpse into the future of expressive characters.

George Saunders Explores The Mind Of Abraham Lincoln In His Long-Awaited First Novel (HBO)

George Saunders, one of America’s most beloved short story writers, recently published his first novel, “Lincoln in the Bardo.” While previous works of Saunders have been met with sweeping acclaim, his novel may prove to be more divisive, though early buzz is very positive.

The novel tells the story of Abraham Lincoln and the death of his 11-year-old son, William Wallace Lincoln, called “Willie,” at the start of the Civil War. The plot is narrated by a chorus of ghosts observing Lincoln as he visits his son’s grave.

Saunders’ novel has 166 narrators, intended to represent the numerous cross-sections of lives during Civil War-era America. When the audiobook is released, it’s expected to break a Guinness Book World Record due to the unprecedented enormity of the cast.

“I really like the idea that you can have a book about America,” Saunders said, “and have that delivered by people from every walk of life and every job.”
