Now that African-Americans are seeing what a bad job Hillary type policy and management has done to the inner-cities, they want TRUMP!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 29, 2016
Trump’s outreach to African American voters appears to be falling flat among that demographic, with only 5 percent of black voters saying they will vote for Trump; 79 percent of African American respondents say they will vote for Clinton, with 16 percent undecided.
The shooting took place outside a house at 311 Donald Ross Drive after police responded to a 911 call made from a block away about a man with a gun who was reportedly trespassing. An officer located the man in the street and gave chase on foot before he was joined by a second officer, according to police.4. Air Force pilots pull a "Top Gun."
The Raleigh Police Department identified the man who was killed as Jaqwan Julius Terry, 24, of Raleigh, and the officers involved as B.S. Beausoleil and B.F. Burleson. The wounded officer, Burleson, was taken to WakeMed hospital for treatment of what was reported to be a nonlife-threatening leg wound.

Air Force and Federal Aviation Administration officials are looking into a low-altitude flight by four military jets over Bank of America Stadium Monday morning that startled residents and office workers.5. Teenager talks about spending six months as a detainee.
The pilots of the A-10 “Warthogs” were participating in routine navigation training from Charlotte to Moody Air Force Base near Valdosta, Ga., the base said in a statement Monday. The jets were not participating in an official Air Force stadium flyover, as Charlotte Douglas International Airport officials originally said.
A Charlotte Douglas spokeswoman said the airport was advised by the “air traffic control tower that there are military jets practicing their stadium run” over the Carolina Panthers’ home field. The errant report, the FAA said later, resulted from one of its employees incorrectly telling a Charlotte Douglas official that the flight was “a practice flyover for a football game.”
The planes “weren’t practicing for anything.”
Panthers spokesman Steven Drummond said no stadium flyovers are currently planned for this season, although the team is trying to set one up for the home season opener against the San Francisco 49ers on Sept. 18. In any case, the planes would not be A-10s, he said.
“We didn’t know about it,” he said of Monday’s flyover.
The flyover occurred during a Panthers practice session. Coach Ron Rivera told reporters that he was surprised by the planes.

He also talked about the racism, mistreatment and uncertainty that roiled his emotions while in a place he described as the “ICE box,” a play on U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement, the federal agency that enforces immigration laws. But he also used the term to describe the frigid temperatures in several of the places where he was held after arriving in the United States.
ICE agents arrested Acosta on Jan. 28 as he left his Durham home for Riverside High School, where he was a senior. Since then, immigration activists, teachers, fellow students, Durham city officials and U.S. Rep. G.K. Butterfield have called for his release and for a new hearing to consider his request for asylum.
