Mother Gives Life Protecting Child from Vicious Rescue Dog Attack: ‘I Have No Arms and I’m Dying’


 & the first thing that any sane person would ask........

On Dec. 8, mother-of-two Heather Pingel of Bowler, Wisconsin, was faced with a tragic choice that most parents never have to make.

In a strange series of events, Heather’s 4-year-old son Damion Bernarde took a tumble down the stairs, which appeared to trigger the family dog and it attacked, according to OK! News.

Seeing the dog strike, Heather quickly shielded her son and the dog went after her, instead, injuring her severely and leaving her mangled and struggling for her life.]

Report: Armed Citizens Are Working at Southern Border to Assist Law Enforcement

Groups of armed citizens are working at the southern border to help law enforcement find and detain immigrants trying to get into the United States illegally, according to a new report from the Wall Street Journal.

Some sheriffs are welcoming the help as their communities and criminal justice systems are overwhelmed with the increasing number of migrants. A new Texas law allows state troopers to arrest illegal immigrants on misdemeanor trespassing charges, and these groups are working to find migrants and notify law enforcement.
