News to know
A man who was caught sexually assaulting a 4-year-old girl was killed by the girl’s father, Texas police said. The girl and her father were at the abuser’s house for a social gathering, and at one point, the girl was inside the house with the man and he began sexually assaulting her. The father happened to enter the house and saw the assault, and he repeatedly punched the attacker in the head, killing him. Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon said they aren’t charging the father, as it was “defense of his third person,” but a grand jury could decide to bring charges.

Jeb Bush, talking about how former President George H.W. Bush and Reagan wouldn’t have fit into today’s Republican Party.
