The nation’s oldest known veteran, Emma Didlake, died Sunday.She was 110.Last month  she met President Obama in the White House.

Didlake, an African American housewife who joined the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps in 1943, fell ill Sunday morning and suddenly died.

Her granddaughter, Evelyn Horne, said she had complained of feeling tired over the past few days, and had showed signs of failing over the weekend.

“It was a month ago today that we went to the White House, a month ago today,” said Horne, 62, of Farmington Hills, a Detroit suburb. “I think she felt she had accomplished everything and could take her rest.”

Florida Cops Fired Over Racist Texts


 

A five-month internal investigation on four Florida cops led to three of them being fired, and one of them resigning, according to NBC Miami. The officers reportedly sent a trailer-style video amongst themselves containing a Ku Klux Klan hood, attacks against minorities, derogatory images of President Obama and racist comments about Hispanics and homosexuals.

“I had a wet dream that you two found those n—–s in the VW and gave them the death penalty right there on the spot,” one of the texts reads. Many of their extremely hostile and racially charged conversations can be read at the Sun Sentinel.

According to another text, one of the officers said, “We are coming and drinking all your beer and killing n—–s.”

“There was no criminal behavior detected during this investigation, however, the four officers’ conduct was inexcusable and there is zero tolerance for this kind of behavior in the Fort Lauderdale Police Department,” said Fort Lauderdale Police Chief Frank Adderley.
