A woman from Lucerne has been arrested after police say she tased two people at a park. Police say Kathleen Dail was at Alpine Park where two victims say she used a taser on them. Some grabbed the woman until police arrived and say they witnessed what happened. Deputies also found faint marks on one of the victims neck they say looked to be from a taser. The witnesses say she also threatened to kill them. For her part, Dail says a group of people called for her to come to the park and says they threatened her so she warned them she would defend herself and activated the taser and says she accidently hit the victims. She says the victims willingly walked into it as she was activating it, but they arrested her. Dail faces assault charges with a stun gun or taser and for threatening crime with intent to terrorize.

A sigh of relief for some who ended up in the country, and therefore Calif. illegally. The Trump Administration has announced it will keep the DACA program. DACA stands for “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals”. The program put into place five years ago by the Obama administration so kids brought here with their parents illegally can stay legally. The program had been based on kids academic achievements and their potential as contributors to the U.S. economy. The Record Bee reporting some of the DACA recipients still say they’re in limbo though. And those in support of those who have immigrated to the states say the Trump administration didn’t go far enough because it should have included new recipients.

A new report from Stanford University shows cops across the country are more inclined to cite, search and arrest black and Latino drivers in routine traffic stops, more than white drivers. The researchers working with a nationwide database of state patrol stops. They say it’s the biggest compilation of traffic stop data ever put together. It was released as part of the Stanford Open Policing Project with data compiled from 2011-2015. They studied more than 100 million records of traffic stop-and-search information from 31 states. They looked at time spent on the road or driving behavior and how that contributed to the cops stops. Researchers say they also went back and did supplemental studies and found minorities were held to a double standard and were searched with less evidence.
