Did the Facebook app force log you out, too?

(NewsNation Now) — Just before 9 p.m. CST, some Facebook users began reporting issues with the social media platform's mobile app forcing them to log out and log back in again.

I-Team: FBI forwarded 2 Nevada-based right-wing posts; special agent in charge says 'see something, say something'

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- The FBI was forwarded two online posts made before President Joe Biden’s inauguration that referenced former President Donald Trump retaining power, the I-Team confirmed.

Two weeks ago, Nye County Republican Party chair Chris Zimmerman released a letter stating, “Trump will be president for another four years. Biden will not be president.”

“The next 12 days will be something to tell the grandchildren! It’s 1776 all over again!” the letter read, along with supposed events that were sure to happen, then did not. Zimmerman is now asking for donations to a legal defense fund, though no charges have been filed.

Last week, a Nye County firearms training facility started offering a free course to join “Trump’s Army.” Dr. Ignatius Piazza, the founder of the Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, based in Pahrump, was listed as the website’s owner... Read More

Vehicle burglaries: How to keep your belongings safe

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — You probably see it daily on apps like Ring and Nextdoor: a suspicious person looking for unlocked cars or tools stolen out of a truck. Whether you are at home, at the mall, store or work, you need to “take, lock and hide.”

Security consultant Tommy Burns explains exactly what that means. 

“Usually, with my experience, they check the cars doors to see if they are unlocked, and then they rifle the car. Rifle for change and things of that nature. If you leave something and they have a flashlight, it leaves an opportunity for them to break the window," he said.

Tarus Nelson of Las Vegas recently had his car burglarized while he was sitting inside of it.

"Out of nowhere, this guy comes to my car while I'm inside the car,” Nelson recounted, “my car is tinted and [he] pulls out a gun, shoots my back window out.

I-Team: Vaccination questions hard to answer, but shortage of doses a big factor

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Shirley Brice, 66, is frustrated with Nevada's vaccine rollout.

"In my age group, a lot of friends around the country, I see them getting vaccinated all over the place. And I'm thinking, what is wrong with Nevada?" Brice asks.

Now we know one reason. State officials say there's a vaccine shortage.

"I'm like wait a minute, what's going on here?" Brice asks.

Caleb Cage, the state's COVID-19 Response director points to a vaccine shortage.

Cage says he hopes that will change through the Biden administration. He reports for the past five weeks, Nevada has received approximately 36,000 doses a week. But the goal is to administer 18,000 doses a day.

He points to Cashman Center, which is now closed Friday through the weekend. Cage says there may not be enough doses to keep the downtown Las Vegas mega-vaccination site running each day... Read More
