    On November 19th, 2017, the infamous Manson family cult leader Charles Manson died at the age of 83. While discussing the Manson Family provokes flashbacks to the gruesome murders in August 1969 by Manson’s followers, very few people examine the backstory which leads to these types of tragedies. You cannot understand Charles Manson as an adult without understanding what happened to him in his childhood. What is the truth about Charles Manson?

    Question: “My wonderful wife is pregnant with our second child and I’m very excited to have another kid. As I ponder fatherhood, I get so scared that my kids might feel the same darkness and loneliness I felt when I grew up. I’m afraid that because I haven't really addressed the pain of my childhood, that history will repeat itself and I’ll be like my father and my kids will cry as I did. What can I do, to make sure that if my kids feel pain, it’s not because their father? How do I break the chains of bitterness...

In a unanimous vote, the Committee also separately condemned Turkey for the violent attack on peaceful protesters outside Turkish Ambassador’s residence in Washington, D.C., during President Erdogan’s entrance to the building.The congressmen at the subcommittee hearing even went on to say that President Erdogan should never be allowed to visit the United States again, and pressed for the expulsion of the Turkish ambassador, echoing the...

According to WBRZ, the officer initially found Thomas Bennet, 28, asleep in a car parked on Harry Drive in Baton Rouge. Syringes and a bag of cocaine were in...

    Pinned to the ground by officers who kneed and struck him, Lawrence Crosby screamed whatever he could think of to convince them that he was a law-abiding PhD student, not a violent car thief. “This is my vehicle, sir,” he said, his voice captured by the dashboard-camera video. “I have evidence. . . . I purchased this vehicle Jan. 23, 2015, from Libertyville Chevrolet.” It wasn’t enough. The officers placed him in handcuffs in the driveway of a church, two blocks from the police station in Evanston, Ill.

    The pastor of a central New York church where two brothers were beaten during a 14-hour "counseling session" pleaded guilty Friday to manslaughter and assault. Three other members of the Word of Life Christian Church in New Hartford agreed to less serious charges for their roles in the beatings that killed Lucas Leonard, 19, and injured his 17-year-old brother Christopher. Pastor Tiffanie Irwin, her brother Joseph Irwin and mother-and-son church members Linda and David Morey are the last of nine people to be convicted in the brutal attack that investigators say took place after the victims discussed leaving the congregation.

    Chicago’s top cop said Thursday one of his officers was seriously beaten at an accident scene because the national focus on police shootings has caused officers to second-guess themselves. Superintendent Eddie Johnson said the patrol officer told him she did not use her gun to defend herself for fear of a backlash. "She didn’t want her family or the department to go through the scrutiny the next day on national news," he said. *snip* The suspect smashed the officer's face into the pavement repeatedly until she was unconscious, police said.

    Talladega Mayor Larry Barton says he does not know why he was targeted when he was beaten with a baseball bat Saturday, but a former lawyer for the assailant said it started with a sex tape. Here is the story Barton tells: "I pulled up to the barbershop and there was a guy in a hood and trench coat standing there," he said. "I opened the door and he started pounding me with a baseball bat." Barton, 74, said 71-year-old Benny Green -- who used to co-host Barton's radio show "In the Interest of the People" – hit him repeatedly...

Police today identified the suspect as 34-year-old Janard Shamar Cunningham, also known as Janaris Shavar Cunningham. He has at least a half dozen convictions dating back to 1999, and as many arrests in which charges were dismissed during the same time period. Cunningham is charged in the beating of a detective who is a six-year veteran of the force. Authorities said Cunningham stole the detective's gun and then repeatedly hit him in...

    Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell is now calling for hate crime charges in the horrific mob beating of a white man who was left bloodied and unconscious on the sidewalk on the Fourth of July. The brutal attack was first described as “anti-white” by officer Alicia Essert in the original incident report, but Capt. Mike Neville said on Monday that the preliminary description was incorrect. Chief Blackwell has apparently reconsidered and found cause to ask Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters to pursue hate crime charges in the beating, the Cincinnati Inquirer reported.

The nephew said the woman was naked, and Mattson was clothed. The man said he beat Mattson until he was out of the house....
