    Lyric Opera of Chicago stagehands found themselves in the middle of some real-life drama just outside their doors last month when they came to the aid of a tourist being pummeled in broad daylight. Police say Mark Ball, 50, allegedly began beating a 27-year-old Boston man — for no apparent reason — near 20 W. Wacker about 2:30 p.m. on May 28. For Robert Hartge, a laid-back day — the last of the season at the Lyric — was suddenly turned upside down in an instant. Standing inside the opera’s glass doors on Wacker Drive with other stagehands, Hartge noticed...

Carroll Jordan of Chickasaw, Ala., was attacked on Jan. 27 and died 12 days later as a result of complications from surgery. Considering the brutal nature of the crime, two of the suspects charged in Jordan’s death — DeAngelo Terrell Smith, 21, Yasmine Munnerlyn, 19 — sported some curious grins in their mug shots. The third suspect, and Carlos Nottingham, 20, had a more somber look in his official police photo. The three, who have reportedly had past issues...

    The day of the funeral for a 5-year-old Omaha girl killed by a stray bullet, a national organization declared that Nebraska has the highest black homicide rate in the nation. The statistics that the Washington D.C.-based Violence Prevention Center analyzed do not include the Jan. 15 killing of Payton Benson. The numbers come from 2011, the most recent year for which comprehensive national homicide data is available. But a high ranking is not a one-year anomaly. Thirty black people — including 27 people in Omaha — were killed in homicides in Nebraska in 2011. That translates to a black homicide...

    Many children grow up looking up to their mothers. But one woman in Missouri is setting the wrong example for her kids. She allegedly took them along for a jewelry store heist. Surveillance video captures her going into a store with her two young kids, a boy and girl. The store owner says that the woman distracted him, while her kids filled up her purse with thousands of dollars in jewels. Police did recover $10,000 worth of merchandise and identified the woman in the surveillance video. However, thieving family is on the run tonight.

    "Someone could break in and take the kids," said Marilyn Brook. "Or they could coerce the kids to open the door, take the car and the kids and be gone." "Just leaving them unattended is irresponsible in itself and then to go and do something that's illegal while they're sitting in the car is just inexcusable," said Gabriel Gonzalez. NBC12 wanted to see if Thomas could explain what happened.

    Delbert Belton. Chris Lane. An unnamed 13-year-old boy riding a school bus in Florida. What do these people have in common? They are all whites who have been violently assaulted by blacks recently. And on Mother’s Day of this year, 20 people were gunned down in New Orleans by Akein Scott, also black. All of his victims were black. Not white-blacks or white-Hispanic-blacks, but blacks. Alas for these departed souls, unless you attract the narcissistic attention of Barack Obama, you’re unlikely to get the maudlin media mourning mash-up that Trayvon Martin received as a reward for beating George Zimmerman’s face...

    “Divorce Court” aired Friday had a one word answer when asked how one man could have 27 children. “Sex,” Nathaniel J. Smith responded Monday. The answer came just hours after Smith was released from the Montgomery County Jail on a failure to appear charge related to a child support case. Smith said he was unaware of the court appearance for which he was arrested Sunday morning. The 39-year-old father of 12 sons and 15 daughters by 17 women said he didn’t think about his children’s best interest when he was procreating. “How I lived is wrong. I will admit everything,...

    A convicted robber in Nebraska allegedly shot four people in the head weeks after finishing a decade-long prison stint that began when he was a teenager.... . . . Jenkins' early release obviously calls into question the wisdom of "good-time" credit. It also calls into question the notion that prison has any power at all to rehabilitate criminals. Jenkins got locked up as a relatively young teenager and apparently just got more violent. The murder of 33-year-old Andrew Kruger is particularly horrifying. Kruger, a wife and mother of three, was on her way home from work right before she...

    A man was arrested this afternoon in Union Square after allegedly attacking three people. According to witness Joey Boots, the African-American suspect attacked a white man around 2:30 p.m. "He bloodied him up pretty good," Boots said. When two others came to aide the victim, the suspect allegedly assaulted them as well, and started shouting, "I hate white people." You can see a video of the aftermath below. It's unclear what started the fracas, although the Instagram user who posted the video said, "This dude punched this other dude for walkin past him funny." At least one victim (the first)...
