    This week, America held its collective breath as it waited on the grand jury indictment verdict for Officer ll. Wilson, you'll recall, had the misfortune to run into 6'5", 289-lb. Michael Brown, an 18-year-old black man who had just finished strong-arm robbing a convenience store. Wilson pulled Brown over as he and his accomplice walked in the middle of the street; all available evidence shows that Brown then pushed himself through the driver's side window, punched Wilson, went for his gun, was shot in the hand, ran, turned around, charged Wilson, and was shot to death. But that doesn't matter....

    The FBI bulletin expresses concern only over those who would exploit peaceful protests, not the masses of demonstrators who will want to legitimately, lawfully and collectively express their views on the grand jury’s decision. The bulletin “stresses the importance of remaining aware of the protections afforded to all U.S. persons exercising their First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and freedom of assembly.” Within hours of the FBI issuing its bulletin, some police departments across the country issued their own internal memos urging officers to review procedures and protocols for responding to mass demonstrations. Still, the bulletin’s conclusions were blunt:...

    The tea party movement in New Hampshire is claiming two scalps in a battle with the Republican establishment that reflects a broader civil war poised to escalate if GOP leaders of the House and Senate compromise with President Obama on key legislative issues, including immigration and Obamacare. In the wake of Tuesday’s midterm elections, the New Hampshire tea party is drawing attention to the defeat of two GOP candidates the Republican Party establishment had backed heavily. In a wave election in which the GOP enjoyed historic gains, Walt Havenstein ran unsuccessfully against Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan, and Scott Brown lost...

    Brown is up 48.3 percent to Shaheen’s 46.8 percent in the poll of 1,132 likely voters statewide. The poll was conducted on Oct. 24, and has a margin of error of 2.91 percent. Dr. Wayne Lesperance, New England College's director of the Center for Civic Engagement, attributed Brown’s success to narrowing Shaheen’s lead among women voters. “A 1.5 percent margin is incredibly narrow and makes this race a statistical dead heat. Brown’s recent success comes from narrowing the lead Shaheen had with women to just under 5 percent,” Lesperance said. Shaheen has attempted to reignite the “war on women” rhetoric...

They were first asked to share their views of the U.S. response to the threat of Ebola. Brown said the U.S. needs a travel ban. "I'm thankful that Senator Shaheen broke with President Obama in that regard" and decided to support a travel ban, he said.

Democrats have established a winning formula in recent contests: Roll up big margins with women voters, turn out the party faithful and capture just enough independent voters to allow Democrats’ built-in numerical advantage to overwhelm Republicans.

Are civilan eyewitness accounts (be it one person or more) ever equal to that of a police officer? If so, in which cases?

According to Reuters, Obama’s appearance came at a rally to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland.

Most candidates from his party have been wary of appearing with him during their election races because...

The funding for lawyers for the illegal alien minors comes amidst a nationwide push by outgoing U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to recruit legal talent to represent the children and teenagers--who often cross the U.S.-Mexico border unaccompanied-- against law enforcement proceedings. Holder is the nation's chief law enforcement officer. President Barack Obama and other Democrats have supported the legal recruitment effort.

    Michael Brown robbed a local Ferguson convenience store shortly before his death. Then Brown smashed police officer Darren Wilson in the face, severely injuring Wilson, before he was shot dead. No charges have been filed against Officer Darren Wilson despite weeks of rioting and looting by angry blacks in Ferguson.Many of the witnesses to the shooting have turned out to be unreliable. The top “witness”, Dorian Wilson, was previously prosecuted for lying to police. Several other witnesses reportedly confirmed Officer Wilson’s side of the story, that he was assaulted and shot Mike Brown after he felt his life was in...

    The Democratic Governors Association plans a hefty purchase of television ads in coming weeks to bolster Maryland Democratic gubernatorial nominee Anthony G. Brown in his campaign against Republican businessman Larry Hogan. The $750,000 in spending, confirmed Tuesday night by several people familiar with the ad purchases, suggests that the Democratic party is bracing for a more competitive race in the heavily Democratic state than early polls suggested.

    It has been over a month since Michael Brown was shot and killed in Ferguson, Mo., and we have yet to hear the police officer's version of events. Was Officer Darren Wilson badly injured in his scuffle with Brown? Did Brown attempt to seize the officer's weapon? Did Wilson have reason to fear for his own life? None of these answers has been forthcoming, which is odd and, frankly, suspicious. There are many possible explanations for the tragic death of Brown ranging from justifiable self-defense by Wilson to bad judgment by both parties and all the way to racially motivated...

    sacremento -- In a lively and sometimes raucous debate, Gov. Jerry Brown and Republican challenger Neel Kashkari provided Californians with two very different visions Thursday night of how they would spend the next four years as governor. For Brown, seeking his record fourth term in office, it was a promise of more of the same, a continuing measured improvement in the state's financial and social well-being. That's not good enough, Kashkari said. "I'm running for governor to help your family," he said in his closing statement. "Don't settle for incrementalism. ... We need big changes."
