    28-year-old man gunned down at a Fairfield gas station earlier this month was apparently killed in a dispute over an engagement ring, and the brutal shooting was captured on store surveillance video. Adarius Elon Williams, a father of four who celebrated a birthday the day before he was killed, died April 8 in the parking lot of the Citgo station on Milstead Road. Vincent Washington, 25, and Barbara Washington, 31, are charged with murder in Williams' death. Additionally, Vincent Washington is charged with first-degree kidnapping because the woman who drove him to the gas station said she wanted to leave,...

    A federal appeals court panel has upheld a Texas prison inmate’s right to a beard and skullcap as required by his religious beliefs. In a 32-page opinion filed Monday, a three-judge 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel in New Orleans unanimously upheld a lower-court ruling that David Rasheed Ali should be allowed to grow a 4-inch beard and wear a knit skullcap, called a kufi, as his faith demands. Ali is a Muslim inmate at the state’s Michael Unit in East Texas near Palestine, where he is serving four concurrent 20-year prison sentences for arson, criminal mischief and aggravated...

    BRUSSELS is set to slap EU states with eye-watering fines of €250,000 for every refugee they refuse - twisting states' arms into accepting controversial migrant quotas.The financial penalty, which would see countries who wish to retain control of their own borders fined hundreds of millions of euros, is expected to be unveiled tomorrow. With countries including Hungary refusing to accept quotas of migrants issued by the European Union, the huge financial threat has been introduced to prevent states from choosing who to accept in their countries. The deliberately high fine of €250,000 per asylum seeker will leave countries with no...

    Details surrounding the State Department’s expected approval of a controversial oil pipeline are being kept secret in an apparent effort to conceal impropriety created by the tight knit relationship between Hillary Clinton and the lobbyist pushing the multi billion-dollar project.The Secretary of State must approve the permit for the Canada-to-Texas pipeline, known as Keystone XL, which will span nearly 2,000 miles and transport around 1 million barrels of heavy crude oil daily across six states. Predicting opposition from environmental groups, the Canadian company behind the mega project hired one of Clinton’s national campaign directors (Paul Elliott) as its chief lobbyist.

Earnest often begins briefings without announcements, but he made a point of specifically detailing Obama’s trip Wednesday to Flint to discuss the town’s water crisis, as well as tout the administration’s response to the matter. “As you all know, the president will travel to Flint, Michigan tomorrow,” Earnest said. “He will stop first at the Food...

A Grand Jury returned an indictment against Marlett for second-degree child abuse Tuesday afternoon. “There is no excuse for Officer Marlett’s actions,” Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks said. “No matter what may have happened, striking a defenseless child and causing this type of injury is never acceptable.”

    With yet another push from President Obama to revive initiatives to develop “smart gun” technology, it looks like it’s time to revisit the issue once again. The most common question I got in response to my previous piece on the many problems with smart guns is, “even if you’re correct that smart guns are a bad idea, why is the NRA so opposed to letting the market even try to get it right?” The NRA’s official position is that they don’t care one way or the other about smart gun tech, and that the market should decide, but we all...

That’s great, but before we congratulate him on his reasonable change of rhetoric, there is just one catch. He wasn’t talking about migration to our country! From The Daily Caller: “What happens in Europe is going to have an impact in the United States,” Obama said. “We consider it a major national security issue that you have uncontrolled migration into Europe.

Making those words understood in Washington, D.C., has been no easy task. “We need more focus in Washington, D.C., on these remote areas,” Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-NM, told me Monday. Heinrich spent the weekend touring the Bootheel with the Border Patrol and visiting with ranchers. Last month, Sen. Tom Udall,...

    To make public-sector jobs more accessible to convicts, President Obama has issued a new order prohibiting federal agencies from asking candidates about criminal history when applying for positions. It’s part of the commander-in-chief’s mission to reduce barriers to reentry and employment for incarcerated individuals once they leave jail. The new measure, announced in a Friday media dump, will affect tens of thousands of federal government positions funded with taxpayer dollars.

    Accused domestic abusers would have to surrender firearms within 24 hours under legislation that won final approval in the Senate on Monday afternoon and now heads to the governor for his expected signature. The bill was approved 23-13 after a two-and-three-quarter hour debate, in which Republicans failed in three attempts to amend it. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who proposed the legislation, indicated right after the vote that he supports the bill, which would require alleged domestic abusers — in most cases, men — to immediately give up their guns and ammunition if their partners seek restraining orders. The goal is...

Attacks in the Gulf of Guinea - a significant source of oil, cocoa and metals for world markets - have become less frequent partly due to improved patrolling but also to lower oil prices, according to an annual report from the U.S. foundation Oceans Beyond Piracy (OBP), which is backed by the shipping industry.

While FDNY officials said the blaze at the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Sava on West 25th Street does not appear suspicious, members of the Orthodox community have doubts. They are worried that the blaze — along with church fires in Australia and Russia — were set in retaliation for the religion’s role in blocking the canonization of Croatian Nazi supporter Cardinal Aloysius...

    Chris Hayes has established a new standard. It is henceforth fair game to say on national TV of any parent who has spanked his child that such parent "hits his kids." Hayes employed the inflammatory formulation on his MSNBC show this evening. Hayes played a clip of a child in a Cruz audience telling him "you suck" and Cruz responding "in my household, when a child behaves that way, they get a spanking." Proclaimed Hayes portentously: "I should note it's a matter of public record by Ted Cruz that he hits his kids." Okay then, so Hayes has equated a...

    Someone went to painstaking detail to track Clinton's email scandal and announced it at DU. Naturally, people are freaking out about it because it is out in the public and the information 'damages their presumptive nominee'. Permission to keep this up for interested FReepers to peruse. I'm quite certain it will be taken down when they discover we are have it here.

    On June 5, 1967, the Alianza Federal de Mercedes – which translates to Federal Land Grant Alliance – led by Reies Lopez Tijerina stormed the courthouse in Tierra Amarilla with the intention of freeing nearly a dozen members of their group who had been arrested two days earlier and to make a citizens’ arrest of prosecuting District Attorney Alfonso Sanchez. The two-hour confrontation resulted in a prison guard being shot through the cheek and a sheriff’s deputy severely beaten. It ended when the 20 or so raiders escaped with two hostages.

    While Bernie may characterize her as otherwise, on the political spectrum, Democratic front runner Hillary Clinton is still very much a liberal. In fact, she’s veered even more in that direction to stay competitive in the increasingly close contest with the Senator from Vermont. Elite universities have traditionally served as a bastion for student liberalism, but, apparently, Mrs. Clinton’s politics aren’t quite liberal enough even for them.

Over the weekend, Hispanic children lined the streets in Fort Wayne, Indiana – hurling filthy insults at Donald Trump supporters. “F*** you,” the youngsters shouted as they flipped off passerby. “F*** you.” Video captured images of the angry protesters wearing sombreros and holding signs that read, “Brown Pride.”
