    The 15-year-old was charged with two counts of murder and three counts of child abuse for the Saturday slayings, the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department said. In a social media profile, Nehemiah called himself a ‘fun loving guy.’ The New Mexico 15-year-old accused of fatally shooting his parents and three innocent siblings constantly wore camouflage gear, neighbors said after the murders rocked the tiny town in the outskirts of Albuquerque. Nehemiah Griego was "fairly quiet, not real rowdy that we could tell,” neighbor Jerry Crites told CBS affiliate KRQE in Albuquerque. “He seemed to be just a normal kid walking up...
  • Ham Sandwich Nation: Due Process When Everything is a Crime

    01/20/2013 11:57:02 AM PST · by BCrago66 · 18 replies
    Though extensive due process protections apply to the investigation of crimes, and to criminal trials, perhaps the most important part of the criminal process -- the decision whether to charge a defendant, and with what -- is almost entirely discretionary. Given the plethora of criminal laws and regulations in today's society, this due process gap allows prosecutors to charge almost anyone they take a deep interest in. This Essay discusses the problem in the context of recent prosecutorial controversies involving the cases of Aaron Swartz and David Gregory, and offers some suggested remedies, along with a call for further discussion.

The five worst mass killings, where a firearm was used, have a common thread. Hint #1: They didn’t belong to the NRA. They don’t fit the stereotype of the “red-neck” gun owner. Ft Hood: Registered Democrat/Muslim. Columbine: Too young to vote; both families were registered Democrats and progressive liberals. Virginia Tech: Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff.

    Warning about "weapons designed for the theater of war," President Obama on Wednesday called for immediate action on a new Federal Assault Weapons Ban. He said that "more of our fellow Americans might still be alive" if the original assault weapons ban, passed in 1994, had not expired in 2004. Last month, in the wake of the horrific shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) promised to introduce an updated version of the ban. She too warned of the threat posed by "military weapons." After the nightmare of Newtown, their concern is understandable. Yet...

    On Thursday's CBS This Morning, Charlie Rose and Norah O'Donnell granted staunch gun rights supporter Michael Bloomberg a platform to blast the NRA as "stupid", and brush aside gun-owning Americans as a radical minority. O'Donnell set up the New York City mayor to accuse the gun rights group of being under the thumb of gun manufacturers. The CBS anchors also took a more subdued approach to the Bloomberg segment, compared to their contentious interview of NRA President David Keene just minutes earlier. Co-anchor Charlie Rose led the segment with a softball question to the billionaire politician [audio clips from the...

    HUNTSVILLE, January 16, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – An elderly woman was handcuffed and charged with misdemeanor harassment after spraying holy water outside a Huntsville abortion facility. Joyce Fecteau, who is in her seventies, was arrested after pro-abortion counter protestors complained after coming into contact with holy water from the spray bottle she was carrying. Pro-abortion demonstrator Lisa Cox accused Fecteau of spraying her in the face with an “unknown substance.” She claims the incident occurred December 22 on the sidewalk outside the “Alabama Women's Center for Reproductive Alternatives” abortion clinic. As a result of Cox’s allegations, Fecteau was arrested outside the...

    Ta-Nehisi Coates: Do you own a gun? Are you a gun person, at all? Jeffrey Goldberg: It doesn't make much sense to tell people that you are unarmed. Many businesses and institutions around the country advertise themselves as "gun-free zones." This is a ridiculous policy--not to be gun-free, but to tell people you are. It's akin to posting a sign on your front door stating, "No burglar alarm here."

    Shawn Sullivan is a fugitive and accused pedophile, and to some, he's also a poster child for a European judicial system that often would rather let criminals roam their streets freely than see them subjected to American justice. Nearly 20 years ago, Sullivan, who is now 43, fled to Ireland after being charged with raping a 14-year-old girl and molesting two boys in Minnesota. Sullivan, who had dual citizenship, was accused of assaulting two girls in Ireland in 1997, but fled to London, where police finally caught up with him in June 2010. Although he did time in Wandsworth Prison...

Unfortunately, most of these gangs use violence and crime to achieve their goals, and they are taking over communities all over America. If your community is not a gang-infested war zone yet, you should consider yourself to be very fortunate. If nothing is done about this, the violence and the crime that is fueled by these gangs will continue to spread, and eventually nearly every single community in the United States will be affected by it.

In fact, the problem is not complex, and the solution is blindingly obvious. People point to three sets of causes...

But it raises important issues about fairness and equality before the law. After being called out by viewers, the Metropolitan Police Department confirmed that the incident is "under investigation" because it's illegal to even have such a device in one's possession in the District of Columbia, where the show was taped. The law in question is crystal clear: "No person in the District shall possess, sell,...

    "Having grown up in South Africa in the 1970s and '80s, and serving there in the military as a riot control officer, I have seen my fair share of violence -- mostly violence through senseless acts of terrorism by the African National Congress on what are termed "soft targets" within South Africa. Soft targets are targets that are easy to attack. Generally they were places where there would be little or no defense and where many innocent children and adults would be murdered. Cowards go for soft targets so they can achieve their sordid goals with little or no resistance."

    Gun deaths and injuries have dropped sharply in California, even as the number of guns sold in the state has risen, according to new state data. Dealers sold 600,000 guns in California last year, up from 350,000 in 2002, according to records of sale tallied by the California Attorney General's office.

Firearm-related deaths fell from about 3,200 annually to about 2,800, an 11...

    NOTE: the National Enquirer is spreading a brain cancer rumor, something the Hillary camp has denied. Let's revisit the story of Hillary and her shameful visit to children with cancer, shall we? In this series of 30 episodes about the evil that is Hillary, I admittedly called it incorrectly. At the time, I thought the two greatest threats to our republic were Islamic terrorists and Hillary Clinton. There were actually three great threats. I had no idea at the time about the community organizer from Chicago, whose purpose in life was to fool the masses of dumbed down voters and...

    FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS (KMOX) - An East St. Louis couple is charged with beating an elderly employee at a Metro East Best Buy.

The video shows a child taking the boxes off the doorstep. Nobody would ever question a little girl walking around the neighborhood with packages in her hand," said Lebede. Jessia Araujo runs...
