    Last night, it was actually safer outside of a Brentwood, TN gated subdivision than it was inside of it. "BRENTWOOD, Tenn. - A man wanted in connection with his wife's shooting death was taken into custody early Monday morning after an overnight manhunt.

Police believe he had been laying low in the area, but were unsure where he had been. Maidens was to be questioned later Monday morning, and charges could be...

    But soon after, other things started happening for the first time in Monterrey, things that in the mind of the locals only happened in Hollywood movies like: drive by shootings and car chases, robberies, kidnappings and extortion. People were not use to hearing about these kinds of events in Monterrey. Panic grew rampant as the local authorities tried to invalidate and diminish the incidents. After a while, it was evident to all that this problem had been brewing for decades, due to government corruption and collusion with organized crime as well as a total lack of expertise to deal with...

  • Democrat Is Dodging Questions About Her Possible Ties To Gosnell, Will Media Investigate?

    As we've noted, the liberal media generally and the Big Three broadcast networks in particular have studiously avoided paying attention to the Kermit Gosnell murder trial. The Philadelphia abortionist is charged with murdering newborns who survived abortion attempts and were born alive. But aside from the criminal aspect of the case, there's other angle in the Gosnell matter that is of interest to political observers of the 2014 election cycle, particularly the Pennsylvania governor's race. One of the Democrats vying for the nomination to challenge Gov. Tom Corbett (R) is Rep. Allyson Schwartz (D-Pa.), who operated an abortion clinic from...

    A crazed man attacked a U.S. Army officer at a Wal-Mart store in Albany, New York, after verbally harassing the solider for his military service, video surveillance footage shows. Albany police released the footage after charging 47-year-old Yiqiang Wu of Schenectady with assault as a hate crime for Thursday's fight at a checkout line. The Army captain told police that a man behind him in line began to yell derogatory comments at him about the United States and his service to the nation. ‘It started with the middle finger and the officer asked if it was for him or something...

    US police have arrested a beggar who allegedly set a man on fire outside a convenience store because he didn’t give him money. The 37-year-old beggar reportedly approached his victim as he got out of his car at a California 7-Eleven store and asked him for money, US network ABC reported yesterday. The 63-year-old man refused to give him money and walked into the shop. When the man left the store and got into his car the beggar doused him and the inside of the vehicle with a flammable substance and lit it on fire. "With the door open you...

WND features these reports to counterbalance the virtual blackout by the rest of the media due to their concerns that reporting such incidents would be inflammatory or even racist.

    Monster: Illegal alien DUI killer Nicolas Guaman.- by John HillStand With ArizonaWebsite | Facebook | Twitter It was one of the most brutal DUI deaths we've seen at the hands of an illegal alien - and we've seen a lot (here, here, here and here, for starters). In 2011, Ecuadorean illegal Nicolas Guaman, drunk at nearly three times the legal limit, ran through a stop sign in Milford, Mass., striking 23-year old Matthew Denice on his motorcycle. Denice was not killed by the impact, but died as Guaman tried to flee the scene, dragging Denice's body nearly 1/4 mile under...

    To Chicago went the doubtful distinction of having the most homicides—510; New York City, with approximately twice the population of Chicago, had 340. In twenty-eight of the leading cities the rate was 9.9 per 100,000, as against 11.0 in 1925. "Slight as it is, the reduction is encouraging," observes the collector of these statistics, Dr. Frederick L. Hoffman, writing in The Spectator, a New York City insurance journal. "But," he adds, "our murder record of approximately 12,000 persons each year is a most serious indictment of American civilization, and evidence of lawlessness which has no counterpart in any other country...

    Four dogs have been found beaten in the head and shot to death in rural southern Idaho, authorities said on Thursday, adding to the mysterious disappearance and killing of dozens of dogs that has left residents in that area on edge. Examinations showed that the German Shepherd mixes, whose carcasses had been dumped in a pile off a highway south of Twin Falls, had been bludgeoned and shot in the head, said Gary Trostel, deputy with the Twin Falls County Sheriff's Office. "We didn't know until today how they had died: poisoned or shot or what. We knew it was...

    When the Newtown shooting took the lives of 20 children, the nation was justifiably horrified. Journalists reported round the clock on ways to change public policy to prevent another shooting. But when seven children and a mother died in a Philadelphia abortion clinic dubbed a “house of horrors,” the major media couldn’t have cared less. It’s a news story that reads more like a Hollywood torture plot – “Saw” or “Hostel” or some other movie so foul that it makes you want to take a shower just having viewed it. Only this case is real and the media are keeping...

    BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- The defense for the teen accused of killing a Brunswick baby wants evidence released that may connect another local woman to the crime. Action News uncovered startling new details in the death of 13-month-old Antonio Santiago. According to police, 17-year-old De'Marquis Elkins murdered the Brunswick baby nearly two weeks ago. Now his attorney, Kevin Gough, claims someone else may have plotted to have the baby killed and used Elkins as the trigger man. Action News isn't releasing the woman's name because she hasn't been charged with a crime. "I know she hasn't been involved in anything. I...
  • UK cops make first arrests for 'hate crime' against emo subculture

    Two people were arrested in Britain Thursday over an assault on an "emo" teenager -- the first such move after police began recording attacks on subculture members as “hate crimes.” The term, short for “emotive” or “emotional,” usually refers to an introspective style of music -- somewhere between punk and grunge -- and its associated fashion styles. Earlier this month, Greater Manchester Police became the first force in the U.K. to treat attacks on groups such as goths, emos and punks in the same way as crimes based on race, religion, disability or sexual orientation. The 16-year-old victim was “distinctively...
  • Illegal immigrant in Milford death ruled incompetent

    The illegal immigrant who was drunk driving when he hit and dragged a Milford man to his death has been ruled incompetent to stand trial. Judge Janet Kinton-Walker says Nicolas Guaman's "unique cultural background" and language barrier means that he doesn't understand the court process. The court also said that he lacks the ability to consult with his attorney properly. The judge ordered Guaman's attorney to find an interpreter and educate him on the court process. In August 2011, 23-year-old Matthew Denice was hit and dragged to death while riding his motorcycle. FOX 25 spoke to Maureen Maloney, Matthew's mother,...
