    A 38-year-old Milwaukee woman was charged with homicide Wednesday after she admitted killing her child's father, with whom she had a volatile relationship for at least 10 years, according to court records.

When Thompson overpowered her and took the weapon, Marker feared he would cut her, so she ran to the kitchen for another knife. As Thompson came toward...

Why not: Nothing else has worked. First, Minneapolis police tried ignoring the problem. But dozens of victims, videos, witnesses, police reports and 911 calls made that impossible. Then they tried denying it: A spokesman for Minneapolis police department told me that race has nothing to do with anything involving crime and anyone who thinks differently is a bad person.

But while the raw emotions around the Wednesday night shooting of Vonderrit D.

    Denmark is a tiny country half the size of Maine. Why should we care about what happens there?Because it foreshadows our future. And without a major course correction, the picture is bleak. First and foremost, Denmark (like most European countries) has allowed Muslim immigration to swell as the nation has embraced multiculturalism and dhimmitude. The country is paying a heavy price for its shortsightedness. Muslims comprise just under 5% of the population of Denmark. Five percent may not sound like a lot, but it doesn’t take a lot to wreak havoc on a nation. Per a series of Gatestone Institute...

    The fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old named Michael Brown by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, this August triggered weeks of riots and looting, as well as nonstop media coverage. The press quickly developed a formula for reporting on the “unrest,” as the media still call such violence: select some aspect of Ferguson’s political or civic culture; declare that feature racist, by virtue of its being associated with Ferguson; disregard alternative explanations for the phenomenon; blame riots on it. Bonus move: generalize to other cities with similar “problems.” Some examples: Ferguson’s population is two-thirds black, but five of...

    TRAVERSE CITY — Alyce Morales' sobs hung in a Benzie County courtroom as she told a judge that panic gripped her after she secretly gave birth to a daughter in a tent. Morales, 19, of Cicero, Illinois, said she felt sorry every day since July 22, 2013, for what happened next. She closed her fist and struck herself before hitting her daughter, Marie, with a blow that fractured the infant's skull. "I was in a really bad situation. I was alone and scared. I didn't think anything was going to happen, so I panicked," she said Tuesday. "I know that's...

    Albany Officials at one of the state's largest public labor unions shielded a downstate council leader from potential prosecution after she allegedly used a union debit card to make at least $20,000 in questionable purchases — including liquor, restaurant bills and home improvement items. Several people familiar with the matter, and internal documents filed with the Albany-based Public Employees Federation, indicate PEF's leaders asked to handle the matter as an internal "ethics violation" when contacted several months ago by the office of Rockland County District Attorney Thomas P. Zugibe. The union represents more than 53,000 state government workers. The district...

With no plea bargain offered, Ketut Pujayasa, 29, in a Miami federal courtroom changed his plea to guilty on charges of attempted murder and aggravated sexual assault.

    Self-described 'dissident feminist' Camille Paglia has written an op-ed piece for Time Magazine arguing that female college students are naive and careless about the true nature of men as sexual predators. Paglia, 67, a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, penned the column this week in reaction to the recent abduction of University of Virginia sophomore Hannah Graham, 18, who was last seen two weeks ago in the company of a 32-year-old nursing assistant. Jesse Matthew was captured in Texas last week and charged with abduction with intent to defile, but so far there is no sign...
  • Michigan Supreme Court Justice Suggests Legislature Clarify Criminal Intent Statutes

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 9/24/2014 | Anne Schieber
    Michigan Supreme Court Justice Stephen Markman wants state lawmakers to clarify statutes that criminalize administrative offenses. Offenders are often surprised when they are charged with a “strict liability public welfare offense” because it is not obvious the act is a crime. Michigan has a number of such statutes on the books, such as driving a snowmobile that is too loud or modifying private property that a regulator may view as a protected wetland. The acts are often misdemeanors punishable by a fine, but if convicted the offenders have a criminal record, impeding their ability to find a job or get...

    The party in the new club continued into the wee hours Sunday morning. Strawberry daiquiris flowed. Music from DJ Bay Bay pulsed. Teens were chilling and dancing. Then came the gunfire. Witnesses said they heard dozens of rounds, maybe 100, rip through a storefront Miami nightclub called The Spot, wedged between a furniture store and a smoke shop. When the gunfire stopped, 15 young people were wounded, bloodied and dazed, the youngest of them 11 years old, the oldest 25. “Young people now, throughout the United States — Chicago or Miami or LA or wherever you’re at, even in small...

    There were no demonstrators outside the Ferguson Police Department or on the city's main business center Sunday afternoon, yet the wounding overnight of two police officers in apparently unrelated incidents left the troubled Missouri city far from at ease.. Tensions flared in the St. Louis suburb over the weekend after officials said a Ferguson police officer was shot in the arm Saturday while chasing a suspect outside the city's community center. In a separate shooting incident shortly after midnight early Sunday morning, an off-duty St. Louis city officer was hurt by breaking glass after the occupants of another vehicle shot...

    EARLIER this month, my iPhone vanished. I looked up its location on an app called Find My Friends that my wife and I use, and I had a shock: The app said my phone was in a house 15 miles away, in a neighborhood that I’d never visited. I drove there. It was night. The house looked creepy. My wife stayed in the car, cellphone in hand, ready to summon the cavalry. I walked to the front door and rang the doorbell. Nothing. The lights were on, so I rang again and knocked hard. I spent five minutes ringing the...
