    The first of four adults charged in January with the hate crime of a white special needs 18-year-old has been freed on probation in what many people are likely to believe is a rather light sentence compared to the crime. Brittany Covington narrated a Facebook Live video showing the special needs teen being tortured and humiliated in the Chicago apartment she shared with her sister Tanishia, who is still behind bars in this matter along with co-defendants Tesfaye Cooper and Jordan Hill.

    A gang of 10 MS-13 members brutally murdered a Maryland man by stabbing more than 100 times, beheading and dismembering him, and cutting out his heart, Maryland detectives say.

The attack is believed to have been carried out by the gang in early spring this year, officers write in the Statement of Charges....

    The jury in the first Twin Peaks trial of Dallas Bandido Jake Carrizal was leaning toward a not guilty decision on all three charges before the judge declared a mistrial on Friday. A member of the jury, who spoke to Channel 6 on the condition of anonymity, would not provide the exact split on any of the three charges. But, the juror said the final split on all three charges was in favor of a not guilty decision. The juror said during the course of nearly 16 hours of deliberations, there were points where the jurors were leaning toward Carrizal...

    Angel Soler's mother brought him to the U.S. as a young boy, figuring things would surely be better than in Honduras, where he had lived in one of the world's most violent cities. Javier Castillo's father made the same calculation when he took his young son out of gang-plagued El Salvador. Life in the leafy Long Island suburbs of New York didn't prove to be any safer.

    MSNBC. MS-13. Same struggle? In an amusing stumble on her MSNBC show this morning, Joy Reid momentarily seemed to confuse her own network with the notorious MS-13 criminal gang. Claiming that Virginia Republican candidate Ed Gillespie is running as a “neo-Confederate,” Reid said that he is using racial scare ads, “where he’s saying brown people are coming to kill you, because they’re all in MSN –" Reid seemed about to say “MSNBC,” before catching herself: “MS-13.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    There were warnings Friday about a possible upsurge in knockout attacks in which people are sucker punched for no good reason. Video of one such incident shows a woman being suddenly kicked and then punched by a man. She was knocked out cold on the ground, but rather than help her several people took out phones to take pictures. Nobody called the police. It happened in Pittsburgh more than a month ago, and something similar happened in Brooklyn on Thursday night. “As he went to tie up his dogs to confront these kids, the group distracted him from the front...

    RICHMOND — Former president Barack Obama took the unusual step of criticizing and mocking Virginia’s Republican gubernatorial candidate for a controversial ad blitz highlighting Latino gang violence. As he rallied for the Democratic candidate Ralph Northam on Thursday night, Obama mentioned that he and his wife, Michelle Obama, have seen Republican Ed Gillespie’s commercials airing on television in their D.C. home. The spots say Northam is “weak on MS-13” as images of tattooed Latino men and the gang motto “Kill, Rape, Control” pop up on the screen.

    Eight MS-13 gang members in the notorious crew's "Sailors Clique" faction participated in a violent racketeering conspiracy in and around Maryland, engaging in a terrifying campaign of murder, drug trafficking and extortion, federal prosecutors said Wednesday. The men were named in a superseding indictment returned last month by a federal jury, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney's office. The indictment alleged the eight men were members or associates of the MS-13 gang with ties to El Salvador. Branches of the gang were known to exist and function throughout Prince George’s County and Montgomery County, Md., prosecutors said.

    A Twin Peaks defendant is seeking to disqualify the McLennan County District Attorney's Office from prosecuting his case, claiming prosecutors engaged in "illegal and outrageous" conduct by releasing images of the biker and his wife having sex as part of the massive Twin Peaks discovery process. Houston attorney Paul Looney, who represents Cody Ledbetter, said Wednesday he intends to file a motion Thursday seeking to recall the Twin Peaks discovery because of photos and videos of Ledbetter and his wife having consensual sexual relations that were on Ledbetter's confiscated cellphone. "The district attorney and his assistants have committed numerous crimes...

The gunmen raped one of the girls, beat one of the young men so severely that he almost died, and left with the...

    A gang of drug traffickers machine-gunned a McDonald's after their demand for 40 free burgers with fries and soft drinks was turned down. Terrified customers - including some with young children - were seen hiding under tables and crouching down behind the counter at the fast food store in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro as they came under attack. One of the bandits was filmed telling a McDonald's manager what he wanted - before a suspected accomplice repeated his request for free food when his partner-in-crime was turned away.

    Twin Peaks defendant Matthew Clendennen wants to reopen the discussion about disqualifying McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna, but this time, he wants another judge to hear the motion. Clendennen's attorney, Clint Broden, filed a motion Thursday asking to reopen his request to disqualify Reyna from prosecuting Clendennen's case and seeking to recuse 54th State District Judge Matt Johnson only from rehearing the disqualification motion. Johnson rejected a similar motion from Broden last October. That ruling was upheld by Waco's 10th Court of Appeals. But while Broden is seeking a similar result, he is asking this time on different grounds...
