    JOSE Amaya Guardado didn’t stand a chance. First, they hacked him with a machete. Then, they buried him alive out in the forest. And to celebrate the crime, two of his attackers then had sex beside the shallow grave, where he was still breathing. This horrific crime, committed by four students against their fellow classmate, has shocked the US state of Florida.

    An administrator at the University of Wisconsin-Madison suggested at a recent roundtable conversation that, in order to combat "overpolicing" in the community, police should no longer respond to shoplifting claims at large stores such as Wal-Mart, and shouldn't agree to prosecute people caught stealing. "I just don't think that they should be prosecuting cases ... for people who steal from Wal-Mart. I just don't think that, right?" said UW-Madison director of community relations Everett Mitchell. "I don't think [with] Target or all them other places, them big box stores that have insurance, they should be using justification, the fact that...

    A black criminal resists or attacks a white cop or a mostly non-black watchman, and dies as a result, and the whole country spins wildly into paroxysms of hysteria. Orgies of non-stop rioting and looting commence. Police departments and municipal governments enact emergency measures, costing taxpayers millions upon millions of dollars. Lawyers, politicians, and officials hustle to the microphones. Reporters, analysts, and pundits go into hyper-drive. Businesses burn to the ground. Entire city blocks explode in flames and mayhem and murder. The federal government doles out mountains of cash for leftist community agitators to go in and egg on the...

    In a recent panel discussion on poverty at Georgetown University, President Barack Obama gave another demonstration of his mastery of rhetoric — and disregard of reality. One of the ways of fighting poverty, he proposed, was to "ask from society's lottery winners" that they make a "modest investment" in government programs to help the poor. Since free speech is guaranteed to everyone by the First Amendment to the Constitution, there is nothing to prevent anybody from asking anything from anybody else. But the federal government does not just "ask" for money. It takes the money it wants in taxes, usually...

Monroeville Mayor Gregory Erosenko said he will reopen a police substation inside the mall that had been closed for a couple of years. “We aren't going to tolerate this at all,” Erosenko said. But District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala said officials have long known trouble was on the way. A consultant hired by the District Attorney's Office urged mall officials to upgrade security...

    A Huntsville man doomed by his own testimony, according to his lawyer, was convicted today of raping a woman passed out in the bathroom during a Fourth of July party last year. Jason Scott McNeal, 36, was convicted of first-degree rape - having sex with a person unable to consent because they were physically helpless or mentally incapacitated - after the jury deliberated for more than two hours. McNeal's father testified on his son's behalf, telling jurors the younger McNeal was not a violent person. But his claim was likely undermined for the jury after McNeal's father admitted on cross-examination...

Lynch's comments provide insight into her mindset and raise unsettling questions about her commitment to equal justice and the rights of the accused. The event took place on September 28, 2007. The wounds were still raw for members of the Duke lacrosse team, their families, and in a sense, the entire nation. That same month, Michael Nifong, the former District Attorney who had knowingly pursued...

    The Rev. Al Sharpton has always been keen to maintain his reputation as the least plausible cleric since Elmer Gantry. The racial tension and riots in Ferguson, Mo. have proved to be the perfect vehicle to do just that.

With that, Sharpton’s group, the National Action Network (NAN) has put out a list of national protest sites, because apparently just one city experiencing hellish violence and racial strife just isn’t...
