    A registered sex offender on the lam after being convicted in a Chicago home invasion may be in or traveling to Southern California, federal officials said Thursday. He walked out of the Leighton Criminal Courthouse in Chicago on Nov. 8 and had not returned by the time his guilty verdict was read later that same day, Cook County sheriff’s officials told the Chicago Sun-Times. The FBI believes he’s corresponded with associates in Riverside County and could be traveling in Southern California. The convict should be considered armed and dangerous, officials said. A reward of up to $50,000 has been attached...

    Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik told Breitbart News Tonight Thursday evening that the FBI should classify Antifa as a “domestic terror group.” He offered his remarks in an interview with SiriusXM hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak. Kerik’s comments were made during a discussion of left-wing activists threatening and intimidating Tucker Carlson’s family on Wednesday night outside of the Carlson family’s home in Washington, D.C.

    The white Dallas cop who fatally shot her black neighbor after confusing his apartment for her own told investigators that he ignored her “verbal commands” and all she could see was a “large silhouette” — so she opened fire. Amber Guyger had just entered the fourth floor residence, which was dark, and thought she was being burglarized, according to her arrest affidavit. The 30-year-old claimed during police interviews that the front door was slightly ajar, so when she went to use her key it pushed open on its own. Upon entering, Guyger said she saw the “large silhouette” — which...

    In the Aurora, Colorado, home invasion, the home owners killed the perp. The people who lived there used proper procedure to call the police. Did the noise of the gunfire to kill the perp temporarily deafen the home owner? Is there a means for the police to better communicate in such a situation? I think using a silencer goes too far. But what about a device that makes the noise something that would not interfere with hearing. There is a big difference between firing a handgun indoors versus outdoors in terms of the noise. In this example, should gun owners...
