    Hundreds of British police officers have been accused of engaging in the sexual abuse of victims, according to a report by UK top police watchdog ordered by then-Home Secretary Theresa May earlier this year.

This was something of a wildly unexpected data point. I can’t even fathom a guess as to what might account for this, but the actual difference in the number of cases is small enough that it may just be an expected statistical aberration. What’s more revealing here is the amount of work that John had to do to assemble these numbers. The reason...

The nearly three-minute video opts out of the traditional Rae Sremmurd's 'Black Beatles', which is typically used in the challenge. Instead, it plays the cheery song 'Easy Street' from the Walking Dead as the camera breezes through the precinct, revealing all kinds of mischief and holiday fun the officers are getting into. From new recruits to plain-clothed officers and high-ranking cops, it appears everyone took time out to participate in the video, which has been viewed more than 27,000 times.

In a list of demands assembled by several progressive student groups, GWU protesters say school officials should find a way of guaranteeing their safety during marches that doesn’t involve police. “The Fraternal Order of Police, the largest police union in the United States, has formally endorsed President-Elect Donald Trump,” the list says. “The FOP includes over 10,000 members in Washington D.C., many of which have jurisdiction over GW’s campus.

    The country’s largest police union, which endorsed Donald Trump for president, is wary of his stance on a key campaign issue: his promise to withhold funds from so-called “sanctuary cities.” As part of his first 100-days action plan, Mr. Trump has pledged to block all federal funding to jurisdictions that shield illegal immigrants. But in recent days, mayors and police chiefs in major cities across the country have pledged to stand behind their sanctuary city policies in defiance of Mr. Trump’s plans. The stance creates a conundrum for the National Fraternal Order of Police — which doesn’t support the sanctuary...
