    After giving a speech focusing in part on the erosion of trust between citizens and the police, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch thanked the prosecutor in the Michael Brown case for saying police officers in Missouri are "substandard," "lazy" and "incompetent." “You talked earlier about the support of varied and various departments," said Robert McCulloch, prosecuting attorney for St. Louis County, Missouri. "What I'd like to suggest, though, is that in my jurisdiction we have a number of departments that are substandard... and they tend to get substandard officers and they're paying them minimum wage in some cases - or...
  • Professors stick up for mob rule [University Tyranny]

    Miami Herald ^ | 2/01/2016 | Glenn Garvin
    Newspapers hardly run obituaries unless somebody pays for them, so you probably didn't see the official death notice of the English language a couple of weeks ago. When the University of Missouri released a letter from 115 faculty members supporting their colleague Melissa Click and demanding that the school "defend her First Amendment rights of protest and freedom to act as a private citizen," words lost all meaning. "First Amendment rights," in this case, are Click's rights to order a mob attack on a student journalist who was covering a protest on the Missouri campus last November. Notice the absence...

    Washington Post ^ | September 18, 2014 | Charles Cobb
    Many images that came out of Ferguson, Mo., last month looked like scenes from Birmingham, Ala., in the 1960s: the gun-wielding police officers, the sign-carrying protesters and the chants demanding equal treatment and human dignity. But thats where the similarities ended. For all the righteous indignation it inspired, the Ferguson turmoil has become the latest in a series of flash-in-the-pan causes that peter out without inspiring lasting movements for racial justice. As an organizer for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in Mississippi during the 60s, what I learned was the importance of organizing at the grass-roots and how even...

    Former University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe, who resigned from his post amid protests over the school's handling of racial matters on campus, sent a confidential email to supporters last week complaining about the incident. In the email, which was leaked to local media, Mr. Wolfe compiled a list of people he believed made it impossible for him to keep his job at the university, including outgoing Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin, ex-Mizzou football coach Gary Pinkel and the players that joined a strike, and an unnamed "significant Ferguson protester," most likely a reference to Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson....

    The suspended University of Missouri assistant professor who was charged with misdemeanor assault stemming from a confrontation with two student journalists during November's campus protests reached a deal Friday with prosecutors, getting community service but no jail time or fines if she stays out of trouble for a year. Columbia city prosecutor Steve Richey said he decided to forego pursuing the misdemeanor assault case against assistant communications professor Melissa Click, who has pledged no further illegal behavior for a year and to complete 20 hours of community service, he said in a statement.

    Defense Department bases no longer will accept driver’s licenses from five states as proof of ID -- a consequence of the implementation of a controversial post-9/11 law. The decision, which affects residents of Minnesota, Illinois, Missouri, New Mexico and Washington, was announced Wednesday. Residents from those five states, going forward, will need another form of ID such as a passport to enter. The move marks one of the first big changes after the government started to implement a 2005 security law known as the REAL ID Act. The legislation was meant to tighten standards for government-issued IDs – like driver’s...

    The Huffington Post's Politics The Blog ^ | October 1, 2015 | H.A. Goodman, columnist
    Perhaps nobody on the planet knows more about intelligence protocol than Edward Snowden. If Snowden says it's "completely ridiculous" to believe that Clinton's emails were safe, then yes, it's fair to include his viewpoint in any critique of Hillary Clinton's latest controversy. In addition, since I believe Senator Bernie Sanders is desperately needed at this point in U.S. history, and electing Clinton or a Republican would essentially be nominating the same president on war and foreign policy, it's important to address relevant analysis of the email controversy. There seems to be a bizarre paradigm of thought among some Democrats that...

Strain is building on a fault near Memphis, Tennessee that was the site of a magnitude 8.1 earthquake in 1812, according to new observations that settle a debate on the risk of another huge quake. The odds of another 8.0 event within 50 years are between 7 and 10 percent, geologists said today. The assessment, based on new data from a recently installed array...

Just before Christmas break, the 17-year-old wrote an opinion piece for the Central High school paper, the Centralizer. In it, he criticized the racially charged University of Missouri protests and opined that Michael Brown, the black teenager killed in 2014 by a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo., was "a delinquent" who was "at worst, justifiably killed, and at best, [was] a thug."

    For the past 15 years, police officers in Missouri have been required to record the ethnicity of drivers they stop on the roads, so the information can be examined for evidence of racial profiling. Reams of data now indicate that “driving while black” is a real offense in the eyes of some Missouri officers and departments. But “driving while gay”? New state legislation unveiled Tuesday would expand the current process of data collection that police officers in Missouri are required to follow during traffic stops to include not just race, but also “perceived” sexual orientation, as well as religion, “disability”...

Western Illinois University's mock election predicted a landslide victory for Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, with running mate Martin O'Malley, in 2016.

The famously accurate mock election correctly predicted the outcomes of the 2008 and 2012 elections, and the university claims it's the "largest and most elaborate mock presidential simulation in the nation."...

That is to say… “Resilience” is a book for everyone. The sub-title of Greitens’ book is “Hard-Won Wisdom for Living a Better Life.” Indeed, “Resilience” offers earned wisdom and insights that can help people forge ahead in times of struggle, and become stronger. But this is not a “how-to” book. It acknowledges serious traumas that can change...

    A bill in the Missouri Senate would prevent doctors from performing a selective abortion if a woman is seeking it solely because of a diagnosis of Down syndrome. Senate bill 802 is sponsored by Sen. David Sater, R-Cassville, and prohibits “abortions performed solely because of a prenatal diagnosis, test, or screening indicating Down Syndrome or the potential of Down Syndrome in an unborn child.” Studies suggest that nationwide more than 90 percent of women who receive a prenatal diagnosis indicating that their child will have Down syndrome end up aborting the child. Moreover, abortion after prenatal diagnosis has effectively reduced...

Prosecutors have been reviewing potential charges against Lervurance McDade, 60, in the death. But it appears that the shooting of Martinez Smith-Payne, 13, may be considered legal under Missouri's 2007 castle doctrine statute that permits use of deadly force in the face of "reasonable fear." The shot was fired from a distance of more than 70 feet away,...

    LONDON (Reuters) - A British animal genetics firm, working with U.S. scientists, has bred the world's first pigs resistant to a common viral disease, using the hot new technology of gene editing. Genus, which supplies pig and bull semen to farmers worldwide, said on Tuesday it had worked with the University of Missouri to develop pigs resistant to Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSv). The condition, also known as blue-ear disease, can be fatal as it affects the animals' immune system and costs farmers hundreds of millions of dollars a year. There is no cure.

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (CN) - A Missouri lawmaker wants to require gun buyers to meet victims of gun violence, tour trauma centers, consult with a physician and comply with a gauntlet of restrictions similar to those faced by Missouri women who seek an abortion.

Stacey Newman, D-Clayton, pre-filed House Bill 1397 last week, which would require anyone who buys a gun in Missouri to be subject to constraints strikingly similar to those in the state's abortion laws. Missouri law requires women who want an abortion to submit to a 72-hour mandatory delay, confer with two physicians, sign an...

    Eight-term Missouri Congressman Sam Graves on Monday endorsed Ted Cruz for president. Said Graves of northwest Missouri: “I have personally seen Ted Cruz stand up and fight on the issues that matter the most to conservatives, even when it wasn’t popular in Congress. He has never wavered. He has always stood on principle. And he has always put the American people first.” Graves’ long-time campaign consultant Jeff Roe is running Cruz’s campaign, so the endorsement is not a big surprise. “As threats emerge – from ISIS, to Russia, to the Iranian nuclear program – we need a president with the...

    The St. Louis Rams have lost four straight games after a 4-3 start, the latest being a desultory 31-7 loss in Cincinnati on Sunday. Just don't try to tell coach Jeff Fisher that his team isn't trying. "Anyone implies that it's an effort issue, they can kiss my ass," Fisher said. "There's no effort problems on this team. That's what happens when teams lose four in a row is people say it's effort. Come to practice, watch this team play and ask any other opponent or opposing coach. It's not an effort issue right now. "It's execution. It's 70 percent...
