    What is going on lately with the growing trend of young parents or family of very young children killing them?! Another human waste of space, 24-year-old Zachary Tricoche of Pennsauken, N.J., repeatedly punched a two-year-old whose injuries from the punches resulted in his death on Saturday. The name of the mother was not reported, but the boy’s name was Jamil Baskerville Jr. Apparently this pile of garbage, Tricoche, was upset and had been fighting with the mother of the child, who was also his girlfriend, over her not buying some of the groceries he liked. Maybe Tricoche could get off...

    One of the men charged with killing the cousin of NBA star Dwyane Wade was "on his daily break from an electronic monitoring bracelet" at the time of the murder, Chicago police said Sunday. An exasperated Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie T. Johnson said at a news conference that Derren Sorrells' ankle monitor wasn't active when 32-year-old Nykea Aldridge was shot and killed in front of a school on Friday. Sorrells and his brother, Darwin Sorrells Jr., were charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder on Sunday.

    Two nuns who worked as nurses and helped the poor in rural Mississippi were found murdered in their home Thursday, and there were signs of a break-in and their vehicle was missing, according to officials. The nuns were identified as Sister Margaret Held and Sister Paula Merrill, Holmes County Coroner Dexter Howard said. It was too early to say how the nuns died, but it doesn't appear that they were shot, according to Durant Assistant Police Chief James Lee. Their bodies were taken to a state crime lab for autopsies. The two women, both nurse practitioners, were found Thursday morning...

In recent weeks, Wikileaks has released a torrent of information from inside the DNC — from emails to memos to...

"I'm not going to comment on what he may or may not have done for the United States government, but in the emails that were on Hillary Clinton's private server, there were conversations among her senior advisors about this gentleman," he said on "Face the Nation." Cotton was speaking about Shahram Amiri, who gave information to the U.S. about Iran's nuclear program.

    The father of slain Queens jogger Karina Vetrano had a bad back — and a worse feeling — when his devoted daughter left on her nightly run. The vivacious 30-year-old, who typically jogged alongside her dad, ignored his warning to avoid an overgrown trail and ran right into the hands of a merciless killer, cops said Wednesday. Though cops say it appears she fought desperately, her father, Philip Vetrano, found her lifeless body — strangled and likely raped — facedown amid the towering weeds about 15 feet off a desolate path in a Howard Beach park. Neighbors say the 10-foot-high...

Three armed, masked men burst into the living room of their Colorado Springs home demanding money from his mother, Courtney Beaudette, according to court records. When she said she didn't have any, the men told her to strip. She took off her shirt but refused to go further, the documents said. Amid the chaos, Beaudette's son ran to his room to retrieve the only money he had, a single dollar bill, the report said. Then the gun went off. ... Michael Ryan...

    Much of the media focus centering on the Republican and Democratic conventions dealt with the contrast between Donald Trump’s “dark vision” of America as opposed to Hillary Clinton’s cheerful, optimistic outlook. For proof of this, the Democrats chose to selectively highlight various statistics which show that, overall, crime rates in the United States remain lower now than they were during the historically high levels seen in the eighties and early nineties. That much is certainly true, but it’s equally accurate to point out that in certain places things have gotten considerably worse over the last several years, primarily in large,...

    After nearly a week of testimony and consideration given to the punishment he will face, a Seattle doctor who admitted to murdering his partner and their toddler son was sentenced to 49 years in prison -- the maximum allowed. Louis Chen, 44, pleaded guilty to reduced charges in February, wanting to avoid a trial. He was sentenced Friday by King County Superior Court Judge Bill Bowman. Chen's defense attorneys spent this week arguing that his mental problems -- and a possibly psychosis-inducing intake of cough syrup -- fueled actions he would otherwise have never committed. On those grounds, they lobbied...

    One of Hong Kong’s most notorious killers — an American expat dubbed the “Milkshake Murderer”– was back in court this week with a bid to get her life sentence reduced. Nancy Kissel earned her nickname in 2003, when she killed hubby Robert Kissel, a senior executive for Merrill Lynch, in their Hong Kong apartment — bludgeoning him to death after serving him a strawberry milkshake spiked with sedatives. After a dramatic, well-publicized trial, Kissel, now 51, was convicted of murder in 2005 and sentenced to life in prison at Hong Kong’s maximum security Tai Lam Centre for Women.

Five years later, the White House referred to the Hyde Amendment while defending taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. Now, the Democrats’ party platform is calling for repeal of the measure. According to a new poll, Americans are solidly opposed to public funding of abortion, including nearly half of voters who support abortion rights, and at least four out of 10 Democrats.

Brown overturned the recommendation of a parole board on Friday that found Leslie Van Houten was no-longer the violent young woman who committed a gruesome murder and was now fit for release. She has completed college degrees and been a model inmate. The Democratic governor acknowledged her success in prison and her youth at the time of the murders. However, he wrote in his decision...

The barbaric beheading of the impoverished child was perpetrated on video that surfaced this week, with smiling jihadists funded and armed by the U.S. government shouting “Allahu Akbar” as they sever the child's head. According to the Obama-backed terror group behind the horror, the boy was suspected of being a “spy” for the government.

The police force was out protecting protestors who were gathered peacefully to bring attention to the two shootings that took place in Louisiana and Minnesota, both of which were captured on camera. As the protests drew to a close, a lone sniper began firing on the crowd, targeting police officers. The shooter killed 5 and wounded 7....

    Already beset by a public outcry over the high-profile death of a black man in police custody and a rising murder rate, Baltimore's police department is facing another headache: it's shrinking fast. The number of uniformed officers in the mid-Atlantic city fell 6.1 percent last year and has shrunk by even more in the first half of this year, according to police data seen by Reuters and not previously reported. The fall in 2015 was the biggest decline in police numbers among nine comparably-sized U.S. cities reviewed by Reuters. The police force in Detroit and El Paso shrank by 4.9...

    This is not good, this is not good at all. I really don't want to engage this except to make a few points. I am sure the cops are going to say he was reaching for his gun. And it is hard to tell whether he was, or not, by the videos I have seen. But what I don't understand is why did it get to the point that he was being combative with the cops? You NEVER escalate any situation with the cops or you may end up a dead man. And what does it matter at this point...

    Swedish Left Party politician Barbro Sörman has suggested that it’s “worse” when Swedish men rape women, than when immigrants do so. “The Swedish men who rape do it despite the growing gender equality. They make an active choice. It’s worse imo [in my opinion],” Sörman tweeted. Sörman, a self-described socialist and a feminist, made the observation in response to what she claimed was excessive media focus on the fact that most of the rapes in Sweden are committed by immigrants. She explained that Swedish men are brought up in a society that believes in gender equality and therefore should be...

"Two deaths in two weeks. The family is really grieving." Horacio was found...

    EXCLUSIVE: One of the classified email chains discovered on Hillary Clinton's personal unsecured server discussed an Afghan national's ties to the CIA and a report that he was on the agency's payroll, a U.S. government official with knowledge of the document told Fox News. The discussion of a foreign national working with the U.S. government raises security implications – an executive order signed by President Obama said such unauthorized disclosures are 'presumed to cause damage to the national security." The U.S. government official said the Clinton email exchange, which referred to a New York Times report, was among 29 classified...
