  • These images from the Holocaust are even more chilling in color

    These harrowing pictures of a teenage girl awaiting her torture and death at the hands of Nazi torture specialists lay bare the tragic human toll of the Holocaust. The gaunt face of 14-year-old prisoner Czesława Kwoka stares back through time in a haunting Auschwitz mugshot restored this year by Brazilian artist Marina Amaral. Taken just minutes after she was beaten to within an inch of her life, the images give a human face to one of the concentration camp’s 1.1 million victims.

A Russian media source said Glushkov, the former boss of the state airline Aeroflot, who said he feared he was on a Kremlin hit-list,...

    A federal judge ruled Monday that Minneapolis Police Officer Mohamed Noor will not have to answer questions about the shooting death of Justine Damond in a separate court battle that also involves allegations of police misconduct. Noor is one of three Minneapolis police officers accused of forcing their way into a woman's home two months before the Damond incident. The woman, Teresa Graham, claims the officers violated her constitutional rights by sending her to the hospital against her will while alleging she was in the throes of a mental health crisis. Graham's attorney, Jordan Kushner, argued the two incidents could...

    Police in Austin say "similarities" between two deadly package explosions in Texas' capital city this month lead them to believe the incidents are related.

    After 24 years any mystery surrounding the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman is over ... because O.J. Simpson confessed. Fox aired "O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession?" Sunday night and Simpson walked author Judith Regan through what happened on June 12, 1994. He starts out adamant -- he was just talking hypothetically, which is weird, because if he didn't do it what's his basis for creating the hypothetical. Simpson starts by talking about his "friend Charlie" ... whom he says for some reason went to Nicole's to snoop around. He says Charlie came over to Simpson's home, told...
  • Russian state TV warns 'traitors' of the dangers of living in Britain

    03/11/2018 11:23:56 AM PDT · by BBell · 11 replies
    A presenter on Russian state television has issued an apparent threat to "traitors" living in Britain. Kirill Kleymenov warned of the dangers of spying on Russia and advised those who betrayed their country: "Don't choose Britain as a place to live." The comments, made on Channel One's Vremya news programme on Wednesday evening, came amid speculation over who was behind the attempted murder of a double agent on British soil. "I don't wish death on anyone, but, purely for educational purposes, I have a warning for anyone who dreams of such a career," he reportedly said. "The profession of a...

    There is a new push in antiabortion circles to pass state laws aimed at barring women from terminating their pregnancies after the fetus has been determined to have Down syndrome. These laws are unconstitutional, unenforceable and wrong. This is a difficult subject to discuss because there are so many parents who have and cherish a child with Down syndrome. Many people with Down syndrome live happy and fulfilled lives. The new Gerber baby with Down syndrome is awfully cute. I have had two children; I was old enough, when I became pregnant, that it made sense to...

    When 27-year-old Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich was shot dead in Washington, D.C., on July 8, 2016, the news had just broken that WikiLeaks was publishing a trove of embarrassing and damning DNC e-mails. And while the official story is that the leaked e-mails had nothing to do with Richs murder, that story falls apart under scrutiny.That official story is that Rich was killed during a robbery in an area of the city with escalating levels of crime, including armed robbery. But when Rich who was shot twice in the back at close range was found,...

    Last year it was widely reported that the vast majority of murders in the U.S. occur within a very small portion of the country. More than half of all murders in the U.S. occurred within just two percent of the counties. Over two-thirds (68 percent) of the murders in America occurred within only five percent of the counties. (There are 3,141 counties, or county equivalents, in the U.S.) This table shows the worst three percent of counties, in which almost 60 percent of the murders occur. Almost all of these counties are in large urban areas, where democrats rule. Of...
  • Court Forces Doctor to Euthanize Patient or Face Professional Sanction

    A court in Ontario, Canada, has ruled that a patient’s desire to be euthanized trumps a doctor’s conscientious objection. Doctors there now face the cruel choice between complicity in what they consider a grievous wrong—killing a sick or disabled patient—and the very real prospect of legal or professional sanction.A little background: In 2015, the Supreme Court of Canada conjured a right to lethal-injection euthanasia for anyone with a medically diagnosable condition that causes irremediable suffering—as defined by the patient. No matter if palliative interventions could significantly reduce painful symptoms, if the patient would rather die, it’s the patient’s right to be...

    Dont count on running into Chicago police Superintendent Eddie Johnson at a screening of the Chicago-set remake of Death Wish. The Bruce Willis movie is not the type of narrative we want for our city, Johnson said Friday, criticizing MGM for releasing the violent revenge fantasy so soon after the killing of Chicago police Cmdr. Paul Bauer in the Loop. Its unfortunate, Johnson told WLS-AM 890s Bill Cameron on Friday when he was asked about the timing of the release of the movie, which opens with the downtown killing of a police officer. But of course I dont think Hollywood...

    When Lamonte McIntyre was exonerated for a double murder in October, he walked out of a Kansas prison with a clean record but not a dime to his name, reports CBS News Dean Reynolds. After losing 23 years of his life behind bars, the state is offering him nothing. Kansas is one of 18 states that offer wrongfully convicted prisoners no compensation at all upon their release. I think its unjust, but me being angry about it is not going to change it, McIntyre said. Tricia Bushnell of the Innocence Project worked to win McIntyres release. She said McIntyre...

    A Missouri man who once threatened to kill all white people was indicted Friday in the killings of three white males, and is now accused in six killings overall. The accused, Fredrick Demond Scott, 23, was indicted by a grand jury in the deaths of David Lenox, 67, Timothy Rice, 57, and Michael Darby, 61. Scott was also charged last summer in the deaths of Steven, Gibbons, 57, John Palmer, 54 and Karen Harmeyer, 64. The five male victims were all shot as they walked on or near the trails or, in one case, walked home after getting off a...

Ordinarily, the LVMPD does not release information about an ongoing investigation.This is an ongoing investigation and is not a complete report. However, the report lists a number of preliminary conclusions that many people will disagree with. Whether you disagree or not, the report contains a wealth of information and...

Trinity Carr was 17 when a Family Court Judge found her guilty of criminally negligent homicide and third-degree criminal conspiracy.

    With the clearly unethical and most likely criminal behavior of the upper management levels of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) exposed by Chairman Devin Nunes of the House Intelligence Committee, there are two complementary areas that have been conveniently swept under the rug. The first deals with the murder of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich, and the second deals with the alleged hacking of the DNC server by Russia. Both should be of prime interest to special counsel Robert Mueller, but do not hold your breath. The facts that we...

    Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has said that people who murdered white farmers during a government-sanctioned purge in the 2000s will never be prosecuted. The 93-year-old president addressed a rally in Harare on Monday to mark Heroes Day, which commemorates soldiers who have fought for the country, particularly in its independence war against British colonizers. Zimbabwe implemented a controversial land reform program in 2000 that saw squatters invade and seize hundreds of white-owned farms around the country. The violent seizures resulted in the murder of several white farmers, with many more displaced, and close associates of Mugabe given large chunks of...

    The man who killed 17 people at a South Florida high school had more than half his rounds remaining when he dropped his rifle and fled, a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation told CNN. The shooter had fired about 150 times when he dropped his AR-15-style rifle and escaped from school property by blending in with fleeing students. He left 180 rounds of ammo unused, the official said. "Investigators have found indications that the shooter may have tried to break a window, which leads them to believe he wanted to use the area as a sniper's perch to...
