    North Carolina: Driver deliberately hits and kills 79-year-old woman, tries to hit four others in “random” attack OCT 22, 2019 12:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER Police “have not revealed a motive in the case.” In light of the fact that “there is no known connection between Alshabani and any of the victims,” is it possible that this was vehicular jihad attack? Sawan Ibrahim Alshabani’s surname is common in Saudi Arabia. And the Islamic State issued this call in September 2014: So O muwahhid, do not let this battle pass you by wherever you may be. You must strike the soldiers,...

    James Kraig Kahler intentionally shot and killed his wife, their two teenage daughters and Mrs. Kahler’s grandmother in 2009. Now he’s going to the Supreme Court. At his Kansas trial, the defense psychiatrist testified that Mr. Kahler had lost touch with reality due to a serious mental disorder. But the defendant couldn’t offer an insanity defense, because Kansas passed a law abolishing it in 1995. Some form of an insanity defense has been part of English law since the late Middle Ages.

    An assault at The Great Frederick Fair that ultimately led to a man’s death sparked questions about why the two teenage brothers allegedly involved were charged as juveniles. The two brothers — one 15, one 16 — could not automatically be charged as adults under Maryland law, Frederick County State’s Attorney Charlie Smith said at a press conference Monday. “I can tell you, I don’t make the law,” Smith said. “I just prosecute people who break it.” The 15-year-old was charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment, and the 16-year-old was charged with second-degree assault in the death...

    Jeffrey Epstein managed to pay women for their silence from jail, Page Six has exclusively learned. We’re told that at least two women familiar with the infamous multimillionaire pedophile were given envelopes of cash to keep quiet after he was arrested at Teterboro Airport on July 6. A source told us that the women were approached by a reporter to dish on their involvement with the creep and refused to talk to the journalist. The source said that an Epstein crony had also gotten in touch with them in mid-July about a financial arrangement.
