    California Gov. Jerry Brown denied parole for the youngest follower of murderous cult leader Charles Manson who is serving a life sentence for killing a wealthy grocer and his wife more than 40 years ago. 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...

    As if Americans needed another reason to rein in the out-of-control government in Washington, D.C., jihadist Syrian “rebels” backed and “vetted” by the Obama administration and neocons in Congress beheaded a 12-year-old boy. 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 group, which received heavy military equipment and funding from Obama, claimed it...

    When communication about the unspeakable stupidity of the recent U.S. 231 rock-throwing incidents first popped into my email inbox a couple months back, the subject line made me gasp. "Rock throwing arrests," read the line heralding arrival of an email from Owen County Prosecutor Don VanDerMoere, a likable former deputy prosecutor for Putnam County who still keeps in contact. Before I could even click to open it, my heart was pounding and my mind went to thoughts like, "Oh, my god they finally caught those guys." However, it was a leap of faith to a wrong conclusion. Instead we have...

A wonderful person.” Joycelyn Jackson said that she understands the anger behind the movement Black Lives Matter but that “God gives nobody the right to kill and take another person’s life.”...

It should for all Americans.

The five officers, Brent Thompson, Patrick Zamarripa, Michael Krol, Lorne Ahrens and Michael Smith all had distinguished careers before joining the Dallas police department. 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...

You NEVER escalate any situation with the cops or you may end up a dead man. And what does it matter at this point...

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...

    Chicago man arrested for murder just after suing police Reuters By Fiona Ortiz June 8, 2016 By Fiona Ortiz CHICAGO (Reuters) - Chicago police on Wednesday arrested a man suspected of murder, shortly after he left his own news conference where he announced he was suing the city for $15 million over an incident two years ago when he alleged being shot seven times by a police officer. Dominiq Greer was arrested after he and his attorney, Eugene Hollander, announced the federal lawsuit, which alleges excessive force by police who shot Greer on July 4, 2014, as he ran from...

    Civility Two years ago, Stephen Henderson won a Pulitzer Prize. I’ll let you decide what you think that says about the state of journalism, especially as you consider what he wrote late last week. Henderson, the editorial page editor of the Detroit Free Press (and a Facebook friend of mine, at least as I type this), has become increasingly hysterical in the past year - seeing racism behind almost every perceived societal ill and ascribing to conservative policymakers not just mistaken thinking but, invariably, an intent to hurt people. But his column of this past Saturday took the cake. A...
  • After twin sisters plummeted off a Hawaii cliff, one died. The other was charged with murder.

    At the beginning of the decade, Alison and Ann Dadow were well-known yoga entrepreneurs who drove matching Porsches, as identical as they were, around West Palm Beach, Fla. In late May, the 37-year-old twins plunged over the edge of a cliff in Hawaii and fell 200 feet in a Ford Explorer, which crumpled like an old soda can when it hit the slick, jagged rocks peeking out of the Pacific Ocean below. Ann, sitting in the front passenger seat, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her sister Alison was rushed to the hospital in critical condition and on Monday was...

Graswald appeared to confess to the murder last year, but later denied her guilt and said she confessed under pressure. Graswald told ABC News last year that she loved Viafore and wouldn't have done anything to kill him. Moscato testified Monday as part of a...

    Problematic, in a very big way even if the offer was made.Qatar’s ties to Al Qaeda and ISIS aren’t news. They’ve effectively served as intermediaries in everything from ransom exchanges for hostages to Taliban negotiations. But actually trying to secure terrorist swaps for prisoners on their own behalf would have been a new frontier. Before he was released from a U.S. maximum-security prison last week, a confessed al Qaeda sleeper agent was offered up in a potential prisoner swap that would have freed two Americans held abroad.According to two individuals with direct knowledge of the case, the proposition was...

Mr. Beede was beaten up on May 22 and suffered blunt force trauma to his brain, the police said. He died seven days later. Law enforcement officials said they were not ruling out the...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Following controversy over undercover videos filmed by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) into the practices of Planned Parenthood, a lawmaker in California has introduced a bill that would make secretly recording inside abortion facilities punishable by up to a year behind bars. “It is the intent of the legislature to enact legislation to prohibit any person from intentionally video recording a confidential communication, or disclosing or distributing that video-recording communication, without obtaining the consent of all parties to the communication,” A.B. 1671, introduced by Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez ,reads. It criminalizes any person who “intentionally discloses or...

    “The unborn person does not have constitutional rights.” – Hillary Clinton (April 3, 2016) It’s wrong to kill a person, but permissible to exterminate a rat. By this logic the average Nazi could convince himself killing Jews was okay since Jews were “rats”—dangerous and disease-carrying rats. So observes David Livingstone Smith in his 2012 book, Less than Human: Why We Demean, Enslave, and Exterminate Others. Lightstock The basic observation of Smith’s book is that people will dehumanize their enemies before enslaving, torturing, or killing them. The Hutus of Rwanda regarded the Tutsi as “cockroaches” and clubbed them to death by the hundreds of...
