    FULL TITLE: Oregon mom, 25, sentenced to life in prison for savagely beating her four-year-old son to death because he 'walked and talked gay' A 25-year-old Oregon mother has been sentenced to life in prison for the beating murder of her four-year-old son, who slowly died of severe abuse in a homeless shelter.

    A 24-year-old Homosassa man was charged Thursday with suffocating his 1-year-old son because he wanted to have time to play video games, the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office said.

    Registered users of the Internet’s largest white supremacist forum – dubbed “a magnet for the deadly and deranged” -- have carried out nearly 100 murders in the past five years, a group that tracks “hate groups” reported Thursday. The report by the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center found users of Stormfront.org, which advocates “white power,” have been disproportionately responsible for some of the most deadly hate crimes and mass killings since the site’s founding in 1995. “Stormfront is the murder capital of the racist Internet,” said Heidi Beirich, report author and Intelligence Project director. “It has been a magnet for...

A year later, his three alleged killers, including a senior government official, are on trial for murder. The dumping has been halted and villagers are erecting a statue to their slain hero.

We identified 10 people, including Groves, who were beaten, burned, suffocated, or shot to death in 2013 and whose cases were reclassified as death investigations, downgraded to more minor crimes, or even closed as noncriminal incidents—all for illogical or, at best, unclear reasons.

    Chicago police are reporting that the murder rate for the first quarter of the year is the lowest it’s been in more than 50 years, which gun advocates are attributing to a concealed carry law passed in Illinois last year. The first three months of 2014 have seen the fewest number of homicides since 1958 — six fewer than this time in 2013, and 55 fewer than this time in 2012, The Chicago Sun-Times reported. Gun-rights advocates argue that concealed carry laws can reduce crime and keep the population safer. The state began accepting applications for permits in January.

As soon as the US Secretary flew off to Brussels, he sent out applications for “the independent Palestinian state” to join 12 UN agencies as members.

    The Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case has abortion activists extremely riled up. The way they carry on, you’d think that David Green was personally mandating whether or not his female employees could have sex and use birth control. Of course, Hobby Lobby already covers 95% of prescription birth control — they’re just not willing to cover abortifacients like IUDs, Ella, and Plan B. And they aren’t preventing anyone from using it, either. They just don’t want to pay for it. This is evidently unthinkable, and predictably, the pro-aborts are losing their minds over it.
