    The Alameda County District Attorney filed a felony charge against Kyle Chapman yesterday for possession of a leaded stick. The charges stem from a melee between Trump supporters and anti-fascists in Berkeley on March 4. Chapman was seen carrying a long baton into several fights and was filmed cracking the weapon over the heads of a masked antifa and other counter-demonstrators.

    Darryl Howard, who was released from prison last year after a judge overturned his convictions in the 1991 murders of a Durham woman and her teenage daughter, is suing the city of Durham and a police officer he says fabricated and suppressed evidence. The civil suit was filed in U.S. District Court last month and names the city, four then-employees of the Durham Police Department, and a Durham fire official as defendants. The lawsuit claims the defendants violated Howard's constitutional rights and seeks compensatory and punitive damages. Durham City Attorney Patrick Baker said the city is reviewing the suit and...

    Sept. 12: The NCAA, citing a commitment to fairness and inclusion, announces it would move seven championship events from the state of North Carolina. That included first- and second-round games for the NCAA men's basketball tournament that were slated for Greensboro, N.C., for March 17-19, 2017. It is in direct response to the state's passing of House Bill 2, also known as the "bathroom bill," which critics say discriminates against the LGBT community.

    Duke athletes were attacked when the liberal and soon to be disbarred DA, Mike Nifong, unjustly prosecuted Duke Lacrosse players in the infamous hooker rape case. Now, another disbarred attorney, Barak Hussein Obama set into motion the conditions that propelled the Duke basketball team to lose in the NCAA tournament. Obama wanted to protect confused little boys that don't want to pee in urinals or girls who do. The governor of North Carolina signed into law a bill that the ever PC NCAA protested by moving the 2017 tourney out of Greensboro, North Carolina. So Duke, a 2 seed, played...
  • When Black Lies Matter - 30 for 30 'Fantastic Lies'

    04/30/2016 2:16:00 PM PDT · by StCloudMoose · 14 replies
    the story of a black female stripper who made up a lie to blame a white lacrosse team of a gang rape as a distraction when she needed a defence to prevent the state from taking her children away from her. then a white prosecutor; seeking re-election knowingly, withheld evidence that cleared the lacrosse team. The white prosecutor overwhelmly won the black votes until the truth came out. The first five minutes of "Fantastic Lies" might make lacrosse fans cringe. White privileged athletes. Partyers. A de facto frat house. The labels thrown out, true or not, will likely lure a...

    This story is part one in a two-part investigative series. The second part will examine the culture in the Parking and Transportation Services Department and will be published later this week. A parking attendant has alleged that Executive Vice President Tallman Trask, the University’s primary financial and administrative officer, used a racial slur after hitting her with his car. EVP Tallman Trask oversees Duke’s finances and administration. The parking attendant, Shelvia Underwood of Raleigh-based McLaurin Parking and Transportation, claims that Trask hit her with with his vehicle Aug. 30, 2014, before a Duke football game against Elon University, and called...

    Pope Center for Higher Education Policy ^ | February 22, 2016 | K.C. Johnson
    Next month will be the tenth anniversary of the spring break party that triggered the Duke lacrosse case. That incident probably remains the highest-profile false rape claim in recent U.S. history—rivaled only by the claim against University of Virginia fraternity members leveled, and then retracted, by Rolling Stone. That both of these false accusations occurred on a campus should come as no surprise. A general disinterest in due process for accused students combined with a one-sided intellectual atmosphere on questions related to gender make universities poorly suited to evaluate sexual assault allegations. The lacrosse case, moreover, added race and class...

    AUTOPSY REPORTS AN AMERICAN GOTHIC OF PAIN, SORROW "We don't want to distrust our law enforcement so much that we live in fear of getting shot on a lazy Sunday afternoon." - an investigator Waco - No one associated with the community of grieving bikers and their families touched by the tragedy of a police "shoot-out" at Twin Peaks on May 17 is surprised by the facts as they trickle out in dribs and drabs. Calling certain items "discovery" is as ridiculous as the ethnocentric notion that Columbus "discovered" a civilization that had an advanced architecture, celestial observatories, calendars and...

    Six Shooter Junction - Video from DPS pole cameras and in-car video from Waco Police Officer Michael Bucher's unit will not be provided until "after analysis" if attorneys sign an extensive "agreement on discovery and nondisclosure of evidence," an examination of the proffered document shows. Officer Michael Bucher is an alleged shooter involved in the rifle fire of Waco Police Officers on May 17 at Twin Peaks Restaurant at a Confederation of Clubs meeting that left 9 dead, 20 wounded, and the arrest of 177 persons. A Grand Jury in November cleared he and two other officers of any wrongdoing...

    The Atlantic ^ | July 21, 2015
    Why is Waco, Texas, fighting to suppress multiple videos of the shootout that killed nine bikers at the Twin Peaks restaurant on May 17? Why are some attorneys in the case now prohibited from talking to the press? And why haven’t Waco officials revealed how many of the nine victims were killed by bullets from police officers’ guns? snip Here are two theories. One is the official explanation. Authorities say that this is a complex investigation that takes lots of time and that suppressing video evidence and issuing gag orders is necessary to prevent prospective jurors from being influenced by...

    McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna addressed the deadly brawl for the first time on Wednesday. Reyna was at the scene with law enforcement on Sunday which is unusual. District attorneys and prosecutors don't normally get involved in the working of a scene, but Reyna says this one was definitely an exception. Reyna's office has been assisting Waco police and the McLennan County Sheriff's Office in any way it can. Reyna says it is still very early in the investigation. Once the investigation is complete and all of the evidence is processed, Reyna says Waco PD will provide his office...

    ‘They came with a battering ram.” Cindy Archer, one of the lead architects of Wisconsin’s Act 10 — also called the “Wisconsin Budget Repair Bill,” it limited public-employee benefits and altered collective-bargaining rules for public-employee unions — was jolted awake by yelling, loud pounding at the door, and her dogs’ frantic barking. The entire house — the windows and walls — was shaking. She looked outside to see up to a dozen police officers, yelling to open the door. They were carrying a battering ram. She wasn’t dressed, but she started to run toward the door, her body in full...

    CBS News ^ | April 12, 2015 | Armen Keteyian
    This week on 60 Minutes, Armen Keteyian interviewed Coach Mike Pressler, the lacrosse coach who was forced to resign after three of his players were accused of brutally attacking and raping an exotic dancer at a team party in 2006. It's a story 60 Minutes co-producers Michael Radutzky and Tanya Simon remember well. They followed the case from the time the accusations were made in March of 2006 -- to a year later in 2007 when the players were declared innocent. In that time, 60 Minutes produced three detailed reports on the strange details surrounding the case, and conducted interviews...

    American Thinker ^ | December 14, 2014 | R. B. Parrish
    The first thing President Teresa Sullivan of the University of Virginia needs to do in the wake of what now appears to be a faux rape scandal is to apologize to the victims – that is, to the members of Phi Kappa Psi, who have been vilified, forced to move off campus into motels, and suffered suspicions even from family members and close friends. That would be the human and moral response. That Sullivan will not do so is nearly as certain as the chance of her taking false accusations as a matter that needs university attention. This is for...

    Teresa Sullivan, the president of the University of Virginia — the campus at the heart of the Rolling Stone magazine debacle over its since-debunked rape claim piece — has become the target of a Change.org petition that calls for her immediate firing. The petition has only gathered a few signatures so far, but its text is blunt. It reads: "University of Virginia president Teresa Sullivan vandalized our legal system by immediately assuming the guilt of innocent men after an anonymous accuser without evidence cried, 'Rape!' Sullivan suspended activities of all fraternities (not just the one fraternity the accuser mentions), and...

    It was 1 a.m. on a Saturday when the call came. A friend, a University of Virginia freshman who earlier said she had a date that evening with a handsome junior from her chemistry class, was in hysterics. Something bad had happened. Arriving at her side, three students —“Randall,” “Andy” and “Cindy” as they were identified in an explosive Rolling Stone account — told The Washington Post that they found their friend in tears. Jackie appeared traumatized, saying her date ended horrifically, with the older student parking his car at his fraternity, asking her to come inside, and then forcing...

    Teresa Sullivan, president of the University of Virginia, said all the right things when fraternity members at her school were accused of gang rape: she followed the PC playbook and nobody could fault her for missing her lines. She automatically assumed guilt, and was fast off the mark to let everyone know that the university opposed rape and stood with rape survivors (as if that was ever in doubt). She didn't wait for the facts, she dropped the presumption of innocence, and ran with the hounds. The wrongs described in Rolling Stone are appalling and have caused all of us...
  • No Formal Police Investigation Yet in (Alleged) UVA Rape Case

    Time ^ | December 3, 2014 | Eliza Gray
    While questions mount regarding the credibility of an account of an alleged gang rape at a University of Virginia fraternity, police have yet to open a formal investigation. University officials have said—as recently as Dec. 2—that they have been instructed by police not to discuss the specific incident because it is the subject of a police inquiry. But TIME has learned that so far, that inquiry has not crossed the threshold for the Charlottesville Police Department to treat it as a criminal investigation. Because the alleged incident took place at a fraternity house off campus, it falls under the jurisdiction...
  • Death Row "Cop-Killer" Has Conviction Overturned.

    The Texas Criminal Court of Appeals Wednesday overturned the conviction of a Houston man sentenced to death in the killing of a Houston Police Department officer. The court ordered a new trial for Alfred Dewayne Brown because of evidence withheld during his trial in 2005. Prosecutors said Brown and two other men were robbing a check-cashing store when they shot and killed the store clerk, Alfredia Jones, and then Officer Charles Clark, who responded to the scene. Brown claimed he was innocent and that he had an alibi that could prove it. He said he was at his girlfriend's house...
