    UW Director of Community Relations Everett Mitchell, speaking at a University of Wisconsin Madison panel dealing with “Best Policing Practices,” argued that police should stop responding to shoplifting and thefts at Wal-Mart and Target to reduce what he refers to as “over policing” of the community. Yes, he really believes that enforcing the law regarding property crimes against retailers is “over-policing.” Mitchell, an employee of an institution that exists to enlighten the young and impressionable, said that communities should be able to decide for themselves what laws should be enforced, and that the ultimate goal of law enforcement is not...

    Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson has likely never heard of Edward L. Johnson, a New York City Police Sergeant who was killed by an alcoholic psycho on a cold January day more than 54 years ago. But those who passed through the NYCPD Academy during the 1960s remember the story of how Sergeant Johnson died because it was part of the Firearms Training curriculum. As the story goes, Sgt Johnson and his driver were called to a Bowery soup kitchen to back up a team of officers who were attempting to arrest a drunken, psychotic client who was using a...

They say Walter Palmer paid $50,000 to hunt and kill Cecil with a bow and arrow. The incident occurred around July 6, with a professional hunting outfit reportedly luring Cecil outside the boundaries of the protected reserve using a dead animal as bait. “Mr. Palmer shot Cecil with a bow and arrow but this shot didn't kill him,” Johnny Rodrigues, chairman of the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force, said in a statement. “They tracked him down and found him...

Speaking in New York on Friday before members of the Council on Foreign Relations think tank, Kerry declared there are "no alternatives" to the nuclear agreement the United States and five other world powers struck with Iran. A clear focus in Kerry's message on Friday was his past and continuing support for Israel, even recalling his 100% voting record for Israel during his time as senator. With the deal, Kerry...

The car was later found abandoned nearby. There is no suggestion of terrorism as a motive, according to the BBC's Paris correspondent Hugh Schofield. He says the car first hit a parked vehicle in the Place de la Concorde.

Social Justice Warriors can see something offensive in a grain of sand and demand, and receive an apology. Welcome to Stevenson College. The letter you are about to read is real even though it sounds like it comes from the Twilight Zone.

The movements escalate a standoff in the waters off Yemen, even as the U.S. and other world powers are trying to hammer out a diplomatic deal with Iran on its nuclear program. Already, the U.S. and...

    During Tuesday’s Hugh Hewitt show, former Vice President Dick Cheney voiced his opinion on President Barack Obama saying, “his actions are constituted in my mind those of the worst president we’ve ever had."

Or does he have a far-reaching vision that only he entertains of a realigned Middle East that somehow - it all works out in the end?" "I don’t know, Hugh,” Cheney replied. “I vacillate between the various theories I’ve heard, but you...

At the same time Abedin worked for the State Dept, she also worked for a company called Teneo.

The Senate is trying to find out if Teneo’s clients received government grants and if they did, was Abedin and or Hillary involved? Abedin also had a private email account that...
