    Durham Miners Gala, 134th to be held was held this weekend, the first I have missed in many years. And how I now wish I had been there because this is beyond ridiculous, it is now against the law to fly the Union flags at it because it may cause trouble according the “Durham police Farce”???? The Miners Gala is and has always been a celebration of the history of the area both of the mines and the people of Country Durham and surrounding areas, which includes tens of thousands of men that fought under the Union flag with the...

Officers armed with batons traded punches with the protesters, local media reports said. Three officers sustained minor injuries and there were four arrests. A string of police killings of black men, some unarmed, has caused outrage and led to protests in cities across the US. Police said the demonstrators in Chicago on Saturday were dispersed...

    A remarkable article in USA Today confirms what common sense and intelligent observation have told us for years.  Immediately following the Baltimore race riots that ensued after Freddie Gray was found dead in the back of a police van, Baltimore cops began to "stop noticing crime."  They still responded swiftly to calls for help.  But the police force turned a blind eye to crimes being committed right in front of them. The analysis by USA Today examined millions of Baltimore police records and determined that shocking rise in crime occurred that was directly related to a fall in "on view" reports of crime...

    Miami-Dade police is on the hook for legal bills after cops illegally seized a cache of guns — and nearly $20,000 in stripper cash. The department has agreed to pay more than $3,000 to defense lawyers hired by Ras Cates, 33, and his wife, Lizmixell Batista, a 20-year-old stripper at Cheetah Gentleman's Club in Hallandale Beach. Presumably, the legal bills won't be paid in singles. On May 25, an officer pulled over Cates and Batista, his passenger, when their car cut off a patrol car in Miami's West Little River neighborhood. From the car, patrol officers seized six guns,...

    The Richland County Sheriff's Department and Columbia Police Department say a combined 60-day initiative aimed at reducing gun violence and seizing weapons was a success. “This is not something we’ve created to make people feel good," Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott said, calling gun violence the most prominent problem in the Midlands. "This is something we want to work." As he spoke, Lott stood beside several photos of people killed by gun violence. "They're real people," Lott said. "There's real pain, and families are hurting. ... It's just not a number." Since the initiative began on April 24, the Richland...
  • Did Philly police just bike-doze Mayor Kenney's relationship with progressives?

    Mayor Kenney faced a backlash from progressives after police officers on Thursday bike-dozed a modest encampment of protesters trying to shut down access to a local office for the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The mayor, who has held plenty of high-profile news conferences in City Hall to decry President Trump’s zero tolerance on immigration, was nowhere to be found as police officers used bikes to push down beach umbrellas and other encampment equipment. Kenney spokeswoman Deana Gamble said the mayor shared activists’ frustration with ICE. However, she said, protesters cannot obstruct access to the ICE building at Eighth and...

Stay calm!” a protester shouted as police used bicycles to push through the encampment and knock down the protesters’ tents and canopies, which had been set up in the area since Monday evening as part of a national movement calling for the abolition of ICE. Local demonstrators also have called for the closure of the federal detention center in Berks County and an end to local collaboration with federal immigration officials.The...

    A man with a long-standing beef against the Annapolis, Maryland, newspaper Capital Gazette entered the paper's headquarters with a shotgun and murdered five staffers. It represents the deadliest attack on U.S. reporters in modern history. Before learning about the suspect's mental issues and his long-standing feud with the newspaper, some in the media blamed President Donald Trump. After all, critics said, Trump routinely denounces "fake news" as an existential threat to our republic. Connect the dots, they said. Blame Trump! CNN aired a montage of Trump's attacks on the media. Rob Cox, a Reuters editor, tweeted: "This is what happens...

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - On any given day, deputies with the Broward Sheriff’s Office can be found working a special security detail at the Festival Flea Market Mall in Pompano Beach. The service is paid for by Festival Flea Market Mall owner Daniel Shooster, who also happens to be a member of the Broward Sheriff's Advisory Council and one of Sheriff Scott Israel's top campaign donors. Shooster is responsible for at least $37,000 in contributions to Israel's campaign, political committee, and legal defense fund in the past few years. An Israel campaign ad even plays on a loop on the...

    The anxiety was etched across Marty Lewis' face as he emerged from the Waco Police Department. It was clear Lewis was uncomfortable being back in Waco. As he sat for a brief interview, one of the first things he said was that he wanted to get back on the road and out of town. Waco left him with bitterness, he said. It had to be something important to bring Lewis back to the city where the retired San Antonio police detective was arrested after a shootout between biker groups at a Twin Peaks restaurant in May 2015. The decorated former...

    Ann Mongoven knows her Highland Park neighborhood is gaining population at a steady clip. Despite that, she opposes any proposal to add more police officers in St. Paul. “That doesn’t make any sense to me,” said Mongoven, an active member of the St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Minneapolis, after a long pause and an incredulous look. “I live in Highland and we are going to be welcoming new people. … We can do that neighbor-to-neighbor. We don’t need the police to get to know our neighbors.” On Monday, 14 members of the faith-based social justice coalition Isaiah gathered...

An Indiana State Police news release about 129 arrests in a series of drug busts in northern Indiana includes a photo of what police describe as “Trump-shaped ecstasy pills.” They are orange and stamped with a face. On the back are the words “great again,” an apparent reference to Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.”(continued)

    It's a business that has existed for as long as there have been summer vacations and borrowed lawn mowers: A pint-size entrepreneur offers to endure the rage of a summer sun on a neighbor's behalf, pushing a lawn mower across high grass for a small fee. Last week, in Maple Heights, Ohio, that entrepreneur was Reggie Fields, a 12-year-old middle schooler who is the owner and mower-in-chief of Mr. Reggie's Lawn Service. His sister and two cousins also provided manual labor in their neighborhood outside Cleveland, working a rake and a broom to corral clippings. That's what they told Lucille...
