  • UK Authorities Not Prosecuting Islamic State Returnees to Avoid Creating a ‘Lost Generation’

    A senior government adviser has told the BBC that the authorities are not prosecuting many Islamic State volunteers, believing they should be reintegrated rather than punished. Max Hill QC, who acts as the government’s Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation, told Radio 4 that “we do have a significant number [of Islamic State volunteers] already back in this country who have previously gone to Iraq and Syria” — currently estimated at something over 400. “That means that the authorities have looked at them, and looked at them hard, and decided that they do not justify prosecution, and really we should be...
  • White female cop takes stand on anti-American NFL ‘ingrates.’ (Is forced to apologize)

    Full original title--White female cop takes stand on anti-American NFL ‘ingrates.’ It nets her punishment nobody saw coming Last month, Michigan State Police director Colonel Kriste Kibbey Etue shared a Facebook post displaying the sentiments of literally the majority of America, but one that has gotten her into hot water with liberals in the peanut gallery. The September 24 post, which has since been removed, decries NFL players ‘taking-a-knee’ during the national anthem as “millionaire ingrates who hate America.” Etue was forced to “apologize” for the post three days later. “It was a mistake to share this message on Facebook...

  • Police Violence against Black Men Is Rare

    National Review ^ | September 18, 2017 | Phillippe Lemoine
    In reality, a randomly selected black man is overwhelmingly unlikely to be victim of police violence — and though white men experience such violence even less often, the disparity is consistent with the racial gap in violent crime, suggesting that the role of racial bias is small. Last year, according to the Washington Post’s tally, just 16 unarmed black men, out of a population of more than 20 million, were killed by the police. The year before, the number was 36. These figures are likely close to the number of black men struck by lightning in a given year, considering...

    . . . Hospital staff told police that Jones and Yancey had been arguing while waiting for their 14-year-old son to get a procedure. Shortly after, Jones came out of the room and said Yancey had cut himself. Staff went into the room and found Yancey with lacerations to the upper body. Yancey was pronounced dead a short time later. Jones left the hospital before officers arrived on scene. . . .
  • British Police Arrest At Least 3,395 People For ‘Offensive’ Online Comments in One Year

    British police forces arrested at least nine people a day for “offensive” online comments last year. Figures obtained by The Times through the Freedom of Information Act reveal that 3,395 people across 29 forces were arrested last under section 127 of the Communications Act 2003, which makes it illegal to intentionally “cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to another”, in 2016. The true figure is likely to be significantly higher, as thirteen police forces refused to provide the requested information and two did not provide usable data. Around half of the investigations were abandoned before being brought to prosecution, which...

    Time to call out a few, given that Reuters is making excuses (big shock). I'll start with the heroes. Among them was the unarmed hotel security guy who attempted to interdict the shooter but could not get through the door because the shooter had driven screws into the frame. He took a round to the leg when the shooter blindly emptied a mag through the door of the suite but he'll be ok. Next up is the ex-service member who stole a truck and used it to transport injured people out of the kill zone. If they prosecute that guy,...

    HR 3999 ^ | ctdonath2
    I see this having a huge unintended consequence: the creation of "factory high-rate semi-autos", rifles that _come_ with bump stocks, gatling cranks, other creative mechanical solutions capable of out-of-box pushing the physical limits of how fast a semi-auto can be "fired". The buyer can then either remove the annoying high-rate device and use it normally, or just enjoy the popularization of a new exciting category of firearm. They haven't even had the first vote on it, and already we're cooking up workarounds and marketing methods.

    Class, not race, is the dominant struggle of our political age, says Rep. Paul Mitchell, who represents Michigan’s 10th congressional district covering parts of Macomb County and the rest of Michigan’s thumb. We recently sat down with Mitchell, a Republican, to talk about race and class, attacks on police officers and the Black Lives Matter protests, among other topics. After a career owning and running a nonprofit health school, Mitchell turned his attention to politics. Mitchell said that the left focuses on racial struggles, but the real struggle is between “the haves and the have nots.” “And I tell you...

    California’s sheriffs are calling on the GOP-controlled Congress to intervene and pass a federal law to change the state’s sanctuary state status, warning the law that ties their hands too tightly will only increase the chances of another high-profile tragedy.The sanctuary state law, which Gov. Jerry Brown (D.) signed Thursday but doesn't go into effect until January, is the most far-reaching of its kind in the country and places sharp limits on how local law enforcement agencies can communicate with federal immigration authorities.It would also make it a crime to enforce federal immigration laws on the premises of all schools,...

    WASHINGTON — Alexandria’s top prosecutor says police were legally justified in using deadly force against the man who opened fire on a congressional baseball practice in June, injuring House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, of Louisiana, and four other people. In a 41-page report released Friday, the commonwealth’s attorney for Alexandria, Bryan Porter, said police were justified in fatally shooting 66-year-old James T. Hogkinson who shot at Republican lawmakers practicing at a baseball field in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria for an upcoming charity baseball game. This is a developing story.
