    Despite the hue and cry from some, the election of Donald Trump as President will have a positive effect on policing and citizen safety in America. And it will not, in my opinion, decrease Americans’ civil rights. I believe the No. 1 civil right is to be free from harm. Though broad historical trends remain positive, we’re in the midst of an increase in violent crime, and more Americans are now dying from drug overdoses than from automobile accidents. With smart and aggressive local policing — encouraged by policies set by Washington, and by an example set by federal law...

    Hundreds of British police officers have been accused of engaging in the sexual abuse of victims, according to a report by UK top police watchdog ordered by then-Home Secretary Theresa May earlier this year. The statement by lead researcher Mike Cunnigham branded the findings the “most serious form of corruption.” According to the study done by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC), during the 24 months to March 31, 2016, there were 436 allegations of abuse of authority for sexual gain “received, or received and finalised,” by police forces in England and Wales, including instances of multiple allegations against...

The Los Angeles Ethics Commission decided Tuesday that a former police sergeant broke city rules by leaking to reporters an audio recording from his controversial stop of an actress from “Django Unchained.” In a nod to what one commissioner described as the “extraordinary circumstances” of the case, however, the board opted in a 4-0 vote to fine now-retired Sgt. Jim Parker $500 — far less than the $10,000 maximum penalty he faced. Tuesday’s ruling caps an unusual investigation by the Ethics Commission and...

The next ring is much thinner, the brief period of the so-called spurless revolver, a gun with an internal hammer that for safety cannot be cocked. Finally, in the center, there is the classic revolver, such as the Smith & Wesson Model 10 or the Ruger Police Service Six, more commonly seen on "T.J. Hooker" reruns or film noir than on the streets of New York. The grips still echo the earliest revolvers, designed in the...

Mecklenburg County District Attorney Andrew Murray said he didn't reach the decision alone; a total of 15 prosecutors unanimously agreed that Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Officer Brentley Vinson was justified in shooting Scott on September 20 in an apartment complex parking lot.

This was something of a wildly unexpected data point.

    The death of Michael Brown in August 2014 caused millions of dollars in property damage locally, and precipitated the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement nationally. Further, it focused scrutiny on law enforcement by the press, the public, and the political elites. Following that fatal OIS in Ferguson, there has been a widespread perception — perpetuated by the mainstream national media — that white police officers are biased against black subjects in their use of lethal force. However, a new study authored by John Lott and Carlisle Moody of the Crime Prevention Research Center digs deep into the numbers...

    If you believe America’s police target black people for harsh treatment simply because of the color of their skin, then there is a good chance you have listened to Al Sharpton and his National Action Network and consider them credible observers of the country’s social scene. America’s newspapers and media routinely pass along Sharpton’s sentiments as though they represent reality. But the Tawana Brawley affair, whose upcoming 30-year anniversary is next year, suggests the sentiments social justice activists represent aren’t so much the real issues blacks face in America, but rather artificial narrative-making.
