  • REGNERY: Why Are Liberals Anxious to Free Violent Criminals From Prison?

    Breitbart ^ | 16 May 2016 | Alfred S. Regnery
    Backers of the criminal justice reform bill pending in Congress are intent on reducing the population of the federal prisons. Their premise? Prisons are overflowing with minor drug offenders who have no reason to be incarcerated – “mass incarceration” is the term they like to use. As many have pointed out, that premise is a lie. Less than one percent of the federal prison population is there for drug possession, and most of those pled down from a more serious offense. But the left is intent on releasing prisoners anyway – mostly before their sentences run. Those to be let...
  • All the Fun Things Anders Breivik Can Do In His “Inhuman” Prison

    Mass murderer of children gets a computer, a Playstation, and his own kitchen—but that’s not enough for the Norway court that called his prison conditions “degrading.” A Norway court just ruled that the prison where mass-murderer Anders Breivik is being held violated his human rights—but the perks he enjoys at the Scandinavian lock-up are downright plush. On Wednesday, an Oslo district court awarded Breivik—who killed 77 people in a 2011 shooting spree, including 69 children at the Utoya summer camp—with 331,000 kroner (roughly $40,600) and a promise for improved living conditions. Ruling from a makeshift courtroom in the prison gym,...

    Oslo, Norway (CNN) — Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik has won part of his lawsuit against the state over his solitary confinement in a high-security prison, a court announced Wednesday. The Oslo district court found the 37-year-old's treatment in prison violated Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights, prohibiting "inhuman or degrading treatment," and ruled that his conditions must be eased. The court also ordered the government to pay legal costs of 331,000 kroner ($40,600) for the right-wing extremist, who killed 77 people in a shooting rampage and bombing attack in 2011.

Constructed under the authority of an agency that was newly formed via an executive order by President Obama the Department of Understanding Millennials Better (DUMB) plans to open the 10,000 facility up to its first inhabitants in the coming weeks and already has a waiting list that is ten times that capacity.

However, the judge said he'd give the defense two weeks to make an argument against the order. "Nothing is set in stone, so I might reconsider," the judge said in a court hearing in the case in Tarrant County, Texas.

The pair were placed together at Kempsey prison’s maximum security section, on the state’s Mid North Coast on Thursday morning, just a few hours before the unprovoked attack. It is believed the 18-year-old attacker choked the 40-year-old and carved ‘e4e’ into the front and back of the victim's head with a sharp object during the attack, to signify the group’s ‘eye for an eye’ torture...

Spokesman Solomon Graves identified the inmate as Christopher Wilson of Saltillo. Wilson had been at the prison since 2003 after receiving a life sentence without parole for pleading guilty to two counts of capital murder, records show. Wilson entered the plea to avoid the death penalty in the December 2002 beating deaths of a woman and her 8-month-old son, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported Sept. 3, 2003.

That decision was noted in a list of orders posted Monday on the court’s website.Blagojevich, 59, reported to a federal prison in Colorado four years ago to begin serving a 14­-year sentence. He was convicted of 18 counts over two trials. Among other things, he was accused of attempting to trade his power to appoint someone to a U.S. Senate seat — the one recently vacated by President Barack Obama — in exchange for personal benefits.

The short clip at the Yanggakdo International Hotel in Pyongyang shows an unidentifiable figure removing a sign from a wall before placing it on the floor. The banner in the hotel apparently says: "Let's arm ourselves strongly with Kim Jong Il patriotism," referring to the isolated state's leader who died in 2011.

    SANTA ANA -- Three people died and two others, including a police officer, were wounded in a rash of shootings across the city this week, underscoring what the police chief on Friday called a surge in brazen gang-related crimes. Santa Ana police Chief Carlos Rojas said it was the worst week in a year already rocked by the 'busiest' January for his department since 2011. "We're seeing more gang activity now, and I think a lot of that has to do with gang members being released into the community and more of a soft-on-crime approach," Rojas said.

That doesn’t mean she’s guaranteed to be charged or even convicted, since you still have to allow for the corruption and politicization of the justice system, unfortunately. But no serious person can argue she is not guilty of a felony after the e-mail the State Department released (with great reluctance, I’m sure) late last night. In it, she is talking with her then-deputy chief of staff Jake Sullivan, who is supposed to be getting her...

    The most poisonous claim in the dominant narrative is that our criminal justice system is a product and a source of racial inequity. The drug war in particular is said to be infected by racial bias. “Mass incarceration” is allegedly destroying black communities by taking fathers away from their families and imposing crippling criminal records on released convicts. Finally, prison is condemned as a huge waste of resources. Nothing in this dominant narrative is true. Prison remains a lifetime achievement award for persistence in criminal offending.

We don’t have all of those answers yet, but the resulting uproar spurred somebody to action and the ban on pork in prison has apparently been ended… at least in part. (Washington Post) After a...

The Act, according to the FBI agent, requires one who discovers the negligence to inform superiors. In the case of the alleged mishandling of classified documents and emails, Clinton would have needed to inform her only superior, the president, and he stated last week that he was not informed. According to the Daily Mail, “Obama said flatly during a ‘60 Minutes‘ interview on Sunday that ‘No,’ he did...

    Hard on the heels of his number-one best-selling book Between the World and Me, Ta-Nehisi Coates has now published a mega treatise in The Atlantic misleadingly titled “The Black Family in the Age of Mass Incarceration.” I say “misleading” because aside from a brief summary of the 1965 Moynihan Report and a few nods to the effects of incarceration on children and the costs of visiting relatives upstate, you won’t find much to chew on about the black family — or any families, for that matter. It’s hard to know whether Coates is being evasive or is just indifferent to...

    Hillary Clinton's email crisis is getting worse by the day. Yesterday, a second review of her email account proved once again that the former Secretary of State did in fact store top secret, classified information on her private server. This is against the law. An FBI "A-team," with the prosecutor who took down General David Petraeus leading the way, is investigating her mishandling of classified information. In a desperate attempt to save her campaign and herself from an indictment, Clinton wrote a note on Facebook about the situation late Tuesday night (bolding is mine). I wanted you to hear this...

    Something changed in America in the summer of 2014. A criminal, as low a lowlife as a man can be, knocked down a store proprietor and robbed his shop for drug supplies, sauntered down the middle of the street, attacked a policeman, and died in the struggle… exactly as it often goes, when a violent thug attacks a policeman (that’s one of the main reasons that, traditionally, criminals don’t attack policemen!). … And instead of America uniting in sudden recognition of the dangerous job of the modern big city policemen, America was divided, as an incomprehensible movement developed around the...

    Delusional, morally bankrupt, self-obsessed Hillary Clinton—a metaphorical modern day power-obsessed Lady Macbeth Delusional, morally bankrupt, self-obsessed Hillary Clinton—a metaphorical modern day power-obsessed Lady Macbeth (with the same self-destructive [political] behavior) is the poster child of the dictionary definition of treason: a violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or to one’s state and the betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery. (Indeed, staffers should have known something was amiss when the Clinton’s movers snatched everything not nailed down when the Clintons left the White House—the people’s house—the first time.) Yes, people of Hillary’s ilk live by a single...

    Michael Dodds, a former top-level administrator who oversaw several Columbus City Schools buildings, will report to jail today to start serving a 14 day sentence for his role in manipulating student data to make the district look better. Dodds pleaded no contest in June and was convicted on three felony charges: attempted tampering with government records and two counts of unauthorized use of property. Today, Franklin County Common Pleas Judge Kimberly Cocroft sentenced Dodds to a jail term of one day less than that received by Stephen B. Tankovich, the former district administrator who masterminded the data purging, received for...
  • Pentagon Silent on Whether Top-Secret Data was Compromised in Clinton Emails

    The Pentagon on Tuesday sidestepped questions about whether top-secret intelligence, including secrets derived from reconnaissance satellites and aircraft, was compromised after being placed on unsecure emails found on Hillary Clinton’s private server. Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook, in an inaugural briefing for reporters, would not answer questions about the secret intelligence found by an inspector general in a sampling of emails once stored on Clinton’s unsecured server. The email system was used by the former secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.
