    It’s a warm summer evening and Devan Clapp is standing outside his two-story brick row house in northeast Baltimore’s Ramblewood neighborhood. The streets are quiet, with postage-stamp lawns; a transition area between the city and the suburbs of Baltimore County just a couple miles north. This neighborhood, like every other Baltimore neighborhood Clapp’s family has lived in the last hundred years, was predominantly white, before it wasn’t. He talks of how, in the 1980s, the skin color of his mother and father, godmother and brother, drove their white neighbors up and over to the “more-welcoming” side of the county line....

    WHY WE WROTE THIS France’s “yellow vest” protesters have been highly visible, but their motives have been cryptic, thanks in large part to their lack of leaders and structure. We wanted to find out what's driving them. MULHOUSE, FRANCE For Rosa Larocca, a middle-aged headmistress who can switch from a warm smile to a stern look in seconds, it’s all about politics. “The people want a different type of republic and they want [French President Emmanuel] Macron to go,” she says. “What we want are referendums.” For Shanoon Redovanc, a bespectacled retiree sporting a black woolen hat, it’s about living...

    Dozens rallied outside the New Apple Red Nail Salon Tuesday evening, increasing the calls for the shop to remain closed for good.

    Bad precedent was set throughout the whole of the Obama Administration, refusing to enforce law, the Deep State reposes on non-enforcement. But in jurisdictions prone to riot, such as Ferguson Missouri, there needs to be a new kind of law, using facial recognition: When a riot is being called, Police need to use facial recognition, using infrared or radar to overcome disguises. When a potential rioter is scanned by the Police, each individual needs to be cited, with a 24-hour curfew. "You have 1 hour to get off the street", the tickets will say, complete with a scan of the...

The instructor also recommended breaking one of the floating ribs to cause maximum pain in a victim. "It's hard to move after that -- to catch a breath,"...
