One of the white men was talking to the men when he was knocked unconscious. That's when the second man was attacked by at least six black youths.

Police were searching for a three-year-old boy named Kelby who had been reported missing - he was eventually found asleep in his own basement. Police said the officer who was searching in Kendall's yard felt the dog was...

    ICE Agent Crane to Obama: "Mr. President, you've overstepped your boundaries. It's your job to enforce the law, it's Congress' job to enact the law."- Last week, ICE union chief Chris Crane won a stunning initial court victory in his lawsuit against the Obama Administration. As we reported, Federal Judge Federal Judge Reed O’Connor told the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that they had no power to refuse to deport illegal aliens, and that he was likely to strike down Obama’s virtual “DACA” amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. The ruling stunned Washington, and Crane’s lawsuit could derail Obama’s four-year...

    SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - Organizers of Tuesday's "Celebration of Marriage" at Utah's Capitol Hill got a much larger crowd than they probably expected. The evening was intended to celebrate traditional family. While that did happen, people who attended were surrounded by hundreds gay rights activists. Tuesday's celebration of traditional family marriage had everything: the Osmonds, the Governor, and hundreds of gay rights party crashers. Needless to say it was not what traditional family supporters expected. "Do you think it makes this thing tense?" asked Reporter Brian Carlson. "In some ways yes, in some ways no," said Claus...

Burbank asked members of the Occupy Salt Lake protest group to start packing immediately and to be out of the park by sunset Saturday. The ban on camping overnight also includes the Gallivan Center, where a group was recently...

    Shouts break the evening silence. “Police! Search warrant!” Officers burst through the door. A man appears across the room. Metal glints from his clasped hands. Shots echo from a police-issue Glock 22. Todd Blair slumps to the floor. “Five seconds,” said Blair’s mother, Arlean. “In five seconds, he was dead.” Officers entered Blair’s home Sept. 16 during a drug raid when he stepped into the hall, wielding a golf club, police video shows. Ogden police Sgt. Troy Burnett shot Blair, 45, in the head and chest. The shooting was deemed legally justified.

Affiliated Media Inc., the holding company for the MediaNews Group family of newspapers that includes The Denver Post, said Friday that it plans to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The company said it would file a "prepackaged" plan already approved by lenders, which should allow it to emerge from bankruptcy more quickly. Under the plan, company debt would fall from about $930 million to $165 million. Senior lenders would swap debt for stock. Earlier this week, Morris Publishing Group, owner of 13 daily newspapers including the...

    There may be retribution for police not enforcing Utah's new immigration law. Senate Bill 81 makes it more difficult for illegal immigrants to get a job and to utilize some government services. But the responsibility of enforcement falls on police. Detective Dennis McGowan says Salt Lake police won't be enforcing it as it is written because it implies a form of racial profiling. Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab, was the House sponsor of the bill. He says he's angry, it's appalling and he will look at ways to make the Salt Lake City Police Department uphold the law. "If they don't...

    The FBI and US Postal Service inspectors are on their way to investigate the suspicious envelope found at Temple Square containing an unknown white powder. The letter was mailed to the temple and was opened inside an office in the entrance area to the Salt Lake Temple. That is in an area open to the public. They have since placed the letter into a black plastic bag. Both Salt Lake City police and fire departments are on the scene and have closed off the area, including eastbound lanes of North Temple between State Street and Main Street. They did not...

They said Al Qaida was trying to reenter Baghdad and reverse its losses in 2007. "Al Qaida is trying to come back in," U.S. military commander Gen. David Petraeus said. "We can feel it and see it, and what we're trying to do is rip out any roots before they can get deeply into the ground." Read More Militants Assert...

    The Bosnian Muslim community in Salt Lake is celebrating the arrival of a new religious leader. Dozens from the Bosnian community came to worship at 427 E. 3300 South. Friday is their holy day. There are presently 150 members. The new Imam spoke to the members about one of the five pillars of Islam--prayer. Not very long ago, he said he could not have imagined leaving Bosnia to come to Utah. But when he heard about the desire and need for a religious leader, it touched his heart. When asked why Bosnians worship separately from the Shia and Sunni Muslims,...

    His face bathed in sunlight, Stacy Hansen was all smiles Tuesday as he sat in a wheelchair on his newly paved driveway. After spending nearly two months in University Hospital recovering from a gunshot wound to his lower back that left him paralyzed from the waist down, the 53-year-old was ecstatic to be home. "This is just overwhelming," said Hansen, who was among nine victims during a Feb. 12 shooting rampage at Trolley Square mall. Neighbors, firefighters, Salt Lake City police officers - including Chief Chris Burbank - and Ogden Officer Ken Hammond, who helped stop 18-year-old shooter Sulejman Talovic,...

    Six weeks before his deadly rampage at Trolley Square mall, Sulejman Talovic proudly showed three young relatives the 12-gauge shotgun, .38-caliber revolver and black backpack of ammunition he had collected. None of the three teenagers, skeptical of Talovic's claim that he was "hustling" for a local gang, thought to alert Talovic's parents or police. Talovic had invited the teens, all distant cousins, to his family's west Salt Lake City home on Jan. 1, and the four watched MTV in the basement. .......

    San Francisco, CA - - Facts have emerged in this case which prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the Bosnian Muslim immigrant's rampage at a Utah shopping mall, killing five people is a textbook study of a jihadist attack. Just a day before the murders Talovic told his 17 year old Bosnian girlfriend Monika, with whom he had discussed marriage plans that he was involved in a dark plot. "Something is going to happen tomorrow that you'll never be able to forgive me about" Talovic's girlfriend told the Salt Lake Times adding that "It was supposed be the happiest...

    Choking on her blood on the floor of Cabin Fever, Carolyn Tuft inched toward Kirsten, her mortally wounded daughter, to tell her that she loved her. Their faces close, she took her hand.     Mother and daughter had been in the store for just a few minutes, not even at the Valentine's Day cards yet, when Tuft heard a "pop." They were laughing and browsing, and at first Tuft paid little attention. As the danger became apparent, she couldn't know if it was safer where they were or out in the hall. She walked over to the window to see...

    Salt Lake Tribune Compares Holocaust Survivor to Killer (excerpt) Posted by Julia under Republican Riot I had to do a double take when I read these opening paragraphs in Saturday’s Salt Lake Tribune: Holocaust survivor mesmerizes students He was just a little older than his audience when the Nazis starved him and showed him such unspeakable brutality. He’s still talking about it now. The reaction at Fort Herriman Middle School last week was to stand and cheer his courage. Days after a teenager went on a shooting rampage in Salt Lake City, students at Jordan School District middle schools were...
