    NEW YORK (AP) -- A rookie police officer who shot an unarmed man dead in a darkened public housing stairwell was convicted Thursday of manslaughter in a case closely watched by advocates for police accountability. The courtroom audience gasped and Officer Peter Liang, who had broken into tears as he testified about the 2014 shooting of Akai Gurley, buried his head in his hands as the verdict came after 17 hours of jury deliberations. The manslaughter charge carries up to 15 years in prison. Liang's sentencing is set for April 14.

    Stephen Curry put together one of his finest performances Wednesday night, scoring 51 points on 68% shooting while going 11-for-16 from 3-point range, as the Warriors beat the Wizards 134-121. Even more impressive is that Curry accomplished this feat relatively quickly — he played just 36 minutes and dumped in 25 points in the first quarter alone. The climax of his game-opening explosion came on a broken play off an inbounds that Curry turned into another dazzling highlight. After a Draymond Green layup, the Wizards inbounded the ball quickly to try to push the pace. As they got the ball...

His trip in October 2011 to Saudi Arabia occurred during the Hajj, a pilgrimage to Mecca required at least once of all dutiful followers of the faith. His 10-month stay in Egypt the next year overlapped with the beginnings of that country's uprising against then-President Mohammed Morsi

Philadelphia’s brand new mayor, Jim Kenney, was quick out of the gate to declare that this was a problem because of all the guns out on the streets. You’ll notice that he hasn’t had much more to say on that subject since it turned out that the gun in question had been stolen from a cop’s home and probably traded around among gang members like a baseball card.

The news outlet also reported that Edward Archer, 30, was not on any terrorist watch lists and was due to be sentenced Monday for an unrelated crime. Archer appears to have made a trip to Saudi Arabia in 2011 for Hajj, the sacred Muslim pilgrimage, and then to Egypt in 2012. Investigators are looking into whether those trips were related to Friday's shooting.

    There is a major difference between a spree murder and jihad. Especially when Muslims commit it at a Christmas party. Lumping spree murder and jihad together is a journalistic mistake, misleads the public, and assaults our precious Bill of Rights. The gun issues involved are different. The religious murders (not "terrorism") committed in San Bernardino and all over America at this point are all part of the global jihad being waged by Muslims against us.
