    A video on Facebook of a bloody-faced white male – the purported target of an attack by a black mob in Fountain Square in Cincinnati – is making the media waves, and what’s even more shocking than the condition of the victim is the background laughter. The man was beaten into unconsciousness after a hip-hop concert on the Fourth of July. The video shows a crowd of mostly black people gathering around the white man as he lay unconscious on the sidewalk. People in the background scream and laugh at his bloody face. Two officers were injured during the attack,...

    Eight men from Illinois were arrested after police say a robbery at a Louis Vuitton store in Edina turned into a chase across the Twin Cities metro.

No weapons were involved, police say. Police say the suspects traveled on France Avenue to Interstate 494 to Highway 52 to Interstate 94, ending up in Woodbury. The suspect vehicle also hit another vehicle during the chase, but no...

    Congressional Republicans are using the power of the purse to do battle against a series of controversial labor regulations from the Obama administration. They say the National Labor Relations Board (NRLB) gave a gift to labor unions by issuing what they call an “ambush election” rule that speeds up the process for organizing in the workplace. Republican lawmakers are also incensed by a joint-employer policy that holds companies responsible for the labor violations of their business partners, and by a “micro-union” policy that paves the way for multiple labor unions to organize in a single workplace. Now tasked with crafting...

    By charging six police officers in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray, State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby restored order to Baltimore "before the entire city became an armed camp or was burned to the ground," her office argues in a new court filing. Attorneys for the officers say Mosby's public announcement of the charges tainted the pool of potential jurors for their trial. They have asked a judge to throw the charges out. But Michael Schatzow, Mosby's top deputy, said her announcement from the steps of Baltimore's War Memorial was appropriate in a city still reeling from a night...

The DEA launches billboards to find those who wreaked havoc on Baltimore pharmacies during the Freddie Gray riots. The billboards are along I-83 and I-95, including one near Hanover Street.

One pharmacy after the other—bizarre surveillance video from April 27 shows looters grabbing every drug they can get their hands on.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | June 16, 2015 | By SCOTT CALVERT
    BALTIMORE—Prosecutors in the Freddie Gray case have asked the judge to take the unusual step of ordering all evidence to be made confidential before the trial of six police officers charged in his death. The request seeks to prevent defense lawyers from making public any discovery material they receive in the run-up to the trial. Discovery material, which legally must be turned over to the defense, includes evidence, witness lists and other information. Prosecutors said they want to avoid what they called unfair pretrial publicity, which they largely blamed on the defense.

McKinney Police Chief Greg Conley called Cpl.

For example, in an op-ed for the Huffington Post titled “Raise Los Angeles’ Minimum Wage and Enforce It1,” Rusty Hicks, a labor leader in L.A. who represents over 300 unions, wrote: It’s no secret that we believe the minimum wage must be raised in order to lift working families out of poverty.

McDonald’s release came nine months after he was arrested in a separate domestic violence case and just two months after the Bears signed him to an incentive-laden free-agent contract. McDonald was not charged in the first case, and the San Francisco 49ers, his team last season, did not penalize him. But in December, three months later,...

    Education advocates on Monday called on Gov. Larry Hogan and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to increase funding for the city's schools, arguing the recent rioting in Baltimore shows the money is desperately needed. Without the funds, city schools will be forced to cut teachers, critical programs and student services, the advocates said. "Baltimore is not getting sufficient education funding to provide for all of our children's needs," said Bebe Verdery, education reform director at the ACLU of Maryland. The coalition includes the city's parent-teacher association and the city's charter schools organization, among other groups.

The motion was filed Monday by attorneys for Officer Edward Nero in Baltimore District Court.

All the teens were black, according to witnesses, and all but one of the people attacked were white. Still, it’s unclear if the attacks were racially motivated or sparked by the unrest in Baltimore, which followed the recent shooting death of Walter Scott, a black man, by a white North Charleston police officer.

    Over the past 24 hours, the Internet has exploded with commentary and armchair analysis on the riots in Baltimore. The civil unrest started just hours after the funeral of Freddie Gray, a citizen whose spinal cord was injured “mysteriously” while in the back of a police van. Gray, an African American, died on April 19. At a press conference on Friday, BPD Commissioner Anthony Batts admitted at least one glaring failure of his department: that Gray did not get the medical care he ought to have received while in police custody. Batts, a self-described reformist, forcefully asserted that he’s doing...

Now liberals are crying foul. The Baltimore Sun has editorialized, "Having city leaders apply it to the high school students and others who rioted throughout Baltimore tells the offenders that they weren't just wrong in what they did, but that they're also worthless because of it -- something too many people already believe." Baltimore's mayor, after initially using the term, apologized on Twitter: "That night we saw misguided young people who need...

    As Baltimore burns, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is turning the flip-flop into a high art form, to the point where she is now apologizing to the rioters for calling them “thugs.” She stated early Monday that police were instructed to allow “those who wished to destroy space to do that.” By Monday evening, facing heavy criticism from residents and business owners, she walked back from those comments. As the city was in flames Monday night, Rawlings-Blake spoke freely on CNN about “thugs” and “criminals” who were destroying what so many had worked so hard to build, even as Marxist professor Marc...
  • Unruly Teens' Local Lesson

    A pack of unruly teenagers who went on a rampage in downtown Charleston early Sunday morning, attacking and injuring some people, illuminated a problem: Department spokesman Charles Francis said officers were dispatched to 11 calls about disturbances on the peninsula from around midnight to 2 a.m. Sunday. He said they didn’t take some reports until two days later because they needed to respond to other calls. One man who would not give his name for fear the group might retaliate, said he was struck twice in the face. But when a policeman responded to the call, after asking if the...

    Hours after residents of Baltimore, Maryland, set the city aflame, President Barack Obama took to the Rose Garden to explain in professorial style just why America, under his administration, keeps watching young black men loot buildings and attack police officers. "We have seen too many instances of what appears to be police officers interacting with individuals -- primarily African-American, often poor -- in ways that have raised troubling questions. And it comes up, it seems like, once a week now, or once every couple weeks," Obama said, proclaiming that police brutality against blacks amounted to a "slow-rolling crisis." He added,...

    Where are the black fathers in Baltimore? They don‘t exist. I saw black mothers in the streets. I saw black male teens. But no black fathers trying to keep their kids off the streets and away from violence. Where is Barack Obama? Our nation’s first black president has been silent as blacks tear apart a major America city. He’s quick to weigh in and assign blame every time one black kid gets shot by a white cop. But not a word on the day thousands of blacks rampage and terrorize a city? Not a word ever about black-on-black crime? As...

    An 86-year-old nun was reportedly gang-raped before being murdered in her bedroom at a South African missionary. Gertrud Tiefenbacher's hands had been tied with a typewriter cord and a towel placed over a face, say local police. Her body was found by other nuns at the Sacred Heart Missionary in Ixopo, a small town 85 miles south-west of Durban. Police in KwaZulu-Natal are waiting for the results of forensic tests to confirm that Sister Gertrud was sexually assaulted. They say she was suffocated but they are unsure how many men attacked her. A small sum of money - thought to...

    It Was the lie of a child, a way of avoiding getting in trouble for coming home late. But it had terrible consequences - it stirred an angry mob, and it ultimately left a 51-year-old man fighting for his life with horrific head injuries. It led to the arrest of two women: the boy's mother, Aleathea Gillard and her neighbor, Sharina Joachim, who both have been charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and related offenses, police said. It started Tuesday afternoon, when Gillard confronted her 10-year-old son, police sources said. She wanted to know where he had been. He said...
