    Since policing is a problem, the police should be removed from communities altogether, according to Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza. Garza argued that the United States gives too much respect to police officers, explaining that when police do wrong, a few bad cops are blamed, rather than a “corroded and corrupt system.” “Quite frankly, many of our [Black Lives Matter] members are continuing to investigate what it would mean to have police-free

    Tuesday night (Sept. 20), 38-year-old Travon Williams lay dead on the pavement outside a small grocery store at the intersection of North Claiborne Avenue and Desire Street. Fatally shot, Williams had followed a grim pattern running through his family, a well-worn groove of untimely, violent deaths. According to those who knew him, Williams had spent the past few years of his life trying to build better relationships with his daughters -- and trying to free himself from a tragic legacy. At age 5, Williams lost his 24-year-old mother to gunfire at a Desire neighborhood barroom. Gretchen Williams of Desire was...

    The Chicago Police Department launched mandatory training designed to help officers de-escalate conflicts, including situations involving the use of force and mental health issues. The program, which Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson is scheduled to discuss Monday evening, is among several department reforms following the shooting death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. The black teenager was shot 16 times in 2014 by a white Chicago police officer. Graphic squad-car video of the shooting was released last year, prompting citywide protests, police leadership changes and a U.S. Department of Justice investigation.

Bailey Sr. said. The council discussed the possibility of changing the name to Patrick Henry but tabled the discussion for later. An advisory committee did not recommend name changes for all the streets in Alexandria named after Confederate soldiers but has now opened the door for neighbors...

Cops say he then attacked one officer, causing a laceration to his head or face, and police opened fire - at which point another cop was struck in the back, authorities said.

    The city of Alexandria, Va., is stonewalling an investigation into voter rolls in the city that could have illegally registered voters. The Public Interest Legal Foundation, an Indiana-based law firm that litigates to protect election integrity, filed a lawsuit in April against the city of Alexandria on behalf of the Virginia Voters Alliance, a group dedicated to improving election laws. The groups contended that voter rolls in Alexandria have for years contained more registrants than people of voting age in the city. In January, PILF sent a statutory notice letter to Anna J.

So we headed down to the main road to try to hail a cab, along with a number of other stragglers now wishing, like us, they’d kept Metro hours. Within minutes, several men had urinated in plain sight very near to us; one had clambered up on a little raised platform with some shrubbery on it just to do so. Nearby, a woman yelled in French “You’re no better than beasts!” but the beasts...

Some of them are so desperate, they're selling their bodies and committing crimes to go to jail to ensure regular meals, according to an Urban Institute study.

Another 4 million were in "marginally food secure" households, where the "threat of running out of food is real." All of the 10 communities surveyed in focus groups...

    As recently as last year, the Democratic Party’s leaders thought the idea of a $15 federal minimum wage was unrealistic and even pushed back against it. That ended in July when the official party platform, bowing to pressure from organized labor and Sen. Bernie Sanders and his supporters, adopted a call for a $15 federal minimum, more than double the current rate of $7.25 an hour. […] When Seattle increased its minimum to $15 in 2014, a boost of nearly $6 an hour, it also commissioned a study of the increase’s effect by the University of Washington. A report released...

People outside of Milwaukee may be a bit surprised that last week hundreds of black people burned down businesses, threw bricks at cops, attacked white people, and created an enormous amount of mayhem. All because police killed a member of that city’s black criminal elite after he pointed a stolen gun at them. The New York Times certainly was -- it even dug up a few locals to say so.

    Last year the good people at Whirlpool created the Whirlpool Care Counts Program and donated seventeen pairs of washers and dryers to school districts in St. Louis and in Fairfield, California. The schools then invited kids with attendance problems to bring in their laundry to be cleaned while they were in class. The results were astounding: over 90% of participating students increased their attendance that year, at-risk students attended almost two more weeks of school, and each student got approximately 50 loads of laundry done at school.

    On Wednesday’s CNN New Day, Chris Cuomo brought on CNN commentator, author and host of BET News Marc Lamont Hill and former Secret Service agent and current candidate for congress in Florida Dan Bongino, to discuss Trump polling poorly with African-Americans. While Bongino argued that democrat run cities have failed black communities, Lamont Hill claimed that poverty and Democrat machines are connected, but that “doesn’t mean” being a Democrat makes you poor. After Cuomo brought up a new ABC News/WSJ poll that predicted only one percent of blacks would vote for Trump, he asked Bongino why Trump was unable to...

    Today Hillary Clinton remains campaigning in Pennsylvania. Yesterday Vice President Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton campaigned in Scranton, a few hundred people showed up. Today, Hillary held a voter registration campaign event in a High School gym in West Philadelphia – the attendance/turnout was essentially the same. What’s going on? Where are all these Clinton supporters the national media keep polling and talking about? The answers are really quite simple. They’re in the same place they were during the 2016 Democrat primary race.

    The killer who crept up behind an imam and his friend near a Queens mosque and shot both men in the head may have been settling a score in a feud between Muslims and Hispanics, police sources said early Monday. And he may have left behind another victim who unwittingly held the clue that solved the crime, the sources said. The suspected killer was taken into custody Sunday night but had not been charged or identified, according to the sources. Police officials would not confirm whether a suspect was nabbed.

    Hey media, they're "riots" not "protests" Dear media outlets, All the violence we’ve been witnessing in Milwaukee for the last few days? Yeah, that’s not a “protest.” You keep calling it that, but the fact is you’re just plain wrong. These are “riots.” Ugly, violent, racist, riots. I know, I know. You get all uncomfortable when you’re forced to report things accurately. You hate to use a label that you think will get you called “racist” by the left. God forbid you’re not invited to the White House correspondent’s dinner.

    Walmart is asking customers to nominate their favorite teachers to win school supplies and a $490 gift card (approximately how much the average public school teacher spends out of pocket on classroom supplies). For whatever reason, the promotion to give free supplies and money to teachers has the Washington Teachers' Union up in arms. The Washington Post reports that Washington Teachers' Union President Elizabeth Davis called the promotion a "cynical coverup." Other union members called it "deceitful" and "bogus."
