There needs to be a worthy reason that is a violation of the law, and that is presented to the judge when applying for the warrant. It...

    Since becoming Alabama's first Democratic U.S. senator in 25 years, Doug Jones has been carefully balancing his progressive views with the wishes of his state's conservative voters. Now, facing re-election in 2020, he could break with his party and vote to acquit the president, reports NBC News. Jones won a special election two years ago by just two percentage points against Roy Moore, who was accused of sexual misconduct involving minors. This fall, along with Moore, he will face popular Republicans Jeff Sessions and former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville. Sessions, the former Alabama senator and attorney general under...
  • ABC, CBS Stick to Family-Ordered Autopsy in Sacramento Police Shooting

    Over the weekend, in the aftermath of the decision not to charge two police officers who shot vandalism suspect Stephon Clark a year ago in Sacramento, ABC and CBS cited the family-ordered second autopsy claiming Clark was mostly shot in the back without mentioning the state autopsy which disagreed. But the autopsy performed by Sacramento county contradicted the findings of the second autopsy, concluding that half the shots hit Clark in the side as he moved toward police. At the time, even the left-wing Mother Jones suggested that the county autopsy had a better chance of being accurate because it...

    School officials in northern Colorado are asking parents to take care with their newly legal recreational marijuana, after fourth graders were caught dealing the drug on an elementary school campus. John Gates, director of safety for Weld County School District 6, said Wednesday that the students involved, three 10-year-old boys and a 10-year-old girl at Greeley’s Monfort Elementary School, faced tough discipline but not suspension or expulsion. He would not elaborate on their punishment. […] The marijuana appears to have been legally purchased by adults—grandparents in two families—and no charges were expected to be filed, Gates said. He said the...

    Authorities say a Texas father who beat to death a man who tried molesting his 5-year-old daughter will not be charged. Officials said the grand jury met Tuesday and declined to return an indictment against the father in the death of 47-year-old Jesus Mora Flores. The attack happened on the family's ranch between the farming towns of Shiner and Yoakum. Investigators said the 23-year-old father ran toward his daughter's screams, pulled Flores off his child and beat him with his hands. Authorities say forensic evidence and witness accounts corroborated the father's story that his daughter was being sexually molested. Earlier,...

    Once again we find that a violent incident at a mosque was committed by ........a Muslim. This is the pattern. But this latest incident is deeply troubling for more nefarious reasons. This wasn't merely a hoax hate crime committed by a Muslim to stoke the bogus Islamic supremacist narrative of "islamophobia," this was a young Muslim experimenting with a bomb -- practicing his craft at his local mosque. Got that? Maine: Muslim teen sets off chemical bomb near mosque -- nothing to see here JihadwatchIslamic leaders told police that the explosion was just a 13-year-old "experimenting."

    ELIZABETHTON — There will be no charges placed in the Feb. 6 death of Elizabethton police dog Yoris. Yoris was euthanized after receiving stab wounds and other injuries in an encounter with six boys. Three of the boys suffered dog bites. First Judicial District Attorney General Tony Clark announced his decision not to place charges on Friday, following his review of an extensive investigation of the incident between the dog and the six boys between the ages of 14-16. Before the attack, the boys were playing a sport called airsoft in a grassy field near Yoris’ kennel. They were carrying...

    POMONA - In a span of two days, Brett Nichols went from being accused of attempted murder to becoming the victim in the same incident. The 48-year-old Phillips Ranch resident was arrested Monday morning on suspicion of attempted murder. Police said he had shot a man and dumped the body in the hills near his home. But Nichols was released from jail Wednesday afternoon after police determined he was acting in self-defense when he shot David Rotela, a 22-year-old Rosemead resident who survived the ordeal, authorities said. "It was a dumb move for me to do that, to dump his...

    RALEIGH , N.C. - A Marine Corps general says two officers whose unit was accused of killing up to 19 Afghan civilians in 2007 will not face criminal charges. The Marines said Friday that Lt. General Samuel Helland made the decision not to bring charges after reviewing the findings of a special tribunal that heard more than three weeks of testimony in January. The tribunal investigated allegations that as many as 19 Afghan civilians died when a unit of Marines special operations troops opened fire after a car bomb targeted their convoy in March 2007. It was the first time...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Prosecutors said Monday they will not file criminal charges in the death of a 28-year-old woman who participated in a radio station's water-drinking contest. The district attorney's office said the behavior of staff at station KDND-FM did not rise to the level of criminal activity. "There were no observable indications or symptoms that Jennifer Strange was experiencing a serious medical emergency which would have required station employees to seek or administer medical aid to her," the district attorney's office said in a statement. Strange died Jan. 12 after taking part in an on-air contest to see which...

    CAMP PENDLETON ---- The Marine Corps on Thursday defended the treatment of seven Marines and a Navy corpsman being held in the base brig as investigators probe the alleged killing of an Iraqi civilian on April 26. The men from the Camp Pendleton's 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment's Kilo Company are being investigated by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service for the alleged kidnapping and slaying of 52-year-old Hashim Ibrahim Awad al-Zobaie. Family members of the servicemen have told the media that they are being held in solitary confinement. A base spokesman disputed that characterization Thursday, saying none of the eight...

    It was a striking -- some said chilling -- moment in the battle for Iraq, captured on videotape: a wounded, un-armed Iraqi, shot to death by a U.S. Marine. CBS News has learned that military investigators conclude there is not enough evidence to formally charge that Marine. As CBS News Correspondent Kimberly Dozier reports, it happened during the bloody fight for Fallujah last fall. The Marines were engaged in bitter house-to-house combat with dug-in enemy fighters. When Marines ran into a mosque seeking the source of insurgent fire, they found several Iraqis wrapped in blankets. One Marine thought he saw...
