    A 16-year-old girl was stabbed to death outside a Washington, DC-area McDonald’s in an apparent dispute about sweet and sour sauce over the weekend. Naima Liggon, of Waldorf, Maryland, was allegedly killed by another 16-year-old girl outside the fast food chain in a popular nightlife section of the city around 2 a.m., the Metropolitan Police said. The deadly knife attack stemmed from an argument over the nugget dipping sauce between the teens and a third girl, Detective Brendan Jasper testified in court Monday, according to the Washington Post.

    Concerns are growing in Washington, D.C. about some major grocery stores being able to keep their doors open due to shoplifting. During a news conference Friday, D.C. Councilman Trayon White said he spoke to the regional management of a popular Giant Food store on Alabama Avenue Southeast. “We had the opportunity to meet with some of the leadership of this Giant,” White said. “Some of the regional leadership at this Giant, what we heard was disheartening. We learned that this Giant has lost over $500,000 in product loss, which is about 20% of the sales. We know it's tough times...

    An 11-year-old was arrested Monday and charged with armed robbery and armed assault in connection with a crime spree that began on May 21. The initial May 21 crime was one in which the 11-year-old allegedly approached someone and demanded they “hand over their belongings.” When the individual refused to hand them over, the 11-year-old allegedly pulled a gun to force compliance, USA Today reported. FOX 5 noted the May 21 robbery occurred on Lamont Street and was allegedly followed by “an assault with a dangerous weapon on Irving Street on May 24, and a robbery on Luray Place on...

    Biased juries and politics, rather than an ‘objective view of the law and the facts,’ may dictate whether a defendant is convicted or acquitted.Special Counsel John Durham breached neither ethics nor etiquette when he highlighted the difficulty of obtaining a conviction in a politically charged case when the jury holds opposing partisan views. He merely stated the reality on the ground in D.C.-area federal courts. And by his own actions prosecuting the J6 defendants solely in the nation’s capital, Attorney General Merrick Garland has confirmed that assessment by proving the corollary: Criminal cases against individuals viewed by the local populace...

    When your whole city’s a toilet, why not embrace it? The D.C. Council is expected to take the first of two votes Tuesday on a massive rewrite of its criminal code. If passed, the bill would eliminate most mandatory minimum sentences, allow for jury trials in almost all misdemeanor cases and reduce the maximum penalties for offenses such as burglaries, carjackings and robberies. Assume that there’ll be a lot more burglaries, carjackings and robberies. Not to mention public urination. Mayor Muriel Bowser and Police Chief Robert Contee III are pushing back hard on parts of the plan they don’t agree...

    Shocking video captures a group of teens viciously assaulting a woman and throwing her off a Washington, DC, bus – because she asked them to stop using “foul language.” Kyla Thurston, a passenger on the DC Metrobus, told the rowdy teens to stop cursing Monday after a woman and a young child boarded, Fox 5 DC reported. “At that point, the kids became unruly. They started being disrespectful, like saying things to me,” Thurston, 42, told the news outlet. “Then next thing you know, there were objects being thrown at me, and I was just like, ‘Thank You, Lord,’ because...

    Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser had an important announcement to make yesterday regarding the impending start of the new school year. Despite the fact that most parts of the country are easing off on various pandemic restrictions that were in place over the past two and a half years, the District of Columbia will require all students age 12 and over to show proof of vaccination in order to attend classes. But the rules being imposed contain several bizarre caveats, along with a glaring omission in whatever planning went into this decision. The omission comes in the form of a...

    The District of Columbia does not appear to have a contingency plan for unvaccinated students, who are banned from attending schools in person this fall after the first twenty days, according to comments made by Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser Thursday. During a press conference, Bowser, a Democrat, admitted there are no alternative options, including virtual learning, for students who cannot attend school due to the District’s vaccine mandate, meaning unvaccinated children will effectively be left without an education. Over 40% of blacks ages 12-17 are not vaccinated, according to city data. The Daily Signal asked Bowser what the plan...

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) quietly killed a $100 million project to build a National China Garden in Washington, D.C. just two miles from the U.S. Capitol as the intelligence community becomes increasingly concerned that Chinese investments in the U.S. are being is to increase their spying capabilities. In 2017, local Washington officials and Chinese leaders celebrated a deal to build an ornate Chinese garden in the National Arboretum. The plan was to transform a 12-acre field in the arboretum with temples and pavilions and native Chinese shrubbery. It was believed that Chinese officials were eager to foot the...

    I was struck with a memory of the first "Hunger Games" movie. This memory came while I was wondering about how foolish and corrupt Washington D.C. and the media seem to me. These are actually my people- I'm a multi-degree former Democrat. I was thinking about how to tell folks in the academic and urban bubble what they look like to folks who live and work where I live and work. Maybe I could help them understand why much of the country is so disgusted by our government and much of media which purports to cover our government. The movie...
  • Cockroach Reproduction Has Taken a Strange Turn

    05/27/2022 8:19:59 PM PDT · by algore · 61 replies
    When a male cockroach wants to mate with a female cockroach very much, he will scoot his butt toward her, open his wings and offer her a homemade meal — sugars and fats squished out of his tergal gland. As the lovely lady nibbles, the male locks onto her with one penis while another penis delivers a sperm package. If everything goes smoothly, a roach’s romp can last around 90 minutes. But increasingly, cockroach coitus is going really, weirdly wrong Back in 1993, scientists working at North Carolina State University discovered a trait in the German cockroach, a species that...

    WASHINGTON, D.C—The White House grounds have entered a lockdown following the sighting of a senile old man wandering around waving a gun and making outlandish demands. "Look folks, no more automatic weapons! You hear me, I'm serious! And no more gramblegrawp!" said the old, confused man while pointing his gun at everyone. "I traveled 1700 miles, million miles, so c'mon and listen up! Ghost guns are banned. No Congress needed." Witnesses claim that while the man appeared to be well-dressed, he had no clue who or where he was. "He kept asking 'where's First Lady Kamala' and asking why's nobody...
