A few months back Senator Reid, who has previously admitted he’s very excited about the fact that that Obamacare is essentially just a clever way to dupe America into a socialist one-payer healthcare system that is totally controlled by the government, showed up to work looking like someone beat him up. At the time, Reid, who has extensive corrupt multi-billion-dollar dealings with Chinese energy companies that would require the...

    (CNN) —There will be no hate crime charges for two males arrested in the beating of a man that may have been sparked by a question about the 2014 shooting of Michael Brown. St. Louis police have charged Ronald Williams, 21, with assault. A 15-year-old has also been arrested, according to authorities. There had been speculation that the suspects might be charged with a hate crime because the victim was white and the people who attacked him were black. And because the punches were thrown following the Michael Brown reference.But that won't be happening.

McMillan claimed to be a lawyer, urged the two not to cooperate with police, hectored the officers and got in the way while shooting video when the officers took the two to a transit...

    "Self-described 'dissident feminist' Camille Paglia has written an op-ed piece for Time Magazine arguing that female college students are naive and careless about the true nature of men as sexual predators. Paglia, 67, a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, penned the column this week in reaction to the recent abduction of University of Virginia sophomore Hannah Graham, 18, who was last seen two weeks ago in the company of a 32-year-old nursing assistant. Jesse Matthew was captured in Texas last week and charged with abduction with intent to defile, but so far there is no sign...

    Gov. Jerry Brown announced Sunday that he has signed a bill that makes California the first in the nation to define when "yes means yes" and adopt requirements for colleges to follow when investigating sexual assault reports. [snip] The legislation says silence or lack of resistance does not constitute consent. Under the bill, someone who is drunk, drugged, unconscious or asleep cannot grant consent. Lawmakers say consent can be nonverbal, and universities with similar policies have outlined examples as a nod of the head or moving in closer to the person.

    I recently witnessed a horrible, violent assault. For over two minutes a man beat the hell out of a woman. Finally, after the woman sustained serious injuries, someone put a stop to it. What makes it worse was that the man was not only not arrested, he announced he has every intention of doing it again. This man is free to assault again, because this man is Fallon Fox. Fallon Fox is a transgendered professional Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter. Last week, it took Fox, who was born a man yet now lives as a woman, about two minutes to...

    A defense lawyer for one of three young adults charged with beating a gay couple during a night on the town insisted the men were injured when a “fist fight … got out of hand,” and not, as Philadelphia police believe, during a homophobic attack. Police said 24-year-old Philip Williams of Warminster; 24-year-old Kathryn Knott of Southampton, the daughter of a suburban police chief; and 26-year-old Kevin Harrigan of Warrington turned themselves in Wednesday morning. The three were charged with criminal conspiracy and two counts each of aggravated and simple assault, and reckless endangerment. Police did not release the names...

    Freedom for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) president Greg Lukianoff “Freedom From Speech,” a 61-page broadside written by Freedom for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) president Greg Lukianoff, deftly illustrates the evolving assault on free speech. “The public’s appetite for punishing attempts at candor gone wrong, drunken rants, or even private statements made in anger or frustration seems to be growing at an alarming rate,” Lukianoff warns. The author cites a range of incidents to make his initial point, covering a large and diverse cast of characters. They include former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson,...

The suspect then started throwing rocks at the victim, one of which hit him in the stomach.

    TRENTON, N.J. -- The pretrial intervention program offered to Ray Rice in the assault case involving his wife was granted in less than 1 percent of all domestic violence assault cases from 2010-13 that were resolved, according to New Jersey Judiciary data obtained Friday by "Outside the Lines." Rice and his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, were arrested on Feb. 15 and charged with simple assault after an incident at an Atlantic City casino. Janay's charges were later dropped, but on March 27, an Atlantic City grand jury increased Rice's assault charge to aggravated assault-bodily injury in the third degree causing bodily...
