    The man accused of gunning down a 32-year-old Pleasanton woman while she was out strolling San Francisco's Embarcadero with her father was in a Bay Area jail four months ago and should have been turned over to federal immigration officials upon his release, instead of being sent free, according to the Department of Homeland Security. But that's not the way the San Francisco County Sheriff's Legal Counsel Freya Horne sees it. In an interview Friday with NBC Bay Area, she said the city and county of San Francisco are sanctuaries for immigrants, and do not turn over undocumented people –...

    The hugely popular link-sharing site is in a state of virtual lockdown after the volunteers who run some of the site’s biggest communities (known as “subreddits”) went on the digital equivalent of a general strike. This followed the sacking of Victoria Taylor, a popular site admin, after a Reddit Q&A with the Rev. Jesse Jackson went badly for the activist preacher. High-traffic subreddits dedicated to movies, gaming, videos, history, science and art have been voluntarily locked by their moderators as an act of protest against the decision, which they saw as a symptom of an increasingly overbearing management that takes...

    Jesse Jackson held an extremely disastrous interview on Reddit, which hosts events in which its users ask celebrities questions. These are called "AMAs," or "Ask Me Anything." Jackson no doubts regrets the entire AMA, which was met with derision from Reddit's users. However, he might regret the answer to one of the questions the most. At one point in the AMA, Jackson was asked (emphasis mine): Mr. Jackson, You are an immoral, hate-filled race baiter that has figured out how to manipulate the political system for your own gain. You've personally set back race relations year after year and continue...

    The fragile bonds of civilization that keep society peaceful and orderly are fraying in the face of mobs organized online. Last Sunday, an organized mob of about 4 dozen people attacked a Walmart in Macon, Georgia, intentionally doing damage to displays and merchandise and dragging a man out of motorized cart and throwing him to the floor. The Macon Telegraph reports: The vandals, said to number between 40 and 50, sprinted down the store’s main aisle about 1:50 a.m. Sunday, “destroying merchandise displays and items,” a sheriff’s deputy’s report of the incident noted. Floors in parts of the store were...

    It was a difficult marriage from the beginning. Its success was largely regional and state by state. But where it worked, it worked well, mainly the South and parts of the West. They papered over their differences for years. Now they've grown apart and a messy divorce looms. It wasn't exactly a shotgun marriage. The Wall Street/Koch Brothers crowd gleefully accepted the support of Tea Party and evangelical leaders, as long as austerity, high-end tax cuts and deregulation were part of the agenda. The cultural right needed money and legitimacy. Everybody got along. No more. The split was thrust into...

    Last week’s Supreme Court ruling forcing every state to recognize same-sex marriage has inspired a New York Times post by David Leonhardt and Alicia Parlapiano, exploring why increasing public acceptance of homosexuality hasn’t been accompanied by increasing acceptance of abortion. This is a question we’ve explored here before too, and they come to basically the same conclusion: while the case against same-sex marriage is somewhat abstract and gay causes tend to have an edge with Americans’ live-and-let-live sensibilities, the fact that abortion has a specific victim means an “unavoidable tension between a mother’s rights and a fetus’s” can never be...

The Donald speaks his mind -- and it is this personality trait that often lands the red-topped billionaire in political, and often legal, hot water. The outspoken real estate mogul, whose net worth is currently valued at US$4.1 billion, has most recently been on the receiving end of a torrent of criticism over comments suggesting Mexican immigrants are “rapists” and drug dealers. Speaking at the New York launch of his presidential run on June 16, Mr. Trump said: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending...

    Bill Cosby will not be charged in connection with actress Lili Bernard’s allegations that the comedian sexually assaulted her in Atlantic City in the early 1990s. “The office of the Atlantic County Prosecutor has terminated its investigation, closed its file and so notified Ms. Bernard’s lawyer,” Edwin J. Jacobs, Jr., Cosby’s New Jersey attorney at Jacobs & Barbone, said via a release. When Bernard first spoke with police this past May, her case appeared to be a lynchpin in the ongoing Cosby scandal due to New Jersey’s lack of a statute of limitations on rape. However, that change in law...

With more than a dozen officers injured in clashes with rioters and looters, some -- including Maryland's governor -- are questioning whether Rawlings-Blake should have acted sooner and taken a tougher tone to prevent the demonstrations from getting out of control.

    This is one of those videos that really requires no explanation. Two of the apparent rioters in Baltimore took time out from looting and injuring police to take pictures with the fruits of their labors. Trophies, as CNN commentator notes. The rioting in Baltimore had been underway for about two hours at this point, a situation that one reporter described as "all out war."

    I’m guessing this is the new face of equality. Or at least a redefinition of sanity. In any case, welcome to the Big Apple, employers! (From the NY Daily News) In front of emotional supporters, Mayor de Blasio signed legislation Monday that will prohibit employers from inquiring about a candidate’s criminal record prior to a job offer.“Today I see hope for people like me,” said Marilyn Scales, 52, of the Bronx, who said she never has had a full-time job because of her record for dealing heroin. As crazy as this may sound, there’s actually a bit more to...

    FORT GREENE, Brooklyn — The Confederate flag controversy continued Monday. Republican Presidential hopeful Jeb Bush weighed in from the campaign trail on the heated debate. “The symbols are racist and if you’re trying to lean forward rather than live in the past, you want to eliminate the barriers that create disagreements,” Bush said. PIX11 has learned a new survey of South Carolina legislators shows there is enough support to remove the Confederate battle flag from their statehouse grounds if lawmakers vote on the issue. Over the weekend, activist Bree Newsome illegally scaled the pole bearing the Confederate flag in Columbia,...

    Turns out there is a silver lining to five justices on the U.S. Supreme Court committing what amounts to cultural self-immolation last week — it winnowed the crowded field of 2016 GOP presidential candidates considerably. After analyzing the historical demographics of the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses, along with the overall environment on the ground, I’m confident we already know who can win here next February and who cannot. Championship Tier Given the demographic dominance of evangelicals in the Iowa Caucuses, where they’re about 60 percent of the vote, as well as Iowa Republicans’ documented disdain for activist judges (see Iowa’s historic...

    The Supreme Court’s decision Friday that same sex marriages are constitutionally guaranteed hasn’t brought the love out from the left — it’s brought out their hate. And it’s disgusting. Jeffrey Luscombe, who describes himself as a gay, Canadian freelance writer, thought it was humorous when a black man, wearing an “Ask Me About Jesus” sweatshirt, was blown kisses by a group of men as he tried to make his way through a gay pride event.

    Fox News/Kelly File Live Broadcast | 6/29/2015 | Watching the Kelly File
    Watching the Kelly File right now where she is breaking some news, discussing the Freddy Gray case. You all may remember the news article about Donta Allen stating that he heard Freddy Gray "trying to hurt himself" inside the van. These claims he later denied to the media, claiming he never even spoke to an investigator. Well, according to Kelly, in a massive evidence dump today, not only did Donta Allen say what the original news article claimed, but the interview is on video. On that video he says "he was trying to hurt himself." Kelly is saying there's no...
