    The National Football League announced Thursday that it will freeze its new policy requiring players to remain standing during the national anthem. The NFL said in a statement that it has been “working on a resolution to the anthem issue” with the NFL Players Association (NFLPA), one week after the association filed a grievance against the league over its controversial anthem policy. “In order to allow this constructive dialogue to continue, we have come to a standstill agreement on the NFLPA’s grievance and on the NFL’s anthem policy,” the NFL's statement reads. “No new rules relating to the anthem will...

    FOREST HILLS (KDKA) — Hundreds of protesters blocked traffic on the Parkway East, creating a major traffic jam late Thursday night into early Friday morning, as they held another rally in response to the police-involved shooting of 17-year-old Antwon Rose Jr. by East Pittsburgh police officer Michael Rosfeld. The protesters marched from the East Pittsburgh Police Station, down Route 30 in Forest Hills to the Parkway East where they blocked traffic in both directions, backing up traffic for miles for hours. Around 1 a.m. Friday, police told the protesters still on the scene to leave or be arrested. Around 1:30...

    Hundreds of protesters turned out again Monday, taking over the same block of 71st Street where police shot and killed a man in the South Shore neighborhood on Saturday. The protests continued after police made the unprecedented decision to release body-camera video of the incident, less than 24 hours after it happened. It's been two days since 37-year-old Harith Augustus was shot and killed during a confrontation with Chicago police officers. An independent investigation into the shooting is underway, but several groups say they don't trust it. "I think that Mr. Augustus' constitutional rights were violated," said Maxwell Little, South...

    The New York Police Department (NYPD) reportedly announced that Monday that the police officer accused of choking to death Eric Garner, an unarmed black man, will face a disciplinary hearing. White NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo could face dismissal nearly four years after Garner’s death, the Associated Press reported. The lawyer for the NYPD criticized the Department of Justice (DOJ) for dragging its feet on whether it will bring about a federal criminal case. “Based on our most recent conversations, it has become clear that a definite date by which time a final decision by the U.S. DOJ will be rendered...

Helgerson said it all started when the women were having dinner at the Industrial Boulevard location in McDonough, and one of the diners was sitting with her leg out in an aisle. “The waitress had brushed up against her leg,” Helgerson said....

    The Left is using blacks and the compromised Black Lives Matter movement to launch a violent civil war in the United States, according to a popular viral video by a former Black Lives Matter activist. The video has been receiving a great deal of attention from conservatives because it gives voice to concerns and anxieties expressed by Trump supporters in this time of escalating hostility and physical violence against those who support the Trump administration. The speaker in the video dated Oct. 4 gives his name as Chaziel (pronounced Cha-zee-ell) Sunz and says he is “not a big Trump fan.”...

    A man with a long-standing beef against the Annapolis, Maryland, newspaper Capital Gazette entered the paper’s headquarters with a shotgun and murdered five staffers. It represents the deadliest attack on U.S. reporters in modern history. Before learning about the suspect’s mental issues and his long-standing feud with the newspaper, some in the media blamed President Donald Trump. After all, critics said, Trump routinely denounces “fake news” as an existential threat to our republic. Connect the dots, they said. Blame Trump! CNN aired a montage of Trump’s attacks on the media. Rob Cox, a Reuters editor, tweeted: “This is what happens...

    A federal judge rejected prosecutors’ request Tuesday to reconsider her dismissal of the case against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, his two sons and friend Ryan Payne. U.S. District Judge Gloria M. Navarro dismissed conspiracy charges against the four men on Jan. 8 after finding that prosecutors had acted “with prejudice” throughout the trial, The Oregonian reported. Federal prosecutors violated federal law and failed to share evidence favorable to the defendants case with the court. “The Court’s finding of outrageous government conduct was not in error,” Navarro wrote in her 11-page ruling, obtained by The Oregonian. “On the contrary, a universal...

    Democrat Mayor Karen Peconi is facing public backlash after a series of messages in which she reportedly called for “rioters to be destroyed by a water cannon.” On Facebook, the Arnold, Westmoreland County, mayor reportedly said that she was “posting this so the authorities everywhere sees this … bring the hoses.” Then, “they don’t care about jobs for PGH … none of them work now. That’s how they can do this at 7 a.m. Very sad.” Another post references a 1963 protest photo in which a large water cannon is taking aim at protesters demanding equal rights, saying, “we need...

As others have explained recently, including Ace, Kurt Schlichter, Tom Kratman, and many other luminaries on the Right, we are perched on the edge of a knife. Violence is simmering beneath the surface - perhaps even a full-blown Civil War. Francis explains: There's no reasoning with one who considers you evil. There's certainly no compromising with him. He's out to destroy you. He'll take whatever opportunity you offer to slip the dirk between your fourth and fifth ribs and twist it....

    The suburban Pittsburgh police officer who fatally shot 17-year-old Antwon Rose was charged Wednesday with criminal homicide. East Pittsburgh Police Officer Michael Rosfeld shot Rose, who was unarmed, three times in the back on June 19 as the teen fled a car that had been stopped by police.

    She was eager to tout a drop in the Cook County Jail population, down from more than 10,000 in 2013 to about 6,000 today. Preckwinkle and Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx have crusaded for reforms that encourage judges to release non-violent suspects on their own recognizance, rather than require them to post cash bonds. That is saving taxpayer dollars and getting people back home to go to work and support their families. But, I noted, “there’s a perception that you and Kim Foxx are too lenient …” “Soft on crime?” she interjected. “It’s the term Republicans use to beat...

Starbucks closed 8,000 stores for several hours on May 30 to facilitate seminars for its employees after the coffee shop was at the forefront of a racial controversy in April. “It felt like we were off task the entire time because we didn’t reflect on the situation itself,” a black 18-year-old...
