    A federal appeals court ruled 2-1 on Friday that Jaycee Dugard, who was kidnapped from South Lake Tahoe and held in Antioch by a parolee for 18 years, cannot hold federal parole officers liable for failing to supervise her captor.

The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals had already ruled on this case in March, but Friday's decision was an expanded version of their original opinion. Friday's opinion now becomes a legal precedent. Dugard had argued, unsuccessfully, that federal parole officers failed to...

Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates announced the decision on Thursday in a memo that instructs officials to either decline to renew the contracts for private prison operators when they expire or “substantially reduce” the contracts’ scope. The goal, Yates wrote, is “reducing — and ultimately ending — our use of privately operated prisons.”

    President Barack Obama on Wednesday cut short the sentences of 214 federal inmates, including 67 life sentences, in what the White House called the largest batch of commutations on a single day in more than a century.

Obama has pushed for a broader fix to criminal justice laws and has used the aggressive pace of his commutations in...

    If personal sacrifice was a requirement to be president, then Arizona Sen. John McCain would’ve served eight years in the White House. That’s why George Stephanopoulos’ question to Donald Trump on ABC News — “What sacrifice have you made for your country?” was such a setup. Mr. Stephanopoulos was trying to highlight Mr. Trump’s lack of military service, a void Hillary Clinton has on her resume as well. It was meant to embarrass him. Unfortunately, instead of deflecting or praising Khizr Khan’s son, Mr. Trump took the bait and listed his company how he’s created jobs, which most Americans don’t...
