    There was a brief pause in the nightly protests/riots taking place in Portland last month because wildfires had rendered the air hazardous. Even so, police made more than 200 arrests last month. But as expected, nearly all of those arrested have already had the charges against them dropped: Officers with the Portland Police Bureau, as well as Oregon State Police, made 213 arrests in September, according to a KOIN 6 News database compiled from press releases and direct inquiries. That’s a decrease from August, which had a record 295 arrests…As in August, interfering with a peace officer was the...

    Portland, Oregon - The U.S. Attorney in Oregon announced federal charges Tuesday against seven protesters who are accused in court papers of defacing a federal courthouse and assaulting federal officers during protests in Portland, Oregon against racial injustice and police brutality.

    Saying it was against building policy, a Mercedes-Benz Superdome police officer was telling LSU football players to extinguish their victory cigars Monday night in the jubilant locker room minutes after winning the national championship when he felt LSU alum and NFL pro Odell Beckham Jr. slap him on the backside. The 48-year-old lieutenant suppressed the urge to punch Beckham in retaliation, called the New Orleans Police Department a little more than a day later and told investigators he wanted to press charges, according to court records. Police by Thursday morning had obtained a warrant to arrest Beckham, 27, on a...

    More charges have been laid in connection with an antifa-related protest at Mohawk College in September. Hamilton police are still looking to identify some additional suspects.  Alaa Al Soufi, 27, was the latest to be arrested on Nov. 19 and has four charges pending including assault, theft under $5000, intimidation, and disguise with intent.   The charges stem from an earlier altercation that took place during a Dave Rubin and Maxime Bernier fundraiser for the People’s Party. The fundraiser was held at Mohawk College on Sept. 29, 2019. The event went viral after video appeared of an elderly woman having her pathway blocked by a group of...

    A parolee charged with killing a University of Illinois at Chicago honor student spotted her as she walked alone past a CTA Blue Line stop on campus early Saturday morning and grew angered when she ignored his repeated attempts to talk, Cook County prosecutors alleged Tuesday. As Ruth George reached her car in a UIC parking garage, prosecutors said, Donald Thurman grabbed her around the neck from behind and put her in a chokehold. With his arm still wrapped around her neck, Thurman dragged an unconscious George to her car and threw her in the back seat, where he sexually...

    The decision by a Swedish prosecutor to drop an investigation into an allegation of rape against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange ended the near decade-old case that had sent the campaigner into hiding in London’s Ecuadorian embassy to avoid extradition. The prosecutor’s decision can be appealed, but it is believed it will closed a case which was launched in 2010. The accuser’s lawyer said she was studying whether to appeal the decision. Assange, an Australian citizen, skipped bail in Britain to avoid possible extradition and took refuge in the Ecuador embassy in 2012. He was dragged out by police in April...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A Justice Department investigation of two prominent lobbyists that was spun off from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe has concluded without charges. Justice Department lawyers recently informed representatives for Tony Podesta and former Rep. Vin Weber that they have ended the investigation. Their unregistered lobbying work for pro-Russia Ukrainian interests had come under investigation first by Mueller and later by federal prosecutors in New York. Weber lawyer Robert Trout says he and his client are “obviously” pleased with the outcome. The move, first reported by The Washington Post, follows the acquittal of prominent Washington lawyer Greg...

    An assault at The Great Frederick Fair that ultimately led to a man’s death sparked questions about why the two teenage brothers allegedly involved were charged as juveniles. The two brothers — one 15, one 16 — could not automatically be charged as adults under Maryland law, Frederick County State’s Attorney Charlie Smith said at a press conference Monday. “I can tell you, I don’t make the law,” Smith said. “I just prosecute people who break it.” The 15-year-old was charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment, and the 16-year-old was charged with second-degree assault in the death...

    Two female students who live-streamed their taunting and name-calling of Border Patrol agents during their visit to a forum at the University of Arizona are being charged with criminal action by campus police. “I want to update you on developments regarding last week’s incident with the Border Patrol officers on campus and to reaffirm the University of Arizona’s relationship with the leadership and the women and men serving in U.S. Customs and Border Protection,” university President Robert C.

    CBS 2 has obtained an internal email from the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office regarding a search for felony cases dropped under similar circumstances to the Jussie Smollett case. “We are looking for examples of cases, felony preferable, where we, in excersing [sic] our discretion, have entered into verbal agreements with defense attorneys to dismiss charges against an offender if certain conditions were met, such as the payment of restitution, completion of community service, completion of class, etc., but the defendant was not placed in a formal diversion program,” the email states.

    Brutally murdering unborn babies no longer a crime in Dem-run state A Queens man who beat and stabbed his pregnant girlfriend and her baby to death was spared abortion charges thanks to New York’s recently-enacted abortion law. Queens District Attorney Richard Brown initially released a statement saying 48-year-old Anthony Hobson would be charged with murder and abortion for the fatal stabbing of his girlfriend Jennifer Irigoyen earlier this month. “A woman was brutally stabbed — killing her and the unborn child,” Brown said in the statement. “The defendant is alleged to have shown no mercy and no regard for human...

    RALEIGH, N.C. -- Police filed charges Friday against three people accused of helping tear down a century-old Confederate statue during a protest this week at North Carolina's flagship university.

Orange County District Attorney Jim Woodall confirmed to WNCN that three people face charges of misdemeanor riot and misdemeanor defacing of a public monument.

    In an Orwellian nightmare, Eren Erdem, a former MP, journalist and the author of 9 books, who has courageously dedicated his career to exposing and condemning terrorist organizations, is now being accused of "aiding terrorists". The real terrorists he has condemned, however, remain free. Erdem is paying the price for telling the truth in Turkey. He has risked his life to stop ISIS and help save lives. Now is the time for human rights activists and the media to defend him. "Where are the police forces? I identified 10.000 addresses [of ISIS members] in these documents of investigations conducted...

    Citibank and Barclay Credit Cards can be denied based on systems issues. Barclay readily acknowledges they have an issue but it took over 20 minutes on the phone with Citibank for them to get their administration to acknowledge they have an issue. In my specific case I was trying to buy an airline ticket but it kept getting a system error. Calls to the CC company did not fix the problem, however it was nice to find out it was their issue. It seem strange that both Citi and Barclay would have the same issue at the same time. Looks...

    American prosecutors have dropped charges against 11 members of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s guards who were accused of attacking peaceful protestors in Washington in 2017. According to a report by Wall Street Journal, prosecutors asked judges to drop charges against four guards in November. Then they dropped charges against seven others on February 14, the day before State of Secretary Rex Tillerson’s visit to Turkey. A source told WSJ that Tillerson, in his private talks with Turkish leaders, pointed to the decisions to drop charges—which hadn’t been publicized or announced—as an example of how the U.S. had addressed Mr. Erdogan’s...

    American pastor Andrew Brunson, behind bars in Turkey on terrorism-related charges, risks up to 35 years in jail in a politically loaded case that critics describe as “an eclipse of reason.” (held in Turkey since October 2016 on terror-related charges, he is seen in an undated picture.) A Turkish prosecutor is seeking up to 35 years in jail for Andrew Brunson, the American pastor at the heart of a bitter diplomatic spat between Ankara and Washington. Held on terror-related charges since October 2016, Brunson has seemingly become a bargaining chip, with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan suggesting last year that...

    The Department of Justice is looking into whether Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf obstructed justice by warning Northern California residents of an impending raid by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The agency’s acting director, Thomas Homan, told “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning that the DOJ is “reviewing” whether Schaaf broke any laws by telling her constituents ICE would be raiding the area in order to arrest people violating federal immigration laws.
