    ( - Coming soon, a new checkpoint experience for airline passengers. Testifying before a House Oversight subcommittee on Tuesday, Peter Neffenger, the new head of the Transportation Security Agency, said he envisions "a day where the checkpoint looks very different from what it does today. With the exception of the full-body scanners, "We're still largely dealing with ...the same kind of checkpoint we've had for the past decade or more. And I think we're on the cusp of a very different looking checkpoint experience in the next five years."

    Larry Ira Estrin, 62, was at a vehicle checkpoint near Sherman Way and Lankershim Boulevard when a police dog screening cars with its handler signaled that it had detected a firearm, Los Angeles police said. ... Authorities found a loaded gun under the passenger seat and detained Estrin. He was being booked Wednesday afternoon on a misdemeanor charge of possession of a loaded firearm and was held in lieu of $35,000 bail, said Sgt. Kyle Kirkman of the LAPD’s North Hollywood division. Estrin, of Los Angeles, will probably be released later in the day...

    A man, woman and their 4-year-old boy at an unidentified Inland Border Patrol checkpoint are ordered and pulled from their vehicle, questioned and taken into custody – all for the seeming offense of refusing to say where they were headed. A video of the incident, recorded by the family’s dashboard camera, opens with the man and woman chit-chatting with their son in the back, later identified as 4, and pulling up to a border checkpoint. The man, who’s driving, has his window a third of the way down.

    A controversial new flyer is helping some people dodge DUI checkpoints, without even speaking a word to the police. Motorists who pull up to sobriety checkpoints are holding up the “Fair DUI Flyer.” The flyer reads “I remain silent, no searches and I want my lawyer,” along with a short list of state laws. Drivers who are passing through DUI checkpoints don't roll down the window, but instead display the flyer with their driver’s license, insurance and registration. …

    The Springfield Police Department, along with the Clark County Sheriff’s Department and Ohio State Highway Patrol were in for a big surprise last night when members of a local “Cop Block” chapter turned up to warn drivers about the disturbing “sobriety” checkpoint that was set up. The Clark County OVI Task Force said that their sobriety checkpoint was a “no refusal” inspection of drivers, to “make sure no one’s out drinking and driving,” an officer with the Springfield Police told us. The checkpoint was conducted at State Route 40 and State Route 68 in Clark County and began at 8:00...

      At the new de facto border that's developed on actual mainland Ukraine at Chonhar, Kherson Oblast (not Crimea), VICE journalist/correspondent/filmmaker Simon Ostrovsky attempted to take 'the safest way' into Crimea from Ukraine (train/on foot) yesterday, which required passing both Ukrianian and Russian checkpoints... The Ukrainians were pretty cool, inviting him inside the commander's tank for a brief interview. Although he stated he was of 'Russian blood', the Ukrainian officer made it abundantly clear how little that meant to him in the current confrontation: 'If your are an invader, we will fend off your invasion. It doesn't matter who it is.' He went on...

    A heavily populated area in Brownsville got some heavy police presence Wednesday. Brownsville police officers set up a checkpoint on Honeydale to check license and registrations and to watch out for speeders. Some people were not happy about it. But Eliza Panciera welcomed the surprise initiative to deter unsafe driving in her neighborhood. "I think they should come out here every day." Eliza has seen firsthand the dangers of speeding here. "One time a car came fast around the corner and ended flipping over there." Some vehicles have even ended up in a canal that runs right next to Eliza's...

    After seeing an op-ed headlined, “The Pro-Israel Tent ‘Doesn’t Matter If It Can’t Hold Disagreement,” written by my Brandeis classmates Eli Philip and Catie Stewart which appeared in a Philadelphia Jewish paper and several J Street online sources, I feel compelled to provide much needed additional information and context, so that readers can determine for themselves what is the matter, if anything, with our – and others – pro-Israel tent. In their article, Philip and Stewart describe an incident that occurred at a pro-Israel event on campus earlier in the semester, during which Captain Barak Raz, a former spokesperson for...

    At least one Egyptian soldier was killed and two were wounded as Islamist gunmen opened fire on the El Arish airport in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula and at three military checkpoints early on Friday, state television reported. According to the report, the attackers fired rocket-propelled grenades at the army checkpoints outside the airport, close to the border with Gaza and Israel. It was not clear whether the coordinated attack was related to the military overthrow of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi on Wednesday.

    Dear Mr. Security Agent, Federal, state, or local. You, the man or woman with the badge, the sworn LEO or FLEA and those who inhabit the many law enforcement niches in between and on all sides. This essay is directed to you, because in the end, how this turmoil about gun control turns out will depend largely upon your decisions and actions over the coming months and years. I sincerely wish that members of Congress—who may soon be voting on new gun control measures—would read this essay, but I realize that’s a pipe dream, considering the impenetrable bubbles around those...

    Israel has approved several relief measures for the Palestinian Authority Arab population of Judea and Samaria, in honor of the upcoming Muslim Eid al-Adha holiday. The Coordinator of Government Activities in Judea and Samaria said on Thursday that as part of these relief measures, some roadblocks in the area will be removed, in accordance with to a decision by Central Command. A military source told Arutz Sheva the roadblocks to be removed are not the larger checkpoints but rather small barriers at the entrances to Arab villages, a move that would facilitate Arab movement within the villages during the holiday....

    AUSTIN — The Department of Public Safety would be given the power to establish driver's license and insurance checkpoints along state roads as part of a broader border security bill introduced Thursday. The checkpoint provision is part of a bill that supporters say would crack down on drug cartels and human smuggling rings operating in Texas. It would require that every person booked into prison in Texas have their citizenship checked. It also would increase criminal penalties for gang and cartel members and increase fines for drug crimes. “We want to have a package that's focused on solving our unique...

    In a War by Ari Bussel In a war, one must fight to survive, and to win. Israel is in a war, although the missiles are not yet raining over Tel Aviv and the center of Israel. The geographic war over this tiny peace of land along the shores of the Mediterranean will be fateful, one in which soldiers will sacrifice their lives and innocent people will die. The war would decide either the extinction of the Jewish People or the continuation of the existence of Jews around the world; but winning it is not a sufficient condition. A physical...

The Deputy Foreign Minister is looking into the possibility of pressing charges against the student for what is tantamount to a call for genocide. Two...

    ( Weapons are flowing freely into Shechem and other Palestinian Authority-controlled towns in Samaria thanks to the recent removal of IDF checkpoints. So reports a senior IDF source who spoke to the Hebrew-language Arutz Sheva this week on condition of anonymity. The weapons come to Shechem from the south, the source explained. Weapons are smuggled from the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt to Israel's Negev desert. From there, they are smuggled to the Hevron region, where the Judea and Samaria security barrier remains incomplete.
