    Authorities are investigating after an Altamonte Springs police officer lost a computer thumb drive with information about confidential informants. The police chief is reviewing the situation and will determine whether there is an official investigation into the actions of the officer, whom the department declines to identify because he works undercover. Each person whose name was on the lost drive will receive a phone call or visit to inform them of the situation, said Altamonte police Lt. Darin Farber. The loss of the thumb drive is just the latest high-profile embarrassment for the department. Another officer – identified by television...

    I think that anyone over the age of forty remembers Vic Cianca even if you don't know it. Vic Cianca was that traffic directing cop from Pittsburgh who did all those crazy and entertaining moves. Cianca's moves became famous in 1964 when Alan Funt surreptitiously filmed him for Candid Camera. Cianca passed away January 24th at the age of 91. May he rest in peace. What people who remember him may not know is that Vic Cianca was a man of faith, a Catholic, and his famous routine developed from the sign of the cross. His son, the Rev....

If not, you can read what Dave Workman, Howard Nemerov, and John Longenecker have written. To recap, Clemmons stormed into a Seattle-area coffee shop and shot and killed four police officers who were working on their paperwork. He was later confronted by officer Benjamin Kelly who approached his stolen car. When Clemmons allegedly refused to comply with Kelly's orders to...

    The senseless and savage slaying of 4 police officers in Lakewood, Washington has raised many questions as to why the alleged murderer was even on the streets. My name has figured prominently in many of the stories because I commuted his 108 year sentence to a term of 47 years back in 2000. I take full responsibility for my decision then. Unfortunately, many of my fellow conservatives don’t seem to want to take responsibility for the facts surrounding the case. The Maurice Clemmons presented in a commutation request in the year 2000 was much different than the one who is...

    US President Barack Obama on Friday hit out at naysayers he blamed for peddling "cynical" claims that global warming is a myth to derail a landmark climate change bill in Congress. Obama warned that the closer the Senate came to passing legislation which has already cleared the House of Representatives, the more opponents would resort to underhand tactics. "The naysayers, the folks who would pretend that this is not an issue, they are being marginalized," Obama warned in a speech at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "But I think it's important to understand that the closer we get, the harder...

This agreement would commit the United States to punitive and expensive greenhouse gas regulations dictated by the United Nations without recourse.

He also killed his ex-wife’s new husband last year by shooting him 24 times in front of their children while he was a cop for another suburban police department. He was suspended for that incident and eventually found work with the Dolton Police Department, where he ended up beating the special needs student who weighed only 140 pounds, breaking his nose and lacerating his face....

But court documents released Tuesday portray Bleiweiss, 29, as a manipulative sex offender who preyed on illegal immigrants too scared to contact authorities. He would act like a jilted lover when the men would not return his calls or text messages, according to those records, based on victims' accounts. Bleiweiss, arrested Monday, faces 14 charges, among them three counts of sexual battery by a person in authority, four counts of battery...

    THE Jack the Ripper ‘industry’ got a boost on the 120th anniversary of his first acknowledged murder. The great-grandson of the police chief in charge of the 1888 Whitechapel Murders arrived at the Ripper exhibition at the Museum in Docklands in East London—just before the 120th anniversary of the murder Mary Ann Nichols, a prostitute known as ‘Polly,’ believed by many to be his first victim. He arrived with evidence from his Victorian ancestor revealing the Ripper’s true identity. Jack the Ripper was never caught and his identity has remained a mystery for 120 years, feeding a whole ‘industry’ that...

    He battled the Viet Cong and infiltrated the Black Panthers, but ex-cop Athelston Kelson turned to crime after a yearlong struggle with liver cancer left him a beaten man, friends say. The 59-year-old NYPD hero and decorated Vietnam vet was arraigned yesterday, accused of being "the Bling Bandit" who raided banks across New York City and Long Island. "The cancer was really getting to him," said a former colleague. "He refused to fight it. He said that he didn't want chemotherapy, that he didn't want to put poison in his body. ". . . He helped so many people, in...

    Nearly everyone carries a cell phone and it’s hard to find one without that camera feature.  It’s convenient when you want to take that impromptu photo, but a Tri-Cities area man ended up behind bars after snapping a shot of a Johnson County sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop. The cell phone photographer says the arrest was intimidation, but the deputy says he feared for his life. “Here’s a guy who takes me out of the car and arrests me in front of my kids.  For what?  To take a picture of a police officer?” said Scott Conover. A Johnson...
