    DALLAS -- Micah Xavier Johnson told Army investigators that he had “no friends and not enough money” and that he once punched out a car window in a fit of frustration after a female friend and fellow soldier backed out of seeing a movie with him, newly released military documents show. The documents were part of an Army investigation into Johnson’s theft of that female soldier’s panties while both were deployed to Afghanistan in May 2014. The Army ultimately concluded that Johnson sexually harassed the soldier.

    A Youtube account operated by Gavin Eugene Long and discovered by The Daily Caller reveals key insight into what might have motivated the 29-year-old black man who killed three Baton Rouge police officers Sunday morning. Videos on Long’s account show that he was a former Nation of Islam member. He also ranted against “crackers” and made references to Alton Sterling, the black man killed by police in Baton Rouge on July 5. Other information about Long shows that the Kansas City native, who CBS reported was honorably discharged from the Marines in 2010, went by the name Cosmo Ausar Setepenra.

    A former Marine dressed in black and carrying extra ammunition shot and killed three Baton Rouge law enforcement officers Sunday, less than two weeks after a black man was fatally shot by police here in a confrontation that sparked nightly protests that reverberated nationwide. Three other officers were wounded, one critically. Police said the gunman was killed at the scene. The shooting less than a mile from police headquarters added to the tensions across the country between the black community and police. Just days earlier, one of the slain officers had posted an emotional Facebook message about the challenges of...

    Trump’s biggest problem in this election so far is that most racists appear to be on his side. At least it looks that way to the public. That awkward perception allowed Team Clinton to brand the Trump campaign as the racist team. Clinton’s strategy of racial politics has been effective. I recently blogged that “crooked” beats “racist” every time, meaning that unless something changes, Clinton has the persuasion advantage. But today we see in the polls that the candidates are effectively tied. What changed? The biggest change is not the FBI’s decision on Clinton’s email scandal, although that is clearly...

    When Dallas police used a bomb-carrying robot to kill a sniper, they also kicked off an ethical debate about technology’s use as a crime-fighting weapon. In what appears to be an unprecedented tactic, police rigged a bomb-disposal robot to kill an armed suspect in the fatal shootings of five officers in Dallas. While there doesn’t appear to be any hard data on the subject, security experts and law enforcement officials said they couldn’t recall another time when police have deployed a robot with lethal intent.

    Yet another theme running through the Democrat primary this year is the idea that America locks up too many people. We’re an incarceration nation according to the American Psychological Association. We lock up more people per capita than any other nation in the world, which is seen by many progressive observers as a symptom of deeper illness or fundamental evil in the American brand, primarily because the inmates are viewed as being disproportionately people of color. This has led a group of activists, including some inner city police officials, to take their case directly to the President. (Mother Jones)...

    The state parole board has received 500 letters in anticipation of a hearing today over whether convicted cop-killer Joel Lee Compton will be released from prison. But to the widow of Albuquerque police officer Gerald Cline – who Compton shot and killed 32 years ago – one particular letter stands out. “We were very touched, and we appreciate it,” said Yolanda Cline. “You’re not defined by what your relatives did. You can’t choose them.” In fewer than 200 words, Sharron Compton, sister of Joel Lee Compton, spells out why her brother should not be released from prison despite three decades...

    <p>Two NYPD cops were executed Saturday after a career criminal drove from Baltimore to Brooklyn to kill police officers in a twisted bid to avenge the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. “They were, quite simply, assassinated,” a shaken NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said Saturday night. The shooter — identified as Ismaaiyl Brinsley — boasted about wanting to murder cops in the hours before he ambushed the officers outside the Tompkins Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant about 2:45 p.m. “I’m putting wings on pigs today. They take 1 of ours ... let’s take 2 of theirs,” Brinsley, 28, wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of a silver handgun.</p>
