    That is quite the rap sheet. Here are some things that you should know about Freddy Gray. Heavy – Freddie Gray, who died a week after suffering injuries while in Baltimore police custody, had a lengthy criminal record, mainly for drug-related offenses, according to state court records. Police claim he was “involved in criminal activity,” prior to his arrest. Gray, 25, died after spending seven days in a coma as a result of injuries he suffered while in the custody of city police, the Baltimore Sun reports. […] Gray had a lengthy arrest record with convictions dating back until at...

    First of all, they shouldn’t ask. “As a basic principle, we can’t tell you to stop recording,” says Delroy Burton, chairman of D.C.’s metropolitan police union and a 21-year veteran on the force. “If you’re standing across the street videotaping, and I’m in a public place, carrying out my public functions, [then] I’m subject to recording, and there’s nothing legally the police officer can do to stop you from recording.”“What you don’t have a right to do is interfere,” he says. “Record from a distance, stay out of the scene, and the officer doesn’t have the right to come over...

    Houston police said if it wasn't for several brave customers, a police officer wouldn't have survived a brutal attack inside a Walmart. According to investigators, the Houston Community College police officer was working a second job as a security guard at a Walmart off South Post Oak Road in the Meyerland area. Around 2 a.m. Tuesday, a man wielding a large hunting knife walked up to the female guard and, without warning, attacked. "She was sitting there watching the registers, providing security, when he just walked in and attacked her," said Kese Smith, a public information officer with the Houston...

The following chart shows entities that donated to the foundation and lobbied the State Department during Hillary Clinton's tenure. The totals include funding from both the corporate and charitable arms of listed companies (the Gates and Walton foundations are named to illustrate that point). The chart...

    On Thursday, The New York Times reported a bombshell: Russia’s atomic energy agency, Rosatom, managed to acquire full interest in a Canadian firm, Uranium One, over a four-year period – a company that, at one point, owned one-fifth of all uranium in the United States. Uranium, you may recall, is the primary element necessary for the production of both nuclear power and nuclear weapons. What’s more, the Times noted, the evolution of this process – and sale – took place during a time when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, and at a time when money – millions of dollars,...

    A shocking video has emerged from the riots in Baltimore showing a mob of 'protesters' dragging a shopkeeper into the street and assaulting him. The video, shot by a witness, sees the man being forcibly removed from his store, believed to be located in downtown Baltimore, as dozens of protesters gather outside. One of the rioters knocks him flat out with a sucker-punch, and as the man lies in the street, the mob gathers around him. A male protester wearing a hoodie appears to be stomping on the man's head as others kick him while he is out.

    Hillary Clinton has been struggling to interact with everyday Americans on her campaign listening tour, not least because she has a hard time relating to people who have never met a sultan or run a mining business in an authoritarian country. However, she has displayed considerable political and physical skill throughout these interactions, and her opponents would be wise to take note. In addition to her soothing, naturally human laugh, Hillary’s ability to deploy what is commonly known as the “head nod” at crucial moments while pretending to care about normal Americans is nothing short of impressive.

Byers quotes New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait, who said, “I'm sure they [the Clintons] don’t like having a liberal criticize them. It might, in some very marginal way, help open up more space for a Democratic challenger." Chait is a liberal writing for the liberal New York Magazine. Liberals, you’d guess, would rally around the Democrats’ presumed presidential nominee. But they aren’t. They haven’t been. The left’s goal is as it has...

Had Scarborough listened to his own clip? If not, why not? If so, what does he think "no justice, no peace" means? It's true that later in the day, Bryant called for peace in the streets.
