    Police officers in Texas City fatally shot and killed a man identified by family members as Carlton Smith, a 20-year-old African-American. Texas City Police Chief Robert Burby said he was shot down because he was armed and was pointing his weapon at one of the officers. What happened, according to the police, is that the manager of HT’s Lounge called to report a fight breaking out inside the club. When the police arrived, they saw an individual firing a gun in the direction of patrons exiting the club. He reportedly pointed his gun at an officer and was shot down....

    In the United States, formal and informal institutions have been in place to control black bodies since before the nation’s founding. It began with slavery, followed with Jim Crow legal segregation, and has been replaced, some argue, with the criminal justice system. African Americans are disproportionately arrested and incarcerated for numerous crimes, even outnumbering whites in prisons (despite representing only 13 percent of the population). The problem with these statistics is that ostensibly, people have to break the law in order to be involved in the justice system. This allows us to suggest, perhaps reasonably, that “it’s not about race.”...

Today, The New Republic is singing a different tune. According to an article written by Rebecca Leber, it's the NRA's fault that the two officers are dead:

    Three fish nearly cost John Yates 20 years in prison. Yates makes his living as a commercial fisherman. In 2007 he was fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. A state wildlife official boarded Yates’ vessel and determined that 72 red groupers (of a 3,000-fish catch) were undersized, issued a civil citation and ordered the fish to be confiscated. When Yates returned to port, armed agents inspected his catch and found only 69 undersized fish. Nearly three years later, federal agents arrested Yates at his home and charged him with violating the Sarbanes-Oxley Act’s anti-shredding rules (yes, the post-Enron Sarbanes-Oxley Act)...

"The most important thing to understand is leaders establish climate, an atmosphere," West told Fox News's Greta Van Susteren Monday night.

    A few weeks ago, on the night of the Ferguson decision, my son returned home after a nightly run. It had been raining, but he hadn’t run yet that day, so after a few hours of homework he ventured out, eager to run three miles. I hadn’t paid attention to his leaving, for I was working, but when he returned home, my heart sank. I wanted to grab and shake him and ask, “Why do you feel as if you have the right to run the streets at night?” My 15-year-old biracial son lives in tony Barrington with us, and...

The Las Vegas Republican was coming off a tumultuous week — she’d been deposed and then quickly restored as majority leader-designate and chairwoman of the Assembly Taxation Committee by Speaker-designate John Hambrick, R-Las Vegas — when she doubled down on allegations that certain Republican forces were targeting her and other conservatives. Speaking on the Alan Stock radio show on KDWN-AM 720 on Tuesday, Fiore not only repeated her rhetoric about a “war on women,” but blamed some of the alleged infantrymen in that conflict: Republican...

    The truth about murder and race in Mississippi may prove reducible to black and white after all, as with fifty years ago in the infamous “Mississippi Burning” case. Breaking, bombshell social media evidence in the Jessica Chambers case suggests the dynamic is reversed, but similar. In trying to follow and sort out the details surrounding the grisly immolation death of the white former cheerleader two weeks ago, one encounters a cast of very shady characters a country mile long and wide, with the sordid backstory of small-town police corruption in Panola County, and a troubled family tale, all of it...

    Do blacks trust police more than whites do? Given the anger over events in Ferguson and New York City, the very question seems absurd. But it is not. Behind the polls and demonstrations, there is evidence that blacks trust police at least as much as whites do. The poll results are hardly surprising. A new Gallup poll confirms blacks place less confidence in police and the criminal justice system. Using survey data from 2006 through 2014, Gallup found:

    CARSON CITY — Las Vegas Assemblywoman Michele Fiore’s tax liens and problems with the IRS were cited in her second removal from Assembly leadership positions Thursday. Fiore’s removal could clear the way for moderate Republicans to control the Assembly in the 2015 session and eliminate any talk of a GOP-Democratic partnership challenge to the leadership. It could also smooth the way for Gov. Brian Sandoval to win more funding for public education. Assembly Speaker designate John Hambrick reversed course on Fiore for a second time in recent weeks and removed the controversial lawmaker as majority leader. She has also been...

    If black lives matter, and we all know they do, we need to work to end the unnecessary and early deaths of black people.  It’s not enough to look at one minor source of black mortality – shootings by law enforcement officers – and ignore the reasons for the vast majority of black deaths. While hard numbers are not readily available, the best estimates available put the total number of people killed by the police across the country in any given year at significantly less than 1,000.  For example, the best estimate for 2011 shows that the police killed...

    California’s “yes means yes” law turns the idea of sexual consent upside down. Suddenly, nearly all sex is rape, unless no person involved reports it as such. Consent, under the California law that is spreading to other American universities, is required to be “ongoing throughout a sexual activity and can be revoked at any time.” The law also states that “a lack of protest or resistance does not mean consent, nor does silence mean consent.” Also, previous sexual activity “should never by itself be assumed to be an indicator of consent.” The law also states that incapacitation due to drugs...

The newspaper says there are 105 for sexual assault and 126 for child abuse. In most cases, police were forced to release the suspects, since the law requires that they can’t be held beyond 72 hours without...

    Last week, the Obama administration announced new curbs on racial profiling by federal law enforcement. Before deciding whether this is good or bad policy, we might try to develop a description/definition of racial profiling or any other kind of profiling. A good definition of profiling in general is the use of an easily observed physical characteristic as a guess for some other, difficult-to-observe characteristic. The reason people profile is that information is costly and they seek methods to economize on information costs. One way to do that is through profiling. Imagine a chief of police in a city where there...

    OKLAHOMA CITY – Formal charges are pending against a high-profile abortion doctor in the metro. Now, one of his former patients breaks her silence over what she calls ‘the worst experience of her life.’ Dr. Patel was arrested earlier this week for fraud. Investigators say he lied to women in order to charge them more for abortions that were, at times, unnecessary. Unlike the undercover agents Patel falsely identified as pregnant, this woman was pregnant when she went to his office. She also has a heart condition that was making it a very difficult pregnancy. She claims Dr. Patel lied...

    WASHINGTON — As U.S. Rep. Phil Gingrey heads for the exits, the House Ethics Committee issued a “letter of reproval” Thursday for Gingrey’s actions on behalf of an Ellijay bank.The committee publicly revealed its findings that the Marietta Republican gave “special favors or privileges” to the since-failed Bank of Ellijay by allowing it to meet in January 2009 with top Treasury Department officials, a member of Congress and a high-ranking congressional staffer about its pending application for funds from the Troubled Asset Relief Program. Gingrey helped start the bank and his investment in it was worth as much as $500,000,...

    A man featured in a Dec. 3 Michigan Capitol Confidential story for being a medical marijuana user and having his property seized and money taken by police without being charged with a crime was arrested at 2 a.m. the next morning by the Michigan State Police within a day after the story was published. Wally Kowalski says he was woken Wednesday to find the police at his door with a felony warrant. He was handcuffed and brought to the Van Buren County Jail where he spent the night in a cold cell without a pillow or blanket. He was arraigned...

    What can we expect from the federal civil rights investigation into the shooting of Mike Brown?When St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch announced that a grand jury didn’t believe there was enough evidence to pursue charges against Officer Darren Wilson in the August shooting of the unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, many thought that any chance for justice for the Brown family had evaporated. In fact, there are two venues for them to pursue some accountability for the loss of their son. They can file a civil suit alleging that Wilson or the Ferguson Police Department is...

    I like Mike Misanelli. I could listen to him talk sports and pop culture for hours on end, and have. Mike is the afternoon host on 97.5 The Fanatic radio station and a fellow contributor to PhillyMag.com. But he is wrong in continuing to use the police shooting in Ferguson as an example of a pervasive racial bias in police departments across America. Missanelli made his case on this site last week when he chastised sports commentator and Hall of Fame basketball player Charles Barkley because he “didn’t express outrage at the non-indictment of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in...

    A Missouri inmate was put to death early Wednesday for fatally beating a 63-year-old woman with a hammer in 1998, the state's record 10th lethal injection of 2014 to match Texas for the most executions in the country this year. Paul Goodwin, 48, sexually assaulted Joan Crotts in St. Louis County, pushed her down a flight of stairs and beat her in the head with a hammer. Goodwin was a former neighbor who felt Crotts played a role in getting him kicked out of a boarding house. Goodwin's execution began at 1:17 a.m., more than an hour after it was...

    She wasn’t just attacked, beaten, and burned alive – she was brutalized beyond all horrific imaginings. When you identify what took place, and contrast her horrific murder against the current national dialogue, you can also understand why the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation (MBI), and all Mississippi politicians, will most likely lead the media to bury this story as quick as possible.

    OKLAHOMA CITY – Attorney General Scott Pruitt charged an Oklahoma City abortion doctor Tuesday with fraud for prescribing abortion-inducing drugs to patients who were not pregnant. Dr. Naresh G. Patel, operating the Outpatient Services for Women clinic in Warr Acres, was charged with three counts of obtaining money under a false pretense after improperly prescribing abortion-inducing drugs to patients that he falsely identified as pregnant. Undercover agents from the Oklahoma Medical Licensure Board, the Oklahoma City Police Department and the Attorney General’s Office set up appointments with Patel where the doctor performed ultrasounds and pregnancy tests on the women where...

    Anyone who followed this year's Senate race in Kansas — the one longtime GOP incumbent Pat Roberts appeared to be losing to Greg Orman, the businessman running as an independent — knows Orman and his supporters vigorously denied Roberts' allegation that Orman was really a Democrat running to further the Democratic agenda. "By word, by deed, by campaign contribution, this man is a liberal Democrat," Roberts said of Orman during a debate in October. "A vote for Greg Orman is a vote to extend the Barack Obama/Harry Reid agenda." Not true, Orman answered. "The senator can say that over and...
