Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said the suspects -- a husband, wife, and their two adult sons -- were arrested in connection with the Rhoden family murders. "Following an extensive investigation by my office’s #OhioBCI and the #PikeCounty Sheriff’s Office, we have arrested four people accused of the murders of eight people in Pike County on April 22, 2016," DeWine tweeted.

Early Sunday morning, agents found the suspect near the Interstate 35 mile marker 31 location and took him into custody. Information obtained by Breitbart News from Laredo Sector Border Patrol officials revealed that the agents determined the suspect to be a Mexican national with no legal basis to be in the U.S.

    Her winning platform included a push for criminal justice reform, and a controversial policy of no longer prosecuting people for lower-level non-violent crimes, like dealing small amounts of drugs, shoplifting, or standalone resisting arrest charges. Instead, she has vowed to focus on resolving those issues via alternatives to jail, like community service or restitution. “This is the time for us to claim our power and make good on our promises to make true criminal justice reform for the people in Suffolk County,” Rollins said at the time. “Reform that is progressive – that decriminalizes poverty, substance use disorder, and mental...

    An illegal alien previously detained by a sanctuary city in New Jersey has been accused of killing three individuals in Missouri, but federal authorities argue that these crimes could have been prevented if better cooperation existed between immigration officials and local enforcement. According to Fox News, "Luis Rodrigo Perez, 23, a native of Mexico, is charged with fatally shooting two men and wounding two others on Nov. 1 and fatally shooting a woman the next day."Perez had previously been detained by Middlesex County, NJ authorities on domestic violence charges. Immigration and Customs Enforcement placed a detainer on the illegal alien, which...

    Members of Missouri's legislative black caucus on Thursday elected state Rep. Steven Roberts, D-St. Louis, to chair the group — but Roberts' ascension drew criticism from one of his colleagues who two years ago accused Roberts of raping her. Rep. Cora Faith Walker, D-Ferguson, announced Thursday on Facebook that she was leaving the caucus. "I have resigned from the Missouri Legislative Black Caucus," Walker wrote. "I stand in my truth and am incredibly grateful to my colleagues who stand with survivors."

    After losing his bench in a Democratic sweep the night before, Harris County Juvenile Court Judge Glenn Devlin released nearly all of the youthful defendants that appeared in front him on Wednesday morning, simply asking the kids whether they planned to kill anyone before letting them go. "He was releasing everybody," said public defender Steven Halpert, who watched the string of surprising releases. "Apparently he was saying that's what the voters wanted." The long-time Republican jurist is one of two judges whose track record of favoring incarceration contributed heavily to doubling the number of kids Harris County sent to the...

    A 16-year-old rapper has become London's fifth stabbing victim in under a week as the number of people knifed to death in Britain this year hits 250. The teenager was found with suspected stab wounds in Tulse Hill, south London, after police were called to reports of a shooting at 10.53pm last night. Paramedics tried to save the boy, but he was pronounced dead at 11.41pm, forcing Metropolitan Police to open its 119th murder investigation in the capital this year. Friends said the boy was a drill rapper known as 'JaySav' and claimed the attack may be connected to the...
  • Prison reform bill to include sentencing, setting up post-election fight

    Washington Examiner ^ | Nov. 5, 2018
    Criminal justice reform advocates say sentencing reform provisions will be included in legislation unveiled shortly after midterm elections Tuesday, triggering an intense lame-duck struggle over attaching penalty reductions to a White House-backed prison reform bill. The First Step Act passed the House in a 360-59 vote earlier this year, but without sentencing reforms, at the behest of Republican opponents. Reform advocates expect rapid legislative action after a pre-election pause, and believe there will be enough votes to pass the expanded legislative package. Two people close to the process tell the Washington Examiner that a bipartisan group of senators has agreed...

    The unveiling of a new GOP TV ad featuring Luis Bracamontes, an illegal immigrant who was convicted of killing two California deputies in 2014, was declared "unfair" by what the media described as numerous "experts." Arizona State University professor Kim Fridkin called it a "scare tactic. Just because some immigrants are murderers doesn't mean we shouldn't let them in. After all, some native born Americans are murderers. Does this mean we should kick them out? I think we ought to pay heed to the wisdom of Forrest Gump. A caravan of immigrants is like a box of chocolates—you never know...

    A recent article in the New Yorker extolling the (probable) next Governor of California reveals that Gavin Newsom helped his mother commit assisted suicide. From the article: Newsom’s sister, Hilary, said that when their mother had breast cancer, in her fifties, he was difficult to reach. “Gavin had trouble explaining to me how hard for him it was to be with her when she was dying, and I had trouble explaining to him how much I needed him,” she said. “Back then, he seemed like the kind of guy who would never change a diaper.” In May, 2002, his mother...
