Marine marksman sheds light on how gunmen from the 'hood unwittingly use a well-known aiming technique It's an iconic image immortalised in dozens of Hollywood gangster films: the gangster aiming down the side of his pistol before pumping a volley of bullets into his victim. But with most people knowing that the aiming sights are found on the top of a gun barrel, it's also a counter-intuitive way to accurately fire a weapon. So why is it that gangsters are always shown using their guns in this way? According to Jon Davis,...

    Addressing the U.N. General Assembly last week, President Barack Obama tried to explain this strange attachment that Americans have to freedom of speech. He was handicapped by his attraction to a moral principle whose dangers the journalist Jonathan Rauch presciently highlighted in his 1993 book, "Kindly Inquisitors": "Thou shalt not hurt others with words." During the past few weeks, the widespread, often violent and sometimes deadly protests against "Innocence of Muslims," a laughably amateurish trailer for a seemingly nonexistent film mocking the Prophet Muhammad, have demonstrated the alarming extent to which citizens of Muslim countries -- including peaceful moderates, as...

    Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson says he is leaning toward blocking the use of voter ID for casting ballots in the upcoming election. “It’s a difficult issue,” Simpson observed. “On the one hand, we have a natural desire to ensure that only eligible voters cast ballots. On the other hand, no law is perfect and there is a chance that a legitimate voter could be disenfranchised.” Simpson said he will likely bar the ID requirement because, “I think it is better to let a thousand ineligible voters cast a ballot than to deny one legitimate voter his right to vote.”...

    Cutting across party lines, a group of over 80 lawmakers has introduced a key resolution in the US House of Representatives, lauding contributions of the Sikh-American community and seeking for the first time documentation of hate crimes against them. The resolution introduced by top Congressmen, including Joe Crowley and Howard Berman, yesterday condemned a slew of attacks against Sikhs and their religious institutions over the past year, including the August 5 gurdwara shooting at Oak Creek, Wisconsin, which killed six worshippers. It came hours after the House passed a resolution introduced by Republican Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan condemning the...

He is being held in the Erie County Jail, where he’ll stay until another court appearance next Tuesday. Sandusky police officers...
  • Waffle House Fight Caught On Camera

    "(She) became irate over the length of time it took to receive her order. “It was crazy,” Sharp recounted. “This girl got mad about her cheese omelet not being served in a timely fashion.” “She first came in there and she had a bag of Krystal’s with her, which I thought was rude to begin with,” Wilkes said. She then threw a stapler at a cook, they said. “She picked up a ketchup bottle and threw it at the woman calling the cops,” Sharp said. “She said police don’t scare me.” “She started beating up the cook that was trying...

    Nearly seventeen years ago, former NFL star and actor O.J. Simpson was shockingly acquitted of murdering his ex-wife and her friend. But now a district attorney at the centre of the case has alleged that Simpson’s lead defence lawyer tampered with a crucial piece of evidence – one of the infamous gloves that prosecutors said linked Simpson to the grisly double-murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. After The Juice struggled to fit the gloves on his hands – in one of the defining moments of the racially charged trial that captivated the nation –...

    Among all the bizarre ideas that emanate from the callow and sciolistic mind of the modern American liberal, the statistical disparity argument is one of the most fallacious. It has permeated and destroyed so many aspects of society. It is now being offered by Obama’s education secretary, Arne Duncan, in the area of disciplining school students. I first ran across this during the 1970s as a night school accounting student taking a sociology course. The professor announced the canard that America has something like five percent of the world’s population but uses twenty-five percent of the world’s resources. Do not...

    'I wouldn't do all this nonsense  if the government gave us more money' Hopenchange + Don King = this? There's clearly something wrong with 82-y.o. klepto/Angelino Doris Thompson: first off, she's got a 20-page criminal record dating back to the Eisenhower era, primarily due to the fact that nothing else seems to interest her nearly as much as stealing money. Alas -since she's not particularly clever- Thompson displays a consistent propensity to get caught. She also seems to be missing the guilt chromosome, and mistakenly believes -like so many other losers these days- that the world owes her a living. The...

    ST. PETERSBURG — As the man rushed past the Mariner Car Wash, an employee couldn't help but notice his distinctive forearm tattoo: "Most Wanted." When police investigating a bank robbery came around a few days later, the worker mentioned the man, confirming DNA evidence police had that tied a man with just such a tattoo to the crime.
