    For over a decade, under multiple administrations, the U.S. government had a secret agreement with the ruthless Mexican Sinaloa drug cartel that allowed it to operate with impunity, an in-depth investigation by a leading Mexican newspaper confirmed this week. In exchange for information and assistance in quashing competing criminal syndicates, the Bush and Obama administrations let the Sinaloa cartel import tons of drugs into the United States while wiping out Sinaloa competitors and ensuring that its leaders would not be prosecuted for their long list of major crimes. Other revelations also point strongly to massive but clandestine U.S. government involvement...

    The woman who accused Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexually assaulting her in Boston 15 years ago says she will now share her allegations with the local district attorney — after the politician threatened to pursue her for filing a “false criminal complaint.” Suffolk DA Rachael Rollins said earlier Wednesday that she’d reached out to lawyers representing accuser Vanessa Tyson about her allegation that Fairfax forced her to perform oral sex on him during the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston. In a response to the Boston Globe, Fairfax’s spokeswoman reiterated his denial and said he’d cooperate with an...

    Jay-Z, Meek Mill and sport and business leaders have pledged $50m (£38m) to reform the US criminal justice system. The Reform Alliance, which was inspired by Meek Mill's recent stint in prison for a minor probation violation, hopes to free one million prisoners in five years. The owners of the New England Patriots and Philadelphia 76ers, Robert Kraft and Michael Rubin, are co-founders. Reform says it wants to help people who are "trapped in the system". The group's "mission" is to "dramatically reduce the number of people who are unjustly under the control of the criminal justice system, starting with...

    Police in Arlington, TX had their hands full after an officer-involved shooting that left one dead and an officer seriously wounded. The dead man’s family demanded to know why 20-year-old Tre’Shun Miller ended up dead after a simple traffic stop. The family presented the media with the photo above. Meanwhile, for anyone looking, Tre’Shun’s Facebook page provided a treasure trove of photos indicating crime: Of course, most folks don’t dig that deep. But the Arlington PD didn’t disappoint. Days after the family challenged the cops for proof of what happened, Arlington PD delivered. They released the bodycam video showing...

    If people did not indulge in such abject evasions as the claim that some contemptible liar “means well”—that a mooching bum “can’t help it”—that a juvenile delinquent “needs love”—that a criminal “doesn’t know any better”—that a power-seeking politician is moved by patriotic concern for “the public good”—that communists are merely “agrarian reformers”—the history of the past few decades, or centuries, would have been much different.

    HUNTINGTON STATION, Long Island -- Police said a teenager was stabbed in an attack by three MS-13 members from his high school behind a Long Island Burger King. It happened on New York Avenue in Huntington Station around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. The 16-year-old victim told police he was at the fast-food restaurant with friends when six of his classmates from Huntington High School entered and began staring at them menacingly. Feeling uncomfortable, the victim and a friend left, and the three gang members followed them, wielding bats and knives, police said. An altercation broke out in the parking lot, and...

    A man who is already in custody in connection with a string of burglaries in the Malibu Creek State Park area has now been charged with murder in the fatal shooting of a father who was camping in the park in late June and other shootings, authorities announced Monday. Anthony Rauda, 42, was charged with one count of murder, 10 counts of attempted murder and five counts of second-degree burglary, Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office officials said. Rauda allegedly opened fire on campers and motorists in incidents dating back to November 2016. On June 22, Rauda is accused of...

    If Van Jones, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Kim Kardashian all agree on a bill, it’s probably not a good idea. Republicans and Democrats came together to pass the FIRST STEP Act into law this month, which will allow felons early release. It’s being touted as a criminal justice system overhaul, to let nonviolent offenders out of prison for good behavior. But as Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who graduated from Harvard Law School, observed, “there are almost no low-level, non-violent offenders in federal prison.” If they are in prison for low-level convictions, it’s because they were allowed to plea down to a...

    UN Human Rights Chief Michelle Bachelet criticises the Danish government’s plan to place criminal migrants on a deserted island. According to her, it is not good to stigmatise migrants in this way.About a week ago Denmark’s Finance Minister Kristian Jensen announced that criminal foreigners in the future will be placed on an uninhabited island in anticipation of expulsion.After the island has been cleared of swine fever. The migrants will be allowed to leave the island during the day but must stay there at night. The decision was taken in conjunction with budget negotiations with the Danish People’s party. “Hooray!”, wrote...

(snip) --- “One basic element of this new agreement is the extension of the definition of hate speech. “The agreement wants to criminalise migration speech. Criticism of migration will become a criminal offence. “Media outlets that give room to criticism of migration can be shut down.

    Border Patrol agents arrested an MS-13 gang member on Saturday who had crossed the border illegally after hiding among migrants who planned to apply for asylum. The man was not Salvadoran, as MS-13 members usually are. Nor was he arrested at the San Ysidro crossing at San Diego on the other side of the border from Tijuana, where nearly 6,000 migrants await application for asylum. But his arrest demonstrates once again the danger of criminals hiding with the Tijuana contingent. The estimate is that between 500 and 600 — about 10 percent of the contingent — are criminals. This latest...

    YUMA, Ariz. – Last night, Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents and a CBP pilot had rocks thrown at them when they tried to arrest a subject who claimed to have been part of the migrant caravans. On Friday night, at approximately 5:45 p.m., Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents discovered footprints from a subject who had illegally crossed from Mexico into the United States just east of the Andrade, Calif. port of entry. Agents radioed for a CBP Air and Marine helicopter to assist and it responded a short time later. The agents tracked the suspect for almost a mile until...

    The package of criminal justice reform proposals endorsed by President Donald Trump is not "soft" on crime. It's tough on injustice. And it's about time. Known as the "First Step Act," the legislation confronts the Titanic failure of the federal government's trillion-dollar war on drugs by reforming mandatory minimum sentences, rectifying unscientifically grounded disparities in criminal penalties for crack vs. powder cocaine users, and tackling recidivism among federal inmates through risk assessment, earned-time credit incentive structures, re-entry programs and transitional housing. There's nothing radical about giving law-breakers who served their time an opportunity to turn their lives around and avoid...

    Mayor de Blasio is a such a big believer in the free press that he let two bodyguards physically remove a credentialed Post reporter who had the temerity to ask him a question in public on Sunday. The unusual muzzling unfolded at the start of the annual Dominican Day Parade in Manhattan, where the reporter sought de Blasio’s reaction to The Post’s front page story about his administration’s many meetings with lobbyists.

    [snip]In savaging Murdoch's News Corp, de Blasio got off a couple of rib-ticklers. First, he claimed that in contrast with the hated News Corp: “CNN and the major networks do not harbor a daily, hourly political agenda.” He then expressed nostalgia for the good old days, when liberals controlled all the major media outlets. He longed for: “A world without News Corp. A world with the kind of reporting–both sides–and a real devotion to objectivity that was the norm up to the 1970s in this country.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) is slamming conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch and Fox News, saying that “we would be a more unified country" without their influence. “If you could remove News Corp from the last 25 years of American history, we would be in an entirely different place," de Blasio told The Guardian last week before he spoke at an event in New Orleans, adding that he believes Murdoch is responsible for President Trump's election in 2016. De Blasio said if it weren't for Murdoch and Fox News, "we would not be suffering a lot of...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio used taxpayer resources to push his national political agenda — at one point even asking his staff to come up with a governmental excuse to justify a political trip to Washington, DC, emails show. In September 2015, Hizzoner was trying to build a coalition of labor and elected officials to support his Progressive Agenda — spending many hours each week peddling his income inequality platform to potential officials.

    Considering her record and documented history of poor ethical and moral fitness, it’s outrageous that Maxine Waters is up for chair of the ultra-powerful House Financial Services Committee, which has jurisdiction over the country’s banking system, economy, housing, and insurance. With Democrats taking control of the House of Representatives, come January the 14-term California congresswoman is expected to head the committee, which also has jurisdiction over monetary policy, international finance, and efforts to combat terrorist financing. Throughout her storied political career, Waters has been embroiled in numerous controversies, including abusing her power to enrich family members, getting a communist dictator...

The rapper can be seen saying in one clip posted on Instagram that while other Americans were “doing all this other bullshit” amid the midterm elections, he decided to temporarily camp out nearby the White House to smoke, saying: “F--- the president.” Snoop Dogg could be seen in other clips walking throughout what appears to be Lafayette Park while talking to fans with his blunt in hand. Snoop Dogg, who has been a...
