  • Wary NYPD Cops Letting Minor Crimes Slide

    With cops on edge following the assassination of two patrol officers on a Brooklyn street, many officers have started turning a blind eye to some minor crimes, sources told The Post, while a union mandate that two patrol cars respond to all police calls has led to slower response times to non-emergencies. “I’m not writing any summonses. Do you think I’m going to stand there so someone can shoot me or hit me in the head with an ax?” One cop said Sunday, referring to the Dec. 20 slayings and another recent attack on the NYPD. “I’m concerned about my...

    In the past, I've advised against trying to impeach the reprobate-in-chief. It seemed futile and self-defeating. I've changed my mind. Whether or not it succeeds, it's the only way for Republicans to show that they're serious about stopping a president who's like a car without brakes barreling down a mountainside – smashing the Constitution and running over representative government. Congressional Republicans, led by the Indomitable John Boehner and Stalwart Mitch McConnell, are said to be considering such drastic measures as – have mercy! – suing Obama. Other suggested remedies include denying funding to programs which would oversee the amnesty and...

    Germany's biggest newspaper, Bild, was forced to climb down over the weekend after a highly critical and controversial comment piece which attacked Islam as a barrier to integration appeared in its Sunday sister paper. "I don't believe in God, but at the same time Christianity, Judaism or Buddhism don't bother me. Only Islam bothers me more and more," wrote Nicolaus Fest, vice editor-in-chief of the Bild am Sonntag newspaper in the editorial published on Sunday. Fest then laid out why Islam's "criminality," "murderous contempt" and "honour killings" did not belong in Germany, in comments which prompted a raft of hostility...

    For months, congressional investigators have battled a recalcitrant White House and Department of Justice over Operation Fast and Furious, a conspiracy that had the apparent goal of sending thousands of guns from American gun stores into Mexico. Recovery of the guns could be used as evidence to support the Obama administration’s 90-percent lie — and perhaps even serve a more nefarious goal. That deception seems to be collapsing, as the long suspected proof of other gunwalking operations was confirmed by Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News: An administration source would not describe the Tucson OCDTF case. However, CBS News has learned...

Thompson, whose criminal record stretches back to 1955, pleaded guilty Wednesday to taking about $1,400 from the Children's Medical Group in suburban Torrance. During the hearing, the amiable 5-foot-3 woman who ties her gray pigtails with white bows, thanked the judge for letting her serve her time in state prison rather than county jail.

Deputies said Torey Breedlove refused their commands to give up, and rammed their vehicles to escape, so they unleashed a hail of gunfire. Residents in the Alta Westgate apartments had bullets fly through walls and glass doors, they said this was unnecessary force. Two sources from within the Sheriff's department told WESH 2 that 133 shots were fired. One deputy alone fired 42 times and reloaded twice. The incident has caused a call for...

    A Russian man has been charged with killing 13 fellow train passengers by offering them tranquilliser-laced drinks before robbing them and leaving them to die, investigators said Wednesday. The 23-year-old attacker targeted well-dressed, tipsy male travellers on commuter trains and at rail stations in Moscow and the surrounding region, Moscow transport investigators said in a statement. He gave them drinks laced with a "huge dose of a strong tranquilliser" and waited for them to black out, then stole their money, mobile phones and bank cards before leaving them in an unconscious state, the statement said. "Thirteen people died at the...

This would be funny if it wasn't so outrageous. I gave up on the msm long ago, as it became glaringly obvious that ideology trumps objectivity every time. Sarah, keep it up, keep smiling through the insults and slurs, and 2012 will be here very soon.

A blogger unearthed the Dec. 21, 1997, endorsement in the Chicago Tribune and posted photographs of the praise for Ayers' book on Zombietime.com Saturday. Featured next to a smiling photograph of himself, then-State Senator Obama called Ayers' book, "A Kind and Just Parent: Children of the Juvenile Court," a "searing and timely account of the juvenile court system, and the courageous individuals who...

But the terror of having three guns thrust against his body as he was beaten, threatened with death and robbed on Thanksgiving Day spawned lingering emotional trauma. Hernandez's tale of terror is anything but unique in Durham. For a variety of reasons, many say, Hispanics are a lucrative, vulnerable and growing target for armed robbers. The Hispanics also say most of the robbers are black. Of 17 Hispanics asked, all said...

    There is terrorism in Baghdad but a criminal gang problem has also been plaguing our nation's capital. In an officially declared "crime emergency," black criminals had been robbing, assaulting, and even raping tourists in the National Mall area, where the Washington Monument and the World War II and Lincoln Memorials stand. This is an area that had been considered safe and "tourist-friendly." Three young black men were arrested for these crimes, but you could search in vain in the local media for any reference to their skin color. Instead, they were described as "D.C. youths" or just "five people." Stories...

Lane County Circuit Judge Gregory Foote also reminded 20-year-old Michael Scott Wrighthouse that Oregon law allows residents to use deadly force when they encounter a burglar inside an occupied dwelling. "They have guns in their houses because of people like you. They are prepared to blow you away. You will go out of there in a body bag, and nobody will care," Foote told Wrighthouse.

    Milwaukee police arrested 14,000 people, snagged 200 guns and grabbed 37 pounds of cocaine - all in just three months this summer. Despite such seemingly impressive numbers, crime continues to surge, fueled by what Police Chief Nannette Hegerty calls a "societal crisis" unfolding in neighborhoods gripped by unstable families, few jobs, rampant drug use, teen pregnancy, and topped with a significant dose of anger and hopelessness, the chief said. Faced with such challenges, police can't do it all, she said. "This is a problem bigger than law enforcement," Hegerty said Wednesday. "I think we have a societal crisis." More evidence...

The deputy, a five-year veteran of the force whose name was not released, was placed on leave while Thursday's shooting is investigated. Deputies carry both a Taser and a gun on their utility belts. The Taser, or stun gun, is similar in shape to the compact .40-caliber gun the deputy carried, sheriff's spokesman Scott Wilson said.

    MABLETON, Ga. (AP) -- Cobb County Police say a man clubbing a child with a rock was fatally shot by officers early today after he refused to drop the rock and attempted to strike another blow.

    PISMO BEACH, Calif. - A homeless man who entered a Denny's restaurant at lunch time muttering and looking dazed opened fire, gunning down two people, wounding a couple and then turning the gun on himself, police said. The gunman, holding a semiautomatic handgun in one hand and a revolver in the other, entered the restaurant Wednesday and began shooting within a few steps of the front door, sending patrons and workers fleeing to the restaurant's bathrooms and kitchen. The dead were identified as Frank Velasquez, 65, of Oceano, who was killed in front of his wife and 5-year-old great-granddaughter, and...

    CIUDAD JUAREZ, MEXICO At least eight inmates were killed and about 10 others injured on Saturday in a fight between gang members inside the municipal prison in the rough border city of Ciudad Juarez. The fight involved rival factions of a single gang, the "Aztecas," either because of internal leadership disputes, or for control of the drug trade, local media reported. In December, six inmates were stabbed or beaten to death at the same prison — which is located across the border from El Paso, Texas — in a clash between the Aztecas and a rival gang known as The...

    New technology and old-fashioned detective work enabled Natalee Holloway's family to slap the main suspect in her Aruba disappearance with legal papers in New York. "We'd been monitoring the blogs, Web sites and Internet chatter, and it all reached a crescendo Wednesday," he said. New York law allows one party to serve another with a lawsuit, even if none of them lives here — giving Natalee's parents an opportunity to force the teen to answer questions under oath and to pay, at least financially, for his alleged involvement in their daughter's disappearance. Balber drew up a complaint against Joran, 18,...
