    There was just one fatal shooting in the whole of 2015 THE stake-out lasted a week, but it paid off in the end. The tireless police of Kagoshima, a sleepy city in the far south of the country, watched the unlocked car day and night. It was parked outside a supermarket, and contained a case of malt beer. Finally, a passing middle-aged man decided to help himself. Five policemen instantly pounced, nabbing one of the city’s few remaining law-breakers. Japan’s cluttered streets are not always pretty but they are remarkably safe. Crime rates have been falling for 13 years. The...

    Sadly, this type of disciplinary action is just as common as it is outrageous, as girls of color face many overlapping barriers to succeed in school, the workplace and even in society. National data shows that Black girls are 5.5 times more likely to be suspended from school than white girls, and that rate balloons to 8.5 times in my own state of New Jersey.

    ESPN's audience saw a decrease in conservative leaning viewers between 2015 and 2016, according to a new analysis. Deep Root Analytics conducted the study which found that ESPN viewership in 34 of 43 television markets saw a decrease in Republican viewers between the years that kick-started the presidential campaigns and election. Multiple channels in the ESPN family saw their viewership move to the left of the political spectrum. While ESPN and ESPN 2 saw just a 5 percent and 10 percent decrease in Republican viewers respectively, ESPN News viewership became 36 percent less Republican. The decrease in conservative viewers was...

    If faculty cannot bail out on and disparage diversity training, students don't stand a chance: Resistance is futile. "I exhort you not to attend this training," Paul Griffiths, then a professor at the Duke Divinity School urged his colleagues via the campus e-mail. "Don't lay waste your time by doing so." "It'll be, I predict with confidence, intellectually flaccid: there'll be bromides, clichés, and amen-corner rah-rahs in plenty. When (if) it gets beyond that, its illiberal roots and totalitarian tendencies will show. Events of this sort are definitively anti-intellectual. (Re)trainings of intellectuals by bureaucrats and apparatchiks have a long and...

Prosecutor Richard Wright QC told the court that the defendants have been split into three groups which are set to face three different trials early next year. Mr Wright QC said: “We are not going to serve all of the evidence for each defendant, there will be discrete cases served for each"

    Back in the in 40s and 50s, Americans could be blackballed, expelled or otherwise punished if they wouldn’t declare their national loyalty. The ideological fervor for conformity abated for decades, but has recently returned on our college campuses in the form of mandatory “diversity statements” by current and prospective faculty members. The difference is that instead of having to pledge support for America in its battle against communism, the new pledge is support to the “diversity” agenda in its battle against a color-blind nation where people are evaluated on their own merits rather than group membership. This recent paper by...

    Fort Worth police broke up a cockfighting event that ended in the arrests of three men, and 130 birds confiscated, but many had to be euthanized. Officers were called to a home in the 4300 block of Windowmere Street just after 11 a.m. Sunday. Police said 95 cocks, 17 hens and 18 chicks were seized. Seventeen recently-dead cocks were also found on the property. "We humanely euthanized 90 roosters, all who were in some state of suffering," Diane Covey with the Fort Worth Animal Shelter said via email. "Some of the roosters were still wearing gaffs, they were bleeding from...

    Haven’t gotten a chance to post this one, but it needs to be posted. From the Star Ledger: How every town in N.J. rates on income inequality Despite what Montclair wants you to believe, outside of the typical wealth enclaves like Saddle River, Far Hills, Deal and the like, Montclair ranks as pretty much the most unequal large town in New Jersey. There are few towns in NJ that show such a blatantly obvious amount of geographic segregation as Montclair, less than 1 mile separates some of the wealthiest residents of NJ from some of it’s poorest.

    The Kool Aid appears to still be on tap at the Pentagon and in the Beltway… I thought things would be different with this administration and with General Mad Dog Mattis at the helm. I still have faith in him, but my hope is dwindling. Every day, little bits and pieces of evidence are accumulating that the Pentagon PC insanity so prevalent and so destructive during the Obama years will roll on like a giant tsunami, until the US military is shattered into a thousand pieces. Today, State Senator Dr. Mark Green of Tennessee was forced to withdraw his nomination...

    Diversity....Quick. Make this woman Commander in Chief! Elizabeth Warren, U.S. Senator, probable future presidential candidate, fake Indian, and world-renowned military strategist wants you to know something. She’s done the research and determined what our military’s greatest strength is. Her findings will shock you. Our military’s greatest strength is not the gargantuan MOAB bomb we dropped on Afghanistan. In fact, our weaponry has nothing to do with it. That means it’s also not our nuclear arsenal, our combat gear, or our defensive countermeasures. It has nothing to do with the planet’s greatest collection of tanks, planes, and ships, either. Heck, it’s...

    A Canadian man's license plate can forget about living long and prospering. After receiving multiple complaints, Manitoba resident Nick Troller was forced to hand over his license plate that read "ASIMIL8," a reference to the Borg, a popular alien race from Star Trek. The Borg are villainous cybernetic organisms who assimilate other societies into their own. The phrases "we are the Borg" and "resistance is futile" are printed on the license plate's frame.

    Members of Minneapolis' Somali-American community say one of their main business districts -- often referred to as "The Somali Mall" -- is so ridden with crime, they no longer feel safe. Located at 24th Street East and home to dozens of businesses, more than 100 911 calls have been placed from the location since last October, according to police records. Problems include assaults, thefts, fights, and property damage. "I know a friend of mine being beaten up here badly and took his car," customer Asad Abdulahi recalled Monday. The owner of Juba Cafe, located across the street from the mall,...

    Authorities say around 12:30 p.m. on April 15, a 25-year-old man was assaulted and robbed after leaving a restaurant on B and Tioga Streets. The suspects punched and kicked the victim in the head until he was unconscious, police say. One of the attackers then went through the victim’s pockets, stealing his cell phone, wallet and money. The three suspects then fled the scene in an unknown direction. Police describe the first suspect as a black or Hispanic male, with a scruffy beard and a mustache. He was wearing a black skully hat, a black coat and black sweatpants. The...

    "Diversity statements" are used by universities in Oregon to weed out conservative and other right-leaning scholars at universities, a new report issued by the Oregon Association of Scholars (OAS) alleges. Per the report, the universities in Oregon (University of Oregon, Oregon State University, Portland State University, and Oregon Health and Science University) use a new kind of litmus test to single out conservative scholars: diversity statements. The report’s executive summary reads, as follows: Oregon colleges and universities have begun to impose requirements for prospective and current faculty to show their commitment to the partisan ideology of "diversity, equity, and inclusion."...
