    Verizon Communications Inc. reported a dozen cases of sabotaged cable lines and warned of delays in repairs and customer service on the second day of a strike involving about 45,000 employees. The telecommunications company said there have been 12 acts of sabotage to telephone lines and to Internet and television services in Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, and New York since the strike began. Fiber-optic lines were intentionally cut in Tewksbury and several other municipalities on the East Coast, the company said.

    Pittsburg Tribune-Review ^ | 4/21/2010 | Trapped_in_LA
    An Allegheny County judge Tuesday acquitted a former Pittsburgh police sergeant of an assault charge. Eugene Hlavac, 43, slumped in his courtroom chair, and a supporter seated behind him clapped when Common Pleas Judge Thomas Flaherty announced the verdict that ended a two-day, non-jury trail. "I've asserted that I always have been an innocent man. I am an innocent man," Hlavac said outside the courtroom. "I can't understand how there's any way I will ever, ever regain my reputation, in spite of the fact that I'm completely innocent."

    A Michigan man who was aboard Northwest Airlines Flight 253 says he witnessed Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab trying to board the plane in Amsterdam without a passport, and believes at least one other person from the flight was arrested on Friday at Detroit Metro Airport. Kurt Haskell of Newport, Mich., who posted an earlier comment about his experience, talked exclusively with MLive.com and confirmed he was on the flight by sending a picture of his boarding pass. He and his wife, Lori, were returning from a safari in Uganda when they boarded the NWA flight on Friday. Kurt HaskellLori and...

    The Obama administration has proposed the possible pull out of all 40 F-16s from Misawa AB to the government of Japan. The discussion are supposed to have taken place back in April and have only now been released. The move could possibly start at the end of the year with the agreement of the new incoming administration of Democratic Party of Japanese leader Yukio Hatoyama. As part of the same strategic review plan the US has also told Japan that they may also remove 50 or so F-15s from its base in Kadena, Okinawa. Both proposals are pending as the...

    NewsBusters ^ | September 7, 2009 (23:49 PM ET) | Tom Blumer
    The "resignation" shortly after midnight on Sunday morning of President Obama's "green jobs czar" Van Jones has generally been seen as a convenient holiday weekend move. By Friday, after White House Secretary Robert Gibbs would only say that he still was a part of the administration, it was obvious that Jones's resignation was only a matter of time. The 9/11 truther and other evidence accumulated by Glenn Beck, Gateway Pundit, and others was simply overwhelming. But it seems to me that it would have been more convenient had the White House waited until early Sunday afternoon to announce Jones's resignation....

    Predictably, the push has begun to get a Kennedy into the Senate seat held for lo those many years by Ted Kennedy. The Kennedys favorite newspaper - the Boston Globe - all but annointed Joe in a news story by Frank Phillips that also handily reminded everybody that the seat is, after all, the permanent property of the Kennedy family. Said Philips: [Snip] "All eyes now are on Joseph P. Kennedy II, the former US representative, with family members and political allies expecting him to make a decision very shortly on whether to enter the Democratic primary. "No other Kennedy...

    When Curtis Williams took the field for the Huskies' 2000 season opener, the University of Washington's media guide described him like this: Senior, strong safety, 5-foot-10, 200 pounds. Named, in 1999, the team's best hitter. Led team in solo tackles. Went to high school in Fresno, Calif., where he was a top recruit. The seventh of eight kids. Pursuing a degree in American ethnic studies. Here's what the media guide didn't say: When Williams played against Idaho, he had a warrant out for his arrest. He'd been arrested every year he was here: 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000. He was...

    No other topics I write about so consistently provoke passionate personal response as those dealing with systemic discrimination against men. When, for example, I point out double standards for boys and girls in the health care system, or expose the use of bogus statistics around domestic violence, my inbox fills with male gratitude simply for acknowledging an obvious fact: Our culture is profoundly misandric.Of the myriad forms of discrimination men cite, one looms over the rest: The egregious treatment meted out to fathers in the throes of contested child custody following the "no-fault" divorces most of them did not...

    He was much larger than me and had a beefy football-player build and short dark hair -- the bouncer type. He was going to get physical if I objected. He was ready to push as we walked quickly past the long row of tables covered with guns and ammunition, past the woman collecting money for admission. Talk to him, I said to myself. Talk to him. I kept telling him I didn't work for the newspapers as he herded me to the exit. "No pictures," he kept repeating. "No pictures," he insisted one last time as he opened the heavy...

    The Supreme Court clamped down Thursday on defendants who claim they were coerced into breaking the law. Those defendants, not prosecutors, have the burden of proving in trials that they committed crimes only under duress. Although the ruling involves federal prosecutions, it could lead states to change their laws. The court's liberals were split in the 7-2 ruling against a Texas woman who claimed her abusive boyfriend forced her to illegally buy him guns while his accomplices held her children hostage. Government lawyers argued that a ruling for Keisha Dixon would help drug carriers and others avoid prison, claiming they...
  • The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) undermines the American family and American society.

    Yahoo News Letters to elected officials ^ | July 4, 2005 | Marc Snider
    The VAWA is much more than a huge federal distribution of funds used to help prevent violence against women. Those who commit violent acts, no matter whether in the context of an intimate relationship or against strangers, deserve to be severely punished and must be stopped from offending again. The Violence Against Women Act, however, does far more than this and is in reality the taxpayer funding of a nationwide movement of radical individuals who do everything in their power to attack American fatherhood. Don't believe those in power who speak of wholesale numbers of fathers who don't want to...

    Sunday, June 19, 2005 Domestic abuse law is dealt a setback By GREGORY D. KESICH, Portland Press Herald Writer A federal judge in Portland has raised doubts about the U.S. attorney's ability to use gun laws to combat domestic violence in Maine. U.S. District Court Judge D. Brock Hornby dismissed the federal felony indictment last week of a Lewiston man who was facing a prison sentence on the charge of possessing a gun after being convicted of a misdemeanor domestic assault crime. Hornby ruled that John Frechette did not knowingly waive his right to a jury trial in 1996, when...

    What do you get when you mix equal parts of gender myth, a casual disregard of Constitutional protections, and old fashioned political pork? VAWA – the Violence Against Women Act -- that’s what. For the past decade, Americans have been subjected to the relentless message, There’s no excuse for domestic violence against a woman. OK, but what about Piper Rountree who was convicted six weeks ago for the ambush-slaying of her former husband, University of Richmond professor Frederic Jablin? Are cases of female-on-male violence so rare as to be an amusing oddity in the newspaper obituary columns? Here’s the shocker:...

    "IN SEDUCTION, the rapist often bothers to buy a bottle of wine," proclaimed radical feminist Andrea Dworkin in 1976. If you're a woman born 20 years ago, you probably don't even recognize Dworkin's name. Yet, there's a good chance you've had some seriously frustrating dates with her unwitting progeny: the guy who waits until date three or four—not to grab you, throw you up against the wall and suck face—but to politely inquire, "May I kiss you?" Equal pay for equal work? It's a beautiful thing. Equal opportunity? Thrilled to have it. We women owe an enormous debt to Susan...

    Governor Bill Richardson said today that the death of sixteen year old Marissa Mathy-Zweifler, allegedly at the hands of a sex offender on probation, points out what he calls the horrendous failure of our criminal justice system to deal with violent sexual offenders. "Make no mistake," said the governor. "I am committed to making effective prevention, prosecution and long-term treatment and monitoring of violent sex offenders a reality in New Mexico." The governor wants more treatment, including doubling the 54 beds now available for dangerous sex offenders in the state penitentiary system. He says New Mexico has puny probation and...

    Domestic violence - one safe place? Officer Jim Cooper has become a familiar face at the shelter. Although he comes by to check on all the women, he is particularly attentive to one: A 35-year-old Albanian woman, Luljeta. For Cooper, she has become something of a personal crusade. Luljeta's husband started beating her early in their eight-year marriage. The cables he used left scars on her back. After the sixth year he also began bringing other women into their home. Luljeta ran away twice, but each time her husband found her and brought her back. This time he has not...
