    SAN FRANCISCO – San Francisco's Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to pay $13.1 million to a man found to have been framed by city police in a murder case. Jamal Trulove, an aspiring actor and hip-hop artist, spent more than eight years behind bars after being sentenced to life in prison in 2010 in connection with the 2007 slaying of a friend and neighbor of his at a city housing project. Trulove was kept in prisons hundreds of miles away from his family and was also stabbed, Alex Reisman, one of his lawyers, told the Associated Press. “He endured...

    Dani Rodrik has just returned from Turkey, shunned while defending his father-in-law, the main defendant in the military coup plot case. The Harvard professor explains his take. IN DECEMBER I traveled to Turkey with my wife and young son, as we do every year during winter break. This time, though, we had more than visiting family and friends in mind. We were on a mission to demonstrate that what many have called the trial of the century in Turkey is in fact a sham built on fabricated evidence. Nearly two hundred Turkish military officers stand accused of having plotted a...

    Khobar Towers June 23, 2006 The Wall Street Journal Louis J. Freeh Ten years ago this Sunday, acting under direct orders from senior Iranian government leaders, the Saudi Hezbollah detonated a 25,000-pound TNT bomb that killed 19 U.S. airmen in their dormitory at Khobar Towers in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. The blast wave destroyed Building 131 and grievously wounded hundreds of additional Air Force personnel. It also killed an unknown number of Saudi civilians in a nearby park. The 19 Americans murdered were members of the 4404th Wing, who were risking their lives to enforce the no-fly zone over southern Iraq....

    Federal prosecutors plan to dismiss charges against 28 defendants in drug cases because an FBI agent may have been involved in tampering with evidence including firearms and narcotics. The FBI is in the process of investigating the alleged misconduct, according to court papers in the matter. At a court hearing Thursday for four of the defendants, a federal judge said he will review the government's plan to dismiss the cases without prejudice, which leaves the door open for the government to refile charges at a later date. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia says it is conducting...

    A former CBS News reporter who quit the network over claims it kills stories that put President Obama in a bad light says she was spied on by a “government-related entity” that planted classified documents on her computer. In her new memoir, Sharyl Attkisson says a source who arranged to have her laptop checked for spyware in 2013 was “shocked” and “flabbergasted” at what the analysis revealed. “This is outrageous. Worse than anything Nixon ever did. I wouldn’t have believed something like this could happen in the United States of America,” Attkisson quotes the source saying. She speculates that the...

    The House Ethics Committee is launching a full-tilt investigation of Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota. The committee announced on Friday it had received a referral from the Office of Congressional Ethics, an independent investigative body, and said in a brief statement that it would formally investigate the one-time Republican presidential candidate. A lawyer for Bachmann had previously acknowledged the investigation by the OCE and said that Bachmann was cooperating. That probe is focused in part on her short-lived presidential bid.

    Daily News ^ | October 13th 2011 | John Marzulli
    A former NYPD narcotics detective snared in a corruption scandal testified it was common practice to fabricate drug charges against innocent people to meet arrest quotas. The bombshell testimony from Stephen Anderson is the first public account of the twisted culture behind the false arrests in the Brooklyn South and Queens narc squads, which led to the arrests of eight cops and a massive shakeup. Anderson, testifying under a cooperation agreement with prosecutors, was busted for planting cocaine, a practice known as "flaking," on four men in a Queens bar in 2008 to help out fellow cop Henry Tavarez, whose...

    A man 13 years into a prison sentence for murder is adamant that he is innocent. Now he's finally convincing others to believe him. When Kerry Porter said he didn't kill Tyrone Camp in December of 1996, the jury didn't believe him. He was sentenced to 60 years in prison and even failed to win an appeal. That's until a police interview conducted more than a year ago surfaced and drastically changed his case. Commonwealth's Attorney David Stengel says, "We are moving in the direction of clearing Mr. Porter, but we are not there yet." It was the March 2010...

They both pushed and pulled without any success whatsoever. Finally, in desperation, Charlie undid the toilet seat bolts. Lucy wrapped...

    A handyman from east London who ruined a school caretaker's life by planting child pornography on his computer is facing jail for perverting the course of justice. Neil Weiner launched the "wickedly evil and vile plot" hoping to get Eddie Thompson sacked so that he could be promoted. He sent police a CD containing 177 indecent images of children saying they had come from Mr Thompson's laptop, the Old Bailey heard. A further 235 pictures were later found on the computer and the caretaker was arrested in 2006. He told police he had been set up by colleagues who did...

    ACORN is now well-known across America, but what most Americans know about it is wrong. Most mainstream journalism organizations have been negligent by repeating, rather than fact-checking, spurious allegations. (November 25, 2009) -- (Commentary) A pimp and a prostitute walk into an office. It sounds like the beginning of a joke, but it wasn’t for ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. Until recently, ACORN, the largest community organizing group in the country, was well known primarily among liberal activists and the low-income people it has organized since it began in Little Rock in 1970. By mobilizing poor...

    EL PASO, Texas (AP) -- A former U.S. Border Patrol agent who was convicted of shooting a drug smuggling suspect and then lying about it was beaten by fellow inmates in prison, his relatives and a congressman said Tuesday. Prison officials did not immediately confirm that Ignacio Ramos had been attacked. The convictions of Ramos and fellow former agent Jose Alonso Compean sparked outcry from critics who argued that the men were merely doing their job defending the border against criminals. U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., a vocal supporter of the agents and opponent of illegal immigration, criticized the Bush...
