Arnaout, 39, was arrested April 30. He had been under...

    Moscow, April 13, Interfax - A prompt decision needs to be made on the burial of the remains of Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin and on the transfer of the remains of Joseph Stalin to Georgia, Ramzan Kadyrov, the head of Chechnya, said.

    Video at link. A Georgia sheriff, whose politically incorrect welcome sign went viral in 2015, has a new, bold message for visitors to his county. “Our citizens have concealed weapons,” the welcome sign reads in part. “If you kill someone, we might kill you back.” But it doesn’t stop there. “Enjoy your stay!” the sign added. “We have ONE jail and 356 cemeteries.” Jolley's previous sign in 2015 defended the American flag and Christmas. He paid $553 for the sign out of his own pocket.

    Facebook COBB COUNTY, Ga. - The frights are supposed to end at Six Flags Over Georgia once you get off the rides. That wasn’t the case for Joshua Martin on July 3, 2007. The 19-year-old Marietta kid was with his brother and their friend just outside the park when several gang members descended upon them at a bus station 200 feet from the amusement park’s property line. It was a flurry of brass-knuckled punches and kicks. Martin had a shoe print embossed on his forehead when he was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital from Austell. He was in a coma...

    When it comes to America’s response to gun crime, one Georgia town has been thinking outside the box since 1982, when its leaders passed a law requiring it citizens to own a firearm. The Kennesaw, Georgia, law states that “every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm,” according to CNN, and was reportedly passed as a deterrent to crime. “It was meant to be kind of a crime deterrent,” Kennesaw Police Lt. Craig Graydon, a 30-year law enforcement veteran, told CNN. “It was also more or less a political statement because the city...

    Georgia lawmakers voted to nix a tax benefit for Atlanta-based Delta as part of a broader tax package approved Thursday, following the airline's decision to sever ties with the National Rifle Association. The bill -- which includes a sweeping income tax cut -- cleared the state House on an overwhelming 135-24 vote, after being approved in the state Senate on a 44-10 vote. It now heads to the governor's desk. The final version dropped an earlier amendment that would have renewed a jet fuel tax exemption worth $50 million that was taken off the books in 2015. “Businesses have every...
