    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Firefighters came to the rescue of two police officers outnumbered in Mariners Harbor today, in a scene so chaotic that New York’s Bravest employed a truck-mounted deluge gun -- a water cannon -- to fend off the marauding group of teens. The scene unfolded at about 3:30 p.m. in front of 83 Harbor Rd., where a large group of teenagers had amassed to confront a teenage girl who lives in the residence. By the time it was over, two officers were sent to Richmond University Medical Center, West Brighton, for treatment, and nine teens ended up...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — They were caught in the middle of madness. Some grade school students were forced to walk a gauntlet of screaming “Occupy Wall Street” protesters just to get to school on Thursday.

    LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A coalition of labor unions and community groups have announced plans for a massive march in support of the “Occupy LA” encampment. More than 1,000 protesters are planning to shut down streets in downtown Los Angeles at 7 a.m. Thursday. They will meet at the Bank of America plaza on Hope Street and march to the corner of Figueroa and Fourth streets, where they plan to shut down the intersection and drop large banners from nearby overpasses. Demonstrators say rush hour drivers should expect serious delays and street closures in downtown Los Angeles near the 110...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Just a few hours after protesters learned they’d be able to stay in Zuccotti Park indefinitely, violence broke out as a group marched away from it. Protesters, apparently jubilant over being able to stay in the park after their furious cleanup efforts, took their brooms, flags and signs and started fanning out at around 7:30 a.m. 1010 WINS’ Steve Sandberg reported the protesters were saying things to the effect that now that they’d cleaned up the park, they were going to clean up Wall Street. A group of protesters headed south on Broadway toward the New...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Protesters who have camped out near Wall Street for two weeks marched on Friday on police headquarters in Manhattan over what they viewed as a heavy-handed police response to a previous demonstration. The Occupy Wall Street movement, whose members have vowed to stay through the winter, are protesting issues including the 2008 bank bailouts, foreclosures and high unemployment. More than 1,000 people marched past City Hall and arrived at a plaza outside police headquarters in the late afternoon. Some held banners criticizing police, while others chanted: "We are the 99 percent" and "The banks got bailed...

    New York police will increase security after receiving credible information that terrorists may be plotting an attack in the city around the Sept. 11 anniversary, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. "Terrorists view the anniversary as an opportunity to strike again," Bloomberg said today at a press conference. "In the next few days we should all keep our eyes wide open." New York police have stopped at least 13 terrorist attacks since 2001, Bloomberg said. While the killing of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden has helped reduce the threat, the mayor said, "The one thing we know is the terrorists have not...

    Representative Ron Paul (R-TX) has introduced a bill (HR-2613) to repeal the federal Gun Free School Zone Act. While many in the general public and the gun prohibition community will balk and ask questions like, “What does anyone need with a gun at a school,” knowledgeable rights supporters are wondering why it has taken so long. The Gun Free School Zone Act, or GFSZA for short, was originally passed by Congress back in 1990, but in 1995 the Supreme Court voided the law, ruling it (quite correctly) to be an unconstitutional overreach of federal power. Congress quickly passed a revised...

    HOME-grown extremists are actively considering launching terrorist attacks in Australia. The latest intelligence also suggests sporting venues, transport hubs and other places of mass gatherings have become the favoured targets of terrorist planners. "Clearly there are extremists now on our shores," Australian Federal Police counter-terrorism chief Steve Lancaster said. "There are people out there who genuinely think about doing bad things, or support terrorist acts overseas." In an interview with the Herald Sun to mark the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, Assistant Commissioner Lancaster also revealed: POLICE have secretly foiled several potential terrorist threats in Australia by disrupting...

    One man was stomped to death and another man nearly killed in a racist amusement called the "knock-out game," currently being played by black teenagers. The victims were both white, and that fact needs to be raised in our national conversation about race. PC disclaimer: only a tiny fraction of blacks play this game, and the vast majority of blacks do not condone violence of any kind. With that established, consider the facts: Half-brothers Elliott T. Murphy, 18, and Deonta "Fuss" Johnson, 16, were recently convicted of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder in the heinous stomping death of 61-year-old...

    A 16-year-old boy killed a pensioner with a single punch as he tried to put out fires during the London riots, a court heard. Onlookers pleaded ‘no, no, he’s an old man’ as a teenager wearing a T-shirt with the slogan ‘Robbers and Villains’ attacked. Richard Mannington Bowes, 68, was punched in the face as he tried to extinguish a blaze near his home in Ealing, West London. The force of the blow caused him to fall over smashing his head on the pavement. He died three days later on August 11 from the injuries he sustained. A 16-year-old boy...

    In the midst of riots, arson and looting, British citizens armed themselves … with aluminum bats. A Louisville Slugger is no match for a mob, but when your Socialist government makes it virtually impossible to own a gun, you grab whatever you can to protect yourself, your family, and property. Online sales of aluminum bats on Amazon.com increased by 6,000 percent during the violence, according to CNN. Most British police don’t carry guns. The situation is a far cry from the right to bear arms enshrined in the English Bill of Rights, a forerunner of our Second Amendment. Supreme Court...

    Police departments in several cities around the country are investigating what appear to be incidents of "flash mob"-generated violence, in which packs of dozens or even hundreds of youths appear seemingly out of nowhere to commit assaults, robberies and other crimes against innocent bystanders. The motive and circumstances surrounding the attacks that have resulted in numerous arrests around the country are being investigated -- and law enforcement officials in at least one city are looking into a possible racial component to the crimes. Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, who recently imposed a stricter curfew in response to the city's latest attack,...
