    Iran's supreme leader was in a supremely sarcastic mood Tuesday as he gave a speech to a sea of military officials. His target: Trump's first foreign policy moves. “We actually thank this new president! We thank him, because he made it easier for us to reveal the real face of the United States,” said Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, according to a transcript posted on his official website. “… Now, with everything he is doing — handcuffing a child as young as 5 at an airport — he is showing the reality of American human rights.” While Khamenei's intended point about the...

    Two days ago Yahoo News claimed a 5-Year-Old American citizen was handcuffed at the Dulles Airport for hours.    The Independent in the UK made the same unfounded accusation.  The accusation flew around the Internet. I suspected fake news.  Let us see the pictures of the handcuffed 5 year old. Everyone has phones and cameras today. We have seen plenty of examples of fake accusations. It did not take me long.  It was fake news. Snopes found a picture that was used in this accusation, that was from 2015. A 5-Year-old was detained for four hours at Dulles,...

    (Video at link)A state Republican party leader brought a pair of handcuffs to an MSNBC interview Thursday, arguing Hillary Clinton could appear in them on inauguration day. Dallas Woodhouse, executive director of North Carolina’s GOP, argued Republicans in his state don't have a "suppression vote problem" but Clinton’s supporters “have a depression problem." "The Democrats have a depression problem. You know why? It’s very simple. Their candidate, if elected, could have these on election day," he said, holding up the handcuffs. “Hillary Clinton inauguration jewelry,” Woodhouse added. “Is this the kind of rhetoric you want to be seeing five days...

    The FBI seized four servers from the State Department building a few weeks ago as part of the investigation into classified material improperly stored on Hillary Clinton’s secret email server, particularly the Top Secret documents that have been discovered in her email trove. This revelation comes from Bill Gertz at the Washington Free Beacon, citing anonymous sources familiar with the investigation. Gertz notes that the State Department referred questions about the seized servers to the FBI, which declined to comment on the matter. It would be interesting to know exactly what the FBI computer forensics team is looking for on...

    The abortion lobby has taken note of Pro-Life Action League’s mailer project and doesn’t like it. On January 22, the 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade decision, the League sent a mailer to every abortion clinic in the U.S. Inside was a pair of plastic handcuffs, a photo of Oklahoma City abortionist Naresh Patel being arrested last month, and a note asking, “Could you be next?” The note encouraged abortion workers to get out of the business for their own good and included PLAL’s Eric Scheidler’s personal cell phone number. The list of abortionists and workers who...

    VALPARAISO — A 12-year-old faces two counts of resisting law enforcement for his alleged actions when he refused to clean up spilled milk in the Ben Franklin Middle School cafeteria. A police officer was helping supervise the lunch period on Tuesday, because both the principal and assistant principal were in a meeting, and the boy got into a confrontation with a school staff member. After refusing to wipe up the mess, according to the police report, the sixth-grader refused to sit and wait for the other students to return to class so the staff member could deal with him individually....

    Juvenile Department Director Tim Loewen and Detention Center Director Scott Paasch explained that youths are held pre-trial only when a judge feels they constitute a flight risk or pose a danger to themselves or others. By virtue of being in the detention center, they argued, the youths present a danger that needs to be rectified by handcuffing them while they interact with the public in the hallways. Lawrence said such precautions should be applied far more selectively. She said shackling juveniles can prove psychologically damaging, making youthful offenders feel like hardened criminals or kindling repressed memories of abuse.

    HELP - I'm handcuffed and I can't get up! A Connecticut hubby called cops on his estranged wife after she handcuffed herself to him and bit him in a bizarre confrontation captured on a 911 tape. "My wife has handcuffed me - she's attacking me," Robert Drawbough moaned to an emergency dispatcher in suburban Fairfield. "Please come and help me get out of here." Drawbough complained to cops that he woke up to find his wife had snapped the 'cuffs on both of them to stop him from bolting. He told the puzzled dispatcher he couldn't keep Helen Sun, 37,...

    Many Republicans were sharply affected by last November's disastrous election and have become more pragmatic about their priorities. Mr. Giuliani, while adhering to his positions, insists he is a strict constitutionalist and will appoint judges who are the same. While gun control is just one of the hot-button issues that may present a problem for Mr. Giuliani during the Republican primary campaign, there is an overriding issue that might make this and other social issues moot — the war on terror. I briefly met Mr. Giuliani in 2004 at a Harvard Club luncheon honoring the posthumous publication of William E....
  • Deputy's gun used in rape, records show

    Two days before a King County deputy sheriff's live-in lover allegedly shot and killed a convenience-store clerk, he used the deputy's handcuffs and gun to rape a man in their Kenmore home while the cop slept upstairs, according to police reports. The incident in August is one of many revelations regarding King County Sheriff's Deputy Ferenc Zana's disastrous affair with a mentally ill felon. They were contained in more than 900 pages of documents the Sheriff's Office was forced to produce Monday under a court order obtained by the Seattle P-I.
  • Panel reduces officer's suspension for quitting work early to have sex

    A Seattle police officer called to a fight between a man and a woman made no arrests and took no report, instead quitting his shift early to take the woman involved to his place for sex. After an investigation prompted by the woman's fiancé, Officer Lance Basney was suspended for 30 days without pay. But this week, Basney succeeded in appealing that discipline before the city's Public Safety Civil Service Commission; his punishment was reduced to five days. Still, an attorney for the Police Department was pleased, saying the finding supports the department's position that even off-duty conduct matters. "We're...

    Several of my recent threads / comments have related to a DUI arrest I recently had. I will not defend that. One of the more interesting subjects which came up when I was in jail was whether you can be arrested for "drunk in public" when you are on your own property. My position is that this should not be possible. I like to sit out on my front porch, have a drink or three, and study my shubbery. I am not driving or doing anything else which I consider to be wrong. The overwhelming consensus among my cell-mates is...
