    Three suspects have been detained in connection with the sexual assault and murder of Amanda Blackburn, a pastor's pregnant wife who was shot during a home invasion robbery on Nov. 10.

    On Saturday evening, Dov Bergwerk arrived at the Avis branch on West 76th Street and Broadway. Accompanied by his wife Ruth, the Bergwerks were planning to join friends for dinner in Westchester. Mr. Bergwerk, a senior vice president and general corporate counsel at the Israeli pharmaceutical giant Teva, got out his driver’s license, reservation number and “Wizard” loyalty card – he’s rented from Avis dozens of times before – and anticipated the usual smooth transition into a nondescript mid-sized sedan. That’s when the trouble started. A reservation agent named Angelline declined to honor Mr. Bergwerk’s reservation, saying that it was...

    Something stinks at the University of Missouri. A reported incident of vandalism at Mizzou sparked university-wide protests, a boycott by the school’s 4-5 football team, and eventually the resignation of the university’s president and chancellor. There’s only one problem: no evidence of the alleged incident, in which a poop swastika on the wall of a dormitory restroom was reported, has ever been made publicly available. Did this incident occur as reported, or was it an immaculate defecation that formed the foundation of an unimaginable deception?

    If you are a hate crime hoaxer you can expect punishment in the form of a thorough lashing by a wet noodle followed by a severe chastisement. It is also known at the student-run newspaper of the University of California at Berkeley, the Daily Californian, as "restorative justice." Of course, had the culprit been revealed to have fit the narrative of the thousands of Berkeley High School students who walked out of classes in protest of a "hate crime" last Thursday, then the prescribed punishment would have been much more severe with no "safe safe" for his privacy.Here is Daily...

If the perpetrator of the anti-black hate message found late last Wednesday on a computer in the Black Student Union is white, blink once. Otherwise, blink twice. Actually, the powers that be have already blinked. By refusing to identify the race of the student who has since confessed to the act, they are practically conceding he is not a person of pallor.

    Does spray-painting “USA” on the side of a mosque constitute a hate crime? After two drunken teens were arraigned on vandalism charges Monday, Islamic leaders demanded the Sunday incident be classified as a hate crime. Though police in Burlington, Massachusetts are chalking it up to an alcohol-fueled prank by 18-year-olds Cameron Cappella and Derrik Demone, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan has signaled “additional charges” may be possible. How could “USA” be considered a hate crime? According to the Boston Globe, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Executive Director John Robbins “has said he believes the graffiti reflects an offensive view...

Mr. Roof, 21, already faces nine counts of murder in state court and could face the death penalty there. But Justice Department and F.B.I. officials have said the Charleston shooting was so horrific and racially motivated that the federal government must address it. The Justice Department had also been considering the seldom-used charge of killing someone while obstructing religious freedom, which is eligible for...

    Citing unnamed "federal law enforcement officials," The New York Times reports that the Justice Department probably will file federal hate crime charges against Dylann Roof in connection with last week's massacre at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston. Since Roof already faces nine murder charges in state court, where he will be subject to the death penalty if convicted, an additional federal prosecution seems gratuitous. It does not even offer the prospect of a more severe punishment. To the contrary, the maximum penalty Roof would face under federal law is life in prison, while there is a distinct possibility that...
