    James Herard came from a broken home. He was sexually abused by a family friend, and his mother inflicted forms of corporal punishment that some would consider abusive, a Broward jury was told Tuesday. And when Herard shot to kill during a string of violent robberies in 2008, it excited him. "I got a deranged mind," Herard said during an interview with detectives in late 2008. "It's like sex to me. I enjoyed it."

    Democrat says he's heard Pelosi won't run again for Speaker By Michael O'Brien - 10/19/10 01:47 PM ET A House Democratic lawmaker said late last week that he'd heard Nancy Pelosi wouldn't seek another term as Speaker. Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.) said that not only would he not back Pelosi (D-Calif.) for Speaker again, but also that he'd heard she would not seek another term in that position. "From what we're hearing, she's probably not going to run for Speaker again," McIntyre told WWAY-TV in North Carolina. "And if she does, I'm confident she's going to have opposition, and I...

Even though the cap appears to be holding today, the devastation of 87 days of spewing oil will have repercussions for the entire U.S. and for years to come. Highlights of the interviews: One man talks about...

    GUINSAUGON, Philippines - High-tech gear detected "signs of life" Monday at the site of an elementary school buried under mud that swept down a hillside soaked by rain in the eastern Philippines, the provincial governor said. Sounds of scratching and a rhythmic tapping were picked up by seismic sensors and sound-detection gear brought in by U.S. and Malaysian forces, said South Leyte Gov. Rosette Lerias. Generator-powered lights were set up to allow teams of rescue workers to dig through the sludge during the night. "To me, that's more than enough reason to smile and be happy," Lerias said. "The adrenaline...

At least one local young man, Adrian Marriott, thought to...

    Senator Daniel Akaka (D-HI) has introduced a bill called the Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act of 2005, S.147. Akaka wants to extend the government's policy of self-governance and self-determination to Native Hawaiians. He, and fellow Hawaiian Senator Inouye intend to do this by creating a race-based and racially separate government for Native Hawaiians. Under S. 147 Native Hawaiians would be under the federal Indian law system and would be designated as a "tribe." This new race-based government would have jurisdiction over 20 percent of Hawaii's citizens as well as 400,000 citizens nationwide. This would be the first time in our...

    'I heard that Britain is the best place for us to go now. It doesn't treat refugees like animals' (Filed: 15/02/2004) Passions are running high in Holland as it prepares to expel 26,000 immigrants. But should the UK be following its example? David Harrison and Damien McElroy report. "It is our shame," said William Van Bekkam, a retired headmaster standing outside Amsterdam's Beinkorf Department Store, surveying the rough sleepers in the city's main square. "We gave these people false hope but now they don't have a future here," he said. "We offered our hospitality but didn't think about what the...
