(KATU) – The mother of a Portland activist killed over the weekend in a crash urges mourners not to leave messages on a building near the crash site and to stop talking publicly about the case.

Surrounded by graffiti left behind following her son’s death, Laura urged people to stop leaving messages and to stop speculating on the internet about what happened. Laura said, “I...

    BALTIMORE, Md. — A former Episcopal bishop who killed a cyclist in 2014 will be released from jail in May. According to officials, Heather Cook will be released from jail and placed on probation until October 2022, meeting regularly with an agent and being supervised. That means Cook will have served 3 1/2 years of her seven-year sentence after she was convicted of killing bicyclist Thomas Palermo on Dec. 27, 2014. At the time, Cook was the second ranking official in the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland. Cook pleaded guilty in September 2015 to auto manslaughter, driving while intoxicated, driving while...

    Beto O’Rourke, with widespread backing, is considering running for president in 2020. If Democrats want to lose, he absolutely should. Nothing has been learned from Hillary Clinton, the two-time heiress apparent who, in 2016, had the support of nearly every mainstream media outlet, who entered the final stretch of her last race with a $449 million war chest (compared with Trump’s $163 million), who led in nearly every national poll, and who was roundly depicted as the rational adult tolerating a villainous bozo. Just as Hillary has taken that humiliating defeat as a sign to mull yet a third run,

    Michael MacDonald was riding his bicycle near Los Angeles’ Miracle Mile when he was allegedly struck by a honking Mercedes driver who fled the scene in March of 2015.

He was hospitalized with minor injuries, including abrasions and leg pain. Although a witness in another car was able to follow the Mercedes and jot down the license plate number, no arrests were made and no charges were ever filed.

    Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Larua Kiessling said, from the bench, she received many letters about the case expressing concern about the “current political climate” where President Trump has been “harshly critical of illegal immigration and of Mexico in particular,” the Capital Gazette reported. The judge said it is “reasonable to conclude” that the defendant, Martin Martinez-Ballinas, would flee the scene out of fear of being deported. “I’m not going to sentence based on the political environment,” Keissling told the courtroom. Maryland defense attorney Kush Arora told Breitbart Texas that Martinez-Ballinas’s fear does not matter as to guilt or...
