    A 61-year-old man was shot to death by police while his wife was handcuffed in another room during a drug raid on the wrong house. Police admitted their mistake, saying faulty information from a drug informant contributed to the death of John Adams Wednesday night. They intended to raid the home next door. [snip] The two officers, 25-year-old Kyle Shedran and 24-year-old Greg Day, were placed on administrative leave with pay. “We did the best surveillance we could do, and a mistake was made,” Lebanon Police Chief Billy Weeks said. “It’s a very severe mistake, a costly mistake. It makes...
  • Most Favor Stricter Regulation of Coal Plant Emissions But Recognize Energy Will Cost More

    The Obama administration has proposed tighter restrictions on carbon dioxide emissions which critics believe will discourage construction of new coal power plants. Several states that rely heavily on the coal industry are challenging the new rules, but a majority of voters nationwide favor them. Most recognize, however, that the new rules will drive up energy costs. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters shows that 53% favor new environmental regulations that place stricter limits on carbon dioxide emissions from new power plants. Twenty-nine percent (29%) oppose the new regulations, and 18% are not sure about them.

    Two people are facing criminal charges after a “party game” gone wrong ended in a man’s death. Authorities said Jimmy Mounts, 27, of Romeoville, was at a garage party in the 2000 block of Waterford in Crest Hill Sept. 25 when he starting offering other guests $5 if they could take a punch from 21-year-old Tiffany Startz, of Joliet. John A. Powell, 25, who was 5-foot-8 and weighed 140 pounds, took Mounts’ wager and stood before the 5-foot-5, 142-pound Startz, police said. Witnesses told police Startz swung and hit Powell once in the face. He collected his money from Mounts...
  • Jimmy Carter’s Kennedy Problem

    The Bulletin ^ | 10/10/2010 | Dr. Paul Kengor
    I recently wrote about President Carter’s “superiority” complex, where I objected to the former president’s rather conceited claim of “superior” ex-presidential service, as measured (by himself) against other ex-presidents. Yet, there’s an important area where I’d like to defend President Carter. Mr. Carter hasn’t had many defenders on this score, given that he dared to criticize a political saint to Democrats, the late senator Ted Kennedy. In recent comments to CBS’s Leslie Stahl, Mr. Carter blasted Kennedy, blaming him for the Carter administration’s inability to pass a national “health plan.” Mr. Carter described Kennedy as “irresponsible and abusive.” “The fact...

    Among states, California arguably has the most to gain from an overhaul of its health care system: it has the greatest number of uninsured residents in the country and the largest public insurance program for the poor, which struggles to serve 6.5 million people while reimbursing doctors at one of the nation's lowest rates. Stuck between the increasingly uncertain future of national reform, a looming $20 billion state budget deficit, and a health care system that is limping along and likely to face even greater demand in the coming years, Californians are frustrated. Doctors, patients, politicians and researchers all agree...

    LEFT LANE DRIVERS of AMERICA “If you’re not a Left Lane Driver then get out of the Left Lane!” Traffic has become increasingly congested and tempers flare as slower drivers occupy what has been historically referred to as the “fast lane”. It’s time to get that Left Lane back! It is our considered opinion that not only will traffic move more smoothly and more quickly once the Left Lane is used in the way it has been designed but also headaches, frustration, bad tempers and road rage will all be greatly reduced when this pressure valve is released.

    To understand any political ideology, one must understand what most animates it. For the Left, it is hatred of inequality. As noted in a previous column, the Left hates inequality even more than it hates evil. Or perhaps more accurately, for the Left, inequality is the ultimate evil. If ever there were a smoking gun as to what animates most leftists, the many expressions of the need for judges to favor "the little guy" in their courtroom constitute that smoking gun. The prime Democratic objection to confirming Judge Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court was that he does not rule...

    WASHINGTON (CNS) -- The president of the U.S. bishops blasted a recent episode of the cable television comedy "South Park" that he said showed Mary in "a tasteless and ugly fashion."In a Dec. 14 letter to Tom Freston, co-president and chief operating officer of Viacom International, parent company of Comedy Central, the cable channel that shows "South Park," Bishop William S. Skylstad of Spokane, Wash., said the channel showed "extreme insensitivity" in choosing to show the episode.The episode, which first was shown Dec. 7 and had repeat showings in the week following, was titled "Bloody Mary."

    For the past two years, the old-line media has been more than willing to help broadcast the allegations made by the anti-war crowd that "Bush lied, soldiers died." However, no matter how many times the likes of Michael Moore and Cindy Sheehan have made this allegation, they've never been able to make it stick. The only thing they've proven thus far is that they hold a twisted hatred of this country and feel consumed with resentment toward America's economic, military and political superiority. It turns out that it's not George Bush or Dick Cheney who has been lying to the...

    September 9, 2005 -- IN her "Letter from New York," published in The Washington Post, Tina Brown yesterday determined there was a "scent of insurrection" in the air here in the Big Apple in the wake of Hurricane Katrina — a spirit of revolution she seems to have discerned primarily at a screening of a 9/11 documentary at the swanky Bryant Park Hotel. "The needless torment of New Orleans has reignited the dormant passions of the election," quoth our Tina, who has taken it upon herself to bring the Word from this city's elite to the political elite in Washington....

    It’s bad enough that we spend so much of our time spewing hatred towards one another over politics, the one thing we all used to agree to hate together. The least we can do is get the terminology right for heavens sake… I recently heard a young college moron [A person of mild mental retardation having a mental age of from 7 to 12 years and generally having communication and social skills enabling some degree of academic or vocational education. The term belongs to a classification system no longer in use and is now considered offensive, but accurate.] refer to...

    The key to a successful burglary? Try the French police Sat Nov 13, 3:06 PM ET PARIS (AFP) - A swindler posing as the owner of a jewelery store outside Paris managed to steal a set of luxury pens and watches with the unwitting help of local police and a locksmith, police said on Saturday. Claiming to be the owner of a jewelery store a few blocks away, a 30-year-old man called in at the police station in Enghien-les-Bains, a small town northwest of Paris, at around midnight on Saturday last week. The man, identified only as Yves, told the...

    A little background: this week, our campus Advocates for Conservative Thought sponsored a "Conservative Awareness Week" (I personally thought we should stick with the original title, "Conservative Coming-Out Week," but since the gay/lesbian club at the University of Miami is extremely well-funded and possibly backed by the president herself, it's not really a good idea to invoke their wrath unless you have no choice"). Each day had a different theme (i.e., pro-life, family, guns, etc.) and a couple of days we had guest speakers on the various topics.(Tonight, incidently, we had Doug Bandow of the CATO Institute speak on "Free...

    Well! If you have never seen a flock of enraged birders, you don't know what danger is. These people don't just watch pewits and tweety-birds, they're into raptors, too falcons, eagles ... they know how to swoop and strike. If we find Rove beaten to a pulp with binoculars, it will be no surprise. How could he ignore the immemorial warning, "Beware the wrath of the birding legions!' Back to business. There's no way to keep up with the Bush administration's assaults on the environment, they're just endless. Most notable lately was the decision to let mercury pollution, which is...

    A survey of Ithaca residents to the capture of Saddam Hussein revealed the following reactions: "When are they going to capture Dicky C. and 'W?' This was a media event. The Iraqi people were resigned the the fact that Saddam is not coming back. They just want the Americans to leave. I am sure they were happy to get rid of him, but they just want electricity. I would like to see the billions of dollars he escaped with used to rebuild the county and not our $87 billion." L -- David McFarren "It made me sad. To me, it's...

Lest we forget, starting this week, each week's issue will have one news brief about police corruption in the drug war. It won't be difficult to find material. But it may be difficult to beat this week's nominee, the Detroit Police Department, for the sheer size of the corruption. On October 10, a federal grand jury indicted nine people, including a Detroit police officer, a Detroit police civilian employee and a Michigan State Police officer on charges of stealing a whopping 222 pounds of...

    European Union foreign ministers will try to tone down disagreements with the United States over Iraq and the International Criminal Court (ICC) on Saturday - the second day of their informal meeting in the Danish port of Elsinore. They are expected to call again on Iraq to re-admit United Nations weapons inspectors, while agreeing with Washington that the Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein represents a threat to regional stability. The EU wants Washington to give diplomacy one more chance. British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said there was overwhelming support for the demand that the Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein should re-admit weapons...
