  • Reducing juvenile arrests won't by itself end racial disparities: Opinion

    The Louisiana Center for Children's Rights has a graph on its website that shows that in 2013, 96 percent of the juveniles who were arrested in Orleans Parish were black. If you think that's outrageous, then you should look at the statistic from 2014 when 97 percent of the juvenile arrests in Orleans Parish were of black children. But, wait, there's more. In 2015, the last year that's on the LCCR's graph, 99 percent of the juveniles arrested in Orleans Parish were black. Those statistics bring to mind a point that author Michelle Alexander makes in "The New Jim Crow,"...
  • Donald Trump Interviewed Mitt Romney to ‘Torture’ Him, Roger Stone Says

    12/12/2016 3:24:53 PM PST · by springwater13 · 85 replies
    Donald Trump’s long-time but informal adviser Roger Stone says the Secretary of State job was dangled in front of Mitt Romney in order to “torture” him for previously opposing the president-elect. During a Sunday appearance on InfoWars with Alex Jones, a conspiratorial media outlet that has become a mouthpiece of the next president, Stone called Romney a “choker” and said that Trump was simply toying with him. “Donald Trump was interviewing Mitt Romney for Secretary of State in order to torture him,” Stone claimed on the program. “To toy with him. And given the history, that’s completely understandable. Mitt Romney...
  • Iowa Supreme Court bans life without parole for teen killers

    A divided Iowa Supreme Court on Friday banned judges from imposing life prison sentences without the possibility of parole on juveniles convicted of first-degree murder. The court ruled 4-3 that the sentence amounts to cruel and unusual punishment under the Iowa Constitution. Even juveniles who commit the most heinous crimes should someday have the option of proving to the Iowa Board of Parole that they have been rehabilitated and are fit for release, Justice Brent Appel wrote for the majority.
  • Police against initiative to lower jailing age to 12

    Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked and Social Welfare Minister Haim Katz are pushing an initiative to lower the age of criminal responsibility to 12 - but the Israel Police itself is against the idea. Police believe that lowering the age by which minors convicted of violent crimes can be jailed will encourage, not discourage, crime. "We maintain that it is necessary that the law allow police to arrest minors in exceptional cases," an opinion submitted by the Legal Counsel of the Department of Investigations (CID) states, Walla! News reports. "[But] the detention of minors under age 14 as proposed would not...

    Caroline Glick picked up on one article the Israeli left-wing paper Ha’aretz didn’t bother translating into English that details Obama’s involvement in the upcoming Israeli elections. A summary of the article is provided by IMRA (Independent Media Review & Analysis): Haaretz reporter Roi Arad revealed in an article in the Hebrew edition today [January 26] that the foreign funded organization, “One Voice”, is bankrolling the V-2015 campaign to defeat Binyamin Netanyahu’s national camp in the March 2015 Knesset Elections. One indication of the generous financing is that it has now flown in a team of five American campaign experts (including...
  • Visiting US, (Israeli) President Rivlin says he won’t meet Obama

    Rivlin is in New York to address the official Holocaust commemorations of the United Nations. His schedule includes meetings with African-American leaders and others. According to unsourced Israeli media reports, the White House invited Rivlin to a summit meeting with Obama in Washington. Israeli media outlets, including Channel 10 and the Ynet news site, have suggested the White House invitation was meant to embarrass Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was not invited to meet with Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry during his stay in Washington to address both houses of Congress in early March. Netanyahu was invited to...

    New York Daily News ^ | January 25, 2015 | Editorial Board
    President Obama’s refusal to meet with Benjamin Netanyahu when the Israeli prime minister comes to Washington in March to address a joint meeting of Congress is a petulant, juvenile snub — one that couldn’t be more badly timed. The Israeli leader “spat in our face,” an unnamed senior U.S. official told Israeli newspaper Haaretz, “and there will be a price.” An unnamed source “close to Kerry” told the Washington Post the House speech “could blunt Secretary Kerry’s enthusiasm for being Israel’s primary defender.” That’s gangster talk, aimed at one of America’s closest allies — all because the Israeli leader dared...

    A 10-year-old boy has been charged with criminal homicide after he brutally beat 90-year-old Helen Novak to death. Tristen Kurilla, apparently angry because the 90-year-old woman shouted at him, hooked a cane around Novak's neck and then held her down and beat her to death while she was in bed, according to prosecutors. Prosecutors said today that they have charged the child as an adult for the murder of Helen Novak, a woman who was under the care of the child's grandfather. The Associated Press reported that the incident occurred on Saturday when the boy was visiting his grandfather's house...

    Authorities aren't saying exactly what happened, but WCVB-TV reports that Chism can be seen on surveillance video carrying what appears to be a pencil and following the woman into a locker room. After he began choking the woman, other staffers quickly pulled him away, reports the TV station, which points out that the scenario "bears a chilling resemblance" to how teacher Colleen Ritzer was murdered at Danvers High School last year.

    31 minutes into the debate and one thing is clear - Joe Biden’s behavior will appeal to the obnoxious who are already in his corner – but any decent person watching the circus environment of his creation - will recognize the absolutely sophomoric behavior for what it is. Biden had his first strike against himself when he walked out on the stage with his face pulled so tight you could bounce a quarter off of it. At first I asked my wife what Barbara Walters was doing on the stage. Biden’s non-stop, fake laughter was bizarre and painful to watch....

    A cash-strapped 18-year-old man from northern Sweden was found leaving a sex shop with a nipple chain hidden in his pants after his lack of funds prompted him to pilfer the trinket for his girlfriend. The man took his time browsing around the shop, which is called Ladyland and located in central Sundsvall, in June last year. Store employees recalled him as friendly and chatty, according to local paper Sundsvalls Tidning. However, upon leaving, the 18-year-old set off the store's anti-shoplifting alarm. A search of the man revealed he had pocketed a so called nipple chain, worth some 119 kronor...

    Last week the parents of a Wisconsin boy sued Grant County District Attorney Lisa Riniker for charging their son with first-degree sexual assault, a Class B felony, after he played "butt doctor" with a 5-year-old girl. He was 6 at the time. When the boy's lawyer tried to have the charge dismissed, Riniker replied: "The legislature could have put an age restriction in the statute if it wanted to. The legislature did no such thing." According to the complaint (PDF), the girl is "the daughter of a well-known political figure in Grant County," and her brother, who is the same...

      Why Are the Movies Dying? David C. Stolinsky Oct. 27, 2011 The other evening my wife and I went to the movies. We intended to see “Margin Call,” a film about the financial crisis starring Kevin Spacey, Demi Moore, Stanley Tucci, Paul Bettany, and Jeremy Irons. The cast is outstanding and the subject timely. But the film was playing in only one small theater in all of the West Side of Los Angeles. The theater held only about 150 seats, and all but the first two rows were taken. So instead we went to another theater playing “The...

    Herewith is my proposal for a new word to be added to the English langtuage. I looked it up and no such word currently exists. The word is "ediphile". The word applies to (for example) a typical New York Times journalist who would call patriots and those genuinely concerned with the future of their country "terrorists" in an effort to generate "buzz" over their harebrained, left-twisted nonsense. Since Conservatives generally do not engage in this type of bomb-throwing juvenile name calling and are thus left undefended against same, we need a word to describe someone who would commit unspeakable acts...
