  • Colorado City to Pay $325,000 For Unlawful Search and Seizure

    01/15/2017 5:49:10 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 10 replies
    An attempt to locate a bank robbery suspect is costing the city of Aurora $325,000. The city agreed to settle a lawsuit brought forth by people who were detained at an intersection while police tried to find a man who robbed a nearby bank. Some motorists were approached at gunpoint by police following the robbery, handcuffed and made to wait two hours before the scene was cleared. Stacks of money stolen from the bank contained a GPS tracking device that led police to the intersection. When police arrived in the area, they weren't able to use GPS to specifically pinpoint...
  • HOT lane lottery makes a mockery of GTA traffic woes: Keenan

    The Ontario lottery corporation recently started advertising its newest scratch-and-win lottery: tickets cost $30 (the highest price among its lotteries), and the top prize is a cool $2.5 million. Now, if you want an indication of how bad traffic is in the GTA, consider that Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca announced a lottery of his own on Thursday: tickets cost $180 each, though you only pay if you win. The prize? One of 1,000 permits to drive in an uncongested highway lane for 16 kilometres between Burlington and Oakville. The ad copy writes itself: Imagine the freedom of cruising at...

    BOULDER, Colo. -- Dynel Lane gets 100-year prison sentence for attacking a pregnant Longmont woman, cutting baby from her womb. Boulder County prosecutors were seeking a 126-year prison sentence for the woman who faked her pregnancy, then attacked a pregnant Longmont woman, cutting the unborn baby from her womb.

    A Boulder County jury convicted Dynel Lane on all counts Tuesday — including attempted murder — in the vicious attack that left an expectant Longmont mother fighting for her life and claimed her unborn child. After seven hours of deliberation over two days, the jury found Lane guilty of attempted first-degree murder, two counts each of first- and second-degree assault, and unlawful termination of a pregnancy. Michelle Wilkins, the 27-year-old who lost her unborn daughter in the March 18 attack, hugged her father as the guilty verdict was read, bringing the weeklong trial to an end and closing a pivotal...

    Two weeks before the primary, a super PAC that backs Republican women has entered a competitive House race in West Virginia. Women Lead PAC had endorsed former International Trade Commissioner Charlotte Lanes bid for the 2nd District in the Mountain State. The super PAC has put $40,000 into a direct mail effort to boost Lanes bid before the May 13 primary, according to a source involved. The source added that the group is likely to put more money behind the piece:

    It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Gal 5:1 Back before the communist took over the Universities I had a professor who said everything is based on economics. Every decision you make good or bad is an economic decision on how that decision will cost or reward you. He gave the example of marriage as an economic decision women make proving that it is not based on love for women, but on what benefits a potential husband brings to her economic...

    In the United States, if you are convicted of a hate crime, your sentence is usually extended 15 years or so. This trend of criminalizing thought - as noble as it seems in the case of hate crimes - is a dangerous precedent. Allow me to explain. The goal of the state in law and law enforcement is to seek justice for those who have been wronged. This is a simple statement that underpins conservative civic theory, limited government, and a victim- not criminal-centered approach to justice, but it certainly goes against most of legal philosophy today. And I am...

    Fearful residents in the Oklahoma city where Australian Chris Lane was gunned down are buying up handguns to protect themselves. One of Duncan's most popular gun shops, Danny's Gun Pawn, is reporting a rise in sales of handguns. Top of the shopping list is the Ruger LCP, a US-made, ultra-light .38 calibre pistol that can be carried in a purse or concealed on the body. 'Oh yeah,' Elaine, a spokeswoman at the shop who did not want to give her surname, replied on Thursday when asked if there had been a rise in sales since Mr Lane's death a week...

    Our own Col. Allen West appeared on Hannity last night and took on the gansta culture that appears to have heavily influenced the murder of Chris Lane in Oklahoma one week ago today. West, who hosts at our sister site Next Generation TV along with John Phillips and Michelle Fields, told substitute host David Webb. “It is a gangster culture out there. It is a culture that is being permeated throughout the media, and throughout the entertainment industry, that we need to start speaking out about. And furthermore, when you think about the fact that 72% of black babies...

    Was it a thrill kill or part of a gang initiation? That would be the bushwhacking of Chris Lane, an Aussie college kid and baseball star. Lane was gunned down running along a country road near Duncan, Oklahoma, the other day. You know the story by now. Does it matter what motivated Allen Luna and James Francis Edwards, Jr., Chris Lane's accused killers, and Michael Dewayne Jones, an accessory, to off a young man with a promising future who was just going about the routine of his life on a summer's day? In one sense it doesn't matter. Whether those...

    American Thinker ^ | August 22, 2013 | Taleeb Starkes
    Imagine the Left's reaction if the shocking, inter-racial murder of Christopher Lane had occurred when G.W Bush was president and he had stated, "If I had a son, he'd look like Christopher," or "Christopher Lane could've been me 35 years ago." Undoubtedly, the race-peddlers and entire grievance industry would've interpreted his comments as a subtle war declaration against Black America. Yet, when President Obama made these statements about Trayvon Martin, the Lefties claimed that he wasn't being divisive, he was simply "keepin' it real." The racial dynamics of both Christopher Lane and Trayvon Martin's scenarios have many people focusing on...

    Full Title: "One of the Boy 'arrested over Australian baseball's murder' is linked to string of armed robberies with his PREGNANT girlfriend" Michael Jones, 17, who was driving the car and brought in by cops repeatedly after a spate of raids, one of the investigating detectives said today. MailOnline can also reveal that James Edwards, 15, who Jones allegedly said pulled the trigger, was known to have a 'very short' temper and is 'incredibly violent'. Detective John Byers told MailOnline that investigators recognized Jones' Ford Focus from surveillance footage and that triggered their search for the killers of the Australian...

    Editors note: This story contains extremely graphic language and content that will be offensive to some readers. The Twitter account believed to belong to 15-year-old James Edwards, one of the three teens charged in the murder of Australian student Chris Lane, is filled with graphic and shocking language about killing, smoking and even hating white people. Edwards and Chancey Luna, 16, have been charged with first degree murder in the case. They each face life in prison and are being held without bond in Duncan, Okla. Micheal Jones, 17, has been charged with using a vehicle to facilitate the...

    DUNCAN, Okla. Even before his name became known worldwide before authorities said he and two other boys killed an Australian college student because they were "bored" the boy known as "Bug" had changed. His sister saw it; so did family friends: His American Eagle clothes and sweet demeanor were replaced about six months ago by drooping pants, the do-rags, and a vile stream of braggadocio, sexism and racism the 15-year-old unleashed over his social media accounts. In an Oklahoma town of about 23,000 that was 82% white, Bug, who is black, sometimes tweeted things like "90% of...

    Australian Christopher Lane was killed on Monday in Oklahoma by three teens, one of whom has said they were just bored. The right is complaining that the media is making nothing of the fact that two of the teens were black whereas Lane was white, as opposed to the massive alarm sounded in cases such as white (or white-ish) George Zimmerman killing black Trayvon Martin.

    When news of the three teens who went out for a thrill-killing and shot and killed an Austrailian jogger in the back reached former Florida GOP Congressman Allen West, he took to the social media and called out, among others, President Barack Obama. Melbourne, Australia native Christopher Lane, 22, attended Oklahomas East Central University on a baseball scholarship when he was senselessly murdered just for fun. While Australias former deputy prime minister Tim Fischer blames the U.S. for the killing and has called for a boycott, West notes the sound of crickets emanating from the White House especially after...

    The Truth About Guns ^ | Aug 21, 2013 | Nick Leghorn
    Yesterday, CNN was all over the story of three teenagers in Oklahoma who shot and killed a baseball player who was walking down the street just to watch him die. Its a horrific story, and these teens definitely deserve to fry, but as with every other gun-related story the mainstream media picks up on, its being used to demonize the NRA and further the gun control agenda. But consider the following: these teens were too young to legally purchase firearms in the first place. So, in fact, the proposed gun control bill that Democrats still have their panties in a...

    Josh Earnest, principal deputy White House press secretary, said he was not familiar with the murder of Australian jogger Chris Lane during Wednesdays White House briefing. When asked by Fox News chief White House correspondent Ed Henry about the Chris Lane case, Earnest responded, Im not familiar with it, actually. Henry explained the case in brief to Earnest looking for reaction to the Oklahoma shooting death of Lane at the hands of bored African-American teens who thought it would be fun to kill somebody. This sounds like a pretty tragic case. I wouldnt want to get ahead of the legal...

    AN Oklahoma court has been told how one of the boys accused of murdering Melbourne baseballer Chris Lane danced and laughed as he was being taken into a police station to be charged. James Edwards, 15, was treating the murder as a joke, District Attorney Jason Hicks told a hearing in the town of Duncan on Tuesday (Wednesday morning AEST). Mr Hicks told the court that Edwards has previously been in contact with police, and that he "an attitude of total disregard for law enforcement" when he was being charged over Lane's death.
