    When Brad and Molly Nemec’s Dodge Durango broke down in downtown Stillwater last month, they called City Hall to explain that it would be stranded overnight. The Lindstrom, Minn., couple, who rescue Jindu dogs destined for slaughter in Korea, were on their way to pick up six dogs in Wisconsin when their SUV overheated near Teddy Bear Park. The dogs, flown from Seoul to Chicago, had been picked up at O’Hare International Airport by a friend of Nemec’s. The friend planned to meet the Nemecs near the Wisconsin Dells, a halfway point between their home and the Chicago airport. “We...

It was not immediately clear which agency the fourth agent belonged to. Their injuries are not considered life-threatening, Stuart said.

Adams County Sheriff Ryan Zollman said people in the office are being called "murderers" and said the calls coming in forced one emergency dispatcher to leave her post Tuesday.

    Are three cop killers on the loose in Lake County? Nearly a month has passed since the gunshot death of a northern Illinois police lieutenant shocked Americans coast to coast. Vivid accounts of the massive manhunt for three ostensible killers drove news accounts for days. The funeral of Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz — "G.I. Joe" to many friends — attracted fellow officers from across the U.S. The wails of bagpipes, a trumpeting of taps and seven helicopters flying in a "V" formation bid him a final tribute. Unresolved then, as now, was the explanation of what led to the lieutenant's...

September 23, 2015 Dawn Perlmutter    An underreported aspect of the war on police is the widespread desecration of fallen officer memorials throughout the country. The increase in vandalism of police memorials directly corresponds to the increase in anti-police movements and protests. Since the formation of the Black Lives Matter Movement memorials honoring officers killed in the line of duty have been attacked in Philadelphia, Chicago, Fresno, Denver, New Orleans, Oakland, Austin, Rochester NY, Covington KY, Fayetteville AR and Raleigh NC. Vandalism has...

    Suggestions that police are biased and not doing their jobs properly -- made by some of the nation's top leaders -- create a dangerous climate for the men and women who serve and protect, says former U.S. Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.). "Why do we believe police need retraining or reorganization and reforming?" West asked. "The most important thing to understand is leaders establish climate, an atmosphere," West told Fox News's Greta Van Susteren Monday night.

    A terrifying helmet cam video, released to the public Wednesday, depicts a SWAT team executing a search warrant on the home of a 68-year-old woman and her 18-year-old adopted daughter. The video is raising questions of privacy, reasonable force and police due diligence. They had the wrong place. The raid of Louise Milan and daughter Stephanie Milan’s Evansville, Ind. home was accompanied by the sound of shattering glass and multiple flash-bang grenades. It was all due to the Milan’s non-password protected Internet router, according to the Evansville Courier & Press. The raid was prompted by a series of threatening posts...
