    ight Los Angeles police officers who mistakenly opened fire on Los Angeles Times newspaper delivery women thinking they were rogue ex-cop Christopher Dorner in 2013 will not be criminally charged, the L.A.

Law enforcement officers around the region were on edge during the massive manhunt for Dorner, the ex-LAPD officer who sought vengeance against police officials he blamed for his firing....

    Three things about Donald Trump have now become clear to the Republican establishment: 1) He might not implode before people start voting for president next year. 2) He could actually wind up as the Republican nominee for president. -snip- Right to Rise raised more than $103 million in the first six months of this year. It spent - as I mentioned above - $28 million on ads. Let's say the organization has spent another $15 million on fundraising, consulting fees and other miscellaneous costs. And let's assume, just for the sake of this argument, that Right to Rise hasn't raised...

    Vatican newspaper compares marriage equality to communism Vatican City Faced with recent setbacks in the United States and Europe, the Roman Catholic Church has intensified its increasingly uphill battle against gay marriage. The latest salvo came this week, with a front-page article in the Vaticans semiofficial newspaper, LOsservatore Romano. Historian Lucetta Scaraffia compared proponents of gay marriage, with their championing of marriage equality, to 20th-century communists who wooed millions with their promise of perfect social and economical equality. Scaraffia, a 64-year-old former feminist activist who later became a fervent Catholic, has often written in the Vatican newspaper on the...

    Say what you want about North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il, the man liked his Hennessy. For two years in the mid-1990s, he was the world's largest buyer of Hennessy Paradis cognac, importing up to $800,000 of the stuff a year, both to quaff himself and to give as gifts, and his death has caused a resurgence in discussion and commentary on his expensive cognac habits. So does Hennessy appreciate all of the free advertising provided by the coveted Dear Leader seal of approval? "There's been no negative feedback, but it hasn't affected sales either," Jennifer Yu, Director of Communications...

    (3/15/06 - KTRK/HOUSTON) - He's paid to protect and serve. Instead, one Harris County sheriff's deputy is accused of putting the pedal to the metal, driving 100 miles per hour. But he didn't even get a ticket. So we asked authorities why not? From the JamCam perched at the Beltway and Imperial Valley, you could see police several Houston police cars surrounding a man dressed in white standing next to his red Corvette. That's is off-duty sheriff's deputy Robert Cormier, who was pulled over for driving way too fast Wednesday morning. We asked Sgt. Dana Wolfe with the Harris County...
