    A former Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an Australian woman last summer is seeking to have a civil case filed against himself and others stayed until after his trial on third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges has concluded. Mohamed Noor filed a request for a stay Thursday in U.S. District Court. The family of Justine Damond - the woman killed in the July 2017 shooting - filed a lawsuit in federal court last month against Noor, partner Matthew Harrity, former police chief Janee Harteau, current police chief Medaria Arradondo and the city. In the lawsuit, Damond's father, John...

    Defense attorneys want charges dismissed against a former Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an Australian woman last year. Attorneys for ex-officer Mohamed Noor argue in motions filed Wednesday that the charges should be dropped because of prosecutorial misconduct and lack of probable cause. Noor is charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the July 15, 2017, death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, a 40-year-old life coach who was engaged to be married. She was killed after calling 911 to report a possible sexual assault. Prosecutors say Noor was in a squad car's passenger seat when he shot Damond...

    Kellie Collins, a former congressional candidate in Georgia’s 10th District, was charged with the murder of her former campaign treasurer, Curtis Cain. The allegations of murder follow Collins’ advocacy for “responsible” gun control laws during her campaign. WSB-TV reports that she argued for stricter legislation “to protect the community.” Police found Cain’s body in Collins’s apartment with a gunshot wound. Cain did not come in to work last Tuesday, prompting deputies to check in on him. Police estimated that he was dead for roughly a week.

    Townhall.com ^ | August 13, 2018 | Sheriff David Clarke (Ret)
    It was another bloody weekend in the city of Chicago recently with 12 dead and 80 others non-fatally shot. Sixteen of the shooting victims were children. No arrests were made due to a lack of community help. It seemed to be a yawner for most liberal media outlets like run of the mill street violence events have become. Sadly, these killings have become so common that they have become part of the landscape in the American ghetto. The reason is that unless the leftist media can check off something on their gun control agenda they don’t seem to have much...

    A Honduran woman pleaded guilty to being an "enforcer" in a slave labor ring that smuggled girls as young as 14 into the country and used threats of violence to force them to work in North Hudson bars. Xochil Nectalina Rosales Martinez, 29, also had been smuggled into this country and forced to work in one of the bars, but was later told she was in charge of running the Guttenberg apartment the ring used as a safehouse. She said she was told that if "any of these bitches get out of line, you should beat them." She said she...

    Deliberately taking a small child’s life is unlawful everywhere in the world, even when the child is terminally ill and asks a doctor to end his or her suffering once and for all. There is an exception to this rule: Belgium. In 2014, that country amended its law on euthanasia, already one of the most permissive in the world, authorizing doctors to terminate the life of a child, at any age, who makes the request. For a year after the law passed, no one acted on it. Now, however, euthanasia for children in Belgium is no longer just a theoretical...

    A 22-year-old man who admitted to causing the death of his then-girlfriend's 2-year-old son in 2016 was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in prison. . . . . . Multnomah County prosecutors said Kraig was Zachariah's sole caretaker on the day the child went into extreme medical distress, and he waited more than an hour before trying to get the boy help. Zachariah later died at OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital. He had bruises on his head, face, abdomen, buttocks, thighs and feet and a tear to his anus, court documents said.

    A court has dropped some of the bogus charges against pro-life advocate David Daleiden, who exposed the sales of body parts from aborted babies at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics and throughout the abortion industry. The National Abortion Federation (NAF) dismissed seven out of eleven claims on Friday against Daleiden and his organization, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), in court on Friday. In 2015, NAF sued David and CMP after they began releasing undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s trafficking of baby body parts. Buying and selling fetal tissue is illegal under federal law.

    An analysis examining killings over the past decade in 52 of the largest cities in the United States found that black victims were less likely than any other racial group to have their killings result in an arrest. The Washington Post's analysis released Wednesday finds that African Americans accounted for the majority of homicide victims. According to the data, out of the 26,000 killings analyzed across the 52 cities, the victim was black in 18,600 of the cases. The analysis also found that police arrested someone in just 47 percent of the killings of African-American victims, compared to arrests made...
