    A federal prosecutor’s body was discovered on a Hollywood, Florida beach on May 24. He was shot in the head. Beranton J. Whisenant, Jr.’s body was found in May by a random individual. The police were investigating at the time to determine if Whisenant’s death was a “homicide, suicide, or something else.” Whisenant worked for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami in its major crimes unit. He was handling several visa and passport fraud cases in Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s district.

    The numbers are in: 102 shot, 15 dead over the Fourth of July weekend. Not a new high, just an ongoing flow of chaos and turmoil in what was once one of the greatest cities in America. Chicago’s Mayor, Rahm Emanuel, did not create the chaos, he simply expedited it due to his radical left ideology. Chicago’s decline is the direct result of the power of the Democrat Party in Illinois. Illinois, for all intents and purposes, is a one party state. OK, the Governor is a Republican, but powerless to change anything because the Chicago Democratic Party controls the...

    The majority of murders in the U.S. occur in only a small percentage of counties across the country. The Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) said in a new report that there is a “geographical concentration” of murders, with 68 percent of killings occurring in just 5 percent of the nation’s counties. The homicides also tend to be concentrated to relatively small pockets of those counties, the report said.

  • Sanctuary Cities: Murders, Sexual Assaults, and a Fresh Supply of Victims

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    Sanctuary cities are a breeding ground for experienced criminals, fledgling criminals and experienced victims. By their very nature, they are inviting people who fear deportation because they either already have, or soon will have committed a crime. And the politicians who support this criminality see it as a price worth paying to “appear” accepting of overall immigration; they defend the rights of criminal migrants in the hope of appealing to non-criminal migrants. It is not only wrong and unfair to conflate the two, but also it perpetuates the misery of the law-abiding migrants who are so frequently the victims. Today...

    Killings across the Richmond region soared in 2016 to the highest level in more than a decade, with African-Americans suffering the greatest loss of life at 81 percent of all victims. Homicides in the region’s four cities, three towns and 16 counties with a collective population of 1.26 million jumped 24 percent, from 98 in 2015 to 124 last year — the highest tally since 2005, when 132 killings occurred, according to a Richmond Times-Dispatch analysis of regional homicide data. The distressing loss of black lives continued at a disproportionately high pace in 2016, with 101 of the 124 victims,...

    ... There have been 22 homicides in the Prince William so far in 2016, compared to 10 last year. In many communities, the prospect of 22 murders in a year might not seem like a cause for concern. This year the District has so far tallied 134 slayings and neighboring Fairfax County so far had 18 homicides. But the numbers in Prince William County are the highest in the county since authorities began tracking homicides in 1975. The next most deadly year was 2006, when 16 people were slain. ... Experts attribute the increase to a range of factors, including...

    BRENTWOOD, N.Y. — Four dead teenagers. Two weeks. One town. And a ruthless gang, the authorities say, was most likely responsible for the toll. Again. On Sept. 13, Nisa Mickens, 15, and her best friend, Kayla Cuevas, 16, were murdered, their battered bodies found near an elementary school here. A week later and just two miles away, the skeletal remains of two more teenagers — identified as Oscar Acosta, 19, and Miguel Garcia-Moran, 15 — were found in the woods near a psychiatric hospital. Oscar had been missing since May, Miguel since February. Their deaths have been ruled homicides.

    NEW ORLEANS -- There have been 19 murders over the past 18 days in New Orleans. WWL-TV crime analyst Jeff Asher says it's the bloodiest stretch of time in the city since 2010. "To be having a stretch that is equaling what we had six years ago when murder was much more prevalent is obviously not a positive sign," Asher said. NOPD Deputy Chief Paul Noel called it a spike in violent crime, not a long term trend. "These cases most likely involve individuals that chose to engage in illegal activity," Noel said. "They chose to make decisions that put...

    Hillary Clinton, who if elected would be President Obama Part Two, is a world-class liar. Whenever She considers truth damaging to Herself -- as it usually is -- She lies. Normally, She gets away with it. She lied about her State Department e-mails: guilty as hell and free as a bird. She lied about the terrorist attack in Benghazi and, thus far, has got away with it. This year, it is up to the American people to do the only thing we can to prevent Her from becoming President Obama Part Two. Our only way to do that will be...
