    Comic-book movies have had a woman problem for, oh, forever. But this past week has been a particularly notable low for Marvel, which seems incapable of understanding that its superhero movies are laughably sexist. Let’s take a look back at the week of the studio’s tone-deafness: Marvel released the sequel “Avengers: Age of Ultron” last Friday to criticism over its portrayal of Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow. She was seen by many as overly domesticated and feminized — and grossly underrepresented in the movie’s action figures, a fact noted by “Avengers” star Mark Ruffalo on Twitter.

City prosecutors asked for a bail of $5,000 and no-contact order between Solo and the alleged victims. However, Kirkland Municipal Court Judge Michael J.

The judge also ordered Solo to not consume alcohol as a condition of her release. A pretrial hearing is scheduled for Aug. 11. Among those seated in court was Jerramy Stevens,...

Shoffner is scheduled to stand trial Monday on the bribery and extortion charges. In that case, she is...

Individuals are speaking out in the most extreme voice, bitterly questioning the system, and vehemently attacking all who allowed for acquittal. Venting frustration is acceptable. Stirring emotion, understandable. Avoiding facts, inexcusable! Or is it? Our government allows for a trial, a fair trial, not a lynching. And in this case, a unanimous agreement was given. After thorough examination of fact, jurists of his peers found George Zimmerman not guilty. Facts can be...

    There are no winners in the trial of George Zimmerman. The only question is whether the damage that has been done has been transient or irreparable. Legally speaking, Zimmerman has won his freedom. But he can still be sued in a civil case, and he will probably never be safe to live his life in peace, as he could have before this case made him the focus of national attention and orchestrated hate. More important than the fate of George Zimmerman, however, is the fate of the American justice system and of the public's faith in that system and in...

    “It’s dangerous for America the way were doing this as a trial in the media with the whole nation as jury.” This observation about the trial of George Zimmerman for the murder of Florida teen Trayvon Martin in 2012 by MSNBC host Touré was as true when he made it, in March of last year, as it is today. Too few, it seems, have taken his advice to heart. Since the Zimmerman trial began, the instant analysis of the nationally televised case – meriting near wall-to-wall coverage on the cable news outlets – has not been favorable to the prosecution....

The testimony, in week three of Zimmerman's murder trial, came after the mothers of both Zimmerman and Martin testified Friday it was their son doing the screaming in the Feb. 26, 2012, 911 call made to Sanford, Fla., police.

    After a 2009 state recommendation that Duval County schools remove a teacher from vulnerable students, he was reassigned to another elementary school. Last week he was arrested on six sexual charges against a child. One of the problems: neither the state nor the school district defined “vulnerable student population.” And Monday, the state Department of Children and Families put the responsibility for defining the phrase squarely on the Duval County Public Schools. Christopher Robert Bacca, Windy Hill Elementary School’s Teacher of the Year, was charged with three counts of sexual battery against a child under 12 and one count...
