    In an official announcement on The Tom Joyner Morning Show, King said that the project, which he has dubbed Injustice Boycott, will aim to force the progressive cities to meet local activists’ demands regarding police brutality. And if those demands are not met within 43 days — by Martin Luther King Jr. Day — King says that he will activate Injustice Boycott supporters — more than 200,000 people, according to his estimate — to level a four-prong attack on commerce and government. King, who took a job as a justice columnist at The Daily News last year, said that the...

    Some women in Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL)-controlled Mosul have said they are “much more afraid” of the jihadist group’s all-female “morality police,” or Khansaa Brigade, than the battle-hardened male terrorists, reports NBC News. The all-female units of the jihadist group’s “morality police,” also known as Hisbah, had been tasked with patrolling the streets of Mosul and enforcing an extreme version of Shariah law. Members of the Hisbah Khansaa Brigade favor a torture tool known as “the biter,” which refers to “metal prongs designed to clip chunks of flesh as punishment for women who violated strict ISIS’ dress codes,” NBC News learned...
