Transit Police Officer Nicholas Young was sentenced to 15 years in prison for attempting to provide material support to ISIS.In July 2016, Young purchased gift cards and sent their code numbers to someone that he believed had joined ISIS in Syria. According to the Justice Department, Young hoped that ISIS would use the money from the gift cards to pay for secure communications between ISIS officials and potential foreign recruits. As it turned out, Young’s ISIS friend in Syria was actually an FBI informant who was part of a six-year long intelligence operation to nab the...

  • “Statistical Evidence Not Required” (Heather MacDonald on DOJ and Chicago Police)

    01/17/2017 4:44:22 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 23 replies ^ | Heather MacDonald
    The most important statement in the Justice Department’s damning report on the Chicago Police Department has nothing to do with police behavior. Released on Friday, the report found the Chicago police guilty of a “pattern or practice” of unconstitutional force. But it turns out that the Justice Department has no standard for what constitutes a “pattern or practice” (the phrase comes from a 1994 federal statute) of unconstitutional police conduct. “Statistical evidence is not required” for a “pattern or practice” finding, the DOJ lawyers announce, citing unrelated court precedent. Nor is there “a specific number of incidents” required to constitute...

    The Army is changing the rules for one of its last remaining officers’ clubs to be more “inclusive,” opening membership at the storied Fort Myer watering hole to service members of any rank. The commander of the instillation, which neighbors Arlington National Cemetery and is known officially as Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, cited George S. Patton, the famed general who carried ivory-handled pistols, was independently wealthy, and who spoke French, in opening up the elite club to enlisted men. “Beginning Thursday, Sept. 1, service members of any rank or military branch will be able to dine at the historic club...

Her husband, who works the evening shift as a police officer, left home hours earlier, leaving it to her to prepare dinner and feed the children, then see to it that they are bathed and put to bed. These things are done, and it’s almost nine o’clock. She has a little time to relax and watch some television. Near the television set are family photographs, some featuring her husband in his uniform: this one on his police academy graduation day; another...
