They city has been thrown into turmoil over the officer-involved shooting of Sylville Smith. Barrett said that the officer was wearing a body-cam at the time of the shooting. He didn’t see the full video, but...

    French authorities have closed down three mosques since the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris, and there are many more to come. Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve will show no mercy toward radical mosques as long as France is in a state of emergency. The third mosque was shut down Wednesday after police found "jihadist documents" during a raid east of Paris. **SNIP** "According to official figures and our discussions with the interior ministry, between 100 and 160 more mosques will be closed because they are run illegally without proper licenses, they preach hatred or use takfiri speech," El Alaoui told...

    The head of a consulting firm founded by one of Bill Clinton's closest aides pushed back against allegations by Senator Charles E. Grassley, the Iowa Republican who is chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, that the firm had undue influence on Hillary Rodham Clinton's diplomatic work. In a letter to the committee in October, Declan Kelly, the Irish-born chief executive of the firm, Teneo, responded to questions about an agreement that permitted Huma Abedin, one of Mrs. Clinton's closest aides and the vice chairwoman of her campaign, to receive income both from her position at the State Department and as...

    An offshoot of the Clinton Foundation has announced plans to resubmit its federal tax returns to the Internal Revenue Service, reversing an earlier decision against such a move. The Clinton Health Access Initiative, which offers HIV/AIDS treatment and vaccination programs, had decided on Monday that its 2012 and 2013 990 forms had only minor errors that do not require them to be refiled with the IRS. In the wake of media criticism, however, the group changed its mind again on Wednesday. 'As previously stated, the minor errors on the 2012 and 2013 CHAI 990s are immaterial and do not require...
  • A shift in gang tactics means drive-bys are giving way to walk-ups, observers say

    Ricardo Nunez was trimming a tree outside his Echo Park home on a Sunday morning last month when a white truck pulled up and a person inside opened fire, killing the 35-year-old father. Ray Martinez, the LAPD detective investigating the case, is seeing fewer such fatal drive-by shootings. When Martinez goes behind the yellow tape, he's more commonly working on cases where a gunman has walked straight up to the victim — a walk-up shooting. As gang culture has become less overt, the killings have become more targeted — and at the same time more chilling. "They get to see...

    The American Tort Reform Assn calls NYC's asbestos court the nation’s top “judicial hellhole”. Silver has been blocking tort-reform bills for decades. Silver's arrest centers on his no-show legal work for asbestos-profiteer, Weitz and Luxemberg, (as well as millions in bribes and kickbacks from fixing real-estate cases)..... judges with ties to Silver and his lifelong pal, Jonathan Lippman, the chief judge of the state Court of Appeals, presided over the cases. Silver was “of counsel” to Weitz & Luxemberg which earned unusual fast-track “red-carpet treatment” “better judges” and first dibs on jurors. Sherry Klein Heitler, the chief asbestos judge (at...

    Brenden LaRosa showed up to protest during First Night festivities with a message: Americans must talk to each other about race and policing, no matter how hard — or how unpopular — the conversation is. “We almost want people to feel uncomfortable. Then you’re forced to answer this question, and you’re forced to question the way you feel about it,” said the 19-year-old from Everett, who joined other demonstrators Wednesday evening in Copley Square. He estimated that he has been to five protests against the recent grand jury decisions not to indict white officers who killed unarmed black men in...

    WASHINGTON — After six years and a $40-million investigation, the Democratic-led Senate Intelligence Committee is expected to release conclusions this month from its controversial probe of CIA detention and interrogation of terrorism suspects overseas during the George W. Bush administration. The partly redacted report is likely to renew the national debate over now-banned techniques that critics decried as torture and which supporters insist were necessary to stop further terrorist plots after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. U.S. embassies in the Middle East, North Africa and other parts of the Islamic world have been told to prepare for the possibility...

    WFTV in Orlando, Florida reported Friday about a callous, violent robbery of an elderly white woman by three young black men that left the woman hospitalized with a serious brain injury and a broken clavicle. The Publix surveillance videos released to the media show rare, clear before, during and after video of the victim, the perps and the robbery. There will be no protests, no candlelight vigils, no statement by President Barack Obama, no Justice Department investigation, no visits by Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson. The race ‘healers’ won’t descend on Ocoee like they are doing in Ferguson this week...

For the school district, it’s a chance to bring resolution to a case...

    Many in U.S. Are Arrested by Age 23, Study FindsBy ERICA GOODE Published: December 19, 2011 By age 23, almost a third of Americans have been arrested for a crime, according to a new study that researchers say is a measure of growing exposure to the criminal justice system in everyday life. The study, the first since the 1960s to look at the arrest histories of a national sample of adolescents and young adults over time, found that 30.2 percent of the 23-year-olds who participated reported having been arrested for an offense other than a minor traffic violation. That figure...

Emanuel Cleaver, a Kansas City Democrat, who observed the protests in New York over the weekend. “The main message is: ‘We are tired of allowing the federal government to lean toward the wealthy.’” There is no denying that a vast segment of Congress is beholden to policies that favor wealthy corporations and financial interests and very rich individuals — exactly the interests that are...

The release is full of bluster over their Supreme Court victory and claims the fire was a result of God's wrath for Pennsylvania. After all, isn't that where the man who sued them for protesting his son's funeral and inititiated a landmark free...

    'Speech or debate' clause invoked in investigations of House membersBy Jerry Markon and R. Jeffrey Smith Washington Post Staff Writers Monday, January 17, 2011; 12:19 AM A constitutional clash over whether House members are immune from many forms of Justice Department scrutiny has helped derail or slow several recent corruption investigations of lawmakers, according to court documents and sources. At issue is a provision in the Constitution known as the "speech or debate" clause, which shields legislative work from executive branch interference. House members have increasingly asserted the privilege in corruption probes, often citing a 2007 court ruling that said...

    Somewhere – wherever his eternal home is – Dick Nixon is smiling today. He pulled a lot of shady, underhanded, illegal stuff in his life. But he’s potentially giving the Commander in Chief props today. On Thursday, the New York Stock Exchange was brought to its knees by what many reports are saying was “one stray trade” or “one mistakenly stroked key” on a keyboard. Investigators are trying to find the singular cause of the problem that caused the largest point swing in the history of investments. On Thursday afternoon, CNBC’s Money Honey, Maria Bartiromo, said, “I mean this really...

At this point, you've got to wonder: Why bother? **SNIP** What she didn't say is that timing really doesn't matter, because any damage to the collective Jefferson reputation is already done....

    Dems to reveal how they'll pay for healthcareBy Mike Soraghan Posted: 07/06/09 05:17 PM [ET] By the end of this week, House Democrats may have answered the biggest question looming in the healthcare debate – how they plan to pay for their overhaul. Leadership aides say they will introduce a bill by Thursday or Friday, in preparation for votes in committee next week. And that bill, they say, will include a way to pay for the bill. “It is premature to point to any specific provision, but the House is committed to ensure that healthcare reform is paid for,” said...
