  • Collingswood mayor says schools' Call 911 policy dropped: It's 'fixed, finished, done.'

    Philly.com ^ | 6/30/16 | Emma Platoff
    A controversial policy that required Collingswood public schools to call police for nearly every incident of student misbehavior has been "reversed," Mayor James Maley said. The change comes after parents complained that their children, some as young as 7, were questioned by law enforcement for incidents such as roughhousing on the way to the cafeteria, allegedly making a racist comment at a third-grade class party, and a playground fight between two middle school boys. Parents did not receive any formal notification of that increase until School Board President David Routzahn and Police Chief Kevin Carey each put out a statement...

    During an end-of-the-year class party at a New Jersey elementary school, a 9-year-old boy said something about brownies and was subsequently questioned by a police officer who was called by the school to investigate an incident of racism. It was another student that accused the boy of saying something "racist," but the boy's mother said he was talking about "snacks, not skin color," according to Philly.com. "He said they were talking about brownies. Who exactly did he offend?" the mother, Stacy dos Santos, asked incredulously. When the boy's father was contacted later in the day, he was informed that the...

    This story is crazy. From Philly.com: On June 16, police were called to an unlikely scene: an end-of-the-year class party at the William P. Tatem Elementary School in Collingswood. A third grader had made a comment about the brownies being served to the class. After another student exclaimed that the remark was “racist,” the school called the Collingswood Police Department, according to the mother of the boy who made the comment. The police officer spoke to the student, who is 9, said the boy’s mother, Stacy dos Santos, and local authorities. Dos Santos said that the school overreacted and that...

    This man is a real-life hero. Sadly, we don't yet know whether he made it out in time. It goes without saying that we can write many terrible stories about the terror attack at Atatürk Airport in Istanbul yesterday. Dozens of people died -- at least 36, and possibly as many as 50 -- and as many as 150 innocent travellers were injured. There is a story behind every single one of those deaths: a story that, sadly, was ended prematurely because of the actions of a few radical Muslims who hate all those who dare have different views than...

    With the complete acquittal of Caesar Goodson this week, the argument being made by Maryland State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby has essentially imploded. Goodson was allegedly the “most culpable” in the death of Freddie Gray and the one officer involved in the incident who might have been convicted on any sort of charges. There are still four more trials slated to take place, however, all of which would grind more salt into the wounds between City Hall and the police force. Should they even continue? Legal experts are weighing in on the subject and there’s a fair case to to be...

Ryan labeled a high-profile stunt that undermined the basic institutions of government. Mr. Ryan said he was “not going to allow stunts like this to stop us from carrying out the people’s business.” He added, “This is about a publicity stunt and now a fund-raising scheme.” But on legislative business, it was Mr. Ryan who prevailed. He personally reclaimed control of the House, pounding his gavel and muscling through a major appropriations bill that included funding for combating the Zika virus, without debate.

City Hall sources told this newspaper that Liccardo and eight other council members were asked not to attend the public service. It was the family's request, they said they were told, based on the San Jose police officer's will. Katherman was killed on duty last week in a motorcycle accident.

It was a dangerous situation since the pony was trapped in the green space along I-40 and Czech Hall Rd., near Yukon. Troopers shut down the outside lane of I-40 as crews shot the pony with a tranquilizer dart. Fortunately, they were able to corral the little guy and get him in a trailer.

Then Mateen — whom police said had acted “cool and calm” during discussions — talked about killing more people. Alarmed, police placed an explosive device against the wall and detonated it. The breach failed; the hole wasn’t large enough to allow for a successful rescue. A...

    A group of Donald Trump supporters who took a beating at a San Jose rally are fighting back against the city for not doing enough to stop it. Juan Hernandez broke down in tears while describing the feeling of been attacked outside the Trump rally in San Jose. “We were getting sucker punches from all angles. There was three maybe four. I remember feeling fist after fist,” Hernandez said. He said anti-Trump protesters gave him a bloody nose and black eyes, prompting him to file a police report.

    Over the past year or so, several major cities across the United States have experienced a violent crime wave not seen since the 1990s. This spike in violent crime, measured by the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program, has confounded Leftist sociologists, bleeding-heart politicians, and members of the media, who constantly tend to blame private gun ownership and the police themselves for increased criminal activity. In fact, one of the prime causes of this problem may very well be the media and Leftist politicians, including the President and his previous and current Attorneys General. And the spark that appears to have...

    San Jose, California disgraced itself last week, allowing rioters to attack people exiting a political rally for the presumptive Republican nominee for president. Now, thanks to Aleister of Gateway Pundit, we know that the police chief of that city, Eddie Garcia, who admitted that he instructed his officers not to intervene and arrest the attackers, is aligned with an extremist race-based group, La Raza (Spanish for “The Race”)
