    On Wednesday, former NYPD sergeant, Alberto Randazzo, was sentenced to nearly three decades in prison for sexual exploitation and child pornography. He was also ordered to register as a sex offender; upon his release from jail, he is mandated to be supervised for up to eight years. This news came as a shock to many New Yorkians who undoubtedly viewed Randazzo as a model citizen and a wholesome pillar of their community. His sentencing was held at the federal courthouse in Brooklyn, New York.

Air Force sergeant Kyle Smith, from Gastonia, North Carolina, said that having to put Bodza down was one of the hardest things that he has ever done. He was euthanized on Thursday, and a military canine trainer draped a flag over his body. A photo shows Smith giving Bodza one final hug as he was laid to rest.

    Authorities called the death of Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Owen a “calculated execution.” Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell described the death in detail. “Sgt. Owen approached the suspect in response to a burglary call,” McDonnell said as large photos of Owen were behind him. “The suspect immediately shot Sgt. Owen. He then stood over and executed Sgt. Owen by firing four additional rounds in his body.” Before the news conference began at 4 p.m., authorities identified the man accused of killing Owen as Trenton Trevon Lovell, of Lancaster. Owen was shot and killed Wednesday after he responded...

Sgt. Nadia Clark, who was responding to a dispatch call before the wreck July 23, avoided being shot in part because the gunman’s weapon malfunctioned, according to an arrest-warrant affidavit by Officer Bradley Baker.

    OAKLAND -- A suspect wanted for shooting at an Oakland police sergeant Saturday night as she sat dazed in her patrol SUV after a collision was arrested Thursday morning after a standoff with Stockton police, officials said. The suspect's name was not released by police, who said he made statements that the July 23 shooting may have been inspired by recent anti-police sentiment in areas where there have been police shootings. --SNIP-- "Right now we don't know the why," Holmgren said about a motive. He said that the suspect was possibly inspired by anti-police sentiments, but didn't elaborate.

    Four weeks ago, Big Hollywood posted audio of a conference call in which Obama administration officials asked "grant recipients to plug Barack Obama’s domestic agenda." At least six federal laws and regulations were violated when then–NEA communications director Yosi Sergant and White House Office of Public Engagement deputy director Buffy Wicks tried twisting the arms of artists and arts groups interested in getting federal arts grants to produce government propaganda. To protect the scandal from expanding further, the White House threw Sergant under the bus, denied that they were involved issued new guidelines for the NEA and promised that it...

The emperor has lost his clothes.Where do we go from here?President Obama is going to get defensive. He’s going to get mean.

    At a military funeral this weekend in West Palm Beach, Florida, a couple of possibly retired Marines confronted a man dressed in a U.S. Army dress uniform. At first the conversation, posted on the Facebook page U.S Army W.T.F! moments, is cordial, then the Marines started to get suspicious of the alleged “sergeant major.” During the conversation, the Marines catch him in one too many lies about everything from violating uniform code to wearing the wrong ribbons and medals. The man also called himself a sergeant major, a military policeman, and a special forces operator. He also claims to have...

    The conflict between law enforcement and armed military personnel in the community around Fort Hood, one of America’s largest military bases, has recently and repeatedly involved the issue of gun control — and the tension has been exacerbated in part by an Obama-supporting prosecutor described as a “bandleader” of anti-gun efforts in the heavily conservative community. The conflict reached a fever pitch last month, when Texas police arrested an active-duty Army sergeant for “rudely displaying” a hunting rifle. The sergeant, C.J. Grisham, established an online legal defense fund after he was, in his words, “illegally arrested and disarmed” for carrying...

    With Sunday's news that a US soldier massacred 16 Afghan civilians, mostly women and children, in their sleep and then burned the bodies, the little that the US can claim to have achieved in Afghanistan, at great cost over a decade, is now likely to be lost. No American, and probably no westerner, will be safe in Afghanistan for a decade after the soldier's murderous rampage. Really, if they're willing to murder people over burned books, imagine the intensity of Afghan hatred for a truly heinous crime against sleeping civilians, with one man losing all 11 members of his family....

    Straight talk from Sgt. Maj. of the Marine Corps: “How dare we, then, exclude a group of people who want to do the same thing you do right now, something that is honorable and noble?” “Get over it,” he said. “We’re magnificent, we’re going to continue to be. Let’s just move on, treat everybody with firmness, fairness, dignity, compassion and respect. Let’s be Marines.” The Command Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps addressed a group of Marines at a base in South Korea several key topics, including the repeal of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy...

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 13, 2008 – “Normal” is a relative term, and for one former North Carolina Army National Guard sergeant, it’s distinctly different today from what it was in 2004. Former North Carolina Army National Guardsman Sgt. Andy Butterworth shows the crowd at Foxy’s, an eatery on Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands, that he can still hit the dance floor despite having lost a leg while serving in Iraq. Butterworth was part of a group of seven veterans and four spouses who participated in a five-day adaptive kayaking and camping adventure trip put on by Team River Runner,...

    FORT HUACHUCA — For more than two decades, drill sergeants have had a major hand in developing soldiers going through military intelligence training on this Southern Arizona Army post. That ended Friday. It doesn’t mean noncommissioned officers will no longer be standing in front of students, they just have a new name and will wear the hats of all soldiers. Instead of hearing student soldiers say, “Yes, drill sergeant,” now sergeants will hear, “Yes, platoon sergeant.” The de-hatting ceremony took place in the gym of the Eifler Physical Fitness Center, where soldiers in training sat in company formations in the...
