    Not much is known about what happened before gunshots disrupted a Panama City Beach house party, leaving seven people wounded. Even less is known about the alleged shooter, 21-year-old David Jamichael Daniels, or of his motivations. Daniels has been arrested at least six times over the last four years in Mobile County on a number of misdemeanor charges: gambling, drug possession, disorderly conduct and loitering. The seven counts of attempted murder would be the most serious charges he's faced. Daniels was never particularly violent, according to Sharon Daniels, his mother. "I've never known him to be violent towards anybody," she...

    On Thursday night, the scene outside of the Ferguson police department was remarkably calm, given two police officers had been shot from hundreds of feet away 24 hours earlier. The police milled about outside without wearing riot gear (though heavily armored cops were waiting inside an adjacent building), and the protesters chanted, marched and yelled confidently, even as they occupied an ominous space between police officers who had repeatedly abused them and a sniper at large who could have had a sight pointed at their backs. But there was no need to protest any differently or give in to fear,...

    The NBA consists of 76 percent black players. But blacks are just 13 percent of the country. Clearly, the league engages in racial discrimination against whites. Silly, right? Well, this is exactly what the sleight-of-hand Department of Justice pulled off to find that the Ferguson Police Department engages in "implicit and explicit racial bias"! The report insults anybody who's ever studied the statistics - or logic. The 105-page report concludes: "Ferguson's law enforcement practices are shaped by the City's focus on revenue rather than by public safety needs. This emphasis on revenue has compromised the institutional character of Ferguson's police...

    The Ruger Police carbine was designed by as a companion long arm to go with their P series pistols. This was to cash in on the trend of many law enforcement departments adding a carbine as an alternative or an addition to a shotgun for patrol cars. Ruger P series pistols use the same magazines and were offered in both 9mm and .40 caliber chamberings. Ruger made these carbines for 10 years, 1996 to 2006, marketing them to police departments but selling them to private buyers as well. The carbine is externally a traditionally styled long arm with a manual...
