    A faculty member at California State University, Fullerton has been suspended after striking a College Republicans member during a campus protest earlier this month.

Anthropology part-time lecturer Eric Canin reportedly approached the group of counter-protesters — many of them being CSUF College Republicans members — and tried to rip a sign out of a student’s hand. Mr. Canin was accused of then striking another student who tried to step between them. The group’s president, Chris Boyle, said he witnessed the hit and proceeded to restrain Mr....

    Vox deputy editor Emmett Rensin was suspended by the media site Friday for encouraging people to riot at Donald Trump rallies. Vox editor-in-chief Ezra Klein said in a statement that Mr. Rensin’s conduct “violated Vox’s standards and Emmett has been suspended as a consequence.” “We at Vox do not take institutional positions on most questions, and we encourage our writers to debate and disagree,” Mr. Klein said. “But direct encouragement of riots crosses a line between expressing a contrary opinion and directly encouraging dangerous, illegal activity.” Mr. Rensin posted a series of tweets Thursday night encouraging people to riot at...

    Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn condemned anti-Semitism late Sunday night, after weeks of blatantly hateful remarks by members of the party against Jews and Israel. "Anti-Semitism is absolutely abhorrent and wrong,” he stated, on a BBC One interview. “Anyone that commits any act of anti-Semitism, that makes anti-Semitic remarks, is auto excluded from the party and an inquiry follows immediately." "We have suspended, we will suspend, any member that behaves in that way," he added. Corbyn's statement surfaces after weeks of unfettered hatred from Labour party members toward Jews. In March, Vicki Kirby, a party organizer banned for calling Hitler...

    There is nothing quite like the petty despotism of the public school system. A boy from McMinnville, Tennessee, was suspended after coming to Bobby Ray Memorial Elementary School with a haircut deemed inappropriate by the principal. It was a "high and tight" military-style haircut that the boy had requested so that he would look more like his step-brother, an active-duty soldier. The principal did not budge, leaving the boy's mother no choice but to shave his head so that he could come back to school.

    New troubling details are emerging about the livery cab driver who survived the fatal crash of journalist Bob Simon in a car accident this week. Police have confirmed that the Lincoln Town Car transporting the longtime “60 Minutes” correspondent to a medical talk about Ebola on Wednesday night sped up before rear-ending the Mercedes-Benz in front of it and crashing into metal barricades on Manhattan’s West Side Highway. Law enforcement officials have suggested that Simon’s driver, Abdul Reshad Fedahi, likely hit the gas pedal instead of the brake. But reports from the New York Post, the New York Daily News,...

Leland Yee of San Francisco and Ron Calderon of Montebello face federal bribery charges in separate cases resulting from undercover FBI stings. Sen.

    The Navy has suspended two admirals in a broadening bribery scandal that already has ensnared three senior naval officials. Involving charges of prostitution and payoffs, the scandal is the U.S. military’s highest-profile case of officer misconduct this year — part of a trend that has caused deep concern among Pentagon officials.
