The intruders didn't make it out of the house alive. 33-year-old, Maurice Skinner and 33-year-old, Diego Everette were identified by police as the men killed in the burglary attempt. Both men are from Jacksonville. Skinner and Everette were pronounced dead at the scene, but according to Jacksonville Police Chief, Mike Yaniero it is unlikely that anyone will be charged in the shooting. "The investigation is ongoing, however at this time there is no evidence to suggest that criminal charges be filed." Chief...

It was 10:53 p.m. Both vehicles were backed into parking spaces at the restaurant on Campostella Road near its intersection with Indian River Road. Armed with handguns and with their faces covered, two men approached the cars and pointed their weapons at the drivers in an attempt to rob them. "Give it up," one of the men said. But then the intended victims drew weapons and began firing. The robbers ran from who they would later learn were officers with the Norfolk Police Vice...

    In a lawsuit against three Indiana government officials, a labor union alleged on Wednesday that its constitutional rights under the Thirteenth Amendment — which outlawed “slavery” and “involuntary servitude” — are violated whenever its members are forced to work alongside nonunion employees. The International Union of Operating Engineers, whose members work as heavy equipment operators, mechanics and construction surveyors, sued Indiana’s governor, attorney general, and labor commissioner in February, alleging that the state’s “right to work” law is unconstitutional. Indiana’s law prohibits employers from making union membership a condition of getting or keeping a job. The union’s February lawsuit claimed...

The bill, known as the Castle Doctrine, made it harder to prosecute or sue people who used deadly force against intruders inside their houses. But the Wisconsin legislators, urged on by the National Rifle Association in a series of meetings, wanted it to go further. They shaped an amendment that extended the bill’s protections to include lawns, sidewalks and swimming pools outside the residences, as well as vehicles...

    Plan on purchasing, owning, transporting and/or operating a firearm in your lifetime? Do not relocate to the state of Illinois. The state has one of the worst gun laws in the country and the Illinois Police and the Illinois Attorney General really need to stop pursuing innocent gun owners, sellers, and users, and pursue those who actually commit crimes that injure or harm others. Stemming from a public safety initiative, Illinois implemented a law in 1968 that says a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card must be issued by the Illinois State Police before a resident can possess or purchase firearms...

    (CBS/AP) WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. - A New Jersey 20-year-old and his teen friend are charged with aggravated assault after a video of them allegedly beating, taunting and stealing from a homeless man surfaced on YouTube.

The nominees, Sharon Block and Richard Griffin, are “clearly a boon for big labor,” the SenateRepublican Policy Committee said in blog post. “Considering the NLRB’s controversial actions over the last year, it is highly unlikely that Senate Republicans will confirm any additional board members — Republican or Democrat,” said RPC analyst Allison Dembeck. Mr. Griffin is general counsel for the International Union of Operating Engineers. He also has served since...

Living in Alaska, they had been very curious about my libertarian hideaway in southern Mexico (AcaCondos) and David had made plans to visit this December. That was, until, the FBI with 30 strong wearing body...

    JONESBORO, Ga. (CBS Atlanta) – Police charge two caregivers at a Jonesboro facility with waterboarding an 89-year-old woman.
