    Who wasn't shocked and disheartened by yet another tragic mass shooting, this time in Aurora, Colo.? Like millions of Americans, my wife, Gena, and I send our heartfelt condolences and prayers to the victims of this murderous spree and their families. We, too, commend the heroes who gave their lives to save others. Truly, every victim of this reprehensible executioner is in some way heroic, for the victims were injured or died in the midst of a culture war in which even our theaters and schools have become battlegrounds. Moreover, we salute and support the Colorado peace officers, emergency...

I feel like this tiredness has awakened us to really do something," said Pastor Paco Amador of the New Life Community Church in Little Village.

    During a Friday morning ABC News segment, Stephanopoulos interviewed a man named Christopher Ramos, who was inside the Aurora theater in Colorado on Thursday night. Toward the end of the interview, when Ramos started to break down crying, in effect reliving the horror show he had survived, he said something I found to be incredibly revealing. "I see this on TV -- a shooting in a mall or a shooting in a bookstore," he said. "I see it but I actually don't feel it. ... It was the first time I saw something that was real." The reason I found...

    Hollywood consistently churns out movies that are filled with very graphic and gory violence. While I'm not blaming them for what this sick killer did, let's face it: we live in a culture that embraces violence. How do we embrace it? By paying our hard earned money to see movies where people are shot with guns, mutilated, killed and blown up on a regular basis.

    If I were 10 years old, would I be badgering my parents to take me to see the new Batman film, The Dark Knight? You bet I would. It's the latest and biggest release in the superhero genre, which children instantly understand as a direct appeal to their special interests. It's also touched with the alluring suggestion of forbidden fruit: the maniacal, deranged face of The Joker, grippingly played by the late Heath Ledger, leers from posters all over town. If I were the parent who relented and took a 10-year-old child to see The Dark Knight, would I be...

The police do not protect the Christians or take action against the perpetrators; in the end, they reprimand the Christians and instruct them to leave. Ever since, there has been no coverage of this outrageous event in our media. Nor has CAIR or any other Muslim organization denounced the Muslims who abused the Christians.

    Black mob violence has taken on a new note in Portland, Ore. It’s not the unsuspecting passersby or the corner convenience store that’s the target here. It’s Nordstroms. Just weeks ago, a group of 10-15 hoodie-wearing blacks allegedly stole clothing and raced out of the store. Their actions were captured on video. So far, the evidence makes it looks like just one more of the hundreds of episodes of racial lawlessness that have taken place in more than 60 cities over the last three years. But on a local forum, the reaction gave the situation a truly unique flavor: “As...

While lots of statistics and examples were thrown around by this Editorial Idea no definition of gun violence was offered. Words like homicide, murder and attacks were used but there was no mention of people defending themselves from attempted homicide, murder or attacks. The obviously intended insinuation is that every instance of gun usage is an act of "gun...

Sometimes right in front of police. A lot of it on YouTube. With lots of witnesses – 15 to 20 times over...

No matter the victims or perpetrators, this is a rather alarming prediction for a locally elected official to make. Beal warned, “I’m trying to help you help yourself. When I say that, problems could arise.

Neighbors say Owens confronted the kids as they chased their ball. "We said we're sorry," says David Dinkins, one of the kids playing. "He said 'get the F out of the yard!'"

    Black-on-black crime is a sensitive subject in this increasingly polarized nation. While covered in academia and occasionally addressed by talking heads on television, some believe it rarely, if ever, receives the type and depth of attention it deserves. Instead, critics argue that this national tragedy is usually swept under the rug by powerful interest groups and individuals more concerned with elevating their own racially-driven agendas than addressing the real issues at hand. The Trayvon Martin case is only the most recent example of this grim hypocrisy. Indeed, statistics support a very different narrative than the one usually offered by “race...

    Just finished my annual online "Human Relations" training and had to come to FR to vent. Guess what the first example listed of "workplace violence" was? Right: Maj Hasan at Ft Hood. These people have the unmitigated call to lump this traitorous murdering coward in with incidents that involve love triangles and disgruntled employees. I wish I thought anybody with any clout would care about my outrage, but they'd probably want to start keeping an eye on ME...

    CNS News ^ | 4/3/12 | Penny Starr – Black-on-black violence is a “disease” that deserves a “national investigation,” Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter told a Youth Violence Prevention forum in Washington on Monday. “It is a disease,” Nutter said. “It’s a rash, and if there were a rash killing a hundred and some odd young people on a daily basis we’d be doing something about it.” Nutter said tainted food gets more attention than young people killing each other: “If there were five bad bags of spinach on the shelf somewhere, someone would put out a national alert. Every bag would be snatched off the shelves until...

    Yesterday morning, Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to President Obama, spoke at the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention. There, she touted Obama’s record on youth violence in Chicago: As a mom, it just breaks my heart when I hear stories of young people who fall victim to gangs, drugs, and crime – President Obama, the father of two young girls, feels the same way. The President will never forget the tragic story he heard, in 2009, from our hometown of Chicago. A 16 year-old honors student named Darrion Albert was walking home from school.

    Of the many roles Pat Robertson has assumed over his five-decade-long career as an evangelical leader - including presidential candidate and provocative voice of the right wing - his newest guise may perhaps surprise his followers the most: marijuana legalization advocate. "I really believe we should treat marijuana the way we treat beverage alcohol," Mr. Robertson said in an interview on Wednesday. "I've never used marijuana and I don't intend to, but it's just one of those things that I think: this war on drugs just hasn't succeeded."
