    A startling home-made video now shows the terrifying moments where Watertown residents were forced out of their homes at gunpoint as SWAT teams performed door-to-door searches as they hunted the second marathon bomber. While millions of Bostonians waited in their houses on Friday during the city-wide lockdown, the people of Watertown were faced with SWAT officers yelling at them to get out of the buildings immediately. At the time, the Boston police department and federal agents were barely criticized, but now many are concerned about the dangerous precedent that could lead to more police searches using the rationale of ‘exigent...

    Via the New York Post, which has an account of their angry exchange at LAX, 15 solid minutes of hippie-punching goodness. Skip ahead to 5:30 for the meaty bits. She wrote an open letter to Penn last year unloading on him for his cretinous Chavista apologetics and I guess he must have remembered because allegedly the word “pig” ended up being thrown around during their chat — and not by Alonso. Quoth the NYP: Penn, traveling from Haiti, told us: “I only knew that a hostile woman was nonsensically berating me. I didn’t realize it was that actress. I think...

    Human rights groups have vowed to track George W Bush round the world after their success in forcing him to cancel a trip to Switzerland amid concerns over protests and a threatened arrest warrant. Katherine Gallagher, a lawyer with the New York-based Centre for Constitutional Rights, said: "The reach of the convention against torture is wide. This case is prepared and will be waiting for him wherever he travels next. "Torturers, even if they are former presidents of the United States, must be held to account and prosecuted." Although Bush has travelled freely round the world since leaving the White...

    The family of Jared Loughner barricaded themselves inside their Tucson home Monday and refused to allow FBI agents inside to continue an investigation into a deadly Saturday shooting, the Arizona Republic reported. Loughner, 22, was taken into custody Saturday after an attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) that left the lawmaker severely injured and six others dead. FBI agents attempted to gain access to the house at 12:25 p.m. Mountain time only to discover the family had erected a plywood barricade blocking access to the front porch. The family refused access to the agents, who banged on the barricade,...

    Eliot Spitzer and Kathleen Parker, the co-hosts of CNN's struggling 8 p.m. weeknight program, "Parker Spitzer," did some damage control in a New York Times piece last month to quiet rumors about how they've been at each other's throats behind the scenes. That flareup led to speculation that Parker might leave the show, but in the Times piece, Parker revealed she had just signed a two-year lease in New York, as if to say: "I'm not going anywhere."

That's what his parents wanted: it was the safe, secure route for a young man with working-class roots and a face few would describe as handsome.Postlethwaite had little going for him when he started in an industry where good looks - think Robert Redford or George Clooney - are valued. He had few connections, a name that was hard to pronounce, and could distinguish himself only by his talent.

    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (still known as ATF) is considering a pilot program that would require gun dealers in the borders states of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California to report each sale of two or more rifles. Jim Pruett of Jim Pruett’s Guns and Ammo in Houston considers such a move simply a back door to gun registration. “It [would go] on record with the ATF forever,” Pruett says of the reported sales. “There’s no mention of purging the system. So what you basically have is ad-hoc gun registration.” It is hard to argue with...

    While attending an event billed as "open to the public", conservative blogger Adam Sharp was harassed, roughed up and forcibly removed. His "crime"? Someone at the Washington University at St. Louis thought Sharp worked for Fox News, and didn't like the questions he was asking Van Jones - the main speaker at the event. Gateway Pundit reported that "several university officials harassed the citizen journalists at the event. One university thug even roughed up Sharp and grabbed for his camera." Van Jones was recently ousted from his White House position as the so-called "green jobs czar" after his admitted communism...

    Your tax dollars at work. Republican leaders are outraged that the Smithsonian Institute's National Portrait Gallery, funded by U.S. taxpayers, feature controversial exhibits. These include homoerotic artwork, picture of Ellen DeGeneres grabbing her breasts, and a video in which Jesus Christ is being eaten by ants. After hearing of the exhibit, outraged Georgia Rep. Jack Kingston, a member of the House Appropriations Committee, stated: “Absolutely we should look at their funds. If they’ve got money to squander like this – of a crucifix being eaten by ants, of Ellen DeGeneres grabbing her breasts, men in chains, naked brothers kissing –...

    A shooting on the city's Southeast Side has people telling two entirely different stories. Neighbors said an elderly woman was fed up with constant harassment from a 12-year-old boy, so she took a gun and shot the child after he and his friends threw bricks into her home. Now, the boy is charged with a crime, while the 68-year-old woman is not. The boy who was shot, along with another boy, 13, are cited in juvenile delinquency petitions with one count each of misdemeanor aggravated assault to a senior citizen, according to police

    NEW YORK – Alex Rodriguez became the youngest player to hit 600 home runs and did it with style, driving a pitch into Yankee Stadium's Monument Park in center field exactly three years to the day after his 500th homer.

Rodriguez connected with a 2-0 pitch over the middle of the plate for his 17th home run of the season, giving the Yankees a 2-0 lead on a sweltering summer afternoon. By hitting the homer into Monument Park, a stadium worker could retrieve...
