    The body of a missing pregnant mother has been found hours after her husband confessed to killing her and their two daughters after pretending to not know where they were for days. The body of Shanann Watts, 34, was found on Thursday at the Andarko oil and gas site where her husband Christopher works near their home in Frederick, Colorado. The bodies of the children's two daughters Bella, four, and Celeste, three, are yet to be found but police say they know where they are and are in the process of recovering them.

    CROWN HEIGHTS, BROOKLYN — New Yorkers who call 911 on law-abiding people of color are committing hate crimes and should be prosecuted, according to a state senator who was recently reported to police for campaigning in his own district. State Senator Jesse Hamilton, who represents Brownsville, Crown Heights and Flatbush, proposed new legislation a week after a self-described Trump fan called police to report him for speaking to constituents in public. It would criminalize 911 calls against people of color without evidence of malice. "That's gonna be a hate crime," Hamilton said. "This pattern of calling the police on black...

    Number One Idiot: I am a medical student currently doing a rotation in toxicology at the poison control center. Today, this woman called in very upset because she caught her little daughter eating ants. I quickly reassured her that the ants are not harmful and there would be no need to bring her daughter into the hospital. She calmed down and at the end of the conversation happened to mention that she gave her daughter some ant poison to eat in order to kill the ants. I told her that she better bring her daughter into the emergency room right...

    Sweden’s prime minister has promised to “go in hard” against masked men who set alight up to 80 cars in Gothenburg and other towns on Sweden’s west coast, in what police say appeared to be coordinated attacks. “I am really furious, what the hell are they up to?” Stefan Löfven on Tuesday morning. “Society will always act hard against this and we must continue to do so … We will do what needs to be done to take care of it and go in hard against this crime.” Sweden goes to the polls on 9 September with violent crime high...

    Tamar Braxton Responds to Delta Airlines’ Statement Rebuking Her ‘Unusual Behavior’ Wednesday, August 1, 2018 Tamar Braxton has responded to a Delta Airlines statement blaming her “unusual behavior” and her refusal to follow a flight attendant’s instructions during a recent flight. Tamar’s sister Towanda accused a Delta pilot of ridiculing Tamar after the pilot left the safety of the reinforced cockpit to deal with the part-time singer’s unruly behavior. “@tamarbraxton got ridiculed by a pilot for flying while black on Delta,” Towanda wrote in an Instagram post dated July 28. “Wow! I guess being a diamond and double million miler...

    The Real Reasons for Chicago's Deadly Crime Wave Jack Dunphy It is an accepted but lamented fact of life among police officers that in order to rise on the promotional ladder, one must endorse the political fashions currently in favor among the city’s politicians. And the higher one ascends on that ladder, the more convincingly one must do so. As a consequence, reflecting the governing principles of almost any city you can name, most police chiefs are liberals, or at least pretend to be with a passing level of feigned sincerity. As a result of this, the upper levels of...

    The Mises Institute ^ | 08/11/2018 | Ryan McMaken
    From crime rates to life expectancy to income levels, statistics at the national level are next to useless when it comes to measuring the daily lives of ordinary people in the United States. This is because the United States — which is a huge and geographically diverse country — is simply too large to be summed up in a single number. This sort of generalizing is inappropriate for pretty much any place that's larger than a single metro area, but it's especially bad when applied to a place like the United States. Even the larger European countries are much...

    The Los Angeles Police Department released surveillance footage Thursday of a taco truck robbery in the hopes that the public will be able to identify three suspects who robbed the truck's employees at gunpoint. In the video, three hooded men can be seen entering the food truck. One of them points a handgun at one of the workers, and then runs outside to force another worker back into the truck. The suspects then force the two employees to the ground, and one of the suspects can be seen striking a worker in the back of the head with his gun.

Many people have questioned what the point of Q really is, given that none of us are actually prosecuting the guilty parties and we don’t have the wherewithal to do so. So what is the point of Q and what is he doing here? If you are still reading this article, I believe this was precisely the point. If Trump, Q and their team already have all of the dirt needed to prosecute everyone for these terrible crimes, our part of this...

The police were patrolling in the area when the officer observed a strange license plate on the vehicle and decided to follow the car. The officer pulled behind the car but didn’t activate his lights. When the officer approached the car, he smelled burnt cannabis as the driver rolled down the window. The car had Arizona license plates and the driver produced a title to the car that had not been properly...

    This wasn't the first time Lewis had claimed a correlation between crime with football. In 2011, when NFL owners locked out the players, he told ESPN he believed crime would increase if the lockout lasted into the regular season. "Do this research if we don’t have a season — watch how much evil, which we call crime, watch how much crime picks up if you take away our game,” Lewis said.

    Did Pope Francis say he wants to let loose Rapists & Murderers like Ted Bundy in 2014? Not only does Pope Francis formally professed the heresy that "the death penalty is inadmissible," but he wants to let loose the Ted Bundys to rape and kill or is he senile or so out of touch with reality that he thinks rapist and murderers are miraculously going to stop raping and killing. [Francis formal heresy:] Bundy was a serial murderer and rapist who, also, tortured the victims and even engaged in necrophilia with their bodies.  If Ted Bundy had not received the death penalty and was instead...

    Police arrested a second suspect Thursday in a fatal shooting outside a north Atlanta country club as new details emerged about the leniency granted in an earlier case to the 17-year-old accused gunman. Jayden Myrick, who was arrested in the shooting last month, was “the big test case” for reforming juvenile offenders outside of adult prison, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Doris Downs told the teenager during a hearing on March 12, according to a transcript made public Thursday. Downs overruled a prosecutor’s insistence that Myrick was dangerous and a request to revoke his probation for an armed robbery he...

    Two years into the Trump administration, aggrieved activists are not only accosting Cabinet members or driving them out of restaurants -- they're increasingly taking out their frustration on inanimate objects. A burst of anti-Trump vandalism against possessions and property associated with administration officials is the latest flare-up in a “resistance” that has taken many forms. Last year, protesters marked the anniversary of President Trump's election by screaming at the sky. Lately, the tactics have become more confrontational, touching off a national debate over civility in politics. But smashing and spray-painting are yet another outlet. Here are some of the items...

    "If it wasn't for my artwork and God, there's no way we'd be having this conversation right now." I'm in Colorado on a three-way phone call with Valentino Dixon, inmate No. 91B1615 at New York's Wende Correctional Facility, and his 27-year-old daughter, Tina Dixon, a first-grade teacher in Ohio. Faith, family and drawing -- golf courses, jazz musicians, landscapes -- have kept him alive and sane behind bars. It has been a long, hard roller-coaster ride with "so many ups and downs" that he has learned to manage expectations while holding on to hope. Tina was a four-month-old infant when...
