    HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. (CBS4) — A former Englewood police officer has been sentenced to 30 days in jail after pleading guilty to sexual contact without consent. Anna McCain, 24, pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor in January. Other counts against her were dismissed as part of the plea agreement. The victim said that after a night out, a group of people, including McCain, went to the victim’s home in Highlands Ranch. She said McCain was the last to leave. After the others left, the victim said McCain tried numerous times to initiate sexual contact. The victim said she told McCain no...

    A toddler and a 10-year-old girl were among 14 people shot to death in Chicago in yet another weekend of gun violence that has rocked the city over the past month. Between Friday and Sunday morning, a total of 52 people were shot in Chicago, according to police department records. "As a mother, I am tired of the funerals. I am tired of burying our children," Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot tweeted, adding that the city was in the throes of a "gun violence epidemic." The latest carnage in the Windy City comes just a week after more than 100 people...

According to Deputy Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan, the shooting took place after the two teens and a friend had a brief encounter with Battle, whom they did not know, in a corner store. "The victims commented, because, since Battle is quite tall, and they...

    An Englewood man is accused of killing two teenagers last weekend after they noted how tall he was while they bought candy at a gas station in South Shore. Laroy Battle, 19, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and possession of a controlled substance, Deputy Chief Brendan Deenihan said at a news conference Thursday. Jasean Francis, 17, and Charles Riley, 16, were “very good kids from really excellent families,” Deenihan said. They had gone to a gas station Saturday afternoon in the 7900 block of South Luella with a third friend to buy candy when they ran into...

    Chicago police are questioning two suspected gunmen after 13 people were wounded, four of them critically, during a shooting inside a large memorial gathering early Sunday in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side, authorities said. About 12:40 a.m., a house party - celebrating what would’ve been the birthday of a man who also was a victim of gun violence - was held in the 5700 block of South May Street. Around that time, someone inside opened fire, sending 13 people to area hospitals with gunshot wounds, according to Chicago police. Those shot ranged in age from 16 to 48,...

    Two women involved with a group called Mothers Against Senseless Killings were shot dead Friday on a South Side Chicago block where moms gather to help curb gun violence. Police say they don't believe the two young mothers were the intended targets. The deaths of Chantel Grant, 25, and Andrea Stoudemire, 35, in the Englewood neighborhood served as a grim reminder of the kind of violence that led them to participate in neighborhood activities organized by Mothers Against Senseless Killings. The anti-violence group launched five years ago following the shooting death of another young mother at the same corner. The...

Both women were hit by gunfire at the corner of W. 75th Street and S. Stewart Ave. that is often occupied by members of the group Mothers Against Senseless Killings. The group hoped their constant presence at the corner would help break the cycle of violence.

    Babb stopped short of confirming that the bright, white dot spotted by numerous News Center 7 viewers was indeed a DARPA balloon, however another spokesperson for DARPA said given the location it was likely one of their balloons. Sightings of the object were reported Tuesday to News Center 7 from viewers in Xenia, Englewood, West Milton, West Carrollton and Eaton. DARPA’s ALTA program’s balloons can fly at altitudes of more than 75,000 feet. “While they do not have independent propulsion, the ALTA vehicle is designed to navigate by changing altitude and thus taking advantage of different wind profiles aloft,” according...

    Over a third of young adults in Chicago — especially African Americans — want out of this city, citing racism, fractured police-community relations, neighborhood disinvestment and lack of jobs and economic mobility, a new study finds. The University of Chicago’s GenForward Project surveyed African-American, Asian, Latinx and white young adults from 10 diverse neighborhoods, and found 36 percent want to leave the city — but as high as 46 percent in challenged neighborhoods like Englewood. “We know that young people, especially millennials, are now the largest generation. They comprise the largest share of the workforce and eligible voters. To think...

    His commutation of Blago will confirm that Trump knows all about 3D justice: Diversion-Distraction-Disinformation President Trump will commute former Illinois Governor Rod “Blago” Blagojevich’s prison sentence in time for Blago to be home for Christmas, after 6-plus years in the Federal Correctional Institution at Englewood, Colorado. When it happens, the reaction from the two major newspapers in Chicago is predictable. The Chicago Tribune and the Sun Times, but particularly the “Trib,” will be apoplectic. Hints to that response have surfaced.

    Planned Parenthood Referred Sex Traffickers to Shoddy Abortion Center Trenton, NJ -- During the discussion captured on video of a Planned Parenthood staffer helping alleged sex traffickers obtain abortions for young women, the staffer referred them to another abortion facility to better conceal the abortions. However, the abortion center in question has a shoddy history and once put a woman in a coma after a botched abortion. http://www.lifenews.com/2011/02/02/planned-parenthood-referred-sex-traffickers-to-shoddy-abortion-center/

    Metropolitan Medical Associates in Englewood, among the state’s largest abortion clinics, reached a $1.9 million settlement with a woman who suffered massive hemorrhaging, a coma, a stroke and a hysterectomy after she had an abortion at the facility in 2007.  The incident led to an inspection by the state, which shut the facility down for more than a month until improvements were made.  The settlement includes $1 million from the facility, $575,000 from one of the doctors involved in the case and $325,000 from another doctor who had assisted. The settlement was first reported in the New Jersey Law Journal.Rasheedah...

    Sarah Palin so completely traumatized Weather Undergrounder Bill Ayers in 2008, he is still talking about the former vice-presidential candidate seven years later. In a March 18 Publishers' Weekly interview at Hyde Park's Seminary Co-op bookstore, Ayers injected Mrs. Palin into the conversation. It seems he still can't forget a governor from Alaska who dared to expose his fellow traveler at a private fundraiser on October 4, 2008 in Englewood, Colorado:. VP Candidate Sarah Palin, 2008: Our opponent, though, is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect, imperfect enough that he’s palling around with terrorists who would...

    I’ve raised in prior posts (here and here) the issue of physical security of the clintonemail.com e-mal server, which is why were it was located and how it was set up matters. Last night, Mitch LaKind — who has experience setting up secure military e-mail servers — wrote me about the detailed issues surrounding Clinton’s approach. I’ll let him speak for himself (emphasis mine, though): As a former contractor to the Air Force, I personally managed the Microsoft Exchange servers that were installed at Thule Air Base. My experience with Microsoft Exchange goes back to 1997, when the earliest versions...

    Activists on Friday protested the reopening of an abortion clinic here shut down in February after state health officials found "immediate and serious" health code violations. As part of their protest, the activists deployed a motor home equipped with ultrasound equipment across the street from Metropolitan Medical Associates and offered pregnant women who approached the clinic free images of their fetuses. The activists believe the images will persuade women to reconsider having an abortion. On Friday, 16-year-old Michelle Younger of Jersey City was one of them. The teen, who arrived with her mother, said she had an appointment at the...

    A startling video released today by Jeremy Segal (“Rebel Pundit”) of Breitbart.com shows inner-city Black Chicagoans expressing outrage against President Obama, union racism, and the Democratic Machine, whom they say no longer represent their agenda. Further, when money is directed at their community, it is funneled through so-called community-based organizations and nonprofits or unions, and never touches the residents themselves. Community resident Paul McKinley says, “Everything in Chicago is controlled by the Democratic party. Everything in my community is controlled by Black Democrats. There is no Tea Party in my community. There is no Republicans. So they can’t blame the...

The Syrian-born Rezko is an infamous Chicago slumlord, fast-food restauranteur, and sleazy political operator who played a key role in the Blagojevich case- as well as the unlikley ascension to power of Barrack Hussein Obama.Obama's longtime ally, friend, and top fundraiser was found guilty of 16/24 counts of felony influence peddling back in June 2008. Of course the story was mostly buried/detached from his bud Barry in the run-up to that year's most unfortunate (for us) presidential election whilst the jury convicted Rezko of wire...
