The girlfriend of a man shot and killed Friday by police in Warrior, Alabama is speaking out.
“It’s a bunch of bulls***,” Arealle Funches said. “My boyfriend’s life got taken away for no reason. My baby is only a year old. She will never know her father.”
Boyfriend Adam Madison was riding with Funches and their one-year-old daughter when officers stopped them during a driver’s license checkpoint on Warrior-Trafford Road near Star View Lane.
OTTAWA — Prime Minister Stephen Harper, speaking to Parliament Thursday one day after a gunman rampaged through the ornate building, said Canadians "will not run scared" and proposed tightening police and surveillance procedures to go after terrorists.
In a dramatic opening of the session, Kevin Vickers, the sergeant-at-arms who traditionally leads the MPs into the chamber, received a sustained and emotional round of applause for his quick action on Wednesday in fatally shooting the gunman.
There’s nothing nice about jail. The food stinks. There’s nothing to do. People are in a bad mood. The best you can hope for is to get out quickly with minimal hassle. One of the few things you have to look forward to is a visit from a friend or a loved one—a brief face-to-face connection to remind you that the world is waiting on the other side of the glass. But some Texas jails are eliminating in-person visitation and requiring instead the use of a video visitation system sold by Dallas-based Securus Technologies.
North Attleboro, Massachusetts will continue to prohibit children playing games in the street after attempts to change the relevant bylaw failed despite many of the town's residents questioning whether police have more pressing laws to enforce.
Town Selectman Patrick Reynolds introduced the change to the bylaws, which prohibit playing “any game in which a ball or any other object is used, fly any kite, or throw stones, missiles or other objects in any street, public way or sidewalk,” the Attleboro Sun Chronicle reported.
Over the past year, the Seattle police department has revised its policies on when police can use force, as part of a settlement with the Justice Department over findings that officers used frequent excessive, unconstitutional force on suspects.
A group of Washington overlords—federal prosecutors—sometimes break rules and wreck people's lives. President Obama may soon appoint one of them to be America's next Attorney General.
The prosecutorial bullying is detailed in a new book by Sidney Powell, Licensed to Lie. She reports that the Department of Justice's (DOJ) narcissistic and dishonest prosecutors destroy people by doing things like deliberately withholding evidence.
WASHINGTON -- White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough is personally negotiating how much of the Senate's so-called torture report, a probe into the CIA’s post-9/11 detention and interrogation program, will be redacted, according to sources involved in the negotiations.
McDonough's leading role in the redaction discussion has raised eyebrows in the Senate, given that his position comes with a broad array of urgent responsibilities and that the Obama White House has a team of qualified national security advisers.
This week the helicopters that were sent off to Iraq and Afghanistan to protect us here at home were flying around downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul. The Blackhawk helicopters were here on “urban training exercises” rattling the windows of residents’ condos, homes and apartments right here at home in Minnesota.
Sen. Rand Paul has warned Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) that he will place a hold on one of President Obama’s appellate court nominees because of his role in crafting the legal basis for Obama’s drone policy.
Paul, the junior Republican senator from Kentucky, has informed Reid he will object to David Barron’s nomination to the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals, unless the Justice Department makes public the memos he authored justifying the killing of an American citizen in Yemen.
On a bright Thursday afternoon in 2007, Jennifer Boatright, a waitress at a Houston bar-and-grill, drove with her two young sons and her boyfriend, Ron Henderson, on U.S. 59 toward Linden, Henderson’s home town, near the Texas-Louisiana border. They made the trip every April, at the first signs of spring, to walk the local wildflower trails and spend time with Henderson’s father. This year, they’d decided to buy a used car in Linden, which had plenty for sale, and so they bundled their cash savings in their car’s center console.
A few weeks ago I noted a new California law, prompted by Elliot Rodger's murders in Isla Vista last May, that lets police officers and "immediate family members" (possibly including angry ex-girlfriends and estranged in-laws) seek court orders stripping people of their Second Amendment rights without any notice or adversarial process. New York's SAFE Act, which was hurriedly passed by the state legislature last year in response to the Sandy Hook massacre, in some ways goes even further.
