For the fourth time in as many cases, Baltimore prosecutors have failed to get a conviction in the Freddie Gray case. In a verdict announced Monday morning, Circuit Judge Barry Williams acquitted Lt. Brian Rice of all charges in the death of Gray, who died in police custody in April 2015.
Anti-gun police union leader demands the end of open carry in Ohio, and is appropriately rebuffed by governor John Kasich.
Following weeks of violent rhetoric from the Black Lives Matter crowd and other social justice warriors, the war on police has claimed more lives. Sunday morning saw three Baton Rouge police officer killed and three others injured in a shooting where police officers were — as in Dallas — the targets of a black shooter angry over the deaths of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota.

In an ABC News/Washington Post poll was conducted from July 6-7, a majority of those polled disapproved of the FBI’s recommendation not to charge Hillary Clinton with a crime for her handling of e-mail while she was secretary of state.

The rogue prosecutors behind the persecution of climate-change skeptics became embroiled in yet another scandal last week, this time getting caught conspiring to evade freedom of information laws to conceal their scheming from public scrutiny.
