When it was announced on Monday that former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick had been convicted on 24 counts of racketeering, fraud, and extortion, the New York Times failed to mention that it could have been worse — if enough hard evidence had been found to pursue the former mayor's alleged ties to a murder.
In the aftermath of a bungled project, the Transportation Security Administration allowed airports to give security clearance to people without first doing background checks on them — and it has no idea who these people are.
In a military court on February 28, former Army intelligence officer Bradley Manning confessed to sending a record number of secret documents to Internet whistleblowing website WikiLeaks, but denied he had leaked any information to the enemy.
Even as the Obama administration continues to stockpile enough ammunition to kill every American multiple times, law-enforcement agencies were reportedly caught requesting so-called “no more hesitation” targets featuring pictures of children, pregnant women, mothers at playgrounds, and elderly people.

Alleged cop-killer Christopher Dorner, a Navy reservist and former officer with the Los Angeles Police Department who declared war on his former LAPD colleagues in a manifesto praising Obama and gun control, was confirmed dead by authorities on February 14 following a standoff with law enforcement ending Tuesday in a deadly blaze.

Another deputy was reportedly wounded during a shoot-out.
Following a series of similar widely ridiculed so-called “sting” operations, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced last week that it had foiled yet another “terror plot” that, like virtually every supposed “terrorist” case in recent years, was created and managed from start to finish by the FBI itself. This time, the dupe was a 28-year-old California man, Matthew Aaron Llaneza, with a documented history of mental illness, who apparently believed his government handlers were helping him wage “jihad.” Critics, however, say the whole scheme smacks of entrapment and a waste of taxpayer money.
The ex-Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officer accused of hunting down and murdering his former colleagues over alleged corruption, 33-year-old Christopher Jordan Dorner, released a “manifesto” online praising President Obama and the U.S. government while demanding more gun control.

Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), as well as media figures like CNN’s Anderson Cooper and extreme anti-Second Amendment zealot Piers Morgan.
