A report released on March 26 by the Justice Department’s inspector general reveals that agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) are alleged to have had sexual encounters with prostitutes hired by drug cartels.
Officials in Colorado will not likely bring murder charges against a woman who cut open another woman’s abdomen, removed her baby, and left the baby girl in a bathtub. The attacker’s husband found the girl and rushed her to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Until a thorough investigation is completed, it will not be known if the baby died during the removal from her mother, or afterward.
In the name of fighting crime, both state and local governments seize Americans’ personal cash and private property, even when the citizens are never charged with anything.
Under the guise of “restoring trust” between communities and police departments that have been militarized by the federal government, the Obama administration's Justice Department announced this month that it had selected six U.S. cities to serve as pilot sites, to develop and deploy federal guidance for local police to create better procedures, reduce racial bias, and regain citizens' trust.
The plan, which is controversial because it is in line with Obama administration plans to further nationalize and federalize local law enforcement, has been officially dubbed the “National Initiative for Building Community Trust and Justice.” It will use U.S. taxpayer dollars to deploy “experts” and “researchers” charged with training officers to act in a manner that the DOJ deems just — in essence doing the bidding of the Obama administration. Officially, the Justice Department will be helping local officials “fight crime” under the scheme, according to news reports.
John Geer wasn't the wrong color to be shot by police — but he was the wrong color to receive attention for it.
The Obama administration and its “Task Force on 21st Century Policing” are under fire after unveiling an unconstitutional plot to impose federal “standards” on state and local police forces, which critics say is in effect an underhanded plan to further nationalize and federalize law enforcement. Widely lambasted as “Common Core” for police, the Obama plan outlines dozens of controversial “recommendations” to be foisted on state and local law-enforcement agencies using federal tax dollars as bribes — the same unconstitutional process used to impose the hugely unpopular national “Common Core” standards on states and schools nationwide. Opponents say it is part of a dangerous long-term plan that must be opposed.
Barely plausible denials aren't enough to cover the fact that Hillary deliberately broke the law while Secretary of State.
After the Department of Justice accused the Ferguson Police Department of racial bias, the FPD now finds itself in a pickle, facing three unsavory, even impossible, alternatives to the status quo.
Imprisoned evangelist Kent Hovind, a well-known advocate of biblical creationism who has been behind bars for 100 months on tax and “structuring” charges, is on trial once again. The federal government is now pushing to have him locked up for life on charges of “mail fraud” and “contempt of court.” In a telephone interview with The New American magazine from prison in the Florida panhandle over the weekend, Dr. Hovind argued, as his large and vocal group of supporters does, that he is being persecuted for his faith and his preaching — that the government and his detractors are essentially “shooting the messenger” because they do not like the message he preaches from the Bible. Anti-Hovind activists and the government say there is no persecution going on.
The Chicago police department runs a “black site” detention facility where detainees are “disappeared” and kept out of contact with family and lawyers at a warehouse on the city’s west side called Homan Square, according to a report published Tuesday by the London newspaper The Guardian.
