(Video) NAACP President Cornell William Brooks said he was "concerned" about the forthcoming grand jury decision in the Michael Brown shooting case because the prosecutor failed to act upon previous complaints about the Ferguson, Missouri police department and didn´t give the jurors sufficient instructions. "We have a prosecutor who had five complaints filed with the Justice Department concerning his police department, by the NAACP, he failed to take action, this was before Mike Brown. He then conducts a grand jury, a process where he essentially dumps evidence into the laps of the grand jury with little direction.

Two North Side girls are in isolation at Nationwide Children’s Hospital as health officials await Ebola test results that aren’t expected for several hours. The girls, 4 and 6, recently traveled to West Africa with their 30-year-old mother and had been monitored daily by Columbus Public Health for 17 days since their return, spokesman Jose Rodriguez said this morning. The girls developed high fevers overnight and their family notified health officials about 1 a.m. today, he said. When Columbus Public Health last checked in yesterday morning, the girls had no symptoms, Rodriguez said. Test results for Ebola and respiratory

On Friday, we posted a Gary Varvel cartoon at indystar.com that offended a wide group of readers. Many of them labeled it as racist. Gary did not intend to be racially insensitive in his attempt to express his strong views about President Barack Obama´s decision to temporarily prevent the deportation of millions of immigrants living and working illegally in the United States. But we erred in publishing it. The cartoon depicted an immigrant family climbing through a window of a white family´s home as Thanksgiving dinner was served. I was uncomfortable with the depiction when I saw it after it was



A Brief Criminological Comment
on Bill Cosby and Bill Clinton

Bayes’ Rule (a simple algebraic transformation of Bayes’ Theorem that converts probabilities into odds) supplies the appropriate guidance with respect to how recently announced evidence against Bill Cosby should update our belief with respect to his guilt or innocence. The Rule says that, broadly speaking, we should update our beliefs via a likelihood ratio that is formed by dividing the probability that X number of women (substitute for X however many women have testified against Cosby) would lie if Cosby is guilty by the probability that X number of women would lie if Cosby is innocent. The language “broadly speaking”

´Shame on us´ for not passing

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday said Republicans are partially responsible for not passing comprehensive immigration reform. “Shame on us as Republicans for having a body that cannot generate a solution to an issue that’s national security, that’s cultural, that’s economic,” Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” The Senate has passed an immigration bill three times, Graham said, adding that he “loves” his GOP colleagues in the House. “I’m close to the people in the House, but I’m disappointed in my party. Are we still the party of self-deportation?” he asked. President Obama in a separate interview Sunday blamed House Speaker

They didn’t see a comedian. They saw the “king of the world.” Long before there was a Dr. Cliff Huxtable, before rumpled sweaters and a collective anointing as America’s dad, Bill Cosby was magnified a hundredfold in the eyes of the young models and actresses he pulled into his orbit. For them, he embodied the hippest of the 1960s and ’70s Hollywood scene, a mega-star with the power to make somebodies out of nobodies. He partied with Hugh Hefner and was a regular at the magazine mogul’s Playboy Mansion bacchanals. He co-owned a restaurant and hit the hottest clubs. He sizzled. Those wild, largely forgotten days clash

President Obama took a thinly veiled shot at Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential aspirations on Sunday, saying American voters want that “new car smell” and “something that doesn’t have as much mileage as me.” “I think the American people, you know, they’re going to want — you know, that new car smell,” Obama told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. “You know, their own — they want to drive something off the lot that doesn’t have as much mileage as me.” When asked about Clinton’s potential 2016 run, Obama said he was prepared for Clinton to attempt to distance herself from his administration.



Clues to Chief Justice John Roberts´
thinking on new ObamaCare case

The Supreme Court´s surprising decision to hear a new challenge to the Affordable Care Act once again has focused attention on Chief Justice John Roberts, who cast the deciding vote in a 2012 decision that saved ObamaCare from being declared unconstitutional. (snip) It seems entirely possible that Roberts might focus narrowly this time on the snippet of the act extending subsidies only to those insured by exchanges “established by the state.” One argument he might make in defense of that position is that Congress has the ability to go back and fix any unclear language through a revised statute.

President Obama, acknowledging he´s taken some political "dings" during his time in the White House, said in an exclusive interview with ABC News that the American people will want that "new car smell" when it comes to the 2016 presidential campaign, suggesting he may not have a prominent role on the campaign trail as the country prepares to select his replacement.

MOSCOW — Vladimir Putin has said he won’t remain Russia’s president for life and will step down in line with the constitution no later than 2024, according to an interview with a Russian news agency released Sunday. Staying beyond that would be “detrimental for the country and I don’t need this,” he told the Tass news agency. Putin, 62, has effectively led Russia since he was first elected in 2000. He stepped aside after two four-year terms to abide with constitutional term limits, but retained power as prime minister and was elected in 2012 to a six-year term. Putin said his decision on whether to run for a fourth term in 2018 will

Tunisia took another step forward in its peaceful transition to democracy by holding its first free presidential election, with voters hoping for more stability and a better economy. Many Tunisians weighed security against the freedoms brought by their revolution and by its democratic transition, which has remained on track in sharp contrast to the upheavals brought by the Arab Spring elsewhere in the region, including the brutal military coup in Egypt and the conflicts in Syria, Yemen and Libya. It hasn´t been easy for Tunisia, however, and the nearly four years since the revolution have been marked by social unrest,

Zimbabwe´s Mugabe tightens

HARARE - Zimbabwe´s president Robert Mugabe has changed the constitution of his ruling ZANU-PF party to allow him to directly appoint his deputies, giving the 90-year-old sole power to anoint his successor, party sources said on Sunday. Until now Mugabe and his two ZANU-PF deputies have been elected by members from the country´s 10 regions. The deputies automatically took up the same posts in government. The changes to the ZANU-PF charter enacted at an all-night meeting of its politburo give Mugabe an even tighter grip at a time when deputy president Joice Mujuru has been accused of plotting to oust

VIENNA- Iran, the United States and other world powers are all but certain to miss Monday´s deadline for negotiations to resolve a 12-year stand-off over Tehran´s atomic ambitions, forcing them to seek an extension, sources said on Sunday, confirming that a final deal is still far off. "Considering the short time left until the deadline and number of issues that needed to be discussed and resolved, it is impossible to reach a final and comprehensive deal by Nov. 24," Iran´s ISNA news agency quoted an unidentified member of the country´s negotiating team in Vienna as saying.

Two articles illustrate two different attitudes. The article which demonstrates valuing civility and fairness above all is presented by Peter Shuck’s New York Times piece on why “The Impeachment of Obama on Immigration May Be Legal — But It’s Wrong”, referring to his amnesty of illegal aliens by executive order. Shuck says Congress may have good grounds to file an impeachment but it would be impolite, cause discord, sow resentment and generally lead to unpleasantness. Therefore don’t do it. (Snip) In contrast to Shuck is a piece by William Greider in the Nation which lays out the case for Chief Justice John Roberts’ head.

SAS troops with sniper rifles and heavy machine guns have killed hundreds of Islamic State extremists in a series of deadly quad-bike ambushes inside Iraq, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. Defence sources indicated last night that soldiers from the elite fighting unit have eliminated ‘up to eight terrorists per day’ in the daring raids, carried out during the past four weeks. Until now, it had been acknowledged only that the SAS was operating in a reconnaissance role in Iraq and was not involved in combat. But The Mail on Sunday has learned that small groups of soldiers are being

The D.C. City Council issued a statement confirming Barry´s death.

No cause of death was immediately specified, but spokeswoman LaToya Foster said Barry collapsed outside his home. Barry had battled kidney problems stemming from

Cosby´s Accusers´ Claims
Are Full of Holes

Since the media has decided to bombard me with stories of Bill Cosby´s alleged rapes, I believe that I have a right to examine his accusers´ claims. As each new woman surfaces and recounts her alleged sexual assault by him, I am left with more questions than answers. I am not suggesting that Mr. Cosby is not guilty of adultery, however; the media and his accusers are claiming that he is a serial rapist. So far, I have not seen any evidence to prove their claims. Even his accusers say that they do not remember being raped. All that some of his accusers claim to remember is being given two pills (that they take of their own free will)

After committing a long list of well documented crimes against the people of the United States, the man – and I use the term advisedly – occupying the White House and the formerly respected office of President, has finally topped his shameful list with the penultimate political felony, treason. With clear knowledge that declaring his so-called amnesty for millions of criminal invaders – including countless murderers, rapists, child molesters, violent thieves, pimps, prostitutes, drug dealers and addicts, virtual slavers, and terrorists – is a totally unconstitutional act, and therefore, totally illegal, Marxist revolutionary Barack

Last Saturday in Gouda, Holland, the police arrested as many as 90 people, the majority of whom were protesting against "Black Pete", part of a traditional pre-Christmas children´s street party. We don’t normally associate a Santa Claus celebration with police arrests, so this requires a little explanation. Black Pete (Zwarte Piet in Dutch) is a blackface character in Dutch and Belgian folklore. He is the clownish helper of St Nicholas (Sinterklaas) in delivering presents to children. In the Netherlands, the Sinterklaas festival lasts for weeks culminating on Saint Nicholas Day, 5 December, and starting with the arrival of St Nicholas

As time goes on, President Obama is becoming much more provocative with the GOP. For example, he met with congressional Democrats, but no Republicans, then announced his long awaited plan for executive amnesty, giving 5 million illegal immigrants a pathway to work permits and relief from possible deportation for 3 years. After getting shellacked in the mid-terms, Obama has not compromised with Republicans, he moved further to the political left. It was an audacious announcement that was both unconstitutional and confrontational. It circumvented Congress, and their vital role in this issue, and was, thus, radically different

Peter Wehner made Mark Levin the target of his work at Commentary lately, as an extension of his zeal to cast G. W. Bush as more of a conservative than Reagan was, and label numerous prominent conservatives as “purists” in desperate need of moderating their tone. Levin, rejecting the notion of being lectured to by a Bush grandee responded, correcting Wehner and calling attention to his aptitude for cherry-picking facts so that he can knock down prominent conservatives, and conservative causes. Peter Wehner arrived in Washington D.C. in 1983, and never left. He was hired by Bill Bennett as a speechwriter

Having been clobbered in the midterms, the president put on his cockiest face and strut, and in a carefully orchestrated setting designed to make him look imperial poked a thumb in the eye of the newly-elected Congress by announcing that he would not deport the people he was already not deporting. The next day the House of Representatives sued him for overreaching on ObamaCare, but despite a lot of understandably outraged yammering, it is not likely to follow suit or at least succeed in similarly challenging on constitutional grounds his immigration executive order. True, at the heart of both of these is the president’s inability and

Doc Huxtable looks into the camera and says: I play a doctor on TV, but in real life I’m a mad rapist. What? You don’t think that commercial would fly? Yes, yes, I know that Bill Cosby only played Dr. Huxtable on TV, but for those of us who couldn’t
