It has been 25 years since Los Angeles literally went up in flames. It was a horrific scene—buildings on fire, sounds of windows breaking and sirens from emergency vehicles, and people shouting “No Justice, No Peace.” The all-white jury in the Rodney King case returned with a verdict of not guilty, acquitting four white LAPD officers of excessive force. The date was April 29, 1992. By now, the videotape of King, lying on the ground while cops beat him until he was nearly unrecognizable, had been played so many times on television that the wedge between cops and L.A.s black…
A San Francisco judge has said “no” to President Trump’s executive order to reduce federal funding to so-called sanctuary cities. The ruling temporarily blocks efforts to force localities to cooperate with immigration enforcement. Judge William H. Orrick of the United States District Court said only Congress could place such conditions on spending and that the president has overstepped his boundaries.

LAPD Police Commissioners approved a new use of force guideline on Tuesday will change the way force is used by officers in Los Angeles. The emphasis on de-escalation, a tactic meant to reduce incidents of police-involved shootings by first employing non-lethal maneuvers whenever possible. The new policy is summarized in just one sentence. However it will have far reaching implications on police conduct and how officers engage with suspects. The one sentence which will be…
Twenty years ago, before I was aware of the overtly racist and totally biased Fox News, I remember my wife’s uncle ranting and raving about how much he hated Bill O’Reilly. Then, I began paying attention to O’Reilly’s racist rants and the station’s daily dose of conservative propaganda. I couldn’t believe how Fox allowed their anchors to just say whatever they wanted, and present it as “news” without a shred of proof. Today, I woke up to the glorious good news that O’Reilly has been fired, and all I can say is, it’s about time! He was fired on allegations…

A second explosion was caused by a suicide bomber who tried to storm St. Mark's Cathedral in the coastal city of Alexandria, and left at least 17 dead, and 48 injured. The blasts…

The self-described “hothead” worked as a bodyguard during the early years of his brother’s comedy career.
