All homicide victims are black in Ark. capital

Theyre solving their differences, whatever they may be about, with violence. Richardson said the rash of black-on-black crime should be treated by officials as an abnormality, and warned that not creating a sense of urgency surrounding the issue sends a disturbing message to a certain segment of our population. Its out of whack. Its disproportionate. Its unacceptable. It has to be treated as an aberration rather than a norm, Richardson said.

She later sued military officials, alleging that they permitted a culture in which victims of sexual assault are accused of having asked for it when they seek justice. Her lawsuit was dismissed. Military-service academies seem to sit between worlds. Technically theyre military installations. But they have many characteristics of a college campus: classes, sports, residential students.

Conn. officials tell gun owners to relinquish or destroy banned assault weapons

But the new pleas were shared by the New York Times and are expected to enter into court at Fort Bragg tomorrow morning. Sinclair’s guilty plea will ostensibly absolve him of the sexual assault charges, instead reducing his plea to sexual misconduct, among other more minor charges. The new guilty pleas expected to be entered Monday include disobeying a commander’s order not to contact his mistress, using demeaning language to refer to female officers and using a curse word when confronted about that conduct, and misusing his government travel charge card.

Chris Pine Arrested For DUI In New Zealand!

He was reportedly stopped for a routine check, which led to his DUI arrest. We hear the wrap party at Blue Pub Methven finished up around 3 a.m., and while many cast and crew members had designated drivers, Chris apparently decided to drive himself. Chris’ girlfriend, Iris Bjork Johannesdottir, was reportedly in town for the party, but we’re not sure if she was with him when he was arrested. He is now due in Ashburton district court on Monday, March 17th.

N.y., N.c. Consider Changes To Juvenile Justice Laws

New provincial laws have had great success shutting down drug dens, but critics question why they circumvent the criminal code

Dean Bicknell / Calgary Herald

“We are not saying young people should not be incarcerated,” Hartzog said, explaining that instead her group believes young people should be housed with people their age and with similar offenses.
