Man with weapons and possible explosives arrested, was going to L.A. gay pride parade, sources say


LOS ANGELES: Authorities in Santa Monica found possible explosives as well as assault rifles and ammunition Sunday in the car of a man who told them he was in town for the L.A. Pride festival in West Hollywood, a law enforcement source said.

Early Sunday,  Santa Monica police received a call of a suspected prowler near Olympic Boulevard and 11th Street. Patrol officers responded and encountered an individual who told officers he was waiting for a friend. That led officers to inspect the car and find several weapons and a lot of ammunition as well as tannerite, an ingredient that could be used to create a pipe bomb.

The car had Indiana plates. The man made comments that he was in town for the Pride event in West Hollywood this weekend. The source said authorities did not know of any connection between the gay nightclub shooting in Orlando, Fla., early Sunday morning and the Santa Monica incident. The investigation has been taken over by the FBI. The source said the man appeared to be white.

A city official in West Hollywood also confirmed the arrest and stressed that officials were beefing up security at the gay pride event.

"They found him with weapons that were very disconcerting," said the source, adding officials are "taking the appropriate safety precautions."

The parade comes hours after the attack at the Orlando club that killed 50 people. At least 53 were injured in the deadliest shooting in modern American history after a gunman took hostages. The gunman has been identified as 29-year-old Omar Mateen, a U.S. law enforcement official said.

Perspective: 100 Parents Lost Their Child Last Night...

By Thornton Crowe

While some may have a rip roaring time demonizing our local politicians during this time of grave importance, remember: 100 Parents lost their child last night! 50 souls lost their lives - irrelevant is their sexual preference. This is the largest mass shooting in American history with victims being young!

Terrorism is something Americans need to start taking seriously as it's no laughing matter anymore. Orlando is a prime example of the very dangerous violence that lurks within our shadows and sometimes in blatant sunlight. Yet, many from the Left ostracize Trump for his proposed Muslim Ban.

Yes, I know, before you start to press comment, last night's perpetrator is a US citizen; however, someone had to know. Our PC-overkill culture has created upset and fear to turn people in - just like San Bernadino. People are leery to reveal what they know about a relative or neighbor or friend because they are fearful of being branded a Racist!

Hence, this election is more important than any other because the time has come for us to embrace, Radical Islam is ideological. This isn't an enemy that's merely in a civil war coup or arguments over nuclear disarmament. This is much worse.

Wake up, Eastern Shore! This country belongs to every legal citizen of it. It's time we stopped placating and start defending our own citizens.

The choice is now upon us...

1968?

Richard Nixon & Lyndon Johnson
By Thornton Crowe

Never was there a year so pivotal in our history...that is, until now.

Millennials weren't around in that fateful year but many baby boomers  remember 1968 well. Some of us were little kids but the year was so devastating in our history, it was even felt on a child's level. Many young ones, having no idea about '68, don't grasp when political pundits brings it up, how America was torn apart at the seams.

Chicago Rioters
Hippies of love provided a stark contrast because while love may have been abundant in the Haight-Ashbury culture, social unrest was everywhere else. Vietnam had become wildly unpopular. Two assassinations of prominent Political and Civil Rights heroes had come the Spring before the Democratic National Convention, which was fraught with violence in Chicago's streets. In short, the country was in turmoil - in every way possible.

Martin Luther King, Jr. & Robert Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination in April caused major disturbances throughout the black community everywhere. In Salisbury, the area where most of the black families lived, was ablaze for a couple days as they burned their homes down, which took many years to rebuild. Two months late, in June, Bobby Kennedy, running for the Democrat nomination was gunned down in Los Angeles at the infamous Ambassador Hotel. Ironically, it was Bobby who preached to the black community not to riot upon news of King's death. Both assassinations hit at the heart of America's youth and minorities as both King and Kennedy were their voice against the status quo.

Vietnam
President Lyndon Johnson, by this point, was unpopular with young men because every week, more and more were sent to Vietnam to fight a war many couldn't understand why we were involved. As the first televised war, every night at 6:00pm sharp, Vietnam came into every living room across the country, giving us horror images that have remained ingrained in our minds ever since.

After Johnson decided to not run for re-election, pandemonium reigned the months leading up to the DNC convention. And we all know it worked out; the summer's riots, many believe, have much to do with the outcome.


Presidential Candidates: Donald J. Trump & Hillary Clinton

As we now watch each violent riot unfold on our big flatscreens, we feel the same fears and apprehension felt in that tumultuous year many decades ago. With the brazen lawlessness, a sense of urgency as America spirals out of control with special interest groups taking us hostage with their chants while shutting down free speech - at least, speech they don't agree with - forcing themselves on us.

Is it the candidates' fault? Not really. This kettle started simmering when Obama began dividing people into categories; pitting one against the other. It also comes from local governments issuing stand down orders to its police force, thus, letting physical assaults and property destruction run rampant without consequence.

San Jose Rioters
America is, yet once again, at another fateful crossroads where we must decide whether to restore prosperity to all people rather than a chosen few or continue to spiral down into a country devoid of its sovereignty and the eradication of its 200+ year old Constitution, once and for all.

Is this the last election we'll ever have as a republic...or has the Silent Majority re-awoken?

How say you?

BREAKING: Police say 'around 20' killed in shooting at Orlando nightclub, more than 40 taken to local hospitals

BREAKING NEWS – Authorities in Florida said at a news conference Sunday morning that “as many as 20 people died” in a shooting at an Orlando nightclub. The gunman was killed.

Orlando Police Chief John Mina said at least 42 people have been transported to area hospitals.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement said officials are investigating the shooting as an “act of terrorism,” but it was unclear whether it was domestic or international terrorism, or if the shooter was a lone wolf.

Mina said officers were called to Pulse Orlando, a popular gay nightclub, at around 2 a.m. after reports of a shooting. He said officers were engaged in a gun battle outside the club before the suspect went back into the building where more shots were fired. He said the gunman then took several hostages.

Memo to Employees

TO: All County Employees
FROM: Michele Campbell Ennis, Ph.D., Director of Human Resources
DATE: June 06, 2016 

RE: County Employees and Retirees Benefits 

There have been numerous media publications regarding suggested compensation and benefit proposals for County employees and retirees. Much of the information being presented is not correct. In an attempt to properly communicate with County employees and retirees as to the accurate status of the County’s personnel system and compensation packages, it is my understanding the concerns are as follows: 

 County Personnel Manual: The 2003 Wicomico County Personnel Manual of Policies and Procedures (MPPP hereafter) is the County’s legislatively adopted employee personnel manual. The County Council has not adopted any revisions to the personnel manual. The personnel manual project is still in process for updating the 2003 MPPP based on employee feedback. The revisions are being submitted to the County Council, by chapter, upon the completion of any recommended revisions. 

 Employee Benefit Reductions: There have been no changes to County employee benefits. Furthermore, there have been no recommendations for any changes to employee benefits. 

 Health Insurance Rate Increase: The active County employee health insurance premium will increase 6.16%. Pre-Medicare retiree’s premiums will increase 14.86%. The increase in premiums are determined by the Health Insurance provider and are based on the members claim rates (actual cost of medical claims). In addition to negotiating a lesser increase in premiums (originally quoted to be over 10% for active employees and over 17% for pre-Medicare retirees), the County is inquiring on various wellness strategies to minimize future health costs without reducing the level of health coverage.

The overall insurance contract went up 6.16% for active employees and 14.86% for Pre-Medicare retirees. Of the total employee/retiree contract, the County will pay 85% and employee will pay 15% (individual coverage). The County will pay 75% and the employee will pay 25% for dependents. The County will pay $939,729 in health insurance cost increases.

 Medicare (over 65) Supplemental Retiree Health Insurance: The County was able to acquire a more enhanced supplemental health insurance coverage for the over 65 years of age Medicare primary retirees for nearly half the current cost. Human Resources has coordinated a meeting at the Wicomico County Civic Center on June 14, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. to educate the members and assist in enrollment. This benefit has not been reduced, it is much more affordable, and it is beyond comparable to the CareFirst coverage. 

 Compensatory Time: There have been no changes to compensatory time. Compensatory time is in accordance to the County Personnel Manual (2003). Compensatory time can be earned as follows: a) Exempt up to 80 hours; b) Non-exempt up to 240 hours; and, c) Law enforcement and Corrections up to 480 hours. The County Executive did eliminate Department Heads from accruing compensatory time as they are paid a set salary and are not governed by all provisions of the County Personnel Manual. The County Executive does have the expectation that the Department Heads will prudently manage compensatory and overtime. 

 County Employee Raises: County employees not governed by the collective bargaining agreement have been budgeted to receive a 3% salary increase effective fiscal year 2017. This raise was proposed before any finalization of health insurance premiums set by CareFirst (or any other benefit premium). Furthermore, the County has implemented the most recent compensation study based on job class over the last several fiscal years. In fiscal year 2014 the Correctional Officer compensation study was implemented to bring the Correctional Officer salaries closer to market. This upcoming fiscal year (2017), the County Executive proposes the implementation of the compensation study for Motor Equipment Operators, Crew Leaders, and Maintenance Workers. These positions were found to be nearly 30% below market. It is the Executive’s goal to continue to re-evaluate employee compensation through studies such as this in upcoming fiscal years in order for the County to increase our marketability and be able to recruit and retain the most qualified workforce. 

While there have been no direct inquiries to the Department of Human Resources regarding the accuracies of these concerns, I remind you that the Department of Human Resources has an open door policy to address any and all matters. However, must know the concerns before we can address them. We will make every effort to further educate all employees regarding any personnel matter. Please feel free to contact the Department of Human Resources at (410) 334- 3105 with any additional questions.

Please note: We are looking at the compensation for all departments throughout the County. However, departments will have to work with us as we can only, affordably, make adjustments to departments annually.

Should Johnny Really Go To College?


By Thornton Crowe

Little story. A few years ago, I needed an electrician to fix a faulty outside electrical socket after a hard rain. After much calling around (even to my neighbor who is an electrician,) I found getting this simple 10 minute task would have to wait for three weeks to get done. Finally, I found Mr. Bradshaw. He came over and fixed the socket, (bringing parts with so no down time)! Calling around was the biggest investment of my time that day -- over two hours of answering machines and Suzy automation. Sadly, Mr. Bradshaw passed away in 2013. Now what?

If you're a homeowner, you know finding people skilled in plumbing and electricity is very hard - especially on the Eastern Shore -- and quite expensive. While Bradshaw was very reasonable, the plumber I use charges me a king's ransom every time he comes to my house, regardless the issue.

So why am I bothering you on a Sunday morning with this story?

Goodson Attorneys Call For Dismissal Over Prosecutors' Meeting With Allen

On what was scheduled to be the first day of the trial of Baltimore City Police Officer Caesar Goodson, Judge Barry Williams is scheduled to hold a hearing this morning over whether the charges should be dismissed.

CLICK HERE to read the late filings in this case.

In a court filing dated Monday, but unsealed last night, Goodson's attorneys argue the charges should be dismissed because prosecutors had a meeting with Donta Allen, the second man who was loaded into the police transport van with Freddie Gray, and did not notify the defense.

Defense attorney Matthew Fraling argued prosecutor's actions violated Goodson's "constitutional rights."

Fraling argued that the Court found the prosecutors withheld evidence to the defense on two prior occasions and this is the "third strike."

Texas high school valedictorian reveals she is an illegal immigrant in her graduation speech

A Texas high school valedictorian has revealed she is an illegal immigrant in her graduation speech.

Larissa Martinez told classmates at McKinney Boyd High School that she was one of the 11million undocumented citizens living in the United States after she fled her abusive and alcoholic father in Mexico.

The 18-year-old, who has been offered a full scholarship to Yale, said she decided against giving her classmates the 'traditional Hallmark version' of the speech and instead opted for the truth.

The teenager told the crowd of thousands: 'Immigrants, undocumented or otherwise, are people too'.

'We are here without documentation because the US immigration system is broken and forces many families to live in fear.'

She also used the speech to slam Donald Trump's plans to build a wall based on 'hate and prejudice'.

All Of A Sudden

......and we are scared stiff of Donald Trump???

ALL Of A Sudden....Seven Short Years Have Passed!

Before Obama there was virtually no outlandish presence of Islam in America.

• All of a sudden, Islam is taught in schools. Christianity and the bible are banned in schools.

• All of a sudden we must allow prayer rugs everywhere and allow for Islamic prayer in schools, airports and businesses.

• All of a sudden we must stop serving pork in prisons.

• All of a sudden we are inundated with law suits by Muslims who are offended by American culture.

• All of a sudden we must allow burkas to be worn everywhere even though you have no idea who or what is covered up under them.

• All of a sudden Muslims are suing employers and refusing to do their jobs if they personally deem it conflicts with Sharia Law.

• All of a sudden the Attorney General of the United States vows to prosecute anyone who engages in "anti-Muslim speech".

• All of a sudden, Jihadists who engage in terrorism and openly admit they acted in the name of Islam and ISIS, are emphatically declared they are NOT Islamic by our leaders and/or their actions are determined NOT to be terrorism, but other nebulous terms like 'workplace violence."

• All of a sudden, it becomes Policy that Secular Middle East dictators that were benign or friendly to the West, must be replaced by Islamists and the Muslim Brotherhood.

• All of a sudden our troops are withdrawn from Iraq and the middle east, giving rise to ISIS.

• All of a sudden, America has reduced its nuclear stockpiles to 1950 levels, as Obama's stated goal of a nuke-free America by the time he leaves office continues uninterrupted.

• All of a sudden, a deal with Iran must be made at any cost, with a pathway to nuclear weapons and HUNDREDS of BILLIONS of dollars handed over to fund their programs.

• All of a sudden America APOLOGIZES to Muslim states and sponsors of terror worldwide for acts of aggression, war and sabotage THEY perpetrate against our soldiers.

• All of a sudden, the American Navy is diminished to 1917 Pre-World War I levels of only 300 ships. The Army is at pre-1940 levels. The Air Force scraps 500 planes and planned to retire the use of the A-10 Thunderbolt close air support fighter. A further draw down of another 40,000 military personnel is in progress.

• All of a sudden half of our aircraft carriers are recalled for maintenance by Obama rendering the Atlantic unguarded, NONE are in the Middle East.

• All of a sudden Obama has to empty Guantanamo Bay of captured Jihadists and let them loose in Jihad-friendly Islamic states. He demands to close the facility.

• All of a sudden America will negotiate with terrorists and trade FIVE Taliban commanders for a deserter and Jihad sympathizer.

• All of a sudden there is no money for American poor, disabled veterans, jobless Americans, hungry Americans, or displaced Americans but there is endless money for Obama's "Syrian refugee" resettlement programs.

• All of sudden there is an ammunition shortage in the USA.

• All of a sudden, the most important thing for Obama to do after a mass shooting by two Jihadists, is disarm American Citizens.

• All of a sudden, the President of the United States cannot attend the Christian Funerals of a Supreme Court Justice and a former First Lady because of previous (seemingly unimportant) commitments.

All of a sudden, I’m sick to my stomach. I’m not sure the majority of Americans recognize the seriousness of the situation and how much “progress” has been made by Islam these last 7 years, a very brief time compared to a 75 year lifetime!

Labor Department Accuses Enterprise Subsidiary Of Discriminatory Hiring Practices

An Enterprise Rent-A-Car subsidiary is being sued for race-based discrimination by the U.S. Department of Labor.

Enterprise RAC of Baltimore, LLC, a federal contractor, was targeted for a compliance review by the department. That found that the company engaged in racially discriminatory hiring practices and failed to maintain personnel and employment records pursuant to an executive order. They found that African-American and white job applicants were not treated equally, and black applicants were more likely to be rejected in initial screening and after the first interview. The department claims those practices are ongoing.

“All workers deserve a fair shot at equal employment opportunities and advancement,” Patricia A. Shiu, director of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, said in a statement. “Our action against Enterprise highlights our commitment to combating discrimination against qualified workers."

The government is asking an administrative law judge to order Enterprise to stop violating the executive order and the office's regulations, and to require them to provide relief to aggrieved African-American job applicants.

Soros Bets Against Europe While Funding The Mass Migration He Admits Will ‘Collapse’ The EU

The Wall Street Journal has reported that leftist billionaire and Democratic mega-donor George Soros, a convicted insider trader, has stepped back into trading personally in recent months, betting big on his view that Europe is underestimating the cost of the current illegal immigration crisis from Muslim-majority countries – at the same time he calls for increasing that cost and acknowledges groups he underwrites are pushing to worsen that crisis, the worst since World War II.

In October 2015, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán of Soros’s native Hungary charged that the Muslim-majority “invasion is driven, on the one hand, by people smugglers, and on the other by [human rights] activists who support everything that weakens the nation-state…perhaps best represented by George Soros,” according to a report in Bloomberg, “Orban Accuses Soros of Stoking Refugee Wave to Weaken Europe.”

Orbán stressed, “His name is perhaps the strongest example of those who support anything that weakens nation states, they support everything that changes the traditional European lifestyle.”

In response, Mr. Soros issued an email statement to Bloomberg Business saying his groups viewed “protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle.”

Teen killed when distracted highway cop slams into car

ORLAND, Calif. -- A California Highway Patrol officer was looking at his computer while driving when he crashed into a stopped vehicle in Northern California Tuesday, killing a 15-year-old boy.

According to CBS Chico affiliate KHSL-TV, the teen was a passenger in a Hyundai Elantra that was stopped in a construction zone on Interstate 5 near Orland, about 100 miles north of Sacramento.

Authorities said a CHP officer driving a mobile road enforcement truck down I-5 was looking at his computer but didn't notice the stopped traffic ahead in time to avoid a crash.

"When he looked up, traffic was slowing and coming to a stop, applied his brakes and rear-ended the vehicle that was in front of him, which subsequently got pushed into two other vehicles that were stopped," CHP Sgt. Tony Odell told the station.

Washington National Cathedral to Rid Windows of Confederate Battle Flag

The Washington National Cathedral, one of the nation’s most prominent houses of worship, said on Wednesday that it would remove two images of the Confederate battle flag that have been part of its stained-glass windows for more than 60 years.

The windows that depict the two flags were installed in 1953 to pay tribute to Gen. Stonewall Jackson and Gen. Robert E. Lee of the Confederate Army. The cathedral said in a statement that, while the flags will be removed shortly, the windows would remain to “serve as a catalyst for the difficult and uncomfortable conversations about race that we need to have on the road to racial justice.”

“Instead of simply taking the windows down and going on with business as usual, the cathedral recognizes that, for now, they provide an opportunity for us to begin to write a new narrative on race and racial justice at the cathedral and perhaps for our nation,” the Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas, the cathedral’s canon theologian, said in the statement.

Target CEO Stands by Transgender Bathroom Policy Despite $10B in Losses

Target CEO Brian Cornell defended the company's transgender bathroom policy decision to shareholders while also denying that the $10 billion in losses suffered since had anything to do with the controversial decision, Breitbart reported.

The new policy, instituted seven weeks ago, allows transgender men and women to use the bathrooms and changing rooms of the gender they identify with at all Target stores.

That decision has been the impetus behind a boycott of Target by about 1 million Americans.

"We're a company that believes strongly in diversity and inclusion," LifeSiteNews quoted Cornell at Wednesday's shareholder meeting in Costa Mesa, Calif. "We're a company that is very guest-centered."

Justin Danhof, director of the National Center Free Enterprise Project, attended the meeting and has been a vocal critic of the retailer's decision to open up bathrooms.

"Target's shareholder meeting was appalling from beginning to end," Danhof said. "Liberal corporate leaders such as Cornell throw around the words 'diversity' and 'inclusion' so much they are starting to lose their meaning."

‘DREAMER’ BRUTALLY RAPED WOMAN IN CHICAGO

CHICAGO, IL – An 18-year-old man and his friend allegedly raped and beat a middle-aged woman so severely in the basement of a Logan Square apartment building, her dentures fell out during the attack and she was left with a broken jaw, cuts and bruises.

The woman was found in a pool of blood ten hours after the sexual assault at the hands of the pair who she had met and played pool with earlier at the Two Way Lounge, according to Cook County prosecutors.

Judge Peggy Chiampas called the April 25 incident “brutal and heinous” and said detectives told her the woman “would never be the same.”

“Attack is not even an appropriate word for me to use in this case,” a visibly disturbed Chiampas said Friday before ordering Geovannie Collazo held without bond for aggravated criminal sexual assault and attempted first degree murder.

Collazo’s alleged cohort has not yet been charged.

Washington Schools to Teach Gender Identity Curriculum in Kindergarten

Kindergarten used to be a place for children to learn how to add, subtract, and read. Next year, Washington school children as young as five years old will instead be learning about gender fluidity and the differences between gender and sexual identity.

The newly-minted health and physical education standards, released by the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), will be implemented in schools across the state for the 2017-2018 school year.

As reported by The Daily Caller, the new standards require students to learn about gender identity and expression beginning in kindergarten.


Beginning in Kindergarten, students will be taught about the many ways to express gender. Gender expression education will include information about the manifestations of traits that are typically associated with one gender. Crossdressing is one form of gender expression.

Third graders will be introduced to the concept of gender identity. These children will be taught that they can choose their own gender.

Fourth graders will be expected to “define sexual orientation,” which refers to whether a person identifies as heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual; they’ll also be taught about HIV prevention. Children in fourth grade will be told that they can choose their sexual orientation.

Fourth and fifth graders will learn about the relativity of gender roles and why such roles are social constructs that are not inherent to who we are as male or female human beings.

Seventh graders will be expected to “distinguish between biological sex, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.”

High school students will critically “evaluate how culture, media, society, and other people influence our perceptions of gender roles, sexuality, relationships, and sexual orientation.”

DONALD TRUMP: STATEMENT REGARDING TRUMP UNIVERSITY

It is unfortunate that my comments have been misconstrued as a categorical attack against people of Mexican heritage. I am friends with and employ thousands of people of Mexican and Hispanic descent. The American justice system relies on fair and impartial judges. All judges should be held to that standard. I do not feel that one’s heritage makes them incapable of being impartial, but, based on the rulings that I have received in the Trump University civil case, I feel justified in questioning whether I am receiving a fair trial.

Over the past few weeks, I have watched as the media has reported one inaccuracy after another concerning the ongoing litigation involving Trump University. There are several important facts the public should know and that the media has failed to report.

Throughout the litigation my attorneys have continually demonstrated that students who participated in Trump University were provided a substantive, valuable education based upon a curriculum developed by professors from Northwestern University, Columbia Business School, Stanford University and other respected institutions. And, the response from students was overwhelming. Over a five year period, more than 10,000 paying students filled out surveys giving the courses high marks and expressing their overwhelming satisfaction with Trump University’s programs. For example:

GOP Senate candidate criticizes Trump comments about judge

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Maryland is criticizing Donald Trump’s comments about a Latino judge who is overseeing a lawsuit involving Trump University.

Del. Kathy Szeliga (shuh-LEG-uh) wrote on her Facebook page Monday that Trump’s comment about U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel “is insulting to all Americans.”

Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for president, has said Curiel’s Mexican heritage means he cannot ensure a fair trial, because Trump wants to build a border wall to keep people from illegally entering the United States. Trump University is accused in two lawsuits of fleecing students with unfulfilled promises to teach them secrets of success in real estate. Trump denies the allegations.

Szeliga writes that saying anyone’s ethnic background should disqualify them from public service “is, by definition, a racist statement.”

A new intersection design eliminates the dreaded left turn into traffic

Anyone who has ever made a left turn in a busy intersection understands that it can be a stressful maneuver. Not only do you have to wait impatiently for a break in the stream of cars coming the opposite direction, you often hold up a line of traffic, and even risk getting into a collision if other drivers aren’t following the rules of the road.

But despite how standard it may seem to turn left into traffic, that's actually not an inevitable part of driving. There's an intersection design that could save you all that trouble.

The “diverging diamond interchange” creates designated ramps that gradually direct cars to veer left or right, without ever requiring them to cross in front of ongoing traffic.

Though it might look complicated, it’s actually a simple concept. Say, for example, that you’re driving from west to east. As you come to the intersection, a red light may stop you as you let cars going the other way pass. (This is the only time streams of traffic cross each other.) If you want to turn right, a lane peels off and merges with the road carrying southbound cars. If you want to turn left, you just follow the ramp that veers to the north.

U.S. Cities See Unexplained Rise In Violent Crimes This Year

CHICAGO (AP) — Violent crimes — from homicides and rapes to robberies — have been on the rise in many major U.S. cities, yet experts can’t point to a single reason why and the jump isn’t enough to suggest there’s a trend.

Still, it is stumping law enforcement officials, who are seeking a way to combat the problem.

“It’s being reported on at local levels, but in my view, it’s not getting the attention at the national level it deserves,” FBI Director James Comey said recently. “I don’t know what the answer is, but holy cow, do we have a problem.”

Americans have grown accustomed to low crime rates since a peak in the 1990s. But law enforcement started seeing a spike last year that has continued unabated. What’s unusual, however, is that it’s not happening everywhere. Chicago and Los Angeles are seeing homicides on the rise, but other places like Miami and Oakland are not.

School Calls Sheriff to Force 7-year-old to Stop Sharing Bible Verses

PALMDALE, Calif. – Palmdale’s Desert Rose Elementary School faces potential litigation after school officials dispatched a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy to the home of a 7-year-old for sharing Bible verses during non-class time.

The Liberty Council, a religious liberties and education nonprofit law firm, recently sent a letter to school officials outlining “an outrageous violation of a first grader’s constitutional rights” stemming from Bible verses his mother, Christina Zavala, packed with the boy’s lunch.

The 7-year-old shared the daily Bible verses with his classmates, and many interested students requested their own copies, which Zavala happily provided along with short Bible stories for context, the Santa Monica Observer reports.

“However, when one little girl said ‘teacher – this is the most beautiful story I’ve ever seen,’ ‘separation of church and state’ was the response, and the notes were banned from lunchtime distribution,” according to the Liberty Council. The student, identified as “C,” “was told that the school gate was the only location at which he could give the Bible verses to his friends, and only after the bell rang.”

Zavala wrote school officials April 19 to protest the decision. She contends her son was called in front of the class and reprimanded – ordered to cease discussions about religion – in retaliation.

Regardless, C complied with the school directive and distributed the daily Bible verses to his friends outside of the school gate. School officials were apparently not satisfied, and principal Melanie Pagliaro approached the student’s father outside of the school May 9. The Liberty Council contends Pagliaro ordered the boy to move off of school property for the daily ritual, which continued to attract more of his classmates.
