During the weekend of Aug. 4-5 (and the preceding Friday night), 12 Chicagoans were shot dead, and 62 others were shot and wounded, the Chicago Tribune reported. Before last week's mayhem, 1,718 Chicagoans had been shot since the beginning of the year, and 306 had been murdered. Adding to this tragedy is the fact that Chicago's clearance rate is less than 15 percent.



Syfy’s new series Krypton tells the story of Superman’s grandfather Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe) on his home planet of Krypton. It takes place approximately 200 years before that planet's destruction and follows their alien culture. That being said, the show apparently still has the time to shoe-horn a police brutality scene for us present-day Earthlings, as if any of us were begging for it.



As the Oklahoma attorney general's office fights to keep hidden from public view the results of secret hearings on the DNA science flaws and falsehoods in former Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw's case, two prominent experts have stepped forward to shed bright light on the government's myriad mind-boggling failures.



CBS premiered season 8 of their popular police drama Blue Bloods Friday, September 29, with a rollercoaster of surprises and emotions. But it was their defense of police officers, as well as God and family that pulled on the heartstrings the most.



Wednesday night’s episode of NBC’s The Carmichael Show, “Shoot-Up-Able,” which revolved around a mass shooting, was predictably anti-gun and anti-police. The episode was supposed to air June 14, but got pulled due to the shootings in Alexandria, Virginia and San Francisco that day. After Jerrod (Jerrod Carmichael) survives a mall shooting that resulted in 4 people getting killed, including the shooter, his family gathers to help him cope. But what starts as a humorous conversation about the identity of the shooter (a “29-year-old woman born and raised in the United States”) turns into a swipe at Republicans and the NRA for “blocking sensible gun legislation time and time again.



Lock your doors. Hide your children. Police officers, be on alert: Al Sharpton's cop-bashing circus is back in full swing. Harlem's godfather of racial hoax crimes is in Oklahoma this week to stir up trouble as jury selection begins in the manslaughter trial of Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby.



The second episode of Fox's Shots Fired, “Hour Two: Betrayal of Trust,” which aired on March 29, continued to perpetrate the false narrative that police harass and deny justice to black people. After a church service for the deceased white teenager, Jesse Carr, African American Pastor Janae bemoans his death to the press before adding that the death of an unarmed, black teenager, Joey Campbell, has gone uninvestigated. 



Lynne Stewart, whose long legal and illegal career included representing domestic terrorists in the 1980s and relaying a convicted Islamic terrorist's commands to his underlings last decade, died on Tuesday. The Associated Press's Larry Neumeister went out of his way to conceal and sanitize important aspects of Stewart's life and beliefs in his Wednesday afternoon obituary.



Ordinary black people cannot afford to go along with the liberal agenda that calls for undermining police authority. That agenda makes for more black crime victims. Let's look at what works and what doesn't work. In 1990, New York City adopted the practice in which its police officers might stop and question a pedestrian. If there was suspicion, they would frisk the person for weapons and other contraband. This practice, well within the law, is known as a Terry stop. After two decades of this proactive police program, New York City's homicides fell from over 2,200 per year to about 300.



Minutes after President Trump concluded his remarks on Thursday afternoon at the GOP retreat, MSNBC Live host Craig Melvin informed guests and viewers that it was “awkward” and he felt “uncomfortable” that Trump and a member of the audience blamed the violence in Chicago on Democrats. 

 



Evidence that leftist bias has deeply infected local and regional news coverage arrived in the form of the "Top Stories of 2016" poll results at the Associated Press last week. In an exercise performed since 1936, the AP's "annual poll of U.S. editors and news directors" asked participants to identify the top 10 stories of 2016. "Black Men Killed by Police," referring to the controversial killings of two black men by non-black cops, made it to Number 3. "Attacks on Police" (note: not "Murders of Police"), which took "at least 20 lives," only got to Number 6. Rising crime in the U.S., including an increase exceeding 50 percent in homicides in Chicago, didn't make the list, and appears not to have even been a close runner-up.



On Friday’s Good Morning America, anchor Robin Roberts interviewed President Obama and the First Lady from the new addition to the Smithsonian, the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Roberts used the museum’s theme as a starting point to ask the president what the thought about the rioters, looters and protesters in Charlotte, North Carolina. Except Roberts didn’t set it up like that. Instead, she compared the rioters to the Civil Rights Movement, and called them “Young people rising up and showing their frustration."
