This past week, a black mother in Baltimore discovered her 16-year-old son, covered by a hoodie and a mask, participating in the riot that shook the city. So she chased him down, cursed him and beat him as a bystander captured the scene on video. Once it was posted, the consensus online, in social media and on cable TV held her up as a hero. A still from the video graced the cover of the New York Post with this headline: “Forget the National Guard .?.?. send in the moms.” In this country, when black mothers fulfill stereotypes of mammies,

Freddie Gray´s Death Ruled a Homicide

The death of Freddie Gray has been ruled a homicide caused by severe trauma. Gray, 25, was taken into police custody in Baltimore on April 12 and sustained a spinal injury during that time that required medical attention. He went into a coma several days later and died a week after his apprehension. Police have never said why they took him into custody in the first place, noting only that he ran from officers, and they have not publicly explained how Gray received the spinal injury. Violent protests rocked Baltimore on Monday afternoon and through the night, prompting hundreds of

The six officers accused in the death of Freddie Gray face a litany of charges that include second-degree depraved-heart murder, involuntary manslaughter, false imprisonment and misconduct in office. The officers — three white, three African American — represent a broad spectrum of experience on Baltimore’s police force. Three of them joined the force three years ago. The driver, who faces the most serious charges, is African American and has been on the force since 1999. One officer had his weapons confiscated after a former girlfriend contacted the Carroll County sheriff’s office to say she feared for his safety. The officers

Why Do So Many People Hate the

You know Hillary Clinton’s voice, right? I mean, you know it. It’s just so loud and annoying. Or maybe it´s like a nagging wife. Or inauthentic—that phony Southern accent! Those flat Midwestern vowels! Whatever it is, her voice is burned into your brain. Now think of Jeb Bush’s voice. It’s so—wait, what does it sound like again? He sounds just ... like a guy, maybe? It´s probably hard for you to recall distinguishing features about most of the Republican candidates. (Snip)If you watch old clips of Clinton from the 1992 campaign, she is presenting herself in a much more feminine

This is the first officer to be pictured out of the six cops charged over the death of Freddie Gray. Officer Edward Nero, 29, is facing 10 years in jail for allegedly assaulting the 25-year-old before he suffered a severe spine injury and died. The married father-of-one, who is also charged with misconduct in public office, joined the Baltimore Police Department in 2012. He will face trial alongside five colleagues, whose charges range from assault to manslaughter and murder, after the Maryland State´s Attorney, Marilyn Mosby, declared Gray´s death was a homicide, and there is probable cause to file criminal

Because the rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer, according to Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) A CNN anchor asked Ellison on Thursday, "How do you explain what is going on in Baltimore this week?" "Well, of course, excessive police officers and staggering unemployment go together," Ellison responded, "because what we´ve done in the United States, as we´ve said, that the affluent part of our society is going to demand more tax breaks, more wealth, more privilege, leaving less for the less fortunate, and the way we keep the less fortunate in control is through policing and prisons.

Presidential hopeful and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum showed some support for Bruce Jenner at the South Carolina Republican Party’s convention Saturday. Santorum, a staunch social conservative, told reporters he believes Jenner when he says he is a woman. “If he says he’s a woman, then he’s a woman,” he stated during a roundtable with reporters at the convention. He continued: My responsibility as a human being is to love and accept everybody. Not to criticize people for who they are. I can criticize, and I do, for what people do, for their behavior. But as far as for who

As a sort of farewell present to the city he adopted as his political base but will leave for more glamorous New York City after his presidency, the Barack Obama Presidential Library is to be built on parkland taken from the citizens of Chicago. Unless, that is, Republican Governor Bruce Rauner vetoes a bill authorizing the transfer of city-owned park acreage to the library. Dahleen Glanton and Rick Pearson of the Chicago Tribune explain: President Barack Obama has selected the University of Chicago to host his library and museum, sources have told the Chicago Tribune.

Over the past several months, Mediaite has produced a handful of posts asking the question: Where is Fox’s The Five co-host Bob Beckel? He was last seen on-air on Monday, February 16, and for many weeks we received immense search traffic from readers looking to find out the liberal pundit’s whereabouts. In our first report, we noted that Fox told us Beckel was out receiving and recovering from back surgery. However, our own sources at the network indicated there was more to the story, including possible addiction (as cable watchers know well, Beckel is open about his drug history). And

Alan Dershowitz Rips Charges Against

Alan Dershowitz really went after Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby today for charging the six cops involved in the death of Freddie Gray, saying it was entirely based on politics and “crowd control.” Dershowitz lamented that “this is a very sad day for justice” and told Steve Malzberg that Mosby acted out of a “desire to prevent riots.” It will be “virtually impossible,” he predicted, for the six officers involved to get a fair trial. And as for murder charges, Dershowitz said there’s “no plausible, hypothetical, conceivable case for murder” and “this is a show trial.” He predicted that Mosby

RALEIGH, N.C. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Friday that he trusts the legal process that resulted in charges against six Baltimore officers in the death of a man from injuries sustained while in police custody. But a president, said the likely 2016 Republican candidate, could do more to address rising anger toward police in poor neighborhoods. "I think we need, as a nation, to have a conversation about why is it that we´re creating these big pockets of poverty," he said. Speaking shortly after charges were announced in Freddie Gray´s death in Baltimore, Bush said "the process works,

President Obama´s weekly remarks Hi everybody. I’m speaking with you from the DC Public Library in Anacostia, where I just met with a group of promising middle school students. We spent some time talking about their lives, and how we all care about their success — and how that starts with a good education. So one thing I announced here in Anacostia is a new project by libraries and major publishers to provide more than $250 million in free e-Books for low-income students.
