Mayhem erupts during a "free admission" day following an argument in the Africa section of the zoo. Is that racist?

As KC Mo. builds grand structures downtown, hosts the Final Four and pushed for light rail & a grandiose new airport, the dem pols in leadership continue to permit & minimize danger posed by the frequent teen disturbances on the Plaza & other public areas, including the zoo, due to the lack of parental role models, ethical guidance & supervision, harming the very lives of these youths and the future of the city.

FTA: "Mayor Sly James emphatically said Wednesday that "we had young people who were misbehaving badly." "
I´m confused. Does ´misbehaving badly´ mean they were quietly sitting on a bench, not knowing how to properly misbehave?
Or does ´misbehaving badly´ mean misbehaving and being caught?
Someone please explain.

Because they are accused of hurling racial epithets at two white men before beating them, five black males were charged Tuesday with ethnic intimidation and other crimes in the May beating of Jonathan Deters, son of Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters. "We believe the sole motivation (for the alleged attack) was because of the color of their skin," Assistant Ohio Attorney General Daniel "Woody" Breyer said of the incident.

The Washington Redskins have stuck with their name and logo for years, despite ardent and escalating protests by Native American organizations and their supporters. Even the U.S. Patent Office weighed in this year, calling the logo “disparaging.” Now, Franklin Lakes is thinking about changing its own longstanding depiction of a Native American on its letterhead, business cards, vehicles and website. But this time, it’s the Ram­a­pough Lenape Nation — the closest tribe to the borough — that is objecting. “There is a vast difference between using a dignified image that represents the native people and using a logo that shows a caricature

A New Jersey man who murdered a police officer in cold blood over the weekend astonishingly is being hailed as a hero by members of the community who have erected a make-shift shrine - complete with candles and empty liquor bottles - in his honor. Lawrence Campbell was fatally shot by police after he gunned down 23-year-old rookie Jersey City police Officer Melvin Santiago outside of a Walgreen´s pharmacy early Sunday morning.

Fort Sill, Okla. - A Republican congresswoman from Tennessee said the U.S. should cut aid to countries that are home to thousands of children who have crossed the border illegally to pay for the cost of caring for them. Rep. Marsha Blackburn made the comments Saturday after touring a temporary shelter at the Fort Sill Army Post near Lawton where more than 1,100 of the children are housed. Republican Rep. Jim Bridenstine of Oklahoma also toured the facility. Blackburn said Central American countries that the child immigrants are fleeing should be forced to bear the cost of paying for them

New York — A banner aiming to change people´s minds about what swastikas stand for has stirred outrage after it flew over beaches in New York City and on Long Island. Some beachgoers were appalled and officials fielded complaints after a plane toted the banner Saturday. The banner featured swastikas, a peace sign, a Star of David and a "pro-swastika" message. It was arranged by the International Raelian Movement.

A Jersey City cop was killed in a cold-blooded ambush outside a Walgreens Pharmacy early Sunday by a violent nutjob who had boasted, “I’m going to be famous,” officials said. Officer Melvin Santiago, less than a year on the job, and his partner rolled up to Walgreens to answer a robbery call at 4:09 a.m. when the gunman came out of nowhere and blasted Santiago in the head as he opened the passenger-side door. Minutes earlier, shooter Lawrence Campbell, 27, stabbed the store security guard in the arm and took his gun, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said. Campbell then apologized to everyone in the store and said, “Watch the news later,

Middle-class families should stop buying large fridges in order to save energy and tackle climate change, a government-commissioned report has suggested. Families could save up to £36 a year on their electricity bills by replacing large fridge-freezers or televisions with smaller appliances, according to a study published by the Department for Energy and Climate Change. The report found that the average family fridge had grown in volume by two fifths since 1985, amid a fashion for large American-style appliances, while the average television had grown by more than seven inches since 2004.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
