Hamilton – One of two Hamilton men accused of pointing a gun at two children – one of them an 8-month-old boy – and threatening to put the infant in the oven during a home invasion earlier this month was out on bail on unrelated charges at the time of the incident. Prosecutors say McGhore Jean, 25, and Wicky Predvil, 22, robbed a family of more than $200, handbags and a tablet computer in their Second Street home in Trenton on July 12. (Snip) During a bail hearing this morning, prosecutors said Jean, 25, is no stranger to law enforcement,

Comments:
In New Jersey, known career criminals roam free, and unlike their victims-in-waiting, they have easy access to guns. "Gun control works in NJ," say the politicians.

Just about every item in the possession of Trenton households is already stolen - - so - - I don´t see why these two gentlemen should be considered criminals for retransferring the handbag and tablet locations.

If the original possessors want another handbag or another tablet - - they can simply go out and steal some more.

#2, you are correct that someone needs to take some responsibility for letting this animal out. I´m tired of seeing this type of garbage back on the streets because the judge feels sorry for him. Let´s start putting away the Judges that make stupid decisions along with the social workers.

In any other city 2nd street-2 blocks from the riverfront, walking distance from Broad Street shopping, near historic Mill Hill- would be prime real estate.
In Trenton it´s where you buy heroin.

These two men are from Haiti. Central America and Mexico are not the only ones sending crime and disease to OUR country.

What to do? What to do? How about increases in deportations, capital punishment, jail terms and number of jails as a start?

Hidden henge: Archaeologists discover
huge Stonehenge ‘sibling’ nearby
Independent [UK], by David Keys    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 9/9/2014 11:25:13 PM     Post Reply
Archaeologists have discovered that Stonehenge had a huge stone sibling just two miles to the northeast. Using powerful ground-penetrating radar, which can ‘x-ray’ archaeological sites to a depth of up to four metres, investigators from Birmingham and Bradford universities and from the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute in Vienna have discovered a 330 metre long line of more than 50 massive stones, buried under part of the bank of Britain’s largest pre-historic henge. “Up till now, we had absolutely no idea that the stones were there,” said the co-director of the investigation Professor Vince Gaffney of Birmingham University.

Lockport, N.Y. — One juvenile girl is facing charges and a second will be charged over a violent video posted online that shows a vicious beating in Lockport. (Snip) Officers say it appears the two girls befriended the victim and tricked her into coming to an alleyway called Works Place in the City of Lockport. Apparently, the victim knew her alleged attackers prior to the fight, but they attend different schools. The video shows the victim being pulled to the ground by her hair and being repeatedly punched and kicked in the face. One of her attackers repeatedly stomps on her head.

$213 million earmarked to track L.A.
homeless by computer, house 1,400
Los Angeles Times, by Gale Holland    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 9/9/2014 11:22:48 AM     Post Reply
A coalition of public and private agencies announced Tuesday that it is funneling $213 million to house 1,400 homeless people and to expand a tracking and placement system it hopes will end chronic and veteran homelessness in Los Angeles County over the next two years. The placement tool, called the coordinated entry system, is designed to replace a confusing patchwork of entry points to homeless housing and services with a single computerized portal that reaches every corner of the county. (Snip) The $213 million, up from $105 million the collaborative directed in 2012, and $120 million last year, was boosted

Half of North American bird species

Half of all bird species in North America — including the bald eagle — are at risk of severe population decline by 2080 if the swift pace of global warming continues, the National Audubon Society concluded in a study released Monday. "The scale of the disruption we´re projecting is a real punch in the gut," said Gary Langham, chief Audubon scientist. (Snip) By 2080, the bald eagle, the national symbol of the United States, could see its habitat decrease by 75%, the report says. All of the habitat of the common loon, the state bird of Minnesota, could disappear in the lower 48

Two women were arrested after they robbed and then intimidated three tenants out of their Brooklyn apartment — and the crime was partly motivated by race and class resentment, law enforcement sources said. Precious Parker, 30, and Sabrina James, 23, knocked on the door of an apartment building on Ocean Ave. near Newkirk Ave. in Flatbush at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday and held a 34-year-old man, a 37-year-old man, and a 25-year-old woman at gunpoint demanding they move out or be killed, police said. The women then stole $800, an iPhone and personal information

Washington — Panera Bread on Monday asked customers not to bring firearms into its restaurants, joining a growing list of retail and fast-food chains that have declared their establishments gun-free zones. The company said it wants to ensure that "customers and associates feel comfortable and welcome” in its restaurants. “We ask that guns not be brought into this environment unless carried by an authorized law enforcement officer," the eatery chain, which boosts 1,800 locations in the United States and Canada, said in a statement Monday. "Panera respects the rights of gun owners, but asks our customers to help preserve

Detroit is so broke that firefighters get emergency alerts through pop cans, coins, door hinges, pipes and doorbells. And they make these gizmos themselves — one involving a pop can that gets tipped over by an incoming fax. The clink of the can means there’s an emergency. Then there’s the chain-reaction gadget: a fax hits a door hinge, which then tugs on a wire, which then sets off a doorbell. “It sounds unbelievable, but it’s truly what the guys have been doing and dealing with for a long, long time,” said Detroit Deputy Fire Commissioner John Berlin, adding that technological

Newark — An unidentified male was gunned down in Newark Saturday night, the third slaying in less than 48 hours in the state’s largest city. Newark police found the victim dead on Bergen Street, between Clinton and Madison avenues, after responding to reports of a shooting around 9 p.m., Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray and city Police Director Eugene Venable said in a statement. (Snip) The shooting came after two other killings in the city Friday night into early Saturday, authorities said. Those incidents were apparently unrelated. Tyquil Whitehead, 18, was shot and killed in Newark’s North Ward around 10 p.m.,

For years, Christina Marshall was convinced she would start her own company. She studied entrepreneurship at USC´s business school with the hope of launching a clothing company for full-figured women. But after graduating two years ago, the 31-year-old chose a more conventional career as a brand manager at Kraft Foods in Chicago. (Snip) The image of the U.S. as bursting with entrepreneurial zeal, it turns out, is more myth than reality. In truth, the rate at which new companies are being formed has fallen steadily for more than three decades. The decline has occurred nationwide — even in Silicon Valley.

Sitting at her street vending booth with products arrayed neatly on a sequined purple tablecloth, Jackie Lloyd reflects nostalgically on the days when she had a steady salary and regular hours. That was four years ago, before the 39-year-old was laid off from her job as an elementary school cafeteria worker and mounting bills forced her to venture into self-employment. Now the Pico-Union resident hops from location to location, selling body oils, shea butter, soap and incense. She moves when nearby businesses complain or she feels unsafe. Some days, her sales bring in $150.

A former USC professor once on the FBI´s 10 Most Wanted fugitives list pleaded guilty Friday to flying to the Philippines and having sex with several underage boys he groomed online. Walter Lee Williams, 65, admitted engaging in illegal sexual contact with minors in foreign places, entering the plea during a brief appearance before U.S. District Judge Phillip S. Gutierrez. As part of a plea, federal prosecutors agreed to recommend that the onetime eminent professor of gender and sexuality studies serve no more than five years in a federal prison. He also would be subject to 10 years supervision upon release

State Department spokesman Jen Psaki makes me psick. If you read P.G. Wodehouse, you know the “P” in her name is silent, as in “phthisis,” “psychic” and “ptarmigan” (as Wodehouse’s Psmith explains). And Psaki’s colleague Marie Harf makes me barf. Together Psaki and Harf give the catastrophic foreign policy of the Obama administration a lighter than air, Valley Girl kind of feel. It’s a novel use of expressive form. Paul Mirengoff explores their weightlessness in the adjacent post. As Paul recounts, Harf came to the defense of Psaki when Bill O’Reilly had the temerity to utter pslightly pscathing words about Psaki

Less than 48 hours ahead of a planned address to the nation on how the U.S. plans to combat Islamic State terrorists operating in Iraq and Syria, President Obama dined at the White House Monday with a slate of foreign policy experts. Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State John Kerry were joined by some of Washington’s most established foreign policy hands, including Clinton National Security Adviser Sandy Berger and Zbigniew Brzezinski, who held the same position during the Carter administration. Former Obama national security adviser Tom Donilon was also at the dinner, as was former Undersecretary for Defense Policy

The beatings of three people in a Kroger parking lot Saturday night will not be investigated as a hate crime, according to police officials. Memphis Police Department director Toney Armstrong said he’s had lots of calls asking how the investigation would proceed but said there is “not sufficient enough evidence to investigate this as a hate crime.” “I know this has a lot of racial undertones,” Armstrong said during a news conference Monday at Memphis City Hall. “I’ve gotten a lot of calls and I know (Memphis Mayor A C Wharton) has as well.

This morning, New York Times reporter Kim Severson spiced up her obituary for Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy by tagging him "a symbol of intolerance" who presided over a "restaurant chain [seen by some] as a symbol of hate." Here´s the relevant excerpt (emphasis mine): When he introduced himself, S. Truett Cathy often played down his job. “I cook chicken for a living,” he would say. And on the surface, that was true. Mr. Cathy, who died on Monday at 93, was by all appearances a humble Christian man from Georgia with little education who sold a simple sandwich: a

The Obama administration will make a decision on executive action to prevent corporations from leaving the country in the "very near future," Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said Monday morning. Speaking at an event on business taxes at the Urban Institute in Washington, Lew placed the responsibility on Congress to address so-called tax inversions, but said that the administration was prepared to step in if lawmakers don´t move quickly enough. Inversions are tax maneuvers in which corporations buy firms in low-tax countries in order to place their headquarters in that country. Such deals have grown in number in recent months, with

Megyn Kelly tonight brought viewers the first part of her contentious showdown with Professor Ward Churchill, best known for his controversial comments about the “little Eichmanns” who were in the World Trade Center when the planes hit on September 11th. Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under
