A statue paid for with pennies contributed by Baltimore school children more than a century ago was found sprayed with red paint Monday morning. Jennifer Arndt Robinson, executive director of Friends of Patterson Park, said the bronze statue of children holding a scroll to commemorate the writing of the Star Spangled Banner had been damaged by paint. The words “Racist Anthem” were sprayed on a sidewalk near the statue. “We were notified early this morning of the incident,” Robinson said. “We are working with appropriate city officials to make sure it is addressed as quickly as possible.” Robinson said a

Baltimore has become an s-hole.

My grand parents grew up in Baltimore (born in 1895). I guess the statue was probably a little after my grandparents time, especially since my grandfather was fighting in France in WW1 not long after that.

I can imagine that Baltimore was pretty decent back in those days, which are LONG gone.

"Freedom of expression" does not include property that does not belong to you or government property. No boundaries.

I don´t care if it´s kids or adults, it´s time to punish those damaging property that is not theirs. We are a nation with laws-not a s-hole.

Plenty of cities and towns would love to have this monument. It should be moved to where it will be appreciated.

There is an entire underclass of ´activist´ morons schooled by communists who are trying to kill us and everything beautiful about the United States. Like the Brownshirts they are happy to run amuck until they are no longer useful to the despots that encourage them.

Maybe these spoiled brats are heading for a real life and death showdown within their lifetimes. I hope they get it and get it good.

A doctor who performed a badly botched abortion that caused a patient to bleed to death was characterized by prosecutors on Tuesday as careless, greedy and someone who operated far outside the medical norm. A jury in Queens heard closing arguments in the case against Dr. Robert Rho, who was charged with manslaughter in the 2016 death of Jamie Lee Morales. The criminal prosecution of doctors over medical errors is rare, but Assistant District Attorney Brad Leventhal said Rho´s mistakes went beyond civil malpractice. During the operation, Rho severed Morales´ uterine aorta, ripped her cervix and pierced her uterine wall. Profuse

San Francisco — Though known for its compassion to the needy, San Francisco may have hit peak saturation with tent camps, stinky urine and trash littering the streets, and the new interim mayor has vowed to do something about it.

TIJUANA, Mexico — About 200 people in a caravan of Central American asylum seekers waited on the Mexican border with San Diego for a second straight day on Monday to turn themselves in to U.S. border inspectors, who said the nation’s busiest crossing facility did not have enough space to accommodate them. After a monthlong journey across Mexico under the Trump administration’s watchful eye, the asylum seekers faced an unexpected twist Sunday when U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said San Diego’s San Ysidro border crossing facility had “reached capacity.” The agency said in a statement on Monday

Black women face “high levels of anxiety” about their hair more often than white women, according to a 2016 “Good Hair” study by the Perception Institute. Hair texture, density and thickness, among other things, are common topics of discussion among women of color. There are charts that determine how curly or coarse one’s hair is and dedicated aisles in stores now that contain “ethnic” hair products. But these products are not found in hotels. While few consider this among the major social issues of our time, it has emerged as a topic of some debate thanks to a tweet last

MANCHESTER, N.H. - Enthusiasm for the Democratic Party is waning among millennials as its candidates head into the crucial midterm congressional elections, according to the Reuters/Ipsos national opinion poll. The online survey of more than 16,000 registered voters ages 18 to 34 shows their support for Democrats over Republicans for Congress slipped by about 9 percentage points over the past two years, to 46 percent overall. And they increasingly say the Republican Party is a better steward of the economy. Although nearly two of three young voters polled said they do not like Republican President Donald Trump, their distaste for him

Crying poverty amid decade-long stagnant salaries and Washington’s steep cost of living, an increasing number of House lawmakers have turned into professional squatters at night, hitting the sack in their Capitol Hill offices — on everything from cots in closets to futons stashed behind constituent couches — to save a few bucks during the work week. “Washington is too expensive,” said Rep.
