Abused kids die as authorities fail to protect

Abused childrenAt least 786 children died of abuse or neglect in the U.S. in a six-year span in plain view of child protection authorities — many of them beaten, starved or left alone to drown while agencies had good reason to know they were in danger, The Associated Press has found.

To determine that number, the AP canvassed the 50 states, the District of Columbia and all branches of the military — circumventing a system that does a terrible job of accounting for child deaths. Many states struggled to provide numbers. Secrecy often prevailed.

New Jersey Paid Fees To Mary Christie's Firm After State Investment Was Terminated

Christie and wife MaryWhen the New Jersey pension system terminated a $150 million investment in a fund called Angelo, Gordon & Co. in 2011, that did not close the books on the deal. In the three years since state officials ordered the withdrawal of that state money, New Jersey taxpayers have forked over hundreds of thousands of dollars in fees to the firm. As those fees kept flowing, Angelo Gordon made a prominent hire: Mary Pat Christie, wife of Gov. Chris Christie, who joined the company in 2012 as a managing director and now earns $475,000 annually, according to the governor's most recent tax return.

The disclosure that New Jersey taxpayers have been paying substantial fees to a firm that employs the governor's spouse -- years after state officials said the investment was terminated -- emerged in documents released by the Christie administration to International Business Times through a public records request.

Arizona erred in denying dreamers' licenses, Supreme Court says

Jan BrewerThe U.S. Supreme Court has rejected a last-minute bid by Gov. Jan Brewer to keep dreamers from getting licenses to drive.

In a brief order issued this morning, the court denied Brewer's request that it issue a stay to prevent the 9th Circuit from ordering a federal judge in Phoenix to issue an injunction blocking Brewer's edict declaring that dreamers do not meet the requirements of Arizona law. The justices gave no reason for their decision.

Judge hears of 'bloody mess' execution as Oklahoma seeks to lift moratorium

Clayton LovettA federal judge heard witness testimonies on Wednesday regarding Oklahoma's attempt to resume executing prisoners, just nine months after the lethal injection of Clayton Lockett lasted an excruciating 43 minutes during which his vein burst causing what one warden described as “a bloody mess.”

Attorneys representing 21 death-row inmates in Oklahoma filed court documents last Friday revealing that Lockett’s death was far more grisly than previously portrayed, according to The Tulsa World newspaper on Sunday.

In court testimony Wednesday, Dr Joseph Cohen, a pathologist hired by the inmate's lawyer, said he was convinced Lockett suffered after being declared unconcious.

"Witness 40": Exposing A Fraud In Ferguson

witness 40The grand jury witness who testified that she saw Michael Brown pummel a cop before charging at him “like a football player, head down,” is a troubled, bipolar Missouri woman with a criminal past who has a history of making racist remarks and once insinuated herself into another high-profile St. Louis criminal case with claims that police eventually dismissed as a “complete fabrication,” The Smoking Gun has learned.

In interviews with police, FBI agents, and federal and state prosecutors--as well as during two separate appearances before the grand jury that ultimately declined to indict Officer Darren Wilson--the purported eyewitness delivered a preposterous and perjurious account of the fatal encounter in Ferguson.

Supreme Court: Traffic stop and search acceptable despite police misunderstanding the law

SCOTUSThe ruling was 8-1, with Justice Sonia Sotomayor as the only one opposed.

The case concerns Nicholas Heien, who was driving in North Carolina and was mistakenly pulled over by a police officer. The officer pulled Heien over because of a broken tail light, but having one tail light broken is not against North Carolina law.

The officer found a bag of cocaine after searching the car.

Soon after, Robinson returns into sight holding his stun gun, shouting “put your hands behind your back.”  Police later confirmed the stun gun had been used twice on Vasquez.
