I intended to write an article today about the mess in Ferguson Missouri but let’s be honest here…brutally honest…I don’t know what happened when that punk kid got shot by the cop and neither do those who are rioting, looting, committing arson, shooting or going on the attack.
Jesse Jackson doesn’t know…Al Sharpton…Continue

Does anybody remember the novel Bonfire of the Vanities? In that 1987 novel by Tom Wolfe a "master of the universe" junk bond trader accidentally gets off the highway in "the hood" and runs over a black thug (among some thugs trying to get him to stop his car so that he could be robbed). Civil Rights activists - eager for the publicity their "struggle for justice" would bring - jump on this case, and the media runs with it (claiming the kid was an honor student…
It seems that scant weeks pass in this country without another mass shooting, or at least an attempted mass shooting is prevented, and the liberal media quickly jumps on the gun control bandwagon, making it seem that guns are the cause of these shootings. The media never actually addresses the root causes, nor asks why the number of such incidents is rising at this particular historical moment. Guns have always been available, after all. No, something else is happening…Continue

"This case has never been about race, nor has it ever been about the right to bear arms, But Trayvon Martin was profiled. There is no doubt that he was profiled to be a criminal. And if race was one of the aspects in George Zimmerman's mind, then we believe that we put out the proof necessary to show that Zimmerman did profile Trayvon Martin."

Woven into the fabric of our unique American culture is the timeless wisdom of founding father, Benjamin Franklin. Franklin, the author of the phrase, “An Ounce of Prevention is worth a Pound of Cure”, would be appalled at much that is going on in American politics, but probably not…Continue

Timothy Birdnow In a recent article at American Thinker Elise Cooper argued for new programs and more school involvement to reduce bullying. As she rightly points out bullying is on the rise in modern America, and the temptation to turn to psychologists, schools and government is strong - even for conservatives. I fear the notion that bullying can be stopped through governmental programs is…Continue
Popular culture has made murder, rape, mayhem, hatred, and violence "cool"

The recent massacre at an elementary school in Connecticut (the ironically named Sandy Hook - it’s been a bad year for anything named Sandy) has, predictably, brought a chorus of calls for gun control and to double down on Progressive social reform schemes.
It appears no tragedy, no matter how horrendous, is to be allowed to “go to waste” as Rahm Emmanuel would say.…

“Can we legislate morality?” This is a very relevant question that deserves a serious answer. But what is really meant by this question? The idea of “legislating morality” often gives people the impression that we can create a moral society through the creation of laws. Fact is - we cannot. As a prosecutor I became acutely aware of the apparently widely held view that the criminal justice system will “reform” people. We could save ourselves a lot of heartache and a lot…Continue
