    The Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization said Monday it stands in “solidarity with Palestinians,” adding it is working to end “settler colonialism.” “We are a movement committed to ending settler colonialism in all forms and will continue to advocate for Palestinian liberation.

    Deep in the Australian outback lies a small town with no police presence, where horrific violence is a daily occurrence and where sexual assault goes unchecked. The 'completely lawless' community of Fregon is hidden away in the red dust of the South Australian desert, about 1,300km north of Adelaide, and is home to one of Australia's most shocking crimes. Outback nurse Gayle Woodford, 56, who took up a role at the Nganampa Health Council and often travelled to Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands for work - was lured into a trap and then abducted, raped and murdered before being buried in a shallow grave in 2016.

    An Illinois mother and domestic violence survivor warned against ending cash bail on Thursday after her estranged husband returned home from jail and murdered her 18-month-old son. Cassandra Tanner Miller told her harrowing story, which brought Fox News co-host Dana Perino to tears during an interview on "America’s Newsroom." Christopher Michael Miller, a former corrections officer and member of the Illinois National Guard badly beat and strangled Tanner until she was unconscious and was released that day on an ‘I-bond.’ An ‘I-bond’ allows a person to leave jail without paying any money, as long as the person signs a statement saying he or she will return and be present in court for a hearing. Tanner met with Illinois Governor J. B. Pritzker, D., and told him that in order for situations like hers to never occur again, the state needs "stronger," not weaker bond conditions, and needs to elevate the voices of domestic violence survivors. ILLINOIS POISED TO END CASH BAIL AND POSSIBLY SET ALLEGED CRIMINALS FREE Instead of heeding her advice, yesterday the governor signed a law making Illinois the first state in...
    BALTIMORE — During Baltimore’s first CeaseFire weekend of 2021, participants highlighted the people and places that make Baltimore more than its crime rate. The city has recorded 30 murders in the first five weeks of the year. Supporters of the CeaseFire event hope to bring an end to violence. Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, organizers tweaked the traditional format by kicking off Saturday with a virtual “Speak Joy Over Baltimore” event. Mayor Brandon Scott made it clear he expects all the people of Baltimore to step up if the violence is going to end. He particularly challenged men to get out of the house and join the movement.

    BALTIMORE (AP) — During Baltimore’s first CeaseFire weekend of 2021, participants highlighted the people and places that make Baltimore more than its crime rate. The city has recorded 30 murders in the first five weeks of the year. Supporters of the CeaseFire event hope to bring an end to violence. Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, organizers tweaked the traditional format by kicking off Saturday with a virtual “Speak Joy Over Baltimore” event. A second virtual event took place later, when participants created drawings and art to express their appreciation for the city. The Baltimore Sun reports that Baltimore CeaseFire 365 co-founder Erricka Bridgeford and group members Ellen Gee and Darnyle Wharton later led a group of walkers in the the Walbrook neighborhood of West Baltimore. There they met with leaders and members of community groups, including Baltimore Safe Streets. Mayor Brandon Scott made it clear he expects all the people of Baltimore to step up if the violence is going to end. He particularly challenged men to get out of the house and join the movement. “If you are...
    [Ed. note: This essay contains descriptions of sexual assault and violence. It also reveals and analyzes the ending of Promising Young Woman.] The trailer for Emerald Fennell’s Promising Young Woman teased a fresh story about sexual violence from an unusual and impressive angle. Movies and television shows that address sexual violence are still too often retrograde and exploitative, used to shorthand an antagonist’s villainy or a hero’s motivation. They frequently focus on how assault affects the male characters connected to the survivor, among other insulting tropes. Beyond that, much of the storytelling is simply boring, relying on the same story beats, like using sexual assault to make an unpopular woman character more palatable. But Promising Young Woman appeared to be serving up something different. Fennell’s story looked like it was trying to break out of the old patterns. So much of Fennell’s directorial debut is well-crafted. The casting of 2000s Nice Guys like Adam Brody (Seth Cohen from The O.C.) and two of Veronica Mars’ more emotionally healthy exes (Chris Lowell and Max Greenfield) seemed inspired. The Girl Culture...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump for the first time acknowledged his defeat in the Nov. 3 election and announced there would be an “orderly transition on January 20th” after Congress concluded the electoral vote count early Thursday certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. Trump’s acknowledgement came after a day of chaos and destruction on Capitol Hill as a mob of his supporters stormed the Capitol building and unleashed unprecedented scenes of mayhem as it tried to halt the peaceful transition of power. Members of Congress were forced into hiding, offices were ransacked, and the formal congressional tally halted for more than six hours. “Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th,” Trump said in a statement posted to Twitter by his social media director. His own account had been locked by the company for posting messages that appeared to justify the assault on the seat of the nation’s democracy. Trump added, “While this represents the end of the greatest first term...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — President Donald Trump on Tuesday repeatedly tried to take credit for “immediately” ending the violence in Kenosha following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, by sending in the National Guard, even though looting and shootings continued after the first troops were deployed last week. “One of the reasons I’m making the trip today and going to Wisconsin is we’ve had such a big success in shutting down what would be, right now, a city — that would’ve been Kenosha — a city that would’ve been burnt to the ground by now,” Trump said. Trump also said his administration will provide $1 million to the Kenosha Police Department, $4 million to support small businesses damaged during the civil unrest of the past week, and $42 million to support public safety statewide in Wisconsin – including funding for additional prosecutors, and assistance for victims of crime. The president visited Kenosha on Tuesday to thank local law enforcement officials for their response to the civil unrest over the past nine days, and to visit businesses damaged by looting and fires....
    Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf told ABC’s “This Week” that “all options continue to be on the table” in terms of ending violent protests. Partial transcript as follows: KARL: Can you give us an update on what exactly happened, as you understand it, in Portland overnight? What happened with the shooting? Who was killed? WOLF: Well, we’re still waiting, obviously, for that investigation to unfold. I do understand that there were a number of counterprotests and countergroups in Portland overnight. And I think this points to a larger issue that we have seen in Portland for the last three months. And that is local and state officials not allowing law enforcement to do their job and really to bring this violent activity night after night after night to a close. And so what — as you see that continue to unfold over the course of three months, you are going to continue to see violent activity. And we have asked the governor, we have asked the mayor to step in if they don’t have the resources. The president...
    Attorney General William Barr commended Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best after her officers cleared out the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP) early Wednesday morning after it had taken over part of the city for three weeks. Barr issued a statement Wednesday afternoon: I commend Police Chief Carmen Best for her courage and leadership in restoring the rule of law in Seattle. For the past several weeks, the Capitol Hill area of Seattle was occupied by protesters who denied access to police and other law enforcement personnel. Unsurprisingly, the area became a haven for violent crime, including shootings that claimed the lives of two young people, assaults, and robberies. As Chief Best made clear throughout the process, there is a fundamental distinction between discussion of substantive issues — including addressing distrust of law enforcement by many in the African-American community — and violent defiance of the law. Chief Best has rightly committed to continue the substantive discussion while ending the violence, which threatens innocent people and undermines the very rule-of-law principles that the protesters profess to defend. Thanks to the Seattle Police...
    Nearly 90 percent of homicides in Philadelphia were caused by gun violence, a number that is astoundingly high despite shutdowns due to coronavirus. Police said 158 of the 177 homicides in the city were the result of gun violence, the highest it's been in over 13 years. PHILADELPHIA WOMAN WHO ALLEGEDLY RAN OVER POLICE OFFICER IS CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTED MURDER Philadelphia Police Department Inspector Derrick Wood said his 22-year-old nephew was killed and is the 176th homicide victim of the year, according to a Tweet on Tuesday. Wood decried the violence that has gripped his city, saying: "While we are working on ending racism and police brutality...we should be working just as hard on ending this gun violence. In lieu of your thoughts and prayers. I prefer you do something to help end this pervasive gun violence in Philadelphia," he wrote on Twitter. CLICK HERE FOR THE FOX NEWS APP Tuesday was a particularly violent night in the city as a gunman shot over 70 rounds outside of a home in North Philadelphia. Instances of looting and gun violence also played out over the last two...
    Many groups bear responsibility for the recent chaos in American cities: the rioters themselves, ­police departments and unions that fail to discipline bad cops, politicians who deliberately enflame resentment and hotheaded social-media influencers. Add another group to the mix: gangsters, who for decades have turned many inner-city, mostly African-American neighborhoods into war zones. As the evidence shows, though white men are killed more often by cops, it’s statistically more likely for a black man to be killed by a police officer than a white man is — a reality that might be explained by the fact that cops interact with black men far more often than they do with white men. The gangsters help explain that difference. The Bloods, Crips, Gangster Disciples, Vice Lords and other such factions draw cops into black neighborhoods — often at the urging of black citizens. These gangs commit a large share of the thousands of gun crimes in our cities. Even during the pandemic, gangsters have continued to kill black men across the country. Though gangs make up a small minority of urban America’s...
