Renisha McBride: Trayvon Again

The jury is being chosen in Detroit for what some think of as a repeat of the Trayvon Martin case. This time it’s about a 19-year-old woman — Renisha McBride — who, after a car accident likely caused by drinking, knocked on the door of a 55-year-old white man and was shot as a prospective “burglar.” In Detroit, you understand, burglars commonly knock first. [Theodore] Wafer shot McBride on his front porch...

The downside of giving weapons

WASHINGTON — The bodies and debris that rained from the Ukrainian sky offer a cautionary lesson about the danger of giving heavy weapons to non-state actors. I hope the hawks who wanted President Obama to ship anti-aircraft missiles to the Syrian rebels are paying attention. By now there is little doubt that Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, with 298 people on board, was blasted out of the sky Thursday by a Russian-made SA-11 missile...

Balloon Payment For The Sochi Olympics Invade Now For Best Financing Terms The View From The Virgin Islands By John McCarthy TMV Columnist Remember when the worst thing we had to fear from Vladimir Putin was another garish bare-chested, bareback photo opportunity? There had come a time in the career of President Putin when he was even taking flack from Pussy Riot band members and seemed destined for irrelevance. Not any more. The...

Maybe this is the real story behind the downed Malaysia airliner

Geography, motive, communications intercepts, and all manner of circumstantial evidence suggest that the likeliest suspect in the horrific deaths of two hundred and ninety-eight people aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was the curiously well-armed and well-coördinated military outfit loyal to Moscow in eastern Ukraine. Various government and intelligence officials in Kiev say that they have evidence, including a series of damning...

The Mass Migration of Children Mexican Authorities ‘Missed’ (El Universal and Excelsior, Mexico)

Today we have three columns on the immigration crises from Mexican newspapers El Universal and Excelsior, and from La Prensa of Honduras. All three reflect frustration with the handling of the crisis by the governments in Mexico and Central America, and notably, none expresses any real consternation with the United States. First, as the flow of child migrants traveling through Mexico to the U.S. border continues to build, this...

Is Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel in big political trouble?

So much for having him being seen as a political whirlwind who’ll easily serve many years as Chicago’s mayor. Rahm Emanuel has hit a political speed-bump. Part of it is due to the blood-fest that descended on Chicago on the 4th of July. And part of it is because no one has ever accused his political style of being endearing or even in power-politics terms utterly irresistible. But the bottom line is this: one new poll has...

Military Retirees: Light ‘Em Up – at Your Own Risk.

I am a military retiree. In the back of my mind I knew that retired members of the armed forces (who are entitled to pay) are still subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). As a hopefully law-abiding retiree I have never given it much thought, however. Furthermore, it was my understanding that if a retiree was ever “hauled-in” to face military justice, it would be for some very severe crime. In a recent article, the...
