Yesterday, on the 4th anniversary of the self-defense shooting of Trayvon Martin, we wrote about Florida’s just enacted changes to its “10-20-Life” mandatory minimum sentencing law in the context of aggravated assault and self-defense. There is also another substantive change to the state’s self-defense law that is advancing through the Florida legislature:…

A couple of years ago, the progressive left declared war on the Washington Redskins, or more pointedly, on the use of the word “redskins” in the team’s name.  This PC battle fizzled out when the FCC ruled that it would not fine networks for the use of the team’s name in…

It was a chilling speech in 1996. Speaking in favor of a new crime bill, Hillary Clinton used the term “superpredator” to describe young, mostly black, men who were residual criminals. While the term was not literally limited to blacks, it came to signify and justify the mass incarceration of young black…

Less than a year ago, climate scientists were heralding the “Godzilla El Niño,” which would generate historic rainfalls that could help alleviate California’s mega-drought. Climate reality has failed to confirm climate theory, as the term “dud” is now being used to describe the weather pattern. Is this El Niño a dud? Sacramento is…

Today marks the fourth anniversary of the fateful day on which Trayvon Martin made the imprudent and quickly fatal decision to viciously beat (as testified to by eye witnesses) an armed George Zimmerman.
