The Washington Post reports the drug transaction that nearly led to the death of toddler Bou Bou Phonesavanh was for $50 worth of meth.

Jen Hobbs In May, we reported on probably one of the most horrific cases of police misconduct of 2013.

Famed physicist Stephen Hawking and Russian tycoon Yuri Milner held a news conference in London to announce their new project: injecting $100 million and a whole lot of brain power into the search for intelligent extraterrestrial life.

Off The Grid When I lay out here in the Baja and I look up and see the thousands upon thousands of stars, I believe we can’t be the only ones inhabiting the universe. Of course there’s other life forms out there. How arrogant do we have to be to believe that’s not so? That’s

Ralkina Jones was reportedly found dead in her jail cell in Cleveland Heights this past Sunday morning. Family claims to have called police repeatedly, to no avail.

The White House issued an official statement in response to a petition that has gathered more than 160,000 signatures requesting a pardon for Edward Snowden.

A Hillview, Kentucky man was arrested for shooting down a drone worth $1,800. He says he was protecting his property and the privacy of his daughters, as the drone was hovering over them in his backyard.

Jen Hobbs  Is it an invasion of privacy for someone to fly a personal drone over someone else’s property without that person’s permission?  I’d say yes. There’s no way to tell what the intentions are of the anonymous person manning the drone. Is this person flying the drone for fun? Is this person gathering intel to rob you later
