    During the sentencing, the judge threw out another rape conviction, claiming there wasn't evidence of "psychological injury" even while reportedly remarking that what happened to the victim "may be the most traumatic moment of" her life. What has been the response? The lenient sentence, which was announced on Monday, immediately became the subject of harsh criticism from prosecutors. "I'm disappointed in the outcome. I do not believe when you're convicted of second-degree rape that home detention is appropriate and I certainly don't believe only four years on this kind of crime is appropriate," Baltimore County State's Attorney Scott Shellenberger said, according to the Baltimore Sun. The prosecutor reportedly told WBAL that the sentence was especially "not appropriate" for for a police officer, who "should know as well or better than others the reprehensibility of such an act." Shellenberger also claimed that such a sentence could prevent victims of sexual assault from coming forward in the future, saying, "I fear this could cause rape victims to hesitate to report their crimes if they do...

              moreby Julie Kelly   In 2018, after a local news crew filmed Ryan Nichols rescuing dogs abandoned by their owners after Hurricane Florence, the former Marine appeared on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Not only did DeGeneres commend Nichols’ longtime work as a search-and-rescue volunteer, she donated $25,000 to the Humane Society in his name and gave Ryan and his wife, Bonnie, a $10,000 check to pay for the honeymoon they had missed the year before so Ryan could assist rescue efforts in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. But instead of heading to Hawaii, the Nicholses used the generous donation to buy a rescue boat. With his Marine buddy and best friend, Alex Harkrider, at his side, the pair has participated in “dozens of hurricane rescues and disaster relief efforts,” according to Joseph McBride, Nichols’ attorney. Three years after his appearance on the DeGeneres show, Nichols was featured on another program, but this time, Nichols spoke from the fetid confines of a political prison in the nation’s capital. And instead of telling a heroic story of saving dogs drowning in rising flood waters,...

The $3.1 billion USS Connecticut's CO Cmdr Cameron Aljilani, XO Lt Cmdr Patrick Cashin and COB Cory Rodgers were relieved of their positions on Wednesday. A seamount is a mountain which rises from the ocean floor.   A statement from the Navy said that the October 2 crash, which injured 11 crew members, could have been prevented with 'sound judgement, prudent decision-making and adherence to required procedures in navigation planning'. Three interim officers were ordered to fill in and the Seawolf-class submarine is reportedly in Guam 'undergoing damage assessment' overseen by the Naval Sea Systems Command.  On the day the USS Connecticut struck the underwater mountain there were soaring tensions with China after 39 warplanes breached Taiwanese airspace and a record 56 aircraft flew into the zone two days later in a 24-hour period.

    A furious black mom is suing a Michigan police department for pointing a gun and handcuffing her 10 year-old son after his dad was apprehended by cops.   'I'm scared,' the visibly frightened child can be heard telling the Pittsfield Township officer while getting handcuffed, in footage recorded from the officer's person during the April 16 incident.  The altercation, which saw the boy's dad filmed screaming over how his son was treated, has since become the focus of a federal lawsuit filed by the boy's mother. It came after the boy's father was ordered by cops to drive away from the scene of a shooting that had been cordoned off by police. He drove down the wrong side of a road, sparking a police response. A 100mph chase then ensued, with the dad and his son both restrained after officers finally apprehended their white Dodge car.  The suit, filed in a Michigan US District Court on October 5, argues that the Pittsfield Township officer, who has not been formally identified, caused 'emotional injury' to the youngster during the April 16 traffic stop,...

    Stephen Maturen/Getty Images A public referendum to defund the Minneapolis Police Department failed on Tuesday. Had it succeeded, the police department would have been replaced with a Department of Public Safety. At least 57 percent of voters rejected the proposal, with 94 percent of the vote reported. This Department of Public Safety would have been “responsible for integrating its public safety functions into a comprehensive public health approach to safety. including licensed peace officers if necessary to fulfill the responsibilities of the department.” The measure came about in the aftermath of the 2020 case of George Floyd, a Black man whose knee a police officer placed a knee on, suffocating him to death. That officer, Derek Chauvin, was convicted in April and sentenced in June to 22.5 years in prison for Floyd’s death. Floyd’s death led to protests, riots, and calls to “Defund the Police” nationwide.

    China's growing military muscle and its drive to end American predominance in the Asia-Pacific is rattling the U.S. defense establishment. American officials see trouble quickly accumulating on multiple fronts — Beijing's expanding nuclear arsenal, its advances in space, cyber and missile technologies, and threats to Taiwan. 'The pace at which China is moving is stunning,' said General John Hyten, the No. 2-ranking U.S. military officer, who previously commanded U.S. nuclear forces and oversaw Air Force space operations. At stake is a potential shift in the global balance of power that has favored the United States for decades. A realignment more favorable to China does not pose a direct threat to the United States but could complicate U.S. alliances in Asia.  New signs of how the Pentagon intends to deal with the China challenge may emerge in coming weeks from Biden administration policy reviews on nuclear weapons, global troop basing and overall defense strategy.  China's growing military and its focus to end America's presence in the Asia-Pacific region are concerns worrying the U.S. defense establishment.
