The law and the jungle

Right to try

Eric's regret

Caught on tape

A police-stop incident in Hammond is getting a lot of play everywhere, probably because there is a video of the whole ugly encounter (see here) shot by a teenager in the back seat. The cops stop the car which includes a woman driver, a male passenger and two kids in the back seat, because the two adults in the front seat aren't wearing seat belts.

A gay old time

In case you blinked and missed it, gay marriage just became the law of the land in Indiana:

The Supreme Court on Monday declined to decide once and for all whether states can ban gay marriage, a surprise move that will allow gay men and women to marry in five states where same-sex weddings were previously forbidden.

For the birds

HAMMOND, Ind. - A man whose animal cruelty conviction led Indiana lawmakers to pass a law making sexual relations with animals a crime faces another charge of sexually abusing an animal.

Forty-two-year-old Michael C. Bessigano was arrested Friday at his Lake County home on charges of bestiality and two other felony counts.

According to a new FBI report, the number of incidents in which a shooter opens fire in a crowd of people has more that doubled in the past seven years compared with the previous seven. And please note:

Shadow boxing

This is just about insane:

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said at a House Homeland Security Committee hearing on Wednesday that granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens in the United States could encourage terrorists among them to come out of the shadows.

Crossing the lines

Pity the NFL. Stung by criticism of its fumbling of the Ray Rice controversy, it seems befuddled about how to handle accusations against Adrian Peterson:

Anything goes

Opponents of same-sex marriage who argued that abadoning the traditional one man-one woman definition would lead no standards at all were dimissed as reactionary, patriarchal homophobes. But now that gay marriage is but one Supreme Court decision away from being the law of the land, some are beginning to open that door. Here is Sally, Kohn, for example, wondering why polygamy should be any different:

Wake-up calls

Janay Rice, victim of husband Ray's knockout punch, is lashing out at the media for "making us relive a moment in our lives that we regret everyday" and for taking "something away from the man that I love." That prompts this question:

A worthy rebuttal from the one person qualified to make it — or an attempt to shift blame?
