Can the James Tubbs case finally end the farce of ‘progressive’ justice?

A child molestation scandal that was handed a soft prison sentence by Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon may be the beginning of the end for America’s disastrous experiment with “progressive” justice. At the age of 17, James Tubbs went to a public women’s bathroom, was pushed into a booth and forced one hand to lower the pants of a 10-year-old girl in a violent sexual assault that was stopped by another person who only entered the bathroom. When Tubbs was identified as the attacker a few years later, after…

Alec Baldwin may not have killed ‘Rust’ cinematographer Halyna Hutchins: DA

The New Mexico attorney general said Alec Baldwin may have fired the shot that killed “Rust” cinematographer Helena Hutchins without pulling the trigger.

Alvin Bragg was elected as Manhattan’s first black district attorney

Civil rights attorney and former federal prosecutor Alvin Bragg was elected as Manhattan’s first black district attorney Tuesday night. The 48-year-old Democrat handily defeated his Republican opponent, criminal justice attorney Thomas Kenniff, garnering nearly 84 percent of the vote with 81 percent of the precincts. Bragg was a big favorite to win in the Democratic-controlled area. He will replace retired Attorney General C. Vance in January, and inherit a high-profile investigation into former President Donald Trump. In the course of the campaign, Bragg—who grew up in Harlem during the 1980s—promised…
