OJ Simpson back in court

Las Vegas, Nevada -- OJ Simpson was back in court today in an effort to overturn his kidnapping and armed robbery conviction.  His hands were cuffed to his belt and legs shackled.  A bit grayer and porkier these days, the former sports, TV commercial and movie star believes bad advice four years ago from his long time lawyer is what caused his conviction.

His new lawyers are trying to help him get it straight this time...

POLL: IRS political targeting — who’s responsible?

Washington, D.C. – What does it say about our country when a government entity as powerful as the IRS targets specific groups and organizations that have competing views with the current administration – in this case conservative vs. liberal.  

The IRS singled out for scrutiny organizations with names and positions that included the terms “tea party,” “patriots,” “9/12 Project” – and critical views relating to government debt or taxes, government spending, and educating the public on how to “make America a better place to live” etc.
Organizations meeting these criteria were put on a “Be on the Lookout” list (BOLO), for scrutiny…

White House spokesman Jay Carney says President Obama will withhold blaming unknown Republican operatives for this outrageous conduct until his specially appointed task force completes its investigation.  

Attorney General Eric H. Holder announced on Tuesday the Justice Department and FBI would examine whether any laws were violated at the agency, which has admitted targeting groups with the words “tea party” and “patriot” in their names.

Ohio kidnapper and rapist -- life in prison or death penalty?

Cleveland, Ohio -- Ariel Castro, accused kidnapper and rapist, claimed in a 2004 suicide note that he was abused as a child and that regarding his victims, “They are here against their will because they made a mistake of getting in a car with a total stranger.”

Okay, this is supposed to be a satirical news site.  But sometimes there is little to poke fun at, and the news is so disturbing it requires a new approach.  

In the case of Ariel Castro, who hijacked the lives of three innocent, young women and tortured them for years, there is no doubt he deserves life in prison.  But in this post, we pose the question, "Is that enough?"  Does the depravity of Mr. Castro's crimes warrant the Death Penalty?  Vote your conscience...
