Suspect in Shooting of Palestinian Students ‘Struggled With Depression’

In the immediate aftermath of the weekend shooting in Burlington, Vermont — wounding Hisham Awartani, Kinnan Abdalhamid, and Tahseen Aliahmad — I braced myself for an anticipated tsunami of reports about an “extremist” radicalized by Fox News and “far right” websites, because that’s obviously who must have done it, right? Then the arrest of a […]

Criminal Degeneracy in Action

Say hello to David Matthew Fines of Fort Smith, Arkansas, and yeah, go ahead and mention the obvious — face tattoos. Does anything good ever happen to anyone after they get tattoos on their face?

Crazy People Are Dangerous

When weighing career opportunities, most of us never give any consideration to cult leader as a job worth pursuing.

There have been 863 carjacking incidents in Washington, D.C., this year. […]

‘Kill All You Little Crackers’

“I’d be willing to speculate,” my brother Kirby said, when I mentioned that the Nashville shooter’s “manifesto” had finally been leaked, “that this person’s brain got poisoned during the lockdown. They went down a rabbit hole, and never came back.” And that’s almost certainly correct. Like me, my brother is a longtime student of criminal […]

Carnac the Magnificent Knows the Answer

If you’re old enough to remember when late-night TV was actually funny, you remember “Carnac the Magnificent.” In a recurring Tonight Show segment, Johnny Carson portrayed an Eastern mystic whose psychic powers enabled him to discern the answers to questions written inside envelopes which had been “hermetically sealed” and “kept in a mayonnaise jar on […]
