    30 May 2015 | 12:55 pm
    BARSTOW — An officer’s body cam video shows what the ACLU alleges was a wrongful arrest and the wrestling to the ground of an eight months pregnant black woman after she got into an argument with a white woman outside a school here. “I’d say it’s pretty horrifying because the parent is dropping off her second-grade daughter [and] got into altercation with another parent,” Jessica Price, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California, said of the video, posted online by the group. The women were upset with each over a driving dispute.

    A UCLA graduate student accused of falsifying data in a study released a response Friday refuting a report by three researchers who found irregularities in the study. In the original study, Michael LaCour and his co-author, Columbia University professor Donald Green, found evidence suggesting that conversations with gay canvassers can change voter attitudes on same-sex marriage. The study was published in the journal Science in December, and was retracted by the journal Thursday after a request by Green.

No, the worst day came a year later when Baker’s physical therapy ended. That was when his therapists, marveling that he could actually stand on his own again and move his arms some, cautioned him not to expect much more. The chances of walking again, he was told, were one in a million. He eventually used that as a mantra —…

Dickey threw his first complete game of the season as the Toronto Blue Jays dumped the Los Angeles Angels 8-4 on Thursday night.

    TORONTO – Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey made some adjustments to his delivery Thursday night and it paid off with his first complete game of the season. The veteran knuckleballer said he slowed the tempo down and it helped give the pitch some late movement. It left the Los Angeles Angels largely befuddled in Toronto’s 8-4 victory at Rogers Centre. Edwin Encarnacion and Danny Valencia hit homers to give their starter a nice cushion as the Blue Jays salvaged a split of the four-game series in front of 19,014 fans. Dickey (2-5) gave up a solo shot to Marc Krauss in the first inning…

    Filling in for the injured Albert Pujols, Marc Krauss didn’t mind too much when the Toronto Blue Jays pitched around Mike Trout to get to him in a key situation. “That’s what I would do if I was a manager,” Krauss said. “I’m 1-for-whatever, so why are you going to pitch to the best player in the game when you’re clinging to a lead?” What sounded like smart strategy didn’t pay off when Krauss hit a go-ahead two-run double, helping the Los Angeles Angels rally to beat the Blue Jays 4-3 on Wednesday night, their seventh win in nine games.

    La Jewish LawyerSouthern California No water anywhere? No drop to drink?                         As our friends in Texas and Oklahoma are now saying, water, water everywhere!!!. They are faced with flooding and tremendous property damage that will go into the millions of dollars. We must turn this phrase and change it to no water anywhere, and we must not waste what we have. Our state is in a desert and we are now facing a huge water shortage. The only way to save ourselves now is through conservation. Mother nature has not supplied…

Are the police poorly trained? Are they making the decision to be judge, jury and executioner? Are the victims of these incidents to blame? Are the police operating under the AWB (arrested while black) premise that somehow fosters and/or excuses bad conduct on their part? These incidents are not confined to one…

Hillary Steamroller?                       Now that the Cold War prohibition of dealing with Cuba has all but evaporated, the next question must be asked? What benefit does this give the Untied States? The obvious economic benefits to the US are clear. New markets for US goods. Various industries in the US will benefit. More cars, computers, and other goods are at the ready, waiting to be exported to Cuba. The Cuban government stands to benefit as well. Major League Baseball…
