  • Be-kind-to-killers crusade falls on callous, deaf ears

    Be-kind-to-killers crusade falls on callous, deaf ears
    An Allentown man sent an email saying an acquaintance planned to write a letter "concerning an important matter" and wanted to know if it should be sent to The Morning Call or to a home address. In the past, I have agreed to be careful when dealing with...
  • 'Justice' likely to ring hollow in death of WWII veteran

    'Justice' likely to ring hollow in death of WWII veteran
    A trial date has finally been set in the police killing of John Wrana, the frail, 95-year-old World War II veteran I've been telling you about for some time now. The trial is scheduled to begin Sept. 15, in a tiny courtroom in Markham, a bench trial...
  • Chicago: A town that won't let you down?

    Frank Sinatra's song about Chicago, "My Kind of Town," "a the town that won't let you down," seems dated in light of last weekend's shooting spree that left 16 dead and dozens wounded in 53 separate incidents. According to the Chicago Tribune, "The...
  • Judge Alex Kozinski on bringing back firing squads: No, I wasn't kidding

    Google "Alex Kozinski firing squad" and nearly 20,000 mentions turn up. But those are just a few words plucked from a detailed dissent by the chief judge of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, arguing, in essence, that Americans are hypocrites about...
  • One mom takes aim at gun violence

    One mom takes aim at gun violence
    We can do better. Better than 82 people shot in one city in 84 hours. Better than a father losing two of his children, a year apart, to gun violence. Better than a shooting per week on school grounds across the country since the Sandy Hook Elementary...
  • Botched execution should be death knell of capital punishment

    As fervently as some may support the death penalty by lethal injection, when the process becomes the least bit messy, most of us would prefer to hide. Oklahoma began lethal injection in America. And the state has brought the nation the latest sickening...
  • Too many questions left as 'Chicagoland' winds down

    Too many questions left as 'Chicagoland' winds down
    A headline in Monday's paper: "32 hurt, 4 killed in 36 hours." There is great, untold sorrow behind those numbers, 32-4-36, but we have become almost desensitized to much of the gun violence we read about in newspapers and see on television. We see...
  • Suburban officer charged in 95-year-old's death

    Suburban officer charged in 95-year-old's death
    An officer was charged this morning in the police killing of 95-year-old John Wrana, the World War II veteran who was fatally shot with beanbag rounds in his apartment at a south suburban senior facility last year. Cook County State’s Attorney...
  • Underground films see the light through fest

    Underground films see the light through fest
    The gradual narrative unspooling of "Who Took Johnny," the true-crime documentary about a 12-year-old Iowa boy who has been missing since 1982, is extremely canny. The film doesn't deviate from the standard format — a collage of archival footage and...
  • Keep Power Of Information With The People

    On Nov. 22, 1963, bullets flew in Dallas, and tore into the head of John F. Kennedy. A citizen named Abraham Zapruder captured the killing on a "home movie" camera. The film had a complicated life, but in 2014, you can watch it on YouTube. You can watch...
  • Stockton suspect's mug shot is textbook handsome

    Jeremy Meeks can't be the only good-looking guy behind bars in California. But he is the only one who went from Stockton gang-banger to international heartthrob overnight. His mom is trying to parlay that into a get-out-of-jail jackpot. She's raised...
