A federal district court judge in Florida on Saturday signaled her “preliminary” intent to appoint a special master to review a tranche of material recovered from former President Donald Trump’s home and club in Palm Beach, Florida. An Aug. 8, 2022 FBI search of Trump’s palatial Mar-a-Lago resort resulted in the recovery of boxes of secret and classified documents, according to an inventory filed before a U.S. magistrate judge who signed off on the original probable cause determination for the mission. Trump’s attorneys did not directly fight the warrant in an original proceeding before U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce E. Reinhart. Rather, they filed a concurrent proceeding, styled as Trump v. United States, in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida on Mon., Aug. 22. That filing did not ask to quash the warrant entirely. Rather, among other things, it asked U.S. District Judge Aileen M. Cannon, a Trump appointee, to appoint a special master to review the voluminous...
    SACRAMENTO —  Jamil Wilson was planning to celebrate his 20th birthday with friends, so he didn’t give it much thought when one of them, prior to the party, asked if they could pick up another pal at his home in Cerritos. What Wilson didn’t know, he said later, is that his two friends were planning to commit a murder that night in 1994. By being at the scene of the crime, he would become an unwitting accomplice. Wilson and his friends, Adrion McFarlin and Duane Gittens, were later arrested in connection with the murder of Gittens’ mother, Delphina Gittens, according to interviews and court documents. Duane Gittens said he took part in the killing because his mother had abused him for years. Despite maintaining his innocence, Wilson was charged with felony murder in the first degree and with aiding and abetting a conspiracy, and was later convicted. Because of a tough crime law that California voters had recently approved, Wilson was sentenced to life in prison in 1996, and ended up serving 25 years. Wilson, whose sentence was commuted...

                        In a statement released by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) as a part of the state’s new COVID vaccine program for elementary aged children, they shared that COVID vaccines can be given to minors without parental consent under “special circumstances.” The webpage for Minnesota’s COVID response page tells parents that parental consent is required, except under “rare or special circumstances.” The page does not go on to define what “rare or special circumstances” might be. “Check with the clinic where your child is getting vaccinated to see if a parent or guardian must also be present at the vaccination appointment. When possible, we encourage you to go with your child so you can ask questions and learn more about the vaccine,” the campaign said. They also informed parents that at state-run vaccine clinics, parental consent would be required for those under the age of 15. It was unclear if minors aged 15 and older needed parental consent to obtain the COVID vaccine or not. In the...
    More On: department of education City Council bill would limit the number of kids in DOE classrooms DOE bungled distribution of student iPads during COVID: comptroller report Curtis Sliwa says critical race theory is ‘creeping’ into NYC schools Parents demand NYC middle school bring back honors math classes City officials are considering a remote schooling option for kids with immunocompromised relatives, a source told The Post Friday. The Department of Education previously said that students who themselves are vulnerable could learn from home — but the city may now extend that offer to kids with family members at elevated risk, the City Hall source said. News of the proposal drew skepticism from some educators. A Bed-Stuy middle school teacher warned that expanding remote learning eligibility could complicate the resumption of classes in September. “It’s going to be difficult to know where to draw the line,” she said. “I can see that becoming a headache for principals if it’s not handled properly or clearly.” Meanwhile, State Education Commissioner Betty Rosa wrote in a Thursday memo that districts “may work with...
    Former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove reacted Tuesday to President Biden's plans to narrow the wealth gap among minorities. The Fox News contributor argued on 'America's Newsroom' that America has long believed in "equality of opportunity." PROGRESSIVES THINK BIDEN'S LATEST $1.8T FAMILIES PLAN ISN'T BIG ENOUGH  KARL ROVE: We've come as a country to accept that we want every American to have the opportunity to rise. And if there's a need to give special help to those who come from poor circumstances, we're willing to do that as a country.   That's a very different question to say we don't care where you are financially, but if you are Black or Bown or Asian American, you know what? You get special privileges that other people don't get. And that's going to be a very difficult and, I think troublesome, debate for the country to have. We hide behind the word equity. And that sounds nice, equitable treatment.   But we had an agreement that we wanted equality, equality of opportunity, equity implies an equality of outcome. And...
    The end of a school year has traditionally been a time of celebration. Students may celebrate because summer vacation has arrived, and families typically gather to celebrate students who have earned their diplomas and degrees. But just as it’s compromised many other traditional celebrations, the COVID-19 pandemic is changing how families can safely celebrate graduation. Thanks to the tireless efforts of medical researchers, a handful of COVID-19 vaccinations have been developed and approved since the end of 2020. As more and more people become vaccinated, the world is gradually emerging from the pandemic. However, members of the class of 2021 will likely have to celebrate in unique circumstances. Such celebrations may not be traditional, but they can still be fun. Families may even enjoy finding new and unique ways to celebrate graduation this spring. – Create a school-themed “movie” where grads are the stars. Students’ academic careers are filled with milestones, and the emergency of various technologies over the past two decades has made it easier than ever for families to document those milestones. Parents can pore through the many...
    SANTA ANA (CBSLA) — Orange County’s District Attorney Todd Spitzer filed a special circumstance murder charge Tuesday against Kenneth Rasmuson, a sexual predator who has been accused in the deaths of two 6-year-old boys in the 1980s. (credit: Idaho Sex Offender Registry) Rasmuson had already been charged in the 1981 murder and sexual assault of Jeffrey Vargo, who was kidnapped from his Anaheim Hills neighborhood, and whose body was found in Pomona. Rasmuson was also facing a capital murder count in the 1986 death of a boy, identified by prosecutors as Miguel Doe, whose body was found in a remote creek bed near his home in Agoura Hills. RELATED: Arrest Made In Murders Of 3 Homeless People Found Stabbed To Death Near Compton Creek Bed Spitzer filed charges from Vargo’s home county due to recent moves by Los Angeles County’s newly elected district attorney, George Gascon. Gascon’s new directives forced Los Angeles County prosecutors to move to dismiss the special circumstances and enhancements in the multiple murder case, which Spitzer says he opposed in an amicus brief filed in Los...
    NAPA (CBS SF) — A state appeals court this week ordered the re-sentencing of Sara Lynn Krueger and Ryan Scott Warner, who were convicted for the 2014 murder, with special circumstances of torture, of Krueger’s 3-year-old daughter Kayleigh Slusher. On appeal, Krueger and Warner challenged their convictions and sentences on multiple grounds. In two opinions totaling 147 pages, the appellate panel rejected all the challenges other than the determination of the special circumstances of torture. The court found that torture with special circumstances requires proof that the defendant intended to kill when he or she tortured the victim. Sara Lynn Krueger, Ryan Scott Warner (Napa Police Dept.) Based on those facts, the court determined that the evidence at trial was not sufficient to prove the defendants intended to kill Kayleigh. This required a reversal of their sentence and a re-sentencing that will take place at a future date in Napa County Superior Court. In the gruesome details recounted by the court, on Feb. 1, 2014, authorities went to Krueger’s apartment and discovered Kayleigh’s body in bed under blankets. Her face...
    A mother in Los Angeles County says she feels "sick" after learning that special circumstance charges against three of the men accused of murdering her 20-year-old son and throwing him off a cliff were dismissed Friday under new District Attorney George Gascon’s sweeping reforms. Desiree Andrade told FOX11 Los Angeles that the death of her son, Julian Andrade, left her devastated and that Gascon’s office has yet to reach out to her about the case. LOS ANGELES COUNTY DA GEORGE GASCON CHANGES COURSE ON GETTING RID OF ALL SENTENCING ENHANCEMENTS "I felt let down by this justice system," she said. "I just ask you, George Gascon, to please think what you’re doing. This is not right, this is not fair on so many levels." Andrade's son was found brutally murdered in May 2018. Investigators have said Julian Andrade was repeatedly beaten and stabbed until he lost consciousness. The suspects, believing he was dead, drove him to the mountains in Azusa to dispose of the body. Realizing he was still alive, the suspects stomped on his head. They threw his body off...
