Frazier Glenn Cross appears in court on murder charges in Olathe, KansasBy Kevin Murphy OLATHE, Kan. (Reuters) - A Kansas judge on Tuesday ordered a Missouri white supremacist to stand trial on capital murder charges in the shooting deaths of three people outside two Jewish centers in a Kansas City suburb last April. Johnson County District Court Judge Thomas Kelly Ryan found probable cause to believe that Frazier Glenn Cross Jr., 74, committed the murders as well as three attempted murders, following 1-1/2 days of sometimes harrowing testimony. Cross, a former senior member of the Ku Klux Klan who had expressed a hatred for Jews, could face the death penalty if convicted on the capital murder charges in the shooting spree on April 13 in Overland Park, Kansas. A public defender asked Ryan to delay Cross' arraignment until later in March so he could advise his client and present evidence.

'Free-range' parents in Maryland found responsible for neglect

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 03/04/2015 - 05:20
(Reuters) - A Maryland couple who drew national attention for being "free-range" parents after police found their children walking home alone have been found responsible for child neglect, a state child protective services spokeswoman said on Tuesday. The finding of "unsubstantiated child neglect" means a CPS file will be kept open for five years on the family of Danielle and Alexander Meitiv. Police stopped the children on Dec. 20 while they were on a walk home from a park in the Washington suburb of Silver Spring, Maryland, said Paula Tolson, spokeswoman for the Maryland Department of Human Resources and Montgomery County Child Protective Services. An unsubstantiated finding typically is reached when the agency has some information supporting a finding of child neglect,?? has conflicting credible reports, or does not have ?sufficient information to reach a more definitive conclusion, Tolson said.

Miami-Dade County Public Schools Chief Academic Officer Marie Izquierdo called the Florida State Assessment tests on Monday an “epic fail” on Twitter, blaming the state for hastily rolling out an unproven computerized testing system.

U.S. Supreme Court checks in on hotel records privacy case

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 03/04/2015 - 05:09
By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Supreme Court justices on Tuesday appeared unsure over how to resolve a privacy rights challenge by hotel operators to a Los Angeles city ordinance, intended to deter crimes including prostitution, that lets police view guest registries. The court heard a one-hour oral argument over an appeal brought by the city after the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the ordinance in December 2013. Hotel operators challenged the law, saying it violated their privacy rights under the U.S. Constitution's Fourth Amendment. Some justices appeared supportive of the city, while others were more sympathetic toward the hotel operators.

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 03/04/2015 - 05:03
By Harriet McLeod CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - Revenge may be the motive for the killings in South Carolina of more than 300,000 commercial chickens worth about $1.7 million over the past two weeks, authorities said on Monday. Birds have been found dead of unnatural causes in 16 chicken houses at six farms that grow chickens for Pilgrims Pride Corp, the largest poultry producer in the United States, which laid off some 60 people right before the killings began, Clarendon County Sheriff Randy Garrett said. The company has a processing plant in Sumter, South Carolina. One farmer, W.L. Coker, lost the birds in eight chicken houses, or about 160,000 birds, he said.
