Guards at New York City jail accused of drug trafficking

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 04:10
By Ellen Wulfhorst NEW YORK (Reuters) - Three guards at New York City's Rikers Island Correctional Facility have been indicted on charges of smuggling drugs into the city's largest jail complex and selling contraband to inmates, authorities said on Tuesday. The charges stem from a investigation involving wire taps and undercover agents posing as friends and family members of inmates who met up with the Department of Correction officers, according to the city Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor. The prosecutor's office alleged that the officers accepted contraband pills and payment from the undercover agents. Two officers face charges of drug possession and trafficking narcotics, including cocaine and the powerful painkiller oxycodone, into Rikers Island, along with other contraband, the prosecutor said.

Baltimore poised to impose strict new youth curfew

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 04:10
Baltimore, faced with high crime rates, is set to impose one of the strictest U.S. curfews for young people, with the mayor facing residents on Tuesday to explain the new rules. Backers of the law, including Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, say it will not criminalize children, but will take them off the street and put them and their families in touch with social services agencies. This is a city and we are going to make sure that we keep our kids safe,” Rawlings-Blake, a Democrat, said in May. Rawlings-Blake is holding a meeting on Tuesday night at the University of Baltimore to answer questions from residents about the law. CRIME RATE City Councilman Brandon Scott, who sponsored the bill, said the great majority of his constituents backed the new curfew.

Idaho suspends plan to kill wolves in wilderness

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 04:09
By Laura Zuckerman SALMON Idaho (Reuters) - Conservationists claimed victory on Tuesday after Idaho wildlife managers suspended the killing of wolves in a protected wilderness area for preying on elk prized by commercial hunters. The state's Department of Fish and Game hired a hunter last year to trap and kill wolves in the central Idaho mountains, responding to complaints from sportsmen who say the wolves threatened big-game animals. The push by state wildfire managers to kill wolves was challenged by a lawsuit from conservation groups represented by the environmental law firm Earthjustice that said it violated principles of limiting human intervention in wilderness areas. Overall, Idaho aims to reduce its total wolf population to 150, from about 600 now, through recreational trapping and hunting, and state wolf-control actions including shooting from aircraft.
