District Attorney: Sentencing Rules Need To Be Changed
ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley said Tuesday that the case of a man charged with a rape in downtown Rochester this weekend is a prime example of why even non-violent offenders should be given a determinant sentence. Michael Caruthers was convicted of robbery in the 3rd degree. Since this is a non-violent offense, Caruthers was given an indeterminate sentence of 2 1/2 to 5 years. Caruthers served just over two years. Caruthers, 23, is charged with rape, criminal sexual act and criminal obstruction of breathing. Police said that he raped a girl around 7:30 a.m. Saturday in downtown Rochester, just hours after he had been released from prison.

In wake of Ferguson shooting, progressives demand federal police czar
In the eyes of many progressives and civil rights advocates, the police shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri earlier this month was a tragic and familiar story: the latest example of the law enforcement community's prejudiced administration of justice. Now, a group of notables and activists, joined by several members of the Congressional Black Caucus, are demanding the establishment of a federal police "czar," employed by the Justice Department, to oversee local law enforcement practices and help prevent racial bias in policing.

Public service campaign in Milwaukee seeks reports of animal abuse
Hundreds of "lost pet" fliers were posted Wednesday around Milwaukee. The fliers aren't focused on a single dog or cat. Instead, they encourage residents to call 911 to report animal abuse. The marketing effort is part a public service campaign in Milwaukee to highlight the link between animal abuse and domestic abuse and to encourage people to call 911 to report both.
