Cities and mayors like this, himself an immigrant, are lining up to defy their new president. We are looking at whether this person is a criminal, are they causing problems in the community? That has nothing to do with whether or not they have documentation. That is not our job to be the immigration police. So what does a Trump supporter and secretary of Make California Great Again say to his worried neighbours? Make sure you play by the rules.

The U.N. Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights is urging Iran to stop the execution of a man who was a juvenile when sentenced in 2012. Sajad Sanjari was 15 years old when an Iranian court sentenced him to death for fatally stabbing a man. In 2014, he was granted a retrial under a new Islamic Penal Code, but the following year, a provincial criminal court rejected his argument that he acted in self-defense against a would-be rapist. The court confirmed the death sentence, saying Sanjari was mature enough to understand the nature of his crime. This ruling was upheld by Iran's Supreme Court last year. A spokesman for the human rights office, Rupert Colville, says Iran is one of a few countries that still executes juvenile offenders. He says the use of capital punishment on anyone under the age of 18 is a violation of international human rights law.

It said this. "We would never seek to influence political debate on any subject in any way. Equally, we must take all appropriate steps to ensure that our decision-making processes are protected from political influence from any source. This is necessary both to safeguard the integrity of prosecutorial decision-making within the wider criminal justice system, and to ensure that PPS staff are able to carry out difficult but important functions strictly in accordance with applicable law and the Code for Prosecutors.

John Krasinski, Hollywood actor and The Devil Wears Prada' s number one fan, wasn't always synonymous with The Office or being one half of the cutest celebrity couple ever . In fact, Krasinski, like many other hallowed actors before him, cut his teeth in the entertainment industry by appearing on one of television's most beloved franchises: Law & Order, where he appeared on an episode of the Criminal Intent offshoot as a high school basketball player in 2004, according to IMDB . In a post shared on Twitter early on Monday morning, Krasinski shared a throwback to his appearance on the show, wryly captioning it with the series' infamous phrase, these are their stories and adding a onomatopoeia of the theme song. See the photo below. These are their stories... DUN, DUN! https://t.co/vKKrg8b46i John Krasinski (@johnkrasinski) January 17, 2017 So many got their start on Law & Order.

I just wanted the best for them. None of them has got criminal records. I have worked hard for that. But in June 2015, her worst nightmare came true. Renea and one of his brothers had gone out together to a rave in south London. Both had new jobs, and Renea's partner was expecting another baby. It should have been an evening of celebration. It ended with the brothers being stabbed when a fight broke out. I got to the hospital, said, 'My son's Renea,' went through the back and saw Rico on the bed.

Often in our experience what people are looking for is just a validation of people saying we believe you were raped. Denise Clair today gave a short statement. She said: "I am pleased by today's verdict. "However I am bitterly disappointed that I was "so badly let down by the criminal justice system "and was forced to seek a remedy through the civil court." Tonight the Crown Office maintain there wasn't enough evidence in law to get a criminal conviction. Both clubs will not field the players until they read the full ruling.

" A successful civil claim is this kind of case is unprecedented in modern times. Campaigners hope that other victims will see they can receive justice, even if it is not through criminal courts. Most reported rapes to the police do not make it to court and that can be really devastating and I think the woman's bravery in this case does give hope to other rape survivors to be thinking maybe "there are other ways I could somehow get justice".

“But social networks also have a duty,” he said. “It can’t be in Facebook’s interest that its platform is misused in order to spread lies and hate campaigns. Criminal content should be deleted immediately once it has been reported. And it must be easier for users to report fake news.” Germany’s Justice Ministry will draft a bill that will include a “catalog of fines” for violations, Volker Kauder, Merkel’s top lieutenant in parliament, told reporters Saturday. Thomas Oppermann, his counterpart in the Social Democratic Party, Merkel’s coalition partner, last month told Der Spiegel that the penalties could reach 500,000 euros ($532,000), and that sites like Facebook should also be required to publish corrections after removing criminal posts. The fines “have to hurt, otherwise they wont work,” Kauder said. And while many would say this is yet another unprecedented attempt of the left to collude with the mainstream media in an effort to censor their political opposition, Merkel's CDU party would like for you to rest assured that their fake news crusade is simply intended to protect Germany’s democratic process against manipulation.

Udo Ulfkotte has also been part of the increased controversy in Germany about how to handle the growing refugee crisis, as migrants from the Middle East and Africa flee war zones and poverty. Facebook temporarily blocked his page in July 2016 after he bought an ad for his new book titled Boundless Criminal, which exposes alleged cover-ups by authorities and mainstream media to hide crimes committed by migrants. The message he received from the social network read that the content of the postingviolated its guidelines,” likely because of a perceived anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim message. “I dont claim every migrant to be a criminal, that would absolutely not be correct, but we have not checked which people that we in our country,” Ulfkotte told RT when asked about his positions. Prior to the current crisis, Ulfkotte had expressed concerns about the “Islamization” of Germany for 15 years, writing multiple books on the subject.

The number of crimes involving a firearm also rose significantly last year. Gun homicides, shootings, and robberies involving a gun all saw double-digit percentage increases over 2015. Most of the city's murder increase is concentrated in just a few neighborhoods on Chicago's South and West sides, but the report's authors note that the reasons behind the rise are still unknown. Weather appears not to have played a factor, and the number of arrests for homicides and shootings held steady compared to 2015. But since homicides and shootings rose last year, those stagnant arrest numbers meant more of those crimes remained unsolved than in previous years, and the report's authors believe the lack of arrests following violent crimes may have played a role in worsening a cycle of retaliatory violence. The problem in Chicago, the authors concluded, is not a widespread change in anti-social or criminal behavior in general, but rather a narrower one of gun crimes committed in public places, frequently by young people in our city's most distressed neighborhoods.
