DNA eliminated him as a suspect but he was still convicted. The system betrayed him.

Edit: Wait, are you looking for information stating the victim’s race or the fact that she claims to have never seen a black person before? Regarding the latter, I couldn’t find any other mention of that and was surprised by reading it.

I think there's a public perception that Haskell is having concerns related to money mismanagement and nepotism. Before increasing funding to Haskell, perhaps an independent financial audit and employee review should be conducted. Haskell University is an asset to the community and it would be unfair to the students and faculty to let it continue to slide.

"If responsible gun owners are around then..."
That's a big "if" and there's the problem. Many of the Kansas gun owners seem to be of the "hold my beer" mentality. How many Kansas gun owners do you know that have actually taken a gun safety course? Now, how many times have you heard of a gun owner accidentally firing his weapon in a restaurant, shooting his kid while cleaning his gun, leaving a loaded handgun unattended in a committee meeting? But, yeah, it's a constitutional right to carry a loaded gun without knowing how to properly use it, so yee-haw!

This wouldn't be as much of an issue if Kansas required safety training for gun owners. Many of the stories we read are about people accidentally shooting someone rather than using their gun to stop a crime. When discussing Kansas gun owners, we are often (not always) talking about the gang that couldn't shoot straight. If you want to walk around carrying a gun in Kansas, no training is required. But if you want to give somebody a manicure the state requires 350 hours of cosmetology training. Think about that.

Angel, check Petfinder.com. You can search for any breed and it will locate adoptable dogs in your area at various shelters or foster homes. The Humane Society can only adopt what is brought to the shelter, sometimes there are small dogs and sometimes there aren't.
It's not unusual for adoption fees to be two or three hundred dollars because it often includes spay/neutering, a vet exam and blood tests. A dog from a breeder will often be triple or quadruple that amount. Dogs aren't cheap to take care of, so keep that in mind. The cost of vet visits, dental cleanings and food can add up over the course of a year. I hope you find the pet you're looking for.

Good grief. Rome burned once already, wasn't that enough?

That's my point, chief. If the activist community truly cared about these people they would assist them to get citizenship using available means instead of helping them continue to break the law.

Sanctuary cities are a heartless idea. Instead of trying to sweep these people under a rug in order to hide them, how about taking steps to help them acquire citizenship. A sanctuary city is a band-aid that offers no real help for those affected as it doesn't change their status. Many of us find it odd when we hear of a person who is at risk for deportation....after spending 20 years in the USA. Activists should drop the idea of sanctuary cities and focus their efforts on streamlining the citizenship process. Help these people become legal, tax-paying Americans instead of encouraging them to continue living in the shadows.
