Religious freedom advocates are calling on the West Covina Unified School District to adopt policy changes and issue a formal apology after an alleged incident involving bullying against a Christian student.

Advocates for Faith & Freedom, an Irvine-based nonprofit law firm, issued a letter Monday on behalf of Isaiah Martinez, a first grader at Merced Elementary School. On Dec. 13. 2013, Martinez took traditional candy canes as Christmas gifts for his teacher, Valerie Lu, and classmates, according to attorney Robert Tyler. Each candy cane came with a message attached that recited the history of the candy cane, including references to the candy as a symbol of Jesus Christ, according to the letter dated Jan. 6...

Leaked documents now show what we all suspected: the NSA can turn your iPhone's microphone and camera on and off without you knowing.

"The NSA's ANT division develops implants for mobile phones and SIM cards. One of these is a spyware implant called "DROPOUTJEEP" - designed for the first generation of iPhones - which was still in development in 2008, shortly after the iPhone's launch. This spyware was to make it possible to remotely download or upload files to a mobile phone. It would also, according to the catalog, allow the NSA to divert text messages, browse the user's address book, intercept voicemails, activate the phone's microphone and camera at will, determine the current cell site and the user's current location, "etc." ANT's technicians also develop modified mobile phones, for use in special cases that look like normal, standard devices, but transmit various pieces of information to the NSA - that can be swapped undetected with a target's own mobile phone or passed to informants and agents. In 2008, ANT had models from Eastcom and Samsung on offer, and it has likely developed additional models since."

Declassified documents prove them.

We all know the conspiracy theories - the government's plan for 9/11, the second gunman who shot JFK, the evolution of the elite from a race of blood-drinking, shape-shifting lizards. But the people who spread these ideas usually can't prove them. As the years pass, however, secrets surface. Government documents become declassified. We now have evidence of certain elaborate government schemes right here in the U.S. of A.

A Tennessee man was arrested yesterday for trying to pick his special needs kids up from school. The school wanted the parents to sign a form to allow their children to walk home "unsupervised."

Naturally these parents questioned the safety of this new policy. They went to school and called the Sheriff's department to voice their concern over the new policy, when one of the officers begins his power trip. At one point the father cites the law that allows for him to pick up his children when school is out. The officer then has the audacity to tell the father, "Yes, school is out you can pick up your child, but it doesn't say when, now, does it?" I'll be damned if some bureaucrat on a power trip is going to tell me when I can and cannot have access to my children.

There is now a THIRD victim of sexual molestation at hands of New Mexico authorities.

A dog alerted to the woman, and Schaur Ives said federal agents stripped searched her at the facility, asked her to undress, to spread her genitalia and to cough. Female agents also allegedly pressed their fingers into her vagina looking for drugs. The woman claims they didn't discover anything during the on-site strip search, so they took her to University Medical Center of El Paso. "First, medical staff observed her making a bowl movement and no drugs were found at that point," Schaur Ives said. "They then took an X-ray, but it did not reveal any contraband. They then did a cavity search and they probed her vagina and her anus, they described in the medical records as bi-manual-two handed. Finally, they did a cat scan. Again, they found nothing."

Two college roommates thought they could have a firearm when living off-campus. Little did they know their apartment was owned by the University.

Roommates Erik Fagan and Dan McIntosh, both seniors, may be expelled this week after they used McIntosh's pistol to repel a late-night trespasser from the doorway of their 207 E. Sinto Ave. apartment. Fagan answered a 10:15 p.m. knock on their front door Thursday, Oct. 24. A friend having just left their apartment, he assumed the friend had come back. Instead, John Michael Taylor, a felon who showed them his ankle bracelet tracker in an attempt to intimidate them, faced him. Taylor asked Fagan for money, and became agitated when Fagan turned him down. When he sensed Taylor might enter the apartment, Fagan yelled for McIntosh, who brandished his pistol, for which he has a concealed weapons permit. Taylor quickly fled. Little did they know, removing Taylor from their doorway would lead to potential university sanctions.

The morning after an accidental gun discharge during a police safety presentation at Newman Elementary School in Chino, angry parents want to know - how could this have happened?

Three students were injured by shrapnel after a student pulled the trigger on an assault rifle mounted on a Chino police motorcycle during a school assembly for Red Ribbon Week Wednesday. The assault rifle, an AR-15, was locked to the side of a motorcycle that was on display. According to Chino police spokeswoman Tamrin Olden, the bullet disintegrated when it hit a metal plate where the barrel rests against the weapons mount. That debris struck three children and caused minor injuries.
