HURRICANE, [WV]—A resident of Hurricane woke up Tuesday morning to find out he was one of hundreds to receive KKK materials laying in his front yard. The literature was in a plastic bag with rocks in it to keep the package from blowing away. City leaders believe the distribution was done overnight. Those who received the KKK materials were quick to react. The only thing police can do to those who are distributing the material is cite them for littering because this material is protected free speech. The contact information listed a Beckley address and phone number. We called to get a comment but got a recording instead. Hurricane city leaders received hundreds of calls of concern over t

UNITED STATES, [US]—According to the U.S. Secret Service field office in Seattle, agents here respond to multiple threats each day. Agents are then responsible for determining the credibility of the threat. While the Secret Service says they take every threat against the president seriously, not all will end in arrest. A Secret Service spokesperson said many of those who make such threats are mentally ill, and it is the goal of the Secret Service to find them help. It can be "sobering," he said, when agents show up at their door. According to the Secret Service, the president is the most threatened person in the U.S., regardless of political party. He is not made aware of all threats again

INDIANAPOLIS, [IN]—Four people have been charged in a real estate fraud scheme involving bad checks and renting out homes already in foreclosure. The Marion County Prosecutor's Office filed charges Tuesday in connection with three separate cases in which suspects are accused of taking possession of homes that they did not own, and then renting them out for profit. Shela Amos and Beverly Cannedy, who both worked with the Tertius Malachi & James Youth Foundation, claimed to own six homes and collected $19,000 from victims they purported to sell or rent the homes, according to the probable cause affidavit. Both Amos and Cannedy identified themselves as so-called sovereign citizens, a grow

PROVO, [UT]—Federal prosecutors have arrested and indicted a Spanish Fork woman for her role in a multibillion dollar mail scam targeting court officials. According to charging documents, Maria Melody Fuentes Cecil, 42, was arraigned Monday on four counts of mail fraud. She is being held in jail as a result of outstanding Utah warrants. Authorities also arrested Robert Clifton Tanner, 44, of Mansura, La., for participating in the scheme. The documents reveal that on March 9, Cecil also tried to file a "notice of expatriation," which, according to U.S. court spokeswoman Melodie Rydalch, was "an effort to declare herself a sovereign citizen." In June, after the sovereign citizen request was

LOS ANGELES, [CA]—Senior police officials on Wednesday warned of potential terrorist attacks in Southern California amid a growing risk of war breaking out overseas. “In this region we have active terrorist plots, in this region, right now,” said Deputy Chief Michael Downing, commanding officer of the LAPD’s counter-terrorism unit. The Department is currently tracking “government of Iran operatives, Hezbollah, sovereign citizen, homegrown violent extremists, animal rights groups” and others, Downing said. The stark warning comes amid a policy shift from the Los Angeles Police Commission, which approved new guidelines on how officers can document what they deem to be suspicious be

LUDOWICI, [GA]—A U.S. Army soldier’s revelation that his group, FEAR, planned terrorist attacks at home, including trying to assassinate the president, underscores the growing threat of domestic extremism—and vindicates a 2009 DHS report warning of right-wing radicals recruiting military-service people. On Monday, Pfc. Michael Burnett told a Georgia courtroom that last December he had watched as a fellow soldier shot a 17-year-old girl in the woods near their base, “checked [her] pulse and then shot her again.” He was pleading guilty to manslaughter related to his involvement in the deaths of a former soldier, Michael Roark, and his young girlfriend. But what was even more chilling

SAN FRANCISCO, [CA]—This winter, the baddest vegetarians on earth bombed the biggest cattle ranch in the state. An inquiry into a combustible culture where protest meets terrorism. Jesus is Lord of Coalinga. A billboard with a rainbow and a dove on it says so as you enter the San Joaquin Valley town of 19,100, just off I-5, 200 miles from San Francisco. This is one of those shadow places that does our state's dirty work - the stuff coastal Californians depend on but prefer to not to have to look at. View More>>

FAIRBANKS, [AK]—Lonnie and Karen Vernon of Salcha, Alaska, north of Fairbanks in the state's Interior, are giving up their fight against the feds. No jury of their peers will decide whether the couple really planned to kill a federal judge and an IRS worker, crimes they are accused of. Instead, they will go straight to sentencing. On Monday, the Vernons, Lonnie, 56, and his wife, Karen, 66, told the judge overseeing their case they are guilty as charged. The plea agreements bring to an end the high-profile cases generated from an investigation into an anti-government, Fairbanks-based militia with sovereign-citizen leanings. View More>>

UNITED STATES, [US]—Most experts on national and foreign policy would likely agree that Tom Head, the Texas Judge who suggested a win by Obama in November may lead to an invasion of Texas by the United Nations, is wrong. In fact, the UN will not “mess with Texas,” Martin Nesirky, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s spokesman, tells Reuters. Thanks to a stubbornly poor economy and philosophical – some would say foundational – high stakes apparent in the presidential election, it’s clear from political blogs, letters to the editor, and word on the street that tensions are running high in the country, and that extends to politics. The recent shooting of a guard at the conservative
