Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel, who was released from prison last year after he was granted a new trial in the 1975 slaying of a neighbor, has received approval to have a GPS tracking device temporarily relocated from his ankle while he attends his son’s ski competition.
During an earlier ski competition this month, Skakel was unable to accompany his son up the mountain with other parents because his ankle couldn’t fit in the ski boot with the bracelet, his attorneys said in court papers. As a result, they said he was required to hike up the mountain alone, which took two to three hours and induced an asthma attack.
Skakel received approval to have probation officials relocate the bracelet on his body later this month so he can ski alongside his son, who is competing in state championships at Lake Placid and high school championships.
Skakel, the 53-year-old nephew of Robert F. Kennedy’s widow, Ethel, had been in prison more than 11 years on a sentence of 20 years to life. A judge ruled in October that Skakel’s trial attorney failed to adequately represent him in 2002 when he was convicted in Martha Moxley’s bludgeoning with a golf club in wealthy Greenwich when they were both 15.

On Friday, a Louisiana Federal court said that Obama’s lawyers had given up on a claim demanding that education vouchers for each white, black and Latino kid be held up by federal authorities, on the grounds that school choice could change the racial composition of schools.
The DOJ’s new demand is that all vouchers be subject to 45-day legal review.
The change is a big win for Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia and other high-powered House Republicans who have championed the school choice revolution in post-Katrina New Orleans.
GOP leaders are joining the fight partly because of their ideological support for school choice, but also to showcase support for American parents who are struggling to rescue their kids from failing, crime-ridden, autocratic, union-controlled, mandatory government-run schools.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has fought Obama’s lawyers tooth-and-nail to protect the state’s Louisiana Scholarship program.

A new deadly “game” called “Knockout” is crossing the nation, especially among black teenagers, in which they try to punch a randomly-selected person walking by on the street so hard with one blow that knocks them unconscious—but the results have sometime proven fatal.
In the New York area in particular, there also seems to be an anti-Semitic motivation to some of the attacks. One black teen, asked why the players savagely attack their victims, simply said, “For the fun of it.” Another added, “They just want to see if you got enough strength to knock somebody out.”
The attacks, also called “Knock Out King” or “happy slapping,” have occurred from Syracuse to New York City to New Jersey to St. Louis. The list of attacks is frightening, and that only includes the ones that have been made public.

Sa far the Liberal Media has ignored these crimes because the perpetrators are almost always Black, and the victims almost always white, and thus it doesn’t fit the Liberal narrative that Blacks are the victims of whites.
According to the Virginia Public Access Project, author John Grisham donated an additional $25,000 to Virginia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Terry McAuliffe’s campaign on October 29. This new donation brings the total of Grisham’s contributions to McAuliffe’s 2013 campaign to $75,000.
Breitbart News reported last week that Grisham donated $25,000 on March 28, 2013 and another $25,000 on September 18, 2013 to the McAuliffe campaign.
Grisham, a lifelong Democrat who served as a member of the Mississippi House of Representatives from 1983 to 1990, lives part of the year in North Garden, an exclusive residential area near Charlottesville, Virginia.

The global social attitudes study claims that the most racially intolerant populations are all in the developing world, with Jordan and India in the top five.
By contrast, the study of 80 countries over three decades found Western countries were most accepting of other cultures with Britain, the U.S., Canada and Australia more tolerant than anywhere else.
The survey asked individuals what types of people they would refuse to live next to, and counted how many chose the option ‘people of a different race’ as a percentage for each country.
Researchers have suggested that societies where more people do not want neighbors from other races can be considered less racially tolerant.
Racist views are strikingly rare in the U.S., according to the survey, which claims that only 3.8 per cent of residents are reluctant to have a neighbor of another race.
