Feds to Free 6,000 Inmates Early

Feds to free 6.000In July, Barack Obama announced that he would issue presidential clemency to approximately 80 non-violent drug offenders. This news was great, but 80 prisoners doesn’t even come close to being a drop in the bucket that is the prison industrial complex.

However, all of that is about to change. On Tuesday, the Justice Department announced that they will release about 6,000 inmates between October 30 and November 2. This will be the largest ever one-time release of federal prisoners in the history of the United States.

More items ‘consistent’ with missing El Faro ship recovered by Coast Guard: officials

Cargo ship parts foundU.S. Coast Guard rescuers found more items Sunday that likely came from the vanished cargo ship El Faro — but still have no sign of what happened to the 33 people on board, including 28 Americans.

Life-Threatening Floods Worsen in South Carolina

South Carolia floodingA dangerous rainstorm drenching the East Coast brought more misery Sunday to South Carolina — cutting power to thousands, forcing dozens of water rescues around the capital city and closing "too many roads to name" because of floodwaters.

Early Sunday, emergency management officials sent a statewide alert telling people to stay off roads and remain indoors unless their homes were in danger of flooding. Interstates were closed by flooding in several spots, and nearly 30,000 customers were without power.


Alabama judges use segregation-era law to avoid gay marriage

Nick WilliamsAs Alabama's all-white Legislature tried to preserve racial segregation and worried about the possibility of mixed-race marriages in 1961, lawmakers rewrote state law to make it optional for counties to issue marriage licenses.

Now, some judges who oppose same-sex marriage are using the long-forgotten amendment to get out of the marriage business altogether rather than risk issuing even one wedding license to gays or lesbians. In at least nine of Alabama's 67 counties, judges have quit issuing any marriage licenses since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex unions in June.
