Oregon cops post 'I am Darren Wilson' images on Facebook

PORTLAND, Ore. -- The chief of Portland, Ore.'s police on Monday ordered three officers to remove"I am Darren Wilson" images from their Facebook pages.

The image in question refers to the officer who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri on Aug. 9. An "I am Darren Wilson" bracelet is shown wrapped around a Portland Police Bureau badge.

PPB Chief Michael Reese and Mayor Charlie Hales issued statements about the Facebook posts on Monday morning, just hours before a grand jury decision would likely be announced in the case.

"I was alerted to these images this morning and immediately ordered their removal through the officers' chain of command," Reese said. "The image displayed does not represent this organization and was very inflammatory in nature. Officers certainly have a right to have and express their opinions but not using an official badge of the Portland Police Bureau."

Vatican’s new sex abuse prosecutor previously failed to report abusive U.S. priest

An American priest who was appointed by the Vatican to prosecute sex-abuse cases previously played a role in the church’s failure to remove one of the most infamous abusive priests from the ministry, according to an investigation by the Boston Globe.

The Rev. Robert Geisinger, a Jesuit canon lawyer, was named the Vatican’s “promoter of justice” for U.S. abuse cases in September, a position roughly analogous to chief prosecutor. But back in the 1990′s, Geisinger was the second-highest ranking official among Chicago Jesuits just before sex abuse accusations against the now-defrocked Jesuit priest Donald McGuire became public. McGuire is currently serving a 25-year sentence in federal prison.

Court documents found by the Globe indicate that Geisinger was personally aware of multiple complaints against McGuire as early as 1995 — and that he provided advice on disciplinary matters pertaining to the priest as late as August 2002. In 2003, a former student at Loyola Academy filed a lawsuit accusing McGuire of molesting him repeatedly in 1968 and 1969.

Although the Jesuits initially claimed that the 2003 lawsuit was the first they’d heard of accusations against the priest, evidence eventually indicated that the Chicago Jesuits knew about and concealed McGuire’s crimes for decades.

Misunderstood Medicine: 'I feel like a normal boy'

EUGENE, Ore. - A week after his eighth birthday, Forrest Smelser was diagnosed with epilepsy.

On bad days he would seize every 15 minutes.

"If he has a seizure that lasts longer than three minutes, we're venturing into brain damage territory," his mother Tanesha said.

After numerous trips to the emergency room and the doctor's office, Forrest was prescribed the anti-seizure drug Trileptal.

Tanesha said that's when things went from bad to worse.

Rand Paul's Draft Declaration of War Dismays Peace Advocates

Sen. Rand Paul risks alienating a key constituency with his vigorous support for fighting the Islamic State group, leading anti-war advocates say.

Paul, R-Ky., unveiled Monday a draft declaration of war he plans to introduce in December to target the Iraq- and Syria-based rebel group, which has beheaded three American hostages as purported revenge for U.S. airstrikes that began in August.

The last time Congress officially declared war was in the early 1940s after the Pearl Harbor attack.

Paul's legislation would repeal the 2002 Iraq War authorization, an action the Obama administration supports, and would set a one-year timer on the 2001 anti-al-Qaida authorization, which the administration currently cites as allowing the war against the Islamic State group.
