A look at the Islamic State group's reach into North Africa

Murdering innocent people, raping, selling children as sex slaves.... judging by all the people joining ISIS, these things must be in style. Disturbing.

Aggressive panhandling incidents escalate to robberies in Athens

"If you build it, they will come". Athens has built a homeless utopia, and they have come. Not all homeless are aggressive, but when you have as many as Athens does, you are sure to get the aggressive ones.

Family, friends say 3 slain in NC left a legacy of helping

If it is found this scum targeted these victims because they are Muslim, and this attack was premeditated, he needs to be put to death.

NYC officer pleads not guilty to manslaughter in shooting

@butterflyink21: do you have crystal ball that tells you he is getting away with it? Isn't he on trial? If he is guilty, do you want him to spend his life in prison? Do you think he wanted to shoot this guy? You think he is happy he killed an innocent human. How policeman do you think you will have if you start throwing cops who shoot people by accident in jail?

You say "one of them", like you are talking about ISIS. You say "you support the good ones"', like a large percentage of cops are evil. Keep your support to yourself. Go travel with a cop one night and see if you still hold them with such disdain. Let's see how easy you find it to discern if the suspect resisting arrest is carrying a concealed weapon. The general puplic has no clue what it is like to be a cop.

State Senate bill would allow easing of alcohol sales restrictions

@crackerjack: What exactly is the fear? First, it is only allowing local governments to make the decision. The bill is not actually changing the distance. Second, do people drink their beer in the grocery store parking lot? Do they drive over to the school and drink their beer?

The original law was fluffy feel good joke. Why is there even a barrier for churches?

Old questions about Saudi Arabia, 9/11 raised anew

If this story is true, did the Bush administration turn a blind eye towards Saudi Arabia; who we had evidence supported the 9/11 attacks, and than attack Iraq; who we had no evidence supported the 9/11 attacks? It makes no sense, but should be investigated.

@dahreese: Actually, ISIS is also killing Christians whenever they come across them. They are quite brutal to the Christians.

Instead of going back 2 centuries, we only need to look back to the Nazis to find a good comparison. Although not to the scale of the Nazis, this cult is every bit as evil as the Nazis.

I am an athiest, so I do not find your comparison to Christian fundamentalist insulting; however, the fundamentalists are not even in the same universe as ISIS.

This is what ISIS is all about. Slaughtering innocent people.

What a contrast. On one side, you have a girl who foes so much to help humanity. She is in Syria because she loves humanity. On the other side, you have people who are evil in every way. This week alone, the UN came out with a report saying ISIS was using Iraqi children as sex slaves. Pure evil.

Even as US job market picks up, unemployed face frustration

Carlie, who turned down the job selling at a booth in Cosco, is a great example of what is wrong with this country.

First, is she really too lazy to ask during the interview process what products she will be selling, how she will be selling the products, and who she will being selling to? She had 3 interviews and these questions were never asked? Who was the incompetent company who would hire someone who wouldn't ask these questions?

Second, who is this girl to think any job is beneath her? She only has a college education. She hasn't proven herself to anyone. You don't just get out of college and land your dream job. You have to proof yourself. Many kids today think everything should be handed to them.

Purported IS claim: Jordan airstrike kills female US hostage

If she was killed, nobodies fault but ISIS. I am sure they put her in harm's way on purpose. However, I agree with K. Jr. above. The UN just came out with a report claimig ISIS is using children as sex slaves in Iraq. No act is too satanic or these people. What's the chance this poor lady wasn't already dead.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
