Police in Pennsylvania are searching for a jail inmate suspected of killing a woman after walking away from a work-release program in the western part of the state. Robert Crissman, 38, ran from the jail about 6:30 a.m. Thursday while delivering meals to other inmates. Crissman was in prison on a drug charge probation violation, and was not considered violent. Not anymore. In a news conference Thursday night, the DA said he left the jail and went right to the home on 110 Rayburn Road. A man in the house then left for work, but came home later and found the body of his girlfriend, 55-year-old Tammy Long. The cause of death remains under investigation. The DA added that the couple did not know that Mr. Crissman was an escaped prisoner, but knew him as an acquaintance.

Science has picked up the ball that common courtesy could not hold onto. Faced with increasing numbers of dog owners who did not properly pick up after their dogs, a community group voted to have all neighborhood dogs submit their DNA, so when some of their business was left behind, it could be tested, and the culprit scientifically identified, and we should add, fined $250. While some at first worried that they could be framed by enemies who might poach the poop from the wastebasket, the program has apparently worked very effectively, and may be a model for other neighborhoods facing similar problems.

The former University of Cincinnati police officer indicted in the shooting death of an unarmed black man during a traffic stop was in a Hamilton County court briefly on Thursday. Ray Tensing entered a plea of not guilty to a charge of murder. Tensing has said he was justified in shooting and killing Samuel Dubose, an unarmed black motorist, after a traffic stop. A video shown by the prosecutor played a big part in his indictment, but Tensing’s defense attorney says a second body camera shows the officer on the ground at one point during the encounter, and being dragged by DuBose’s vehicle. Tensing was released after posting bail, described as being in a state of shock.

The New England Patriots and their star quarterback fired back at the NFL Wednesday after the league denied Tom Brady’s deflate-gate appeal. Tom Brady said he did nothing wrong and said it was “disappointing” his four-game suspension was upheld. For his part, Patriots owner Robert Kraft used stronger language saying the decision was “unfathomable”; that he thought accepting the million dollar fine and draft pick forfeitures imposed on the team over deflated footballs would make it easier for the commissioner to ease Brady’s punishment but Kraft said he was wrong to put his faith in the league. The player’s union said it would attempt now to get the suspension overturned in court.

FBI arrests for attempting to provide support to ISIS seem to be an everyday occurrence lately. Part of this frequency appears to be attributed to a change in strategy by authorities. The FBI is now apprehending people suspected of being Islamic State sympathizers soon after they hit the government’s radar, rather than observing first. This, in response to recent efforts by ISIS to inspire Americans to commit violence. Brad discusses this strategic shift. Also, the shootings in Charleston and Lafayette, brings attention to problems inherent in the firearms background check system. And finally, police officer charged with murder in Cincinnati, done in by his own body-cam. Brad on whether the push is on for departments around the country to add dash and body-cams, and whether it will also put new scrutiny on campus police departments.
