May 1, 2005

By David Griffith

It was March 21, 2:55 p.m., spring was in the air in the remote north woods of Minnesota, and the students of Red Lake High School were anxiously awaiting the sound of the bell. What they heard instead was explosions out in the hallway.

Holding Back Home Occupants  

May 1, 2005

By Devallis Rutledge

When you go into a suspect’s home to execute a search warrant, it’s not uncommon to find several people present, whether suspects, family members, or others. Sometimes, occupants may outnumber officers on the scene. This can create problems of safety and control, making it more difficult to carry out the search.

Childhood's End  

April 1, 2005

By David Griffith

Records show that on Sept. 23, 1997, North Carolina Highway Patrol Sgt. Ed Lowry pulled a car with South Carolina plates on I-95 near Fayetteville.
