INDIANAPOLIS — Marion County prosecutors secure a pair of murder convictions Wednesday night as they begin to dig out from a massive backlog of cases.
That court backlog also doesn’t include delays in trials for robberies, rapes and other violent crimes.

Oregon city issues emergency declaration to fight liberal governor’s COVID edicts. Now other local governments are asking them how they did it.
“After we got no response from the governor,” McQuisten told PJ Media, “we brought forth the Emergency Declaration, and batted the language back and forth for a couple of weeks.”
That led to the emergency declaration the city council passed March 23. The declaration cites Brown’s “arbitrary, ineffective, and draconian” executive orders and the lack of legal ability the city has to “flout” the mandates, which keeps the municipality from defending local businesses.
It also notes that “that neither city, county nor state government has the legal right to flout the Oregon State Constitution or the United States Constitution” and that “our citizens are fully capable of making their private, individual healthcare and lifestyle decisions themselves.”

So, what do the statistics show? Dr. Risch argues we’ve entered into a vaccine ‘mania’ in which there seems to be a ‘different motivation’ than just vaccinating for health benefits alone.
