Suspect in kids' slayings waives court appearance

The South Carolina man suspected of killing his five children waived his right to his first hearing Monday morning, the Lexington County clerk of courts office said. 

In a brief filed by his legal counsel, Timothy Jones Jr. said he had been advised by his attorneys not to appear, in part because it “is entirely unnecessary and will undermine my ability to receive a fair trial,” according to CNN affiliate WIS. The brief reportedly goes on to say, “Since this hearing is for the sole purpose of parading me in front of the media, it is my wish to waive my appearance.” WIS reports he is currently on suicide watch and being kept away from other inmates.

America's war on wolves

America's war on wolves

The U.S. government rescued wolves from extinction over 35 years ago.  Now, critics say the government has completely changed course and is engineering the wholesale slaughter of grey wolves in several states.

Since the gray wolf was removed from the endangered species list in several states three years ago, Predator Defense estimates about 2,800 wolves have been killed in 6 states.  And there are only about 5,000 grey wolves left in the lower 48 states!  Wolf hunting is allowed in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.  Critics say wolf hunting is vicious and violent, and that it's driving wolves to the brink of extinction once again.  Sport hunters shoot these wolves, sometimes from helicopters.  These poor wolves--and even household pets--get caught in traps and suffer long, painful deaths.
