Topeka Loses Its Damn Mind, Repeals Law Against Domestic Violence

Girlfriend-Killer Bobby Cutts' Tears Convince No One

Remember Bobby Cutts? The cop who killed his pregnant girlfriend, Jessie Davis? Well his trial is going on right now, and his boneheaded defense team is having Cutts plead not guilty — and then allowing Cutts to testify saying that he did, in fact, murder Davis.
