Crime

The D squad: Some Harnett deputies bring harm, residents say

More than a dozen people describe incidents of abuse or harassment by Deputy Nicholas Kehagias or a few other deputies on D squad; several complained to authorities

Kehagias charged far more civilians in 2014 and 2015 with resisting a public officer than any other deputy in the sheriff’s office

Sheriff and district attorney had no protocol for detecting indications of excessive force

UNC’s new NOA a challenge for NCAA, too

The UNC scandal apparently has the NCAA tied in knots over its role in policing academic fraud, despite perennially touting the happy marriage of academics and athletics at its member institutions.

America’s suicide epidemic a national security crisis

The National Center for Health Statistics recently released a major study, examining the national trends in suicide. The results are grim: The age-adjusted suicide rate in the United States increased a staggering 24 percent from 1999 to 2014. Increases were seen in every age group except for those 75 and above and in every racial and gender category except for black men. The national rate rose to 13 deaths per 100,000 people in 2014. Contrast that with homicide, which killed 5.1 Americans per 100,000 in 2013. We instinctively fear the murderer hiding in the bushes, but we are at far greater risk from ourselves.
