Three questions as the North London derby build-up begins

Three questions as the North London derby build-up begins

Sports
Morning all. The build up the derby begins in earnest today with Arsene Wenger set to meet the press this morning. The early, if unofficial, team news, suggests that Petr Cech should be fit, Nacho Monreal has recovered from illness, and Danny Welbeck is back in contention for a place in the squad. All of those things will be confirmed by the manager later on, and there are other questions that hopefully he’ll answer as we prepare for what is a crucial Wembley encounter. Such as: Back three or back four? The back four worked well at home against Crystal Palace and Everton. We won both games, scored 9 goals and conceded two, but it did not work when we went to Swansea in the middle of those two fixtures. You could ask if it was simply an off night all round, and that’s probably n...

ICE attorney charged after stealing immigrants' identities to defraud credit card companies

They’re stealing immigrants’ identities to commit fraud. And some, I assume, are good people: The chief counsel for the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement Seattle field office was charged with stealing the identities of seven people who were involved in immigration proceedings, according to court documents. Raphael A. Sanchez allegedly devised a plan to defraud several financial institutions by using their identities to obtain money and property over a fou

‘I’m sick:’ man flagged down police to tell them he sexually assaulted a child

Breaking News
CLEVELAND - Video from an Ohio police officer's body camera shows a man surrendering to police after he sexually assaulted a child in July. Police say he flagged down an officer with the young child in the backseat of his vehicle. On the video, you can hear the officers saying, "I pulled in here and stopped. He pulled in here and said take me to jail. I did something really bad." You also hear Fry interacting with police. He said, "I'm sick. I'm sick.” An officer then asked, "I understand you're sick. But what'd you do?" Fry, at one point, said, "I hurt her. In a way somebody should never be hurt.” Cuyahoga County prosecutors handled the court case since it began in Cleveland. Prosecutors rarely see someone surrender as Fry did. But they have noticed an increase in sex assault cases leadi
