"I don't think he's going to die," a reporter whispered as the inmate's final ordeal, on the execution gurney, just kept going.
From the day Joseph Rudolph Wood III was condemned to death, it had taken 23 years for Arizona to finally get him into the execution chamber.

How we died in 1900 vs. what's killing us now.

“I’m going to put one of those on every cop we kill,” the Las Vegas cop shooter told a friend as he brought out swastikas in advance of the rampage. Neighbor Kelly Fielder remembers. “I’m thinking ‘Right. They’re not going to do that.’”
Officials on Monday identified Jerad and Amanda Miller, a young married couple from Indiana who acquaintances said grew increasingly disillusioned with police and government officials, as the shooters in the rampage that left two police officers and a Wal-Mart shopper dead.

Cases of Border Patrol agents banging detainees heads, sexual abuse--many of these cases produce few consequences for the agents.
In April 2011, a Border Patrol agent was ordered to undergo counseling after an immigrant filed a formal complaint charging that the agent had slammed the man's head against a rock near Tucson.

Her son rushed the Las Vegas cop killers with a gun of his own--and  quickly died, not realizing the guy he was rushing had a wife who was also armed. A mother's lament.
The funeral home worker paused outside the chapel door Tuesday morning, his face a grim mask of composure.

Dave who? The guy was 30 points behind at one point, didn't even show up for a key campaign event on the eve of the election because he had finals at school. What happened?
A short drive from the luxury hotel where House Majority Leader Eric Cantor had just conceded a stunning defeat Tuesday night, supporters of his unknown and underfunded primary opponent were trying to make sense of it all.

;At least 1,000 unaccompanied children who crossed illegally into the United States through Texas are being taken to a makeshift emergency shelter in Arizona over the weekend, the latest effort by authorities scrambling to handle what has been described as a humanitarian crisis.

"You're too late, sweetheart," a Phoenix woman whose husband, a Navy veteran, had just died of bladder cancer after waiting for a VA appointment. "He's already dead."
Three years ago Edward Laird, a 76-year-old Navy veteran, noticed two small blemishes on his nose. His doctor at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Phoenix ordered a biopsy, but month after month, as the blemishes grew larger, Laird couldn't get an appointment.

It was a textbook case of how to handle a disease outbreak, experts say of first U.S. outbreak of the scary Middle Eastern virus, MERS.
The man arrived at the hospital with a fever and a bad cough. Relatives accompanied him through the doors, beneath the red neon sign reading "Emergency."

Here's our report from the scene at Bunkerville, where militiamen and "patriots" from across the country have come to the defense of rancher Cliven Bundy.
The conflict between cattleman Cliven Bundy and the federal Bureau of Land Management attracted scores of self-styled militiamen.
