Human rights groups call for drug decriminalization

Two prominent human rights groups have recently stepped forward to call for changes to our federal laws that even a decade ago would have seemed unthinkable — the decriminalization of possession and personal use of drugs of all kinds. Human Rights Watch and the American Civil Liberties Union, two of the most highly-regarded organizations in their field, released a joint statement just days ago insisting that the harsh enforcement of drug laws has done far more to ruin lives and tear apart families than it has done to minimize drug abuse. The two organizations also backed a report detailing findings supporting their claims.

Man charged in road rage shooting

A Wichita man has been charged with second-degree murder in a fatal shooting that may not be as simple as it may at first seem. The victim was found dead in the driver's seat of his SUV, shot to death. A passenger in the SUV was treated for minor injuries at a local hospital.

Teenage man shot in drug deal gone bad

Drug related crimes and violent crimes far too often go hand in hand, and the victims are not always those directly involved, unfortunately. A Wichita teen painfully learned this lesson the hard way recently when he was injured while in the vicinity of a drug deal that went sideways.

violent crimes have increased in Wichita

Wichita is a wonderful city in the heart of the country, but it is also a surprisingly violent city, according to recent FBI statistics. The bureau's report "Crime in the United States" breaks down the numbers on our fair city's instances of crime in 2015, and some of the figures are quite concerning. The yearly report also featured the return of Wichita as a profiled city, while the same report in 2014 did not cover it.
