Heartland terrorists want Trump fans on their jury

In a motion that calls to mind one of the more defamatory names that Trump supporters have been called — deplorables — the defense team for three men accused of domestic terrorism are seeking Trump voters for the jury. Heck of a way to find some leniency for men who plotted to murder Somali immigrants in Garden City, Kan.

Teen writes about living at home with the crack addict her mother married

"I sat outside my home and listened to my sister scream for help," wrote Kayla Perez, 21, of Overland Park, who is the author of the first story in a new book, "Welcome to My Neighborhood." It is framed as a children's book, similar to Golden Books, but the stories are true, dire and grim. They're written by teenagers in the Youth Ambassador program, including Perez, who penned her story when she was 17 years old and living under the same roof as a crack addict her mother had married. The book, a pro bono project of the advertising and marketing company VML, will be introduced to Kansas City civic leaders at a dinner Tuesday. The Youth Ambassador program promotes youth development and addresses social and academic challenges for underserved teenagers.
