EDITORIAL: Panama Papers are a bigger deal than you think

If you haven’t heard of the Panama Papers or don’t know what they mean, then you’ve seriously misjudged the gravity of the situation. You see, it turns out that the stereotypical trope of rich people hiding away all of their money in a “Swiss bank account” is actually true, except the accounts happen to be in Panama.

EDITORIAL: Background checks of Police

The National Decertification Index is, surprisingly, not widely used. The index contains the names of all police officers that have been decertified in their jurisdiction for things such as insubordination or misconduct.

EDITORIAL: ISIS attacks called 'genocide'

The terror that is sweeping through the Middle East known as ISIS now has the official label of genocide from the United States government. The editorial board hopes that this will spur some action and collaboration with the international community against ISIS.
