Star Tribune yesterday morning reported on an off duty police officer driving off with two young boys. 

Tony Adams arrested the two boys after his doorbell was rang by someone who had fled. He then pulled along side the boys and ordered them in his car. Adams then drove to his house placed the boys on the curb in handcuffs.

The parents of one of the boys called 911 when he didn't arrive at home on time. They feel, even though Adams is a police officer, the case shouldn't be taken lightly.

"Tuesday the couple talked about how criminal charges filed against Adams will, in their view, make sure the incident isn't "brushed under the rug."

Adams was place on paid administrative leave last week, and is under internal investigation for similar charges.

"Chris Madel, Adams' attorney, said he was doing what any cop would have done if alerted to trouble in his neighborhood".

The true issue in this case is the point of if Adams had the right to make a Citizens arrest.

Amanda Knox's parents stand by her being innocence

CNN reported yesterday morning that Amanda Knox's parents are still holding on to the belief that their daughter is no killer.

With a plane ticket in hand for Amanda Knox return home, Curt Knox and Edda Mellas make their trip to Italy for the closing arguments.

Knox and Mellas stand by their daughter innocence. "She is totally nonviolent, almost a passive person," Mellas told CNN.

Knox and Mellas defend Amanda through providing past experiences in which Amanda showed no anger. "She couldn't even continue a kickboxing class because she felt it was too violent."

            Both parents cannot believe the story that the prosecutors have come with, that Amanda Knox murdered roommate Meredith Kercher out of a fit of revenge.

            Though Amanda Knox's parents believe she did not commit any sort crime but they still fill luckier than Meredith Kercher parents.

Google "apologizes" over offensive Michelle Obama image

CNN reported earlier this afternoon that Google has issued an "apology" for the results of 'Michelle Obama' image search.

            For the past week if users searched 'Michelle Obama' under an image search the first image to come up was that of an altered Michelle resembling an ape.

            Google seems to have pulled the image, "On Wednesday morning, the racially offensive image appeared to have been removed from any Google Image searches for "Michelle Obama."

            Although the image does not come up with a direct search of Michelle Obama the image still appears when searched as 'Michelle Obama ape.'

            Google safely separated themselves from the backlash, "The beliefs and preferences of those who work at Google, as well as the opinions of the general public, do not determine or impact our search results."

            Although Google issued this apology they still defend the freedom of the Internet and its contents.

            "Accordingly, we do not remove a page from our search results simply because its content is unpopular or because we receive complaints concerning it."
