Killer of Etan Patz Confesses

Since this cute little boy disappeared in 1979 the NYC Police have been looking for his killer. I remember how much the City was involved with this case.  CNN just released the following statement:

Pedro Hernandez, a former Manhattan store clerk who once lived in the same neighborhood as Etan Patz, was arrested in the boy’s 1979 death, New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says.

 Kelly says police have a signed confession from Hernandez.

 Patz’s disappearance received national attention and helped trigger a national movement that focuses on missing children.





CNN – 8PM ET – Anderson Cooper Interviews Activist Chen Guangcheng

“In his first in-depth TV interview since his dramatic escape, Chinese human rights activist Chen Guangcheng tells CNN about his departure from China and his continuing concern for family and friends he left behind.

Chen’s arrival in the United States last week brought an end to a diplomatic firestorm between Beijing and Washington that erupted after he escaped from house arrest in the Shandong province.

“Let’s use the term ‘illegal detention,'” Chen said. “It’s hard for me to describe what it was like during that time. But let’s just say that my suffering was beyond imagination.”

Watch the interview on “Anderson Cooper 360°” tonight at 8 ET.”

Gay Marriage Opposition at Record Low

Breaking from

Poll: Gay Marriage Opposition at Record Low

Opposition to gay marriage is sinking in the wake of President Barack Obama’s endorsement of same-sex unions, with a new Washington PostABC News poll showing a record low of 39 percent believe gay marriage should be illegal.

The poll found that 53 percent, also a new record high for the Post poll, believe gay marriage should be legal. Just six years ago only 36 percent thought same-sex unions should be legal.

The poll also found that 59 percent of African-Americans now support gay marriage, up from an average of 41 percent in previous polls.

Obama endorsed same-sex marriage two weeks ago.

“By speaking in very personal terms about his own journey, the president has helped to build a larger and stronger majority in support of full equality for committed gay and lesbian couples,” Fred Sainz, a spokesman for the Human Right Campaign, told the Post.

Of those surveyed, 71 percent said they had a friend, family member, or acquaintance who is gay.

In 2010 that number was 63 percent and in 1998 it was 59 percent. The poll, which surveyed 1,004 adults from May 17 to 20, also found that most Americans say Obama’s position on gay marriage will not play a big role in the November elections.
