FACE OF DEFENSE... Medal of Honor Monday: Navy Corpsman William Halyburton Jr.

Navy Corpsman William Halyburton Jr. May 10, 2021 | BY Katie Lange , DOD News Actions worthy of the Medal of Honor don't always come from a compilation of courageous deeds; they can happen in the shortest window of time. That was likely the case for Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class William Halyburton Jr., a corpsman who died on his first day in combat toward the end of World War II. Halyburton was born on Aug. 2, 1924, in Canton, North Carolina, to parents Mae and William Halyburton. He had two brothers, Bob and Joe. In 1940, the family moved to Miami, but Halyburton only stayed for a short while before moving back to North Carolina to live with his aunt and uncle in Wilmington,... Read more →


Why you should consider a career as a lawyer

Jurisprudence is the totality of all legal sciences that study the legal system as a whole, as well as the complex of knowledge about the state and administration. A lawyer is a qualified specialist who is engaged in practical activities in the field of law. He interprets and applies state laws in order to ensure the legitimacy of the activities of all individuals and legal entities, and therefore, fixes the offenses themselves and, with special judicial powers, determines the measure of responsibility and establishes the punishment for the perpetrator. This profession rightly seems to many to be extremely difficult, because in addition to a thorough knowledge of all branches of law, from a professional lawyer, special inner qualities are required: well-developed analytical thinking, logic, pedantry,...

A Message from Gloucester Township Police Chief David Harkins:

"The men and women of the Gloucester Township Police Department prepare to celebrate a very special time of the year for law enforcement. National Police Week is celebrated May 9-15 this year, with a special somber remembrance on National Peace Officer Memorial Day on May 15. As I reflect back on this time last year, we were in middle of an unprecedented pandemic, and law enforcement in general were part of the “good guys,” who were out working in public safety along with healthcare professionals and other first responders. No one could have predicted how fast the pendulum would swing against law enforcement, with the death of George Floyd and subsequent protests and riots that began at the end of May and continued into summer....

Rutgers‒Camden nursing graduate persevered through family tragedy in Ecuador

GUEST OPINION:

The Supreme Court and Facebook - by Aron Solomon

If you were longing to see the week that Charlie Kirk and Robert Reich fundamentally agreed on a critically important issue, this is indeed your week. This week Facebook made a decision as to whether to uphold their ban on former President Trump and they decided in the affirmative. For the mercifully unaware, both Mr. Kirk and Mr. Reich are correct - Facebook did essentially establish its own Supreme Court. This is called the Oversight Board and it functions, for Facebook and Instagram, very much like both the Supreme Court of the United States does as well as state Supreme Courts. This means that Facebook has given its Oversight Board - which Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg approved in November 2018, shortly after a meeting with... Read more →
