    This week, students and outsiders at Northwestern University in Chicago staged an anti-police protest that left the campus covered in graffiti. The rhetoric included messages like "more dead pigs" and worse. To his credit, Northwestern President Morton Schapiro strongly denounced the protests, and called out the left for thinking they're more important than others on campus.

    A federal district court ruled that the Dakota Access Pipeline, the oil route from North Dakota to Illinois that is a crucial component to the Trump administration's plans for energy, must be shut down pending an environmental review, and be emptied of oil by Aug. 5.
    In a 24-page order, U.S. District Judge James Boasberg in Washington, D.C., wrote that he was “mindful of the disruption” that shutting down the pipeline would cause, but that it must be done within 30 days. Pipeline owner Energy Transfer plans to ask a court to halt the order and will seek an expedited appeal, spokeswoman Vicki Granado said.
