University Police ‘optimistic’ evidence will lead to arrest

ALFRED — The University Police Department at Alfred State “is optimistic that scientific analysis may yield a conclusion” to arson fires that plagued a residence hall in November, the college said in a statement posted on its website Wednesday.

In its latest update on the arson probe and the search for suspects, Alfred State officials revealed that the high-tech investigation is utilizing federal criminal profiling, DNA, video surveillance and a “silent witness” system to generate leads.

Local law enforcement agencies as well as county and state fire investigators are probing three fires that were intentionally set over a seven-day period in November. The fires were reported on Nov. 8, Nov. 14 and Nov. 15 in Mackenzie North residence hall. Each of the fires were set in trash cans, college officials said, adding that paper and plastic

Pittsburgh-shot ‘Mindhunter’ renewed for second season on Netflix – Tribune

The Pittsburgh-shot Netflix series “Mindhunter,” about the early days of criminal profiling in the FBI’s serial killer unit, has been renewed for a second season.

Netflix announced the new season Thursday on social media, with the tagline: “We need to talk to more subjects.”

The show is based on John Douglas and Mark Olshaker’s nonfiction book “Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit,” and stars Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany as FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Trench, who were pioneers in behavioral profiling during the 1970s.

The first season ended with an emotional cliffhanger for Groff’s character, as both he and his partner began

Michelle Malkin: The perils of ‘#MeToo’ movement – Tribune

Updated 11 hours ago

The social-media meme of the moment is “#MeToo,” tweeted nearly a half-million times and posted on Facebook 12 million times in a 24-hour period. Spearheaded by actress Alyssa Milano in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, women have flooded social media with their own long-buried accounts of sexual harassment. Count me out. The #MeToo movement is collectivist virtue signaling of a very perilous sort.

Actress Emily Ratajkowski declared at a Marie Claire magazine women’s conference, “The most important response to #metoo is ‘I believe you.’” No. I do not believe every woman now standing up to “share her story” or “tell her truth.” Assertions are not truths until they are established as facts and corroborated with evidence. Timing, context, motives and manner all matter. Because I reserve the right to vet such claims instead of championing them all knee-jerk

“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” (7 p.m., CW, TV-14) returns for a third season. Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) has every reason to be even more unhinged. Season two ended with her wedding ruined when she was left at the altar by her band-camp boyfriend and obsessive crush, Josh (Vincent Rodriguez III). The fiasco also allowed her a chance to confront her father and all the abandonment issues he embodied.

While “normal” comedies have characters returning from such disastrous cliffhangers eager to move on as if nothing ever happened, “Crazy” is committed to Rachel’s vow to absolutely destroy Josh, a goal worthy of her plus-sized compulsions.

And, yes, there will be musical numbers.

“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” is a perfect example of a growing trend: a show that receives near-universal critical praise while at the same time attracting a microscopic network audience.

A hybrid comedy/musical, “Crazy” debuted to viewership numbers that barely cracked a million, and the second season ended with

There’s a lot of past in our future. Despite the onslaught of head-turning current events, news and documentary series are still driven by grim anniversaries. This month marks the 40th anniversary of the capture of the Son of Sam killer and the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death. Commemorative specials abound.

The true-crime network ID presents “Son of Sam: The Hunt for a Killer” (8 p.m., TV-14). Last week, the Smithsonian Channel aired a “Lost Tapes” episode on the same story. While “Lost” emphasized the Son of Sam phenomenon as a news event, “Hunt” puts the emphasis on detective work, highlighting the around-the-clock investigation into the serial killer who left six dead and seven wounded over the course of 1976 and 1977. It also shows how far criminal profiling and forensics have come over the past four decades.

High school athletic highlight: During the summer going into my sophomore year, I developed mononucleosis. I was on bed rest the second half of the summer. I was unable to cheer that football season. (But) I made it my duty to show up to practice and helped the people on the team.

That winter I was captain of varsity. I was honored that my coaches believed in me and my abilities.

I was captain winter of my junior year and then again both fall and winter of my senior year.

This year our competition team won its fifth straight Winter CAC competition. I look back on the mono and can honestly say it contributed to the cheerleader I am today.”

The biggest influence on your life: My mom. Even before kindergarten, I could read and write. She
