Barraged by expressions of outrage, Adidas announced Monday evening that it's pulling a shoe design that critics say evokes slavery. The design, by eccentric Beverly Hills designer Jeremy Scott, features a plastic set of shackles. Initially it was met with disbelief, then fury, especially in online arenas. On Twitter, the shoes were labeled "Adidas slave shackle kicks. " Talk of a boycott arose. Early Monday, Adidas defended the shoes as the handiwork of a whimsical designer.

Re "AOL Case Points to a Trend: Breaking Up Is Hard to Do," Aug. 25 Over the years, I have heard many stories from family and friends regarding difficulties switching from AOL to another Internet provider. Topping them all was my neighbor's account of the problems she encountered when she tried to close her deceased brother's account. They demanded a copy of the death certificate!

Immigrants fighting deportation in San Francisco will no longer be shackled during most court hearings, according to a settlement reached with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The settlement, which received preliminary approval from a federal judge Thursday, is limited to San Francisco Immigration Court but could affect the way immigrants are treated in other jurisdictions. People held at detention centers in the San Francisco area are transported to court shackled at the wrists, waist and ankles, attorneys for four immigrants wrote in a federal lawsuit filed in 2011.

Convoys of shackled and handcuffed women inmates, escorted by armed guards, were evacuated Thursday from Renz Correctional Center before rising floodwaters could cover the only road into the prison. The 31 prisoners, considered maximum-security risks, were taken to other state prisons. Other prisoners at the facility had been moved earlier.

Two men charged in the murder of two youths at an abandoned bunker in the Mojave Desert earlier this month pleaded not guilty Tuesday in San Bernardino County Superior Court. Collin Lee McGlaughlin, 19, of West Covina and David Brian Smith, 18, of Covina, appeared in dark green jumpsuits, wearing shackles on their arms and legs. The front row of the packed courtroom was filled by the families of the victims, 16-year-old Bodhisattva Sherzer-Potter of Silver Lakes and 18-year-old Christopher Cody Thompson of Apple Valley.

The implementation of Proposition 102 will effectively break the link of transmission of AIDS in California and will save taxpayers billions of dollars in long-term health care costs. The dual policy of confidential reporting and contact tracing, both currently routine procedures for curable communicable diseases in the state, will encourage early diagnosis and treatment for opportunistic infections that otherwise have been lacking. Leave it to The Times to kowtow to San Francisco elites and militant homosexuals.

Twenty-year-old Christopher Nagano is charged with arson. He may not be guilty. Yet he was held in jail unable to raise the half-million dollars in bail money. He was forced to appear in court in prison pajamas and shackles. In Detroit, two cops are charged with murder in the beating death of a man. There is no doubt they committed the bloody deed. But they stand in court in their own clothes and are released on personal bond of only $100,000. Does this make it seem that cops are a privileged class?

In response to Immigration and Naturalization Service Commissioner Alan C. Nelson's letter, March 28: If indeed extended voluntary departure were to be offered to refugees from Central America, and if indeed 22 million of them took advantage of this and came to our country, there would be no one left to fight in that part of the world. If we could then find no way to "uproot" those 22 million and send them back, not to worry--at least that many native-born Americans, and probably more, would surely emigrate to El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, and Belize.

Vincent Pelliccia cast off the last legal shackles of a long-ago crime Wednesday, signing a pardon and toasting his freedom with champagne while recounting how he escaped from a Virginia chain gang 41 years ago. Pelliccia, who had earlier refused to discuss the escape, said he used a hacksaw smuggled in by a friend to cut off his shackles, then fled all day and night through the swamps in clothes he stole from a clothesline.

Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich on Friday signed into law hastily approved measures to ban unauthorized protests, a move aimed at wiping out the remnants of a civic uprising against his rejection of closer ties with the European Union in favor of alignment with Russia. The bills endorsed by what opponents contend was an inconclusive show of hands by lawmakers at the Verkhovna Rada assembly on Thursday were swiftly criticized as a violation of Ukrainians' human rights by free-speech advocates and senior Western diplomats.

Like almost everyone besides the Brown and Goldman families, I spend no time thinking about O.J. Simpson and his starring role in one of the most painful chapters in Los Angeles criminal history. His acquittal at the end of a traumatic 1995 murder trial featuring a defense “dream team” that ran roughshod over subpar prosecutors, was followed in 1997 by a civil trial in which he was found liable for the deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend, Ronald Goldman.

Adidas and eccentric Beverly Hills designer Jeremy Scott are under fire for a new shoe design that critics say calls up painful images of slavery. The shoes come with a set of plastic shackles, and a tag line on Adidas' Facebook page strikes a playful tone : "Got a sneaker game so hot you lock your kicks to your ankles?" But others aren't laughing and have taken to social media to lament the design, due out in August. "Our ancestors fought blood, sweat and tears just so fools can turn pain into an accessory?"

It required some reading between the lines, but Sarah Palin's Tuesday night appearance on Fox News, where she is a highly paid contributor, may not have come as good news to her supporters, who have been hoping for months that she will end their suspense and jump into the Republican presidential race. In a conversation that touched on multiple political topics, including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's apparent decision not to run for president, relations with Israel, the GOP presidential race as a reality show, Palin seemed to signal that she is more comfortable outside the confines of a political campaign - at least a Republican campaign.

Supreme Court decisions are supposed to settle confusion. But the justices left a bigger mess than they found when they decided last month that some prison sentences violated a defendant's constitutional right to a jury trial. The ruling puts in doubt the legality of the sentences in thousands of state and federal cases. Certainly, the high court justices need to fix the muddle they created.

Huntington Beach Ocean View needed just one win to advance to the Little League World Series. And though his Ocean View team ultimately fell, 4-1, to Waipio Little League of Hawaii in the Western Regional championship game Sunday at Al Houghton Stadium before an estimated crowd of 13,285, Manager Tod Minato said he was pleased with his team's poise. Minato also gave credit where it was due: Noah Shackles, the 13-year-old Waipio right-hander, pitched a complete game while striking out nine.
