    A protest in Minneapolis on Tuesday evening, calling for justice in April’s police-involved shooting death of Daunte Wright, was disrupted when a driver forced a vehicle through a crowd of marchers, according to a report. The incident happened shortly after 5 p.m. outside the Hennepin County Government Center in Minneapolis, where jury selection was taking place for the manslaughter trial of Kim Potter, a White former Brooklyn Center police officer who is charged in connection with the death of Wright, who was Black.

    Russia is believed to be developing a special Artificial Intelligence (AI) software to predict and then prevent riots and protests in the latest part of a Kremlin crackdown on dissent. The technology will use machine learning to carry out a 'multi-factor, comprehensive analysis of the likelihood of riots and unauthorised public events' taking place and then alerts security services to them. The country's Emergency Situations Ministry is planning to have the technology in place in 2022, according to the Kommersant news website. The software will also analyse news, social media, CCTV and public transport data to foresee upcoming riots, and has drawn comparisons to the Tom Cruise film Minority Report.

    A police report determined that a Florida school and its teachers did not commit a crime or child abuse after it emerged last month that they tied a mask to the face of a student with Down syndrome. "There is insufficient evidence to support a criminal violation" against the teacher and instructional assistant of 7-year-old Sofia Bezerra, reads a police report from the Indian Harbor Police Department, which Fox News obtained Sunday.

    PARIS (AP) — France is launching a new process for women to formally report abuse, circumventing police stations where many victims feel uncomfortable filing such complaints. Junior Interior Minister Marlene Schiappa said alternative locations can include a friend’s home or some other place where abused women feel safe. “There are women who tell us that they don’t dare to come to a police station because they are afraid of not being welcomed, because it’s hard to talk about things that are taboo (with) an unknown person in uniform in a foreign environment,” she said in an interview with The Associated Press. “That’s why we are lifting one after the other, the obstacles they are facing.” An annual survey led by national statistics institute INSEE found that only 10% of victims of sexual abuse in France file a formal complaint. And police this week reported a 10% increase in reports of domestic violence last year. It is estimated that more than 200,000 women each year are physically or sexually abused by their partner or ex-partner, according to INSEE. The latest government...

    Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham and others on the far-right have been accusing Democrats of exaggerating the violence that occurred when Donald Trump supporters attacked the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6.

    Police are investigating whether the driver of the SUV that crashed into a parade in Waukesha, Wis., on Sunday was fleeing another crime, The Washington Post reports. The crash killed five people and injured at least 40. The driver was identified by multiple news outlets on Monday as 39-year-old Darrell Brooks.

    By Ann Givens This story was reported by The Trace, a nonprofit newsroom covering gun violence in America. Sign up for its newsletters here. Six years ago, an internal report commissioned by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms issued a dire warning: the agency needed to open a long-standing, sole-source ballistics contract with a company based in Canada to competitors, or risk losing one of its most important tools for preventing and solving gun crimes. The report, written by an independent consulting company and provided to The Trace by a source who had access to it through work but asked to remain anonymous, said competition was likely to bring down prices, which would enable many police departments to access the National Integrated Ballistic Information Network, or NIBIN, for the first time. It might also spur innovation, since a sole-source vendor has less incentive to improve than a company that is competing to win business. But in 2019, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) renewed its $85-million contract with Ultra Electronics Forensic Technology for five years—a decision...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Facing opposition from more than 20 aldermen over her pick to lead the city’s police oversight agency, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Civilian Office of Police Accountability interim chief Andrea Kersten should apologize for a report recommending a three-day suspension for slain Police Officer Ella French. Lightfoot has nominated COPA interim chief administrator Andrea Kersten for the full-time job, despite a letter from 20 aldermen opposing that pick, arguing the agency’s report on the botched 2019 raid at the home of Anjanette Young should disqualify Kersten from leading the agency, because the report recommended French be suspended for three days for not wearing a body camera during the raid.

    UPDATE: Elmwood Park Middle School was locked down, a SWAT team and K-9 unit was brought in and backpacks were searched by police Thursday after four students reported hearing another say that he was carrying a gun. Each of the four was interviewed separately and "told the exact same story without wavering," Police Chief Michael Foligno said. "They couldn't identify the student visually because it apparently happened between classes," Foligno said. "That's when the hallways are full of kids. "All they could say was that the student had a black backpack and said he had a gun in it. They each were 100% confident that that's was what they heard." Police and school officials reviewed security video. But with so many students moving at once, "you can't identify a potential suspect." So they summoned a SWAT team and K9 unit to search the middle school section of the facility, which also houses the borough high school. Then they cleared each classroom individually and walked the students down to the auditorium and the gym with their packs. Police arranged the students...

    A man convicted in the traffic death of a Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy was given federal court permission this week to sue police for fabricating a report, but not the prosecutors who knew about it. U.S. District Judge Josephine L. Staton on Thursday dismissed from a civil rights lawsuit two prosecutors who have immunity, although they used the altered report to pursue murder charges against driver Cole Wilkins, who formerly lived in Long Beach but reportedly has moved to Arizona. Wilkins unknowingly dropped a stolen stove from the back of his truck in the early morning darkness of July 7, 2006.  An off-duty deputy on his way to work was killed after he swerved to avoid the boxed stove and ran into a cement truck on the 91 Freeway in Anaheim. Also dismissed from the suit was the county of Orange. Remaining are California Highway Patrol Sgt. Joseph Morrison and retired Orange County district attorney’s Investigator Wesley Vandiver, who allegedly knew reports were being changed, but said nothing. Prosecutors learned of the forgery from another CHP officer, but did...

The more likely outcome was a lawsuit, which played out with local governments (i.e. taxpayers) paying at least $125 million in 40 wrongful death suits, the Times reported.

"But The Times reviewed video and audio recordings, prosecutor statements and court documents, finding patterns of questionable police conduct that went beyond recent high-profile deaths of unarmed drivers.
