    Bodycam video shows Andrew Brown Jr. did not drive into the deputies who shot him dead, according to the attorneys for the black man's family, after a judge allowed them to watch more footage of his killing at the hands of law enforcement.  Chance Lynch, a lawyer who viewed the footage in private with Brown's family Tuesday, said it shows Brown was sitting in his stationary car with his hands on the wheel when officers first opened fire on him.  He said the 42-year-old black man actually did 'the opposite' of driving at the officers, turning his car to go 'the opposite direction'  as he described his death as a 'massacre by a firing squad.' 'What we saw was a massacre by a firing squad. We want justice. We want arrest, conviction, and a long prison sentence,' said Lynch in a press conference after the viewing.    Brown, a 42-year-old black man, was shot multiple times and killed on the morning of April 21 by Pasquotank County sheriff's deputies.  The father-of-10 was inside his car outside his house in Elizabeth City, North...

    The Atlanta police officer who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks in June attempted on Thursday to be reinstated by the force, despite facing murder charges for the killing. Garrett Rolfe, a six-year veteran of the force, was fired on June 13, the day after Brooks' death. Both men were 27. Rolfe and his colleague, Officer Devin Brosnan, were called to a Wendy's by customers who said a man was asleep at the wheel, blocking the drive-through. Brooks spoke to the officers for over half an hour and was cooperative, but failed a sobriety test. When the officers attempted to arrest him, Brooks snatched a Taser and ran away, turning to face the pursuing officers and fire in their direction. Rolfe then shot him dead.

    OAKLAND — After five days of deliberations, an Alameda County jury announced it was unable to come to a decision on a murder charge against a Contra Costa man who was found with the dead body of his friend in his car, but argued during trial he killed the man in self-defense. Jurors, however, did reach verdicts on other serious felony charges; they convicted 32-year-old Charles Goetting of attempting to murder BART police officers, as well as assault with a deadly weapon on peace officers. Despite avoiding a murder conviction, Goetting still faces a maximum sentence of 35 years and eight months to life. The Alameda County District Attorney’s office declined to comment on the case, and it is unknown whether they will move to re-try Goetting. At the present, he is still facing an unresolved count of murder. During trial, deputy district attorney Luis Marin argued that evidence showed Goetting had executed his friend, 40-year-old Colin Anderson, with a “kill shot,” and that when two BART officers stumbled upon Goetting at the Hayward station on Christmas Day 2015, he...

    (CNN)The killing of two FBI agents last week at a lake-bordered community in South Florida marked the first time since November 2008 that an FBI agent was fatally shot in the line of duty.During that same interval, 630 police officers from state, local, tribal and other federal agencies died from line-of-duty gunshot wounds, according to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial FundWhy do most shooting deaths of law enforcement officers in the US occur outside of the FBI, which calls itself "one of the world's premier security and crime-fighting forces"?Some of the answers are expected: Nearly 90% of the nation's law enforcement officers serve on local and state police forces. They make more arrests. They are much more likely to encounter potentially violent suspects on a daily basis -- whether it be for a traffic stop, domestic violence call or another emergency.But there are other factors that might explain why fewer agents die by gunfire, say law enforcement experts and former agents.

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities in New Mexico have announced that the two men who were shot by police in separate incidents within four days of each other last month were each holding a gun when they died.

    A California police officer involved in two fatal shootings in the past two years, including in the death of rapper Willie McCoy last year, has now been fired. Vallejo Police Officer Ryan McMahon was issued a notice of termination by Chief Shawny Williams on Wednesday, following an internal investigation into the shooting of McCoy. McMahon was one of six officers who fired 55 rounds in less than five seconds at the 20-year-old aspiring musician as he slept in his car in a Taco Bell drive-thru in February, 2019. Vallejo PD had reportedly been seeking McMahon's termination because other officers were in the way when he opened fire. The department’s internal investigation ultimately concluded ‘among other things, that McMahon violated department policies by engaging in unsafe conduct and neglect for basic firearm safety during the incident.’ McMahon was also involved in another fatal shooting a year earlier in February, 2018, when he shot and killed father-of-two Ronell Foster, who was unarmed and on a bike, during a scuffle in an alleyway. The city recently settled a civil lawsuit with Foster’s family for...
    Protests in Louisville were less violent Thursday night, calming down significantly from the previous night, during which two Louisville Metropolitan Police Department officers were shot, the Courier Journal reported. Thursday was the second night since the grand jury decision not to charge any officers for killing Breonna Taylor during a raid on her home in March. One former officer, Brett Hankison, was charged with three counts of wanton endangerment, related to his allegedly shooting recklessly into surrounding apartments — not to the fact that Taylor was shot and killed. The Courier Journal reported that 24 people were arrested overnight Thursday, down from 127 the night before. Some of the arrests were for unlawful assembly and failure to disperse, and others, including a state representative, Attica Scott, were charged with felony rioting. Local reports say protesters numbered in the hundreds, mostly marching through the city and chanting. Some protesters reportedly confronted armed militia members who said they had come to the city to protect property, but those confrontations did not escalate into violence.

    By DYLAN LOVAN, Associated Press LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Six months after Breonna Taylor was fatally shot by police in her Kentucky apartment, a grand jury delivered a long-awaited answer about whether the officers would be punished. The jury on Wednesday did charge one of the officers, Brett Hankison, with three counts of wanton endangerment for firing shots that went into another home with people inside. But jurors didn't indict any of the officers on charges directly related to Taylor's death. The jury relied on evidence presented to it by Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron. Cameron said the other two officers were justified in firing their weapons because Taylor's boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, had fired one shot at them. Along with the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota, Taylor’s case became a major touchstone for the nationwide protests that have gripped the nation since May, drawing attention to entrenched racism and demanding police reform.

    Riot police run toward protesters after using smoke and stun grenades to clear Jefferson Square Park in Louisville, Kentucky on Wednesday. Daniel Shular Protests erupted in Louisville, Kentucky on Wednesday after a grand jury declined to charge two of the three police officers involved in Breonna Taylor's death.

    A 13-year-old autistic boy who was shot by police in Salt Lake City a little over a week ago is 'lucky to be alive' and will likely experience lifelong injuries, the family's lawyer said Friday. Linden, whom the family wants referred to only by his first name, remains hospitalized with bullets still in his body and is suffering from 'pierced organs' and 'shattered bones,' attorney Zach Weyher wrote in an email. The shooting made national headlines during a time when advocates are calling for police reform targeting excessive force by officers. 'Emergency assistance was requested to deescalate a situation involving a neurologically diverse child,' Weyher wrote. 'That request ended with an unarmed 13-year-old boy shot multiple times and lying on that ground as officers met him handcuffs rather than helping hands.' Salt Lake Mayor Erin Mendenhall said in a statement late Sunday that the shooting was a tragedy and called for a swift and transparent investigation.  Scroll down for video  Linden, whom the family wants referred to only by his first name, remains hospitalized with bullets still in his...
    KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — Most of the people arrested in demonstrations against police brutality since the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha were not city residents, according to police. Of the 175 people arrested during protests in Kenosha since Blake was shot in the back Aug. 23, leaving the 29-year-old Black man paralyzed, 102 have addresses outside of Kenosha, including 44 different cities, police said in a statement Sunday night. Protesters have marched in Kenosha every night since Blake’s shooting, with some protests devolving into violence that has damaged buildings and vehicles. Authorities say a teenager from northern Illinois shot and killed two protesters in Kenosha on Tuesday night. Many of the arrests were for curfew violations, and also included possible charges for burglary, possession of illegal drugs and carrying concealed weapons without a permit, officials said. More than 20 firearms have been seized. Blake was shot after three Kenosha officers responded to a domestic dispute call. In cellphone video recorded by a bystander, Blake walks from the sidewalk around the front of an SUV to his driver-side door as...

    By ALANNA DURKIN RICHER and CLAUDIA LAUER In the span of 48 hours, two Black men in U.S. cities hundreds of miles apart were shot by police in episodes that set off a national conversation about the need for officers to open fire on people walking away from them. The Jacob Blake shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and the killing of Trayford Pellerin in Lafayette, Louisiana, two days earlier have thrust into the spotlight a thorny and long-running legal issue that has on several occasions gone all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. And the Blake shooting has raised a host of other questions, including why the officer felt the need to shoot him seven times in the back at close range, and the prudence of police opening fire with children nearby. Wisconsin authorities are investigating those questions as they weigh charges against the officer in a case that has reignited national protests over racial injustice. The shootings come less than three months after almost daily clashes between police and protesters in response to the death of George Floyd after...
    Eight Indiana elementary school teachers who were shot ‘execution style’ with airsoft guns during an active shooter drill last year are suing the sheriff’s department who conducted the training for physical and emotional trauma. The educators, from Meadowlawn Elementary School, had undertaken ALICE training from the White County Sheriff’s Office in January 2019 when they say they were left 'bruised, bloodied and traumatized' by the supervising officers. ALICE training - which stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate - teaches people to respond to a school shooter and take on a proactive role, learning counter actions, instead of the traditional duck-and-cover.   The lawsuit, filed last week in Indiana’s northern federal court by Nicole Baltes, Jeanne Franks, Abby Hare, Breanne Paulik, Talaina Pinkerton, Darcy Slade, Danielle Snyder, and Carrie Zook, claims the officers subjected them to ‘verbal threats, expletives and screaming’. The plaintiffs also say they were struck numerous times with plastic pellets fired from airsoft guns, often from 'point-blank range'. ‘The teachers displayed obvious signs of anguish and physical pain, but were humiliated to find the law enforcement officers joking...
