    Mistrial in S. Carolina police shooting mystifies observers

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The video was unambiguous: A white police officer fatally shot an unarmed black man in the back as the man ran away.

    Eric Garner’s widow to stay in public housing despite $2M settlement

    Eric Garner’s widow is staying in her housing-project apartment despite a $2.4 million-plus settlement for her husband’s death — because the cash is not counted as disqualifying income, The Post has learned.

    A crying shame ...

    No charges against LAPD officers who shot and killed Ezell Ford, D.A. says

    Los Angeles County prosecutors said Tuesday they will not bring criminal charges against two Los Angeles police officers who shot and killed Ezell Ford during a clash near his South L.A. home in 2014, a shooting that thrust the LAPD into a national debate about how police interact with African Americans ...

    Black Lives Matter is the call to conscience: Column
    My job is to not get in the way or take over according to the way I think things should be done, but be part of the movement


    ...BLM has asserted itself as a movement that will not go quietly in the night, but instead is insistent that the status quo of law enforcement and government systems that were designed for many of the tragic outcomes we see unfold before us is not acceptable.

    The Black Lives Matter movement is a call to conscience to the greater black community, and the entire United States; it is a call to be our highest and best selves and, once again, as young people lead the way ...

    $1.5M Settlement Reached in LAPD Killing of Black Man

    The City of Los Angeles agreed Wednesday to pay $1.5 million to the family of a mentally ill black man who was shot and killed in 2014 by Los Angeles police during a struggle over an officer's gun.

    The settlement in a civil rights lawsuit brought by the family of Ezell Ford, 25, came two weeks after prosecutors said the two Los Angeles Police Department officers acted lawfully and in self-defense when they shot and killed Ford in August 2014 ...

    ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota judge on Wednesday declined to dismiss charges against a police officer who shot and killed a black man during a July traffic stop, saying it's fair and reasonable for the case to go to trial.

    Ramsey County District Court Judge William Leary III said St. Anthony Police Officer Jeronimo Yanez will enter a plea at a Feb. 27 hearing; his attorneys have indicated he will plead not guilty to manslaughter and other counts in the shooting death of Philando Castile ...
