What Americans Should Know About Police Shootings of Minors
Horror at the deaths of minors fuels a movement for police abolition, but the wrong policy responses could endanger more children.All of these cases are tragedies. All raise the question of what, if anything, adults should have done to prevent them. But most news coverage of these killings lacks vital context to inform good answers.

"She gave me many other things and taught me many lessons. But if you don't have that base, to feel valued and safe, then it's hard for any of the other messages or lessons to land."
The actress continued: "I hope that I've been able to be that (for my own children), that I'm that warm, safe place. Because - and it's maybe a funny thing to say - but considering what my different jobs are, or what people think they know of you, or what you feel you have to be in the world, in truth none of those things are what you really are.

Angelina stars as a firefighter Hannah Faber in her new film 'Those Who Wish Me Dead' and suggests there is "a lot to discover" in terms of females playing flawed heroes on screen.
She explained: "There’s a lot to discover, there’s a lot that’s yet to be represented, and there’s a space being created right now that is not yet there.
"There’s a lot of trauma behind the strong women in a lot of these roles, and it will be nice to get to a place where we’re also in our maternity, in our femininity, strong and intelligent and not fighting to survive."
