Creek Fire ignites fire management debate on 102 million trees killed by beetles, drought

  Creek Fire ignites fire management debate on 102 million trees killed by beetles, drought Bark beetles and drought together left 2,000 tons of dead trees per acre in the Creek Fire, but land managers debate whether logging is the answer.But the stage had long been set for the megablaze, one of a half-dozen transforming millions of acres of Golden State landscapes to ash. Droughts supercharged by climate change dried out vegetation, aiding its transition into fuel. And as observers ranging from foresters to Californians living in the wildland urban interface predicted, the state's zealous, century-long fight to suppress fires meant this flammable concoction grew to unstable levels.

The Portland Police Department revealed on Sunday that while combing the area outside a federal courthouse that has been the scene of repeated clashes between rioters and police , they discovered loaded rifle magazines and Molotov cocktails that appear to have been left by the rioters.

Fires were started on the wood paneling and protestors also threw objects at the building.

As police moved in on the protestors, a Molotov cocktail was thrown at one group of officers.

Police later attempted to clear protestors from a nearby park, firing pepper balls and using pepper spray.

What was the indictment in Breonna Taylor's case?

On Wednesday afternoon, the Jefferson County grand jury announced its indictment, which applies to the bullets Hankison fired into residences nearby Taylor's home during the raid that killed her.

Hodkinson fired 10 bullets into Taylor's home, some of which pierced through the walls into adjacent apartments. He was the only officer fired from the Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) in June, three months after the former EMT was killed.

Hodkinson's bond was set at $15,000, which was posted soon afterwards. There were no charges announced in relation to Taylor's death.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and the LMPD had declared a state of emergency in the city ahead of the potential unrest that could occur after the announcement of the indictment.

All vacation days and time-off requests for LMPD personnel were suspended as part of the declaration, the Louisville-based television station WDRB reported after obtaining the memorandum sent to LMPD staff.

Two officers from the LMPD have reportedly been shot and mass arrests occurred following a mostly peaceful protest near the city's main courthouse.

Following the announcement of the indictment, protests ensued in cities across the country.

Portland has been an epicenter of protests against police brutality since the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody in May. The demonstrations in Oregon's largest city have now lasted for more than 100 consecutive days.

Portland's NAACP president Reverend E.D. Mondainé recently told KATU, a local TV station, that the protests could continue for years unless "extraordinarily unapologetic and deliberate actions" are taken to begin to "root out systemic racism."
