Attorneys offer surprising defense for men charged in Ahmaud Arbery killing

  Attorneys offer surprising defense for men charged in Ahmaud Arbery killing For the first time on network TV, attorneys on both sides of the case speak with "48 Hours" about the viral video of the fatal shooting — what they say it shows and what it doesn't.The shooting death of Arbery, 25, is a story about a mother's relentless pursuit for the truth of what happened to her son. It's also a case that has raised questions about race and racism, and whether local authorities tried to quash the initial investigation.

A North Carolina police officer was beaten during a Facebook Live video while some onlookers laughed and cheered on the attacker.

"Let 'em whup his a--! Let 'em whup his a--!” one man is heard saying in a nearly 11-minute video of the attack.

"Don't you let that man take you to f---in' jail!" was also heard being yelled.

Some in the crowd urged bystanders to help the officer.

The incident unfolded Saturday when 27-year-old Michael Sale with the Rowland Police Department was trying to make an arrest. He was the only officer on duty at the time, and it took other police officials additional time to provide backup.

He was airlifted to a local hospital suffering a suspected broken bone around his eye.

"Today's society, that's just how they think and operate. This is something that we, as law enforcement, been telling the public for years. It's not shocking to us because we been doing this for years," Rowland Police Chief Hubert B. Graham said.

Jamel Alphonso Rogers was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intention to kill while inflicting serious injuries, kidnapping, and two counts of resisting a public officer.

White woman in Central Park called 911 a second time on Black birdwatcher, prosecutors say

  White woman in Central Park called 911 a second time on Black birdwatcher, prosecutors say Amy Cooper was arraigned Wednesday and faces a misdemeanor charge of falsely reporting an incident. Prosecutors say she called 911 twice.Cooper was arraigned Wednesday and is facing a misdemeanor charge of falsely reporting an incident to police after she called 911 in May and falsely said Christian Cooper, the birdwatcher who asked her to leash her dog in an area that requires that dogs be on leashes, was threatening and tried to attack her.

He appeared before a judge on Monday, and his bond was set to $500,000.

"I don’t want you to hear about the assault on the Rowland Police Officer that occurred early this morning, I want you see it. This is the harsh reality that law enforcement in America is facing right now where some think it’s okay to Defund the Police, Assault the Police and actually laugh and video the event while it’s occurring while at the same time encouraging the suspect to continue to fight the officer even after the officer has lost his weapon and is obviously disabled,” Sheriff Burnis Wilkins said of the attack.

"A community won’t feel safe with their own law enforcement officers being attacked such as this," Wilkins said. "In saying this, we will not stand by and allow the criminal element regardless of your race, creed, nationality and so on to wreak havoc in our county. We try so hard to bring our county’s reputation out of the gutter and a few people such as seen here can turn it upside down. Law Enforcement is here to protect and serve. We aren’t the enemy. But we will be seeking out the enemy in the days ahead."

  She went out for a walk. Then Drogo the police dog charged. Growing up, few Black families in Ayanna Brooks’s neighborhood had dogs. A vicious attack reminded her why.Late one night in December 2018, Ayanna Brooks and her Siberian husky, Neptune, took a stroll with her boyfriend after his bartending shift. On a patch of grass near a CVS, they let Neptune roam off-leash. Then the sound of sirens filled the air. Police were chasing several men who had bolted from a stolen car.
