Black Woman Shot in Back By White Cop Drops Charges After Mediation Session

  Black Woman Shot in Back By White Cop Drops Charges After Mediation Session Julia Crews, 39, shot Ashley Fountain Hall on April 23, 2019, after Hall was accused of stealing from a local grocery store in Ladue, Missouri. Hall and another woman were accused of taking a grocery cart full of steaks and seafood without paying and hitting a grocery worker in the face. The store workers followed the women outside and kept them in the parking lot until police arrived. Crews arrived at the scene and said she intended to deploy her taser to restrain Hall but mistakenly pulled out her service firearm instead, and shot Hall in the back. Crews resigned after the shooting incident.

Jury selection to begin in trial over the death of Daunte Wright

Jury selection is set to begin Tuesday in the manslaughter trial of a former Minnesota police officer who fatally shot a Black man while yelling "Taser" during a traffic-stop-turned-arrest in a Minneapolis suburb earlier this year. Kim Potter, 49, is charged with first and second-degree manslaughter in the death of Daunte Wright, 20, on April 11 in Brooklyn Center.  Potter, a 26-year veteran of the Brooklyn Center Police Department, and the police chief resigned two days later. Potter was arrested three days after the shooting and charged with second-degree manslaughter. Prosecutors filed the first-degree charge in September. Activists demanded a murder charge. Opening statements for the trial, which will be livestreamed, are expected to begin Dec. 8.

Jurors at trial in Daunte Wright slaying go under microscope

  Jurors at trial in Daunte Wright slaying go under microscope MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — When attorneys sift through potential jurors for the trial of a suburban Minneapolis police officer who says she meant to use her Taser instead of her gun when she killed Daunte Wright, they’ll take a hard look at their attitudes toward policing, protests, and the Black Lives Matter and Blue Lives Matter movements. Jury selection starts Tuesday in former Brooklyn Center Officer Kim Potter’s manslaughter trial. The pool has already responded to questionnaires similar to those used this year in Derek Chauvin’s murder trial for the killing of George Floyd.

Donald Trump's records are on the line in federal appeals court

A federal appeals court will hear arguments Tuesday about whether former President Donald Trump can block access to his administration's documents from a House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection. Trump contested the release of hundreds of pages of documents the committee subpoenaed from the National Archives and Records Administration, under a claim of executive privilege to keep the communications confidential. Earlier this month, three D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals judges temporarily blocked release of the contested documents while the case is pending. The records include handwritten notes and logs of calls on Jan. 6 to Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence. The Trump case is urgent because the committee is eager to review the documents as it considers legislation to discourage upheaval surrounding the 2022 and 2024 elections.

Barbados says goodbye to Queen Elizabeth, transforms into a republic

Barbados stopped pledging allegiance to Queen Elizabeth II early Tuesday as it shed another vestige of its colonial past and became a republic for the first time in history. Several leaders and dignitaries, including Prince Charles, attended the ceremony in a popular square where the statue of a well-known British lord was removed last year amid a worldwide push to erase symbols of oppression. Fireworks peppered the sky at midnight as Barbados officially became a republic, with screens set up across the island so people could watch the event. It was also broadcast online, prompting a flurry of excited messages from Bajans living in the U.S., Canada and beyond. As part of the ceremony, Barbados' Prime Minister Mia Mottley named singer and entrepreneur Rihanna a national hero. "May you continue to shine like a diamond," Mottley said to Rihanna as a reference to her 2012 No. 1 hit, "Diamonds."

Brian Kelly's move to LSU may become final

In a stunning move, Louisiana State University (LSU) is expected to hire Notre Dame's Brian Kelly to be its next head football coach, according to multiple reports. An announcement is expected to come as early as Tuesday. The Athletic reported Kelly told Notre Dame players in a group text message that he will return to South Bend, Indiana, Tuesday morning to address them. The bombshell move, should it become official, will mark the second consecutive day in which a coach moved from one blueblood program to another following Lincoln Riley leaving Oklahoma for the University of Southern California (USC). Kelly's decision to leave for LSU would be even more shocking, given how well-established he has been at Notre Dame as the winningest coach in school history. Plus, 11-1 Notre Dame is still in contention for the College Football Playoff should one of the current contenders like Cincinnati, Michigan or Oklahoma State lose in their conference championship games.

It's GivingTuesday, the holiday of 'radical generosity'

How will you give back this holiday season? GivingTuesday, a day devoted to charitable causes, is celebrated annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. From donating to nonprofits to volunteering at local community centers, GivingTuesday's website calls the movement "radical generosity." GivingTuesday was started in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y, a New York City nonprofit organization dating back to 1874, as part of a partnership with the United Nations Foundation. Since then, the annual event's reach has grown significantly, with estimated movements in 80 countries and almost 300 community campaigns in the United States alone. Last year, people donated nearly $2.5 billion in the United States, according to a recent GivingTuesday report.
