Video shows fatal shooting of homeless man by police in Los Angeles
Police in Los Angeles fatally shot a homeless man in the city's so-called Skid Row district after trying to subdue him with a Taser gun during a struggle that was caught on video, the police department said on Monday. The man was a suspect in a robbery on Sunday and the officers were trying to take him into custody when he began fighting them, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement. A video recorded by an onlooker and posted online appears to show a group of police officers scuffling with a man in an area of downtown Los Angeles where homeless people pitch tents at night. A series of civilian deaths at the hands of police in recent months has become a touchstone for troubled race relations in the United States, most notably in Ferguson, Missouri, when an 18-year-old unarmed black man was shot and killed by a white police officer, triggering weeks of protests and some rioting.
Accused Boston bomber's lawyers seek to discuss brother early in trial
By Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - Lawyers for the Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and federal prosecutors sparred on Monday over how much evidence related to his motive and his brother's role in the attack can be presented in the opening weeks of his trial. Tsarnaev, 21, faces the possibility of a death sentence if convicted of killing three people and injuring 264 in the April 15, 2013, attack, and fatally shooting a police officer three days later. Federal death penalty cases play out in two stages, with a jury first determining whether the defendant is guilty and then considering his sentence. Prosecutors are seeking to stop defense attorneys from arguing during the first stage of the trial that Tsarnaev was not the mastermind of the attack but that his older brother, Tamerlan, was its architect.
Florida group to sue FBI in death of friend of Boston bombing suspect
By Barbara Liston ORLANDO, Fla. (Reuters) - A Florida Islamic group announced on Monday it has filed a formal notice with the FBI that it plans to sue the agency over the death of Ibragim Todashev, a friend of one of the Boston Marathon bomb suspects. Todashev, 27, a Chechen immigrant, was shot dead in an Orlando apartment in May 2013 during FBI questioning over his links with the Boston bombing suspects. The notice was filed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations Florida (CAIR-Florida) on behalf of Todashev's parents. "We are seeking answers and justice for someone who was shot seven times by an FBI agent in his own home after hours of interrogation," said Thania Diaz Clevenger, civil rights director for CAIR Florida.
