Video shows Los Angeles police shooting homeless man dead
(Reuters) - A video posted online shows Los Angeles police scuffling with and shooting a homeless man during a confrontation, The Los Angeles Times reported on its web site. The video, posted on Facebook, shows several uniformed Los Angeles Police Department officers scuffling with a man in a downtown area where homeless people pitch tents at night known as skid row. A series of civilian deaths at the hands of police in the past year has become a touchstone for trouble race relations in the United States, most notably in Ferguson, Missouri, when an unarmed teen-ager was shot and killed by a police officer, triggering weeks of protests and some rioting. The homeless man in the video was declared dead at a hospital shortly after the shooting, the Times reported, citing police spokesman Sgt. Barry Montgomery.
Still more snow and ice snarling airline traffic for Northeast
Although less intense than the harshest winter storms of the past month, snow fell from the nation's capital to New England, with southern sections of Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts hardest hit, according to the National Weather Service. A winter storm warning was posted for those areas. Three to six inches of snow was expected to accumulate around Cape Cod and along the south coast of Massachusetts, with up to 8 inches in some spots, before tapering off or changing to freezing rain early on Monday, said meteorologist Frank Nocera of the Boston-area Weather Service office.
Americans say keep politics out of the Fed
Just 24 percent of those polled said Congress should be allowed to have detailed oversight of the Fed, the poll shows. The poll of 1,388 Americans was conducted from Feb 20-24 to measure whether people supported proposed legislation that would expose the Fed to a full government audit, a move being led by Rand Paul, a likely 2016 presidential candidate. Supporters of the campaign say the Fed needs more transparency and accountability. Opponents say the Fed is already audited, and that exposure of internal policy discussions could lead to political influence over decisions on interest rates and damage market confidence.
Israel's Netanyahu brings Iran nuclear fight to Washington
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ramps up his mission to foil an emerging White House-backed nuclear deal with Iran with a speech on Monday to the powerful pro-Israel AIPAC lobby. Netanyahu has infuriated the White House and Democratic lawmakers by accepting an invitation by President Barack Obama's Republican foes to speak on Capitol Hill Tuesday. Also addressing the 16,000 AIPAC delegates are Washington's United Nations envoy Samantha Power and National Security Advisor Susan Rice, who last week slammed Netanyahu's move to speak before a joint session of the US Congress without the blessing of the administration.
