  • Chicago teen's death shines light on police code of silence

    Updated: 7 hr ago

    CHICAGO (AP) — For more than a year after an officer shot and killed a black teen named Laquan McDonald, the Chicago Police Department had video footage that raised serious doubts about whether other officers at the scene tried in their reports to cover up what prosecutors now contend was murder. Not until 15 months later was one of those officers and a detective who concluded the shooting was justified put on desk duty. At least eight other officers failed to recount the same scene that unfolded on the video. All of them remain on the street, according to the department. The lack of swift action illustrates the difficulty of confronting the "code of silence" that has long been associated with police in Chicago and elsewher

  • Lawmakers up funding ante for anti-recruitment efforts

    Updated: 7 hr ago

    ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — House Democrats announced Monday they'll push for another $2 million to dedicate to combatting terrorism in Minnesota and the tide of youth heading overseas. The large Somali community in Minneapolis and other enclaves in the state have been and continue to be prime targets for terrorism recruitment — and the federal government's anti-terrorism efforts. More than 22 men have left the state since 2007 to join al-Shabab in Somalia, and roughly a dozen people have left in recent years to join militants in Syria. Minnesota lawmakers earmarked $250,000 last year to fund anti-recruitment efforts, but Minneapolis Rep. Phyllis Kahn and other Democrats said more is needed.

Only one Coca-Cola Mini. Witness an epic chase between Marvel’s biggest and smallest Super Heroes: the Incredible Hulk and Astonishing Ant-Man. Despite their differences in size, Hulk and Ant-Man both know what it’s like to get thirsty.
