Yahoo! National News - Wed, 02/11/2015 - 07:43

Funeral Services Held For 28-Year-Old Akai Gurley Shot By NYPDBy Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York City rookie police officer was indicted by a grand jury on Tuesday for the fatal shooting of an unarmed man while patrolling the darkened stairwell of a housing project last November, local media reported. Peter Liang, the officer, was patrolling with his partner in the Brooklyn housing project around 11:15 p.m. on Nov. 20 when his gun discharged a single bullet, killing Akai Gurley, 28, who was in the stairwell a flight below with his girlfriend. A spokeswoman for Kenneth Thompson, the Brooklyn district attorney who oversaw the grand jury's secret consideration of Liang's case, declined to comment. Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has angered many members of his police force by expressing support for some of those protests, released a statement reacting to the reports that the grand jury had voted.

By Kara Van Pelt BECKLEY, W. Va.

Ronald Browning, 68, of Beckley, about 55 miles (89 km) south of the capital Charleston, died from blunt force trauma to his head and neck, police said. Camille Browne, 19, is being held and charged with murder and breaking and entering after she confessed to killing Browning, police said.

Jeb Bush talks immigration, education, releases emails as he eyes 2016 bid

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 02/11/2015 - 07:21

Republican Jeb Bush speaks at a fund-raising luncheon in Tallahassee, FloridaBy Bill Cotterell TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Reuters) - In a visit to Florida's state capital on Tuesday, Republican Jeb Bush focused on the politically explosive topics of immigration and education reform, while emails were released from his time as governor there in an effort to burnish his credentials as he eyes a 2016 presidential bid. Bush told a friendly audience of 300 longtime supporters at a $1,000-per-plate luncheon that his party should approach immigration as an opportunity to spur economic growth, a view at odds with hardliners in his party. "People, the best and brightest around the world, want to come here, so we should fix our immigration system," he said, also stressing his support for securing U.S. borders. The trip highlighted his strength in Florida - the largest U.S. swing state - seen as crucial to the Republican Party's hopes of regaining the White House in 2016.
