Seven officers suspended from San Francisco force over racist texts

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 04/04/2015 - 05:13
(Reuters) - Seven San Francisco police officers linked to a scandal over racist and homophobic text messages were suspended with the recommendation they be fired, Chief Greg Suhr said on Friday. “There is also no place in the SFPD for any officer capable of the thinking expressed in these hateful text messages," Suhr said in a statement. "The officers responsible for the reprehensible texts should be separated from the SFPD as soon as practical.

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 04/04/2015 - 04:58

In this March 23, 2015 photo, Dylan Miller, a senior at Juniata College, poses in front of his shelter in the woods near campus in Huntingdon, Pa. For his senior research project on simple living, Miller decided to emulate Thoreau instead of just reading his work. So, deep in the woods about a half-hour's walk from campus, he built a hut out of fallen trees, leaves and a tarp - unheated, no plumbing - and has been living there since the beginning of the school year, studying by lantern and chasing away the occasional bear. (AP Photo/Michael Rubinkam)HUNTINGDON, Pa. (AP) — You'd think Dylan Miller would have looked forward to spring, considering he spent his senior year of college living off-campus — WAY off campus — in a sturdy but rudimentary shelter he built in the woods.

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 04/04/2015 - 04:55

In this photo taken Tuesday, March 31, 2015, Rubin Sanchez sends flames upward as he cooks lunch for a customer at the Skillet Diner in Seattle.Seattle’s new minimum wage law went into effect Wednesday, April 1, 2015, that will eventually raise the city's minimum wage to $15 an hour. Starting Wednesday, large businesses and national chains must raise their minimum pay to at least $11 an hour. Smaller businesses must pay at least $10 an hour. Seattle's current minimum wage is $9.47, the same as the Washington state minimum wage. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)SEATTLE (AP) — In a story April 1 about Seattle's minimum wage law, The Associated Press erroneously reported the amount the small restaurant chain Skillet had raised wages. Skillet is phasing in a wage increase, as the law allows, not immediately increasing pay to $15 an hour.
