Lynch's handling of police in Baltimore is contrast to Holder

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/06/2015 - 06:14
By Julia Edwards WASHINGTON (Reuters) - When U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch visited Baltimore on Tuesday, in the wake of rioting over the death in police custody of Freddie Gray, she made a deliberate attempt to cast herself as different from her predecessor. She visited police headquarters. Former attorney general Eric Holder faced eerily similar circumstances to Lynch in August 2014, amid civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, after Michael Brown was killed by a police officer. While Holder met with many people, including Brown's parents, he did not visit the police station.

File photo of accused Aurora theater shooting suspect James Holmes listens at his arraignment in CentennialBy Keith Coffman CENTENNIAL, Colo. (Reuters) - Colorado movie theater gunman James Holmes' apartment was rigged with improvised explosive devices, jars of napalm and fire-accelerating chemical powder sprinkled on the floor, an FBI expert told jurors at his trial on Tuesday. Prosecutors say Holmes, a 27-year-old former neuroscience graduate student, planned to divert emergency crews by destroying his home in the Denver suburb of Aurora while he opened fire on a packed midnight premiere of the Batman film "The Dark Knight Rises." Holmes has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to multiple counts of murder and attempted murder for killing 12 people and wounding 70 in the July 2012 rampage. FBI bomb technician Special Agent Garrett Gumbinner, who interviewed the defendant soon after his arrest, showed the jury photos from Holmes' apartment near the theater, some taken with a remote-controlled bomb robot.
