Mayor signs law to create NYC municipal ID cards

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 07/11/2014 - 07:33

Shapreice Townsend, left, looks at a pen he received from New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, center, who signed a bill into law for New York City municipal identification cards, outside the main Brooklyn library Thursday, July 10, 2014, in New York. The cards, dubbed NYC ID, are expected to be available in January. They will be available to anyone who can prove their identity and residence in the nation's largest city. Townsend, from the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn, said he grew up in the city's foster care system and having the card would allow him to access birth records to "correct wrong spellings of his name" and "stop police harassment" because he couldn't produce an identification for an NYPD officer. (AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews)NEW YORK (AP) — Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday signed into law a plan to offer identification cards to residents regardless of their immigration statuses, providing a valuable document to access certain services for those who struggled to get them.

Florida man executed for 1994 rape and murder of girl

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 07/11/2014 - 07:22
By Bill Cotterell TALLAHASSEE (Reuters) - A man who confessed to the rape and murder of an 11-year-old girl was executed by lethal injection on Thursday, the Florida Department of Corrections said. Eddie Wayne Davis, 45, was sentenced to death in 1995 after he admitted to taking the girl from her mother’s home, sexually assaulting and strangling her. His death follows a string of executions in the U.S. South last month, including those of two other men in Florida and Georgia, in the wake of a botched Oklahoma execution in April that sparked an uproar among death penalty opponents. Davis confessed three times to the murder of Kimberly Waters, who was found strangled in a dumpster in 1994.

Poll workers review voter authorization forms and provisional ballots after the polls closed at a church during the U.S. presidential election in Charlotte, North CarolinaBy Colleen Jenkins WINSTON-SALEM N.C. (Reuters) - North Carolina's overhauled election law should be halted before the midterm elections in November to avoid discrimination against African Americans and young voters, lawyers for the Justice Department and civil rights groups said on Thursday. U.S. District Judge Thomas Schroeder did not immediately rule at the end of the four-day hearing in Winston-Salem but said he would issue a written opinion soon. North Carolina is among several states forced to defend changes to voting protocol, including its requirement for voters to show photo identification at the polls starting in 2016. Similar to voting rights battles nationwide, race and politics have been at the forefront of the North Carolina fight.
