Chicago police use stop-and-frisk excessively: ACLU report

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/24/2015 - 06:30
By Fiona Ortiz CHICAGO (Reuters) - The Chicago Police Department defended its policing tactics on Monday after the American Civil Liberties Union reported what it said were excessive stop-and-frisk searches compared with other U.S. cities. The ACLU said that its study of a four-month period last year showed "that African Americans are disproportionately subjected to stops when compared to their white counterparts. Black Chicagoans were subjected to 72 percent of all stops, yet constitute just 32 percent of the city's population." The ACLU issued the report at a time of increased scrutiny of policing practices and nationwide protests over the shooting and chokehold deaths of unarmed African American men. When Chicago police stop someone on the street but don't make an arrest, they fill out a contact card about the person and the reason for the stop.

Evidence is growing that gender equity is not just politically correct window-dressing, but good business. Yet while companies are trying to increase the number of women in executive positions, many are struggling because of a failure to adapt workplace conditions in a way that ensures qualified women do not drop off the corporate ladder.

New Orleans judge declares Robert Durst major flight risk, denies bail

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/24/2015 - 06:22

Murder suspect Robert Durst is seen with a newly shaved head as he sits in a hearing, in this court sketch in New OrleansBy Jonathan Kaminsky NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - Robert Durst, the real estate scion awaiting extradition to California to face a murder charge, was denied bail on Monday after a judge deemed him to be a potential danger to others and a likely flight risk. Durst, recently featured in the HBO documentary "The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst," must remain in Louisiana on local weapons charges at least until his next court date on April 2, Magistrate Judge Harry Cantrell ruled. Durst's lawyer, Dick DeGuerin, did not seek bail but argued his client's arrest and the search of his hotel room earlier this month in New Orleans were improper, and that investigators wrongly interviewed him without counsel present. The HBO documentary broadcast Durst being presented with evidence that his handwriting appeared to match that of Berman's likely killer.

Obamacare subsidies likely expanded insurance coverage: report

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/24/2015 - 06:18

A man sits at a health insurance enrollment event in Cudahy, CaliforniaBy Susan Cornwell WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Early evidence suggests that the tax credit subsidies at the core of President Barack Obama's healthcare reform law likely helped expand U.S. health insurance coverage last year, Congress's non-partisan research arm said on Monday. The subsidies - which can be paid by the federal government to insurers in advance to lower monthly insurance premiums - significantly reduced the premium costs, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) said in a report. "Surveys GAO identified estimated that the uninsured rate declined significantly among households with incomes eligible for the APTC (Advanced Premium Tax Credit)," the GAO said.

Protesters call for charges in San Francisco police shooting

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/24/2015 - 06:13
By Emmett Berg SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Protesters rallied outside a San Francisco police station on Monday, calling for prosecutors to reverse course and file charges against officers who shot and killed a man who pointed a stun gun at them in a city park, firing a total of 59 shots. The death of Alex Nieto, 28, in a hail of police bullets on March 21, 2014, pre-dates recent police killings of unarmed black men that have touched off a nationwide wave of demonstrations over the use of deadly force against minorities. Prosecutors last month declined to file charges against the four San Francisco police officers who opened fire on Nieto in Bernal Hill Park, saying they believed the Taser electroshock device he was holding was a gun. In calling for the San Francisco District Attorney's Office to reconsider that decision, activists said they were skeptical of the police version of events and that investigators did not interview a key witness in the case.
