Los Angeles police chief, union at odds over homeless man's slaying

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 05/08/2015 - 03:49
By Steve Gorman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The union representing Los Angeles Police Department officers has lashed out at LAPD Chief Charlie Beck for comments suggesting that the police slaying of an unarmed man during a scuffle in Venice Beach was unjustified. "Any time an unarmed person is shot by a Los Angeles officer, it take extraordinary circumstances to justify that, and I have not seen those extraordinary circumstances," he said. "I don't know what was in the officer's mind." Beck's comments drew sharp criticism from the head of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, Craig Lally, who called the chief's remarks "completely irresponsible." "As the final trier of fact in the use-of-force investigation and disciplinary process, the premature decision by the chief essentially renders the investigation process void," Lally said. "By making his opinion public without having all the faces, he influences the investigation for all parties involved, including his command officers and the public." The slain man was shot, according to police, during an altercation with two LAPD officers who were trying to detain him about two blocks from the Venice Beach boardwalk.

Ohio man held in alleged U.S. Capitol plot hit with new charge

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 05/08/2015 - 03:43
An Ohio man already in custody for an alleged plot to attack the U.S. Capitol in January has been charged with the additional crime of attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State militant group, the U.S. Justice Department said on Thursday. Christopher Lee Cornell, 21, pleaded not guilty in federal court in Cincinnati in January to plotting an attack on the U.S. Capitol with guns and bombs. In March, prosecutors asked a judge to limit Cornell's phone access in jail after he gave an interview to Cincinnati's FOX 19 WXIX TV in which he said that he wanted to shoot President Barack Obama in the head. The additional charge was brought by a federal grand jury in Cincinnati and carries a sentence of up to 15 years in prison.
