Departments use technology to ID troubled officers

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 09/05/2014 - 01:07

FILE - In this Sept. 18, 2010 file photo, officers on bicycles keep watch as demonstrators protesting several incidents of alleged Los Angeles Police Department brutality, including the fatal shooting of Manuel Jamines a month ago, stand outside the LAPD's Rampart Station in the Westlake district of Los Angeles. Police departments across the U.S. are using technology to try to identify problem officers before their misbehavior harms innocent people, embarrasses their employer, or invites a costly lawsuit, from citizens or the federal government. The Los Angeles Police Department agreed to set up their $33 million early warning systems after the so-called Rampart scandal in which an elite anti-gang unit was found to have beaten and framed suspected gang members. The system was then implemented in 2007.

The 2013 adult obesity rate exceeds 20% in every state, while 42 have rates above 25%.

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 09/05/2014 - 00:43

Steve McGlinchey poses in Farmington Hills, Mich., Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014. A new study has found that, while Americans are mistrustful of each other and institutions -- from government to corporations and the media -- young people are among the least likely age group to have confidence in those institutions, especially since the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. McGlinchey, 21, is among them, and is particularly skeptical of the government and corporate America. "I do not trust the government as far as I can throw a car," he says. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)CHICAGO (AP) — They're often pegged as the civic-minded, do-gooding generation. But while they're still optimistic about their own personal prospects, a new study finds that today's youth are often more skeptical of the country's institutions than the young generations that preceded them.
