Slain Mexican farmworker's parents call for U.S. Justice Dept. probe

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 02/28/2015 - 05:09
By Eric M. Johnson SEATTLE (Reuters) - The parents of a Mexican farmworker fatally shot by police in Washington state after he pelted them with rocks and tried to flee urged the U.S. Justice Department on Friday to take over a local investigation into the slaying. His death sparked protests by demonstrators who accused police in the city of Pasco in Washington state's agricultural heartland of overly aggressive tactics in dealing with Hispanic residents, who make up a majority of the population. "We pray that for the sake of peace and safety and international relations that you rise to (the) occasion, and wrest control of the criminal investigation from the hands of county prosecutors in Washington state," Crump said in a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. Zambrano-Montes' parents, Agapita Montes Rivera and J. Jesus Zambrano Fernandez, joined U.S. rights groups in urging the Justice Department to launch a probe into the incident, which the Mexican government has condemned as a disproportionate use of lethal force.

By Sebastien Malo NEW YORK (Reuters) - A former Long Island banana importer was sent to prison on Friday for as long as four years for beating his girlfriend, despite her emotional courtroom appeal to a judge for leniency.

Slain U.S. journalist's father: identification of 'Jihadi John' not important

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 02/28/2015 - 04:10
The father of American journalist James Foley, who was taken captive in Syria and later decapitated by Islamic State militants, has said it was "not important" to him that his son's purported killer, "Jihadi John," had been identified. The Washington Post reported on Thursday that "Jihadi John," who was shown in Islamic State videos of the beheadings of several captives, had been identified as Kuwaiti-born British national Mohammed Emwazi, 26. "'Jihadi John' happened to be in that position, but if it was not him it would be somebody else, so in all fairness discovering who he is might be important to some people, but it's certainly not important to me," John Foley told reporters in Arizona, according to video from local television station KSWT. Foley, whose son's beheading was shown in a video released last August, also said he will be happy when Islamic State "is defeated." John Foley and his wife, Diane, speaking on Thursday on the sidelines of a forum in Tucson, Arizona, where they were panelists, criticized how the U.S. government dealt with them while their son was held captive.
