Yahoo! National News - Fri, 06/19/2015 - 01:53
By Jeff Mason WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama on Thursday expressed anger over the "senseless" shooting in a black church in South Carolina and said Americans had to confront the fact that frequent incidents of gun violence do not occur in other advanced countries. Obama, in a statement to reporters at the White House, said he and his wife, Michelle, knew Reverend Clementa Pinckney, the pastor of the historic African-American church in Charleston, who was killed along with eight others on Wednesday night. "To say our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families and their community doesn't say enough to covey the heartache and the sadness and the anger that we feel," Obama said, adding it was particularly heartbreaking that the incident occurred in a place of worship.

U.S. top court backs death row inmate over intellectual disability claim

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 06/19/2015 - 01:47
A divided U.S. Supreme Court gave a convicted cop killer on Louisiana's death row a chance to avert execution, ruling on Thursday that the man was eligible for a hearing on whether he is intellectually disabled. The court, in a 5-4 decision, threw out a 2014 appeals court ruling that barred Kevan Brumfield from asking for the special hearing in which a lower court judge subsequently found he was intellectually disabled. Brumfield, convicted in 1995 of murdering off-duty Baton Rouge police officer Betty Smothers during an attempted bank robbery, will remain on death row for now.
