The caller linked the man's appearance on campus to the game and Leslie Robinson, a freshman forward at Princeton and the daughter of Michelle Obama's brother, USA Today said. In addition to normal game security, undercover security officers were near the Princeton bench.

After 28 years on California's death row, inmate dies of natural causes

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/24/2015 - 07:59
By Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Reuters) - A California inmate sentenced to death 28 years ago died in hospice care this week, the state said Monday, bringing the total of condemned inmates who passed away from natural causes to 68 in a state that has not carried out an execution in years. The death of Teofilo Medina, Jr., 70, at a medical facility near Sacramento comes amid ongoing controversy in California over how the death penalty is administered, including a recent decision by a federal judge declaring the state's use of capital punishment unconstitutional, because inmates lingered on death row for years or even decades. "This is just another wake-up call to say that California's death penalty system doesn't work," said Ellen Kreitzberg, a death penalty expert at Santa Clara Law school near San Jose.

Suspect killed, officer shot in Arizona Wal-Mart parking lot brawl

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/24/2015 - 07:44
One suspect was fatally shot and a policeman wounded during a brawl in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Arizona in which eight officers were assaulted and seven suspects were eventually arrested, officials said. The officers from the Cottonwood Police Department were responding to a call shortly before midnight on Saturday saying a female Wal-Mart employee had been assaulted inside the store by multiple suspects, authorities said. When they arrived, "the suspects were in the parking lot and immediately attacked the responding officers," the Arizona Department of Public Safety said in a statement. Authorities said Sergeant Jeremy Daniels, 31, was shot in the leg but should make a full recovery after being flown to a hospital in Flagstaff, about 45 miles to the northeast, for surgery.
