In Baltimore, U.S. attorney general pledges to help police reform

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/06/2015 - 05:03

Attorney General Loretta Lynch shake hands with Baltimore police officers during a visit to the Central District of Baltimore Police DepartmentNew U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Tuesday met with Baltimore officials and the family of a 25-year-old black man who died of injuries sustained in police custody last month and vowed to help the city pursue police reform. Lynch visited Baltimore days after the city's chief prosecutor brought criminal charges, including one murder charge, against six officers involved in the April 12 arrest of Freddie Gray. Gray's death was the latest in a series of unarmed black men involving police officers across the United States and provoked weeks of largely peaceful protests punctuated by a day of arson and looting in Baltimore on April 27. "We lost a young man's life and it begins to represent so many things." Baltimore prosecutor Marilyn Mosby said last Friday that there had been no legal basis for Gray's arrest.

California asks court to block prisoner's sex-reassignment surgery

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/06/2015 - 04:50
By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - California officials have asked an appeals court to block a judge's order requiring the state to pay for the sex-reassignment surgery of a prisoner, arguing in court papers that the inmate has no medical need for the operation. Michelle-Lael Norsworthy, 51, who was born male but identifies as a woman, was convicted of second-degree murder in 1987. U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar ruled in April that by refusing to provide for the operation, the state was violating the constitutional rights of Norsworthy, who is serving a life sentence at Mule Creek State Prison in Ione, California. The California Attorney General's Office has appealed the ruling to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
