Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 02:57
Police have arrested the wife of a New York City man who filmed an officer using a choke hold on a suspect who later died, authorities said on Wednesday, charging her with misdemeanor assault days after her husband was detained on unrelated gun charges. The woman, Chrissie Ortiz, 30, has been a vocal critic of the police following the arrest on Saturday of her 22-year-old husband, Ramsey Orta, on weapons possession charges. She has claimed that police arrested Orta because of the July 17 cellphone video he shot during the arrest of Eric Garner, who was placed in a choke hold by a police officer while being detained for allegedly peddling illegal cigarettes. The choke hold is banned by the NYPD, which is investigating the incident.

Man pleads not guilty to possessing gun believed tied to Boston bombing

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 02:45

MIT Police Officer Sean Collier, 26, of Somerville, Mass.A high school friend of the accused Boston Marathon bomber pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to charges including having owned a gun that prosecutors believe may have been used by suspects in the 2013 attack. Stephen Silva, 21, appeared in Boston federal court to enter his plea on charges that include drug violations as well as having possessed a Ruger P95 9mm pistol with its serial number filed off. Prosecutors say Silva possessed the firearm in February 2013, two months before the bombing suspects, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, used a similar weapon to kill a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) police officer three days after the bombing at the Boston Marathon that killed three people and injured more than 260. Jonathan Shapiro, Silva’s lawyer, outside court on Wednesday emphasized that the indictment does not draw a connection between Silva and the alleged Boston Marathon bombers.
