Colorado deputies end dramatic crime spree captured on camera

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 01:56
By Daniel Wallis DENVER (Reuters) - Sheriff's deputies in Colorado ended a two-hour crime spree by a couple suspected of carjacking when a lone officer tackled a gun-toting man following a dramatic pursuit that was caught on camera. Authorities say Christopher David Sullivan, 37, and an underage girl fled on Wednesday after being stopped by a Jefferson County deputy for a traffic violation, triggering a manhunt around Lookout Mountain, about 12 miles west of Denver. "During the suspects' attempts to elude police they stole three vehicles, burglarized two homes, menaced 12 innocent bystanders and left at least six separate crime scenes in their wake," Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said on Thursday in a statement. Waving his rifle, he tries unsuccessfully to stop several vehicles on a nearby highway before being confronted at gunpoint by a Jefferson County motorcycle officer.

One Kuwaiti inmate to stay at Guantanamo, second goes home: panel

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 01:55
By Ian Simpson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Kuwaiti man with links to al Qaeda will remain at the Guantanamo Bay prison, while a second is cleared for transfer home, a U.S. national security panel said on Friday. Faez Mohammed Ahmed al-Kandari, who has been held at the U.S. prison in Cuba without charge since 2002, is a security threat because he is susceptible to recruitment by extremists, the Periodic Review Board said. Al-Kandari "almost certainly retains an extremist mindset and had close ties with high-level al Qaeda leaders in the past," the review board said in a ruling posted on a Defense Department website. A Pentagon profile ahead of his board hearing in June said al-Kandari had served as an al Qaeda recruiter.

Judge denies bid for new trial in 'Fatal Vision' murder case

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 01:24
By Colleen Jenkins WINSTON-SALEM N.C. (Reuters) - An Army doctor whose conviction for the 1970 murders of his pregnant wife and two daughters prompted the bestseller "Fatal Vision" and a television mini-series has failed to convince a U.S. judge he deserves another trial. New evidence offered by Jeffrey MacDonald's attorneys in the latest round of a decades-long fight to prove his innocence was unreliable and insufficient to warrant further jury proceedings, Senior U.S. District Judge James Fox ruled on Thursday. MacDonald, a former Green Beret, is serving three life sentences for the stabbing and clubbing deaths of his family in their Fort Bragg, North Carolina, apartment in February 1970. They offered testimony about a now-deceased woman who told witnesses she was in the MacDonald home during the crime and DNA test results of hair found by the bodies that did not belong to Jeffrey MacDonald or any of his family members.

Families urge resumption of adoptions from Congo

Hanging behind the boys are drawings of airplanes that they made; they've been obsessed with planes since learning that's how they will be united with their American parents.

Kansas top court overturns death sentences in 'Wichita Massacre'

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 01:23
The Kansas Supreme Court on Friday overturned death sentences for two brothers convicted in the 2000 execution-style murder of four people on a snowy soccer field in Wichita, ruling that the trial judge erred in refusing to conduct separate penalty phases for the two men. Jonathan and Reginald Carr were sentenced to death in 2002. Their December 2000 crime spree, known as the Wichita Massacre, included the kidnapping of three men and two women in a home invasion that included rape and sexual humiliation. The court affirmed some of the convictions against the two brothers, including murder, but vacated the death penalty for both of them, sending the case back to district court for new sentencing.

Landlords say San Francisco anti-eviction law unconstitutional

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 01:23
By Jennifer Baires SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - (This story corrects to show family lives in duplex but wants to take possession of entire building in paragraph four) A San Francisco law requiring landlords to pay large sums of money to tenants before removing a property from the rental market was challenged in federal court on Thursday amid rising tensions between renters and landlords in the expensive city. The lawsuit filed by Pacific Legal Foundation on behalf of Daniel and Maria Levin, a married couple who own a two-unit house in San Francisco, argues that the new ordinance is unconstitutional because it violates the homeowners’ privacy and property rights. “The Levins just don’t want to be landlords anymore,” J. David Breemer, lead attorney on the case, said.
