Yahoo! National News - Sat, 01/17/2015 - 11:12
By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A Los Angeles police officer involved in a high-profile shooting death of an unarmed black man in August had arrested him six years earlier for marijuana possession, but the officer did not recognize him, a police spokesman said on Friday. The Aug. 11 shooting death of Ezell Ford, 25, who according to a family lawyer had mental issues, in mostly poor South Los Angeles has raised tensions between police and some people in the city's African-American community. The 2008 arrest of Ford was first reported by the Los Angeles Times. Ford family attorney Steven Lerman, who has sued the city over the death, has said the officers knew Ford and that he was harmless.

Christian publisher pulls heaven book after boy retracts story: report

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 01/17/2015 - 10:08
(Reuters) - A Christian publisher moved to pull a popular book by a boy who described his time in heaven while in a coma, the Washington Post reported on Friday, days after the child, who co-authored the book with his father, retracted his story. In an open letter posted online on Tuesday, Alex Malarkey, 16, wrote that he made up the story contained in his 2010 memoir, "The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven," because he thought it would bring him attention. They should read the bible, which is enough." Tyndale House, the publisher, said it would stop selling Malarkey's book about the time he spent in heaven after a 2004 car crash left him in a coma for two months, which he co-authored with his father, Kevin Malarkey, the Washington Post reported. The young author's mother, Beth Malarkey, wrote in a blog post in April that the book was "in error" and that her son, who is paralyzed from the car accident, "has not received monies from the book nor have a majority of his needs been funded by it." The book contract with Tyndale was with Kevin Malarkey, and not Alex or Beth, the Post reported.
