Trial To Begin For White Police Officer Who Shot Unarmed Black Teen

A white suburban police officer goes on trial in Pittsburgh on Tuesday for fatally shooting an unarmed black teenager last summer . Former East Pittsburgh police officer Michael Rosfeld shot and killed 17-year-old Antwon Rose in June 2018 as the teen ran from a car that the officer had pulled over. The vehicle had been involved in a drive-by shooting 13 minutes earlier. The teen, however, was unarmed, and just last week, another passenger in the car pleaded guilty to firing in the drive-by. Someone in a nearby house filmed the officer shooting at Rose and posted the video on Facebook hours later. "Before the police could create a narrative that would justify the shooting of Antwon, we saw the video: We saw him running away," local activist Jasiri X said. Rose's death sparked weeks of protests that shut down local roadways. Demonstrators felt that Rose's death fit a national pattern of police brutality against black residents. Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala charged

Dick Dale, King Of Surf Guitar, Dies At 81

AILSA CHANG, HOST: A white police officer goes on trial in Pittsburgh tomorrow. He's accused of fatally shooting an unarmed black teen last summer. Even though it happened in Pittsburgh, the jurors in this case are coming from the city of Harrisburg. A judge had ruled that pretrial publicity in Pittsburgh posed a threat to a fair trial. From member station WESA, An-Li Herring has more details. AN-LI HERRING, BYLINE: It was around 9 p.m. on June 19 that suburban Pittsburgh officer Michael Rosfeld pulled over a car that had been involved in a drive-by shooting just minutes earlier. His gun drawn, he ordered the three occupants out of the vehicle and to the ground. Suddenly, the two passengers bolted. One of them was Antwon Rose, who Rosfeld shot three times while he was fleeing. Rose had no weapon. And just last week, the other fleeing suspect pleaded guilty to firing the shots in the drive-by. Someone in a nearby house caught the shooting on video, posting it on Facebook hours later.

Russia Criminalizes The Spread Of Online News Which 'Disrespects' The Government

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a new law which will allow the punishment of individuals and online media for spreading what Russia calls "fake news" and information which "disrespects" the state. The new rules allow prosecutors to direct complaints about material considered insulting to Russian officials to the government, which can then block websites publishing the information. Publications that repeatedly spread "unreliable" information which undermines social order, may face fines of up to $23,000, and repeat offenders could spend time in jail, according to The Washington Post . The laws will target online information that presents "clear disrespect for society, government, state symbols, the constitution and government institutions." The Moscow Times reports, "Online news outlets and users that spread 'fake news' will face fines of up to 1.5 million rubles ($22,900) for repeat offenses. Insulting state symbols and the authorities, including Putin, will carry a fine of

Democrats Call For Investigation Into Pro-Trump Former Owner Of Massage Parlors

High-ranking Democrats on Capitol Hill are calling for a counterintelligence investigation into a woman who has peddled access to President Trump and who founded the massage parlor where New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is accused of soliciting sex . Li "Cindy" Yang has been the subject of a number of reports in recent weeks, notably in The New York Times and the Miami Herald , which have detailed how she created a business that advertised "entry to events, including White House visits, 'VIP activities at Mar-a-Lago' and Warren Buffett's annual meeting of Berkshire Hathaway shareholders," according to The Times. She was photographed in February with Trump at a Super Bowl party that Kraft also attended, according to the Herald. And she also reportedly arranged for a group of Chinese business executives to attend a paid fundraiser for the president in late 2017. " If true, these allegations raise serious counterintelligence concerns," wrote the highest-ranking Democrats on the
