A Mississippi cop held a young man by the neck as onlookers screamed, “He can’t breathe!,” troubling video shows. The 2-minute clip posted to Facebook Friday shows a uniformed Jackson police officer with both hands wrapped around the man’s neck. “What did I tell you to do?” the officer screams at the man, video shows. “Make me, make me, make me … I said make me, boy.” The officer, identified by the Jackson Free Press as Myron Smith, then tells a woman who tries to intervene to take her hands off him as she says the man is having trouble breathing. “He’s trying to breathe!” she says. “He’s telling you he can’t breathe.”

In a victory for the news media and others seeking electronic records from public agencies in California, the state Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the government cannot require them to pay the cost of removing confidential material from the records. The court unanimously overturned a state appeals court decision in 2018 that allowed the city of Hayward to charge the National Lawyers Guild more than $3,000 for copying and assembling body camera videos from Hayward police after a December 2014 protest march in Berkeley against police violence, in which some protesters were injured. Much of the cost was for identifying and deleting footage on personal police information

The federal government says it is reviewing a Chinese mining company’s proposed $207 million buyout of a struggling gold mining company in Nunavut under the Investment Canada Act, as a high-profile case against a Chinese executive in Canada reaches a crucial point. Shandong Gold Mining Co. Ltd., a Chinese state-owned enterprise that’s listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange, announced earlier this month it would purchase Toronto-based TMAC Resources Inc., which operates a mine near Cambridge Bay that has been beset by operational challenges. Ottawa declined to provide any details (snip) but lawyers who practise in this area said the government can easily invoke national security concerns

A Canadian court has ruled that the case of senior Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou, who is fighting extradition to the United States, can go forward. A judge found that the case meets the threshold of double criminality - meaning the charges would be crimes in both the US and Canada. The US wants Ms Meng to stand trial on charges linked to the alleged violation of US sanctions against Iran. Her case has created a rift between China and Canada. Her lead defence lawyer, Richard Peck, has argued in court that Canada is effectively being asked "to enforce US sanctions". But Associate Chief Justice Heather Holmes ruled

Doctors at a California hospital are reporting more deaths by suicide than coronavirus during the stay-at-home orders, and one doctor is calling the influx of suicide deaths “unprecedented,” according to ABC 7. John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, in the East Bay region of San Francisco Bay Area, has seen a “year’s worth of suicide attempts in the last four weeks,” the head of the trauma department, Dr. Mike deBoisblanc told ABC 7. “We’ve never seen numbers like this, in such a short period of time,”(snip). Mental health is suffering so much during the stay-at-home period implemented due to coronavirus that he’s calling for an end to the orders.

Democratic Colorado Gov. Jared Polis has restricted what personal information his state agencies will provide to federal immigration authorities, the latest measure he’s taken to protect Colorado’s illegal alien population. Polis quietly issued new policy guidance on Wednesday, directing state agencies not to provide Coloradans’s personal data to federal entities that intend to use the information for the sole purpose of immigration enforcement, according to the Colorado Sun. The new directive ultimately prevents Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers from obtaining such data unless they are investigating a crime or carrying a court order. Per the four-page executive guidance, information such as (snip) names and addresses cannot be released

New York nursing homes were forced to accept more than 4,500 coronavirus patients from hospitals thanks to an order from Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a tally by The Associated Press found. Cuomo has come under heated criticism for his March 25 order forcing recovering COVID-19 patients into New York nursing homes — a decision blamed for the state’s high body count among the elderly. The governor waited roughly six weeks before reversing the order on May 10. The New York State Department of Health refused to release the results of an internal survey on how many coronavirus patients were placed in nursing homes across the state,

On Jenny Marr's 34th birthday, she and her husband decided it was time to start trying for a baby. Both only children, Jenny Marr, 35, and her husband, Chris Marr, 35, live in Dallas. They would have been happy with just one child - a compact family of four, including their dog Zeke. On Oct. 6, she took a pregnancy test: It was positive. The couple, yearning to hear the sound of a steady heartbeat, began counting down until they would finally see their baby on a sonogram screen. Little did they know, though, that they had not one, not two, not three, but four heartbeats to hear and four
Gavin Newsom responds to Justice Department
warning over church closures

After receiving a formal warning from the United States Justice Department over church closures, California Gov. Gavin Newsom said his state is "weeks away" from allowing in-person religious services to resume. A group of federal attorneys wrote a letter to Newsom warning him that prolonged church closures likely violate the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment due to the fact that similar non-religious businesses are receiving the green light to reopen in Stage 2. "Laws that do not treat religious activities equally with comparable nonreligious activities are subject to heightened scrutiny under the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment," the letter states.

State Rep. Karen Whitsett, D-Detroit, filed a federal lawsuit Thursday against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and several fellow Democrats, claiming violations of free speech and defamation. Specifically, Whitsett claimed Whitmer and the 13th Congressional District Democratic Party Organization sought to deprive her of her right to engage in protected speech after she publicly thanked President Donald Trump for his suggestion of using the drug hydroxychloroquine to treat her coronavirus case. Whitsett contracted the virus in March and has been open about her appreciation for the president’s suggestion, which she says saved her life.

Is Judge Emmet Sullivan’s collusion cameo nearing its end? Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, on its own motion, ordered Judge Sullivan to respond within ten days to the petition for a writ of mandamus filed by Michael Flynn. Earlier this week, Flynn’s counsel, Sidney Powell, filed the petition for that extraordinary writ, asking the appellate court to instruct Sullivan to grant the Justice Department’s motion to dismiss the case against Flynn. That was after Judge Sullivan not only declined to grant the prosecution’s motion, but (a) invited non-parties to intervene in the case by filing amicus briefs (transparently, to make arguments that he somehow has

Beginning this week, Mexican nationals arrested for crossing the border illegally will be flown to Mexico City instead of being dropped off at ports of entry. As border restrictions were extended on Tuesday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection decided to alter its own policy. Now, instead of immediately being returned through border crossings, detained migrants will have to wait in custody up to three days before being flown all the way to Mexico City. Border Patrol officials said the change in policy was needed to keep Mexican nationals from repeatedly trying to cross into the United States.(snip). People from nations other than Mexico, were already being flown back to their
