Kentucky grand jury indicts one of three officers in Breonna Taylor case

Jefferson Circuit Judge Annie O’Connell read the grand jury’s decision in open court. Media reports said the officer indicted was Detective Brett Hankison.

Police shot Taylor, 26, in front of her boyfriend after they forced their way into her apartment with a so-called “no knock” warrant.

Taylor’s death, alongside that of George Floyd, a Black man who died in May after a white Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck, helped spark a nationwide wave of protests demanding racial justice and an end to the use of excessive force by law enforcement.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron was due to hold a news conference to announce the grand jury’s decision regarding Hankison, Sergeant Jonathan Mattingly and Detective Myles Cosgrove.

Indian Premier League 2020, KKR vs MI | Rohit Sharma takes Mumbai to competitive total

KKR opted for Eoin Morgan, Pat Cummins, Andre Russell and Sunil Narine as their overseas players

Skipper Rohit Sharma pummelled the Kolkata Knight Riders bowling into submission and powered Mumbai Indians to an imposing 195 for five in the Indian Premier League (IPL) here on Wednesday.

After Shivam Mavi (2/32) removed opener Quinton De Kock (1) cheaply, Rohit (80 off 54 balls; 3 fours, 6 sixes) and Suryakumar Yadav (47 off 28; 6 fours, 1 six) conjured 90 runs for the second wicket to pull the team out of trouble.

Rohit, who began with a maximum, displayed his languid grace and elegance as he took the Kolkata attack to the cleansers. Surya effortlessly smashed four boundaries off Sandeep Warrier (0/34), including a cover-drive and a flick, in the third over.

Rohit got going after smas...

Advocate Vijay Aggarwal, appearing for Choksi, said there is a footage about his client in the series which allegedly shows him in ...

Prime Minister Narendra Modi Wednesday asked states to gauge if local lockdowns of one or two days were effective in containing Covid-19 and asked them to move ahead with full strength on the economic front while fighting the pandemic.

In a review meeting with chief ministers of seven states/UTs with a high number of cases, PM Modi put forward the strategy of having “micro containment zones” as it would curb the infection spread and also allow activities to go on.

“Every state should observe how effective they are in preventing the coronavirus, which is a 1-2 day local lockdown...

Statewide View: Energy access more important than the politics being played over Line 3

Instead of trusting the state’s expert regulators — in particular the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission, or PUC, which has voted in approval of the Line 3 project three times — Walz and his comrades seem to be working up new hypotheses on why the project is unnecessary. The freshest is an allegation that Enbridge’s analysis of demand for oil carried through the pipeline is overstated.

The Walz administration contends that a proper study would reveal much lower demand for Line 3-transported oil — but Enbridge has put forth real evidence of demand; the same cannot be said for the position of project opponents.

Further, there seems to be a “never-mind” attitude to the notion that it is in the best interest of the public to update an old and corroding pipeline with modern infr...
