    Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner defends his relationship with the notorious crown prince of Saudi of Arabia in a forthcoming memoir, saying that Mohammed Bin Salman was a reforming power in the kingdom and that he believed his denials of any personal involvement in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. Kushner's ties to MBS have been under intense scrutiny this year. Six months after leaving the White House, his new private equity firm secured a $2 billion investment from a fund led by the 36-year-old Saudi crown prince, raising questions about whether Kushner was being rewarded for acting as a go-between. In 'Breaking History: A White House Memoir,' which will be published on August 23, Kushner defends working with MBS, even after dissident journalist Khashoggi was killed in 2018 at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. 'While this situation was terrible, I couldn't ignore the fact that the reforms that MBS was implementing were having a positive impact on millions of people in the kingdom—especially women,' he writes, according to excerpts published by the Wall Street Journal. 'All of these reforms were major...
    (CNN)When a police officer fatally shoots a black man, the legal system often sides with the cop. Some officers never get charged. It's even more rare for officers to get convicted. So when Dallas jurors convicted Amber Guyger of murder -- not a lesser charge of manslaughter -- jaws dropped across the country. Police shootings: Trials, convictions are rare for officers "I, for one, was not expecting a white police officer to be convicted on the more serious charge for killing a black man, however bizarre the circumstances," CNN Opinion contributor Jill Filipovic wrote. "What this guilty verdict may at least show is there are some lines even white police officers can't cross when killing unarmed black people." But prosecutors didn't focus on race during the trial. Read MoreSo how did they secure this rare conviction in a police-involved shooting? Jurors haven't spoken publicly yet. But prosecutors highlighted several unique elements in making their case. Details of the case were just too bizarreMany observers had a hard time believing Guyger made a reasonable mistake when she went to Botham Jean's...
    An armed homicide suspect has been taken into custody after an early morning officer-involved shooting in Capitol Heights, authorities say. The shooting occurred after two officers attempted to execute an arrest warrant for the suspect at his home on the 1600 block of Eastern Avenue around 5 a.m., Monday, June 13, according to the Prince George's County Police Department. The officers were let into the home by a family member and were led to the basement to apprehend the suspect. The officers announced themselves repeatedly before approaching the suspect, who then flashed a gun toward the officers. After the threat by the suspect, the officers fired their weapons. No injuries were reported at the scene and the suspect was arrested.

    Surveillance images show Naomi Irion in a convenience store shortly before she went missing on March 12. (Lyon County sheriff)  A man has been arrested in connection with the disappearance of a Reno-area teenager but the young woman is still missing, said the sheriff’s office in Nevada’s Lyon County. Troy Driver, 41, of Fallon, was arrested Friday on suspicion of kidnapping Naomi Irion, 18, who was last seen before dawn on March 12 waiting for a work shuttle outside a Walmart .

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is declining to disturb a decision that a Wisconsin man convicted of poisoning his wife should get a new trial. The high court said Tuesday that it would not hear the case, leaving in place a ruling in favor of Mark Jensen. As is typical, the justices did not explain their reason for rejecting the case. The case was included in a list of cases the court has decided not to hear. The Wisconsin Supreme Court concluded last year that Jensen deserves a new trial in the 1998 death of his wife Julie Jensen. At trial, prosecutors used a letter and voicemails to a police officer, in which Julie Jensen expressed her fear that her husband was planning to kill her. The Wisconsin Supreme Court said those statements can’t be used. Jensen has maintained his innocence. The case is Wisconsin v. Mark D. Jensen, 21-210. Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    The FBI has determined that the late Brian Laundrie was not involved in the unsolved murders of two women in Utah last year. Kylen Schulte, age 24, and her 38-year-old wife, Crystal Turner, were found shot multiple times in a ditch close to their campsite in the city of Moab, Utah on Wednesday, Aug. 18 after complaining about a “weirdo” and “creep” who had been camping near them. Days before the two women were killed, Long Island natives Gabby Petito and Laundrie, were questioned by Moab police officers in the area over a domestic violence call, causing many to speculate that Laundrie may have been involved in the murders.

    Bin Salman has denied any role in the death of the famed journalist. CNN reported that Alotaibi was also one of at least 16 individuals who were banned from the United States by the State Department in April 2019 for what was said to be "their roles in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi." By 2020, the British government placed Alotaibi under sanctions, saying that he was "involved in the unlawful killing of Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul ... as part of the 15 man team sent to Turkey by Saudi authorities" and "involved in the concealment of evidence at the Saudi General Consul's residence following the killing." According to reports, proceedings for Alotaibi's extradition to Turkey have begun. Anything else? Hatice Cengiz, the late Khashoggi's fiancee, told CNN that the arrest appeared to be "a very significant first step for justice for Jamal" and said that justice should "be allowed to take its proper course."

    A 29-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a terrifying home invasion that ended with the death of Los Angeles philanthropist Jacqueline Avant, Beverly Hills police announced Thursday afternoon.

He had accidentally shot himself in the foot and was found in the backyard of a home in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills Police Chief Mark Stainbrook said.

He is expected to be booked into jail after being treated at a hospital. “At this time, we’re only looking at him as a suspect, but again, there’s a lot of evidence to go through, so we’re leaving open the possibility there could be other people involved,” Stainbrook said. LAPD Deputy Chief Blake Chow said an “astute watch commander at Hollywood” saw some similarities between the two break-ins, prompting detectives working on the Avant case to get involved....

    Officials in North Korea were reportedly involved in murder, torture, and acts that could constitute genocide against certain groups of people, including Christians, a report released last week revealed. Evidence has been found that suggests government brass killed residents of the country, tortured political prisoners, engaged in sex trafficking, and conducted forced abortions as well as infanticide from 2014 to 2021, the United Kingdom's All-Party Parliamentary Group on North Korea wrote in a 91-page document. It was further found that rape, in addition to modern-day slavery, was commonplace, and much of the human rights abuses were focused on Christians and those whose descent was half Chinese. North Korea assigns the death penalty to crimes of premeditated murder, drug trafficking, and terrorism, though respondents interviewed by U.K. authorities alleged that government authorities would carry out public executions for offenses most would consider far less severe. In 2014, a defector said he witnessed the public killing of a man who shared South Korean movies in the Hyesan, Ryanggang province. Others indicated that they witnessed a similar execution for the same...

    There was a certain hilarious irony on Wednesday morning when Carole Baskin, famously featured in the Netflix docu-series Tiger King, appeared on CNN to talk about the tiger on the loose in Houston, TX. CNN’s New Day used part of their morning to cover the arrest of Victor Cuevas earlier this week after he evading the police amid charges of suspected murder. One of the weirdest things surrounding the Cuevas case though is that he has been connected to a recent incident where a tiger was seen roaming around Houston before someone, possibly Cuevas, loaded the cat into a pickup truck and drove off with it. The tiger is currently unaccounted for. When John Berman asked Baskin for her thoughts about the whole situation, she said that “this has become kind of commonplace in Texas.” She also hypothesized that the tiger was an aged-out “pay to play prop,” which is when exotic animals are taken away from their mothers at a young age, placed in captivity, and taken to places where people can pay a fee to play or interact...

    The Washington, D.C., acting police chief said the two teenage girls charged with armed carjacking and murder of an Uber Eats driver will not be charged as adults, saying that wouldn’t “bring back the lost loved one.” "The 15-year-old would not be charged as an adult. You know, obviously, this is a tragic case, and you know, charging this person as an adult [who’s] a juvenile … does not bring back the lost loved one in this case," acting Chief Robert Contee III told FOX 5 when asked if at least the 15-year-old should be charged as an adult. “And certainly, again, the 15-year-old would not be eligible as a Title 16 case, you know, and it’s not really pointing fingers at anyone — the courts or anyone." Mohammad Anwar died last Tuesday after the two unnamed teenage girls, ages 13 and 15, attempted to steal his car and used a Taser gun on him, police said. The car rolled over, and Anwar died. The girls were charged with felony murder and armed carjacking. DC MAYOR DELETES TWEET ABOUT AUTO...

    Witnesses to the stray-bullet slaying of Brooklyn baby Davell Gardner may be afraid to come forward for fear of retribution by those involved, NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said Tuesday. Department sources previously told The Post that a street code of silence and witness worries of being outed by state discovery laws were contributing to a lack of arrests since the horrific July murder. “I think people know who did that case,” Shea said in a wide-ranging press briefing Tuesday. The top cop said authorities are “trying to get prosecutions when you have at times less-than-willing … witnesses and other people involved.” Investigators have said that Davell, two months shy of his second birthday, was a collateral victim of a long-running war between rival Bedford-Stuyvesant gangs. The tot was enjoying a family cookout near Raymond Bush Playground on July 12 when a stray slug fatally struck his stomach — as his horrified mother looked on. Seeking two gunmen and a getaway driver, investigators have previously said that two men awaiting trial on unrelated murder cases were suspected in Davell’s...
