    A Wisconsin resident who let the suspect in the Christmas Parade killings into his home following the massacre has revealed how he sat on the sofa, called his mom and 'lied about everything.' Daniel Rider said he was sitting in his living room watching the Cowboys against the Chiefs when Darrell Brooks started banging on his door, pleading for help on Sunday night. Doorbell footage shows a frantic Brooks, 39, hammering on the front door and claiming he was waiting for a Uber - just 20 minutes after he plowed into the parade leaving six dead, including an eight-year-old boy. Rider had no idea of the carnage that had just unfolded in downtown Waukesha and decided he should let the shivering man into his home, remembering a recent sermon his mother had told him about helping the homeless. 'So I was like, "Oh! This was my chance to help somebody. I'm going to warm him up and give him some food,"' Rider told CBS. He lent Brooks his jacket and made him a sandwich, and also gave Brooks his phone...

    A protester is seen being arrested in Louisville, Kentucky on August 9, 2020, after the public road ban went into effect. WHAS 11 The Louisville Metro Police Department said Sunday that protesters would no longer be allowed to march on public streets, and must stick to the sidewalks.  A police spokesperson said the restrictions were in response to increasingly "aggressive behavior" by protesters over the past week.  Protests have taken place in the Kentucky city every night for more than 70 days, in response to the police killing of Breonna Taylor in her home. A handful of people were taken into custody for disorderly conduct and obstructing the roadway Sunday night after the new restrictions went into place.

    DETROIT (AP) — A demonstration in Detroit against police brutality and racial injustice became violent as two police vehicles were damaged amid demands by one group that authorities investigate the actions of the officers. No injuries were reported from the protest Sunday night on the city’s southwest side, police Chief James Craig told reporters Monday. Protests have been held in the city and across the U.S. since the May 25 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Floyd, who was Black and handcuffed, died after a white police officer pressed his knee into Floyd's neck for several minutes even as Floyd begged for air and eventually stopped moving. Craig showed dashcam footage from the two vehicles Sunday. Footage from one showed a group of protesters converging in front of one police vehicle and at least two protesters jumping on its hood. The vehicle’s rear window was smashed and the officer driving began to accelerate because it wasn’t clear if “they were being fired upon," Craig said. The video showed at least one protester falling from the hood to the street. The...

    A New York police officer was suspended on Sunday after a video posted online appeared to show him putting a Black man in a chokehold during an arrest. The New York Police Department banned the use of chokeholds in 1993. But the death of George Floyd after a police officer knelt on his neck while detaining him in Minneapolis on May 25 has put police tactics and methods in the spotlight again. "After a swift investigation by the Internal Affairs Bureau, a police officer involved in a disturbing apparent chokehold incident in Queens has been suspended without pay," New York City Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said in a tweet Sunday. "While a full investigation is still underway, there is no question in my mind that this immediate action is necessary," Shea said.

The man was hospitalized late on Sunday, NBC News reported. On Thursday, the New York City Council overwhelmingly passed a...

    THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Dutch police arrested scores of protesters and used a water cannon Sunday after violence erupted around a demonstration in The Hague against measures put in place by the government to rein in the spread of the coronavirus. A peaceful protest turned violent when dozens of what police said were soccer fans arrived and clashed with riot police near the city’s central railway station. Police used officers on horseback and a water cannon to disperse the crowd after police had been pelted with rocks and smoke bombs. There were no immediate reports of injuries. It was unclear exactly how many people gathered Sunday at the demonstration that was initially banned by The Hague’s mayor last week. On Sunday, the mayor gave permission for a brief protest, because fewer people attended than had been predicted last week. The Hague municipality said in a statement that the soccer fans and other groups had descended on the city from around the Netherlands. “This has nothing to do with demonstrating or freedom of expression,” Mayor Johan Remkes said in...

    The Associated Press The Latest on the death in Minneapolis of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who pleaded for air as a white police officer pressed a knee on his neck: ___ WASHINGTON — Protesters started fires near the White House as tensions with police mounted during a third straight night of demonstrations held in response to the death of George Floyd at police hands in Minnesota. An hour before the 11 p.m. curfew, police fired a major barrage of tear gas stun grenades into the crowd of more than 1,000 people, largely clearing Lafayette Park across the street from the White House and scattering protesters into the street. Protesters piled up road signs and plastic barriers and lit a raging fire in the middle of H Street. Some pulled an American flag from a nearby building and threw it into the blaze. Others added branches pulled from trees. A cinder block structure, on the north side of the park, that had bathrooms and a maintenance office, was engulfed in flames. Several miles north, a separate protest broke out...
    The Associated Press The Latest on the death in Minneapolis of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who pleaded for air as a white police officer pressed a knee on his neck: ___ ATLANTA — Riot police firing volleys of tear gas dispersed hundreds of demonstrators as a curfew took hold Sunday night, scattering a crowd that had protested for hours in downtown Atlanta over the deaths of George Floyd in Minnesota and Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia. Hundreds of police, National Guard troops and other forces lined up in positions around downtown Centennial Park, a focal point of the weekend of protests. An overnight curfew took hold at 9 p.m. as some on the fringes of what was a largely peaceful afternoon protest were setting off fireworks and burning construction materials near the park. An Associated Press photographer saw police then begin firing many 40 millimeter canisters of tear gas toward the crowd. People were choking, gasping and some throwing up as they scattered, leaving only a few still in the streets. As police and National Guard troops took up...
    The Associated Press The Latest on the death in Minneapolis of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who pleaded for air as a white police officer pressed a knee on his neck: ___ WASHINGTON — Secret Service agents rushed President Donald Trump to an underground bunker Friday, as hundreds of protesters gathered outside the White House, some throwing rocks and tugging at police barricades just outside the executive mansion. That’s according to a Republican close to the White House not authorized to publicly discuss private matters and confirmed by another official. The abrupt decision by the agents underscored the rattled mood inside the White House, where the chants from Lafayette Park could be heard all weekend and Secret Service agents and law enforcement officers struggled to contain the crowds. The Friday protests, triggered by the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after he was pinned at the neck by a white Minneapolis police officer, turned violent and appeared to catch officers by surprise. It sparked one of the highest alerts on the White House complex since the...

    ATLANTA — Two police officers have been fired and three others placed on desk duty over excessive use of force during a protest arrest incident, Atlanta’s mayor said Sunday. Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said at a news conference that she and police Chief Erika Shields made the decision after reviewing body-camera footage of a Saturday night incident that first gained attention from video online and on local news. “Use of excessive force is never acceptable,” Bottoms told reporters. Shields called the footage “really shocking to watch.” The video, shown on TV as captured by local reporters, shows a group of police officers in riot gear and gas masks surround a car being driven by a man with a woman in the passenger seat. The officers pull the woman out and appear to use a stun gun on the man. They use zip-tie handcuffs on the woman on the ground. The couple did not appear to be fighting police. Reporters said the police had earlier broken glass on the car. A reporter said police also flattened the tires. Bottoms said charges...
