    The sweet, smoky smell of incense wafted toward a crowd of hundreds outside Monterey Park City Hall on Tuesday night, just a few blocks from the dance studio where 11 people were killed in one of three mass shootings in California since last week. Gazing out at a sea of candle-lit faces, Monterey Park Mayor Pro Tem Jose Sanchez paid homage to the dead and the community he represents. “They lost their lives in a small, quiet, beautiful, diverse and familial town that we call home,” he said. Monterey Park is a small enough town that Sanchez, who will assume the role of mayor on Wednesday, also works as a high school teacher in the neighboring community of Alhambra. “Today was not a day of instruction in my classroom, but a day of remembrance,” he said. “My classroom of 36 students was not a room of work, but a shrine of hope.” A few people stood in front of him, holding up a massive white banner with messages from Alhambra students scrawled on small purple hearts, blue doves and red...

    Community members rally on 26th St. after the body camera footage of Chicago police killing Adam Toledo was released, April 15, 2021. An announcement from Cook County's top prosecutor that no charges would be filed against officers involved in the shooting deaths of Adam Toledo and Anthony Alvarez sent shockwaves through Chicago communities. The city is still grieving the losses of 13-year-old Adam Toledo and 22-year-old Anthony Alvarez, both shot by Chicago police officers two days apart in 2021. Both ran from police officers and both were holding guns at points in their respective chases, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx said during a news conference on Tuesday. Toledo, who police dubbed an "armed offender" in a preliminary statement, was shot and killed when Officer Eric Stillman couldn't confirm that the child had in fact followed his command to drop his gun. Alvarez slipped and fell during his police chase, which Officer Evan Solano allegedly interpreted as crouching to ambush the officer, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    Daunte Wright, the black man shot dead by a white police officer in Minneapolis, has been accused of being involved in two separate shooting incidents before he was killed. The new allegations against the 20-year-old black man have emerged just two months after he was fatally shot by Brooklyn Center cop Kim Potter during an April traffic stop.  Potter, who resigned days after the shooting and is charged with second-degree manslaughter, allegedly mixed up her Taser and her handgun when she opened fire on Wright.  In the days after he was killed, it was revealed that Wright had a warrant out for his arrest at the time and had previously appeared in court for attempted aggravated robbery charges after he allegedly choked and held a woman at gunpoint for $820 in 2019.

    Many things stopped or dramatically slowed in the United States starting in March 2020. Gun deaths were not among them. In fact, 2020 set a 20-year high for gun violence. What stopped—for a while—were the kind of attention-grabbing mass shootings that make headlines, usually because they affect white people in public places for reasons other than domestic violence. The “it could happen to me” shootings, where the “me” in question is writing the headlines. That kind of mass shooting returned in March 2021, starting with the Atlanta spa shootings—which, while six of the eight people killed were Asian women, were in businesses where more customers (white ones) could have been killed—then moving to the Boulder, Colorado, supermarket shooting that killed 10 people, and most recently to the eight people killed in an Indianapolis FedEx facility. But while those have made the headlines, they’re far from the sum total of gun violence—or even of mass shootings—in the U.S. during this time. And none of it has been enough to shift Republican lawmakers to be willing to vote for even the most modest and popular gun...
    (CNN)Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Joe Biden's chief medical adviser, acknowledged Sunday that gun violence in the US is a public health emergency."Myself, as public health person, I think you can't run away from that. When you see people getting killed, in this last month it's just been horrifying what's happened. How can you say that's not a public health issue?" he told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union" when asked if gun violence was a public health emergency.Fauci's comments come after a rash of mass shootings in the past month. The US has suffered at least 45 mass shootings since March 16, when eight people were killed at three Atlanta-area spas, according to CNN reporting and an analysis of data from the Gun Violence Archive (GVA), local media and police reports. CNN considers an incident to be a mass shooting if four or more people, excluding the gunman, are wounded or killed by gunfire.This is a breaking story and will be updated.

    KENOSHA, Wis. – Prosecutors on Thursday charged a 17-year-old from Illinois in the fatal shooting of two protesters and the wounding of a third in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a night of unrest following the weekend police shooting of Jacob Blake. Kyle Rittenhouse faces five felony charges that include first-degree intentional homicide and first-degree reckless homicide, and a misdemeanor charge for possession of a dangerous weapon by a minor. Rittenhouse, a white teen who was armed with a semi-automatic rifle as he walked the streets with other armed civilians amid protests this week, would face a mandatory life sentence if convicted of first-degree intentional homicide.

    A new report from the American Civil Liberties Union reveals that even though Americans have spent most of 2020 inside their homes social distancing because of the coronavirus pandemic, fatal police shootings not only haven't stopped, they haven't appeared to slow down either. As of June 30, law enforcement officers had shot and killed 511 people. Between 2015 and 2019, the average number of 19.4 fatal police shootings occurred in the country per week over the first half of the year. This number didn’t change for 2020, despite much of the country being closed down in March, April and May. “The findings of this report show that police violence in our country is not situational, but rather endemic to our country’s policing institution. Despite a once in a lifetime public health crisis that has upended societal norms and caused a decrease in physical interaction, police still manage to kill people at the same rate as before the outbreak of COVID-19,” Paige Fernandez, policing policy advisor at the ACLU, said in a release.   While the pandemic has wreaked havoc...

    Cops released surveillance images of a man who they believe may be connected to a pair of related Brooklyn shootings that killed one person and wounded five others last week. Kishawn Cameron, 30, was inside a 2019 Toyota Sequoia at Classon Avenue and Lincoln Place in Crown Heights early Wednesday when an unknown suspect, driving a white Jeep Wrangler, pulled beside the car and opened fire, striking him in the torso.

    Another violent weekend was recorded in Chicago last weekend, resulting in 15 fatalities and 59 injuries, a report said.

    A new video from documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz uses statistics reported by The Washington Post and a study from two universities to suggest that police brutality is not about race. Horowitz begins the video by explaining that statistics show more armed and unarmed white people are killed by police each year than any other race. “The protests that have convulsed our nation are based on the premise that the police are racist writ large and that they target black people for death. But the statistics don’t support that conclusion,” Horowitz says. “In fact, the data shows the exact opposite. According to The Washington Post and a new joint study by Michigan State University and the University of Maryland, which tracked every police shooting in every precinct across the country, it found that more white people are killed by police, both armed and unarmed, and controlling for crime rates, white people are disproportionately killed by officers. In fact, when there is a police shooting, black citizens are more likely to have been shot by black officers,” he adds. His video...
