    The St. Louis Circuit Attorney's Office has accused the police department of a 'serious breach of trust', saying two officers lied about an attempted carjacking of their marked police car at gunpoint. On March 19, two St. Louis (Missouri) Police Department officers, who were not identified, claimed a man tried to carjack them in their police car. The officers had responded to reported gunshots near South Tucker Boulevard and Chouteau Avenue around 3am. They said a man stepped in front of their car as they were moving, before pointing a gun through the passenger window. They also claimed he ran off without taking the car after realizing officers were inside. He was apprehended about a block away in a restaurant parking lot.  But the Circuit Attorney's Office is now saying that the man, Allen Robinson, 27, was simply crossing the street and never raised a weapon at the officers. Robinson reportedly has a rap sheet with domestic violence and first-degree property damage convictions in the local area.  The CA did not explain why the officers would lie, but said one of...

    Top House Republicans, including Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, are backing a climate policy framework outlined by the American Conservation Coalition, a conservative youth climate group. It’s the first time in recent years that Republican lawmakers have lent their support for a comprehensive climate strategy. The ACC is hoping its American Climate Contract will allow GOP lawmakers, who before the pandemic had just begun to unveil a series of low-carbon policies, to contextualize those efforts and root them in climate-focused messaging. “Prior to this, the conversation continued to be so defined by the Green New Deal being the benchmark, and I think this is the next step,” said Quill Robinson, the ACC’s government affairs director. The framework takes the discussions beyond whether, or not climate change exists or if people support the liberal Green New Deal, Robinson told the Washington Examiner. “This is a climate plan that you have the most powerful Republicans in the House supporting,” he added. In total, 10 top GOP lawmakers are backing the group’s American Climate Contract, the coalition announced Monday. In addition to McCarthy, its...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — “The Singing Surgeon” will wrap up residency at Mayo Clinic this week. Dr. Elvis Francois, with Dr. William Robinson on piano, said thanks and goodbye to the Med City Wednesday night. The orthopedic surgery residents performed a free live concert at Forager Brewery in Rochester. Dr. Francois and Dr. Robinson collaborated during their surgery residency at Mayo Clinic, going viral by offering uplifting songs online. “You start to realize that surgery and medication can only go so far, and music really heals and touches people in ways medicine can’t,” Francois said.

    By Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - An influential foundation focused on preparation and response to epidemics that is backing nine potential coronavirus vaccines has identified manufacturers with capacity to produce four billion doses a year, the group's top manufacturing expert told Reuters. The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovation (CEPI)plans to have two or three manufacturing plants for each vaccine, James Robinson, a longtime biopharma executive leading CEPI'S vast manufacturing push, said in an interview. "Right now, we know we can do the two billion doses that we have as our kind of our minimum target" by the end of 2021, he said. The group is planning for eight to 10 regional distribution sites "so that we don't have to make everything centrally and try and ship it around the world," he said. Even with no existing approved vaccines, CEPI is already getting manufacturing and supply chains lined up in a quest to ensure coronavirus vaccines are distributed equitably around the globe. The Oslo, Norway-based group is backed by 14 governments, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Britain's Wellcome Trust....

The official in charge of Maryland’s jobless benefits program said states that circumvented the normal claims process to assist newly-unemployed workers ended up giving money to people who weren’t entitled to it. During a briefing for the legislature’s COVID-19 Workgroup on Wednesday, Labor Secretary Tiffany P. Robinson rebuffed suggestions that Maryland copy a Vermont program that gives $1,200 payments to people whose benefits claims aren’t resolved within two weeks of being filed. In announcing the program in April, Green Mountain State Gov. Phil Scott (R) said he wanted to help newly-jobless residents pay their bills while requests for benefits worked their way through the system. Del. Vaughn Stewart (D-Montgomery) launched a petition drive on Tuesday, calling on Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr. (R) to follow Scott’s lead. Maryland has been hit with a wave of unemployment claims — more than half a million — due to the collapse of the economy but, like other states, has struggled to...
    ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland’s labor department had a backlog of more than 34,000 pending unemployment claims as of last week, but the department secretary told lawmakers Wednesday the agency is making progress processing claims. Tiffany Robinson’s department has struggled after being inundated with a historic number of claims in the last three months due to the impact of the coronavirus on businesses. But she said the department has made progress by reaching out to people to try to resolve issues that have caused delays in receiving benefits. “We have effectively resolved and/or contacted and are in the process of resolving almost 10,000 claimants’ issues from that process alone,” she told lawmakers. As lawmakers pointed out the department needs to be prepared to do better in the event of a second wave of the virus, Robinson said she believes the department will be ready. “We are increasing staff,” Robinson told a joint panel of lawmakers who meet regularly to discuss problems relating to the coronavirus. “We have increased our technology and our communications and every single day we are working...
    Juneteenth commemorates when the last enslaved African Americans learned they were free 155 years ago. Now, with support growing for the racial justice movement, 2020 may be remembered as the year the holiday reached a new level of recognition. While the Emancipation Proclamation freed slaves in the South in 1863, it wasn’t enforced in many places until after the end of the Civil War two years later. Confederate soldiers surrendered in April 1865, but word didn’t reach the last enslaved black people until June 19, when Union soldiers brought the news of freedom to Galveston, Texas. Celebrations have typically included parades, barbecues, concerts and readings of the Emancipation Proclamation. But after massive demonstrations over George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police, there has been a seismic shift to further elevate black voices. That desire is being felt as states and cities move to make Juneteenth an official paid holiday.

    CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — A man who intentionally rammed a stolen pickup truck into the gates of a naval air station in Texas, prompting a lockdown last year, has been sentenced to nearly three years in federal prison, prosecutors said. Brian Dale Robinson pleaded guilty in November to destruction of U.S. government property and possession of a stolen firearm. He was sentenced Tuesday to 33 months in prison and ordered to pay more than $12,000 in restitution to Naval Air Station-Corpus Christi, prosecutors said. Robinson, of Beeville, Texas, told authorities that he was suicidal, authorities said. Prosecutors said Robinson had a gun when he was arrested in October at the base but he dropped it, and no one was hurt. Last month, a gunman opened fire at the Corpus Christi station, wounding a sailor before the gunman was fatally shot by security personnel. The FBI has said that shooting was terrorism-related but few details have been released. Copyright © 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
