1. OHIO SCHOOL SHOOTER
Back behind bars: T.J. Lane, a remorseless killer who escaped from an Ohio prison where he was serving three life sentences for a school shooting, has been captured. For six long hours, police scoured neighborhoods on the north end of Lima, asking residents to lock their doors and stay inside. They brought in extra officers and provided patrols to the families of Lane’s victims. In the end, he was found 100 yards away outside a church, the prison warden said. He didn’t say anything nor put up a fight, authorities said.
2. MICHAEL BROWN
Helpful, or not?: The new video in the Michael Brown shooting could it be a “game changer” in the way a grand jury handles the controversial case, legal experts say. First of all, it shows witnesses who are white and don’t live in Ferguson, Missouri. Most of the grand jury is white and may better relate to them. Second, it shows their reactions shortly after the shooting. And third, their observations echo other witness descriptions. Still, the new video doesn’t show the shooting, is just part of a vast amount of other evidence and the witnesses didn’t see how it all started. It could take months for the grand jury to reach a decision on charges.
Numbers game: ISIS is a lot bigger than we first thought. A new assessment says the terror group “can muster between 20,000 and 31,500 fighters across Iraq and Syria,” a CIA spokesman said yesterday. Analysts and U.S. officials initially estimated there were as many as 10,000 fighters, including those who were freed from prisons by ISIS, and Sunni loyalists who have joined the fight as the group advanced across Iraq. The news came a day after President Barack Obama laid out his plan to “dismantle and ultimately destroy” ISIS, including authorizing airstrikes.
