1. CHOKEHOLD DEATH
Growing protests: Marchers with signs in Dallas, Boston, Chicago and Manhattan, screamed for justice. And not only for one African-American man, Eric Garner, who died after a white police officer wrested him to the ground with a chokehold. The grand jury decision not to prosecute Officer Daniel Pantaleo may have unleashed the dam burst of protests, but the anger of a multitude marching through in the dark has encompassed more than Garner’s death in Staten Island. It has energized those who believe police treat black lives like they don’t matter.
2. SUB SHOWER CAMS
Underwater, undercover: It was certainly creepy, an invasion of privacy and possibly criminal. U.S. Navy investigators are looking into who secretly filmed female officers aboard the USS Wyoming while they were showering and changing clothes in the submarine’s unisex bathrooms. An incident report filed with the Navy last month alleges at least three female officers were videotaped at various times over a year long period. The recordings might then have been distributed to some members of the crew. The Navy wouldn’t elaborate on the specifics of the case since the investigation is ongoing.
3. UAE MALL KILLING ARREST
Being questioned: An arrest has been made in the fatal stabbing of a U.S. teacher in a bathroom at a mall in United Arab Emirates. The woman is only identified as a 30-something UAE national, according to police. The woman was arrested less than 24 hours after the attack. She is being interrogated by Emirati authorities and the investigation into the incident is ongoing, a diplomatic source told CNN. Police said a veiled woman stabbed 47-year-old American schoolteacher Ibolya Ryan during a fight in a restroom at the high-end Boutik Mall on Monday. Police believe Ryan did not know her attacker.
