Jackson, Mississippi -- Edgar Ray Killen was a 1960's Ku Klux Klan leader. Killen was 80 when a Neshoba County jury of nine white people and three black people convicted him of three counts of manslaughter on June 21, 2005. Prosecutors said Killen masterminded the slayings. He then went elsewhere so he would have an alibi. His conviction came 41 years to the day after James Chaney, Michael Schwerner and Andrew Goodman were ambushed and killed by Klansmen. Killen was serving three consecutive 20-year terms for manslaughter when he died at 9 p.m. Thursday. He died inside the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman. He was 92 years old.
Killen was long a suspect in the 1964 slayings. Killen and Nineteen other men were indicted on federal charges in 1967. Seven were convicted of violating the victims' civil rights. None served more than six years. FBI files and court transcripts from the 1967 federal conspiracy trial say Killen did most of the planning in the ambush killings of the civil rights workers. Killen's federal case ended with a hung jury after one juror said she couldn't convict a preacher.
Killen was the only person ever to face state murder charges. Witnesses testified in the 2005 state trial that on June 21, 1964, Killen went to Meridian to round up carloads of Klansmen to ambush Schwerner, Chaney and Goodman. He told some of the Klan members to bring plastic or rubber gloves. Witnesses said Killen then went to a Philadelphia funeral home as an alibi while the fatal attack occurred. However, it was the lesser charge of manslaughter that put him in state prison. Killen wouldn't say much about the killings during a 2014 interview with media sources inside the penitentiary. He said he remained a segregationist who did not believe in racial equality. However, he contended he harbored no ill will toward black people.
Killen's life spanned a period in this country where members of the Ku Klux Klan were able to take other people's lives with impunity. They took many black lives with impunity. Investigators searching for the three bodies found bodies of other black men who had been killed in Mississippi. The bodies included two black men who were brutalized before being dumped in the Mississippi River. The slayings were part of a larger problem of violence in Mississippi against black people and others who challenged the segregationist status quo. The members of the Klan were members of the police department; the sheriff's department; and the highway patrol.

Frederickson, WA -- Pierce County sheriff’s Deputy Daniel McCartney, 34, was fatally shot Sunday. He was shot while responding to a 911 call near Frederickson. Sheriff Paul Pastor said McCartney “ran toward trouble; he ran to protect somebody.” McCartney was shot after deputies were called about 11:25 p.m. to a home in the 5100 block of 200th Street East for a home invasion. 911 dispatchers said they could hear screaming and the sounds of a scuffle during the call. Troyer said McCartney arrived six minutes later and gave chase as the burglars ran. Three minutes later, shots rang out. Investigators said they believe McCartney was able to fire at the burglars.
One suspect, Henry Michael Carden, 35 (pictured below, center) was found dead at the shooting scene. The Medical Examiner confirmed his identity Monday night. Carden was found dead near the home next to a handgun. Carden’s prior record was not that extensive. He was convicted in 2006 for burglary and second-degree assault. Court records of the incident state that Carden nearly severed a man’s arm with a sword. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four years in prison.
A second suspect is in custody. It turns out that the suspect was in jail much of the day yesterday as a massive manhunt was underway for the deputy’s killer. Frank William Pawul, 32 (pictured below, center) was arrested on unrelated warrants Monday morning and booked into the Pierce County Jail while the manhunt continued. Pawul’s connection to the shooting was not initially recognized. A Washington State Patrol trooper spotted Pawul at 8:10 a.m., on Monday morning. This was about 10 blocks from the crime scene of the Sunday night shooting that killed McCartney. Pawul gave a false name at first. He was not immediately recognized as a suspect in the shooting. He had three active warrants for his arrest. One warrant was from Mason County.
Pawul has a prior record of felony convictions in Pierce County. The offenses range from identity theft to residential burglary and drug possession. He has a felony conviction for second-degree theft in 2007. Court records indicate Pawul was charged in March (2017) in Mason County with drug possession and third-degree theft. Pawul failed to appear for a scheduled hearing. The case generated a bench warrant in June. He had lower-level encounters with law enforcement, including various traffic violations.
Pawul pleaded guilty to three counts of second-degree identity theft In 2014. He received a 14-month prison sentence. He completed his prison stint and was released from state community supervision in June 2016. Pawul will be arraigned Tuesday in Superior Court on charges of first-degree murder.

Fort Lauderdale, FL -- Jean Pedro Pierre, 42, was fatally shot after attacking a Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy at a Lauderdale Lakes apartment complex. Cellphone video footage was taken from an apartment complex balcony Wednesday, December 6, 2017. The video shows Pierre dragging Deputy Sean Youngward by his left leg. Youngward was responding to a report of a disturbance at Sunset Hills Condominium, 3610 NW 21st St. Neighbors are heard urging Pierre to let the deputy go. Youngward calls for back-up after his baton and Taser failed to subdue Pierre.
Pierre continues to drag the deputy and kick him. One man yells: “Let it go, bro. They’re gonna shoot you, man.” Soon after, someone else is heard saying: “Think smart, bro.” Deputy Steven Briggs arrives on the scene. Briggs is standing a few feet away.
Pierre lets go of Youngward. He charges at Briggs. Someone in the video screams: “Tase him, tase him; don’t shoot him.” Briggs then fires his gun three times. Pierre then is seen falling flat on the ground.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that “Youngward tried to stop the violent attack by deploying his Taser and using his ASP (extending baton). Neither form of less-lethal force stopped Pierre from assaulting him.” BSO added: “[Deputy] Briggs ordered Pierre to stop. Instead, Pierre charged at [Deputy] Briggs and several shots were fired. Pierre was not armed.” Pierre was taken to Broward Health Medical Center. He later died. Both deputies were placed on administrative leave.

Not Enough ...!
Minneapolis, MN -- Justine Damond's maiden name was Ruszczyk. However, the native Australian and life coach had already started using her fiance's last name. Minneapolis Police Officer Mohamed Noor fatally shot Justine Damond, 40, on July 15, 2017. Noor shot Justine after she called police to report a possible sexual assault near her house. Noor's partner, Officer Matthew Harrity, told investigators he was "startled by a loud sound" just before Damond approached the driver's side window of the police SUV. Harrity said Noor then fired his weapon from the passenger seat, hitting Damond.
Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman told activists County attorneys do not yet have enough evidence to file charges against Noor. "I've got to have the evidence, and I don't have it yet." Freeman said this to activists after they asked why his office had not yet announced charges against Noor. Video of this exchange was uploaded to Facebook. Freeman said in the video: "And let me just say, it's not my fault. If it isn't my fault, who didn't do their jobs? ... Investigators — and they don't work for me. And they haven't done their job." It was not clear if Freeman knew he was being recorded.
Noor has declined to speak with investigators. Minneapolis Police Department spokesman Scott Seroka said he is still on paid administrative leave.
