They came to mourn his death and celebrate his life. At Buckingham Palace, at Windsor Castle and at Sandringham, wellwishers ignored the “stay away” warnings to pay their respects. The day after the Duke of Edinburgh’s death, Britain woke up to realise that the man who had been an ever-present fixture, a steadying hand across the decades, was no longer with us. In the first full day of mourning, the military paid its tribute with a Death Gun Salute at midday, 41 rounds fired at one round a minute for 40 minutes at locations including London, Edinburgh, Belfast and Cardiff as well as the overseas territory of Gibraltar. At sea, guns were fired from Royal Navy warships saluting “one of their own”.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday called for the "worrying" developments in eastern Ukraine's Donbass region to come to an end after meeting his Ukrainian counterpart in Istanbul, adding Turkey was ready to provide any necessary support. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy held more than three hours of talks with Erdogan in Istanbul as part of a previously scheduled visit, amid tensions between Kyiv and Moscow over the conflict in Donbass. Kyiv has raised the alarm over a buildup of Russian forces near the border between Ukraine and Russia, and over a rise in violence along the line of contact separating Ukrainian troops and Russia-backed separatists in Donbass.
Federal discretionary spending is up by 8.4% compared to 2021 levels, excluding emergency funding, to $1.52 trillion, with a focus on health, education and climate. About two-thirds of the massive budget is "mandatory" spending for benefits like Social Security and Medicare. Because it is lower than former President Donald Trump's 2022 projections, it may also anger Republican defense hawks pushing for more spending.

Queen Elizabeth's husband Prince Philip, the man she once called her 'strength and stay', died on Friday (April 9) at Windsor Castle aged 99.He was known for modernizing the monarchy, and steering the British royal family through repeated crises during his service.The Duke of Edinburgh, as he was officially known, was by his wife's side throughout her 69-year reign, the longest in British history.Flags were lowered to half-mast at Buckingham Palace, and at government buildings across London, as the public began to lay flowers outside royal residences.Prime Minister Boris Johnson also paid his respects to the Queen's consort."We mourn today with Her Majesty the Queen, we offer our condolences to her and to all her family, and we give thanks as a nation and a kingdom for the extraordinary life and work of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh."Many other world leaders have also paid tribute, including U.S. President Joe Biden.Philip, a former naval officer and Greek prince, had earned a reputation for a tough, no-nonsense attitude, which earned him respect from many Britons.But he was also known for off-the-cuff remarks that sometimes caused offense. He was a favorite to newspaper editors, keen to pick up on any stray remarks at official events.Philip spent four weeks in hospital earlier this year for treatment for an infection, and to have a heart procedure, but he returned to Windsor in early March.He died just two months before his 100th birthday.

Determined action came at the end of the week from lawmakers in Annapolis after Gov. Larry Hogan vetoed police reform bills. The Republican governor vetoed legislation Friday that includes the core components of a series of police reform bills. The legislation, nearly a year in the making, is in response to the Minneapolis police in-custody death of George Floyd and the protests of thousands of people demanding more police accountability and transparency.

PROSECUTOR JERRY BLACKWELL: "You found then and do you stand by today that the manner of death for Mr. Floyd was, as you would call it, homicide?"HENNEPIN COUNTY CHIEF MEDICAL EXAMINER ANDREW BAKER: "Yes, I would still classify it as a homicide today."The medical examiner who performed the autopsy on George Floyd after his deadly arrest last year said he stood by his conclusion that the 46-year-old's death was a homicide at the hands of police.BAKER: "My opinion remains unchanged. It's what I put on the death certificate last June. That's cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint and neck compression. That was my top line then. It would stay my top line now."Dr. Andrew Baker testified on Day 10 of Derek Chauvin's murder trial that Floyd's heart stopped beating and his lungs stopped working because the former Minneapolis policeman and other officers pinned him to the ground in a way that starved his body of oxygen.DEFENSE ATTORNEY ERIC NELSON: "But you also took into consideration the heart disease, correct?"BAKER: "Yes."NELSON: "As well as the toxicology results. Agreed?" BAKER: "Yes."In cross-examination, Chauvin's attorney Eric Nelson focused on the defense's central argument: that Floyd's underlying health problems and the drugs found in his system may have led to his death.Baker said he noted Floyd's heart disease and the fentanyl and methamphetamine found in his blood on the death certificate because they may have played a role in the death, but he said they "were not direct causes."BLACKWELL: "Did you rule out 'drug overdose' as a cause of death?"FORENSIC PATHOLOGIST LINDSEY THOMAS: "Yes."Prosecutors sought to further dismantle Chauvin's central defense with testimony from Dr. Lindsey Thomas. The forensic pathologist said the sheer volume of videos of Floyd's arrest made it clear that physical signs associated with opioid overdose were not present in Floyd's death.THOMAS: "The point is that it's due to law enforcement subdual restraint and compression."

Screenshot/Twitter/WJLAA Pentagon cop accused of fatally shooting two men he “thought” were stealing a car in the parking lot of his Maryland condo complex this week has a history of whipping out guns in his building, according to video from last year that now has law enforcement scrutinizing the officer more closely.David Hall Dixon aimed a firearm at a homeless woman in the lobby of his apartment complex one evening in May 2020 and barked at her to leave, footage shows. Takoma Park Police plan to bring charges against him “for his actions in assaulting” her, WJLA reports.BREAKING: Multiple sources have confirmed this is officer David Dixon, who was just arrested for killing two people, pulling a gun on a homeless woman who wandered into his building in May 2020. @fox5dc pic.twitter.com/0TJRJjs38S— Evan Lambert (@EvanLambertTV) April 9, 2021 Dixon had reportedly told the woman to exit the building after a series of disruptions. When she did not, he returned to his apartment and brought back what appeared to be a shotgun. He pointed the weapon at her and repeated his commands to vacate the premises, and she did, wheeling a red shopping cart out with her. Dixon followed her through the doors. He did not fire the gun.Dixon, an officer with the Pentagon Force Protection Agency since 2019, has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder for allegedly killing Dominique Williams, a 32-year-old Hyattsville resident, and James Lionel Johnson, a 38-year-old District Heights resident, in the parking lot of the same building on Wednesday morning. Dixon was arrested Friday and remains in jail without bond. He has been put on administrative leave from the Pentagon Force.Relatives described the two victims as best friends. Johnson was a father of three, including an infant. His cousin Marcus Cornegay said in a press conference on Friday: “He treated everyone that crossed his path with love and respect, like they were family. We as a family are really struggling with this trying to put logic around why he was taken from us.”A family attorney, David Haynes, said Johnson and Williams were “shot and killed in cold blood, for no reason, with no justification.”This is a photo of James Johnson, 38, of District Heights. @TakomaParkPD say an off-duty Pentagon police officer, David Hall Dixon, shot Johnson Wednesday after he thought he saw him breaking into a car. He had three children. (@wusa9) pic.twitter.com/5gam6RdPDi— John Henry (@JohnHenryWUSA) April 9, 2021 Takoma Park Police said that when their officers arrived on the scene at about 5 a.m. Wednesday, Dixon approached them and said he’d seen what he “thought” was an attempted car theft. According to charging documents reported on by The Washington Post, Dixon identified himself as an off-duty Pentagon officer and told the police that he was leaving for work when he noticed a Lexus, with its headlights off, driving through the parking lot.He said he saw one of the men in the Lexus trying to break the window of another car in the parking lot earlier. He said he confronted the men in the Lexus but they “gassed it,” and attempted to run him over, prompting him to open fire.But surveillance footage showed Dixon firing as the car drove away, the charging documents say.While authorities determined that an attempted car theft had indeed taken place, they said the car with the three men inside “no longer presented an immediate threat that would have justified the use of deadly force.”Takoma Park Police Chief Antonio DeVaul said on Friday that Dixon had “no lawful or justifiable reason” for firing his service weapon: “He was a civilian who acted as a civilian, who happened to be a law enforcement officer in another jurisdiction.”DeVaul added that Dixon’s overview of events “was inconsistent with the evidence and facts in the case.”Williams and Johnson were driven to nearby St. George’s hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds in their upper backs, wounds a medical examiner said were consistent with being fired on from behind. Both died there.A third man, Michael Thomas, 36, was driving the car. Dixon faces additional charges of attempted second-degree murder for opening fire on Thomas, as well as reckless endangerment and use of a handgun in commission of a felony. Thomas has not been charged with a crime. Dixon is not alone on the Pentagon Force in drawing his service weapon while off-duty. Another officer shot a 16-year-old he alleged was robbing him the evening of March 24 in Washington, D.C. The acting director of the bureau said leaders would conduct trainings in response to both incidents “to ensure [officers] have a full understanding of their off-duty responsibilities.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
