As gun violence continues to plague Chicago, President Donald Trump has announced that federal agents will be deployed to the city to “help drive down violent crime. But while some community leaders say they welcome any attempts to make their city safer, other activists worry that the presence of federal law enforcement will only bring more chaos during a time of already great stresses. This deployment seems very cursory and not very sustainable,” Cinaiya Stubbs, the Executive Director of Chicago Youth Programs tells TIME.
AP Photo Republican Rep. Ted Yoho on Saturday resigned from the board of the Christian anti-poverty organization Bread for the World days after he verbally attacked Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The non-profit announced that it "sought [Yoho's] resignation" after determining that his attack on Ocasio-Cortez didn't reflect "the values of respect and compassion that Jesus calls on us to exhibit every day." Yoho approached Ocasio-Cortez on the steps of the Capitol building on Monday and called her "disgusting" and "out of [her] freaking mind," the congresswoman said.
China's foreign ministry complained Saturday that American law enforcement officials improperly entered its consulate in Houston, which was ordered to close in an escalating diplomatic feud. U.S.-Chinese relations have plunged to their lowest level in decades amid conflicts over trade, technology, Hong Kong, spying accusations and complaints of abuses against Chinese Muslims. The Trump administration ordered the Houston consulate closed this week, saying Chinese agents tried to steal medical and other research in Texas.
As COVID-19 cases rise in most states, the prospect of in-person learning this fall at the country's major school districts is becoming increasingly remote. As back-to-school season approaches, it's highly likely the majority of big districts will start learning remotely while they work out plans for socially distant reopenings, said Annette Anderson, deputy director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Safe and Healthy Schools. The biggest factor: whether the community where the school is located is seeing infection rates decrease, said Kristi Wilson, superintendent of the Buckeye Elementary School District in Arizona, who is president of the American Association of School Administrators.
More than 40 countries accused North Korea on Friday of illicitly breaching a United Nations cap on refined petroleum imports and called for an immediate halt to deliveries until the end of the year, according to a complaint seen by Reuters. The 15-member U.N. Security Council imposed an annual cap of 500,000 barrels in December 2017 in a bid to cut off fuel for North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. But in a complaint to the U.N. Security Council North Korea sanctions committee, 43 countries - including the United States, Britain and France - said they estimated that in the first five months of this year Pyongyang had imported more than 1.6 million barrels of refined ...
Three separate storm systems are bearing down on the United States and Caribbean this weekend. The tropical threats include Hurricane Douglas in the Pacific Ocean, which is barreling toward Hawaii; Tropical Storm Hanna in the Gulf of Mexico, which will make landfall on the Texas coast on Saturday; and Tropical Storm Gonzalo in the Atlantic, which will impact the Windward Islands. Douglas was a powerful Category 4 hurricane Friday morning with maximum sustained winds of 130 mph while moving west-northwest at 18 mph. The storm's center was located about 1,000 miles east-southeast of Hilo on the Island of Hawaiʻi.
The manner in which Arotile was said to have died—from the impact of a reversing car—raised suspicion across Nigeria that she was murdered. The country's leading activists and politicians, including the outspoken former senator Shehu Sani, joined her family in immediately demanding an inquiry into the pilot's death. The NAF quickly responded by announcing a preliminary investigation into the tragedy.
A Texas man died after he was hospitalized for coronavirus after he was infected by his granddaughter after she attended a party. Dr. Joseph Chang, chief medical officer at Parkland Hospital in Dallas, Texas, told WFAA that the "20-something" girl visited her 80-year-old grandparents after going to a party with her friends. The girl wasn't showing symptoms, but all three of the family members were taken into the hospital's intensive care unit, Chang told the outlet.
Patricia McCloskey's handgun was inoperable when she brandished it to ward off demonstrators who had congregated on her front lawn, but a St. Louis prosecutor ordered crime lab technicians to reassemble the gun in working order and then attested that it was “readily capable of lethal use” in charging documents filed against McCloskey. McCloskey has stated that the handgun she used was inoperable, which under Missouri law would exonerate her from the charge of unlawful use of a weapon. However, assistant circuit attorney Chris Hinckley wrote that the gun was “readily capable of lethal use” when charging McCloskey on Monday, a St. Louis NBC affiliate reported.
Donald Trump was allegedly furious of Secretary of Defence Mark Esper's decision to ban the Confederate flag from being flown on US military bases, according to anonymous sources who claim knowledge of his reaction. The sources spoke to CNN and said the president — who has not publicly denounced the use of Confederate flags — said Mr Trump was angered by Mr Esper's move. Asked about whether he thought the flag was an offensive symbol during a Fox News interview last Sunday, Mr Trump defended its use as a symbol for southern pride.

The Minneapolis City Council voted Friday to shift police media duties from the Police Department to city staff in what one council member called a move to improve trust, amid calls for changes in policing after George Floyd's death. The shift in media duties won't affect the city's bottom line, but was seen as emblematic of a struggle over the future of policing in Minneapolis, where a majority of council members favor replacing the current department with a different kind of public safety agency.
A major DNA study has shed new light on the fate of millions of Africans who were traded as slaves to the Americas between the 16th and 19th centuries. More than 50,000 people took part in the study, which was able to identify more details of the "genetic impact" the trade has had on present-day populations in the Americas. More than 12.5m Africans were traded between 1515 and the mid-19th Century.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un declared an emergency and imposed a lockdown in the border city of Kaesong after the country reported its first suspected coronavirus case, state media said Sunday, adding that a person who defected three years ago to South Korea returned last week and exhibited COVID-19 symptoms after "illegally crossing the demarcation line." Pyongyang shut its borders and put thousands of people in isolation six months ago when the coronavirus pandemic began, but Kim's regime has not acknowledged any coronavirus cases during that span, a feat analysts say was always unlikely.
Veteran Democratic strategist James Carville doubled down on his prediction on Friday that President Trump may yet abandon his run for reelection.
Meghan Markle believes her father Thomas “never sought out” the tabloid infamy that beset him. I really believe that he's the victim, and now I feel sad because he's been fully corrupted,” she reportedly told a friend. Meghan is also said to have been “devastated” when she discovered her father had helped stage paparazzi-style photographs before her wedding to Prince Harry, and was “desperate to get him to London, where he would be protected from the press by palace escorts and protection officers.
Black Americans did the same, but some had one addendum to their shopping list: a firearm. Since the beginning of the pandemic, there has been growing interest among African Americans in arming themselves, as evidenced by increased membership in Black gun owner organizations. Sensationalized stereotypes about Black Americans and guns, however, are also being used by critics of the anti-racism protests to justify a security crackdown in urban areas, many with large Black communities.
A dark stain Mondainé and other black leaders want to shift the focus of protests in Portland back to one of the enduring legacies of Oregon's racist past – reform of a police department with a long history of violence against the supposedly liberal city's relatively small black population, and which has seen a sharp rise in the killing of African American men since Trump came to power. African Americans make up just 6% of Portland's 650,000 residents but accounted for 30% of shootings by police over the past three years. Black people were also several times more times likely to be arrested or stopped.
