A New York police officer's recent death has disturbingly highlighted the record number of suicides among members of the New York Police Department this year, according to the New York Times.

When detectives arrived at his sister's home to break the news, she had already suspected the worst, she told the newspaper.
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) â€” South Korean police said Thursday that they have found a suspect thought to be an infamous serial killer wanted for the slaying of nine women some 30 years ago. Senior police officer Ban Gi-soo said police have continued their investigation into the 1986-1991 slayings even after the statute of limitations expired 13 years ago in order to find the truth. Ban said the technological improvement of DNA analysis allowed authorities to extract DNA samples from evidence that wasn't possible at the time of the cases.
Key Point: Iran's interest in ballistic missiles has its origins in the 1980–88 Iran-Iraq War. Like the rest of the Iranian Armed Forces, the Iranian Air Force was crippled by postrevolution purges. Although numerically and technologically superior to the Iraqi Air Force, Iran was unable to achieve air superiority and unable to accurately strike targets deep within Iraq.
Zahra Billoo, who joined the board of the Women's March just several days ago, announced on her Twitter feed Thursday morning that she has been voted off the board.

The Women's March has not released a statement explaining the justification for her dismissal as of this writing.

To make the case for the link between terrorism and global warming, Sanders linked to a news story with a provocative headline: “Climate change will increase risk of violent conflict, researchers warn”. Dear Democrats: If you want to slow climate change, carbon pricing is a necessity. But that paper hardly offers compelling evidence that terrorism is bigger today thanks to global warming.

Raytheon's new Peregrine missile is designed for U.S. fighter jets and would likely replace the 30-year old AMRAAM missile. Peregrine is smaller than existing missiles, allowing the Air Force and other services to stuff more of them in the internal weapons bays of stealth fighter jets like the F-35. U.S. defense contractor Raytheon has pulled the curtain off a new missile designed to boost the firepower of fighter jets.

Questions are still swirling about whether former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe will be indicted on charges of lying to investigators about events just before the 2016 election. The doubts stem from Attorney General William Barr's notable public skepticism about potential obstruction of justice charges against President Donald Trump, especially after special counsel Robert Mueller concluded that there was insufficient evidence to make a case that Trump or anyone on his campaign illegally “conspired or coordinated” with Russia during the 2016 U.S. presidential race. Barr and other Trump allies repeatedly suggested that the president couldn't be guilty of obstruction or that such a case would be exceedingly difficult to prove unless there was some underlying crime — like accepting illegal help from the Russians.

Dozens of people - including six doctors and seven pharmacists - have been charged with fraud for illegally distributing more than 6 million opioid pills. Some of the pills were obtained using counterfeit prescription pads, and the stolen identities of legitimate doctors, prosecutors say. After filling the forged prescriptions - paid for in cash - the pills would be sold on the street at up to five times their actual price.
Russian police on Thursday said they had detained a Siberian shaman trekking towards Moscow on a mission to expel "demon" President Vladimir Putin, picking up a crowd of supporters on the way. Police in the eastern Siberian region of Buryatia told Interfax they had detained Alexander Gabyshev, the shaman, on a highway near Lake Baikal and would put him on a flight back to his home region where he is "wanted for committing a crime". Gabyshev's eccentric bid to walk from his home city of Yakutsk to Moscow, a distance of over 8,000 kilometres (5,000 miles), has seen a group of followers join him on the way.

Emma Lim, an 18-year-old student at McGill University in Montreal, recently launched a climate-change movement called "#NoFutureNoChildren," in which people can pledge to hold off having children until the government takes action. "I have always, always wanted to be a mom, for as long as I can remember," Lim told Insider.

Russian border patrol has detained 161 North Korean sailors for suspected poaching activity in the Sea of Japan, triggering a diplomatic conflict that is raising concerns in Moscow about the future of the Russian-North Korean security relationship. It was first reported by RIA state news agency earlier this week that Russian border patrol confronted two North Korean schooners and eleven motorboats allegedly conducting illegal fishing activities on Russia's far east coast. Border patrol detained one of the ships, reportedly prompting the other to open fire in a small skirmish that led to the injury of three Russian border patrol officials and several North Korean sailors.
Early on, Polanco was taught about the importance of diversity and inclusion and embracing the flaws that make you feel most insecure. In fact, those same vulnerabilities are the things the actress is most prideful of now. "We lean towards not caring what people say, but we have stages in our lives when we do," Polanco told AOL. For Polanco, the biggest moments of 'insecurity' she faced were during her teenage years and after giving birth to her two children.
When Houston immigration activist Roland Gramajo Reyes invited U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to a public meeting for people worried about being arrested due to their immigration status, he didn't think he'd end up behind bars. Gramajo's longtime advocacy on behalf of Houston's immigrant and Latino communities, family, attorney, and allies said, make them seriously doubt that the timing of his apprehension was an accident. Now, Gramajo, 40, is caught in a tug-of-war between law enforcement agencies seeking to either deport him after 25 cumulative years in the United States, or to first incarcerate him for improper entry into the United States, a charge that could land him in prison.
The Saudi-led coalition said it intercepted and destroyed an explosives-laden boat launched from Yemen by the Iran-aligned Houthi group on Thursday, an incident that could further increase regional tensions after a weekend attack on Saudi oil installations. "The coalition's naval forces detected an attempt by the terrorist Houthi militia backed by Iran to carry out an imminent act of aggression and terrorism south of the Red Sea using an unmanned, rigged boat ... launched from Hodeidah province," coalition spokesman Colonel Turki al-Malki said in a statement. There was no immediate confirmation by the Houthi movement, which had claimed responsibility for the Sept. 14 attacks on Saudi oil facilities.

A crewman injured in the fire that killed 34 people aboard the dive boat Conception off Southern California has sued the boat owner and the company that chartered the vessel. Ryan Sims filed the lawsuit last week in Ventura County Superior Court, saying the Conception dive boat was unseaworthy and was operated in an unsafe manner. Attorney Kurt Arnold says Sims was the steward and was sleeping on the upper deck of the boat when he was awakened by loud noises the morning of Sept. 2 and found the vessel on fire as it was anchored off Santa Cruz Island.
Local residents are "preparing for the worst" as fans of the viral Storm Area 51 Facebook event descend on a town near the secretive military base. The event could become a disaster as people struggle with the difficult conditions in Nevada without proper preparation, they have warned.
