The St. Louis couple Mark and Patricia McCloskey were charged by a circuit attorney on Monday with unlawful use of a weapon after they pointed guns at Black Lives Matter protesters in late June. Hours after the charges were filed, Missouri's attorney general, Eric Schmitt, filed an amicus brief asking that the charges be dismissed. Schmitt cited the state's "castle doctrine," which allows Missourians to use force against intruders, as a reason the case should be thrown out.

Anti-racism protests have been taking place in Portland, Oregon, for almost two months - but in recent days they have been joined by a growing number of "moms". The "Wall of Moms" - as they have been dubbed - have been acting as a human shield between the protesters and the federal officers sent in to disperse them. They arrived wearing yellow, some carrying sunflowers, and chanting: "Feds stay clear.

Britain has agreed with the United States to remove an "anomaly" which allowed the wife of a U.S. official to claim diplomatic immunity from criminal prosecution after she was involved in a road accident in which 19-year-old Briton Harry Dunn was killed. The crash last August has caused friction between London and Washington after Britain criticised the United States for refusing to extradite Anne Sacoolas. Now the loophole that allowed Sacoolas to claim immunity has been closed.
The British Labour Party has admitted it defamed Jewish whistleblowers who spoke to the BBC Panorama program about anti-Semitism in the party under the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn. The program featured a number of Jewish whistleblowers who condemned the party's practices on anti-Semitic complaints under the direction of Corbyn, claiming that several high ranking officers in the party interfered with investigations into alleged perpetrators who were members of the party. Labour responded at the time by accusing those who participated in the program of just being “disaffected former staff” who harbored “personal and political axes to grind” and made malicious and false claims in order to damage the party.
Largely resisting the tangential, pugnacious approach he favored during his earlier appearances at the podium, Trump tried instead to rely on data to persuade the American people that his administration is “doing a good job,” in his words, combating COVID-19. At the top of his briefing, Trump unveiled a chart labeled “Case Fatality Rate” in big, bold letters. The largest bar belonged to France (17.1 percent), followed by the United Kingdom (15.3 percent), Belgium (15.3 percent), Italy (14.3 percent), Spain (10.7 percent), the European Union (10.2 percent), Canada (8 percent), Europe (7.5 percent), Sweden (7.2 percent), Germany (4.5 percent), the world as a whole (4.2 percent) — and then, at the very bottom, the United States (3.7 percent).
CHRISTOF STACHE/AFP via Getty Images China used the labor of persecuted Uighur people to make personal protective equipment (PPE) that was then exported to the US and other countries, a new New York Times report found. Many Chinese factories use a work program to recruit Uighur employees, The Times reported, which experts say is forced labor. China has detained at least one million Uighurs in detention camps, which it euphemistically bills as "re-education" camps, and keeps Uighurs under strong surveillance.
Chicago police released a video showing what they say are a group of protesters wielding black umbrellas and shields pelting officers with projectiles. Chicago police Superintendent David Brown said Monday that officers will wear full protective gear when assigned to future protests after “agitators” hijacked a protest Friday at the Christopher Columbus statue in Grant Park, injuring 49 police officers. Brown and Belmont Area Cmdr. Daniel O'Shea also urged people to seek out “both sides” after activists at Friday night's protest said this weekend that officers' actions left many in the crowd injured as well.
Amid a moment of national reckoning on racial issues and the mourning of one of the country's most revered civil rights leaders, new numbers from the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll show that American voters have become significantly more aware of racial discrimination and more sympathetic to those protesting to end it, even as the country remains deeply divided over the prevalence of bigotry and its root causes. The poll finds that voters in America are now more likely to say that people of color experience discrimination, to describe athletes kneeling in protest of racial inequality as appropriate, to view the Black Lives Matter movement as a positive force, and to support the removal of Confederate monuments in public spaces. The poll — which was conducted July 9-12, before the death of Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., the civil rights leader — found that a majority of voters, 56 percent, say American society is racist, while 40 percent disagree.
A powerful earthquake off Alaska's southern coast shook sparsely populated coastal communities late Tuesday and prompted some residents to briefly flee to higher ground because of tsunami fears. There were no immediate reports of damage in the Alaska Peninsula and the tsunami warning was canceled after the magnitude 7.8 quake offshore created a wave of a less than a foot (30 centimeters). Residents in some small towns within a hundred miles (160 kilometers) of the quake reported very strong shaking and some shaking was felt more than more than 500 miles (805 kilometers) away in the Anchorage area, said Michael West, Alaska state seismologist.

Swedish teen climate activist Greta Thunberg is pledging to donate $1.15 million she's won in prize money to groups working to fight climate change. Thunberg was selected to win the inaugural Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity from 136 nominees from 46 different countries, the foundation said in a statement. She was chosen because of the way she “has been able to mobilise younger generations for the cause of climate change and her tenacious struggle to alter a status quo that persists," said Jorge Sampaio, chair of the prize jury, in a statement. In a Twitter video posted Monday, Thunberg responded by saying the earnings would be donated: “That is more money than I can begin to imagine, but all the prize money will be donated, through my foundation, to different organisations and projects who are working to help people on the front line, affected by the climate crisis and ecological crisis.”
Rudy Giuliani has once again posted misinformation about Rep. Ilhan Omar on social media, sharing a meme that falsely claimed the congresswoman was seen at a terrorist training camp. The president's personal lawyer tweeted a debunked meme that included a photo of a woman holding a gun, along with a caption that falsely claimed the woman was Ms Omar (D—Mn). The meme spread across far-right corners of the web last year, despite the photo having been taken three years before the Somali-American congresswoman was born.
Sen. Ron Wyden told Yahoo News on Tuesday that he believes the Trump administration's crackdown on protesters in Portland is an unconstitutional and divisive effort to boost the president's sagging reelection efforts. “Trump has a political agenda here,” Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, said during an interview with Yahoo News' “Skullduggery” podcast. Portland, the largest city in Oregon, has been convulsed by protests since George Floyd, an unarmed Black man, was killed by Minneapolis police on May 25.
