Chicago's top cop retiring after turbulent 3-plus years

Nov 20, 2019

CHICAGO — Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson announced Thursday that he's retiring after more than three years as the city's top cop, a post he took over during one of the most violent chapters in the city's history and amid public outcry over the release of a video showing an officer shooting a black teen 16 times. During a news conference in which Johnson announced his retirement, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said he'd agreed to serve through the end of the year. A successor hasn't yet been named. "These stars can sometimes feel like you're carrying the weight of the world,"...

The Latest: Malaysia to free Cambodian opposition activists

Nov 20, 2019

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — The Latest on the attempted return of opposition politicians to Cambodia (all times local): 6:15 p.m. A Malaysian rights commissioner says the government will release senior Cambodian opposition official Mu Sochua and two other activists.

3rd-party bid? Gabbard's denials don't ease Democrats' fears

Nov 20, 2019

No matter how many times Tulsi Gabbard says she's staying a Democrat, she keeps making her party nervous. Her fondness for conservative media venues like Tucker Carlson's Fox News show and The Wall Street Journal's opinion page has led some Democrats to fear she plans an independent presidential bid after her longshot attempt at the Democratic presidential nomination eventually ends. Gabbard has repeatedly said that's not true, most recently Wednesday on ABC's "The View." It's unclear she could qualify for the Green Party nomination or pull a significant share of voters if she did run. That hasn't calmed Democrats having...

China sentences 3 in fentanyl trafficking case after US tip

Nov 20, 2019

XINGTAI, China — A Chinese court sentenced three fentanyl traffickers Thursday in a case that was a culmination of a rare collaboration between Chinese and U.S. law enforcement to crack down on global networks that manufacture and distribute lethal synthetic opioids. Liu Yong was sentenced to death with a two-year reprieve, while Jiang Juhua and Wang Fengxi were sentenced to life in prison. Six other members of the operation got lesser sentences. Working off a 2017 tip from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Chinese police busted a drug ring based in the northern Chinese city of Xingtai that shipped...

Congress approves bill expanding animal cruelty law

Nov 20, 2019

WASHINGTON — Congress has passed a bill making certain types of animal cruelty a federal felony. The bill would expand a 2010 law that made creation or distribution of so-called "animal crushing" videos illegal. The new bill would make the underlying acts of cruelty a federal crime. The Senate unanimously passed the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act on Tuesday, two weeks after the House passed it on a voice vote. Florida Reps. Ted Deutch and Vern Buchanan sponsored the bill. Deutch, a Democrat, said it "sends a clear message that our society does not accept cruelty against animals" and...
