- 3rd mistrial in case of ex-cop accused of killing black man
By JUSTIN JUOZAPAVICIUS, Associated Press - Saturday Jul 8, 2017
(AP) — For the third time in less than a year a jury deadlocked on Friday and forced a mistrial in the murder case of a white former Oklahoma police officer accused of killing his daughter's black boyfriend, astonishing prosecutors and frustrating the boyfriend's family.Lake's killing was among a series of fatal shootings of black people by Tulsa-area law enforcement officers in recent years.Fearing for the customers' safety, the deputies and police officer opened fire, killing him as he tried to enter the store.A jury on May 17 found white Tulsa police officer Betty Jo Shelby not guilty of first-degree manslaughter in the Sept. 16, 2016, death of Terence Crutcher, 40, shot shortly after Shelby arrived on a street to find Crutcher's SUV stopped in the middle of the road.The shooting involving Kepler was four days before a white police officer fatally shot an unarmed black teenager in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson on Aug. 9, 2014.Michael Brown's killing touched off months of protests and became a catalyst for the Black Lives Matter movement, which decries police violence against minorities and calls for greater transparency from law enforcement officials, especially in cases that involve officer-involved shootings.

- Minneapolis police chief tightens officer body camera policy
By STEVE KARNOWSKI, Associated Press - Wednesday Jul 26, 2017
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minneapolis police officers will be required to have their body cameras on when they respond to calls and make traffic stops, the acting police chief announced Wednesday, following widespread criticism that two officers involved in the fatal shooting of a 911 caller had not activated their cameras.The old policy required officers to turn on their cameras in more than a dozen situations, including for a traffic stop, search of a person or building, any contact involving criminal activity and, if possible, before the use of force.The language requiring officers to activate their cameras when dispatched is "kind of unique," said Michael White, a criminology professor at Arizona State University and a co-director of a Justice Department body camera funding assistance program who has reviewed over 100 policies from law enforcement agencies across the country.Telling officers to activate their cameras when they're dispatched is consistent with Justice Department best-practice guidelines, said Chuck Wexler, executive director for the Police Executive Research Forum.Since officers don't know what they may face when they arrive at the scene, the last thing they should worry about is turning them on, he said.Data from March released by the Minneapolis Police Department and published by television station KSTP show that officers wearing body cameras there recorded a little less than 20 minutes of footage for every eight-hour shift.
