1 killed and 2 wounded:

A Coast Guard member shot two colleagues at a Cape Cod condo complex early Thursday, lit a car on fire to hamper police, planted fake bombs and then opened fire on officers.

Less-lethal:

Ferguson, Mo., is seriously considering these in the wake of the death of Michael Brown. There are a lot of issues here.

Booby-Trapped Drug Bust:

Multiple agencies took part in the raid, and in the middle of it, they stumbled on something up a tree rigged with a trip wire.

“This one apparently was designed to work off a mousetrap and a shotgun shell, so if someone tripped it they could be shot,” said Nevada County Sheriff Keith Royal.

Officer shot, returns fire and wounds shooter:

Bay City Public Safety Officer Brandon Murphy, who sustained a gunshot wound fired by a burglary suspect, was discharged from McLaren Bay Region hospital this afternoon and is expected to make a full recovery.

The suspect responded to Murphy’s commands by pulling a gun and shooting him in the left thigh, Cecchini said. Murphy returned fire, his bullets striking the young Bay County male several times. Both men were taken to McLaren Bay Region hospital for treatment.

Activist learns from participating in training

“At what point did you actually see the knife?” KHOU 11 News Reporter Alice Barr asked. Quanell answered, “To be honest with you, I never saw the knife. I never saw the knife, but I saw him come out of his pocket with something like this. If he would have pulled a lollypop out of his pocket, the same way he just did, I still would have used force to stop him and then somebody could have said well all he had was a lollipop, but you don’t know when it’s happening so fast like that.”

It’s a shifting perspective from one of Houston’s loudest voices, thinking deeply about what to say next.
