    Roving, cop-hating mobs erupted in violence, taunts and gunfire in Brooklyn overnight into Sunday, leaving three officers with minor injuries. At least some of the injuries were caused by “air mail,” objects thrown down at cops from rooftops, police at the scene in Bedford-Stuyvesant told The Post. By early Sunday, 11 people had been arrested on charges of disorderly conduct. The violence came after a series of water dousing attacks on NYPD officers throughout the city this summer.

    U.S. Sen. Rand Paul underwent lung surgery in a procedure he says stems from injuries suffered when a neighbor tackled him outside his Kentucky home in 2017. The Republican lawmaker and former presidential candidate tweeted Monday that part of his lung damaged in the assault was removed during the weekend surgery in Tennessee. The senator is continuing his recovery at home, a Paul spokeswoman said. "I will have to limit my August activities," the 56-year-old Paul said in the tweet, adding that he "should" be able to return to the Senate in September. "Sen. Paul will need to recover from...

    SEATTLE — In the days after the first crash of Boeing’s 737 Max, engineers at the Federal Aviation Administration came to a troubling realization: They didn’t fully understand the automated system that helped send the plane into a nose-dive, killing everyone on board. Engineers at the agency scoured their files for information about the system designed to help avoid stalls. They didn’t find much. Regulators had never independently assessed the risks of the dangerous software known as MCAS when they approved the plane in 2017. More than a dozen current and former employees at the F.A.A. and Boeing who spoke...

    A Seattle-based transgender former Amazon engineer has been arrested for allegedly hacking Capital One bank's systems to steal data it was storing on Amazon's Web Services cloud. Paige Thompson, 33, was arrested for breaking into the bank's systems to steal the addresses, phone numbers and names of 100million people in the United States. A portion of that figure - 140,000 - also had their social security numbers and 80,000 had their credit card details accessed. Thompson allegedly pulled it off between March and July of this year by breaking into the bank's servers through a misconfiguration in its firewall. The...

    Former President Barack Obama, who doesn't often comment on current politics, seemed to endorse on Saturday an op-ed written by 148 African Americans who served in his administration that called out President Donald Trump for recent comments degrading four congresswomen of color."I've always been proud of what this team accomplished during my administration. But more than what we did, I'm proud of how they're continuing to fight for an America that's better," Obama tweeted with a link to the op-ed published Friday evening in The Washington Post.Under the headline, "We are African Americans, we are patriots, and we refuse to...

    California law enforcement and school officials have defended 21 months of secrecy around the murder investigation of a Panorama High School student at the hands of MS-13 — one part of a grisly rampage that has generated national headlines and left at least 10 people dead. They said there was no need to alert teachers, parents and students because other students were never in danger, the gang had little presence on campus, and no acts of gang violence affected the campus itself. But a month before the October 2017 off-campus slaying of Brayan Andino, another incident linked to MS-13 erupted...
