  • Slain NOPD officer 'wanted to go out and save the city,' uncle says

    Marcus McNeil's work with the New Orleans Police Department made him feel "like a superhero," his uncle Joseph Gilyot said. "He wanted to go out and save the city," Gilyot said. "He truly loved his job." Gilyot, 53, and others who knew McNeil said it was his dream to become a police officer. Just three years after joining the NOPD, McNeil -- a 29-year-old father of two -- was gunned down early Friday morning (Oct. 13) while patrolling in New Orleans East. Barbara May, a longtime friend of McNeil's family, said she got a call from McNeil's grandmother, Alvena McNeil,...

    The New York Times has apologized for the picture it chose to go along with an article it published about last week’s brutal murder of IDF soldier Eden Atias. Rather than showing a photo of the soldier, the article entitled “Attack on Israeli Worsens Tensions With Palestinians” instead featured a photo of the 16-year-old terrorist’s mother as she was visited by her relatives. On Tuesday, the newspaper’s public editor Margaret Sullivan posted a blog in which she admitted that using the mother’s photo was the wrong decision.

This year’s figure is 23 percent higher than the 122 killed in the line of duty in 2009.

Bury said before issuing the restraining order. Bury told two members of the group Awful Truth that the photo, which was published in the Arizona Daily Star on June 2, 2008, is protected by the Copyright Act of the United States and therefore cannot be used without permission....

After Oscar rang a second doorbell on Badger Street, neighbors made a terrible discovery. In an extended-cab pickup truck parked around the corner on Still Street, the boy's father and mother had been shot dead.
