    The now six-year-old boy who was thrown from a balcony at the Mall of America is celebrating his recovery a year after the incident. In April 2019, Landen was with his mother at the Mall of America when a man "looking for someone to kill" approached Landen and threw him over the balcony, according to court documents. The nearly 40-foot fall left Landen seriously injured with a long road to recovery. Donations poured in with more than $1 million raised online. According to family updates, Landen returned home in August and as of late November, Landen was walking "perfectly." In...

    A woman close to Omar posted a YouTube video packed with degrading insults about wheelchair-bound Abdihakim Osman and pressed members of her Somali-American clan to go after him. . . . She went on to say Osman has a ‘big bell, small udder, pillar-like head’ and mocked his disability which was caused by contracting polio as a child in Somalia. ‘You Majeerteen men, we despise you,’ she added, talking to her clan members. ‘You are letting this ox seated on the ground harass us. ‘Why don’t you stop this crippled dog?’

Mohamed Omar Ali, a 59-year-old Somali national, was arrested Friday on charges of sexual assault of a child and sexual indecency of a child after an investigation was launched in September, Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls told reporters at a press conference Monday.

    Outspoken Democrats -- from far-left "Squad" members to 2020 presidential hopefuls -- wasted little time Saturday in denouncing President Trump's warning to Iran about possible retaliation for the U.S. airstrike that killed Iran's Gen. Qassem Soleimani. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., answered by calling the president a “monster.” “This is a war crime," Ocasio-Cortez wrote. "Threatening to target and kill innocent families, women and children -- which is what you’re doing by targeting cultural sites - does not make you a ‘tough guy,’ It does not make you ‘strategic.’ It makes you a monster.” Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., accused Trump of...

    A former Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an unarmed woman who had called 911 said Friday he "knew in an instant that I was wrong" and apologized to her family, just moments before a judge brushed off a defense request for leniency and ordered him to prison for 12½ years. The stiff sentence for Mohamed Noor capped a case that had been fraught by race from the start. Noor, a Somali American, shot Justine Ruszczyk Damond , a white, upper-middle-class dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia, when she approached his squad car in the alley behind her...

    Two days before Mohamed Noor is to be sentenced, attorneys for the former Minneapolis police officer convicted in the fatal shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond have asked a judge to consider an unusual sentence that would only have Noor locked up for two weeks a year. In their memorandum in support of a "mitigated sentencing departure," attorneys Thomas Plunkett and Peter Wold asked the court to consider Noor's lack of a criminal history, remorse and community support. In the first of two proposed sentences, the attorneys asked for no prison time, instead requiring Noor to turn himself in to the...

    The man who pleaded guilty to throwing a 5-year-old boy from a third-floor balcony at the Mall of America in April received a sentence of 228 months (19 years) Monday morning. Two-thirds of that sentence must be spent in prison. Emmanuel Aranda, 24, was charged with attempted premeditated first-degree murder. During a hearing, Aranda said he knew throwing the child over the balcony could kill him. Aranda agreed to a plea deal in the case roughly three weeks ago. Through statements read in court, the family of 5-year-old Landen, who is still recovering, had a chance to address Aranda prior...

    Attorneys for the former Minneapolis police officer convicted of fatally shooting an unarmed woman in 2017 plan to ask a sentencing judge for no prison time. If that’s not granted, they’re seeking less prison time than state sentencing guidelines recommend. Mohamed Noor’s lawyers filed a motion Thursday asking for a “dispositional departure” when he is sentenced June 7. He was convicted of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the fatal shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, a dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia. She had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her house.
