The case surrounding the death of Akai Gurley, an African-American man who was fatally shot by a police officer in New York, is moving forward. Jury deliberations kicked off Tuesday. Rookie police officer Peter Liang shot and killed Gurley, who was unarmed, in a Brooklyn stairwell back in 2014. If found guilty, 28-year-old Liang could face up to 15 years behind bars. Liang was slapped with charges of manslaughter, assault, reckless endangerment, official misconduct, and criminally negligent homicide. On Monday, he testified before the court, claiming he accidentally fired his gun and didn’t know someone else was in the stairwell. After realizing that he shot Gurley, Liang claims he couldn’t help him because he was never trained in first aid. Prior to the shooting, Liang was on the force for only 11 months. Read more.


Supreme Court Blocks President Obama’s Climate Change Plan

After proposing that federal funds be allocated towards overcoming climate change, President Obama’s plan has been denied by the Supreme Court. The court’s members, who lean more towards the conservative side, halted the “Clean Power Plan,” which was designed to decrease pollution from power plants. A petition previously created by 29 Republican leaders expressed opposition. “This stay will remain in place until the challenges have made their way through the Supreme Court, by which time Obama will likely have left office,” said Curt Levey, the executive director of the conservative FreedomWorks Foundation. “Thus, the stay may well be a fatal blow to the EPA’s attempt to dramatically expand its power and to the administration’s attempt to shove its climate change agenda down the throats of the American people.” The Environmental Protection Agency has to hold back from enforcing the “Clean Power Plan” until the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit examines a state lawsuit placed against it. The legal battle is slated for June. Read more.
