Brother of Fort Worth Woman Fatally Shot by Police Speaks Out

A US Navy sailor stationed in San Diego is speaking out after learning his sister was shot and killed  by a police officer in her Texas home. Adarius Carr is bewildered by the police officer’s actions the night his sister died, he said to KSWB. “This man murdered someone. He should be arrested,” Adarius Carr said, breaking down in tears. As a 12-year member of the military, “I’ve been trained and taught there are preplanned responses to everything you do,” he said. “And when you don’t do it the way you’ve been trained, or the way you’ve been taught, you have to answer to that. … You know better.” Jefferson’s family said police took the life of a woman committed to helping others. “Service is real big for our family,” Adarius Carr said. “We want to give back to this world. We want to make it a better place.” Merritt said Jefferson’s final act of service may have saved her nephew’s life. “His Auntie Tay did not allow him to check the windows. She checked herself,” Merritt said. “What would have happened if that little…

Santa Clara County union workers to vote on county’s latest contract offer

Santa Clara County announced Tuesday that it has put a “last, best and final” contract offer on the table, which will go to a vote of striking union members. Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 521, which represents 12,000 members, has selectively held six days of strikes at various county departments, including roads, parks and social services. County and union negotiators met Tuesday for the second time since the strike was called on Oct. 2, where the county presented its latest offer. It includes the same wage offer as a previous proposal — annual raises of 3 percent over five years, plus additional salary increases for certain workers — but omits a requirement that workers contribute 2 percent more than they’re already paying for their health care premiums, according to a county press release. If union members don’t accept the latest proposal, the county is hoping to take the dispute to mediation, county CEO Jeff Smith said in a phone call Tuesday evening. “We’re clearly far apart and we really want to resolve this problem,” Smith said. “We think a third party intervening would be…

George Conway donates to Trump’s primary challenger

By Hunter Woodall | Associated Press MANCHESTER, N.H. — The husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has donated to one of President Donald Trump’s Republican primary challengers. According to Federal Election Commission filings, George Conway donated $5,600 to former Illinois congressman Joe Walsh’s 2020 run on Aug. 30. Conway, an attorney, has been critical of Trump during his presidency. In March, Trump tweeted that Conway is “a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!” For his part, Conway has questioned the president’s mental health and described Trump’s presidency as “maddening to watch.” In addition to Walsh, former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld and former South Carolina governor and congressman Mark Sanford are also running against Trump in the Republican presidential primary. Several states have decided to cancel their Republican primaries ahead of the 2020 election, an effort that helps smooth Trump’s path to reelection.

Van Nuys Business Owners Say City Not Doing Enough To Address Homeless Problem

VAN NUYS (CBSLA) — Tents and trash could be seen covering some streets in Van Nuys, and a number of business owners in a small industrial side of town said they were fed up. “Our customers are scared to come to our business because they feel like it’s too scary to walk down the street,” one business owner said. “And it is.” Business owners said they have called the city once or twice per week, but said not much was being done. They said the trash gets cleaned up, but shortly after more begins piling up. Cell phone video showed tents lining the sidewalk, and business owners said fires were also being started in the area and drug paraphernalia was being found along the streets. “They set up tents and stuff, and we tell them just don’t put it in front of our business, but you cant mess around with them,” a business owner said. “And even officers say don’t argue with them. We can’t do anything about it. We call the city and email. Nobody cares.” The city said it was doing what it…

Report: 1 in 3 Undergraduate Woman At USC Sexually Assaulted On Campus

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — The University of Southern California is one of 33 public and private universities that recently took part in a national sexual misconduct survey — four years after the first one — that found 1 in 4 female undergrads reported that they were sexually assaulted on campus nationally. At USC, that number was 1 in 3. “That’s not what we want our students to experience while they’re here,” Dr. Sarah Van Orman, chief student health officer at USC, said. “It suggests to us that we have a lot more work do to. Van Orman, the principal investigator of the survey on campus, said that while there was only a slight increase in the number of female undergrads who said they were sexually assaulted on campus this year compared to 2015, it was still a big concern. “In many cases, the student may have been passed out or unable to consent,” she said. “We also know that in the vast majority of the situations for students, the perpetrators were other students, people they knew.” Van Orman said she was also concerned that USC’s…
