Dr. Martin Salia contracted Ebola while working in Sierra Leone and was flown to Nebraska for treatment before he died today. Should he have been transferred at all?

A woman filed a lawsuit in federal court on Friday against a Ferguson, Missouri corrections officer alleging he raped her while she was in jail last year. The woman, who is unnamed, says she was stopped by a police officer for having expired license plates. She was arrested and given two tickets after giving him a false name, but during her booking, she alleges Jaris Hayden brought her into the boiler room of the city's jail and forced her to perform oral sex and have intercourse with him. She then went to the emergency room, and DNA analysis has supposedly linked pubic hair to Hayden. Hayden was arrested on four felony charges and released after posting bond.


Outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder expressed significant concerns about capital punishment during an interview with the Marshall Project published Monday. Holder brought up this year's series of botched executions and raised the issue that wrongly convicted people may be executed. "I very much disagree with Justice Scalia's certitude that we have never put to death an innocent person," Holder said. "I think at some point we will find a person who was put to death and who should not have been, who was not guilty of a crime."


The University of Michigan's football team cut senior defensive end Frank Clark on Monday after he was arrested for domestic abuse over the weekend. Police apprehended Clark outside of a hotel in Sandusky, Ohio, after a fight with his girlfriend. Cops charged him with one count of misdemeanor domestic violence and one count of assault. (He pleaded not guilty to both on Monday.) Clark appeared intoxicated, according to the police report. "I didn't do [expletive] to her, I didn't touch that woman, she is a woman," he said. Girlfriend Diamond Hurt reportedly had a welt on her cheek, bruises on her neck, and a scuff burn on her right hip. Her younger brother said he saw Clark grab her by the throat. Hurt said she bit Clark on the nose, and then he "punched her in the face." Police said she did not initially want to press charges, but officers told her there were clear signs of domestic abuse and he would be charged.
