Cheat Sheet - Cop Killer Had a Death Wish

Read This, Skip That ....

December 22, 2014
Ismaaiyl Brinsley may have claimed that he was hunting police officers as a sort of twisted revenge for Michael Brown and Eric Garner, who both suffered tragic deaths at the hands of cops, but he was more of a deranged loser than militant radical. After 19 arrests, three suspected murders, and one attempted suicide, he is finally gone, writes M.L. Nestel.
As a teen, she wowed in films like Donnie Darko and Saved! Now Jena Malone is 30, and all the rage once again with roles in Inherent Vice, The Hunger Games, and a massive new superhero film. Marlow Stern talks to the self-proclaimed weirdo about her unusual path to stardom.
Will those who protested Eric Garner's death rush to the side of Rafael Ramos' two sons, or Wenjian Liu's widow, who married the police officer just two months ago? Mike Barnicle asks whether the demonstrators will stick around to defend the men and women who dedicate their lives to protecting us each day.

Former Milwaukee Police Officer Christopher Manney will not face charges for fatally shooting Dontre Hamilton, a black man, in April. District Attorney John Chisholm declined to press charges, despite calls from Hamilton's family and other protesters. A lawyer for Hamilton's family said on Monday that he is seeking a federal investigation to determine if Manney's actions warrant federal charges. Manney was called when workers at a Starbucks complained that Hamilton was sleeping in a downtown park. Manney began patting Hamilton down, and Hamilton, who was schizophrenic, began to fight him. Manney proceeded to shoot Hamilton 14 times.


North Korea was experiencing a massive Internet outage Monday, according to tech experts who claim the duress currently being placed on the Hermit Kingdom's network is consistent with a cyberattack. Pyongyang has denied that its agents are responsible for hacking into Sony's email database in revenge for making The Interview. Despite North Korea's professed innocence, President Obama has threatened measured retaliation against Kim Jong Un's regime. Doug Madory, the director of Internet analysis at Dyn Research, says a denial of service attack on North Korea may be underway.
