Police have long had what they considered "non-lethal" weapons at their disposal, including pepper spray, stun guns and bean bag projectiles. But even those weapons have caused deaths, leading to a search for "less lethal" alternatives. The quest has taken on new urgency in the past year amid furor over a string of high-profile police shootings of black men.
FITCHBURG, Mass. (AP) — Police in more than 20 North American cities are testing the latest in less-lethal alternatives to bullets — "blunt impact projectiles" that cause suspects excruciating pain but stop short of…

The head of advocacy group KidsAndCars.org says the 4-year-old's death in a hot car was the 16th of its kind in the US this year. "Don't think this can't happen to you and your family. That's the biggest mistake," said Janette Fennell, Philadelphia-based founder and president of the nonprofit. "Sometimes our memories just let us down."
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 4-year-old boy who died in a stifling hot pickup truck in a Las Vegas home driveway might have been in the vehicle for up to three hours after his grandfather returned home with him on a sunny 100-degree…

Victoria Yilliadelivered her child just a few minutes' walk from the ward where just last year she had hovered between life and death, and nurses and medical staff still wore full protective suits and masks for fear of any lingering infection. Doctors gave her formula and told her not to nurse her baby until they ran tests to be sure there were no traces of the virus in her breast milk.

Francis, an Argentine native, is a staunch critic of the death penalty.
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — When Lidia Guerrero met with Pope Francis in Rome last year, the Argentine native told her he knew all about Guerrero's son, who has been on death row in Texas for 19 years. "I've prayed…
