Jackson’s attempt to join the protesters Thursday night – a number of whom who were calling for his resignation – backfired. At least one person was arrested after a scuffle started just yards behind the marching police chief, and several others were taken into custody.

hated to even write about this, but too many kids being hurt or worse in this country.
State child welfare agencies say case workers were in contact with Timothy Ray Jones days before he allegedly killed his five children in South Carolina. A Massachusetts woman was arraigned on Friday after police discovered three dead infants in a Blackstone home.

Insightful piece by my colleague (and former fighter pilot) Brad Knickerbocker.
A private turboprop aircraft headed to Florida from Rochester, NY, apparently crashed new Jamaica. Initial reports indicate the pilot may have become incapacitated due to loss of cabin pressurization.

Audio of #MikeBrown  shooting in #Ferguson may clarify, or cloud.
A new audio recording could be of the Michael Brown shooting. But it does very little to clarify what happened in Ferguson and could just fuel competing narratives.

kindness with that coffee? that ain't for everyone.
The guy who stopped a 'pay-it-forward' chain after over 700 acts of kindness says he’s calling Starbucks out for taking advantage of a marketing stunt.

I've seen similar progress in Atlanta thanks to city's mural and graffiti projects. 
Detroit artists Gina Reichert and Mitch Cope bought vacant homes and converted them into a multi-faceted artistic community, including a performing arts center and recording studio.

as i waded into this piece, i started realizing just what a minefield this topic really is.
The White House has taken a lead when it comes to forcing colleges that get federal aid to toughen rules dealing with sex assault allegations. While critics say this has alienated many male students, Obama announced an 'It’s On Us' campaign to encourage men to step in to protect women.

Always wanted to see Kilauea up close -- but for a lot of Hawaiians she's getting a bit close for comfort. Expect slo-mo evac.
Preparations for possible evacuation are picking up speed as a massive Kilauea lava flow on the Big Island of Hawaii approaches homes. Natives say the volcano’s guardian spirit is 'cleaning house.'

Just really tough to legislate common sense without stepping on founding ideas.
Culture and law tip toward early introduction to shooting, often through family picnics at gun range, Boy Scouts, or NRA training sessions. But the accidental Uzi shooting of a gun instructor by a 9-year-old is giving some pause.

#Napa  rocked by temblors. Here's the geology at work.
As many as 65 aftershocks occurred in the first 24 hours following Sunday’s quake, and four minor temblors were reported in Napa County Tuesday morning.

Very tense situation last night in Ferguson, Mo.; expect criticism of mild police response to start.
After nights of rioting following the police shooting of unarmed teen Mike Brown, Missouri Highway Patrol Capt. Ron Johnson took over from local police, engaging rather than confronting protesters.
