Rayshard BrooksThe ex-Atlanta police officer who shot Rayshard Brooks last weekend has been charged with felony murder. Garrett Rolfe now faces 11 charges, some that stem from his alleged conduct after shooting the black man twice in the back during a confrontation outside a Wendy’s. The Fulton County district attorney said Rolfe kicked Brooks after shooting him and failed to give timely first aid. The other officer at the scene is charged with aggravated assault for allegedly standing on Brooks as he lay in the parking lot. The announcement sent ripples of tension through the city. Hours after the charges were announced, the Atlanta Police Department said an unusual number of officers called out sick from the late shift. Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said the city was still safely covered, and she hopes officers honor their commitment to protect and serve.Witness speaks out after Rayshard Brooks' fatal shootingWitness speaks out after Rayshard Brooks' fatal shootingrayshard brooks shooting witness fear melvin evans intv cpt vpx_00000424JUST WATCHEDWitness speaks out after Rayshard Brooks’ fatal shootingReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

In Los Angeles, City Council members are angling to replace some LAPD officers with unarmed responders — and the city’s police union supports the move. Those responders could include medical professionals, mental health workers and homeless outreach workers. In Washington, Democrats are moving forward with their policing reform package, setting up a full House vote for next week. Meanwhile, Confederate monuments and other historically fraught symbols are coming down across the country, and brands are reading the room.

CoronavirusIn the rush to find a coronavirus vaccine, some health experts are worried that the White House’s Operation Warp Speed is missing out on tried and true technologies that have over and over again resulted in successful vaccines. Instead of funding common vaccine methods used against diseases like hepatitis, flu, polio and rabies, the administration is investing as much as $2 billion in newer approaches that are promising but largely have not resulted in approved vaccines. President Trump on TV yesterday downplayed US outbreaks and said the virus is “dying out,” despite rising case numbers in many states. Back on the research front, a UK study found people with Type A blood have a higher risk of catching the coronavirus and of developing severe symptoms, while people with Type O blood have a lower risk.Is it safer to drive or fly during coronavirus pandemic?Is it safer to drive or fly during coronavirus pandemic?Is it safer to drive or fly during coronavirus pandemic?JUST WATCHEDIs it safer to drive or fly during coronavirus pandemic?ReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

John BoltonThe Trump administration is revving up its dispute over the forthcoming book by former national security advisor John Bolton. Now, President Trump is saying he wants courts to stop its release because it could reveal government secrets. CNN and several other news outlets got early copies of the book, and among his allegations, Bolton says the President asked Chinese President Xi Jinping for help in winning reelection and at times casually offered to intervene in the criminal justice system for foreign leaders. According to Bolton, Trump claimed Venezuela was essentially part of the US to justify military action there, and he once asked if Finland was part of Russia. Bolton also said the President’s own senior officials, perhaps including a famously loyal Mike Pompeo, mocked him behind his back.

SyriaSyria is bracing for even more economic devastation as the US State and Treasury departments roll out new sanctions against President Bashar al-Assad. The economic penalties are part of the newly enforced Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act, which is expected to trigger the most wide-reaching and aggressive economic penalties ever imposed on the country. They’re designed to starve al-Assad’s regime of funds and bring him back to the global negotiating table to facilitate an end to the brutal, yearslong civil war. However, the sanctions could deal a crushing blow to Syrian civilians, who already deal with widespread poverty and are highly reliant on outside aid.Syria: 'We can't go back and we can't go forward'Syria: 'We can't go back and we can't go forward'Syria: 'We can't go back and we can't go forward'JUST WATCHEDSyria: ‘We can’t go back and we can’t go forward’ReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH
