Breonna TaylorProtests erupted around the nation after yesterday’s news that none of the three officers involved in Breonna Taylor’s death would be charged with her killing. In a long-awaited decision, a grand jury indicted a former police officer on wanton endangerment charges for his actions the night the 26-year-old was killed. The charge applies to the risk put on Taylor’s neighbors during the police raid on her home but does not hold the officer responsible for her death. The decision drew swift criticism from demonstrators who wanted more serious charges and the three officers arrested. A community activist said there was “a lot of sadness and weeping” as Taylor’s mother learned the news. Then shortly before curfew, two Louisville police officers were shot near a protest. Their wounds were not life-threatening, and a suspect is in custody.This is what's kept Breonna Taylor's case going This is what's kept Breonna Taylor's case going This is what's kept Breonna Taylor's case going JUST WATCHEDThis is what’s kept Breonna Taylor’s case going ReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

And months into the pandemic, the agency’s director said more than 90% of Americans remain susceptible to the virus. The nation is also no longer seeing the kind of decline in deaths as in August. Just days after the US passed 200,000 deaths, an infectious disease expert said it’s not unfathomable that 100,000 more people could die by the end of the year. On a more encouraging note, Johnson & Johnson announced that its single dose vaccine has entered Phase 3 trials. Elsewhere in the world, the United Kingdom recorded it highest daily increase in virus cases since May. A day earlier, the country announced a series of new restrictions to curb the spread.Experts warn of autumn coronavirus surgeExperts warn of autumn coronavirus surgeexp TSR.Todd.will.coronavirus.cases.increase.in.winter_00000413JUST WATCHEDExperts warn of autumn coronavirus surgeReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

His statement adds fuel to existing concerns that he might not accept the results if he loses to Joe Biden in November. It could also send a signal to the President’s supporters about how to react to a Biden victory, CNN’s Stephen Collinson writes. The President’s comments come as a tense political battle is playing out over who will fill the Supreme Court seat of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The Senate failed to agree on language for a resolution honoring the late justice, a sign of just how divided the chamber is.Trump won't commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he losesTrump won't commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he losesTrump won't commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he losesJUST WATCHEDTrump won’t commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he losesReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

North and South KoreaA South Korean government worker has been shot dead after crossing a maritime border into North Korea, Seoul said. The man went missing Monday at sea near South Korean islands, an official said. A North Korean vessel first discovered the man, who was thought to be in the process of defecting to North Korea. Later, a North Korean patrol vessel opened fire and killed him. Tensions have been rising between North and South Korea since communication between the sides was cut off in June. Experts called that move a sign that North Korea was adopting a more confrontational stance toward its neighbor after more than two years of failed peace talks.How did Korea split?

Opposition politicians described the ceremony as a “thieves’ meeting” and a “farce,” and urged the international community to denounce his appointment. The US has rejected the legitimacy of his win. Lukashenko, who has been in power since 1994, was declared the landslide winner of a vote last month. Critics, however, have publicly accused him of rigging the poll and have since disappeared from the country. Mass demonstrations have been going on since then.How a stay-at-home mom became opposition leader in BelarusHow a stay-at-home mom became opposition leader in BelarussvetlanaJUST WATCHEDHow a stay-at-home mom became opposition leader in BelarusReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH
