Journalist Allegedly Tackled By Deputies


A radio reporter in Los Angeles has videos that appear to show deputies tackling her to the ground and arresting her during coverage of a protest. NewsNet's Danielle Radin reports.

A Washington man survived being shot nine times at point blank range by a hitman allegedly hired by his ex-wife. Baron Li was in a bitter custody battle with his ex-wife Shaerin Kelley over their son. As Li walked to his car, cops say a masked assassin was lying in wait, telling an accomplice he was "going to cap someone," according to court documents. Police found a GPS tracking device on Li's car, which they say was purchased by Kelley. She was then arrested and charged with attempted murder.

UK-made anti-riot gear has been widely used in America during clashes with Black Lives Matter protesters, despite the government's claim there is "no evidence" British equipment was used, Sky News has found.

In a joint investigation with The Guardian, Bellingcat and Lighthouse Reports, riot shields made in England were found to have been used by at least six different US law enforcement agencies across three states.

The shields, intended to protect officers, have been used by US police in confrontations with protesters, journalists and passers-by - including a 67-year-old cancer patient who walks with a cane who had to seek medical help.
President-elect Joe Biden has vowed to heal divisions after what he called a "convincing victory" over Donald Trump. Biden said it was time to "make America respected around the world again."

Outgoing President Donald Trump now faces a stark choice: Concede graciously for the sake of the nation — or don't, and get evicted anyway. The Associated Press reports that Trump is not expected to ever formally concede, citing people close to him, but is likely to grudgingly vacate the White House at the end of his term. In not formally conceding, Trump would break with a more than a 100-year old tradition in US politics. His ongoing efforts to paint the election as unfair are seen both as an effort to soothe a bruised ego and to show his loyal base of supporters that he is still fighting.
There is no evidence to support Trump's unprecedented claims of mass fraud in Tuesday's election.

President Trump's campaign and the Republican National Committee filed a lawsuit in the state of Arizona that seeks the manual inspection of in-person ballots in Phoenix. The Election Day ballots, which could potentially be in thousands, were allegedly mishandled by poll workers. This was filed hours after the dismissal of another Arizona election lawsuit that challenged the use of Sharpie markers in completing Election Day ballots.
