  • 1st Century Roman Statue, Looted A Decade Ago, Found In Belgium By Off-Duty Police

    wncw.org Wednesday, 14 April 2021 05:24:00

    Italian art police recovered a 1st century Roman statue that had been looted from an archaeological site nearly a decade ago after off-duty officers spotted it in an antique shop in Belgium, Italian authorities said this week. The Carabinieri Command for the Protection of Cultural Heritage (TPC) said in a statement that two of its officers, on assignment in Brussels, had been browsing a neighborhood of antique shops after work when they came upon a marble statue that struck them as suspicious. The headless, toga-draped figure appeared to be of Italian origin, and bore the signature damage of excavation tools. Upon their return to Italy, the officers cross-referenced their photographs with a database of stolen cultural assets, which confirmed their hunch: The statue had been stolen in November 2011 from the Villa Marini Dettina archaeological site, on the outskirts of Rome. The life-size "Togatus" statue is valued at roughly 100,000 euros, or $119,485 USD. Its recovery required an

  • 'I Never Imagined This': Daunte Wright's Family Calls For Accountability

    wncw.org Wednesday, 14 April 2021 04:23:00

    In their first public press conference, the family of Daunte Wright, the 20-year-old Black man shot and killed by police in Brooklyn Center, Minn., expressed grief and anger, called for accountability, and questioned why police felt the need to use any force on their son. Katie Wright, Daunte's mother, recounted the phone call she had with her son when he called to ask for advice after police pulled him over. She said he told her he'd been pulled over due to air fresheners hanging from his rearview mirror, a minor violation of law in Minnesota . Police officials have since said the reason for the stop was expired registration tags. "I never imagined this was what was going to happen," she said, breaking into tears. "That was the last time I've heard from my son. And I've had no explanation since then." Police shot Daunte Wright during a traffic stop on Sunday. Officials say that after the officers pulled him over, they discovered an outstanding warrant stemming from misdemeanor charges

  • Rusten Sheskey, Kenosha Officer Who Shot Jacob Blake, Will Not Face Discipline

    wncw.org Wednesday, 14 April 2021 03:26:00

    Kenosha, Wis., police said Tuesday that Rusten Sheskey, the police officer who shot Jacob Blake last summer, has been found to have acted within the law and department policy. In August, Sheskey fired seven shots at close range at the back of Blake, a Black man, as Blake walked away from the officer and toward a parked vehicle where two of his young children were sitting. Six of those shots struck Blake, who was left paralyzed. The shooting touched off major protests in the Wisconsin city. Chief Daniel Miskinis said the use-of-force incident had been investigated by an outside agency and reviewed by independent experts. The Kenosha County District Attorney's Office announced in January that no charges would be brought against Sheskey. "He acted within the law and was consistent with training," Miskinis said in a statement Tuesday. "This incident was also reviewed internally. Officer Sheskey was found to have been acting within policy and will not be subjected to discipline." Sheskey is

  • Park Police Officer Who Provided Backup Testifies In Derek Chauvin Trial

    wncw.org Wednesday, 14 April 2021 02:36:00

    The defense called on Officer Peter Chang of the Minneapolis Park Police to testify in the trial of Derek Chauvin, who is on trial on murder and manslaughter charges in the death of George Floyd. Chang was stationed at a nearby park last May 25 when he heard a dispatch on his radio asking for assistance. He was one of the closer officers to Cup Foods, so he went to the scene. It's common for park police to assist Minneapolis city police, Chang said, and explained that officers in both forces attend the same police academy. Chang described the scene when he arrived: "Floyd was in handcuffs, sitting on the ground, leaning against the wall." Chang said that a crowd had gathered and that the onlookers were "becoming more loud and aggressive." Chang said he didn't know whether the car Floyd was driving had been searched yet, and he was concerned about that. He said the onlookers were "very aggressive, aggressive toward the officers." Video from Chang's bodycam was then shown. Defense

  • Expert Testifies Chauvin's Actions Were Justified And In Line With Policies

    wncw.org Wednesday, 14 April 2021 02:12:00

    Updated April 13, 2021 at 7:09 PM ET A use-of-force witness gave a new point of view to former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin's trial on charges of murder and manslaughter. The defense witness said Tuesday that Chauvin and three other officers' actions were justified during the arrest that ended in George Floyd's death and that they used an appropriate amount of force. "I felt that Derek Chauvin was justified, was acting with objective reasonableness, following Minneapolis Police Department policy and current standards of law enforcement," Barry Brodd, a former police officer, testified. Brodd described the position in which Floyd was restrained — facedown on the ground — as being safest for officers and suspect. And he added that holding a person in that position does not make it more dangerous. "If the officer is justified in using the prone control, the maintaining of the prone control is not a use of force. It's a control technique," he testified. "It doesn't hurt."

  • Biden To Make Historic Census Director Pick With Latinx Statistician Rob Santos

    wncw.org Wednesday, 14 April 2021 01:19:00

    In a historic move, President Biden is naming Robert Santos, one of the country's leading statisticians and the American Statistical Association's president, as his intended nominee to head the U.S. Census Bureau. If confirmed by the Senate, Santos, who is Latinx, would be the first permanent director of color for the federal government's largest statistical agency, which is in charge of major surveys and the once-a-decade head count used for distributing political representation and funding around the United States. The White House announced Santos as Biden's intended nominee in a statement released on Tuesday . Depending on the timing of a confirmation, Santos could finish the term left open by former Director Steven Dillingham that is ending this year. Dillingham was the Trump-appointed director who quit in January after whistleblowers filed complaints about Dillingham's role in trying to rush out an incomplete data report on noncitizens. Santos could be reappointed after the end of

  • Brooklyn Center Police Chief And Officer Who Shot Daunte Wright Resign

    wncw.org Wednesday, 14 April 2021 00:57:00

    Updated April 13, 2021 at 2:57 PM ET Kim Potter, the Brooklyn Center, Minn., police officer who shot and killed Daunte Wright, has resigned. Potter had served 26 years on the force before the fatal encounter Sunday where officials said she mistakenly fired her handgun instead of her Taser. Police Chief Tim Gannon, who on Monday released the body camera footage and characterized the shooting as an "accidental discharge," has also stepped down. Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott announced the resignations at a news conference Tuesday. "We're hoping that we're turning over a new leaf now," Elliott said. Potter, who had previously served as president of the local police union and whose duties included training other officers, had initially been placed on administrative leave, but pressure had grown from community members to fire her. Critics had raised questions of how someone responsible for police training could have mistaken a Taser for a handgun. Elliott said that he had not asked for

  • Passenger In George Floyd's Car Testifies In Derek Chauvin Trial

    wncw.org Wednesday, 14 April 2021 00:48:00

    Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin's attorney called on Shawanda Hill to testify on Tuesday morning. Chauvin is on trial on murder and manslaughter charges in George Floyd's death. Hill told the court she was at the Cup Foods store last May 25 when she ran into Floyd, whom she knew. She described his behavior as "happy, normal, talking, alert." She said Floyd offered to give her a ride to her house, and she went with him to the car he was driving. They sat in the car, chatting and talking about what they were about to do, she told the court. Then she said she got a phone call from her daughter, and while she was on the phone, Floyd fell asleep. Store employees then approached the car about a suspected counterfeit $20 bill that Floyd had used earlier. Hill said that she, the store clerks and a friend of Floyd's tried to wake him up. Floyd would wake up momentarily and say something or make a gesture, then nod off again, Hill testified. Hill told the clerks that she would

  • Biden's National Security Team Lists Leading Threats, With China At The Top

    wncw.org Tuesday, 13 April 2021 23:54:00

    The U.S. intelligence community said Tuesday that it views four countries as posing the main national security challenges in the coming year: China, followed by Russia, Iran and North Korea. "China increasingly is a near-peer competitor, challenging the United States in multiple arenas — especially economically, militarily, and technologically — and is pushing to change global norms," said the report released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. The report cites China's growing military assertiveness in several regional disputes, including Taiwan, the India-China border and the South China Sea. "China seeks to use coordinated, whole-of-government tools to demonstrate its growing strength and compel regional neighbors to acquiesce to Beijing's preferences, including its claims over disputed territory," the report says. U.S.-China friction President Biden has described China as the main challenge to U.S. global leadership in the 21st century, saying Beijing seeks to

  • Henry Louis Gates Jr. On 'The Black Church' And His Own Bargain With Jesus

    wncw.org Tuesday, 13 April 2021 23:44:00

    TERRY GROSS, HOST: This is FRESH AIR. I'm Terry Gross. My guest, Henry Louis Gates, has written a new book called "The Black Church." That's a companion to the PBS series he hosts of the same name. The book explores the history of African American religions from the days of the trans-Atlantic slave trade to the Black Lives Matter movement. He says Black churches were the first institutions built by Black people and run independent of white society in the U.S. with the earliest Black Christian congregations roughly contemporaneous with the Declaration of Independence. He describes how churches became the foundation of Black religious, political, economic and social life. He also tells his story about the bargain he made with Jesus that led him to the church at age 12. But life eventually led him to become more of an observer than participant in religion. Henry Louis Gates has hosted many PBS series and written companion books exploring the history of African Americans, including the

  • Biden Administration Says It Will Withdraw U.S. Troops From Afghanistan By Sept. 11

    wncw.org Tuesday, 13 April 2021 23:41:00

    President Biden will withdraw all remaining U.S. troops from Afghanistan by Sept. 11, the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that prompted America's involvement in its longest war, a senior administration official told reporters on Tuesday. Some 2,500 U.S. troops remain in Afghanistan , and as many as 1,000 more special operations forces are also reported to be in the country. There were more than 100,000 at the war's peak in 2011. The withdrawal will miss a May 1 deadline that the Trump administration had established in a deal last year with the Taliban, which included provisions for peace talks between Afghanistan's government and the Taliban that have since faltered. The official said Biden had arrived at that determination after a "rigorous" policy review and believes the threat to the U.S. emanating from Afghanistan is at a level that can be addressed without a persistent military footprint in the country. The president is expected make an official announcement on Wednesday

  • Pitcher Hope Trautwein Throws A Perfect Game Of All Strikeouts

    wncw.org Tuesday, 13 April 2021 23:18:00

    It's a rare feat in baseball or softball to pitch a "perfect game." That happens when no opponent reaches base — not by a hit, or a fielding error, or a walk. But pitcher Hope Trautwein of the University of North Texas made history on Sunday by pitching a game more than perfect. Through all seven innings, she struck out every single one of the 21 batters she faced from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. "I guess it's never been done before so it doesn't have a name," she told NPR's Morning Edition . The NCAA said Trautwein, who hails from Pflugerville, Texas, is the first pitcher in NCAA Division I softball history to strike out every batter in a seven-inning perfect game. It's also the first perfect game in the history of the North Texas team. "I don't really know what else to call it. Never seen anything like it. Don't know if I ever will," North Texas head coach Rodney DeLong said. Two other pitchers in NCAA Division I softball have recorded 21 strikeouts in seven-inning

  • Protests Grow In Minnesota And Around U.S. Over Death of Daunte Wright

    wncw.org Tuesday, 13 April 2021 22:43:00

    Protests spread across the country Monday night after police officials in Brooklyn Center, Minn., said they believed that the officer who shot and killed 20-year-old Daunte Wright had intended to use her Taser but accidentally fired her handgun instead. Even as a cold drizzle fell in Minnesota, hundreds turned out for a memorial protest at the police department in Brooklyn Center, a few miles from the scene of Wright's death, despite a 7 p.m. curfew that had been called across much of the Twin Cities area. Demonstrators were met with lines of police officers in riot gear and nightsticks. Police declared an unlawful assembly at nightfall, eventually turning to flash-bang grenades, tear gas and foam rounds to clear the crowd. MPR News also reported damage and looting at a strip mall across the street from the police station. About 40 people were arrested, authorities said, many of whom were cited with misdemeanor curfew violations. The clashes in Minnesota and beyond on Monday night

  • 'Enough Is Enough': Democrats Push For GOP Support On Asian American Hate Crimes Bill

    wncw.org Tuesday, 13 April 2021 22:35:00

    Updated April 13, 2021 at 3:07 PM ET Top congressional Democrats are calling on their Republican colleagues to support legislation introduced by Sen. Mazie Hirono and Rep. Grace Meng that addresses the rising number of hate crimes and violence against Asian Americans. "For more than a year, the Asian American community has been fighting two viruses, the COVID-19 pandemic and anti-Asian hate," Meng told reporters during a press conference on Tuesday. "We've heard about and seen videos of both young and elderly Asian Americans being shoved to the ground, stomped on, being spat on and shunned. These heinous acts have been outrageous, unconscionable and they must end." "Combating hate should not be a partisan issue," the New York Democrat added. "We must all as Democrats and Republicans stand together against this racism and violence and say enough is enough." The AAPI community has experienced a dramatic spike in the number of hate crimes in the past year. The organization Stop AAPI Hate

  • Biden To Nominate Christine Wormuth As 1st Female Secretary Of The Army

    wncw.org Tuesday, 13 April 2021 21:03:00

    President Biden will nominate Christine Wormuth to be the next secretary of the Army, the White House announced Monday. She would be the first woman to serve in that role if confirmed by the Senate. Wormuth has an extensive background in foreign policy and national security, and notably served as undersecretary of defense for policy — the third most senior civilian position in the Department of Defense — during the Obama administration. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin described her in a statement as a "true patriot with a dedicated career in service to America and our nation's security." "As the former Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, Christine advanced the department's counter-ISIS campaign and the rebalance to Asia, and her deep expertise will be critical in addressing and deterring today's global threats, including the pacing challenge from China and nation-state threats emanating from Russia, Iran, and North Korea," Austin said. "I have no doubt that, if confirmed, she will

  • Watch Live: Chauvin Defense Begins Presenting At Murder Trial

    wncw.org Tuesday, 13 April 2021 20:25:00

    Updated April 13, 2021 at 12:52 PM ET The defense of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin began presenting its case on Tuesday over the killing of George Floyd. The first witness for the defense was former Minneapolis police officer Scott Creighton. The defense showed Creighton's bodycam footage from a traffic stop in May 2019, in which the passenger of the car was Floyd. In the video, Creighton approaches the passenger side, where the window was down. Creighton asks the passenger, Floyd, to undo his seatbelt: "Go ahead and undo your seatbelt." Creighton told the court that he pulled his service weapon when he couldn't see Floyd's hands. In the video, Floyd is not fully visible due to the camera angle, though his hands are seen in portions of it. "Don't shoot me man, please, I don't want to be shot," Floyd can be heard saying. "I don't plan on shooting you," Creighton says in the video. "I'm just saying. Take your time." MPR News / YouTube A moment later, Creighton says

  • India's Crusade To Save Babies And Moms In The Pandemic

    wncw.org Tuesday, 13 April 2021 19:56:00

    Ezhil Arasi Kumar was 8 weeks pregnant and due for her first prenatal visit — which would include an ultrasound scan. But she didn't go. Her appointment had been scheduled around the time when India's 21-day lockdown began, with little notice, on the eve of March 24, 2020. Not a single private hospital was open in Madurai, a city in the Southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, where they lived. "Everything had shut down overnight," says her husband, Ranjith. Public transport ground to a halt. The government-run hospitals in the city were overwhelmed with COVID patients and, unlike private facilities, didn't take appointments. The prospect of waiting for hours to see a doctor in a pandemic caused the couple anxiety. So they decided they could wait for the checkup. Lockdown was extended several times and finally eased on May 17, but hospitals were still packed. The couple got their first ultrasound in the sixth month of the pregnancy at a private clinic. However, 120 private hospitals in the

  • Consumer Prices Jump For March

    wncw.org Tuesday, 13 April 2021 19:51:00

    Copyright 2021 NPR. To see more, visit STEVE INSKEEP, HOST: Consumer prices jumped sharply last month as more of the economy reopened and businesses struggled to keep pace with more consumers ready to spend. The Labor Department says prices jumped six-tenths of 1% in March, which is a lot for a month, the biggest increase in almost nine years, in fact. Inflation worries have concerned people in the financial markets in recent months. But both the Biden administration and the Federal Reserve say this is just not that big a deal in the long term. Let's talk it through with NPR's Scott Horsley. Scott, good morning. SCOTT HORSLEY, BYLINE: Good morning, Steve. INSKEEP: Which products or items are getting more expensive? HORSLEY: The March price hikes were pretty broad-based. We saw higher prices for recreation and personal care. You know, as more people are getting vaccinated, there's more demand for outdoor gear, more people getting haircuts maybe. In some cases, that extra demand's going

  • Cinerama Dome Among ArcLight, Pacific Theaters To Close Due To Pandemic Losses

    wncw.org Tuesday, 13 April 2021 19:37:00

    ArcLight Cinemas and Pacific Theaters said late Monday they are ceasing operations, closing all of their roughly 300 screens mostly found in California. None has inspired more distress among Hollywood notables than the Cinerama Dome on Hollywood's Sunset Boulevard. "After shutting our doors more than a year ago," the company said in a statement, "today we must share the difficult and sad news that Pacific will not be reopening its ArcLight Cinemas and Pacific Theaters locations." "This was not the outcome anyone wanted," the statement continues, "but despite a huge effort that exhausted all potential options, the company does not have a viable way forward." The Cinerama Dome's concrete geodesic dome was built to house the wide, curved screen required for single-lens Cinerama. It opened in 1963 with the premiere of Stanley Kramer's extravagantly wide-screen comedy It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World — with its swinging hook-and-ladder finale. The Dome has since hosted dozens of Hollywood
