SPD releases footage of fatal encounter
The Spokane Police Department released body camera footage of a fatal encounter in January with a man holding a knife and running from officers. The footage shows officers chasing Dexter Dumarce for several blocks, commanding him to stop and drop his knife. As Dumarce approaches cars stopped at a light near Fifth  and Walnut, Officer Ryan Jamieson fires several times, killing Dumarce. (Spokesman-Review)

Lawsuit over dick pics

Former St. Louis officer charged with murder
On the third anniversary of the police shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, a former St. Louis cop is on trial for first-degree murder. The ex-officer, who waived his right to a jury trial, awaits a judge's decision later this month. (Riverfront Times)

'Fire and fury'
“It’s really kind of sad that we’ve developed no policy for a conflict that would assuredly result in a war that would see a few million killed,” University of Washington professor Don Hellmann says of the Trump administration's handling of the volatile situation in North Korea. Earlier this week, President Trump said North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's threats on the U.S. territory of Guam would be met with "fire and fury." (Spokesman-Review)

Kim is reportedly planning to launch ballistic missiles to teach Trump a lesson. (New York Times)
