  • Obama vetoes 9-11 bill; possible override by Congress looms

    President Barack Obama rejected a bill Friday that would have allowed the families of 9-11 victims to sue the government of Saudi Arabia, arguing it undermined national security and setting up the possibility Congress may override his veto for the first time in his presidency. The bill had sailed through both chambers of Congress with bipartisan support, clearing the final hurdle just days before the 15th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. The president said the bill, which doesn't refer specifically to Saudi Arabia, could backfire by opening up the U.S. government and its officials to lawsuits by anyone accusing the U.S. of supporting terrorism, rightly or wrongly.

  • Tulsa officer late to career, had de-escalation training

    The Tulsa police officer accused of manslaughter in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man took a roundabout path toward her dream job of joining law enforcement, with stops as a convenience store clerk, an Air National Guard member and a teaching assistant. Family members and colleagues say Betty Jo Shelby, 42, was an engaged community member, a churchgoer and cool-headed enough to be tapped as a field-training officer even though she didn't join the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office until 2007 and the city's force until 2011. Despite completing de-escalation training, Shelby "reacted unreasonably" when she fatally shot 40-year-old Terence Crutcher on Sept. 16, according to an affidavit prosecutors filed with the first-degree manslaughter charge.

    Pipeline Road at the Perimeter Highway, an intersection on the northern edge of Winnipeg in West St. Paul, Man., has seen a spike recently in road collisions — four crashes in just over three weeks.
