REUTERS/Henry NichollsLondon's police corruptly concealed failings in the investigation of the 1987 murder of private investigator Daniel Morgan, an 8-year inquiry into the handling of the case has found. While the report by an independent panel found no fresh evidence of police involvement in the murder itself, chair of the panel, Nuala O'Loan, was scathing about how the case had been handled. "We believe that concealing or denying failings, for the sake of an organization's public image is dishonesty, on the part of the organisation, for reputational benefit. "Daniel Morgan deserved far far better than this, as did his family," Patel told lawmakers.

Louie Gohmert gave $5,500 to an anti-gay and antisemitic pastor, per The Daily Beast. GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas reportedly donated $5,500 to an anti-gay and antisemitic pastor last December, but his office says that situation occurred due to a name mix-up, according to The Daily Beast. Sermons listed on his IMDb page include antisemitic titles such as "The Jews Are Our Enemies" and "The Jews Killed Jesus." Aryeh Tuchman, the associate director at the ADL's Center on Extremism, told The Daily Beast that Anderson's movement now includes 30 houses of worship. When The Daily Beast reached out to Anderson, his wife Zsuzsanna said that he was unavailable, but she confirmed that neither she nor her husband personally knew or supported Gohmert.

Daniel Morgan was found murdered in a car park behind a pub in south-east London on March 10, 1987. He was killed with an axe which was found embedded in the back of his head. O'Loan was scathing about how the case had been handled - and about the various mistakes, poor police work and avarice of many officers concerned. She said opportunities to gather evidence were irretrievably lost during the first investigation, while forensic work in a second investigation was described by a senior officer as "pathetic". "We believe that concealing or denying failings, for the sake of an organization's public image is dishonesty, on the part of the organisation, for reputational benefit.

REUTERS/Elijah Nouvelage/File PhotoDemocrats and their allies are mounting a major effort to educate Georgia voters on sweeping new voting restrictions passed by the state’s Republican-led legislature ahead of next year’s crucial U.S. Senate and congressional races. Warnock and Abrams are wildly popular among Georgia’s Black voters, who account for a third of the state’s electorate. Georgia’s Black Christians, meanwhile, have shifted into battle mode. A draft of the plan, seen by Reuters, calls on each church to form a turnout committee to educate congregants about SB 202 and the importance of voting early.

U.S. President Joe Biden speaks with a priest outside St. Joseph on the Brandywine Catholic Church, in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S. May 30, 2021. As the second Catholic to serve as U.S. president, Biden, a Democrat, has alarmed some church leaders by supporting same-sex marriage and abortion rights, views they say are antithetical to church teachings. In 2004, the conference published a statement that said individual bishops could decide whether to deny Communion to Catholic politicians who support abortion rights. Dempsey said he believes the bishops' conference should take a stand against Biden and other politicians who support abortion rights or risk losing credibility among Catholics. A Vatican official, Cardinal Luis Ladaria, wrote to the conference in May urging caution on the debate over politicians' abortion views and Communion, saying it could become a "source of discord," Catholic News Service reported.

Ned Beatty, the indelible character actor whose first film role as a genial vacationer brutally raped by a backwoodsman in 1972′s “Deliverance” launched him on a long, prolific and accomplished career, has died. After years in regional theater, Beatty was cast in “Deliverance” as Bobby Trippe, the happy-go-lucky member of a male river-boating party terrorized by backwoods thugs. Between movies, Beatty worked often in TV and theater. Ned Thomas Beatty was born in 1937 in Louisville, Ky., and raised in Lexington, where he joined the Protestant Disciples of Christ Christian Church. Boorman told him the role was cast, but changed his mind after seeing Beatty audition.

Churchgoers in a seaside resort in England say they have been left “gobsmacked” when U.S. President Joe Biden and the first lady Jill Biden dropped in for a Sunday service. The Bidens are in Cornwall, southwest England, where the U.S. president is attending a Group of Seven wealthy democracies summit. On Sunday morning, ahead of the summit’s conclusion, they were seen attending mass at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in St. Ives. “It’s quite amazing, we went into the church and they took some details from us and I thought this is a bit unusual. I’m not sure I will ever get over this moment completely.”Gayle Wood, 63, said Biden appeared to make a “very generous donation” to the church before leaving.

The report was agnostic on the merits of clearing the park itself, however, merely finding that it violated neither the law nor standing policy. The inspector general report to date has received only a fraction of the media coverage that greeted the original story. It is by now a cliché to say “This is how we got Trump,” but that’s only because this distrust was surely a factor. The conservative response has not been confined to prudent skepticism about the media in general, of course. It has also bred credulity about alternative news sources with lower standards that make favorable and, in the worst cases, fraudulent claims about Trump.

So what are young Black pastors doing to engage with young people and perhaps lead them back to the church? Now, at 22, she's one in a growing group of "nones," young adults who are religiously unaffiliated. Pamela Price / Congdon Street Baptist ChurchLester said he also thinks young Black adults are simply choosing to socialize in other shared places, such as coffee shops, gyms or online. The same goes for organizing efforts, which had long been central missions for some Black churches. Black churches' role in social action has included serving as stops along the Underground Railroad and educating Black students before segregation was abolished in schools.

Park Police officers who forcibly cleared protesters from Lafayette Square near the White House last year were acting on a prior plan unrelated to the June 1 appearance there by then President Donald Trump, according to an Interior Department inspector general report. Contrary to instructions from Park Police commanders, Metropolitan Police officers also fired tear gas at protesters as they moved away from the park and Bureau of Prison officials fired pepper spray, the inspector general found. A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said officers deployed tear gas in response to assaults from protesters. Communication issues also led to confusion, the report found, as not all the protesters could hear officers’ orders to disperse. The Park Police and Secret Service also didn’t use a shared radio channel to communicate, according to the report.

Washington, DC's Lafayette Park was not cleared in June 2020 for a Trump photo op, the Interior Department watchdog says. Trump walked through the park after the plans to clear protesters were already in motion. Law enforcement officials cleared Washington, DC's Lafayette Park to put up fencing — not to enable former President Donald Trump's now-infamous photo op at St. John's Church in June 2020, an internal watchdog for the Interior Department concluded in a report released Wednesday. He was then photographed holding up a Bible outside St. John's Episcopal Church. The controversial photo op drew sharp criticism from Episcopal leaders, and created the perception that Trump had the park cleared for his benefit.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will also release non-binding guidance on how other businesses can protect workers, Walsh told a hearing of the U.S. House of Representatives Education and Labor Committee. During the Trump administration, OSHA rejected calls by unions, Democrats and worker advocates for a rule that would apply to most employers. Instead, the agency issued a series of non-binding guidance documents tailored to different industries. He said the guidance would apply to the treatment of workers who have not received COVID-19 vaccines.

WASHINGTON — A federal watchdog said on Wednesday that the United States Park Police had been planning to clear protesters from a park near the White House well before they learned that President Donald J. Trump was going to walk through the area last year. The burst of violence in Lafayette Square, which came at the height of the racial justice protests last summer, became one of the defining moments of the Trump presidency. Protesters in the shadow of the White House were pushed back with smoke, flash grenades and chemical spray deployed by shield-bearing riot officers and mounted police. The 30-page report by the Interior Department’s inspector general offers new details about the Park Police’s decision-making. And the sequence of events described in the report suggests that the operation to clear the area turned violent soon after the Park Police were informed of Mr. Trump’s arrival.

For a White House team that came into office promising to be more compassionate and effective on immigration policy, there is tremendous political risk in failing on either front. And the White House has been slow to respond to a major spike in migration. "The truth of the matter is: Nothing has changed," Biden said from the East Room of the White House on March 25. I'd be happy to offer this legislation to Vice President Harris or President Biden as a solution to the crisis on our southern border." “By handing Vice President Harris the assignment of dealing with what amounts to an intractable problem, Biden is certainly complicating her future.

REUTERS/Jennifer GauthierCanadians disappointed that Pope Francis did not apologise for the Catholic Church’s role in a scandal surrounding a former school for indigenous students should give his message “a second chance” because his sorrow and shock are sincere, a Canadian cardinal said. In comments on Sunday, the pope stopped short of the direct apology some Canadians had demanded. "I really hope that they give Pope Francis' message a second chance because it says an awful lot and it expresses his feelings, his sorrow, his shock," Czerny said in a telephone interview. After the pope spoke, some Canadian indigenous leaders and school survivors said they were disappointed and that the Church needed to do much more. Francis was elected pope 17 years after the last schools were closed and has already apologised for the Church's role in colonialism in the Americas.

Coach Steve Corica admitted he was powerless to stop his Sydney FC team quitting this year's Asian Champions League as the line-up for the continental competition was reconfigured on Sunday after Australian teams pulled out this week. As a result of the withdrawal, the A-League's finals series will now be played at the same time as the Asian Champions League group phase and Corica stressed he was focused on his side's semi-final next week. "It's an important time of year for us," he said after Saturday's 2-0 win over Brisbane. "I just leave (the Asian Champions League decision) to higher authorities than myself. "Obviously we want to play in the Champions League, it's what we finish first or second for, to be involved in a good competition like that, but it doesn't look like it's going to work out this year for us."
