Malice murder, he said, is akin to a first-degree murder charge in other states. They say Travis McMichael feared for his life when he shot Arbery as they grappled over a shotgun. Bryan was found not guilty of one of the counts of felony murder, as well as a count of aggravated assault. "An almost all-white jury found these white defendants guilty of murder," he said. The verdict in the politicized case sparked outrage from some who agreed with prosecutors' comparisons of Rittenhouse as a vigilante.

Best Buy shoppers can expect to find more high-value merchandise behind locked shelves and a larger security presence in certain stores. He also told NBC News that investigators are looking at how social media appears to have been used to orchestrate organized retail robbery. He said he plans to propose more funding in next fiscal year's budget toward combating organized retail thefts statewide. There's also money to be made by these organized retail rings which can amass millions of dollars worth of products and sell them online or in other countries with the earnings laundered back to the United States. And experts say it remains to be seen what kind of long-term effect factors such as the pandemic and friction between communities and the police will have on organized retail theft and how widespread it may become.

REUTERS/Jim Urquhart/File PhotoNov 24 (Reuters) - The United States Department of Defense late on Tuesday said it will establish a new group to investigate reports on the presence of UFOs in restricted airspace. The formation of the group comes after the government released a report in June, encompassing 144 observations, which said there was a lack of sufficient data to determine the nature of mysterious flying objects. The new group which will succeed the U.S. Navy's Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force, will work to detect, identify and attribute objects, assess and mitigate any associated threats, the Pentagon said. The U.S. military have spent decades deflecting, debunking and discrediting observations of unidentified flying objects and "flying saucers" dating back to the 1940s. read moreRegister now for FREE unlimited access to RegisterReporting by Radhika Anilkumar in Bengaluru; editing by Philippa FletcherOur Standards: The Thomson Reuters Trust Principles.

When people who learned of Goguen's lifestyle threatened to expose it, the lawsuit alleges he tried to have them killed. But Goguen alleges Marshall may have an ulterior motive for throwing accusations his way. Paying and transporting the women to and from Goguen's properties in the Whitefish area amounted to sex-trafficking, the lawsuit alleges. He also paid for a security team to track the friend's whereabouts and harass him and his children, the lawsuit alleges. This isn't the first time that Goguen's sex life and financial dealings have come under scrutiny.

In 2020, many other chains closed stores on Thanksgiving for the first time, includingand. These companies will again close stores on the holiday this year, although none have made permanent changes to their Thanksgiving policies going forward. Stores would use the occasions to rack up most of their holiday sales. But with the growth of online shopping, retailers aren't as reliant on holidays to drive sales anymore.
