The Black pastor who was arrested

Michael Jennings, the Black pastor arrested while watering his neighbor's flowers, has filed a federal lawsuit against the police officers involved in his detainment.

The lawsuit also names the city of Childersburg, which oversees the police department that arrested Jennings, as a defendant.

Jennings, a longtime pastor at Vision of Abundant Life Church in Sylacauga, Ala., is represented by national civil rights attorney, Harry Daniels, and attorneys Bethaney Embry Jones, Joi Travis and Roderick Van Daniels. They hosted a news conference Saturday with the Alabama NAACP to discuss the case.

"I'm here for accountability, and I'm here for justice," Jennings said.

The lawsuit says Jennings is suffering with emotional distress and "significant PTSD type symptoms" that include nightmares and flashbacks.


Jan. 6 rioter pleads guilty to assault on news media

Rioter admits attack on news mediaThe first rioter from the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol to be charged with attacking a member of the news media pleaded guilty Friday to felony counts of assault on law enforcement and assault on a news photographer. Prosecutors estimated that he faces a possible sentence of 33 to 41 months in prison.

Shane Jason Woods, 44, drove to Washington from Auburn, Ill., where he owns Auburn Heating and Air. Court records show he was captured on video and in photographs on multiple occasions, on both the west and east sides of the Capitol, over a period of several hours. He was arrested on a federal complaint in June 2021, and indicted on eight felony assault and disorderly conduct charges last March.

Woods is one of about 11 rioters who have been charged with assaults on members of the news media or destroying their equipment. Reporters and photographers who were stationed in one area behind bike racks were overwhelmed by rioters at one point, leaving behind valuable equipment that was then destroyed.


South Carolina senators reject a near-total abortion ban

SC Sen. Tom DavisSouth Carolina senators rejected a ban on almost all abortions Thursday in a special session called in the aftermath of the U.S. Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade after five Republicans, including all the chamber's women, refused to support it.

The 30 Republicans in the 46-member chamber had a majority to pass the ban, but did not have the extra votes to end a threatened filibuster by Republican Sen. Tom Davis.

Davis, the chief of staff for former Gov. Mark Sanford before being elected to the Senate in 2009, was joined by the three Republican women in the Senate, a fifth GOP colleague and all Democratic senators to oppose the proposed ban.


'Hearts are broken': Suspects in custody after 2 Georgia deputies killed in 'ambush'

2 Deputies ambushed in Georgia

Two suspects were taken into custody Thursday after a pair of Georgia sheriff's deputies were killed while serving a warrant in what authorities described as an "ambush."

Two deputies from the Cobb County Sheriff's Office, just northwest of Atlanta, were attempting to serve a warrant at a residence for failure to appear for theft by deception, Sheriff Craig D. Owens said at a Thursday news conference.

After the deputies knocked and rang the doorbell of the home, they got no answer and headed back to their car, Owens said. As they got back into the car, another vehicle arrived at the home. When the deputies exited their car and began talking to the suspects, who were not identified during the press conference, shots were fired.
