Judge declines to remove block on Trump sanctuary cities order

Judge William OrrickA federal judge in California has denied a request by the Trump administration to remove an injunction halting President Donald Trump's executive order on so-called sanctuary cities from being implemented.

On Thursday U.S. District Judge William Orrick III in San Francisco moved to decline a request by the Justice Department to reconsider whether a memo by Attorney General Jeff Sessions narrowed the scope of Trump's executive action and lifted the need for an injunction.

Australian woman killed by police officerMinneapolis police shot and killed an unarmed Australian woman who had called 911 to report a suspicious noise in the alley behind her home.

Justine Damond, 40, was killed Saturday night in Minneapolis' Fulton neighborhood. The police officer who shot her was wearing a body camera, but officials said the camera was not on at the time of the shooting.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that Damond called 911 to report a suspicious noise. Police arrived and Damond went to meet the officers. As she spoke to the officer in the driver seat, the officer in the passenger seat pulled out his gun and shot her. Police have not explained what prompted the shooting. Damond did not have a weapon.

TVNL Comment:  This is totally insane.  No cameras activated to show how this happened. Just so sad and so bizarre.
