Video shows NJ police shot man with hands raised

Man shot holding hands up : videoWith the dashboard camera in their cruiser rolling, police pulled a Jaguar over for running a stop sign on a dark New Jersey night. But things suddenly turned tense when one of the officers warned his partner that he could see a gun in the glove compartment.

Screaming over and over "Don't you fucking move!" and "Show me your hands!" at the man in the passenger seat, the officer reached into the car and appeared to remove a silver handgun.

Then, despite being warned repeatedly not to move, the passenger stepped out of the Jaguar, his hands raised about shoulder level.  The officers opened fire, killing him.


NCAA Says It’s Investigating Academic Fraud at 20 Colleges

NCAA probing collegesUNC, you’re not alone. The National Collegiate Athletic Association is investigating allegations of academic misconduct on 20 campuses, the association’s head of enforcement told The Chronicle on Tuesday.

The cases are at various stages, from preliminary inquiry to awaiting a hearing with the Division I Committee on Infractions, and they involve a variety of missteps, including allegations that players received impermissible assistance from professors, academic advisers, or people outside of an athletic department. Eighteen of the cases are in Division I, one is in Division II, and one is in Division III. The official declined to name any of the colleges.

Last month Jonathan Duncan, the NCAA’s vice president for enforcement, said the association was investigating potential academic violations at 12 to 15 colleges.

In an interview on Tuesday, NCAA officials said they were looking at alleged academic misconduct in 20 athletic programs.

Last year, in response to growing concerns over academic fraud, the NCAA established an academic-integrity group within its enforcement department, naming Katherine Sulentic, a former academic adviser at the University of Colorado at Boulder, as its chair. In the coming months, Mr. Duncan said, he plans to bolster that unit.
