The latest on the Dallas shooting investigation


Some 150 people were arrested during protests in Baton Rouge over the weekend.

The protest started at roughly 9 a.m. Monday morning and ended mid-afternoon when a thunderstorm pushed through the area.

"I think the last 22 months have shown that there are people across the country that believe that this country can be better than it is today", Mckesson said.

Baton Rouge Police Chief Carl Dabadie Jr. said Friday that his department was striving to avoid a "military-style response" to the protests.

The cops also threatened to arrest journalists on July 10 who did not have credentials that met the approval of police (the state) - a possible violation of the First Amendment.

The owner of the store where Alton Sterling was shot and killed last week is suing police officers with the Baton Rouge Police Department and the city of Baton Rouge for illegal seizure and detainment following the incident, according to a lawsuit filed Monday with the 19th Judicial District Court.

While Moore said he has "no direct connection to either officer involved in this shooting", he said that legal precedent requires him to look beyond any direct ties and to consider whether there may be any conscious unconscious factors that could impact an impartial trial.

After the interstate arrests, police stopped protesters walking in the road on Grand Avenue early Sunday and arrested 52 people.

It's crucial not only to mobilize protesters and families of victims of police brutality, but to also cultivate and fund the futures of black youth who are dedicated to activism, art, and creating justice and freedom for all black people.

Louisiana's attorney general says he won't have access to the federal investigation on the Alton Sterling shooting until it's completed and a decision has been made on potential federal charges.

NBC News says the woman in the photo is Ieshia Evans, and she is a 28-year-old woman with a 5-year-old son.

After a lengthy standoff, more police in full riot gear moved in, pinning some of the protesters as others fled. She accused police of acting in an "inflammatory" manner and said an officer had pointed a rifle at her and other protesters before her arrest.

On Sunday, St. Paul police arrested another 52 demonstrators for marching on Grand Avenue. Twenty-two of them are New Orleans residents, while seven are from Baton Rouge.

Baton Rouge's District Attorney has announced he will recuse himself from the investigation into the shooting of Alton Sterling, 37, by police, due to his relationship with one of officer's parents. I kept telling them this is my property, please do not do that, I live here.
