Police say that Ford had attempted to remove a gun from an officer's holster on Monday when he was shot and killed, which differs from accounts by the family of the man. Details may differ, circumstances of their deaths may remain unknown, but the outrage that erupted after the Aug. 9 fatal shooting of the unarmed, black 18-year-old by a white officer in Ferguson, Missouri, has become a rallying cry in protests over police killings across the nation.

The chairs of both the House and Senate intelligence committees prodded President Barack Obama on Sunday, Aug. 31, 2014, to take decisive action against the growing threats from Islamic State militants on U.S. soil. "His foreign policy is in absolute free-fall," Rogers said of President Barack Obama. In a separate interview Sunday California Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein who heads the Senate intelligence panel said Obama efforts to combat Islamic state group are perhaps "too cautious." "This is a group of people who are extraordinarily dangerous," she said. "And they'll kill with abandon."  (AP Photo/J.
