Kissimmee Police Shooting Leaves Two Officers Dead

The shooting occurred during what Chief O’Dell called a “consensual encounter to get out and check.”PhotoChief Jeffrey O’Dell of the Kissimmee Police spoke during a news conference early Saturday.Credit WESH.com“Nobody was being placed in handcuffs,” the chief said. “If all things checked out, the officers would have been on their way.”Chief O’Dell said officers are often called to North Kissimmee. Residents, he said, “get tired of putting up with some of the drug dealing and nonsense that goes on in the neighborhood.”He added, “And we’re doing our part to try to keep them safe, and then we have this tonight.”In a statement, Gov. Rick Scott said: “Today, I join every Floridian to honor these law enforcement officers, their brothers and sisters in uniform, and their families,” adding that the episode should “be a constant reminder of the sacrifice of those who serve to keep us safe.”President Trump weighed in on Twitter early Saturday morning: “My thoughts and prayers are with the @KissimmeePolice and their loved ones. We are with you!”The Kissimmee shooting was the first of two attacks on Florida police officers Friday night. Two sheriff’s officers in Jacksonville were wounded when they responded to a call about a man making threats to hurt himself and others, officials said.The gunman, identified as Derrick Brabham, 25, fired at them with a semiautomatic rifle around 11 p.m., Sheriff Mike Williams said at a news conference on Saturday.Continue reading the main storyThe police believe Mr. Brabham, who was killed during the altercation, had been drinking, Sheriff Williams said.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storySign Up for the Race/Related NewsletterJoin a deep and provocative exploration of race with a diverse group of New York Times journalists.Thank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Stephen Bannon’s Path from Breitbart to the West Wing, and Back

Steve Bannon, Back on the Outside, Prepares His Enemies List

“The president was buoyed to election by capturing the hearts and minds of a populist, nationalist movement,” Alex Marlow, Breitbart’s editor in chief, said Friday evening. “A lot of it was anti-Wall Street, anti-corporatist, anti-establishment. And now we’re seeing that a lot of these guys remaining inside the White House are exactly the opposite of what we told you you were going to get.”Mr. Bannon’s long enemies list will include anyone he deems hostile to the nationalist, conservative agenda that he viewed himself as the guardian of in the White House. And his most personal causes will involve some the biggest fights that lie ahead between President Trump and Congress.VideoBannon Ousted: Inside His Controversial TenureStephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s outgoing chief strategist, has been criticized as being emblematic of the far-right nationalism that turned violent in Virginia last weekend.By A.J.

After Backing Alt-Right in Charlottesville, A.C.L.U. Wrestles With Its Role

“I won’t be a fig leaf for Nazis,” a member of the A.C.L.U. of Virginia board, Waldo Jaquith, posted on Twitter, announcing that he was resigning from the organization. Among his parting messages to the organization was, “Don’t defend Nazis to allow them to kill people.”This year has been a banner one for the civil liberties group, which is expected by some on the left to serve as a legal bulwark against some of the Trump administration’s policies. Indeed, the A.C.L.U. helped secure the first court ruling against the travel ban.Membership in the group has almost quadrupled, and donations online have reached $83 million since the election, when, in a typical period, about $5 million or less might be expected, a spokeswoman for the A.C.L.U., Stacy Sullivan, said.But the group’s defense of the Charlottesville rally has crystallized a recurring challenge for the organization: how to pursue its First Amendment advocacy, even for hate-based groups, without alienating its supporters.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storySign Up for the Race/Related NewsletterJoin a deep and provocative exploration of race with a diverse group of New York Times journalists.Thank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Call to Remove Confederate Statues From Capitol Divides Democrats

Mr. Trump has added fuel to the debate about such monuments, writing on Twitter on Thursday, “Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments.”On Wednesday night, Senator Cory Booker, Democrat of New Jersey, said he would introduce a bill to remove Confederate statues from the Capitol. But with the president plunging into the longstanding debate over the appropriate place of Civil War-era symbols in contemporary society, Mr. Schumer argued on Thursday that Mr. Trump was trying to shift the conversation away from his own response to the violence in Charlottesville.PhotoFrom left, statues of Alexander Stephens, vice president of the Confederacy and Robert E. Lee, a Confederate general, are on display in the Capitol.Credit Justin T. Gellerson for The New York Times“While it is critical that we work towards the goal of Senator Cory Booker’s legislation,” Mr. Schumer said, “we must continue to denounce and resist President Trump for his reprehensible actions.”A spokesman for Ms. […]

Black Voices on Turmoil in Charlottesville: ‘The World We Live In’

“I’m not surprised,” said Harold Harris, 41, a barber in the Sweet Auburn neighborhood in Atlanta. “This is the world we live in; this is the country that we live in. We have a lot of racism embedded in our country, in our history.”Sitting in a barber’s chair, London Balbosa, 22, a college student, said he did not feel he faced as much racism growing up as previous generations of African-Americans. But he said he has recently noticed a rise in acts of racism, and saw fear among whites that blacks were coming into their own and into power in America.“Instead of waiting until something happens to want to talk about the issue, I think we should be focusing on publicizing ways to speak out,” Mr. Balbosa said.Just around the corner at the Martin Luther King Jr […]
