Paul Manafort’s Ambition Set the Stage for His Downfall

“He could have kept running campaigns for the Yanukovychs of the world, and nobody would have cared,” said Hector T. Hoyos, one of Mr. Manafort’s closest friends and business partners. “But he took on the Trump campaign because he believed that the country was going down the wrong path, and he wanted to make a difference,” Mr. Hoyos said of Mr. Manafort, who is the godfather of Mr. Hoyos’s daughter.Had things not gone south, Mr. […]

‘My Stomach Dropped’: Harrowing Night for Twin Brothers of the Las Vegas Police

Branden Clarkson, meanwhile, was at the police department’s command post, helping direct officers and keeping track of who was where on a whiteboard.Finally, a lieutenant came up to him and said, “Hey, your brother is O.K.”“And I’m like, O.K., cool,” he said.But his brother was not exactly O.K. “Then she said: ‘He’s at Valley Hospital, you know, he got shot in the neck,’” Sergeant Clarkson recalled.“And my stomach dropped and I’m like, ‘Oh my god.’”On the whiteboard, under the names of the injured, he wrote his brother’s name.How a pair of 33-year-old twins wound up in the midst of one of the worst mass shootings in American history is a reflection of the incomprehensible scale of the tragedy. All hands were on deck, and since policing is a family business, it was not surprising that both brothers would be called into action.But the brothers’ roles could hardly have been more different. One brother carried out careful plans he helped devise. […]

A Burst of Gunfire, a Pause, Then Carnage in Las Vegas That Would Not Stop

VideoMass Shooting in Las VegasAt least 59 people were killed and hundreds injured when a gunman opened fire at a country music festival near the Mandalay Bay casino.By CAMILLA SCHICK, DAVE HORN and CHRIS CIRILLO on Publish Date October 2, 2017.Photo by David Becker/Getty Images.Watch in Times Video »embed LAS VEGAS — At first, it sounded like fireworks — a loud, crackling noise. Then the awful realization began to spread, unevenly, through the huge crowd.It dawned on people when they heard screams, when they saw bloodied victims collapse around them, or when others stampeded for the exits, trampling some of the people in their way.Many of the terrified concertgoers followed their instincts and crouched or lay flat, not realizing that they remained exposed to a gunman lodged high above them. Others surged into surrounding streets and buildings, leaving behind debris lost in the panic — drink cups, shoes, and cellphones that kept ringing for hours, as relatives and friends tried to reach their loved ones and find out if they were safe.By sunrise on Monday, the staggering toll at an outdoor country music festival on a cool desert night was becoming clear: at least 59 people killed, the police said, and 527 injured, either by gunfire or in the flight to safety.A lone gunman perched on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino had smashed the windows of his hotel suite with a hammer, taken aim at a crowd of 22,000 people, and committed one of the deadliest mass shootings in American history. Late on Monday, law enforcement officials said they still had no idea what the motive was.The gunman had 17 firearms, including a handgun, in his suite, according to Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. And when the police searched the shooter’s house on Monday, “we retrieved in excess of 18 additional firearms, some explosives, and several thousand rounds of ammo,” Sheriff Lombardo said […]

As White Nationalist in Charlottesville Fired, Police ‘Never Moved’

Officials have insisted that no “stand down” order was issued, and a state police spokeswoman said troopers did not hear the shot. But many people suspect the inaction was deliberate, because just a month earlier, the police were heavily criticized for responding harshly at a Ku Klux Klan rally where anti-Klan protesters were sprayed with tear gas and arrested.On the day of the “Unite the Right” rally, Aug. 12, only eight arrests were made, even with 125 local officers, hundreds of National Guard troops, the state police and neighboring police agencies present. Those arrested included James A. Fields, the driver who has been charged with murder in the death of Heather D. Heyer.Investigators are also close to making arrests in the case of DeAndre Harris, 20, a local teacher’s aide and African-American who was beaten with a metal pipe and slabs of wood in a parking garage just a few yards from Police Headquarters, the city manager, Maurice Jones, said.The police chief and mayor declined requests to be interviewed.Mr. Jones said the police had developed two “tactical mobile force contingency plans” that were to be used as “quick responders” to skirmishes and fights that were popping up throughout downtown. The officers were instructed to “respond to fights directly” and to make arrests in teams and squads, he said.“We saw plenty of video of officers stepping in to de-escalate situations,” Mr. Jones said.He stressed that the city had tried to prevent the rally, but that a federal judge had ordered the city to grant the permit. But even a member of the City Council asked the city manager and the police chief why there was an “apparent unwillingness of officers to directly intervene during overt assaults.”The city did not use a number of security measures recommended by the state police, said Brian Moran, Virginia’s secretary of public safety and homeland security, including a ban on weapons and sticks of all kinds.

Commander of Naval Fleet Relieved of Duty After Collisions

The admiral’s removal comes as the Navy is preparing to conduct an extremely rare suspension of ship operations worldwide for a day or two in the next week to review safety and operational procedures. More broadly, Navy officials are also investigating the role that training, manning and crew communications may have played in the accidents.Divers have found remains of missing American sailors in the flooded compartments of the Navy destroyer John S. McCain, which collided with an oil tanker on Monday off the coast of Singapore, Admiral Swift said.He declined to say how many bodies had been located in the ship, which is docked at Changi Naval Base in Singapore. He also said that the Malaysian Navy, which is part of the search effort, had reported recovering a body at sea that might be one of the 10 missing sailors.PhotoVice Adm. Joseph P. […]
