Charlotte Police Shooting: Protests Erupt After Officer Kills Man:

Protests erupted in North Carolina after an officer fatally shot one man while serving a warrant for a different person at an apartment complex in Charlotte.

Crowds gathered near the complex Tuesday night, chanting “no justice, no peace!” and carrying signs that said “Black Lives Matter.”
Some threw water bottles and rocks at officers working to control the protesters.

Brangelina Split: Don’t Play Blame Game:

After weeks of tabloid speculation, the announcement came Tuesday that Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from husband of two years (and partner for 11-plus years) Brad Pitt. And the speculation on what went wrong has inevitably been closely followed by the related question of who is to blame?

The trouble with that question, though, is that it completely overlooks the reality of most marriages.
Rumors of the Hollywood couple’s impending split had actually been circulating for months, with tabloids fueling the speculation by peddling sensationalized or unsubstantiated rumors such as Hollywood Lifereporting as early as March that the pair had been fighting due to issues over Jolie’s alleged “insane jealousy.” In May, Radar Online ran a headline that Pitt was “caught kissing” actress Lizzy Caplan on the set of their latest film, Allied.

Samsung Won’t Be The Last To Have Exploding Batteries

Samsung (SSNLF) has endured a string of brutal headlines since it first issued a massive global recall of the Galaxy Note 7, citing “battery cell issues” that can cause the device to catch fire — and possibly explode.

While the recall may damage Samsung’s reputation and has already hurt its stock, the company isn’t the first to be upended by its batteries — and it probably won’t be the last.

Just this year, HP (HPQ) and Sony (SNE) have recalled computer batteries for fire hazards, and about 500,000 hoverboards were recalled due to a risk of “catching fire and/or exploding,” according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Tulsa Police Shooting Investigated By Justice Department:

From different angles, the videos show the same scene.

An unarmed black man walks on a Tulsa, Oklahoma, road with his hands in the air. Police officers follow closely behind him as he approaches his vehicle. He stands beside the car, then falls to the ground after one officer pulls the trigger.
Now 40-year-old Terence Crutcher is dead. Crutcher’s sister is demanding that prosecutors charge the officer who shot him. And the police videos of the incident are fueling criticism about the case.
Federal, state and local authorities are investigating the Friday night shooting.

NY Bombing Suspect Praised Bin Laden In Journal, Prosecutors Say:

The suspect in Saturday’s bombings in New York and New Jersey declared that “the sounds of bombs will be heard in the streets” and praised “Brother Osama Bin Laden” in a journal found on him when he was arrested, authorities said.

Ahmad Rahami was charged Tuesday with four counts in federal court in connection with incidents in Seaside Heights, NJ, and Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood.
Complaints filed in federal court in Manhattan and New Jersey contain details from the investigation and Rahami’s handwritten journal, which was damaged from a shootout with police.
