Lt. Brian Rice, the top Baltimore city police officer suspended following Freddie Gray's death, was hospitalized in April 2012 over concerns about his mental health. These concerns led deputies to confiscate his guns and contact high-ranking police officials. Rice was the cop who initially pursued Gray on a Baltimore street when the man fled. Rice, 41, faces six charges in Gray's death, including manslaughter, second-degree assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment.


Floyd Mayweather outboxed and outmaneuvered Manny Pacquiao to claim a unanimous points victory in the most lucrative boxing match in history Saturday, taking his unblemished professional record to 48-0 and cementing his place as one of the greatest fighters of all time. "I was a smart fighter, I out-boxed him," said Mayweather, shaking off boos from the crowd which was unimpressed with his defensive style. "We did what we had to do tonight. I knew he was going to push me. He had moments in the fight but I kept him on the outside."

Former Sen. Rick Santorum, a longtime culture warrior known for his conservative views on marriage equality and other social issues, said on Saturday than he believes Bruce Jenner when she says she's a woman. "If he says he's a woman, then he's a woman," Santorum said during a roundtable with reporters at the South Carolina Republican Party's convention. "My responsibility as a human being is to love and accept everybody. Not to criticize people for who they are. I can criticize, and I do, for what people do, for their behavior. But as far as for who they are, you have to respect everybody."


A new website from Microsoft, the How Old Robot can guess a person's age and gender from any photograph. "If you're 30 and a smoker, you might be surprised to find that your face age is 42," said Karl Ricanek, a facial recognition software researcher at the University of North Carolina. "There's going to be a lot of integration of this technology in our everyday lives," he said. "Whether it's to unlock our telephones or confine the channels my child can see because it knows 'Oh, there's a young person there now."


Over a span of three decades, baby after baby, born to poor, young black women, was declared dead at a segregated St. Louis hospital. At least one, the now 49-year-old Melanie Gilmore, was not dead. And at least 18 other moms, or their surviving kin, think they were lied to as well. A federal human trafficking analyst is headed to Missouri to investigate claims of a "scheme to steal babies in a systematic and organized fashion for nefarious purposes" at the now-shuttered Homer G. Phillips hospital, attorney Albert Watkins said. read more

The media has found angry mom:

"I'm a no-tolerant mother. Everybody that knows me, know I don't play that. ... He knew he was in trouble. He said when 'I seen you, ma, my instinct was to run.'"

Christopher Booker is not a reputable journalist. He's been misrepresenting science and spreading falsehoods for years:

www.theguardian.com

He claims that asbestos, second-hand smoke and bovine spongiform encephalopathy are not dangerous. If you're basing your scientific knowledge on his expertise, I hope you don't try to prove it by eating meat from a mad cow.
