Sole Witness Who Heard Cops Announce Themselves in Breonna Taylor Raid Changed His Story
Courtesy of Attorney Ben CrumpThis week, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron made the bombshell announcement that the cops who fatally shot Breonna Taylor would not be charged with killing her, calling their use of force in the March raid "justified to protect themselves."

In that justification, he said that one witness corroborated the three officers' insistence that they knocked and identified themselves at Taylor's Louisville home while executing a search warrant in connection with a narcotics investigation. It contradicted claims from Taylor's boyfriend, Kenny Walker, and 11 other residents, who said they didn't hear the cops announce themselves. Instead, Walker thought he was being burglarized and fired a warning shot that triggered a tragic chain of events.

But, according to documents and audio obtained by VICE News on Saturday, that sole witness initially told investigators days after the March 13 raid that he didn't actually hear officers Brett Hankison, Jonathan Mattingly, and Myles Cosgrove announce themselves.

Just-Nominated Amy Coney Barrett: I'll Be Scalia 2.0
Olivier Douliery/GettyMoments after President Trump formally nominated her to fill the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat on the Supreme Court on Saturday, Judge Amy Coney Barrett promised to "be mindful" of Ginsburg's legacy while also employing the "judicial philosophy" of Justice Antonin Scalia.

"I will be mindful of who came before me. The flag is still flying at half-staff for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg...She was a woman of enormous talent and consequence...Particularly poignant to me was her long friendship with Justice Antonin Scalia, my own mentor. They disagreed fiercely in print without rancor in person," Barrett said.

"[Scalia's] judicial philosophy is mine too. A judge must apply the law as written. Judges are not policy makers. They must be resolute in setting aside any personal policy news they might hold." she said.

These Kids Are Panicked Their Parents Won't Let Them Get COVID-19 Tests
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos GettyAround the end of December, Kai, a high-school student on the West Coast, came down with a bad bug.

"I had a sore throat, a severe cough, pain in my abdominal region, a hard time breathing, and a high fever," Kai, who asked to use only that name for fear of provoking his parents' anger in an already tense relationship, told The Daily Beast.

His worst symptoms eventually faded, but he still "felt extremely weak for weeks after," as he put it. His doctors weren't sure what to make of the illness at the time. But as awareness of COVID-19 spread in the U.S. this spring, Kai and his family agreed that he may have come down with an early case. So he eventually decided he wanted to get an antibody test—"to know if I did have it, and to see if there was some way I could help."

J. Conrad Williams Jr./Newsday via GettyThe possibility that the American population might be able to achieve some kind of herd immunity to the novel coronavirus without a vaccine seems to be slipping away.

Or at least that's the worrying implication of a new study that appeared Friday in The Lancet, a medical journal. Experts said the research clarifies the desperate need for a vaccine, and the risk of letting up on social distancing and other safety measures in the meantime.

How ‘Saturday Night Live' Will Return Live Despite COVID-19
NBCAs Saturday Night Live prepares for its Season 46 premiere on October 3, things will be very different from the norm. Although the venerated sketch show will return live—a departure from the remotely produced "At Home" editions launched earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic—everything about its production has been overhauled to ensure the safety of its cast and crew.

"We don't know that we're going to be able to pull it off," Lorne Michaels told the New York Times. "We're going to be as surprised as everyone else when it actually goes on."

On-site rapid COVID tests are now required before cast and crew enter the building, Michaels told the Times, and the audience will be tested as well. Monday meetings, which once included 40 people, have been winnowed down to three. Larger meetings now take place in a room "the size of an airplane hangar" with everyone distanced and masked. The cast will wear masks until the moment the show goes live.

Inside Louisiana GOP's ‘Crash and Burn' Push to Strip Governor's Powers
Gerald Herbert/APThe state of Louisiana has already suffered through a pair of devastating surges during the coronavirus pandemic. But as Republicans prepare for a special legislative session next week, there is concern they are preparing to take a "kamikaze" approach, as one Democrat put it, that could send the state's fortunes tumbling.

Democrats in the conservative state of Louisiana are bracing for Republicans to attempt to drain Gov. John Bel Edwards' emergency powers during a special legislative session set to start Monday night, as the executive authority of statewide leaders in a time of crisis continues to be a point of friction across party lines.

To Senate Minority Leader Troy Carter "there's a potential for a kamikaze flight," where some lawmakers are "willing to explode and blow the whole state up for frivolous politics."

Yet in the exclusive kindergartens of some of London's most expensive residential districts, where multi-million dollar homes are snapped up in seconds by pushy parents keen to give their pampered offspring every conceivable advantage in life, inadequate baby Mandarin lessons are a very serious subject indeed.

Now, one of these disputes is set to end up in court after parents of children at the idyllic-sounding Bluebell Cottage pre-school in London's tony Kensington after parents accused the school of poor Mandarin teaching, not delivering on the school's promised diet of organic fare and accused the school's director, Sara Brennan, of screaming down the phone at them.
