Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was convicted on all charges Wednesday in the Boston Marathon bombing by a federal jury that now must decide whether the 21-year-old former college student should be executed. Tsarnaev folded his arms, fidgeted and looked down at the defense table as he listened to one guilty verdict after another on all 30 counts against him, including conspiracy and deadly use of a weapon of mass destruction. Seventeen of those counts are punishable by death. The trial phase to determine the actual punishment begins Monday.

A white South Carolina police officer was caught on video shooting to death an unarmed black man … who was running away from him … after a traffic stop. With the recent shootings of black males by white police officers in cities including New York, Cleveland and Ferguson, MO, the thorny question is whether race affected the officer’s judgment. Brad reports what research indicates regarding this phenomena, which paints a conflicting picture. How prevalent to researchers feel the problem is, and what they feel are the best ways to address the problem.

While not an official meeting, we could potentially see a historic handshake between President Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro later this week. The two leaders will have a chance to talk at the Summit of the Americas in Panama. This would be the first meeting between an American and Cuban president in sixty years. President Obama first heads off for a stop in Jamaica on Tuesday, before heading to Panama. And questions surrounding last year’s hack of the White House by Russians, still more questions than answers
