A North Charleston, South Carolina police officer who shot and killed a driver he had stopped last weekend for a broken tail light will be charged with murder after police received a video of the incident. The officer was identified as Patrolman 1st Class Michael Thomas Slager. North Charleston mayor Keith Summey, speaking at a news conference Monday, reminded people one officer who made a bad decision should not be a reflection of the entire force: Out of 343 police officers, this is a bad decision by one, he said.

After weeks of dramatic and emotionally wrenching testimony, jurors in the Boston Marathon bombing trial began deliberations on Tuesday. Both the prosecution and defense agree that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev participated in the bombings and two gunfights with police. But, his attorney insists Dzhokhar was just following his older brother Tamerlan and should, therefore, get life in prison rather than a death sentence. Aaron keeping an eye on things in Boston – including the Aaron Hernandez murder trial and juror deliberations in that case as well.

Sen. Rand Paul is expected to announce his candidacy for the presidency at an event in Louisville on Tuesday. He previewed his key themes in a video that he released on Sunday, highlighting his outreach to minority voters, his filibuster in 2013 of John Brennan’s nomination as CIA director, and his libertarian policies. Similar to Cruz, Rand has made a name for himself in Washington with some of his actions as senator, along with things he has said.

As he planted a backpack containing a bomb near a group of children, Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev made a coldblooded decision aimed at punishing America for its wars in Muslim countries, federal prosecutor Aloke Chakravarty told the jury during closing arguments Monday at Tsarnaev’s death penalty trial. “This was a cold, calculated terrorist act. This was intentional. It was bloodthirsty.” Defense attorney Judy Clarke countered by arguing, as she did at the trial’s outset, that Tsarnaev took part in the attack but did so under the malevolent influence of his now-dead older brother, Tamerlan. The jury is expected to begin deliberations on Tuesday morning.

The agreement on a framework for a nuclear program deal with Iran was touted as historic by President Obama last week. Even so, many in Congress are not so sure, and want to make sure they have a chance to comb thru the details before agreeing to lift any sanctions. Sen. Bob Corker, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has drawn up a bill that will give Congress a 60-day review period once an agreement is signed, and says he is close to getting enough votes to make the bill veto-proof.
