    West Central Tribune ^ | 7/20/2016 | Duluth News Tribune
    A federal lawsuit filed by the parent of a Lincoln Park Middle School student alleges his son's 2015 suicide was the result of "severe and pervasive harassment" — and the Duluth school district's failure to stop it. Todd Seehus is suing the Duluth school district, its school board and former and current administrators at the school because of their alleged disregard of complaints about students bullying Tristan Seehus, 13, who killed himself in February 2015. Tristan was harassed verbally and physically because of his perceived sexual orientation or gender expression, according to the complaint, filed Friday in U.S. District Court....

The Washington Post reports the police officers were providing security for a Minnesota home game on Saturday when the shirts and and some player comments prompted them to quit. The president of the Minneapolis Police Federation defended their walkout Monday and said all other officers may do the same.

    Black Lives Matter St. Paul plans to demonstrate at the Rosedale shopping center on Sunday to pressure the city of Falcon Heights into terminating its contract with St. Anthony police, the department responsible for Philando Castile’s death during a traffic stop last week. The 1 p.m. demonstration will be held at an undisclosed location inside the mall, so authorities won’t be able to fully prepare for it, organizers said. “Lets shut it down,” read the post on the group’s Facebook page. “lets hit them where it hurt$.” Activists warned those planning to attend the protest not to bring signs, just...

Mayor Chris Coleman characterized the demonstration as a riot after it turned violent, leaving 21 officers injured. “These charges appear to be based on the actions of what most parties, including a St. Paul police spokesperson, agree were outside agitators,” said ACLU Minnesota’s executive director, Charles Samuelson, in a written statement Tuesday

    A man accused of throwing rocks and construction debris at officers during a protest Saturday night is Philando Castile’s cousin. Hunter is charged with two counts of felony rioting. Twenty-one officers were injured during the overnight protests that shut down Interstate 94 and turned violent when people started throwing things at officers. Another 46 other people charged in the case are facing gross misdemeanor charges. His attorneys argued he be released from jail so he could attend his cousin’s funeral later this week. A judge agreed to release Hunter, but under supervision of a court-ordered monitoring program pending the outcome...

    It was very appropriate that on Friday, the day after the massacre of five Dallas police officers, The New York Times devoted nearly the whole top half of its front page to four enormous photos of the death of Philando Castile, a black motorist killed by a Minnesota police officer. Of course, the paper was printed prior to the Dallas murders; and even The New York Times might not have so prominently featured the Minnesota killing on its front page had the Dallas murders occurred a few hours earlier.

Some of the blowback was coming from within the organization. The NRA is facing internal division as its members argue that the group did not do enough to defend gun owners’ rights by speaking out on behalf of Philando Castile of Falcon Heights, Minn., who was shot to death during a traffic stop. Castile had a valid permit to carry a gun. He also reportedly informed the officer who shot him that he was armed in...

    There remains much that we don’t know about this — the tragic shooting of Mr. Castile, a school cafeteria worker, during a traffic stop in Minnesota — so the point here is not that a new narrative has been definitively established. But there are key elements of the story that are now credibly contradicted by emerging evidence. Jenn Jacques at Bearing Arms has an excellent summary of them. Readers are familiar with the original narrative from Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, who broadcast heartbreaking, live phone video of Castile after he was shot. The policeman stopped Castile, the driver, for a...

Reynolds claimed, in the video she took of Castile as he laid dying, that they were pulled over for a broken tail light.

Castile, who was about to turn 33, was killed Wednesday during a traffic stop in Falcon Heights, a suburb of the Twin Cities. He died at a hospital after the incident, which occurred about 9 p.m. (10 p.m. ET) Wednesday.
