    RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. (KTXL) — The family of 14-year-old Jah gathered in the spot outside a 7-Eleven demanding responsibility from the Rancho Cordova police department after their officer, Brian Fowell, is captured on video pinning Jah to the ground and punching him, after busting the teen for having tobacco. The family is asking for accountability for the officer’s actions. “Accountability for using excessive force on a person that’s less than half your size. Accountability for repeatedly throwing punches at him when he’s yelling he’s 14 years old,” said Jah’s mother. New Rancho Cordova Police Chief Kate Adams addressed the video...

    Willie Murphy, who attends the Maplewood YMCA in Rochester, N.Y., on a daily basis, was getting ready for bed around 11:00 p.m. when a man started banging on the door asking for an ambulance, while declaring "I'm sick, I'm sick." “I hear a loud noise,” she told WHAM-TV. “I’m thinking, what the heck was that? The young man is in my home. He broke the door.” The award-winning bodybuilder told the outlet she hid under the cover of night -- picking up the nearest object -- as the thief crept through her home. “I picked up the table, and I...

    Tennis chair umpires are discussing boycotting matches by Serena Williams following her meltdown at the US Open final. The umpires are talking about unionizing following the outburst last weekend. As fallout continues from Saturday’s heated U.S. Open final that saw Naomi Osaka defeat Serena Williams in a match marred by conflict and controversy, tennis umpires are having their say. They’re not pleased with Williams or what they see as a lack of support from the tennis world for chair umpire Carlos Ramos, who was on the receiving end of a heated outburst from the 23-time Grand Slam champion.

    Serena Williams has part of it right. There is a huge double standard for women when it comes to how bad behavior is punished — and not just in tennis. But in her protests against an umpire during the United States Open final on Saturday, she also got part of it wrong. I don’t believe it’s a good idea to apply a standard of “If men can get away with it, women should be able to, too.” Rather, I think the question we have to ask ourselves is this: What is the right way to behave to honor our sport...

    Movie star and potential 2020 presidential candidate Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, has taken exception with how President Trump has dealt with politically outspoken athletes. According to “The Rock,” the players just want “to be heard.” advertisement Johnson told InStyle Magazine, “When the players are kneeling as a last resort, as a desire to be heard, clearly they’re not being heard. It’s an opportunity for our leaders, our president and his staff, to hear them, truly hear them, and not be angry.” Though, Johnson doesn’t merely confine his criticisms to how Trump has handled anthem-protesting NFL players. The actor and former...

I’ll bust your face wide open!” “Dead...

    A companion of William C. Sager Jr. called 911 early Sunday to report Sager was being harassed inside Molly’s Pub by the management and two off-duty police officers.

Then, still in handcuffs and bleeding from the ears and mouth, he was dragged out on the sidewalk, a short distance from the bar. When a friend tried to intervene, he was placed under arrest. Later, when on-duty police responded, they found an internal surveillance tape from Molly’s in the trash nearby. These...
