The big story this week happened when a jury convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev: guilty on all 30 counts.
Also this week, Gov. Charlie Baker's MBTA panel found the system in need of major overhaul. The report sparked a debate about reform versus revenue.
And, as the nation absorbs the horrific images of police officer Michael Slager shooting dead Walter Scott as he tried to run away, law enforcement officials in Boston release to the public a video that they say shows a convicted felon shooting a Boston cop in the face last month.
- "An unsustainable operating budget, organizational instability and chronic capital under-investment were just a few of the structural problems cited in the report."
- "Officer Slager fired eight shots, killing Walter Scott. Then, the shaky video shows Slager placing what might be his taser beside Scott’s body — the taser he claimed Scott took from him before the police officer shot him dead."
- "It was important for the United States to demonstrate that we hold fair and open...trials. It was important to show that we do not beat suspects into entering guilty pleas...We do not put defendants into cages inside our courtrooms."
- "Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will officially announce her intention to seek the 2016 Democratic nomination for president on Sunday afternoon, ending years of speculation over her plans to pursue the Oval Office, NPR has learned."
