Dozens Arrested in Protests Over Officer's Acquittal

Police in riot gear made 71 arrests as protesters flooded the streets of Cleveland following the acquittal of a white police officer charged in the shooting deaths of two unarmed black motorists, officials said early Sunday, NBC News reported. In one incident, three people were arrested after an object was hurled through a restaurant window, injuring a female patron, police said in a tweet. At a Sunday morning press conference, officials said 71 people were arrested, including 39 adult men, 16 women and "a few juveniles." The protests — which were largely peaceful — began Saturday morning after police officer Michael Brelo was found not guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the killings of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, who died in a barrage of police gunfire after a high-speed car chase in November 2012. The 31-year-old patrolman mounted the car that Russell and Williams were in and fired into their windshield while standing on the car hood. He was one of 13 officers who fired a total of 137 shots at the car. The Department of Justice announced Saturday it will conduct a probe into the case. Read »

Ireland 1st Country to OK Gay Marriage by Popular Vote

Ireland has become the first country in the world to say yes to same sex marriage by popular vote, NBC News reported. At final count, 62 percent voted in favor of legalizing gay marriage in the country, while 38 percent voted against it. There was a mood of excitement in Dublin as early results showed a high turnout and a strong lead for "Yes" votes. Backers of gay marriage had hoped for high turnout, reflecting strong participation by young and first-time voters. Among those who voted were thousands of emigrants who returned by aircraft or ferry to take part in the world's first direct national vote on gay marriage. Many shared their journeys on social under the #HomeToVote hashtag. Read »
