Colorado students rally for voter registration ahead of anti-gun school walkout

Colorado students rally for voter registration ahead of anti-gun school walkoutColorado teenagers will kick off a voter registration rally on Thursday ahead of the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre on Friday, when students across the United States plan to walk out of class to protest gun violence. The Vote for Our Lives event in the Denver suburb of Littleton, home to Columbine High School, where 13 people were gunned down in 1999, will feature survivors of shootings -including the Feb. 14 massacre in Parkland, Florida - and other speakers, organizers say. Student walk-outs have become part of an ongoing, youth-led movement to demand stricter gun control laws that emerged immediately after the attack by a gunman who slaughtered 17 people at Parkland's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.



EPA inspector general opens new probe into Pruitt's travels

EPA inspector general opens new probe into Pruitt's travelsBy Valerie Volcovici WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Environmental Protection Agency's inspector general will investigate agency Administrator Scott Pruitt's use of his official security detail on recent personal trips, the latest in a string of congressional, White House and internal probes into his spending on security and travel. The investigation comes at the request of Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, he announced on Thursday, a month after he asked Inspector General Arthur Elkins to look into Pruitt’s "unprecedented use" of his taxpayer-funded security detail documented in six weeks of obtained schedules and travel logs. “While I consider matters of personal security to be extremely serious, personal security should never be used as a pretext to obtain special treatment," Whitehouse said.  Destinations to which Pruitt was accompanied by his personal security detail included Disneyland, the Rose Bowl football tournament and college basketball games.

Black men arrested at Starbucks want change in U.S. racial attitudesTwo black men who were arrested at a Starbucks Corp cafe in Philadelphia while waiting for a friend said on Thursday they hoped the widely publicized incident would lead to changes in U.S. racial attitudes. The men, Donte Robinson and Rashon Nelson, said in an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America" that they wanted to use their arrests a week ago to ensure no one else would undergo a similar experience. The arrests sparked protests and a decision by Starbucks to close more than 8,000 stores on May 29 to conduct racial-bias training for employees.



Judge rejects Missouri governor's bid to dismiss criminal case

Judge rejects Missouri governor's bid to dismiss criminal caseBy Sue Britt ST. LOUIS (Reuters) - A St. Louis judge on Thursday rejected a bid to dismiss a criminal invasion of privacy charge against Missouri Governor Eric Greitens stemming from a sex scandal involving an extramarital affair. Judge Rex Burlison ruled against the Republican governor's legal team, which filed a motion last week accusing Kim Gardner, the Democratic circuit attorney for the city of St. Louis, of prosecutorial misconduct. Burlison ordered new depositions for some witnesses and reprimanded prosecutors, calling their handling of evidence "sanctionable" but "capable of being cured." He also warned dismissal was possible if problems occur again, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.
