CHARLESTON, South Carolina - A white cop in North Charleston was charged with murder on Tuesday after a video was released clearly showing the officer fatally shooting an unarmed black man in the back.

33-year-old Michael T. Slager said he feared for his life because the suspect took his stun gun in a scuffle after a traffic stop on Saturday. The video clearly shows the officer firing eight times as 50-year-old Walter L. Scott slowly ran away.

Officer Michael Slager shot Scott eight times as Scott has his back to him and is running away. It appears that Scott was unarmed.

Slager is charged with murder, the FBI is investigating, and once again a police-involved shooting has continued

Now that Windows 10 development is in full swing, with the new Spartan browser and new Technical Preview builds appearing on a regular basis, let’s take a step back for a moment and address one of the most confusing things about the next version of Windows. When Microsoft announced its newest operating system, the surprise was not that it was coming, but that Windows would be skipping 9 and heading straight to 10. When asked about Windows 10’s name, Microsoft never gave a clear answer. So why, exactly, is Windows 10 getting the nod instead of 9?

Version numbers, schmersion numbers

You may remember that between Windows 3 and Windows 7, versions of W

Kevin Bollaert, 27, of San Diego, California was charged and found guilty of conspiracy, identity theft and extortion, all relating to his ownership of the now offline websites Ugotposted.com and its sister site Changemyreputation.com.

Bollaert created the site Ugotposted.com which allowed users to upload explicit photos of girls. The practice is known as “revenge porn” as most of the girls who were pictured had scorned the men who posted them. What made Bollaert’s site different to other “revenge porn” sites was that uploaders to Ugotposted had to include explicit details about the girls in question, including names, addresses and Facebook links. The website at times had up to 10,000 ima

ALIQUIPPA, Pennsylvania - Part of the “American Dream” to many of us is home ownership. They are losing their property all too often because of heartless, insensitive laws made by uncaring politicians or county officials.

It's getting more expensive to live in America and when you retire, you had better have enough to pay you property taxes because the county will take it. Much, if not most of Forest Park in the Tualatin Mountains had been owned by people who could not pay their taxes, seized and given to the city of Portland.

Land of the free.

Even if you pay off your mortgage in full, own your home outright, you can easily

We landed on Mars over 11 years ago with our robot mars mission, Opportunity. And what an opportunity is was.

Opportunity landed on the Eagle Crater on January 2004 and accomplished this marathon in 3,968 Martian days or Sols. Available on the NASA site is the path that the vehicle crawled along since 2004. It passed through important Martian craters such as the Eagle, Endurance, Victoria and Endeavour. Last year, the robot became the champion in the longest distance traveled on an extraterrestrial surface by defeating the former Soviet Union’s moon rover called Lunokhod 2.

“This is the first time any human enterprise has exceeded the distance of a marathon on the surface of another wo

Dogs don't usually gather at the funeral home in Cuernavaca Morelos, Mexico, which is why their presence was so surprising at a ceremony for Margarita Suárez earlier this month.

Suárez spent her life feeding stray animals like dogs and cats in her hometown of Merida Yucatan. After she died, her family held her funeral in a town more than 830 miles away. There, her family was joined by a pack of stray dogs.

Her daughter Patricia Urrutia shared photos of the dogs on her Facebook page, along with a description of what happened. Per a Huffington Post translation:

[M]y mother was a lover of animals, she couldn't bump into one and not give it a little bit of food, sometimes even before [f

DUSSELFORF, Germany - There are circulating reports that a passenger on the fateful flight may have used a cell phone to record video of the nightmarish final seconds of Germanwings Flight 9525.

French magazine Paris Match and German newspaper Bild reported that a video recovered from a phone at the wreckage site showed the inside of the plane moments before it crashed.

"One can hear cries of 'My God' in several languages," Paris Match reported. "Metallic banging can also be heard more than three times, perhaps of the pilot trying to open the cockpit door with a heavy object. Towards the end, after a heavy shake, stronger than the others, the screaming intensifies. Then nothing."

SAN FRANCISCO — Attorneys for Robin Williams' wife and children are headed to court in their battle over the late comedian's estate.

The lawyers are scheduled to appear before a San Francisco probate judge on Monday, as they argue over who should get clothes and other personal items the actor kept at one his Northern California homes.

In papers filed in December, Williams' wife, Susan, says some of the late actor's personal items were taken without her permission.

She has asked the court to exclude the contents of the San Francisco Bay area home she shared with Williams from the jewelry, memorabilia and other items Williams said the children should have.

Police in Glades County, Florida, have few clues as to what actually happened. Early Monday a van with 18 people inside ran a stop sign, crossed a four-lane highway and plunged into a shallow water-filled ditch. Eight people died. Ten others, including a 4-year-old child, were injured, according to police.

Investigators don't know why it happened, Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Greg Bueno said. The driver died, and police haven't been able to interview passengers yet.

"Our hearts go out to the families of the victims," Bueno said. "It breaks your heart to see something like this happen."

Some relatives of the crash victims, all of whom were from the Independent Haitian Assembl

Legendary North Carolina Coach Dean Smith, who took his college basketball team to two NCAA championships, always coaxed the best out of his players. Now, a month after his death, he has issued one final ‘thank you’ to every full-time player who ever hit the court for him.

Trustees of Smith’s estate mailed out $200 checks to 180 players with an accompanying letter that read, “enjoy a dinner out compliments of Coach Dean Smith.”

Player Brad Daugherty said on ESPN that he would ignore the coach’s orders to spend the money on dinner out: “Nope, I’m going to get it matted and framed, and stick it on my wall so I can look at it every day.”
