    (CNN)Several heated exchanges between the Kenosha County Circuit Court judge and a prosecutor Wednesday stunned viewers of the Kyle Rittenhouse homicide trial, but it's a kind of scene not unusual for this specific judge, experts and attorneys told CNN. Judge Bruce Schroeder twice admonished Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger for his line of questioning as Rittenhouse testified. While on the stand, Rittenhouse broke down in tears explaining the events that took place in August 2020 where he fatally shot two people and wounded another.To those who may not have heard of Schroeder until this week, Tuesday's exchange with Binger may have come as a surprise -- but to those who have worked with him, it emphasized his reputation. His word is final. Judge in Kyle Rittenhouse trial is viewed as tough juristSchroeder -- the longest-serving active judge in Wisconsin's trial courts -- is viewed as a tough jurist, the type of judge who's not afraid to make difficult decisions, no matter the response. "He has a reputation for doing what he believes is the right thing and being an independent...
    The trial is underway for a former Northwestern University microbiology professor who prosecutors said stabbed his boyfriend to death with the help of a stranger as part of a sexual fantasy. A jury was selected in Cook County, Illinois on Monday for the trial of Wyndham Lathem, 47, in the 2017 death of his boyfriend, Trenton Cornell-Duranleau, a 26-year-old hairdresser from Michigan. Lathem is accused of enlisting Andrew Warren, an Oxford University financial officer, to fly from England to Chicago to help him kill Cornell-Duranleau, the Chicago Sun Times reported. The prosecution, during opening statements Monday, argued that Lathem — a wealthy and powerful academic known for his work on the bubonic plague — took advantage of a 'young man just trying to make his way in Chicago.' However, Lathem's attorney painted a different picture, saying that Warren, who has pleaded guilty in Cornell-Duranleau's murder, committed a crime against both the defendant and the deceased. 'This was nothing more than a crime of opportunity that had two victims,' defense attorney Kenneth Wine. 'Andrew Warren took the life of Trenton Cornell and ruined the life of...
    Photo by Peter J. DeCarloStatue of Shaynowishkung (He Who Rattles, also called Chief Bemidji)On June 6, 2015, a bronze statue of Shaynowishkung (He Who Rattles, commonly known as Chief Bemidji) was erected in Library Park on the shore of Lake Bemidji. Meant to honor the Ojibwe man’s life and bring people together, the statue was the result of a six-year community-driven process. Shaynowishkung was an Ojibwe man who lived on the south shore of Lake Bemidji with his family in the mid-nineteenth century. He wore and used zhiishiigwan, rattles that were shaken to ward off negativity. He was not a traditional chief, but a spokesman for about fifty Ojibwe people. When settler-colonists arrived in the area in 1888, Shaynowishkung told them the name of the lake: Bemijigamaag, an Ojibwe word that means “water running crosswise through the lake.” They misunderstood, however, and thought he was giving them his own name. As a result, they called him Chief Bemidji, and some sources state that later on they named the city of Bemidji after him. He was a beloved figure among Ojibwe...
    A second alleged rape victim of That '70s star Danny Masterson tearfully told a Los Angeles criminal court today how she woke up naked to find him raping her and when she tried to fight him off, he hit her and spit on her, calling her 'white trash'. She also claimed that the Scientologist actor laughed at her when he admitted to having anal sex with her while she was passed out. Christina B - a former model who lived with Masterson at his Hollywood Hills home for six years - took the stand today on the second day of the preliminary hearing to determine whether he will stand trial on the three rape charges he has pleaded not guilty to.

    George Floyd’s younger brother broke down in tears on the stand Monday as he recalled seeing his sibling for the last time at their mother’s funeral in 2018. “George just sat there at the casket... He would just say ‘mama, mama,’ over and over again,” Philonise Floyd, 39, told jurors in Hennepin County court on Monday. “And I didn’t know what to tell him, because I was in pain, too. We all were hurting. And he was just kissing her, and just kissing her. He didn’t want to leave the casket.” Two years later, his older brother died after former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin held his knee on Floyd’s neck for over nine minutes as he pleaded he couldn’t breathe and bystanders begged for mercy. Chauvin, 45, is now on trial for second and third-degree murder as well as second-degree manslaughter. Three other officers—Tou Thao, Thomas K. Lane, and J. Alexander Kueng—will face trial in August on charges of aiding and abetting second-degree murder while committing a felony, and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter with culpable negligence.

    The 'A-Train Ripper' who was arrested covered in blood after going on a subway stabbing spree was indicted in New York Supreme Court on Thursday on two murder charges and two assault charges. Rigoberto Lopez, 21, had previously confessed when he was arrested for the deadly slashings which happened over the course of 14 hours beginning on February 12  along the A line of the subway system in New York City. During the court hearing, Lopez appeared before Judge Laura Ward and sat with his head down - never looking up - as he was surrounded by his two lawyers and a Spanish interpreter.  When asked how he pleaded to his charges, Lopez remained silent.  The court and his lawyers agreed to a '730' mental health evaluation to determine whether he is fit to stand trial - a process that usually takes a couple of weeks before completion. The A-Train Ripper, who was arrested covered in blood after going on a subway stabbing spree, was indicted in New York Supreme Court on Thursday Rigoberto Lopez (pictured), 21, who is allegedly mentally...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The two men stepped from the shadows as the car turned off an upscale shopping street into a residential area located on the far edge of the rioting that swept through Minneapolis. It was after midnight. A pair of metal dividers blocked the road, and the men stepped to either side of the car as it stopped. Both carried assault rifles. “Do you live here?” one of the men asked, politely, but forcefully. His hands rested casually on the rifle slung across his chest, and a pistol was strapped to his belt. “We have lots of old people here,” he continued, satisfied that the driver, an AP reporter, posed no danger. “We don’t want anyone to get hurt.” A week of civil unrest has led some Minneapolis residents near the epicenter of the violence to take steps to protect their homes and neighborhoods. They’ve stocked up on fire extinguishers and buckets, and formed scores of loose neighborhood watch groups — aided by a cluster of apps and social media — to share what they view as suspicious...
